3:33 am
FMitch

I was commenting earlier on the lack of any e's or s today but I am glad, otherwise it would be a huge grid rather than a mangeable one.
3:35 am
Haz1558

Yes, those mangeable ones bring me out in a rash!
3:35 am
Atalante

sounds unpleasant!
3:35 am
FMitch

How did you get on yesterday, did you finish?
3:36 am
Haz1558

Yes, it turned out to be not as bad as I feared. I did it in Lickety's and then transferred it over. It has the advantage of focusing the mind!

hopefully one day spaniel will be in the grid then we can keep our Spangle and Hobbit pics!
3:46 am

That would be fun! However, I'm changed now, for better or worse.
3:49 am

I'm trying to decide what to change to
3:50 am
Haz1558

There are quite a few to choose from!
3:51 am
Atalante

being picky!
3:51 am
Haz1558

I know - it's getting one that isn't too obvious, but fun at the same time.
3:52 am
Haz1558

I had thought of doing Steve Cr4/6 but it would be lost on the Americans!
3:53 am
Haz1558

And would Imran Kh4/9 be equally unrecognisable?
3:53 am
Atalante

done
3:54 am
Atalante

but I like the idea of Imran Kh** more!
3:55 am
Haz1558

Someting to do with skin......
3:55 am
jonny

thankz for the words Haz
3:56 am
Haz1558

jonny - you're welcome - change round Imran to get an Egyptian thing an4/9.
3:56 am
Atalante

I had to choose the singular of the word as the plural is a very well-known tennis player
3:57 am
Haz1558

Singular tennis player......
3:58 am
Atalante

co5/12 and I'm sorry but I had to change to Imran ...

i'm still seeing your skin icon ata, but i can't wait for it to update now
4:01 am
Atalante

come on Imran!
4:02 am
FranMag

ooh, i just found fi4/11 and the perfect icon would be the king from the wizard of id comic strip.
4:04 am

hey rolin's in the grid!
4:05 am
Atalante

and rolin is one letter away from a 5/12 fishy. proper swimming in the sea fishy
4:05 am

And so is Mr Powell (not Enoch)
4:08 am
FranMag

not that it matters since i started already, but how's the grid so far?
4:08 am
Haz1558

I think it's fun. There aren't many sequences going but there are some good words.
4:09 am
Atalante

slow, but ok and don't tell me ok is in the grid, Haz! *grins*
4:09 am
Haz1558

And the saving grace is that it's not a huge total.
4:09 am
Haz1558

We'll let you off this time!
4:10 am
FranMag

ata, are you typing words in the chat again? :-)
4:10 am
Haz1558

Fran - are you seeing Imran yet?
4:11 am
Atalante

only 2 letter ones!
4:11 am
FranMag

no, let me trying clearing my cache. the problem is AOL doesn't update its server caches that often. brb
4:12 am
Haz1558

You'll find him worth clearing out your cache...
4:13 am
Atalante

definitely
4:15 am
FranMag

okay, clearing the caches didn't work, but i did an image search of my own. a very good-looking man!
4:15 am
Angb

Oh ata - that icon makes me feel all ca 6/21.
4:16 am
FranMag

hi angb!
4:16 am
Haz1558

I'm hoping that nobody finds an icon to illustrate ca6/21 or we'll be taken off the air.....
4:16 am
Angb

Hi fran - nice food icon - no idea what it is - custard isn't it?
4:16 am
FranMag

lol haz!
4:17 am
Atalante

pretty, isn't he!
4:17 am
FranMag

yes, but it goes by it's spanish/filipino name in the grid.
4:18 am
FranMag

i wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crackers.
4:18 am
Angb

Did anyone see the cricket match in NZ where he took his shirt off on the field. My cricketing highlight of all time!
4:19 am
Angb

I'm getting all hot and bothered just thinking about it.
4:19 am
FranMag

ah, so he's a cricket player, must be why i've never seen him before.
4:19 am
Atalante

LOL his biography was definitely the best cricketing book ever!
4:19 am
Angb

As long as it has plenty of pictures I might "read" it Ata
4:20 am
Atalante

LOTS of pics!
4:20 am
Angb

Yummy! Forget the spanish custard!
4:20 am
Angb

Better get back to the grid - getting too excited.
4:20 am
Atalante

am watching NZ cricket right at this moment, Angb
4:21 am
FranMag

angb, the spanish custard is fl4/7, that should bring you back down to earth.
4:22 am
Angb

My dad said it was on - we beat South Africa. Wierd!!!! They are playing Sri Lanka aren't they? Hate NH games - never see them during the night.
4:22 am
Atalante

Imran and custard ... that does *not* bring one back to earth!
4:22 am
Angb

And someone beat Aussie. Yippee.
4:22 am
Atalante

Sri Lanka yes. They've just started batting. NZ I mean. Lovely Stephen Fleming is out there
4:23 am

Now he's not bad ... we have got the odd good looker on our team.
4:24 am
Angb

see ya soon haz
4:24 am
Atalante

Fleming's out. pah. Adam Parore was good looking. But I do have a soft spot for Stephen Fleming for some reason!
4:26 am
Angb

For a bit of ca 6/21 viewing I like rugby. Heavily into watching scrums. Fleming's out ... typical. One good knock and he's done his dash for the season. Fleming is the archetypal cricketer. Very polite, very staid and sometimes plays well.
4:26 am
Atalante

lol yes very true! But he's cute as well, which is *not* archetypal cricketer :P
4:28 am
FranMag

brb
4:28 am

4:35 am
FranMag

see angb, you learn something new every day here!
4:36 am
Angb

I know ... may inspire me. Seeing that life is quieting down a bit I thought I might bake. It's a "see kids you have a mother" thing. Won't last for long though.
4:36 am
FranMag

funny ang!
4:37 am
Angb

Real though - I usually only bake in February, at the start of the work year.
4:37 am

thanks for yr icon clue Fran, got that and added another letter to the end for a f5
4:39 am
FranMag

yw fmitch, i got confused because i just changed my icon to another f4 that can't be extended as far as i can tell.
4:40 am
FMitch

lol just realised that the f5 is Angb's icon.
4:40 am
Angb

A bit obscure isn't it!

5:59 am

And for the first several months I babbled, I strugged mightily every day. Now it's a lot easier for about the first 60-70% of the grid, then comes the struggle. People like Sprite and Haz just sail through!

7:58 am
Ankhorite

Dear One's sister's daughters have double-cons in their nicknames -- Gabby, Livvy -- but she didn't double-con the full name. One of his colleagues' wives substituted "i" for "y" so her second child's name would sort of tie to the first -- Benjamyn, following Ryan.
7:58 am

Ankhorite - I am embarressed for such a horrible inunendo - and I complete apologise - I did not mean to say that - if was un called for - and I hope you accept this apology cause I really was STUPID!

tor, you could be staying at home, in which case this morning after making and cleaning up breakfast, vacuuming, doing 2 loads of laundry, and making and cleaning up after lunch - you can finally think about doing 2 more loads of laundry and starting to cook dinner. On top of taking care of the dog's needs and entertaining the 4yo who's bored to be at home.
