EasternBlue

12:01 am
EasternBlue

chic - who is YOUR Walton??
12:02 am
Jacula

EB - fast? I'll have you know I am a Good Girl! ROFLOL.
12:02 am
JBsAnno

The Waltons had a cat named Calico, so I just guessed at the image...
12:02 am
cybernan

Hello again, everyone.

JBsAnno

181 words today, and I have to work, too!
12:04 am

ROFL!!
12:04 am
chic

He's Bill Walton of the Portland Trailblazers (basketball) now a coach somewhere and most important a huge Grateful Dead fan.
BTW, S 8/45
12:05 am
Jacula

EB - That's exactly what my OH loves about me! LOL.
12:06 am
Jacula

Chic - It's meant to be The Waltons (the mountain family from the UK/Canada series). We have a set of Waltons with 6 kids here in UK, however, they live in Liverpool.

Oooh this is my first experience Flipping Over to New Puzzle at 1:00 am EST. Cool.
12:07 am
JBsAnno

Good morning, and good night, everyone! I'll look for you on the log later, have to go to bed.
It was fun on the previous grid, lots of vroom-vroom.
12:07 am
EasternBlue

chic - I like your take on the "Walton" theme...

I didn't watch the Walton's much either...I was more of a LHOTP fan...
12:07 am
JBsAnno

Sushi, trust me, you'll regret it around 11:00am. Especially if you're updating ACGME stats like me!
12:08 am

Jacula, it's the rebel in me; see my 12:01 post...:-0

12:12 am
JBsAnno

<blowing kisses all around>
*bleary eyed tearful grateful expression on face*
"Good night, sweet Babblers! I want to thank each and every one of you...wha????"
<unceremoniou sly jumped on by hungry cats demanding food and why the heck are you up so late anyway?>
12:12 am
Jacula

33 words so far for me, just idly meandering through the new grid. How are the rest of you doing?
12:12 am

I watched that for Michael Landon but I couldn't stand Melissa Gilbert...

JB - chuck a chicken carcase or a tub of margarine at the cats. It'll keep 'em happy. You may have some cleaning up to do later, though.:-(
12:14 am
EasternBlue

chic - he reminded me of my father...I liked to pretend to be Laura...read all the LHOTP books when I was in first grade!

Hi everyone -- gonna do a mad flurry of typing and then turn in early(for me) tonight --
Though, I just want to know -- who got the E's and R's on discount today? ;D
12:23 am

Excuse me?? 'Yorker' isn't allowed? It is a cricketing term!
12:28 am
brandyjack

not very cricket of them eh?
12:28 am
EasternBlue

I thought I was a New Yorker...I must just be "New"!!
12:28 am
Jacula

Indeed not, BJ!
12:29 am
Jacula

EB - No! It seems you will be forever 'new'.
12:30 am
Jacula

Wolfie - glad to see you're taking some experienced parent advice and getting some sleep in now, before the birth.x
12:31 am
GreyWoulf

What's sleep?
12:31 am
mab

Polished off the R on the right.
12:32 am
Jacula

Mab - I've got rid of that 'r', too.
12:33 am
Jacula

Wolfie - sleep is the state of unconsciousness a brain reaches about 5-8 hours in every 24. Well, it does when you don't have babies in the house.x
12:33 am
mab

I'm so proud of myself. (ha)
12:33 am
EasternBlue

...or Babble to play!! 8 D
12:34 am
brandyjack

In other words, sleep is like my memory, a figment of someone elses imagination....
12:34 am
Jacula

LOL, EB!
12:35 am
GreyWoulf

5-8 hours? are you sure? I'll have to give it a try some time ---- 4 hours of downtime is my typical :)
12:35 am
brandyjack

I like the little reminder Dr_God put up there to refresh after chagning your icon...........

Not sure of your age, Wolfie, but if you're in your late 20s to 30s - 4 hours is okay. Before and after that - 8 hours! Dunno about after 48-years'-old, 'cos I haven't got there yet!
12:37 am
Jacula

Yes, I saw that, BJ. Do you think he's catering for the older and the drunken and sleep-deprived ones?

12:44 am
Blaze

Jac thank you very much I saved it in word.... is there a section in Bab anon for this list ?
12:45 am
brandyjack

Babbler has a themse entry under other interests on Bab Anon but it hasn't been updated lately.
12:46 am
Blaze

thank you brandy jack... I did not think to look there...
12:47 am
Jacula

Blaze - Like BJ said, it has not been updated in there.
12:47 am
GreyWoulf

lots of fun Y and K words today :)
12:47 am
Blaze

got to go.... see you later.... a job interveiw tomorrow... want to be fresh and energetic.... good night/day to everyone
12:47 am
EasternBlue

I think themes are 'archived' after a little while...but they are subject to change here & there....so I think Babs waits until they've come & gone....
12:48 am
EasternBlue

Goodnight Blaze!

Good Luck with the interview....
12:48 am
JeeWhiz

Another month half over....sure went fast.

Good luck, Blaze!

Good luck, Blaze! Rest Well -- see you tomorrow!
(*Hug*) and an extra (*hug*) for luck!!
12:50 am
Jacula

All the best, Blaze.
12:51 am
Jacula

I don't know about themes being archived. I've asked repeatedly for 70s glam rock (not Gary Glittery) icons but not got them yet!
12:51 am
Jacula

(62 words here right now, btw.)
12:52 am
brandyjack

68 here, including only one of the 8's.
12:52 am
GreyWoulf

75 here Jac ;D
12:52 am
cybernan

Good night, Blaze, and good luck! :)
12:53 am
EasternBlue

Jac - I think the 'archive' is for themes past...not ideas presented...usually Babs asks in the chat log & gets ideas in batches...you could always request the next time you see her on...I'm sure she'd add it (it looks like it would be in Feb. at this point!)....
12:54 am
mrpresident

the darn st8 is eluding me and I am sure it is staring me in the face (nah nah nah nah nah!)
help if possible?
12:55 am
Jacula

st8/45? Past tense of double-speakered in hi-fi.
12:56 am
mab

mrp: past tense of what we used to call a re6 player?
12:56 am
mrpresident

Jac, I swear I tried that!! aarrghh!!
12:57 am
Jacula

Weird thing is, I've got that word, but it's not showing up as ticked off on the 8-word stat list.:-((
12:57 am

Enjoy, chic!! I did! :D

Sleep Well! (*hug*)
12:59 am
Jacula

MPres - I have and it still doesn't show with a red tick! I guess if I signed out and then signed in again it would. Can't be bothered to do that right now though.
12:59 am
mrpresident

My husband just handed me potato crisps and white wine!! :))
1:00 am
EasternBlue

Jac - are you sure you have all the 8's??
1:01 am
mab

That's one studly roo, mrpres. Looks like he should be smoking a cigarette.
1:01 am
EasternBlue

mrpres - I thought the hubby was away??
1:02 am
Jacula

Chic - sleep wel and enjoy the film. As Wolfie said, 'I did!' Next one's due out Xmas 2006 with a £2 million break for Harry and Hermione (the actors) to take their exams, AS levels for Harry and GCSEs for Hermione. I'm glad they are keeping their heads on and doing them.
1:02 am
mab

Oh, I'm sorry - is that a pic of mr. mrpres?
1:02 am
mrpresident

Thanks, that is my hunky-roo!! I had to *edit* out the rough bits for this rated-g forum!!
Husband was in bed all day... he is alive and well now!!
1:03 am
Jacula

EB - The stats say there is ony one 8. If that is so, I have it.
1:03 am
mrpresident

eastern, yes, he was away but came back... they always find their way back! 8@
1:03 am
JeeWhiz

Jacula, my stats say there are 8 8's.
1:04 am

Jac - my stats show 8 8's...(sorry to be the bearer of bad news!!)
1:05 am
Jacula

Jw - oh sh (smelly stuff)! You are right.
1:05 am

mr pres...it helps when they drop breadcrumbs to find their way back!!

I don't remember a kangaroo on the Waltons, but there could have been. Actually, I don't remember MLK and Rosa Parks being on either.

Oh, that's not a kangaroo, that's grandpaws (runaway-returned in the last season) dingo-horse! This baby makes him alot of money!!

1:21 am
Tella

excuse Me!!!!! any answers?????????????????
1:24 am
Jacula

Tella - yes, you can view the profiles any time. Excusde me for not bbeing here to answer when you questioned, I was off watching my fave Hurra Torpedo set again. Ever watched them doing 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' whilst destroying kitchen implements?
1:29 am
GreyWoulf

Well -- T's are done!
1:30 am
Jacula

Oh well, I guess not! It's the total answer to teenaged/middle-aged/old-aged frustratation about life and its so-called restrictions. You should watch it. It's brilliant (if you are mad, which I am). LOL.
1:30 am
mab

Wow! That's great!
1:32 am
Jacula

Mab - waht's great? Wolfie finishing the t's or Hurra Torpedo?

Wolfie - get back on line, man!
1:33 am
mab

I meant GW, but I like the idea of the other a lot. Smashing kitchen implements is what I would like to do, being quite mad also.
1:35 am

any clue for ro7/36 please? (blind)

hi Jera!

Hi Jera!

judierae

ro/7 when you bake in the oven
1:43 am
GreyWoulf

judie -- thanks but that was for the 7/28 :)

Having just figured out the 7/36 -- it is r + shellfish often consumed for its aphrodisiac qualities
1:43 am
GreyWoulf

Hi Jera!
1:43 am
judierae

oops sorry
1:44 am
Jera

Greetings, {{{GW}}}... did you enjoy your Moon??
1:44 am
judierae

same word, change the 3rd letter
1:45 am
GreyWoulf

no prob, judie -- done it myself a time or three ;)
1:46 am
mrpresident

thank You!!
1:46 am
GreyWoulf

Indeed I did, Jera -- and it was just wonderful when Kristianna looked at it tonight and said "That's a wolf moon!" with no input from either of us :)
1:46 am
EasternBlue

Woulfie - from the mouths of babes...don'tcha just love it!!
1:47 am
Jera

*wiping a tear*

That's simply precious!! I had a proud moment a few weeks ago when Gwyd spotted an extremely pale moon in the afternoon sky...
1:50 am
GreyWoulf

EB -- they are indeed a marvel to behold -- It is still amazing to me how much better she is at communicating than just a few months ago!
1:51 am
Jera

Ahhh... I miss preschool communication... Gwyd is usually more of the strong, silent type...
1:52 am
mrpresident

Oh Grey... aren't they beautiful!! That is sweet!!
1:52 am
rosalind230

morning all
1:53 am

Sprite is crocheting butterflies for Imbolc... can't believe January is half over...
1:53 am
mrpresident

did I tell you all about the obsenities my daughter yelled!!
1:53 am
Jera

Mornin' Rosalind!
1:53 am
mab

They are so keen at that age -- so ready and eager to absorb everything. Such a joy to behold, Kristianna and Gwyd, I should think.
1:54 am
EasternBlue

g'mornin' rosalind...
1:55 am
Jera

Sometimes I get flickers, that he is taking in & understanding everything... I'd just like a bit more output reassurance... people are getting a bit worried about him...
1:56 am
EasternBlue

Jera - a friend was telling me about their son...he didn't speak for 3 years...then once he started, it was full sentences (now he's 8 & doesn't stop talking!!)....
1:59 am
Jera

My husband was like that, but now Gwyd is 4 & still not stringing more than 3 words together at best... just started a testing process... hoping for the best...
1:59 am
GreyWoulf

EB -- that reminds of the old joke about the young man who didn't speak a word for the first 18 years of his life, much to the consternation of his family. Finally, one day he shouts to his father, "WAtch out for the Bull!" which was running towards him, thus allowing dear old dad to jump out of the way.

When confronted over his silence over the previous years, his explanation was quite simple ---"Well, gee, Pa, I never had anything important to say before now"
2:01 am
EasternBlue

Jera - speech therapists can do wonders too...hopefully the testing, etc. works well...
2:01 am
mab

Generally speaking, it seems kids are too much watched (by teachers and other pros) and probed to see if they've met the age-appropriate milestone. Some children just take a slightly different path, like the boy EB just mentioned.
2:02 am
GreyWoulf

Can anyone clue me in on the re6/18 and the w8?

Those are the only ones I have left in the last 3rd of the alphabet and I need to go to sleep :)
2:02 am
Jera

I agree, mab... 40 years ago (with my husband), it was merely anecdotal, like streaking at church (funny for a toddler, but not much beyond)
2:03 am
mrpresident

re6/18 add er to the end of the re4/4
2:03 am
Jera

I have 2 re6's they are both doing co4's again... you probably have those, though...
2:03 am
mrpresident

can I have a clue for the re5/14 please!
2:04 am
Jacula

I have 72 words. Haven't even looked yet for how many there are.
2:04 am
Jera

OOps, sorry, those are 24 points.. (my re6's)
2:04 am
GreyWoulf

mab -- I agree with you -- as soon as a child expresses the slightest variation from the books, there is always at least one Negative Nellie telling parents that they need to see a specialist
2:04 am
EasternBlue

wa 8 -

first part = opposite of 'peace'
second part = boats might be considered a water _ _ _ _ _
or witch _ _ _ _ _

or arts & _ _ _ _ _s....

2:04 am
mab

That sounds good, Jera, but I'm not sure that at four he's even close to missing the window for language acquisition. I hope everything works out well (and I bet it will).
2:04 am
Jera

I don't mind checking things out but I don't want him labelled or unneccesarily medicated...
2:05 am
GreyWoulf

mrp -- I should have just typed it in -- I didn't see how it twisted so discounted it's existence
2:05 am
mrpresident

wa8 is a ship that carries air***** for the airforce and they have wa* games
2:07 am
mrpresident

can I have a clue for the re5/14 please!
2:07 am
GreyWoulf

you can tell vocabulary is our most common form of game with this group -- Because all my friends play it I would have just said:

Worlds of Wa8 -- currently the most popular online MMORPG
2:07 am
EasternBlue

Jera - that's the good thing about speech therapists...they work on pronunciation, words in general...

2 of my nieces/nephews had them...
I don't think they can prescribe medicine as they are not doctors...

Keep reading & talking to Gwyd...asking questions & giving him 'time' to answer...some kids process words differently and think longer about responding than others...

We'll keep you in our thoughts too!
2:09 am
GreyWoulf

mrp -- to make a second attempt, like when we re*** a word that we got an oops message over cos we don't see any other options :D
2:10 am
mrpresident

thank you!! Didn't see that through the forest!!
2:11 am
Jera

I suppose if he is autistic, he would need some form of meds, so he can concentrate & function in school... I am prepared to homeschool if necessary, though...
2:11 am
EasternBlue

Jera - more of us should be like Gwyd...they say we have 2 ears to listen twice as much as we should speak with our 1 mouth!!

(I have trouble with that one...I'm a talker!!)
2:12 am
Jera

So am I & his big sister... I'm still not absolutley sure he's simply gotten in the habit of not being able to get a word in edgewise, LOL
2:13 am
Jera

I msu look really sick... my husband is up doing dishes at 3 am...
2:13 am
mrpresident

my darling daughter (7) and I were driving along and happened apon my son & husband walking along the side of the road.
I said to my daughter "Yell obsenities our the window at them"
She poised herself at the open window and yelled "OBSENITIES!"
2:13 am
GreyWoulf

ROFL, mrp!!
2:13 am
EasternBlue

Jera - there are so many alternative therapies aside from meds...I think for austistic children too (I'm thinking back to the days I worked at a summer camp for 'differently abled' children...). We had some kids who were 'fine' without their meds - but different structure, etc....

I don't have any schooling/background or a good path for info...but if I come across anything, I will send it your way....

I just had a similar experience tonight --- Kristianna has a scratch on her nose that I have no idea where it came from -- so I asked her, "Where did you scratch your nosey"

Too which she responded in a bright tone, "Like this!" and proceeded to scratch her nose with her finger :)

2:27 am
mrpresident

Jera, I was half expecting her to tell me to 'get lost' but it didn't occur to me she didn't know what 'obsenities' meant!
2:29 am
Jera

I might have to try that on Sprite... she's nearly ten... I try not to cuss too much around her, so I usually say "expletive deleted" ...
2:30 am

What time is it in your part of the world, mrp?

it is 7.30pm (Sydney)

I still find that amazing, here we are chatting & it's such different times of day in different parts of the world...

sorry, was just on the phone to said daughter... my kids are 300km north having a wonderful beach holiday!!
2:39 am

That's so cool, mrp! We go to the beach every other year, alternate with the mountains... this summer we are going to a gathering of the clans (Scottish) in the mountains
2:41 am
Jera

Sorry, I haven't gotten that far... just passed halfway & am getting my list in order so I won't get confused towards the end...

Scottish clan gathering... sounds like fun!! We seaside and flat plain holiday every year.

2:46 am
mrpresident

vegemite... my kids go through 800ml jarfuls at a time! Have you had it with avocado and cheese melt!?
2:48 am
Jera

I have never had it, but I want to try... & intorduce the Girls to it... trying to get my hands on an Aussie Guide uniform as well...

What would you suggest for a first taste (wanting to make it as good as possible)... on buttered toast bits, maybe?
2:49 am
Angelsong

Jera, if you use firefox browser, ther is an extension called Quicknote that you can open within Firefox. no need to minimize windows with it.
2:49 am
mrpresident

jera, it is an acquired taste... very strong taste, so only put a tiny smidge on toast and maybe melt cheese over it... then go from there
2:50 am
Jera

Cheese is always a good food tempter...
2:52 am

It's raining a bit here also, Ferrari. My son's just brougt me a cuppa. I was also, just looking out of the window, with my headphones on, going to say, since I saw daughter's b/f get into her car, say ,'Has she gone out without kissing me goodbye?' Seems she has, since car has now gone.:-(
5:17 am

Oh, too bitter! Sorry! Forgive me. It all just gets to me sometimes.
5:20 am

5:20 am

they'll understand one day jac
5:22 am

jac, I ban my family from going one step anywhere when I am feeling that way... they have to give me 'attention' and understand I love them, then they can move!!
5:22 am
SunnFlower

my eldest has just gone away until May, Seattle, Mexico, Guatemala and Bolivia and i doubt if I will hear from her
5:22 am
Jacula

Yes, MrPres., sometimes they do! Esp., if we've been through hell with them. These days, I don't know what face to expect from her. Doesn't really matter wehat I do or say in the meantime though. Last thing I did that made her hug me a lot was lose a few pounds of weight. Not much fun that, considering she has anorexia.
5:23 am
mrpresident

Jac!! Not a healthy situation for anyone!! I am sorry!!
5:23 am
Jacula

Oh, I'm sorry! Too much! Sorry, it just got to me.

that's not easy to deal with jac, lol

I think I'll just shut up now and look for words.
5:26 am

Jac, hope you get/got help for yourself and the rest of your family... eating disorders are horrid, horrid and painful! I feel so much for you...
5:27 am
mrpresident

Ok, help with the co8 please!! eluding me!!!
5:28 am
Jacula

MrPrs - the so-called 'help' for the rest of the family consisted of laying all the blame on 'The Mother' - so, as we all felt, not much bloody help. We've worked it out though, as best we can.
5:28 am
SunnFlower

why isn't yorker a word? babble obviously doesn't play cricket. don't get upset jac' easier said than done I know

bable certainly doesn't play cricket - there's at least a few cricketing terms it doesn't accept ... *sigh*
5:30 am
SunnFlower

mother's are an easy target aren't they, so grossly unfair
5:31 am
Jacula

Ferrari - Indeed they are! 'Blame the mother!' the easy way out for everyone, it would seem.
5:31 am
mrpresident

Jac, it's always our 'fault' . We did give birth, survive, then manage to feed and cloth them, give them love/warms/education/more love, care for them when they were sick, sacrifice every cent we have.... and we are still to 'blame'.... tell them to FO and shut their pie-hole!!
5:32 am
Jacula

MrPres - you might be proud to know that on behalf of all we mothers, I did just that!

When in Dutch you say 'good luck' to someone, you can say 'sterkte'. It's in the grid. Very distracting.

Originally it is French, Jacula. 'Ne me quitte pas'.
I know Nana Mouscouri has sung it, among others. The english version has known a lot of different artists bringing it. The Afrikaanse version is by Herman van Veen and almost made me cry, to tell the truth.

7:18 am

will do, how many words?
7:19 am
FMitch

181 words
7:19 am
Molecule

whoa, didn't expect that many!
7:19 am
Jacula

181 words in total today.
7:20 am
FMitch

Hey Jac, love the idea of the parody song - can you done one on the ZZTop song you mentioned earlier - we can start a section on BabAnon!!!
7:22 am
Jacula

FMitch - I could do one one the ZZTop song I mentioned, but I'd like Dr_od to give us a title to go for really.
7:23 am
FMitch

:) have you emailed him?
7:24 am
Jacula

Dr_od? LOL! And Roflol. (Listening to Alice Cooper's 'Poison' which could also apply to Babble! right now).
7:25 am
Jacula

FMitch- not yet, no. Will do shortly.
7:25 am
granadan

first I was afraid, I was petrified
when you said 181 words I think I almost died....
7:26 am
FMitch

certainly would be appropriate for a couple of the grids we have had recently.

Good one grandan!!!!!
7:26 am
granadan

go on now go, walk out the door - youve finished the whole grid and you wont help us anymore...
7:27 am
granadan

Oh for an l5
Oh an l5. I know if I learn how to spell I might just find the 5...
7:28 am
granadan

Okay, Ive pulled myself back together again now.

marigold may I have a clue for the tr7 please
7:51 am

Good to see you, we were only talking about you yesterday, people were asking if anyone had seen you recently!
Hold on - are you at school or at home?
7:51 am

7:52 am

7:52 am
Jacula

BH! Miya! Was wondering where you had got to!
7:52 am
Miyavi_fan

But hey - I was being spoken about? (*^_^*) I'm looooved! :D
7:53 am
Miyavi_fan

Hey Jac! (((Jac)))

Oh...er...thanks, Granadan...
7:54 am
granadan

It could have been FAR worse....
7:55 am
Miyavi_fan

lol! I don't want to think about what's implied there :D though I somehow managed to cough up some blood this morning :/ (hence being off school)...do I win in the gross stakes? Do I? Do I?! :D
7:56 am
Jacula

miya - has your bedroom door been relocated now and did the insurance pay for it? I hope it did!
7:57 am
granadan

pass that tissue again, the farting dachshund is on parole and on my lap for half an hour - and is being sick....
7:57 am
Miyavi_fan

aaah, it is lovely to have my door back ^_^ So now I can get on with all that I do in peace...no more family members watching me air guitar :D
7:58 am
Jacula

Look Miya -I once stayed up a whole night, as a mother, in your defence. I don't want to see you playing silly victim now! Sorry! You don't know about all that.
7:58 am
Miyavi_fan

Granadan...?! The farting dachshund?!

...I didn't know you knew my Grandpa :D

<<silence, brain!>> *passes box of tissues and stands well back*
7:59 am
FMitch

Periwinkle - did we ever get a clue from Marigod on the elusive tr7/36?
7:59 am
Miyavi_fan

Ooooh, Jac, this is a story I want to hear ^_^

*pulls up a cushion* story time!
7:59 am

Ta Miy

Youre a pal!

Miy, why are you hiding the tissue box?

*stares uncomprehendingly*
8:04 am

Hi Lola! How are you? Your icon is so pretty :)
8:04 am

Woohoo Lola
Hi and thanks for the clues!!!

Thank you, that is a scene from the mountain range not far from where I used to live. My favourite place to go camping : )

Quick, give me a tissue to werap it in... hang on theyre gone.....

*one more circuit of the tank and the brain graduaslly goes back to zero*

Hi Fmitch! : )
8:07 am
FMitch

Hey lola - is the icon from SA?
8:09 am
lola100

FMitch, yes. It's the Drakensberg (Dragon's mountains)...or at least a few of the peaks along the range : )
8:10 am
Miyavi_fan

wow! My icon's a little less imaginative, but it's becautiful to me :D
8:11 am
lola100

miyavi, I'm just lazy, that's all! We had scenery day last week and I still haven't changed it : D
8:11 am
Jacula

- Sorry, but that's a bedtime story you are never going to hear.
8:12 am
granadan

Awww Jac

*throws cushion at Miy and sulks*
8:12 am
Miyavi_fan

lol Lola!

Jac, what if I do my puppy-dog eyes?

*does impression of deranged, cross-eyed rottweiler*

8:12 am
FMitch

Just been looking up where that is Lola - not a part of SA I made it to mind you I've only been a few times and that was on business but did have one great w/e at Sun City.
8:13 am
Miyavi_fan

hey hey hey! I'm of a fragile mental state, Granadan! I just lost something on an e-bay auction, that is :)

Must...take...vengeance. ..
8:14 am

must...kill...high...bidder
I hate it when that happens!
8:14 am

clue for the de8 anyone?
8:15 am
granadan

someone who de5/12's
8:15 am
lola100

FMitch, did you do the valley of the waves?? I've never been to sun city myself. I did most of my holidaying in game reserves and up in Zimbabwe : )
8:15 am
FMitch

de5/12 and then turn it into ther person that does it.
8:15 am
MissyMe

Peri de8

This is the actual person who stops someone from doing
de5/12 above this word
8:16 am
Miyavi_fan

Me too! butchering spree time. We're looking for a rabid X Japan fan carrying a CD like the one in my icon ^_^
8:16 am
marigold

de8 - To prevent or discourage from acting, as by means of fear or doubt
8:16 am
periwinkle

I have tried making the de5 into de8 and must be spelling it wrong cause it won't accept it :(
8:17 am
MissyMe

Peri...add some extra "er's" at the end
8:17 am
FMitch

Lola it is the most amazing surreal place wonderful, extravagent and actually given the inbalance of £ in the country a bit obscene but I loved every min. I have nothing but v happy memories of SA.
8:18 am
periwinkle

got the de8, it needed an extra consanent added in the middle
8:19 am
granadan

double consonant
8:19 am
Miyavi_fan

Why won't it accept 'froat'? Chav language for throat?
8:19 am
MissyMe

Peri I forgot to mention that...
8:19 am
lola100

FMitch, that's great to hear! Would you go back then?
8:21 am
FMitch

Lola - oh yes for sure, there si so much more to see and the people are wonderful, want to see Durba, and Cape Town and well the list is pretty long ... and so is the flight.
8:21 am
periwinkle

anyone have a clue for the co8/45
8:22 am
lola100

peri, add the ro6/18 : )
8:22 am
periwinkle

don't have the ro6/18
8:24 am
lola100

FMitch, tell me about it! If you go to Durban remember to head up the north coast....some very unique ecology and beautiful game reserves that way....*sigh* very homesick now! : (
8:24 am
MissyMe

ro6/18 You turn something around in a circle... you ro**** it
8:25 am
Uneaixoise

the earth ro****** around the sun

ro6/18- to turn around on an axis : )

Hi une! : )
8:26 am

thanks everyone, found the ro6 and then the co8 before I saw your additional clues
8:26 am

Une is that Jonboy?
8:27 am
Uneaixoise

hey, lola! And, yes, in all his black and white glory with a sprig of grass between his teeth!
8:28 am
Miyavi_fan

Hey Une ^_^ Who's Jonboy...somebody I should know about? *raises eyebrows*
8:29 am
lola100

*lola feels old*
8:29 am
MissyMe

He's one of the Waltons...old TV show

"Goodnight, Jon Boy..."
8:29 am
Uneaixoise

hey, miyavi! today's theme is the old tv show, the waltons--John Boy (Richard Thomas) was a key character :-)
8:30 am
Miyavi_fan

oooh...looks like I'm slightly out of touch with the theme, then :/

8:31 am
Uneaixoise

he was typecast for a long time but now has had some considerable success on the Broadway stage in some solid dramas
8:31 am
MissyMe

Miya lol only slightly... :)
8:32 am
Jen

Morning everyone!
8:32 am
FMitch

LOL Lola - you feel old!!! I am quite a few years older than you, darn now I feel old ....
8:32 am
granadan

miy dont worry - it was 1972 - before even my time! But i did think jonboy looked a bit tasty in "IT" when he was older....
8:32 am
Jen

Sorry guys, I don't do The Waltons. :)
8:33 am
MissyMe

Anyone else think ca7/40 is a funny word? I'm trying to think when it would be appropriate to use it in a sentence...
8:33 am
Miyavi_fan

lol Missy! :)
Granadan, Stephen King's IT? I've read the book...trying to work up the courage to watch the film :/
8:34 am
MissyMe

I changed my Grim Fandango icon for this Walton one despite the fact I never watched the show when it was on
8:34 am
DarleenMB

Missy ... how's about, my that was a ca7/40 cake!
8:35 am
FMitch

MissyMe - Anne of Green Gables hair was more ca7/40 colured than mine?
8:35 am
MissyMe

Darleen Good enough lol! :D
8:35 am
granadan

miy - have you read the shining? The film was crap. It was great, Pet semetary gives me nightmares....
8:36 am
MissyMe

FMitch...that one is bordering on poetry :)
8:36 am
DarleenMB

I LOVE stephen king novels. All the framing shows through but it's his characters I really like best. When I got to the end of IT (the book) I cried because I had to say goodbye to the characters.
8:37 am
granadan

Oh yeah - Im nearly at the end of "Needful Things" and Im going to miss it.
8:37 am
Miyavi_fan

yup, I've read the Shining :) must get over my morbid fear of evilly possessed hotels lol :D
8:37 am
DarleenMB

yes, another good one! Have you read the Tower series/
8:38 am
Miyavi_fan

I quite enjoyed Carrie, though it was far too short! It really intrigued me...the film was disappointing though
8:38 am
MissyMe

Granadan Which version are you referring too, there was a Shining T.V. miniseries and The Shining movie? I'm currently waiting for the second to last Dark Tower Book so I can set them all in the row and start reading from beginning of the series to the end. Should take me about a year lol
8:38 am
DarleenMB

Miy, if you ever get to the state, go to Estes Park, Colorado. The Shining was "set" in the Stanley Hotel. Both the book and the movie.
8:38 am
granadan

the film of green mile was brilliant - true almost to the word to the book. tower series?
8:39 am
DarleenMB

I read the first Tower story about 20+ years ago in the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. I was HOOKED and thrilled when he began churning out novels. I have the last 2 and am dragging my feet about reading them cause they weigh a ton.
8:40 am
DarleenMB

Yeah, the Dark Tower series, the Gunslinger? Based on the Song of Roland and weirder than anything King has ever done.
8:41 am
MissyMe

The Dark Tower series...the story of Roland the Gunslinger's quest to find and fix the Dark Tower
8:41 am
Uneaixoise

did you ever read misery or gerald's game? those were two of his best
8:41 am
Miyavi_fan

Darleen...er, think I'll pass on that :) Might just be the thing that pushes me over the edge ^_^; Stephen King is one of my favourite authors though. He and several others inspired me to want to be an author myself
8:41 am
Miyavi_fan

Argh, Misery had me cringing in my chair! "hobbling"...*shudders*
8:41 am
granadan

Oh wow check out
http://www.stanleyhotel.c om/
the picture of it in the snow is AWESOME!
8:42 am
DarleenMB

Yes to Misery. Couldn't get past the first chapter in Gerald's game.
8:42 am
granadan

I loved misery... another one that i COULDNT put down. and then wished I hadnt finished.
8:42 am
Uneaixoise

so you're not really "hard core"?! :-)
8:42 am
Jen

Estes Park is the cutest town!! Growing up, we used to go there every summer.
8:43 am
granadan

But his greatest EVER book? Have you reaD "tHE sTAND"?
8:43 am
DarleenMB

Well now why didn't I think of that? The Stanley is very old and a landmark in Estes Park. It's a real beauty, isn't it?
8:43 am
MissyMe

Darleen I ordered the Song of Susannah and The Dark Tower but only the last book came. The Song one apparently got lost in the mail so I had to reorder it from my book club I'm sitting here looking at the Dark Tower book antsy to start reading it
8:44 am
Miyavi_fan

Une, if you were talking to me, then...hard core?! moi?!
8:44 am
DarleenMB

I'm lost, Granadan, sorry. But I've read The Stand and it was my all time favorite until I read IT. The Dark Tower series is off all on its own.
8:44 am
MissyMe

Granadan I've ready that one about 7 times...
M-O-O-N... that spells obsessed!
8:45 am
Bubbles

afternoon/morning all
8:45 am
Uneaixoise

miyavi, was actually referring to Darleen saying she couldn't get past the first chapter of gerald's game :-)
8:45 am
MissyMe

Morning bubbles :)
8:45 am
granadan

i WOULD LOVE TO DO THE CASTING FOR A FILM OF THAT. lARRY WOULD HAVE TO BE kIEFER SUTHERLAND (YOUNGER). tHE WALKING DUDE WOULD HAVE TO BE THAT CHAP WHO SANG IN \sPANDAU BALLET... HE HAS THE EYES AND GRIN.
8:46 am
granadan

Flaming caps lock
8:46 am
DarleenMB

LOL, Man I thought you were getting really excited there for a moment!
8:46 am
Miyavi_fan

Okay, cool...I thought it didn't make much sense, but nobody else seemed to be responding ^_^

hey, I'm just arrogant :D
8:46 am
MissyMe

granadan The T.V. miniseries, The Stand, was wonderful...I identified with the actors with their characters immediately
8:47 am
granadan

I dodnt know it had been done!

*frantically starts tapping google*
8:48 am
Uneaixoise

haven't seen you around much lately, miyavi . . . were you on vacation? or just logging on late at night?
8:48 am
DarleenMB

Speaking of The Stand, SK actually lived in Colorado for a while way back when. Visiting Estes Park and the Stanley is where he got the idea for the setting for The Stand. just fyi.
8:48 am
MissyMe

Rent it if you can...Stephen King is a hit or a miss when he puts his books to film but this one is a winner. Randal Flagg is scary....everyone just fits their character so well...
8:48 am
evanonut

miyavi!
8:49 am
trishtrash

MissyMe... I thought they could have done a better job with Harold Lauder & Frannie... the others were mostly spot on, though.
8:49 am
Bubbles

hi missy, how are you?

Not sure if i should start this puzzle or do what i'm paid to do!!!
8:50 am
Miyavi_fan

Une, I've been skiving a little ^_^

Hey Eva! How are you? :)
8:50 am
MissyMe

Trish...I thought the actor that played him was great. He started out wimpy and whiney and developed very well throughout the series. :)
8:51 am
MissyMe

Fine today Bubbles, and you? This puzzle is full of words with odd suffixes but was fun to do.
8:51 am
evanonut

peachy dandy miyave - just checking in.

* crosses self at thought of miyavi sky diving *
8:52 am
evanonut

* tries to eat oatmeal - can't do it - runs to kitche for a waffle *
8:52 am
trishtrash

Heh, each to their own :) I read him as burning with angst and frustration and intellect... he seemed wimpy in mind as well as in spirit on the show. Lack of spirit was my problem with Frannie, as well.
8:52 am
Bubbles

good thanks, think i'll give it a go
8:52 am
Uneaixoise

miyavi, had to look that one up in the English-to-American dictionary!
8:53 am
Miyavi_fan

sky diving?! is this something I should know about? lol :3

incidentally, I will sky dive...if there's a crowd of j-rockers waiting for me at the bottom ;)
8:53 am
Miyavi_fan

oops! Sorry Une :) What's the American equivalent?
8:54 am
Uneaixoise

"playing hooky" is supposedly the American equivalent--but don't stop--love learning all these Britishisms!
8:54 am
MissyMe

Trish...I'm with you on Frannie. But the read I read Harold in the book he was extremely intelligent but self-conscious, low self-esteme...I thought the actor pulled the combination off well, and slowly became menacing as he gained confidence in himself
8:55 am
MissyMe

Okay Bubbles...I'm here if you need any clues :)
8:56 am
Miyavi_fan

Right ho! I'll November that next time I come up the apples and pears to go on my box. Though trying to understand some Yankee speak can drive a Brit sixes and sevens!

*beams smugly*
8:56 am
Bubbles

thanks, might have to take you up on that seeing as bobsta's no longer around for me to nick his words!!!!
8:56 am
Uneaixoise

understood every word based on lots of old Brit movies on TV!
8:57 am
MissyMe

I enjoy listening to Cockney....such clever expressions!
8:57 am
Miyavi_fan

*sulks*

8:57 am
MissyMe

Bubbles...lol
8:58 am
Uneaixoise

aaawww, miyavi . . .
8:58 am
Bubbles

i'll never be able to finish a puzzle again!!! But don't tell him!!!
8:58 am
DarleenMB

Gah, I'm going brain dead here. Had to do some searching... speaking of horror writers ... anyone read Robert McCammon's Swan Song? If you liked The Stand you'll like this one.
8:58 am
Miyavi_fan

Missy, you have a mutton pie for the sylvia plath? you good steeple. better watch out for all the bobby n' peelers though! *manic laugh*

okay...even I know that makes no sense :/
8:59 am
MissyMe

awww Bubbles I didn't finish yesterday's because I was busy helping hubby putting in some shelves.
8:59 am
trishtrash

Missy, I wish I had felt the same thing, since that's what happened so well in the book. I just didn't buy his 'evolution' as it were.

If they filmed the Dark Tower, who would you want to play Flagg? (since I assume the actor from the Stand would be a little old for it)
8:59 am
Miyavi_fan

*sticks out tongue*
9:00 am
granadan

Nope - Ive been reading quotes from the series - and a lot of it isnt in the book (and yes, Ive got the unabridged version). I hate it when they start adding to dialogues for effect.
9:00 am
MissyMe

Miya! lol
9:01 am
MissyMe

Trish...I can't think of his name right now but the actor you plays the darker Wizard with the long black hair in the Potter movies...He would be great
9:02 am
Miyavi_fan

Missy...but what did I say?! *confused*

このよりよ ある、 魚の表面か。 今私は嘲笑する!
9:02 am
Miyavi_fan

wah! what happened there?!
9:03 am
trishtrash

omgsnape!? I mean *cough* alan rickman. A bit camp, but lovely choice, Missy :)
9:03 am
Bubbles

i never normally get to play at the weekend, we've just bought our first house so i definately won't be playing at the weekends, or evenings. Damn!!!
9:03 am
efor1124

morning everyone! :)
9:03 am
MissyMe

Trish, do you have a choice? And I can't imagine anyone doing justice to the series...its so involved! Maybe Stephen King could hand the reins to Peter Jackson :D
9:04 am
Uneaixoise

miya, when I worked au pair in Paris with a Brit friend from Gloucestershire, I learned LOTS of new words and phrases . . . I vividly remember how shocked she was that I didn't know what she meant by "taking the mickey (or p***) out of someone"!
9:04 am
Bubbles

hi efor
9:04 am
Miyavi_fan

Je ne peux pas comprendre le ce non plus. Je ne sais pas pourquoi j'introduis au clavier français. Veuillez l'accepter juste...
9:04 am
Miyavi_fan

lol Une!!!
9:05 am
Uneaixoise

mais qu'est-ce que tu racontes, miyavi?! ca n'a pas de sens!!
9:05 am
MissyMe

Bubbles...how nice for you. Are you all moved in or still living out of boxes?
9:05 am
MissyMe

Hello efor :)
9:07 am
Bubbles

wont be moving in till probably march, the house needs alot of work doing (exactly what we wanted) the house hasn't had any work done to it for at least 30 years.
9:07 am
MissyMe

The one British phrase that just threw me when I first heard it is the expression Brits use when they telephone someone, they "knock them up"...this phrase has a VERY different meaning across the pond.
9:08 am
MissyMe

ooo Bubbles...I'd love to have an old fixer upper. :)
9:08 am
Miyavi_fan

C'est mon petit secret ! Je colle hors de ma langue à vous.
Désolé. Je suis un enfant désagréable...
9:08 am
Miyavi_fan

*bangs head against desk* Babble is NOT foreign language friendly
9:08 am
trishtrash

Missy, I always though John travolta would be a good match to that part. He does 'fake friendly, with an undertone of lunacy' so very well. But now I may be sold on Snape ;)
9:08 am
Uneaixoise

tu es dingue!
9:09 am
Miyavi_fan

Dieses ist besser. Es gibt weniger Akzente!
9:10 am
granadan

Trsh, he would be spot on, or the chap from spandau ballet, but just cos his voice is madder
9:10 am
FMitch

MissyMe - that phrase has the same meaning that you refer to over here but also refers to when you went round to a friends house and knocked on the door.
9:10 am
Uneaixoise

oops, you just stepped outside my linguistic abilities!
9:10 am
MissyMe

Snape has that slyness, about him that I see in Randall Flagg. Secret thoughts play all over his face when he gives his lines, especially when he smiles.

Interesting joice, John Travolta...
9:11 am
Miyavi_fan

...er...le gasp :D
9:11 am
Uneaixoise

LOLOLOL!!
9:11 am
MissyMe

FMitch...so i can mean both...getting a girl preggos and knocking on someone's door?
9:12 am
Bubbles

its going to be great once finished, so glad that bobsta and my dad can do the work, otherwise it would be a nightmare.
9:12 am
Miyavi_fan

Je ne peux pas aider mon ignorance !
9:13 am
Uneaixoise

as-tu appris le francais a l'ecole ou en France, miyavi?
9:13 am

Missy... lol, I'd keep hearing Rickman as the sherrif in Prince of Thieves.... "... with a SPOON'
9:13 am
MissyMe

Bubbles, I'm glad they're up for it. You'll have to post pics online after the task is done :)

Wow, Harp, sounds great! I love to ski, but by some bizarre twist of fate I just never get to do it locally :D
9:34 am

Toe...the one he made that translates the puzzle into the first two letters of each word, the points for each and other stats...

Is it cheating to use it?

Missy, it also spits out all the words! : )
9:35 am

Miya - you'll be happy to know I can pullup translation.com faster than I can find babble-words. I have been decoding your French as you type it. Mine Canadien francais is underused.
9:35 am

Missy, I think they were :) Can't remember the name of the song, though. Most likely "I love you baby"

Just a wild guess

skiing changes your whole outlook on those cold dark wet days known as winter.

lola ACK! I wouldn't want that! Maybe he could modify the program to just give us what he usually posts in General topic on BA

Lol Sushi! I wish I'd thought of that when an internet friend was talking to me in Spanish...

Indeed it does, Harp...winter is my favourite season anyway, though :) Possibly because my birthday is in it, and coming up :)
9:37 am

Toe...lola just said the program also spits out all the words! If he could modify it so it doesn't and sell it to us he wouldn't have to worry about posting it on BA any more. :)

9:52 am

TSM that makes two of us. I do not care for JA, never have. Not that I KNOW her or anything just don't think much of her acting abilities. But Brad seems to just glow with his new family. He reportedly said a couple of years ago he wanted a big family, 6 or 7 kids. And he's 40. Jen is 36. Do it now or don't. So now he's with Angelina who loves kids and plans on adopting one from every continent.

10:10 am

Well in case you were curious, Angelina had a 10 year romance with another woman, even while she was married. Not only was she with another woman, she got into self mutilation with the woman. ICK!
10:10 am

The only part that wigs me out is the cutting :( not cool
10:11 am
Babbler

is that true, Toes? For real?
10:11 am

Ouch Toe! That's so sad... Self-mutilation is a sign of low self-esteme. I hope she's grown strong enough to get over it
10:11 am

Between Angelina's wackiness, Madonna's weirdness... wonder what they are going to tell their kids when they get older!!

She called it quits with the woman a year after adopting her son Madox. So her and Brad must me happy together.... now :)
10:12 am

*reading frantically* I'm translating from Japanese as fast as I can...it's an awful thing to have happened though, the band have split up now but had a lot of lineup trouble...the guitarist died of accidental suicide in 1998, which lead to the suicide of a lot of fans :(
10:13 am
Babbler

Madonna's not telling her kids anything..... and by the sound of things, they don't want to know either! Lourdes just wants a 'normal' Mum......
10:13 am
MissyMe

lol Jen Madonna's always given me a good laugh. If she was a man and old she'd be considered eccentric.
10:13 am

I know what kind of life are these kids getting? Spoiled, and not enough attention? Learning that anything goes because of what mom or dad's name is?
10:13 am

Miya...I have never heard that expression before, accidental suicide?
10:14 am
Babbler

Miya - accidental suicide? hmmm. Sad to hear about the fans. dear dear.
10:14 am
ToeSockMonkey

M_Fan - that is so sad :( *eyes well up with tears* Lets save the world! Wonder twin powers activate! lol ;) Honestly it is heart breaking to hear. Makes you want to do more about things like that doesnt it? Help out...
10:14 am

Uh huh...when you are stressed, tying something loosely around your neck is supposed to relax you. The guitarist tried it...while drunk :(
10:15 am

10:15 am

Toes, not sure that applies to Madonna's kids? She's coming across as a fairly strict mother.

Miya...that IS sad :( I feel sorry for the parents who have had to deal with the death of their children for such a frivilous thing...(not meaning the death of the guitarist was frivilous but what a thing to kill yourself over!)
10:16 am
Miyavi_fan

What, about the something around neck relaxing you...thing? Lots of fans think it was a murder, though. Hide had no reason to kill himself
10:16 am
Babbler

do you know, I've never seen 'Mommy Dearest'! I must borrow it and have a look one day.

It's like former Playboy playmates... Grandma? What did you do when you were younger? Well, dear, I posed nude in unatural positions for the men of the world to ogle!

*comforts M_Fan with a big hug* Oh honey it's alright! You can do so so much just by telling others. It's amazing what a few words can do to help!
10:17 am
Babbler

lol Jen!!! (I know I shouldn't laugh..... but that's funny!)
10:17 am
MissyMe

Jen...lol I've actually thought about how they would word that to their grandchildren!
10:18 am
Miyavi_fan

I agree, Missy...he has such a sad story, though. As a baby, he was actually abandoned...at school he was bullied because of it. I think that's why, years later, there's still a museum established by the government of Japan as a tribute to him...it's like he always battled against the odds

harpjane

So, what would the Waltons think about Aneglina and Madonna?
10:19 am
lola100

Yeah, but that doesn't have any bearing on whether you are a good mom or not. I think we all did some wild things when we were younger that we would rather our kids never heard about : )
10:19 am
Miyavi_fan

Awww, thanks Toes :) *biiiig hugs* If my tears start soaking through your clothes, just give me a poke and I'll stop :)

They would have better things to think about!
10:20 am
Babbler

Miya, what's this guy's name?
10:20 am
MissyMe

Faye Dunaway practically ruined her career playing Crawford in that movie. Other actors became incensed with her portrayal of the Hollywood icon and she had trouble finding work
10:20 am
Babbler

Missy..... aaaah, so that's what happened to Faye! I always wondered why she wasn't around so much.
10:21 am
MissyMe

harp good question. They would probably invite them both in for some apple pie and a hug
10:21 am
Miyavi_fan

Babs, it's Hideto Matsumoto...he was always called Hide though. The band's name was X Japan, though he also had a successful solo career.
10:22 am
MissyMe

Babbler...their reaction to Ms Dunaway puzzles me because the movie was based on a book written by Crawford's daughter. The actress was only playing a part...very strange
10:24 am
Babbler

Miya, in Wikipedia, it says they closed Hide's museum last Sept.....
10:24 am
Babbler

Missy, I remember the controversy around the film. The papers were full of rows and disputes from various parties.
10:25 am
MissyMe

I think the real problem was the believeability of Christina Dunaway's account of her mother...most took her story of abuse with a grain of salt
10:25 am
Miyavi_fan

yup, it went down in September. I know loads of fans signed a petition to stop it, but they closed it even so. Very sad
10:30 am
Miyavi_fan

*points to icon* refresh, and that's Hide *sniffles*
10:30 am
MissyMe

Miya...it sure seems like he's had a tough life. I feel sorry for him having to go through the abandonment and now facing this injury.
10:32 am
ToeSockMonkey

Sorry getting busy with patients here
I will be back in a bit :)
10:33 am
Miyavi_fan

*nods* he was a DUDE though. He was expelled from school for rebellious behaviour when he got sick of the other kids for picking on him and lost his temper just a teeeny bit. But he had the last laugh, I guess :)
10:33 am
MissyMe

k Toe cya soon :)

ACK Miya...I mean the other guy....not Hide...poor Hide is dead...I got it straight now
10:35 am
Babbler

Miya - just reading the rest of the wikipedia site - I have heard of people using a towel to pull their heads to relieve pain in neck/shoulders. One of my friends used to do it,but she put the towel under the base of her head and got someone to pull, so there was no danger of asphyxiation. Weird Hide should try to do this will so drunk......
10:35 am
Miyavi_fan

lol! Confusing, I know :) But at least the drummer is still alive. And famous enough to have met the pres of America. *smug*

wow...now I'm actually being smug on someone elses behalf :D
10:35 am
MissyMe

Some people purposely choke themselves by hanging to enhance sexual pleasure...a few deaths have occurred from this practice
10:36 am
Babbler

MIssy, I was thinking of Michael Hutchence too.
10:36 am
Miyavi_fan

Well, he was a weird person Babs :) Worse still, after his death report came out, several fans were hospitalized for attempting suicide
10:37 am
Miyavi_fan

o_O they what?!
10:37 am
Babbler

in wikipedia, it says two fans actually succeeded in committing suicide, the others survived, thank goodness.
10:37 am

Can someone please help me out with the fa5/18 and fa6/30?? : )
10:38 am
Haz1558

fa 5/18 - a type of drama in which all kinds of silliness happens
10:38 am
Anj

*glides into log* Of course babe : )

fa5/6 - both do do with unintentional comedy, especially in a situation where it's out of place
10:38 am
Miyavi_fan

*nods* brainy Babs! :) The saddest thing for me was watching the rest of the band play one of their old ballads, Forever Love, at Hide's funeral.
10:39 am
MissyMe

Miya, by choking during organsm it's supposed to increase the intensity

Yes, Michael Hutchence is a good example, Babbs

10:39 am
Jen

lola, it's a false show, or a type of light play... then add a consonant
10:39 am

All - mrpresident requested the theme for 26th be Australia Day. I've moved Marbles to a later date. :D
10:43 am

It's never intentional, just sad really...

10:49 am

X_X
10:54 am
MissyMe

ey 4/ 6's
ey + ending sounds like the word "jazz" but with a vowel and a consanant that ssssounds like a "z" at times
second ey sounds like when you get your anger up, your ire...spelled differently

10:54 am
Haz1558

ey - add vowel and pluralise
10:55 am
Anj

Babbler, might have been. My memory is struggling, although I do remember some rather tasteless jokes that came out about it at the time...
10:55 am
Jera

Ugh... I need the fish for some of these... I'll have to turn in my kilt for not seeing the cr5...
10:55 am
Babbler

I found it all distasteful, Anj. I saw the main headlines and stuff, but I didn't delve too deeply. All too disturbing!
10:56 am
Jera

I have the ey4 where you add the first vowel & pluralise... is there another, Haz?
10:56 am
Haz1558

Jera, which to 4 do you need?
10:56 am
Haz1558

10:57 am

11:14 am

Anj, add a vowel to the or5 before it; if you don't have that one either, the def. is:A sheath formed at the node of a stem by the fusion of two stipules, as in the rhubarb plant
11:15 am
MissyMe

Fingers here's another clue:

co8/45
what the center of the earth is called, it's co**, (drop the "e" at the end of the word), + "o" + the first ta4/4

As long as I'm on a roll, how about clues for the DE8-45 and the Fe8-60?

Oops. Just got the Fe8.

de 8/45: one who de 5/12's
fe 8/60: past tense of fe 6/27 (animal useful for hunting rats)
7:08 pm
Judi

Hmm. The only De5-12 I have is the one that means to "prevent". So, Cybernan, that clue doesn't work for me.
7:11 pm
ExWren

Judi, build on that one
7:13 pm
Babbler

hi all! :)

I just had an idea for a theme - The Tarot. Would that be ok, or is it too scary?
7:13 pm
cybernan

That's right -- add the suffix that makes it mean one who prevents (don't forget to double the final consonant!)
7:13 pm
Judi

Oh, duh. The 2nd R threw me. Got it now.
7:18 pm
cybernan

Don't know anything about it, Babbler. I think the themes are beginning to be a bit much -- the icons wind up looking so much alike when the theme too specific making it more difficult to pick out the person you are looking for in the log (including myself!). Maybe we should just save the theme idea for special occasions.
7:25 pm

Thank you cybernan, I just get used to an icon and they all change again.

OK.... I guess nobody liked my baby shower...... or can't you tell what it is? It's a man in the shower holding a baby.... OK... I guess my sense of humor is in a world all its own.....

GreyWoulf

harp -- take the plural r4/4 and put the t in front, that will give you a 5 that you can drop the s for to get the 4

GreyWoulf

Sorry harp -- it was a bit of a stupidly phrased clue

Sweet!

Good night peri :)
10:08 pm
GreyWoulf

It is VERY difficult to focus on the grid when Kirsten has 'Inside the Actors Studio' on with Robin Williams as the guest of honor :D
10:08 pm

peri -- have a great night! Sweet Dreams! (*Hug*)
10:09 pm
cybernan

Need any clues, Eastern? -- I'm leaving soon also.
10:10 pm
EasternBlue

Don't think so...course I haven't hit the 'wall' yet!! BJ's list is a lifesaver at this point!!
10:12 pm
GreyWoulf

And I'm still here, c-nan -- so it should be safe
(unless EB needs the 4 c's I haven't found yet) ;)
10:12 pm
cybernan

I'll stick around for a bit -- playing another game on the side.
10:14 pm
EasternBlue

Woulfie - I'm almost finished with the c's...

thanks c-nan!! so far so good.... : )
10:16 pm
GreyWoulf

does the co8 build off the 4/9 like the 6's do?
10:17 pm
EasternBlue

woulfie - no....

20 mins. of monkey typing for me!!
10:17 pm
GreyWoulf

Thanks -- at least now I won't waste time on that path :)
10:17 pm
cybernan

no it doesn't...

co 8: co + spin around (as a turntable)
10:18 pm
marigold

co8 - To rotate in conjunction with another body
this is the best i can do. GW
10:18 pm
GreyWoulf

Thanks c-nan :) one to go!
10:18 pm
EasternBlue

but here's a clue for you...

when a king or queen is crowned, they go through the 'Co_______tion.....

if they are that person, they would be the co_________

then drop the "N" and replace with a T

convoluted, but maybe it'll help!!
10:19 pm
EasternBlue

OR....

look at the better clues below...


at this hour - I don't think as well...I was doing the phonetics on it differently!!
10:20 pm
GreyWoulf

Hi marigold! --- how are you tonight?


EB -- LOL :)
10:22 pm
marigold

Hi GW - i am doing very well. How about you?
10:24 pm
GreyWoulf

Pretty good, marigold -- Mama and baby-to-be are fine, Daughter is adorable, I have my health --- what more do I really need? ;D

Oh, and I am finished with the grid!
10:26 pm
cybernan

Din, Din, Dong!, GW
10:27 pm
marigold

GW I am glad that everyone is doing great. I am finished as well.
10:27 pm
GreyWoulf

c-nan -- what is the other game you are playing?
10:27 pm
cybernan

A mindless game of cubis!
10:30 pm
GreyWoulf

I don't think I've played that one yet
10:31 pm
GreyWoulf

So --EB -- how are you doing? Looks like you are the only one left to finish --- no pressure ;)
10:32 pm
cybernan

Bye for now, see you at the flip :)
10:32 pm
doxy1lover

EB isn't the only one left to finish, I'm still working on it.
10:32 pm
GreyWoulf

So long, c-nan -- see you then (*hug*)
10:32 pm
EasternBlue

I had to watch the news for a bit...some info I wanted to catch....5 ar's to go!
10:33 pm
GreyWoulf

marigold -- did your son appreciate the info I gave you?
10:33 pm
mab

I'm not done. I can't stay awake long enough to get very far! It's so frustrating.
10:34 pm
GreyWoulf

Hi mab -- why so tired, if I may ask?
(*hug*)
10:35 pm
EasternBlue

phew! pressure's off...others have more to find too!!

Hi doxy! How're the granddaughter and mamma?
10:37 pm
doxy1lover

doing just fine. I think they are planning to spend the day with me tomorrow. So I get to play with baby all day. Woo hoo!!!
10:38 pm
GreyWoulf

Sounds like a great day, doxy :)
10:39 pm
mab

I'm not well. Moreover, it's so cold in my apartment that even though I'm wearing four tops and a fleece jacket (with hood), a scarf, two pairs of leggings and five pairs of socks, I'm still cold and want to be under the covers. Oh woe.
10:39 pm
doxy1lover

a lot better than today. Was real busy at work.
10:40 pm
doxy1lover

so sorry to hear that mab. Drink something hot, that might help a little.
10:41 pm
mab

ooo, I'm going to do that right now.
10:42 pm
EasternBlue

mab -
a hot toddy & a warm *HUG* for you!!
10:42 pm
EasternBlue

woo hoo!! done!!
10:43 pm
doxy1lover

yay EB
10:43 pm
GreyWoulf

A (*BIG WOLF HUG*) for you, mab -- Very sorry to hear that you are unwell :(

Yay for EB!!!
11:13 pm
doxy1lover

All finished.
11:14 pm
GreyWoulf

Y ay for doxy!!!!

Wow it sure is quiet all of a sudden...
11:14 pm
mab

If anyone is still out there, may I have clue for RE 8/50?

Hello? hello hello hello.......
11:16 pm
mrpresident

re + re624
11:16 pm
GreyWoulf

re8/50 -- re+ re6/24

Thanks, pres.
11:17 pm
GreyWoulf

Hi mrp -- how's your side of the world today?
11:19 pm
mrpresident

Hi mab, hi grey!! Pretty wet and wild weather we are having....
how is everything on your side!?
11:20 pm
mab

C C C COLD!!!
11:21 pm
GreyWoulf

WAY too cold for mab -- uncomfortably chilly for me, mrp
11:22 pm
mrpresident

I have to say the chill factor is zero here! ie, doesn't exist!!
At work... toilets are broke and we have an ant farm growing out the back room! Hate it when that happens!!
11:22 pm
GreyWoulf

mab -- when I read our post re: what you are wearing Kirsten suggested that you consider electric socks if it is at all feasible for you -- multiple layers of socks can actually restrict the blood flow which will contribute to feeling cold
11:23 pm
mrpresident

...or.... get the cat to sit on your feet
11:25 pm
EasternBlue

Thought I could stay up for the flip...eyes keep drooping in sleepiness....will catch you all tomorrow(hopefully!)!!

Swee t dreams...stay warm...

Nightie Nite all!!
11:26 pm
mrpresident

yeah, have to go home for the flip... this computer sux!

nite eastern!
11:26 pm
mab

You guys are sweet, GW. That's a good idea. None of my socks are tight, however. They are mostly huge man socks - if I pulled them up tight the heels would almost make it to my knees. My feet look like fluffy shoe boxes.
11:26 pm
GreyWoulf

EB -- been there, sold the rights, got shafted on the royalties :D --- have a good night's sleep and see you tomorrow! (*Hug*)
11:27 pm
mab

Night Eastern! Bye mrpres!
11:27 pm
EasternBlue

mab - sheepskin slippers...definitely warm & cozy!!
11:28 pm
harpjane

last word, or 6? anyone?
11:29 pm
GreyWoulf

mab -- We are glad to hear that you are not being restricted, though we both agree that you would probably find walking around easier in the electric ones :)
11:30 pm
GreyWoulf

or6 - "A mechanical model of the solar system."
11:33 pm
harpjane

Done! Thank you all!
11:33 pm
mab

Wow, that's some word. Glad I googled.

Thank you so much for the excellent suggestion. I'll have to take it under financial advisement however (cat tx, car falling apart, blah, blah).
11:34 pm
GreyWoulf

Yay for harp!!!


mab -- that is why I phrased it as 'if feasible' --- I understand completely about having to be frugal
11:40 pm
GreyWoulf

mab -- need any clues?
11:40 pm
mab

GW: I'm sure with the baby on the way you know about the scrimp factor. Thanks for the clues too. Think I'll just stop there and do something else for a little while.
11:43 pm
GreyWoulf

Sounds fair, mab -- will look for you at the flip -- since it is so quiet I will go take care of my normal night time rituals -- (*Hug*)
11:47 pm

11:51 pm
mrpresident

ro7/36 I mean r + oy6
11:51 pm
GreyWoulf

mrp -- when are you traveling home? or have you already?
11:51 pm

11:53 pm
GreyWoulf

mrp -- I wish I lived that close to my job :)
11:54 pm
mrpresident

My husband travels an hour to work... I bought my business next to home so I could be close to the kids they needed me
11:55 pm
GreyWoulf

That's cool -- what kind of business?
11:57 pm
mrpresident

New and Secondhand baby goods...
11:58 pm
cybernan

Did everyone finish?
11:58 pm
GreyWoulf

Too bad we aren't neighbors ;D
11:59 pm
mrpresident

you can google me for 'secondhand baby goods sydney' on www.google.com.au
11:59 pm
GreyWoulf

all but mab, c-nan --- she's just too wiped out and too darn cold to finish :\
