Man, can't believe I missed all those -ach words yesterday! Ah well.
19/338...got one 8 so far.
1 8 for 70. 31/684
Within the last two puzzles, both joseph and erica were words. For now on, if I see a name, I'm trying it.
g'night. turning in at 48/858.
anyone used the x?
I have two x words
I'm about done at 51/4.98/957
the x is used in at least one word.
any clues on the x?
one is a very very commonly used word, the other is an uncommon spelling of a commonish word. They are both 4 letters.
I found a 5 letter x word...very obscure.
clues on that one?
Going to bed with 56/5.02/1023.
me too, for real this time. 56/1098
37 words 4.70 568
67 / 1154 will look back later
68/5.01/1267 - 1 8 for 70 so far, heard of a second for 50, but haven't gotten it yet - sleep now
77 / 1330 cant see anymore
Do not like this puzzle.
Got the 8 for 50 and the 8 for 70 but little else.
Aaargh. 59 words, only 990 points so far, and Im getting stuck for ideas now!
what a stinker this one is!!
what is the point im still not moving in the ranking!!!
A seven for 56 and another 7 for 40
Christine do you have these big pointers?
There's actually at least two 7's for 56.
And at least 2 7's for 40
And a 7 for 52
if you find this grid painful, I have a 7 that will help.
I found a 7 for 56 but no other particularly high scorers. Got all 3 x words though.
And theyre almost identical...
I have to get back to work so it actually looks like I'm doing something. Bossman cometh. What is he doing here this early? I can't COPE with this! (6 words for almost 200 points).
81 / 1402 cant see the second 8
88, 5.09, 1667
Anyone got to 100 yet??
ok, I have the two 7/56, two 7/40, the 8/50, 3 x words.....at 59/5.02/1100, and I can't find the 8/70 or anything else!
Goat... you have three words that start with x?
That's 3 that contain x
There's a third 7 for 40.
found one for 52 when i tried for the 40.
i've only got one l word
that's a L
I've got one that starts with L and one that contains L.
53 words for 938 pts...2/7s; 1/8ltr - and it's taken almost an hour to get that miserable score - no X-words.
Upper Case Krista - what's the word for a lousy grid... surely not an e-gasm here!
It won't take nerd
thats because it doesnt fit
uh oh, Thanks stevedallas
only 52 words at 877. Can't find any more. Need to take a break.
62 and 1083
Almost reached Kukana's score, but I think it would take a 9-pointer for me to match it exactly. Must be more than 88 words. :D
Here's my starting letter distribution so far. Anyone who has more for any letter, please post to give direction to the search!
74/1337 im done

Hannah phoned me with instructions I have to be ther at 1.45pm I shall see you there.
Hey Mal - b4 you go - how cold is it there? I want to tell Patrick - he is not loving the Maryland summers!
Christine I would love to come live with you but I have to bring the crowd. I really am going to bed I am K....d bye
Kristsa tell Patrick it really is very cold here, we have had gale force winds, bad rain and he best stay where he is the lucky man.
Thanks - I shall tell him that! :) Good night, and stay warm over there.
While seeing 'pipette' and 'dopamine' -- grad studies revisited! -- I found a pain reliever. Hoping to get to 80 words.
Can you say 'addicted'? No . . .
I, like you mentioned earlier, cannot stop seeing engine. But you know I am desperate for words when Itry 'opie.' LOL! Hmm...she looks...nope - no opium there.
I've only got 40 so far - was gone all day - hate when life takes me away from Babble.
Mmm, gale force winds... it's 102 here today and I feel like my skin is melting off.
ooh - just came across the drug u mentioned - cool!
Krrista - what's the weathe in Maryland? 88-91 in the L.A. area.

It has been raining today, so it's very steamy - has been in the 90's this week - prob. 80's today. "It's not the heat, it's the humidity" around here!
Did Lewis Carroll play Babble?! I only have one g - up to 50 words. Woo hoo I'm hot now!
Krista - probably Dr. Seuss did -- think how often you get lucky with your 'made up' words... this is how he started, I betcha.
I've heard people blame it on drug use but I think Babble playing could do it too ;-D
Hi periwinkle I do not like this puzzle.
I only have 53 words?/954
True, both of you! Got another g word...
I've got you all beat in the temp. game. Its a toasty 114.50 F / 45.83 C, here in Valley of the Sun, Phoenix, AZ.
I'm at a puny 30, 4.57, 402. Although, I did get the 3 X words early on.
Whoa! Bet you would like some of our humidity, then!
Bring it on! :)
I have only one X word, but I must go, now.... tomorrow, please tell me the other X words??
Same here, Christine - only have one! Bye for now.
Whoo-hooo! My 80th word is an 8. Divine signal that I should quit! ;-D
Bah, I keep seeing 'nettle' and 'expired'.

Winner, I am up to 72, 1192. Can't find anymore.
Four more points and I'll have 1500... but I can't do it!
i had no idea my last couple words existed.
I've got two 7's and an 8. I'm at 58, 4.84, 992. I have found very few in the last few hours. This one's a toughie, but I've learned some new words.
101 / 1803 at the moment, last hour has just been adding prefixes/suffixes onto stuff I already had really.
