kierlex

i agree debbinia!
12:15 am
kierlex

i need to go take out my contacts, owww.
12:15 am
helenkeller

yes - very addictive - polar opposite of babble - find as many words as you can in 2 minutes (also have 30 sec & 5 min rooms) at iwin.com
12:16 am
kierlex

ohhh so maybe it wouldn't absorb so much of your time?
12:18 am
kierlex

imagine if i did one sit up each time i entered a babble word. i would be like a godess
12:18 am
debbinla

LOL kier! i should do that tooo!

hi7/36 - like the meds you get for hayfever - those are anti-somethings. take the first few letters and find a likely ending
2:41 am
mattygroves

Nice one (you should be able to pluralise it though!)
2:41 am
Cat9x

I agree Matty

2:53 am
Atalante

hi7/36 - like the meds you get for hayfever - those are anti-somethings. take the first few letters and find a likely ending
2:54 am
Atalante

and you can almost get crebain - that would be a good tolkien word!
2:55 am

5:17 am
amandacath

We still know what you mean. At least you haven't descended into text speak.
5:21 am

5:21 am
FMitch

LOL I don't even know how to turn off the predictive text on my mobile (hangs head in shame) - this from a woman who installed a CD drive into last PC and rebuilt it.
5:22 am
Haz1558

My attempts at texting are pathetic. I still insist on using proper punctuation!
5:23 am
Cat9x

it all build's off of ar7/36 peri. from that you will get a ar8/50, then ar9/66 and finally ar8/50. A region of ancient Greece in the Peloponnesus. Its inhabitants, relatively isolated from the rest of the known civilized world, proverbially lived a simple, pastoral life.
5:24 am
Dianne

ar9 - also ar7 & ar8 x 2 - think of a Shopping Ar**** but play with the endings.
5:24 am
ExWren

Oh! I wish I hadn't started this puzzle. I have wasted ages trying to solve the te's (5's and 6). I hate this game!
5:25 am
Haz1558

No you don't, you're just experiencing a temporary dislike. We'll help you through.
5:25 am
periwinkle

thanks Dianne and Cat, so far I have ar4/4 :) Cat, your clue went right over my head
5:26 am
Cat9x

Sorry peri
5:26 am
FMitch

It lulled you into a false sense of security Ex-Wren as there are only 7 x re's
5:27 am
amandacath

and none of them are do-again re's!
5:27 am
FMitch

That makes a change!!
5:27 am
Cat9x

one is, re621, so far that is, missing 11 R's still :)
5:28 am

5:28 am

amanda - inspired clue
5:29 am
amandacath

thank you! ummm...I've got 8 re's...?
5:29 am
periwinkle

and its plural, ar8/50 but stuck finding the ar9 and other ar8 :(
5:29 am
ExWren

I haven't progressed as far as the re's. I always work backwards, so I am only with the te's (JUST got two of them)
5:30 am
FMitch

sorry typo 9 x re's
5:30 am
amandacath

oh, then the one I'm missing must be the do-again one...
5:30 am
Cat9x

think the ending of one who tells comedy Peri
5:31 am
periwinkle

Cat9 found the other ar8/50 just as I saw your clue, still working on the ar9 though
5:31 am
periwinkle

well that was easy, found the plural and got the ar9
5:31 am
Cat9x

plural that and you will have it peri
5:31 am
periwinkle

bbl
5:31 am

There I met an old man who wouldn't say his prayers,
I took him by the left leg and threw him down the stairs.

6:21 am
FMitch

Wonderful, would be considered so politically incorrect these days, wonder if it has an underlying meaning like the "Ring-a-Ring-a-Roses rhyme?
6:21 am
Eva

and for you bizarre trivia fans:Zealous Protestants & Secret Priest Holes
Goosey, Goosey Gander is a Rhyme with Historical undertones - an attention grabber for a nursery rhyme which uses alliteration in the lyrics designed to intrigue any child. The 'lady's chamber' was a room that once upon a time a high born lady would have her own chamber, (also referred to as a solar). The origins of the nursery rhyme are believed to date back to the 16th century and refer to necessity for Catholic priests to hide in 'Priest Holes' ( very small secret rooms once found in many great houses in England) to avoid persecution from zealous Protestants who were totally against the old Catholic religion. If caught both the priest and members of any family found harbouring them were executed. The moral in Goosey Goosey Gander's lyrics imply that something unpleasant would surely happen to anyone failing to say their prayers correctly - meaning the Protestant Prayers, said in English as opposed to Catholic prayers which were said in Latin!

6:23 am
FMitch

Brill Eva - great minds, see my post just under yours.
6:24 am

never knew what a solar was either. I wonder if any children still learn that rhyme? It was right on the cusp of obscurity in my childhood
6:24 am

Very interesting Eva, thanks for sharing that!
6:26 am
FMitch

If I had children I would teach them the same mursery rhymes I was taught and read them the same stories but add current day stuff too.

For anyone thats interested the Ring a ring a roses that I mentioned earlier relates to the stages of the Blad Death/Plague.

Uneaixoise

oh, and i see that Ms. Nin makes an appearance as well
7:10 am
Haz1558

It doesn't give her in the dictionary - I'm assuming it's acceptable because of the medical connection with plaster. (Is that what her head is filled with?)
7:10 am

7:37 am
sprite

True! :)
7:37 am
GraceM

how come "dago" was a word last week but arab isn't?
7:37 am
Jacula

Sue.:D That must've been funny.
7:38 am
Jacula

'asian' isn't allowed either.
7:38 am
Ornith

ok, this do5/16 is driving me nuts. I have the words above and below it, and I know from the count it has to include the P, but I just can't seem to find it.
7:39 am
GraceM

and ptooie should def be in there!
7:39 am
Ornith

Enable is nothing if not inconsistent.
7:39 am
Charm

do5/16 - move along little do***s.
7:39 am
GraceM

or is it ptooey?
7:40 am

I think it's 'cos dago is a slang word so OK (relatively speaking) the others are propper words so dis-allowed?
7:40 am

inconsistency made into an artform for sure
7:40 am
peanut327

7:40 am
Ornith

charm, that's do5/20
7:40 am
Jacula

However, there is a pa6 (a dialect) that's allowed...
7:40 am
Ornith

peanut, the ea's are anagrams of each other
7:41 am
Charm

Same word diff spelling.
7:42 am
SueMagee

Jacula - it was funny , particularly as there was a bit of an argument going on at the time and it was, er, misunderstood!
7:42 am
Ornith

charm, I have one spelling as do5/20 and one as do4/9; I'm not seeing any other possible ones
7:42 am
Jacula

Sue - shame I missed it. I like a laugh.
7:42 am
Charm

do5/16 - the canine + 2 vowels.
7:43 am
Ornith

*blink blink* it's help if I did my math right
7:43 am
Charm

Ornith, the 2 vowels could stand for Lat for 'that is.'
7:44 am
Ornith

yeah, I got it now, I was just being stupid, heh
7:44 am
Jacula

Another phantom: 'oasis'.
7:44 am
sprite

Now I want pagodes.

7:45 am
Jacula

Oh, and 'as**oid'.
7:45 am
GraceM

I'm at 145... may need to go to a list...

Babblers are NEVER stupid. Just temporarily blind.

7:47 am

go7/36 is a strange word...

7:48 am
Charm

7:48 am

7:51 am
Jacula

Hmm, dunno, Sprite. It reminds me I need lunch though. BBL.
7:52 am
sprite

:D
7:52 am
Ornith

the 5/18 and the 4/6 are related to that one, grace. what a mess!
7:53 am
SueMagee

It took me ages to spot it, Sprite! Strangely enough, I got the plural first.
7:54 am
sprite

There is also someone who MAKES those things!
7:54 am
Ornith

man, I really do need coffee or something. or maybe not to think about roleplaying games so much. phantom word: goetic!
7:57 am

7:58 am
carrie5752

what is the di4/5?? Is it really obvious? What does is mean?? I'm feeling a lot of di7/36 at my inability to find it.
7:58 am
Atalante

mine: pterygoid. and saracen - not that that would be accepted anyway!
7:58 am
carrie5752

Mine is stoic.
7:58 am

carrie: you might be on a di4/5.
7:59 am

Still beautiful words.

8:00 am

Carrie, never mind, that is probably just projection from Ornith :)
8:01 am
Ornith

lol, didn't mean that you NEED to be, just meant it as a clue
8:01 am
Ornith

I'm stumped on that di7/36 though
8:01 am
carrie5752

Yeah. Sure. Whatever. ;)
8:02 am
sprite

Di7: someone who writes in a booklet on a daily basis.
8:02 am
Ornith

and sprite, you're the one who said it's what she needs to lose weight :P
8:02 am
Charm

thanks, sprite.
8:02 am
carrie5752

The di7 (which I found whilst looking for the di4) has a common prefix di* that often comes with appear. Then add 4 letters to that that rhymes with the cannine Great ****
8:02 am
Ornith

thanks, sprite!
8:02 am
sprite

Lol Ornith, true! That was 'you' as in 'one'.
8:03 am
Ornith

aha, had the prefix, was looking at the wrong D. thanks carrie
8:03 am
carrie5752

Oh great. Sprite's calling me pudgy too. Yeesh. You put on a few pounds and everyone's a critic!
8:03 am
sprite

And Di7 regard or treat with haughty contempt; despise
8:04 am
GraceM

in8 anyone?
8:04 am
sprite

(((carrie))) it's projection from my side too!
8:04 am
sprite

In + C6/21
8:04 am
Anniebrook

great clue, sprite
8:04 am
carrie5752

That's it. Skim milk in my coffee today.
8:04 am
carrie5752

Still having the cookies though.
8:05 am
GraceM

cool...didn't think that was a word...
8:06 am
sprite

I thought the whole point of skim milk was that you could take more cookies then!
8:06 am
Ornith

hmm, not the c6/21s I've got. didn't really think so.
8:06 am
sprite

Ornith: C6 = make
8:07 am
Ornith

thanks sprite!
8:07 am
carrie5752

Sprite--I had a housemate once who did that. She'd get a box of low fat cookies and eat them all and wonder why she still put on weight. Ah well everything in moderation--except Babble!
8:07 am
GraceM

cr8 is a fun word...
8:07 am
GraceM

think burning logs...
8:07 am
Ornith

and yeah, Grace, the in8 is a theological word.
8:07 am
sprite

I think it is used to paint fences.
8:08 am
Ornith

ah, the fat man!
8:08 am
sprite

I second that, carrie! :)
8:08 am
Atalante

my aunt and I would do that - we'd end up in cafes and have huge pieces of lemon meringue pie - but that was ok cos it was with diet coke LOL
8:08 am
GraceM

oh...I thought it was left behind in the process of burning wood. Shows what I know!
8:08 am
sprite

Lol Ata
8:09 am
amandacath

I'm back for my last 60 or so words
8:09 am
Ornith

I thought so too grace. might be both, though. I always think of it as the man from the Monty Python sketch though
8:09 am
Ornith

Atalante, I always crack up at the people who order a big mac and a diet coke
8:09 am
GraceM

hah! forgot about him!
8:10 am
sprite

It is both, I looked it up.
8:11 am
Atalante

oh yes Ornith! LOL at least we used to do it and not *really* believe that diet coke made everything better :P
8:11 am
carrie5752

Not getting the cr8 clues at all. Anything else?
8:11 am
Ornith

yeah, I always liked the "broken cookies have no calories" rule. though I always wanted to just break all the cookies on purpose then
8:12 am
abe79

diet coke counteracts many foods, including chocolate, candy, and french fries
8:12 am
Ornith

abe, chocolate is healthy now, didn't you hear?
8:12 am
carrie5752

I used to get skimmed milk lattes but a full fat blueberry muffin from the coffee shop. Mostly because I hate artifial sweeteners.
8:12 am
Charm

cheesecake.
8:13 am
Atalante

I always drink diet coke cos I can't stand the taste of regular coke!
8:13 am
sprite

I don't like di4 coke. How about me ordering it and NOT taking it? I can eat 2 big macs then :)
8:13 am
amandacath

Whether d-coke is worth it in the calorie-counting business is neither here nor there, since it tastes terrible!
8:13 am
abe79

i didn't ornith, but with that in mind, i will be sure to eat it more now!
8:13 am
Ornith

yeah abe, they're saying it's good for your heart now! dark chocolate is better
8:13 am
abe79

d coke is definitely an acquired taste (sorry for saying a word before)
8:14 am
kkiln

morning... still puzzled about that CR 8 clue...must be from a different era.
8:14 am
amandacath

One of the cr8's they put on railroad ties, as a preservative, I guess. The other builds off of a cr5/14
8:14 am
abe79

i love dark chocolate....
8:15 am
sprite

Cr8: yellowish to greenish-brown oily liquid, obtained from coal tar and used as a wood preservative and disinfectant. It can cause severe neurological disturbances if inhaled in strong concentrations
8:15 am
carrie5752

wow you're smart sprite!
8:15 am
GraceM

the second cr8 has me stumped...
8:15 am
sprite

Nah, the dictionary is!
Cr8: Curled or ruffled, as the margins of certain leaves
8:16 am
carrie5752

was teasing you sprite. I didn't think your vocab was that good!
8:16 am
Ornith

the second one sounds like what happened to your potato chips
8:16 am
sprite

The last Cr8: something with a 'bite' + past tense of what you would do with it.
8:17 am
kkiln

Thanks SPrite...glad there is wikipedia...
8:17 am
GraceM

ah...good clue sprite!

8:23 am
Ornith

8:24 am
GraceM

I'm still missing a cr6/21
8:24 am
Haz1558

cr6/21 - think of skulls plural.
8:24 am
sprite

One is make, the other sounds like a girl's name.
8:24 am
Ornith

grace, I have skulls and make, missing the last one too
8:24 am
GraceM

8:25 am
sprite

Oh, true, and that one too.
8:25 am
Haz1558

You're welcome.
8:25 am
GraceM

ornith-- sounds like ar6/18
8:26 am
Ornith

oh, it does sound like a girl's name. thanks
8:27 am
Ornith

which makes the 7/32 a latin-style plural.
8:27 am
Charm

barista is not a word?
8:27 am
Ornith

two rs, charm. but try dropping the first letter.
8:27 am
sprite

Sure it is. Only enable doesn't know it.
8:28 am
Ornith

oh, no, it's not 2 r's, it's just stupid enable.

Atalante

aren't they just fabulous! Its funny, I never wanted a traditional wedding dress. When I was about 14 or something, I drew what I wanted as a dress if I ever got married, and my dress was almost exactly that - except with dark green instead of dark red - I was just so lucky that Vicki had set up her business and was doing just perfect designs. (had to be green instead of red as husband is far too much of a redhead for red to do anything but clash horribly)
2:01 pm
GraceM

on to the Ns!
2:01 pm

please tell me you're using the list, Grace, or I shall feel horribly inadequate!

2:04 pm
Atalante

yay for non-traditional dresses! what I *love* about mine is that Vicki made me a dark green skirt to go with the bodice, so I can wear it again and again over the years to posh occasions. It's so beautiful, I'd hate to just put it away and never wear it again!
2:05 pm
bostonmermaid

exactly! I want a knockout gown that I can wear again on our fifth anniversary, tenth, etc...
2:05 pm

how big was your wedding?
2:08 pm
Atalante

if you want something really perfect, I'd suggest finding someone to make it cos then you can customise things exactly - and I don't know about France, but doing it that way was about the same price as getting dresses ready made! and there were *thinks* about 150 people there
2:08 pm

there's always someone around who's willing to give language lessons, either privately or through colleges - you just have to find them, that's the hard part. a few hours actual conversation would do you more good than lots more hours reading / listening to tapes etc

hi gang. Atalante, before I became a babble-maniac, I was an Engish teacher. Although, either is technically correct, the most current form would be 'smelt'.... plus you avoid the 'smelting iron' connotations.

any clues on the ar9?
4:11 pm
thtmotorsports

smelt is a noun, smelled is a verb in the past tense
4:12 pm
jaianniah

Hi, everyone. I just did a "rough" count, and over *70* words end with "S"-, meaning, when all else fails, PLURAL IT!!! Also, a good number end with the Latin plural "ae"- so if it ends with an "A", try, adding an "E" for the plural.
4:12 pm
Atalante

I normally like the t endings, but smelt looks weird
4:15 pm
jaianniah

ar 9 is part of a "family" of words- they are ar7,8,9,and 8. They all have the same root-here is the clue: pitch-penny ar**** + the end of our friends, the Cana*****> Hope this helps!

i think smelt is a type of grain. no i don't mean spelt!
4:16 pm
Haz1558

I've just looked up the dictionary and both smelled and smelt are acceptable past tense forms of smell. But I agree with Atalante, smelled looks better to me.
4:16 pm

To smelt something is to melt it like an ore, like iron....i think....

Atalante, you are right... in the oxford dictionary [British / Canadian spellings] do allow for either 'smelled' or 'smelt'.... but i still like 'smelled.'
