Oh do fuck off.

That is all

Careful with those badges now, I only had enough bottle tops for a couple...

Morning Pan, will do. I have no idea who's riding this year.

Never knew Tiggy was a man!

Many of the male posters have names that identify them as men. Is that an attempt at upfront honesty, or a need to assert their manliness?

I never even knew that Tiggy and NicholasTeakozy were men. Defo non-twats! No clues whatever in anything I've ever read by them. Although to be fair the other regular lovely male posters are generally only identifiable by their names (thinking eg BetaDad or niceguy) which are bit of a giveaway.

NT we have a Vuelta thread in Sports, if you'd wish to pop along?

Pan Thu 22-Aug-13 22:34:11

Oh FFS.

NicholasTeakozy Thu 22-Aug-13 22:30:00

Yay! Tiggy's here! About bloody time.

AnyFucker Germany Thu 22-Aug-13 22:07:48

I am very happy to see you on my thread, tiggy

Speaking as a non twat, of course smile

Yeah. Not if you needed your tax return sent in, or your dodgy looking rash looked at.

But would you want to hear from someone who would start off with "Speaking as a plumber..."?

I suppose if your hot water is out, that's exactly what you'd want.

Maybe he could advise on my broken boiler. No hot water for Buff and the scoobies at the moment hmm

speaking as a plumbers wife I always put forward his opinion on Op's Pipe Query

I avoid stating my sex or gender as much as I can, as I want people to respond to me as me, rather than as a woman.

I have always disliked having to state one's gender when registering for talk forums (there is a long story about me having a lifetime ban from one where what was apparently the Final Straw was me suggesting the site hosts weren't technically competent enough to make it feasible to register without stating gender). Until I discovered Mumsnet.

No need for the blush Pacific - it happens. <crush-ending post grin>

Well, speaking as an Angel, I Agree withAF and Yoni and everyone.

Love marzipan. Tried making it once and decided that shop bought is definitely better, don't like the graininess of home made.

Everyone always assumes I am female, but traditionally, angels are male (but strangely neuter at the same time) which probably means I'm confused.

...unless the dp happens to have expertise relevant to a question, otherwise I agree totally.

Well, I've just asked my DH and he say no, I don't grin

<hic>

<goes to bed>

LadyBeagleEyes Wed 21-Aug-13 22:41:33

OH, and marzipan is shit. I always pick it out of the Christmas cake.

LadyBeagleEyes Wed 21-Aug-13 22:40:17

It also annoys me when there's a general thread and someone comes up with 'Well, I just asked my dp and he says...
Haven't you got your own fucking opinion?

What about shrivelled ovariez?

I hate stollen, but love marzipan <conflicted>

Totally agree with the OP btw, AF
