Oh tell us do of those glorious golden days wink

Butteredparsnips Sat 09-Jul-16 23:04:04

No. I miss the daft, whimsical threads.

Agree!

I miss the rambling funny chatty threads.

Patterkiller Sat 09-Jul-16 23:04:59

Yep. There was always multiple funny threads without light hearted in the title that I got sucked into. Now, rarely. I think people are afraid to post incase of offending.

Butteredparsnips Sat 09-Jul-16 23:05:30

Sorry I meant I agree grin well at least that's daft covered then hmm

Patterkiller Sat 09-Jul-16 23:05:38

Someone's definitely left the gate open at the miserable bastards farm.

They seem to have scattered right across MN.

I was toying with the idea of leaving.

Only toying of course. I am ever hopeful.

And I almost started this very thread earlier.

Weekend nights were always a good laugh.

I still love it but do miss the Halcyon days.

YANBU

I got told off for suggesting hose piping people (OK teenagers) was a bad thing

Noonesfool Sat 09-Jul-16 23:06:50

I agree.

Everyone gets so cross.

usual Sat 09-Jul-16 23:08:09

Actually that was me. Kittens grin

I've become a miserable fucker.

EdithWeston Sat 09-Jul-16 23:08:13

It does go through flat patches.

This is one of them.

I'm hoping it'll perk up.

KittensandKnitting Sat 09-Jul-16 23:08:29

DISCLAIMER: For the avoidance of doubt/ensuring EVERYONE knows my comment about hose piping these teenagers was in response to someone else suggesting it and was hyperthetically said

No teenagers were actually hosepiped -- as far as I know anyway--

LastGirlOnTheLeft Sat 09-Jul-16 23:08:59

I think though life in general has got cross. I have really noticed the past few months that drivers just pull out in front of me even when I am dangerously close to their junction. They can't seem to wait. They have to be first.

ExitPursuedByABear Sat 09-Jul-16 23:09:24

We could start a fave MNetters thread. Where are they now?

KittensandKnitting Sat 09-Jul-16 23:10:01

No it wasn't you OP the person who "told me off" had a hideous long name

And she didn't listen to the fact, that the "perfectly reasonable" teenagers told me to fuck off and die

CamilleClaudel Sat 09-Jul-16 23:10:25

People have been saying this since Mumsnet was hosted on giant mainframes run by steam power and elastic bands, though.

I've just been outside and my bosoms have perked up
