[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:09:33 PM] <Jerusha> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:09:34 PM] <Annie> hi KK
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:09:35 PM] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:09:40 PM] <Alkari> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:09:45 PM] <Evie> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:09:48 PM] <KK> Hello, people. How's everyone tonight?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:09:57 PM] <jemler> i'm me
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:06 PM] <Alkari> Awake and on second mug of coffee! :)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:09 PM] <the_Bee> Ok here.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:13 PM] <Jerusha> I'm on vacation :)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:14 PM] <DesertRose> Doing all right.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:16 PM] <Evie> Present and accounted for
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:18 PM] <kirienne> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:23 PM] <KK> Lucky Jerusha!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:29 PM] <Annie> sleepy! But then what's new?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:34 PM] <Jerusha> It's only a week but I
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:37 PM] <kirienne> I'm doing well :-)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:39 PM] <Evie> And I'm going to DragonCon! *dancey feet*
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:41 PM] <Jerusha> I'll take it
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:45 PM] <Alkari> The dificulties of time zones, Annie
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:49 PM] <DesertRose> Yay, Evie! :)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:57 PM] <Jerusha> You are going after all, Evie?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:10:57 PM] <kirienne> Yay, Evie!! I'm glad you get to go
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:11:11 PM] <Alkari> when is it Evie?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:11:16 PM] <KK> Looking forward to hanging out with Evie and the Littles.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:11:28 PM] <the_Bee> Do you know which mini-deryni you'll be taking?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:11:42 PM] <Evie> yes. DS is getting enough money back for his school needs, so we don't have to worry about that anymore. So it's off to DragonCon the last day of August/first weekend of Sept.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:12:05 PM] <the_Bee> Labor Day weekend?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:12:09 PM] <Jerusha> Excellent
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:12:13 PM] <Evie> I don't know yet, Bee. KK, do you have a preference which Mini-Deryni get to visit you? I don't have room to bring them all.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:12:37 PM] <Evie> yes, Bee. That's the traditional D*Con weekend now. It used to be earlier in the year.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:12:42 PM] <KK> How many can you bring?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:12:47 PM] <Jerusha> I have a picture of the mini-Deryni going "pick me! pick me!"
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:13:09 PM] <Evie> At most, two cases, but they'll most likely be traveling on the floorboard under my knees, so I'd rather not stretch to three.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:13:11 PM] <Alkari> You need a mobile Transfer Portal to get them
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:13:21 PM] <Evie> Cases hold 5 figures comfortably
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:13:28 PM] <Alkari> Duncan will go of course
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:13:31 PM] <Evie> Sometimes 6 if they are small and I turn them on their sides
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:13:40 PM] <Jerusha> Alaric too?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:13:45 PM] <Evie> Yes, I'm inseparable from Duncan, but besides him, I mean. :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:13:45 PM] <KK> Well, then, two cases shold be fine.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:13:50 PM] <Annie> squeeze up there, boys. Need to fit Richenda in somehow...
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:13:56 PM] <the_Bee> Do they complain about being cramped?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:14:03 PM] <Evie> Derry would like to see you, I think, since he wasn't around yet last year
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:14:09 PM] <jemler> not with richenda around
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:14:30 PM] <Evie> They don't tend to complain much, but sometimes John Nivard's head falls off if he's stressed. ;-)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:14:31 PM] <Jerusha> "Move aside, that's MY wife!"
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:14:35 PM] <Alkari> Richenda will be safe enough with Alaric to look after her ;)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:14:59 PM] <KK> LOL re Nivard!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:15:08 PM] <Alkari> That IS stressed!!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:15:12 PM] <Evie> yeah, I've still got to fix that neck joint. :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:15:13 PM] <Annie> lol
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:15:21 PM] <kirienne> Poor Father nivard...losing his head due to stress.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:15:35 PM] <jemler> i just lost my hair.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:15:45 PM] <Evie> At least he doesn't lose his hair...which he could do, since it's a wig. :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:15:46 PM] <the_Bee> "If you can keep your head when all about you...."
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:16:09 PM] <Evie> When a wig is more secure than a neck joint, you know the neck joint needs fixing.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:16:14 PM] <kirienne> LOL
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:16:26 PM] <Jerusha> Poor Father Nivard
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:16:38 PM] <Alkari> Perhaps he's been arguing with the Lord High Executioner
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:16:55 PM] <KK> (shades of Mikado)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:16:56 PM] <kirienne> LOL
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:17:00 PM] <Evie> You haven't seen Rothana in person either, but she still doesn't have medieval clothing
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:17:08 PM] <jemler> should my head come off here, or here?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:17:08 PM] <Evie> and for that matter, she's still wearing a bindi
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:17:19 PM] <KK> Maybe you can sew some between now and then.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:17:33 PM] <DesertRose> That's not much time.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:17:37 PM] <KK> Maybe even in the car.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:17:42 PM] <Evie> Maybe. I've been trying to get the house in enough order that I can do guilt-free crafting again
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:17:48 PM] <jemler> yes, let DD drive
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:18:05 PM] <Evie> It helps that I have a new storage cabinet and spent all day yesterday reorganizing it
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:18:18 PM] <kirienne> new cabinets always help
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:18:35 PM] <jemler> all those bookcases?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:18:36 PM] <Jerusha> Is DS's new basement residence ready yet?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:18:50 PM] <Evie> Oh, and I posted some new photos to the Action Figure thread, but they're dark and grainy, and you can only see the top of the bookcase that's serving as the "floor" for the shot.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:18:54 PM] <Annie> reorganising storage is great. I can spend hours just doing that.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:19:21 PM] <Jerusha> I need to do that
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:19:21 PM] <KK> Me too.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:19:27 PM] <kirienne> So can I Annie
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:19:31 PM] <the_Bee> I can spend hours NOT reorganizing anything.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:19:32 PM] <Evie> Nowhere close to ready, Jerusha. DH's van broke down again, which we need in order to shift everything in the basement either to the thrift shop or to temp storage so we can finish up the basement
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:19:47 PM] <Evie> LOL, Bee!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:19:48 PM] <jemler> annie, report to kk and jerushas places.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:19:57 PM] <Annie> :)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:20:21 PM] <kirienne> Before I go back to work, I might try to get at least one closet re-organized *again*, but I don't have the energy yet to do as much as I'd like to do.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:20:30 PM] <Evie> I do much better at creating chaos than order. Maybe that's why I have such trouble creating and maintaining order when I need to. *sigh*
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:20:40 PM] <DesertRose> kirienne: you take it easy and only do what you can.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:20:51 PM] <Jerusha> No need to rush, Kirienne
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:20:53 PM] <Alkari> You sounds as if you need one of those 'renovation rescue' TV show people
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:21:05 PM] <jemler> are you ok kirienne?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:21:05 PM] <KK> I like your idea of setting up rooms in some of the new shelves. Seems like that would work well.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:21:10 PM] <Jerusha> They would throw out my entire house
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:21:12 PM] <kirienne> I am. I vacuumed yesterday, and although my apartment is fairly small, that wore me out for the day.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:21:28 PM] <KK> Vacuuming is hard work.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:21:29 PM] <kirienne> I'm fine jemler, just still recovering from the chemo
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:21:31 PM] <Evie> My basement could use that, Alkari. Or at least if they want to lend me their trucks and manpower, that would be welcome. They can leave the camera crews behind. :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:21:37 PM] <the_Bee> Is your recovery going as well as you hoped?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:21:57 PM] <Alkari> Has the chemo finished kirienne?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:22:16 PM] <Evie> Vacuuming has a high energy cost. Maybe you can just do one room at a time?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:22:20 PM] <jemler> sounds worse than my dialysis
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:22:32 PM] <kirienne> yes, I'm sure the state disability would like me to be back at work so they can stop paying, but my body isn't ready yet...not until after the radiation, which should happen in September
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:22:57 PM] <kirienne> Evie, I tried to do just one room, and got carried away
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:23:02 PM] <Jerusha> The state will get over it
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:23:05 PM] <Alkari> Radiation can be nasty - how much do you need to have?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:23:47 PM] <kirienne> My surgeon would like me to have 3 sessions of radiation over a 10 day period, I meet withthe radiology oncologist next Friday for a consult
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:24:13 PM] <Alkari> That shouldn't be TOO bad.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:24:29 PM] <kirienne> nope
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:24:43 PM] <KK> But the chemo did what it was supposed to do?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:24:46 PM] <Alkari> If you have to have lots of doses, you can get skin burns
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:24:46 PM] <the_Bee> How much did you have, Alkari?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:25:00 PM] <Alkari> I had 25 sessions over 6-7 weeks
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:25:03 PM] <kirienne> They say I'll be even more tired than I am now, but other than that it shouldn't be *too* bad
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:25:14 PM] <Jerusha> Oh my, that sounds like a lot, Alkari
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:25:18 PM] <Evie> wow
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:25:23 PM] <kirienne> that is a lot, Alkari
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:25:45 PM] <the_Bee> If you're alive to complain about how bad it is, the doctors will say it's not too bad.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:25:51 PM] <DesertRose> L
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:25:57 PM] <Sarah> I agree with Bee
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:25:57 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Bee.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:25:57 PM] <Jerusha> True
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:26:24 PM] <Alkari> I wasn't tired, and kept working - just got bad skin burns like sunburn that were very painful for a couple of weeks
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:26:33 PM] <DesertRose> Ouch.

[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:26:47 PM] <Sarah> Did the docs say what kind of lotion or anything you could use to help?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:26:51 PM] <Sarah> Hey Shiral
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:26:51 PM] <kirienne> Yep, KK chemo did it's job. I have to get another CT Scan on Wednesday, and have the cancer marker test as part of blood work tomorrow, but so far so good. I see teh clinical trials doc for the last time, this coming Tuesday. They'll call me with results of CT scan
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:26:52 PM] <DesertRose> Hey Shiral.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:26:53 PM] <jemler> hi shiral
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:26:53 PM] <Jerusha> Sunburn without a vacation isn't fair
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:26:54 PM] <the_Bee> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:26:56 PM] * Evie waves at Shiral

[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:27:20 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:27:23 PM] <DesertRose> How's the house-buying process, Shiral?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:27:24 PM] <Shiral> I wasn't able to connect with my regular computer
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:27:30 PM] <KK> Hi, condo-owner!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:27:32 PM] <Sarah> I agree with Jerusha, no sun but sunburn sucks
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:27:37 PM] <Alkari> You have to be careful with skin creams while on radiation
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:27:43 PM] <kirienne> Have you started packing yet?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:27:51 PM] <Shiral> I got my loan approval notice this past week
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:27:56 PM] <DesertRose> Excellent. :)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:27:57 PM] <Alkari> Yay!!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:28:00 PM] <the_Bee> Good!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:28:01 PM] <Jerusha> Yay!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:28:04 PM] <Sarah> W00t!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:28:13 PM] <kirienne> well, if I get burns, it will not be visable, LOL
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:28:15 PM] <Evie> So while I'm at the con, Shiral will be doing last-minute packing.... :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:28:36 PM] <KK> She hs three bears doing her moving. :-)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:28:39 PM] <kirienne> Yippeeeee, Shiral
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:28:41 PM] <Jerusha> Are you moving yourself, Shiral?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:28:48 PM] <Evie> Is she Goldilocks?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:28:49 PM] <Shiral> I went through my coat closet and my bedroom closet yesterday. Going through my bureau drawers today.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:28:54 PM] <Alkari> Maybe the Deryni who don
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:28:55 PM] <jemler> shiral, just for fun, go to evies place and pack! :)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:29:04 PM] <Alkari> t go to the Con could go and help Shiral :)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:29:04 PM] <KK> Tossing lots of stuff, I
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:29:13 PM] <KK> 'll bet, after nearly 20 years in the same place.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:29:21 PM] <Shiral> I'm packing most stuff myself, but I'm hiring movers to get it there
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:29:30 PM] <Alkari> Sensible!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:29:47 PM] <Jerusha> We moved ourselves the last time, and I now consider myself a professional packer
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:29:52 PM] <kirienne> Movers can lift all the stuff

[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:29:52 PM] <Evie> That brings back loads of memories. Navy brat, had to move every 3 years or so.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:29:53 PM] <Shiral> some things I'll take over in my cart
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:29:56 PM] <DesertRose> Hey DF64.

[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:30:32 PM] <Annie> we packed, but got movers to do the shifting. They said they'd never moved so many boxes of books before.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:30:37 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:30:40 PM] <Evie> LOL

[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:31:21 PM] <KK> Are you at home or at work, Shiral?

[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:31:38 PM] <imladris> did too years ago.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:31:52 PM] <KK> Ah. Maybe you've already packed up something vital, that allowed you to connect the usual way.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:32:01 PM] <Moses> to, too, two, or tutu
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:32:05 PM] <Evie> Our movers would have had the same complaint when we moved to our present house, except that DH and I didn't hire movers, we just recruited our SCA friends into helping out.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:32:08 PM] <the_Bee> Has Dmitri pulled off any escapes lately?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:32:24 PM] <Evie> This is Alabama. Friends have pickup trucks and trailers. :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:32:25 PM] <DesertRose> I haven't ever had movers do the work.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:32:46 PM] <kirienne> Well, SCA folks are used to loading and unloading and packing, LOL
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:32:50 PM] <Shiral> It's really hot today, and I need air circulating
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:32:52 PM] <DesertRose> I've always either had to move myself, or had to bribe friends with beer and food to help.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:33:04 PM] <Jerusha> Beer usually works
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:33:04 PM] <KK> The new place has AC, right?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:33:05 PM] <imladris> got my Darkover airline and hotel reservations.... the site is still down for Darkover tickets.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:33:08 PM] <Shiral> no
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:33:19 PM] <KK> Ack
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:33:26 PM] <DF64> 12:(
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:33:34 PM] <Evie> I did have six burly men swear they would never move our dining room furniture again. Years later, we discovered it could have come apart for moving, but we didn't know that at the time.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:33:36 PM] <KK> At least gt a window unit.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:33:42 PM] <the_Bee> When I first moved to Boston, members of my church helped me move. After that I had to hire someone.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:33:46 PM] <DesertRose> DF and I are in Florida. We can't imagine life without a/c.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:33:52 PM] <Shiral> but since I can't even go into it, That's not a problem as of this moment
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:33:54 PM] <Evie> When it got moved back out, it only took DH and one other person to bring it out in pieces.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:34:12 PM] <imladris> didn't have AC when I was little, in Florida...
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:34:17 PM] <Alkari> I have never had air con. Just have a ceiling fan in my BR my place now
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:34:20 PM] <kirienne> I can't imagine life without AC either
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:34:34 PM] <Jerusha> AC is good, even in Canada
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:34:36 PM] <DesertRose> :)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:34:51 PM] <KK> I didn't have it either, but I think it wasn't as hot then. Or maybe we were just unspoiled.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:34:51 PM] <the_Bee> No AC here, but I live up north . fan for summer
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:35:02 PM] <Shiral> I can't have a window unit according to the HOA
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:35:04 PM] <Annie> air con? What's air con? :P
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:35:23 PM] <Shiral> But I'll be installing ceiling fans
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:35:26 PM] <DF64> 12air conditioning
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:35:27 PM] <Alkari> I just shut up the wes facing windows during the day, and open everything up once sun goes down, and I get good cross ventilation
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:35:29 PM] <Annie> oh yeah, it's that thing you need when you get hot weather
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:35:32 PM] <KK> Could you install one of those Mitsubishi units that goes into the wall?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:35:34 PM] <Evie> Actually, in Alabama this year it's much cooler than normal rather than hot. We had a day or two this week that was under 70F...at noontime!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:35:47 PM] <DesertRose> Holy cow. I wish, Evie. :)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:35:48 PM] <Evie> In August!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:35:54 PM] <KK> We've also had a cool, wet sumer.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:36:00 PM] <imladris> we we not as spoiled.. and we had jalousies
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:36:05 PM] <Jerusha> It went down to 10C last night; very cool
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:36:05 PM] <Alkari> WE are getting the 'hot' then - it is mid winter and average temps here this month have been 20C or more!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:36:08 PM] <DesertRose> We've had a moderate, wet summer.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:36:11 PM] <the_Bee> August has been cooler than average here too.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:36:14 PM] <Shiral> I have a lot of things I need to figure out.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:36:26 PM] <Alkari> I was looking at my winter jackets and coats that have just sat there unworn for the entire season
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:36:34 PM] <DesertRose> Although it's been REALLY muggy lately.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:36:36 PM] <kirienne> It's been pretty hot here the last few days, and muggy, we got rain last night, but it stayed hot.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:36:37 PM] <Moses> imladris, do you mean jacuzzis?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:36:55 PM] <KK> Yes, we've had more humidity here, too.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:36:56 PM] <Shiral> here, also...until the weekend when I planned to do lots of hard work!:P
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:37:10 PM] <imladris> no... the windows.. that KK and I had when we were littlle
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:37:10 PM] <DF64> 12humidity is a killer
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:37:15 PM] <imladris> opened as slats.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:37:25 PM] <KK> Yep, we had them.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:37:26 PM] <Alkari> I have been wandering around in short sleeves this last week or so
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:37:37 PM] <imladris> and gave almost floor to ceiling ventilation
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:37:48 PM] <Alkari> Oh, they are great, Imladris
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:37:49 PM] <imladris> unfortunately.....
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:37:59 PM] <Evie> KK, what do you think about this style of diamond-paned windows for Duncan's study? (Look over the stairs) http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/35/67/3b/35673b7dac74951eec7046f3137276c8.jpg
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:38:02 PM] <imladris> that didn't keep out the "palmetto bugs"
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:38:06 PM] <DesertRose> EWWWW!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:38:12 PM] <Sarah> KK, my grandmother has a glass goor that opened like that when I was little
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:38:15 PM] <Jerusha> Ugh!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:38:26 PM] <Sarah> had*
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:38:34 PM] <DF64> 12bugs are no fun
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:38:44 PM] <Shiral> ?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:38:52 PM] <KK> Yes, Evie.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:38:53 PM] <Alkari> You need a combination of louvres ansd screens
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:39:01 PM] <Shiral> Bugs would say the same of us. =o)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:39:11 PM] Nick Moses is now known as jemler.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:39:13 PM] <imladris> My aunt and uncle lived near where I am now... They used to paint the screenings.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:39:17 PM] <DF64> 12especially if you have one that flew right toward your face inside the house
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:39:24 PM] <Evie> Goody, those ought to be easy to make
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:39:28 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, gross, DF.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:39:37 PM] <KK> Definitely screens with louvres or jalousies.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:39:44 PM] <DF64> 12I managed to duck in time
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:39:52 PM] <imladris> was to make the holes smaller in the screening
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:40:06 PM] <KK> Had one run over my bare toes in drama class in HS. Yuck!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:40:09 PM] <the_Bee> Bugs have been getting into Melantha's cat food. I had to throw some out.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:40:17 PM] <DesertRose> That makes me shudder with disgust at just the thought.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:40:26 PM] <kirienne> eeewwww, bee, Poor melantha
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:40:26 PM] <KK> What kind of bugs, Bee?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:40:29 PM] <DesertRose> Ew, KK. Yuck indeed.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:40:38 PM] <imladris> to keep out the "no see-ems"
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:40:45 PM] <Shiral> Well, that WOULD be "dramatic" KK
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:40:52 PM] <the_Bee> small ones. I HOPE they're not cockroaches.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:41:14 PM] <Sarah> constantly find myself battling with bees and flying things at work... yuck.

[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:41:36 PM] <the_Bee> Rehi, Evie
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:41:39 PM] <DesertRose> Do we have an Evil Evie?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:41:40 PM] <KK> Yes, especially since my legs were crossed, and my reflex was to kick the foot into the air--which launched the palmetto bug into the air to land somewhere behind me....on someone who likewise shrieked.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:41:41 PM] <Evie_> hi
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:41:43 PM] <Shiral> Just be glad we don't have insect infested clothing!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:41:44 PM] <Alkari> Is this your alter ego, Evie?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:41:50 PM] <Jerusha> rehi Evie
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:42:09 PM] <DesertRose> Ew, KK, LOL
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:42:13 PM] <KK> Alas, Bee, those sound like cockroaches. GOtta not leave out the wet food in the weather.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:42:20 PM] <imladris> KK, see why we always like the small little cold "cats" that were running around when we were little......
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:42:22 PM] <Evie_> Playing Pass the Bug in class, hm? :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:42:48 PM] <DF64> 12:D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:42:49 PM] <KK> cold "cats"?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:43:04 PM] <KK> We had large warm cats....
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:43:05 PM] <the_Bee> If only Melantha would eat it before the bugs find it...!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:43:12 PM] <imladris> the little lizards that ate the bugs
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:43:25 PM] Quit Evie has left this server (Ping timeout: 121 seconds).
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:43:34 PM] Nick Evie_ is now known as Evie.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:43:36 PM] <the_Bee> gekkos?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:43:36 PM] <Shiral> I have flat cats today
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:43:43 PM] <Jerusha> Teymuraz is after Evie
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:43:54 PM] <KK> Ah! Tha chameleons! They were cute. But not the skinky lizards with the electric blue and yellow stripe down the back.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:43:55 PM] <Evie> I guess I'd better build that Transfer Portal then
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:43:55 PM] <imladris> remember... .my pets .. are the non-furry ones at Rhemuth Castle pet pics....
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:44:04 PM] <jemler> evie, are you cheating on duncan?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:44:11 PM] <kirienne> Bee, have your apartment manager take care of getting rid of the bugs
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:44:12 PM] <imladris> yeah.. love the little green ones.'
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:44:13 PM] <DF64> 12poor duncan
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:44:27 PM] <the_Bee> Good Idea, kirienne
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:44:28 PM] <imladris> anything that ate bugs were wonderful.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:44:35 PM] <DesertRose> Doesn't your apartment complex spray for pests, Bee?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:44:36 PM] <Evie> I am not in the least bit interested in Teymuraz, despite my evil inclinations, muahahaha
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:44:54 PM] <Jerusha> But is Teymuraz interested in you?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:44:56 PM] <kirienne> LOL
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:45:01 PM] <jemler> i knew it! it's loris!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:45:12 PM] <the_Bee> They wil it I report it. I haven't had a problem here till now.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:45:21 PM] <Evie> I hope not! Dire things seem to happen to those Teymuraz takes an "interest" in....
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:45:28 PM] <Shiral> So is Brion fighting the bugs I mean the Marluk, KK?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:45:38 PM] <imladris> 'Evil alter-ego is Llarik"
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:45:45 PM] * Evie envisions Brion as a Starship Trooper fighting the Bugs
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:45:47 PM] <DesertRose> My building sprays as a matter of course, but then, this is Florida where there is a constant battle with bugs.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:45:48 PM] <kirienne> Report it tomorrow, or today if the office is still open, if it's open on weekends (my complex office is not open on weekends)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:46:04 PM] <the_Bee> closed weekends
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:46:16 PM] <KK> Bugs are why Tupperware was invented, in FLorida!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:46:18 PM] <Jerusha> Better to have it looked after sooner than later, Bee
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:46:36 PM] <imladris> and.. soggy-ness.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:46:38 PM] <the_Bee> I know. I'm still in denial.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:46:57 PM] <DF64> 12and when we're gone, the bugs will still be around
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:47:08 PM] <DesertRose> Get it dealt with before the bugs get into your food. :)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:47:08 PM] <Jerusha> Eww
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:47:26 PM] <Annie> ick
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:47:47 PM] <Evie> Also, if you have an airtight can (like the kind popcorn sometimes comes in, if you order from a school fundraiser), that can serve for dry pet food storage. Or there are large plastic containers made for the purpose.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:48:02 PM] <Evie> Those can help protect cat food better than the original bag can.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:48:05 PM] <Shiral> GOSH I love Sunday Chat! All full of bugs, today. =o)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:48:06 PM] <the_Bee> I dreamed about a big bug in my food. At least I hope it was a dream.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:48:11 PM] <KK> Brion is not yet fighting the Marluk. I've spent this week expanding that couple of paragraphs about Brion and co. arriving to find that Arban Howell and co. had captured Rorik, and I've also covered the death of Rorik's son from battle wounds (actually the coup) and the execution of ROrik. Ready for Brion and Alaric to ride off into the south to get away from all the killing.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:48:20 PM] <DF64> 12BUGS, BUGS, BUGS!!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:48:38 PM] <Alkari> Sounds like good progress then, KK
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:48:41 PM] * jemler sends for Elmer Fudd
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:48:46 PM] <Jerusha> Except that they will ride into more...
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:48:54 PM] <Annie> plenty of death, LOL
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:49:03 PM] <kirienne> :-) Sounds wonderful Kk
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:49:05 PM] <KK> I read about a restaurant in NY (of course) where they're serving bugs, and trying to get people to accept that these are the protein of the future. Not for this chicken.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:49:07 PM] <Shiral> A great plan of Brion's ...in theory. =o)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:49:14 PM] <Jerusha> How did Alaric handle the execution?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:49:16 PM] <Evie> There used to be a little greasy spoon sort of diner in the town where I finished high school. My mom was there with a friend one day and suddenly noticed her friend's burger had "whiskers." Upon opening it, they found a roach mashed into the burger. They never went back.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:49:24 PM] <Evie> Fortunately her friend hadn't bitten into it yet
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:49:32 PM] <kirienne> I will not eat bugs!!!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:49:38 PM] <DesertRose> Blech.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:49:49 PM] <jemler> i won't eat snails. i'm not a fish!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:49:50 PM] <Evie> I can live the next fifty years of my life with a bug free diet, thank you
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:49:53 PM] <Jerusha> Oh yuck!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:50:04 PM] <kirienne> I'm with you Evie
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:50:06 PM] <the_Bee> The only thing worse than finding a bug in your food is finding half a bug.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:50:07 PM] <Shiral> No, not for me, either! GOod luck to them staying in business in New York while serving Bug Cuisine!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:50:19 PM] <KK> Alaric had already assisted with the coup for Kennet Howell, and was a little queasy about Rorik's execution, but Jiri was there at his elbow to nutter him through it without disgracing hiself or the king.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:50:29 PM] <Alkari> The only bugs I want to eat are Balmain Bugs, which are a type of shellfish!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:50:32 PM] <Evie> So you are saving killing the Marluk for last?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:50:52 PM] <KK> Well, yes. We haven't gotten there yet.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:50:53 PM] <Jerusha> Who is Jiri, KK?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:50:58 PM] <Alkari> Poor Alaric! What he goes through at a very young age.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:51:05 PM] <KK> That's two chapters away, though it's already written.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:51:06 PM] <imladris> I had to laugh about a decade ago.. when the healthfood store nuts were advertising on the radio.. this great new "all-natural" fiber supplement: Chitin
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:51:25 PM] <KK> Sir Jiri Redfearn, one of Brion's senior advisors.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:51:28 PM] <Evie> LOL, imladris!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:51:29 PM] <Shiral> Sometimes, the Middle Ages just weren't pretty
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:51:42 PM] <Jerusha> Thanks, KK
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:51:53 PM] <imladris> Thought I misheard.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:52:09 PM] <imladris> listened three or four times...
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:52:16 PM] <KK> Brion does spare Rorik the drawing and quartering until after he's dead from hanging. It's a small mercy, but I'm sure it means a lot to ROrik.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:52:29 PM] <imladris> then... went to double check if I really remembered what chitin was.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:52:45 PM] <KK> Isn't that something to do with bug carapaces?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:52:48 PM] <Jerusha> Yes, if you have to die, that would be a comfort
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:52:53 PM] <the_Bee> your chitin heart
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:52:56 PM] <imladris> yes.... bug shells.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:52:59 PM] <KK> lol, Bee
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:53:03 PM] <Jerusha> DR!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:53:04 PM] <jemler> what is it with the furstsn/festils? Imre challenged Cinhil: lost. maruk challenged brion: lost. wencit challenged kelson: lost. get with it guys! the haldanes won!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:53:06 PM] <Evie> Granted, I'll eat food products that are dyed pink with cochineal, even though I know what the source for cochineal is, but then again,I pretty much make a point of not reading the labels on pink foods so I won't know if they have cochineal or not. :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:53:41 PM] <Jerusha> I'll stick with chocolate, thanks.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:53:42 PM] <Alkari> Some people never learn, jemler - or else they nurse grudges for generations!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:53:46 PM] <jemler> the only pink food ii eat is bubble gum.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:53:53 PM] <imladris> don't forget Marek and RhysMichael.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:53:56 PM] <kirienne> I can hardly wait to read the book, KK
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:54:08 PM] <jemler> i did forget. my bad.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:54:11 PM] <Evie> you don't like strawberry ice cream or yoghurt, jemler?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:54:28 PM] <KK> I accept that bugs are full of protein. I just dont want to eat them, or know that I'm eating them, if I am. And I don't want to eat them in bug form, just like I don't want to eat shrimp with the legs asnd heads and feelers on them, the way they serve them in Europe.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:54:30 PM] <Alkari> If they are not artificially coloured!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:54:38 PM] <Shiral> Or strawberries and raspberries a
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:54:40 PM] <jemler> strawberries are red, not pink. i seldom eat yogurt.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:54:55 PM] <Alkari> Oh KK - that's part o the fun of eating prawns - peeling them :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:55:09 PM] <Jerusha> If I had to eat bugs to survive, I might. But I hope it never comes to that.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:55:22 PM] <KK> Peeling them is one thing, peeling them when you have to remove the heads and legs and feelers is quite another.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:55:32 PM] <jemler> the only thing i skin before eating is hard boiled eggs.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:55:34 PM] <Shiral> I feel the same way, Jerusha
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:55:38 PM] <the_Bee> I had baby octopus once. They were small enough to go down smoothly.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:55:40 PM] <DesertRose> I just don't eat seafood at all.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:55:54 PM] <DesertRose> That solves the issue of having to peel shrimp or prawns. :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:55:56 PM] <Alkari> But that's what you do when you peel them ... rip off th ehead, rip off the legs, then peel off shell and possibly tail
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:55:58 PM] <DF64> 12i'm into salmon and crab meat
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:55:59 PM] <Jerusha> You ate a baby octopus??
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:04 PM] <KK> Octopus, or calimari, are very good, especially deep fried.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:05 PM] * Annie feels distinctly queasy
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:11 PM] <Shiral> I don't want to see anything on my plate that is identifiably Insect-like!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:12 PM] <jemler> but were they big enough to hand on on the way down?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:13 PM] <imladris> how about escargot?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:16 PM] <Evie> When my mom came to the US, she tried to serve a fish with a head on it at a buffet dinner, but no one would touch her fish, even though they scarfed up everything else...
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:21 PM] * Alkari loves calamari
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:22 PM] <jemler> esgarno!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:28 PM] <Alkari> And shot-sheel crab
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:29 PM] <the_Bee> In a stew at a restauran. about as big as my thumb.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:32 PM] <Shiral> I've elated
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:38 PM] <Alkari> SOT shel crab
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:40 PM] <Evie> So she got annoyed, went into the kitchen for a carrot stick, stuck it into the fish's eyeball, and then said, "There, it's not staring at you anymore."
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:48 PM] <Alkari> ACK!! My keyboard is sticking ...
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:52 PM] <DesertRose> Holy crap, Evie. :P
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:53 PM] <DF64> 12they must not have wanted to eat something that was looking back at them
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:56:58 PM] <jemler> i don't know any girls in california named mari.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:04 PM] <KK> Soft shell crabs are too much work to eat.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:05 PM] <Shiral> I've eaten snails. They were like garlic butter coated bits of garden hose
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:07 PM] <kirienne> I wouildn't have eaten it either, Evie
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:14 PM] <Annie> ew, Shiral!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:16 PM] <Jerusha> I like your mother, Evie!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:23 PM] <kirienne> eeeww, is right
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:37 PM] <KK> Yet, snails have little taste; it's the garlic butter!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:42 PM] <Alkari> Yes, snails aren't really worth eating - might as well just eat garlic butter!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:45 PM] <imladris> not good escargo.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:47 PM] <imladris> t
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:50 PM] <Evie> Same thing happened when she served lechon (roast pig) at a Sunday School dinner. Everyone was enthusiastic about the idea, but then couldn't bring themselves to try it because it still had a head on, so she had to cover the head with a trash bag before anyone would dig in.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:55 PM] <the_Bee> I've had snail. It's not so bad when the Restaurants call them escargot
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:57:56 PM] <KK> Yep, soak up the garlic butter with nice French bread.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:58:02 PM] <imladris> don't you eat fried clams?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:58:03 PM] <Shiral> Now I can say I've tried escargot--and I'll never feel deprived about not eating the,
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:58:05 PM] <Shiral> Them
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:58:09 PM] <Jerusha> A grilled cheese sandwich sounds good right about now
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:58:20 PM] <DF64> 12or pizza
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:58:25 PM] <jemler> sloppy joes
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:58:30 PM] <Sarah> I'm eating soup :)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:58:31 PM] <Evie> Yeah. I think I am looking forward to a snail and bug free meal
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:58:46 PM] <DesertRose> I was going to make spaghetti for supper tonight. :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:58:50 PM] <Sarah> yummy
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:58:54 PM] <Evie> And fish free, since I don't like seafood of any sort
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:58:58 PM] <the_Bee> I had dinner mid-day. not sure what I'll have for supper.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:59:02 PM] <Annie> funnily enough I wrote a scene with someone being served grasshoppers last week. It's taking on a whole new meaning now. :)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:59:05 PM] <imladris> some invertebrates are tasty
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:59:05 PM] <DesertRose> I'm with you, Evie.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:59:07 PM] <KK> Yeah, I'm a hypocritical carnivore. I don't want to look at the head.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:59:16 PM] <jemler> remember the scene from the lost boys? "you're eating maggots. how do they taste?"
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:59:19 PM] <Shiral> Was down in Monterey with my family last week, We ate a big part of a bucket of Cioppino. Fish I can handle--bugs not so much
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:59:30 PM] <Evie> the only thing I like that comes from an aquatic source is gelatin (some is made from seaweed)
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:59:36 PM] <imladris> though you have to wonder who took a good look at a lobster and thought.. "Gee that may be tasty"
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:59:44 PM] <the_Bee> I gave up on lobsters because I don't like them looking at me.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:59:49 PM] <Shiral> same with sea urchins
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:59:50 PM] <DesertRose> Or a shrimp or a prawn, for that matter.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [07:59:54 PM] <Alkari> Had seafood pizza the other night with my neighbour downstairs - we ordered it, changed into our PJs and sat there eating and drinking until late. No need to worry about driving home, as all I had to do was climb one flight of stairs
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:00:04 PM] <jemler> you know lobster used to be considered food fit only for prisoners and servants?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:00:06 PM] <DesertRose> Or, heaven help us, crayfish.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:00:09 PM] <imladris> Was a great line in a Nat Geo the other day....
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:00:17 PM] <KK> They looked at the lobster, were starving, and thought, other things eat those, so maybe I could.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:00:52 PM] <Evie> I think the "food with heads/eyes on it" aversion is starting to mutate to a "no meat with bones in it" aversion in the present generation. I know several people in their 20s or below who can't bring themselves to eat chicken on the bone, but they love chicken tenders or boneless breasts and thighs
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:00:56 PM] <Jerusha> Was it wine, Alkari, or scotch? :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:01:03 PM] <imladris> After the Cooper's Hawks have taken down a Jack Rabbit by Quintuple-teaming it... they opined:
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:01:07 PM] <KK> I don't like the live lobsters in the tanks at the doors of Red Lobster. Don't think I could eat something I knew had been killed especially for me.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:01:11 PM] <Alkari> A nice NZ sauvignon blanc
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:01:12 PM] <Shiral> I love crab, but lobster doesn't agree with e
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:01:14 PM] <Shiral> Me
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:01:37 PM] <DesertRose> I'm nearly forty and would rather not eat meat on the bone.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:01:39 PM] <imladris> "Life is Harsh in the Desert - Especially if you are delicious"
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:01:41 PM] <Evie> I think the further removed from the original food source we get, the easier it is to develop an aversion to our meat having any resemblance to the animal it originally came from
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:01:45 PM] <Jerusha> I'm allergic to lobster and crab, so that's out for me
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:01:57 PM] <KK> Is it the lobster, or too much butter? It might be your gall bladder objecting.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:01:58 PM] <kirienne> I like crab, if it's already out of the shell
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:02:03 PM] <Alkari> I am a very happy carnivore. And I love seaood
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:02:09 PM] <Alkari> seafood
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:02:11 PM] <DesertRose> I will if I have to, but if I have the choice, I'd rather not.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:02:38 PM] <Evie> the restaurants in Italy used to have large tanks and you were supposed to pick your main course from them if you were eating seafood. I stuck to the pasta meals instead.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:02:43 PM] <Alkari> I had lamb chops last night for dinner
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:02:49 PM] <kirienne> yum
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:02:51 PM] <DF64> 12PASTA!!!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:00 PM] <KK> No problem with bones, except tiny bones in fish. Hence, I like my fish in steaks, or fillets, but without the head.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:00 PM] <Shiral> I'm not sure which, KK I haven't eaten lobster often enough to make a study of it. But crab gives me no problems
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:01 PM] <kirienne> I love lamb, it's my favorite meat
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:16 PM] <jemler> stuffed pork chops (stove top). corn.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:21 PM] <KK> Lamb chops! Yum! I try not to think about the lambs gamboling in the fields.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:23 PM] <the_Bee> lamb is yummy.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:32 PM] <Alkari> I love lamb when it is very slow cooked, and just falls off the bone - the Greek dishes are often like that
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:42 PM] <jemler> mary had a little lamb. with mint jelly.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:44 PM] <Shiral> I love lamb, too. ESP rack of lamb
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:47 PM] <Evie> I read that as lambs gambling in the fields at first. Wondered if they prefer cards or dice.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:50 PM] <imladris> I still think one of the reasons in English.. is we like having separate words for dinner table and barnyard.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:55 PM] <Alkari> I don't like it with mint jelly
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:03:59 PM] <KK> Love rack of lamb.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:04:04 PM] <KK> Love leg of lamb.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:04:09 PM] <kirienne> I don't like mint jelly
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:04:09 PM] <Alkari> Lamb shanks
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:04:10 PM] <the_Bee> I've had some delicious Indian lamb dishes in restaurants.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:04:14 PM] <KK> Mint sauce, however....
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:04:19 PM] <Shiral> LOL Evie. Little woolly card sharks
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:04:25 PM] <kirienne> LOL
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:04:43 PM] <Evie> I like lamb Greek or Middle Eastern style. Tried it with mint sauce once, and it was very disappointing, but maybe because the lamb served with it was so bland it was nearly flavorless.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:04:43 PM] <imladris> Lamb @ Outback is excellent.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:04:43 PM] <Shiral> I'm a mint sauce girl. ESP homemade mint sauce
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:04:50 PM] <imladris> on the barby
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:05:16 PM] <jemler> barbie with mint sauce. hmmm.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:05:17 PM] <Annie> would the lambs play baccarat?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:05:24 PM] <Annie> baa-ccarat
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:05:25 PM] <Alkari> Imladris - that's actually the difference in English. 'Pig' is old English, but 'pork' is from the Norman French 'porc', as the fancy cooking terms came over with the French
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:05:25 PM] <the_Bee> KK, I'm trying to remember what sauce you like with lamb.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:05:33 PM] <Annie> ack autocorrect spoiled my pun!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:05:36 PM] <imladris> yes..
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:05:39 PM] <Shiral> Would they play cardounet?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:05:41 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:05:59 PM] <imladris> and Veal sounds so much better than Calf-flesh.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:06:01 PM] <jemler> would they baa-gammon?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:06:19 PM] <the_Bee> brb phone
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:06:20 PM] <KK> Mint sauce, with the vinegar base.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:06:22 PM] <Annie> gammon is the wrong animal, jemler
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:06:23 PM] <Shiral> the seamy underside of sheep life
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:06:42 PM] <Shiral> Yes. mint jelly is way too sweet
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:06:43 PM] <jemler> gammon is an animal?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:06:46 PM] <Jerusha> The under wool
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:07:01 PM] <imladris> They have a bordeaux sauce for the lamb at Outback.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:07:13 PM] <imladris> much better than mint jelly.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:07:16 PM] <the_Bee> what about currant sauce with lamb?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:07:25 PM] <Alkari> If we could find a way to 'farm' kangaroos we could sell you that meat
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:07:27 PM] <KK> That would be worth trying. I'll have to try it next time we go, instead of prime rib.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:07:32 PM] <Shiral> I'd be willing to try that, Bee!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:07:44 PM] <imladris> can get as rack or chops...
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:07:49 PM] <jemler> i've only had lamb kabobs. nearly 20 years ago.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:07:52 PM] <KK> Never had currant sauce with lamb, but it might do. I think of currant sauce with pork.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:04 PM] <DF64> 12I wonder what a cooked stenrect crawler would taste like
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:09 PM] <Evie> Ewww
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:13 PM] <Jerusha> Do you eat kangaroo meat?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:14 PM] <Alkari> I have a recipe for leg of lamb. slow cooked with a fruit chutney coating
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:16 PM] <kirienne> currant sauce sounds yummy
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:18 PM] <jemler> like a big bug!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:18 PM] <KK> Probably horrible.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:24 PM] <imladris> this is florida.... taste like chicken
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:24 PM] <Shiral> Nobodu has ever tried to cook one, probably!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:38 PM] <jemler> nobodu?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:44 PM] <Shiral> Nobody
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:46 PM] <KK> I think they kind of go to much, once they're killed.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:53 PM] <KK> mush
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:08:58 PM] <DesertRose> Ew.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:09:17 PM] <Evie> I imagine it's hard to extract the venom sacs once they've gone to mush too
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:09:20 PM] <imladris> they did sorta smoke afterward didn't it?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:09:21 PM] <Jerusha> At this rate, I may become a vegetarian
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:09:23 PM] <Alkari> Maybe they are like those Japanese fish that you risk your life when eating
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:09:25 PM] <jemler> alaric diced his up pretty good in Deryni Rising.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:09:29 PM] <Shiral> Would they even be edible?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:09:30 PM] <Alkari> Puffer fish?
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:09:48 PM] <DF64> 12feed it to loris and gorony
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:09:53 PM] <KK> I think kangaroo would be a hard sell, because they're cute, at least as younglings. Ostrich has a similar problem, in that no one wants to eat an ostrich, even though the meat is some of the best around, very healthy.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:09:57 PM] <Evie> Everything is edible, Shiral. The problem is that some things are only edible once. :D
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:10:07 PM] <imladris> Ostrich is good.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:10:11 PM] <the_Bee> I've had ostrich meat.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:10:14 PM] <KK> Ou got it, re the venom sacs, Evie.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:10:29 PM] <imladris> had big bird and little bird one Christmas dinner.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:10:32 PM] <Shiral> gotcha, Evie
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:10:33 PM] <Alkari> Kangaroo would be much healthier than beef or lamb
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:10:34 PM] <jemler> no i'd eat it twice, as long as it wasn't the same piece.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:10:36 PM] <imladris> Ostrich and quail.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:10:39 PM] <Evie> there was a restaurant here that had ostrich burgers on the menu. Don't know if it is still around or not, though.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:10:39 PM] <KK> lol, Evie.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:10:52 PM] <Alkari> It's just that they do tend to jump fences!!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:10:52 PM] <DF64> 12buffalo meat
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:11:03 PM] <DesertRose> There's a place around here that serves buffalo steaks.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:11:04 PM] <jemler> forget the burgers, get the drumsticks!
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:11:06 PM] <imladris> only had bison as ground.
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:11:11 PM] <Alkari> Quail are so small and bony they are hardly worth eating at all
[Sunday, August 18, 2013] [08:11:13 PM] <KK> Ostrich is very good. So is bison, and venison.

"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.)
