Some days I feel like I keep on giving and givng such gifts and what thanks do I get from others??? lol
Thanks for QUANTIZES, lalatan!

Wasn't able to finish typing NONBIODEGRADABLE as the clock ran out. The longest I got on that board was 9 letters.

Nice find. You went from despair to joy in a matter of minutes. And you had another theme day too.

Rats! I just typed all but the last 2 letters of EXTRAVAGANTNESSES when the timer ran out. Pmoffit had already found it ... 34 points lost to slow fingers and slower brain.

That's rough but you'll get the next one. I was playing a board on my phone and so far had gotten only GRAPINESSES for 22 pts. Then I saw APPROPRIATENESSES but couldn't figure out the swipe path with all those p's clustered together before time expired. I got a little upset but not too much. I must finally be mellowing out a little. lol
