Not even if I want to swap my house for a mansion?

SecretNutellaFix Mon 08-Oct-12 23:09:20

<marks territory>


ChristmasKate Mon 08-Oct-12 23:10:12

So nyer, right back atcha.

NewStartSameStory Mon 08-Oct-12 23:10:55

See this is why you should never tell if you find a secret topic. grin wonder what happened to the other 31 threads that the topics list believes hid in here... hmm

FrussoStickymoreBonks Mon 08-Oct-12 23:11:31

Isn't that just tempting the rebels?

MaryZed Mon 08-Oct-12 23:13:17

Oi, get out. This is mine, all mine I tell ya shock

Well, NewStart can come in if she wants, I spose, since she found it.

CuttedUpPear Mon 08-Oct-12 23:13:42

I want to swap my house and life
Can I do it here? It's in a forest.

MaryZed Mon 08-Oct-12 23:14:28

And for heaven's sake, shhhhhhh.

Or Olivia will find us.

HoneyDragon Mon 08-Oct-12 23:15:03

Are you lot doing this to get me into frickin' trouble AGAIN?

<<fetches recently discarded weasel suit>>

NewStartSameStory Mon 08-Oct-12 23:15:44

assumes Mary is ignoring the big fat link on the other thread

NewStartSameStory Mon 08-Oct-12 23:16:27

<looks shifty>
Oh shit

MaryZed Mon 08-Oct-12 23:17:42


Olivia, Honey made me do it, honest miss [pleading] [innocent]

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Mon 08-Oct-12 23:26:04

Can I join in? I missed the raid on HQ! I always miss out on everything! sad

<<throws Arts&Crafts semi-det onto table>>

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Mon 08-Oct-12 23:28:22

Is this really not an actual topic? Did I dream the MN ad with two improbably lovely villas on it and a double headed arrow saying House Swap?

MaryZed Mon 08-Oct-12 23:31:29

There is another HouseSwap topic, apparently, for the swapping of houses. NewStart knows all about it, she will direct you there.

I simply want somewhere to talk shite and have everyone agree with me.

If you are happy to agree with me, you are all very welcome grin

Special welcome to Saggy smile who always makes me think of my Granny reading me Bagpuss stories.

NewStartSameStory Mon 08-Oct-12 23:31:34

You mean this topic Doctrine.

MaryZed Mon 08-Oct-12 23:32:28

Thank you NewStart, bang on cue grin

< proffers yet more wine and Bombay Sapphire, accompanied by nibbles>

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Mon 08-Oct-12 23:36:05

So, what are we going to do here in this strange new world?

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Mon 08-Oct-12 23:36:44

So Tech made two topics with the same title? shock

Wouldn't want to be in The Shed tonight.

MaryZed Mon 08-Oct-12 23:36:46

You are going to agree with me, of course smile. I will come up with a list of acceptable topics and opinions tomorrow for anyone silly enough to still be here

NewStartSameStory Mon 08-Oct-12 23:38:08

Only in the topics list. It actually happens a lot. One is a complete topic and one is a sub topic. This lovely topic has missing threads. And I really want to know their titles


No one want my house?


NSSSSSS, did you used to be someone esle?

<<narrows eyes>>

NewStartSameStory Mon 08-Oct-12 23:42:44

Now Chaos, lovely, we have discussed this before. And yes I have been many people.

MaryZed Mon 08-Oct-12 23:46:32

See, I also want to know who you are/were. Because I probably liked you then too.

There are loads of new names around atm that I'm sure I know, I just can't work it out <sobs> I like to know things, I do hmm.

NewStartSameStory Mon 08-Oct-12 23:50:29

I have agreed with you in the past and bumped into with this name before. And the one that lead to this. We were on a thread together in Dadsnet not so long ago Mary. I tend to lurk mostly these days.

MaryZed Mon 08-Oct-12 23:58:02

Just shows how unobservant I am blush.

Was that the really weird one where MrGin was banned. I never discovered what that was all about - it was very strange, but I presume there was some sort of back story.

I liked MrGin.

NewStartSameStory Tue 09-Oct-12 00:00:09

Yes it was indeed.

TuftyFinch Tue 09-Oct-12 00:04:30

I van post my shopping list here? So that I remember?
Shopping list;

TuftyFinch Tue 09-Oct-12 00:05:09

NewStart are you he?

MaryZed Tue 09-Oct-12 00:05:34

I think that was one of the weirdest threads I've ever been on. And I don't think I've seen MrGin since, and Pan posted much less afterwards, as did Tiggy sad

I never understood the whole feminist hoo-ha either, I sort of thought it would all die down, but it seems if you aren't with them you are against them, or something.

I get splinters thinking about feminism. A bit like my Baptist next door neighbour he is a very nice person, he believes what he believes, he is good to everyone, he has the best of intentions, but to be honest his very earnestness drives me bonkers. And makes me want to jump up and down and yell "the bible is made up, you know" [baffled]

<takes advantage of own topic to spout shite>

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Tue 09-Oct-12 00:06:01

Oh your MaryZed !

Is that my fault because if the zzzzzzzz? grin

MrGin got banned? shock

MaryZed Tue 09-Oct-12 00:06:10

Tufty, that should be:

Nice food

Lots of wine

MaryZed Tue 09-Oct-12 00:07:01

Oh, for heaven's sake Bonkey, catch up.

I changed my name specifically for you. Don't tell me you didn't even notice. ffs [sigh]

MrsVamoOOOOOs Tue 09-Oct-12 00:07:26

Where's this come from then ?

Got any naice pics, Maryz ? grin

MaryZed Tue 09-Oct-12 00:08:32

just for you MrsVamos grin

TuftyFinch Tue 09-Oct-12 00:09:15

Or maybe just wine really. We've got some pasta I'm sure.

NewStartSameStory Tue 09-Oct-12 00:10:06

Mary - <nods> I hear you. It was the weirdest thing I have encountered especially as I had missed all the hooha and it seemed to appear out of nowhere as a result

Tufty -Me? He? Err no. I am not one of the banned people. I am doing a terrible job of mostly lurking.

MaryZed Tue 09-Oct-12 00:11:13

Yars, Tufty smile - get those priorities right. Wo man cannot live by bread alone and all that, we need wine

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Tue 09-Oct-12 00:12:15

I ain't bin around much lately .

Mystery be a better MNetter !

MummifiedBonkeyMollocks Tue 09-Oct-12 00:13:09

*must be!! hmm

Anyone want a phone with a mind if its own?

I miss the good old brick days !

MrsVamoOOOOOs Tue 09-Oct-12 00:15:29

Oh my goodness, Maryz. <fans self>

Where do you find them all ?

You clearly spend as much time googling images as I do...wink

FriggFRIGGORIFIC Tue 09-Oct-12 00:59:42

I killed the last one and I'll probs kill this one too

So there ner

<raises sword>

MaryZed Tue 09-Oct-12 01:00:20

<waves to Frigg>

Just to save you from mass murder.

I'm off to bed though, so you can kill it again if you like smile

FriggFRIGGORIFIC Tue 09-Oct-12 01:03:03

<drops sword>

Ooooh 'ello!! grin

ripsishere Tue 09-Oct-12 01:38:35

Was that a 'oooooh 'ello' like my DD does (in the way of the campiest of camp men?) or another way.
Can I come into your privvy MaryZed?
I missed all the shenanigans. I didn't even know MrGin was banned. I rather like him too.
My house swap would be my 19th floor flat guarded by the gaudiest guards in Malaysia for the one I can see when I look out of the window.
Lovely detached villa with a moat like swimming pool. That'd do me.

ripsishere Tue 09-Oct-12 01:38:54

Not gaudiest, they are in no way gaudy. Guardiest.

MaryZed Tue 09-Oct-12 08:52:33

Good morning all <waves to Rip> I am going to potter away happily here for the day, where I can talk to myself and everyone else (i.e. me) can agree with me.


FriggFRIGGORIFIC Tue 09-Oct-12 09:48:24

It was a bit camp,yes.

I now have an image of a gaudy guard standing outside your front door Rip I'll see that every time I see your name now....

NewStartSameStory Tue 09-Oct-12 11:52:04

Afternoon Mary.

MaryZed Tue 09-Oct-12 12:14:57

Afternoon NewStart smile

Now, where should I post today?

HoneyDragon Tue 09-Oct-12 12:49:39

<<sneaks in>>

<<Decorates Maryz topic in Pleather and Twiggy Shit>>

MaryZed Tue 09-Oct-12 14:36:56

<hoovers up twiggy bits from all over the floor>

<pulls up comfy sofa, pillows and slanket>

<opens book (stolen from dd) and settles down for the afternoon>

WidescreenGoat Tue 09-Oct-12 14:39:14

When/why/how did MrGin get banned???

MaryZed Tue 09-Oct-12 15:27:26

In fact, looking at the multiplying Christmas threads on aibu, I'm going to stay here until December.

There was a thread in dadsnet that went weird Widescreen, MrGin got banned and I haven't seen him since. Personally, I didn't see anything wrong in any of his posts, but obviously someone did [baffled]

NewStartSameStory Tue 09-Oct-12 16:16:28

The word goading was used iirc. Didn't see it myself but <shrug>

Will have a look later Mary I have to take ds to burn some attitude off before he is grounded to an inch of MY sanity

MaryZed Tue 09-Oct-12 17:26:01

I suspect that there was a massive backstory that went completely over my head grin
