Much excitement at Mumsnet HQ this week as Caitlin Moran is joining us on Thursday lunchtime (1-2pm) for a live webchat and to talk us through her latest book, Moranthology.

How to be a Woman was one of the most talked about books on the boards last year, so we're all delighted to hear Moranthology brings more chat on a brilliant range of topics: Twitter, Obama, binge drinking, Amy Winehouse, 'The Big Society', Party Bags and Boris Johnson - Albino Shag-hound.  These are just a few of the subjects touched on and make us think she is our ideal guest.

Post your questions to Caitlin in advance or join her on Thursday at 1pm.

Watching the show now. grin She went for the DMs and flowery dress then. grin I love the way she's trailblazing 90's stuff again. I was never as happy in my clothes as I was in the 90's and it's inspired me to dust off my DMs.

Watching her at the Bloomsbury is like reading all the MN Classics threads at once.

buy this one it's cheap, you can build the colour, and it stays on smile

I used to slaver my eyelids in vaseline and stick holographic glitter to them. I used to be cool.

NanBullen Thu 13-Sep-12 21:39:59

I'm going to do it, I'm going to go out IN PUBLIC wearing green spangly eyeshadow.

On your head be it!

<drama queen>

I like those big palettes of cheap make up that you get from supermarkets at Christmas, the ones designed for aunties to give their teenage neices. There are always a few greens in those.

Only problem is making sure you put the same colour on each eye. hmm

NanBullen Thu 13-Sep-12 21:35:30

grin

CumberdickBendybatch Thu 13-Sep-12 21:17:16

Nan - thanks for the link! grin

CumberdickBendybatch Thu 13-Sep-12 21:14:40

Ooh I think I met Caitlin in London! Have just checked FB and she's a friend of a friend.. I feel very special now grin

MrsKwazii Thu 13-Sep-12 21:12:27

Nan, you just need to find the right shade of green. One with gold tone to it perhaps? Darker greens are fabulous when a bit more metallic. I have a bit of a thing for green eyeshadow grin

CumberdickBendybatch Thu 13-Sep-12 21:09:32

I thought everyone had slept with Menswear? wink

also, for this, I love you a lot - "Moved on to Game of Thrones. LOVING the multi-world. Also LOVING my new imperious catchphrase, "I am Khaleesi", whenever I want someone to buy me a drink. "Khaleesi needs a drink." "Khaleesi is going to the toilet." "Khaleesi has just done a little sick.""

NanBullen Thu 13-Sep-12 20:55:25

I wish I could wear green eyeshadow like caitlin, just makes me look ill sad

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Thu 13-Sep-12 20:13:17

Thanks Nan smile

For all my being mean about Menswe*@*r ; I had a t-shirt. And saw them twice. I never had relations with any of them though.

SuperB0F Thu 13-Sep-12 20:09:08

Thank you so much for that link, Nan, I'm really enjoying it.

Missed it all due to bloody work.

I had sex with one of Menswe@r, Simon.

Feck feck feckity feck I missed it! sad And I was in the house and DS2 was asleep and everything. sadsad

Thanks, everyone, for asking some great questions and most of the ones I'd have asked and THANKS Caitlin for coming! Please come back soon. I luff you much, and now I know you run to an exclusive Bowie soundtrack, I think I may just have come slightly. blush

JenaiMarr my twitter name has part of my real name in so it would out me on here sad

Ooh - as well as CM's article about libraries there was also her very brilliant, very sad piece on what it was like growing up with parents on disability benefit. Worth reading if you can find it online somewhere, pay wall or otherwise...

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Thu 13-Sep-12 17:29:29

Who are you on Twitter, marshmallows? Do I follow you already?

I missed this sad

The article she wrote about how dreadful library closures are is the finest piece of journalism I have ever had the privilege of reading.

I can't wait to read Moranthology; I have to wait until Christmas though because my mum's already bought it for me.

marshmallowpies Thu 13-Sep-12 17:10:18

Oops that should have said CM was not part of any nastiness that I've seen on Twitter.

marshmallowpies Thu 13-Sep-12 17:09:17

I googled it to try & find out the origins of the nastiness I saw on Twitter. Now not entirely sure who started the spat & what it was over, I just saw some really nasty tweets directed at her & assumed she was the injured party.

should concentrate on own life & not worrying about whether certain slebs are friends on Twitter or not.

Either way, CM

DillyTante Thu 13-Sep-12 17:00:30

Do share marshmallow
