buttoneers

Those multichopper things marketed by KTel, slicers that took the skin off the end of your fingers. You get the idea.

how lazy were they? use a little tool to put buttons on instead of a needle and cotton.

Lazy or whatever, if they'd done a good job they'd probably still be popular...either that or they were so good nobody ever needed a replacement, but somehow I doubt that. :D

If sewing a button back on became replaced, then I'd be able to sew nothing. Buttons is about all I can stretch to on the sewing front.

Although my friend did teach me how to sew a hem back up a few years ago, but I doubt I could remember how now.

You crazy kids and your sowing. My, how the young are hip n' insane! Tsk. Sowing. When will it end? In my day, kids listened to music and had sex at the age of thirteen. Not any more. *shakes head in disbelief.*

Did you mean sewing? Or something to do with female pigs? :twisted:

Mind you, she's not the only one. I was called a prevert at work today for admiring the latest trainee accountant. Just cos she's 'only' 17... :? :oops:

Yes, my keyboard is getting old. But it's relatively new. Do you get me? I suppose my ma spilling tea on it didn't help.

Your poor hard-worked keyboard, ahving to suffer from you pounding away at it, day after day....

...

...sorry - I wandered off mentally for a moment there :wink:

Don't know about spilling tea on your keyboard (never done that), but I know that after a drop of Guinness, Cider, and real ale, they don't sem to work as well as they used to...

Strangely tho, my Gameboy had a good dunking in Guinness, and still works fine 8)

:shock: I'll have you know I've only had a 'small' red wine tonight! I'd put you across my knee young lady, if I could only figure out which one of the three of you is real... :drink:
