mab

In general it has been my observation that americans off the u.s. are anti-intellectual. Many resent intelligence. Look at poor old John Kerry and his run ffor the pres.
12:00 am
hurshy

yes...but even admiration is problematic
12:01 am
hurshy

there's just no good response to compliments!
12:01 am
Atalante

just smile modestly :P
12:01 am
mab

Oh, just say 'thank you.'
12:02 am
hurshy

even saying thank you almost feels arrogant to me
12:02 am
hurshy

but my therapist also tells me that is what to say.
12:03 am
Babbler

hi guys : ) hursh, just say thank you
12:03 am
mab

Ok. 'Thank you for saying that.' how's that?
12:03 am
hurshy

hi babbler
12:03 am
hurshy

i have been trying to say thank you.
12:03 am
mab

Babs!!
12:03 am
hurshy

sometimes i do *blush*
12:04 am
Babbler

hi Mab! :D
12:04 am
Atalante

so do I!
12:04 am
hurshy

but then i worry that it comes off as false modesty
12:04 am
Babbler

hi Ata :D
12:04 am
hurshy

i am never offended myself, but always paranoid about offending others
12:04 am
hurshy

babbledy babbledy babbler
12:04 am
hurshy

is that a purple sheep?
12:05 am
Babbler

lol!! no it's a purple monster!! it says "aarrrr, arrr, arrr, squeeeek" underneath!
12:05 am
Atalante

Hi Babs :)
12:05 am
mab

You can't predict or control how others respond. You can accept yourself in all your glory, and no blushing.
12:05 am
hurshy

a very cute monster :)
12:06 am
hurshy

*squirms at mab's advice*... guess that's why i'm in therapy
12:06 am
Babbler

it's cute to blush, hursh, I wouldn't worry about that. I understand you might squirm with embarrassment when you get fantastic compliments, but that's how it is when you're blessed with something.
12:06 am
Babbler

accept what you're blessed with! : D
12:06 am
hurshy

but don't people know that compliments make you feel funny???
12:06 am
mab

yes!
12:07 am
hurshy

when i give them i mostly try to be brief and matter of fact and not make too big a deal out of it.
12:07 am
Babbler

then learn to accept a compliment too! : D
12:07 am
hurshy

well i'm working on it...
12:08 am
Babbler

it's a lovely thing to give and receive a compliment. They don't come every day. : )
12:08 am
Babbler

(not that I don't squirm with embarrassment whenever I get one! LOL!)
12:09 am
hurshy

there are different kinds though
12:09 am
mab

Well said, Babs.
12:09 am
hurshy

like if i said, "i like you, babbler"
12:09 am
Babbler

thanks : )
12:09 am
hurshy

that is fine.
12:09 am
hurshy

or "well said, babs"
12:09 am
hurshy

also fine
12:09 am
mab

Oh yes. I actually argue with the complimenter and try to prove to them they are wrong!
12:09 am
hurshy

but when people say, "i'm lost in admiration of your brilliance", that is too much
12:10 am
Babbler

heh, me too, Mab!
12:10 am
hurshy

me too :)
12:10 am
Babbler

LOL!! oh hursh, if only someone said something so fantastic to me!! That's a wonderful compliment!
12:10 am
hurshy

but it's the squirmy kind!!!
12:10 am
Babbler

heh, it sure is, hursh, I see your point
12:11 am
hurshy

one thing i liked about joelgee was that to show his appreciation for a good joke he would respond with another... that is the best kind of compliment
12:11 am
mab

Just say 'Feel free to bask in my radiance'
12:11 am
Babbler

I miss joelgee
12:11 am
hurshy

!!
12:11 am
Babbler

LOL!! nice one, Mab!
12:12 am
Atalante

just say "feel free to call me sprite" :P
12:12 am
hurshy

!!
12:12 am
hurshy

hurshy canNOT say these things
12:12 am
hurshy

what if people took it seriously?
12:12 am
Babbler

then hurshy had better start learning! lol
12:12 am
Babbler

nah!
12:13 am
mab

Or 'yeah, well, I'm not as brilliant as Einstein' (even though that's probably not true)
12:13 am
mab

I kid
12:13 am
Babbler

or say "I don't know everything.... yet"
12:14 am
hurshy

i used that one earlier this evening, mab!
12:14 am
hurshy

oh babbler, my dad has a pin that says, "those who think they know it all really annoy those of us who do"
12:15 am
Babbler

LOL!! that's good, hursh!
12:15 am
Lamancha

Morning All - and I'm afraid goodbye - todays is easy easy.
12:15 am
Babbler

12:15 am
hurshy

hi :)
12:17 am
hurshy

12:18 am
hurshy

12:21 am
hurshy

*lonely*
12:21 am
Babbler

12:21 am
hurshy

12:21 am

12:23 am
mab

12:23 am
Babbler

((((mab)))) sleep well : )
12:23 am
Atalante

12:24 am
hurshy

((((mab))))
12:25 am
hurshy

i love you friendses. you are vewy nice.
12:26 am
hurshy

ACK, since when is sikh not a word?
12:31 am
Babbler

k, time for me to go too. (((ata))), (((hursh))) : )
12:31 am
Atalante

night!
12:32 am
hurshy

(((babbler)))
12:33 am
hurshy

hmmmph
12:36 am
hurshy

before at flips, bj hadn't put up stats yet
12:37 am
hurshy

so i didn't feel bad taking clues for long ones cause i knew people just found em
12:37 am
hurshy

now people are using the list right away!
12:38 am
Atalante

list is for emergencies!
12:38 am
hurshy

i know, and luckily i found one of the 7's before anyone posted
12:39 am
hurshy

and the other i def would have found pretty quickly
12:39 am
hurshy

i shut the log now.
12:39 am
Atalante

good idea - at least for a little bit!
12:41 am
hurshy

my system since you've been gone is thus
12:41 am
hurshy

i find at least half before even looking at stats panel
12:41 am
hurshy

and i keep log shut until i have like 90% of the words
12:43 am
Atalante

it depends who is on as to whether I have the log on or not. if there's people like you and sprite and haz, I'll keep it open just not really look at the clues
12:44 am
hurshy

yes or if people are chatting not about clues
12:44 am
hurshy

the goal is to collect the people we want to chat with in IM
12:45 am
Atalante

yes!
12:45 am
hurshy

pretty light grid today
12:50 am
Atalante

and that was a cuuute little sudoku grid
12:50 am
hurshy

:)
12:51 am
hurshy

my new goal is getting mediums with no marking
12:51 am
Atalante

*runs to the archives*
12:57 am
hurshy

12:58 am
Atalante

12:59 am
hurshy

1:03 am
SeedyV

1:19 am
Krys10

1:20 am
Atalante

1:20 am

Hey Ginger :) How are you doing?
3:01 am
GingerUK

not bad thanks... it's raining today... I only got half my grass cut yesterday!
3:02 am
GingerUK

you?
3:03 am
sprite

Weather is getting more Springlike here, which works miracles for my feeling of wellbeing, lol. Looking forward to a day without many "must-do's" for a change. So I am well today :)
3:04 am
GingerUK

that's great... I know what you mean about the feelings of wellbeing, I am seasonally affected. We have had some sun so I am begining to liven up!
3:05 am
sprite

I love the seasons, but Winter is long and dark. The older I get, the more I feel it's too long and I am in need of more light, sun and warmth before Mother Nature is good and ready ;)
3:08 am
Atalante

hi sprite! :) hi ginger!
3:09 am
sprite

Atalante hi :) Great to see you!
3:09 am

Morning MaW
3:09 am
Atalante

I'm going back through the archives in the middle of the Californian night :)
3:10 am
sprite

And having a very pleasant time, I am sure :)
It's nice that doing an archived puzzle doesn't interfere with chatting on today's chatlog.
3:12 am
Atalante

having a wonderful time! we're driving up to Oregon tomorrow morning for the next week, then back to boring, cold old England ...
3:14 am
MaW

it's not cold! It was a lovely day in London yesterday
3:14 am
MaW

Although I must admit that Nottingham this morning looks rather dull
3:14 am
Atalante

was it? cool! I mean warm!
3:14 am
GingerUK

Hi Atlante and MaW
3:15 am
sprite

Things are lightening up slowly now. Are you enjoying your trip, Atalante?
3:16 am
Atalante

I really am! Its been wonderful so far. We drove up to Yosemite for 3 days and just spent the time walking and watching the wildlife, and the rest of the time, I've just been with my friends, going to various local places and just spending quality time together. Quality time is all too rare with transAtlantic friendships!
3:17 am
sprite

So true! And if I remember correctly, you are visiting bridges too, right? Can we look forward to a photo reportage? :)
3:18 am
Atalante

loads and loads of photos! you'll probably be sick of them LOL. Bridges yes, and even volcanoes - we're hopefully going to Mt St Helens in a few days
3:19 am
MaW

Woo! done the puzzle too. Perhaps lack of sleep contributes to ability... time for breakfast!
3:20 am
sprite

Ooooooh! Vulcano's! I have been fascinated by them from my very early childhood days. My father was a sailor when he was young and he has seen an eruption from see. I believe it was the Stromboli.
I hope you make the pics available for babblers too :)
3:20 am
sprite

And WTG MaW! Enjoy your breakfast :)
3:23 am

6:42 pm
LeslieAnn

6:42 pm
LeslieAnn

it's getting better again, at the beginning of the 2nd season it was kind of boring
6:43 pm
hurshy

DH? boring?
6:43 pm
hurshy

i didn't notice that
6:44 pm
LeslieAnn

well, after you figured out what happened to mary alice there was no big mystery
6:44 pm
hurshy

but there was lots else going on
6:44 pm
hurshy

6:44 pm

6:45 pm

6:45 pm

6:46 pm
hurshy

6:47 pm
hurshy

hi blue
6:47 pm
LeslieAnn

hey, we're not judging here, ok?
6:47 pm
blueskies29

hey hursh
6:47 pm
hurshy

you see, the distinction is this: DH is a well-written, well-put together show... charmed isn't even GOOD, but i can't help watching. i am SO glad this is the last season so i will be free!
6:48 pm
blueskies29

of course not...i don't think it's even possible to defend my obsession with amazing race or survivor
6:48 pm
hurshy

hmmm...reality tv bores me, in the main
6:48 pm
LeslieAnn

blue! i looooove the amazing race (and i'm keeping up with survivor too)
6:49 pm
blueskies29

i hope the hippies win!!
6:49 pm
LeslieAnn

for real, although i would be ok with ray and yolanda too... just not the other two
6:49 pm
blueskies29

what..mojo? or the frat brats?
6:49 pm
LeslieAnn

both, but especially mojo. they bother me.
6:50 pm
blueskies29

yeah...whiney AND b**chy..not a good combo...;)
6:51 pm
LeslieAnn

i was sad fran and barry got cut, but i'm glad they got to win a leg first
6:51 pm
blueskies29

i was amazed they hung in there so long.....
6:51 pm
LeslieAnn

they were some tough old people!
6:52 pm
blueskies29

i don't think i'll be bungee jumping in my sixties...
6:52 pm
hurshy

are either of you heloise-ish? ask in good housekeeping's heloise with her household hints?
6:52 pm
LeslieAnn

hahahahaha.... no.
6:53 pm
blueskies29

why?
6:53 pm
hurshy

because...because...my slippers are a getting a little smelly and i want to know how to de-smellify them
6:53 pm
blueskies29

they can't be washed?
6:54 pm
hurshy

i don't know - the insides are so soft and sometimes like with really soft stuffed animals if you wash them they are never so soft again
6:55 pm
blueskies29

true....and if they are the soft padded ones...the padding blows up like a balloon and they never get their shape back ....
6:55 pm
blueskies29

you could try a couple of things..if you want to invest in a home drycleaning kit........
6:55 pm
hurshy

no... they are the kind with really hard bottoms so you can wear them outside even
6:56 pm
blueskies29

aahhh simplest thing is febreeze......
6:56 pm
hurshy

i have that!
6:56 pm
hurshy

here is what kind they are: http://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/374,77492_
Acorn-Chinchilla-Booties-For-Women.html
6:57 pm
hurshy

maybe i should just buy a new pair, they are cheaper now than when i first bought them
6:58 pm
hurshy

it's a closeout they must be discontinuing them
6:58 pm
hurshy

all they have now is navy there...pah...i like brown
6:58 pm
hurshy

maybe another website
6:59 pm
hurshy

hmm other websites are not as cheap
7:00 pm
blueskies29

i'd say try the febreeze maybe...foot powders will clump in the hair i'd think......although, chinchillas clean by taking a dust bath...........
7:00 pm
hurshy

oh well it is time for charmed...i will think of you as i watch, blue...resume your reality discussion (it's fake chinchilla fur)
7:00 pm
blueskies29

lol enjoy your show hurshy1
7:00 pm
