[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:13:37 PM] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:13:39 PM] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:13:39 PM] <Laurna> Hello KK
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:13:40 PM] <The_Bee> Hi KK!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:13:40 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Everyone!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:13:43 PM] <KK> Hello, all.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:13:47 PM] <Jerusha> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:13:50 PM] Join Evie_ has joined this channel (~IceChat9@OWIRCN-e8ce5021.al.charter.com).
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:13:55 PM] <jemler> hi evie
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:13:58 PM] <Shiral> Hello Jerusha and KK
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:13:59 PM] <DesertRose> Evie seems to be having connection issues.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:14:00 PM] <KK> Evie, you feeling better?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:14:02 PM] <Shiral> And Evie
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:14:15 PM] <KK> Shiral, did you feel the earthquake this AM?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:14:15 PM] <TerryOBrien> Hello Katherine
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:14:25 PM] <The_Bee> Mibbit is persecuting Evie.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:14:28 PM] <Jerusha> Earthquake?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:14:40 PM] <Evie_> test
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:14:45 PM] <Evie_> OK, that came through
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:14:58 PM] <Evie_> I'm fine, KK. Had allergies
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:15:00 PM] <Shiral> Slept right through it and was amazed to learn there had even BEEN one, KK
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:15:09 PM] <KK> There supposedly was a 6.0 earthquake at around 3:30 this AM, centered in the Napa area.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:15:12 PM] <Shiral> But I'm often sound asleep at 3 am.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:15:39 PM] <KK> This is true. Sane folk should be asleep at that hour.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:15:49 PM] <Shiral> Didn't feel a thing. It was evidently a small fault that nobody's really paid attention to because it hasn't been active in so long
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:15:50 PM] Quit Evie has left this server (Ping timeout: 121 seconds).
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:16:20 PM] <jemler> poor evie.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:16:20 PM] <Shiral> THe only thing that woke me last night was a cat kerfuffle at about 5:00 am
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:16:32 PM] <Jerusha> Your cats?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:16:36 PM] <Shiral> Yup
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:16:41 PM] <KK> And if you're anything like me, you might have concluded that it was one of your cats jumping onto the bed--which is what woke me up during the one in 71 or so. THen I realized I didn't have that many cats.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:17:01 PM] <Jerusha> A catquake
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:17:08 PM] <Shiral> I'd just as soon sleep through Earthquakes. Ever since the Loma Prieta Quake in 1989, quakes scare me silly
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:17:43 PM] <jemler> the quake we had a couple years ago was my only one.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:17:48 PM] <KK> Yep. There was a long, narrow at about shoulder level, right beside my bed, and the 2 cats used to get up there sometimes.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:18:03 PM] <Shiral> It's a pity, some historic buildings were damaged up in Napa. And I'm sure the vineyard owners up there are not happy, since equipment was damaged right before harvest time.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:18:04 PM] <KK> window, window, with sill.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:18:11 PM] <The_Bee> I've exzperienced a few very minor ones here in boston.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:18:37 PM] <Laurna> As long as your not in the epicenter you'll be fine
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:18:49 PM] <TerryOBrien> There's only been one that I felt here in the Midwest, and that was decades ago
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:18:50 PM] <Shiral> You'd have had to have a LOT of cats to duplicate quake action, KK =o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:18:57 PM] <Shiral> BIG HEAVY cats, too
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:19:09 PM] <KK> Well, glad you're ok. I found out about it in a British paper, of all things.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:19:16 PM] <Evie_> Do you have your con scheduled locked down yet, KK?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:19:25 PM] <Shiral> Thanks, all is well here. Although a quake anywhere is nervous making
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:19:32 PM] <KK> Pretty much, Evie.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:20:17 PM] <Evie_> we are hoping to get to Atlanta Thursday evening. I'll be picking DD up after work and then hopefully heading straight for Atlanta
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:20:52 PM] <Jerusha> I would like to be a fly on the wall, but I probably wouldn't make it through customs
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:20:56 PM] <The_Bee> DH and DS going?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:21:01 PM] <Jerusha> As a fly, that is
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:21:29 PM] <The_Bee> you might get swatted
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:21:50 PM] <Shiral> Personally, I'd rather go as a human. =o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:21:53 PM] <Jerusha> Please don't call the SWAT team!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:21:55 PM] <KK> We arrive Thursday afternoon; first panel is Friday, I think.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:22:18 PM] <The_Bee> Have you decided which chapter to read?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:22:18 PM] <Evie_> I'll have to check the schedule. I haven't checked the latest download yet
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:22:48 PM] <DesertRose> Evie, we expect LOTS of pics from the con. Camera and batteries/charging cord are mandatory and don't take up that much space in your luggage. :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:23:02 PM] <KK> I did, but I've forgotten what it was. I'll figure it out again. Something I haven't read yet.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:23:08 PM] <Jerusha> Yes, we want all the latest pics
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:23:24 PM] <Shiral> Be a shutter bug, Evie. =o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:23:32 PM] <Shiral> We want to pics of KK and the Littles
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:23:35 PM] <Jerusha> Well, KK, you could just start at the beginning, and keep going....
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:23:48 PM] <KK> No, I'm doing that now, with the proofing.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:23:53 PM] <Laurna> KK could your husband or someone video tape your reading for YouTube?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:24:19 PM] <Jerusha> Need help? (Just kidding)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:24:48 PM] <KK> Don't think so.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:24:50 PM] <KK> BRB
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:25:05 PM] <Jerusha> Oh dear, I hope I didn't scare KK off!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:25:06 PM] <Laurna> Oh well Thought to give it a try
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:25:11 PM] <Shiral> It'll whet our appetites for December
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:25:43 PM] <Jerusha> I'm expecting a feast in December! (and not Christmas dinner)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:25:50 PM] <DesertRose> :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:25:52 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:26:12 PM] <Shiral> I want a Deryni feast, and THEN Christmas dinner. =o)

[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:26:44 PM] <Jerusha> I'll settle for a quiet glass of fianna with Morgan
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:26:48 PM] <Evie_> Expletives deleted
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:26:48 PM] <jemler> tie a deryni to a stake. how do you like your ribs?

[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:27:45 PM] <jemler> you like your ribs just the way they are, evie?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:27:58 PM] <Shiral> I'm generally not crazy about cannibalism, and especially not where Duncan is concerned
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:28:05 PM] <Jerusha> Hugged, not cooked
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:28:11 PM] * The_Bee adds fresh-baked manchet bread with butter and honey.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:28:38 PM] <Shiral> Didnt' even have time to bait the author traps. But what the heck, we'll pretend.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:28:53 PM] * DesertRose bakes fresh chocolate chip cookies and sets them out.

[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:31:17 PM] <Jerusha> Is DH going with you to Darkover, KK?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:31:30 PM] <KK> Yes, always does. Mother, too.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:31:37 PM] <Jerusha> Oh, great!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:32:05 PM] <KK> She loves it; plans for weeks, maybe even several months.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:32:11 PM] <Shiral> A family trip. =o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:32:12 PM] <The_Bee> This is Darkover's final year?

[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:32:33 PM] <Jerusha> What? Final year?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:32:39 PM] <Shiral> Hi TD
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:32:46 PM] <Jerusha> Hi TD
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:33:01 PM] <KK> Last year was. It continues under a new name, Chessiecon, but run by most of the same people.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:33:03 PM] * TheDeryni waves to the room.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:33:04 PM] <jemler> hi td
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:33:07 PM] <The_Bee> I heaer it's being replaced by a steampuck con.

[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:33:30 PM] <Shiral> Steam puck....Is that hockey played in a sauna?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:33:37 PM] <Shiral> =o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:33:45 PM] <Jerusha> Towels instead of padding
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:33:57 PM] <KK> Not exclusively steampunk, though there will be a track. It will still focus on female fantasy writers.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:34:00 PM] <DesertRose> Or padding made of towels. :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:34:09 PM] <TerryOBrien> or towels as hockey sticks
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:34:19 PM] <The_Bee> and stempunk is music plaed with wine glasses.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:34:26 PM] <Shiral> Yes, Wrengl and Kathi always provided a feast
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:34:32 PM] <bynw> steampunk is a cool genre though
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:34:32 PM] <Jerusha> :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:34:43 PM] <KK> Sadly, both are now gone on.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:34:52 PM] <Shiral> Yes, indeed
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:34:54 PM] <DesertRose> Yes.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:34:57 PM] <TerryOBrien> All this talking about food and feasts is reminding me that I need to get my dinner
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:35:05 PM] <The_Bee> Kathi's gone?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:35:11 PM] <KK> Yep.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:35:12 PM] <jemler> evie, is dd dressing up for the hurdy-gurdy again? :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:35:15 PM] <TerryOBrien> So I'm going to take my leave tonight
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:35:20 PM] <Shiral> Night, Terrt
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:35:22 PM] <KK> Nighters, Terry.

[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:35:41 PM] <Evie_> I don't think she has any particular costume plans this year
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:35:51 PM] <Evie_> at least nothing that elaborate
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:35:55 PM] <TheDeryni> Ack
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:35:59 PM] <The_Bee> Are DH and DS going?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:36:03 PM] <Jerusha> Just colourful wigs?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:36:22 PM] <jemler> evie, you're in the sca right?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:36:45 PM] <Evie_> DH is, but he's driving down separately, since he'll be leaving straight from work. DS starts school this week, so he is staying in town. He also moved into his new apartment this past week, so he's still settling in there.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:36:50 PM] <Evie_> I am, jemler
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:37:10 PM] <KK> She is, indeed.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:37:10 PM] <Jerusha> Did you help DS move, Evie?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:37:16 PM] <Evie_> Yes, Jerusha, she's got lots of wigs and bits and bobs of costume, so I'm sure she'll figure out ways to dress up
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:37:29 PM] <jemler> i saw a pic on fb of you and dh, was thaty dd next to you in a reddish dress?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:38:06 PM] <Evie_> There wasn't much to move, Jerusha. He and DH moved a few items on Friday. Mainly his mattress and some odd bits from his bedrooom
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:38:32 PM] <Evie_> Not sure, jemler. I don't remember that photo off the top of my head
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:38:38 PM] <Jerusha> He will acquire more :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:38:51 PM] <Evie_> I picked up a few kitchen things for DS today while I was out
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:39:13 PM] <Shiral> For a moment I read that as "kitten things" Evie. =o)

[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:40:32 PM] <Jerusha> I used to hard boil eggs in my popcorn popper
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:40:38 PM] <Shiral> Moving can be very absorbing
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:41:02 PM] <Aerlys> did the eggs boil or hatch?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:41:05 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Aerlys.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:41:12 PM] <Shiral> When I was in college, a friend of mine tried making sweet and sour chicken in the hot pot. It was awful!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:41:21 PM] <Jerusha> Boiled - it was the old kind of kettle popper
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:41:25 PM] <jemler> aerlys, they popped!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:41:25 PM] <TheDeryni> Or exploded
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:41:33 PM] <DesertRose> BRB
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:41:48 PM] <bynw> my youngest just moved to college yesterday
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:41:54 PM] <Aerlys> I remember making hambuger helper in the hot pot, sans meat
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:41:58 PM] <KK> But what a magical time, for him and for you. Your baby boy is turning into a man, before your very eyes.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:42:14 PM] <Evie_> Yes he is. :-)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:42:26 PM] <jemler> my great niece has started walking.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:42:29 PM] <Evie_> that's a major milestone, Bynw
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:42:36 PM] <Evie_> that too, jemler. :D
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:42:48 PM] <bynw> empty nest time :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:43:13 PM] <Evie_> I ironed grilled cheese sandwiches wrapped in aluminum foil when I was in college and didn't have access to a stove
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:43:34 PM] <Jerusha> Not empty, just temporarily vacant
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:43:47 PM] <jemler> my sollege is a mile and a half from home.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:43:48 PM] Quit TheDeryni has left this server (Quit: Gotta go. ADC beckons. See you all soon. ).
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:43:52 PM] <Jerusha> The come back, you know
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:43:58 PM] * Aerlys tries to imagine using empty to refer to home, rather than milk cartons and gas tanks
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:44:02 PM] <Shiral> There's nothing I hate worse than a wrinkly grilled cheese sandwich
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:44:13 PM] <Evie_> LOL, Shiral
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:44:15 PM] <Jerusha> It should be well pressed
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:44:19 PM] <KK> But that's what every parent aims for, after all: to raise a young person to prepare him or her to go out into the world and have his or her own great adventures.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:44:31 PM] <Shiral> Think of all the extra room the littles have now, though!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:44:49 PM] <Aerlys> Very true, KK.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:44:52 PM] <Evie_> Does your son have a wedding date set yet, KK?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:44:53 PM] <jemler> adopt a kid.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:44:59 PM] * Jerusha pictures Alaric measuring for an addition
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:45:09 PM] <KK> Not that I've been told. Give them time.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:45:19 PM] <Evie_> I don't think he'd have to add room to Coroth Castle. :-)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:45:43 PM] <Shiral> 'I'm sorry, DS, the littles are having a feast in your old room this weekend. You'll need to stay at school.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:45:50 PM] <Jerusha> But if it's in your basement...
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:45:58 PM] <Shiral> But food and laundry will bring him back. =o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:46:10 PM] <Jerusha> Oh ys!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:46:20 PM] <Jerusha> Yes, I meant
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:46:48 PM] <Aerlys> T
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:46:48 PM] <Evie_> actually DD has called dibs on DS's old room, so her room will end up being the hobby room if she ends up moving
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:47:05 PM] <Aerlys> This reminds me of this poem: http://www.scrapbook.com/poems/doc/11452.html
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:47:16 PM] <Shiral> Not having to scrounge for quarters when every garment you own needs to be washed is a great incentive. =o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:47:17 PM] <jemler> ahh, ds' room had the excape tree?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:47:20 PM] <Jerusha> DS3 had DS1's room claimed in a secondf
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:47:43 PM] <Evie_> Lovely, Aerlys
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:48:09 PM] <Evie_> DS's room is bigger. DD wants more space
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:48:34 PM] <Evie_> she's in a shoebox of a room, and she dreams of a loft bed, and enough room to create a sitting area
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:48:36 PM] <Jerusha> *Sniff* Aerlys
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:48:36 PM] <The_Bee> I thought it might be something like that.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:48:45 PM] <Shiral> The endless quest for more living space..
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:49:01 PM] <jemler> more closet space you mean
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:49:09 PM] <Shiral> That too
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:49:14 PM] <Aerlys> We only have 4 bedrooms, so if the kids want more space, they need to build their own
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:49:21 PM] <Evie_> :-D
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:49:29 PM] <Evie_> and learn valuable carpentry skills. ;-)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:49:44 PM] <jemler> i never understood why women needed 40 pairs of shoes for only 2 feet.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:49:50 PM] <Shiral> Not to mention electric and plumbing skills =o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:49:53 PM] <Jerusha> So long as no one hits a thumb with a hammer
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:49:54 PM] <Aerlys> Dads already taught the boys that
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:49:59 PM] <Evie_> I've never understood that either, jemler, and I"m a woman. :D
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:50:20 PM] <Jerusha> What about the girls, Aerlys?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:50:26 PM] <Aerlys> A hammer is the tool I'm least worried about!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:50:31 PM] <Shiral> I seem to have 3 or 4 pairs that I wear on an ongoing basis. I tend to forget about the rest
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:50:40 PM] <Evie_> Me too, Shiral
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:50:49 PM] <Aerlys> Oh, the girls have kinda learned some, though they really dont share the same interest
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:50:50 PM] <jemler> the most i've ever had was 3. snow boots, tennis shoes, and slippers!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:50:54 PM] Join Dennis has joined this channel (Mibbit@OWIRCN-e00aa7a1.ma.comcast.net).
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:50:59 PM] <jemler> hi dennis
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:50:59 PM] <Shiral> Which is not to say I don't enjoy trying on new pairs. =o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:51:04 PM] <The_Bee> I have some I haven't worn since I bought them
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:51:05 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Dennis!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:51:05 PM] <Shiral> Hello Dennis
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:51:11 PM] <Laurna> Hi Dennis
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:51:11 PM] <The_Bee> Hi Dennis
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:51:20 PM] <Dennis> Hi!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:51:23 PM] <Aerlys> Hello Denis
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:51:23 PM] <Evie_> My kids haven't really picked up DH's building skills, but DD has learned some things about cars. More than DS has, actually.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:51:30 PM] <Jerusha> I only ask, Aerlys, because I am hopeless in that department
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:51:39 PM] <Evie_> though DS can figure out how to repair a broken water line in a pinch
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:51:57 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Dennis. Back.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:52:16 PM] <Aerlys> My grandmother grew up with one pair of shoes that needed to be shared between 4 girls.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:52:17 PM] <Shiral> I was able to replace a burned out headlight bulb a week or so ago. I just did a lot of swearing while working on it. =o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:53:11 PM] <Aerlys> The boys will work wih their dad when they can. Yesterday they were doing masonry work
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:53:32 PM] <Aerlys> DD1 is better at automotive
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:53:33 PM] <Evie_> My grandmother grew up with 7 siblings in a two room house. Not two bedrooms. Two rooms.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:54:22 PM] <Aerlys> Funy how so many people feel like they need a brand new, four bedroom house, with no children. Or is that only out here?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:54:41 PM] <Evie_> There was the bedroom, which was for the kids, and had wall to wall beds with a narrow aisle at the foot of the beds for them to get through the room, and then the front room was the kitchen/living area and also had Mom & Dad's bed.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:54:47 PM] <Jerusha> No, not just there
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:54:48 PM] <Evie_> which was the "couch" during the day
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:54:52 PM] <Dennis> No. People are trained now to want too much space.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:55:10 PM] <Aerlys> and own too much stuff
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:56:26 PM] <Dennis> And not enough books. :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:56:29 PM] <Jerusha> I confess, I do like space
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:56:36 PM] <Jerusha> And books
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:56:37 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, no such thing as too many books. :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:56:54 PM] <Aerlys> We have space (and books!) but we fill it in nicely
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:57:05 PM] <KK> Well, if you each need an office, and at least one guest room....that's four. Minimum.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:57:14 PM] <Aerlys> oh, I posted a pic of the new dog in the gallery
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:57:24 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, I saw and approved. Very cute, Aerlys.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:57:26 PM] <Jerusha> New dog?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:57:28 PM] <Shiral> I have to admit, I like space, too. And quiet to hear myself think. Will plead guilty to excessive number of possessions
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:57:43 PM] <Jerusha> You are not alone, Shiral
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:57:49 PM] <DesertRose> IIRC, you posted a pic of the dog you've had for a bit, too, Aerlys.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:58:03 PM] <Shiral> I like having an office that's not also a bedroom. =o) and a studio that's not also my living room.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:58:23 PM] <DesertRose> http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;pic=213 Aerlys' new furry family member. :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:58:26 PM] <Shiral> I had to move--I was cramping my cat's style
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:58:37 PM] <Aerlys> Yes, Jerusha. Our friends moved to New York, so we took their American Bulldog/Dingo mix. I posted a pic of Pepper, our American Bulldog, too, for comparison
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:58:49 PM] * bynw would want a bedroom, guest room, an office for each of the 2 of us, a server room and a game room. a kitchen, dinning room and living room too (lets not forget the bathroom and maybe at least a 1/2 bath)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:59:27 PM] <DesertRose> What I want is a bathroom with a garden tub. My current bathtub is unsatisfactory for sitting down and bathing. It's okay for showering, though.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:59:35 PM] <Jerusha> Go big or go home,Bynw! :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:59:42 PM] <KK> He does look somewhat bewildered.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:59:46 PM] <Evie_> I've developed a fascination for Tiny Houses. I don't know that I could ever actually live in one, but I love the efficient use of space in them.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:59:48 PM] <Dennis> A bigger bathtub would be very nice.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:59:48 PM] <Shiral> It's nice to have a full size bath tub, yes, I agree
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:59:53 PM] <Aerlys> A garden tub? sounds like what we get if we forget to clean ours
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [07:59:53 PM] <DesertRose> I like my current apartment, though.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:00:08 PM] <DesertRose> One of those big, deep bathtubs wherein you can sit and have a proper soak. :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:00:18 PM] <Shiral> I've gotten spoiled since moving. I can't believe how long I lived in my tiny 1 bedroom, now
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:00:34 PM] <Jerusha> We just bought a cottage, and the bathroom has a built in hot tub
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:00:45 PM] <Shiral> One of my conditions for the new space is that it HAD to have a full sized bath tub
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:00:50 PM] <DesertRose> My place is a small 1-bedroom apartment, but it's enough for me. If anyone lived with me, it would get cramped.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:01:09 PM] <The_Bee> I have a kitchen, a bathroom, and a combo livingroom/bedroom.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:02:00 PM] <Shiral> There are 1 room apartments in SF that people rent that look kind of like MRI tubes
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:02:08 PM] <DesertRose> I have a small-ish galley kitchen, a bedroom, a bathroom, and a combination living/dining room that's all open. The one thing I'd change about it aside the garden tub is that you have to walk through my bedroom to get to the bathroom which is not convenient for guests.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:02:14 PM] <Dennis> My fiancee and I have a two bedroom with a nice big living room and a separate kitchen.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:02:53 PM] <Aerlys> We have a 4200 sq ft box, built in 1960. No its big, but plain, and the layout is a little wonky. $ bedroom, 2 bath (was 1.25 bath when we bought it)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:03:06 PM] <DesertRose> Most of my living room is actually my office now that I have my daughter's old desk, but I still have a small sitting area for company.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:03:15 PM] <Dennis> I remember when I went apartment hunting in Mahattan in the '90s. Three bedroom apt, each bedroom was 5'x10' and cost $800/mo.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:03:45 PM] <DesertRose> Holy crap. That's a teesny bedroom.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:03:47 PM] <Laurna> My sister and I close escrow on tuesday for a 1895 queen ann style 5 bd house
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:03:49 PM] <DesertRose> *teensy
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:03:52 PM] <Shiral> I think it might have been how I got in to building miniature houses--I've got dreams of a grand house, but not the budget for a real one.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:03:52 PM] <Jerusha> Wow, here it's one bedroom and $850 a month. And it's a dive
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:04:02 PM] <Laurna> So looking foraward to moving her stuff in there
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:04:08 PM] <Shiral> Cool, congrats, Laurna
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:04:13 PM] <DesertRose> Nice, Laurna.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:04:21 PM] <Laurna> It is a lovely house
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:04:22 PM] <Jerusha> Nice indeed, Laurna
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:04:30 PM] <The_Bee> good for you, Laurna
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:04:32 PM] <Aerlys> You must post some pics
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:04:33 PM] <DesertRose> My brother is selling his house in Michigan (might have already done) and moving back here to Florida.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:04:48 PM] <Laurna> When we own it I will try
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:04:54 PM] <Jerusha> Period costumes in a period house, Laurna?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:05:14 PM] <Laurna> Yes victorian is my usuall genere
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:05:14 PM] <DesertRose> My oldest brother, I should say, as I have three brothers.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:05:29 PM] <Jerusha> Looking forward to the pics
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:05:33 PM] <Dennis> Good luck!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:05:42 PM] <KK> Congrats, Laurna. Can't wait to see pics.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:05:55 PM] <Laurna> the house is pink inside and out.lol
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:03 PM] <Shiral> Getting those keys is always an exciting moment.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:08 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, I live in a neighborhood full of Victorians, some of which are beautifully restored and some of which need some love.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:10 PM] <Laurna> We plan to paint some of the inside to a soft yellow
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:18 PM] <Shiral> And you can fix it witha few gallons of paint =o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:22 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, that'll be pretty, Laurna.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:32 PM] <Aerlys> Well, folks, I need t scoot. The kids start school tomorrow, and I need to make sure the uniforms are ready, make dinner, get them all ready for an early bedtime.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:34 PM] <DesertRose> My mom's kitchen is painted a very pale sunny yellow.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:38 PM] <Shiral> Been contemplating painting one of my bathroom
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:42 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, nighters, Aerlys.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:42 PM] <Shiral> Bye, Aerlys
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:45 PM] <KK> The former owners did that on purposed, Laurna?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:49 PM] <Laurna> school already?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:52 PM] <Evie_> KK, I have Joram all dressed except for his belt
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:57 PM] <Aerlys> Alameda had some beautiful Victorians, but most were divided into apartments
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:06:58 PM] <Jerusha> Night Aerlys - good luck on the first day of school!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:07:10 PM] <jemler> night aerlys
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:07:11 PM] <Laurna> They moved the house 25 years ago and completely rebuilt it
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:07:28 PM] <Laurna> Using all old style touches
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:07:47 PM] <KK> My kitchen in Ireland was a lovely, creamy pale yellow for a while.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:07:48 PM] <The_Bee> bye aerlys
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:08:06 PM] <Laurna> Oh Ireland. Nice
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:08:08 PM] <Shiral> That was a very nice, well-lit kitchen as I recall
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:08:11 PM] <Jerusha> What did you change it to, KK?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:08:15 PM] * Aerlys waves good-bye, steps into her portal, and trips over a guinea pig...
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:08:18 PM] <Shiral> Library was also nice.=o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:08:23 PM] <Laurna> Good night Aerlys
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:08:26 PM] <DesertRose> The family of one of DD's childhood friends bought and restored an old Victorian in the neighborhood where I currently live, and they had a whole album of before, during, and after pics. They really did a lot of work to restore its glory.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:08:27 PM] Quit Aerlys has left this server (Quit: CGI:IRC).
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:08:29 PM] <Shiral> LOL talented guinea pig
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:08:46 PM] <KK> Redid it completely, and walls were terra-cotta, which was stunning.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:08:49 PM] <Jerusha> Or bruised
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:09:34 PM] <DesertRose> And some of my SCA friends have a Victorian in another (nearby) section of town that they've restored. It's gorgeous.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:10:13 PM] <KK> We've sort of duplicated that library in our present house, only it isn't nearly as large. Oak paneling and bookcases, though. (The old library no longer exists in the form it was when we lived there. Philistines!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:10:25 PM] <Laurna> This is in the historic district so there are several around us.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:10:35 PM] <Shiral> Ack! How could they?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:10:40 PM] <DesertRose> The exterior paint job sounds kind of weird on paper, but in person, it's glorious. It's kind of a pale vaguely lavender-ish gray with purple and gold trim. It's magnificent.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:10:50 PM] <Jerusha> Dasterdly crew
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:10:56 PM] <Shiral> I can imagine that.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:10:58 PM] <DesertRose> Who takes down a library in an historical house?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:11:00 PM] <DesertRose> Ugh.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:11:10 PM] <bynw> heretics do
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:11:13 PM] <Laurna> A library is a must have if you have the space.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:11:14 PM] <DesertRose> Evidently.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:11:33 PM] <bynw> they should be burnt at the stake for such heresy
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:11:53 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, if I had the space, I would definitely have a dedicated library/craft room.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:11:55 PM] <Dennis> Mmm... burnt at the steak.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:11:57 PM] <Shiral> After we moved away from the neighborhood we originally lived in, friends from our old neighborhood reported that the new owners of our former house had really WRECKED it.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:11:58 PM] <The_Bee> We had bookshelves, but not a separate library when i was growing up.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:12:16 PM] <DesertRose> With my comfy La-Z-Boy installed where I can sit and read in my library. :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:12:29 PM] <Shiral> And the then new house had every room painted a different, garish color
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:12:41 PM] <KK> They took out some of the bookcases, which had been built from a tree felled on the property by lightning, removed the tapestry panels from the paneling, and painted most of the paneling pale grey. I've seen pics. It's hideous.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:12:50 PM] <Jerusha> With a shiral crystal on the library table
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:13:07 PM] <Jerusha> Ask, KK
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:13:12 PM] <DesertRose> Why oh why would they do that, KK? (Rhetorical question)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:13:17 PM] <Shiral> Yikes, KK. I suppose you can't interview prospective buyers to make sure they have good taste, though
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:13:26 PM] <Jerusha> Aak, I meant
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:13:32 PM] <Dennis> Wow. That makes me very sad. What's the point of buying a beautiful old house and wrecking.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:13:41 PM] <Shiral> TOo bad, that was a lovely room!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:13:48 PM] <jemler> when my sister moved into her house, the previous owners had painted the kitchen cabinets white. when she stripped the paint, they weew oak cabinets!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:13:48 PM] <Evie_> that's heartbreaking. :-(
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:13:58 PM] <KK> All I can say is, we took the money. And they spent a great deal of money undoing a lot of what we'd done, over the years. We don't like to think about it.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:14:09 PM] <Laurna> Oh NOOOO. Don't buy a old house if your going to do that.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:14:11 PM] <DesertRose> There was a place I wanted to rent a room in when I was in college that had built-in bookcases in the bedroom I'd have been renting. Sadly, the owners didn't want such a young roommate (I was around 21 at the time). It was beachfront, too. I still wish I'd gotten that room.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:14:20 PM] <Shiral> Concentrate on giving love and care to your new house, instead
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:14:31 PM] <Shiral> Mine is still a work in progress
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:14:48 PM] <Jerusha> What kind of tapestry panels, KK?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:15:13 PM] <DesertRose> A beachfront house with built in bookcases in my bedroom, and she only wanted something around $300 a month and split utilities. I WANTED that room.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:15:14 PM] <Dennis> It's like the plot of the movie Beetlejuice, with horrible nouveau riche moving into a lovely old house.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:15:19 PM] <The_Bee> I sometimes fantasize about how I'd decorate a house, but first I have to win the PCH sweepstakes.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:15:29 PM] <KK> We do. And it's just as lovely, in its way. Federal period. (Gothics are a bit thin on the ground in this areal, but we've decided that's really where our hearts lie.)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:15:43 PM] <Laurna> I wish I had pics of the stair case it is dark wood and lovely
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:15:45 PM] <Shiral> Federal is pretty darn nice.=o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:16:06 PM] <Laurna> And pocket doors
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:16:10 PM] <Shiral> Yeah, America has a distinct shortage of gothic houses
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:16:33 PM] <KK> Yes, but this house lacks dressing rooms, which we had at Holybrooke. And it isn't as companionable as the old house.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:16:46 PM] <Shiral> I'm trying to find a dining room hutch/China cabinet to complement my Queen Anne table and chairs
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:17:01 PM] <DesertRose> Federal/Georgian has nice clean lines, though.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:17:08 PM] <Shiral> After that, new drapes!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:17:14 PM] <DesertRose> Dressing rooms are nice, though.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:17:36 PM] <Jerusha> I could use one of those
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:17:42 PM] <KK> We've put up some period wallpaper, too.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:17:55 PM] <Laurna> What color
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:17:57 PM] <DesertRose> I change clothes standing in my closet doorway, no dressing room for me. :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:18:05 PM] <DesertRose> Ooh, I bet that's cool, KK.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:18:11 PM] <jemler> shiral, are you in maryland?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:18:12 PM] <The_Bee> I dress in my bathroom.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:18:16 PM] <Shiral> I get dressed in my bedroom or bathroom
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:18:22 PM] <Shiral> No, California, Jemler
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:18:24 PM] <DesertRose> No, Shiral is in northern California, I think.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:18:33 PM] <Shiral> Around SF Bay Area
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:18:38 PM] <Shiral> Silicon Valley
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:19:03 PM] <DesertRose> How far are you from Cottonwood, Shiral? (My aunt and uncle live in Cottonwood, which is why I ask.)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:19:13 PM] <Shiral> Not sure, DR.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:19:20 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, I was just being nosy. ;)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:19:36 PM] <Shiral> That's okay, but a little hard to answer since I'm not sure where Cottonwood IS.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:19:37 PM] <The_Bee> between San Jose and San Francisco, aren't you?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:19:50 PM] <Shiral> Yes, more toward San Jose
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:19:54 PM] <DesertRose> I know it's somewhere in northern California, but I'm not sure exactly where, and northern California covers a fairish bit of ground.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:20:00 PM] <KK> a mossy green in the drawing room, complete with gilding strips along the crown molding and door surrounds and baseboards; and a pattern with a verdigris background and sort of Jacobean floral print in our bedroom. We used the tan background colorway in a room at Holybrooke, and I loved the verdigris one but it didn't go with the room there. So I saved a sa
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:20:25 PM] <jemler> i was checking ebay. they had china cabinets, pickup only, but in maryland, ohio, colorado.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:20:29 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, awesome, KK. You got cut off at "So I saved a sa," though.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:20:30 PM] <Shiral> Oh, just a little, DR. =o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:20:48 PM] <jemler> mple?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:20:49 PM] <Laurna> Sounds relaxing and comforting.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:20:53 PM] <KK> saved a sample and ordered it up for the house here.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:21:01 PM] <DesertRose> That sounds really pretty, KK.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:21:13 PM] <Shiral> There are plenty of china cabinets on Craigs list, but some of them are too huge, the wrong style or color or just plain Butt-Ugly
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:21:44 PM] <The_Bee> My fantasy house had 4 rooms, each decorated in the colors of a differtn season.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:21:47 PM] <DesertRose> My mom has a nice china cabinet, but it came from my stepdad's mom; the entire dining room set of furniture did, and all matches.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:21:52 PM] <Jerusha> I confess I am not a fan of wallpaper. It clashes with my needlepoit
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:22:02 PM] <Jerusha> needle point, that is
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:22:03 PM] <KK> It is. And we have a canopy bed, with canopy crocheted or macrame-ed, in natural color. It finished the bed without giving a claustrophobic feel.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:22:10 PM] <DesertRose> Oh wow, KK.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:22:23 PM] <Shiral> I can take my time. I looked for my new dining room light fixture for several months before I found just the right thing.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:22:25 PM] <Laurna> love it.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:22:30 PM] <DesertRose> I love canopy beds. I had one when I was a kid, because I begged and pleaded for one.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:22:45 PM] <Jerusha> Now a canopy bed would be very nice
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:22:52 PM] <KK> I'd always wanted one; just had to wait a while.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:23:05 PM] <Shiral> Sometimes I dream of having one of those tester beds. Then I realize I live with a cat who loves to climb and has sharp claws
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:23:06 PM] <DesertRose> I got a little older and wanted a bigger bed and was tired of dusting/washing the canopy periodically, so I haven't had a canopy bed since I was a teenager.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:23:46 PM] <DesertRose> But I had that frilly French-provincial style of canopy bed that a lot of young girls seem to favor.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:23:59 PM] <KK> That's the nice thing about this canopy. I suppose it still gets dusty, but most of the dust falls right through. :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:24:11 PM] <Jerusha> Why do I picture a swashbuckling cat, swinging across the bed?
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:24:13 PM] <Shiral> I did get a new mattress and foundation in June and I LOVE it
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:24:15 PM] <Evie_> Luke is asleep on my right wrist, which is also asleep now
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:24:17 PM] <Laurna> I have a four poster bed that I draped soft sage green fabric over.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:24:40 PM] <DesertRose> The one I had when I was a kid was pink and frilly.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:24:57 PM] <Shiral> I have the quilt my sister made for my 50th birthday. Planned my bedroom color scheme around it.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:24:59 PM] <DesertRose> I really loved the color pink when I was a kid. :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:25:06 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, that's awesome, Shiral.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:25:12 PM] <KK> Ours could be just 4-poster, but the canopy frame just finishes it. And the frame is slightly bowed; very graceful.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:25:16 PM] <Laurna> I love lying in bed and looking up at the fabric and not the ceiling.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:25:37 PM] <DesertRose> I have a couple of quilts my grandmother made for me, but they mainly live in my cedar chest because I don't want them to get messed up; they have too much sentimental value.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:25:54 PM] <KK> I look <through> the canopy at the ceiling. And there's a crystal chandelier in the center of the room.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:26:04 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, that sounds great, KK.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:26:05 PM] <Laurna> Oh nice
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:26:11 PM] <The_Bee> I have a braided rug my great-aunt made.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:26:11 PM] <Jerusha> Lovely
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:27:04 PM] <DesertRose> One of the quilts my Nana made was done while my mom was pregnant with me, so it's childish in style and kind of unisex (Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam) since they half expected me to be a boy.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:27:31 PM] <The_Bee> well. there was a 50-50 chance
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:27:33 PM] <DesertRose> The other one, she made when I was about 10, and it's all Sunbonnet Sue. I need to stitch down the trim on part of that one; it's gotten torn over the years.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:27:33 PM] <Shiral> I love my quilt, I want to see and use it daily
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:27:35 PM] <KK> Yike, look at the time. Alas, I really need to get back to that proofing--and will be in Atlanta next week. You guys have a great fortnight--and Evie, I'll see you in Atlanta, where we will have a littles exchange.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:27:48 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, see you, KK. Have a good fortnight, and enjoy Dragon*Con!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:27:52 PM] <Shiral> Okay, have a good time in Atlanta, KK
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:27:53 PM] <DesertRose> Thanks for coming to see us!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:27:55 PM] <bynw> have a good night KK
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:01 PM] <Shiral> Evie, we'll want a detailed report.=o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:04 PM] <Jerusha> Have a great time, KK
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:07 PM] <The_Bee> Thanks for coming, KK. Have a great Dragoncon
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:09 PM] <KK> Ta-ta for now.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:09 PM] <Evie_> See you this weekend, KK!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:10 PM] <Laurna> Good night KK, Have a great Dragon Con
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:10 PM] <DesertRose> Evie, we expect a detailed report with photos!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:14 PM] <DesertRose> Night, KK!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:18 PM] <Jerusha> Every little detail, Evie!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:20 PM] <Evie_> will do
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:24 PM] <DesertRose> :D
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:28 PM] <Laurna> YEs Evie
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:28 PM] <Dennis> Night, KK! Have fun at DragonCon!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:30 PM] <Shiral> Pics of KK with Littles, especially
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:33 PM] <jemler> nite kk
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:34 PM] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:44 PM] <Evie_> I'll bring my computer. Hopefully the hotel won't charge for wifi use
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:28:54 PM] <Jerusha> Most don't these days
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:02 PM] <KK> I will also have a new lens in my left eye, the next time I show up here. :)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:03 PM] <Shiral> Bye, KK
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:07 PM] <Evie_> They do in downtown Atlanta
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:10 PM] <DesertRose> Good luck on that, KK!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:17 PM] <Evie_> they charge for everything but the air you breathe, just about
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:22 PM] <Jerusha> Yes, KK - good luck
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:25 PM] <Shiral> Hope your clarity of vision speeds your work.=o)
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:27 PM] <Laurna> Good luck at the Eye doctor
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:27 PM] <DesertRose> *sends quick-healing woodgies to KK*
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:30 PM] <The_Bee> Your vision will improve greatly, KK
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:43 PM] <KK> Thanks, all of you. Nighters!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:47 PM] <DesertRose> Night!
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:49 PM] <The_Bee> mine did
[Sunday, August 24, 2014] [08:29:54 PM] <Jerusha> Night, KK!

"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.)
