Re: Coffee or tea?

I stopped putting sugar and milk in my general coffee a long time back so mornings are just espressos. When I do end up getting a plain cappuccino (eg in McDonald’s or Wetherspoon) I took a liking to putting a canderel rather than two tsps of sugar, it does the job along with cocoa powder.

Re: How's the weather?

Bloody typical. The one time we're all told to stay at home unless we absolutely have to go and buy food and medicine and the weather here gets brighter.

Re: What games are you currently playing?

I've picked up my copy of Pokemon Ultra Moon that I had just sitting there for almost two years am and ploughing my way through that. That, and Pokemon Crystal on virtual console.

Re: Something Bothering you?/Daily Doldrums

I got the same thing in my left little finger back in October. It resolved itself after a while (taking time off work helped), though I thought (and Dad agreed) that the root of the problem was probably actually my shoulder. Could that be the case for you? That's a possibility, since I often have t...

Re: Something Bothering you?/Daily Doldrums

So I have a finger and a toe that have been partly numb for weeks. It might be from when both digits were pretty much squished by shoes and shopping bags and it seems neither heat or ice work on lifting it, so not even a hot bath was helping. But I guess it’s gradually coming back, just worried abou...

Re: GDPR

I had to do training about it before I left my previous job and moved out and basically it's more to do with how businesses/companies both online and off handle more types of data about the people that use it within Europe. It's pretty complicated but I don't think it'll necessarily mean the end of ...

Re: The last thing you laughed at?

My OH had an advert for a Cif product come up on his Instagram feed and Christ alive it's like something from Aphex Twin. Or Murfy, one of the two.

Re: Misheard Song Lyrics

I can think of a good few Elton John songs where I spent the whole time mishearing lyrics. Like with Sacrifice for example, I’d hear the line “cold, cold heart” as “coco pops”. Then with Goodbye Yellow Brick Road I misheard “going back to my plough” as “going back to my cloud”, and “hunting the horn...

That old thing on Newgrounds called “Feathers of Scrooge”. It’s somehow still there and still horrific as ever.

Re: Sandwiches

I do gravely admit that I’ve bought train coffee before but it was still not too expensive compared to what I have paid at an actual station. Made Costa look like IKEA.

Re: Smoothies !!!

There was this one I bought reduced a while back which was a tropical flavour but it was frozen and you had to put boiling water in it. The freeziness of it cooled it right down after a short while. Too bad it turns out a bit too watery for my liking.

The new Dr Mario World game is technically popcap style so I guess now I do.

Being able to get a £2 iced coffee and a little cake, along with the sandwich for more or less £3.

Re: Smoothies !!!

Last time I was actively making smoothies was when I had my wisdom tooth out and couldn’t eat hard foods. So I just bought a whole bunch of fruit for then and just fired away at it.

Re: How often do you wash your hair?

This is gonna sound gross but about 1-2 times a week now, mainly because of hair dye. Once it starts fading that becomes 2-3 times a week.

Re: Drinks ?

Ok so maybe I’m not drinking Lana Del Rey levels of coffee but I still consider 4-5 cups a bit much. I have a nespresso compatible machine too and that doesn’t help lol.
