To think that posters don't need to

put a blush face when there is nothing embarrasing about their statement.

'Can you find me a top? I'm size 12 blush'

'Help me to decorate.We just bought a house blush

'I've got a promotion blush'

'We had sex last night blush'

Why??? Do grown up women blush so easily?

I hate smilies, so immature.

I agree for most of your points.

Although if I had just had a threesome with Bruce Forsyth and Edwin's Currie I would be blush. So it does depend on the details.

arf @'Edwin's Currie. Mine's a tikka masala

I think that posters do not need to use incomplete sentences for their thread titles, thus coaxing you to click on the thread for the big reveal, only to be sorely disappointed at how dull it is grin.

grin

twinklytroll Sat 22-Oct-11 14:33:50

Sorry blame auto correct. blush [smilegrin

twinklytroll Sat 22-Oct-11 14:34:39

I am so immature with my smileys I can't even use them properly.

Pagwatch Sat 22-Oct-11 14:35:44

So true Bibb.

And it is always dull. It's uncanny. You would think on statistical probability alone there would be a funny/interesting one. But no.

But I am an optimistic. I always click

AgentZigzag Sat 22-Oct-11 14:40:15

lol blush

EdlessAllenPoe Sat 22-Oct-11 14:40:18

hmm

:P

twinklytroll Sat 22-Oct-11 14:40:26

I would rather someone just came out and said " you utter twat" rather than used the hmm.

I was once amused to get a hmm on here whilst being slagged off at the same time on twitter. Why not just say it on the thread.

Pagwatch Sat 22-Oct-11 14:44:32

shock @ hmm and :P

Pagwatch Sat 22-Oct-11 14:45:54

God me too Twinkly

But then you just say 'oh do fuck off' and you get deleted. But you can hmm all night and it is allowed.

crazynannawitchbitch Sat 22-Oct-11 14:46:59

Maybe they're all menopausal blush = hot flush

HippoPottyMouth Sat 22-Oct-11 14:48:50

Similarly, I HATE it when people put TMI in the thread title, then you go in and there is no 'I' at all hardly, it'll just be something like "I've got my period (sorry! blush)", or "I went to the toilet earlier".

I always feel like shouting THAT IS NOT TMI, but then I might look a bit weird. It's not like I actually want to read gory details, I just wander what sort of weird people think its embarassing to admit having used a toilet.

I tend to reserve blush for typos and the very occasional spelling error.

I do use grin a lot, because I'm afraid people won't get that I'm joking and will attack me and I feel pathetic when that happens.

I use the strikeout a lot in case you hadn't noticed. I love strikeouts.

I used to use hmm as meaning [ponders], as I thought for a long time that was what it meant, i.e. "well I'm thinking about this as I type and I'm really not sure". I think it is only fairly recently that hmm has become "fuck off you troll I don't believe you".

Pagwatch Sat 22-Oct-11 14:53:42

Hahahahaha at crazynanna.

Yy to menopausal. I want to put that on the middle aged women thread

grin

BOOareHaunting Sat 22-Oct-11 15:00:17

I use blush when admitting my own stupidity so not very often! wink

I use grin alot and use to use smile until someone said it was PA.

I use the hmm in the way maryz described it above but now I know it's hidden meaning I may need to limit it's use!

so how about wine as it after noon on at Saturday.

I killed a man in cold blood blush
