Nothing still. Sorry, we seem to be down to some of the more difficult ones! Maybe I'll have to modify or add some information if people are still stuck tomorrow ...

I hope you're still having fun though! Keep trying! (Remember, if at first you don't succeed ... hack into it and make it right!) :P;)

Edit for:

Athena, your answer for #13 isn't right, but it *was* one I thought of putting in! :lol:

5) peddle, pedal.

That would be quite correct! :lol:

Edit for: I'll be on a plane for part of today, so pretty please be patient with me if I can't update until this evening! :)

Ha, and for "evening" I meant Left Coast of USA, even though I'll be in the south east. :duh: So for some of you it would definitely be "tonight" ... or tomorrow. :P:blush: Sorry for any confusion! Will update the thread when I am able, thanks for your patience! :)

So to recap again:

Answered: 1, 3, 4, 5 (both), 7, 9, 11, 12

Unanswered: 2, 6, 8, 10, 13, 14, 15

8. Intimate/imitate?

10. Sorry/sorrow!

13. Grievous/egregious?

14. Intimate/imminent?

For 12, I had to use an online dictionary to find a definition of "booby" that wasn't blue-footed. Turns out it can also mean a stupid person. That would've been very ironic had it's definition been "an ignorant person."

My guess for 12: Crass/class?

My own mini riddle for you!

13 modified: He ______ took offense at such ______ actions

Surely/Surly

Some good guesses, but so far nothing else correct. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have some new re-writes for some fresh perspectives! :)

8. As we were talking, I may have ______ that I would like some ice cream, but he was unable to ______ my meaning.

10. They did not break up amicably, and even though he tended to be horrid to her afterwards, she was ______ to ______ him. She was too nice.

13. Such unpleasant, ______ actions were taken that the people objected and took ______ offense.
