I thought the economy problem was scheduled for last week, Haz? This week was world peace, right?
3:25 am

sudoku rocks
3:26 am
Haz1558

I'm assuming you mean the economic problems in the south of Ireland or do you mean the whole world's economic problems?
3:26 am
Haz1558

Because if it's the world, my calculator hasn't enough digits.
3:26 am

Just Ireland - well, for this week anyway
3:27 am
lynxxx

I love numbers but I can't abide Soduko
3:27 am
Haz1558

Alas, I feel I'll need to leave it to the experts. It's a shame, only a few years ago the irish economy seemed to be riding high, it seems that it was either non-money in the first place, or they spent too much of real money at the time to leave any for the crisis now.
3:27 am

I play sudoku most nights before sleep. Takes my mind right off worrying and into relaxation mode

My husband seems to be in permanent ready for sleep when he sits in a chair mode.
3:32 am

He is probably on his feet all day I guess
3:33 am

he probably gets lots of fresh air too during the day... not sure what the english word is... but here we say somebody is rozig (rosy) after a day of work outdoors.
3:33 am
Haz1558

I think the fresh air thing probably has a lot to do with it. It just amuses me how quickly he can succumb to sleep. My scintillating conversation can't be that scintillating.
3:34 am
sprite

nope. But reassuringly familiar, apparently.
3:35 am
Haz1558

It's very funny when he stirs, he'll try to comment on something on TV to try to make out that he's been paying attention.

3:51 am
FMitch

I was just about to say the same thing Ata ;)
Hi ruby.
3:51 am
Atalante

I believe you, millions wouldn't :P
3:51 am
Haz1558

Is Tagalong the language of the Gooseberry?
3:52 am
rubyfoo

is the at word a lizard named for our ata?
3:52 am
rubyfoo

it looks like a mayan word
3:52 am
sprite

hi and bye rubyfoo
3:53 am
Atalante

loooooooooool Haz, thats a very good one. the badger song has increased your brilliance
3:53 am

I've got all the words now. WHy does my page say 62 left?
3:56 am
Haz1558

Bad page.
3:56 am
Atalante

I think it must be lying
3:56 am
sprite

ok, really off now, Haz I enjoyed the Christmas song!
3:56 am
lynxxx

Bye Spritely
3:57 am
Haz1558

It's fun, isn't it? I loved that the Home for the Bewildered made an appearance.
3:57 am
Atalante

and there's certainly not an 8 letter word
3:57 am
Lilecama

I agree with you there ata
3:57 am
Atalante

Stuart should go to the HftB
3:58 am
rubyfoo

for sure, ata, not possible
3:58 am
dfmchfhf

How many words again? Memory not working yet. :o/
3:58 am

Hft Terminally B

Is cajolt a kind of sharp persuasion? I'm cross that we can't get cajole.
3:58 am
Atalante

taser persuaser
3:59 am
Lilecama

yay! bottom e greyed out! ;)
3:59 am
Haz1558

You're right, it could be a good marketing name for a taser. Gosh, we're like Alex in the Apprentice, creative powerhouses...
4:00 am
Atalante

still giggling about Stuart's week
4:00 am
Haz1558

Great effort, Lile!
4:00 am
Haz1558

Oh yes, he of the extreme masculinity. Does he shave yet, do you think?
4:00 am
Lilecama

thank you haz! *bows deeply*
4:01 am
Haz1558

I've greyed that tile as well, so I know the effort involved.
4:01 am
Atalante

doubt it
4:02 am
Lilecama

wtg haz!
4:02 am
dfmchfhf

How many words to grey out that tile?
4:02 am
Haz1558

1
4:02 am
Haz1558

But it was a four letter word.
4:02 am
Lilecama

lol!
4:03 am
dfmchfhf

oh, heh :o) then I've greyed it too
4:03 am
Haz1558

Mutual respect.
4:03 am
Lilecama

yay dfm!
4:03 am
dfmchfhf

ooh yay two more sixers :oD
4:03 am
rubyfoo

I greyed the o hahah
4:03 am
FMitch

joins the "I've greyed the e tile club"
4:03 am
Lilecama

impressive!
4:04 am
Lilecama

welcome fm! congrats
4:04 am
dfmchfhf

I bet there ARE no O words :oO
4:04 am
Haz1558

It'll take Ata ages.
4:04 am
Lilecama

lol! haz
4:04 am
Haz1558

She'll probably ask for clues.
4:04 am
rubyfoo

got the e, too, but otherwise, not much and I don't believe there's an 8!
4:04 am
Atalante

I got it ages ago!
4:04 am
Lilecama

I greyed the O tile right from the start
4:05 am
Atalante

oh Haz, you can cook. What should I cook with a ham joint? As in vegetables and potatoes etc
4:05 am
dfmchfhf

I'm still looking for words starting from the O, but I guess I don't need to now :o)
4:06 am
Haz1558

Cauliflour or broccoli?
4:06 am
Lilecama

wasted effort dfm
4:06 am
Haz1558

And always potatoes. Boiled or baked maybe.
4:06 am
rubyfoo

with a ham joint, all kinds of bean, a little pasta, onions and celery and you'll have a great minestrone.
4:06 am
Haz1558

But not a soup, ruby, the ham's for carving, I think.
4:07 am
Haz1558

If you do a cauliflour cheese then you have some sauce to go with everything.
4:07 am
Atalante

I always make ham and then just end up eating it in sandwiches cos proper ham sandwiches are delicious. Yes, as a main meat thing
4:07 am
dfmchfhf

isn't it cauliflower? o.0
4:08 am
Atalante

oooo cauliflower cheese! that's a lovely idea!
4:08 am
Haz1558

Probably. I'm not sure about the spelling of broccoli either. I know I've got potatoes right.
4:09 am
Atalante

yes, cauliflower
4:11 am
Atalante

write it out 100 times till you remember
4:11 am
Lilecama

is this m word as tricky as the e word?
4:11 am
FMitch

I use broccoli instead of cauliflower and saute some onion with a hint of garlic and then combine with the cheese sauce.
4:11 am
Haz1558

But don't overcook your cauliflower or it will be mushy. Cauliflower is best with a bit of bite. Cauliflower doesn't like to be overdone. There, three times.
4:12 am
Lilecama

found it!
4:12 am
Lilecama

strange word
4:12 am
FMitch

it is worse Lile
4:12 am
rubyfoo

yay lile
4:12 am
lynxxx

You would almost put the mu5 on your garden
4:13 am
FMitch

This is a grid of non words
4:13 am
Lilecama

best place for it lynxxx
4:13 am
dfmchfhf

heh, typo'd the m earlier :oD yay for dvorak
4:13 am
Lilecama

yes fm - never heard of the li5
4:14 am
Atalante

li5 is very common for me!
4:14 am
lynxxx

Better do something about dinner - bye all
4:14 am
Lilecama

bye lynxxx
4:14 am
Lilecama

how so ata?
4:14 am
Atalante

I must say it at least a few times a week
4:14 am
Haz1558

I bet lynxxx is going to make ham and cauliflower.
4:14 am
FMitch

Bye lynxxx
4:14 am
Haz1558

She's stolen our ideas.
4:14 am
Lilecama

she's mu4'd them
4:15 am
dfmchfhf

thanks for the li5, whoever mentioned the fiveyness :o)
4:15 am
Atalante

one of my frieds has never had ham in coca cola so I said I'd make it for them
4:15 am
Lilecama

lol ata! and why, may I ask?
4:15 am
Haz1558

Oh, that's a Nigella 'wait until I pout' Lawson recipe, isn't it?
4:15 am
Atalante

because we use li5 a lot to map the Kent coast
4:16 am
Atalante

yep! and it's absolutely *gorgeous*
4:16 am
dfmchfhf

ham in coca cola? o.0
4:16 am
Haz1558

Just like her. (Sarcastic font)
4:16 am
Lilecama

oooo maybe you're a scientist? (just looked it up) and now see you chat...
4:16 am
Jayk

I made that once. It's not very good. Morning!
4:17 am
Lilecama

easy word for you then :)
4:17 am
Atalante

ham in coke is absolutely delicious
4:17 am
rubyfoo

gm jayk!
4:17 am
Haz1558

Maybe Ata is a scientist? With Einstein as a grandfather what else could she be?
4:17 am
Atalante

yep :) we use li5, multi-beam and side-scan sonars :)
4:17 am
Haz1558

Good morning, Jayk.
4:17 am
Jayk

Hi Ruby, Haz, Ata, Etc
4:18 am
Jayk

this thing is fiendish!
4:18 am
Atalante

I could have deviated from the family norms!
4:18 am
Lilecama

does the kent coast need so much mapping?
4:18 am
Haz1558

Another letter greyed. We're flying through.
4:18 am
Jayk

lucky for me i woke up at 3 effing thirty
4:19 am
Atalante

every coast needs so much mapping
4:19 am
Lilecama

which one haz?
4:19 am
dfmchfhf

<-- never had ham in coke o.0 recipe (or something)?
4:19 am
Lilecama

do coasts change so much then?
4:19 am
FMitch

that is an ungodly hour Jayk
4:19 am
Haz1558

The L. A five letter as well.
4:19 am
FMitch

Back in 5, am down to 21
4:19 am
Atalante

it's more that most really haven't ever been mapped in great detail before the last few years
4:20 am
Jayk

Very ungodly!
4:20 am
Lilecama

ata's word, that is haz
4:20 am
Haz1558

See you shortly.
4:20 am
Atalante

we map a lot to help work out all the new marine conservation zones that are being created at the moment
4:20 am
Haz1558

Meaning, see FM shortly, I'm still here.
4:21 am
Lilecama

that's interesting ata. You would have thought the coast map would be the outline for a country.
4:21 am
rubyfoo

not even half. notice the da4/7 and the dr4/5, both for expressing frustration with this hard grid
4:21 am
Atalante

it is - but now we can map down to metre sensitivities out to sea, so we can see all the seabed and what's on it, and where features are etc etc
4:22 am
Lilecama

ah - good work ata. Saw Massive Nature episode last night. sardines being attacked by dolphins, sharks, sealions and gannets all working together... impressive stuff!
4:22 am
Haz1558

Belfast's river counts as a word - la5.
4:22 am
Atalante

goodness!
4:22 am
Atalante

all marine stuff is quite amazing :)
4:23 am
Lilecama

dont know belfast's river... ;(
4:23 am
Haz1558

Google it!
4:23 am
Atalante

one vowel off an x-man :)
4:23 am
Lilecama

fascinating and inspiring work you have ata
4:23 am
Haz1558

Or la plus the start of a male goose.
4:24 am

4:24 am

So now you know!.

4:27 am
rubyfoo

monkeys are looking for the other but, at least, nbt
4:27 am
Haz1558

Make sure to take everything out of your pockets, FM.
4:27 am
rubyfoo

yay, u's greyed
4:27 am

I'm glad it's not just me having problems with this.
4:27 am

good point Haz :)
Bye Lile.

Bye, Lile.

Yay found the 8 - it works!
4:28 am
Haz1558

But I've never been able to stand on my head.
4:29 am
Haz1558

If I turn the monitor upside down ,will that work?
4:29 am
rubyfoo

first letters, fm?
4:29 am
FMitch

Now that is a much more sensible idea Haz
4:29 am
FMitch

ca8/50 (its 2 words)
4:30 am
Haz1558

*smug* Always sensible.
4:31 am
dfmchfhf

There's an 8? o.0
4:31 am
Atalante

ty fm
4:32 am
rubyfoo

I'm sure I have the first part, but can't imagine the second. Too many possibilities\
4:32 am
Atalante

what this grid does not have a lot of! (of words)
4:32 am
FMitch

ha ha Ata!
4:34 am
Atalante

cultalog - a listing of all the world's weirdos?
4:34 am
Haz1558

I still think that ca4 cl4/7s would go down well with Dutch truckers.
4:34 am
Lilecama

am back - cannot leave. stuck to chair... glued to screen...
4:34 am
Haz1558

Lile is heading for a case of babble butt.
4:34 am
dfmchfhf

superglue or normal glue, lile?
4:34 am
FMitch

LOL Haz v funny.
4:35 am
Atalante

are you well, Haz? First you admit not being able to spell a word, then use a word like butt!
4:35 am
Haz1558

ca4/5 cl4/5 - a condition suffered by Dutch truckers if they don't exercise enough.
4:35 am
Lilecama

lol! is that rbi? (repetative babble injury)
4:35 am
Haz1558

I know, my standards are slipping.
4:36 am
Lilecama

it sounds so much better than babble bottom tho, dont you think?
4:37 am
Haz1558

In my defence, people have always been the butt of jokes.
4:37 am
FMitch

If Haz starts to use txt speak we'll know something is really wrong.
4:37 am
Atalante

oh yes, it just sounded funny coming from you :)
4:38 am
Lilecama

blame it on the grid....
4:38 am
Haz1558

I know. Text speak and profanities will indicate either dementia or kidnap.
4:39 am
Lilecama

which is it today, haz?
4:39 am
Haz1558

Probably the start of dementia. I blame that badger song.
4:40 am
Haz1558

And this grid is enough to make anyone mad.
4:40 am
Lilecama

badgers are not good for ones health - just like this grid!
4:41 am
Lilecama

and sprite said it was fun!!!!
4:41 am
Haz1558

It's just one of those slow grids where you pick out a word at a time. Ten minutes apart. And then nothing.
4:42 am
FMitch

Am giving and and going to the list.
4:42 am
Atalante

it is fun!
4:42 am
Lilecama

I'm more than half way, I've allowed myself to list and I can't even find an al4!!!
4:42 am
Lilecama

just cos you know words like li5 ata!!!
4:42 am
Haz1558

(think singing, LIle)
4:43 am
Atalante

*smug*
4:43 am
Lilecama

another al4 haz...
4:43 am
Haz1558

al plus Mr Garfunkel's start.
4:44 am
Haz1558

Or al plus the Camelot King's start.
4:44 am
Haz1558

Or a plus the ascending bird.
4:44 am
Haz1558

There - haven't used them in clues for AGES.
4:44 am
Lilecama

ty haz! *sigh*
4:44 am
Lilecama

Camelot's king ok, Mr, Garfunkel yes, but ascending bird???
4:45 am
dfmchfhf

I don't get *any* of those clues :o/
4:45 am
Haz1558

'The **** Ascending' Vaughan Williams
4:46 am
Atalante

without its last letter
4:47 am
Lilecama

(back from google) .... ah - that bird! ;)
4:47 am
FMitch

Thanks for those a's!
4:47 am
Haz1558

Yes, it should have been part of the ascending bird.
4:47 am
Haz1558

(Making note to be more accurate in future)
4:47 am
Atalante

very sloppy work today, haz
4:48 am
Lilecama

definitely dementia
4:48 am
Haz1558

I know.
4:48 am
Haz1558

I am ul5 ashamed of myself.
4:49 am
Lilecama

nice recovery!
4:50 am

Perhaps you should stop smoking g5/24
4:50 am
Lilecama

ty for the g5 fm!
4:50 am
FMitch

yw :)
4:51 am
Lilecama

50 left - slog slog
4:51 am
Lilecama

*makes note not to listen to sprite when she calls a grid fun*
4:52 am
Haz1558

She's Dutch and probably has mistranslated the meaning of the word 'fun'. She probably thinks it means fiendishly difficult and guaranteed to make you pull your hair out.
4:53 am
Haz1558

Her English is usually pretty good, but now and again you just know that she's got hold of the wrong end of the stick.
4:53 am
Lilecama

that must be it - especially when she must feel at home with the cl in the grid...
4:54 am
Haz1558

It's the only feasible explanation.
4:54 am
Lilecama

f-fiendishly, u-unfriendly, n-nasty
4:54 am
FMitch

we should send her to ga4/6 as a fr5/20
4:54 am
Haz1558

You've got it, Lile.

sucky duck was a pain 1st this this a.m it wouldn't save and took forever to enter the numbers.
4:55 am
Atalante

fun puzzle though :P
4:55 am
dfmchfhf

ooh found the 8 :oD
4:55 am
FMitch

yay dfm
4:55 am
Haz1558

Look at that, FM. You give the clues and Ata gets the glory.
4:56 am
Haz1558

And she wasn't even here, she was doing sucky-duck. I'd sulk if I were you.
4:56 am
FMitch

such is life.
4:56 am
Atalante

I was doing both!
4:56 am
Lilecama

it's the mu4 doing its bit again
4:56 am
Lilecama

what about this au5 then?
4:56 am
Haz1558

Yes, but you weren't giving clues!
4:57 am
FMitch

Did I point out I finished sucky duck ages ago and btw I have fireworks here too.
4:57 am
Haz1558

Glory abounds around FM!
4:57 am

that wasn't implied in your words. You said I was away doing sucky duck :P

Sucky duck is Sudoku.

I like KaKuro better... anyone know some online site for it?

5:01 am

Oh, poor little mouse.

Right, I'm going to be all disciplined and get some other things done. I've had about as much fun as I can take with this grid, I'll just have to come back for more!
5:02 am

good for you, haz! I admire the strength. see you later

6:21 am
zoozzoom

6:21 am
dfmchfhf

6:22 am
zoozzoom

6:23 am
dfmchfhf

I'm wishing my credit card can get here already so I *can* go pro... or maybe I need to figure this prepaid card thing :o/
6:24 am
zoozzoom

Oh yes, i remember a few of us talking about this before now you mention it..i hope your credit card gets to you soon.
6:25 am
zoozzoom

6:26 am
dfmchfhf

most people end up shortening my name :o) it's inherent to one that is so hard to type/remember
6:26 am
zoozzoom

lol
6:27 am
zoozzoom

when i type, i do one finger typing & am looking at the keyboard..lol
6:28 am
dfmchfhf

It has gotten to the point where I even respond to "c" (that's my name shortened to "d" and then 'shortened' further still by removing the '|' part)
6:29 am
zoozzoom

6:31 am

6:46 am

6:47 am
jmcnrick

i don't know if it would have worked since there are so many variant spellings dfm
6:48 am
jmcnrick

6:48 am

or welki could just spell it out.LOL
9:20 am

Ugh, I need to get a bigger vocabulary.
9:20 am
dfmchfhf

ca8/50 the quantity a typical (usu.) hand-drawn or horse-drawn vehicular container is capable of retaining
9:20 am
m9f9l

yeah cg, but where could you ever use it?!? LOL
9:20 am
trentsnana

that was a great clue, welki
9:20 am
welki

hmmm.. thought she asked for a clue, not for stats
9:21 am
cgw8

Well, I play scrabble a lot. xD
9:21 am
m9f9l

sorry.l. I usually play at flip, when stats ARE the clue!LOL don't mind me.. just silly up too early
9:21 am
dfmchfhf

cgw, just monkey the words ;o) We all do, to some extent...
9:22 am
dfmchfhf

The key to Scrabble is not a big vocabulary... it's knowing how to lie about fake words ;o)
9:22 am
welki

the rules change here every day (or more often sometimes) ... i'll just be quiet now :)
9:22 am
cgw8

Hahaha, that's true.
9:22 am
m9f9l

no don't be quiet! this is a tough grid!
9:23 am
dfmchfhf

I played a game with only seven real words on the board o.0 and I think all three of us lost something on the order of 10 turns each...
9:23 am
trentsnana

I think welki took it that you didn't like her giving me that good clue, m9
9:23 am
cgw8

Haha, wow. My games are boring, most of us don't lie.
9:24 am
m9f9l

yes.. I figured that.
9:25 am
welki

no worries ... some folks get ticked off when clues like that are given, some don't. there's one player here who'll leave if someone gives a pretty obvious description of a word. i say, this is a game *shrug*
9:26 am
cgw8

I like obvious clues. xD
9:26 am
m9f9l

I have noticed that certain times of day have different "flavors".LOL
9:26 am
m9f9l

I give REALLY obvious clues right before flip!LOL
9:26 am
m9f9l

and very cryptic ones right after..
9:26 am
welki

i have an eclectic palate, so bring on the flavors! lolol
9:27 am
m9f9l

I think it's fun to play with the clues too.
9:27 am
m9f9l

sometimes I try and have all my clues be related to songs. that's very hard to do...
9:27 am
dfmchfhf

I like definitions more than clues myself :o/
9:27 am
trentsnana

I see you love to fish, welki - me, too
9:28 am
trentsnana

I live in Montana and there are lots of opportunities here, also
9:28 am
dfmchfhf

if I give clues I make them like cryptic crossword ones...
9:28 am
m9f9l

you mean actual fish, right? we're not talking about babble?LOL
9:28 am
welki

bottom line is that this is a g*a*m*e ... if some folks don't want to see obvious clues, then close down the chat box ... but those same players are the ones who ask and ask for clues, but when they finish the grid, they *poof* into the vapours
9:28 am
trentsnana

all true
9:29 am
welki

<-- is just waiting for the ice fishing to begin (shouldn't be long, it's -6F here today)
9:29 am
trentsnana

yes, actual fish!
9:29 am
m9f9l

ah.. like folks who say tu6? without even saying hello first?
9:29 am
trentsnana

we have a reservoir not too far from here that is great for ice fishing
9:29 am
m9f9l

that always cracks me up for some reason
9:29 am
dfmchfhf

-6F is how much C?
9:29 am
trentsnana

will be awhile, *sigh*, before it's frozen....
9:29 am
m9f9l

ice fishing! eek
9:29 am

hi BR
9:30 am
MollyL

I agree Welki. If someone asks for stats, I give stats. If someone asks for a clue, I give a clue. And not "it builds on the n6" because what if they don't have the n6. It is *just a game*.
9:31 am
welki

hey babble .. the best bait for ice is a glass :)
9:31 am
trentsnana

that's crazy, df!

ooh, var, the question I was asking yesterday... the phoneme /j/ sounds like the "y" in "yes" in English ;oP
10:49 am
varumba

yes, i realised that.... it would only be the combination of hia in french .... basically ia... we don't have 1 letter that does that sound
10:50 am
dfmchfhf

the "j" sound is /dʒ/
10:50 am
varumba

ok, am sure the ca6/27 has the same start as ca8/50...... am i right? i can't find the right combination again....
10:51 am
dfmchfhf

ca6/27 in fact does *not* :oO
10:51 am

11:18 am

but, uh, that's not what you do.
11:18 am
brid

you make words based on how the letters actually are...not how your brain thinks they should be.
11:19 am

11:47 am
cgw8

Lolol nice
11:47 am
dfmchfhf

as is
f(x) := piecewise ( 1/n if x can be written in lowest terms as m/n, 0 otherwise)
(which is an AWESOME function by the way)

6:52 pm
Bugsaw

6:54 pm
stidmama

6:54 pm
Roses6

6:54 pm

6:57 pm
jmcnrick

*holds out huge cup*
6:57 pm
jmcnrick

can't believe i am still at the office :-(
6:57 pm
stidmama

why still at office?
6:57 pm
Nef

One you in bright colors, jmc; but maybe if you had you hair and make-up on it makes a difference in what colors work best for you
6:57 pm
cosdem

hello hello hello
6:58 pm
Roses6

Just took a look jmc. IMHO definitely H or B for an interview. Good luck!
6:58 pm
jmcnrick

I had a meeting that included *ahem* white house staff that took all morning, then met with a student, then went to the mall for a video shot for the history channell then came back to office to write 4 emails that each took about 1/2 hours
6:59 pm
jmcnrick

make-up?
6:59 pm
Nef

oh, MAN! My spelling and grammar suck tonight! I've been up since 4 AM; it shows!
6:59 pm
Bugsaw

B is good but colour on your face is a good suggestion too.
7:00 pm
jmcnrick

yeah I like the blouse in H and wore it to weddings last weekend
7:00 pm
Nef

well, jmc; a little color (lipstick or blush?) for an interview?
7:00 pm
stidmama

rofl -- jmc have you worn makeup in the last 20 years?
7:00 pm
jmcnrick

I will probably put on mascara and eyebrows
7:01 pm
Bugsaw

lipstick and blush. The 12 year old girls at makeup counters give good advice to us old hippies who need some colour but not much
7:01 pm
Nef

And B is good too; but it does need a little color (IMHO)
7:01 pm
jmcnrick

at halloween mostly stiddie
7:02 pm
jmcnrick

i could wear a lapis necklace with B
7:02 pm
jmcnrick

i do sometimes wear it to court or to some parties
7:02 pm
jmcnrick

i wear makeup in court and at parties i mean
7:03 pm
Bugsaw

then do for the interview too!
7:04 pm
jmcnrick

i was planning on mascara and eyebrows
7:04 pm
stidmama

oh~ then yes, for an interview, a bit is a good idea. BUT -- not the halloween stuff!
7:04 pm
jmcnrick

my boys used to make fun of me for having eyebrows only when i went to court or a party
7:04 pm
jmcnrick

*puts the fake blood back in the drawer*
7:04 pm
Nef

I wear makeup very rarely too; but when I do I've been told I "clean up well" (which is a compliment I guesss)
7:05 pm
Bugsaw

I have to do eyebrows everyday but never wear mascara
7:07 pm
jmcnrick

fortunately for my current job i get to wear jeans and t-shirts
7:07 pm
jmcnrick

okay I am heading home. The GIs will have to solve their own problems for a while.
7:08 pm
Nef

What is this job you are interviewing for, jmc?
7:08 pm
jmcnrick

I will be back as soon as I get home and fix something to eat--wish I had some left over jerk chicken from lunch
7:08 pm
jmcnrick

head of a national quaker organization
7:08 pm
stidmama

well, down to 41 and as much as I would love to stay and visit, I am exhausted. And mystified why my DH is not home yet.
7:09 pm
stidmama

7:09 pm
jmcnrick

I am trying to show them I "clean up well" too.

7:10 pm
Bugsaw

How is life treating you and your husband lately Nef?
7:12 pm
Nef

I'm exhausted lately, bugs; but DH is a walking miracle! He's out of the wheel chair and using a cane again; eyesight is better than 2 prescriptions ago, speech is clear and he's doing great (still has some memory problems, but Hey!

Hm...
7:42 pm
cosdem

u can just ask the chog how many words are in the grid and someoen whos pro will be able to let u know
7:42 pm
cosdem

a lot of people do that
7:42 pm
LeslieAnn

hang out a while before you decide, cgw. most of us decide the $ is worth it, but some stay on the free version.
7:43 pm
Dorens

but..... since we all get so much pleasure from this game and it costs so little compared to other things you do for entertainment, most of us think Dr. G-d deserves his $$
7:43 pm
cgw8

Yeah, I'll probably do that. :)
7:43 pm
cosdem

yes id do what leslie said
7:43 pm
cgw8

7:44 pm
cgw8

You have to be expert? What's that mean?
7:44 pm
Dorens

or you have to be pro for babble expert
7:44 pm
Dorens

7:47 pm
LeslieAnn

7:47 pm
cgw8

Yeah, they are. I found at least 20 of these words just by putting in random letters. xD
7:47 pm
cosdem

thas the way to do it cgw!
7:48 pm
LeslieAnn

it's called "monkeying," cgw. as in, a thousand monkeys typing on a thousand typewriters will eventually write the works of shakespeare... or get all the babble words
7:48 pm
cosdem

a fish is when someone clues u a word that is pretty obvious in the grid
7:48 pm
cgw8

Oooh is THAT what monkeying means. Someone told me to do that and I didn't get what they meant. xD
7:49 pm
LeslieAnn

we have our own jargon ;)
7:49 pm
cgw8

Yeah, man, it's like your own language. xD
7:49 pm
cosdem
