Hugabugs

You might find a few of those s9's in Shakespeare's plays
1:50 am

Blaze

WOW I wonder if that would work better when trying to get the kids to wash the dishes ??
1:56 am
Hugabugs

I have a w6/39, but can't find a w6/30. Any hints?
1:58 am
linda

it didn't work, I'm still getting double entries. I even closed and went off line and then came back on, but the double entries were still listed
1:58 am
Hazzardous

Becky it's a long time since I was 14 (no mobiles then either). It's great you are trying but one thing you should keep in mind is to talk the language of the rest of the "community" -then you'll be taken more seriously

I am not thick i have just said that but i really didn't know what it mean i coulf of worked it out but i thought it would be easier just to ask and it has actually really hurt me that u are calling me things like an imbecile and telling evryone to ignore me when non of you know me because im sure if you did you woiuldnt think of me in sure a terrible way

we are not ignoring you Becky, we are here to play a game. If you need to go and cry on your bed then that is what you have to do. You offended people but are not happy when they offend you. Its a cruel world

we all have problems with the puzzle, if it wasn't challenging there would be no point in playing. If you are struggling then ask for help but be specific eg need help on ei7/40 (which for the record I could do with help on) just saying I need help doesn't help us to help you because where do we begin as we have no idea what words you currently have. Confused you will be :o)

Yes, the scope of destruction is almost more than the mind can take in - that's why it helps me to have a comparison for it! Wasn't ever to good at solid geometry!!!

I always thought we'd see mass destruction in California from an earthquake --- but this seems even worse than I would have imagined from that. Now it's time to move forward - and pray for mercy!!

MadXSer

Becky, I take offence at your language. There is absolutely no need for swearing or abusive comments in this game . I realise that you are only 14 but immaturity is no excuse for your behaviour today. You were on earlier and being nasty to people and seem to be determined to carry on in the same vein tonight. People come here to play a word game and enjoy themselves, maybe even to escape from "real life" for half an hour........or 4 hours. I personally do not want to listen to the rantings of an abusive 14 year old who thinks that the who world is out to get her or be nasty to her. Play nicely or go away. Feel free to be abusive towards me if you must because I refuse to take any of your rantings personally.
12:18 pm

Aah, brandyjack, another shattered illusion. I pictured you logging on, cracking your knuckles and finding all the words in about an hour and a half!
12:54 pm

Well, my stat generator does use the complete list of words so technically your are correct. I'm just too stubborn to look at the list. Not going to let a silly program outsmart me. Especially one that I wrote..
12:56 pm
lola100

Good for you brandyjack! I would have to peek after a few hours though-lol! Do you give the list to someone else 'til you've finished?
12:56 pm
brandyjack

Besides, my eyesight is so bad I've only just now figured out what your buddy icon is. All I could see was golden flames before.... You would think that after looking at a grid full of upside down, backwards and sidways words that I'd be able to distinguish waht it was.....

12:59 pm
brandyjack

as for the list, no it's on my hard drive. I can see the filename, I just don't open it. no point. It's the chase that counts. I no longer dedicate the hours necessary to finish the big puzzles, but some of the smaller ones I do. I do however have the complete 2nd letter list open and visible which makes solving them that much easier. Allows the infinite monkeys methodology a chance of success. Although my dyslexic fingers cuase more grief...

Could anyone tell me why this puzzle won`t take gilet!!!!!!!
2:31 pm
lola100

Because it's spelt with 2 L's. Howzit!
2:31 pm
roncook

it wont take ciel either
2:32 pm
dazza

It`s spelt with one l,in the dictionary.
2:32 pm
brandyjack

spell it right. Ceil
'i' before 'e' except after 'c' unless it's an 'a'
2:33 pm
lola100

Aah. No idea then!
2:33 pm
Anj

ron, put a Y on the end of it :)
2:34 pm
roncook

not according to scrabble australian no 4
2:35 pm
brandyjack

as for gilet (another name for a jacket), it looks to be a recent import from either italian or french. Hasn't been used long enough to be accepted in the english directory.
2:35 pm
Linda0

i've had my gilet for a couple of years!
2:35 pm
brandyjack

this game uses the Enable dictionary which might be different from all the scrabble dictionaries.
2:36 pm
lola100

And all this time I've been wearing a gillet! My spelling is so bad I'm surprised I ever find any words - lol!
2:37 pm
Anj

...unless of course you also have wi5/18 associated with a certain coyote & Acme...which uses the same letters but won't like the Y, no siree...

The wi5/18 root sounds like free-w..... as on trundle along in neutral :)
2:37 pm
roncook

any excuse to corrupt the real English language
2:41 pm
Dr_God

Just to let everyone know - I took care of a little problem a few of you had with a certain someone this morning, and there should hopefully be no more problems in the future regarding that certain someone. ;)
2:41 pm
brandyjack

and which one do you consider the 'real' english language? Chaucerian, Shakespearean, Victorian, British, Canadian, American or Australian? Want an exercise in bafflement? Try reading a 400 year old cookbook. I'm glad those people knew how to cook, because they were useless at writing.
2:44 pm
Hugabugs

brandyjack - Thanks for that list. I finally finished.

Brandyjack - isn't it gillet??
2:47 pm
Anj

400 year old cookbook? Sounds like 'The Joye of Snackes' if I remember my Pratchett :)

Certain someone?? Has the redoubtable Becky been at the message log again??
2:49 pm
lola100

Anj- she got even worse.... if that's possible. Was really quite offensive. Yeuch :(
2:50 pm
tbear

I bear growled at her....
2:50 pm
brandyjack

Chris, not that i've seen. I googled it and it came up that way. Had to look a bit to find one that wasn't capitalised which would have invalidated it. Something like Tillie's and Kleenex which are a trademark and always capitalised. Could be a similar situation here.
2:54 pm
Moozey

lets hope she doesn't come back under another name or even worse she brings her friends

Help! Stuck for one word only, an NE6, have the birthmark one. Can't see the other for looking, a clue would be much appreciated.
3:06 pm

<yawn> Snoozy Doogle awoke at 3:00 this afternoon and therefore missed this morning's excitement in the chat log. What happened??
3:06 pm

Yeah thats true! Although it`s my mothers fault i`m an addict:)
3:07 pm

Hi zade, long time no see! The other ne6 is your famous sea captain (no, not brandyjack!) :)
3:09 pm
Zade

many thanks Brandyjack and Lola100, i must be blind!!
3:09 pm
Moozey

Atalanta - the T word you mentioned is an acceptable word.

Doogle you missed someone throwing their toys out of their pram, literally
3:11 pm
lola100

Doogle- check out the logs at around 11:45 (I think) if you want to see what all the nonsense was about :)
3:12 pm
Anj

Battle Royale this afternoon I see :)
At least the rest of us in this little corner of cyberspace get along like one happy family...
So who's turn is it to do the washing up?? lol :D
3:13 pm
brandyjack

no washing up in this game, just washing out....
3:14 pm
Doogle

Yes, I've just finished checking out that scintilating repartee. Glad I missed it!
3:14 pm

get fish and chips...no washing up...MMMM
3:15 pm
Anj

Hey Bear, i'm going to see Steve Forbert at the Folk House next Sunday.
3:15 pm
lola100

Good idea tbear, but none of those yukky mushy peas for me, thanks!
3:16 pm
brandyjack

hmmm, fish and chips. didn't know there was a non-greasy kind.... In which case, what's the point?
3:17 pm
tbear

Brandyjack...you eat them wrapped in paper straight from the chippy
3:17 pm
Anj

Fish & Chips always taste better when wrapped in newspaper. I think that's some archaic bylaw in this country :)
3:17 pm
tbear

no mushy peas...just mayo for the chips
3:18 pm
lola100

Oh no! Just salt and vinegar on mine please :)
3:19 pm
tbear

What kinda musak Anj..might join you
3:19 pm
Anj

What about chippe sauce??? Or is that just a scottish thing? OK then, gravy at least :)
3:19 pm
CATHB

the crispy bits are the best
3:19 pm
brandyjack

i don't think vegetable ink counts as your daily servings of vegetables. We do have a restaurant here in town called Britannia that deos make the most dwonderful fish and chips, and yes, they do wrap them in newspapers. Have to spend the extra for the haddock though as it is simple irresistible....
3:21 pm
tbear

Brandyjack plaice is the best
3:22 pm
brandyjack

my wife and kids like the mayo on the chips too. I prefer gravy and/or ketchup. And sea salt with malt vinegar... Think that's the end of the pork roast for tonight. Britannia here I come.....
3:22 pm
lola100

I love the english cod, but that's because we don't get much of it in SA :)
3:24 pm
tbear

I've already had mine...but after talking about it could easily start all over again. Enjoy it Brandyjack
3:24 pm
Anj

Noooo, dabs are the best flat fish - more flavour. Haddock is nice but I prefer Pollack when I can find some :)
3:25 pm
Zade

Just read all the shenanigans from the earlier chat log. It does make one wonder about some people!
3:25 pm
lola100

Do you get kingklip out here?
3:26 pm
Anj

Bear, Steve Forbert is a singer-songwriter in the Dylan or Richard Thompson mould. I'm not that well acquainted, but an old friend of mine is and reckons it's worth a visit. Tickets are 15.50
3:26 pm
lola100

Yay Zade, you got a little blue handbag (am I the only one who thinks that's what they look like?). Awful, wasn't it?
3:27 pm
tbear

lola..I take it that's a fish....No we don't that I know of
3:28 pm
brandyjack

I thought they looked like the legoland boys and girls. Guess handbags just aren't my style.... Besides, the one my wife totes would crack the back of an ogre....
3:29 pm
swmbo

I just got caught up on the log. Someone's temper tantrum was annoying waste of log space IMHO.

AS much as I love all of the improvements, the chat log refreshing every few seconds is driving me NUTS. It made reading the whole log take much longer. Is anyone else annoyed by this? Why can't we refresh ourselves as needed?
3:30 pm
Moozey

hi Swimmy how are you doing? I've just completed the puzzle and thinking of making a cup of tea
3:30 pm

Beat you by 30 secs there Moozey. Currently enjoying some PGT and (*gasps*) no chocolate :(

My pink handbag isn't showing? I have 101 words, lots to go yet LOL
3:31 pm
Zade

Hi Lola, i could do with a handbag, the amount of junk i carry around. It would have to be Louis Vuitton though, not a lego one!
3:32 pm
Anj

swmbo, you have to enable your profile to get it to show.
I didn't realise you can click on the handbags...
3:32 pm
lola100

At the risk of making a fool of myself yet again tonight I am about to ask for help. I am missing an ro5. I have to displease or disturb (ala becky!) and wandered.
3:32 pm
Moozey

Swimmy you have to go into profiles and add some details
3:32 pm
swmbo

Forgot to check Show Profile.

Must go look over what I have to see what I need to look for LOL
3:33 pm

the handbags are little head and shoulders of either a girl or a boy depending on your sex.

I thought you finished ages ago Anj

Anj

Lola, try another ending to your 'wandered' :)

AMN, if you go to yesterday's puzzle and click on the list of the person who is at the top, all of that day's words will be listed...
3:58 pm

Cathy, I got in a but of a frappe about that one as well ;)
4:01 pm
cathy22w

lol anj.... they just finished running a Green Tea frappe over here... it was excellent but it is, sadly, no more.. :-(
4:04 pm
Anj

Sounds nice. There's a Boston Tea Party place in town here that does some weird stuff. I've had both cinnamon and aniseed teas there. You could conceivably poison yourself in there if you were addicted to the leaf lol
4:05 pm
cathy22w

aniseed sounds interesting...not sure how it would be as a tea?
4:05 pm

You guys ever tried rooibos tea?

4:12 pm
lola100

It means red bush and is a tea made from a shrub that grows in SA. You can get it at Tesco and I believe it's quite popular in parts of Europe. Bit of an aquired taste though, but no caffeine.
4:15 pm
Anj

No caffeine? But I like sleepless nights, cold sweats & twitching...
4:16 pm
lola100

Why do you think I've swapped to coffee since discovering babble?!
4:21 pm
Anj

lol...I try to limit myself to one coffee a day but I do met freinds in Starbucks & Cafe Nero and almost always succumb to a white chocolate mocha
4:22 pm
lola100

Anj- my real weakness is coca cola. Can drink gallons of the stuff and love it first thing in the morning for breakfast :)
4:23 pm
melissamay

Hi all! I've read Anj's kind clue for wi6/30 at 1:36 several times and still don't get it -- and I can't tell whether it's because I'm not British or not bright. Any other clues to be had? Thanks in advance!
4:23 pm
cathy22w

oop... dozed off...
4:25 pm

Moozey- great minds?!
4:27 pm
Moozey

yes lol
4:27 pm

...I did a clue at 1:36??
4:29 pm

An abbreviated head piece with hair on it...
4:29 pm
melissamay

Oh my! As I suspected, it's "not bright." Moozey and lola, thanks for having great minds. :)
4:30 pm

you did Anj and it was quite a good one actually but of course it it Babble time not local time
4:31 pm
lola100

melissamay- lol! You're welcome :)
4:31 pm
Anj

Ah...Chocolate sticks you have without 'tea' ;)
Sorry, it's been a bit of a choccy crusade today.
Think savoury snacks that you get at hatches, matches & dispatches. Also come in marmite and curry flavour in you're in a pub.
...and you should still take off the T :)
4:31 pm
melissamay

Anj, this is the one I meant:

Mary, looks like a wi6/30.
Chocolate sticks you have without 'tea' ;)

and I thought the second sentence was the clue, so you can imagine my confusion!
4:32 pm
lola100

Are there chocolate sticks called that too? I've heard of the marmite (yuck, devil's poo) ones but no chocolate.
4:33 pm
cathy22w

marmite on toast with baked beans and cheese on top..... ohhhhhhhhh yum
4:33 pm
swmbo

I am SO confused! "Think savoury snacks that you get at hatches, matches & dispatches. Also come in marmite and curry flavour in you're in a pub.
...and you should still take off the T :)"
4:33 pm
Moozey

the chocolate ones are delish
4:34 pm
lola100

Need us to send you some marmite and heinz baked beans too? :)
4:35 pm
lola100

They make CHOCOLATE twi6/30's? Must find!
4:35 pm
cathy22w

i have marmite (thanks to visiting family) and i have managed to find myself PROPER baked beans (Heinz vegetarian).... so you are reprieved!!!!
4:35 pm
Moozey

I'll send you some swimmy so you know what we mean but the wi word add a t in front of it gives you a snack we get over here in the UK made from wheat and is coated in either marmite or curry or (my fav) Worcester Sauce. Please note the T word is not in today's puzzle
4:36 pm
cathy22w

howEVER, chocolate pig-like w/6's without the T sound wonderful!
4:36 pm
Anj

...i've created a monster!
4:37 pm

Sorry, should have said t wi6/30. Very excited about my new discovery :)
4:37 pm

ooops my mistake the chocolate ones I was thinking of are called Matchsticks
4:38 pm
swmbo

Phew!!! I thought it was a hint for a word. Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference beyween hints and jokes *sigh* thanks Moozey.
4:38 pm
cathy22w

i love matchsticks too... we can get them here
4:38 pm
Anj

Lola, they are VERY moreish. Even more than mini-eggs. Nibble at your peril :)
4:39 pm

you can't beat choc mini-eggs, I mean they are made of chocolate!!!
4:40 pm

4:42 pm
lola100

Eat off top of chocolate, lick out creme, eat rest of chocolate. Repeat as necessary, sometimes quite a lot :)
4:43 pm
cathy22w

didn't want to admit to eating more than one.... lol
4:44 pm
Anj

Yup, gotta go with Lola on this one. There's no dainty way to eat a creme egg. Besides, they're dangerous when they are only wounded...

5:41 pm
Jacula

It's a nice word though, isn't it (fegubrious)? Shall we invent a proper meaning for it and see if it appears in a new dictionary in about 2-3 years' time?
5:42 pm
Jera

That sounds like fun, Jacula! We used to play crazy scrabble in college, where we would invent words from the letters we got. We came up with some doozies (& fooled lots of people)!

vo4/7 - The winning of all the tricks during the play of one hand, as of bridge; a grand slam.

I only knew the rodent definition. I knew that using past tense as the clue would get you the word, whether it was tecnically correct or not. It does appear as though tit is correct.

Hi Gwen!
6:55 pm
Jacula

Dr_God. Know a chap on Beeb Radio 2 here in UK that could explode this site with members if we tell him about it. He did it for 'Friends Reunited' but, in my mind, and that of the founder members who were there at the start this may not be for the better (for the members). Should we tell him about you or not?
6:55 pm
Gwen

Hi Swmbo. About to go home, need any cloos?
6:55 pm

that's the primary definition of the vo4/7. I only knew about the rodent myself. I am not a bridge player. Click the word and see what dictionary dot com says about it.
6:56 pm

yikes - Emoticons, yes they would be cool - but I am having enough problems with the other icons and the flags after the names. But I will keep working on that when I have some spare time
