sorry to ask...
after 6 months here, I still haven't figured out what the "crepey" thread is for/about.....

<hangs head in shame>
<hopes kind MNer will explain>

I thought it was a bunch of similarly aged people who have a thread going?????? Crepey referring to skin? I'm kind of with you on the confusion though.

I wondered too...confused

Crepey throat, more specifically - I think they came to the consensus that nothing could be done, but stayed on to chat instead. will be joining them in a few years

Oh Im glad you asked. I wasnt totally sure either and Ive been hanging around for years!

lorelei9 Thu 03-Dec-15 17:06:29

oh right
I'm rapidly heading for crepey cleavage but didn't see any S&B chat on there so was confused!

I wondered this too. Their thread titles are always very witty.

Well thanks OP for asking, I felt I was the only on who didn't get it! But the conversation never makes sense to me? What else am I missing?

Never really understood it either other than just so unnecessarily cliquey and schoolgirl playground-y

and really really so try-hard to be oh so witty and we are so so funny aren't we

Me neither.

Simple really, the Crepeys are just an ever-shifting group of MNers, of a certain age (mid-40s and up), who somehow came together on a thread.

In the original thread, a few years ago, the OP compained about feeling a little "crepey", as in slightly saggy and wrinkly, and asked for a few coping strategies. Now we just waffle on about our lives, our challenging teens, sickly parents, aches and pains, with the odd bit of S&B thrown in. We've met up several times, and become good friends.

Crepeys come and Crepeys go....and we're definitely NOT cliquey! I love it when new people join in.

Some of the Crepeys are funny, though - quite a few journos and clever people with good turns of phrase.

That's it,

It's been 4 and a half years since the original Crepey thread. And we were Hagsnet for a while at the beginning. smile

ninared I've never posted on the thread in question but I think that's uncalled for.
