Gather round you lucky ladies you! I'm here to invite you not to start one thread, not two threads, not even three!

Yes indeedee! here's the chance for one of you lovely ladies to win a prize!

For the person who can revive the oldest thread, AND (wait for it, wait for it, no shoving at the back there!) make the most contentious post we will award a prize!

Extra points will be available for those who manage to subtly include the words "wombat" and/or "gusset*

(terms & conditions apply, the judges decision is final, no correspondence will be entered in to, entries with jam stains will automatically be disqualified)

I thought it was serious - I've been doing the same! confused

(Underwear ones would be good for the gusset inclusion...)

Ana Fri 28-Mar-14 21:16:18

It's OK, it's now officially the weekend. Anyway, when was the last time a thread got deleted for being about another thread? Those days have gone...(thank goodness!).

Did you carry on drinking after our lunch, Phoenix?!! grin

There have been quite a few resuscitated threads recently, though - some really old.

Soutra Fri 28-Mar-14 22:44:24

There I was thinking Frank was back and hes been outed and sent on his merry way again!

Charleygirl Fri 28-Mar-14 22:49:57

Ariadne drinking, at lunchtime?!!! I do hope that you ladies enjoyed yourselves and that the food was decent. The laughter was not too loud was it, scaring off the other clientele?

How many turned up apart from yourself and phoenix?
