[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:05:45 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12hi all
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:05:46 PM] <Evie> LOL, DR
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:05:48 PM] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:05:48 PM] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:05:49 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12hi kk
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:05:50 PM] <Evie> hi, KK
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:05:51 PM] <the_Bee> Hi KK
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:05:56 PM] <Sarah_working> hi KK
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:06:03 PM] <LeDuc> in a five gallon stainless steel pot
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:06:09 PM] <KK> Wow, we've got a crowd tonight
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:06:13 PM] <DesertRose> That's a big freaking pot, LeDuc.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:06:19 PM] <Evie> yup. Just for you. ;-)
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:06:27 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12and a new once upon a time and downton abbey
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:06:31 PM] <jemler> duck was here, but he ducked out :)
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:06:35 PM] <KK> including Gus, who is chewing on my fingers while I try to type.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:06:39 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Gus!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:06:44 PM] <the_Bee> hi gus
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:06:51 PM] <LeDuc> We had 8 others for Sunday dinner, the soup was good, thick and HOT!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:06:59 PM] <DesertRose> Merlin has come home, and he likes to chew on toes.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:07:14 PM] <Evie> do not torture me by telling me there's a new Downton Abbey! I discovered Season One on Netflix and devoured it in two days, and we don't have Seasons two or three yet!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:07:31 PM] <DesertRose> Not on Netflix, unless you have the DVD mailing service.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:07:33 PM] <LeDuc> hi KK, I'm not here often, so this is quite the thing for me
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:07:39 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12 2 and 3 are on DVD to buy too
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:07:41 PM] <KK> Netflix should have 2.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:07:57 PM] <DesertRose> Netflix has 2 on DVD but not on streaming.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:08:02 PM] <KK> And I know how season 3 ends, but I'm ;not spoiling.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:08:03 PM] <Evie> Netflix doesn't have two yet on streaming
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:08:05 PM] <DesertRose> I don't know why it's not available on streaming.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:08:31 PM] <DesertRose> So KK, how was your New Year's?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:08:36 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12why ask why
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:08:44 PM] <KK> I think tonight may be the wedding--or maybe just prep for the wedding.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:08:58 PM] <Evie> even the kids loved it
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:09:23 PM] <DesertRose> You might be able to get a hold of Season 2 on PBS.org, Evie.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:09:24 PM] <Evie> then again, my son usually enjoys period movies/TV series
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:09:37 PM] <KK> New Year's was delightful. We had dinner with friends--I had a great chunk of grilled salmon--and then all 4 os us went to another set of friends and saw in the new year.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:09:47 PM] <the_Bee> KK: wedding in your book or on Downton Abbey?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:10:52 PM] <DesertRose> Sounds good, KK.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:10:53 PM] <Evie> I went to a 1940s themed New Year party. There are photos online, but they're on Facebook, so not sure if they'd be visible if I linked to them here unless everyone has a Facebook id and is logged in
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:10:59 PM] <KK> On Downton Abbey. Brion still hasn't met Jehana yet, though he's on his way; in Fallon, now about to meet the king's daughter.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:11:05 PM] <Evie> I'll see if I can upload some from my camera to Flickr when i get a chance
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:11:19 PM] <DesertRose> That sounds like fun, Evie.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:11:20 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12I was at a football game--my Nebraska lost to Georgia
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:11:32 PM] <KK> Oh well....
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:11:56 PM] <DesertRose> I was in Myrtle Beach, SC, in a rented condo, hanging out with my mom and daughter, and we drank up my mom's bottle of Moet et Chandon White Star.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:12:12 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12but my birthday is wednesday and my niece has her's on thursday
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:12:17 PM] <LeDuc> 1 yr of football in high school cured me of THAT game
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:12:17 PM] <Evie> I'm trying to remember where Fallon is in the geography. *squints at wall map of Eleven Kingdoms in dimly lit room*
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:12:22 PM] <DesertRose> pbs.org is being stupid right now, but you may be able to get ahold of Downton season 2 on pbs.org.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:12:22 PM] <the_Bee> Have the wedding arrangements been made for Brion and Jehana, and can either one still back out?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:12:23 PM] <KK> That sounds worthy. Our champagne wasn't very mice.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:12:25 PM] <jemler> can i see some id dr?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:12:30 PM] <DesertRose> Ours was great.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:12:34 PM] <KK> No and no, Bee.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:12:37 PM] <LeDuc> N or Bremagne, S of Fianna
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:13:09 PM] <LeDuc> and immediately S of Fallon
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:13:10 PM] <DesertRose> I pestered Mom into bringing it to Myrtle Beach because it had been sitting in the liquor cabinet for about six years. I told her it wasn't going to keep forever and we should drink it, so we did.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:13:10 PM] <the_Bee> so they're marrying sight unseen?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:13:16 PM] <KK> It's on the way.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:13:21 PM] <Evie> neither one had better back out...we want Kelson to be born! :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:13:42 PM] <KK> They aren't marrying yet; they're just meeting. Wedding will be later.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:13:46 PM] <DesertRose> jemler, my KID is almost old enough to drink legally. I think I'm of age. :P
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:14:08 PM] <DesertRose> DD will be 21 in September of this year.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:14:12 PM] <jemler> yeah, right.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:14:17 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:14:23 PM] <DesertRose> BRB, food again.

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:15:12 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12my niece is 3 in 4 days
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:15:25 PM] <DesertRose> Happy birthday a little early, derynifanatic64.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:15:27 PM] <the_Bee> My mom would have been 100 on Jan. 16.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:15:30 PM] <DesertRose> Wow.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:15:47 PM] <KK> How close did she actually make it?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:15:48 PM] <Evie> My high school best friend's birthday is on January 16.

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:17:12 PM] <Evie> Alkari's birthday was New Year's Day, which makes her 2013. No, wait, something about that's not right.... *head scratch*

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:18:24 PM] <the_Bee> I saw Annie's name and I assumed she was arriving *blush*
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:18:38 PM] <Evie> this is her usual fall asleep time
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:18:43 PM] <Alkari> I think it's about 1am for her.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:18:43 PM] <DesertRose> Eh, everybody makes mistakes like that sometimes, Bee.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:18:49 PM] <DesertRose> It's about midnight.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:18:49 PM] <KK> So, how is 2013 for everyone so far?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:18:54 PM] <the_Bee> yes. past midnight UK time
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:18:56 PM] <DesertRose> Busy. :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:18:59 PM] <Evie> I have a headcold

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:19:05 PM] <the_Bee> so far so good.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:19:14 PM] <DesertRose> How is the new year treating you, KK?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:19:15 PM] <Evie> but at least I had a wonderful vacation before that
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:19:26 PM] <DesertRose> Did the car situation get unhosed, Evie?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:19:28 PM] <KK> I'm fighting off a cold. Tried Zicam spray, and it seems to have whapped the cold in its tracks.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:19:29 PM] <Alkari> Recovering from thyroid op - and waiting fr hot weather tomorrow. 40C +
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:19:39 PM] <LeDuc> 2013 begins with one debt, the mortgage, that's enough
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:19:49 PM] <Jerusha> That's very hot, Alkari
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:19:49 PM] <Evie> DH is in TN to return our friends' car and fix ours, DR, but yes, he managed to fix it and should be back tonight
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:19:51 PM] <DesertRose> Oh fun. Well, at least you managed to stop the cold from progressing.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:20:00 PM] <DesertRose> Ah, okay, Evie.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:20:01 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12bad car
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:20:08 PM] <jemler> Alkari, how did you get Dick Clark to throw birthday parties for you?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:20:11 PM] * the_Bee sends Alkari fast-recovery woodgies.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:20:11 PM] <Evie> I love Zicam
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:20:12 PM] <KK> I was wondering about the TN adventure.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:20:36 PM] <Alkari> Oh, influence jemler - after all, I get fireworks every year :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:20:42 PM] <Evie> It turned out that in addition to the loose electrical connection, the alternator was also bad, so he had fixed one thing but not the other
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:20:53 PM] <DesertRose> Oh fun,
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:20:57 PM] <jemler> not to mention a big ball to drop!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:21:02 PM] <DesertRose> That comma was supposed to be a period. :S
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:21:10 PM] <Alkari> My brother's alternator gave up the other day - it died right outside a pizza shop, luckily
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:21:20 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12pizza!!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:21:23 PM] <Jerusha> So no one starved?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:21:27 PM] <DesertRose> Yay pizza! :)
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:21:39 PM] <Alkari> No. He had to get new battery and alternator
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:21:40 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12i had pizza for lunch today
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:21:57 PM] <Evie> I just finished a few slices of pizza
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:22:01 PM] <the_Bee> d Indian for early dinner
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:22:02 PM] <DesertRose> No Jass?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:22:03 PM] <Alkari> And as they had been busy at hospital that day, he got to eat pizza while waiting for road service
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:22:07 PM] <Jerusha> I had pizza yesterday
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:22:23 PM] <Evie> No Jass, DR. It wasn't pepperoni.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:22:34 PM] <Evie> That's convenient, Alkari. :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:22:47 PM] <LeDuc> KK, when's the 3rd Childe Morgan due out?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:22:53 PM] <Alkari> Car had to get towed home, but they got the alternator for him next day
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:22:55 PM] <DesertRose> Mmm. Pizza. Too bad I'm already in the middle of making taco salad. :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:23:09 PM] <Jerusha> Taco salad is also very good
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:23:14 PM] <DesertRose> Yes. Yes it is. :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:23:15 PM] * bynw peaks in from doing some laundry
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:23:17 PM] <KK> Later this year, after I finish it.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:23:18 PM] <DesertRose> Hi bynw.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:23:29 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Bynw
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:23:29 PM] <jemler> hi bynw
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:23:40 PM] <Evie> KK, DD just walked in and said to tell you hi. Actually, she says "Tell her 'my beloved daughter said to tell you Hello.'" :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:23:40 PM] <the_Bee> Hi bynw
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:23:50 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Evie.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:23:53 PM] <KK> Hi back.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:23:57 PM] <jemler> hi Rachel.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:24:09 PM] <LeDuc> My husband 'eats' Game of Thrones, and I'm the Deryni man
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:24:16 PM] <KK> So, the littles are also on the way home.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:24:18 PM] <Alkari> LOL - I eat both
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:24:22 PM] <DesertRose> Are they mutually exclusive? :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:24:37 PM] <Alkari> Some nice eye candy on GoT
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:24:41 PM] <DesertRose> Indeed.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:24:47 PM] <Jerusha> Truly
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:24:47 PM] <Evie> My Deryni littles are already here, but my modern littles are en route.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:24:58 PM] <LeDuc> We mad a deal, he has to read 3 Deryni books to his one 'Thrones' book
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:25:00 PM] <KK> Ah.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:25:10 PM] <Jerusha> Sounds fair
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:25:30 PM] <DesertRose> Well, the GoT books are pretty long.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:25:35 PM] <Evie> Luke has arrived to purr at everyone and sit on my arms
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:25:39 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Luke.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:25:45 PM] <the_Bee> hi Luke
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:25:49 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12good luke
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:25:49 PM] <Alkari> And at least one of them would probably have benefited from a bit of editing
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:26:02 PM] <LeDuc> Yes Rose, they sure are
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:26:29 PM] <DesertRose> Has the novel editing industry fallen on hard times? I read a book not long ago that REALLY needed a good editor.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:26:32 PM] <jemler> use the force, luke.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:26:32 PM] <KK> I have the 1st GoT book, but haven't started it yet.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:26:44 PM] <jemler> i've read all 5 so far.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:26:59 PM] <Alkari> The first and third books are probably the best written, IMHO
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:27:11 PM] <Evie> I don't think editors edit as stringently as they used to, DR. And it's even worse in news media, which often makes me wonder if they have any copy editors left at all.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:27:21 PM] <DesertRose> I don't think so either.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:27:31 PM] <LeDuc> We have two 'maps' in our library, his GoT map and my 11Kgdms composite map
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:27:33 PM] <KK> THere4's a lot of stuff that's being self-published nowadays, or nearly self-published. And they don't have decent editors. And since the schools no longer teach proper grammar and punctuation and the like, the times are dire.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:27:35 PM] <Alkari> Well, George martin tends to ignore the editors' red pens.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:27:49 PM] <DesertRose> One of my favorite SF novels needed a good editor; the story is good enough to make me overlook the editing problems, but it needed a good editor.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:27:52 PM] <Audrey> Somebody on NPR said 'ancestors' instead of 'descendents' the other day
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:27:58 PM] <DesertRose> Oops, Audrey.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:28:11 PM] <KK> Yeah, there's a lot of that going around.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:28:13 PM] <the_Bee> My hero would be someone who knows when NOT to put an apostrophe before an "S".
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:28:15 PM] <jemler> which story, dr
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:28:21 PM] <Alkari> LOL @ Bee
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:28:24 PM] <LeDuc> Audrey, and have lots of one and some of the other now
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:28:28 PM] <DesertRose> The Parable of the Sower, by Octavia Butler.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:28:38 PM] Quit Sarah_working has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:28:40 PM] <Evie> Although no recent news story can compete with the wedding announcement my dad and I had a good laugh over years ago, in which the bride and groom were reported to have "consummated their wedding at the Oak Grove Baptist Church," and said that all friends and family were invited to attend.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:28:44 PM] <jemler> don't know that one.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:28:59 PM] <Jerusha> Oh my!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:28:59 PM] <Alkari> And knows the difference between less and fewer
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:29:05 PM] <LeDuc> 'consummated' oops!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:29:11 PM] <Alkari> LOL@ Evie
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:29:15 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12:D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:29:19 PM] <DesertRose> It has a sequel that I haven't gotten my mitts on yet, called The Parable of the Talents. It's really good if you like near-future dystopian SF.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:29:25 PM] <jemler> i was gonna say something, but i'll be nice!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:29:42 PM] <KK> I was never able to get into her work.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:29:43 PM] <Jerusha> Jerusha puts her fish back in the bucket
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:29:44 PM] <DesertRose> Oops, Evie, LOL.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:30:08 PM] <Evie> jemler, showing restraint? *marks date on calendar*
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:30:09 PM] <DesertRose> I think there was supposed to be a third book, but she passed away.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:30:24 PM] <jemler> lol
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:30:26 PM] <Evie> that would put a kink into plans for a third book, yes.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:30:29 PM] <Alkari> It's only early in th eyear Evie - I wouldn't see this as his NY resolution :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:30:32 PM] <DesertRose> Indeed.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:30:47 PM] <Jerusha> One can hope..
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:31:01 PM] <Evie> Luke is purring so loudly I can barely think
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:31:12 PM] <jemler> :)
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:31:14 PM] <DesertRose> I'm also working on reading Barbara Hambly's Benjamin January series. REALLY good stuff. Murder mysteries set in 1830s New Orleans.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:31:18 PM] <Alkari> Well, I'd still keep your trout and mackerel handy
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:31:33 PM] <DesertRose> Merlin does that, Evie, purrs so loudly he can drown out thought. :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:31:35 PM] <Jerusha> That sounds interesting, DR.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:31:39 PM] <KK> Just finished a very interesting bok called Bread of Heaven, by Bill Myers. Has to do with extracting Christ's DNA fron a thorn that's been encapsulated in wax, and then they use that DNA to try to change a subject's proclivities from violence to compassion and empathy. A very good read.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:31:41 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, they're fascinating.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:31:42 PM] <Evie> I've heard of those but haven't read them yet. I've liked some of Hambly's other books though
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:31:51 PM] <LeDuc> ask KK for the leftover grilled salmon, if there is any left
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:31:57 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, do, if you get a chance, Evie.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:32:20 PM] <DesertRose> They're as cool for the historical/cultural stuff as they are for the mystery.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:32:29 PM] <Evie> I haven't read that book, KK, but I think I've read something else by that author. Trying to remember what.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:33:02 PM] <KK> Nope, I ate up every bite! It was on a bed of pureed cauliflower with sliced beets and grapefruit segments. Yum!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:33:09 PM] <jemler> what was Hambly's first name?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:33:14 PM] <DesertRose> Barbara.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:33:22 PM] <DesertRose> She has written a number of fantasy novels, too.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:33:25 PM] <KK> I've just ordered Face of God, which is the next in the series.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:33:28 PM] <jemler> Children of the Night
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:33:45 PM] <DesertRose> I think so, yes, jemler. I have her Sun Wolf and Starhawk trilogy.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:34:04 PM] <Alkari> extracting DNA from amber - shades of Jurassic Park
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:34:08 PM] <LeDuc> <<<has some hot, thick 15 bean and ham soup left, help yourself
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:34:09 PM] <jemler> Cotn: someone is killing vampires in london.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:34:10 PM] <KK> I liked Children of the Night. She writes good vampires.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:34:37 PM] <DesertRose> She writes well in general. :)
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:34:48 PM] <DesertRose> Not, of course, to say that you don't. :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:35:07 PM] <Jerusha> How is the writing coming, KK?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:35:08 PM] <DesertRose> We wouldn't all be here otherwise. :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:35:39 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12:D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:36:07 PM] <Evie> Oh, you missed KK saying that she left Alaric doing handstands on the railing of Brion's flagship! Oh, wait, no, she didn't say that. Never mind. :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:36:12 PM] <LeDuc> KK, I re-read Lammas Night, that is one excellent book
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:36:23 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, I love Lammas Night, LeDuc.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:36:29 PM] <KK> Good. Would've been more, but my mom fell on THursday AM--she;s fine, but bruised and sore. Had to take her to the doctor, and go over yesterday and make her breakfast for her. But she's over the hump now.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:36:35 PM] <DesertRose> Owie.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:36:42 PM] <Evie> Ouch!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:36:43 PM] <Jerusha> Goodness Evie, I almost believed you! :D
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:36:46 PM] <Evie> glad she's on the mend
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:36:54 PM] <Alkari> Glad she wasn't hurt badly
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:36:56 PM] <KK> Lammas is one of my favorites, too.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:37:03 PM] <the_Bee> good wishes to KK's mom
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:37:11 PM] <Jerusha> Glad your Mom is OK, KK
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:37:16 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, indeed, wishes for a speedy recovery to the Mom-lady.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:37:38 PM] <Alkari> Falls for older people can always be :(
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:38:13 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12glad mom's ok
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:38:19 PM] <Evie> KK, if you are queen of this forum, does that make your mother the Queen Mum?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:38:26 PM] <Jerusha> My aunt just broke her wrist when she slipped getting out of her car. She's 92
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:38:49 PM] <KK> LOL, I guess so. I'
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:38:58 PM] <Evie> Ow. Though if she's 92 and still doing well enough to drive, then that's good at least
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:38:58 PM] <KK> I'll have to tell her.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:39:31 PM] <KK> Mine is 87, and doesn't drive anymore, but she'd doing quite well.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:39:36 PM] <Alkari> Friend of mine just bought her Mum a new car - Mum is 91
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:40:02 PM] <Jerusha> My Dad is 94 and still driving. I have a stubborn family. :)

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:40:27 PM] <LeDuc> 87 is young in my family, all the grandparents lived 100+ yrs, I plan to live longer
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:40:29 PM] <KK> Since yesterday?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:40:40 PM] <KK> Her name is Margaret.

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:41:59 PM] <DesertRose> Nobody in my family is that short as an adult. My maternal grandmother was the short one at 5'2".
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:42:05 PM] <LeDuc> My Mother is 'Little Foot', 5 ft tall, size 5 shoe, and still going like dynamite
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:42:18 PM] <Jerusha> Dynamite is good

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:42:34 PM] <Jerusha> Sorry, Bynw
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:42:35 PM] <Rita_class> just got done with my class
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:42:42 PM] Nick Rita_class is now known as Rita.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:42:50 PM] <DesertRose> I'm the baby sister in my family, and my brothers are all three taller than I am.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:43:00 PM] <DesertRose> I think I'm taller than their other sister, though.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:43:02 PM] <Rita> and btw, C4 is even more compact than dynamite
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:43:15 PM] <LeDuc> She rode a pedal scooter with the great-grand children, they loved it
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:43:20 PM] <KK> Evie, nice find! You could ensmallen one of the pics of photo then paint it in and jewel it.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:43:23 PM] Nick Rita is now known as Rita_C4.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:43:29 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Rita_C4.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:43:34 PM] <Rita_C4> heehee!

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:44:05 PM] <DesertRose> Rented fingers, probably.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:44:10 PM] <Evie> I considered doing that, KK. But I think if I can add actual raised bits,it will look better. I have some ideas for doing that.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:44:18 PM] <the_Bee> a Deryni dryer?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:44:27 PM] <DesertRose> Ensmallen? Is that a real word? :)
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:44:29 PM] <Rita_C4> that's what I was thinking Bee
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:44:32 PM] <Jerusha> That's what I was wondering, Bee
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:44:37 PM] <Evie> It is now. ;-)
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:44:40 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:44:53 PM] <DesertRose> Well, we know what she meant by it, so I guess it's real enough. :P
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:44:56 PM] <Evie> It's Gwyneddan for "shrink"

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:46:07 PM] <Evie> I have a friend who is making me teeny cabochon jewels from colored resin, so once I've got those, I can work on the mini medieval Bible cover
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:46:08 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12no
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:46:16 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, awesome, Evie.

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:47:34 PM] <Jerusha> I have some small Swarovske glue on "emeralds" Evie; if you can use them, just let me know
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:47:35 PM] <Evie> I'm thinking of replicating it by painting the plastic brown (to simulate the leather), then either finding a crucifix charm in gold or else making the raised gold bits from embossed gold colored foil. Drybrushing gold paint over the brown should give the gilded look, and then the jewels and charm or foil could be added over that
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:47:39 PM] <LeDuc> re HI Bee
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:47:40 PM] <KK> I'm back.

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:48:02 PM] <jemler> how was the dryeri?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:48:05 PM] <LeDuc> that was a nice 'dumping'
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:48:13 PM] <KK> You could gold-leaf the whole thing, then add jewels.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:48:27 PM] <Evie> Thanks, Jerusha, but since I'm looking for rounded rather than faceted stones, I don't think the crystals would work. Plus they'd have to be extremely small...like 3 to 4 mm
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:48:27 PM] <KK> Stuff is dry. :-)
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:48:41 PM] <DesertRose> Yay! I hate doing laundry.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:48:43 PM] <Evie> but my friend from the doll forum has made some prototype jewels already
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:48:52 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12mibbit probably having a bad new year
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:48:53 PM] <Jerusha> They are small, but faceted.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:49:01 PM] <the_Bee> Senior Services does my laundry.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:49:28 PM] <Evie> yes, given how small this is, I could use real gold leaf without it costing a mint
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:49:38 PM] <KK> Dry-brushing gold is probably the bst bet.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:49:48 PM] <Evie> I already have gold acrylic paint
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:49:54 PM] <jemler> you send your Victoria's Secret stuff OUT to be cleaned!? :)
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:50:05 PM] <Jerusha> Jemler!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:50:10 PM] * Evie smacks jemler with a mackerel so often, she's created a macro for it. *thwack!*
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:50:11 PM] <LeDuc> I was 'given' the gift of how to make 'fabric paper' with the lint from the dryer (and added/boiled 'clean' shredded paper)
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:50:18 PM] <the_Bee> Of course, Jemler. Don't you?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:50:19 PM] <DesertRose> jemler: don't make us beat you.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:50:24 PM] <KK> Synthetic gold foil still looks great. Don't know how jewels and such would stick to it, though; might pull off the foil with the least little bump.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:50:25 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12BAD JEMLER!!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:50:47 PM] <KK> Want some dryer lint? I can send you buckets!!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:51:06 PM] <DesertRose> Talk about reduce, reuse, recycle!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:51:34 PM] <LeDuc> hahahaha, I save mine all year, mostly sorted by color, and have some very pretty paper now
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:51:38 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:51:56 PM] <Evie> Dryer lint reminds me...the latest batch of linen I got from the online store was disappointing--the gray was too coarse, and when I washed it, lint went EVERYWHERE
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:52:08 PM] <Evie> it's still got to be delinted even after going through the drier
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:52:16 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12almost time for our favorite show
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:52:19 PM] <the_Bee> Ick!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:52:19 PM] <KK> Try washing it a second time; that may eliminate the excess.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:52:34 PM] <the_Bee> Ick to lint, not OUAT
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:52:51 PM] <DesertRose> One of their grays is that way. I have a kirtle-type dress made out of that gray linen.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:52:53 PM] <KK> Yes, DR, and I've gotta run. I need to put some things in the oven before it starts.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:52:57 PM] <jemler> I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Once Upon a Time is starting.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:53:09 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, see you later, KK. Thanks for stopping by!
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:53:10 PM] <Evie> If it will soften it more too, I may try that. I bought another yard to make more Servants of Saint Camber robes for two of my littles, but it's not the same fine weave, lightweight linen I ordered before. Same color but different weave.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:53:16 PM] <the_Bee> nighters, KK. Have a good week and a good year.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:53:27 PM] <KK> Yes, in a couple of minutes. Nighters, all.

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:53:42 PM] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:53:42 PM] <DesertRose> Will we see you next week, KK?
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:53:46 PM] <KK> Yes.

[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:53:56 PM] <Evie> You have to put things in the oven before the oven starts? ;-)
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:53:57 PM] <LeDuc> I sed mine to make some 'THICK' paper, and used it for a 'paper screen' a la Japonaise
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:54:08 PM] <jemler> then i can get rid of the fisky smell
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:54:09 PM] <DesertRose> Laters, KK.
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:54:10 PM] <Evie> I need to experiment with paper making sometime
[Sunday, January 06, 2013] [07:54:14 PM] Quit KK has left this server (Quit: ).
"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.)
