« on: November 22, 2015, 07:00:03 pm »
Nov 22 19:03:44 *   KK has joined
Nov 22 19:03:46 <DesertRose>   Hi KK!
Nov 22 19:03:47 <Evie>   Hi KK
Nov 22 19:03:47 <jemler>   KK
Nov 22 19:03:57 <KK>   Hi, all.
Nov 22 19:04:03 <jemler>   happy thanksgiving, KK\
Nov 22 19:04:11 <DesertRose>   Glad you came to see us!
Nov 22 19:04:17 <KK>   Looking forward to it.
Nov 22 19:04:28 <Evie>   Yes, happy Thanksgiving early, since I may be on the road next Sunday and therefore might not be able to make it to chat
Nov 22 19:04:55 <KK>   I should be here, at this point.
Nov 22 19:05:07 <DesertRose>   I may not make next chat either, because I'm hosting a workday for decorations for an upcoming SCA event at my house next week, but I will probably log in and log the chat even if I don't participate.
Nov 22 19:05:19 <DesertRose>   Assuming I remember to log in, LOL.  :)
Nov 22 19:05:24 <Evie>   That tends to be more important than me being here, since it is KK chat after all.  ;-)
Nov 22 19:05:28 *   Shiral ( has joined
Nov 22 19:05:31 <DesertRose>   Hi Shiral.
Nov 22 19:05:31 <jemler>   i can log it, too
Nov 22 19:05:35 <Shiral>   Hello all
Nov 22 19:05:36 <jemler>   hi shiral
Nov 22 19:05:37 <Evie>   Hi Shiral
Nov 22 19:05:45 <KK>   Hi, Shiral.
Nov 22 19:05:51 <DesertRose>   Bynw is also usually logging so it'll get posted one way or another. :)
Nov 22 19:05:56 *   Shiral appears in chat with a champagne cork "pop!"
Nov 22 19:05:57 *   DomMelchior ( has joined
Nov 22 19:06:01 <DesertRose>   Hi DomMelchior.
Nov 22 19:06:02 *   mib_5rcj32 ( has joined
Nov 22 19:06:02 <jemler>   hi dom
Nov 22 19:06:03 <Evie>   Hi Dom
Nov 22 19:06:05 <DesertRose>   Hi Bee.
Nov 22 19:06:10 <jemler>   hi bee
Nov 22 19:06:13 <Shiral>   Hello Dom, Hello KK, hello Bee
Nov 22 19:06:14 <DomMelchior>   Hello everyone
Nov 22 19:06:14 <mib_5rcj32>   Hi DR and all
Nov 22 19:06:15 <KK>   Hi, DomMelchior.
Nov 22 19:06:22 *   mib_5rcj32 is now known as The_Bee
Nov 22 19:06:32 <Evie>   I only remember one time when KK was here but the chat wasn't logged, but that was years ago.
Nov 22 19:06:59 <KK>   Evie, ready for retirement?
Nov 22 19:07:10 <Evie>   Yes!  Only 8 more workdays
Nov 22 19:07:17 *   Shiral snaps fingers and a tea table appears
Nov 22 19:07:25 <Evie>   Hang on, I have something to show you, speaking of retirement....
Nov 22 19:07:29 <DomMelchior>   Congrats Evie
Nov 22 19:07:37 <KK>   Any progress this week with the Littles?
Nov 22 19:08:21 <Evie>   I had a helper at work Friday helping me pack some personal stuff.  Start with this photo and move to the right:
Nov 22 19:09:03 *   DesertRose adds snickerdoodles to the tea table.
Nov 22 19:09:17 <KK>   Whoops, took me to a Yahoo page.  What did I do wrong?
Nov 22 19:09:18 <jemler>   it wants me to set up an account.
Nov 22 19:09:19 <Evie>   Not with the Mini-Deryni, but my church is doing Angel Tree this Christmas, and the little girl I drew wants a Barbie doll, so I've found an easy to dress basic model and am making some clothing for it
Nov 22 19:09:32 *   The_Bee adds scones with butter and honey.
Nov 22 19:09:35 <Evie>   Clothes that are toddler friendly, since the child is only two
Nov 22 19:09:49 <Evie>   It didn't take you to my Flickr photo?
Nov 22 19:09:56 <DesertRose>   Flickr is owned by Yahoo, so that may be what happened there.
Nov 22 19:09:58 <jemler>   nope.
Nov 22 19:10:02 <KK>   Nope.
Nov 22 19:10:25 <The_Bee>   nope. it old me to sign into yahoo.
Nov 22 19:10:37 <Evie>   OK, try this one:
Nov 22 19:10:56 <Shiral>   Is Nigel in the Coffee Bean Chapel?? =o)
Nov 22 19:11:11 <Evie>   LOL!  That's one way to look at it
Nov 22 19:11:33 <Evie>   DH used to call the coffee station at our old church the Caffeine Ministry
Nov 22 19:11:38 <DesertRose>   LOL
Nov 22 19:11:39 <jemler>   is that Kelson Little?
Nov 22 19:11:45 <Evie>   No, that's Nigel
Nov 22 19:11:48 <Shiral>   At this point, he's an older daddy. He might need a little caffeine to keep up with his Royal Offspring
Nov 22 19:12:06 <KK>   LOL, love it.  He's being quite helpful, isn't he?  I suspect your work colleagues are going to miss him--and you!
Nov 22 19:12:24 <DesertRose>   Especially given that Meraude was probably pregnant at the end of KKB, he's been a busy boy!
Nov 22 19:12:28 *   healer (Mibbit@78A221.77DD4E.523F89.BCCF66) has joined
Nov 22 19:12:38 <Evie>   Yes, especially since i doubt they'll have someone hired to replace me before i leave, so they'll find out how much I do!
Nov 22 19:12:42 <DesertRose>   Hi healer.
Nov 22 19:12:42 <healer>   hi all
Nov 22 19:12:54 <Evie>   hi healer
Nov 22 19:12:54 <Shiral>   He looks a little like the Febreeze might be giving him a headache
Nov 22 19:13:00 <Shiral>   Hi Healer
Nov 22 19:13:01 <DomMelchior>   Hi Healer
Nov 22 19:13:29 <jemler>   hi healer
Nov 22 19:13:39 <KK>   Hi, healer.
Nov 22 19:13:40 <Evie>   A concentrated dose in the face might do that, Shiral, if he's not careful
Nov 22 19:14:33 <healer>   i know it can give me a feeling of nausia
Nov 22 19:14:41 <KK>   Last night I found myself thinking about your flamingo costume of last year, and laughing.  Yeah, they'll miss you.
Nov 22 19:14:45 <Shiral>   He's never encountered it before. He's probably thinking it's like a stronger form of incense
Nov 22 19:14:55 <DesertRose>   KK, did you see Evie's costume this year?
Nov 22 19:15:09 <Evie>   I recycled that costume by turning it into Bing Bong the Imaginary Friend from the movie Inside Out
Nov 22 19:15:35 *   Jerusha ( has joined
Nov 22 19:15:35 <KK>   No, didn't see it.  But I did love the flamingo.
Nov 22 19:15:41 <Shiral>   Hi Jerusha
Nov 22 19:15:42 <DesertRose>   Hi Jerusha.
Nov 22 19:15:50 <Jerusha>   Hi Everyone!
Nov 22 19:15:52 <healer>   hi j
Nov 22 19:15:56 <jemler>   hi jerusha
Nov 22 19:16:01 <The_Bee>   hi jerusha
Nov 22 19:16:22 <Evie>  Here's Bing Bong
Nov 22 19:16:29 <Evie>   Hi Jerusha
Nov 22 19:16:37 <Jerusha>   Hi Evie
Nov 22 19:16:39 <healer>   hi Jerusha
Nov 22 19:17:17 <Jerusha>   Are you new here, Healer?
Nov 22 19:17:38 <Evie>   And here's what I was trying to replicate, KK:
Nov 22 19:17:52 <healer>   kk have you ever partisipated in a high ritual
Nov 22 19:18:17 <Evie>   Healer's been here a few times, Jerusha
Nov 22 19:18:19 <healer>   some what
Nov 22 19:18:19 <Jerusha>   The flamingo was a masterpiece, Evie
Nov 22 19:18:33 *   Evie takes a deep fluffy bow
Nov 22 19:18:33 <Jerusha>   Welcome, nevertheless
Nov 22 19:18:44 <DesertRose>   LOL @ Evie.
Nov 22 19:18:49 <Jerusha>   On one leg
Nov 22 19:19:13 <KK>   Good take on Bing Bong.  Did you also have the tail?
Nov 22 19:19:14 <Evie>   I used some of the leftover pink tulle to make a skirt for the Barbie i am giving to the Angel Tree child
Nov 22 19:19:19 <Evie>   I did.
Nov 22 19:19:24 <The_Bee>   Bing Bong looks like Horton's cousin.
Nov 22 19:19:30 <jemler>   looks like one of the Banana Splits when i was a kid.
Nov 22 19:19:35 <DesertRose>   LOL @ Bee.
Nov 22 19:19:37 <KK>   Healer, yes.
Nov 22 19:20:00 <KK>   Any pics yet of the Christmas Barbie clothes?
Nov 22 19:20:22 <Evie>   No, I just got her this morning, so all I've had time to make thus far was the tulle overskirt
Nov 22 19:20:37 <Jerusha>   Christmas Barbie?
Nov 22 19:20:55 <Evie>   I'm going to put it over a pink satin slip dress, then use some leftover pink flannel for a nightgown, and maybe one or two other items
Nov 22 19:21:03 <DesertRose>   Evie's church is doing an Angel Tree and the child Evie drew wanted a Barbie, so Evie got one and is making her some clothes to go with it.
Nov 22 19:21:14 <Jerusha>   Nice!
Nov 22 19:21:28 <KK>   That's going to be one happy little girl.
Nov 22 19:21:33 <Jerusha>   Definitely
Nov 22 19:21:37 <Evie>   I drew a little girl off our Angel Tree at church, and she wants a Barbie for Christmas, so I'm making clothing to go with the Barbie, but it all has to be toddler friendly, so I'm trying to avoid snaps and hooks
Nov 22 19:21:53 <jemler>   velcro?
Nov 22 19:22:03 <DesertRose>   Or elastic or things which require no closure at all.
Nov 22 19:22:14 <DesertRose>   And velcro on a Barbie scale is a colossal pain.
Nov 22 19:22:15 <Evie>   going more with simple clothes that have elastic waists and are either loose fitting or maybe just use Velcro
Nov 22 19:22:20 <DesertRose>   At least IMO.
Nov 22 19:22:27 <Evie>   yes, which is why I don't usually use Velcro
Nov 22 19:22:36 <Evie>   unless you can find the doll weight sort, which is hard to find
Nov 22 19:22:47 <DesertRose>   Yes.  It's like trying to find hook-and-eye tape anymore.
Nov 22 19:22:49 <Evie>   and I'm not particularly fond even of that
Nov 22 19:23:00 <DesertRose>   Used to be you could find that easily, and now it's like the quest for the holy grail.
Nov 22 19:23:17 <Evie>   Yes, I might use that if I could find it
Nov 22 19:23:22 <Evie>   try looking online
Nov 22 19:23:33 <KK>   I don't think I've ever seen doll-weight velcro other than on ready-made doll clothes.  Can probably find it on the internet, though.
Nov 22 19:23:33 <healer>   i would like to have a closeing everything that ive done doesen't work for me
Nov 22 19:23:40 <The_Bee>   I wonder if hook-and-eye would be available in Amish country?
Nov 22 19:23:46 <Evie>   yes, it's available online, KK
Nov 22 19:23:46 <DesertRose>   Yes, that's about the only way to get it.  Most brick-and-mortar stores don't carry it.
Nov 22 19:24:16 <KK>   I might have some odd bits of hook-and-eye tape.  I'll try to remember to look in my stash.
Nov 22 19:24:29 <DesertRose>   Well, you can buy loose hooks and eyes easily, but the tape is easier to work with and easier to get the spacing right.
Nov 22 19:24:59 <Evie>   You'd think something that handy would be easier to find
Nov 22 19:25:01 <DesertRose>   I have loads of loose hooks and eyes (and loose snaps too) but finding the tape is a pain.
Nov 22 19:25:04 <DesertRose>   You would think.
Nov 22 19:25:53 <DesertRose>   Which reminds me, I need to go buy a long upholstery zipper to repair a case for a pop-up pavilion that I promised I'd do back early in October and haven't gotten around to doing yet.  :P
Nov 22 19:26:03 <Evie>   I don't want to use fasteners on thiese items since they might be choking hazards to a small child, so I may just get some Dollar Tree socks and turn them into knit skirts and sweaters
Nov 22 19:26:30 <DesertRose>   Right, that makes sense when making doll clothes to be used by a little one.  :)
Nov 22 19:26:42 <Jerusha>   Pop up pavilion?  You cast a spell an "poor" there it is?
Nov 22 19:26:52 <healer>   back to work for me have a good night all
Nov 22 19:26:52 <DesertRose>   Almost.  :)
Nov 22 19:26:56 <DesertRose>   Night, healer.
Nov 22 19:27:02 <Evie>   goodnight Healer
Nov 22 19:27:07 <DomMelchior>   g'night, healer
Nov 22 19:27:08 <Jerusha>   Night healer! Glad you came
Nov 22 19:27:12 <jemler>   nite healer. happy thanksgiving
Nov 22 19:27:17 <The_Bee>   bye healer. glad you came
Nov 22 19:27:37 <Shiral>   Bye, Healer
Nov 22 19:27:39 <KK>   Nighters, Healer.
Nov 22 19:27:49 <healer>   thank you and happy thanksgiving to all of you.
Nov 22 19:27:53 <DesertRose>   Thank you!
Nov 22 19:28:02 *   healer has quit (Quit: ajax IRC Client)
Nov 22 19:28:04 <Jerusha>   Happy Thanksgiving to you as well
Nov 22 19:28:08 <Evie>   goodnight Healer
Nov 22 19:28:17 <Evie>   Gigi completely in way brb
Nov 22 19:28:23 <Evie>   OK, can see again
Nov 22 19:28:27 <DesertRose>   Jerusha, didn't y'all up in Canada do your T'giving last month?
Nov 22 19:28:48 <Evie>   It is cat bath time on my chest, which makes seeing the screen on my lap difficult.
Nov 22 19:28:50 <DesertRose>   I seem to recall that Canadian Thanksgiving is usually in October.
Nov 22 19:28:55 <DesertRose>   LOL, Evie.
Nov 22 19:28:56 <Jerusha>   Yes, we did.  But since I was born and raised in the US, I celebrate both
Nov 22 19:29:12 <DesertRose>   Ah, okay.  That sounds like fun if you're not the one who has to do all the cooking both times!
Nov 22 19:29:19 <Shiral>   Yesterday, I had my sister and both my parents over, and Dmitri was feeling SO brave he even came downstairs and said hello to everyone. But I think that might have been because his tummy clock said "Meal time."
Nov 22 19:29:21 <Evie>   that just gives you twice as much to be thakful for
Nov 22 19:29:38 <jemler>   wow! i hAte to think of your new years resolution!
Nov 22 19:29:39 <Jerusha>   We're going out for dinner on Thanksgiving, which is sort of cheating
Nov 22 19:29:59 <Evie>   thankful even, dratted cats!
Nov 22 19:30:02 <DomMelchior>   I think we should move ours to coincide with the Canadian one.  Honestly, late November is just too close to Christmas!
Nov 22 19:30:15 <KK>   We always go out for Thanksgiving dinner--and I agree on that, DomM.
Nov 22 19:30:16 <DesertRose>   Nah.  There are whole segments on the news about what restaurants are open on Thanksgiving for people who don't want to/can't cook.
Nov 22 19:30:33 <Jerusha>   But then I could only celebrate one!:s
Nov 22 19:30:40 <Shiral>   I  don't know, I kind of like Thanksgiving when it is. =o)
Nov 22 19:30:46 <DesertRose>   Well, I use our Thanksgiving as a marker for when to decorate for Christmas.
Nov 22 19:30:46 <jemler>   right. move thanksgiving closer to halloween. the candy can be dessert!
Nov 22 19:30:58 <DesertRose>   I refuse to decorate for Christmas before black Friday.
Nov 22 19:31:07 <The_Bee>   My church has a thankgiving dinner to which everyone is invited--neighbors, homeless, etc.
Nov 22 19:31:11 <Evie>   I like Thanksgiving when it is, since it means I have a 3 day work week coming up
Nov 22 19:31:20 <DesertRose>   Not that I decorate that much, but I do hang bells on my front door.
Nov 22 19:31:23 <Jerusha>   I have started already, so I actually have time to enjoy it
Nov 22 19:31:24 <Shiral>   My self imposed rule is that no Christmas lights can go up until the Thanksgiving dinner dishes are finished.
Nov 22 19:31:32 <DomMelchior>   We're going out too.  When its just the two of us its so much easier than fixing the whole shebang at home.
Nov 22 19:31:47 <DesertRose>   Yes, when you've a small household, it's not worth doing a whole turkey dinner.
Nov 22 19:31:53 <Jerusha>   Same here, DM
Nov 22 19:32:04 <DesertRose>   I'm going to my mom's house and she's cooking and I will likely help her cook.
Nov 22 19:32:08 <Jerusha>   I only do turkey for Christmas
Nov 22 19:32:13 <DomMelchior>   You'd hate it here, Shiral.  Andy finished putting up Christmas last week
Nov 22 19:32:24 <Shiral>   There will be six of us at my Thanksgiving. My brother is going to spend Thanksgiving with his girlfriend.
Nov 22 19:32:33 <DesertRose>   That's a decent crowd, Shiral.
Nov 22 19:32:47 <DesertRose>   Enough that it's worth cooking, but not so many as to not have leftovers.  :)
Nov 22 19:32:59 <Jerusha>   Leftovers are good, though
Nov 22 19:33:03 <DesertRose>   Yes.
Nov 22 19:33:04 <Shiral>   I like Christmas--but my HOA association has rules about putting up the lights and decorations too early
Nov 22 19:33:09 <Evie>   We'll be in Clarksville for Thanksgiving
Nov 22 19:33:24 <Jerusha>   Are you taking the last train?
Nov 22 19:33:37 <DesertRose>   My complex doesn't much care, but I just personally refuse to decorate for Christmas until AFTER Thanksgiving.
Nov 22 19:33:47 <jemler>   i'll meet you at the station. we can cbe there by 4:30.
Nov 22 19:33:54 <KK>   Leftover stuffing and cranberry sauce (whole-berry kind) are the best leftovers.  And with turkey and gravy.
Nov 22 19:33:55 <Shiral>   That's the whole reason I like Thanksgiving at my place. =o) I'll send everyone home with left overs, but most of it will stay at my place. =o)
Nov 22 19:34:02 *   DesertRose smacks jemler with a trout.
Nov 22 19:34:04 <Jerusha>   And I've made reservation, don't be slow
Nov 22 19:34:04 <Evie>   My MIL is in town this week, but I think she is planning on visiting her friend in Huntsville, and may take DS with her since he doesn't want to go all the way to north Tennessee with us for four days since he's worried about his new cat being all alone
Nov 22 19:34:13 <jemler>   you got it!
Nov 22 19:34:40 <Jerusha>   New cat?
Nov 22 19:34:52 <DesertRose>   Yes, I watched the Monkees show quite regularly when it ran in re-runs on Nickelodeon.
Nov 22 19:34:53 <Evie>   Even the littles won't get to put up their tree until after Thanksgiving. ;-)
Nov 22 19:35:05 <Evie>   Yes, my son got adopted by a Luke look-alike
Nov 22 19:35:15 <Jerusha>   Um, I saw the orginals
Nov 22 19:35:35 <DesertRose>   :)
Nov 22 19:36:04 <Shiral>   I don't think I'd "Hate it" at your place, Dom. =o) But much as I love Christmas, and lights and decorations, I find it all gets a little old for me if it hangs around too long.
Nov 22 19:36:05 <KK>   Yay, new cat!  What's his name?
Nov 22 19:36:11 <Evie>   Mr Butters
Nov 22 19:36:31 <The_Bee>   How did he show up?
Nov 22 19:36:34 <Evie>   Oh, DR!  What was that word you found that means "to hit someone with a fish"?
Nov 22 19:36:37 <KK>   He buttered the cat's paws to keep him from wandering away?
Nov 22 19:36:37 <DesertRose>   Evie, I told my family about the little kid who nicknamed your friend's cat Fat Mean Kitty.
Nov 22 19:36:39 <Shiral>   Does he have a particular affection for butter?
Nov 22 19:36:40 <Jerusha>   Is there a story behind that?
Nov 22 19:36:45 <DesertRose>   cornobble
Nov 22 19:37:06 <Evie>   He started showing up at DS's apartment asking to be let in and fed
Nov 22 19:37:14 <DesertRose>   I found out today that the word "cornobble" means "to strike [someone] with a fish."
Nov 22 19:37:14 <KK>   Awwww.
Nov 22 19:37:27 <DesertRose>   English is weird.  :-D
Nov 22 19:37:31 <Evie>   I'm sure there is, Jerusha, but I don't know what it is
Nov 22 19:37:55 <Shiral>   I would think it would have more to do with hitting someone with an ear of corn....
Nov 22 19:37:56 <KK>   Cornobble.  That's a new one for me--which is cool, because that rarely happens.
Nov 22 19:38:16 <DomMelchior>   Shiral, when we combined households a decade or so ago, we found we had so much xmas stuff that it literally takes days to put it all up, what with the three trees, etc.  So at that point its just not worth it for a short 4 week run. 
Nov 22 19:38:22 <DesertRose>   Yes, it was a new one on me, and I figured as much as the fish fly around here, this audience would appreciate that word, so I'm glad Evie reminded me about it.  :)
Nov 22 19:38:36 <Shiral>   Well that makes sense, Dom
Nov 22 19:38:50 <Evie>   am buried under pestersome cats again
Nov 22 19:38:58 <DesertRose>   Luke or Gigi or both?
Nov 22 19:39:03 <Evie>   Yes, both
Nov 22 19:39:11 <DesertRose>   At least you're warm!
Nov 22 19:39:23 <Shiral>   Francesca has been glued to me lately. I think it has something to do with being cool weather time, again
Nov 22 19:39:26 <jemler>   then i'm being cornobbled to death.
Nov 22 19:39:32 <Jerusha>   Catastrophic, I am sure
Nov 22 19:39:39 <Evie>   when I'm in the recliner, I'm leaning back enough that they can both sit on my chest and/or stomach, between me and the lap desk
Nov 22 19:39:45 <DesertRose>   Yup.  Cornobbling will be jemler's cause of death.  ;)
Nov 22 19:40:19 <Evie>   Can you imagine that on a death certificate or in the obituary?
Nov 22 19:40:23 *   The_Bee imagines two cats fighting over Evie. "She's mine!" "No, she's mine!"
Nov 22 19:40:24 <DesertRose>   LOL
Nov 22 19:40:25 <jemler>   i'll have them type that on my death certificate.
Nov 22 19:40:37 <Shiral>   Dmitri likes to be a furry nightcap, these days.  He lies on my pillow above my head.
Nov 22 19:40:47 <Jerusha>   It will be of-fish-ial
Nov 22 19:40:47 <DesertRose>   Cyrano used to do that to me, sleep in my hair.
Nov 22 19:40:53 <Evie>   RIP Jemler, Cornobbled In Chat
Nov 22 19:41:18 <KK>   Good one, Jerusha.
Nov 22 19:41:18 <DesertRose>   Which was cute because he'd purr himself (and me!) to sleep, but it got annoying because he'd do that milk-tread thing and tangle my hair.
Nov 22 19:41:20 <jemler>   jerusha. i'm the one who is suppossed to make bad puns.
Nov 22 19:41:27 *   DesertRose cornobbles Jerusha.
Nov 22 19:41:40 <Jerusha>   Bows head humbly
Nov 22 19:42:01 <Shiral>   Dmitri definitely does that, DR.
Nov 22 19:42:02 <Jerusha>   Tasty fish, though
Nov 22 19:42:08 <jemler>   the police will say that my death smells fishy.
Nov 22 19:42:26 <DesertRose>   Cyrano got out of the habit as he got older, but until he was about two years old, he slept in my hair.
Nov 22 19:42:46 <DesertRose>   Good thing he decided to go sleep behind my knees, though, because by the time he was two, he weighed a good twelve pounds.
Nov 22 19:43:33 <Shiral>   Francesca will cuddle with me upstairs, but if I'm watching TV in my comfy chair in the livingroom, she won't. Mainly because Dmitri is bigger than she is, and he thinks my lap belongs to HIM downstairs. And he's a bully
Nov 22 19:43:44 <DesertRose>   Aw, poor Cesca.
Nov 22 19:44:17 <Jerusha>   The whippets claim the couch.  I can sit there is there is room.
Nov 22 19:44:27 <DesertRose>   LOL, Jerusha.
Nov 22 19:44:29 <Jerusha>   Not much chance of that
Nov 22 19:44:29 <Shiral>   Yes. Sometimes I'll bet she wonders why I brought this tiresome younger cat into her home and her life.
Nov 22 19:44:42 <KK>   My lap belongs to Gus, who is sleeping on it now.  If Sasha is in my lap when Gus arrives, Gus just pushes him out and takes over.
Nov 22 19:44:53 <Evie>   LOL
Nov 22 19:45:04 <DesertRose>   Sounds like PJ and Merlin.  PJ finally got it through her head that she could smack Merlin if he's too much of a jerk, but I think it's too little too late.
Nov 22 19:45:05 <Shiral>   Oh yeah.  Cats are all about "might makes right."
Nov 22 19:45:12 <Evie>   I'm hoping when I have more free time, I'll get to meet my grandkitty
Nov 22 19:45:28 <DomMelchior>   Rory will whine at one of us, austensibly to get us to let him out. Then he'll jump on the bet and curl up in the warm spot with his head on the pillow.  Damn smart sneaky pharaoh hound!
Nov 22 19:45:29 <Jerusha>   DS's kitty?
Nov 22 19:45:43 <Evie>   Yes. I've seen photos, but haven't met Mr Butters yet
Nov 22 19:45:44 <DesertRose>   LOL, DomMelchior.
Nov 22 19:45:54 <Evie>   LOL, DM
Nov 22 19:45:55 <Jerusha>   It's a sighthound thing/
Nov 22 19:46:12 <DomMelchior>   yes, it is
Nov 22 19:46:40 <DomMelchior>   There's a reason being pestered is known as being "hounded"
Nov 22 19:46:44 <DesertRose>   LOL
Nov 22 19:46:57 <Jerusha>   Absolutely
Nov 22 19:47:06 <DesertRose>   BRB
Nov 22 19:47:54 <Jerusha>   KK, any writing news?
Nov 22 19:48:41 <KK>   Nope.  The days seem to evaporate.  But I did make serious inroads into my desk clutter today.
Nov 22 19:49:00 <Jerusha>   Desk clutter conquering is good
Nov 22 19:49:01 <Shiral>   Decluttering is always good
Nov 22 19:49:24 <Jerusha>   I have a whole house to declutter
Nov 22 19:49:39 <DomMelchior>   Remember though: clutter expands to fill the desk space avialible.
Nov 22 19:49:47 <Jerusha>   Large pockets of DS "I don
Nov 22 19:49:58 <Jerusha>   't have room for it here" clutter
Nov 22 19:50:31 <The_Bee>   I'm always convinced I'll need something the day after I throw it out.
Nov 22 19:50:35 <Shiral>   At which point you could innocently drop hints about a major garage sale at your house,  Jerusha. =o)
Nov 22 19:50:54 <Shiral>   "If it's here, it could go on sale."
Nov 22 19:51:04 <Jerusha>   I could make Black Friday look like a minor affair
Nov 22 19:51:24 <Evie>   I've been asked what I want for a retirement gift, so I said a color inkjet printer/copier/scanner wouldn't go amiss. In addition to being able to print regular stuff on it, I can use it for crafts printies
Nov 22 19:52:01 <Jerusha>   That would be nice, Evie
Nov 22 19:52:28 <Shiral>   Go for broke say "I'd like a 3-d scanner." =o)
Nov 22 19:52:38 <Evie>   One of our most successful garage sales years ago was a Name Your Own Price sale.  As long as it was reasonable, we'd take it.  Saved us having to put prices on everything, and people were surprisingly generous with what they were willing to pay for all that old crap.  :-D
Nov 22 19:53:20 <KK>   Those are on pretty good sales right now.  I saw one exactly like my HP Officejet Pro 8610 on sale at Staples for just under $100 bucks.
Nov 22 19:53:29 <Jerusha>   I have an incredible crop of vintage Barbie stuff, but well played with
Nov 22 19:54:04 <Jerusha>   Was saving it for a daughter, but had three DSs
Nov 22 19:54:07 <Evie>   and toward the end of the sale, a family came by who had lost everything in a fire, so we were able to replace a lot of their stuff with things that didn't sell earlier.  They insisted on paying, but ended up getting a great deal for $20
Nov 22 19:54:19 <The_Bee>   I've avoided getting a printer because ink is so expensive.
Nov 22 19:54:34 <Shiral>   I always find toy collecting a little weird--do they think the dolls  given to children stayed in the boxes all those years?
Nov 22 19:54:44 <DesertRose>   LOL, Shiral.
Nov 22 19:54:57 <Evie>   So what you're saying, Jerusha, is that you have an entire solar full of Deryni ladies in waiting? ;-)
Nov 22 19:54:59 <jemler>   save it for a DGD
Nov 22 19:55:02 <Jerusha>   Doll in boxes are boring.  No adventure, there
Nov 22 19:55:17 <Jerusha>   I have the old
Nov 22 19:55:44 <Evie>   Mine are lucky to make it home in the box. :-D
Nov 22 19:55:46 <Shiral>   And well, kids have this funny way of looking at toys given for Christmas and birthdays as  something they're supposed to play with.
Nov 22 19:55:52 <DesertRose>   Right?
Nov 22 19:55:53 <Jerusha>   "Guenivere gown" somewhere (and I spelled that wrong)
Nov 22 19:55:57 <Evie>   and that's only because I usually need some scissors to unbox them
Nov 22 19:56:02 <KK>   The ink carts are expensive initially, but I find that they last and last.  Of course, I don't do as much printing as I used to, now that manuscripts are sent via e-mail.  But my new HP printer is cheaper per page than my old laser printer.
Nov 22 19:56:30 <DesertRose>   The wonders of modern technology.  :)
Nov 22 19:56:44 <Shiral>   Yeah. I got a new printer last JUne, and haven't had to change the ink yet
Nov 22 19:56:51 <The_Bee>   I pay $0.15  a page at my local library.
Nov 22 19:57:10 <KK>   On that note, gotta run.  Madame Secretary is about to come on.  About on a par with West Wing, but a little softer around the edges.  I like it!
Nov 22 19:57:19 <Shiral>   Bye, KK. Happy Thanksgiving
Nov 22 19:57:24 <KK>   Nighters, all.
Nov 22 19:57:24 <DesertRose>   Okay, night KK.
Nov 22 19:57:28 <DesertRose>   Thanks for coming to see us!
Nov 22 19:57:28 <Jerusha>   Thanks for coming,KK, and have a good week
Nov 22 19:57:40 *   KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
Nov 22 19:57:41 <DomMelchior>   G'night KK
Nov 22 19:57:41 <The_Bee>   nighters, KK!  glad you came and have a good and productive week.
Nov 22 19:57:43 <Shiral>   I gotta get busy and rack up some word count on my Nano novel
Nov 22 19:57:50 <KK>   byeeee.
Nov 22 19:57:52 <jemler>   nite kk
Nov 22 19:57:57 *   KK has quit (Quit: ajax IRC Client)
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
