So what was so special about C08 that earned it its own topic?

(77 Posts)


Does not mention Moudlies.

As am probably a year out.

BrittaPerry Mon 08-Oct-12 22:41:37

It must have been amazing...

poorbuthappy Mon 08-Oct-12 22:42:01

ah ha!!!!!

take on me...

MaryZed Mon 08-Oct-12 22:42:46

Oh, excellent, where did that come from?

I know!

But look at the dates.

They speak of sweeping stiff into one place, meessily.

poorbuthappy Mon 08-Oct-12 22:43:51

by the way you are right with the year cos it was the christmas the twins were born

was hoping for James Bond at least!

ninja Mon 08-Oct-12 22:44:15

it was the last one when anyone had any money?

HoneyDragon Mon 08-Oct-12 22:44:30

Was this not the beginning of the segragation Christmas as we know it?

Well, I think we were staying at my owner's aunt's house that year.....

ripsishere Mon 08-Oct-12 22:44:57

Is this it? <disappointed>

Way2Go Mon 08-Oct-12 22:45:15

<< is it wrong to be a little bit disappointed. sad >>

StripyShoes Mon 08-Oct-12 22:45:25

<waves> Hello! not that any of you know who I am, cause I am a saddo lurker

<passes wine>

MirandaWest Mon 08-Oct-12 22:46:21

It was definitely what you crossed out I am sure. I was ill that Christmas. All the exciting stuff happened and it took me Ages to catch up.

You may be right, Honey! (missed most of it due to being at owner's aunt's house not on puter much......)

StripyShoes Mon 08-Oct-12 22:47:10

The dates on the threads are odd. Some are started in 2006, but finished years later! BUT THE TOPIC DIDNT START UNTIL 2008 shock

rips and Way2Go?

See this fingre here? The one on its own? The middle one? All upright and pointy?
That for you both. smile

NewStartSameStory Mon 08-Oct-12 22:49:06

Christmas 08 was mouldies if my memory is correct. It was the christmas before I joined mn. And it's not secret it has been there agaes. What is more surprising is that there are two of the exactly same title topics in one area. One with only one thread in it.

Wotcha, StripyShoes.

Welcome to unlrkerism.

What sort of wine is it?

Think very carefully before you reply...

HoneyDragon Mon 08-Oct-12 22:50:34

I think before we stray any further we should do a head count and suit up.

This place is clearly abandoned for a reason. I think we need to buddy up.

It's not in the Topics List though is it, cleverclawgs?


usualsuspect3 Mon 08-Oct-12 22:51:44

Moldies was 4 years ago?

It seems like only yesterday.

dearprudence Mon 08-Oct-12 22:52:04

The dates are odd. this one for example - a few posts in 2006, then nothing til 2011. Yet it's in the Christmas 08 topic. Why?

Bagsies NewStartSameStory.


gallicgirl Mon 08-Oct-12 22:52:20

08? Seriously?

TuftyFinch Mon 08-Oct-12 22:52:21

This thread was created for me to travel back to '08. You've messed it up now. I won't be able to do it. You've eaten my worm hole and it's messed up my time/space continuum. What have you done???

ripsishere Mon 08-Oct-12 22:52:50

How did you find it Chaos?

StripyShoes Mon 08-Oct-12 22:53:49

Ummmm, one made with grapes? From Waitrose? <hesitant>

IamtheZombie Mon 08-Oct-12 22:53:59

Is Zombie allowed to join?

MaryZed Mon 08-Oct-12 22:54:04

I was on a break in '08, so I missed most of moldies. I had to catch up afterwards, which I tell you was hard-going.

HoneyDragon Mon 08-Oct-12 22:54:13

<<looks suspiciously at Chaos>>

Then how did you find it?

You are Chaos aren't you? Or are you a malevolent sprite luring us in here away from the main board?

Alopogies, Tufts.


You hair looks much nicer in the TwentyTens thouhg.

TuftyFinch Mon 08-Oct-12 22:55:24

It's now in 'Active'. It took me years to build my tome machine. My life's work. Gone. Futile. Wasted.

NewStartSameStory Mon 08-Oct-12 22:55:25

It does appear on the topics list periodically. I got lost in here once before. Shall I linky the other one? Assuming I can find it again?

It is like someone did a really bad job of introducing a christmas topic and cba to file stuff properly.

StripyShoes Mon 08-Oct-12 22:55:40

Maybe it is the Ghost of Christmas Past in a Chaos Halloween suit? shock

Now, that would be telling, rips Adrian Chiles nakedly lured me there.

The prov-en-arnce Stripy, obvis.


HoneyDragon Mon 08-Oct-12 22:57:11

I don't like it. Someone discombobulate her and see what happens

Yus, lovely Zombo, you're in.

No qualifications cept manuoevereabilty.


StripyShoes Mon 08-Oct-12 22:58:43

<hangs head>


<offers gin instead>

Nope, I don't loike it when you do that, turns me all Brummish.

HoneyDragon Mon 08-Oct-12 22:59:23

<<pokes Chaos with stick>>

DevaDiva Mon 08-Oct-12 23:00:01

Hope we don't all get sucked into the worm hole I'm not doing all that again grin

Buddy up people it could be a bumpy ride <grabs stripyshoes in the hope she will share grape juice>

PrincessPumpkinshoutsBOO Mon 08-Oct-12 23:01:04

<pokes nose in> is this another take over? I was absolutely useless in the last attempt, I bring brew cos I'm preggo and 2008 chateaux la Mumsnet wine to share, (have also brought gin to bribe HQ if they find us) smilesmile

ripsishere Mon 08-Oct-12 23:01:39

<pokes Chaos with Ade> grin.
I've just been onto my balcony and someone in the flats opposite was taking photo's of me with a flash confused. Why? It's 6am FFS.

Tufty is a tome machine something for moving big books?

Chaos Adrian Chiles are you trying to make me dinner reappear?!

NewStartSameStory Mon 08-Oct-12 23:03:42

here is a whole new hole to play in According to the topics list there should be 31 threads in here... But I can't see ANY hmm The other house swaps topic seems fine. confused

House swaps (184)
House swaps (31)

MaryZed Mon 08-Oct-12 23:04:12

I've just realised and I am vair upset.

I have just posted on a Christmas thread AND IT'S ONLY FUCKING OCTOBER shock

<reports self>

ripsishere Mon 08-Oct-12 23:04:54

I don't have time to go hole searching. It's almost the hour for trying to rouse my DD for school.

MaryZed Mon 08-Oct-12 23:06:02

I've tested NewStart smile

ripsishere Mon 08-Oct-12 23:06:20

onthebottom he isn't everyones cup of tea. He is certainly mine though. I think of him as a marmite person.
DD and DH are aware of my passion for Mr C. DD even made me a little shrine with photos and a tea light.

OliviaLMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 08-Oct-12 23:07:27


StripyShoes Mon 08-Oct-12 23:08:11

Who is Adrian Chiles? confused

OliviaLMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 08-Oct-12 23:08:36

In answer to the OP
I think the super duper keen Christmas ponces wanted to talk December 25th early but I don't know <wheels out maternity leave excuse as per>

Themumsnot Mon 08-Oct-12 23:08:43

Oh here you all are. They've been looking for you all over on AIBU since sometime in 2012.

StripyShoes Mon 08-Oct-12 23:10:33

But Olivia, some of the threads span FIVE YEARS!! hmm


ripsishere Mon 08-Oct-12 23:13:40

stripey, this is he although you shouldn't believe everything you read in that, or any other rag.
He is, as we speak, winging his way to KLIA so we can spend a loverly couple of hours exploring the nooks and crannies of my flat.

Way2Go Mon 08-Oct-12 23:15:10

This is like an episode of LOST

TuftyFinch Mon 08-Oct-12 23:16:36

Yes, bottom it's my new invention.

Valpollicella Mon 08-Oct-12 23:19:53

Careful people. What with all the exploration you might find the loop hole to the secret troll topic lemme know if you do

Way2Go Mon 08-Oct-12 23:22:05

The threads are all the same old shite..... grin

December 1997....

Oxfam Unwrapped - yeah yeah but it's still a joyless slap in the face to actually receive one, isn't it? (97 Posts)

Same old, same old,

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Mon 08-Oct-12 23:28:54

Wait for me! Im coming to the past too... <<runs after thread like Chunk in The Goonies>>

OliviaLMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 08-Oct-12 23:31:01


This is like an episode of LOST

Save the cheerleader save the world

Themumsnot Mon 08-Oct-12 23:35:50

I've just been perusing my posts from the Christmas 06 threads. Plus ca change and all that. Though it was quite fun to revisit the naff presents thread and realise that I never have topped that jar of marrow chutney from SIL.

Porper belly (apt) laughs at IWozOnMatLeeeeave being rolled out again.

How long can you use that for OliviaLMumsnet?


I fink.

OliviaLMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 08-Oct-12 23:51:20

I genuinely woz on mat leeeeeeeave though.
I started back on again in Jan when DS1 was 9 m/o.
Even if I hadn't been off work I wouldn't have been here I was beyond ill that xmas. Didn't get out of bed for about 8 days iirc
Had some kind of gastric flu thing and was b/f and lost about 1.5 stone in a week.
Went to PILs and had Xmas dinner with no gravy shocksad on a tray in my room.

Pore, pore OliviaL.

<<sends out sympathy for eons ago>>

IamtheZombie Tue 09-Oct-12 00:08:30

No gravy? shock

FriggFRIGGORIFIC Tue 09-Oct-12 00:46:36

<opens wardrobe>

<pokes head through>

Oooohh... What's all this then?

FriggFRIGGORIFIC Tue 09-Oct-12 00:56:34


I've killed it.

BertieBotts Tue 09-Oct-12 01:05:13

I must have missed this one also, I joined in the January following.

1997? Was there a mumsnet in 1997? shock

ripsishere Tue 09-Oct-12 01:10:47

'Christmas dinner with no gravy' Saddest quote I saw yesterday. I don't understand that.
My Christmas dinner this year will be gravy less I imagine. DD wants to go to Tony Roma's Rib Shack hmm

timetosmile Tue 09-Oct-12 22:51:30

So when's Jack Harkness turning up then, eh?
