Not evil, sprite -- supplying you with a plethora of Ks for the next gridful.
1:42 am
sprite

people are clueing words sometimes, by referring to the K as "the letter sprite hates". Does that give the picture? ;)
1:42 am
FranMag

sprite, at least dr_g didn't join in the evilness and there are no Ks in the grid today
1:42 am

rosaceous would be valid

2:07 am
sprite

LOL! Ok... let me see... hiccup time: 2 hours after the flip the chat misbehaves.
Sin bin = naughty corner = place you get sent to when you post a grid word into the chat accidentily.

7:27 am
Aloyisius

long story but my best friend and her brother were going to montreal to see a baseball game. at the border the french speaking guards were slower than the two of them wanted so her little brother kept calling them "jacque du mer" after they went through she asked him what he was saying and he thought he was calling them merde du tete (excuse my fracturing of the language). so ever since, jacque du mer is an insult for us.

10:40 am

She was given cortisone, painkillers etc, but it's now apparent that her paw is puffy as well, so the big guns are out now.
10:40 am

bbnaz... it seems to be a cautionary flag at this point...
10:40 am

Oh, dear Spangle...

Poor pup...animals re great at looking pathetic
10:40 am
Atalante

poor spangle :( did she tread on a thorn or something?
10:41 am
Haz1558

So, she's stil not really putting her weight properly on the paw, but hopefully things will get sorted out.
10:41 am
Haz1558

There's no apparent injury to the pad or anything, so it's a bit of a mystery.
10:41 am
Scarlet

I cannot stand to see our animals hurting...
10:41 am
Scarlet

Can an insect sting in between the pads, Haz?
10:42 am
Atalante

like Hobbit's ear ... just there somehow
10:42 am
Haz1558

We probably wouldn't have any insects around at this stage of the year to do any stinging damage. Spangle is the only one who knows, and she's not telling.
10:42 am
Scarlet

How is your wonderful Hobbit now, Ata... lampshade off and no more scratching?
10:43 am

at least she has her own personal physician

She does, Ata, even if he does make jokes about Euthatol.
10:43 am

lampshade half on ad half off. Off until she scratches enough that the skin starts getting red, then lampshade on for a bit

That is diabolically brilliant, Haz... the Euthatol... very funny.
10:46 am
Haz1558

It's the name of the drug, Scarelt. He was drawing up cortisone, I asked what it was, he claimed it was Euthatol.....
10:46 am
Scarlet

LOL...
10:47 am
Atalante

I would not yet have forgiven him for that! I would wait till you make a sauce he doesn't know what's in it, and when he asks, say Euthatol

I was watching a video of hobbit Ata, and found myself shocked at your voice...I discovered that despite knowing where other babblers are from, I imagine them all speaking with a boring American accent (no offence to Americans)
11:06 am
Haz1558

See you Nono.
11:06 am
Niamh

speaking of no accidents, she gave me the sign and I had to run there for a minute.. we're back now
11:07 am
Atalante

LOL Uni, I know that feeling! I always imagine all Americans speaking with a normal boring English accent!
11:07 am
Haz1558

You always think that everyone else has an accent!
11:08 am
Uniquity

I'm trying to imagine everyone as they normally speak. It's very difficult! Even when I use my fake British accent...which I tend to use way too much
11:09 am
Atalante

Haz has probably got the nicest accent, coming from Northern Ireland. Unless she sounds like she's an IRA hitwoman
11:09 am
FMitch

lol Uni
11:09 am
flosey

Fireworks !!! didn't think I'd get this one done - very busy day now
11:09 am
Haz1558

The problem is that there are so many variations on a 'British' accent.
11:09 am
Haz1558

Ah yes, I've got a voice like an assassin's!
11:09 am
Niamh

congrats flosey!
11:09 am
Haz1558

Congratulations flosey!
11:10 am
FMitch

She sounds like Ian Paisley Ata.
Only joking, Haz has a lovely soft accent.
11:10 am
Uniquity

YAY Flosey! A canadian accent, I can imagine that in my sleep :)
11:10 am
caitlyn

I had a great laugh today I had ordered a C.D from Amazon of Paul Potts (Britians got talent winner)I thought it wasa long time coming ..it came today from Argentina ..
Congrats flosey!!
11:10 am
Atalante

*imagines an Ian Paisley accent on the Chief of POlice*
11:10 am
flosey

and there are many canadian accents too
11:10 am
FMitch

Congrats flosey
11:11 am
Uniquity

My stepfather who is from NS lived in BC for a while and was tortured for his accent. Apparently we turn car into a 2-3 syllable word somehow
11:11 am
Haz1558

Yes, chief of police needs no megaphone.
11:11 am
Atalante

Ian Paisley's voice could raise the dead
11:12 am
Haz1558

He's not as loud now as he used to be, though. He's mellowed.
11:12 am
flosey

I had to call for tech support and had one terrible time understanding the accent of a new canadian and felt terrible having to ask him to repeat
11:12 am
FMitch

The C.o.P needs no voice, she just stands there and give you "that look" worse than being back at school
11:12 am
flosey

he was so patient and helpful
11:13 am
flosey

must run now, thanks for all the great clues
11:13 am
FMitch

See Ata, she is doing it now, can't you feel it?
11:13 am
Haz1558

Yes, a look is very effective. ALthough some of my sternest looks have been wasted because some people haven't seen them!
11:13 am
Atalante

I'm blithely ignoring it
11:13 am

11:16 am
FMitch

11:17 am
Haz1558

You missed out on the Bay City Rollers?
11:17 am

11:17 am
FMitch

Ah the younger generation today, sheesh.
11:17 am
Haz1558

Dear goodness, I've had a thought. They'll not reunite?
11:18 am
Atalante

well I was born in 1974, were they around then?
11:18 am
Haz1558

I can't bear the thought of 40/50 something women pouring themselves into tartan trousers to attend concerts.
11:18 am
caitlyn

Im trying to remember what year we are talking about
11:19 am
Haz1558

Their heyday was in the early 70's.
11:19 am
caitlyn

You are just a baby Ata
11:19 am
FMitch

Oh No Haz please no, what a thought!
11:19 am
Atalante

The first music I remember was Queen adn T-rex - my mother's records from when I was a babe
11:19 am
Haz1558

And not even full length trousers. Half mast ones worn with platform boots.
11:20 am
Atalante

didnt they have tartan floppy caps too?
11:20 am
Haz1558

It was the era that taste forgot.
11:20 am
Marjetta

It it was tartan, Atalante, they had it.
11:20 am

A catapiller is a patented device for giving medicine to a feline.
11:21 am
FMitch

You can find it on Amazon £11.95 and it comes with a booket with interviews, gossip and 'Cathy & Claire@
11:21 am
72 Temple Owl

hi all!
11:22 am
caitlyn

Hi TO!!
11:22 am
FMitch

LOL Haz, Hi TO
11:22 am
Niamh

nice one Haz, but does it actually work?
11:22 am
Marjetta

hello TO
11:22 am
Erda

Brava, Haz!!!
11:22 am
Haz1558

So catapiller might well have either a capital letter or be a brand name.
11:22 am
Haz1558

Hello TO.
11:22 am
Niamh

hello TO
11:22 am
Haz1558

Well, I haven't invented the catapiller yet, but I'm sure it would be great..... Atalante could do the drawings.
11:23 am
Marjetta

sounds good to me Haz
11:23 am
Haz1558

Was Cathy and CLaire the agony column, FMitch?
11:23 am
Erda

...and I bet the average cat would find a way to NOT use it...
11:23 am
Atalante

does the catapillar come with a tot of brandy for the person administering it?
11:24 am
FMitch

Sorry was distracted there by the fact you get 2 posters as well. Yes they were Haz.
11:24 am
Niamh

and bandaids... it should come with those too
11:24 am
Haz1558

It comes with a pair of gauntlets attached.
11:24 am
FMitch

Phone
11:25 am
72 Temple Owl

i keep seeing :ipecac" in this grid
11:25 am
Haz1558

I think the catapiller should come with multiple hands each capable of doing something to restrain the cat, to reassure the cat and to get the pill down the cat's throat.
11:26 am
72 Temple Owl

haz just make it robotic.
11:26 am
Atalante

thats the deluxe model
11:26 am
caitlyn

That sounds like any woman Haz!
11:26 am
Niamh

that's a very good idea Haz
11:26 am
Haz1558

My thinking exactly, TO.
11:28 am
Haz1558

How much would anyone pay for such a device? (I'm working on my pitch for Dragon's Den)
11:28 am
inge

does anyone have a clue for the pa 5/12 5/21 combination? I cannot find it for the life of me. Please and thank you.
11:29 am
Atalante

£27.95 then you can have a good profit margin
11:29 am
Haz1558

pa5/12 - a variation of spelling for a hymn of praise, inge.
11:29 am
Haz1558

p plus a very long time, then plural for pa6/21
11:30 am
Haz1558

That sounds expensive, but then a catapiller is for life, not just for Christmas.
11:30 am
bbnaz

okay, anybody have any idea what the RE8 is?
11:30 am
Atalante

exactly. and reduces stress *dramatically*
11:30 am
Atalante

you can probably link it to a decrease in heart attacks in cat owners
11:30 am
inge

oops, I got that one . I need the one after the pa****knife
11:31 am
Niamh

bbnaz, plural of the put back what you've used

11:32 am
bbnaz

11:32 am
Niamh

ooo, don't have the rises up again *looking*
11:32 am
Haz1558

pa5/12 - add a vowel to the end of the pa4/5 before it and then plural it, inge.
11:32 am

DISCLAIMER: i know that stats are just numbers and the camaraderie here is primary with finishing the grid secondary. That being said I am getting really really annoyed that the first two columns are moving yet the "Who's Hot" which is supposed to be for a 30 day period, has not moved since I failed to finish one puzzle on November 4th. I mean, even if it only shifted a point but nooooooooooooo, nada, nothing, zilch zip.

well...would you believe it.... I've finished !!!!
4:37 pm

no i wasnt upset with the clues at all. i was just commenting. i dont get upset or angry while at this cuz otherwise why do it? it is only a game after all. so i take it all as fun and funny and interesting. the enable dictionary is amazing to me. my husband prides himself on a very broad vocab and he and i laugh a lot at the enable dictionary. so kknow that i am laughing. anyway life is too short to get upset by this grid or game. so please know that whatever i type in it is with jest.

Haz... I get to catch up with some of the foster kids at this time of the year, which is a bonus ( or not )

You can use gift bags to a certain extent, but part of the mystery is not knowing what's inside, hence the wrapping.

the bags hid eoddly shaped items well. i do prefer wrapping, though the bags save the day on late things

4:47 pm
Karys

Karys, you're still enjoying Cranford? What a mixture of comedy and tragedy all wrapped up in social history. Life has always had its ups and downs.

heh, no 'tase'? But that was the OED's word of the year!

4:51 pm
Takuma Sato

Heh, I'm skeptical of it anyway -- I think it was originally a proper name ('taser' that is)
4:51 pm
Haz1558

I was so shocked when both Walter and Miss Deborah died!
4:52 pm
herinfernallady

Mummy hi. Thanks not on JB hi fis system :( But this legend just ferreted through the stock and found it.
4:52 pm
Takuma Sato

4:52 pm
herinfernallady

Karys i congratulate you on looking after foster kids
4:52 pm
Karys

I was very worried that it might be Miss Matty's turn if the others could go so suddenly !!
4:52 pm

I hope she's safe. I'm just concerned as to how the young doctor will get out of marrying three women.

wow a monster grid!
4:55 pm
Haz1558

Yes, but there's been skullduggery from his friend and those women see a proposal in the most unlikely things. Who'd have thought lavendar gloves could mean so much?
4:55 pm
Enomis65

good evening to you Enomiss
