Just for tidiness, from the other thread

I'd like to nominate Janos's frustration at people having a go at an OP who had asked for advice dealing with a difficult employee:

By Janos on Mon 23-Feb-09 09:49:56
Why are folk still jumping on the OPs back like she's Big Brother personified?

All she's done is come on and asked for a bit of advice, she's not planning on have the woman chip and pinned, FGS.

This one from the minge in the gym thread

'your gym needs a notice, perhaps an illustration? Something along the lines of a hairdryer being used to dry a vag with a big cross through it? Very subtle but gets the message across.'

I think that was from wigglesworth - can't be bothered to check!

DD is 3 and immensely talented. To the untrained eye, her drawings of mummy and daddy look like they've been done by a demented spider dipped in paint, but personally I can see she's representing the nuanced depths of family relationships in a post modernist approach reminiscent of Pollock.

'invest in' or 'investment piece' as in
'why not invest in this £50 foundation?'
'This £15,000 handbag is a real investment piece.'

No. An ISA is an investment. A £15,000 handbag is an abomination

It's interesting though,that it is necessary to have a penis to do barbecuing. Considering the height of the average barbecue and the positioning of the average penis, I would have thought that this was seriously counter-evolutionary.....

DD inviting loads of mates back to stay overnight after girls' night out. It was supposed to be two but there has been inflation of guest numbers. If they make a noise I will go in naked dripping milk and I WILL KILL THEM!!!!

I am laughing at that dress A LOT.

"An inspirational, original poem is printed in silver on the inside neck line:
When I finally see your face,
All this waiting will be
A dream we once dreamed
You, a warm weight in my arms
A near and present love"

and my fanny in tatters. Amen.
