wont: adj. meaning accustomed or usual.

montyb on 2012-12-16 19:14:24
The company I keep is the cryptophiles of this site. Should I be concerned?

wvwoman on 2013-08-07 11:29:19
yes, montyb, very!

joma1944 on 2014-01-16 06:20:22
Monty, drop the cryptogram and slowly walk way.

montyb on 2014-08-07 15:23:49
I can't! I can't drop it! I need an intervention!

marnita on 2015-11-21 13:54:03
Well, you're not likely to get any help from us, Monty. We are all in the same boat. Birds of a feather . . . .

this one is so sweet that i couldn't resist giving it extra exposure:

He did a wonderful job proving that with his "On The Road" stories. They were always thoughtful and heart-warming.

opallady on 2013-04-06 22:39:35
Thumbs up.

abra on 2014-06-06 15:53:43
He was wonderful. He always left you feeling good.

He had a beautiful vision for his message as a journalist, and he completely fulfilled it. Great American, in the truest sense.

I guess I spiked the bell-curve by forgetting I had this open!

haverwench on 2010-08-14 02:21:38
And also sex. Oh wait, I guess that comes under "interest."

pootie49 on 2011-06-13 12:39:37
I actually thought that meant moving men as in men who move and pack stuff for you...LOL. I would have added no money levers them. Jeesh. and Doy.

bansaisequoia on 2012-03-08 20:13:31
Laurence Olivier and Nicol Williamson are moving men when they perform Hamlet. Oh, wait. That's not what they meant, either.

abra on 2013-07-16 21:01:53
I thought what Pootie thought. Miss, you Donna.

jnoodles on 2013-07-21 01:46:11
food and sex....or sex and food......or sex then food......or TV then sex then food

universalmom on 2014-01-21 14:10:20
The food should come first

universalmom on 2014-06-15 16:16:53
(wow I must have been really hungry when I wrote that…!)

universalmom on 2014-08-28 14:45:34
…also, I wonder where all those odd characters come from??

wvwoman on 2014-09-05 12:34:00
i wonder the same thing about those characters, u-mom!

abra on 2015-05-09 11:55:13
I know there's a thread in the forum about them. I'm always thinking I should go back to try to find it. I don't remember what it said. http://www.cryptograms.org/forum/sho...hlight=symbols Pootie posted a way to fix it. I'm going to try it.

what do I do with the points?

kb77 on 2011-09-25 19:14:12
it travels faster than brain waves also it seems.

LLapp on 2014-12-16 14:21:07
wnt2ply: Nothing! I consider points an embarrassment because they show how much time I've frittered away at puzzle-solving.

skoogie2 on 2014-12-21 02:35:01
au contraire, llapp, it's time well spent and to be celebrated as brain work time!

Highpoint on 2015-02-24 12:32:12
Are the points redeemable for cash?

abra on 2015-05-17 14:58:12
Haven't you all been cashing in your points?

"A hallucination is a fact, not an error; what is erroneous is a judgment based upon it." — Bertrand Russell

torn88 on 2011-12-23 18:04:51
Judgement ... missing e?

universalmom on 2012-07-01 16:23:05
Oddly, judgement is the British spelling - which you'd expect, since Mr. Russell is British.

jnoodles on 2013-05-08 19:27:37
Shouldn't it be "an" hallucination? A just sounds wrong to me.

chopstix on 2014-03-13 05:53:24
whoa - did you just see that?

Let's all go to the lobby to get some 7-Up.

locodad on 2013-04-01 02:10:17
I don't think they sell 7-UP in the theater, Maybe they should,because the sodas would be much less expensive

abra on 2015-04-18 10:47:39
My life was a million, too. Or maybe an intermillion.

This seems one of those that sacrifice meaning for quotability. sigh

No way. I'm an iconoclast who struts to the beat of a different drummer.

And I'm a by-the-books government agent. Due to a clerical error, we wind up being roommates. Wackiness ensues! It's G-Man and the Rebel. Only on CBS.
