2:08 am
herinfernallady

Babblets are words found in Babble not used normally in every day life
2:09 am
Douglas

Babblets are words that appear in Babble grids on a regular basis, but don't appear very often in regular conversation...like etna the volcano, and inia, the hairy-snouted fresh water dolphin

2:24 am
m9f9l

2:24 am
Douglas

It means I have either 11 words (or the maximum) from every tile
2:24 am
sandyloo

multiple no blank tiles
2:25 am
Douglas

Actually, it's minimal no blank tiles, as I started on a quest to get exactly one word from every tile, then 2, then 3, and so on

Oh dear. She obviously wants to make sure you don't waste the insurance money
3:15 am
Atalante

very silly. she's had a day and a half of quite dramatic effects from whatever it was!
3:15 am

and being a dog and all, she has't learned a thing from it
3:16 am

absolutely *facepalm*. yesterday was taking her every hour from 3am to 10pm!

there's a little cocker locally who gets muzzled for walks cos she eats manky things
3:19 am

3:19 am

we have one in the neighbourhood too. Silly dog eats reeds. Had to be operated on bowels once because it all got tangled up. Now he walks around muzzled.
3:20 am
sprite

isn't it :) Really hope Haz will see it, she will like it.
3:20 am

Hobbit hardly ever has any real effects from the stuff she eats. This was obviously something quite spectacularly nasty
3:22 am

later this morning Terra must see the vet, for the yearly shots.

oooooo! he will be brave :)

yup
3:28 am

3:29 am

wtg on you gals for finding the biggies. I have one 7 so far.
3:30 am

the are dangerous too as they can work themselves into the skin (usually via the foot pads) and cause nasty wounds etc.
3:30 am

yes, we always check Terra all over after a walk.
3:31 am

All well in the Hobbit world again?
4:15 am
Atalante

she's getting there. still not exactly back to normal, but she had some breakfast
4:16 am
Haz1558

Fingers crossed that all gets back to normal.
4:16 am
Atalante

I discovered what she'd eaten though ...
4:16 am
Atalante

starfish
4:16 am
Haz1558

What was it?
4:17 am
Haz1558

Ah well. There you go, probably not surprising that it would cause an upset tummy.
4:18 am
rubyfoo

they smell so nasty that I'm surprised she ate it!
4:18 am
Atalante

noooooo
4:18 am
Atalante

it was a fr5 one! I'd forgotten about that yesterday
4:19 am
Haz1558

Mr Haz would have worn you down with persistent questioning.
4:20 am
Haz1558

'Did you see Hobbit nosing around anything in particular' 'Did you notice her stopping at any particular point' 'Are you sure that you can't remember noticing anything unusual'
4:20 am
Haz1558

He had his training with Special Forces, I'm sure of it.
4:20 am
Atalante

I'd been racking my brains yesterday, but totally forgot the starfish. Until starfish-looking bits appeared this morning
4:21 am
Haz1558

Yes, starfish bits would jog the memory.
4:21 am
Haz1558

Starfish - the aide-memoires of the sea.

4:23 am
rubyfoo

but undigested ones are so beautiful!
4:23 am
Atalante

absolutely! I was very cross with the dog. this was alive, but stranded, so I threw it back into a nice pool, and before I could stop her, Hobbit ran after it and chomped it!
4:24 am

lol, ata!
4:24 am

No problem and it leads to the 9.
4:34 am
Atalante

how is NI today, Haz?
4:35 am
Haz1558

In terms of weather or the Saville report? Weather is fine, the report could go down like a lead balloon on all sides.
4:35 am
Atalante

Saville report I meant, but the weather is good too!
4:37 am
Haz1558

I don't know why it took so long or why it cost so much, except that multiple lawyers were involved. Those who were there knew what happened, or think they know, if the report says anything different it will be dismissed. Any attempt to prosecute will be EXTREMELY unpopular.
4:38 am
Atalante

and SO expensive!!
4:38 am
Atalante

200 million?
4:39 am
Haz1558

It's extraordinary. £190,000,000.
4:39 am
Atalante

just incredible. that would fund a few hospitals
4:40 am
Haz1558

Mostly into the pockets of lawyers, of course. I'm sure the families never dreamed that it would cost so much - I'd like to think that if they were given an estimate at the start, they might have declared that the money could be better spent elsewhere.
4:41 am
Atalante

you'd hope so, wouldn't you
4:42 am
Haz1558

What worries me is that it has the potential to divide people again and start the recriminations flowing. I don't know whether you've noticed but we have looooooong memories over here.
4:44 am
Atalante

just a bit!!
4:45 am
Haz1558

And frankly, if terrorists can get 'get out of jail free' cards in the name of peace, why on earth should we expect show trials of soldiers?
4:46 am

yes .... Sky is just comparing the report / consequences as similar to the trials at Nurenberg. Hmmm.

How lovely sandy - I have kept all my sheet music in the hope one day I will have a piano again.
4:52 am
Haz1558

Funnily enough, I've spent time last week taking stuff out of what passes for a loft here (storage areas under the roof). Why husband thought we needed to store 15 year old wallpaper is beyond me.
4:52 am

I am glad she had lessons and has kept it up
4:54 am

15 yr old wallpaper LOL! guess Mr H thought it might come in handy one day?
4:54 am

I don't know what he thought, but it's been thrown away.

She's fine - complaining about not having wallpaper in her kennel but fine apart from that.
5:07 am
Atalante

that's just outrageous. how could you!
5:07 am
Haz1558

It's too hard to get a plumb line done.
5:08 am
Atalante

you could always use paint effects instead
5:09 am
Haz1558

I'm hopeless with paint, I get too messy. Besides, think of the fumes.
5:09 am
Atalante

non-fumy paint, obviously!!!
5:10 am
Haz1558

I don't think paint will be enough, not now she's got the notion of wallpaper in her head.
5:10 am
Atalante

you'll have to get one of those laser plumblines
5:11 am
Haz1558

Oh, I never thought of that! I could put on my painting boiler suit, bring out the laser and I'd look like a CSI....
5:11 am
Atalante

yep!
5:12 am
Atalante

5:12 am
Haz1558

What about window treatments? Curtains, roller blinds?
5:13 am
Atalante

curtains I think. matching.
5:14 am
Haz1558

But no swags and tails. That's taking things too far and they're a bit passe (with an acute) now.
5:14 am
Atalante

no tails! are you going to chop Spangle's off before she's allowed her new decor?
5:15 am
Haz1558

It's already been chopped.
5:18 am
Atalante

wonder if you can get scratch and sniff wallpaper. dogs would love that!
5:20 am
Haz1558

I don't know. I'm currently trying to find a wallpaper that I saw featuring little Scotty dogs. I can't remember who made it.
5:20 am
Atalante

oh! I've seen curtains with silhouettes of dogs on. They were really really expesnsive and quite gorgeous

Hello!
5:37 am
LoriP

G'd morning Babblers. heh heh heh
5:37 am
FMitch

*takes the full force and falls backwards into the pool* :)))
5:37 am
Haz1558

(See what a model of restraint I am?) Of course, I've switched to under the desk, long arm typing mode.
5:37 am
Haz1558

How nice to see you!
5:38 am
LoriP

Haz has an A+ in defensive keyboarding.
5:38 am
FMitch

Thanks Lori, I needed a good wash down.
5:38 am
Haz1558

*smug*
5:38 am
LoriP

Have cannon, will travel. :)
5:38 am
NonoNanette

good morning Babblers
5:38 am
FMitch

*lobs a water balloon at Haz for being smug*
5:38 am
Haz1558

Good morning, Nono.
5:39 am
FMitch

Morning Nono
5:39 am
Haz1558

Hey! Ata gets away with being smug all the time!
5:39 am
LoriP

I trust that Hobbit has consumed some sort of creature again? Gee, did not see THAT coming.....
5:39 am
Atalante

a starfish *facepalm*
5:39 am
Haz1558

I suggest a smidgeon of smug and I'm doused.
5:40 am
LoriP

But mAta Hari is genetically related to Scientific fame! G'd Morning Nono! ***hug-A-saurus***
5:40 am
FMitch

LOL giggling away here at the last time yo were under the desk - don't make me mention it ;)
5:40 am
LoriP

lol, a starfish, very creative.
5:40 am
FMitch

Lovely to see you dearLori ((()))
5:41 am
Haz1558

Getting gag ready for FM....
5:41 am
FMitch

*mmmwfffh*
5:42 am
Atalante

yes, at least a bit different this time!
5:42 am
LoriP

You too FM, all of you. My self therapy is being sabotaged by the other personalities, but I'm sticking with it.
5:43 am
Haz1558

It's funny, but even with a gag on, FM's typing looks much as usual.
5:43 am
Atalante

lmao. I wasn't going to mention that ..
5:43 am
FMitch

ROFL - gee thanks Haz!
5:43 am
LoriP

Ooooh, that's gonna' leave a mark.
5:44 am
Haz1558

Isn't this nice? If Uniquity showed up we could overdose on happiness, but she's probably prosecuting in a trial as we speak.
5:44 am
Atalante

this the lady who tries to type papers and comes out with appears :)
5:44 am
FMitch

Actually I was testing out my grip of the Welsh language I will have you know.
5:45 am
FMitch

*le sigh*
5:45 am
Haz1558

Were you trying to sing a rousing chorus of Myfanwy?
5:45 am
LoriP

Indeed, she'll be off to work soon. She's a big girl now!
5:45 am
FMitch

stop it, I can't see the screen for laughing.
5:45 am
Haz1558

Isn't it great, Lori? I'm sure you're pleased she's got work.
5:45 am
FMitch

thanks goodness I don't have any mascara on.
5:46 am
Atalante

Crwth! Crwth!
5:46 am
Haz1558

Poor FM, blinded and gagged, she's just about incapable.
5:46 am
Haz1558

I'll see your crwth and raise you cwms!
5:47 am
FMitch

Uni is a great lady.
I huff you with ywis.
5:47 am
LoriP

If she's happy, I'm happy. She likes it, so what more could I want.
5:47 am
Atalante

so nearly in the PB, FM!
5:47 am
Haz1558

If she likes it, it's a bonus.
5:48 am
Haz1558

I know, FM is teetering on the edge of the PB, blinded, gagged... will she be able to steer clear?
5:48 am
FMitch

Thanks goodness that Andy has gone otherwise he would think I was a mad woman - laughing at the computer and thuming the keyboard with errant spelling mistakes!
5:48 am
Atalante

thuming keyboards sounds dangerous
5:48 am
FMitch

*thumping eve but I guess you knew that.
5:48 am
Haz1558

Thuming. Thumbing?
5:49 am
Haz1558

Is this the new typing method, use only thumbs?
5:49 am
FMitch

Oh god I hate this keybaord
5:49 am
LoriP

Uni's an old soul. FM will do the most shameless things to get in the PB.
5:49 am
Haz1558

It could be added to the ritual of nbt. Nbt with to. No blank tiles with thumbs only.
5:49 am
FMitch

Do not mention nbt - drive me nuts - what is the point?
5:49 am
Atalante

of course, "stupid" could be FM's creative typing of "nbt"
5:50 am
Trifioso

hello dear friends!
5:50 am
Haz1558

In Douglas's case, minimum blank tiles with thumbs only on a 300 word grid could see him chained to the keyboard for the whole day.
5:50 am
FMitch

*throws custard pie at Ata*
5:50 am
Haz1558

Hello Trif.
5:50 am
NonoNanette

hi Trif
5:50 am
FMitch

Hi Trif.
5:50 am
Trifioso

pie throwing? perhaps I should reconsider joining chog....
5:51 am
FMitch

Oh come on in Trif - the more the merrier :)
5:51 am
LoriP

I have MBT. Mornin' Tri
5:51 am
Haz1558

I'd stay under the desk, Trif. There's water and all sorts going about.
5:51 am
LoriP

Nono is so quiet, she's trying to convince us all she's working on the grid. :)
5:51 am
Trifioso

secondo is off on the class trip to DC...AMAZED she could fit on the bus, with the size of her attitude.....
5:52 am
NonoNanette

no Lori I'm too consumed with laughter at all of you
5:52 am
Atalante

MBT? Morning Brain Trauma?
5:52 am
Haz1558

Nono may well be working to beat gremlinn's time of 11 minutes to beat this thing.
5:53 am
Haz1558

If he were forced to do thumbs only, he'd be slowed up, wouldn't he?
5:53 am
NonoNanette

11 minutes? not in my world LOL
5:53 am
Atalante

I doubt it
5:53 am
Haz1558

Trif, just enjoy the peace while she's gone.
5:53 am
Trifioso

haz, are you serious? Gremlinn did this grid in 11 minutes???!!!
5:53 am
Haz1558

Yes, he did.
5:53 am
LoriP

Well mAta Hari, that also works. MBT in my case is Many Blank tiles, and I'm fine with that
5:53 am
FMitch

Allegedly he did yesterdays in 9 mins
5:53 am
Trifioso

amen to THAT, haz! we are all looking forward to that. 13 is *such* a fun age! (rolling eyes)
5:54 am
Atalante

I have CCABT
5:54 am
Haz1558

I'd race him, but I'm never up at flip.
5:54 am
Haz1558

Written in seriously tongue in cheek font.
5:54 am
Trifioso

cat clawing at blank tiles?
5:54 am
FMitch

constant and calculated all blank tiles?
5:55 am
Haz1558

CCABT. Can't care about blank tiles?
5:55 am
LoriP

CCBAT? Currently Chatting About Blank Tiles?
5:55 am
Atalante

well, couldn't care about, but near enough haz :)
5:55 am
FMitch

Think Haz has hit the nail on the head.
5:55 am
Atalante

but cat clawing is pretty spot on too!
5:56 am
Atalante

i'm currently on ccabt8
5:56 am
Haz1558

With to?
5:56 am
Haz1558

Or with af?
5:56 am
FMitch

Im on bt ver 4.8
5:56 am
Haz1558

Thumbs only or all fingers?
5:56 am
Trifioso

tips hat....
5:57 am
Haz1558

(What was FM's latest offering, I'm stumped?)
5:57 am
Atalante

CCABTAFWT8
5:57 am
LoriP

Haz wields a mighty hammer.
5:57 am
FMitch

I just stare at the screen and nothing gets filled in - apart from the chat.
5:57 am
Haz1558

I'm rapidly approaching FM's state of not being able to see the screen.
5:58 am
FMitch

I will have to upgrade soon so that I can stare at the tiles in multicolour.
5:58 am
LoriP

I know FM swore me to secrecy on this, but considering she types with her toes, all things being equal it's impressive.
5:58 am
Atalante

lmao lori
5:58 am
Haz1558

And she is so tall! That explains the typos, there's bound to be a loss of control halfway down the shins.
5:59 am
Haz1558

No wonder she doesn't want to babble in front of the cleaner.
6:00 am
Haz1558

Maybe when you've finished with your brace, Ata, you can lend it to FM to see if it helps.
6:00 am
FMitch

I do have to stay away from babble chat when he is here as I would sound like a demeted loonie.
6:00 am
LoriP

I know that breaking a promise is bad, but sometimes a little background is a good thing. It's toetally good work all things considered.
6:00 am
Haz1558

Although she'd need two, I suppose, otherwise her left foot won't be able to keep up with her right.
6:00 am
FMitch

*locks and loads .... and fires water balloon repeter cannon at Lori*
6:01 am
Atalante

she'd need 2 though ...
6:01 am
Haz1558

Lopsided typos are the worst.
6:01 am
Haz1558

See my post at 6.00. Ata.
6:01 am
LoriP

Not the repeater! ***Too late.....***
6:01 am
Atalante

I typed it at the same time, it just turned up later than yours!!
6:01 am
FMitch

just a little something I have been building in your abscence Lori.
6:01 am
Haz1558

So, we just need to find one other poor soul who's fallen down a rabbit hole.
6:02 am
Haz1558

How's David's hangnail, by the way?
6:02 am
FMitch

How about Atas slip on the rocks?
6:02 am
Atalante

Hobbit's ball fell down a rabbit hole one day
6:02 am
Haz1558

It was on his thumb, wasn't it? That would render babble with thumbs only really hard.
6:02 am
Atalante

I don#t know! he's away for the week! hurrah!
6:03 am
LoriP

lolol, I had read of his trauma. How does he do it? You loung about whilst he suffers so......
6:03 am
FMitch

BRB
6:03 am
Haz1558

I thought there was an extra levity in your postings, Ata.
6:03 am
Haz1558

Is he getting intensive treatment for the injury?
6:03 am
NonoNanette

no fair FM you cant sneak off to stop laughing
6:04 am
Haz1558

She's gone to check that the cleaner has put points on the toilet roll.
6:04 am
LoriP

BRB = Blank is Really Boring?
6:04 am

probably! he's up in oxford for the week, thank goodness. so I don't know *grin*

See! Babble Rabble has the proof of gremlinn's achievements in case of any doubt. Good morning, BabbleRabble.

Greetings BR
6:06 am
Haz1558

Hooray for the cleaner! Do you put the point back after you've (ahem) made use of the resource?
6:07 am
BabbleRabble

Howdy, FM
6:07 am
LoriP

mAta Hari could at least use crutches, or a walker or wheelchair, but a digit injury of that magnitude? I'd say some nursing and compassion is in order.
6:07 am
Haz1558

Or do you just save the pointy bit and stick it back on with sellotape each time?
6:07 am
FMitch

you have to be joking! It is also funny that he circles the plug on the edge of the sink with the chain - I mean there is a point of too muchness.
6:08 am
crosshair

good morning everyone;)
6:08 am
Atalante

apparently he goes to an alexander technique person, an osteopath and someone or other else each week!!
6:08 am
Haz1558

You mean, he lifts the plug out of the way of the sink? Round the tap?
6:08 am
LoriP

***talk of cleaning never fails to baffle me***
6:08 am
NonoNanette

morning Crossy
6:08 am

Good morning, crossy!
6:08 am

(((crossy))) - how was the outing yesterday?
6:08 am
LoriP

Mornin' crossy
6:08 am

I hear that Lori! This house does not know the meaning
6:08 am
LoriP

crossy's been outed???????? :)
6:09 am

Faints.
6:09 am

LOL!!!!!!!!
6:09 am

I knew I could count on you Nono. My Sista'!
6:09 am

outing was perfect fm :))
6:10 am
FMitch

Splendid, did you find a flower to adorn your love?
6:10 am
crosshair

but of course
6:10 am
LoriP

I needed 52 words about 40 minutes ago and oddly enough I still need 52 words. Would that be NBT, as in Neglected Blank Tiles?
6:11 am
crosshair

a nice pink wild flower
6:11 am
NonoNanette

could be Lori my stats be just the opposite of yours and have been that way for some time
6:11 am
Haz1558

I would think so, Lori. You're just a bad babbler, neglecting to aim for glory.
6:11 am
FMitch

we could go for the WGaFreNBT
6:11 am
FMitch

lovely crossy :)
6:12 am
Haz1558

FM has upped the stakes in the inpenetrable initials.
6:12 am
FMitch

and I shant translate them as I used a bad word in the middle.
6:12 am
LoriP

FM, break that one down if you please. left toe this time?
6:12 am
Haz1558

FM!
6:13 am
FMitch

Apologies again.
6:13 am
LoriP

I must brush up on my acronyms.
6:13 am
NonoNanette

ok with that clue i think i figured it out, FM you shock me
6:14 am
FMitch

Who gives a .... is the start but that is as far as I am going.
6:14 am
Haz1558

I think we need an intervention. All this toe typing has clearly had its effect.
6:14 am
LoriP

FM's naughty all the time. Don't be fooled by her innocent facade.
6:14 am
Haz1558

That's the thing. Half the babble world cares not a toss, the other half does. Nobody ever used to care.
6:15 am
FMitch

It is a free space so we can express if we like or not.
6:15 am
LoriP

lolol, that's so irreverent FM. I had forgotten how often Babble chat results in choking on coffee.....
6:16 am
Haz1558

It's a recent phenomenon, a game within a game but it frustrates me that it has to be explained over and over again.
6:16 am
FMitch

*pats Lori on the back*
6:16 am
NonoNanette

coffee? you have coffee and didnt offer me any? Lori, I'm hurt beyond words
6:16 am
LoriP

I don't get it Haz. Could you explain it to me?
6:16 am
FMitch

Bad bad Lori
6:17 am
Haz1558

And I suppose now that we have the all fingers and the only thumbs option the explanations will get even longer.
6:17 am
LoriP

***Hands Nono a piping hot cup of Maxwell House's finest***

6:17 am

NBT = I have got some words but not all. To which I'm always tempted to say. BD or DIC?
6:17 am
NonoNanette

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh thank you Lori!
6:17 am

you sound like a TV ad Lori!
6:17 am

***Great, mAta Hari choked twice in less than a minute***

FM! My sentiments exactly...I figured it out with your clue.
6:18 am
FMitch

Hello Annie!
6:18 am
LoriP

Annie of Brooklyn! G'd mornin'
6:18 am
Haz1558

We need ruru here to count up the people who care not a jot about nbt and those who think it's vital information.
6:18 am
Haz1558

Hello, Annie!
6:18 am
NonoNanette

hi Annie
6:18 am
FishFishGarden

howdy...is the grid as bad as it looks?
6:19 am
LoriP

FM, I should own stock in Maxwell House. I rarely buy take out coffee as it's way cheaper to thermos up, and take with me.
6:19 am
NonoNanette

Grid? what grid?
6:19 am
NonoNanette

hi Fish
6:19 am
Haz1558

No, it's a civilised grid. You have 10 minutes, 59 seconds to beat gremlinn's time.
6:19 am
LoriP

Mornin' Fish
6:19 am
FMitch

by the way I have superglued myself to Lori so that she can't escape us again for a while. This in itself could make for some interesting typing :))
6:20 am
LoriP

We're Siamese twins now? Call the tabloids so we can sell our story(ies). ***People would never believe it....***
6:20 am
FMitch

I never buy takeout coffee and instant works well for me otherwise I end up climbing the walls - can't take the caffine.
6:20 am
LoriP

Nono and I are vying for last place in the grid speed.
6:21 am
Haz1558

Clmibing up any walls glued to Lori would make for an interesting sight.
6:21 am
FMitch

I'm going to win that one then as I haven't started yet.
6:21 am
FMitch

We could get good water bomb coverage from up the wall.
6:22 am
NonoNanette

oh oh look out below!
6:22 am
FMitch

*hands Nono a big umbrella*
6:22 am
LoriP

Glued together AND armed. Babblers beware .......
6:23 am
NonoNanette

FM what are the flowers in your profile pic?
6:23 am
Haz1558

(Nice diverting tactic, Nono)
6:23 am
FMitch

Guess we should issue all babblers with those waterproof macs that you see at theme parks.
6:23 am
NonoNanette

hehee we'll see if it works
6:23 am
Atalante

how chic!
6:24 am
LoriP

That Nono has all the angles. Feigning interest in FM's posies to avoid being hit.
6:24 am
FMitch

The are Allium Moly - or common name Golden Garlic - the bees love them and they light up the garden.
6:24 am
Haz1558

See? It's worked!
6:24 am
FMitch

*splurges Haz*
6:24 am
Haz1558

Did you plant them yourself? Do they flower for long?
6:24 am
LoriP

FM's tiny attention span wins again.....
6:24 am
NonoNanette

I have a bunch of them in my front garden but had no idea what they were thanks!
6:25 am
Haz1558

Any smell? Edible?
6:25 am
FMitch

Nice try HAz - they were here when I moved in.
6:25 am
Haz1558

Help me out, people!
6:26 am
NonoNanette

I think they are a bulb type flower but not sure
6:26 am
LoriP

lololowf Now stands for Look Out Look Out Look Out we're Firing
6:26 am
FMitch

I thought they were going to be tulips as the leaves are identical. but they blossomed into those wonderful flowers.
6:27 am
LoriP

Of course Haz has wisely chosen the under the desk scenario, making her a more difficult target. I think the only way to draw her out wold be the George ploy.
6:28 am
FMitch

Lri can't we just fire and get rid of all those capitals
6:28 am
LoriP

Okay. FU? Firing Upon
6:29 am
FMitch

FU on everyone in a great bit ave of babbleness.

6:31 am

Haz, I did not know that FM was multi linguistic until you pointed it out.
6:31 am
Haz1558

Oh yes, she's got Welsh under her belt and everything.
6:31 am
LoriP

Ding Ding Ding! Annie of Brooklyn. ***Johnny, tell her what she's won*** :)
6:31 am
FMitch

If I actually made sense here you might not understand me anymore.
6:32 am
Haz1558

She can ywis and crwth with the best of them. She and Tom Jones are penpals.
6:32 am
LoriP

FM's very complex and I'm very shallow, so we compliment each other.
6:32 am
FMitch

we do indeed dear Lori :)
6:33 am
FMitch

As much as it pains me I have to be off
6:33 am
Haz1558

Have you got the superglue antidote?
6:33 am
LoriP

You can't go! We're glued together, and I don't wanna' go yet!
6:34 am

You did buy the antidote?
6:34 am

So so good to see you Lori, and bye all. Will be back later.

Herin, I just read it. Clearly, from testimonials, the technique works. The questions are why do hiccups occur and why does this work to halt them? There have been cases of people hiccupping for YEARS.

whenever i have hiccups, i just chug a glass of water in one breath. if i hiccup, i have to start over.
pretty much, anything you can do to reset your breathing pattern will get rid of them...
8:12 am

8:15 am
herinfernallady

Note to others don't inhale dinner then inhale desert
8:15 am
EvaNadine

when i get hiccups, it is often from eating too fast.

Apparently it does not grow in the Babble garden.
9:26 am

irish is proper noun
9:26 am

I don't think frisee is a proper noun. It is a type of salad green.
9:27 am
bichon

I've heard irish as a common noun. Usually connected the force of a hit baseball
9:27 am

Add a B and you would have a Frisbee - which is another annoying proper noun.

No not me - my son - you havent been around last couple days I guess - my son collapsed Sat - heart rate over 300 - we have been in the PICU - discharged finally last night

Sorry to hear that RD. Sounds like a pretty awful time.
9:40 am

9:40 am
Riverdance

*wide
9:41 am
Scrabbler

Was he given medication?
9:41 am
Riverdance

it was very scary - heart rate over 300 for 40 minutes - it got as high as 322
9:41 am
Scrabbler

Was he dizzy?
9:41 am
bichon

What causes something like that?
9:42 am
Riverdance

they gave him adenosine in the ED
9:42 am
Scrabbler

Electrophysiologic issue in heart's conduction system.
9:42 am
Riverdance

is now on atenolol to keep it slow and steady until they can get him in for the cath
9:43 am
Riverdance

he is stable and feels fine but no sports allowed - tough for my kid that is involved in everthing
9:43 am
bichon

I guess they use a pacemaker to deal with a problem like that?
9:43 am
Ormal

Gosh. That's so scarey, Mom. He must be under all sorts of restrictions right now.

Riverdance

9:43 am
bichon

Was he at home, in school
9:43 am
Riverdance

no pacemaker - they can do the correction if they find something when they do the cath
9:43 am
kje

9:43 am

No caffeine, etc. I assume they checked thyroid function?
9:44 am

9:44 am
Riverdance

my husband had taken him and two friends to a mini golf place when it happened
9:44 am
Riverdance

they did - first day it was abnormal then next day it was fine
9:45 am
Judi

Could that also be related to a wacky adrenal gland?
9:45 am
Scrabbler

How very frightening for all of you! Is there a children's hospital nearby?
9:45 am
Riverdance

good thing as close to the hospital ED - he then got sent up to another hospital
9:45 am
Scrabbler

Yes, Judi. A friend of mine just had surgery for pheochromocytoma, and she is a doctor. Weird, rare diagnosis.
9:46 am
Riverdance

Darmouth Medical Center is all specialties - they have a huge CHAD there - in fact my son was sent there when he was born - its an hour and a half from home - not bad
9:46 am
Scrabbler

I finally got your clue for ri5, kje.
9:46 am
bichon

River, I didn't realize you were Mom
9:46 am
Riverdance

He was born with a congenital heart defect that was repaired at 7 weeks old and has been fine ever since
9:47 am
Riverdance

I'm in disguise bichon - lol
9:47 am
Scrabbler

is there a cardiac electrophysiologist in town?
9:48 am
kje

she is at dartmouth - then they have everything
9:48 am
Riverdance

at Dartmouth there is a pediatric one but he wasnt in all weekend or yesterday - they faxed him the EKG runs and he was in agreement the procedure is needed
9:48 am
Scrabbler

I would assume so too.
9:48 am
kje

ok, listing for the last 2 - don't have all day
9:49 am

Dartmouth does everything but pediatric open heart surgery
9:49 am

I'm trying to get Buster the pup to stop chewing, so I clasp his muzzle, which is quite unpleasant for him. But that may only work for puppies.
1:56 pm

Soodle, I have a needlepoint in my kitchen that says *Dull women have immaculate houses*. Either way, Babble is more fun than housework.

2:51 pm
Pinikula

what did he do, River?
2:52 pm
Riverdance

and let me vent some more - I was making a spaghetti sauce (from scratch of course) when I got the call to go to hospital. I turned off stove and left. That pot was still on the stove when I got home yesterday
2:52 pm
Pinikula

I'd quit making dinner for a bit; change rolls...see how that goes...
2:52 pm

you're right, more than a stern talking to is needed!

hello daykat -- wi6/30 means a word starting with wi which has 6 letters and scores 30 points. If you scroll down below the grid, right-click on Lickety's Babble Clues, open it in a new window, and you'll get a list of all the beginnings of words like that.

7:29 pm

this is NOT good. *stern mama look* you need medical attention, young man.

it was an adequate year with some high points, but truthfully neither fun nor positive overall.

Not good at all, Nancy!
7:30 pm

it's alright Stid, I just can't sleep. I had a brainwave earlier though...realised that of course, Leo has my name tattooed across his chest. So...I hope he enjoys having that on him forever.
7:30 pm

Two things: if you drink caffeinated beverages, stop -- but cut back slowly so you don't overshock your system.
7:30 pm
NonnieLight

Have you spoken with a doctor yet? You're too young to be suffering thru all that.
7:31 pm
stidmama

If you drink alcohol, STOP. both drugs can interfere with your body's natural sleep mechanisms and other regulatory systems.

*stern mama look at Leo -- what was he (not) thinking????*

Hopefully next year will be much better stid.

I hope so, Nonnie. I will be spending 2/3 of next year in real classrooms with real children, where I tend to be much more effective. I really find being around adults draining.

how is the grid today, anyway? *eyes grid suspiciously*
7:32 pm

Nancy, are you able to set yourself a schedule where you have a nightly "routine". I know that sounds so "grandma-ish" but hey, it works!
7:33 pm
Jillyjill

for me, same as last night...lightening fast at first, now..ssssllloooww
7:33 pm
NonnieLight

I liked today's grid, stid. Some strange little words but overall, it wasn't too bad.
7:33 pm
stidmama

AND see a medical professional. Although caffeine and alcohol (and stress) can all cause sleep disturbance, at your age it shouldn't be lasting longer than a few days. There are other causes for trouble, and only a medic can figure them out. At 4000+ miles away, I don't have the ability to check for endocrine problems, etc.
7:34 pm
stidmama

Nonnie has a good suggestion, too -- if at all possible, keep a regular sleep routine (even if the hours have to shift a bit).
7:34 pm
stidmama

thanks Nonnie and Jilly. I'll give it a try.
7:34 pm
Jillyjill

and don't start napping...makes it even worse
7:35 pm
Nancy Boy

It'll pass, I think - I've never been bothered with it before my boyfriend thoughtfully turned my life upside down. It's probably just stress - I need to find somewhere else to live, and all that
7:36 pm

And give yourself some down time prior to your actual bedtime. Use your down time do pull away from stimulating activities (and substances!), no television, music, etc...in the bedroom. If you pray and/or meditate this is an excellent time. Also, a hot bath.
7:36 pm

Hi Nancy...went thru this for about 1 1/2 years. Need room dark, don't go to sleep with radio or TV. Look for a 'white noise' machine. They do have sleep centers for medical evaluation.

8:49 pm
Riverdance

8:53 pm

glad you did stid. NB is in a bad place right now. I was worried about him.
8:54 pm
stidmama

ugh..
8:56 pm
stidmama

at what point exactly does a teacher's obligation (federal as well as state laws) actually kick in when a student begins to struggle in school??? AT WHAT POINT IS IT APPROPRIATE TO TELL PARENTS THAT _THEY_ ARE THE ONES RESPONSIBLE FOR MONITORING DAILY STUDENT PROGRESS FOR SIGNS OF DIFFICULTIES???????
8:56 pm
herinfernallady

Stid is this about one of your kids?
8:57 pm
Riverdance

school kids I think
8:57 pm
Minski

preferably not in the last week of the school year.
8:57 pm
stidmama

And at what (*&)(&^%*&$ point is it appropriate to not respond to a formal request for evaluation under special education laws when a parent brings up the concern???? (I could cite the specific federal and state statutes if I wanted)
8:57 pm
Riverdance

there are way too many parents that expect the school teachers to teach their children everything they need to know in life
8:57 pm
lbdawger

Those are ethical questions, Stid. No law states when a teacher needs to step in. There is a fair assumption that parents are involved with their students. Schools will monitor up to a point, and since Stidkid1 doesnt' have an iep...they are less likely to intervene.
8:58 pm
stidmama

rofl... "touch of my figners fills it with LOVE?" *gasp choke chortle*
8:58 pm
herinfernallady

Also the poor teachers are so over worked there is always going to be kids that slip under the radar and that is not fair
8:58 pm
stidmama

except new federal legislation requires schools to formally monitor THREE times a year to see if students need assistance.
8:59 pm
Riverdance

but there are parents that need the help of the school system for needy kids - its a hard balance
8:59 pm
herinfernallady

Stid they give the teachers all this extra work yet no one thinks O maybe we need more teachers / careers in teacher roles
8:59 pm
stidmama

I completely understand lack of support (and time) for teachers. What I don't understand is the refusal to respond to direct parent requests for information and feedback.
8:59 pm
Riverdance

so stid, where are you - parent or teacher
9:00 pm
lbdawger

now, as for requesting an evaluation...yes, the school district is responsible for replying and should do a child study team evaluation which should culminate in a meeting with the student and parents. Should you not like the results you can then have your student privately evaluated and if those results come back with your stated concerns confirmed, then you can go thru arbitration.
9:00 pm
herinfernallady

That stid is rude
9:00 pm
Riverdance

ok go it - my boss has a son with significant learning disabilities and he fights all the time with the school system - coast to coast it doesnt change
9:01 pm
stidmama

I am a parent, River -- who is studying to be a teacher, and have just finished the component of the coursework that relates to teacher responsibilities to monitor ALL students for emerging difficulties as the year goes on.
9:02 pm
lbdawger

in that arbitration (should be set up within 30 days of receipt of notice), the arbitrator can decide how the school has missed the boat. the arbitrator can tell the school to pay for the evaluation and to henceforth treat the student as a special education student.
9:02 pm
stidmama

We began to request information from the teacher a month ago. I made a formal request for evaluation three weeks ago -- email to the counselor who should be obligated to at least acknowledge she read the mail and tell me who or how to restate the request if necessary.
9:02 pm
herinfernallady

A primary school that I went to got sued last year for failure of Duty of Care and this has been happening well over 25 years
9:03 pm
stidmama

Son has a 504 (accomodations only) plan based on some physical/neurological impairments, so he should already be somewhat on EVERYONE's radar...
9:03 pm
mkg

hi all.
9:03 pm
Riverdance

how frustrating for you - to know the regs and be stuck in the politics of it all - we only want what is best for our children
9:03 pm
Riverdance

Hi mkg
9:03 pm
herinfernallady

Stid that is frustrating.
9:03 pm
stidmama

I just emailed a local evaluation service to get as much information as I can before the school gets their act together.
9:04 pm
stidmama

hey mkg. join the melee... LOL
9:04 pm
m9f9l

Yup. I opt out.
9:04 pm
Riverdance

at least you know what to do
9:04 pm
mkg

i am so glad my kids are all grown now. baby is in college. i had so much trouble with schools. my kids were extremely GT and also ADD.
9:04 pm
Riverdance

good night m9
9:04 pm
mkg

i had six kids and it was very draining.
9:04 pm
m9f9l

I was in exactly that jumping up and down SO mad point when I pulled them out. Never have looked back
9:04 pm
lbdawger

504's get slipped thru the cracks. it's unfortunate, but it's true. He's still under special education and should thus have his case taken to the OPE department at the state level. You can try to follow proto-call, but I personally would contact CAP at voc rehab and ask for an advocate to help you through this process
9:05 pm
mkg

i wish all luck dealing with our public school system.
9:05 pm
Minski

Sorry to interrupt this conversation, but I am having issues finding the 2 Si5 words. Does anyone have them?
9:05 pm
mkg

even private schools are difficult.
9:05 pm
stidmama

okay, thanks for letting me vent. The biggest concern is that because we are not flies on the wall we were relying on the child's admittedly inaccurate reports of what goes on in school. So we are most worried about next year, and the potential for long-term impacts for college/work
9:05 pm
mkg

minski i also want clues.
9:05 pm
mkg

vent away stid.
9:05 pm
Riverdance

i'll help
9:05 pm

how old is your child stid?

thanks for letting me know those are there mkg. One of them is french mister monsi****

herinfernallady

My friends kid has ADD and Aspergers and all was written down school informed and they still rang her to say ''O we think your son has Aspergers'' She got very mad at them
9:06 pm
stidmama

I don't disclose ages, mkg, but old enough that if the school doesn't help him ASAP he will age out of the system or graduate. Which I think is what they are hoping for...
9:06 pm
Minski

thanks for that one river and lbd
9:06 pm
Riverdance

yeah m9 - what the heck is that spelling anyway???
9:06 pm
stidmama

wow lady -- way to check school records.

i dealt with LDs too. yes indeed. my most LD kid is now rich from day trading and makes 25% on his money a year. he is married with 2 kids and doing so well. after i spent his entire childhood telling everyone he would never function independently. amazing. his wife is a jewel.
9:07 pm

good for your child! :-D I really need to hear those success stories right now...

I went to pick up my boy early to go to his singing group.. this woman blindsides me saying "did I hear you say C***** L****?? Well! YOu'll be getting a letter from his teacher. We have a file on him THIS THICK!!!"
9:08 pm
Riverdance

what do you need minski
9:08 pm
herinfernallady

Well I am fairly sure I have ADD of some form
9:08 pm
stidmama

Yes, River, they can be -- but without support to fill the gaps, their talents and interests just don't show.
9:08 pm
mkg

stid call me to talk. i have been through hell. six kids and all with issues.
9:08 pm
Riverdance

deep breath stid - you will both get through this

Stid you are not a failure. If you were a failure you wouldn't care. You care and that is why you feel like this. It is hopelessness not failure that you feel
9:12 pm

we as parents do the best we can while supporting our families. Why is it mostly up to MOMS to check this stuff? and work and clean and and and
9:14 pm
Jillyjill

No guilt trips Stid....you can't do that to yourself. He knows you love and support him.
9:14 pm
lbdawger

I think stidkid1 will blossom in college. Colleges don't use IEP's. you have the documentation that he needs for disability services and he will get them. He's a smart kid and will do well outside of the antiquated public school system
9:14 pm
Riverdance

KICK GUEST OUT......
9:14 pm

BUT. I also keep thinking about the parents who have never had the wherewithall to figure out why their children's grades are dropping (or maybe were never very good), who don't know even the beginnings of the laws.

Stid, that's where enlightened teachers like you come in. You will be the first to see that something is wrong, and will step in to help. Unlike those who chose not to or didn't have a clue what was going on with stidkid1

Pf4/9!I finished the grid too early. I may as well do a story of clues. My hubby has been out of work since November. Husband made an unwi 4/8 choice & quit his job out of the blue. I went into a pu 4/6 rage and there was an argument.Since then,things have been very rough. Communication wi5/18 between us have completely shut down. I've been thinking a lot about my life lately. Sometimes I wi 4/9 I was a se 4/4 into the future. Sometimes I wi4/9 that I had ma wi5/18 choices in my life and taken a different ro4/5 to the future. Sometimes my life dr5/12 me out and I wi4/9 I could start over fr 5/18. Sometimes I wi 4/9 that I coud be hi4/5ed as a doctor or lawyer. Although I do get pay ra 5/10s sometimes, it isn't enough. I wi 4/9 was an he 4/5 to a throne&not have to worry about money or work. My husband has been trying hard to look for a job. However,it ir4/4 me to no end when I come home from work to see him playing Farmville. I wouldn't even care if he worked at McDonald's selling fr 5/16 at this point. I know husband ru 4/5 the day he quit his job. Oh well,it is we5/20 how life turn out sometimes. Da4/5!Hubby is kicking off the computer again. I am going o ri 4/4 out of this seat & pick out something to we 4/8 tomorrow. Then I'm going to go watch Re4/4e Witherspoon in "Legally Blonde". Adios!
