MotherSuperiorHelenMumsnet - Sorry, have I missed something? When did that happen?

Has MN turned into a Cult* without me noticing or have you all had to take your orders of never logging into another site ever and being brides of Mumsnet?

I am guessing I've just missed something, but without Advanced Search working, I'm having to ask direct.

* To be fair, it already has some of the markings of being a cult, just without the flowing robes, strange men sitting in lotus position mainsplaining life and the promise of greatness depending on how much money you donate.

Mansplaining, not mainsplaining.


Can't even blame autocorrect for that one.

Sorry. Got diverted by the Nuns thread at the weekend and didn't change my name back. blush

KeemaNaanAndCurryOn Mon 21-Jan-13 13:27:41


I'd keep it.

Suits you grin.

I'd keep it.

Suits you grin.

Hmm. Not quite sure how to take that...

Take it as a compliment of course. Think Sound of Music...

"Climb every mountain, ban every troll..."

that kind of thing.

Is there a coup d'etat in the offing?

EmpressOfThePuddle Mon 21-Jan-13 16:15:15

Ooh yes. But if Helen is Mother Superior, who's Maria? Olivia?

KeemaNaanAndCurryOn Mon 21-Jan-13 16:19:01

# how do you solve a problem like Oliviaaaaaaaa, #

well it kind of scans, but sounds a bit mean.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 21-Jan-13 16:39:41


Doh a dear-god, another troll
Ray, a drop of throwing buns
Me, a name sock-puppets call themselves

<rearranges wimple>

KeemaNaanAndCurryOn Mon 21-Jan-13 17:03:30

Time on my hands + sound of music.

This could have promise.

Mumsnet on biscuits and childcare and kittens
Bright women talking and debating mittens
Twigs and pebbly shit tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream coloured mum boots and crisp apple streudels
Face creams and haircuts and dresses and poodles
Costume designs for my son who's a king
These are a few of my favorite things

When the troll strikes
When the site crashed
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

KeemaNaanAndCurryOn Mon 21-Jan-13 17:15:42

Rebecca, I am HOWLING with laughter here. Utter genius grin.

CarpeJugulum Mon 21-Jan-13 17:25:02

But are any of them on the run?

nannynick Mon 21-Jan-13 17:27:38

Excellent... now who will sing it and create a photo montage to fit with it so that it can become the next YouTube sensation?

EmpressOfThePuddle Mon 21-Jan-13 17:28:12

Fantastic Rebecca!
<narrows eyes>
I seem to remember you telling me you only sing when drunk....

Have you lot broken the gin out early?

MmeLindor Mon 21-Jan-13 17:28:40

I totally sung that to make sure it worked, Rebecca.


CarrieDon Mon 21-Jan-13 17:28:46
