Could you summarise please tidy. X

MummyBeerest Fri 16-Aug-13 07:01:10

All previous threads were on my watch list. But the 4th?
I'm so in.

Is the wedding this weekend? ?

Part 4?!
I was only on part 2...

Pinebarrens Fri 16-Aug-13 07:09:26

a summary would be great!

I missed no3. Summary?

SpecialAgentCuntSnake Fri 16-Aug-13 07:22:22

Marking place.

HMG83 Fri 16-Aug-13 07:33:10

Shameless placemark. Looking forward to your update tonight! What could hunfriend possible have to say?

AaDB Fri 16-Aug-13 07:34:32

No 3 disappeared from my I'm on list. I'd love a catch up or link please.

AaDB Fri 16-Aug-13 07:44:43

Found thread 3. Tidy is going for a drink with hunfriend tonight. so called because gluezilla asked 'what's up, hun?' to a remark made by uninvited guest; one of the 20/100 save the daters but stay at home peeps.

sweetestcup Fri 16-Aug-13 07:44:44

Id like a summary Tidy, I missed 2 and 3, although I read all of 1!

SlightlyItchyBraStrap Fri 16-Aug-13 07:45:05

Part FOUR? Surely this must be a mumsnet record.

Thumbwitch Fri 16-Aug-13 07:47:45

Not just marking my place, OH no, not me. As if. <settles down>

thistlelicker Fri 16-Aug-13 07:48:08

Yes!!!!!!!!!!! waves-

thistlelicker Fri 16-Aug-13 07:48:44

I've missed the end of the last thread!! How rude of me!

gintastic Fri 16-Aug-13 07:55:38

Waiting with bated breath...

Groovee Fri 16-Aug-13 07:59:21

Where's part 3?

SkinnybitchWannabe Fri 16-Aug-13 07:59:55

A summary would be great please.

prettybird Fri 16-Aug-13 08:04:15

Gluesister also emailed Tidydancer and asked what was up, saying Gluezilla was upset hmm. Tidydancer replied with input from MN explaining the sequence of events (ie that she'd been asked to decorate the hall for the wedding she had effectively been uninvited to and had said no but that GZ didn't seem to want to accept that).

Gluesister replied saying "Sorry you feel that way".

Now awaiting result of TD meeting another of the "uninvited", who was "hunned" by GZ on Facebook after a sarcastic comment which appears to be linked to the wedding.

Summary

Bride sent out save the date cards to 100 people including Tidy

More recently, bride sent out 80 invitations. This is bad form but Tidy sucked it up.

Bride emailed Tidy to ask for her help in decorating her venue to her 50s/60s Hollywood theme. This is explicitly because Tidy has skills in this area, is local, and is not invited. Bride does not want to spoil the surprise for the invited guests.

Tidy declined.

Bride asked her to reconsider.

Tidy declined.

Bride's sister doesn't know Tidy but contacted her to say that bride is very upset, so will she please reconsider.

Tidy explained that she wishes bride well, but given circumstances including work, childcare and not being invited she still declines to help.

Sister acknowledges receipt fairly non-committally.

Friend Vaguebooks. Bride replies "what's up hun" and gets "..." in response. This friend is one of the 20 uninvitees.

Tidy and friend are meeting today (Friday 16th).

Additional notes:

* because of suggested response "Are you on glue?" bride is known as Gluezilla and we also refer to GlueSister, GlueGroom, etc.

* Because of a suggested decoration scheme of Sylvanian Family wedding set, we are shoehorning Sylvanian Family references in wherever possible

* Gluezilla is planning one of those "running away from T Rex" photos.

FruOla Fri 16-Aug-13 08:23:17

Tidy, if you're tempted to consume vast amounts of alcohol this evening, please try not to - or at least please try to stay sober enough to remember the conversation with HunFriend grin.

Or just record the conversation so you can play it back to yourself when you're regaling us with the details of whatever it is that Glue has done to HunFriend wink.

KoalaFace Fri 16-Aug-13 08:23:20

Love Horry's summary. Particularly the "additional notes".

I wonder if hunfriend is incandescent? She'll flip her lid when ahe hears about Tidy's Slave the Date issues.

I missed hunfriend's status though. What exactly did she say?

sweetestcup Fri 16-Aug-13 08:27:12

Horry thank you, that sums it up!

DadDadDad Fri 16-Aug-13 09:00:21

And between all the entertaining discussion in the last 3000 posts on this topic, I've lifted out all the actual communications that Tidy has told us:

SENT 21 July 11:30 [all timings approx]
Dear F,
Save The Dates are usually sent to ensure your guests are avaliable to attend your wedding - not to make sure they are free to help on the day (and NOT get invited). I am astounded at your request, and will not be available to provide assistance.
Tidy.

RECEIVED 22 July 19:00
Are you being serious? I thought you'd want to help....!

SENT 22 July 21:30
Hang on, have I got something wrong here? Am I actually invited? Apologies if I have got the wrong end of the stick but I really thought that I wasn't

RECEIVED 24 July 20:00
I'm really sorry, I thought we'd talked about this...
I couldn't invite everyone from the save the date list so I'm sorry you and [DP's name] can't come.
I'd still really appreciate your help with decorations etc. Is there any chance you can do it?
Please?
F

SENT 25 July 18:30
Dear F,

I am sorry if I wasn't clear before. I was hoping that you might realise just how rude you are being, without me having to spell it out to you.

You simply cannot expect to send someone a save the date card, fail to invite them to your wedding, and then request them to arrange childcare and put in time and effort to do you a wedding related favour!! The kind of thing you are asking of me is only really appropriate to ask of a guest (and even then only if it's not putting them at an inconvenience) or a professional decorator/planner.

I understand that this is your wedding, and you have every right to invite whoever you wish to attend. However, I am frankly astonished that you cannot appreciate just how rude you have been, in asking me to help you decorate the venue for a wedding you chose not to invite me to, for the benefit of those who you DO regard well enough to invite!

So just to be clear in order that there is no further ambiguity, I wish you nothing but the best for your wedding and marriage, but I regret I will not be able to help you.

Best wishes,

Tidy

RECEIVED 30 July 21:00
There's obviously been a misunderstanding of some kind. I didn't think this was that big of a deal. Let me know if you change your mind.
F x

RECEIVED 31 July 18:30
from bride's sister, Tidy says it is “asking what happened, as the bride is upset. Not at what she has done, but at the fact that I won't help her. It's not a horrible or unpleasant email, but I am utterly flabbergasted."

SENT 1 Aug 20:00
Dear Sister,

I'm not entirely sure myself why F is upset if I'm honest. All I can do is really explain my position and hopefully it'll make sense to you.

Your sister invited me and [DP's name] to her wedding by way of a Save The Day card, and I made plans accordingly. I've since learned that I'm one of 20 who received the original save the date cards and whom are not invited after all. I've accepted this as I appreciate that every bride has budgetary constraints and family pressures that change over time.

What I didn't expect was then to be asked to decorate her venue, as F had never discussed this with me before less than a fortnight ago and I'm afraid it's just not possible for me to help for a number of reasons. I'm not sure if you're under the impression that I had arranged to help F and then pulled out, but this isn't what happened. I truly had no idea she was going to approach me to do this until I received her email.

Your sister is normally so thoughtful, so I'm surprised she hasn't realised what an imposition it is. It's just too much I'm afraid and I simply can't help on this occasion.

Hope all goes well and look forward to seeing the pictures in due course.

Kind regards
Tidy"

RECEIVED 6 Aug 17:30
Thanks for getting back to me, I'm really sorry to hear you feel like that. As I'm sure you understand it's difficult for me because F is upset. She's still hoping you reconsider as she's stuck but I do understand if you can't.

DadDadDad Fri 16-Aug-13 09:01:51

Is there a support group for sad people like me who have spent too much time on this thread?

Mitzyme Fri 16-Aug-13 09:07:41

Slave the Date. Brilliant !!

grobagsforever Fri 16-Aug-13 09:08:25

Thanks so much to those who have summarised. I'm unlurking and place marking. I'm out for a drink myself tonight so will need thus update to ready for my train journey home please Tidygrin

Nice summaries horry and dad. Have some cake

not place marking at all

Oh additional note:
thanks to Gluezilla's facebook response, Tidy's mutual friend is known as hunfriend

Sayitdontsprayit Fri 16-Aug-13 09:09:45

Oh part 4! grin

Lancelottie Fri 16-Aug-13 09:13:09

Horry, I'm not sure I can keep track of my own life in that much detail -- could you come and summarize what I'm meant to be doing this week, please apart from waiting for updates from Tidy's thread?

LoopThePoop Fri 16-Aug-13 09:15:21

It's like a soap opera! smile

DameFanny Fri 16-Aug-13 09:20:26

Splendid updates thanks

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 16-Aug-13 09:22:13

Thanks horry and daddad

Recapped beautifully

Wonder how the drink will go tonight

Will hun friend be devastated she wasn't invited

Plus assume she is local to tidy - was she also asked to decorate the hall - although we know she is going away to Paris for the weekend

If I was hun friend I would be insulted if I wasn't grin

MinnieBar Fri 16-Aug-13 09:31:19

<delurks>

Actually, seeing Gluezilla's emails all together like that without all the suggestions etc makes her sheer brass neck seem even worse. It's like she only read the words 'I can't help' and ignored the 'this is just SO INCREDIBLY RUDE of you' aspects of the emails.

Respect to you though Tidy. And thank you for some amazing threads of late… grin

Blatherskite Fri 16-Aug-13 09:32:03

I've followed this from the beginning. I can't quit now!

grin

Lancelottie

At a guess:

* keep children alive
* clean kitchen
* start thinking about That Cupboard you've been ignoring

DidoTheDodo Fri 16-Aug-13 09:36:13

I'm in! (Hurrah, I was wondering what to do with my weekend....sorted!)

Manchesterhistorygirl Fri 16-Aug-13 09:37:22

Brilliant summaries there. I'm going away to possibly no wifi next week, can someone please PM with updates! grin

Pinebarrens Fri 16-Aug-13 09:37:40

thanks horry and dad brilliant summary.

Look forward to todays update.

Tidy brilliant measured responses.

lunar1 Fri 16-Aug-13 09:38:46

In my house keeping children alive and opening that cupboard can't be done together, the avalanche would overwhelm us all.

Can't wait for the updategrin

I wonder if this thread will fill up with people bookmarking their place before tidy gets back?

oops, this appears to be another one of the 1000 posts accidentally used as a bookmark

lunar I did say "start thinking about"...

I think mine has its own ecosystem by now.

DontActuallyLikePrunes Fri 16-Aug-13 09:56:27

Surely nobody could be in any doubt that TidyDancer wouldn;t be doing it, after her responses? confused
Is this a wind up?

IKnewHouseworkWasDangerous Fri 16-Aug-13 10:01:26

Horry are you in my brain? Though I have several of those cupboards and only 1 dc but that was pretty darn close.

RustyBear Fri 16-Aug-13 10:02:46

Partly a bookmark and partly a repost of the ideal wedding present to fit the Hollywood theme...

OK this is better than any soap opera !
marking place . . .

Isityouorme Fri 16-Aug-13 10:05:28

I was hoping there was an update ...... I got really excited!!!

FruOla Fri 16-Aug-13 10:08:26

DontActually, Tidy is meeting another dis-invited friend (HunFriend) for a drink tonight - not Gluezilla. But clearly Glue has managed to upset/offend HunFriend too - so what we're waiting for is find out what it is she's done to HunFriend grin

trixymalixy Fri 16-Aug-13 10:08:47

Well done on the updates.

<<shameless place marking>>

MissStrawberry Fri 16-Aug-13 10:08:59

I still can't decide whether I feel sorry for GlueZilla because she doesn't have the social skills to know this is OOO or be shocked at her arrogance.

TeWiSavesTheDay Fri 16-Aug-13 10:12:35

farrowandbawl Fri 16-Aug-13 10:15:46

This morning I realised that I have no life.

I'm looking forward to Tidy's update after HER night out, more than I look forward to going out on my own nights out. I can not believe that thread No4 was the second thing I thought about after I woke this morning.

Markes place with no shame what so ever.

BurningAsh Fri 16-Aug-13 10:19:54

Have followed this through the threads....just marking my place for tonight's update

DuchessFanny Fri 16-Aug-13 10:23:19

Yet again marking my place ! Have to go home from our hols tomorrow, so will need good reading material for the journey home !!

LongTailedTit Fri 16-Aug-13 10:24:16

Yegods, Glue is as self-centred as a gyroscope, those summaries make it sound even worse than I remember! shock

Morgause Fri 16-Aug-13 10:24:45

Hope she isn't out too late I have work in the morning.

Maybe I should have an afternoon nap to be sure I'm awake.

SunnyIntervals Fri 16-Aug-13 10:26:17

On tenterhooks!!

UPDATE

I have cleaned my kitchen.

As you were.

grin

nobeer Fri 16-Aug-13 10:33:30

Horry and DadDad excellent updates smile

CoffeeOne Fri 16-Aug-13 10:34:00

shamelessly marking place

ClaudiaWinklepants Fri 16-Aug-13 10:34:53

Also shamelessly marking my place grin

This truly is the thread that keeps giving. Look forward to hearing about meeting with Hunfriend. My friend hunned me yesterday by text - made my teeth itch!

Riddo Fri 16-Aug-13 10:45:09

I'm on holiday and meant to be spending time with the family. I can't stay away from this thread though and tomorrow we're going to a cottage with no wifi, I don't know how I'll cope grin

magimedi Fri 16-Aug-13 10:45:52

Wonderful updates & I am so pleased to see that many of you have such sad lives as me in that this thread is the greatest thrill of the day!

Wilberforce2 Fri 16-Aug-13 10:46:03

Shamelessly place marking, cannot wait for update tonight! smile

Katisha Fri 16-Aug-13 10:48:31

YouTheCat Fri 16-Aug-13 11:00:08

I have wine for later. grin

Mimishimi Fri 16-Aug-13 11:07:27

Sadly the other thread has not quite reached the 1000 post mark so why don't we just finish that one off with a bit of placemarking too?

mistlethrush Fri 16-Aug-13 11:13:50

I'm waiting for the update following Tidy's night out with other uninvited friend with interest grin

MrsBungle Fri 16-Aug-13 11:15:32

Those updates by horry and dad are brilliant! I read all the threads and still seemed to miss things!

MammaTJ Fri 16-Aug-13 11:19:17

Does 'hunfriend' own a particularly nice car? She could be cauffuer!

Does she have a talent for cake decorating?

Does she have catering experience?

Maybe able to bang out a hymn or two on an organ? Has a degree in theology?

Just speculating as to what unreasonable demands have been made upon her! not at all marking place

Mimishimi Fri 16-Aug-13 11:20:19

Yeah, I didn't read those exchanges between them just after the first one. I don't know how I missed them. Thanks ... er... dad?

Still18atheart Fri 16-Aug-13 11:21:06

I have just spent the best part of an hour and a half reading threads 2 & 3.

So I am now removing my lurkers cloak of invisibility and bookmarking.

georgedawes Fri 16-Aug-13 11:31:39

BoreOfWhabylon Fri 16-Aug-13 11:35:09

Fabulous updates! Thank you horry and daddad.

Returning to the theme: when I think 'iconic 60s Hollywood film', I think of The Sound Of Music. I am now picturing Sylvanian Families dressed as nuns, nazis, and stern autocratic men, groups of females clad in dresses made of matching curtain material and all males not stern autocrats/nazis wearing leather shorts.

As the bride enters the church, the choir strikes up with "How Do You Solve A Problem Like Gluezilla?"

For the group picture, they are all fleeing from the church, pursued by a giant Sylvanian Hitler and singing "The Hills Are Alive".

SerotoninCanEatTomorrow Fri 16-Aug-13 11:36:47

Thread 4!

not at all place marking, never

onedev Fri 16-Aug-13 11:38:29

Can't believe it's thread 4& I'm logging in occasionally whilst on holiday to check for updatesgrin.

Fab summary & especially the additional notes Horry!!

Cuddlydragon Fri 16-Aug-13 11:51:58

I have no life. Can't wait for tonight's instalment.

I agree that Dad's cut and paste really does highlight just how brass necked Gluebride really is. Can't wait for the next update!

Marking my spot here, I'm off to a wedding today so will have to mn on the sly !

I hadn't realised there was a new thread - I posted on the last one that I think TidyDancer should volunteer to do the decorating, and we could all go along and help her - mwah hahahahaha [evil grin emoticon - that I told MNHQ we need, but did they listen, ohhh no]

ClaraOswald Fri 16-Aug-13 11:53:02

Tidy

Do you have any mutual friends who are going to the wedding?

I have a feeling that Gluezilla will spend the entire reception complaining about how you let her down at the last minute and that you are unreliable, etc.

She will certainly have spent the last two weeks moaning to her family and if the mother of the bride is a gossip then no doubt your name will be mud, long before the actual ceremony. Do you have anyone in place to operate a counter-intelligence attack?

SmiteYouWithThunderbolts Fri 16-Aug-13 11:55:53

Oooh, another development! Has Hunfriend told Gluezilla why she's annoyed? Is that what her Faceache status was about?

Bang goes the rest of my day!

DSJamesHathaway Fri 16-Aug-13 11:56:40

Thanks Horry and Dad for the brilliant updates. Loking forward to the next installment later.

knickernicker Fri 16-Aug-13 12:07:07

Does tidydancer know part 4 is here?

DameDeepRedBetty Fri 16-Aug-13 12:09:27

Placemarking even more shamelessly than the other shameless placemarkers... so looking forward to tonight's/tomorrow morning's entertainment!

DameDeepRedBetty Fri 16-Aug-13 12:10:20

Tidy Dancer started this thread for us Knickernicker. She's thoughtful that way. Unlike Gluezilla...

dubstarr73 Fri 16-Aug-13 12:11:10

There was an ad on the other day for Sylvanian Famillies and i thought of Tidydancer and what poses they should be striking.And whether Gluezilla had been in touch,

ShellyBoobs Fri 16-Aug-13 12:14:43

Looking forward to tonight's update.

Have you considered a dictaphone or at the very least a notepad, Tidy?

We can't have the haze of alcohol fuzzing your memory of the conversation with hunfriend.

Rooners Fri 16-Aug-13 12:21:36

Ooh!

Haggischucker Fri 16-Aug-13 12:23:26

This is better than the telly! Marking place for later!

BlackeyedSusan Fri 16-Aug-13 12:26:36

I think tidy has gone off to work. she kindly started this thread for speculation before her meeting with hunned friend tonight.

yes I definitely think there needs to be a counter offensive in the not decorating the hall saga. do you know any of the invited guests? does hunned friend?

PennieLane Fri 16-Aug-13 12:32:50

Thank you horry!!!

Platinumstart Fri 16-Aug-13 12:34:21

Rowgtfc72 Fri 16-Aug-13 12:48:19

Whos stolen the cake?

I can't believe that we're on to thread 4 already - this is great. Can't wait for the update from this evenings drinks.

oh blimey! i was right about there needing to be a thread 4 then shock goes off to but lotto ticket

i cant wait to hear what hunfriend has to say grin

nauticant Fri 16-Aug-13 13:26:40

Why do posters mark their place? Isn't it easier to use the bookmarking function and stick the thread in the list of watched threads?

I realise I might be asking a question that's been done to death over many threads and vast numbers of posts.

Thumbwitch Fri 16-Aug-13 13:30:27

I don't have the bookmarking function because I am an old gimmer still using MN CLassic and it's not available. Plus I default to Threads I'm On so it's easier to see what's going on if I placemark on a thread. smile

aladdinsane Fri 16-Aug-13 13:34:14

how do you bookmark? help please

mindyourownbusiness Fri 16-Aug-13 13:35:10

Me too - old gimmer. Thank Crunchie it's Friday. I made it and didn't self destruct from excitement. grin

Come on Tidy - urry up !!!!!!

Sorry.

nauticant Fri 16-Aug-13 13:47:41

aladdinsane: "how do you bookmark?"

On any Talk page, the "Customise" link takes you to the Preferences page on which you'll find "Other options". In the list presented under "Other options", there's "Display bookmark links" for which you select "Yes". Once that's activated, then on any thread, if you take your mouse cursor over to the right-hand side of a post, a clickable "Bookmark" button is displayed. If you click this, then if you leave the thread and return to it, you'll go automatically to your bookmarked post.

You can bookmark many threads, not just one.

I'd imagine on a mobile device, phone, tablet, etc, this is a bit hit and miss depending on the device.

ArrowofApollo Fri 16-Aug-13 13:51:22

Great summaries! Also shamelessly placemarking. Can't wait until tonight - you must update as soon as you get home grin

nauticant Fri 16-Aug-13 13:52:31

Ahh Thumbwitch, I see now. Cheers. I use Mumsnet New which does allow bookmarking.

nipersvest Fri 16-Aug-13 13:53:41

i am now hooked on the next update! would also love to know what happened to spidercharlotte and her thread from a couple of weeks ago about being 'wendy'd' and receiving a text not meant for her, was all rather sad so i worry about her.

DameDeepRedBetty Fri 16-Aug-13 13:55:33

To save your place, hover the cursor over the bottom right of the post you've read up to. A little blue box saying 'bookmark' appears. If you click on it, it will change and say 'saved!' instead. Next time you visit that thread, you will automatically go to the post you saved.

Placemarking is when you write something on a thread just to be on there, rather than a considered thoughtful comment. The thread will automatically go there when you next visit, but it also has the benefit of moving the thread into Threads I'm On.

I use placemarking a lot as I reserve Threads I'm Watching for saving threads for a rainy day. There are about 25 in there, with handy advice on things like feeding my veggie dd2, travel advice for a couple of foreign destinations I want to visit in the next couple of years, and a really good thread about helping dds when they start their periods, which I saved four years ago and finally needed just after Christmas this year.

DameDeepRedBetty Fri 16-Aug-13 13:56:50

Took HOURS to write that lot out.

NorfolkIngWay Fri 16-Aug-13 14:01:27

Part 4 !
Great summary of events so far - will be here tonight .Have we got snacks wine ready ? grin

RustyBear Fri 16-Aug-13 14:02:24

Bookmarking on the iPad is a bit different - you have to touch the post, but it will sometimes randomly try to copy the whole post, or just highlight one word - I think it depends on exactly how many milliseconds you touch for. So it's easier for me to post as my bookmarks bar link is to Threads I'm On, so I will normally go there first .

MissStrawberry Fri 16-Aug-13 14:04:31

RunFatGirlRun Fri 16-Aug-13 14:09:10

.....just running past minding my own business don't mind me ......

Huh, is cake working again?

There must be a cake issue with Gluezilla. I simply can't believe she's ordered one and paid for it.

jacks365 Fri 16-Aug-13 14:16:46

Just popped to my local shop and there's a wedding car just made for gluezilla 50/60 american job now just picture it with sylvanian families all over the back window.

i mark my place bacause 1) im on the app and its not an option 2) my watch function doesnt and has never worked on the app

also... (while im on a roll) you cant highlight posts on the app either... and yes i am fed up of some posters bitching having a go at me and telling me im wrong! angry

i know no one mentioned highlighting... but im putting it out there anyway

anyhoo... as you were grin

How many people are marking their place by explaining how they can't bookmark wink

QOD Fri 16-Aug-13 14:58:47

Oooooh <wedge>

KoalaFace Fri 16-Aug-13 15:02:23

So does anyone know what HunFriend actually said on Hatebook that led to being 'hunned'?

PedantMarina Fri 16-Aug-13 15:04:17

Tidy esp re: the alcohol that's probably going to be consumed, we're all very concerned. So, where are you meeting up? And would you like me to come and be stenographer, so you don't have to take notes, and can get as drunk as you like?

not at all being a voyeur over here, of course

daisychain01 Fri 16-Aug-13 15:06:14

Marking my place surreptitiously ....

Why not do a vote for a 'MN friend' to go along and take the minutes for the hunfriend meeting ?

Apparently there is a newly created cake emoticon. Definitely a strong case to campaign for a gluestick now!!

daisychain01 Fri 16-Aug-13 15:10:48

Xpost with Pedant grin

Thumbwitch Fri 16-Aug-13 15:13:29

Whoever got high off a Prittstick? Uhu, maybe! But it needs to be tube glue for the real impact <<possibly overthinking this just a tad>>

cake, anyone? brew?

daisychain01 Fri 16-Aug-13 15:18:28

Koala it was a fb comment Hunfriend made that seemed to intimate she had been 'de-invited' from the wedding, as is Gluezilla's insensitive (clueless?) triage approach to inviting guests, which caused Gluezilla to ask the whatsup Hun? Question as if butter wouldn't melt in her mouth.

CeliaFate Fri 16-Aug-13 15:22:59

Marking my place.

daisychain01 Fri 16-Aug-13 15:25:07

I think the gluestick is likely more symbolic than accurate, thumbwitch.

It probably needs to be a good hardcore bucket of high solvency Evostick to really do it justice. grin

The summer of 2013 will go down in history as the year everyone got hooked on Gluezilla .. Better than The Summer of Love IMHO

prettybird Fri 16-Aug-13 15:31:51

MadameGazelleIsMyMum Fri 16-Aug-13 15:40:15

Horry fab update

What is the running away from the T-Rex photo? Is it anything to do with supermarkets, dead flies & Sharon or am I barking up the wrong tree?

SmiteYouWithThunderbolts Fri 16-Aug-13 15:48:46

Oh my god, bookmarking is my new favourite toy!

impatienttobemummy Fri 16-Aug-13 15:57:44

Marking place! Was worried I was going to be bored tonight! Not now!

Strokethefurrywall Fri 16-Aug-13 15:59:56

Have no idea how to bookmark, so writing this random post instead. I'm 6 hours behind GMT so there better be a good update by the time my work day is finished!!

TomaszSchafernaker Fri 16-Aug-13 16:21:41

dad thanks for the recap.

Surely now that we are on the the 4th thread MNHQ can give us some sort of temporary smiley in celebration - just for the wedding weekend which of course we will need to guesstimate.

It may have moved on from the previous suggestions to a sylvanian in 50's gear??

YouTheCat Fri 16-Aug-13 16:29:05

I have even baked a cake grin

HepsibarCrinkletoes Fri 16-Aug-13 16:32:20

farrowandbawl Fri 16-Aug-13 16:32:42

DD's baked a cake today, it's chocolate fudge...I'm having it later while waiting for the update. grin

SarahAndFuck Fri 16-Aug-13 16:37:25

I was on holiday and missed the end of part three!

Just off to find it.

This is in no way a place marking post.

YouTheCat Fri 16-Aug-13 16:39:07

I made a coffee one. Ds's preference.

SilverOldie Fri 16-Aug-13 16:42:32

Anyone else hoping Hunfriend only has time for one drink a) so Tidy doesn't get drunk and forget the conversation and b) gets home sooner rather than later?

daisychain01 Fri 16-Aug-13 17:23:30

Silver maybe Tiidy can do great service to this thread by making one drink last a bit longer, so we get more juicy gossip but she's sober enough to tell us about it.

SkinnybitchWannabe Fri 16-Aug-13 17:39:38

Ive learnt how to mark my place!!!!! grin
Having a wine to celebrate.

mindyourownbusiness Fri 16-Aug-13 17:57:15

I have a large bag of sea salted kettle chips. I had to eat a large bar of peppermint Aero all to myself last night. I was just so greedy worked up on the eve of the next instalment. I may need incontinence pants for the actual wedding itself. grin You know I always thought l didn't have a bad bone in me but I so want this wedding to go completely tits up blush

aladdinsane Fri 16-Aug-13 18:21:01

Thank you - i really couldnt bookmark and now I can

farrowandbawl Fri 16-Aug-13 18:24:12

Ohh, YoutheCat - I love coffee cake.

SomethingSuitablyWitty Fri 16-Aug-13 18:28:42

Don't know if I can mark my place on phone app but am damn well going to try!

bluebump Fri 16-Aug-13 18:38:09

Saves place, clicks 'watch this thread' and posts on it. That should cover it so I don't miss an update grin

MaBumble Fri 16-Aug-13 18:40:15

I have gin. I have tonic. So hope the post night out update is one that will have us all OooOing

KoalaFace Fri 16-Aug-13 18:41:38

Thank you DaisyChain smile you get my first cake

Summer of Gluezilla! Surely someone can mock up some lyrics to the tune of Summer of '69!

LozzaCro Fri 16-Aug-13 18:46:01

I have read threads 1-3 over the last few days and ... Oh my Gaaahh! Please please please, will someone tell me how to placemark?

daisychain01 Fri 16-Aug-13 18:46:23

Awww Koala thats totally brillopads!!!

daisychain01 Fri 16-Aug-13 18:47:49

Re the lyrics, yes totally agree and there are some talented lyricists and poets on here smile

AntlersInAllOfMyDecorating Fri 16-Aug-13 18:54:02

"Summer Of '69"
I got my first real save the date
Pinned on the family's fridge
Cleared my diary 'til my fingers bled
It was the summer of 'Gluezilla

Me and some girls from school
Had stayed friends and we tried real hard.
A bridesmaid quit, F was getting married
I should've known we'd never get a final invite

Oh, when I look back now
Waiting for a reply seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
I wouldn't decorate if you paid me
Those were the best days of my life

F, ain't no use in complainin'
When you've got no-one to do your job
Spent my evening's on Mumsnet
And that's when I met you, yeah

Usin' on your sista's email
You told me that you'd wait forever
Oh, and when you were passive aggressive
I knew that it was still never
Those were the best days of my life

Oh, yeah.
Back in the summer of '69, oh.

Hun we were killin' time on AIBU
We had Sylvanians
We needed to mark our place
I guess no thread can last forever, forever, no!

And now the updates are changin'
Look at the emails that have come and gone
Sometimes when I stare at that old STD
I think about you, wonder what went wrong

Oh, yeah.
Back in the summer of '13, oh.
It was the summer of '13, oh, yeah.
Me and my vipers in '13, oh.
It was the summer, the summer, the summer of 'Gluezilla, yeah.

Marking place.

Thank God I've customised to show OPs posts in green. I'd never be able to keep up or work out what was going on otherwise.

As you were grin

YouTheCat Fri 16-Aug-13 18:56:24

Mindyourown, I had a large bar of mint aero last night too! grin

But I shared it with dp.

What time is Tidy going out with Hunfriend ??

Did I miss anything?

<knows full well she hasn't as she has read all 3100+ posts on this, just a teeny bookmark>

imbe123 Fri 16-Aug-13 19:30:35

Got my &#127863;ready and waiting

ages ago I worked out how to highlight my posts in green and OPs posts in purple. This is amazing when trying to catch up. God knows how I did though :-)

imbe123 Fri 16-Aug-13 19:31:06

Wine don't know what happened there

Inertia Fri 16-Aug-13 19:32:49

Do we know whether Hunfriend was also asked to decorate the venue, or just uninvited after a STD card ? Or is finding out part of Tidy's mission ?

Who is going to decorate the hall - gluesister?

MrsKoala Fri 16-Aug-13 19:35:37

I have been chuckling away to this thread series for days. The other night there was a shit programme on (well it is Canada - hurrumph) and in it someone was getting married and they said the rhyme 'something old something new, something borrowed something ...' and i shouted GLUE at which point i laughed like a drain and DH seriously considered leaving me.

Another random thought which popped into my head was Tidy now needs to start every conversation with Gluezilla with the salutation 'UHU'. grin

I'm very sad i know. Oh and Horry i was disappointed that in your catch up you failed to mention that i picked up Zammos ice cream once in Croydon. Tsk tsk - jealousy is not becoming on anyone you know. ;)

CrapBag Fri 16-Aug-13 19:40:35

Looking forward to Hunfriend to possibly elaborate on more crazy requests from GZ, and so glad I found out how to book mark. I had already colour coded mine and OPs posts but didn't realise how to bookmark too.

cake just because I like this new emotion. grin

YouTheCat Fri 16-Aug-13 19:44:25

I had bacon and egg pie as well as the coffee cake. Plenty of time for baking whilst awaiting an update. grin

Still18atheart Fri 16-Aug-13 20:01:04

I love this post A) because it is a purely a fab post and it's post like this which make you realise that the term bridezilla really does mean something. out there. And more importantly B) I've learnt how to bookmark on mn.

YY Blueandwhite, so glad I've got the ops post highlighted in pink.

FruOla Fri 16-Aug-13 20:02:35

Zing, you might just about have time to read through 3,187 posts on 4 threads - before Tidy gets home from her drink with HunFriend to find out what Gluezilla has done to HunFriend too grin.

Bluesparks Fri 16-Aug-13 20:07:04

Gets comfy.

daisychain01 Fri 16-Aug-13 20:08:49

Antlers you have turned Bryan Adams' power ballad into a classic and thoroughly deserve wine + cake + evostick on tap

Tobagostreet Fri 16-Aug-13 20:13:08

Looking forward to an update from Tidy.

With 'Epic' threads like this, don't you ever wish that the 'baddie', in this case glueface (or whatever we're calling her), would:

1. find out about the thread on MN;
2. read the many, many comments from lots of independent and unconnected and even at times, reasonable, people;
3. then realise just how unacceptable their behaviour has been, particularly their 'put out' attitude following a polite decline;
4. add to the thread to say that they have come to their senses and are sorry?

Wouldn't that be nice?

AlpacaPicnic Fri 16-Aug-13 20:15:42

I might just do that. There's nothing on tv.

Cant't you just tell her to fuck off?

YoureAllABunchOfBastards Fri 16-Aug-13 20:23:52

Not place marking at all, oh no...

FruOla Fri 16-Aug-13 20:26:28

Porto. Tidy's drink this evening is not with Gluezilla, it's with another dis-invited friend (HunFriend) who Gluezilla has also managed to upset/offend. What we're waiting to find out from Tidy is, what on earth has GZ done to upset the other friend.

Given GZ's previous form, it's got to be something fairly awful grin

mrspink27 Fri 16-Aug-13 20:30:36

Shameless delurk and placemarking!

mindyourownbusiness Fri 16-Aug-13 20:31:54

Youthecat I don't think you quite grasp the concept of having a large bar of peppermint Aero. You see you didn't have a large bar, now did you ? - because you sh sh sh sh (its no good I cant say it in the same sentence as Peppermint Aero) <belts self round head> shared yours with DP.

You weirdo you ! grin

Oh come on Tidy ffs , mi suspenders are killing me.

So, what time is the drink?

place marks

cake anyone? Just in case of emergencies, you understand.

Shamelessly marking place.

Cuddlydragon Fri 16-Aug-13 20:37:55

Feet up, wine and cake anytime you like OP.....

YouTheCat Fri 16-Aug-13 20:40:43

Strictly speaking I didn't share it, Mindyourown. It was dp's, so he shared it. wink

QueenStromba Fri 16-Aug-13 20:41:10

Did Tidy give an ETA on when she'd be back?

MooseBeTimeForSpring Fri 16-Aug-13 20:41:27

Gah! I've just scrolled through that lot for nuffink. Anyone know what time OP was meeting HunFriend. Seems like there's a lot of chatting going on! I was expecting surreptitious MNing from the ladies loo!!

FruOla Fri 16-Aug-13 20:42:37

She did say that she wouldn't be too late because they (TidyDancerFamily) have an early start tomorrow, because they're going out somewhere.

Isabeller Fri 16-Aug-13 20:46:03

Marking my cake

muses: I wonder if Hunfriend is a professional cakehun who has declined last minute request to bake Gluecake leaving sylvanian bride even stucker...

mindyourownbusiness Fri 16-Aug-13 20:46:45

Ah alright - I'll let you off in that case. Yes that's another rule in our house - any Peppermint Aero that comes through our door instantly becomes mine by default - Mine , all mine I tell you get your sticky mitts off

I actually need chocolate now , or an UPDATE <glares towards Tiny>

mindyourownbusiness Fri 16-Aug-13 20:49:32

Tiny I hope you're not getting pissed now while all us saddos lot are staying in on a Friday night of all nights just to get the live update.

Morgause Fri 16-Aug-13 20:50:32

<settles down>

Well this is nice. More cake anyone?

TidyDancer Fri 16-Aug-13 20:53:40

I'm home! And a little bit tipsy, but with it enough to update!

In summation, hunfriend has been asked by gluezilla if she is available to help on the day. grin Had to practically hold in the snorts of laughter! Apparently, gluezilla has been badly let down at the last minute (wonder who by....?) and is desperate for help. Hunfriend simply laughed and suggested she call a wedding planner, as hunfriend will be in Paris. Luckily Paris had been booked before so she really did have a legitimate excuse! She is as crap a liar as I am!

A few messages were exchanged between the two of them, during which gluezilla uttered the immortal words "why doesn't anyone want to help me?!" She is very upset apparently. hmm

Still can't believe gluezilla has forced over 3000 posts! Something tells me she'd be proud! grin

YouTheCat Fri 16-Aug-13 20:55:22

Omg, Tidy, that is pure gold. grin

AntlersInAllOfMyDecorating Fri 16-Aug-13 20:55:50

Fantastic Tidy! Wine all round!

There are over 3000 posts in answer to her question!

Badly let down at the last minute! Hilarious!

At least she isn't saying who has committed this heinous crime against the wedding of the century.

TVTonight Fri 16-Aug-13 20:55:59

Brilliant

IKnewHouseworkWasDangerous Fri 16-Aug-13 20:56:30

Did you say she had asked you too?

mindyourownbusiness Fri 16-Aug-13 20:56:55

We should have given Tidy a curfew of 9pm.

I hope she's not been abducted and locked in the hall with a load of streamers and sticky back plastic. In fact Hunzilla and Gluezilla could be one and the same - this could be a set up. hmm

TeWiSavesTheDay Fri 16-Aug-13 20:57:52

grin that'd hilarious - hope you had a good laugh about gluezilla!

thistlelicker Fri 16-Aug-13 20:58:29

Hahahahahaha gaga

MissStrawberry Fri 16-Aug-13 20:59:53

DOes the friend you went out with know what has gone on with you?

GlueZilla is still talking bollocks isn't she? You can only be let down if someone said they would do something in the first place!!

SueDoku Fri 16-Aug-13 21:02:22

I really cannot believe this (well, I can, sadly...!!) How can anyone be so oblivious to normal human interaction..??? grin

Tidy, have a piece of cake - it's the least you deserve..!!!!

Dubjackeen Fri 16-Aug-13 21:02:38

Brilliant update, Tidy! This thread definitely could be a mini series yet. smile I wonder why does nobody want to help poor old Gluezilla. After all, they got save the date cards. wink

SmiteYouWithThunderbolts Fri 16-Aug-13 21:03:06

OMG I cannot get over what a tool Gluezilla is! Badly let down my arse.

What did Hunfriend make of what had gone down between you and Gluezilla?

ChasedByBees Fri 16-Aug-13 21:03:30

Gah I want to find you, steal your phone and text/phone Gluezilla some home truths. I would then give your phone back.

TidyDancer Fri 16-Aug-13 21:04:58

Hunfriend knows everything now. She didn't before. She sent me a text message to say she'd got home okay and said "I don't know what's gotten into her, she used to be normal!".

catsrus Fri 16-Aug-13 21:06:06

Thank you tidy I'm on a train - a little bit tipsy too - so very pleased that I have the update and won't be screaming at the Ipad as i lose signal going through tunnels

she really hasn't got a clue has she?

mindyourownbusiness Fri 16-Aug-13 21:06:16

Ahh there you are what time do you call this ?

It actually sounds like she really was put out that Hun didn't rush to cancel her Paris holiday to help her.

The womans got more neck than a giraffe.

Katisha Fri 16-Aug-13 21:11:35

Can I just clarify - was hunfriend one of the uninvited as well. She'd had a revoked Save the Day as well?

iamadoozermum Fri 16-Aug-13 21:11:58

Don't know if anyone has asked this before. (difficult to remember with this many posts!), but is it possible that Tidy wasn't the first person who was asked and said no? Perhaps Gluezilla has been steadily working her way through The Twenty?

ShoeJunkie Fri 16-Aug-13 21:12:11

Actual mumsnet gold!

SoupDragon Fri 16-Aug-13 21:13:53

Apparently, gluezilla has been badly let down at the last minute

[arf]

NorfolkIngWay Fri 16-Aug-13 21:13:53

How utterly bizarre that Gluezilla doesn't seem to realise that those who might think they are her friends might expect an invite rather than want to "help".
What planet is she on ?? Planetgluegrin

Ezio Fri 16-Aug-13 21:14:45

I reckon Gluezilla had someone lined up and had to pull out, and has been frantically going the twenty to get someone, probably convincing herself that Tidy will do it, then went to hunfriend.

helgavonrausling Fri 16-Aug-13 21:15:18

Ahaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaa "Why doesn't anyone want to help me?"

Because you're a mannerless, graceless, self-obsessed glue-sniffing mentalist

CrapBag Fri 16-Aug-13 21:18:28

"badly let down at the last minute"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GZ really gets better doesn't she. grin

What was Hunfriends reaction to the truth then?

Morgause Fri 16-Aug-13 21:19:09

Wonderful! I like Hunfriend.

Decorations are going to be a bit shit then.

As long as the cake is all right.

SilverOldie Fri 16-Aug-13 21:28:38

It's a pity that Gluezilla will never see these threads. It might give her a big enough jolt to realize how horribly she has behaved. On second thoughts, from what we know of Gluezilla, it probably wouldn't.

Well done to Hunfriend for sticking to her guns. The wedding can't be far off and Gluezilla is in deep doo doo. It wouldn't surprise me if she got her sister to e-mail you again, Tidy. No is a complete sentence.

farrowandbawl Fri 16-Aug-13 21:35:22

OMG, it just gets better and better. What a cheek.

She's not going to have any fiends left by the end of this, or a decorated venue by the looks of it either.

farrowandbawl Fri 16-Aug-13 21:35:41

Thank you for getting back to us Tidy.

farrowandbawl Fri 16-Aug-13 21:36:29

Fiends? Nope, she's got that by the bucket load.

Clearly, I ment FRIENDS.

tidy I think I love you for this thread. Sorry to be revelling in your life but this is comedy gold

iamadoozer I have a sneaking suspicion you are right.

why doesn't anyone want to help me - you still haven't gotten that its rude then, despite it being spelt out to you?

she used to be normal grin

farrowandbawl Fri 16-Aug-13 21:39:38

katisha

Yes. The hunfriend is one of the 20 that got revoked.

RenterNomad Fri 16-Aug-13 21:42:06

Love it!

pongping Fri 16-Aug-13 21:42:28

Crazy!

yay! I'm at my wedding! bit just has to check! mo theme here, just wine and cake grin

tidy I think I have a girl crush on you!

oh my word... brilliant update!

id love to know how many people and who has been asked to help... i bet most of the 20 have.

i dont understand why she cant just do them herself... lazy caaaahhh grin

oh, I'm guessing hunfriend hasn't been contacted by gluesister then?
gluezilla simply can't understand why you can't delay your flight/train to paris, and is deeply upset

DameFanny Fri 16-Aug-13 21:46:49

Oh congratulations MrsGlaikit! wine

prettybird Fri 16-Aug-13 21:49:11

Brilliant. grin

If you were pitching this as a storyline, it would get rejected as implausible! wink

Patchouli Fri 16-Aug-13 21:52:49

Glue's had it in her head that you'll be doing the decorating for much longer than you've known about.

diddl Fri 16-Aug-13 21:53:03

Has it not occurred to her to ask actual guests??

Or will they all be too busy getting ready as it needs doing on the day?

btw, my OH just shook his head and buggered off into the kitchen after I squealed in delight that this update popped in. I'm not sure if that's distain at me or the fact that this is what our Friday's have become blush

nobeer Fri 16-Aug-13 21:57:17

Glaikit very impressed you clocked in on your wedding day! Is it Hollywood Glamour theme by any chance?! Congratulations flowers wine

"Why doesn't anyone want to help me?!"

Do you think she's asked anyone who's actually invited? Might get different responses.

Thanks for updating us.

dutchyoriginal Fri 16-Aug-13 21:58:39

You know, I really feel for the bride. First, she has gone through the trouble of sending aaaallll these people lovely STD cards, so they have something lovely to put on the fridge. Also, anyone knows that anticipatory pleasure is the best pleasure. Then, right at the point where people would have to start worrying about outfits and fitting all their usual weekend activities around the wedding, TADAA, no invite, so a whole weekend to themselves and no costs! It's the kind thing to do really.

Apparently, Tidy is still disappointed not to see her close friend on her wedding, so she gets offered the behind the scenes-option. Everyone knows that at each event, everyone is fighting to get the backstage passes! And she refuses! shock At least 2-3 times! shock shock shock Backstage passes to the event of the year!
more shock

Thinking about it, we are ALL unreasonable!

grin

Glai is it really your wedding? I missed that and probably just assumed you were going to someone elses. If it is yours then mega mega congrats, and all the wine and cake you can fit in xxx

birdmomma Fri 16-Aug-13 22:00:05

Thank you, thank you, thank you to the people who taught me how to book mark on this thread. I have avoided place marking so far, and have had to sift through literally thousands of messages to get an update. And Tidy is now nicely highlighted in a pleasant sage green too. Hurrah!

KoalaFace Fri 16-Aug-13 22:00:39

Oh Tidy I do love you for this.

Antlers you are a very talented!

Pachacuti Fri 16-Aug-13 22:02:32

diddl, IIRC back on the first thread it was explained that GZ couldn't possibly ask any of the invited guest as that would spoil the surprise for them...

pigletmania Fri 16-Aug-13 22:07:07

Thanks fr that tidy, why does anybody not want to help her, because she is a USER who treats people like rubbish, why should people elp somebody like that. Karma and all that!

farrowandbawl Fri 16-Aug-13 22:08:09

That's how I remember it too Pachacuti.

I was supposed to be a surprise for the other guests who did get an invite.

It was this that made my mouth drop open in disbelief in the first place.

We have cake smile

I wondered if hun friend was asked to decorate and she was grin

Do either of you know a guest who was invited out of the 80

but how will they know to come in their godzilla outfits if not told of the theme???Is the theme the surprise??
There were a lot of biblical films made in the 50s, maybe Gluezilla may arrive on a donkey dressed in blue..... and expect gold for her gifts

oh no not.my wedding! sorry bit too much wine

this is the best smile

you just couldn't make it up - epic smile

You need to facestalk the rest of the Gluezilla Twenty now Tidy

FatOwl Fri 16-Aug-13 22:23:36

Tidy, PLEASE say you do know someone who has actually been honoured with an invitation so we can get an update after the actual wedding! We really have to know what the decorations were like

ShutTheFuckUpBarbara Fri 16-Aug-13 22:40:52

Thanks for the update Tidy!

Gluezilla really is priceless...

PiratePanda Fri 16-Aug-13 22:44:59

<delurking having been waving pom poms madly from the sidelines>

4 threads!!! Impressive. And OMG Gluezilla is such a tool.

Tell your dh the two highlights of my day today were seeing this update & buying a new oven glove..

I win the sad Friday prize grin

MummyBeerest Fri 16-Aug-13 22:51:45

O.M.G.!...

When is the actual wedding? There should be a special wedding-themed thread on the blessed day.

Mimishimi Fri 16-Aug-13 22:54:50

Don't know if anyone has asked this before. (difficult to remember with this many posts!), but is it possible that Tidy wasn't the first person who was asked and said no? Perhaps Gluezilla has been steadily working her way through The Twenty?

That is seeming likely now. The more I think about this the more I'm thinking that those Save-the-Dates but no invites were not just the enthusiastic effusions of a bride who had not yet finalized her guest list but sent deliberately as her back-up list plan for a team of decorators, photographers, caterers etc. Hence the "why does noone want to help me?". Tidy probably isn't the first and only person who has een asked. Each of the twenty, I'm sure, will be found to have some special skill that the b2b thought might be useful because she is a user.

Strokethefurrywall Fri 16-Aug-13 22:57:37

It was worth staying at the office late (4.58pm is late!!!!) just for this update.

She is batshit crazy..... grin

Can you create an 'event' on fb that clashes with the big day and just invite the 20 uninvited....

anonacfr Fri 16-Aug-13 23:04:43

Who asks their guests to decorate in the first place???? Let alone non-guests of course.
Surely decorating the venue should be in the fucking budget to start with?

Failing that she needs to do it herself. I'm amazed she hasn't guilt tripped her sister into doing it.

daisychain01 Fri 16-Aug-13 23:06:22

Car-crash "friends" like that are unfortunately the ones who are so insensitive, they hang around like a bad smell.

What's the betting when Mrs Gluezilla gets back from her Glue-moon she will contact the "unlucky 20" and suggest they all go out for a girly meal (they're paying for her of course) so she can show them photos of the wedding they all missed.

Well, surely they will be gagging to find out what the hall looked like and what Glue's dress and makeup were like and .... Snork.

Mimishimi Fri 16-Aug-13 23:07:15

Heheh Edwina, that's what I was thinking. The uninvited twenty should just have their own bash for the rest of the town, preferably as close to the bride's venue as possible and everyone will sneak off from b2b's boring undecorated wedding reception to their party!

pigletmania Fri 16-Aug-13 23:15:43

I agree daisy, I would not put it past her to be so insensitive, and if tat happened I would not go

The Uninvited.

Sounds like it should be the title of a good horror movie

grin

MrsKoala Fri 16-Aug-13 23:18:52

grin 'badly let down' ! shock Yes your manners have really let you down here love!

I reckon Tidy was asked first out of 'the social wilderness twenty' because of her skills. It probably never even occurred to GZ that she may possibly say no. When you are so far up your own jacksy, like this one, it just wouldn't have registered as an option. I think her 'badly let down' refers to Tidy. She was expecting her to say yes, so planned everything around that and then Tidy let her down by saying no. This will be outrageous to the terminally self absorbed. I'm sure she genuinely feels let down badly. But just because she feels it doesn't make it fucking so!

Tidy - You defo need some kind of facebook group called 'the uninvited' for the others to join.

FruOla Fri 16-Aug-13 23:20:07

Tidy. Thank you! Words fail me shock grin shock grin shock grin

Isabeller Fri 16-Aug-13 23:22:37

Poor woman. I hope her big day isn't completely ruined even though she is the author, publisher and Charles Saatchi of her own destruction.

Think Tidy should organise a special dinner for 'the uninvited' (with a theme...)

Still18atheart Fri 16-Aug-13 23:25:42

Thanks for the update have some more wine

I like the suggestion hunfriend made about gluezilla getting a wedding planner.

I bloody love the "charles saatchi of her own destruction"

I am going to try to use that as much as possible

FruOla Fri 16-Aug-13 23:34:09

Having slightly calmed down from laughing so much at the latest update, when is the wedding? Tomorrow or next Saturday? She hasn't got much time left, has she? grin

zipzap Fri 16-Aug-13 23:36:42

Great update. But kind of a shame that hunfriend didn't know a bit more of the history so that when gluezilla said about being let down at the last minute she could have said that she'd heard that gluezilla also asked Tidy at the last minute and so is guessing that she is working her way through her not-good-enough-to-attend-the-wedding friend's and find out who she had originally asked.

I'm sure that Tidy probably was the original ask but it would have been fun to hear about gluezilla stuttering and trying to explain her way out of that one!

Mimishimi Fri 16-Aug-13 23:44:04

Why didn't just GZ hire decorators like most brides? Sure, some brides make much of the fact that they and their friends did all the decorations but the difference being that they all plan it months in advance together and do it the week/day before together. She should have at least called decorators the moment Tidy made her position clear she would not be helping. Bet your friend is so glad she's going to Paris.

TidyDancer Sat 17-Aug-13 00:22:12

I have just guffawed through most of these posts! Thank you all so much for staying with me through this! You are all awesome! (So awesome that I had to reply now having only got out of bed to go to the toilet!).

I do know people who are actually permitted to attend the event of the year. I may be able to update with how it goes on the day!

"Charles Saatchi of her own destruction" might be one of the best comments ever! grin

I'm not sure who else is on the uninvited list so I'm not sure I can find out if any of them were also asked. I know a lot of people who are likely to have been invited/uninvited so I may well find out at some point in the future.

I'll be back home late tomorrow, but will update if there is anything interesting when I have an Internet connection!

Once again, you are all bloody wonderful! grin

Thumbwitch Sat 17-Aug-13 00:55:27

Oh PMSL at "badly let down at the last minute" - HAHAHAHAHA!! well that's what happens when you don't invite people but just expect them to do a shitload of work for you for free and don't even discuss it with them properly! not that you would have agreed even if she discussed it properly, but seriously?!

I like hunfriend. I hope she gave it to Gluezilla good and proper. grin

ZingWantsCake Sat 17-Aug-13 01:59:06

Tidy

when is the wedding day?

I've just read part 1, trying to catch up you see..

MintyChops Sat 17-Aug-13 04:28:22

Bwahahahaha!!!! Gluezilla may be frantically cutting and pasting tacky 50's crap as I type, sniffing like mad to get another hit to keep her going!!!! Thanks for the update Tidy, also love the Charles Saatchi comment.

Cerisier Sat 17-Aug-13 04:39:52

OMG can't believe she is working her way through the uninvited. As others are saying, why didn't she budget for the decorating in the first place and get on with sorting it out weeks ago if she was let down?

GZ's lack of EQ is astounding!

ZingWantsCake Sat 17-Aug-13 05:39:47

if I understand the situation correctly Gluezilla is singing in her head :

"20 uninviteds sitting on the wall,
20 uninviteds sitting on the wall
and if one uninvited should swear to do fuck all,
there are 19 uninviteds still sitting on the wall!"

grin

Morgause Sat 17-Aug-13 06:18:26

Maybe "uninvited" should cluster together outside the church wearing wedding finery and chant, "We saved the day!"

Then collect outside the reception room and gawp sadly through the windows eating sad little sandwiches and nocake.

LadyMilfordHaven Sat 17-Aug-13 07:13:34

Lol at STD cards. I cba to scroll. What's the decoration?

FruOla Sat 17-Aug-13 08:02:25

I think that Patchouli has hit the nail on the head with "Glue's had it in her head that you'll be doing the decorating for much longer than you've known about." She probably even had it on her planning list months ago, even after she disinvited you - Decorations, Tidy, Tick.

Thumbwitch Sat 17-Aug-13 08:15:25

Decoration = 50s/60s Hollywood. So not exactly the glamour era then. Possibly the Austin Powers style... grin

Tidy, you have brought meaning to my life.

Ive been lurking on this thread forever now, funny as hell. Someone mentioned guests coming in Godzilla outfits & that one just floored me..hahahahaha...I also cant get my head round a Sylvanian wedding theme?! I do hope Gluey goes all out on her gaudy tat theme tho & Tidy knows someone who can go & film/take pics of some of the reception then stick the link up on here..I fancy another good laugh grin

Oh it worth getting up this morning for this alone.
Am open mouthed at the gall of GZ.
I vote for all the disenfranchised (ie STD losers) to flashmob the wedding in zombie outfits.

Euphemia Sat 17-Aug-13 09:18:09

Has Tidy updated?

DidoTheDodo Sat 17-Aug-13 09:19:04

tidy, is it wrong of me to want to know the exact date, time and address of GZ's bunfest. Not so I can go along and gawp, of course?

prettybird Sat 17-Aug-13 09:34:18

Main update at 20:53 last night.

Essentially GZ has supposedly been let down "at the last minute" hmm and is very upset, asking "why doesn't anyone want to help me?". Fortunately Hunfriend, who now knows all, had to decline wink the kind offer to "help" as she would be in Paris that weekend. Instead she suggested engaging a proper wedding planner.

FruOla Sat 17-Aug-13 09:51:36

I'm still wondering where GlueParents are in all of this? Presumably Glue hasn't told them anything and has also sworn GlueSis to secrecy. Otherwise GlueParents would have stepped in ages ago and told her to shape up, stop pestering uninvited friends and perhaps help her find another way of decorating - or be less ambitious with her decorating ideas.

I mean, I can't imagine any parent sitting by the sidelines watching their daughter self-destruct over some extremely ill thought out wedding plans.

SunnyIntervals Sat 17-Aug-13 09:52:27

Maybe parents are the same? She may get it from them?!

FruOla Sat 17-Aug-13 09:55:11

Possibly, but in that case I could imagine that GlueMum would also have been emailing Tidy and Hunfriend grin

chateauferret Sat 17-Aug-13 10:04:36

Obviously even though you can't go etiquette demands that the Uninvited send the bride and groom a message to be read out by the best man (another poor sod who probably knows nothing of all this) after his speech. How about:

This wedding is utterly shite
Because you thought that you had the right
To get people like me
Working for you for free
When we weren't good enough to invite.

Inertia Sat 17-Aug-13 10:06:44

I'm wondering whether the rest of the uninvited are photographers, florists, harpists etc , and gluezilla has now realised that her plan to dupe her friends into providing services for free has backfired...

prettybird Sat 17-Aug-13 10:17:07

The really sad thing in all of this is that most people understand that choices have to made in determining the invitees overlooking the faux pas of the STD cards - and, if GZ were a true friend, who saw these people regularly, may well have volunteered to help a bit

What is inconsiensably RUDE is expecting people to do do. The clue is in the word "volunteer". grin

prettybird Sat 17-Aug-13 10:17:50

"to do so " blush

ZingWantsCake Sat 17-Aug-13 11:12:23

I'd love the priest to ask her on the they:
"Gluezilla, will you take GlueGroom to be your lawful wedded husband - and btw are you high on glue?"

GZ: "I DO" ! grin grin grin grin

ZingWantsCake Sat 17-Aug-13 11:13:42

why thank you Mistress !wink

SarahAndFuck Sat 17-Aug-13 11:14:36

What did Hunfriend say when you told her you were the one who "badly let Gluezilla down at the last minute?"

I can't believe the cheek of her saying that. You weren't even ordered to asked to help until the last minute, yet she makes it sound like you had it all agreed somewhere other than only inside her own head for ages and that you backed out.

tinypumpkin Sat 17-Aug-13 11:17:25

Zing, I think gluezilla should respond with 'I glue' rather than 'I do'.

What about 'to stick together from this day forward, for better, for worse...' ?

Can we get sylvanians in there somewhere too?

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 17-Aug-13 12:49:35

yah - you know people who are going tidy smile - sorry didnt mean to rub it in

we obv want all details, down to what gz dress was like, her food and then hall decorations - ideally a pic of them would be nice if you can bribe ask a guest nicely grin

pigletmania Sat 17-Aug-13 13:24:59

So all the not god enoughs to invite, should have to give up their precious time and alter arrangements so that they can help Mrs Meeeee. Is her hide thicker tan a Rhinos

I know Rusty, she should be known as Rhinozilla as her hides thicker than. rhinos

pigletmania Sat 17-Aug-13 13:45:03

Instead of keeping a low profile to Thse not invited, she expects them to help her, so the experience will be wonderful for those she invited. Talk about treating people like shit, screwing them over an wanting them to help her after all that shock.

pigletmania Sat 17-Aug-13 13:46:06

Tidy she is no friend, true friends just don't do that. Rhinozilla should be her name

Groovee Sat 17-Aug-13 13:48:30

Gluezilla is hilarious, a big medical person who is as thick as mince and doesn't get why people her friends won't come and help.

ZingWantsCake Sat 17-Aug-13 14:03:29

I can see a Charity Organization called "Uninviteds Anonymous" forming soon.
It would aid all innocent victims stung by GlueZillas and BrideZilla worldwide.

There would be meetings held with much cake & wineand Tidy and Tantrums would be invited as keynote speakers.

grin

onedev Sat 17-Aug-13 14:48:29

I'm still stunned at the nerve of her - seriously, who thinks that's ok?? Surely her sister / mum / DH to be / anyone would have told her that her behaviour is not acceptable?? Especially if she used to be 'normal'?? Flabbergasted!

RooRooTaToot Sat 17-Aug-13 16:34:00

And maybe a Glueaid concert and charity single:

It's Wedding time
There's a need to be afraid
At Christmas time
We let in Sylvanians and we banish friends

And in Glue's world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Come decorate my world
At Wedding time

...

farrowandbawl Sat 17-Aug-13 17:41:44

..but say a prayer
pray for the uninvited
at wedding time, it's hard
but if I've saved the date..

There's a world outside her window
it's a world full of glue
where the only glue that's flowing
is gluezillas tears of fear

and the wedding bells that ring there
are the clanging chimes of doom
well, tonight thank god it's them
and you're not thereeeee...

and there wont be themes of hollywood in this venue
the greatest gift they'll get this year is HIGH
where no one ever helps, no calls or texts are sent
does she know what manners are at all?

...let me know
if I'm in-vi-i-ted
here's to them
the one who'll see it all
Do they know that hassle of it all?

farrowandbawl Sat 17-Aug-13 19:41:55

(Sung to A Few Of My Favorite Things)

Teardrops on sisters and emails and hunning,
revoking invites and misunderstandings
never quite knowing what I have done wrong
this is all part of the gluezilla song.

Hollywood themes with no notice or decor
posing for photos, red carpets and paps
20 uninvited and refusing to help
this is all part of my wanting to yelp

I'm so amazing and perfect and special
you should be begging me to be around
You're not invited but still want to use
your expert opinion and my only muse

It's my wedding
you should be glad to
do everything I ask
I am gluezilla and I'm so upset
and you should be feeling
sooooo baaaad.

pigletmania Sat 17-Aug-13 19:48:56

I have never in my life come across such nonsense from a bride, I really hope that I was not a gluezilla, I bloody hope not! I never ad STD cards and just invited nearest and dearest. I drifted apart a bit from an old friend that I knew from school but still stayed in touch, I invited her because she s one of my oldest friends. I only had one meal, and no evening do

pigletmania Sat 17-Aug-13 19:49:56

What was hunfriend's response to finding out you were the terrible person who had let Gluezilla down?

JustCallMeMaam Sat 17-Aug-13 23:51:01

Shameless place marking!

Am I right in thinking gluezilla is a doctor? Heaven help her patients!

farrowandbawl Sun 18-Aug-13 04:28:08

Gluezilla's a doctor? What the hell?

Notafoodbabyanymore Sun 18-Aug-13 05:49:30

Actually can't believe her! "Why doesn't anyone want to help me?" Ummm... because you're a cowbag and a selfish bitch, maybe? Hth.

MrsEdinburgh Sun 18-Aug-13 05:49:44

Everytime I look at my daughters Sylvanians I think "Glue" smile

JustCallMeMaam Sun 18-Aug-13 09:54:02

Sure I remember Tidy saying she was a published medical professional - I took that to mean doctor??

meditrina Sun 18-Aug-13 09:56:46

Is Tidy the terrible person who let Gluezie down, though?

Or perhaps someone else did, just before she mentioned decorating for the first time? Hence her (odd?) last-minute request for help to Tidy? And then to anyone/everyone else?

forumdonkey Sun 18-Aug-13 10:20:29

grin I've followed this thread from the beginning and just when I think that's it, Gluezilla strikes again with another classic - love it! grin

Pachacuti Sun 18-Aug-13 10:47:38

Mmm, meditrina, but in spite of telling everyone else that she's been let down over decorating when she's trying to get their help/support that's not something she said to Tidy when asking her to help - which suggests she sees Tidy as the down-letter.

notapizzaeater Sun 18-Aug-13 11:02:40

So pleased glue... Is a medical person. As I m attending a wedding next week and the bride is currently a little bit loopy !!! But perfectly normal compared to these ...

NorfolkIngWay Sun 18-Aug-13 11:07:48

Weeping at "I GLUE" grin

Do you Gluezilla take Gluegroom to be your lawfully wedded husband and promise to stick together until death do you part ? grin

KeatsiePie Sun 18-Aug-13 11:12:25

MrsKoala this "something borrowed something ...' and i shouted GLUE at which point i laughed like a drain and DH seriously considered leaving me." made me laugh like another drain.

And, "badly let down"! Assuming she means Tidy, that's quite a little rewrite of history the bride has done.

TidyDancer Sun 18-Aug-13 12:51:34

Gluezilla isn't a doctor. It's more on the research side of things.

Hunfriend and I agreed that it probably was me that had let gluezilla down (haha) but that we couldn't be sure she wasn't referring to a collective let down from others. May not know for a while until I see others whether they were also approached to help. She was shocked she hadn't been the only one though.

farrowandbawl Sun 18-Aug-13 12:53:57

Thank god she's not a doctor.

Maybe she can do more research on the effects of sniffing glue.

MummyBeerest Sun 18-Aug-13 15:25:02

Is your friend also a decorator? Or is she just asking anyone she knows who isn't invited to the wedding?

She just sounds more and more ridiculous!

SilverOldie Sun 18-Aug-13 15:25:21

Does anyone feel a bit sorry for Gluegroom? I would be having second thoughts if I were him.

Tidy, I know you don't want to give us the date of the gluewedding but could you give a rough indication, if its like in the next month or so? If its more than a month, I can see you having to start many more threads.

from an earlier tidy post I was left under the impression its this weekend (though possibly next weekend).

Notafoodbabyanymore Sun 18-Aug-13 16:08:40

MrsKoala that made me piss myself laughing too. How good is "something old, something new, something borrowed and something glue" !?

Great stuff!

WherewasHonahLee Sun 18-Aug-13 16:38:37

I assumed The Glue Wedding was today. I hadn't banked on another another week of the gluey saga. Tidy you will let us know when it's all over and we can come out from behind the sofa won't you?

ElephantsEye Sun 18-Aug-13 16:40:03

Do you think this photo was GZ's inspiration?

bootsycollins Sun 18-Aug-13 16:41:28

There's enough material here to produce "Glue" the musical grin

Next weekend is a bank holiday in England (not Scotland) so it's a prime time for weddings. Tidy at one point said it was August and there's only one August weekend left...

<deerstalker>

SilverOldie Sun 18-Aug-13 17:19:03

Ah sorry I must have missed that. I think the squirrel and owl look would fit in so well with a 50s/60s Hollywood theme grin, combined with the bridal party being chased by a dinosaur for a photograph!

farrowandbawl Sun 18-Aug-13 17:19:17

Does anyone else think that this drama has the potential to go on for months?

Gluezilla is striking me as the type of person to continue playing the victim for along while yet.

EmmaGellerGreen Sun 18-Aug-13 18:12:39

Of course, there is a Gluegroom! I have just realised that too! What is he like? Wonder if he knows about the glue-tendencies of his beloved and her family........

prettybird Sun 18-Aug-13 18:37:28

Look what I found: a Facebook page dedicated to 50s weddings! grin

She's even looking for real life wedding stories! wink

FruOla Sun 18-Aug-13 18:38:28

GlueGroom has probably had his hands held against his ears, singing "lalalalalala, I can't hear you" for the last godknowshowmany months.

Anyone else looking forward to when she has a baby!

SkivingAgain Sun 18-Aug-13 18:55:00

I may have missed it, but was Hunfriend also asked to help with the decorating?

Yes, Skiving. Fortunately she had the presence of mind to say "I will be away. I suggest you get a professional" or words to that effect.

I can't help wondering just when the penny will drop with GZ. I almost feel sorry for her because once she's back to normal she is going to be completely mortified about how she behaved in all this. I am cringing on her behalf.

I was deliberately vague/deceptive in the beginning about the wedding date (sorry!) because at that stage I wasn't quite anticipating where and how far this thread would go! I figured I had some change at anonymity, but now the wedding date isn't going to be what outs me! Since the has been a riot, I no longer care if I am outed! grin

The wedding is next weekend. smile

Mr Gluezilla to be is a teacher. I have no idea what he feels unfortunately!
