she was upset that lickety hasn't been around and the game is too hard for her without a list. I get that many people who play are disadvantaged by not having English as a first language
1:10 am
rururocks

Like our Last president as an example
1:10 am
VolleymomDee

never even thot of that ru
1:10 am
Aloyisius

lol, ruru..
1:11 am
Aloyisius

I empathize too... takes me longer without Lickety as it really helps to know the relative position of the word/words you are missing
1:11 am
dart001

has to realize that lickety does it out of the goodness of his heart....365 days a year is a lot to commit to in my book
1:11 am
rururocks

so she said she wasn't going to play much now that it was imporssible to finish.
1:11 am
VolleymomDee

totally agree dart
1:12 am
dart001

no rule that you can't play for fun and you dont have to finish to have fun
1:12 am
VolleymomDee

so many folks are so generous about sharing, if you either copy the lists or write them down, usually all of the information is in the chat
1:12 am
Atalante

one doesn't have to finish
1:12 am
rururocks

Oh.. I agree Dart...and many great players like ARb and hursh and others put a list in Babanon..but she seemed frustrated today
1:12 am
Aloyisius

I agree, dart... and if finishing is more important than the pleasure of finding words, I wouldn't play either
1:13 am
Aloyisius

but I enjoy the hunt (-:
1:13 am
VolleymomDee

you do have to approach it logically to finish without lickety; and I couldn't finish without everyone's help with my missing ones
1:13 am
rururocks

me too..
1:13 am

does lickety do it with a computer program? How does he figure it out so fast?

it would go well with your roast too

10:25 am
oodleberry

when you have rug rats all day or the house isn't quiet most of the time, yes scrabbler but I would trade it with people I love any day. and no I don't have friends because the quebeckers are very difficult people to break in there circle of friends and family so I do mostly everything by myself... but I am still hopeful

11:04 am
Atalante

we had to go down to see my gran, who is going slightly dotty. so off we went, husband decided he didn't want to spend time with gran cos it's utterly boring (which it is) so he and my step-father staying at a nearby aunt's house, eating yummy food and reading and stuff. Mum and I went to gran's for 3 hours. then we all hung around a bit and then came home
11:04 am
jmcnrick

what? no she isn't but she wasn't the trouble trif it was the gf of my nephew and her apparent bf
11:04 am
Atalante

apparently I left him alone all day and he refuses to accept such a thing again
11:04 am
Trifioso

oops, sorry - I think I misread who the culprit was...
11:04 am
rubyfoo

sounds familiar
11:04 am
jmcnrick

matter of fact my nephew was going aroudn saying sorry about the drama and I thought of you Trif ;-)
11:05 am
Trifioso

11:05 am

11:06 am
Sally-catlover

Well, Ata, if he has such an Important Job, why can't he manage to entertain himself or even be civil to your family for a few hours? Big men don't need their hand held, surely?
11:06 am
Atalante

he refuses to spend time with my family, my step-father dared to cook him something for lunch that would have been better as a breakfast, etc etc
11:06 am
jmcnrick

I am so glad i taught my son that sometime you do things that are uterly boring because of familiy

11:10 am
Atalante

his mother died a few years ago, and thus he didn't get his normal daily "I love you you're wonderful pet pet pet pet" mothering. And then he got The Important Job
11:10 am
Sally-catlover

Sometimes apparent arrogance is a mask for insecurity underneath, isn't it.
11:10 am
Atalante

absolutely, but I can't help him if he refuses to talk to me
11:11 am
72 Temple Owl

when my mil dies it set in motion all the events that led to the demise of my marriage. hi all
11:11 am
Sally-catlover

No you can't, and shouldn't have to. He isn't a child any more (I assume!)
11:11 am
Atalante

its going to be the same here, TO
11:12 am
Atalante

and hi! *hug*
11:12 am
Atalante

he's 40!
11:12 am
Sally-catlover

Perhaps you should go around the house singing, "Time for a Change".
11:13 am
72 Temple Owl

thye bottle it all up and there are all sorts of coping behaviors
11:13 am
Atalante

*snerk*
11:14 am
Sally-catlover

Husband No 1 thoiught he could treat me like dirt, then when I finally said I was leaving, bombared me with flowers, etc, etc. He married again and treated his second wife just the same.
11:14 am
72 Temple Owl

of course, it was my reactive behavior to what i did not understand that contributed mightily
11:15 am
Sally-catlover

Sorry, my typing is rubbish at the moment, but you know what I mean.
11:15 am
jan

And fireworks...I will hang on a littele bit for clues if any are needed, then will haul myslef out of bed to make brunch.
11:17 am
cybernan

un 7?
11:18 am
Atalante

11:18 am
72 Temple Owl

One piece gynnastic costume
11:18 am
jan

Oops not fast enough
11:19 am
Sally-catlover

I used to say it was like a piece of elastic. You can stretch it again and again and it will go back, but in the end it can't be put back together, like elastic when it snaps.
11:20 am
jmcnrick

hi all
11:20 am
jmcnrick

whoo hoo jan!
11:20 am
Sally-catlover

It isn't easy, Ata. But I still thought it was better to be on my own and poor than very very unhappy.
11:20 am
cybernan

ra 7?
11:21 am
cybernan

have the "doles out" one
11:21 am
Atalante

yep. I used to worry that my mother would be horribly cross about it ending, but now, if I accidentally tell her what he said about my step-father etc etc, she might see my side of things!
11:21 am
Sally-catlover

9Wasn't completely on my own to be fair. Hand young son.)
11:21 am
Sally-catlover

lol Ata. I just said I would not discuss it with them, ever. And I didn't!
11:22 am
Sally-catlover

RA &: Start with kind of weather common in UK, then opposite of in.
11:22 am
jmcnrick

well ata grief does take quite a while to work through
11:23 am
cybernan

ty sally
11:23 am
jmcnrick

losing your mother is hard especially when you are as young as he is
11:23 am
cybernan

15 to go -- think I need a break
11:23 am
jmcnrick

this was my first christmas without mine which was really hard on my sisters (all three)
11:24 am
jmcnrick

the first several christmases after my husband died were terrible
11:24 am
jmcnrick

bye cyber
11:25 am
Atalante

oh gosh, yes. but he doesn't think her dying to be a big deal, when it clearly is looking at it from the outside
11:25 am
jmcnrick

well some of us are not too good at expressing our feelings no matter what the television says we should do
11:25 am
jmcnrick

*looks in mirror*
11:26 am
jmcnrick

my husband was instrumental in me being as open as i am and I confess it's not that open
11:26 am
Atalante

ditto!
11:27 am
jmcnrick

what i have learned to do (which I was never good at at all before hubby) is to say I am sorry -- and the reality is that most people who are in important positions are the last ones who are will to do that
11:28 am
jmcnrick

i always thought it made me vulnerable to attacke
11:28 am
jmcnrick

now i know different
11:28 am
Atalante

everything is, of course, my fault
11:29 am
jmcnrick

so what i do when someone like -- oh i don't know -- my son is being a jerk is give him time to cool down and then give him a hug and say I am sorry we were disagreeing but i love him any way
11:29 am
jmcnrick

no you don't have to take the blame but you can express regret for the tension
11:30 am
jmcnrick

in fact you shouldn't take the blame
11:30 am
72 Temple Owl

ata it is hard to admit fault in some they are insecure and sometimes the way we treat those we love conributes to that at least in my case
11:30 am
Atalante

oh! he's home. well I wonder where he's been
11:30 am
Sally-catlover

But it's difficult if the other person won't talk about it, jmc
11:30 am
jmcnrick

TO i love your icon
11:30 am
cybernan

is there a list posted somewhere?
11:30 am
72 Temple Owl

it did. he did not feel he wa good enough and i made hi feel less so
11:30 am
jmcnrick

i know sally but that doesn't mean we have to give up
11:30 am
jmcnrick

we just need to take a different tact
11:31 am
Atalante

but when do you say "this isn't going to work"
11:31 am
jmcnrick

i wonder sometimes how it would have turned out if my hubby had lived past 40 -- would we have fought and broken up later?
11:31 am
72 Temple Owl

must go, dad is bothered by my "just sitting " here and we have no plans for lunch or dinner.
11:32 am
72 Temple Owl

ata get help who is not your friend
11:32 am
jmcnrick

bye TO have a good day! lots of love as my mil says
11:32 am

Cybernan, not sure about lists but in the chat log around 1 am there are some mini lists by letter that were helpful.
11:32 am
72 Temple Owl

counseling.
11:33 am
Sally-catlover

You'll know in your heart Ata. If you want to make it work, you will find a way. I used to worry about the practical things - how would we divide the cutlery! Then it just didn't matter any more.
11:33 am
jmcnrick

I would suggest counseling as an option but find a counselor who is committed to helping stay together
11:33 am
Sally-catlover

And I agree, consider counselling if you care.
11:33 am
72 Temple Owl

oh bother it is going to be a day...feeling ill and guy i met is getting me all confused
11:33 am
Atalante

he'd never go LOL. he doesn't have time! he has an Importnt Job!
11:33 am
Sally-catlover

A marriage break-up is NOT an easy option.
11:34 am

sally that is exactly right when you no longer care how the mechanics will work is a good sign
11:34 am

11:34 am
72 Temple Owl

yes je that is what i mean - not some womens' rights type of someone who feels you must stay at all costs - one who is impartial
11:34 am
jmcnrick

so go with out him -- counselers can often give help with tools to improve things
11:34 am
72 Temple Owl

but YOU can go without him
11:35 am
jmcnrick

exactly or one who feels you should leave at the drop of a harsh word
11:35 am
72 Temple Owl

yes! thought mine after he went once with me compolained it was MY doctor so would be on MY side. *shakes head* sad

From Wikipedia:

Boxing day was traditionally a day the servants had a day off from their duties. Because of this the gentry would eat cold cuts and have a buffet style feast prepared by the servants in advance. In modern times many families will still follow this tradition by eating a family style buffet lunch, with cold cuts rather than a full cooked meal. It is a time for family, parlour games and sports in the UK.

12:17 pm
helensgirlkid

That's the military - if they didn't do it on Christmas, Boxing Day is when the officers serve the enlisted dinner.
12:19 pm
helensgirlkid

At one time, this was the day that the well-to-do gave their servants gifts - if only a small cash bonus - in a box. I can;t work out whether this was supplementary to giving them a big party with the leftovers from the master's table or not.
12:20 pm

2:50 pm
Nancy Boy

I got everything I wanted when I moved in, JBV :) actually, Leo and I are worse than broke, so we were creative with presents this year. And yes, it was lovely :D
2:50 pm
JBV

creative is the best way - my favorite kind of Christmas, I am the one who writes poems, copies old photos, etc. I sometimes wonder if people think I'm cheap but the thought really does count
2:52 pm
Bugsaw

your kind of gifts are the ones people save JBV
2:52 pm
Nancy Boy

that it does, exactly. Also risked a phone call to mum's mobile so got a few minutes to check in with her and my little sister, which was the best present
2:52 pm
JBV

oh, good, NB - I'm sure things will get better with time, be patient with the old folks.....
2:53 pm
JBV

thanks, bugsaw, I hope you're right - my sister and brother and I are very sentimental, we were raised by loving parents, so we love to share reminiscences and such
2:53 pm
Nancy Boy

Patience is SO not my strong point, but I'm trying my best :) but yes, I agree; something you've cared for has more value than something flashy
2:54 pm
hego

Hi All
2:54 pm
JBV

here's a christmas story from a few years ago: my sister reupholstered my dad's old armchair, made it like new........
2:55 pm
JBV
