[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:05:27 PM] <CaChief> Hello Katherine. You may recall the person who sat in an adjacent desk and proof read manuscripts.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:05:32 PM] <the_Bee> Welcome to you too, CaChief
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:05:40 PM] * DesertRose sets out homemade shortbread and strawberry cake.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:06:02 PM] <KK> Where was that, CaChief?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:06:25 PM] <CaChief> Staff Services Unit, Training Division.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:06:48 PM] <KK> Oh, my. That would have been a loooong time ago!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:06:53 PM] * kirienne sets out a tray of roasted meats and cheeses
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:07:10 PM] <CaChief> Only about forty years ago.

[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:07:19 PM] * the_Bee sets out cold drinks
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:07:34 PM] <KK> Care to narrow that down? First name?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:08:17 PM] <CaChief> It is I, Christopher.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:08:30 PM] <KK> The loopy one?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:08:55 PM] <Annie> LOL! Great way to be remembered after 40 years!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:09:05 PM] <kirienne> :-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:09:07 PM] * Evie privately wonders if "loopy one" can't be used to describe everyone here.... ;-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:09:26 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:09:27 PM] <KK> If it's the Christopher I remember, he'll know that that means.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:09:30 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:09:31 PM] * Annie thinks Evie should speak for herself
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:09:37 PM] <CaChief> Exactly. The one who retired after forty-two years as a Chief Investigator for the state.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:09:40 PM] <the_Bee> Was this around the time DR or DC was just published?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:09:50 PM] <Evie> My darlin' Annie, you too are as loopy as all getout. Just in your own ways. :-D
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:09:56 PM] <KK> Wow, I had no idea! That's great!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:09:57 PM] <jemler> i'm not loopy. i'm just outgoing in a totally bizzare way! :)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:10:48 PM] <CaChief> I had the pleasure of reading many galleys.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:10:53 PM] <KK> It would have been. I wrote the first 6 books while riting for the department.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:11:06 PM] <KK> writing.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:11:14 PM] <KK> Keyboard is crazy tonight.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:11:19 PM] <jemler> ypu may owe them back pay.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:11:28 PM] <Evie> I was about to tease you and add "And while proofreading for the department?"
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:11:41 PM] <KK> It was weekends and weeknights and lunch hours....
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:12:00 PM] <KK> We proofed, and we wrote, and we also had a lot of fun.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:12:04 PM] <CaChief> mostly lunch hours
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:12:13 PM] <DesertRose> Everybody who writes squeezes writing into odd little nooks of time.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:12:25 PM] <Evie> some odder than others, lately
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:12:43 PM] Join cynicalmedic has joined this channel (Mibbit@OWIRCN-ea96870c.md.comcast.net).

[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:12:59 PM] <Evie> DH still offers to get me a grease pencil so I can write notes down in the shower
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:01 PM] <jemler> hi cm
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:12 PM] <cynicalmedic> Evening all - it was great, KK. I like it very much.

[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:23 PM] <KK> (And some of you know that Shiral found her condo this week!)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:29 PM] * jemler ponders the visual. hmmm...
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:31 PM] <the_Bee> Yay!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:33 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, no, I hadn't heard that. YAY Shiral!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:37 PM] <cynicalmedic> Yay!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:46 PM] <kirienne> I knew Shiral had found one, did she get it?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:48 PM] <the_Bee> the one she wanted?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:49 PM] <Evie> and I want her kitchen. :D
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:50 PM] <KK> Yep, I think she closes in only a few weeks.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:53 PM] <Laurna> New job, new home, nice week
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:13:54 PM] <cynicalmedic> She's had quite the struggle to find one.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:14:03 PM] <kirienne> that's wonderful, I'm so happy for her.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:14:04 PM] <KK> She got it, and in a bidding war, too.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:14:54 PM] <DesertRose> Awesome.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:15:03 PM] <Evie> KK, how are our heroes this week?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:15:05 PM] <KK> Her kitchen is great. And 2 huge badrooms.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:15:13 PM] <the_Bee> how bad?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:15:16 PM] <jemler> badrooms?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:15:18 PM] <Evie> Several goodrooms as well
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:15:19 PM] <Evie> ;-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:15:20 PM] <Laurna> BAD?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:15:28 PM] <KK> Our heroes are getting ready to go into Eastmarch to put down the rebellion there.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:15:37 PM] <kirienne> :-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:15:39 PM] <jemler> topic change
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:15:45 PM] <KK> bedrooms, yeah. Rented fingers.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:02 PM] <the_Bee> rooms for being bad
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:02 PM] <kirienne> I have rented fingers to go with my rented brain
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:09 PM] <jemler> bad in the bedrooms?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:18 PM] * jemler ducks
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:18 PM] Join Jerusha has joined this channel (Mibbit@4FC299.2DD460.2C3BC8.5A2AF2).
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:21 PM] <DesertRose> Hey Jerusha.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:22 PM] <Evie> hi Jerusha
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:24 PM] <jemler> hi jerusha
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:25 PM] <the_Bee> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:27 PM] <cynicalmedic> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:30 PM] <Laurna> Hello Jerusha
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:31 PM] <kirienne> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:38 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Everyone!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:16:55 PM] <KK> So, Evie,, does the canopy bed have its hangings yet?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:17:12 PM] <Evie> Nope. I've been alternately too busy, too lazy, or too tired to work on them
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:17:33 PM] <Evie> I also would rather do it by machine than by hand, but I hate my machine, so that's demotivating
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:17:57 PM] <Annie> hi Jerusha
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:18:04 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Annie!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:18:10 PM] <Annie> sorry, just ducked out to see what exactly a condo was
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:18:13 PM] <Evie> However, Richenda and Araxie have two new bodies on order, and I found a home for the one I got this week that is too dark for Richenda
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:18:18 PM] <KK> Why do you hate your machine?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:18:33 PM] <jemler> what's wrong with their old bodies?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:18:43 PM] <KK> Ah, where'd the excess body going?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:18:52 PM] <Evie> Sewing machines and I don't get along. I know how to use one--I did fine in home ec classes and such--but I have better control when I hand sew
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:18:58 PM] <cynicalmedic> anyone that had never been here before and saw bodies on order might wonder what they wandered into
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:19:17 PM] * bynw peeks back into the chat from working on a website
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:19:19 PM] <Jerusha> And heads on sticks
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:19:35 PM] <Evie> another action figure collector thinks he has a use for one that is dark tan/light brown, KK. It looked much lighter in the photo on eBay than it actually was.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:19:45 PM] <Evie> LOL, CM
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:20:04 PM] <Laurna> fortunately I have been Ease dropping for months
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:20:11 PM] <Evie> Bodies for the Deryni Action Figure project. Since we have a retired Chief Investigator here, perhaps I should be very specific. ;-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:20:12 PM] <KK> (We should exxplain for CaChief--especially him--and Laurna that these are doll bodies, for the Deryni littles. Look at the website.)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:20:47 PM] <Jerusha> Retired chief investigator?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:20:53 PM] <CaChief> I got it. No worries.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:20:53 PM] <Evie> Laurna's been active on the Forum, KK, even though this is her first time here in chat.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:20:56 PM] <jemler> also loopy
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:21:09 PM] <Jerusha> And with a new puppy!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:21:20 PM] <KK> Whose new puppy?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:21:25 PM] <DesertRose> Laurna's.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:21:25 PM] <Annie> Evie puts heads on pikes, CaChief. No worries.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:21:31 PM] <Evie> LOL, Annie!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:21:34 PM] <Laurna> Actully Evie I caught your ideas and bought two barbie dolls of my own to put costumes on
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:22:06 PM] <KK> Uh-oh, it's contagious!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:22:11 PM] <kirienne> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:22:15 PM] <Annie> so who are you making, Laurna? Jessa and Wash?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:22:15 PM] <Evie> :-D In that case, Laurna, I'll have mercy on you and not introduce you to the larger Ball-Jointed Dolls or Tonner dolls. A lot of costumers prefer them due to their larger size, but OMG they're pricey!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:22:28 PM] <Laurna> I'll e-mail you the tunic patern I am trying for the ken doll
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:22:34 PM] <Evie> :-D
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:22:38 PM] <Evie> thanks!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:23:03 PM] <Evie> I may have some patterns of interest for you too, though mostly I just wing it.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:23:12 PM] <cynicalmedic> I happened on a lot of toy horses - I haven't gotten the box yet to see if there is anything suitable for your projects. I bought them for my niece, trying to get the palomino she's missing.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:23:16 PM] <Laurna> It is so hard to type with a puppy in my lap.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:23:33 PM] <Jerusha> Nice puppy!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:23:40 PM] <Laurna> Thanks
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:23:50 PM] <KK> What kind of luppy?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:23:57 PM] <KK> puppy
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:24:01 PM] <Laurna> Cavalier king charles spaniel
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:24:10 PM] <KK> Oh, cute!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:24:16 PM] <Laurna> Very nice pedigree ,, Hope to show her
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:24:19 PM] <the_Bee> Oh, they're sweethearts!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:24:22 PM] <Jerusha> Very cute and cuddly
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:24:43 PM] <the_Bee> What's her name?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:24:56 PM] <Laurna> Jessa Mia at least at the moment
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:25:06 PM] <KK> Awwww
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:25:09 PM] <Jerusha> I vote for Jessa Mia
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:25:43 PM] <Laurna> I can use the support for my mom is not convensed
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:26:02 PM] <jemler> Jessa Mia by ABBA
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:26:10 PM] <Evie> What does she want to name her?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:26:17 PM] <Jerusha> Just have Jessa roll those puppy eyes at her - it will work
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:26:19 PM] <jemler> convinced
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:26:52 PM] <Laurna> lol I need the editing lol
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:26:58 PM] <jemler> lol
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:27:23 PM] <Evie> I like Jessa as a name much better than Sister Disarray.... (grins and runs)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:27:30 PM] <Evie> Laurna will get that joke
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:27:46 PM] <Laurna> Run fast run And I will run the other way
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:27:52 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:28:06 PM] <cynicalmedic> BRB - there seems the be an argument in the station kitchen over where I put the cookies.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:28:12 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:28:15 PM] <the_Bee> Do pedigreed pups come with official AKC names, or do the owners get to name them?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:28:16 PM] <jemler> she got it (i didn't)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:28:34 PM] <Jerusha> It all depends, Bee
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:29:07 PM] <KK> Don't they usually have kennel names, like stable names for horses, that are their everyday names?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:29:12 PM] <jemler> some of those names are ridiculous.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:29:15 PM] <Jerusha> Sometimes the breeder names them, and sometimes they work out a name with the new owner
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:29:21 PM] <Laurna> Her papered name is Mama Mia, Not my idea. I hope your station people find those cookies.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:29:45 PM] <Jerusha> Before Jessa does! :)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:30:04 PM] <jemler> papered name? the name they gave when she was house-broken?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:30:18 PM] <the_Bee> I didn't feel Melantha was really mine until I renamed her.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:30:19 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:30:19 PM] <Evie> KK, here's as far as I've gotten with Kelson's new bed: http://www.flickr.com/photos/9573389@N08/9396383463/ (The sofa is for my modern figures, not the Deryni.)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:30:25 PM] <KK> How old is she?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:30:43 PM] <Laurna> 11 weeks
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:31:03 PM] <Jerusha> You should post a picture in the gallery, Laurna
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:31:12 PM] <Annie> There is one
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:31:37 PM] <Evie> Yes, but the current photo doesn't have the new puppy in it, unless she's added another since I looked this afternoon.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:31:48 PM] <Annie> there's a new one :)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:31:59 PM] <DesertRose> Bynw just approved one an hour ish ago.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:32:04 PM] <Laurna> Just added it in the fur kids
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:32:16 PM] <Evie> Ah, so there is!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:32:21 PM] <Laurna> I like the gold embelishments on the bed
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:32:40 PM] <KK> Bed is looking good. Didn't it have slats at first?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:32:59 PM] <jemler> they replaced them after the wedding.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:33:05 PM] <Evie> Those were already gold when I got the bed, so I didn't have to paint them. I just added them once the white and pink bed was repainted black.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:33:10 PM] <Jerusha> Very nice, Evie! But very masculine. What is Araxie's opinion?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:33:52 PM] <Evie> It didn't come with slats, just a cardboard bit that sits on a small section of the frame sides that sticks in a few millimeters. I added the coffee stirrer slats so I can put a proper foam mattress on it later.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:33:54 PM] <KK> I think that's a camp bed, for taking with him on campaign. But now she can use it as a template for making a bigger one for Kelson and Araxie.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:34:12 PM] <Evie> yes, this is a bed that comes apart for traveling
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:34:31 PM] <Evie> If I make one for two, it will be both wider and a little longer. This one barely fits him.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:34:39 PM] <Annie> medieval flat pack
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:35:28 PM] <KK> Well, when one is in the field, one tends to curl up, cause it's cold, so it doesn't need to be longer.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:35:34 PM] <Evie> yep. Everything that can be broken down for storage and carting makes travel much easier
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:35:35 PM] <kirienne> That's a nice bed, Evie
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:36:05 PM] <KK> And looks <much> better in black. The pink was really cloying.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:36:12 PM] <kirienne> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:36:16 PM] <Evie> It's much better now that it's painted. It started out as a bed from a cheap $10 non-Mattel set
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:36:23 PM] <Laurna> agreed
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:36:36 PM] <Evie> what, Kelson isn't into baby pink? ;-)_
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:36:40 PM] <KK> I don't know that I've ever seen a double bed in Barbie-scale.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:37:04 PM] <Evie> they exist, just not made by Mattel
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:37:13 PM] <jemler> blasted censors
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:37:33 PM] <the_Bee> Mattel won't admit that Barbie and Ken sleep together.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:37:45 PM] <kirienne> ;-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:37:52 PM] <Jerusha> Twin beds
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:38:06 PM] <Annie> one foot on the floor at all times
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:38:17 PM] <jemler> they make malibu barbie, but don't give ken a chance to see how far the tan lines go!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:38:52 PM] * DesertRose swats jemler with a mackerel.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:38:52 PM] Quit cynicalmedic has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:39:06 PM] <jemler> fresh fish
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:39:09 PM] <KK> She must be still seatching for the cookies.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:39:21 PM] <Annie> uh oh. That cookie argument got serious.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:39:21 PM] <kirienne> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:39:35 PM] <Evie> lol
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:39:46 PM] <Jerusha> They probably ate them all and won't admit it
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:39:48 PM] <Evie> brb...on phone
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:40:00 PM] <Evie> not with CM though
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:40:01 PM] <Laurna> Mrs KK. I just want to say what a long time fan I have been, Thank you for all the wonderful stories. I am excited about the next one.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:40:19 PM] <jemler> :)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:40:53 PM] <KK> With any luck, it will be in the hands of the publishers by the end of the month.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:40:56 PM] <Annie> yay
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:41:01 PM] <kirienne> :-D
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:41:03 PM] <bynw> that is fantastic
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:41:05 PM] <Jerusha> That soon? Yeah!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:41:06 PM] <DesertRose> YAY!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:41:08 PM] <Evie> huzzah!!!!!!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:41:08 PM] <Laurna> awesome
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:41:15 PM] <the_Bee> any chance it will be out by Christmas?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:41:17 PM] * bynw needs a new deryni book to read
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:41:20 PM] <jemler> luck, luck. luck. luck.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:42:05 PM] <Evie> back
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:42:22 PM] <Evie> I knew you were close to done, but didn't know you were that close.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:42:26 PM] <DesertRose> WB, Evie.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:42:35 PM] <Jerusha> Whatever will you do when it is finished, KK?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:42:41 PM] <KK> We had a bit of an engineering adventure this afternoon.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:42:46 PM] <the_Bee> ??
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:42:50 PM] <Jerusha> Yes?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:43:03 PM] <Evie> We meaning you and Scott, or you and the characters?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:43:56 PM] <jemler> you figured out how to make a REAL Transfer Portal?!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:44:17 PM] <Evie> LOL! Don't we WISH, jemler!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:44:28 PM] <KK> I'd found some heavy nuts and bolts on the floor of the garage over the past few weeks, but didn't know where they'd dome from. Turns out the electric garage door appaatus was in the process of self-destructing, so Scott and I had to put it back together. If that last bolt had come out, and someone was under it when it came down, they could have been killed. Or the car could
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:44:28 PM] <KK> have been killed.g
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:44:43 PM] <KK> All better now, though, and didn't even had to replace the garage door.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:44:48 PM] <DesertRose> Holy cow.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:44:54 PM] <Evie> Wow, good save!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:45:03 PM] <Jerusha> Ouch. Ours did that, too.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:45:04 PM] <kirienne> Wow, that was not a fun adventure at all
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:45:09 PM] <Annie> Eep
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:45:13 PM] <jemler> maybe you need an excorsism
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:45:34 PM] <jemler> however you spell it!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:45:43 PM] <DesertRose> jemler: exorcism
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:45:49 PM] <KK> Well, it had been making these grinding noises for several weeks, and sort of coming down in fits and spurts. Had no idea it was so close to critical mass.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:46:01 PM] <KK> But disaster was averted without injury.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:46:12 PM] <kirienne> Yikes, I'm glad you were able to fix it
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:46:14 PM] <Evie> I saw a mini-exorcism kit online recently, but it was dollhouse scale rather than 1:6.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:46:14 PM] <Jerusha> Good thing, KK
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:46:29 PM] <jemler> good news, but not as good as a portal.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:47:20 PM] <Evie> I dunno, jemler...KK not getting taken out by her own garage door opener might be a bit better than finding out how to make a Portal. It does mean she's alive a bit longer and can get on that project next. ;-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:47:41 PM] <jemler> true. my bad.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:47:45 PM] <KK> Speaking of doll houses, I found one Friday in a charity shop, Barbie-scale, two stories, castle-like, $12. Shall I get it for you, Evie? It must disassemble to go flat-back. Could be customized for sets.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:48:08 PM] <Annie> She'll need a bigger house at this rate!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:48:12 PM] <KK> flat-pack
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:48:25 PM] <Evie> OMG. I am so tempted. Though we're still trying to work out where to put those ten new bookcases DH brought home two weeks ago. *sigh*
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:48:32 PM] <Evie> flat-packing is good, though....
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:48:41 PM] <Evie> *whimper* Get thee behind me, KK! :-D
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:48:43 PM] <Jerusha> You could put it on a bookcase
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:49:01 PM] <the_Bee> How large is Barbie-size?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:49:01 PM] <Evie> if it's Barbie sized, Jerusha, it's probably the size of a bookcase
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:49:02 PM] <KK> Well, the store is closing--rent went up--so it may not be around for long. So if you want it, let me know and I'll rescue it.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:49:27 PM] <Evie> let me take a look around to see where I can possibly stash it, and get back to you via email?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:49:44 PM] <DesertRose> :)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:49:53 PM] <KK> It looked to be about , maybe 3 ft long and about 2 ft tall, rooms about 12 x 12 inches or so.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:50:04 PM] <KK> OK.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:50:06 PM] <Evie> Bee, Barbies and Kens are 11.5 to 12 inches high. So a house made for them needs floors a little taller than that.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:50:09 PM] <Jerusha> Hard to pass up on
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:50:34 PM] <KK> Especially for only $12 plus postage.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:50:45 PM] <Evie> I may just end up converting an actual bookcase, though, since that usually works out better for room sizes. you can adjust ceilings higher as needed and make bigger rooms.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:50:51 PM] <Laurna> Take out a shelf or two and it will fit if it is only 12inchs deep\
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:51:04 PM] <Evie> a 12" by 12" space is only a 6 x 6 foot room in our scale, after all. Not a very big room.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:51:07 PM] <KK> True.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:51:14 PM] <jemler> you don't have to pay property tax?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:51:34 PM] <KK> Maybe 14-16 inches wide.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:52:03 PM] <Evie> I've actually considered turning our entertainment center into a doll castle once we have bookshelves along that wall. But that will require clearing out space to move it to first.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:52:24 PM] <Evie> but the wide area meant for a large television set would make a nice Great Hall.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:52:34 PM] <jemler> you know, if you don't keep the propertyup, you ciould be charged as a slum lady! :)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:52:36 PM] <KK> Converted bookshelves might actually work better. You could even cut a door or two.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:52:46 PM] <Jerusha> Television is over-rated :D
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:52:57 PM] <Evie> I've been saving up ideas on Pinterest
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:52:57 PM] <KK> Yes, unless it's Game of Thrones.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:53:13 PM] <jemler> or Once Upon a Time.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:53:15 PM] <Jerusha> There is that. And World Without End
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:53:22 PM] <KK> I've got to figure out how to use that--after the book is done.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:53:37 PM] <Evie> LOL! Oh, we still have a TV, but it's a flatscreen, so we don't need a two foot deep cabinet for it if a shelving unit that's only one foot deep will do
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:54:01 PM] <Evie> Pinterest is addictive, KK. I'll warn you now.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:54:14 PM] <jemler> has anyone bought a google chrome cast device?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:54:21 PM] <kirienne> I signed up for pintrest, but haven't yet figured out how to use it
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:54:23 PM] <Evie> You still need to learn how to use Facebook too. It will help with marketing your books
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:54:47 PM] <jemler> who here has a fb acct?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:54:49 PM] <Annie> I've got a couple of inspiration boards on Pinterest, but not much
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:54:51 PM] <the_Bee> ?me isn't sure what Pinterest is.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:54:54 PM] <Evie> PM me, kirienne, I can share the basics on how to set up Pinterest
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:54:56 PM] <kirienne> I'm on facebook
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:54:57 PM] <Annie> I deleted my FB account
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:55:14 PM] <Annie> loathe it with a passion, but I love Google+ to bits
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:55:36 PM] <Jerusha> I'm a hermit, so I don't do any of theat
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:55:39 PM] <Jerusha> that
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:55:53 PM] <KK> I'm on facebook, but under another name--just so I can see what my friends are posting. I still have a lot to learn.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:55:53 PM] <bynw> I would drop FB myself save that too many old friends are on it
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:56:07 PM] * bynw likes Twitter best
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:56:07 PM] <Evie> Bee, it's a website where you can create boards (basically, pages) where you "pin" links and photos of things that you are interested in, and others can check out those interests. you can put them in categories, and also follow other people's boards unless they have made them private boards.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:56:19 PM] <Evie> it's good for hobbyists, among others
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:56:22 PM] <the_Bee> My chief FB activity is Words with Friends.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:56:39 PM] <Annie> You can attach a page to a user account, KK, and people can't trace you back to your original account, but you maintain it from there
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:56:49 PM] <Annie> I had one for a business, till I sold the business
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:57:07 PM] <Evie> I'm on FB under my online name and my real one, but I only check it sporadically, and mainly if I get an email saying someone has posted to one of my FB pages.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:57:36 PM] <Annie> I'm mostly on Twitter and Google+
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:57:49 PM] <the_Bee> ONe of my FB friends just became a father.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:57:53 PM] <jemler> no twitter
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:57:56 PM] <Evie> KK, Facebook lets you have a fan page that is separate from a personal page.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:58:02 PM] <Jerusha> Prince William?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:58:04 PM] <DesertRose> I'm on Google+, Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:58:12 PM] <jemler> lol jerusha
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:58:13 PM] <Annie> never got Tumblr
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:58:13 PM] <the_Bee> LOL nope
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:58:14 PM] <DesertRose> But I really only use Tumblr and Facebook.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:58:23 PM] <kirienne> I have twitter, but haven't figured out how to use that either, i find FaceBook easiest to use
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:58:28 PM] <Annie> stared at it a few times, but didn't really understand what it was about
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:58:35 PM] <jemler> tumblr, is that for bartenders?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:58:50 PM] <Jerusha> Or rock collectore
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:58:57 PM] <Annie> get on G+!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:58:58 PM] <Jerusha> collectors. Dang rented fingers
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:59:16 PM] <DesertRose> It's mostly for sharing pictures and gifs.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [07:59:46 PM] <DesertRose> (Tumblr, that is.)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:00:00 PM] <Evie> OK, photos like this is why I love Pinterest: http://th04.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/i/2009/348/4/e/Viking_girl_by_VendelRus.jpg I never would have found that online had it not been for Pinterest, but now i can pin it to my Historical Inspirations board, and if I can learn some woodworking skill, make a mini-version someday.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:00:07 PM] <jemler> i don't like these keyboards. i learned the alphabet from the beginning, and they rearranged the letters!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:00:21 PM] <bynw> hey Annie, what's your twitter handle?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:00:32 PM] <Annie> @ACSmyth
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:01:16 PM] <KK> Have to find out about twitter, too.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:01:32 PM] <jemler> the only thing i got from twitter was a cousin in l.a.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:01:34 PM] <Annie> if you were on G+ you could have watched me being publicly edited. That was traumatic!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:01:52 PM] <Annie> Evie can maybe guess how traumatic that was for me! :s
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:01:53 PM] <Evie> Bee, you were asking about Pinterest. Here's an example page...these are the boards I've made: http://pinterest.com/edelacourt/boards/
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:02:01 PM] <Jerusha> Yikes, Annie
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:02:05 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:02:17 PM] <Annie> followed you back, bynw :)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:02:20 PM] <Evie> Google Drive or Google Docs, Annie?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:02:41 PM] <Evie> That's what I used when editing Laurna's fanfic. Also for DR's.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:03:03 PM] <Evie> It wasn't playing nice for Jerusha, though, so we had to stick to MS Word and the comments feature.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:03:07 PM] <Annie> neither - if she had any queries for me, she posted them to public
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:03:18 PM] <Evie> LOL! Oh dear.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:03:28 PM] <Annie> then we worked out what to do publicly between us, so other people could see the editing process
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:03:45 PM] <Jerusha> Very brave, Annie
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:03:47 PM] <Annie> the people watching apparently found it interesting!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:03:49 PM] <Evie> And you survived. I'm so proud. ;-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:03:50 PM] <the_Bee> Thanks, Evie
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:04:13 PM] <Annie> you think my skin's toughening up any yet? ;)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:04:40 PM] <Evie> You are still writing, and the complaints that your writing is all "pants" or "rubbish" are less frequent, so yeah, I'd say you're a bit tougher now.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:05:59 PM] <Evie> And you've stopped cringing and threatening to give it all up for good whenever you think something falls short of perfect.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:06:13 PM] <kirienne> :-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:06:26 PM] <Jerusha> I hope you don't give it up for good, Annie
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:06:27 PM] <DesertRose> Have we lost KK?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:06:48 PM] <Evie> Is it another inconveniently timed phone call again, KK?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:06:57 PM] <Evie> or did the garage door opener fall after all?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:07:03 PM] <jemler> bynw posted kk comment re end of month on fb
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:07:08 PM] <KK> Nope, I was just taking a look at Evie's small things on pinterest. Fascinating.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:07:26 PM] <bynw> jemler: i actually posted it on Twitter, just my twitter auto posts to FB
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:08:19 PM] <Evie> So if half the known Deryni-reading universe turns out at the bookstores come August 31, forgetting there's a delay between submission and publication, we'll blame bynw.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:08:33 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:08:41 PM] <KK> Yep. I'd guess it will be a spring release.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:09:03 PM] <Evie> But it would be great if you had the book ready to turn in before DragonCon. That would give you a good reason to celebrate and relax.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:09:19 PM] <Evie> Not that I'd get to party with you. *pout*
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:09:23 PM] <KK> Form your mouth to God's ears!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:09:27 PM] <DesertRose> :)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:09:42 PM] <CaChief> After forty years I guess I have some catch up reading to do.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:09:43 PM] <Evie> I talk to God all the time, so if THAT's what it takes.... ;-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:09:54 PM] <Annie> I'm going to World Fantasy Con in less than 3 months
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:09:59 PM] <Jerusha> Whatever works, Evie!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:09:59 PM] <KK> From
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:10:10 PM] <KK> Where is that, Annie?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:10:12 PM] <kirienne> Annie, have fun
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:10:23 PM] <Annie> in Brighton, East Sussex
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:10:46 PM] <Annie> it's almost never over here, and the tickets sold out really soon after I got mine, so I'm chuffed
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:10:46 PM] <Evie> yeah, CaChief, KK has written a fair few stories in the past forty. :-D
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:10:52 PM] <KK> Ah. I went to the Worldcon in Brighton, must have been 1987 or so?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:11:17 PM] <KK> Just a little, CaChief.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:11:33 PM] <KK> But you were busy catching bad guys!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:11:45 PM] <Evie> and she was busy writing bad guys.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:11:55 PM] <Evie> and good ones too.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:12:02 PM] <KK> Yep, but he couldn't catch those. ;-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:12:11 PM] * bynw is only making it to 1 con this year and KK wont be there ...
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:12:49 PM] * kirienne wishes she had $$ to go to cons like she did many, many years ago. Too many bills now
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:12:51 PM] <Evie> there is a very slim chance we might make Dragoncon this year, but it's so slim that I'm not really counting on it.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:12:53 PM] <KK> I'll be at the last Darkovercon Thanksgiving weekend. After that, I understand it's going to be steam punk themed.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:12:57 PM] <Annie> I must have been at that 1987 one
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:13:34 PM] <DesertRose> Aw, Darkover's going Steampunk?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:13:47 PM] <KK> That's where Deborah Turner Harris and I met, introduced by Betty Ballantine, who thought we should know one another. That was the start of a beautiful collaboration.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:14:05 PM] <Annie> I went to loads of cons around then, and I definitely went to one Worldcon, but the previous UK one was 1979 and I'd have been a bit young then
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:14:08 PM] <CaChief> Well, after 42 years in the business I figured it was time for a break and take stewardship of the ranch.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:14:23 PM] <KK> Jaelle passed away earlier this year, so changes are inevitable if a con that weekend is to survive.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:14:27 PM] <Annie> we have Worldcon here next year, in London
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:14:36 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, that's sad, KK.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:14:41 PM] <Annie> :(
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:14:49 PM] <the_Bee> :( for Jaelle
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:14:49 PM] <Annie> I always wanted to get to a Darkover
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:15:00 PM] <Evie> My first con ever was the 1986 one in Atlanta. I actually was sharing crash space in the same hotel room that DH was in, though we didn't figure that out until we met again a year later.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:15:25 PM] <Jerusha> Cool, Evie
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:15:59 PM] <KK> Do you run cattle, CaChief
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:16:03 PM] <KK> ?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:16:31 PM] <Annie> my first con was 1980 I think
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:16:59 PM] <DesertRose> I accidentally gate-crashed an Ancient City Con a few years ago.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:17:14 PM] <CaChief> No, three horses, eight dogs, eight cats, a rabbit and a possum.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:17:58 PM] <kirienne> LOL DR
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:18:02 PM] <KK> Good grief! That's not a ranch, it's a menagerie. I'll fold on 2 dogs and 5 cats.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:18:28 PM] <Evie> Wow. Nice collection there
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:18:40 PM] <Jerusha> The possum survives the dogs and cats?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:19:41 PM] <KK> I don't think most sensible cats would mess with a possum. But my two hounds did in a possum last summer.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:19:49 PM] <Evie> I was a starving grad student at that Worldcon in Atlanta. I could only afford to go because a friend of a friend found out he couldn't go at the last minute, so I was able to "buy" his membership by promising to go to the Christian Fandom party and take photos of his friends at the party.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:20:05 PM] <CaChief> In the early eighties I had two huskies named Kelson and Mirisha.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:20:06 PM] <KK> Ah, a spy.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:20:15 PM] <Evie> I had to come up with money for my meals and hitch a ride with some people who offered me crash space, but the con membership was free
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:20:23 PM] <DesertRose> Fun, Evie.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:21:18 PM] <Evie> I had a kitten named Evaine once, back around that same time period (mid to late 1980s), but she came to an unfortunate end. :-(
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:21:33 PM] <Jerusha> Oh dear
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:21:36 PM] <KK> Huskies, eh? We've got a husky rescue facility just up the road from us, in Verona,VA. THey also board some Bassets for the group I work with.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:23:13 PM] <KK> So I get to see the huskies every time I drop off or pick up there. (I transport.)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:23:35 PM] <the_Bee> rehab work?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:24:30 PM] <KK> For the huskies? They try to rehome them, but they're a difficult breed unless you've got space and time to work with them. Not like other dogs, I understand.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:24:51 PM] <the_Bee> I meant for the bassetts
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:25:46 PM] <the_Bee> do you do rehab work?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:26:06 PM] <CaChief> Now, the kingpin, who is reclining next to me, is Baron Von Lupp Bad Marienburg, a german shepherd who retired when I did. Yes, the huskies were given away because the did not like the kids.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:26:09 PM] <KK> We pull them from high-kill shelters and find new homes for them. We get a lot of dogs out of WV, where they see to breed a lot of them, but if they won't hunt, they don't want to know. One of our dogs came out of WV.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:27:05 PM] <KK> Was the Baron a service dog?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:28:38 PM] <CaChief> Yes, he is my dog. I was just getting him into training when I decided to pull the pin.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:29:03 PM] <Evie> My grandparents ended up with several dogs because their vet knew they lived on a farm with lots of room to roam, and that my Granddad was always on the lookout for a good hunting dog, no matter what breed, but if they couldn't hunt, he'd still keep them as house pups. So he had a pretty big menagerie at one point.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:29:22 PM] <Evie> My Chihuahua ended up being one of his best "hunting buddies," though. :-D
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:30:40 PM] <Jerusha> A Chihuahua?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:30:49 PM] * the_Bee tries to picture a chihuahua chasing a deer.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:30:55 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:31:00 PM] <Jerusha> Maybe a chipmunk
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:31:10 PM] <KK> I wasn't really a dog person until we got Oswald of happy memory. But he sort of grew on me, and I got hooked on Bassets as a result.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:31:10 PM] <Laurna> My cavaliers are really good at keeping the squires out of the yard the herons out of the fishpond. lol big hunters their not.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:31:13 PM] <kirienne> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:31:28 PM] <KK> Laurna, you have several?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:31:29 PM] <DesertRose> Aw.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:31:54 PM] <the_Bee> Are they all squires or are some of them pages?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:32:00 PM] <Laurna> I meant squirrels
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:32:03 PM] <jemler> by squires, do you mean squirrels?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:32:09 PM] <jemler> i guess so.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:32:14 PM] <Laurna> OOpps sorry
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:32:36 PM] <Laurna> I have 5 and a few of my moms dogs in the house too
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:32:40 PM] <KK> (I'd figured that out! But I was also thinking about squires, and wondering how you got one, and why you'd want to keep him out of the yard.)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:33:23 PM] <kirienne> ;-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:33:27 PM] <jemler> instead of tending to your armor, does poluish the jewelry?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:33:29 PM] <Laurna> I could really use a squire around the house. lost to do
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:33:36 PM] <Laurna> lots
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:33:42 PM] <Evie> Rabbit and squirrel hunting, Bee. Though Andre might have tried to take on a deer. He thought he was bigger than teacup sized. :D
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:34:07 PM] <jemler> just get a house elf!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:34:31 PM] * Evie dies laughing at squires in the yard....
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:34:47 PM] <jemler> rip evie
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:34:55 PM] <Evie> My husband is a knight. I could stand to have some squires in my yard doing some landscaping!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:34:55 PM] <Annie> for some reason, my brain went, "Talking of house elves, where's Alkari?"
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:35:02 PM] <Annie> I think I need to go to sleep!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:35:12 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Annie.

[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:36:15 PM] <Evie> Laurna, is your yard squire acquainted with Sister Disarray?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:36:47 PM] <Laurna> I should introduce them shouldn't I. lol
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:37:40 PM] <Evie> For those not in the know, Sister Disarray is what happens when you try to type Sister Desiree, but your spell checker has other ideas. :-D
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:37:52 PM] <kirienne> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:38:08 PM] <Laurna> And my bad spelling
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:38:11 PM] <KK> Ah, the infamous spellchecker. They do have minds of their own, don't they?

[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:38:16 PM] <Jerusha> Works for me - she probably lives in my house
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:38:24 PM] <Evie> She turned up in one of Laurna's early drafts, and I asked her if she meant to have a nun who took on a religious name indicating she was disorderly.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:38:28 PM] <CaChief> Thought it was a cute play on words.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:38:47 PM] <kirienne> It's a good idea for a character name ;-)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:39:11 PM] <Jerusha> Has lots of potential
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:39:13 PM] <Evie> I keep imagining a nun with her veil askew and dust bunnies caught in her hem
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:39:19 PM] <KK> lol
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:39:22 PM] <DesertRose> ROFL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:39:28 PM] <Laurna> No she is the spirit in my house every night sense that makes a mess.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:39:31 PM] <Jerusha> tripping over her rosary
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:39:59 PM] <Evie> I think if I had a Favorite Typoes list, that one would make it into the top 10.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:40:05 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:40:23 PM] <Laurna> It was a very long list as I recall
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:41:15 PM] <Evie> But that was a particularly memorable one
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:41:41 PM] <Laurna> Oh the embarrassment. ROFL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:42:01 PM] <jemler> we just blame Henry for things like that.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:42:13 PM] <the_Bee> Henry?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:42:14 PM] <Jerusha> Henry?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:42:29 PM] <jemler> the family ghost.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:43:07 PM] <jemler> when the door opens for no reason, we say "Hi Henry"
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:43:34 PM] <kirienne> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:43:58 PM] <the_Bee> My mom had an invisible boyfriend named Elmer.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:44:05 PM] <Evie> when our doors open for seemingly no reason, usually Gigi is behind it.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:44:25 PM] <Evie> So it's more like "Hi Gigi, where are you hiding?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:44:35 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, it's usually a cat-caused phenomenon in my family too.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:44:53 PM] <Evie> also, when small items get moved around the house, it's usually due to Gigi. We've caught her at it several times.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:44:53 PM] <KK> Whe I think of Elmer, I think of Fudd, or maybe Elmer gantry. Don't think I've ever actually met anyone named Elmer, though.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:45:18 PM] <jemler> lots of Emlers, no Elmers! :)
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:45:19 PM] <Evie> I think I had a relative named Elmer, but back in my grandparents' generation or earlier.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:45:24 PM] <kirienne> I don't think I have either
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:45:34 PM] <DesertRose> Merlin has a habit of stealing makeup brushes and moving them around the house.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:45:41 PM] <the_Bee> He had red hair, geen eyes, cross-eyed, bowlegs and buck teeth.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:45:55 PM] <jemler> real ladiez man!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:46:30 PM] <the_Bee> Whe nwe passed a plate past an empty chair, we said "Excuse me, Elmer."
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:46:32 PM] <Evie> For a moment I misread that and thought that was Merlin's description!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:46:53 PM] <CaChief> It time to tend the evening feedings. KK, the email is "cf(the last name)@hotmail.com". And, I bid all here a fond "Good evening".
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:46:55 PM] <kirienne> LOL, Bee
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:47:04 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, no, Merlin is a little tuxedo kitten, Manx with no tail.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:47:10 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, thanks for coming, CaChief.

[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:51:08 PM] <KK> DR, I didn't know Manx cats came in tuxedo. He must be adorable.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:51:23 PM] <DesertRose> He is very cute, yes.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:51:43 PM] <KK> How old?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:51:49 PM] <DesertRose> Nine months.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:51:57 PM] <KK> Ah, a catling, then.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:52:09 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, older than a kitten but not quite an adult cat.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:52:12 PM] <KK> And no tail at all?
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:52:12 PM] <Evie> that's about how old we think Luke was when he turned up
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:52:18 PM] <DesertRose> Nope, no tail at al.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:52:19 PM] <DesertRose> *all
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:52:42 PM] <KK> He must look a bit like a black bear with gloves and spats.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:53:11 PM] <DesertRose> Kind of, yes.

[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:53:59 PM] <the_Bee> Hi Obsidian
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:54:02 PM] <DesertRose> There's a pic of him as a little kitten on RC.com, but I don't have a recent pic of him because he's a real pain to photograph unless he's asleep.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:54:08 PM] <Evie> Gigi isn't a Manx, but she was born with just a tiny stub of a tail. It's really cute when she gets excited; she swirls it around like a little helicopter blade.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:54:10 PM] <kirienne> Hi Obsidian
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:54:14 PM] <KK> We had a black cat when I was a kid, who had to have his tail amputated except for about a 2 inch stub, and when he'd bush it, it looked like he'd sat on a black powderpuff. Very cute.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:54:16 PM] <Evie> Hi Obsidian
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:54:22 PM] <DesertRose> LOL

[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:54:39 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Obsidian
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:54:48 PM] <DesertRose> Merlin has no tail at all and was born that way.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:54:49 PM] <Evie> LOL! Yeah, I would guess that Gigi's tail is around 1.5 to 2 inches. Certainly no longer than that.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:54:49 PM] <KK> Helo, Obsidian.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:54:52 PM] <DesertRose> He also rabbit hops.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:55:07 PM] <Evie> that sounds insanely cute, DR
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:55:22 PM] <KK> Ah, the cuteness!
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:55:25 PM] <DesertRose> He is.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:55:48 PM] <DesertRose> My stepdad is his favorite person, because my stepdad likes to play.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:55:53 PM] <KK> I got treats for the Bassets this week: half-hooves stuffed with peanutbutter or cheese.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:56:10 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, that sounds like a good dog treat.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:56:14 PM] <Obsidian> Evie, I address bynw as Sire
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:56:25 PM] <Evie> Yeah, I eventually worked that out
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:56:41 PM] <Obsidian> k
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:56:51 PM] <KK> Booker finally took Warner's hoof away, and was carrying both of them around in his mouth. I've seen him do that before, with bones, and with long, slinky toys; gathers them up and carries them around.
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:56:58 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:57:04 PM] <Evie> Gigi does that with small furry toys
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:57:13 PM] <Evie> and with other items too, on occasion
[Sunday, August 04, 2013] [08:57:14 PM] Nick Obsidian is now known as TheDeryni.
"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.)
