    ..I'm wide awake enough to know that I'm annoyed that this time I'm 100% sure I hit submit reply and it told me I'd hit reply twice and to wait before posting again and it would take me back to the board.......so where is my post!!!!!! ARRRRRGGGG so annoying when I take the time to post them only to disappear. Why does it do that to me.

    Ok...edited to say THERE IT IS...never mind! :egyptian::scratch::huh::pOkay

    edited again to look less blonde and let you know what mol is : mol - the molecular weight of a substance expressed in grams; the basic unit of amount of substance adopted under the Systeme International d'Unites

    Wow . . .I have no idea how to break down this word, or what the root word is . . . .but I am guessing 'roost'. Since I don't see something about nest or something, I am going with what I think is the next best thing from what is available. . . . 3. A rooster's breast

    Well Tobyn - I've been looking at the word as well and the only thing I see about roosting is the channels in #4 that the tray sits in...that is kind of like roosting. What does Roost - it have to do with a roosters breast? I don't know anything about Roosters And #2, I think we've had that definition before. # 1 doesn't make sense to me. Are we missing a clue - like the real one?? :biggrin: Just kidding, Seamom. (((HUGS)))

    I just do not have a Clue!! I guess I will pick # 3 as well. Boy, that was a lot to go through just to pick the correct answer. Ha!! :lblue:

    Nothing to do with roosters.....My FIL who was Scottish used this word all the time...often when speaking of farm machinery! It's rusted with a Scottish accent!!!

    #1. Rusted, dry or parched

    Ok - now we need Funnel and Glo-ree-bee to sound in so they can give us their thoughts on this subject. :biggrin:

    OK, so we all got a point each yesterday! Good for us! :doubleup:

    I think Tobyn is playing a trick today, so I will not follow him, even though I think it sounds likely.
    The second most likely alternative is the one Beryl took, and I think I'll go for that. #1 it is! The story about the Scottish FIL convinced me. :biggrin:

    LOL....all very funny again........Corky! Funnel was correct that Tobyn WAS FOOLING (that gives you two points doesn't it with that gambling rule!)...lol... and Corky tried to seduce you all to her own definition about those "trays" without risking on voting for her own and losing a point (what! I don't understand that one.. i need a definition! :p). Now, Beryl gave me rusty as her definition not knowing it was the actual definition!!!So.. been mulling over how to deal with the points. I'm giving her two for getting the right definition ...............but am I going dotty...I could have sworn Funnel voted but I've refreshed over and over again and can't find his answer...I saw him over on Corky's "Private Message" thread saying he wasn't going to follow Tobyn as he thought he was fooling!! lol I could have sworn he'd won a point but picking the correct answer! and Corky, you are correct that he used a former definition, but he did that once before and scored well so you can't blame him! lol

    Okay...I'm losing it so I'll move on and sorry I'm late but last night I was packing up my son and hubby heading out for a baseball weekend and so today I was celebrating early with my Mom for Mother's Day..quite lovely.

    girouettism (jeer-oo-ETT-iz-im)

    1. A French form of twisting pastry

    2. To believe that the world is flat and not round

    3. The practice of cutting one's own throat

    4. The habit of always altering personal beliefs to follow popular trends

    I think there are some good ones to choose from! Enjoy a lovely day!

    Happy Mothers Day Seamom!!!!

    Ok - I love the way you broke it all down for the points for roostit. Are we driving you batty? :biggrin:

    Now, for girouettism (jeer-oo-ETT-iz-im) I am going with:

    3. The practice of cutting one's own throat

    Chirp chirp… here I am seamom! :whistle: :biggrin:

    It always feels so weird to quote myself… but above is my post from yesterday. Did I get a point or give one away? :biggrin:

    My guess for girouettism is #4, this sounds likely enough to be correct (so it’s probably someone’s bluffer :whistle:).

    I’m off for a short cruise to Helsinki for a couple of days but will be back on Wednesday. I'll be missing all the action here!

    Are his posts invisible to me? Did you see one for roostit, Corky and where did you see he's cruising? lol

    seamom Well-Known Member

    AHA~~~~!!!! Our power went off for a split second today and logged me off here so put me in that crazy can't find you mode! I put it back to linear...I really thought thinks were beginning to get squirrelly here!

    Funnel, you did get a point for picking the correct answer..rusty.
  14. Tobyn

    Tobyn Well-Known Member

    I just don't know why you all think I am always trying to pull your leg . . . . . I don't pull legs . . . .I YANK them! ! ! LOL

    Thank you for the points Corky. I couldn't have done it without you!

    For today, I think this word has to do with cutting . . . . . like a politician cutting ideals with the changing polls . . . . 4. The habit of always altering personal beliefs to follow popular trends

  15. Corky

    Corky Well-Known Member

    Seamom - see the above highlighted in purple...he did pick # 1 :doubleup:

    Happy Mom's Day Seamom!!!
  16. Corky

    Corky Well-Known Member

    Tobyn - I liked # 4 as well for girouettism...but figured that # 3...politically speaking, was the same thing as # 4. Ha-ha!!!
  17. Beryl

    Guillotine has to do with cutting so I don't think it's throat cutting. I also don't think it has to do with the idea that the world is flat. The word girouettism reminds me of gyroscope which is twisting and turning to maintain orientation. This leaves the choice of #1 and #4. The pastry is twisted to make it pretty but people change their opinions to "fit in" ... or maintain their orientation with the group. So after all that I am going to follow along with Tobyn and choose #4 and hope he is not "yanking" legs today! :biggrin:

    #4. The habit of always altering personal beliefs to follow popular trends

    And yippee....I get another point because Funnel chose the correct answer to roostit!

    I'm going to miss you Funnel...:whistle:...but have a wonderful trip!
