I should think not at this hour, flosey -- and mine is rapidly shutting down
2:21 am

I agree kier, baths do tend to make you feel faint if it gets too hot. And showers don't do that, don't know why.
2:21 am

Yes I asked Dr_G if he could add the date joined field and he did it within 24hrs.

I'd like that.

2:38 am

2:49 am

I'm having fun already!
2:50 am

If you ever come back, we will have to meet for a drink and exchange kitty stories :)
2:50 am

definitely heard of it! I think we must have gone almost right past your house! well, I'll be back over there before too long, I hope, so then I can come and say hi now I know you're there!
2:51 am
sprite

Cat and Ata both said a wo-ord, Cat and Ata both said a wo-ord. :)
2:51 am
Cat9x

It's wonderful sprite! Its the mansion of Sarah Winchester, her hubby was the Winchester of gun fame. She went nuts and kept building and building onto the house, very rich, beautiful Victorian, they say its haunted :)
2:52 am
Cat9x

oopsie sprite :)
2:52 am
Cat9x

Let me know if you ever make it back Ata, we will definitely meet for a time! :)
2:52 am
sprite

That certainly asks for a visit, Cat!
2:52 am
Atalante

I will make it back! I get over there about once a year on average!
2:53 am
Cat9x

Poor woman, turned into a recluse, thought the spirits of people killed by her husbands weapons came back to haunt her. Very tragic story.
2:53 am
Cat9x

wonderful Ata!
2:56 am
Cat9x

She was only a tad over 4 feet tall, and built tiny doors that opened to nothing, hiding places all over, walkways that went nowhere, all in trying to confuse the spirits. One of the most beautiful homes I have ever seen. I adore anything Victorian, homes, clothes, you name it. My dream is to one day own a Victorian home. Ok, I've rambled on enuf, back to the grid!
2:57 am
sprite

Sold!
2:57 am

That I don't know, Ata, I would assume you can, don't see why not.
3:02 am
Haz1558

Good morning sherb - Dr_God has been generous and given you a big grid for the weekend.
3:02 am
Cat9x

It's a Landmark here, and I would expect them to allow photos.
3:02 am
Atalante

wow - bet you could get some amazing pics in there of all the little doorways and passages and stuff
3:02 am
sprite

Sometimes it is forbidden, because they sell commercial pics.
3:04 am
Cat9x

I bet you could. It has been on TV quite a few times too, people trying to solve whether or not Sarah Winchester really is a sprit there. The people who work there talk about things that are moved, noises etc they themselves have seen and heard.
3:04 am
Cat9x

True sprite, but I will find out, I am curious now :)
3:04 am
sprite

Well, if I were a spirit, I would feel invited to a house with several doorways and passages built just for spirits!
3:05 am
sherb

hi FMitch :)

hi Haz :) ...I've started to prefer the smaller grids... *whispers* I think my Babble addiction might be waning...
3:05 am

LOL sherb! Heresy!
3:05 am

so would I! sounds a perfect place for spirits!
3:05 am

This is a wonderful grid though Sherb, even if it is large,
3:05 am

What therapy did you get Sherb?

Yes it does Ata! I love things like that, spirits, hauntings, can you tell? lol

LOL Haz
3:07 am

I suppose you have to want to be cured of an addiction. I haven't reached that stage yet.
3:07 am

I need someone to kick me next time I try 'create'.

Nor have I Haz :)

Thanks :)
3:08 am

10 hours days at work... finally decided I can work or Babble, but not both... oddly, it feels like a liberation, and now I can enjoy when I do play...
3:10 am
Haz1558

Well, enjoyment is the main thing and if you can babble without feeling guilty or stressed, then that has to be good.
3:10 am
sprite

I must admit I only play for fun, never feel like I have to. It's just too much fun. If I have the time, I play. :)
3:11 am
Haz1558

But then it takes you less time than the rest of us! But I'm glad you play for fun.
3:12 am
sprite

The moment I find I have no fun playing, I will stop. What's the use of playing if it isn't enjoyment?
3:14 am
Haz1558

You're right. And this is a fun grid!
3:14 am

wow that winchester house was something! the first picture on the homepage was so impressive AND THEN I SAW THE AERIAL PHOTO!!! HOLY COW
3:14 am

I like to play when I can take my time and chat... it was a run of large grids a few weeks ago that finally broke me...
3:14 am

One of the best we had in a long time :)
3:15 am
sherb

I suppose I'd better start entering some words...
3:15 am
FMitch

It's enormous isn't it kier!
3:15 am
sprite

I think I play relaxed, because I couldn't care less about the ratings. So not finishing a grid wouldn't be a problem (though I love hunting those last words) and not playing for a day or more is no problem either.
3:16 am

160 rooms! amazing. i think one of the bedrooms in there is bigger than our whole house..
3:16 am

It's wonderful isn't it!!!

And sherb - don't try create. Sprite has already tried and it isn't there!
3:16 am

3:20 am
sherb

kier - at the top of the page... click on 'Rankings'

Oh Sherb you are so lucky!!! True, it's a neverending battle I am sure, but is it worth it?

et6==forever, poetically

et5: et + humanlike animal.
3:21 am
Kateq

et5=store house, military issue, sounds like something you listen to on the net
3:23 am
sherb

it's certainly worth it... I especially love the quirky features, like the original glass which is still left in some of the windows... it's slightly rippled, because that's how it was in those days...
3:24 am
kierlex

oh the rankings were interesting. i had no idea!
3:24 am

It sounds wonderful sherb!

If you keep going the way you are, Cat, then you will move up the rankings. But they are not the most important thing at all.
3:26 am

it's odd, but one of the best things about babble is working on the resource pages. they have grown a lot since they lived on my hard drive.
3:28 am
Haz1558

Your resource page is wonderful, Angel. A big help for new players too.

3:35 am
Cat9x

One of my fav P words is in the grid, love that word, don't know why, just the way it rolls off the tongue!:) Pe6/24, to read
3:37 am

And past tense? I looked at the first Pe6/24 and wondered if that really meant 'to read', LOL.

No...I wasn't eating cheetos; I believe that was renfield. I was laughiing so hard I had to log off so as not to spit wine on the laptop. I think it was my comment of "cheetos...is there anything they can't do?" that started it.

i just read the listless thread too...i didnt realise there was such a philosophical problem... i just thought this was a great game to play...with great people to chat to....i must be such a simple mind...lol
10:28 am
pam

I just know I have said that I don't use the lists, and all I mean is that I don't, literally, go back and forth--too much work for me. Plus , i am addictive, so if I start, I won't stop til I am done.
this works better for me--get as many as i can, offer clues on chat if i have the words and play

10:32 am
musicmom

I'm going to have to go read that thread. I am a no list if I have time to meander through the grid. Definite list if I want to just do it quickly. It is kind of like chess or speed chess. Different but one not better than the other.
10:32 am

hey stid I think the species name is springeri, but I can't swear to it... and you're right about us Babblers. I sense that most of us are the sort who get fascinated by diverse subject matter... from Roman aquaducts to seashell formation to language to... you name it!!

12:16 pm
Jen34

I'm sure if I type it enough times, it will suddenly be accepted
12:16 pm

I think a lot of the words are really hard today. I am about to grab the list...

12:26 pm
mamabear

yes - it is fun, but now a bit frustrating
12:26 pm
stidmama

I am not worried shutterbug! I have decided to stop worrying about finishing unless I get really close from now on. I made my goal of being in the top scorers on the 30-day list a couple days in a row this week, and now am playing only when it's fun.
12:26 pm

1:41 pm
shutterbug

ok, lets move onto another word now.
1:41 pm
hetty

The word he**** means to carry or bear, so it can, as a verb, be tensed. Notice what the actors do when they "carry" the text in advance.
1:41 pm
Ping

my 7 month old is helping me today
1:41 pm
musicmom

1:42 pm
LeslieAnn

1:43 pm
LeslieAnn

i was being serious, hetty! i didn't know that
1:43 pm
Ping

her name is carry - alt spelling of course
1:43 pm
Krista

1:44 pm
musicmom

1:44 pm
Atalante

and that its past tense isn't allowed ....
1:44 pm
shutterbug

I know Krista.
1:45 pm
Krista

yep! I drive around with the back of that on my car...I have a Taurus SE...hubby rearranged the letters to spell that word...no one here gets it, though!
1:45 pm
hetty

Leslie, LOL. Yo're a peachie. My problem is I've spent my life--sixty years almost--teaching

1:45 pm

1:46 pm
Golux13

present participle of en6/21
1:46 pm
StephieC

en6/21?
1:47 pm
Krista

1:47 pm
mymuseisme

en6,7 en+ a form of address in a letter
1:47 pm
LeslieAnn

1:47 pm
Golux13

1:47 pm
Atalante

1:47 pm
StephieC

thanks!
1:48 pm
hetty

and the British slang for one's behind is certainly ubiquitous.I remember when I first read scenes from Mdsummer night's Dream to Canadaian students they all cllapsed into giggles when Titania was declared enamourwed of an ASS and fresh from the land of ar**s I didn't know why.As I've said before, we are separated by a ommon language
1:48 pm
Krista

1:50 pm
Krista

picking crabs is how you break them apart and pick the meat out to eat them...there is a lot of gooey yellow stuff that turns my stomach..I can eat it if someone else picks them.
1:50 pm
LeslieAnn

ewww. so you catch them and eat them yourself? being from the midwest this is interesting :)
1:51 pm
shutterbug

UUGGH, yuck I dont ike that yellow stuff either.
1:51 pm
shutterbug

I catch and eat my own crabs.
1:51 pm
Jen34

whenever we eat peel-n-eat shrimp, I always make my husband do the peeling -- something about the legs . . .
1:51 pm
shutterbug

i never new that Krista. I didnt know that was called picking them.
1:52 pm
musicmom

YUM crab and shrimp. mmmmmmmmm
1:52 pm
shutterbug

I LOVE peeling shrimp too!
1:52 pm
shutterbug

I am a seafood head you could say!!!!!
1:52 pm
Atalante

the gooey yellow stuff is lungs ... and reproductive bits
1:52 pm
LeslieAnn

lol
1:52 pm
Jen34

yuck -- gooey yellow reproductive bits -- that's just wrong
1:53 pm

1:53 pm

1:53 pm
musicmom

Oh where is the adventure in that Leslieann?
1:53 pm
shutterbug

Oh, no, Leslie it's much cheaper and more fun to catch your own.
1:54 pm
