[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:10:52 PM] <Evie> Hi, KK!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:10:56 PM] <The_Bee> Hi KK!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:10:59 PM] <KK> Hi, gang.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:10:59 PM] <Shiral> Hello, KK
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:11:04 PM] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:11:10 PM] <The_Bee> How was the retreat?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:11:12 PM] <Annie> hi KK
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:11:21 PM] <KK> It was excellent.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:11:44 PM] <The_Bee> a good refreshment for the soul?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:12:02 PM] <KK> Yes, and good reconnects with those there.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:12:17 PM] <Shiral> Well then, sounds like a good time was had by all
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:12:38 PM] <KK> What's everybody been up to? Evie, it looks like you've been busy with the Littles.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:12:46 PM] <TerryOBrien> Good evening Katherine
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:12:54 PM] <Shiral> Working on my latest mini house

[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:13:12 PM] <jemler> hi jerusha
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:13:13 PM] <The_Bee> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:13:17 PM] <KK> And how is DH's new job, Evie?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:13:21 PM] <Shiral> And trying to stay cool
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:13:24 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Everyone!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:13:27 PM] <Shiral> Hello Jerusha
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:13:29 PM] <KK> What kind of house this time, Shiral?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:13:33 PM] <jemler> my mother got a pup.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:13:38 PM] <Evie> Somewhat busy. I probably won't get much done this week because we're in the middle of an office move, and I'm exhausted by the time I get home. But we were without water at my house last week, so i spent some of my evenings at my MIL's house doing craft stuff.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:13:43 PM] <Shiral> It's still the little Charleston townhouse, KK
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:13:47 PM] <Evie> DH is loving his new job!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:14:05 PM] <Jerusha> Do you have water now, Evie?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:14:13 PM] <Shiral> I've been adding more details to this one. It's time consuming, but I'm very pleased with the restul
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:14:13 PM] <Evie> Mini-Camber is with me at chat, KK. https://flic.kr/p/ocXf4E
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:14:16 PM] <Shiral> Result, that is
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:14:45 PM] <Evie> We have water, yes. I was out a while ago trying to cover the water pipe with dirt.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:14:56 PM] <Evie> filling in the trench in the yard
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:15:00 PM] <Jerusha> What does he think of the new technology?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:15:15 PM] <Evie> He looks politely baffled. :D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:15:20 PM] <Jerusha> Camber, that is
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:15:32 PM] <Shiral> Wondering how he can replicate the result with Ward Cube Configurations. =o)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:15:34 PM] <Jerusha> A different kind of magic
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:15:38 PM] <KK> But he's a good Camber, especially in his grey robes.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:15:57 PM] <Jerusha> And with a head on his shoulders :)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:16:07 PM] <KK> That, too.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:16:34 PM] <Shiral> Life is so confusing without your head
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:16:44 PM] <KK> All those shots of disembodied heads on the website were kind of worrying. What luck with a body for Joram?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:16:45 PM] <Evie> I was originally going to lend him this set, but I think he'll go ahead and keep these robes, and I'll make new robes with the scraps of fabric I have left that match Helena's robes. This gray fabric was left over from my own Servant of Saint Camber robes.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:16:50 PM] <Jerusha> You don't know which way to turn
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:16:51 PM] <Evie> The ones I wear to DragonCon
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:17:22 PM] <Evie> I'm shopping around for a Joram body. Whatever I end up with will probably need some modification to make it work.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:17:45 PM] <The_Bee> What's the problem?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:17:51 PM] <Shiral> Evie, you ought to make yourself a business card with 'Body snatcher
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:17:56 PM] <Shiral> on it, somewhere
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:17:57 PM] <Evie> Aerlys mentioned she might have some GI Joes in her basement that are around the same decade and might work for body donors if they are made the same as the Kens that came out around that time.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:18:23 PM] <Evie> Trying to fit a head onto a body whose neck joint wasn't designed for it, Bee.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:18:24 PM] <Shiral> That would befit a Michaeline knight
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:18:26 PM] <Jerusha> body donors, body snatchers, sigh
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:18:59 PM] <TerryOBrien> Decapitationists
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:19:06 PM] <Evie> Also checking out online stores such as http://www.gijoeelite.com/f_display.asp?strDisplayName=OMBodiesHeadsHands
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:19:38 PM] <KK> I'm keeping an eye out for donors, too. Hope to get those Barbies in the mail to you this week.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:20:18 PM] <Evie> Oh, I have a new address, so I need to give you that if you are going to ship something!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:20:24 PM] <Evie> We're moving offices this week.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:20:47 PM] <Jerusha> That's always fun
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:20:48 PM] <KK> Ah, that would be good info to have!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:21:19 PM] <Shiral> I can see the new tenants of the former office wondering WHY they're getting barbie dolls in the mail. =o)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:21:38 PM] <Jerusha> And dismembered heads
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:21:40 PM] <Annie> LOL Shiral
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:22:02 PM] <Annie> as long as they are only dismembered Barbie and Ken heads, Jerusha
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:22:03 PM] <Shiral> That would raise even MORE questions. "Is this some new form of mail threat?"
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:22:44 PM] <Jerusha> Just something coming to head office
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:22:52 PM] <Shiral> LOL
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:22:59 PM] <Evie> Fortunately I don't think there are new tenants moving in too soon
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:23:01 PM] <Annie> groan
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:23:15 PM] * Evie swats Jerusha with a perch
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:23:17 PM] <Annie> that was worthy of jemler
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:23:25 PM] <Jerusha> I do what I can
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:23:37 PM] <TerryOBrien> Just tell them you were headhunters
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:23:45 PM] <Jerusha> Is there a parrot on that perch?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:24:32 PM] <The_Bee> a macaw
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:24:38 PM] <jemler> no it wasn't.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:24:48 PM] <Jerusha> Ah, shucks
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:25:28 PM] <jemler> whick one will be the new head secretary?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:25:52 PM] <jemler> looks like it was heads.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:25:58 PM] <Jerusha> Or headmaster?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:26:08 PM] <Shiral> Or headmistress?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:26:11 PM] <jemler> it's from headquarters.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:26:58 PM] <jemler> see? punny, very punny.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:27:08 PM] <The_Bee> Is anyonetaking footnotes?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:27:09 PM] <Evie> Don't make me hurt y'all. :D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:27:11 PM] * Shiral smacks Jemler
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:27:15 PM] <jemler> lol
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:27:42 PM] <jemler> read the handwriting, oops.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:28:53 PM] * Shiral drops pin
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:28:56 PM] * jemler hums the song "Head Games" by Foreignor.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:28:57 PM] <Shiral> CLANG!!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:30:03 PM] <jemler> something
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:30:12 PM] <Shiral> Everyone must be napping all at once
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:30:25 PM] <TerryOBrien> We're not getting in the middle of a pun battle
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:30:28 PM] <The_Bee> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:30:37 PM] <Jerusha> Anything new on TKD, KK?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:30:38 PM] <jemler> i won
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:30:46 PM] <TerryOBrien> At least, I'm not because my head's not in it
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:31:32 PM] <jemler> what about annie's book?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:31:53 PM] <Jerusha> Annie's third book
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:31:55 PM] <Evie> OK, found a picture of a nude GI Joe. If the ones Aerlys has in her basement are from the same time period as this one, I might be able to adapt it to use Joram's head: http://www.gijoeelite.com/f_itemPart.asp?strPart=GICCL-00442
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:32:29 PM] <Evie> Annie, you've sent the final bits of book three to Karen already, haven't you?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:32:53 PM] <Annie> yup, they went a few days ago
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:33:01 PM] <KK> Sorry, I was looking at the other GI Joe site, and all the bodies.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:33:06 PM] <Jerusha> Excellent, Annie!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:33:24 PM] <Evie> There's also a site called Monkey Depot that I'm checking out, KK.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:33:34 PM] <Evie> Sometimes their prices are better than eBay.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:33:45 PM] <KK> Monkey Depot?!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:33:48 PM] <jemler> don't tell Rachel!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:33:51 PM] <The_Bee> Joram with an ape body??!!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:34:05 PM] <Evie> http://www.monkeydepot.com/1_6_Nude_Figs_Stands_s/23.htm
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:34:29 PM] <Jerusha> Deryni planet of the apes?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:34:32 PM] <Shiral> We're peeping at naked G.I. Joes.... Freud would have SUCH a field day with this...
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:34:38 PM] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:34:43 PM] <Jerusha> And additional bodies....
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:35:09 PM] <Shiral> Playing Head Games...
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:35:17 PM] <TerryOBrien> Dead squirrels?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:36:26 PM] <Evie> The main problem with shopping online is that color can be deceptive. For instance, this guy looks light enough to go with a Ken head: http://www.monkeydepot.com/Figure_Soldier_Story_82nd_Airborne_p/ssl1783.htm But I know from previous experience that Soldier Story bodies tend to run darker than they look on screen.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:36:28 PM] <The_Bee> ? Terry
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:37:45 PM] <TerryOBrien> http://www.monkeydepot.com/Figure_Double_Play_Dead_Squirrel_p/dpl0011.htm
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:38:12 PM] <The_Bee> ah.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:38:16 PM] <jemler> so the russians shot down rocky.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:38:31 PM] <jemler> curse you boris and natasha!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:38:33 PM] <Jerusha> Evie, the body might be OK, but loose that head!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:39:29 PM] <Evie> LOL! I'm body shopping, not head shopping. Of course he'd have to lose the head if Joram is going to go on the body! I can't have a two-headed Joram running around here! :D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:39:48 PM] <Jerusha> Not the right kind of tonsure
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:39:56 PM] <Evie> :D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:40:15 PM] <Evie> though it would be a bonus to get a figure with a head suitable for using later
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:40:28 PM] <Shiral> I've just thought of the perfect business name for you, Evie: "Evie's Body Shop."
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:40:28 PM] <KK> Bonus heads are always good.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:40:48 PM] <Evie> It could be worse. It could be this guy: http://www.monkeydepot.com/Head_DamToys_Spade_3_p/dml0312.htm
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:40:51 PM] <Shiral> Two heads are better than one, it's true, KK
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:41:23 PM] <KK> So, what's the story on the dead squirel? Supper?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:41:24 PM] <The_Bee> preferable on different bodies
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:41:37 PM] <Shiral> That might work if you want to make Rhun the Ruthless, Evie. Or Murdoch.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:41:43 PM] <Evie> LOL! No idea why there's a dead squirrel, but dinner would be my guess.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:41:50 PM] <Jerusha> That head looks like he's spending too much time in the garderobe
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:42:07 PM] <KK> The squirrel or the guy?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:42:21 PM] <Evie> I actually kind of like the head with the mohawk, but I'd put a full hair wig on him. Not much use for a mohawk in my collection. But his face is nice.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:43:37 PM] <Evie> One thing I've had to learn is not just to look at figures as they are, but as they could be with a bit of work.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:44:22 PM] <Shiral> I guess it would be hard to make a case for a mohawk being a kind of reverse tonsure...
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:44:51 PM] <Jerusha> Try to explain it to Archbishop Cardiel
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:45:43 PM] <Evie> OK, here's a neck that might work without having to carve too much off Joram's neck to get him to fit on the neck joint this one has: http://www.monkeydepot.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=D4041
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:45:56 PM] <KK> I've never quite understood the allure of the mohawk. But I suppose it might make padding under at least aprt of a helmet.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:46:17 PM] <Evie> It would be cool in summer. On the sides, anyway.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:47:03 PM] <Evie> It would be quick work to either pluck out the mohawk or shave it level to the rest of the scalp and then slap a wig on him.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:47:18 PM] <The_Bee> Evie, are necks separate from heads?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:47:18 PM] <Evie> Well, OK, MAKE a wig on him.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:47:21 PM] <TerryOBrien> Make it into a Borderer braid
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:47:24 PM] <KK> I rather like all the little hands and feet, especially the hands, with fingers poised to rest near triggers.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:48:08 PM] <KK> I'd think that a wig to be done as a border braid would work better than a wig with loose hair.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:48:39 PM] <Evie> On some figures, yes they are, Bee. That's one of the problems, making sure to find a figure with a little bit of a neck, but not too much of one. There's a way to fit an old style Ken head onto a body that has a long neck molded on, but it requires lots of plastic carving and using silicone putty to re-create a neck joint to fit properly.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:48:55 PM] <Evie> and I don't have that much skill at it, so I'd rather not go that route unless it's the only option.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:49:08 PM] <The_Bee> ah, thanks for the info.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:49:33 PM] <The_Bee> The Dragon Brad Mason guy looks like he's about to insert a contact lens.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:49:43 PM] <Evie> the little "trigger finger" hand position also works well for a figure pointing at something, holding a beer mug, etc.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:49:57 PM] <Evie> LOL! he does, doesn't he?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:50:59 PM] <KK> He does, indeed. I remember that pose.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:51:47 PM] <Evie> Here's an example of a body type I'm avoiding, Bee. See that attached neck? That's the sort of body/neck style I'd use for a head like Duncan has, but it won't work for a head like Joram has, or for one like Camber, who has a long neck attached to his head.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:51:53 PM] <Evie> http://www.monkeydepot.com/Figure_World_Box_Muscle_Nude_No_Head_p/wbl0013.htm
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:51:58 PM] <Evie> Sorry...helps to put the link in. :D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:52:28 PM] <Annie> Need to sleep, guys. See you next week.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:52:38 PM] <Evie> Good night, Annie!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:52:42 PM] <Annie> night :)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:52:45 PM] <Jerusha> Night, Annie!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:52:45 PM] <Shiral> Night, Annnie
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:52:48 PM] Quit Annie has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:52:51 PM] <The_Bee> bye Annie. Congrats on your book
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:52:53 PM] <jemler> nite annie
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:53:03 PM] <jemler> evie, all brawn, no brain?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:53:34 PM] <Shiral> They've got a naked guy with only boots on... Not quite combat ready. =o)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:53:40 PM] <Evie> LOL! That figure, yes, jemler. I'm not a particular fan of that one. Those arms are so musclebound, he can't bring a cup to his face or touch his own head.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:53:53 PM] <The_Bee> KK, is your cataract surgery scheduled? or done?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:54:18 PM] <Jerusha> If he had a head
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:54:26 PM] <DesertRose> Hey y'all. Sorry, I went off and took a nap. :)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:55:14 PM] <Evie> OK, this guy might work. I have extra hands. http://www.monkeydepot.com/Figure_Dragon_Neo_3_Adam_No_Head_No_Hands_p/d4103.htm
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:55:28 PM] <KK> Scheduled. First one is Thursday, September 4, right after Dragoncon.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:55:37 PM] <Evie> Wow, that is RIGHT after, isn't it?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:55:56 PM] <Jerusha> The sooner it is done, the better, I should think
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:56:04 PM] <Evie> I've already told the new boss I'll be taking the end of that con week off. :-)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:56:14 PM] <KK> Yep. But it will keep me too busy to think about it much, until suddenly it's time.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:56:17 PM] <The_Bee> I'm sure you'll se a tremendous improvement. I did.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:56:19 PM] <Jerusha> You have the new boss, Evie?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:56:31 PM] <Evie> that will be enough after my office move that things should have settled a bit, but not so far into the term that we'll be crazy busy
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:56:43 PM] <Evie> I have a new boss, yes
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:56:53 PM] <Jerusha> A good one, I hope?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:56:55 PM] <The_Bee> hence the new office?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:56:59 PM] <Evie> as of the beginning of this month. And yes, she's great.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:57:06 PM] <Jerusha> Good
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:57:13 PM] <Shiral> That's always good
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:57:34 PM] <KK> Makes all the difference. And how are you settling into having DH away in the middle of the week?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:57:37 PM] <Evie> no, the office move is because we're merging with another department, and both of our areas are moving into a new facility that has been specially designed for us
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:57:50 PM] <The_Bee> cool!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:57:55 PM] <Jerusha> wow
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:58:22 PM] <Evie> it's been fine. He's here for 3 days every week, but so far his schedule has changed every week so it's not always the same 3 days. But it's been flexible enough to let him be here on days when he really needs to be.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:58:26 PM] <KK> Does she understand about the Littles, or has she not yet been introduced?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:58:50 PM] <Evie> and his former job kept him so overworked, it was like he was away for long days at a time even when he wasn't
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:58:58 PM] <Jerusha> The littles are not the problem, it's the stray heads....
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:59:16 PM] <TerryOBrien> Wasn't Stray Heads the name of a 60's band?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:59:18 PM] <Evie> She's a craftsy sort of person herself. She hasn't met the littles yet, but I doubt she'll be too surprised
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:59:35 PM] <Shiral> Sounds like it should be a band name now, Terry
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:59:37 PM] <Evie> I think I've mentioned doing "miniatures" in passing
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [07:59:41 PM] <KK> I would hope she'll be charmed.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:00:00 PM] <Evie> we were cleaning out a supply closet and both of us were claiming things for crafts use. :D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:00:14 PM] <Jerusha> That sounds promising
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:00:20 PM] <Shiral> Sounds like you understand one another. =oa0
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:00:25 PM] <Shiral> =o), I mean
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:00:33 PM] <Evie> and I found a roll of corrugated bulletin board border and mentioned it could be made to look like linenfold wood carvings if only it were wider.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:00:46 PM] <Evie> and she didn't blink an eye
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:00:56 PM] <Jerusha> Bless her
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:01:47 PM] <Evie> She used to make polymer clay jewelry when she worked with us years ago, so I might hit her up for polymer clay food if she ever gets back into the hobby
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:01:58 PM] <Shiral> I know what you mean. I don't look at corrugated cardboard in the same way since roofing my blue dragon pagoda =o)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:02:23 PM] <Evie> LOL! Actually, the corrugated border we tossed out was blue. :D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:02:36 PM] <Jerusha> Kind of puts a new spin on inviting her to lunch :)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:02:57 PM] <Shiral> That wouldn't work so well for mini wood carving. =0)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:03:28 PM] <Evie> I figure once the boxes are all unpacked, I'll see if there's a spare shelf in the office for me to bring in my little jewelry box sofa. That way my littles can have a place to sit when they visit.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:03:28 PM] <Shiral> It would be a crunchy lunch, if you served polymer clay food
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:04:15 PM] <Evie> I've also found the perfect nook in the office between the desk area and the wall where a fairy door would fit. it would need to be an urban fairy door, maybe one that matches my office door.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:04:39 PM] <Jerusha> Not a portal closet?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:04:39 PM] <Shiral> For upwardly mobile urban fairy
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:04:39 PM] <Evie> I'd smuggle it in and wait to see if anyone ever notices.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:05:07 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:05:27 PM] <KK> Cute.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:05:30 PM] <The_Bee> What kind of workplace is it where you can bring in craft projects, Evie?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:05:30 PM] <Evie> Portal closets are usually hidden, aren't they? In which case there's little point in using one for office decor. :D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:05:43 PM] <Shiral> The pinstripe fairy would have a mini office door
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:05:43 PM] <Evie> student counseling center
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:05:57 PM] <Evie> I usually bring my projects with me to work on during lunch
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:06:15 PM] <The_Bee> ah, ok
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:06:24 PM] <Evie> so I'm working on them during personal time, but they are with me throughout the day.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:06:53 PM] <KK> Sounds reasonable to me. When I was working on my Coronation gown, I'd bring in pieces of beading and embroidery to work on at lunchtime.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:06:56 PM] <The_Bee> ever get cafeteria supervision duty?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:06:56 PM] <Evie> though my DH's job consists on working on projects that could be considered "crafts projects."
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:07:14 PM] <Jerusha> Lucky DH!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:07:26 PM] <KK> Talk about a job made in heaven, especially for an SCAer.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:07:53 PM] <Evie> yes. Last Tuesday he broke the news to our shire, since he had to step down as Seneschal, and half the shire asked if there were job vacancies there. :D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:08:02 PM] <DesertRose> That does sounds like a really cool job that your DH has now, Evie.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:08:12 PM] <Evie> "When you're hiring again, put in a word for us!" :D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:08:36 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:08:54 PM] <The_Bee> remind me: what does your DH do?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:08:57 PM] <Evie> They are hoping to have a branch here in this area in a year or so, so they may actually have a shot at it
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:08:57 PM] <jemler> are they handicapped accesible?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:08:59 PM] <KK> Has he found a place to live yet?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:09:07 PM] <Evie> he found a place the weekend before he started work.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:09:14 PM] <Evie> but he's hoping to find something better
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:09:17 PM] <KK> Excellent.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:09:46 PM] <Evie> Bee, he works here: http://mindgearlabs.com/
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:10:13 PM] <Evie> I think the new title is "Lab Manager and Director of Business Development" or something like that.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:10:47 PM] <The_Bee> Looks like a great place.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:11:11 PM] <Evie> He loves it so far
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:11:38 PM] <The_Bee> If they have a branch near you soon, will that mean he won't need to be away so much?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:11:53 PM] <Evie> It would
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:12:04 PM] <Shiral> That would be even cooler
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:12:10 PM] <The_Bee> and you can keep your present house.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:12:16 PM] <Evie> If there's one in Birmingham, he could come back home rather than living in Huntsville for half the week.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:12:19 PM] <KK> Looks like thsi may be a breeding ground for future engineers and architects and the like.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:12:25 PM] <Shiral> The world would be a happier place if we all could love our jobs as much as he loves his
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:12:45 PM] <Jerusha> Looks fantastic, Evie
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:13:04 PM] <Evie> Yes, they are trying to support education in the STEM subjects.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:13:21 PM] <Jerusha> STEM?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:13:32 PM] <Evie> (science, technology, engineering, and maths)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:13:56 PM] <KK> Being as it's Huntscille, that's probably entirely appropriate.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:14:15 PM] <Evie> Extremely. It's home to Redstone Arsenal, NASA, etc.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:14:34 PM] <Evie> We've got some friends there who really are rocket scientists. :)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:14:53 PM] <KK> Well, yeah....
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:15:23 PM] <Shiral> The Littles in Spaaaaaace...
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:15:36 PM] <Evie> "It's not rocket science....Trust me, I know; I DO rocket science!" :-D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:15:44 PM] <DesertRose> The professor who taught me Spanish 102 in college had a studnet once in his adult-learning evening class who just did not get Spanish at all. The guy transpired to be quite literally a rocket scientist.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:15:47 PM] <Jerusha> Just having to provide a helmet cuts down on the spacesuit costs
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:15:49 PM] <DesertRose> *student
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:16:30 PM] <Evie> Hm. Deryni in space suits. Will have to ponder how that would work. :D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:16:52 PM] <The_Bee> Portal to the moon1
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:16:54 PM] <Shiral> Hope body parts wouldn't pop apart in zero gravity
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:16:55 PM] <Evie> "Is that aura vacuum sealed?"
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:16:59 PM] <Jerusha> Studnet was an interesting thought, DR. :)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:17:14 PM] <Shiral> "To Boldly Go where no doll has gone before."
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:17:18 PM] <DesertRose> See, even I make typos sometimes. :)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:17:31 PM] <KK> (I wonder if any dolls <have> gone into space?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:17:47 PM] <Shiral> Nobody's admitted it yet, if they have
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:18:21 PM] <Shiral> I think in the 1960's, Mattel made Ken an astronaut, at one point
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:18:25 PM] <Evie> Dunno, but my college best friend's wedding ring has been up in space. She considered sending a book, but they had to keep the load as small as possible.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:18:39 PM] <Evie> Her brother was a mission specialist
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:18:51 PM] <KK> That is cool!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:18:52 PM] <Jerusha> Cool
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:19:00 PM] <Evie> I know there's also been an Astronaut Barbie, so probably a Ken also
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:19:22 PM] <KK> Probably so.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:19:25 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, it is cool.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:19:48 PM] <Shiral> We're over the moon about the idea.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:19:51 PM] <Evie> The marriage ended, but I think she still kept the ring, because...space. :-)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:19:59 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:20:05 PM] * Evie launches Shiral into orbit
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:20:19 PM] <Shiral> You're going to have to push harder, EVIE
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:20:29 PM] <Shiral> sorry, hit the caps lock key
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:20:38 PM] <Shiral> I'd blame the cat, but he left
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:20:49 PM] <Evie> Camber perked up at the typed screaming of my name and offered me his mini-catapult
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:21:08 PM] <Evie> Why Camber has claimed the catapult, I have no clue. (But I do have a miniature catapult somewhere around here.)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:21:09 PM] <Shiral> What have I done to annoy Camber? =o)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:21:11 PM] <The_Bee> LOL!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:21:26 PM] <Evie> Type-yelled my name too loudly
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:21:41 PM] <Evie> he was sitting next to the speakers. ;_)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:21:53 PM] <Shiral> Sensitive ears, he has
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:22:04 PM] <Shiral> Great, now I sound like Yoda
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:22:07 PM] <Evie> spirit eardrums
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:22:23 PM] <Jerusha> The hood concentrates the sound
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:22:23 PM] <Evie> I wonder how Yoda would diagram sentences?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:22:39 PM] <KK> There is an astronaut Barbie--pink accessories, of course, though there was a blue jumpsuit outfit with helmet next to her.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:22:40 PM] <Evie> or if he hated that part of English class?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:23:05 PM] <Shiral> They were seeing space through rose colored glasses at Mattel, evidently
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:23:58 PM] <Shiral> Would Yoda NEED to diagram sentenses?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:23:59 PM] <Evie> They see everything through rose colored glasses at Mattel. The first thing I do with the pink stuff is either paint it or toss it.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:24:16 PM] <KK> Ah, the aroma of food has wafted its way in here from the kitchen, so I think I'm going to boogie.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:24:29 PM] <KK> See you guys next week.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:24:31 PM] <The_Bee> Who's cooking?
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:24:32 PM] <Evie> I don't mind the occasional pink accent or dress, but Mattel tends to overdose on it
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:24:32 PM] <Shiral> Night KK have a good week
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:24:33 PM] <Jerusha> Enjoy dinner, KK
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:24:38 PM] <TerryOBrien> Good night Katherine
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:24:40 PM] <Shiral> Thanks for popping by
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:24:44 PM] <The_Bee> thanks for coming, KK.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:24:48 PM] <Evie> I need to fix supper for DD so she can take her medicine
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:24:50 PM] <Jerusha> Have a good week!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:25:00 PM] <Shiral> I need something cool to drink, myself
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:25:02 PM] <DesertRose> Night, KK, thanks for coming to see us. Have a good week.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:25:02 PM] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:25:04 PM] <Shiral> Hot here, this weekend
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:25:04 PM] <Evie> she's supposed to take it on a full stomach
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:25:12 PM] <Shiral> Bye, KK
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:25:20 PM] <The_Bee> nighters, KK
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:25:23 PM] <Evie> goodnight, KK!
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:25:51 PM] <jemler> nite kk
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:25:59 PM] <KK> (I shall not describe the Barbie castle that I would have sent Evie, except that the shipping was about 10 times what I had paid for the castle. But pink and purp[le figured prominently.)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:26:11 PM] <KK> Good night, all.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:26:20 PM] <Shiral> Not much protection from the tiny Torenthis
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:26:24 PM] <Evie> plastic spray paint hides a multitude of sins, but alas, not shipping fees.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:26:44 PM] <Jerusha> I can see Kelson standing there saying "This will not do at all!"
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:27:00 PM] <Shiral> "Who painted my palace PINK???"
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:27:00 PM] <Evie> Like with his formerly pink bed, Jerusha? :D
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:27:03 PM] <KK> No, alas. I donated it back to the Goodwill where I'd found it.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:27:12 PM] <Evie> I have pink thrones for him and Araxie now.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:27:12 PM] * The_Bee likes pink and purple clothes.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:27:15 PM] <Jerusha> Yep! ;)
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:27:18 PM] <KK> And on that note....Nighters.
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:27:22 PM] <Evie> I need to get some more plastic primer next payday
[Sunday, July 27, 2014] [08:27:31 PM] Quit KK has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
"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.)
