Wow, yesterday's scores were great -- God bless that cute little letter S!
What was the 9letter/72point word?
well I was up till Midnight ( Im in the UK )with my eyes on stalks last night griding Christine SOoo Yeah it was a good one BUT at what cost *rubs eyes* think I need to get out more ;) lol
Christine, it was "helotries." never heard of it!
i wish i'd heard of colewort. :( bet it doesn't taste too good, either.
why doesn't this allow cetyl [alcohol]?
you can get to 500 without it, at least. :) goin back to sleep & perchance dream of colewort.
hm. that would be nice. am on 470.
a little tougher today. can't just add "s"
for you that like that for the extra points
nudged it up to 600; back to bed for 40 winks
HELOTRIES -- bloody hell, I had HELOT, juat disn't look far enough. Thanks 4t8, for the info - I'll be reade next time.
Heck, it's too early in California -- my computer can't spell (just what you need when playing Babble.)
To the "Cetyl" person, I agree with you about "Cetyl" because it took Maya.
Ok, now what's with the puzzle, it wouldn't take "mutt".
I'm crosseyed, need to drink some more coffee so I can see.
No etal but it took a spanish word
My kingdom for an "r" and a "s".
It took meta but not alta.
Perturbed, taking a break.
thanks for the tip on the spanish word. I had skipped putting it in about 5 times! Struggling at 453! Actually, struggling the whole way.
Hows goes it today Guys ?? :) SHhhhh Yess I'm peaking in AND determined NOT to put that first word in as I have a big PR Job in the morning, and dont want to spend my whole dear here lol
Thats the trouble Once I start Cant keep away *shrugs* hmmmm looks rather awkward this one!
"mutt" isn't in the puzzle
Ooosy sorry ment to say Day! not Dear *rollseyes* thats how I get most of my words with typos lol
note to dustyfleas: it takes maya, the buddhist term for illusion, rather than Maya, the pre-columbian civilization.
Nil, how was the nap?
the nap invigorated me to the extent that i now tally 637.
63 words 4.62 821
i need a dictionary of 7 & 8 letter words. on the bright side, i'm only 4 words behind.
I have 1-7 and 1-8.
may i remind you of what the Good Book says, in the abundance of words wanteth not sin.
And wasn't it Teddy Roosevelt who said,"Speak softly but use 7 and 8 letter words"?
either everyone in here is really smart, or i'm a total idiot, cause i only got 156
back for more. stopped earlier at 582.
Damn. I wish I'd spelt pittance right in my head before thinking I'd found it in the puzzle...
those would've been great points!
why, i wonder, is platten not allowed...
(Glass Making) To flatten and make into sheets or plates; as, to platten cylinder glass. http://dictionary.reference.com/search?r=2&q=platten
4t8 - to make up for that, it will give you credit for words that are not found in the dictionary. I've been told that this is referred to as Babble welfare.
i see. thanks, lawyer-1.
There are at least four words in today's puzzle that are not in Babble's dictionary, yet they are accepted in the puzzle. Two of them are 6-letter words. That is why entering random letters sometimes works.
CHRISTINE, I'M STRUGGLING TODAY!!!!
TOM YOU JUST DO NOT HAVE IT IN YOU
hello nanny how many have u got?
The one that pops up when you click on the "?" next to a word.
I've hunted and hunted.
I've invented words aplenty.
I've tried "creative" spellings.
I've prefixed and suffixed all over the place ... and yet the 7 & 8 letter words still elude me.
dustin, I am an idiot too
most disappointing that Pythian isn't allowed--it's a proper noun. :(
made 800 but still no 7+ words
I feel no disgrace is gleefully stating that i've found a 7-letter word ;)
