The Grumpy Old Kim Fans Lounge! Boo Hiss!

Sorry, it had to be done, now that I'm officially old and grumpy avec avatar!

And be warned: this thread is ONLY for the oldies!!

You youngsters - and by that I mean anyone under 30 (yes, one day you'll realise that 30 is, in fact, young!) - BUTT OUT!!

Although, in consultation with my grumpy old colleagues (I'm talking Lynx, Nicky and Hagar here ) we may occasionally allow a youngster to post in here if they can contribute something that may help to relieve our grumpy oldiness.

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers

I would like to stress that I feel neither old, nor grumpy.
But it is nice to have our own thread.

Although, as we do not tend to suffer from verbal diarrea (wrong spelling, I know), unlike some of the yougsters in the Lounge, I'm afraid this topic may become more like a "sleeper" thread

Are the 4 of us really the only over 30-s here?

I'm already way over 30!! I come to this board very often. I know, I don't post a lot because I consider my English to be not good enough, but I love to read your posts, especially those written by auntie Fifi!!!

FINALLY!!!


A "wrinkles are sexy" thread!
Thanks, Fi!

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!

Yay! Finally a place where the oldies can post & talk about the 1960's without annoying us youngens! ( I'm just joking, maybe I should start a 20-29 yo thread).
And you will have another member next year....Yasmine!

We will miss you Kim!.


Best of Luck in 2007 to: Kim & Bryan, Lleyton, Alicia, Todd, Sam, Chris, Casey, Wayne, Kirsten & all the other Aussies & injured players.

Could you do your math again please! Being 30+ does not necessarily mean you remember the 1960's (not from own memory that is)

OMG, this is great, all of a sudden I feel young again!

Actually, this S&W avatar makes me really nervous with the way they seem to be reading your posts, you feel like you have to be grumpy to stay in keeping with them

Mind you, just got back from a very long trip to the south coast of England and had enough terrible road experiences to make me VERY grumpy!

For instance, why in the stupid UK do they let wide loads that take up all of the motorway, transport their huge tonka trucks in the middle of the bloody rush hour

1. who are "they" (but that is a rhetorical question that cant be answered by you in here because you are no way old or grumpy enough!!)

2. much as I like you, oh noble Bree resident, you are too bloody young for this wild and desolate place!

3. I can see you are desperate to be old and grumpy like us old and grumpy ones, but wait your bloody turn!
