Did the give Hurt Locker Best Picture because they were tired of looking like a bunch of America-hating elitists, or because they were inwardly seething with jealousy over James Cameron's phenomenal success?

12:20 am
Douglas

MLF, it depends on what one means by real. On the one hand, I've heard a lot of military people mock the details of the movie. On the other hand, it seems to give people a feeling of what it might be like to be there. So yes, I suppose.
12:20 am

if you can make a word from two different tiles, babble says it's from the higher or lefter one by default
12:44 am
MLFAN17

PU 6
12:44 am
westford

it does? there are default rules in babble? lol
12:45 am
joshuavorbis

so when you're looking for something from the lower or more right-ish tile, oftentimes it will start from that tile and at some point incorporate the other identical tile later in the word

jillibus

sigh
2:27 am
flosey

2:27 am
Haz1558

Or does Queen Elizabeth refer to the first?
2:27 am

2:58 am
jillibus

2:58 am
flosey

2:58 am
Haz1558

The sedon pu6 removes one of the double consonants from the pu7/44.
2:59 am
flosey

add a vowel to the ending
2:59 am
Haz1558

That should be the second pu6..
2:59 am
jillibus

no, I don't have the 7
3:00 am
Haz1558

pu7/44 o a cat followed by the first three letters (backwards) of the Beatles submarine.

Haz1558

Is that really him?
3:30 am
FMitch

He has certainly improved with age!

lynxxx

You didn't see him at the Oscars then Haz - think he has regressed
3:30 am
flosey

yes lyn, he's showing signs of aging
3:31 am
FMitch

It was kind of Haz to let him attend the oscars wasn't it?
3:31 am
Haz1558

No, didn't see any of the Oscars. Did he really have red hair? Whoever cut his hair in that picture needed more practice.
3:32 am
flosey

pretty bad hair!
3:32 am
Haz1558

Maybe it was a candid shot taken before the hairdresser had finished. Perhaps it was a work in progress.

6:04 am
PinnyPoppins

but there're usually a bunch of helpful folk willing to give clues if necessary
6:05 am
guernseygirl

I am still at the stage of having to look at yesterday's wordlist to learn some of the more unusual words.
6:05 am
guernseygirl

but the clues are often really helpful.
6:05 am
PinnyPoppins

i wouldn't worry about that - i've been playing for six months and still find dozens of words i don't know each day

Yes, i am. It's very useful, but can be very frustrating when i think I've used every combination of letters but find I still need 6 et words
6:08 am
guernseygirl

Incidentally, who is lickety?
6:09 am
ursh

worst is when you get the list and find you have the plural but not the singular
6:10 am
guernseygirl

sometimes i find it useful to go down my own list and check on plurals
6:10 am

lickety is a nice man from Australia whose wife plays under the name Mr President and he kindly set up his clue page
6:11 am

Such a great idea. Thank you Mr Presiden'ts husband
6:11 am

yep God Bless Lickety
6:12 am

Have you been doing this for long?
6:12 am

had to check - since sept 2006
6:13 am
guernseygirl

Wow. i'm hoping my present addiction will wear off. i've only been at it for a month but its taking up far too much time.
6:14 am
guernseygirl

especially as i really enjoy the chat as well.
6:14 am

no the addiction tends to stick and I have to look every day and have a go
6:15 am

I'm trying not to give into the temptation to go professional.
6:17 am

I think you only get to see the tile stats for a certain number of weeks - thereafter you only see the grid and the number of words
6:18 am
guernseygirl

That's right. That's when i started to use Lickety.
6:19 am

Oh OK - but sometimes lickety does not post - and going pro is not too expensive and it is once off for life - so worth it i think
6:20 am
guernseygirl

I can see that there are some groups of people who get to know each other really well, which is nice.
6:20 am

Oh you have a ginger "girl"?
6:23 am
guernseygirl

Yes. Only one in four, i gather. She's very very naughty - has made holes in the stair carpet by pulling out the threads
6:25 am
ursh

interesting that ginger fur colour can be more common in males - i believe tortoiseshell is always female
6:27 am
guernseygirl

Actually, Violet has one black whisker. Yes, i think that's right about tortoiseshells. Are cats popular in SA. They are the most common pet over here.

7:04 am

crossy, same here. And I tell my kids, if they want to buy something that needs ironing, they must iron it themselves.
7:04 am
crosshair

last time i saw the iron,it was functioning as a bookend on one of the bookcases
7:04 am

I actually sort of like ironing - it is a good mindless task, and I always get a great feeling of a job well done when it is finished, since you can see how nice everything looks right away
7:05 am

last time here was when there was a little dent in one of my love's canoe paddles. I believe he used it to get the dent out.

crossy, so did mine! She was still alive when our son was born and she came over to help while I had to stay at the hospital. When I came home, everything was ironed! Underwear! Clean rags!

I was baffled but truly grateful, grin.

7:08 am

she told me she just folded everything on the ironing table, and couldn't help herself putting the iron on even the cleaning rags. She was sweet, I was really sorry when she died. She didn't judge me for not ironing :)

depends on if you want another drama or just feel generous.

Trifioso

technically, I do pass the school on my way to work....but if I keep bailing her out, she is NEVER gonna remember this stuff!
7:12 am

if you really want my advice, drop it off, lol. You are never going to reeducate her. Or anyone that adult. Save your energy for something better.

I don't, crossy. Either he gets up, or he is late and must come in extra early the next few days. The school is pleasantly strict. Our son tends to get out of bed, put out the alarm and go back to bed. He is the only one who can change that.

7:49 am

it is amazing, btw. I wanted to refrain from binge eating for Lent. Having serious eating disorders, this is usually a disaster. But so far it is just working! I have been ill, been under stress both emotionally and from money issues, and I haven't binged once.

Good work, Sprite!

Gives me hope things can be changed for the better. Changing your habits for 40 days is long enough to build up a better habit, they say.
7:51 am
sprite

thanks :D
7:52 am
sprite

the bad thing about eating disorders is that you still need to eat. If you are addicted to smoking, you quit smoking fully. Drinking, no more alcohol. Gambling, no more gamling. But with eating, you can't just say no more food. It is tricky.
7:52 am
hego

As someone who quit smoking, I understand what you're going through. You can do it.
7:53 am
sprite

thanks hego! And wtg on quitting smoking! Not easy at all.
7:53 am
hego

Never thought of that Sprite. Interesting.
7:53 am
hego

I quit years ago, but it was the hardest thing I ever did. A true addiction.
7:54 am
sprite

that was why I thought of doing it for Lent. Not some diet or something low in calories to take the place of bingeing. But 'simply' quitting eating snacks in any form, or overeating anything in general. Not finding solutions to keep the habit, but to really quit it.
7:54 am
hego

As you said, it's not about quitting something, it's about making new habits. Healthy ones.
7:55 am
hego

You can learn to love veggies. lol
7:56 am
sprite

that is so true, hego. And I can feel there is power in doing it during Lent. Some communual energy from other people trying to change things for the better, maybe.

oh I do love veggies. Most of them anyway. My love is a marvellous cook.

hi mm
8:21 am

yeah there often are some of those in recipes, that is why I ask. When I know exactly what it is, I can try and find it here.
8:21 am
Nef

when we have our prenatal clinic days, we're working with a low income population so we serve a lunch each clinic day. I usually make soup, but some times I look for something different.
8:21 am

8:22 am

this is fast and easy nef..you can do it it large batches and is cost effective
8:22 am

Hello. Crossy - is that like the dry stuffing mix we have here in UK, i.e. Paxo sage & onion stuffing?
8:22 am

yes,paxo will work fine also

hi jac

Thanks.

8:23 am

hey, sprite, if you want something that's really a cultural difference, I live in Minnesota and we have something that no other part of the country has I guess. It's called "hot dish!"
8:23 am
sprite

sounds exiting, Nef, what is it?
8:23 am
sprite

hi Jac *hugsss*
8:24 am
BabbleRabble

I use my meatloaf for tire blocks when parked ... have to keep it our in the open too or I get charged with having a concealed weapon
8:24 am
Nef

that's the name of what the rest of the country calls "casseroles". A one dish meal
8:24 am
Judi

Lol, nef! Does "hot dish" work at the local strip club?
8:25 am
sprite

hm Kraft only has chocolate, biscuit and soft cheese products in the netherlands.
8:25 am

BR, you just described my coffee cake. A friend once broke a fork on mine
8:26 am

8:26 am

Jacula

sprite (hugs) - My son's g/f often complains about the amount of stuff you can't get in the Netherlands. She went home after this last visit with lots of Cheddar cheese, salt & vinegar crisps and Galaxy choc bars.
8:27 am
sprite

crossy, what does it contain? Bread crumbs and herbs and spices, or something more?
8:27 am
dalmatian5

Does it come in a block like cream cheese?
8:28 am
crosshair

the premade stuffings (sovetop and paxo) generallly contain bread crumbs,sage,onions and various herbs and spices
8:28 am
crosshair

comes in blocks or tubs
8:28 am
sprite

oh my, good cheddar cheese, almost impossible to come by here. We are lucky to have a great cheese shop close by. I think we must come and visit you as well, Jac ;)
8:28 am
Nef

which one, sprite? the hot dish or the casserole? They both describe a meal that is made all at once and contains a starch (usually pasta) a sauce (often creamy, but also can be a tomato sauce), a meat (usually ground beef) and some veggies.
8:29 am
sprite

ok it might be called paneermeel here, will check.
8:29 am
dalmatian5

I am certainly going to try the pasta recipe. I absolutely love pasta dishes!
8:30 am
BabbleRabble

my meatloaf likely would be tastier if I used less fast drying concrete.

hi pk; I don't think you'd ever catch a Minnesotan saying the word casserole! (we might write it, but not say it!)
8:31 am
Nef

hi dalmation
8:31 am
pk

kind of like a southerner saying pop instead of coke, nef
8:31 am
crosshair

mm sprite,i cannot read that but it looks almost like peameal or cornmeal to me
8:31 am
sprite

Nef, the stovetop stuffing. Trying to find a substitute or the actual thing here in holland.
8:32 am
Judi

Don't they have something called Kefir in the Netherlands? I know it's not like creme cheese, but something in between sour creme and soft cheese.
8:32 am
crosshair

is paxo available for you sprite?
8:32 am
sprite

hi dalmatian
8:32 am
crosshair

that would work jidi
8:32 am
sprite

they do, judi, it is Turkish.
8:33 am
Judi

Ah. Ty, Sprite. Shows you how much I know.
8:33 am
sprite

am afraid not, crossy
8:33 am
hydra

I'm sure sprite would taste fine without Paxo, cross (LOL)
8:33 am
Nef

isn't kefir a sort of liquid yogurt?
8:33 am
sprite

hehehe no additions necessary for making me tasting great, thanks
8:33 am
Judi

I thought the Turkish version was Labni (althought I know that's made with yogurt).
8:33 am
crosshair

lol the stuffing is the base of the entire meatloaf,otherwise you would just used crushed corn flakes or craker crumbs hydra
8:33 am
sprite

it is between yoghurt and soft cheese
8:34 am
hydra

Hiya sprite. Long time no see
8:34 am

Hi everyone - I love to just sneak in and listen to all the good ideas everyone shares.
8:34 am

Isn't it made out of mare's milk - or am I thinking of something else?
8:34 am
crosshair

it is fun indeed dalmation
8:35 am
Nef

I don't know what kefir is, but I can get it at the health food stores here and I drnk it (it's flavored)
8:35 am
hydra

Does it taste good Nef?
8:36 am
crosshair

it shows that north america takes for granted all the things on our store shelves
8:36 am
Judi

Psst, hydra: Kefir is hideous.
8:36 am
sprite

I think it is made from a little plant or seed, kefir. It is milklike.
8:36 am
Nef

it's like a liquid yogurt. It tastes like that too
8:36 am
crosshair

my brother sould sell his soul for some peanut butter in costa rica lol
8:36 am

8:38 am

Costa Rica? Don't they grow a lot of nuts down there? He could make his own nut butter.
8:38 am

No prepared stuffing??? Just crush up some cat food.
8:42 am
sprite

lollll Judi
8:43 am
crosshair

lol judi
8:43 am
crosshair

sprite it is also very good if you crush up some corn flakes and spice the same way
8:44 am
Judi

Beef flavoured cat food, of course.
8:44 am
crosshair

i use crushed spiced corn flakes for a coating for my chicken cordon bleau;)
8:45 am
sprite

am copying it all into a word document, this is going to be great. I might even try and cook this myself and surprise my love. It doesn't look like I have to be on my legs for very long for this recipe.
8:45 am

better than cat flavoured beef
8:45 am

cheese? send some here too!
8:52 am

true, only it becomes crazily expensive that way
8:53 am

Yes, I suppose so. Customs, duty. Well, if you want something bad enough, you'll just have to smuggle it or buy it on the black market.
8:55 am

I don't think there's any restrictions about transporting cheese. Just meat, fruit, vegetables & plants. And explosives, weapons, blah blah blah.
9:10 am
sprite

cheese is the food of gods
9:10 am
Nef

that would make sense, Judi. I don't think that cheese would be an illegal substance as it can't be planted, contagious, addicting or destructive

i think i've just tried anything that could come in between so i'm going to say you're right dc
3:00 pm
Flask1

thanx DC
3:01 pm
hurshy

i think a dvorak should have the letters in that order, since qwerty does
3:02 pm
dcseain

i switched to Dvorak in 1996 - much happier with it, and i have better accuracy with it. I also realized that with QWERTY, the right hand does nothing at all.
3:02 pm
tfgrrl

and dc you've gotta stop using polysyllabic words, cuz it gets me all excited and I can't concentrate on the grid.
3:02 pm
hurshy

but also, did you guys know that they originally were going to make keyboards alphabetical, but the early typewriters couldn't handle how fast secretaries were typing, and so qwerty was invented to slow them down, which it did, but only temporarily, but then they improved keyboards so it didn't matter, but by then everyone was used to qwerty and we are stuck with it to this day!
3:02 pm
dcseain

LOL
3:03 pm
tfgrrl

At first I thought it was a composer
3:03 pm
dcseain

yes, the evolution of keyboards is fascinating.
3:03 pm
tfgrrl

I didn't know that, that's typical.
3:03 pm
lynxxx

I've got 3 cat adverbs - but they are actually related to a plant
3:04 pm
dcseain

Dvorak is also the name of a composer, yes.
3:04 pm
dcseain

cat?
3:04 pm
lynxxx

pu words
3:04 pm
hurshy

how can there be 3 adverbs??????
3:05 pm

I hate hate hate the screen keyboard on my phone, but my new Droid has both. I don't see how people can type on the little tiny keys.
3:05 pm

there's a pu cat other than puma? hm....
3:05 pm

ah, the pu4 that is a bodily fluid?
3:06 pm
hurshy

thanks lynxxx, that brings me up to 90%!
3:06 pm
lynxxx

depends how you say it I guess
3:07 pm
hurshy

the bodily fluid when unmodified by any endings is only a pu3
3:07 pm
Vicuna

Bodily fluid is a 3 letter word.
3:07 pm
Vicuna

Hello, all.
3:07 pm

i don't think i've seen that word used for cat except in that one book.

3:08 pm

so, the cat word is unknown in the dialect here, apparenty
3:09 pm
hurshy

well... it has fallen out of favor due to other associations :(
3:09 pm
dcseain

ty for the clarificatin, vi
3:09 pm
lynxxx

really? we say "here pu**" when calling cats here
3:09 pm
Vicuna

Well, I think it's taken on taboo connotations because ...
3:09 pm
Vicuna

Hursh beat me to it again, lol!
3:09 pm
hurshy

we think far too much alike!
3:09 pm
dcseain

alaways with a y on the end here, and still not very common.
3:10 pm
tfgrrl

That's cuz you say fanny
3:10 pm
dcseain

and rarely used for cats anymore, come to think of it, though it still carries that meaning.
3:11 pm
Vicuna

But we have pu5 willows blooming here right now! =)
3:11 pm
lynxxx

I/we don't use fanny all that much actully tfg
3:12 pm
dcseain

pu5 willow is exceedingly rare here - it's mostly not cold enough for it.
3:12 pm
tfgrrl

Really? What about u hurshy? Maybe I've been misinformed.
3:12 pm
dcseain

fanny is known here, but slightly antiquated.
3:13 pm
tfgrrl

Ya, but in the US fanny is your bum, not so elsewhere is what I was told.
3:14 pm
hurshy

i'm officially american. i'm only british in spirit.
3:14 pm
lynxxx

That is right tfg, but we still don't use the word very much
3:14 pm
Vicuna

Oh fanny means a neighboring district in some dialects? Intriguing. Must research!
3:15 pm
bichon

Wait, we don't use fanny or bum, but heinie or butt
3:15 pm
tfgrrl

Well, I guess it used to, thanks for the update lynx, like to um, stay on top of things.
3:16 pm
tfgrrl

You don't say bum bichon?
3:16 pm
dcseain

few in NA do for that usage
3:17 pm
bichon

Not in the northeast. We use heinie cause hubby is German or tushie cause I'm Jewish or butt
3:18 pm
bichon

But I do have "CA grandkids and I suppose I'll have to use other words around them
3:18 pm

3:19 pm

US English has absorbed a lot of Yiddish

In polite company, I'd use bottom
3:19 pm

Wow, derriere must be French.

My favorite euphemism was used in a yoga class I took once. They insisted on referring to our "sitbones."
3:19 pm
dcseain

i've heard that term - i always want to giggle at it
3:20 pm
tfgrrl

*giggling* I think I had an elementary teacher who said that
3:20 pm

They were always telling us to sit "Indian style" on the floor too, which I never understood.
3:21 pm
dcseain

yes, the muscles over the bones
3:21 pm
bichon

Or "tailor style". Who knew any tailors
3:22 pm

4:19 pm
Nef

guernsey, pu** 4/6 is fluid from an infected wound. There is a pu7/44 which could be a cat + and archaic song; then pu 6/30 is a cat + adverb ending
4:20 pm

Nef

NOW I have the pu6/30 after the 8! Take a cons out of the middle of the pu7/44!
4:26 pm
Flask1

what do you mean??
4:27 pm
Nef

If it's the pu 6/30 after the pu8/50, take a consonent out of the middle of the pu 7/44 a few words farther down
4:28 pm
guernseygirl

It's the one like a cat +an old fashioned song, but you take out a doubled letter in the middle.

My first car was a 1971 Pontiac Firebird, blue metalic paint with white leather interior. I paid cash for it; it was beautiful, but a lemon.
5:49 pm

I was a County Health nurse and that thing knew the ditches better than the road: powerful engine, body was way too light

5:51 pm

my Sunbeam was secondhand and I had it in about 1964. I felt so cool driving around with the top down and a white chiffon scarf on my head
5:51 pm

5:53 pm

Is that a taste or smell?
9:40 pm
dcseain

yes, when you swirl it in the glass, it's slow to flow back down the sides, so it's viscous, and in this case, a tad on the sweet side

10:24 pm
mkg

time for bed anyway i guess. but welcome to any other clues. i wanted to get half way and have only 105 words. so clues please! missing 7 of the 7s. and have 10 or 40 sixes. so clue away.

10:27 pm

10:29 pm

Pippin - something else to remember re your restaurant waiting staff... most are Uni students and, one day, they might be your surgeon, psychiatrist, consultant, radiologist etc.
10:30 pm
pippingeek

true, but i also believe it shouldn't matter - i have an almost phd and i'm amazed at the number of people who think it's okay to treat me like s*** because i have a "menial" job
10:30 pm
dcseain

up*4
10:31 pm
pippingeek

and they would treat me different if they knew and that is totally lame
10:31 pm
Jacula

Unless your waiting staff display that they are numbskulls, don't treat them like they are. But, if they are numbskulls, don't forget that if you do piss them off they WILL either spit or pee in your food.
10:31 pm
pippingeek

or worse!
10:31 pm
dcseain

years ago, in Montreal, we were tipping at the then-15% common here, but learned after the fact that 10% was common there. If we wanted another cuppa after paying, they were nowhere to be seen. LOL
10:31 pm

i've never done anything like that, btw
10:32 pm
Jacula

LOL Pippin, I believe you.
10:34 pm
mkg

need first qu 6 please.
10:35 pm

Pippin - I don't treat anyone differently, unless they compel me to. I was talking generally from my own xperience of what you call 'menial' jobs and my daughter's.

Thanks, flosey, I have that as the 2nd se6-24. Need the 1st.
11:31 pm
jillibus

1st se6/24 sounds like a blue shampoo -- add the sometime vowel and a cons to the previous word
11:31 pm
flosey

wow West, that's some mean looking machine
11:31 pm
rururocks

11:34 pm

these themes are so interesting..I would never have known who Barris is or what he does
11:34 pm
jillibus

ruru is being impossible. Dylan, nip his ankles and teach him to behave
11:34 pm
flosey

I'd never heard the name
11:34 pm
westford

ouch ouch ouch
11:36 pm
jillibus

I always look forward to seeing what others post for the theme -- too often disappointed that few do
11:37 pm
westford

it should be a rule that whoever suggests the theme should post...
11:37 pm
flosey

you'd think they would, west
11:37 pm
westford

but then again if they suggest it they probably know all about it
11:37 pm
jillibus

they often don't!
11:37 pm
flosey

all the more reason to post
11:38 pm
jillibus

I mean they often don't post
11:38 pm
Sudokuaddict

can i get a clue for the last te6 pls?
11:39 pm

11:41 pm
Jacula

Jilli - sorry that I often disappoint re themes.I tend to save my creative energy for my blog.
11:41 pm
westford

maybe we could have a birthday month and include everyone at the beginning
11:42 pm
Sudokuaddict

thank you
11:42 pm
jillibus

your choice, jac -- never mind
11:42 pm
flosey

that's what our south end seniors do west, April is birthday month
11:42 pm
westford

I mostly copy and paste jac
11:42 pm
Jacula

West - some of the themes suggested were suggested 2 years or more ago.
11:42 pm
westford

no kidding I wondered
11:43 pm
westford

well I am learning things and that's always good
11:43 pm
flosey

yes, Jac, and it says in Sprite's list, (save for next year) or words to that effect
11:43 pm
westford

jac I'd love to see your blog if you don't mind
11:43 pm
jillibus

I just enjoy finding out about the themes, and even if they're repeated (which is seldom) there are other choices to make. Witness ambigrams.
11:43 pm
Jacula

Copy and paster is fine, so long as you proof read it first and it IS a subject you actualy know something about. If not, I suggest, you should not suggest it.
11:44 pm
westford

I haven't made any suggestions..I just meant I'm not being creative when I cut and paste
11:45 pm
jillibus

I think wst means we copy and paste from wikipedia or some such source when we post our icons, not when we suggest themes
11:45 pm
westford

and I do read first lol
11:45 pm
flosey

I made a suggestion once, it wasn't used, can't remember what it was
11:45 pm
westford

well I'll be flosey !!
11:45 pm
Jacula

I'll make an amendment there, you can suggest a theme if it's something you woould like to know about. But you should then find out about it yourself.
11:45 pm
flosey

must have been something very thought provoking
11:45 pm
jillibus

flosey, there was a time when sprite's computer was on the fritz
11:46 pm
westford

very true jac
11:46 pm
flosey

good idea
11:46 pm
flosey

was probably during that time jilli
11:46 pm
westford

kitchen floods flosey?
11:46 pm
jillibus

jac, we're not talking about suggesting themes, we're talking about following the suggestions
11:46 pm
flosey

could well have been, west
11:47 pm
westford

how are you jac have you been up all night?
11:47 pm
Jacula

jilli - slapped wrist for me then for being away long enough to have been talking to Other Half and then coming back to chat. I'll shut up then. Goodnight.
