It makes you sound prattish. Just saying. grin

I find the use of "desist" on a talk website a bit overly precious, unless its quoting a legal situation, which in these circumstances, it isn't.

'Twasn't just you cheryl. (Did you see what i did there?) It's a trend. Enjoy your naughty juice.

(I love your user name btw).

Y'all are killing me here. We still use some of these in the American South, with nary an objection.

A goblet of hippocras twill soothest thou furrowed brow Mardy - and bestow an air of plentious merriment, this eventide...

Even back to Georgian times, think Hogarth

MardyBra Fri 03-May-13 20:35:41

Oh FFS. I've just seen "twixt" on a thread now. Some of you are just tormenting me.

pointythings Fri 03-May-13 20:34:02

Is gin Victorian?

::puts BIWI on list for 'totes amazeballs'::

Maryz Fri 03-May-13 20:25:11

'tisn't t'internet, 'tis t'interweb anyways.

I'm saving my righteous wrath for those who:

1) Put threads in the wrong topics so they appear on my Active even though I have hidden the topic, thus necessitating the hiding of said thread

2) Make said threads so active they appear in Most Active so they appear back on my screen

me'thinks twats who gotten all over the place should be shot at dawn reprimanded and the other twats who say "oooh it's middle English" should join them realise language moves on. Innit?.

LaQueen Fri 03-May-13 20:21:23

Bewithced Verily, shall it pleaseth me to delight thine ears with more fulsome outpourings of decourous words and fanciful utterings... wink

MardyBra Fri 03-May-13 20:19:57

I'm on the [gin]. I think that's a bit more Victorian.

MardyBra Fri 03-May-13 20:18:37

Hiding topics is imperative to my MNing experience. Unless some bugger pops one in the wrong topic, I am no longer bothered by pushchairs, breastfeeding/FF or camping.

starfishmummy Fri 03-May-13 20:17:19

Gadzooks. I think a flagon of wine is exactly what I need.

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Fri 03-May-13 20:17:12

I meant do some more of it, and have some wine

MardyBra Fri 03-May-13 20:16:41

Totally agree cecinestpas.

And I love your user name.

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Fri 03-May-13 20:16:19

Love that LaQ do some more wine
