Anyone else been here for years and are not very cool or memorable? Just wondering. I have been a member since 2005 and am not very outspoken or interesing. Who else is in the uncool gang?
I must note that I am PUI so anything I say may be held against me and I am sure tomorrow I will check in and wonder why I wrote anything.
Third glass of wine.....going down a treat. Baby is in bed and the girls are making easter egg baskets and bout to hop into bed. What are you doing?

I'm incredibly cool but I'm going to come and play in here anyway. Maybe some of my oarsumness will rub off on you and you too can be cool.

Will have to go and get DS to bed before I can start drinking though...

I have nothing to drink  cry1.gif
I am supposed to be watching neighbours but for some reason I'm having a dumb day and I forgot to tape it.
I think your little boy is very cute.

Red Ferret I can't wait to be as cool as you, you will have to show me the ropes when it comes to coolness. I was cool once, but that was a long time ago.

I had a massive boozy work lunch I am still recovering from (by ordering pizza and reading the internet, obvs). Enjoy your wine!

I am not very memorable on here - I am more of a lurker. An EB voyeur, you might say. I suspect it is because I am not very good in writing, but effortlessly cool in real life... This could be a similar delusion to the one where I am 'unphotogenic' i.e. far more attractive than any photo of me in existence would suggest.

Oh well, at least I know I'm cool and gorgeous!  tongue.gif

I'm a complete dag (see, I even use words like dag) but I am about to hit the vino collapso. Might come in and PUI later...

Apparently the way to be cool is just to be a dirty little rodent ph34r.gif   tongue.gif

Yes I'm pretty sure it is illegal. DF has some wierd light beers but I'm not a beer fan.

Don't these babies just grow so fast!!!! DD is 8 months, it has gone too quickly.

RumbleBee, I know exactly what you mean. I am super cool in real life, but on here I'm not. I can't type out what I want to say in a way that is either witty, smart, eloquent or interesting.

Wrangler..hop on it! What are you drinking? Sav Blanc here.
