[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:05:00 PM] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:05:00 PM] <The_Bee> Hi KK!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:05:01 PM] <Dennis> Hi, KK!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:05:05 PM] <Laurna> Had a really good storm about an hour ago
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:05:08 PM] <Laurna> Hi KK
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:05:14 PM] <The_Bee> How was Dragoncon?

[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:05:30 PM] <DesertRose> And your eye(s)?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:05:33 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Shiral.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:05:36 PM] <Shiral> Hello all
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:05:39 PM] <Laurna> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:05:42 PM] <The_Bee> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:05:54 PM] <Laurna> Oh yes Can you see the computer screen now?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:06:22 PM] <Dennis> Hi, Shiral!Q
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:06:28 PM] <KK> Hi, guys. Dragoncon was good. MIssed our connection coming home because of late arrival of our plane, so we spent a night in DC and got home Tuesday instead of Monday, but otherwise it was good.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:06:36 PM] <DesertRose> Oops.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:06:55 PM] <The_Bee> and have you had your eye surgery ?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:07:04 PM] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:07:22 PM] <KK> Only with one eye, Laurna. The new lense is brilliant, but dealing with the double vision without correction is the pits.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:07:25 PM] <Shiral> Hi Dennis, DR, Bynw, Jemler, KK Laurna and The Bee
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:07:38 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, I bet. When do you get the other eye done?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:07:41 PM] <KK> Hi, Shiral.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:07:51 PM] <The_Bee> They usually do one eye at a time, I think.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:07:52 PM] <Shiral> Missed connections are no fun
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:07:55 PM] <Laurna> Oh Double vission? I hope that is temperarry
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:08:01 PM] Join Jerusha has joined this channel (Mibbit@DD8CB6.5E6C59.A668A0.9C1443).
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:08:04 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Jerusha.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:08:08 PM] <Shiral> Hello Jerusah
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:08:18 PM] <Dennis> Hi, Jerusha!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:08:21 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Everyone!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:08:22 PM] <Laurna> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:08:34 PM] <KK> October 4th, but I'm hoping they can move it up a bit. The double vision can only be fixed with prisms or muscle surgry, which I hope can happen quickly.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:08:39 PM] <The_Bee> You may need special lenss to correct that. You'll know more when the other eye is done.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:08:43 PM] * Shiral snaps fingers and produces a laden tea table
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:08:49 PM] <KK> Meanwhile I can't drive safely.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:09:02 PM] <Shiral> Wow, that's annoying
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:09:04 PM] <DesertRose> Oh that sucks.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:09:06 PM] <Jerusha> Bummer
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:09:11 PM] <KK> Very annoying.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:09:17 PM] <DesertRose> I can imagine.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:09:22 PM] <Shiral> Limits your mobility a lot
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:09:30 PM] <Laurna> Oh that is awful I would be lost if I couldn't drive
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:09:36 PM] <The_Bee> I've never had a driver's license, so that didn't bother me.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:09:51 PM] <KK> On top of that, I somehow copied down the wrong citation for one of the TKD chapter citations, couldn't find it, so had to choose another chapter heading--one-eyed.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:00 PM] <DesertRose> You can barely get by where I live without being able to drive.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:03 PM] <DesertRose> Oh no!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:09 PM] <Jerusha> Eek!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:11 PM] <Laurna> woops
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:20 PM] <Shiral> Arg... to really louse things up you need a computer
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:21 PM] Join Aerlys has joined this channel (~ae1fc20e@971820.DC5E26.E57A87.522C17).
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:22 PM] <Dennis> That must have not been fun. :(
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:25 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Aerlys.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:30 PM] <The_Bee> Hi Aerlys
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:30 PM] <Laurna> Hi Aerlys
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:31 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Aerlys!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:33 PM] <Shiral> Hi Aerlys
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:36 PM] <Dennis> Hi Aerlys!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:43 PM] <KK> I'll be doing a lot of cleaning out closets, filing stuff, and watching TV one-eyed, at least until I get hte other eye done.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:47 PM] <Aerlys> salvete!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:10:51 PM] <DesertRose> Ugh, KK.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:11:03 PM] <KK> Ugh, indeed.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:11:04 PM] <DesertRose> That's annoying.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:11:14 PM] <Aerlys> yikes, only one eye at a time?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:11:18 PM] <Laurna> But the first Eye is healing well I hope?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:11:20 PM] <The_Bee> Before my cataract surgery, I thought my bathroomwalls were gray. After, I discovered they're lavender.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:11:22 PM] <Jerusha> Filing is OK, cleaning closets not so much fun. Unless you find lost treasures
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:11:22 PM] <DesertRose> They usually only do one at a time.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:11:25 PM] <Shiral> You'll be all ready for "talk like a Pirate Day" On September 19th, though
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:11:53 PM] <KK> Yep, but one can only go as quickly as one can. And yes, the 1st eye is doing great. The drops stung the first couple of days, but that's past now.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:12:10 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, my mom said that was the most annoying thing about it, the eye drop regimen.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:12:29 PM] <KK> Oh, is that when it is? But I've already been a pirate--though I still have to go pirate at night until the end of hte week.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:12:52 PM] <Shiral> You're just ahead of schedule, Katherine=O)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:12:56 PM] <KK> No, having the double vision is far worse than the drops.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:13:03 PM] <jemler> do you have any of the movies?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:13:22 PM] <DesertRose> I don't think Mom had the double vision problem, but I really don't remember. It's been years since she had it done.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:13:52 PM] <The_Bee> I still have double vision sometimes, nearly 5 years later.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:13:55 PM] <KK> We have some, but I"ll probably mostly watch things on HBO and Starz and PBS and such. Lots of good stuff on cable.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:14:07 PM] <DesertRose> :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:14:11 PM] <KK> I saw 12 Years a Slave last night, but was not terrible impressed. Too slow.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:14:16 PM] <DesertRose> Ah.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:14:18 PM] <Shiral> Everyone on TV will look as if they have an aura
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:14:31 PM] <Jerusha> The Deryni Channel
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:14:39 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:14:43 PM] <jemler> KKTV!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:14:44 PM] <Shiral> I'd watch that.=o)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:14:53 PM] <Laurna> I saw the first episode of Outlander that looked fun. but then they wanted to charge for the next weeks so have not seen them.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:14:55 PM] <Dennis> Heh.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:15:03 PM] <Shiral> Until they come up with a Deryni Holodeck
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:15:06 PM] <DesertRose> :D
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:15:11 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:15:32 PM] <DesertRose> So how are the Camberian littles settling in? :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:15:37 PM] <Jerusha> I'll have to program in Morgan :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:15:47 PM] <jemler> should we lay traps for Evie?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:15:49 PM] <The_Bee> I don't THINK I'm being charged for Outlander. maybe I'd better check.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:15:56 PM] <Shiral> I hope they like their new home
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:16:09 PM] * Shiral sets traps with little doll heads on stakes
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:16:10 PM] <Jerusha> Roll out a head and see if she appears?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:16:34 PM] <KK> No aura. And the double vision thing has nothing to do with the cataract surgery. I've had it for years, corrected with prisms. But I've about gotten to the end of what can be corrected with prisms, so surgery is probably the way to go. Children often have it.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:16:35 PM] <jemler> i'll do Duncan! :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:16:35 PM] <DesertRose> I pinged her on Google chat but no answer, and she never pm'd me via the board to say she wasn't coming, so I don't know what's going on.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:16:39 PM] <Laurna> I saw pictures of Penrhyn Castle,in Gwynedd, Wales. that looked like a cool place to visit.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:16:47 PM] <Aerlys> perhaps the trauma of Duncan's decapitation has taken its toll
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:16:53 PM] <DesertRose> Maybe so.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:17:23 PM] <Jerusha> Or maybe someone found the head and she drove back to Atlanta
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:17:38 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, that's awful, KK. Well, I hope they can get your eyes sorted out. Not being able to see clearly is the pits.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:17:39 PM] <Jerusha> (Though I doubt it)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:17:41 PM] <jemler> why? what happened?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:18:04 PM] <KK> I think Evie was going to be at an SCA event this weekend, and doubted she'd make it to chat.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:18:20 PM] <Jerusha> Ah, that would explain it
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:18:22 PM] <DesertRose> jemler: you should read RhemuthCastle.com. Duncan lost his head at Dragon*Con, but she had a replacement head so she recapitated (is that a word?) him.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:18:24 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, okay.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:18:46 PM] <Shiral> Losing one's head is VERY hard on one's vision
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:18:49 PM] <Laurna> Recapitated? lol
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:18:52 PM] <DesertRose> Indeed.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:19:04 PM] <KK> The thing she wrote on Duncan's decapitation was brilliant--and I was with her when it happened, probably coming through the food court by the hotel. Fortunately, she has spares of his head.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:19:05 PM] <Jerusha> Duncan needs a headlock
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:19:16 PM] <DesertRose> :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:19:24 PM] <Shiral> I can just picture Loris cursing "What?! They put a new HEAD on that jumped up Deryni!?"
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:19:28 PM] <DesertRose> ROFL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:19:35 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:19:48 PM] <KK> He does, indeed. He also lost a shoe, though that was the least of his worries, as it happened.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:20:02 PM] <DesertRose> Shoes are fairly easily replaced, unlike heads. :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:20:09 PM] <Jerusha> My goodness. Tough crowd in Atlanta
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:20:20 PM] <Aerlys> typical little, losing a shoe. glad mine always kept their heads, though
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:20:24 PM] <Shiral> Talk about having a frustrating life, Loris tries burning him, but he gets rescued and now they just happened to have a spare head..."
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:20:27 PM] <DesertRose> Well, Atlanta during Dragon*Con is a zoo anyway.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:20:33 PM] <KK> Yes. And she was complaining about those shoes anyway. Needed to reglue the soles.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:20:34 PM] <Laurna> She said she had plans to redie his hair to leave blonde strickes in this time.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:20:42 PM] <DesertRose> I've never been there, but I can imagine.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:21:07 PM] <Shiral> The pictures definitely looked crowded. Darkover is more my speed
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:21:16 PM] <Jerusha> Charmed life might be more like it, Shiral
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:21:37 PM] <Shiral> Yes, from Duncan's perspective, anyway. =o)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:21:57 PM] <DesertRose> I'm glad I was at an SCA event last weekend. Dragon*Con is just too many people in too small a space for my tastes.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:22:12 PM] <DesertRose> I'd like to go to Dragon*Con once, but I think once would be enough.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:22:13 PM] <Jerusha> How was the event, DR?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:22:13 PM] <Laurna> Did the Rhys and Evaine Littles make it back safely to your house KK?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:22:51 PM] <DesertRose> Fantastic. I spent most of the weekend peacefully scribing with the other scribes in the air-conditioned Lyceum, and we had a great time.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:23:32 PM] <DesertRose> My daughter may end up as a deputy kingdom-level silent herald because she's been the first person to show an interest to the head (and currently only) silent herald.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:23:46 PM] <KK> Yes, they made it back safely. Haven't had time to set them up here yet, but I did take Camber out of the box to inspect him--his sandals need back-straps--and I also looked at Joram. Evaine and Rhys are still wrapped up safely.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:24:00 PM] <DesertRose> She did silent heralding in court on Sunday night, which was really cool. She was in a boatload of the pictures from Sunday night's court.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:24:16 PM] <KK> What is a silent herald?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:24:22 PM] <The_Bee> silent heralds?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:24:22 PM] <Jerusha> Silent herald?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:24:24 PM] <DesertRose> ASL interpreting.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:24:30 PM] <KK> Ah.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:24:31 PM] <DesertRose> It's new.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:24:33 PM] <The_Bee> Ah!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:24:40 PM] <Jerusha> Ah
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:24:59 PM] <KK> Very. Are there that many hearing-impaired folk playing SCA these days?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:25:02 PM] <DesertRose> She put on her prettiest tunic dress and signed pretty much all of the court business.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:25:22 PM] <DesertRose> Enough that there's an audience for the silent heralding, yes. :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:25:30 PM] <The_Bee> How long has she been doing ASL?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:25:31 PM] <Shiral> I pictured a Herald stepping out in front of the court, blowing a fanfare and then doing something like a game of charades with the whole court having to guess what he was announcing.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:25:48 PM] <Jerusha> LOL, Shiral
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:25:52 PM] <KK> Wow. I thought it maybe was a book herald, who researches arms.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:26:01 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:26:02 PM] <DesertRose> I don't think we had very many at this particular event, though.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:26:28 PM] <KK> Or like a protocol herald, which is what I was, who writes ceremonies.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:26:33 PM] <DesertRose> She's been signing since she was a kid, and her best friend got most of the certification for ASL interpreting and then decided she didn't want to do it for a living.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:27:05 PM] <Laurna> A friend of mine signed for years at Disneyland. she loved it.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:27:16 PM] <Shiral> "Sounds like Duck.... the... the Duck of Corwyn?"
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:27:23 PM] <DesertRose> The Kingdom Silent Herald had to teach her some of the signs they've had to make up for words that are common in the SCA but not in ASL.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:27:45 PM] <Jerusha> I was wondering about that
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:28:37 PM] <DesertRose> Well, there isn't much use in ASL for a sign for Baroness, but there is in the SCA for sure. :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:29:44 PM] <jemler> Baroness - Stick your nose in the air and walk with an exagerrated waggle in your hips! :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:29:47 PM] <DesertRose> But, hey, ASL is a living language. They make up new signs all the time for new concepts.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:30:18 PM] <Shiral> Flexibility is a good thing
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:30:21 PM] <DesertRose> Uh, no, jemler. It's the sign for the letter "B" placed up at the forehead kind of where the front of a coronet would be.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:30:57 PM] <jemler> are you sure?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:31:18 PM] <Shiral> So how would you differentiate between a baron and a baroness when signing?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:31:23 PM] <Laurna> LOL I am invissioning the letter L instead sorry
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:31:49 PM] <jemler> use the sign for father
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:32:02 PM] <DesertRose> One is on the right side of the head and the other is on the left, I think.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:32:14 PM] <Dennis> Yay! Finished chapter 7!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:32:19 PM] <DesertRose> Sometimes with gendered signs, it's in the context, too.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:32:28 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Laurna.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:32:37 PM] <jemler> alright dennis! you are officially bankrupt!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:32:51 PM] <Shiral> Well yes. if the person in question was standing right there, they'd figure it out
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:33:28 PM] <Shiral> Cesca has just arrived to say hello
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:33:37 PM] <The_Bee> Hi Cesca
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:33:38 PM] <Laurna> lol Chapter 7 of what may I ask.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:33:39 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Cesca!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:33:40 PM] <DesertRose> Or if you're talking about a baroness' dress, you'll figure out quickly that the signer didn't mean baron.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:33:45 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Cesca! *pets*
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:33:57 PM] <Shiral> She's sending everyone a purr
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:34:08 PM] <Dennis> Morally, jemler?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:34:20 PM] <Dennis> Also, fed the Miss. She gets cross otherwise.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:34:43 PM] <Dennis> Freelance copyediting job. 10 chapters total.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:34:52 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Dennis.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:34:59 PM] <Aerlys> nice
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:35:08 PM] <Laurna> Hope it is a good read. with little errors
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:35:22 PM] <Shiral> Sounds like you're making progress
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:35:34 PM] <Dennis> Missy is not here, as I had the temerity to feed her 25 minutes late.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:35:46 PM] Join Evie_ has joined this channel (~IceChat9@OWIRCN-e8ce5021.al.charter.com).
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:35:50 PM] <Jerusha> Tsk, tsk
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:35:53 PM] <The_Bee> Hi Evie!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:35:55 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Evie_!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:35:55 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Evie!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:35:57 PM] <Laurna> Hello Evie
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:35:59 PM] <Dennis> It is. Many fewer issues than the last job I did.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:36:01 PM] <Shiral> Hello Evie
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:36:02 PM] Nick Evie_ is now known as Evie.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:36:09 PM] Mode derynibot gives channel operator privileges to Evie.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:36:09 PM] <Dennis> Hi, Evie!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:36:11 PM] <jemler> hi evie
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:36:18 PM] <Evie> hi
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:36:29 PM] <KK> You did make it!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:36:32 PM] <Shiral> My cats definitely let me know they're displeased when I'm late with meals
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:36:33 PM] <Dennis> Any other hurdles to publication for tKD? Or is it all in the hands of the publisher now?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:36:53 PM] <Aerlys> Hi Evie!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:37:05 PM] <Dennis> The Miss is actually pretty good about it. I just feel badly.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:37:07 PM] <Evie> Sorry I'm late. The route from DH's new place that he swore only took 1 hr and 10 minutes to drive actually takes 1 hr and 50 minutes. And that's driving at 80 mph most of the way.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:37:15 PM] <Evie> I just asked him if he normally flies to get here
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:37:17 PM] <DesertRose> It's okay.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:37:20 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:37:29 PM] <Dennis> He must drive REALLY fast.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:37:31 PM] <The_Bee> glad you're here
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:37:32 PM] <jemler> maybe he has a secret portal!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:37:37 PM] <Aerlys> the longest distance between two points is a short cut
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:37:38 PM] <Jerusha> Another new place?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:38:01 PM] <Shiral> DH has a jet pack, maybe?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:38:05 PM] <DesertRose> BRB, want a snack. :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:38:27 PM] <Evie> His new trailer, Jerusha. I hadn't seen it yet
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:38:30 PM] <Shiral> The doll heads on stakes worked, just slowly
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:38:31 PM] <jemler> evie, sorry to hear about Duncan. KK will have to write him off in a later book.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:38:42 PM] <Evie> No, he's got a new head now
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:38:44 PM] <KK> TKD is now in the hands of the publishers, unless they have some question about the proofing notes I sent them on Wednesday.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:38:47 PM] <Evie> I had a spare for him
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:39:04 PM] <jemler> a case of 2 haeds are better than 1?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:39:04 PM] <Jerusha> Good thing
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:39:04 PM] <Shiral> Loris would have had a fit if he'd known, Evie
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:39:08 PM] <The_Bee> But will he be the same person? ;)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:39:08 PM] <Dennis> Hurrah! Congratulations, KK!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:39:26 PM] <Laurna> NoNO! No "writing off Duncan" in any book
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:39:27 PM] <Evie> This is Duncan's third head now. I ruined his first one
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:39:30 PM] <Dennis> Nope. He's going to wake up as Guaire of Arliss.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:39:34 PM] <Aerlys> new advances in transplant surgery by Dr. Evie
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:39:40 PM] <Evie> LOL Dennis
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:39:51 PM] <Shiral> Well Halloween IS coming....
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:39:53 PM] <Shiral> =o)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:40:04 PM] <Dennis> And now, on to Chapter 8!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:40:07 PM] <Laurna> Headless horseman
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:40:20 PM] <Shiral> Evie's just discovering her inner Dr. Frankenstein
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:40:21 PM] <KK> No, with some serious help from Healer Helena.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:40:26 PM] <Evie> Duncan, Helena, and Dhugal were with me at the SCA event I just got back from.Dhugal has spiffy new court garb
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:40:39 PM] <Jerusha> Pictures to follow?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:40:45 PM] <Laurna> Picks please
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:40:45 PM] * Aerlys imagines Evie replacing the little's heads with little pumpkins
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:40:55 PM] <Laurna> lol aerlys
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:40:58 PM] <DesertRose> Cool, Evie.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:41:02 PM] <Evie> eventually. Right now Luke is "helping" me chat by lying across my right arm
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:41:19 PM] <Shiral> Francesca's lying on my left arm
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:41:25 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Luke. *pets*
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:41:26 PM] <Shiral> Maybe she wants to flirt with Luke
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:41:30 PM] <Dennis> Missy's still ignoring me.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:41:36 PM] <Jerusha> Maybe you two should work together
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:41:37 PM] <Laurna> Jessa is on me feet
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:42:33 PM] <DesertRose> What event did you attend, Evie?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:42:46 PM] <Evie> KK, I had fun putting that mini comic strip together. My best friend loved the line about "It could have happened to anyone" as Duncan's body was lying there headless. "No," he emailed me, "It could NOT!" :D
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:42:56 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:43:02 PM] <jemler> KK. I have a question for you.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:43:02 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:43:03 PM] <Evie> Bacon Bash, DR
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:43:12 PM] <DesertRose> That sounds interesting. :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:43:14 PM] <Dennis> Mmm... bacon bash!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:43:22 PM] <Jerusha> Dinner was bacon?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:43:24 PM] <Shiral> Sounds like a tasty weekend, anyway
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:43:31 PM] <KK> It was an amazing comic strip, Evie.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:43:40 PM] <Evie> It was a bacon-themed feast, even down to figuring out ways to incorporate bits of bacon into desserts
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:43:40 PM] <KK> Jemler, ask away.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:44:10 PM] <Evie> There were some bacon wrapped dates that were amazing
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:44:20 PM] <Laurna> yumm
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:44:36 PM] <Evie> dates as in the fruit, before jemler's imagination goes too wild
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:44:59 PM] <Laurna> ROFl
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:45:02 PM] <Jerusha> It was an interesting idea....
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:45:06 PM] <Shiral> I had something like that at a Spanish restaurant last month, It was a small plates restaurant, but I could have eaten an order by myself, they were so good
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:45:07 PM] <jemler> we had someone new last week. gerrel. he saw you read at dragoncon and said there was a hint to who shouted at jorians burning. but wouldn't/couldn't tell use who shouted. any clues?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:45:30 PM] <Shiral> WEll, a person wrapped in bacon wouldn't make the most interesting date
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:45:39 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:45:52 PM] <Shiral> Not to mention they'd be kind of greasy
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:45:59 PM] <Jerusha> A sizzling date, I'm sure
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:46:00 PM] <KK> Well, Alaric has guessed that it maybe might have been Se, but we saw no actual evidence of that.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:46:13 PM] <Evie> We had someone new who came after hearing the reading? Cool! I hope he returns!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:46:48 PM] <Jerusha> Interesting that Se would be there
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:46:50 PM] <jemler> in the Priesting of Arilan, it was a boyish voice.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:47:10 PM] <Shiral> Se might have disguised his voice
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:47:17 PM] <KK> Se could have made one of the young novices shot it out, eh?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:47:22 PM] <jemler> Se was probably keeping an eye on Alyce's son.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:47:24 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:47:59 PM] <Jerusha> Bit risky for the novice, though
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:48:06 PM] <Shiral> Both eyes, I should think in that crowd
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:48:06 PM] <Dennis> Was that the whole scene you read? Jorian's burning?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:48:15 PM] <Dennis> O
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:48:33 PM] <jemler> i looked thru my logs to find the guys name.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:48:46 PM] <Dennis> That sounded sort of demanding. Sorry, KK.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:49:02 PM] <Evie> The scenes leading up to it also. Brion got sort of arm-twisted into allowing Alaric to attend the execution
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:49:03 PM] <KK> Could have thrown his voice, like a ventriloquist, so that no one could trace it?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:49:33 PM] <The_Bee> arm-twisted by Loris?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:49:35 PM] <Jerusha> Hard to arm-twist a king, I would think
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:49:40 PM] <Shiral> Who did the twisting?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:49:47 PM] <Jerusha> Depending on who was twistin
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:49:47 PM] <Dennis> DeNore, right?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:49:51 PM] <Jerusha> twisting
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:50:00 PM] <Evie> Not really, if you throw some big words like Excommunication and Interdict at him.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:50:10 PM] <KK> Donal was arm-twisted, verbally of course....
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:50:32 PM] <Jerusha> And had to submit to a whipping. (Grr)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:50:33 PM] <Shiral> Talk about ventriloquism,...
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:50:35 PM] <DesertRose> It can be done, sadly.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:50:37 PM] <Dennis> Even Kelson was arm-twisted, into marrying Sidana if nothing else.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:50:38 PM] <Evie> Speaking of kings, KK, our current King (for 6 more days) looks like a young Haldane. :D
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:50:49 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:50:57 PM] <jemler> yrs, like that took a lot of effort! :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:50:58 PM] <DesertRose> Our new one looks like Nigel. :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:51:03 PM] <Jerusha> Does he have a Morgan?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:51:07 PM] <Evie> I was admiring his lovely Norman garb at court yesterday and got him to pose for a photo so I can try to copy it in 1:6 scale
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:51:12 PM] <jemler> yes, sorry
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:51:31 PM] <Shiral> Kings don't always get their own way, it's true
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:51:45 PM] <Dennis> So his name is Norman or he dresses up like someone named Norman, Evie?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:51:46 PM] <KK> Really, Evie? Would love to see a picture.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:51:48 PM] <Jerusha> Sometimes that is a good thing
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:52:33 PM] <The_Bee> like when Imre was king
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:52:37 PM] <Shiral> Depending on the King, yes it is.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:53:03 PM] <Evie> Here, KK. This outfit, but it's spiffier when seen full length, since a lot of the detailed embroidery is at the hem: http://www.lineage.meridies.org/images/crown20140405adhemar.jpg
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:53:23 PM] <Aerlys> Sorry, guys, Im a little distracted. DH just brought in burgers, and DS1 is trying to remove a virus from his laptop. (So glad I have a Mac!)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:53:40 PM] <Dennis> He looks sort of like the actor who played Stephen in the Cadael adaptions with Derek Jacobi.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:53:53 PM] <DesertRose> He is quite cute, Evie.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:54:03 PM] <Shiral> Yes, he could fit into the Haldane family tree
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:54:04 PM] <KK> He is cute.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:54:12 PM] <The_Bee> Isn't Kelson clean-shaaven? Brion maybe
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:54:13 PM] <KK> Nice costumes on both.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:54:36 PM] <Evie> Wait, here's a better photo of the full outfits: http://www.kingdom.meridies.org/royalty%20images/AnS_royalty.jpg
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:54:37 PM] <Shiral> A 21 year old can't grow the lushest beard, yet
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:54:56 PM] <Shiral> But maybe Kelson will grow one later
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:55:00 PM] <DesertRose> Nice.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:55:20 PM] <Jerusha> Very nice
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:55:22 PM] <jemler> Trimaris?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:55:24 PM] <The_Bee> only if Araxie approves
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:55:33 PM] <DesertRose> That's me, jemler. Evie's in Meridies.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:55:34 PM] <Shiral> Nice outfits, the Queen's garb is nice, too
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:55:40 PM] <KK> I think most young men at least try the beard/mustache route, if only to see if they can do it, right, guys?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:55:47 PM] <Evie> Right after his Coronation, someone made a set of "paper dolls" (but more like those Colorforms dolls with the vinyl clothing that sticks on without the side tabs) of him and his Queen. They were really cute.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:56:10 PM] <The_Bee> My brother's worn one since his younger daughter was born in 1966.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:56:28 PM] <Evie> My son tried growing out his beard for a week or two last year, but his girlfriend hated it, so it didn't last long
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:56:46 PM] <Shiral> A well-kept beard can look very nice
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:57:08 PM] <Shiral> I think my dad looked better with a beard than he does without
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:57:11 PM] <KK> Scott has always had a mustache, but a beard comes and goes. That looks good, too--rather like Col. Saunders, these days.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:57:28 PM] <Evie> Our king is 24, I think, so maybe by the time Kelson gets to 24 or 25, he'll make a try at facial hair.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:57:37 PM] <Jerusha> DS3 has a beard
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:57:44 PM] <Shiral> if you kept chickens, that would rather upset them, I think KK. =o)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:57:49 PM] <Dennis> I did. It looks hilariously awful.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:58:06 PM] <jemler> in tkj, kelson preferred to be clean shaven.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:58:21 PM] <Shiral> True, but he might change his mind
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:58:31 PM] <Evie> I'm told DH's first attempt at a beard, when he was just 19, looked like a chin fungus But it came in nicely when he was 26.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:58:34 PM] <Dennis> And my fiance has said she prefers me clean shaven, so I'll have to find other ways to embarrass myself. :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:58:38 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:58:56 PM] <The_Bee> and in a fanfic (Jasta's IIRC) Araxie liked her Haldane clean-shaven.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:59:01 PM] <jemler> try a mohawk! :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:59:02 PM] <DesertRose> :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:59:14 PM] <KK> She might not object to a mustache.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:59:17 PM] <Evie> In TKJ, Kelson was only 17 or so, though. Clean shaven was probably the best look for him at that age.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:59:26 PM] <Shiral> Probably
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:59:28 PM] <Evie> Very few 17 year olds can grow a decent beard
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:59:33 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, young men THAT young can't usually grow decent facial hair.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:59:34 PM] <KK> Very true.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [07:59:39 PM] <Shiral> When does Brion start growing his beard?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:00:28 PM] <KK> Well, he doesn't have one by the end of TKD.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:00:29 PM] <Dennis> I figured talking would be enough. :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:00:53 PM] <Shiral> A later life decision, then
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:00:53 PM] <Dennis> And Kelson is still clean shaven at the end of KKB, right? Conall had a moustance, though.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:00:57 PM] <Dennis> er, moustache
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:01:03 PM] <Aerlys> that usually does it for me, dnis
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:01:13 PM] <Aerlys> typing, too
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:01:30 PM] <KK> I'm sure Kelson will experiment, as will brion.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:01:38 PM] <Evie> One of the folks at last night's event was admiring Dhugal's facial hair. "Oh look, she's dressed him in period clothes, and he even has a nice five o'clock shadow!" :D
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:01:44 PM] <jemler> so dis dhugal
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:01:44 PM] <Shiral> Loving a King in the early stages of beard growth would be a prickly business
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:01:47 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:02:28 PM] <The_Bee> What colors is the MacArdry tartan?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:02:59 PM] <Evie> gold, black, and gray, IIRC, although I've got him in gold and rust satin instead
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:03:31 PM] <Evie> Left over from a friend's project. Very lovely slubbed silk scraps.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:03:43 PM] <DesertRose> Oh wow.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:03:48 PM] <Shiral> Suitable for a Duke
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:03:50 PM] <Evie> Worn over a black silk undershirt
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:03:55 PM] <Laurna> nice
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:04:07 PM] <Evie> though he's wearing tartan trews under it. Not Transha colors, though
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:04:09 PM] <The_Bee> any pics?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:04:24 PM] <Evie> Not McLain either. A burgundy/green/gold sett
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:04:33 PM] <Evie> I took some but they're not uploaded yet
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:04:35 PM] <Shiral> Better Tartan than polka dots
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:04:41 PM] <Evie> I just got home minutes before entering chat
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:05:00 PM] <The_Bee> We weren't sure you'd make it.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:05:06 PM] <jemler> well, with polka dots you could play connect the dots! :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:05:10 PM] <Evie> I wasn't either. :(
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:05:14 PM] <Shiral> Did you remember to shut off the car ignition?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:05:17 PM] <Shiral> =o)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:05:26 PM] <Evie> LOL! Barely, Shiral. ;)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:05:29 PM] <DesertRose> :D
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:05:49 PM] <Shiral> SHe's home! Quick! Boot up the computer then stand out of the way!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:05:57 PM] <KK> Have I described MacArdry tartan? In any cse, I should imagine they'd mostly wear a hunting sett, with lots of brown and grey and black and heathery colors. Also, remember that, at least in our world, regular tartans are very much a Victorian thing. Earlier, I think they mostly wore what the women wove.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:05:57 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:06:22 PM] <Shiral> I think the only mention of specific colors is gray black and yellow, KK
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:06:24 PM] <Evie> You described MacArdry colors in one of the earlier Dhugal scenes.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:06:33 PM] <Shiral> And McLain is Dark green black and white
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:06:49 PM] <jemler> io read wove as wore. picture of duncan in his mothers dress...
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:06:59 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:07:08 PM] <The_Bee> And Noel MacLeod in the Adept series wears the Loud macLeod.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:07:11 PM] <Shiral> Cross dressing with dignity...
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:07:34 PM] <DesertRose> Well, the Adept series is set in more-or-less modern times, so that's a whole different ballgame.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:07:58 PM] <jemler> duncan to kevin "can you help me lace up this bodice"?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:08:26 PM] <Evie> I did manage to find one decent looking mini-plaid in the yellow/black/gray palette, but haven't made anything with it yet
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:08:29 PM] <Shiral> Gee Kevin, this is a lovely shade of blue on you....
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:08:32 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:08:39 PM] <KK> Yep. And Loud MacLeod is the one with bright yellow and black and the thin like of red (I think). Sometimes the yellow is really YELLOW.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:09:34 PM] <DesertRose> Well, they call it Loud for a reason. :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:09:45 PM] <Shiral> Interesting to look like a Scottish Canary
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:09:59 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:10:16 PM] <jemler> scots invented golf, and golfers wear some of the loudest clothes on the planet. go figure.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:10:22 PM] <Laurna> Imagining myself asking Dhugal, "Can you lace up my bodice, Your Grace?"
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:10:28 PM] <Evie> But I'm quite willing to exercise the "artistic license" and figure out a hunting sett for MacArdry, since most yellow plaids I've found are either garish or too mustardy for my tastes. I don't want Dhugal to look like he's being served on the side of a pork dish.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:10:36 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:10:47 PM] <Shiral> Probably wise, yes
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:10:57 PM] <Shiral> The world needs more McLains!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:11:23 PM] <Jerusha> A wife might be nice, first
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:11:24 PM] <Laurna> InDeed!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:11:47 PM] <Shiral> I'm sure there are a lot of young ladies at court who would agree!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:11:49 PM] <Evie> I figure Dhugal would need to wear McLain colors more these days anyway, but once I create Jass, he'll appreciate not looking like an explosion in a condiment factory
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:11:50 PM] <Dennis> Was it the princess of Jaca that Dhugal had his eye on?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:12:01 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, little illegitimate McLains, probably NOT a good idea.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:12:13 PM] <KK> MacMillans have a dress tartan that's red and gold, and sometimes it comes out Very Bright, rather like the catsup and mustard jars went to war.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:12:17 PM] <Shiral> Duncan wouldn't appreciate it, either
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:12:23 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, KK.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:12:27 PM] <KK> It can be very pretty in the more muted colors, though.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:12:31 PM] <Evie> His father might have a few words to say to Dhugal on the topic of illegitimate McLains
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:12:38 PM] <DesertRose> Just a few, yes.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:12:41 PM] <Shiral> Several, in fact
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:12:49 PM] <Jerusha> As might Kelson
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:13:03 PM] <Shiral> "Take a cold bath, and keep your kilt belted, lad!"
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:13:15 PM] <KK> Alaric and LLion have a conversation about the need for discretion.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:13:19 PM] <DesertRose> Kelson would be like, "WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!?!"
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:13:21 PM] <Evie> "Belting doesn't help, Father; it flips up."
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:13:28 PM] <jemler> yra shiral. likr\e THAT would help! :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:13:35 PM] <Dennis> Malcolm and Donal weren't so worried. :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:13:38 PM] <Laurna> lol My thoughts exactly Evie
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:13:56 PM] <Jerusha> Tee hee
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:13:56 PM] <Aerlys> chastity belts for kilted men?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:14:05 PM] <DesertRose> Heehee.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:14:11 PM] <jemler> Duncan to Dhugal, "So she noticed"!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:14:24 PM] <Shiral> I can't imagine Dhugal submitting to a chastity belt
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:14:36 PM] <Evie> Who would be the key keeper, though? "Father, please have mercy; my bladder's full! Give me the key already!"
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:14:38 PM] <KK> Fortunately (or unfortunately), kilts are designed for--er--easy access, as are ladies' gowns with little underneath in the way of undergarments.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:14:53 PM] <DesertRose> I should think Dhugal would FAR rather be married than wear a chastity belt.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:15:07 PM] <Shiral> Better to marry than to er...Lock
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:15:11 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:15:32 PM] <Evie> This puts a new spin on the term "being under lockdown"
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:15:37 PM] <jemler> for men it's a leaded weight rather than a belt.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:15:38 PM] <Aerlys> goes beyond just arm-twisting
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:15:39 PM] <DesertRose> No kidding. :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:15:41 PM] <Evie> Yes, marriage would be preferable
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:15:55 PM] <Shiral> As long as it's to the right lass
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:16:14 PM] <DesertRose> Of course. Dhugal is a good lad and he deserves a good marriage.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:16:26 PM] <Evie> True. If KK won't marry him off, it won't be for lack of me throwing Barbies at him. ;)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:16:30 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:16:32 PM] <Shiral> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:16:44 PM] <Laurna> Oh If I were a thousand years younger!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:17:00 PM] <Shiral> Hope he'll get a wife with a sense of humor and fun
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:17:12 PM] <jemler> you'd be about 200 years before dhugals time.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:17:18 PM] <KK> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:17:20 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, he needs a fun lass lest he be bored.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:17:22 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:17:41 PM] <Evie> A Deryni wife. He's pretty adamant about that after sharing rapport with Kelson in QFSK
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:17:42 PM] <Shiral> Fun pretty Deryni lass.....of suitable social status
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:18:10 PM] <Jerusha> There's a web site for that....
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:18:11 PM] <Evie> Which, btw, sounds unintentionally humorous in the audiobook version. :D
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:18:17 PM] <Laurna> Rhys I would be in Rhys's time I could handle that. Step aside Evaine I'm here.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:18:21 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:18:26 PM] <jemler> as long as her sense of humor is not looking under his kilt and saying "where is it"?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:18:35 PM] <DesertRose> Kilt-check! :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:18:35 PM] <Shiral> I wouldn't want to do battle with Evaine, =o)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:18:50 PM] <DesertRose> Me neither. That woman knows entirely too much.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:18:53 PM] <The_Bee> Dhugal may need to look outside Gwynedd.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:19:24 PM] <Shiral> Now that Kelson and Rory are both married, Dhugal's really quite a Catch
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:19:28 PM] <DesertRose> Yup.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:19:28 PM] <Laurna> Oh dear you are right.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:19:35 PM] <Evie> I have a daughter the right age to marry off to Dhugal. I'd end up with Duncan as in in-law. Sort of. :D
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:19:48 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:19:51 PM] <jemler> true. deryni women of sufficient lineage are rarer in gwynedd that honest politians and virgin brides are here! :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:19:57 PM] <Dennis> A Dunc-in-law?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:20:12 PM] <Jerusha> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:20:13 PM] * DesertRose smacks jemler with a trout.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:20:18 PM] * Shiral pictures Dunan in one of those Dunk Tank seats...
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:20:33 PM] * DesertRose then hits Dennis with the same trout on the backhand. :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:20:36 PM] <Jerusha> And Evie buys all the tickets
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:20:45 PM] <jemler> just a little white truth!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:21:05 PM] * Dennis looks innocent. "What?"
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:21:39 PM] <DesertRose> We probably ought to do a dunk tank at Trimarian summer events. The problem I can see is that people would WANT to get dunked because it's so godawful hot here.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:21:42 PM] <Dennis> Let me guess, DR, it was just for the halibut?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:21:49 PM] <Evie> "Bishop Duncan, why does that woman keep visiting your study?" "Oh, Archbishop Cardiel, don't worry, she's my son's mother-in-law. She's just on a family visit."
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:21:55 PM] * DesertRose shakes her head.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:22:21 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:22:22 PM] <Evie> So you sell tickets for people who wish to be dunked! Problem solved.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:22:33 PM] * jemler hears a rattling noise :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:22:36 PM] <Shiral> "What's this I hear about her making all your clothes and styling your hair, my son?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:22:42 PM] <DesertRose> Yup.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:23:01 PM] <Jerusha> And she has an extra head tucked under her arm
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:23:05 PM] <Dennis> It's nothing, Your Grace. At least compared to what she did to my head.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:23:18 PM] <Evie> "Well, she DID arrange for a miracle for me, so once my new head was on, I let her shampoo it."
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:23:31 PM] <jemler> how do you like your head
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:23:36 PM] <Shiral> Well, that explains a few of your recent memory lapses, Duncan...
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:23:39 PM] <Jerusha> But what about those blond streaks?
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:23:41 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:23:43 PM] <Evie> "It suits me better than the headless look"
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:24:04 PM] <Jerusha> The ultimate tonsure
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:24:07 PM] <DesertRose> Yikes.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:24:11 PM] <Aerlys> oopz
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:24:19 PM] <Evie> The sad thing is that I was all ready to do a photo shoot in KK's hotel room when I discovered Duncan's head was missing
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:24:40 PM] <Aerlys> that would put a damper on things
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:24:41 PM] <Evie> It's really hard to continue a series of "Alaric and Duncan go sightseeing" photos when one of your two heroes is suddenly headless
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:24:45 PM] <KK> She was amazingly calm about the whole thing.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:24:48 PM] <Shiral> It's very hard to celbrate Mass while headless, your grace. Not to mention dangerous, with the thurifer, and all...
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:24:59 PM] <KK> lol
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:25:18 PM] <Aerlys> short sermon
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:25:21 PM] <DesertRose> Indeed.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:25:30 PM] <jemler> shorter bishop
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:25:35 PM] <Aerlys> lol
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:25:38 PM] <Shiral> Ite Missa Est...
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:25:40 PM] <Evie> The only reason I was calm was that I was 99% sure I had a spare head at home, and 100% sure I still had his old head, which would have been usable until I could find one in better condition.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:25:44 PM] <Laurna> I envisioned crying
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:25:46 PM] <The_Bee> When the preacher's cut short, so is the sermon.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:25:53 PM] <DesertRose> :)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:26:16 PM] <Evie> No crying on the outside, but a lot of psychic screaming. :D
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:26:37 PM] <DesertRose> Probably broke Alaric's eardrums with the psychic screaming.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:26:39 PM] <KK> But she immediately remembered that she really did have 2 heads at home.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:26:47 PM] <Laurna> All Deyrni cover your ears.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:26:50 PM] <Shiral> Some people leave their hearts in San Francisco, but Duncan left his head in Atlanta
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:26:58 PM] <Aerlys> I'm imagining Evie getting postcards in the mail from Duncan's head as he travels abroad...
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:27:01 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:27:14 PM] <jemler> wish my body was here!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:27:23 PM] <Evie> But if it had been Alaric, I probably wouldn't have handled that as well. I don't have a replacement for him, and his price has gone up quite a bit since I got him. He was a real steal.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:27:23 PM] <DesertRose> :P
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:27:32 PM] <DesertRose> Oh dear.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:27:35 PM] <Shiral> I'm writing this with my pen in my teeth...That's why it's illegible...
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:27:38 PM] <Jerusha> No, not Alaric!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:27:39 PM] <jemler> i'm heading to disneyland next
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:27:41 PM] <Evie> LOL Aerlys
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:28:16 PM] <Jerusha> Unfortunately, I must go. Have a great week everyone!
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:28:23 PM] <Shiral> Bye, Jerusha
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:28:24 PM] <Evie> at least I know what Ken to shop for if Alaric goes missing. I have no idea what some of my dolls were originally.
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:28:24 PM] <jemler> nite jerusha
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:28:25 PM] <The_Bee> bye Jerusha
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:28:33 PM] Quit Jerusha has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:28:34 PM] <Laurna> Nite Jerusha
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:28:34 PM] <Evie> Bye
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:28:46 PM] <Shiral> Alaric, you really mustn't lose your head...."

[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:29:22 PM] <KK> Well, I think I'd better go too. I've been holding my left eye closed all this time, and it's tired. (But at least the right eye could see the screen.)
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:29:23 PM] <Evie> The reason Alaric isn't on a better body yet is that I'm scared to cut off his neck joint and do the mods that would be necessary to put him on an action figure body

[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:30:20 PM] <Laurna> Good night KK
[Sunday, September 07, 2014] [08:30:34 PM] <KK> Yep, I'll report back next week. The eye itself is doing just fine. It's just going to be a bore, waiting until we can get the double vision sorted out.
"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.)
