The Rules

1 Develop a thick skin;
2. Do not invest emotionally too soon;
3. It's all BS until it actually happens;
4. Trust your gut instinct;
5. If it is not fun, stop

Off we go...

Oi, Ike, you can't do that to us - you complete barrrstard

KinNora Wed 15-May-13 23:07:12

<sulks. Again>

VelvetSpoon Wed 15-May-13 23:08:26

Kin that wasn't quite the sort of unusual I was hoping for!

Ike what if we say pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase? smile

(I used to make the word please last for what felt like hours about a minute as a child, it irritated my parents so much they gave in to keep me quiet!)

smoothieooo Wed 15-May-13 23:08:51

Thank you for PM'ing me Ike - blimey that sounds like an evening and a half!!!!!!!!

smoothieooo Wed 15-May-13 23:09:34

Just kidding obvs...

What happened??? You can't leave us in suspense!

ike1 Wed 15-May-13 23:10:02

Yep Smoothieoooooooo bet the others wished they had wondered eh? x

ike1 Wed 15-May-13 23:10:57

Oh dear is that the end of the threa.....

<worries about loved up status and being woman in 30s and other posters thinking she is cliquey as she's been here a bit over a year>

<goes back to lurking but I do read every day>

Secretservice Wed 15-May-13 23:14:49

Pah Ike. The good folk of this thread - not me obviously - have spend the afternoon defending the thread against accusations of cliquey exclusiveness. And then you wander in, late I might add and undermine them with your PMs grin

ike1 Wed 15-May-13 23:18:52

Too bloody right ...the thread can stand for worries about that!!

Secretservice Wed 15-May-13 23:20:17

Oi Nora he's mine! You can't go offering him out willy nilly grin
Besides he's only 'available' so I don't think it fair you should be tempting Velvet to abandon C, nips or no!

ike1 Wed 15-May-13 23:20:24

Instead they should have been cogitating on my romantic affaires....damn them...

smoothieooo Wed 15-May-13 23:22:34

Come on Ike spill all ... Earwigs an'all!

ike1 Wed 15-May-13 23:26:18

ok, ok, if you all insist soooooo creative artist type, extremely eccentric, very nice person, doesn't believe in money. Do I fancy him...not much. Do I like him, as a person, yes. Had a warm hug as his train pulled in. There.

ike1 Wed 15-May-13 23:28:02

Nice as a one off, would I reciprocate the visit....dunno. Would he even ask...dunno. Do I care? Dunno.

smoothieooo Wed 15-May-13 23:28:29

And as his train pulled out?????

Secretservice Wed 15-May-13 23:28:54

That's how they work Ike. They chose this evening because they knew we'd all be gathered waiting for your return and to add injury to insult they distract us all <cliquey, prudish, flakes that we are>

ike1 Wed 15-May-13 23:29:24

Have I got wind from the lager consumed? Yes.

ike1 Wed 15-May-13 23:30:28

Oh sorry ..that was as the train pulled in to pull out iyswim.

Secretservice Wed 15-May-13 23:30:52

And then of course I miss it!

Arf at beaks at dawn OWW grin

Ike well I'm not going to ask now. No, not even a little bit, no siree.

and it's always a quiche on MN, everyone who's in the quiche knows that. If you call the quiche a clique then it means you are not in the quiche. See?

smoothieooo Wed 15-May-13 23:31:56

Pardon you.

Is 'dunno' a good thing in that it's not a 'not on your nelly'?

Ike what was the train like? <innocent prudish face>

ike1 Wed 15-May-13 23:33:59

Dunno means ...maybe I might have snogged him as an experiment after 4 pints but not after 2....

ike1 Wed 15-May-13 23:34:48

The train was average sized...
