In the meantime...

I felt the earth move in my hands
Like the trembling heart
Of a captive bird

60s

Utterly beautiful song

Honeyroar Sat 21-Nov-20 22:18:33

@FlouncerInDenial - damn you!!! I just went to scoot back and finish the last thread (like I usually do) and was shocked and devastated that you had got there first.. should have done it earlier when I had the chance. It's my job!

Ahem.. I'll get over it .. a lyric to take my mind off things..

'I saw my love walking down the aisle
And as he passed me by, he turned And he smiled
The preacher joined their hands
And all the people began to stand
When I shouted:'

Welcome, Cheezer (great user name!)

You are not the first poster on here to come on and say you've been lurking for a bit (actually, you say you've not been lurking, this is the first time you've clicked, but others have said this, so NOT to Cheezer, but to any lurkers....)

I hope as a group we're not unwelcoming. If anyone announces they're new, I hope we always say hi.
These are threads which have been running since about May, so there are a bunch of us who've been on here a while. And have maybe got to know each other a little bit.
But whilst it may look a bit clique-y, we're in no way a clique.

I think (hope, trust) I'm speaking for everyone when I say anyone out there is welcome to come along and play.

You'll lose, but don't let that stop you!

We're basically all quite nice.

I'm obviously the most well-balanced, kindest and nicest regular poster on here (as well as the best guesser). But the rest of them are all ok.
Fleamaker, unfortunately does actually have fleas.
Coffee, again unfortunately, is a caffeine addict and can get quite snappy.
Shiny is a narcissist
Midge has height issues
Needtoknow is terribly needy
FlouncingBabooshka is prone to hissy-fit tantrums
Honey is a bit sickly sweet
Carnage goes a bit crazy-wild
Etc, etc, etc.

Basically they've all (except me) got their issues.

But if you're lurking, feel free to come and lose play

😂😂.. Tbh I just knew you were biding your time and lying in wait for the last few posts. I thought I'd give you a chance for once. (Oh and I fell asleep on the sofa 😴)

'I saw my love walking down the aisle
And as he passed me by, he turned And he smiled
The preacher joined their hands
And all the people began to stand
When I shouted:'

It should have been me!

Oh, it should have been me,
Someone call the police
That woman down there is a goddam thief

Correct @CoffeeBeansGalore 🙌🏼 and highly appropriate under the circumstances

FlouncerInDenial Sun 22-Nov-20 00:45:14

How gutted will you be, Needtoknow, when I scoot in at the next awards evening and scoop up the "finishes threads award" trophy up from under your very nose????

#comingforyou

FlouncerInDenial Sun 22-Nov-20 00:46:11

and highly appropriate under the circumstances
And yet, it was me.

Always the bridesmaid, needtoknow, always the bridesmaid....

NeedToKnow101 Sun 22-Nov-20 00:46:54

@FlouncerInDenial - I hope you swept up, turned off the lights and took the empty bottles in the recycling. There's more to ending a thread than just being at the place at the right time you know...

No I'm not taking it too seriously!
