sorry about the garble.
12:17 am
rururocks

what's that about harp
12:18 am
VolleymomDee

Chaos here, too... hubby's mom put in the hospital over the weekend for blood clots in her lungs. Hoping meds will get her home by the weekend. She had a big family Christmas planned for her house - found out today, it is going to be here.
12:18 am
jillibus

ouch, dee!!!
12:19 am
rururocks

wow dee.. you just DID a big party
12:19 am
VolleymomDee

Hopefully, everyone will pitch in on food, but some are coming from different states.... had to sit down this evening and take a breath to keep my temper. I do hope she can come home, but that is exactly why I am nuts, ru :)
12:20 am
VolleymomDee

Thanks for "getting it", ru.
12:20 am
rururocks

that is not fair
12:20 am
VolleymomDee

I don't want to be a brat, but it is so much work... feeling a tad overwhelmed.
12:21 am
VolleymomDee

Hubby great, but truly doesn't understand how much work is involved.
12:21 am
jillibus

I should think so, dee!
12:22 am
VolleymomDee

I am thinking will do a huge ham, some frozen sombrero spread, and meatballs, and they can bring the rest :)
12:22 am
Lizlin

Hi all :)
12:23 am
VolleymomDee

Hi, liz!
12:23 am
Lizlin

Wow Dee! More entertaining! Make it easy for yourself!
12:23 am
VolleymomDee

Do you have all those presents purchased, jili?
12:23 am
Lizlin

Love the icon, too!
12:23 am
melonheadjujube

You are NOT being a brat VMD!
12:24 am
VolleymomDee

That is what I am thinking, Liz! Kids will be in Friday night, and I think they will help. Thanks, mel. Hubby thought I was "unreasonable" to think it's a big deal.
12:24 am
rururocks

great.. then he can do it
12:24 am
Lizlin

Daft hubby. Book yourself a few days away and leave him to sort it! LOL!
12:25 am
VolleymomDee

Also, what I was thinking tonight, ru :)
12:25 am
VolleymomDee

Wow, Liz, would I LOVE to do that!
12:25 am
jillibus

Most of them, dee, I think.
12:25 am
rururocks

I have to say it's really unfair for them to expect you to jump right in
12:25 am
Lizlin

Well, even if you don't do that, try and organise some time out for yourself at some point!
12:26 am
VolleymomDee

We have the most room, so I am expected to help.
12:26 am

12:26 am

OMG! Just spotted 17 x k!
12:26 am
jillibus

That's the trouble, eh, dee? You do a great job and it goes so smoothly, so everyone thinks it's no big deal for you to do it again.
12:26 am
flosey

but that isn't just 'helping' Dee
12:26 am
Lizlin

Help is fine - any other sibs or kids who can pitch in!
12:27 am
VolleymomDee

Exactly. Took a month to plan the other one... this will be about 10 days... called cleaning helper to have her come a couple of times... I'll give her extra money. Nope, just one daughter and son-in-law.
12:27 am
rururocks

the to 6 bowled me over tonight
12:28 am
VolleymomDee

great clue, ru!
12:28 am
Lizlin

Hugs, Dee - tough for you. I'm sure it'll work out though :)
12:29 am

doesn't work for me, the disguise. A rose is a rose, and smells like one, no matter what name you give it...
2:24 am
Lizlin

Sounds like you need 'em.
2:24 am

hi rose
2:24 am
grannyrose

wading through funeral service and accompanying handot for guests. SIL dropped all that into DH's lap, today.
2:25 am
grannyrose

ugh, handout, even
2:25 am
Lizlin

Does she ever do anything helpful?
2:25 am
sprite

that SIL is really something. Any reason at all to keep seeing her after the funeral?
2:25 am
grannyrose

liz, she creates chaos very well.
2:25 am
Lizlin

Hmmmpf!
2:26 am
sprite

so her full name is Fang Enthropy.
2:26 am
Lizlin

Love it!
2:26 am
Lizlin

I could be much less subtle.
2:26 am
sprite

*giggles*
2:26 am
grannyrose

she assured funeral directors and us(to our surprise) that OUR vicat was going to do the service. was also a surprise to our vicar.
2:27 am
grannyrose

*vicar*
2:27 am
sprite

amazing. I wonder, rose, doesn't anyone ever stand up to her and say here, YOU do it.
2:27 am
Lizlin

I'm sure she was delighted! (Tis a female vicar, isn't it?)
2:28 am
grannyrose

coming close, sprite, coming close. poor vicar was absolutely apologetic. she already has something on her diary for friday at the same time.
2:29 am
joso

how are don and fang anyway?
2:29 am
sprite

poor vicar. She doesn't have anything to be apologetic about, it is SIL's fault. As usual.
2:29 am
Lizlin

Don't take too much more, Rose. Not good for your stress levels.
2:30 am
Lizlin

How are your legs today?
2:30 am
grannyrose

need i remind you all we still have to clean out MIL's rooms. SIL has already frantically done an initial search for an opal brooch she says FIL gave MIL. not anywhere obvious!
2:30 am
Lizlin

Like you can do that right now!
2:31 am
grannyrose

joso, don is doing amazingly well. i wouldn't be fang for quids. she does anything to upset him, she is gonna wear it, majorly.
2:31 am
sprite

good grievance. She is way beyond fangdom. I wonder, can narcissism be inherited through inlaws?
2:32 am
puglet

I say after this funneral, lock up the house and you and don take a nice long getaway
2:32 am
Lizlin

Funny pugs, I was thinking that.
2:32 am
grannyrose

liz, leg is quite good, considering. a little swelling, but that is to be expected. tomorrow i am trying for a pj day...in bed for most of it.
2:33 am
Lizlin

I really hope you make it. Not sure of protocol at the funeral, but will you be able to sit through it?
2:33 am
sprite

I think I would tell Fang that without mother Mac needing the occasional alternative caretaker, there is no reason left to keep seeing her.
2:33 am
joso

do you not have on pj's now?
2:33 am
sprite

great idea, rose. A nice long lazy day with reading and all.
2:34 am
puglet

I think Sprite should come to you and stand guard at the door--lol
2:34 am
sprite

yeah, let me at her. You need a Fang in your life like a boil on your ass.
2:35 am
Lizlin

Sharpen the teeth, sprite and at her!!!
2:35 am
Lizlin

Let Fang meet Fang!
2:35 am
sprite

foregone conclusion, Liz. She hurt my rose. She is history.
2:36 am
Lizlin

Same!
2:36 am
sprite

oh Liz, I like them! Great sculptures for on the beach or in a park
2:44 am
grannyrose

i just wanna scream when others take advantage of him.
2:44 am
sprite

hard to imagine he is letting her walk all over him, rose. Does he never tell her off?
2:45 am
puglet

He probalby just takes it to keep peace within the family unit
2:46 am
grannyrose

pugs, you have it in one.
2:46 am
puglet

for I know I do that alot myself
2:46 am

we had the same thing with moose it Toronto a while ago
2:47 am

I admire you guys. I'd have told her my thoughts by now, for sure. She'd be wearing scorch marks.

Lizlin

That would've been fun, Joso.
2:47 am
sprite

oh nice, joso
2:47 am
grannyrose

*sigh* coming closer and closer...just DH and me...so looking forward to it.
2:47 am

2:48 am

at long long last, rose. Not far now. So very lovely.
2:48 am

I was wondering Joso if you had moose and bears coming into your city
2:48 am
Lizlin

Now the koalas are scattered around the Gold Coast.
2:48 am
joso

so no great rush to clean out MIL rooms, no new relative like fang moving in
2:48 am

3:31 am

3:36 am
puglet

I hope I didnt hurt your feelings Sprite
3:36 am
sprite

lol I know what you mean. Yes, Tim is the one acting out, Caya the one bottling things up. Better than the other way around, though it isn't easy on either of them.
3:36 am
sprite

you could never hurt my feelings, dear one, even if you tried. You are such a loving heart.
3:38 am
puglet

does your school have like sock-hops or prom dances
3:39 am
Jivingjenny0

clue for the A in the top left corner and for the I in the bottom row please
3:39 am
sprite

don't know what a sock-hop is. No, we don't have prom dances. But we do have school parties. The one before Christmas is always very nice, with most students dressed up nicely.
3:40 am
puglet

sock-hops are dances that the school here has a few times in the year to raise money for different things
3:40 am
sprite

ai4/4 is for the top A, rhymes with hanging around killing time.
3:41 am
sprite

ah, ok, yes they do stuff to raise money for charities.
3:42 am
sprite

il4/4 for the bottom i, I think. I + first three of someone telling untruths
3:42 am
puglet

and switch the top A and you have another word there
3:44 am
puglet

are you about done here
3:44 am
sprite

fireflies. Guess it is time for me to climb Mt. Washmore and get dressed. :( I wanna go to jigidy but still down, they are checking the database now.

Evening, Lyn
5:40 am

Quiet here this evening.
5:41 am
lynxxx

Probably the clever people have already finished
5:42 am
Lizlin

Could be right about that. I usually like to leave some for tomorrow!
5:43 am
lynxxx

that's what I do too - hate leaving so many though - just not seeing enough words
5:44 am
Lizlin

Me neither - still have 78 left here. Don't know how some of the babblers manage to play right through the night!
5:44 am
Lizlin

Mind you, I'm still an hour earlier than you, so not giving up yet.
5:45 am

howdy,lynxx.was making some tea and toast when you came on:)
5:45 am
lynxxx

73 here too
5:45 am
Lizlin

Hi crossy :)
5:47 am
crosshair

that is a perk about being aussie. You can start the grid before bed and when you get up,it is still the same grid. here of course the flip is 01:00 est,so, if you go to bed at night,you wake up to a new grid
5:49 am
Lizlin

I like the timing here - flip at 3.00 pm in our winter (your summer) and then at 4.00 pm at this time of year. I do some in the afternoon, when I get back from the gym, some a bit later on, some before bed and complete the next day. Very relaxed!
5:50 am
crosshair

lol. indeed. here, when there is a tough grid, it becomes a case of "do I sleep tonight or finish this?"
5:51 am
Lizlin

Tough choice!
5:51 am
lynxxx

I do some late afternoon with a coffee then a bit more after dinner, leaving just enough to do with my coffee in the morning (and with the list at that point) before heading out - thats the plan anyway - except when they are monsters
5:51 am
crosshair

then,for me it is bed at one am and up at 5 am
5:51 am
lynxxx

4 hours! are you serious?
5:52 am
crosshair

I can never,ever,ever sleep past 5 am anymore
5:52 am
Lizlin

I aim to list as late as possible but must get at least half. That's my challenge. I just listed at 80, tonight.
5:52 am
crosshair

the afternoon power nap has now become king
5:52 am
Lizlin

Wow! 4 hours!
5:52 am
lynxxx

why don't you go to bed earlier then?
5:53 am
crosshair

it is a process. I find as I get older my sleep times are a disaster
5:54 am
crosshair

tried going to bed at 9 pm once..was up at 1 am:(
5:54 am
Lizlin

Yay! k's complete!
5:54 am

yaaa!

my cats are going insane.all cats are A.D.H.D
5:55 am
Lizlin

Feed them!
5:56 am
crosshair

just did.that is why they are frisky
5:56 am
Lizlin

Ah! Don't know much about cats! Put them outside?
5:56 am
lynxxx

oops you remind me that I haven't given Stew his dinner (only small just to get his arthritis powder into him) BBS
5:56 am
Lizlin

Play with them!
5:57 am
crosshair

nope.inside cats only.too many outside cats are lost to the road or coyotes here
5:57 am
crosshair

yes.they need some good play time
5:57 am
Lizlin

That's fair enough. I think I have more understanding of inside pets. What's the point of a pet that's outside the whole time?
5:57 am
crosshair

but after my tea and a bit of babble
5:58 am
Lizlin

Walking over the keyboard? So if rubbish comes up, I'll blame the cats.
5:58 am

I am having a bit of fun today at school. will be taking a suicide prevention course. they will train us to spot the behaviours and precursors and how to handle it . we will get a certificate at the end of it all
6:00 am
crosshair

lol.cats can type better than I do
6:00 am
Lizlin

Useful course. Better than maths.
6:00 am
crosshair

yup.day off of math,because my math teacher is taking the same course
6:01 am
crosshair

some empty seats in the clas were offered up to the students. a 200 dollar value for free.i jumped at it
6:01 am
Lizlin

Observe the maths teacher carefully for suicidal tendencies! Have you driven them to think of suicide?
6:01 am
Lizlin

Seriously interesting, though.
6:01 am
crosshair

do not know,but I may have to talk myself out of "jumping for it"
6:02 am
Lizlin

"Don't Jump!!"
6:03 am
crosshair

make her think of suicide?? that is a riot. bet she has a whip fetish on the side.this class is fifty shades of algebra!
6:03 am
Lizlin

lol!
6:04 am
crosshair

after a real hard test yesterday,i asked her if she does spankings as well
6:04 am
Lizlin

and her answer?
6:04 am
crosshair

made her spray her coffee all over her computer monitor:))
6:05 am
crosshair

she said perhaps,but I could probably not afford it
6:05 am
Lizlin

To misqote jbp - a coffee dragon!
6:05 am
Lizlin

At which point your coffee sprayed!
6:06 am

now,at which point I said "nevermind then,i get all the punishment I can handle from the mrs for free"

I had a pet rock once,but it had an attitude problem to I replaced it with a chia pet
6:10 am
o-o

Hello
6:13 am
crosshair

problem was that the chia pet was in the caracture of Jean cretien, so I had to beat it to death with my pet rock
6:13 am
Lizlin

Vicious ending!
6:14 am

it was. Now with cannabis almost legal,i am thinking of trying a weed chia pet

crossy needs some Tylenol:( brb. got the results from the MRI yesterday and they are a mess,as I thought
6:19 am
crosshair

at least now i know the best thing for me at this time is tylenol arthritis instead of tylenol 3,s with codene. the date with a neurosurgeon,however, is not what I was wanting to hear
6:20 am
Lizlin

Not sounding good.
6:20 am
Lizlin

What did the results show?
6:21 am
crosshair

severe artritis in one of the sections,a severe narrowing of the area where the bundle of nerves go through and a vertical hole running the length of my spine(a birth thing)
6:21 am
crosshair

he gave me the C designation numbers,but I forget them atm
6:22 am
Lizlin

Are they thinking surgery then if you have to see a neurosurgeon? And how do you feel about that?
6:23 am
crosshair

i will consult with the neurosurgeon,get him to fill me in on all the risks of operating versus all the risks if i delay until i am crawling on all fours or can no longer hold my head up and decide
6:23 am
Lizlin

When do you see the neurosurgeon?
6:24 am
crosshair

it is to be announced. here,all the big neurosurgeons are in the cities to the south, 200k away
6:25 am
Lizlin

Ah! So not an exciting prospect at all!!!!!
6:26 am

You might consider wearing a halo brace
6:26 am

with todays technology,you would think that my doctor could send him all the x-ray,CT and MRI images and theat we could consult on Skype or something
6:26 am

are they talking about spinal fusion surgery?
6:26 am

Drive to Toronto or similar?

I have been using Better World Books, great site and free shipping on all books all the time. both new and used books. for every book you buy they donate a book to someone in need.
8:15 am
MimiCat

There's another great site for books, Annie....it is alilbris.com. You an get books that are hard to find and out of print and many as low as 99 cents. Great for textbooks, too. I got a textbook 2 years ago that would have cost $125 at the campus bookstore for $8.95 at alibris.

I had a bigger car and SuperStormSandy took it. Leased the Civic and not sorry.
8:27 am

A car that sits higher up. So I don't have to sit down into a bucket. Too much back twisting.

Through early morning fog I see
visions of the things to be
the pains that are withheld for me
I realize and I can see...
[REFRAIN]:
that suicide is painless
it brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.
I try to find a way to make
all our little joys relate
without that ever-present hate
but now I know that it's too late, and...
[REFRAIN]
The game of life is hard to play
I'm gonna lose it anyway
The losing card I'll someday lay
so this is all I have to say.
[REFRAIN]
The only way to win is cheat
And lay it down before I'm beat
and to another give my seat
for that's the only painless feat.
[REFRAIN]
The sword of time will pierce our skins
It doesn't hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger...watch it grin, but...
[REFRAIN]
A brave man once requested me
to answer questions that are key
is it to be or not to be
and I replied 'oh why ask me?'
[REFRAIN]
'Cause suicide is painless
it brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.
...and you can do the same thing if you please.

hi everyone
6:23 pm
Lizlin

Hi all :)
6:23 pm
Lizlin

If you're still here, Nan, the first ye 5 is a pl of ye 4 /10
6:45 pm
Rows

hi LIz
6:46 pm
Lizlin

Fireworks. Hi Rows.
6:47 pm
Rows

ooh congrats
6:47 pm
Lizlin

ty.
6:47 pm
Lizlin

Any thoughts about what you're going to video?
6:47 pm
Rows

my demo?
6:47 pm
Rows

i did it today
6:47 pm
Rows

took a video of myself reading a book to the kids...
6:47 pm
Lizlin

Yes, the demo. Did it go well?
6:47 pm
Rows

it was not bad
6:48 pm
Rows

overall i think it showed my strengths
6:48 pm
Lizlin

How old are the kids you teach?
6:48 pm
Rows

the kids weren't on their best behavior, but for that reason i also got to show my classroom management skills
6:48 pm
Rows

they're 3 and 4
6:48 pm
Lizlin

Do you think that's interactive enough?
6:48 pm
Rows

yeah it was an interactive type of book
6:48 pm
Lizlin

Ah! Good. Very interactive, then.
6:49 pm
Rows

it was a book called "busy fingers," and on each page the people are doing different things with their fingers, so i had the class try all those things
6:49 pm
Rows

now i just have to figure out how to compress my video
6:49 pm
Lizlin

At that age, most stories are interactive. The youngest I've taught is 6 - 7 and I remember how they loved joining in - esp. when I read Where the Wild Things Are.
6:49 pm
Rows

it's taking forever to upload
6:49 pm
Lizlin

I guess you could google that.
6:50 pm
Rows

yeah, been looking
6:50 pm
Rows

it's not easy to find much for linux
6:50 pm
Lizlin

Don't know about linux!
6:51 pm
Lizlin

Take it to a computer store - perhaps they can help.
6:51 pm
Lizlin

Or perhaps there's a computer chat forum for linux.
6:52 pm
Lizlin

You've probably thought of these things yourself!
6:53 pm
Rows

well, computer stores aren't such an option here
6:53 pm
Rows

but i am trying to just upload it to google docs... it's taking a long time but that could also be my connection being slow
6:53 pm
Rows

so i'll try to let it upload and see how that goes
6:54 pm
Rows

thanks for asking about my video :)
6:54 pm
Rows

how are you?
6:55 pm
Lizlin

Fine here thanks. Sitting around this morning because we're having the annual pest control thing done - spraying around the house and garden etc.
6:55 pm
Lizlin

Boring but necessary!
6:55 pm
Rows

ah yeah
6:55 pm
Lizlin

Any clues before I go?
6:55 pm
Rows

we've had some of that in the evenings a couple times here
6:56 pm
Rows

well i've only barely started, so i'd feel a bit silly asking for any clues at this point :) but thanks
6:56 pm
Lizlin

I guess it's what comes of living in a sub-tropical climate.
6:56 pm
Lizlin

OK - it's not a bad grid. The last 30 were a bit sticky for me. Good luck.
6:56 pm
Rows

:) thanks!
6:57 pm
Lizlin

Good luck with the job - if I don't catch you before! Have a good evening (is it evening now in Honduras?)
6:58 pm

7:30 pm
crosshair

I cannot eat coconut,seems like I chew forever and am never ready to swallow it
7:31 pm
crosshair

a box of macaroons lasts me a long time:)
7:31 pm
uusue2

these are fairly large chunks, and only lightly sweetened, I really like them as a snack
7:32 pm
crosshair

a good healthy choice for sure
7:32 pm
uusue2

unfortunately there is almost nothing I cannot eat (although I am supposed to minimize caffeine as it has a bad effect on my blood pressure)
7:33 pm
crosshair

I on the other hand have a tin of whole roasted cashews sprinkled with sea salt calling to me from the counter in the kitchen:)
7:34 pm
crosshair

is regular black tea better over coffee with cafene? I cannot remember
7:34 pm
crosshair

caffeine
7:35 pm
uusue2

I think tea has a bit less caffeine than coffee but I drink decaf for both (also decaf green tea)
7:35 pm
wvteach

** finito ** last word AN 6/18
7:36 pm

no green tea with the flavonoids is supposed to be good for you on many levels,but sadly, I cannot get used to it

8:11 pm
Minveryork

A te 5/10 is te4/4 plus a vowel and other is plural of te4.
8:11 pm
Minveryork

I came to this websi 4/4 this morning.I have given up on grid so now I will do a nice ge 4/6ure and give you a story of clues. I do not like to hang out with drunk people. I think they make a lot of no5/10 and are the no 8/40 people to have to be around. It really ge4/6 on my nerves when drunk people to 4/4 with the idea of driving when they are not at all po 5/12d to get in the driver's se4/4 & they would fail a sobriety te4/4. When you do not let them drive,they get really nasty and don't give one io4/4 about their behavior. It also ge 4/6 under my sk 4/8 when drunks start to cry out of the blue. I think that drunks should take no 4/4 of their obnoxious behavior before they start drinking again. Hubby op 4/5 to use computer so I need to st 4/5 babbling now.I hope you were able to get il4/8 of my clues & that you have seen more words with your ey4/7 to add to your li4/4. I'm going to get out of my se 4/4 & go do something el 4/4 like watch the movie Si4/8wood. I will be back later on toni 4/4 and st4/6 for awhile to chat & help give some clues.Bye for now
8:12 pm
harpjane

I'm looking for a te5 that is BEFORE any of the te4's so it can't be a plural
8:14 pm
penquis

te + ***ison (someone who bridges the gap between two agencies, e.g.)
8:14 pm
