8:23 am
mael

it's a good word
8:23 am
Shirlockc

8:24 am
MollyL

They have a pleasant mix of antiques, re5 furniture and contemporary art.
8:25 am
mael

8:25 am
mael

masshole (affectionate) that is
8:25 am
MollyL

There are some words I associate with my parent's generation. Nifty and swell are two of them.
8:28 am

I've lived here long enough that I've taken on the lingo, if not the accent

8:32 am
mael

bubbler, packie, wicked, jimmies, cellar
8:33 am
MollyL

We have an ice cream place nearby called Jimmy Cone
8:33 am
mael

it was definitely a class thing, the accent anyway. but the lingo is pervasive even if you don't say cah and hahvahd

MollyL

Used to. I think COVID closed them down.
8:34 am
phaeton

hello...clue for the ro7 pls
8:34 am
marksdolly

I lived in Mass for 13 yrs, they have a lingo of their own, when there they said I had an Iowa accent, here they tell me I have a Bostonian accent
8:34 am
rururocks

I hired a cab driver to drive me around Boston once just to hear him point out the sites in his accents. I loved it
8:36 am
mael

i've ended up with a very neutral accent, the mass accented balanced out the british accent I started with
8:36 am
MollyL

ro + note after lah + first three of a boat that transports cars
8:36 am
mael

like I said, molly gives great clues :)
8:37 am
MollyL

Someone clued it early as tiny crustaceans and I was like "say what"?
8:37 am
mael

I was gonna say that it ended like a source of drinking water
8:37 am
phaeton

ty Molly
8:37 am
rururocks

MollyL

Some dream of being the next Jacques Cousteau?

Alinea in Chicago is HIGH on my list
8:47 am
BzznBea

I'd love to go back to SanFran just to eat.
8:48 am
rururocks

come on out bea
8:48 am
rururocks

great places to eat
8:51 am
MollyL

I just looked at Alinea's website. I would simply not know what to do with the food pictured there. Eat it? Appreciate it's art form? Take a picture of it?
8:51 am
mael

all of the above, molly!
8:52 am
rururocks

I know it's amazing
8:52 am
mael

I've always wanted to go to Alinea
8:52 am
rururocks

I think he's one of the greatest chefs in the country
8:52 am
MollyL

I have pedestrian taste in food.
8:52 am
rururocks

no you don't..
8:53 am
mael

I've only really explored awesome restaurants on the east coast, I need to make it over to the west coast for food
8:53 am
mael

and also the middle, obv
8:54 am
rururocks

the food scene is really exciting out here
8:55 am
mael

how do you like sushi, Ru? My favorite restaurant in the world is actually in Boston, O Ya
8:55 am
rururocks

i'm not a raw food guy.. unfortunately
8:55 am
rururocks

sushi isn't for me
8:56 am
mael

it's not for everybody :)
8:56 am
MollyL

I guess steak tartar is out too 😊
8:57 am
mael

another of the most delicious things
8:57 am
rururocks

yep that's out too
8:57 am
rururocks

and oysters
8:57 am
mael

I guess I qualify as a raw food gal then
8:57 am
MollyL

You guys go to some high-stakes restaurants. They look like they charge a cover fee just to get in.
8:57 am
mael

my 8 year old daughter could eat her weight in oysters, it's actually a little alarming
8:58 am
mael

fancy restaurants are my only vice, molly
8:58 am
mael

(no, I probably have more vices, but they're definitely my only expensive vice)
8:58 am
MollyL

She is 8 already? Damn, I remember when you were pregnant with her.
8:59 am
mael

yup, going on 9
8:59 am
mael

time flies
8:59 am
mael

she's a giant nerd like me, it's excellent
9:00 am
MollyL

Enjoy her while you can. Once the hormones hit, life with kids becomes very different.
9:00 am
mael

oh I bet
9:00 am
mael

I hope it rolls back around after
9:00 am
rururocks

if only restaurants were my only vice :D
9:06 am
mael

I also have word puzzles as a vice
9:07 am
rururocks

(bourbon, scotch, gin, fine wine, good books, fast cars, restaurants, museums, etc)
9:09 am
mael

all good things
9:09 am
rururocks

yeah that's what I think too
9:09 am
mael

except the cars, I'm more of a "four wheels and a steering wheel" kind of person
9:09 am
rururocks

I love my sports car
9:10 am
mael

though I shouldn't say that, I love my car right now
9:10 am
mael

I'm never not having an electric car

20 Ks is a lot of Ks
9:11 am
rururocks

I"m missing three
9:12 am
mael

I was just throwing letters in there by the end
9:12 am
rururocks

usually k's are just four letter words
9:13 am
mael

most of them, with some 5s thrown in, and a couple plurals on top of that
9:19 am
MollyL

Damn, I didn't hear that Jeff Beck died.

9:40 am

I thought the F's harder than the Ks.
9:41 am
hokie carla

5-6-8-8-1. too many big ones.
9:41 am
hokie carla

the F's have been tricky. I need 4 + 2, and still need 5 K's.

11:02 am

missing one a from that top row -- dont think it is a 4 unless it is awfully weird
11:03 am
penquis

don't have any of those yet...
11:07 am
penquis

i have all those As.....did you find the 6?...
11:07 am
cybernan

every golfer here would argue that retee is a word
11:07 am
cybernan

yes
11:07 am
penquis

they are all real words....
11:07 am
cybernan

a 4 and 2 5's as well
11:08 am
cybernan

11:08 am
penquis

another 5...
11:09 am
cybernan

ar or at?
11:09 am
penquis

no At words....
11:14 am
cybernan

tried every possible ar 5 from there -- guess it is an ao
11:14 am
cybernan

or an ae
11:15 am
penquis

no AOs....i have all the As from that A....no AE words....
11:15 am
penquis

do you want a clue?....
11:16 am
cybernan

please - i must be skipping the same letter combo over and over
11:16 am
penquis

there are four AR words that start with the same four letters....
11:18 am
cybernan

ty -- missed the one that ends in a vowel
11:18 am
cybernan

whew!
11:18 am
penquis

yw...
11:20 am
cybernan

there was an ro 7/8 called last night but i haven't found it either -- apparently begins like an indian bread

hurshy

i have ro8 and st8, anyone got the other one?
11:54 am
penquis

those are the two that i have...
11:55 am
hurshy

i only knew those ro words because once i saw a title of a science talk happening at Yale called "Sex and Death in Bdelloid Ro8" and it was just so weird that it stuck in my mind
11:56 am
penquis

interesting....i had never heard of it....
11:57 am
hokie carla

another st8
11:57 am
hurshy

i suppose i would clue it as being similar in format to another word for evergreen trees
11:57 am
hokie carla

same word, different vowel
11:57 am
hokie carla

I do not have the RO
11:57 am
hurshy

oh, well that's an anticlimax, isn't it? thanks hokie
11:58 am
hurshy

but, Ss Slayed!
11:58 am
hurshy

well i just gave a clue there hokie...
11:58 am
penquis

carla!....ty....
11:58 am
hokie carla

I can't think of another word for evergreen trees
11:58 am
hokie carla

pen!
11:59 am
hurshy

think about the way they seed - pine c___
11:59 am
hokie carla

ah, added with the clues I saw last night, I got them, thx
11:59 am
hurshy

huzzah!
12:00 pm
hokie carla

it was "starts with indian bread" and I tried everything for the last 3 letters, but TBF I was on my phone, in bed, and it was super late.
12:00 pm
hokie carla

5-6-8-7
12:00 pm
hokie carla

still too heavy on the big end
12:00 pm
hurshy

if you just google "bdelloid" then it kinda comes up with the ro word with it anyway :D
12:01 pm
hokie carla

honestly I thought bdelloid must've been a typo
12:01 pm
hurshy

science has some wacky words
12:02 pm
hurshy

frue
12:02 pm
hurshy

scuse me
12:02 pm
hurshy

doesn't work anyway
12:03 pm

12:03 pm
MollyL

This conversation is getting into advanced word nerd territory
12:03 pm
hokie carla

anyone else keep seeing cloak? I don't even need a C.
12:06 pm
cybernan

the c is in the corner, but no cloak
12:07 pm
hurshy

she meant, she doesn't need to find any more C words, but she keeps wanting to try cloak anyway
12:07 pm
hokie carla

I was very confused by nan's statement
12:07 pm
cybernan

don't know how anyone would know that ro combo
12:07 pm
hurshy

nan took it as "i keep seeing cloak even without a C"
12:08 pm
hurshy

well, as i mentioned a few minutes ago, i just happened to see it in the title of a talk and it stuck in my head
12:08 pm
cybernan

sorry - thought you said I don't even see a c
12:08 pm
cybernan

haven't really wakened up yet
12:09 pm
hurshy

yesterday on the freebee website i managed to dig "zemstvo" out of my high school history memories to get that as a pangram for that bee! i was so proud of myself for that one
12:09 pm
cybernan

haven't really wakened up yet - maybe some breakfast would help!
12:09 pm
penquis

excellent....
12:09 pm
penquis

that site must use a different word list... ;o)
12:10 pm
hurshy

yeah they use like... idk... allll the words lol
12:10 pm
hurshy

it's sort of annoying because then you don't know if you're just not seeing the pangram, or if you're not seeing it because it's a word you don't even know in the first place
12:11 pm
penquis

so a bigger dictionary has its drawbacks, too, i guess....
12:13 pm
hokie carla

pretty sure I've never seen zemstvo in my life
12:13 pm
penquis

same here...
12:14 pm
hokie carla

what kind of history is that?
12:14 pm
cybernan

I play the bee at spellbee.org and spellingbeegame.org Where do you play hurshy?
12:16 pm

12:18 pm
BzznBea

I got wordle in two today. Had all five letters at one.
12:18 pm
hurshy

i have to protest. i admit to being a word nerd, but the science words are nothing to do with us word nerds, they are the science nerds' fault
12:19 pm
hokie carla

I got it in 3 but was just one letter off in 2nd guess
12:19 pm

I didn't realize that georgia okeeffe was spelled with two Fs
12:22 pm
MollyL

Who mentioned the word bdelloid?
12:22 pm
hokie carla

I don't really get her argument, just noted it. just because science nerds came up with science words doesn't mean her remembering them isn't word nerdy.
12:23 pm

4:21 pm
dcseain

oh, from Yiddish, it's basically "what's that" sometimes a bit snarky, though not in this case, merely inquisitive

Ashkenazi here. My family usually used it in place of "come on already!" LOL
5:28 pm
hokie carla

what is the exact pronunciation?
5:28 pm
hokie carla

we would say something like nyoo for an exaggerated no
5:29 pm
SeaSpray

Ouner
5:30 pm
hokie carla

that is more of a snarky one
5:40 pm
Lizlin

Good morning all :)
5:42 pm
hokie carla

hey lizlin
5:43 pm
Lizlin

HI Carla - were you asking about the pronunciation of NU? Exactly as it looks but with whatever intonation fits the occasion. Often a question - as in So what or as Zadit said.
5:44 pm
Lizlin

To rhyme with the beginning of noon - noo
5:45 pm
hokie carla

yeah, was wondering if it was noo or nyoo
5:45 pm
Lizlin

Definitely no y in it!
5:46 pm
Lizlin

it's one of those useful little words which don't really mean anything or can mean whatever.
5:46 pm
Lizlin

My grandparents used to use it.
5:46 pm
hokie carla

how's the weather down there?
5:47 pm
Lizlin

Really good here. It's been the best summer we've had in ages - so far! Still, it's storm season, so I'm sure that'll happen some time before summer ends.
5:48 pm
Shirlockc

5:48 pm
Lizlin

Not the same everywhere in Aus though. There's been flooding in the NW and I've heard of bush fires too.

5:50 pm

I heard there's flooding in California :(
5:51 pm
Shirlockc

finally NBT
5:51 pm
Lizlin

And of course, we heard all about that really big freeze
5:51 pm
hokie carla

yeah, I think that's what happens when you finally get rain after no rain forever
5:52 pm
Shirlockc

keef
5:52 pm
Lizlin

Agree
5:52 pm
Shirlockc
