Love love love this thread, kept me entertained for a whole hour at work!

Grant is an electrician who has been quite busy of late, going around fixing problems created by Lynne the Lesbian Electrician. He likes going to the pub for "early doors" and is on the darts team. He is married to Rosslyn who owns a boutique selling clothes for "mature" women, and is estranged from her weathy family for marrying a bit of rough at 21 when she got her trust fund money. They have two children - Tony and Heather.

Tony is also an electician and plays darts with his dad. Heather is a doctor's receptionist and wears bobbly tights.

My name is very close to Linda. I have just got a new job as an admin in the local hospital grin.

PMSL I am wearing an old pair of birkenstocks today but DH is not wearing flip flops because I confiscated them!

Francis lives in a big house. He is in his 40s and quite attractive in a sort of Bohemian way, and wears corduroy and velvet a lot. No-one has a clue what he does for a living, although rumours occasionally circulate.

Frank is a traditional pub landlord.

Fran is a rather daft boy who is training to be a pilot. He has flying lessons in a Cessna at the weekends, with Graeme the flight instructor. Graeme knows that Fran will never get his head around instrument flying, but hasn't the heart to tell him. Graeme is ex-RAF and once harboured hopes of becoming the first British astronaut.

Bunty's husband died 20 years ago, she has never remarried and likes to lunch at the local polo club with her friends Jinty and Vivien. She draws her eyebrows in thickly with pencil.

John manages a local newsagents. He calls the saturday girls 'luv' and stares at their boobs. He is nice enough, but he and his back room always smells of egg sandwiches.

He is strict but fatherly with the paper boys. He likes to give lollipops to the little kids bought in in pushchairs. All the mothers think it is very sweet, except Anna who plasters on a rictus grin when she comes in for the Independent on Sunday and Green Parent, with baby Clementine in a sling, and as soon as she is out of the door whips the lolly out of the hands of Arlo who at 3.5 has never tasted refined sugar.

Alan the area manager comes to visit the newsagent once a month. He wears nice suits from Marks and Spencer, and only wears shirts that require cufflinks. He has 32 pairs, including funky 'groom' ones, and Crystal Palaces ones. He wishes he worked in the city instead of in Slough's 'Sweeties'HQ.

Sarah and Lee work behind the counter of Sweeties at the weekend, and when the shop is quiet they snog behind the counter, and both quick like being caught in the act. Lee wants to act, and sometimes works as a TV extra. Sarah likes Massive Attack because Lee does.

Sweeties will become a Tesco Metro in 6 months time.

Tanya and she works for BT.

Me too smile

Dillon - is a sound engineer, he has to suffer giving tutorials at the FE college to make ends meet - his girlfriend works in TV, she's having an affair

Dylan - smells a bit and hasn't washed his hair for 7 weeks, he plays guitar (badly) and sponges dope off his more talented mates. He hasn't got a girlfriend, he suffers from depression.

God, I so miss cod when I read threads like this!

Funny how every office department I've worked in seems to have a Chris, (female), a Bev + a Sue!

If your name is Emma and you have a boyfriend, you only want to socialise by doing "couple things". If you're single you will only go on girls night out and get in a huff if there are any couples within a one mile radius. You are usually blond, but sometimes try brunette for a few weeks before getting your highlights re-done

Olivia - cute child, gets into drugs in a big way from mid teens. Likes scruffy men

John - sensible. Dependable. Dull. People avoid him

Oliver - bullied a lot at school but does quite well in later life

Matt - has a home gym and unused mountaineering equipment

almummy Mon 17-Nov-08 13:21:26

Dom works in television. Mummy, Daddy and married sisters Lavinia and Thomasina all live in Surrey. Dom went to public school where he was bullied mercilessly, though in his mind they were actually his friends. As they grew up his mates always pulled the birds so when Natalie came to work at his office and showed interest in him he couldn't believe it. Mummy, Daddy, Lavinia and Thomasina do not like Natalie - she is "no good" for Dom.

Now Dom and Natalie have an eight year old daughter who they drag around gastro pubs with them while out for "meals". They usually manage to consume two bottles of wine per "meal". Dom looks much older than he used to and has no money left, though he ignores this fact while racking up more and more credit card debt entertaining Natalie and making sure she does not leave him.

I know this is an old thread, but it's the funniest thing ever and I'm dying to contribute now!

Janine shoplifts.

Jake is a recovered drug addict who has been through rehab and an extensive programme of therapy. This has made him a little wearing to be around. He met his wife, Helena, at a therapy group, and now works in interior design with a friend. Helena is a slightly dappy youth worker - she got the job because she has escaped having an actual criminal record, coming from a wealthy background which meant she did not have to steal things to buy her drugs.
Jake and Helena now vigorously eschew anything addictive. At their wedding, at which Jake cried all the way through, no-one was even allowed champagne. Sadie, Jake's mother, secretly thinks that he was easier to deal with when he was a smack-and-coke-addled advertising executive. She worries that he will get into evangelical Christianity.
His sister, Ruth, is a Conservative local councillor and has disowned him, but more because she thinks his tattoos and oddly-coloured hair are a bad influence on her children.

Jodi is a Veterinary Nursing student. She was not over-bright at school, but was encouraged by someone like Helena to do her course because she LOVES animals and wants to help them. She is surprisingly good at the anatomy bit and is one of the most popular girls in her group, with the other students and her teachers. Sadly, the first time she witnesses a cat being put to sleep whilst on a placement, she goes to pieces and does not return to her studies. Eventually, she opens her own poodle parlour.

Emily-Jane is a trainee estate agent.
She is 19.
She is bright and pretty, and has nice nails.
She has a lovely telephone voice.

She is love with Neil, who is a fully-fledged estate agent.
He has his own car and his own flat.
And his own clipboard.
He has shiny shoes - and a shiny suit.
He is less than tall - an aspect for which he overcompensates by wearing heeled boots, even in Summer.
Neil is too much in love with himself to have a relationship with anyone else.

Emily-Jane thinks she will work with Neil forever.
She won't.
But it will take her about three years to realise he is a total nob.

Moira wears Poison, by Dior. She knows it adds to her "presence" in a room full of strangers.

BearMama Tue 18-Mar-08 23:54:45

Moira works for a market research company. She has neat blonde bobbed hair, wears suits that are ten years old and flowery blouses.

She is used to addressing roomfuls of people in anonymous hotel conference suites where she goes through questions one by one and is proud of her methodical approach.

She is quite territorial of her overhead projector and secretly longs to run her own Weight Watchers support group.

moodlumthehoodlum Tue 18-Mar-08 21:19:39

Troy has had the full body electrolysis now, but the stripping still has some allure for him, so he's sticking with it, until something better comes along.

Rosie has changed. She dabbled in evangelical christianity but knew, long term it wasn't for her. She is dabbling in becoming a goth, and wants to change her name to siouxsie.

Quattrocento Tue 18-Mar-08 21:15:45

Sarah teaches primary school. She dyes her hair surreptitiously (and badly) at home. The ethnic clothes and beads have turned into things that resemble suits. She will never see a size 12 again.
