RE: Perfect pairs!!

Yeah, he's gone awful quiet and uncommunicative recently.

Happen it's the snorkel. laugh

RE: Perfect pairs!!

I'm taking the piss, DeeDee, and that's as affectionate as I get.

I've just found out he once had a pet he was emotionally attached enough to, to take to the vets and he's gone up in my estimations. laugh

RE: Perfect pairs!!

Mike doesn't need all of me.

I could just hand over my knockers and he'd be as happy as a pig in shit.

RE: Perfect pairs!!

Lord, no.

I just want to know because hearing aids do this nasty feedback thing close to solid objects.

He'd sound much the same as my tinnitus whining and droning on and I'm quite used to that.

RE: Perfect pairs!!

Does beating someone about the ears with a wet kipper count as domestic violence?

Just askin'. grin

Me and ChesneyChrist.

He could converse with himself and I'm a deaf git.

RE: I Got Banned from the UBT

I could put my dog on a raw food diet, but he's been dead for 12 years.

As are the other three rescue dogs I had over a 25 year period.

I have a granddaughter now: not as easy to train, probably should be kept on a leash and way too lanky to be a suitable candidate for a raw food diet. She's equally as hilarious as the dogs, mind. laugh

RE: I Got Banned from the UBT

A bit of background info: I had my dog on a reputable vegetarian dog food because anything with the tiniest amount of meat would go through him like a dose of salts and give him terrible dermatitis.

He was getting on a bit when he started passing blood in his urine, which on taking him to a vet who actually cared about animals turned out to be because of a swollen prostate gland.

Anyway, I took him to the local vets first. When he prescribed the third lot of the same antibiotics at great expense and a specialist diet at great profit to himself (with absolutely no improvement in my dog's health) I started to question his competence.

He told me my beloved first dog was ill because I was feeding him brassicas like lettuce.

I wrote to the owner of the practise and told him his employee didn't know his brassicas from his endives.

I was banned after that. giggle

My boots have got holes in them.

I'd probably be okay with that. laugh

RE: I Got Banned from the UBT

I got a lifetime ban from the local veterinary practise.

Curiouser and curiouser.

I found the posts I thought went missing, but I'm sure the homepage said there were more posts at one point.

Either there's something funny going on with CS, or I really shouldn't drink 2 glasses of wine all in one evening.

I'm not going to put that to a vote, mind. blushing laugh

RE: Forumers Rampage Against Banning

My word, Lookin'.

Oh golly, I haven't rampaged in a long time.

I meant to reply last night to say thankyou for my birthday wishes, the cakes (the poof's in the pudding) and join in with the laughter, but I fell asleep. Plainly, the excitement was all a bit much for me at my age.

I did consider banning you all, but then I'd have no one to talk to, so I'll just ban Non.

And thanks to the kindly and good humoured mod who poofed my rant, but not my birthday wishes. Stylishly done.

Perfect birthday pressie that your here, KB.

I'll put your posts alongside my other precious gifts.

(A 1920's marcasite and amethyst dragonfly brooch and a 1950's Rheinstone necklace.)

Not saying you're an antique, more a work of art.

And that's as gushy as I get. No teddy bear emotes. giggle

Ha ha, banned on my 50th birthday!

Still a rebel with a cause, eh? Despite the hearing aid and specs. laugh

Thanks for your well wishes, folks, despite my moment of rage at all that is totally skew whiff in this world.

Aah, KB.

Good timing, B. Except I've just burst into tears like a big girl's blouse. laugh

Golly, that was cathartic. hug

RE: Back on CS after a 9 yr Absence

I must have just missed you Molly.

I've been dabbling on these forums for about 8 years.

Welcome back. cswelcome

RE: Anybody here - Know how long u can stay without sleep, from experience ?

Three nights and four days - tailoring on a commissioned piece of work.

It wasn't uncommon for me at the time to be sleep deprived, but that was probably the longest stretch without sleep.

It was a good piece of work, even if I say so myself. grin

RE: Texas shooting

I wonder why this isn't being reported as an act of terrorism, for surely it must have been terrifying.

RE: Why the hate??

Hey Debs, if I wasn't using my phone we could have a post the stupidest dog video competition.

I know you'd win, you know you'd win. laugh

RE: Why the hate??

Blimey saorstat, I thought my arse was big, but Venus AND Mars...? shock giggle

There's gender stereotyping issues raised here in this thread as well as accepted gender roles - women are being portrayed as competitive, but the issue is perhaps slightly different: It's socially acceptable for men to be competitive, but women are scorned and belittled, their competitiveness reduced to petty squabbling over the attentions of men.

Competition isn't necessarily unhealthy. Through competition we may strive to achieve to our full potential, learn new things and it can be a lot of fun.

So why do we cling to a stereotype of women's competitiveness necessarily being a nasty sort of affair?

I suspect there might be social history of eliminating the competition. giggle

I find it unfortunate that people are seen as a gender, before they are seen as human beings. I don't see women hating on women. I see that some people get on well and others don't.

RE: Why the hate??

More stereotyping, freedom...? laugh

Hey, people! The skies won't burn and the trees hang with fishes if you look up from the script from time to time. yay

RE: Why the hate??

I think it's about perception.

You know that saying, if men disagree it's a discussion, if women disagree it's cat fighting and bitchiness?

Something like that - it's eons since I've heard this particular stereotyping.

Anyway, if you did a survey of the forums over time, you'll likely find people falling out left, right and centre regardless of gender combination. There might even be some surprises about who is the most hostile.
