Pop to the splasheries my lambs and after you've brushed your hair till it shines we'll have a quick practice of 'I sing of Margaret so fair'.

Once we've finished casting the movie, that is....

TooExtraImmatureCheddar Thu 19-Jun-14 20:03:00

Oooh, tophole! I vote for Who Is Sylvia after that.

... and then "Hark, Hark, the Lark" after that.

Will there be paper games? Are we allowed paper games at Madame's birthday?

Who's going to fall over the cliff so Joey can rescue them, and what vital bit of the picnic will be left behind?

TooSpotty Thu 19-Jun-14 20:13:26

I never said I was bringing the lemonade.

weegiemum Thu 19-Jun-14 20:15:29

Me! I've already got a "weakness" in my ankle. Therefore I'm readily to fall!!

SockQueen Thu 19-Jun-14 20:20:05

I am warming up with "Golden Slumbers." With some special milk as accompaniment - self-fulfilling prophecy!

I think Joey should be Michelle Dockery or Gemma Arterton. Rosamund Pike for Frieda.

Happydaysatlast Thu 19-Jun-14 20:25:17

Sorry I need closure from the casting. Rosalie dene, Jane horricks?

Don't worry about the lemonade Karens pies have jelly in them so that will take the edge of your thirst.

Oh Karen, Silvia Simms, apologies if she's dead.

RobinHumphries Thu 19-Jun-14 20:32:51

Am I invited or do I have to stay at home cos of my "delicacy"?

LonnyVonnyWilsonFrickett Thu 19-Jun-14 20:41:45

Robin, obviously you will have to stay home with the hunners of babies.

And fear not, my casting couch is still open! Pizza is on its way but I'll try to update later (beats football)

Marcipex Thu 19-Jun-14 21:16:37

Is everyone wearing a vest under their petticoat and summer dress? As we are sure to need them later to make an impromptu rope to pull someone out of a crevasse.

SetPhasersTaeMalkie Thu 19-Jun-14 21:27:26

Hello, can I sneak in? I've been in the San for the last couple of threads on account of an unexplained delicacy that I have.

Matey has been eyeing me up since I got back so I may hide in here.

JoeyMaynardsghost Thu 19-Jun-14 21:27:37

I have been practising with my golden voice.

There are no windows intact in a 20 mile radius.

MrsJoeDolan Thu 19-Jun-14 21:28:09

iPad wine sentence fail.

Fram Thu 19-Jun-14 21:28:48

SetPhasersTaeMalkie Thu 19-Jun-14 21:30:24
