3:21 am

hehehe, brilliant!
3:21 am
ramix

hmm that's a toughie sprite
3:21 am
Ornith

3:22 am

Great Ata :) We are close, it is so exciting :)
3:24 am
philod14

i see lickety isnt updated.. thought it was a bit of a coincidence that there was 208 words today too..
3:24 am
Atalante

its such a *lovely* design now!
3:24 am
Ornith

afraid not, philod. and we've needed it, too!
3:25 am
sprite

Ornith: chymosin. Ends in protruding thing in face with other vowel.
3:25 am
sprite

I am looking at it all the time, Ata, I think I am in love, lol.
3:26 am

3:26 am

lol philod!
3:27 am
Ornith

had to look up the clue word, but thanks, sprite
3:27 am
Ornith

se 7/32?
3:27 am
Atalante

you believe in coincidences, don't you? while I was drawing the last draft, one of my good friends was drawing this - http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/39
667774/ - completely separately!
3:29 am
sprite

That is almost scary, Ata, LOL! Synchronicity, again :)
3:29 am
Atalante

yes!
3:30 am
sprite

Se6: to discriminate or distinguish in thought
Se7: 3rd person singular.
3:30 am
sprite

We've got a lot of that during the creation of the tattoo, Ata. Nice :)
3:31 am
Ornith

I didn't know that was a word
3:31 am
ramix

oh, i still dont get it
3:32 am
Ornith

ata, do you have a link to the thing you're drawing for sprite? I want to see it now
3:32 am
sprite

ramix: Se7 usually starts Dis.
3:33 am
sprite

Once it is finished, you can have a peek, Ornith :)
3:33 am
sprite

If that's okay with you, that is, Ata.
3:33 am
Atalante

exactly, Ornith :)
3:33 am
Atalante

patience, young padawan etc etc etc ;)
3:34 am
philod14

i must still be asleep.. cause these clues are going straight over my head..
3:34 am
sprite

LOL!
3:34 am
ramix

aargh....total blank....all i can think of is segregate
3:34 am
Ornith

it isn't that cross tattoo in the gallery, is it? that's gorgeous.
3:35 am
sprite

ramix: it rhymes with what we do with the money our jobs give us, before we spend it ;)

Ornith: mine is even more gorgeous!
3:35 am
Atalante

nope - that was a design I did for my best friend. She actually had it coloured in yesterday afternoon! I'm waiting for her to come onto IM so I can see photos!
3:35 am
sprite

Wow, that's also exciting, Ata! Last phase of the tattoo?
3:35 am
Atalante

yup! will show photos tomorrow!
3:36 am
Ornith

oh, how cool. I have a design in mind for a tattoo myself that I CANNOT draw... I can draw, but only very specific things. then again, I'm sure I can't afford to have it done just now anyway
3:36 am
sprite

Love to see the result!
3:36 am
philod14

can someone tell me how many words today please?
3:36 am
ramix

mama!! gaaah!!! can you do a 'for dummies' clue please sprite
3:37 am
Ornith

philod, 278

3:37 am
sprite

I once drew a cat for my kids. My son looked at it and said, very gently: "That is a nice elephant, mom. Really."
3:37 am
helenkeller

good nite everyone - leaving meself a whopping 111 for manana
3:37 am
Atalante

LOL I think I'm starting to specialise in that. "Have a tattoo design you can't draw? I'll do it for you!"
3:37 am
Ornith

ata, I like your design for phedre's marque better than the book one!
3:37 am
philod14

thats a lot of words!!
3:37 am
helenkeller

bye-bye :)
3:37 am
philod14

only about 250 left :)
3:37 am
Atalante

*mutters* so do I Ornith. So do most people, really ...
3:38 am
Ornith

lol sprite
3:38 am
sprite

See Ata? I agree with Ornith about Phedre's marque too. You could do more tattoos ;)
3:38 am
Ornith

the one on the book cover is just Not Right
3:38 am
Ornith

If you have time, I'd love to discuss your doing mine, Ata!
3:38 am
Atalante

the book cover one was never properly designed. the artist guy just created it without any consultation with Jacqueline Carey etc
3:39 am
Atalante

and so ... yeah, its not right
3:39 am
Ornith

the sad thing is that people have gone and gotten the book one for real
3:40 am
sprite

ramix: start with 'to tear apart', first 3 letters.
Then repeat that 3rd letter.
Then add first word of famous soup ".. the world turns"
Then add vowel.
3:40 am
Atalante

we can certainly discuss! my email / IM addys are in my profile! and yes, I think that's just *weird* really. A not very right Phedre tattoo ...
3:40 am
sprite

The one on the book is plain plain. Just not anywhere near the one Carey must have pictured.
3:40 am
ExWren

Another big grid, so I guess I will not be playing again today
3:41 am
Atalante

I'm really pestering Jacqueline Carey. Not nastily, just showing her work Kushiel work, cos I know she loves it. Hoepfully one day, she might sack her illustrator and hire me :P
3:41 am
sprite

Errrr... famous SOAP. Not soup. Sorry.
3:41 am
sprite

She will, Ata. She'd be nuts not to. I am positive she feels you resonate to what she has written.
3:42 am
Ornith

oh, you have msn Ims. darn. don't have that one. will email you then... unless you have AIM as well?
3:42 am
Ornith

and yes, please please pester her! that's been driving me nuts, and I really like her books.
3:42 am
Atalante

have AIM! its a bit dodgy - ie works half the time LOL my name there is elegaer
3:42 am
Ornith

Am having trouble waiting for the latest one to come out in paperback, going to be most of a year
3:43 am
Ornith

but hardcovers are so expensive, and space is at a premium for me also.
3:43 am
Atalante

my friend who has the cross tattoo has met her and talked to her a lot about Phedre designs ... she has a poster we made up of friend's tattoo Phedre style and I know her publisher likes it ... so am (probably futilely crossing fingers)
3:44 am
Ornith

ok, one more clue, and I'll break 200 and stop with this for the night: to7/28
3:44 am
Atalante

I would have waited for the paperback too, but friend got me a signed copy at the booksigning :)
3:44 am
sprite

*lights a candle, sends up a couple of prayers and crosses fingers too*
3:44 am
Ornith

oh cool!
3:44 am
sprite

Ornith, think bull fighters
3:44 am
ramix

no wonder...sprite, you're giving me a clue for the re...i was asking for the se
3:44 am
sprite

wow Ata!
3:45 am
Atalante

woot! is nice to find another person who loves the books on babble!
3:46 am
Ornith

alright! less than 100 left now and no more 7+'s
3:46 am
Ornith

have you read her non-Kushiel pair of books Ata?
3:46 am
Atalante

noooo, I'd really like to though
3:47 am
sprite

Okay, ramix, Se7.
First 3 letters 'dry' as in wine.
Then "to deserve, to get (money)", drop one vowel.
For the 7 make into 3rd person singular.

Or try: to whom it may con.... and put another start on it.
3:47 am
Ornith

they're really cool (and in paperback) - it's like Tolkein told from the point of view of Sauron's servants. And with more moral ambiguity
3:48 am
sprite

I want to read those too!
3:48 am
Atalante

really? WOW! I want to read them more now!
3:48 am
sprite

But not this weekend, Ata, you've got work to do (evil grin)
3:49 am
Ornith

if you lived near me I'd lend them, but... heh

4:00 am
SueMagee

I keep looking for generous on the same basis Atta!
4:00 am

Because you are a good girl, to whom all things Ob7 are obscure?
4:01 am

4:01 am

Missing R was R4, my husband's name in plural. Yeah, no wonder, there is only one like him!
4:02 am

Re7/36 minus first letter, ramix.

4:08 am

5:22 am
mattygroves

5:24 am
Frances

I have co7/36 cr7/32 and gr7/40
5:26 am
mattygroves

Can you guys clue the eight (and other sevens) - the only 7s I have are what kids get when they touch each other (especially if the touchie is unpopular) (that's co7), I have a cr7 meaning to be more angry, and an so7 meaning to be knurder (work it out)
5:26 am
Frances

Just found another ne7/40
5:26 am
Atalante

ne8/50 - the state of dead flesh

5:27 am
mattygroves

Now..
5:31 am
Frances

matty so7 Silly question - is something to do with knots on tree trunks?
5:31 am
mattygroves

Nope. It's when you're even more knurd (spell it backwards)
5:32 am
Frances

Thank you DOH!
5:32 am
mattygroves

Now - tell me about knots on tree trunks?
5:33 am
jg26

thanks matty, success at last
5:33 am
Frances

I see that the opposite is here!
5:33 am
Frances

A knot on a tree trunk is also known as a knur
5:34 am
mattygroves

Oooh - I see. I'm alluding to Discworld.
5:35 am
mattygroves

Is that you finished, jg?

mattygroves

Gee, apparently this woman, "Being the wife of late Chief of Defence Minister Mr Gobah William of Guinea
Bissau .My late husband was assassinated by unknwon military men suspected
planed by the present government." wants to share $7 million with me, if only I'll help her move the money. D'ya think it's on the level :D
5:45 am
Atalante

I'd go for it, matty ....

musical instrument atlante
5:45 am
mattygroves

Ata, the offer below could be considered ob7/40 on one level - so could a dirty movie.
5:46 am
mattygroves

I wonder what one has to do to be 'unknwon'
5:46 am
Atalante

OH! ty!
5:46 am
Eva

Matty, I think you'd be selfish and foolish to pass up this offer of a lifetime. I only wish they'd contacted me.
5:47 am
mattygroves

I can forward you the offer if you like?

mattygroves

LOL!

PappouTed

5:48 am
mattygroves

Clearly, Eva. What 8 did you find, Pap?
5:48 am
PappouTed

the plural of the co7
5:49 am
PappouTed

5:53 am
mattygroves

Yah - had that one (one of my first).
5:53 am
mattygroves

I just didn't connect louse with kid touching disease
5:54 am
jg26

5:54 am
Uneaixoise

I was here at the flip and have just come back in--do we know if lickety's clues are coming soon/later?

Did you know that there is a cricket ground in the middle of that racecourse. I was there scoring a couple of weeks ago.
7:11 am
Cat9x

hi saph :)
7:11 am
Flask1

How come I still have yesterdays list????
7:12 am
FMitch

I did indeed Frances, was it moved or altered with the big rebuild?
7:12 am
Frances

No. They had to move the golf course across the road but the cricket ground stayed where it was and it really is lovely.
7:14 am
Jacula

No 'debag'? Good grief!
7:14 am
Flask1

Can anyone tell me why I still have yesterdays list please??
7:14 am
mattygroves

Try refreshing - shift f5 to clear the cache?
7:14 am
Frances

Sorry Flask. I haven't looked at any lists yet.
7:14 am
FMitch

Yes the golf course has aparently settled very well and is already a good course.
7:15 am
Frances

The cricket ground is so quiet and peaceful. You can just see the rails of the course on the boudary.
7:16 am
Frances

I mean boundary

7:18 am

Flask - sprite posted a list on BabAnon it that would help? Go to Babblers Anon then general and then it's about the 3rd post down on the list I think.
7:18 am
Cat9x

Good morning Judy
7:18 am
Flask1

Oh well.....you deserve it....after all the help you've given me this morning!
7:19 am
Flask1

ok Mitch....thanks!
7:19 am
licketySplitAUS

Flask - I think you're suffering from a Proxy Caching problem. If Shift F5 - or Cntrl F5 or menu - Refresh, or restart browser doesn't refresh - then you need to clear your internet history. Everyone else see's it fine.
7:19 am
Flask1

still doesn't explain why I can't get Lickety's tho'....
7:20 am

Ok thanks...I shall try again!

8:47 am

8:48 am
Dorens

hi bloodaxe
8:49 am
Bloodaxe

how's the grid today?
8:49 am
sherb

backwards/forewards is the most important thing... although from yesterday there are extra points for longer words, so we'll have to see if that changes things...
8:49 am
Haz1558

Is the QP prize of monetary value or are you playing for pride mostly?
8:50 am
sherb

pride, completely... I think the actual prize is a book token... might not even be usable in the UK...
8:50 am
Charm

some big words but nothing really weird. yet
8:51 am
Haz1558

Then it's a bit like Crufts - the prizes there are of negligible value in monetary terms, but are highly sought after!
8:52 am

Haz, really nice pic of the dog....
8:53 am
Haz1558

Thanks Charm. It was taken to let Atalante and others see how nice she looked after being groomed the other day. She smelt great as well!
