I need to get better at just rejecting people and moving on. Having to re-reject people in a polite way every few days is fucking exhausting.

If Henry Cavill was moving on me my hands would be too busy to type forum posts and my mouth too busy to talk about anything.

When moving to iMessage means buying an iPhone and possibly an Apple desktop or laptop computer, that's a very tough sell for many of us.

If only it wasn't the premier platform for keeping in touch with one's family and friends, it would be easier to give up.

Ah, see, the trick is to just not keep in touch. :P

You can make them think you're even shadier by now suggesting Signal.

Reading this I've realised I've officially reached the point where I've lost touch with the internet cause I don't even know what half these messaging services are.

Decided to go for a walk along the Thames because the weather is beautiful today. Find myself wondering how many other capital cities can make you feel this far out of the city, whilst still this close to the centre.

Aww, that's so nice to have :keke:

Now if only the city's air wasn't so toxically polluted...

Been thinking about how difficult and expensive it'd be to fuck about with getting my passport renewed and updated. Not like I can afford to go abroad right now but you never know, I feel like it'd be nice to know that I could if I wanted to without having to fuck around with that level of bureaucratic nonsense at the time cause it's already been dealt with.

They’ve actually made it pretty easy these days. You can even take the photo on your phone, or just take a code from the photo machine at the supermarket and upload it from there. I was warned to expect a wait of weeks and weeks and had my new passport back in a matter of days.

I believe there will be a small delay whilst they finalise the updates to the design following the death of the Queen, that is the change from “Her” to “His Britannic Majesty” and the replacement of the royal cipher - which I’m not sure has actually been finalised yet, but I don’t know what there could possibly be to debate about? The inclusion of the “III” - but it’s not the bureaucratic nightmare it once was.

Surely it'll just be CIIIR?

Like, yeah, there was always debate about EIIR since she wasn't II in Scotland, but Charles is the third Charles for the whole of the UK.
