Note to ExitRamp, Iamwhoiam, and anyone else interested:

Back in September, I dropped following some of the games I had been playing, including this one. For several cycles of these games, it was just me and critic playing a couple of 4 letter and 5 letter games. She suggested dropping some of the shorter word games, and adding some longer word games. So I decided to eliminate this 4 letter game and a 5 letter game I'd been playing.

So I took them out of my favorites list, and haven't been back since.

Subsequently, she posted a guess, as it had been my turn to run the game. That was back on Sept 4. It was no longer on my favorites list, so I didn't respond. ExitRamp found the game more than a month later and posted a guess. IamWhoIam returned to playing these games and also posted a guess a few days later. ExitRamp tried another guess on Oct 15th.

At this point, I don't have a clue as to what word I had in mind back in September, and I'm not going to play this game anyway. If ExitRamp wants to take over, please do so.

The only 4 letter game I'm planing not is * 4* FOUR * 4 *

I think that if I had a pet bird that was an E R N E , it would be mandatory to name it E R N I E .

Anyway, my pets are 11 yr old red slider turtles named Bunny and Oscar. They don't fly around much.

You were lucky to get your power back so quickly. When we lose power at my office, they bring in HUGE backup generators and it takes WEEKS before we're back on normal power.

The color is neutral, but the name "ECRU" sucks. It's so much easier to use pleasant color names, like "peach" and "rose". Even "orange" rolls off the tongue easier than the harsh "ecru". That sounds like a medieval torture devise... "Put him on the ECRU and crank it until his joints crack!"
