None of you will have a clue who I am as I've just NC'd anyway.

I am bored of this place, BORED I TELL YOU, plus it's so difficult to MN during summer hols.

<tedious sigh>

How does an elephant get down from a tree? He sits on a leaf and waits until Autumn.

Which is when I'll be back, probably.

<dramatic exit>

Oh that's nice WimpyMum, thank you. smile

Remus we had a fabulous thunder storm this morning, the most enormous lightening crack I've ever heard - I thought it had struck next door's house because it set of the alarm. COOL.

They are okay, I checked.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:12:21


Great, now I can't even spell.

Who ARE you?


DiaryOfAWimpyMum Fri 02-Aug-13 16:12:51

I'm very very very bored too, my books all look rubbish (not brightly covered) my DC are away, I almost had a panic attack as my laptop charger just had to rush out and buy a new one, now I'm also broke, so broke and bored.

Oh and it's hot outside again...

Just drink tea then come back, or lurk, I lurk too much

Diary - shall we swap books?

OP - I think I know who you are.

Neh it's not Reality.

See you in 3 days the autumn my dear.

Pagwatch Fri 02-Aug-13 16:14:56

Have you tried putting a hammer through it.

Is it you who keeps breaking the damn site and making it go offline too?

everlong Fri 02-Aug-13 16:17:19

Oh come on then ABF spill the beans.

I think I know who it is. She always ignores me on other threads too wink

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:17:40

lightening crack sounds like bleaching of hair


No, not Reality.

I had a new book delivered today "500 Toys" by Nguyen Le

That should keep me out of mischief.

Pags, I am tempted by the hammer idea.

Boobies. I am 1980s casio scientific calculator, doncha know nuffink! grin

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:18:46

I do not ignore you everlong (do I ? sorry)

Crochet? Nope, you can't possibly be who I thought you were then.

DiaryOfAWimpyMum Fri 02-Aug-13 16:21:06

Yes to book swap

I never know who anyone is anymore,the site is too big for me - or I may be getting old...

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:21:25


there was a story with it wasn't there? or there was at my school, woman went to the doctor he said so many pills for so many days, so you would tap out the numbers on the calculator etc, and she ended up BOOBLESS, - I guess she ended up with BOOBIES in your story!


5318008 Fri 02-Aug-13 16:23:29

Oooh v good story, like it

Diary - Okay, my first offer is, 'Dune' by Frank Herbert. I am sooooooooooooo bored of it.

AmazingBouncingFerret Fri 02-Aug-13 16:24:17

shock BOOBIES! I always thought it meant to say boobless but you'd either missed a 5 off the end and everyone was too polite to tell you or the name was already taken by someone who last used it in 2005!

AmazingBouncingFerret Fri 02-Aug-13 16:25:23

Everlong, I have no idea who she is sorry!

everlong Fri 02-Aug-13 16:27:25

Sorry OP. probably guessing totally wrong grin

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:32:47

Exactly ABF, I have been too polite about the BOOBLESS, we are right, BOOBIES is wrong.

Bowlersarm Fri 02-Aug-13 16:37:21

Can I just ask OP as you've reached the end of your MNing days (for now wink)

Does the typical MNer do this >

1) find interesting MN site, somehow
2) lurk a bit
3) lurk a lot
4) tentatively join
5) tentatively post
6) tentatively post a bit more
7) start posting a lot
8) post on the hour every hour, if not more?

....I am on (8), and DH is becoming more and more hmmconfused, and I am starting to pretend I'm not MNing, at all, oh no.

I need to be at you stage of

9) flounce (much better than leaving quietly)

If my marriage is to remain intact.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:37:31

I should say Remus that I am not a seasoned crocheter, - I made a bumble bee when I was about 14, that was the last creation.

I just wanted to make something, erm, unique for my niece's baby shower next month.

It will most definitely be unique.

Quetzalcoatlus Fri 02-Aug-13 16:38:59

Yes, Bowlersarm, that's about the size of it.

Mr Quetzalcoatlus does not approve of my MNing either.

Tough Shit, I say.

I knitted a hippo when I was about 14. It was a large, green, lumpy disaster. My sister's bitch smile was small, white and perfect. The day I think about crocheting is the day you drag me to the wall and shoot me please.
