I selflessly rescued an abandoned cat during the COVID-19 Pandemic



I'd like to sit in a field watching bats at 3am

Could everyone please gently caress off and not come to the post office, ta

Especially if you're going to ignore all social distancing and cram in constantly so I have to keep telling people loudly to wait outside


Hiding in the loo because people wouldn't stop coming up to my counter before I called



Bats in a field at night sounds heavenly. Except maybe the 3am bit

My old job had 2-week stints at the field usually in some random mountaintop borehole drilling project for some underground exploration or bedrock analysis and while it wasn't directly my responsibility, I always jumped into the opportunity to gently caress off from the cesspool that is our main office to watch the scenery and listen the creepy mating sounds of foxes and jackals at night when the machinery hummed.

We had a campfire and a metal samavar for tea, me and my mate from the office, no phone reception and it was bliss. Until my manager called me in because he literally couldn't function without someone babysitting him, that is.

I miss having the office - site work - travel routine sometimes then I also remember how many social events I missed, how many relationships got sour because I was in some bumfuck town 400 km away and how many second dates I couldn't go because I got a call on Friday night to pack my poo poo and roll out.

It's kinda nice that I now have the full day to myself, but I am knackered.

Also I've eaten too many Aldi vegan sausage rolls, and they've just added a fake cheese and onion oneone 😮😮😮

Owls are a sign of a false implanted memory. You were probably abducted and probed by aliens last night. Congratulations.

Lucky it wasn't a screeching Owl, those fuckers sound like a cat being violently murdered.

Jackal sounds are like a group of babies/kids laughing at you and it's unnerving as gently caress in the middle of the night.

I think you're missing out, but you do you. Life's too short to appreciate even a fraction of the good movies, books and videogames in the world, I'm not really interested in pressuring people into seeing something they don't want to.

Football isn't a movie, book or videogame. Guess we can't expect much from a football fan.

Football in and of itself is actually really cool and good. I can understand taking issue with certain ancillary aspects of football like the fandom or the ridiculous sums of money involved but chiding someone for enjoying a good game of foot does not make you sound as edgy and cool as you might think

I don't think I'm cool or edgy, I just find that football is enjoyed by morons.
