Am I the only one that was slightly disappointed?

It was the use of the word 'too' when he meant 'two' that clinched it for me pedantic bitch that I am

It's like spending a pre-child weekend with someone that you've just met. You were only meant to have a dinner date but have spent the entire fucking weekend together; discussing all the things that you amazingly have in common and exchanging tales. The sex has progressed from vaguely awkward and new to mind blowingly awesome, and as you're sat together having a post-coital cigarette on the Sunday morning, basking in his glow, he casually mentions that he has to leave soon to go lead a pro-BNP rally....

Now THAT'S a webchat. Cannot believe I missed it. Urrgh!

I did slavishly go and buy his book, though. grin
Charlie Brooker is like every MNers hero. He seriously needs to come back and join under a different name: I also think he'd fit right in.
Thanks for dropping by our little hovel corner of the world Charlie!

Am asking DH to buy me book for christmas simply because he stayed until nearly half 1, with no mention of the fatc he had got sucked in overrun.

Think i've changed my mind (and that was just the DC / tories are evil stuff)

Good webchat

Please, please, please can MN publicise future chats more? I'm on several times a day and I never saw that this was imminent! Gutted!

It's been stickied at the top of Active Conversations since last Thursday. Do you have thread stickies turned off in your options?

Or, alternatively, Charlie said he didn't want to talk to you, so we all kept it a secret... grin

(actually, it may have only been stickied since the weekend, come to think of it. I think it was a normal thread on Thursday)

I do the 'last 15 mins' thingey... must look at altering my MN patterns/options.,..

Nice one mumsnet, I really enjoyed reading that...

Is there anything we can realistically do about the abuse of power by dishonest police officers? The IPC is a sick joke..

southeastastra Sat 10-Apr-10 14:25:20
