[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:02:35 PM] <jemler> hi bee
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:02:40 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Bee
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:02:46 PM] <The_Bee> Hi Jemler and Annie.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:02:53 PM] <KK> Everybody ready for Christmas?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:03:00 PM] * DesertRose passes around tacos and Spanish rice, because that's all she has cooked today. :)
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:03:04 PM] <Jerusha> Mostly. Still wrapping to do
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:03:12 PM] <DesertRose> Not quite. Still stitching on my daughter's present.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:03:18 PM] <DesertRose> How about you?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:03:21 PM] <Annie> have to do wrapping yet
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:03:27 PM] * The_Bee sets out hochocolate and hot mulled cider, with brandy on the side.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:03:59 PM] <KK> Still have to do the last grocery run, and fiish changing the other 2 cat boxes, but other than that, I'm pretty much ready.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:04:02 PM] <The_Bee> I wrapped yesterd. I't find my scissors, so it was pretty sloppy wrapping.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:04:13 PM] <Annie> I was just telling DR, I've snagged some front row tickets for Tom Hiddleston in Coriolanus as a surprise pressie for my DD. Who is a Shakespeare buff and loves Tom Hiddleston.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:04:14 PM] * jemler puts out some mead he got the other day
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:04:25 PM] <KK> Wow, cool.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:04:30 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, you finally got your hands on some mead, jemler?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:04:36 PM] <The_Bee> My sister's coming to get Melantha and me tomorrow.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:04:40 PM] <Jerusha> Neat, Annie. How old is DD now?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:04:42 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, I was telling Annie that I'd kill for those seats.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:05:02 PM] <jemler> i ordered some from a site called hidden legends
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:05:34 PM] <jemler> they also sell spiced mead, as well as melomels.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:05:38 PM] <DesertRose> Nice.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:05:50 PM] <KK> We have one of the top Shakespeare theatres in the US, right here in Staunton: Blackfriars, which is a replica of his first indoor theatre.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:05:59 PM] <DesertRose> Oh cool.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:06:00 PM] <Annie> she's 16, but has been going to Shakespeare with me since she saw David Tennant in Hamlet at 11.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:06:13 PM] <jemler> the only problem was, no corkscrew! had to borrow my sisters.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:06:28 PM] <Jerusha> If I had seen David Tennant in Hamliet I'd be going to Shakespeare! :)
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:06:30 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, I'd have killed for those seats, too, Annie. :D
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:06:35 PM] <Annie> I like melomels better than straight mead
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:06:52 PM] <KK> Not a big mead fan; too heavy.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:06:58 PM] <Annie> he's playing Richard II to rave reviews at the moment
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:07:01 PM] <Jerusha> Too sweat
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:07:07 PM] <KK> That, too.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:07:08 PM] <DesertRose> So I've heard, Annie.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:07:09 PM] <The_Bee> melomels? honey mead? I thought all mead was made from honey.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:07:18 PM] <jemler> it was dry mead that i ordered. i will order spiced later.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:07:28 PM] <Jerusha> I meant sweet
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:07:31 PM] <DesertRose> It depends, Jerusha. You can make mead that isn't super sweet, even though it's made from honey.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:08:06 PM] <Annie> melomel is honey and fruit
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:08:09 PM] <The_Bee> I'd like to get mead to take to Vermont, but most of my family don't like sweet wine.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:08:18 PM] <jemler> melomel is mead that is fermented with fruit like peaches. if you use apples it is called a cyser, grapes is a pyment.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:08:24 PM] <The_Bee> thanks, An nie!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:08:27 PM] <Annie> my mead came out pretty dry
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:08:39 PM] <Annie> the blackberry melomel was lethal!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:08:43 PM] <KK> Jemler, sounds like you're a mead fan.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:09:01 PM] <jemler> someone on fb used ghost chilis in mead!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:09:04 PM] <The_Bee> I could get some in a local package store. They include and envelope of spices.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:09:05 PM] <Annie> it seemed pretty innocuous, until you tried to stand up and your knees wouldn't lock in place
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:09:57 PM] <jemler> i've been trying to get mead for a while. i joined a mead page on fb. they're goos at answering questions.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:10:08 PM] <jemler> good, sorry
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:10:13 PM] <The_Bee> Do you have their name?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:10:54 PM] <jemler> who are you asking, bee?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:11:07 PM] <The_Bee> for the facebook mead page
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:11:20 PM] <jemler> just look for Mead
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:11:27 PM] <The_Bee> ah, ok thanks
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:12:03 PM] <jemler> one guy made a label of Lionel Richie, and called his mead 'Hello, is it mead you're looking for?'
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:12:11 PM] <DesertRose> OMG.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:12:15 PM] * DesertRose rolls her eyes.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:12:24 PM] <Annie> *groans*
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:12:25 PM] <The_Bee> My family celebrates Christmas eve with pork pies and ice-cream sundaes.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:12:27 PM] <Jerusha> *Jerusha shakes her head
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:12:28 PM] <jemler> i asked him about 'Say you, say mead'
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:12:36 PM] <Annie> I can see why that would appeal to you, jemler
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:12:51 PM] * DesertRose loads up a catapult with a lot of goldfish and launches them at jemler.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:13:21 PM] <Jerusha> *Jerusha soaks smelt in mead, then flings
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:13:32 PM] <jemler> they post pix of the various meads they are making. and tyhere are clips on youtube as well.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:14:10 PM] <jemler> jerusha, forget the fish. throw the mead!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:14:25 PM] <DesertRose> She's going to beat you over the head with the mead bottle. :D
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:14:45 PM] <Jerusha> *Jerusha fills a bucket with mead, then loads it on her catapult
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:15:54 PM] * The_Bee wishes she had a glass of hot spiced mead right now.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:16:07 PM] <Jerusha> Any news on DM3 KK?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:16:20 PM] <Annie> I could do with one too, Bee. Temperature has dropped way down last day or two.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:16:47 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, KK, Evie may or may not make it tonight because she and her daughter are doing some last minute Christmas shopping.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:16:59 PM] <Jerusha> We nave snow, snow, and more snow. Better than the freezing rain to the south of us
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:17:13 PM] <jemler> it is 60F her in ohio tonite
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:17:13 PM] <Annie> brrrrr

[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:17:46 PM] <Jerusha> Sorry, KK, typo. CM3
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:17:49 PM] <DesertRose> When are you leaving for Vermont, Bee?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:18:03 PM] <The_Bee> tomorrow, if all goes as planned.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:18:09 PM] <DesertRose> Travel safely.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:18:17 PM] <KK> It's scheduled for release next December. I have to get the chapter headings done in the next few weeks.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:18:24 PM] <The_Bee> If the weather cooperates.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:18:39 PM] <Annie> yay
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:18:40 PM] * DesertRose crosses fingers that the weather will behave itself.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:18:41 PM] <Jerusha> *Jerusha wonders how she will last the year
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:19:16 PM] <jemler> jerusha, re-read all the other books
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:19:23 PM] <The_Bee> It's going on my 2014 christmas list--the book, not the weather.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:19:25 PM] <Jerusha> I have, Jemler!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:20:00 PM] <Jerusha> Except for the Camber books, but I will
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:20:14 PM] <jemler> what color were the eyes of denis arilans mother?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:20:53 PM] <Jerusha> Drat, My Codex is at work
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:20:54 PM] <Annie> we need Alkari for all the really obsessive details, jemler!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:21:24 PM] <jemler> he told cardiel right before he revealed himself as deryni.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:22:02 PM] <jemler> do you wanrt the answer?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:22:27 PM] <Jerusha> Of course!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:22:37 PM] <jemler> "My mother's eyes were grey"
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:23:26 PM] <Annie> cool
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:23:35 PM] <Jerusha> Interesting that grey eyes are the most rare eye colour, but there are a lot in Gwynedd
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:24:01 PM] <Annie> It's fantasy. It doesn't have to follow real world rules.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:24:07 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:24:13 PM] <Jerusha> This is a good thing
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:24:15 PM] <Annie> That's generally my get out of jail free card.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:24:28 PM] <jemler> i like my blue eyes!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:25:25 PM] <The_Bee> I plan to keep my eyes; they're the only ones I have.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:25:50 PM] <Jerusha> I need mine for CM3
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:26:45 PM] <Jerusha> And a few other things :)
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:27:14 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, functioning eyes are a good thing. :)
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:28:16 PM] <Jerusha> KK, did your trip to Europe give you ideas for a future story with references to Torenth?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:28:44 PM] <KK> It makes me want to do the St. Petersburg to Moscow cruise.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:28:57 PM] <Jerusha> That would be fascinating
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:28:57 PM] <DesertRose> Ooh, I bet that's lovely.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:28:59 PM] <Annie> I'd love to go to St Petersburg
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:29:03 PM] <Annie> it's on my bucket list
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:29:10 PM] <The_Bee> Is Torenth mostly Byzantian-inspired or Russian-inspired? or Greek?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:30:33 PM] <KK> Vaguely Eastern, elements of all three.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:30:50 PM] <The_Bee> ah. sort of mysterious
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:31:32 PM] <Jerusha> very mysterious, Torenthi
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:33:35 PM] * The_Bee drops a pin.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:33:53 PM] <Jerusha> *Jerusha thinks she heard it
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:34:26 PM] <Annie> obviously the ones who are absent are the chatterboxes!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:35:05 PM] <The_Bee> KK, are you taking a break before starting on your next Adept novel?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:36:01 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:37:09 PM] <KK> Yes, and wrapping up some unfinished details that were let slide while I was finishing the book.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:37:19 PM] <KK> Haven't decided what the next project will be yet.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:37:43 PM] <Jerusha> Will you ever do the story of Morgan's and Richenda's wedding?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:39:27 PM] <jemler> i just sent a picture of a bottle of mead to rc.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:39:57 PM] <KK> Would ony do that wedding if it were in the context of a short story.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:40:16 PM] <Jerusha> Short story is fine by me.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:40:24 PM] <jemler> another short story collection!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:40:56 PM] <Jerusha> And maybe Duncan's ordination? (I don't ask for much, do I? :) )
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:41:05 PM] <The_Bee> Brendan is ring bearer, loses the ring just before the ceremony.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:41:38 PM] <Annie> I guess wedding ceremonies would have been pretty different then, were they?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:41:40 PM] <jemler> frodo had the same problem! :)
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:41:40 PM] <Jerusha> Morgan enlists Arilan to scry for it
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:41:42 PM] * jemler ducks
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:42:06 PM] * DesertRose loads a pea-shooter with minced whiting and shoots it at jemler.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:42:08 PM] <Annie> Sam Gamgee offers to carry the ring for Brendan
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:42:30 PM] <The_Bee> maybe subconscious protest by Brendan--doesn't want another man taking beloved Daddy's place.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:42:53 PM] Quit Annie has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:42:54 PM] <The_Bee> Aftr all, he's only a litttle boy at the time.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:43:06 PM] <jemler> beloved daddy is deader than last weeks meatloaf!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:43:06 PM] <Jerusha> He could have a long talk with Duncan

[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:44:09 PM] <The_Bee> We're all peerless now.

[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:46:58 PM] <DesertRose> Thanks, Bee.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:47:03 PM] <DesertRose> That should make a nice mess.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:47:21 PM] <jemler> suger coated calamari

[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:47:43 PM] <jemler> i've never eaten calamari
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:47:46 PM] <DesertRose> KK, have we lost you with our antics?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:48:15 PM] <The_Bee> I have. Depends how it's prepared. Okay if not too rubbery.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:49:51 PM] <Jerusha> Might be better than eels
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:50:06 PM] <KK> Honey-coted calimari? Yuck!

[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:52:17 PM] <Jerusha> Scarfing up the tuna
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:52:33 PM] <The_Bee> Mickey went home, Melantha's around somewhere.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:52:36 PM] <Annie> I have 2 curled up near me. One on a cushion and one on DH's old dressing gown, which they love to sleep on.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:53:02 PM] <jemler> with all this major fish fly we've got going on, i thought they'd be here!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:53:10 PM] <KK> Gus is in his usual basket above my desk, and Sasha has found a new box to curl up in.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:53:17 PM] <DesertRose> Ah, yes, boxes.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:53:39 PM] <The_Bee> I bought a new carry-bag for Melantha. It lets her stick her head out while confining the rewt of her.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:53:50 PM] <The_Bee> rest
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:54:01 PM] <DesertRose> Where do you take her?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:54:08 PM] <Annie> I'm going to turn in, chaps and chapesses. It's blinking freezing here, and the warmth of my bed is calling to me.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:54:11 PM] <The_Bee> Vermont or the vet
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:54:16 PM] <DesertRose> Ah.

[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:55:15 PM] <DesertRose> Damn. Missed her.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:55:37 PM] <KK> So, Bee, are you going to Vermont for Christmas, and taking Melantha?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:56:28 PM] <The_Bee> Yes. My relatives are kind enough to come and get us, because the bus won't accept pets. I repay them a bit by treating them to lunch on the way.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:56:46 PM] <Jerusha> Nice, Bee
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:56:55 PM] <DesertRose> That's cool of them, Bee.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:57:18 PM] <The_Bee> Very cool. I try not to feel too guilty about it.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:57:37 PM] <Jerusha> You shouldn't. It's Christmas
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:57:50 PM] <KK> Yes, they must love you, or they wouldn
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:57:59 PM] <KK> t do it. Have a wonderful time.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:58:04 PM] <The_Bee> I'm wondering what Christmas dinner will be like; my sister's gone vegan.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:58:04 PM] <DesertRose> How long are you staying, Bee?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:58:21 PM] <Jerusha> Tofurky?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:58:26 PM] <jemler> she only eats vegetarians?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:58:33 PM] <The_Bee> depends on their convenience and the weather forecast.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:58:58 PM] <DesertRose> jemler, you're going to get decapitated with a swordfish here in a minute.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:59:10 PM] <The_Bee> I'm tempted to ask if I can crash another relative's dinner; I have several in Montpelier.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:59:12 PM] <jemler> lol
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:59:42 PM] <Jerusha> I can understand that
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [07:59:59 PM] <The_Bee> port pies on xmas eve.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:00:00 PM] <KK> Or tell Melantha to catch ou a turkey for the two of you.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:00:05 PM] <The_Bee> pork pies
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:00:38 PM] <Jerusha> Port pies could be good, if a nice vintage. :)
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:00:43 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:00:50 PM] <jemler> a full pound of bacon, baked in a pie! what a concept!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:01:09 PM] <The_Bee> I've cooked with sweet shery, but not with port.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:01:42 PM] <Jerusha> I have a lovely recipe for mushrooms sautéed in brandy
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:02:00 PM] <The_Bee> ground beef and pork with spices. A French-Canadian friend of my mom gave her the recipe.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:02:00 PM] <Jerusha> Good on steak or cheeseburgers.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:02:22 PM] <The_Bee> chicken legs with sherry and garlic.

[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:03:02 PM] <EvieOnPhone> Hi
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:03:18 PM] <The_Bee> I'd love a recipe for goulash; I can't find any Hungarian restaurants near here.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:03:23 PM] <The_Bee> Hi Evie!!!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:03:30 PM] <The_Bee> shopping all done?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:03:38 PM] <Jerusha> How was shopping, Evie?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:03:39 PM] <DesertRose> Laurna dropped by before chat and asked me to tell everybody Merry Christmas from her.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:03:41 PM] <EvieOnPhone> Taking a shopping break so DD can have frozen yogurt
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:03:56 PM] <KK> Hi, Evie. How's the shoulder?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:04:59 PM] <EvieOnPhone> Ok enough for me to go out shopping for a bit, but the cortisone shot didn't help
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:05:06 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, no.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:05:07 PM] <The_Bee> :(
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:05:12 PM] <Jerusha> No?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:05:38 PM] <The_Bee> What to try next?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:05:44 PM] <EvieOnPhone> So the doc has given me Lortab for day and a muscle relaxer so I can sleep
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:05:52 PM] <DesertRose> Fun.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:05:58 PM] <The_Bee> hope it works.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:06:00 PM] <Jerusha> Not fun
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:06:14 PM] <EvieOnPhone> It seems to be working ok, but I'm always drowsy
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:06:22 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, those kinds of meds will do that.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:06:24 PM] <The_Bee> My arthritis is better today.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:06:33 PM] <Jerusha> That's good, Bee
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:06:50 PM] <EvieOnPhone> At least I am able to sleep for most of the night now
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:06:55 PM] <DesertRose> Sleep is good.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:07:19 PM] <EvieOnPhone> Glad yours is better, Bee
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:07:37 PM] <Jerusha> Is your shoulder supposed to heal over time, Evie?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:07:44 PM] <The_Bee> Now if only my computer would get better...
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:08:11 PM] <EvieOnPhone> Yes, Jerusha, but it might be a few months
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:08:23 PM] <DesertRose> Ouch.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:08:24 PM] <jemler> maybe santa will bring you a new one.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:08:24 PM] <Jerusha> :(
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:08:54 PM] <The_Bee> a warm shoulder, not a cold one.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:09:09 PM] <EvieOnPhone> A New computer for Bee or a new shoulder for me?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:09:20 PM] <The_Bee> Yes!!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:09:23 PM] <DesertRose> Both? :)
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:09:25 PM] <Jerusha> Why not?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:09:40 PM] <jemler> only if you're on santas nice list!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:09:49 PM] <The_Bee> virtual gifts are cheap and easy to install.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:10:09 PM] <EvieOnPhone> I'd be happy to keep the old shoulder. I just want it fixed.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:10:14 PM] <Jerusha> *Jerusha sends Evie a virtual Duncan
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:10:20 PM] <The_Bee> I din't ask for a computer, but I sort of asked for a guru.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:10:59 PM] <EvieOnPhone> I'll have to give virtual Duncan a left armed hug. Best I can manage right now. ;)
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:11:10 PM] <The_Bee> I'll be using my laptop in Vermont.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:11:24 PM] <jemler> but duncan is a healer!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:12:36 PM] <EvieOnPhone> That's right! In that case I'll have him lay healing hands on my arm tonight right after I take my muscle relaxer
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:13:01 PM] <EvieOnPhone> I'm sure he'll do swift work ;)
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:13:07 PM] <DesertRose> :)
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:13:16 PM] <jemler> he could heal your shoulder and put you to sleep.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:13:17 PM] <Jerusha> Of course he will!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:13:37 PM] <KK> Just imagine it strongly, and perhaps it wioll be.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:13:40 PM] <KK> will
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:13:59 PM] <EvieOnPhone> Helena is sitting by my bed right now. Maybe she can help too
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:14:18 PM] <The_Bee> Hello, Helena.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:14:39 PM] <EvieOnPhone> Gigi snuck in last night to give me purr therapy
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:14:48 PM] <The_Bee> awww!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:14:55 PM] <Jerusha> That should have been helpful
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:14:57 PM] <jemler> you got a cat scan!

[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:15:31 PM] <The_Bee> I get a cat nip when Melantha wants breakfast.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:15:34 PM] <EvieOnPhone> It was of psychological benefit at least
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:16:07 PM] <Jerusha> The pre-furred treatment
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:16:16 PM] * DesertRose rolls her eyes.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:16:24 PM] <DesertRose> The puns have been flying tonight.
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:16:26 PM] <jemler> why did they ever combine words like 'psycho' and 'logical'?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:16:35 PM] <EvieOnPhone> She waits until I'm too tired to move before she joins me, so she won't get evicted
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:16:44 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:16:57 PM] <Jerusha> Cats are smart that way. So are dogs

[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:17:30 PM] <Jerusha> Jemler!
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:17:30 PM] <The_Bee> How come it's ok to call a telekinetic a psychokinetic, but not to call a telepath a psychopath?

[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:19:28 PM] <Jerusha> You are not in TN yet, Evie?
[Sunday, December 22, 2013] [08:19:28 PM] <EvieOnPhone> Don't be cruel to swordfish

"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.)
