Puzzle. Jan 11. (Hints) - 01/11/13 02:37 AM

An innocent word daydreams happily. Suddenly, the letter U barges in and sits next to it. The startled word gasps "If I'd have known you were coming...". But alas, too late, its meaning has changed forever."
The question body refers to both the shorter word and to the one with the U attached to it. The letter U may be added either at the start or at the end of the shorter word. The hints do not necessarily surrender the location.

The correct expected answer is the *long* word (i.e. the one with the U attached to it).

Starting off with an easy one:

-1.Two or more males ask for the list of food and drink. 4 letters

-2.A foolishly tender preparation of melted cheese. 5

-3.Wise and generally accepted practice. 5

-4.17 Japanese syllables on an outer garment used in northern Africa. 5

-5.Lifted up the adored. 8

6.A useful brick. 5. u---e

-7.The rear of a south-east Asian native. 5. H---u

-8.In place of untruth. 4

-9.The subject of conversation in an ideally perfect place. 6

-10.For the grand finale, two U's are added.
A humanist African philosophy on the middle part of a sail. (6 letters - also a major distribution of the Linux OS)
