I live on my own and own at least 10 bowls. Four should be fine

The truth is I should keep on top of my washing up, I know. There's only one of me, and I have three bowls, so that's... wait... hang on, I've got this... three bowls for every me. A fourth could open up so many possibilities though, like a late evening bowl of soup, without the danger of being left bowlless at breakfast next morning. And, you know, having to do the dishes out of necessity rather than choice, which is a thought so terrible I feel I shouldn't even type it.

That's (embarrassingly) quite a comfort to hear, Tiger_Lily I love hearing mundane details about other people's lives, to compare them to mine. How many cups and mugs do you have? I have nine (not counting glasses)

I live alone and I have four bowls, four large plates, eight mugs, six teaspoons, six tablespoons, six knives, six forks, two wine glasses, two pint glasses and six smaller glasses. I use the dishwasher every three or four days. I use it when it's not full because I'm wasteful like that. I sometimes fill it with ***8364;20 notes.

^I have about ten of each thing. I would use the dishwasher more but it's a pain to run it, then I forget to empty it, and when I open it again everything in it needs rewashing because it's got things growing on it...

Wondering if the banoffee trifle I made this evening will taste alright, I guess I'll find out tomorrow when I eat it.

It is quite odd to find yourself in a situation where someone else is having an anxious meltdown and you have to be calm.

^Evangelical Christian 'archaeologists' dug up some bits of rotted wood on Mount Ararat (the supposed resting place of the ark and also the answer to a question that once gave me victory in a game of trivial pursuit!) and declared they'd found it. I think this has happened a few times. Every time one of those nutters stumbles upon a bit of wood up a mountain they declare they've found the bloody ark.

You're going to burn. Creationists have the best books.

Being up at night, I'm pretty sure, is just avoidance. I need to push myself to stay on normal time.

And yeah, same here. I feel in complete control of things when I'm alone at night.

Yeah They're going to drag me into the dark web and beat me now

I like night mostly because I know no-one will call, knock on the door, look over my shoulder. It's bliss but makes me depressed after a while.

I understand completely.

If someone looked over my shoulder now I would find it very disturbing.

Whether to apply for Oxford university :/ they charge 75 just to apply, then their fees are considerably higher than anywhere else. Imagine it's a more competitive and high pressured environment than other universities, which wouldn't be good for me. But on the other hand it's one of the best universities...

^^ I wouldn't really recommend the nocturnal lifestyle. When you do have to interact it makes it even more difficult Plus time seems to go twice as fast!

The female voice on the recorded message on the DWP phone line sounds mildly irritated and also slightly drunk today.
