I think so too. what time is it there?
3:44 am
rubyfoo

almost 11AM and I just passed half. It's easier when there are no distractions
3:44 am
chocomomo

I see.
3:44 am
rubyfoo

it took me about 50 minutes to get 197 words
3:44 am

3:56 am

you can only put the flag by your name if you pay a subscription - which is well worth it
3:56 am
Glantarell

i have no knowledge of tagalong
3:57 am
rubyfoo

you two have found a way to drive me crazy: glanta will use Welsh and choco will use tagalog!
3:57 am
chocomomo

3:57 am
Glantarell

Patxxx

I have a lost corner in my garden to be sorted later when all else is finished. We uprooted a tree and the debris lay on top of the earth until we could get it cut up and shifted. Various bits of machinery were also piled up there. We built an extension very close by. I looked out of my window last Monday and there, in that very corner, were two beautiful peonies just about to open fully. They are a rich deep pink, not scarlet and perfect, only two so far. It didn't just brighten my day it made me think although life IS also sometimes like that - a pile of rubble, given time it can turn into a beautiful time again. I've been smiling all week and it took just Mother Nature's two pink peonies not a £2million lottery win. I hope I remember the lesson all my life.
4:19 am

PS You lot cheer me up many a day!

4:22 am

I gave up with online food shopping when Sunday lunch and papers weren't delivered until Monday noon.
4:22 am
Glantarell

i can see that would be a bit of a problem
4:25 am
ChrissieDee

I couldn't have food shopping delivered - love to select my own produce, how could I smell the oranges or feel how fresh the bread is on line :)
4:25 am
Patxxx

I coped foodwise but Sunday papers should be read on Sunday, although I leave parts for later in the week and I threw a right paddy. Like a two year old. Sent myself to bed - great but NO papers!
4:25 am
Glantarell

i smell the oranges when they arrive ;-) and i make my own bread
4:26 am
ChrissieDee

I aspire to make my own bread one day
4:26 am
ChrissieDee

I won't buy the oranges unless they have a good smell - no smell means stale orange to me
4:26 am
Glantarell

it is very easy, just required forward planning as you need to leave it to rise between stages

"Swan Song" is a little darker. It's been compared to Stephen King's "The Stand". "Boy's Life" is on the lighter, more home spun side for McCammon.

When my dad died my mom discovered an org that rehabs the homeless. Cleans 'em up and outfits them and then preps them for job interviews. An incredible success rate. They got all of my dad's (many!) suits, ties, shoes & decent shirts.

I recently just found out that our town hall keeps a closet of suits and business attire in a closet. That way if someone is in need of a suit for a business interview or such, they can come and see if there is one for them.

Pneumonia or asthma. Recurrent episodes of coughing, especially if at night and with exertion = asthma. Molly, the mucous flows down slowly and infrequently, not like a faucet. PND is a wastebasket excuse for a cough.

BIch...not dirty + one who doesn't tell the truth, misspelled.

I have some typing to do. I really don't like to leave him in the house "unattended"
2:07 pm
uusue2

ooh, thx again molly, now nbs!
2:07 pm
car.eeyore

TY Molly!
2:08 pm
MollyL

I have strenuous objection to that 9.
2:08 pm
bichon

tyvm Molly
2:08 pm
Trifioso

I agree molly, that 9 is ridiculous. I can't find a way to use it in a sentence, even
2:09 pm
uusue2

my cat is cl9 than my dog.
2:09 pm
uusue2

(not that that is a sentence I would ever utter even if true)
2:10 pm
Trifioso

that doesn't really work, uusue. It would just use the =er ending
2:10 pm
uusue2

no - at any given moment my dog may be cl5er than my cat (especially if the dog has just had a bath), but my cat has cl9 habits. (I think that is correct usage)
2:11 pm
car.eeyore

Its a stoopid word.
2:11 pm
car.eeyore

right up there with nonhero from yesterday.
2:11 pm
Trifioso

I see what you are saying, but I would still say "My cat has cl5er habits than my dog"
2:11 pm
Bugsaw

I agree car!
2:12 pm
uusue2

The cat has just pointed out that she is better than the dog in every possible way.
2:12 pm
car.eeyore

That what ca4 are supposed to do!
2:12 pm
car.eeyore

Ty Bugsaw!
2:13 pm
Trifioso

I would appreciate a clue for the lone e in the right had column
2:13 pm
rastapopolous

the little knife cut cl9 than the big one.....?
2:13 pm
car.eeyore

eo 6....eo + king of the jungle but with a different second vowel (TY again Haz)
2:13 pm
rastapopolous

That being said, apparently the OED doesn't recognize it s a word. O, Enable!
2:14 pm
Trifioso

eotarzan?
2:14 pm
uusue2

eo + letters of la4/4 scrambled, often spelled with an a at the beginning, means of the air (such as an eo**** harp)
2:14 pm
Trifioso

just kidding, I got it. thanks car, I have seen that one before, but always forget it
2:15 pm
car.eeyore

No....eogeorge!
2:15 pm
car.eeyore

Ooh! Finished the N's!
2:15 pm
uusue2

yay, car!
2:16 pm
car.eeyore

I didn't even mean to! It just happened!
2:17 pm
MollyL

Try all you want folks. No one who speaks the English language is going to convince me that cl9 is a word.
2:18 pm
rastapopolous

It does seem like you should say "more cl***ly" - like the discussion we had about impiest vs more more impish
2:18 pm
bichon

hint for it Molly
2:20 pm
car.eeyore

Less than 100 to go!
2:20 pm
car.eeyore

Bichon, do you want a hint for it?
2:21 pm
uusue2

I agree, rasta (and I wasn't trying to defend the word, was just trying to use it in a sentence)
2:21 pm
bichon

yes, please
2:21 pm
car.eeyore

Molly's clue from before was not dirty (cl5) + one who does not tell the truth, but spelled a bit oddly.
2:21 pm
car.eeyore

The cat made her do it!
2:22 pm
rastapopolous

I used it in a sentence at 2:13, sue
2:22 pm
bichon

wait, I have the cl 9. What is the other one?
2:23 pm
uusue2

yes, and I used it at 2:09 and 2:10, rasta, it still seems like an awkward usage.
2:23 pm
DTins

li9/54
2:23 pm
rastapopolous

Oh, I agree, bad word.
2:24 pm
uusue2

The cat is still annoyed by it.
2:25 pm
Trifioso

five more minutes, and then I am going back to my housework....kick me off guys, have my back, okay?
2:26 pm
car.eeyore

Mt. Washmore is calling me, so I will do.
2:26 pm
uusue2

gotcha, trif, 5 minutes :-)
2:26 pm
rastapopolous

but given that ti's a non-word, I think you've used it wrong in your sentences, because it's a comparative of an adverb, not an adjective, so it needs to modify a verb.....
2:26 pm
uusue2

no wonder the cat is complaining :-)
2:27 pm
car.eeyore

My head hurts from all this grammar!
2:27 pm
car.eeyore

Clue please for OL 5/10?

a wolf,s howl does not echo...When hunting in packs, wolves use different howls to communicate with one another. Because echoes can distort communication, a wolf's howl does not produce an echo, even when emitted in a valley surrounded by mountains.

8:08 pm

Rimming of the misshaped acetabulum, and labral repair. No training for 18 months. Sad Panda. But I will be swimming.

Yes, That and some weakness noted by my coach, I can't straight lift up my left leg if I am laying flat. that seemed off, so I saw the ortho and he noted my xray had an "alpha angle"
8:12 pm

Whoooo HOOOO Jen!!!!!
8:12 pm

thanks, dc and red!
8:12 pm

8:13 pm
redturtlehead

Yes, now If I can somehow surmount the depression, I think I can handle it. next month is going to be awful.
8:14 pm
dcseain

yes next month will be awful. Hip procedures leave you way out of commission. :/ You are young for such procedure, so excellent prognosis for recovery
8:15 pm
redturtlehead

thanks DC. I'll be glad when the surgeon does his part so I can get started on my part! For now, I am just in some pain and very very irritable, making everyone at work really hate me.
8:15 pm

How is Tom doing?
8:16 pm
dcseain

He was most of the way to getting listed for heart transplant in Richmond, when his insurance company informed him that VCU is not covered, but Hopkins is, 5 months into the screening.
8:16 pm
dcseain

so, he's steeling himself to start the process over again in Baltimore.
8:16 pm
redturtlehead

Ooooh Really annoying, and why would they not do it at the beginning. :(
8:16 pm
dcseain

he was in a bit of a funk because of that.
8:17 pm
redturtlehead

If you need any Help IN Baltimore, my cousin lives there, she's awesome...
8:17 pm
dcseain

yeah, we wondered the same thing. The concept that VCU Medical Center, the largest teaching hospital and program in Virginia would not be covered never occurred to us.
8:17 pm
dcseain

thanks, red, i'll keep that in mind. Baltimore is happily only an hour away.

i know tons of peeps in Baltimore area, so when time comes, i'm not too worried.
8:20 pm
redturtlehead

I am still using Hoisin sauce on multiple things Seain, thanks for that instruction.
8:21 pm
dcseain

cool. You should check out Soy Sauce Paste -- it's a thicker, richer form of soy sauce. In real Chinese restaurants they give the paste form with egg rolls, at it sticks to the egg roll.
8:22 pm
redturtlehead

I think it would be great on some salmons. I usually have better luck with Caribean and latino foods...

8:29 pm
jesdraggon

how goes, dc?
8:29 pm
dcseain

pretty well, and you?
8:29 pm
jesdraggon

spent most of the day at work; just got home, brought work with me.
8:30 pm
jesdraggon

but at least the calf's leg wasn't broken, and the kitten hasn't died (yet?)
8:35 pm
dcseain

oh, great news about the leg, and may the kitten pull through.
8:36 pm
jesdraggon

i hope so. it's in a box on my kitchen counter on a heater right now. will probably be up with it every couple hours all night. at least it's small enough to bring home and i don't have to drive back to the clinic every couple hours
8:38 pm
dcseain

ah, premie, or just abandoned young?
8:38 pm
jesdraggon

mother died
8:38 pm
jesdraggon

it's about 3 days old, probably has aspiration pneumonia from improper positioning when the owner was feeding it.
8:39 pm
dcseain

oh, my.
8:39 pm
jesdraggon

may have immune issues "helping" if it didn't get colostrum from mom. Owner doesn't know; says she found dead cat and newborn kittens together, no idea what happened.
8:41 pm
dcseain

The other day, out for a walk with my baby niece, i saw a cat with something across the street. Suddenly, a rabbit streaked in front of me and across the street. The cat looked at it, picked up what it had.
8:41 pm
dcseain

then walked off with baby rabbit. I bet the adult one was its mother. Nature at work.
8:42 pm
jesdraggon

yup. rabbits are yummy... a lot easier that way than the reverse though; if the cat'd caught the adult rabbit, the whole litter would starve. this way, the doe can take care of any that are left, and have another batch.
8:42 pm
jesdraggon

nature is not terribly kind.

8:44 pm
dcseain

good point. the youngins are much easier prey, of course.
8:45 pm
dcseain

sigh. That academic POV seems a little over the top to me.
8:46 pm
jesdraggon

I about died when I read the objections to the use of the "wild"
8:47 pm
dcseain

same here. I mean, really.
8:50 pm
jesdraggon

i think these people could benefit from some time spent working at a wildlife rehab; maybe they'd understand that wild is exactly the correct word to use, BECAUSE it means uncivilised, unrestrained.

i just cant get the t words. gee.............
9:14 pm
jesdraggon

the cl9 is a real word; means having the quality of being more tidy
9:14 pm
mkg

weird word.
9:15 pm
mkg

why not just say cl***er?
9:15 pm
jesdraggon

because that means that something is tidier. the cl9 means a person with the habit of being tidier.
9:16 pm
dcseain

if you'd done that in a cl9 manner, you'd have less mess
9:16 pm
jesdraggon

the room is cl5, the keeper of the room is cl5ly

they are related, but not the same meaning.

my siamese-if-you-don't-please is being her usual charming self, laying on me purring, and periodically trying to pull my glasses off because the ear pieces look like twigs so she can chew on them.
9:23 pm

cute :) my elderly tabby is sitting in the window sill, watching the rain.
9:25 pm
jesdraggon

ugh. not liking the e words.
9:25 pm
dcseain

it's been mostly raining here for over a month. I spent most of April in WA, OR, and CA, while getting constant flood and tornado warning for home. Very exciting. I was hoping that tonight's storms brought no more tornados
9:26 pm
mrpresident

morning all :)
9:26 pm
dcseain

good morning, mrp :) foot doing okay?
9:26 pm
jesdraggon

heh. we're "flooding". i always laugh about the flood warnings and people fussing here... it amounts to the shallow creek in the park coming over into some of the grass. i suppose technically it's flooded, but...
9:26 pm
jesdraggon

it's not like it's covering the roads or doing any damage or presenting any danger.
9:27 pm

glad it was minimal damage, dc. we don't get many tornadoes here... had one last year about 30 miles south of here and it was a huge shock to everybody there.
9:33 pm
jesdraggon

we mostly just get wind and lightning storms. and snow in the winter.
9:34 pm
dcseain

i got to see some of the damage from the straight-line winds of '09 in Washington while driving up US 101. Wow, i knew that straight-line winds were dangerous and did damage, but i had no real idea of the scale. Amazing.
9:34 pm
lbdawger

we dont' have the right conditions for tornado's Jes. not that they can't happen, just not as likely as in the flats.
9:34 pm
dcseain

here is not flat, but we still get them.
9:34 pm

terri and I found a baby black kitten! we have adopted it and terri is taking it home to her son tonight. He is going to love it!!
9:34 pm

a friend of mine was hit by a tree about 3 years ago during a wind storm.
9:35 pm

well, DC gets the heat island effects for tornados.

9:36 pm

it was kind of spooky
9:36 pm

glad he came out okay, jes.
9:36 pm
jesdraggon

took the end of his nose off. that's a mighty close call, right there.
9:36 pm
dcseain

i'm glad you and yours came out okay from those winds, too, mccurl
9:36 pm
lbdawger

mother nature can have some real hair raising experiences in her bag of tricks.
9:36 pm

being hit by a tree would be too frightening!
9:37 pm

I live about 20 mins from MrP. We are good friends and our kids get on really well.
9:37 pm
mcurlschool

I really considered myself lucky because just a year before that we lived in a single side mobile home surrounded by HUGE trees that would have come down for sure----we took them out and put in a new home.
9:37 pm
dcseain

nifty, terri, nice to make your acquaintance. I live in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC
9:37 pm

leanto isn't a word? it is around here!
9:44 pm
lbdawger

take to o off, jes
9:44 pm
lbdawger

that should read, take the O off, jes.
9:45 pm
jesdraggon

i got that word, dawg, thanks. but a leanto is an open faced shed with a slanted roof. it is definitely a word!
9:46 pm
dcseain

sometimes it's hyphenated, which may be why it's not accepted
9:46 pm
lbdawger

i agree, Jes. we have them on this side of the mountain too.
9:47 pm
lbdawger

time to head for the pillows. see you all tomorrow. gl with the grid!
9:47 pm
jesdraggon

heh. there's no system to the words Enable doesn't accept, DC. why does it like tegu but not degu? if anything, degus are more common critters. and it won't take cria (baby llama), but it'll take 2 spellings of tenrec? *shakes head*
9:47 pm
jesdraggon

sleep sweet, dawg :)
9:47 pm
dcseain

g'night dawg, sweet dreams
9:49 pm

linea is also a word--it's the connective tissue "seam" where the abdominal muscles meet.

10:08 pm
mrpresident

every morning at 1am it is out on the street when I take my dog for a walk... no collar, can't feel a microchip, and skinny
10:16 pm
dcseain

wonderful news, jes :)
10:16 pm
jesdraggon

yeah, mrp. how old is it?
10:17 pm
jesdraggon

you walk your dog at 1am? why are you awake and about at such an hour?
10:17 pm
jesdraggon

wouldn't hurt to take it to a clinic or shelter to scan for a chip, even if you can't feel one.
10:18 pm
mrpresident

only a little thing... about 4 months old?
10:18 pm
mrpresident

am taking him to the vet now to get him scanned for a chip
10:19 pm
mrpresident

if he is owned by someone, they will contact that person and in the meantime, I will take care of it until they get it
10:19 pm
mrpresident

if they don't want it, they will sign over ownership to me
10:19 pm
jesdraggon

yay! good on you, mrp :) and thanks for picking it up. it's very good luck to be adopted by a cat (or so i'm told by the cats that've adopted me)
10:19 pm
mrpresident

jes, I don't sleep much since the carbomb
10:19 pm
jesdraggon

ah
10:20 pm
mrpresident

I will give it to terri... it has to be deballed!!
10:21 pm
mrpresident

she has a son and he has no siblings of dad or anyone, so it will be good for him (he is 13) to have the company of a pet
10:22 pm
mrpresident

p's are done!! 200 to go
