One must never flounce on Christmas Eve Eve.  It's poor form.

One should acquire the necessary outfit and then find an appropriate time to flounce with as much dramatic flair as possible.

And use swear words.

It's not flouncing until we have a pic of the flouncing dress. Gotta have a pic of the flouncing dress.

Hmmm, I may have misunderstood meaning of thread.

I was looking forward to a lovely tulle laden flounce, not an 'I'm upset and leaving one. sad.gif

Want pictures of flouncing dress too please.

So is this a "YAAB and I'm leaving  flounce" or is just a thread to disccuss flouncing.


Either way, you must know that flouncing doesnt happen without The Flouncing Frock. (yes its a title)

Ooooh, flouncing frock from the boxing day sales!  Excellent call.

Failing that, just grab a wad of tinsel and wrap it around your more salient points and stomp off in a bedazzling juxtaposition of frippery and panache.

I reckon she will flounce back in with a new UN in the new year.....

I've considered flouncing.
  
Like once when I went to see my cousin Liz to discuss what to do about my surprise pregnancy (not to DF ohmy.gif ) but she couldn't care less.  It was all about her pregnancy. Sure she's about 53 and has been doing IVF for years, but she could have been more supportive.

But it's like my old mum used to say, sometimes you just have to turn the other cheek.

Do you have the proper flouncing knickers on?  All the flouncing might show a bit more than planned.  Frilly knickers might do the trick?

OP if you must flounce it must be Christmas appropriate attire, mrs Claus mini outfit would suffice don't forget the hat!


Your not really going are you OP?

Just ignore her for now.  I'm sure that the two kids will get along together just fine.  I can picture them swimming together in a river somewhere down the track.

I'm sure the OP is just getting a head of the situation. Which is sad when she could have just stuffed hers in an icebox and forgotten about it. shrug.gif

This bit made me giggle most.

Heheheheheheeeee.

Opee, opee, I hope you're ok, pleeeease show me your dress.

Is it this one?

Op, dont let one person following you around the boards upset you so badly. It really is easier to just think of them as words on a screen.
