Took the liberty of starting a new thread. blush

Off you go ladies and gents...

Yogagirl17 Sat 17-Nov-12 17:48:30

Oh you beat me to it - I was just about to do "Twirling body builders and giraffes in wheelchairs!!!!!! - Dating thread number 29" (the extra !!!! should really have been in the last one)

So I just had a message on OK from a guy who
a) is in Las Vegas
b) calls himself "Big Edwin"
c) told me to have a "beautiful moment" hmm

snapespeare Sat 17-Nov-12 17:48:37

Place marking with a triumphant charity shop return, m&s black dress for work £5, per una denim skirt a fiver and <whispers> boden jeans. A fiver.

This is more interesting than my sex life.

Yogagirl17 Sat 17-Nov-12 17:51:20

Ooh, I would temporarily give up having a sex life to get a black dress & a pair of good jeans for a tenner.

So do I have to tell the Engineer NOW or can I wait until he suggests date no 3 before I break it to him?

Milkandlotsandlotsofwine Sat 17-Nov-12 17:52:52

Yoga I'm so sorry. We can save "Giraffes in wheelchairs" for the next one. We may get shot by the PC police though! grin

Have you decided what your "beautiful moment" is going to consist of yet.

snape That is an amazing haul. I never find anything good in the charity shops in Camden. All the cool people always beat me to it. In fact, it was probably you!

hatesponge Sat 17-Nov-12 17:59:13

I never find anything in charity shops - am much more successful at bootsales on the rare occasions I manage to get up early enough

Having a bit of a meh day today. Off to do some shopping and buy chocolate, CBA with diet in my current mood!

snapespeare Sat 17-Nov-12 17:59:44

I was in the people's republic of beckenham. East Dulwich charity shops are meant to be fab, but overpriced. I saw a pair of m&s boots today, half a size too small and they wanted THIRTY FIVE QUID FOR THEM.

Oh. Someone I 'liked' ages ago on OKC 'liked' me. blush he is bald and has a beard and looks a tiny bit like add edmondson (who I've always had a huge crush on.)

snapespeare Sat 17-Nov-12 18:02:20

sponge chocolate! Excellent call! Slightly envious of your quiz triumph, I love a good pub quiz. :-)

Yogagirl17 Sat 17-Nov-12 18:05:09

Right, I'm off out with DD for the evening and have unhidden on POF again - figure it will provide some entertainment when I get home! (And if not I can always have a "beautiful moment" on my own!! grin)

mercury7 Sat 17-Nov-12 18:08:14

I have way too much stuff as it is, last thing I need is charity shop findsgrin

OhWesternWind Sat 17-Nov-12 18:08:31

I am going to have pizza, curly fries and a rum and coke. Classy bird, me. In mitigation, children chose the first two items and I chose the third. Cheers m'dears!

MacAndCheese Sat 17-Nov-12 18:12:12

Checking in to the new thread.

bantamrooster Sat 17-Nov-12 18:16:15

Evening all. My first foray into POF has met with weird results. I'll elaborate later. And I have a date with a police officer, no word from Venezuela though.

OneMoreGo Sat 17-Nov-12 18:18:04

Checking in and then re-lurking. God I miss London charity shops. Cornish ones are beyond awful...

Scattylatte Sat 17-Nov-12 18:19:32

Mercury. Yes I think I'll take your advice. I'll concentrate only on the physical attributes of the body builder and nothing else. I'll dump the dull one as I can't face another evening of local orientated conversation.

I was feeling good earlier but my friend has just said she can't go out tonight. I don't know why I'm feeling flat as I've got a busy week ahead and lots to do.

I keep periodically missing my ex even though I'm pretty sure I'm seeing the relationship through rose coloured specs. When I was with him I never actually felt that happy, and when I was with him and his friends I didn't feel overjoyed either.

Snape, marvellous buys. I've had some good purchase from charity shops. A russell and Bromley bag for 15 quid was one recent buy.

Milkandlotsandlotsofwine Sat 17-Nov-12 18:20:52

sponge I am having a CBA day as well. This is partly down to the fact I have a grotty cold & partly due to the fact that it is coming up to a year since my ex-fiancée walked out of my life never to be seen or spoken to again. Also a small part is owing to the fact that my faith in love has been destroyed by every other man I've met since also turning out to be a using fuckmuppet.

I have ordered Deliverance takeaway. Peri Peri chicken, ratatouille and BBQ ribs. Also looking forward to drooling over Colin Morgan in Merlin a bit later on.blush

Scattylatte Sat 17-Nov-12 18:23:55

For dinner I ate a full buffet at a wedding. It wasn't an English wedding and I'm totally stuffed with noodles, meat, chicken and other stuff.
Whats everyone doing tonight?

Scattylatte Sat 17-Nov-12 18:25:01

Milk, that's awful. Did he just walk out?

lubeybooby England Sat 17-Nov-12 18:25:06

Oooh new thread, hello all <marks place>

Milkandlotsandlotsofwine Sat 17-Nov-12 18:25:48

Just to add to my joy I have received an OKC message from a man stating he is "Ethically non-monogamous"hmm

I get a lot of these types mailing me. Is Polyamory on the rise or am I just VERY unlucky?

hatesponge Sat 17-Nov-12 18:27:54

This wasn't pub, but evil grammar school (which DS1 failed the exam for by 1 sodding mark, condemning him to crap school hell...4 years on and I'm not at all bitter about it...!) quiz.

I didn't win, though I answered 90% of the questions for our team blush. Most of the teams were made up of utterly unattractive men.

It was one of those nights though where I thought I'm bloody attractive, look great (last nights combo was black suede platform boots and skinny jeans), and I'm good at quizzes. Yet men either have no interest in me at all, or none that extends beyond one encounter. Can't but wonder why.

The supermarket beckons. Will return later once i have trekked the 3 mile round trip to the supermarket and I have food!

Milkandlotsandlotsofwine Sat 17-Nov-12 18:30:34

scatty No, I'm painting myself as a bit more of a poor me victim than I really amif I'm honest. I moved away to London to work, on the basis that in his words, "It will do us good to have some space." Then after 6 months of him coming down to visit me (mainly funded by me) I got the train home to try and sort everything between us as I realised I couldn't stand not being with him. he just totally, flat out refused to even see me (despite the fact it had only been 2 weeks since he had last come to London to stay with me) I haven't spoken to or seen him since! A few half arsed texts from him but that's it.

I miss him so much. I sometimes think I will never get over it tbh. It hurts just as much now as it did 12 months ago. People tell me I'm better off without him and perhaps I am. I just don't know how to stop loving him. It's pathetic.sad

Milkandlotsandlotsofwine Sat 17-Nov-12 18:33:16

scatty Tonight I had planned to go out in Shoreditch with some visiting friends. As I am ill I am staying in to feel sorry for myself instead. Hoping others have more interesting treats in store.

Any dates planned?

watchoutforthatsnail Sat 17-Nov-12 18:44:43

No dates here smile

Spent the morning at the new house- its still beautiful. Dd loved it smile

Then have taken her wooden playhouse apart. Dug up and potted 15 shrubs. Cleared and packed one room and sent the ' ginny pigs' to a holiday at mothers.
Have pencilled in move and have sort of organised it. Exdh is helping and bringing a van. Hes contributing a few 100's to the move fund as well as upping the maintance a bit so i can afford to live there. Should have a team of 7 helping me move/ unpack and clean the old house. Which is good as its going to be very close to xmas .
I feel very lucky people are helping. And over the moon that exdh and i are getting on so well that hes helping, its so good for dd.

Of xourse this all hinges on me actually getting the house which wont be confirmed until end of next week.

Sponge-i bloody love quizes. Like the sound of your outfit smile

Milk -You sound totally fed up.

Yoga- did you dump yet?

Milk polyamory is a thing on OKC
Don't worry about not being PC, we've already changed it from 'arses in wheelchairs' grin

Yoga I've PMd you
