i think i finished right at the last second, got my last word checked on lickety's list, but the flip came & no fireworks - that's never happened to me before - talk about cutting it close - is there anyway i can find out if i officially finished the grid?

jillibus

No, this is too much, and I'm beginning to lose interest. I have a life besides this.

CsCdeFounder

well, jilli, me personally...while i'm new to this game, this isn't the first game i've played whose setup is exactly like boggle/tangleword/word racer, so i find this to be pretty easy. I also happen to type extremely fast and since there's no penalties for typing in wrong guesses, that pretty much gives me free reign to type whatever words i want in.
1:14 am
BabbleRabble

congratulations, Cs ... I will always be the tortoise that never beats the hare .. . even, I enjoy the challenge
1:17 am
CsCdeFounder

i enjoy the challenge as well, as this game still isn't unbelievably easy to play either. I always manage to get stuck on 3 or 4 small words which in a puzzle of 300+ words, is like looking for a needle in the proverbial haystack. But usually at that point, I'll just start typing in every single combo for a word I can think of, even if they don't sound like words to me.
1:18 am
jillibus

Whatever, Cs, you're obviously miles ahead of the likes of me!
1:19 am
BabbleRabble

Why compare? Kudos to Cs! Kudos to you!
1:19 am
Jellen

Absolutely, BabbleRabble!
1:21 am
CsCdeFounder

i'm not comparing, jilli, nor am i trying to make anyone feel bad. Sorry if that's how you or anyone else took it. I'm just saying I've played games like this one before, and also tons of other word games online, so that helps out when I play this game. I'm not trying to belittle the game for anyone and I'm sorry if it came across that way.
1:22 am

That is not my intention either, Cs. You are a remarkable player. I tip my hat to you!

2:47 am
CsCdeFounder

i'm usually curious about the age ranges because in my experience, i've usually found that most people my age don't seem to be into word games, so the average age range i seem to encounter in word games is in the 40-65 range, with some younger and some older
2:47 am
loredana

Never mind Lickety imagine all the work you will get done so when they arrive home you be able to spend time with them and remember absence makes the heart grow fonder and we will look after you

Is it? I bought an American book - Easy cooking with 5 ingredients has a recipe for Kahlua, bought it to get rid of the pesky packet products in my fridge/cupboard. The next 2 weeks have been labeled Apocalypse week - sounds more interesting than 'getting rid of the crap in the cupboards and fridge'
2:53 am
FMitch

I don't know about that ursh considering the lenght of CdCs's postings but then men do go on sometimes :)

3:34 am
CsCdeFounder

i understand, granny...but at this point, i can only handle so much stress and cigarettes happen to be my outlet/relief...it's the not knowing what's wrong with me that is stressful, not to mention going to the doctors/specialists/hospitals all the time and coming up empty...i'm sure smoking doesn't help matters, but it's how i halfway cope with the stress
3:34 am

bye sunny, enjoy both!

3:59 am
Haz1558

Not only that, there are firearms available - usually for shooting cattle, but hey, he's adaptable. I know my place.
4:00 am

Wurdy i used to live in a unit opposite a big JW church they were nice and i wasnt allowed to be mean to them (the ex said to behave) Scarlet, using grey water is a big thing her. I had to let my garden at my old house die, it was sad
9:41 am

yes, they do. Now, I have in laws that are JW, so I can't have as much fun with them as I used to

I've even taken to plugging the bathtub when showering, to scoop out the used water to feed the gardens...

We do the mellow yellow too. People are always shocked at how low our water/sewer bill is. Sometimes people have bill thrice ours
9:45 am

Isn't ice water, though, Lady? I don't get that one...
9:45 am
LeslieAnn

or actually, probably not a very good magician, if she needed 2 poofs.
9:45 am

We conserve water, too, only flushing when necessary (or if people are coming over!), I capture wash water to flush kitty litter down (flushable corn-based litter).

Ok Scarlet a smattering of Ice melts over the course of the night and the urinal cleans its self slowly, were as the standard system the water flows frequently, think leaky tap
9:47 am

Okay, I get it now, Lady. Gosh, the ladies in here have some excellent ideas for water conservation. Yours is a good one too, bichon. We don't run a dehumidifier, though...

Scarlet i think the toliets get cleaned anyway at the end of the night. Ok what really irks me the most is schools that have leaky taps and toilets, drives me batty. All schools should have rainwater tanks, duel flush bogs and non leaky taps

Our basement is a living space [when kids lived at home] and we have furniture down there. It would be all mildewed if we didn't run one. We are very parsimonious. We compost every bit of vegetable matter.

We, too, have a compost bin that beloved built for me when I am pulling weeds, etc., using the broken, crushed eggshells, coffee grounds and veggie and fruit peels... it all goes in!~ LOL, Fiber!!

9:52 am
Scarlet

What is that, Fiber?
9:52 am
herinfernallady

Oh also Starbucks have free used grinds to put in composts. I think in AUstralia it is a law to have dual flush dunnys in house or something odd like that
9:52 am
Fiber Art

"Little water" for number one, "big water" for number 2
9:53 am
bichon

Some houses have a half brick in the dunny if its a single flush it does the same thing
9:54 am
LeslieAnn

well, with the hundreds of words we've had lately it's easier for words to keep showing up
9:54 am
Scarlet

Excellent idea... never heard of it. We have the mellow yellow in effect now... and a gallon jug of chlorine bleach alongside for me to keep things sparkling.../
9:54 am

5:38 pm
Niamh

this is what I found: Ecky-Thump (pronounced ehk-ee thoooomp) is an ancient and traditional martial art originating from Lancaster, Lancashire in Northern England. Similar but superior to Kung Fu in many respects, it utilizes long, fierce-looking Black Puddings in place of more inferior Eastern weaponry. Practitioners of the martial art are easily distinguished through their ritualistic flat caps and accompanying whippets.

6:50 pm
stidmama

hurshy, if it's any consolation... you look good in scarlet... ;-)
6:51 pm
LeslieAnn

6:51 pm
Jacula

hursh - ((HUGS))
6:51 pm
featherbee

random freebie: ro5/14: r + sounds like word for swear or curse or promise, with different second vowel. then plural.
6:51 pm
stidmama

6:52 pm
hurshy

migraines suck big time. *hugs stid very gently*
6:52 pm

{{{hurshy}}} it's none of th5 business... *emphatic protective nod of the head*
6:52 pm
evanonut

*lays out bottles of sparkling water and migrain meds*
6:53 pm
Jacula

LA - knobbly old trees (and knees!) are gn6/30, or full of gn6/24.
6:53 pm
stidmama

thanks all, I knew you would understand.
6:53 pm
LeslieAnn

i'm sort of named after her, monkey... not like my parents wanted me to follow in her footsteps, they just liked the name. and clue is one of my favorite movies of all time.
6:53 pm
featherbee

oh, nutty's preparing a migraine feast! make sure it's under a very dark shady tree though.
6:53 pm
MonkeyMind

stid...get in bed, turn off the lights and cover your head with a pillow. the computer light will exacerbate it
6:53 pm
sprite

hursh, hope your family will respect you and your decisions. I wish you all happiness possible, and fast :)
6:53 pm
MonkeyMind

leslieanne...i worked on it!
6:53 pm
bichon

sl8 please
6:53 pm
MonkeyMind

i was the director's assistant on it. what a small world
6:53 pm
evanonut

*looks up a sweeping weeping willow*
6:54 pm
stidmama

yes, VERY dark and shady. I have turned the monitor down, and wearing my shades MonkeyMind... thanks for the concern.
6:54 pm
hurshy

but even if they didn't know, *i* knew, and i feel terrible listening to the vows...
6:54 pm
LeslieAnn

you worked on it? that is the coolest thing i've ever heard
6:54 pm
LeslieAnn

i had that gn 6/24, thanks, i am looking for the last one, after the annoying bug
6:54 pm
featherbee

*giggle* i love listening to daniel's play talk when he's in the tub.
6:54 pm
MonkeyMind

eh...not so cool or glamorous. it's kind of the staple out here in l.a.
6:54 pm
MonkeyMind

but it was fun for sure
6:55 pm
LeslieAnn

such a wacky group of people around all the time!
6:55 pm
MonkeyMind

stid...i get migraines, too. i get that aura first, and take an imitrex immediately
6:55 pm
stidmama

stidmatt used to say, "dub dub dub whoosh!" when playing with fishies... [translate: glub glub glub splash!]
6:55 pm
Jellen

g + plural of sniffer
6:55 pm
LeslieAnn

do you work on movies for a job, monkey, or just something you did on the side?
6:55 pm
Jacula

hursh - I know what you mean about listening to the vows. After my hubby left me I couldn't go to a wedding for ages for fear of loudly saying, 'HA!' (in a bitter sort of way). I guess the boot on the other foot feels just as bad...
6:55 pm
stidmama

I usually get an aura, too. This one had no warning. Hit me hard and fast and I lay down for two hours.
6:55 pm
LeslieAnn

ah thanks jellen
6:56 pm
sprite

hursh, not that I know you very well of course, but th5 are several kinds of cheating and being untrue to your vows. You cannot have been happy with your husband if you have decided to cheat on him. The5 must have been pain and emptiness in your relation before... and your husband was responsible for that as well.
6:56 pm
featherbee

he's saying choo choo, playing with his tub thomas i think. other random noises too. oh, yesterday, for the better part of the day, he was "george" and i was the man in the yellow hat!
6:56 pm
MonkeyMind

leslie, i used to work in production. now i cast commercials
6:56 pm
MonkeyMind

6:56 pm
stidmama

too cute, feather!
6:56 pm
LeslieAnn

oooh anything we might have seen?
6:56 pm
featherbee

ok, he's done i think. might bbl!
6:56 pm
hurshy

well i didn't DECIDE to cheat on him, it just HAPPENED.
6:56 pm
Jacula

sprite's right, hursh. There must be a problem of some kind for the severance to take place.
6:57 pm
Jellen

he5/16, last?
6:57 pm
LeslieAnn

re 6/21 and re 7/32, i'm assuming combo?
6:57 pm
stidmama

I grayed the S in the top corner all by myself!

6:59 pm
stidmama

hurshy -- I "played the field" for a long time before I found the right man. Occasionally there is a twinge of guilt... but the truth is, w
