Saozinha, pregunta. Sao from Sao Paulo, and inha for little??
ooh, la! saw the 3rd 55 after you wrote that. thank you. :)
mulhermujer - Very good guess. It's supposed to be a nickname for another name, but in my case it's actually my "real" name. Most Portuguese people assume it's a nickname. Oh, and don't ask me to write Portuguese. I can read it and understand it, but can't write it.
68 words 4.57 673
Saozinha, cool name. I can read and write some, but I cannot understand the spoken word. Too fast, just like espanol. My real name is shellei (pronounced just like shelley).
i must be tired....i cannot find any of the 8's
Nice to "meet" you, Shellei. :)
I can usually understand spoken Spanish if they talk slowly. Of course, who speaks slowly. :p
I keep seeing purple!
100/1397. but i usually have a hard time after the initial round. my guess is 4000 points on this one.
Ya know, I'm gonna shove both Portuguese and Spanish words down his throat. He's not gonna know what to say when he starts school. Ha!!

Wow.. I think the final score on this one must exceed 5500 - I have 2368, and that's just the words that jumped at you .. so far, nothing over 8...I need a cuppa before I start looking for the longer words.
good moring all!!
i only have 4's and 5's....
yea i have a six. lol
i have 4 sixes now!! lol
Well I finally got 200 words for the first time! That's quite enough for me for today. (200, 5.06, 3046). That includes two 9s and eight 8s.
I found the adhesive-related 9. Any clues on the other(s)?
I got the other 9 due to a clue that may have been accidental a few hours ago in the log, when someone else was saying that there were two words it wouldn't take. The other 9 and a connected 8 rhyme with the words that were refused.
oh thanks Kukuna! I've just figured them out now! LOL
235 words and two bleeding eyes .... i declare myself all babbled out for the day!
there are 5 words worth 179 points that all stem from the root word.

What a great spot to stop and post your score, lawyer! :)
I always had a flair for the dramatic!
This is a fun one :-P
out for now-lata
G'morning, K! ;o) Yes, this is one to sink your teeth into...
I've found 3 Q-words so far...any more out there?
Hi Jemper :)
I've got 2 that start with Q and one with a q in the word itself...
I meant words that start with Q...though I don't think I have the one with Q in it. :oP
Got that 3rd Q - should have gotten it sooner! :-P
Found it. Thanks, K!
193 words / 4.95 / 2697
(sounds of struggle in background)
I'm done for the night!
101 words / 5.04 / 1520
(looking forward to seeing the top score on this puzzle!)
3 words starting with Q, 1 with Q in ..
203 words / 4.93 / 2790
That's it for this morning -- I may or may not be back to find those medium-long words which I'm obviously still missing.
BIA have you found the other nine? If not, look at the early posts - there are two words mentioned... substitute a starting letter..
Now, I need to find the third Q word.
ANy clues for the other 9 - I've got the one you're talking about Christine ....
Thanks for the clues. I found my first 9 letter word! WOO HOO
Winner are you playing? This is your sister asking?
Yes, found the other 9 a while ago ... thanks for following up!
Atalante -- think of wallpaper....
That bloomin' Q-word is drivin' me dotty.
Got it, thanks for that clue!!!
I found 2 Q words but can't find the third one.
I found a third Q word. I just added an s to one I alread had. Any more Q words.
Marianne -- come help yer big sistah.
Christime sre you there?
I'd give you a clue on the Q word but I don't know which one you're missing ... let me see - there's a 5 and 6 very similar, and something Arthurian
whew! got the Q's and both 9's...now I just need to find more words! :p spend all your time looking for 9's and you only end up with 108 words
Atalante, I believe I have the three Q words you are "talking" about. but I can't find any of the others.
ick are there more *sigh* I'm more than half asleep at the moment sorry ..!
i dreamed about this puzzle last night. how sad is that?
Try adding ed and s to words you already have. This is for the newbies. I know the oldtimers know this. I have over a 1000 points and been playing for 45 minutes. I like this puzzle.
There's a four letter Q that's a bird, but it won't take it.... still, I realized I do have the three Qs and a word with a Q contained in it, so I think I'm going back to my mystery novel..
100 words, 4.93, 1386. My BEST score so far. Need to take a break. Will be back later.
Why won't it accept arial? As in an "arial photograph"?
Never mind. I'm a moron that can't spell.
christine- the bird isn't spelled the way you think it is
251 words 5.14 4000
lawyer, why am I not surprised ast your score? :)
How many "q" words are there?
Because you know me?
because I've been here long enough to know you'll cream the rest of us :)
Didn't you notice that Bulldog has more words than I do?
Why won't it take perp???
Cause it's short for perpetrator (if I'm even spelling that right). One of the many shortened words it doesn't accept.
argh and wallpaper for a clue????
Gonna go play EQ be back later have 2 pool parties hope we dont get fried
One addiction for another, huh Tol? (I'm not one to talk, I play too)
WOW I just got a 9 letter word for 84 points. My best ever.
lawyer and bulldog, how many words do you have now? I am up to 140, 4.84, 1817. This is just great for me.
did it start with p periwinkle?
meggiemoo, yes it did! Did you get it too?
i think so
Why does the clock say 1.28 when it is 19.56 ? And does the 9 er end with tesque ?
My 9 er ends in ed
OMG, I now have 150 words, 4.89, 2030. My best game ever so far. Need to take another break. See you later. The game is taking most of my guesses today.
Any clues with the 9 er please ? I 've got some 8s but can't see that one.
there are a few good clues for the 9's in the chat log
someone asked about Q words...I've got 3
daddy, this is hard!
Thanks I've got the 9 now, I thought I done that combo but I hadn't typed them
in! I have all 3 qs and the one with q in it, too.
Butterfliesmama, there is a word with a q in it as well.
170, 4.90,2308 great game for me.
taking another break. Not sure I can find any more.
Got the 84- and 72-point nines - are there any others?
Not that I've seen or heard about
Are there really three words beginning with Q plus the one with Q in it. I have two words starting with Q and one with Q in it.
Yes, there really are.
uh oh, is the last one an obscure word or something I might use in conversation?
It's not obscure, but it's not a word I use often at all. It's definitely a real word - think Arthurian legends.
one is another word for funny, the second is just adding a letter to the ending of the first, and the third is another word for journey
I have the three Q words, YEAH
I actually had all three Q words but had not checked my list before I asked my question. Thanks for the hints tho
i miss having the game stats.
I am done. Too tired. 184, 4.95, 2483. Best game ever.
are there any "U" words?
Meggiemoo - there's another name for guillemot, quet, which isn't accepted, but is in a couple of the dictionaries used by the Babble-bods.
Hey meggiemoo, which are u? Also I haven't found any yet and I've been looking since one this morning.
Don't understand why it will take one Persian word but won't take piri, which is another and regularly used in crosswords.
Anyone got a clue for the second 9 er ?
Hi, MK -- how're your scores?
This board is driving me dotty - I have three Q-birds that aren't accepted....
PHEW! Found the 2 9's and 4 8's....just one more 8, right?
There are at least eight 8's....
Eight!?! Wow, I better get cracking! :oP
Heh, well, assuming you've got the two 8's associated with the two nines, I'd concentrate on 'R' words....
I've got two 8's starting with R...will keep looking. Thanks!
No problem, I've got 5 that start with R, in case you're interested.
I wouldn't be surprised if there were more though!
any more 8's hints?
Think re- and think -ed
thanks, I just got one but that was a long shot! Didn't even know it was a word...
cool...just got another...thanks Justin!
I'm having no luck with the i's....
Thanks, Justin, for the R hint.
Darnit! 42 away from 2k. C'monnnnnn!
Haven't had time to read the whole chat log -- can't wait to have DSL -- it takes *forever* to enter words and for the first time ever I'm seeing words faster than I can enter! Whoohoo! ;-)
Sorry to vaporize last night in the middle of emails. DH came home & offered a back rub -- I couldn't turn the computer off fast enough ;-D
15 R words, 16 S words, and 21 P words so far...
Ah, got it!
146 words 4.94 2021
Can't believe I went 10 hours not seeing the darn erase group. Seriously. Work is too distracting. ;-)
Hi Mom! So far 34 Rs, 19 Ss and 36 Ps.
Nahnahbooboo! ;-P Maybe I could actually beat you in Scrabble one day! ;-D
8-7's, 5-8's & 1-9
Hi Sweetie...27 Ps now... ;^p
I only have 2 i's and 1 U
i keep seeing 'priest' and 'replaster' ;-P
Hi M! No worries about ditching me, I'd have done the same! ;o) Gotta go hunt for that U word and the erase group...
kk back from pool party but brain is burnt..not gonna find anymore will try with new puzzle in the morning...have a good night all (first must play eq, what server you on Jaiishiian)?
My all time high....hurray for me! My left contact is getting sticky, so time to turn this thing off! A very fun puzzle!
I think I'm done...
This is my first time playing so I think I did ok.
perhaps i should quit here.
So far, 9 A's, 7 E's, 2 I's and 1 U-word...and still hunting for that last, elusive 9'er
Or rather, the last (elusive) 8'er. I've got 2 9's & 7 8's.
Jemper -- I have 11 Es but only 7 As. Going to have to turn in soon and I'm still finding words ;-/
12 E's here.
three U words...all similar... almost time for bed though...;^P did you find them Melody?
I know, I just found a few D's (somehow skipped words starting with D's). Only 20 minutes left to this puzzle!
3 U words? Yikes, I've been sitting here forever trying for just one...
Aww Jeeze.. stupid graveyard shift gets me sooo turned around. I didn't mean to start this one..
Thought this one was the next one..
I got the botanical one (U word), would love some clues on the other 2...
calling it a night.
2x9, 7x8, 8x7
hah hah the last lord I find means to do it in a great hurry, Irony
Oh yikes, if it's a botanical one, I for sure wont' get it!
4 u words
botanical? must be at least four then... if you do better then you are u******
compound word, second word starts with R
with 2 minutes left, i'm at 100 wors 5.17 1675 - my highest ever I think. Plus I'm only been playing for 35 minutes. Time for bed methinks.
