12:13 am
boatierra

Aye, from that last puzzle, I cannot believe I missed torc and nonreader. I looked at some other lists. I really think I could do better if I just put a little umph into it.
12:16 am
nutkin

12:18 am

Blast, it won't take 'swater'. I could be trying to stretch it though.

2:12 am
genny

hmm...i've been googling "parts of an opera" :) i have a 4 and a 5 letter opera word...i wonder if that has something to do with the 8?
2:14 am
genny

2:19 am

2:23 am

yes the 4 and 5 are related to the 8, but the eight is smaller,hint,hint
3:12 am
Huh

Morning all :) Wahhoooo I have moved into the Top Ten in the Rankings :o :O *hands around drinks*

Oopsy remeber a bit of Modesty Sue ;) lol AND see an 8 WHICH has nothing to do with an Opera CAN THE DAY GET ANY BETTER?? ;)

JESSSSSSSSSSSS ?? LMAO!!
4:55 am
Atalante

ohhhh my - I just put a word in thinking how lovely it would be if it really was a word, not even thinking that it would be accepted and it was *faints* and it was 8 letters!
4:55 am
Atalante

and its an 8 for 75, by the way ;)
4:56 am
Aussie Goddess

Hello Sue......dont push ma buttons blondie :p
5:15 am
Jemper

Any clues on these big-scoring words? ;oP
5:53 am
Jemper

('cuz I'm getting nowhere with the opera hint)
6:05 am
Christine

jemper - what's a verrrry common word in xword puzzles? Then pluralize it (is that a real word?), then minimize it, then pluralize it, again.... whew - it's exhausting work, but worth about 80 points.
6:09 am
Jemper

Sounds like a great clue! Unfortunately, that's not going to help me. I avoid xword puzzles like the plague...may have to ask my SIL (who's a xword afficianado).
6:22 am
discodave

Well, I got a fish word. But it's more polish than piscine...
7:00 am
eyezzz

If I got a point for each time the puzzle tells me "that wasn't a valid word" I think I would be over the top with points today :P
7:05 am
Jemper

OK, found the 8-lttr word that Bulldog gave a hint for. Now, if only I could figure out that 48-pt J word!
7:06 am
Jemper

Christine ~ Got 'em, thanks! ;)
7:11 am
Jemper

Gotta love taking a break...found that 48-ptr. Only 60 words though, more to find!
7:26 am
Jemper

Atalante ~ I'm doing the math on your 75-pt 9-lttr word and I'm not seeing how that's happening on this board?
7:27 am
Atalante

does the 48 J start with j or have j in it??
7:27 am
Jemper

(oops - make that 8-lttr)
7:28 am
Jemper

The 48-ptr has J in it...
7:29 am
Jemper

Nevermind, just figured out the math. *blush*
7:31 am
Jemper

(I think)
7:36 am
Jemper

Atalante ~ Is your 8 ptr word obscure, and/or a compound word?
7:36 am
Jemper

8 ltr (sorry for all the typos)
7:37 am
Atalante

he he - the 75 pt one is two words joined together. rather animal-y.
7:37 am
eyezzz

I just got a 6 ltr word with j at the end that I can't find at dictionary.com :? It's worth 48 points, whatever it means :P
7:39 am
Jemper

Yup! There is a definition on Webster.com, if you're curious (I was).
7:47 am
Jemper

This word is gonna be like that one a few puzzles back...seedeater, I think?
7:47 am
Jemper

Or germfree. *grin*
7:51 am
Atalante

yeah ... its definitely along those lines .... I was actually almost joking when I typed it in just cos I thought it sounded nice
7:52 am
eyezzz

I'm sure that'll come up a lot in conversation .... LOL!!!
7:52 am
Jemper

Does it include the letter J, or is my math off (again)?
7:54 am
Atalante

your maths is off again :P
7:54 am
Jemper

Nevermind! Yes, my math was off (at least I was looking at the wrong tile combo). Jeez, I should've got that right away considering the pets I own!
7:55 am
Atalante

he he - good word isn't it!
7:56 am
Kukana

So there's no 'j'?

I figured that for a 75-point 8, there must be 15 points in the word. So either it has the J for 8 points, plus 7 1-point letters, or else it has both Cs (3 pts each), one of the 4s (H or W), and five 1-point letters. I can't see any other way...
7:57 am
Jemper

Very nice! Looks like Bulldog found 3 7's, but I'm guessing this combo wasn't one of them since he only listed 1 8-lttr. So, I'm thinking at least 4 7's & 2 8's...
7:58 am
Jemper

You're on the right track, Kakuna (no J in the 75-ptr).
8:05 am
granadan

Ive got 3 x 7's. a 28, 36 and a 40.
8:06 am
Kukana

Oh... got it at last! How obvious now I see it... and what a nice word :-) Thanks :-)

I have two 8s now, and four 7s, two of which are closely related to the 8s.
8:10 am
Jemper

Yup! Gotta find the other 2 7's, thanks to granadan's stats (thanks!).
8:13 am
Atalante

I've got 4 7s and 2 8s ...
8:16 am
granadan

well, two are the same apart from one letter. thanks for tips - i got the 75!
8:20 am
Jemper

granadan ~ You're welcome! I have a good idea what letters are different between your two 7's...now I just gotta figure out the rest of the word.
8:22 am
Jemper

Now, WHY won't it take carseat?
8:35 am
Christine

I knew I shouldn't've started this bloomin' puzzle.... I have only 4-7s and the 'pretty 8' word... I came back because I saw the fish, on my printout, now I've been stuck here for 15 minutes.... grrrr I want to get back to my book... one bird, no animals and I'm feelin' a little stoopid, this mornin'.... just can't understand any of the clues - sigh -
8:37 am
Jemper

I was really frustrated with them at first, but stick with it! It helped me greatly to figure out which tiles were involved based on point totals....
8:44 am
Atalante

2 birds :P
8:59 am
eyezzz

car seat is two words.
9:11 am
lawyer-1

It's time for me to get serious for a moment. In an effort to make it easier for Senator Kearry to narrow the field of potential vice-presidential candidates, I am, as of today, officially withdrawing my name for consideration as his running mates. I know that my announcement will probably hurt his chances with the Babble crowd, but I must do what I must do.
9:12 am
Jemper

Lawyer ~ On behalf of all the other true believers, thank you for your bold sacrifice!
9:23 am
Jemper

I'm done for the night!

Banny - blooming marvellous! Im english, not resorted to dictionary yet, but not doing any better than you!
9:46 am
Christine

lawye - I agree it'll hurt his chances, but.... for my part, I find my knee surgery precludes my accepting a spot on the Lakers team.. resulting in this years loss. But, Dear One, we can do no more than our best, so I'm sticking with Babble.
9:46 am
banny

Thanks, I jump in here when I have breaks at work, but maybe Im spending a bit too much time here. just discovered this site last week, will be up on the ranking tomorrow =)
9:48 am

I'm all in favor of the Lakers having someone named Christine as a member!
10:08 am

Perhaps, since we've lost Phil Thingy, I could coach.... oops, spelled it COUCH....

Only got one words starting with j, the one for 48 with the j at the end is eluding me, but what is the third j word....any hints???
10:57 am

98 / 4.65 / 1209
11:06 am
lawyer-1

The word ending in "j" is not in the babble dictionary....another example of babble welfare. For a clue, try India. The 3rd 'j' .... think money.
11:11 am
frodo

anals is not the plural of anal?
Would it be asses?
11:12 am
Q

"anal" is an adjective.
11:16 am

Oh yeah!
I was thinking of anus which of course is not in this puzzle.
Thanks Q !

11:48 am

By typing 'hace' instead of 'have', I have given you the secret to my high scores. Many of my words are the results of typing mistakes. Go figure!

12:15 pm
Atalante

Woot! Got to 100 words!! But I still can't find the third J - the cash one?
12:22 pm
lawyer-1

Don't worry, Atalante, it's worth only 1.2 cents.
12:27 pm
sapphie

God...these j's are really bugging me...on 94, but can't see how I'll get to 100, never mind the heady heights ot lawyer-1 and baby...where the bloody hel are an extra 30 odd words hiding???? LOL

Finally...100/ 4.63/ 1190 ....still need the fifth 7 letter word and those blasted j words.... off work today so time to babble properly, but kinda wish it had been a bigger scoring grid!!

OK, I'm at 72 words, 4.46, 736. Not great but OK.. Its take me 37 minutes to get the last four. So I think I'm done. I've have only one 7 word. I have three 'E's, one 'I' 'J' 'L' 'O' words, and two 'RH' words. Good luck everyone!
8:03 pm

OK, I haven't found all the 7's yet...any more clues?

2-8s, 5-7s, 2 birds, a fish a furry thing, a nice smell and dinner - I'm going back to my book. Can't use the 'India' clue, or the 1.5ct clue... I'll check with you tomorrow for the answers.
G'nite all.

Bulldog....if you will check earlier messages, you will see that baby#3 has a higher score.
10:23 pm
bulldog

I know but I'm doing my best to ignore it!!
10:24 pm
lawyer-1

Then why ask for stats just to ignore them?
10:25 pm

I didn't mean those stats, silly. I meant the grid and the possible number of words formed from each square in the grid, those stats were very helpful.

Yeah maybe, but I've had more words than you in the past and you always get more points.

For that, bull, I shall not apologize. Now, if you will all excuse me, I will try to get some shuteye as visions of babble grids dance thru my mind.
