I've told people over and over -- the themes can be found on Licket's page or if you have Expert, right up there in Resources. Babbler in England has been keeping track but is getting discouraged. I wish peope would participate but many deliberately ignore them.To me, they are half the fun, but obviously most don't care. So be it.

goodwick, it happens to all of us. If you use a windows machine, you might ask Lickety for his Babble Expert. It solves the problem brilliantly.

and if not... don't worry about it, lol.
4:08 am
goodwick

?
4:09 am
sprite

Lickety has developed a browser especially for Babble. It has a window you can use for chat AND for entering words. When you enter one word, it goes to the list. If you enter more words, it goes to the chat. It is great.
4:10 am
goodwick

thanks sprite will go on after and check it out
4:10 am

G'd morning anyones I missed, have a good one to anyone who left, and Wowsers to anyone who finished!
4:37 am
FMitch

I think jilli was very tired and poss feeling down she just came out and said that basically she wasn't liking babble anymore and was sad that no one seemed to follow the themes anymore.
4:37 am
elder

Hello LoriP..:)
4:37 am
LoriP

Jilli has noticed (and I am one) the lack of following icon themes, for quite some time.
4:38 am
loredana

check the chat sprite about 2am i think i nearly fell off my chair but I must admit I have picked up she was not her usual self she said she had been helping someone and another said she was not very friendly which is not jilli as you know
4:38 am
sprite

I never followed them. But I am so sorry to hear jilli is not happy here anymore. We cannot miss your jilli :(
4:39 am
sprite

jilli not friendly? She is one of the gentlest persons I know.
4:39 am
meliae

some people are just not computer literate enough to do it, others barely have time for the grid, and some are just not interested I do not think it is a reflection on Jilli just the ways of people in general
4:39 am
LoriP

Hi elder! Sometimes, when one has other thing going on in real life, the escapism that Babble provides, can be precarious as well. :(
4:39 am
elder

I have never followed the Icon themes.I thought it was a choice one could make and also I am extremely bad at techno stuff..
4:39 am
loredana

no we cant I was truely panic stricken and felt ashamed because i had picked up she wasnt her usual self and didnt do all I could of
4:39 am
FMitch

Due to time differences she does miss out on the fact that there are others that do follow the theme quite regularly though.
4:39 am
LoriP

I will read chat later, and see what was up.
4:41 am
FMitch

I always look at jilli's icons as they have such wonderful stories with them, especially when they are about her family

Great, now I get to be more worried. Just called the doctor, and teh secretary said thet the lab results look like Walter doesn't have mono but that the doctor said the results were very unclear so they will call the lab and get it figutred out and then call me. I was hoping for a just plain positive test for teh mono so I would know what was going on ands that he is in the recovery phase. Argh!
5:11 am
sprite

*hugs MonkeyG*
Take a deep breath, dear one. This is scary, but you will have to wait until they know more.
5:12 am
elder

Monkey, maybe what he has is starting to wain and that made the tests unclear..
5:12 am
MonkeyGames

I took him to daycare today because teh doctor said he could go and I had to see the dermatologist but he was so tired and feeling down. Sigh. I can keep him home tomorrow.
5:12 am

Could be, Elder. Could be.

Feeling bad about decisions you already made is a waste of precious energy, darling. He will have lots of distraction at the day care, and if he is really not well, they will call you. Relax.
5:20 am

My son, almost 4. He's had a sore throat, fatigue, headaches, etc. for four weeks. The doctor said his mono test looks negative but they need to call the lab to clarify things and call me back. If it's not mono then it's a mystery and that I do not like

Yes, today it's really getting to me. I really need to know what is wrong so we can just fix it, get him rest, whatever he needs.
5:24 am

my back is nothing to worry about, elder, just a matter of being overly tensed for a while and then making a wrong move. And since I learned not to go on as normal, but take it easier until it is better, it will be over soon.

Just answered an e-mail from my husband. Elder, what's heppening is that I did call, and the secretary said the ersults are in but did not look like mono but were very confusing. Lab results should not be very confusing, so the doctor is trying to get in touch with the lab to clarify things. Then I will be called back. I know these things take time. OK, now I really am going to go cook something and eat it. Back soon. Will keep you posted too. This is the only chat I've ever seen where people actually CARE and it means a lot to me to have come to know you folks.

hi Scrabbler, good to see you! Copy this grid, you can work all holiday on it, lol.
I wish you and yours a grand time and lots of relaxation.
6:19 am
MonkeyGames

OK, doctor called. Turns out the lab results show that he's in general OK for all kinds of esoteric stuff like the sedimentation rate and so forth, but that they don't yet have a definitive answer on teh EBV (the mono virus). When she said that it did not look like mono, it was based on the lack of something or other I looked up yesterday in teh sample, an dit is true that only 50 - 75% of childdren get that in the blood if it is mono, but almost all adults do. So I need to call again tomorrow, and if it has not yet come in I need to call my own doctor Monday when he's back from his vacation. Now I will e-mail all this to my husband. BRB.
6:19 am
Scrabbler

MG, are you still here? Did you get the results of Walter's blood test for mono?
6:20 am

O, hi Scrabbs; crossed posts!

A friend and I are leaving from here. My sister in New Jersey will drive up tomorrow, and 2 cousins will join us on Sunday for the day.
6:21 am
MonkeyGames

Scrabbs, he also had two great days and was almost his old self again yesterday, and today was crashed out, pale, tired, depressed. But I had to go to the dermatologist so he had to go to daycare.
6:21 am
Scrabbler

MG--they probably did a heterophile test and not specific EBV antibody titers.
6:22 am
MonkeyGames

Yeah, that's the one. I was reading about it yesterday when I finally found a website geared toward professionals, meaning it did not gloss over stuff or talk down.
6:22 am
Scrabbler

Even if the test is negative, it could be a "false negative". It sure sounds like he has a mono-like illness and the treatment = time + rest.
6:22 am
MonkeyGames

They did also do the titers and that's the result they said takes longer and we are now waiting on.
6:22 am
MonkeyGames

If it is not mono what should I look for? Toxo?

Good to know. As a human I do feel an overwhelming need to label it, but what you say reassures me greatly.
6:24 am
Scrabbler

By age 40 99% of people are immune to EBV--we all get exposed as it is an ubiquitous virus and infected people excrete the virus in their saliva for up to 6 mo after the acute infection.

Epstein-Barr. It's all over the place but does not always cause mononucleosis. It's a herpes virus (#4, I think...)
6:26 am

isn't it known as the illness of Pfeiffer as well?
6:27 am

Yes, that's it. It is transmissable at random intervals for a person's whole life. It's simply unavoidable.

oh yes, same here. When my daughter was taking in for an appendicitis, I was like a lioness. And then it turned out to be a very severe bladder infection with the appendix taken out for nothing. I drove everyone crazy with demanding to know every single detail.

True. She's back. Sorry I called you Scrabbler, Sprite. There's nothing really important at my internship place now, especially with the boss having his breakdown or whetever it is (he actually dug some candy out of the trash the other day...). But I SOOO appreciate the thought, and if anything comes up I will let you know. Thank you.
6:35 am
MonkeyGames

Maybe I'm extra jumpy anyway; four years is not enough time to get over Walter having had a collapsed lung and being critical when he was a day old. Since then he's been healthy as, well, something really darned healthy, but it never really left me...
6:35 am
sprite

don't be sorry, I was honored, I like Scrabbler a lot :)
And be sure to let me know. Don't hold back out of fear it will be too much for me, because I can be the judge of that. I will send you my telephone number. You can call me if you need me.

The smartest thing we ever did was pay off our mortgage years ago.
7:56 am
Uniquity

I read an article in our NS paper the other day saying McCain got ahead in the polls recently because American voters think Obama is "too skinny and fitness oriented". He doesn't fit in with the overweight crowd, so analysts say he will lose all middle class votes, female votes and overweight votes.

Kerry was a Viet Nam war hero. There were boats called Swift Boats and a bunch of Republican Veterans claimed that Kerry exaggerated his heroics on the Swift Boats. [at least that's how I recall it]
7:57 am

I can ask questions and word them the way I know I can get the answer I want about 70-80% of the time - polls are stupid and have become too much a part of out political culture - who the hell cares
7:58 am

I don't think Obama is behind McCain. The Conventions haven't even happened yet. Can't tell til after that
7:58 am

Although, they also said Obama is trying to eat more of the "bad for you" food offered to him to appease potential voters.

uni - I have followed these campaigns pretty close and haven'theard any of that - not sure I beleive it
7:59 am

MrP, from the ads/info I see in Canada...the elections/campaigns often get nasty. I know the Tories tend to always start out quickly with a smear campaign (in Canada) and then the others follow suit and it becomes a trash heap.

8:35 am
kje

hi again elder
8:36 am
kje

that is my least favorite tea harp - although it is good for smoking fish
8:36 am
herinfernallady

blast and sod. My old childhood home is up for rent again and i can't go and see it
8:36 am
Dorens

i am good elder, just returned from a week in florida, and going to jersey shore this afternoon. how are you?
8:37 am
harpjane

it's good for smoking duck too, or throw it on your bbq coals for just about anything!
8:37 am
kje

blast and sod - where did that come from - such a funny saying
8:38 am
kje

yes - it is better for smoking things than drinking, me thinks
8:38 am
Dorens

certainly tastes like a smoky drink
8:38 am
harpjane

well it makes TERRIBLE iced tea!
8:38 am
harpjane

so tell me our new theme and i'll change it!
8:38 am
elder

Dorens, how lovely.. for you. I am fine thanks apart from companies who insist that you have to go through their telephone call Centers .. AAh :)
8:38 am
herinfernallady

well its polite thats for sure
8:38 am
kje

have no idea harp
8:39 am
Dorens

phoning companies has become one of the most frustrating things of our time
8:39 am
BerniceQ

who determines the themes?
8:39 am
harpjane

i'm too lazy to go look, they are listed on Babbler's profile
8:39 am
Dorens

check lickety's clues... he puts them there, but babbler determines them
8:39 am
flosey

good morning everyone
8:39 am
Dorens

morning flosey
8:39 am
harpjane

if you have a suggestion tell babbler
8:39 am
Judi

Elder - are your call centers staffed by people who can barely speak English? We have that problem here in the states. Calls are routed to Pakistan or some other "stan". Sounds like gibberish to me.
8:40 am
herinfernallady

wwaves hello. We sugest them to babbler
8:40 am
elder

Dorens, I have trouble so can't imagine the problems elderly and infirm have to go through.
8:40 am
flosey

you can find the themes in "resources" across the top of screen
8:41 am
flosey

today's theme is coffee
8:41 am
Judi

Coffee. I'll drink to that!
8:42 am
Dorens

ohhhhhh coffee?/ i'll go find one. i lovvvvvve coffee
8:42 am
flosey

me too, my favourite drink
8:42 am
elder

Judi, this does happen, but i have actioned, ..changed banks etc to ensure the call Centers are at least in this country.One expects to be understood an the person your talking too understands you, rather going through a list on their computers.. drives me nuts....
8:43 am
elder

Judi, how dare these companies do this ... cheap labour... cheap and poor service ..
8:43 am
Judi

Amen, Elder. Fortunately our credit union is local so we don't have a problem with those employees. However, if we call the phone/internet company... God help us.
8:43 am
Dorens

coffee here... ready to grind and brew
8:44 am
harpjane

i have a friend whose house burned down. she has a hysterical story to tell about her call to stop the sattellite tv service. they kept trying to sell her more and keep her as a valued customer.
8:44 am
elder

Dorens, I am in need of coffee, I will join you :)
8:45 am
harpjane

could someone clue the lone h?
8:45 am
elder

Harp LOL but how bad does it have to be before they listen ...!!
8:45 am
Judi

Complete insanity. I'd rather talk to an automated system.
8:45 am
BerniceQ

one of my jobs is interpreting phone calls for deaf people at a call center. i interpret customer service calls 20 times a day. it's the most frustrating thing i've ever done
8:45 am
elder

thanks folks for letting me steam off.. feeling better already ... until the next time ::)
8:46 am
harpjane

then they tried to get her to send the dish back....
8:46 am
BerniceQ

the deaf people often aren't familiar with the phone trees, so they don't understand you can't just start talking about your problem, but have to pick billing or tech support or whatever first
8:46 am
Dorens

ddon't say that judi.. the automated systems give me fits! i actually end up cursing at them. and they don't like that
8:46 am
harpjane

it was no longer in existence....
8:46 am
Judi

Well, at least they don't curse back, Dorens.
8:46 am
BerniceQ

harp, your story sounds about par for the course. they have no common sense, just a script to follow.
8:46 am
elder

Bernice.... I can't begin to imagine how hard that is ..
8:46 am
harpjane

how does that work, bernice? are they calling in with tty?
8:46 am
Dorens

no, but they politely tell me that they can't process that information, and sometimes hang up on me
8:47 am
BerniceQ

no, through video phone
8:47 am
BerniceQ

they no longer need ttys. they have video phones through high speed internet, and interpreters are at call centers
8:47 am
Dorens

oh my goodness! FORTY c words? and i thought i was doing well cause i had 20... hadn't looked at stats
8:47 am
BerniceQ

we place the call and then we can see the deaf people on tvs.
8:47 am
kje

harp - my DSL went down, serviced by Time warner... as I was calling in with the complaint they tried to get me to buy cable TV as well... I finally said, "do you really think the best time to sell me more services is when I am calling in to complain about the service I have?".... she said " you have a point" and stopeed trying to sell me stuff
8:47 am
BerniceQ

it's MUCH better than traditional relay, with ttys.
8:47 am
elder

And the numbers .. one just goes round and round as there is never a number that fits your needs ... Company bosses should be Shot !!
8:48 am
Judi

Ah, the brick of common sense. Some times it actually works!
8:48 am
BerniceQ

some things i don't mind the automated systems, but when you need tech support or have a complain, there's nothing worse
8:48 am
harpjane

i didn't know that. most of the deaf people i know don't use standard sign language so if they couldn't write things down they are doomed...
8:49 am
harpjane

i don't think montana does that, at least it still has the traditional relay service also
8:49 am
harpjane

coudl someone clue the lone H's?
8:49 am
BerniceQ

i had a problem with my laptop once, and i called for support only to be told that i had to PAY for help over the phone. i asked for a manager, and told him that if they charge for tech support, isn't that an incentive for them to make shotty computers, since they'll make more when people call to get help? he agreed and i got the service for free.
8:49 am
Judi

Hooo wheee! Montana. I hear they're drilling for lots of oil out there right now. I'm trying to find out which company's stock I should buy. Any inside info, Harpjane?
8:50 am
BerniceQ

harp, the video relay if federal and free. it's in all 50 states and canada
8:50 am
elder

It's disgraceful the way companies treat their customers and all the profits they make. We must continue to make a stand and move services where ever possible .

8:52 am

Another thing that irks me, is when you purchase anthing , they ask would you like extended warranty. My response is, if they expect the item to break down within 1,2, years I say I will not buy it.
8:52 am
kje

lucky you runner - I am living in hell they call dallas - hot as hell this month, anyway
8:52 am

*back to extended warranties* I have a very low quality laptop that I adore, as it is what could be afforded. It has broken every 6 months to a degree that would require replacement if not for my warranty which has made the thing last 3 years so far...as far as computers go, warranties are my friend.
8:58 am
elder

Runner, may I ask how you got to live on the Island, Partner, Job ?..
8:58 am
BerniceQ

ok, so if you're buying something you know isn't top quality, for whatever reason, warranties can be the equalizer
8:58 am

they will not let me add the sometimes vowel though - I also love things that are ba5y - but I guess it isn't real
9:00 am
elder

Uni, of course warranties are needed sometimes , but my point was about companies expectations that good s will not last ..
9:00 am
Uniquity

Electronics always die on me..even high quality. It's a bit depressing, especially considering the good care I take of my things.
9:00 am

i think ba 5+ y should be a word. as in, "mmm, something smells ba5y"

Monkey, your work looks like you have fun with it -- which should, of course, be the point of art! I've considered putting up a gallery of commissions and sold out stuff on my site, but that seemed like too much effort, so I have posted only the stuff that's actually available for sale.

All the children's stuff, for example. Although officially "on spec", several years really turns that into "pro bono".

1:17 pm
MonkeyGames

My mom does Open Studios with her pottery. Where ar eyou?
1:18 pm
Vicuna

Well, I've written a number of novels, but have not tried self-publishing those, because I think they would be hard to sell. See, with a children's picture book it's easy for people to pick it up, flip through it, and decide whether or not they like it. Plus, adults buy them for gifts. I don't think people do either so much with novels.
1:19 pm
MonkeyGames

True, too true. Mainly I write science fiction. What genre are your novels?
1:19 pm

I'm in Boston suburbs.

I was just thinking about doing some YA SF. I had a dream... I wasn't dreaming the story, I was dreaming writing it, with sketching and re-editing and all. and it was pretty good. I hope I find time to write it soon. As for YA fantasy, I did really enjoy the His Dark Materials books. Harry Potter leaves me wanting.

1:26 pm

I thought HDM was well-written and I was inrigued after the first one, but I kept waiting for Pullman to come up with some solution to his contradictions and paradoxes, and then so far from making them work, it turned out that he was apparently oblivious to his own utterly illogical hypocrasies. I ended up saying, "You've got to be kidding! That's just STUPID!" lol

2:24 pm
Hugabugs

I noticed the list says there is 19 ch words... which includes a ch7... that's incorrect... there's only 18 ch words and no 7
2:25 pm
Vicuna

exceot that br4, in this case, means a group of marine creatures, not a person from UK
2:25 pm
stidmama

or maybe *remembering Grendel's tale* it refers back to long before the br4s were UK? rofl
2:26 pm
Judi

Harumph.
2:27 pm
stidmama

LOL Judi!
2:27 pm

2:45 pm
Judi

Interesting. I would have thought honey would crystallize.
2:46 pm
kje

yes, except for botulinum which flourishes in honey
2:46 pm
jacq

oh god 3 hours in and only 70 words
2:46 pm

Crystallized honey can be uncrystallized just by heating it back up.
2:46 pm

2:46 pm
