So I am wondering what the ratio of men to women playing this game is... just a curiosity factor... I have only seen two or three other men....is this is a reflection on my gender?

Hi all, here to find a few before bed
12:18 am

Well, don't try anoa. It's almost there ;)
12:18 am
GreyWoulf

Hi Schroeder, smallish one today (for a change)
12:18 am
stillcrazy

Hi Schroeder
12:19 am
GreyWoulf

There are a lot of almost words in this one!
12:19 am
cybernan

Looks like a toughie - got only 26 words on the first run through!
12:19 am
Schroeder

Haven't had a chance to finish the last few, work keeps getting in the way, like my odds with this one!!
12:19 am
GreyWoulf

only 14 here
12:20 am
sprite

And there I was, feeling proud that for once I did not forget that 'anoa' was a word... only to find it isn't here :)
12:21 am

That's ok, I tried ocean with the same result

30 left and time to get my kids fed and ready for school. Back soon, happy hunting!

Bye sprite
12:32 am

Oh no, I missed Grey Woulf...
12:40 am
Jera

Hi, Schroeder... oh good, I'm not the only one still incostume!
12:41 am
stillcrazy

Hi Jera
12:42 am
Schroeder

My daughter made this icon for me, not sure how to take it (at least we are the same size)
12:43 am
Jera

Hey stillcrazy!
12:44 am
Jera

I've been trying to get my daughter to draw me a picture for my icon... she gets nervous in front of an audience... but she' draw all day long... very fanciful!
12:46 am
sprite

So sorry to have missed your night hug, GreyWoulf... here's a good morning one for you, for later *hugs*
12:46 am
Schroeder

I found a whole bunch on my daughters computer, told her to come up with some more I could use. We will see at 14 it's hard to tell what she will do.
12:47 am
mab

Well look at everybody! Changed, every one, while I'm still in this silly orchid costume. Great icons.

Now, this grid....
12:48 am
mab

Oh dear, I forgot that I changed too.
12:48 am
sprite

I am the loyal kind. Haven't changed my icon since icons became part of this game.
12:48 am
Jera

Not me, I'm still in costume (although it's hard to tell sometimes)...
12:49 am
Jera

It's just as hard at 9 1/2, LOL!
12:50 am
mab

You are adorable, Jera. And Sprite, there is something comforting about your icon stability.
12:50 am
Schroeder

We need stable people like you around sprite
12:50 am
Jera

There... I feel like me again!
12:50 am
sprite

Comforting and stable... yes, I think I can live with that ;)
I love y
12:51 am
sprite

...your creativity, I wanted to say, when babble went and posted all of itself before I was ready.
12:51 am
Jera

Oh yes, in this uncertain & everchanging Babbleverse, we need all the stability we can get, LOL!
12:52 am
sprite

LOL!
12:55 am
sprite

I have the distinct feeling babble is dementing. After yesterday's sh*t we are back to kids' words now.
12:57 am
Jera

That was actually one of the words... had a good laugh since the chat bleeps worty dirds
12:58 am
mab

This seems to be the ultimate grid of almost words.
12:58 am
sprite

Babble is a hypocrite :D
Puts words in the list that it won't accept in the log.
12:59 am
sprite

So true, mab! Incredible, how many words you just can't make.
1:00 am
sherb

oh dear, I was having fun, but now I have to go to work :(

have a good day everyone :)
1:00 am
Schroeder

You to Sherb
1:00 am
sprite

Have a good day, sherb!
I see my most detested H word is in here... the dutch one for what grows on your head (well, for most of us).
1:01 am
Jera

Poor sherb... later!
1:02 am
sprite

Is it possible to have a blind spot for words starting with one particular letter? Stats say 4 x M-words, I have found zero.
1:04 am
Schroeder

Must go off to bed, to tired to be finding almost words!!
1:04 am
sprite

Sweet dreams, Schroeder! Found 2 Ms, posting helps ;)
1:05 am
Jera

I'm like that with vowel words, Sprite... have a terrible blind spot for them... when I finally get one, I almost always smack myself (especially small ones!)...
1:05 am
Jera

Sweet dreams, Schroeder! Come back after some rest!
1:09 am
sprite

I find vowels words are hard too. And for me the K-words. I hate K-words.
What a great way to start my day: babbling with you guys and getting an email starting:
"Problems can never be solved by using the same pattern of thought which created them."
(Albert Einstein)
1:10 am
Jera

It's 2am here in the US... what time is it where you are, Sprite?
1:12 am
sprite

It's 8 am here, and 11 minutes ;)
Time to send the kids to school. Back in a few mo's.
1:12 am
mab

An wonderful quote -- I just copied an pasted it. It is a tad ironic in this context.
1:16 am
Jera

Okay... I heard a weird noise in the next room, so I went to investigate... it was my four year old, fast asleep on the couch, grinding his teeth! Wonder if he's dreaming about eating candy? LOL!
1:18 am
mab

That's so cute!
1:19 am
sprite

How sweet!
I agree, Einstein's quote here tastes of irony, but hey, it have you another word, right? ;)
1:19 am
Jera

Kinda scarey... to hear from the next room! Sprite used to do that, drove me buggy... one of the reasons we stopped the family bed...
1:20 am
sprite

I never! ;)
1:21 am
Jera

Grrrr... I REALLY wanna spell carapace... but it doesn't exist in this puzzle (sez so on my screen!)...
1:21 am
sprite

What a lovely word!
1:28 am
mab

I think I will come back later to see what's not here. Bye for now and happy hunting.
1:30 am
Jera

Bye mab!
1:33 am
dalmatian5

Whoa - it's not 2:00 a.m. everywhere in the US. Mickey Mouse and I are just starting our evening of fun.....
1:35 am
Jera

Where are you, dalmatian?
1:36 am
dalmatian5

I live in Garden Grove - close to both Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm.
1:37 am
Jera

Ah... California, right? I'm in Virginia, near DC.
1:37 am
dalmatian5

Where are you Jera?
1:39 am

103 words / 4.77 / 1229 points it is then. Happy hunting to all of you!
1:39 am
dalmatian5

I have a very good friend living in Virginia and working in D.C. It has been a big change for her. She will be retiring soon and moving back out this way - maybe Nevada.
1:39 am
Jera

Oh Sprite... you amazing thing! I only have 39 words... good night, hon!
1:39 am

WTG sprite....night
1:40 am
Jera

I have relatives in Arizona... would be fun to visit that side of the country!
1:41 am
dalmatian5

Come on over. You can have the deserts but I love the mountains and the beaches.
1:47 am
Jera

AWe have some nice little mountains, Shenandoah Valley is quite lovely. I hate the city... give me woods, or at least a big backyard!
1:48 am
stillcrazy

Well that's it for me for tonight/morning. See you all later.
1:51 am
Jera

Later, crazy!
1:51 am
Jera

My goal is halfway before back to bed... we'll see if that happens... maybe some of my daughter's Halloween candy...
1:54 am
sprite

Good night to you all, while I am beginning my day ;)
At least, with the babble out of the way, I might get some real work done :D

anybody have the ca 7? is it too early to ask for a clue?

thanks
3:01 am
amandacath

166 words!?! it's taken me 15 minutes to find lousy 5 of them! There's gonna be quite a bit of monkey typing today, I'm afraid.
3:04 am
dalmatian5

amandacath - there are 103 words in the puzzle. But, I agree, they are difficult.
3:04 am
Eva

Woke up in the middle of the night and thought I'd take a whirl, but this is awful.....there must be a lot of very arcane ones. Better to go back to sleep.
3:04 am
Dianne

spatial - if I had the Ca 7s I'de give you clues - sorry.
3:05 am
spatialbean

thanks
3:07 am
dalmatian5

I've been on the puzzle two hours and only have 53 words! This is a difficult one!
3:08 am
spatialbean

I did it...3 hours...

*faints*

3:09 am
dalmatian5

Wow, I am totally impressed. Congratulations! How long have you been Babbling?
3:09 am
Dianne

spatial - how about those clues then?
3:13 am
spatialbean

Babbling about a month I guess...

What clues would you like? The 7s?

3:13 am
Dianne

The C7s - pleaseeeeeee
3:20 am

I love getting words with monkey typing :)
3:22 am

Thanks for the correction - added up Une's list wrong. Still, looks fairly daunting.

Hello to all......
3:25 am
Dianne

Hi Blaze.
3:26 am
spatialbean

ac 7/36 low concentration of carbon dioxide in the blood

ca 7/40 Any of several plants of the genera Lychnis and Silene...or the director of "The Piano" Jane Ca*****

co 7/36 builds on en 5/12

em 7/40 One who is guided by practical experience rather than precepts or theory

na 7/32 I can't find a def for, I got it on a2z

on 7/32 Of, relating to, or suggestive of dreams

pi 7/36 A light boat propelled by sails or oars

3:26 am
Blaze

This looks like a small but exciting grid.... any thing special or odd about it LOL
3:27 am
Blaze

Wow thank you Spatial bean
3:28 am
spatialbean

I hope that helps, one word just isn't anywhere. It may be a German spelling of a drug name. Not sure.
3:29 am
dalmatian5

Spatialbean - could you tell me how atoz works? I have gone to the website and all I find is a lot of links. I have no idea how to use it. Thanks!
3:30 am
Dianne

spatial - thank so much!
3:31 am
Blaze

This is the page of A2Z that is most helpful..... you type in the first two or three letter and fill With ? for the missing letters. (ac??) it will bring up all the ac4 letter words...then you see which bizarre or normal word you are missing......
3:32 am
spatialbean

a2z has to have the worst layout of any website! Go to the main page, then in the center scroll down to "Partial Letter Lookups". Put your beginning letters in the middle "begins" section and hit "go". It will give you words starting with those letters sectioned by number...3 letter words...4 letter words etc. Not fun but it helps.
3:34 am
dalmatian5

Thank you so much! I am going to follow your directions and see if I can make it work for me. I read about users going there and it was totally confusing to me.
3:35 am
spatialbean

Yes it's messy. Right now there is a huge neon blinking ad that doesn't help either!
3:37 am
Blaze

dalmation I put up a second screen and narrow it to block out the advertising..... then open just the pane that has what I want......I blocks the blinking....etc..... althugh there is still sometimes a small on at the bottom...
3:40 am
spatialbean

Nite nite kids! Sleepy...

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz z snore
3:40 am
Blaze

Nitey nite.... sweet dreams
3:41 am
dalmatian5

Is the web site: atozwordfinder.com? I cannot find anything on the page that says partial letter lookups. Maybe I have the wrong site.
3:42 am
Blaze

dalmation use the llink that I posted
3:44 am
dalmatian5

I'm sorry, where do I find the link you posted?

3:45 am
Blaze

http://www.a2zwordfinder.com/w ordlookup.html
sorry I don't think it fit on the post....
3:46 am
Paraxitic

another good site for that sort of stuff is www.morewords.com
3:47 am
Blaze

Allwords.com is on the babblers friends list (upper right corner)
3:49 am
dalmatian5

Thanks so much to all of your. It is so great the way people work together and are so willing to share. I have been at this less than 2 weeks and love it. I am pcking up more new words all the time.
3:50 am
amandacath

The na7/32 is one of 25 types of alkaloids in raw opium. Says Google. So now you know what to answer when someone asks what you learned today. ;-)
3:50 am
Blaze

and that is what Babble is all about.... have you been to the babble anon site yet...??
3:53 am
dalmatian5

Blaze - I have not. I was definitely on the wrong web site! I am going to have to explore all these wonders little by litte.
3:54 am

I am havinf so much trouble with the As.
I have these
ac x 4
ai x 1
am x 1
ar x 3

Any idea what ones I am missing?
3:55 am
Blaze

It is a second website started by a fellow babbler full of stuff for babblers.... there is a link at the bottom of friends of babble that will take you right to it... you may have to register but it is free..... there are stats posted every day to help with the grid and even reciepes.....
3:56 am
Blaze

This is what you need

ac 7/ 36
ac 6/ 21
ac 5/ 12
ac 4/ 5

ai 4/ 4
ai 4/ 4
ai 4/ 6

am 4/ 5

4:48 am
Chessy

Thanx Blaze:)
4:53 am

Start with the ac then add a baseball hat and fiddle for the rest. Wish I could give you a better clue.

Yes, I'm here to give clues should anyone want them.

6:56 pm
Tbug

one of the ca 6/21's - another word for dog or dog family
6:56 pm
Jacula

1st ca6/21 - think of dogs. 2nd ca6/21 - you know Aussies call a can of beer a 'tinnie'? Well, this is what they might call it if they kept the word can. Sounds 'knowledgeable'.
6:57 pm
Tbug

other ca 6/21 sounds like something coincidental or strange is un ca**** (last two letters are vowels)
6:58 pm
Jacula

ca7/40 is a type of wild flower, often thought of as a weed. Most common are red ca7/40 and white ca7/40. Start off with what you do in a tent. Failing that, think of a winner but take out the 2nd letter.

7:19 pm

LOL Temple! I always say it takes one to know one!
8:34 pm
Jacula

Lucky - do you mean the ta6/21? Are you sure you've doubled the consonant in the middle? I can't try typing words in myself because I've got them all, so don't know if there's a fault with the site. Try it again (after checking it's not already on your list) but type it in more slowly. Sounds daft, I know, but sometimes works.
8:38 pm
Jacula

Ruby - the way this site divided the words 'psycho' and 'therapist' reminded me of a comedy sketch on UK TV where a signwriter got it all wrong and painted something like, 'M.A. Niac. Psycho the Rapist'. LOL.
8:38 pm

8:46 pm

Ruby - in your field you need a mad sense of humour. I know! Incidentally, my doctor, my dentist and my surgeon, plus my two ex-neighbours (who both worked in mental health and had a 'mad' child who put 'poo' in their fridge) all have a mad sense of humour. My dentist says things like (when he's drilling for a filling), 'Oh! If I drill any deeper I'll have brain tissue on the end of my bit!'.
8:47 pm

8:53 pm

There's only one 'ia' and that was clued for a while ago on the log. Depends whether you're from UK or across the pond whether you get the baseball or soccer clues for that. Failing that, sounds like a branch of nursing concerned with caring for old folks.
8:53 pm

IA6 - suffix meaning "Of or relating to a specified kind of medical practice, treatment, or healing."

8:57 pm

Ruby - if you were from UK, which I don't think you are, given the time you're here, I would clue you for the 'ia' word by saying 'German score of 3 goals in soccer'. Guess that won't help you though?

Okay, Ruby. Ginger Spice's first name was (is) Geri (Halliwell). Take her first name and apply it to a branch of nursing that cares for old folks, then take away the first 3 letters.

Mmmmmm Chocolate martini:
Ice
2 fluid ounces chocolate liqueur
1 1/2 fluid ounces vodka
1/2 ounce grated chocolate

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the chocolate liqueur and vodka to the shaker. Shake briskly to mix and chill. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the chocolate
9:09 pm

more chocolate liq than vodka, I see. Suggest that you look for Godiva liq.

jac - I suspect that you can. They aren't all that big. You can get one for as few as 10 bottles, and up to 200. Ours is somewhere in-between, and occurred because our dishwasher died. We decided that we had more of a need for the fridge than for a dishwasher.

nite lucky.

actually, we have three teens part-time. but they help with the dish-washing.

9:30 pm
Jacula

But one thing I will comment on is a habit all of the males, whatever age, that congregate our house at one time or another, indulge in... of them in all, including ex-hubby.... they walk into kitchen and open fridge and peer into it, then close it, walk over to kettle, switch it on and then walk over to fridge and open it again... WHY??? LOL.
9:31 pm
RubyBlues

LOL Jac....my son is away at college, its his first year
9:31 pm

hmm. all of the males on hubby's side cook. his son once refused, in his early teens, saying that it was 'women's work'. now, guess who's copying my recipes. :)
9:32 pm

What they have told me is that they think 'something new' may have appeared in the last 2 seconds since they last looked. ????????????

9:33 pm

it's the gremlins in the fridge.
9:35 pm
ruffh2o

since we have a heavy emphasis on cooking in the house, ours just walk to 'the list' and point to something, asking us when we will make it. 'The list' is a group of recipes for which I can guarantee we have all of the appropriate ingredients.
9:35 pm
Jacula

My son (21) says that, Ruff. Still can't forget he was the best and most innovative cook in his year at school, when forced to cook. He still doesn't cook for all of us now, but has started to go out and buy stuff and cook for himself, if desperate. I feel that cooking for rest of us won't be tooo far away (a decade or so).

Ruff, take solace in the fact that one day (about 4 or 5 years from now) the girls will turn to you and say "Gee, Mom, I used to think you were so stupid and had no taste -- but you were right!".

funny how they think that we know nothing.

we were playing a board game, and one decided to swear at her sister, calling her a 'poto'. I waited for a minute to see where it would go, and then told her that if she wanted to call her sister a bi*** in Spanish that she could at least get it right. She was mortified.
9:48 pm

Is they come home and 'rant' or come home and cry - everything's fine - they eat SOMETHING after that. If they come home any say nothing anfd go up to their room... then you worry.

Hi nena :)

Thanks MAMA, like your dancers too!

I'm not a diehard about martinis. Cosmos & pomegranate martinis are what we do. Else it's margaritas.

We didn't like vodka until we discovered belvedere.
10:15 pm
Jacula

Oh, the cutters! Yes, my daughter knows a few of those. Two are the house regs I mentioned earlier. One's just 'playing at it', the other means it a little more, but neither of them reach the heights either me or my daughter saw in her clinic. If you mean it, your guts are hanging out. Christ! What am I saying? I get so upset when I see the lightest of cuts on the lads here - the girls I saw doing it in the clinic meant 'business'.
10:15 pm
RubyBlues

MMMM I love cosmos
10:15 pm
mamabear

OMG nenalui - could it have been any easier. For that, I don't deserve any more clues..... how embarrassing
10:16 pm
ruffh2o

ah. ok, I get it. it looked like a 'dip' to me, but I wasn't sure.
10:16 pm
RubyBlues

Its difficult trying to help them every day Jac
10:16 pm
GreyWoulf

I think I may be allergic to gin since my mother is.

The drink I tend to prefer mixed or straight is amaretto.
10:16 pm
nenaluli

haha no, there are some easy ones I missed too :oP
10:16 pm
mamabear

yes, dancing, dipping. all related.
10:17 pm
mamabear

10:17 pm
nyxori

hi all! can anyone help with me out with ir 5/10?
10:17 pm
ruffh2o

this one is under treatment. I just worry about the damage done when she tells her friends the 'hows' and 'whys'. then again, there's enough info on the 'net anyway, for someone to figure it out if they want to.
10:17 pm
Jacula

Incidentally, my son's not one of the' cutters or nutters' and neither is my other half.
10:17 pm
RubyBlues

well its almost 1130 in NY and things to do in the am...

10:19 pm
mamabear

OK!!!!!!! Bring it on Mustard Man!!! LOL LOL LOL LOL
10:19 pm
Jacula

Ruff - I don't normally say this much on the net either. Register on Babblers' Anonymous and then we can talk privately, should you wish.
10:19 pm
nenaluli

Ir 5/10 is Ir 4/4 + a vowel.
10:19 pm
ruffh2o

Ir 4/4: After washing and drying your clothes, you **** them so they won't have wrinkles.
10:19 pm
nyxori

thanks, just figured it out...so close to the end (for once)
10:19 pm
Jacula

Ruff - if hubby's got a downer on the convo, put him on to me and I'll put him right.
10:19 pm
Smeltzdog

ruff...ask mama.
10:20 pm
mamabear

Oh yes ruffh - you should see it - not everybody can wear a hot dog bun the way Smeltz does!
10:20 pm
pbr

What about IR6
10:20 pm
ruffh2o

shoot, I don't have ir6
10:20 pm
nenaluli

Alanis Morisette song: And isn't it Ir6? don't you think?
10:20 pm

10:21 pm

thanks, just figured it out - so close to the end (for once)
10:21 pm
ruffh2o

guess I was in the mood for a chat. sorry to bring everybody down.

change of topic? hot dogs in heels, perhaps?
10:21 pm
mamabear

Yeah, what's with this OHIO STATE thing anyway???? You can do better than THAT! In the meantime, you got anything on cr 6/21?
10:22 pm
nenaluli

Cr 6/21: think skull. It has 2 vowels at the end.
10:22 pm
Smeltzdog

I sure do. finished earlier.
Why?
10:23 pm
mamabear

may I have a clue, oh great one?
10:23 pm
ruffh2o

I've never heard of an allergy to gin.

Wow. Back in the 70's, my Mom & I were addicted to amaretto & vanilla ice cream.
10:24 pm
Smeltzdog

I hate playing certain games wher you have to be completely obnoxious. cr6 is close to one of those games.
10:24 pm
mamabear

never mind smeltzy - nenalui came to my rescue....how about the ta 6/21????
10:24 pm
ruffh2o

woo hoo! 88 words and no a2z. and waaaay too much chatting.
10:24 pm
Jacula

Ruff - like I said - you know wher to register and contact me.
10:24 pm
GreyWoulf

My friends mock me for my amaretto preference -- they call it a girly drink
10:25 pm
ruffh2o

switch to sambuca. more kick
10:25 pm
mab

Was someone looking for Ir6? Normal everday word - put an ic on the end of your ir4.

I need pe6 clue, please? I know its a kind of boat, but that isn't helping.
10:25 pm
mamabear

I have to say my favorite is rum. Maybe I was a pirate in a previous life
10:25 pm
Jacula

Probably time for me to go now; probably said far too much anyway. Only came her to give clues for grid. Bye.
10:25 pm
nenaluli

ta 6/21... tough to explain. it has to do with flavoring and the way things taste in your mouth. a very dry wine is ta****
10:26 pm
GreyWoulf

The truth is I don't hav the money to spend on liquor that often so I tend to stick to sipping wines instead,
A bottle lasts longer that way
10:26 pm
nenaluli

and I love the obnoxious game!
10:26 pm
ruffh2o

bye jac. 'til tomorrow or whatever. thanks for the chat. really.
10:26 pm
Smeltzdog

mama...think of the name of that boat that sank when it hit a wee bit of ice. don't use the first part and double the consonant in the middle.
10:26 pm
mamabear

wines... ahhhh. merlot....
10:27 pm
GreyWoulf

MAMA, I am definitely in your corner there--- rum in any form will always be accepted
10:27 pm

I love how threads twist back upon themselves in an almost noneuclidean geometry
10:28 pm
mamabear

Doggy, I take back almost all the nasty things I've said about you - that was an awesome clue!!! So good, I think I might ask for another... how about ma 5/22 & ma 5/14????
10:28 pm
JBsAnno

Hey, Grey W - how's the SEPTA strike treating you?
10:28 pm
bbnaz

10:28 pm
ruffh2o

ack. riesling. so sweet.

however, I tried a good wine last weekend. Trimibach Gewurtztraminer '02 from Alsace. now I just have to find it in the shops.
10:28 pm
nenaluli

Pi 7: I have a *** number for my atm card + the last letter in that word + I have a 4 *** poker.
10:28 pm
mab

ta6 acid. It's what's in tea and wine. Think of getting brown in the sun, double the last letter, and then add ic.
10:29 pm
ruffh2o

SEPTA...geez...east coast
10:29 pm
nenaluli

Ma 5/22: a type of bird. The point value will help you in this one.
10:29 pm
JBsAnno

Philly commuters untie!
10:30 pm
GreyWoulf

JBsAnno, personally I'm not touched by it. However, PLymouth Mall has been hit hard. Too many people who work for the various stores can't get to work because they take the bus
10:30 pm
Smeltzdog

ma 5/22
It's the same name for a bird and a little country. Spelled differently
10:30 pm
nenaluli

In college, you study ma5/14economics.

10:32 pm

A lot of the demographic of the shoppers appears to be bus riders as well -- The mall was a ghost town ALL day today
10:33 pm
mamabear

OH NO!! I have no no's
10:33 pm
JBsAnno

That's a definite no-no, MamaB!

10:37 pm
ruffh2o

someone who makes a ca*** appearance in a film
10:38 pm
JBsAnno

Thanks, smeltz, I didn't have the film ca***.
10:38 pm
Dianne

10:39 pm
mab

Thanks Ruff. Why didn't I see that?

Pe6? It's a boat, but I can't find the boat.
10:39 pm
nenaluli

commercials :)
10:39 pm
mab

Thank you Dianne!
10:39 pm
ruffh2o

I can't find the boat either.
10:39 pm
JBsAnno

I love doing the chat first time the puzzle rolls over and then with less than 2 hours to go - that's when the clues come thick and fast.
I love you guys!
10:39 pm

Evening all!!

10:40 pm

i give up...........guess i will try tomorrow
10:40 pm
nenaluli

No 5 is No 4/4 (french for black), with the last 2 letters reversed, and a vowel at the end.
10:41 pm
JBsAnno

nyori, monkey type the no 4/4 seaweed to add a vowel at the end.
10:41 pm
ruffh2o

agree, jb
10:41 pm
nyxori

i swear i tried that...thanks!
10:42 pm
Schroeder

I have 14 to go, hope for a miracle.
10:42 pm
Smeltzdog

is mama antisocial?
10:42 pm
ruffh2o

any other suggestions for the pe boat?
10:42 pm
ruffh2o

mama fell off the planet after the no's
10:43 pm
GreyWoulf

Schroeder, I still have 54 to go, so don't feel bad
10:44 pm
Schroeder

Earlier today it seemed everyone had finished I'm glad to see I'm not alone
10:44 pm
JBsAnno

ruff (always shorthanding the names here), take the pe 5/12, and go to the tried and true monkey typing to add another vowel.
10:44 pm
mab

The boat: pe6

it is in the middle three rows. Like your Pe5 pasta, but use an 'ia' ending.
10:44 pm
mamabear

ruff & smeltz - why are you stuttering???
10:46 pm
ruffh2o

thanks mab. I was up to my ears in my shorter oxford, and wasn't getting far
10:47 pm
ruffh2o

if you're talking about the repeat on the screen, I don't know what causes it. refresh sometimes helps.
10:48 pm
mamabear

Why can't I get that french black drunken word with a vowel on the end to work?????
10:48 pm
ruffh2o

mama - what are your first two letters?
10:48 pm
Smeltzdog

are you drinking again mama?
10:48 pm
mamabear

no
10:49 pm
ruffh2o

french black drunken word - just reverse the last 2 letters
10:49 pm
JBsAnno

3 more words to get to 50, then feed the cats and off to bed.
Someday (standing with smeltzdog on the ottoman) I'll finish a puzzle *starry eyed look* but I'm happy to get at least half the words.
10:49 pm
mamabear

how am I supposed to concentrate when you wear your super hot dog suit? You KNOW what that does to me!!!
10:50 pm
ruffh2o

sh** smeltz, I just refreshed & your icon changed. lol.
10:50 pm
JBsAnno

Because, MamaBear, you're using the wrong no 4/4. Not the film no**, but the type of seaweed no**
Yes?
10:50 pm
Smeltzdog

Smeltzdog had a small ottoman...feels slightly claustrobhopic and a little uncomfortable.
10:50 pm
GreyWoulf

JBsAnno - stick with me and it will happen, just ask MAMABEAR --- she'll tell you!
10:50 pm
mamabear

ok. that gives me the other 4/4 i need the 5/10
10:50 pm
ruffh2o

add a vowel, mama
