6 hours of prime childcare in place; triple stacked deadlines looming over me.... Let me see....

AIBU to think that cats should exercise some modesty when suckling their kittens?

AIBU to nick my neighbours plasma TV to pay my tax bill? ( cos it's my taxes that paid for it in the first place!)

AIB-entrepreneurial to sell Fruit Shoots through the gates at my DC school?

still resisting

bananas are just not the same. There is a risk I will eat two bananas and still go to the chocolate machine

WetGrass Wed 04-Sep-13 14:43:43

Pshaw!

I spent a happy half an hour refreshing my on-desk biscuit tin.

Why waste valuable procrastination time and risk avoidable exercise?

Beastofburden Wed 04-Sep-13 13:55:39

must not go to office chocolate machine

must not go to office chocolate machine

(sits on hands)

Actually - I have infected my DC with this malaise.

Yesterday night I had to spring in on Dd that I'd misread the calendar & school started again TOMORROW.

Poor love... spent four hours finishing homework & then missed breakfast to do some more this morning. I threatened to keep driving unless I saw some toast go down her throat....!

ParsingFancy Wed 04-Sep-13 12:36:58

AIBU to tell you I'm doing nothing again today?

(Only because I'm paying for not managing to do nothing yesterday, but we'll gloss over that).

BlackeyedSusan Wed 04-Sep-13 12:30:51

oi you hairy handed troll face, what do you mean diet coke for your trollette? proper mners would give 'em fruitshoot

now is that more like the response you were looking for? grin

Beastofburden Wed 04-Sep-13 12:25:13

ps my boss got back today. Never mind post holiday blues, she seems to have post holiday psychosis, she is all hyper, thankfully not stabby though.

Beastofburden Wed 04-Sep-13 12:24:03

Its OK, it will rain on Friday. the worst thing about coming back to work this week has been looking at all that loverly weather outside the office window envy

WetGrass Wed 04-Sep-13 12:22:19

sigh

And another work avoiding day ahead!

Whatever did we do before MN?

ParsingFancy Tue 03-Sep-13 21:12:38

So, successful work avoidance all day then? grin

WetGrass Tue 03-Sep-13 20:46:33

Nope. Not a happy bunny at work. Cannae do it. It's too hard.

& lost the evening to counselling DD through a homework-related emotional breakdown (the irony!) via a bubble bath for her & mini magnums for two.

HerrenaHarridan Tue 03-Sep-13 19:41:33

Did you get your work done smile

FrussoHathor Tue 03-Sep-13 15:46:43

Aibu to Botox my Persian? And my neighbours British bulldog whilst I'm at it?

ParsingFancy Tue 03-Sep-13 15:41:01

grin sole.

I have just done some gardening in order to put off having to do nothing...

SoleSource Tue 03-Sep-13 15:33:43

Oh the irony Parsing

Beastofburden Tue 03-Sep-13 14:04:49

So we cant hunt trolls but we can bait them?

Gawd MN is a complicated place. See if Olivia needs maternity leave cover.

Pigsmummy Tue 03-Sep-13 13:58:09

I was thinking about starting a Liz Jones thread, haven't seen one for a while. Also think I should put a block on my firewall to stop me sitting in this site when my house is a tip

Repeatedlydoingthetwist Tue 03-Sep-13 13:38:42

AIBU to twist my actual question so that I can ask it as an AIBU? It's a really dull question so I'm trying to spice it up a bit.

WetGrass Tue 03-Sep-13 13:33:56

Aargh - fuck me it's hard to concentrate!

What would it take for MN to buy me out of my current contract, and employ me as troll-baiter in chief?

ParsingFancy Tue 03-Sep-13 12:16:54

YABVVVVVVVVVVVU to start a thread I don't find entertaining even when everyone else does.

You're obviously an attention-seeking bridge-dweller and must be hounded off MN to save the credulous thickoes from themselves.

(I am not procrastinating: I am supposed to be doing nothing. But I'm bored doing nothing, and am procrastinating about it.)

DropYourSword Tue 03-Sep-13 12:15:23

Ooops, a gun even!!

DropYourSword Tue 03-Sep-13 12:14:56

<<On a total aside lurkedtoolong it's much better to be pierced by a qualified piercer in a tattoo shop than someone using a fun in Claire's or similar!>>

AIBU to expect you to agree my MIL is evilest woman in the world for this minor quirk

WetGrass Tue 03-Sep-13 12:06:09

AIBU to give my 6mo diet coke?
(to help her lose weight - because the HV said she was too fat) .

AIBU to think that coca-cola is a suitable drink for my 6 month old baby? I always thought it was evil but when I was getting her ear pierced at my regular tattooist it was the only thing that stopped her crying.

SoleSource Tue 03-Sep-13 11:20:03

AIBU to think that every single person claiming DLA is a liar and a scrounger!
