A man had 50 yard line tickets for the Super Bowl.

As he sits down, a man comes by and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him.

"No," he says, "The seat is empty."

"This is incredible," said the man. "Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Super Bowl, the biggest sporting event in America , and not use it."

He says, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Super Bowl we haven't been to together since we got married in 1967."

"Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. But couldn't you find someone else -- a friend, relative, or neighbor to take the seat?"

The man sadly shakes his head, "No, they're all at the funeral."

2:04 am
westford

I will try it. Even when I get a perm I don't like tight curls
2:05 am
westford

and I don't like curlers or curling irons you need 4 hands
2:05 am
westford

I still have my hot rollers lol

2:06 am

2:24 am
westford

does she live close by too?
2:25 am
flosey

they're staying with her (she's still in the big house where they all lived before going their own ways, while the condo is being renovated - Patrick had totally gutted it - down to concrete floor, risers only left dividing rooms
2:26 am
westford

I remember flosey right before William was born
2:26 am
flosey

he wanted to do the word all himself but is far too busy, and wouldhave become very frustrating for them
2:27 am
westford

he can save that for when he's retired
2:27 am
flosey

they're in north van and gramma is in west van
2:27 am
flosey

**work not word
2:27 am
westford

I'll bet his other gramma is just eating him up
2:27 am
flosey

maybe 10 minutes or so away
2:28 am
westford

and they'll go home to a nice new place
2:28 am
flosey

she sure is west, she's confined to wheelchair, has had some pretty scary surgeries lately
2:29 am
westford

then William is the best medicine
2:29 am
flosey

yes, isn't it lovely - they may decide not to look for a home right now
2:29 am
lynxxx

Sounds like it is a hidden blessing them being there
2:30 am
flosey

indeed it is, daughter is able to help out so Pat's other sister can work at the office instead of at home
2:31 am
flosey

must get to bed now, and let you gals get back to the puzzle, when anyone asks, I just love to show the new pics
2:31 am
westford

and we love seeing them
2:31 am
westford

sleep well flosey and good luck with the new hairdresser
2:31 am
flosey

thanks
2:32 am
lynxxx

night again Flosey, thanks for sharing
2:32 am
flosey

will let you know - but with so many friends going to her, I better not complain
2:32 am
flosey

ty Lyn
2:33 am
flosey

really must poof
2:45 am

BBL
2:46 am
westford

bye lyn
3:31 am
rubyfoo

hi lynxx, back for a minute
3:31 am
rubyfoo

this is a very hard grid for me and don't have much time today
3:32 am
rubyfoo

all kinds of administrative/tax/secretarial junk to do
3:32 am
rubyfoo

am I alone??
3:32 am
westford

I'm still here watching the half pipe
3:33 am
westford

lyn left awhile ago
3:33 am
westford

I call that busy work it's relaxing in a way
3:33 am
rubyfoo

how is it? the olympics coverage is terrible here; they focus exclusively on the French athletes. It was embarrassing watching the men's short program -- Brian Joubert is awful!
3:34 am
rubyfoo

and when "the last hope" for the French women's giant slalom fell immediately after leaving the gate, they showed here fall around a dozen times.
3:35 am
westford

it's fun to watch our son in law said he and his 5 brothers talked their dad into draining their swimming pool so they could skate board in it
3:35 am
rubyfoo

too funny
3:35 am
westford

I hate when they fall all that work gone in a second
3:35 am
rubyfoo

I think American coverage is much less partisan
3:36 am
rubyfoo

it's awful when they keep repeating the falls and other mistakes especially in the skating
3:36 am
westford

not sure about that they do seem to cover a lot of the US
3:37 am
westford

all I know is I couldn't do any of it
3:37 am
rubyfoo

but the athletes are worth covering. Here, they have endless interviews with the losers
3:37 am
rubyfoo

I skied until about 4 years ago, but it\s just too dangerous at my age, risking having some big person, out of control, crash into me!
3:37 am
westford

sort of like 'we were counting on you and you let us down?'
3:38 am
rubyfoo

no, they all make excuses, e. g. I had a headache, the dog ate my homework, my ma yelled at me. lol
3:38 am
westford

did you start young?
3:38 am
westford

lol
3:39 am
westford

the slopes looked like pure ice
3:39 am
rubyfoo

no, I started when I was 32 as an activity I could do with my son as I was divorced. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), he was better than I after one day!
3:40 am
westford

I am not a winter person went on a sleigh ride once and nearly froze to death
3:40 am
rubyfoo

the slopes look terrifying to me. I was never very good, always went pretty slowly and carefully and, I hope, gracefully. I didn't fall much and loved it. It was like dancing\
3:40 am
westford

give me a nice warm fire to sit in front of and watch the snow
3:41 am
rubyfoo

you'd love it here, two fireplaces and lots of snow!
3:41 am
rubyfoo

and two warm dogs
3:41 am
westford

I wish I'd talked to you when I was younger
3:41 am
westford

I know I would
3:41 am
westford

do you usually get that much snow?
3:42 am
westford

I'm afraid of French people
3:42 am
rubyfoo

I just looked at your profile. I am 66 and used to be in the glass business and for a while, imported Italian glass and was taken to THE MURANO BEAD FACTORY by a colleague. It was amazing.
3:42 am
westford

I don't think they like us
3:42 am
herinfernallady

Hi
3:42 am
rubyfoo

I'm not French; I'm from NY
3:42 am
rubyfoo

hiya lady
3:43 am
westford

hi herin
3:43 am
westford

I know you're not ruby but you live there
3:43 am
rubyfoo

we live in a little village and the people are very nice to us
3:43 am
westford

that's different then
3:43 am
rubyfoo

have you been to Murano, West?
3:43 am
herinfernallady

HI. I got told today that there is a new nintendo hand held game system being released soon. I think i want it
3:44 am
westford

no, I just found that on google
3:44 am
westford

what is it herin?
3:44 am
westford

oh a whole new system?
3:44 am
rubyfoo

the bead factory is like something out of the 18th century. The molten glass comes down wires from the second story cauldrons in different colors and gets chopped into "spaghetti" at the bottom!
3:45 am
herinfernallady

Nintendo Dsi LL or as they outside Japan market its the DSi XL
3:45 am
westford

ruby, I was trying to find a bead or beads I liked to post and after looking at about 30 pages I couldn't decide
3:45 am
rubyfoo

it was a magical experience
3:45 am
westford

herin what kind of games do you play?
3:46 am
rubyfoo

I used to collect beads, especially African ones
3:46 am
westford

the story I read said there were 3 and 4 generations working there
3:46 am
herinfernallady

All sorts of stuff. Puzzles etc
3:46 am
gortmold

hey herin, wes and ruby
3:47 am
rubyfoo

it was very strange and interesting. Most of the beads are exported to Africa, which I found very funny
3:47 am
westford

hello gort
3:47 am
rubyfoo

hiya gort
3:47 am
herinfernallady

Hold that thought please sorry
3:47 am
gortmold

how r yr assorted grandkiddies, wes, and pooches, ruby, and degrees, herin?
3:47 am
westford

that is strange about Africa
3:48 am
rubyfoo

They gave me a sack full of different kinds of tiny beads, some multi-colored strings, others metallic. I have a friend here who does crafts and I gave her a lot of them. Think of all the African beading you see in films -- all done with Italian beads. LOL
3:48 am
westford

they're good gort we are going to Abby's 4th birthday party on Sunday and then to dinner at another's first apartment
3:49 am
gortmold

cool, wes
3:49 am
rubyfoo

I am hunkered down, waiting for Spring. This is a very long winter!
3:49 am
westford

isn't it though
3:50 am
westford

now they don't plow our road so it's all slushy
3:50 am
rubyfoo

skiing was a good way to get through part of the dark time, and without that activity, I stay in the house most of the time
3:50 am
gortmold

can you ski near your house?
3:51 am
rubyfoo

husband does all the grocery shopping so I just cook and take care of the dogs and play babble.
3:51 am
rubyfoo

We used to go to Austria which is 5 hrs away, but there are places to ski 1/2 hour from here.
3:51 am
gortmold

ahhhh (gort drools in jealous awe)
3:51 am
rubyfoo

husband was too much of a snob to ski locally!
3:51 am
westford

our oldest daughter is coming down on Friday and we'll go to lunch otherwise I have no desire to go out in this weather
3:52 am
rubyfoo

but dort, you are not sitting with furry slippers and freezing feet!
3:52 am
westford

how long have you lived in France?
3:52 am
rubyfoo

I only go out when we eat lunch in restaurants.
3:52 am
gortmold

so you can ski locally, but prefer further afield?! Ozzies pay squillions to travel a kazilion miles to get a glimmer of snow
3:53 am
rubyfoo

11 years here, since my husband retired. We only got married in Dec '97, then moved here in '98
3:53 am
joshuavorbis

hi and nbt
3:53 am
gortmold

3:53 am
westford

hi josh
3:53 am
rubyfoo

3:53 am
rubyfoo

hi josh
3:53 am
westford

took me 79 words before I got nbt
3:54 am
westford

and from what you've told us a beautiful garden too
3:54 am
gortmold

thanks ruby, i'll take you up on your generous offer; by the way, i like my room filled with snow
3:54 am
rubyfoo

our snowbird friends from Sween and from Ireland, who keep houses here, came to ski between Christmas and New Year's and it rained almost the whole time! After they all left, we got tons of snow
3:54 am
westford

silly gort
3:54 am
rubyfoo

that's Sweden*
3:55 am
rubyfoo

then you can sleep in the garden, gort!
3:55 am
gortmold

lol, thanks ruby, sounds like a dream come true
3:55 am
rubyfoo

if you like, west, I can send you photos of the garden. It is very nice and a little bit unusual because it has very limited colors
3:56 am
westford

I'd love that
3:56 am
gortmold

hey do you know if the ar8 is spiderish?
3:56 am
westford

it must be a lot of work to keep it up
3:56 am
joshuavorbis

i just got that - just stuff a lot of vowels in there
3:57 am
joshuavorbis

not spider related
3:57 am
westford

not really gort
3:57 am
rubyfoo

it is a weird word, I got it from the chog. The beginning is spiderish but then the ending is just strange
3:57 am
gortmold

ok whichdirection should i head in pls?
3:57 am
joshuavorbis

make a long u-turn
3:57 am
rubyfoo

I have a handyman to help me and my husband cuts the grass. I mostly design and point, too frail to do much actual work
3:57 am
herinfernallady

Hi sorry about that. I had an ''emergancy'' phone cal. Known as I have a working laptop and a paniced friend on the phone
3:58 am
westford

that's my kind of gardening
3:58 am
westford

gort, start with the middle left a and go across and then down
3:59 am
westford

3:59 am
rubyfoo

OK, I'll try to clue it: ar + vowel + creta***** era
3:59 am
gortmold

gortmold

4:00 am
rubyfoo

4:00 am
westford

4:00 am
westford

wow that was fast !!
4:01 am
herinfernallady

West my friend was trying to look up a medical thingy about her daughter and she had a wonderful blue screen of doom
4:01 am
westford

4:01 am
westford

rubyfoo

4:04 am
joshuavorbis

i don't know about the flooding in machi picchu
4:04 am
joshuavorbis

it'd take a lot of rain to flood that
4:04 am
westford

I meant the 'ar' lol
4:04 am
joshuavorbis

can't spell tonight
4:05 am
westford

they had some really bad flooding and mudslides there
4:05 am
herinfernallady

West honestly we are not sure about the kido. Her blood work got sent interstate. Not sure if I consider that serious or careful
4:05 am
rubyfoo

west, I don't know how to put my e-mail in my profile but if we can figure out how to exchange addresses, I can send you wondrous photos! LOL
4:05 am
westford

lynxxx

Had a young friend who was in the last lot of tourists to be flown out in helicopter from there West
4:06 am
rubyfoo

the floods knocked out the only rail link to Machu Pichu and people had to be evacuated by helicopter
4:06 am
westford

I heard it was pretty bad
4:06 am
rubyfoo

maybe now they'll limit the fow of tourists
4:07 am
joshuavorbis

that sounds terrible
4:07 am
rubyfoo

I've only been to South America once and that was to Quito Ecuador. Small trip but great food and drink!
4:07 am
lynxxx

Was certainly an adventure for them...they only missed the earthquake in Haiti by a couple of weeks too
4:07 am
westford

I have some really good recipes from Colombia
4:08 am
rubyfoo

if I was them, I think I'd stay home!
4:08 am
rubyfoo

I've lost my sense of adventure!
4:08 am
rubyfoo

using quinoa? I loved all the meals with 3 kinds of startch
4:08 am
herinfernallady

West did you get my message
4:08 am
rubyfoo

starch**
4:08 am
westford

I know I've lost my desire to fly
4:08 am
lynxxx

lol, I did say they were young
4:09 am
rubyfoo

me, too. And I have to go to London in May for a family party and I feel like canceling....I was thinking of going by train, but then that horrible thing with the Chunnel happened, so I have added that to my fears
4:10 am
joshuavorbis

phant chorale
4:10 am
westford

how'd they cross before the chunnel?
4:11 am
westford

maybe you could do that
4:11 am
rubyfoo

ship/ferry
4:11 am
rubyfoo

takes to long is the problem
4:11 am
rubyfoo

the flight is only 1 hr 20 from Geneva; it seems stupid to spend a whole day each way
4:12 am
westford

my idea of the great travel experience would be on the Orient Express ala Agatha Christie
4:12 am
herinfernallady

Clue for the 9 please
4:12 am
lynxxx

Th tunnel problem was only because of the cold Ruby wasn't it...May will be summer so won't be a problem - ?
4:12 am
westford

without the murders of course
4:12 am
rubyfoo

me, too, we looked into it once but it was REALLY expensive
4:12 am
westford

looking herin
4:12 am
herinfernallady

Ok
4:13 am
rubyfoo

true, Lynxx, I'll have to give it a hard think!
4:13 am
herinfernallady

Hi Lynxx. Ruby that sound a lot like our Spirit of Tasmania boat
4:13 am
joshuavorbis

ca + masked rodent vermin ****on + french definite article and pl for the 9
4:13 am
westford

girl's name or dear in Italian and boy's name ( pini's grandson)
4:13 am
rubyfoo

are the waters rough? Everybody used to get sick on the Channel ferries!
4:13 am
herinfernallady

riiiiiiight that makes no sense
4:14 am
rubyfoo

great clue!
4:14 am
herinfernallady

It depends Ruby. just damn expensive. It is expensive to fly and hire a car too. So you are screwed either way
4:14 am
joshuavorbis

sorry, it's not a rodent, it's actually a mammal
4:15 am
herinfernallady

O that one the one that sneaks your trash
4:15 am
rubyfoo

I knew that animal, just didn't see him lurking in the grid!
4:15 am
rubyfoo

not in France
4:15 am
westford

that one
4:15 am
rubyfoo

west, do you prefer your photos one at a time or in clusters?
4:15 am
westford

no Rocky's in France?
4:16 am
rubyfoo

I'll try to make a slide show
4:16 am
westford

either way is okay whatever is easier for you
4:16 am
rubyfoo

if they're edible, the French have made them into stew!
4:16 am
westford

that would be sweet
4:16 am
rubyfoo

they call them "ratons laveurs", vermin who wash their hands!
4:17 am
westford

and give it a fancy French name?
4:17 am
rubyfoo

I'll send the photos after lunch
4:17 am

when I lived in Miami, one of those sandwich trucks used to park across from the office and make mystery meat empanadas. Even the Spanish girls wouldn't eat them, but I did, half expecting to see little feet and tails sticking out
4:19 am
herinfernallady

ewwww
4:19 am
westford

lol
4:19 am
lynxxx

what was Pepe la Phew? I loved that cartoon
4:19 am

Le Meow Le Purr
4:20 am
westford

I like Flower from Bambi
4:20 am
rubyfoo

he was a skunk or "putois" in French. I don't think they have skunks here. I used to have a skunk-fur coat (dyed of course) from the 30's, purchased at the Salvation Army, and when it snowed you could still smell faint skunk perfume. In elevators, I would just look around like it was somebody else
4:21 am
herinfernallady

awww I loved Flower. That's not a flower silly that is a skunk
4:21 am
rubyfoo

I had better go and make lunch for DH!
4:21 am

I'm surprised they didn't throw tomato juice on you

westford

that's what we use and it works
4:22 am
rubyfoo

cuban sandwiches were terrific in Miami, but you need that special sweetish bread
4:23 am
westford

they have them here but I wonder if they'd taste the same
4:23 am
westford

we do have quite an ethnic mix
4:23 am
herinfernallady

Except if the mutt is too big *like Nuts dumb dog* and then it's just too expensive
4:24 am
westford

yeah, that would be
4:24 am
herinfernallady

I think Nut has told me puppy has been sprayed more than once. Not much brain in his skull
4:25 am

4:25 am

'what kind of cat are you?' lol
4:25 am
westford

all we have around here are squirrels
4:26 am
herinfernallady

lol
4:26 am
westford

some got under the hood of the car and chewed the wiring
4:26 am
herinfernallady

then that leads to the spray. We don't have skunks here
4:31 am
westford

you have some pretty interesting animals though
4:33 am
herinfernallady

yes we do
4:33 am
herinfernallady

I had my moments.
2:36 pm

I'm sensing there might be some stories to go with this...;)
2:37 pm

well, she did tell me i'd ruined my life after i got my first tattoo.
2:37 pm

that nobody would hire me and i'd end up on welfare.

hello all
2:38 pm
jesdraggon

i told her that if my prospective boss was looking at my ankles during the interview, I didn't want to work for him anyway.
2:38 pm
Nancy Boy

I never told my parents about my tattoos! Some things, they don't -need- to know ;)
2:38 pm
jesdraggon

i didn't tell her; she saw it when she came to visit (i was wearing a long skirt, but it shifted up when i stepped into the car)
2:38 pm
Nancy Boy

LOL Jes!! What did you get on your ankle? I bet it hurt over the bone!
2:39 pm
jesdraggon

but she got over it... by the time she found out about the piercings, she'd given up on caring about body mods and just thinks i'm nuts for doing it.
2:39 pm
jesdraggon

actually, there's only one small area that's over the tendon that hurt. the rest climbs up the side of my leg, and hurt a LOT less than the one on my upper thigh!
2:42 pm
Nancy Boy

what piercings do you have, Jes?
My favourite (least painful) tattoo was my lion (for Leo, geddit?)...the rest I was a wimp over!
2:42 pm

no, kaplan. they just hurt.
2:45 pm

Well YOU may we wearing a shirt ;) no promises on my side. I worked hard on my abs and now clothing seems like a shame...

I don't like pain.

but being disobedient is so much more fun.
2:50 pm
jesdraggon

well, in theory, that's kindergarten, Kaplan
2:51 pm
Nancy Boy

nothing to be ashamed of, Jes ;) I think it embarrasses some of the men in the chat sometimes though!
2:52 pm
jesdraggon

ah... yeah, i guess it might. i guess i just tend to assume that everyone here is laid back and tolerant, unlike in the rest of the internets!
2:52 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I don't get embarrassed because I am beyond gender.
2:52 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I mean, my babble persona.
2:52 pm

heh. i've never met a null before...
2:52 pm

I'm very lucky that it IS so tolerant, Jes! It's lovely. Every time someone asks after Leo, like you did, I get so proud and happy.

Look for Hollywood Squares.
2:57 pm
Nancy Boy

will do, Kaplan. What type of humour, would you say? I'm a huge Eddie Izzard fan
2:57 pm
Kaplan the Magne

It was kind of wink wink in mainstream media, because he had this searing wit and mannerisms, but gay was never talked about in those days
2:58 pm
Kaplan the Magne

One liners on Hollywood Squares, some tonight show appearances, Uncle Albert on Bewitched, and the father in West Side Story.

gr6 is not a brand name. It was the inventor's name, but (like silhouette or leotard) has reached the status of general noun.

Nabisco, Keebler, store brands, all make "gr6 crackers"

Hi stidgmere. I was looking for the cat. Just found him in one of the bedrooms (where he is NOT allowed).
5:28 pm
stidgmere

That cat--hmm. Not here for sure. Rather quiet outside with few birds entertaining us at the moment.
5:30 pm
Jacula

It's dark(ish) outside here, stidgmere, apart from the 'snow light'. It's half past 11 at night, so no birds around, not even an owl.
5:31 pm
Jacula

If you need any grid clues just ask. I have finished the grid.
5:32 pm
stidgmere

Finished! Good your you Jacula. Snow again? We are well into spring without the insects that the buds are going to need. Everything is somewhat out of sync. Out of joint is the way Shakespeare put it I think. And not just the weather.
5:33 pm

re6/21?
5:33 pm
Jacula

Well done stidgmere. I know what you mean about seasons being out of kilter with nature.

ch 8 what you burn to barbeque meat
5:50 pm
Jacula

Your first ca word is French for 'snail' (not escargot), Stidg. The next two words have to do with dressage, turning a horse a half turn.
5:51 pm
Jacula

ch8 -(another perspective, artistic this time) = what you draw with.

6:20 pm

Looking for you jess
6:21 pm
Jacula

Jes - take oc5 (the paint colour) and then add 2 vowels and a consonant to the end. Rhymes with no** (sense or knowledge).
6:23 pm
Jacula

Example for the last 3 letters is this... if your boyfriend seems too keen on the woman in the sexy outfit at the party, you are jeal***.

How is this for embarisment . Our teacher asked as yesterday if we were first years as we are so immature. Then she booted out someone for being a smart arse
6:33 pm
Jacula

Words I always miss are niece, aunt and arena. No idea why!
6:34 pm
Jacula

Herin - being a menopausal 5o plus lady, I can quite understand how that happened.
6:35 pm
herinfernallady

We are second years. The level of immaturity is shocking
6:35 pm
stidgmere

Well, as someone said, this grid is not use friendly. Oh, I said it. In any case off to pursue other choices. Keep well.
6:35 pm
Jacula

Hence your tutor's lack of patience the, Herin.
6:36 pm
Jacula

stidg - you only had to ask if you wanted clues.
6:36 pm
herinfernallady

Jac not really. The teacher should not have to put up with back chat and talking when someone else is
6:36 pm
herinfernallady

By Stidmere
6:36 pm
Jacula

See you again soon, stidg and stay well.
6:37 pm
Jacula

Herin - maybe she was just waiting to see if it balanced itself out?
6:37 pm
herinfernallady

gosh knows but I like her. I hate people that talk when others are. It's rude
6:39 pm
Jacula

If she'd looked into the eyes of each one of her class, she'd already have worked out who would act stupid,who would hold back and who would never dream of acting stupid. It's not so hard to see, you know.
6:40 pm
herinfernallady

I am a bit sick of the 5 atitude. So the less in the class the better
6:40 pm
Jacula

Herin - sometimes, people who interrupt only do it because they were never given a chance to speak before.
6:41 pm
herinfernallady

No we are not talking about interrupters we are talking about people that talk to their friend next to them about random crap while someone is talking.
6:42 pm
Jacula

Oh, okay. That's different then, and the only answer is a machine gun?
6:42 pm
Jacula

Just tell them to SHUT UP!
6:43 pm
herinfernallady

Well I still say after being told a lot of times they deserve to be kicked out. No one at our age is told to be there

If that doesn't work, apologise for interrupting thel lecturer first and then tell the disrupters to either shut up or get out. You might find you are backed up by others in the class.
6:44 pm
herinfernallady

Jac I missed a lot of education in Highschool because of dipshits that wouldn't stop bullying or talking
6:45 pm
welki

i had to give a presentation yesterday, sized up the group pretty quickly (jac, you're right about that). had a couple of jokers in the class ... all adults. when they "acted up," i just stopped talking and looked their way -- which made everyone else look their way. hehehe, i'd picked up a couple of words from their convo and asked them to share the rest of the story :)
6:45 pm
herinfernallady

Teacher did that. And we are not talking about interuptions we are talking about someone talking to the whole class about the question we have been asked and someone else talking in the background about random crap they are doing on the weekend
6:46 pm
Jacula

Herin - welkki has got it in a nutshell.
6:46 pm
herinfernallady

GO Welki.
6:46 pm
welki

herin, it's really the speaker who should have (or gain) control of their venue, but i feel the same as you
6:47 pm
herinfernallady

Look if my teacher stopped talking or the person talking we would not get anything done. I am sorry but I have to agree with teh teacher kicking people out. The person in question is a right little smart mouth around her friends
6:47 pm
Jacula

Herin - I know Aussie culture is reknowned for being free roaming, but this is a roam too far. Stand up and make your voice heard! This is unacceptable in a class and the tutor should have stopped it by now.
6:48 pm
welki

it's disruptive and rude. a couple of years ago, i did have to boot a couple of gals out of a lecture. they complained, the class and co-instructors backed me up
6:48 pm
Jacula

If the tutor hasn't stopped it, go to the head of the college.
6:48 pm
herinfernallady

I just stopped talking. I am a loud person when I want to be heard. The dean is bloody hopeless at tiems
6:48 pm
welki

i have an idea *boing* herin, after class some day, why not approach the teacher and tell her that those rude folks are interfering with your learning ... maybe she's just oblivious to it
6:49 pm
welki

*looks at jac* herin loud? you think that's possible?
6:49 pm
stidmama

hello all, I am taking ten minutes to rest between study tasks. Stidkid #2 has a concert this evening, so not much time to play
6:49 pm
herinfernallady

I know that several students last year complained directly to the teacher. Did stuff all.
6:49 pm
herinfernallady

STIDIE you missed your mum (or is taht grandma)
6:50 pm
welki

then i guess you slog through this semester and hope you don't have to sit in her class after this one
6:50 pm
stidmama

so, how's the grid?
6:50 pm
stidmama

oh well, I'll see Mother later at the concert. Thanks for letting me know, lady.
6:50 pm
Jacula

welki - Herin had better be loud, after our adivce!
6:50 pm
herinfernallady

Tuesday is my hell day. All day with this person and not allowed duct tape
6:50 pm
Trifioso

the grid is a tricky little minx, stid!
6:50 pm
Jacula

Or even *advice.
6:51 pm
herinfernallady

O concert What you seeing Stid?
6:51 pm
Trifioso

I recommend a water pistol, herin. when miss mouthy gets going, a quick spray should shut her up. Hey, it works with the cats, right?
6:51 pm
welki

then approach the dean. you're there to learn, entitled to hear what the instructor says without distraction
6:51 pm
herinfernallady

How you Triffies
6:51 pm
stidmama

the middle schools around here get together once a year for a "massed bands" concert. It's a lot of fun.
6:51 pm
herinfernallady

Not with my cats it don't
6:51 pm
welki

lol ... then herin would charged with assault!
6:52 pm
stidmama

yes, I agree with welki -- the students who WANT to learn deserve to have an environment that supports them.
6:52 pm
Jacula

Herin - is she just a loudmoputh, or just she just not agree with your opinions?
6:52 pm
herinfernallady

Awesome Stid
6:52 pm
herinfernallady

Awesome Stid
6:52 pm
Jacula

Sorry, had to ask that.
6:52 pm
herinfernallady

Jac she is a loud mouth. It's her nature
6:53 pm
herinfernallady

Hey if she didn't agree with my opnions not my issue. I am just not allowed to bring the fabric tape to class and taping her mouth shut
6:53 pm
Trifioso

I think it sounds like two different things. I don't know what can be done if a student is discussing material in the course - talking about weekend plans is another matter
6:54 pm
herinfernallady

o knows the couch is eating me. Slowly falling asleep
6:55 pm
Jacula

Try not to mix personal feeling up with class discussions for the dissertation.
6:56 pm
Trifioso

dread - time for the olympics. Usually I can't wait for the games, and watch as much as I can....but oh, the coverage has been SO POOR this time around that watching them brings no joy at all. Not enough of the actual events, too many fillers and exposes on polar bears. yeuch
6:56 pm
Jacula

The dissertation is all yours and has nothing to do with group or class politics.
6:56 pm
herinfernallady

I don't know can someone help me the couch is eating me
6:58 pm
stidmama

*bounces on couch to make it let lady go*
6:59 pm
herinfernallady

Trifs last night we had ice skating on. This is what Ed the man I loath and commentator and his co host Mike said "" olloy said "they don't leave anything in the locker room these blokes", before a laughing McGuire added "they don't leave anything in the closet either".
7:00 pm
PinnyPoppins

can anyone help me with the re6/18?
7:00 pm
Trifioso

EXCELLENT!
7:00 pm

Oh and then they followed it up by a Brokeback Mountain comment to boot.
7:00 pm
LuvWordGames

re 6/18 got up again
7:01 pm
Jacula

Can I just mention here that I have NO interest in olympics of any kind, and haven't watched any. I did mention that I was sad the 'young boy' on the luge died at the start, but saying hat made me 'an old woman' apparently, since he was 21.
7:01 pm

I just can't stand how structured it is now - I miss when they used to show all the competitors, not just the russian, the american, and the chinese....sigh
7:02 pm
herinfernallady

Jac I have no interest due to lack of coverage and time it is on.
7:02 pm
Jacula

I like curling... watch it a lot actually!
7:04 pm
Jacula

I don't 'do' sport, never have.
7:04 pm
welki

lol .. i was really interested in the curling because a co-worker was on one of the teams headed towards the olympics. when her team lost, i lost interest. (that said, i still take a peek every now and then)
7:04 pm

7:06 pm

My mother was always told not to go near Soho when she was young. It was dodgy and the property prices were really cheap. Yes she is kicking her self over not buying there
7:29 pm
herinfernallady

Hi Min
7:30 pm
cybernan

we usually stay near Paddington for the ease of getting to and from the airport. This year we only had a few days and spent our time in the city centre, toured Marlybone and went to Greenwich.
7:30 pm

Still is dodgy Herin ;)
7:31 pm

no comment
7:31 pm
herinfernallady

Darn it i have to get up and move before i completly sleep
7:31 pm
Nancy Boy

although, Soho has the advantage of being the 'acknowledged' dodgy part of London. It's a commercial kind of dodgy. Truth is, this whole city is dodgy after dark!
7:32 pm

plus a plural
8:29 pm

they can watch via nbc, but they also have CTV, which we dont have access to in Florida. Scrabbs can see it in NY

Good evening to everyone. finished this morning but wanted to drop by and say hi.
8:31 pm
Bugsaw

No pippin, tell your Dad you are correct. We are watching it on a Canadian network CTV as well as TSN and anotaher sports one called TNEP or something. NBC is the last one to choose because they only give biased reviews on the US athletes and show only the top ones
8:31 pm
redturtlehead

I am finding the grid to be a bit errr, hard.
8:32 pm
pippingeek

i thought it would be a ctv thing
8:32 pm
Bugsaw

this grid is full of ridiculous words red. I am done now if anyone wants clues from a bad cluer who is watching the skating at the same time.... :)
8:32 pm
redturtlehead

I am at exactly half way 72/72
8:33 pm
pippingeek

the comment that inspired the debate was an nbc commenter talking repeatedly about "americans" rather than us citizens, and he thought canadians would be offended since "they are americans too"
8:33 pm
Bugsaw

keep going red
8:33 pm
pippingeek

my dad thought, that is, not the commentator
8:34 pm
redturtlehead

I dont think Canadians consider them selves Americans, even if they live in North America.
8:34 pm
Bugsaw

ROFL pippin! Canadians are MUCH more offended by being called Americans!! We have our own unique identity and are proud of it.
8:34 pm

NBC's Olympic™ coverage sucks eggs ..
8:34 pm
redturtlehead

Not a fan of the US snowboarding "Uniforms" too casual and baggy...
8:34 pm
pippingeek

that's kind of what i thought, that being part of north america isn't the same as being american
8:35 pm
Bugsaw

for instance, Americans vote for who they want to win an election. Canadians vote thinking, Well I can't let that idiot get elected so....
