Any ideas what to do with Sambuca. Got a bottle of that hanging around.

lulubellaboozle Fri 25-Jan-13 21:27:03

Great scooby have fun!

kinNora get me to a Waitrose!

antonym Fri 25-Jan-13 21:27:38

watch fwiw you were obviously in the right, most people said so, i said so, and i think given the name of this site men who post here post on sufferance and you shouldn't let one of them drive you away.

I am eating dairy milk with Oreos and drinking a cup of tea.

Majorly p'd off today. Had enough of the world for the time being. Roll on Monday so I can get this horrible weekend thing out of the way!!!

48howdidthathappen Fri 25-Jan-13 21:30:01

Scooby In a moment of madness I have agreed to go to a Rock & Roll gig with Mr R&R. Wanna swap grin

KinNora Fri 25-Jan-13 21:30:54

Scooby, are you anywhere near Manchester ? Ian Brown looky-likeys are ten a penny around town - I can go talent spotting for you next time I'm up

antonym - EXCUSE ME??? "Men who post here post on sufferance"????

How DARE you!

KinNora Fri 25-Jan-13 21:32:26

Lulu, I have one around the corner, let me know if you'd like a bottle shipped to Lulu Towers.

KinNora Fri 25-Jan-13 21:33:45

Oh-oh ^. < pours more booze>

Scrazy Fri 25-Jan-13 21:35:14

Dairy milk with Oreo is delicious.

OhWesternWind Fri 25-Jan-13 21:35:22

Men don't post on sufferance! At least I hope you (men) don't feel that way. I'd be mortified if anyone felt unable to join in because of their sex, I really would. It's great to have all types of people on here, different ages, experiences, backgrounds and genders.

48 well, It goes with the territory!

lulubellaboozle Fri 25-Jan-13 21:36:16

kinNora thank you! One round the corner from where I work, I'm there on Monday! Can just see Mr ExArmy with a twinkle in his hand grin

Yogagirl17 Fri 25-Jan-13 21:36:28

Well since I got slated for my choice of beverage last night I'll have a French Martini please. Unless there's enough sloe gin to go around. I seem to recall being partial to a sloe gin fizz the first time I was dating (ie 20 years ago!).

Snapespeare Fri 25-Jan-13 21:37:48

I'd support you voice, but that would mark me as some kind of handmaiden.

It's difficult enough being a 'backstabber' because you voice an opposing opinion.

I'm off to read a book. I'll be back when it's a bit calmer. Probably somewhere around thread 42.

Yogagirl17 Fri 25-Jan-13 21:38:42

48 Any ideas what to do with Sambuca

Yes! Pour it down the sink as fast as possibly. Ugh - vile stuff!

scoobydooagain Fri 25-Jan-13 21:40:20

No, i'm in Scotland, so not so many Ian Brown alikes around. Now you know 48 you will enjoy the Rock & Roll, few drinks, few cigs, you'll love it.

No, I certainly do not post on sufferance. I enjoy posting here. I am not a parent but I am a godparent and I find this a very useful site to gain insight into parenting for my role as an active godparent. I have also been told my many regular female posters that they actually find it useful and interesting to get a male perspective on things.

I hadn't realised that some women here believe this should be a female only club. antonym the site may be called mumsnet but you see that little byline beneath the logo? It says "by parents for parents". Oddly enough, men are parents too.

48howdidthathappen Fri 25-Jan-13 21:44:41

Yoga My son left it here so you are probably right grin

I will support you voice smile All welcome surely.

mercury7 Fri 25-Jan-13 21:46:44

men are not here on sufferance, all genders are equally welcome smile

scoobydooagain Fri 25-Jan-13 21:47:09

I find the male perspective useful too

48howdidthathappen Fri 25-Jan-13 21:51:32

I will enjoy the gig. We do have a great laugh together. Setting of no importance really.

antonym Fri 25-Jan-13 21:52:44

Voice I am not a woman.

And when I say "on sufferance" what I mean is that there is a greater than usual obligation on men posting here not to start fights.

In line with that obligation I will now shut up.

KinNora Fri 25-Jan-13 21:53:37

A brief foray into seriousness because I feel quite strongly about this, in my view male posters are a hugely welcome addition to both this thread and the site as a whole, I would be horrified if anyone felt 'under sufferance' in anyway.

MsCellophane Fri 25-Jan-13 21:54:22

Men are definitely welcome, only men can try to answer why their fellow men send cock shots for a start - and we can help them by letting them know they must never send a cock shot

I got blown out by mrcouncilman - he did keep me posted all day and was still at work at 8pm so he will get another chance. I'm a soft touch but I really think he needs a friend with what's going on in his personal life, he has said he feels very alone at the moment and was tearing up on our date talking about it (mum had heart attack last week) So, I will be a friend to him for now if he wants one

I will join you all in a little drink - I'll have a mailbu please
