  1. good stuff thread.

    Went to another one last week. Was Ancient Egyptian theme (I was wearing a magnetic bracelet - Mummy Returns stylie), which appealed to me nicely as I love the period, but some of the things were not that good looking. You wouldn't see this sort of shit on Art Attack. It was (at one point) the most technicalogically advanced escape room in da hood. Which it did have a lot of clever triggers, which apparently if we took something out which we put something in previously, the system would think we were still back at that point and stuff which would advance you after that wouldn't activate because it thought you were still at the previous stage. We did get stuck at a few points and we did have a walkie-talkie which we could ask for some hints. Some of the puzzles seemed a little silly, one in particular we had to ask where part of the solution was, as we guessed the last part of it. But we escaped, which was the main thing.
  2. House buying is the worst

    The fence issues continue... During the aftermath of that windy Ali thing, it blew hard on my trees and the other stone portion of our wall facing the neighbours driveway fell off a bit. Luckily not damaging their automobile, action must be taken swiftly. This was after I replaced one portion of the wall with a wooden panel and pinned the wall to their garage, that connector had been shaked out. Managed to get a tree surgeon over the weekend to trim the shit out of them, I'm going to have a look over the sides to see if there are any potential leaners which have the potential to fuck me over in the future and saw them off at the trunk. That cost £250, was the best quote I could find on short notice, a little more than I would've liked but not bad considering the work. Someone quoted 800 quid. As for the wall, the neighbour is a builder as his neighbour on the other side and said he/they would replace the wall with some other stuff with a concrete bottom or something for cost, which he said would be about £180, did a sneaky call to Mummy's partner who is also a builder to ask if that was a good price and said it was. So we said to neighbour if he did the work and sent us the invoice we'd pay for it. Plus he's got more of an incentive to get this done as he isn't going to want anything falling on his driveway.
  3. Netflix

    Final Space... well that ending was disappointing as fuck. It fucked over the whole flashback dynamic and made it a waste of time. You can tell that was a show written with Will Arnett in mind and he wasn't up for it/asked for too much money.
  4. Forum Telephone ??

    I'm down with dis feeng.
  5. Netflix

    I know this isn't Netflix, but I couldn't be bothered to make a topic about Sky Box Sets. But I've been working my way through The Blacklist. I can see why Spader was given the voice of Ultron after seeing this performance (my only experience of him beforehand was Stargate) It seems to be wavering in season 4, but not a bad programme to watch. I'm now working through Blacklist Redemption, which seems a dodgy tack-on. It's one of those things which you watch and think... It looks alright, but there's no point behind the premise.

    Weren't you there when we did it at one of the meets?
  8. Job woes/wins

    I KNEW IT! right on schedule too. Those previous timeframes I gave were red herrings. Hope you sort yo' knee out.
  9. What song(s) are you really into at the moment?!

    I've had to listen to this non-stop for several periods of time. Mainly the commutes to/from work
  10. good stuff thread.

    We took about 40 mins. Which they said was a good time but might've been lying. I took the sense of pride anyway. I like to think I was key in escaping. Especially for the first two puzzles. After that the team spirit kicked in and everyone had their moments. My fave puzzle was one that I didn't figure out. Off to the Games Workshop HQ and bar tonight for some Shadespire action. And drinking. Moreso of the former though.

    Did an escape room yesterday with work peeps. Was themed like a creepy old school toy store with dolls bits n shit. Smashed it.
  12. Netflix

    I've found myself watching a fair few cooking things recently. It started with Sugar Rush then attempted watching Nailed It but the host was too annoying to watch past the first episode (one of the lifelines in the show is that she annoys other contestants) as if she's trying to be the new Oprah. And fails. Then tried Americas Worst Cooks which was alright but it was a "celebrity" series and just wasn't that engaging. Zumbo's Just Desserts was very entertaining though. It makes me want to learn how to make cakes and stuff. Hopefully that and Gordon Ramsay's to Hell and Back can tide me over before a new series of Hell's Kitchen.

    That's what inspired me to get my eyes checked and I discovered I needed glasses. When I was learning to drive the squinting to see signs was on the rise... Ye got nothing to lose by getting dat checkup.
  15. bad stuff thread.

    Due to some spat between Virgin and UKTV, all of UKTV channels have been pulled from our Virgin service. they tried to make it seem like some sort of swap by saying we'll be getting Paramount Channel and a few others... but a quick Tweet revealed the truth. The missus has already organised the switch to Sky. Cannot miss Taskmaster.
