lopaka, why do you think the Flintstones' theme song refers to them as "a modern stone-age family"? They were transported through time, and the names "Betty and Barney" were a hint, a clue, for those in the know.
Sorry for being a pedant but surely B&B were the Rubbles?

Coat? Why thank you!

That dress was killer. And much as I love you I hate you for being slim enough to carry off that dress and the stripey tights.
:blush:

It is a killer dress isn't it :)

Hello everyone.
I'm too shy and lurky to have *actually* interacted with any of you but if you saw a small girl with a ridicuously impractical pink coat, it was me.
Fun, wasn't it? Like most others, I think me and him Indoors want to take gail-nina home with us. Did anyone see lloyd pye lurking afterwards? I wanted to ask him about molecular biology (as I have a feeling I might know more about it than he does...hmmm)
Anyhow, facilities were splendid if a little warm, but can we have a lunchhour back next year please? ta.
I can remember a pink coat...

Dosn't everyone know more about moleculer bioligy (and indeed the proce of fish) than Mr. Pye? :D

You're forgiven. Betty & Barney were indeed surnamed "Rubble" The song was about Fred & family as misdirection. Don't you know anything about conspiracy?!

Ah, that was in a different life, M'lady :D

I always ponder the significance of both the Flintsone and the Rubbles have the same furniture and the fact that they seemed to have at least six sofas in their lounge, which was longer than most bowling alleys and of a dimension that wouldn't fit inside the exterior...

And how, when running through the house, they'd encounter the same rooms and furniture over and over.

You're all gits. I had to contend with attempted murder, you lot being rude about my scarf and my subtle new hair colour, and yet I was patience personified.

Next year I shall have worked out how to turn you all into butter and then you'll be sorry.:devil: I have a list........

I have no idea what you could be talking about Escargot. I never watch rude fillums. I may be corrupted.

Although that's an idea for what to do with the boys when I have zapped them with the blue floaty balls. I wonder if Ann Summers would be interested in Fortean Butter?

And isn't it a little early for this type of conversation?:p

And you can shut up, smarty pants. You didn't even make the effort to get to Uncon!:blah:

There was no punching or slapping or anything. If there was any untoward behaviour I think that you'll find that it was Tyger.:cool:

Might well have been me then. I realised about half way through Saturday that I didn't know what anyone looked like, so introducing myself was out of the question without looking a bit foolish...
I like Mr. Pye in a weird sort of way. I think it's sweet, the way he's so evangelical about it. But then I have a soft spot for David Farrant as well (even if he doesn't ever wash his net curtains.)

Perhaps.

I take it we're not going to discuss lap-sitting and taking advantage of drunken young men, then?

Good thing I am no longer drinking OR young! My trip to the UK had enough first-time-in-a-lifetime experiences as is. :D ;)

Firstly, I'd never be rude about your new hair colour or your scarf.

Secondly, I was entirely convincing when I backed up your claim to be your alter ego.

So it's a bit unfair if you have a go at me!

:sob:

Anyone know what the actual name of "The Arsehole Trilogy" is that Ken Campbell was talking about? Did anyone buy them or have they read them?
