Prop forward? Not too hopeful on this one, but I had to know one way or the other!

yeah, not it but maybe no worse than mine. This is the most obscure one. Ironically, it was the first one I came up with.

Here's an alternative clue for this one - Instant Location

Past History ?

you got me dead to rights. good stuff t_l.

that's it - first rate - efpy

too lazy to spoiler this but for any others interested, the place bit above - as in second in a horserace. dont think the synonymity of the others is as obscure.

Portion Control ?

not it t_l

Like fabio, I keep trying

Green Bean

or something similar. (But I just can't *quite* agree with the synonymity, culinarily speaking.)

Green Lawn, Green Plant ?

well you're not all wrong with the culinary idea. at least not as wrong as me. flubbed this one

here's an aternate (hopefully better) clue - Raw Fruit

Green: Produce, Growth, Spring, Cash ... ?

(Me thinks I've been staring at this too long. :dry: )

of all the ones to look too long at. still not what I have in mind. though mine barely deserves no nevermind, mind you.

dont think the intended meaning of the first word in the answer has been hit upon yet. now that should throw you off.

My attempts on some...

Jealous Nut = Green Stone (jade)

Part Proof = Half Right

Waste Away = Drain Down

Expired Account = Bad Debt

I get the connections you've made between the words of your answers but think the intended are more directly synonomous. will say what you have parenthetically in the first one spoiler above could be similar in a very general sense? and do like how maybe you interpretted the second word of the second spoiler above as a verb (small hint)

Crazy Californian ?

;):P

well, am not familair with that one. if you can further substantiate, will accept it. :lol:

jealous nut / raw fruit

Base Camp

At the risk of appearing a bit dim - I don't follow this connection at all.

Help a bear of little brain please

jealous <--> base as in bitter or meanspirited

raw <--> base as in forming the basis for more often like inate or a priori as in base/raw emotions

nut(ty) <--> camp as in different typically in an affected, over the top, ostentatious kind of way

fruit(y) <--> camp as in effeminate

and base <--> camp as in home away from home especially re military living or as in vulgar

Hehe, this is a bit deep for me plainglazed - I think I must be just paddling at the shallow end of the gene pool :D
