My headphones are dying.
Thanks to Inferna for one of the many reasons why I love Dragonite!

My dad is ill in hospital today, having an endoscopy. He's been losing weight rapidly recently, and we don't know why.

I'm fearing the worst and hoping for the best at the same time.

The worst would probably be some kind of cancer. The best would be a stomach virus that some medication can sort out.

Edit: My dad came back from hospital a few hours ago. Unfortunately, the doctors couldn't find anything wrong, so he has to go back for more tests later.

and our worldly woes

 It's either my throat or my sinuses but something is feeling funny and I'm not going to be able to call in sick over the Christmas period so I'm a little worried about it, ngl. Got these "extra strong" Halls but they taste awful so I'm hoping that some decent sleep will do the trick tbh.



 Genuinely developing a great loathing for customers who'll go out of their way to make my job harder when there's no need for it.

 Had a customer doubt and challenge me whilst putting their order through and then after demanding a receipt, they stood there for ages reading through the thing to see if I made any mistakes. It's actually pretty insulting and usually leads to me leaving them until last if I can't just not serve them.

 It's the sort of thing that reminds me to get back on the job search once I'm driving.

The mods are going to be busy today. I just reported a few people who were necroposting, and spamming very inappropriate things.

I can't believe how bad things have become on this forum. I just wish there was more that I could do when the mods aren't around.

My anxiety is the worst it's been in years

Like I haven't been able to look at my phone all day because of it, let alone do a food shop or do any Christmas shopping

I've got to go to work tomorrow and I don't even know how I'm going to be able to

My mum has no understanding of how singing works.

When I'm singing a song I like, which is typically a boy band song, my mum complains I'm singing too deep and that I should sing in a different key. She doesn't understand that when singing at the same time a song is playing, you have to match the key, or else it sounds stupid.

Then she tells me to sing in a different octave, but when I do, she complains that I'm singing too high!

I just can't enjoy singing when my mum is around.

Edit: My grandma annoys me a bit too.

She replaces pretty much every noun with Thingymajig every time she talks.

"I went to the Thingymajig (shop) and met Thingymajig (her friend) the other day. She told me her Thingymajig (daughter) was invited to a Thingymajig (party) at her Thingymajig's (friend's) house."

She will then ask "Do you know what I'm talking about?" and we all scratch our heads trying to work it out!

honestly when she starts to complain id keep the same tune but replace all the lyrics in the song with "shut uuuuup shut uuuuuup" but that might not go down well so maybe dont do it perhaps.

i guess this is me being sympathy annoyed that ppl cant just let other people sing for the sake of singing and not treat it like theyre one of the judges on x factor. when im prime minister criticising peoples singing will be illegal,

 Adding blackcurrant to whisky has probably been one of the worst decisions I've made in a long time, ngl.

 It was horrible.

 Oof all we need is for someone to put some orange cordial into their whiskey and we've completed the holy trinity of awful things to put into whiskey. Ginger ale goes really nice with it tho lowkey and probs would go nice with the cinnamon variants.

 Ruh roh, whisky neat can be pretty brutal ngl could settle with dat swanky parma violet gin tho which is like drinking the sweets and pretty noice.

hello shaymins ghost. rip that you died but welcome to the forums,

also want 2 say whiskey is Good. i used to hate it but i bought mid shelf supermarket own brand (dog turd whiskey basically) and was like "why is this so hard to get into, who poisoned the whiskey". once i got a few good single malts bought for me for bdays etc it was one of the best things in the world but i cant drink anymore because im an epilepsy now and i miss it A LOT.

flowers & horticulture kind of fills that gap tho cos i dont want people to think im sittin here bein miserable all day cos i cant drink whiskey or whatever cos thats a bad look,

Oof all we need is for someone to put some orange cordial into their whiskey and we've completed the holy trinity of awful things to put into whiskey.

we'll call it "the unholy trinity". watch it actually take off and be a huge success like those godawful saisons and them dumbass canned craft IPAs with crap like cumin and ambergris in them

p.s. sorry in advance if you like canned IPAs i just get really angry at them,

Ginger ale goes really nice with it tho lowkey and probs would go nice with the cinnamon variants.

despite loving ginger i cant stand ginger ale lol. ill try again one day but the only mixer ill tolerate (whiskey should be neat and only have a few teaspoons of water if its too harsh/open stuff up a bit) is lemonade for mixing with laphroaig because no-one can drink that stuff neat. it makes this smoky hint lemonade n whiskey and i luv it

parma violet gin

p sure people have homemade that stuff before a la skittles vodka? i mean im curious tbh but

I've spotted an empty gym in Pokemon Go. The problem is that I'm not entirely sure how to get to it.
