I knew you had to be here.

I am on call the next 2 days/night. Boo. Hiss.
6:09 am
ItalianGreyhound

I am predictable - hope all stays quiet for you
6:10 am
Scrabbler

It won't. Omicron is thriving and people are sharing it well.
6:11 am
ItalianGreyhound

Yeeesh - then folks will be glad you are there
6:12 am
Scrabbler

No. Parents aren't worried that their kids have COVID. "It's just a cold. I know it's not COVID." And then the test is positive.
6:20 am
Scrabbler

I need to go. Enjoy your day, IG.
6:21 am

7:54 am
Uneaixoise

Congrats!
7:55 am
MollyL

Yes Bea, I worked Tuesday, yesterday and will a half-day today. If you can call it work. This is the deadest week in business.
7:56 am
BzznBea

Do you have big NYE plans?
8:19 am
MollyL

No, we usually have a pretty quiet New Year's Eve. A little hooping and hollering at midnight, that's all.
8:20 am
bichon

My grandkids stay up to midnight, we're asleep by 10 pm
8:21 am
MollyL

I take a nap and then get up around 11 to see in the New Year with my son.
8:22 am
BzznBea

I'm asleep by ten as well. Wake up to the gunfire.

Several botanicals today.

I only have one pair so far!
8:40 am

Oh man, you two and your out there plant words. Can't wait.
8:42 am

the one I have is definitely not out there :)
8:50 am
hokie carla

I have a generic one
8:51 am
BzznBea

I found another relating to my favorite plant.
8:52 am
BzznBea

Well, one of my favorite plants. There are so many.
8:52 am
hokie carla

lol
8:53 am
hokie carla

bea, I don't know if you do reddit, but I subscribe to a plant identification subreddit. those people can id something someone's posted in like 5 min or less with the scientific name. it's amazing to me.
8:59 am
BzznBea

I'll have to look into it? I am on a FB group where they identify insects. That's pretty cool.
9:00 am
hokie carla

yeah, I also follow a snake one. joined the snake one and the plant one to get things ID'd.
9:07 am
BzznBea

Carla, do you do tiktok?
9:13 am
hokie carla

no
9:13 am
hokie carla

though a lot of tiktoks creep over to instagram and reddit
9:16 am

Spoiler alert - clue blurt coming.

hi7 in my day was low slung jeans now a fashionable young man usually with a bushy beard and tight pants :)
9:22 am
hurshy

i hate big bushy beards. neat and trim is the way.
9:23 am
hokie carla

ha, thanks
9:23 am
hokie carla

I also hate big bushy beards
9:23 am
hurshy

it didn't all go down so i had to refl5 the toilet - should be a word
9:24 am
hokie carla

that makes more sense than the re5 I found
9:24 am
ursh

so odd nice looking men with ugly beards and nowadays if their hair is thinning the shave it off altogether - weird
9:27 am
rururocks

i recently tried a beard but i couldn't manage it.. so i now have a goatee
9:27 am
hokie carla

oh, ursh - you get the tiara today
9:28 am
hokie carla

I really don't mind a nice, neatly trimmed beard. but the bushy ones, nope.
9:28 am

9:33 am

9:34 am
hokie carla

9:35 am

โœ…โœ…โœ…
9:39 am
hokie carla

was thinking hurshy might get it. maybe molly is a bot - she always has the answers.
9:39 am
MollyL

We don't all know French terminology. Flipper was for the non-Francophones
9:40 am
MollyL

Molly has done a lot of work on the internet, so is familiar with relatively popular sites
9:40 am
hokie carla

๐Ÿ˜
9:41 am
hurshy

now that i see the answer i think i may have heard of that site long ago but i definitely would not have known it
9:41 am
hokie carla

I don't know any french terminology but I also don't know which word you're talking about because I didn't read the chat.
9:42 am
hurshy

the da7 :) if you've seen movies like man in the iron mask or anything that has french royalty you could know it
9:42 am
hokie carla

well hurshy I was going to do an easy HP one but it's an actual word
9:42 am
MollyL

Here we go, airlines are starting to cancel flights due to the COVID surge
9:43 am
hokie carla

they started that a few days ago
9:43 am
MollyL

Pardon me for not being current on the news
9:43 am
hokie carla

of course ๐Ÿ˜œ
9:44 am
cybernan

anyone want to tell me where I can find 3 more h's?
9:44 am
hurshy

right R, i have ra4/6, anyone know what the other one is?
9:44 am
hokie carla

I still need 3 as well
9:44 am
MollyL

There is a Used H Lot just up the street
9:44 am
hokie carla

nope to the other R
9:45 am
hurshy

argh, i have to go, if someone clues it and i don't say thanks, i'm sorry
9:46 am
Vicuna

t's ra6/24 - a snail's foot
9:46 am
hokie carla

there's a word for that?
9:46 am
cybernan

snails have feet?
9:47 am
Vicuna

Or tongue, if you prefer. What they scrape along with.
9:47 am
cybernan

monkeyed it - ty vic
9:49 am
MollyL

Wow, that is an obscure word if I ever saw one
9:49 am
hokie carla

not me, but I'll keep trying. first pass finished. 55 left. only 1 U found so no HOET.
9:50 am
MollyL

Looks like it is part of the mouth though
9:51 am

If you want to freak someone out, play a word like ra6 in a Scrabble game and then casually say "yeah, it's part of a snail's mouth". They will look at you in a funny way and start backing out of the room.

12:32 pm

12:33 pm

Poetic form of upset... to overturn
12:33 pm
m9f9l

And it's in the song Jingle Bells
12:38 pm
hurshy

yeah that's the only place i've ever heard it
12:38 pm
hurshy

i think the point was it wasn't a word, because when they say "misfortune seemed his lot, he got into a drifted bank and then he got upsot", then there's another voice in the background that goes, "upsot??"
12:40 pm
hokie carla

I don't recall ever hearing that in jingle bells
12:40 pm
m9f9l

I thought that, so I looked into it and it was in usage at the time.
12:40 pm
m9f9l

"But, though we will only encounter it in modern usage in direct reference to โ€œJingle Bells,โ€ upsot can be found in a variety of usages that donโ€™t all refer to James Pierpontโ€™s 1850 composition and 1857 publication of the song. (Pierpont was 28 when he wrote it.) Bob has again saved me the research time; he has sent 15 different citations (not bad for a word thatโ€™s not in the OED), found with the aid of Bartleby.com and Project Gutenberg."

i had a coworker who had it.. she had young children at home and was so afraid there would be an emergency since she could not drive. and people kept telling her it was all in her head
1:36 pm
hokie carla

I can drive since I know which direction to avoid turning my head to trigger it
1:36 pm
72 Temple Owl

ooh, ga6/42!
1:45 pm

thanks TO!
2:01 pm
MollyL

Wait, how can you avoid turning your head in a certain direction when you drive. Most times, when you are driving you have to turn your head both ways to see oncoming traffic from either direction.
3:14 pm
nrkii

hokie, is it positional vertigo?
3:15 pm
REG

hokie carla have you ever been diagnosed with BPPV? If not, Google it. I've had a couple of bouts of it which were resolved with the Epley Maneuver.
3:15 pm
nrkii

I had it two years ago -- very very fixable.
3:15 pm
nrkii

Epley maneuver - there are YouTube videos on how to determine if that is what it is, and how to resolve. Though best not to do alone.
3:16 pm
REG

Definitely try not to do alone. Last time it affected me for hours afterward but then I was fine!
3:17 pm
nrkii

Epley maneuver worked right away for me, but it was an uncomfortable 5 minutes doing the maneuver. :)
3:18 pm
nrkii

I caused myself bigger issues by waiting to deal with it, and had secondary vertigo caused by neck tightness. Had to go for a few weeks of PT to resolve that. The BPPV was fixed right away.
3:20 pm
REG

It really feels like a miracle afterwards. My GP said she saw a patient run up and hug their ENT doctor at a party and thank them profusely for her cure!
3:21 pm
Soodle

Great to see input from nrkii & REG. I thought the Chog Police had branched out into the Traffic Police. Itโ€™s lovely to see positive helpful posts. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
3:28 pm

nrkii and hokie carla Here's a really interesting article about Dr. Epley: https://tinyurl.com/2p88dbvx
3:46 pm
hokie carla

sorry, took the dog for a walk. yes, it is BPPV. I had it last Feb and a PT fixed it right away with the Epley, but I can't get in with her until 1/7. mostly a problem looking down or up high and I can't lie (lay?) on my back unless my head is turned to the left. can't lay (lie?) on my right side at all.
3:47 pm
hokie carla

can't bend over, have to squat down and keep head straight.
3:47 pm
hokie carla

have tried epley at home Mon and yesterday but apparently I need a professional.
3:52 pm
nrkii

Oh no! Well, in case it helps, here's a great link for it: https://youtu.be/xTnV3m4bWDg

Just watching that, I realized that I would not have done it quite right if I had tried to do from memory.
3:53 pm
hurshy

aHA i finally found the easy HP noun you were talking about hokie. while you were away i did Dursley.
3:54 pm
hokie carla

I saw my GP on mon for a different follow-up and told him about it. he gave me some printouts on epley and cawthorne exercises. plus I looked got some instructions on mayo for home epley. it definitely triggered hard on Mon when I did it but didn't go away so I guess I messed it up.
3:54 pm
hokie carla

ha! I did not see dursley
3:55 pm
nrkii

I know with my sister-in-law it took her several tries. Good luck!
3:56 pm
hokie carla

thanks
3:56 pm
nrkii

By the 7th, it may go away on its own. The crystals eventually absorb.
3:56 pm
hokie carla

yeah, I've heard that from people in the know
3:56 pm
nrkii

I had to go back to PT this week for my neck. Now that I've heard about your situation, I'm so grateful I got in fast.
3:57 pm

Some people pay money to feel like that, Carla haha. I hope you can get it sorted soon though sounds horrible.
3:57 pm
nrkii

urst
3:57 pm
nrkii

oops
3:58 pm
hokie carla

actually, back in Feb it did go away. I saw an ENT and a PT on the same day and neither one of them got it to trigger because it had basically gotten better, but then I made appts with the PT for my neck and it happened to come back on a day I had an appt with her so she was able to fix it.
3:58 pm

Damn I tried it too, Nrkii haha!

maybe dogs don't say arf in england?

It makes me think of the girl Eddie Murphy is supposed to marry in Coming to America when he tells her to bark like a dog while hopping on one foot.
4:27 pm
hokie carla

I think she says "arf. arf. arf" but maybe she does woof. now I've gotta rewatch.
4:28 pm
zoozzoom

Is it a comedy? Never heard of it. Although I do not watch hardly any TV at all. So would never watch it anyway.
4:29 pm
hokie carla

oh yeah, she does arf and then he says a big dog and she switches to woof
4:29 pm
hokie carla

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejsW9r\n1tUK8
4:30 pm
hokie carla

yes a comedy from the 80s
4:30 pm

a classic. Eddie Murphy is an African prince who comes to America to find a wife, and James Earl Jones is his father, the king.
4:32 pm
