Sorry to hear about your cat, Tamo. It can be heartbreaking. *hugs* Take care of yourself. I hope you get to speak to your godmother.

I hope you're less anxious when you're actually at work, Beckie, and have a good shift.

Cacoethes 22-06-2022 12:06 PM

Thanks lindsay
I don't think i will be less anxious.
There's a whole thing going on with a creepy stalker guy.
It is very worrying
I'm anxious that he's going to come in again

How are you?

one_step_closer 22-06-2022 12:12 PM

He's barred right? I hope he doesn't come in. It's not fair that it's making you anxious.

I didn't get to sleep until about 6am because of hay fever. Going on the walking group today so I'm hoping the pollen count isn't high.

tamobhuuta 22-06-2022 12:18 PM

Good luck both.

not_so_insig 22-06-2022 02:03 PM

Oh I am sorry that you didn't sleep well last night Lindsay.

I have been out this morning and am currently wondering if I should put something in the slow cooker.

not_so_insig 22-06-2022 02:25 PM

Never mind I have decided on something else that doesn't need a slow cooker.

tamobhuuta 22-06-2022 02:50 PM

Slow cooked things are yum.

not_so_insig 22-06-2022 03:13 PM

I have very little room in my fridge after my tesco shopping order yesterday. Unfortunately the slow cooked item would generate left overs and it's too warm for it to be left out. I cant freeze it as I have no room in my freezer.

one_step_closer 22-06-2022 04:51 PM

First world problem, Dawn! What have you decided to have?

How is your day going, Tamo?

tamobhuuta 22-06-2022 05:34 PM

I am pleased, turns out our useless psych is leaving!

one_step_closer 22-06-2022 05:42 PM

I hope the new one is better for you then.

tamobhuuta 22-06-2022 06:10 PM

Me too. But I don't care much as long as they write my prescriptions - my GP isn't allowed.

Cacoethes 22-06-2022 07:09 PM

Barred guy came in (he didn't come in yesterday)
He wasn't happy about being barred but didn't make too much of a fuss.
I was literally shaking!
Hopefully he won't try and come in again.
I am so so very tired

Definitely a first world problem. I had Chinese style pork steak and chips. Finished off with a white chocolate magnum.

Cacoethes 23-06-2022 07:29 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 23-06-2022 11:14 AM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 23-06-2022 11:21 AM

I'm ok thanks.
Glad i got all my outside things done this morning.
It's pouring down!

How are you?

not_so_insig 23-06-2022 11:38 AM

It's brilliantly sunny here and very hot - 22 degrees!

tamobhuuta 23-06-2022 11:41 AM

Grey here, quite muggy.

Cacoethes 23-06-2022 11:45 AM

Only 19 here
It's not cold. Just cloudy!

not_so_insig 23-06-2022 04:32 PM

It's definitely hot here today. It's currently 27 degrees.

one_step_closer 23-06-2022 04:32 PM

My weather report is cloudy and mild.

How is everyone's day going?

Cacoethes 23-06-2022 04:40 PM

Only 23 here
And very cloudy!

I'm ok. Just very bored.
How are you guys?

one_step_closer 23-06-2022 04:45 PM

Boredom is not good. Have you tried reading any of the books I sent?

I didn't get up till 12.55pm which is way too late and I hate myself and am worried. Got all my housework done though.

Cacoethes 23-06-2022 04:52 PM

I haven't! I will start one now!
For some reason my brain didn't think reading was an option
Silly brain

Well done for getting your housework done
I'm sorry you got up late though

one_step_closer 23-06-2022 06:12 PM

I hope you can concentrate and enjoy at least one of the books but liking all of them would of course be better. You don't really read much do you? Maybe your brain was thinking about the things you usually do.

I wish I could sort myself out with the getting out of bed thing. I'm trying to tell myself it was because the night before I was up all night with hay fever so maybe I needed this sleep. Still not really acceptable in my view though.

Did anyone notice having more light on the longest day?

Cacoethes 23-06-2022 06:19 PM

Thanks :)
I haven't tried to read in ages
My concentration isn't fantastic!
It's sad because i was ALWAYS reading when i was a kid!

If you were up all night i would think that's a good reason for sleeping in!

I didn't notice.
I'm not the most observant of people tbh lol

one_step_closer 23-06-2022 06:30 PM

Reading is a good escape.

I don't know if I noticed any more light either. I stick to my bed time schedule and it might have been a longer light while I was in bed.

How has your sleep been recently?

Cacoethes 23-06-2022 06:35 PM

It is

My sleep has been hit and miss
Still getting up really early for some reason
Think that's just what i do now!
Constantly exhausted though!

Zurg 23-06-2022 08:00 PM

I'm sorry about your cat, Tamo <3 I hope you Got to have the call with your godmother today.

Dawn, that dinner sounds delicious!!! And boo, to 27 degrees!!!!

Lindsay, i Think it's okay when things slip a bit every now and then. I know it's difficult to not be overly critical when it's yourself but i Think that maybe you're being a bit harsh on yourself???

Busy as a bee, Beckie!! I hope you enjoy the gig tomorrow :)

I feel like ****. Went to Rammstein concert yesterday. 40.000 people attended. I have never been more sober and yet i have never felt so drunk after a gig. I didn't consume anything while there so absolutely no one could have drugged me.
I am seriously getting too old for this ****!!! I love the concerts when the music starts blasting and people go crazy. Everything else, i hate!!! Anxiety made me smoke more than half a packet of cigarettes. It's gonna take me weeks to recover from this. I am a wreck right now.
But hey, i was roasted by fire, made half Way deaf from evil german heavy metal and swooned over the entire band. Still worth it!!!

Cacoethes 23-06-2022 08:08 PM

Thank you! :)

40,000 people is insane!
The Olympic Park (where the concert is tomorrow) is 60,000 capacity which is a bit scary!
Sounds like you enjoyed the actual concert though which is good!
I agree that all the other stuff that goes with it is anxiety provoking! I am very anxious about those things tomorrow!

Cacoethes 24-06-2022 08:21 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 24-06-2022 11:39 AM

Morning all.

Has anyone had a pm from a user asking for money? I have and reported it to Jenna.

Cacoethes 24-06-2022 11:45 AM

Hey Dawn

Yeah i had a weird message.
Didn't read the whole thing as it was very obviously spam right from the start so i didn't bother!

not_so_insig 24-06-2022 11:54 AM

Yeah it was an attempt at getting money from people. Dont send peeps!

Cacoethes 24-06-2022 11:59 AM

There's so much spam around these days i think it's rare for people to fall for it now.
My nanny is 81 and she gets the phone calls and hangs right up on them.
But i guess some vulnerable people will still be taken in by it.
These scammers are disgusting

not_so_insig 24-06-2022 12:05 PM

Yes I know someone who doesn't know how to use the Internet. She doesn't know what Google is or have an email address. When she gets transferred onto universal credit then she will have to use the Internet and I worry that she will fall for the scammers.

I have a call blocking phone which means anyone who isn't in my contacts has to announce themselves so I know who's calling. It stops the majority of scammers and I can block their number.

Also my dad had a scam text on Saturday. Fortunately I was able to tell him it was a scam one but not everyone in their 70s would know.

Cacoethes 24-06-2022 12:33 PM

Unfortunately you need the Internet to do most things these days.
My nanny attempted to have Internet and a laptop. She did a computer course at her library but she just can't get to grips with it!

My phone comes up with 'suspected spam' if they call so i manage to avoid them. I don't get many anyway

nonperson 24-06-2022 02:08 PM

I just read that scam PM too. For a while I thought it was FROM Jenna so was going to reply with "Wtf, have you been hacked?" but then I eventually cottoned on. *eye roll*

I'm having one of those days anyway where I'd be an easy target for scammers...!

Cacoethes 24-06-2022 02:14 PM

Hey np!

I miss the days of the fun spam we would get here.
Multi coloured dog poo bags, ugg boots at discount prices....

one_step_closer 24-06-2022 02:50 PM

I think I got that PM too, I forwarded it to Jenna.

Fun spam was very fun. How on earth did we not fall for it? :laugh:

Cacoethes 24-06-2022 02:53 PM

I know lindsay!! XD

one_step_closer 24-06-2022 02:58 PM

Have you left for hella mega yet? How long does it last? Are you staying there for a bit?

My same friend who went to all the MCR gigs is going to hella mega too. I don't know how she finds the time, she's a psychologist. Maybe she's a private one.

Cacoethes 24-06-2022 03:10 PM

I'm waiting for the train to kings cross now!
Gates open 4pm, estimated finish 10:30pm
So a long time! So glad i got seated ticket. I would NOT be able to stand for that long!

Maybe! Unless she saves up all her holiday time for concerts?

not_so_insig 24-06-2022 03:39 PM

I have discovered today that my brother is going to hella too but at Huddersfield not London. He has been a Green Day fan since like forever and played Weezer at the weekend that's just been.

Cacoethes 24-06-2022 03:49 PM

Yeah same. I remember when my step dad bought me American Idiot by green day on cd. Played the **** out of it!

one_step_closer 24-06-2022 05:50 PM

Green Day are my favourite band who are playing. I hope you enjoy yourself.

nonperson 24-06-2022 07:04 PM

I've seen Green Day live a couple of times. ****ing awesome! So so so good live.

I'm so jealous =(

nonperson 24-06-2022 07:04 PM

Apparently Green Day also makes everyone start using the F word =P

Zurg 24-06-2022 07:17 PM

I am a firm believer in the feeling that swearing is good for the soul!!!
