Is this a mad way to start?

What about people who ran along the "porn"?

It's D's birthday, I have bought him a 3D Spiderman cake!

Um, um, I mean I have MADE him a 3D Spiderman cake and crafted a bit of packaging to go around it.

So why did the checkout guy say it would be great for a 47 year old ?

Because it's a very cool cake...

Ah... I always take my cooking to the shops for a little appreciation

Is it SO wrong to be bored by the durge in here now? I've just answered a new (pretty illiterate thread) with a play on the illiteracy. BUT I just feel that we're losing interest here because you have to be super NICE and super TOUCHY FEELY and EVERYONE is SPECIAL and CAN DO.

It's never been my motivation for posting on this site.

I DRAMATICALLY SHOUTED in places there, and it FELT good, for those that absorb CAPITAL letters like a shot to the soul.

And also the rather bizarre locking of the 2013 kit thread hasn't helped. Jeez, just get a bit of conversation happening and let people have their opinions. We're grown adults (except for the really short people like Debbo), stop running to RW Towers, because you know I won't... It's really petty.

My question is, are people really so dependant on the Internet for their 'persona', 'self esteem' etc...

That on a really gentle and friendly forum, they are so incensed that they have to protect their projected 'identity' by running to RW Towers and complaining? It's never been in our history to do that, not at all.

Yet another reason why regulars are leaving here in spades.

Yes, yes, I was in 'rant about things that aren't really important mode' last night, it's a sign that my stress levels are rising about things that are more important.

At least I realise that, I just have to keep my head down (impossible) and work through the busy times.

Good news is that I get to flexi off early to pick the kids up from school, if the traffic is good I'll even get to see the tail end of J's free assembly.

Mate's birthday tonight, so she's coming round for drinkies, twinkies and thinkies.

Swim waves for the first race in the series almost completed (weight off mind).

And a good end to the working week, I managed to get off early and get to free assembly and pick my girls up from school. Then I took the de-benched Coleman for a run, a really cold and wet run... But having not run for over a week, he was tail up and literally pulling me round.

Oh, and GO Murray!

Ok, here's something I've never understood. Why do grown adults type in 'baby talk' when on forums?

kittenkat    pirate

I've never used baby talk, even when my kids were babies.

Cue the whole psych wing, when it was started by Haille, Mark, Lurker etc.. It was interesting.

Now it's dominated by adult women talking about blankets and their own insecurities in baby language.

I'm sheer delight on toast when I start to get a bit stressy, and I've run out of Marmite.

Have the in-laws for the weekend as it's E's play tonight. The house is a tip and I've got no food in so that will need sorting sharpish.

Right, I've got over the 11th hour diverting my stress to crappy stuff and I'm back on task dealing with what actually I'm erm... avoiding. Ironically for someone so direct as me, it's actually being direct with something professional. But sometimes you have to have the conversations people don't like to hear, to do your job properly. Whatever anyone thinks of my persona on here, I like people and am actually very measured and sure before I go into difficult discussions in person.

But in better news, we're all primed to go and see E in her Grease performance tonight. It's a whole themed night with 50's food and music and when I dropped her off I looked at the other reserved tables and we're in good company. Time to kick back.
