hi, jilli, lynxxx and all!
2:36 am
justafreep

what a bizarrely "mirrored" type of grid!
2:37 am
jillibus

yes indeed!
2:38 am
rubyfoo

I was thinking that, freep
2:39 am
gremlinn

yeah, earlier I figured that's why a board with good letters has so few words
2:39 am
justafreep

there are two rows that are palindromes, so to speak, and one more that's just one off. Wild.
2:39 am
justafreep

makes sense, gremlinn
2:40 am
jillibus

If anyone cares, my icon is a clue
2:40 am
jillibus

and has some info
2:40 am
gremlinn

ah, that's what that word means
2:41 am
jillibus

yep
2:42 am
rubyfoo

ty jilli, that was very helpful
2:45 am

This grid makes me dizzy.
2:47 am

Hi everyone!
3:44 am
Haz1558

Hello, Brookie.
3:44 am
Brookie

Hi Haz. How have you been doing?
3:44 am
Haz1558

Fine, thanks. You're up early, though, is that a sign of activity with the children?
3:45 am
Brookie

My youngest one is up, but I won't get him out of his crib till 5 a.m.
3:45 am
rubyfoo

hello haz and brookie
3:45 am
Brookie

My older one is still sleeping, thankfully!
3:46 am
Brookie

Hi ruby!
3:46 am
Haz1558

Fair enough, 5 am sounds plenty early to me! Hello, ruby.
3:46 am
Brookie

5 a.m. is ok with me. I'm a morning person.
3:46 am
rubyfoo

just sleeping 'til 8 is a luxury with a husband who awakens with the birds!!!
3:47 am
rubyfoo

and makes a lot of noise
3:47 am
Brookie

What time do you normally get up, ruby?
3:47 am
Haz1558

We're a family of night owls.
3:47 am
rubyfoo

I ake up earlier but put a pillow over my head 'til 8
3:48 am
Brookie

as long as your entire family subscribes to the same sleep schedule, it's ok.
3:48 am
rubyfoo

I try to sleep 8 hrs, otherwise I'm useless (actaully pretty useless anyway lol)
3:48 am
Brookie

maybe you could invest in earplugs, ruby?
3:48 am
Atalante

I got up horribly late this morning
3:48 am
rubyfoo

or a gun! lol
3:49 am
Haz1558

Good morning, Ata, what was your excuse?
3:49 am
Brookie

Hello ata!
3:49 am
rubyfoo

hello ata
3:49 am
Atalante

tired LOL
3:49 am
Brookie

ear plugs, guns, all give you the same result!
3:53 am
Atalante

not quite sure what the chiro did to me yesterday, but it obviously needed a good sleep afterwards!
3:53 am
Haz1558

Was there much clicking and groaning involved? I've never had a chiropracter, physiotherapy has been my limit.
3:54 am
Atalante

yep! and screeching and stuff
3:55 am
Atalante

they are utterly wonderful, but you can tend to feel like you've been beaten up
3:55 am
Haz1558

But did you get a sticker afterwards to say how brave you were?
3:55 am
Brookie

or a lollipop?
3:55 am
Atalante

no! she just said that I was so used to such things that she did more than normal for a session. LOL. great!
3:55 am
Haz1558

The thing abut physios etc is that they can seem to discover more pain than you knew you had. I don't know whether it's a good thing or not.
3:56 am
Haz1558

Well, that sounds like a compliment to me, I'd make my own sticker.
3:56 am
Atalante

that's exactly what I wrote on my FB: the only place you come out with more painful spots than you have going in
3:57 am
Haz1558

They must all be taught it in whatever school they go to. 'Aim for pain'.
3:57 am
Atalante

apparently my shoulder hurts a lot. who knew?!
3:57 am
Brookie

gotta go now. Try to make the rest of your day pain free!
3:57 am
rubyfoo

that's scary!
3:58 am
Haz1558

Bye Brookie, have a good day.

bye brookie!

But having said all that, somehow all that manipulation and pulling about does seem to work. Not instantly but eventually.

hello lady

oh it does, definitely. Chiropractors are wonderful people
4:00 am
herinfernallady

Hello lovelies. I have a new short hair do and a slight case of razor burn
4:00 am
Haz1558

It's a nice grid today, ruby, although quite a few babble type words included.
4:01 am
rubyfoo

I really enjoy that first moment of looking at a new grid, big morning treat for me!
4:01 am
rubyfoo

and seeing what nice folks are in the chat! and, of course, doing a little bottom-feeding
4:02 am
Haz1558

It's still a treat for me, ruby, it's the surprise of not knowing how many words, what the grid's going to look like, etc.
4:02 am
Haz1558

Nasty expression! You're gleaning help!
4:03 am
rubyfoo

sorry, but I feel like a cheater!
4:03 am
herinfernallady

o and new perfume
4:03 am
Haz1558

You're not cheating! Everyone helps each other. Cut that out of babble and the charm of the game goes.
4:03 am
FMitch

It's utilising all resources ruby :)
Morning/evening all.
4:04 am
rubyfoo

hello fm
4:04 am
Haz1558

I don't ask for clues but I use all other resources I can, and I refuse to see it as cheating.
4:04 am
rubyfoo

what perfume, herin?
4:04 am
rubyfoo

in the evening, I ask for clues
4:04 am
herinfernallady

It is called The Coil. It is by Black Phoenix ALchemy Lab
4:04 am
FMitch

herin, how much hair got the chop?
4:04 am
Haz1558

ruby, you really don't think that old time babblers KNOW all these words?
4:05 am
rubyfoo

hahah
4:05 am
FMitch

of course we do Haz, don't blow the image!
4:05 am
rubyfoo

my hairdresser of many years imploded and I've been cutting my own and it looks like it!
4:06 am
Haz1558

Sorry! Okay, I'll rephrase that. Some special babblers know all the words, but not all. Is that better?
4:06 am
FMitch

:)
4:06 am
Atalante

better!

Atalante

raining here ...
4:07 am
herinfernallady

FM my hair is now under my ears
4:07 am
Haz1558

So, no more talk of cheating! Asking for clues is perfectly fine, we're only tipped over the edge if you asked for clues for three million at a time.
4:08 am
rubyfoo

but the days are fast growing so maybe spring will come after all
4:08 am
Haz1558

It's foggy here.
4:08 am
Atalante

Hobbit is grumbling cos in a fit of pique at the weather I refused to take her for a decent walk this morning
4:08 am
FMitch

wow you have gone short then herin!
4:08 am
rubyfoo

we had huge fog yesterday, both kinds, on the way to Geneva, and it was scary
4:08 am
Atalante

very stylish!
4:08 am
rubyfoo

especially with husband behind the wheel.....
4:08 am
herinfernallady

Yep. It is too bleeding hot here to have hair
4:09 am
FMitch

LOL
4:10 am
herinfernallady

Well I would post pics but I did kind of forget to tell the hair dresser no on short fringe. It looks very icky
4:11 am
herinfernallady

Ozone, eucalyptus and mint with purple orchid, passionflower, white ginger, and purple lotus. That is what the new perfume The Coil smells of
4:11 am
rubyfoo

sounds lovely; I didn't know passionflowers or orchids, for that matter, had scents
4:11 am
FMitch

mm that sounds lovely.
4:12 am
Haz1558

Ozone?
4:12 am

vanilla is an orchid :)

Haz1558

My sister has just e-mailed me this story. Let this be a lesson to all of us.
4:15 am
Haz1558

From Reader’s Digest – Kathy Lette’s:



I remember when the show (a US sitcom) needed a new boyfriend for one of the characters we cast this 24-year-old actor called George. He had big sideburns and was really dishy. He asked me out on a date but I said, “No, I’m a writer, I don’t do out with actors.” Years later one of the show’s co-writers was staying with me and we had ER on in the background. I said, “Look at that divine Dr Ross!” My friend said, “But that’s George Clooney, the guy we cast in the show. He’s the one you refused a date with.”

I screamed and cried and lay in the foetal position for some time. I wondered if I could just call him and say, “George, about that date . . . “

Now I tell my friends I’m obviously the reason he’s never married!





4:15 am
herinfernallady

Ozone smells electric. Like that smell of sparks. Its a smell I like
4:15 am
herinfernallady

Hi Lynxx

Isn't it amazing? Tak about kicking yourself.
4:18 am
herinfernallady

See that is what happens when you don't take a risk
4:19 am

4:25 am
lynxxx

4:25 am
Atalante

yep, I've been reading his blog and stuff for ever
4:25 am
herinfernallady

I had to close the site there was a risk of too much drool
4:26 am
Atalante

4:26 am
Haz1558

The Americans think so, lynxxx.
4:26 am
Haz1558

Can you hear the sniffs of disapproval?
4:26 am
Atalante

I have great fun when editing best friend's manuscripts crossing out every "gotten" just to annoy her
4:26 am
herinfernallady

The books are amazing. THe limited edition Ansai Boys and American Gods is just woo.
4:26 am
lynxxx

so I should have said - she has got around?
4:27 am
Haz1558

I suppose either got around or has been around.
4:27 am

4:30 am

no, not at all Infernal - rather admire her actually, funny girl. And her 1st husband is pretty dishy
4:30 am
herinfernallady

Ok sorry my missinterruptation
4:32 am
Haz1558

To think that her first husband could have been George Clooney! If only she hadn't been so hung up on being a writer.
4:34 am
herinfernallady

Well I think anyone would be kicking themselves about it
4:34 am
lynxxx

mmmm Geoffrey Robertson/George Clooney - bit of a toss up

Hi, Une. HI have been babbling every day bur havent seen any of you lot when I've been here. Great bunch of old friends today!
4:37 am

With the emphasis on the friends rather than the old.
4:37 am
Uneaixoise

hey, herin et al! ok, back to Rafa in Melbourne! *poof*
4:37 am

Inge is worried that you haven't been on babble for EVER Haz
4:38 am
Haz1558

But I'm here just about every day!
4:38 am
herinfernallady

4:38 am
Atalante

but yu're not here when she is! therefore you're Not Here!
4:38 am
hydra

Oops. No 'old offence intended! I'm the oldest oldie here!
4:38 am
Haz1558

I think I've spoken to inge not that long ago, she mustn't have remembered.
4:39 am
Haz1558

Was she worried? Did she fear that George had taken me off to a new life in Hollywood?
4:40 am
herinfernallady

I make a promise once my fringe is at a level that I want to be photographed at I will do it.
4:41 am
Atalante

I guess so!
4:41 am
Atalante

Betty Page length fringes are very trendy
4:42 am
hydra

I'm waiting for mine to reach my chest before I'll let myself be photographed. Just had some new passport pics taken and they were unspeakably ghastly. White face, blotchy cheeks, wrinkles, stringy hair... looked like an extra from True Blood!
4:42 am
Haz1558

She only needed to check back in the chat log to see that that particular dream hasn't been fulfilled up to now.
4:42 am
Haz1558

But it's the new law, hydra, you have to look as ghastly as possible.
4:43 am
Haz1558

They have special cameras to make you look bad.
4:43 am
Atalante

that's *very8 trendy, Hydra LOL
4:43 am
Haz1558

It doesn't matter what the mirror says before you go in, the camera wrecks everything.
4:43 am
hydra

Oh, so that's it. I'd better scan one and show you! This will take a while and involve another computer,so talk amongst yourselves...
4:44 am
Atalante

I bet even Kate Moss's passport pic makes her look like a washed-out junkie. Oh, wait ....
4:44 am
herinfernallady

Ata its toooooooo short. It is above the eye brow first wrinkle. And Hydra you have to just realise passport and Identification have to be hideous. My school photo makes me look like a very pissed off prison woman
4:44 am
Haz1558

And imagine either Amy Winehouse or Pete Doherty's passport photos!
4:44 am
herinfernallady

O dear gosh no
4:44 am
Haz1558

Husband's gun permit photo makes him look like something on a wanted poster.
4:45 am
sandbox74

wouldn't it be scarier if he had a gun crazy grin on the id?
4:46 am
Atalante

smiling is illegal
4:46 am
herinfernallady

My B.f lost his old drivers licence this was the phases: Stoner, thug, drug dealer.
4:46 am
Haz1558

He has a nice smile! He could smile it and look benign.
4:47 am
Atalante

but a lot of things, you're not allowed to smile for cos it distorts your face
4:48 am
Haz1558

That's certainly true of Gordon Brown, his smile IS disturbing.
4:48 am
Atalante

his non-smile is disturbing too
4:48 am
Atalante

Peter Mandelson's smile is definitely disturbing
4:48 am
Haz1558

And that jaw dropping thing he does.
4:49 am
herinfernallady

Isn't Gordon Brown just plan old disturbing?
4:49 am
Atalante

the only one that ever smiles as if he means it is Boris Johnson
4:50 am
Haz1558

I know!
4:51 am
Haz1558

Hydra said to talk amongst ourselves, but it is taking a while.
4:51 am

Brace yourselves.. Here is the passport pic (pass the sickbags round, somebody!)

Here we go!

Could it be worse? I don't think so!

4:52 am

Well done, Mudd.

You're like me, you tilt your head a little to the right.
4:53 am

Er herin, do your eyes need testing??? I thought I looked like a raddled old hooker!

Yes, Haz, I do. My chiropractor is always telling me to straighten up, yet it feels straight to me.

I have had tooo much cofffee and am giggling like an idiot
4:54 am
Haz1558

That's the problem with photos, you know how you want to look in them, but you can't fight with the passport camera. It's deliberately set at 'slightly disappointing' ranging to 'unrecognisable'.
4:55 am
sandbox74

i think it's the white background that makes everything look stark and unflattering
4:56 am
sandbox74

rent
4:56 am
sandbox74

oops
4:56 am
hydra

I might find a photo booth and have another go. This was done in a corner of the local chemist's shop. They tug a blind down and point a special camera at you, that then regurgitates four copies. I asked for another go but they asked for another £4!
4:56 am
Haz1558

Well, all you can do is to go to someone and get a full make-up and hairdo done and then bribe the photo operator to set the camera to 'just about acceptable to the majority of the public'
4:56 am
hydra

Hi sand
4:56 am
sandbox74

sorry

Those excel spreadsheets are more dangerous than I realised.

My fave was the 1970 one where I was a big fur collar up round my face and looked like a movie star. (Well, I thought so...)
4:58 am
FMitch

I have to get passport pics done for passport renewal and driving licence *sigh*
4:59 am
Haz1558

Get that hairdo and make-up session set up, FM.
5:00 am
FMitch

Any photo I have taken now will look a million times better than the existing passport pic believe me.
5:00 am
Haz1558

I was going to make some remark about the restorative power of millions now that you've won the lottery, but I won't.
5:01 am

good
5:01 am
Haz1558

No place for rumours on the babble chat log. No, facts only.
5:01 am

My existing one is a nice, smiley one. Roll on my lottery win! I won £15 on Euromillions last week. Methinks they left some noughts off.
5:01 am
Haz1558

Have you had many begging letters?
5:02 am
FMitch

only from you and Ata.
5:02 am
Haz1558

A question for both Hydra and FM!
5:02 am
Haz1558

Well, if you can't help your friends....
5:02 am

Ha ha! Boyfriend held his hand of for a share of the supermarket bill. which came to far more than £15.
5:03 am
hydra

Must poof now. Some work to finish. See you later *
5:03 am
FMitch

Bye hydra
5:04 am
Haz1558

It's funny, my daughter was complaining that she can never go into a supermarket without spending at least £15. A bottle of milk and a loaf of bread 'That'll be £15'. Some cornflakes and washing powder 'That'll be £15'.
5:04 am
Haz1558

Bye hydra.
5:04 am

*sigh* hydra said the w word *tries to ignore it*

I suspect she has more in her basket than she lets on. My daughter is the original impulse shopper.
5:04 am
FMitch

lol that is true Haz, mine is £13
5:05 am
FMitch

what ever I go out to buy the bill is normally about £13.
5:05 am
Haz1558

I often manage with 50p. The price of a paper. Let me be an inspiration.
5:06 am
Haz1558

Okay, I must be off. No 1 daughter is attending a wedding today and I must pay due attention to the wonderment of the outfit etc. Bye for now!

5:23 am
JBsAnno

Good morning, Aussies and Brits from across the pond
5:23 am
Atalante

strangely enough, my real favourite tea at the moment comes from Nepal. But I really like Kenyan too
5:24 am
lawyer-1

I am just as much across the pond as thee
5:24 am
JBsAnno

I'm not fond of the roobios (sp?), lawyer, not to my taste
5:24 am
JBsAnno

And where art thou, fair lawyer?
5:24 am
lawyer-1

Every morning, I have a cup of Roibos
5:24 am
Atalante

rooibos is very very different. it's a really love or hate thing
5:25 am
JBsAnno

Hi, FMitch, Atalante!
5:25 am
JBsAnno

I love to hate rooibos?
5:25 am
lawyer-1

A tad below the Mason=Dixon line

JBsAnno

LOL, Ata, this is silly me, before coffee!
5:26 am
Atalante

5:27 am
JBsAnno

Hmm, but my co-workers would probably tell you I get worse AFTER coffee - a solid 3 cups in my coffee mug every morning
5:27 am
jmcnrick

5:27 am
FMitch

Hi jmc
5:27 am
JBsAnno

JBsAnno

Hi, jmc!
5:28 am
jmcnrick

5:28 am
JBsAnno

Lawyer, are you new here? Haven't see you in the mornings before
5:28 am
lawyer-1

coffee is like drinking hot water out of an ashtray
5:28 am
Atalante

*giggles quietly and says nothing*
5:28 am
JBsAnno

mmm...fresh ground coffee, jmc, the best!
5:28 am
Atalante

ABSOLUTELY, lawyer!!!!
5:28 am
lawyer-1

5:29 am
JBsAnno

I refer you back to the cream and sugar part, lawyer!
5:29 am
FMitch

5:29 am
jmcnrick

5:29 am
lawyer-1

cream and sugar in an ashtray
5:29 am
JBsAnno

LOL, FM!
5:29 am
jmcnrick

5:29 am
lawyer-1

5:29 am
JBsAnno

*imagining a party at lawyer's place...*
5:30 am
jmcnrick

5:30 am

5:30 am
JBsAnno

I was a late bloomer, too, jmc, didn't start till my 30's
5:30 am
jmcnrick

my husband was a big coffee drinker
5:30 am
lawyer-1

eventually, I got smart
5:31 am
jmcnrick

so one day right after he died (a large part due to cigarettes) i came into my law office and my receptionist was crying
5:31 am
JBsAnno

Don't leave us hanging with that remark, lawyer, smart about what - smoking? Tea? Drinking out of ashtrays?
5:32 am
jmcnrick

i asked her what was the matter and she said that since my husband (and law partner) died she didn't haev anyone to make coffee for
5:32 am
lawyer-1

all of the above
5:32 am
Atalante

awwwwwwww
5:32 am

5:32 am
JBsAnno

5:33 am

5:33 am
FMitch

I drink coffe very rarely as the caffine really affects me.
5:33 am
jmcnrick

the good thing is that i inherited my grandfather's genes and i can drink coffee up to the minute before i go to bed
5:34 am
jmcnrick

i get all the good pep-me up stuff without the keep me awake at night stuff
5:34 am
JBsAnno

Totally going off on a different track - Ata, LOVE the Dr. Who art in your profile - what's the story of who/where/how it came to be?

5:34 am
Atalante

5:36 am
JBsAnno

Ata, you're okay with us talking about you right in front of you, right?
5:36 am
Atalante

5:37 am
Atalante

5:37 am

Sigh no more, ladies, sigh nor more;
Men were deceivers ever;
One foot in sea and one on shore,
To one thing constant never;
Then sigh not so,
But let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny;
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into. Hey nonny, nonny.

I suppose I always think of Japanese maples as being a kind of upper class tree. All that colour and delicacy and needing to be in the right place. They're very beautiful.
6:19 am
NonnieLight

tupli trees are beautiful too. I wish their huge blossoms stayed longer than they do.
6:20 am

6:38 am

not sure "taking care of sick grandbabies" was number one (two, three, twenty...) on her list, but she is willing, and so lovely, and this way I don't have to miss work. it's all good

i used not to be but then in my 50s i suddenly became one
7:22 am
redturtlehead

shopping must have been quick!
7:22 am
jmcnrick

problem is much of my life is based on the concept of my being an late night person
7:23 am
jmcnrick

it would have been quicker but my debit card didn't work (not quite enough money) so i had to go to the bank and more things around to pay for groceries
7:23 am
Good Enough

yeah, even though i don't like morning i do wake up same time each day even if i don't want to. but i love to lay in bed and read or watch tv!
7:25 am
redturtlehead

Oh no!
7:25 am
redturtlehead

Well, its horrid gray weather here, best for sleeping....
7:25 am
Good Enough

left side of this grid is funny. so many dupes
7:26 am
jmcnrick

oh well it worked out and i got my groceries
7:26 am
jmcnrick

i only live 3 blocks from the store and the bank is in the middle
7:27 am
redturtlehead

Excellent. I am just happy my Mom got home, and I think she will need 5 days to sleep.
7:27 am
Good Enough

and you should feel productive, and it's still early!
7:27 am
jmcnrick

poor thing did she have a good time with you?
7:28 am
jmcnrick

i do feel productive but now i want to go to bed and not work
7:28 am
redturtlehead

I think I over did things for her! but she seemed to have a good time.
7:28 am
jmcnrick

well she can rest now so not too bad if you overdid a bit
7:29 am
redturtlehead

Yes, I think she will be fine. She has 8 new gigs of Photos to edit out.
7:29 am
Good Enough

oh red i forgot you are in FL. i heard some tornado watches there this morning but don't know what area.
7:29 am
jmcnrick

she will enjoy that for sure!
7:29 am
redturtlehead

The weather was very bad this orning mostly heavy rain, seems to be passing off to the coast now.
7:30 am
jmcnrick

i want a g in this grid
7:30 am
Good Enough

good day to stay in and babble
7:31 am
redturtlehead

yes, I will be doing some of that, and a whole ot of trying to get organized again...pick up doggie and got to hospital for a bit of orientation.
7:31 am
jmcnrick

have you started yet?
7:31 am
jmcnrick

work that is
7:31 am
Good Enough

recovery day after home visit, of course.
7:32 am
redturtlehead

Monday, I do orientation, and start next week, I do need some recovery. My mom is quite different than I remembered her!
7:32 am
jmcnrick

really? how so?
7:32 am
Anniebrook

red, different, how?
7:32 am
Anniebrook

and hello to everyone!
7:33 am
jmcnrick

hi annie
7:33 am
Good Enough

morning annie
7:33 am
redturtlehead

Well, she has had recent Cataract and lens implant surgery, so her vision is not always great, plus, when she is in unfamiliar situations, her hearing problem (Deaf in one ear) becomes very apparent. She gets very tired quickly.
7:34 am
redturtlehead

When I visit her at home, I dont note any of this...but on this trip it was very apparant...
7:34 am
jmcnrick

*sigh* well age has a way of doing that
7:34 am
redturtlehead

Hi Annie!
7:34 am
Good Enough

those changes become so apparent when you aren't togethr everyday and then suddenly you are.
7:34 am
jmcnrick

at home you know everything so can function better too
7:35 am
Anniebrook

red, well, I can certainly identify with your Mom minus the cataract surgery (which is in my future)
7:35 am
redturtlehead

I had just seen her in November, so I was surprised, but she really doesn't navigate too well, out of her element.
7:35 am
Good Enough

i remember coming home from college and being astounded at the changes in my parents... and that was 25 years ago!
7:36 am
jmcnrick

sure those changes weren't in you good? ;-)
7:36 am
Good Enough

they are still living and aging well into their 80s
7:36 am
redturtlehead

I just had to be a little more patient, and she still navigates quite well, all over the beach with her Camera and tripod...
7:37 am
jmcnrick

lol red i always have to stand and wait for my son to take photos
7:37 am
Good Enough

at least she's still getting out and getting around red and there is seldom enough patience between children and parents...no matter the age
7:37 am
Anniebrook

Hearing loss is quite frustrating and embarassing. What? What? LOL
7:38 am
redturtlehead

It really is, she hears great out of her left ear, but nothing on the right. It did have its bonuses, she missed some hotel noise.
7:39 am
redturtlehead

I just have to remember to talk to the correct ear. otherwise she ignore me!
7:39 am
Anniebrook

red, that is not too much of a big deal or is it?
7:39 am
Good Enough

ok ladies, off to get ready for work. enjoy your day
7:40 am
jmcnrick

bye good
7:40 am
Anniebrook

bye, good
7:40 am
jmcnrick

lol my husband was quite deaf and he was young it was VERY frustrating
7:40 am
redturtlehead

For some people it isn't, but it totally bothers my Mother. She also hears a lot of low hums and vibrations from machines which aggravate her.
7:41 am
redturtlehead

plus very hard for her in resturaunts, hard to sort out background noise etc.'
7:42 am
Anniebrook

red, that can be upsetting. I just do not hear as well as I used to and that is upsetting to me but I learned to live with it.
7:44 am
redturtlehead

shes doing pretty well with it these days, I just try to remember to ask for "the quietest spot" and to have her sit on the right side.
7:45 am
redturtlehead

Ahhhh! I found my phone. Embedded in a pillow!
7:45 am
jmcnrick

yeah red!
7:45 am
Anniebrook

Hooooray for red!
7:49 am
redturtlehead

Is it just me, or is anyone else looking for an "ing" ending that isnt there?
7:49 am
Anniebrook

I was looking for the gerund too.
7:50 am
jmcnrick

you didn't see me earlier asking for a G in the grid?
7:50 am
redturtlehead

Must have been off looking through the bedclothes.
7:50 am
jmcnrick

all those in-s are begging for a G
7:50 am
Anniebrook

oh yes, I did, jmc

7:51 am
oodleberry

my neck needs a shave
7:51 am
oodleberry

7:53 am
jmcnrick

7:53 am
Anniebrook

and the river has a mouth
7:53 am
jmcnrick

and corn has an ear
7:54 am
Anniebrook

and potatoes can have eyes
7:54 am
jmcnrick

lakes can have fingers
7:55 am
Anniebrook

which makes me think of the beautiful NY area--The Finger Lakes
7:55 am
redturtlehead

Clever people!
7:56 am
jmcnrick

*looks clever for admiring crowd*
7:56 am
Anniebrook

I am borrowing a little *smug* from Atalante

Applauds for Annie, Oodle and jmcrick.
7:56 am
jmcnrick

if i am so clever why can't i get nbt? :-(
7:56 am
jmcnrick

lol annie
7:57 am
oodleberry

but I never hear of a potato using its eyes to see; a river using its mouth to eat or talk; or corn listening to what people had to say or a finger lake having a hand??? this is most confusing
7:57 am
redturtlehead

because of the E words!
7:57 am
jmcnrick

and the i words too red -- all i have is the thought

11:40 am
72 Temple Owl

11:40 am
Haz1558

I don't think it's common, one letter short of being Neptune's fork thing.
11:40 am
jmcnrick

i believe i learned the term from britich mystery tv shows
11:40 am
Atalante

that's perfectly sensible! stay and have a good time
11:41 am
rururocks

thank you again
11:41 am
jmcnrick

sounds like a good plan especially if they pay for the hotel
11:41 am
Atalante

I certainly grew up with the term
11:41 am
Haz1558

Skivvies, I know as kind of menial servants. Is there another meaning?
11:41 am

11:42 am
Atalante

I always like the different meanings for pants over here adn over there
11:42 am
jmcnrick

i am genuinely shocked haz
11:43 am
72 Temple Owl

i think of skivvies as mens boxers
11:43 am
Haz1558

A skivvy would be a kind of menial servant - the equivalent of Ruby, in Upstairs Downstairs.
11:43 am
jbp

is it related to skeevy?
11:44 am
Atalante

yes, the girls who were the more menial of servants
11:44 am
rururocks

(wishes I had menial servants instead of underwear)
11:44 am
jmcnrick

well then the use of the term for underwear is a bit ruder than i knew

Soodle, I just read your profile here or whatever it's called and it makes me wonder if you ever had a sex change operation since your 4 year old son calls you "Dad"
2:11 pm
Soodlebum

Ha ha, Lawyer. I merely copied and pasted an email that I found vaguely amusing. No sex change, and its been 15 years since I had a 4 year old son.
2:12 pm

I got a letter from the Dept of Education in Mass today, saying that due to Primo's high score on the state exams, he is now eligible for a special program for excellent students in Mass. He has two other requirements to complete before grad, in 2011, and, if he does, they will WAIVE HIS TUITION at a Mass public college or university. His first choice of colleges right now is Mass Art, so that would be PERFECT

"Mellow Yellow" is a song and single release by Donovan. It reached #2 on the Billboard charts in the U.S. in 1966.

The song was rumored to be about smoking dried banana skins, which was believed to be a hallucinogenic drug in the 1960s,
3:05 pm
Aloyisius
