[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:07:21 PM] <jemler> aerlys, type /me it displays your name
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:07:23 PM] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:07:23 PM] <Jerusha> Hi KK!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:07:23 PM] <kirienne> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:07:26 PM] <bynw> Hiyas KK
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:07:27 PM] <KK> Hello, guys.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:07:28 PM] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:07:29 PM] <Laurna> Good day KK
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:07:33 PM] <Evie> hi KK
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:09 PM] * Aerlys No BTS. I think everyone just wants a nap. Boys want to play Minecraft
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:12 PM] <KK> How is everyone?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:26 PM] * Aerlys Hi KK
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:27 PM] <DesertRose> Doing well. How was your week, KK?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:32 PM] <Laurna> Good here.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:34 PM] <kirienne> Doing good, KK, how about you?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:40 PM] <KK> Excellent. I've started the last chapter!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:43 PM] * bynw is doing good
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:44 PM] <Jerusha> How are our heroes, KK?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:45 PM] <DesertRose> YAY!!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:47 PM] <bynw> AWESOME!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:49 PM] <Laurna> Yay!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:54 PM] <Jerusha> Wow!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:08:59 PM] <kirienne> yay!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:09:07 PM] * bynw does a dance around the channel with everyone celebrating the start of the last chapter
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:09:07 PM] <Evie> huzzah!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:09:07 PM] <Laurna> Does that mean the battle is done?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:09:08 PM] <Jerusha> So is Kelson about to be born?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:09:16 PM] <KK> THere was some expanding of the material covered in Swords Againt the Marluk, but I'm happy with it.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:09:30 PM] <jemler> don't tell us the ending jerusha!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:09:44 PM] <bynw> It will be good to read the expanded version since I have the original :)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:09:46 PM] * Jerusha hangs her head
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:09:53 PM] <jemler> lol
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:10:07 PM] <Laurna> I'm excited.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:10:12 PM] <kirienne> so am I
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:10:29 PM] <KK> No Kelson yet. Brion is just arriving back in the capital after defeating the Marluk. And Jiri did remind him that he had a wife waiting for him, and a duty to provide an heir.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:10:50 PM] <Jerusha> Me too, although I wouldn't mind if it went on forever (though KK might)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:10:59 PM] <Laurna> He had to be reminded of this. Oh dear.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:11:16 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:11:16 PM] <KK> He was busy saving his kingdom, in Estmarch.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:11:27 PM] <Aerlys> let's not all talk at once...
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:11:35 PM] <Jerusha> And the relationship with Alaric is about to take a turn for the worst
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:11:50 PM] <jemler> he also has a lot of new stuff on his mind, like magic!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:11:54 PM] <Evie> Yeah, chat is just sort of a "jump in as you can" experience around here, Aerlys.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:12:20 PM] <KK> Her relationship, but not Brion's. Brion just detoured to Cynfyn on the way back, and declared Alaric of age in Lendour.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:12:28 PM] <Aerlys> Not what I meant..computer glitch. Got behind
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:12:32 PM] <bynw> yes Alaric is the evil demon deryni in the Queen's eyes who made her Haldane husband use magic ... evil evil
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:12:45 PM] <jemler> if you can get a word in edge-wise, you have a weird keyboard! :)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:12:49 PM] <Jerusha> True, but it will still have major impact on our young Deryni
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:13:44 PM] <Laurna> Was Alaric already Duke by now or was he Earl first?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:13:50 PM] <KK> I'm also about to introduce Meraude to Nigel.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:13:58 PM] <DesertRose> That should be fun.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:14:06 PM] <kirienne> oh good :-)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:14:22 PM] <Evie> He'll be grateful
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:14:27 PM] <KK> He inherited both titles from his mother, but he doesn't come of age until 14, and 18 for Corwyn.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:14:33 PM] <Jerusha> How does Nigel fare with being smitten?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:14:52 PM] <jemler> last chapter, so the boo should be ready for the publisher in 6 -12 months.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:14:53 PM] <Laurna> Ok thanks
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:15:10 PM] <DesertRose> How old is Nigel at this point?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:15:13 PM] <KK> Smitten. He danced with Oksana at Twelfth Night, and she obviously was pursuing him, but he will only have eyes for Meraude, once me meets her.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:15:26 PM] <kirienne> :-D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:15:45 PM] <Jerusha> Thank goodness for Meraude!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:15:48 PM] <KK> He was knighted a year or so ago, so 19 or 20.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:16:00 PM] <DesertRose> That's about what I thought.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:16:04 PM] <Evie> Poor Oksana. Or, on second thought, not. Nigel doesn't need a wife who throws crockery when she's miffed. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:16:30 PM] <Jerusha> Nigel, go back for a long one!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:16:41 PM] <KK> Her brother became a Haldane squire for a year, at the last Twelfth Night court, and he went along on the expedition to Eastmarch, though he doesnot do much on camera.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:16:58 PM] <DesertRose> Who, Saer?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:17:19 PM] <KK> Yes.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:17:50 PM] * DesertRose nods.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:17:56 PM] <KK> Meraude is coming to be a maid of honor to the old queen.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:18:10 PM] <DesertRose> Except she's going to get quite the social promotion. :)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:18:11 PM] <Jerusha> Richeldis?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:18:11 PM] <KK> She and Jehana will become friends.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:18:21 PM] <KK> Yes.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:18:35 PM] <Evie> "Old" being a relative term, as I recall.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:18:53 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, Richeldis was a good deal younger than Donal, IIRC.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:18:58 PM] <Jerusha> Richeldis would have been quite younger than Donal, wasn't she?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:18:58 PM] <KK> Yes. Richeldis was quite spry when heading the mission to recover the bodies of Xenia and her child.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:19:09 PM] <KK> Yes, she was his second wife.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:19:41 PM] <Evie> I'll bet she was! "Spry" that is...and also ticked!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:19:50 PM] <KK> First one kept having stillborn babies and ones that died very quickly, poor thing.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:19:58 PM] <DesertRose> Perhaps she might prefer being called the "queen mother" rather than the "old queen."
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:20:01 PM] <DesertRose> :P
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:20:03 PM] <Jerusha> What was her name?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:20:23 PM] <Jerusha> Donal
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:20:30 PM] <Jerusha> 's first wife
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:20:43 PM] <Laurna> Queen mother is much better. lol
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:20:44 PM] <Evie> Dulcette? I keep wanting to say Dulcinea, but then I burst into song for some odd reason. ;-)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:20:51 PM] <KK> Dulchesse.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:20:58 PM] <Jerusha> Thanks, KK
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:21:03 PM] <Evie> OK. I knew that was in the ballpark.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:21:13 PM] <jemler> Dulcinea, Don Quixote!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:21:25 PM] <KK> Same root.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:21:38 PM] <Evie> She did seem sweet, what we got to see of her.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:21:42 PM] <Aerlys> "And thy name is like a prayer an angel whispers...."
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:22:12 PM] <KK> Poor thing was pregnant most of her adult life, and with nothng to show for it. Such things happened.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:22:29 PM] <DesertRose> Sad, that.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:22:43 PM] <KK> Yep.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:23:02 PM] <Laurna> So wait who was Brion's mother?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:23:07 PM] <KK> All those little Haldane baby coffins in the cathedral crypt.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:23:15 PM] <KK> Richeldis.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:23:23 PM] <Jerusha> Very sad
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:23:25 PM] <DesertRose> Makes me glad, as much as I enjoy STUDYING medieval history, that I live in a time with effective contraception. :)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:23:30 PM] <Laurna> Oh Ok Now I remember.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:23:44 PM] <Jerusha> Or better delivery care
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:23:48 PM] <DesertRose> That too.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:24:13 PM] <Evie> For that matter, hand washing :-)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:24:29 PM] <Jerusha> Sheet washing
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:24:31 PM] <DesertRose> Well, an understanding of the importance of cleanliness in a medical setting, yes. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:24:34 PM] <Aerlys> And chocolate
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:24:43 PM] <Evie> LOL! Yes, chocolate is important
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:24:50 PM] <Laurna> Here here to all the above.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:24:55 PM] <Jerusha> It's a food group
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:24:58 PM] <KK> I would like to think that in Deryniland, they've somehow made the connection that cleanlines is a good thing.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:25:25 PM] * DesertRose passes around a couple of bags of Dove chocolates, one dark, one milk. :)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:25:27 PM] <jemler> my neice and my cousin both had daughters in the last 2 weeks.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:25:30 PM] <Evie> I would add anesthesia. While childbirth can be done without it, my anesthesized state did contribute considerably to my husband's ability to survive long enough to father another child. ;-)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:25:36 PM] <Jerusha> I seem to remember Duncan hating to be filthy in tKJ
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:25:37 PM] <KK> That reminds me. Sheets in the washer, need to go in the dryer. BRB
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:25:49 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Evie.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:25:53 PM] <kirienne> LOL, Evie
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:26:06 PM] <Aerlys> No comment!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:26:07 PM] <Jerusha> LOL Evie
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:26:41 PM] <jemler> you anesthitized your husband?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:26:49 PM] <Evie> Actually, in the Middle Ages the more educated people at least had already made that connection to some extent, it's just that since their understanding of how disease was transmitted was inadequate, so were their precautions.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:27:18 PM] <Aerlys> (only after two children)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:27:26 PM] <Evie> No, jemler, but he might have wanted some anesthesia for his hand
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:27:31 PM] <KK> I''m back.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:27:36 PM] <DesertRose> WB, KK.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:28:12 PM] <jemler> wouldn't he have needed it more for his wrist or elbow?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:28:34 PM] <Evie> woohoo! I am the proud new owner of a 1:6 scale goblet that can easily be converted into a chalice for Duncan!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:28:40 PM] <DesertRose> Yay!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:28:44 PM] <Evie> I love ebay. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:28:47 PM] <Jerusha> Yippee
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:28:57 PM] <kirienne> cool, Evie
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:29:21 PM] <Laurna> I have been playing on there a lot this week too. Hope I am not outbidding you on anything. lol
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:29:22 PM] <Evie> It needs some prettying up, and IIRC the inside of a Communion chalice is supposed to be gold, even if the outside isn't, but those are easy fixes.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:29:36 PM] <Aerlys> I need to show my daughter your handiwork, Evie
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:29:49 PM] <Evie> I haven't bid on much this week due to the con coming up, but I had to grab this one before it disappeared.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:29:54 PM] * jemler is having Happy Days flashbacks.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:30:06 PM] <DesertRose> jemler: what are you smoking?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:30:06 PM] <Evie> it appears to be copper. It's definitely metal of some sort.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:30:08 PM] <Laurna> I bought these nice boots. but it took me thirty minutes to put them on his feet.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:30:14 PM] <Jerusha> Will you be in costume at the con, Evie?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:30:19 PM] <Evie> http://www.ebay.com/itm/130966551818?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:30:37 PM] <Evie> I should be in costume at least some of the time, especially with the weather so cool for August.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:30:46 PM] <DesertRose> That's cool, Evie.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:30:49 PM] <Evie> I won't die in the heat wearing multiple layers this year
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:31:14 PM] <Jerusha> Nice find, Evie
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:31:30 PM] <Evie> If it's too hot, I just wear SF themed t-shirts
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:31:55 PM] <Evie> Thanks! I guess that means the little chalice in my Indiana Jones board game is safe from me.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:32:08 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:32:12 PM] <Evie> I was eyeing it covetously and wondering if anyone would miss it. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:32:13 PM] <Jerusha> Are you sure?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:32:44 PM] <Aerlys> You do have a couple more priests to outfit, IIRC
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:32:47 PM] <Evie> Yeah, it's probably just going to end up in Duncan's aumbry, once I build his study.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:33:04 PM] <jemler> In Happy Days, Richie goes to a stag party and gets drunk. he told his father all they had was some beer in tiny little glasses. he told his father he had 72 of them! :)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:33:07 PM] <Jerusha> Do you still have Lego Duncan, Evie?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:33:17 PM] <Evie> Yes, I do. Denis is currently lounging around the house in khaki cargo pants and he's shirtless. Mind, he looks great shirtless, but he needs vestments.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:33:18 PM] <jemler> when evie mentioned the little goblet, well...
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:33:32 PM] <Aerlys> LOL
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:33:48 PM] <Jerusha> Is he wearing the Jane hat? :)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:34:01 PM] <Evie> No, Grub is borrowing it, I think.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:34:07 PM] <Jerusha> Oh good!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:34:22 PM] <Jerusha> She needs to take it to Dragoncon
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:34:31 PM] * bynw notes it's a Jayne hat
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:34:42 PM] <Jerusha> Mea culpa
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:34:42 PM] <Evie> KK, do you have any preference with of the littles I bring with me this year? I can't bring the whole lot, or I'll have to leave DD at home. I can fit 10-12.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:35:02 PM] <DesertRose> KK, speaking of cons, are you going to Darkover this year?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:35:03 PM] <KK> Those who haven't, should take a look at all the pics Evie's posted on the website. Lots of group shots.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:35:21 PM] <Evie> If I try to bring any more, I'd have to stuff them inside my bra. For the sake of my comfort, let's not go there. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:35:27 PM] <Jerusha> Does DD fit in the doll case? :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:35:39 PM] <Evie> She's petite, but not quite that small anymore.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:36:02 PM] <Evie> and she's gotten into costuming, so I will need to leave enough room in the car for her swag
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:36:11 PM] <KK> Yes, and the doll cases have to go under Evie's feet. It would be good for her to arrive without terminal leg cramps.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:36:12 PM] <jemler> devie, do you want me to tell her?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:36:13 PM] <Jerusha> Cool
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:36:23 PM] <jemler> evie, do you want me to tell her?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:36:46 PM] <Laurna> Your not leaving Briony at home are you?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:37:18 PM] <Evie> The question lacks context, jemler. Insufficient information for me to give you an answer. :-)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:37:23 PM] <Jerusha> Jemler, are you being devie-ous?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:37:32 PM] <Evie> I might need to, Laurna, if I can't fit her in.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:37:37 PM] <KK> Cardiel and Nigel with their grey hair look good. I love Derry's curls, and also Nivard's curly locks.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:37:44 PM] <jemler> do you want me to tell dd that she is gaining weight?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:38:06 PM] <Evie> LOL! Well, she's also gaining height, so that's to be expected. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:38:08 PM] <Jerusha> Nivard always looks so happy
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:38:27 PM] <Evie> yes, I'm getting a soft spot for Nivard now. It's that smile.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:38:32 PM] <Evie> and the puppy dog eyes
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:38:36 PM] <KK> He does. :-)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:38:46 PM] <Jerusha> Could be troublesome at a funeral mass, though
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:39:06 PM] <Evie> LOL! I'll send Denis in for that, then. He looks more solemn.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:39:10 PM] <Laurna> Wrap her up in your own costume in your luggage. she won't take up any extra room.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:39:16 PM] <Evie> Though in his case I'll have to remind him not to scowl.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:39:18 PM] <jemler> ow much is that hound dog in the window?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:39:55 PM] <Jerusha> While wearing the Jayne hat (thanks bynw!)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:39:59 PM] <Evie> OK, Laurna, I'll see if Briony can fit, even it that means Grub ends up riding in the car's cup holder. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:40:34 PM] <KK> Niverd is very angelic looking.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:40:34 PM] <Laurna> lol send the two girls out on an excursion together.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:40:35 PM] <Jerusha> Why does that seem oddly appropriate? :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:40:52 PM] <DesertRose> Grub, in her life, has been far worse places than the cup holder. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:41:06 PM] <Evie> You haven't met Grub, KK. She's a kid character--her action figure has magnetic feet, so there's no telling what she'll end up trying to climb.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:41:06 PM] <kirienne> :-D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:41:34 PM] <KK> What's her real name? Surely not Grub?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:41:35 PM] <Jerusha> I can hardly wait
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:41:56 PM] <DesertRose> Correct me if I'm forgetting stuff, Evie, but she's Sextus'--erm--natural daughter, yes?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:42:01 PM] <Evie> Amanda Arilan, KK. Denis's grand-niece via Sextus, one of Jamyl's children listed in the Codex.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:42:22 PM] <Evie> I sort of fleshed out that entire family line in fanfic, so that's where "Grub" comes from.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:42:27 PM] <KK> Ah. I thought I remembered that she has a real name.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:42:39 PM] <Jerusha> Better than Brat
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:43:15 PM] <DesertRose> Jamyl was a busy boy in his short married life.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:43:28 PM] <Evie> And yes, DR, that's right. "Grub" is actually a step up in terms of nicknames. Her mother just called her "Brat." Sextus rescued her from a very hard life when he discovered her existence.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:43:46 PM] <DesertRose> What was it, four children in five years?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:43:48 PM] <Jerusha> And a very hard frying pan
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:43:52 PM] <Evie> Yes, he was. Those four children in five years of married life always makes me feel a bit sorry for poor Alix! :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:43:57 PM] <DesertRose> No kidding.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:44:11 PM] <Evie> It's obvious they didn't have a TV set in their bedroom. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:44:23 PM] <DesertRose> Evidently not. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:45:10 PM] <Laurna> Or their first children bothering them. They must have had nurses for them all.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:45:14 PM] <KK> Obviously Sextus thinks there should be more Deryni children in the world.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:45:22 PM] <Evie> "So, baby, how about the Tonight Show?" "Well, for one thing, we don't have a TV, and for another, that show won't be around for centuries." "Ah, OK, then mind if I toss my braies over the bedpost?"
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:45:36 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:45:41 PM] <Evie> He must, since he's married and created others since Grub was born.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:45:48 PM] <Jerusha> *shocked*
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:46:13 PM] <Evie> Shocked about Sextus marrying? So was Denis, despite his daily prayers for it. ;-)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:46:49 PM] <Jerusha> :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:47:40 PM] <Jerusha> Though I will never believe Sextus will be the conventional husband
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:47:52 PM] <Jerusha> Loyal, yes, but not conventional
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:48:44 PM] <Evie> I figured with Denis being ...well, Denis, he needed at least one nephew who was a thorn in his side. Though Sextus isn't really all that irresponsible, for the most part. Just...unconventional. Yeah, that works. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:49:12 PM] <DesertRose> Sextus, in his pre-marriage years, kept Denis' life interesting. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:49:26 PM] <Evie> So, you think you'll have CM3 done before DragonCon, or shortly thereafter, KK?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:49:59 PM] <Aerlys> Looks like I have a lot of reading to catch up on!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:50:31 PM] <Evie> Not to mention some writing, Aerlys, given the small sampling you gave us. I want more!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:50:38 PM] <KK> I hope it will be done, though I still have to go back for the final polish, especially in the last quarter of the book, as it all winds up.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:50:50 PM] <Laurna> Is KK doing a Guest talk or panel?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:50:54 PM] <Aerlys> Thanks, but I haven't mastered reading at writing at the sam time
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:51:01 PM] <Evie> I see you've had new events added to the schedule for DragonCon. Didn't see a reading, though.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:51:15 PM] <KK> Reading will be at 1000 on Sunday.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:51:16 PM] <Evie> but I haven't checked in the last day or two
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:51:28 PM] <Evie> Oh, really! OK
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:51:38 PM] <Laurna> Oh neat. what will you be reading.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:51:44 PM] * Jerusha hopes Evie has total recall
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:52:05 PM] <Evie> Sister Therese might need to miss Con church, then, but I'm not sure if they've found a big enough room for it this year anyway.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:52:10 PM] <KK> Something from the book. Haven't decided what yet.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:52:12 PM] <Laurna> I wish I could go.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:52:23 PM] <Aerlys> Me too
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:53:00 PM] <Jerusha> Me three
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:53:12 PM] <kirienne> same here
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:53:20 PM] <Evie> KK, is Duncan's aumbry set into the wall? (Sorry for the topic switch, but I just realized I need that detail so I can plan the wall carving.)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:53:59 PM] <Laurna> I would like photos please. Mrs. KK you do not mind having your photo taken, I hope.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:54:08 PM] <Evie> I think I might have worked out how to make a prie-dieu despite having no woodcarving skill whatsoever. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:55:26 PM] <DesertRose> So I guess we'll have a Dragon*Con pity party in chat next week. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:55:44 PM] <Evie> Though I have to be a good girl and finish some other projects first. When my son is complaining about the house getting messy because of my doll stuff, you know it's time to tidy up. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:55:51 PM] * Aerlys starts thinking about what she has that might be useful to Evie,..
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:56:06 PM] <DesertRose> That's kind of bad, Evie, unless you have that rare creature, a neatnik teenager.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:56:23 PM] <Aerlys> Sigh, wih I had one or two of thoses...
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:56:25 PM] <Evie> I'll bring my computer, DR, but whether or not I'm in chat will depend on whether I can find wifi access. In some places my laptop doesn't work even where there's free wifi, and the main hotel charges for theirs.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:56:26 PM] <KK> Photos are fine. Evie took some good ones last year.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:56:28 PM] <Aerlys> those
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:56:32 PM] <Evie> but my hotel doesn't charge.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:56:36 PM] <KK> Niche is set into the wall.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:56:39 PM] <Aerlys> dyslexic fingers
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:56:54 PM] <DesertRose> We call that "rented fingers" around here, Aerlys.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:56:54 PM] <Evie> He's not a neatnik, DR, which is why it's both amusing and sad!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:57:00 PM] <DesertRose> Oh dea.r
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:57:03 PM] <DesertRose> *dear.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:57:16 PM] <bynw> yeah a pitty party for those of us who can't make Dragon*Con ... I'm generally only good for 1 con a year and I spent it at GenCon
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:57:28 PM] <Evie> But he has a girlfriend, so now suddenly housekeeping is more of a concern, since he might want to bring her over.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:57:33 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:57:38 PM] <Aerlys> Nope, unfortunately mine are bought and paid for
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:57:41 PM] <Jerusha> Ah ha
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:57:51 PM] <Jerusha> Does she like dolls?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:57:55 PM] <bynw> Evie: of course you can't bring a GF over to a messy house
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:57:57 PM] <Evie> KK, does that niche have a door over it, or is it an open niche?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:58:12 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Aerlys.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:58:18 PM] <Evie> I have no idea, Jerusha, though I doubt it.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:58:28 PM] <Evie> She's sweet, though.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:58:51 PM] <KK> It has a door.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:58:56 PM] <Jerusha> Fair enough.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:59:15 PM] <Evie> OK. I can have fun adding that detail in, then. Wooden door, I presume?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:59:16 PM] <KK> Bynw, was Anne Dupuis at Gencon, or has she stopped doing cons?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [07:59:44 PM] <KK> Yes, wooden door.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:00:32 PM] <Aerlys> KK, do you ever journey over the the Left Coast?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:00:42 PM] <Aerlys> to the Left Coast
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:00:42 PM] <bynw> KK: she hasnt been to a con in several years she said. I asked if she was going this year, it would have been good to see her. But she didn't. Harvey went and even ran a panel about book collecting.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:01:10 PM] <KK> Not since my mom moved here, Aerlys.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:01:23 PM] <Aerlys> Kinda difficult to make it to Atlanta!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:01:55 PM] <Evie> I'll see if we can build a Transfer Portal while we're there. Do you prefer to end up in the Marriott or the Hyatt?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:02:10 PM] <Aerlys> I'll have to make a pilgrimage in that direction then.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:02:16 PM] <Aerlys> Hyatt, definitely
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:02:34 PM] <Laurna> Maybe next year when the book is out in print she will come to San Diego Comic con. hmmm.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:02:36 PM] <DesertRose> Transfer Portals are the thing, aside Healers, that I wish we could really have from the Deryniverse.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:02:45 PM] <KK> I pretty much only go to cons that pay my way anymore.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:02:49 PM] <Jerusha> I'll take a phone booth, if I have to
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:03:02 PM] <KK> Have a Left Cost con invi9te me, and I'd come.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:03:02 PM] <Evie> Well, if you start now, I'll offer you crash space if you get here by Thursday night. Pray for elastic roads to make that cross-kingdom walk quicker. ;-)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:03:14 PM] <DesertRose> Half the reason that I can't make it to cons and stuff is that I can't afford the travel, but if we had Transfer Portals, that would solve that problem.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:03:30 PM] <kirienne> it sure would
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:03:32 PM] * bynw misses Dragon*Con ... always went those couple years he lived in Atlanta
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:03:56 PM] <DesertRose> I wish I'd been able to make GenCon. I wanted to go and bring the podchild.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:04:21 PM] <Evie> The secret to affording DragonCon (as much as anyone can manage to) is to stay in one of the smaller hotels in walking distance, and also bring a cooler of food so you don't have to eat out all the time.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:04:46 PM] * Aerlys starts wondering what her hubby needs to remodel to make room for a Portal
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:05:01 PM] <DesertRose> Maybe next year I can make Dragon Con. It's not THAT far of a drive for me, and hopefully I'll have a newer, better car by then.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:05:25 PM] <Evie> You've got enough manpower to draw on at your house for the energy cost, Aerlys, especially if more than one child is Deryni. ;-)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:05:25 PM] <KK> It's an interesting con.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:05:41 PM] <Jerusha> DH just finished the dining room floor. I can hear the response if I ask him to make a portal chamber!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:05:51 PM] <DesertRose> I've only ever been to one con, and that one I accidentally gate-crashed.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:05:52 PM] <kirienne> LOL
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:05:53 PM] <Aerlys> Well, at least one has a proper Deryni name!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:06:08 PM] <Evie> LOL, Aerlys!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:06:20 PM] <Jerusha> Which one, Aerlys?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:06:32 PM] <Aerlys> Morgan Anthony.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:06:38 PM] <DesertRose> That's a pretty name.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:06:41 PM] <KK> Sadly, Darkovercon is about to be no more. It's been a fixture in my life for more than 30 years.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:06:42 PM] <Jerusha> Yea!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:06:43 PM] <Evie> I mean LOL Jerusha re: the floor.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:06:59 PM] <DesertRose> Do you want me to put him on the Deryni-named children list on the website, Aerlys?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:07:07 PM] <Evie> Ooh, you didn't mention his second name in chat last night, Aerlys!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:07:22 PM] <Evie> That's a doubly Deryni-canonical name!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:07:29 PM] <Aerlys> Morgan would probably prefer "handsome"
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:07:44 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, yes. How old is he?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:07:46 PM] <Jerusha> How old is he?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:07:46 PM] <kirienne> that is sad, KK. I wish I'd had the opportunity to go to Darkover con
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:07:54 PM] <Aerlys> Yes, DesertRose. Haven't gotten around to that yet.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:08:03 PM] <Aerlys> He's almost 16.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:08:06 PM] <KK> It's still on for this year.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:08:25 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, just shoot me an email at desertrose at deryni dot net with whatever info you want me to put up, at your convenience, and I'll post it.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:08:35 PM] <kirienne> no finances for cons unfortunately. :-(
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:09:01 PM] <KK> That's understood. YOur health comes first.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:09:07 PM] <Evie> I wish the Derynicon thing had worked out, even though it looks like the planning for that was before my time here.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:09:11 PM] <Aerlys> Wanted a Duncan, but then we met a kid who ruined it for us
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:09:14 PM] <DesertRose> Me neither, kirienne. If it were just the con and the hotel, I could do it, but getting there is the hard part.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:09:20 PM] <DesertRose> Uh oh.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:09:22 PM] <Aerlys> If we have another one, I want a Rhys Michael
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:09:28 PM] <Evie> I'd want a Duncan too....wait, never mind. ;-)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:09:40 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, that's a gorgeous name. If I'd ever had a son, I might have named him Rhys.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:09:42 PM] <Aerlys> Tavis would work for me, too
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:10:22 PM] <Evie> Michael is one of my favorite male names
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:10:25 PM] <jemler> ap Rhys became known as Price.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:10:48 PM] <Jerusha> Another one, Aerlys?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:10:57 PM] <DesertRose> And I know what you mean about kids ruining names for you. My daughter might have had the name Denise somewhere in her name, as it was her bio-father's mom's middle name, but we knew a girl named Denise that we didn't want associated with our kid.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:11:00 PM] <Aerlys> You bet!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:11:05 PM] <Evie> I know someone whose son named Rhys has it rhyming with Price, though I prefer the other pronunciation (Reece).
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:11:10 PM] <kirienne> Darkover weekend is also the weekend of my SCA province's anniversary feast, it will be my first event since starting chemo. Many are expecting me at the feast, my prince and princess included, so I have to be there.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:11:31 PM] <DesertRose> Then you go to the feast and have a great time!! :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:11:37 PM] <jemler> which province?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:11:40 PM] <Aerlys> I prefer Reece
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:11:44 PM] <kirienne> I intent to have the best time ever. :-)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:11:45 PM] <Jerusha> Absolutelfy, Kirienne!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:11:53 PM] <Evie> that sounds like it will be fun, kirienne
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:12:11 PM] <kirienne> Golden Rivers, in the Principality of Cynagua, in the Kingdom of teh West
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:12:31 PM] <jemler> does anyone know where i can order some mead. i need it delivered to ohio.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:13:14 PM] <DesertRose> I would contact your local SCA branch, jemler. Chances are there's a meadmaker near you or they know someone, anyway.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:13:29 PM] <Evie> I have a friend who makes mead, but I don't know if he ships it (or what AL law thinks of that sort of thing, since it has strict laws re homebrewing and selling).
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:13:30 PM] <DesertRose> sca.org has a search function where you can find your nearest group.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:13:39 PM] <kirienne> I don't drink mead, so I don't know
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:13:41 PM] <Aerlys> try http://www.rabbitsfootmeadery.com/
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:13:45 PM] <jemler> i live on the border of aethelmearc and the middle.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:13:52 PM] <Evie> I loooove mead
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:13:52 PM] <KK> Samwise makes mead. Do you have his contact info? He used to show up here sometimes.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:13:57 PM] <kirienne> ah, that's one I've heard the name of
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:14:09 PM] <DesertRose> I love mead too.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:14:20 PM] <Evie> Even more than cider.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:14:26 PM] <Aerlys> So long as it's not mead-iocre!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:14:33 PM] <Evie> *headdesk*
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:14:35 PM] <KK> It's a bit sweet for my taste.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:14:39 PM] * DesertRose facepalms.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:14:44 PM] <Evie> Don't make me fling a mackerel at you, Aerlys. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:14:50 PM] <kirienne> LOL
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:15:01 PM] <DesertRose> It depends on the meadmaker, KK. I've run across meads that were not super-sweet.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:15:06 PM] * Jerusha dips a smelt in honey and gets ready to throw
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:15:13 PM] <Evie> With puns like that, jemler will take you as an ally, and it will be open war.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:15:17 PM] <jemler> aerlys, *I* usually make the bad jokes here!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:15:29 PM] <Aerlys> yay! I merited my first flying mackerel
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:15:35 PM] <DesertRose> Aerlys, jemler is usually the bad punster of the group, and he gets fish thrown at him on a regular basis. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:15:47 PM] * Jerusha really needs to contact her local SCA chapter one of these days
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:15:51 PM] <KK> (As jemler gets huffy because Aerlys is horning in on his pun-master title!)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:15:58 PM] <Evie> I prefer sweet wines also, in addition to cider and mead. Don't like anything dry or heavy in tannins.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:15:58 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:16:14 PM] <Aerlys> Just wait till I get warmed up...
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:16:37 PM] <KK> Don't get me wrong, I love sweet wines. But I've just never gotten fond of mead.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:16:50 PM] <DesertRose> Am I going to have to unlock the punitentiary again? :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:16:55 PM] * bynw has only liked Sam's meads
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:16:56 PM] <Evie> If I thought I had a chance of making it to World Market between now and DragonCon, I'd bring you a bottle of what I think of when I read about Fianna, KK.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:17:01 PM] <Aerlys> ooh, ow
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:17:13 PM] * Evie loads the mackerel launcher
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:17:29 PM] <KK> I tend to like the dessert wines that come in a tall, skinny bottle. There are some great ones out of Montecello.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:17:56 PM] <Evie> If you ever happen upon Roscato, that's now my "Fianna" of choice.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:18:07 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, my parents picked up some Virginia-made wines on their last trip to Williamsburg. I haven't tried them yet, but Mom says they're yummy.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:18:59 PM] <DesertRose> I didn't even know anybody made wine in Virginia.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:18:59 PM] <Evie> IIRC, medieval wines tended to be sweeter and have a lower alcohol content (which would be why they're sweeter; fewer sugars consumed in the fermentation process).
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:19:15 PM] <KK> We do some very nice wines.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:19:32 PM] <jemler> oh yeah, they've been wine-ing since the Civil War.

[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:20:21 PM] <jemler> the little crackers?!?!?!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:20:28 PM] <Evie> hello?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:20:30 PM] <DesertRose> Evie, if you ever make it down my way, I'll have to take you and the family on the San Sebastian winery tour in St. Augustine.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:20:35 PM] <kirienne> Hi Evie
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:20:40 PM] <DesertRose> If you like sweet wine, you'll like theirs, I think.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:20:41 PM] <kirienne> wb
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:20:49 PM] <Evie> I want to see St Augustine sometime
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:21:10 PM] <Jerusha> Did the mackerel kill chat?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:21:13 PM] <DesertRose> St. Augustine is fun. I haven't been down there in a while, but I love to hop down for a day and goof off there.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:21:15 PM] <jemler> two saints making wine? no wonder they have a glow in all those paintings!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:21:25 PM] <Evie> I guess. I got bumped for a few secs, Jerusha
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:21:52 PM] <DesertRose> No, jemler, not the little crackers, actual live wriggly goldfish. :P
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:22:03 PM] <Laurna> Jemler is rolling in fish today.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:22:10 PM] <jemler> where is bee?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:22:17 PM] <DesertRose> This is not unusual for jemler.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:22:21 PM] <jemler> here luke, fresh fish!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:22:21 PM] <KK> I remember going to St. Augustine when I was little. My first almost-castle, or closest I got to one in those days.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:22:22 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, yeah, we have no Bee today.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:22:25 PM] <Evie> His head is too thick to register the tiny thump of goldfish, DR. Use a bigger fish
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:22:29 PM] <kirienne> Shiral must be either packing or working
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:22:29 PM] <DesertRose> Castillo de San Marco?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:22:37 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Evie.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:23:01 PM] <Evie> More of a palace than a castle, but have you been to Biltmore House in North Carolina, KK?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:23:15 PM] <DesertRose> I might see if I can get it together to get down there for one of the ghost-walk tours in October. Those are fun.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:23:19 PM] * Aerlys makes mental note to stop at Pike Place market before next chat
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:23:23 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:23:27 PM] <KK> Yes! What a magnificent house! But boy, was it hot, the day we went.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:23:41 PM] <DesertRose> Speaking of wines, they make some nice ones too, at Biltmore.

[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:24:53 PM] <DesertRose> The last time I was there, I wasn't old enough to drink the wine, but the grape juice they let me have was fantastic and my parents loved the wines.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:24:54 PM] <Aerlys> WB again, Evie
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:24:59 PM] <DesertRose> Hi again, Evie.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:25:02 PM] <jemler> evie, i am NOT doing that!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:25:05 PM] <Evie_> and I know someone in the SCA who majored in horticulture and did her master's thesis on the Biltmore House gardens. She got to stay in the servants' quarters during her time there.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:25:13 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, cool. :)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:25:31 PM] <Evie_> Not doing what, jemler? I just got bumped from chat for the second time. :-(
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:25:47 PM] <jemler> a college student majored in alcohol? what a concept!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:25:50 PM] <KK> Neat. We even did hte roof walks, first thing, before it got too very hot.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:25:59 PM] <kirienne> how fun
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:26:08 PM] <Aerlys> it's those flying fish. You need to duck next time, Evie
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:26:09 PM] <Jerusha> Wow, it was quiet and now everything comes up at once!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:26:17 PM] <Evie_> I can't remember if we did a roof walk. Hm. I might need to go back. ;-)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:26:48 PM] <jemler> i majored in getting turned down for dates in college.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:26:53 PM] <Aerlys> Roof walk sounds like someplace to take the dog

[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:33:08 PM] <Evie> but let's see how much she wants to charge me for it first.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:33:16 PM] <Jerusha> They do that. Ours used to love to wrestle empty coke boxes
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:33:36 PM] <KK> Back. Had to check the dryer.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:33:46 PM] <Evie> Luke likes to wrestle plastic clothes hangers
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:33:52 PM] <Jerusha> If I didn't know better, Evie, that would have sounded really weird!
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:33:53 PM] <DesertRose> I hate doing laundry. :)
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:34:14 PM] <Evie> DH calls them his "intractable foe." "Heeere, Lukey, come battle your intractable foe!"
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:34:20 PM] <DesertRose> LOL

[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:34:49 PM] <DesertRose> I have enough laundry on my own. :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:34:50 PM] <kirienne> I did laundry on Friday
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:35:05 PM] <Evie> I'll be doing mine tonight after chat.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:35:12 PM] <Evie> I still need to wash things to bring to con
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:35:12 PM] <KK> We had a house guest, so I had to do a load of sheets and towels.

[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:35:27 PM] <KK> Yep.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:35:32 PM] <Jerusha> Mine is in process
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:35:32 PM] <Evie> LOTS of dishes and laundry, in your case.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:35:41 PM] <DesertRose> BTW, Aerlys, if you want to type someone's name without fooling with typing the whole thing, type the first couple of letters and then hit the tab key.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:35:48 PM] <DesertRose> It'll autocomplete the name for you.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:35:52 PM] <Aerlys> It never ends. Breed like rabbits
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:35:59 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:36:08 PM] <DesertRose> Well, with as many people as are in your household, yes, I can imagine.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:36:10 PM] <KK> Ah, well. I'd best get back to the book. I really want to get the action roughed out tonight, so I can write like mad tomorrow.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:36:13 PM] <Aerlys> Thanks
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:36:16 PM] <Evie> Well, at least the making of 'em is fun, even if the laundry and dishes aren't so much.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:36:22 PM] <Jerusha> :D
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:36:38 PM] <Evie> Have fun with the book wrapup!

[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:36:56 PM] <Evie> I'll actually arrive Thursday night, KK, but your first event is early Friday, right?
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:36:57 PM] <Laurna> excited aboutthe new book
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:37:05 PM] <Evie> So hopefully I'll have my con badge by then.

[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:38:10 PM] <Evie> OK. I'll look on my DCon app. Schedules tend to change without much notice until the last minute.
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:38:14 PM] <Laurna> enjoy the event
[Sunday, August 25, 2013] [08:38:14 PM] <KK> You guys all have a great fortnight. See you next time.

"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.)
