I've been poised with someone I know to employ 'I'm sure you didn't mean that to sound as rude as it came out' grin

I rehearse it before they come round grin

I have lurked too much when I start to talk about posters. "Dh, agentzigzag said x" or "today, on mumsnet..." Yikes

The first thing I ask DP when we finally have a chance to have a conversation
"Did you see the thread about...?"

Out at friends for dinner on Saturday, I mentioned something I'd read on MN (it was relevant to the general topic of conversation). Group went silent and changed the subject blush. Note to self.....

No it's not thread police by stealth! I hate thread police! sad

I've been starting a lot of conversations with 'today on mumsnet....' recently. blush

ouch!
Seriously though, I live in the US, and have begun to refer to trashcans as bins, diapers as nappies, and moms as mums. People think I am nuts. I have a bad lurking problem.

I talk to myself in my head in MN speak. I.e. " I must ask DH to pick up some milk on his way home". I also woke up the other morning with LeBoF in my head. What's that all about? Funny thing is I haven't been on MN as much recently as I've been so busy!!!!!
