2:05 am
mrpresident

2:06 am
GroovyKiwi

i hate to say it but the finance co is aussie owned too
2:06 am
mrpresident

well, I do hope he comes to signing it, or threaten to sue the sh!t out of him!
2:06 am
joshuavorbis

what's keeping him from si4ing the papers? is it something more than stubbornness or childishness?
2:07 am
GroovyKiwi

josh he is happy to give over title and financial control of the house to me no problems he just wants ultimate control over when i can or cant sell the house and i wont agree to it
2:07 am
sandyloo

2:07 am
mrpresident

what a %#$&ing asshole
2:07 am
sandyloo

sounds like you need a lawyer- but they cost a fortune
2:08 am
GroovyKiwi

so basically my lawyer has advised his lawyer that unless the separation agreement is amended with that clause removed and the arrears paid by 5pm tomorrow we will go to court
2:08 am
mrpresident

i am pretty good with nail clippers! I could make it very very long and painful for him
2:08 am
sandyloo

what a win for the law proffession
2:08 am
GroovyKiwi

oh i wish mrp
2:08 am
sandyloo

doesn't he realise they will be the only winners
2:09 am
GroovyKiwi

the worst of it is that its like he doesnt care if the kids have a house to live in or not
2:09 am
joshuavorbis

wait, if he's ok with giving over title and financial control to you, what does he care about when you sell it?
2:09 am
mrpresident

josh, it is about 'control'
2:09 am
sandyloo

can't believe some of these stories!!! How can someone act like that!!
2:09 am
GroovyKiwi

hes trying to stop me selling it before both of the kids have grown up and moved out
2:10 am
joshuavorbis

do you want to sell it now?
2:10 am
sandyloo

Yes Pres, "control"
2:10 am
GroovyKiwi

and im saying well hey what if we decide we just want a new house - like any family, or what if i decide to get a job in another city or what if i find a new man and we move in with him
2:11 am
GroovyKiwi

no i dont want to sell it right now but why should someone who doesnt have any financial control over a house or a name on the title tell me how i can run mine or my kids lives
2:11 am
mrpresident

brb... will chat again about this and catch up on the chatlog kiwi... just have to get dinner
2:11 am
joshuavorbis

how can he even legally exert that sort of control? title is the last call, isn't it?
2:11 am
GroovyKiwi

i havent eaten yet whats for dinner mrp
2:12 am
GroovyKiwi

he wants a caveat put on the title
2:13 am
joshuavorbis

uhhhh, something isn't adding up
2:13 am
joshuavorbis

divorces are weird
2:14 am
GroovyKiwi

we could have had this settled months ago, the old mortgage paid off, my new less expensive mortgage running no big lawyers bills and no stress or anger but NOPE he had to carry on being an ass
2:15 am
joshuavorbis

remind me never to get married
2:15 am
GroovyKiwi

hind sight isnt a good thing lol
2:15 am
sandyloo

he wants a settlement then?

GroovyKiwi

and because hes being an ass im getting in the doo doo
2:17 am
Andree

kiwi tell him if you go to court tell him you will be asking for costs, that might get him to change his mind as it is likely he may have to pay
2:17 am
Rlee

my cousin cassie is in the grid, should i tell her she is special :p
2:18 am
GroovyKiwi

ag5 greys hotel in apia, samoa is in the grid too lol
2:18 am
GroovyKiwi

well im just hoping like hell i get a positive call from the lawyer tomorrow
2:18 am
Andree

as he has caused the need to take it to court any decent judge will make him pay
2:20 am
GroovyKiwi

ive pretty much got a month before the finance co get approval for a mortgagee sale so im hoping that it will be sorted way before then
2:21 am
GroovyKiwi

and thats firewords for me

Hi Mr P how you doing?
2:40 am
mrpresident

hi katie! am doing ok thanks.... tolerating myself and getting better :D
2:40 am
KatieMcG

that's great, did you have a good holiday?
2:41 am
mrpresident

we got the house andree!
we are moving in 2 1/2 weeks... am getting excited about it now that it is sinking in
2:42 am
Andree

I am so glad, you will now have the unpleasant task of moving
2:42 am
mrpresident

katie, it was lovely to be in the sunshine! Queensland is a lovely this time of year
2:43 am
mrpresident

at least the move will be positive (bigger place), but I do hate packing up and moving!
2:43 am
KatieMcG

It will be nice to be able to get settled though Mr P. Is it me or do you seem to move quite a lot?
2:44 am
Andree

sunshine would be nice , this weather is crazy, we have the heaters on
2:44 am
mrpresident

katie, oh no! we have lived in the same place for 8 years! we moved in January, but it was not the right place for us.... so we are moving into a much bigger house and hope to stay there for quite some time
2:45 am
KatieMcG

Ahhh it was the January move I remembered, it is so stressful to keep moving, lets hope the next one is a 'keeper'
2:45 am
Andree

i will organise myself and come one afternoon and gove a hand with some of the packing
2:45 am
mrpresident

I don't think it was above 12 degrees today... nasty nasty weather.
2:46 am
mrpresident

yes katie, I am concerned that they will keep to their word and let us stay for at least 2 years
2:47 am
KatieMcG

do you rent then Mr P?
2:47 am
mrpresident

oh andree! you are too much of a sweetie!
we don't have much to pack, as most of it is still packed away in the garage!
2:48 am
mrpresident

yes katie, we sold earlier this year and decided to rent until the housing market improved and interest rates dropped.
here, we pay 8% interest... it is awful... it needs to drop to 5% before we would consider buying again
2:48 am
Andree

with your arm mrp you should grab any help you can,moving really is the pits
2:49 am
mrpresident

I know andree... and I would love/appreciate any help
2:50 am
Andree

i think it may drop to quite a low rate in the next year or so
2:50 am
mrpresident

andree... do you remember the days when interest rates were 18.5%...??? that was the death of many
2:51 am
Andree

okay i will call you closer to the move, do you need boxes
2:51 am
KatieMcG

That's a good move Mr P, our interest rates are lower but it really depends on if you can get a mortgate and what rate. A lot of people are in trouble because they dropped of a really low fixed rate and their payments are going up by £400 per month etc
2:51 am
mrpresident

that is alot katie!
2:52 am
mrpresident

nah, boxes can come from the movers... they give them on loan. thanks so much though andree!
2:54 am
mrpresident

gotta go get dinner moving along to actually being on the table and eaten! bbs :D
2:54 am
Andree

you must have nice movers , we had to buy ours, or rather my son did so we have had our moneys worth, they have done a move for each of the family so far
2:55 am
KatieMcG

I bought plastic boxes for a lot of mine which was going into storage between houses. Now we have loads of them in the garage but they are so useful.
2:58 am
Andree

katie , i did that too and they get passed out to family and friends too, the other useful carriers for clothes etc are those big chinese bags$2 at the dollar shop
2:58 am
Andree

not that they have anything for $1
3:00 am
KatieMcG

We are very in to 'bags for life' one shop does them for £1 and they are great, would use a lot more of them now, but hopefully we are in this house for a long long time, couldn't take another year like last year :-)
3:02 am
Andree

my daughter and i have a 1 year lease on this house , i would like to stay as long as poss but who knows when you rent you are at the whim of owners who may sell etc
3:04 am
KatieMcG

I know what you mean Andree, I managed to keep the same rented house for 5 years but know how lucky I was.
3:05 am
KatieMcG

I'd better go now, see you later
3:05 am
Andree

yes i was in the last for nearly 4 years and if it wasn't for the fact that my daughter and i decided to get a place together i would still be there
3:05 am

pardon me whilst I burp! my dinner is just settling in LOL!
3:30 am

in dutch, the word for burp is the same as the word for farmer. When someone burps, we say: geef die boer een stoel - give that farmer a chair.
3:31 am
mrpresident

boer! haha! almost the same word as pig
3:31 am

yay, Ks konkerred.
3:32 am

dutch for pig is varken :)

3:34 am

konkerred would be agreed, right?
3:34 am

Gran, I am stuck on the na7 too
3:48 am
Atalante

a good bit better, thankfully! just taken the pup for a nice walk, and now I'm putting off starting to ink a picture using my scary 0.18mm pen
3:49 am
Atalante

na7 - like plural Mrs Reagans
3:49 am

very good going, Ata. Putting off is an essencial part of getting better.
3:49 am
emtiandeca

thanks
3:49 am

brilliant, thanks Ata
3:50 am
Atalante

I hate my 0.18mm pen. it's sooooooo fine. and shows up ALL the wobbles!
3:50 am

G'd morning emtian

Well the don't wobble! :p

hi amtian

yeah :P it's rather hard though when one of my meds makes my hands wobble :P
3:51 am

that was emtian, sory
3:51 am
LoriP

*** ducks ***
3:51 am
sprite

so actually you are not putting off work, Ata, you are rescheduling until a fitter time. In both ways.
3:52 am
Atalante

wimping out, really!
3:52 am
sprite

hehehe, part of my therapy is learning to re-label things in a better way. Wimping is not a better way. Rescheduling is.
3:53 am
Atalante

and a complete cop out LOL. I'm going to wait for half an hour, tea and breakfast will stop hands wobbling, then I'll get going with it!!
3:53 am

Shivering. 2 freakin' degrees when I got up at 4 am. Now 6 am, and no warmer.....

4:02 am

lol
4:03 am
Atalante

ok, how is folic not accepted?
4:04 am
sprite

it is an enablistupidity
4:04 am
Atalante

ditto kois. silly dictionary
4:04 am
sprite

kois is logical. Japanese doesn't know plurals as english does. So koi is both singular and plural.
4:05 am
Atalante

it's accepted in scramble and they use the official scrabble dictionary :P
4:05 am
sprite

then scrabble is off :)
4:05 am
hydra

I agree. It's infuriating. I found a great 8 letter word once, perfectly acceptable English, and Enable threw it out.
4:06 am
Atalante

I think the idea is that its a Japanesse word, but officially a word in English now, therefore would obey english rules for plurals
4:06 am
sprite

yes, I think so too, Ata. Just wanted to show off.
4:07 am
Jacula

Morning all. *yawns*
4:07 am

morning Jac! Tea?
4:07 am

you'll giggle at this, hydra. Every time I see you online I momentarily go O.O! Hydra met Marc Bolan. Someone that met Marc Bolan is online with me! Then I cringe and ignore my fangirling. LOL
4:07 am
Atalante

:D
4:07 am
Atalante

hi Jac!
4:08 am
hydra

Hi Jac! Couldn't take up your Scramble challenge as it wouldn't let me on the site.
4:08 am
Jacula

Yes please, Sprite. *gulp, slurp*
4:08 am
hydra

Oh Ata! I didn't realise you were such a fan. When I left Diamond Publishing, the boss made me hand over all my tapes of rock star interviews, including that one. I was gutted!
4:09 am
sprite

*puts teapot in reach of Jac*
4:09 am
Jacula

Hydra - that happens to me sometimes. It'll probably work later.
4:09 am
Atalante

*grins* I'm not really. He just reminds me more than any other "famous person" of when I was really young and those happy days!
4:09 am
Jacula

Ata - I loved Marc, too.
4:10 am
Atalante

and I *do* love his music
4:10 am
hydra

Ata, Marc was wonderful. Gentle, fey, poetic, a beautiful spirit. His wife kept stepping in and talking for him, though. I could have slapped her!
4:10 am
bfsog

is it just me or is there always some words that make it through to todays grid from yesterdays?
4:10 am
sprite

very often, bfsog
4:10 am
hydra

It's not just you, bf.
4:10 am
Atalante

My mum had 1 LP when I was very tiny. Is was T-Rex, so I actually think * thinks a bit* Marc Bolan is actually the first male face I ever remember seeing (cos mum was divorced when I was 1)
4:11 am
Jacula

June (wifey) used to stand in the wings looking fierce at concerts.:-(
4:11 am
Atalante

I think you are just very very lucky to have met him
4:11 am
hydra

Then you're imprinted with him! Yes, I was very lucky.
4:11 am
hydra

I think June was over=protective, but who could blame her?
4:11 am
Atalante

yes exactly :) he's been kind of a constant in my life from then on
4:12 am
Jacula

I guess you're right, Hydra.
4:12 am
sprite

can't be easy to have a famous husband.
4:12 am
Atalante

or famous wife! ask Guy Ritchie LOL
4:13 am
Jacula

LOL, Ata.
4:13 am
hydra

Depends whether you're content to live in his shadow. I wouldn't be! You either overcmpensate, like Victoria Beckham, trying to rival his fame, or you become his keeper, like June.
4:13 am
Atalante

or have a complete separate career where you are truly content
4:14 am
Jacula

Sharon and Ozzy seem to manage.
4:14 am
hydra

How many spouses of the famous have managed that, though? Too often there's a clash of needs and egos.
4:14 am
sprite

hydra to the sin bin ;)
4:14 am
hydra

Yes, you're right, Jac. Probably cos they don't compete in the same sphere.
4:15 am
hydra

What have I done?
4:15 am
Atalante

Tony and Cherie Blair. If he is catgorised as famous
4:15 am
Atalante

I think that's the key - don't compete. Each be happy and overlap where possible
4:15 am
hydra

Have I said a word? Oops! Sorry
4:15 am
Jacula

eg4, hydra.
4:15 am
sprite

you sinned, of course. eg4. And many related words, if you go for that kind of thing :D
4:16 am

Oh dear! Into the PB with me.
4:16 am
Jacula

Drat! Now she'll empty the chocolat fountain in there. :-)
4:16 am
Atalante

choc fountains are never ending
4:16 am
hydra

Tee-hee! *gulp, slurp*
4:17 am

and mutual trust and respect, I think, Ata. Both need to feel recognised for who they are.
4:17 am
hydra

Who left the bottle of champagne in there?
4:17 am
sprite

that was me, I stocked up pretty thoroughly last night, hydra. I had to send the entire chat to the PB before bed.
4:18 am

champagne?! ooo *quickly types in grid words*

4:18 am

it was very good champagne. She will be fine, Jac.

4:21 am

Not so sure she will, sprite - with all that choc in her, too. She'll be liking a living Aero bar.

6:35 am

we used to have mamamutes..and it was impossible to make them indoor dogs as they secrete a musky oil that keeps them warm..they would rather play in a snowbank;)
6:35 am

malamutes
6:36 am
Atalante

were they kept in a shed?
6:36 am
crosshair

not to mention they were about 175 pounds in weight
6:36 am
carleekat

I had one too...slept int he garage
6:36 am
lynxxx

They just want to be outside so they can kill any cats or possums that happen onto their territory! anything for food
6:37 am

shed would be too small..a dog run or a large garage would be fine

carleekat

well....there was lots of clothing flying ( traditional pakistani engagement and wedding clothes ).... as girls were trying it all on... and lots of food too...with henna...so...
6:41 am
carleekat

pathfinders are the next age group after girl guides ( girl scouts)....
6:42 am

or girl guides as the case may be
6:42 am

okay, so it was a field trip to a mosque?
6:42 am

i remember the pathfinders..best time of my life;)
6:43 am
carleekat

and the girls at the mosque did traditional henna patterns on our hands....but I only had one done as I work with cleaners and water and wine...and my right hand takes the brunt of it..would fade or end up a different colour
6:43 am
carleekat

yeap... did a badge with them...
6:43 am

very interesting

'Smears' About Obama Largely True
6:58 am

Monday, October 20, 2008 9:32 PM

By: Lowell Ponte
Article Font Size








The Obama campaign says its candidate is a victim of "smears" — and has even created a Web site to fight such attacks.

But a Newsmax investigation finds many of the so-called smears are largely based in truth — and the Obama campaign uses half-truths, clever language, and ad hominem attacks to spin the facts.

Obama's www.FightTheSmears.com focuses mainly on anti-Obama messages being repeated on the Internet and talk radio, the only media where Obama's ideological allies are not dominant.

10:01 am

Temporary Rd was made 20 years ago, as a temp truck route for constructing the Reston Town Center. VDOT came along, and gave it the name that was spraypainted on the fibreboard

So, am I hard-hearted or too sensible? What do you make of someone who gets her workmates to sign a get-well card for her 8 week old puppy and then asks the vet to meet her after hours so she can get it to the puppy undergoing treatment in the surgery?
10:39 am

Yes. I think my unicorn must have been eaten by a wolf. =P

na7 - plural mrs reagan

That's a bit extreme. Unless the puppy can read, then it makes perfect sense. *rolls eyes*

It happened last weekend in the surgery - the other vet's wife dealt with her.

Spangle is fine. Wondering where her get well cards are but otherwise fine.
10:41 am
Atalante

yayyy :)
10:41 am

i would not have met her after hours for that... she can come during normal hours and do whatever she likes... but that is ridiculous
10:42 am
Atalante

I should send her an e-card
10:42 am
Vicuna

Poor poor Spangle, not getting any get-well cards. DId you send her flowers, at least?
10:42 am
Haz1558

Katie - I didn't make it up. She also wanted the puppy to have a toy that had her and her husband's scent on it.
10:42 am
KatieMcG

we are si****** it as we speak :-)
10:42 am
Judi

Spangle's too famous to read her own fan mail. That's why she has you as her PA, Haz.
10:42 am
Haz1558

The compromise reached was that she left the card and the toy in a box at the back of the surgery. The next time the vet went in to check the animals was when it was delivered.
10:43 am
KatieMcG

And how was all this taken by said vet?
10:43 am
Atalante

and by the puppy? did it wee on them?
10:43 am
Vicuna

Did the puppy get miffed that it was improperly delivered?
10:43 am
Haz1558

Well, vet's wife was glad that it wasn't her husband who had spoken to the woman - and the vet who was dealing with the puppy is young and easy-going.
10:44 am
rururocks

Fuuuuuuunny kje.. thanks
10:44 am

that has to go down in The Annals of Vet Life
10:44 am
KatieMcG

Lol Haz, I bet she was, days of chuntering would have had to be endured
10:44 am
Haz1558

Isn't it ridiculous? What I couldn't get over was that the work colleagues had signed the card.
10:44 am
kje

asg sent it, ruru... thought you'd like it
10:45 am
Vicuna

lol. They probably didn't dare refuse!
10:45 am
Atalante

how many work colleagues? did she canvas the whole office?
10:45 am
KatieMcG

She is probably their boss, either than or it was the quickest way of getting her to shut up about it
10:45 am
Vicuna

Much easier to si4 the thing than endure her outrage at their refusal.
10:45 am
Atalante

did she find Liam Neeson to askhim to si4?
10:46 am
KatieMcG

They all went home and said "you never guess what that tapped woman had us doing today"
10:46 am
Atalante

please tell me the puppy was called Foofoo or Flopsy or something cutesy
10:46 am
Haz1558

I don't know how many people signed it - must check if they still have it in the surgery.
10:46 am

people who name their dogs foofoo should be taken out back and bludgeoned..
10:47 am

HArd to fit a lot of pall-beareers under a tiny puppy.

NO, it would have to be dog-shaped or bone shaped or something.

10:50 am

Can you imagine the misery the workmates are going through right now!!
10:50 am
Haz1558

I have to confess that they once had a Yorkshire terrier die in the surgery. A custom made coffin arrived and two vets did a ceremonial march past (behind closed doors!)
10:51 am

Or watch them all get run over on the highway. My husband grew up on a farm and they reminisce fondly about all their dogs... But it never occurs to them to keep it leashed, or indoors, or anything.
10:51 am
KatieMcG

Feeling hard hearted at leaving fuggy at the vets and not getting full state funeral for him!
10:51 am
Atalante

what sort of dog was the parvo dog?
10:51 am
Judi

What's next? A horse-drawn caison?
10:52 am
Haz1558

I don't know, Ata, I was just hearing the bare outline of the details from Kate this morning.
10:52 am
Vicuna

Katie, Katie, Katie. Now how will poor Fuggy face the other pets in heaven?
10:52 am
Atalante

bet it was a yorkie or - no - a bichon frise (*checks around for bichon*) or toy poodle
10:53 am
Atalante

or a *bedlington* (my worst insult for a dog)
10:53 am
Vicuna

Those things are not dogs, Ata! They are deformed sheep!
10:53 am
KatieMcG

better that than being dug up by one of the three kitties, that was my lo*** anyway! He can brag about the number of toys he had :-)

Hi TO
10:54 am
Haz1558

The surgery used to use a crematorium for cremation of animals but changed when they once sent back the ashes of a cat - in husband's words there were enough ashes for a donkey... The receptionist had to empty some outside the door before giving a respectable amount to the cat owners who had come to collect the remains.
10:54 am
Atalante

they are. they are nasty and smelly and trembly and they make far too much noise (when I was trying to study for exams, next-door's bedlington pack used to constantly howl)
10:54 am
Atalante

oooops
10:54 am
Vicuna

Ahh well, Katie. I'm sure you raised him to hold his own with honest self-esteem.
10:55 am
KatieMcG

Was it ASGreen who was getting a new puppy on Sunday?
10:55 am
72 Temple Owl

LOL haz they charge a fortune here for cremation. the way i look at it, once you're gone, you're gone.
10:55 am
Atalante

yep the half labradoodle effort called Ringo
10:55 am
Judi

Well, at least they didn't empty out the bar-b-que and try to pass that off as kitty's remains.
10:55 am
Atalante

Haz (and everyone else) have you read Evelyn Waugh's "The LOved One"?
10:56 am
Vicuna

Hello, TO.
10:56 am
Vicuna

Not I, Ata.
10:56 am
72 Temple Owl

oh yes.
10:56 am
Haz1558

I know, TO. But everyone has different ideas and you have to cater for them.
10:56 am
72 Temple Owl

i need a laugh - just back from big bosses' office and it did not go well
10:56 am
Haz1558

No, Ata - have I missed out on a good read?
10:56 am
Judi

Uh oh, To. What happened??
10:57 am
Atalante

oh *yes*. you really should read it, it's sooooo wonderfully funny. It's set in an American pet crematorium
10:57 am
72 Temple Owl

haz - i was sorely tempted. but i made myself think about it
10:57 am
KatieMcG

read back TO
10:57 am
Haz1558

TO, what part of the conversation did you come on on? Did you get the bit about the get well card for the doomed puppy?
10:57 am
Atalante

which sounds depressing, but its Waugh at his absolute brilliantest and funniest
10:57 am
Haz1558

I'll seek it out, Ata.
10:57 am
72 Temple Owl

just i did not have inof and everyone is gone to a meeting and they left me home to deal with stuff that used to be my job but is no longer...

10:59 am
Atalante

11:00 am
72 Temple Owl

wait ata - didn't the film change it to humans?
11:00 am
Atalante

*gasp*
11:01 am
Atalante

Thus unfolds Evelyn Waugh's The Loved One: An Anglo-American Tragedy, his pitiless satire of Hollywood, America, and death. The plot centers on Dennis Barlow, a minor British poet, who comes to Hollywood commissioned to bring Percy Shelley's life to the big screen, but instead settles for employment at a pet cemetery called the Happier Hunting Ground. Life at the H.H.G. is rewarding: where else could one experience the satisfaction that comes from scattering the ashes of a tabby cat from an airplane over Sunset Boulevard?
11:01 am
72 Temple Owl

oh heck - get well cards for pets?
11:02 am
FMitch

That does sound like a good read Ata
11:02 am
72 Temple Owl

11:02 am
Atalante

11:03 am
72 Temple Owl

oh ok - thought i was having another unexplainable moment
11:04 am
Atalante

nope, not quite :) I cant imagine a film of that book though, the brilliance is all how Evelyn Waugh writes
11:05 am
72 Temple Owl

it is dry to some. to ohteres it downright *thinking of suitable synonym to use in the queen's presence*....uh, er...
11:05 am

Book Doctor Gwen

phee, click on the tiny green link at the bottom for Lickety's Babble Clues

Lickety gives you the first two letters of each word, plus how many letters in the word, plus the word's point value

The point value sometimes helps you figure out if you need a word with a high-scoring letter in it, and things like that
11:52 am
Pheebers

Ohhhhhh! Thanks so much
11:52 am
LadyNatts

that's from the clues, pheebers... there's a list (link under Friends of Babble under the board) that gives you the first 2 letters and total number of letters in the word

true, cross... but they text messages with expertise!

there is no evidence that cavemen grunted. however, they made very good wine.
12:11 pm

english is a mongrel language (most are) but we have no system or committee to fix it. other languages do

12:13 pm

theater vs theatre for example

I can usually spot a spelling mistake at 100 yards! I am a terrible snob when it comes to spelling - and pronunciation
12:16 pm

sorry... "The Mother Tongue: English and how it got that way"

I don't recall offhand, but it should be googleable
12:17 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

lady, nope, don't think i've read that. but i admit, i'm not so much interested in how as much as making some reasonbale changes to how we use it today
12:17 pm

oh, but it's a very well written book (and it does present some arguments for what you are saying)
12:18 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

used to an editor (despite my bad typing), so i can spell "correctly" if i want to. i just think "correct" spelling is a highly artifical construct that could stand some revision
12:18 pm
LadyNatts

actually, I found it hysterical. and I don't generally read non-fiction.
12:19 pm
crosshair

we are such a mixture of french and eglish with smatterings of other lings that there is no hope of a pure language anymore
12:19 pm

12:19 pm

There are 5 copies - apparently - of Shakespeares signature and he spells it differently every time
12:20 pm

no language is pure. if you go to any place where two languages meet, you will find a third language in between them. then go to the border of that and you find another one. there are no strict boundaries

12:24 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

lady, why? (i mean, why does anyone save old textbooks?) no, seriously, there are a few topics that might be of interest, but usually old textbooks have no market value
12:24 pm

that's interesting, cross. I did not know that?

lol gwen. I gathered we were at a distance (and shipping costs would be horrendous).
12:28 pm

yeah, I'm not surprised, gwen. But, as I said, my mother was (is) a packrat. AND she was a teacher.
12:28 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

you need to find a local dealer to show them to. just bring three or four with you. bring one in really good condition, and bring one that is in the worst condition, so dealer can "see" how bad they are
12:29 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

condition will have a great effect on value, so if they are scribbled in, or torn, broken, warped, stinky, etc, all that will lower value
12:29 pm

Oooh! Well, good results in my case, but ,aybe I should sjhop around to get the luck person...
12:48 pm

Once I had a headache that was UNBELIEVABLE. All I could do was lie on the bed and moan and pull hair oput. A friend told my husband she could get me in at the acupuncture school.
12:48 pm
LadyNatts

can I ask you, Monkey...? what is a job at an unpaid residency?
12:48 pm
MonkeyGames

The instructor took one look at me, and asked if he could let students watch. Of course I said whatever, just fix it!
12:48 pm
MonkeyGames

Tell you after this story...
12:49 pm
LadyNatts

okay
12:50 pm
MonkeyGames

So all the students came in and the guy proceeded to make me look like that one from Hellraiser. Needles through the eyebrows, temples, you name it. Dozens of them. No change. The he said, "This is the one!" and stuck a needle straight through the bridge of my nose. That headache turned off like someone threw a switch and never came back. I swear that was SO goo I went synesthesic and heard the colrs singing briefly.
12:51 pm
MonkeyGames

OK, I am a third-year social work student. I get my Bachelors' in Feb. Meantime they don't have to pay you for your 1200 required hours of work experience. That is my unpaid residency. I have 60 hours left. Ihave applied for a job.
12:51 pm
LadyNatts

wow...I should tell my ex-co-worker friend about that... she is plagued by headaches all the time.
12:52 pm
LadyNatts

ah, I see. 1200 hours? that's excessive.
12:52 pm
MonkeyGames

Do tell her! It was quite an experience. My husband gets migraines but sadly needles send him into shock...#
12:53 pm

Well, it's pretty normal for this kind of degree here. But seeing as to how I am doing it in Dutch I am pretty darned burned out now...

Oh, I'll get through it... always do. But thank you for the sympathy. I need all I can get (pathetic whimper...)

No, no, usually I rely on family for the sympathy. Just thanks is all. There was such a great job my friend thought she could get me at the WWII Jewish History Museum, but it wasn't suited to my education so I would have had to do it AND the residency and just cannot do that, not with a four-year-old.
12:57 pm

LadyNatts

do they really, cross? isn't that blasphemous?
1:11 pm
crosshair

if it isnt,it should be:)
1:12 pm
MonkeyGames

Dissing it is blasphemous, I think. America, love it or leave it, they say. And just WHERE am I?
1:12 pm
LadyNatts

and now you're in Holland... how did that happen?
1:13 pm
crosshair

we get dissed over poutine so...ce la vie;)
1:13 pm
oodleberry

I left it
1:13 pm
MonkeyGames

Political dissatisfaction 15 years ago. Been a long road, but here we are, Dutch citizens. Renouncing the US citizenship was fun. Walter was born Dutch.
1:13 pm
LadyNatts

thank you for making me laugh, cross.
1:13 pm
crosshair

mmm dutch chocolate...mmmmmm
1:13 pm
crosshair

np lady:)
1:14 pm
oodleberry

i don't know why poutine is so bad
1:14 pm
MonkeyGames

Despite what you may here, by the Blooker cocoa powder instead of the Droste.
1:14 pm
crosshair

laughter is the best medicine:)
1:14 pm
oodleberry

sorry where are my manners... hi everyone
1:14 pm
LadyNatts

well then, you're set. holland is much better than the U.S. anyway (far as I'm concerned)
1:14 pm
MonkeyGames

What the heck is poutine?
1:15 pm
oodleberry

french fries with sauce and cheese
1:15 pm
LadyNatts

OMG! you don't know poutine?!
1:15 pm
oodleberry

well I didn't before I moved here to quebec
1:15 pm
MonkeyGames

No, we just put mayo on them.
1:15 pm
crosshair

poutine is a amazing concoction mg..you take perfectly good french fries,then cover them in tons of melted cheese then cover it all in steaming gravy
1:16 pm
oodleberry

here it is the cheese curds
1:16 pm
LadyNatts

poutine: french fries with savoury gravy and semi-melted cheese curds (sometimes mozzarella, sometimes cheddar, sometimes both)....
1:16 pm
MonkeyGames

That sounds just AWFULLY yummy. I will check it out after the next 23 kilos.
1:16 pm
crosshair

same here..can substitute and cheese type though
1:16 pm
oodleberry

here you get a quizzical look
1:17 pm
crosshair

when your heart stutters..stop eating it immediatly
1:17 pm
MonkeyGames

Me?
1:17 pm
LadyNatts

I just dreamed the other night about a "poutine baked potato" ... does anyone do that yet?
1:17 pm
oodleberry

but because of the sauce base of flour I can't eat it
1:17 pm
crosshair

yes lady it called a stuffed potato;))
1:17 pm
MonkeyGames

Do you have Celiac's (sp?)?
1:18 pm
oodleberry

no
1:18 pm
oodleberry

I can have oats and barley but just no wheat
1:18 pm
MonkeyGames

That is an allergy to wheat so I wondered. I think you could base the gravy on non-gluten rice flour or on water chestnut flour, which I use a lot.
1:19 pm
crosshair

you can indeed mg
1:19 pm
oodleberry

i am learning how to be CAnadian but I don't like hockely and I can't eat poutine... um man I am going to be a weak CAnadian
1:19 pm
MonkeyGames

Water chestnut flour is the secret way Chinese restaurants get the sauce that silky texture.
1:20 pm
crosshair

just get hooked on bacon ,maple syrup and football then;))
1:20 pm
oodleberry

yes I couldn't make it myself but it's not the same as yummy commercial junk food hee hee hee hee
1:20 pm
MonkeyGames

OK, well, I don't like raw herring and don't care much about football.... Buttulips are nice.
1:21 pm
LadyNatts

raw herring would be hard to swallow (I could probably take pickled though)
1:21 pm
MonkeyGames

You would think but now that I have been cooking for a while my friends would rather come here for Chinese than go to a restaurant.
1:21 pm
oodleberry

like bacon and maple syrup not a big sports fan
1:21 pm
MonkeyGames

Well, it is lightly piuckled... usually...
1:21 pm
oodleberry

2 out of 3 aint bad eh?
1:21 pm
crosshair

then try fishing or nature phtography:)
1:22 pm
crosshair

crossy blows chunks at the thought of raw pickled herring:(
1:22 pm
MonkeyGames

Yeah, tell me about it. Thing is, I can stand it kind of... except ALLLLL the small bones.
1:23 pm
oodleberry

I like moose and beaver though and when I work a year here I will be moving west... Calgary I would prefer
1:23 pm
crosshair

anyways ladies,time for me to go hose down this mass of muscle and get to work:) tc all
1:23 pm
LadyNatts

bye cross!
1:23 pm
oodleberry

1:24 pm

1:24 pm

bbye
1:24 pm

Have a god day, Cross! Stay well!
1:25 pm
MonkeyGames

Was pretty sure about that, Oodle, but on the basis of zero info.
1:25 pm
LadyNatts

I'm outa here too... can't think straight for the headache I have. oodleberry, WELCOME. I like moose (never tried beaver). And Calgary stinks. Come to Edmonton.
1:26 pm
oodleberry

is the reason why the netherlands speaks either dutch or english because it was an english colony?
1:26 pm
MonkeyGames

Hang in there and nurse that headache, Lady! Nice chatting with you... Have as good a day as possible!
1:26 pm
oodleberry

no no not to eat
1:27 pm
oodleberry

that's too funny ok ok we WERE talking about food
1:27 pm
MonkeyGames

It wasn't really. OK, William was English, but it's alays been kind of different here. No, Most Dutch people spoeak Duytch, French, English, and German.
1:27 pm
MonkeyGames

We are the only place in Western Europe the Romans left. They came, they built forts, they described it as dismal and boggy, they left.

hi -- which say sarah palin video, kje?
2:22 pm
MonkeyGames

Hey kje, potentially useful but you probably already know it.... A good friend of mine who walks his dog when I walk ours and tehy play is 78. He said his doctor has told him that playing sudoku can keep you sharper longer because it enocurages memory and performance at the same time. Anyway, House bak on, bye again folks!

2:29 pm

you just need to come up with a really cool reason you have a black box...
2:30 pm
kje

like... this empty box represents someone's brain... to remain nameless...
2:30 pm
kje

or this black box represents the debt the current administration has driven our economy into
2:31 pm

or the black box represents my knowledge of the inner workings of an atom

most excellent, thank you. Beautiful fall day in New England. Spent lots of it in the woods with Biscuit
4:24 pm
redturtlehead

sound perfect!! did you have apple cider?
4:25 pm
bichon

I sure did. It was sweet!
4:25 pm
redturtlehead

wow quintessential day!
4:26 pm
bichon

Can't ask for better. Cold, November weather will be here soon and I want to take advantage of it. After the romp in the woods, I baked a pumpkin sour cream bread
4:27 pm
JBV

hi, everyone, enjoying that day in the woods vicariously, bichon -
4:28 pm

Still hot hot hot here.
4:28 pm

Retirement is wonderful. The economic signs say no, the heart says yes
4:28 pm

Where are you red, in FL?
4:28 pm

we have beautiful fall weather here too, around 50 degrees today, leaves are beautiful, but of course when you're just looking out the window at the trees
4:28 pm

Hi JBV.
4:29 pm

I am right outside of Orlando, working in East Orlando.

4:29 pm
redturtlehead

How are you and Hubby JBV?
4:29 pm
bichon

I really need to have fall and spring, not just warmer and cooler. The sacrifice is winter
4:30 pm
redturtlehead

I'm liking it a lot, I hate winter so much. It is colder here now, but not like up north.
4:30 pm
JBV

thanks for asking red - we are in the middle of what looks like another ordeal for him, right now still making the rounds of doctors to get the right diagnosis and course of treatment, but he will be facing another surgery soon
4:31 pm
redturtlehead

Oh No. How is he holding up through that? How are you holidng up? I always get exhausted from any MD visits.
4:32 pm
JBV

it is very stressful - just making the appointments, getting the referrals and dealing with the insurance is a headache, then the endless tests, then the news that the doctors are giving us...
4:33 pm
JBV

oh, and did I mention that I am also doing nursing duty at home? (that's why I said a while back that I praise and celebrate nurses who make their living this way - I have the highest admiration for nurses)
4:33 pm
redturtlehead

do you have confidence in the doctors?
4:34 pm
JBV

well, you've hit on another source of stress, red, - we're seeing so many and nobody is really sure what to do - it's very complex..
4:34 pm
redturtlehead

is there a good med center that you are using?
4:34 pm
JBV

my husband is very private and most of our friends and even family don't know what he is going through so thank you, babble friends, for being there for me
4:35 pm
redturtlehead

the docs should do a conference tpgesther with you
4:35 pm
JBV

yes, Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center, New Brunswick, NJ
4:35 pm
redturtlehead

ask for something like a family conference...
4:35 pm
JBV

thanks for mentioning that, so far they say they are talking to each other, but we have not had a conference together
4:35 pm
bichon

That's Rutgers, right?

bichon, Rutgers is in New Brunswick but it's not associated with the Medical Center
4:37 pm
redturtlehead

You might also ask for a "social work" consult which will horrify your husband, you dont need Social work perse, but the ones employed by the hospitals are really helpful at navigating things.
4:37 pm
bichon

Are there specialist there who work on whatever is your hubby's ailment?
4:37 pm
bichon

I've spoken with lots of social workers regarding my mother's cancer. They've been helpful
4:38 pm
JBV

sounds like you know him, red, :) (or his type, at least) - he doesn't even like having the visiting nurse come once a day but we need her to do dressing changes while i'm at work
4:38 pm
JBV

I agree, bichon, these are good suggestions, I will work on him to agree
4:39 pm
redturtlehead

remind him JBV that in this economy the nurse needs a job, and she probably looks forward to seeing him since he is not a winey butt.
4:39 pm
bichon

I moved Mom up to CT from FL. The doctors in her area were clueless. They wanted to perform surgery on the tumor without even delving into her cardiac problems
4:39 pm
JBV

right! actually he's enjoying their conversations - seems she's a rabid Obama fan!
4:40 pm
JBV

after much experience, my husband has come to the conclusion that "surgeons surge" - meaning it's their job to cut, so that's what they do
4:40 pm
hurshy

*grumble grumble*
4:41 pm
JBV

hi, hurshy, i've been grumbling too, so join the club
4:41 pm
redturtlehead

Surgeons indeed do surge, your husband is so right.
4:41 pm
redturtlehead

But if you can sell the SW as a navigator or concierge if you will, it could help.
4:42 pm
JBV

without revealing too much (in deference to hubby's wishes) - his case involves a colo-rectal surgeon, urologist, orthopedic surgeon (for osteomyelitis)
4:42 pm
redturtlehead

JBV is your Husband for McCain?
4:43 pm
JBV

oh, no - he is for Obama, so they are of like mind
4:43 pm
hurshy

i ordered some large items to be delivered to the office. i told them the address of our building. somehow they instead delivered it to yale's central receiving, even though that's not what's done, ever. some dunderhead signed for it, without wondering "hmm, this is large and heavy, perhaps i should send the fellow to deliver it where it needs to go" AND without notifying me, the actual recipient, that he HAD signed for it.
4:43 pm
JBV

red, how do I go about contacting the social worker , do I have to wait until he is a patient in the hospital?
4:43 pm
redturtlehead

excellent. I had a patient ask me if I was an Obama girl or a McCain girl... I was afraid to answer!
4:44 pm
redturtlehead

I dont think so JBV. he's got an ongoing relationship.
4:45 pm
bichon

The social worker came to see us when we were at the Cancer Center seeing the radiation therapist and Thoracic Surgeon for the first times
4:45 pm
redturtlehead

You have a few options. Call the Hospital Operator and ask to speak to Social Work... or Ding ding, bright idea, call and ask if he has a Case Manager- which is a Nurse who reviews charts and makes sure pt meet criteria etc...either one is a good resource...
4:46 pm
bichon

I used to be a case worker, so I was really open to it. It think the social workers really want to do everything they can to make the experience less burdensome
4:46 pm
redturtlehead

Or you can call the office...of the one he sees the most.
4:47 pm
redturtlehead

and they will point you in the right direction. Its a lot to deal with, and I think your huband would rather involve generic hospital people than say, your neighbour or pastor...
4:47 pm
JBV

that sounds good - no one here has mentioned it all, though. thanks for all your info
4:48 pm
redturtlehead

SOmetimes you have to ask for a little help with stuff...
4:49 pm
JBV

you are so right, red - I have been thinking that I also need to talk to someone just for myself - without letting him know how worried and stressed out I am, too
4:50 pm
redturtlehead

Yes JBV....especially with the caregiving you are now doing, which is not what your "signed up for"
4:51 pm
JBV

red, I have learned more than I ever wanted to know about wound care - but I know he would walk through hell for me, so we are in this together
4:52 pm
redturtlehead

Well, wound care is not my favorite thing, so I can empathize a bit with you!
4:53 pm
JBV

I also learned that there are nurses who specialize in wound care - how do people make such a decision?
4:53 pm
redturtlehead

My Aunt did it. I don't know, but often the opportunity comes with greater pay better hours etc...
4:56 pm
redturtlehead

but my aunt is a horrible little woman.
4:56 pm
JBV

oh, there goes my theory about nurses as angels LOL
4:56 pm
JBV

I guess there are all kinds in every profession
4:57 pm
JBV

I had a conversation today with my co-workers about some teachers we know who really don't seem to like children -

4:59 pm
JBV

some strange words here, nance and it's slow going for me
4:59 pm
redturtlehead

Oh JBV, we are regular people. I am sometimes completely indifferent to my patients, they get cared for...but...I wouldnt remember them 2 hours later.
4:59 pm
squidgy82000

it is a horrible grid
5:00 pm
nancethefan

well that means slow going for me also
5:00 pm
redturtlehead

Hi Squid....it's a so-so grid in my opinion. started off fast but got slow quick.
5:01 pm
redturtlehead

but for the most part, I find people interesting. so I usually end up talking to them and asking a bunch of questions...
5:02 pm
nancethefan

lol red
5:03 pm
nancethefan

5:05 pm
lil*monkey

5:05 pm
JBV

red, do you have a specialty in nursing - I mean, do you always work in one department of a hospital?
5:06 pm
redturtlehead

I do JBV, I am only an Emergency/Trauma Nurse. i actually dont know how to do anything else.
5:07 pm
JBV

and how did you choose that, if I may ask?
5:07 pm
katya

only? trauma nurses deal with people at their lowest and at their worst, you are NOT only a trauma nurse to some people you are their saviour
5:07 pm
redturtlehead

5:08 pm
redturtlehead

though it can be too busy. I just started my new contract this week and I will be seeing the dept tomorro and I am nervous...its a really busy place.
5:09 pm
JBV

and I guess every day is different, since you never know what is going to come in next
5:09 pm
redturtlehead

Yes, I never really know what my day will be like..I am rarely bored. heck, some days I can't go to the bathroom.
5:10 pm
JBV

I have a high stress job, too, but fortunately it does not involve life and death crises
5:11 pm
redturtlehead

Most of the time, my job involves people who have abdominal pain, luckily. :)
5:14 pm
redturtlehead

also good my job does not depend on my solving this grid. Eeek!
5:14 pm
redturtlehead

Monkey do you have the go** dancers???
5:15 pm
lil*monkey

yes, red :O
5:15 pm
JBV

5:16 pm
JBV

eg 7?
5:16 pm

I used to do that at one hospital which was not very busy...
5:16 pm

redturtlehead


A bundle of twigs, sticks, or branches bound together.
A bundle of pieces of iron or steel to be welded or hammered into bars.
5:26 pm
