Umami Sun 05-Jun-11 21:40:53

What's up with your fing?

Hullygully Sun 05-Jun-11 21:41:24

Not MY fing, fings. In general.

forum evolved. Hully not like

In what respect? On MN? I agree, but then could also disagree...same old, same old. In Britain? Oh yes, the jury is still out whether the change is for the good. World wide? Oh yes they are, slaughter and maiming of innocents - its par for the course it seems.

I remember when this was all trees...

Hullygully Sun 05-Jun-11 21:44:19

No, not the forum. Fings.

I used to love Spangles.

Nothing fills the Spangle-shaped void in my life.

And there are other fings, but this is the most important fing.

Of course tis to my chargrain that we have all evolved in Netmums, but there yea go.

Umami Sun 05-Jun-11 21:46:56

...and you could buy a ticket to the pictures, some lard dipped in sugar, and a ride home on a charabanc, and still have change from thre'pence ha'penny...

FunnysInTheGarden Sun 05-Jun-11 21:47:02

You used to see a lot more flashers. When I was the age my dd is now, I'd already seen four, She hain't seen nary a whisker.

Anyfing wot happens before you are 25 is new and exiting
Anyfing wot happens before you are 40, is ok ish
After 40 , its new fangled tacky and shit
