[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:00:13 PM] <DesertRose> KK! Hi!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:00:14 PM] <Evie> sounds good, Sarah
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:00:15 PM] <Sarah> Welcome, KK
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:00:16 PM] <Evie> Hi, KK
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:00:19 PM] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:00:21 PM] <KK> Hello, all!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:00:29 PM] <Shiral> Hello Katherine
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:01:01 PM] <KK> Found your condo, Shiral?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:01:09 PM] <Shiral> help yourself to the Bastille Day Tea Goodies--crème puffs and fruit tarts
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:01:17 PM] <Shiral> And no, no condo, yet.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:01:18 PM] <KK> Yum!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:01:31 PM] <KK> This must be really wearing you out.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:01:55 PM] <Shiral> Lots of places that are almost right but....I really have a terrible time making decisions
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:02:24 PM] <Shiral> I'm wondering if my agent is asking herself "Why did I encourage her to be picky?"
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:02:29 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:02:36 PM] <Evie> lol
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:02:49 PM] <KK> You do understand that thre will never be a place that's exactly, exactly right....
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:03:03 PM] <Shiral> I took the weekend off. I feel like I'm seeing minute variations on about the same 3 places
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:03:09 PM] <DesertRose> Short of winning the lottery and being able to have a place custom built. :P
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:03:24 PM] <Shiral> I know. That's why I'm having a hard time deciding
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:03:56 PM] <Shiral> I'm not so much looking for "perfect" as I am looking for that moment of "I'm home."

[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:04:10 PM] <Shiral> Hi Bee
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:04:12 PM] <KK> I know the feeling you're looking for.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:04:17 PM] <jemler> hi bee
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:04:28 PM] <the_Bee> Hi all
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:05:00 PM] <the_Bee> what feeling that who's looking for?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:05:12 PM] <Shiral> I'm thinking a nice little manor house with a knot garden near Rhemuth would work well...

[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:05:43 PM] <Evie> I'd like that too, Shiral
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:05:44 PM] <Evie> and wb
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:05:46 PM] <the_Bee> but your time-machine-Portal is mal functioning...
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:05:48 PM] <Shiral> Dang dang dang
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:05:55 PM] <KK> Yes, that woud probably do the trick.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:06:08 PM] <Shiral> all in all, I might have an easier time finding a penthouse in Manhattan
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:06:34 PM] <the_Bee> Have you been outbid for more places?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:06:49 PM] <Shiral> I haven't even found a place I've liked well enough to bid on since May
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:07:09 PM] <Evie> Tre-Arilan is a manor house not all that far outside Rhemuth, IIRC, though Jamyl's descendants might not be willing to sell or rent it out.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:07:19 PM] <the_Bee> What are your minimum requirements?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:07:35 PM] <Shiral> Eh, I'd rather rent Morganhall!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:08:21 PM] <the_Bee> so you can look for a lost Portal?

[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:08:38 PM] <Shiral> It has to have good cross ventilation, a patio, a better kitchen than my apartment kitchen, and when I step out my front door, I want to be inside, vs stepping out into a common hall way.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:08:42 PM] <Shiral> Hi CM
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:08:44 PM] <the_Bee> Hi CM
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:08:48 PM] <Evie> hi CM
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:08:53 PM] <cynicalmedic> Evening, all.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:09:10 PM] <Shiral> The Arilans would probably view me as a rogue Deryni, too
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:09:11 PM] <the_Bee> Are you on call today?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:09:32 PM] <cynicalmedic> Always - being an officer has it's disadvantages
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:09:36 PM] <Shiral> That is when I step out my front door, I want to be outside, rather than in a common hall way
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:09:59 PM] <Evie> I wondered how stepping out to the indoors that wasn't a common hallway was going to work out for you.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:10:13 PM] <Shiral> Oh, and daylight. I like morning exposure
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:10:26 PM] <Shiral> Rented fingers strike again
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:11:05 PM] <Evie> You may want to make a checklist of features you want, and then prioritize them, and then look for apartments that satisfy your most important requirements even if they don't satisfy all of them.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:11:12 PM] <Shiral> AND I want a full-size bathtub. I've had a bathtub only a hobbit could use for years
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:11:41 PM] <Shiral> Done that, Evie. I'm just jaded and overwhelmed at this point.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:11:45 PM] <KK> That's one that wouldn't bother me at all. Never take baths, always showers.

[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:12:15 PM] <the_Bee> Hi mib
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:12:16 PM] <Evie> I only have a shower in my bath, but there are days when I long for a long soak in a bubble bath like I used to enjoy in my former house.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:12:17 PM] <Shiral> Fortunately, most places have at least one full-sized tub
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:12:20 PM] <bynw> one of my biggest things is i would like to have a gas stove rather than an electric one

[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:12:38 PM] <Shiral> I want to have the OPTION of a bubble bath, even if I take showers most of the time
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:12:40 PM] <jemler> hi jerusha
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:12:41 PM] <Evie> Hi, Jerusha
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:12:42 PM] <the_Bee> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:12:43 PM] <Shiral> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:12:51 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Everyone!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:12:58 PM] <cynicalmedic> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:12:59 PM] <Evie> Some things might be things you could get later on, if they don't come with the place
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:13:25 PM] <Evie> Kitchens, for instance, can be improved on later if they're not exactly what you are hoping for when you first move in
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:13:29 PM] <Jerusha> Do you have a potential condo, Shiral?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:13:32 PM] <Shiral> I was feeling so overloaded and confused this week, I just decided to take the weekend off
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:13:40 PM] <Evie> or a bath might be able to be modified
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:13:46 PM] <Shiral> Not at this time, Jerusha
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:13:56 PM] <Jerusha> Drat
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:14:23 PM] <cynicalmedic> When we were looking for a house, we had three requirements - a fence for the dogs, off street parking, and central air. The rest could be upgraded at our leisure
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:14:40 PM] <the_Bee> I've been hearing about how the housing market has been more active lately--with pifalls for buyer and seller alike.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:14:42 PM] <bynw> central air would be nice too
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:15:10 PM] <Shiral> The full bath is actually pretty standard at most places I've seen. It's actually pretty rare to find a place that doesn't have one. I just get myself into these terrible states of indecision. One thing I don't have in this local market is the luxury of thinking time, because things sell in less than a week.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:15:17 PM] <jemler> did any of you see the movie Dogma?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:15:29 PM] <cynicalmedic> My husband is from the Pacific Northwest - even after fifteen years, Maryland summers make him uncomfortable.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:15:43 PM] <jemler> too dry?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:15:53 PM] <KK> Saw Dogma. Good movie!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:16:11 PM] <the_Bee> What's it about?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:16:14 PM] <jemler> the demon Azazel talking about the sin of central air.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:16:21 PM] <Jerusha> When you find the right place, Shiral, you won't feed indecisive
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:16:21 PM] <cynicalmedic> too humid - today the dewpoints are in the seventies - we've had lots of heat related calls.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:16:36 PM] <jemler> a woman has to stop 2 angel from entering heaven.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:16:43 PM] <the_Bee> We're in for hot and humid this week.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:16:44 PM] <DesertRose> Hi CM, Jerusha, and wb Shiral. Sorry, I stepped AFK for a few.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:17:00 PM] <cynicalmedic> Hi DR - how are you?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:17:07 PM] <Jerusha> Hi DR
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:17:07 PM] <DesertRose> Doing all right.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:17:11 PM] <Shiral> I know. Jerusha. I just find a lot of places that are ALMOST right, and wonder if that's as good as it gets, or if I need to hold out longer.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:17:36 PM] <KK> Give us an example of something that's almost right.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:17:39 PM] <the_Bee> Don't hold out TOO long.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:18:10 PM] <Evie> Get a place that's "almost right" and then you can modify it to suit you later
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:18:33 PM] <Shiral> Saw a place that had that central hall way entrance and a pretty back patio--nice patio, but a kitchen that was small and poorly planned
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:19:01 PM] <DesertRose> How much do you cook, Shiral?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:19:06 PM] <Shiral> Nightly
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:19:12 PM] <Shiral> So kitchen is important
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:19:13 PM] <jemler> you any good?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:19:20 PM] <DesertRose> For me, the kitchen might be the selling point if I were in the market to buy.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:19:38 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, then I'd have passed on that one.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:19:39 PM] <jemler> i do ok, but i wont poison someone else with my cooking. :)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:19:44 PM] <Shiral> This one had the sink and dish washer with the dish cupboards BEHIND you
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:19:53 PM] <Jerusha> I used every available space in my kitchen for dinner, tonight
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:00 PM] <DesertRose> Who the hell thought that was a good idea?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:03 PM] <Shiral> And your dirty dishes would be in view of your dinner guests
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:15 PM] <KK> If it's good space but just poorly planned, that can always be upgraded later, if it isn't too bad. But the patio and outside entrance part is a deal breaker.

[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:22 PM] <jemler> hi df
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:29 PM] <Shiral> The thing is, I wondered if they HAD to do it that way because of inconvenient plumbing
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:30 PM] <the_Bee> Hi DF
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:31 PM] <cynicalmedic> Hi DF

[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:34 PM] <DesertRose> Hi derynifanatic64.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:34 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12hi all
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:35 PM] <Jerusha> Hi DF64
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:43 PM] <KK> Not good.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:46 PM] <Evie> hi DF
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:20:51 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, I'm with KK, not cool.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:21:15 PM] <Shiral> So that's why I took a break to retain my sanity
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:21:20 PM] <DesertRose> Sanity breaks are good.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:21:21 PM] <jemler> how inconvenient? the sink doesn't connect to the toilet does it?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:21:30 PM] <Jerusha> If you have to make small changes, that's not so bad. But if you are looking at major renovations, you need to look closely
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:21:53 PM] <cynicalmedic> I don't have a dishwasher, and the kitchen is really open. We ended up buying some bits and pieces from Ikea, and creating a counter and storage.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:22:10 PM] <DesertRose> I don't have a dishwasher either, and I wish I did.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:22:13 PM] <jemler> i have a dishwasher. me.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:22:14 PM] <Jerusha> No dishwasher???
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:22:22 PM] <bynw> sanity is over rated :)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:22:27 PM] <the_Bee> just me
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:22:39 PM] <DesertRose> The building I live in is old and there isn't really a good place in my kitchen to put a dishwasher.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:22:40 PM] <jemler> sanity is just a state of mind.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:22:50 PM] <KK> Yeah, changing plumbing is expensive.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:22:59 PM] <cynicalmedic> It's just the two of us, and if we get together with family, we go to either my brother's house or my sister's - they have more space.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:23:07 PM] <Shiral> I can live without a dish washer, but I need kitchen counterspace. there wasn't much, and because of the layout, therewasn't much room to add an island
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:23:23 PM] <DesertRose> Then that sounds like a good one to let go, Shiral.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:23:49 PM] <Shiral> Yes, I did let it go last week, DR
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:23:54 PM] <jemler> have you thought of putting a rolling shelf under another, and pulling it out when you need it?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:24:15 PM] <DesertRose> When my parents were last in the market (15+ years ago), there was a house they looked at that had a really awesome kitchen, but it was just a little out of their price range.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:24:37 PM] <DesertRose> I still miss the kitchen in the house where I grew up. It was great.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:24:41 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12it always comes down to money
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:25:10 PM] <Jerusha> And what you really need, and what you just want
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:25:43 PM] <DesertRose> My mom misses that kitchen too. It was designed for entertaining, which meant that two people could work comfortably in there, and three but you'd be bumping arses a bit.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:25:45 PM] <Shiral> I don't feel that what I want is all that extravagant. The problem is finding it in the right combination
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:26:24 PM] <KK> Kitchen islands don't have to be huge to be useful. I have one on wheels, that we added after we moved in, and I don't know what I'd do without it.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:26:36 PM] <the_Bee> Just don't pass up the good while searching for the perfect.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:27:05 PM] <Shiral> They're very handy, but with that floor plan, there wouldn't have been any place to put it that didn't block off something else that was important
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:27:37 PM] <Jerusha> There will be a better one, then
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:27:52 PM] * DesertRose sends condo woodgies to Shiral.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:28:01 PM] <KK> It has 3 drawers, 2 cupboards below, plus an open shelf, a leaf that folds out, a spice cabinet in one end--and I got it at Lowe's, though they don't carry it anymore.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:28:19 PM] <Jerusha> Nice, KK
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:28:28 PM] <cynicalmedic> My husband has one he stores away - he just uses it when he makes bread. I'm always happy when he pulls it out, too.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:28:46 PM] <Jerusha> I would be, too:)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:28:48 PM] * Shiral wants the kitchen at Rhemuth Castle
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:28:54 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:29:04 PM] <the_Bee> with the kitchen midden?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:29:09 PM] <Jerusha> Complete with the servants?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:29:10 PM] <Evie> I only want that kitchen if it has a dishwasher. ;-)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:29:11 PM] <KK> If it's on wheels/casters, it can be moved as necessary. But only if you have some open space to begin with.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:29:17 PM] <Shiral> With the nice Bremagni chef
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:29:35 PM] <Jerusha> And those lovely pheasants?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:29:43 PM] <Shiral> Definitely
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:29:46 PM] <jemler> or house elves from harry potter.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:29:47 PM] <KK> Roasted on spits, I suspect.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:29:51 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12:D
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:29:56 PM] <KK> I could use a house elf.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:30:13 PM] <Evie> pheasants on spits, I hope, and not house elves!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:30:14 PM] <Jerusha> Roasted on a spit?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:30:15 PM] <Shiral> Hey now, there's an idea, I need a house elf! And a Room of Requirement!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:30:27 PM] <Evie> KK, how are our heroes this week?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:30:31 PM] <KK> I'd even give my elf a sock!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:30:35 PM] <DesertRose> The Room of Requirement would be awesome.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:30:39 PM] <cynicalmedic> Or Merlyn's magic mustard pot from The Once and Future King
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:30:47 PM] <Evie> I definitely need a Room of Requirement
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:30:48 PM] Join Sarah1 has joined this channel (~Sarah@OWIRCN-6423685f.wtenn.teleclipse.net).
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:30:52 PM] <Jerusha> And how is Silke?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:30:55 PM] <the_Bee> Hi Sarah
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:30:58 PM] <Shiral> And Jehana
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:31:00 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Sarah
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:31:00 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12hi sarah
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:31:06 PM] <Shiral> WB Sarah
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:31:12 PM] <the_Bee> Room of Requirement?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:31:17 PM] <Sarah1> That was a crazy boot there.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:31:27 PM] <DesertRose> I would totally pay a house elf just to do the dishes. I despise doing dishes. :P
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:31:29 PM] Quit Sarah has left this server (Ping timeout: 121 seconds).
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:31:30 PM] <Sarah1> hehe, lovely idea Bee
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:31:31 PM] <Evie> bw Sarah
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:31:52 PM] <Sarah1> And im with DesertRose on the houseelf dish washer
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:31:55 PM] <Shiral> DR, I'm with you
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:32:01 PM] <Jerusha> I would end up with a house gremlin
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:32:09 PM] <Evie> Luke has stopped by to crush my left arm and say hello to everyone
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:32:13 PM] <cynicalmedic> BRB - I have to go find the popcorn for a bunch of inept firefighters - boys! :(
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:32:17 PM] <KK> Heroes are fine. Alaric has been dancing with Silke, and she's wistfully mooted the possibility of marrying him, because her mother is talking about an elderly Connaiti prince.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:32:20 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Like!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:32:20 PM] <Sarah1> I hate our dishwasher so much there are days when if I loved alone, I'd wash the dang dishes myself by hand.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:32:23 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Luke.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:32:35 PM] <Shiral> I think a house elf would come in handy on more than one occasion though.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:32:39 PM] <Sarah1> Hiya Luke
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:32:41 PM] <the_Bee> What's a Room of Requirement, and what does it require?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:32:51 PM] <DesertRose> From Harry Potter, Bee.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:32:53 PM] <Sarah1> Harry Potter reference
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:33:03 PM] <Evie> Poor Silke. Though at least she gets out of the marriage with the elderly Connaiti
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:33:03 PM] <DesertRose> It's a Room in Hogwarts Castle that becomes whatever you need it to be.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:33:05 PM] <the_Bee> Ah, ok
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:33:14 PM] <KK> A house elf who's a loyal household retainer.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:33:17 PM] <Shiral> Well that would rather severely change the Morgan line, KK
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:33:19 PM] <Jerusha> Silke marrying Alaric???
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:33:27 PM] <jemler> but you have to find it. it's easy.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:33:58 PM] <Evie> Well, I'm sure Alaric has fanbabes in his own place and time too, not just on the Internet. ;-)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:34:15 PM] <Evie> and a girl can dream
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:34:17 PM] <Shiral> As long as Silke doesn't marry a house elf Oops, cross pollination of worlds
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:34:35 PM] <Jerusha> I'll be a fanbabe at any time
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:35:00 PM] <Shiral> If she did marry Alaric, she'd have a hard time with Jehana, though
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:35:20 PM] <Jerusha> Where were they dancing, KK?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:35:27 PM] <KK> Alaric is q uick to point out all the reasons why that would not be a good dea. And someone--Jamyl, I think, I'm just writing this section--comes to take her onto the floor to dance again. And if it's Jamyl, he'd report to the CC quickly, though he's occupied with figuring out how to save Denis from being found out at his upcoming ordination.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:35:43 PM] <KK> She likes Jehana; they've becomd buds.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:36:38 PM] <Shiral> That must please Brion
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:36:43 PM] <Evie> So Alaric knows a Princess is crushing on him? :-D
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:36:57 PM] <Evie> that has to be good for the ego, even if he knows nothing can come of it
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:37:03 PM] <KK> If Alaric were not Deryni, a duke marrying the king's sister would make excellent sense.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:37:27 PM] <Shiral> Since he is, Jehana's head would explode
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:37:35 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:37:40 PM] <DesertRose> And then we'd have no Kelson. :(
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:37:44 PM] <Evie> Yeah, can't have that. :D
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:38:02 PM] <Shiral> And we wouldn't get a Richenda later
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:38:12 PM] <Shiral> Or a Briony and Kelric
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:38:27 PM] Nick Sarah1 is now known as Sarah_afk.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:39:16 PM] <Jerusha> How much older than Alaric is Silke?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:39:25 PM] <Jerusha> Or vice versa
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:40:55 PM] <cynicalmedic> back, now that the popcorn beasts have been fed.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:41:21 PM] <Evie> lol
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:41:31 PM] <KK> A couple of years older.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:41:37 PM] <DesertRose> Popcorn beasts, LOL
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:41:52 PM] <KK> I have a popcorn beast in my house.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:42:01 PM] <DesertRose> Scott or Cameron?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:42:05 PM] <DesertRose> Or both?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:42:05 PM] <Shiral> Popcorn beast?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:42:19 PM] <KK> Scott. Cameron now lives in LA.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:42:21 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12POPCORN!!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:42:34 PM] <Jerusha> That's a long way away, KK
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:42:37 PM] <Shiral> I have two cats who ADORE white cheddar popcorn
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:42:39 PM] <Shiral> They
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:42:41 PM] <DesertRose> I didn't know if Cameron was visiting or something.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:42:43 PM] <Shiral> d climb me to get it
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:42:51 PM] <cynicalmedic> I'm working with ten of them this evening, my EMT partner included.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:43:05 PM] <Jerusha> You need lots of popcorn
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:43:29 PM] <cynicalmedic> Costco is a firehouse friend, trust me.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:43:33 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, I bet.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:43:57 PM] <DesertRose> The firefighters around here seem to go to either Costco or BJs for the bulk stuff and then Publix for smaller things.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:44:23 PM] <cynicalmedic> It also comes in handy for feeding all five of my honorary nephews- all with different food obsessions
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:44:27 PM] <DesertRose> I can't count the number of times I've seen the fire truck/ambulance at Publix so the firehouse can have food.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:44:29 PM] <KK> Cameron is currently on his way back to LA from SF with a new (to him) Peugeot. He and his girlfriend rode the Greyhound up to collect it.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:44:40 PM] <DesertRose> Oh fun.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:44:50 PM] <Jerusha> Nice
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:45:00 PM] <cynicalmedic> That's quite a drive.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:45:04 PM] <Shiral> He
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:45:04 PM] <jemler> isn't that the kind of car patrick jane drives in the mentalist?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:45:06 PM] <KK> Nice if it turns out to be a good, reliable car. He loves French cars.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:45:15 PM] <Shiral> s a brave man to buy a car long distance
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:45:18 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, I'm going to be in the market for a new-to-me car before too many more months pass. My car, as my brother puts it, needs a new automobile.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:45:34 PM] <Jerusha> I thought Jane drove a Citroen
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:45:44 PM] <KK> I think he does.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:45:50 PM] <jemler> ok, maybe tahts it. thanks jerusha.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:45:55 PM] <KK> Cameron has also had Citroens.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:46:08 PM] <cynicalmedic> What kind of car do you want, DR?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:46:09 PM] <Jerusha> He liked them?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:46:15 PM] <Shiral> Actually, you can do SF to LA in a day, CM
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:46:21 PM] <KK> And 2 CV'x/Deux Cheveaux.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:46:23 PM] <Shiral> It's about 400 miles
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:46:34 PM] <KK> Easily in a day.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:46:37 PM] <Shiral> A long day, but very possible
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:46:41 PM] <DesertRose> Something with 4 cylinders because I'm tired of paying to gas a 6-cylinder engine, something reliable, and pleasegods something with a functioning AC.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:46:44 PM] <jemler> i used to walk where ever i needed to go. i went for a walk one day, for somethimng to do, and came home 9 hours later.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:47:13 PM] * bynw has a long drive coming up next month for gencon
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:47:15 PM] <Jerusha> That was a long walk, Jemler
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:47:26 PM] <DesertRose> Other than that, I'm not particularly picky, except that I don't want a dark colored car, because it is too darn hot in Florida for that crap.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:47:26 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12I've driven from Orlando, FL to Charleston, SC and back in a day
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:47:28 PM] <jemler> i just roamed around.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:47:30 PM] <Shiral> Indeed on the AC considering you're in Florida, DR
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:47:41 PM] <cynicalmedic> Well, I hope you have a safe, uneventful trip, Bynw
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:47:48 PM] <jemler> df: leadfoot.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:48:04 PM] <DesertRose> The current car's AC crapped out on me three summers ago, and I am tired of driving in summer that lasts from April to October with no AC.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:48:08 PM] <KK> Wouldn't want a silver car; too close in color to the road.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:48:17 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12that's about 7 hours each way
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:48:22 PM] <Evie> Yeah, light or metallic (reflective) cars work best here in this Southern heat
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:48:30 PM] <Shiral> I have a silver car-- no accidents yet!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:48:31 PM] <DesertRose> That's a lot of driving, DF.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:48:39 PM] <KK> Evie, are you coming to Dragoncon this year?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:48:48 PM] <DesertRose> I have a silver car, but it doesn't matter what color car I drive, people don't see me for some stupid reason.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:49:02 PM] <Evie> I don't think so, KK. DS starts college that month, and we still don't know how much that is going to cost us
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:49:16 PM] <KK> Ah. Bummer. We had fun last year.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:49:18 PM] <DesertRose> I joke that I wanted to grow up to be Wonder Woman when I was a kid, but I didn't mean that I wanted to drive an invisible vehicle.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:49:24 PM] <jemler> dr: are you too short to see over the steering wheel?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:49:26 PM] <KK> LOL
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:49:36 PM] <DesertRose> Heck no. I am 5'8".
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:49:43 PM] <jemler> lol
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:49:56 PM] <Evie> we didn't prereserve either, so even if we end up being able to go, it's going to cost us a lot more to pay at the door. I might be able to afford a day or two at most.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:50:00 PM] <jemler> what kind of car do you drive?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:50:05 PM] <cynicalmedic> We have a 4 cl Mercury Mariner, and we get excellent gas mileage in it
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:50:18 PM] <DesertRose> I currently drive a 2000 Mazda 626.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:50:34 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12 4 door 2006 Honda civic
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:50:40 PM] <jemler> so it's not a pregnant roller skate.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:50:45 PM] <KK> A black 2007 Subaru Outback.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:50:45 PM] <Jerusha> MINI Countryman turbo
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:50:53 PM] <DesertRose> I was idly looking at a 2003 Honda Civic online.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:50:53 PM] <Evie> I have a lot more littles than I had at DCon last year, KK. Some would feel left out at not being able to go on the trip. ;-)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:51:14 PM] <Shiral> 2003 2 door Honda Civic, here
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:51:16 PM] <DesertRose> I'm not sure what my price range is going to be, so I'm not looking hard yet.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:51:19 PM] <Evie> I just bought the future Rothana. She should arrive in the mail this week.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:51:20 PM] <KK> Well, you'd have to pick and choose.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:51:23 PM] <Shiral> Good cars, DR
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:51:29 PM] <KK> HOndas are great cars.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:51:32 PM] <jemler> evie, do they get on at half price, or 1/6th price? :)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:51:34 PM] <Jerusha> Future Rothana?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:51:37 PM] <the_Bee> a tricycle. I never got my driver's lcense.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:51:46 PM] <Evie> I wish I could get them at 1/6 price! :D
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:51:46 PM] <DesertRose> So I hear. I've never had a Honda, but the driving school that taught me used Honda Accords as their teaching cars.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:51:48 PM] <cynicalmedic> You have to get a Barbie camper or bus, Evie - I'm not sure how Alaric, Duncan and Derry would cope with all the pink, though
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:52:08 PM] <Shiral> Save up, DR
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:52:09 PM] <Evie> LOL! Plastic primer and paint work wonders on Barbie Pink, CM.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:52:18 PM] <Shiral> they're worth it for the reliability
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:52:21 PM] <jemler> they could cast a glamour to make it look mauve. :)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:52:31 PM] <KK> I only drove Hondas in Ireland, and had one before we moved over there. But when we moved back, hatchbacks were not avialable here, so Cameron suggested the Subaru. Even better than the Hondas.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:52:40 PM] <cynicalmedic> Maybe they would rather have a GI Joe tank
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:52:48 PM] <Evie> The yellow and red shoes that Helena's new body came with are now a more versatile black satin
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:53:04 PM] <Jerusha> I had a Honda element. It was wonderful for moving sons to various apartments
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:53:07 PM] <DesertRose> Well, part of the thing is that I heard from my brother that we (that is, my father's children) are supposed to inherit some amount of cash from our late father's estate, so I'm waiting to see what that amounts to.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:53:07 PM] <KK> Where did you get that va-voom body for her?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:53:15 PM] <bynw> AFK
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:53:16 PM] <Evie> LOL! Ebay, KK
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:53:18 PM] <Shiral> I noticed that Helena is erm... rather well-endowed suddenly, Evie
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:53:31 PM] <KK> What kind of doll is she?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:53:57 PM] <DesertRose> If the inheritance is more than $1000, it's going to become a down payment on a car, and if it's more than that, so much the better.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:54:04 PM] <Evie> Yes. I'm hoping to give Richenda a more womanly body too eventually. The Liv bodies they've been using have more teenager-looking curves, which get lost under multiple layers of clothing
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:54:29 PM] <Evie> Even covered with two layers of fabric now, you can still tell Helena is a female under all those robes.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:54:29 PM] <Jerusha> Alaric agrees :D
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:55:00 PM] <KK> And whata kind of doll is she, she asked again?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:55:05 PM] <Evie> She's a ZC Girl Eve action figure, KK. It's out of production now, but there's a seller on eBay that still has a few stockpiled.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:55:41 PM] <Evie> This style body is a bit pale for Richenda, and the tan version is too dark, but I have a friend who is on the lookout for a suitable body for Richenda
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:55:50 PM] <KK> Hmmm, never heard of them. But she's got a nice bod. Is the seller willing to part with another one?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:56:18 PM] <Evie> Probably, KK. If the store still has the others and hasn't sold out.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:56:43 PM] <cynicalmedic> I saw this http://www.dolloutlet.com/ when I was planning our annual trip to Lancaster, Pa - not sure if they would have anything you could use, Evie
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:56:59 PM] <Evie> I'm looking at a BBI Perfect Body for Richenda, maybe, if that's a closer color match. Or possibly a TTL, which I think is a good color match, but they don't have as ladylike a sit as the others
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:57:13 PM] <Evie> then again, in long skirts, it might not matter that she can't put her knees together
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:57:30 PM] <DesertRose> Not to mention, she could ride and not side-saddle. :)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:57:51 PM] <Evie> Exactly. I'm still working out how to get Alaric's and kelson's heads to new bodies safely
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:58:02 PM] <Evie> I have two bodies for them, but it's the head conversion that''s going to be tricky
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:58:05 PM] * Shiral has naughty thought... but doesn't want to get bombarded by fish
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:58:16 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Shiral.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:58:28 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12:D
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:58:34 PM] <Evie> I'm shooting for a PG-13 rather than R rating with the photostory, Shiral. ;-)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:58:36 PM] <Jerusha> :D
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:58:42 PM] <Shiral> Aww.....
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:58:47 PM] <Evie> Though there are those infamous L-shaped bedsheets.... ;-)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:58:49 PM] <Jerusha> Shucks
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:59:00 PM] <KK> LOL, Evie!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:59:02 PM] <Shiral> It was more about er..riding ability, Evie
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:59:18 PM] <KK> Ooooo.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:59:24 PM] <DesertRose> Oh my. :P
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:59:31 PM] <Jerusha> Wow
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:59:32 PM] * Shiral shuts up and has a little crème puff
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:59:41 PM] <cynicalmedic> giggles
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:59:44 PM] <KK> As well you might!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [07:59:54 PM] <Evie> I do eventually hope to have a curtained bed, so the curtains could just discreetly close and leave them to their privacy before the beginning of the next scene. :D
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:00:13 PM] <Shiral> Was on the verge of Shakespearean for a second, but I'll control it
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:00:18 PM] <DesertRose> The photostory version of the old-fashioned movie fade-to-black.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:00:22 PM] <Jerusha> And all is left for the imagination....
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:00:35 PM] <KK> One does try to be discreet.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:00:44 PM] <Shiral> Better that way
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:00:55 PM] <Shiral> But not always as much fun
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:01:18 PM] <Evie> Once i work out the chain mail hauberk, Alaric can re-enact the Richenda's Surprise Visit scene. Except he'd need spurs as well, and it would help to have bedsheets. ;-)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:01:30 PM] <cynicalmedic> I think my coworkers think I've gone mad - I can't stop laughing.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:01:43 PM] <Jerusha> I was just thinking he needs to keep his spurs outside the curtains
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:01:44 PM] <Shiral> Richenda makes sure he's NOT wearing spurs at that point if I recall correctly
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:02:01 PM] <Evie> yes, but for him to take them off, he first needs to have some
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:02:07 PM] <the_Bee> She makes him take them off.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:02:35 PM] <Evie> He also needs to be on his new Evo body. His current one tends to slump annoyingly when he's being posed
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:02:44 PM] <KK> I liked that she brought her own bed linens. THey would have been very precious in those days.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:02:53 PM] <Evie> and the new body is better built. In more ways than one.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:02:55 PM] <Shiral> Tsk, you can't have a duke with poor posture
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:02:58 PM] <Jerusha> Now that brings some pictures to mind!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:03:07 PM] <Evie> yes,that was a lovely touch, KK
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:03:18 PM] <jemler> Evie: check this out. http://www.store-rooms.com/BrowseManufacturer.aspx?mid=10
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:03:23 PM] <Shiral> She was making sure he wouldn't stay angry for very long. =o)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:03:36 PM] <DesertRose> Aw. This is cute. http://kotaku.com/this-is-3d-coffee-art-for-regular-folks-632377839
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:03:56 PM] <Evie> for some reason I am having trouble opening links from chat today. i couldn't open CM's either earlier
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:04:23 PM] <jemler> that site has spare parts (like feet) for those zc girls.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:04:28 PM] <DesertRose> The thing I linked is an article about custom marshmallows that make it look like there's a kitten peeking out of your hot chocolate.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:04:31 PM] <cynicalmedic> Do you want me to post it to you on the message board?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:04:48 PM] <Evie> Here's the new Rothana, or at least her head. I have a jointed body waiting that I hope will match her skin tone. http://www.ebay.com/itm/MAGNIFICENT-JET-BLACK-RAVEN-BARBIE-INDIA-DOTW-SMOLDERING-EYES-NUDE-GORGEOUS-NEW-/171070765759?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT&nma=true&si=xMxMvCKk8t1WYncHRkW%252BQhTyVO8%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc And the bindi will need to come off, but that should take seconds with a d
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:05:11 PM] <Evie> I'll be able to get it later from the chat transcript, CM
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:05:38 PM] <Evie> links from that work just fine, it's just trying to open a browser window from my chat client that isn't working at the moment for some reason
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:05:46 PM] <cynicalmedic> Ok - I wouldn't want to forget, just in case the tones drop
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:06:12 PM] <Jerusha> Nice, Evie
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:06:36 PM] <Shiral> More Evie-esque heads on stakes!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:07:09 PM] <Evie> I liked her dusky skin and the long braided black hair. There was also a Moroccan Barbie that could have worked, but it was hard to find either of them at a decent price. They normally start in the $35 and higher range now.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:08:03 PM] <Evie> Even when this one was in the local stores, she was nearly $30. I kept hoping she'd come down, since that was more than i wanted to pay for just a head, but she sold out first.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:08:29 PM] <Evie> so I started searching eBay for a nude, not mint-in-box one
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:08:46 PM] <DesertRose> Since all you want is the head anyway. :)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:08:48 PM] <Evie> that's usually the best way to find a particular doll or action figure for less
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:10:33 PM] <KK> There obviously is a fine art to body harvesting--and head harvesting.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:10:48 PM] <Evie> KK, here's the same body I bought for Helena: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ZC-Girl-Eve-Pale-Female-Action-Figure-1-6th-Scale-Brand-New-MIB-/380671504018?pt=US_Action_Figures&hash=item58a1ca2e92
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:11:24 PM] <Jerusha> I like her hair, Evie
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:11:28 PM] <Evie> I just bought her some flat feet so she can stand on her own without wearing her high heels
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:11:41 PM] <Evie> I saved the head from this body so i can reuse it on another body sometime
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:12:03 PM] <Evie> she can be a lady-in-waiting or something
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:12:06 PM] <Shiral> doll Eugenics brought to you by Evie
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:12:08 PM] <KK> Nice redhead.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:12:09 PM] <Evie> or a Schola student
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:12:09 PM] <the_Bee> The redhaead looks more like A young Jehana to me.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:12:25 PM] <Jerusha> Yes!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:12:52 PM] <Evie> Unfortunately she'd be too young for Jehana in the late 1130s, though
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:12:58 PM] <Evie> which is when my photostory is set
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:13:18 PM] <Jerusha> Perhaps there could be a flashback
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:13:20 PM] <KK> This one isn't as vapid-looking as the one you bought.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:13:35 PM] <KK> Could be one of Jehana's sisters.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:13:49 PM] <Evie> It's probably a trick of the camera angle, KK. The eyes are decals, so it should have the same expression as the one I bought
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:14:02 PM] <KK> Hmmm. OK.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:14:04 PM] <Evie> I would have to remove the decal if I wanted to change eye color, I think.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:14:19 PM] <jemler> dhugal has red hair, could be one of his sisters.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:14:48 PM] <Evie> Photography can really change the look of a headsculpt, I'm learning. There is one that I really hated the look of in the promotional photos, but a friend recently posted close up pictures of his, and she's gorgeous in his photos
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:15:05 PM] <the_Bee> or the "twin aunt we've never met
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:15:46 PM] <jemler> maryse' hair was almost white.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:16:18 PM] <Jerusha> So where did Dhugal's read hair come from?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:16:30 PM] <Jerusha> Red
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:16:38 PM] <Shiral> Maryse was Caulay's daughter and HE had red hair
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:16:40 PM] <the_Bee> recessive genes?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:16:43 PM] <Shiral> Skipped a generation
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:16:51 PM] <Evie> I considered this body for Helena and she might work for Richenda, but I can't afford it right now, and I'd rather pay less if I can: http://www.ebay.com/itm/141012628128?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:16:56 PM] <Jerusha> I forgot about Caulay
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:17:13 PM] <Evie> The same place as my son's red hair...several generations back.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:17:19 PM] <Shiral> Her mother could have had it too, since it's never specifically stated
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:17:32 PM] <jemler> how about that! spare boobs! :)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:17:35 PM] * jemler ducks
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:17:44 PM] <Evie> LOL! Jemler's dream girl. ;-)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:18:13 PM] <jemler> talk about a la carte! :)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:18:23 PM] <Jerusha> Spare parts
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:18:24 PM] <KK> I, too, was wondering about the spare torso. What's the difference, Evie?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:18:35 PM] * DesertRose loads a catapult with koi and launches it at jemler.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:18:50 PM] <jemler> aloha koi!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:18:51 PM] <Evie> Yes, that figure comes with a smaller and a larger set. Helena's body came with a spare set as well, but in her case it was a set with pretty midriff attached and a set that has the soft pretty "skin' that ends under the breastline, but lets the waist bend more easily
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:19:32 PM] <Evie> On the Perfect Body figures, one torso is very small breasted and the other one is more medium breasted.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:19:52 PM] <Evie> ("medium" in action figure terms, that is. Some of the figures out there are very...um...Dolly Partonesque.)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:20:02 PM] <Shiral> Definitely not a period wardrobe in that photo, t hough
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:20:21 PM] <Evie> No, but that can get passed on to one of my modern figures. I mainly want the body
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:20:30 PM] <jemler> they're the ones that can't stand up.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:20:45 PM] <Evie> Oh, they can stand, jemler, in all their impressive glory. :D
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:22:11 PM] <KK> I guess some of them would be too top-heavy to stand. ;-D
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:22:13 PM] <Evie> Here's another body I considered for Richenda, though I wasn't sure she'd be this large breasted. There's a small breasted version, though, that might work better. I would have preferred a medium breasted figure of this sort, but one doesn't seem to exist. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-6-TTL-Female-Body-with-Large-Breast-TTL-68005-/360394175727?pt=US_Action_Figures&hash=item53e92ab4ef

[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:22:44 PM] <Evie> You'd be amazed, KK. They're well balanced, and even the ones with huge chests somehow seem to manage to stand on their own.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:23:00 PM] <Evie> Uh oh. :(
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:23:03 PM] <jemler> so do the dolls.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:23:16 PM] <jemler> you asked for it! :)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:23:24 PM] <Jerusha> Bye CM
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:23:37 PM] <the_Bee> We missed her.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:23:39 PM] <jemler> bad one cm
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:23:48 PM] <DesertRose> She left in a hurry.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:23:56 PM] <KK> Who would have guessed that simple Barbies would spawn so many variations?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:23:56 PM] <DesertRose> Understandable, of course.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:23:59 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12duty obviously called
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:24:08 PM] <the_Bee> Part of her job description
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:24:11 PM] <Shiral> My goodness... I confess I've NEVER paid this much attention to doll bodies before!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:24:11 PM] <DesertRose> Yup.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:24:14 PM] <Evie> Here's the small breasted version of the same figure. It's still not small compared to a Liv or Barbie: http://www.ebay.com/itm/TTL-1-6-CG-CY-Girl-Female-Small-Breast-Nude-Body-Figure-L1-0A-/360689903385?pt=US_Action_Figures&hash=item53facb2719
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:24:50 PM] <Evie> actually these are more closely related in some ways to GI Joes, KK. They're primary target buyers tend to be men who do military and/or action hero figures
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:25:01 PM] <Jerusha> That one looks out of proportion to the rest of the body
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:25:07 PM] <Evie> So the bodies are designed to move well and look good in superhero costumes and such
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:25:16 PM] <jemler> go figure (no pun intended)
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:25:19 PM] <Evie> which one does, Jerusha
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:25:23 PM] <Jerusha> Jemler!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:25:33 PM] <DesertRose> Baloney, jemler. We know you meant that pun!
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:25:34 PM] <Jerusha> The small breasted version
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:25:53 PM] <jemler> it was better than most.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:25:57 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12get the wet mackerel out
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:26:07 PM] <Evie> There are also the Phicen bodies, which look amazing, but are harder to pose (or so I hear) without breaking, and they're more expensive than I can afford
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:26:19 PM] <KK> There's one adjacent to the past one that has distinct collarbones. Very pretty.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:26:20 PM] <Evie> but they don't have visible joints, so they're gorgeous
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:26:54 PM] <Evie> adjacent to which, KK?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:26:58 PM] <KK> Are they jointed inside vinyl skins?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:27:02 PM] <Evie> yes
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:27:29 PM] <Evie> fully jointed, but not being able to see the joints means it's easier to try to bend them incorrectly, so breaks can occur more easily
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:27:30 PM] <KK> Kumik CG CY Girl Female Head #13-1 1/6
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:27:58 PM] <Evie> Oh, the Kumik is gorgeous--that's what Ailidh's body is--but it's got an odd gray undertone to her coloring that is incompatible with Barbie heads
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:28:47 PM] <KK> Wow, just looked at the time. And my DH has come home hungry, so I'd better run.
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:28:47 PM] <Evie> So to use a Kumik head, I'd have to use a Kumik or similar sort of body that has that peculiar coloring. My Denis Arilan figure is one of those figures with that undertone to his skin
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:28:57 PM] <Jerusha> I didn't realize you have an Ailidh body, Evie. Do you have a head?
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:29:03 PM] <Shiral> Have a good week, and write well, KK
[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:29:08 PM] <Shiral> Thanks for stopping by!

[Sunday, July 14, 2013] [08:29:17 PM] <DesertRose> Nighters, KK. Have a good week. Thanks for coming to see us.

"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
