I'd have to use a calculator to work out what percentage I've got of anything. Okay, of the fours and fives at any rate.
4:15 am
Haz1558

I can't even do it with a calculator.
4:18 am

Hi Aussie
4:49 am
Haz1558

But FM, that's the complete opposite of how you do the grid.
4:50 am
Haz1558

One of these days, you should try doing the grid from a to z and the nightly round up from z to a.
4:50 am
FMitch

Good point Haz
4:50 am
Scrabbler

I awoke with pink eye--scratchy, goopy left eye. I was at a baptism + luncheon yesterday and some little dearie must have shared this with me

I once stayed with a family who were very keen that their children eat everything put in front of them. I thought it was a good idea (can't stand fussy, picky eaters) but got my comeuppance when we were presented with a plate of semolina for pudding. I ate it, but I deserved a medal for bravery.

they don't like giving her long-term lines, or really putting any surgical holes into her, because she can't heal. And then the wounds get infected etc etc. Her arm is still unhealed from problems she had with a PIC line ages ago now

yes, but I am trying to not be too scared, and welcome the change. it is weird though, having to say "oh, gee, I can't, I have to work...." I am gonna miss Primo's first swim meet this season - never missed one before! but he is fine with it

I have always wondered what gummis are made of--remind me of boogers
6:18 am

I doubt any dr would try and take her off paroxetine now. her body couldn't deal with it. but if they could only give her something else as well that would stop her having huge anxiety attacks every blooming day. I'm going to go with her and make sure the psych guy understands how stressed she is constantly!

6:20 am

if necessary, I'm going to just pay for her to come down and see someone here I trust absolutely for a few sessions and who will actually listen to her and look at all her drug treatments.

anxiety attacks are *awful*. I used to have them so badly that I'd actually black out. Which is how I *know* she can be helped if someone actually takes the time to do it
6:21 am

6:30 am
joshuavorbis

i'm sure most kiwis would rather do that than spend the night in sydney
6:30 am
Uneaixoise

many years ago, a friend flew from Sydney to Los Angeles -- and her baby threw up on her in the first hour of flight!
6:30 am
Atalante

so where are you in China? tell us what exciting things your'e going to see
6:30 am
Uneaixoise

ditto what ata said!
6:31 am

well, from here, josh, you stop at HK / KL and then fly on either to Aus or NZ. No stopping in Aus if you go to NZ
6:31 am
joshuavorbis

my plane from london to sydney stopped off in UAE for a few hours
6:31 am

ooohhh, this is work-related?
6:32 am

6:36 am
kanet77

hey tor.. good thing the great firewall of china didn't block babble, eh? ; ) too bad there's no fb/twitter/youtube/etc. *poof*
6:36 am
torgone

Not really .. They take some of the household waste headed for the landfill, and turn it into compost instead ..
6:36 am
Atalante

and you just had to go and see the processes for yourself?
6:38 am
torgone

The job of our equipment is to break up and remove the plastic bags, then get out the stuff that's not compost ..
6:38 am
Atalante

that's clever
6:39 am
torgone

Yeah .. They have not been able to obtain a budget for next year because the plant is not operating proprly yet, and I'm the lucky boy who got to come over here and make it all right ..
6:39 am

China does not block babble anymore, but it does block Lickety because it does not like the linked word lists, I think. Filters can't distinguish dictionaries from dangerous words in context.

Haz1558

Hello, Vicuna!
8:37 am
jmcnrick

hi vic
8:39 am
Vicuna

I grow weary of this grid, and I haven't even reached halfway. Not a good sign.
8:39 am
Haz1558

You'll not have heard FM's secret, Vicuna.
8:39 am
Vicuna

No I haven't. Tell!
8:39 am
jmcnrick

*leans in to hear*
8:39 am
Haz1558

You'll probably weep when you realise the implications.
8:40 am
Vicuna

*reaching for handkerchief*
8:40 am
Haz1558

When she can't get to sleep, she mentally names all babblers starting from a and working through.
8:40 am
Haz1558

She usually gets to about c or d.
8:40 am
Vicuna

lol - I hope she never makes it to Vicuna!
8:40 am
jmcnrick

lol poor vic!
8:40 am
harpjane

good morning, kind of a big one today, eh?
8:40 am
Haz1558

Which means that smug Ata is thought of often. You, on the other hand, never feature.
8:41 am
Haz1558

zooz was practically inconsolable this morning.
8:41 am
jmcnrick

compared to the ones we have gotten lately harp
8:41 am
Vicuna

After all, if the early-letter Babblers put her to speel, not doubt the thought of my fascinating personality would wake her right back up again. Heh.
8:41 am
Haz1558

Hello, harpjane.
8:41 am
Vicuna

*put her to sleep*
8:41 am
Haz1558

The irony is that she tackles the grid from z to a.
8:41 am
Vicuna

Hello, harpjane.
8:41 am
jmcnrick

FM should consider doing a reverse alphabet or ata will get a swelled head
8:41 am
Haz1558

Care to sign a petition to have her reverse her usual sleepy time routine?
8:42 am
Vicuna

Too late for that, jmc! ;D
8:42 am
jmcnrick

well there is that vic! lol
8:42 am
Vicuna

No, no, Haz. Those boring early-alphabet folks are just the ones she needs to send her straight to sleep.
8:43 am
jmcnrick

*giggle*
8:43 am
Haz1558

(Worrying now about how early in the alphabet you have to be to be considered boring)
8:44 am
Vicuna

(Well, of course my real name begins with A, so I'll argue that this rule is valid only for Babble names.)
8:44 am
jmcnrick

speaking of early in the alphabet -- I haven't seen BR in ages
8:44 am
jmcnrick

am I just missing him?
8:45 am
Vicuna

Oh, I caught a glimpse of him just yesterday, I think. Maybe the day before, but recently in any case.
8:45 am
Haz1558

He hasn't been around as much as usual, jmc.
8:45 am
Vicuna

But true, not as omnipresent as usual.
8:45 am
jmcnrick

I hope that means things are so wonderful he hasn't the time for us
8:45 am
Haz1558

He probably solved this in about 3 minutes 15 seconds and took himself off.
8:45 am
EvaNadine

mornin babblers!
8:45 am
Vicuna

Hello, EvaN!
8:45 am
Haz1558

Hello EvaN!
8:45 am
jmcnrick

hi eva
8:47 am
EvaNadine

how are we all today?
8:47 am
jmcnrick

i am well
8:47 am
Vicuna

We are scintillating, naturally.
8:47 am
jmcnrick

and you?
8:48 am
Haz1558

We are expressing reservations about the niceness of this grid. There have been complaints.
8:48 am
Vicuna

I give it thumbs down.
8:48 am
jmcnrick

the first 1/3 seems pretty nice -- does it sneak up on you?
8:49 am
EvaNadine

i am doing well. and i usually have reservations about the niceness of the grids...heh
8:49 am
jmcnrick

of course I have yet to obtain even nbt
8:49 am
Haz1558

I'd compare it to being stealthily mugged.
8:49 am
Vicuna

It has not been flowing for me, and I usually have flow until at least 2/3 through.
8:49 am
jmcnrick

I better go find my flack jacket
8:50 am
Merk

I made it through all of the a and c words and am about to tackle the s ... if they stand still long enough.
8:50 am
jmcnrick

hi merk
8:50 am
Vicuna

Hello, Merk. Man, I have a lot of a's and c's still to go!
8:50 am
Merk

Hi jmc ... I've been lurking with my nose to the grindstone. I have lots of laundry and housecleaning to get done today.
8:51 am
jmcnrick

alas I must toddle off to work soon myself
8:51 am
jmcnrick

I got 10 minutes before I must hit the dusty tr5
8:52 am
Vicuna

I suppose I should give myself about 10 more minutes, too.
8:53 am
jmcnrick

help with the j please?
8:53 am
Merk

I'm afraid if I don't finish while I'm hot, I won't get back here later.
8:53 am
Vicuna

ja5/22 - sounds like desert canine, and pl
8:53 am
Haz1558

ja5/22 - ja plus first letters of Arnie's state.
8:53 am
jmcnrick

*turns up the heat for merk*
8:53 am
Haz1558

And then plural.
8:53 am
Vicuna

ja5/22 - sound slike start of old car, and pl
8:54 am
Haz1558

ja5/22 - ja plus one circuit of a race track, and plural.
8:54 am
Merk

ty jmc
8:54 am
jmcnrick

ty ty you guys are so helpful!
8:55 am
Haz1558

Just wait till you see your clue bill at the end of the year.
8:55 am
Vicuna

lol, Haz. Do you charge by the clue, by the letter, or the minute?
8:55 am
EvaNadine

hints for the M or the W?
8:56 am
jmcnrick

lol good thing i have an inheritance coming from Mother to pay for it
8:56 am
jmcnrick

hope it is enough!
8:56 am
Haz1558

By the clue, extra charged if it has to be explained.
8:56 am
Vicuna

be-wa4 the darkness of the night!
8:56 am
hurshy

mi8 put in the wrong location and not be able to find
8:57 am
jmcnrick

so do i only have to pay for the clues I request?
8:57 am
Merk

Yup, it is.
8:57 am
jmcnrick

hi hursh
8:57 am
Haz1558

mi6/24 - forget all your lines and make a total hash on stage.
8:57 am
Vicuna

mi6 - perform the play wrong
8:57 am
Vicuna

mi7 - use the comb in the wrong palce in your hair
8:57 am
Vicuna

*place*
8:57 am
Haz1558

Yes, you only pay for the clues you request. You get discount if there are plurals involved.
8:57 am
Vicuna

Aaargh, pb for me!
8:58 am
jmcnrick

do i get credits for the clues i give?
8:58 am
Haz1558

Some men with combovers obviously are fine examples of to mi7.
8:59 am
jmcnrick

and do i get credits for bringing new blood into babbleland?
8:59 am
Haz1558

Yes, if you give clues you get credits as well.
8:59 am
jmcnrick

*gets out calculator*
8:59 am
hurshy

i don't think we can do credits for referrals. then we'd have to evaluate quality and it could get ugly.
8:59 am
EvaNadine

good clue there, haz. :)
9:00 am
Haz1558

No muscling in on my morewords worldwide representative status.
9:00 am
Vicuna

Hello, hursh.
9:00 am
EvaNadine

TY, got all the Ms and the W (which, really, you should all fish me for not seeing!)
9:00 am
hurshy

hello, vi.
9:00 am
Haz1558

And paypal's mine as well. (For encouraging people to go pro - you can use paypal!)
9:00 am
jmcnrick

how about for the supplies for the pb?
9:01 am
jmcnrick

help with the O for nbt
9:01 am
Haz1558

That's a good point, hurshy, evaluation of new babblers and quality of clues will have to be put to a committee.
9:01 am
Vicuna

op4 - gemstone, and pl
9:01 am
hurshy

oct birthstone
9:01 am
EvaNadine

ok, hints for the A and U in the bottom row?
9:01 am
jmcnrick

heck that is my mother's birthstone
9:02 am
Judi

Happy Monday, world Babblers.
9:02 am
Vicuna

up5 - illuminated from below
9:02 am
jmcnrick

i was wondering about that -- sometimes people give some pretty cryptic clues
9:02 am
Vicuna

up4 - babblet
9:02 am
hurshy

ai8 is from bottom
9:02 am
jmcnrick

nbt and I am off to save the world!
9:02 am
Vicuna

Go, jmc, go!
9:03 am
hurshy

if you violate certain ai8 the ai* force will shoot you down
9:03 am
Haz1558

Yes, but some people like to give and some people like to get cryptic clues. Others don't. Cryptic clues earn extra points.
9:04 am
EvaNadine

got the A, TY. still not seeing the UP4, but its short, so it will reveal itself to me soon, im sure. :)
9:04 am
Vicuna

up4 ends with simile word
9:04 am
jmcnrick

i was being polite. I don't actually mind cryptic but the ones with missing letters or letters transposed and otherwise just wrong
9:04 am
jmcnrick

bye all
9:04 am
jmcnrick

*poof*
9:04 am
EvaNadine

ahh, there we go. got the UP4.
thats NBT and NBS for me! :)
9:04 am
Haz1558

Bye, jmc. S** you s**n.
9:05 am
Vicuna

Bye, jmc!
9:06 am
Haz1558

Take your triumph while you can, EvaN. Prepare for the slog to get the rest.
9:06 am
Merk

Finished the s words, 17 to go.
9:08 am
EvaNadine

oh, i fully expect a slog, Haz. most days i dont have much time to babble, so NBT and NBS are my main goals. :)
9:09 am
Haz1558

I know the no blank tile thing but what's the NBS?
9:09 am
EvaNadine

no blank stats. :)
9:10 am
hurshy

i'm stuuuuck.
9:10 am
Haz1558

So, at least one representative from each of the length things?
9:11 am
Haz1558

At least one from each of the letter lengths available - does that sound better?
9:11 am
hurshy

it does
9:11 am
EvaNadine

egg-zachary
9:12 am
Haz1558

Do you feel tr5/12 and less than ra4/5, hurshy?
9:12 am
Haz1558

Okay, now I understand.
9:12 am
Merk

So are the to 6/7 something we wear walking in this bitterly cold weather we're having?
9:12 am
hurshy

kinda. but, i do have a very nice mitty kitty, so that helps the emotional state.
9:13 am
Haz1558

They're just things that working men would have on their boots.
9:13 am
hurshy

yay, i hadn't got those yet
9:13 am
Vicuna

Oh, thanks. I never see those.
9:13 am
Merk

To protect their feet while on the job?
9:14 am
Merk

I like my idea better ... sounds warmer.
9:14 am
Haz1558

Yes, often made of metal.
9:15 am
hurshy

any ce?
9:15 am
Haz1558

No, none.
9:15 am
Merk

Oh, I'm done! No, not any ce words
9:15 am
Merk

... so Fireworks!
9:16 am
Haz1558

Well done, Merk!
9:16 am
Vicuna

Yay for Merk!
9:16 am
Vicuna

I guess it's time to be productive for a bit. Bye for now, all.
9:16 am
Merk

And it only took me four hours ... not counting making and eating breakfast, talking on the phone, changing bed linens, doing tons of laundry ....
9:16 am
Haz1558

Bye, Vicuna.
9:17 am
Haz1558

That brings it down to 4 minutes.
9:17 am
Merk

Hah
9:17 am
Haz1558

It's just one of those grids that needs picked apart with tweezers.
9:17 am
Merk

I guess I'd better finish what I started so I can clean house and finish wrapping Xmas presents. See you tomorrow.
9:18 am
Haz1558

Bye, Merk - enjoy the day!
9:18 am
Merk

ty, I hope so. Tata
9:19 am
Haz1558

I should go as well, I have errands to run and the dreaded post office queue to face.
9:20 am

all M words are to do something wrongly.

I have time, my cold is improving, but my back hurts so the housework and shopping I had planned can wait another day.

We've actually had a bit of rain over the last couple of months, our dams are only at 38% (lowest in Aust) but still higher than last year. Only a few hot days so far - 38 this Wednesday but only for 1 day. Have you been copping all the snow and cold Stid?

Hello Stidmama, you and I are both suffering from bad colds? Mine is in my chest and it hurts when I cough.
1:54 pm
rumplestiltskin

I made some chicken soup. That is what my Mother always made for us when we were sick. Sure cure, she said.
1:55 pm
stidmama

rumple! (((hug))) yes, mine is in my chest and I had so much trouble with breathing yesterday. I am sorry you have the same.
1:55 pm
stidmama

Did the soup work?
1:56 pm
rumplestiltskin

It really does help. It feels so good going down your throat and warms up your chest.
1:56 pm
stidmama

I will get a can of soup out of the cupboard when I am ready for lunch then.

1:58 pm

2:06 pm
Atalante

cooool!
2:06 pm
stidmama

I think it will be fun, and a nice change of pace to go from the usual pre-holiday fare to something a little outlandish.
2:07 pm
stidmama

I found some copyright free "frames" to use to mount their best selections, so there will be a bit of an art element to it as well.
2:07 pm
Atalante

and then play Chinese Whispers with the stories to see what results you get!
2:08 pm
stidmama

oh what a fun idea! might be something we can do at the end of the time period just before they get on the bus.
2:08 pm
stidmama

I'll check with the teacher
2:08 pm
Atalante

we always used to do that in the last lessons of term, for some reason!

2:22 pm
crosshair

stupid duggers,she is popping out yet another kid..that makes 19
2:23 pm
jmcnrick

sorry to always ask hard questions
2:23 pm
Atalante

In the game variously known as Chinese whispers,[1] Telephone, Broken Telephone, Whisper Down the Lane, Gossip, Arab Phone (from the French Le téléphone arabe), and Stille Post (Silent Post), the first player whispers a phrase or sentence to the next player. Each player successively whispers what that player believes he or she heard to the next. The last player announces the statement to the entire group. Errors typically accumulate in the retellings, so the statement announced by the last player differs significantly, and often amusingly, from the one uttered by the first. The game is often played by children as a party game or in the playground. It is often invoked as a metaphor for cumulative error, especially the inaccuracies as rumours or gossip spread,[2] or, more generally, for the unreliability of human recollection.
2:23 pm

she is an argument for forced sterilization
2:23 pm

ooo telephone! I thought that might be it.

2:28 pm
robbie09

Don't be so quick to judge others. My dear friend has 13 brothers and sisters. It is a wonderful and dear family.
2:28 pm
kc8501

I just hope they do well, and that whatever happened has made her sterile, because otherwise her "religion" will have her continuing to get pregnant until menopause or she dies.

you may be right robbie,but it still seems excessive

I have seen how wonderful large families can be and how they help each other.
2:31 pm
jmcnrick

and I have seen how the children have been neglected and unloved in large families where the parents are too busy having babies to take care of the ones they have
2:32 pm
jmcnrick

personally having grown up bathing in used bath water I am not a fan
2:32 pm
kc8501

THeir kids are cared for... but only because the oldest 4 girls are really raising them. Once she's done breastfeeding and pregnant again she hands them off.
2:33 pm
robbie09

that is sad jmc, but that is not true of all large families
2:33 pm
jmcnrick

well that is a wonderful childhood for the 4 older girls
2:33 pm
crosshair

i have seen the same,mot to mention the strain on the medical resources,we are in a area that has a severe dr shortage,we are lucky,but there are many i know who have to go to walk ins or emerg for everything
2:33 pm
robbie09

i'm sure the older girls feel differently than you
2:34 pm
jmcnrick

and you know that how robbie?
2:34 pm
kc8501

I'm kind've bizarely fascinated with this family. I remember one of their 1st specials and the then 12 year old was so super excited about the new house -- because of the great new stove she'd have.

Hi all. I'm with jmc

Robbie, big families can be great, but this one follows the ideas of a man called Bill Gothard. Look it up. Very scary.
2:35 pm
robbie09

you got it Ata...my small family sucked
2:35 pm
jmcnrick

i think i will go back to talking to military members who want the hell out
2:35 pm

2:35 pm

pros and cons for each i suppose
2:35 pm

Look wgat you started, Crossy!
2:35 pm

2:37 pm
firefly779

there is something to be said about teaching your kids everything about how to grow up and do things yourself - cooking, cleaning, child rearing. I could've used those skills myself! I learned on my own AFTER I moved out.
2:37 pm
kc8501

100 years ago that woman would've been dead with her 2/3rd children because of her medical problems!! I hate that "100 yrs ago" thing! for every woman with lots of kids, plenty died with the first one!

i'm not talking about the 19 kids, just their way of life.

2:39 pm
HarryHood

add high sulfur fossil fuel
2:39 pm

black gold is what they mined from underground , the co4

it doesn't necessitate that the kids are unloved though

Gosh, only 55 left - how did that happen?
2:42 pm
firefly779

but, i think she is pushing herself too far
2:42 pm
firefly779

physically
2:42 pm
firefly779

sure, she should have the children God gives her, but she should have the sense to make her own decision when her body is giving out (and I think it truly is)
2:43 pm
firefly779

she won't do her surviving children any favors by dying in her 20th childbirth - if she chooses to keep going
2:44 pm
firefly779

at that point, i think she's being selfish and overzealous
2:45 pm
robbie09

well, I regret not having more children. How sad is that.
2:46 pm

spaniels are better :)

2:50 pm
Atalante

she's got her blood! yay! well, mostly
2:51 pm
bichon

2:54 pm
Becca Lorum

Hello everyone
2:54 pm
Atalante

she eventually got a line under her collar bone. lots of blood. 7 units at present
2:54 pm
hurshy

what made them decide to try again, i thought they wouldn't?
2:55 pm
bichon

Ata, she must be very ill
2:55 pm
hurshy

was it your persuasive powers?
2:55 pm
Atalante

we all kinda yelled at the surgeon
2:55 pm
Atalante

yes, just a little bit *sigh*
2:55 pm
hurshy

and he just said, ok, i'll try again? wow. go you guys.
2:55 pm
hurshy

no, i know how the story should go
2:56 pm
Nancy Boy

How awful, Ata. Well done for being so tenacious :)
2:56 pm
Atalante

we threatened to complain to our MP etc etc etc
2:56 pm
Atalante

and then her GP got her admitted over the head of the surgeon
2:56 pm
hurshy

the surgeon tells you he can't get the line in, and you sit there looking smug at him until he feels so ashamed that YOU, a non-surgeon, clearly know how to do it, that he decides he MUST rise to the challenge.
2:57 pm
Atalante

well, this time they tried something different!
2:57 pm
Becca Lorum

What's wrong with your sister Ata (if you don't mind explaining)?
2:58 pm
hurshy

next person who asks, tell them my smugness version.
2:58 pm
Atalante

she's got some crohn's-based autoimmune issues that show up as non-healing wounds, abcesses etc etc
2:59 pm
Atalante

she has open wounds from a double mastectomy 6 years ago
2:59 pm
Becca Lorum

Oh that sounds really terrible. How awful for her.
3:00 pm
Atalante

hurshy - I wrote him a letter quoting the Hippocratic Oath at him :)
3:00 pm
bichon

Ata, I am very sorry to hear that. My Mom had a radical mastectomy 50 years ago a a lumpectomy about 5 years ago. She's 85 now and has another lump in her breast
3:00 pm
Becca Lorum

Well done for getting the surgeon to do his job properly for her.
3:00 pm
hurshy

that's reasonably smug
3:01 pm
Team_Edward

ci 6 please
3:01 pm
Atalante

so far she has an ever increasing wound that's moving down her side, the open part is about 6 inches across, and is tracking down a lot. much owie. and you can see her heart beating through it
3:01 pm
Becca Lorum

Is there nothing they can do for her Ata?
3:02 pm
Atalante

no, it's just stabilisation mainly
3:02 pm
bichon

and this is from an autoimmune problem?
3:02 pm
Atalante

they *think* so. either some horrid form of Crohn's or some unknown autoimm. disorder
3:03 pm
Soulgirl

How old is she?
3:03 pm
Atalante

3:03 pm

3:07 pm

I hope that she is feeling considerably better already, atalante.
3:07 pm
Atalante

yes! that's the most important hurdle out of the way :)
3:07 pm
Soulgirl

They finally got a line into my daughter in her ankle
3:07 pm
Atalante

she was sounding grumpy earlier on, so that's a start :P
3:07 pm
hurshy

now she needs phages.
3:08 pm
stidmama

feeling well enough to be grumpy is a start, hope she feels well enough soon to NOT be grumpy...
3:08 pm

what are phages?
3:08 pm
stidmama

yes, phages would help, IF they can isolate the right ones. I assume some of them are unusual?
3:08 pm
stidmama

bateriophages are microbes that target bacteria for destruction.
3:08 pm
hurshy

they are these viruses that eat bacteria. they are really expert on them in eastern europe but the don't really get used in the west.
3:09 pm
stidmama

they have been used for nearly a century in some parts of the world, but Europe and the U.S. preferred to rely on antibiotics
3:09 pm
Becca Lorum

Wow, clever stuff.
3:09 pm
hurshy

unlike antibiotics, they are alive and evolve as the bacteria evolve. and they can make you your own special cocktail of various phages based on what bacteria are infecting you.
3:09 pm
Nancy Boy

Clever stuff indeed. What?
3:10 pm
stidmama

and phages alone may not be enough, if the real problem is the underlying immune deficiency
3:10 pm
stidmama

THERE you are, you young rascal! how are you? *checks for mascara smudges*
3:10 pm
Becca Lorum

That's amazing.
3:10 pm
hurshy

of course, yes, it doesn't help the underlying condition, but, definitely helps to get the wounds cleaned up.
3:10 pm
Atalante

maybe
3:11 pm
Becca Lorum

How do you all know this stuff?
3:11 pm
stidmama

often they use phage in combination with antibiotics in Georgia -- the antibiotics help initially, the phages do the rest.
3:11 pm
hurshy

we can't get them in the US because how do you do an FDA approval for something that's alive, evolving, used in a huge variety of combinations...?
3:11 pm
Nancy Boy

Hiii Stid :) bit shaken. Didn't go well at all. I had my baby pictures handed to me in an envelope, and...now I have no dad
3:11 pm
hego

ca5, 16 anyone? pls
3:11 pm
stidmama

I know because we have many friends who are active in the use of therapeutic phages.
3:11 pm
hurshy

i read an article about a doc who flew to romania to get some phages to bring back for a patient he had with a wound problem.
3:12 pm
stidmama

((((NancyBoy)))) I am so sorry. (((More hugs))) you can borrow my Tom any time. Another son would be lovely for us, and the stidkids would love a big brother, too.
3:12 pm
stidmama

that is real. It's not the same as your real dad, but -- I just want you to know that it's him, not you. YOU are a lovable young man.
3:13 pm
hego

Gosh NB, that's awful.
3:13 pm
Nancy Boy

Thanks Stid :) no, it's what I expected. I mean, he won't change. Felt so sorry for mum though.
3:13 pm
hego

If it's any help, we love you.
3:13 pm
stidmama

if you don't have the right phages, they won't work, and if you don't use them right, healing can be peculiar.
3:14 pm
stidmama

But they can save lives, and have, many times.
3:14 pm
hurshy

oh, at first it sounded like your dad had died - i take it that instead there is some rift.
3:14 pm
hego

Can I get a clue for that ca5, 16 pls?
3:14 pm
Nancy Boy

Of course it helps, Hego :') thank you. My -ahem- new flatmate helped too, of course. Now miles away, safe in London.
3:14 pm
Atalante

NB, it's better to have a conclusion with people like that, rather than keep a hope alive. You will always have a father, just not a dad
3:14 pm

Any help with the mi words? I cannot figure out a single one. are They related?

Thank you, all :)
3:15 pm
stidmama

GOOD for you both! what's the flat like? is there space to swing a cat? (who does things like that anyway?) do you have enough room for all your fancy clothes, or do you need to rent the next apartment for those?
3:15 pm

LOL Stid! There is room - just! Place is small but very nice and cosy. Up several flights of stairs with no lift so I'll get very fit...
3:16 pm
Becca Lorum

You got a new place then NB?
3:17 pm
Nancy Boy

Yep, Becca, moved in with my bf :) hence the...disowning
3:17 pm
stidmama

Wonderful, being young and walking up stairs is fine. Being OLD as the hills (like me) I don't think I would survive! LOL
3:18 pm
Nancy Boy

Only as old as the man you feel, Stid ;)
3:18 pm
Becca Lorum

Oh dear. It's a shame he can't accept and understand. But congrats on the flat and the moving in tog thing :o)
3:18 pm
Becca Lorum

Its great living with someone you love.
3:19 pm
stidmama

when I was your age, I had a second-floor apartment, several blocks from the place I worked. I had GREAT legs back then. *sigh* and then... Life happened. oh well *shrug* I'm still pretty spry for 100 (too bad I'm not even halfway there yet)
3:19 pm

also, ata, did you like the cartoon one, dreamland? i don't tend to like cartoon versions of live action things - cause for instance one of the best things in the show has been david tennant's facial expressiveness - but aside from that, i thought it was relatively enjoyable. some funny lines.
3:29 pm

i'm glad my attempts to convince my family to try babble never succeeded - now i can still say stuff here that i wouldn't necessarily say to them.
3:34 pm
Becca Lorum

I'm off - goodnight all.
3:34 pm
Atalante

ditto!
3:35 pm

Good point, Hurshy. There's got to be places where you can just be yourself, though I'm not so hot on family at the moment.

3:38 pm
Nancy Boy

Thanks for asking :) but not well at all. He said if I was going to go with my bf, I may as well never come back, and then handed me all my baby photographs etc in a big envelope, because he didn't want them in the house anymore. So, bad.
3:42 pm

So very sorry. Can I be your long distance, little known surrogate mom? My son died in January. Family and friends are all that really matter!!
3:44 pm

Oh Origami, I'm so sorry. But everyone here has been so kind and supportive, I'm accepting all the babble surrogate family members I can get :)

Jayk

Hi all. Not usually on this time of night, and on now just to sign off in defeat. I only had an hour this morning, and I only got 132. This is a very depressing obsession! Maybe tomorow will be better?
8:14 pm
jmcnrick

but ty both
8:14 pm
welki

hi, jay .. don't let it get you down. this grid is the pits
8:14 pm
Jayk

Yeah, it's bad
8:15 pm
pythonx

yeah, suckie grid, not your fault
8:15 pm
jmcnrick

it is not about completing it is about having fun
8:15 pm
Anniebrook

This grid can drive you to drink as I am pouring myself some Baileys
8:15 pm
welki

and even if it wasn't a suckie grid, it's never your fault ... always blame an outside source

It's FM"s fault
8:16 pm
pythonx

yah, FM's fault!!
8:16 pm
Jayk

still, one's eternal hope is complete success. As a newbie, i am thinking i have to set myself some limits--like no more than an hour? or if more than 150, do not attempt?
8:16 pm
Anniebrook

HA HA
8:17 pm
pythonx

good luck with that, babble sucks you in
8:17 pm
Nef

Jayk, you are new to the game. It's kind of like life: a process, not a destination! ;-)
8:17 pm
welki

jay .. forget about the ranking stuff. we're both fairly new, we'll never climb this ladder. fun fun fun. if you're not having fun, then it's time to sign off
8:17 pm
jmcnrick

8:17 pm
welki

*clink*
8:17 pm

i always say i won't do one over 150, but when i log on to see the size i get sucked in
8:18 pm

8:18 pm
Jayk

Pythonx--OH yeah! it does. But I'd like to think i still have some (diminishing) control over my choice of time!
8:18 pm
jmcnrick

wait let me get my jack!
8:19 pm

i don't always finish, like welki said, it's for fun, not to win

Jayk, if I would have tried to finish EVERY grid I've ever done, I'd be bald (from pulling out my hair or wearing tinfoil hats) and have absolutely NO life at all!
8:21 pm
SeaSpray

i know, i am thinking of all that i should be doing instead lol
8:21 pm
Jayk

Pyth--I'm not trying to "win," exactly (OK, I am), just hate feeling so frustrated that I don't see sometimes even the obvious words. Like I see "pala***" but for the longest time dont see the words embedded in that!
8:21 pm

Jayk, as time goes by and you get used to the babblets, it will get better. then of course there are the really obscure ones that no one really gets
8:22 pm
