Poor old Tammy was married to a TV preacher who ended up in jail -- she remarried and last year (?) died of lung cancer looking devastated but still wearing her makeup, big false eyelashes and all. Appeared on CNN's Larry King shortly before she died -- so sad.

3:01 am

3:04 am
sprite

been better. Hubby went to work this morning, foot is much much better, that is the good news... bad news is our heater/boiler is leaking since last maintenance check... we found out because the wall beneath it is now very wet and yellow and yucky.
3:04 am
sprite

I just wish it would STOP for once. I am so sick and tired of resolving crises, however big or small.
3:05 am
Jandy

Hello lady (if I may too) and sprite! How are two of my favourite Babblers today?
3:05 am
Jandy

Oh, just reading below... sprite, I hope it's not actually the dog....
3:05 am
sprite

hi ya Jandy! Not too great, but still happy to be here with you all.
3:05 am
herinfernallady

Oh NO sprite.
3:06 am
Jandy

That
3:06 am
herinfernallady

Go right ahead Jandy. We got our place too
3:06 am
Jandy

That's good sprite! Me too...
3:06 am
Jandy

Really!!!! FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3:06 am
Jandy

Where abouts is it, lady?
3:07 am
herinfernallady

Yes really happy. 20min walk away. Its great 20 min walk to shops. We are looking at getting a bike for me and 5 min walk to the station
3:07 am
Jandy

Oh excellent news... and a big relief to have it sorted, I'm sure.
3:08 am
Jandy

And I'm so sorry about your plumbing sprite... well, the house plumbing...
3:08 am
sprite

lol Jandy. Yeah, so am I. Maintenance guy is coming today, and I am home alone and need to be firm and all... am not a happy girl.
3:09 am
Jandy

You assert your heart out, girly! Either that or cry... either way has been known to work!
3:10 am
herinfernallady

Sprite just be brave or pout at him
3:10 am
sprite

lol Jandy, true. I might cry, because I can't help myself since the breakdown. Am just shaking in my shoes already, which is stupid, I know.
3:12 am
Jandy

Oh sprite... sending lots of confidence and self-assurance your way. Frankly, I could spare a bit! But just stick to what you know is right and keep repeating it. It works brilliantly for politicians when facing the media!
3:12 am

LOL appartently, lady!
3:12 am
sprite

thanks Jandy :)
3:12 am
Jandy

And they're usually lying!
3:13 am
sprite

yeah... I am lousy in lying. But the truth is the truth, so I'd be okay in that department, I guess.
3:14 am
herinfernallady

told you
3:14 am
Jandy

Indeed you will. It makes it much easier, cause it's a whole extra job to remember what the lie was and be consistent!
3:14 am
sprite

I can't lie convincingly. Stupid but true.
3:14 am
Jandy

The voice of experience.... I never tell big lies, but sometimes succumb to the easiness of a white lie....
3:15 am
herinfernallady

Ok since my pc is having this moment im going to take a 5 minute break and have a shower. Note 5 min be right back
3:15 am
Jandy

Not stupid at all, sprite, the sign of a conscience that is alive and well. Which is a very good thing!
3:15 am
Jandy

See you lady
3:15 am
sprite

bfn lady!
3:17 am
Jandy

There's an awful lot of words in this one spritey! If I wasn't still on sick leave, I wouldn't even fantasise about finishing...
3:17 am
sprite

am down to 7, it is not a tough grid, even though it is big!
3:18 am
lynxxx

Hi Jandy
3:18 am
Jandy

Hiya lynxxx... how are you?
3:18 am
Jandy

SEVEN! Ye gods and little fishes...
3:18 am
lynxxx

good thanks, you are not well? PS did you ever get BabbleExpert?
3:19 am
sprite

wb lynxxx! Good walk?
3:19 am
lynxxx

not too bad, the heats come back so just a short slow one
3:20 am
Jandy

No and no, lynxxx, still struggling with anaemia, though feeling much more human. So maybe this week I will get onto BE, though from what I read on chat all is not well with lickety's household, which must come first
3:20 am
sprite

if you just drop lickety an email, he will send you the link when he can, Jandy, I am sure of it.
3:21 am
Jandy

Will do that - though I am really trying to do as much as I can without the list and have finished a whole two without it, yee haa.
3:21 am
lynxxx

I agree with Sprite jandy, sometimes I think Lickety likes a distraction - espec when MRP is not at home. He's such a lovely fella
3:22 am
Jandy

And it's hot again here, too, lynxxx... that was a nice little cool promise of things to come!
3:22 am
sprite

Jandy, I use the Expert and I don't use the list. You can hide the clues. But the chatbox itself is already worth it!
3:23 am
Jandy

Ah. Didn't realise you could do that. Sounds perfect then! Will email him tommorow.
3:24 am
sprite

it is wonderful. When I type one word, it goes to the clues. When I use a space, the message goes to the chat. No worries.
3:24 am
Jandy

Cool!
3:25 am
lynxxx

We took Stew to a straight greyhound 'racing' track yesterday. Probably about 25 greys there and raced in 2 & 3s. Thay can certainly go when they put their minds to it! so powerful. Stew was OK on his 3rd go, kept up with the other 2 and happily stopped for a chat when the other 2 did. lol
3:25 am
sprite

lol lynxxx! Wonderful! You race him to keep him fit? Or seriously?
3:25 am
Jandy

What fun, lynxxx. They are amazing dogs.
3:27 am
lynxxx

Its recreational only Sprite...all the greys were adopted ie exracers. The common theme is that it is just to let them off lead and have a really good run. Backyards really aren't big enough for them
3:27 am
Jandy

Right. I have a nice piece of beef roasting in the oven which will just be done nicely by the time I cook the mushrooms and other iron-rich veggies! Be back later. Have a lovely evening lynxxx and sprite, stand your ground with the plumber. And if you have to cry, try to do it in a cute, ladylike manner. I find it loses its effect if you blow your nose loudly!!
3:28 am
sprite

I thought that was it, lynxxx. Great for him!
3:28 am
lynxxx

bye for now Jandy

3:32 am
herinfernallady

Back from a shower. happy now. Clean after hard days doing stupid house cleaning (cat fur) and laundry
3:32 am
herinfernallady

Farr i lent out to someone 3 very expensive patterns and never got them back
3:34 am
Farruska

I get those too herin, but I hate wanting to read a book only to find out that it's still at someone's house only 30 minutes away
3:35 am
Farruska

and of course the fact that I still have to ask them back as if it was a favor they were doing to me. grrrr
3:36 am
sprite

yay, fireworks. My final word was the obnoxious chat visitor that we don't want to have around :)
3:36 am
Farruska

sorry, just babblin' away :-D
3:36 am

Congrats Sprite !!

Lynxx did your dog love his run and chat?
3:37 am
Farruska

3:37 am
sprite

lovely grid today, I had a lot of fun. Also wi4 the company, of course :D
Can I help anyone before I go?
3:37 am

3:37 am

Farruska

ty
3:42 am
sprite

perhaps 7 or so, Farruska. From foreign origin, I mean. And a few uncommon words, but not much.
3:42 am
Farruska

gracias again sprite
3:43 am
Haz1558

sprite, arrogant, nose in the air would have a double vowel. The word you're cluing means high up, or above the ground. (sorry to butt in)
3:43 am
lynxxx

Sprite, do you mind if I correct you? that al5.16 means up in the ai, like a sail perhaps. The word you refer to is aloof
3:43 am
lynxxx

Hi Haz!
3:43 am
Farruska

Haz1558 every help counts :-) ty
3:44 am
Haz1558

Good evening lynxx and morning to others.

3:45 am
lynxxx

3:46 am
Haz1558

No. lynxxx, that photo was taken on an evening out. But my new curtains are nice as well!
3:46 am
lynxxx

don't be sorry Sprite - I got the al5 from your clue anyway TY
3:46 am
herinfernallady

Sprite English is a hard language to grasp
3:48 am
sprite

hehehe, well, if it gives some people the word, it is ok as a clue, I guess. Anything else before I go?
3:48 am
lynxxx

Sprite has got an excellent grip on it though, I wish I knew as many words as she
3:48 am
Farruska

go enjoy your day Sprite :-) thank you for the help

I love english, I really do, but I'll never be as good at it as I'd like. I love it when you are willing to correct me. *hugs* to you all and have a terrific day and/or night. And happy babbling!

4:19 am
toadandtoadette

okay. gotta go get Simon ready to go to the child care place so I can go fl5,16 with the dentist. grrr
4:19 am
herinfernallady

Farr its what hes used but you can use bulk add
4:19 am
lynxxx

Very easy, copy/paste your Word List from Babble into the box at the bottom of Licketys list. There are better instructions on the bottom of his list. You can partially copy/paste as well ie just one letter
4:20 am
Farruska

lynxxx definitely my brain is not working 100% today. I do use that feature...
4:20 am

T&T I bet you were a fl*** with all the boys when you were younger

Yap.

I am just looking forward to move
4:34 am
Jandy

What's the timing?
4:34 am
herinfernallady

we get the key 26th of March Easter Weekend
4:34 am
herinfernallady

Which is good timing as i can go do my thing at the cemetery
4:34 am
Jandy

Oh, that's great timing for moving with the extra days!
4:35 am
Jandy

Sorry, lady - cemetery? I might have missed some background...
4:35 am
herinfernallady

YEs indeed.
4:36 am
herinfernallady

My friend died easter wednesday 2005 I can't remember the exact date but Easter don't make me a happy camper
4:36 am
Jandy

I'm so sorry lady. Maybe this move will help you attach some more positive connotations to the holiday...
4:38 am
herinfernallady

Its ok. He was sick.
4:38 am
Jandy

It's still really sad to lose someone young. So I'm sorry you and his family had to go through that.
4:40 am
herinfernallady

I have always believed that Angels are needed and people die. His sister gave birth to his niece the day after the funeral
4:40 am
Jandy

That must have been a real comfort to his family.
4:41 am
Farruska

jandy it can go both ways
4:41 am
Jandy

I'm sure that's true Farruska - do you think it can be bittersweet?
4:42 am
herinfernallady

http://tinyurl.com/2vbfft
THis is him
4:42 am
Farruska

jandy, definitely. no matter what, birth and death will always be associated in the new person.
4:43 am
Jandy

Way too young, lady!
4:43 am
herinfernallady

It is just a theory i have
4:43 am
Farruska

I planed my hopefully soon pregnancy in a way it wouldn't be connected to my brother's birth or death day
4:44 am
Jandy

That's true. It would always be the byline (sorry if that's an obscure word) for that young person. And have fun trying, Farruska! Grin!
4:44 am
Farruska

^_^
4:44 am
Jandy

I like it, lady, as a theory and I don't think it matters what your theory is as long as it gives you comfort when you need it.
4:45 am
Jandy

Now, lady, you guys use this tinyurl all the time, but I've never heard of it before?
4:45 am
herinfernallady

I have had people die around the same time as new babies have been born around the time someone has died. WWW.tinyurl.com

Looking....

Farruska

i've noticed that herin . my sister-in-law's mom died 2 weeks ago and I've been thinking who's going to take her place in the physical world
4:47 am
Jandy

Cool! Will have to have a proper look during the week. Seems like a very handy thing!
4:47 am
herinfernallady

Farr it is sad but sometimes things happen
4:49 am
Jandy

When my father died last year, he was so ready to leave his body behind. It was causing him nothing but suffering. I would be very happy to think of a baby born somewhere with his lovely spirit!
4:49 am
herinfernallady

Jandy tinyurl is very handy
4:50 am

Doesn't quite fit in with my straight Christian upbringing of course, but what the heck! LOL!

MLFAN17

Jandyy yeah i know but he is only working a few hrs so i just assumed i would get up now instead of a few hrs from now. besides i didnt sleep well last night
5:00 am
Jandy

That's all my brain CAN retain, lady! Grin..
5:01 am

Probably went to bed too early, MLF, and were thinking about him not sleeping in. Happens to me all the time with early flights... spend half the night with one eye on the clock@
5:02 am

5:07 am
MLFAN17

Jandy i coudlnt fnish it i just didnt see a lot of the wrods

5:09 am

Jandy

Excellent!
5:10 am
herinfernallady

I finished yesturday but used the list
5:10 am
Jandy

Well, good practice for both brain and eyes to be trying, I think!
5:10 am
MLFAN17

you arent kidding jandy lol
5:10 am
Jandy

I had just started on the list, lady, but had other exciting things to do today like go to the doctors. Woo hoo!
5:11 am

5:12 am
MLFAN17

Jandy ugghhh
5:12 am
MLFAN17

i dont get sick too often but do get colds
5:13 am
Jandy

Ah well... fortunately for me I don't mind needles and stuff.
5:13 am
MLFAN17

Jandy.. i do lol
5:14 am
Jandy

I am a true believer in taking as much Vitamin C as your insides will tolerate the second you get a sore throat or sniffle. Like, 1mg before bed and 1mg first thing next morning. Nips 90% of colds in the bud. And lots of fluid, too.
5:15 am
Jandy

Lucky it's me then, isn't it! Grin.
5:15 am
MLFAN17

Jandy that is great i have heard that is what you are supposed to do at the beginnings of such things
5:16 am
Jandy

It really truly works. I don't take vitamins all the time, just then. Carry the fizzy tablets in my toilet bag all the time.
5:16 am
MLFAN17

yeah i love to take the fizzy tablets when i have a cold too
5:17 am
MLFAN17

are the ae 7 and 8 related?
5:17 am

5:18 am
MLFAN17

Jandy though i am not sure how well that fizzy stuff works but i love to take it instead of an actual pill
5:18 am
lynxxx

just coming down the straight
5:19 am
Jandy

It works as long as you read the boxes really carefully and get the high dose of Vitamin C. Some of the fizzy multivitamins hardly have any in.
5:19 am
Jandy

Lynxxx, it'll be you and Stew neck and neck! LOL!!
5:19 am
MLFAN17

i take the alka seltzer plus cold medicine whe i have a cold
5:20 am
Jandy

Don't know where you are, but I don't think we have it here... I'm a Codral fan if all my vitamining fails!
5:21 am
MLFAN17

you just take it and put it in water and let it dissolve
5:22 am
MLFAN17

when it is dissolved you drink it really fast..it tastes pretty good too
5:22 am
Jandy

That's important. Very important!

5:30 am
MLFAN17

In another fifteen years, we'll probably be reminding each other again. Because we'll just forget...
5:44 am
pinkhatlil

im letting her run around knickerless at the moment, its what she prefers. i just dont want to end up forcing her, then she goes the other way. im letting her take the lead
5:45 am
Jandy

I think it's the best way for her to make the connection between body function and outcome, anyway pink, when she can see and feel it.
5:45 am
herinfernallady

They are talking about easing rental pressure Maybe they should scrap the if you share a house with a flat mate you get sod all money from Centrelink

7:15 am
LoriP

Okay people, let's not taunt me with the promise of meds, and then not deliver! ***pouts***
7:15 am
Merk

What's wrong with Lickety's beta version this morning? I can't get it to show anything except the list ... no grid, chats, send clues to babble or send words to clues. I realize how spoiled I was.
7:15 am
Scrabbler

Periwinkle is having trouble too, but I am not.
7:15 am
Scarlet

I use the Beta V10, Merk, and it's fine.
7:16 am
Scrabbler

You are already on quite a list of meds, Lori, you don't need anymore.
7:16 am
Merk

I have beta V 11. Which version are you using, Scarlet?
7:16 am
LoriP

No troubles with Lickety's here.
7:16 am
LoriP

I'm using v11 Merk
7:16 am
Scrabbler

Beta v11
7:16 am
Scarlet

Crossed posts, Merk... I have the 10.
7:16 am
Merk

That's strange, isn't it.
7:17 am
Scarlet

Some Babblers always experience trouble when the grid is larger than usual, Merk.
7:17 am
Merk

No, I have just the blue background.
7:18 am
Merk

Can you forward the 10 to me. I'll try downloading that one and see if I can use that one instead. I don't think there is much difference between the 10 and 11.
7:19 am
LoriP

Lickety's beta can be cranky on bigger grids. Dunno why
7:19 am
periwinkle

refresh Merk or sign off and start again
7:20 am
Merk

I tried that. Is that how you got yours to work, Peri?
7:20 am

7:30 am
Merk

How long do I have to stay in the PB? Can I come out yet?
7:30 am
LoriP

7:31 am
EspritdJean

lori, that gator seems to have too many letters
7:31 am
Scarlet

Worked for me! Thanks, Lor.
7:31 am
LoriP

7:31 am
Anniebrook

montreal13

7:37 am
Anniebrook

Yes, lori, it seems strange when one is incarcerated in the PB that they lead an luxurious existance but then this is Babble...
7:38 am
Scarlet

You're right, Annie... Haz has often commented that the cushiness of the Penalty Box encourages misbehavior!
7:38 am
EvaNadine

mornin babbler!
7:38 am
Haz1558

Exactly. No deterrent, no punishment. No wonder the world has gone mad.
7:38 am
Anniebrook

It's all FM's fault anyway
7:39 am
Haz1558

Hello again!
7:39 am

Hi Hazel!!!

hi Eva !
7:40 am

Ah, Jacula too

7:42 am
pabtrek

hello my fellow Babblers, I hope everyone is well today
7:42 am
Scarlet

Welcome back, Haz. Good day to EvaN and Jacula!
7:42 am
Haz1558

All I can say is that my new vacuum cleaner is considerably quieter than my old Dyson. People used to think it was a plane getting ready to take off.
7:42 am
Scarlet

Good morning, pabtrek... or, is it badtrek, as I read over the weekend... and laughed so much!
7:42 am
pinkhatlil

Hello everyone!!
7:42 am
montreal13

hi pab - and lol hazel...
7:42 am
Haz1558

<------- headed for outside.
7:42 am
Anniebrook

hi pabtrek!
7:43 am
Jacula

What have you got, Haz? I was wondering whether to get a 'George' one.
7:43 am
montreal13

later hazel
7:43 am
Scarlet

See you soon, Spangle!
7:43 am
Haz1558

I've got a Miele cylinder one. I like it!
7:43 am
Haz1558

No - I meant that Spangle headed for outside when the Dyson was revving up for take off.
7:44 am
Scarlet

Ah... I read it as time to take her mistress outside!
7:44 am
Haz1558

We're just back from a bracing walk so we can both relax for a while.
7:44 am
Jacula

George is a carpet cleaner. Henry and Hetty are the dry cleaners. I've got an old Vax and the cat hates it.
7:45 am
Scarlet

Lovely way to enjoy your lunch then, Haz.
7:45 am
montreal13

ahhh get it hazel - as kids, we used to be afraid of our mom's vacuum cleaner - the sound was deafening...and it had lights in from that made us think of EYES...houhouhou...
7:45 am
montreal13

front* even
7:45 am
Jacula

Has it got good suction, Haz?
7:46 am
Haz1558

Yes, I've been very impressed with it, Jacula. You can vary the suction and it has two different heads so I can do hard and carpeted floors, unlike the upright Dyson. It's quite sturdy which I like but compact.
7:48 am
Jacula

I'll look it up, Haz. I much prefer cylinder vacs., and if it's quite too.
7:48 am
Haz1558

Yes, it's much quieter than the old one.
7:48 am
Jacula

71 left to find but I must go and iron and vacuum. BBL.
7:49 am
Jacula

*quiet not quite. LOL. Byeee.
7:49 am
Haz1558

It's a Miele S4000.
7:49 am

Bye for now, Jac.

7:50 am
Scarlet

Hmmmm...
7:50 am
montreal13

just avoided it myself annie...
7:50 am
Haz1558

We may have to form some sort of ro4/4 system.
7:50 am
Scarlet

Ah!
7:51 am
Anniebrook

I will be hovering and looking miscreants
7:51 am
Anniebrook

insert *for*
7:51 am

Ever at the ready, Annie!

7:53 am
Babs1

7:54 am
Haz1558

You get the feeling that they're built to last.
7:54 am
Babs1

we need one built to last with pounds of shedded dog hair--3 dogs!
7:55 am
Haz1558

That's a lot of hair!
7:55 am
pinkhatlil

Haz said a word!!!
7:56 am
Scarlet

Urf!

pinkhatlil

and Babs!
7:56 am
Babs1

just a tr 6/27!
7:56 am
Haz1558

Oh good grief. Can I plead entrapment?
7:56 am
pinkhatlil

brb!
7:56 am
Scarlet

No, Haz...we are all subject to the same regulations... alas.
7:56 am
Haz1558

Trudging to PB, head not so al5/16
7:57 am
Anniebrook

So did Babs! -------->>>>> off you go, you two!!! *removing bed of nails*
7:57 am
Scarlet

LOL... and Babs will keep you company!
7:57 am
Scarlet

Hahhaha, Annie is in a tough mood this morning!
7:57 am
Babs1

7:57 am
pinkhatlil

LOL annie
7:57 am
montreal13

again the cushy "punishment" - where is the world coming to i ask ?
7:58 am
Scarlet

Annie is the gatekeeper, so she calls the time according to the infraction!
7:58 am
Anniebrook

Well, I did show my soft side by removing the bed of nails placed there by the hard hearted Luc
7:58 am
montreal13

easy annie !!!!!!!! "in somewhat of a stern voice"
7:58 am
Scarlet

LOL, Luc... you and Annie must create the scenario for errant Babblers...
7:58 am
Haz1558

The shame of it all is enough punishment for me. Although on the bright side, George is around....
7:59 am
Anniebrook

Babs, you can come out when you have had your coffee and croissants
7:59 am
Anniebrook

Haz, is George in the PB?
7:59 am
montreal13

George is always there b/c of all the sins you see...
7:59 am
Babs1

omgosh! I'd be dead for the day! could I just have my green smoothie, please?!
7:59 am
Michnick

Hello Babblers. How is everyone this morning?\
8:00 am
Scarlet

What is this? A vacation, Annie! Jacula said bread and rain-barrel water!!
8:00 am
Haz1558

Oh yes. Keeping a watchful eye on proceedings.
8:00 am
Anniebrook

Wellll, okay, Babs
8:00 am
montreal13

hi michnick !
8:01 am
Anniebrook

scarlet, I left the bread and rain-barrel water but removed the bed of nails and replaced it with a cushy divan
8:01 am
Scarlet

Good day, Michnick! Welcome to the Man in the Iron Mask....
8:01 am
Michnick

Hi Montreal. Tough grid, or am I seeing it that way 'cause I've been sick? I don't even know 59 f words.
8:01 am
Anniebrook

hi michnick!
8:01 am
Scarlet

You're just an old softie, Annie! LOL
8:01 am
Michnick

Hi Scarlet. Who is the man in the Iron Mask?\
8:01 am
Michnick

Hi Annie
8:02 am
Scarlet

Do you have the flu, MIchnick? Sorry you are not feeling well.
8:02 am
montreal13

i guess michnick that i know about 35 of them...so far
8:02 am
pinkhatlil

Hello Michnick!!
8:02 am
Scarlet

I believe it's an old Dumas' tale of punishment, and we seem to have an overload of offenders in the penalty box today....
8:02 am
Anniebrook

There's a mattress in the second to last bottom row, might put that in the PB but have to ask FM first..she is the interior designer
8:03 am
Michnick

Hi Pink. I don't know it it's the flu. All stuffed up & I had a fever last night. Whatever, it's no fun.
8:03 am
Michnick

I have 22 f words and I'll try to stay out of the penalty box!
8:03 am
Scarlet

Oh, nasty, Michnick!
8:03 am
Anniebrook

Mich, hope you start feeling better soon
8:04 am
Scarlet

I am battling the R words... it's an ocean of them...
8:05 am
Michnick

Thanks Annie. My hubby took out 2 kids so I'd have some quiet but my littlest is coming home soon.
8:08 am
Jen34

Hi Jen! release is not in the grid, stop typing it in

No, you are NOT alone... as Fox Mulder said many times... LOL

8:19 am
EmaMaria

whenever there is an re or a de I always want words to exist that don't ... such as refl 5/16 to act amorously to someone again after failing miserably the first time
8:20 am
Anniebrook

Ema, refl 5/16 makes perfect sense to me
8:34 am
Angelsong

I got the seeds for my herb garden...I'm going to be planting them this weekend.

That will be so satisfying :)
8:38 am
pinkhatlil

8:38 am
Haz1558

Hello Fmitch!
8:38 am
pinkhatlil

bye Annie!
8:39 am
Angelsong

home grown tomatoes are so much better than buying them from a store.
8:39 am
FMitch

Hey Haz and Hi pink.
Me getting the blame? So long as it's not for lil pinks pottie mistakes!
8:39 am
pinkhatlil

i think that could have been one of them LOL
8:40 am
FMitch

NO WAY, I draw the line at that, reading eabout it was enough!
8:41 am
FMitch

Hows the grid proving to be today?
8:41 am
Haz1558

It's a fun one, FMitch.
8:42 am
pinkhatlil

**sticking head out of gopher hole** Hello, FMitch! It is a really good grid today! :-0
8:45 am
FMitch

Hi Scarlet
8:45 am
dcseain

the grid is actually quite nice today, despite the size. Only took me an hour last night to fiend 155. I'm back now for my last 138
8:45 am
Scarlet

How are you this Monday, FMitch?
8:46 am
Scarlet

I just looked at the stats, seain, and to my surprise, I have 79 left. Good Monday to you. How is your health now?
8:46 am
FMitch

I am very well indeed thanks Scarlet, not quite sure why but the sun is shining and the daffodills make my spirits rise.
8:47 am
dcseain

mostly better, still coughing, but i'm feeling a lot better. one more dose of antibiotics left :) must study much today/tomorrow and do homework; i have a make-up test tomorrow night. MUST get my haircut tomrrow too.
8:47 am
Scarlet

That is helping me, too, FMitch... some jonquils made an appearance over the weekend, and it is hopeful for the coming Springtime!
8:47 am
Scarlet

You sound better, seain.... with a to-do list, it's finally on the upswing! Good!

dcseain

eh, so i did; one i even had already :)
8:50 am
Haz1558

A make-up test, dc? Can we recommend the trowel make-up method, it does wonders for the mature woman, on a younger man it would be amazing.
8:50 am
Scarlet

*giggling madly now**
8:50 am
FMitch

LOL HAz, so glad you are saying that as you and not yr alterego
8:50 am
dcseain

8:51 am
Haz1558

Ah, but FMitch, you don't know what I might be wearing.....
8:52 am
FMitch

Don't you start y'all'ing us dc, theres far too much of that going on as it is
8:52 am
Scarlet

Do share a delightfully descriptive peek, Haz...
8:52 am
FMitch

So long as you are not nude babbling Haz, it's far too cold for that right now.
8:52 am

8:59 am
dcseain

ciao, TO
8:59 am
Haz1558

Hello nance, happy birthday!
8:59 am
FMitch

Fools possibly but not foolishness :)
8:59 am
Haz1558

She can rin fast? And what sort of a mover is she?
8:59 am
Vicuna

Oh, you're right, Haz. I chose the wrong word.
9:00 am
Vicuna

Because clearly we could never be foolish.
9:00 am
FMitch

I was typing with a S.American accent
9:00 am
Vicuna

Lunatic, but not foolish.
9:00 am
Scarlet

Foolishness, Vi? I am shocked, shocked, I tell you!
9:00 am
Haz1558

Foolishness to be replaced by..... imaginative thought expression.
9:00 am
Scarlet

LOL, FMitch!
9:01 am
Vicuna

Indeed we can rin and run fast, FM. I was always the fastest girl on my field hockey team.
9:02 am
FMitch

Oh what position did you play? I was always right back or goal keeper
9:02 am
Vicuna

ALas, I am now too dignified to run fast.
9:02 am
Vicuna

I was left inner.
9:02 am
Scarlet

And I am too... er, mature.
9:03 am
Vicuna

(Left centre forward, if you use different terms.)
9:03 am
FMitch

mmm I don't do running either now
9:03 am
Haz1558

I'm just plain lazy. Plus my mascara might run.
9:03 am
Vicuna

If the mascara runs fast enough, maybe it'll pull you along, Haz!
9:04 am
Vicuna

But Haz is right. Its really just sheer laziness that keeps me from running now.
9:04 am
Haz1558

Our hockey pitches were on a height at school, wind blowing in from Belfast Lough. It was miserable, especially when nobody would explain the rules, apart from 'keep out of the way'.
9:04 am
dcseain

my one great-grandmother, having had a golf-cart trolley pull away as she was boarding in the rain at the zoo, skipped up the hill behind it singing, at 70-something. One is never too old for childish delights/tomfoolery, with re6. Grandma was not always known for her re6.
9:05 am
Vicuna

We've got a good start to a team here, though, FM, with offense and defense represented.
9:05 am
Scarlet

I will be the scorekeeper.
9:05 am
FMitch

and I still have my hockey stick too :)
9:06 am
Vicuna

I have my stick, too. (I coached for a while more recently than I played.)
9:06 am
Haz1558

Can I be the referee, even though I don't know the rules?
9:07 am
Vicuna

That's a great story, seain. I look forward to the day when I can chase after golf carts singing in the rain!
9:07 am
FMitch

funny the things you hang onto from childhood.
Ummm No Haz best not , not with me thundering around the pitch with stick akimbo.
9:07 am
Vicuna

Haz, my husband would say just blow the whistle every two seconds and no one will know the difference.
9:07 am
Haz1558

I remember watching the British hockey team at the Olympics and being convinced that it had NOTHING to do with the game we were supposed to have played.
9:08 am
FMitch

We looked and played like the girls from Str Trinians
9:08 am
Haz1558

Can the referee have the padded armour plating?
9:08 am
Vicuna

It is true that Olympic hockey bears little resemblance to high school hockey - let alone the middle school hockey I coached!
9:08 am
dcseain

absolutely, haz!
9:08 am
Haz1558

And I'd like a golf cart, please.
9:08 am
Vicuna

Will you skip after it singing, Haz?
9:08 am
dcseain

NHL has been changing their play area to match int'l rules.
9:09 am
Haz1558

No, I'll ride on it, yelling and whistling.
9:09 am
Haz1558

It could double as a first aid post as well.
9:09 am
Haz1558

Injured players can hitch a ride to the safety of the sidelines.
9:09 am
Vicuna

Which will certainly be needed with FM on the loose.
9:10 am
Haz1558

Is caitlyn around? She's first aid.
9:10 am
dcseain

so is redturtle, and dr1965, among others.
9:10 am
Vicuna

We'll need them all!
9:11 am
FMitch

Think caitlyn is out stocking up on smelling salts etc.
9:12 am
Haz1558

So, what about the other positions? Any volunteers?
9:12 am
Scarlet

I was so not a jock in school... my right side would scream by the second warm-up lap. Could launch a baseball a country mile, but my fielding was atrocious...
9:13 am
Vicuna

I don't think I'm up for 2-a-side any more! That requires about 100 times more running, and we've already heard how lazy I am...
9:13 am
FMitch

Scarlet thats why I loved the positions I played as I wasn't built for speed
9:13 am
FMitch

Im sure we could get Ata on the team
9:14 am
Vicuna

What position will she play?
9:14 am
dcseain

ata will be goalie :)
9:14 am
FMitch

Oh heavens you can decide that, if youve coached then you're in charge.
9:14 am
Scarlet

We only had tennis, basketball (ugh), baseball and girl's field hockey, which I detested because I did not know anything at all about the game, and the coaches were disinclined to explain it to the doltish among their teams...
9:15 am
Haz1558

No, I see her as a goal-scorer. She needs fuel for her smugness.
9:15 am
Vicuna

Well, the field is still wide open. She can have about whatever she wants and it's bound to be good!
9:15 am
Haz1558

Scarlet - field hockey is what we're talking about. Nobody explained the rules to you either? It must have been a conspiracy.
9:15 am
FMitch

Her smugness will know no bounds soon!
9:16 am
Scarlet

I will volunteer for equipment manager which means I'll have the clean towels for everyone!
9:16 am
Scarlet

It was a very smug school, Haz.
9:17 am
Vicuna

Soccer/football has been encroaching on field hockey so much recently that nowadays coaches will do whatever they can to encourage anyone to join. No more lack of explanations now!
9:17 am
dcseain

we did field hock in gym. it's like soccer with sticks.
9:17 am
Haz1558

Either that, or maybe the coaches weren't good at explaining things.
9:17 am
Scarlet

I get it now, but then, if you didn't know about it, one was considered badly reared...
9:18 am
FMitch

Soccer with sticks *looks horrified at dc*
9:18 am
Scarlet

LOL
9:18 am
dcseain

i exagerate a bit, FM
9:18 am
Haz1558

I just remember feeling utterly bewildered (and cold) as scrums of girls thundered up and down the field past me. They stopped occasionally to have complicated manoeuvres.
9:18 am
Vicuna

Well, seain is right that the positioning and strategy are similar to soccer... But that little phrase "with sticks" glosses over an awful lot of detail!
9:18 am
cheeky

its not just soccer with sticks, it is soccer with sticks and skirts
9:19 am
Haz1558

I always took that opportunity to do up my laces and pretend to be busy.
9:19 am
FMitch

Oh Haz that is such an eloquent picture.
9:19 am
Scarlet

The person inside me thought that it was undignified... I've changed greatly since then...
9:19 am
Vicuna

lol poor Haz!
9:19 am
FMitch

Ah yes cheeky the obligatory pleated green skirt.
9:19 am
nancethefan

just had a call from my son singing hb - awwwwwww
9:19 am
dcseain

indeed so, vic, the sticks make it easier to trip people, for example, ad lets one get at the ball in way sthat one cannot in soccer/football
9:20 am
nancethefan

o & by the way, he needs money - lol
9:20 am
Scarlet

Lovely, nance!!
9:20 am
Haz1558

Just be glad, nance, that you don't have Vicuna singing Happy Birthday. She tries hard, but not a note does she have in her head.
9:21 am
nancethefan

lol - that's alright - she tries
9:21 am
Vicuna

I hve plenty of notes in my head... They just don't make it out of my head accurately.
9:21 am
nancethefan

i'm sure she's better than I am
9:21 am
nancethefan

lol
9:21 am
Vicuna

(Actually, I'll have you know I sing just fine in real life. It's just Haz can't stand the cacophany of my typing.)
9:22 am
dcseain

well, tha te6/27 is certainly a word.
9:22 am
FMitch

I was in the choir at school, smug and shy, now thats a hard look to pull off!
9:22 am
Haz1558

(Vicuna has not yet faced up to reality. The fact that she's barred from every karaoke bar in town tells its own story)
9:22 am
ionie

Hi folks how are u doing with this babble I've done a measly18 words!

9:28 am
dcseain

every time i give a clue like that last one, i remember some older british ladies i was behind at the faregate one day in the Metro. When you exit the system, and have exact fare, the gate says 'farecard captured'. They opined that the use of captured instead of retained or kept was emblematic of the violent culture in the US. LOL
9:28 am
dcseain

ROFLMAO, ionie, SO not in our 20s most of us
9:28 am
Scarlet

Not so, ionie... we are a grand mix of ages here.
9:28 am
FMitch

LOL I wish ionie!!!
9:28 am
Scarlet

Double or triple that, and you will be on target, ionie!!
9:28 am
ionie

Thanks makes me feel better!
9:28 am
Haz1558

I must remember to act my age in future.
9:29 am
dcseain

we range from what now, 7 to 90-something? over all that i know of.
9:29 am
Vicuna

So feel free to act as young as the rest of us, ionie!
9:29 am
dcseain

oh, piffle, haz
9:30 am
Vicuna

Well, philosophically speaking, Haz, if you are your age, and you are acting, the way you are acting must be the way your age acts and ipso facto you are acting your age. QED
9:30 am
dcseain

oh, well said, vic! :D
9:30 am
Scarlet

**Whew, Vi**
9:30 am
Haz1558

Fair enough!
9:31 am

9:31 am
FMitch

tempus fugit, ceteris paribus et gaulloise.
9:31 am
Vicuna

(I'm the queen of rationalization!)
9:31 am
Vicuna

gaulloise? Is montreal around here, smoking again?
9:31 am
FMitch

Haz if you hold her I will administer The Medication
9:32 am
Scarlet

She may have dipped into LoriP's medication chest...
9:32 am
Haz1558

Getting the restraints.
9:32 am
Scarlet

Administering ether...
9:32 am
Vicuna

Oh fine, Haz and FM. If you don't need any rationalizations done! But I've always found people really appreciate the occasional rationalization which I provide.
9:33 am
FMitch

Nevermind them Haz just sit on her!
9:33 am
Vicuna

Oooooh, that tickles!
9:33 am
Haz1558

Do they smile at you, Vicuna? And thank you? And then make a hasty departure? Things might not be as you think.
9:33 am
hootowl

It's making MY head hurt!
9:34 am

There all done. You will feel better soon Vi.

Bye ionie.
9:34 am
Vicuna

Right, that's it. No more rationalizations for Haz. From now on when she talks about acting her age, I'll just agree, "That's true, Haz. You're way too old to join in the fun here."
9:35 am
hootowl

Morning, evening whatever. I really try to concentrate on the grid and then you guys blow my mind! Of course it started with the fiekd hockey

I was born and raised in Brooklyn,NY. My first experience with that form of torture was 8th grade when we moved to LI. NO explanations. I had a ball kicked into my belly 5min after we started playing. I'm writhing on the ground and teach comes over and says "good block". what do you think?

9:41 am
dcseain

quite so, haz :)
9:41 am
Michnick

How you can all focus on the grid and keep up the banter is beyone me. And just how does that make me a kleptomaniac, Haz?
9:42 am
FMitch

Mich - years of practice!
9:42 am
dcseain

nick means to steal, so muchnick must be klepto :D
9:42 am
Scarlet

It is the cleansing stream-of-consciousness which hones our sleuting skills, Michnick!
9:42 am
Haz1558

Nick is a slang word for stealing, much means a lot, put the two together and you have one who steals. No aspersions being cast on you, just word play.
9:43 am
Scarlet

*sleuthing*... apparently not typing skills! :-)
9:43 am

9:57 am

Or does that make me show my age again?

10:17 am
dcseain

morning, red :)
10:17 am
Scarlet

And, any news yet, red?
10:17 am
dcseain

how went the interview?
10:17 am
redturtlehead

I think the job is mine, becausethe managersaid she was looking forward to meeting me...but noofficial offer yet.
10:18 am
redturtlehead

Of course I have a Huuuuuge fight with J, and he seems to want to set me up with a fat friend of his, so I am a little confused about that.
10:18 am
dcseain

well, that's good, even w/out the offer.
10:18 am
Scarlet

Circling the Twilight Zone...
10:18 am
Scarlet

Ugh, red... that sounds very "iffy" at best... run, don't walk away from THAT one...
10:18 am
redturtlehead

She offerred, but the official stuff has to be seen on the contract...never sure until its signed, but it was a relief.
10:19 am
redturtlehead

J, I have decided is a Jerk. but Florida can still be nice!
10:19 am
Scarlet

The personal stuff... not the job possibility.
10:19 am
dcseain

indeed so red, sounds like a sound decision, from what you've presented.
10:19 am
redturtlehead

I agree Scarlet...
10:20 am
redturtlehead

Men can be very mean, but not all men.
10:20 am
Scarlet

I cannot abide meanness... I am so outta there if that starts...
10:20 am
Uniquity

Some of them are very nice...but I think that is about as rare as a nice woman **prepares for attack**.
10:21 am
dcseain

people are people uni, you are right.
10:22 am
Scarlet

I think many humans are implanted with the native memory of kindness...if it's not there, it rarely ratchets up to civility...
10:22 am
dcseain

that mkes sense, scalet.
10:22 am
Scarlet

Just theorizing here, seain.
10:23 am
Uniquity

But then there are beauties like we often find on babble :)
10:23 am
dcseain

10:23 am

Yes, Uni... the rarest of the rare.... blossoms of the Olympian inhabitants...
10:23 am

10:27 am
Uniquity

I will have to make another one to calm you down, red
10:27 am
redturtlehead

It'sthe boldlips and color that do it...
10:27 am
Scarlet

Cautious congratulations, red.
10:27 am
redturtlehead

:)
10:28 am
redturtlehead

We'll see. I am really hoping to be able to do right with housing as well, but...
10:28 am
Uniquity

Gotta have spunk, even in cartoon land...I'm glad the job is looking good!
10:28 am
redturtlehead

It is a big relief, despit the big argument with J...the jerk.
10:29 am
redturtlehead

I like the grid.
10:29 am
Uniquity

Uh-oh, I reached the REs...I mght be out of commission for a bit
10:29 am

10:29 am
ardilla

10:30 am

1:15 pm
Aloyisius

1:15 pm
Niamh

my daughter is 9 and she is only allowed to put on makeup for dressup purposes in the house.. she can't even play in the yard with it on... and not showing her how is worse I would think!!

Fresh-faced and proud of it!

He had mentioned something quite a long time ago, Aloy, that is very good at tracking and outing them very quickly... sometimes we get a few, but they don't last too long.
1:26 pm
dcseain

1:26 pm

Aloy - I get a laugh out of that every year :)
1:50 pm

We got engaged after 5 months and people thought that was quick, however I was surprised at the amount of long married couples who admitted they had got engaged as quick or quicker

1:51 pm
BabbleRabble

Obviously, Angela, it was not a split decision
1:51 pm

1:52 pm
Angela

Sheesh Scarlet - didn't even think of that! Wow!
1:53 pm
KatieMcG

My friend didn't tell anyone she was getting married, they pulled people from the office for witnesses, she had a lovely day as it was exactly what she wanted
1:53 pm
Aloyisius

Uh-oh... sorry to give you a reality update, Angela... LOL

1:53 pm
Angela

that's great Katie. No problem Scarlet :)
1:54 pm
KatieMcG

it was on the 10th anniversary of their first date so they didn't rush in!!
1:54 pm
rolin

the line that got me the most was..after talking with the guy in the taxi...and the driver saying about how much devastation the racism has caused...when he hears what the hero is doing the taxi driver says...youre doing that for a shiah??..aaaghh!!
1:55 pm
Niamh

I'll be getting married on the 7th anniversary of when we first met
1:55 pm
Angela

ha! no kidding katie - guess they wanted to be sure!
1:55 pm
lil*monkey

yes rolin, there's much irony and symbolism in the book. How about when Hassan writes Amir the letter and talks about the tree bearing no fruit ??? (it's the tree Amir carved their initials in when they were boys)
1:55 pm
KatieMcG

thats lovely Niamh, are you having a big do or more intimate?
1:55 pm
Scarlet

Scarlet

We married and then called our children... we wanted it to be just us...
2:01 pm
Niamh

I'm sure that's a lot less stress than what Katie and I are doing... less mess, and peaceful... sounds beautiful
2:01 pm
Scarlet

They mumbled, cried, said they knew it would happen and all was forgiven...
2:02 pm
Angela

Sometimes it doesn't matter Niamh - My parents "suggested" a big country club wedding the next year for the family/friends.
2:02 pm
Scarlet

We owned the newspaper then... we dressed nicely to meet with the JP who was our friend, married, went back to the office and changed into jeans, and then set out to cover a large, annual church picnic in the country.

A carrot and a tomato were walking across the street when the carrot was hit by a car and was taken to the the emergency room by ambulance. Finally, the doctor called out, "Mr. Tomato?" The tomato went over, and asked the doctor, "How is he?" The doctor replied, "I have good news and bad news. The good news is that he is still alive. The bad news is that he will be a vegetable for the rest of his life."

2:15 pm
jillibus

babrab -- That's one of the few jokes I can remember but mine has a different twist. This carrot walks into a bar, you see, and sees a nice juicy tomato sitting at the counteer, so he goes there and chats her up. Meanwhile, there's a bunch of potatoes sitting at a table and they take exception to this, so they go and beat up the carrot vilently. The tomato is very upset and calls an ambulance. She asks if she can accompany the carrot to the hospital...and you can take it from there.
2:16 pm
Aloyisius
