We observe too great a stress
On the risks that on us press
And of reference a lack
To our chance of coming back
Still perhaps it would be wise
Not to ca4 or criticize
For it's very evident
These intentions are well-meant

JBV, I lived in a dorm last year...I had to go through rooms/bathrooms with so many girls (and their accompanying guys) that I am desensitized. He is in your house! Do what makes you comfortable!

Hi Scrabbs!

Herin, that is what we are aiming for, a house. Land here is very expensive and to move the house it cost prohibitive
7:54 am
Uniquity

Herin, "the state" seizing houses has been a disturbing aspect of Canada and the USA for years. Modern day isn't nearly as bad as Africville in NS for example, but there is a long history of gross injustices.

look if your going to mock me i just wont clue. I didn't know how to clue it and the reason i put in genus is the Genus actually names it in the genus/

i like the word vanquish

Scrabbler

I commend anyone that finished yesterday's grid. I just could not "see" words in that grid and struggled to get 1/3 done before + after work.
8:19 am
evanonut

i also like the word peruse
8:19 am
MonkeyGames

Scrabbler, several people at school were trying to tell me that coca cola will help a UTI clear up. I thought caffeine and sugar were bad. If it's just the acidity I've been taking extra vit C. What do you know about this cola assertion?
8:19 am
Scrabbler

I like the word "serendipity".

Yup, have that. Liters of it.

UTI: lots of water and cranberry supplements.

MG, I think any fluid is good---just making lots of pee and flushing out the bladder frequently is good.
8:20 am

MG drink tons of water

Hi Annie

Hi Scrabbs!

8:22 am
MonkeyGames

OK. Yup, just been pouring back the water and cran juice. Had to go to the speed post last night for it, darn it. When I was younger they tended to clear up on their own, bu tthis got so bad so fast I called teh advice post and tehy said go in and get antibiotics.
8:22 am
herinfernallady

Also make sure the UTI isn't an STD
8:22 am

I've never heard the Coke thing. I would think it would be wiser to avoid sugary/acidy liquids.

If someone said go away, would you?
8:26 am
Scrabbler

That is my problem, Nut--last year I had 3 within a few months---holding it in too long when busy at work worshipping my boss.
8:26 am
herinfernallady

Excuse me Fmitch I have as much right to be here as you. I ignore you and so thus ignore me be a grown up would you and not being five.

Hmm. Too much stress can bring them on too, I'm told. I used to get them fairly frequently. Then I rid myself of the lawyers I worked for and, voila! No more STIs.
8:27 am

my pee of course fernal
8:27 am
MonkeyGames

I wonder if that's what did it. I have in the past couple of weeks engaged in no activity that usually brings 'em on. But I was so busy with school work at my apprenticeship place Monday I didn't get up and go as often as I should have by any means.
8:27 am

Stress. Ah. Of oucrse. I've been getting more flu's and everything for months, doctor is sure it's related to working and getting a degree at a school in a foreign language and raising a kid...

Fish. Three letters, starts with G. Pike is one kind of 'em. Then insert a vowel before the first vowel.

Barracuda's another kind, also tasty.

9:02 am

2 med. potatoes, boiled and mashed and cooled. Add 1/2 cup olive oil and 1/3 cup white vinegar. Add about 25 or so garlic cloves. Blend to sauce.
9:02 am
MonkeyGames

Oh, and salt and black pepper. Serve as sauce for grilled meats.
9:02 am

Raw garlic, of course.
9:03 am

For those that like garlic try stuffing a chicken with whole cloves, as many as the cavity will take and then roast as usual.
9:05 am

Hi Katie, harp and Jandel
9:06 am

FMitch, that is GREAT, but even better is to add butter to the garlic, take all the bones out of the main part of the chicken, and seal it up before roasting.
9:06 am

G'd morning harp, Mrs Katie... :)

9:14 am

Well, watch these! You need to see House in order though or you'll have no idea what's going on in season 4. The post writer's strike season finale double episode was just amazing.

ok, I am putting House on my to see list then! Heroes is one I wanted already. Am watching Millennium atm... anyone remember that series?

any mums here? Is it normal for a 10 yo girl to lie to try and escape problems? Even if we have very strict rules about lying being worse than any other thing?
9:21 am
Haz1558

Good afternoon all!
9:21 am
FMitch

Afternoon Haz
9:21 am
Vicuna

Sprite, it's quite common, but I think the real question is whether or not this is normal behavior for this particular girl.
9:21 am
sprite

hi Haz! George is smiling at me from the livingroom table this week!
9:21 am

Yes Sprite, its all part of learning ../Development, testing boundaries etc etc

hello Haz.

My previously 10 year old, now 19 is around here somewhere. She may have some insight.....

9:22 am
herinfernallady

Sprite i am here. I just had to feed kity
9:23 am
sprite

she keeps forgetting to call home if she is lunching at a friend's, or playing. And then she lies about having called, but us not picking up the phone. So I said: why not leave a message then? And she went all teary and we knew she was lying, and after a while she confessed.
9:23 am
Haz1558

Greetings all.
9:23 am
sprite

hi lady *hug*
9:23 am
Vicuna

That sounds more annoying and frustrating than disastrous, sprite.
9:23 am
LoriP

boundary testing. SO common. Be consistent,a nd have results for violating the rules.
9:24 am
LoriP

Safety is not negotiable IMO
9:24 am
sprite

thanks guys. I was worried, don't want to have a member of our family lying... trust is so important. Ok, punishment for both lying and not informing us of her whereabouts.
9:24 am
LoriP

Only my 2 cents, now that I've killed chat......
9:24 am
herinfernallady

Just let her know that the reason you would like a call is common courtisey (excuse spelling) and that you would respect that she tells you were she is incase there is a need to contact her of have you be contacted
9:25 am
sprite

I agree, Lori!
9:25 am
elder

Sprite don't be too alarmed, the family values will be there and keep here in good stead when she is older. When they are playing they forget too wrapped up in what they are doing and then they feel bad for not contacting you , they just want to get it right, but sometimes they just do it wrong ..
9:25 am
sprite

she knows all that, lady.
9:25 am
sprite

thanks elder, and all, you have made me much less worried :)
9:26 am
herinfernallady

I remember the groundings i got if i didn't tell my parents where and whom i was with
9:26 am
LoriP

I wish uni was here. She still does it, we insist on knowing where they are, and that they're going to be where they say they're going to be. Safety cannot be emphasized enough, and trusting her/him to call, is so important
9:26 am
Vicuna

At ten she is probably lying because she wants to please you and doesn't want to disappoint you, rather than because she wants to hide things from you.
9:27 am
elder

concur with that Vic.
9:27 am
LoriP

At that age, Vic knows. Again, just be consistent, with whatever your house rules are. They want to know the expectations are still there.
9:27 am
LoriP

Vic is wise.
9:27 am
sprite

ok, I can handle that, Vic. Lady: yes, she is gonna be grounded!
Lori: I explained to her a 1000 times, that if something would be wrong, she would want us to look for her right away. So in order to know if something is wrong, we NEED to know where she is.
9:28 am
herinfernallady

Sprite hun does she have access to a phone like a phone card or a home calling number?
9:28 am
LoriP

Exactly sprite, you've answered your own question. :-)
9:28 am
sprite

she can call from each friend's house. All the parents allow that.
9:29 am
elder

Sprite, don't mean to make you feel worse but ... wait till adolescence arrives, its like they have been over taken by aliens or the the devil. ...
9:29 am
sprite

Lori: how?? I know what I explained to her... I just was worried about her lying!
9:29 am
EvaNadine

ill be honest -- when i was 10 + i got caught doing something i know i wasnt supposed to do, i lied my FACE off!
9:29 am
LoriP

An older child may have more leeway, but 10 is very young in terms of naivete of the lesser elements of the world.
9:30 am
sprite

lol EvaN... and you still turned out an ok person, right?
9:30 am
EvaNadine

i like to think so....!
9:30 am
EvaNadine

i think it was self-preservation....who wants to get in trouble?
9:30 am
herinfernallady

Ok. So she has no excuse. Can you ask her why she felt the need to lie. Use feelings. Like It makes me cross and worried when i don't know where you are. Why do you feel you can't call me? Do you think that its embarrising to ring your mum? That kinda thing.
9:30 am
FMitch

I could never lie, I could try but I always blushed so i never got away with it.
9:30 am
sprite

my son will be 12 this weekend and he still has to call home as well. It is fine with me if they wanna play, no problem. I just want to know where they are.
9:30 am
LoriP

LOL EVa? I'm shocked. Shirley not you. :) sprite, I'm simply saying that you seem to feel the message hasn't sunk in, so you must address it.
9:31 am

thanks lady, will do that. :)
9:31 am
Vicuna

Ah, the wonders of the chat word, FM. Here you can lie like a rug and we'll never know you're blushing.

Sprite, as a parent you can only do your best for your children and they will reward you in ways not always so obvious now.
9:53 am
Judi

Lol. That's pretty good, Eva. Although, gum in the hair seems to be punishment enough. My father would have made us walk around with it stuck there and not let us cut it out. Fortunately, never happened to us.
9:53 am

yeah, I guess, Judi. Still, kids are out of control here as well. I must trust my kids, I know, but it IS scary nowadays.
9:53 am

my father was very different....
he once grounded my bother + said he couldnt ride his bike for 2 weeks.
a few days later he gets a call from a neighbor letting him know that my brother has an accident...he was ok, but at the hospital.....

so dad goes to the hospital (as an aside, my mom was in the bed next to my brother because she saw blood + passed out)
when my dad asked my brother what happened, he said "i was riding johns boke + i hit something in the street and fell off + had to get stitches in my chin!"
of course, my dad says "aret you grounded? youre not allowed to ride your bike!"
9:54 am

Eva, i think most of us have done that in some form or another, when little and trying to blow bubble gum bubbles i covered nearly my whole head of hair, no punishment from Mother it was enough, when she then tried to get it all out of hair ,eventually needing to cut bits of hair off... horrendous ..
9:55 am
SamanthaJoy

LMAO
9:57 am

i think dad pretty much figured that stitched (and the wrath that would accompany my mothers return to consciousness) was punishment enough....

My dad had a habit of hiding his illicit gum behind his ear ... Then once he forgot about it and went off to camp with it still there... and came back with a big infection behind his ear. Ewww.

There's a small German town near Munich called Pfilzerplatz, and the town is renowned for producing fine stationery. Anyway, Munich had a problem -- the thousands of stray dogs in the city were breeding with one another and overrunning the city. So the people of Munich banded together and ran the dogs out of the city. Unfortunately, the dogs appeared in Pfilzerplatz. The dogs took over everything, and the mayor decided to evacuate the town. The paper mills were shut down, and everyone left.

But a couple days later, the townsfolk, watching their town from the hills, saw smoke rising from the smokestacks. They knew no humans were left in the town, so they concluded that the dogs had learned to operate the factories.

The mayor hurried to Munich's town hall and pleaded, "You've got to help us! The mills are alive with the hounds of Munich!"

A babble story:
Once upon a time two ac5 fell into a vat of ur4 ac4 causing quite an up6. The od4 was ho6. For a pe6 of time, we ca4’ed about the di4 event, although it could have been di5. One of the ac6 mites was a real do4, some would say, with ar5, the other was a dr4. The smell was ri4, and got ri5 as more time elapsed. Somethin had to be done or a ri4 would break out.

Pe8 ca4 of the building and surrounding ra5 to keep it pu4 would pr4 us to turn off the ra5, get the cleaner material we would ho5, put it in a ca7, and da4 around like maniacs cleaning the place and making it pu5. We were located in an ar4 pr7. There were ci5 clouds overhead. The ro4 of automobiles on the nearby ro4 was an au5 blast causing to6 if one were an id5 and were to tr4 outside. The winds were to6 and pr5 to going out, we would put in earplugs to prevent the au5 ra4 of noise.

The day of the accident, there was an ar4 playing on the ra5. Jim, a chronic ca6, was eating a ca6. A to4 hopped by chasing the mites and caused the accident.

12:23 pm

And is Tim a new Babble addict inveigled into this den of misery by you?
12:24 pm
Jellen

Do the cats count as chaperones?
12:24 pm
FMitch

either that or she has been assimilated by the Borg
12:24 pm
Jellen

Yes, Tim is a new addict.
12:24 pm
Vicuna

Depends. Will the cats step in if you enter too many inappropriate words?
12:25 pm
Vicuna

I see that he's a new addict. The question is whether you are the one who addicted him.
12:25 pm
FMitch

Tension in the Chatlog. That would be a good title for a book, or a play....
1:02 pm
FMitch

Good going cait did you light up at the earliest opportunity after landing?
1:02 pm
Uniquity

Might be an understatement though.
1:02 pm
caitlyn

I had to leave him alone Im nervous enough of flying LOL
1:02 pm

1:03 pm
lshult

bichon, yes it is.....its in the south near Eilat
1:04 pm
caitlyn

Hi Uni, how are you?
1:04 pm
Uniquity

Hmm...a question to any smokers on here. Not knowing someone (ie - a babbler) does it sort ofwork it's way into your head subconsciously that "must be" or aren't smokers? As a non-smoker I always assume others don't smoke as well, wondered if it worked in reverse too.
1:04 pm
BzznBea

pe7/40. pe7/36x2
1:04 pm
Jellen

Hi, Uni
1:04 pm
Haz1558

I haven't read back yet but I made my strategic withdrawal for the usual reason, cait.
1:04 pm
EvaNadine

i have the Pi7 that kind a sounds like a dessert gone bad -- whats the other?
1:04 pm
BzznBea

It's pe8/55x2
1:05 pm
lshult

it's the pe7/40 that I'm missing?
1:05 pm
Uniquity

That was missing a word or two...Hi all, I am well. Dr's appt in 2 hours, boooring. (Regular stuff, no worries).
1:05 pm
BzznBea

That's the first pe.
1:05 pm
redphoenix

I don't think that it does...i.e. I don't assume that someone is a smoker
1:05 pm
FMitch

I'd try and answer that question Uni but I can't make it make sense
1:05 pm
Haz1558

Oh come on, Uniquity. You might at least have some interesting ailment.
1:05 pm
caitlyn

LOL FM I was just thinking the same
1:06 pm
Atalante

uniiiiiiiiiiiii
1:06 pm
Uniquity

I know FM...the little chatterbox space is not big enough for me to see what I wrote and make sure it makes sense :(
1:06 pm
Haz1558

pe7/40 - latin through, opposite of alkaline
1:06 pm
Jellen

There is only one pi7
1:06 pm
Atalante

what she meant was - do smokers automatically assume everyone smokes. like non-smokers always assume they are "talking" to non-smokers
1:06 pm
Atalante

I think
1:06 pm
Uniquity

Well, if it would make you feel better Haz I could turn out to have cancer, but I wouldn't be impressed.
1:06 pm
caitlyn

When did you get home Ata?
1:06 pm
lshult

got it, still 32 words to find tho
1:07 pm
Haz1558

No, I said interesting. Like when Atalante had to have a blob removed from her back and I thought she said she was having a boob removed from her back.
1:07 pm
Uniquity

Ata is my mouthpiece from now on. She makes more sense.
1:07 pm
hurshy

lol
1:07 pm
danf63

Uni...no I don't assume other people smoke. In fact, most of the time when I find out someone smokes, it comes as a surprise to me that THEY smoke.
1:07 pm
FMitch

Ahh, answering Atas interpretation no you don't assume everyone smokes but you can tell if you are face to face and as a non smoker you can smell face to face.
1:08 pm
Haz1558

THAT would have been interesting.
1:08 pm
caitlyn

Not at all as a smoker Im more aware of non smokers and assume that they dont like my bad habit
1:08 pm
Atalante

flying must have knocked some sense into me
1:08 pm
caitlyn

Hi hurshy
1:08 pm
bichon

re 5/12?
1:08 pm
FMitch

Oh dear Ata, we can have that, you might get all serious on us.
Hi hurshy
1:08 pm
Haz1558

Well, here's hoping that terra firma will knock that sense right out again.
1:09 pm
Haz1558

re5/12 - not the real deal. Would not go down well on Antiques Roadshow.
1:09 pm
Jellen

Hi, hurshy
1:09 pm
hurshy

i assume people don't smoke or drink or do drugs or swear, that they are not overweight and that they are my age...
1:09 pm
Uniquity

So it is universal. We all assume others don't smoke. I wonder what other things this might apply to..*ponders implications*.
1:09 pm
EvaNadine

ok, so that gives me CA7, PE7 x3, Pi7, PR7
whats my last 7?
1:10 pm
Atalante

Haz1558

It was a shame.
1:21 pm
Jellen

3 left. Leaving them for when Tim wakes up.
1:22 pm
Haz1558

No, full stop is not slang, it's just different terminology.
1:22 pm
Haz1558

Still going in the Apprentice are, Claire, Lucinda, Helene, yucky Michael, Alex and the one who doesn't know how to shave or speak.

1:23 pm

1:24 pm

1:28 pm
Atalante

so how what why, Haz? What did poor Raef do to be fired?
1:29 pm
Haz1558

Basically he was given the poisoned chalice of being Project Manager.
1:29 pm
G.Clooney

Speaking of corners and cubby's, might I have a word with you hazel, regarding the increased temperatur levels in the cubby with the changing season.
1:29 pm
BzznBea

Got it. thanks.
1:29 pm
Haz1558

They had to develop a brand and ad campaign for tissues. He and Michael set to working out a beautiful TV ad which basically failed to point out that you were supposed to buy the brand of tissues.
1:29 pm
Jellen

Oooh, a poisoned chalice! You Brits know how to do TV!
1:30 pm
Atalante

poor boy. and did he mess up horribly?
1:30 pm
Haz1558

Oh, George. Is the fan not working properly/
1:30 pm
BzznBea

25 left...all 4s. Think I'll take a break...Laer!
1:30 pm
caitlyn

Oh Gorge I didnt know you were still locked away
1:30 pm
Atalante

and michael STILL managed to creep away unscathed?
1:30 pm
Haz1558

They messed up in that they had Sian Lloyd playing a mother to a little boy (why?) and failed to include any shots of the tissues.
1:30 pm
caitlyn

George!!
1:30 pm
Haz1558

Michael is a creep, full stop (or pe6)
1:31 pm
G.Clooney

It's quite warm, and I don't like to complain, but the fan is inadequate to the task of cooling me off.
1:31 pm
Haz1558

Well, if you will keep that laptop going, George, what can you expect?
1:31 pm
FMitch

Stop daydreaming about Haz George and you might cool down a little!
1:31 pm
G.Clooney

Hello caitlyn. To be with Hazel, it's worth it, but hot is hot.
1:31 pm
caitlyn

Haz go and get him a long cool drink and a fan
1:31 pm
Haz1558

I may have to investigate other methods of cooling the cubby.
1:32 pm
Jellen

Tim's awake--bbs
1:32 pm
Haz1558

BRB. (It's not that I'm cross with him, but really. this IS babble time)

EvaNadine

1:33 pm
G.Clooney

Well, I just wanted to plant the seed. I'll return to my script reading and await your response in the hot cubby.
1:33 pm
caitlyn

Dont get too hot and bothered George
1:33 pm
Haz1558

I wouldn't like to say. It might hurt George's feelings.
1:33 pm
FMitch

EvaN Haz is very dedicated to Babble
1:34 pm
Haz1558

Or Dr-G's. You have to keep them both happy. Dr-G might boot me out.
1:34 pm
Haz1558

Yes, dedication, not addiction. A mild attachment is how I like to think of babble.
1:34 pm
G.Clooney

I'll take off my shirt, maybe that will help. For now. Thank you Hazel, and good bye until later.
1:35 pm
FMitch

LOL
1:35 pm
Atalante

awwww hobbit's here for a cuddle
1:35 pm
Haz1558

Bye George. If you're taking your shirt off, maybe I should just check on conditions.
1:35 pm
Haz1558

Talk amongst yourselves.
1:36 pm
caitlyn

I had better see what emails await..there were 39 unopened ,see you all tomorrow
Haz be gentle with him today!!

1:36 pm
NANCY

Can anyone clue me on the ca 6/30 please? Thank you in advance.
1:36 pm
Haz1558

Bye caitlyn. Don't fall for anybody trying to trick you into thinking they're George.
1:37 pm
Haz1558

ca6/30 - ca, a vowel, affectionate term for father.
1:37 pm
kje

look at 1:27 for ca clue
1:38 pm
FMitch

Bye cait good to see you back
1:38 pm
NANCY

Haz, thank you. You are amazing as usual.
1:39 pm

1:48 pm
kje

1:49 pm
Haz1558

rh6 -rh plus the word in the grid descriptive of a certain type of poem.
1:49 pm
ajv74

rh+o4
1:49 pm
Haz1558

Or rh plus the ending of one of the pe8 words.
1:49 pm
kje

TY Haz!!!
1:50 pm
FMitch

Some of these words are hard to clue today.
1:50 pm
Haz1558

You're welcome.
1:50 pm
ajv74

How about pe7/36
1:50 pm
Haz1558

I'm not sure what to say, FMitch! I could get into trouble.
1:51 pm
Haz1558

pe7/36 - first one ends in Spanish day, tacked onto pe4/5.
1:51 pm
FMitch

LOL
1:51 pm
Haz1558

The second one ends in a polka spot
1:52 pm
kje

a German bar?
1:52 pm
Haz1558

There could be painful times ahead.... for cluers and cluees.
1:52 pm
kje

why is that haz?
1:52 pm
KrisE

ty all! I"m lurking while I eat, but I'd never have found all these p's!
1:53 pm
Atalante

there may be trouble ahead ;a la la but while there's moon;light and babble and clues and hard words ...
1:53 pm
Haz1558

Nein! The sort of spot associated with polka, more in terms of material.
1:53 pm
SharonRA

a pretty gem, that polka spot one
1:53 pm
Haz1558

Let's face the music and daaaaaaaaaaaance.
1:53 pm
FMitch

I faced the music and danced
1:53 pm
kje

good song ata *humming along*
1:53 pm
KrisE

Go Fred and Ginger!
1:53 pm
Haz1558

My dalmatian was called Polka (Spangle's forerunner)
1:53 pm
kje

just kidding haz - I got the clue... : )
1:54 pm
Atalante

you had a dalmatian? we didn't know that!
1:54 pm
lexleeanne

thanks for those pe-s guys
1:54 pm
KrisE

I'm out again - back to the salt mines. Thanks all!
1:54 pm
lexleeanne

bye Kris
1:54 pm
ajv74

Ty, Haz! I've got all pe-s!
1:54 pm
Haz1558

It's hard to know sometimes, kje. I'm told I give obscure clues and some people just don't get beyond thinking 'huh?'
1:55 pm
kje

uno!
1:55 pm
Haz1558

Yes, Polka was our bimbo dog, all looks no brains.
1:55 pm
kje

too bad for them haz
1:55 pm
lexleeanne

Go kje go
1:55 pm
FMitch

You stick with your unique style Haz
1:55 pm
Haz1558

You can't please everybody I reckon.
1:56 pm
FMitch

Oh thats for sure and really shouldn't be attempted as madness will ensue.
1:57 pm
Haz1558

Yes, and we value our sanity, don't we?
1:57 pm
ajv74

Can someone clue ar5-s...
1:57 pm
FMitch

Oh yes! well, I would do if I still had it.
1:57 pm
kje

ar 5 - love
1:58 pm
Haz1558

ar5 - adds a vowel to the dry ar4/5 - it ends up with the robot ending. Also great love ar5/12
1:58 pm
kje

ar 5/12 = ar + robot ending
1:58 pm
Haz1558

That's right. You've not had your sanity for a while.
1:58 pm
kje

fireworks!!! thanks for all the clues!
1:58 pm
Haz1558

Speaking of madness, Ireland has been knocked out of the Eurovision Song Contest.
1:58 pm
Jellen

Yay kje!!!!
1:59 pm
Haz1558

The semi-final judges didn't like a turkey singing. Are they showing taste at last?
1:59 pm
Haz1558

Congratulaitons kje!
1:59 pm
FMitch

Congrats kje!!
1:59 pm
kje

thanks - will jet back to work now - see you all later
2:00 pm
FMitch

One has to query the validity of a singing turkey though
2:00 pm
Atalante

probably better than a lot of people in the charts now
2:00 pm
Haz1558

They thought they were being clever.
2:00 pm
lexleeanne

kj - I should have KNOWN you'd own a jet
2:01 pm
Haz1558

Or maybe they just didn't want to win. Staging the contest in Ireland for years on end nearly crippled RTE.
2:01 pm
FMitch

lol but that makes more sense
2:01 pm
SharonRA

help on the ca 6/21 and 6/36
2:01 pm
Atalante

more likely
2:02 pm
FMitch

ca6/21 - orange root veg
2:02 pm
Jellen

DONE!
2:03 pm
FMitch

Congrats Jellen or is that Tim?
2:03 pm
Jellen

Both of us!
2:04 pm
SharonRA

thanks Mitch....don't know why I didn't see that.
2:04 pm
FMitch

Double yay then.
2:05 pm
Haz1558

Well done Jellen!
2:06 pm
Jellen

Double thank you!
2:07 pm
FMitch

So I wonder what tomorrows grid will be like, bigger or smaller, what do we think?
2:07 pm
Atalante

bigger
2:08 pm
FMitch

and hoepfully friendly/easier
2:09 pm
FMitch

Did you sort all things with the publisher in the end?
2:09 pm
Haz1558

I think it will be HUGE.
2:09 pm
Haz1558

And it will be so easy that children in the streets will be lining up to do it and laughing as they get fireworks.
2:10 pm
FMitch

and all clues will be understood immediately? or not needed at all?
2:10 pm
Haz1558

Only the occasional clue will be needed and everyone will get them straightaway.
2:10 pm
SharonRA

is this babblerheaven you're describing?
2:11 pm
Atalante

with no "HUH?"s
2:11 pm
FMitch

You've been at the cooking sherry again haven't you.
2:11 pm
Haz1558

Yes, indeed. We're imagining tomorrow's grid, all shiny new.
2:11 pm
Haz1558

HUH's will be replaced by AH!
2:12 pm
Haz1558

No, I'm drunk on the eu8 of what might be.
2:12 pm
Atalante

and hurrays!
2:12 pm
FMitch

and the whole of babble will be bathed in a rosey glow
2:12 pm
Haz1558

Fish will be off.
2:13 pm
Atalante

stinky rotting fish?
2:13 pm
Haz1558

As in fish will not feature on the menu, rather than that the fish will smell bad.
2:13 pm
Haz1558

No fishy smells in babble perfection.
2:13 pm
meliae

sldkfjsldkfj this is the worst grid I have seen in months =/
2:13 pm
FMitch

but it's Friday, fish and chips
2:13 pm
Haz1558

Unless it's of smoked salmon.
2:14 pm
Haz1558

Then, meliae, you weren't here yesterday for the general feeling of *&£^%$ which many expressed.
2:14 pm
meliae

yes I missed yesterdays, if it was worse than this one I am glad I did
2:15 pm
FMitch

IT was as bad but SO much bigger
2:16 pm
Atalante

how big was it?
2:16 pm
FMitch

umm 310 I think
2:16 pm
Atalante

ow
2:16 pm
FMitch

It has been erased from my memory already
2:17 pm
meliae

hahahah I just found the ID 5/12 word which is exactly how I feel trying to solve this one
2:17 pm
Jellen

Hi meliae!
2:17 pm
ajv74

Swedish Eorovision song was soooooo Swedish...again.....
2:17 pm
meliae

Hiyas Jell ((HUGS))
2:18 pm
Jellen

(((Hugs back)))
2:18 pm
Haz1558

310 usually means you can sail through lots of normal words. Yesterday's grid came with a chisel.
2:18 pm
meliae

just start at the A's and start cluing every word please........and thank you..........rofl
2:18 pm
ajv74

And I can't find au5/12 and 5/14...
2:18 pm
Haz1558

meliae - that's exactly how some people like it.
2:19 pm
Angelsong

hi, all. a much quicker qrid today than yesterday's.
2:19 pm
Haz1558

au5/12 - au plus first letters of French for queen
2:19 pm
Jellen

Hi Angel
2:19 pm
FMitch

Hi Angel
2:19 pm
meliae

ooo found the do 4/6 another good word description lol
2:19 pm
Haz1558

au5/12 - au plus the first letters of the Lionheart King, or the produce of the paddy field.
2:19 pm
ajv74

I'd like to have a hank of Jamieson&Smith cobweb shetland wool some day
2:20 pm
Haz1558

Is that the wool that can be used to make a shawl so fine it can slip through a wedding ring?
2:21 pm
ajv74

Yes, just that.
2:21 pm
FMitch

What a wonderful description
2:22 pm
Haz1558

But it's literally that - I remember seeing a programme (years ago) about it, and they put the shawl through a wedding ring. It was amazing.
2:22 pm
ajv74

And thanks for au-s!
2:22 pm
Haz1558

It's kind of the opposite of aran knitting, where you're trying to get as dense a pattern as possible.
2:23 pm
ajv74

I love also aran knitting. But I can't buy that cobweb yarn from Finland...
2:23 pm
FMitch

mm produces some wonderful pieces
2:26 pm
Haz1558

I don't know if it is available easily here either, ajv.
2:28 pm
ajv74

I've found Jamieson&Smith webshop, but I don't like the id4 of buying from abroad with my hubby's VISA...
2:28 pm
SharonRA

down to 30
2:28 pm
SharonRA

i might get this done, yee hah
2:28 pm
Haz1558

Could you use Paypal instead, ajv? I've never had any problems with it.
2:30 pm
ajv74

I must check that possibility. I didn't even think that option! Thanks!
2:30 pm
Haz1558

I've used it with ebay and it's always worked fine - almost a second layer of security.
2:31 pm
Atalante

paypal rocks
2:31 pm
Haz1558

Did you know that we are paid ambassadors for Paypal? But don't let that influence you..
2:32 pm
FMitch

oh you little fibber you!
2:32 pm
Haz1558

Yes, I'm quite the spokesperson for Morewords and Paypal. I look for their cheques daily.
2:33 pm
Haz1558

They keep telling me they're in the post.
2:33 pm
FMitch

George is probably hoarding them under the stairs.
2:33 pm
FMitch

Nice of him to pop in this evening btw.
2:34 pm
Haz1558

That'll be it. Once these movie stars get money in sight there's no turning them.
2:34 pm
Haz1558

It was nice, wasn't it? It kind of proves to all the doubters that he's real.
2:35 pm
FMitch

*snort* as Ata would say
2:35 pm
MonkeyGames

Hi again! I have 20 minutes or so to stare at the grid uselessly, like I was doing earlier. How are you all?
2:35 pm
Atalante

are you saying I'm a warthog?
2:35 pm
MonkeyGames

Or, ummm, both? It looks like...
2:36 pm
MonkeyGames

Who, me? No, I just got here...
2:36 pm
FMitch

I didn't say that, here I go causing trouble again!
2:36 pm
kparker313

I was all excited when I saw there were only 112 words. Then I got to about 20 and ran out of words I was seeing. I knew I was in for a long day :P
2:36 pm
FMitch

Hi Money
2:36 pm
FMitch

Monkey even!
2:37 pm
Haz1558

Nothing is uglier than a warthog. You are no warthog, Atalante.
2:37 pm
MonkeyGames

That happened to me this morning, kpark.
2:37 pm
MonkeyGames

Money is acceptable.
2:37 pm
FMitch

LOL
2:37 pm
Atalante

I think elephants are. Just
2:37 pm
MonkeyGames

Naked mole rats are uglier than wart hogs. Just my two cents.
2:38 pm
Haz1558

NEVER! Warthogs are the ugliest things ever. Elephants are beautiful.
2:38 pm
Atalante

he he he *giggle*
2:39 pm
MonkeyGames

I agree about th eelephants. But warthogs are kind of cute. And have you SEEN a naked mole rat? Or a babirusa, for that matter?
2:39 pm
Haz1558

My mind is closed, Monkey. Warthogs cannot be surpassed.
2:40 pm
FMitch

babirusa looks like it might be related to a warthog
2:40 pm
Haz1558

They even look as though they should smell bad.
2:40 pm
Atalante

naked male rats are gorgeous
2:40 pm
MonkeyGames

Just... Google... babirusa...
2:40 pm
MonkeyGames

In images.
2:40 pm
Haz1558

What about naked male mole rats?
2:40 pm
FMitch

Ata should that be naked males full stop
2:40 pm
Atalante

the pig in our local farm shop is the ugliest animal ever
2:41 pm
FMitch

I did Monkey, amazing tusks
2:41 pm
MonkeyGames

Ata, you are right in taht such a bizarre miracle as teh naked mole rat has to be beaurtiful. In that way. Only.
2:41 pm
SharonRA

why can't I find the or 4/4
2:41 pm
LoriP

Oh my lord, is that Ata Hari? A sight for sore I's. :)
2:41 pm
MonkeyGames

Yeah, cool critter, huh?
2:41 pm
Haz1558

Come, come, FMitch. George taking his shirt off was one thing, we can't talk about naked males. People might object.
2:41 pm
MonkeyGames

Middle letter is doubled, Sharon. Then a vowel.
2:42 pm
Haz1558

or4/4 - o, a double helping of a consonant, finish with a vowel
2:42 pm
MonkeyGames

It's not a real word, of course.
2:42 pm
LoriP

Naked George? I miss all the good stuff.....
2:42 pm
FMitch

Yes Haz, sorry Haz.
2:42 pm
SharonRA

pi 7? thanks Haz

naked mole rats are quite - unique. ugly but amazing!
2:42 pm
Atalante

LORI!

He was not naked. He took his shirt off.
2:42 pm
FMitch

I'll be good I promise.
2:43 pm
MonkeyGames

Don't have it yet, sorry.
2:43 pm
LoriP

I havta' hang around more. i wouldn't have minded a glimpse... Ata Hari! Are you home yet, or satill stateside?
2:43 pm
Atalante

I be home :)
2:43 pm
Haz1558

This is how rumours get started. Bare-chested Georges get turned into naked Georges and then we have to start hosing people down.
2:43 pm
Haz1558

pi7 - a type of clown?
2:43 pm
LoriP

Yea Ata! I hope you enjoyed your trip, but it's nice to have you home again.
2:44 pm
crpw48

hi everyone, not liking this grid to much, at least i learned a new word for my back side, and before i get off my ca6 area can i have a clue for the di6-27 please
2:44 pm
Haz1558

2:44 pm
Atalante

I;m so pleased to have my hobbit back. But I miss Oregon
2:44 pm
MonkeyGames

Thanks, Haz!

I'm sure you're conflicted Ata. Nice to know you're home safe and sound though. Glad you had a good time.
2:45 pm
Haz1558

But just think, Ata. You're home in nice time for the Eurovision Song Contest.
2:45 pm

This grid was a grind for me. I sacrificed an already low reservoir of brain cells.......
2:52 pm
Haz1558

But tomorrow is going to be a wonderful day in babble, Lori.
2:52 pm
FMitch

Oh you left some behind Lori when you went. I put them in a basket on the side for you.
2:52 pm
Haz1558

We were discussing it earlier. A huge grid, but easy and few clues required.
2:52 pm
AsGreen

a;s done....omg
