Bibbity's thread.....

(54 Posts)
FellatioNelson Sat 01-Oct-11 07:03:19

about a thread about toxic families seems to have gone this morning.

Was it pulled? Did something dastardly happen last night that I missed, or did it just quietly slip away? What I don't understand is why that one is gone, but tuther one is still there.


Pagwatch Sat 01-Oct-11 07:08:44

I bloody hope it hadn't gone. Or that there is good reason if it has.

That thread was measured and constructive and I personally shared some personal stuff because people were trying to unpick complex, conflicting situations.

I can't find it. Why has it gone?

FellatioNelson Sat 01-Oct-11 07:18:30

Why are we up, Pag? grin

Pagwatch Sat 01-Oct-11 07:23:41

Dd has swimming from 7 until 9 on a Saturday.
In the name of fuck, why did I say yes to that one.

I have coffee. I have wifi. I have a 'teach your child to read' thread of monstrous fuckwittery that I am trying not to look at. I'm all set.

And you?

FellatioNelson Sat 01-Oct-11 07:28:46

Well I'm all for waking up early, and fannying around on MN while the rest of the world sleeps, but actually gettin up and doing anything constructive that involves going out of the house, NO NO NO. This is why my children have always been discouraged in the most vociferous terms from ever getting involved with a horse. Good job I didn't have a girl - it might have been a lot harder then.

So we will have to wait for everyone else to get up to solve the Bibbity thread mystery. Perhaps that angry person on the other thread took umbrage.

It is frustrating though isn't it.

In spite of very strong opinions it was mostly being discussed rationally but disappears. Some wankers being sanctimonious and thick about teaching your feotus to read makes you a Better Parent and it stays there forever.

The virtue of leaving the house is coffee and wifi. Dh is up at home with shit hurling puppy and the kitchen to clean grin

FellatioNelson Sat 01-Oct-11 07:33:16

What breed is your puppy? The same as the other one? Actually, not sure what the other one is either. Apart from Fluffy.

FellatioNelson Sat 01-Oct-11 07:35:14

Foetus reading? confused Ok. Must look at that. I've never understood the point of baby 'signing' myself. Is that not what talking was invented for?

Pagwatch Sat 01-Oct-11 07:35:56

Oh kick your dh. That is not on.
Get your hair done and a face iron. That isn't a real thing but it should be. I would buy one. I have saginess encroaching parts of my body that were fairly taut just weeks ago. Life is mean.

You will soon relax when the move is over. It's all the preparation that must be draining

Pagwatch Sat 01-Oct-11 07:37:09

grin yes both fluffy.

Big dog is an old english. Little dog is bischon. Little dog looks like something big dog threw up.

they can stand one under the other like a nest of side tables.

Pagwatch Sat 01-Oct-11 07:42:14


<<sweeping hand gesture>> " and these are just a few of the sizes available. We have more in the back"

Btw, it isn't really foetus reading. But while nice people are exchanging polite views some arse holes keep coming on and posting things like " I just find it sad that some parents don't love their kids enough to help them. Such a shame they can't be bothered "
Cock heads

FellatioNelson Sat 01-Oct-11 07:51:42

Oh yes. I am reading it now. I see what you mean. Although I would not put it past somebody on MN to eventually come up with the cunning idea of teaching a foetus to read. Can't prepare 'em early enuff for brilliance and world domination yer know. Life's a competition and all that.

FellatioNelson Sat 01-Oct-11 07:53:38

Right. I really have to go in the shower now, otherwise my aim of arriving at the hairdressers as they open the doors (so I can be in and out again before I get caught up in shopping crowds) will be a big fail.

You just ruined my "have bad cold, am dying swan" act on the sofa, with giggles.

Thanfully giggles provoked a coughing fit.

So all is not lost.

Pagwatch Sat 01-Oct-11 08:07:47

Oh sympathies. Hope you feel better.
And happy to help grin

Anniegetyourgun Sat 01-Oct-11 08:25:56

In regard to the deleted thread of which you speak (posh eh?), spies inform me that some invaders got very unpleasant to one particular, highly respected poster. (Take a peek at the EA thread.) Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately for my blood pressure, I did not see what they said, just that it was nasty and personal.

Re the early reading debate, my mum would no doubt have had me reading in the womb if the technology existed in those days.

Blueberties Sat 01-Oct-11 08:28:11

It was deleted because it was a thread about a thread, according to Rebecca or Helen. Rebecca I think.

Blueberties Sat 01-Oct-11 08:32:13

And I didn't report it.

Pagwatch Sat 01-Oct-11 08:33:23


Fucking typical
A) that tossers turn up and
B) that an attempt to depersonalise a situation and talk about the general issues around it gets deleted.


tethersend Sat 01-Oct-11 08:35:13

I have nothing to add, other than I agree about baby signing.

Many of DD's first words had "you sign" in front of them (cheers Mr. Tumble) but her hands stayed perfectly still.

FellatioNelson Sat 01-Oct-11 08:35:37

I didn't see any personally directed nastiness at all. did it happen last night when I was out stuffing my face with chinese food?

I think that 'thread about a thread' thing is a bit of a piss poor excuse. It was allowed to stand for a couple of days with thread about a thread very clearly in the title.
