You can't afford, workwise, to have some real sick days?

Haz1558

So you're not going to be firing on all cylinders for a while. I hope it's all worth it in the end, that's the most important thing.

haz, it's either laugh or cry at the moment. i choose to laugh
7:04 am
Haz1558

You're quite right - I'm sure there will be days when it will be hard to summon a smile let alone a laugh, but keep looking for the positives and they'll come through eventually.
7:04 am
Haz1558

All I know is that I'm remembering that arthrodesis word and will be triumphant if it ever appears in the grid.

THat is nice Katie
7:06 am

I'd be awfully suspicious about those two parcels from e-bay.
7:06 am
grannyrose

thanx herin, i hope it's worth it!!!!
7:07 am
KatieMcG

sadly they are linked to the train set!

Haz1558

He has a train set? My husband's only regret about having daughters is that he had no excuse for a train set.
7:07 am
herinfernallady

I would to Katie
7:08 am
grannyrose

lyn, maybe not such a good idea.kate might need to sleep........
7:08 am
KatieMcG

he has a whole room for it. I worked out early in our relationship that he needed 'boy space' which would mean he didn't keep altering the rest of the house
7:08 am
herinfernallady

Cute Katie
7:09 am
grannyrose

does anyone else get doghouse gifts from their other half?
7:09 am
Haz1558

Katie, he could be doing far worse than playing with trains.
7:09 am
KatieMcG

I have put my foot down on him knocking down retaining walls to build a tunnel
7:09 am
herinfernallady

What is a gift? I get spoilt always
7:09 am
KatieMcG

exactly Haz, keeps him quiet and safe and everyone needs a hobby
7:10 am
grannyrose

7:10 am
KatieMcG

7:10 am
Haz1558

There's something about trains. I can't see the same attraction with Scalectrix etc, but trains are fun.
7:10 am
grannyrose

aaawwww, that's so sweet
7:10 am
herinfernallady

Yep he is
7:11 am
KatieMcG

I have found that I can now discuss the colour the grass should be and what trees I prefer and automatically pick up no more nails whenever I see it for sale
7:11 am
lynxxx

Katie probably designs the towns for him - or at least oversees
7:12 am
Haz1558

He doesn't change the colour of the grass to fit the season? Or sprinkle snow at Christmas time?
7:12 am
KatieMcG

Oh hadn't thought of the snow, a bit of icing sugar on christmas eve would be a great idea
7:12 am
Haz1558

If he had a station he could have all the little figures carrying lots of shopping.
7:13 am
Haz1558

It would be nice, wouldn't it? I'm wasted, I should have a train set.
7:13 am
KatieMcG

think of the hours of fun, and you can get little people with bags of shopping honestly
7:14 am
Haz1558

Does he get his stuff from e-bay most of the time or is there another source of train goods?

ca7 - looks and perhaps sounds like ca plus a misspelled attorney or solicitor.

Haz1558

Or ca plus two letters (** and behold) plus 365 days minus a vowel.
9:27 am
harpjane

The second ca7 - three letters for headgear, combine with a word relating to the spoken word.

You're welcome.
9:28 am

The j's must be really bad. I can't monkey a single one.
9:28 am
Haz1558

They're odd. A letter short of an old banger of a car, and its plural.
9:28 am
jacq

judi like the wrecked car
9:29 am

Then change the second vowel in the old car crock, plural again.
9:29 am
Judi

Ty for clues for clunkers.

9:30 am

I actually babble better while chatting. Somehow seems to free my mind to cough up weird words.
2:09 pm
EvaNadine

sadly, i think i will probably opt out of real cooking and either crack open a can of beefaroni or else make a box of mac-n-cheese...
2:10 pm

unless someone cares to treat me to sushi. :D
2:10 pm

sushi! Of course. Any time.
2:10 pm

2:16 pm

thats a bummer FM
2:16 pm

2:16 pm

2:18 pm
EvaNadine

really? they dont have boxed mac-n-cheese in the UK?
its just the dried macaroni noodles. you cook those like any other pasta. then youve got either a cheese sauce that you squeeze over the noodles (and the heat melts it to the right consistency) or else you get a powdered cheese that you mix with milk + butter.
2:18 pm

hey -- kid just reminded me about the bees on the pavement at the meeting last week -- any entomologists around?
5:27 pm
stidmama

there were HUNDREDS of bees of at least four varieties on the red bricks under some sort of oak (spiky leaves, looked like the ones from back east) at the college on the warm days. It was like they were licking up sap? And getting royally drunk. At least some of them were literally on their backs. And a few of them were so confused when I set them upright they flipped back over again.

evening all - this is a shocker of a grid - I've still got 161 to find and i have to go to bed soon so no finish for me
5:27 pm

how is "spam" not a wurd?
5:28 pm
stidmama

hello kazzer... I am SURE you're the right one that Jill meant -- are you in or near Chard?
5:28 pm
Kazzer99

its a brand name
5:28 pm
Kazzer99

yes i live in lovely chard
5:28 pm
stidmama

not anymore, not in relation to computers!
5:29 pm
stidmama

well, my mother was there last autumn, visiting our ancestral home which still stands from the 1500s or so. I bet she passed you in the street!
5:29 pm
Kazzer99

she might well have done - its not huge
5:30 pm
stidmama

that's just the funniest thing... it's such a small village, I never imagined a babbler would live thre!
5:30 pm

I'll have to see if I can find the pic she took. Do you have a moment? I can post it on flickr

Hello -- I think hubby and I drove through Chard in 1968
5:30 pm

excuse me Chard is a town - we've got 10,000 inhabitants
5:31 pm
Kazzer99

yes i will be about the h has decided to start watching tv
5:31 pm
stidmama

oh -- sorry, didn't know you make a size distinction! (we don't -- the two are mostly interchangeable, and officially a city starts at 5000 in the states)
5:31 pm
stidmama

okay, hold on a sec.
5:31 pm
Kazzer99

you proably did Jilli - the main A30 is chard high street
5:31 pm
stidmama

hey jill
5:32 pm
nrkii

city vs. town depends on type of government, I think
5:32 pm
Kazzer99

to be a city here you have to 1 either have a cathedral or 2 be made one by the queen
5:32 pm
Kazzer99

Brighton and Hove was the latest one I think
5:33 pm

I think we stopped at a pub there and got ticked off for parking where there was a yellow line we hadn't noticed
5:34 pm

and fireworks for me..phew that took a while.
5:34 pm
Kazzer99

that sounds about right - though parts of the high street are very very old. next time I am in there with a camera I will take some of the older bits and post em on flckr
5:35 pm

Before I lived here Chard was always somewhere you drove thru to get somewhere else

hey Une -- I learned some Portuguese last week. I thought FRENCH was peculiar. *shaking head sadly* now I have something for comparison, it's not so bad!
6:13 pm
nrkii

oh, okay... hmmm, not one of the more memorable of LMM's books for me
6:14 pm
hurshy

it became one of my faves later along in life. not that i'm terribly far along...
6:14 pm
Uneaixoise

you're ahead of me, stid -- no portuguese in my brain!
6:14 pm
nrkii

I learned a little Portuguese back in the 90's so I could flirt with a guy from Brazil in my work faxes
6:14 pm
Uneaixoise

nrkii LOL!
6:14 pm
hurshy

i also am shocked that SPAM is not in the dictionary - hey look spam does not get a red underline when you type it over here, so chat knows it is a word, but the grid doesn't
6:14 pm
nrkii

Oi! Tudo bem?
6:15 pm
stidmama

well, the biggest shock is that an H following a consonant sounds like a consonant Y... and the O is oo like school; so minho (name of a city) is min-yoo *sigh*
6:15 pm
stidmama

that's what I thought, too, hurshy - about the spam
6:16 pm
nrkii

it's a nasal language too, so it looks like spanish on paper, but doesn't sound like it!
6:16 pm
crosshair

problem is that spam is also a porper name as far as a food item goes
6:16 pm
stidmama

oh. and "thanks" is said differently if you are a woman (end in a) or a man (end in o); rather than changing it for the person to whom you are speaking...
6:16 pm
crosshair

type ine line in 2 hours and its a typo..sogh lol
6:16 pm

true, nrk. that was the other funny thing. but they were nice people, so I did my best.
6:16 pm
crosshair

...
6:16 pm
nrkii

but that shouldn't be the issue crossy... NANCY is allowed, and TONY
6:16 pm
hurshy

yes but being proper doesn't preclude it. "john" counts in the grid as a toilet, even though it is a name.
6:17 pm
stidmama

oh! and the R isn't the way I thought, either, it's more of a gargle sound in the throat
6:17 pm
crosshair

there are exceptions like alan
6:17 pm
hurshy

it has to NOT have a generic meaning to be left out.
6:17 pm
stidmama

*puts nrk in PB*

I particularly liked the an9 and 11 adjectival forms, normally prefaced by 'mis' or 'phil'.

Une - better than the disappointment of a 20 word one, which I think happened to me after a holiday/

Howdy...
10:12 pm

Thing is, I follow the grids and do them on paper whilst on holiday... we can get the grid up on Other Half's 'phone. However, typing the words in would be time-consuming and expensive.

I am styill mad that "onos" is in the dictionary but is not one of the words on this list. It shoud count, as well as pissy.
10:18 pm
Jacula

Don't say 'smash them with Bibles'; it reminds me of my old head teacher at grammar (high) school. She was also our RE teacher and when a wasp came into the classroom during her Religious Education lesson she told a girl to swat it. The girl grabbed the nearest book to hand only to have the teacher yell, 'NO! NOT WITH THAT!' She opened the desk, extracted a world atlas and smacked it with that instead.
10:19 pm
Jacula

I still LOL about that 40 years on.
10:19 pm
jaianniah

Great story!
10:20 pm
Jacula

Our Head Teacher wasn't a Buddhist. LOL

I loved the TV ad for anti-viral tissues that had a Buddhist monk blowing his nose on one and then realising he'd killed a million viruses.

10:31 pm
jaianniah

Earlier, it was mentioned that we babblers talk about food a lot...
10:31 pm
Jacula

dcs - I'd do the bread, tomato and salt but not the pepper. Since a tomato is a fruit, a pinch of sugar brings the flavour out. A good tip for anyone making pasta sauce.
10:31 pm

I said we are a cyber eatery...

BR - if I was the convicted one, what I'd do next is cut loose, go away, take a new name for public consumption and make a new life. I'd have to inform the appropriate authorities of my real whereabouts if I didn't want to end up in prison. I hate to say this, but this is what I predict will happen next in my stepdaughter's mother's life. Will she still think he was worth giving her faughter up for then?

Being a mother never ends, does it? It's a job for life you can't bail out of, even when the going gets rough. Which is a lesson my Step's Mum should learn. If I'd bailed out on my own daughter she'd be dead now.
