12:23 am
J. C.

I haven't finished any grids in ages, PAV - usually don't have time to. :/ But, I start them anyway - that's why my ranking's in the toilet now. :P
12:23 am

Hmmm . . .
12:25 am
J. C.

Should I ask why? No . . . probably not. :P
12:26 am
Kazozz

JC when your mind is in the gutter..probably appropriate to have your ranking in the toilet?
12:26 am
J. C.

Are you inferring that MY mind is in the gutter, Kaz? ME??? :O Never!!! :P

12:27 am
PAV3

well JC, finishing is a prerequisite for my self-centered egotistical alt-ego...but I do manage to keep my toilets clean...if anyone would care to visit...my kitchen on the other hand could use some work...
12:27 am
Kazozz

mrp has grossed me out
12:27 am
J. C.

No, Kaz - that's because ruru isn't here to polish up my halo for me. He does that, you know - someone has to. :P
12:28 am
Kazozz

<--- pays someone to clean her kitchen and toilets lol
12:28 am
mrpresident

ruuster has his halo in the toilet!
12:28 am

12:28 am

polishing a halo...is that an euphemism? or double entendre?
12:28 am
J. C.

Hmmm, mrp - ruru's is in the toilet, yet he polishes mine?
12:28 am
J. C.

Perhaps I don't want to know what he polishes it with? :P
12:29 am
J. C.

I know - toilet cleaner. :P
12:29 am
mrpresident

well JC... I only call them how I see them! LOL
12:29 am

Oh, sorry Kaz . . . it's always a risk one takes when I'm around, though. :/

6:30 am

They seem to have the internet all locked up in Devon, Rolin. Still, a week without a pc is probably a good thing.
6:31 am

6:32 am
herinfernallady

Oh, and cards and boardgames, and dvds.
6:33 am

nice. We don't do cards or board games
6:33 am

You should, it's a laugh.
6:34 am

And we'll take the Wii. Great fun 'bowling' etc. There's also a mini bowling alley nearby.

Can't play Scrabble with other half as he's dyslexic but we play things like 'Payday', 'Snakes & Ladders', 'Game of Life' etc.

I would love to play scrabble.
6:43 am
Uniquity

Clue is a good one :) I love board games and jigsaw puzzles. Cranium is a favourite as well. We adapt it for a two player game. Also, trivial pursuit 90s edition, as we are young enough to know some of the answers.
6:44 am
Jacula

I like jigsaws, too. Got lots stacked up still to do. I like WAJIG ones and the Jan Van Haasteren ones.
6:45 am
Jacula

Uni - have you got the music edition of TP?
6:45 am
Jacula

*WASJIG
6:45 am
Uniquity

Oh, I have not. That would be one we could do very well at, I think. As for jigsaws, we just do whatever ones have made their way to us. The family sort of recycles them that way.
6:46 am
Jacula

I'll get it right in a minute! WASGIJ (jigsaw backwards) The puzzle is only clued by the pic on the box and is what the person in the pic on the box might be seeing.
6:46 am
Jacula

If that makes sense.
6:47 am
Uniquity

That sounds extra difficult. I think it is cheating to look at the box, so I try not to.

My b.fs family was playing Quiddler but i didn't play as they would have made me feel stupid even if though I would wipe their behinds butt

Ooh, Balderdash is one I love playing with a group of friends. We all do so well at convincing each other weird things.

I love jigsaw puzzles and group games! We played Taboo the other day and always laugh so much with that game. Pictionary is fun too. I don't have Quiddler or Balderdash. Catch Phrase is another fun one for groups.

I have them from time to time--the main problem with instant is that they get so mushy
8:03 am
Scrabbler

I don't know, but I heard of steelcut oa** and wondered what makes them special other than I saw yesterday in the store that they cost more
8:03 am
mom2han8

They are a big treat for me... but they remind me of my childhood... so, once in a while, I buy McAnn's... 4 times the price of regular.
8:03 am

I saw those too, mom2
8:03 am

I recently saw "instant" Irish oats... never tried them... would be afraid... the McAnn's take about 40 minutes, but worth it!

they cost more because they are careful chopped rather than randomly ground

Vegans don't eat honey because they believe it is exploitive of bees. I have to roll my eyes at that one, because bees make honey willingly. It's not like someone is holding a gun to their little bee heads.

Is this the game where where two English-speaking players are shown a sentence in a foreign language that neither of them speak, and are presented with a list of possible meanings (in English) below each word. Players try to agree upon a set of English words that forms the most coherent sentence
11:36 am
redturtlehead

no uc it is not.
11:37 am
ucfalum

Where can I play that game developed by Luis Von Ahn?
11:38 am
Siobhán

No ucfalum. You enter as many words as you can see in the puzzle to the left of this, into the slot that says “Add Word” immediately beneath the puzzle.
11:38 am
Siobhán

No idea, sorry.
11:38 am

Yes it does.
11:43 am
ucfalum

I will, I don't get this game
11:43 am
ucfalum

I am writing words that I see, but I get "rage" does not exist?
11:43 am
ucfalum

Rage or Steep as an example
11:43 am
Siobhán

It’s a word search, ucfalum. You find as many words in the puzzle as you can and enter them below it.
11:43 am
redturtlehead

the lettershave to connect like in Boggle. Rage connect...
11:43 am
ucfalum

ok no P
11:43 am
hootowl

It's like Scrabble. Letters have to connect.
11:43 am
NonoNanette

urge does not connect in the puzzel
11:44 am
ucfalum

ok
11:44 am
Siobhán

Yes, sorry...didn’t explain that fully. The letters have to touch each other in each word.
11:44 am

11:45 am
Siobhán

If you mean any direction, yes.
11:45 am
Siobhán

They have to be in order, though.
11:45 am

11:46 am
redturtlehead

11:46 am
Siobhán

There is one puzzle per day.
11:46 am
Siobhán

Yes, ucfalum...perfect.
11:46 am
redturtlehead

Which is why we dont usually type words we find into chat.
11:46 am
Siobhán

That is one example.
11:46 am

There is an LA word with 7 letters and then an 8 right after it. Chances are, it is a plural of the word before it, so it is often referred to as a combo.
