Any excuse for fun seems legitimate, surely.That's why I think Lord Mair might, with the team, organise a Frogstival.I mean, if Jools can have a Hootenanny...

Oh that's an idea! -- Mmm I;ll think ;-) Fri 17 Oct 2008 00:34:09 GMT+1 needsanewnickname http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/10/mad_frog_syndrome.shtml?page=76#comment23 Well. I could have been there if Real Flippin Life hadn't got in the way. So just quiet envy...[faint sound of sobs]I wonder if Our Eric mightn't arrange a Frogstival around the Xmas/New Year/Burns Night/any other excuse to be cheerful around the dark and gloomy nights sort of time?Why, he could even ask us over to the canteen for a polystyrene cup of some unidentifiable brown liquid.

I have a litle more time now .

I relied on other ''tech-savvy'' folk to give us access to theirs ;o) Thu 16 Oct 2008 19:59:24 GMT+1 Fifi http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/10/mad_frog_syndrome.shtml?page=66#comment20 This post has been Removed Thu 16 Oct 2008 17:05:10 GMT+1 mittfh http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/10/mad_frog_syndrome.shtml?page=63#comment19 FFred (18): Alternatively, since it isn't needed for it's original purpose any more, reinvent the refuge...

Nor do I do any of the things that involve sound or moving pictures: i run a Mac Quadra 650 and it simply isn't large enough to deal with these newfangled matters, poor fing.

Once there, it should be fairly simple to get froggers all sorted before the next Frogfest :-) Thu 16 Oct 2008 16:07:11 GMT+1 Gillianian http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/10/mad_frog_syndrome.shtml?page=53#comment16 Molly and Chris - if only we could get in touch with each other easily, like in the days of The Old Blog, where a click on some individuals' names would take us to personal blogs or web-sites ;o( Thu 16 Oct 2008 15:22:23 GMT+1 Chris Ghoti http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/10/mad_frog_syndrome.shtml?page=50#comment15 *sulk* Thu 16 Oct 2008 15:12:25 GMT+1 Perky http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/10/mad_frog_syndrome.shtml?page=46#comment14 Oh Molly - do please come next time!

Thu 16 Oct 2008 11:02:48 GMT+1 Fifi http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/10/mad_frog_syndrome.shtml?page=16#comment5 Seriously though... the apparent matiness of these exchanges amongst regular froggers does NOT mean that anyone is being kept out of anything on purpose. Experience so far shows that whenever froggers meet up for the first time*, they get along famously. It's disconcertingly like meeting someone 'again' ... because so far, we've all turned out to be pretty much how we appear on the blog!*Obviously, when meeting strangers for the first time it makes sense to do so in a public place, or to take someone with you. So, do be a bit careful. As I'm quite sure your teenaged children will tell you, when you try to explain where you're going...;o) Thu 16 Oct 2008 10:46:14 GMT+1 ValeryP http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/10/mad_frog_syndrome.shtml?page=13#comment4 Gosh - sounds like my diary entry ;-) Thu 16 Oct 2008 10:42:23 GMT+1 Fearless Fred http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/10/mad_frog_syndrome.shtml?page=10#comment3 And I wasn't even there (at that point)!
