Just watched Fleabag on the train. I sort of enjoyed it, I sort of cringed a bit about how horrible some of it was.

New thread! Yippee!

Watching Fleabag, BA very pleasing to the eye, had to freeze frame and rewind a few times!

rhu can't be real teeth? Can they? It is funny. Done know if BA is in any more or just the beginning?

Woohoo a new thread, just marking my spot. And double woohoo my Fleabag On Demand has just flashed up "This programme is available to start viewing". Back in a mo...

MaddieMoo82 Thu 21-Jul-16 19:09:21

Arghhhhh I wanna see it now!!! hmm

cjwoofwoof Thu 21-Jul-16 19:17:23

Well all I laughed at was Rhus comment re the teeth. Found it all a bit weird tbh, but the first two minutes were worth all the confused afterwards

moojangles Thu 21-Jul-16 19:21:24

Obviously love the BA bits, not too sure on the rest yet

His name is Jamie Demetriou ... Google images of him smile lots are with his mouth shut though wink

Need the kids to go to bed ... They don't want to ...aaaaaaagh!!!

Thanks Nickel. Having perused the pictures I reckon the teeth are false too as his mouth looks a different shape when it is shut! I think in Fleabag it was difficult for him to shut his mouth at all. This is starting to sound like the debate concerning low slung combats isn't it.

Not sure why I found it funny but possibly because I thought I wouldn't like it and I am pretty weird anyway.

moojangles Thu 21-Jul-16 20:23:57

our internet connection iffy again today, think I spent too much time dicking about with itbto really get into fleabga, will try again tomorrow.
ice and ilove hope all went well today

The boyfriend Harry was in the C4 comedy show The Windsors which was quite funny.

Is it me or were BAs front teeth odd too? I don't remember such a pronounced gap in my many hours of close OG study before?? Hair was a touch Guinea pig again too, but I'm still happy with him on the whole grin

Just spoke to mum, all went well today.

Have watched the first feelings of Fleabag a few times now.

pixieg1rl Thu 21-Jul-16 21:55:56

Glad to hear it went well today ice.

I do think there's humour in Fleabag, some of the situations, or the teeth etc are initially funny, but it's also sad and a bit uncomfortable. She's obviously hurt and struggling and sad, and the men are either pretty exploitative of this (arsehole man), emotionally absent (her dad), and teeth man is a bit of a harmless knob and she doesn't like him, but she's going to sleep with him anyway. She can see the vulnerability in the drunk woman she helps into the taxi, but she's ignoring it in herself. It's one of those anti-heroine things, but you feel a bit bad for finding it funny when you think about it.

Evening everyone. I've not had chance to watch Fleabag properly but after your comments earlier today, I have watched the first few minutes with BA and a bit beyond that. Hmmm, will watch it all properly again tomorrow.

The mammogram was predictably painful. The radiographer sympathetically told me that only ladies with small busts find the process uncomfortable - clearly she wouldn't feel it comfortable as she was on the large side with a good 42" bust I would imagine. My friend had hers the other day - she said it didn't hurt a bit but with she's a 44 JJ so yes, I understand that!

Glad your Mum went on ok today ice - from what I remember from my Mum's treatment, the first one was the worst as she didn't really know what to expect but it was easier after that.

Nipped to the supermarket about 8 pm tonight. It's about 4 miles away. As I came out, it was torrential rain but got home to find it hadn't rained at all!

Ilovelblue Thu 21-Jul-16 22:32:22

clearly she wouldn't feel it uncomfortable I meant.

MaddieMoo82 Thu 21-Jul-16 22:39:54

Glad it went ok for your mum today ice
Finally got round to watching fleabag and although I found it awkward to watch in parts and sad I really enjoyed it. BA certainly helped... Those curls are gorgeous smile
Bet your glad your home pix and hope DS and MrP were pleased to see you.

MaddieMoo82 Thu 21-Jul-16 22:40:56

And no rhu those teeth can't be real can they?!!

pixieg1rl Thu 21-Jul-16 22:48:44

Well, within 30 minutes of being home I had dealt with a nosebleed, been requested to sit in on a poo (DS likes company) and did a the bath, so I would say I've been missed. I've definitely missed my cuddles.

cjwoofwoof Thu 21-Jul-16 22:49:56

Just twigged he's labelled as Bus Rodent...hence the teeth

Nickel45 Thu 21-Jul-16 23:30:37

Finally watched it, damn RL getting in the way! Loved it. I think PWB is one clever lady!

Might just need to check BAs teeth a few more times, just so I can comment woof 😀 ....

ice glad it all went well today.
ilove my mammogram didn't hurt at all ... So I'm feeling well endowed! 😀 hope you are all ok now though.

Nickel45 Thu 21-Jul-16 23:54:03

Here you go. Teeth pictures to compare ....

Hola from sunny Spain! smile

Can't watch fleabag over here. Iplayer won't load with Spanish server so will have to wait till I'm back. Thanks for the pics in the meantime!!

Hello all - just checking in before I get into holiday mode. Been awol for a while, still reading but trying to spend less time online. I've even started couch to 5k which is huge for me as I haven't exercised since about 2001. I turn 50 next year and decided I need to get a grip before it's too late. Did last run of week 4 at 7am (get me!) this morning!

Sorry to hear about your mum Ice, that's really tough. Glad the treatment is under way.

I totally agree that mammograms hurt like hell! I'm a DD/E so not tiny.

That picture of BA on a motorcycle at the end of the last thread - is that a still from Fleabag (haven't watched it yet)? It must have been taken pretty close to where I live as the estate agent board you can see is a very local firm! Must stay alert for a sighting at all times!

Must go - pre-holiday food shop beckons. We do 3 weeks self catering and I try and take food with us to get us through the first few days.

Bye for now

Alwaysfrank Fri 22-Jul-16 08:27:40

Actually Nickel where did you find that picture? I see it was posted pre-fleabag. Definitely taken somewhere in my borough!

Ilovelblue Fri 22-Jul-16 10:29:42

Enjoy your holidays Always and Jen. What's the weather like in your part of Spain Jen?

Thanks Nickel you really know how to make a girl feel inadequate grin. OK, only joking!!

Am convinced that if men had their bits pressed between two metal plates like you have for a mammogram, they'd find a better way of doing the procedure!

Have watched Fleabag again from the beginning, not just the BA scenes, and am sure that if he hadn't been in it, it's not something I would have chosen to watch. It was quite funny in parts but also very sad that she seems to have such low esteem. I wonder if more about her early years will come out in the next episode. Have to agree that BA looked quite delicious though.

Having lunch with a friend today (been on holiday since Wednesday) and then have decided to repaint my shed. It's a boring brown at the moment so I've decided to go more upmarket and the colour is Wild Thyme. Hope I like it once it goes on!
