vas thats what i would have thought too
12:20 am
jillibus

no, rElise, it would be ba4/6 because B scores 3 pts
12:21 am
rEliseMe

Oh. Okay, but without the points, it's ba4?
12:21 am
Pinikula

there no A next to a B...so ba4 doesn't work in this grid
12:21 am
rEliseMe

Or do you always list points?
12:21 am
jillibus

yes, rElise, but it's a lot better to think of the points
12:22 am

ns" means... Tennessee-ism.
12:32 am
rEliseMe

Oops! I accidentally hit enter... I'm still at a loss as to what "You'ns" means. It's a tennessee-ism. I think it's something similar to "you-ones" but no one ever says that anyway.

5:27 am
herinfernallady

Oh. Kazz have you also seen the doc again
5:30 am
Kazzer99

yes - defo a pulled muscles on the left side - thinks is the pectoral muscle. that has calmed donw now so that i can feel the ribs again the right side - but i ned to go back to work - as much as i love babble daytime tele is destroying my brain
5:30 am
herinfernallady

Poor Kaz
5:33 am
Kazzer99

still it got me off work for 2 weeks which is always nice in january - i also managed to do some home planning stuff that i never seemd to find time to do and get the diaries ready for 2009 - me and hubby have a big plan for this year and it needed to be formalised which i have been doing

6:25 am

Jorjah, get scrapbooks, photo albums and journals for the family. Talk, talk, talk. Cry, cry,cry. And somehow a new normal becomes accepted, one without a loved one in our physical presence.
6:25 am
Trifioso

that is really good advice, scrab!
6:25 am

where do I get my flag from?

3:40 pm
bichon

3:40 pm
Atalante

3:42 pm

Atalante

hi trif!
4:09 pm
Trifioso

hello ata....still madly in love with you, by the way. You are a truly gifted artisan
4:09 pm
Atalante

LOL :D thank you!!
4:10 pm
Trifioso

I suffer under a terrible curse - I am a little big good at a lot of things, and truly excellent at very little. It makes me a great trivial pursuit player, but not good enough to make a career out of much
4:11 pm
Atalante

I think the same most days!
4:11 pm
Trifioso

i think i have ADD too - i get all interested in something, and I am just mad about it for a while, and then i lose interest.
4:12 pm
Atalante

ditto!
4:12 pm
Kazzer99

back again - anyone got the first la?
4:13 pm
Trifioso

do you think most artistic people are like that? I have a suspicion that many are. I have, of course, met a few totally focused arty people, but they really were singularly minded
4:13 pm
Atalante

I think a lot are
4:13 pm
Trifioso

i don't kazzer, all apologies
4:13 pm
Atalante

4:18 pm
Trifioso

it is all of 35 degrees F here today, but I swear, it feels like we could go outside in tee shirts, it is such a significant change
4:19 pm
bichon

Trif, ths is the first cool and cludy day I've had in CA.
4:20 pm
Trifioso

are you in the southern part, or up north?
4:26 pm

Bay Area, south of SF. It's actually showering her. Severe lack of precip this winter
4:29 pm

Trifioso

hello feather! I think it is a good mix of weird and usual
4:35 pm
featherbee

gotta watch LOST tonight, so won't be able to concentrate except during commercials
4:37 pm
Trifioso

oh, feather, my son is BEGGING me to let him skip scouts tonight, just so he can watch it....i am sorely tempted, I must admit
4:38 pm
Atalante

these things are important!
4:38 pm
Trifioso

but we have a DVR....
4:38 pm
Atalante

not the same
4:40 pm
featherbee

record it, let him stay up to watch it after scouts
4:40 pm
Atalante

Lost is more important than scouts!
4:41 pm
kje

hi
4:41 pm
featherbee

lol, such an enabler ata!
4:41 pm
featherbee

hiya kje!
4:41 pm
Trifioso

it is, and it isn't. I figure, to be fair, I shouldn't watch it until he comes home either. oh, the denial!
4:42 pm
Atalante

well what are they doing at scouts tonight?
4:43 pm
featherbee

compromise? tell him just for tonight he can stay home, but the rest of hte time he has to watch it after you, recorded?
4:44 pm
Trifioso

compromise - he goes to scouts, and I don't watch it til he comes home. He made a commitment!
4:44 pm

Atalante

just let him stay home!
4:46 pm
Trifioso

be 6, 24 please???
4:47 pm
kje

no... do NOT let him stay home... TV is NOT more important than other activities
4:47 pm
kje

but that is my bias... I refuse to plan a life around the TV - ridiculous!
4:47 pm
Atalante

1 episode of 1 TV show can be just as interesting as an evening of something else!
4:47 pm
Trifioso

it's okay, kje, he is going. no worries.
4:48 pm
Trifioso

so. no clue for me then? bad mommy penalty?
4:48 pm
Atalante

I'm glad I didn't have you as my mom!!!
4:48 pm

the best part is if you tivo or tape it you can zip through the commercials
4:48 pm

4:48 pm
JBV

what a time to join in - you remind me of someone who came to my husband's retirement party with a mini portable TV so she could watch her soap opera (novela) !!!! I vote for scouts, not TV - tape it for him
4:48 pm
Atalante

4:49 pm
Atalante

I didn't even have a TV till I was 18!
4:49 pm
JBV

hello everyone - and can I even admit to this crowd that we don't watch Lost at all
4:50 pm
Trifioso

I watched THOUSANDS of hours of tv as a kid. Literally glued to the thing. Have regretted that some, and are more strict with my kids, but there you go.
4:50 pm
kje

ours came and went.. depending on my parents conviction at any given time
4:50 pm
Atalante

but I'd shackle myself to the TV to stay home for the 1st Lost epi!
4:51 pm
Kazzer99

my hubby is addicted to lost but i got fed up with a show not going anywhere
4:51 pm
Trifioso

JBV, of course you can admit it! I have never watched a single solitary episode of CSI, or any of it's spin offs, which some people find incomprehensible
4:52 pm
Atalante

I loved seasons 1 and 2, got utterly bored in season 3 and then loved season 4 again
4:52 pm
magazinemom

JBV- I watched one episode with the ex-DH and just wasn't interested
4:52 pm
Kazzer99

he is also addicted to Battlestar which is on at the mo and i said he could watch it cos i'd rather be here with you all
4:52 pm
JBV

there are very few series I find watchable any more - the police and forensics ones are just so gory and disgusting = they are trying to outdo each other with more outrageous scenes
4:52 pm
kje

4:53 pm

4:53 pm
Kazzer99

i must admit to be addicted to cookery programs
4:53 pm
JBV

we watch a lot of old movies (Turner Classic channel) and I would rather watch a national geographic special on spiders that some of these inane situation comedies or sensational dramas

kje

the other I have a lot in common with, but he is kind of dull, though very nice
5:05 pm

5:05 pm
JBV

you must be quite busy, kje....
5:05 pm

my basic bias is that opposites attract but make horrible long term relationships - what words of wisdom do you have?
5:05 pm
Dorens

nice counts for more as i get older
5:05 pm
JBV

i'd go for "amuses" rather than "dull"
5:06 pm
kje

I'm not "doing" 2 guys simultaneously... lets' just get that straight, dorens - LOL
5:06 pm
Dorens

amusement is important though... he HAS to be able to make you laugh
5:06 pm

5:21 pm

bichon, the British flag you're used to is made up of three crosses -- St. Andrew for Scotland (white diagonals on blue), St Patrick for Ireland (rediagonals on white) and St George (England)
5:21 pm

5:22 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

most americans don't know the diff between England and the UK, let alone the flags. me, i'm a flag nut 8-)
5:22 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

plus, most of us think "British" means "English" and don't know that the Welsh and Scottish are "British" also
5:23 pm
nbjasmine

i know the diff but i thought the other ones had different flags anyway
5:23 pm
bichon

MOst Americans don't know a lot about any foreign country. They really don't teach geography like they used to. In fact, most Americans can't name their US rep. or senator
5:23 pm
Atalante

well that's an interesting question. they are really Great Britons. Cos Briton = v English
5:23 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

bichon, you got that right
5:24 pm

so then, if england's flag is red on white, then i still wonder, don't the others have their own?

stidmama

6:09 pm
Katydid0615

well take care of yourself first. you are no good in class if you can't concentrate and learn anything. But does the babbling bother the eye infection?
6:10 pm
stidmama

not as much as reading books, to be honest. I can't wear my glasses though.
6:11 pm
Katydid0615

reading books can be harder on the eyes than the computer if you have a decent monitor.
6:12 pm
stidmama

yes, the brightness of the monitor seems to help a lot. which is funny because when I have a migraine I can read books but not the computer.

Six word memoirs = using 2 words to summarize yourself or your life. Some are funny, some sad, many are SO creative and well-thought out. The first book (compilation) is a best-seller. I read it in 20 min.
