12:53 am
Krys10

12:53 am
sprite

True, andy. I just meant that helen said she quoted from that, not that she thought it was therefore true :)
12:53 am
helenkeller

andy - oh no, i would never assume anything like that, actually i assume the opposite - i was beign sarcastic
12:54 am
andy12489

hey I have a complete book of all EAPs' worsk - leather bound - bought it in his museum in Philly cca 1996 or so
12:54 am

I just googled Poe and according to Wikkipedia Poe's death is of undetermined nature; attributed to alcohol, drugs, cholera and unknown agents (LSD, perhaps)...
12:54 am
andy12489

helen welcome to the club - stopped watching TV 15 yeas ago (ok except for hockey and football) LOL

12:56 am
andy12489

of course sprite - Franz Kafka anyone??? George Orwell??
12:56 am
chic

oh good I don't have to google that...
12:56 am
andy12489

well chic yes that is one of the stories
12:56 am
helenkeller

but then- i don't think hemingway ever told any particularily good stories - in my opinion, he's one of the most over-rated writers ever
12:56 am
sprite

Kafka, Orwell, all wellknown stuff.
12:57 am
MVA

helen, i have to agree
12:57 am
mirandapan

Helen: "Hills Like White elephants"? I think it's his masterpiece

12:57 am
helenkeller

krys - now where would a person find a contest like that? local bar?
12:57 am
Krys10

bookstore, actually
12:57 am
andy12489

helen - moving feast is IMO really great

Actually I am an upbeat kinda girl, lol. If it gets too dark, and there is no light at the end of the tunnel, I am out.
1:00 am
andy12489

helen - worth reading if you have time
1:00 am
andy12489

well sprite yeah - bt still I think it behooves us to be aware of the dark stuff
1:00 am
andy12489

you knlwthe old saying - be close to your friends - and even closer to your enemies...
1:00 am
helenkeller

seriously andy? you think it will sway my opinion of him?
1:01 am
sprite

I agree, andy, I did not mean ignore the black side... but I don't want to revel in it.
1:01 am
andy12489

well don't know helen - can't speak of other people opinions
1:01 am
andy12489

hey Anthony Burgess anyone - speaking of *dark* stuff
1:02 am
sprite

Or very dark with a smile... Roald Dahl :)
1:02 am
andy12489

sprite - agree - yoou don;t need to *revel* in it - as long as you know / are aware of it nicht wahr??
1:02 am
chic

Sylvia Plath now that's some dark stuff!
1:02 am

That's it, andy.

speaking of dark: anybody familiar with Diane Arbus?
1:04 am
Krys10

yeah, i've got those as well.. although my favorite is matilda, i think
1:04 am
sprite

I really really love the Dahl version of the birth of Hitler. That is so brilliantly written.
1:04 am
mirandapan

Yes--her photos
1:04 am
andy12489

sprite - is the "The Gremlins"??
1:04 am
sprite

Special man, that Roald Dahl, to be able to write both for kids and adults.
1:04 am
gailinrb

yes. once saw an exhibition of her stuff at the walker in mpls. was VERY weird.
1:05 am
sprite

No, it is a story of a woman who is giving birth, and her bully of a husband who keeps telling her that the child won't live, that it is too fragile, etc.
1:05 am
mirandapan

She was a WPA photographer, during the depression, right?
1:05 am
andy12489

seen a few photos but that is all -re: Diane Arbus
1:06 am
gailinrb

very strange stuff, andy. but has some sort of attraction.
1:07 am
andy12489

k sprite - so what is the name of the story re: Herr Schickelgruber's birth?? would really like to read it as WW2 history is my hobby
1:07 am
gailinrb

another "artist" who comitted suicide
1:07 am
andy12489

gail -is it noit true that things "weird" or "strange" are "attractive"
1:07 am
2m

rise and fall of the third reich has info about schicklegruber
1:08 am
sprite

I would have to look it up, andy, will have to get back to you on that. The brilliance of the story is that you really feel for the woman, you want the kid to live, you really urge them on. And then the final sentence is that the doctor tells the mother: "He will be fine, Frau Hitler."
1:08 am
andy12489

yeah 2m I read like 6 books - Russian, German, America, British - not the one you mentioned though - what is the ISBN?

andy12489

yup sprite - their page ranking algorith is well known - what is less know though (ping me for links) is Google's arbitrary "link selection" - i.e. there were sites (People's Cube for example) that were most likely deliberately purged by Google. Hence my backup search engines.
1:19 am
sprite

Krys, you are about the only K who is a friend for me!
1:20 am
Krys10

I started a blog a few months ago and it has been totally mysterious to me how to get google to find it - I am getting some hits from there, so I know some people are finding me randomly, but no combination of keywords I can think of will pull me up.
1:20 am

I have a friend who does extensive research on search engines, and another one who wrote a book about it. So I know, and I shamelessly use google still!

Krys10

we had a discussion about K's earlier.. sprite agrees that some K's do come in handy :)
1:46 am

I'd never say it sucks. But it s*cks would be appropriate for a 3 K grid.

2:32 am

Angb: think tiny irritating insect that has aspirations to become a vampire when it grows up, drop last letter, change first one.

2:37 am

Good morning all. I'd be rubbish as a psychic. I had a 'feeling' that it would be a big grid today. Ah well.
3:15 am
FMitch

Morning Haz
It may not be a big grid but it is very very hard, or at least I am finding it so.
3:16 am
Atalante

morning!
3:16 am
Atalante

morning!
3:16 am
Haz1558

The words I've found so far could be an advertisement for the meat industry - f4/8, be4/9. Vegetarians should look away!
3:17 am
Haz1558

Good morning Atalante!
3:19 am
FMitch

Hi Ata
3:20 am
FMitch

I am not seeing words, didn't have the f4/8 thanks Haz
3:21 am
Atalante

its a tricksy one today
3:21 am
Haz1558

They're not exactly flowing from me either!
3:22 am
FMitch

Tricksy!! tricksy!! it's diabolical, well OK that might be a slight exageration : )
3:22 am
Haz1558

(Do I detect a note of slight hysteria with FMitch?)
3:23 am
FMitch

*deep breathing* and exhale. I'm OK honest.
3:24 am
Haz1558

I'm making real progress here - 3 boxes grayed. Okay, so they only had 1 word each, but still.....
3:25 am
FMitch

The c's are good, find 1 and you get all 3
3:26 am
FMitch

I felt very sm4/8 when I found them

Atalante

3:37 am
FMitch

I have that one and didn't realise there was an alt meaning.
3:37 am
Atalante

yup - it crops up in crosswords sometimes, usually cryptic ones
3:38 am
FMitch

that o word was a lovely twisty one to find.
3:39 am
Haz1558

And this from the woman who was declaring the grid to be diabolical. A few deep breaths seems to have worked wonders....
3:39 am
Atalante

yes! I love twisty words
3:42 am
FMitch

Ha Ha!!
3:42 am

3:47 am
FranMag

3:47 am
FranMag

They might sell it at Tescos in the finest range?
3:52 am
FranMag

i keep wanting gorhen to be in a grid again, this has been the closest.
3:52 am
Haz1558

It's one of those grids where you run out of letters for perfectly good words.
3:53 am
Atalante

what sort of objectionable is this man?
3:54 am
FranMag

ata, it also means stupid as well as obnoxious.
3:54 am
FranMag

sounds like one of the three stooges

3:57 am
FMitch

Hi Becca
3:57 am
FranMag

3:58 am
Haz1558

4:00 am
Haz1558

FMItch - feeling even more sm4/8 now that I have found its mouthy anagram
4:01 am
FranMag

haz, look for d and b words that work with the mouthy one.
4:01 am
Haz1558

FranMag - I had been trying to make that word and feeling the lack of one letter. I hadn't looked up.
4:01 am
Atalante

Haz hu4/7 a sm4/8 tune
4:02 am
FMitch

Good one Haz - you can take that word and build some b and d words from it
4:02 am
Haz1558

I am fo4/8 of a good hu*.
4:03 am
Haz1558

This grid is getting better.
4:04 am
FranMag

the fo5 is one of those awful babble words that i determined to remember, it finally showed its face again
4:05 am
Becca Lorum

Ok I may have to retract my former statement about maybe finishing, this is a tough grid!
4:05 am
FranMag

4:06 am

4:28 am
jaiel

4:28 am
Haz1558

No, deep breaths seems to have done the trick.
4:28 am
Becca Lorum

Cup of sweet tea always works for hysteria!
4:28 am
Haz1558

Yes, but then FMitch is into drinking champagne at breackfas time.
4:29 am
FranMag

well that's good
4:29 am
Becca Lorum

Ah, well that's also good for hysteria - but usually causes it rather than cures it!
4:29 am
Haz1558

Once a year on her birthday, but still......
4:29 am

6:56 am
Eva

If I die, survive me with such a pure force
you make the pallor and the coldness rage;
flash your indelible eyes from south to south,
from sun to sun, till your mouth sings like a guitar.
6:56 am
Eva

I don't want your laugh or your footsteps to waver;
I don't want my legacy of happiness to die;
don't call to my breast: I'm not there.
Live in my absence as in a house.
6:57 am
Eva

Absence is such a large house
that you'll walk through the walls,
hang pictures in sheer air.
6:57 am
Eva

Absence is such a transparent house
that even being dead I will see you there,
and if you suffer, Love, I'll die a second time.

6:57 am

i don't mind begging
8:54 am

...and it's not nice to call them gypsies. For me 'gypsies' are the people in stories who ride around in painted wagons and tell fortunes, the ethnicity is Sinti & Roma
8:54 am

no, arggg bunny, I think we were talking about having a brit day later.

amandacath

True, I don't. I live in Hamburg. I'm not really sure about the english political correctness with respect to 'gypsies', in German it's a bad word unless you're talking about the story-book people
8:57 am
raelite

well that is good to know...even though I've never been to germany...but might go someday :)
8:58 am
Atalante

we have gypsies / romanies => true ethnic gypsies, and then travellers for "gypsies". if that makes sense
8:58 am
bunnyvicious

I don't think there is a correctness. Don't quote me though. They are more of a story book character to me, think Hunchback of Notre Dame.

hi Ata! I thought it was something like that. I'm not sure if it's an issue in the States because there's not a community like there is in most European countries

9:10 am
klaurel

the problem is that she is very big, mean, and has a reputation for not being afraid of the teachers and the powers that be at the school
9:10 am
klaurel

and she was this bad on the bus last year and she was never even disciplined, whch doesn't help
9:10 am
marso

can they not kick her out of the school?
9:11 am
Anniebrook

laurel, then this child needs help
9:11 am
marso

i know they do here
9:11 am
klaurel

OUCH! RAE! I hopeyour parents pressed charges
9:11 am
bunnyvicious

Can they make her sit directly behind the driver on the bus. I think hr parents need some rearing lessons as well.
9:11 am
klaurel

Marso, I wish, rumor has it (and this is NOT a racist remark) that when her mother was pulled into school she said "Sorry, there is nothing I can do. She has a problem with white people"
9:12 am
klaurel

they HAVE her sitting in front, which makes it hard for my son since he was sitting there away from the other 5th grade bullies
9:12 am
raelite

no, they did not press charges. I believe that karma will take it's own reward.
9:12 am
bunnyvicious

What a mother!
9:12 am
marso

OMG that is disgusting
9:12 am
amandacath

she'll get it all back one of these days - unfortunately that doesn't help the kids who she's beating up now...
9:12 am
Sam

klaurel, file criminal charges. scru the school.
9:12 am
marso

well said sam
9:12 am
raelite

yes, you should get a restraining order
9:12 am
klaurel

last week the call was because she caled him a witch (but with the B) and apprently yesterday, she was running around the bus while it was moving and playing her trumpet and screaming
9:12 am
Anniebrook

laurel, then the parents need help too...are there any therapists in the school, prob. not....i would def. talk to a lawyer as you did
9:13 am
Sam

that's civil. file assault charge.
9:13 am
klaurel

and my son told her to be quiet, which prompted hte hit in the face
9:13 am
raelite

those poor children
9:13 am
klaurel

and when he tried to move, the other kids set him up and told him to sit down in an empty seat wchih only had a bag there, of course that was teh bullies seat and that got him a punch in hte gut
9:13 am
Anniebrook

laurel, how old is this girl?
9:13 am
raelite

imagine what that girl is going through that she has to act out that way
9:13 am
klaurel

5th grade
9:14 am
bunnyvicious

It's horrible that you have to go to that level. The first time I find out that my child is being a bully, the sh** will hit the fan. I will march them straight to the school and that persons house to apologize in front of everyone. A little humility goes a long way.
9:14 am
marso

A young asian lad assaulted my 10 year old about 2 yrs ago an when i went into the shop I got the hieght of abuse an threatened with a large stick,,,I went police and i got done for an aggrevated racila assault so it doesnt always pay to go the police!!!
9:14 am
klaurel

and she is black, which prompted the "my daughter has a problem with white people" comment from the mother <sigh>
9:15 am
raelite

I want to tell you to kill her with kindness...but your son is probably still very frightened to ride the bus
9:15 am
Tiny

and they say racism is not allowed in schools yeah right tell that to the children who have been hurt
9:15 am
klaurel

my son is Half Chinese and half German (well, like 3rd generation), and I have tried to keep race completely out of it
9:15 am
Anniebrook

laurel, have you spoken to the principal yet, if so, is this girl being suspended and the parents talked to...god, how awful
9:16 am
klaurel

unlike my daughhter, he LOOKS Chinese, my daughter is blond
9:16 am
marso

u try but someone will always have that evil streak in them to use it
9:16 am
Anniebrook

laurel, can you get your son onto another bus?
9:16 am
klaurel

well, I spoke with the principal, they promised to talk to me today. They will tell me what they plan to do, but will not tell me specific discipline (which I will get through the grapevine), but my husband told me to tell the principal that he wants to come in and look at the tapes
9:17 am
klaurel

unfortunately, no, the wonderful thing about my district is that it is small and they keep all the grades together versus you assigned to the school closed to your house, but that involves busing all the kids
9:17 am
klaurel

so, I am dropping him off and picking him up everyday now
9:17 am
Anniebrook

laurel, when both parents are involved they move faster to clear the problem
9:18 am
marso

yeah it may look better if 2 of u go in
9:18 am
raelite

is this girl in your son's class?
9:18 am
bunnyvicious

it seems like they would suspend the child from the bus and make her parents take her to school.
9:18 am
klaurel

and the person I will hire as my lawye rin this case, her son is on the same bus and confirmed a lot of what happened
9:18 am
magzel

i need help with all the co words please and hello, how is everyone today
9:18 am
klaurel

I have a 3 year old and nmo sitter, so, he is in for the bus and I am in for the hollering
9:18 am

laurel, you might have to drop and pick up for a while until someone gets through to this small monster ( she learned that at home)
9:19 am

co 5/20 - what you do when you have a cold, sore throat, add on for the co 7 & 6
9:19 am

that is what I keep saying that is is unfair I am the one who h as to take him back and forth and not her
9:19 am

9:19 am

9:20 am

Marso, slapping a mother would set an example for the kids, which is where it all began in the first place.
9:20 am

9:20 am

they won't do anything

9:21 am

if they don't, then i will call the police. I have pictures and I have emails to the shcool and a log of everything that happened on the bus
9:21 am
klaurel

and then I will file civil assautl and battery charges against her
9:21 am
bunnyvicious

I'm very lucky, my children go to a small school, my Mom teaches there. Not to mention, the school kids are 8,9, and 10, so they are there to take up for eachother as well.
9:21 am
raelite

a lawyer sound like the best way to go
9:21 am
marso

i know,,,,,it just winds me up that some parents can teach their own flesh and blood to be racist bullies
9:22 am
Sam

the irony is that if your kid did ONE thing wrong, the school would not hesitate to file criminal charges, suspend, etc.
9:22 am
Anniebrook

laurel, you are right, start with the school and go on from there....you have everything documented which is good, good luck...you cant but i would slap this girl into the next county
9:22 am
raelite

I'm not sure she can be charged at such a young age though
9:22 am
klaurel

I want to keep Stefan from having to go to court and stuff. He gets confused easily when trying to explain stuff. Typical brain-child. Can figure out long division by looking but cant put a coherent sentence together sometimes
9:22 am
klaurel

I WANT to slap this girl into the next century. Actually, I want her to slap Stefan while my dog is watching! :D
9:23 am
bunnyvicious

I would think they would charge the parents, that's how it works when they do truancy charges.
9:23 am
Sam

I have seen 7-year-olds charged with 'terroristic threats' for bringing a tie clip shaped like a gun to school.
9:23 am
marso

lol now now laurel
9:23 am
raelite

as, as we can see, violence solves nothing
9:25 am
klaurel

Ultimately, the police wouldn't even do anything and, if they do, then it will be barely a slap on the wrist, though a visit from the police SHOULD scare most kids and parents, .but I worry from what the mom said, that then it will turn into a race media circus
9:25 am
raelite

personally, I was bullied every single day I went to school...you learn to ignore it...then go home and cry!!
9:25 am
bunnyvicious

Laurel, I certainly hope everything works out for you. i'd hate to be in your shoes. I had better get though, Sky & Twy are aching to get outside and play, it's so beautiful out today. Ya'll take care.
