old in age, or old in babble age?

the Telegraph cryptic crossword is the cryptic crossword for wimps and those that can't do the one in the Times. Which I why I do it!

There was an interesting programme on over Christmas time about crossword puzzles, how they began, how they're composed and about the people who set them. They explained all the sort of cryptic devices etc. Shame I didn't take notes!

4:09 am
rubyfoo

cold out, worse in the house.....
4:10 am
lynxxx

I am very well. I am assuming you haven't been (sad face)...the new medication isn't continuing to benefit you?
4:11 am
lynxxx

oh dear Ruby, we have anothere Babbler who calls her 'better' half Mr Grumpoy, perhaps you can adopt that name as well
4:11 am
lynxxx

Mr Grumpy
4:11 am
rubyfoo

how about mr. nasty
4:11 am
sprite

oh yes it is, lyn, it is just that bringing down the oxycodone and building up the gabapentine is a rotten combination. The side effects are truly bad. But I do have more feeling in my feet again. And for the first time in over 14 years less pain in the pelvic bone. So it is worth it.
4:11 am
rubyfoo

and he's defnitely my worser half!!
4:12 am
lynxxx

Sprite, sounds like you can at least get around a bit more - I hope so.
4:12 am
rubyfoo

lovely profile today, sprite
4:13 am
rubyfoo

I don't mean to be indiscreet, but what happened to you sprite? you are younger than my son!
4:14 am
sprite

yes I can, lyn, and I seem to be shaking off the severe depression that is a side effect of the gabathingus, so I can handle things a little better again.
Still must find a way to tackle the 'other' pain, which is not nerve related, but that is easier. I am again hopeful.
4:14 am
sprite

thanks rubyfoo! Ger means so much to us, it is wonderful to tell a bit about him.
4:16 am
sprite

the very short version, rubyfoo: PTSS from childhood trauma, pelvic instability from pregnancies, lost of feeling in feet.
4:16 am
rubyfoo

oh my, I'm so sorry
4:17 am
rubyfoo

from what group of drugs is gabapentine?
4:17 am
lynxxx

Sprite is one of babble's Elders, much loved and respected
4:17 am
sprite

don't be, we all carry our load and this seems to be mine. At this moment I am very happy to be allowed and able to stop using morphine.
4:17 am
rubyfoo

salaam!!!
4:18 am
sprite

elder in spirit, right lyn? :)
4:18 am
lynxxx

of course!
4:19 am
rubyfoo

I take a mild codeine every morning without which I'd be frozen -- back troubles but the drug lets me carry on and doesn't have side effects for me, luckily
4:20 am
lynxxx

Loredana played yesterday, first time for ages. She has some holidays. I hope she comes on tonight as I am sure she would be thrilled to see you Sprite
4:20 am
sprite

I was on a pretty high dose of oxycodone, but I didn't feel good about it. The loss of feeling in my feet made me go to a neurologist and he suggested Neurontin (or gabapentine), which influences the transport of information via nerves in the brain.
4:21 am
sprite

oh Lobo! Now that would make me so happy, to see her again. That is SOME lady!
4:21 am
rubyfoo

evidently oxycodone is abused a lot; it must be pretty strong
4:21 am
sprite

am sorry about your back troubles, rubyfoo, but glad that codeine makes things workable for you.
4:22 am
rubyfoo

as you say, each of us has his load to bear
4:22 am
rubyfoo

but yours sounds very tough!
4:22 am
rubyfoo

and I was OK until I was 47!
4:23 am
sprite

yes it is strong, it is one step before actually taking pure morphine. And even though it helped with the pain in my hips and back, it didn't do a thing for the pelvic bone. So I am doubly glad to go over to the neurontin, even though the actual process is rather tough. But it is finite, and I have my hope back. Things will work out.
4:24 am
rubyfoo

pure morphine is very strange, hallucinations and such
4:24 am
rubyfoo

but, when needed, it works -- and fast!
4:25 am
rubyfoo

now I have to make lunch for mr. nasty!
4:25 am
sprite

I have felt from the start as if oxycodone didn't agree with my body. I kept 'forgetting' to take pills, even though the pain was very bad. Some people get addicted to the stuff, but I have a kind of aversion against it.
4:25 am
lynxxx

see you later Ruby
4:25 am
sprite

make him a sweet lunch - it might do some good ;)
4:26 am
rubyfoo

strong character, sprite!
4:26 am
rubyfoo

see you after lunch
4:26 am
sprite

I love your icon, lyn!
4:26 am
lynxxx

it is amusing isn't it
4:26 am
sprite

not so much strong as headstrong, I think. And with a relatively good body sense.
4:27 am
sprite

yes, in every respect, lyn
4:29 am
kje

ooooo, sprite! I LOVE that icon!
4:29 am
sprite

hi kje! Good, isn't it!
4:30 am
lynxxx

hi kje
4:30 am
kje

shows up so well!
4:30 am
kje

hi all
4:30 am
sprite

yes, better in icon than on the profile, I saw.
4:31 am
kje

what is the theme, sprite?
4:31 am
sprite

Piet Mondriaan, the artist, kje
4:31 am
kje

adin
4:32 am
kje

cool, I thought maybe it was squares - LOL
4:33 am
sprite

hehehe would have been fitting as well.
4:39 am
sprite

I like this grid. It flows but it is also challenging.
4:39 am
kje

I liked yestardays better - more fun... this one is pedantic and boring
4:40 am
kje

lol
4:40 am
kje

kind of like me ; )
4:40 am
sprite

lol kje
4:40 am
sprite

I hope you know I like you so very much!
4:41 am
kje

aaaaahhhhh, thanks sprite! you are one of my faves too!
4:41 am
sprite

:)
4:42 am
kje

lots of chemistry in this grid so far
4:42 am
sprite

indeed, interesting
4:43 am
Haz1558

Hello again.
4:43 am
kje

hiya haz
4:43 am
sprite

hi haz!
4:43 am
lynxxx

wb Haz
4:43 am
Haz1558

Hello, kje, sprite, everyone!
4:44 am
Haz1558

If there are chemistry words, I'm doomed.
4:44 am
sprite

you Haz? Never.
4:45 am
lynxxx

my heart sunk a little too Haz
4:45 am
Haz1558

I'll find them, I'll just not know them.
4:46 am
kje

you may already have them and not realize they are o-chem words
4:46 am
Haz1558

Nice to see you back, sprite, I hope your meds improve your condition.
4:46 am
Haz1558

This is entirely possible, kje, I'm careless sometimes about looking up meanings.
4:46 am
sprite

Haz, can I ask you something? I have been reading a lot of english books lately and I have come across some sentences that went like: " also he wanted to consider other options as well" quite often. Would you say that is correct english or is it, as I would say, an unnecessary double?
4:47 am
kje

yes, let's hear this one haz - LOL
4:48 am
Haz1558

Not necessarily unnecessary. But how to explain...
4:49 am
kje

so glad she asked haz....
4:49 am
Haz1558

The man had choices to make. He could pick Tom, Dick or Harry, also he had other options as well, such as Peter, Paul or Luke.
4:49 am
sprite

hehehe I know whom to ask!
4:49 am
Haz1558

However, you could probably construct a less clumsy sentence than with all the alsos and as wells.
4:49 am
kje

as well is similar to "also", sprite... or "in addition to".. that type of thing
4:50 am
sprite

ok, thanks! So not necessarily incorrect, but not really 'good'.
4:50 am
kje

and since you pointed it out, yes it does sound like an unnecessary double, but maybe used for emphasis?
4:50 am
sprite

isn't it great to have people that are actually willing to answer such questions of mine? Thanks a lot, Haz.
4:50 am
Haz1558

In your sentence, sprite, also refers back to what went before, 'as well' looks to the other options. So, they're kind of different entities.
4:51 am
sprite

ah, that makes sense. Now I get the 'feel' of it a little better.
4:51 am
FMitch

Morning all
Sorry I am late for the lesson Mrs Haz ;)
4:52 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, sprite, I hope it helps! And to be honest, what you read isn't always necessarily good English. Some people get away with murder.
4:52 am
kje

yes, there is an implied phrase to follow (wanted to consider other options as well *as the job he had already applied for* etc
4:52 am
sprite

hi FM, glad to see you!
4:52 am
Haz1558

Good morning, FM. You'll stay behind for five minutes to make up time.
4:52 am
lynxxx

hi FM
4:52 am
FMitch

Hello spritey sprite and kje and lynxxx.
4:52 am
kje

but if you are reading novels, you don't have to have proper english... people talk like they do in real life
4:53 am
kje

hiya fm
4:53 am
sprite

so true, Haz! Sometimes it is hard to maneuver between trusting my own judgement and being open to learning new uses of language.
4:53 am
Haz1558

But I couldn't bring myself to write down what some people say in real life. I'd have to correct their grammar.
4:53 am
FMitch

How goes the grid today?
4:54 am
sprite

it flows, but it is challenging as well, FM. I like it a lot.
4:54 am
kje

aaahhh, but then how would you convey theyare a certain type of character, haz.... you would be stymied
4:54 am
kje

my opinion re the grid... meh
4:54 am
Haz1558

I wouldn't have those type of characters in my book!
4:55 am
kje

lol haz
4:55 am
sprite

I have just read a book in which some accents are written out almost phonetically. Not easy on a dutch girl, but enlightening. And fun!
4:55 am
FMitch

good point kje, imagine the Godfather talking like Jeeves and Wooster, it just wouldn't work.
4:55 am
kje

hard person to read? faulkner... for exactly that reason.. he tries to catch the rural southern language on page... kills me
4:56 am
Haz1558

Which accents, just as a matter of interest? Wuthering Heights has a fair amount of accent written into it.
4:56 am
Haz1558

And doesn't Steinbeck do the same?
4:56 am
FMitch

How about Chaucer then?
4:56 am
sprite

"Drop 'm buster!" seems to be more effective than "Put them down, you unfortunate piece of existance!"
4:56 am
FMitch

LOL
4:56 am
sprite

Cockney
4:57 am
kje

LOLOL sprite!!!! the second is excellent though! very funny!
4:58 am
kje

steinbeck does the same, but I do not find him quite as hard as faulkner... but maybe i just do not like faulkner... different part of the country they are portraying
4:58 am
sprite

I think Ger is inspiring me. He had a command of language that was amazing. His legal letters were nothing short of art. Most secretaries didn't like working for him, but I loved it.
4:59 am
kje

well, have fun with it, sprite!
5:00 am
sprite

and with the grid. You will beat the thing, kje.
5:00 am
kje

I am half-way, but just not enjoying it as much as yesterdays
5:00 am
kje

plus, it is 0500 here, so I must whine a bit
5:01 am
sprite

ouch that is sleeping time. Whine away, you have every right.
5:01 am
Haz1558

Your whining is lightweight considering your situation.
5:01 am
FMitch

Against my better judgement I am going to dive in.
I was up at 5am this morning kje, it's just too early.
5:02 am
Haz1558

Yes, dive in, FM, and if things get tough, we'll just keep calm and carry on.
5:02 am
kje

yes, though when I first woke up and saw it was just after 4, I thought, I feel great! and made the bad decision to get up...now I am sleepy again - LOL
5:02 am
sprite

glad to have your company, FM. What made you rise? The alarm or an inability to sleep on?
5:03 am
sprite

if you can, kje, you should give in to it and take a nap. Go with the rhythm your body asks for.
5:03 am
FMitch

Guess my body just thought it had had enough sleep despite my brain going *urgh*
5:03 am
kje

I ain't got no rhythm ; )
5:03 am
sprite

when the going gets tough, the tough take a break, Haz.
5:04 am
FMitch

Haz, looks like youa re due some more white stuff tomorrow, hope it's not a lot.
5:04 am
FMitch

or head for the nearest cabana boy sprite :)
5:05 am
sprite

oh good idea!
5:05 am
Haz1558

Dear goodness, I hadn't heard that!
5:05 am
Haz1558

Husband is getting good use of those winter tyres, that's for sure.
5:05 am
FMitch

sorry HAz, caught it on the forecast this morning and thought of you.
5:06 am
Haz1558

Maybe it won't come to much.
5:07 am
FMitch

WE had some yesterday but nothing much and all gone again now, actually it's very mild today +8.
5:07 am
sprite

*considers moving to other side of Channel*
5:08 am
FMitch

Do you still have snow sprite?
5:09 am
sprite

most snow is gone today, leaving a layer of ice on all sidewalks. Lots of rain though, so maybe things will thaw eventually.
5:09 am
Haz1558

The ice is the worst, it's so dangerous.
5:10 am
FMitch

Wouldn't it be great to go somewhere warm in November and come back in the spring.
5:10 am
sprite

I took Terra for a walk, but made it very short. It was indeed to dangerous. But it was so cold with the rain and hail that even Terra didn't mind going back :)
5:11 am
sprite

*too dangerous
5:11 am
FMitch

How is Terra, all grown up and a full member of the family I bet?
5:12 am
sprite

he is full-sized, today is his birthday. But in development he still has a way to go, he is an adolescent now. Up till about 18 months, they say.
5:12 am
FMitch

awe Happy Brithday Terra :)
5:13 am
sprite

he is doing just great. Sweet, happy and beautiful. And very much part of our family, yes.
5:13 am

Happy Birthday to Terra!! Hi FM, sprite, Haz, kje.. (-:

Aloyisius

tedia is NOT the pl of tedium I guess... am hanging in there FM, believe it or not, it is Spring here.. signs of new growth all around.. so, can't complain but am still grouchy in the cold
5:20 am
Aloyisius

How are you, FM?
5:21 am
FMitch

Am well and believing spring is just around the corner:)
5:21 am
Aloyisius

your icon is very "springy" and lovely
5:22 am
FMitch

I changed it in anticipation but have changed to another one today so you are seeing the old icon.
5:23 am
Aloyisius

h'mm, that is curious.. will refresh
5:23 am
Aloyisius

still a bouquet of yellow flowers
5:24 am
FMitch

well enjoy the daffodils then.
5:25 am
Aloyisius

I do enjoy them.. but wondering why I don't see your new icon..
5:25 am
Aloyisius

have been having computer problems and need to go purchase a RAM chip
5:25 am
FMitch

sometimes I don't see my changed icon for a while, its one of babbles idiosyncrasies.
5:26 am
Aloyisius

How is your new computer, FM?
5:27 am
FMitch

Hope that fixes the problem for you.
I love the laptop but since getting the office sorted am back on the old PC as there was so much data on it.

One day I will transfer it all across.
5:28 am
FMitch

Am going to use the laptop to try and teach my Mum how to use the internet.
5:28 am
FMitch

Given that she can't type this might be an interesting project.
5:29 am
Aloyisius

.. hope so too as I freak out when the "blue screen of death" interrupts whatever I'm doing.. Oh, FM.. I think that would be wonderful for your Mum, and for you too as you could communicate w/o long distance charges
5:31 am
FMitch

oh my tum is rumbling, think Iwill get an early lunch as breakfast was a long time ago.

Lovely to see you Aloy and take care.
5:32 am
Haz1558

See you, FM.
5:32 am
FMitch

Bye HAz might see youlater this afternoon.
5:32 am
Aloyisius

will do, FM.. finally got an email off to you.. did you get it?
5:33 am
FMitch

Yes Aloy thank you it has arrived safely.
5:33 am
Aloyisius

phew... have a super duper day, FM
5:33 am
lynxxx

bye FM
5:34 am

Bye all *poof*
5:36 am
Aloyisius

al 6.21 is such a pretty word, have no idea what it is
5:36 am
Aloyisius

brb, going to get dictionary
5:37 am
Haz1558

Plural of land owned outright.
5:37 am
Haz1558

So, not really that pretty in meaning, although I agree it sounds nice.
5:39 am
Aloyisius

back.. my balloon has been popped, I totally agree, Haz.. no pretty meaning to accompany the musical quality of the word..
5:39 am
lynxxx

so - this is NOT a nice grid. Giving up for tonight, 70 left. Bye all
5:39 am
Haz1558

Bye, lynxxx, see you tomorrow.
5:40 am
Aloyisius

sweet dreams, lynxxx!
5:40 am
Trifioso

(whispering) Haz, do you think it's just us in here? I have been bursting to tell you something!
5:40 am
Haz1558

It's just us. Go ahead.
5:41 am
Trifioso

hmmmm. might be better left to email, but I shall try to speak in code....
5:41 am
Uneaixoise

i won't tell a soul
5:41 am
Haz1558

Or put it temporarily in your profile? This is intriguing....
5:42 am
Trifioso

remember the email chat you and I had a few weeks back about a certain someone? well, certain someone OUTDID themselves the other day, and it like to drove me MAD. seriously, I was one click away from the good dr. god himself.
5:42 am
Aloyisius

I'm not listening
5:42 am
Haz1558

Aha! No code needed. Message received and understood.
5:42 am
Uneaixoise

ooohhhh, intriguing . . .
5:43 am
Trifioso

honestly, it was completely beyond the pale. begging, and then insulting the donor.
5:43 am
Trifioso

honestly, it was completely beyond the pale. begging, and then insulting the donor.
5:43 am
Trifioso

see how upsetting it was? had to say it twice! lol
5:44 am
Haz1558

That must have made life interesting for a while. I'm hugely impressed at everyone's patience, that's what inspired me to go all diplomatic.
5:45 am
Haz1558

And seriously, people have protested before now and it has mattered not a jot.
5:45 am
Trifioso

ah. well, then, maybe I should take a lesson. as it was, I just gave up and came back in an hour.
5:45 am
Haz1558

It's the way she likes to play.
5:46 am
Trifioso

oh hey - just found a lovely phantom for me: tertiare!
5:46 am
Uneaixoise

140 down, 68 to go -- back to bed :-) *poof*
5:46 am
Haz1558

It might be a good test for sedatives. Babble with and without and see what difference they make to the blood pressure.
5:46 am
Haz1558

The critical point would come when you have to decide whether it's more important to find words or to keep awake.
5:46 am
Aloyisius

see you later, Une..
5:47 am
Haz1558

Bye Une - sleep well.
5:47 am
Trifioso

it probably says more about my mind set at the time. I was thiiiiiiiiiis close to flaming in the chog.
5:47 am
Haz1558

Been there, done it, left feeling like a wet rag.
5:48 am
Trifioso

it's still a pisser. I come here to escape stress, not get more
5:49 am
Haz1558

I know. It's a problem.
5:49 am
Haz1558

You want light conversation, a bit of laughter, that kind of thing.
5:51 am
Trifioso

sigh
5:51 am
Aloyisius

maybe Angelsong could add a "Babble Etiquette" chapter to Babble for Dummies link
5:51 am
Aloyisius

oops, I forgot, I'm not listening..
5:52 am
Trifioso

I mean, I am probably more guilty than anyone of airing my dirty laundry in the chog, so I really shouldn't be casting stones, but this is more about playing, though I am trying to be better about chog whining, today notwithstanding
5:52 am
Haz1558

And you have no clue who we're talking about either.
5:53 am
Aloyisius

this is true, Haz
5:53 am
JBV

hi and good morning - i wasn't even here at the time you're talking about, but I agree there should be a Babble Etiquette level one that everyone agrees to
5:53 am
Haz1558

Good morning, JBV.
5:53 am

morning Babblers - good to be with you to start this day. Cheerios & words!
5:53 am

Good morning, bojazz.

5:54 am
JBV

hi Aloy! and Haz, bojazz, Trif (and lurkers)
5:54 am
Trifioso

oooh, cheerios! now I want some!
5:56 am
Aloyisius

yup, even if it were written tongue-in-cheek, "no no's for the chog" would be a helpful chapter
5:57 am
Trifioso

well, i highly recommend "kindly do not insult people who give clues" as a rule
5:58 am
Trifioso

and a quick show of hands, please: who else tried to enter "yoda" today?
5:58 am
Aloyisius

sounds good, Trif.. especially when they are trying to be helpful, what a rude way to treat them
5:58 am
Haz1558

Was it 'that was a rubbish clue, do it again' kind of insult'?
5:59 am
JBV

I remember when I first chanced upon this game - I spent at least two weeks just reading the chog, at times amazed at how fast it whizzed by, and just getting a "sense" of the unwritten rules
5:59 am
littlebit

my hand is raised
5:59 am
Trifioso

yes, but way worse
5:59 am
Trifioso

thanks little bit!

hi aloy
6:01 am
Trifioso

okay, thanks, I feel better for our little chat haz. I need to step out soon. Primo made this GINORMOUS physics project, and I have to drive him to school today, as there is no way this thing would have fit on the bus!
6:01 am
Trifioso

and I have to be in work early today. Ugh. Early and I are not on friendly terms, ever
6:01 am
Haz1558

Glad you feel better. You can be sure that if, at any time, you are feeling murderous, the chances are that others are as well.
6:02 am
Haz1558

Sitting on hands and biting of tongue is much practised in this chat log.
6:02 am
Aloyisius

hagd, Trifioso.. good luck to your son with his physics project!
6:02 am
Trifioso

thanks haz. losing my religion and yelling at someone in the chog to just stop it already is probably in violation of the babble etiquette rules, huh?
6:03 am
Haz1558

Ah, but the rules are unwritten....
6:03 am
Trifioso

thanks aloy. if they gave up points for expense to mothers alone, he would get honors.
6:03 am
Haz1558

The rules are more understood than written, but some jut don't understand.
6:03 am
Haz1558

*just
6:03 am
Aloyisius

lol.. passes Trifiosa an A+ certificate of Appreciation
6:04 am
Haz1558

It's not a scaled down version of that collider?
6:05 am
JBV

hi, back after a mad rush to the curb to get the recycling out - had forgotten until I heard the truck down the street
6:05 am
Trifioso

no, a propulsion mechanism, but the cost was similar to the collider. back soon! moochas smoochas!
6:05 am
JBV

brr, it's cold out there
6:06 am

morning, rumple
6:50 am
oodleberry

my grandpa was the youngest of 16 children and because my great parents couldn't take care of him very well by themselves he was put in a monastery and ran away and snuck on a ship going to the US. then when he established himself in NYC he ended up running and owning several Barber shop businesses including selling tabaco and candy; several houses and apartment houses. During the crash of 29 he lost all his businesses and his houses and apt houses but managed to keep the original Barber shop and his own house.
6:51 am
Aloyisius

hi rumple.. you must have started at the flip?
6:51 am
herinfernallady

bless my kitty. He just saved me from a little spider
6:51 am

6:52 am
oodleberry

hi rumple hi your ladyship
6:52 am
herinfernallady

Oddle that is really interesting history
6:52 am
Aloyisius

oodle, you had one hard working grandpa!
6:52 am
oodleberry

yup and I don't know how he managed to go on just a few hours of sleep
6:55 am
herinfernallady

Oddle my Great Grandpa, Bampi Fought in the Battle of Gallipoli came home then worked as a coal miner and marched from Wales to England in a coalminers strike. I think that generation were inspiring
7:00 am
Aloyisius

eyes need a break, still four to find before I "earn" the list.. brb
7:01 am
bichon

My grandpa came to the US before the first WW because he was the bad boy of the family and my grandma came cause she was the prettiest daughter, but the youngest. All the suitors wanted to marry her and not her older sisters
7:01 am
oodleberry

even when he was home, you didn't see him lying about the house... he was always doing something. one time there was something he was wanting to do on the roof (this is when he was getting older and my aunt took over the businesses) when my aunt went to work my grandpa went off on the roof and fell off, the exact reason why my aunt told him specifically not to go up there when no one is here. Well he fell off and dragged himself in the house. He survived and I think this was the time his cut his hand very badly and he put vaseline and tape on it (he put vaseline on everything sore, cut, etc.!). One day my aunt smelled something funny and she saw that my Grandpa's hand had gangreen. and she goes PAPA!! YOU went on the roof didn't you ??? Well she took him to the hospital and got it taken care of but what a man... sometimes i think if I had half the ambition he did I would be somewhere today.
7:03 am
oodleberry

indeed lady but my mother has the same work ethic... she tried and tried to en still it in me but didn't work that well.
7:04 am
herinfernallady

OOdle that reminds me of the Nonna and Nonno next door to my house. He would get up on his ladder to trim a tree and Nonna would go right off at him
7:05 am
oodleberry

my grandpa and grandma were the same... they were work horses.
7:05 am
herinfernallady

My dad doesn't sit still either
7:08 am
oodleberry

He came through Ellis Island and I think was there for about a week before they let him in cause he didn't have any papers and it was around the time of mouselini and fascism.
7:09 am
bichon

My grandparents and uncle came through Ellis Island too. I've visited ther several times
7:10 am
oodleberry

oh he was 14 when he came over too
7:10 am
bichon

They wanted to keep my Uncle cause they thought he had TB, but he had a goiter
7:11 am
oodleberry

oh wow
7:14 am
bichon

I've been to Ellis Island both before it was renovated and after. I grew up in NYC
7:15 am
oodleberry

I was only born there Richmond
7:16 am
oodleberry

there used to be a naval base there but it is no longer
7:16 am
bichon

On Ellis Island? I didn't know that. I was born at the Brooklyn Naval Yard in '46
7:18 am
herinfernallady

HI Bichon
7:18 am

hi Herin, long time no see
7:18 am
herinfernallady

I should be in bed. Sorry to interupt

7:21 am

I'm back, oodle
7:21 am
herinfernallady

I just got in actually and I should be in bed
7:22 am
oodleberry

was just looking at Ellis Island at google and it is strange the way it is part in NJ and part NY
7:22 am
herinfernallady

I was out helping a friends daughter the nerve of some RealEstate agents
7:23 am
Aloyisius

what did the agents try to pull, herin?
7:24 am
herinfernallady

They tried to pull the give as $2000 cash and we wont evict you. The $1000 for the person before you that you moved in and took over their spot on the lease (so its not her debt) and $1000 cash bond
7:24 am
herinfernallady

Both highly illegal
7:25 am
Aloyisius

do you have something like the BBB? (Better Business Bureau).. they should be reported or something
7:25 am
herinfernallady

And because I had the renters rights book as a spare we drove down to her and showed her her rights and highlighted what she needs to write out for going to the tribunal tommorow to straighten it all out
7:26 am
herinfernallady

We have VCAT. She has to go there tomorrow to sort it out. I do wish we had a website like they have in the USA that shames shonky agents.
7:26 am
bichon

Oodle, there's always been a big turf war between NY and NJ over the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
7:26 am
Aloyisius

"shonky" is a new word for me, but I know what you mean!
7:27 am
herinfernallady

Sorry I forget my Ausisms
7:27 am
oodleberry

well I always thought it was in NYC as the statue of liberty..
7:27 am
herinfernallady

I wanted to go and yell at this person taking advantage of someone that doesn't understand
7:27 am
Aloyisius

I like that word ! It sounds like its meaning.. (-:
7:28 am
Aloyisius

why the turf war? gate taxes?
7:29 am
oodleberry

from the map it is very much in the boundaries of NJ not NY
7:29 am
Aloyisius

interesting.. always thought it was in NY
7:29 am
bichon

Aloy, Interstate jealousies. It was traditonaly part of NYC, but in later years, NJ has gotten more aggressive about it.
7:31 am
Aloyisius

yet, in my mind, the statue "belongs" to the nation, not to one state
7:35 am
herinfernallady

Aloy you always have agents here that pray on young people and their first out of home rental experiance and it makes me so angry
7:36 am
Aloyisius

glad you had that book, herin.. maybe agents should be required to provide one to each client
7:37 am
oodleberry

you are right so it should be but tell that to NY and NJ they probably won't give it up ... the statue of liberty is clearly in NY by the borders around it indicate but the dock to it is in NJ... so funny
7:37 am
herinfernallady

They are meant to by law. i think the previous person had it.
7:38 am
Aloyisius

ahh, now I understand..
7:38 am
Aloyisius

but lots of people don't read their rights and are not as informed as you ..
7:39 am
herinfernallady

But if you haven't read the book before or had a bad rental experience you just wouldn't know. I had a bad experience with my old real estate agent so I knew teh book
7:40 am
Aloyisius

glad you were there to help, herin.. lucky for your friend
7:40 am
oodleberry

yeah for her ladyship!!! :D
7:42 am
herinfernallady

I just looked at the realestate agent I previously had and they are advertising in my old block of flats and the description is for the first floor flat not the ground floor they are such idiots
7:45 am
oodleberry

sick 'em lady
7:45 am
Aloyisius

wow, this grid is something.. giving my brain and eyeballs quite a workout
7:47 am

7:49 am
Aloyisius

at this rate, they are going fast!
7:50 am
herinfernallady

My friend used to sing : I like monkey nuts and grapes That is why I am Tarzan king of the apes
7:50 am
herinfernallady

opps I meant: I like bannana's, monkey nuts and grapes.
7:50 am
Aloyisius

ok.. what is a monkey nut?
7:51 am
oodleberry

7:51 am

7:52 am
herinfernallady

He used to sing this whilst jumping up and down on the bed being very irritating
7:53 am
oodleberry

it can be any nut... but it is a monkey nut cause the monkey eats them :D
7:55 am
herinfernallady

Ok I really hopped you would get this but obviously my Australian humor doesn't transtlate. By Monkey nuts i meant testicles
7:55 am

heh, leave it to crossy to emerge when nudity and/or bacon are mentioned...
9:35 am
crosshair

mmm bacon...
9:36 am
sprite

nudity? bacon?
9:36 am
crosshair

what a combo!
9:36 am
jmcnrick

mmmm bacon
9:36 am
sprite

never had bacon with clothes on
9:37 am
sprite

well... the bacon. I had clothes on.
9:37 am
sprite

hi all
9:37 am
crosshair

thats my girl..oh you mean the bacon was unclothed or you were? lol
9:37 am
jmcnrick

*imagines sprite lying in bed with her beloved dangling bacon over her open mouth*
9:37 am
sprite

grin
9:38 am
sprite

now there's an idea
9:38 am
aebmusica

dangerous to fry bacon with no clothes on...sometimes painful Sprite.
9:38 am
EvaNadine

in most dishes, the bacon ARE the clothes...heh
9:39 am
crosshair

one of my dads ten best bits of advice 'never cook bacon without a shirt on" ;))
9:39 am
sprite

and never make love wearing socks?
9:39 am
crosshair

depends where the sock is
9:40 am
aebmusica

that's if u want to keep a brest of the times(lol)
9:40 am
sprite

owwwwwkay!
9:40 am
sprite

lol aeb
9:40 am
jmcnrick

i wear a large apron -- shirt is is not required
9:40 am
jmcnrick

nor nickers
9:40 am
sprite

true, just the apron will do nicely
9:40 am
EvaNadine

man. we had ourselves a rough night last night that seems to be seeping into a rough day today.
i need to schedule us some massages!
9:40 am
jmitch

cross: the sock works for frying bacon....at least for the lads
9:41 am
crosshair

who says the chog was quiet;)) seems lively to me;))
9:41 am
jmcnrick

i have had a headache for 24 hours and am getting tired of it
9:41 am
sprite

*sends EvaN some cabana boys and girls with magic hands*
9:41 am
sprite

don't talk to me about lively. Just was crudely awakened twice from my sweet nap
9:42 am
sprite

jmc how rotten
9:42 am
crosshair

had to massage a migraine out of my better half last night.poor thing had it for 5 days;(
9:42 am
jmcnrick

how crudely?
9:42 am
sprite

once a slamming door, once a telephone
9:42 am
jmcnrick

i usually can sleep them off but this one just won't go
9:42 am
crosshair

she heard neeked and bacon and was jolted awake lol
9:42 am
sprite

ouch crossy. She is lucky to have you! And you her, no doubt
9:42 am
jmcnrick

pooh that is rudely not crude at all!
9:43 am
sprite

snow, thunderstorm or both heading your way, jmc?
9:43 am
jmcnrick

snow is theoretically
9:43 am
sprite

ah, rudely. I apologise.
9:43 am
jmcnrick

you thinking it is barometric pressure?
9:44 am
sprite

might be snow then. Hard to make those headaches go away, al4. Black coffee or red wine/port might give some relief.
9:44 am
jmcnrick

crude is what crossy would propose
9:44 am
jmcnrick

i am drinking coffee now
9:44 am
crosshair

i am not always crude,i am a gentleman at heart;)
9:45 am
jmcnrick

i had red wine last night
9:45 am
sprite

ah well, crossy can awaken me crudely whenever he likes, lol.
Thanks jmc!
9:45 am
sprite

you certainly are, cross
9:45 am
jmcnrick

you have your gentlemanly moments cross
9:45 am
crosshair

i always give the ladies the first piece of bacon;)))
9:46 am
sprite

wine never works for me, port used to sometimes. Coffee, ordinary black coffee, once out of every 3 times, I'd say.
9:46 am
sprite

only the first piece? Man, once our appetite is aroused, we want the whole thing.
9:47 am
crosshair

lol,like a diesel motor..cant get them going..then cant turn em off lol
9:48 am
sprite

I wouldn't say that
9:48 am
crosshair

oh...look at this lovely grid,err i better dive in..sploosh!
9:48 am
aebmusica

sometimes they're turned off before the starting crossy
9:49 am
sprite

and sometimes they start all by themselves
9:49 am
jmcnrick

"With consummate ease he could teetotaciously
exfluncticate his opponent in a conbobberation,
that is to say a conflict or disturbance, or
ramsquaddle him bodaciously, after which the
luckless fellow would absquatulate."

gruel is oat based and grits are corn based
1:13 pm

ty jmc
1:13 pm
jmcnrick

the only thing changes is what you put on them crossy

1:26 pm
rubyfoo

the best is a nessie, with a tuscan pepper, smirnoff and evian. The pepper peeks over the side of the glass, hence, "Nessie"
1:26 pm
rubyfoo

5:30 pm
hurshy

the way to get chat moving again is to say silly things. then people are more tempted to respond, if in fact people are watching the chog.
5:31 pm
JBV

that wasn't silly, hurshy but hello anyway
5:32 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I thought I was being silly.
5:32 pm
hurshy

i know it wasn't silly. *i* wasn't trying to get chat moving, merely offering advice for anyone who wished to do so.
5:32 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Actually, no, I was dead serious.
5:32 pm

5:35 pm
Kaplan the Magne

How many of you will admit to watching a daytime soap opera?
5:35 pm
JBV

speaking of silly, we just finished watching THe Fifth Element for about the 1000th time - it's a really weird movie
5:36 pm
JBV

haven't watched daytime soaps since the 80s when I was home during the day, was hooked on Guiding Light
5:36 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Anyone else more recent?
5:37 pm
hurshy

i own a joey lawrence cassette tape... but have never watched soaps. sorry.
5:37 pm
JBV

5:38 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Someone out there must be secretly hooked on a daytime soap!
5:38 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Funny you should ask.
5:38 pm

5:40 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Is that a guilty silence?
5:41 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I consider Days of Our Lives to be my post-doc. It's been over 5 years.
5:42 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Dissertation was torture.
5:42 pm

5:42 pm

hi seain. hi jbv
6:36 pm
JBV

hi, jilli, I thought of you today - I am reading a book by someone who grew up in Shanghai - Am I remembering correctly - you did grow up there?
6:37 pm
jillibus

Yes, jbv -- what's the book?
6:37 pm
JBV

Falling Leaves by Adeline Yen Mah -
6:38 pm
JBV

kind of depressing but the portrait of the times is very interesting
6:38 pm
jillibus

Oh well -- hers was a different world
6:38 pm
JBV

her mother died at birth, father remarried the most EVIL stepmother, etc., but she managed to succeed, became a doctor, and wrote this book for revenge I guess
6:39 pm
jillibus

good for her! What time period was this?
6:39 pm
JBV

she went to university in London around 1950 I think, so I guess she was born around 1930
6:43 pm
jillibus

Interesting! My son gave me a paperback for Xmas called Shanghai -- 1155 pages! It's as thick as a brick -- goes into the distant past. I've only read 77 pages so far.
6:45 pm
72 Temple Owl

sounds intersting jbv
6:46 pm
JBV

that's quite a handful - 1155 pages for a paperback?
6:46 pm
jillibus

Yes!
6:46 pm
JBV

if only half of what she remembers is true, the stepmother is really an ogre
6:49 pm
jillibus

The one I'm reading is fiction and a bit annoying so far -- painting the "foreigners" as cruel monsters and the residents of China at that time as ultra-civilised saints. Real names are thinly disguised.
6:51 pm
JBV

who's the author, jilli?

Of course, that's the fashionable view nowadays but my father knew better, having spent almost all his life there, working for the Chinese Postal Bank. HIs parents were Scottish missionaries, oh horror!

I have a young co-worker (not a nurse, however) who was going home to watch Lost. I told her that she should go to a caucus instead (she's always complaining about politics). If she did go watch Lost, next time she starts complaining about politics I lan to tell her she's not allowed because she didn't participate.
