Ankhorite

Hup, got it... but it should be a blue tie! :) To prevent confusion with AIDS, to be similar to the plain blue ribbons for prostate cancer. Pink is for breast; I found one image that combines the blue & pink ribbon to be a "family awareness" pin: "test together, live together."
12:08 am

Okay, you see how we talk about st5,10? That means we need a word that starts se, has five letters, for ten points. BUT you need to know -- 4 letters means points equal the numbers on the tiles. FIVE letters means DOUBLE those numbers.

Haz! Not so bad!

It does sound like that Dianne, now that you've said it.

Anyone have clue for the 1st de7/32?

Yup that'sthe 1st one lovely thanks.

That's good! I've got to 110 and am about to trawl the che chat log for clues.

Just looking up the chat log - hurshy had 92 in 9 minutes. She's slowing right up.
3:39 am
FMitch

Sheesh and I was pleased with my 80 in 30 mins
3:40 am
Haz1558

Going that fast doesn't give you the chance to welcome each word properly. And it's bound to play havoc with the keyboard, eventually.
3:42 am
Dianne

de7/32 - de + what you get on you pants when you slide on grass.

*public speaking, heaven help my typing.
3:50 am
Haz1558

public peaking - show off mountaineers?
3:51 am
FMitch

I know, I know!
3:52 am
Haz1558

Better than private peeking. You can get arrested for that.

4:28 am
Karys

hello infernal
4:29 am
FMitch

Hi BDG
The grid is nice like that today Karys, words just falling out of it ... and then they suddenly dry up lol
4:30 am
Book Doctor Gwen

yeah, and look at the right tier. Nothing! LOL
4:30 am
herinfernallady

hey gwen sorry registring new backpack
4:31 am
Karys

right;...on this particular drying up session, I WILL go and do something else ( reluctantly )....back in a bit
4:31 am
Book Doctor Gwen

(wondering how one registers a backpack, or why)
4:32 am
herinfernallady

Oh soryry its a new targus laptop backpack by paying $100 aus (my otherhalf bought it for me) you get a lifetime warentee
4:33 am
Haz1558

TIme to go and do other things. It's a nice grid, very few really peculiar words, by babble standards anyway.
4:33 am
herinfernallady

pardon my spelling i cant really see all that good out of my right side tonight
4:33 am
Book Doctor Gwen

hmmm, just for the backpack, or does that include the laptop?
4:33 am
herinfernallady

nope just for the backpack the laptop was a grand
4:34 am
Book Doctor Gwen

yee-ouch!
4:34 am
Book Doctor Gwen

(then again AUD are smaller than USD, aren't they?)
4:34 am

good morning everyone. So far this has been a well behaved grid
4:36 am

Yep about that lynxx,
4:36 am

just storted
4:36 am

there is way too many doubles that im seeing double, bye volley
4:37 am
lynxxx

Hi Eva
4:38 am
ExWren

Morning/afternoon everyone. Looks like I just missed Haz. I did get the Fireworks yesterday, but didn't bother chatting, there was a silly little troll making a nuisance of herself. Hopefully Rolin has sorted her out
4:38 am
herinfernallady

Gwen my partner doesn't want the very expensive new toy to get damaged that is why he got me a back pack so i can travel.
4:39 am
herinfernallady

Oh dear wren, thats not like rolin, must of had a bad hair day, how big was yesterdays grid?
4:40 am
lynxxx

Hello ExWren! belated congrats then for yesterday. You would be liking todays?
4:42 am
herinfernallady

i cant wait to go and get this in pro form got the card now to do it
4:42 am
ExWren

There were roughly half of today's total in yesterday's grid. I haven't looked at todays grid yet.
4:43 am
herinfernallady

there was 78 words i just checked archive, i was too busy at work over the weekend to log in
4:44 am
lynxxx

ExWren - it seems easier today -although only half way through. anyway must get back to it!
4:44 am
Book Doctor Gwen

infernal, ahh, i guess that makes more sense than what i was thinking 8-)
4:44 am
Book Doctor Gwen

(only 33 words left and haven't starting "cheating" yet!!)
4:45 am
herinfernallady

when i get a back pack i try to get one with a lifetime guarentee, its handy if its used every day, Way to go gwen i amk about to cave in
4:46 am
Eva

18 left....think I
4:46 am
Eva

think I'll rest for a while and then try the list
4:47 am
herinfernallady

oh i already got 30
4:47 am
EnemyisME

What is considered cheating? Where are the rules that establish what a babbler does to be considered a cheat?
4:48 am
Eva

I can't think of anything that would be considered cheating. Everyone has their own patters of what and when they use help.
4:48 am
herinfernallady

nothing is cheating its asking for help, the only one you are cheating is your self, go as far as you can then look at licketys list
4:49 am
Eva

it's about keeping it interesting but not excrutiating
4:49 am
FMitch

Someone came up with a great line on that Enemy - the only cheating is a solver program, the rest is research.
4:49 am
Book Doctor Gwen

by "cheating" i mean looking at the licketysplit page and using the 2-letter clues. Oh, and also asking you guys for clues!
4:49 am
EnemyisME

if nothing is cheating how can you cheat yourself?
4:49 am
Eva

some people use a2z, or different word finding programs. Others use nothing.
4:49 am
lynxxx

"cheating' is in the mind of the player only - no rules except those each player imposes upon him/herself. Hi Enemy!
4:49 am
Book Doctor Gwen

(that's why I used the quote marks, ya know)
4:50 am
Book Doctor Gwen

and when I'm really stuck i use that a2z page sometimes. helps find the "weird" words i've never heard of
4:50 am
Ankhorite

When I use morewords.com I feel like I'm cheating, but I only do it when I'm totally desperate... not gonna say hi, just in here to shut down the computer. :) And most days I don't finish -- I'm not one of the big competitors. But once in a while, a missing word will REALLY annoy me, and then it's morewords time! BBLater, all.
4:50 am
herinfernallady

Sorry i think to me cheating is when you look at the grid 'go i cant be arsed trying i'll look at the list' instead of giving it a go, I also say what lynxx said as its better said
4:51 am
herinfernallady

sorry i really cant see the screen properly so i apoligise for the poor spelling
4:51 am
EnemyisME

If I am going to be labled a cheater for specific conduct, I want to know what that conduct is. To be thought of as a cheater is offensive to me.
4:51 am
Book Doctor Gwen

this grid today so far only has a few "weird" words and they're ones i already know
4:52 am
Ankhorite

*blinks* I guess I missed something... I don't think anyone can label someone here a cheater. I label myself that way when I hit morewords; and I try to resist Lickety's list now that I have some experience; but I can't imagine anything anyone ELSE would do that I would call cheating.
4:52 am
Eva

I can't imagine that anyone would consider you a cheater. The only times I have seen people get a bit miffed is when someone comes on and asks for basically every word to be given to them, without making any effort themselves.
4:53 am
herinfernallady

NO enemy not saying you are cheating i get grilled for saying 'im off to cheat when i use lickteys list and amo instead of saying 'my brain is dead im off for help
4:53 am
Ankhorite

Oh,yeah, Eva, but that's just ruuuude. I've only seen it from trolls I suspected were under age 15. Okay, turning this off now, no matter how attractive the chat may be! BBL! :)
4:53 am
Eva

bye ankhor
4:53 am
JFB

Surely the best way is to do what you feel comfortable with. For myself being limited for time I try to get over halfway - thats a victory for me!!
4:53 am
Book Doctor Gwen

hey hey hey, I'm the one who use the word "cheating" and it was in quotes and it was about me! so don't be miffed
4:54 am
herinfernallady

I will put my hand up on that one eva, i was a multi cluer at first then i got the hamg of the game now i don't ask unless im getting a waffle head from the keyboard
4:55 am
herinfernallady

'pokes out my right eye so i can focus the left better'
4:55 am
Eva

no infernal-you were enver like that. Asking for clues a lot int he beginning is just fine.....and sometimes we all geet tired and need a lot of help. Ankho was right-it's been trolls.
4:56 am
Eva

Anyway, we all seem to be in agreement that there's no such thing as cheating.
4:56 am
herinfernallady

Um i think i could be classed as a troll at first to, but now im a reformed troll and try to respect everyone. I hit my self with the attitude adjuster stick
4:57 am
herinfernallady

oh dear im really lossiing it i failed to se a we 4/9 since im cateering one on saturday
4:57 am
Eva

Far be it from me to challenge your trolledness herinfernal(-:
4:58 am
herinfernallady

rasberry at eva. Im so dead i just told my partner that i would 'fix the bag up when im a lot more concentrated' i think i poored one to many jugs of cordial over the weekend
4:59 am
Eva

that raspberry woke Merp up herinferna
5:00 am
herinfernallady

Who is merp?
5:00 am
Eva

my cat-the handsome guy in the picture
5:01 am
JFB

The best thing about the chat is the way you can differ but never fall out and do it over 2 or 3 continents - where else could you do that?
5:01 am
Eva

it is very neat JFB
5:02 am
herinfernallady

CUTE
5:03 am
Eva

my neck and shoulders are sending me clear messages that I've been babbling too long, so time for a break. See you all later.

Great fun! I'm well past my target [103] so I ought to do something else. bbl

5:07 am
Book Doctor Gwen

ExWren - its Mo'vember in Melbourne (at least). Guys grow moustaches and raise awareness - and money - to support Protrate Cancer Awareness - do you have this over there?
5:42 am

hi lynxxx, didn't mean to be slow to respond, was getting my ribbon
5:44 am
phandmd

opps, I am suffering from a sore throat.
5:44 am
phandmd

Wait, what happened, first I said good morning all and thought I had hit return...
5:44 am
ExWren

Not that I am aware of lynxxx. It seems as if we are only just beginning to talk about it at all. If you have read my profile today, you will see that my husband has had the big 'C', but we also know at least a dozen men who are in varying stages of it
5:45 am
phandmd

wonder if I might get a small clue for the in 8?
5:47 am
sunny09

can't help yet phandmd.:(
5:47 am
metaleather

Wren, I don't mean to pry, but how did you first become aware of your husband's illness... I mean, what prompted you both to see a doctor?
5:47 am
LoriP

G'd Morning all! I hope this grind is gentler with me than yesterdays's was
5:48 am
phandmd

grind? is that a freudian slip?
5:48 am
LoriP

This is an excellent subject choice. My Father is a 15 year + survivor.
5:48 am
metaleather

hi Lori
5:48 am
lynxxx

ExWren - perhaps you can pinch this idea then. Prostrate awareness has become quite 'commonplace' over here as a result of a lot of media attention/publicity. All very good as the earlier it is detected the better. I haven't read your profile yet but I will - best wishes for your husbands total recovery.

5:51 am

ty Wren, I'm sort of the health watchdog for my fella and was wondering what to watch for
5:51 am

A regular exam is the way to go, signs or not.

SWAP (baseballcards) drop last letter add two in spanish

I shall never forget the look on Bill's face when his Consultant just came right out with it and said "you have cancer".
5:53 am
sunny09

ExWren, how did he feel going to a doctor?? My MOTH is very shy about the whole consultation side of checkups. He says he has enough to cope with getting regular colonoscopies for his Crohns disease.
5:53 am
lynxxx

In Aust tey are encouraging ALL men over 40/50 to have a simple annual bloodtest with rectal examination as well which can detect early stages of the disease even before other symptoms - my husband actually had these done this week.
5:54 am
ExWren

The examination and biopsy is not a pleasant experience, but better than dying an awful death.
5:54 am
sunny09

thanks Diem.. good clue
5:54 am
metaleather

it's an uphill fight to get my fella to go to the doc. when he has pneumonia... but after eight years together, he's learning not to resist when I "encourage" him to see the doc.
5:55 am
phandmd

was that a clue for the in 8?
5:55 am
metaleather

I'll make it a point to see that he has an exam next trip to the doctor.
5:55 am
ExWren

When he was diagnosed his PSA blood count was 6.9%, they cannot detect it now.
5:55 am
metaleather

very good clue indeed Diem
5:56 am
phandmd

Gosh, now I feel stupid, I don't get it :-(
5:56 am

why do most men have such a hard time seeing a doctor??

6:13 am
MaverickWill

And there's nothing wrong with a guy being like that. Think about it - he has no control, he's praying he doesn't say the wrong name at the altar, and he's hoping you won't kill him, the best man and half the guests if he passes gas during his speech.
6:14 am
sunny09

no Maverick... Herin is the caterer not the bride.

Little trick from the lovely Brazilians - get a can of expanding foam (think the stuff they use for wall insultaion). Grab your victim by the Adam's apple, and hold for 10 seconds. When you let go, they gasp. Shoot the foam down their throat. Fills up their lungs, then disintegrates inside the body... after doing the job, of course!

Hey Peaches! Good grid today, once you get started, it flies!
12:56 pm
Dachef

"...Or I'll eat your souls", and we said, "Okay".
12:56 pm
Bloodaxe

"plaayyy the best song in the world...or I'll eat your soul"
12:56 pm
MaverickWill

But Tribute's not the best song in the world. It's a tribute to the best song in the world. And if you look at the music behind the song - there's even a small section I've only heard on the live recordings that's blatantly taken from it - the song's all about Stairway to Heaven.
12:56 pm
Bloodaxe

that's right dached!
12:57 pm
Bloodaxe

this is true maverick, but i can honestly say that I like Tribute much more than I like Stairway to Heaven.
12:57 pm
EvaNadine

"he asked is *snarl* 'be you angels?'
and we said 'Nay. we are but men.' Rock ON!!"
12:57 pm

Hi Dachef - CATHB had lunch at your place last week & enjoyed herself -I still haven't got there yet! Am planning an escape route so mry get there sometime!
12:57 pm

It's more fun, I'll give it that, but Stairway's just awesome.
12:58 pm
Bloodaxe

dang, now i wish i would have brought my dvd with me....7 loooooong months until i can see it again.
12:58 pm
Siouxz

MissyNelson are you around?
12:58 pm
snowyowl

Bye Stidmama!
12:58 pm
Dachef

But why should you not be alarmed if there is a rustle in the hegero
12:58 pm
MaverickWill

Oh, goodness... Livin' On A Prayer just came on my media player. Do I let it play, or not?
12:58 pm
Dachef

Hedgerow, even?
12:59 pm
EvaNadine

you TOTALLY let it play!
12:59 pm
Atalante

Dachef! Hi!
12:59 pm
MaverickWill

Because it's just a sprinkling from the may-queen.
12:59 pm
Bloodaxe

the dvd has footage for them playing on tv shows. they played on Mad TV and Dave Grohl was playing the drums.
12:59 pm
torgone

It's just a spring clean for the May queen . . . .(?)
12:59 pm
Dachef

Hi Ata! LTNC!
1:00 pm
Bloodaxe

Maverick...you NEVER turn off Bon jovi.
1:00 pm
MaverickWill

The weird thing is, neither of us knows if we're right. I think that's the nature of Stairway. Plus, the unbelieveable reverse lyrics...
1:00 pm
Bloodaxe

wow evan....it's obvious that we're both 27;
1:00 pm
EvaNadine

hah -- its a good age to be bloodaxe!

Bloodaxe

yay catty!
1:01 pm
MaverickWill

Oh, I still insist 19's better. I was born the year this came out! Love Bon Jovi, but there's better songs than Prayer...
1:01 pm
Dachef

The lyric "sprinkling for the MayQueen" is an allusion to a pagan festival, where the men were encouraged to consecrate the ground.
1:01 pm
EvaNadine

bon jovi was my first concert....i think i was about 10...heh
1:02 pm
Dachef

BTW, I just totally made that up.

1:05 pm
MaverickWill

My first "concert" (because my sisters wanted to go, so they used me to get their own way) was the Backstreet Boys, age 6, or something...
1:05 pm
Dachef

ah, Spaceballs! "You didnt see anything did you?" "No sir, I specifically did not see you playing with your dolls again sir!" Classic movie.
1:05 pm

some of them are really obscure but everyone on here helps when you're stuck

the first number is the number of letters in the word

3:11 pm

wjydna - you need to bring up the lickety's babble clues link
3:11 pm
metaleather

there's a link there for Lickety's clue page also
3:11 pm
annotherone

that tells you what the first 2 letters are of each word and how long it is
3:12 pm

they vary. the max is 33 although the most i have this year is 28. The smallest is an advanced higher class of 2! That is very unusual though.

I bet it will blood. There are loads of great tefl courses in the uk, so I'm sure there are elsewhere as well. Class sizes for tefl would prob be smaller, though I dunno how it works over there. If you're up for working hard, there's no better fun than teaching a good lesson and getting positive feedback.
