The good morning thread



  • Evening!

    …leaders debate tonight 😩

  • Oh, I’ll stick that in my day planner!

    Actually, I’m watching an episode of the expanse.

    did I say that the latest mr robot kicked arse? Because it bloody did, y’know.

    Well, it was a bit of a mass-debate from the leaders – chortle 😊

    Not heard of the expanse. I've been watching a little more TV of late, World on Fire, which I thought was pretty good and just started on His Dark Materials and watched the first Episode of the BBC's adaptation of War of the Worlds – promising start.

  • yeah, i have his dark materials scheduled to catch up on soon. i'm kinda hoping that it might be a watch-with-my-eldest thing once his younger siblings have gone to bed.

    morning :)

  • edited November 2019

    those leaders are fervent mass-debaters, i'm sure!

  • Evening!

    Oh, yes, the right programme for sharing with… at least I imagine (not got kids but I was one once!)…

  • Oh, first in…


    Come on, report in – good weekends?

  • good weekend!

    went for the chrimbo works do on friday, which involved karting (of course i did!), followed by a posh restaurant and booze. lovely jubbly.

    saturday was basically a normal one with two football games in the morning, then a house full of random screaming kids for a few hours. lazy sunday.

  • mornin'

    weekend was ok. that's it.

  • pfft.

    get a mac better weekend!


  • nothing holy about it, robin!

    i dun wanna go to work any more :(

  • actually i take that back, i don't want to work for other people anymore.

    but then there's that pesky 'money' thing, alas...

  • Weekend, again! How does that happen…

    Err, mine was okay, last weekend, can't remember quite what I was doing (and no drink was involved! Unfortunately) – quiet day today but out with a few people tomorrow.

    Hope you've recovered from your house-full @chris, just in time to do it all again this week, I imagine (did you get to watch Dark Materials…?).

    Yes, fuck the jon @slater! Who needs the money… oh, wait… A sidehustle leading to a strategic withdrawal, might that be possible?

    No news from @Vaskerville or @Black Window recently?

  • still not started on dark materials, nope :)

    i think i may take a christmas off the booze - had a 'few' on saturday, and although not a terrible hangover, it certainly isn't all that enjoyable these days.

    monday now, is it?

  • Tuesday, comin' right up! Fuck.

  • Morning!

    And now, the weekend, almost. I can see it, just…

    I've been a bit off the booze recently – novelty wise. Give me a cup of tea! 😁

  • i've had none since last saturday, which is pretty good going, i reckon - well done me! 😃

    morning, y'alls! and a happy weekend to all who endure!

  • Pissed it down all day today. Maybe better weather tomorrow?

    Also where's vaaaaaskaaaa? :(

  • Went out this morning, weather was surprisingly lovely! It then pissed down as expected.

    Now it’s attempting to be sunny again, whilst also blowing a gale.

    Fucking hate winter (maybe just this particular place’s climate).

  • went a bit hogwild with the alc last night. almost had to up-chuck this morning.

    ramen with cut-up bacon strip got me back up sunneh as a bastid.

  • Hnng, bacon...

  • Umm Bacon. Afternoon!

    Only one more sleep until… the election! 😂

    //waits for the chaos

  • i nearly said happy hump day then, but it's not, right? 😂

  • Morning!

    Well, it could have been seen as a political hump day (here)! 😫

  • edited December 2019

    i was hoping the hump was going to be boris lying in the middle of the road as we drove over him. fuck sakes, britain! don't go calling yourself 'great' anytime soon, you buncha pricks.


  • 😂 Yes, it was and wasn't a shock – and don't you love the reality distortion fields they all inhabit, when they talk about why what happened, happened. Quite astounded by some of the Labour seats that fell.

    Oh, and, Scotland!

    Independence Day!?

  • edited December 2019

    I would like to see Scottie independence. Scottindependence.

    And also that Corbyn fucks off and iunno spends the rest of his life making jam in his garden shed.

  • Ey, it will be hard to avoid an Indi-ref now, but, Boris will try (for as long as possible)…


  • I really like corbyn, he would have been great for the uk I reckon. ‘Tis a shame.

    Hope Jess Philips has a go and turns her socialism up a few notches now. I’ve a feeling that labour are going to bolt back to boring centrist shit though.

  • Morning!

    Nicola's ramping things up.

    I'm probably a bit if a centrist (Lib-dem, Green) but I'll be interested to see how things develop with the leadership – we need a healthy opposition and we haven't got one for sure now, whichever way you look.

    And, going back to Scotland, however much I love the place, it's ridiculous that we find parties with 3.9% of the vote having 48 MPs and another with 11.5% only having 11! PR anyone?

  • Ssssssssssunday!

  • (I think?)

  • No. Shortestday™


  • …evening!

  • Long overdue buenos dias my lovelies please accept my apologies but...

    I know I have asked for your support many times before with this that and the other but I need your support once more.

    Earlier today I received some truly upsetting news.

    After seven years of medical training, my good friend has been struck off after one minor indiscretion. He just happen to fall in love and slept with one of his patients and now can no longer work in the job he loves. What a waste of time, training and money. A genuinely nice guy, and a truly brilliant vet.

    My Christmas prezzie to my lovelies xxx's

  • 😁🤣 Haha, well delivered…

    (I hope it wasn't a hamster!)

    Morning B' – morning ~all


  • Happy random day between Christmas and New Years!

  • Bonjour mes amours


    P big x

    Sipping some Haig whiskey at present with Trains, Planes and Automobiles on in background.

    Blessed wishes to my fazies

    Happy New Year my lovelies xxx's

  • Afternoon 🧛‍♂️

    …and Happy New Year/Decade!


  • i'm back in the office today. creepily quiet 😀

  • A little late but Happy New Year to all.

    Hope everyone's lives are filled with good health and good times.

    May this year be better then the last.

  • heya bogno, happy new year to you too :)

  • Hey! @Bognostraglum – happy new year [dancing banana]

    Morning ~all

  • Hah! 🍌... jesus. Peanut butter jelly time!

    morning 😎

  • 🍌 Oh my, poetry in motion-less!

    I'm happy now 😊

  • Morning. Having spent a fair bit of time driving around Bangkok recently I feel it ought to feature in the driving test or something. Honestly, the scariest driving conditions evar.

  • Oi oi, saveloy!

    Never driven in Bangkok, but did notice that you could hire CBR1000 Fireblades there for quite cheap! Thought better if it, of course 🤣

  • :D driving in Bangkok is a truly sensory experience.





    All of that happening at exactly the same time. Rush hour is worse, a billion* mopeds hit the streets all at the same time


  • The afternoon 30 minute downpours always caused the mopeds to mount the pavement and ride along under the shop shades to shelter from the rain - fucking mental obstacle course!
