akaWisey Sat 22-Jun-13 20:20:54

So - everyone else in the whole wide world is out on a date except moi.

That's fine. I'm just sitting in my house, having stripped 50shadesofshitepaint from the top layer on the skirting board.

No, that's fine <pours another glass of paint stripper wine.

i can beat you for SADNESS.

I am stalking pictures of an "on-off guy I date" and wondering if facially i resemble his ex (and in turn, if we both resemble his MOTHER confused).

Its hard to tell.

<dances around with wisey holding a bag of chips>.

I'm spending my Saturday night catching up on TV watching 'dates' & 'first dates'

Emailed nameless stating I was updating my holiday iPod and remembered when I'd asked him to fill my memory stick hmm shock with some songs, then sat cross-legged in the middle of my kitchen table listening to his favourite songs and smiling that I'd met someone lovely. smile with the passage of a few hours, I've decided the OKC stuff is incidental. All shall be well and all shall be well. all manner of things shall be well. (Can we add that as point 6 in the rules?!)

Snapespeare Sat 22-Jun-13 20:24:01

Oh! Wher are the rules?!

akaWisey Sat 22-Jun-13 20:26:46

snape I think it's ESSENTIAL we add this to the rules.

I am a bit pissed probably though.

akaWisey Sat 22-Jun-13 20:27:11

I lost the rules!!!!!!

akaWisey Sat 22-Jun-13 20:27:41

Somebody find the rules please.

rainbowfeet Sat 22-Jun-13 20:27:50

Snapespeare Sat 22-Jun-13 20:29:46

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;
6. All shall be well and all shall be well. All manner of things shall be well.

(Took the liberty of adding #6)

akaWisey Sat 22-Jun-13 20:30:19

lurking shall we take bets?

Snapespeare Sat 22-Jun-13 20:36:53

I am drinking grapes. wink

Scrazy Sat 22-Jun-13 20:37:49

Place marking, I'm home alone, having a quiet night as am off tomorrow for the night.

akaWisey Sat 22-Jun-13 20:37:54

I like rule number 6.

lurkinglorna Sat 22-Jun-13 20:38:13

I'm not sure his mums online. I'm not sure I can really call him up to ask if he's indulging an Oedipal complex on me, or if his mum is on Bebo or Facebook so I can look at her, we're a bit more casual than that.

I WANT SOME GRAPES. Grapes in jelly with vodka.

akaWisey Sat 22-Jun-13 20:39:49

snapes I have had many several grapes to drink.

akaWisey Sat 22-Jun-13 20:42:31

I think paint stripper is quite potent. Perhaps I should post on Dadsnet about this.

OhWesternWind Sat 22-Jun-13 20:45:30

Rule 6 is the best and truest rule of all.

Drunk all the wine. Given dcs a lecture on why Too Much Alcohol is a Bad Thing. Started on the rum. Emailed Alpha.

Rainbow - babysitters. Local teenagers are the best and cheapest. They will sit in your house and FB their friends for a tenner instead of sitting across the road and FBing their friends from their bedrooms. Lots of nice men online to take you out. It can be done, honestly.
