I hold my hands up - I'm a lurker. I love reading through other threads, rarely posting.

But i AM a busymotheroffourboys and want to use the few hours I have getting the best of mumsnet. AIBU used to be good. Now it's mostly attention seekers talking about non stuff.

Say I am BU. Go on. raises fists and does pathetic punchy things in air

Glad you've come out of lurking to help entertain us all then grin

Can you tap dance?

loverofwine Fri 21-Sep-12 22:41:09

No. But I do a brilliant drunk middle aged woman reliving her youth whilst dancing to 80s music impression. You might almost say it was genuine.

loverofwine Fri 21-Sep-12 22:41:42

you would be wrong of course

NB this is more like it. IABCompletelyU - but dancing and having fun

PunkInDublic Fri 21-Sep-12 22:48:28

Docs are very now, I wear mine every day grin

I used to fancy I could breakdance after four bottles of Pils. Ah - happy days. Now a moonwalk to the toilet is a good day out!!

loverofwine Fri 21-Sep-12 22:48:37

..and WHAM. That was my first single. Club Tropicana plus a pair of slightly square 'fashion' shoes from Clarkes Those were the days. No one was ever BU then

YABU

Go and start an interesting thread somewhere else.

I can't as no-one ever posts on my threads

loverofwine Fri 21-Sep-12 22:49:47

I dance when I am emptying the dishwasher. It is actually almost as fun as snogging spotty fat boys because they were a sure thing.

"No one was ever BU then" Untrue, apparently some bitch accepted George's heart then the very next day, gave it away. Terrible times. At Christmas too.

..One and only please tell me where?

Wherever I go it is people stressing about stuff. I want a section that lets me let my hair down, drink red wine and talk about Descartes.

Does Mumsnet do this? Does it???

loverofwine Fri 21-Sep-12 22:52:10

And dance. Not to Descartes obviously because I don't believe he was a great singer.

MadgeHarvey Fri 21-Sep-12 22:52:17

WHAM was your first single? Holy freaking moley. Mine was The New Seekers.
<<< off to jump off something>>>

loverofwine Fri 21-Sep-12 22:52:30

But then I never met him and it is cruel to judge

loverofwine Fri 21-Sep-12 22:53:48

MadgeHarvey I had a new seekers single that my mum picked up from the school sale. And I was a late starter. And I look gooooood for my age. Obviously - because I've had four kids and that is AMAZING for your body

loverofwine Fri 21-Sep-12 22:57:31

Oh the beauty of mooosic. Bringing people together across the generations (winks at MadgeHarvey)

MadgeHarvey Fri 21-Sep-12 22:58:18

Maxi dresses!! Oh I loved those! Wasn't it just the best being a teenager then! Kids of today - greenhorns one and all!!

loverofwine Fri 21-Sep-12 23:00:03

Not if you had great legs flashes great legs at Madge who wobbles on her zimmer frame

MadgeHarvey Fri 21-Sep-12 23:00:03

<<<winks suggestively right back at lover>>>

It's good to have a bit of lurrrve here for a change!

loverofwine Fri 21-Sep-12 23:00:30
