Can I start off this lovely day by scattering peace and love, gin and valium, flowers and cake and invite you all to a chatty, fun-and-poetry-filled thread where all are welcome and life can get back to normal.

I will even don my Christmas hat grudgingly and a week early

What is ss? Is he happier there? I hope so.

HotheadPaisan Fri 06-Dec-13 15:03:44

I believe it might be youretoast, with a sprinkling of like-minded dabblers.

Maryz Fri 06-Dec-13 15:03:49

I keep thinking I know people these days.

I can't even remember names irl [sob]. At least people irl can't name change. I'd be fucked.

youretoastmildred Fri 06-Dec-13 15:04:06

buthereagain, you are probably right

it is so lovely to see you but on the other hand it is a bit disappointing when you think you have found a lovely clever person on the internet and it turns out to be one of the ones you already knew about (but then I shall consider you a new discovery because you did get away, and I gutlessly marvelled at your escape and my loss from within the completely non-existent barbed wire)

Hullygully Fri 06-Dec-13 15:04:27

I am just popping by, bruised, battered, maligned and disappointed, to say: what an excellent poem buttherreagain

now I know who you are, and how are you doing?, who the hell are mildred and that japan cat?

Maryz Fri 06-Dec-13 15:05:02

Self-pleasuresrs?

[hopeful]

HotheadPaisan Fri 06-Dec-13 15:05:02

Specialist school, much happier thanks, very early days and oh my word, it's been quite a difficult time but onwards and all that.

ButThereAgain Fri 06-Dec-13 15:05:56

Oh I missed that about your son Maryz. How fantastic. Well, you must have a Poetic Bent about your person somewhere that you have passed to him.

Hello hully too.

HotheadPaisan Fri 06-Dec-13 15:07:32

I find the names thing really difficult, and making it clear what I'm replying to, just like chatting on really.

kotinka Fri 06-Dec-13 15:08:26

ghost -

In that case lets talk of twin prams and parking,
opinions so wild, you'll find posters called "barking",

Lets get in a row over if tinsel's chavvy,
and always eschewed by the stylish and savvy.

And talking of style, do you dare venture there?
that region of MN with great clothes and hair.

I'm no good at bunfights but quite good with buns,
and I'll try to remember, no LOLs or HUNs!

ButThereAgain Fri 06-Dec-13 15:08:31

I hope that works out brilliantly for him hothead.

The japan cat. I had thoughts about who she might be too. But largely I am just confused about everyone.

Hullygully Fri 06-Dec-13 15:09:29

me too hothead

I'm always having to then post, that was for x

Because of course everyone really really cares

youretoastmildred Fri 06-Dec-13 15:09:40

I don't know if I have ever known you, Hothead, but I hope your son likes his new school anyway.

Maryz Fri 06-Dec-13 15:10:59

Hey Hully fsmile

Welcome to my world of peace and love and <grits teeth> Christmas smileys.

This is appropriate fgrin

Today, is here and yesterday, is gone!
Now, it's time, you have to move on!
There's no looking back, what was
before, for it just isn't there, anymore!
You have to look, to the future and it
will show you, the way. For it's the
beginning, of a brand new day! Time,
is the best healer, as everybody knows.
And whatever happens, is the way the
wind blows! Don't ever look back, to
what was before, for it's gone and
forgotten and not here, anymore! For
whatever reason, it was meant to be.
You'll come out unscathed and happy
to be free!
Audrey Heller

have you ever known me mildred?

biblically, essentially, disembodied or fleetingly

Maryz Fri 06-Dec-13 15:12:53

Ss schools are great, btw [bitter]. Inclusion is over rated.

ghostonthecanvas Fri 06-Dec-13 15:13:11

Kotinka - thats good. I need to practice I think!

Hullygully Fri 06-Dec-13 15:13:26

That's rubbish tho Mary. One must keep an eye on the past whilst dancng in the present and looking to the future. And not fall over.

kotinka Fri 06-Dec-13 15:13:35

maryz congrats to your son - would he let you post his poem here?

HotheadPaisan Fri 06-Dec-13 15:13:37

Sometime the misunderstandings and cross postings are really funny and take the conversation off in a new direction. Other times not, obv.

HotheadPaisan Fri 06-Dec-13 15:13:56

These poems are excellent!

VanitasVanitatum Fri 06-Dec-13 15:14:26

butthereagain wow. I have always wanted to be able to write poetry because I love it but I simply can't. That was a brilliant take off.

Hullygully Fri 06-Dec-13 15:14:50

who was it who spoke of a serious sandwich? Bran? Absy?

A really awful flippant post in between two corkingly serious ones

HotheadPaisan Fri 06-Dec-13 15:14:59

And thank you, youretoast, you gotta hope, it really all couldn't have been much worse. I do this quick sequential posting a lot too.

youretoastmildred Fri 06-Dec-13 15:16:07

What are threads for?
threads are where we live.
They come, they wake us
Time and time over.
They are to be happy in:
Where can we live but threads?

Ah, solving that question
Brings Hully and ButThereAgain
In their long coats
Running over the fields.
