I did see the kiwi. It'd look worse if it wasn't cut in half, just a brown hairy ball :ermm:

I'm also not sure why the fried egg appears to have little brown arms

maii 23-10-2022 12:41 AM

I like gingerbread flavor.

Hope everyone is managing, know its not easy.

I managed to polish our furniture but that was the extent of my house cleaning. I lost energy and desire sad to say.

Any good movie recommendation? Sometimes just need distraction from reality.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 04:07 AM

Holy fu k i am drumk
So many shots
Tequila rose is milkshake

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 09:43 AM

Morning everyone!

I'm not hungover. In fact, i think I'm still drunk XD
Ordered a maccys breakfast :-D

nonperson 23-10-2022 10:21 AM

Morning all.

I take it you had a good time then, Beckie?

Greasy breakfast is always the answer.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 10:42 AM

Yeah it was good fun!
I had no idea how much drama there is though!
The McDonald's helped!

How are you?

nonperson 23-10-2022 11:03 AM

The drama always comes out with alcohol!

I'm... meh. Feeling a bit odd/whiney this morning, maybe it's the weather. Wish I had people to go get drink with =( I'm supposed to be seeing a couple of people today but no one has actually made any official plans so I dunno what's happening.

You got much going on today?

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 11:20 AM

Yep! Everyone's sleeping with everyone, one of the girls was crying all night asking everyone if they're annoyed with her, some people didn't come to E's birthday drinks....
I had no idea of any of this!
It was funny though because when we walked in to our pub (it was closed to the public by the time we got there) and it was absolute chaos! We were all behind the bar making ourselves drinks, big boss's wife got the tequila rose out of the fridge and just started pouring a load of shots and refilling them over an over again! Mental!
Everyone hugged me when i came in because no one expected to see me out! People were just shouting 'omg Beckie!!!'
Working at a pub is so much fun!

The weather can have that effect.
If i lived closer I'd definitely go for a drink with you!

Just pilates and asda.
It's pouring down with rain!

nonperson 23-10-2022 11:32 AM

Wow, that is a lot of drama. Fun that you had the run of the pub though =P

It's probably not the weather tbh, just seems to emphasise it. And thanks! I think you'd drink me under the table with all those shots and cocktails XD

Pouring here too, it's meant to ease off a bit this afternoon, not that I have anywhere to go at the moment so it doesn't matter. I guess you can't avoid it =/

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 12:07 PM

I feel really, really sorry for whoever is on the opening shift today.....:ermm:

Haha! I think it would be fun!
If you're ever in my part of Bedfordshire, give me a buzz!
Don't know why you'd ever come here because there's **** all here but you never know! XD

I'm heading off for pilates now. I'm going to get soaked!
I was gonna go to asda but have decided i can't be bothered. Just want to go out and get home as soon as possible! I may go for a coffee though. I always crave coffee shop coffee after a night out!

nonperson 23-10-2022 12:44 PM

I guess it won't be any of the people who were creating the mess last night? XD

It would be fun. Bedfordshire isn't somewhere I tend to go but I would like the point out that we will be in the same place at the same time at the beginning of December. Could say hello and have a pre-Shinedown drink?

Hope you don't get soaked! It has actually stopped raining and is sort of sunny here now so maybe that weather will work its way up to you.

tamobhuuta 23-10-2022 02:03 PM

Hi everyone. Sounds like an excellent time Cacoethes!

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 02:30 PM

Nope! XD

Omg yes we should totally have a pre shinedown drink!

I did get soaked...even with my umbrella! I've had to put the heating on to dry my hoodie and trainers XD
It had stopped and was sunny by the time i was finished though!

Hey tamo!
It was a lot of fun!
How are you?

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 03:16 PM

Afternoon everyone.

I'm glad you had an enjoyable night, Beckie.

I'm sorry you're not feeling so great, NP. Do you want to see the people you might be seeing today?

How are things, Tamo?


not_so_insig 23-10-2022 03:22 PM

Hello all. I have washed and dried my hair.

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 03:24 PM

Snap, Dawn. Well, I've left mine to dry itself. How are you getting on so far today?

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 03:26 PM

Thanks lindsay!

You up to much today?

I went to pilates, got a coffee then went to asda. I wasn't going to bother with asda but i went anyway. I accidentally stole a bag for life! I expect the police to come and arrest me at any moment XD

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 03:33 PM

You can't accidentally steal a bag for life, it was deliberate I say! I'm definitely reporting you. Do you have much to do with the rest of your day.

I've washed my hair and changed my bedding. I don't think I've anything else to do really except I've gone off Zox wristbands and I want to go through them and see what I want to keep and what I want to sell but it seems like too much to do right now.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 03:43 PM

Hahaha XD
Just add 'theft of a bag for life' to my criminal record!

I don't have anything left to do. Bit bored actually!
Might just learn some Spanish. Yo estas muy cansada!

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 03:45 PM

I'd first like an explanation of how you can 'accidentally' steal a bag for life. (Just getting you prepared for your interrogation.)

What did you just say in Spanish? Are you enjoying learning it?

nonperson 23-10-2022 03:53 PM

Hey all.

I have also washed my hair and am letting it dry. And working myself up to changing my bedding.

No one's messaged me so I guess they're busy seeing other people, or each other, without me. I would have liked to see one of them - it's one of the students from last year but equally it'd just be talking about her relationship dramas and my friend's general dramas so I guess I'm not missing much.

Yo tambien estoy cansada.

maii 23-10-2022 04:36 PM

Seems like its going to be a rough day - was a rough night for me. Good to see you all seem upbeat.

Feel sick; honestly.

nonperson 23-10-2022 04:45 PM

So upbeat...

Sorry you feel sick. Take it easy today if you can, maii.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 04:52 PM

Well, I'm so used to taking my own bags that i automatically hit 'i brought my own bag' on the screen. Thought damn, ok, well there's an option at the end to select number of bags so I'll just do that, but again, went on autopilot and pressed 'no bags'.
Think I'll have to go on the run!

I said 'i am very tired'
I'm not actually tired but 'yo esta muy cansada' was literally the first thing that popped into my head when i woke up!
It is fun to learn!
'Yo necesito ayuda!' (I need help)
Always useful XD

That sucks np :(
And a dick move from your friends

Sorry to hear that maii
Hope you feel better soon!

I'm like 99% sure i brought a banana in from the kitchen to have as a snack but i can't find the ****er anywhere!!!

nonperson 23-10-2022 04:54 PM

Has anyone seen this 15 minutes of fame thing from the BBC?


You can enter to go on different shows! I'm really tempted to enter the Doctor Who one to be an alien =S

nonperson 23-10-2022 04:56 PM

I might be wrong about my friends but... I strongly reckon that's what's happened.

Did you eat the banana already?

I spent ages searching the house earlier for a hoodie I wanted to put in the wash and couldn't find it anywhere... but turns out I'd already put it in the washing basket.

not_so_insig 23-10-2022 05:11 PM

I am bored so spent a **** ton in amazon. They're all coming tomorrow but I have the boiler people coming to do their annual check so probably will come at the same time. Unfortunately it's an all afternoon appointment so I can't leave the flat tomorrow even if amazon were coming.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 05:13 PM

Oh my god this is so freaky because LITERALLY 10 minutes ago I decided i was going to be a famous actress and you just posted that link!!! It's fate!
Definitely entering!

I'm pretty sure i didn't eat it because i couldn't find the skin either! I found it, it was mostly under the sofa???
I don't remember dropping it!

Haha! I've definitely done that more times than i care to admit!

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 05:16 PM

Ok ive applied for doctor who, casualty and eastenders×
Fingers crossed!

nonperson 23-10-2022 05:55 PM

15 seconds on TV might be your leap into famous actressness! Especially if it's the EastEnders one. You.might not get noticed much on Casualty.

I should apply for the Gardener's World one too. But I want to be an alien more!

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 05:57 PM


Yes you should! You could end up being the next alan Titchmarsh!

I put something on the local free site and one of my old care coordinators has replied saying yes to it XD
Someone else is already coming to pick it up tomorrow though

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 06:08 PM

That's a shame you didn't get to see anyone, NP. Well done with washing your hair. You can get your bedding changed! I'd love for you to be the next Alan Titchmarsh, I'd watch your show!

I would hate to be in the background in any show. There's a documentary about Glasgow Central Station and that's where I 'rarely' meet my brother and when I'm watching it I'm always hoping I won't see myself!

Take care of yourself Maii.

I think I'll let you off with the bag situation, Beckie. Your explanation was good enough. That would be hugely awkward if you sold to your old cc, do all your treatment people live in the same area as you?

I hope the boiler check goes well and you get all your parcels, Dawn.

nonperson 23-10-2022 06:15 PM

I'd be an absolutely terrible TV presenter! I've accidentally been in the background on a TV show before though, I think it's finally been taken off iPlayer by now. That was so embarrassing because I thought I'd done a really good job of avoiding the cameras. But I'd be ok with being an alien on Doctor Who because no one would know it was me! Apparently you have to submit some sort of video of yourself if you get selected... =/

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 06:17 PM

Out of all the shows I'd end up being on it's most likely going to be 24 hours in A&E or 24 hours in police custody XD
Which is actually filmed in Bedfordshire sooooo......:ermm:

I think it's only her that lives in town. I actually saw her in town the other day! Bumped into her and her daughter a couple of times in asda too. And she's very active on the local selling pages!

I think i remember you mentioning that np!
A video?? Lol

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 06:17 PM

It would be so funny and cool if Beckie was selected. Did you apply for Doctor Who then, NP?

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 06:18 PM

Lol Beckie. I don't want to see you on either of those shows!

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 06:18 PM

I will make sure to mention you all in my speech at the oscars!

Well, the police custody one is filmed in luton and i avoid luton at all costs (there have been like 3 stabbings this week or something)

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 06:19 PM

Aiming high then, Beckie? :laugh:

Oh dear. Definitely stay away from Luton then.

not_so_insig 23-10-2022 06:27 PM

I was in the background of Bargain Hunt. I have been on John Cravens Newsround and my signature (which was the Care Bear in my avatar) was briefly featured in the ryl documentary.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 06:28 PM

Always! ;p

Yes i tend to! I only go there when I'm sectioned. Because the psych wards are there. And then the A&E there when I've been taken there from the psych ward.
That's why it was so ****ing weird going for that scan last week! Because i was there of my own free will!

nonperson 23-10-2022 06:31 PM

Did you not read the terms and conditions, Beckie? =P it mentions a video but not a lot of detail other than that.

Lindsay, I did apply for Doctor Who and Gardener's World so I can meet Monty Don. Might change my mind if I get selected and have to submit this video thingy though. But that's ages away =)

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 06:38 PM

Of course not! I'm far too important to bother with terms and conditions XD

Its started pouring with rain again! Yaaaay!

Argh! Why do i never have any money???
I need to buy clothes!
And pay my council tax......but CLOTHES!!!

nonperson 23-10-2022 06:56 PM

Who needs clothes.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 07:03 PM

I'm trying NOT to get arrested XD
And tbh, literally like 90% of my clothes are way too big now! Like both my jogging bottoms are legit unwearable because they won't stay up!!!

Major thunderstorm going on! So cosy in here with my hot water bottle and fluffy blanket hearing the rain and thunder and seeing the lightning!

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 07:04 PM

Oh and new season of handmaid's tale starts tonight!

nonperson 23-10-2022 07:08 PM

They don't have drawstrings around the waist?

I had the thunder and rain about an hour ago. It was nice. Big rumbly thunder and some flashes of lightning.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 07:17 PM

They didn't really do much!

Apparently it's like a 200 mile storm or something?
Idk. I'm pretty sure i read that somewhere! I may have made that up XD

I made food but now I'm not hungry :(

not_so_insig 23-10-2022 07:23 PM

I haven't got any thunder or rain.

nonperson 23-10-2022 07:29 PM

Eat the food anyway.

I dunno what to do for dinner...

not_so_insig 23-10-2022 07:47 PM

Chilli is my suggestion.
