The text speak and lol-ing is hurting my brain.

Why cant they either type properly or get fucking lost?

everlong Fri 18-Jan-13 17:39:36

I don't care anymore.

I'll LOL if the mood takes me.

Not being arsey just saying

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 17:41:05

But are any of you really laughing out loud lol.

Fakebook Fri 18-Jan-13 17:41:14

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 17:41:30

Fuck it. I put a full stop in there.

fourfingerkitkat Fri 18-Jan-13 17:42:18

I need to learn to read properly...thought the OP said " there are lots of huns creeping in"....

Oh, aye...and "fuck right off"....before I forget...

Coconutty Fri 18-Jan-13 17:42:39

Oh Hon, do u need a hug? lol

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 17:43:50

Fakebook. I don't like oxo much. I prefer fresh stock.

everlong Fri 18-Jan-13 17:44:15

Yeah mardy sometimes I am LOLing and that's when I out LOL..

I'm not keen in grin it's cheesier than bloody lol

MikeLitoris Fri 18-Jan-13 17:44:39

No. I'm fucking not laughing. (I'm languishing in the bath feeling sorry for myself)

This place had made me laugh out loud once today. Did I feel the need to LOL on the thread? Did I hell.

The text speak really twists my grip though. How much actual time does it save to type one or two less letters?


MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 17:46:02

Somehow it's better to LOL in capitals. I won't hold it against you everlong.

mynameis Fri 18-Jan-13 17:46:14

TXT SPK wot u onabout it's totes amazing wink

CheCazzo Fri 18-Jan-13 17:46:37

The text speak really twists my grip though. How much actual time does it save to type one or two less letters?

Fucking SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO this. That. Up there. Take note please.

Does my fucking swede in. How much time is saved by typing 'ur' instead of 'your' - I'll tell you shall I? 0.9 of a fucking shaved down nanosecond. That's how long.

usualsuspect Fri 18-Jan-13 17:47:37

I like lolling.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 17:47:43

What are you doing in the bath with an electronic device Mike. Remember what happened to Ken Barlow's first wife.

ThePathanKhansWitch Fri 18-Jan-13 17:49:04

Aww Mardy hun, you make lol! x

scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 17:49:23

lol on mn doesn't bother me
the exaggerated I just peed myself, that's just pure brown nose youse sooo funny
if you leak wee reading mn you need to do pelvic floor muscles

MikeLitoris Fri 18-Jan-13 17:49:31

My mum insists on sending texts with LOL at the end and I cannot resist the urge to shout LOL!! In my head.

I may smash my phone in rage one day.

SirBoobAlot Fri 18-Jan-13 17:49:43

Tha txt spk iz soooooo kool lol lol rofl pmsl... Etc.

Actually text speak hurts my brain.

Lack of paragraphs does similar.

Wonder if we could start an assessment to join MN? If you fail you have to join nethuns go elsewhere.

HoneyDragon Fri 18-Jan-13 17:50:29


usualsuspect Fri 18-Jan-13 17:50:49

I hate all the 'I just spat my tea over the keyboard' bollocks TBH.

Err. no you didn't.


MikeLitoris Fri 18-Jan-13 17:51:00

mardy I'm safe. My phone is in a *ziploc freezer bag LOL!

*top tip courtesy of MN.

everlong Fri 18-Jan-13 17:51:13

I'm in the bath too.. trying to chill and get warm.

I sort of feel as though LOL has come full circle. That it's sort of retro cool.

Or maybe I'm just delusional LOL. Sorry.

WifeofPie Fri 18-Jan-13 17:51:31

Lol at Ken Barlow's first wife. I forgot about that.

ToeCap Fri 18-Jan-13 17:52:11

Bunch of cunts the lot of yer!

WifeofPie Fri 18-Jan-13 17:54:03

I actually do often spit wine tea all over my keyboard. I have a sensitive laugh reflex sad.

Wolfiefan Fri 18-Jan-13 17:54:18

A bunch is actually the correct collective noun for a group of cunts.
It's true!

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 17:54:40

I agree with you scottishmummy and usual. In fact, I once started a mardy thread asking people if they were really spitting and pissing themselves.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 17:55:49

Don't you fucking lol at Ken's wife. <stares>

Tigerbomb Fri 18-Jan-13 17:56:02

Some of the classics make me less lol and more of a laugh like mutley

It's all gone to fuckries with the huns, text speak and lolling

Who made you the fucking thread police!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your getting on my tit's !!!!!!!!!!!! woteva!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tigerbomb Fri 18-Jan-13 17:57:28

MikeLitoris My mom does that - but she thinks it short for lots of love

<<bleaches brain after typing last post>>

usualsuspect Fri 18-Jan-13 17:58:12

There are a lot of !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! around.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 17:58:40

And as for the fucking multiple exclamation marks. Fucking attention seeking if you ask me. wink

WifeofPie Fri 18-Jan-13 17:59:03

If you must know, I also do frequently actually PMSL. I have a faulty piss reflex forgot to do my kegels sad.

RubyGates Fri 18-Jan-13 17:59:25

I haven't seen a good "Fuck off to the far side of fuck, and when you get there, fuck off some more" for aaaaaaaaaages. sad


MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 17:59:30

Is that a ironic grocer's apostrophe Chaz

usualsuspect Fri 18-Jan-13 18:00:07

I usually PMSC (piss myself coughing)

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 18:00:19

Wtf is LAWL?

everlong Fri 18-Jan-13 18:01:27

I do hate loads of !!!!!! though it's like an over excited puppy.

mrsjay Fri 18-Jan-13 18:01:37

I did lol the other day on a post im very very sorry hunnie grin

hopeful92 Fri 18-Jan-13 18:02:21

Dis makes me laff u r all grumpy gits wiv nufink beta 2 do than winge abwt hw uva ppl rite - tbh wot dus it av 2 do wiv u?

I really don't like people writing in text language by the way, not because of the reasons you lot stated, but because it takes me longer to try and work out what on earth is being said!

However, I will LOL 'til the cows come home. So there.

I had to force myself to do it.

It discusts me but I do it - to misquote WS Gilbert

Arf at PMSC.

LAWL is an exaggerated spoken LOL. Innit.

WifeofPie Fri 18-Jan-13 18:03:58

PMSL at "ironic grocer's apostrophe" LOL!!!!!!!!!!!

How about a more general to cover the PMS... situations


(My pelvic floor is knackered)

scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 18:06:12

how about less brown nosing and hyperbole
you didn't just pee yourself/snort tea out nose/spray the keyboard
it wasn't that funny

MikeLitoris Fri 18-Jan-13 18:07:06

It's not one I have ever seenbonbhere but my sil insists on typing jew? instead of do you?

A little part of me dies everytime I see it.

mrsjay Fri 18-Jan-13 18:07:13

I do sometimes snort laughing scottish i really do ( i have no life )

MikeLitoris Fri 18-Jan-13 18:07:38

* seen on here

I can type honestly blush

LaQueen Fri 18-Jan-13 18:08:01

I am doing my level best to ignore all the bleddy 'hon' and the 'lolling' and maintain an air of icy disdain when I observe it happening...

I am only human though, and if it continues then I shall have no choice but to rip off the offending people's heads and piss in their skulls [narrows eyes...cracks knuckles...]

Tweasels Fri 18-Jan-13 18:08:04

I have PMSS (sneezing)
PMSJ (jumping)
PSMTTLCDAAGIWTOATPWTBA (trying to look cool dancing at a gig I was too old and too pelvic weak to be at)

But never PMSL at mumsnet.

Surely grin is the mumsnet version of lol.

wigglesrock Fri 18-Jan-13 18:09:02

I know, I agree, I mean Eddie Redmayne? Seriously.

giraffesCantGoFirstFooting Fri 18-Jan-13 18:09:17


MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 18:09:29

If you're going to enact some bodily function because you laughed, at least make it original. For example:
"I laughed so much at your comments that I let rip a fart with as much force as an Icelandic volcano and fear I now have a brown stain in my pants". (I'm sure you can all can all be much more inventive).

ClippedPhoenix Fri 18-Jan-13 18:09:46

What's with thread police?

I don't mind seeing lol or or a x, so what.

It's the fucking high a mighty attitudes in threads like these the piss me off.

ClippedPhoenix Fri 18-Jan-13 18:10:44

"That" of course just in case the pendants are out

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 18:12:31

I managed three pages before the thread police accusation. grin

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 18:13:01

Good post giraffes.

ClippedPhoenix Fri 18-Jan-13 18:13:56


scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 18:14:05

I think if you say bleddy instead of bloody you can't take any stance on mn syntax
bleddy is that that bloody is too coarse?so use the cutsey wutsey made up alternative
next all the lufflys will turn up going on about vairy nice hams

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 18:14:07

That's the other problem with MN at the moment. You can't have a good friendly rant sometimes.

WifeofPie Fri 18-Jan-13 18:15:19

Clipped I think you meant 'that' and pedants, not pendants <helpful> <friendly>.

I PSMS (pissed myself sneezing) this morning.

Twas like doorstep incontinence except I was on the way to the loo (downstairs) and felt a sneeze coming on halfway down.

Is that TMI?

LaQueen Fri 18-Jan-13 18:15:40

Scottish I am the product of stringent firewalls at work...what can I say (well, nothing too rude obviously).

ClippedPhoenix Fri 18-Jan-13 18:16:23

Don't dish it if you can't take it grin

x posted with Tweasels and loads of others.

That'll teach me to stop MN'ing in order to do some work.

ClippedPhoenix Fri 18-Jan-13 18:17:19

I go one better, I piss and fart when I either cough or laugh.

CheerMum Fri 18-Jan-13 18:17:33

aw, but, come on babez, surely you all want to know how many days my gorjus babe dorter has been around, lolz


can't keep it up

fucking cunts, the lot of ya!

scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 18:18:46

I like mardys idea,go for exaggerated bodily expulsions
like laughed so much I expelled a haemorrhoid
now that would get my attention

BlackBagBorderBinLiner Fri 18-Jan-13 18:19:21

Why can't I find the 'Like' button? How am I going to show the world I LOL, PMSL or cured cancer.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 18:19:46

<pointedly ignoring wiggles remarks about the lovely Eddie>

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 18:23:55

Actually can I add an important point to my OP?

AIBU to think that some posters should lighten up and develop a sense of fun and irony?

Surely it is a shower of cunts.

Tweasels Fri 18-Jan-13 18:29:43

I hate irony

Ah no, I mean ironing lol

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 18:52:34


TheVermiciousKnid Fri 18-Jan-13 19:04:55

Of course standards are fucking slipping - have you seen how icy it is out there!? Hun. Lol. Ugh.


DoodlesNoodles Fri 18-Jan-13 19:05:46
RandallPinkFloyd Fri 18-Jan-13 19:06:56

My friend told me extraneous exclamation marks are the jazz hands of the written word.

I quite like an ironic lol, and I love a well placed soz. Can't imagine anyone over the age of 17 uses them in a non-ironic way.

I rarely actually lol at something written. I normally just blow the air out of my nose with a bit more force.

wigglesrock Fri 18-Jan-13 19:11:01

I apologise - it was below the belt [phnar phnar]

MadBusLady Fri 18-Jan-13 19:13:36

Don't look at me, I even fucking swear in Baby Names.

Why IS it that some people take Baby Names UNBEARABLY personally, by the way?

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 19:13:41

I like jazz hands.
I feel that multiple exclamation marks are more an indicator of someone who would have a "Baby on Board" (or worse "Powered by Fairy Dust") sign in their car.

mrsjay Fri 18-Jan-13 19:14:39

My friend told me extraneous exclamation marks are the jazz hands of the written word.


MadBusLady Fri 18-Jan-13 19:15:53

Didn't we have it out about bleddy and fecking though and they're a bit accent related? "Fecking" is certainly taken to mean exactly the same as fucking IME.

SpicyPear Fri 18-Jan-13 19:17:13

Ur thread ur rules hun. Hugz mardy. Lol.

IamtheZombie Fri 18-Jan-13 19:17:42

Zombie's standards haven't slipped. She spells words out in full and posts in complete sentences.

It's probably better if she doesn't reveal Zombie bodily function mis-functions.

She's also highly annoying in her posting style.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 19:31:22

I like Zombie's posting style (but only for Zombie).

Gruffy Fri 18-Jan-13 19:31:40

"I normally just blow air out my nose with a bit more force"

^^ This.

scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 20:15:59

bamboostalks Fri 18-Jan-13 20:35:45

Can't stand fake swearing. Either say bloody or not at all. Why do people say bleddy? What is the bloody point of that?

Fakebook Fri 18-Jan-13 20:36:30
ThePathanKhansWitch Fri 18-Jan-13 20:38:03

Mwah, mwah thanks hun.xgrin

I thought all the lols, huns, were ironic on threads. They're not are they?

Oh the fucking horror.

GetOrf Fri 18-Jan-13 20:38:09

I say lol.

But usually in context of 'lol at usual' or something.

Not like 'I went down to the shops and I nearly bought 2 packs of tampax instead of one lol' or somewhere else patently not funny.

I loathe the insane !!!!!!!!!!

And the 'fuck off to the far side of fuck' nonsense.

Yamyoid Fri 18-Jan-13 20:41:07

ruby I was very entertained to read the exact "fuck the fuck off......" Insult on the crazy mil thread only yesterday.

Yamyoid Fri 18-Jan-13 20:43:33

Still I didn't lol thought. In fact, that's the first time I've written it.

BarredfromhavingStella Fri 18-Jan-13 20:44:05

Fuck right off you twatting cunt, I have never handed out a fucking hug in this fucking gin joint or nor do I ever fucking intend to.

scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 20:47:50

I dont do hugs
don do awww sweetheart
don't cutsey curse

Yamyoid Fri 18-Jan-13 20:49:57

Not bleddy thought, though. For feck's sake.

Shaky Fri 18-Jan-13 21:03:23

Ah, fuck off the lot of ya mizerbl cahs!!!!!!!

I just PMSWU (I just pissed myself washing up)

I laughed so hard a Pom bear just squirted out of my nose onto my keyboard.

Shaky Fri 18-Jan-13 21:30:41

I just killed the thread. Soz blush

SilentSplendidSun Fri 18-Jan-13 21:36:41

I'll give the kiss of life, Shaky- There you go...

Well, what did you expect? MN is a hotbed of wit and talent and fun, not really, its a cesspit. It was eventually bound to attract OTHERS. Y'know, from over there... With their huns. And hugs.

usualsuspect Fri 18-Jan-13 21:40:29

I say bleddy a lot in RL, it's a midlands thing.

So fuck off with your bleddy dissing.


wannabeamillionaire Fri 18-Jan-13 21:42:11

And then u have the long term who think they can say what they like and not offend....... News for u oldies u do fecking offend .

bleddy online is cutsey wutsey

...Boots parenting club on FB. I have to admit I am stunned at how fucking stupid the posts are.

Boots will ask, for example: 'what's your favourite part of being a parent?' And a typical response will be 'I luv mi lil bubz he's my wurld n my hubz. Luv ya bth babes xxxxxxoooooo'

Drives me up the fucking wall yet strangely compelling.

Having a ham sandwich lol

Had a root canal and double molar extraction lol

RIP Auntie Bertha luvs ya 4eva Lol

I had somebody on Facebook who posted lots and lots of the above types of status. She's lovely in real life, but I hid her. LOL, spray, snort. ect

discorabbit Fri 18-Jan-13 22:11:41

i find it depressing that the longest threads on here are threads that moan about how mn has gone to the dogs or moaning about grammar etc

no one seems to have conversations much on here to the extent that we did once

<Sidles off to laugh at the Boots Parenting Club thickos Huns>

scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 22:12:45

here's the thing,bleddy may well be midland pronunciation
may I remind you mn is online,no such pronunciation issues

scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 22:14:41

disco,are yiu being ironic yours is vouch mn gorn dawgs

I blame AIBU. People start potentially interesting conversations, then you'll have some snipey sniper come on and unecessarily bitchplop all over the show. Changes the whole tone then.

MadBusLady Fri 18-Jan-13 22:14:46

I loathe the insane !!!!!!!!!!

That is begging to be read out of context.

GunsAndRoses Fri 18-Jan-13 22:15:32

Innit tho hun. I hear ya babes. mwah, mwah xx LOL

Now fecking, fooking fuck off ya miserable bunch of fockers. Hell yeah fuck the fuck off ! Luvin that sayin. It is sooooo totes amaze babes. Laters babes mwah fucking mwah. xoxox

scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 22:16:07

you're right how very dare people discuss aibu to extent op isn't agreed with

usualsuspect Fri 18-Jan-13 22:16:44

I can bleddy well say what I like on MN.

Bleddy is a word used by midlanders. you know, a bit like Scottish words are used by the Scots.

It's not a pronunciation of bloody it's a completely different word. smile

discorabbit Fri 18-Jan-13 22:18:05

well sm that's what i am saying

no one has conversations on here anymore yet

people spend all their time moaning about mn

MadBusLady Fri 18-Jan-13 22:19:44

Totes amazeballs GnR. To be fair I think even the yoof say that ironically. Don't they?

scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 22:19:51

say what you expect comment
do you think every bleddy is uttered by a midlander?
what about the cutsey swearie word posters are they hardy midlanders

Nah I just mean somebody may post in Chat or somewhere, something fairly innocuous and it can turn on a sixpence.

That's not to say I don't have a good read of it, I'll not lie. Though thinking about it, it's similar everywhere, I have the occasional look on Digital Spy and there's some splendid arguments and grouches on there.

It's like a grumpy disease I tell you, spreading across the internet.

usualsuspect Fri 18-Jan-13 22:22:38

I'm hardly a bleddy cutesy poster.

Disco, do I know you?

GunsAndRoses Fri 18-Jan-13 22:24:01

Wassup with the bleddy bloody blether?

scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 22:26:20

let me Decide if you bleddy cutsey
do you say bleddy when you see a naice ham or discarded shopping list
can you gratuitously say bleddy referrin to how others serve or how you spend

discorabbit Fri 18-Jan-13 22:29:46

i don't understand wtf you are on about scottish

You will be shock at the ignorance and racism.

usualsuspect Fri 18-Jan-13 22:47:05

We sure do, SM.

I can't stand all this u and ur. There are two posters right now coincidentally both with Italian-sounding names that do this. I can barely read their posts. Ugh.

Not a fan either of hun, hon, hunz, hunney or any of the zillion variants.

Much prefer cunt, atrocious cunt, wankbadger, anything with the word fuck in it, and of course viper.

Dont really mind gavels, klaxons, tea on keyboards or wee in knickers.

scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 23:05:14

the gavel,makes me laugh the faux gravitas given to it.woo hoo gravitas it's proper legal
peed myself, shat dinner,snorted tea over keyboard. brown nose rubbish

Isn't gravitas inherently faux anyway?

Noooooooo shaky don't worry, I'm the thread killer. Really.

MN is better than chips.

LineRunner Sat 19-Jan-13 00:11:51

Chaz just demonstrated a property known as anti-gravitas.

Is gravitas gravy that takes itself very seriously?

Don't know about standards slipping but two TWO threads I was reading have gone poof in the last hour sad

Ok they were a bit fighty but also such fun!grin

usualsuspect Sat 19-Jan-13 00:27:21

What? I never saw any fighty threads.

The hours I put in as well.

LetsFaceTheMusicAndDance Sat 19-Jan-13 00:28:46

They was luffly ....sigh

I must learn to swap from separate pages to 1 long page if a thread looks 'interesting'.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Sat 19-Jan-13 00:47:58

"no one has conversations on here anymore yet

people spend all their time moaning about mn".

Waiting for you to start some interesting conversations then discorabbit

IamtheZombie Sat 19-Jan-13 01:06:32

But, if we have conversations, we're accused of being cliquey.

theodorakisses Sat 19-Jan-13 06:16:17

Mainly it is full of posters trying to ban people from owning certain cars, eating crisps and pe lessons. if you have idiotic posters you get idiotic language. Where have all the normal bastards gone?

LaQueen Sat 19-Jan-13 08:56:53

"here's the thing,bleddy may well be midland pronunciation
may I remind you mn is online,no such pronunciation issues

In what parallel universe have I entered that I'm actually taking flack from scottish (of all people) for using regional idioms and not always using the Queen's English hmm

LaCiccolina Sat 19-Jan-13 09:11:01

I've sworn once and meant it. Was colloquial and I could have just used the word stupid but didn't really apply the depth of stupidity required on that instance. Someone (or more who knows or cares) reported it. I get a note off hq. I've seen c word used like water on here! My word was no where in that league.

Rules apply where it suits seems to me. Or if ur a favourite. The op post was particularly irritating. Do people switch brains off before asking a question? Have to wonder sometimes.....

i sometimes lol, because i do laugh out loud when reading something.

i hate text speak. just why?

i dont generally swear in real life so i dont generally do it here, but will write blooming (and thats cause i do say that in rl). ill only swear if there is a topic that makes me angry, or people are being so unbelievably stupid!

however... thats my way and i dont give a fuck what any of you think about it grin

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Sat 19-Jan-13 09:49:40

Ah but but I don't think anyone's ever accused scottishmummy of being twee LaQ.

theodorakisses Sat 19-Jan-13 09:53:00

I liked her, she was fun.
And posted in a bullet point style.
Not sure why.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Sat 19-Jan-13 10:04:36

Why past tense, theodora?

theodorakisses Sat 19-Jan-13 10:16:20

I haven't encountered her for a while.

FellatioNels0n Sat 19-Jan-13 10:18:53

If you do an advanced search for lol from 10/1/13 to date it returns a really scary number of posts.

Do you know what I am really, really tired of? I'm tired of all the cunting. Have we not all cunted enough now? It is rarely used in a way that has any real gravitas on here. It seems to be used mainly in the same manner in which a 10 year old boy might run into a room, fart near his sister's face and run out again. The only person who finds it hysterically entertaining is him.

scottishmummy Sat 19-Jan-13 10:24:02

if you must c&p that you're getting flak lequeen,quote right quote
i was not addressing you in the quote you cited

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Sat 19-Jan-13 10:33:07

Actually, there are way fewer "huns" if you do the same search for them Fellatio , and a lot of them are ironic, in this thread, or just one or two posters. Maybe I'm being über sensitive to hunning.

mrsjay Sat 19-Jan-13 10:35:08

mardy maybe you had accidently signed into another forum and had all the huns thrown at you grin

JustAHolyFool Sat 19-Jan-13 10:39:35

Scottish vs LaQueen.

It's the fight I've always dreamed of, and I'm not sure LaQueen will come out with her (whitened, straightened) teeth intact.

Ding ding.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Sat 19-Jan-13 10:42:55

mrsjay. I'm still resentful that I found the other forum first, found it totally bland, and it put me off parenting websites for years. I probably missed out on a good five years of MNing because of fucking NMs. I could have been a legend...I could have been there for some of the classics...I could have been a contender...hell, I could have been a moldie...

<inserts wink to indicate I am joking for those who are taking things rather literally>

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Sat 19-Jan-13 10:45:15

Who's taking bets JustA?

mrsjay Sat 19-Jan-13 10:47:17

I wasted to much time on Nms although i never ever EVER hunned grin

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Sat 19-Jan-13 10:50:03

I didn't even waste time there mrsjay. I just nosed around a couple of times and decided it was full of people like one of my SILs and never gave it a second thought until I found MN.

I had NM'd for a long long time. I then realised my eyesight was being destroyed by the glittery signatures and the overbearing amount of shit and text speak which made whole threads unintelligible to me was ripping my heart out and I spent most of the time facepalming at the stupidity of the whole site. I do feel I missed out on MN for a long time.

mrsjay Sat 19-Jan-13 10:55:38

here is much more varied in conversation and laughs I felt a bit lost on Nms because my DDs are older and I had done all my baby and toddler years way before the internet, so chat was a bit limited,

LaQueen Sat 19-Jan-13 14:48:56

scottish you appear unable to apply the space bar after typing a comma, a knee jerk aversion to capital letters and a confusing lack of prepositions...

It's what make your posts you smile

Just like using bleddy and an annoying sense of my own grandoise make my posts mine smile

scottishmummy Sat 19-Jan-13 14:57:39

indeed, a cracking summation
and I wouldn't have it another other way.the joy of mn is the differences
the sheer you think what,guessing about someone else based on words on a screen

LaQueen Sat 19-Jan-13 14:59:56

[high fives scottish ]

Indded we are all beautiful in our myriad guises smile

greenhill Sat 19-Jan-13 15:18:28

Aaawww SM and LaQ are high-fiving

<group hug anyone?>

FellatioNels0n Sat 19-Jan-13 15:26:22

LaQ @ 14:48 hahahaha touche my darling! wink

LineRunner Sat 19-Jan-13 17:27:45

we are beautiful
no matter what they say
words won't bring us down
altogether now

ThePathanKhansWitch Sun 20-Jan-13 01:58:58

It,s turned into a love in.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Sun 20-Jan-13 18:31:29

Shocking isn't it. They'll be hunning next.

mardy I shall NEVER hun. Rest assured.

FellatioNels0n Mon 21-Jan-13 05:18:51

I agree TSH. Anyone who puts ten squillion photos of themselves on fb categorically DOES NOT think they are ugly, however much they might whine about having body dysmorphia and no self confidence. Bollocks to that, I say.

ZOMG- Zombies, OH MAI GOD!

Or a sarcastic OMG.
