A wordy fred title I know, but it's too early to think of something snappier!

Get ready for the end of the world: grab your OFRS, your emergency gin supply and join us shrivelled harridans in the BESH Bunker.

Admittance is only permitted on production of a successfully completed BESHtionnaire (hint, check out previous BESH threads)

Aw, Tipps that sounds a bit shit. I ended up in a loud bar on Friday for some drinks and was talking to a friend I hadn't seen in a while. We were both complaining about the level of the music and that there was no where to sit. I think at 36 I am past spending the night standing up and shouting. The bill splitting is always dreadful. £150 short is loads! I can't believe your guests was have left MATV to pick it up! Very bad form. Tut. <stern look to Tipp's friends>

Hello Cass!

Faif it must be tough being on your feet all day.

The Xmas spirit is not strong in the Euro household. We were debating bothering with a tree, but ended up getting one in the end. Today we have to decorate it!

PS - I made it to 7.30am this morning, which is a big improvement on 5 or 6 am (if not exactly ideal for a sunday).

Morning all!

tipp my old colleagues were awful for that. I think the problem is no-one ever pays enough for their drinks. Last meal I went out for was a leaving do. I'd helped collect the money. We were just about there when one person said Oh we're not making x pay for her meal are we? We were then massively short! We only got away with it because we refused to pay the service charge because the service was dire. I refuse a meal invites from them now. Sorry it was a bit pants for you sad

euro I am thinking of investing in surgical stockings for the long days!
Glad you got more sleep!

Sorry you had a crappy time, Tipps. Was the dinner nice, at least?

I am confused. Droid is very definitely here, so why is my temperature still high? I feel fine, maybe the very slight beginnings of a cold, but nothing to make a real difference. <baffled>

I had a droid when diffed, draf. You know it's not impossible. You know you want to piss on a rolled up fiver...

OComeAllYeFaithBaby Sun 16-Dec-12 09:34:36

I had a high temp one morning but then droid arrived that afternoon draf. Really pissed me off! Two options - either it'll drop tomorrow or if its not that heavy, could be implant bleeding? Is it normal droid?

Can anyone say durrrrrr?! I know I'm diffed now but this still pissed me off!

evilgiraffe Sun 16-Dec-12 09:51:51

Not light, faith, it's about as heavy as I get, sadly. I think you're right, see tomorrow and then POAS if need be, a la norf.

Morning! Feeling a bit sore headed today. Nothing too awful though. Was very cross last night but apart from one person everyone just said they would pay more in. It's fair enough but one friend just got really arsey about it MATV said he'd cover her difference and she took even more offence, it just made it awkward. Anyway, it's done now and the meal itself was amazing, really nice food. Then we had a few drinks in a pub down the road and that was nice smile

I'm hoping not to be so emotional this week, was a right mess last week with the blummin clomid. Damn stuff.

That stupid woman needs a slap. No one is taking much notice of her. Why don't people just poas before they start a thread that then makes them look like a bellend??

Morning! tipps sorry you didn't have a good night. I'm a but angry too about such things...I rarely drink on works nights as we live rurally and its a total pain so I was most miffed that at my night on Fri they were knocking back fizz, Irish coffees, wine etc and then split the bill equally...forty bloody quid and I only had two soft drinks with dinner! And then they had the cheek to try to get more for the tip. Have also been on nights where people throw down money when the bill comes and its obvious someone hadn't paid ...shits

OComeAllYeFaithBaby Sun 16-Dec-12 11:27:49

She actually did a thread in Pregnancy too. My response was Erm, contraception is only effective when you take it as prescribed. POAS you Stoopid woman <channels René frl
Allo allo>

WinklyVersusTheZombies Sun 16-Dec-12 11:43:09

That woman is an idiot. I'm sure she's aware condoms don't work if you leave them In the box (or do they? Is that where I've gone wrong?) so why would the pill?

Makes me angry too tipsy. The unfortunate soul tasked with arranging our Christmas do has gone to enormous lengths to ensure that won't happen - prepaid set meal & email instructing everyone to bring coins for service charge & only to order drinks at the bar not on a tab.

Had a major sechs ban fail last night blush So much for a menkul free Christmas.

Have we decided on a new feem?

Northey Sun 16-Dec-12 12:04:59

It's either Victorian gentlemen or some sort of Terminator thing, I think. I vote for Victorian gentlemen as it's more Christmassy and Terminator is a bit close to zombies.

SinkyMalinks Sun 16-Dec-12 13:25:11

I also vote for Victorian Gentlemen. I'm growing my moustache specially.

Tipps, that sort of meal behaviour drives me crazy. My friends are good and all behave, but previously have had the misfortune of nights like that. Once it was ridiculous, and I told everyone to take their money back, and we would do it one at a time (that was a group of about 12 but there was a £200 shortfall!). I got no money back from the pile in the middle, ie, someone took out more than they put in!!

I don't see them anymore.

Who's doing fred then?

SinkyMalinks Sun 16-Dec-12 14:11:01

Anyone seen the "tingling sensation on tongue" thread? Usual poor sod menkulling about random symptoms, but the replies are so odd! Actually made me snigger out loud (not quite lol territory)

EuroShagmore Sun 16-Dec-12 14:24:10

draf I've had a few cycles where my temp has fallen after droid's arrival, just to fuck with me (including the last weird (chem preg???)) cycle.

sinky that's outrageous! I kind of have the opposite problem. We were all quite poor as studes, so now we are relatively and in some cases very flush, everyone tries to pay for the whole thing!

WinklyVersusTheZombies Sun 16-Dec-12 16:22:20

Ok I have been brave and created the new fred...
