To think that before discovering MN I didn't....

Buy clothes from Boden

Have any knowledge about a penis beaker

Realise that a chicken could last soooo long

Understand that there was such a problem with parking in P&C spaces if you didn't have a child with you

I was, indeed, ignorant.

And, in particular, I have realised that I have an addictive personality and my addiction is this site. To the extent that I have recommended "the other site" to my new-mum-step-daughter just so I can keep my presence on here a secret...

I am ashamed.

But I really like Boden grin

i have been her over 10 years (shame) and still don't know (or care) what a penis beaker is

boden is okay but only for wrap over tops

a chicken cannot last for more than one meal its a mn myth

Since discovering MN I still don't buy Boden,think PB was a load of shite and make a chicken last one meal.

Penis beaker?

Yes, I have learned about the envelope vests too. Had to test the theory today! It worked. The rug is now on the washing line. Probably being darked on.

On a serious note, I didn't realise how many women lived in fear of their partner.

On a lighter note, I learnt a fabulous microwave quiche that cooks in the microwave for breakfast as I slap on my face before work.

I didn't know that women treated babies like an accessory and 'wore' them.

I didn't realise that it was frowned upon to 'calve' prior to your thirty fifth birthday.
that every meal served to your offspring must be the perfect proportions of protein, wholegrain and organic veg.

I've started saying 'that really boils my piss' all the time. I can only have picked that up here.grin

Don't scoff. People pay good money for that sort of thing up West you know!

lemonade30 Fri 14-Aug-15 22:25:21

oh I'm not scoffing.

there's a reason my cupboards are chock full of spaghetti hoops and super noodles

Bullshitbingo Fri 14-Aug-15 22:29:28

I didn't have any idea there were so many like minded women out there. It warms my cockles to think of you all out there, like a great big sisterhood of vipers grin

What? confused

WorraLiberty Fri 14-Aug-15 22:32:04

I'd rather wear a colostomy bag than Boden

Penis beaker was a bit 'meh' in my opinion

I can't make a chicken last longer than an hour, because as soon as I stick them in the freezer, they die.

P&C parking spaces should be shoved to the very furthest side of the carpark. Then we'd see who really needed them wink

Mehitabel6 Fri 14-Aug-15 22:32:30

I feel that I have missed out. To my shame I have no idea what an envelope vest is. blush

zeezeek Fri 14-Aug-15 22:34:01

OMG I also nearly think I outed myself as a MN addict by saying the phrases: ODFOD and also fuck off to the far side of fuck and then fuck off some more.

It was in company.

I saw raised eyebrows.....I can only assume that it is the equivalent of a Mason's handshake.

WorraLiberty Fri 14-Aug-15 22:36:47

Oh the far side of fuck thing's been going round the internet for years.

sofato5miles Fri 14-Aug-15 22:37:25

Zeek, the 'fuck of to the far side of fuck' quote is how i justify my time on here.

sofato5miles Fri 14-Aug-15 22:38:41

Oh worra, you are such an t'interweb tart.

lemonade30 Fri 14-Aug-15 22:39:23

as has the same old regurgitated shite peddled in the boden 'catalogue'

SanityClause Fri 14-Aug-15 22:42:56

Funnily enough, I used to wear Boden, but stopped around the time I started using MN. Or possibly a year or two earlier.

I hate re-cooked chicken, but always have plenty left for a good few chicken sandwiches. I do buy big chickens, though.

I do remember being up in arms when my DC were little about P&C parking. A bit silly, really. I don't park in them now that I don't have little ones, but that's because I'm a bit uptight about roolz.

Oh, and penis beaker wasn't even funny.

Not my circus, not my monkeys

A whole new way of looking at the world for me.
