A thread was set up yesterday by me as i was just wondering where the DAD'S go to chat on this website??? to introduce dh to it.

It would appear after much chatting that there aren't any threads, but there are dad's out there somewhere!!

Member Molton emailed team...
who said there not sure there are sufficient dads to warrant a section - but they'll discuss it at their next team meeting
see ...
Relationships: Is there a DAD thead section on this website????(29 messages)

So this thread is basically just for Dad's to make themselves known!!! if they want to!!

Or for mum's to try and persuade their partner's to come on and have a chat.

Dad's what?

hub2dee Wed 17-May-06 14:46:13

Behave cd.

Pater here.

There have been a few threads with 'who are the men' over the years. Mostly we just scuttle about MN quietly, fixing PCs etc. LOL.

PS - Blueamema, I nominate myself as puncutation pedant of the moment and gently advise you that your apostrophes are in a state of disarray. (I am not usually this arsey btw). More than one dad gives rise to a gaggle of dads. (Note no apostrophe). A dad might own a football (or a sewing kit). These are dad's things. (Note the apostrophe). Dads often have chores, such as taking out the bin, which we try and escape from doing. Those are dads' chores (in reference to the gaggle, not to one dad on his own).

(By f*ck I hope I've got that all correct. Will someone pleased tell me if I have erred and feel free to individually chastise me for being so rude).

Only in your typing of punctuation hub.

ROFL at hub fixing PCs. Please note, only of the Mac variety, he hates Windows.

And before you ask blueamema, despite the name I am a mum not a dad

MarsLady Wed 17-May-06 14:57:15

Yes you are always that arsey.... lol

You can't spell punctuation or please and you didn't fix my PC.

You are a terrible man!

Thanks Bozza. I am nominating you as my co-pedant as you did not deem it necessary to correct any of my text and so if I'm wrong, we sink together. LOL.

Yes, PCs make me vomit big time. Apples make me warm inside. Oh, btw, new (cheaper) laptops just out. Very fast, built in camera for video chat and as multimedia-friendly as always.

hub2dee Wed 17-May-06 14:59:18

Get back in the kitchen, Mars. You are a blemish on the landscape of civilisation that is MN.

People: She baked a lemon drizzle keep for dw and I and she didn't put any feckin' DRIZZLE on it. That's like a war crime. Or sommit.

hub2dee Wed 17-May-06 14:59:47

Oh, and are you back in the land of live PCs ?

blueamema Wed 17-May-06 14:59:47

thanks hub2dee for that!!!

hub2dee Wed 17-May-06 15:00:30

Hmmm, no smiley, but no 'w@nker'... I think she's alright with it....


SaintGeorge Wed 17-May-06 15:01:14

A lemon drizzle keep?

Is that castle shaped with little crenellations (sp?) all over it?

TambaTheDragonSlayer Wed 17-May-06 15:01:32

<< Hub, when do you get to see more piccies of your beautiful baby? >>

And re lemon drizzle cake... think yourself lucky you got any!!

TambaTheDragonSlayer Wed 17-May-06 15:02:07

when do we

hub2dee Wed 17-May-06 15:04:24

That's one word St. George should really be able to spell, LOL.

Soon, Tamba, soon...

SaintGeorge Wed 17-May-06 15:06:52

I know (hangs head in saintly shame).

Then again, the StG name is so far from the real me that I am allowed lapses.

thewomanwhothoughtshewasahat Wed 17-May-06 15:34:05

MarsLady Wed 17-May-06 15:38:57

I have never baked a keep in my life!

Yes, I'm currently on a borrowed laptop... until I replace my dead, defunct, waste of space PC. Have emailed you..... though why I bother... I mean talk about ingratitude..... a keep I ask you. A keep!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
