None of you will have a clue who I am as I've just NC'd anyway.

I am bored of this place, BORED I TELL YOU, plus it's so difficult to MN during summer hols.

<tedious sigh>

How does an elephant get down from a tree? He sits on a leaf and waits until Autumn.

Which is when I'll be back, probably.

<dramatic exit>

I give you 2 days! grin

Gruntfuttocks Fri 02-Aug-13 15:41:09

Naff orf dear!

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 15:41:54

You underestimate me, I'm sure by the time I'm back Olivia will be as big as a house.

WandaDoff Fri 02-Aug-13 15:42:24

Off you pop then smile

I give you a week.

IceNoSlice Fri 02-Aug-13 15:42:26

YABU for not posting in flouncer's corner. And writing a boring post. IABU for replying.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 15:42:47

How lovely, Gruntfuttocks, are you usually so cheery?

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 15:43:22

This is not AIBU, don't you YABU me!

<shakes fist>

Groovee Fri 02-Aug-13 15:44:11

Actually it is AIBU. Soooo YABU. Cheerio

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 15:45:18

Damn-it - I thought I was in _Chat.

I really AM being unreasonable.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 15:50:40

Really, the most interesting thread I've been on recently is one debating the correct pronunciation of 'Diplodocus'.


I am feeling particularly grumpy today about having to re-load my wireless printer software.

'Printer not found'


Cheer up moody, grin

5318008 Fri 02-Aug-13 15:52:25

Pah ha ha <points and laughs>

Bless ya, enjoy holibobs and come back refreshed

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Fri 02-Aug-13 15:53:11


Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 15:54:38

I've often wondered 5318008 why you've only got one 5 - was there already a 55318008 ?

Hassled Fri 02-Aug-13 15:55:04

grin at the AIBU. And there's always something vaguely interesting here - it's just that sometimes you have to look a bit harder for it.

Re the printer - I take it you've tried turning it off and on again? <runs>

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Fri 02-Aug-13 15:55:18

She's boobies surely

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 15:56:01

Or are you boobies perhaps - I've always thought it was boobless - that would explain it.

See how bored I am?

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 15:57:49

Hassled I tried EVERYTHING short of putting a hammer through it.

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Fri 02-Aug-13 15:58:47

Op am I allowed to gues who you are or is this a prpper, serious name change

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 15:59:27

No I'm not Hecate although I do always agree with Hecate, who doesn't?

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:00:14

Guessing is allowed.

Oh have a cup of tea and then get back on here. I'm bored too - that's why I'm on here. It's so claggy and hot outside, but it looks as if the heavens are just about to open, so I need MN to stop me doing something sensible, like cooking or ironing. And all of my current books are crap.

DiaryOfAWimpyMum Fri 02-Aug-13 16:04:36
everlong Fri 02-Aug-13 16:06:37

I hear you OP.

This place is like a bad habit you can't kick sometimes.

A break is probably a good thing, I need one myself.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:08:24

Oh that's nice WimpyMum, thank you. smile

Remus we had a fabulous thunder storm this morning, the most enormous lightening crack I've ever heard - I thought it had struck next door's house because it set of the alarm. COOL.

They are okay, I checked.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:12:21


Great, now I can't even spell.

LeGavrOrf Fri 02-Aug-13 16:12:26

Who ARE you?


DiaryOfAWimpyMum Fri 02-Aug-13 16:12:51

I'm very very very bored too, my books all look rubbish (not brightly covered) my DC are away, I almost had a panic attack as my laptop charger just had to rush out and buy a new one, now I'm also broke, so broke and bored.

Oh and it's hot outside again...

Just drink tea then come back, or lurk, I lurk too much

Diary - shall we swap books?

OP - I think I know who you are.

Neh it's not Reality.

See you in 3 days the autumn my dear.

Pagwatch Fri 02-Aug-13 16:14:56

Have you tried putting a hammer through it.

Is it you who keeps breaking the damn site and making it go offline too?

everlong Fri 02-Aug-13 16:17:19

Oh come on then ABF spill the beans.

I think I know who it is. She always ignores me on other threads too wink

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:17:40

lightening crack sounds like bleaching of hair


No, not Reality.

I had a new book delivered today "500 Toys" by Nguyen Le

That should keep me out of mischief.

Pags, I am tempted by the hammer idea.

5318008 Fri 02-Aug-13 16:18:11

Boobies. I am 1980s casio scientific calculator, doncha know nuffink! grin

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:18:46

I do not ignore you everlong (do I ? sorry)

Crochet? Nope, you can't possibly be who I thought you were then.

DiaryOfAWimpyMum Fri 02-Aug-13 16:21:06

Yes to book swap

I never know who anyone is anymore,the site is too big for me - or I may be getting old...

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:21:25


there was a story with it wasn't there? or there was at my school, woman went to the doctor he said so many pills for so many days, so you would tap out the numbers on the calculator etc, and she ended up BOOBLESS, - I guess she ended up with BOOBIES in your story!


5318008 Fri 02-Aug-13 16:23:29

Oooh v good story, like it

Diary - Okay, my first offer is, 'Dune' by Frank Herbert. I am sooooooooooooo bored of it.

shock BOOBIES! I always thought it meant to say boobless but you'd either missed a 5 off the end and everyone was too polite to tell you or the name was already taken by someone who last used it in 2005!

Everlong, I have no idea who she is sorry!

everlong Fri 02-Aug-13 16:27:25

Sorry OP. probably guessing totally wrong grin

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:32:47

Exactly ABF, I have been too polite about the BOOBLESS, we are right, BOOBIES is wrong.

Bowlersarm Fri 02-Aug-13 16:37:21

Can I just ask OP as you've reached the end of your MNing days (for now wink)

Does the typical MNer do this >

1) find interesting MN site, somehow
2) lurk a bit
3) lurk a lot
4) tentatively join
5) tentatively post
6) tentatively post a bit more
7) start posting a lot
8) post on the hour every hour, if not more?

....I am on (8), and DH is becoming more and more hmmconfused, and I am starting to pretend I'm not MNing, at all, oh no.

I need to be at you stage of

9) flounce (much better than leaving quietly)

If my marriage is to remain intact.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:37:31

I should say Remus that I am not a seasoned crocheter, - I made a bumble bee when I was about 14, that was the last creation.

I just wanted to make something, erm, unique for my niece's baby shower next month.

It will most definitely be unique.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:38:59

Yes, Bowlersarm, that's about the size of it.

Mr Quetzalcoatlus does not approve of my MNing either.

Tough Shit, I say.

I knitted a hippo when I was about 14. It was a large, green, lumpy disaster. My sister's bitch smile was small, white and perfect. The day I think about crocheting is the day you drag me to the wall and shoot me please.

SuperiorCat Fri 02-Aug-13 16:43:37

Can't be chaos phone as they are single posts not multiples

MunchkinsMumof2 Fri 02-Aug-13 16:46:45

.....and the posts make sense wink

Oblomov Fri 02-Aug-13 16:48:10

Still none-the-wiser as to whom is actually flouncing.
Give us a clue .... grin

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:51:33

You see, I'm not that exciting and if I do we do guessing games and everyone gives up then I'll have to say, it's me ******!

and you be all like..




One simple capitalised name, two syllables.

Caster8 Fri 02-Aug-13 16:52:32

Why are you afraid to do this with your real name?

LRDYaDumayuIThink Fri 02-Aug-13 16:52:55

I've no idea who you are but you sound nice. Have a good break and come back refreshed.

comingintomyown Fri 02-Aug-13 16:53:32

I thought after spending around 7 hours on here last Sunday it might be an idea to wean myself off . But why ?

No idea who you are OP but your new name makes my eyes hurt grin

Nope, I was wrong.

I'm shite at guessing.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:55:23

I am not AFRAID Caster8 , I already NC'd very recently, so haven't been this one very long, hence not yet notorious.

not that I ever was.

Caster8 Fri 02-Aug-13 16:56:23

There are only 3 or 4 posters who write a subject heading in capitals, imo.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:56:42

No idea who you are OP but your new name makes my eyes hurt

It's a word only my 8 year old knows how to pronounce. grin

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:58:20

There are only 3 or 4 posters who write a subject heading in capitals, imo

Ooh, really?


Who ae the three or four posters?

Caster8 Fri 02-Aug-13 17:02:42

1. Hully. Lots of times
2. Chaos. Sometimes
3. Struggling now. Pagwatch?
4. Talc?

usualsuspect Fri 02-Aug-13 17:03:23

You will be back, although I agree MN is boring as fuck just lately.

I dunno who you are, but it's much more fun to flounce off with the arse in your real name.

Although slightly harder to slink back.

LeGavrOrf Fri 02-Aug-13 17:05:07

It is dull isn't it. I wonder why. There also seem to be a lot of threads about primary school reading levels etc.

Why the FUCK does anyone care? It's bloody August. Just leave it AHT.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 17:05:37

At least I won't be wearing sidebollocks of shame when I return. grin

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 17:07:12

You must all promise to still be here and post lots when I come back in September.

usualsuspect Fri 02-Aug-13 17:12:13

I do need to know who you are, this is the most exciting thread I've been on for a while.

sparkle12mar08 Fri 02-Aug-13 17:15:43

Don't let the door hit your arse on the way out! grin

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 17:18:39

You leave my arse out of this.

My lovely children have already insulted my arse today, they were scanning it in Tescos with one of those self-scan infrared guns and told me 'hey Mum, your bottom is five hundred pounds'


Bowlersarm Fri 02-Aug-13 17:20:30

Blimey OP haven't you gone yet?

Wow. Mine would probably be about 12p.

ReindeerBollocks Fri 02-Aug-13 17:23:44

Boobies on a calculator is 5138008

Boobless is 55378008

This is clearly an indication that i really wasnt interested in schoolwork grin

My OP guess is SP in one of her guises

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 17:24:12

Fuck off Bowlersarm, I'm actually interested in my own thread, I don't care if anyone else is bored,

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 17:25:53

Oops, I forgot the grin

IceNoSlice Fri 02-Aug-13 17:28:59

Ooh can I guess? Are you Sarah Stratton? Always wondered what happened to her.

YABU for name changing and not posting in flouncer's corner.
If you're leaving we need to know who you are !

But for finding things boring ? Not so much.

It's these dog days of summer, they have a naturally tedious aspect - even if it is pleasant to sit outside in the park cafe with your cappucino and vaguely feel you could be in Italy (especially as our cafe is run by an Italian family - old chap who collects the cups and greets everyone is especially lovely smile)

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 17:34:13

No, but I'm sure SarahStratton has been back recently with something I can't remember tagged on the end of her name.

RustyBear Fri 02-Aug-13 17:34:30

The MN is boring theory is probably proved by the fact that a thread I started is a Discussion of the Day. (First time in 7 years!)

The RustyBear is boring theory is probably proved by the fact that this has made me unreasonably happy......

Bowlersarm Fri 02-Aug-13 17:34:56


EllesAngel Fri 02-Aug-13 17:45:14

The OP has name changed so that when she slinks back in in two hours no one will realise wink

It's sarahstrattonisbackforabit. Clearly op you don't mn that much.

libertine73 Fri 02-Aug-13 17:47:58

as my old mam says, you're only bored if you're boring! start a few threads? fuck the dc! smile

I am missing you already, Quetzalcoatlus. I am Pining.

usualsuspect Fri 02-Aug-13 17:50:44

Ooh is that a clue?

libertine73 Fri 02-Aug-13 17:54:11

it's it quints ?????

Ooh, which one Rusty ?
(too lazy to check through)

And congratulations flowers

Should I know who you are Quetz? You do seem familiar.

RustyBear Fri 02-Aug-13 18:04:51

Who will be Who? Which I think is a much better name for it than "Doctor 'reveal'" which is what MNHQ called it!

I'm guessing that it's Maryz....fits the given clues.

No not Maryz. sad

If we guess the name right will you tell us Mary

- like in Rumpenstintskill (or however you say his name) ?

usualsuspect Fri 02-Aug-13 18:14:02

I don't think it's Maryz.

RustyBear Fri 02-Aug-13 18:14:40

Didn't Rumpelstiltskin stamp on the floor in a rage and vanish when his name was guessed?

usualsuspect Fri 02-Aug-13 18:15:04

Maryz doesn't have an 8 year old.

Ha !

Ironically I got that name quite wrong didn't I ?

Wrong enough that in real life confused I'd still be there spinning straw into gold grin

Caster8 Fri 02-Aug-13 18:24:25


Caster8 Fri 02-Aug-13 18:25:00

She did give us a clue

When she said capitalised name I was thinking all capitals - and could only think of ICBINEG - but that's more than 2 syllables. And it probably just starts with a capital doesn't it ?

TheHuffAndPuffALot Fri 02-Aug-13 19:30:30

I think its Hully.

Or SarahStratton.

Stratters hasn't got an 8 year old.

I don't feel like it's Hully

Can't explain why though - just a feeling.

2 syllables she said I think ?

everlong Fri 02-Aug-13 20:09:28

Has hully an 8 year old?
My brain has died. Cannot think.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 20:38:01

Two syllables, Capitalised First Letter, one simple name, canine.

And Maryz? REALLY?

And I love SDTG, but I'm not sure about the clue, are you saying I'm Pinot? - I'm not but I do like and drink, or three.

I've got a 6 year old also.

I'm all about the boys.

MunchkinsMumof2 Fri 02-Aug-13 21:03:19

Dogs ?

MunchkinsMumof2 Fri 02-Aug-13 21:03:53


gruffalobore Fri 02-Aug-13 21:15:57

There was a girl of 13, her boobs were size 84 but she wanted them to be size 45. She went to the Doctor and the Doctor said 0 (oh). Take these tablets 2 times (x) a day but she took them 4 times a day and ended up:
13844502 x 4 = 55378008!

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Fri 02-Aug-13 21:20:57


HA! You wish.

You're NEVER getting rid of ME! grin

Nope not me

LRDYaDumayuIThink Fri 02-Aug-13 21:37:53

Oh, no, this isn't HelenMN (who I know is going, which is very sad)?

ScrambledSmegs Fri 02-Aug-13 22:00:22


ScrambledSmegs Fri 02-Aug-13 22:02:48

Holy fuck the biggest spider ever is crawling across my living room floor.

I think it wants to eat me.

You're not Pointy are you? I miss Pointy.

ScrambledSmegs Fri 02-Aug-13 22:08:59

Oops. Wrong thread. Sorry.

TiggyD Fri 02-Aug-13 22:29:59

Oh no! An annoymous person I don't know is telling me they're leaving in an annoying way!

Oh boo hoo!


greenhill Fri 02-Aug-13 22:39:54

Is that you Fenton? <slow on the uptake>

usualsuspect Fri 02-Aug-13 23:42:37


Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 23:49:19

<flounces off happily>

I really am flouncing you know.


usualsuspect Fri 02-Aug-13 23:51:06

I think I might come with you, for a while.

<skips off with Fenton>

Bye bye. Whoever you are.....

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 23:54:42

Happy to have you along, usual.

ClartyCarol Fri 02-Aug-13 23:58:15

Didn't you flounce not too long ago, then come back?


everlong Fri 02-Aug-13 23:59:16

Oh Fenton.

I like you. Come back soon!

Oi usual don't you dare flounce, you made me promise not to vanish again, so you can't vanish now!

greenhill Sat 03-Aug-13 00:03:43

Don't flounce just because you are bored. There are loads of better reasons than that grin

usualsuspect Sat 03-Aug-13 00:04:24

I will be back,murder.

I need a break break from the bollocks on here.

Sorry, Fenton.

Carry on Flouncing grin

usualsuspect Sat 03-Aug-13 00:05:06

Only the one break. grin


Nah, don't blame you, wears you down doesn't it?

everlong Sat 03-Aug-13 00:09:45

Hey I like you too usual wink come back soon.

coughingbeanintheoven Sat 03-Aug-13 05:54:09

Fenton and usual plase come back soon I am rather fond of you both shock

Oh no ! A double whammy !
Tragic sad

Have a nice summer, and be back soon flowers

libertine73 Sat 03-Aug-13 08:17:07

oh it's Fenton sad come back soon Fenton, you too usual the balance is tipping in the batshit favour!

Fenton? Have never heard of Fenton. Sorry, Fenton.

MardyBra Sat 03-Aug-13 11:46:39
MardyBra Sat 03-Aug-13 11:46:57

It was very dull though.

scottishmummy Sat 03-Aug-13 11:58:09

Seei think if you're gonnae flounce don't nc
How else will you get the nooooo stay we loves you
And the inflated ego of the we luffa you shoutout

Pagwatch Sat 03-Aug-13 12:05:49

Jesus Christ Fenton. Don't flounce love.
The wankers are everywhere...

SoupDragon Sat 03-Aug-13 12:09:17

None of you will have a clue who I am as I've just NC'd anyway.

So what is the bloody point? Attention seeker.


As an aside, I was in Richmond Park last night. Lots of your close friends there, staring at me. They soon ran when I called out your name though.

Quetzalcoatlus Sat 03-Aug-13 13:02:39

I was just waving a cheery ta-tra for now, but call me attention seeking if you will you fucker SoupDragon .

It really is a very lighthearted-I'm-off-for-the-summer-type-thing, I am not mortally wounded or anything.

And it is a bit dull at the moment.

And I really do have to interact with the children and spring clean the house and help my old folk move house and work as well.

So have a good summer, meet you back here in September. wink

Yay You're back!

MardyBra Sat 03-Aug-13 13:47:44

That didn't last long, did it? wink

ShowOfHands Sat 03-Aug-13 14:05:22

Fenton, usual, room for an old one? I am giving up MN for summer. Today is my last day. Only I wasn't going to mention it.

Is Helen really going too? I might not come back if so. She's my favourite.

everlong Sat 03-Aug-13 14:25:59

Helen's going?
<throws self on floor>

filee777 Sat 03-Aug-13 14:28:50

How anyone can classify this forum as boring after the poo crumbs thread is quite beyond me!

Thumbwitch Sat 03-Aug-13 14:58:32

Helen is going, yes. She tole me so in a PM <swanks>

Fenton - come back soon and bring Usual and Showy with you (if they actually go, which I doubt they'll manage wink)

everlong Sat 03-Aug-13 15:06:13

Get you thumb.
Ah that's bad. I love Helen.

Groovee Sat 03-Aug-13 15:20:26

The OP is still here! So much for flouncing! grin

MardyBra Sat 03-Aug-13 15:37:33

I couldn't flounce over the summer. I love Bridezilla threads too much.

Oblomov Sat 03-Aug-13 18:35:44

I too have found MN to be fuck boring recently. I refresh threads and think, is that it? I can't even find any threads I want to post on.
What the heck is going on?

Caster8 Sat 03-Aug-13 18:42:40

I agree Oblomov. What happens with me though, is just as I am about to ignore MN for 3 days, a thread that I am interested in, keeps me ticking over.

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Sat 03-Aug-13 18:46:13

Why is Helen going?

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Sat 03-Aug-13 18:46:45

Was it me? Have I just been too naughty?

turningvioletviolet Sat 03-Aug-13 18:55:15

I 'left' sometime last year after many along year of being here daily (lurking mostly). Unfortunately only managed to replace one internet addiction with another which was not really the point.

Due to circumstances <mysterious> other stuff has come / is coming to an end and i have found myself drawn back here. Will not allow myself to succumb as before though <strong willed>, oh no, definitely not.

FunLovinBunster Sat 03-Aug-13 19:03:12

At least you will be missed Fenton!
Now, if I flounced, no one would give a shiny shit...
