Thanks lindsay
I have sparkly kind of burgundy/purple apart from 2 naila on each hand that are black but with stars in the same burgundy/purple colour as the other nails. :-D
I have also bought a top online. Should be coming tomorrow!

one_step_closer 19-08-2022 06:08 PM

Sounds cool. What's the top like? I hope you like it IRL.

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 06:42 PM

I don't know how to post pics on here but it's plain black but it's got like black see through (opaque??) Sleeves/straps.
I'm not describing it that well lol
I asked my friend's opinion and he preferred that one. I did too. Even if it doesn't look good, it's next day delivery so i can easily just send it back and order one of the other options!
I've also bought some combat type boots with a chunky high heel. I hope i can walk in them!

one_step_closer 19-08-2022 06:48 PM

Oh yes, don't want any tripping or having to ditch them for bare feet!

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 06:51 PM

Yep! I will have to practice!
They aren't ridiculously high so hopefully I'll be ok!

one_step_closer 19-08-2022 06:52 PM

I'm sure you'll be fine. What are you doing with the rest of your evening?

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 07:10 PM

Not a lot.
Just watching random films!
How about you?

tamobhuuta 19-08-2022 07:14 PM

That all sounds very fancy!

one_step_closer 19-08-2022 07:17 PM

I'm supposed to be reading but can't focus. Will put the TV on soon, there's a documentary about a women's prison I want to watch.

What film are you watching now, Beckie?

How's your evening going, Tamo?

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 07:24 PM

I really need to stop spending money now XD

I love things like that lindsay

I'm watching moonfall. The moon falls out of orbit, earth gets ****ed up. From what i can tell, there is something alive in the moon. NASA has gone to sort stuff out.
I seem to be in a sci fi mood today. With a hint of apocalypse

Zurg 19-08-2022 07:31 PM

According to doctor who, the Moon is in fact an egg that's about to hatch!!! I might be back later with more interesting facts!!! XD

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 07:35 PM

That's what it reminded me of too! XD

Zurg 19-08-2022 07:46 PM

My bunny is offended because i've obstructed her access to the kitchen by closing the door….. She is sneaky!!! I don't trust her out there alone!!!!
The present silence indicates shenanigans….. but i am too comfy on my couch to go and investigate….

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 08:01 PM

How very dare you!
She's probably chewing something to pieces to punish you

Zurg 19-08-2022 09:18 PM

I know Beckie!!! It borders on animal abuse!!!!

tamobhuuta 19-08-2022 09:32 PM

I bought chocolate :) om nom nom

chinahorse 19-08-2022 09:41 PM

Ooo, what sort? Chocolate wins.

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 10:00 PM

You should be ashamed of yourself Zurg ;p

Yum chocolate!


chinahorse 19-08-2022 10:08 PM

Hey :-)

Why is there nothing on tele?

tamobhuuta 19-08-2022 10:09 PM

Maltesers, stars, counters and buttons.

chinahorse 19-08-2022 10:13 PM

Good selection there.
I never think to buy malteasers but love them when someone gets them for me.

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 10:30 PM

It really is **** isn't it!
Think i might just go to bed lol

I always used to hate maltesers and i have no idea why
They are actually delicious
I never think to buy them either come to think of it

not_so_insig 20-08-2022 03:45 AM

Tv is **** lately especially during the day. What did I do as a kiddie when I had 3 and a half channels?

nonperson 20-08-2022 04:25 AM

Dark chocolate Maltesers FTW BTW

So awesome they deserve double cool abbreviations.

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 08:32 AM


Morning everyone!

nonperson 20-08-2022 09:17 AM

Morning. How's everyone?

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 09:40 AM

Hey np!

I don't feel very well today

How are you?

nonperson 20-08-2022 09:56 AM

I also don't feel very well today...

Have you got a quiet day ahead?

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 10:07 AM

Oh no :(

Yeah nothing to do today
Might do asda later if i feel up to it

nonperson 20-08-2022 10:14 AM

Try not to put any pressure on yourself. Just see how you feel.

I'm just going to potter and do laundry and decontaminate the house from the smell of charcoaled potato (which I can't smell but it will be there...)

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 10:18 AM

Yes i will
I don't do well with not doing anything so today is going to be tricky!
I've had to stop myself from booking a pilates class. Even though I'd for sure throw up if i attempted it :eyeroll:

Ah yes. I read about your hash brown incident!

nonperson 20-08-2022 10:54 AM

Maybe you can still "do" things interspersed throughout the day. Like, sit down for an hour and do some googling or top shopping and then get up and do some cleaning or some laundry and then sit down again while that's doing its thing. That's sometimes how I function a nothing day. Little bits at a time but you end up feeling like you've been busy.

Yep, don't drink and use the oven, kids.

tamobhuuta 20-08-2022 10:58 AM

Sorry you guys aren't feeling great.

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 11:02 AM

That's a very good idea np
I'll try and do that

I was once banned by my cpn from using the toaster because i hadn't slept in 2 days and nearly set the toaster on fire

Thanks tamo
How are you today?

nonperson 20-08-2022 11:09 AM

Eep. I think that was a wise move.

I wouldn't have fared any better with the toaster either. It gets stuck down sometimes and because I can't smell I wander off and it's burnt when I remember to return to it! And that's when sober, lol.

Hi tamo.

tamobhuuta 20-08-2022 11:20 AM

I'm ok. We're going over to my sister's for her birthday this afternoon and I was getting all worried in case it was a proper party, with strangers. But I was sensible and asked her and she said it's just us. I'm glad I asked :)

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 11:26 AM

Sounds like you need a new toaster!

Sounds nice tamo! Hope you enjoy it :)

nonperson 20-08-2022 11:39 AM

Nah it's not broken enough quite yet!

That does sound nice, tamo. Will there be cake?

I'm going out later too to see a colleague DJing.

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 11:43 AM

Have fun np!
Do NOT burn any more potato products when you get back!!

nonperson 20-08-2022 11:57 AM

I plan to eat them all before I go out this time. Not sure I'll be drinking tonight but... who knows. It's one thing going to the very quiet and familiar place we were at yesterday but this is proper out out so... I may just hide in a corner somewhere.

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 12:06 PM

Out out can be daunting!
It's the hen do next week and I'm both excited and freaking out at the same time!

nonperson 20-08-2022 12:12 PM

I couldn't honestly tell you when I last went out properly but I trust and like the people who I'm going with so I know they'll look after me. They looked so excited when I said I'd come too. And surprised, they had to keep asking if I really meant it lol.

It'll always be better than you think it's going to be.

Zurg 20-08-2022 12:26 PM

Beckie, i bailed on my friend on her hen night because i was legit shitting myself because our common friend couldn't make it. They all Said it was okay but i still feel guilty and it's 7 years ago. But i was scared my fear and awkwardness would have ruined it for the others.
I don't drink so being sober on a night that traditionally inspires a lot of alcohol also made me brick it!!!

Morale of the story is, people forgive you if need to cancel. But it might take a while longer before you forgive yourself.

I hope you sister's birthday Will be nice, Tamo!!!
And i hope going out Will be fun and feel safe, NP.
And Beckie, i recommend lots of cola and crisps or chocolate. But on the more serious note, mint flavoured stuff helps ease the feeling of nauseua!!!

I went shopping a wee while ago and i was legit freaking out for leaving bun bun in her cage, alone!!! O_O
She forgave me. And then she bit me when i tried to stop her from sticking her head down my cola glass…. She has mighty sharp teeth!!!!

nonperson 20-08-2022 12:32 PM

Ginger helps with nausea too. Toast and rice cakes are my go to for something bland that seems to settle my stomach a bit.

I bet she does have sharp teeth!

Geordi bit my foot the other night in bed. Totally unprovoked. That was not a nice feeling either!

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 02:01 PM

Sounds like you have some good friends np!

That's my fear also zurg!
I do really want to go though
And I've already bought an outfit and new makeup so I have to go really!

Ouch! Bunny bites hurt!

I have been to asda and bought ginger biscuits to nibble on.

Cat bites also hurt!

one_step_closer 20-08-2022 03:47 PM

I hope you feel better soon NP and Beckie. Look after yourselves.

I got up late because I was up early for my psychiatrist appointment yesterday so that's annoying. It's mainly annoying because I had loads of housework to do so have not long sat down.

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 03:55 PM

Thanks lindsay

That's a reasonable reason to get up late though!
Well done for doing the housework

My top came and it is perfect! I tried it on with my jeans and it looks great. Very pleased
Also. A layer of the glass in my oven door spontaneously shattered. I heard a horrific noise but thought it was the baking tray falling down but nope. Glass everywhere!
Can't really find the strength to deal with it right now tbh

one_step_closer 20-08-2022 04:04 PM

That must have given you such a fright with the oven. You can deal with it later if you're not up to it now. Will it mean you need a new oven? I wonder how it happened.

I'm glad you're pleased with your top. Online clothes shopping can sometimes be tricky. You must have a good eye.

nonperson 20-08-2022 04:04 PM

Thanks Lindsay.

Beckie, they are good friends but they're both leaving for their next student placement next week which sucks.

I'm glad you found the perfect top =) but omg how random about your oven!

I also wanted to say:

"Can you dance like a hippogriff, nah nah nah, nah nah nah, nah nah nah"

Needed to share that random earworm.

one_step_closer 20-08-2022 04:06 PM

I've never heard that song NP and I refuse to look it up although my brain is already guessing what that part sounds like. Do not want an ear worm!

How are you getting on?
