KK Chat -- 27 November 2016
« on: November 27, 2016, 07:27:19 pm »
Nov 27 19:15:06 *   KK has joined
Nov 27 19:15:13 <Evie>   Hm.  Looking at Wikipedia's entry on Advent wreaths, it seems the red candles are more traditional in the UK, so maybe I won't change the candles out, since I figure modern Gwynedd is similar to the UK
Nov 27 19:15:14 <Annie>   There is no such thing as too much vanilla.
Nov 27 19:15:14 <Jemler>   hi kk
Nov 27 19:15:19 <Laurna>   Perfect Timing KK
Nov 27 19:15:21 <Annie>   Hi KK
Nov 27 19:15:28 <DesertRose>   Hi, KK
Nov 27 19:15:28 <Evie>   I would say she'll be here, DR.  ;-)
Nov 27 19:15:30 <KK>   Hello, all.
Nov 27 19:15:32 <DesertRose>   Never mind, Evie.  :)
Nov 27 19:15:45 <The_Bee>   Hi KK
Nov 27 19:15:48 <Laurna>   How is your mom KK
Nov 27 19:15:54 <Jemler>   when i die, it will be suicide by chocolate!
Nov 27 19:15:58 <Laurna>   I hope she is much better
Nov 27 19:16:14 <DesertRose>   Laurna is making fudge, KK.
Nov 27 19:16:20 <Evie>   Mini Christmas decor is up, KK:  https://flic.kr/p/Nr83dZ
Nov 27 19:16:24 <DesertRose>   Or just made fudge and it's cooling.
Nov 27 19:16:28 <The_Bee>   Deryni fudge?
Nov 27 19:16:34 <Laurna>   Should be ready to pass a round in a moment
Nov 27 19:16:50 <KK>   She's doing very well.  In rehab just across the street.  I took Gus to see her this afternoon, and she was thrilled.  Working on her stamina in walking.
Nov 27 19:16:57 <Evie>   As of this afternoon, since I flatly refuse to do Christmas before Thanksgiving.
Nov 27 19:16:59 <DesertRose>   Good to hear.  :)
Nov 27 19:17:04 <DesertRose>   Oh, me too.
Nov 27 19:17:20 <Laurna>   Nice you could take Gus to see her.
Nov 27 19:17:21 <Evie>   Glad the rehab is that close
Nov 27 19:17:35 <DesertRose>   I will NOT put up a single Christmas decoration, and if I'm not involved in a choral production, I don't want to hear the first note of Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving.
Nov 27 19:17:48 *   Jerusha (Mibbit@OWIRCN-4e4bdb82.dsl.bell.ca) has joined
Nov 27 19:17:49 <The_Bee>   I sent out my request for family wissshlissts yesterday.
Nov 27 19:17:50 <DesertRose>   Gus the therapy cat?
Nov 27 19:17:52 <DesertRose>   Hi Jerusha
Nov 27 19:17:55 <Jemler>   hi jerusha
Nov 27 19:17:56 <The_Bee>   Hi Jerusha
Nov 27 19:18:01 <Annie>   I have heard Christmas music already.
Nov 27 19:18:04 <Laurna>   Hello Jerusha
Nov 27 19:18:07 <Jerusha>   Hi Everyone!
Nov 27 19:18:10 <Evie>   One radio station here starts playing Christmas music on Halloween.  I refuse to tune in to that station until December 1.
Nov 27 19:18:14 <Annie>   Once in the pub with a friend on Friday.
Nov 27 19:18:18 *   Dov (Mibbit@OWIRCN-a73f83ba.tx.comcast.net) has joined
Nov 27 19:18:20 <DesertRose>   Seriously, Evie, I don't blame you.
Nov 27 19:18:22 <DesertRose>   Hi Dov
Nov 27 19:18:24 <The_Bee>   hi Dov
Nov 27 19:18:26 <Annie>   Once for a reason too complicated to go into here.
Nov 27 19:18:33 <Jemler>   Dov! long time!
Nov 27 19:18:36 <Dov>   Hi everyone!
Nov 27 19:18:40 <Jerusha>   Hi Dov
Nov 27 19:18:44 <KK>   He's a very good therapy cat.  Scott took him over last week, while I was in Florida, and they also had a great visit.  He (Gus) is on my lap now.
Nov 27 19:18:45 <Evie>   Hi Dov
Nov 27 19:18:49 <DesertRose>   Hi Gus.
Nov 27 19:18:55 <Laurna>   My Ipod reset it self two months ago.  I have been listening to christmas music intersperes with my favarite music for two months already
Nov 27 19:19:01 <DesertRose>   I would hope Scott wasn't on your lap! :D
Nov 27 19:19:23 <The_Bee>   Yes. KK should be in Scott's lap.
Nov 27 19:20:16 <Laurna>   Most of my Christmas music is instermental  so I don't mind it.
Nov 27 19:20:20 <DesertRose>   Carys is napping on the foot of my bed, having gotten offended at being repeatedly evicted from the desk chair, where she tries to sit whenever I get out of it.
Nov 27 19:20:58 <Laurna>   All my dogs are curled up on my feet
Nov 27 19:20:59 <KK>   It's cold here.  Last Saturday, a week ago, I was on a sailboat that I'd rented, along with a skipper for same and my aunt, and we scattered my dad's and stepmother's ashes in Biscayne Bay.  A beautiful day on the water, could not have asked for better.
Nov 27 19:21:20 <Evie>   Mine have wandered off for once, though Gigi was demanding two-handed attention earlier
Nov 27 19:21:21 <DesertRose>   Oh, I'm glad the weather cooperated.
Nov 27 19:21:30 <Laurna>   That sounds really Nice KK
Nov 27 19:21:40 <Jerusha>   Yes, KK, very nice
Nov 27 19:21:40 <Evie>   That sounds lovely
Nov 27 19:22:01 <KK>   Yep.  Probably the last chance for that kind of day for a while, even in south Florida.  But it was perfect.
Nov 27 19:22:06 <The_Bee>   Did your dad love sailing?
Nov 27 19:22:06 <DesertRose>   Florida being the natural home of changeable weather.
Nov 27 19:22:30 <KK>   Yes, we had a 14 ft. sailboat that we used to sail all over that region.
Nov 27 19:23:08 <DesertRose>   I used to want to learn to sail an ocean-going sailboat, and then I found out I get seasick.  Shot that notion.
Nov 27 19:23:19 <Dov>   Well, today I found the site of a musician who composed a score for the Adsum Domine! www.mewsic.com/ed/music/adsumdomine/index.html
Nov 27 19:23:26 <Laurna>   You'll get wet in a 14footer
Nov 27 19:23:42 <KK>   Not on a day like we had, Laurna.
Nov 27 19:23:51 <DesertRose>   Oh, how cool is that, Dov?!
Nov 27 19:23:52 <Laurna>   I had a 12 foot lazer as a kid.
Nov 27 19:24:22 <The_Bee>   Dov, your link isn't clickable on mu computr.
Nov 27 19:24:54 <Evie>   It's working for me.  Maybe try copying and pasting it to a browser window, Bee
Nov 27 19:24:56 <Laurna>   I grew up on boots. Lived on a 42 foot ketch rig in the carrabean for  two years.
Nov 27 19:24:58 <Evie>   That might work for you
Nov 27 19:25:24 <Jerusha>   Those must have been big boots, Laurna!
Nov 27 19:25:29 <Dov>   It doesn't show up as linkable, but I don't know why. That's deeper magic than I know.
Nov 27 19:25:31 <KK>   The boat we were on was a 20 footer, a sloop-rigged day-sailer, and it was great.
Nov 27 19:25:42 <Laurna>   HEHE   ok boat not boot   Oh dear
Nov 27 19:26:05 <Evie>   Seven league boots. ;-)
Nov 27 19:26:16 <DesertRose>   LOL
Nov 27 19:26:16 <KK>   Must've been in Germany, where a boot is a boat.  Remember Das Boot?
Nov 27 19:26:25 <Jemler>   Canadian. About is abowt.
Nov 27 19:26:26 <Laurna>   lol
Nov 27 19:26:51 *   Jerusha aims a snowball at Jemler
Nov 27 19:26:55 <DesertRose>   NO!
Nov 27 19:26:57 <Evie>   :-D
Nov 27 19:27:08 <DesertRose>   The Floridian decrees there will be no snow flying about the chat room!  :)
Nov 27 19:27:18 <Laurna>   Old mother Hubbard lived in a shoe...
Nov 27 19:27:22 *   Evie rolls a snowball at Jemler
Nov 27 19:27:24 <DesertRose>   It isn't even freaking December yet!
Nov 27 19:27:26 <Evie>   It's not flying, DR
Nov 27 19:27:27 <The_Bee>   cut and paste worked
Nov 27 19:27:30 <DesertRose>   NO SNOW!
Nov 27 19:27:37 <DesertRose>   Snow is a four-letter word!
Nov 27 19:27:40 <Jerusha>   Snow does not wait until December in Canada
Nov 27 19:27:43 <DesertRose>   I know.
Nov 27 19:27:44 <DesertRose>   :)
Nov 27 19:27:54 <Laurna>   I
Nov 27 19:28:05 <Laurna>   I'll take some snow please
Nov 27 19:28:10 <DesertRose>   It probably doesn't even wait until November sometimes, Jerusha.
Nov 27 19:28:15 <Jerusha>   The whippets Christmas sweaters are hung by the door
Nov 27 19:28:25 <DesertRose>   Aw, puppeh sweaters!
Nov 27 19:28:27 <Laurna>   we have had rain all day today.  How cool is that
Nov 27 19:28:31 <DesertRose>   Yay rain!
Nov 27 19:28:32 <Jemler>   i'm suddenly curious about something. if you look at american comics in the paper, you'll see people sleeping with a line of z's for snoring. like zzz. do they say zedzedzed in british comics? :)
Nov 27 19:28:48 <DesertRose>   We need some too.  We haven't had any reasonable rain since the freaking hurricane really.

Nov 27 19:29:05 <DesertRose>   Hi Shiral, hi Derynifank
Nov 27 19:29:08 <Evie>   KK, DH says to tell you Hi
Nov 27 19:29:10 *   Shiral joins Channel
Nov 27 19:29:11 <The_Bee>   We've had some rain, need more
Nov 27 19:29:14 <Jemler>   hi shiral, derynifank
Nov 27 19:29:16 *   Jerusha packs up a case of snow that will melt by the time it reaches DR
Nov 27 19:29:18 <The_Bee>   Hi Shiral
Nov 27 19:29:23 <KK>   Good question, Jemler.  Laurna?
Nov 27 19:29:30 <Dov>   Welcome Shiral ad Derynifank
Nov 27 19:29:32 <Shiral>   Hi Jemler, Evie, DR, Dov, Derynifank, Laurna and Bee
Nov 27 19:29:34 <The_Bee>   and Hi Derynifank
Nov 27 19:29:36 <Jerusha>   Hi Shiral, hi Derynifank
Nov 27 19:29:37 <Evie>   I think we have rain in the forecast soon, which we desperately need since we haven't had any for over 60 days
Nov 27 19:29:37 <Laurna>   I heard about all those fires in the south.  Did they get them out?
Nov 27 19:29:38 <Shiral>   Jemler, how are you doing?
Nov 27 19:29:39 <DesertRose>   That it will, because we will not see freezing temperatures anytime soon.
Nov 27 19:29:58 <Laurna>   Hello Shiral  and Der
Nov 27 19:30:03 <DesertRose>   I think it's supposed to rain here on Thursday.  Hopefully it actually will.
Nov 27 19:30:08 *   Shiral snaps fingers and produces mulled cider
Nov 27 19:30:08 <Derynifank>   Hi everyone. Hope you had a good holiday
Nov 27 19:30:12 <Jemler>   ok. finished dinner.
Nov 27 19:30:13 <Evie>   DH went out to look at Lake Purdy (one of the water sources for Birmingham) yesterday, and the bottom of what is normally lake is completely dry and cracked.
Nov 27 19:30:22 <DesertRose>   Holy cats, Evie!
Nov 27 19:30:30 <Evie>   It looks like an alien landscape.  There's just a small mud puddle where the lake used to be
Nov 27 19:30:31 <Jerusha>   That's not good, Evie
Nov 27 19:30:34 <DesertRose>   Yikes!
Nov 27 19:30:47 <DesertRose>   At least the St. Johns River still looks like a river.
Nov 27 19:30:56 <Dov>   Not good at all, Evie
Nov 27 19:30:57 <DesertRose>   Some of the smaller creeks are probably low, though.
Nov 27 19:31:14 <The_Bee>   any talk of rationing water, DR?
Nov 27 19:31:19 <DesertRose>   Not that I've heard, no.
Nov 27 19:31:26 <Derynifank>   Weather channel says rain is coming your wau
Nov 27 19:31:48 <Derynifank>   Way
Nov 27 19:31:49 <DesertRose>   We had a water outage in my building a few days ago, but that was because there was a plumbing leak that had to be repaired, so they had to turn off the water supply to make the repairs.
Nov 27 19:32:12 *   Dov has some mulled cider
Nov 27 19:32:32 <Evie>   This should all be underwater:  https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1106136699442016&set=a.393669077355452.97448.100001370892437&type=3&theater
Nov 27 19:32:41 *   Jerusha adds leftover pizza from dinner
Nov 27 19:33:02 <DesertRose>   It just made me angry because it inconvenienced me.  I was getting ready to leave for my mom's house to go up to Charleston for Thanksgiving, but I still needed to do the dishes (joy), clean the cat box, and take a shower, none of which I can do without running water in the apartment, and I had to wait until the water was turned back on two hours later to get the stuff done that needed doing.
Nov 27 19:33:12 <Evie>   Luke was back briefly to stand on my hands. Having done that, he's off again.
Nov 27 19:33:13 <KK>   Wow, that's some dried lake!
Nov 27 19:33:37 <Jerusha>   No water is no fun
Nov 27 19:33:45 <DesertRose>   Yikes, Evie.
Nov 27 19:33:50 <Laurna>   That is one dry river bed Evie.  Looks like the one that I described above Cynfyn Castle.
Nov 27 19:34:28 <Evie>   Another part of the lake bed: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1106129556109397&set=a.393669077355452.97448.100001370892437&type=3&theater
Nov 27 19:34:41 <Evie>   So yeah.  Rain. We need it.
Nov 27 19:34:50 <DesertRose>   Eek.
Nov 27 19:34:59 <Derynifank>   Wow
Nov 27 19:35:02 <DesertRose>   You need a lot of rain, in small quantities but over a long period of time.
Nov 27 19:35:09 <Evie>   DD likes to have bonfire birthday parties, but we were already under a burn ban back in September.
Nov 27 19:35:13 <KK>   Where <did> the fish go?
Nov 27 19:35:14 <Laurna>   E gads that is a lot of NO Water
Nov 27 19:35:45 <DesertRose>   Hopefully something else feeds that lake and the fishies went elsewhere.
Nov 27 19:35:55 <DesertRose>   We flung them all at Jemler!  ;)
Nov 27 19:36:16 <Evie>   Um...I didn't inquire as to their eternal destination, but presumably unless they are still in the receding water somewhere else, they are either dead or someplace not there. 
Nov 27 19:36:48 <Evie>   I think there is still a little bit of water in the deepest area of the lake, but it has dried up considerably.
Nov 27 19:36:59 <The_Bee>   maybe providing a feast for scavengers
Nov 27 19:37:15 <KK>   Poor fishies!
Nov 27 19:37:18 <Dov>   I see a fish skeleton in one picture.
Nov 27 19:37:20 <DesertRose>   Indeed.
Nov 27 19:37:21 <Laurna>   That is not your water source  I hope.
Nov 27 19:37:21 <Evie>   Yes, there are probably some happy scavengers in the area, although possibly thirsty ones as well.
Nov 27 19:37:34 *   Derynifank has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
Nov 27 19:37:42 <DesertRose>   BRB
Nov 27 19:37:59 <Annie>   Is your DD at uni now, Evie?
Nov 27 19:38:04 <Evie>   No, that supplies Birmingham, which is a little south of us, but I'm sure our water supply is not as plentiful as it needs to be either.
Nov 27 19:38:23 <Evie>   No, she's taking a gap year, though she hopes to start next autumn

Nov 27 19:39:20 <Evie>   My husband
Nov 27 19:39:28 <Derynifank>   Mibbit misbehaving again
Nov 27 19:39:47 <Annie>   Cool.
Nov 27 19:40:05 <Annie>   DD is talking about a gap year once she's finished.
Nov 27 19:40:15 <Evie>   Luke is back and demanding use of my left hand
Nov 27 19:40:22 <Dov>   Is he in the SCA?
Nov 27 19:40:30 <Evie>   It should be paying him undivided attention
Nov 27 19:40:44 <Evie>   Yes, Dov.  We're in Meridies.
Nov 27 19:40:55 <Evie>   Are you?  :-)
Nov 27 19:41:28 <Dov>   Excellent! I'm in the Barony of Stargate in Anteorra (Houston, TX)
Nov 27 19:41:53 <Derynifank>   Whst is SCA
Nov 27 19:42:05 <Evie>   Awesome!  We're going to TX for Christmas, actually, though the only time I've been to Ansteorra in an SCA context was for the 25th Year Celebration
Nov 27 19:42:20 <Jemler>   Society for Creative Anachronism.
Nov 27 19:42:27 <Laurna>   Our SCA put on a street fair yesterday about 30 miles away. Wish I could have found someone to go with me.  I wanted to see it.
Nov 27 19:42:35 <Dov>   Society for Creative Anachronism. We study and practice medieval culture.
Nov 27 19:42:35 <Jemler>   they recreate the middle ages.
Nov 27 19:42:37 <Evie>   The Society for Creative Anachronism.  We study and re-create the better aspects of the Middle Ages, although we cling to comforts like flush plumbing. ;-)
Nov 27 19:42:50 <Derynifank>   Cool
Nov 27 19:42:58 <The_Bee>   a group of people who re-create medieval life for fun
Nov 27 19:43:00 <Evie>   Or at least Port-a-potties.  :-D
Nov 27 19:43:20 <Evie>   Check out www.sca.org for more info
Nov 27 19:43:27 <KK>   I was at the 25 year.  Who knew?
Nov 27 19:43:32 <Derynifank>   What, no garderobes?
Nov 27 19:43:40 <Jerusha>   Recreating a garderobe might not be a whole lot of fun
Nov 27 19:43:46 <DesertRose>   You could have gone by yourself, Laurna.  We don't bite.  Hard.  :)
Nov 27 19:43:51 <Derynifank>   True
Nov 27 19:43:53 <Evie>   Yes, KK, I had a photo that for years I thought might be a picture of you from 25th Year, but it turns out it was someone else
Nov 27 19:44:24 <DesertRose>   Also air conditioning, as much as possible, at least down here in Trimaris.  :)

Nov 27 19:45:04 <Jerusha>   Coroth Castle would be a good choice
Nov 27 19:45:10 <Dov>   Greetings bronwynevaine
Nov 27 19:45:26 <Jemler>   hi bronwynevaine
Nov 27 19:45:29 <The_Bee>   first-time chat, Bronwynevaine?
Nov 27 19:45:29 <DesertRose>   Oh, KK, there's a forum participant named Lochiel, I'm not sure if they've ever made it to chat, but they asked on the forums if Torcuill de la Marche was any relation to Jocelyn, Countess of Culdi, and I said I'd try to remember to ask you.
Nov 27 19:45:40 <Derynifank>   Rhemuth Castle  would be great
Nov 27 19:46:07 <Evie>   I can't even find room to build a 1:6 scale Rhemuth Castle, much less full scale
Nov 27 19:46:15 <DesertRose>   Since de la Marche was her maiden name.

Nov 27 19:46:56 <DesertRose>   Big crowd.
Nov 27 19:47:05 <KK>   Could be, DR.  I'd have to consult my genealogy charts.
Nov 27 19:47:11 <DesertRose>   Okay.  Fair enough.
Nov 27 19:47:16 <DomMelchior>   Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving
Nov 27 19:47:36 <DesertRose>   It's an uncommon enough name that I wondered myself.
Nov 27 19:47:44 <Dov>   Thanks, DonMelchior.
Nov 27 19:47:49 <Evie>   The day I post a photo of Mini-Duncan and Mini-Alaric having a casual side-by-side chat with their braies pooled around their ankles will be the Twelfth of Never.
Nov 27 19:47:52 <The_Bee>   We used an outhouse for several years during summer vacation in Vermont.
Nov 27 19:47:55 <Shiral>   Very nice. Food turned out well. We also turned it into a birthday party for my Dad
Nov 27 19:47:57 <DesertRose>   LOL, Evie
Nov 27 19:48:07 <bronwynevaine>   First time in chat in quite a while
Nov 27 19:48:20 <Shiral>   Hi Bronwynevaine
Nov 27 19:48:30 <Evie>   Good to have you back, bronwynevaine
Nov 27 19:48:38 <Jerusha>   That is an unnerving picture, Evie
Nov 27 19:49:01 <KK>   That's what charts are for: keeping track of obscure factoids.
Nov 27 19:49:01 <DesertRose>   We had a nice one too, although I was a bit overwhelmed because I've gotten used to my solitary existence (except for my kitty cat) and my quiet, and Thanksgiving Dinner with 30+ relatives of varying ages was a bit...loud.
Nov 27 19:49:02 <Laurna>   Well you could have a Garderobe that had a hidden door to a library.
Nov 27 19:49:24 <Evie>   I don't want a bunch of armed mini-knights slaying me in my sleep, Jerusha. :-D
Nov 27 19:49:28 <DesertRose>   But the food and company were lovely.
Nov 27 19:49:57 <KK>   Evie, folk did that.  It was a more social moment than we think of today.
Nov 27 19:50:24 <DesertRose>   "Let's talk it over in the loo..."
Nov 27 19:50:27 <Laurna>   I could see someone using the said Garderobe and someone rushing in past them in a hurry to get the the portal.
Nov 27 19:50:29 <Evie>   Yeah, I know, and at least it wasn't like the Roman public toilets. "Could you pass me the sponge on the stick, please?"
Nov 27 19:50:39 <Jerusha>   Somehow pictures of tacky conversations come to mind....
Nov 27 19:50:46 <The_Bee>   Armed mini-knights slew people in their sleep, KK??
Nov 27 19:50:48 <DesertRose>   Oh dear
Nov 27 19:51:41 <Dov>   Faulty link, Bee.
Nov 27 19:52:09 <Jerusha>   "A funny thing happened on the way to the garderobe"
Nov 27 19:52:10 <Evie>   The problem with a garderobe leading to a library is that I'd have to make all of those books!  Books are VERY time consuming!
Nov 27 19:52:26 <DesertRose>   Yeah, about the only time I can think of a garderobe conversation is in KKB where Meraude is using the loo and talking about how she thinks she might be pregnant again and Jerusha can feel the secret entrance but Meraude can't.
Nov 27 19:52:31 <Laurna>   Oh dear  Evie.  It just occured to me.   that is not part of Rhemuth that you blew up is it?
Nov 27 19:52:44 <Evie>   Unless I just want to put up a stone wall with a caption "Here be secret Annex entrance"
Nov 27 19:53:00 <KK>   Evie, you could do a bunch of scrolls; much easier and quicker than books.
Nov 27 19:53:02 <DesertRose>   Not Jerusha, Jehana
Nov 27 19:53:08 <Evie>   I could.  I've got a few scrolls
Nov 27 19:53:15 <Evie>   No, don't think so, Laurna
Nov 27 19:53:17 <DesertRose>   Wrong lady's J name.
Nov 27 19:53:22 <Jerusha>   Wow, for a moment I thought I had a part in KKB!
Nov 27 19:53:25 <DesertRose>   LOL
Nov 27 19:53:34 <Shiral>   Darn, so close!
Nov 27 19:53:43 <DesertRose>   :)
Nov 27 19:53:48 <Laurna>   lol
Nov 27 19:54:01 <Jerusha>   Always the bridesmaid
Nov 27 19:54:02 <Evie>   Jerusha's one line "Duchess Meraude, will you be in there long? I've really gotta go!"
Nov 27 19:54:08 <DesertRose>   ROFL
Nov 27 19:54:21 <The_Bee>   Well, you did have a very long life, Jerusha.
Nov 27 19:54:24 <Jerusha>   That was my big moment!
Nov 27 19:54:55 <Jerusha>   (So long as it wasn't a big movement)
Nov 27 19:55:01 *   Jerusha hangs head in shame
Nov 27 19:55:04 <DesertRose>   Oh dear.
Nov 27 19:55:05 <The_Bee>   LOL
Nov 27 19:55:05 <Laurna>   AAKKK!
Nov 27 19:55:05 <Evie>   LOL
Nov 27 19:55:13 <Dov>   All right, hope to be back next week Blessings, everyone.
Nov 27 19:55:16 <DesertRose>   Carys is awake.
Nov 27 19:55:17 <Evie>   If you manage to clog a garderobe, you might need a Healer
Nov 27 19:55:19 <Laurna>   Where are those flying fish
Nov 27 19:55:19 <DesertRose>   G'night, Dov
Nov 27 19:55:19 <Shiral>   Bye, Dov
Nov 27 19:55:25 <Derynifank>   Giggle
Nov 27 19:55:29 <Jemler>   nite dov
Nov 27 19:55:34 <Jerusha>   Night Dov
Nov 27 19:55:36 *   Dov steps onto the Transfer Portal and vanishes...
Nov 27 19:55:40 <Evie>   Goodnight, Dov. Sorry you'll miss our classy conversation
Nov 27 19:55:42 <DesertRose>   I just heard her rusty I-just-woke-up meow and turned to see her fuzzy butt sitting in the doorway to my room.
Nov 27 19:55:43 <Laurna>   Good nigjht Dov
Nov 27 19:55:46 <DesertRose>   LOL, Evie
Nov 27 19:55:59 *   Dov has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
Nov 27 19:56:32 <Evie>   Poor KK. Your fans are such an uncivilized lot.  :-D
Nov 27 19:57:02 *   Jemler grunts
Nov 27 19:57:06 <KK>   My fans are awesome!
Nov 27 19:57:07 <Shiral>   Speak for yourself!
Nov 27 19:57:10 <Laurna>   lol
Nov 27 19:57:13 <DomMelchior>   Well, civilization is a work in progress.
Nov 27 19:57:15 <DesertRose>   :)
Nov 27 19:57:16 <bronwynevaine>   What did I walk into...seems like some of you are talking sh-t LOL
Nov 27 19:57:22 <Shiral>   I always gnaw on my joint of beef with my pinkie finger extended!
Nov 27 19:57:36 <Jerusha>   Style points count
Nov 27 19:57:38 <Evie>   LOL, bronwynevaine
Nov 27 19:57:50 <Evie>   You never know what you'll walk into around here.
Nov 27 19:58:18 <Shiral>   Hopefully not the garderobe
Nov 27 19:58:24 *   Evie checks bottom of shoes
Nov 27 19:58:25 <DesertRose>   Wow, y'all.
Nov 27 19:58:29 <Jerusha>   I think I'll pass on the sponge on the stick, though
Nov 27 19:58:30 <Laurna>   HAHA
Nov 27 19:58:36 <The_Bee>   BTW, any chance you'll find time to write between now and Christms, KK?
Nov 27 19:58:41 <Evie>   Don't pass it to me, Jerusha.
Nov 27 19:58:59 <Shiral>   Well hey, SOMEBODY established that garderobe in the Valoret castle privy!
Nov 27 19:59:09 <KK>   Surely you jest, Bee.  It would be great, but not a snowball's chance.
Nov 27 19:59:25 <DesertRose>   Too busy a time of the year.
Nov 27 19:59:25 <Shiral>   I meant that transfer portal
Nov 27 19:59:34 <Jerusha>   But I can send you a snowball, KK!
Nov 27 19:59:37 <Shiral>   See you're all having bad influence on my gray matter
Nov 27 19:59:45 <bronwynevaine>   Sniff...sniff...not on my shoes :)
Nov 27 19:59:47 <Jemler>   time for tghe Librarians.
Nov 27 20:00:22 <Laurna>   Wait  don't you get snowballs in your neck of the woods.  so it sounds like a good possibilty to write then does it not.
Nov 27 20:00:31 <Shiral>   How is your mother's recovery going, KK?
Nov 27 20:00:39 <Shiral>   Sorry if this is a repeat question
Nov 27 20:01:15 <Evie>   Here you go. Roman public facilities, recreated by another action figure diorama artist who has created an entire Roman city diorama in his basement: http://www.mickbaltes.de/af/blog301.jpg
Nov 27 20:02:10 <Jerusha>   That may be a bit too much detail
Nov 27 20:02:40 <DesertRose>   LOL
Nov 27 20:02:41 <KK>   She's doing well; how well, we'll find out on Tuesday, when there's a meeting with her team.  She wants to go home, of course, but I can't let her until she's safe.
Nov 27 20:02:46 <Laurna>   Yep Jerusha  TMI
Nov 27 20:03:12 <Shiral>   Pretty important that she's steady on her feet, yes. Hope all continues to progress well
Nov 27 20:03:14 <Jerusha>   Hopefully she will be well enough to go home soon, KK
Nov 27 20:03:30 <DesertRose>   Oh, of course she wants to go home.  Nobody WANTS to be in a rehab/hospital.
Nov 27 20:03:39 <DesertRose>   But yeah, she has to be safe to go home first.
Nov 27 20:03:41 <KK>   I know that site, Evie.
Nov 27 20:03:53 <Derynifank>   Hiw about rhemuth in your basenent Evie 
Nov 27 20:04:13 <The_Bee>   My sister's husband is going into rehaab after suffering a number of  seizures.  sspeech and tight side affected.
Nov 27 20:04:27 <DesertRose>   Oh dear, Bee.
Nov 27 20:04:32 <Jerusha>   Hope he gets better soon, Bee
Nov 27 20:04:37 <KK>   Sounds like a stroke of some sort, Bee.
Nov 27 20:04:39 <The_Bee>   we all do
Nov 27 20:04:57 <Evie>   Oh dear. I hope he gets better soon.
Nov 27 20:05:04 <Laurna>   Wish her well,  Bee
Nov 27 20:05:11 <The_Bee>   Yes, it does, KK, but Sue hasn't usedthat word.
Nov 27 20:05:13 <Evie>   I would first have to excavate my basement, Derynifank
Nov 27 20:05:14 <Derynifank>   Hope your mom continues her progress kk
Nov 27 20:05:15 <Laurna>   Oh Him well
Nov 27 20:05:25 <KK>   Thanks.  Me too.
Nov 27 20:05:43 *   Jerusha arranges for a backhoe
Nov 27 20:05:56 <DesertRose>   Carys says hi.  She's hanging out left of my laptop, coincidentally where the fan exhaust is.
Nov 27 20:06:07 <Shiral>   For a minute I thought that said "Jerusha arranges for a backbone."
Nov 27 20:06:08 <Evie>   It might take a backhoe, Jerusha!
Nov 27 20:06:11 <Jerusha>   Scritches for Carys
Nov 27 20:06:21 <Derynifank>   Thanks for the backhie Jerusha
Nov 27 20:06:23 <DesertRose>   She says "Thank you" by purring.
Nov 27 20:06:53 <Shiral>   Tati had a lovely time polishing the turkey platter after I put the leftovers away on Thanksgiving Night. She was so happy!
Nov 27 20:06:56 <KK>   Gus has found a spot on the music cabinet just inside my office door, that's right under a warm air duct--though he's opted for the warm lap just now.
Nov 27 20:07:00 <Jerusha>   I have a backbone, somewhere, I thnk, maybe....
Nov 27 20:07:06 <DesertRose>   Oh, I bet Tati and Dmitri were happy campers!
Nov 27 20:07:35 <The_Bee>   My sister said sosmething about the white matter in his brain being disturbed by theseizures.
Nov 27 20:07:36 <Shiral>   Dmitri came down and said hello, but I carried him right back upstairs when he had the audacity to jump right up on the table
Nov 27 20:07:54 <DesertRose>   No shame in his game, huh?
Nov 27 20:07:57 <DesertRose>   :)
Nov 27 20:08:18 <Jerusha>   Oh, those Russians...
Nov 27 20:08:21 <Shiral>   I did take them their regular supper after that. He was just hungry, and  he was smelling all this tasty stuff he doesn't normally get
Nov 27 20:08:29 <DesertRose>   :)
Nov 27 20:08:51 <Shiral>   Not a lot of shame, no. He has weaponized good looks
Nov 27 20:09:10 <The_Bee>   Laps are softer than cabinets, KK
Nov 27 20:09:10 <DesertRose>   Carys too, and she also uses her purring and cuddling to good effect.
Nov 27 20:09:19 <Evie>   hopefully no permanent damage, Bee  :-(
Nov 27 20:09:33 <DesertRose>   Indeed, what Evie said, Bee.
Nov 27 20:09:36 <Shiral>   We've had a very chilly week. I'm incredibly popular with the cats
Nov 27 20:09:45 <Derynifank>   Hope he gets bettrr Bee
Nov 27 20:10:00 <The_Bee>   At least he's ready for rehab
Nov 27 20:10:19 <Shiral>   Sorry for your BIL's health troubles, Bee. Sounds scary
Nov 27 20:10:27 <Laurna>   My heater turned off and there is now a cold draft from somewhere.  I wounder if I left a window open.
Nov 27 20:10:30 <DesertRose>   Carys would probably have been interested in turkey, but the turkey and I were in South Carolina and she was here in Florida, being cared for by my neighbor.
Nov 27 20:11:04 <DesertRose>   She LOVES chicken, so I have to think she'd like turkey too.
Nov 27 20:11:36 <Shiral>   My two have been getting some very nice nibbles. I gave away a lot of leftovers and I'm at that point of "get this **** bird away from me!"
Nov 27 20:11:44 <DesertRose>   LOL, yes.
Nov 27 20:11:46 <The_Bee>   not necessarily.  Melantha likeschicken, but I'm not sureshe cares for turkey or duck.
Nov 27 20:12:20 <Jerusha>   I freeze my turkey leftovers, and use them throughout the winter
Nov 27 20:12:25 <DesertRose>   My aunt calculated the size of the turkey she cooked very well and there wasn't a lot of leftover turkey after dinner on Thursday afternoon but she also baked a ham and we had LOTS of leftover ham.
Nov 27 20:12:39 <Laurna>   The dogs had some bits of turkey when i made a sandwich at lunch. they went bonkers over it.
Nov 27 20:12:51 <Derynifank>   Can't beat turkey soup
Nov 27 20:13:03 <The_Bee>   I have thankgivingcdinner at church.  only one serving of take-home
Nov 27 20:13:06 <Evie>   Yay, just saw that we have a prediction of 2" to 4" of rain in the next few days here. It won't reverse the drought conditions, but it's a fine start.
Nov 27 20:13:13 <DesertRose>   Good!
Nov 27 20:13:24 <Shiral>   I warmed up some leftover stuffing, poached an egg and had that for breakfast this morning. Delish!
Nov 27 20:13:33 <DesertRose>   :)
Nov 27 20:13:38 <Derynifank>   Yay
Nov 27 20:13:39 <Laurna>   yum
Nov 27 20:13:40 *   Jerusha sends Evie a rubber duckie (that almost came out dukie
Nov 27 20:13:40 <The_Bee>   How is your drought situation, Sshiral?
Nov 27 20:13:53 <Laurna>   lol Jerusha
Nov 27 20:14:25 <DesertRose>   I now have Carys on my left arm so I'm typing with my right hand only.
Nov 27 20:14:32 <Shiral>   We've actually had a wetter fall this year than we've had for a while. Which is hopeful. Quite a bit of rain over the past 10 days. But it would have to rain for about 40 days to truly help
Nov 27 20:14:34 <Evie>   I have a rubber duckie and a plastic/vinyl Dukey
Nov 27 20:14:51 <bronwynevaine>   Make that rubber dukie Duncan and Evie would be happy
Nov 27 20:15:00 <Jerusha>   All hail the Duck of Corwyn!
Nov 27 20:15:03 <DesertRose>   LOL
Nov 27 20:15:10 <Laurna>   Hail Hail
Nov 27 20:15:17 <Shiral>   Say "Rubber Dukie Duncan" three times fast...
Nov 27 20:16:03 <Shiral>   I love stuffing, but I think I really overdid it, this year
Nov 27 20:16:12 <DesertRose>   LOL
Nov 27 20:16:35 <DomMelchior>   You can never have to much stuffing, Shiral.
Nov 27 20:16:46 <DesertRose>   My mom did the year before last, because she was trying to work out how to make dressing the way she remembered her mom making it.
Nov 27 20:16:49 <Shiral>   Even after everyone had eaten at least two helpings, I still had a pretty full baking dish left
Nov 27 20:16:58 <DesertRose>   Last year she got it right.
Nov 27 20:17:04 <DesertRose>   In taste as well as quantity.
Nov 27 20:17:07 <Evie>   "Rubber Dukie Duncan, you're so fun...."
Nov 27 20:17:11 <DomMelchior>   Just get a bigger bird.  Swan, perhaps.
Nov 27 20:17:11 <DesertRose>   LOL
Nov 27 20:17:14 *   Evie continues singing happily
Nov 27 20:17:32 <Laurna>   I didn't get any stuffing this year.  hope to have some a christmas
Nov 27 20:17:41 <Shiral>   "you make my bath time so much fun...." Umm....I don't think the Archbishop of Rhemuth would want this song to continue...."
Nov 27 20:17:42 <KK>   We went to a local hotel, as we always do.  And forgot to mention that we were able to spring Mother for dinner for a few hours.  She did fine, and really enjoyed the change of scenery, not to mention the excellent food.
Nov 27 20:17:50 <DesertRose>   I don't even know what my mom is planning to cook for Christmas.
Nov 27 20:17:57 <Derynifank>   Remeber, swans belong to the king
Nov 27 20:18:05 <DesertRose>   Oh, I bet LBM appreciated getting out of Purgatory!  :D
Nov 27 20:18:13 <KK>   Oh, she did.
Nov 27 20:18:32 <DesertRose>   I bet that's about what it felt like, too.  :)
Nov 27 20:18:35 <Laurna>   That is great that she got to go to dinner with you kk
Nov 27 20:18:37 <DomMelchior>   We want out too.  So much easier with just the two of us.
Nov 27 20:18:39 <Jerusha>   Nice that she could get away for awhile, KK
Nov 27 20:18:44 <Evie>   Don't get me into trouble with Cardiel, Shiral!  :-D
Nov 27 20:18:45 <DomMelchior>   went out, that is
Nov 27 20:19:01 <DesertRose>   Yes, when you've got a small crowd, there's no point really in cooking a huge dinner.
Nov 27 20:19:03 <Shiral>   I don't think you need a lot of help in that regard, Evie. =o)
Nov 27 20:19:16 <Jemler>   Cardiel is the nice one, Evie!
Nov 27 20:19:28 <Shiral>   But he's STILL an Archbisho
Nov 27 20:19:33 <Shiral>   Archbishop.
Nov 27 20:19:34 <KK>   She should be home well in time for Christmas.  And Cameron and Anna are coming this year--she loves to cook!--so I'm not sure what we'll have.  Scott votes for our usual beef stroganoff, but I'm up for a turkey, if Anna wants to do one.
Nov 27 20:19:39 <DesertRose>   When we do a holiday dinner that's just my parents, kiddo, and me, Mom and I don't cook a massive pile of food, and there are still a boatload of leftovers.
Nov 27 20:19:52 <DesertRose>   That
Nov 27 20:19:57 <DesertRose>   That's good news, KK!
Nov 27 20:20:15 <Jemler>   But if she ticks off Duncan, he might not play with her anymore! :)
Nov 27 20:20:20 <Jerusha>   Home for Christmas is good
Nov 27 20:20:39 <Shiral>   I had success with my turkey, this year. Last year it was tasty, but the white meat was a bit bath-towelish.
Nov 27 20:21:04 <DesertRose>   It's hard to get the turkey done just right.
Nov 27 20:21:07 <Jerusha>   You had to wring out the white meat?
Nov 27 20:21:09 <Shiral>   It sure is
Nov 27 20:21:11 <The_Bee>   It's a challenge to not dry out white meat.
Nov 27 20:21:18 <DesertRose>   Indeed, Bee.
Nov 27 20:21:39 <KK>    All this talk of food is making me hungry, so I think I'll say goodnight.  And we're early next week, I do believe.
Nov 27 20:21:43 <Shiral>   I brined it lovingly. This year I put it in the oven, and pretty much left it alone. Just did a bit of basting during the last hour
Nov 27 20:21:49 <Shiral>   Night, KK
Nov 27 20:21:52 <DesertRose>   Yes, ma'am, early chat next week is the plan.
Nov 27 20:21:53 <Shiral>   Thanks for popping by
Nov 27 20:21:59 <DomMelchior>   G' Night, KK
Nov 27 20:22:01 <Laurna>   Good Night KK.
Nov 27 20:22:01 <DesertRose>   G'night, KK!  Thanks for coming to see us!
Nov 27 20:22:03 <Shiral>   Wish Margaret a speedy recovery from me
Nov 27 20:22:04 <Jerusha>   Night KK, have a good week!
Nov 27 20:22:04 <Derynifank>   Suggestion for moist white meat, roast the bird upside diwn and it bastes itself
Nov 27 20:22:09 <Jemler>   nite kk
Nov 27 20:22:18 <The_Bee>   bye KK.  Thanks for coming at see you next week for early chat.
Nov 27 20:22:19 <Evie>   Goodnight!
Nov 27 20:22:24 <Shiral>   Well, too late for that now, Derynifank =o)
Nov 27 20:22:27 <Laurna>   I am hungry too.
Nov 27 20:22:29 <Derynifank>   Goid nute kk
Nov 27 20:22:32 <KK>   Nighters, all.  And Shiral, you should've posted a pic of your pumpkin pie, after all that description of the battle you had with the food processor.
Nov 27 20:22:32 <DesertRose>   Note for next year.  :)

"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.)
