why is cosmo not in the dictionary???
1:17 am
SaddySolar

whywhy why
1:17 am
dcseain

becuase it's short for cosmopolitan
1:17 am
dcseain

and cosmos has no singular, as it's a collective.

but its used everywhere

and if docs is a valid word... why isnt cosmo
1:18 am
lynxxx

Taurus has a capital
1:18 am
dcseain

'sysop' is my only response to that. don't know what else to say. :)
1:19 am
SarahBellum

also, cosmo isn't short for cosmopolitan. It means universal. It's pertaining to the universe.
1:19 am
SaddySolar

no thats cosmos sarah
1:19 am
badhabit_

is it because i havent slept yet
1:20 am
SaddySolar

whats a sysop?
1:20 am
badhabit_

ut is "moter" a word... as in... car motor
1:20 am

oh :$
1:20 am

finished
1:21 am
dcseain

a valid word in the grid, short for systems operator.
1:21 am
SaddySolar

my phantom word is steroid
1:21 am
SarahBellum

cosmo is a prefix, Saddy. We have lots of prefixes in this game. Anti- , for example.
1:21 am
dcseain

well done, maniac, cograts!
1:21 am
BabbleRabble

the simple and only answer is the Enable dictionary is the final arbitor .... no matter how valid your reasoning and logic are, enable will decide what goes in the grid.

They feel freaky and they are actually realistically coloured.

ciao, lady
2:50 am

Dc think you'll find they are native to Asia and America. Magnolia grandiflora is the official state flower of both Mississippi and Louisiana.
2:51 am
dcseain

yes, i live at the northern limit of grandiflora, and it's the onnly kind i'd seen until i was in my 20s.
2:52 am
Frances

A house near me has a magnificent specimen in the garden. Flowers the size of dinner plates.
2:53 am
dcseain

i love the way the grandiflora smell. There are some gloriously large ones on the West side of the US Capitol.
2:55 am
dcseain

Cornwall must be at least as mild has here, then, for a home near you to have such a specimen, Frances. I didn't know that they were grown elsewhere in the world.
2:56 am
Frances

I'm not in Cornwall dc. Far from it and I have never seen another in this country.

so i've been told, sprite. here, it's a rare treat.
4:50 am

sudoku is about symbols, not about numbers.
4:50 am
dcseain

hm. maybe i should try snoodoku, and see if i do better with it.
4:50 am

I can send you some at any time, dc, if that is allowed in the states.
4:51 am

I started with snoodoku!

FranMag

snoodoku?
4:51 am
sprite

long before I ever made a sudoku with numbers!
4:51 am
dcseain

and i'm clear on the patterness of it. it's the eliminating posibilities that i'm not so good with.
4:51 am

really sprite? You know snood?

dcseain

i was so happy when they ported snood to windows :)
4:53 am
FranMag

i think i would do better with the numbers in the traditional game
4:53 am
sprite

only sad thing about it is, once you get better in it, you find that the really tough puzzles are sometimes in a pattern. Like, if one row has abc, and the next row shows a*c, it is always B. Not so well-made puzzles.
4:54 am
sprite

better AT it, not IN it. Sorry, dutchism.

yeah it's a downloadable game similar to sudoku but with pictures instead of numbers

Whew (grid check, okay, not a word!), I'm safe! Sudoku is okay, but not a draw for me, even with Snood characters.
6:02 am
NonoNanette

have played sudoku for ages really like solving a tough one

Now, Uni, if you were talking jigsaw puzzles online, I'd be listening!

Good morning, babblers, it's 7:00 a.m. - seems like a great grid today- moving along fast

G'morning, JBV, yes, a nice grid with lots of endings

Have you used jigzone before Nono? I like te new puzzle every day business

Okay, 108 so far, and time to get ready for work. Lots of layers today for wind chill factor, right, Nan?
6:08 am

I have uni but this group has much nicer puzzles
6:08 am
JBsAnno

Uni, one of my favorite puzzles is the color chart. And I always pick the 70 piece bulbs
6:10 am
JBsAnno

Okay, one more complete change of subject that has nothing to do with the grid today, but I want to get this off my chest:
Do any of you ever fill out web surveys on sites you visit? I did last night for one of our local channels, hoo boy
6:10 am
NonoNanette

i have a couple of times JB
6:11 am
Uniquity

I tend to ignore anything that even remotely resembles spam on the internet, but I have before, JB. Why do you ask?
6:11 am
JBsAnno

and it went on, and on, and on
6:12 am
NonoNanette

yeah they tell you it will take just a few minutes but yikes it goes on forever
6:12 am
JBsAnno

and if I missed an answer, it wouldn't go to the next screen. Well, after about 20 screens I stopped being helpful
6:12 am
JBsAnno

Totally, Nan!
But I was determined to see it through, just to see how bad it was
6:12 am
JBsAnno

And it was
6:13 am
JBsAnno

Bad!
6:13 am
JBsAnno

Bad!

sounds like a survey i did after placing an order on walmart.com lol

I do online surveys for candidates who interview with us, and I keep it to 10 questions, tops!
6:14 am
JBsAnno

brb!
6:19 am
JBsAnno

So I started using any comment boxes to give answers like: this survey is way too long; how many more questions; you've got to be kidding me; and whatotherwebsitesIvisitisnoneofyourdan
gbusiness.com
6:19 am
JBsAnno

There, I feel much better now, thanks for letting me unload!
6:21 am
JBsAnno

Fiber, and Uni, sometimes I fill them out because I make surveys and it gives me a measure of sorts on how easy one should be to navigate and complete.
6:23 am
Uniquity

LOL! JBs, I think that was the perfect response!
6:24 am
JBsAnno

I had to laugh, Uni, at the ridiculousness of it!
6:25 am
Uniquity

Now I want to fill out a tremendously long survey...with all sorts of unnecessary info.
6:27 am

Hmm, I may have unleashed the beast!! LOL, Uni!

Oh, and look at the time! I've already let the bus go by, fortunately for me there are several in this hour.

had to put my snowshoes on yesterday to fill the bird feeder. It used to be about 5 feet off the ground and is now about 3 feet above the snow and has become more of a deer feeder. Think I need to raise it, but then when spring thaw comes I won't be able to reach it.

7:36 am

The taker of blame? You're too young for such an onerous task. That has to fall on an older person's shoulders. FMitch has been established as blame taker since Magna Carta and you don't get much older than that.

Hmm, good point, I should have known better

Yes, FMitch, more reasons to stay lurking.

Uh oh, Scrabbler. Sorry to hear that. Usually, it has no effect on me.

i certainly did, i hugged and kissed her. I didnt reward her with sweets or anything like that as it was gone 1am, i reckon if i leave her without a nappy she'll just go to the potty....but i thought i would share that info with you all!!!
8:19 am
Uniquity

No, that's exactly right! Hugs and kisses and pride. She will get after a few months that it makes her a big special girl, then you can slowly weed out the big celebration part.
8:19 am
LoriP

Isn't she only, like 2 pink? She'll learn when she's ready. Lots of time.

No, babblets are unusual words that appear often in babble, but are unlikely to be seen or used in real life.
8:33 am
Aloyisius

babblets are strange little words that have a tendency to occur frequently in grids, army

Vicuna

I can shoot whiskey... at twenty paces behind my back, just like Annie Oakley. But I'd never DRINK the stuff!

is the cr6/24 a common word?
10:04 am
Scarlet

**snuffling and tissue cramming*** Okay, Uni. Pax?
10:04 am
Haz1558

'Do not forsake me, oh my darling' - I hear the song swelling at the reconciliation of Uniquity and Scarlet.
10:04 am
LadyNatts

definitely, harp
10:04 am
Vicuna

Cue the violins.
10:04 am
Aloyisius

give me cr6.24 for telling you it IS a common word
10:04 am
Uniquity

I imagine it more as running through a field of daisies in slow motion...
10:05 am
Scarlet

I think I'll go stick my head in the oven... Oh, wait... it's electric...
10:05 am
Haz1558

And harpjane should certainly be playing on this one.
10:05 am
Scarlet

With Pink Floyd blaring in the background... Cue Dogs of War
10:05 am
Aloyisius

LOL, it isn't Friday, Scarlet..
10:05 am
Vicuna

You could still bake your head, Scarlet. (Am I being a good friend again?)
10:06 am

Blues Brothers - 'Turn on your love light', more like it!

10:08 am

Does anyone here like the late Maynard Ferguson? I saw him in concert about 10 times, and loved the guy...
10:09 am
Aloyisius

my hand is in the air, Scarlet.. he was awesome
10:10 am

Cracking is good. Baking your head is NOT.

Could all the country music talk have been enough to push babblers over the edge?

Aloyisius

we are alright, just a bit babble brained
10:13 am
Uniquity

You guys are trying to break my spirit!!
10:14 am
Haz1558

You'll not find me in any pick-up truck.
10:14 am
Scarlet

Impossible! You are cracked... that is a hopeful sign of independence, Uni-clue!
10:14 am
Vicuna

Weren't we already cracked?
10:15 am
Aloyisius

i used a pick up truck to retrieve the garbage and recycling this morning.. what do you have against pickup trucks, Haz?
10:15 am
Uniquity

Independance? Is that when you dance with a pen?
10:15 am
Scarlet

But, I thought your were advancing the Country Music agenda, Chief!
10:15 am
Scarlet

Pending further examination, Uni... :-o
10:15 am
Haz1558

I'm so short, it would be a major achievement to get into a pick up truck.
10:16 am
Aloyisius

ah so, well, they can come with step ups..
10:16 am
Uniquity

So FMitch claims to be 6 feet and Haz is short...yet the tall one takes the blame and the short one is police chief! Over compensation?
10:16 am
Haz1558

And my country music agenda is that IF you hand out words on a plate, THEN those in receipt should have to listen to country music, sit on nails and wear hairshirts whilst entering them.
10:17 am
Scarlet

I have it covered, Chief!
10:17 am
Haz1558

FMitch is 6 foot, I am 5 foot 1 and a bit. We'd make a good comedy team.
10:17 am
Aloyisius

ok, now i feel dumb... what is a hairshirt?
10:17 am
Scarlet

Greatness knows no limitations, Uni...
10:17 am
Vicuna

You already are a good comedy team.
10:18 am
Uniquity

Almost like me and my beloved...he is 5 foot, i am 5 foot 10.
10:19 am
Haz1558

A hair shirt is made out of hair. But itchy, scratchy stuff. Horse hair, perhaps?
10:19 am
Scarlet

Tisn't an issue...
10:19 am
debjed

Hi everyone! I'm having a hard time with the G's. I have the direction given to a horse
10:19 am
Aloyisius

ack, that would be persecution to the max!
10:19 am
Scarlet

You MUST suffer in a hairshirt, Aloy
10:20 am
Vicuna

One wears it to do penance... if one feels that the ridiculous chat is insufficient punishment for one's sins.
10:20 am
Aloyisius

ge + robotic ending

10:20 am
Scarlet

Or, any of the newfangled, itchy threads which hold the neck tag on a blouse... daggone things drive me batty.
10:20 am
Aloyisius

ty all.. have learned another gem from my babble buddies!
10:21 am
Aloyisius

i chop them all off, Scarlet
10:21 am
Vicuna

Yes, the modern hairshirt would have tags all over.
10:21 am
Haz1558

Paco sweatshirts seemed to specialise in using barbed wire thread to stitch on their labels.
10:22 am
Scarlet

I cut them too, but the wretched things are double-looped into the seam...
10:22 am
Aloyisius

glad you found it, deb
10:22 am
witchy

what's a robotic ending?
10:22 am
Uniquity

Seam rippers all the way on tags
10:22 am
Aloyisius

like android?
10:23 am
Scarlet

I use the seam-rippers, Uni, but the critters are simply determined to cut into my skin, no matter what... my chalk-white skin...
10:23 am
Aloyisius

lily white sounds better, scarlet
10:23 am
Scarlet

Which becomes "scarlet" in a heartbeat! No, I am chalky, Aloy... I yam what I yam...
10:23 am
witchy

thanks, looks like the chat hasn't got any saner whilst I've been away!!
10:24 am
Uniquity

Undernourished strawberry white?
10:24 am
Aloyisius

10:24 am

10:24 am

Hi, witchy...are you looking for some kind of miracle?
10:25 am
witchy

10:25 am
Scarlet

Good... I was almost worried for a millisecond there... LOL
10:27 am
Aloyisius

hah.. finally found the sac for the testicles..
10:27 am
Scarlet

I am so happy for you, Aloy.
10:27 am
Haz1558

There's something you don't expect Aloy to announce in chat.
10:27 am
LoriP

LOLOL Didn't know it was sex-ed class this morning. Where was my memo?
10:28 am
witchy

thank god for that aloy else there'd be balls everywhere
10:28 am
Aloyisius

well, i had a feeling it was in the grid..
10:28 am
Scarlet

{{Lori}} Try any new recipes lately?
10:28 am
Uniquity

Sometimes we choose to keep you ill informed in order to maintain performance standards
10:28 am
periwinkle

I didn't get the memo either
10:28 am
Haz1558

And being pedantic, she's found more than one.
10:28 am
Aloyisius

10:28 am
LoriP

That mad my whole day. Talk about timing, that was the first thing I saw in chat. LOLOLOL
10:28 am
Haz1558

You missed nothing, Aloy. Apart from the points, of course.
10:29 am
Uniquity

Timing is essential for every good ballerina
10:29 am
LoriP

Scarlet!!! ***hugs***
10:29 am
LoriP

Oh man. I'm still laughing. ***has the overtired giggles, methinks***
10:30 am
Vicuna

Timing is important for ballerinas, comics... and those who wish to explore sacs for testicles.
10:30 am
Aloyisius

well, it is a biological term...
10:30 am
Uniquity

sc****, if you will...
10:30 am

10:31 am
LoriP

My lurkometer was redlining Esprit. I just knew that Aloy's comment would draw you out..... :)
10:31 am
EspritdJean

hmmmmmmm those who wish to explore sacs for testicles . . . .
10:31 am
EspritdJean

it surely did
10:31 am
Aloyisius

hi, Esprit... nice to see you
10:31 am
LoriP

Is membership required for that?
10:31 am
Haz1558

Is it a career option?
10:32 am
EspritdJean

more like Vicuna's comment
10:32 am
LoriP

Like, how does that work really, is what I'm asking...
10:32 am
Vicuna

I think it's more of a hobby than a career, Haz.
10:32 am
Uniquity

Might involve a scalpel, unfortunately
10:32 am
EspritdJean

must be the old "turn your head to one side and cough" test
10:32 am
Vicuna

Yikes, Uni! Now you're scaring me!
10:33 am
Uniquity

Got the movie "hard candy" in ym head ever since you said exploring sacs for testicles...ugh
10:33 am
Scarlet

I remain steadfast: Bake your head when all else fails...
10:33 am
Aloyisius

i hereby retract my comment, lol
10:33 am

10:34 am
Uniquity

Oprah will get it out of me for a hefty sum
10:34 am
LoriP

Nope. I do believe your are now the chief testicular consultant Aloy.
10:34 am
Scarlet

Too late, Lori... she is your Doppelganger...
10:34 am
Uniquity

Better that than the LoriP doppleganger!
10:34 am
Scarlet

Aloy, you cannot win this one. *Joins Aloy to maintain dignity*
10:34 am
LoriP

She has yet to blossom to my full inane depths. A mere babe in arms....
10:34 am
Aloyisius

oh wow.. i am so honored!
10:35 am
EspritdJean

I could contribute some testicular lore, I work in a fertility practice :-)
10:35 am
Scarlet

But the POTENTIAL is there, Lor.
10:35 am
Aloyisius

great balls of fire!
10:35 am
Scarlet

TMI!!!
10:35 am
Uniquity

LOL...Aloy. When I grow up, can I be you?
10:35 am
LoriP

We will defer all future testicular questions to Aloy. We have yet to plumb the depths of that resource methinks.... :-)
10:35 am

10:37 am

10:37 am

Happy dining. I know Haz wirlds a mean cattle prod, so I'll try to behave.

10:39 am
Haz1558

I'll need something like a cattle prod to get this computer to behave - trying to print things and it's telling me it needs a printer. There's one there! And it's connected. Henry Kissinger might be needed to get the two of them talking to each other. Back later, hopefully!
10:39 am

You could focus on declaring a major, instead Uni.

10:46 am
EspritdJean

no Lori, everyone knows Keebler Elves do it!
10:46 am
Uniquity

Depends. What kind? If a good kind, they should make two sets of themselves...and send one with SD to me.
10:46 am
KatieMcG

LoriP, you'll find them bake themselves in any good supermarket
10:47 am
LoriP

10:48 am

I always thought there was something suspicious about those Keebler elves. Can't quite put my finger on it though.
10:48 am
LoriP

Can do Uni. Chocolate chip muffins?
10:48 am
EspritdJean

Lori - there are no lady elves, that's what it is!
10:49 am

If you could bake me about ten cakes, that's be great too
10:51 am
KatieMcG

We've only just had them helping Santa it doesn't seem fitting :-)
10:51 am

10:51 am
Aloyisius

now, now... simply a proper anatomical name
10:51 am
EspritdJean

well, everyone knows why Santa Claus doesn't have children
10:52 am

He likes the elves?
10:52 am

10:52 am

4th quarter Brady and the team a sa whole, click. Billichek expects discipline, and that's been the key. No boasting, no crap. Just do your job
1:53 pm

That was some game Scarlet. It was something. hecku'va game.
1:53 pm
Scarlet

Exactly. Very disciplined... I was worried for a few weeks... the pocket around Brady kept dissolving, and the defense looked like a bunch of Nancyboys (no insult to our resident wit) and I wondered what the heck was going on with them and why Billo didn't kick some serious tushies!
