oooh there's a word very like the one I was complaining about not being in the grid earlier. different beginning

The good thing about having re and in in the same grid is that you can make a word out of them!

gah, got the last in ... the one which ends in e. Didn't know that was a word!

A discerning cat. I never could get her music (not that I tried) but I concluded that anyone who could try to wear a swan dress didn't deserve to be understood.
5:02 am

I agree. She is a kitten of great taste at an early age

Hi Atalante
Meant to ask yesterday, are you going to post yr undine pic on yr web as I would love to have a look at a bigger version, the icon is so small.
6:23 am
Douglas

I just learned a new word, with a Scandinavian origin, uff da!
6:24 am
amandacath

let us in on it, Douglas!
6:24 am
Atalante

I wish it was mine!!!!!! Its by Waterhouse, an artist whom I simply adore. A bigger version is here: http://www.johnwilliamwaterhou se.com/images/content/waterhou se/hi/150.jpg
6:25 am
Douglas

It's one of the words in the grid that I've never seen before...I was bluffing, seeing if it would take a Spanish number, only to be told it was a type of whale!
6:25 am
FMitch

I bet you could do a wonderful interpretation of it in your own wonderful style.
6:26 am
Atalante

it is - one of the smaller baleen whales
6:26 am
Atalante

*adds to the list* :)
6:26 am

What's the whale start with?
6:27 am
Douglas

I put a picture of an inia up at Crossword Bebop yesterday, that was in yesterday's Babble...

Did you see the latest effort? It severely hampered my Babble efforts a few days ago! http://www.deviantart.com/devi ation/31424463/

6:28 am
Douglas

I couldn't resist when I saw the words "hairy snout"
6:29 am
amandacath

Ah, that one - had it already. That's one on my list of "no idea what it means but babble always takes it" - thought it had something to do with earthquakes!

it was one of my mom's. his name was "Mr. Cat"

Hi Eva :) It's a photo of a sea holly I took - love its blue flowers ...
6:37 am
Eva

Think I'll stay with the cats. Don't really have a thing for shoes. Is there a specific scientific term for shoe fetishism?
6:38 am
cliffopa

eva - Mr. Cat's fur was very odd. felt like a wild animals, coarse. we used to wonder if he had something wild in his lineage.
6:38 am
Atalante

3 re's to go
6:38 am
Eva

Never heard of a sea holly before. It looks just like a globe thistle. Is it a water plant?
6:39 am

Eva - also known as eryngium - not a water plant, but does look like a thistle ...
6:43 am

Oh, wait...I'm receiving a message from Karl on my implant chip...

6:46 am
Eva

86 left to go and gotten very sluggish. Off to feed Merp and take a walk. Not very inviting out there this morning. Back on with the hat, mittens, boots, scarf. But I've never seen as many robins as this year. Flocks of 20-30 all in one place. Can't wait for the peepers to start up.
6:46 am
cliffopa

yay atlante!!!
6:47 am
Atalante

now just to rest to go LOL! *groans*
6:47 am
Uneaixoise

eva, re the robins, don't you think they get bigger and fatter every year?!
6:47 am
cliffopa

the robins have invaded my neighborhood too. about 40-50 in my back yard right now.
6:47 am
Eva

just so I can be thouroughly depressed....how many re's are there Atalante? Don't want to look at the lists yet.
6:47 am
Atalante

32 apparently (though there are rumours of 33). I've heard 32 more though
6:48 am
Atalante

well, I'm hoping there's 32! Haven't looked at the list to confirm
6:48 am
Eva

Groan. only 12 to go then
6:48 am
Atalante

but for once there aren't any weird weird RE words. stupid ones, yes, but nothing utterly out of the ordinary
6:49 am
cliffopa

i don't even have half the re's yet. did i already say i hate re's :(
6:49 am
Eva

Merp looks out at the birds and does that wonderful ack,ack,ack,ack thing they do when the blood lust is just too much to contain.
6:50 am
Atalante

*melts* I love it when they do that!
6:50 am
Eva

speaking of stupid-I think the reresay (wasnt that a word a few weeks ago) really took the cake!
6:51 am
cliffopa

oh eva, i miss that cat chatter. the 2 i have actually do the growly-whine thing. kinda scary.
6:51 am
Eva

Not that we live vicariously through our cats. Heaven forfend!
6:51 am
Atalante

I can never believe resit isn't allowed. Its SO obviously a word
6:52 am
Chessy

hear hear Atalante, I can only assume it's hyphenated ...
6:52 am
Eva

Then there's the middle of the night gutteral, "I've got a dead thing in my mouth" hunting victory cry which lets you know you'd better wake up quick or whatever it is will get consumed on the bed.
6:52 am
Atalante

or dropped on your chin as a present
6:52 am
Douglas

Ah, Atalante is in the anger stage regarding the ENABLE dictionary...
6:53 am
Eva

EWWWWWW! really?
6:53 am
Douglas

You know, this is not making me longingly yearn to own a cat...
6:53 am
cliffopa

i have a big himalayan male who doesn't know how to speak real cat. he says oooooww. trying to teach him the me part, but he's kinda old. 15 now.
6:54 am
Eva

I'm in the denial stage...if I chat about cats for long enough the re's will enter themselves.
6:54 am
Atalante

one of my cats once brought me some rabbit intestines in the middle of the night as a present. I woke up with slimy cold stuff on me
6:54 am
cliffopa

that's a pretty awesome cat if he killed a rabbit.
6:55 am
Chessy

Lol Eva ...let us know if it works!
6:55 am
Atalante

he came off better in a fight with a fox once. says everything! he was a big, vicious ginger tom who turned into a kitten around me
6:56 am
cliffopa

i don't have to deal with dead bodies anymore 'cause my cats don't go out. a coyote ate one of mine 3 years ago so i keep them inside.
6:56 am
Eva

Go for it Douglas!

That's extreme Atalante!

Some breeds have strange vocalization patterns. Siamese are known, of course, for never shutting up, and Maine coons, of which Merp is partially, often have very small meows for their large girth. ooowwww sounds quite nice to me.
6:57 am
Atalante

my kitten - who is still tiny - has the loudest voice ever. she is half burmese, and has certainly inherited her mother's burmese howl
6:57 am
Eva

Merp stays inside too because of the coyotes, but gets the poor things which come into the house. I should hang up a sign in mouse saying "Abandon all hope, all ye who enter here".
6:58 am
cliffopa

the oooooowwww doesn't sound too good in the middle of the night when he (beethoven) is angry that the other (zoey) is sleeping with me. scares the cr** out of me!
6:58 am
Douglas

Would a cat eat a vo 4/7?
6:58 am
Atalante

yes. and then probably throw up, at least some voles are pretty toxic
6:58 am
cliffopa

yes douglas, but probably just the insides.
6:59 am
lola100

*lola wades in through all the cat chat*...Hi guys! : )
6:59 am
Eva

Oh, now I know what you mean by the ooww sound. yes, quite eerie. Okay, Merp has given up on the patience and is yowling. Time to really go.

8:27 am

amandacath, I was away changing profiles. how did you open QuickNote?
8:27 am

is the po4 in that combo the person who writes verse?
8:28 am
sprite

Lol, thanks. No, it was the ruby or tawny one. :) Now I got them, pfui.
8:29 am
amandacath

Ok, I'll try again:
the po4/5 you've got, right?
When he/she goes about his/her business, then he/she po8/45, or they po7/32
When he/she is going about his/her business, then he/she is a po8/45
8:31 am
sprite

So it's 4-7-8-8 and not 7x2?
In that case I got them all, thanks :)
8:31 am
amandacath

Umm, let's see if I can explain it - when it's off the screen and I right click on it in the bottom bar, I get the extensions for something to do with my monitor, then I can "send to" my monitor - and boing, it's back where it's supposed to be
8:32 am

Yes Sprite, you're right - I knew I'd make a mistake in there somewhere

12:00 pm

that's okay sweetie, it gets easier with time. the people in the chat log are good at giving clues, you have the list of starting letters... see if you can get 50 words today, and don't worry about getting "all" the words just yet.

12:27 pm
hurshy

lol, that she is. but what it reminded me of was when i called her earlier this year to tell her that this other teacher was sitting in on my class (just for fun and bc his class met there before mine) and making me nervous, and what should i do? and she said "punch him in the face!"
12:30 pm
evanonut

sounds like an excellent lesson on resolving issues to me.
12:32 pm
hurshy

well, it made me feel a lot better than if she had just been sympathetic and said, oh, i don't know, that is a hard situation. :)
12:35 pm
evanonut

precisely, now all you have to do is if he's there and you get all nervous, just imagine you've socked him once and are carrying on with your lesson...

and if that doesn't work, picture him in a speedo

artlady, i agree that a primarily female staff is not a good thing. our staff is primarily female - and we are a viscous backstabbing lot.

True, but my school is in a very nice area.

I've been teaching 30 years and don't feel like it (fortunately for my students!). Unfortunately, many of the younger staff (sorry if I offend anyone, but it's my experience) are into their own thing only. Many of them can't see the larger picture.

12:48 pm
Vicuna

I think art teachers (if I do say so myself) are peculiarly well-suited for seeing the larger picture. We have ( or should have) a habit of integrating all the parts of life.

I'm just glad they're still offering art in schools... they've pretty much eliminated music from the curriculum
12:51 pm

mab, you're right. Our children are being shortchanged. The difference in my district is really sad, although we still have art. I do a lot of art history integrated into art production, history, science...any way i can!

eliminating music is WRONG...and this from someone who wouldn't take music.

both our sons do well academically -- one has some difficulties with physical things and social interactions that the school administration is often unwilling to address proactively.

The hitch with merit-based pay for teachers is that it isn't so easy to judge merit. You can't point to the sales you made, the commisions you brought in, the product you produced...

A public h.s. teacher friend teaches some of his classes in a trailor (trailer?). It seems difficult for governmental bodies to get anything approximately right. And then there are school districts that were good to begin with and were let alone. Quite a range...

1:15 pm
artlady

hurshy, thanks so much, but I have that one, that's the 4th word on the se list. I'm sorry to be a pest...I have the 1st 4 se4's and the words between. I have the 6th se 4 and the words after...(embarassed look on face)..thanks for all your effort.
1:16 pm
artlady

Oh cyb! I should have recognized that one! It's been many years since I did ceramic glaze formulations.
1:17 pm
hurshy

artlady, what i have been saying all along is that you need to add an e to that one, and then another letter for the six to make it a person

yeah, our retired military friends also said the air force was the easiest. my son is an engineer and is going to be doing research and development, so i'm not worried about him serving. he is my only 'birth' child (other 2 are 'bonus' from husband's 1st marriage) and in 26 years he has never been more than 3 hrs away (except for trips out of the country or new england)

sorry, stupidly-phrased question, mikey--you can be german and live in germany! (lol) i was thinking maybe you met your partner in germany when you were travelling and stayed there because our stupid country (usa) stinks when it comes to allowing foreign gay men to marry american partners and stay in our country... (sorry, have friends who had to move out of america to be with their foreign partners :-()

et 9 is plural of the 8/40
7:56 pm

Sorry Freckle, msiread your question. et 9 means to "go on and on forever"
8:00 pm

Well, I also need three pe's. Anhelp for the first pe 4/5?
8:00 pm
caloli

I've stuck on the last few te's ... anybody still giving clues?
8:00 pm
72 Temple Owl

ingge - opp of out
8:01 pm
inge

Which te's do you need? I have them all.
8:01 pm
72 Temple Owl

2nd pe7/32 & 8/45 below it please?
8:01 pm
caloli

The first pe4/5 is similar to the tube which carries blood around your body. Change the first letter from v to p.
8:02 pm
caloli

I need both te6's, both te7's and both te8's.
8:03 pm
caloli

Inge, I think the se6/18 you're looking for is related to the French river. Add an s to the end.
8:05 pm
caloli

pe7/38 sounds like a shampoo brand. It won't happen overnight but it will happen. pe8 is the plural of it.
8:05 pm
inge

First to the te's. Most begin with the same four letters refering to an age group (13-19) or meaning very small.Pe 7/32 is the plural of the male appendage.
8:05 pm
bendamalina

te 6/18 is past, present, and future...plural of te5/10
8:07 pm
faeriekae

how about pr 5/18 and pr 6/30 please.
8:07 pm
caloli

thanks - I got both te6's now will work on te7 and 8

pr ... you leave bread to do this when you're baking it. Also, you pr*** a theory.

Caloli, that word(s) I have. I need the next se 6/18 ( I hope)
8:10 pm
faeriekae

Ok got the pr 6/30 but not getting the 5/18? Sorry
8:10 pm
caloli

Did you try adding an R to the end of the river, Inge?
8:11 pm
inge

te 7/32 think of the stuff you dilute paint with, and then plural for the 8.
8:11 pm
caloli

Take the N off the end of pr6, Faerie.
8:12 pm
faeriekae

Calio - Thanks, no on to the dreaded re's......ugh
8:13 pm

9:51 pm

i had no idea there were themes on these... what's today's theme, then?
9:51 pm
Twinkie

or is the theme relegated only to icons, not the puzzle?
9:52 pm

today's theme has been shoes and boots.

not everyone "plays dressup" -- but it's kinda fun. Babbler posts the themes on her profile page
9:52 pm

cute rainbow, stidmama
9:52 pm

oh yeah-- icons only -- i believe the puzzles are generated randomly!

I give myself a 100-word minimum (or the max in the puzzle), but most days have enough time in between other things to finish the whole shebang

i like to play orisinal games, not because they are challenging, but because they are cute and have nice music

the themes were here a long time before i was! so many of the people here are real gems.

sometimes, when a theme doesn't "agree" with me, I go back to one of the more meaningful personal icons. You'll see cybernan do that a lot, and many others.

not bad for my second try
10:18 pm
stidmama

bendamalina, that is a good number of words for your second go-round. Well done!
10:19 pm
Twinkie

i love the orisinal!!! was playing the cat one just now! (they are soooo like real cats--can't make them do what you want!)
10:20 pm
bendamalina

10:21 pm
Twinkie

10:22 pm
Twinkie

oops, music died--my cats must have gone haywire and i ran out of points. ;-)

good night--enjoy the rest of the puzzle, and see you soon!

10:27 pm

Minski: the third 5/12 is two or more writing implements with an extra vowel. (betw the last cons and the pl curvy letter)
10:30 pm
bendamalina

Whew! Eyes closing at 143. May not seem like many to most of you, but to me it's a bonanza! Thanks for all the great clues. Couldn't have done it w/o y'all! Nite all--sweet dreams. Or maybe I'll just wait for the next grid to be posted--somebody save me!
11:32 pm
ShadowHyrst

Hello and Good Evening!
11:42 pm

knutmeg! how's our princess (and her daughter?)
11:44 pm
knutmeg

Doing good. Tonight is shift night with my husband (we split up the nights before his days off. I get to sleep in our bed. For hours! Starting at either 2am or 3am... I haven't decided yet when I want him to relieve me...

Olivia is doing good tonight. She drank 4 oz in one sitting after breastfeeding, I hope that means she'll be asleep for a few more hours, yet. ;-)
11:47 pm
stidmama

Hope Olivia's growing well -- she is small, as you mentioned earlier today... I know how hard it can be to get a newborn to nurse enough to sleep more than a couple hours at a time.

but my boys were 9.5 and 8.5 pound brutes at birth, so I really don't know what a normal sized baby should weigh at three weeks! Still, we nursed every two or three hours the first couple months with each of them, and eventually they were big enough to sleep larger blocks of time.

knut--it doesn't work?
11:48 pm
stidmama

13 minutes left, folks, need any last minute clues?
11:48 pm
knutmeg

stonington: remove the space in the link. Or go to Angelsong's Resource page on the right, the link is also found there.

I could use the pt word, stid
11:49 pm
stidmama

"any of various compounds that contain the bicyclic ring system characteristic of pteridine"

pt + a way to refer to Ireland (also a girl's name that sounds like aaron)

knutmeg

We're using formula to help us with those cluster feedings, which she is doing a lot recently. By the time I go back to work, we want her on formula exclusively. I know breastmilk is better, but both she and I are having a hard time with the breastfeedings. Plus, I can't pump at work, I work customer service at a grocery store, its impossible to get off the floor!
11:51 pm
stidmama

I know what you mean, knutmeg! I was lucky that after our first I had a private office and could take him along the first few months while I continued to work part-time (he was born with problems, so couldn't send him to daycar); then I left work when my Tom got a job... even so it was hard sometimes to balance everything -- and since he couldn't take a bottle I never had any time off!
11:52 pm
badcat

thank you, stidmama

I still need the long ve's between the poisons and the air duct, and the long et's, if you have them.
11:52 pm
stidmama

take the et 6, drop the last vowel and add -ise, then plural
11:53 pm
stidmama

ve's: add the second vowel to the poison; add the recurvy consonant to the poison; add both to the poison...
11:53 pm
cybernan

Hail to the gang!
11:53 pm

thanks again, stidmama--I always forget to Anglicise!
11:54 pm
stidmama

hi nan! how was the night out?
11:54 pm
badcat

woo hoo right under the wire!!

thanks all, most especially stidmama!
11:55 pm

YAY badcat!

cybernan

Great -- it was just the opening wine & cheese at our golf club.
11:56 pm
stidmama

oh, that sounds so -- elegant! we're still in the pizza and pop circle -- for at least a few more years while the kids are young...
11:56 pm
cybernan

they grow up all too soon stidmama!
11:56 pm
knutmeg

Hi Cybernan!

I have been lucky enough to have my work and my husband's work allow us to switch to opposite shifts, so we don't have to try and afford daycare or nannies or any of that. He also works at a grocery store, same company, different city.
11:58 pm
stidmama

oh knutmeg, that is so nice of them to arrange that for you -- although I know that it means you won't see as much of each other as you like, it will be so good for Olivia! I was glad our kids were always with us or grandparents their first few years... very nurturing.
11:58 pm
cybernan

Hi knutmeg --- you should live in Canada --- mother's get 3 months maternity leave at full pay or 1 year at 3/4 pay -- fathers can also claim up to 6 months at 3/4 pay, but not concurrently with the mother.
11:58 pm
stidmama

don't they, though, nan! I can hardly believe we got Matthew his own screenname for Babble today -- and he got close to a hundred words, I think!
11:59 pm
stidmama

see you all on the other side... :-)
11:59 pm
knutmeg

Oh, my thoughts exactly. It won't be easy, and we aren't pretending it won't be, but we are so glad that Olivia will have the advantage of one parent around all the time for these first years.
