sexy shoes at 6 months, a paedophile's delight
2:48 am
sprite

Ata, in my daughter's class there is this girl that has been wearing high heels from kindergarten un5 now. Cannot walk on flat shoes or on bare feet. Dresses like a slut. And in a recent project on school they asked the kids what they wanted to be later and she said: hooker. Easy money and no hard work.
2:48 am
sprite

I am NOT kidding. It scared me.
2:49 am
Atalante

and what do her parents do??
2:50 am
sprite

her parents are divorced, she lives with her mother. Who looks the same and has no apparent job, sigh.
2:50 am
Atalante

that really is awful!
2:51 am
Atalante

*sigh*
2:51 am
sprite

I am not sorry to say they are leaving for France this summer. Her mother's new boyfriend lives there and they are "going to live in a castle'. My daughter is invited to come and stay... and I don't think I can let her go.
2:52 am
Atalante

um ... no!
2:53 am
sprite

I never get between my kids and their friends, but in this case... I am worried about the little girl, and I want to keep my daughter healthy in all ways. Guess it is ok to draw the line here.
2:53 am
Atalante

that kid is going to have a shock when she first runs off to be a hooker. she might suddenly realise it is rather hard work
2:54 am
Atalante

especially as they are moving away, perfect time to just let things slide
2:55 am
sprite

absolutely. Hard work and often very unpleasant, I think. There isn't much I can do for that girl, but I can watch my own kid. I am glad you agree, Ata... I don't want to be prudish but god, it worries me. Kids are so vulnerable and impressionable.
2:56 am
Atalante

absolutely. at the end of the day, you have to think of your little girl
2:56 am
Atalante

what does she think of this other girl?
2:57 am
sprite

And I will. She has a wonderful friend two blocks away, and I am sure she won't miss this poor other friend too much.
2:57 am
Atalante

they can always still write to each other, anyway
2:57 am
sprite

she thinks she is sw5, but very silly. She also told her she thought she was crazy to want to be a hooker. The girl said it had only been a joke. But Caya told me she doubts that very much.
2:58 am
sprite

oh yes, good point. I will tell her that. Writing is perfectly ok.
2:59 am
Atalante

Caya is a very sensible girl, and it's good that *she* sees how silly it is
3:00 am
sprite

she is, I am always so proud of her. Thanks Ata! It had been bugging me for months and your post about the high heels brought it all up.
3:00 am
Atalante

and in a way, I guess it's good that she can already see girls like that and realise they are full of sh**, because she's only going to see more in high school etc
3:00 am
Lorrie_in_SA

Happy Friday 13th Babblelanders!
3:01 am
Atalante

and maybe if Caya keeps contact with the other girkl by letter, maybe that will help the other girl too
3:01 am

Caya can be the voice of common sense to her, I guess. The sad thing is, that at heart she is a nice girl.
3:03 am

3:26 am
KatieMcG

I think it is in all of them now ata as they have to have the machines for people to access their pensions/benefits etc
3:27 am
Atalante

oh thats good. I have parcels to send and I can't face the big post office today. the queues are always sooo long. so I thought I'd head down to a little village one

3:39 am
Atalante

hi lynx and stewie! how's the babe's paw?
3:41 am
lynxxx

Hi Ata, bandage off, stitches still in, all OK, not biting under threat of 'the bucket'
3:41 am
sprite

what was the matter with his paw, lyn?
3:42 am
Atalante

noooooo not the bucket!
3:43 am
lynxxx

He somehow got a 'hole' on the top of his hind paw _ I can only think he bit it while on his bed - and had to have 3 stitches and bandaged up for 3 days. As someone said, he's a boy so he was in a really bad way...such a sook
3:44 am
sprite

awwww silly Stew! Glad it is healing now.
3:45 am
lynxxx

After this, but more because of the very expensive few years we went through with our previous dog (about $10,000 in 2 years), I have now taken out dog insurance for illness & accident - quite cheap $33 per month for $15,000 cover each year
3:45 am
Atalante

yes, poor boy
3:46 am
KatieMcG

I hated having to wash the bucket after meal times, there was always food all over it!
3:46 am
Atalante

good idea. pet insuarnce is the *best*
3:46 am
sprite

think we will get insurance as well. Better a monthly fee than a huge bill at a bad time. Smart move, I think, lyn.
3:47 am
sprite

but beats the hell out of cleaning after they chewed off the bandage, Katie :)
3:48 am
Atalante

depending on your vet, sprite, sometimes you'll have to pay and then getthe money back. But nice vets will just claim straight from the insurance company
3:49 am
sprite

I have looked into some insurances and the one that is recommended most is one that pays afterwards. You have an own risk, and that goes per declaration. So if you collect the bills and send them in once a year, it is really cheap.
3:49 am
sprite

and if something bad should happen, we can send it in straight away and get the money minus the own risk almost immediately.
3:50 am
sprite

how is Stew feeling now, lyn?
3:50 am
Atalante

oh yes, that way is fine. you just need to be able to cover the bills for a short while sometimes
3:50 am
sprite

yup, a little money on a saving account will do.
3:50 am
Atalante

yep :)
3:51 am
lynxxx

He's back to normal cheeky self now
3:51 am
Atalante

and most vets are open to negotiation on schedule of payment / method of payment for biiiiiig bills
3:51 am
sprite

wonderful! He is so lucky to be with you, lyn.
3:51 am
Atalante

yay! yay stew!
3:52 am
Atalante

can we have a photo of him, lynxxx? in your pic?
3:52 am
sprite

oh yes, so is this vet, Ata. Very down-to-earth about things. And great with animals.
3:52 am
Atalante

ah thats good. good vets are a godsend
3:53 am
Atalante

oooo I got an 8!
3:53 am
sprite

I was smart. I knew a neighbour of mine drives the animal ambulance a few times a week. So she knows all the vets. The pricks and the great ones. She recommended two, with this one on top. So it was easy.
3:54 am
sprite

good going, Ata! I got one by adding to a word a couple of times, it was a nice find :D
3:54 am
Atalante

was that the st?
3:54 am

it sounded so poetic, and it's refreshing to hear someone speak lyrically of their spouse, even if it's no one's spouse, and it's just a chap in a book
4:18 am
jazflyn

watcha, Lori
4:19 am
sprite

I can speak lyrically about my spouse, if you like :) Just got him a single red rose to celebrate our sorta wedding day (Friday 13th). He is a darling, with a huge heart, a warm hug, a lovely body and a good sense of humour :D
4:19 am

he is not immortal, though. Alas.
4:20 am

4:48 am

Okay, I ceded that there is an 7, but I draw the line at this 11 business. There are 9, and I cannot be swayed.

4:49 am
BabbleRabble

4:51 am
sprite

my money says LOTS and VERY
4:51 am
Atalante

yep!!
4:52 am
NonoNanette

damned dryer! why does it always buzz when I am busy?
4:52 am
sprite

so inconsiderate
4:52 am
Haz1558

Have a good walk. Spangle is going to the groomers later, so she'll smell delicious later.
4:53 am
Haz1558

Have a tantrum, Nono. Let that dryer know it annoys you.
4:53 am
LoriP

Ignore it Nono, and it will go away.
4:53 am
sprite

Haz, what does the groomer do for a spaniel? Wash and brush? Or do they need to be trimmed too?
4:53 am
NonoNanette

yes it will go away lori but then some things will need ironing!
4:54 am
LoriP

***after due consideration, whilst not acknowledging any wrong doing on my part, there ARE 11 a's***
4:54 am
Haz1558

She gets trimmed, mostly over the body, leaving most of the feathers on her legs and under her tummy. She gets washed in some miracle shampoo that smells for days. I want some for myself. I feel it would keep George here for ever.
4:55 am
LoriP

Ironing? What the heck is that? You people are just sick, sick, sick flaunting these words I'm unfamiliar with. :-)
4:55 am
sprite

he will not leave you anyway, Haz.
And thanks. Getting all information I need for our new puppy-to-be.... King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.
4:56 am
sprite

cannot tell you, Lori, don't know it either.
4:56 am
Haz1558

I don't think you would want to trim the Cavalier, they just need to be groomed and adored.
4:56 am
Haz1558

Ironing - therapeutic exercise in having creased clothes transformed into smooth clothes. Highly recommended except on hot days.
4:57 am
sprite

ah, even better! I love grooming. And adoring is kind of natural.
4:57 am
Haz1558

They demand adoration, sprite. But they are lovely dogs, just not with a high pain threshold.
4:57 am
NonoNanette

nothing therapeutic about it as far as i'm concerned Haz. It is a chore i detest and refuse to do
4:58 am
NonoNanette

on that note i better go take care of the things in the dryer
4:58 am
Haz1558

Ah well. We all seek therapy in different ways. Do you like sewing for instance?
4:58 am
sprite

thanks Haz. Ok, will not torture the pup then. Just stroke it a lot.
4:58 am
sprite

have fun, Nanette :)

wb Lori
5:38 am
NonoNanette

does anyone here live in areas that have laws against smoking in public places?
5:38 am
jazflyn

i do nono
5:38 am
LoriP

Yep. NS is loaded with a myriad of smoking laws.
5:38 am
NonoNanette

where are you jaz
5:38 am
jazflyn

queensland - top right chunk of aus
5:39 am
jazflyn

no smoking in cars
5:39 am
NonoNanette

Pennsylvania here in the states just passed a law that excludes two types of places
5:39 am
jazflyn

no smoking within 10m of a kiddie play thingy
5:39 am
NonoNanette

one is bars that have less than 20% of gross sales from food and the other is nursing homes
5:40 am
jazflyn

crikey that's odd
5:40 am
NonoNanette

the bars i can understand but nursing homes.... come on i dare say 30% of the people in there are there because of the results of smoking
5:41 am
LoriP

There is NO smoking in ANY public places now, even restaurants with decks etc. Old folks and hospitals havta' drag their butts to 15 metres (I think) away from those areas. It's ridiculously stringent.
5:41 am
LoriP

NO bars. NONE.
5:41 am
jazflyn

so as long as you eat nuts with your beer, u can also smoke like a chimney?
5:42 am
LoriP

Stores that sell smokes, havta' have it concealed. NO tobacco products in sight (ridiculous). That change cost vendors a lot of money.
5:42 am
NonoNanette

here in NY state there is no smoking in any public place. There are a few exceptions granted if a business can prove that the law has adversely affected their income but the rules are tough
5:42 am
ajv74

Hello, all! a8 words left
5:43 am
NonoNanette

it is the same here in stores lori.... some stored even decided to just quit selling tobacco products
5:43 am
NonoNanette

hi ajv
5:43 am
ajv74

48 words, thtat is
5:43 am
LoriP

A tobaccanist (sp?) in Kentville, is challenging the law. He refused to conceal his products, and it is now going to court. You can walk in to a Liquor store and see thr products though. It's ridiculous.
5:43 am
ajv74

Yep, I'm a great typer...
5:43 am
LoriP

G'd morning avj. Go go go!
5:45 am
NonoNanette

smoke shops here lori are allowed to display their products but they must not be readily accessable to the customer. They must be handed over from the store clerk
5:45 am
LoriP

I can also walk in to any corner store, and see porn mags. It's a starnge Big Brother World we're becoming.
5:45 am
jazflyn

could it be tho, because smoking directly affects the non-smokers
5:45 am
jazflyn

?
5:45 am
LoriP

*strange even
5:46 am
NonoNanette

that is the very reason jaz and I appreciate it very much .... being a non smoker myself. But I also sympathise with the smokers
5:47 am
NonoNanette

it is a habit that is extremely hard to break
5:47 am
jazflyn

you're right about Big Brother - he's a 6-toed, half blind hypocrite, isn't he?
5:47 am
NonoNanette

yes he is!
5:48 am
LoriP

I despise hypocricy of this magnitude, and also know, Governments will take their mile in inches. The smoking lobby has succeeded and opened a door that can't be shut. You will see that progression with food and fats now. The day will come when there's an underground donut network.
5:48 am
NonoNanette

NY state just added $1.25 to the tax on a pack of cigarettes...... they seem to be taking every step possible to make people quit
5:48 am
jazflyn

teeheehee; must get onto that network before it gets shut down
5:49 am
LoriP

***At risk of getting preachier, Lori steps down from soap box and backs away slowly*** :D
5:50 am

ok lori, maybe i should step back with you :)

After making me do yesterday's, FM, I don't think you have any excuse for failing to start this one.
12:52 pm
Haz1558

Well, avoid calling el5/12 by her name. Don't speak about volcanoes, or needlecases and you'll be fine.
12:52 pm
mamabook3

Hazel, thanks for the clue, but I'm still struggling. Anyone else with a clue for de 7/36
12:52 pm

12:53 pm
Haz1558

Krysten. Plural.
12:53 pm

Bye caitlyn. See you tomorrow.
12:58 pm
Lindrickway

bye caitlyn, take care
12:58 pm
Haz1558

I'm still questioning her priorities, though. First she takes a phone call, next she makes food for her husband. Where does that leave us?
12:59 pm
Vicuna

Third place at best, I'm afraid Haz.
12:59 pm
LoriP

***tiptoes in Super-Duper Stealth Lurk Mode, eating a late lunch, then finishing remaining last 94 pesky words***
12:59 pm

On the other hand, you have been known to take phone calls, yourself.

LoriP

***dang, the shield isn't working*** :D g'd afternoon all.
1:00 pm
Haz1558

Hello Lori! How nice to see you!
1:00 pm
FMitch

You forgot to switch it on Lori :)
1:00 pm
Haz1558

Why would you want to be in stealth mode when we're here? Answer me that!
1:00 pm
LoriP

***resumes eating, prays for 94 words to magically transport temselves in to Babble***
1:01 pm
Vicuna

Good point, Haz. Lori, you've got some 'splainin' to do.
1:01 pm
mamabook3

clues for an 7/32? anyone??
1:01 pm
LoriP

***wonders who stole her 'h', to boot!***
1:01 pm
FMitch

and I had a bath and everything!
1:01 pm
Haz1558

We're waiting.....
1:02 pm
LoriP

The dog ate my homeowrk? Aliens? yes, yes, it's the aliens. Mind altering probes and all that.
1:02 pm
Haz1558

an7/32 - an, three letters of the continent containing France etc, end with opposite of out.
1:02 pm
Vicuna

an7/32 - Haz's icon, or if it ended with -ism it would be a burst blood vessel int eh brain (ending in opp of out)
1:03 pm
mamabook3

thanks for the help!!
1:03 pm
Haz1558

It's probably a good thing we didn't do that brain transfusion last night. We could have cause an an whatsit.
1:04 pm
FMitch

Has anyone seen Ata since?
1:04 pm
Vicuna

(Hark at her, FM! She still thinks she doesn't need a brainsfusion!)
1:04 pm
Vicuna

I have. Ata was on earlier, then pranced off to create Great Ar4/4.
1:05 pm
Alkatr0z

Hiya, When you do an7/32, what do you mean by the numbers?
1:05 pm
Haz1558

Well, someone purporting to be her has been on during the day, so I think she still lives. I still glaze over at science things.
1:05 pm
FMitch

Oh let her be delusional Vi reality will kick back in soon.
1:05 pm
Haz1558

an7/32 means a word beginning with an, 7 letters long and yielding 32 points.
1:06 pm
FMitch

Someone I haven't seen around for a while is Jacula, or have I just not been on at the same time?
1:06 pm
LoriP

Ata's gone? More proof of aliens, IMO
1:06 pm
Alkatr0z

Ahh thanks, I think I just worked that word out thanks to your hints :)
1:06 pm
Haz1558

Four letter words are at face value, Five letter words are points doubled, six letter tripled and so on.
1:06 pm
Vicuna

I'm a little worried about the aliens, though.
1:06 pm
Haz1558

Jacula is on holiday.
1:06 pm
Atalante

i'm back! good timing :)
1:06 pm
Haz1558

She lives!

***sure, blow my aliens theory.***
1:07 pm
Vicuna

I mean, I do hope Ata returns safely!
1:07 pm
Atalante

such perfect timing *smug*
1:07 pm
FMitch

It could be a pre recorded message programmed to activate at the mention of her name.
1:07 pm
Haz1558

Glad it worked for you Alkatruz. Look at Help above for rules or Angelsong's Resource page (under friends of babble below left) for lots of info.
1:08 pm
Haz1558

You're right, FMitch. If Lickety can automate himself, who knows what Ata's brain could come up with.
1:08 pm
LoriP

***kids nagging, almost the same as aliens, back in a bit***
1:08 pm
Atalante

so much for creating great ar**. I ended up asleep with a cat asleep on my hip and a dog flopped over my thighs
1:08 pm
Haz1558

You haven't allowed the kids to be in the house, Lori?
1:08 pm
Vicuna

You were allowing your subconscious to work. Yeah, that's it.
1:09 pm
FMitch

A living sculpture, wonderous ar4!!!
1:09 pm
Haz1558

You'll never get to the Royal Academy that way, Atalante.
1:09 pm
Vicuna

But I finished my design. *smug*
1:09 pm
Haz1558

Is it good?
1:09 pm
Atalante

really? can I see?
1:10 pm
FMitch

Looks sternly at Vi, smug does not suit you , give it back.
1:10 pm
Vicuna

The design looks good. That doesn't mean the carving will be any good, and that doesn't mean the printing will be good.
1:10 pm
Haz1558

Is she not allowed a bit of smug?
1:10 pm
Vicuna

*sheepishly returns Ata's smug*
1:11 pm
Vicuna

No, no, Haz. Not for me the satisfaction in my accomplishments. Not for me the self-esteem of my betters.
1:11 pm
FMitch

Ive dug a hole there for myself, can compliment one without insulting the other, back off to the PB to rethink things
1:11 pm
Atalante

wanna see wanna see
1:11 pm
Vicuna

I'll just go over in the corner and sigh wistfully a little bit.
1:12 pm
FMitch

Me to me to
1:12 pm
Vicuna

Well, it's just the sketch remember, Ata.
1:12 pm
Atalante

1:15 pm

It did that yesterday, too, but I had hoped that it would have woken up with a more positive attitude this morning.
1:15 pm
bichon

all that monkeying, and I didn't see that. TY so much
1:15 pm
Haz1558

You've kicked it a few times?
1:15 pm
Atalante

evil scanner!
1:16 pm
Vicuna

I'll shut it down and restart and see whether that changes anything.
1:16 pm
Haz1558

If that happened to Lori, she'd flush it down the toilet. She was in a wicked mood this morning.
1:16 pm
FMitch

Delicatly plugs Vi's scanner back into the socket hoping no-one will notice.
1:16 pm
Haz1558

And it wasn't even as if she had spent the day at an airport or anything.
1:16 pm
Vicuna

But then I'd have a broken scanner and a broken toilet.
1:17 pm
Vicuna

Hee hee, my cat's doing yoga!
1:17 pm
LoriP

I don't do mornings gracefully.
1:17 pm
Vicuna

She's licking the underneath back of her elbow while standing upright!
1:17 pm
Atalante

my cat turned into a carrier bag earlier
1:17 pm
Vicuna

With her opposing leg stretched out behind.
1:17 pm
FMitch

suddenly everything has taken of a very surreal tinge ... Im confused.
1:18 pm
Vicuna

Umm... you skinned and tanned your cat?
1:18 pm
FMitch

The DoD has woken up and is sniffing the evening air. Something must be afoot
1:19 pm
Atalante

she was playing with it, and was so underneath it that when she walked around, it looked like a moving bag
1:19 pm
Vicuna

Oh, lol!
1:19 pm
FMitch

*snort*
1:19 pm
Vicuna

Who's DoD?
1:19 pm
FMitch

My Dog of Dooooom
1:19 pm
Vicuna

Oooooh!
1:19 pm
LoriP

FM has a Department Of Defense? I'm impressed.
1:20 pm
Atalante

I tried to find a DoD for Haz last time I was in the shop, but they;ve never had any more :(
1:20 pm
FMitch

Tis unique.
1:20 pm
Atalante

it is!
1:21 pm
Haz1558

Speaking of moving bags, husband is always suspicious of anybody sitting in the waiting room with a moving bag beside them. It denotes a snake or wriggly item.
1:21 pm
Atalante

or Small Bird?
1:21 pm
Haz1558

They're usually in either cages or cardboard boxes.
1:22 pm
Vicuna

lol Baby dinosaur?
1:22 pm
Haz1558

No, snake owners favour bags.
1:22 pm
FMitch

Crocodile bag?
1:22 pm
Atalante

ooo. are there many snakes in Ballymena? Didn't St Pat do a very good job? Did his edict apply to pet snakes?
1:22 pm
Vicuna

Crocodile shoes?
1:23 pm
Haz1558

They get lizards and those weird things that go floppy boned if you don't give them calcium.
1:23 pm
Vicuna

1:23 pm
Haz1558

The name will come back, eventually, as Manuel would say.
1:23 pm
Atalante

These snakes are Interlopers From Abroad.

There was an article in the paper about a pig that was frightened of mud so the farmer got it 2 pairs of wellies.
1:24 pm
Atalante

chameleons?
1:24 pm
Haz1558

No, some sort of dragons. (Although come to think of it, some wives are dragons as well)
1:24 pm
Atalante

iguanas?
1:24 pm
Haz1558

We saw the article, FMitch. The picture was cute!
1:24 pm
Vicuna

Did it like that, FM? And what an unhappy pig that must be.
1:24 pm
Vicuna

Komodo dragons?
1:24 pm
FMitch

Duck tapes Ata mouth as the list could go on for every
1:24 pm
Haz1558

Maybe iguanas. Keep on brainstorming - sorry, having thought showers.
1:24 pm

1:25 pm
Atalante

1:25 pm
FMitch

*faints* Haz said "cute"
1:25 pm
Atalante

Haz1558

I don't think it was a komodo dragon. Are they not HUGE?
1:25 pm
Vicuna

Haz is turning into an American!
1:25 pm
Vicuna

Yes, they are huge.
1:25 pm

Okay, the piglet was charming. Is that better?
1:26 pm
Vicuna

No, it was cute cute cute! Wellies are cute! Pigs are cute! The Irish are cute!

1:29 pm
Haz1558

Only around 25% and they're only allowed out on designated tourist days.
1:29 pm

Mamabear!
1:30 pm

Mamabear's been kissing the dragons again, I'm afraid.
1:30 pm
FMitch

Great to see you mamabear, are you well?
1:30 pm
Haz1558

nu8 - the sort of element in a food that your mother praises up as being 'good for you'
1:30 pm

mamabear

1:33 pm
mamabear

1:33 pm

1:36 pm
Haz1558

You're a better mother than you though!
1:37 pm
Haz1558

*thought. I need to improve my typing these days.
1:37 pm
Vicuna

I bring a joyful message of reconciliation for all: my computer and my scanner are back on speaking terms.
1:37 pm
Vicuna

My icon is now the dragon sketch.
1:37 pm
Atalante

yayyyy!
1:37 pm
Haz1558

Good news indeed. No violence required?
1:38 pm
Vicuna

Nope. Just the scanner had to have a "time out."
1:38 pm
Atalante

vi, that's wonderful! really interesting knotwork and a CUTE dragon
1:38 pm
Haz1558

It's a very nice dragon.
1:38 pm
mamabear

scanners can be mischievous
1:39 pm
Vicuna

Not a cute one, Haz?
1:39 pm
Atalante

do you really need the box around the dragon? *just wondering*
1:39 pm
Vicuna

Cute is okay, Ata, but I don't want cutesy. Is it too much?
1:39 pm
Haz1558

I'll have to look up the dictionary for alternative terms of endearment.
1:39 pm
Vicuna

Well, the knotwork will be white on black and the dragon will be black on white, and that's the line between them.
1:40 pm
Atalante

no, its just cute
1:40 pm
Atalante

oh ok, that makes sense then
1:40 pm
Vicuna

That's what I was thinking anyway.
1:41 pm
chic

Hey Ho! Mamab, are you at home?
1:41 pm

yes I am, chixie...
1:41 pm

Wow, chic, that's an amazing watermelon you've got there!
1:41 pm

IM on?
1:42 pm
chic

It was delish, Vic!
1:42 pm
Atalante

he's fab fab fab. love how he interlaces into the knots. you should be smug, vi!
1:42 pm
Vicuna

Of course, I'd probably rather just eat it...
1:42 pm
Vicuna

Awww.... thanks, Ata! *Basks in glow of praise from Ata*
1:42 pm
Haz1558

What size is the dragon?
1:43 pm
Vicuna

The whole square is under 6 inches square, so the dragon's quite small.
1:43 pm
Atalante

wow, that'll be fun to carve out ...
1:43 pm
Haz1558

Then it's remarkably detailed, isn't it?
1:44 pm
Vicuna

Fun, or... Well, I hope it will be fun! lol
1:44 pm
Vicuna

It actually shouldn't be too bad, I hope.
1:44 pm
Atalante

I was using fun in the "fun" sense of the word LOL
1:45 pm
Vicuna

If I try to get any scale texture or anything, that might get tricky. I have to decide when to leave well enough alone.
1:46 pm
Atalante

very sensible
1:46 pm
Kazozz

help with an 7/32 please!
1:47 pm
FMitch

attractive, pretty, delightful, charming, appealing, endearing, adorable or sw5 but NOT cute!!
1:47 pm
Haz1558

an7/32 - an, plus first three letters of a continent, opposite of out.
1:47 pm
Vicuna

Anyway, I'll show you again when it's done.
1:47 pm
Vicuna

FM's back, tra la!
1:48 pm
Kazozz

thx Haz..i was going nowhere with that word!
1:48 pm
Jersey611

great clue haz
1:48 pm
FMitch

Great idea Vi and love th knottage :)
1:48 pm
Vicuna

The knottage is Ata's inspiration. =)
1:49 pm
Atalante

but your knotting - and very different knotting. It's fab. It looks more like the weaving on a cane chair
1:49 pm
Haz1558

You're welcome.
1:50 pm
Vicuna

I'd have preferred it not to fit together so closely, actually. I like it when there's more space between, but... well, that isn't the way it came out!
1:50 pm
bichon

anyone have the last te 5/10?
1:50 pm
Atalante

I like it. Its different ad interesting
1:51 pm
FMitch

Brain goes off at tangents about embroidered versions of knottery
1:51 pm
Vicuna

Cool.
1:51 pm
Atalante

did you ever look at that dA site, FM, with the girl who's studying at the RSN?
1:52 pm
Vicuna

Only te5/10 I have so far is a pl, bichon.
1:53 pm
FMitch

Yes I did, interesting designs
1:54 pm
Atalante

did you see how long she took on them? 100s of hours! *faints*
1:54 pm
Haz1558

te5/10 - combine an infamous Vietnam offensive with the sun god.
1:54 pm
Vicuna

Thanks, Haz.
1:54 pm
bichon

ty Haz
1:55 pm
Haz1558

You're welcome.
1:55 pm
Vicuna

Revives Ata with a glass of cold water applied externally.
1:55 pm
FMitch

I could relate to that. some of mine have taken very long periods but I must say I have never added up the hours.
1:56 pm
Vicuna

Just like Babble -- best not to know how much time it rally takes.
1:56 pm
Vicuna

*really
1:56 pm
Atalante

it just amazes me that you can spend 150 hours on a stalk of wheat with a few heads. because the ne6work is soooo fine
1:56 pm
FMitch

lol very true Vi
1:57 pm
Haz1558

Feeling faint at the mention of ne6work that can take a long time.
1:57 pm
Atalante

150 hours Haz!!
1:57 pm
Vicuna

Need some cold water, Haz?
1:58 pm
Haz1558

No, especially not applied externally.
1:58 pm
Haz1558

But thanks for the offer!
1:58 pm
Vicuna

Darn. I mean, good!
1:58 pm
FMitch

Good heavens, the teabag is 100 years old today.
1:58 pm
Vicuna

Isn't it time you used a fresh one, then, FM?
1:59 pm
FMitch

*groan*
1:59 pm
Vicuna

I'd sing Happy Birthday, but I don't wish Haz to get faint again.
2:00 pm
FMitch

Lets save our dulcet tones for next week when we can really sing with gusto for someone's Birthday, eh Ata???
2:00 pm
Haz1558

Profound gratitude.
2:00 pm
Vicuna

Ata's birthday next week???
2:01 pm
Atalante

birthday? huh? what?
2:01 pm
FMitch

Allegedly so
2:01 pm
Vicuna

Calloo, callay!
2:02 pm
FMitch

I think it's her 50th or 15th, can remember which
2:02 pm
Vicuna

Is it the 18th by any chance?
2:02 pm
Haz1558

Ah yes. The occasion when she tries to get the husband to forsake his usual present-buying strategy.
2:02 pm
Atalante

13th I think
2:02 pm
Atalante

he is still sulking with me about that
2:02 pm
Vicuna

"I think"
2:03 pm
Vicuna

You are being difficult Ata. i referred to The Birthday, not Today! =P
2:03 pm
FMitch

would anyone want to be 18 again?
2:03 pm
Vicuna

And I referred to the date, not the age! Clearly I am a dreadfully imprecice questioner!
2:03 pm
Vicuna

Imprecise typer, too.
2:03 pm
Atalante

I loved being 18
2:04 pm
Vicuna

18 was good, but I would not want to be there again.
2:05 pm
FMitch

18 seems a long time ago
2:05 pm
Atalante

it does *sighs*
2:06 pm
Haz1558

The whole year of being 18 was memorable. It started with preparing for A levels, saw me through starting university and becoming more independent.
2:06 pm
Vicuna

Pre-Babble, though.
2:07 pm
Haz1558

It was pre-computers!
2:07 pm
FMitch

Now theres a set of memories Haz
2:07 pm
Atalante

yep. first year of uni. sooo exciting
2:07 pm
Haz1558

Goodness, the wheel had only just come into fashion when I was 18.
2:08 pm
Atalante

did you have fire back then?
2:08 pm
Haz1558

It really was. I've never been as well prepared before or since for a set of exams and I loved the experience of starting and getting established at university.
2:09 pm
Vicuna

You're really remarkably sharp for a cavewoman, Haz.
2:09 pm
Atalante

I started uni 2 months after my 18th birthday, and I'd been waiting to go for a year (they wouldn't let me go there at 17). I loved the whole year.
2:10 pm
Haz1558

You would probably have been accepted at a Scots university at age 17.
2:10 pm
Vicuna

My game of choice at 18 was Pictionary. I was invincible.
2:11 pm
Atalante

I did think about Heriot-Watt, but that was the only one that did marine biology
2:11 pm
Haz1558

Heriot-Watt is quite far out of the city, though.
2:12 pm
Atalante

I didn't want to go there anyway. I wanted Bangor. And they rightly said that going to uni at 17 was silly, cos I wouldn't have been allowed in any of the bars, the student union etc etc
2:12 pm
FMitch

Sigh Ata and Vi and such youngsters.
2:12 pm
Haz1558

It makes me wonder about the advisability of those maths youngsters going to Oxford at age 13 or something.
2:13 pm
Haz1558

Intellectually they may have been capable but I can't see that it was a good social upbringing for them.
2:14 pm
Vicuna

I don't think it's a very good idea. A great part of the university experience is about more than the classes.
2:14 pm
Atalante

so I bummed around the world for a year and then went to uni. much fun
2:14 pm
Haz1558

I agree, Vicuna. I'm thinking about a couple of specific cases where youngsters were coached by their fathers and kind of force fed through the education system.
2:15 pm
tijani

oa5/10plz
2:15 pm
Vicuna

I don't believe that serves anyone well. I've seen plenty of pushy parents in my time, and their children would be much better off left alone.
2:15 pm
Haz1558

You could possibly argue that their genius would prevent them from having normal social interaction with others, but the presence of their father on campus etc can't have felt normal.
2:15 pm
FMitch

Fish out of water and all that
2:15 pm
Atalante

I agree, Haz
2:16 pm
Haz1558

oa5/10 - a plural.
2:16 pm
Boobear

clue for tw 5/18 please
2:16 pm
Vicuna

GEnius only prevents normal social interaction if it's made to be the only facet of personality.
2:16 pm
tijani

thx haz
2:16 pm
Haz1558

tw5/10 - a birdy noise?
2:16 pm
Haz1558

That's true, Vicuna.
2:17 pm
Atalante

hey, I can talk to you all fairly normally, can't I?
2:17 pm
Vicuna

And then there's Ata...
2:17 pm
Haz1558

That's because we make allowances for you.
2:17 pm
FMitch

Only when the Universal Translator is switched on!
2:17 pm
Vicuna

;)
2:18 pm
Atalante

oh poo. hmmm. *goes back to look in "how to speak the language of ordinary people" book*
2:18 pm
Haz1558

I suppose talking to us is slumming it for Atalante.
2:18 pm
Atalante

yeah, its kinda cute
2:19 pm
Vicuna

HAZ IS CUTE!
2:19 pm
Atalante

(imagine what zenmed would say to this!)
2:19 pm
FMitch

Argh the c word again
2:19 pm
Jersey611

clue for oa5/10 besides that its a plural :-/
2:19 pm
Jersey611

please
2:19 pm
FMitch

LOL Ata
2:19 pm
Haz1558

oa5/10 - if it began with t it would be a plural serving of bread dry-cooked
2:20 pm
Jersey611

ack! thanks!!
2:20 pm
Atalante

brb. need to shove potato in the oven. see? I can cook!
2:20 pm
Haz1558

No problem, Jersey.
2:20 pm
FMitch

Bet it's not switched on
2:20 pm
Vicuna

Let those potatoes know who's the smartest, Ata!
2:21 pm
Haz1558

Don't forget to prick the potato all over. What variety are you using?
2:23 pm
FMitch

I think Ata has turned the translator off
2:23 pm
Vicuna

She's talking with the potatoes again.
2:24 pm
Vicuna

She can't tell the difference between talking with potatoes and talking with ordinary humans.
2:24 pm
FMitch

I do hope they don't start arguing with her this time. It go so messy last time that happened.
2:24 pm
Vicuna

Messy, but in the end quite delicious.
2:24 pm
Haz1558

Yes. The Canterbury Chip Massacre.
2:25 pm
Vicuna

mmmmm.... chips...
2:25 pm
FMitch

mmm mashed potatoes with loads of butter and salt. I can dream!
2:25 pm

Hello cybernan. You join us at a potato adoration moment.

Vicuna

Hello, cybernan.
2:25 pm
FMitch

Hi cnan
2:26 pm
FMitch

I haven't eaten potatoes for weeks
2:26 pm
Haz1558

Of course the Irish love their potatoes, it's all the red-bearded shillelagh men will eat.
2:26 pm
FMitch

LOL
2:26 pm
Haz1558

Are you serious, FMitch?
2:26 pm
Vicuna

That's what makes them so CUTE!
2:27 pm
FMitch

Nor butter or cheese or bread
2:27 pm
Haz1558

You'll fade away!
2:27 pm
Vicuna

Ummm... Have you eaten anything?
2:27 pm
Vicuna

Eating is good. you need your nu8's.
2:28 pm
FMitch

I don't hink so Haz, Salmon, chicken, wonderful fruit veg, salads, noodles beans etc etc
2:28 pm
nDanLia

yes, unfortunately they carry that chemical that's thought to promote arthritis [most nightshade family members have it]
2:28 pm
nDanLia

i always say that's why the 90+ y young old irish men are stooped over
2:28 pm
Haz1558

But still. No potatoes?
2:29 pm
Haz1558

I must check outside to see all the stooped people.
2:29 pm
Vicuna

FM, you're shocking and horrifying poor Haz!
2:29 pm
Atalante

I'm eating a potato for the first time in - actually I can't remember. A month? 2 months?
2:29 pm
FMitch

Nope no potatoes, but am sooooo wanting fish and chips may have to give in soon
2:30 pm
Haz1558

It's probably just that we eat potatoes as a matter of course.
2:30 pm
Vicuna

Actually, I seldom eat potatoes, either. But I had chips last night!
2:31 pm
Haz1558

We do eat pasta and rice, of course, but by and large we love our potatoes.
2:31 pm
Atalante

I eat a lot more pasta than potatoes
2:31 pm
Vicuna

Mostly vast amounts of rice and pasta for us.
2:31 pm
FMitch

droooool
2:31 pm

This is interesting.

2:33 pm

Oh no! Poor FM is about to be disconnected!
2:33 pm
Haz1558

A potato dish which fell out of favour for a number of years has been revived here. Boiled potatoes mashed and then mixed with scallions cooked in milk. It's pretty good....
2:33 pm

4:23 pm
angelinaxox

4:23 pm
Haz1558

ruthy - haven't seen you for ages!
4:24 pm
ruthy

hi haz no problem with pc had to get a new one
4:24 pm
Haz1558

Or, if we6/30 started with s, it would be one of winter, summer, autumn, spring.
4:24 pm
Haz1558

I had wondered - you used to be on so regularly in the mornings.
4:25 pm
Haz1558

Was Hannah Lou your daughter?
4:26 pm
ruthy

yes she is
4:26 pm
ruthy

4:27 pm
angelinaxox

4:27 pm

She was always amazing as well. Does she still babble?
4:27 pm
Haz1558

And congratulations, by the way.
4:27 pm
ruthy

4:31 pm
Mary

4:31 pm
Atalante

ty!
4:32 pm
Haz1558

Seven un and a couple of other u words, both previously occurring.
4:32 pm
Atalante

*continues monkeying un words*
4:33 pm
Atalante

aha got em
4:34 pm
Haz1558

How many words to go?
4:34 pm
Atalante

11
4:35 pm
Haz1558

You have more than 7 hours left.
4:35 pm
Haz1558

You can afford to dawdle.
4:36 pm
Atalante

2 words an hour then :) sounds possible
4:37 pm
Haz1558

Providing you don't come upon an impossible word.
4:37 pm
Atalante

or the list LOL
4:38 pm
Haz1558

You'll probably not have to resort to desperate measures.
4:38 pm
Atalante

I don't know ... I have a 6 and a 7 left
4:41 pm
Christini

Stumbling upon Babble has changed my world. My daily routine, anyway!
4:41 pm
Haz1558

It should have a warning attached.
4:41 pm
Christini

And then once I caught on to the rankings ... oh my gosh.
4:42 pm
Haz1558

That's the road to madness.
4:43 pm
Atalante

brb hobbit wants aw4
4:43 pm
Haz1558

I don't think anybody in the world apart from Dr-G understands entirely how they work (the rankings, I mean)
4:44 pm
Christini

I don't even start if I don't have time to finish, and I hope I outgrow that because sometimes it would be fun to pop in and do what I can on hectic days, just for a break.
4:46 pm
Haz1558

I know what you mean. It does seem to be unfair that you lose more ground by starting and not finishing than by not doing anything at all. Do you use Lickety's list? On days when you just want to find some words you could type your list in there and not send them to babble.
4:46 pm
Haz1558

That way you get the satisfaction of finding some words but you don't mess with your ranking too much.
4:47 pm
Christini

AH, great idea! Yes, I use LIckety's list. I probably wouldn't finish without that as a guide!
4:48 pm
Haz1558

It's a great time-saver - try it some day to see if it works for you.
4:48 pm
Atalante

did you like the way I cunningly included a clue into what Hobbit wanted?
4:48 pm
Haz1558

I did!
4:49 pm
Christini

The chat is as interesting as the game.
4:49 pm
Atalante

now she wants the skin of my baked potato *sigh*
4:49 pm
Haz1558

It can be, Christini, you're right.
4:50 pm
CShelty

wa 7/44 anyone?
4:50 pm
Atalante

oooo. there's my missing W and 7
4:51 pm
Haz1558

If you have wa4/8 - add the produce of the paddy field, minus the c.
4:51 pm
Haz1558

I kind of thought it might be the one you were missing, Atalante, it hasn't been mentioned much today.
4:51 pm
Atalante

oh .... what an - um - normal word
4:52 pm
Atalante

and no definition
4:52 pm
Uneaixoise

4:52 pm
CShelty

4:53 pm
Atalante

4:53 pm
Haz1558

4:56 pm
Atalante

4:58 pm
Laurenh1982

That would be an awesome clue if I knew what prodigality was
4:58 pm
Laurenh1982

lol
4:58 pm
Atalante

go for the waste bit :P
4:58 pm
Uneaixoise

extravagant wastefulness
4:59 pm
Atalante

as in the Prodigal Son?
5:00 pm
Uneaixoise

yeah . . . would never have described him as wasteful but, of course, he was -- squandered everything
5:00 pm
Atalante

I guess so. THat's interesting
5:01 pm
Uneaixoise

so we could say most Americans are guilty of prodigality . . . I like it . . .
5:01 pm
Atalante

yes ... I really like that ... UK people too
5:02 pm
Just1Mar

let's not forget us Canadians...Yankie wannabe's lol
5:02 pm

5:03 pm
Uneaixoise

I'm fascinated by the growing number of urban gardens -- have seen a lot of articles about them lately
5:03 pm
Uneaixoise

Also, people who glean all their food from dumpsters (not homeless)
5:04 pm
Atalante

freegans
5:04 pm
Just1Mar

I stopped going vegetable gardens....everything ripens at the same time...not enough people to give it away to
5:04 pm
Just1Mar

err not going but doing...lol
5:05 pm
Uneaixoise

a friend told me yesterday that a lot of the property in New York that's being turned into vegetable gardens is land that's been seized due to nonpayment of taxes
5:05 pm
Just1Mar

and way to much to for 2 people
5:05 pm
Uneaixoise

sigh . . . sounds wonderful, just1
5:05 pm
Atalante

5:05 pm
Uneaixoise

I'm on the board of a soup kitchen and we'd LOVE to have surplus veggies
5:05 pm
Uneaixoise

thanks, Ata--couldn't remember what they were called
5:06 pm
Just1Mar

but unfortuneately Une I don't live near you..
5:06 pm
Uneaixoise

oh, I know :-)
5:06 pm
Just1Mar

most of my friends and family moved out of this province way back when the poliitcal climate was horrible....
5:07 pm
Uneaixoise

it makes me furious that large grocery chains have corporate policies that dictate that they throw away huge amount of perishables rather than donating them
5:07 pm
Just1Mar

before then, I had whom to share with
5:07 pm
Just1Mar

they donate them here Une...
5:07 pm
Atalante

oh I know. so many throw so much stuff in case, they can't give it away in case they get sued with ppl getting out of date food
5:08 pm
Atalante

are there any AT or AS words?
5:08 pm
Just1Mar

our world is in such a sorry state...and all because of the game of politics :(
5:08 pm
Uneaixoise

my daughter used to work for a bakery and often was responsible for closing at the end of the day--I would drive up to the exit and she'd load LOTS of stuff into the car that would have been dumped in the trash
5:09 pm
Just1Mar

no AT or As....only An AR AU
5:09 pm
Just1Mar

oh and the lonely aw
5:09 pm
Uneaixoise

unfortunately, most of the homeless have bad teeth and can't chew "good" bread
5:09 pm
Uneaixoise

ok, i'll stop . . .
5:09 pm
Uneaixoise

:-D
5:09 pm
Atalante

2 au? 5 ar? am I missing one there somewhere?
5:10 pm
Uneaixoise

5:10 pm
Just1Mar

we send billions to 3rd world countries and can't/won't take care of our own
5:10 pm
Uneaixoise

ar x 6
5:10 pm
Atalante

it annoys the crap out of me, Une. I used to live in a city known in the UK for its homelessness and got involved there with the local politics of it all
5:10 pm
Atalante

aha. an ar then. joy
5:11 pm
Just1Mar

an x 9
5:11 pm
Uneaixoise

i'm all for sending food to countries in need--but it's so heartbreaking to hear about shipments being pirated, resold, etc.
5:11 pm
Uneaixoise

like in Myanmar
5:11 pm
Atalante

hmm. didn't know that could put in past tense
5:12 pm
Just1Mar

yes like Burma.....I mean how despicible is that!
5:12 pm
Uneaixoise

5:12 pm
Just1Mar

or Mugabe
5:13 pm
Atalante

dont get me started on him ...
5:13 pm
Uneaixoise

or allowed to rot on the dock because there's no distribution system
5:13 pm
Uneaixoise

ok, i'll get off my soapbox :-)
5:14 pm
Just1Mar

I think my middle age has made me appreciate so much what we have...and so when I hear younger generations bitching and moaning about their superficial bs I roll my eyes
5:14 pm
Just1Mar

ok I'll join you Une....
5:14 pm
Uneaixoise

12 to go-- BBL--happy babbling!
5:15 pm
Just1Mar

5:15 pm
Atalante

5:15 pm
Just1Mar

5:17 pm
Atalante

5:17 pm
Just1Mar

ohhh is that healthy for a puppy?
5:18 pm
Atalante

yeah, she loooves vegetables
5:18 pm
Uneaixoise

(one of my dogs LOVES veggies!) *poof*
5:18 pm
Atalante

I give her veggies when I can, she loves them all apart from lettuce
5:18 pm
Just1Mar

If I had a puppy, s/he would never get the potato skins cause I would have eaten them lol
5:19 pm
Atalante

I normally do! BUt I cooked this one too much and the skin went like leather
5:19 pm
Just1Mar

of course not raw tho heheh
5:19 pm
Just1Mar

mmmmm crispy skins....the only kind to have!
5:19 pm
Atalante

so she got a windfall
5:20 pm
Atalante

these were beyond crispy to pure leather LOL
5:21 pm
Just1Mar

lol ata...I bake 'em pretty long to the point where the potato inside has almost shrunk to nothing, but I still eat the skins lol
5:21 pm
Atalante

ewwwww :P
5:21 pm
Just1Mar

lucky puppy
5:21 pm
Just1Mar

the most disgusting thing, to me anyways, are baked potatoes in tin foil!
5:22 pm
Atalante

*very* lucky pup. She worked hard today though, so she deserved it. Chased her mortal enemy (next door's cat), walked through the woods for 2 hours to the point where she simply slept for the rest of the afternoon ... its a hard life
5:23 pm
Just1Mar

puppy must be soooo cute!
5:23 pm
Atalante

well, she's a dog really. I've just never stopped calling her pup. She's a black wiggly cocker spaniel
5:24 pm
Just1Mar

they're still so wonderful...if I didn't live in such a horrid winter climate, I'd prob get one.
5:25 pm
Atalante

yeah ... hobbit doesn't mind a bit of snow, but she'd go insane cooped up for days or weeks
5:26 pm
Just1Mar

well people here with dogs don't keep them cooped up in winter....it's just that I hate the cold so poor dog would have minimal outside time then
5:26 pm
Atalante

me too!
5:26 pm
Atalante

she vanishes in snow drifts anyway ... she's too small for snow!
5:27 pm
Just1Mar

now that I'm an empty nester, I was thinking about it...but winter is just too much of a burden
5:27 pm
Atalante

you need acat
5:28 pm
Just1Mar

would you believe that we still have snow mounds here, where they dumped all the snow from all the huge storms we had this winter? It's true
5:28 pm
Atalante

peri, if you don't care much about a certain color, you should get a late nineties/early 2000s corolla.
7:25 pm
hurshy

i am administrative assistant in very nice department.
7:26 pm
hurshy

(i say late 90s early 2000's because nobody sells a corolla that's less than 5 years old, because they are so good)
7:26 pm

ok, thanks hursh. my 1991 corolla overheated last weekend and I really don't have the desire or energy to find out what is wrong with it. I do care about color though. Would like red or blue. I have been reading classified ads on the web

oh dear peri, you should at least get an estimate!

7:28 pm
