KK Chat -- 30 October 2016
« on: October 30, 2016, 07:09:36 pm »
Oct 30 19:22:00 *   KK has joined
Oct 30 19:22:02 <DesertRose>   Hi KK!
Oct 30 19:22:04 <Jemler>   hi kk
Oct 30 19:22:04 <The_Bee>   Hi KK
Oct 30 19:22:06 <Jerusha>   Hi KK
Oct 30 19:22:09 <DesertRose>   Not fun, to be sure, Jerusha
Oct 30 19:22:11 <Eyikl>   hi KK
Oct 30 19:22:16 <Shiral>   Hello, KK
Oct 30 19:22:20 <Derynifank>   Hi kk
Oct 30 19:22:21 <DomMelchior>   Greetings KK
Oct 30 19:22:27 <KK>   Whoa, it's a mob tonight!  Sorry I'm late, guys.
Oct 30 19:22:31 <Jemler>   shiral, were you disguised as a Jehovahs Witness?
Oct 30 19:22:36 <DesertRose>   Yes, we mobbed you, KK!
Oct 30 19:22:48 <Shiral>   Oh, good grief, no, Jemler
Oct 30 19:22:58 <Evie>   Back
Oct 30 19:22:59 <DesertRose>   Happy All Hallow's Eve!
Oct 30 19:23:00 <Evie>   Hi KK
Oct 30 19:23:01 <DomMelchior>   We're no mob.  We all left our torches and pitchforks at home.
Oct 30 19:23:07 <Shiral>   I'm good for absolutely nothing but continuing to sleep at 6:30 am!
Oct 30 19:23:21 *   Shiral offers KK some mulled cider
Oct 30 19:23:22 <Jerusha>   jerusha tucks her pitchfork under her computer dest
Oct 30 19:23:30 <Jerusha>   Desk, that is
Oct 30 19:23:30 <DomMelchior>   After all, we'll need them tomorrow night to fight off the monsters
Oct 30 19:23:38 <DesertRose>   We have pumpkin bread and apple butter and other assorted fall yummies.
Oct 30 19:23:40 <DesertRose>   Oh!
Oct 30 19:23:48 *   DesertRose adds spicy apple bread to the table of yum.
Oct 30 19:24:02 <KK>   We don't get monsters where I live, at least not in our neighborhood.
Oct 30 19:24:06 <DesertRose>   It's spicy in the sense of cinnamon and nutmeg, etc.
Oct 30 19:24:29 <KK>   I have Gus on my lap.
Oct 30 19:24:30 <Shiral>   Well, Paddy the gargoyle might pop by, right? =o)
Oct 30 19:24:33 <DesertRose>   Hi Gus!
Oct 30 19:24:35 *   The_Bee adds cream cheese to go with the various breads.
Oct 30 19:24:37 <Eyikl>   hi Gus
Oct 30 19:24:44 <Jerusha>   Hi Gus
Oct 30 19:24:49 <Evie>   Hi, Gus
Oct 30 19:24:53 <The_Bee>   hi gus
Oct 30 19:24:57 <DesertRose>   Carys is napping in the recliner, having grown tired of me moving her out of my desk chair every time I get up to get more tea.
Oct 30 19:25:00 <Shiral>   I just fed the Pygmy Lions, so they're out from under foot or under fingers
Oct 30 19:25:13 <Evie>   And yes, the costume is to wear to work tomorrow, so I wanted to bring it upstairs now rather than be poking around my basement looking for it at o'dark-thirty
Oct 30 19:25:16 <Jerusha>   So what is your costume this year, Evie?
Oct 30 19:25:29 <Jemler>   Evie, did you get my email?
Oct 30 19:25:29 <KK>   Gus spent a fair amount of time this afternoon on my mom's deck, lolling in the sunshine and rolling in pleasure.  I told him to enjoy it while he can.
Oct 30 19:25:32 <Jerusha>   Will the flamingo return?
Oct 30 19:25:58 <Evie>   I'm using the pink tulle fluffy body that I used for my flamingo and BingBong costumes and turning myself into a pink plastic loofah. My headband has giant clear "bubbles" and a rubber ducky on it.
Oct 30 19:26:12 <KK>   I, yes, the flamingo, please.  I think of you every time I see a picture of one.
Oct 30 19:26:14 <Jerusha>   :)
Oct 30 19:26:41 <Evie>   I haven't checked my email today, jemler, but peeking in quickly, I don't see it. When did you send it?
Oct 30 19:27:39 <Evie>   I'm wearing the flamingo body, if that counts, KK.  ;-)
Oct 30 19:28:13 <Jerusha>   And standing on one leg?
Oct 30 19:28:31 <DomMelchior>   With head upside down?
Oct 30 19:28:43 <Evie>   LOL!  I dunno, Jerusha, do plastic bath loofahs stand on one leg?
Oct 30 19:28:56 <Jerusha>   Maybe they float on one let
Oct 30 19:29:01 <Jerusha>   leg, that is
Oct 30 19:29:14 <KK>   As you may have guessed, your flamingo costume made a big impression on a number of people with odd imaginations.
Oct 30 19:29:24 <DesertRose>   LOL
Oct 30 19:29:36 <Jerusha>   Well stated
Oct 30 19:29:46 <Eyikl>   maybe when they're on their last leg, Evie. :)
Oct 30 19:29:55 *   The_Bee is looking forward to seeing a picture of Evie as a loofah.
Oct 30 19:30:05 <Evie>   I don't think standing with my head upside-down will be advisable. Once I upload my headdress photo, you'll see why.
Oct 30 19:30:24 <Evie>   https://www.flickr.com/gp/9573389@N08/2u6639
Oct 30 19:30:57 <Evie>   If I can get someone to take photos tomorrow, I'll upload them
Oct 30 19:31:08 <KK>   Definitely.
Oct 30 19:31:12 <Jerusha>   OK, not a good idea, standing on your head
Oct 30 19:31:34 <Evie>   At this point it's become a personal challenge to see what else I can turn that pink fluffy monstrosity of a dress into.  :-D
Oct 30 19:31:35 <Jerusha>   How did you make the bubbles?
Oct 30 19:31:47 <Evie>   Plastic Christmas ornaments from Dollar Tree
Oct 30 19:32:09 <Jerusha>   Very inventive
Oct 30 19:33:01 <Evie>   They're strung onto the headband, which needed extending with extra elastic anyway so it would fit me.  And the ducky is just perched in place with the bubbles holding it on, though I may add Velcro.
Oct 30 19:33:42 <Evie>   DD looked everywhere trying to find one that size for me, so if I don't use it, she'll kill me.  :-D
Oct 30 19:33:56 <KK>   A very clever idea, spawned by the Flamingo.
Oct 30 19:34:22 <Evie>   I'm running out of ideas of things to be that are pink and fluffy, though!
Oct 30 19:34:24 <The_Bee>   Velcro is a good idea, IMO
Oct 30 19:34:33 <Evie>   If I wear it next year, I might have to be cotton candy
Oct 30 19:34:50 <Jemler>   a pink hostess snowball?
Oct 30 19:35:08 <Eyikl>   a fluffy pink poodle?
Oct 30 19:35:13 <Jerusha>   A pink panther in a tutu?
Oct 30 19:35:30 <Derynifank>   Love the snowball idea
Oct 30 19:35:34 <The_Bee>   a strawberry milkshake?
Oct 30 19:35:47 *   Jemler hums the Pink Panther theme
Oct 30 19:35:52 <Evie>   LOL!  Could be, jemler. I actually have a 1960s or 70s era flight attendant uniform someone got me at an antique store, so I could do a play on the "hostess" part of the name and be a Hostess Snowball.
Oct 30 19:35:58 <DesertRose>   LOL
Oct 30 19:36:08 <DomMelchior>   A bouquet of pink carnations?
Oct 30 19:36:09 <Jerusha>   :)
Oct 30 19:36:14 <DesertRose>   I like the milkshake idea.
Oct 30 19:36:31 <DesertRose>   You could download Kelis' song "Milkshake" to your phone and play it whenever you walk into a room!  :)
Oct 30 19:36:42 <Evie>   LOL
Oct 30 19:37:13 <DesertRose>   Don't mind me; feverish brains come up with weird stuff and I'm a weirdo at the best of times!
Oct 30 19:37:15 <The_Bee>   I wasn't sure if they were called milkshakes or frappes down your way, Evie.
Oct 30 19:37:18 <Evie>   DD would never be seen in public again if her Mom became known as "that lady in the pink fluffy costume walking around to the Milkshake Song"
Oct 30 19:37:20 <Evie>   :-D
Oct 30 19:37:24 <DesertRose>   LOL
Oct 30 19:37:32 <Evie>   We have both, Bee
Oct 30 19:37:57 <Jemler>   if you like pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain...
Oct 30 19:37:58 <Evie>   Though I tend to think of frappes as iced coffee shakes
Oct 30 19:38:11 <The_Bee>   Here frappes used to have ice cream and milkshakes didn't.
Oct 30 19:38:23 <Eyikl>   used to?
Oct 30 19:38:24 <DesertRose>   Yeah, a frappe to me seems like something you'd get at a coffee shop, whereas a milkshake involves ice cream.
Oct 30 19:38:51 <DesertRose>   When my grandmother used to make milkshakes for me when I was little, it was always milk and ice cream.
Oct 30 19:39:03 <Jemler>   now i want a hot fudge sundae...
Oct 30 19:39:21 <Derynifank>   My milkshakes always had ice cream
Oct 30 19:39:23 <The_Bee>   When I was in Providence they were called "cabinets."  no idea why.
Oct 30 19:39:45 <DesertRose>   Actually, my grandmother used what was then called ice milk and is now called low-fat ice cream.
Oct 30 19:39:47 <KK>   Cabinets?  The drink or the shoppe?
Oct 30 19:39:56 <The_Bee>   the drin k
Oct 30 19:40:06 <Evie>   I took one of those online tests once that tried to determine where you lived by what you called different things, and I remember "Cabinet" in that sense showing up in that
Oct 30 19:40:07 <Eyikl>   Maybe so the could make jokes about the President's cabinent.
Oct 30 19:40:11 <KK>   A drink called a cabinet?  What's in it?
Oct 30 19:40:35 <Eyikl>   It's a frappe (milkshake)
Oct 30 19:41:06 <Evie>   It's like pop/soda/coke
Oct 30 19:41:25 <KK>   Why on earth would a milkshake be called a cabinet?
Oct 30 19:41:40 <Evie>   It took me the longest time to get used to "Want a coke?"  "Sure."  "What flavor? We have Sprite, Pepsi, Dr Pepper..."
Oct 30 19:41:46 <Jerusha>   If you shake it, it would be a cabinet shuffle?
Oct 30 19:41:46 <Eyikl>   I thought coke was only coca-cola.
Oct 30 19:42:01 <Shiral>   I always assume a milkshake is milk and ice cream also, DR
Oct 30 19:42:03 <Evie>   Not if you live in the South. It's used generically here for all soft drinks
Oct 30 19:42:27 <DesertRose>   I'm a weird Southerner.  I use Coke for Coca-cola and soda for everything else.
Oct 30 19:42:31 <Evie>   Well, the carbonated soft drinks known elsewhere as sodas or pops, that is.
Oct 30 19:42:45 <DesertRose>   Maybe because I spent part of my childhood in the Southwest?
Oct 30 19:42:52 <Jemler>   where all food is called 'vittles'. even stuff like possum innards.
Oct 30 19:43:03 <Derynifank>   Ice cream witl soda poured over it was an ice cream soda
Oct 30 19:43:09 <Evie>   Me too, but I've only lived here since my teens. I think those language choices tend to get set earlier on.
Oct 30 19:43:16 <DesertRose>   I always called that a float, Derynifank
Oct 30 19:43:25 <Derynifank>   That too
Oct 30 19:43:25 <The_Bee>   I knew a place where soda poured over ice cream was called a cow.  Grape soda for a burple coe, cola for a black cow, root beer for a brown cow, orange soda for an orange cow.
Oct 30 19:43:28 <DesertRose>   Like a root beer float or a Coke float.
Oct 30 19:43:40 <Evie>   LOL, Jemler!  I have never known anyone to actually eat a possom, for all the jokes about it.
Oct 30 19:43:45 <The_Bee>   yes AKA floats
Oct 30 19:44:12 <Evie>   I would have to be starving, and even then the squirrels and rabbits would need to be extinct.  :-D
Oct 30 19:44:12 <DesertRose>   My grandmother (the same one who made milkshakes for me when I was little) had this odd habit of pouring Coke over vanilla ice cream and eating the resulting foam.
Oct 30 19:44:22 <Eyikl>   I think that at home a frappe is different than a float, but I'm not sure how.
Oct 30 19:44:41 <DesertRose>   It was one of the few things we could get her to eat when the chemo had her so food-averse.
Oct 30 19:44:45 <DesertRose>   That, and peanut butter cups.
Oct 30 19:44:55 <The_Bee>   Here in Massachusetts we used to call soda pop "tonic."
Oct 30 19:44:55 <Shiral>   In Italy they pour hot coffee over ice cream, and they're called affogato
Oct 30 19:45:07 <DesertRose>   That sounds pretty appealing, Shiral.
Oct 30 19:45:16 <Shiral>   They're delish, DR
Oct 30 19:45:20 <Evie>   Yum!
Oct 30 19:45:41 <The_Bee>   depends what flavor ice cream, I'd think.
Oct 30 19:45:48 <Shiral>   Vanilla, usually
Oct 30 19:45:55 <DesertRose>   I used to go to this Belgian chocolatier and buy her peanut butter cups to make sure she got good peanut butter cups since that was one of the few foods she could stomach.
Oct 30 19:45:56 <Shiral>   Chocolate might work, too
Oct 30 19:45:57 <KK>   I've just looked up the cabinet drink.  Apparently it involved ice cream and coffee.
Oct 30 19:45:58 <Eyikl>   Bee, was this just called a cow by one store?
Oct 30 19:46:14 <DomMelchior>   If this conversation keeps up I'm going to have to go out to the kitchen and raid the last of Andy's cranberry orange bread pudding.
Oct 30 19:46:21 <KK>   I'll try to paste in the Wiki definition, though it may be too long.
Oct 30 19:46:28 <DesertRose>   The same Belgian chocolatier made chocolate covered strawberries when the local strawberries were in season; YUM!
Oct 30 19:46:32 <Shiral>   I've never heard of cabinets as drinks
Oct 30 19:46:55 <Evie>   I've heard of the (ice cream/soda) cows too, though I've not lived in a part of the US where that was a thing.
Oct 30 19:47:07 <KK>   A coffee cabinet is an ice cream-based beverage found almost exclusively in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts, consisting of coffee ice cream, coffee syrup, and milk. The ingredients are mixed in a drink blender or milkshake blender.[1] In recent years, it has become more difficult to find an authentic cabinet,
Oct 30 19:47:13 <Evie>   But being a Navy brat, a lot of my friends called things by different names than I did.
Oct 30 19:47:14 <The_Bee>   Could be.  It was an island off New Hampshire where various summer programs or retreats are held.  Star Island in the Isles of Shoals.
Oct 30 19:47:15 <Shiral>   In my family, we always called floats floats
Oct 30 19:47:32 <Derynifank>   Heard of drinks in cabinettS but not drinks as cabinets
Oct 30 19:47:40 <DesertRose>   LOL
Oct 30 19:47:45 <Evie>   Oh wow, the coffee cabinet sounds yummy
Oct 30 19:47:50 <DesertRose>   It does sound good!
Oct 30 19:48:00 <KK>   There was more, but that's all that would fit in our space.
Oct 30 19:48:06 <Shiral>   You break a lot of dishes if you try to store them in a liquid cabinet
Oct 30 19:48:15 <DesertRose>   LOL
Oct 30 19:48:25 *   DesertRose lobs a Swedish fish at Shiral.
Oct 30 19:48:32 <Shiral>   Yum, thanks
Oct 30 19:48:43 <Shiral>   Although I tend to call those "Feedish swishes"
Oct 30 19:48:52 <DesertRose>   Spoonerism.
Oct 30 19:48:59 <Evie>   Swedish Fish...the only fish I like besides Goldfish crackers, and I'm not even all that fond of those.
Oct 30 19:49:04 <Shiral>   Exactly
Oct 30 19:49:09 <Derynifank>   Has anyone heard from Revanne?
Oct 30 19:49:12 <DesertRose>   Yes.
Oct 30 19:49:13 <Eyikl>   You wouldn't do much better with a frozen cabinent, Sharial. It would be too small.
Oct 30 19:49:23 <Evie>   She was going to pop in tonight, but got too sleepy to stay up
Oct 30 19:49:29 <DesertRose>   She was going to try to make it to chat tonight since the UK had their time change last night but she got sleepy.
Oct 30 19:49:31 <Shiral>   And it would tend to thaw at room temperature. =o)
Oct 30 19:49:43 <Shiral>   But I think I could bear trying to drink a cabinet
Oct 30 19:50:11 <DesertRose>   I'd never heard of the coffee-ice-cream cabinet but I wonder if my mom ever has.
Oct 30 19:50:12 <Shiral>   Early chat next week, so hopefully Revanne will make it
Oct 30 19:50:23 <DesertRose>   She lived in Connecticut and Vermont for a few years before I was born, so maybe
Oct 30 19:50:27 <Evie>   Yes, that should be much easier for her to make
Oct 30 19:50:37 <DesertRose>   Yes, hopefully re: revanne.
Oct 30 19:50:37 <Jerusha>   And our time change, too
Oct 30 19:50:45 <Evie>   Though when do we have our time change? Hopefully that won't throw her timing off
Oct 30 19:50:51 <DesertRose>   Next week, I think.
Oct 30 19:50:58 <Jerusha>   Yes, next Sunday
Oct 30 19:51:10 <Evie>   OK, so it will still be the same time difference for her as usual
Oct 30 19:51:10 <Derynifank>   Our time change is next week
Oct 30 19:51:12 <KK>   Feedish swishes reminds me of Flink Pamingoes--which ties in with Evie's old costume.  There used to be a nightclub called Pink Flamingoes on the way into Dublin.
Oct 30 19:51:23 <DesertRose>   LOL
Oct 30 19:51:27 <Evie>   LOL
Oct 30 19:51:33 <The_Bee>   Ours fall back at sunday 2 to 1 a.m.
Oct 30 19:51:33 <Jerusha>   :)
Oct 30 19:52:02 <DesertRose>   Or the hamburger restaurant Fuddrucker's, which a friend of mine had to be super careful about pronouncing correctly in front of her younger siblings else face parental wrath for inadvertent obscenity.
Oct 30 19:52:42 <Evie>   We used to have one across town here, but it's been gone for years, sadly
Oct 30 19:52:43 <Jemler>   try saying 'Fudpucker' three times fast.
Oct 30 19:52:54 <DesertRose>   There isn't one here anymore either.
Oct 30 19:52:59 <The_Bee>   Does the UK have daylight savings, KK?
Oct 30 19:53:03 <DesertRose>   They've got them in the Orlando area, though.
Oct 30 19:53:08 <DesertRose>   They call it summer time but yes, Bee.
Oct 30 19:53:19 <DomMelchior>   I think there are a few left
Oct 30 19:53:53 <KK>   Yes, Bee.  That's what just happened in Revanne's neck of the woods.  It used to drive us crazy that their time change came at a different time from the US.
Oct 30 19:53:54 *   DesertRose smacks Jemler with a fish filet sandwich.
Oct 30 19:54:02 <The_Bee>   I never hears of the state using daylight savingsin one place but not in others.
Oct 30 19:54:05 <Jemler>   almost 8pm!
Oct 30 19:54:11 <Derynifank>   They disappeared here but we got a new one about a year ago
Oct 30 19:54:25 <DesertRose>   Some states do.  Indiana I think is one.
Oct 30 19:54:50 <Derynifank>   Fuddruckers I meant
Oct 30 19:54:56 <KK>   I think maybe Arizona doesn't use it.  Somewhere out there.
Oct 30 19:55:06 <DesertRose>   And Arizona doesn't do DST but the reservations do so it's confusing if you're driving through the state and listening to a reservation radio station and they'll say the time and it won't be the time on the car clock.
Oct 30 19:55:26 <The_Bee>   I lived in Michigan for a few years. They didn't observe daylight savings.  Something to do with farming, maybe?
Oct 30 19:55:30 <Evie>   That does sound confusing
Oct 30 19:55:33 <DomMelchior>   I heard something earlier this year about a move to abolish DST here in CA, but i don't know if they made any progress on it.
Oct 30 19:56:13 <The_Bee>   It's hard to get cows to observe time changes.
Oct 30 19:56:15 <DesertRose>   And there's a good bit of land that's technically Arizona but also technically one reservation or another.
Oct 30 19:56:18 <KK>   The bottom line that the days just get shorter in the winter.
Oct 30 19:56:22 <Evie>   Yes, crops and livestock are really lousy at observing daylight savings time. They just go on as always, just one hour "earlier" or "later" as the case may be.
Oct 30 19:56:31 <Eyikl>   Sounds slightly more likely than a state decision to switch to the metric system.
Oct 30 19:57:01 <KK>   Ugh, metric.  We livd with it for 21 years in Ireland, and I still didn't get used to it.
Oct 30 19:57:13 <DesertRose>   From what I hear, Arizona's justification for not observing DST is "we get enough sun already, thanks."
Oct 30 19:57:21 <Evie>   LOL
Oct 30 19:57:39 <The_Bee>   As I understand it, no state has to observe the time change, but those that do observe it must ll change on the same day.
Oct 30 19:57:53 <DesertRose>   That sounds about right, Bee.
Oct 30 19:57:56 <The_Bee>   all
Oct 30 19:57:56 <Jemler>   i thought florida was the sunshine state?
Oct 30 19:58:02 <DesertRose>   Theoretically
Oct 30 19:58:14 <DesertRose>   But central FL is the lightning strike capital of Planet Earth, so you tell me.  :P
Oct 30 19:58:16 <Evie>   Except when it rains. And rains.  And sometimes storms
Oct 30 19:58:16 <KK>   It would wreak havoc on airline schedules if it didn't.
Oct 30 19:58:17 <The_Bee>   between hurricanes
Oct 30 19:58:23 <DomMelchior>   There have been studies that show the so-called energy savings for switching to DST doesn't pan out.  Better to just let the time be the time.
Oct 30 19:58:52 <Jerusha>   I agree with that, DM
Oct 30 19:58:54 <DesertRose>   On one forum, my location is set as "The (HA!) Sunshine State."
Oct 30 19:59:04 <Evie>   LOL!
Oct 30 19:59:08 <DesertRose>   I'm totally with you as well, DomMelchior and Jerusha.
Oct 30 19:59:21 <Jemler>   I'm in the Buckeye State.
Oct 30 19:59:23 <The_Bee>   Wasn't it supposed to give folks daylight to tend the Victory Gardens in WWI?
Oct 30 19:59:24 <KK>   I think school-start times may be the most practical reason for having the time changes.  It's hard enough to get kids off to school when it's light, much less in the dark.
Oct 30 19:59:34 <Evie>   Oh!  My modern Mini-Deryni have a new fixture in their flat....  https://www.flickr.com/gp/9573389@N08/1sp92o
Oct 30 19:59:42 <DesertRose>   Well, school schedules need adjusting anyway.
Oct 30 19:59:48 <DomMelchior>   Of course take that with a grain of salt, after all you know the saying: liars, damn liars, and statisticians.
Oct 30 20:00:11 <Shiral>   I know that I like long summer evenings when it stays light to 8 pm, and I hate really dark weekday mornings!
Oct 30 20:00:19 <Eyikl>   yeah, I remember having to get up in the dark for scool. No fun.
Oct 30 20:00:26 <Jerusha>   Wow - a "real" toilet
Oct 30 20:00:31 <DesertRose>   Yeah, nobody's idea of a good time, to be sure.
Oct 30 20:00:45 <DesertRose>   One of my favorite things about starting uni was getting to more or less pick my own schedule.
Oct 30 20:00:52 <Derynifank>   Love the br. Cool
Oct 30 20:00:54 <DesertRose>   No more 7:45 am classes!
Oct 30 20:01:10 <Evie>   I used to hate the days when it was dark when I left for work and dark when I left, with no window to see sunlight in between those times, so my only sunlight was when I went out for lunch
Oct 30 20:01:22 <Jemler>   time for Young Frankenstein.
Oct 30 20:01:38 <KK>   I  managed to avoid 0800 classes for all but my year of physics--and I didn't like physics to begin with. 
Oct 30 20:01:46 <DesertRose>   I used to pray (successfully, so Someone Upstairs liked me) that I wouldn't get a math class before second period, because there was no chance I'd actually be awake before then, regardless of when my body was out of bed, fed, dressed, etc.
Oct 30 20:01:49 <Jerusha>   Not good, Evie - you need real light
Oct 30 20:02:09 <Eyikl>   Yeep! I never had it that bad Evie.
Oct 30 20:02:39 <Evie>   Yes.  I ended up really low on Vitamin D and had to take a prescription level dosage last year trying to get my levels up before I could switch to the strongest over-the-counter daily dose
Oct 30 20:03:04 <DesertRose>   There's also Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Oct 30 20:03:44 <DesertRose>   People need sunlight for a number of reasons.
Oct 30 20:03:45 <Evie>   Yes, which thankfully doesn't affect me nearly as badly as some, although it does affect my mood to some extent.
Oct 30 20:04:09 <Jemler>   Seasonal Affective Disorder always makes me SAD. :(
Oct 30 20:04:14 <Evie>   Just because I'm naturally a Night Owl doesn't mean I don't need any sunlight
Oct 30 20:04:19 <DomMelchior>   Well guys, I need to go tend to the hound.  Have a Happy Halloween all.
Oct 30 20:04:22 *   Shiral smacks Jemler with a kipper
Oct 30 20:04:27 *   DesertRose smacks Jemler with a goldfish.
Oct 30 20:04:32 <DesertRose>   See you later, DomMelchior!

Oct 30 20:04:56 <Shiral>   Bye, Jerusha
Oct 30 20:05:00 <Jemler>   i'm sorry. i'll try to keep a kipper upper lipper.
Oct 30 20:05:06 <The_Bee>   bye jerusha

Oct 30 20:05:11 <Derynifank>   Bye Jerusha
Oct 30 20:05:30 *   DesertRose rolls her eyes heavenward and just backhands Jemler--not too hard.
Oct 30 20:05:35 <Evie>   LOL
Oct 30 20:05:38 <Jemler>   lol
Oct 30 20:05:52 <Evie>   I just visualized that.  :D

Oct 30 20:06:22 *   KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
Oct 30 20:06:38 <The_Bee>   Thanks for coming, K.  Think you'll find time for a bit of writing ?
Oct 30 20:06:42 <KK>   Fortunately, the computer remembers what time it is.  :D
Oct 30 20:06:52 <DesertRose>   Yay for computers that auto-update the time! :)
Oct 30 20:07:07 <Eyikl>   and computers in general
Oct 30 20:07:13 <DesertRose>   That too!  :D
Oct 30 20:07:17 <The_Bee>   The only clock I need to reset is on my microwave.

"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.)
