Nearly 3 but hes the autistic one bless him - he just seems to love the way the piddle vanishes - Ive got a lock for the computer cupboard, but if I forget and go pee thinking he is asleep - little toad catches me every time LOL
1:41 am
dcseain

granadan, in that case, unplug them from the computer, that will avoud shorting, and you can rinse them out to avoid crystalization, but allow to dry very well before using again.
1:41 am
granadan

Ill try that dc next time
1:41 am
sprite

lol gran, if that fascinates him so much, perhaps you can let him have an old one?
1:41 am
granadan

I get ireless ones for that reason
1:41 am
dcseain

or train him to absobant pads on the floor?
1:41 am
dcseain

good plan
1:42 am
granadan

he gets all the old ones, but he misses the full on experience then of mummy going purple and sulking till she can get back online!
1:42 am
diem

Mari you out there?
1:42 am
sprite

only too true, gran, LOL.
1:43 am
dcseain

true, though you may be able to retrain by not reacting as strongly, and always having a backup for yourself.
1:43 am
granadan

LMAO dc - his absorbant pad seems to be called my carpet! Oh dont get me wron, we adore ther little chap, but he can create bodily fluids quicker than we can catch him and mop them up - I do his nappies up with duct tape everytime, which slows him down a bit
1:44 am
sprite

gran, we don't get you wrong. You sound like the loving parent you are, and it is perfectly fine to joke about the things that are really hard to handle. In fact, I adore you for being able to see the humor of it all.
1:45 am
dcseain

I agree with sprite entirely
1:45 am
jillibus

diem -- sorry I missed your arrival
1:46 am
granadan

LOL - but he really IS funny - he is the best fun you could wsh for - live with him and youll never see things the same again. He inspects anything new with great suspicion form every angle And then stands on his head to see if it looks better form that angle too
1:46 am
sprite

wowwwww gran! More people should do that! He sounds wise :)

3:04 am
doxy1lover

hubby snoring so loud woke me right up
3:05 am
dcseain

make him get a sleep test, a cpap will make your life better, doxy
3:05 am
doxy1lover

it's a good thing you can't hear what I've been hearing
3:05 am
dcseain

fe7/40 anyone?
3:05 am
doxy1lover

I wish he would dc.
3:05 am
doxy1lover

finally figured out the ce7 clue. thanks dc
3:06 am
lynxxx

fe7.40 a chemical compound - sounds somewhat similar to the fe animal
3:06 am
dcseain

ah, ty lynxxx
3:06 am
jillibus

snoring-->apnea is dangerous, I know, sadly.
3:07 am
dcseain

isn't fica that omnipresent offic tree?
3:07 am
Andree

i have to learn to spell the american way, have just wasted ages with od4/5!
3:07 am
sprite

my hubby snores like hell. We sleep apart. Best decision of our lives... kept us together, LOL.
3:07 am
sprite

lol Andree
3:08 am
jillibus

we did too, sprite
3:08 am
sprite

that's ficus, I think, dc
3:08 am
doxy1lover

it's not too bad if I can sleep through it, but went to bed with bad headache, which I still have. the snoring just aggrevates me.
3:08 am
grannyrose

sprite, my MM says my CPAP makes less noise than i do!
3:08 am
sprite

what is a CPAP?
3:09 am
doxy1lover

he has gone on camping trips (father/son outings) and was told the tent walls moved.
3:09 am
grannyrose

continuos positive air pressure
3:09 am
Andree

after some major dental work i snored for a few months, ex hubby never let up, complained to everyone etc, when i pointed out he had been keeping me awake for years he said thats different you are used to it, lol
3:09 am
sprite

I think I need to google that, lol, can't think what that might be
3:09 am
jillibus

lol andree
3:10 am
doxy1lover

it's a machine that is used at night, a mask over their mouth and nose to help keep the airway open
3:10 am
grannyrose

it's a machine which maintains a positive air pressure in the airway, keeps the soft tissue from obstructing
3:10 am
doxy1lover

my mother and sister both have one.
3:10 am
dcseain

many of my friends have them.
3:10 am
jillibus

I wish my hubby had had one. His apnea contributed to his eventual heart failure
3:11 am
dcseain

one has a warm humidfying one that has reverse pressure so she can breath out.
3:11 am
doxy1lover

maybe when we go to Texas after the first of the year, my brother-in-law will give him an apnea test.
3:11 am
sprite

found it. I will let my husband read about it. I am worried he has apneu and does not get the rest he needs, even if he sleeps well.
3:11 am
dcseain

here's hoping, doxy.
3:11 am
jillibus

go for it, sprite
3:11 am
doxy1lover

he helps run a sleep lab.
3:11 am
sprite

breathing out is very important... I see that is a setback with most models.
3:12 am
dcseain

oh, right, sprite. FICA is the federal medical tax. silly me.
3:12 am
sprite

thanks guys, for this great tip :D
3:12 am
dcseain

3:12 am
doxy1lover

thanks for letting me vent for a few minutes.
3:12 am
dcseain

My ear-plugs are nice and soft, advertised as the Best Ear-Plugs In The World. I may just about agree!
3:16 am
doxy1lover

hi hodag
3:17 am
jillibus

I'm lucky -- I have an ear which doesn't hear very well (big hole in eardrum) so if I sleep on my good ear I don't hear mosquitos and Cat's yells are muted.
3:17 am
Andree

no haz , i have not had time to finish a single grid this week and i think they have all been small
3:17 am
Haz1558

But it's two short grids in a row. Where's the concept of value for money?
3:17 am
Andree

ho hodag
3:17 am
jillibus

Hi ho
3:17 am
dcseain

well, it's not like we pay much, haz.
3:17 am
Haz1558

Maybe we need a system of choosing a grid of differing lengths. It would cause meltdown in the chat log, though.
3:18 am
P.J.

hi dcseain,loredana,doxy,Andree& jill, how is every one today?
3:18 am

Haz1558

Should we be charging?
3:39 am
sprite

you should!
But if I do not pay up, you would have to stop delivering... which would mean no more chatting. Hahaha.
3:39 am
lynxxx

really Sprite? I have just had a friend visit who is now living in Belgium and he was saying how well all the Dutch people spoke english
3:39 am
Haz1558

I think we'll just stick to the present arrangement!
3:39 am

3:40 am
dcseain

yes, the dutch are known for their english, sprite.
3:40 am
Haz1558

I thihk you play your part well enough, sprite.
3:40 am
sprite

we all speak english, lynxxx, but there is a big difference between school english and natural english.
3:41 am
Haz1558

I think I prefer school English!
3:41 am
sprite

you taught me so much about colloquial english, about idiom, etc.
3:42 am
sprite

I know what you mean, Haz! So do I, lol. But if I would translate a good Dutch text, it would sound stilted in English. I want to be able to make it sound "natural" to native speakers.
3:43 am
Haz1558

But if I translated a good Dutch text, it would sound.. or if I were to translate a good Dutch text.
3:43 am
dcseain

well, you a have a crew of happy proofreaders at your ready, sprite.
3:44 am
sprite

I'd be delighted if you would, dc! And if you'd want to point out the parts that were awkward or unnatural to you, I'd owe you!
3:44 am
lizmac

Hello. Sprite..I remember shopping in a supermarket in Netherlands, struggling to communicate in Dutch and a shop assistant who couldn't have been more than 15 saying to me "we will speak in English if that is more comfortable for you"....Now THAT's humbling!!
3:44 am
sprite

lol liz! I can see how that might make you feel, but I am sure he was only trying to be helpful.
3:45 am
lynxxx

lol Liz - Hi
3:45 am
dcseain

Unlike here where i live, where if you don't speak Spanish, you can have trouble in shops sometimes.
3:45 am
Haz1558

Language teaching over here is in a sorry state because the educational authorities are so afraid to teach grammar in case it frightens people. They just make it more difficult to learn a language properly.
3:46 am
lizmac

Absolutely. But it led me to ponder on the Brits' lack of language skills.
3:46 am
sprite

oh yes! No way to learn a language properly if you don't have a firm grasp of grammar.
3:46 am
dcseain

i learned a ton about grammar from studying Spanish and Mandarin and American Sign Language.
3:46 am
sprite

omg the man signs as well... dc, you are a marvel!
3:46 am
dcseain

liz, anglophones and francophones are notoriously monolingual in most of the world
3:47 am
dcseain

even in much of Canada, which is obstensibly bilingual.
3:47 am
Haz1558

Despite all the protestations to the contrary, educational standards have dropped. There is no comparison between what I had to know at 18 and what my daughters were examined on at the same stage.
3:47 am

sorry guys and gals. just had 2 nebs in less than an hour, looks like a long night ahead. see you at the flip

oh, i ran into that problem years ago when i worked at a grocery with 95% Spanish-speaking clientele, and 95% English-speaking managemnt.
3:49 am
Haz1558

Taking a break.... back later.
3:49 am
dcseain

i was the 1st bilingual manager there. Customer relations got better after that, in part because they promoted more spanish-speakers then.

no, i was a bit surprised, as to me, that's a 'normal' thing to do.

my peer on my shift/team has been on nights for 2 years.
4:59 am

must have a partner he needs to get away from !!!
4:59 am
dcseain

partially because he knows what he's doing, partially because he doesn't always follow policy precisely.
4:59 am
lynxxx

or he likes the money? do you get penalty rates of some sort
5:00 am
dcseain

no, he's getting married in January. She lives in Vancouver, BC, and he's been doing wedding planning.
5:00 am
dcseain

no, we're both flat hourly rate regardless time or hours worked. A genrous rate, at that.
5:01 am
dcseain

generouse enough to leave many of us wondering why this helpdesk pays so much
5:02 am
lynxxx

possibly because they had a high turnover of staff?
5:02 am
dcseain

possibly. i know that i earn more than my primary supervisor.
5:03 am
lynxxx

!! does he/she know what 'their' staff are paid?
5:04 am
dcseain

yes, it's a gov't contract, so it's public info
5:05 am
dcseain

and she handles the billing; i'm a sub contractor to the primary, for whom she works.
5:08 am
lynxxx

well I'm glad you found babble anyway...it wil help fill in some of the quiet times...even reading books gets a bit boring. Nothing worse than a boring job - especially when you are tied to a desk. I think I always enjoyed a full-one job despite the pressures

6:33 am
Atalante

do you think its better in a CV to have a reference that knows me currently at work (but the work isn't relevant to the application), or someone I worked with a few years ago (but their subject is more relevant)
6:34 am
lideola

the more relevant reference
6:34 am
72 Temple Owl

can't have more than one?
6:34 am
lideola

i read an article that said "keep it short and sweet only put in relevant info"\
6:34 am
Atalante

I thought so too, but I just wondered if it would look weird not having a reference from current job
6:35 am
Kallia

have they only asked for 1 ref?
6:35 am
Atalante

well, I need 2, but one is already sorted and wonderful and is utterly relevant and perfect. am trying to decide who to use for the other!
6:35 am
lideola

i would list the current job on the CV, but put a reference that was inline with the position you are interested in
6:35 am
Anne38

hi everyone xxxx clue for af 5/16 please
6:35 am
72 Temple Owl

but i think refs yo need more than one. think of it from the employer's side
6:35 am

most employers look for 2 referees and usually expect one of them to be from your current or most recent employer.

from an HR point of view the relevant one is good, but if I was lokking at the CV I would need more than a ref a few years old
6:36 am
Anne38

just got it daaaaaaaaaaa
6:36 am
Ragalla

when applying by CV if space is tight its acceptable to put 'references avaialable on request'
6:36 am
Atalante

exactly .... I'm torn! I have to put 2. They insist, and have a little box that needs filling in
6:36 am

yes that works too Rag
6:36 am

well, the perfect one, is that current or older?
6:36 am

Oh bless you toadette! Just read your profile. My hubby was in Iraq with the first flotilla of ships (the Ark Royal) when the invasion happened. We had only been together a few months but knew it was meant to be. He came home after 7 months and funnily enough I fell pregnant almost straight away!! Good luck with your little one - do you know what you are having?

he was suppose to come home on R&R in Feb. But we recently were moved to a different section of the regiment and he was told he has to go on R&R (leave) earlier, so it'll be November. Then we have to go a whole year without each other. It would have been better in Feb, Because he could have interacted with Simon more, as Simon will be 4 months. But we will make it work as we have no other choice

thanks Denny
8:02 am
toadandtoadette

that's German doctors for you. All my ultrasounds are that good. I've gotten one every visit, unlike in the states.
8:02 am
Denny

That's so true Toadette - I often get asked how I cope but you just put your head down and do it. Are you on a base? Hopefully there is a good support network there?
8:03 am
Ogdens Nut

Why is that Ata - does Inara feature "prominently"?
8:04 am
toadandtoadette

no, I don't live on base, but we are moving to a new house in November, and then I will be in the base community (even though it will still be off post) right now we are renting from a German.
8:04 am
Atalante

she has a particularly interesting client. and you see them quite prominently, yes ;)
8:04 am
toadandtoadette

since all of us are going through the same thing we are all getting pretty close
8:05 am
Ogdens Nut

Marvellous, I look forward to seeing them prominently
8:05 am
Atalante

oh you will LOL
8:06 am
Atalante

but ep 8 is *fabulous*. just a really good episode
8:06 am
Denny

Glad you've got a good network. We don't live on base or anywhere near one and so don't really know anyone else in a similar position. Naval bases are not very good over here!! I found babble to be a god send int he early days!! Kept me sane
8:07 am
Atalante

and when you've finished the series, watch the gag reel. and then watch "Serenity" and screech at the lack of continuity
8:07 am
EvaNadine

Ata -- for a moment there, i thought you were referring to an EP8 in the grid! then i noticed there are no 8s...lol
8:07 am
Atalante

and no P LOL
8:07 am
Ogdens Nut

Oh by the way, did I tell you that if my newcoming cat is female, I am going to call it Inara - so I can stroke Inara all day and hear her purr.....
8:07 am
EvaNadine

yes, that too. ;)
8:08 am
toadandtoadette

I was that way during our last deployment. since we had just gotten married, I stayed in Oregon while he commuted on weekends back from Ft. Lewis. That way I was around family was gone. But again, no one understood either
8:08 am

8:13 am
Denny

Michael has been a *weekend husband* ever since I've know him! At the moment he is based in Plymouth but we live in Nottinghamshire. Before that he was in Bath and before that Scotland. He only has just over 4 years left to do. We've both agreed that whatever job he does when he leaves, he has to work away at least 2 nights a week - just so we don't kill each other!!!
8:13 am
Denny

Hi mrp - how are you?
8:14 am
Atalante

Maybe I should just stick with Vera LOL
8:15 am
toadandtoadette

I totally understand Denny. My husband is a medic and wants to work in an ER, so we won't have that problem. H

8:15 am
toadandtoadette

This grid is frustrating. erg
8:16 am
Atalante

you havent' met Vera yet?? *grin*
8:16 am
Denny

My problem is getting Michael to decide what he wants to do. He seems to think 4 years is a long time - until I tell him we've been together nearly 5!!!
8:17 am
toadandtoadette

8:17 am
Ogdens Nut

8:33 am
Ogdens Nut

Nice floor!!
8:33 am
FMitch

Matching dogs to kitchen floors is this some American accessory fad?
8:34 am
Haz1558

If it's good enough for Paris, it's good enough for me. Oh wait, she wouldn't know where the kitchen was.

8:54 am
FMitch

I'm following katies path, If I can't seeit, it doesn't exist.
8:54 am
Haz1558

Yes, let's all pretend.
8:55 am
Haz1558

The fact that some of us show sunsets and dogs for our icons speaks volumes.
8:55 am
montreal13

8:55 am
KatieMcG

i'm with you there Haz, as demonstrated by my kittens!!
8:55 am
Atalante

what does a scorpion say about montreal?
8:55 am
EvaNadine

not too tough on the eyes, are ya, TSM?
;)
8:56 am
EvaNadine

i think TSMs modeling outdoes mine by a LONG shot...heh
8:56 am
montreal13

it just says that some people are better looking then others...
8:57 am
Haz1558

I was going to say - EvaNadine is no stranger to the photographer's studio either.
8:58 am
EvaNadine

hah, i dont think mine came nearly as naturally as TSMs though!
8:58 am
montreal13

in my case, cameras are allergic to ME !
8:58 am
Haz1558

Still, those undressed shots stick long in the memory, Eva.
8:59 am
EvaNadine

hey now, "undressed" is such a harsh term...hehe
8:59 am
EvaNadine

i was TOTALLY wearing stuff!
8:59 am
Haz1558

Scantily clad?
8:59 am
Haz1558

Clothing challenged?
8:59 am
montreal13

wearing jewels and stuff ??
8:59 am
EvaNadine

hehe, thats a little better!
9:00 am
EvaNadine

;)
9:00 am
Haz1558

See, now montreal is getting interested...
9:00 am
EvaNadine

9:00 am
FMitch

Most elegantly done a'la pin up style... oops you already ssaid that.
9:00 am
montreal13

9:01 am
FMitch

Weel known fact that certain babblers babble au naturelle
9:01 am
montreal13

REALLY ???!!!
9:02 am
Haz1558

You poor innocent, montreal. You didn't know, did you?
9:02 am
FMitch

C'mon EvaN, dig out the pics for us:)

LOL not That woke montreal up
9:02 am
montreal13

had no clue hazel...
9:02 am
EvaNadine

ok, so if the grid accepts UN6 (the person who will UN4 something) and it has RE4, why doesnt it accept RE6 (the person who will RE4 something)?

not that im trying to change the subject. ;)
9:03 am
Haz1558

Someone who will re4 something is just either interfering or obsessive. And we see your schemes a mile off, Eva.
9:04 am
EvaNadine

*rocks back and forth on toes and heels, whistling*
i dunno whatcha mean, haz!
9:04 am
montreal13

we see your scheme even from here in montreal eva...
9:04 am
FMitch

Yea, but we don't see the lovely pics!
9:05 am
EvaNadine

scheme? what scheme?
*inches toward the door, nonchalantly*
9:05 am
montreal13

am with you a thousand % FM...
9:05 am
FMitch

Shhh montreal, you are scaring EvaN
9:05 am
hurshy

ata dear - in "name that proper noun", the proper nouns can be found in the grid.
9:06 am
Haz1558

Eva's fellow-workers are probably phoning up someone for help. Anybody whistling, backing out while rocking on their heels needs sorting out.
9:06 am
EvaNadine

nah, my cube-neighbor is a brit + we all know you lot are a tad off anyway...
9:07 am
FMitch

Surprised she has fallen over herself.
*Waves at fellow Brit*

9:08 am
Haz1558

I suppose life models could conceivably be working and babbling.
9:08 am
Atalante

but but hobbit is the importantest hobbit!
9:08 am
Haz1558

de7 - last French, or add a consonant to the thickness of your pantyhose.
9:09 am
hurshy

ok but i thought you would enjoy getting to name the hobbit in the grid, lol
9:09 am

9:11 am
FMitch

Not sure my brain is programmed to find words on a Friday afternoon.
9:12 am
EvaNadine

more than you know, haz -- dont remind me!
heh
9:12 am
FMitch

Haz with the winter months looming nude babbling is going to be replaced with "Guess How Many Layers I am Wearing"?
9:13 am
Haz1558

I hear you, FMitch!
9:13 am
montreal13

9:13 am

9:28 am

I know, FMitch, it's a quandary for you.
9:32 am
montreal13

I wax poetic whenever faced with beauty: it reminds me of an old George Harrison song as it goes something like this: And because of all their tears, their eyes can't hope to see, the beauty
9:32 am
hurshy

fity cent? no?
9:32 am
montreal13

beauty that surrounds them...
9:33 am

Only teasing. You can't be all bad, you're a babbler.
9:37 am
Scarlet

Excellent!! :-) Will look as soon as I make some inroads on this grid... I want rodeo and several other phantoms today... but... not so easy!

homer simpson, mmm, do5/14

do5/14 - shortened version of fatty bun type thing.
9:38 am

oh, allright hazel..
9:39 am
Scarlet

So elementary, Haz. Thank you!
9:39 am
Haz1558

You're welcome!

9:40 am
hurshy

good job ata! :)
9:40 am
Haz1558

Well done, Atalante! And you have left it where the pets can't sample?
9:40 am
ToeSockMonkey

thank you for the simpson clue
9:40 am
EvaNadine

*cozies up to Ata*
9:40 am
FMitch

I found that too Scarlet but once you fight through the barrier of phantoms it's pretty fast.
9:40 am
ToeSockMonkey

lol
9:40 am
Haz1558

There are 5 un words.
9:40 am
Atalante

hobbit's already had a mouthful LOL
9:41 am
Haz1558

Oh dear!
9:41 am
hurshy

ty haz
9:41 am
montreal13

and undressed isn't one of them ... lol
9:41 am
Atalante

but I did *give* it to her :) She's just small enough not to be able to get to the countertops, luckily
9:41 am
debjed

your icon is kinda creepy montreal :)
9:41 am
Scarlet

Thank you, FMitch... I shall continue at mach speed.. not!
9:42 am
ToeSockMonkey

waiiiiit a a second - what is this undressing talke *raises a brow* Hmmmmm? ;)
9:42 am
Haz1558

THat's not so bad, Atalante.
9:42 am
montreal13

you really think so deb ?
9:42 am
EvaNadine

i think YOU started it, TSM!
9:42 am
Atalante

can Spangle? I think springers can and cockers can't
9:42 am
Haz1558

Oh, you haven't heard about Eva's little problem in that direction.
9:42 am
FMitch

lol montreal, passes cup of tea with bromide to montreal.
9:42 am
montreal13

yes TSM and someone said there wer 5 UN words...
9:42 am
EvaNadine

problem? me? nah...
9:42 am
Scarlet

? Now I am intrigued, Haz and FMitch...
9:43 am
Haz1558

Spangle hasn't ever tried to climb up on the kitchen counter. And I don't think she could spring that high.
9:43 am
montreal13

drinking tea with bromide...
9:43 am
debjed

yep. but if you like it that's wonderful
9:43 am
Atalante

also lucky then :) my sister's springer can ...
9:43 am
Scarlet

Is that why they are called "Springers"?
9:43 am
montreal13

i like it but, if you find it creepy, i'll change it deb
9:44 am
Haz1558

Oh, Scarlet, she's SUCH a worry to us. It all started with photographs for her boyfriend for Valentine's Day and after that there was no stopping her. AC problems in the summer just made matters worse.
9:44 am
Haz1558

If she gets to work clothed at all, it's a mercy.
9:44 am
hurshy

which bromide? "a stitch in time saves nine"?
9:44 am
EvaNadine

rut roh -- i smell an intervention in the air!
9:44 am
FMitch

and not so much a s vest in sight!! I ask you!
9:44 am
montreal13

lol haz
9:44 am
Scarlet

Oh, yes... I saw Eva's rather "sensual" photograph... but oh my! Goose bumps do take the edge off...
9:45 am
montreal13

it's scandalous i tell you !!!
9:45 am
Haz1558

No use playing 'Guess how many layers I am wearing' with Eva.
9:45 am
hetty

Haz, we once had a siamese cat and a dachsie who collabirated in stealing food from the kitchen counter. The way they did it was a hoot.
9:45 am
EvaNadine

PLENTY come wintertime!
we are not creatures fond of a chill!
9:45 am
Vicuna

Old 45 records are practically useless for purposes of decency.
9:45 am
Haz1558

Hello hetty! Teamwork amongst animals for food?
9:45 am
FMitch

There there montreal, the bromide will settle you down.
9:46 am
Scarlet

LOL... the game should be, "Which Frederick's of Hollywood design is she really wearing behind the cyber window?"
9:46 am
Scarlet

Very funny, hetty, and good morning to you!
9:46 am
montreal13

eyelids drooping... muscles slackening...
9:46 am
EvaNadine

*pouts, bottom lip out as far as possible*
9:46 am
Haz1558

montreal probably doesn't know about your tiara and evening dress either, Scarlet.
9:47 am
Scarlet

I try to keep a low profile, Haz...
9:47 am
hurshy

bother, i am so hopeless at the ends of grids
9:47 am
FMitch

Oops, Haz, think I might have dosed monreal a little too much.
9:47 am
EvaNadine

one little photo shoot, and now im the Babble Trollup
9:47 am
Haz1558

Did you not read the directions on the label?
9:47 am
hetty

Yes. The dog couldn't spring up as the cat coulkd. So he went and "told" the cat there was a turkey carcase on the counter (I was on the phone and saw it all from the hallway) so the cat sprang and bapped it onto the floor where the dog waited.
9:47 am
Scarlet

Poor montreal... quick! The smelling salts! We don't often entertain men with the vapors!
9:48 am
hurshy

trollop
9:48 am
Scarlet

Hardly, Eva... I said "sensual" not slutty! :-)
9:48 am
FMitch

I gave him bromide Scarlet.
9:48 am
montreal13

what TIARA !, what evening dress !! - (while waking up from deep slumber)
9:48 am
Haz1558

Great artists have always suffered for their art, Eva.
9:48 am
Scarlet

Poor creature, FM... he will prevail!
9:48 am
Atalante

refresh for a new pic :)
9:49 am
Vicuna

Oh. That explains me, then. Not enough sufferring. Bllgh.
9:49 am
EvaNadine

but im not the artist, just the muse!
heh
9:49 am
Haz1558

Poor montreal - you have so much to learn about our habits.
9:49 am
Scarlet

LOL, EvaN!
9:50 am
montreal13

yea hazel, am like a babe in the woods with you guys...
9:50 am
Haz1558

Is Hobbit hiding?
9:50 am
Scarlet

Yeah, we guyses are relentless sometimes, montreal...LOL
9:50 am
EvaNadine

we dont get many men-folk round these here parts, Mr. Montreal...
9:50 am
Atalante

she's sitting under my desk, head on my white trousers, eyeing the empty plate from banan bread
9:50 am
FMitch

I don't think that make up we put on montreal when he was asleep suits him, wrong colours.
9:50 am
montreal13

will change my icon for deb - brb
9:50 am
Haz1558

Still, it's very brave of you to chat with us. Most men seem to steer clear and find words, silently, remorselessly.
9:51 am
Scarlet

I DO like the Boy George look, though, FMitch!
9:51 am
Haz1558

And hoping for more where that came from, Atalante?
9:51 am
EvaNadine

thats because TSM was gone for so long...with her beauty gracing us once again, then men are SURE to pour back in!
9:51 am
FMitch

Wonder how NancyBoy is?
9:51 am
Scarlet

Unless they are not interested in stunning women, Eva
9:52 am
EvaNadine

now, now FMitch -- NB wears ladies JEANS, not ladies makeup!
9:52 am
Scarlet

I think NancyBoy would love some cosmetics' hints...
9:52 am
Vicuna

When I need to be a stunning woman, I use a frying pan.
9:52 am
Takuma Sato

9:52 am
Scarlet

Nancy loves eyeliner... his words!
9:52 am
Atalante

oh yes. except she's not getting any more!
9:52 am
EvaNadine

9:53 am
FMitch

He has his own make up
LOL Vi
9:53 am
Scarlet

LOL, Vicuna... good morning to you and to Takuma!
9:53 am
Vicuna

LOL, TS!
9:53 am
montreal13

9:54 am
Vicuna

Heh heh! It's just that I'm too shy and retiring to show off my charms like Eva does.
9:54 am
FMitch

I bet Anj turns up
9:54 am
EvaNadine

it feels like an Anj kinda day. ;)
9:54 am
FMitch

Vi, we all have "charming assets" to be proud of :)
9:54 am
Takuma Sato

uh oh -- is it girls' morning on babble?
9:54 am
Atalante

9:55 am
EvaNadine

Takuma -- TSM is showing off her beauty today. ;)
9:55 am
Scarlet

No, Takuma, and not a whiff of chocolate conversation in sight!
9:55 am
montreal13

aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh...
9:55 am
Vicuna

Lola thinks Anj is a stunning beauty!
9:55 am
Atalante

Lola probably thinks so
9:55 am
FMitch

ROFL
9:55 am
Haz1558

No, Takuma - we're just saying how nice it is to chat with men on babble. I wish more would speak up.

9:59 am

9:59 am
debjed

139
9:59 am
Atalante

you could go to a naturist beach with your family!
9:59 am
Scarlet

We don't know if your family is not equally, er... "unfettered"... EvaN! LOL
10:00 am
Haz1558

Wasn't the Nags Head the pub in Only Fools as well?
10:00 am
Jayde287

thanks!
10:00 am
EvaNadine

there are pictures of my family in my flickr account -- trust me, we do NOT wish to see them "unfettered!"
10:00 am
FMitch

After all that talk I didn't have the nu4. We can blame the grid for todays chat then
10:00 am
Scarlet

LOL, montreal... he's fading, FMitch!
10:01 am
Atalante

most naturists are people you generally wouldn't want to see unfettered!
10:01 am
EvaNadine

FM -- dont forget the MORE NU4 word, NU6!
10:01 am
Scarlet

Hahhahhaa, EvaN!
10:01 am
FMitch

Hands brandy to montreal
10:01 am

10:02 am
debjed

10:02 am
FMitch

Nothing to do with us Haz, nothing at all.
10:03 am
Haz1558

Innocent, always innocent.
10:03 am
EvaNadine

i blame it all on FMitch -- everythings her fault, right?
10:03 am
montreal13

10:03 am
Haz1558

Absolutely.
10:03 am
Atalante

10:03 am
FMitch

Not after September EvaN, I pass the baton to someone else so be careful!!
10:04 am
Haz1558

Scarlet is wearing her tiara. It inspires her and helps keep up standards.
10:04 am
EvaNadine

good thing its still September then!
10:04 am
montreal13

deb, haz's bromide had almost put me to sleep ... but brandy brought me back...
10:04 am
EvaNadine

*places finger on nose, as to indicate that she will NOT be handed the baton for october!*
10:05 am
Haz1558

To whom do you think you will pass the baton, FMitch. Emphasis on THINK.
10:05 am
FMitch

Phone BRB
10:05 am
Scarlet

However, Haz, when my latest picture was taken, I handed it off... my daughter took this one, and loaded it... I do look a bit "squishy", but I promised to post one!
10:05 am
Atalante

FM can pass the baton ... we'll blame her for that too
10:05 am
Haz1558

Ah, blame the phone. An old ploy.
10:05 am
ToeSockMonkey

montreal - a new buggie now? have a thing for them?

10:11 am
FMitch

I'll ask Evanout to put a ballot on babblecast :)
10:11 am
Haz1558

An ou7 is the sort of person who just can't help going that extra mile - with a knife sticking in their back.
10:11 am
Atalante

choice 1: FM, choice 2: FM
10:11 am
Scarlet

hmmmmm....
10:12 am
Scarlet

No third choice, Ata?
10:12 am
Atalante

nope
10:12 am
Haz1558

We could have proportional representation. It wouldn't change a thing. FM to blame.
10:12 am
montreal13

after all of this, i have to take a rest... and possibly a shower (not the warm kind)... bye for now and thx for an interesting "morning" chat

10:14 am
Scarlet

And the lights were left on in the parlor area... FM... you must learn to be more responsible!
10:14 am
Atalante

I'm off for a bit. Hopefully by the time I return, FM will have got rid of the ridiculous baton notion thing!

10:25 am
FMitch

I remember Haz before the found the cooking sherry, such a lovely lady then.
10:25 am

10:25 am
ToeSockMonkey

I am peachy thank you for asking
10:25 am
Haz1558

Well, who left the cooking sherry sitting about?
10:25 am
Takuma Sato

Once, several yrs ago, a group of us went to the Canadian Open Tennis Tournament in Toronto (we are from the Buffalo, NY area) and on our way home I noted that Lake Ontario was on our right and a sign ahead said Quebec. That is when I realized that we were lost. We could have stayed with you except I didn't know you then.

theres logic for you Scrabbler
2:33 pm
Scrabbler

Ewww, spiders and snakes. I like mice and had one for a pet a few yrs ago. We called him Stuart Little.
2:34 pm
lbdawger

i think scrabs you need a gps if you go to toronto again.
2:34 pm
debjed

how cute, scrabbler!! I like to draw mice and squirrels
2:34 pm
Lizsark

my cats bring me plenty of mice Scrabbler
2:35 pm
lbdawger

tree rats! i have a plethora of squirrels in my backyard. they are so much fun to watch
2:35 pm
Lizsark

we dont have any squirrels here :( not much wildlife at all really
2:36 pm
montreal13

the sqirrels here seem to taunt the neighbourhood cats... and get away with it !
2:37 pm
lbdawger

we have black squirrels and grey squirrels here, and in some parts red squirrels. the black is much smaller than the grey but he's a tough little dude.
2:37 pm
Lizsark

the only wild mammals we have here are rats, mice, bats and hedgehogs
2:37 pm
Scrabbler

Well, before I go on a trip I study a map and now there is Mapquest. But I was a passenger in a van full of women that were, and still are, directionally-challenged.
2:37 pm
Lizsark

oh and bunnies
2:37 pm
lbdawger

yeah, our squirrels tease all the critters here. cats. dogs, deer...
2:38 pm
Scrabbler

Mostly we have the little red squirrels--they are so cute. We have some grey ones and infrequently the black-morphs.
2:38 pm
lbdawger

no bunnies, i think the fox, coyotes and other predators get them.
2:39 pm
Lizsark

the red squirrels are endangered in Britain - is it the same over there too Scrab?
2:39 pm
Scrabbler

The squirrels like the buffet that I provide in the squirrel-proof feeders.
2:39 pm
lbdawger

we have raccoons here too, who are being quite the bother of late.
2:39 pm
Scrabbler

No, Liz--lots of the red ones here in the woods.
2:39 pm
Lizsark

I love raccoons
2:40 pm
Scrabbler

The raccoons are quite friendly and fearless--they come up on my front porch every night and I talk to them through the door or window. They just stare at me.
2:40 pm
Lizsark

really Scrab? Isnt that strange? In Jersey (neighbouring island to me) they are breeding reds to protect them from dying out
2:41 pm
lbdawger

i think it depends on the area as to whether a species is endangered. When i lived in Arizona the red squirrel was a protected species
2:41 pm
Lizsark

awww I'm jealous scrabbler. When I was little I loved raccoons so much my parents spent an entire summer trying to find me a cuddly toy one!
2:41 pm
Scrabbler

It is great to be back in Babble Land, put cleaning and chores on hold, and get nothing productive done except chatter and find words.
2:41 pm

hi all
2:41 pm
Scrabbler

Liz, we can send you some red squirrels.
2:41 pm

i just took about a roll of film of my squirrels opening up the pumpkins i have. what a mess they make. very cute. I get to see a lot of wildlife come here to the wildlife clinic. coons, possums, squirrels, bunnies, birds.....
2:41 pm
Scrabbler

Hi doxy!

Debjed you should put them on flickr for us to see
2:42 pm
Scrabbler

Deb--do you run a wildlife clinic?
2:42 pm
Scrabbler

It is funny to see the squirrels inside pumpkins.
2:42 pm
lbdawger

my backyard is a nature conservancy, and it's great to see all the critters down there.
2:43 pm
Scrabbler

Cool, dawger.
2:43 pm
debjed

no. work at the univ. of Illinois vet teaching hospital - small animal clinic. wildlife ward run by student volunteers.
2:43 pm
Scrabbler

My fantasy, when I retire, is to run a Rabbit Rescue Service, then find foster parents and adoptive parents.
2:43 pm
Lizsark

great job Deb!
2:43 pm
doxy1lover

that sounds like fun deb
2:44 pm
Scrabbler

Neat, Deb.
2:44 pm
lbdawger

it really is neat, except the neighbors on the other side of the slough, don't understand that their dogs are not allowed to chase the deer or harrase the birds.
2:44 pm
Scrabbler

Some people are idiots, dawger.
2:45 pm
lbdawger

Deb, that sounds like a wonderful job!
2:45 pm
Lizsark

I wouldnt dream of letting my dog chase deer! good grief!
2:45 pm
lbdawger

scrabs, that's why we call that part of the "hood" dogpatch.
2:45 pm
Dachef

Frodo isnt accepted anymore. Does that mean hes failed?
2:46 pm
Lizsark

Funny how this game has attracted so many animal lovers!
2:46 pm
lbdawger

well, it is illegal, and if we were really mean nasty people, we could shoot the dogs, but that would totally devistate me. I'd rather shoot their owners
2:46 pm
Lizsark

absolutely lbd! its the owners to blame not the poor dogs who've not been taught any better
2:46 pm
Scrabbler

I have to walk to the mail center now. I made a sign to post, with used snowboarding equipment for sale. It is stuff that my nephews have outgrown.
2:47 pm
Scrabbler

Hi dachef
2:47 pm
Lizsark

If we ever had any snow over here I'd make you an offer Scrab! LOL
2:47 pm

2:52 pm
montreal13

2:52 pm

"ooblockhead you havent done the dishes again" sounds familiar. Or "ooblockhead, you're not playing that bloody stupid game again are you?"

3:09 pm
Atalante

By Nut?? why???!! *looks round suspiciously*
3:09 pm
evanonut

ahem . . .
3:09 pm
Atalante

oh definitely! except when she's not
3:09 pm

Because of what you said, Atalante. Three letters, two of them vowels.

3:11 pm

3:11 pm
evanonut

*looks around for a nice steaming pile* - ah poo, all i have is old dried up piles.
3:11 pm
Atalante

haz, I think you need to introduce Spangle to Zen to show him that she does actually show some enthusiasm every now and then
3:11 pm
lideola

to measure something again or resize
3:12 pm
Atalante

LOL
3:12 pm

3:12 pm

we watch where we walk here, especially in large animal clinic - lots of horse poo
3:12 pm

Dear oh dear, is that what girls talk about ?
3:12 pm

I have.
3:14 pm
Ogdens Nut

Spangle is looking quite depressed at the moment; what have you been doing to her, Haz ?
3:14 pm
Haz1558

Click again, Zen.
3:14 pm
Atalante

beating her twice a day, probably
3:15 pm
Haz1558

I'm just looking back at the chat log and have come across the news that you're to get a cat, Zen. You'll be sure to tell us ALL about her?
3:16 pm
Ogdens Nut

No Ata, not yet; i am practising the delayment of gratification
3:16 pm
Atalante

wow, I'm impressed
3:16 pm
Atalante

yay for happy spangle!
3:16 pm
Haz1558

And I can confirm that there has been no explosion yet, so he is a very controlled man.
3:18 pm
Ogdens Nut

It is true Haz, if it is male, it will be Oedipuss; and if female then I'm calling her Inara
3:18 pm
Haz1558

Whatever the sex, it will no doubt be a Cat of Glory to cause wonderment.
3:19 pm

3:20 pm

Yes, unless the Pigeon of Disaster gets to it

No self-respecting cat would be worried by a pigeon, surely?
3:21 pm

LOL wasn't that a great example?
3:22 pm
Ogdens Nut

Normally so, but the Pigeon of Disaster is not a normal pigeon, haz
3:22 pm
Haz1558

Unbelievable - if I had seen it I'd have been Disgusted of Ballymena.
3:23 pm
Haz1558

Not a normal pigeon. What powers do the feathers conceal, then?

Scrabbler

Yes, I am worried about his navicular fracture, or was it the scaphoid bone?
4:06 pm
stidmama

scaphoid. well the first cast went on this morning, a "long arm cast" that immobilizes from above the elbow to pretty much the tip of the thumb.
4:06 pm
stidmama

I am really hoping that the more obvious fracturing on today's Xrays wasn't due to his teachers letting him run amok at camp this week.
4:07 pm
stidmama

either way, it is now immune to further damage (we hope)
4:07 pm
Scrabbler

We had a kid this week with a scaphoid fracture

4:22 pm
Krista

misdiagnosed as reflux..daughter was misdiagnosed for 9 years. it's (usually) caused by food allergies, but non-iGe mediated ones (don't cause immediate reaction)..we **think** her trigger is dairy...very painful..esophagus erodes
4:22 pm
stidmama

thanks haz! worked first time again.
4:23 pm
Haz1558

Good to know, stidmama!
4:23 pm
eieios

i don't get it, haz. sorry, must be the stopped up head....
4:24 pm
stidmama

the problem with allergies is figuring out which triggers cause which symptoms... and when sometimes they are "additive" I can eat squash now that I no longer eat things from cows, but when I was little pumpkin pie made my mouth ulcerate. that was back when no one thought to test for a dairy problem.
4:25 pm
stidmama

I have so many almost words: oofier, nooder (as in more nakedy), frich....
4:25 pm
Haz1558

de7/32 - The density measurement could also be a word for one who says 'I'm innocent' - he would be a de****. Insert a consonant into third position.
4:26 pm
stidmama

well, I need one word to justify hitting the list... the H please?
4:26 pm
Atalante

change the nooder a bit, stid!
4:27 pm
stidmama

LOL thanks atalante... just saw it!
4:27 pm
Krista

yes, Stid, i know what you mean. I feel like we grew up in the dark ages of allergies! Kielen is tough because she had so many false positives on RAST test..showed she was allergic to lettuce, potatoes...so we have to go more by "real world" reactions..
4:27 pm
