KK Chat - July 27, 2008
« on: July 28, 2008, 11:51:55 am »
[18:34] * KK has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[18:34] <&DeryniBot>  Gwynedd's Sheriff, Marnin, nods to KK and checks their weapons at the door.
[18:34] <@DesertRose> Hi KK!
[18:34] <Elf> hi KK!
[18:34] <the_Bee> Hi KK!
[18:34] <Sarah> KK HI
[18:34] <@Bynw> hiyas KK
[18:34] <@KK> Hi, guys!
[18:34] <jemler> KK!
[18:34] <~RainbowDragon> Greetings, KK
[18:34] <Samuel> Hello KK
[18:34] <jemler> twice in two weeks!
[18:35] <+Elim> I look over at the cat flopping around with the squirrel and said "No, no it's quite dead, she's just re-enacting  the epic battle."
[18:35] <+Elim> Morning KK
[18:35] <Festil> hi KK
[18:35] <Sarah> lol
[18:35] <@KK> Cat must've been talking to my Gus.
[18:35] <+Shiral> Hello  Katherine
[18:35] <the_Bee> is Gus a mighty hunter?
[18:35] <Temprus> hi kk
[18:35] <@KK> Ah, Shiral!  Great story, as usual.
[18:36] <@DesertRose> Darn it, Bee, you beat me to it! :D
[18:36] <Temprus> wb sarah
[18:36] <+Shiral> Thanks, KK
[18:36] <Sarah> thanks
[18:36] <@DesertRose> Shiral, the sundae bar worked.
[18:36] <@DesertRose> You'll have to set that up more often.
[18:36] <+Shiral> Very well, too
[18:36] <@KK> Yes, he's a mighty hunter.  And right now, he's hunting my rings, trying to chew them off my fingers.
[18:36] * +Shiral sends a  Sundae wafting toward KK
[18:37] <@DesertRose> LOL
[18:37] <+Shiral> Can't let those rings get away with ANYTHING
[18:37] <@DesertRose> Sweetie Pie likes to hunt toes under bed covers.
[18:37] <Sarah> lol
[18:37] <Elf> heh
[18:37] <+Shiral> You must have Ring Greeblings, Katherine
[18:37] <jemler> this little piddy went to market...
[18:37] <+Elim> Atlas is a useless cat.
[18:37] <@DesertRose> Why is Atlas useless?
[18:38] <+Elim> He's bloody huge, but doesn't "do" anything.
[18:38] <@KK> Ring Greeblings?  Do those infest rings?
[18:38] <+Elim> He just sits there and looks impressive.
[18:38] <+Shiral> Yes. Greeblings can infest ANYTHING
[18:38] <@DesertRose> Tessa doesn't do anything except walk across my keyboard when she thinks I'm not paying enough attention to her.
[18:38] <Sarah> lol
[18:38] <+Shiral> Being so tiny, and invisible to humans. Gus is valiantly trying to protect your fingers
[18:38] <+Elim> the_Bee, The circles that you find...
[18:38] <@DesertRose> Tessa is perfectly content to be a pampered house cat.
[18:39] <the_Bee> elim, in the windmills of your mind
[18:39] <@DesertRose> In my next life, I want to be Tessa.
[18:39] <+Shiral> Nina just finished a course of medication for her ear infection. She really hated that ear ointment I put in them
[18:39] <jemler> SNAFU - Situation Normal, All Felined Up!
[18:39] <@Bynw> lol
[18:39] <+Shiral> LOL
[18:39] <@DesertRose> Oh, no.  Tessa got an eye infection and I had to put ointment in her eyes.  She hated me for that.
[18:40] <@DesertRose> That's my house all right, jemler.
[18:40] <@KK> Well, I still don't know who caught and ate a squirrel on the bedroom carpet--and just left us the stomach & guts!  Probably never will!
[18:40] <@DesertRose> EW!!!
[18:40] <jemler> are you sure it wasn't a suppository?
[18:40] <+Shiral> Nobody's copping to the deed, eh?
[18:40] <+Elim> I hope you didn't step on it.
[18:40] <the_Bee> KK, any sign of Jessicat?
[18:40] <Temprus> we had a cat that would bring us half an animal every day for one week each year on her anniversery
[18:41] <@DesertRose> Oh, lovely, Temprus
[18:41] <@KK> Nope.  Ditto re the perfectly lovely but dead sparrow-sized bird I found on the floor of the breakfast room a couple of days ago.  Not a clue who did that.
[18:41] <+Shiral> Oh, that's right, I read about Poor Jessicat's disappearance.
[18:41] <@KK> No sign of Jessicat, alas.
[18:41] <+Shiral> =o(
[18:42] <@KK> The new piping neighbor I've just met has seen her, but isn't sure if it was after our last sighting, but he's going to let us know if he sees her again.
[18:42] <@DesertRose> I hope she comes back.
[18:42] <+Shiral> How untidy of them to leave it right there. Unless they were trying to save you time by depositing it right  in the breakfast room
[18:43] <@KK> I do too. 
[18:43] <Elf> How long has it been KK?
[18:43] * +Shiral hopes Jessie will return home unhurt soon
[18:43] <@KK> Well, I suppose it could have been breakfast.
[18:43] * the_Bee sends Jessicat some come-home woodgies
[18:43] <@KK> Three weeks tomorrow.
[18:43] <+Shiral> "Well, since you won't eat squirrels..."
[18:43] <jemler> what's wrong with squirrel?
[18:43] <+Shiral> Your human family is worried, Jessie, please come home!"
[18:44] <@KK> I don't think she did it--but the others are fairly dim about what we will and will not eat.  We throw away perfectly good birds, shrews, squirrel guts....
[18:44] <+Shiral> Such good providers, they are...
[18:44] <@DesertRose> I'm glad my kitty girls stay inside.
[18:45] <@KK> Yep.
[18:45] <+Shiral> Me too, DR
[18:45] <@DesertRose> The only thing they give me is cat toys when they want to play.
[18:45] <+Shiral> The worst they can do is catch bugs. =o)
[18:45] <@DesertRose> Sweetie Pie will play soccer with bottle caps.
[18:45] <jemler> and walk across your keyboard
[18:45] <@DesertRose> She tries to get them to fall into the air conditioning vent in the floor.
[18:45] <@DesertRose> That must be the goalposts.
[18:45] <@Bynw> hows the writing coming along??
[18:45] <@KK> That would be a goal....
[18:45] <jemler> she shoots, score!
[18:45] <+Shiral> Oh, yes, that. But I have some of the best disciplined drinking straw collection you'll ever find
[18:46] <@DesertRose> Sweetie Pie is one of those cats who can turn absolutely bloody anything into a kitty toy.
[18:47] <@DesertRose> Including my hair, if I lean over and my braid starts dangling.
[18:47] <jemler> get the kitty litter with no clumps
[18:47] <@KK> I have good news on that front.  Julianne sent me all the chosen submissions for the new edition of Deryni Archives, I did my editing-thing on them, and got them all back to her--so that means that, as soon as she gets it put together, you'll have a new edition of the mag--and it'll be a good one!  Some new authors this time, too, with lots of talent!
[18:47] <@DesertRose> YAY!
[18:47] <+Shiral> Whoopeeeeeee
[18:47] <Elf> Excellent! more reading material for my stack
[18:48] <jemler> alright! Where can I get back issues of that mag?
[18:48] <the_Bee> Yippee!  Will it be ready for Derynicon?
[18:48] * Sarah is now known as Sarah_Busy
[18:48] <Elf> =)
[18:48] <@KK> Oh, long before Derynicon.
[18:48] <@KK> You can get back issues from Julianne.
[18:48] <+Shiral> I believe Julianne means to have it there for sale, too
[18:48] <@KK> I'm sure she does.
[18:48] <+Shiral> You can send her a private message through Rhemuthcastle.com
[18:48] <@DesertRose> I just hope I can make it to DeryniCon.
[18:49] <+Shiral> They're also available through airsid.net
[18:49] <Elf> good woodgies going your way DR
[18:49] <the_Bee> If you make Derynicon, DR, will your fiancee come too?
[18:49] <+Shiral> Got my hotel reservations made  for Deryni Con
[18:49] <Samuel> Speaking of Derynicon......   reservations are a little slow.
[18:49] <@DesertRose> I don't know if I can drag him or not.
[18:49] <@KK> Great stories from Shiral, Sharon (Jasta Elf), Martine, a lovely Caeriessan poem from Bee....and several newcomers, as I said.
[18:49] <+Shiral> The next thing to tackle is air reservations
[18:50] <@DesertRose> He loved Two Crowns for America but I can't get him into the Deryni books, and I'm trying to get him to read Lammas Night, which is my favorite non-Deryni book of Katherine's.
[18:50] <the_Bee> It's been so long, I can't recall how my poem went. :)
[18:50] <Samuel> everyone is encouraged to register early so that we have some sort of idea of what to expect for attendance.
[18:51] <the_Bee> I'm registered, but I still have to reserve my hotel room.
[18:51] <@DesertRose> I'm just going to have to be a last minute one, because I have no idea at this point if I can make it at all.
[18:52] <+Shiral> I have to send my reg to Julianne still. :p
[18:52] <@KK> It may be small, this first year, but it will be a heck of a lot of fun!
[18:52] <@DesertRose> I would love to go but it will depend on if my disability money comes through in time.
[18:52] <+Shiral> We'll be en famille, this year.
[18:52] <+Shiral> And I'll dig my one and only item of Garb out of my closet
[18:52] <@KK> Well, that's October; one can hope!
[18:53] <@DesertRose> Yeah, hopefully it will come through by then, but I can't plan that far ahead yet.
[18:53] <+Shiral> I had this impulse to get some new garb for this year, but  I may just stick to what I have
[18:54] <the_Bee> Dr, I hope you get your money in time to get the early reservation discount
[18:54] <@KK> I also have finally gotten a proper handle on where this current, racher-fracher book starts!  Woke up with it all sorted out, and it's going great.  (The parts I've already written will slot in in their appropriate poaces, so there's little work lost.)
[18:54] <+Shiral> I hope so too
[18:54] <@DesertRose> I hope so too.
[18:54] <+Shiral> Excellent, KK
[18:54] <@DesertRose> Awesome KK.
[18:54] <+Shiral> Soo.... when does it start? =o)
[18:54] <the_Bee> cool!
[18:54] <+Shiral> You knew I had to ask....
[18:55] * @DesertRose sticks her fingers in her ears and sings "LALALALALAlA" as she hasn't finished Childe Morgan yet.
[18:55] <@KK> At Brion's birthday tourney when he's knighted--but not with the ceremony; with the tournament afterward. 
[18:55] <+Shiral> Poaces?
[18:55] <the_Bee> do you have a title, Katherine?
[18:55] <+Shiral> Excellent
[18:55] <@KK> That's ok, DR.  This is not a spoiler.  No, Bee.
[18:56] <+Shiral> So does Alaric compete in his age group?
[18:56] * @Bynw doesnt mind spoilers
[18:56] <Elf> whew KK, I am starting that series in August... no spoilers for me
[18:56] * +Shiral doesn't either
[18:57] <jemler> bynw is a spoiler sport!
[18:57] <Elf> ROFL
[18:57] <@KK> Of course.  And he has several of his cousins with him, including young Kailan Chandos.
[18:57] <+Shiral> Marvelous.
[18:57] <+Shiral> =o)
[18:57] <the_Bee> Is that short story--Swords against the Marluk?--incorporated into the novel?
[18:58] <+Shiral> I hope.... that Kailan doesn't meet a sticky end?
[18:58] <@KK> Its action is, though not the story per se.
[18:58] <@KK> If he does, it won't be until he's an adult.
[18:58] <+Shiral> Ah, okay
[18:58] <the_Bee> Do we get to meet Jehanna's relatives?
[18:59] <@KK> Oh, yes.  After all, they have to go to Bremagne for Brion to woo her, and to Meet the Parents.
[18:59] <+Shiral> So question about Bremagne, KK
[18:59] <@KK> Yes?
[18:59] <@KK> It's very French.
[18:59] <+Shiral> You have said it's like the analagous Spain.... would their be a similiar Moorish flavor to the culture as in our own Medieval Spain?
[19:00] <+Shiral> Ah...
[19:00] <the_Bee> I was disappointed that Ryol (is that his name?) didn't show up for his nephew's wedding.
[19:00] * +Shiral starts scribbling new notes re Bremagne
[19:00] <@KK> Some Spanish influence, Shiral.
[19:01] <+Shiral> So kind of a cultural mix of France and Spain?
[19:01] <the_Bee> For some reason, I picture Bremagne as having the kind of climate where orange and lime trees would flourish.
[19:01] <@KK> I'd think so.  It's still in development, but that's the way I'm leaning.
[19:01] <@KK> That's Spain and France....
[19:02] * +Shiral pictures the Royal Family of Bremagne living in a palace rather like the Alhambra in Granada
[19:02] <@KK> That could work.
[19:02] <+Shiral> =o)
[19:02] <+Shiral> Nice gardens with fountains and orange trees...
[19:03] <jemler> I would like to know more about the group in Rhamane, she Hidden Society
[19:03] <+Shiral> Maybe more "France" up North, but becoming more "Spanish" the closer you get to the Southern border...
[19:03] <+Shiral> ?
[19:03] <@KK> Rhaname may figure in this book.
[19:03] <@KK> Yes, Shiral.
[19:03] <+Shiral> Oh, excellent. =o)
[19:03] <the_Bee> remind me: what's Rhaname?
[19:04] <jemler> University Scholl attended by Michon de Courcy
[19:04] <@KK> There's an esoteric school there, and a great university.
[19:04] <the_Bee> ah, ok thanks
[19:04] <jemler> nada
[19:04] <+Shiral> Yes, I want to know more about those guys, too
[19:05] <+Shiral> And more about Azim's youth and , and and...... =o)
[19:05] <Elf> Hmm at least another book there Shiral :)
[19:06] <jemler> To bad the Council doesn't have a secretary. I would love to see the minutes of more meetings!
[19:07] <+Shiral> Poor secretary couldn't possibly write fast enough to keep up
[19:07] <+Shiral>  Unless they have a quick quotes quill
[19:07] <jemler> having a memory like Emrys' would work.
[19:08] <the_Bee> especially with those quill pens that always need dipping n the ink
[19:08] <+Shiral> Or Duncan's
[19:08] <@KK> Knowing the Council, I wouldn't be surprised if they'd figured out some way to put their "minutes" right into the Akashic record, or something similar--which might account for the fact that Camber and his kin were somehow able to tap into the information on how to get to the hidden chambers where the COuncil now meets.  Of course, that was a couple of hundred years ago, and much has been lost....
[19:09] <jemler> We'll have to ask Sir Adam.
[19:09] <+Shiral> Another couple of books there, too.
[19:09] <@KK> Yep.  Lord, give me time....!
[19:10] <the_Bee> You should clone yourself, KK
[19:10] <jemler> Don't forget to call on the Muses!
[19:10] <+Shiral> You'll just have to live forever. =o)
[19:10] <~RainbowDragon> The schola needs to discover some hidden documents that'll help bring the young deryni back into a semblance of their old knowledge.
[19:10] <jemler> Hidden in the chamber under the keeill
[19:11] <+Shiral> Well, the Michaelines could have taken a fair number of their historical records with them when they left Gwynedd
[19:11] <+Shiral> And perhaps they stowed a few things away safely while hiding from Imre
[19:11] <@KK> That's true.  And the Knights of the Anvil seem to have a lot going for them....
[19:11] <jemler> so the Incus Domini should have them, at Rhaname!
[19:11] <+Shiral> I've always thought Azim knew more than he ever really lets on. =o)
[19:12] <the_Bee> probably :)
[19:12] <@KK> Oh, yes!
[19:12] <Festil> Given the sheer number of Deryni that were thought to have fled to the Anvil of the Lord, it'd make sense.
[19:12] <Festil> Post-917.
[19:12] <+Shiral> And we know Azim is well disposed toward Kelson and Araxie...
[19:12] <+Shiral> And Rothana
[19:12] <@KK> Whoa, Festil, you always give me a start when you show up!
[19:12] <jemler> and with Jehana marrying Barrett...
[19:13] <jemler> He did the same for Ifor Haldane!
[19:13] <+Shiral> A very nasty shock, THAT was
[19:13] <the_Bee> who did?
[19:13] <@KK> Azim is a very interesting man.
[19:13] <+Shiral> Festil
[19:13] <the_Bee> ah ok
[19:14] <+Shiral>  He seems to have his fingers in a lot of different pies
[19:14] <jemler> makes fir sticky fingers ;)
[19:15] <+Shiral> Well, figuratively speaking, Jemler =oP
[19:15] <@KK> A <lot> of pies....
[19:17] <+Shiral> Do he and Brion ever meet? =o) Even if Brion doesn't remember the occasion?
[19:17] <@DesertRose> Shiral, you're trying to get her to tell the whole story in chat!  Wait for the book! :D
[19:17] <Elf> heh
[19:17] <+Shiral> Just nudging a little DR. =o)
[19:17] <@Bynw> leave Shiral be she's doing just fine
[19:17] <@KK> Dunno.  They haven't told me yet.
[19:17] <+Shiral> Okay, maybe MORE than a little....
[19:18] * @DesertRose feels chastised.
[19:18] <@KK> BRB
[19:18] <Elf> so says the other that soe not mind spoilers
[19:18] <Elf> er soe = does
[19:18] <+Shiral> Lots of pent up chat questions today, that's all. =o)
[19:18] <Elf> :)
[19:18] <@DesertRose> Yeah, now that you and she are finally here at the same time.
[19:18] <+Shiral> And not all necessarily revolving around CM. Some are just general info questions
[19:18] <@DesertRose> True
[19:18] <Elf> That is true.. I am even here for a few minutes longer
[19:18] <+Shiral> Been curious about Bremagne for years
[19:19] * +Shiral gives DR a new sundae so she won't feel chastised
[19:19] <@DesertRose> :)
[19:19] <Festil> Bremagne has frequently piqued my curiosity as well.
[19:20] <@KK> Well, you'll be finding out a <lot> about it in this book.
[19:20] * +Shiral wriggles happily
[19:21] <jemler> nice visual Shiral
[19:21] * Elf hands Shiral another Sundae
[19:21] <+Elim> Ah, something that may have been previously forgotten.
[19:21] <jemler> ypu jiggle when you wriggle! :)
[19:21] * +Elim smacks RainbowDragon with an eBook.
[19:21] <+Shiral> Oh really, no one should have more than five virtual sundaes a day..
[19:21] <@DesertRose> Oh yeah.
[19:21] <@KK> And on that note, with Shiral happily wiggling, I'll take my leave--because I <really> want to get back to that tournament!
[19:21] <jemler> tally ho!
[19:21] <@DesertRose> KK, did you authorize your books to be eBooks?
[19:21] <+Shiral> Happy Tournamenting, KK
[19:22] <Elf> ok Nice I was here to see you KK! and the rest of you!
[19:22] <@DesertRose> Because there's a website out there with your books as eBooks.
[19:22] <@KK> Not up to me.  I've asked, but the publishers have to police those.
[19:22] <+Shiral> Give Alaric a good run at  the Quintain
[19:22] <@DesertRose> Oh, okay.
[19:22] <@DesertRose> Okay, g'night KK!  Scritch the furballs from Florida.
[19:22] <Festil> Take care KK. :)
[19:22] <jemler> i don't like ebooks. i got a papercut and almost electrocuted my self!
[19:22] <the_Bee> glad you came, KK.  have fun in the tournament.  what kind is it?
[19:22] <Elf> Have a good week KK!
[19:23] <+Shiral> Summoning charms and woodgies sent out for Jessicat's safe return
[19:23] <@KK> I've now seen a kindle.  The best package so far, for electronic, but they'll never replace real ones.
[19:23] <Temprus> cya kk, be well
[19:23] <+Elim> I want a Kindle.
[19:23] <+Shiral> Have a good writing week and a good week in other respects, as well.
[19:23] <jemler> jessie come home!
[19:23] <+Elim> Have fun KK
[19:23] <@KK> Tilting at the quintain and rings, and maybe tent-pegging, for good measure.
[19:23] <the_Bee> sounds like fun!
[19:23] <+Shiral> Excellent. And I'm sure he has a good pony, too. =o)
[19:24] <@KK> No, he's still riding Cockleburr, much to his annoyance.  But he does have access to shaggy mountain ponies, when he's at Culdi with his cousins.
[19:24] <+Shiral> Ah.....
[19:25] * +Shiral thinks Alaric needs a new mount....
[19:25] <@KK> He will undoubtedly go through several, in the course of this book.
[19:25] * Elf plugs his ears
[19:25] <+Shiral> This is true
[19:26] <@KK> This ti,e I really will go.  Take care, y'all.  See you next week.
[19:26] <the_Bee> nighters, KK
[19:26] <~RainbowDragon> Have a good week, KK
[19:26] <@DesertRose> See you, KK.  Thanks for coming to see us!
[19:26] <+Shiral> Okay. Thanks for stopping in, KK. =o)
[19:26] <Elf> ciao
[19:26] * @KK steps onto her Portal, waves good night, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[19:26] <+Shiral> Nice to talk to you
[19:26] <Elf> I gotta go too, friends will be arriving shortly
[19:26] <+Shiral> Bye, Elf
[19:26] <@DesertRose> Okay, see you Elf.
[19:27] * @KK Quit (Quit: )
