I'll ask! Cheers. Then all I have to worry about is the neighbours complaining about the smell.

I've brought an old electronic dartboard back to life that's been in my basement unused for over ten years. Had to buy a new DC adaptor because I couldn't find the old one. The plastic of the darts has become brittle though, they are kind of cheaply made and came with the board. The plastic tips broke off one after the other after a few rounds of playing and I'm going to have to see if I can get new tips from somewhere tonight. Or maybe just buy a proper set of new darts. Suggestions are welcome.
|>>|| No. 431925
Blimey. I would have no idea how to pick the right tips from that huge selection.
I think I will just buy a new set of mid-range darts. Seems like the most sensible investment. As I said, the ones that came with the board are shoddy quality as it is. Even though the board itself is a good proper board like any other. I think I got it for my birthday or Christmas about fifteen years ago.

People I know are complaining about help to buy mortgages because they're now looking to remortgage and if they repay the government loan then they'll have to spend over a grand on admin, legal and valuation fees plus 25% of the growth in value of their home since they originally took it out. They're claiming that they didn't know any of this when they took them out, the estate agents omitted to tell them about it and they've been mis-sold by the government.

> They're claiming that they didn't know any of this when they took them out, the estate agents omitted to tell them about it and they've been mis-sold by the government.
Kind of a convenient excuse. As an estate agent, you are not liable to tell people about the finer points of remortgaging, unless you've negligently and/or deliberately misrepresented facts in order to close the sale. But even then, a court could rule that the onus to double check all these things was ultimately on the buyer.
An estate agent's responsibilities don't really go all that far beyond accurately presenting a property to a potential buyer with all its flaws. Principles of negligence apply here as well, i.e. you must familiarise yourself in-depth with the property you are selling, but on the other hand, if you can prove that you as the estate agent and man in the middle were misled by the seller and passed on false information to the buyer in good faith that it was correct, you're not even liable for that.

Just under half the lawn dug now. It's starting to get easier but I'm not looking forward to finishing; it's nice to be gardening outdoors at this time of year, especially something this physical.

I don't always watch Ashens videos, but when I do I watch about 50 of them back to back until his brown sofa is burnt onto my retinas like I'd been staring into the Sun.

Did someone find out that he posted here at some point or have I completely imagined it?

Lawn just over half-dug now. Getting blisters in some unlikely places which is the main thing slowing me down; my body's woken up a bit and my muscles are happy for me to do more in each day so I would if it wasn't for the skin falling off my palms. The trick is to get the turf up in unbroken pieces so all the grass seed that's laying on the surface doesn't spill onto the bare soil. May see if the neighbour has one of those long butane torches to run over the places where there's a lot of grass seed.
Snake plant arrived by post so I've re-potted that with a perlite topping and put it in the bathroom. Been throwing out less plastic so I have a huge amount of things I can use as pots but not so much I can use as the bowls for the pots to sit in.

Around the 3/5 dug mark now but the blisters are stopping me going any further, despite putting plasters and gloves over them.
Does anyone have any advice for how to heal them faster or stop them rubbing when I dig?
|>>|| No. 431981
I don't know if they'd work on your hands, but I've used special blister plasters on my feet recently and they're miraculous. Maybe that's what you've already done, I'm not sure.

Someone at work brought in lunch for me. Now I reek of garlic.

He never said if he was or wasn't happy about it. I think he must have been happy though or else he'd have posted that in the /101/ thread.

I bought some chestnuts from M&S tonight for comparison against the Lidl ones from the other week.
The M&S chestnuts are bigger and heavier, and more expensive, while disappointingly, they are less sweet and have less overall flavour. On the other hand, no sign of the dreaded chestnut weevil infestation on these here chestnuts.
Fucking burned my fingertips peeling one just now though.

I flat out don't want today. I want to go back to bed.

I've just had the world's biggest dump and I want you all to know, lads. I feel like I've lost a stone. I'm going to sit here basking in the glorious relief for about another five minutes just to compound the feeling of victory.
It's little things like this that get me through a day.

I had a crap last week that was so aesthetically perfect I don't know if I'll ever forget it. Genuinely amazed at what a bit of fibre in my diet has achieved.

I remember stumbling across a blog online once where somebody documented their bowel movements every day with a high-resolution photo of their poo in the bowl. I think it was actually supposed to be an art project. At least that's what they claimed without any obvious hint of irony.

I just shit myself and had to take some Imodium. Better out than in only applies when a casual cough doesn't trigger the emergency flood button on your colon.
The cat is just staring at me with this pitying look on it's face. Thank christ it's early enough to not arouse suspicion by doing a wash, the missus will be none the wiser. "We needed clean towels, love." Fullproof.

I didn't. Today hasn't been so bad. I'm now in bed reading The Third Policeman, so things could be worse.

Replaced my phone screen for the gorillianth time. Stress ate quite a lot of honey along the way, but I can finally be a proper 21st century cunt again. Can't wait to not be texted by anyone, scroll past her number over and over and break it again in four months.
God, I actually hate life, it's awful.

With each Job interview, I am becoming more and more like Spud from Trainspotting. I just couldn't shut up. However, the intervew panelists did tell me that many of my answers were excellent (it was a competency-based interview). I just hope that they were the most excellent, because I'm currently earning less than a McDonald's employee for my 37.5 and I carn't facking cope.

I think wanking over a girl who was raped and murdered is in somewhat poor taste, yes.

>and was clearly up for a bit of filth.
Tell that to her family.
Also, she looks vaguely under age in the black and white picture on the left. So you're essentially knocking one out to underage pictures of a dead girl. Even Jimmy saville would probably think that's a bit much.

I'm sure you're just joking, but the "it was rough sex gone wrong" shit is the oldest get out in the violent creep playbook of ways to try to get off a murder charge and I hope the cunt who killed her gets bagged, if they have that in Aus'.

At work today someone received a bouquet of flowers and a helium balloon from Interflora as a first anniversary present from her boyfriend.
Everyone said it was a massive show of insecurity on his part and it's his way of marking his territory to warn all the men in the office to back off her. I've had a look online and the flowers cost over £50 and then extra on top for the balloon and vase it came in.

So I guess you're living in an episode of Friends. Expect a barbershop quartet to turn up next.

What did she reckon to it though?
I tend feel like as blokes, we disapprove of that kind of gesture because we don't like seeing some prat let the side down, by causing everyone else's bird to give them that "you never do that" look.
By the same token I feel like birds tend to downplay such gestures and pretend they're embarrassed, when secretly, nothing makes their clit tingle like all the other women in the office sat there with the monk on thinking "my boyfriend never does that."

Everyone sounds like jealous twats. It was at work because she wouldn't have been expecting it so it was more of a surprise.
|>>|| No. 432067
I think she liked it. She seemed more surprised than anything.
For a bit of further information, this isn't the first time he's had flowers delivered to her at work and he's definitely punching above his weight with her. Also, when her marriage was falling apart she had a couple of brief flings with much younger men, although neither of them work here anymore.

Why would he put a balloon in a vase!? That girl will be in a future copy of METRO for all the wrong reasons.

Co-Op Wraps are by far the best - possibly due to the proximity of the shops to my house. Tesco brand are very sweet, and Sainsburies are drier and a little brittle (though i haven't had many of these). Mission brand are awful - something in them give me the feeling to gag; low quality wheat (corn?) or an additive, i don't know.
They're working really nicely as the pizza base for a light lunch (check the heat though, they're wont to burn).
Or for something heavier try a bit of cabbage, carrot and onion with mayonaise.
Perhaps not the quality of post we're used to, but i thought to contribute something.
Would there be much interest in a consumer reviews thread?
|>>|| No. 432089
In my experience Asda wraps are the worst. I've tried Co-op ketchup recently and it's surprisingly a lot better than I expected it to be; I'd pick it over Heinz.
If you want a review thread you might as well hijack >>/nom/12900.
|>>|| No. 432123
Aldi wraps are worth a go. They even do poncey ones with seeds in and garlic and herb flavoured ones, if you're into that sort of thing.
