I'm also a computer geek, hense Geekmeister. I work with them and teach part time at the local college. I always say there are 2 words for computers, the second word being computer. I leave the first word to your imagination. Keep a chin up. I've been to British Columbia. I have cousins there and Nova Scotia. beautiful country!!!

jilli, didn't know you where 80. Cann't tell via internet. You seem prety sharp to me.
12:50 am
jillibus

computers are idiots and I'm the one who nearly deleted all the books in the library because I forgot to enter a number when I was tired
12:50 am

i find internet ranting quite therapeutic, jilli. and free to boot :)

joso, you can find out about people if you click on their icons, lol
12:51 am
Jellen

Library systems have backups, just in case that does happen
12:51 am
cybernan

is ar 9 a plural?
12:51 am
dcseain

frankly, jilli, if not entering a single number deletes the catalogue, something is wrong with the system, not you.
12:51 am
jillibus

and you're all reviving me and my sense of humour and proportion
12:51 am
Geekmeister

Remember, even if that happened, they just restore teh backup... Nothing catostrophic... It happens all the time!
12:51 am
dcseain

don't know, nan.
12:51 am
joso

I know, just saying it dosen't seem like you are loosing it from this point of view.
12:51 am
jesdraggon

computers are evil jilli. it's a conspiracy against you ;)
12:51 am
herinfernallady

Jill as the lovely Sprite says 'when i grow up i want to be like you'
12:52 am
melonheadjujube

jilli, any computer system that can delete things because of one key enetered or not is poorly designed. besides, files should be backed up. i'm speaking from my experience as a programmer and a bureaucrat.
12:52 am
jesdraggon

so be thankful for small favors--it didn't catch fire!
12:52 am
loredana

Jilli I think someone has been pulling your leg because no software programme would allow that to happen!!!

eh, ur being too hard on yourself, IMHO.
12:53 am

there is a backup, but because of my inattention, several others are to be inconvenienced and I'm loaded with guilt

gigantic mass {{{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}}} to you all -- I REALLY feel better now -- let's change the subject xoxoxoxo
12:55 am
Geekmeister

Think of it as giving them the opportunity to test their backup restoral process. If they never test it, how do they know they have a good one :-)
12:55 am
melonheadjujube

i have that - the one before that
12:55 am
loredana

Jilli you get hold of that guilt and give it a big kick out the door!!! your co-workers should be ashamed of themselves maybe a little envy going around that library me thinks

1:36 am
jillibus

1:37 am

1:39 am

1:39 am
sprite

jilli... just read back. If you wanna email, my addy is in the profile, just leave out all spaces. The coworkers are probably just jealous of you ;)
1:39 am
jillibus

oh, what a prize hubby, kiwi!!!
1:40 am
GroovyKiwi

he has small moments in time jilli lol
1:40 am
sprite

his way of showing his affection, Kiwi *hug*
1:41 am
GroovyKiwi

1:42 am
sprite

that was what I was thinking, Kiwi... Remembered what you told us and thought that there must be warm feelings under all the cold.
1:42 am
joso

hi sprite, great vidios this week
1:42 am
sprite

glad you like them, joso! It was such a pleasure collecting them :)
1:42 am
jillibus

the co-workers are not at all jealous -- they are great people, much more capable than I am -- we are all volunteers and the guy I inconvenienced the most is a retired PhD in physics, a very gentle man, so when he didn't disagree that I might be getting incompetent i have to take that to heart
1:43 am
GroovyKiwi

sprite only thing warm at the moment is the fire lolol
1:43 am
sprite

jilli, does this happen to you a lot lately or is this a singular incident?
1:43 am
herinfernallady

la sigh
1:43 am
sprite

and you, Kiwi, and you. Don't forget :D
1:44 am
helenkeller

yes, i agree - great videos choices sprite - i said the other night, that i was kinda bored at the start of the rainman one, but i'm really glad i'm stubborn & stuck with it - amazing!
1:44 am
GroovyKiwi

phhhhht lolol
1:44 am
jillibus

oh yes, sprite -- your video today with the fantastic juggler was a wonder! Thansk you so much for finding it!
1:44 am
herinfernallady

Sprite Video Rocks
1:44 am
helenkeller

i was thinking that this guy is like a human computer, you just gotta feed him the right information & then ask the right questions & he might just be able to tell you the meaning of life :)
1:45 am
joso

glad you shared them, widly varried, and all interesting
1:45 am
sprite

ah, I am glad you stuck with it, helen. Isn't it just brilliant! I was so impressed with the Rainman. Exactly what you describe! He seems to be so close to the unknowable answers.
1:45 am
helenkeller

yes, today's made me laugh & i applauded right along with the audience at the end - that's a lot of physicality there
1:46 am
sprite

When lickety said I had to fill the week, I decided to pick videos that touched me, no matter how. Some funny, some interesting, some amazing, some heroic.
1:46 am
helenkeller

great choices, well done sprite!
1:47 am
sprite

I am glowing from pleasure right now, so glad you like the videos :D
1:47 am
joso

oh, very much, every one.
1:47 am
jillibus

sprite, I've forgotten more appointments lately than usual but I've also been taking on more addictions like Babble and Geni (the family tree thing) and writing articles about the bridge results -- feeling a bit overwhemed -- but I guess not handling the overload as well as I used to
1:47 am
Atalante

HI Ata
1:48 am

jilli, duplicate or rubber?
1:48 am
herinfernallady

Ata your sign i say it as 'explosive dogs at work'
1:48 am
sprite

what I so loved about the juggler... he dances. There is an incredible beauty in each of his movements that comes purely from merging with his art.
1:48 am
dcseain

evening, ata
1:48 am
sprite

hi Ata :)
1:48 am
Atalante

lol exactly, herin
1:48 am

1:49 am
herinfernallady

Be very very very careful dogs go 'poof' in this area'
1:50 am
jillibus

exactly, sprite, about the juggler. I wish I'd seen the Rainman, but as you've suggestd, I can catch it later -- if I have time, which seems to be getting scarcer and scarcer!
1:50 am
sprite

jilli... handling a real overload less easy is pretty normal at your age. I am really sorry you felt incompetent today and no one supported you. Please believe me when I say that I think you are a wonder all to yourself. We are all entitled to make mistakes, even a series of them, especially when it is all a bit muchish.
1:50 am
joso

the magnetic phsyics one, bizzare how like life the patterns where, like coral growth or brain patterns, 2 legged dog, juggler. alway a good suprise, what should be in the bottom of a crackerjack box.

2:13 am
sprite

I search for keywords, jilli. When I find a theme that I think could hold some treasures, I type in the keyword and check out the results. Lots of nonsense there, but some real nice ones too :)
2:13 am

not only the subject, but the way it was filmed
2:14 am

oh yes, I agree, jilli! To me it felt like I was gifted with a view on how he experiences things, from the inside almost.

3:19 am
loredana

granadan

OMg WHAT A WASTE! I ue the blank aida too, but have to do very small projects
3:48 am
herinfernallady

Andree that is rude. If you did the chairs i would gladly say keep it. I am not a fan of patterned cross stitch. Long stitch yes but not cross stitch as they never get the pattern printed right
3:48 am
Andree

i thought it funny that she was intimidated by it
3:48 am
Atalante

I dont like patterned aida, or aida in general. I love evenweave

I'd appreciate knowing if se5/18 is a variant spelling of a place or if it has another definition altogether? Got it by accident (is that what y'all call 'monkey'ing?) but it won't fix in the memory without a reference.

Hi Andree too.

Thanks FM but I started out that way, found nothing, and then googled "define" without result --- except that it turned up as a MISspelling of a common...very common!...place.
4:32 am
FMitch

ooo that is very frustrating when it does that.
4:33 am
Atalante

there's one se5/18 that is a type of wampum
4:34 am
FMitch

To which I must ask what is a wampum - and don't answer its a type of se5/18!
4:34 am
Atalante

every helpful, eh?
4:34 am
jwr

There's more than one se5/18?
4:35 am

Atalante -- you must have a secret dictionary; I'll be wampumed if I can find it. Thanx anyway -- I'm a bit more than halfway in the grid but 9/10ths asleep.
4:37 am

Well thats why I was worried Haz.
4:38 am
Atalante

lol I just clicked on the ? and followed the trail (but I did know it anyway from doing that before in babble!)

update on my Bob Haz - he lives (really a cat in disguise - 9 lives) - it could be a stroke or meningitus or brain tumor or viral infection or or or ?????? he is getting better although back leg still gives way and still veering to the right - we are all getting used to a dog leaning on us/wall/chair as he tries to get around - I really don't know what to do
4:45 am

Have you seen my beloved Madagascan hedgehog is back in the grid along with the exploding mountain!

FMitch

lynxxx how old is Bob?
4:46 am
lynxxx

14 years....I know it will come to me - the hedgehog that is!
4:47 am
Haz1558

lynxxx - it sounds as though the vets don't really know what is going on, they tend not to rush in when they think it's a stroke because they can recover more quickly than humans. Probably best to wait for a while to see if there is any improvment.
4:47 am

Gosh that is a good age.

Hi Mom
Hey sprite and Scrabbler and TO and, and, everyone

Jacula

Scrabbs - I've got bad bews for you. The object of your affection is already married and has 2 kids. Here's his bio:"Giles Andreae is Britain's best-selling contemporary poet, through his personas "Purple Ronnie" and "Edward Monkton".

A graduate of Oxford University, Andreae completed his degree under difficult circumstances as he developed Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph glands, and began an intensive course of chemotherapy and radiotherapy the day before his final exams began. He managed to sit some of his papers, and was awarded an upper second class degree.

Giles lives with his wife Victoria, a children’s clothes designer for Mini-Boden, in Notting Hill, where he shares an office with writer Richard Curtis and radio and TV presenter Mariella Frostrup.

He also has a seaside retreat in Dorset. Giles and Victoria have three children: Flinn, and twins, Freya and Nat, who were born at the end of the last millennium."

8:14 am

i won't use words whose origin is meant as a put down on all women, tw 4 is such a word. lid i think you got that backwards.
8:14 am

i won't use words whose origin is meant as a put down on all women, tw 4 is such a word. lid i think you got that backwards.

i'm not putting down all women
8:15 am
72 Temple Owl

what ever...do you use the cu word, too?
8:15 am
Haz1558

Are you not feeling well, TO? I'm judging from some of the comments earlier, not from the fact that you're not playing.
8:16 am
72 Temple Owl

affirmative, haz....
8:16 am
lideola

when it fits, but not usually- they aren't in the same class as each other in my opinion
8:16 am
Haz1558

I hope you get better soon.
8:16 am
lideola

with each other i mean
8:17 am

ah, my understanding is tw is a brtit versin of cu word. i work with sailors, but i draw the line at those words.

8:18 am

My ma used to tend bar near Quantico, and i'm certain some jarheads learned vocab from her. :)
8:19 am

i've always just thought that cu was extremely derogatory and tw was just not nice
8:19 am
Anniebrook

they are both the same
8:20 am
Haz1558

And endlessly repeating hints of the words isn't particularly uplifting.....
8:20 am
saintfranny

lideola - the twa word describes my horrid neighbor as wel i agree - in some instances, some words just fit better than others. if it offends the sensibilities, well - that Person offends My sensibilities! :)
8:20 am
lideola

i know they have the same anatomical meaning, yes they are the same- but my understanding of the connotation is different
8:21 am
dcseain

woo! greyed the W. Two tiles down, 23 to go.
8:21 am
lideola

and are either regular parts of my vocabulary? no
8:22 am

wow - good job dc

i think "woot" should be acceptable -- i say it ALL the time. :)
8:24 am

problem with starting the grid when it's new, and then coming back to it 8 hours later - i keep repeating words i already have!
8:24 am
chiley

I'm quite sure I've seen Bush do a war da5/14, but I guess it is not a compound word
8:24 am
dcseain

yes, i think so too, as well as woots. Of coures, it doesn't allow the plural of the Indian oven, ta7/32, either.
8:24 am
Marc Freeman

Good morning. What a grid for a Monday morning when we had such a small grid yesterday when I had time. Anyway, I need a clue for re7/60 the first one, please?

8:24 am

hmmm just tried warda5/14 and its not a word, thought for sure that would be
8:24 am
dcseain

ta7/32 type of Indian cooking
8:25 am

Hello all. I usually lurk this time of the morning because I don't have much time, but I have to comment on this issue. When I was in Junior High School, I was very naive. I overheard one of the girls on my cheerleading squad say the tw word and I figured it was the same as the twi word. So I was sitting in my civics class and my teacher (a male) called me a twi. I promptly responded by calling him tw4/8. There was a hush over the whole class. He called me out in the hall and asked me if I knew what that word meant. When I said no, he told me to go home and ask my mother. Man was she appalled when I asked her what it meant and I told her I called Mr. Evans that. Ah...good times...

8:35 am
lideola

8:35 am
dcseain

8:37 am

8:38 am
dcseain

it was in the 50s in Springfield, VA when i left work.
8:40 am
EvaNadine

im just a cold person by nature -- the BF will crank the AC while im pulling a blanket over myself...heh
8:40 am
dcseain

i don't chill easily. Got home an threw open the windows, but will close them before i sleep. Saves on cooling.
8:41 am
EvaNadine

yes, lunchtime outside and the walk home from the metro are quite nice...
but AC has a tendancy to give me a chill that i cant overcome...
i have my feet basking in front of the space-heater in my cubicle as we speak. :)
8:42 am
dcseain

i should suggest that the the tiny woman who's always cold at work. Thank you, EvaN.
8:43 am
dcseain

short wii break, back soon
8:43 am
EvaNadine

i dont think we are really "allowed" to have space-heaters here, as they are considered a "fire hazard."
but ive had mine for the almost-7 years ive been here, and god help the person who tries to take it away from me!

8:57 am

re 7,44 clue please
8:59 am

my roommate has the wii, so we dont have many games for it...the wii boxing kicked my butt though!
8:59 am
dcseain

the boxing is a great cardio, and whole body, workout.
9:00 am
EvaNadine

ive only played it 2-3 times...too much cardio for me!
9:01 am

I used it to get in shape for the hiking season, and plan to use it more through the winter.

9:33 am

9:33 am

The other ending is not any better, either, then the first five letters ending with I be* you will get it.
9:34 am

You will never learn proper english from babble!

personally i feel whatever this dictionary is, no english teacher or educated person would use many of these words.
9:41 am
EvaNadine

really? you guys dont think that WO6 is normal?
ive certainly heard it used, and by well-educated people...
*shrug*

10:21 am

just got the ar9. funny one
10:22 am
Haz1558

ar6/18 - meaning to stop or put into custody. The picnic pest is shorthand cluing for the insect that sounds like your mother or father's sister.

Grinning from ear to ear......or should that be gurning from ear to ear.
10:29 am
Haz1558

Oh no, don't pull faces, Frances. I promise you, you'll enjoy it.
10:30 am
Scarlet

I had the most diabolical thought the other day: what if a grid were to start all its words with the same two letters? Say, a 150-word grid... wouldn't that be the challenge of an age?
10:30 am
Takuma Sato

Woo Hoo! huge one today! How are you guys finding it?
10:31 am

HI, TS... fun!

Hello Takuma. I'm just debating whether to shoot Scarlet or not.
10:31 am

But, but... Eva... don't you like me anymore! LOL, TS
10:31 am
Haz1558

It's a great grid, you'll enjoy it.
10:31 am

Now that is a thought Red.
10:31 am

I'd have to guess that is impossible, scarlet
10:31 am

10:32 am
Scarlet

Up against the stone wall, no blindfold, and one last cigarette, first, Haz!
10:32 am
Frances

By the way, forgive my bad manners. I forgot to say hello to everyone.
10:32 am
Takuma Sato

I played around with writing grid-generators a couple years ago, and I think there may not be a 150-word grid starting with just two tiles
10:32 am
Haz1558

Something like that. But with the no smoking policies these days you might have to forego the cigarette.
10:32 am
Haz1558

Just in case you pollute the atmosphere.
10:33 am
Takuma Sato

(there are those chocolate-candy cigarettes -- substitute those?)
10:33 am
Frances

But surely out in the open you can smoke.
10:33 am
Scarlet

Of course... that's the utmost consideration before my execution..
10:33 am
Haz1558

I suppose so. An open air execution would be of advantage to the tobacco addicted.
10:34 am
Frances

At the weekend I saw someone 'smoking' an electronic cigarette.....weird.
10:34 am
Takuma Sato

I've heard of those, Frances. poor sot replacing tobacco damage with EMF damage...
10:34 am
Scarlet

WHAT?
10:34 am
Haz1558

How did it work? Non-technical explanation preferred.
10:35 am
Scarlet

The EMFs have already had their way with us, TS
10:35 am
Takuma Sato

heh, but we don't often spend a lot of time with EMF generators inserted into our heads ;)
10:35 am
Takuma Sato

save earphones, I guess
10:36 am
Frances

Battery operated and I think has nicotine in it somewhere and vapour. As I said, weird.
10:36 am
Scarlet

That is too strange for me to weigh this morning...
10:37 am
Haz1558

It sounds like something you'd find advertised in the Sunday supplements. You know, the sort of things nobody needs nor wants but someone has invented it and thinks it should be sold.
10:37 am
Scarlet

That is right up there with pet rocks and plastic flowers...
10:37 am
Scarlet

Oh, yes, Haz!
10:37 am
Haz1558

And singing plastic fish.
10:38 am
Scarlet

Yes, the country-music twanging Bass on a Plaquard... I must have one.
10:38 am
Haz1558

You get them too, Scarlet? Nasal hair always seems to be a prime target.
10:38 am

And keeping things clean.

quote:
The ElectroCig works from a micro circuit controlled atomiser and a nicotine cartridge.



The nicotine is not burnt, it’s atomised into an odourless gas that looks and tastes like smoke but is not smoke.



No heat, flame or smoke, no yellow fingers/teeth, stinking ashtrays/cars/apartments or clothes.





When you draw on th filter it feels just like a cigarette, and you inhale it just as you would with a conventional cigarette but when you exhale there is a little nictone/water vapour fume that is emitted which gives the feeling of real smoking but is not really smoke so it's perfectly legal.



It glows like a real cigarette at the end when you inhale but is not alight and it runs on a 4.7V lithium rechargeable battery.

12:17 pm

Hello, Atalante. Was the pre-sunset beautiful?
12:17 pm
flosey

love it when we can put the clothes on the line - they smell so much fresher than out of the dryer
12:18 pm
Atalante

it was really beautiful. very peaceful and golden
12:18 pm
Haz1558

And it's so much cheaper, flosey, our electricity costs are very high.
12:18 pm
flosey

that too
12:18 pm
Scarlet

We are not permitted to put up a clothesline here, but I am using the sun for "rack-drying" as much as possible.
12:19 pm
Scarlet

Ata... that is such a gift... to be able to "see" what others are too enmeshed to observe.
12:19 pm
Haz1558

Not permitted to put up a clothesline? How sad! I love hanging washing out.
12:19 pm
Scarlet

I know! That fragrance is unlike any other...
12:19 pm
flosey

we're lucky to be out of sight of our neighbours so no problem there - but we do have to lock up when not home
12:20 pm
Atalante

what would happen if you did put up a clothes line in rebelliuos defiance?
12:20 pm
flosey

usually pretty safe here but every once in a while we've had unwelcome 'visitors'
12:20 pm
Haz1558

Would the wiccans not join in the protest?
12:21 pm

Laundry wars. I see the headlines.

So as well as remembering never to go to bed angry, you have to remember to bring in all your underpinnings.
12:22 pm
Scarlet

The doctor who owns this property has been so good to us... she had central air conditioning installed as soon as she knew that beloved has Parkinson's... I just think she wants the neighborhood to be as pristine a "nature reserve" as possible. Haz, you are more right than you know. We have three wicca lliving nearby! LOL
12:23 pm
flosey

but one would think the conservation of hydro might be an issue
12:23 pm
Haz1558

I do miss the sight of white nappies on washing lines. Everyone's into disposables now, but there's something terribly satisfying about their whiteness.
12:23 pm
Scarlet

Flosey, that is so logical...
12:23 pm
Scarlet

And the fragrance of fresh diapers... I loved doing that wash when the children were babies...
12:24 pm
flosey

how well I remember Haz - middle of winter, bringing in huge white frozen nappies! but they smelled so good
12:24 pm
Atalante

oh dear, i have a vision of people worldwide going round sniffing nappies now
12:24 pm
Haz1558

Isn't it funny the things you treasure. I remember the frozen nappies as well. I stubbornlyrefused to give in to disposables so remember the whole thing.
12:25 pm
Tinascratch2

Howdy, all. Huge one today! Stuck on the ak's - clue pls?
12:25 pm
Haz1558

Clean nappies, Atalante, clean ones.
12:25 pm
flosey

they weren't around for me but my grandson had them
12:25 pm
Haz1558

ak5/18 - a plus a reworking of the eager mustard word.
12:26 pm
Haz1558

Then plural for ak6/30
12:26 pm
Atalante

thank goodness for that!
12:26 pm
Haz1558

Disposables may be convenient, but who'll be reminiscing about them in 20 year's time?
12:27 pm
Tinascratch2

Eager mustard? Hmmm. Gonna turn it over in my brain for while - thx Haz
12:27 pm
Scarlet

The landfills, Haz...the breakdown time for the plastics is inestimal.
12:27 pm
Haz1558

It's a word beginning with k, associated with mustard (at least in Britain) and meaning eager.
12:28 pm
Haz1558

That's what I fear, Scarlet. They're going to be around for ever.
12:29 pm
Scarlet

Finally, there are some entire cities which have banned the use of plastic grocery bags; eliminated the use of styrofoam cups and containers; as well as having eliminated bottled water entirely!
12:29 pm
flosey

agree Haz and Scarlet re landfill - but not for mother-in-law to interfere
12:29 pm
Tinascratch2

Okay, got it - the mustard allusion went by me - must be a British thang :)
12:30 pm
Haz1558

Some stores here are beginning to penalise people for using plastic bags, and plastic bags are banned in the south of Ireland.
12:30 pm
mcr

It's an expression : **** as mustard
12:30 pm
Scarlet

Mothers-in-law must abide by the rule of silence.
12:30 pm
Haz1558

Sorry, Tina - hard to know when things will translate!
12:30 pm
flosey

yes, especially since we have such a great relationship - and have only the one grandchild
12:31 pm
Erda

Plastic bags are recycleable; I've been recycling mine for years
12:31 pm
Scarlet

We will not regret not having intruded with our opinions, flosey... but I have to admit, sometimes I do stew a bit.
12:31 pm
garyandjulie

silence? gosh you never met mine haz lol
12:32 pm
garyandjulie

no I have to admit mines not to bad. I have at least escaped having to go shopping with her. I am a girl who hates to shop
12:32 pm
flosey

oh yes, do that - lol g&j - I had a real dilly
12:32 pm
Scarlet

Likewise, g&j.
12:32 pm
Tinascratch2

That's okay - I'm actually very pleased to know it.
12:32 pm
Atalante

mine is dead. very easy to deal with. but she was very lovely when alive
12:32 pm
flosey

she never once smiled at me!
12:32 pm
Scarlet

How fortunate for you, Atalante.
12:32 pm
Haz1558

I was fortunate in my mother-in-law. She adored her son and reckoned he had to have good taste. I'm so glad!
12:33 pm
EvaNadine

12:33 pm

12:33 pm
Haz1558

Good afternoon, EvaNadine.
12:33 pm
garyandjulie

Gary thinks I am very much like his mother in the way we think alike. Not sure if that is a compliment or not lol
12:34 pm
flosey

either way julie, as long as it works
12:34 pm
Scarlet

Hello, EvaN.
12:34 pm
Haz1558

It was quite funny - she maintained her partiality all through our married life until she died.
12:34 pm
ren8

Hi all
12:34 pm
flosey

12:34 pm
garyandjulie

that was sweet of him flosey
12:35 pm
Haz1558

She was often ill and I used to take flowers to her (arranged) when she was in hospital. Apparently, one of the last times she landed in hospital, she looked around at the flowers and said 'These will pale into insignificance when Hazel brings her flowers'. What a woman!
12:35 pm
flosey

he is a real sweetie julie - but I do believe he used every pot in the house
12:35 pm
Atalante

12:36 pm
Haz1558

Just to sicken your happiness, Atalante, Angelsong got to 63 left on her first sweep.
12:36 pm
garyandjulie

12:36 pm
Haz1558

But get the list. Life's too short.
12:36 pm
EvaNadine

*giggles to self*
im so used to thinking of you as Haz, that i was like "who is Hazel??"
12:36 pm
Atalante

she would!
12:36 pm
Atalante

very sensible, scarlet. I'm just being stubborn
12:36 pm
Haz1558

'Tis I, Eva'
12:37 pm
flosey

I like that name Hazel, we don't hear it anymore
12:37 pm
Scarlet

What a lovely memory, Haz.
12:37 pm
flosey

like Florence - we've old names?
12:37 pm
Haz1558

It's not that common over here, but not so peculiar as to be strange....
12:37 pm
garyandjulie

I saw a check out girl with that name in hobbycraft on Saturday
12:38 pm
garyandjulie

my nan was a florence, used to get annoyed if she got called flo
12:38 pm
Scarlet

My daughter's middle name is Gabriella... I named her for the archangel.
12:38 pm
garyandjulie

it's pretty scarlet
12:38 pm
Haz1558

I like the old-fashioned feminine names - they're definitely making a comeback.
12:38 pm
EvaNadine

My one grandmother was named Elizabeth, but went by Hildy. (not sure where that came from!)
My other grandmother was named Bessie. (but not short for Elizabeth!)
My mom's name is Yvonne, but everyone calls her Liz. (Thank my dad for that one!)
12:38 pm
Scarlet

And, of course, her friends call her Gabi.
12:39 pm
flosey

think I've had just about every way one can call it - grew up with Lolo!! because they couldn't pronounce florence
12:39 pm
Scarlet

Thank you, g&j.
12:39 pm
garyandjulie

my daughter is called Leanne, she either goes by Lily, la la or tink!
12:39 pm
Haz1558

I was just going to say, hopefully she (Gabriella) gets the full name, but it would seem not.
12:39 pm
Scarlet

My little sisters could not say Bobbie, so they called me Baba... now my grandchildren call me that. I love it!
12:40 pm
flosey

I love Leanne
12:40 pm
flosey

12:40 pm
Haz1558

Bye flosey. Nice to see you again.
12:40 pm
Scarlet

:-) Thank you, Tina.
12:40 pm
EvaNadine

i think my parents merely tolerate me calling myself Sam -- but Samantha is such a mouthful!
12:41 pm
garyandjulie

by flosey take care
12:41 pm
Scarlet

Until another time, flosey.
12:41 pm
Tinascratch2

I like old-fashioned names too - my daughter's name is Annabella Jewel
12:41 pm
garyandjulie

I really regretted giving my son 3 names because it's such a mouthful to say all 3 and a surname when he is naughty
12:41 pm
Tinascratch2

bye flosey
12:41 pm
Haz1558

You mean, you're not EvaNadine? We'll have to get used to our real identities!
12:42 pm
Scarlet

Tina, that is a lovely name...
12:42 pm
Tinascratch2

i have instructed my kitchen to clean itself. I'll give it another 15 minutes to do so. :)
12:42 pm
EvaNadine

heh -- Eva Nadine is the name i decided back when i was like 12 that i would name my first daughter...
all these years later, i still love the name Eva! (but have decided to change the Nadine part...)
12:42 pm
Scarlet

*takes off cape and emerald tiara* Okay, Haz, there you go, popping my balloon!
12:42 pm
Haz1558

That sounds like a product that could sell. A self-cleaning kitchen.
12:42 pm
Tinascratch2

Thank you scarlet - we agonized over her name. Mark wanted to name her Annabelle Pepper but I just couldn't deal with it being so cartoon-y
12:43 pm
Haz1558

Can I borrow your emerald tiara, Scarlet? It's my birthstone.
12:43 pm
Scarlet

I heard this morning of a couple who has just welcomed their first child. Being Chicago Cubs' fans, they named the little boy, Wrigley! I laughed so hard.
12:44 pm

12:44 pm
Scarlet

But certainly, Haz. I am stuck with the blue sapphire... I'd much prefer the emerald birthstone.
12:44 pm
EvaNadine

I've pretty much decided that my first-born will either be Eva Marcelle (my dads middle name is Marcel) or Evan Wylie (Wylie is my moms maiden name. just one though, not both.
and the other name i really love is Genevieve, which i later found out was my moms real moms name! (i never met her, since she passed when my mom was about 16)
12:44 pm
Haz1558

Hello saphyre!
12:44 pm
garyandjulie

LOL Scarlet my mate no word of a lie has the last name Murphy and called her soon Paddy.
12:44 pm

You are a blonde, Haz... your coloring will carry it much more richly than mine. *Carefully hands over emerald tiara*
12:45 pm
Scarlet

That's right, Eva. The family's last name is Fields.~!
12:46 pm

12:49 pm

12:49 pm
Haz1558

(Do we send to the penalty box when it's a capitalized word?)
12:50 pm
Atalante

12:50 pm
Scarlet

Seriously: the most 'wait a minute' name I ever heard is Gajda Heinie. True.
12:50 pm
Tinascratch2

I also know a girl named Caprice Capri, not as bad as James James
12:50 pm
EvaNadine

*LMAO*

12:50 pm
Haz1558

I thought so, just didn't want to be too harsh without considering other points of view.
12:51 pm
Tinascratch2

Heehee - Gajda Heinie. There is a woman on my mama's board whose grandmother's name was (drum roll):

Scarlet

I still have four eight-letter words to find, and my monkeys have been wonderful today, to say nothing of great clues along the way!
3:27 pm
Scarlet

We are of a kind, Aloy... I have never enjoyed it and probably never will... even food shopping, and I love to cook.
3:28 pm
