I didn't change my profile. Too hard - hate reloading the grid
1:19 am

Actually, I don't mind that the flip is at ten pm where I am. I can easily justify digging in right away, since it's too late to work, then I can take up the grid again in the morning with fresh eyes. And, if I haven't finished before work, I still have a little time after work to try again...
1:20 am
sprite

Yeah, but I am not so sure I would have the discipline to stop working the grid before bed...
1:21 am

Good point Sprite. I'm embarassed to admit how late I sometimes find myself Babbling...

Hello everyone...

Hi Douglas
2:25 am

Ah, thanks Sprite. That sh/5 definitely qualifies as a strange one. I just googled it and it relates to a Jewish school--perhaps the plural?

2:29 am
tazpink

yes jan
2:31 am
jan

The five letter word builds on a four letter sh word that means a school for Jewish learning. I suspect the % letter word is its plural--though the consonant ending isn't a usual plural ending for English words.
2:32 am
jan

Oops, that % should be a five, of course...

3:48 am
Atalante

draw usually, but wandering off into watercolour for this ... a site I play on has a monthly theme challenge to paint/draw/sculpt/whatever, this months theme is witches and wizards. I'm always expected to do something *different*, so this month I'm doing a few pics based on more traditional shamanism ideas. Inuit and Maori first, then Aboriginal Australian if I get the time!

It'll be interesting to see how the word is clued today - or maybe people won't need clues. But keep your big bum one ready!
3:53 am
Atalante

not this time, Angb, though I continually come back to Maori-esque designs, one day I will! This one I've decided to base on the Oho rangi rite done at birth - its a nice easy one to illustrate what's going on!

Ata sounds like you could teach me a thing or two about maoritanga. But the culture is a beautiful and natural one
3:57 am
FMitch

Not sure I echo your sentiments Haz
3:58 am
Atalante

I really don't know much - I learn as I go along, but that learning is helped by having a huge respect for the culture!
3:59 am
Haz1558

I'm still in the first flush of finding sequences etc. Maybe you're further along and feeling more cynical?
3:59 am
Angb

I have always loved the story of Parihaka. Reckon it must have been one of the first sit down demonstrations, in the face of an army.

I have never been. But a lovely story also. It reminds me of a book I read about Druids - ley lines. Where the Tor was a nexus of leylines and rejuvenated life.

4:06 am
Angb

Not that I mean you need rejuvenating.
4:06 am
Atalante

I think thats right anyway, depends on who you believe and if you believe! and ley lines are lines of power that run through the earth
4:08 am
EnigmaNeko

thanks, atalante...it was just that i heard the term leyline in an anime series that i watched awhile back and was curious as to what the word meant since ya'll were on the subject of leylines

AH! And the past tense did it for me on my last! Txs!
6:08 am

Why are people saying "past tense of strange?" Strange is an adjective, not a verb...
6:08 am
Ankhorite

Does he have his clothes on, Matty? Shame on me, but I like Angel best...undressed.

6:10 am

Oh? Hmmm. Thank you, Matty. And on television, did anyone notice the Battlestar Galactica premier was about... Iraq?
6:10 am
FranMag

ooh, then i totally agree, angel is yummy!

10:23 am

Enomis -- in musical terms, a note that "wiggles" is a qu 6/36. "one who" does that is the 8/70. The 6 rhymes with "shave"
10:23 am

10:25 am

qu7/40, one who askes too many questions....
10:25 am

and enomis, if you take the first real vowel in the qu 8 I just clued, and replace it with a different vowel, you get another 8/70...

Colhad, the 6/27 before it is one who does it, the 6/30 is what has been done.
10:39 am

12:17 pm

msilver... you have the option to put yourself in the penalty box if you wish :)
12:17 pm
msilver620

It was purely an accident. And I even figured out the word without the clue I had just asked for just a moment ago
12:18 pm
sherb

but that can't be the one you asked for, msilver... the points are different...
12:19 pm
hurshy

msilver had you meant 6/27 or 6/36?
12:19 pm
msilver620

Words, I wish I could but I'm so new at his and not very good. Usually my 11-year-old helps me but she's not home or that wouldn't have happened. She's better than I am. Give me one that you don't have.

12:21 pm
sherb

es7... men's magazine... and past tense...
12:22 pm
sherb

it feels like Groundhog Day... I must have clued that about six times in the last 8 hours...
12:22 pm
hurshy

msilver...it's just pretend... like the fish... and the jacuzzi (which we haven't used for a looong time). you just say you are going to the penalty box if you put in a word, if it amuses you to say so.
12:22 pm
mkl

Thanks sherb. It's obvious once you know the word
12:23 pm
sherb

this place has got very dull lately... no more jacuzzis, champagne, food fights...
12:23 pm
msilver620

I'll pass the the penalty box this time because it was an honest mistake.
12:23 pm
hurshy

i still use the make-out closet with tor sometimes though sherb
12:24 pm
hurshy

it generally is an honest mistake... except for trolls...
12:24 pm

hurshy

ooh, horses, fun!
12:25 pm
hurshy

12:25 pm
msilver620

I live in an equestrian community but I'm not in that part of town, unfortunately. There is a polo arena over there so alot of horse people.
12:26 pm

12:27 pm
hurshy

msilver - i dunno if i'd recommend putting pictures of your young daughter up on the internet, even though babble is a pretty nice place...
12:28 pm
hurshy

perhaps i'm being overly cautious
12:29 pm

So is anything going on in Babbleonia this past week? -- I haven't been able to play since Tuesday
12:31 pm
msilver620

I'm leaving for a while and I have to pick up Sarah. i wanted to check if the icon changed to her picture. It may be too many pixels.

my first game since last Sunday... I'm only an occasional babbler these days... :(
12:32 pm
GreyWoulf

pretty much the same for me, sherb
12:33 pm
msilver620

yes. it's too big. her face looks kind of squished. She's much cuter and she's a very good babbler and getting an early start.
12:33 pm

1:01 pm
Vicuna

Clearly at least one of us is missing something, hursh! I was under the impression that star had been referred to with a male pronoun and was taking a 15-year-old back to her place. But I freely admit that the lack of syntax in these snippets may be taking its toll on my interpretation.

Pam, the best advice I can give you--and this is probably too soon--is to try to look for the opportunities to grow that this is providing. I'm really cynical, so that's not something I say easily!
