Thread: Guess the word!
                    >>
Ok folks, this is how it works: I post a dictionary definition of a word, you give me the word. If you get it right, you win one of my fantastic home made superspecial precious Woolly Gems, only to be earned here!
So here we go, first definition:
"Someone who is in charge of feeding, cleaning, and taking care of horses."
"Existing as something real or solid, rather than as an idea or something imagined in the mind."
A small woollen ball used as a decoration on garments, especially hats.
Ya beat me to it, Vee!!
The one time in my life I would have actuallly won something!
Ah well.... Well done to you my super-intelligent, amazing, beautiful, caring, chocolate sharing... Chum!
(Ok - you do realise that I'm only after 1/2 of the prize that you get!!! tee hee )
btw - Great thread Tommie
Well, I was actually looking for "pompon", but "bobble" will do fine too, so there ya go Vee, your first Woolly Gem! :wink
So what's this then?
A very small wave or gentle waving movement.
hmmm but it could be a Tsunami?
Good guesses all, but the Woolly Gem goes to Lord Aelric! Ripple was the word I was looking for.
A strong feeling of fondness for another person, especially between members of a family or close friends.
It's an abstract notion that you usually use in connection with one very special person.
Yes, Grondy, you get your Woolly Gem!
"A thing made to be exactly like another"
"Having lived or existed for a long time."
( Tommy: Do you grow your Wooly Gems by planting slightly used lemon drops or wild cherry cough drops in a bed of dust-bunnies or is a more technological procees involved?)
Old is what I was looking for, so another Gem for Stoney!
"Broken pieces of wood, plastic, and other waste materials from a shipwreck floating about together in the sea, or washed up onto the shore."
"What must happen and cannot be changed or controlled."
"A piece of cloth or thin soft paper for drying the nose, eyes, etc."
Ehm. I won't be back again until Saturday, but I'll post a new one anyway. You'll have to wait for the answer then.
"To take in one's breath suddenly and in a way that can be heard, especially because of surprise or shock."
Gasp is the word I was looking for, so a nice Woolly Gem goes over to Lord aelric.
"Time without end."
PS: You won't see me again now before Saturday. Promise. lol
The alpha and the omega...
"Time without end."
*reaches out for Woolly Gem*
*finds basket empty*
*runs to her secret sheep lab*
*uses the secret formula*
*runs back with a full basket*
There ya go, Grond!
"Having an empty space inside"
I know, I know, I broke my promise. Sorry. lol
now to the next question. Maybe i'll get tht one right?
It's a Void?
As English is my native language I also have an unfair advantage over many of our members; however, having grown up in the sticks I don't really know the Queens English. So I often have to resort to my heavy duty, four inch thick, dictionary to check a lot of words I use around the forum. I notice that the muscles on my left side are getting stronger from picking it up from floor on that side of my chair.
Ehm, no it's not a void. I'm looking for an adjective here.
"Facts that make a crime less serious." (two words!)
