Where are the bikers, and the picnic? Suggestion for OP - get rid of Sky+ and put the money saved into buying a dictionary grin (or more plates).

LTB - and take the unreasonable plates with you - zoom

I'm going to go against the consensus and say you ABU OP. Everyone knows you serve beans in a cup.

i am bored

Arf! Fannying the jug & flicking the bean!

It's not just about the literacy though.

I hate threads like this because they are started purely to take the piss out of people who have literacy problems.

SoupDragon Sun 06-Oct-13 08:06:02

Dull dull dull.

It's only threads like this where you need the context, CHJR. For other useful background bits, do advanced searches for pavving (not paving), fumming and hamwidge.

If he was doing T Rex arms again it would have been really hard for him to reach the beans in the jug. No wonder he just fannied about with them.

Thanks empress. That did help, though if MN is going to turn out to need as many footnotes as James Joyce maybe I shoulda just stayed with the jug of wine - or indeed the beans smile - esp at this hour

haven't caught up on thread or history. And I've had a couple of glasses of wine. Let's see how I do...

DH recently purchased a 35p plastic jug from Adsa. I think serving a tin of microwavable breakfast in a jug is just plain common sense. Plus you can see the volume of beans and can judge the 1-of-5-a-day volume from this. When DH returns from work (erm 1.5 weeks) I shall serve him thusly and see how it goes.

CHJR, there are a lot of historical references going on. Read this, it will help.

grin Yes, it is Dawndonna and I've heard it's lovely this time of year. They do good frozen yoghurt.

Is Sorbay on the west coast?

Donky Sat 05-Oct-13 22:28:36

twisters are sorbay. I prefer ice.

RalphGnu Sat 05-Oct-13 22:27:40

Ah, zooms. The rocket shaped ice lollies. I prefer Twisters myself.

ShatnersBassoon Sat 05-Oct-13 22:27:01

Oh,a Zoom! I was thinking a zoom was a euphemism an activity.

gordyslovesheep Sat 05-Oct-13 22:19:28

CAT even grin zoom went to my head

gordyslovesheep Sat 05-Oct-13 22:19:01

too much zooooooooooom maybe wirecate

CHJR Sat 05-Oct-13 22:18:42

I'm beginning to think it might help...?

Have I sniffed too much wine?
