grin Thanks Cheerful Yank - I know I was just the W nearest your post but I have never before been named in any list of MNetters - am too much of a lurker and not funny enough/controversial enough to be remembered. You made my Friday night!

Ths has to be the funniest, funniest , FUNNIEST thread ever! Got as far as the first nice ham before I collapsed in a heap of snorting, and MissHonkover's version of leave the bastard just finished me off... The weekend starts here!

CheerfulYank Fri 10-Jun-11 19:35:02

Always happy to oblige Working! I do know who you are, actually. (Not in a RL stalkerish way, of course, I mean on MN grin )

That twunt of a Bridezilla is having the wedding party take swimsuit picture and demanding that the bridal party get fanjo waxes! I put up with helping her make the centerpieces (twigs and pebbly shit, don't you know hmm ), and the sickly pink and black bunting she's insisting on having at the reception site to match the cupcakes on the headtable, but she can just bloody well leave my ladygarden out of it! Oh my jeff I hope she's part of the childfree movement, can you imagine how PFB she'd be with sprogs? AIBU to never speak to her again after this travesty of a wedding?!!

Nickel we could share?
CY you's funny lady
chaos thanks for the brilliant thread and even more brilliant typo

CheerfulYank Fri 10-Jun-11 22:51:07

<waits patiently for Miggsie to come tell me how many points I've earned for the above paragraph>

QuinionsRainbow Sat 11-Jun-11 11:15:37

Both questions must be attempted. You may write on both sides of the paper.

(1) Compare and contrast:

(2) Nobdie! Discuss.

nickelbabe Sat 11-Jun-11 11:32:25

thank you Norks <wipes tears>
that makes me very happy. smile

Miggsie Thu 16-Jun-11 12:27:01

Sorry, CY, have been distracted recently but I think I can just allow that paragraph as qualifying you as earning full marks.

You can now go to the top of the class and jump off. grin

You suspect you might be pregnant. What do you do ?
1) Buy a test
2) Go to the doctor
3) Post all your symptoms on mumsnet in thread entitled "do you think I might be PG ?"
