rururocks

thanks for the encouragement Just..lol
1:34 am
PAV3

the news from today is nyet...evidently my boss's advice upon leaving is that the new executive director needs an HR -focused administrative director and not a financial-focused director, presumably because I will be sticking around to be the finance guru...I was also told my exiting boss did not recommend me for anything else...the budget presentation went well, and I was given "brownie points" for making a workable and beneficial suggestion on another issue...
1:35 am
Just1Mar

your funereal ru.lol
1:36 am

sigh pav...the shenanigans of corporate bullshit

1:37 am
PAV3

oh? what did I miss?
1:37 am
J. C.

Oh no - what's wrong with Seain, Jilli? :(
1:37 am
jillibus

oops
1:37 am
Just1Mar

what's DC's bad news???
1:38 am
J. C.

I haven't seen him yesterday at all, or today so far?!
1:38 am
jillibus

he's unemployed
1:38 am
rururocks

oh no...
1:38 am
Just1Mar

<======...hates bad news :(
1:38 am
Just1Mar

ahhh crap....suddenly???
1:38 am
J. C.

Oh no!!! :(
1:39 am
jillibus

I gather -- he posted in FB
1:39 am
J. C.

That is sudden, yes - he had no idea it was coming. :(
1:39 am
PAV3

ugh!...this doesn't seem at all fair...
1:39 am
Just1Mar

FB...for babblers?
1:39 am
J. C.

A lot of things apparently, are far from fair. :?
1:39 am
Just1Mar

Sigh...life is not fair JC
1:40 am
J. C.

But sadly, that's life - and people, too.
1:40 am
dart001

normal FB just
1:40 am
Just1Mar

always the good ones who get fu**ed
1:40 am
J. C.

Speaking of which, did you get the e-mail, Jill?
1:40 am
J. C.

Seems to be the case, yes . . .
1:40 am
PAV3

you're correct J.C., but at some point the "good guys" must at least score, yes?
1:40 am
Just1Mar

oh ...don't know his real name so guess I can't access it
1:40 am
jillibus

just going to check now, JC
1:40 am
J. C.

I don't understand Seain losing his job. :/
1:41 am
rururocks

didn't he work for the US government?
1:41 am
J. C.

Well who knows, PAV . . . who indeed, knows?!
1:41 am
J. C.

OK, Jilli . . .
1:42 am
PAV3

DC was a federal worker ..it could have been political...or just wrong time in the wrong place...
1:42 am
Just1Mar

Pav...what happened to your flag?
1:44 am
PAV3

I shouldn't be too saddened by my news..the other shoe has yet to drop...they need an HR-focused administrator because the scuttlebutt says they're getting rid of my counterpart in HR and she doesn't know it yet...
1:44 am
J. C.

I don't know, PAV - but I feel terrible for him! :( It's the last thing he needs, and I hope he'll be able to find something else, quickly!
1:44 am
PAV3

Just...I was vacationing the world from my home whilst escaping the intense AZ heat...
1:44 am
Just1Mar

ain't corporate life grand? eh?
1:45 am
Just1Mar

oh Pav and yesterday had to put the heat on in my basement where computer is...either that or eternal goosebumps :(
1:45 am
PAV3

I feel bad for anyone losing their livelihood when they aren't the problem...
1:46 am
Just1Mar

Such a cutthroat world today... :(
1:46 am
J. C.

That's normal for our summers, Just . . . although, we have had a couple 'heat-waves' during this one.
1:46 am
PAV3

yesterday it was about 113 outside , and today the same, and tomorrow perhaps...
1:46 am
rururocks

glad I am self-employed
1:46 am
J. C.

That it certainly is, Just . . .
1:47 am
rururocks

104 here pav
1:47 am
J. C.

Yes, ruru - a definite advantage.
1:47 am
Just1Mar

hubby is self employed too, but that can pose its own problems too....
1:47 am
rururocks

yeah.. like working too many hours
1:48 am
PAV3

but only if you have a skill that people can use...
1:48 am
Just1Mar

exactly....plus hoping sales keep coming through
1:49 am
Just1Mar

hubby works a min 60 hour week...
1:49 am
J. C.

I know that feeling, ruru . . .
1:50 am
PAV3

I don't know about self-employment for myself...there are days I don't want to see me...and then misery does love company...
1:50 am
Just1Mar

no perks...no ins...no nothing
1:50 am
rururocks

I work 60-70 most weeks
1:50 am
jillibus

1:50 am
PAV3

and I'm only working roughly 50 hrs /wk
1:50 am
Just1Mar

thank god for "the dreaded socialized" medicine and in QUE...the drug insurance program
1:51 am
J. C.

Thank you, Jilli - just got your reply. :)
1:52 am
Just1Mar

gov't pays 2/3's of any prescription drugs you need if you don't have private ins
1:52 am
PAV3

sounds reasonable Just...is the personal tax rate much higher?
1:53 am
jillibus

See -- the insurance companies here have found plenty of things to insure which are not covered by our single-payer system
1:53 am
rururocks

NBT in 10 minutes.. not bad
1:53 am
jillibus

toldjaso, ru!
1:53 am
PAV3

ruru...I'm still at 2 BT's
1:53 am
Just1Mar

well yes we pay high taxes but we do not have to pay any medical for doctors, hospitals, whatever...only dentistry is payable
1:54 am
rururocks

what does the 9 begin with?
1:55 am
PAV3


then viola! I shall emigrate to Canada...how are the winters? colder than Michigan? may I deduct my poopies as dependents?

1:56 am
Just1Mar

the winters in Mtl are about the same as Mich...but where Jilli lives in BC it is milder
1:56 am
rururocks

thanks got it
1:56 am
PAV3

I've not been to NC...BC is north of Washington state, yes?
1:57 am
jillibus

1:58 am
Just1Mar

1:58 am
jillibus

2:01 am
Just1Mar

Health care is run by the provinces...not the Federal Gov't...BC and Alberta have much better health care in some ways than we do here..

TraderKate

we, the unwilling,
led by the unknowing,
are doing the impossible,
for the ungrateful.
we have been doing so much,
with so little for so long,
4:22 am

WITH NOTHING

must dive back into grid....have barely made aq dent in it so far
4:31 am
suefrad625

I hope I didnt offend you
4:32 am
TraderKate

not at all sue....knew another slightly diff. version...slightly messier too
4:32 am
suefrad625

lol
4:34 am
TraderKate

have been chatting for hours and not done a single word. have to go to lickety and can't see chat from ther...am in and out of babble page not gone. not ignoring. will be back in a bit
4:46 am
suefrad625

Trader, you still here?
4:47 am
TraderKate

i'm here sue
4:47 am
suefrad625

you dont have to go in and out of lickety, you can right click on the lickety link on the bottom and tell it to open to a different window. Then resize each window so you can see both of them at the same time.
4:49 am
TraderKate

i'll try. don't know crap about no computer stuff. thought that was something you could only do in babble expert. here goes nothing
4:51 am
suefrad625

after u open the new window, just go to the very top right hand corner of your window and if there is a double box, click it once so you can size the window to allow you to see both
4:52 am
TraderKate

well that waqs an abysmal failure...got window open...ontop of babble window, but have no idea how to resize...sigh
4:53 am
TraderKate

will try again now that i read your instructions...
4:53 am
suefrad625

not a failure, you learned how to open two windows
4:57 am
TraderKate

sometimes double box waqs ther, sometimes not...lots of clicking going on...clicked double box nothin happened
4:59 am
suefrad625

lol, if it is a double box that means it is maxed out, if it is single it is sizeable. when it is single, position your cursor on the side until your arrow becomes a double arrow, hold down the Left mouse button and drag it into the middle of the page. You can do the same for the top and bottom.
5:03 am

okay sue, but it doesn't compress it, from the right, th chat disappears?

5:07 am
suefrad625

min your windows by clicking on the Underscore in the top right corner, they will clear the screen by putting your windows on the task bar at the bottom. then when you are back on your desktop, you right click, left click on PROPERTIES, click on the SETTING icon, then slide the "screen resolution to a bigger number.
5:08 am
suefrad625

how are you putting your words into lickety?
5:10 am
TraderKate

manually, copy/ paste from babble list. then i hand write a bit of the list of words still missing with word before and after for ref. and the points. then back to babble to try again...
5:11 am

5:29 am
zoozzoom

5:29 am
TraderKate

it's not nice to upset zoomzoom's routine...bad, bad internet provider....you should sue for mental anguish
5:30 am
zoozzoom

Now thats an idea :0)
5:31 am
TraderKate

a truly tragic state of affairs zooz. it's still a bit eaqrly, but perhaps a small gin might be in order...to combat all that frustration?
5:32 am
zoozzoom

Well it is not too early 11:31am but i think a nice cup of tea will suffice.
5:32 am
TraderKate

was there much gnashing of teeth? beating of breasts? tearing out hair? you poor thing
5:34 am
zoozzoom

Not at 03:00am no..just came home from being with friends..and wanted to finish the grid..still all back to normal for now(fingers crossed) will complete this grid.
5:36 am
TraderKate

zooz - is your icon exercising its tongue? intriguing ... not sure whether it's compelling or repelling
5:37 am
TraderKate

best get to it then..before the gremlins return ( knock wood)
5:37 am
zoozzoom

lol, my son got me that icon :-)
5:38 am
TraderKate

8:23 am
Haz1558

When the newspapers can't think of another story, they raise the prospect of her wanting more children.
8:23 am

9:26 am

9:40 am
elder

Haz, I have had a few weeks of being poorly, first my back, then throat infection, followed by flu , then another throat infection. I have tried to pop in sometimes but could not sustain sitting here. Still a bit wobbly but making good progress.
9:40 am
72 Temple Owl

boric acid is not poison the strictest sense
9:40 am

I even have to kill ants while I babble because they are on my computer keys!

Haz, as with all body parts we don't realise how efficient they are until they let us down. I do periodically have injections but the relief does not last long term but lovely for a few months.

1:44 pm
jmcnrick

it is great to know when you want to leave a party or yell at your kid in public
1:44 pm
sprite

one of those things I would still like to learn some day
1:44 pm
jmcnrick

it is different in each country
1:45 pm
jmcnrick

British sign uses two hands for their alphabet for example
1:45 pm
sprite

that makes it even harder then!
1:45 pm
lynxxx

really, how odd
1:45 pm
jmcnrick

American Sign is closer to French sign because Galludet came from France to help the deaf
1:45 pm
Shivs Fitz

Interesting, I didn't know that.
1:45 pm
jmcnrick

when the people went first to England to get help the British said they would help for a price
1:45 pm
doxy1lover

I have the as8, what are the other 2?
1:46 pm
sprite

I wonder about dutch then... I believe I have seen both onehanded and twohanded.
1:46 pm
jmcnrick

the French said here is how ours works and let me send my son with you to help establish it
1:46 pm
Shivs Fitz

Pluralise that one for the as9, doxy1lover.
1:46 pm
jmcnrick

perhaps the french influence up through belgium eh?
1:47 pm
lynxxx

du8 and se8
1:47 pm
doxy1lover

I have the 9. I want to know the other 2 8-letter words
1:47 pm
afflamed

ok - I am looking in the A2Z wordfinder for a 5 letter TY word and of the 17 offered none work :((
1:47 pm
sprite

could very well be, oral dutch is a mixture of many languages too
1:47 pm
jmcnrick

that is the nicest story about the french i know! lol
1:48 pm
Shivs Fitz

Which one, afflamed? Is it the ty5,14?
1:48 pm
jmcnrick

I had a dutch friend when I was a child and she tried to teach me -- what? flemish? -- but I could never get teh guttural sound right
1:48 pm
doxy1lover

ty lynxx. will look
1:48 pm
lynxxx

ahh! ty!
1:49 pm

flemish is no dutch, it is one of the 2 main languages of belgium.
And yes, those guttural sounds are close to impossible for most foreigners :)
1:50 pm
sprite

I have a du8
1:50 pm
jmcnrick

oh well maybe she was teaching me dutch -- I was 8 and a little vague about it all
1:50 pm
Shivs Fitz

Same here.
1:51 pm
jmcnrick

when I heard the flemish in Brussels it sound Dutch to my untrained ear
1:51 pm
doxy1lover

got the 8's, ty sprite.
1:51 pm

dutch is a very tough language to learn!
And Flemish and Dutch are a lot like eachother, especially if you don't speak either
1:51 pm

I adore an irish accent
1:54 pm

I think I am trying to get sick, but with what I am unsure....maybe tired sickness if that exists.
1:54 pm
afflamed

and what an interesting job you have
1:54 pm
dan2bit

serious is a serious phantom - I must have tried it 4 or 5 times!
1:54 pm
jmcnrick

well perhaps you should try to get sick red -- just a thought
1:54 pm
sprite

that is special, jmc, most people don't. I like getting to know at least a few words from every country I visit.
1:54 pm

hi Dan

hi lynx and everybody
1:55 pm
jmcnrick

I make sure I have looked up please, thank you, bathroom, yes, no, and tea
1:55 pm
sprite

that exists, I believe, red. I also believe that if you feel that way, you should be sick and get yourself a lot better before you get really overtired and all.
1:55 pm
redturtlehead

hi dan, i'll be trying not to get sick but its this wierd thing...
1:55 pm
sprite

lollll jmc! Especially the tea!
1:55 pm

1:56 pm
redturtlehead

hi stid.
1:56 pm
redturtlehead

Sprite, how are you feeling...
1:57 pm
sprite

jmc, that is confusing. When I was in Greece, I learned that the sign we use for waving, is there a sign for 'come here'. And our sign for 'come here' is very rude there.
1:57 pm
jmcnrick

oo red since I had mono 20+ years I make sure I don't get too tired because I will get sick for sure
1:57 pm
lynxxx

hi Stid
1:57 pm
Shivs Fitz

Lucky me, afflamed? After being out of the house for so many years, it's an adjustment being here again! The Irish, well I am Irish except for being born and raised here...my entire background. So yes, of course I love my family who are over there and feel an attachment to the country in a way.
1:57 pm

it was very hard in the Chech Republic

1:58 pm

red: pretty desperate. So much would like to walk again and I don't seem able to. But I will, soon, I hope.

*HUGS* even, stiddie :)
1:58 pm

I am an irish/french mix, but i got all of my mothers appearances with the red hair light blue eyes and matching light skin lol
1:58 pm
stidmama

red, I got really really sick last week -- caught a nasty virus that hit at the same time as the migraine on the last day of the meeting. I think you should call in sick before it's for real.
1:58 pm
redturtlehead

Oh sprite, that is not good news. I surely hope things improve.
1:58 pm

1:59 pm

Well, stid, I have today and Sunday off, and I expect Monday to be an easy day...
1:59 pm

1:59 pm

goodness! *runs over to hug stiddie*

1:59 pm

aw stid, how awful! How are you now? Make sure you take time to rest up before storming on, ok?
1:59 pm

The family home thing sounds just cozy though. I imagine rural england, green pastures about, low lying fog, warm fireplace playing scrabble . :))

Hiya stidmama.
2:00 pm

I am all better now, jmc. turned in the last of the schoolwork yesterday and today have NO direction. feels weird.

that is what I hate about this silly sabbatical thing
2:00 pm
stidmama

how's the grid today anyway? better than yesterday? about the same?
2:00 pm
sprite

it is not a permanent thing. Just really overtaxed myself and now my muscles and brain don't work together. The brain fires off the right messages but they don't reach the muscles, or so they tell me.
2:00 pm
jmcnrick

no direction
2:00 pm
redturtlehead

stid, jmc, if you all have nothing to do, my house desperately needs a good clean.
2:00 pm
Shivs Fitz

LOL, no afflamed...don't live out in the countryside. We're in a suburb of Greenwich, beside a water tower, pub on the next corner.
2:00 pm

hi all! how're your weekends?
2:01 pm

hi all, does anyone have clue for sa6, the first?
2:04 pm
Shivs Fitz

You need a punching bag to take your frustrations out on, when you can't find words.
2:04 pm
sprite

jmc, absolutely. We should have both. And babblers who get sick, get to choose their own nurses.
2:04 pm

I'm good, very very tired, but good. You? How are you FM?

2:09 pm
lynxxx

Seems like sensible thinking Pav, who needs more headaches
2:09 pm
stidmama

wait wait. WHAT news about DC? I knew PAV was not having good job luck...
2:10 pm
redturtlehead

DC's cleared for A job was denied...
2:10 pm
stidmama

how can that be? not get clearance? this is very very unwelcome news
2:11 pm
sprite

that is odd. Does he know why?
2:11 pm
lynxxx

Not yet
2:11 pm
redturtlehead

I dont think even he knows why but they are reviewing it.
2:11 pm
FMitch

aparently there was a glitch stiddy and he was escorted off the premesis
2:12 pm
FMitch

gah my spelling is going out of the window as usual.
2:12 pm

sounds like some stupid mixup
2:12 pm

He was saying he got some great references though
2:12 pm

2:13 pm
stidmama

okay, I will go look at the log.
2:13 pm

huumph - aren't you glad he's gone then Pav!
2:14 pm
PAV3

never mind that for the past 6 1/2 years I've been saving his butt...
2:14 pm
sprite

can't believe he is right, PAV.
2:14 pm
sprite

I bet he couldn't do your job, let alone his own
2:15 pm
PAV3

but he was the one who plucked me from unemployment when I needed it...
2:16 pm
PAV3

Oh he admits I'm very good at governmental accounting, budgeting and purchasing, but not at a higher level..Deputy or Division Director...
2:16 pm
sprite

that was a good thing, but it doesn't excuse his negativity
2:16 pm
FMitch

am so glad that I work for myself. did the Corporate work for 25+ years
2:17 pm
Shivs Fitz

Me too, FMitch. Although I do some work part time for another company.
2:17 pm

I figure I have a good 20 years left...with elections coming up next year, he may lose his latest posit in t he next 18 months or so...
2:17 pm
FMitch

It is tough though isn't it Shivs?
2:18 pm
Shivs Fitz

Sure is, FMitch.
2:19 pm

Eeew pav, thats unfortunate. I feel again blessed to be in the in demand profession, as much as it may be quite unpleasant at times.

2:20 pm
PAV3

I've been told high ranking members in our state legislature and governor;s office are not happy with our independently elected commissioners for not choosing my boss as the new Exec Director, forcing him out....could bode poorly for my agency in budget talks...
2:20 pm

You know, it is exactly 2 years since zi retired from my last job and I still fell sick about it when I hear you guys talk
2:20 pm
FMitch

mmmm esp these days, given the economic climate.
2:20 pm

Oh no. there are moments though when I do wonder what its like to go through a day without being peed on, cursed at, vomited on, coughed on, etc....

Was on the TV this afternoon and so evocative of the fight in the clasfroom that is still going on today and the unfairness of life in general but how formative a teacher can be.

I've always felt teachers are the most noble of professions, instructing, guiding, helping , and mentoring, whilst painfully correcting the misguided youths
2:41 pm
FMitch

we just need Haz and a few others
2:41 pm
jmcnrick

and generally overworked and underpaid
2:41 pm

2:44 pm
flosey

jmcnrick

2:46 pm

flosey

2:46 pm

I keep trying it in all puzzles but so far no one seems to agree with me
2:46 pm
BabbleRabble


Those schoolgirl days of telling tales and biting nails are gone
But in my mind I know they will still live on and on
But how do you thank someone who has taken you from crayons to perfume?
It isn't easy, but I'll try
2:46 pm
FMitch

OK
Name the most infulential teacher in your life just for their posterity - I have two: Mrs Wadmore (hated her but she taught me Math. and Mrs Cursue the Choir Mistress who taught me how to sing and the apprecation of music which I have loved eversince.

2:48 pm
Aloyisius

Miss Berg, 9th grade, who would accept nothing less than what she perceived to be your best effort
2:48 pm
jmcnrick

I always said she was a better teacher than a mother and that I was the only person on earth qualified to judge
2:48 pm
flosey

and the least liked - one I had for grade 2,3,4,5 - I think we just got tired of each other
2:48 pm
BabbleRabble

The time has come for closing books and long last looks must end
And as I leave I know that I am leaving my best friend
A friend who taught me right from wrong and weak from strong
That's a lot to learn, but what can I give you in return?
2:48 pm
FMitch

in a good or bad way flosey?
2:49 pm
Atalante

Mrs Cummings used to give me special lessons each week where I decided what to study. We covered volcanoes and mountains and goodness knows what else. She brought me back stuff from all over the world, and showed me how big and wonderful the world was. She brought me a vial of ash from the Mt St Helens eruption, and a wooden beaver fromCanada, among others
2:49 pm
Aloyisius

ah, BR.. I hear it clearly now
2:49 pm

2:49 pm
PAV3

My first grade teacher Miss Spotts (she never married) who retired after my grade...and my 11 th grade pre-calc teacher who was once a janitor in the very same HS until he decided to become a teacher..he taught us that instead of making everyone around us miserable because we hate our jobs, we should quit to follow our dreams
2:49 pm
flosey

hi Soodle
2:50 pm
flosey

what a great example he was Pav
2:51 pm
Soodlebum

Hi everybody. I was scarred for live by a sadistic, money-grabbing nun, by the name of Sister Euphrasia. The name strikes terror into my heart to this day!
2:51 pm
jmcnrick

Mrs. Regan made so much fun of me when I first tried to recite a poem that the kids teased me forever feeling they had her permission. It got so bad that I had to do my recitations during recess so the other kids couldn't harass me thanks to her-- left me with an undying dislike for poetry
2:51 pm
Atalante

am I invisible? *demands in a babbler sort of way* I've been writing stuff and no-one mentioned it. I must be booooring :D
2:51 pm

2:53 pm
flosey

I remember being in school with a bad cold (back then we didn't stay home with such) and was blowing my nose and the teacher suggested I should get a steamshovel!
2:53 pm
Atalante

oh she was wonderful. she just knew I was brilliant (lol) and wanted to help me learn as I wanted to. So she took 2 hours a week out of her schedule to show me the joy of learning, and that was the greatest gift ever
2:54 pm
lynxxx

rofl Flosey. though I am sure it was humiliating at the time
2:54 pm
PAV3

Ata...you could not be more visible! did that come out wrong?...your lifelong teacher just struck a chord with my remembrance of my 11th grade tech..and not making everyone miserable at work...plus, I can't type and read the chat at hte same time,,,either my eyes are on the keyboard or on the screen...
2:54 pm
jmcnrick

2:55 pm
jmcnrick

Happy to say I went to public school
2:56 pm
Soodlebum

We had loads of nuns, but Sr Euphrasia was the Big Boss! The one and only good thing about her was her name - as JMC says - loads of different variations of the name!!
2:57 pm
PAV3

as a typical male, I think and speak faster than I type, so sometimes I must slow myself down...and then there's the arthur and itis creeping in
2:57 pm
Atalante

Sr Marie Helena was this old old old nun who was in charge of the library. I swear I never saw her move for 3 years

but Fm, he is soooo against sentimentality. and his emails said do not respond to this in ANY FORM.
4:07 pm

you cud even make it humurous by adding to each sentence what you arent saying " if i were to react, id tell you...."
4:07 pm

4:09 pm

what he really wants is a humorous email in response to other things and ignoring this white elephant. i can be sure to remind him i love him tho, and that is all i think. hi nrk thanks
4:09 pm
nrkii

But Dorens, I would suggest you honor his request and NOT respond. At least not for 2+ weeks, when you can send something funny.
4:10 pm
FMitch

Dorens if he is dying you just dowhat you want. whether you send the emails or print them off for the family to know is up to you.
4:10 pm
Dorens

just hope he makes sure to let me know next time he's back in ny... i miss him a lot. he's one of themost brilliant men i know, and certainly the funniest, and erudite, increedibly wellread and a good cook. but seriously crazy
4:10 pm
Soodlebum

OH Dorens. What a difficult position to be in. He sounds like a hell of a guy.
4:11 pm
Dorens

he says all lis well, but i don't believe that. he's on chemo and radiation, so maybe it isn't so dire... they wouldn't bother with treatment if they didn't think he had a chance. but he's had other health issues the last ten years... really high blood pressure, etc
4:12 pm

Fireworks! (sorry it happened in the middle of this conversation though.)
4:13 pm

congrats, car
4:13 pm
Dorens

he served in vietnam, one of those unsung heroes who carried a dying buddy ten miles over his shoulder and is tortured with bad memories of that time, gets very morose (understandably). his mom committed suicide when he was a baby which i think had longlasting effects
4:13 pm
nrkii

he may believe he will recover, in which case getting a lot of sentimental responses that suggest "last chance to tell you how much you meant to me" might be exactly the opposite of what he needs right now... that's why I wouldn't respond
4:13 pm

BabbleRabble

To have a friend is a blessing. He has put conditions on the friendship which you feel bound to honor. Good friends do that. To truly care about someone if not sentimentality: ▸ noun: extravagant or affected feeling or emotion
▸ noun: falsely emotional in a maudlin way
4:26 pm
BabbleRabble

It is very clear your emotions are not manufactured.
4:27 pm

Dorens

no, he is one of the best and strongest people i know. it is always so sad to see his weakness. and weakness can be a strength, but when it leads to sorrow it is sad
4:30 pm
BabbleRabble

Ultimately, you know he cares too.
4:31 pm
Dorens

oh i do, fortunately, I do. he even signed this email Love (I mean it) Rudy --- pretty outrageous for him.
4:32 pm
BabbleRabble

Wow, I am happy for you.
4:33 pm
Dorens

don't get me wrong.. we haven't been romantically involved since 1998... last i heard he had a wonderful girlfriend from finland, but he hasn't mentioned her in a while and when i asked recently was she still in the picture, he characteristically didn't respond. which means absolutely nothing. i do hope she's there
4:36 pm
Dorens

oh my goodness. i just found his name in the grid. too weird

Oh, I thought it was Dr. God. That is what I was told when I first enquired about it,that Expert gets sent to pro babblers.I had it,but do no have it anymore. I never used it when I did have it.I don't mind jumping from screen to screen. Often have several different screens open at a time anyway.I like to mutlitask on the computer. Too bad I am not good at multitasking in real life.

That's terrible, Jilli - you should've taken a course and learnt it, without telling them! ;)
