wow- this must be a big one. I don't think I've ever gotten this many 7s right off the bat
really! it has all the vowels...
I'm already up to 940 points. That astonishing for me!
ooh- you found an 8. I'm jealous!
ok- I just tried something and ended up with an s8/50 too. wonder if it's the same one?
Mine is plural for an S7/36
hmm.. I didn't realize mine was a plural for another word, but it is.
not sure what it means, though. The only dictionary definition I could find said it was a Scottish word meaning, "stilthy". Whatever that is.
S7/36 a plural
Ok I just got my 100th word. That means it's time for bed! : ) That and the fact that it's 2o til 3 here and I still have to finish up some cooking in the morning.
S8 / 60

Thank you so much Krys! Having the stats does make playing so much more fun.
i think so too! I have a long car ride ahead of me, will be playing on paper.. happy Thanksgiving to all who are celebrating today!
Wow, more than 100 words in no time at all! Fun grid, this one.
Glad to see one of my favourite singers is allowed!
Hey sprite, my friend. I like that B7 word :)
When I don't feel well, it's nice to drink hot t7 36's while holding t7 36's :)
Here's my 7s for people to add to :)
A7/32 made harmonious
A7/28 makes harmonious
I7/36 to imagine
S7/36 Indian tribe (pl)
S7/32 pursues knowledge

Are there 2 D7's?
ohhh thats what that S word means!!
I've got 2 of the 8s
Atalante, I used testing's tip of yesterday (or the day before) and looked the word up in infoplease.com. :-D
Got the same 8's as you do. We'll hunt for the 3rd one...
Anyone want to compare As and Es?
I'm missing three As:
As4, As5, As6
and missing two Es:
*goes searching for the last 8*
As : AT4, AE6, AS5
there's an EI4
Can't believe 'bedside' isn't there!
Not to mention 'seicento"!
For a T7/36 I have a dictionary entry being:
a. The sweet sap of several tropical Asain palm trees...used as a beverage
b. A liquor fermented from this sap.
Is that the one mentioned earlier with all the vowels? It is driving me nuts!
Thanks Atalante! Also found the last E - an En6.
That sap one has already been talked about on a cold night
Oh, I see, thanks Atalante. Any clues on that all-vowel-T7 perhaps?
oops! i'm sorry--I'm not too thorough going through the messages...: )
noooo idea unfortunately ><
Too bad... ;-)
'Benedict' - just not there either. FRUStrating!
or 'subtotal' *lol* Aaarrrrgghh!
Keep seeing words that aren't in the grid!
Ah, the 3rd 8 is a D60. No wonder I found it with my committed searching.
D7/32: darkest, gloomiest.
ok, my babble screen just expanded and now i can't see the words i entered... help
Guess I am there: 231 words / 4.82 / 3108 points.
But I still have no T7 using all the vowels. Probably I misunderstood the following entry and sent myself on a useless quest...

Yeah, I know. Compliments of one Matthew. You have to scroll right to see your list... messaged Babble already.
thanx, i thought that it was something lame that i did to my computer. back to questing!!
Really loved this grid! So many fun words.
i'll never have time to finish this, never ....
not like i finish many of them anyway, some times i get close, finished a couple ....
Ah well, finishing is nice, but every word you find is fun, right? If you can finish the S today, you have as much words as are in some grids in total! *lol*
i like searching for words finding ones i didn't know, it's the searching for them that is fun, my favorite so far has been irenic, and the alternate spelling .
That's exactly what I like so much about this game. My favorite is 'sonsie' and alternate spelling. Where else would you come across such a word?
sounds french, in a crossword puzzle : )
You're right, of course... but I like babble better! Time for me to go to sleep. Have fun hunting!
arghh! he's everywhere . . . !!! (bush)
Is anyone else haveing a problem with the size of the page? I came home and suddenly it's huge and I have to scroll way over
Sorry for the earlier chat log problem that caused the width of the page to get a little out of control. I've deleted the offending messages, and everything should be back to normal.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope the tryptophan isn't hindering your Babbling capabilities! :)
The message at 1:10 about the word having all the vowels.... I think it was meant that the PUZZLE had all the vowels- in response to a statement I had made the message before (about the puzzle being big).
*lol* Yes, I realised that later... after my interesting and absolutely useless goosechase! Sometimes I am just too stupid to be blonde... ;-)
sorry about that- if I'd gotten on earlier I would have told you- but today was Thanksgiving and I had two huge family dinners to go to. I was gone all day!
