12:53 am

yuck. we had snow, but then it rained and now we have wet, wet, wet
12:53 am

we also get black ice -- and sometimes lots of snow but it doesn't last long usually
12:53 am

12:54 am

it's just started snowing again here -- not supposed to get more than 5cm overnight though
12:54 am

black ice is the worst. I don't mind winter driving too much, but black ice is scary

did someone say the 9 is a de?
12:55 am
swmbo

yes, i have been looking but i am completely clueless LOL
12:55 am
jillibus

well, this was almost like black ice, and I had to come up this hill which is narrow and curvy and steepish in spots. I was shaking for quite a while when I finally got home.
12:56 am
SamanthaJoy

wow, jill, that sounds terrifying.
12:56 am
jillibus

It was.
12:56 am
swmbo

it does sound pretty awful. hills and curves with ice, bad
12:57 am
SamanthaJoy

I'm very glad you made it home all right. Congratulations on your driving skill; it must have been quite dangerous, and I'm glad you're warm and dry now.
12:57 am
jillibus

not quite ice, but tracks in the snow which would catch and slide the car sideways
12:57 am
SamanthaJoy

We just stay indoors in weather like that, including the time my husband got trapped at work for two days.
12:58 am
jillibus

thanks, sam. I couldn't stay indoors -- had an appointment in Victoria made last August, didn't want to miss it. Weather was ok when I started out.
12:59 am
swmbo

unfortunately i work 1/2 hour by highway from my home, and being 'storm stayed' isn't an option most of the time
1:00 am
cybernan

need one more j, but have no idea what it could be
1:00 am
SamanthaJoy

well, {{{hugs}}} to you jill. I know how it feels; we get days like that and I bet you were nearly sobbing with relief when you got home safely
1:01 am
SamanthaJoy

swmbo, in this case they had literally thousands of employees who didn't leave the building for two days. it was one of the nastiest ice storms this area has ever had, and we're southern so not prepared to deal with weather like that
1:01 am
meliae

ok listing I am going crazy here
1:01 am
jillibus

Too right, sam!
1:02 am
swmbo

yikes, that sounds BAD. I have the option of staying at work and I have a locker full of 'necessities' but it is getting to work that is crucial. i work in a health facility and if i don;t show up, another nurse gets to stay
1:02 am
SamanthaJoy

Yes. The worst is when it kicks in halfway through the drive. It's not safe to go back and it's not safe to go one and you know it will be hours before anyone can come to help, so what do you do?
1:03 am
swmbo

meliae how can we calm your craziness?
1:04 am
SamanthaJoy

Well, yes, swm, it was pretty awful but fortunately it doesn't get like that very often. it was a freak storm and people were camping out on conference tables and grumbling; thankfully the power never went out
1:04 am
meliae

find me my last 60 words lol
1:04 am
swmbo

hmmm, sicne i still have 101 to go, that might be tough, but i am willing to try...
1:05 am
SamanthaJoy

Because of jill's story, I keep phantoming "ordeal"
1:05 am
jillibus

Thia was a long day. I left here at 8:50 am to catch the 9:50 ferry to Victoria. Luckily was able to get the 3 pm ferry back and the snow had just begun. Got home, shaking, at about 4:30 pm. If I'd missed the 3 pm ferry the next one was at 5 pm and it would have been worse, and dark to boot.
1:06 am
cybernan

if you can have fe 4/9 why not the 6?
1:06 am

I guess the hatfields and mccoys don't count, huh?
1:06 am

only The Babbler knows....
1:06 am
cybernan

guess not
1:07 am
SamanthaJoy

oh, jill, and the power was still on so you had the option of making hot cocoa?
1:07 am
swmbo

well, now jilli you can relax with some tea maybe and Babble. and us.
1:08 am

phooey on cocoa and tea -- a nice stiff vodka on the rox was in order!

1:29 am
flosey

I'd ask jilli
1:29 am
jillibus

I'll ask if they have the results yet.
1:29 am
jillibus

Of course, the forecast is for rain to wash it all away
1:30 am
flosey

when I asked the receptionist to fax the results to me once, I was told 'but you wouldn't know how to read them" - why would I ask if I couldn't
1:31 am
flosey

the other receptionist always faxed them to me
1:31 am

i've put the business with a broker so now i await results, i am really ready to retire and have decided i will take any offer, i would have to work another couple of years to get a good price after this economic downturn and i am just not prepared to
4:24 am

I hope you get a good result, Andree. As you say, you could be hanging on for a while with no guarantees of a better outcome.

Big step Andree, a hard decision I bet. Well done

I know Slainte, that's about the height of it.
4:47 am
Atalante

the most important word
4:47 am

The weird thing is hearing Irish spoken with a Northern accent and English words interspersed. They haven't got words for some things so the English has to do.

Okay, it wasn't a proper traffic red light, it was one of those lights set up by people making holes in the road.

So far, so good, no summons in the post or anything.

Sometimes you just have to defy rules. Once a decade or so, just to show you have a mind of your own.

5:03 am

Its a bit of a stretch but we can imagine BabRab's icon is the back view of 2 dogs (kinda)
5:03 am

Labels are only intended to label anyway

5:12 am
Haz1558

I sewed a label on my daughter's apron for Home Economics. The teacher, being a Home Economics teacher and therefore fussy as can be, pointed out how badly it was sewn and told her to get it re6/21. It so happened that it was parent teacher interview that evening, so I introduced myself 'Hello, I'm the mother who can't sew.'

I am sure seapie should be accepted
5:15 am

The staples would have been too big. We're talking fiddly wee things. Hems are fine for the occasional safety pin, and you can get away with sellotape for a while.

I have those. And also the Yaktraks. They are great, although they do change the way your foot hits the ground which can create some probems with frequent walking.
6:35 am
Eva

Is there a trick to snow shoeing? I've seen films where people make it look so beautiful and easy, but when I use mine I look like a drunken penguin, and although it does make it possible to get through deep snow it certainly isn't easy or graceful.

indeed eve,when you swing the foot foward,you go in a gentle outside arc,while gently dragging the back end of the snow shoe,then repeat with other foot(older style of shoe)

Hi crossy
6:44 am

howdy annie:)))
6:45 am

I do have the newer metal ones. But the slight outside arc is important....would keep me from stepping on my feet. Also good to know that it's supposed to take so much energy. I thought I was doing something wrong.
6:46 am

it is very good for your cardivascular sys;0

damn typos
6:47 am

30 minutes on a pair of those is like 2 hours in the gym hehe
6:48 am
Eva

It's the only way I can refill the birdfeeder later in the winter. Also, I didn't realize the first times that with new snow you need to pack down the snow with one foot before stepping into it...otherwise you end up thigh deep and stuck. The only way I could get out was by lying on my back and pulling my leg out.
6:48 am

i sweat so badly when i do that,i have to think very carefully about layering with the clothes

6:53 am

Does he like Costa Rica. Everyone I know who has gone loves it. But I don't speak Spanish (English, French and some Hebrew but no Spanish) and although I know that lots of people there speak English it always feels bad to me to go somewhere and assume that people will adapt to my langauge needs.

I find the whole concept of family fascinating. Can you imagine what it must have been like for those left behind when the early immigrants set off? In those days there was every chance that they would never see them again.
7:40 am
EvaNadine

i think that depends on the background at hand, and how many generations back it goes in the states. i have friends who are indian or middle-eastern in heritage whose parents fully expect them to marry within their own culture, or might even have arranged marriages. for other cultures, people dont really care.
my parents came straight from england + im sure they always assumed i would marry a white guy, though they never assumed he would be of english heritage. but if i had chosen someone of another background, they would be fine with that too.

i agree mom. but i think it also depends on where those roots come from.
i think some cultures (whether in the states or in their own country) are just more strict about marrying outside of your culture. and some cultures dont really care...

I personally have a problem with those who will not salute the flag because they don't "believe" in it (religious reasons excepted)... but, when you refuse to salute the flag or serve in the armed forces because "your" country has done you wrong (see: the civil rights movement) then it is fine.

We have tons of stereotypes here in the states, Haz.
7:48 am
EvaNadine

oh yeah. california is laid-back where as new yorkers are uptight + quick. southerners are a little slow/backwards. there are stereotypes about all the different regions. but really, they are only true for some people of that region + you really have a lot more diversity than you would think.
7:48 am
Haz1558

Yes, the unifying culture does come across when you look in from the outside. To British eyes, the patriotism seems total and unquestioning. I'm not criticising, just observing.
7:48 am
mom2han8

I grew up in a mainly Scots-Irish community... the Irish drank and the Scots were cheap, LOL....

Maybe what I mean is patriotism in the face of opposition from outside influences. It's a bit like some families, you can fight the bit out among yourselves, but unite if anybody outside dares to say anything critical.

Flosey.... I cannot answer for all Americans, LOL... I would have to say that I would certainly defend my country if I believed that what they were doing was right.

8:02 am
Haz1558

It's outlawed in some states at least.

I used to miss raia , but now I see it
8:06 am

those are sneeky too, indeed, m2h8
8:06 am
Haz1558

fo8/55 - a compound word, think in terms of old style shipping.
8:06 am

wow Aloy, you learn! That is more than I can say for some words, grin.

Oh! Part of a ship!
8:09 am
mom2han8

ok... gotta run and do the domestic goddess thing... UGH! What I would really like Santa to bring me is a laundry room on the same floor in which I generate the most laundry, LOL. Not gonna happen.
8:09 am
mom2han8

OMG Merk.. I know.
8:09 am
sprite

*giggle* Made it to elder!
8:09 am
Judi

Hell with the laundry room, mom. Just ask santa for a maid.
8:09 am
Haz1558

Bye mom. Just be glad you're not having to do it all by hand, can you imagine?
8:09 am
mom2han8

ah Judi... from your mouth to God's ear.
8:10 am
Merk

These new houses that have their laundry rooms right by the bedrooms where the most laundry is generated ... wow ... what a concept, and it took forever to think of it.
8:10 am
Aloyisius

heaven's, no Sprite.. "raia" took forever
8:10 am
sprite

there are gradations of nu4. Like having a low neckline in church can be nu5 than being nekkid in the sauna
8:10 am
mom2han8

True Haz... when I ask my husband or daughter to throw a load in they look at me like "What???"... and I tell them that I am not asking them to drag it to the river and bang it on a rock!
8:10 am
Merk

LOL
8:10 am
mom2han8

OMG Merk... I know. Awesome.
8:10 am

selfcleaning house and clothes, and selfcooking dinners. Selfshopping groceries. Santa, please.

8:11 am
Haz1558

I think we'd all change less often if we really did have to put physical effort into washing.
8:11 am
mom2han8

I hear that in Europe they have those machines that wash AND dry... can you even imagine that???
8:11 am
Judi

A running dryer is good white noise to induce sleep.
8:11 am
sprite

oh yes Haz. Like in the old days, when they had a weekly dress and a sunday dress. And that was it.
8:12 am
mom2han8

I think you are probably right, Haz... but I will do sacrifice doing the laundry to wear clean clothes, LOL.
8:12 am
EvaNadine

i need self-writing and self-sending christmas cards. i just couldnt be bothered this year, so no ones gets any from me. :/
8:12 am
Aloyisius

very "green" practice!
8:12 am
Haz1558

We have combined washer-driers, yes, but they're not great. The wash is okay but you can only dry half a load at a time. The washing line is a great thing!"
8:12 am
sprite

they eat power like there is no tomorrow though, m2h8.
8:12 am
Judi

Cleanliness is next to laundress.
8:12 am
mom2han8

Yes Sprite.. but what might they all have smelled like??
8:13 am
mom2han8

Do they, Sprite? Interesting.
8:13 am
sprite

our spoiled noses wouldn't like it one bit
8:13 am
sprite

and what Haz says: you have to be there anyway to remove half of the laundry before drying, or you have to wash half washes. I use the line, and if need be, a dryer.
8:14 am
mom2han8

Haz... I love line-dried laundry... unfortunately I don't live in a climate where that is always realistic.
8:14 am
Haz1558

I've just found a laundry related sa7/32. Descriptive of the implement when drip dry fabrics were invented.
8:15 am
mom2han8

And I can't imagine line-drying my panties and such, LOL... the neighbors would certainly have something to talk about, LOL.
8:15 am
Aloyisius

ty Haz, looking..
8:15 am
Haz1558

I'm easily pleased, I love hanging out washing. Or maybe I have Dutch blood and appreciate not having to pay!?
8:15 am
sprite

I think I am about to learn a new word then, haz
8:16 am
Haz1558

Maybe it should be when wrinkle-free fabrics came on the scene.
8:16 am
sprite

no doubt about that, Haz... economical and cleanliness combined, that must be dutch blood talking
8:16 am
mom2han8

I can barely get the family to throw a load in the dryer... can you imagine if I asked them to use clothespins??? I don't even know if my kid has ever seen a clothespin, LOL.
8:16 am
Haz1558

Who knows, sprite, I've only got back to the first part of the 19th century with my family tree. There's time to find Dutch ancestry yet.
8:17 am
mom2han8

OK.. really going now.... all of this crud is not going to do itself. See you all later... nice chatting, as always.

8:22 am

hi Nef, it isn't as bad as yesterdays
8:22 am
Haz1558

sprite, that's really interesting, mainly because I had a great-aunt who in her seventies suddenly could dispense with reading glasses.
8:22 am
Haz1558

She always claimed she had got her second sight, it's interesting to know that it corresponds to a known process.
8:22 am
sprite

strange, isn't it. A blessing that comes with aging, not bad at all.
8:23 am
Haz1558

I've definitely learned something new today.
8:23 am

yes, me too. Rewarding grid and good chat.
8:24 am
Haz1558

It has been good, I agree. And now I really must get something to eat. I've still to tackle a few cards this afternoon so I'll need to keep my strength up.

none of the re's are uncommon. one turns back on itself to get found.

9:26 am

yes, I find them annoying
9:29 am

9:31 am

ahh, you're both sweet to say that. ((HUGS))
9:32 am

one interesting thing I've always noticed is that the babblets kind of run in streaks. If you run across a new babblet one day; you will see it in a number of grids the same week or 2
9:34 am

but it's true, lbd! *I* don't know if *I* can say that you are batty or not. *I'm* playing the same word game; so I can't judge someone else!

9:57 am
periwinkle

does it hve to sit a while or can it be used right away. might be fun to make it for New Years. I am going to a party
9:58 am
lbdawger

aging? HAHAHAHA nope it's ready to be consumed as soon as the blender stops!
9:59 am
lbdawger

9:59 am
periwinkle

lbd, does it matter if it is dark or light rum?
9:59 am
Nef

10:00 am
periwinkle

where do you get the Maxine icons, lbd?
10:00 am
lbdawger

i don't think it matters, peri. i'm not a rum officianado
10:01 am
periwinkle

10:01 am
lbdawger

lol Nef. my sisters have proven that it doesn't need to sit for long. i'm more of the tea tottler.
10:02 am
lbdawger

I make it for gifts for my neighbors. i shouldn't enable their drinking behaviours, but what the heck. i've also used it the truffles i make.
10:02 am
sciencegeek

wow this is giving me a major headache. probably need the list with 111 left
10:02 am
Nef

I hear you lbd. I seem to have the puking genes when it comes to booze in our family (we have several alcoholics, I wish that this gene was shared by them!)
10:05 am
lbdawger

i've worked with alcohols in my previous career, and that pretty much took the punch out of me. I'll take a small shot of baileys in my hot choc or coffee, but i'm really a light weight. asian gene factor too.
10:05 am
sciencegeek

runs in my family on both sides!
10:06 am
sciencegeek

irish and american indian ---nuf said
10:06 am
lbdawger

alcoholism or the puking gene, geek?
10:06 am
lbdawger

oh...nm
10:07 am
sciencegeek

alcoholism
10:08 am
Nef

LOL, science! Alcoholism runs on both sides for me too; but one side is Irish and the other side is Norwegian (not really noted for drunks in my neck of the woods)
10:09 am
Nef

lbd, did you work with alcohols or alcoholics? Just curious
10:09 am
lbdawger

uhm actually both, Nef. I was a bartender as well as a counselor! professional on both levels.
10:09 am
sciencegeek

yes i have learned that i cannot drink because i cannot stop......
10:10 am
lbdawger

geek, at least you learned that lesson before it ruined your life!
10:10 am
Nef

you are wise to have learned that lesson, science. Many people don't

10:18 am
flosey

10:19 am
flosey

it takes strength of character to own up to our flaws
10:20 am
sciencegeek

problem is that i love to drink - suppose that is the major issue! lol
10:20 am
flosey

could someone please help me with sa7?
10:20 am
Nef

and even more strength to avoid getting sucked into those flaws.
10:20 am

10:21 am
Haz1558

sa7 - compoundish word. A morose dewrinkling device.
10:21 am
sciencegeek

ty haz great clue
10:22 am
Haz1558

You're welcome.
10:22 am
Nef

science; drinking is fine; just stay away from the alcohol. I like the taste of alcohol; but hate the after effects. I had to finally come to realize that I liked not puking more than I liked the taste
10:23 am
Atalante

I really thought Haz wrote a "mouse dewrinkling device"
10:23 am
flosey

thanks Haz
10:24 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, flosey.
10:24 am
Nef

great clue; and I mis-read it too! :-)
10:24 am
Haz1558

Like in some of the Tom and Jerry cartoons?
10:24 am
Haz1558

Where a great weight falls and renders Jerry flat as a pancake?
10:25 am
Nef

LOL!
10:27 am
Haz1558

Tom and Jerry - the original name of Simon and Garfunkel.
10:28 am
sciencegeek

clue for the do 6???
10:28 am
Nef

how do you mean, Haz?
10:28 am
Haz1558

do6 - plural for a type of fish.
10:28 am
Haz1558

Literally, when Simon and Garfunkel first formed, they were named Tom and Jerry by their recording firm.
10:29 am
sciencegeek

that doesnt help me......clue for the fish?
10:29 am
Atalante

paul simon being jerry, I presume?
10:29 am
Haz1558

do plus an anagram of a word meaning 'to get up'
10:30 am
Haz1558

Or, pretend that the do4/5 preceding ended in a y, and make it plural.
10:30 am
Nef

really, Haz? that is very odd (of course they were "unusual" looking !
10:30 am
sciencegeek

ty haz got it
10:30 am
inge

Help please with pe 4, after the spanish man
10:30 am
sciencegeek

i was going the wrong way on the grid
10:30 am
Haz1558

I don't know which was which.
10:31 am
Haz1558

They only really achieved fame once they got a bit older and changed their names to Simon and Garfunkel.
10:31 am
Haz1558

pe4 - past tense of to urinate in childish fashion
10:31 am
sciencegeek

inge pe double the vowel and add a cons
10:31 am
sciencegeek

there are a couple
10:32 am
inge

thanks Haz, that deserves a fish
10:32 am
Haz1558

Glad you got it, inge.

Oh ATA. 7:30 is not sleeping in. Now me, -I- can sleep in ;)
10:53 am

Hello NB
10:55 am
Nancy Boy

What time is your usual start, Ata?
10:55 am
flosey

np, found it now
10:55 am
Nancy Boy

Hi, Zooz :) I'm making no pretence of trying to finish the grid today - sort of babbling whilst cooking
10:55 am
Atalante

about 5:30 - 6. Only because my stupid body continually wakes me up then!
10:55 am
Nef

what are you cooking, NB?
10:56 am
Nef

oh, Ata! I hear you about the body waking you! It's a PIA when that happens!
10:56 am
zoozzoom

well i have finished the grid earlier, but i did start about 9:00am
10:57 am
Nancy Boy

ooh, some old Korean dish that I don't know the name of. Always a big hit, got lots of lovely things in it - wish I knew the name...have the recipe off by heart though
10:57 am
Atalante

my body seems to think insomnia is a really cool thing!
10:57 am
Nancy Boy

Oh man, Ata. If I could, I'd throw my bodily alarm clock against the wall.
10:57 am
zoozzoom

well dish some out then..i am hungry here.

10:58 am

what's in it, NB? I'm not familiar with Korean foods, there are a fair number of Koreans here, but most restaurants are so-called "Chinese" or "Asian"
10:58 am
zoozzoom

once up** a time
10:58 am
Nancy Boy

Not for aaages yet :D still got a thousand other things to chop and measure out half-teaspoons of and spice and taste and boil and simmer and...ugh

10:59 am
zoozzoom

un + low calorie mayonaise - the `e` on the end
10:59 am
Nef

u word= dark
11:00 am
zoozzoom

thats the low calorie one :-)
11:00 am
Nancy Boy

Surprisingl, Nef, in many chinese restaurants they do LOADS of traditional Korean dishes that are just masquerading as Chinese! You're probably more familiar with it than you think :)
11:00 am
Nef

yep. :-)
11:01 am
Nancy Boy

and as such I feel let down by 'udon' not being a word, though that's more japanese.
11:01 am
Nef

That's what I think, NB. I used to do a lot of wok cooking; but now that DH is retired, he runs the kitchen and he never mastered the wok
11:01 am
zoozzoom

change the second letter NB and you have a word :-)
11:02 am
Nancy Boy

11:02 am

11:06 am
Atalante

especially ice cream
11:07 am
Nancy Boy

Hey Ruru :) thanks for asking - the move was absolutely awful, but I'm glad I'm here now. Had to do it at one point, and it's great to have that pressure off.
11:07 am

11:28 am

you just have to live with it really!
11:29 am
Nancy Boy

but just talking about it made me cold...either that or the door's just sent a blast of cold air in
11:29 am

I grew up in NW Minnesota and moved south for the warmer climate here! It often got down to -40 (F) temperature wise! (International Falls, MN isn't known as the ice box of the nation for nothing!)
11:30 am

I like the cold here at only minus 5 c at the worst! lol
11:30 am
Atalante

brrrrrrrrrrr
11:31 am

I didn't grow up in International falls, I grew up about 60 miles south of Canada and 50 miles east of North Dakota. The wind chill was nasty

12:09 pm
zoozzoom

12:09 pm
EvaNadine

EvaNadine

*awaiting proof that NB didnt escape whilst i was gone*
12:11 pm
zoozzoom

for the size of the island, i would say more than the average...there is always some-one you know who knew the person who got killed...and most of them are teenagers.
12:11 pm

1:20 pm

I remember having a protractor in Geometry and drawing pretty flower petals with it
1:20 pm
Atalante

I always draw circles. Lots of circles :)
1:21 pm
mixi6

I only had Geometry for a couple months. I don't remember drawing anything. (I do remember they had to give me an A for it).
1:21 pm

1:23 pm

many many years ago. I didn't like calculus with geometry. Could never picture it.
1:23 pm

Are Americans the only people in the world who refer to math in the singular?
1:24 pm
Atalante

yep :P
1:24 pm
mixi6

It has a plural?
1:24 pm
Uneaixoise

i think so, bichon :-)
1:25 pm
rbud

mathematics is a plural, after all...
1:25 pm
zoozzoom

A good score is what ever you are pleased with i suppose Ruby, i am not too bothered about the score, i just enjoy finding the words & either chatting or lurking at the chat..lol
1:25 pm

has M. Ed. in math (singular)
1:27 pm
bichon

I've always heard students from around the world refer to it in the plural, as well as mails [which Americans only refer to as singular].
1:28 pm
Atalante

what is the reason for you lot using the singular?
1:28 pm
Uneaixoise

your guess is as good as mine . . .
1:29 pm
mixi6

I live now in the South and they refer to it has 59 cent. Singular. Drives me up the wall. I guess it's a matter of learned or habit.
1:29 pm
Atalante

and we also don't divide it into separate subjects. it's just maths. in which we study calc and geometry and trig and and and
1:31 pm
rbud

ah, more than one "math" lumped together = maths
1:32 pm
Atalante

but it's a general term. we study ethics, not ethic etc
1:32 pm
Uneaixoise

ata, for me, "math" was a subject in the lower grade levels -- then in high school we "graduated" to algebra, geometry, trig, calculus . . .
1:33 pm
Uneaixoise

no argument here -- just sayin' . . .
1:33 pm
bichon

But it's always "math homework" not "maths homework"
1:33 pm
rbud

I think of it as just another endearing way the English lang. varies... as in boot = trunk, bonnet = hood, etc.
1:34 pm
Atalante

if you hated maths, having to do 3 subjects must have been awful!
1:34 pm
Atalante

3 or 4 or however many
