Franny we'll sticky your thread for a bit - can't wait to hear what folks think of it [nervous emoticon]

I've asked my mate Phono to get me a signed copy from the book launch tonight next week so I'll be around to discuss it about two or three days after that.

Looking forward to it though

yah sorry Kerrymum only people I liked obviously

Most quotes aren't attributed TBH so it will be a challenge to try and spot yourself

fryalot · 02/02/2009 17:09

when I get my copy I shall go through it with various colours of highlighter pen, cross referenced with coloured index cards representing each MNer.

Ooh I just saw youtube video of Justine and is that Carrie, talking about it. How come you're both so brown and glowy? Was it filmed ages ago?

Boco · 02/02/2009 17:14

I don't mean ages ago as in years, I mean in the summer.

JustineMumsnet · 02/02/2009 17:16

What you talking about Boco? Utube? Tanned? Shurely someone else...

Boco · 02/02/2009 17:18

Hang on, who are these birds then?

what lovely ARMS you have Justine

look at Carrie with her nice hair

JustineMumsnet · 02/02/2009 17:33

Blimey - had forgotten we'd done that - never even seen it. Yes it was summer (and the tan was fake). We do sound a bit posh don't we - Carrie always goes posh on the Telly - but if she ever meets anyone from Blackburn you can't understand a word...

RustyBear · 02/02/2009 17:33

Love the way someone suddenly turned the light on 45 seconds in....

Boco · 02/02/2009 17:34

They have pretty flicky hair.

They don't have the complexions of people who frown at a computer screen all day do they. Surely body doubles then.

well i have skimmed it looking for myself read as much as i could in between rl

i like it

it's made me laugh

i did think a couple of people were obviously missing

i expect that is an inevitable thing

i hope there won't be bickering

FrannyandZooey · 02/02/2009 18:31

i did find myself wishing there was a more extensive index

eg: frannyandzooey 39, 122,

FrannyandZooey · 02/02/2009 18:33

so has no-one else got it? or is it just me that's sad enough to order in advance and flip madly through it as soon as it arrives? what's going on? we are not normally known for our retiring and laidback nature on here i would say
i would have thought if most of us knew we might be featured in a book we would be queuing outside waterstones the night before

I haven't got it (yet) but am 100% sure it is fabulous, how could it not be, it has the witty wisdom of the mners and it is complied by mp
No really, it was the pregnancy book that got me to mn and that was because it was bloody brilliant and the actual site in no way dissappointed me when I came here to investigate.
I don't expect to be in it as I don't think I contributed much to any toddler-ish bits on here, but I will still buy it because we you are all so fabulous and I will think of it as a record of my dd's early years
