2:17 am
westford

what do you need lady?
2:18 am
LadyNatts

the E, the Y in the 2nd column, and the bottom row N
2:18 am
westford

bottom row n is na4/4 and it's a bablet
2:19 am
unithorn

You guys rock with the clues...I keep leaving and coming back, thinking I'll just magically see things. I've never defeated a grid on my own, so I refuse to use the clue list...oi.
2:19 am
Birdeee

the e is eo 6/18
2:19 am
westford

the e is a longtime and folksinging Sylvia's partner
2:20 am
LadyNatts

not helping...that eo
2:20 am
westford

one y is what you say when surprised
2:20 am
westford

sort of like greek columns
2:21 am
LadyNatts

that's from the 4th column... got that one
2:21 am
Birdeee

think long period of time and then and then the greek columns OR very early greek musical mode
2:21 am
westford

the other sounds like a performer think he sings
2:22 am
westford

or like female singer Mitchell
2:22 am
westford

or a home permanent
2:22 am
LadyNatts

trying to remember my art history, and the greek columns... I'm so tired that it's not coming to me
2:22 am
Birdeee

West - I have the eo word and I still don't get your clues! I am a dense one
2:23 am
westford

for the y and n?
2:24 am
westford

you're not dense I am a poor clue giver
2:24 am
Birdeee

Lady there are different kinds of Greek columns - doric, corinthian and one "other one" You put the eo words that means long period of time in front of the "other one" and mash them together
2:24 am
Birdeee

West - I usually get your clues right away!
2:25 am
westford

once in awhile I get lucky lol
2:25 am
westford

how about singer
2:26 am
LadyNatts

Thanks, birdeee, I knew that... the only one I could think of was doric (which doesn't work here, btw). Corinthian, I didn't think of, and the "other one" is totally eluding me.
2:26 am
westford

Bennett but the feminine version and change the first letter for the y

2:26 am
Birdeee

The singer is for a y word that I have
2:26 am
unithorn

A lot of clues have to do with pop culture, or specific things that you may not know (of even heard of) based on your own interests and whatnot. Don't feel dense! I'm a junkie for random knowledge, and I still don't get all of the clues in here!
2:26 am
westford

oh bird you just need the n?
2:27 am
LadyNatts

and really, it won't kill me to go back to bed with a few blank tiles

2:27 am
Birdeee

2:28 am
unithorn

Oh.
2:28 am
Birdeee

2:29 am
westford

we're going to throw a lot of fish at you when you get it
2:29 am
unithorn

"longer than a millennium" + Janis ***
2:29 am
LadyNatts

I hate to say this, birdeee, but I'm better off with greek history than I am with geography (at which I am pathetic- much to my late father's dismay)
2:30 am
unithorn

Forgive me if I my spelling is off on the clue, I'm sleepy. Oh and yeehaw for me giving my first clue! *random glitter falls from the sky*
2:30 am

It went really well. He was shy about saying some stuff, but he perked up. He said it was sometimes fun, sometimes not so much, and he definitely wants to do it again. It turned out to be for a poem composed of around 60 people saying a word or sentence and then spliced together.

thanks for the hug and for caring, lady. I think some of what is happening could actually be good, btw. Haven't spoken with my sister in 8 years or so, she emailed me to tell me our mother is in hospital. Now we are talking. About the past too. Could be the start of something good, but it is... don't know the word.

answer
6:40 am
herinfernallady

About a week ago I sent a message to an old friend on facebook. Recently as of a few days ago his wife (who was my friend) has joined no response from either. Do i take that as a ) rude or b ) not interested or c) wrong email
6:42 am
sprite

Impossible to tell, lady. Perhaps you could drop her a message in FB and see if she replies to that?
6:42 am
Brookie

maybe they hadn't checked FB since she joined, herin
6:42 am
herinfernallady

That is what i am thinking. Its been a week but we all know the mysteries of FB
6:43 am
herinfernallady

I think i will give it one more try then declare it as rude much
6:44 am
sprite

I got swamped on FB, it was too much for me to keep up with. I can imagine I am not the only one who finds that hard... you might drop her a note and say you don't mean to push, just wasn't sure you got through.
6:44 am
herinfernallady

Thanks.
6:44 am
Brookie

and if it turns out they're just rude, then they're not worth the energy thinking about... but I still think they just haven't seen the message yet
6:45 am
herinfernallady

True. THanks
6:46 am
herinfernallady

Maybe i can then put up a message on our highschool board
6:46 am
herinfernallady

Its really funny that she was the ''naughty but not one to put out '' in school but she has only been with the one guy since high school and now they are married. Its like I was the good twin she was the naughty one and we swapped

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid. ....
9:14 am
crosshair

As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them. .....
9:15 am
crosshair

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life. ....
9:15 am
crosshair

She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. ....
9:15 am
crosshair

A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. ...
9:15 am
crosshair

I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one. ....

when I was online dating I had a complete wierdo but I didn't want to be banned from the site as I had started to talk to hubby so instead of telling him to f*** o** I had to say that I didn't feel we had a connection!
10:39 am
Atalante

how very delicate!
10:39 am
redturtlehead

I think that must have been interesting. I feel no connection....
10:40 am
KatieMcG

It took me hours to think of it!
10:40 am
KatieMcG

I couldn't get the initial response out of my head
10:40 am
Atalante

not surprised!
10:41 am
Atalante

why was he a complete wierdo?
10:41 am
KatieMcG

he wanted to be my teacher
10:41 am
Atalante

ooo!
10:41 am
KatieMcG

and we would work to overcome the issue of me liking his music
10:42 am
redturtlehead

whaaa?
10:42 am
KatieMcG

This was his first email, I had never spoken to him and have no idea how bad his musical tastes were
10:42 am
Atalante

LMAO well!!!
10:42 am

they must have been bad if he knew in advance you weren't going to like them LOL
10:42 am

he sounds clinically crazy, or he forgot who he was mailing!
10:42 am
KatieMcG

it also appeared that he was asking me to be his wife but that was open to interpretation
10:43 am
Atalante

how very forward
10:43 am
Atalante

haz would be horrified
10:43 am
KatieMcG

I kept it for ages as it made me laugh soooo much. It was that bad I thought it was a scam but friends who saw it said that he was indeed just clinically crazy
10:43 am

I would?
10:45 am
Haz1558

PHone.
10:45 am
Atalante

at katie being asked to be someone's wife on first email. sounds like something that would shock your sensitivities!
10:45 am
KatieMcG

In our first emails by total contrast Hubby & I said that there was no such thing as 'the one' and neither of us believed in love at first sight..........
10:45 am
KatieMcG

.........engaged 5 months later :-)
10:45 am
Atalante

loooooool fab!
10:45 am
KatieMcG

Oh how we have eaten those words!
10:47 am

One of my friends is now internet dating and laughed when I told her there was loads of nutters out there and she had to be careful and take things slowly.
10:47 am
Haz1558

Love at first sight is one thing, sight unseen and personality unknown is quite another.
10:48 am
LadyNatts

internet is how I met my hubby
10:48 am
KatieMcG

quite Haz. And I did have safety mechanisms for our first few dates just in case.
10:49 am

Ejector seat at the restaurant?
10:49 am

See happy stories everywhere :-) As our friends would say, it's amazing what you can buy on the net
10:49 am
Haz1558

Trap doors through which to fall?
10:49 am
Atalante

a Tardis in the corner?
10:50 am
KatieMcG

Lol Haz I should have thought of that, more people knowing where I was and who I was with and what time I would be phoning to say I was safe. I didn't use Mari & Mr Mari in case they took the table next to us to make sure I was safe ;-)
10:50 am
Haz1558

Shaven headed aggressive looking men at the standby?
10:50 am

They'd have worn disguises, though, wouldn't they?

*unlurking* this is the FUNNIEST conversation... (says the woman who hooked up with Tom the day after swearing off men "forever"...)

Actually, it could be a service provided to dating folk.

hi all. I met ken through match.com, although he llived around the corner from me and I had known his wife (deceased) for years, been in his house and all
10:52 am
KatieMcG

Laughing so hard!
10:52 am
stidmama

hey dorens!
10:52 am
KatieMcG

Oh Dorens, we used match.com as well :-)
10:54 am
Dorens

we might have gotten around to considering dating each other at some point anyway, but not sure.. However, when he contacted me, he had a pretty good idea that I was me , or I was I, or whatever
10:54 am
KatieMcG

I did go on chat rooms as well, usually it took 3 questions before I was asked either for my bra size, a topless photo or if I had a web cam. There really are some forward people out there
10:54 am
stidmama

Tom and I are pre-internet... sorta. 18 years ago it was still mostly BBS and such...
10:54 am
KatieMcG

that is such a nice story Dorens
10:54 am
Dorens

98% (at least) are frogs, Katie
10:54 am
stidmama

wow katie! *very glad to be from the old school dating ... "met through friends" ...*
10:55 am
Atalante

were you asked that on Babble too? Which male was the perviest?
10:56 am
Dorens

actually we dated for about five months, then stopped... someone swooped in and married him, it took two years for them to figure out what it was a mistake he'd made, and then we got back together. Round 2 is very pleasant
10:56 am
KatieMcG

When I first started to go out it was such a culture shock, when I was young you didn't leave your drink in case someone nicked it, 14 years later you didn't leave your drink in case someone spiked it!
10:56 am
Dorens

must have been men who are no longer around
10:57 am
KatieMcG

The only man I talked to on babble & MSN was Mikey, and we can safely say that he wasn't intrested :-)
10:57 am
Atalante

LMAO
10:57 am
Atalante

nooooooo
10:58 am
KatieMcG

but he was a good friend, made me laugh and taught me to use MSN, I do regret losing touch
10:58 am
Atalante

I wonder where he is now
10:59 am
KatieMcG

I don't know why he stopped playing
10:59 am
Haz1558

In Berlin of course.
10:59 am
Haz1558

Ata annoyed him.
10:59 am
stidmama

Mikey used to lurk, he was offended by something someone said in the chat
10:59 am
Haz1558

It's all her fault.
10:59 am
KatieMcG

LOL
10:59 am
Atalante

blame FM
10:59 am
Dorens

can't it be fmitch's fault? i thought everything was hers
11:00 am
KatieMcG

talking of fault I haven't see FM for ages
11:00 am
Atalante

was it Hurshy he really really disliked? I can't remember!
11:00 am
hurshy

he better have!
11:00 am
Dorens

hahaha her legacy lives on though
11:00 am
stidmama

blame me, actually -- apparently he didn't believe that I had no control over what others said in the chog!
11:00 am
stidmama

hello hurshy!
11:00 am
Atalante

yes, come and chat FM, I know you're lurking. Just for a minute or two
11:00 am
Dorens

don't you stid?
11:00 am
redturtlehead

now that to me is someone who is overly involved in the chat.
11:00 am
hurshy

hello
11:00 am
Dorens

hi hurshy, hi fm if you're out there
11:00 am
stidmama

hello dear red!
11:00 am
Haz1558

It was all to do with jibes from Noblelover, a callow youth who insulted Mikey for using German.
11:01 am
Atalante

ohhhh Noblelover! yes!
11:01 am
stidmama

LOL well, I suppose if I had been on at the time and if I had really wanted to use my magic powers... oh well.
11:01 am
stidmama

I had forgotten noblelover!
11:01 am
Haz1558

Using German in the log. Nobleloser, as Mikey named him, objected to him using German, thought it was showing off. Mikey *wasn't* impressed.
11:02 am
Haz1558

When the rest of the chat log members didn't rise as one in his defence, Mikey got upset.
11:02 am
hurshy

i had forgotten noble too! *shocked at self*
11:02 am
Dorens

hope nobleloser never said that to Inge
11:02 am
Haz1558

Not that I take any interest in the log at all, you understand.
11:02 am
stidmama

I think inge was the other person speaking at the time...
11:02 am
Atalante

how could we forget noble!!
11:02 am
KatieMcG

how is using your own language showing off, being able to do babble in a second language surely is far more of an accomplishment
11:03 am
stidmama

LOL Haz! of course not -- you are obviously distracted most of the time you are here...
11:03 am
Haz1558

Noble was just foolish, but instead of laughing it off, Mikey just got more and more indignant.
11:03 am
Atalante

I think it was more than he'd use it a lot in the chat so no-one else could understand
11:03 am
KatieMcG

I must have dipped out during the noble months, either that or I have blocked them out
11:03 am
redturtlehead

oh no... Darth Dude, Dc Seain and I were using some spanish the other day. I suppose we were showing off.....ah well...
11:03 am

Wow! It looks like I missed loads while I wasn't playing much!!

11:04 am

hey harp! hey tinks!
11:04 am
redturtlehead

I do not recall him, but I recall Mikey.
11:04 am
stidmama

oh this was a couple years ago tinks...
11:04 am
Haz1558

Absolutely stid - I retain very little detail.
11:04 am
hurshy

actually, i am not sure noble even really thought that using another language was showing off - mikey's entire personality irked him, so he just said whatever came into his head
11:04 am
Haz1558

Noblelover only appeared for a few days, he wasn't a long term player.
11:04 am
tinks

Oh - before I started getting overly involved in chat then
11:04 am
Dorens

before my time, i retain little detail, but beefs like that stay with me
11:05 am
Atalante

Mikey was definitely one of those ppl you either loved or hated
11:05 am
KatieMcG

it clearly worked hurshy
11:05 am
hurshy

it is unsurprising that a straightforward teen boy would find mikey irksome.
11:05 am
hydra

I'm popping in like harpjane to say a little 'hello'. I'm enjoying all the chat! I never knew Mikey or Noblelover
11:06 am
redturtlehead

Well, I dont really see a point of having a "conversation in another language" that no one else can understand, or few people can...
11:06 am
stidmama

hello hydra!
11:06 am
Atalante

*has a sudden vision of Mikey and NancyBoy in the same chat*
11:06 am

Hi stid. Hi everyone.
11:06 am
KatieMcG

LOL ata

*gasp* you did NOT just say that ata! rofl...
11:06 am

hi Hydra.
11:06 am
Dorens

hi hydra, tinks, red and anyone else
11:07 am
KatieMcG

people do drift in and out though, I was really friendly with armygirl last Christmas but haven't see her for over a year
11:07 am
stidmama

well, it's like when I use French with Une, or German with inge... it's fun to touch base with someone who doesn't mind practicing
11:07 am
Atalante

they'd try and outflounce each other :)
11:07 am
tinks

sorry - should say hi all - i get distracted and keep losing track of the chat
11:07 am
stidmama

(Nancy Boy would win)
11:07 am
Dorens

you showoff, stid...
11:07 am
Atalante

yes, he would!
11:07 am
Haz1558

red - Mikey just conversed a little with inge and other German speakers - a mild irritant at best to those who didn't know what they were talking about.
11:07 am
KatieMcG

it would be a very very strong completition but it depends how much humour you want. Nancy is very funny
11:07 am
hurshy

noble had trouble getting the hang of being polite to people in general because he was so high-spirited. i remember now, because i chatted with him off-site and we had a code word that i would say in here to tell him to pull back on his humor
11:08 am
redturtlehead

Oh for that I could care less.
11:08 am
redturtlehead

people can speak to others in a variety of languages...
11:08 am
Haz1558

'Shut up'?
11:08 am
KatieMcG

LOL Haz
11:08 am
Atalante

it was something cunning. ish.
11:08 am
redturtlehead

shut up is probably too direct!
11:09 am
Haz1558

Well, as long as it was in English and not some pesky foreign language.
11:09 am
KatieMcG

it's funny but I remember so few people from the start of my babble life, Hurshy I do remember :-) I used to play very late at night because I was training Fuggles
11:09 am
Dorens

fermez la guelle
11:09 am
stidmama

I have fun trying to decipher things when people are conversing in something I used to study... but then I don't ever mind just asking what a phrase or word means (nosy me)
11:09 am
Haz1558

Dorens!
11:09 am
stidmama

LOL shut your trap???
11:09 am
redturtlehead

Ok Dorens, very sorry!
11:10 am
Dorens

hahahaha
11:10 am
hurshy

well you know, at the time i was working with teen boys, and while many people thought noble was just plain rude, it did seem to me that he was not trying to be rude, but was just ... high-spirited... so i tried to help him fit in. i'm rather sorry he didn't stick around.
11:10 am
Dorens

high spirited is good terminology, hursh. he probably would have benefited from more contact with you
11:11 am
Haz1558

Alas, plain speaking is not fashionable.
11:11 am
stidmama

speaking as a mother of teen boys... I do the same when I can hurshy -- it's a good thing to try to encourage young people to improve their communication skills
11:11 am
KatieMcG

apart from trolls it's a shame to lose everyone, diversity is why this game is so good
11:11 am
Atalante

he was too high-spirited but they was nothing nasty about him at all
11:11 am
KatieMcG

*anyone
11:11 am
stidmama

I want "tapir" to work...
11:12 am
Atalante

but we've certainly had worse
11:12 am
Dorens

i don't know.... some people who have problems with talks about politics or anything where there are two sides...
11:12 am
Dorens

stid, you can have tapip!
11:12 am
hurshy

so katie remembers me from early on... praps "hurshy" is just a very memorable handle
11:12 am
Dorens

nah hursh, it isn't the handle, it's the wit
11:12 am
Atalante

and you happy about your kitty being in the grid?
11:13 am
stidmama

or something similar... thanks dorens! halfway!
11:13 am
hurshy

of course ata :)
11:13 am
Atalante

*are you happy!
11:13 am
redturtlehead

thankfully the election is pretty much over. It was a difficult chat time and a few people did make me very annoyed.
11:13 am
Haz1558

(Now searching in the memory banks for 'those who have been worse')
11:13 am
KatieMcG

you were always very kind when I was getting the hang of the game and trying for fireworks at 1 am in the morning whilst trying to catch fuggy and get him back in his cage :-)
11:13 am
Atalante

I cheered when I saw him :)
11:13 am
stidmama

I don't like it when people do "name calling" in the chat log or are demeaning.
11:14 am
Dorens

i think everyone is entitled to their opinion... I might not agree or like them, but when people say we can't discuss a subject, that bothers me
11:14 am
redturtlehead

Oh stid I tried tapir tooo, its phantom day so very appropriate.
11:14 am
hurshy

there are those who would be surprised to hear me remembered for kindness! lol
11:14 am
stidmama

there was a young person about the time madi started who had a lot of trouble with being polite...
11:14 am
hurshy

the worst is just when you get a BUNCH of kids who know each other
11:14 am
Atalante

yes!
11:14 am
KatieMcG

There you go then, quote me if needed in the future
11:14 am
Dorens

that's the time to concentrate on the grid, then
11:15 am
Haz1558

My problem with the political talk was that it was so relentless. It was also so heavily skewed on one side that it must have been intimidating to have had a different point of view.
11:15 am
stidmama

oh -- tyop is in the grid. so I had better be careful how my figners work today!
11:15 am
KatieMcG

That's when I feel really old as I have no clue what they are talking about
11:15 am
stidmama

nut used to scare me silly... she would come in, and I would LEAVE.
11:15 am
Haz1558

Just be glad, Katie, just be glad.
11:15 am

11:16 am
KatieMcG

There was a young girl with a trauma a while ago, the men were fantastic at getting her to see her dad's side, I was just happy to be old
11:16 am
KatieMcG

why?
11:16 am
Haz1558

Madi's friend - Sarah somebody? She was all, like, whatever.
11:16 am
Atalante

Lawyer1 used to scare me cos he was so darn intelligent
11:16 am
Dorens

yes i remember... sometimes madi would scold her
11:16 am
stidmama

I know Dorens, I can walk up to a teen boy who is MUCH bigger than me and tell him to pick up his garbage... but I am not good at other sorts of confrontation.
11:16 am
Haz1558

Anybody else need smelling salts?
11:17 am
Haz1558

Ata - scared of intelligence?
11:17 am
hurshy

i just wish the nice kids would stick around. bex hardly ever plays, and i do miss scribble too!
11:17 am
stidmama

yes, and there was a girl who had some sort of "christian" name who came in and tried to proselytize... THAT was annoying.
11:17 am
Atalante

lawyer1 was *hyper* intelligent!
11:17 am
Dorens

how about mousy? (and yes, haz, i wondered about that)
11:18 am
KatieMcG

I don't think anyone has scared me, I don't like confrontation so if there is a squabble I usually lurk for a couple of days until it blows over
11:18 am
rururocks

what about that smart-assed ruru?
11:18 am
hurshy

mousy, lol, he was a kick. i actually have a favorite WWE wrestler because of him...
11:18 am
Haz1558

Of which mousy do we speak? Mousy, Mousy 1, Mousy 2, Mousy 3?
11:18 am
stidmama

I miss mousy...
11:18 am
Atalante

oh yeah, him too!
11:18 am
ItalianGreyhound

Looking for a martini in this grid
11:18 am
hurshy

11:18 am
stidmama

oh that ruru! he is something else...
11:18 am
KatieMcG

11:18 am
redturtlehead

11:18 am
stidmama

oops. YOU CHANGED YOUR ICON! you stinker!
11:18 am
hurshy

11:18 am
Haz1558

It's a good job ruru has left, isn't it?
11:18 am
hurshy

bex was not bullied
11:18 am
Ping

what happened to mousy?
11:18 am
stidmama

hello ping!
11:19 am
Ping

hi friends
11:19 am
Haz1558

Are you thinking of Miyavi Fan?
11:19 am
hurshy

you can't bully bex, she's very sturdy.
11:19 am
rururocks

yeah.. good riddance I say..
11:19 am
Atalante

bex was lovely, from newcastle area
11:19 am
Haz1558

Mousy got over-cloned and ran out of strength.
11:19 am
Ping

hi stid!
11:19 am
Dorens

mousy did hve several names as I recall
11:19 am
stidmama

I liked miyavi fan -- it's been AGES since was non
11:19 am
Haz1558

Hello Ping.
11:19 am
Dorens

good way of putting it haz. hi ping
11:19 am
stidmama

LOL ruru -- so which puppy is this today?
11:19 am
Ping

hi haz
11:19 am
Haz1558

Yes, that ruru. He was a case.
11:19 am
KatieMcG

She was about 14 and played after school. I think she had a tough time at school but loved coming on the grid
11:20 am
KatieMcG

I can't remember ruru, what was he like?
11:20 am
hurshy

the thing that really impressed me about bex was that she dated some boy who was getting too clingy and she just said, i'm not putting up with THAT. she's so centered.
11:20 am
Haz1558

I think it was Miyavi. She had a fascination with all things Japanese, didn't she?
11:20 am
Haz1558

Ruru? Hard to describe. Words aren't my forte....
11:20 am
redturtlehead

Ruru are the puppies here?
11:20 am
stidmama

oh ruru -- he was, um... peculiar.

but in a sorta nice-ish way if you could get past his bristly outer shell
11:20 am
rururocks

that ruru was always making disparaging comments abouit president bush...
11:20 am
KatieMcG

yep I think you are right Haz, I know Mari used to worry about her school life
11:21 am
hurshy

and then there was the whole lemon incident.
11:21 am
stidmama

lemon???
11:21 am
Haz1558

There was a big drama about a Japanese boy -she got very upset.
11:21 am
rururocks

p -QU-ELLE- IAR is right stid
11:21 am
Ping

this ruru is the only one that i remember
11:21 am
Haz1558

Do you remember the details, hurshy?
11:22 am
stidmama

*grin* so ruru.... HOW OLD IS THAT PUPPY>????
11:22 am
hurshy

some...
11:22 am
KatieMcG

I'm sure Mari warned me about strange men and puppies
11:22 am
Haz1558

Something to do with meeting him online, him being bullied, him having leukaemia etc.
11:22 am
rururocks

This one is six weeks old
11:22 am
redturtlehead

is it your new baby?
11:23 am
redturtlehead

Or justone of the litter.
11:23 am
KatieMcG

.....he's going to offer sweeties soon!
11:23 am
Kazzer99

ruru it is sooo cute
11:23 am
Haz1558

And in ruru you have a strange man with potential puppies. The very worst.
11:23 am
Atalante

oh gosh, yes, I remember that now
11:23 am
rururocks

no ..not yet..
11:23 am
stidmama

very sweet, ruru. *mama heart melts*
11:23 am
hurshy

lemon (i forget his full name) was presented as a japanese boy whose family had moved to england. he and miyavi therefore had a lot in common. and yes, he had a lot of problems. but then it became a question as to whether lemon was even real, or a creation of miya's. to this day i can't make up my mind if i think he was real or not.
11:23 am
redturtlehead

but ruru is it the one?
11:23 am
Haz1558

There was a big denouncing by someone we had never heard of.
11:23 am
KatieMcG

Oh I remember that now, he was soooo made up
11:23 am
rururocks

no.. he hasn't been conceived yet
11:23 am
stidmama

(speaking of "true love" and "finding the perfect match")
11:23 am
hurshy

yes, that was peachykeen.
11:24 am
Atalante

I suspect he wasn't real
11:24 am
Haz1558

The very one! hurshy, you obviously pay as little attention to the log as I do.
11:24 am
hurshy

i do believe miya's teacher came on and indicated to us that lemon was not real.
11:24 am
hurshy

was she rolin's student, or someone else?
11:24 am
redturtlehead

Ahhhh, I thought since you said Puppy later in year it was a bit early.
11:24 am
Haz1558

I think the inference was that he wasn't real but that Miyavi didn't realise that he wasn't kosher (is that mixing metaphors or something?)
11:25 am
Haz1558

She was rolin's student, yes.
11:25 am
KatieMcG

who got their class to play it in Australia and all hell broke out?
11:25 am
rururocks

did she ever come back as limey?
11:25 am
hurshy

i'm not sure... i was left with the impression that he WAS a second account miya had created.
11:25 am
Haz1558

Xanika
11:25 am
Atalante

miyavi was near the bunsfield chemical plant that went poof. or however it was spelled
11:25 am
Dorens

oh i tremember that katie, but not the teacher's name. that was terrible though
11:25 am
Atalante

and Miss Abs
11:26 am
Haz1558

Let me have five minutes to hyperventilate at the memory, Katie.
11:26 am
rururocks

I wonder sometimes if Ruru ever existed...**looks down at Navel **
11:26 am
KatieMcG

looking back it was really really funny, what a stupid thing to do!
11:26 am
hurshy

and during the whole debacle someone accused ME of creating a second account and BEING peachykeen. that is why i remember it so well.
11:26 am
stidmama

brb tom wants to talk...
11:26 am
redturtlehead

oh I do recall that one. It was annoying. but entertaining too.
11:26 am
Atalante

loooooool
11:26 am
Haz1558

It is possible that ruru is just a second account by someone. Could Mikey live on in Ruru?
11:26 am
KatieMcG

good grief doesn't he know you are down memory lane
11:27 am
Dorens

the nerve of that man!
11:27 am
Haz1558

I didn't know that, hurshy! You supposedly peachykeen?
11:27 am
KatieMcG

ruru doesn't flounce enough!
11:27 am
redturtlehead

Ruru has a Tutu....I think he can flounce.
11:27 am
hurshy

someone suggested it one day, yes. it didn't get a lot of play.
11:27 am
rururocks

ya know I haven't seen Hurshy and peachykeen at the same time...hmmm
11:27 am
Dorens

maybe mikey/ruru has learned?
11:28 am
redturtlehead

I remember Moonwolf, and she has just disappated.
11:28 am
Haz1558

He doesn't have enough *asterisks* to be Mikey, nicht wahr? Hmmm?
11:28 am
Haz1558

Moonwoof she was.
11:28 am
KatieMcG

LOL haz
11:28 am
redturtlehead

yes haz, that is it. I used to play later at night when I was in NM and chatted with her a lot.
11:29 am
Dorens

i still miss curtis... chg or cts or whatever, who was so taken with ren and nut
11:29 am
Ping

chj, maybe?
11:29 am

Again, not that I take any notice of people's little idiosyncr - peculiarities.
11:29 am

11:29 am

11:30 am
rururocks

11:30 am
Dorens

It was back in the day, but she was alright. then she just disappated.
11:32 am

12:22 pm
dcseain

i think of those as different words, but right you are, ata. I even already had pa4
12:23 pm
Atalante

so do I, it only occurred to me as I was typing it!
12:23 pm
LadyNatts

but you should have gone to the PB for it... I didn't notice either, since you were talking in French
12:23 pm
Dorens

doesn't count if he wrote it in french
12:24 pm
dcseain

exactly, Natts :)
12:24 pm
dcseain

fresh from the oven! careful, let them cool a few, so you don't get burnt on the chocolate!
12:24 pm
Judi

Afternoon, one and all. Only in French would the words "pa4" and chocolate appear together. Completely foreign thought for most of us.
12:25 pm
dcseain

the Dutch combine them, too Judy :)
12:25 pm
Atalante

I can even nearly smell them
12:25 pm

12:26 pm
jjks

I am pa**ed if I have to pass up chocolat ;)
12:26 pm
Dorens

you're making me have to go out in this bitter cold weather to get pa** au chocolat.... that comment about smelling them its what did it
12:26 pm
dcseain

well, that happens, too dorens, but is not what i meant in this case
12:26 pm
LadyNatts

well the pa4 word is bread in french
12:26 pm
Judi

Pa4 as a feeling, not a bread.
12:26 pm
Atalante

sorry dorens! it's just such an evocative smell though!
12:27 pm

oooh, tough question from a friend: On the whole are people better off or worse off than they were 30 years ago?
2:24 pm
kje

better
2:24 pm
mrpresident

better off
2:24 pm
kje

depends on what you look at, but despite what we feel like after the past 8 years, overall we are better off
2:24 pm
stidmama

It depends a little I think seain -- where they live and what "better" means. I am better off because I have my tom and family.
2:25 pm
kje

better off than 30 years ago I mean... just want to clarify that!
2:25 pm
stidmama

but 30 years ago my family had just moved from an urban area to the outskirts of a podunk little town that thought it was the state capitol.

In the US, the middle class is shrinking global warming is not taken seriously, the national debt is staggering, our financial markets are teetering; and the politicians, as usual, are posturing
2:26 pm

30 years ago my "career" was babysitting and doing yard work. Now my career is parenting and doing yard work. Not much job promotion, methinks!
