no, but someone I know in real life came up to me one day and said "I know who you are, you're Dinosaur"!

There is a cluster of Mnetters who live around where I used to live. One day I'll return to that area and wouldn't be the least bit surprised if I recognised someone at a Meet Up. In fact when I met essbee last year we both kind of looked at each other and had a feeling we had seen each other somewhere before, which theoretically was possible, ...spooky !

Dino - didn't you discover that a MN was meeting your DH in the park? (I don't mean that quite how it sounds!)

dinosaur Thu 31-Mar-05 17:11:58

yes...hoxtonchick met my dh and ds2 in a local park, and, blabbermouth that I am, was able to "match them up" with me!

not at a meet up, but somebody I was pals with at uni turned up on here!

Someway I think somebody around here may have recognised me. I know she is a mumsnetter but I have no idea what her mumsnate ID could be.

On another board I met someone from work. We'd had no idea we worked in the same department (and in fact had never met before at work).

i discovered after joining this board and being on a thread about schools that i went to school (same year, same classes) as nutcracker and that while we were there, coddy was a teacher!
