that's terrible, wordy! I am the ungrateful one here, my kids love about everything we cook and my husband is just the same. They value everything I cook. I just hate having to do it every day.
2:52 am
wurdygurl

you are quite lucky...it has gotten to the point where I just tell them to eat a pbj and that is dinner I dont cook for them anymore
2:52 am
marpocky

just cook for 30 days all at once and throw it all in the freezer
2:52 am
Ankhorite

nite, fran... heck, Wurdy, that's a decent deal
2:52 am
Ankhorite

Let them eat pbj. It's good for them and easy on you.
2:53 am

I need to guess here. Pbj... would that be peanut butter jelly sandwich?
2:53 am

Sprite? Fireworks? Congrats! Yes.
2:53 am

freezer not that big mar - plus I buy frozen pizzas and they take up a lot of room...they like the cheap cardboard pizza. and they like fruit so yes, easy on me

I have an odd question.... are there any folks here who like to pray for other people?
2:55 am
Ankhorite

after the day I fouled up a microwave hotdog, Dear One has begged me to stay out of the kitchen.
2:55 am
wurdygurl

2:56 am

Ankh - why didn't I think of that!
Volleymom: almost every day
2:56 am
Ankhorite

Dee, I know Helen Keller does the white-light thing for people in trouble.
2:56 am
wurdygurl

scrambled eggs in the micro they are a whiz at that
2:56 am
VolleymomDee

what is the white light thing?
2:57 am
Ankhorite

Hmmm, well, I'm not her, so it's hard to describe, but it's kind of a new-age meditation where she pictures the person/dog/etc bathed in white light. She's Bahai; don't know if this is their thing, or her own thing.
2:57 am
Ankhorite

I can do eggs in micro if I remember to poke them, so no kabloom!
2:58 am
VolleymomDee

hmm I've never heard of that before
2:58 am
wurdygurl

ank - only 1 min per egg no kaboom no poke
2:58 am
wurdygurl

what do you have going on dee
2:59 am
Ankhorite

yeah, there are a few traditions that do it -- wiccans, some of them; and other new age traditions; and you'll have to ask Helen about the Bahai. And maybe... maybe Buddhists? Not sure?
2:59 am
VolleymomDee

interesting
2:59 am
Ankhorite

*used to throw a little cheese in with the eggs*
2:59 am

my adult daughter had a bad break up today with a boyfriend; she is heartbroken, even though it was a mutual thing. My mama's heart hurts for her.
3:00 am

She thought they would work out differences and possibly get married.

Good thoughts and prayers will never hurt, Dee. She'll be in my thoughts for a bit now, an dyou too.

Hmmm.... if that means "he'd change," she's better off this way, because that doesn't happen.

3:02 am
Ankhorite

I did not find Dear One until I was THIRTY-EIGHT YEARS OLD.
3:02 am
wurdygurl

I was 30
3:02 am
wurdygurl

and we met on the internet
3:03 am
Ankhorite

And the waiting was not pleasant; but it would have been worse if I had settled and then had had to separate. I would have hated that.
3:03 am
wurdygurl

married in 4 months still going strong 9 years and 2 kids later
3:03 am
VolleymomDee

Lots of her friends are getting married or having babies, so I think she feels "pressure" from peers. Ank, that is what I told her tonight.
3:03 am
wurdygurl

I hear you ankh
3:04 am
Ankhorite

Dee, you're absolutely right, tell her to hang on. Marriage isn't like going to prom. You don't have to just cuz everyone else has to.
3:04 am
wurdygurl

heck, her peers probably enby her
3:04 am
wurdygurl

ooops envy
3:04 am
VolleymomDee

For sure!!! LOL
3:04 am
Ankhorite

I did a consult with a canon lawyer -- you know what that is? -- re annulment of a Catholic wedding.
3:04 am
sprite

I was almost 30 before I met my love. Wrestled with an alcoholic before that. And am ever so glad I stuck to what my heart told me and waited, because I couldn't be any happier with any other man. Over 11 years together now and 2 kids, and still in love.'
3:04 am
Ankhorite

If they don't envy her today, they will when they are divorcing while their kids aren't even in kindergarten yet.
3:05 am
wurdygurl

that catholic things mystifys me
3:05 am
Ankhorite

Anyway, he was working on an annulment for people who had gotten married just cuz everyone else they graduated with was getting married, with no mature judgement about it, in order to fit in -- and
3:06 am
Ankhorite

wanted to think about what would be acceptable grounds for annulment. I suggested fraud, akin to "green card" fraud (immigration fraud, Sprite) because they were just looking for a passport to a certain social status.
3:06 am
VolleymomDee

wow tough situation
3:07 am
sprite

I would go with the fraud suggestion
3:07 am
wurdygurl

how long were they married
3:07 am
joey

done and fading out. good night and good luck
3:07 am
sprite

(and thanks for the explanation, I will remember that one)
3:07 am
Ankhorite

Wurdy, with a compassionate judge -- which my buddy was -- it's easier than you'd think, because a marriage in the face of pregnancy is considered coerced; and lying to the priest who married you about it is considered fraud; and the Church will annul both of those on the grounds that no true adult, informed, freely-formed marriage ever took place. No matter how many kids you have.
3:07 am
Ankhorite

Night-night, Joey.
3:07 am
wurdygurl

night joey
3:07 am
VolleymomDee

night joey
3:08 am

Sprite, not EVERY canon judge will go for it, but many will.
3:08 am

bye and wtg, joey
3:08 am
Ankhorite

Wurdy, this couple, 3-4 yrs, I think.
3:09 am
Ankhorite

About 21 when wed, and about 25 when they looked at each other and thought, "Huh? WHAT? Why am I here?"
3:09 am
wurdygurl

my parents were married for 9 years and then my dad decided to go off and have a affair with his secretary (yes, he is a walking cliche) so after that marraige also ended he met and married his third wife
3:09 am
Ankhorite

Wurdy, the sec didn't realize that if he'd dump one woman, he'd dump two? Don't mean to be hurtful, but...?
3:09 am
wurdygurl

then, since she was catholic, he converted and had his marraige to my mom annuled. i am older now and I get it but boy was I mad back then
3:10 am
wurdygurl

told you he was a cliche what made it worse was her name was bambi
3:10 am
Ankhorite

Anyway, Dee... did you like your daughter's BF? Or will you be glad he's gone?
3:10 am
wurdygurl

and you are not being hurtful this wa sa long time ago
3:10 am
kierlex

good evening everyone
3:10 am
Ankhorite

Wurdy, it always feels like an insult, especially to the kids, to hear (Goodnight, Kier!) that the marriage "never existed" but
3:10 am
VolleymomDee

hi kier
3:10 am
sprite

LOL wurdy, that's too much.
Hi kierlex
3:10 am
wurdygurl

hello kierlex
3:11 am
Ankhorite

But... If the original marriage was induced by pregnancy, that's an automatic annulment.
3:11 am
Ankhorite

Or if they (him or her or both) can prove to the "Defender of the Bond" that they didn't have mature intent... OR...
3:11 am
kierlex

how is the grid tnite? looks hefty!
3:11 am
wurdygurl

nah, not in our case....they were high school sweeties....I still dont fully get it, but whatever differences make the world go round
3:12 am
Ankhorite

OR... if they had an antenuptial agreement -- that's an automatic annulment, cuz the Church considers it proof that they never were TRULY committed to a lifelong bond. Oh, HS sweethearts, then probably grounds were "lack of mature intent"
3:12 am
wurdygurl

oh yeah, the grid, forgot about that lol
3:12 am
sprite

It is rather ok, kier, some stupid words, but lots of nice ones. It is a pretty fast grid too.
3:12 am
Ankhorite

Me too... Dee? Are you there?
3:12 am
kierlex

well i am just starting...
3:12 am
VolleymomDee

sure am
3:13 am
Ankhorite

Kier, there's some silly words in the J's... alternate spellings of something that probably came to English from the French.
3:13 am
wurdygurl

well, with a guy who marries his sec that he is cheating with named bambi who is btw your basic nightmare, then cheats on her and she cleaned him out took everything left him with a cooler and a hot plate lol
3:14 am
Ankhorite

I'll be thinking of your girl tomorrow. Just tell her (from all of us?) she's too good to settle. Waiting is hard, hard, hard, but trying to force a fit is much harder.
3:14 am
VolleymomDee

wow just desserts
3:14 am
kierlex

ok, thanks ankh
3:14 am
wurdygurl

never settle good things come to those who wait...cliches are cliches for a reason
3:14 am
VolleymomDee

so true Ank I'll remember that!!
3:14 am
Ankhorite

Wurdy, sounds like you think the punishment fit the crime... but it means he couldn't support his kids through college? Or your mom?
3:14 am
Ankhorite

:::Bambi? sheesh:::
3:15 am
wurdygurl

oh, he paid child support and stuff
3:15 am
wurdygurl

told ya basic nightmare
3:15 am
Ankhorite

And Dee, always helpful (bet you've already said it), better to split now before there were little ones on the scene.
3:15 am
Ankhorite

Yeah, well... shame on him anyway. Dunderhead.
3:16 am
wurdygurl

yeah he was a jerk, but he grew up and was pretty terrific later in life
3:16 am
VolleymomDee

I mostly listened tonight; she wasn't seeking advice yet, just comfort. I have thought for the last several months that something didn't "feel" right... a mom's intuition I think..
3:16 am
Ankhorite

I was ecstatic when my mom finally divorced my dad, even though we were poor & he didn't pay child support.
3:16 am
marpocky

for sure if a split was going to happen, much easier emotionally and financially to do it before marriage
3:16 am
Ankhorite

*nods with marpocky*

exactly...
3:17 am

*more nodding here*

you could always tell her about how your lifelong dream of her becoming a nun is working itself out! ;)
3:18 am

Dee - Y ou can let her know that yes you talked about her and people in babble land all support her

My hubby's dad has never even seen our daughter, and he lives less than an hour away...

Same here, Dee, my father never saw our kids.
3:19 am

oh volley, that is sad. my dad has only seen my kids a few times and he lives in the same state
3:19 am
VolleymomDee

He is such a creep. She saw him from a distance at a funeral once, but he didn't even walk over to say hello. Those kind of men irritate me to death!
3:20 am
Ankhorite

My parents divorced at 14 years; he died 4 years later, only 39 yrs old. And again, we were happy about it. AND we finally got some support via Social Security -- not much, but a little. Unfortunately, Reagan cut orphans' benefits, so kids these days get no support after 18.
3:20 am
sprite

they are the ones that are missing out, Dee. Not the ones they ignore.
3:20 am
Ankhorite

How does she feel about it, Dee?
3:21 am
VolleymomDee

so true
3:21 am
wurdygurl

dee - that is ridiculous...but sadly, happens all the time. I have a half brother (that sounds wierd dont even think of him that way) anyway he has never met his dad....my mom pointed him out in home depot once and dthat is that. He has met some of his other half siblings though
3:21 am
Ankhorite

Well, yeah, sprite, but... but it's hard not to having a doting grandpa / grandma. So the grandkids DO miss out some. I had the best gramma in the whole world -- not her fault her son was a waste of space.
3:22 am
VolleymomDee

She adored my hubby's stepdad and my dad, so she had great grandfathers regardless. We were blessed!
3:22 am
Ankhorite

I can't even imagine how that brother feels.
3:22 am
Ankhorite

Ah, good, no loss then! :)
3:22 am
VolleymomDee

LOL waste of space = a big fat zero (in my mom's words)
3:22 am
Ankhorite

Heh. I had to fight wiht my mother for YEARS before she learned to stop saying "YOUR father" instead of "MY ex-husband." She picked him, I didn't, not MY fault.
3:23 am

some people simply don't care about anything but themselves. i can't identify, but it's out there
3:23 am

he doesnt talk about it. but he is a good young man just finished college and he is awesome. Great athlete and musician and teacher
3:23 am
wurdygurl

hey he is your age marpocky
3:24 am
Ankhorite

And probably determined to treat HIS kids much better. My dad is the reason my brother & I both chose not to have kids.
3:24 am
wurdygurl

my brother that is
3:24 am
sprite

Ankh, I know. My mother-in-law died when I was pregnant with my daughter. My father-in-law never bothered about his grandkids and with her missing, did not even pretend to anymore. My father did not care either. Only my mother is grandparent to my kids. And even though she has given me hell from birth till now, I keep contact with her just because of the kids. They love each other.

So... are they bilingual, by which I mean, do they speak both languages?
3:29 am

LOL, not a handbag, don't tease me! Little person!
3:29 am
Ankhorite

I've been on Babble for months and never caught the pink/blue thing.
3:30 am

No, we all are native Dutch speakers, so nobody is bilingual here. They are taught english at school though, my son started last year. They pick up so fast at that age.
3:30 am
wurdygurl

that is ok ankh - you are intent on knowing people and dont need to know gender just their ideals
3:31 am
sprite

neither gender nor inclination matters much, as long as you are not in love.
3:31 am

Okay, I'm confused -- Sprite, you're a native Dutch speaker with perfect English, so I'd call you bilingual -- right? Txs, Wurdy.

Almost all dutch people are at least bilingual then, but not from birth. We are such a small country that we always had to learn other languages. But schooling starts at about 9 yo, mostly.

Ah, well, that helps! I agree with Marpocky. I was pretty fluent in German via high school and exposure as a toddler -- but that was 30 years ago, it's gone now.
3:39 am
Haz1558

The learning of languages in Europe is rather more necessary because of the geography.
3:39 am
marpocky

it may be a bit lofty, but i'd like to be able to speak 8 or 10 languages conversantly
3:39 am
Ankhorite

Sprite, how close is Dutch to Afrikaans? Can you read their newspapers? Understand them when they speak?
3:40 am
Ankhorite

Marpocky, go for it. I have friends who can. The canon lawyer, in fact: Latin, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, English, German and something I forget.
3:40 am
sprite

To read Afrikaans is easier than to understand it when it is spoken, but I usually can manage.
3:40 am
Ankhorite

Polish, maybe? He spent a lot of time in Rome.
3:40 am
marpocky

i guess i see how geography affects it. oz and new zealand both speak english, so there's no big country nearby with another language. here, spanish and french cover pretty much the western hemisphere save brazil. europe is swimming in languages
3:40 am
sprite

Go for it, marpocky. With every new language it gets easier, because you will see underlying structures much easier.
3:41 am
Ankhorite

With German, I can *almost* read Afrikaans, sorta kinda -- i can get a general sense of what they're talking about, but that's it.
3:41 am
Ankhorite

It amazes me Basque still exists.
3:41 am
marpocky

in addition to english, i know varying amounts of spanish, russian, and japanese, and would like to also learn french, dutch, german, italian, portuguese, polish, mandarin, and arabic
3:41 am
sprite

German is close to Dutch, but Afrikaans is much closer.

3:42 am
Ankhorite

OOOOH! Dear One started Mandarin out in California -- no use for it here in Virginia, though.
3:42 am
Ankhorite

Kanga, don't. At my age, my German is gone and I have only a desperately small spattering of Spanish -- adonde esta el banyo?
3:43 am
sprite

why on earth should you feel that way, kanga? We all excel in our own things and ways! You do too.
3:43 am
sprite

lol Anhk - that's probably like "papa fume un pipe"
3:44 am
kangabrat

at least i can spell inadequate...
3:45 am
kangabrat

and a smattering of tok pisin! (language of my birthplace, papua new guinea)
3:46 am
sprite

wow!
3:46 am
marpocky

adonde está el baño (or where is the bathroom for that matter) is so much easier than saying dansei-yoo no o-tearai wa doko desu ka
3:46 am
Ankhorite

Yes, but that's the most important phrase in any language!
3:47 am
Ankhorite

Of course, crossing your legs and bouncing up and down is pretty universal, but lacks dignity and politesse
3:47 am
sprite

but will induce fast help, usually
3:48 am
kangabrat

but if it gets you what you need...
3:48 am
kierlex

boy you all are full of energy and chat tonight =)
3:50 am
sprite

And it is much politer than saying "Do you point me the bathroom now or do I wet your carpet?"
3:50 am
sprite

which is what a friend of mine said after having to listen to endless stories on the rebuilding of the house, when he asked for the bathroom.
3:50 am
kangabrat

i once had to work out the greek to explain my daughter had had an accident on the sheets... (she was 3 months old)
3:51 am
sprite

that's terrible, kanga. Was she okay?
3:52 am
Ankhorite

Naaah, Kier, I'm tired... this is my last hurrah. :)
3:52 am
Ankhorite

"An accident" as in a full diaper, or "an accident" like fall down go boom?
3:52 am
kangabrat

she was fine... just a mistime with the nappy... but hard to explain from a greek phrasebook
3:53 am
kangabrat

that's diaper...
3:53 am
sprite

ah, ok, still tough but not as urgent :)
3:53 am
Ankhorite

Sprite, maybe you read "street" for "sheet"?
3:54 am

I did - only see it now! Thanks.

Open a new window with babble in it, scroll down to Friends of Babble, bottom left of page, click on Lickety's babble clues. Reduce it in size and you can have Lickety's list beside your own words. Enter your words in Lickety's list and it will place them automatically.

Okay, I shall take myself and the dog off to get some fresh air. Then my daughter's car is due for MOT later today (inspection for roadworthiness) and I have to get it steam-cleaned underneath. That means driving it up and reversing off a ramp. I don't like doing it very much, but I will NOT be like some other women who step out of the car to let the man drive it up. I'm no feminist but you have to take a stand somewhere. Hope to see you again tomorrow!

that happened to me about 3 years ago Uneaixoise, and we had never lost power in our little town for more than an hour

hi cadanam, welcome!
4:40 pm
jillibus

Hello cadanam! If you hadn't passed the 2-week trial period when you went pro you wouldn't notice any difference except that you now have a flag and an icon and a profile. If you hadn't gone pro you would have lost the tiles and the number of words to find and such. For help, scroll down to Friends of Babble and go to AngelSong's link. For the 2-letter start to words, go to LicketySplit's link. Have fun!
4:41 pm
Dachef

cadaman - the biggest diff when you go pro is that the tile stats show you how many words you haven't found. Sigh. Anyway - welcome but beware! This stuff is addictive!
4:42 pm
cadanam

hello gramm and thanks jillibus - that's a great help! Unfortunately Dachef, your advice comes a little late as I'm already burning the midnight oil babbling :)

cadanam - wait till you wake up on the keyboard! You know you've got it bad when you print off the tile stats and take it to work. And whatever anyone else tells you, the drugs dont work.

Well, The Scarlet Letter is pretty well known as are many of his other works but maybe American Lit is not a big focus in the UK?
