5:52 am

I have 9 more minutes
5:52 am

5:52 am
MimiCat

That's right...you're working now?
5:53 am
smores

5:54 am
smores

so many things I should be doing...but, here I am :)
5:54 am
smores

still praying for ya Mimi :)
5:55 am
MimiCat

I'm thinking about ending the search until after the summer. Worried about walking to and from the bus in 110-degree heat.
5:56 am
smores

eekk...yeah that's not good
5:57 am
MimiCat

I can do the walking but can't take the heat at all. Cardiologist thinks my thyroid is totally out of whack. Am working on getting it checked so I can get on synthroid and start feeling better.
5:57 am
MimiCat

It's HELL getting OLD!
5:58 am
smores

:)
5:59 am
smores

how far is the bus stop for you?
6:00 am
MimiCat

The north-south one is nearly 1/4 mi. but the east-west is just at the corner and close. Of course, most places I need to go are north-south.
6:01 am
smores

of course
6:02 am
MimiCat

I'm proud that I can walk the distance just a year after a heart attack, though. One job interview I went on a month ago I had to walk 1/2 mile to and from the bus to the office...but I did it in 12 minutes!
6:02 am
smores

wow...good for you
6:03 am
MimiCat

Yep---tough old broad!
6:03 am
MimiCat

Oh, good, now the phantoms are coming: freak.
6:04 am
smores

kinda good you didn't get that one though...hate for you to have to do that on a regular basis...especially in bad weather
6:04 am
smores

:) pug had a great one earlier; horsemen
6:05 am
MimiCat

Yes, I agree. That one might have just killed me off! Have decided to only look for part-time anyway since I'm not sure I'm up to full-time. At least I have rent covered as of July with early retirement.
6:05 am
smores

mine was; minute
6:06 am
smores

Hope you can find one close that's just right for you :)
6:06 am
MimiCat

I keep trying taser but guess it's not in the lingo yet...or is that a z instead of an s?
6:06 am
smores

eekkk...my time is unfortunately up
6:07 am
MimiCat

I'm still waiting to hear from one that would be working at home.
6:07 am
smores

Bye for now..have a wonderful day dear {hugs}
6:07 am
MimiCat

HAGD, dear....maybe I'll see you later. Big hug.

good morning everyone.mimi. Taser is a acronym Thomas E Swifts Electronic Rifle
6:34 am
MimiCat

I was thinking about the weapon...is that a z?
6:34 am
crosshair

one of my favorite tidbits from the past
6:34 am
crosshair

that is the weapon
6:34 am
MimiCat

Hi, Trif!
6:34 am
Trifioso

Im pretty stoked - day off, big fatty grid. it's good to be me
6:34 am
MimiCat

Got the tidbits up early today!
6:35 am
MimiCat

In that case, Trif, can I be you today?!!!
6:35 am
Trifioso

hi mimi! mind you, I always STINK at remembering to add plurals, so today is gonna be an opportunity for me to work on that
6:36 am
MimiCat

I do great the first 15 minutes of these big grids but then the stupid returns!
6:36 am
crosshair

sounds like me:/
6:36 am
Trifioso

I call that "gridlock" mimi
6:37 am
MimiCat

Sorry, crossy....haven't slept so am a bit punchy....at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
6:38 am
MimiCat

It's only 4:30 here and I finally gave up trying to sleep at 3.
6:39 am
crosshair

"you know you have arrived when the best sleep you ever get in a 24 hour period happens anywhere between 1 and 3 in the afternoon
6:39 am
MimiCat

OK---so shouldn't taser, tase and tased be in our accepted words? Tis an imperfect world in which we Babble.
6:40 am
crosshair

it is indeed and there is a j that is also a proper name today,so why not taser i say
6:41 am
MimiCat

I can't ever nap so have to wait until tonight. Thanks for the support there {crossy}.
6:42 am
MimiCat

I should have tried my foolproof method for falling asleep---start watching a movie I really want to see...that usually does it!
6:43 am
crosshair

or read a chapter or 3
6:43 am
Trifioso

mimi, I have been waking up at odd hours as well - was up by 5 this morning, ugh
6:43 am
MimiCat

Our birthdays are close, crossy. As of Tuesday I will be officially older than dirt....and glad not to be under it.
6:45 am
MimiCat

Trif, I go through spurts. Lately, I'm falling asleep early but wake up by 2 or 3 so only get a bit of sleep. Didn't even get that much last night.
6:45 am
crosshair

lol,mimi.i think you said that you are just in your 60,s i think.that is barely middle age for the ladies around here.we seem to have piles of them between 90 and 110 and one was beyond(she has since passed) she was 114!
6:45 am
Trifioso

im really sorry mimi. insomnia is so horrible
6:46 am
crosshair

i have insomnia and sleep apnea,so i share your slumber woes
6:47 am
MimiCat

I'll be 62 on Tues. OMG, crossy, 114 years old! I don't even want to be anywhere near that old. It's easier for men, though, because according to either Groucho or George Burns "you're only as old as the woman you feel."
6:47 am
crosshair

funny when you think about it.i have been called a mere pup for days at my current tender age of 50 and here is poor mimi calling herself "older than dirt" just a decade or so later on.so no. you are not
6:48 am
MimiCat

It was a rough decade, dear....
6:48 am
crosshair

ahh there is nothing like a young lass on your arm to put a gleam in yer eye.just ask tiger woods and his new squeeze lol
6:49 am
Trifioso

ugh crossy
6:49 am
MimiCat

She looks just like his ex.
6:49 am
Trifioso

I dont like seeing them together....gross
6:50 am
crosshair

and you both win,you can sail through your current age crisis and she gets all your money when you have a thunderclap heart attack while playing kissy-poo one night
6:50 am
Trifioso

oh well. you pick up a snake and it bites you, you don't get to look surprised
6:50 am
MimiCat

One of the reasons I dated some younger men after my divorce was as a sort of retribution for years of trophy wives.
6:50 am
Trifioso

rock ON mimicat!
6:51 am
MimiCat

I've already had the heart attack and wasn't even having any fun first!
6:51 am
Trifioso

hmmm....maybe Mimi Cougar? :)
6:51 am
crosshair

well,that is no good ,mimi.if you are going to have a heart attack,at least be in the midst of watching the submarine races down by the bay when it happens
6:52 am
MimiCat

Oh, yeah, Trif---had to fight off the young men with a stick there for awhile. The youngest one was after me for 2 years and I finally went out with him...he was 32 years younger than me.
6:52 am
Trifioso

go mimi go!
6:52 am
crosshair

mimi is a cougar!!! hid your 20-somethings!
6:53 am
crosshair

hehe
6:53 am
Trifioso

thank goodness primo is safe and settled! lol
6:53 am
MimiCat

I felt like I needed someone's permission to go out with him, though, so I called my daughter and asked if that was just going beyond the bounds of good taste. She had no problem with it. But it wasn't fun...in my mind when he said something I was patting him on the head and thinking "Oh, you'll outgrow that."
6:53 am
crosshair

actually all the 20-something guys i have known who have been involved with cougars have all been willing victims:))
6:54 am
crosshair

lol,kept wanting to give him a lolly and send him out to play
6:54 am
MimiCat

They were the predatory ones, not me, crossy. I just kind of went along for the ride. However, now I have decided the amusement park is closed.
6:55 am
Trifioso

mimi, I think what you did is wonderful, and quite smart, especially post-divorce. I dated a couple of people who were WAY outside of my comfort zone, but how else was I going to figure out what I wanted? chalk it all up to lessons well learned, and move on smarter and more sure of yourself
6:55 am
crosshair

it can be tough when you cannot relate to the same experiences,same songs,same memories.something is always lacking that is there with someone your own age bracket
6:56 am
MimiCat

I've been blessed with many wonderful men in my life (and a couple of stinkers) so no complaints....just done.
6:56 am
MimiCat

You're so right, crossy. No real companionship without common experience and frames of reference.
6:57 am
crosshair

i mean when you say that you had a awsome 8-track tape collection back in the day,what you do not want is a blank confused stare coming back at you hehe
6:58 am
crosshair

yes,unless you are having sex 24-7, you have to have companionship and frames of reference:))
6:58 am

My best friend (female) has been my best friend for 44 years. We always say we'll end up being roomies again, rocking on the porch and waiting for our meds to kick in!

Oh, funny story about that...the condom broke and he was all upset. I worried maybe he had a disease but he was concerned about me getting PREGNANT! I was 54!
7:01 am

7:02 am

It took all my control not to burst out laughing! I assured him that ship had sailed, sank, was under the sand...gone!

7:30 am
crosshair

Habitual singing causes the lungs to release leptin, a protein manufactured by the body’s fat cells that is involved in the regulation of appetite. This may partially explain why opera stars tend to lean toward the heavy end of the scale.
7:30 am

I never finished Under The Dome. I could not stay interested in it.

Well they were called hearing aids.
But if trifocals are now progressive lenses,
we should have a hip, young sounding name for
hearing aids too.
2:13 pm
Alexis Elise

You're right. Hearing aids are freaking amazing now.
2:13 pm
Alexis Elise

They certainly could use a new name
2:14 pm
helensgirlkid

We went from bi- or trifocals with little lines at the joins which were a real pain, at least at first,and resulted in people doing a lot of tilting their heads to see through the right bit, to having a "smooth, gradual" transition - novisible line - which leaves you feeling dizzy every time you look down for a couple of weeks. But after that they really are better. I can't speak to improvements in hearing aids!
2:15 pm
Alexis Elise

My 16 year old cousin has hearing aids. They wirelessly connect to her phone, ipod, guitar, keyboard... pretty much anything. They're very cool.

They're announcing the verdict in the Jodi Arias murder trial in an hour..has anyone been following it? She stabbed her boyfriend 29 times and shot him a couple of times....I admire her restraint.

What was her motive?
2:18 pm
puglet

Ive just caught bits of it
2:19 pm
puglet

Ive been trying to follow the story of the 3 women found in Ohio
2:20 pm
MimiCat

She tried to claim self defense due to abuse but I think she got really angry because he wanted to break up with her. I think they'll come in with 2nd degree murder instead of 1st or manslaughter. Arizona is tough on all kind of crime.
2:21 pm
BzznBea

They didn't prove premeditation?
2:21 pm
MimiCat

I mean, really, stabbing him that many times and shooting him? She was enraged. Don't see any justification. I'd give her first degree but the jury came back fairly quickly.
2:22 pm
MimiCat

I haven't been following it closely. Once I saw how many times she stabbed him and shot him, too, there was nothing else I needed to hear.
2:23 pm
Alexis Elise

I haven't heard about that one but cracking up at how you admire her restraint :)
2:23 pm
puglet

sounds like she lost control
2:25 pm
MimiCat

Old joke, Alexis. I actually abhor violence in any form. Though when I was married, my fantasy life was often rich with ways I could kill him and get rid of the body!
2:26 pm

The phantom I just saw is a bit appropriate: hormones.

The victim's family broke down and cried. Imagine having to go through something like this for over 4 years....I'd need heavy medication.

Kind of hard to put on a good self defense case when you have stabbed someone that many times.
4:14 pm

And shot him, too. Gee, did she think he would come back from the dead? She was like so many men, I feel, with the attitude "If I can't have you, no one can." Crazy.

Hello, Crossy..the grid does not seem to be too bad..saying that..i still need 73 more words.
4:45 pm
crosshair

well,i have most of the biggies,no i just need to plow through what are most likely 116 four letter babblets;))
4:48 pm
zoozzoom

Ok down to 64 now..but have not come across any babblets yet.
4:50 pm
zoozzoom

For the size of the grid, that has surprised me.
4:50 pm
momof5

Sure wish lickety had a minimizing tab for each section - especially on these big grids. Then I wouldn't have to scroll up and down the entire list.
4:52 pm
zoozzoom

Momof5..i use the xbox360 to play.and it does not have any tabs..so i have to come off of the babble site to lok at the list then come off of lickety and back onto babble..lol...probably why i do not use the list often..and just stay on babble for many hours.
4:53 pm
zoozzoom

But i still enjoy it..and thats what counts.
4:54 pm
momof5

I have a windows machine and can see 2 screens at the same time. So I refer back and forth from Babble to Lickety.
4:54 pm
momof5

I usually wait until I just can't find any more, then load lickety. Then, I try to find all the 4-letter words to get them out of the way. That usually helps.
4:56 pm
zoozzoom

I usually wait for people to clue the large words.. teehee.
4:56 pm
momof5

Me too!
4:56 pm
MollyL

I am too easily confused to use split screen : O
4:56 pm
momof5

Once in awhile I find them on my own.
4:57 pm
MollyL

At least you're honest Zoom : )
4:57 pm
momof5

I love split screen. You can have as many windows open as you like (ie: Babble, Lickety, MoreWords)
4:57 pm
crosshair

i also use two screens,but mostly to glean hints from chog history when i am stuck that way i can work the grid and read the chog history at the same time.i do not use licketys too much anymore
4:58 pm

a spilt screen that is,not two seperate screens

5:00 pm

I try to get at least half of the words from each letter + NBT & NBS
5:00 pm
momof5

I think it's just a way to add some goals to the fun.
5:00 pm
BzznBea

Many people only play until they have at least one form each tile.
5:01 pm
crosshair

it is a milestone of course.it gives a sense of acheivement and a waypoint to use on the road to finishing
5:02 pm
momof5

Everyone has their own method. I start with a corner tile and try to get as many as I can before moving to the next. Just what I like to do. Sometimes I go for nbt/nbs
5:02 pm
BzznBea

My challenge of the day is, "What's for dinner?"
5:02 pm
zoozzoom

lol
5:02 pm
crosshair

same reason i put tidbits in the chog,many like it,some thing it is a bore,or idiotic,but it adds depth and facets to the gaming experience as does nbt,nbs and various forms of cluing words
5:03 pm
momof5

I hear ya BzznBea. As well as, "Who's gonna cook it?" (instead of me)
5:03 pm
BzznBea

I know who is going to cook it. ME!

I have chips, sourcream, avocado, salsa, seasoning, tortilla shells. Seems I had all the fixins and you gave me the suggestion.
5:08 pm

I was reading back about various techniques for playing Babble. Mine is simple...I play until it's no longer fun and then I quit---no goals. Takes all kinds!
5:08 pm

Many accuse me of being an efficiency expert, detailed, organized (not always to their liking). Probably why I like this game and why I play it the way I do.

Oh, and I'm having my own recipe of chicken spaghetti tonight. Easy, fast, and when I make a double batch I don't have to cook again until Sunday. Lots of caramelized onion and mushrooms with cut up rotisserie chicken, spaghetti sauce and fresh pasta---all in one Dutch oven and simmer. Top with parmesan...yum. And better the second and third day.

Avocado & crispy bacon..Yum.

So far the biggest favorite is the mock chile relleno.
5:14 pm

mimi do you make your own spaghetti sauce
5:14 pm
BzznBea

Why is it "mock"?
5:14 pm
crosshair

mmmm,bacon tidbits in avacado dip
5:15 pm
MimiCat

Nope, I use Hunt's canned Garlic and Herb sauce...good, inexpensive and easy.
5:15 pm
MollyL

The rotisserie chickens have too much sodium in them for me, so I roast my own and chop the meat and freeze in recipe size freezer bags.
5:15 pm
speedfreak

can you put that recipe in your profile thanks I love all kinds of spagetti
5:15 pm
BzznBea

Do you add any seasoning, Molly?
5:16 pm
MollyL

Yep, a bunch of herbs, garlic powder and onion powder.
5:16 pm
MimiCat

It's mock because it tastes a lot like the real relleno but is so much easier and travels well. Can use as a meal or as an appetizer.
5:16 pm
BzznBea

Mimi, does it use chilis?
5:16 pm
MimiCat

Speed, could you send your email to me at catjdesigns@yahoo.com and I'll send the recipe to you by reply?
5:17 pm
BzznBea

Molly, I have a chicken rub similar and it has a bit of sugar in it.
5:17 pm
MimiCat

Yes, it uses the mild whole green chiles but you could use jalapeno if you want it really spicy. Anyone who wants these, just email me at catjdesigns@yahoo.com and will happily send along. You'll love these.
5:17 pm
MollyL

Never thought of sugar, Bea. I'll try that next time.
5:17 pm
speedfreak

sure will and I will put Babble Recipes so you know it is me
5:18 pm
MollyL

It's too bad we don't have a recipe board here.
5:18 pm
MimiCat

You can also put a bit of sugar in spaghetti sauce to cut the acidity.
5:19 pm
MimiCat

OK, speed, will look for the email. Will send as soon as I see your message.
5:19 pm
BzznBea

Yes, Mimi, that is Hubs "secret" ingredient when he does pasta sauce.
5:19 pm
zoozzoom

Garlic powder?..Molly does not want garlic fingers hehe.
5:19 pm
MollyL

Don't say that to an Italian. Sugar is verboten in spaghetti sauce to most Italians.
5:20 pm
MollyL

I like fresh garlic Zoom. But the powders work better in meat rubs.
5:21 pm
BzznBea

My daughter's secret ingredient in her pasta sauce is dill pickle juice. LOL!
5:21 pm
MimiCat

I'm really weird...whenever I'm sick I crave Italian--mostly spaghetti. Molly, I like the acidity myself so I don't use sugar but many really like it.
5:21 pm

I use cocoa powder in mine, not hot chocolate mix.
9:16 pm
72 Temple Owl

i added a about a tb of sugar and 1/2 tb of cocoa. and chips of course. and cut butter to 1 tb. just tried even less butter
9:16 pm
72 Temple Owl

and i bake it 55 sec
9:16 pm
72 Temple Owl

i always seem to get flour on the bottom
9:17 pm
phandmd

good evening all.
9:17 pm
MollyL

Do you put the wet ingredients in first?
9:18 pm
72 Temple Owl

molly, how much cocoa? if you don't use cocoa mix then there is no milk or sugar in it
9:18 pm
72 Temple Owl

no i mix dry first
9:18 pm
72 Temple Owl

hi phan
9:18 pm
phandmd

how's it giong?
9:19 pm
MollyL

The recipe I use is:
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch salt
¼ tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp margarine
2 Tbsp milk, coffee or water
Chocolate chips (optional)
9:20 pm
72 Temple Owl

cook how long? do you recommend mixing dry into wet?
9:21 pm
MollyL

Wet first then dry helps to keep flour from sticking to the bottom of the cup. You cook it for a minute.
9:25 pm

9:35 pm
72 Temple Owl

wow. you don;t use the kitchenaid?
9:37 pm
welki

9:42 pm
MollyL

I love to cook. Even though it's just two of us now. I'd rather cook than eat out any day.
9:42 pm
72 Temple Owl

what do you think?
9:42 pm
MollyL

I've thought that Maddie was Deacon's for a long time.
9:43 pm
72 Temple Owl

yes, i think you are right.
9:43 pm
72 Temple Owl

a good episode so far. did you tivo it?
9:43 pm
MollyL

In typical soap opera fashion, Maddie will get sick and Deacon will be the only blood type match for her. No, I don't Tivo. I watch on Hulu Plus.
9:46 pm
72 Temple Owl
