I'm just going to apologise for tomorrow's Roundup

I've REALLY buggered about with lots of your quotes

You know, for coherency mainly: you say "It" when REALLY the paragraph needs it to say "TK Maxx" or it makes no SENSE or "Her" and it REALLY must say "Your mother"

So basically I'm making it up and I'm apologising now

Hope that's okay

I'm in a rush now because there is a massive storm and the lights and flickering

Yes BIWI you are only 'quite funny'
you obv need to try harder!!!

weegiemum · 25/06/2009 21:48

I'd like to be able to write something witty/sarcastic/smarmy enough to get in the roundup but basically thats never going to happen unless you quote this

OhYouBadBadKitten · 25/06/2009 21:49

wish we had a storm!

diffID, me too! I just don't understand why my riveting weather posts don't make it in!

TrillianAstra · 25/06/2009 21:50

I'll come to your quiche diff.

differentID · 25/06/2009 21:50

Kitten, you're welcome to the bloody things! I hate them.

FAQinglovely · 25/06/2009 21:51

well I'm not bothered - as I am never in it either

TrillianAstra · 25/06/2009 21:51

MP - thunder sounds pretty exciting, it's very hot and muggy here, needs a good storm. (plus is traditional for this time of year)

GodzillasBumcheek · 25/06/2009 21:52're all arse kissers innit

you'd never get me doing something like that

poorbuthappy · 25/06/2009 21:54

you have my permission to make up a quote for me as I long to be in the weekly roundup!
Just fill in any old gap...

Thunder! Lovely, its bloody hot here too and would like a slight break from it (am in garden in pjs scaring the neighbours!)

SolidGoldBrass · 25/06/2009 21:54

Turn your computer off, MP. Or the Thunderpixies will get in and bugger up all your files...

(Actually, does anyone know if it's truly ot a good idea to leave computers on during thunderstorms? I was told that this could be Baaaad and when one of my old machines up and died for no reason I did suggest to the bloke in the computer shop that a lightning strike had somehow travelled up the cabling and eaten a dataprocessor or somesuch. He looked at me with a bit of a smacked-arse face and said 'Well it will be £20 to fix it...)

hunkermunker · 25/06/2009 21:55

LOL at the Hunker-flushing - you've done it again, Aitch

AitchTwoOh · 25/06/2009 21:57

i thangyew.

MaureenMLove · 25/06/2009 22:01

I know you've already gone, what with the storm and that, but I just wanted to say, I think your Roundups are so bloody fantastic, you can do what you like if it makes it even funnier.

OhYouBadBadKitten · 25/06/2009 22:05

it is really a crap idea to leave computers on, and tellys.

Neighbours all had fried computers, tellies and phones a couple of years ago when we had a hit nearby. Our stuff was fine.

And.... don't lean against radiators to watch storms. Can testify personally to that one. Was a shocking experience

BCNS · 25/06/2009 22:06

the only reason i ever got into a round up.. was because I had a bloody omlette stuck up my nose!

must have been a slow week!

OhYouBadBadKitten · 25/06/2009 22:07
BCNS · 25/06/2009 22:07

OYBK.. does it still affect them ( comps) if they are wireless??..

LundyBancroftatemyhusband · 25/06/2009 22:09

Or Nor!!!

MP this doesn't mean i am finally after 2 and a bit YEARS here I am in the roundup for somethign? Does it? reeeeally??

SolidGoldBrass · 25/06/2009 22:09

My brother got struck by lightning leaning on the doorframe...

PerfectPrefect · 25/06/2009 22:10

As long as it has the flying rats in it doesn't really matter....

OhYouBadBadKitten · 25/06/2009 22:10

If it was a really close hit I suppose you might get some induced current?? but the biggest problem would be the wireless router. Which tbh isn't that expensive to replace. Def a safer option I'd have thought.

weegiemum · 25/06/2009 22:12

BCNS - an omelette up your nose?

That's impressive!

ingles2 · 25/06/2009 22:12

ooo.. I can tell you about computers and thunderstorms. we get hit a lot as we're isolated with a some big trees in our garden.
Last time, there was a huge crack, computer fizzed, then there was a big spark from it, a pop and all the fuses went!
Waited till the storm passed and turned it back on to discover......
nowt, all fine, all files there, no problems
p.s I know I'm far too dull for the roundups MP, but perhaps you should insert some boring stuff from me... it might put the trolls off

BCNS · 25/06/2009 22:14

yes omlette.. it was not impressive.. it was sore and rather stuck!

OhYouBadBadKitten · 25/06/2009 22:14

SGB - just goes to show!

I have to admit that ever since the radiator incident I've been a bit scared of going for a wee in storms Which is bloody annoying.
