Good morning Haz, how nice to see you :)

And you! Is the weather behaving itself?
3:07 am

It is so mild this morning I have the patio doors open.
3:07 am
Haz1558

It's so strange, isn't it? First frosts and now this!
3:08 am
Haz1558

Mind you, it's not as mild as that here, but the sun is shining.
3:08 am
FMitch

Had a handyman come round at 8.30 to quote me on a c ouple of jobs that need to be done like rebuilding my office desk and moving the sitting room around so was up with the lark this morning.
3:08 am
Haz1558

And were his quotes okay?
3:09 am
FMitch

The weather is just sxo out of kilter right now.
3:09 am
FMitch

£40 for 2 hours work sounds fine to me and saves me a great deal of effort.
3:10 am
Haz1558

That sounds pretty good. It's always nice to find reliable tradesmen, isn't it?
3:11 am
FMitch

yes indeed and the next trade coming in is the ariel man - I might have a working TV by the end of today! Strange not to have had one for a week.
3:11 am

I really missed the TV for the first couple of days but now I don't apart from the news. LOL re yr comment.

I know, it does tend to be a habit to turn it on even if there's nothing that you particularly want to see.
3:13 am
Haz1558

Will you get the shopping channels now? You don't want to miss last minute bargains for Christmas.
3:13 am

It's probably me rebelling against the shops putting out their Christmas stuff in August, I refuse to join in.
3:17 am
FMitch

LOL, I have bought the cards and had every intention of getting them done whilst at the hotel but time just ran away.
3:18 am
Haz1558

I suppose writing cards in the jacuzzi might have been tempting fate a tad.
3:18 am
Haz1558

Hello, lynxxx!
3:18 am
FMitch

Just listening to the pair of ring doves cooing to eachother in next doors garden.
3:19 am
FMitch

Well guess I had better get on and do some more sorting and organising, lovely to see you and speak anon.
3:19 am
Haz1558

Lynxxx, I feel as though I've been doing this same Christmas demo for years. All about table settings, flowers, napkins etc.
3:19 am
lynxxx

bye FM
3:19 am
Haz1558

See you later, FM.
3:19 am
FMitch

Oh and hello lynxxx sorry almost missed you there
3:20 am
FMitch

TTFN
3:20 am
Haz1558

I've done it in various Woman's Institutes and church groups, this next one is a fundraiser for the school hockey club, which, given my history in the game, is deeply ironic.
3:20 am
lynxxx

What was that movie about village with perfect housewives?
3:20 am
Haz1558

Calendar Girls?
3:21 am
Haz1558

Or are you thinking of the Stepford Wives?
3:21 am
lynxxx

I'm very impressed! and so must be everyone else of they keep asking you to do it
3:21 am
lynxxx

Stepford Wives, not that I ever saw it.
3:22 am
Haz1558

It seems to go down well, I keep thinking 'That's the last time' and then I get another phone call....
3:22 am
Haz1558

My whole thing is not that you have to go over the top, just simple ideas on how to dress the table, starters etc.
3:23 am
Haz1558

I had to laugh at a newspaper report for a recent WI meeting. They had a visitor from the local environmental health department who gave, apparently, a very informative talk on what and what not to put in the various recycling bins that the council provides.
3:23 am
Haz1558

Compared to that, I suppose the odd Christmas bauble must seem like light relief.
3:25 am
lynxxx

Certainly would - they should have saved the other talk for after Xmas when people want to recycle unwanted Xmas presents
3:26 am
Haz1558

I know - or else had a kind of swap shop.
3:27 am
Haz1558

Is there an equivalent organisation in Australia for the Woman's Insitute? A monthly meeting for women, lots of them do incredible handicrafts, they have demos, take part in competitions etc. It's a very good social network for lots of women.
3:28 am
lynxxx

Oh yes - a very very active Country Women's Association
3:29 am
lynxxx

Nothing similar on the main cities - that I am aware of anyway
3:29 am
Haz1558

That's good - I've never been a member but any time I've visited, I'm always impressed by the friendships and the levels of activity. You can be as involved as you want to be, some enter competitions all the time, others just turn up for the monthly meeting.
3:33 am
Haz1558

What about your Christmas preparations, lynxxx? Are you further along than either FM or me?
3:33 am
lynxxx

I was always very impressed by my mother who retired down 'the bush' and got into all the traditional womens crafts later in life. She organised a large and active quilters group on the island where she lived and appeared to involve nearly every woman on the island as far as I could see
3:34 am
Haz1558

I'd have been the one in the kitchen making the tea while the others quilted.
3:34 am
lynxxx

Christmas?! its at least 3 weeks away isn't it. I've worked out who we are having for a small lunch, that's about it
3:35 am
Haz1558

Yes, three weeks - there's ages.
3:35 am
Haz1558

3 weeks and a day. LIke I said, ages.
3:37 am
Haz1558

I always laugh at the magazines which interview various women on their countdown to Christmas. Uppermost on their mind is what they're going to wear on Christmas Day while they waft around looking gorgeous. That's the least of my thoughts, I can tell you.
3:39 am
lynxxx

Do you do the tradional Xmas dinner? I still like it but my husband always pushes for seafood which given our weather is probably sensible
3:40 am
Haz1558

We always have turkey etc but I usually have a light starter and not Christmas pudding, since nobody here is that keen on it.
3:41 am
lynxxx

I love the Xmas pudding! I think everyone just likes the sixpences - even if they can't keep them
3:41 am
Haz1558

And not a brussel sprout in sight, again not many of us are fond of them so the mountains of them in the supermarket are quietly ignored.
3:42 am
lynxxx

don't forget the nutmeg with the brussel sprouts
3:43 am
Haz1558

I think brussel sprouts get a bad press over here because lots of women used to kill them with boiling rather than leaving them with a bit of bite.
3:44 am
lynxxx

I made a recipe for turkey stuffing last year which was truly delicious - sage, walnut and dried fig
3:45 am
Haz1558

It sounds good! I do mine with lemon and orange zest and grated apple to keep it moist. There are probably infinite variations.
3:46 am
Haz1558

Maybe I could do a talk on stuffings.....

3:48 am
Haz1558

I've got it up now. I'd have to adapt it for a walnut hating husband.
3:49 am
Haz1558

The figs and cranberries sound good - very complimentary to the turkey.
3:49 am
lynxxx

lol - I forgot. Did you ever make that apple cake with the baking soda. I gave a recipe to a cake making friend and she os not allowed to stop making it - everyone loves it!
3:50 am
Atalante

*flop*
3:50 am
Haz1558

No, I never did, although I do have the recipe copied down. Thanks for reminding me, I must try it.
3:50 am
lynxxx

That soap powder is in the grid again
3:51 am
lynxxx

hi Ata! how are you feeling
3:51 am
Haz1558

However, I've realised the time - must go as RDA is on this morning and I'm going to be late unless I get a move on.
3:51 am
Haz1558

Ata, you'll get a complex, every time you appear, I head off. It's not deliberate, honestly!
3:51 am

4:19 am
Atalante

how annoying!
4:19 am
hurshy

i took another pill so hopefully that will help.
4:20 am

you need a trio of purring kitties to lull you
4:20 am

but this is their stalking about time :(
4:21 am

that's cats for you!

4:25 am

*been pondering* the ne6 is my joint fav polychaete actually, along with _Arenicola_
4:26 am
hurshy

you're so smug.
4:27 am
Atalante

*smug*
4:29 am
Atalante

how#'s husband? has he got his test results backyet?
4:29 am
hurshy

he doesn't even get to go see the kidney specialist til the 21st
4:30 am
Atalante

urf, I thought he was getting something earlier than that. what a lovely christmas present for him
4:30 am
hurshy

he just had the CT in which they said it was not a cyst, nothing since.
4:31 am
hurshy

it likely means another surgery but he should be fine in the end at any rate.
4:33 am
Atalante

yay :)
4:33 am
hurshy

did they find a way to do the thing for your sister that they couldn't do before cause her veins were too flat?
4:34 am
Atalante

nooooo *facepalm*
4:35 am
hurshy

so what's her overall status at this point?
4:35 am
Atalante

deteriorating! her blood counts keep dropping, in a week or so she's going to have to be readmitted as an emergency
4:36 am
hurshy

:(
4:36 am
hurshy

and what will they do for her then?
4:36 am
Atalante

I wrote a VERY snotty letter to her surgeon yesterday, so we'll see if that helps
4:37 am
hurshy

oh yes, snotty letters always help
4:37 am
Atalante

what they should have done all along, get her on the op table and find a way to transfuse her. But now they'll be bound to do it cos it'll be an emergency whereas it was just urgent before
4:37 am
Atalante

writing letters to drs is where I rejoice at being able to sign myself Dr Becky
4:38 am
hurshy

but what if they still CAN'T? or do you think they really were just that bad the first time?
4:39 am
Atalante

they *will* be able to do it, somehow. the problem is that the ways they *could* get a line into her are quite likely to kill her on the op table
4:39 am
Atalante

so obviously they don't want to do that
4:39 am
Atalante

but soon, they'll be forced into it
4:39 am
hurshy

obviously!
4:40 am
hurshy

so how is she handling it and how are you handling it?
4:40 am
Atalante

she's unamused in the extreme!
4:40 am
hurshy

how very british of her.
4:41 am
Atalante

what else can she do?!
4:42 am
hurshy

nothing, i guess, i just wondered if she's scared, depressed, resigned...
4:43 am
Atalante

all of those ...
4:43 am
Atalante

she's very stoic
4:43 am
hurshy

*sympathy*
4:44 am
Atalante

meant to be seeing her at the weekend
4:44 am
hurshy

well i hope you will be at least a temporary cheering influence
4:45 am
Atalante

not really sure I should go up. if my body can't cope with an hour and a half's dog walk, how will it fare with 6 hours driving and looking after a demanding patient!
4:46 am
hurshy

mmm... good point. i didn't realize it was so far.
4:46 am
Atalante

well, 3 hours each way :)
4:46 am
hurshy

ah, right.
4:47 am
Atalante

more like 4 with a stop halfway
4:47 am
hurshy

maybe you can go next weekend.
4:48 am
Atalante

next weekend I'm being a geek all weekend and cataloguing seaweed :P
4:48 am
hurshy

just like in sanditon
4:49 am
Atalante

could go the weekend after
4:49 am
hurshy

well, what about christmas?
4:51 am
Atalante

I think this weekend will be fine, as long as I take it easy
4:51 am
Atalante

and if I just chill out today
4:52 am
hurshy

perhaps
4:53 am
Atalante

I'll just wait and see tomorrow :)
4:53 am
hurshy

sounds like a plan
4:54 am
Atalante

if in doubt, procrastinate
4:54 am
hurshy

indeed
4:57 am

Any clues for the O above the Z ? It's oi6/18, and it's haunting me ...
4:57 am

Got it ... looking in the wrong direction. As soon as you ask for a clue, the bloomin' thing pops up.
4:58 am
hurshy

yes, that's called pulling a peri.
4:59 am

Does it happen to her?

I've been listening to the radio this morning and the fog has contributed to a number of accidents this morning (or at least the drivers are blaming the weather for their driving shortcomings)
9:32 am
sciencegeek

pink - i hate that no one is ever responsible for their own actions
9:32 am
Pinikula

You'd think fog was a new weather condition...
9:32 am
Pinikula

...but if the temp is below 35F and visibility is reduced...you
9:32 am

right sg and pini, you'd think they could slow down just a bit - perhaps arrive no more than 5 minutes later!
9:32 am
Pinikula

you'd think people would adjust
9:33 am
flosey

I use to think that when drivers just had to pass each other on the highway down into Toronto - don't believe they gained more than 5 minutes if that
9:35 am
Pinikula

it's rather frustrating, especially for those of us who tend to be better drivers and adjust as needed...getting there in one piece is incentive enough for me!

i love potato bread/rolls because if you like soft squishy bread, you don't want to eat the non-nutritious white bread, and potato bread actually has a lot of nutrition - as much or more in some ways than whole wheat!
10:46 am

potatoes in general are really surprisingly packed with nutritious stuff.
10:49 am

And their whole wheat potato rolls would be the best of both worlds.

i always keep a copy of the installation software when I get software, so if it hiccups or whatever, I can re-install it without too much fuss

Major Avast bug. A tech sent me a link about a bulletin board where they're talking about it

i prefer to think of the net as a really big telephone. phones have never been without faults and bugs
2:00 pm

good point, gwen ;)

2:04 pm

2:06 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

so, who here is using wifi? i'm not and i keep hearing how hard it is to get a connectin using wifi. might have to switch to sifi though
2:06 pm
Pinikula

I use wifi occasionally...
2:07 pm
Pinikula

...it depends on where I am and if I want to get "online."
2:08 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

assuming you're at home and you want to be online all day. is it as reliable as a hard line?
2:09 pm
Pinikula

It depends on if you're piggy backing off an unsecure line (like a neighbor) or if you've established your own secured network.
2:09 pm
brandyjack

Assumi9ng you are talking about your own wifi router and not some municpal wiMax scheme, it works very good.
2:09 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

okay, so assume i'm paying an ISP and all that. then it's pretty reliable?
2:09 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

ah, ty brandy
2:10 pm
Pinikula

yes, gwen...you just need to set up your own wifi (i.e., with the router that BJ suggested)
2:10 pm
brandyjack

The only exception is in older houses with plaster and lathe walls. Some plasterers use a wire mesh as the top layer and it kills wifi and 2.8Ghz wireless phones
2:10 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

i need to shop for a new ISP. my current ISP is evil incorporated. in fact they slammed my ISP !!
2:10 pm
Pinikula

really, BJ? Didn't know that...
2:11 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

brandy, i should be okay there, not in an old house
2:11 pm

2:12 pm
Gail

We watched Dr. Who last weekend for hours.
2:12 pm
brandyjack

I found out the hard way, my house was built in 58 and the main loadbearing wall upstairs is done that way. On the other hand it works out well because it kills the wifi signal about 5 feet from the house. Daughter can go outside and eat a weed and still stay online.
2:12 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

1958? oh, hell, i thought when you said old you menat *old* lol
2:13 pm

But someone sitting at the road gets nothing. I should really secure the connection, but too lazy.
2:13 pm

Doctor Who is the greatest tv show every made. don't try to argue me out of that. (smug smile) LOL
2:14 pm

1960 up here is when they switched to rocklathe/gyproc construction.
2:14 pm

We discovered our next door neighbors were using our network for quite a while. And yes, Dr. Who rocks.
2:15 pm

Can hardly wait till March for the new season...... Although Waters of Mars did setup good tfor the Xmas special which in turn is supposed to setup for Matt Smith's entrance.....
2:15 pm

Anyone who sees the new doctor before I do, do not tell me one word! thanks in advance 8-)
2:16 pm

We watched the most recent special that aired on BBC two weeks ago.
2:16 pm
Pinikula

no worries here...don't watch it
2:16 pm
brandyjack

I monitor my connection as I do have lowlifes liiving next door. But I think they may be too stoopid for a computer. Or too drunk...
2:16 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

ACK!! (please tell me nothing. not kidding.)
2:16 pm
Gail

I keep an eye on the Dr. Who BBC website all the time. There are some great games to play there, too.
2:17 pm
Gail

I would tell nothing. I can't remember that long ago anyway :)
2:17 pm

They block us Canadians.... At least from all the clips and such.... So i get around it by checking the newsgroups.
2:17 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

(sigh of relief) lol
2:19 pm
Pinikula

BJ...can you find it on hulu.com or fancast.com?
2:19 pm
brandyjack

You're watching it as broadcast here in North America? 1 Year behind?
2:20 pm
Pinikula

really? I thought those two sites were only a few weeks behind actual air time.
2:21 pm
brandyjack

Never looked at hulu or fancast. I have a subscription to a usenet-news server. It was the precursor to the peer-to-peer networks, excpet no one is looking over your shoulder....
2:21 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

brandy, is that a question for me?
2:21 pm
Pinikula

ahhhhh...
2:21 pm
brandyjack

It broadcasts in UK, and 6-7 hours later it's available for me to watch....
2:21 pm
Pinikula

oh, even better, BJ....then you're already on it...
2:23 pm
brandyjack

Yes Gwen, it was. Just rying to figure out if you've seen the 4rd (and last) season with David Tenant. Matt Smith takes over in Year 5. Which I hope isn't a spoiler for you since it's been quite widely spread.

2:24 pm

brandy, it would have been a spoiler, but it's not. if you really want to know, i can't afford cable, so i watch tv at a friend's house, and where and when he gets the show i have no idea

2:25 pm

also, i very much enjoy how much the show can be surprising, so i avoid learning about future episodes, or cast, or stories, or any of that. otherwise the show is not so much fun

I know. I meant maybe tomorrow is another day!
2:32 pm
Pinikula

...have you been using Lickety's Babble Clues (at the bottome of the grid)?
2:33 pm
brandyjack

the only ones who are fast at this usually are involved with the language as a job. the rest of us are just here to learn new words......
2:33 pm
Pinikula

very good summary, BJ!
2:33 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

jayk, the secret is to be born with a brain that can read upside down and backward, and see words inside random letter strings, and can remember obscure words and how to spell them 8-)
2:34 pm

Yes. Big help--but no substitute for an actual brain. Words ARE my language, sadly, brandyjack. I write. But apparently not today.

6:23 pm
jmcnrick

don't go in if you feel bad pini --ata keeps makng that mistake
6:23 pm
jmcnrick

poor jill
6:24 pm
Pinikula

yep...still playing it by ear...
6:24 pm
Pinikula

...and Koda's getting into the garbage can...brb
6:24 pm
Dorens

poor jili and poor pini. hope you feel better soon
6:24 pm
Bugsaw

sometime kids just wnat to skip class so they go to the counsellor but others are in terrible situations and there is so little anyone can realy do.
6:24 pm
jillibus

this too shall pass
6:24 pm
Bugsaw

did you get your flu shots jilli?
6:24 pm
Dorens

wish we could have parents pass licensing exam before they have kids
6:25 pm
jillibus

got the seasonal shot, bugs, not the H1N1 yet.
6:25 pm
Bugsaw

ME TOO Dorens
6:25 pm
jmcnrick

my school life was a living hell but i ne5 went to the counselor because they all knew my mother
6:25 pm
Bugsaw

I am sure you are safe then jilli.
6:26 pm
Dorens

i don't tell parents everything... some i don't tell anything
6:26 pm
Bugsaw

I was in the same boat jmc because my mother was the problem but everyone knew how wonderful my Dad was. He just wasn't home a lot
6:26 pm
jillibus

and this is hardly the time to get the H1N1, when I'm feeling crappy, right?
6:26 pm
jmcnrick

mother taught at the jr until the year before i started there and at the hs the whole time i was there
6:27 pm
jmcnrick

my mother wasn't the problem
6:27 pm
jmcnrick

in fact i had her as an english teacher for 2 1/2 years
6:27 pm
jillibus

I really should go and do those Xmas cards . . .
6:27 pm
jmcnrick

:-(
6:27 pm
Bugsaw

Yes they wont let you get it if you are already sick. It is not nearly as serious as most people think, unless you have serious health issues to begin with
6:28 pm
jmcnrick

I need to take a break for jeopardy
6:28 pm
jmcnrick

bbl
6:28 pm
Pinikula

do mine while you're at it, jilli! :)
6:28 pm
jillibus

well, there's less need for us ancients to get it anyway. I had all kinds of flu as a kid in China.
6:29 pm
jillibus

Ha ha, pini!
6:29 pm
Dorens

my mom was school nurse at a different school in my district. The one time as a senior I cut school and went to the shore with my friends, my school nurse, of course, called my mom and asked what ws wrong
6:29 pm
Pinikula

can't blame me for asking!
6:29 pm
Dorens

jili, it seems they are recommending it for younger folks, not us over 50 folks
6:29 pm
jillibus

exactement, dorens
6:29 pm
Bugsaw

that is exactly what they told me when i had my shots. Apparently there was a flu in 1958 that is quite similar and protects us to a better extent
6:30 pm
Dorens

so there are some advantages to being aged!
6:30 pm
jillibus

I had the seasonal flu shot about a month ago. My rather odd bridge partner says that's why I feel bad now. She refuses to get any shots.
6:31 pm
bichon

But I was 12 in 1958, why wouldn't I have had protection. I got mine today because I have two underlying health coditions
6:31 pm
Dorens

i don't think that's why you feel bad jilli... there are so many germs... so many things to make you feel bad.
6:31 pm
jillibus

good thing, bichon!
6:31 pm
Pinikula

I was a -2 in 1958 (heck, my parents weren't even married...)
6:32 pm
Dorens

i was 8 in 58 and i have COPD and work in a school where kids are coming down with flus all the time, but my dr. said all i need was my seasonal, which I got a month ago
6:32 pm
Pinikula

I haven't had any shots this season and yesterday was my "hit by a bus" day...
6:32 pm
Bugsaw

aper
6:32 pm
Bugsaw

SORRY
6:32 pm
Bugsaw

aper
6:32 pm
Dorens

hit by a bus?
6:32 pm
jillibus

dorens, I'm quite sure it has NOTHNG to do with the flu shot I had! That woman has all sorts of weird ideas about diet and medicine.
6:32 pm
Bugsaw

the button doesn't work
6:33 pm
jillibus

nm, bugs!
6:33 pm
Pinikula

yeah...feeling sick, dorens
6:34 pm
Dorens

i made a turkey chili with chipotle peppers in adobo and it is so good... i just ate a whole bowl full, and i know i don't really need any more, but i just want the taste in my mouth. someone give me some willpower, I am trying to lose a couple of pounds
6:34 pm
Dorens

sorry pini, and i sure hope it isn't flu
6:35 pm
Pinikula

oh, I think it will be, dorens...
6:35 pm
Bugsaw

I even have the huge box open that you told me about but I keep going to the chog by habit... It will take soon jilli. Have faith
6:36 pm
lmj643

i keep trying to enter "mayhem" :)
6:37 pm
Dorens

6:40 pm
Pinikula

(passing on the cilantro)
6:40 pm
Dorens

well fuquay, you might beat the pants off me in lexulous, but at least i am eating well
6:40 pm
jillibus

I prefer parsley to cilantro
6:40 pm
Pinikula

BTW: did you know dislike for cilantro is something you're born with
6:40 pm
Dorens

i think it's one of those things you either love or hate
6:40 pm
jillibus

interesting, pini!
6:41 pm
Dorens

i know i thought it tasted like soap at first, but somehow acquired the taste (or so i thought! maybe i really always liked it but didn't reallize??)
6:41 pm
fuquayvarina

i'm not wild about cilantro either -- tastes soapy to me
6:41 pm
jillibus

FV beats the pants off dorens in Lex? Wow!
6:42 pm
fuquayvarina

she's exaggerating, jilli
6:42 pm
Pinikula

guess I should "pre-disposition"
6:42 pm
Dorens

oh please!! fuquay does it all the time!!
6:42 pm
Pinikula

I think it tastes like dirt
6:42 pm
jillibus

well, dorens beats the pants off me.
6:42 pm
Pinikula

dorens slaughters me!
6:42 pm
jillibus

pini, I'm with you. Just don't like it.
6:42 pm
Dorens

jili it seems to me to be largely luck
6:43 pm
jillibus

baloney, dorens -- you win consistently
6:43 pm
Dorens

see fuquay, I'm not totally pitiful... just against you (and sometimes ata)
6:43 pm
fuquayvarina

luck is most of it, but I don't know why my luck against nrkii is so often so terrible....
6:43 pm
Merk

... and Fireworks!
6:44 pm
fuquayvarina

ata beats me on a regular basis too
6:44 pm
Dorens

nrkii beats me too, but not always (at first she did, but i managed to win once or twice)
6:44 pm
jillibus

YAY merk!!!
6:44 pm
Pinikula

6:44 pm
jillibus

I hope you can stay to clue, merk -- I have those Xmas cards summoning me.
6:44 pm
Dorens

yay merk. what was the trick? this is killing me and i still have 93 left!
6:44 pm
Merk

ty, it only took me a whole day of coming and going to finally stick with it long enough to finish.
6:44 pm
Merk

see you tomorrow
6:45 pm
jillibus

I couldn't have finished without Lickety and morewords

6:47 pm
Minveryork

Hello wht! How are you doing? Welcome to the puzzle
6:47 pm
jillibus

dorens, I think going to Lickety when you have Expert is quite different from when you don't. No need to Bulk Add -- everyhting goes there automatically
6:48 pm
jillibus

6:48 pm
Dorens

how fantastic.
6:49 pm
jillibus

Yes!
6:49 pm

si6 ... more of how you pick clothes from a rack in a store .. not by color, not by style, but by what fits ..
7:11 pm
Bugsaw

I am not finding it as interesting as I used to welki. It has gone on long enough that they chose players to fit the formula but I am a student of human behaviour so I like to see how easily some people can be manipulated. I also like to watch the leaders and how they motivate people. Trouble is, now anyone who is a leader gets voted out first and only the creeps are left.
7:11 pm

8:50 pm
dcseain

just looked, no it doesn't. good catch on your part, zee :)
8:51 pm
Pinikula

Zee...the Tile Stats simply replicate the game board and identify the number of words that you must find (i.e., A 0/3 = find 3 words starting with A, etc.)...to form a word, letters must be in consecutive order and each tile may only be used once in a word
8:51 pm
Zeecon

ok, just wanted to make sure I wasn't slow and blind, just slow ;-)
8:52 pm
Scrabbler

Poor Primo! Scary event.
8:52 pm
Scrabbler

Zee, it will take a bit to get this game and the lingo. I was intimidated initially and 3 days later I understood it.
8:52 pm
Trifioso

thanks, you guys....I think you are completely right DC.
8:53 pm
dcseain

and now you can blame your white hairs on primo ;D
8:53 pm
