Oh no, Tif, not good ;-(
4:57 am
Trifioso

well, when the dogs gotta pee, they gotta pee.
4:58 am

yeah. Bad timing by the dog though. Did you ri4 the bell until all were awake or did you have to wait outside for rescue?
4:58 am
Trifioso

full marks for tertiare -- she heard me yelling and came and let me in. she was DEAD asleep too, so she really rocks
4:58 am

I don't have a bell - in fact none of the houses I have lived in have ever had a bell. I grew upp in the generation of Australians that usually used the back door anyway
5:02 am
Trifioso

LOL gort....yes, I really do live in one of those sleepy new england towns, where no one locks their doors, and hardly anyone needs a bell, (though some people do have them) because you just open up the house and walk in, since you know exactly whose house it is anyway
5:03 am
sprite

just the same second as I, zooz! And I am singing a song now... she came without a fa8... a babe without a name... so much ado 'bout no7... is what she liked to say....
5:03 am

bells are for fancy people whose houses are so big they can't hear you hollerin'
5:05 am
sprite

holland is different, gort. Everybody here has a doorbell. Doors are locked. By far most people are NOT amused when somebody enters the backdoor uninvited.
5:05 am
MollyL

I think I better go stock up the penalty box. There are a lot of "potential" words in this grid. *Loading up the chocolate, baked goods, coffee and liquor*
5:05 am
lynxxx

We sometimes do that here Trif - though usually yell out when you enter the house - just in case there is some-one in the all together
5:05 am
gortmold

well no, here we call those people thieves, but once upon a time, we called them mothers-in-law...either way, we also called the cops

the island i was a missionary on, people do this sweet little thing when they pass each other's houses, and sort of sing a little greeting in patois, and if the person is home they call back. I miss it so....

I agree, Trif. When is day 1 of the class?
5:13 am
Trifioso

let's see" the Commonwealth of Dominica, which is NOT the Dominican Republic, through Short Term Volunteers in Mission, Because my mom, a physician, was also there with me, and I felt braver being there with her, and it was not an evangelical mission trip but a service oriented one, focusing on sustainable improvements and setting up cottage industries that would survive after we left. No one wants to be the "big white mister" coming down to help the locals....

5:18 am

my love did it because he thought it was needed and worth doing. He was working for the union here and they were part of the project. The people he lived with there, he still refers to as 'parents', they became so close.
A totally different life there, too. Very simple. Hard to even get the basics of life together. Great people.

But it seemed conviencing
6:04 am
jmcnrick

too true -- you are welcome to vote on my job interview outfits
6:05 am
melissamay

Ok, lemme take a look!
6:05 am
jmcnrick

lol herin i think it has two Cs
6:06 am

<=== surprised at self for knowing how to spell someth***
6:07 am

o wel
6:08 am
jmcnrick

you get a word if you swap the vowels herin
6:08 am
herinfernallady

cheers
6:08 am
melissamay

I like outfit B or G, personally!
6:09 am
jmcnrick

interesting choices
6:09 am
jmcnrick

most people like A or H and I kinda like G myself
6:09 am
melissamay

In fact I'm going to settle on G, because the belt is cute.
6:09 am
jmcnrick

the belt is cute and is on the sweater
6:10 am
jmcnrick

ty for your input
6:10 am
melissamay

You look like you feel pretty and confident in G, so that's another reason to consider it! It's the one where you're really smiling.
6:11 am
jmcnrick

my boy the photographer was prodding me
6:11 am
melissamay

:D
6:11 am
jmcnrick

we tried to make the photos enough alike so the issue was the clothes
6:11 am
jmcnrick

hence the model stance with a hand in my pocket
6:12 am
melissamay

They were all alike, but I don't know -- it's your body language too, you just look most comfortable in that one to me!
6:13 am
melissamay

When is your interview?
6:13 am
jmcnrick

Dec 6
6:13 am
jmcnrick

the only problem is that if i get the job i will have to move to philly!
6:14 am
jmcnrick

sometimes i think it would be better to just go back to practicing law -- especially since my law office is out of my home now
6:14 am
jmcnrick

when i started practicing law a woman working out of her house would not have been taken seriously
6:15 am
jmcnrick

but it is different now
6:15 am
melissamay

Wow, that's huge and quite a move. Yes, a lot of people work out of homes here, including lawyers...
6:15 am
Eva

Good morning all. I like outfit B myself-bright and neat and professional looking at the same time. but it depends on what the interview is for.
6:16 am
herinfernallady

Hi Eva. Right I am off and going to bed.
6:16 am
melissamay

It's a bit nervewracking being your own business right now though. I'm lucky I'm doing well, but man it's unpredictable.
6:16 am
jmcnrick

ty eva -- a job as the head of a quaker organization
6:17 am
jmcnrick

oh melissa i was self-employed for 20 years before i got the job running the peace org which is only slightly different from being self employed when you are the boss
6:17 am
sami1986

seriously dont know how you guys get so good at this :)
6:18 am
jmcnrick

i would have been bankrupt years ago but for credit cards to smooth over the dips!
6:18 am
jmcnrick

the same way you get to Carnegie Hall sami! ;-)
6:18 am
Eva

Do you think they want someone more on the vibrant, dramatic, warm side or more on the reserved side? I like the outfits with vibrant colors, but they give a different message.
6:18 am
melissamay

Well, then I guess you can cope with the vagaries of self-employment pretty well then -- and I know what you mean about credit! Woof, I just paid all mine off after a period where both my husband and I were out of work.
6:19 am
jmcnrick

hmmm good question -- it is clear from the feed back from my insiders and references that th*** problem with me is that I am too *ahem* direct in my speech
6:20 am
jmcnrick

yes melissa -- my sister cant stand being self-employed but I don't think i could stand having a boss at this point
6:20 am
melissamay

That's why I like G or B, they are reserved but with a hint of personality.
6:20 am
Eva

So I guess the bigger question, if you can afford to ask it, is whether you want a job, especially to move for a job, where you can't be yourself.
6:20 am
jmcnrick

good point melissa -- most people like the sparkles in A but I am afraid it is just too much
6:22 am
jmcnrick

oh but I can be myself eva since as an attorney and the head of an organization which represents conservative christians, nra members, radical christians, and communist athiests I am clear about roles
6:22 am
herinfernallady

JM HIRE ME
6:22 am
melissamay

I hear you there. I love the freedom as well.
6:22 am
jmcnrick

lol herin i am afraid the commuting expenses would kill both of us herin
6:22 am
herinfernallady

I can move
6:23 am
Jayk

Hi all. Fascinating! I like G myself. Why are you wanting to leave your current job JM??
6:24 am
jmcnrick

the th*** about this job would be that i would be representing a fa**ly narrow group of quakers (which is less taxing) with whom I share a lot and can talk about the connections of justice and peace and not just conscientious objection
6:24 am
Eva

Yes, I thought you looked beautiful in the sparkly ones, but they were more going out in the evening looks than job interview.
6:24 am
jmcnrick

but can you get a visa herin?
6:24 am
jmcnrick

it is just time jayk I ne** someth*** new and so does the organization
6:24 am
herinfernallady

Don't know but I also dont want to get frisked by TSA
6:25 am
jmcnrick

then agree to the body scan
6:25 am
Jayk

Wow. Big move. I would hate to leave DC
6:25 am
jmcnrick

I think that is right Eva -- it is a great jacket but not for a job interview
6:26 am
jmcnrick

That is the drag Jayk but then I don't have the job
6:26 am
jmcnrick

The thought of having to go to Philly games makes me slightly nauseous
6:26 am

Good morning Babblers :)
6:26 am

Morning!
6:27 am

it wasn't so much the jacket for me as the black sparkly blouse
6:27 am
NonoNanette

jmc, I would pick outfit G
6:27 am
jmcnrick

ty nono
6:27 am
jmcnrick

G is moving up in the polls
6:28 am
herinfernallady

Actually you have Snow right?
6:29 am
NonoNanette

jmc what is it about Philly that bothers you?
6:29 am
jmcnrick

not here yet herin
6:30 am
jmcnrick

the baseball team and being away from my sister
6:30 am
Atalante

I'd say A, but I think that's cos I'm English and it looks English :P
6:30 am
jmcnrick

i think living in downtown phillly for a few years would be fun otherwise
6:30 am
jmcnrick

:-P
6:30 am
jmcnrick

hi ata
6:31 am
Atalante

and hi :)
6:31 am
NonoNanette

i understand being away from your sister, but the ball team? just ignore them and root for whomever you please
6:31 am
melissamay

Ata, the pup in your profile is just adorable.
6:31 am
Eva

It does sound as if once you get the job you will be in a strong enough position to be yourself. At a certain age I just decided that if I had to distort myself too much to get a job, I didn't want it. Of course that was also at a time when jobs were easier to come by. Now I almost never have to decide on outfits anymore, unless I venture outside of Vermont. Getting out of one's nightgown and not wearing mudboots is considered dressing up here.
6:32 am
jmcnrick

I could enjoy the team but not the fans nono -- and I am a big baseball fan -- have season tickets to the Nationals from the start
6:32 am
Atalante

that's my Hobbit :D
6:32 am
melissamay

Man, am I slow on the uptake. Is today "show off your pet" icon day?
6:32 am
jmcnrick

well it is not a contortion as much as a facet
6:33 am
Atalante

nooo, she's just always my pic :)
6:33 am
Eva

are those paramecium jm?
6:33 am
jmcnrick

but mondays are pet days
6:33 am
jmcnrick

no they are pease which are sea slugs
6:33 am
herinfernallady

Ata it is Hobbit in ful Booooooooing
6:33 am
jmcnrick

from thursday's grid
6:34 am
melissamay

So cute! I just noticed a lot of kitties and pups running about. Ah, see, that's what you miss when you don't change your icon for 5 years.
6:34 am
NonoNanette

ah yes the Philly fanatics, :) I'm not sure they're any worse than some other team fans but Washington is not that far away, a weekend trip would be easy enough to do and take in a game while your there
6:34 am
Eva

ah yes-too complex for paramecia
6:34 am
jmcnrick

it is a great pic of hobbit ata -- you really get the silliness of that dog
6:35 am
jmcnrick

actually having sat through several games with several different teams i would say the Philly fans are the worst. And I would work a lot of weekends but you are right --- I could get down to some games in DC
6:36 am
Atalante

she's a very happy little dog. It's almost impossible to be sad around her
6:36 am
herinfernallady

True
6:36 am
jmcnrick

anyway I may not get the job and then I wont have to worry about deciding
6:37 am
NonoNanette

Ata, love that pic! Hobbit looks to be having a blast
6:37 am

Canadian Thanksgiving - How It Began
The origins of Canadian Thanksgiving are more closely connected to the traditions of Europe than of the United States. Long before Europeans settled in North America, festivals of thanks and celebrations of harvest took place in Europe in the month of October. The very first Thanksgiving celebration in North America took place in Canada when Martin Frobisher, an explorer from England, arrived in Newfoundland in 1578. He wanted to give thanks for his safe arrival to the New World. That means the first Thanksgiving in Canada was celebrated 43 years before the pilgrims landed in Plymouth, Massachusetts!
8:07 am
doseffing

what happened in Newfie? ... that's the only place there was a European settlement until 1608 ... but I'll admit ... nobody really knows ... because the authorities everywhere were always ddeclaring a day of thanks ..
8:08 am
carleekat

Another reason for Canadian Thanksgiving arriving earlier than its American counterpart is that Canada is geographically further north than the United States, causing the Canadian harvest season to arrive earlier than the American harvest season. And since Thanksgiving for Canadians is more about giving thanks for the harvest season than the arrival of pilgrims, it makes sense to celebrate the holiday in October. So what are the differences between Canadian and American Thanksgiving, other than the date? Not much! Both Canadians and Americans celebrate Thanksgiving with parades, family gatherings, pumpkin pie and a whole lot of turkey!

8:20 am

we are not "better" we are just a tad more...easy going lets say.that is just observing what i see drifting over from michigan and buffalo etc..although showing a american what a dime or a quarter is in their change is always great fun..see? the one that says 10 on it is a dime,and the one that says 25 on it is a quarter...lool

sorry ... my dad was at Dieppe where the americans and British decided that they's try an experiement and used Canadians as guinea pigs ... took me years to get over the indoctrination that americans and british were really lower forms of humanity ...

I still think FM should sue for something or other.

Sally-catlover

Sorry Haz? What has happened to FM?
11:04 am
redturtlehead

jmc, intersting icon...is it fossil or ameoba day?

Funnily enough, red, I never have a disagreeable run.

is fm burned by hot coffee?
11:04 am

11:05 am
redturtlehead

Haz, I wish I could say otherwise. but this one is done. Indeed kje.
11:05 am
Haz1558

jmc shocked me by revealing that her mnemonic fore remembering dfm's name is 'Ditzy FM'
11:05 am
Sally-catlover

I don't visualise FM as ditsy, by the way.
11:05 am
Haz1558

You are quite right, kje. A fast walk is about all I could ever manage.
11:05 am

Oh I see! lol.
11:05 am

your fast walk Haz, may be faster than my slow run....but in general I enjoy so slow is good...
11:06 am

You see? They're all as shocked as I am, jmc. You can be witnesses for the prosecution.
11:06 am

An agreeable run ruru is one where your time is somewhat what you expect and things do not hurt a lot.

Tolkien geekery :)

Are you worried about sacrelige against Christmas or sacrelige against Tolkien? (Or sacrelige against not knowing how to spell sacrelige.)
12:34 pm
bleugirl2

i don't get the HI6 hastening clue
12:34 pm
Atalante

I was thinking about Tolkien, but Christmas is probably just as important!!
12:34 pm
helensgirlkid

It's part of the coat of arms, isn't it, Ata?
12:35 pm
bleugirl2

and thanks for the NO
12:35 pm
Vicuna

lol - I suspected as much, which amused me. Either way, I say go for it.
12:35 pm
helensgirlkid

H** the hence, varlet - then add those handy three letters meaning ongoing activity
12:36 pm
Atalante

I'd love to do a print like you do of something like that
12:36 pm
helensgirlkid

Sorry - MUST proof these things - H** thee hence, varlet!
12:36 pm
Atalante

varlet is a fab word
12:36 pm
helensgirlkid

Fireworks!
12:36 pm
bleugirl2

ok got it. thx
12:36 pm
Lilecama

congrats helen
12:37 pm
helensgirlkid

With great thanks to those three little ending letters!
12:37 pm
Vicuna

Oh, yeah, block printing would be perfect for stylized white tree on black background. Straightforward to do and wonderfully dramatic.
12:37 pm
Vicuna

Yay for helens!
12:37 pm
Atalante

absolutely!
12:37 pm
Atalante

yay helens!
12:37 pm
helensgirlkid

Gondor must have had some sort of winter festival that celebrated light - and stars are pretty widespread as a symbol of light.
12:37 pm
Vicuna

Be sure to show me when you finish it! ;D
12:38 pm
Atalante

I think you're right! Elves had a midwinter thingy, we know that, am sure Gondor must have had similar
12:39 pm
Vicuna

True enough, helens. As long as the tinsel wasn't mass-produced in a factory, Tolkien would love it. =)
12:39 pm
helensgirlkid

Yes, and the Elves scattered stars all over the place in their engravings - so it would be picked up, I think.
12:39 pm
helensgirlkid

Icicles are pretty much universal, too - and that's the other side of tinsel.
12:40 pm
Atalante

it started off as being "seven stones and seven stars and one white christmas tree" :P
12:40 pm
helensgirlkid

Icicles is a funny looking word today, for some reason.
12:40 pm
Vicuna

lol
12:40 pm
helensgirlkid

Of course - thanks for the reminder, ATA.
12:41 pm
Vicuna

And now, alas, breaktime is over. Time to get back to the chores - guests arriving tomorrow. I'll be back in a while when I've earned another break.
12:41 pm
Atalante

awwwww bye dear!
12:42 pm
Lilecama

bye vicuna
12:42 pm

I'm not a dear, I'm a vicuña! ;)
12:42 pm

(Meant to spell it deer. Darn correct spelling!)
12:42 pm
Vicuna

Anyway, farewell!
12:42 pm
Atalante

:P
12:43 pm
helensgirlkid

When I was little we had a lot of tinsel left from before the war. It was carefully taken off the tree and saved each year (less and less each, year, of course - and shorter and shorter, too!). That tinsel had weight, I tell you, and crinkle, and even though it was factory-made, I think Tolkein might not have minded it. But where could you get that now?
12:44 pm
Atalante

Tolkien did love Christmas
12:45 pm
helensgirlkid

Which reminds me to go hang the wreath and Chinese bat on the front door (we mix cultures and holidays rather heavily nowadays!). Good luck all.
12:45 pm
Atalante

chinese bat!!!
12:45 pm
Lilecama

bye helens
12:46 pm
dfmchfhf

chinese bat? o.0
12:48 pm
helensgirlkid

Just disappearing when I saw the Chinese bat exclamation - it is a little stuffed silk bat, embroidered in silks and hangs on a silk tasselled cord. Bats were almost as sylized as lions in China, they have very round faces! Bats are good luck, and especially associated with winter festivals in some parts of China.
12:48 pm
Atalante

I want a chinese bat
12:49 pm
Lilecama

don't you have a bat left over from hallowe'en that you could do up?
12:49 pm
Atalante

how cool!
12:49 pm
helensgirlkid

I will look out for one, and better yet, ask my son to look out for one (he's in Vancouver - HUGE China town - and he spends a lot of time there, practicing his Mandarin)
12:50 pm
helensgirlkid

MUST go bye all.
12:50 pm

2:49 pm
dfmchfhf

:o/ I walk the 1 km to and from work every day... what's so bad about a few yards?
2:49 pm
jmcnrick

the mathematics of that side street escape me

coans?
2:50 pm
redturtlehead

oops Japanese Koans.
2:50 pm
jmcnrick

2:50 pm
mixi6

It's a mile long. First down a long steep hill, them back up.
2:50 pm
jmcnrick

how can down be longer than up?
2:51 pm
redturtlehead

sort of they are errr, usually int he form of questions which are sor of juxaposing...
2:51 pm
jmcnrick

quite the athlete dfm
2:51 pm
mixi6

its a big dip in the middle.
2:51 pm
redturtlehead

like, "If I had an ice cream I would give you none, if you had an ice cream I would give you mine. and that is an "Ice Cream Koan"
2:51 pm

2:52 pm
dfmchfhf

<-- is actually really lazy...
2:52 pm
jmcnrick

*baffled* what if I don't like ice cream?
2:52 pm
redturtlehead

1 km no problem. less than a mile.
2:52 pm
mixi6

It's a dead end, so turn around and do it again.
2:52 pm
redturtlehead

It's sort of supposed to be an aid to meditation and running honestly is like an active meditation....
2:52 pm
jmcnrick

then it should be the same up as down mixi
2:53 pm
dfmchfhf

funny thing is if I take the bus instead, I'd only cut ~300m, but it would take 5 minutes longer... plus the time waiting for the bus...
2:53 pm
jmcnrick

i actually close my eyes on the treadmill red so i agree
2:53 pm
mixi6

It ends at the top of the next hill.

treadmills/gyms are so silly... people sit and drive to the gym, just to run and get nowhere, when they can run and go somewhere... or run for free... :o/

jmcnrick

2:57 pm
redturtlehead

Except for when you have to run in the dark or something like that, and then treadmills make sense. though I like running outside better, and surely do enough of it.

That's the bummer...not being able to be organized about it. It's got to be hard to make the call...

That's true; it is hard to make that decision but I worry about kids whose parents may have left after making sure they were on the bus to discover kids were sent home to an empty house
4:43 pm

McCurl, that happened here once. Storm hit around 6:15AM, when the high school buses were already on the road. They all phoned in that it was way too dangerous for driving and middle school and elementary were then closed. Parental outrage was HUGE. Me, I don't put my kid on the road in weather like that, whether the buses are running or not.

giving them one more short (4 mi ) run and if they dont shape up, they will become expensive work shoes, they are super comfortable for walking, like slippers... but ordering new Mizunos this weekend anyway, apparently they are my shoe, still.

I'm really glad that weather is usually not an issue here, but I live 2.2 miles from my job so I guess walking is always an option, sometimes I feel silly driving...

5:12 pm

A grandmother and a little girl whose face was sprinkled with bright red freckles spent the day at the zoo. The children were waiting in line to get their cheeks painted by a local artist who was decorating them with tiger paws. "You've got so many freckles, there's no place to paint!" a boy in the line cried. Embarrassed, the little girl dropped her head. Her grandmother knelt down next to her. "I love your freckles," she said. "Not me," the girl replied. "Well, when I was a little girl I always wanted freckles" she said, tracing her finger across the child's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful!" The girl looked up. "Really?" "Of course," said the grandmother. "Why, just name me one thing that's prettier than freckles." The little girl peered into the old woman's smiling face. "Wrinkles," she answered softly.

It's NOT The fact that there's pat downs. It's the fact that they're being ridiculous about it. Making a man pee all over himself and then laughing about it? That's the issue. Security measures are always needed especially after 9/11. I won't say anymore without offending anyone re: 9/11 - a tragedy itself. ANyway. back to the grid.

5:57 pm

i'm 100% totally fine with them searching my laptop. i have no issues with that. nor my carryon. but to make someone pee on himself when he has a bladder infection. then he has to go on the plane smelling like urine? thats what I Have an issue with.

Okay, lets get the story straight. This is not about a man who was "forced to pee all over himself". This was about a man wearing a urostomy bag due to bladder cancer. TSA officials ignored his claim to that, ruptured the bag, and the man was then soaked in urine. After that happened, TSA should have responded in kind. They did not. And for that, they are at fault. We can't let this one story alter security screening for people who fly.
6:03 pm
blueheron

nice area I assume?
6:03 pm
lil*monkey

How did the TSA people rupture his bag, is what I'm wondering
6:04 pm
ChampFit

That's apparently due to their frisking or patting getting out of hand, hence the freaking out.
6:04 pm
MollyL

Too rough of a pat down, Lil. Those bags can't take much pressure. They aren't meant to.
6:04 pm
lil*monkey

Hmmm that sounds unlikely... how could frisking rupture his bag? those things are pretty heavy duty

It wasn't the bag that ruptured, it was the seal that broke. That is, if you believe everything you read on the internet or hear on the news.

My son has a titanium pin in his hip. My boss has a pacemaker. Those two always have to go through "extra searches" because of their issues. It's just the way it is.
6:10 pm
blueheron

of course they are cos. Boehner needs a strip search. Then we will actually see the sh4 that he strews.
6:11 pm

And if anyone, including politicians are exempt from security procedures, that is just wrong. I guess we will have to have another national disaster to make that go away.

6:19 pm

clue for the last co6?
6:20 pm
cybernan

no the dough should not be crumbly -- it should be smooth and silky feeling -- the key to good shortbread is lots of kneading. (and you must use butter)
6:20 pm
cosdem

yeah ill try again! thanks :)
6:20 pm
cybernan

I will put the recipe in my profile.
6:20 pm

Cos, try adding a bit more butter or margarine. Too crumbly means too dry. Do that in bits at a time until your dough is moist.
6:20 pm
