Dear Mumsnet
Flavour is how we roll in the UK. On discussions of the day we appear to have veered stateside with flavor. I'm bristling. We'll be doing the math next.

Dear StarSpotter

MN might be based in the UK, but there a MNers all over the world!

(Or have you spotted a missing u in a post that's clearly home-grown? In which case you ANBU!)

Dear Optimistletoe1

The OP of the thread in question spells it with the 'u' in place, so it should be spelt that way in the discussion of the day list!

It's in discussions of the day. It needs a u.

We are off to the center of the universe on Thurs where I will be pounding the sidewalks and the mall looking for pants for my kids which I will put in the trunk of my car before taking them for their favorite flavor of Starbucks. We'll throw our garbage in the trash can before taking the elevator to see a movie in the multiplex.

I saw the missing 'u' too.
I bristled too.

See how organized I am grin

Good LORD that was hard work.

usualsuspect333 Tue 16-Dec-14 20:32:50

I have to correct my spell checker.

Don't forget to take a fanny pack.

Yeah Scone to hold my wallet and my cell phone - it will save me carrying a purse. grin

I'm trying to figure out how to work 'parking lot' and 'interstate' into my narrative but I'm too tired!

It needs taking off of the front page.

Oh bugger! I must learn to RTFT!!!

One of those MN video recipes has measurements in cups, too, so I can actually figure out how to make the damn thing.

Pretty sure this was a typo - will amend soonest
Thanks SO much for the heads up
Scone - which recipe is measuring in cups? Is it not a cup recipe??

StarSpotter Tue 16-Dec-14 21:06:18

Thank you puts down spelling arrow

It's the microwave cheese sauce one, Olivia.

Well it's all part of the flavor of MN isn't it, it adds color to the site rather than being all gray. Do the math, quite a lot of MN is from the US.

Just because there are some Americans on here doesn't mean we should approve of all their funny new world ways.
