Only if you're Bob or Greg. Greg? Where IS Greg? For that matter, where's Stella?

I am bad, am I not? Geez - it has been quite awhile. In my defense, I was traveling for work and then got back and right away had Thanksgiving and guests that stayed a week. Then as soon as I got back to work, we had a delegation from Kazakhstan here for three days - so I've been running nine ways from Sunday! (BTW that was one of my first questions on WC - where that phrase came from. I have still not found the answer.)

Posting it now - and again, I apologize for the extensive delay.

And here they are. As you can see, some of them are fairly similar. Please make your choices here in the thread:

1) The process by which a plant becomes carnivorous.

2) Transcribing a prescription from shorthand to longhand.

3) When a forum takes an abrupt turn becoming something not originally intended.

4) An object or feature that imitates the design of a similar artifact made from another material.

5) A type of insect that changes its colors to fit in with its environment.

6) Something changed for the worse.

7) Someone shaped like a wine bottle.

8) A shape-shifter.

9) Illegally changing barcodes to defraud retailers.

10) Color-changer, like a chameleon.

11) Mid-period Mesopotamian writing system.

12) The process of turning something worthwhile into something worthless.

13) A marking or code assigned to a consumer product, that identifies it by item and manufacturer and permits it to be processed automatically by widely-available technology.

I have no idea. #4 is unlike others so I'll guess that that's it.

I would choose 10 ... if only 5 wasn't there too.

Oh well. It's free; I'll take 10 anyway.

Wouldn't be the first time I chose something, even though I suspected it wasn't right.

No idea, though I can definitely rule out my own Wink

I'll take 13

I think I am going to go with Bob, and go with 13. My runner-up is 4.

And they say tomorrow never comes!

I'll pick 3. If that's not what it is, it should be, because that's exactly what happens here so often. We begin by talking about one thing and suddenly skew to the right or left and end up somewhere else.

Don't worry about it, Kalleh. I'm just competing with Geoff for Grouch of the Month. I'm ahead.

Here are the answers to this very long game. Thanks for your patience!

#1 - Sattva
#2 - Sattva
#3 - Sattva - chosen by Tinman
#4 - THE REAL ANSWER - Geoff
#5 - Kalleh
#6 - Arnie
#7 - Geoff
#8 - Geoff
#9 - Proof - chosen by Proof, thanks to Kalleh's delay (sorry about that!)
#10 -Hab - chosen by Hab, again, thanks to Kalleh's delay
#11 -Bob
#12 -Bob
#13 -Hab - chosen by Bob & Sattva (her runner-up was the correct definition!)

I know that arnie would have chosen the correct definition as he told me. Thanks all for playing - and waiting for me. Roll Eyes Who has a good word for the next game?

4) An object or feature that imitates the design of a similar artifact made from another material.
...like the "copies in glass and concrete of copies in plaster of copies in wood of copies in stone" in The Fountainhead (of all places).


As for Next Word - I just came across DECANAL - is that sufficiently obscure and misleading for our purposes? If too many people know it (arnie, you don't count, in this particular tally) I'll withdraw it.
