I now feel obliged to send the fancy Italian ham in the post to someone but it definitely wouldn't keep.

Quick question:

why is this ----> "^^^" a "Fiddy"? what does that mean? what is the history behind this? what am I not getting? a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

"....When I cannot sing my heart, I can only speak my mind...."

Technically my comment is not a Fiddy.

But a Fiddy is when you go:

^^^^^ or a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 to a post rather than quote it and due to your nonobservance you didn't notice that it'll be posted on the next page instead of underneath the post you're replying to, rendering your ^^^^^ or a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 useless.

@50yearslate accidentally did this a lot when she was new to the forum and so it became known as 'doing a Fiddy'.

Oof. Makes sense. I've done that a few times before and someone will go "Fiddy!" and I would get really confused, but now things are clear.

She likes Iman, it’s Angie she has a problem with. (Although if I recall correctly Walry actually killed Iman in an Applebee’s once but that’s not important).

Or maybe forumpool loooooooves me and spreads my name to bring joy to the forum!

ASJ is correct

 by the way, does anyone remember who came up with the term?

also, relatively unrelated, but does anyone remember post stealing? That was funny ahdn_george_08

I was also forced to square dance in middle school and knew what King Cake was and love it (bc of French class lmao), but that's not enough I guess. It's probably the mayo-based potato salad and pecan pronunciation that tipped me off as a yank though

I actually picked mayo potato salad, cuz I've never heard of making it with mustard, and obviously I was never subjected to school PE. I definitely pronounced pe-CAWN correctly though a-hard-days-night-john-6

I've never had potato salad and wasn't sure which one to pick but I went for the white one. And I do know what king cake is because of a mardi gras thing we went to once- I actually got the baby 😀 so that was cool. And I, too, pronounce peCAHN correctly.

Me. ahdn_john_08_gif

A tablespoon of a wholegrain mustard, mixed with olive oil and lemon juice, add spring onions (I usually go for 4 or 5), then toss through cooked new potatoes, leaving to cool. Works great with any sliced ham, and fresher on the palette than a lot of mayonnaise potato salads can be.
