8:56 am
mattygroves

I'm going to do the unthinkable. I'm going to buy a bathing suit. It'll be painful. And ugly. But it has to be done.
8:56 am
abe79

you can do it matty!
8:56 am
mattygroves

Flight was 2 hours late - that wouldn't have been so bad, except we spent a good deal of that in the plane. ON the ground
8:57 am
72 Temple Owl

and i'm sure, since you can't carry on your own beverages, they had plenty to keep you comforatble?
8:58 am
snowyowl

Well I escaped Majorca without being harpooned -which was a small miracle in itself, &if I can do it anyone can. LOL
8:58 am
mattygroves

Actually, we were allowed duty free in the end, and sealed bottles. I don't think they really knew what the rules were, to be honest.
8:58 am

10:14 am
ladynoire1013

whats the fish clue?
10:15 am
amandacath

one of the 8's is most feline
10:16 am
FMitch

There is a ca8/45 - male singer with very high voice.
ca8/45 - work through the feline words to get to the 8.
2 x h8/45 and a 9 build on the beating organ.
10:16 am
ladynoire1013

not to mention more feline than that
10:16 am
Becca Lorum

And one of the 8's is the most vermin like

Great clues FMitch
10:18 am

Another is the sc8/45 more brief/revealing perhaps?
ta 7& 8 combo lay in the sun for a t** and add Scarlet O'Hara's home
10:19 am
Becca Lorum

Lady, one he is more than, the other is the most
10:20 am

10:22 am
Ragalla

10:48 am

10:49 am
stidmama

unmatched -- most people are using a "list"
10:50 am
stidmama

sorry -- such as "Lickety's List" link at bottom of this page.
10:50 am
unmatcheds0cks

is this a subscription thing?
10:50 am
stidmama

The letters they are giving start the word, the first numer is how many letters in the word and the second is how many points the word is worth.
10:50 am
stidmama

Lickety's list is free.
10:51 am
amandacath

wait a minute! are we talking about the same ta6? So you're making love and war at the same time?
10:51 am
unmatcheds0cks

thankyou for the answer and the link.
10:51 am
stidmama

The Tile Stats and Word Stats under the grid are availalbe only for the first two weeks for new people, then you need to subscribe to keep them.

the ts7 and 8 are good wards. think of what happens when a plantation from Gone With The Wind is out in the sun too long for the 7. The 8 is plural.

Which one are you after, Atalante?
12:50 pm
Atalante

the sunburnt plantation!

Oh. That's also the trumpet fanfare, if that helps.

Takuma Sato

Hi all. Has someone clued one of the big ones recently? (I logged on then immediately had a repairman showed up)
12:52 pm
Wolvie

ata - think what sunshine does to your skin(not burn) and the name of the GWTW plantation
12:53 pm
Vicuna

The plantation is also the name of ice skater Lipinsky.
12:53 pm
Vicuna

And the name of the ancient Irish seat of High Kings.

ata, going that way will get you to the ta 6/18...
12:55 pm

okay, vic - are you doing trivia? ;-)

Vicuna

I'm on a roll, here, Wolvie, don't get in my way! :)
12:55 pm
Wolvie

not me!
12:57 pm
Atalante

and if it were possible, which it isn't, one could change the "ra" in the plantation word for "rara" and have a longer trumpet fanfare!
12:57 pm
Vicuna

Is that the ta6/18 that's plaid, you're referring to?
12:58 pm
Wolvie

yah
12:58 pm

He said I'd need treatment, but I'm not that easily led

Vicuna

Ouch, Fiz, I hope it feels better soon!
1:27 pm
Charm

Hi, TheFiz
1:28 pm
TheFiz

my dr. says not carpal tunnel - it's an "overuse injury" brought on by too much knitting, typing, and sewing, and exacerbated by the major food prep i did for a party this past weekend. gotta get a brace and be nice to it - a good excuse not to do various household chores
1:29 pm
TheFiz

my suggestion is that no one else decide to make 25 avocados worth of guacamole at one sitting!
1:29 pm

fiz... including laundry? just kidding. Well, take care - not being able to babble would be a major bummerage!

stidmama

Fiz -- don't reply, but know that I understand only too well about RSI, and definitely don't "push" yourself to do anything. Take your anti-inflammatory meds as directed, not just when it hurts -- and DO use ice on the joint periodically to keep the swelling down... {{{{{HUGS}}}}}

1:43 pm

jaime - an old practice of castrating young singers IS in the grid.

Ok, it's not a violation of any law, but it is an ethics complaint to be filed with the Office of Lawyer’s Professional Responsibility against Mike Hatch
1:44 pm

that's too bad.....i always liked Hatch
1:45 pm
Jaime

what??? hmm, charm, do you know which two letters it begins with?
1:46 pm
Atalante

ok, I am officially stuck now
1:46 pm
Charm

Jaime - ca8/45 = a male singer.
1:46 pm
Douglas

And most people, including myself, have not paid as much attention to it as they should have, because they don't get the details. Hatch is running for governor, but TradeSports gives him a 10% chance of winning
1:46 pm

'rasta' is not a word?

our AG in Rhode Island just got let off the hook for questionable campaign donations - ethics comission saw no "substantive impropriety". Cendidate for Sec. of State not so lucky....

1:48 pm

I resist, I resist. I like futile gestures....
1:48 pm

No it doesn't, xunil, but the grid never takes it anyway. Maybe it's aproper noun, or maybe it just doesn't make sense. With enable, you never know.

No PAC $$, 8 mil or otherwise. But I do have a mean cheesecake recipe that will bring you to your knees.

i need the ai 6/18 please
1:52 pm
Charm

and no $$ changed hands. ergo, no impropriety. ergo no ethics violations.
1:53 pm
Vicuna

ai6/18 is what Shakespeare does to the sheets (or, more likely, Anne Hathaway)
1:53 pm
TheFiz

no, um, "favors" required either. the other way to a politican's voting finger.
1:54 pm
Charm

oh, Fiz, my imagination is working overtime on that, um, 'favors'....
1:54 pm
Vicuna

Your penance, xunil, is that you spent all this time searching for a word that doesn't even count! :)
1:54 pm
TheFiz

sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, charm - unless you're monica lewinsky.

Her popularity went down ..
1:57 pm
TheFiz

1:57 pm
Vicuna

ac6/24 - having to do with vinegar
1:58 pm
Charm

I can't think of any woman of my acquaintance wanting anything from her....
1:58 pm
jillibus

thanks, Vicuna - what a tangle!
1:59 pm
TheFiz

i always thought she should have hooked up with heidi fleiss.
1:59 pm
Charm

yes, those two would have been something (notice I don't say what) together!
2:00 pm
TheFiz

lol charm!
2:00 pm
Atalante

well I feel kinda sorry for her (stirring the barrel a bit!)
2:00 pm

She, and Fawn and Koo, and Gennifer... and all those others could ALL get together.

ex-presidential-squeeze call girls? there's got to be a market for that. sorry stid
2:02 pm
Vicuna

stidmama, just say they were all political consultants. (sardonic laughter)
2:02 pm
Charm

why are there never male counterparts to monica, fawn, et al?
2:03 pm
Vicuna

Because there aren't any female presidents, of course!
2:03 pm

Hi Imp, perhaps tomorrow.......
2:03 pm

2:03 pm

Women are smarter ..
2:04 pm

smart enough not to get caught?
2:04 pm

Maggie Thatcher probably had several, who are all still locked in a bunker somehwere. After all, she wasn't stupid!
2:05 pm

women realise priorities more, I think
2:05 pm

It takes a smart man to realize that about women. Makes you all the more loveable!!!!

2:06 pm

Honestly, I think men are more prone to compartmentalize and think perfectly well with their brains and then turn around and "think" very poorly with other parts...
2:06 pm

Oh, Stid, please don't gag

happy birthday, Jaime!
2:07 pm

Happy Birthday!
2:07 pm
Atalante

I can't imagine Maggie ever being distracted enough from her role as PM to have a toy boy on the side. Whereas men get - um - distracted easily
2:07 pm
Charm

But men, in my admittedly limited experience, also see the world as strictly black and white while women tend to see grays. So it surprises me that a savvy politician can compartmentalize.
2:07 pm
stidmama

Scrabbler! hi there :-)
2:07 pm

2:11 pm

2:12 pm
stidmama

stidmatt will have many of the same teachers as last year, a different one for US History and the other math teacher -- he'll be in algebra! :-)
2:12 pm
Scrabbler

Yesterday was not so difficult as time-consuming.
2:12 pm
stidmama

I think it's easier, abe, but I also have a lot more time.
2:13 pm
Charm

abe, I think it's easier. and also not the feeling of panic because there are fewer words to find.
2:13 pm
stidmama

I didn't even really try yesterday, had too much on my plate to take a big grid seriously.
2:13 pm
abe79

thanks scrabbler, charm and stidmama. i'm trying to budget my time for the rest of the day... (home sick from work)
2:13 pm

2:17 pm
stidmama

Go for it. Don't "drop names" though -- just tell them the actual "things" you'll be doing...
2:18 pm
stidmama

Scrabbler will be VERY interested, stidmatt, as it could impact her line of work someday!
2:18 pm
TheFiz

tell matt - and i'm interested in the names but don't want to go against your mama...
2:18 pm
stidmama

And I WILL look back in the log when I come back, so be polite and don't overdo...
2:18 pm
stidmatt

Okay, I am going to be doing an experiment on Bacteriophage soon at a college. The Bacteriophage is a virus that infects certain bacteria.
2:18 pm

Tell me Matt.

And made famous by being present (at least "phage" was) in the grid once!
2:19 pm
TheFiz

cool matt - now i'm even more interested in the names. i'm a biogeek myself...
2:19 pm
stidmatt

They infect things like Staphococolocus, Salmonella E. Coli O157:H7 and E. Coli F,
2:19 pm
stidmatt

They are extremely useful.
2:19 pm
stidmama

I will let folks know that the scientist who first introduced our family to bacteriophage is Betty Kutter, a longtime family friend who teaches at the Evergreen State College.
2:19 pm

2:20 pm

so what kind of experiments will you be doing, matt?
2:20 pm

Yes, the ones they infect are really bad. They also leave the E. Coli in your gut and cells alone.

2:22 pm

Yes, with antibiotics at least. Since the Viruses are actually infecting them with their DNA, they are extremely more effective.
2:22 pm

See ya' Flosey!
2:23 pm
Atalante

if you get the chance, ask if you can look at the beasties down whatever the highest power microscope they have!
2:23 pm
xunilpenguin

is there a FAQ or wiki with some hints? how do you come up with ca8/45 ? for example?
2:23 pm
stidmatt

The phage infects the bacterium with it's DNA. The bacterium makes more phages, overloads, and explodes!
2:23 pm
stidmatt

I will, I will now put up a diagram of them infecting.
2:24 pm
TheFiz

2:32 pm

2:39 pm
Uneaixoise

in Babble grids, it's insane, Wolvie!
2:39 pm
TheFiz

i always thought i'd be a marine biologist growing up - just sort of fell into HIV prevention through some personal connections - and losses.
2:39 pm
Atalante

its great fun :) I did my degree in marine biology, then did my PhD in the evolution of fish on coral reefs through geologic time
2:39 pm
Wolvie

ata! whilst at UofM (AA) I was going to do that - but did chemical engineering instead - wanted enviro, but - no official degree at that time. Le sigh

5th grade boys teased him when he asked for some candy. They offered him, teased him, took it away. When one asked Stefan to tell him what his name was and Stefan didn't know the boy's name, they began to twist his arm. When he fought back, they held him down, took his shoe off and threw it towards the front where other boys tossed it around and hid it from him.

74 I think she said. She did a little tap and some excellent jitterbugging while she was singing, she sang songs from her old musicals and showed clips and talked about what it was like to act during those times and with those actors. T'was great!
6:31 pm
FranMag

i 'heard' that she typed the same word you did knitter.
6:31 pm
