1:55 am
sprite

Basically, you just drop the last two letters. And then you put one consonant in their place :)
1:56 am
Atalante

1:56 am
sprite

*note to self: check plurals and singulars for freakin' sake!*

1:57 am
sprite

until kitty decides you can have another go at it?
1:58 am
Atalante

and that will be when .....?
1:58 am
sprite

Only kitty knows!
1:59 am
Atalante

sprite

Oh Ata: drop first letter from those monopoly sweeties for another combo!
2:01 am
Atalante

I'm not liking this grid -- notonly is it huge but there aren't a whole lot of plain words in it -- at least I can't see them.
2:43 am
jillibus

cares
2:43 am
jillibus

oh, I've done it again, sorry -- should go to bed
2:44 am

jillibus

probably not ;)
2:45 am

I keep being lulled into thinking I can do a grid without reverting to any lists - and then I get one like this and I am useless!

Good! You're one strong lady *hug*
3:06 am
kthdsn

he's back home and everything is pretty much normal which is making it a lot easier to deal with, normality until I get to book my flight
3:07 am
sprite

So very true! He better behave until you are gone.
3:07 am
kkkk

somebody giv me a clue for an 8
3:09 am
sprite

where they bring the dead, kkkk. Mo8
3:09 am
kthdsn

he is behaving now, it's very strange and surreal, it's almost as if nothing ever happened, although I know soon I'm going to be leaving, it's very odd but at least he's not making it awkward and uncomfortable
3:09 am
kkkk

thanks
3:10 am
sprite

That's the best the both of you can do, kate. The less acrimony now, the easier it will be to get the things settled later. Hang in there, you are going to be fine :)
3:15 am
jillibus

I'm fighting for the ac7/36 -- help, please!
3:16 am
sprite

That is a strange one.
First 3 letters of hurting, vowel, first 3 letters of what Tarzan uses to jump through the jungle.
3:19 am
jillibus

thanks sprite. That's not the only strange one here. I don't like this grid at all.
3:22 am
SueMagee

Morning all. This grid is cr5/14. I'm only just over half way and I don't think I've ever struggled like this.
3:23 am
sprite

No, it is not a nice grid at all. I have hit the list at 59 left, never happened before.
3:24 am
sprite

hi SueM :)
3:24 am
SueMagee

Hi sprite. How are you doing?
3:25 am
sprite

with the grid? Slow and not that steady. Otherwise... hanging in there. I am not good in December things.
3:25 am
sprite

How are you?
3:25 am
jillibus

hi sueM -- I'm not even close to half way and have no hope of getting there. Must do Christmas things tomorrow pretty much all day -- running out of time!
3:25 am
SueMagee

Not too bad thanks. One of my dogs is very poorly - she had a major operation ten days ago and that's a real worry.
3:26 am
SueMagee

Hi Jill!
3:26 am
jillibus

Just hoope to get through the a's with the help of sprite, Lickety and morewords!
3:26 am
sprite

Ah, poor dog. Hope she will recover soon, Sue.
3:27 am
Natasha

hi all, thought I'd take advantage of a little insomnia to start the grid. kind of wish I'd decided to read instead.
3:27 am
sprite

sure you will, jilli, just give a call if you need clues. I finally have all As.
3:27 am
jillibus

Oh Sue -- all the best to your dog.
3:27 am
SueMagee

Thanks sprite. I'm afraid she's a martyr to her breeding - the breeder used a sire with known stomach problems and poor Rosie has inherited them.
3:27 am
sprite

Hi Natasha! Yeah, can imagine you feel that way.
3:28 am
sprite

that is criminal, Sue. Really!
3:29 am
mkl

Could someone clue me the ni8,40 please? Trying to finish the 8's so I can quit for the night
3:29 am
SueMagee

It is - I didn't find out until I rang the breeder for advice and got the "You think YOU'VE got problems?" response. She then spelt out what was wrong with the sire.
3:31 am
jillibus

Just looked at how many more a's there are -- no way! Must go to bed. At least I got all down to the ar's and got one of those.
3:31 am
sprite

mkl: first 3 letters of word for stupid guys + to vex/irritate (3rd person singl)
3:31 am
jillibus

Sue -- what breed? What stomach problems? Bloat?
3:31 am
SueMagee

Sleep well, Jill - if you get there!
3:32 am
mkl

Sorry Sprite. Been at this too long tonight. That went WAY over my head.
3:33 am
sprite

lol
3:33 am
SueMagee

Rhodesian Ridgeback, Jill. The vet thought it was bloat, but it wasn't - part of the stomach wall had folded back and blocked the pylorus. The vet doesn't know what's causing the problem. She's to have a barium meal in January.
3:33 am
sprite

let's see...
3:34 am
jillibus

And the breeder knew the sire had that problem or had produced it before? Shame
3:35 am
sprite

Ni8 - first two letters of fake name on chat + first 3 letters of what magicians perform + first 3 letters of what teachers teach.
3:35 am
SueMagee

The breeder owned both the dam and the sire - and knew what the problems were.
3:35 am
sprite

Like I said, it is crimimal, what the breeder did.
3:35 am

ru8? Any clues welcomed.
3:37 am
Karys

sorry you have to be so worried about your dog Sue...hope all will be well :)
3:37 am
SueMagee

She's neutered, Jill. We don't want to breed our dogs, accidentally or otherwise, so we always neuter them.
3:38 am
SueMagee

Thanks Karys. You are all very kind.
3:38 am
sprite

ru8: old broken down building + had for dinner (3rd pers singl)
3:38 am

Good for you, Sue. That breeder should have hers neutered too.
3:39 am
SueMagee

They have now - after I told the Ridgeback Society ALL about my problems.

3:55 am
mkl

3:56 am

One ci6/24 is lemonlike.
The other is quote minus last letter + not him.
3:56 am

Both ci7s start the same as the 8. Play with last letters.
3:58 am

harpjane

Ok, rant is over. I'll babble now.
10:15 am

i don't harpie....and i love christmas despite the commercialism.
10:15 am
Mom

I can only imagine what that is like, Harpjane
10:16 am

When people ask me if I'm "ready for Christmas" I say, "well, I AM ready for a savior to bring God's light into the world. I am NOT done with my shopping and mom is coming and the house isn't clean yet, but who cares?"

Christmas is a cultural phenom as well as a religious holiday, at least in the western world. I have no problem with that. Every now and then there's a crossover....someone new gets excited about the religious part, and somebody religious gets burned out....

11:13 am

11:14 am
metaleather

think back to old movies, and comic strips (such as Terry and the Pirates)... Chinese pirates were often pictured in the area called * * * * *..... the ma6 uses that word, with an extra C in the middle
11:15 am
harpjane

tu6?
11:15 am
Haz1558

Or ma6 - Scottish prefix meaning 'son of' then the ending of spanish food (t***)
11:16 am

11:33 am
Haz1558

Inge - make it more of the sea than the land
11:33 am

anciliary would be good... or archaic... and curlies is there, but not accepted...
11:33 am

11:33 am
EvaNadine

NA7 = plural of a sailors compass (i *think* thats what it is!)

nobody says golly gee... surely...
11:36 am

i do
11:36 am
caitlyn

You are very polite hurshy
11:37 am
hurshy

in that regard, perhaps not in all.
11:37 am
sherb

ironically...?
11:37 am
hurshy

no... i just say things like that. golly GEE, and dang it all anyway! and good gracious me!
11:37 am
hurshy

even the occasional heavens to betsy
11:37 am
kthdsn

why does everything always go wrong at once, my timesheets for last month went missing in the post so I haven't been paid yet, grrrr
11:38 am
sherb

what does golly gee mean, anyway? ...is it one of those expressions with a non-PC hidden meaning?
11:38 am
caitlyn

Nothing stronger hurshy?
11:38 am
metaleather

grrr indeed, kt!
11:38 am
hurshy

i don't know sherb, i think "golly gee" predates political correctness
11:39 am

kth will you get pay before Christmas?
11:39 am

let's see... crap is about as strong as i go
11:39 am

11:39 am

Thats more like my talk now!!
11:40 am
hurshy

come to think of it, i don't really even use it as an interjection, but i will say that things are crappy.
11:40 am
sherb

you mean today's political correctness... I was thinking about, say, the Victorians... they invented lost of expressions, like darn it, to avoid profanities...
11:41 am
hurshy

ah, i see sherb. well i don't really know what golly gee might substitute for.
11:41 am
Haz1558

I'm all for avoiding profanities. I should have been a Victorian.
11:41 am
jan

Golly gee is from golly gee whiz...both halves are corruptions of holy names God and Jesus...
11:41 am
kthdsn

political correctness is such a load of old crap, you can say a person has blond hair but you can't say they have black skin, what's the difference?
11:42 am
hurshy

well there we go.
11:42 am
sherb

ah, thanks Jan... I wondered if it was something like that...
11:42 am
hurshy

i didn't know shakespeare loved a black woman - i'm surprised they don't teach that these days in the curriculum
11:43 am
Haz1558

Can I repeat a policital correctness story? In Northern Ireland, lots of public documents are issued in Irish and Ulster Scots. Except that one couldn't be issued as the translator couldn't come up with anything better for mentally handicapped children than ' big daftie weans'

...somebody ask for some more clues...
11:46 am
hurshy

read this sonnet and you'll see what i mean:
In the old age black was not counted fair,
Or if it were, it bore not beauty's name;
But now is black beauty's successive heir,
And beauty slander'd with a bastard shame:
For since each hand hath put on nature's power,
Fairing the foul with art's false borrow'd face,
Sweet beauty hath no name, no holy bower,
But is profaned, if not lives in disgrace.
Therefore my mistress' brows are raven black,
Her eyes so suited, and they mourners seem
At such who, not born fair, no beauty lack,
Slandering creation with a false esteem:
Yet so they mourn, becoming of their woe,
That every tongue says beauty should look so.
11:49 am
hurshy

sorry sherb - back to word hunting everyone!
11:50 am
hurshy

hmm, unless he just means dark HAIRED... i may have jumped to a conclusion to quickly

ci8 plural of ci7/32
12:01 pm

The ci/8 is the plural of a c/7. It sounds like a mineral word to me (I monkey typed a plausible sounding word, which Enable took. Sadly, I'm missing a couple of 8's that mymonkey has been less helpful for

I have a husband who thinks praise need not be given, that if he says nothing, I should know all is well. And that he only need comment if things are NOT well. So I like to praise even little victories. It makes me silly, I know.
