I'm sure it's been asked time and again but I just did a quick search and can't find a clear answer.

Are you crepey of skin, or crepey of fabric? Need to know.

So pleased you've asked. I don't know but marking my place.

Same here. I always skip those threads as I don't understand what crepey means but then I feel left out as everybody seems to be in them!

herbaceous Tue 29-Jan-13 19:33:18

We are crepey of skin, particularly the wattle. The thread started years ago when 'women of a certain age' started moaning on about the trials of middle-agedom, such as gunts, jowls and hot flushes. And it's just gone on from there! Come and join us (only if old and decrepit - no sprightly young things please!)

I assumed it was a spelling mistake that turned into one of those 'in jokes'?

Catchingmockingbirds Tue 29-Jan-13 19:34:46

herb your explanation has just made me even more confused blush.

LifeIsBetterInFlipFlops Tue 29-Jan-13 19:36:55

Ah thanks Herb, <nods head and sets off wattle wobble>

We can take over and spend the next 1000 posts defining what exactly a crepey is!!!

Oh and if this is going to be home for a bit (plumps up cushions, and settles down) can someone link to two venues for next Friday with times extra o if I can make it I don't have to scroll through loads of pages to find info, but have it on page 1 of thread.......pleeeeeasssse smile

What is a gunt? confused

MrsSchadenfreude Tue 29-Jan-13 20:48:44

It's the bit of fat that hangs over your C section scar. Or the bit of fat that just hangs over the top of your legs if you are fat and didn't have a C section. <helpful>

Blackduck Tue 29-Jan-13 21:06:55

Merci smile

beachyhead Tue 29-Jan-13 21:32:28

Sorry are we just here, taking over, or are we somewhere else???

Stropperella Tue 29-Jan-13 21:32:55

Not sure I can settle under this thread title. I may have an existential crisis every time I click on "Threads I'm On". grin

Stropperella Tue 29-Jan-13 21:34:03

Re: explaining what a crepey is - I could just post a link to a photo of my neck and that would explain everything. (sad, but true)

Stropperella Tue 29-Jan-13 21:38:09

I have an S&B query. Why are these so cheap? What is wrong with them? Are they just too last year or something?

bigTillyMint Tue 29-Jan-13 21:41:31

Hmmmm, maybe they just don't look very good on? Worth a try though for that pricegrin

herbaceous Tue 29-Jan-13 22:05:41

Lostinindia - you can google 'gunt' for clarification, but you'll need to bleach your eyeballs afterwards.

LifeIsBetterInFlipFlops Tue 29-Jan-13 22:13:35

Funny...I thought gunt was a typo for grunt - think I'll give Googling that a miss, thanks for the warning.

< marking place........>

herbaceous Tue 29-Jan-13 22:19:10

Think of a cross between gut and, well, you know....

INeedThatForkOff Tue 29-Jan-13 22:28:54

I have a crepey gunt, but I'm 35 and gave birth three months ago so I'm hoping to be guntless later this year (naive).

I'm glad I asked though, because whenever I notice a crepe dress online I think I ought to buy it because there's a whole MN quiche devoted to it.

Stropperella Tue 29-Jan-13 22:44:11

<gives serious thought to getting a crepe dress to match neck>

What's a "MN quiche"?....... Have heard it a lot, not food I guess.

oldqueencrepey Tue 29-Jan-13 23:14:13

Bloody hell crepeys... I have a really busy day followed by parents' evening for ds1 and out to supper and when I get home and log on I find mayhem and chaos.... are we staying here...? or starting up a new home of our own?
I like the wattle and daub image...
"What are crepeys made of? Wattle and daub"
"A Crepey is not just for Christmas"
'Crepeys on Pancake Day: Yay!"
ok. That's me done.

Blackduck Wed 30-Jan-13 06:03:37

MrsS give me back my brain cell! I thought of Crepeys are not just for Christmas....but didn't post it.
Not sure I cc an stay here with all these young interlopers asking questions... What we doing crepeys?

If you don't yet know what it is to be crepey then you are either very young, or have excellent genes and have drunk less alcohol than me and therefore, by default, I hate you.
