oh, enable has some odd ones. Morewords is a Xword tool, and says the ra8 is valid, but i'm guessing an OED will be needed for a definition
2:20 am

Jilli, speaking of bridge, you may find this of interest: http://tinyurl.com/yu5emd
2:58 am
bananafour

it wasn't a bad highway before, you just would get stuck behind all the slow people and no where to pass them....hence accidents when people would take risky chances to pass
2:58 am
sgams

Really, never heard that about Salt Spring. Jilli, have you been to Tofino?...if so the hwy, between Port Alberni and Tofino, is basically the same, windy, curvy, hilly etc
2:58 am

hello, sprite
3:46 am

good morrow, sprite!

HI Sprite. I was trying to get feeling back in my fingers
3:48 am
dcseain

good point babrab, i only just noitced i'm at 5.35, and hav found most of the 4s and 5s.
3:48 am
sprite

BabbleRabble, your profile text is exactly what my physiotherapist told me! Rather recent findings about how trauma affects cortisol levels.
3:49 am
BabbleRabble

good to know
3:49 am
herinfernallady

Hello SPrite
3:49 am
sprite

it is. And it is nice to see that my confidence in what she tells me is supported by other researches as well.
3:49 am

rehi dc, babrab and infernal!
3:51 am
herinfernallady

Fran did you lose the net again
3:51 am
BabbleRabble

aloha, Fran
3:51 am
sprite

it does. The study in the Netherlands has shown that cortisol levels are lower than usual in traumatised persons, but if their panic buttons are pressed (which usually happens too easily), the cortisol production goes skyhigh and does not stop for a very long time, then drops back to too low a level.
3:51 am
sprite

hey Fran :)
3:51 am
FranMag

no, i was doing other things on-line infernal
3:52 am
herinfernallady

Ok. Ill do scrable when i can think
3:52 am

tsk tsk tsk, Fran. ;)
3:52 am
BabbleRabble

do you take a look at the coping rules now and then, sprite?
3:53 am
flosey

very interesting babrab and sprite, have copied the article in your bio babrab, will read later
3:53 am

hullo fran
3:53 am
FranMag

hi flosey! hi again zombee!
3:53 am
flosey

Hi there Fran
3:54 am
Zombee

hahahaha btw how many words do you have now dear flosey
3:54 am
sprite

quite often, actually, BabbleRabble. They help me to keep perspective. I also notice that understanding the mechanism of those panic attacks and in-between fatigue helps me coping with them. I am one that needs to understand before she can accept.
3:54 am
sprite

hi Zombee.
3:54 am
flosey

power was off here Fran, so I went to bed at 5:45 pm - wide awake at 1: after good 7 hour sleep
3:54 am
Zombee

hullo, sprite!
3:54 am
Zombee

man i love your icon. so cute
3:54 am
sprite

woot flosey, that sounds like a good rest! Hope you feel better for it :)
3:54 am
sprite

thanks :D
3:55 am
dcseain

that's true of several people i know sprite, and i think that makes sense. *hug*
3:55 am
herinfernallady

SPrite can i as something. Do panic attacks leave you feeling fatigued and odd feeling?
3:55 am
Zombee

I'll get a good rest when God gives me 6 more hours in a day
3:55 am
Zombee

I'll get a good rest when God gives me 6 more hours in a day
3:55 am
FranMag

wow! that's great flosey!
3:55 am
FranMag

except you
3:55 am
FranMag

except you'll probably fall asleep at around 11 am again. :-)
3:55 am
dcseain

good that you got sleep flosey, and you'll find your way back to a regular schedule soon enough.
3:56 am
sprite

drained and kind of otherworldly, lady. Like being a stranger on this planet. Feeling passes after a while, fatigue lasts longer.
3:56 am
herinfernallady

Ok not cool but that makes sense to me
3:56 am
flosey

may do Fran, but yes, may nap today, but man-o-man I feel great
3:56 am
sprite

poor Zombee... too many interesting things in life to allow yourself enough sleep?
3:56 am
flosey

I seldom get straight 7 hours
3:56 am
BabbleRabble

the massive adrenalin rush is quite tiring
3:57 am
Zombee

my major exams just ended recently...sleep can wait
3:57 am
Zombee

hahaha
3:57 am
dcseain

yeah, school's like that, zombee.
3:57 am
FranMag

flosey, i hear you! I haven't slept undisturbed since my first pregnancy
3:57 am
flosey

Zombee, hope you did well in exams
3:57 am
Zombee

well, the results won't be out till early next year... but thanks flo!
3:58 am
FranMag

man, i remember a week in school when I had a total of 5 hours of sleep over the whole week!
3:58 am
sprite

but at least I finally realise that I am not to blame for having panic attacks. I used to think I was soo stooopid for letting little things make me crazy. But now I know I cannot do anything to stop it, except slowly making the panic buttons less sensitive. Once the mechanism starts, no concious action can stop it.
3:58 am
herinfernallady

Zombee best wishes
3:58 am
sprite

*keeps fingers crossed for Zombee*
3:58 am
Zombee

thanks herin! oh no fran! how did you survive!
3:59 am
dcseain

indeed so, Sprite. I wish i could make my mom understand that.
3:59 am
herinfernallady

Sprite i had a panic attack today thats why i asked. I still feel really freaked out.
3:59 am
Zombee

HAHA sprite!
3:59 am

argh, idiot is a phantom. I hate it when that happens :)
3:59 am
FranMag

sprite, i'm so glad for you, it's good to not feel like you're abnormal (if that makes sense)
3:59 am
FranMag

sprite, that one has been bothering me all night too!
3:59 am

i must say the variation in mobile rings here in the office is fascinating.
4:00 am

4:00 am
Zombee

oops i meant (:
4:00 am
flosey

beautiful icon Fran
4:00 am
sprite

lol, yes it does, Fran. Being able to stop be4ing myself over the head for it makes it less bad.

Lady, sorry to hear that. Best you can do is try and relax, and be gentle with yourself. Panic eats energy like locust eat grainfields... bare to the bone after a visit!
4:01 am
FranMag

zombee, i don't know how i did it either...my biggest presentation of the week was done in a stupor, but i must have been prepared, i answered every question while my "team" members just stood there!!
4:01 am
FranMag

thanks flosey! i think everyone here knows i love purple. :-)
4:01 am
herinfernallady

Oh yes. I have no idea why but i was at the store and wham i am lucky i remembered the breathing methods from yoga
4:01 am
Zombee

haha I usually work with people like that too! I end up answering every single question thrown at us!

gday fishbulb!
4:03 am
Fishbulb

Oooh Fran, pretty icon :D Sprite, lovely to see you as always dcseain, good morning to you too! :D
4:03 am
BabbleRabble

to be able to focus emough during an attack to look around and see that you are not in danger is a large step; to let the phisiology run its course without compounding the anxiety by thinking woulda coulda shoulda what if is a real key to shortening the panic
4:03 am
Fishbulb

gday Zombee!
4:03 am
FranMag

great hat fishbulb! and even better color. :-)
4:03 am
herinfernallady

HI Fish.
4:03 am
herinfernallady

HI Fish.
4:04 am
Zombee

is there anything that can be done to suppress the feeling during a panic attack? like can you distract yourself?
4:04 am
dcseain

finally finished the Ts.
4:04 am
FranMag

go dc go!!!
4:04 am
sprite

So very true, BabbleRabble! Recently, I have been able to go through a panic attack, knowing I am having one and realising the chemical reaction will take its course, and afterwards I know I better take it easy for a bit and not blame myself... such a huge difference.
4:05 am
sprite

woot dc!
4:05 am
Zombee

HAHAHAH!!! "Fishbulb is a human from United Kingdom". Yeah I got that much!
4:05 am
herinfernallady

Babble yep. Zombee i have a plan. I listen to my ipod when i go out. I also know where the exits are in a place
4:05 am
BabbleRabble

what works bets for me it simply go with it and realize you are not in danger
4:05 am
sprite

no, suppression or distraction does not work for me. Just letting it be what it is and staying as calm as possible while it lasts, works better for me.
4:06 am
FranMag

zombee, are you going to go pro so that we'll find out if you're at least human? :-)
4:06 am
Fishbulb

Thanks Fran, wish it was mine Hi lady. Zombee, I think that's the default on the profile page but it made me chuckle so I kept it! I like clarification of my human status sometimes.
4:06 am

Zombees aren't human anymore... they used to be ;)
4:06 am
dcseain

a friend with bridge issues and panic disorder was driving us home once. We crossed the Francis Scott Key bridge in Baltimore, which other passenger insisted was a drawbridge, which she and i knew it wasn't. She was breathing again after crossing the Key, when a sign said "Drawbridge Ahead"
4:06 am

4:07 am

"Drawbridge!? Drawbridge Ahead!? What does that mean?" to which i replied "It means there's a drawbridge, honey", which made her laugh, and happily, it was tiny. :)

4:09 am

lady, I am right with you on that one. December is a bad month for me, with all the Xmas stress and such. But it will be January soon :)
4:09 am
dcseain

She's still no fond of big bridges, but is getting better with them. Eventual goal is to cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, from which one cannot see land for several minutes in the middle.
4:09 am
FranMag

flosey, i'm crossing my fingers for you and jilli.
4:09 am
Zombee

I have never fainted in my life. I've tried, but nope, didn't work

wow, that is kinda heroic, dc. Your company and some humour might well help her make it :)
4:10 am

4:10 am
herinfernallady

DC You can have the bridge on your own thanks
4:10 am
dcseain

it's a 5-mile suspension bridge connecting Annapolis, MD to Kent Island, MD.
4:10 am
herinfernallady

Um no thanks DC
4:11 am
dcseain

someday, Sprite, that is my hope. I've shared with her the experience of having a tire blowout on that bridge, which doesn't help per se, but shows that it was overcome successfully, including driving off the bridge w/out stopping.
4:11 am
Zombee

cannot see land? my butt just tingled
4:11 am
sprite

being alone or lonely are two different things. Feeling lonely and abandoned can be very tough, especially in times like these.
4:11 am
BabbleRabble

I would need to know what violation caused the suspension before crossing that bridge

I tend to go with the nature in the seasons... in winter, I feel like turning inward, concentrating strenght and energy deep inside, waiting for spring to turn it outwards again. But Xmas here is very extrovert nowadays... too commercial, too many obligations, too much humbug.

6:46 am
Scrabbler

Uniquity, are you concerned about privacy and identity theft issues on-line?
6:46 am
bfsog

so, i know my sister-in-law is due with their 3rd baby in January, but i was talking to my mom last night to find out WHEN in january...

not now, Scarlet, but when I drove home from my mom's last nite (an hour on interstate) I was a complete wreck--had to pry my hands off the wheel in my driveway . . . torrential rain and high winds--couldn't see a thing at certain points--was going 20 mph!

Angelsong

do those of you in the US know about Craigs List?
8:47 am
Uneaixoise

ok, this is what i found on urban dictionary website: Charrue is a Québecois expression used to define multiple things, including a big, fat and usually ugly woman.
8:47 am
AsGreen

busted, I'm still here, yes Angel - I've used it
8:47 am

Ohmigosh, Une... I re-coffeed and read your post... what a nightmare! Yes, Angel, folks here use Craig's List for job-hunting.
8:49 am
Uneaixoise

cool, angel! A couple of years ago I was able to connect with a local teacher just starting out at an urban grade school--gave her lots of supplies!
8:49 am
Scarlet

'Bye, asgreen!
8:51 am
Uneaixoise

scarlet, the funny thing is that as I left my mom's house, the caregiver and I were commenting that once the again the weather forecasters got it all wrong--not a drop was falling there!
8:51 am
Scarlet

As usual, Une... I can drive on ice, snow and dreck... even fog... but winds are another breed of trouble.

Last winter, we had such a bad windstorm that it blew our 200-pound outdoor grill right over! Thank goodness for good neighbors... one lady was so shaken... a huge tree missed her car by mere inches.. the electric company had to come by to break the tree down in increments so the branches wouldn't interfere with the current.

i assumed it was an altitude thing in Blowing Rock but Asheville's not that high, right?

Well, Blowing Rock is several hundred feet higher in elevation than Asheville, but we DO get some doozies...

At this moment, all is calm and the sun is smiling... so, into the grid before I lose I-net service!! :-)

9:12 am
bfsog

9:13 am
bfsog

ut i want to just get a refund and buy it elsewhere!
9:13 am
Scarlet

At least you started early enough to anticipate foul-ups, bfs... so you're really ahead of the last-minute crunch...
9:13 am

I just don't shop on-line... I also stay away from the insanity of Black Friday and Cyber Monday as though they are the plague... LOL

Me either... yet another marketing ploy that everyone buys into... not moi! :9
9:31 am
Scarlet

Must check emails... see you in a few! (With 70 left!)
9:32 am
EvaNadine

bfs -- Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, where all the stores put on *insane* sales in preparation for the Christmas holiday...
the sales are usually one-day only and very good, so people go nuts and start camping out in front of stores + in short, its just very chaotic.
you hear stories of people getting trampled + even dying on Black Friday...
9:33 am
bfsog

and is that why the stock market like went boom ?
9:34 am
EvaNadine

i think youre thinking of the Great Depression -- different events
9:35 am

i dont know, i wiki'd it and it was telling me about the dow jones index losing 502 points

9:37 am

10:45 am
Haz1558

I bet Atalante's will feature Hobbit's purple collar.
10:46 am
Haz1558

I can't make up my mind, montreal! Sitting on the fence.
10:46 am
montreal13

the one that captures satellite transmissions ??
10:46 am
Haz1558

No, just the purple collar from the States. It's strictly for appearance.
10:47 am
montreal13

i hear you hazel - picked orange but i really don't have a favourite colour per say...
10:47 am
Atalante

back with my favourite coluor :)
10:48 am
Haz1558

It's a nice deep orange. Right, let's see if I was correct.
10:48 am
Atalante

though hobbit's collar would do!
10:48 am
Haz1558

You see!
10:48 am
montreal13

Good afternoon EvaNadine.
10:50 am
montreal13

hi there Eva !
10:51 am
EvaNadine

interesting BF-job news...
while he hasnt yet heard about the job he had the 2nd interview for last week, he just got a call today from a place he applied to -- they did a phone interview today + he has an in-office interview on friday.
always nice to have a backup!
10:51 am
Haz1558

That sounds great!
10:51 am
montreal13

good news Eva !
10:52 am
EvaNadine

he even told them that hes waiting to hear about another job, and they were still interested...
this one isnt a federal job though (like the one hes waiting on), but it is temp-to-hire, which is a good option...
10:52 am
Atalante

yay Eva!
10:53 am
Haz1558

I hope it works out well for him.
10:53 am
EvaNadine

considering i had my minor "im so stressed trying to keep everything together and make it all work" yesterday, this is definitely good news...heh
10:54 am
Atalante

if Spangle is your favourite colour - is that the white or the red?
10:54 am
montreal13

things usually work out Eva...
10:55 am
Haz1558

It would be the rusty red, Atalante. I like autumny colours - they suit me, maybe that's why.
10:55 am
EvaNadine

yeah. i was just getting a little worried that id have to tailor back my christmas shopping this year, and it had me a little depressed...
but then i realized i already had MOST of my shopping done...heh
10:56 am
Haz1558

Well there you are - you can relax a bit.
10:56 am
montreal13

and with BF getting a new job, there could even me more shopping in sight !

11:05 am
Haz1558

Could it be a flapknack - a handy foldable bag?
11:05 am
Haz1558

But you wouldn't eat a bag. Unless it was for emergency rations.
11:05 am
montreal13

no no ... must be flapjack...
11:06 am
Haz1558

Flap Jack - the easily distressed brother of Jill.

11:16 am
crpw48

11:17 am
Haz1558

11:18 am
FMitch

Have you completed the grid Haz?
11:19 am
Haz1558

Yes, it's a nice one today.
11:19 am
FMitch

Oh congrats to you, seem to be a lot more larger words than usual.
11:19 am
Atalante

hmmm. I have to go downstairs. But both brats are fast asleep here. They will jump up and follow me like the Pied Piper and then fuss around for 1/2 an hour before sleeping again. Annoyance
11:20 am
Haz1558

Yes, lots of those who do and comparatives.
11:20 am
FMitch

Ata I am worried about you?
11:20 am
Haz1558

If you crawl on your stomach, very quietly?
11:20 am
Atalante

you are?
11:21 am
FMitch

You are sounding remarkably like a particular antipodean.
11:21 am
Atalante

the quiet thing works with Hobbit. not SIlverclaw. Maybe just absolute speed will work *whoosh*
11:21 am
Haz1558

Can you go fast and quietly, though? Not knocking anything over either.
11:22 am
Atalante

I tried. They both followed me LOL
11:22 am
Haz1558

Is it devotion or nosiness on their part, Atalante?
11:22 am
FMitch

They just wanted to supervise and make sure they were not missing out on a food opportunity I guess.
11:22 am
Atalante

welll someone's got to provide the amusement, FM :P
11:23 am
Atalante

Devotion, obviously *smug*
11:23 am
crpw48

can't get the gum clue or the french father clue haz
11:23 am
crpw48

can i have another one
11:24 am
Haz1558

Okay, the first four letters are the same (but rearranged) as a word meaning to look intently, or a member of the nobility, or one who urinates (sorry!) The last two letters are then vowels.
11:24 am
crpw48

just got it
11:24 am
Haz1558

Well done!
11:25 am

When you say the Secret Project, Atalante, do you just mouth the words, rather then speak them out, a la Les Dawson?
11:31 am
Atalante

11:31 am
caitlyn

11:36 am
sprite

debjed, you lost. It starts de. And it is supposed to keep you from something.
11:36 am
Haz1558

It doesn't start with re - it's de, and is designed to stop you doing something for fear of the consequences.
11:36 am
Frances

Should we keep ears to the ground Ata?
11:36 am
sprite

snap, Haz
11:37 am
Haz1558

I know - let's hope she's on the same wavelength!

It's a while since I saw her live so to speak

Do you think that's why she no longer does the chocolate orange ad?
11:38 am
sprite

you guys are terrible! Poor Dawn!
11:38 am
caitlyn

Oh she really has put loads more on..it cant be healthy for her
11:38 am
Haz1558

You're right - she is bigger.
11:38 am

11:40 am

good girl, Ata :P
11:40 am
caitlyn

And a lovely face
11:40 am
FMitch

yup, love the colour.
11:40 am
Haz1558

She always claims to not be bothered by her weight, but she looks as though it's going to be more of an effort to move around etc.
11:41 am
caitlyn

Of her face??LOL
11:41 am
Atalante

she is still very pretty. and there's not being bothered by the fact of weight, and being bothered by the effects of it
11:42 am
sprite

if she gets really big, it will be in her way a lot, I know. I can tell when I lose a couple of kilos, I can lie easier in bed and turn around and such.
11:42 am
Haz1558

ch1212

Oh gosh, thanks (blush). Right now it's below shoulder length, and I was just never a girly-girl -- I don't even own a curling iron or hair dryer. So I need simple :)
11:59 am
FMitch

Ata he is about yr age
12:00 pm
caitlyn

LOL
12:00 pm
Atalante

thank goodness I dont look as "worn" as he does!
12:00 pm
Denny

that looks like a perfect fingure drying style - and very flattering
12:00 pm
Atalante

he's 2 years older than me!!
12:00 pm
Denny

ooops sorry about the spelling!
12:00 pm
FMitch

ch1212 the blonde suited you better and no glasses. Hmm ponders should I get rid of glasses?
12:00 pm
ch1212

Denny, just read your profile -- adorable, precious looking children!! And we have the same tastes in programmes :)
12:01 pm
ch1212

Ours is 32 years old now, so you're lucky to still have them little.
12:01 pm

ok... who's missed me?
12:01 pm

and if you didn't... please lie. =)
12:01 pm

12:02 pm

Hey red where ya been?!?!?
12:02 pm

Hi red long time no see
12:02 pm
redshoes

hmmm...didn't type that second post fast enough... did I ata?
12:02 pm
Denny

thanks ch1212, thought they're both a little poorly at the moment. Sean went straight to bed when he got back from playgroup at 3.45 and he is still there!! loves his sleep!
12:02 pm
Takuma Sato

hiya red
12:02 pm
Atalante

LOL ok, missed you really
12:02 pm
redshoes

I was on holiday for a week and then slammed when I got back to work. =)
12:03 pm
FMitch

Hi Takuma
12:03 pm
ch1212

oh... I work at a church, and we sponsor a children's play group twice a week, so the little ones peek into my office from time to time. I'm a frustrated grandma!
12:03 pm
redshoes

and I couldn't get a decent signal all weekend at home. Trust me... I tried. =) Missed my babbling!
12:03 pm
Denny

i'm really looking forward to the new series of battlestar galactica starting - hopefully in the new year. have you seen Men in Trees?
12:03 pm
Takuma Sato

hiya mitch
12:04 pm
redshoes

anything new I should know about around here?
12:04 pm
Takuma Sato

could someone offer a clue for the non-mammalian 'O' word starting from the top 'O''?
12:04 pm
ch1212

I haven't yet -- it's on at the same time as a program my beloved husband enjoys watching, and since he is so good about watching Grey's Anatomy with me, I try to indulge him too
12:04 pm
ch1212

takuma, change the second vowel on the mammal
12:05 pm
redshoes

I heart Grey's!
12:05 pm
Takuma Sato

thanks ch. huh -- that's a new one to me
12:05 pm
ch1212

Only 2 more 'new' episodes left unless they resolve the writer's strike
12:05 pm
Denny

it's eally good - I have been pleasantly surprised - altho anne heche's voice grates a little - but there are some lurverly men up there in Elmo Alaska!!
12:06 pm
redshoes

and, once again, I lobby for "dern" to be a word.
12:06 pm
Takuma Sato

I use that one all the time, red
12:06 pm
Denny

are you seeing the new series of Grey's anatomy at the moment? with the new interns?
12:06 pm
ch1212

The premise kind of reminded me of Northern Exposure (if you remember that show), and it looked promising.
12:06 pm
Takuma Sato

thankfully this grid will not give me the chance to Charlie-Brownedly try 'thar' again
12:06 pm
redshoes

Ch-- I have a friend who's a writer but not in the union... she says the strike is really just making people mad. =(
12:07 pm
ch1212

Oh yes, we tune into Grey's every week. I'm glad they are continuing the storyline of "Ava"
12:07 pm
redshoes

"thar she blows!" "dern it!"
12:07 pm
Denny

i never watched northern exposure (too young i think!). Who was Ava?
12:07 pm
Takuma Sato

I have a friend who writes for TV, so I've been getting the other side ;)
12:08 pm
ch1212

Ava in Grey's Anatomy -- last season she was the patient with amnesia who fell in love with that one intern, and at the end of the season her husband came to fetch her. This season she has returned for a couple episodes.
12:08 pm
ch1212

Ah, any hint of a solution yet Takuma?
12:08 pm
redshoes

I bet Takuma. There's always two sides, aren't there?
12:09 pm
Denny

oh yes I remember - fell for Alex, whose character I really warmed too in the end. My favourite is Bailey - she is hilarious!!
12:09 pm
redshoes

Bailey is sooooo great.
12:09 pm
ch1212

LOVE Bailey! And she's getting an expanded storyline this year too.
12:09 pm
Takuma Sato

sounds like they've been close for a little while -- I think there are models of the sort of agreement they're looking for out there
12:09 pm
redshoes

Vah-jay jay. hehehehehe
12:10 pm
ch1212

I hope so, Takuma. The writers are the core of every non-reality show, and deserve appropriate compensation.
12:10 pm
Takuma Sato

but I think these sorts of strikes tend to be long to resolve, since there isn't just one contract or agreement at issue (like in, say, the aircraft controllers' case) but lots of them
12:10 pm
Denny

cool - will have to keep an eye out for the new series
12:11 pm
ch1212

I've enjoyed chatting but now must finish the laundry and then dive into this grid again. Thank you all -- have fun!
12:11 pm
Takuma Sato

ciao ch
12:11 pm
caitlyn

Bye ch1212 see you soon
12:11 pm
redshoes

right. Poor writers never get enough credit. Always goes to the actors, producers, etc.
12:11 pm
redshoes

bye ch!
12:12 pm
Denny

I must away too and see if my little boy wants his tea
12:12 pm
caitlyn

Bye Denny..see you
12:12 pm
Takuma Sato

in this case, the main beef is over revenue from online distribution
12:13 pm
Takuma Sato

see you, denny
12:14 pm

LOL red!!
12:21 pm
Takuma Sato

is the 9 common and/or compound?
12:21 pm
caitlyn

Its de 9 a common word
12:22 pm
Vicuna

9 is a real word, not a compound, is a noun made froma verb
12:22 pm
Takuma Sato

(btw, I think the most appropriate response to good puns is complaining -- that one was so good and quick that I grimaced in real life, red)
12:22 pm
Takuma Sato

thanks vic and cait
12:22 pm
Atalante

hi viiiiiii
12:22 pm
Vicuna

Howdy, Ata, and everyone!
12:22 pm
redshoes

what can I say? I'm a very punny person.
12:23 pm
Takuma Sato

I got the 9 right away after that -- thanks again guys
12:23 pm
Vicuna

My kids are too young to get puns and it's very frustrating! Especially when they try to make up their own knock knock jokes. =P
12:23 pm
redshoes

ok ok ok... I'm done with the puns... for now.
12:23 pm
caitlyn

Time to sort the supper out..chicken curry and rice
Hi and bye Vic..see you all tomorrow.bye
12:23 pm
Takuma Sato

ciao cait
12:24 pm
Atalante

oh dear, do you have to laugh madly at all the "jokes"?
12:24 pm
Vicuna

Bye, Caitlyn. Enjoy your supper.
12:24 pm
redshoes

I like to think of puns as "advanced humor"
12:24 pm
redshoes

I mean... it takes some extra thought to play with words like that. =D
12:24 pm
Takuma Sato

heh vic -- I know that situation. I want to encourage the kids to make jokes, but in particular *good* jokes
12:24 pm
Vicuna

Well, I often do laugh, but only because of the nonsensical nonsequitors.
12:25 pm
Takuma Sato

heh, good point red
12:25 pm
redshoes

nice Vic.
12:25 pm
Atalante

lets have an example :D
12:25 pm
Takuma Sato

heh, the pythons made a career out of non sequiturs ;)
12:25 pm
Vicuna

An example might be something like "Knock knock" Who's there? "Bathtub." Bathtub who? "Bathtub, time to eat your lunch!"
12:26 pm
Takuma Sato

(or, rather, a bunch of careers)
12:26 pm
Takuma Sato

I laughed out loud at that, vic
12:26 pm
Atalante

looool awwwwww
12:26 pm
redshoes

huh... bathtub... lunch... *ponders*
12:26 pm
Vicuna

I try to explain that it should involve a word that can be taken in two different ways, but they just aren't there yet!
12:27 pm
Vicuna

Stop pondering, redshoes! You'll hurt yourself!
12:27 pm
redshoes

too late, I believe! ha.
12:28 pm
Takuma Sato

wait, vic -- do they laugh uproariously after they make jokes like that?
12:28 pm
Vicuna

Anyway, the point is that redshoes is right and a certain level of sophistication - somewhere above 5 years old - is required for puns!
12:28 pm
Vicuna

Yes they do, Takuma. They think they're hysterical.
12:28 pm
Takuma Sato

that's one of my favorite parts of kids' joke-telling
12:29 pm
redshoes

I think that's rather brilliant Vi. Being able to laugh at oneself is truly one of the most wonderful traits ever... in my humble opinion. =)
12:29 pm
redshoes

at least they're on the right track!
12:29 pm
Vicuna

I still have fond memories of a kid I was babysitting trying to tell me a knock-knock joke and laughing so hard I couldn't understand a word he said.
12:30 pm

12:31 pm

Flask1

Oh Sandie am sorry to hear it
12:31 pm
redshoes

sorry Flask... don't have that yet
12:32 pm
Takuma Sato

12:32 pm
Sandieangel

12:32 pm

12:33 pm
Sandieangel

It felt fast. He said his brakes had locked and he couldn't stop!
12:34 pm
montreal13

be5/14 is some kind of reddish nut i believe
12:34 pm
Vicuna

its always disappointing when someone elses error reflects poorly on you and its not even your fault!
1:37 pm
Uniquity

That's supremely unfortunate...as suggested though, the compensation could be even better! Or maybe people will be wondering what the ad was REALLY about and will check it out from curiosity!
