melonheadjujube

Thanks everyone. I've had to biopsies in the last two years - 1st one showed abnormal noncancerous. the second was my 1st digital mammo, and because of my family history the doctr wanted to take a look at some tiny micro calcifications that she said she would have waited on had I not been high risk. They were negative. Guess taking tamoxifen is paying off.

Ah, you answered the question. Silly homeland insecurity.
1:01 am
westford

good word for it jilli
1:01 am
Just1Mar

i just renewed my passport. it took fewer than 9 days from when i dropped it in the outbound mailbox at the post office to having my new passport delivered. i was... startled.
1:02 am

1:04 am

here, the kids will need passports if we want to go across any borders. nobody slides on mom and dad's passports any more, i guess.
1:04 am
Just1Mar

well weatherwise it can be a real bitch unless you live where jilli does
1:04 am
nobabble

and i'll need the passport just to fly domestically, possibly, in another year or so.
1:04 am

jillibus

1:09 am
westford

It's a law here that it must look terrible
1:09 am
nobabble

i am under the impression that canadian border control is making sure people have the appropriate documents coming in, to be sure of getting rid of them later.
1:09 am
Just1Mar

my drivers permit pix is great tho!
1:10 am
nobabble

can't have americans stranded in canada, eh?
1:10 am
Just1Mar

this is prob true nobab
1:10 am
jillibus

west, same here -- no smiles or anything. Dumb idea smiles whoudl be mandatory, to show the teeth which are so identifiable.
1:10 am
Just1Mar

well if our dollar was still .60 they'd prob encourage you to stay for sure nobab lolol
1:10 am

1:17 am
jillibus

I had a choice of Columbia (Barnard for women in those days), Vassar, Mt Holyoke, I forget the others -- chose McGill because although there would be residence (none for Columbia because reachable by subway) it was still cheaper.
1:17 am

ndanlia- now you're scaring me. i'm trying to figure out the homebirth loophole.
1:17 am

1:18 am
nobabble

the only person i know who went to mt holyoke is... not someone i like, we'll just say. columbia's alright. mcgill would be my pick from those as well, though.
1:19 am
Just1Mar

well but jilli went a long long time ago nobab
1:19 am

Nice to hear, nobab!

Hi sprite!
1:23 am
nobabble

i was thinking about new york city (where columbia is), which got me thinking about other colleges in teh city, which reminded me of the useless fact that my dad got a masters degree from queens college, in new york.
1:23 am
Just1Mar

I know you do jilli, but I don't think the yanks knew that
1:24 am
sprite

I got a reaction from MsABS about the tellytubbies' plague. She apologises sincerely. The kids had been shown a pic of only the grid, no URL, with the assignment to copy it and find 10 words as homework.
1:24 am
nobabble

(in 1956. he is somewhat younger than jillibus)
1:24 am

Most yanks know zilch about Canada
1:24 am

smart little creatures weren't they lol
1:25 am

what happened afterward shocked her. The kids have been lectured by her, by the school's principal and letters with pieces of the chat have been sent to their parents.
1:25 am
nobabble

"college" is... what, in canada?
1:25 am
Just1Mar

I only say yanks (dear americans) cause its shorter to spell and easier to type :D
1:25 am

1:26 am

I was called a Yank by a Brit in a pub in London and was delighted
1:26 am
Just1Mar

I'm surprised that you do know now nDan.....any particular reason?
1:26 am
sprite

I think that is because last year something like this has happened as well, 1Mar. And the letter to the parents is mainly because they should know their little darlings give out personal information on the internet, on an adult website.
1:27 am
autumn moon

please tell me what happened with MsAbs. What did I miss?
1:27 am
jillibus

nobab, one of my other possibilities was Queens College in Queens, NY, lol, because I lived in Forest Hills, Queens, lol. I assumed you were referring to the Canadian Queen's University :)
1:27 am

oh goody westie..then I'll just keep on and delight you somemore! :D

good question, west, lol!
1:29 am
nDanLia

yanks started out as a derogatory term
1:29 am
sprite

some babblers really jumped on MsAbs about it, people were very irritated. She wants us all to know she never meant this to happen, the kids weren't supposed to go on the internet with it at all. Just to write down some words after copying the grid.
1:29 am
westford

have just a little trouble with yank as I'm a sox fan lol
1:29 am

How old are you, if I may ask nDan?

1:31 am
Just1Mar

celtics?
1:31 am

and now he's with the Mets?
1:31 am

it was adopted, and about 200 y o now, so hist isnt remembered
1:32 am

Celtics are basketball
1:32 am

I don't know.....since the aholes at MLB pulled the plug on the Expos I don't have any interest in baseball anymore :(
1:32 am

did you get an answer from her as well, jilli?
1:32 am
jillibus

nobab, a year ago a bunch of kids in Australia came on and flung obscenities around for ages -- turned out they had been told about Babble as a project to improve theri vocabularies, lol!
1:32 am
Just1Mar

I know they are westie but you said it that's why I asked...
1:33 am
westford

oh
1:33 am
jillibus

no, sprite, she didn't reply
1:33 am
westford

they just might have a chance at winning first time in over 20 years
1:33 am

so nDan you were doing the home schooling?
1:34 am

re baseball I'm just like just1mar

thanks. i think i'm all caught up now. scanning chat logs. weird.
1:34 am

yes - working on europe now
1:34 am

homeschooling as the parent, i'm assuming.
1:34 am
westford

did they explain why they did away with the Expos?
1:34 am
sprite

ok, I thought something like that might be the matter. I was rather calm in my email, not at all sure she was to blame. Perhaps she felt more comfortable answering me and asking me to relay the message to you all... some people ate her alive, lol, and she understood completely why.
1:34 am
nobabble

(we homeschool, too)
1:35 am
jillibus

I was polite too, sprite
1:35 am
Just1Mar

yes and it's all bs
1:35 am
westford

did they move them?
1:35 am
sprite

I know, jilli, can't imagine you being rude at all.
1:35 am
westford

give them a new name?
1:35 am
jillibus

It was Claude Brochu, who was in it just to turn a fast buck
1:36 am
Just1Mar

they allowed the expos to be bought out from Bronfman to a bunch of incompetant greedy pigs and it was downhill from that point on
1:36 am
nobabble

you know, it's actually pretty impressive that babble chat hasn't been completely overrun by annoying people (myself not included).
1:36 am
Just1Mar

they're the washington nationals now :(

1:36 am

Hey, Jilli. How many words do you have now?
1:36 am
sprite

must be quite a task, homeschool your kids. And don't they miss out on the social learning they do in school?
1:37 am
nobabble

yes! they miss out on all the terrible social situations created in school. thank goodness.
1:37 am
Just1Mar

or the social aspect of school?
1:37 am
sprite

we hope it never will, nobabble. This community is precious to a lot of babblers. We are a supportive bunch that appreciate eachother very much.
1:37 am
nobabble

instead, they just have regular friends they get together with, constantly.
1:37 am
jillibus

nobab, Dr_God can cut off objectionable intruders. But one horrible night he was asleep and a bunch of trolls took over for hours.
1:37 am
Just1Mar

I can understand that but do they have friends?
1:38 am
nDanLia

very active in sports & plays & library runs many afternoon programs & have large h/s networks here; univ also offer many summer & weekend acad mini-courses
1:38 am
nobabble

we're part of a homeschool group, which gets together weekly for park days, and various other outings and gatherings. plus we've got neighbor kids around, and various personal friends.
1:38 am
sprite

well, social learning is not only about friends. It is also about learning to handle situations with people you would never pick out yourself. As you will need to do in later life as well.
1:38 am
Just1Mar

I think that you've done a wise thing nDan
1:38 am
jillibus

autumn, I still have all of 2 words, lololol!

Homeschooled children have friends. That's like asking if stay at home moms have friends.

Jill - and I still have 6. Been chatting on MSN instead of looking.
1:39 am

homeschooling is not at all common in the netherlands, i have gathered.
1:42 am

wow nobabble... i think you are attacking actually
1:42 am
nobabble

and yes, schools seems rather a lot better in that area of the world, though i would still likely prefer to keep my kids with me a lot more.
1:42 am
nobabble

i'm sorry if i seem to be attacking. i am not meaning to.
1:43 am

nope, totally not. Very small country. Schools are always very nearby, not big, and with very good teachers mostly.
1:43 am

I'm glad I went to the schools I went to, and there were quite a few.
1:43 am

but mrP... today was D-Day, right? How did it go?

alas, not so much the same here. schools are big, with overworked and stressed teachers. :(

1:45 am

in my son's class was a big bully, and school did everything to regulate his behaviour. Better still, they payed even more attention to the kids that had trouble with the bully. All learned from it, and no-one suffered lasting pain. I am very impressed with how school handled it.
1:45 am

I want critted... as in what a critter does. But no ;)

1:47 am

yw!
1:47 am

nDan: they made up a contract, with bully and his parents, at last. If the rules in it would be violated again, the kid would have had to leave school. They take bullying very seriously here.

big thing here is that would hurt the self-esteem, but now the victims are standing up more & contacting media; nob - yes, too many teachers are coming up as not caring or now being caught in the stings, sary

oh I know it is the money is spent on everything but education and that's the most important
1:52 am
mrpresident

the school bully is no longer a bully and he spends alot of time with us... it was his PARENTS that didn't give a damn about him, not the teachers
1:52 am
sprite

we tried that, mrP. But this kid comes from a whole family of bullies... no cure there, without the parents' realisation there might be something wrong at home. But school made it work anyway. Very impressive.
This school cares about kids, and about schooling, and about making it fun. Can't imagine the extra time they spend on making things special.
1:52 am
westford

bullying usually has an underlying reason
1:52 am
jillibus

Um, don't the parents have something to do with the kids' attitude toward teachers?
1:52 am
Just1Mar

it's our society in general.....too many single parent families that cannot be there for their kids
1:53 am
sprite

absolutely, jilli!
1:53 am

or want teachers to handle it all
1:53 am

back in the undark ages, when a kid was reprimanded at school the parents back up the teachers. Now it seems in some schools the parents sue the teachers for scolding the little horrors

yeah... stupid parents, these, nobabble. Missing out on all the important things their kids go through, and not giving them what they need.

The good thing is, it is a long term plan, so if it fails, I can keep doing the same thing until it does work... that way, I don't lose my limb.

We are managing quite well together. We go through the days giving eachother some space and some support, we distribute the things that have to be done and do so without fighting.
Also sorted out some financial stuff yesterday, which gave us some true relief. Other than that... it is a tough period of time, lyn. But we will get through it.

I think "cosad" could be a person helping unhappy people, but it doesn't exist in the dictionary.
2:32 am
sprite

it is, in a way, Katie. Some very basic things... like saying what is on our mind, using 'I' and not 'you'. Being honest about what we need. And making clear we do not expect the other to give us that, just to help making it possible.
2:32 am

I think I would prefer a 'cohap' then, ajv :D

part is in her profile, Andree. She told us it went very well. In addition to her profile text she told us it is a long term plan, which means that if it shouldn't work, it can be done again until it does work, and she does not have to lose the limb. Also she said she was happy it would be soon (the surgery).

Haz, is your icon a clue today? :)
8:51 am

The major disadvantage of dalmatians is that they shed hair, all day, every day. But great fun companions.
8:52 am

and bounce all day every day?
8:52 am
Haz1558

Yes, it's a clue to two words (do5 and do6) It's not very subtle, I'm afraidl
8:52 am

Yes, lots of energy. She used to walk to school with me to pick up the girls and the children queued up for pats.

Haha...her tongue looks so big in that picture!!
8:54 am

8:55 am

What time do you start work, Uniquity?

Ah, so you have time to babble before you go.
8:58 am

I've already finished babble...and it is just 11 am my time. I see a nap in my future..

thanks
9:12 am
Haz1558

I know. The story develops beautifully with Bertie trying desperately just to be a normal boy.
9:13 am
Uniquity

The use of "creation" in relation to Bertie gets me all riled up. I read it in a day or two so I was thinking about it a lot.
9:14 am
Haz1558

It is just a story, but there are probably lots of Bertie and Irenes everywhere..
9:16 am
Uniquity

At least the phrase "Indigo child" wasn't used yet. Fiction gets me so upset sometimes, :)
9:17 am
Atalante

Indigo child??
9:18 am
Haz1558

Children born after 1970's thought to be a higher state of evolution. Isn't google great?
9:18 am
Uniquity

Yes...indigo children are theoretically more evolved and far superior than all others. Mothers usually think they deserve better than the best and are...well...nuts.
9:18 am
Uniquity

It's just an extreme version of "my kids an uber-genius"
9:18 am
Atalante

oooooooo
9:19 am
Atalante

especially when someone else googles things for you!!
9:19 am
Haz1558

See, this is where I fall down in the smug stakes. I should have pretended to know what Uniquity was talking about all along.
9:20 am

bye all,better get some jobs done
9:20 am
Haz1558

You mean Lori doesn't think you're a genius? Has she not damaged your psyche by being less than complimentary?
9:20 am
Uniquity

To be fair, I learned it from books and an episode of CSI :)
9:20 am
Haz1558

Bye jess.
9:21 am
Haz1558

Well, if you learned it from books, that's great. CSI just backed it up.
9:21 am
Uniquity

I should take this issue up with her...but extremists believe that other inferior children oughtn't exist. So that might result in murder. Bad idea.
9:21 am
Haz1558

Oh well, that's taking things FAR too far. It's one thing to be a doting parent, quite another to wish ill on others.
9:22 am
Uniquity

I doubt it is that common to be that extreme. Maybe only in fiction. Hopefully only in fiction.
9:23 am
Haz1558

I'm hoping it's only in fiction as well, but people are capable of monstrous things.
9:23 am

Haz1558

Ah, Jordan.
9:25 am
Uniquity

Jordan?
9:25 am
Atalante

there's one woman who shouldn't have reproduced!
9:25 am
Atalante

google "jordan and peter"
9:25 am
Haz1558

Google Jordan and Peter Andre. Have a bucket ready.
9:25 am
Atalante

especially their wedding
9:26 am
Uniquity

Okay, looking.
9:26 am
Haz1558

You remember Jordan, Uniquity - mother of Princess Tiiiiiiiiaaaaaammmmmmmmmiiiiiii.
9:26 am
Atalante

and the creator of THE DRESS
9:26 am
Haz1558

And you know how I deplore excessive letters. She named that child to annoy me, I'm convinced.
9:26 am
Atalante

no, not creator, inspiration for
9:27 am
Uniquity

Well...I have lots of tabloid trash. Not learning much other than that they love the limelight.
9:27 am
Uniquity

Whoa, just got a shot of her bust. Who are these people?!
9:27 am
Haz1558

Google images - the DRESS is there.
9:27 am
Vicuna

Good day, fair damsels.
9:27 am
Atalante

looool
9:28 am
Haz1558

Hello Vicuna. You've joined us at a high point in the conversation.
9:28 am
Vicuna

Ah, Jordan again, I see.
9:28 am
Uniquity

That's a large dress....nearly makes her bust seem proportionate.
9:28 am
Atalante

hi vi!
9:28 am
SharonRA

if uncooth is a word, cooth should be too.
9:28 am
Haz1558

Yes. Blame Atalante, in FM's absence.
9:28 am
Uniquity

They look like Barbie and Ken...
9:28 am
Atalante

she has various children by various different footballers
9:28 am
Vicuna

Yeah, but it would be couth.
9:29 am
Atalante

and "pop stars"
9:29 am
Haz1558

They sing, Uniquity. It's worse than Vicuna.
9:29 am
Vicuna

lol, Haz.
9:29 am
Uniquity

...how many letters in Tiami? Tiiaammii? This is ludicrous.
9:30 am
Uniquity

These people are orange. There is nothing right in their world.
9:30 am
Haz1558

It's a made up name. They actually call the baby Princess. Enough said.
9:30 am
Uniquity

I cannot google any further.
9:30 am
Atalante

lmao
9:30 am
harpjane

hello
9:30 am
Vicuna

Nice icon clue, harpjane! lol
9:31 am
Haz1558

The thing is, they take themselves seriously. THEY are the product. And people buy stuff about them.
9:31 am
Haz1558

Hello harpjane.
9:31 am
featherbee

omg. just googled the dress. her boobs look like melons!!!
9:31 am
harpjane

how many letters is the bottom row a?
9:31 am
Uniquity

Jordan was born with five names,I see. Raised for the insanity.
9:31 am
Atalante

she has her own very classy perfume
9:31 am
harpjane

thanks vic
9:31 am
bootshoe

they missed the word fritto
9:31 am
harpjane

does anyone have an icon clue today?
9:31 am
Haz1558

She has actually had the chest expanders reduced to more natural proportions.
9:31 am
Haz1558

I do, harpjane!
9:31 am
Uniquity

She ran for election and offered free breast implants. This must be stopped.
9:32 am
Haz1558

She just loves publicity, full stop. We're playing into her hands. Aaargh!
9:32 am
harpjane

lol haz different versions of the same word, you and i?
9:33 am
Uniquity

Her proportions are far from natural, methinks. There is nothing about her that I would ever look at and say real.
9:33 am
Haz1558

So we do, harpjane.
9:34 am
Vicuna

Hmm... not a lot of good icon options, methinks...
9:34 am
Haz1558

But that's what she wanted, Uniquity. Stand out from the crowd. Have such a big bust that nobody could get within five feet of her.
9:34 am
Uniquity

I'm glad we Canadians offer mostly comedians, rather than trashy musicians/models, etc :D
9:34 am
Atalante

how she rides horses properly and doesn't topple over their necks, I'll never know
9:34 am
Haz1558

It's pretty limited today, Vicuna.
9:35 am
Haz1558

We're deeply ashamed, Uniquity. She hasn't conquered the global market yet, and hopefully she never will.
9:35 am
Haz1558

She has the most ghastly speaking voice - all whiney and monotone.
9:35 am
Haz1558

Apart from that I don't have strong feelings about her.
9:36 am
Uniquity

No, no feelings at all.
9:36 am
Atalante

her husband is just as bad
9:37 am
Haz1558

He's Australian, isn't he?
9:37 am
Haz1558

Or does Cyprus claim him as a favourite son?
9:37 am
Atalante

both adore him
9:38 am
Haz1558

Is it true he's to be given The Australian Order of The Kangaroo for services to Australian emigration?
9:38 am
Atalante

Kangaroo Poo maybe
9:39 am
Vicuna

There. I'm a clue. Not a very exciting one, but oh well.
9:39 am
Haz1558

It's a good one, the explanation helps.
9:40 am
Atalante

good pic
9:41 am
Vicuna

It just seems so hard to believe that with all these letters, one can't get either teeth or tooth.
9:41 am
Atalante

or sooey
9:42 am
Vicuna

Or detox.
9:45 am
Vicuna

Apparently the chat is now officially de4/6.
9:45 am
Uniquity

Off topic, but does everyone who uses firefox know of the imminent release of FF3? THey are trying to break a world record for most software downloads in one day.
9:46 am
Atalante

i already have the beta version
9:47 am
Uniquity

Yeah..they released that much earlier. I don't know what the numbers are, but that might decrease the whole world record breaking part.
9:47 am
Haz1558

Is that a cue for smug?
9:47 am
Haz1558

Could a mass download cause internet failure in a corner or two of the globe?
9:48 am
Haz1558

Is this something we should be actively considering?
9:49 am
Uniquity

I like going to the pledge map and see some rather unexpected countries planning to download it.(No need to do it Haz, I am just being a corporate sell-out :))
9:49 am
Haz1558

Has Ballymena pledged yet?
9:51 am
Uniquity

So, I've just looked up Ballymena as my geography is...non-existant. You're in Ireland??
9:52 am
Vicuna

(Northern Ireland.)
9:53 am
Haz1558

Northern Ireland. County Antrim.
9:54 am
Haz1558

Ballymena is the town. It's just that some people around here think that the word begins and ends in it!
9:54 am
Vicuna

Maybe it's Haz's imagination we're all figments of.
9:54 am
Uniquity

I'm glad I never took Geography. I would go loopy.
9:55 am
Vicuna

Or do5/16, perhaps?
9:56 am
Haz1558

I don't think people do geography the way we used to. Or at least, they don't learn capital cities and rough ideas about countries.
9:56 am
Atalante

then she could be a dalmatian :D
9:56 am
Uniquity

Cullybackery...I love google maps. Quite the names. (I was never taught ANY geography. I know our provinces, that is it).
9:57 am
Atalante

I distinctly remember learning about the wheat crops of Saskatchewan in geography
9:57 am
Haz1558

Cullybackey - not far from here! One of my favourite names is in Co Londonderry - Tamlaght O'Crilly.
9:57 am
Vicuna

I had a very poor geographical education, but I got tired of the ignorance and eventually sat down and learned at least the countries on my own.
9:57 am
Haz1558

Or Ballymatoskerty, it has a ring to it.
9:58 am
Uniquity

Balleymoney st!
9:58 am
Vicuna

One of my favorite place names is Throg's Neck. I always imagine a throg to be sort of a long-necked frog.
9:58 am
Haz1558

I know what you mean, Vicuna. I tend to look at an atlas to get my bearings.
9:58 am
Atalante

I like Nebnett Thrubwell
9:59 am
Vicuna

Ooo, me too, Ata.
9:59 am
Haz1558

The Bally in Ballymoney and Ballymena is pronounce Balla, rather than with the y.
9:59 am
Atalante

and I always wanted to live in STrawberry
10:00 am
nancethefan

hey y'all - hugggggggsssssssss
10:00 am

The Bill Bryson book on Australia is fun. An original title 'Down Under'
10:03 am

Bimbi state forest...like Steve Irwin's daughter? Or is she like the place?

You've got to be joking, ruru. Some of them will tell you more than you ever need to know!

*cough*. Secretive...pah.
10:05 am
rururocks

I ... AM... ALWAYS .. joking haz
10:05 am
Vicuna

Haz is right. Many a fact that should definitely have been secret is not.
10:05 am
Atalante

10:05 am

Oh good, ruru!
10:06 am

Okay, dooty calls (as found in the grid to5/16). Back later for more fun and secrets.

i am new to this, what is an icon clue?
10:48 am
bootshoe

this is my third puzzle on babble and i am only 5 words away from finished
10:49 am
kje

bbot - on Fridays, some people change their icons to be a clue for a word in the grid - Kris's icon is a clue...mine is not
10:49 am
KrisE

there's an icon theme each day (listed from Lickety's Babble clues). The theme for this day is to find a word from the grid and put a picture of it in your icon (for pro users who can do icons)
10:49 am
KrisE

Only your 3rd puzzle? You must be very good!
10:51 am
bootshoe

the hardest thing is finding the time to complete the puzzle... i was only about 15 away yesterday when i had to quit.
10:51 am
KrisE

Well, yes, that is a challenge.
10:51 am
kje

yes, yesterday's was long...I may move my limit down from 300 to 250 -
10:51 am

I got within nine yesterday and didn't allot enough time to finihs
10:52 am

I've been doing this a few months, and I always depend on help from good players like Temple Owl, kje, and rururocks! (and others)
10:53 am

if it is more than 300, it just wears me down and I don't really enjoy it by the end
10:53 am
KrisE

I didn't play yesterday - I'd still be working on it if I had.
10:53 am
KrisE

brb
10:54 am
rururocks

yesterday's grid was more challenging because so many of the larger words were similar and hard to keep track of
10:54 am
bootshoe

i hate the four letter words. process of elimination can get you most of them. the fun part is finding the 8 and 9 letter words. using the point numbers and your vocabulary to solve those...
10:54 am

I still haven't bought a car - dreading dealing with the salesman - ugh
