Please don't all jump down my throat, but am I the only one who is finding GN so boring at the moment.
I am hoping it is holiday season and people being busy with GC but I am not enjoying it and yes I know I should be starting sparkling new threads of my own. I just can't think of anything in my mundane life to interest anyone else.

Well, I asked about Morecambe, ann, what more do you want? And, before that, it was egg slicers. Honestly, there's no pleasing some people!! grin

Teetime Tue 29-Aug-17 12:08:34

Shall I revive my vibrator thread?

Ana Tue 29-Aug-17 12:11:53

Only if you want it to be fed to FB and Twitter!

merlotgran Tue 29-Aug-17 12:17:33

Everyone's holding back now but to be fair it was getting really boring before the facebook/twitter furore.

Teetime Tue 29-Aug-17 12:17:56

Don't care I use both all the time.

Ana Tue 29-Aug-17 12:19:55

I agree, Merlot.

The answer to that is 'write something interesting' yourself annsixty. I find it varied and enjoy reading the posts and occasionally contributing. Not all the posts are my cup of tea but we're all so different which is part of GN.

kittylester Tue 29-Aug-17 12:23:33

Both what's Teetime!! shock

The FB Twitter thing should make no difference as that was the way of things previously!! confused

kittylester Tue 29-Aug-17 12:33:33

Erroneous apostrophe there - rather spoilt the joke!!

devongirl Tue 29-Aug-17 12:37:01

I agree with you, annsixty, was just thinking that at the weekend!

MissAdventure Tue 29-Aug-17 12:38:32

Another here who is finding it a bit sparse. I'm off to answer the thread about hanging my washing out now..

annsixty Tue 29-Aug-17 12:44:00

Oh I had missed that pearl of wisdom, off to read it now and I have an idea for another thread involving money.

Gemmag Tue 29-Aug-17 12:49:33

Can't wait!

Primrose65 Tue 29-Aug-17 12:57:36

There was a thread about egg slicers? Damn, I missed that.

Teetime Tue 29-Aug-17 13:13:14

You can slice eggs? aren't they a bit runny? smile

annsixty Tue 29-Aug-17 13:36:19

I have posted my new thread!!
Washing and egg slicers.. I miss all the exiting threads😂😂

Sooo many games on the Active page.
I like the humour of the argy bargy thread but don't feel able to contribute.
We definitley need more sillyness/fun/humour

lemongrove Tue 29-Aug-17 15:04:42

Why not to contribute ninathenana it's a fun thread for all.🍷

Grannyknot Tue 29-Aug-17 15:49:56

What ... aren't the political threads interesting then!? grin

Oriel Tue 29-Aug-17 15:56:19

I passed on the egg slicer one - that was a step too far... but I did comment on the washing one - tis a bit worrying!!! grin

kittylester Tue 29-Aug-17 16:35:28

But, how do people slice their eggs?

ninathenana Tue 29-Aug-17 16:44:10

lemongrove I don't feel my contributions would be funny enough.

Marydoll Tue 29-Aug-17 17:28:14

I too feel GN has been lacking a bit of a spark recently
Nina, please pop into the Argy Caff. You will be most welcome. We just write whatever rubbish comes in to our heads. It's a bit of light relief for some of us, who have quite stressful lives.
NO-ONE will criticise you you for your opinion or what you write, unlike some other threads.
