i just dreamed that lisa bonet (denise, cosby show) was appearing on oprah because she had multiple personality disorder and the two personalities had found a way to occupy the same body AT THE SAME TIME. the left half looked like her, and the right half was the other, a guy. when lisa talked, only the left side of the mouth moved, etc, and vice versa. they had slo mo footage so you could better observe the truth of these phenomena. anyway, the two personalities had fallen in love and were looking for a state that would allow them to marry.

Hello, hurshy .... do you think politicians have DID since they so often speak from both sides of their mouths?
2:07 am
scouser

drey is a perfectly good English word - it means a squirrel's nest. Huh.
2:07 am
hurshy

good one BR :)
2:07 am
dfmchfhf

yeah, scouser, I entered that countless times.
2:08 am
dfmchfhf

well, actually, it was countable. Eight times.
2:08 am
scouser

Hi hurshy - how do I get a little union jack on my screen? ta
2:08 am
BabbleRabble

grodier is not accepted
2:09 am
hurshy

you have to pay to be a "pro" member, and then tell it that you live in great britain (which in my case is merely wish fulfillment).
2:09 am
scouser

thanks hurshy
2:09 am
hurshy

brabble, i am struck with awe.
2:10 am
BabbleRabble

I hope it does not leave a bruise.
2:11 am
hurshy

aw, doesn't leave bruises
2:12 am
BabbleRabble

Are the students on break?
2:12 am
hurshy

no, it's reading period
2:14 am
scouser

there's a bit of confusion here I think. I put in edge and edger and it has put them both against the E in row 4 place 3, but you cannot do edger from there.
2:14 am
hurshy

no, it has them from row 3.
2:15 am
hurshy

it hasn't got any words in 4, 3.
2:15 am
hurshy

and you must be new. try not to put words in the chat. we refer to such things as ed5 and ed6
2:16 am
scouser

Yes well it tells me I still have two to from row 5, I am getting edgy!
2:17 am
hurshy

3 ed and 4 ei from there.
2:17 am
scouser

I will have to go for now. Byee
2:17 am
hurshy

oops, was i too harsh?
2:18 am
BabbleRabble

No, not at all.
2:18 am
hurshy

ok.
2:19 am
hurshy

well, let's see if i can get back to sleep now. good to see you brabble! ttfn all.
2:20 am
BabbleRabble

Good luck, hurshy

rubyfoo

good morning
2:26 am

good morning all
2:28 am
rubyfoo

{{sprite}} are you fluless?
2:29 am
sprite

flu- and clueless, lol. Yes, thank you, no more fever and getting some of my energy back even.
How are you?
2:30 am
rubyfoo

I just wrote a long (and boring) weather report in the wrong box.
2:30 am
sprite

lol
2:31 am
sprite

it is pretty bad here as well. I even took the kids to school by car today, it is that bad.
2:31 am
rubyfoo

at least the snow is gone!
2:32 am
sprite

not here, yet. At this moment we have snow, hail and ... hey I do not know that word. When the world glazes over all of a sudden.
2:32 am
rubyfoo

ice storm?
2:32 am
rubyfoo

oder
2:32 am
sprite

no... wait, I will look it up.
2:32 am
rubyfoo

whoops, sorry, river but not a word.....
2:33 am
rubyfoo

diot is a sausage!!
2:34 am
sprite

hm, seems to be a dutch thing. To freeze over, to ice over... glazed frost, graze ice.
2:34 am
sprite

glazed ice
2:35 am
sprite

you know, when you go into a cinema and the streets are clean, and you come out and everything is covered in an incredibly slippery layer of ice.
2:35 am
sprite

if diot is a sausage, then what is idiot?
2:35 am
Haz1558

Sheet ice
2:36 am
Haz1558

id5 is a word in the grid.... Good morning/evening all.
2:36 am
rubyfoo

someone who eats it, as it's awful!
2:36 am
sprite

sheet ice? Ok, thanks Haz! My dictionary doesnt have that, I will add it.
2:36 am
rubyfoo

hi haz
2:37 am
Haz1558

Hello! It's still freezing here as well.
2:37 am
sprite

lol @ rubyfoo, good one
2:38 am
sprite

it is crazy weather. But apt for the season.
2:38 am
dfmchfhf

hi {{ruby}}, haz, sprite! :o)
2:39 am
sprite

hello dfmchfhf
2:39 am
Haz1558

Hello, dfm.
2:39 am
rubyfoo

{{dfm}}
2:44 am
sprite

yet another grid that refuses to flow for me. Is it tricky?
2:45 am
Haz1558

I was finding it okay at first.
2:46 am
sprite

hm ok, then I ne4 to kick my brain awake more.
2:48 am
rubyfoo

Japanaese sticky bean, na***, not a word. but miso and tofu are....why?
2:48 am
sprite

because enable is very partial
2:49 am
rubyfoo

and is a very picky eater (no rosti or diot either)
2:50 am
sprite

the peculiarities of enable are part of the fun of babble
2:51 am
rubyfoo

off for a second breakfast!
2:51 am
rubyfoo

see you later
2:51 am
sprite

lol I haven't even had my first one
2:51 am
sprite

enjoy, rubyfoo
2:51 am
dfmchfhf

Enable doesn't like drey (squrrel house) or grodier either. :o(
2:51 am
rubyfoo

must be from a different shtetl! lol
2:51 am
dfmchfhf

I should go to bed. Eventually.
2:52 am
sprite

eventually, we all should
2:55 am
sprite

*smug* I greyed out the upper row.
2:58 am
Haz1558

I knew you'd pick up the pace eventually.
2:59 am
sprite

I could feel your trust in me
2:59 am
Haz1558

Experience.
3:00 am
sprite

:)
3:06 am
sprite

one of the first babblets I learned is in today. The female serf.
3:15 am
KatieMcG

catching up on Corrie - gosh it's good
3:15 am
sprite

hello Katie
3:16 am
Haz1558

Hello, Katie.
3:16 am
KatieMcG

hello everyone :-)
3:17 am
dfmchfhf

hi katie! :o)
3:22 am
sprite

I am off to get some breakfast etc. See you later all.
3:22 am
Haz1558

See you later, sprite.
3:24 am
dfmchfhf

have a nice morning sprite :o)
3:26 am
KatieMcG

some of the acting in corrie has been fantastic
3:27 am
Haz1558

It's strange to have no moments of light relief at all. The only amusing thing is trying to work out how Stape is going to get rid of Charlotte.
3:30 am
KatieMcG

I'm just really impressed with the quality of it
3:32 am
Haz1558

I was going to say that it's changed from Ena Sharples' time, but apparently they've always had disasters.
3:33 am
Haz1558

And speaking of disasters, did you see Apprentice last night?
3:33 am
KatieMcG

no I haven't watch any of it, was it good?
3:35 am
Haz1558

I'm beginning to think Lord Sugar has lost his mind. He let one of the best candidates go in favour of someone who announced that he wasn't a one trick pony, he had a field of ponies just waiting to run towards the prize.
3:35 am
KatieMcG

noooooo you would need to sack him just for that
3:35 am
gran

How many words today please
3:36 am
Haz1558

Exactly! He's rude, obnoxious, conceited and bad at most of what he attempts. I've got no idea why he's still there except for Lord Sugar's mind going.
3:36 am
Haz1558

140 words, gran.
3:36 am
gran

Thanks
3:37 am
Haz1558

You're welcome.
3:38 am
FMitch

Morning all.
Is the grid friend or foe today?
3:39 am
Haz1558

Good morning, FM. It's not too bad at all.
3:39 am
KatieMcG

Hi FM not sure yet
3:39 am
dfmchfhf

Hi FM! :o)
3:40 am
FMitch

Still snowy Haz? and what about where you are Katie?
Hi dfm.
3:40 am
KatieMcG

just icy and cold here, though it did try and snow again this morning
3:40 am
Haz1558

The snow has not diminished at all, still very cold although we've been promised a rise in temperature today.
3:41 am
FMitch

any rise in temp from -10 has to be good news.
3:42 am
Haz1558

Our neighbour has just got back from a fortnight working in Cairo where temps were late 30s. A wee bit of a shock to the system to come home to this!
3:43 am
FMitch

Oh ho I bet!!! Hope the house was all OK and no burst pipes etc.
3:43 am
KatieMcG

Mum & Dad landed at 5.30am this morning, it was a joy to pick them up form the airport lol
3:44 am
FMitch

lol Katie, I could have done that for you as a cold call co tried to fax my phone at 4am this morning so I was awake.
3:45 am
KatieMcG

Oh that is so annoying!
3:45 am
Haz1558

No, his family were all still at home so the house wasn't empty.
3:45 am
FMitch

Where had they been Katie?
3:46 am
KatieMcG

Dominican Republic, I tried to let them know how much warmer it was today
3:46 am
FMitch

*not jealous at all*
3:46 am
KatieMcG

they were having none of it
3:47 am
FMitch

I saw you were both talking about Corrie earlier - quite a week isn't it and what a story line.
3:48 am
Haz1558

There have been so many storylines all building towards this week.
3:48 am
KatieMcG

Oh poor Ashley
3:48 am
KatieMcG

I've just caught up!
3:48 am
Haz1558

It'll save him having to move to France...
3:49 am
FMitch

I know!! but when is someone going to find Rita?
3:49 am
KatieMcG

you knew he was a gonna as soon as claire made that phone call
3:49 am
Haz1558

It puts you off working in a sweetie shop.
3:49 am
KatieMcG

4 funerals and a wedding. So far thats Ashley and Charlotte so there are still 2 more to go
3:50 am
KatieMcG

See if she hadn't wanted the chocolate she would have been fine
3:50 am
Haz1558

I don't see how they're going to have a wedding.
3:50 am
KatieMcG

yeah might be a death bed one
3:51 am
Haz1558

The only way will be to convert the hospital ward and have a death-bed wedding.
3:51 am
FMitch

I knew he was going as there was something in the press a while back.
Perhaps it will be one of those last min one in hospital.
3:51 am
Haz1558

Bye bye Peter, in that case.
3:51 am
FMitch

lol great minds and all that.
3:53 am
Haz1558

So, that's three accounted for (if you include mad Charlotte). It's a toss-up between Sunita and Molly for the last. I choose Molly since she's leaving the programme anyway, but who knows?
3:54 am
KatieMcG

I'm thinking molly is going to confess to Sally and then die
3:54 am
FMitch

I don't think Charlotte counts
3:54 am
KatieMcG

I'm sure she does FM
3:54 am
Haz1558

That would set the cat among the pigeons. No tea for Kevin for a month.
3:55 am
FMitch

Oh what happened to Jack's pigeons, (train of thought)?
3:56 am
FMitch

Did Tyrone get to keep them?
3:56 am
KatieMcG

they moved to the country with him and are being looked after by that random blonde woman who was a pigeon fancier that he lived with
3:56 am
FMitch

ah.
3:57 am
KatieMcG

even Jack knew that Tyrone was not capable of looking after pigeons (let alone a baby)
3:57 am
Haz1558

Maybe they started plotting the storyline way back then. 'How do we make sure the pigeons are out of the line of fire?'
3:58 am
FMitch

I am giggling away here about what lurking babblers must be thinking of our conversation.
3:58 am
KatieMcG

I'm concerned about the ginger cat
3:58 am
Haz1558

That baby in the rubble is a doll, isn't it? One of those animatronic ones, although the way Molly threw the real baby about, I always had my heart in my mouth.
3:59 am
Haz1558

That baby in the rubble is a doll, isn't it? One of those animatronic ones, although the way Molly threw the real baby about, I always had my heart in my mouth.
3:59 am
Haz1558

Sorry for the echo echo echo
3:59 am
KatieMcG

it was very realistic at one point but yes def a doll
4:00 am
KatieMcG

I am now watching the final of I'm a celebrity.. I'm very behind
4:01 am
FMitch

I decided to give that a miss this series.
4:01 am
FMitch

and just couldn't get into The Apprentice either this time.
4:01 am
Haz1558

I haven't watched it for a long time, although you do hear snippets in papers etc.
4:02 am
FMitch

oh I say ... blue sky and sunshine!!
4:03 am
Haz1558

The Apprentice always throws up the most random assortment of bigheads.
4:04 am
FMitch

How about Strictly Come Dancing? Anyone watch that?
4:05 am
Haz1558

Again, snippets and what I can glean from the papers.
4:07 am
rubyfoo

lurking in this chog is a hoot!!!!

Hi herin and ruby!
4:08 am
sami1986

hello, how many words today please?
4:08 am
FMitch

glad we are entertaining you ruby :)
4:08 am
Haz1558

Hello, herin and ruby. I thought you'd not have a clue what we're talking about.
4:08 am
Haz1558

140 words.
4:08 am
rubyfoo

unless you live in a very colorful neighborhood, you must be talking about a soap?
4:08 am
FMitch

140 sami
4:08 am
herinfernallady

I have a clue
4:08 am
sami1986

thanks
4:08 am
rubyfoo

it is better than TV (which is BTW, still out because of the snow(
4:09 am
Haz1558

Yes, a soap which has been going for 50 years and which is having a huge disaster to celebrate.
4:09 am
FMitch

LOL!!! that is brill re the colourful neighbourhood - but you surmised correctly.
4:09 am
rubyfoo

50 years!
4:10 am
FMitch

I think Coronation Street now hold the world record for the longest running soap.
4:10 am
Haz1558

Yes, indeed. There's one actor who has been in it the whole time, right from the first episode.
4:11 am
rubyfoo

and he now uses a walker?
4:11 am
rubyfoo

half!
4:12 am
FMitch

I am blaming Haz and Katie for the fact that I haven't entered a single word into the grid yet.
4:12 am
Haz1558

No, he still looks remarkably fresh for his years and even had the umpteenth affair a couple of years ago. As his mother in law said 'an actress who lived on a tug-boat' - actually a barge but it was a trilliant moment.
4:12 am
Haz1558

Even a brilliant one (where did trilliant come from?)
4:12 am
rubyfoo

if I can offer some modest help.....raofl!
4:13 am
rubyfoo

trilliant must be a portmanteau for many-brilliant
4:13 am
FMitch

you were getting carried away?
4:13 am
rubyfoo

imagine me helping FM....too funny
4:14 am
FMitch

((ruby))
4:15 am
FMitch

herin you still here? I hear congrats are due for the new job!
4:16 am
rubyfoo

I didn't hear. Congrats, herrin, that is wonderful!
4:16 am
herinfernallady

1 moment
4:18 am
FMitch

ruby are you still snow bound?
4:18 am
rubyfoo

no, it melted on Tuesday, but still no satellite and mail is screwy
4:19 am
rubyfoo

husband is ed***r than usual
4:19 am
herinfernallady

Yes. I have a JOB> Starting next year
4:19 am
herinfernallady

Sorry had to ring the gas company
4:19 am
rubyfoo

that is very good news, herin
4:20 am
FMitch

yay herin, well done!
4:20 am
Haz1558

Going to take a quick break. Katie is obviously spellbound with 'I need panto work, I'll do anything'. Bye for now!
4:20 am
herinfernallady

Thank you. I had forgot that I hadn't been on here when you were about. Very busy week
4:20 am

Bye for now HAz

4:23 am
herinfernallady

Don't you love trying to pay for a bill and teh bank wont let you
4:25 am
FMitch

4:26 am
FMitch

4:26 am
herinfernallady

No idea with the bank.
4:27 am

pain in the butt then b:(
4:28 am

I must go have to make a couple of phone calls, TTFN and congrats again herin.
4:29 am
herinfernallady

Thanks and enjoy
4:37 am
sami1986

Herin, have you had much rain there?
4:40 am
herinfernallady

Yes we have
4:41 am
sami1986

4:43 am
herinfernallady

No flooding here

redturtlehead

hello Herin. Sorry it is still wet where you are. Too much at the same time ehh?
4:53 am
herinfernallady

I take it that Lickety has an extra word in his list - am I correct
5:06 am

Hi Gran - there are 91 words in this grid (haven't checked what Lickety has yet)
5:06 am

Hello all
5:07 am

Hello, Lynxxx
5:07 am
zoozzoom

there are 140 words today.

Don't know what grid you are doing lynxx but there are 140 words.
5:07 am

Hello Zooz.
5:08 am
FMitch

Hey zooz!
5:08 am
zoozzoom

Hello, FM :-)
5:08 am
lynxxx

Oh jeez - Soooorrrry Gran!
5:08 am
zoozzoom

maybe you have 91more to find :-)
5:08 am
FMitch

How are you doing over there zooz, hope you are warm and snug.
5:09 am
lynxxx

thanks FM - I forgot I was here at the flip (finishing yesterdays) and had a few already
5:09 am
zoozzoom

It is slowly warming up here, we did have 4 inches of snow for a couple of days then the rain washed it all away :-)
5:09 am
zoozzoom

Is it still bad where you are, FM?
5:09 am
FMitch

Greetings lynxxx :)
5:11 am
lynxxx

I must say I had forgotten how horrid flip-time is
5:11 am
FMitch

Most of the foot of snow has gone but it is still v icy however they say it could go up to =6 over the weekend.
5:11 am
zoozzoom

Flip time is 6:00am here.
5:12 am
lynxxx

=6 ?
5:12 am
FMitch

Flip time is strange these days isn't it lynxxx.
5:12 am
zoozzoom

Not good then, FM :-(
5:12 am
FMitch

+6
5:13 am
lynxxx

People are just too frantic about getting and calling words - nutso
5:13 am
FMitch

Haz was reporting -10 as day time temps yesterday and still lots of snow.
5:13 am
lynxxx

6 degrees? or is that inches of snow
5:14 am
zoozzoom

It does get very manic, i have tried it a couple of times, but decided i would leave it to the professionals..lol
5:14 am
zoozzoom

it is about 2c here at the moment.
5:15 am
FMitch

Oh I wish I could string a coherent scentence together Lynxx - that is +6 tem wise which means things will thaw out but then the big freeze is due back next week.
5:16 am
lynxxx

seems like Santa WILL need a sled to get to you all.....hope it won't be like this ALL your Winter though - we shall have to come over and chip away at the ice to get you out
5:17 am
zoozzoom

lol
5:17 am
FMitch

perhaps we should all come over to your neck of the woods for the winter :)
5:18 am
lynxxx

bring your flippers though - lots of flooding over here - but other wise all hot and steamy
5:19 am
FMitch

Katie was saying earlier that her parents have just flown back from the Dominican Republic, bit of a shock to the system on their return.
5:19 am
zoozzoom

hope no flooding where you are then , Lynxxx.
5:21 am
FMitch

we could go scuba diving!
5:22 am
zoozzoom

Got my snorkel ready :-)
5:22 am
lynxxx

Probably not. I live in a flood prone area - very close to a canal which is a natural creek course emptying into the Bay. It used to flood up to about 25 years ago but they have done quite a bit of work to it so probably ok
5:23 am
lynxxx

Wrong state - think you need to go up to Qld for that
5:23 am
lynxxx

..but you could pop down here afterwards!
5:24 am
lynxxx

Qld = Queensland
5:26 am
FMitch

Qld did translate but my Aussie geography obviously needs improving.
5:29 am
FMitch

As there is still blue skies and sunshine I think I had better bid adieu and got and do stuff/run errands.
TTFN.
5:29 am
lynxxx

I am bottom right, just above Tasmania - Queensland is top right. Barrier Reef is just off to the right of Queensland
5:29 am
zoozzoom

Nice to see you, FM, Bye for now.
5:29 am
lynxxx

bye FM, enjoy it while you can
5:43 am
zoozzoom

Ok half way, time for a cuppa.
5:44 am
lynxxx

I'd better finish for the night...bye Zooz
5:44 am
zoozzoom

Nice to see you, Lynxxx, Take care.
5:48 am
Sally-catlover

Hi zooz. Coming on very late for me. Yeah! Temperature is above freezing for first time for ages.
5:51 am
zoozzoom

Hi, Sally!..sorry for the delay, was making a cuppa ;-)
5:52 am
zoozzoom

Yes it is warming up here too.
5:52 am
Sally-catlover

Yes, I realised after I posted my message :-)
5:53 am
zoozzoom

Although i have heard that it might be getting very cold again in a few days time :-(
5:53 am
Sally-catlover

:-(
6:14 am
crosshair

good morning from the snowy frozen north minus 16 with wind chill of minus 21 and another foot of snow last night!
6:15 am
Sally-catlover

Hi crossy. Always have to go one better!
6:15 am
Sally-catlover

Seriously, are you keeping warm yourselves?
6:16 am
zoozzoom

Makes it sound like it is summer here, Crossy..lol
6:16 am
crosshair

lol,we are fine as long as the power stays on..this is what we do:)))
6:16 am
Sally-catlover

I don't think we know what winter is :-)
6:16 am
Sally-catlover

If power goes off, do you have log burners or alternative heating?
6:17 am
crosshair

no,you do not..not even close lol even this pales from when we lived further north when i was young
6:17 am
crosshair

yes,we have alternate heat sources indeed
6:18 am
crosshair

i have a kerosine radiant heater for emergencies
6:19 am
crosshair

1 quart of kerosine provides 16 hours heat,tis a nifty thing
6:20 am
Sally-catlover

We have a fantastic log burner, and are well stocked up with logs. Keep it in all the time when it's below freezing.
6:22 am

up at the cottage we used to have a small wood stove,used to love it,but it is the type of heat that when you come in after working outside all day sit in front of it and eat some soup or stew first thing you do is fall asleep lol
6:23 am
zoozzoom

I have crappy economy 7 heaters, which makes it hot in the morning & cold at night, but when it is below freezing, the house does not go above 15c, so have a halogen heater too.
6:23 am
Sally-catlover

lol crossy, well that's not so bad. Ours seems to keep the whole house cosy, in addition to the underfloor heating we have.
6:23 am
zoozzoom

Log fires must be wonderful.
6:23 am
crosshair

oooo radiant floor heating...nice
6:24 am
crosshair

nothing like a log fire...
6:24 am
zoozzoom

oh what i would do for under floor heating.
6:24 am
Sally-catlover

We had a log fire initially when we built this house crossy, but realised that it wasn't efficient when we had a period with no other heating. So we had a proper log burner installed which is brilliant.
6:25 am
Sally-catlover

The underfloor heating is run off an oil-fired boiler :-( and has warm water running through the pipes. It doesn't feel hot to the touch unless you leave clothing or a cushion on the floor, then when you pick them up they feel warm.
6:25 am

if you are talking about a central log furnace,yes they are nice for larger places

strange. for an email at 10:59 from my manager that read "meeting in 2"
i have no meeting on my calendar, so i emailed her back asking for more info. no response. also texted her with no response.
i walked around to all the usual meeting rooms, no manager, and she isnt at her desk.

Eva, did the manager mean 2 min or at 2 o'clockj?
10:23 am
Anniebrook

hello dfm
10:23 am

"new" is a cryptic keyword, peri if you look it up it'll probably help
10:23 am
dfmchfhf

hi annie :o)
10:23 am
EvaNadine

i dont know, peri.
if she meant 2:00, i figure she would have sent an appointment, but she didnt. not much else i can do, so i will ask her when i see her...

Eva, to me, "in two" means "in two minutes".
10:26 am

10:27 am

maybe "in two hours"? o.0
10:27 am
dfmchfhf

or "in two days", or possibly two years, or decades, but then that's just being silly.
10:27 am
EvaNadine

again, if she meant in 2 hours, i figure she would have sent an appt... or at least put more detail in her email...
10:28 am
dfmchfhf

maybe she meant "in two seconds" and you missed it! :oO

(seriously, that happened to me once.)
10:29 am

im not too worried, as we have a lotta down-time right now, and she is fairly laid-back.

2:47 pm

jmc - I get mine trimmed now about every 8 weeks and treat myself to a wash and blow at the hairdresser too. Had long hair for ever but got it chopped off about 4 years ago - best decision I made.
2:48 pm

the staff asked me my vision for the org and i said you had to be part of the org for at least a year before you can have a true vision -- but my general one was to make it welcoming to all Friends
2:48 pm

7:16 pm
HelenaB

oh, thanks
7:16 pm
dfmchfhf

If I told you what it were it'ld be too easy, helena ;o)
the semordnilap is with regards to de7. <
7:17 pm
dfmchfhf

the fi7 also curiously sounds like a canine trained in rescue from burning buildings.
7:17 pm
HelenaB

ha, i got the fi7 by looking at my orange cat and thinking of your hearth clue ;-)
7:17 pm

Do we ever run out of chocolate in here, red?

I have to admit I hate dark chocolate.
7:25 pm
dfmchfhf

helena extend the n4 before your n7.
7:26 pm

poop, that's what i thought i should do
7:26 pm
MollyL

A Google search on "I see hips and fourteen paper clips" leads to an entire page about Allan Sherman.
7:26 pm
redturtlehead

I could use the African clue?
7:27 pm
HelenaB

red - it's an antiquated term for people of African descent
7:27 pm
dfmchfhf

hmm, a search about "hips and fourteen paper clips", on the other hand, doesn't.
7:27 pm
MollyL

Think of the "n word" red and end it with the robot suffix.
7:27 pm
redturtlehead

oooh I found it.
7:27 pm

ae8 (cryptic) A gassy new rife idea
8:10 pm
MollyL

Occasionally, Lickety's list includes a word that Enable (what guides the grid) does not accept. It helps to compare the total on the front page, with Lickety's total. If there is a discrepancy (like today...Lickety 141...front page 140) there is one word too many on Lickety's list.
8:10 pm
HelenaB

ae8 is tricky.... do you have ae5? i can clue from there
8:10 pm

my grandson loves Legos, books, and has helped me many times on Babble. He loves computers. We leave tomorrow for two days at the state LEGO tournament. The large number of kids there will be a challenge for him, but working on the team of 10 kids has been great for him. He also loves music and can play several instruments by ear. But can't stay with the discipline of practicing

I know a couple that are major LEGO sellers..they actually make their living selling LEGOS and seem to do very well

this is called "second year medical student syndrome"

you're doing perfectly fine dfm.... :-))) No worries there !!

wouldn't the world be boring, if we were all carbon copies. I love the differences in human beings and embrace them all. After all, who can REALLY say what is normal and what is not!
9:49 pm

I think all of us have some of these habits from time to time....it's what makes us interesting...
9:49 pm

exactly my point :-)
9:50 pm
MPittore

Diane...Snap!...I agree 100%
9:50 pm
dfmchfhf

oh yes, I'm not worried about the ADD part... but more the autism/asperger's...
although it may very well explain a lot of things about me (e.g. extreme antisocialism, my own weird way of learning things (I don't learn unless I have at least two separate sources/inputs of information), and possibly delayed development...)
9:51 pm
dianedecoder

I like my table at right angles to my wall, or parallel to..... no angled stuff for me.... little idiosyncrasies, but just me
9:52 pm
MPittore

The benefit in knowing is that you then can learn to live happily with it...I do little tricks to keep me on target...like I make lists and cross off what I accomplish and what I don't goes on the next list...it works!
9:53 pm
dfmchfhf

but the other problem is that I don't know! :o(
9:53 pm
MPittore

I also Love to learn but I have to sit in front of the class to avoid distractions and I hear it, see it, write it, read it and sometimes read it again and that gets into the medulla!

That's happy news Diane! Glad to hear it!
9:55 pm

Anything she reads, she KNOWS.... problem solving, or coping with the unknown are more difficult for her.
