We all had a conversation about this one and came up with multiple answers, so SOMEBODY is going to get points! ! ! Gavin and I chose 2. Lack of interest in former loved ones (Maybe its a guy thing), KT chose 1. A mosaic flooring in ancient Crete, and Bread said she thinks it is 3. A pigment used for exterior oil paint.

Soooooooooo, who is getting the points?

Yes I got a point... what?... yes, the day before I left for my cruise of course (but that was old news... :biggrin:)!

Congrats to Corky and Seamom for their 2 points yesterday and also to Tobyn for 1 point!
I wonder if it ever has happened that you have got no points at all Tobyn? :scratch: Probably not!

Over to asymtotically.
It can be a mathematical function and it will finally reach infinity as it will never "stop" due to that it will getting closer but never quite meet. Tricky as there are two definitions that can be true.
I have to decide one of them and not choose Tobyn's. :biggrin:

I will actually agree with Tobyn today, #4. I cross my fingers... :whistle:

Heeee's back...woohoo.... Corky may be pleased, because she keeps choosing my answers! One for me......and one for Tobyn and Funnel for picking the correct answer...and KT

Now for snoove! Don't you love that word?

SNOOV

1. To borrow things and not return them

2. Ever slowly onward

3. A dance move

4. An inward vacuum-like snore

What's it gonna be, bring it ooooonnnn!
 

Tobyn

After much discussion in our house . . . . We again have a mixed decision. Bread and KT both pick 3. A dance move, but Gavin says 2. Ever slowly onward. I think the guys have to stick together so I'll join Gavin and take #2.

What say you Erik? Join the guys, join the ladies, or go your own way ? ? ? ?

Slowly and quietly ... like a "sn"ake in the grass moves...I choose..

#2. Ever slowly onward

Welcome back Funnel! I've been missing in action here too but it was nothing so fun as a cruise! :biggrin:
 

Funnel

Yes, another point! :banana:
A good start efter my very looooong absence... :biggrin:

Beryl, welcome back to you too!

Corky, are you sure... :whistle:

Well Tobyn, I think I'll join you in #2 for todays word. I will think hard before going independent again!

That drummer, Corky, led you to Funnel's definition....yes, Beryl, Funnel, and Tobyn got a point for choosing correctly. So Funnel...welcome back with your two points.

Now for zopissa (zo-PISS-a)

1. The term given to animal statuary used in gardens

2. A medicinal ointment made from the pitch scraped from old ships

3. A gardening tool used for removing weeds

4. The form used to make dental molding

5. Euphemism for skunk fur

Now that's a tricky one! And Beryl, of course we miss you when you are gone...you just pop in and out more often! Haven't seen Glo-ree-bee lately..... now why doesn't anyone else join in! We're all fun here!

Everyone is missed!! Beryl, nice to see you back. Funnel, you too. Where are Glo-ree-bee and Red Strip?

Well everyone, Funnels back so he's getting my points. :bigsmile:

For zopissa - man, those are some tough definitions to pick from. Tough!! And what I want to know is, why isn't anyone picking my def? :hammer: Every day I have Den read the word and the def's, and every day he picks mine. In fact, he just did it again for zopissa. Weird!!!

Anyway - for zopissa I am going to have to sleep on it. Ha!!!
 

Tobyn

So I have to be first again heh? Okay, here is our take on this. . . . .

Starting with 'zo' leads me to believe it has something to do with animals. Beryl seems awful sure it is not skunk fur, so that leaves 1. The term given to animal statuary used in gardens which is what Bread and I will take.

Gavin says he thinks it is 2. A medicinal ointment made from the pitch scraped from old ships.

KT says 4. The form used to make dental molding

So again, SOMEONE is going to get some points from us today!

Mornin' Balderdashers!!

Tobyn - thank goodness you have a family of 4 is what I say!!

Now for zopissa (zo-PISS-a) - well, I guess everything has to have a definition, although, in America, I've never heard of either of these words...so, I will pick....

1. The term given to animal statuary used in gardens

Right...I slept on it! When I was a kid there was this awful ointment that your Mom would spread on you if you got a rash or had a bit of eczema or any kind of minor skin ailment. It smelled like tar and was thick and sticky enough to have come off an old ship! I have decided to go with the most unlikely of the definitions (other than the skunk fur one!) and go with .....

#2. A medicinal ointment made from the pitch scraped from old ships
