6:18 am
Scrabbler

Ata, I must tell you my fine yesterday because you are the only one that would think it was cool...during my hike I found the guts of a whitetail deer that probably some hunter tossed off the side of the road. I studied anatomy for a while--heart, lungs, liver, gall bladder, stomachs, intestines...
6:18 am
Trifioso

oooh -name that proper noun! popular female singer of the 1980s, probably best known for a duet with Todd Rudgren
6:19 am
Trifioso

isn't that illegal, scrab?
6:19 am
Atalante

ooooo wow! to both! poor kids! and how fascinating
6:19 am
Atalante

it's so much easier to do that when you don't have a mad little spaniel running around you wanting to investigate too!
6:20 am
Scrabbler

Yes, it is illegal as it draws predators. But it was fascinating--mostly frozen.
6:20 am
Trifioso

it does sound fascinating - how many stomachs do deers have, just the one?
6:20 am
Atalante

I bet it was! Isn't it wonderful when you find things like that
6:21 am
Scrabbler

And a bloody towel was next to it.

I notified the sheriff's office when I got home.

how did you know they were deer entrails?
6:21 am

4 stomachs, i think, like cows
6:21 am
Atalante

will they go and pick it up / bury it?
6:21 am
Scrabbler

I came home and went to Google Images and did my research.
6:22 am
Trifioso

hmmm. are deer kosher? I have always wondered that
6:23 am
Haz1558

Deer are ruminants and have four chambers to their stomach.
6:24 am
Atalante

so they can ruminate a lot
6:24 am
Eva

I think that deer are kohser, but they would have to be slaughtered by a kosher butcher-not through hunting.
6:24 am
Haz1558

They're like cattle in that they chew cud.
6:24 am
Scrabbler

I must run now! I have to shower, dress and depart in negative 8 minutes. I am always late.

I have seen some deer wearing Star of David necklaces.

were they Sephadim or Ashkenazim?

Let's face it, if Spangle can survive for hours in a cold, damp kennel for hours, Hobbit can manage.
7:08 am
Haz1558

Why did I emphasis 'for hours'?
7:09 am
Atalante

because she's there for ever and a day and unloved!
7:09 am
Atalante

7:09 am
Haz1558

Ata, must tell you that the other night I tried to leave Spangle in the kitchen overnight. She was having none of it, insisted on trotting out to her kennel.

Haz1558

He wouldn't have known, he was already in bed. I was trying to do it on the quiet, but Spangle gave it away by howling in the kitchen.

Atalante

I wish Hobbit could howl properly. Just once.
7:13 am
Haz1558

I know, she has a bed in the kitchen, one in the lounge but apparently the one in the kennel is the only one for overnight snoozing.

7:14 am
Atalante

7:14 am
Atalante

7:14 am
Haz1558

She has a really funny howl for when she's pleased to so you again. It gets progressively lower pitched until you think she's trying to say something.
7:15 am
Trifioso

7:16 am
Atalante

she does a funny little 4 quick snorts to say hello, and she does it every time I go to see her or she sees me. Then there's a different snort pattern for when she sees husband, and another for when she wants food

Haz1558

Same here, 5 inches of snow (a lot for us) and no thaw as yet.
8:56 am
jmcnrick

the amount is less important than the ability to deal with it!
8:56 am
wht

I can't ig6 work any longer. I'll be dropping in and out all day. ttfn.
8:56 am
Anniebrook

We got 13 inches but Washington DC got 22 inches. Oh poor jmc.
8:57 am
jmcnrick

you'r at work wht?
8:57 am
Haz1558

That's the problem, we get small amounts of snow. Town roads aren't so bad, country roads are lethal.
8:57 am
jmcnrick

well I do get the day off annie (except it's my sister's birthday and I am behind on that and my christmas)
8:58 am
Anniebrook

5 inches is a dusting here.
8:58 am
jmcnrick

it is the cold that is the problem hhere since it is keeping the snow and turning it into ice
8:58 am
Haz1558

I know, we're wimps.
8:58 am
jmcnrick

not at all haz!
8:58 am

8:59 am
Anniebrook

I am going to go out to the parking lot and take a look at the "getting my car out" situation later.
8:59 am
jmcnrick

when I was a girl in Texas an inch would bring the city to a grinding halt -- a half inche even
8:59 am
wht

Yes, I am. For us, the storm was most convenient. It started snowing at overnight and was over by 3:00 pm on Sunday. The snow was all light and fluffy and we were dug out before dark.
8:59 am
jmcnrick

nice wht
9:00 am
jmcnrick

I am in a pretty good situation because one of my neighbors bought a snowblower and did both sidewalks and the street around the neighbors cars
9:00 am
jmcnrick

and then another neigh with tow boys cleared out my car most of the way
9:00 am
wht

We had a nice day at home and decorated our Chritsmas tree and digging out was easy, especially since both kids are home and helped.
9:00 am
Anniebrook

I am happy for the ski resorts.
9:00 am
Judi

I'm missing one i. I have the eskimo home, the disregard(s), the il4 and the wee bit(s). What am I missing?

Hi all.......is Lickety on holiday?

Unfortunately, in New England this was a coastal storm and the ski resorts got nothing.
9:01 am

9:04 am
Flask1

I didn't manage to finish last 2....

9:05 am

Hootowl, can I apologise for my part in the politicial/historical ting in the log yesterday? I just got irritated, I should have stayed quiet. But onward and upward.

Well it was my second time there.
9:07 am

o I missed a political fight?
9:08 am
jmcnrick

I may have to go read yesterday's archive
9:08 am

It wasn't a political fight, really. Just me getting cross.

9:08 am
Haz1558

Frequently!
9:08 am
jmcnrick

lol
9:09 am
hootowl

Haz I don't remember you getting in on that fray. It was mostly my fault cause I have a million things to d and running out of time.
9:09 am
harpjane

i just barely remember a fray; I'm always glad when there's a controversy that doesn't involve ME!
9:09 am
Haz1558

Hootowl, I kind of did my 'Hold on a minute' and then ducked for cover.
9:10 am
jmcnrick

*giggle* me too harp
9:10 am

but if i see one the horizon I try to turn the topic
9:10 am
hootowl

I am very, very tired of people making accusations with nothing to back them up but their Personal feelings.
9:10 am
Haz1558

Anyway, I knew you were annoyed and wanted to say sorry if I stirred things.
9:11 am
hootowl

No - I was annoyed at life at that point Just pushed me over the edge.
9:12 am
Haz1558

I have a lovely lavender plant in my livingroom.
9:14 am
Haz1558

Excellent, jmc, I knew I could rely on you.
9:15 am
hootowl

Harp - here it's a stove the landlord doesn't think I need cause she doesn't cook, no insulation in the house, a fridge that freezes everything in the back or veg crisper, outside laundry.........
9:17 am
hootowl

It all seems to magnify during the holidays.
9:17 am

oh haz, here's another star wars lesson opportunity
9:37 am
hurshy

quote from yoda: "you must un7 what you have le5ed"
9:37 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, TO.
9:38 am
Haz1558

Am I still on foundation level, hurshy? I like to think I have progressed a little.
9:39 am
hurshy

i wouldn't take it upon myself to say - but i wouldn't consider knowing an actual quote to be foundation level, it's definitely higher.
9:39 am
hurshy

so, if, for instance, you were to use that quote as a clue later in the day, people might take you for an actual fan
9:39 am
harpjane

lol one grey tile (the U)
9:39 am
Haz1558

Excellent. I'll be sure to store it in the memory banks.
9:40 am
Haz1558

I don't know whether I'd want to be taken as a fan. False pretences and all that. I've never actually watched any of the films.
9:40 am
hurshy

you know there IS a way to alter that situation
9:41 am
Haz1558

I know, but I just don't think I could face it. Funny wee people with odd names....
9:41 am

mooner is a word, at least in MY family
9:41 am

did you not like the wizard of oz then?
9:42 am

Confession. I've never watched the WIzard of Oz the whole way through either.

9:44 am
harpjane

clue for the ra 8-9?
9:44 am
Haz1558

Oh, I can talk Anne okay, I know about the race of Joseph and the White Way of Delight.
9:45 am
Haz1558

ra8 and ra9 come from ra6 - which runs together a rodent and the end of animation after car.
9:45 am
hurshy

yes but what i mean is, you, like marilla, are not into fanciful things like anne is. not liking funny wee people. and perhaps, like marilla, you also are not subject to great extremes of emotional disturbance.
9:46 am
harpjane

thanks haz
9:46 am
Haz1558

No, I'm pretty much on an even keel. I took a quiz to test my emotional responses etc and I'm pretty buttoned up according to the results.
9:46 am
Haz1558

People tell me I look very calm all the time.
9:46 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, harpjane.
9:46 am

yep, see, it all fits. you're marilla.
9:46 am

Fair enough, I'm Marilla. But not as completely buttoned up as she was.

how funny
9:53 am
Haz1558

Dear me. There's a new approach. Are you going to have a four letter frenzy at the end?
9:53 am

i doubt if i will, haz, because IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY at the beginning....
9:54 am

bbl

There are 3.
9:58 am
72 Temple Owl

does it end with the he sheep?

then my feeling is wrong
9:59 am
72 Temple Owl

or more precisely the unit of weight?

The Royal Russian family name, I should have said.
10:04 am

Are you listing words that are almost in the grid?
10:05 am

haz, show off your quote for ata
10:05 am
Haz1558

I'm not sure what we're doing. ro6/21 is one letter shy of being the Russian dynasty.

Just explain to the officers that it's part of your campaign to amuse the masses, Haz. Then quote some Star Trek or Star Wars and I'm sure they'll be understanding.
10:13 am

Not.
10:13 am

"play it, sam", was, i believe, however.

10:28 am
72 Temple Owl

10:30 am
Haz1558

Ah! THE Queen, the others don't quite count.
10:30 am

10:30 am
Haz1558

Feeling better for knowing that.
10:31 am
72 Temple Owl

10:31 am

Haz1558

Who's Ra4/6 Omar?
10:33 am
Haz1558

Or is that just a name in my head?
10:33 am
Atalante

TV presenter I think
10:33 am
Haz1558

See, hurshy, if you moved out all the Star Trek and star Wars stuff from your memory, you'd have loads of room for new facts.
10:33 am
Atalante

Watchdog? maybe? I definitely recognise the name
10:33 am
Haz1558

You're right, Ata. I do think he writes poetry as well. Bound to. I claim the prize.

10:34 am
Atalante

omar khayyam! omar?
10:34 am
Haz1558

Four letters correct.
10:35 am
Haz1558

Omar Shariff in his younger days would have inspired poetry.
10:35 am
Vicuna

I'll give you a poet:
There once was a Babbler named T Owl
Who brought in some brandy most foul.
But no one would drink it
- No, don't even think it -
And poor TO started to howl.
10:35 am
hurshy

we are in bad shape in my house. i'm sick, husband is stressed writing end of semester papers, and microsoft just crashed on him, he lost some work, and he's very mad. meanwhile we have no food in the house.
10:35 am
Haz1558

Excellent!
10:36 am
72 Temple Owl

ooh i watched Zhivago yesterday and thought the same! those liquid eyes!
10:36 am
Atalante

wonderful, Vi!
10:36 am
Vicuna

When I have liquid eyes everyone just says "Quit crying."
10:36 am
Atalante

how is husband health-wise, hurshy?
10:36 am
hurshy

and now he has to go have his consultation with the kidney specialist about the small mass he has.
10:36 am
Haz1558

He was something else, wasn't he, TO? He's still alive but doesn't act any more, I don't think.
10:37 am
Vicuna

Oh dear. Sending supportive vibes to hurshy's house.
10:37 am
hurshy

10:37 am
72 Temple Owl

10:37 am

10:37 am
Atalante

good luck :)
10:37 am
Haz1558

He plays something that involves lots of gambling, I know that much. Is it backgammon?
10:37 am
Atalante

bridge
10:38 am
hurshy

i suggested the getting of food on way home to husband but i don't know if he will do it
10:38 am
Haz1558

You're right, it's bridge.
10:38 am
Haz1558

I wonder if Jillibus and Flosey know him.
10:38 am
Haz1558

No wonder they're keen.
10:38 am
Vicuna

They probably gamble with him every Monday night.
10:39 am
Haz1558

It's very likely. They're holding out on us, trying to keep him to themselves.
10:39 am
72 Temple Owl

don't check wiki. you will be sad if you do. trust me.
10:39 am
Haz1558

Is there a picture of him looking a wreck?
10:39 am
Atalante

10:40 am
Atalante

10:41 am
Atalante

10:41 am
Haz1558

Hobbit?
10:42 am
hurshy

that's how i feel about andy griffith. but we have to know how he looked when he got old cause he kept acting.
10:42 am
Vicuna

It should scroll across the bottom of the computer screen at all times like the breaking nes on television.
10:42 am
Vicuna

Firebirds!
10:42 am
Atalante

I've never ever drawn Hobbit!
10:42 am
Atalante

so .... keep going Vi :)
10:42 am
Vicuna

But I'm afraid I was right about the spelling and therefore he isn't really there.
10:43 am
flosey

lol, just reading back in the chat - yes, Jilli and I have Omar snugged away safely here on SSI, we take turns as his bridge partner every Monday
10:43 am
Vicuna

(I didn't get firebirds, I was answering Ata's question.)
10:43 am
Haz1558

There's going to be a Diaghilev Exhibition at the V and A in September next year.

10:43 am
Haz1558

We knew it, flosey!
10:43 am
Vicuna

No? Did his mama call him "boopsie?"
10:43 am
flosey

10:44 am
Atalante

you're all hopeless. Igor Stravinsky

Uneaixoise

10:45 am
Vicuna

I even tried "igor" earlier. I was thinking of the igors in Discworld, though. lol
10:45 am

prokofiev wrote peter and the wolf
10:45 am
hurshy

10:45 am
72 Temple Owl

10:46 am
72 Temple Owl

can it ever be sergai?
10:46 am
Atalante

you just like showing off with longer names :)
10:46 am
Uneaixoise

You can ig6 that clue if you wish.
10:46 am
Vicuna

Wow, Haz. I'd be afraid to live in a txtspk. I'd always be bumping my head on all the sharp points.
10:46 am
Atalante

mine too, flosey
10:46 am
hurshy

it's a transliteration so it can kinda be anything that you can pronounce and recognize as the name.
10:47 am
Haz1558

No sharp corners in an ig4, probably one of the estate agent's selling features.
10:47 am
72 Temple Owl

ig ig ig ih io io
10:47 am
hurshy

it's only convention to spell it a certain way with our alphabet. and do we care about convention? (haz, don't answer that)
10:48 am
Haz1558

Not care about convention?
10:48 am
hurshy

there's an ih?
10:48 am
Vicuna

Not in an ig, but lots in a txtspk. You can't even say it without stabbing yourself.
10:48 am
Haz1558

What sort of revolutionary thoughts are you having?
10:48 am
hurshy

TO, there's an iL
10:48 am
Haz1558

Aha, thanks, for the ih, all.
10:49 am

10:49 am
hurshy

i am NOT doing well on the bottom E.
10:49 am
72 Temple Owl

for some reason i have begun wanting to spell that word with a middle i. getting se6
10:49 am
hurshy

it drives me SO crazy that they don't even provide an apostrophe for text messages (at least not on my phone).
10:49 am
Atalante

bottom E - think Salem witch trials
10:49 am
Vicuna

Well, you can hear with the bottom e.
10:50 am
hurshy

yeah, i got the moldy poison words and the hearing
10:50 am
hurshy

and therefore and sea birds
10:50 am
Vicuna

and the therefore
10:50 am
Atalante

the sea eagles?
10:50 am
hurshy

but that still leaves 4 which is 40% missing!
10:50 am
Haz1558

Therefore can be extended somewhat.
10:50 am
Vicuna

Oh well, then I think we've got all the same.
10:50 am
Vicuna

that's the mold, Haz?
10:51 am
hurshy

extended somewhat to the moldy poison haz?
10:51 am
Vicuna

But I don't have witch trials... *looking*
10:51 am
Haz1558

You mean the mould? Standards, I must stick up for standards.....
10:51 am
72 Temple Owl

or the natural lsd lf you are so inclined
10:51 am
Atalante

the mould = the witch trials words
10:51 am
hurshy

ata means that the witch trials may have been caused by the accusing girls having er5 poisoning
10:52 am
72 Temple Owl

which trials?
10:52 am
Vicuna

Nope, I mean mold. lol! Oh, really, Ata. Is that why people were feeling bewitched or something?
10:52 am
Atalante

which witch trials?
10:52 am
Haz1558

10:52 am
hurshy

oh, i have that one too
10:52 am
Atalante

the number of trials coincided with a certain amount of time after each batch of bread making
10:53 am
Haz1558

Salem trials as in The Crucible. Did anyone ever see 'Three Sovereigns for Sarah' based on the trials?
10:53 am

Hello, bojazz.

10:59 am
Haz1558

Hauls TO back here. What about that brandy?
11:00 am
hurshy

why don't you draw Ood instead
11:00 am
Haz1558

What is its destination?
11:00 am
Atalante

because I'm drawing Daleks :)
11:00 am
72 Temple Owl

good thing you are not a dune fan. you would be drawing sand worms.
11:01 am
hurshy

i could draw that huge beastie from torchwood that they were using as a never ending supply of meat, that one is easy enough for me
11:01 am
Atalante

even I could draw him :)
11:01 am
Atalante

sand worms are fun to draw
11:01 am
Haz1558

I'm a fan of Dune the perfume but that sounds horrible, TO.
11:01 am

which aliens freak you out most, ata?
11:01 am
Haz1558

Frenchmen.
11:01 am
hurshy

lol
11:01 am
Atalante

of any sci-fi series? or torchwood?
11:02 am
Atalante

Sicilians are quite scary
11:02 am
hurshy

any series
11:02 am
72 Temple Owl

i think they are rather phallic. to be polite. sandworms not frenchmen.
11:02 am
Atalante

sandworms certainly are!
11:02 am
hurshy

i think it applies equally, TO
11:02 am
hurshy

no wait that's gallic. sorry. ;)
11:02 am
72 Temple Owl

esp in the crummy dune movie.
11:02 am
Atalante

hmmmmm
11:03 am
Haz1558

It sounds as though I shouldn't put Dune on my list of films to see.
11:03 am
72 Temple Owl

read the books. not so much fantasy as speculative science.
11:04 am
Atalante

it's got Kyle McLachlan in leather. That alone makes it worth seeing
11:04 am
Haz1558

Oh, give me a history book any time, better to have a bit of truth about what happened than a lot of speculation about the future.
11:05 am
72 Temple Owl

well yes there's that. but please - let.s agree not to wiki him. wiki is downright scary.
11:05 am
72 Temple Owl

these fellows are not aging like cary grant for sure.
11:05 am

So, we add Kyle McLachlan to the running transcript?
11:06 am

Captain Kirk is another one.

Peter Mandelson.

William Shatner, the very one.

I really don't know! Peter Mandelson is certainly the scariest thing on this planet
11:07 am
72 Temple Owl

who is peter mandelson?
11:07 am
Haz1558

Peter Mandelson is a creepy British politician.
11:08 am

11:08 am

well i get unreasonably freaked by the weeping angels and now have an irrational fear of all statuary. even though i try to remind myself that all they do is send you back in time which isn't so bad.

11:08 am
72 Temple Owl

imdb has this mini bio of kyle: The "boy next door, if that boy spent lots of time alone in the basement" he is a bit creepy.
11:08 am
hurshy

oh, he's your buddy cianci!
11:08 am

this is why ding ding ding is safer, haz, it can blanket all the correct answer getters

"If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you oughtta go back home and crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross; but it's not for the timid."

I knew a man once who made the mistake of going golfing while wearing an aran sweater. It began to rain, but he had paid so much for the round that he pressed on. by the time he finished, the sweater had retained so much water that it was round his knees.
