Monkey and Sprite, I just wondered, is there much demand for English childrens' books where you are?
4:20 am

Sprite, what they do in group 1 is more equivalent to Kindergarten in the US than to preschool. The peuterspeelzaals are like preschool.

I will try. Last year it was Northwest, but this time it's KLM, in my experience a vastly better flying experience.
4:22 am

KLM is very good, and still offers services to its customers. You could call them and ask. Saves you a lot of carrying stuff around if they can make you warm milk often.

I'll do that. You make a good point. Just got nervous because on the way back last year I pushed the call button every ten minutes for four hours. Nobody ever appeared in my line of sight, let alone responded. But that wasn't KLM.
4:24 am
sprite

I am not allowed to take up any responsibilities other than getting well again, yet, but if you can send me some info through email, I will remember this for later! I love children's books and I love english.
4:24 am
MonkeyGames

Marmar, hit me up again in a few months... I get my degree in February and things will free up a bit, especially with Walter in school.
4:24 am
Marmar

Oh Monkey, I get up and go to them the whole flight. Dozens of times. The attendants have always been very understanding!
4:25 am
MonkeyGames

They were nowhere to be found and I was afraid that if I went too far Walter would wake up (he did sleep a bit on the return trip) and I wouldn't be there. But I shouldn't be such a nervous nellie.
4:25 am
Marmar

Will do you two.
4:26 am
sprite

perhaps, next time ask someone nearby to keep an eye on him and tell him you will be back in a sec if he should wake. People are usually very friendly if you ask them for help.
4:27 am
MonkeyGames

My seat was WAAAAAYYYYYYY far away from the station, too. Might be right next to it this time, who knows! Just hope we don't get bumped again. That turned into a 24-hour trip through St. Paul, instead of a 10 1/2 hour straight shot to San Francisco.
4:27 am
MonkeyGames

Yeah, I should be bolder.
4:27 am
sprite

*hugs MonkeyG* You are fine the way you are, hun. Never doubt it.
4:28 am
sprite

you could ask for a seat near the station when checking in. If possible, they will do that for you.
4:28 am
MonkeyGames

Awwwww, shucks.
4:28 am
Marmar

No, you have to be careful and the child's security comes first. Also, if you see a friendly attendant at the beginning, tell her of your needs for the flight. I know how busy they are, but they usually at least try to help as much as possible.
4:29 am
MonkeyGames

Two years ago we flew KLM as well and yes, they were extremely open to our needs. I stiopped on the way off to thank them for going so above and beyond to make it a good flight. From their reactions, too few people do that.
4:30 am
sprite

lots of people treat the aircrew as lowly servants. A friend of mine used to be a stewardess and you can't believe the way they get treated sometimes. But people like you make up for it. It is great you told them of your appreciation!
4:31 am
Marmar

Ooooohhhhhhh, I should really be doing housework, the place is still a mess from Eva's birthday party on Tuesday.
4:32 am
MonkeyGames

I always thankthe pilot too, especially that time two years ago when he landed us through a HUGE Dutch wind storm. Lots of bouncing and shifting around and flapping about, then suddenly one of the smoothest touchdowns I have ever known. Shook the guy's hand.
4:32 am
sprite

jeez sweetie, relax! If it didn't walk away in 2 days, it won't in another half hour, lol.
4:32 am
sprite

you are special, MonkeyG. *hugs*
4:33 am
MonkeyGames

Awww, gee, I just like to think I display common courtesy, which SHOULD be universal but in reality is nearly extinct.
4:33 am
pinkhatlil

morning all!
4:33 am
Marmar

the kids are about to come home....my sancuary will be invaded. The chat has been a delight you guys, hate to leave. Have a wonderful day!
4:33 am
MonkeyGames

Hi Lil!
4:33 am
MonkeyGames

You too, marmar!
4:34 am
sprite

as long as some people still are courteous, it will never go extinct
4:34 am
sprite

Marmar, loved chatting with you. Have a grand day and hug your kids :)
4:34 am
sprite

hi pinkiie!
4:34 am
MonkeyGames

True. Those of us who do value it bring our kids up that way too. Walter already says excuse me, and plese and thank you, and dispenses compliments willy-nilly.
4:34 am
Marmar

Me too. Bye!
4:35 am
sprite

same here, MonkeyG. And people enjoy their being polite and courteous very much, which might even inspire some more of it.
4:36 am
MonkeyGames

That's all we can do, eh? Set a good example. Which is amusing because I'm actually a borderline sociopath... but that doesn'tmean I have to be rude about it.
4:36 am
sprite

you don't strike me as such, actually :)
4:37 am
MonkeyGames

I really like people. I just find most of them intolerable. Not here, this is a great group. And I lucked out at school that way too. Really all I ask is, well here I go again, some common courtesy. And maybe a bit of thought behind actions.
4:39 am
sprite

fireworks :) And Jac, hun... a delightful vid!

MonkeyG: that is not asking for too much. I feel the same way... if people treat others without respect, it p*sses me off. Just some respect will do... for feelings, for somebody's space and being, etc.
4:39 am
MonkeyGames

There's a really nice girl working at the supermarket here. She'a always friendly. She works too many shifts, always helpw people out. This customer yesterday called her lazy for "choosing a job that just involves pushing a few buttons". Completely unprovoked, and un-called for. See? Intolerable. And ofetn the norm.
4:40 am
MonkeyGames

Yay fireworks Sprite!
4:40 am
sprite

sooo rude and without respect. That is terrible.
4:41 am
MonkeyGames

It really bothered the girl, because she's very sensitive and smart and just trying to save up for school while helping out with family costs.
4:42 am
sprite

comments from guys like that are like potato peels... only good for getting rid of immediately. I bet other people told her to forget it and that they valued her.
4:42 am
MonkeyGames

OK, I really need to get a move on; things to do before my portfolio evaluation! Have fun, all!
4:42 am
MonkeyGames

I did! Anyway, actually *poof* now.

Husband regularly meets farmers who have interesting ideas of hygiene. He had one farmer who sustained a cut forehead and quite a lot of bleeding. He happened to be on the farm a few days later. Blood was still there....
5:46 am

Dried blood, you understand, but not a lot of washing had happened in between times.
5:46 am

Sounds delightful.
5:47 am

It was one farm where he made sure never to accept any offer of refreshment. Always had to dash away to an urgent call rather than have a cup of tea!

you see i didnt actually see it happen, i was told by my neighbours. So i went to the owner, asked screamed and shouted at him, he then got the dog, checked her bum then cuddled her the i started crying. But i think she was peed that her ball had been popped more than anything. She loves dogs
6:26 am
herinfernallady

Jean have you tried the stickyurl way?
6:26 am
jean1953

What is the stickurl way herinfer am not familiar with it
6:26 am
herinfernallady

Pink poor kid. Get him to buy her a new ball.
6:26 am

pink, he should have control of his dogs, or not have them.
6:27 am

Some work sites have nannied any sites with PLAY in it. Stickyurl is the other option here

LOL pink.... that sounds like a nice resilient little girl you have there! Nice job! Hard to get kids who like dogs to treat them with caution... I'm with Lori and have no sympathy for owners who can't control their dogs.

6:30 am

the owner of the dog gave me the money to buy her a new one so, she now has a Disney Princess's. The thing is Lori, he knows his dog is very excitable, but he allows it to roam an estate in the afternoon when all the children are playing outside.Everyone avoids his dog for that very reason
6:30 am

Oh, do now. Thanks Lori!

That is nice of him Pink.

can anyone clue the in 8?
6:35 am

I thought dogs had to be muzzled if they were certain breeds?
6:35 am
LoriP

in 8, word fot bury + how old you are
6:35 am
Jandy

Hi hillary... lori just did,,, scoot down three minutes
6:35 am

*for even
6:35 am
herinfernallady

Yes and so should some people
6:35 am
Jandy

Oh rats... not that one.. ignore me...
6:36 am
pinkhatlil

staffs dont. pitts, rotties, do
6:37 am
herinfernallady

Staffies are the most lovely dogs.
6:37 am
Jandy

it's only greyhounds here.... we fear for the bunnies, apparently!
6:37 am
Jandy

And the Yorkshire terriers and shitzus...
6:37 am
LoriP

Some people absolutely should be muzzled. It's not the breed, it's the owner, generally. Pink, you should look in to the bylaws in your area
6:37 am
pinkhatlil

i actually want one
6:37 am
fairyhedgehog

That doesn't sound like a good law, especially if this dog was part pitt bull anyway
6:37 am
Jandy

Thanks again Lori
6:37 am
LoriP

***I lack willpower to slide chat over and work the grid apparently***
6:38 am
fairyhedgehog

my sister's chihauhau was killed by another dog, so I feel strongly about it
6:38 am
Jandy

we appreciate that, Lori...
6:38 am
LoriP

Gt the in 8 hilary?
6:38 am
hillary

how about second in 7/36?
6:38 am
herinfernallady

Um some pit bulls are giant softies its the idiots in charge of them
6:38 am
LoriP

Somebody stole my 'e'!
6:39 am
Jandy

I think that's why the greyhound rule here, fh... they are trained to chase and catch small furry things... but I'm not sure that's a national rule anyway. I don't think Lynxxx has to muzzle Stewart!
6:39 am
pinkhatlil

when we all moved into the estate one of the clauses was that no one is allowed viscious or deemed dangerous dogs, yet the estate is over run with staffs, (not too bad) rotties, and pitts and the housing wont do anything about it
6:39 am
fairyhedgehog

like herin said, often it's the owners at fault. If you know your dog goes for things, you should muzzle it.
6:40 am
fairyhedgehog

That sucks, pinkhat
6:40 am
Jandy

Absolutely. Or at least keep them on a lead. We had a dog who was great with people but hated other big dogs, and we just never let him off the lead in areas where there were other dogs around.
6:40 am
LoriP

in 7, to look over careully
6:41 am
fairyhedgehog

makes sense Jandy, I wish other owners thought the same
6:41 am
LoriP

garages can do an in*****ion of your vehicle for problems
6:41 am
herinfernallady

My friends dog goes for kids and wheels. So she has an 8 foot high fence and when she walks her she is on a leash and muzzle. Her mastiff has a harness and has been taught not to mouth or touch
6:43 am
Jandy

There was one very funny (later) family picnic where we tied that dog to my father's picnic chair and he saw a German Shepherd on the other side of the park... Went racing off with Dad lying on his back in the folding chair, dragging behind him...
6:43 am
hillary

thanks lori!
6:43 am
pinkhatlil

it seems it takes a child or someone to be mauled to death before action will be taken. Lucky my part f the estate has a garden gate and railings to prevent dogs from coming in. Just on the day lil pink got nipped/bitten someone was leaving when the dog charged in
6:43 am
Jandy

It did slow him down, though....
6:43 am
fairyhedgehog

ROFL but I bet your dad didn't find it funny at the time, Jandy
6:44 am
pinkhatlil

LOLOL Jandy
6:44 am
Jandy

Err... not so much.... slight case of rope burn from the lead, but everything else was okay... went into the family history!
6:44 am
fairyhedgehog

Aren't you going to take it any further, Pink? surely they have to act if a child is bitten, even if this time it didn't draw blood.
6:44 am
LoriP

That would be a sight Jandy.......
6:44 am
herinfernallady

Pink if you are in an estate why the heck do they have dogs?
6:44 am
Jandy

Usually downhill from there Peri. Been there, done that. Timing chain time soon, etc. It's a tough decision to know when to stop putting money in it.
7:15 am

I have AAA to but just the basic plan which only covers 3-4 miles of towing. Also this plan only covers 4 service calls a year. The next higher plan only allows 5 service calls a year. Did not know that. I have had 3 service calls so far and two of them in one week.

7:32 am
LoriP

The research and maintenance for lack of a better word, has progressed so much. Hopefully it will continue to make it as manageable as possible until a cure is available.
7:33 am
Karys

I always told her they would cure her by the time she was 27 !

Daily testing and such has come a long way from say, 20 years ago.

i like your thinking, herin!
8:29 am
EvaNadine

yknow calories only make your stomach + butt fat because you sit down while you eat -- they go straight down and once they get there, they get stuck.
if you stand up while you eat, theyre more evenly distributed...

8:49 am

That is ok FLosey we think alike sleep with the same pillow setting (hard on bottom soft on top) and apprently it was noted have the same facial expresions and talk in grunts and understand them.
8:49 am
Mom

hard to say, the weather center said we might have rain tonight and tomorrow but no mention of severe storms.
8:49 am

carlee, might I say that you are nuts?

That's terrible Mom. I think of you every day. :( Good things from my home to yours.

carlee, wink? is your family from Egypt?
8:54 am
carleekat

am curious mom..does the "news" stations know aout the issue?..sometimes those "fight back" groups on local news channels...get the word out..and the bad Publicity gets the job done
8:54 am
carleekat

no...not from egypt...just a life long dream to get there..almost did ... 3 times..plans fell through
8:54 am
LoriP

Unless it's historic, there's not much hope. Shame them on the price maybe, but even that's hinky.
8:55 am

carlee, then one day you will get to Egypt

hints on the 9?
8:55 am
Mom

yes, Carlee they do. Only places being taken for shopping malls have leverage. State and Federal highways you will take what that offer.
8:56 am
carleekat

do you know the other homeowners getting ripped off..."fair market value etc"?
8:56 am
superflippy

It makes me happy to see sc 6/27 in this puzzle. Not a phantom!
8:57 am
Mom

Oh Lori, can't even shame them on the price. They gave us a "comparable" house that was a two story. We asked that they recomp it for a ranch since that is what we have. They said they would be happy to recomp it but if the ranch came in at a lower price than the two story we would have to take that price so we told them to forget that.
8:57 am
carleekat

if you are a group..bring your story..well written or documented to the news...they might love to go after the state or federal gov't if they have been after the gov't reps on other nasties but unable to pin on them
8:57 am
Mom

bye bye Flosey
8:58 am
Mom

there are many other home owners in the same situation as us. All but one are having to dip into their savings or get a larger mortgage than they have now.
8:59 am
Mom

HI Superflippy
8:59 am
carleekat

then band together... sort of...if u cant get al capone on the crimes..go after tax evasion...let the media do some of the work..make them look like you are being as ripped off as you are
8:59 am
carleekat

worst that can happen is you get what you are getting now...
9:00 am
LoriP

Later flosey. I'm always a fan of the good fight, but I've seen the reality, and it's prob'ally not worth the stress on top of the stress. I wish you health and love in your new home Mom.
9:00 am

if all of you are making the gov't look like criminals...you'd be surprised how the masses will band behind you...

Congrats Angel!
9:02 am
Mom

Carlee, I am with Lori, with the state you raise to much of a ruckus, they will condemn your property and then you get squat.
To continue to fight it past what we already have would require a real estate lawyer and if we won, what we won would have to go to pay the lawyer and if we lost, we would be even worse off than now.
9:02 am
Mom

Several people have actually fought it with "extra guns" and still lost.
9:02 am

but now that we have resigned ourselves to the fact that it is what it is, we are going forward and counting our blessings that at least we had some savings to fall back on.

No sit-in then, I take it? :) Everybody is here for you Mom...the injustice does not go un-noted but it is wonderful to hear that you have found a new hometo fall in love with!
9:05 am

This too shall pass Angel. :-)
9:05 am
Mom

yes Angel, then your daughter can chase the two little ones with a baby in her arms.
9:07 am
LoriP

When I left, I still had 122 to go, and I still have 122 to go. I wonder why that is? :D
9:08 am
Mom

Good morning Uni, no sit in. I did speak with a lady Friday night whose house is being taken and they are having to go $30,000 into their own money or take a larger mortgage. They will close on the house they chose the end of July. Now they are having septic tank trouble what will cost a considerable amount to fix. They contacted the relocation agent who contacted the state. The state said they have to fix it with their own funds or they will slap a condemned sign on the door and they will lose their buy out money.
9:08 am
Mom

oh Lori, you will get those 122 in no time
9:09 am
Mom

choose*

9:26 am

My aunt has a bunch..I believe they are perennial, but I understood that they had short bloom cycles (maybe cuz of heat?)
9:27 am
hootowl

the bleeding hearts? Yes they do. But leaves still attractive as background for a long while. Then they go too. I think it's the heat here in Memphis. A friend in NY on Long Island has foliage all summer

10:00 am

fiona, there's a site called morewords.com which can help if you're really stuck or on a big grid like this one
10:01 am
FionaS

another tip is to open the full chat log in a new tab or window (it's the button on the right above the chat log)

chrissie I always have a hard time finding what I am looking for in the chat log
10:08 am
praise2him

is there a trick to it?
10:10 am
ChrissieDee

hi praise, I use ctrl + F and search for the 2 letters and first number, eg sa7
10:10 am
Uniquity

Praise, if you use the "CTRL + F" function (Basically, hold CTRL and then press F at same time) it will open up a search option. then you can type in specific things that it willlook for in chat, such as "sp5" or "sp 5". It highlights where that is found.

10:22 am
Atalante

what's reverse tie-dying??
10:23 am
FionaS

atalante, I think it's either tie-dying on the inside or refersing the tie dye....
10:23 am
carleekat

u take a coloured t-shirt.....and you make a stencil..in this case..i used the Dove soap..."dove" and put a "stylized" trefoil in its shoulder since our guide group was doing the dove sleepover...
10:23 am
carleekat

and you use dilute bleach
10:24 am
FionaS

oh, I was wrong... Aw well!
10:24 am
ChrissieDee

how do you stop the bleach spreading beyond the stencil?
10:24 am
carleekat

you mist on the bleach and where the stencil lies..remains "solid" colour..and you bleach out finely the colour...and the bleaching fades out to solid colour again
10:25 am
Atalante

oh coool!
10:25 am
carleekat

yeap...our girls "MUST" do t-shirts at every camp..its now a "tradition"....
10:26 am
carleekat

best part is...its So fast...and works like magic...
10:26 am
carleekat

takes each girl longer to place the stencil..and don the rubber gloves and safety glasses..then does to spray on the diluted bleach
10:26 am
ChrissieDee

and no messy dyes
10:28 am

no messy dyes..and..oh goodness..at camp you get filthy.. abit of bleach doesn't "hurt"

11:24 am

It was pretty cute. 7 kids played, and the whole thing was over in under 20 minutes. Their pieces were about 16 measures long, each!

11:25 am

Flosey just clued that. It is the plural of the 7
11:25 am
Vicuna

They both played just fine, and were all excited, so it seems to have been a nice experience. no one has told them that they should be nervous about performing, or uptight about making mistakes, so they were not nervous or uptight.

yes, awful. I had to go down a dark graffiti-covered alley
11:53 am
Vicuna

Beat me to it, BzznBea.

11:53 am
Haz1558

Was there no artistic merit in the graffiti?
11:54 am
Atalante

about as much artistic merit as in the neil diamond album
11:54 am
SamanthaJoy

Hey, wow, did y'all see the news today from the Supreme Court?
11:54 am
SharonRA

no, what was it?
11:54 am
Vicuna

No, what?
11:55 am
Haz1558

I should really read back in the chat log for you've probably covered all the details before.
11:55 am
SamanthaJoy

The US Supreme Court has ruled that prisoners held at Guantanamo have a right to challenge their cases in civilian courts
11:55 am
FMitch

No we were waiting for you Haz
11:55 am
Vicuna

Wow!
11:56 am
Haz1558

That was kind of you. I've had a busy afternoon getting an injection, finding a school and buying a new case for my glasses. And you thought my life was dull.
11:56 am
Atalante

ooo what sort of injection? yellow fever?
11:56 am
Boobear

good afternoon all
11:56 am
Vicuna

No, Haz, we never thought it was dull! Why only the other day you were hobnobbing with Charles and Camilla...
11:57 am
FMitch

Umm how careless of you to misplace the school in the first place!

Interesting Sam.
11:57 am
Vicuna

And then there is the exciting feud with Tesco's...
11:57 am
Haz1558

No, the yellow fever one is still okay, it lasts for 10 years. It was a Hepatits A one. I was very brave.
11:57 am
Vicuna

And all the funerals!
11:57 am
Vicuna

And dogs with internal undergarments!
11:57 am
SamanthaJoy

Also, some brain has come up with an E. coli PATCH to prevent diarrhea for vacationers. It's been a surprising news day.
11:58 am
Haz1558

True - when you put it like that, Vicuna. It's riveting, really.
11:58 am
Vicuna

There seems to be no end to the excitement of Haz's life!
11:58 am
Haz1558

But I didn't have to venture down alley ways today. Atalante had a much more exciting time.
11:58 am
Vicuna

The percentage of my news that I receive from Babble is sometimes alarming.
11:59 am
FMitch

lol
11:59 am
Atalante

oh hep A. yes. ow.
11:59 am
Haz1558

The misplaced school - daughter 1 has a job interview on Monday in a country school. We needed to find it. Some kind person had removed the sign at the end of the road.
12:00 pm
FMitch

Ahh v.g planning ahead 8/10
12:00 pm
Vicuna

Signs can be such dangerous things.
12:00 pm
Haz1558

We thought it wouldn't hurt to have a dummy run.
12:01 pm
Vicuna

Don't call daughter 1 a dummy!
12:01 pm
FMitch

Please send good luck wishes for Monday
12:01 pm
Haz1558

I've just re-read that sentence. I do hope the PC police aren't reading this.
12:02 pm
Haz1558

I will - it would be lovely for her to get the job, but we're trying not to get our hopes built up too much.
12:03 pm
Vicuna

*muses* Every time there's an election here, we always have at least one dummy run.
12:03 pm
Atalante

usually 2
12:03 pm
Vicuna

Often 5 or 6.

Haz1558

Hello OrangeCat.
12:05 pm
Haz1558

Because it IS possible to lose patience with the chat log.
12:05 pm
Vicuna

*innocently* Is it?
12:05 pm
Haz1558

I've been told so ,anyway.
12:06 pm
Haz1558

(Even more innocently) Apparently.
12:06 pm
FMitch

*zips mouth*
12:06 pm
Vicuna

I don't know why it won't accept "renag." that, after all, is the best way to nag.
12:08 pm
Atalante

ooooo Ankhorite has a vet question in her LJ concerning dogs' eyes and blood and clots and all sorts of interesting stuff
12:08 pm
FMitch

I didn't realise that you can't give blood if you have had a transfusion, makes sense I suppose. Was hoping to be able to donate but cant an dI have a rareish grouping.
12:09 pm
Haz1558

I used to give blood but I'm no longer acceptable because I had a pre 1980 something transfusion.
12:09 pm
Atalante

here: http://tinyurl.com/6qmobr for anyone *coughs* Haz to look at
12:09 pm
Vicuna

My brother used never to be allowed to give because he was born in sub-Saharan Africa. But I think they've added a statute of limitations to that one.
12:09 pm
Atalante

I can't give blood because of possible mental trauma associated with it. And yes, that's actually what the Blood people say! I want to donate!
12:10 pm
FMitch

Oh? is it pre 1980s Haz, I must double check what I read.
12:10 pm
Vicuna

Well, we wouldn't want you to have any mental trauma, Ata. And besides, who knows what the 5% chocolate might do to recipients? (Make them very happy, probably.)
12:10 pm
Haz1558

I gave 17 pints before they said no, on the grounds of some antibodies or something, and then no again on the grounds that I had a bransfusion in 1984.
12:10 pm
Atalante

yes, its pre when they started filtering transfusions well
12:11 pm
Haz1558

I don't think there should be a problem if you had a transfusion after screening came in for nvCJD.
12:11 pm
Atalante

(and hep / hiv)
12:12 pm
kristinc

hey all...
is that a "brainfusion" in '84 Haz? :)
12:12 pm
Vicuna

That's how I read it, kristinc.
12:12 pm
FMitch

LOL kristinc I had just read it that way too!
12:12 pm
Haz1558

GET YOUR EYES TESTED!
12:13 pm
SamanthaJoy

phantom: spinster
12:13 pm
Vicuna

All those who believe Haz had a brainsfusion, say "aye."
12:13 pm
kristinc

I just logged in and (this is how dumb I am)...I think...wow, I didn't know they could do brain transfusions. I need my eyes tested and some coffee Haz :)
12:13 pm
FMitch

We are not deaf either, you know!
12:13 pm
FMitch

*aye*
12:13 pm
kristinc

I :)
12:14 pm
Vicuna

*aye*
12:14 pm
Atalante

definitely aye!
12:14 pm
Haz1558

But look. It might conceivably look like bransfusion but it lacks the i to make a brain.
12:15 pm
Vicuna

Maybe it is YOU who lack the i to make a complete brain. maybe the brainsfusion was incomplete. Ever thought of that?
12:15 pm
Haz1558

Brain transfusions might not be a bad idea, however.
12:15 pm
FMitch

Anyway, didn't you want to ask Haz an question Ata?
12:16 pm
kristinc

again, I initially thought...not too bad a plan (probably why she is good at Babble) :)
12:16 pm
Haz1558

I'd want something to make me not glaze over when science things are discussed.
12:16 pm
kristinc

yes, sorry...done bringing conflict into an otherwise peaceful chat *goes back into her corner*
12:16 pm
Haz1558

PHone....
12:16 pm
Atalante

that silenced her
12:17 pm
caitlyn

Evening all..just got back on line after not having a telephone line for 2 1/2 days (the whole street was off )
12:17 pm
Vicuna

Conflict? That was nothing but joy and hilarity, kristinc. Come out of that corner, and come out swinging!
12:17 pm
FMitch

ditto ditto Vi
12:17 pm
Atalante

I did. She probably didn't notice. What with only having 1/2 a brain
12:18 pm
FMitch

Evening cait
12:18 pm
Vicuna

More than half. All she's really missing is the i, which is 20%.
12:18 pm

Nah, when I don't like someone I just go away. You know we love you, Haz.

12:28 pm
FMitch

Wow v different style to the one I am familiar with.
12:28 pm
Vicuna

LOL, Ata! Ata's giving me a hard time because I have declared my abbhorance of vampires. (No offense, Caitlyn.)
12:28 pm
kristinc

Haz1558

It's the size of your brain. Your head finds it hard to cope.
12:37 pm
Atalante

it certainly wouldn't surprise me
12:37 pm
FMitch

loooool
12:37 pm
Marmar

Ata, my brother always suggests drinking a big glass of water when you have a headache, that most of them are caused by light dehydration which most of us walk around with most of the time.
12:38 pm
Vicuna

Maybe we need to tranfuse Ata's I into Haz and equalize the pressure.
12:38 pm
Haz1558

Yes! Then i'd know about science things!
12:38 pm
caitlyn

Oh what a thought Vi
12:38 pm
Atalante

I dont' want Haz's lack of brains!!!

Hi Marmar
12:39 pm
Haz1558

It's a one-way transfusion, Ata. I'd be the equivalent of a leech on your brain.
12:39 pm
Marmar

Hi FMitch!
12:39 pm

We would leave you the smugness Ata
12:40 pm
Atalante

Mystery - to build again
12:40 pm
Vicuna

Let's see... FM, have you the rubber tubing?
12:40 pm
caitlyn

But George would want Ata instead of Haz
12:40 pm
Haz1558

And just think - you could say 'Yah boo' to the blood transfusion people.
12:41 pm
FMitch

confirm, rubber piping and large ladle
12:41 pm
Haz1558

We've got a drill and I can get the anaesthetic.

12:42 pm

Look at this diagram. Do you think that shows tab A going into slot B, or the removal of tab A from brain C?
12:42 pm
Vicuna

Great, caitlyn, but mind you stay away from the blood.
12:42 pm
Haz1558

Which way up are you holding the diagram?
12:43 pm
caitlyn

You have got it upside down Vi
12:43 pm
FMitch

Hmmm, hold it the other way up Vi and then it will make sense
12:43 pm
Vicuna

Ah, that's it, Haz. i think North os meant to be that way.
12:43 pm

12:44 pm

I think it goes up the nose, like how Egyptians did their mummification thing.
12:44 pm
Haz1558

And there I thought Atalante was all for helping people.
12:45 pm
Haz1558

That makes sense. You have tissues to hand, Ata?
12:45 pm
pabtrek

thanks FMitch
12:45 pm
Atalante

My brains are not coming out through a colonic! OR nose! though, actually, would that clear my sinsuses?

12:46 pm
Haz1558

Your sinuses would thank you.
12:46 pm
Atalante

oh well, at least there would be that
12:46 pm
Haz1558

Isn't she a wonder?
12:46 pm
Vicuna

No headache, clear sinuses, and ignorance is bliss. You'll love this, Ata!
12:46 pm
Atalante

still not sure about giving my beautiful Capt Jack to Haz. She'd hide him in a cupboard
12:47 pm
FMitch

pab sounds like a young Hollywood actress but spelt wrongly
12:47 pm
Haz1558

I only want the part of Ata's brain that makes her clever in science. I'll not sign the consent form otherwise.
12:47 pm
caitlyn

You have to decide soon Ata they are ready to operate
12:47 pm
FMitch

OHH in that case Haz you want her big toe!
12:47 pm
Atalante

Can I have Haz's cheesecake making brain bit?
12:48 pm
Haz1558

I was going to say - overdose of birds or what?
12:49 pm
Haz1558

I can give you the recipe, Atalante, anybody can follow a recipe.
12:49 pm
caitlyn

Of couse you can Ata

Vicuna

Oh... interesting!
12:50 pm
Atalante

12:51 pm
Haz1558

Squash rackets don't sparkle!
12:51 pm
caitlyn

Vi I think they are ready to go ahead ,have they signed the consent forms
12:51 pm
Vicuna

Haz has many talents of which I had had no inkling.
12:51 pm

Well done Monkey

Haz1558

I'd need to find it first.
12:57 pm
Judi

What a fish leaves behind in the sand? Maybe that's supposed to be "fine print".
12:57 pm
Vicuna

That's what you get when you rub a mackerel with in4/8 and slap it on a clean paper.
12:57 pm
FMitch

Its what fishes leave behind as evidence ina crime
12:57 pm

Fantastic - I now need 3 weeks to recover
1:09 pm

1:12 pm
Haz1558

It's those children again. Vi will keep going and getting them out of school.
1:12 pm
Vicuna

Alas, FM, it is I who shall be thrown out to the mercies of the cruel world.
1:12 pm
Vicuna

I never learn, do I, Haz?

1:13 pm
Atalante

1:13 pm
Haz1558

Don't they do 24 hour storage facilities for children?
1:13 pm
Vicuna

Thing is the school knows where to find me in case of "emergency."
1:13 pm
LoriP

Chidlren are so needy. Like 3 squares a day is a law or something.
1:13 pm
Haz1558

You don't mean you gave your real number?
1:13 pm
FMitch

School logs onto babble and tells you to come get them Vi?
1:13 pm
Haz1558

Only amateur mothers do that.
1:14 pm
Vicuna

I don't think they'll believe the old, "Children? What children?" ploy.
1:14 pm
LoriP

LOL Vic, 1st rule, never reveal your real name and address....
1:14 pm
Vicuna

*hangs head* If only I had had all this good advice before it was too late.
1:15 pm
Haz1558

We came along just too late, didn't we?
1:15 pm
FMitch

*tightens grip on Vi's ankle*
1:15 pm
Vicuna

And the kids are now old enough to split on me -- THEY know my real name and telephone number.
1:15 pm
Atalante

nooooooo
1:15 pm
Haz1558

Little monsters.
1:16 pm
LoriP

Never a specific number either. Just be vague with the amount of children you have.
1:16 pm
Atalante

you mean you gave *them* your real name?
1:16 pm
Vicuna

Although, come to think of it, I AM an amateur mother. I mean, no one pays me to do this!
1:16 pm
Haz1558

You can trust nobody. Not even your own kith and kin.
1:17 pm
Vicuna

And one thing is for certain: I am NOT doing this again in an attempt to get it right the next time!
1:17 pm
Haz1558

1:17 pm
Atalante

1:17 pm

1:20 pm

1:20 pm

1:21 pm
Haz1558

Sugar overload! Where's Caitlyn when you need her?
1:21 pm

1:21 pm
LoriP
