This game has the most retarded dictionary I've ever seen. What congenital form of hermaphroditism (i.e. it don't get no gayer) does this game's creator suffer from?
12:20 am

no shit, and we just found a word and plural that has a link to dictionary.com that doesn't exist

They should have two dictionary options:
a "people who like nonlinear word searches" option, full of normal words, and a "understimulated housewives with nothing better to do than guess obscure words" option.

Ah, I'm back now and it's flipped.

Track I'm listening to now - Katie Melua, modern, but it would have spoken to me when Iwas 18,19...
There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That's a fact
It's a thing we can't deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die

We are twelve billion light years from the edge
That's a guess
No-one can ever say it's true
But I know that I will always be with you

I'm warmed by the fire of your love everyday
So don't call me a liar
Just believe everything that I say

There are six billion people in the world
More or less
And it makes me feel quite small
But you're the one I love the most of all

We're high on the wire
With the world in our sight
And I'll never tire
Of the love that you give me every night

There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That's a fact
It's a thing we can't deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die

And there are nine million bicycles in Beijing
And you know that I will love you till I die

Jac - so she's away right now?
12:53 am
Jacula

No, Dip, she's not gone yet, just dropped that life idea on me her, Dad , her brother and my o/H a coup;e of nights ago.

sorry everyone -- wasn't really ignoring you -- just dived right into the grid! I think it might get a little sticky with a lot of uncommon words.

Seems so, Dipp! Except for Monsters of Rock in June. We've booked that up together - Alice Cooper! Hell!
12:58 am
helenkeller

in the states there is no 'gap year' - i wanted to take a 'gap' year before college & that was one of the very few things about which my mom put her foot down - had to continue with school -
12:59 am
helenkeller

jac - is there a specific band she plans on following?
1:01 am
Dippnall

Alice Cooper ... hey .... takes me back! Can't say I blame her - I wish I'd done more than school-college-work. Oddly enough, though neither of mine has wanted to take a year out.
1:01 am
Jacula

She's worked so hard, Helen this past year, with course work, late into the night/morn. I don't blame her for wanting a break. But. even if she now wants to retro see any of the bands I did back in 70s., she's not always going to want her Mum there, is she? Let's be realistic!

well jac, what she wants & what's good for her may not always be the same thing - - i suppose 19 is plenty old enough to make wise choice, but a person can't always choose someone else's actions, so safety becomes such a large issue

Why not 'poena'? I am pretty sure 'sub poena' is used a lot in english.

Sherb. no it is not, not at all.
But what is Sprite tyring to say to me now? Sprite, whatever you watnt to say you can say on here. I have nothing to hide. Or, you can say it on MSn
1:48 am
Jacula

Sprite - should we discuss it on here in public or i private on msn? What do you think?
1:48 am

My question is clear, I think? You just said "Thankfuly for you all, none of yu really know what that means or is like to go through, and I thank God you do not."
And I wondered, how on earth do you know?

Well, you did ask!

quite a few of the 6's and 7's have that double letter in them if that's any help
2:49 am
FMitch

argh! just realised I don't have any 7's at all. this grid is not as easy as I first thought.
2:50 am

pe 7 is people who write and pu 7 is people who like to make fun.
Me, I need help with the fe's sigh
2:50 am
Jacula

SHE will fell better as soon as people stop trying to tell her she does not know what she is talking about re Alzheimer's and her Dad, She could not give a flying eff what peeps think about other things...
Yea well don't try her 'cos she's in fightiung mode tonight,,,
2:51 am
Atalante

got to go for a bit now to see vampire nurse. quick question for UK people - do any of you know how I can find out my blood group? I know they process it for operations and stuff, but I don't need any of those at the moment - but I do need to find out my blood group
2:51 am
zas

Sorry Jacula. Sounds like you've just gone through something really really painful. I'm really sorry
2:52 am
FMitch

Atalante, it should be in yr medical records.
2:52 am
Jacula

St- seeyour gp nurse or your gp.
2:52 am
helzchux

thanx zas :-)
2:52 am

Hi Atalanta
If you've ever donated blood, they can tell you your blood group
2:52 am
Atalante

the medical records that got lost when I moved down to Kent *SIGH* how they lost them, I'll never know, they were about 10cm thick!
2:53 am
zas

They lost your medical records? That's awful
2:53 am
Atalante

and I've never donated blood - can't with the meds I'm on - but thanks, Jac, I'll ask the nurse - hopefully it'll be one of the nice talkative ones
2:54 am
FMitch

Oh well, see you later Atalante.
2:54 am
Atalante

see you in a bit *hugs all*
2:55 am
bbnaz

At, I would presume that you are entitled to know your blood type regardless if the nurse is chatty or not!
2:56 am
SunnFlower

Nobody said you didn't know what you were talking about Jac, I'm sure you do. To go throgh something like that is awful but awful things happen all the time that's all that was said. It's not a competition to see who has the worst things to deal with, it's all relative and hearing other people's trials and tribulations can sometimes help us through our own but without denying them cos they aren't as bad as someone elses
2:57 am
Jacula

I've loT the will to do this folks, \got to go. Hope to see some of you on The Other Sid3 (real life)

it is indeed bex
3:16 am
SunnFlower

Thanks Mitch, this morning has upset me, Jac you have been unreasonable and I don't like being spoken to like that, this is a chat log that's supposed to be fun I thought. because of "stuff", obviously not as bad as yours Jac, I haven't been on here for a while, now I wish I hadn't bothered this morning also.

3:16 am
FMitch

yes it is bex qu4/9 and you will find the qu is used in 2 a words aq4 and aq5, don't know if it is used in any others yet.

good morning! im finding thid grid very hard today!
3:21 am

Morning, Mel, finding it a bit tricky, words seem to be well hidden today but then you get a run of 4 or 5 and then grind to a halt again , so it's fun really.

3:40 am
albo_gator

Hoo, I'm too sleepy to be doing this. I'm missing fo/4, and I have the depressing feeling that it should be obvious. : / Darn. Any clues?
3:40 am
Pyscho_Puppy

It is obvious. Think of birds.
3:40 am
Jacula

Icon day is 'extreme weather'btw.
3:41 am

How many fe4/8s are there?
3:47 am
The Student

2
3:47 am
Pyscho_Puppy

Okay the first one is easy, the second one is not so simple.
3:48 am
Pyscho_Puppy

It's so random that I don't think there are even any clues for it.
3:49 am
bbnaz

think of the hats worn by Shriners and change the "z" to consonant that follows "g". The word will still sound the same
3:50 am
FMitch

If you have the 1st f4/8 change the 3rd letter to the one adjacent to it
3:50 am
Pyscho_Puppy

Omg bbnaz. That clue was awesome.
3:50 am
bbnaz

dunno, FM's clue was easier.

That's 16 more than when you started, Bex - if you're not feeling well, don't beat yourself up over the grid today.
3:59 am

thanks haz. when i started this i thought it was going to be easy with only 114 words but no it was a trick! :)
4:00 am

PP do you have the two fe4? If so, then drop the final letter on the second fe4 and wind your way around the bottom left hand corner starting with the fe*

Spring is almost here and the sun is shining today, so all is well with the world.
4:43 am

maybe its because i just got up 10 min. ago, but i'm just not seeing many words i recognise in this grid.
5:10 am

its the grid ... not you ...

Cliff - the words aren't as obvious as usual on this grid, but keep looking.

Atalante - we use a lot of Scottish words over here!
5:30 am
Haz1558

Though not the fe words much!
5:31 am
Atalante

my husband was actually telling me yesterday about the connection between northern Ireland and Scotland yesterday - I get so confused with Irish / N Irish politics nad religion!
5:32 am
cliffopa

i'm not sure i'll be able to go listless very long today. i only have about 35 words.
5:32 am
Haz1558

It's complicated! But we have a very rich language over here because we have English, Ulster-Scots and Irish gaelic influences.
5:33 am
Atalante

my husband lived in Belfast for a good while, so he can at least explain the basics so I can understand them!
5:33 am
Haz1558

Cliffopa, never worry about going listless. That was a concept dreamt up by masochists like hurshy, Atalante and Sprite!
5:33 am
hannah lou

morin all
5:34 am
Haz1558

That's interesting, Atalante! I hope he didn't have too many bad things to say about the place, (fingers crossed)
5:34 am
Atalante

and we all grab the lists when fed up of being stubborn anyway!
5:34 am
Haz1558

Good morning, hannah lou.
5:35 am
Atalante

I actually met him for the first time in Belfast :) He loved the place - generally - apart from living on the murder mile for a year and getting shot at while at uni!!
5:35 am
cliffopa

i know you are right haz. just trying to challenge myself a bit. i give in when i go 15 min without a single word.
5:36 am
Atalante

thats the way to do it, cliff. push yourself a bit, but then gracefully give in when it becomes all too much!
5:36 am
Haz1558

Eek - that sounds nasty! Things are a lot quieter now. In fact there is a huge amount of building work going on so you would probably see great changes - depending on how long it has been since you were across.
5:38 am
Atalante

I'd love to go back ... I keep trying to persuade husband that we can come over this summer for just a pootle round the place - he can show me everywhere he used to know, and I'd like to see Belfast again, and then Dublin as well
5:38 am
Haz1558

Cliff- I think your approach is right. It is to be enjoyed, rather than endured. Although there was a grid last week which was horrible even with the list!
5:39 am
lola100

Good morning everyone : )
5:39 am
Haz1558

You should come, Atalante - the centre of the city is looking great. I had a school friend who came across after almost 30 years away and she couldn't believe the transformation.
5:39 am
Haz1558

Good morning, lola!
5:39 am
Atalante

the only reason I do try and not use the list is that (being utterly modest here) I can normally look at the lists and just immediately find the words, and its not so much of a challenge
5:40 am
cliffopa

this game has been great for me. as a result of my 2nd auto accident in '02 (rear-ended by someone doing over 95 mph) i have had great difficulty finding words in my head. i find i don't have to concentrate as hard when speaking now.
5:40 am
Haz1558

How long have you been doing babble, Atalante?
5:40 am
Atalante

oh that's wonderful! there really is something to be said for mental exercise, I'm sure
5:41 am
The Student

Does anyone else find that they started slow and improved? Im hoping this isnt something you're either great at or no good at.
5:41 am
Atalante

this will sound silly, but I'd love to see the Harland and Wolff crane things again. They are so enormous! When I was there, they were looming out of the mist looking like giants
5:42 am
cliffopa

it took me 2 days to even figure out how the game was played :)
5:42 am
Atalante

about as long as sprite ... however long that is! we joined at about the same time
5:42 am
Haz1558

My sister worked as a temp in the shipyard and has actually been on top of one of the cranes! The shipyard has more or less closed down but Samson and Goliath are to be retained as they are almost symbolic of the city.
5:42 am
Atalante

but then I'd played Boggle incessantly since childhood before this!
5:44 am
Haz1558

I think babble is a game that everyone gets better at the more they practice. I'm routinely entering words now that I had never heard of pre-babble.

OMG-Shorty you are 100% correct. Jacula and Spirite really did get into it. I hope Jacs comes back. She is so upset. I'm worried about her.
6:46 am
Atalante

worry about sprite too!
6:46 am

Haz - um yeah...but it's was ok. I didn't get mad or get my feelings hurt so what the heck. I'm just thankful it was an argument like this mornings.
6:47 am
Haz1558

Jacula will calm down eventually - it happened before with another player she got mad at.
6:47 am

Actually I had no argument at all. Was just ask to encourage Inge to stay and finish.

I know I was like whoa!
6:50 am
knutmeg

dunno which is harder. playing with one hand while feeding baby, or playing on two hours of sleep (probably less), or begging said baby to please, please, please, just sleep for a smidge more. She's been fussy all night. At least she doesn't scream when she's fussy...
6:50 am
inge

Ok I read the rest of the log now. You mean they wanted more clues? Oh well, happens to the best of us.
6:51 am
faeriekae

Inge - don't you ever quit the game when you only have 5wrds left to find. Even though I would. *teehee*
6:51 am
faeriekae

They did want more clues. Exactly and you were tired. So therefore I understand.
6:52 am
Haz1558

knutmeg - don't overstretch yourself, please. Your health and the baby's welfare is more important than the grid!
6:53 am
knutmeg

Need something to keep me awake while I'm feeding her. Every time I try to put her down, she wakes up within 20 minutes or so. Really frustrating.
6:53 am
knutmeg

And I'm not even sure she's hungry any more. >.<
6:53 am
Haz1558

I take it you are nursing yourself?
6:55 am

Nut - here, give her to me for awhile and you go get some rest. I held Shorty grandbaby last night. We passed her around the room. *grin*
6:55 am
knutmeg

actually doing both. having issues with nursing, but I want her to get the benefits of it, so when I can take no more, I switch to a bottle (per our doctor's instructions)

Nut-she is so tiny....it must be very fustrating. sorry.
7:01 am
Haz1558

I remember the frustrations of a newborn! No lights on the forehead to indicate what the problem is. You've done well to nurse her so far, but don't beat yourself up if it becomes too difficult. Could your mum give you any advice?
7:01 am
shorty

Afternoon Mikey ;)
7:03 am
shorty

knut My Grandson is 8 weeks and weighs 13 Lbs he was never 7 lbs outside of the womb
7:04 am
knutmeg

Not too sure about my mum. right now at least I know she is asleep. She had major back surgery the day after I gave birth so she is still recovering, I try not to call her this early. Although, I may give in this morning. I think Liv is just extra gasey... she has been burping a lot, and just spit up. So that may explain the fuss. Gonna see if she goes to sleep now with a pacifier.
7:05 am
cliffopa

knut, could it be colic? i swear my son never slept more than 1 hr for the first 3 months.
7:05 am
knutmeg

shorty- I was really expecting a big baby. Then she was born at 7 pounds 6 ounces and lost 13 ounces the first week, so she got down to 6 pounds 9 ounces. She's so very tiny. And Haz is right, there is no light on their foreheads indicating needs.
7:06 am
Haz1558

Okay, leave your mum for now and see if Olivia will settle. Don't pick her up straightaway if she whimpers, she may just need time to settle. And then, take a nap yourself.
7:07 am
knutmeg

doctor says its a distinct possibility that she has a mild form of colic. She doesn't scream inconsolably for hours on end, but she does have these periods of refusing to sleep longer than an hour or so.
7:08 am
shorty

wow 13 oz the first week
7:08 am
Haz1558

See if the doctor can prescribe some drops to help. I was extremely fortunate in having babies who didn't have colic, but from friends I know how distressing it can be for all concerned.
7:08 am
cliffopa

i think i cried more than my son. i was only just barely 20 when he was born and had no idea what was going on until he was almost over it.
7:11 am
knutmeg

She just fell asleep next to me. I'm *not* moving her until she's been asleep for more than 20 minutes (please hit deep sleep, Liv). If she keeps this up much longer, I will be calling the doctor. She has been like this since 8pm last night. The two hours of sleep I got was the longest she slept for.
7:12 am
knutmeg

Cliff--I know the feeling. Its too bad babies don't come with instruction manuals when they pop out. Too much guessing!

OK here it goes... Lickety has his clue page and he got a bit of flak from someone the other day about his efforts... don't know why.... ?? I think his clues are great!
if you guys use his clues and think they are worth anything.... can you please email him.
The flak he got gave him a bit of a downer, and an email from one babbler might lifted his spirits heaps!
He did this for US and he loves babble... it was just so rare, but it would help him

Please pass it on if you see fit!
Lickety is very good and proud of babble!! and he takes nothing from it... not ever!

mr p, i'd be happy to email him. i actually switched from bj's list to lickety's when bj's was missing and now i prefer it. the ability to put the words in the boxes is great, and also helps me to be a better clue-giver.

I'm not really playing but just saw the discussion of lickety's list. My best friend and I both use it daily and love it!!!! I love the tick boxes and the ability to type in the words. Really helps in the longs list of re words to be able to see them alphabetically.

thank you all! hurshy... it is so sweet of you to say that. it did hurt him and it is just not nice to rubbish another babbler especially their hard work.

Dippnall-I'm so excited for Spring to get here I can hardly stand it. I love to garden "flowers" I have 3 gardens so far plus I have a small green house in my basement to start seeds. I've got Castor Beans in the green house right now and some seeds my Mom gave me but she wasn't sure what they were so I guess I'll find out. Can't wait.

Jera - I have a couple starting in my Kitchen window also. I don't know what they are called but they are really deep purple tublar shaped flowers when they bloom. I planted them last year and they were out of this world so when the seeds popped I grabbed them.

faerie - it's mainly down to my long-suffering husband, but our patch is wonderful at the moment. Lots of varieties of doffodil/narcissi, crocus, hyacinths, periwinkles, tulips, etc... makes you glad to be alive! All of the trees are beginning to blossom, too. When my son (now 18) was small he refered to blossom as 'pink leaves' - the terms stuck! (To his embarrasment!)

Hi Mikey
11:45 am

what is a galoot?
11:45 am
caitlyn

ch it rhymes with what you would catch an animal with +s
11:46 am
ch1212

thanks caitlyn, I swear I tried that, but probably without the 's'
11:46 am
hurshy

it's just... a galoot! i think in this case he means his dad? but it's just a saying... 'you big galoot'... affectionate, perhaps slightly teasing term
11:47 am
caitlyn

I tried it about 5 times without the s

Hi smithchick lol leslieann
11:52 am

i don't see how the number of one's sides is relevant to how much it hurts to fall down stairs...
11:52 am
stidmatt

'Sup Smith?
11:53 am
LeslieAnn

you never know where you're gonna land
11:53 am
smithchick

Hey, stidmatt...why aren't you in school (says the maternal me)?
11:53 am
hurshy

does anyone?
11:53 am
smithchick

Cause you have that many more sides to suffer pain in, hurshy...DUH!!!
11:54 am
LeslieAnn

well, i'm pretty sure i'm always going to land on my face ;)
11:54 am
hurshy

(except cats of course)
11:54 am

Spring Break.
11:54 am
smithchick

Would you rather two sides hurt or ten?
11:54 am
smithchick

Oh, okay stidmatt...you're off the hook. Ours was three weeks ago.
11:54 am
hurshy

but if the sum total of the pain is the same, leslie might just have more on each of her 4 sides than i have on each of my 12

11:55 am
LeslieAnn

this existential convo is making my head hurt ;)
11:55 am
smithchick

I always land on my butt. It's something to do with the way that I am weighted, I'm almost positive. I used to just wobble like a weeble.
11:55 am
LeslieAnn

lol smith
11:56 am
smithchick

Hmmm...I see what you are saying, hurshy...you're pain would be diluted across the many sides, as opposed to concentrated on just four.
11:56 am
stidmatt

Yes. LOL
11:56 am
hurshy

see... so it IS more painful to be a square... you hurt even without falling down any stairs.

smith - i love weebles!
11:57 am
smithchick

Oops, I mean your pain...not you're pain. I don't know if you are pain to anybody or not, but you aren't to me, hursh.
11:57 am
hurshy

exactly smith... glad you got my drift :)
11:57 am
hurshy

thank you smith :)
11:57 am

*sigh* and all this time i thought it was hip to be square
11:57 am

stidmama will be on soon. I just heard her chair from the other room scrape on the floor. We'll have another player on soon!
11:58 am
smithchick

Well, you know, Weebles wobble but they don't fall down. It's hard to beat that.
11:58 am
Schroeder

Hi all!!!
If you were a weeble you wouldn't fall down the stairs, cause....Weebles wobble but they don't fall down
11:58 am
hurshy

it may be hip - or it may cause you to break a hip
11:58 am
smithchick

The dreaded chair scrape... My children do not like to hear it because it usually precedes an angry mother having to interrupt her babbling to thump some skulls.

OK everyone I am back, in case you were going to talk about me. He, He (which really means good bye in Finnish) I decided to play this grid after all. About 25 words to go. Got most of them from your clues since this a.m.
12:10 pm

I don't really know much about weebles, smithy.....

I suppose I could start a discussion about Babbler's top five favourite movies.....

Mine being:

(in no particular order)

1. Sin City
2. 2001: A Space Odyssey
3. An American Werewolf in London
4. Pulp Fiction
5. The Terminator

It's never too late, caitlyn. I bought my kids weebles just so they wouldn't be traumatized as adults as you and Schroeder are now.
Hi, Inge!!
12:12 pm
boreetos

interesting and wonderful films. The only one I would disagree would be 2001. Though it is an amazing movie, I enjoy it as more of a novelty, and I think of my favorite movies as those that I can watch more often and not get tired of.
12:12 pm
hurshy

ooh fun, here are mine:

bringing up baby
clueless
princess bride
star trek VI
cold comfort farm
12:12 pm

Hey! Movieman, where does Star Wars (any of them) fit on that list? Or Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, or James Bond.
12:12 pm
smithchick

I've only seen three of those. Never seen Sin City or Pulp Fiction...Despite my love for John Travolta.
12:12 pm

I would instead put Fight Club on that list, perhaps.

Of course, I could also mention other movies like The Fly, Shaun of the Dead, GoodFellas, Clerks, The Others (Nicole Kidman should have been Oscar-nominated for this, rather than Moulin Rouge), Bubba Ho-Tep (instant cult classic), Ong-Bak, (the action scenes are amazing), and Hellboy (Ron Perlman has never been better).....

I really can't pick favorite movies, there are so many good ones! I would start my list with The African Queen, LOTR (the whole series), Harry Potter 1 and 4 (though the books are better), and the star wars saga of course!

Although some people didn't like GF 3, it should still be held into the same light as 1 and 2. After reluctantly taking control of the family business and pretty much losing touch with everything he holds dear, his ultimate search for redemption turns around an bites him in the ass for the sins of his past. Karma, baby...don't mess with it!


I really wish they would re-edit them in chronological order (and leave in the good stuff! unlike the USA network).

1:23 pm

I am stunned at how many movies movieman owns. How wondereful. And movieman, I loooove the tv series Charmed. It often didn't make a lot of sense and it certainly was not profound, but I looooved it. Do you have that one too?
1:23 pm
Haz1558

pe4/6 - looks like a clown's name or a game you'd play with small children. Ends in a vowel
1:23 pm
movieman

'Fraid not, mab.....

Never really took much notice of it as it happens....

Never mind.

1:31 pm
inge

OK that pe 5 was my last one too. pe + 3rd person sing. of to be + secnodn vowel
1:31 pm
bluephlox

pe 5 is a dumb word with 3 vow and s cons - it is the same as a very elegant po word that you already have. you just have to change a letter
1:32 pm
movieman

De Palma's not bad, I just haven't seen enough of his films....

I've only seen Scarface, Carrie, and the Untouchables....
1:33 pm
inge

Boy that pe 5 is related to the po 5, almost same meaning!
1:35 pm
bluephlox

can anyone give a hint for the fe 4 - and not the one that rhymes with the environment friendly toyota
1:35 pm

1:54 pm
mari

Stidmama - no babysitting grandchildren so it's very spasmodic tonight
1:54 pm
movieman

Before you left, stidmatt, I was gonna say that if your brother was at least in his mid teens, then he might require help.....

But seeing as he's 11, he's just probably holding on to what remains of his childhood.....
1:54 pm
stidmama

oh -- i'm just babysitting (teensitting?) my own... but still pretty sporadic... :-)

6:35 pm
cliffopa

bbnaz, i went back to the chat i heard just to make sure i was not hallucinating (i've had a few cocktails this evening and i don't usually drink) here is what she said:

sorry! will get over it no doubt and lickety is too sweet to let this one go! He is the nicest person in the world... and that is coming from his WIFE of ten years!!


he sounds like a great guy. here is what started the conversation:

OK here it goes... Lickety has his clue page and he got a bit of flak from someone the other day about his efforts... don't know why.... ?? I think his clues are great!
if you guys use his clues and think they are worth anything.... can you please email him.
The flak he got gave him a bit of a downer, and an email from one babbler might lifted his spirits heaps!
He did this for US and he loves babble... it was just so rare, but it would help him

Please pass it on if you see fit!
Lickety is very good and proud of babble!! and he takes nothing from it... not ever!

7:07 pm

congrats weegee.

i think the major problem with this grid is that so few words are related. there is no flow to it.
7:08 pm

Yvo, I just tried the Germany option, but it doesn't render a flag! :-( back to the USA setting for me!

7:27 pm

peri - one of the an 6/18's is an + plus those things on the side of your head that you listen with.

the other is an + an alternate spelling for what you often have to do when working in a flower bed (also a man's name.)
7:28 pm

Peri - first name of the astronaut. Guy who walked on the moon. A + N _ _ _ Armstrong.
2nd An6/18 is: An + ea4/4.

Hyper - we don't know all of the answers/words, although some of us are better at the game than others. it does get better with practice
7:41 pm

hyper - my secret is i start the puzzle at 6 am, lurk around when i am at work for all the great clues, then ask desperately for help. (plus i use the handy tools available through babblers anon and lickety)
7:41 pm
HyperStitch

i've been using the clues from this chat to help me solve the puzzle. what's weird is, when I do want to find the definition by clicking on the question mark icon next to the word, even dictionary.com gets stumped sometimes, telling me the word doesn't exist! :-)
7:42 pm
cliffopa

nut, you always make me laugh. i hope you are on wed evening. my son leaves that day. i will be weepy.
7:42 pm

I'm German.... does that count? Mikey, what do ya think?
8:02 pm
abe79

leitlady: ne 6/30 means that the first two letters are 'ne'; the word is 6 letters and worth 30 points. it's a way of giving hints
8:03 pm
Jera

leitlady... it's a clue code... rather than just blurt out the answers, we give each other clues & oh-so-clever little hints. The main clue code is (for example) pe4/5... the word starts with pe with 4 letters in the word, with a point calue of 5 for the whole word.
8:04 pm
leitlady

thanks for info. back to the board.

8:14 pm
Eva

na6/21?

leitlady-I am working from BJ's list, which you can find at Babblers Anonymous. It gives the second letter for each word and it's length and point count. I usually don't use it until I;m close to the end and just can't find any more on my own.

How about fantasy? My personal fields of personal preference are Fantasy and science fiction -- and one of my favorite series is the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett. Therer are a lot of them, but well worth the time --- they are that rarest of all beasties... the quality humorous fantasy series. The quality is consistently high and each book is better than the one previous. And best of all, they do not have to be read in order.

na 4/4: repetitive word often used for grandmother or nursemaid... think the dog in Peter Pan

Yeah, once Raya goes down, she sleeps for about 6-8 hours now. She just turned 6 months last week, though
She's always been a great night sleeper

10:15 pm

Paigey is 15 months old now. Today I put her down for a nap at about 10am after she almost fell asleep watching Sesame Street. About 20 minutes later she was wailing so loud and so strangely that I went in to check on her (I usually just ignore it and she falls asleep pretty quickly). She was standing up in the corner of her crib wearing nothing but a diaper. I had put her down in her fleece footed zipup sleeper. I know she figured out zippers, but she has never undressed herself before. That was one nap she was NOT going to take. She didn't end up taking a nap until 2pm.
10:15 pm
dinoshadow

Ahhh, the things we have to look forward to!
10:16 pm
Minski

Onpaki

i'd like a clue for ar7 please?
10:16 pm
GreyWoulf

Minski -- the only way I used to be able to get Kristianna to take a nap during the day was for me to take a drive in the car.... and even then the longest she slept was a little over an hour
10:17 pm
Minski

AR7 ~ someone who has a lot of guns could be said to have an AR7
10:18 pm
hootowl

Hey I keep telling you! Just because granma says so - It ain't necessarily so!
10:18 pm
stidmama

i can't believe i am falling asleep again! time for a quick nap, back later.
10:19 pm
hootowl

All babies do not take long naps. All babies do not start walking at 2 1/2. Allbabies do not talk at 3. Stop trying to shove them into a box!
10:19 pm
Minski

I don't know how I did it but Paige is a great sleeper. She goes to sleep between 7 & 7:30 pm and sleeps usually until between 6 & 7:30am. She used to take 2 naps 1.5 to 3 hours long but now she is down to one 2ish hour nap a day.

Don't despair, it will happen for your kidlets too.
10:19 pm
hootowl

later mama.
10:20 pm
Onpaki

Thanks MInski, got it!
10:21 pm
GreyWoulf

Hoot -- you will get a kick out of this one -- Mimi is as much of a packrat as you are though she is cleaning out her nooks and crannies now -- she brought over a bunch of booklets on child rearing issued by the US Dept of Health from 1968 -1972
10:22 pm
Minski

Hoot ~ I didn't walk until I was 19 months old. Paige is 15 months old and still doesn't walk although that hasn't slowed her down any. She has 2 words: mama, dada, ba (hello, goodbye, dog, cat.....ba means many things). THe last place she will be put is in a box (she would figure out a way to climb out of it).
10:22 pm
GreyWoulf

It is definitely interesting to compare the tone and quality of the advice between then and now :)
10:22 pm
dinoshadow

I don't think any of us were putting kids in a box - just relating our experiences
10:24 pm
hootowl

Hah - My son walked at 1 yr and didn't talk til 3+. And that was cause his cousins forced him to! If we are all individuals why do they insist babies follow some kind of schedual!??
10:24 pm
Minski

My Parents and In-Laws are always giggling about all the "terrible things" they did to us when we were kids. We sat in the front seat. We rode unrestrained in our porter cribs in the way back of the car with all the windows opened. We rode our bikes without helmits. etc. etc. It's a miracle we all survived.
10:25 pm
hootowl

Oh don't get upset with me please! Just my soapbox for the night! Everyone does things their own way and the kids survive. Not sure about the parents but the kids do!:D
10:27 pm
GreyWoulf

Don't sweat it, hoot -- the hazard of the chat log -- it can be very easy to misinterpret someones intent due to the lack of visual and auditory cues that a face to face meeting provide
10:27 pm
GreyWoulf

Lord knows we have had our fair share of mistakes here in Babbleonia
10:28 pm
Minski

Noone's angry with you Hooty. Every child is different. Some people need the statistics to feel better. Others blow that stats out of the water and laugh at them. I would rather laugh and not worry. Paigey is normal and healthy and happy and wonderful and I'm sure all of the babble world's children are also.
10:28 pm
hootowl

Well lets see...I was raised in Brooklyn so it was stickball and all other games in the street. Catching a tow from a bus or trolley on roller skates. Going just about anyplace on our bikes. All nonos now. Too bad.

Oh, Raya is only going to crawl so she can chase the cats and dog around the house. She is on the motivational track! The sad part is, she hates tummy time, so I don't know how she'll learn to crawl ;)

Oh this is a great conversation! But are you Babbling or just babbling?
10:30 pm

My mom told me that before this whole car seat craze they would put the kid in the foot well of the passenger's seat if there was no one to watch/hold them in the back

Both cats just jumped on me. I guess it's time for bed. SEe you all tomorrow.

Don't worry, dino -- it will happen -- in her own time ;D


Hoot -- the answer is YES :D

Hag sameach, Minski! Night.
10:31 pm
dinoshadow

Like I said, she's motivated to chase the cats. I know it'll happen. I've already started baby-proofing the living room in preparation
10:31 pm
GreyWoulf

later, Minski (*Hug*)
10:32 pm
Minski

su6
start with the su4/5
move on to the su5/12 by adding a vowel to the end
move on to the su6/24 by adding a consonent to the end of the 5
10:32 pm
GreyWoulf

OK, got the su6, but that blows my clever plan to get the su7 out of the water! :D
10:33 pm
hootowl

And then there was summers in the country... Walking everywhere. Fires in the woods. BB guns. Axes.
I'm sitting here counting scars and realising how little we were watched!
10:33 pm
Minski

su7

Very little conns on this grid woulf
10:35 pm
GreyWoulf

dino -- now that is where I am a bad parent according to the books -- I do the most minimal baby proofing -- I cover outlets and try to pad the sharpest corners-- other than that I rely on something which seems to have been forgotten by most of the books... I pay attention to what my children are doing
10:37 pm
dinoshadow

That is all I have done - outlets and padded my coffee table. I am not bolting my bookcase to the wall, I am not strapping the TV down and I will not hide all the cords. I do, however, plan on putting up little v hooks to wrap the blind cords around. Even my cat gets into trouble with those
10:37 pm
hootowl

Thats what I did + removing all breakables within reach. It's amazing how many pieces a 3" piece of pottery will break into!
10:38 pm
hootowl

And you were always in eye range!
10:38 pm
stidmatt

I just want to say that the Red Green show, made in Canada has come to a finale.
10:39 pm
dinoshadow

OK, gotta drive hubby to the airport at ih-dark hundred. Night!
10:39 pm
GreyWoulf

I agree with that as well, my blinds are out of reach so I have no concerns there -- but I didn't even pad the coffee table -- Kristianna has thunked herself a couple of times now and has already made it to the point where, unless it is a really bad bump or comes as a complete surprise, she is more likely to laugh it off than cry :)
10:40 pm
hootowl

Dino - I never heard about the bookcases but if they are that unstable it's much more likely to be you under them than a 50 lb baby!
10:40 pm
GreyWoulf

So long, dino -- safe travels :)
10:41 pm
torgone

No more Red Green? Say it ain't so!
10:41 pm
hootowl

Night Dino - take care
10:41 pm
GreyWoulf

stidmama -- I don't know the Red Green show, so am unaware of the significance of your statement--- sorry :\
10:42 pm
hootowl

Think they are just tired of us talking about babies! :D:D:D
10:43 pm
hootowl

We could talk about tornedoes. We were missed twice in one week!
10:43 pm
mab

i'm sure not, hoot. what's a red green? (brown, I know)
10:44 pm
GreyWoulf

sounds incredibly thrilling in the fullest meaning of the word, hoot

Well we had a whole string come thru Memphis last week but it split 2 ways and one string headed north and the other south. We got a spectacular light show but not even rain!
Then on our way back from Knox I was tdriving his truck & listening to the radio and they were issuing warnings again. Pulled into a rest stop and told him what was happening and we decided to get off the road and headed for a motel. Same thing! Split up and half went north and half went south!
10:49 pm
hootowl

Yes you are spink
10:51 pm
GreyWoulf

Sounds like someone was watching over you, hoot
10:51 pm
stidmatt

Well, it was it's 300th episode and is pretty funny. It was a pretty fun show and I did the math. I knew that the current season was going to be the last. Bill was there, Red and Harold hugged. It would have been the last season if it was 15, 20, 25, or 30 episodes in a season. So, most likely.
10:51 pm
hootowl

But especially in the north there was devestation. You really ought to watch the news. Houses just piles of splinters, semis on their sides and at least 2 auto dealerships totally wiped out!
10:53 pm
hootowl

I came to the conclusion long ago that I will be nit-picked to death! No spectacular exit for me. I win $2.00 jackpots, not $2,000,000. Pain in the butt!
10:53 pm
GreyWoulf

oops, sorry stidmatt, just noticed my error - didn't mean to confuse you with your mama -- I forgot to look past the stid in your name :)
10:53 pm
stidmatt

It's okay.
10:54 pm
mab

300 episodes sounds like a lot. Cool that you get some Canadian tv, stidmatt.
10:54 pm
stidmatt

We are in Washington, and get CBC.
10:54 pm
hootowl

Well that solves that! Didn't know there were 2 of them!
10:54 pm

It also shows on KBTC which is PBS.

Bye Matt - nice to meet you
10:56 pm

I'm envious. I'm thinking maybe they run a lot of Brit programs. Yes?
10:56 pm
GreyWoulf

Good night and have a great tomorrow!!
