KK Chat -- 15 December 2013 Part 1
« on: December 15, 2013, 08:51:04 pm »
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:08:02 PM] Join KK has joined this channel.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:08:04 PM] <Annie> the wedding was at a spa resort, and she negotiated us such good rates we stayed there the week. Swimming pools and saunas and Jacuzzis. Tough job, but someone has to do it.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:08:09 PM] <Laurna> Hello KK
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:08:09 PM] <Evie> Hi, Katherine!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:08:14 PM] <Annie> hi KK
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:08:15 PM] <Shiral> Hurrah, the Summoning charm worked!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:08:20 PM] <Shiral> Hello, Katherine
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:08:35 PM] <KK> Hello, all. Back from the Danube.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:08:39 PM] <Laurna> How was your vacation
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:08:47 PM] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:09:08 PM] <KK> It was excellent. River cruising is much better than ocean cruising.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:09:10 PM] <jemler> couldn't have been that great. she came home. :)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:09:10 PM] <Shiral> We appreciate your sacrifice, Annie
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:09:28 PM] <Shiral> What cities did you see?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:09:30 PM] <deryni_guest4783> Evie, St-Petersburg. I know about changing nickname, but I was just looking and now I'm thinking about my future nick =)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:09:32 PM] <Shiral> Or stop in?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:09:33 PM] <KK> Couldn't eat that much every day, Jemler; had to come home.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:09:40 PM] <Annie> we have a guest from Russia here tonight, KK
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:09:59 PM] <KK> Russia--wow!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:10:13 PM] <KK> I was in Hungary, Austria, and Germany.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:10:26 PM] <Jerusha> Hi KK
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:10:28 PM] <Shiral> Sehr Gut
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:10:40 PM] <KK> Hadn't realized there were so many locks on the Danube. And they're HUGE!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:10:42 PM] <Evie> DH and I want to take a river cruise when we can set aside enough for it
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:10:45 PM] <Laurna> If you don't put on 10 lbs its not a real vacationa
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:10:47 PM] <deryni_guest4783> Hello, KK
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:11:22 PM] Nick deryni_guest4783 is now known as Texanu.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:11:28 PM] <Annie> my friend and her new husband were determined to feed us. I've never eaten as much in my life!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:11:51 PM] <Jerusha> Poor Annie! :D
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:12:11 PM] <KK> Watch for two-for-one deals. They're relatively inexxpensive, especially when you realize that they're all-inclusive: hotel, all meals, wine with dinner, transportation while on the vacation, transfer to and from the airport, many excursions included.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:12:17 PM] <Annie> I had gumbo and grits and cornbread and all kinds of other weird stuff ;)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:12:34 PM] <Jerusha> Crawdads, too?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:12:38 PM] <Annie> nope
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:12:45 PM] <Evie> LOL, Annie! Southern cuisine, in other words
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:12:47 PM] <Annie> nothing with more than the usual number of legs
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:13:00 PM] <Shiral> What was your favorite stop, KK?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:13:00 PM] <Laurna> Cornbread and grits= weird stuff?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:13:02 PM] <Evie> I love cheese grits
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:13:13 PM] <Annie> it's weird here!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:13:16 PM] <KK> What did we eat? Hmm, rack of lamb, the best wiener schnitzel I've ever eaten, scallops, cod crusted with macademia, lots of stuff.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:13:36 PM] <Laurna> Yummm
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:13:39 PM] <DesertRose> Hi KK. Sorry, I was afk fixing myself some supper when you got here.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:13:53 PM] <Shiral> Well yes, although I was thinking of which city you enjoyed seeing the most
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:14:17 PM] <Shiral> I'm right there when it comes to rack of lamb and Wiener Schnitzel, though
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:15:07 PM] <KK> Passau or Durnstein.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:15:09 PM] <Evie> KK, Mini-Evaine and Mini-Rhys are almost ready to go home to you. I am hoping to finish them on Christmas break. I had hoped to have them in your hands by now, but my arm has hurt too much to let me do any fine detail work recently. But I'm getting a cortisone shot on Wednesday that should help that.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:15:29 PM] <Jerusha> Ouch!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:15:50 PM] <KK> Ow, it had slipped my mind that your arm was ailing.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:15:57 PM] <Laurna> Yik!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:16:05 PM] <Evie> Yeah, I wanted to avoid getting a shot in my joint, Jerusha, but the alternative is worse, believe me!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:16:07 PM] <KK> Don't overdo. I can wait.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:16:12 PM] <Shiral> Here's the link to my English Storybook cottage Youtube video

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:16:34 PM] <Jerusha> I'll trust you, Evie, but I'm not sure
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:16:39 PM] <Laurna> I loved that and passed it around Shiral\
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:16:53 PM] <Evie> Shiral is building Gwynedd one tiny house at a time. ;-)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:16:56 PM] <Shiral> Rotator cuffs are very painful when they're not working properly
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:17:04 PM] Join Alkari has joined this channel (Mibbit@OWIRCN-117e0ddd.internode.on.net).
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:17:14 PM] <jemler> hi alkari
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:17:16 PM] <Shiral> This latest is more of a "Mearan Manor house" than it is a Royal Residence
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:17:19 PM] <KK> I've bookmarked that, Shiral, and will look at it later.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:17:19 PM] <Jerusha> My DH is still going to physio for one
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:17:21 PM] <Laurna> Hi Alkari
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:17:29 PM] <Shiral> But maybe it could be a weekend cottage for Brecon and Richelle
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:17:30 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Alkari.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:17:31 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Alkari
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:17:35 PM] <Alkari> Hi all.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:17:40 PM] <Annie> hi Alkari
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:17:42 PM] <Shiral> Hi Alkari
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:18:25 PM] <Shiral> Maybe Evie's painful arm is "The Doll's Revenge" for all those doll heads on stakes. =o)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:18:39 PM] <Alkari> LOL.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:18:43 PM] <KK> Oh, and back to the trip, we went to a concert in Vienna, with musicians in period costume and music of Mozart and Strauss--very nice!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:18:50 PM] <Evie> It's not even the initial pain of the rotator cuff injury that bothers me most, but that inflamation has apparently triggered arthritis from my shoulder down to my finger joints, plus the pain has made my neck muscles seize. So I'm sleeping in fits and starts all night and range from mild pain on a good day to barely able to function on a bad day. Cold & wet days are worst--but it's winter.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:18:51 PM] <DesertRose> Oh cool, KK!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:19:00 PM] <Shiral> Sounds like a lovely trip, KK!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:19:03 PM] <Alkari> Sounds wonderful KK - we probably get that next year
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:19:17 PM] <KK> I wouldn't put it past the dolls.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:19:20 PM] <Shiral> When last in Vienna I was sorely disillusioned that the Danube was more brown than blue
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:19:27 PM] <Evie> So yeah, if a shot will stop all of that, or even most if it, I'll take a pointy bit of metal in my shoulder for a short few moments to get a decent night of sleep.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:19:37 PM] <Laurna> That is wonderfull I got to go walzing on night when I was In vienna 20 yeas ago
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:19:37 PM] <Jerusha> We need to arrange for a visit from Bishop Duncan to set everything right
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:19:49 PM] <Alkari> My wrist is wrapped up like a cocoon again as they took the plate out last Friday.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:19:55 PM] <Evie> I have Helena sitting vigil by my bed right now. :D
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:20:00 PM] <DesertRose> The cortisone will burn going in, but shortly after that wears off, you should feel a lot better, Evie.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:20:02 PM] <Shiral> I'd take the injection, too
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:20:03 PM] <Alkari> So I am typing 'under handicap
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:20:17 PM] <Shiral> And I hate needles passionately
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:20:23 PM] <Evie> Bishop Duncan was with her, but he had a wardrobe change with the new guy I just acquired, so he's elsewhere at the moment
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:20:25 PM] <Jerusha> Me too, Shiral!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:20:33 PM] <KK> Wait, what plate, Alkari. Did I miss something here?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:20:45 PM] <Alkari> Needles dont worry me as long as I don't have to watch them going in!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:20:50 PM] <Laurna> Meet a handsome austrian who twirled me around the floor.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:21:14 PM] <Evie> Hopefully while you were still upright, Laurna.... :-D
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:21:23 PM] <Jerusha> Or not
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:21:24 PM] <Alkari> KK, I broke my wrist last July and had to have pins and plate in. But a few weeks ago we found that the main thumb tendon was rubbing on the edge of the plate ...
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:21:42 PM] <Shiral> Jeez, everyone is having mobility problems
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:21:46 PM] <Alkari> and so they had to take the plate out again, in case I ended up fraying the tendon!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:21:48 PM] <Jerusha> That's not good, Alkari
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:21:53 PM] <KK> Ah. My mind isn't going, then. I'd just missed hearing about that.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:21:54 PM] <Evie> Has the plate removal helped, Alkari?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:22:01 PM] <Laurna> I still dress up and go walzing a few times a year.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:22:11 PM] * Shiral passes KK the plate of Christmas shortbread cookies
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:22:22 PM] <Alkari> Can't tell Evie - the thing is wrapped up like a Christmas pudding!!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:22:41 PM] * jemler offers a plate of preserved strawberries
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:22:46 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah. I just got done wrapping my right hand because I've got to have surgery early next month (nothing serious) and I'm off my arthritis meds in preparation for the surgery, so my arthritis is flaring and there really isn't much I can do about it, which kinda sucks. :(
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:22:48 PM] <Alkari> But it should be fine - I can drive OK, and the stitches come out next Monday
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:23:01 PM] <Shiral> Just in case you're feeling puckish after your trip, KK =o)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:23:12 PM] <Shiral> Or rather, peckish
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:23:16 PM] <Alkari> And the surgeon says I will probably have better movement without the plate
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:23:35 PM] <jemler> "Come now spirit, wither wander you"
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:23:37 PM] <KK> Ah, that's good.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:24:17 PM] <Alkari> The only thing I hate is having to wrap my arm up in plastic bags to shower
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:24:27 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, that does suck, Alkari.

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:24:34 PM] <Alkari> And it makes hair washing a bit of a pain.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:24:35 PM] <Evie> hi DF
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:24:35 PM] <jemler> hi df64

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:25:02 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Gigi.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:25:20 PM] <Evie> she sniffs in your general direction, DR
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:25:22 PM] <DF64> 12anyone seen the hobbit yet
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:25:23 PM] <Shiral> Cats are busy basking in the afternoon sunlight in my bedroom
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:25:30 PM] <Alkari> There is a hairdresser just up the top of the driveway, so I am tempted to go to her a couple of times to get my hair washed 'properly' and blow-dried!!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:25:35 PM] <Shiral> Finally warming up a little and they're soaking up rays
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:25:36 PM] <Jerusha> Very dark, here
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:25:37 PM] <DesertRose> Southeast? :P
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:25:38 PM] <Evie> I haven't yet, DF, but I want to during my holiday break
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:25:50 PM] <DF64> 12saw it today
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:25:52 PM] <Shiral> Going to see it tomorrow
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:25:54 PM] <Alkari> How is everyone in all the cold weather I have been reading about?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:26:05 PM] <Jerusha> Very cold

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:26:22 PM] <Shiral> Even in California, it's been cold enough to pamper my lemon tree
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:26:24 PM] <Shiral> Hello Bee
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:26:26 PM] <DF64> 12hi bee
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:26:27 PM] <Evie> Cold and occasionally wet
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:26:35 PM] <Shiral> And I've broken out my silk underwear
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:26:40 PM] <Alkari> Remeber, this is 'global warming' ! :D
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:26:43 PM] <Annie> hi DF64, Bee
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:26:45 PM] <Jerusha> We bailed shopping for a Christmas tree yesterday, because it was too cold
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:26:49 PM] <Alkari> Hi there Bee
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:26:55 PM] <jemler> hi bee

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:27:11 PM] * Shiral wishes for rain because we really need it.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:27:23 PM] <Laurna> Hello are othere still here?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:27:24 PM] <jemler> i'll send you all our snow!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:27:30 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Bee.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:27:44 PM] <The_Bee> Hi all! KK, how was your river cruise?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:27:48 PM] <KK> There was a snowfall a couple of days before we got back, in Virginia, but it was ok yesterday when we came in. Cold in Europe, sort of mid-40's, but no rain. We were very lucky, especially for this time of year.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:27:49 PM] <Alkari> We have just had a nice little shower of rain, but it is fining up and should be 24-26C later
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:27:52 PM] <jemler> laurna, can you hear me now?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:27:54 PM] <Shiral> I'm extremely popular with the cats, lately
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:27:55 PM] <DF64> 12Orlando supposed to drop in the mid 40's overnight
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:28:07 PM] <jemler> orlando fla?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:28:26 PM] <DesertRose> Florida is not participating in December.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:28:27 PM] <Jerusha> It's -21`C here now
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:28:30 PM] <Shiral> It's been cold enough that I'm really looking forward to Hawaii
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:28:42 PM] <KK> Bee, it was good.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:28:43 PM] <Jerusha> Hawaii, Shiral?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:28:44 PM] <Annie> the friend from Belgium had to stay an extra night with us in Florida, because she was going via Dulles and her flight was delayed so she would have missed her connection
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:28:51 PM] <Shiral> Yup, Jerusha
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:28:52 PM] <DesertRose> It's supposed to be around 40F tonight, and that's cool enough for me. :)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:28:55 PM] <Alkari> I am hoping it is nice and mild when we go to europe next year - late August through to early October.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:29:06 PM] <Shiral> First family Christmas vacation we've had in years
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:29:07 PM] <KK> It's 30 here, right now.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:29:08 PM] <Jerusha> I love Hawaii! Do you need me to carry your bags?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:29:15 PM] Part Laurna has left this channel.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:29:17 PM] <jemler> 29 here
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:29:19 PM] <The_Bee> We had our first major storm this weekend. road my trike over seeral miles of icy road to get to church , and to our minister's open house.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:29:27 PM] <Annie> she said it felt really weird emailing her work and saying she wouldn't be in because she couldn't get back from Florida because of snow
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:29:35 PM] <DF64> 12just no snow in florida

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:29:58 PM] <KK> There was lots of snow at Dulles, but none falling by the time we got there.

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:30:19 PM] <Laurna> Wierd Hello
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:30:21 PM] <Evie> we could hear you, but you evidently couldn't see our chat
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:30:21 PM] <jemler> brb
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:30:22 PM] <Annie> we didn't mind. We were gutted she was going to leave a day before the rest of us. She rerouted via Newark.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:30:24 PM] <Shiral> Hello again Laurna
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:30:27 PM] <DF64> 12I was born in Nebraska and grew up in Ohio
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:30:28 PM] <The_Bee> My legs are still tired from pedaling.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:30:36 PM] <Alkari> The English cricket team would cheerfully send you some Perth hot weather - over 40C last few days
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:30:54 PM] <DesertRose> That's pretty toasty, Alkari.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:30:57 PM] <DesertRose> I
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:31:09 PM] <DesertRose> I'll pass on that, but I don't want snow either.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:31:19 PM] <Jerusha> Would you mind sharing that temp, Alkari? :D
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:32:05 PM] <Alkari> 40C is a bit too hot for my liking, so I will stick to the 25-30C range we are having :)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:32:17 PM] <Annie> I still struggle with Celsius, but work on the rule of thumb that 0 is very cold, 10 is cold, 20 is nice, 30 is hot and 40 is just too hot to contemplate
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:32:31 PM] <Jerusha> It would melt the snowbank around my air conditioner
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:32:35 PM] <Evie> LOL! That works for me, Annie
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:33:04 PM] <The_Bee> C=9/5 fahrenheit +32.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:33:06 PM] <Alkari> They had a sort of rhyme when we converted - tingly teens, temperate twenties, thirsty thirties and flaming forties!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:33:10 PM] <Annie> and -10 is real brass monkey weather
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:33:18 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Annie.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:33:27 PM] <Shiral> That's "I
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:33:41 PM] <Shiral> I'm hibernating-- come back in March" weather for me
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:34:07 PM] <Jerusha> In our case, it's come back in June
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:34:18 PM] <Shiral> Been staying upstairs a lot where it's warmer, lately

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:35:58 PM] <Jerusha> KK, any word on your editor?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:36:33 PM] <Shiral> about 10 days ago, it got down into the 20's at night, high 40's low 50s during the Day
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:36:56 PM] <Shiral> down in Morgan Hill and Gilroy, it even got down into the teens, I heard
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:37:10 PM] <Shiral> It was time for wearing lots of layers
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:37:41 PM] <Shiral> Now its 50's low 60's during the days and low 40's at night
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:37:45 PM] <KK> Oh, she's fine. Back at work, has read the book and likes it, authorized the on-delivery payment, and is now swamping me with requests for info and such, as we work through the business of turning the manuscript into a book. I know know what hte cover will be, and have read the inside-cover blurb.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:38:15 PM] <Laurna> Wonderfull KK
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:38:22 PM] <Shiral> Good news. =o)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:38:25 PM] <Alkari> we didn't really get a proper winter this year.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:38:25 PM] <Alkari> I was going through my clothes and looking for stuff I hadn't worn, and realised that I had these jackets and 3/4 coats I wimply hadn't worn this year because it wasn't cold enough
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:38:25 PM] <Alkari> So I will leave them in the closet until after next winter, and see if I get to wear them then

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:39:27 PM] <Jerusha> Is the cover what you hoped for, KK?

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:45:06 PM] <DesertRose> A whole world of humor and you go for holey? :)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:45:10 PM] <Shiral> Sharon Henderston wouldn't mind that, either
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:45:22 PM] <Evie> I have craft supplies. I could make a new book cover with the McLain arms. :D

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:46:14 PM] <Evie> I'd settle for a Duncan novella.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:46:17 PM] <DesertRose> Yup. I do that all the time, though.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:46:20 PM] <Alkari> She probably wouldn't mind if you included Dhugal as well
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:46:38 PM] <Evie> Never hurts to include Dhugal.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:46:57 PM] <Alkari> If the Church has issues with Deryni magic, imagine what they'd think of Gred and Forge
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:47:09 PM] <Shiral> Loris' head would explode
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:47:16 PM] * DesertRose giggles.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:47:20 PM] <DF64> 12I'd pay to see that
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:47:24 PM] <DesertRose> It's no more than Loris deserves.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:47:26 PM] <The_Bee> Gred and Forge?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:47:38 PM] <Evie> Fred and George, Bee. From Harry Potter.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:47:43 PM] <Laurna> Dhugal did live in the castle when young. Imagin Duncan scolding this wayward boy

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:54:24 PM] <Laurna> He did more side parts in more movies than most people can count. He made a bed movie good. and a good movie great.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:54:25 PM] <Shiral> He's the actor I keep mentally casting as Camber
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:54:36 PM] <Alkari> He was truly on of those old-time 'larger than life' actors
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:54:54 PM] <Shiral> bed movies? Is that as naughty as it sounds?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:55:02 PM] <Laurna> Sorry bad
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:55:07 PM] <jemler> i just saw him in something.

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:55:27 PM] <Shiral> But I could be wrong
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:55:42 PM] <The_Bee> Did Katherine Hepburn play hisQueen?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:55:44 PM] <DF64> 12tom Laughlin of "billy jack" fame also just died
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:55:47 PM] <Shiral> Yes
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:55:49 PM] <Evie> Yes
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:56:08 PM] <jemler> of course, Troy!

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:57:19 PM] <DesertRose> Night,Annie.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:57:21 PM] <Laurna> And KK I am sorry to hear about the passing of Robert Reginald as well.

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:57:41 PM] <The_Bee> Rob died?? When?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:57:47 PM] <Evie> November 20
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:57:49 PM] <Shiral> Last month, Bee

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:57:53 PM] <DesertRose> Duck posted it to the forums.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:58:16 PM] <Evie> KK may be off reading, since I just sent her that info via PM
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:58:21 PM] <Shiral> According to Donald, he believes it was a heart attack, although Rob had been in poor health for a few weeks before
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:58:43 PM] <Alkari> rob died?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:58:54 PM] <The_Bee> I need to check the forum more often. no more awful puns.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:58:56 PM] <Alkari> Ack.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:59:08 PM] <jemler> i'm still here
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:59:20 PM] <Jerusha> That's good, Jemler
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:59:21 PM] <Shiral> He had pretty much withdrawn from fandom for a long time
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:59:36 PM] <jemler> hi texanu. didn't see you
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:59:44 PM] <jemler> no rhyme intended
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [07:59:55 PM] <jemler> are you new here?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:00:01 PM] <Alkari> brb ...
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:00:08 PM] <Jerusha> It's time for the winter finale of Once Upon a Time, so I'll see everyone next week
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:00:15 PM] <The_Bee> Hi, Texanu. You've been very quiet.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:00:15 PM] <Shiral> Bye, Jerusha
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:00:18 PM] <DesertRose> See you, Jerusha.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:00:19 PM] <Evie> She or he may be asleep by now, since Texanu is in St Petersburg. The original, not Florida

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:00:28 PM] <The_Bee> bye jerusha
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:00:35 PM] <The_Bee> missed
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:00:44 PM] <KK> Yes, I was reading. That's a shock, though I'd guess it was his heart. It looks like, if there's to be another edition of the Codex, to take it through the new book, it'll have to be moi. I must contact Mary and see what the status is..
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:01:16 PM] <DesertRose> It was a shock.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:01:18 PM] <Shiral> Duck thought it was Rob's heart, too KK
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:01:31 PM] <Shiral> Evidently, he'd been in poor health for the month before he died
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:02:29 PM] <KK> I also want to say that I think he might have been diabetic, in later years. And of course his heart was broken when his niece was killed, some years ago.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:02:40 PM] <Alkari> I just hadn't been onto that part of the board
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:02:43 PM] <Laurna> Oh wow I had not thought about an Updated Codex. That would be great if it could happen.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:02:50 PM] <Shiral> Yes, he had that trouble too
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:03:05 PM] <Alkari> I know I had exchanged emails with him a few times about Codex stuff
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:03:14 PM] <Evie> There were plans for an electronic update, Laurna, which would have the benefit of being searchable.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:03:23 PM] <Shiral> I will miss him, although I hadn't been in much contact with him in recent years
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:03:47 PM] <The_Bee> I only knew him from the Codex.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:04:25 PM] <Shiral> Rob's days of contributing to the NG well predated the boards, It was around the time the original Codex was in production about a decade ago
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:05:42 PM] <Texanu> Bee, hi. I'm reading very attentively what you are writing
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:06:05 PM] <The_Bee> I hope you're enjoying it.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:06:34 PM] <KK> Fortunately, I do have an electronic copy of Codex 2, so I could work from that. As co-author, I don't think there'd be any problem. Like I said, I'll have to check with Mary. Or maybe my agent can sort things out.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:06:43 PM] <Shiral> Susan and I had a great dinner with Rob and Mary at Westercon in 1998
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:07:50 PM] <Shiral> At his best, he was very witty and entertaining
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:08:22 PM] <KK> Indeed.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:08:40 PM] <Shiral> I don't think I slept much that whole weekend, I was on such a high. =o)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:09:18 PM] <Laurna> KK How long did it take to compile all that information in the Codex. Must have been years.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:09:19 PM] <The_Bee> Codex 2 should keep Lake Pericomo and the aqui-ducks in his memory.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:09:32 PM] <Alkari> Live on adrenaline at those things, I suspect
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:10:25 PM] <Shiral> On the first full day of the con, Susan and I asked each other "did you get any sleep last night?" :"NO, did you?" that was the origin of the Zipper Sisters
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:10:41 PM] <Alkari> lol
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:10:43 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:10:52 PM] <Laurna> love it
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:11:17 PM] <Shiral> Since we were banned from revealing anything we'd learned that was not in the prologue and first chapter of KKB
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:11:37 PM] <KK> Rob compiled the raw data from my many, many notebooks of genealogies and character descriptions and the like (in the days before computers, mind you), and then set about using his brilliant librarian skills to compile it in codex form.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:11:56 PM] <The_Bee> ? I thought the Zipper Sisters came before KKB
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:12:44 PM] <Laurna> wow KK
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:12:48 PM] <Evie> And you have a LOT of characters, KK
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:12:51 PM] <KK> They did, but the process overlapped.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:13:01 PM] <Shiral> It did, bee. That was before KKB was published. KK read those passages at Westercon in 1998, but the night before the reading.... she talked about KKB extensively. And Susan and I had the good luck to be there.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:13:20 PM] <Alkari> Yes, people mutter about George Martin's cast of thousands in Game of Thrones, but your world has just as many!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:13:40 PM] <KK> Probably so.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:14:13 PM] <Shiral> Two separate timelines and 2 trilogies each so... yes. That's a lotta people
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:14:16 PM] <Alkari> And you are just as bloodthirsty about killing people off! :D
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:14:17 PM] <Shiral> =o)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:14:23 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:14:39 PM] <KK> Perhaps more tastefully, though. ;-)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:14:47 PM] <Evie> Yeah, you don't shirk from that work. ;-)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:15:03 PM] <Alkari> IS there a 'tasteful' way of killing people?!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:15:10 PM] <The_Bee> eat them
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:15:13 PM] <DesertRose> Sometimes you have to kill off characters for plot reasons.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:15:15 PM] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:15:23 PM] <DesertRose> Yikes, Bee. :)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:15:23 PM] <KK> Of course. Often it's done "off camera".
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:15:47 PM] <Laurna> Tastefully
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:15:52 PM] <Alkari> That doesn't count as a 'proper' death though :D
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:16:15 PM] <KK> Sometimes I even let them go gently.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:16:20 PM] <Shiral> Sometimes, you have to dump the nasty priest headfirst down a well!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:16:27 PM] <Alkari> lol
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:16:30 PM] <KK> I rather liiked that one.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:16:36 PM] <DesertRose> He deserved it.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:16:40 PM] <Shiral> If anyone did, yes!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:16:49 PM] <Evie> Hard on the well, though. ;-)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:17:06 PM] <Laurna> Don't drink the water
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:17:09 PM] <DesertRose> Anybody who does something that heinous to a little kid deserves the same fate.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:17:13 PM] <Alkari> and people who might want to use it later ...:(
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:17:15 PM] <Shiral> Krispin deserved better thought
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:17:21 PM] <Shiral> though
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:17:45 PM] <Shiral> Although we got Alaric, so perhaps he had to die
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:17:49 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, he did.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:17:53 PM] <DesertRose> Maybe.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:18:07 PM] <DesertRose> But I felt horrible for Krispin.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:18:18 PM] <Shiral> Krispin might have grown up to be a very interesting man
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:18:30 PM] <Laurna> Imagin Alaric and Krispin growing up as friends the kingdom would be in trouble then.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:18:32 PM] <DesertRose> He might have.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:18:34 PM] <KK> I suspect he might have done.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:18:51 PM] <Alkari> Yes, that would certainly have been interesting
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:19:08 PM] <Shiral> The Camberian Council would have been fit to be tied if he'd lived though. Seeing how hard they were on Jessamy
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:19:30 PM] <DesertRose> The Camberian Council of that era had sticks up their behinds anyway. :P
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:19:32 PM] <Evie> It would make an interesting AU spin-off story, having Krispin and Alaric both grow up at Court
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:19:59 PM] <Shiral> They still sometimes behave as if they'd collectively sat down on something sharp. =o):P
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:20:05 PM] <DesertRose> Indeed.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:20:06 PM] <The_Bee> big age difference between them. big and little brother relationship maybe.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:20:32 PM] <Alkari> Well, Denis Arilan in particular. I keep wanting to plant a whoopee cushion under him ;)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:20:33 PM] <KK> I have to wonder whether Alaric would have accomplished as much, if the pressure hadn't been on him to be there for Brion.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:20:35 PM] <Evie> There's an age difference between Brion and Alaric too, but that doesn't seem to bother them
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:20:52 PM] <Shiral> This is true. Let's keep Alaric
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:20:54 PM] <Shiral> =o)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:21:01 PM] <Laurna> Brion with those two behind him would have been invincible.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:21:05 PM] Quit DF64 has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:21:13 PM] * Evie wonders if there are 1:6 scale whoopie cushions....
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:21:15 PM] <Alkari> I think he still would have been targeted though KK
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:21:25 PM] <Alkari> And that would have driven Alaric in many ways
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:21:25 PM] <Shiral> On the other hand, maybe there would have been a lot of jealous tension between Krispin and Alaric
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:21:31 PM] <KK> Alaric might not have riden to his full potential, though, if he hadn't had to.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:22:18 PM] <DesertRose> True.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:22:18 PM] <The_Bee> That was Conall's downfall. He wasn't forced to grow up.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:22:49 PM] * Shiral has silly vision of young Deryni playing tricks on their elders with cushions....
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:22:55 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:23:09 PM] <Alkari> I think the Chruch would have forced Alaric to grow up quickly anyway. Even if he wasn't under their noses in Rhemuth, they would not have wanted him as Duke of Corwyn
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:23:21 PM] <Laurna> Oh well better not change history then.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:23:22 PM] <Shiral> Neither were Rory and Payne though. And they seem to have weathered that better
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:23:31 PM] <Laurna> I need Alaric just as he is.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:23:44 PM] <DesertRose> Conall was just a brat, I think. He could have chosen to act better than he did.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:23:53 PM] <Alkari> Yes. And so does Richenda ;)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:23:55 PM] <Shiral> They had a very good role model in their father, after all. And plenty of benevolent discipline in their lives as Conall would have had
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:24:05 PM] <Shiral> Me too, Laurna
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:24:42 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:24:48 PM] <The_Bee> Nigel should have packed Conall off to Carthmoor and had him apprenticed to his steward.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:25:07 PM] <Alkari> I think he still would have been a jealous little so and so.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:25:16 PM] <Alkari> NO matter what his training
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:25:54 PM] <The_Bee> but he would have seen his own inheritance, insted of what he couldn't have.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:25:55 PM] <Shiral> Probably. Although it can't have been easy growing up as Kelson's cousin. Was there anything Kelson didn't excel at?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:26:04 PM] <Alkari> Sending him to Carthmoor or wherever might have knocked 'some' sense into him, but I think he was just that sort of person. The old Nature vs Nurture argument
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:26:16 PM] <The_Bee> and of Coulrse Kelson was the court favorite.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:26:22 PM] <Evie> Marriage proposals, Shiral. ;-)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:26:30 PM] <Shiral> And the heir and the King's son.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:26:50 PM] <Shiral> Okay, you have a point.. Araxie really should have said "Nope, try again!"
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:27:18 PM] <The_Bee> Trying to keep up with a boy just a few months over than you can be frustrating.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:27:24 PM] <The_Bee> older
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:28:41 PM] * KK thinks that evie could certainly manufacture 1:6 scale whoopie cushions--perhaps not functional, though.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:28:49 PM] <The_Bee> Mom once said I could have kept up with my older sister, but I couldn't keep with my older sister trying to keep up with our older brother.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:28:50 PM] <Evie> "Araxie, will you marry me? I really need to breed. But you need to know that I'm in love with someone else, and I'll always be pining for her even once I've settled for marrying someone else. Fortunately you're the best of the lot that's on offer...." ;-)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:29:24 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Evie.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:29:35 PM] <Evie> Function is half the fun, KK. Though I guess since Mini-Denis couldn't react to a functional one, a non-functional one would do.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:30:25 PM] <Shiral> "You're the most eligible single hunk in the XI kingdoms , Cousin Dear, but that's a little too much truth in advertising..."
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:30:32 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:30:36 PM] <DesertRose> Teehee.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:30:40 PM] <Alkari> The alternative dialogue to KKB
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:31:53 PM] <Evie> I felt for the poor heir of Orsal, though; reduced to having to wait for Kelson to pick a bride before the ladies would consider him as a potential husband. :D
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:32:07 PM] <DesertRose> Poor kid.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:32:08 PM] <Texanu> What is KKB? :s Can't understand..))
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:32:15 PM] <Evie> King Kelson's Bride
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:32:38 PM] <The_Bee> the bride he finally got to keep.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:32:38 PM] <Evie> Probably has a different title there, but it's the one in which Kelson finally gets married.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:32:54 PM] <DesertRose> And stays married long enough to get out of the church.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:33:02 PM] <Shiral> Now he'll have to wait until Liam of Torenth is betrothed, since Liam is now the new hot Single King around. =o)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:33:04 PM] <The_Bee> and into bed
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:33:10 PM] <DesertRose> That too, Bee.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:33:37 PM] <Shiral> They did manage that much in KKB. =o) And then got busy with the Heir Production
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:34:04 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:34:06 PM] <Alkari> I like the idea of Liam as the new 'hot single'
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:34:09 PM] <DesertRose> According to Codex, they didn't mess around with that, either.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:34:15 PM] <Texanu> Oh, really. I start not to trust the translations.. :( Thanks))
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:34:28 PM] <Laurna> And I hope have Heirs, many heirs

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:34:58 PM] <Alkari> yuk
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:35:02 PM] <DesertRose> Not too many, for Araxie's body's sake.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:35:11 PM] <Shiral> If Kelson's kids took up weaving, would they work on Heirlooms?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:35:17 PM] <DesertRose> Too many babies too quickly is not good for one's health. :)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:35:20 PM] <The_Bee> LOL

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:35:40 PM] <The_Bee> jumpd or pushed?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:35:40 PM] <Evie> Have you read the one yet in which Kelson brings Prince Liam back to Torenth? That's the book we call KKB over here, Texanu.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:35:48 PM] <Shiral> Bad Pun in memory of Rob Reginald

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:36:21 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, then I won't break out the fish with which I'd normally hit someone for that sort of thing. :)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:36:23 PM] <KK> Texanu, it's probably wise not to trust the translations too much. I know that my dear friend in Austria, who is totally bilingual in German and English, practically refuses to read thebooks in German, because so many of the nuances of language just don't make it through the translation process.

[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:36:35 PM] <DesertRose> Rehi Laurna.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:36:49 PM] <Shiral> Hello again Laurna
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:36:59 PM] <Laurna> My turn for disconnects.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:38:57 PM] <Shiral> DR, indeed. Although if she's of Von Horthy Stock, then Araxie will hopefully have babies without undue distress to herself
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:38:59 PM] <Evie> rehi
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:39:39 PM] <jemler> although the royal nursery will need to be enlarged!
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:39:59 PM] <The_Bee> Just how is Araxie connected to the Von Horthys? Her father was Kelson's great-uncle, Wasn't he?
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:40:14 PM] <Shiral> Maybe not, Donal Haldane had a big family, too
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:40:17 PM] <Evie> when it comes to royal families, too many sons can be just as bad as too few, at least if you look at real world history.
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:40:26 PM] <Shiral> Her mother is the Orsal's sister
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:40:43 PM] <Evie> Too many sons can lead to a lot of rivalry in a culture where primogeniture determines inheritance
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:40:45 PM] <The_Bee> ah, thanks
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:40:49 PM] <jemler> letald
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:40:50 PM] <DesertRose> True, Evie. :)
[Sunday, December 15, 2013] [08:41:02 PM] <Shiral> And her mother had a lot of babies, herself
"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.)
