KK Chat - 7 Sept 2008
« on: September 07, 2008, 07:05:03 pm »
[19:27] * KK has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[19:27] <&DeryniBot>  Gwynedd's Sheriff, Marnin, nods to KK and checks their weapons at the door.
[19:27] * DeryniBot sets mode: +o KK
[19:27] <jemler> KK!
[19:27] <the_Bee> Hello KK!!
[19:27] <~RainbowDragon> Greetings, KK
[19:27] <Samuel> Hello KK
[19:27] <@KK> Hello, Troopers.
[19:27] <the_Bee> how was dragoncon?
[19:28] <Festil> Hey KK
[19:28] <@KK> Dragoncon was good.  Huge.  Excellent weather for Atlanta.  Did I say huge?
[19:28] <jemler> somewhere in there!
[19:29] <@Bynw> did you get a chance to goto the Abby this time??
[19:29] <the_Bee> who is Abby?
[19:29] <@KK> Someone said there were 45,000.  I doubt that, but there were at least 15,000-20,000, I expect.
[19:29] <@KK> What abby?
[19:29] <@Bynw> the_Bee, the Abby isnt a who its a what
[19:30] <the_Bee> :)
[19:30] <@Bynw> The restaraunt on Ponce in Atlanta that we wanted to take you to back in 2000 when you were at D*C
[19:30] <@Bynw> you missed it due to your flight being messed up
[19:31] <@KK> Ah.  No.  No one mentioned it, and I'd forgotten.  Also, our car was taken away by parking minions when we arrived, and we didn't see it again until Tuesday morning.
[19:31] <@Bynw> ack
[19:32] <@KK> But that's ok.  Scott's cousins were there, so we also got to hang out with them. And then we visited friends on the way back, in SC.
[19:33] <@KK> The big but sad news, though, which Samuel may already have mentioned, is that we've had to pull the pin on Derynicon.  Just not enough people sent in their memberships.
[19:33] <@KK> We may try again in 2010, which would be the 40th anniversary of the first book.
[19:33] <the_Bee> :(
[19:34] <@KK> Meanwhile, some of us will still gather in Harrisburg and have an unofficial con-lette.
[19:34] <the_Bee> I'll be there!.  My plane ticket is nonrefundable.
[19:34] <Samuel> I mentioned it.....  but not everyone was here when I did.
[19:35] <the_Bee> Does this mean Julianne and Frank will lose thre money?
[19:35] <@KK> I think there are a number of people in that position, so we should have a jolly time anyway.  (I just spoke to Frank before coming online, so that's the most up-to-date info.)
[19:35] <@KK> Yes, but we don't yet know how much the total will be.  I think many of us will pony up some cash to lessen the bite.
[19:36] <@KK> I think it's the economy, the fact that it's an election year, an unfortunate convergence of other obligations for that weekend....a lot of things.
[19:36] <@KK> But the bite could be as much as $1500.  Yike!
[19:36] <@DesertRose> Owie
[19:37] <the_Bee> So is anyone here still going?
[19:37] <@DesertRose> Well, as I posted on rhemuthcastle, I can't afford to go, sadly.
[19:37] <the_Bee> :(
[19:37] <@KK> Scott and I, Samuel, you, Bee.  And several others have expressed their intention to still come.
[19:38] <Samuel> I'll be there.  it's actualy between me and work.
[19:38] <the_Bee> A Deryni House Party
[19:38] <@KK> Frank has mentioned maybe going to the Penn. Rennfaire, which could be fun.
[19:38] <@KK> Yep.
[19:38] <the_Bee> is that nearby?
[19:38] <@KK> Yes.
[19:38] <the_Bee> :)
[19:39] <the_Bee> why 2010? why bot 2009?
[19:39] <the_Bee> or not
[19:39] * JastaElf has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[19:39] <&DeryniBot>  Gwynedd's Sheriff, Marnin, nods to JastaElf and checks their weapons at the door.
[19:40] <@DesertRose> Jasta!
[19:40] <the_Bee> Jasta!!!
[19:40] <JastaElf> Wow, it worked.  :)
[19:40] <jemler> Jasta!
[19:40] * @DesertRose tackle-hugs JastaElf
[19:40] <JastaElf> Aww! 
[19:40] * JastaElf hugs back
[19:40] <@KK> Because DR came out in 1970, so that's the 40-year anniversary.
[19:40] <JastaElf> Hi everyone!
[19:40] <the_Bee> ah ok
[19:40] <JastaElf> Hi KK!
[19:40] <@KK> Hi, Jasta!
[19:40] <JastaElf> Sorry to interrupt, y'all just keep talking.  :)
[19:41] <@KK> We're discussing the fact that Derynicon has had to be cancelled, and how many people will still be coming, since they have plane tickets, etc.
[19:41] <JastaElf> *nods*  I'll be there no matter what.  :)
[19:41] <the_Bee> We were discussing a mini-con at harrisburg to replacederynicon
[19:42] <JastaElf> MiniDerynicon?  :)
[19:42] <the_Bee> conlette
[19:42] <@KK> A Deryni house party, actually.
[19:42] <JastaElf> Ooo, house party... I like that idea!
[19:42] <jemler> Invite Kidd and Play
[19:43] <@KK> I think it will still be fun.
[19:43] <the_Bee> who?
[19:43] <jemler> it's a movie called House Party
[19:43] <Samuel> with everyone that said "I'll be there" my house is already too small for this house party.      :(
[19:43] <JastaElf> It's sad that the con fell through, yes... but the house party will be fun.
[19:43] <the_Bee> the hotel should be big enough
[19:43] <JastaElf> We could move it to my house.  *crosses fingers*
[19:43] * @Bynw is saddly on the list that cannot come
[19:44] * JastaElf hugs Bynw
[19:44] * @DesertRose hugs Bynw.
[19:44] * @Bynw likes hugs
[19:44] <@DesertRose> We'll have a DeryniConlette pity party here for those who can't go to Harrisburg.
[19:44] <~RainbowDragon> It's JASTA!
[19:44] * ~RainbowDragon hugs Jasta
[19:44] * the_Bee makes bynw some honey to sweeten the disappointment
[19:44] * jemler shakes Bynw's hand
[19:44] <JastaElf> Hi RD!
[19:44] * JastaElf hugs RD
[19:46] <~RainbowDragon> Simon says everybody talk at once!
[19:46] <@DesertRose> talk talk talk
[19:46] <JastaElf> LOL!
[19:46] <@KK> So, Jasta, does it look like you're going to get the new house?
[19:46] <jemler> Who's Simon?
[19:46] <JastaElf> KK, we're hoping to hear tomorrow.
[19:47] <@KK> Fingers crossed and prayer wheels flying!
[19:47] <JastaElf> Or at least before mid-week.  I am SO terrified and excited....
[19:47] <the_Bee> House? where?
[19:47] <JastaElf> I put an offer on a house on Friday.
[19:47] <the_Bee> cool!
[19:47] <JastaElf> It's right next door to where my horse is boarded.  I can see him from the back deck if I squint.  :)
[19:47] <JastaElf>  pics are here
[19:47] <the_Bee> how is Jasper?
[19:47] <JastaElf> He's doing GREAT!
[19:48] <JastaElf> The trainer is very happy with him.  And I adore him.  :)
[19:48] <@KK> But she isn't excited--naaah!
[19:48] * JastaElf grins
[19:48] <the_Bee> Jasper the Giant Pony
[19:49] <JastaElf> Turns out he has this natural, floaty extended trot that makes everyone love riding him.
[19:49] <JastaElf> The dressage rider who lives down one street from where I hope to be living--she offers me money for him at least once a month.
[19:49] <JastaElf> Ain't happening.  ;)
[19:51] * JastaElf drops a pin
[19:51] <@DesertRose> *CRASH*
[19:51] <JastaElf> LOL!
[19:51] <jemler> what was that sound!?
[19:51] * Samuel picks the pen up and hands it back to Jasta
[19:52] <JastaElf> *grin*
[19:52] <Samuel> Those things are dangerous!  We have authors around here!
[19:52] <JastaElf> I have GOT to stop eating marzipan covered in dark chocolate.  *shakes head*
[19:52] <jemler> Drop a sword next time
[19:52] <JastaElf> The pen is mightier than the sword...  LOL!
[19:52] <the_Bee> or an anvil
[19:53] <JastaElf> Iron, cold iron is the master of us all...
[19:53] * JastaElf is channeling Kipling...
[19:53] <@DesertRose> I like Kipling's poetry but his prose doesn't do much for me.
[19:53] <JastaElf> I like some of his prose.
[19:53] <Samuel> speaking of horses, Drey and Devon had to put one of there horses down this weekend
[19:53] <the_Bee> "we be of one blood, ye and I."
[19:54] <JastaElf> Excellent quote, Bee...
[19:54] * JastaElf sends sympathy hugs to Drey and Devon...
[19:54] <the_Bee> sad. was it ill or injured?
[19:54] <@KK> Oh, no!  Which one?
[19:55] <Samuel> Hamdan.....  Drey's Arabian.  It injured it's hindquarter and it just didn't heal.
[19:55] <~RainbowDragon> Who are Drey and Devon?
[19:55] <JastaElf> Oh no...  :(
[19:55] <@KK> How sad!
[19:55] <Samuel> started getting worse.  so, they took its pain away perminately
[19:55] <JastaElf> *nods*  Kind, but hard...
[19:56] <the_Bee> the kind thing to do
[19:56] <@KK> Still, it's tough.
[19:56] <Samuel> RD: they are friends of several people here.  We all end up at Darkover most years.
[19:57] <~RainbowDragon> Oh, okay.
[19:57] <@KK> Utter bummer.
[19:58] <Samuel> yea.  Drey loved that horse.
[19:58] <the_Bee> how many horses do they have left?  just one?
[19:59] <Samuel> 3 now.
[19:59] <the_Bee> ah.
[19:59] <Festil> Alrighty, folks. The Interregnum will return after a brief intermission.
[19:59] * Festil waves.
[19:59] <@DesertRose> Smart aleck.
[19:59] <@DesertRose> :)
[19:59] <Festil> :)
[20:00] <Festil> See you soon.
[20:00] * Festil Quit (Quit: Iehi Aour)
[20:00] <the_Bee> any news on the kitty front?
[20:00] <@DesertRose> Has the Jessicat ever shown back up?
[20:01] <@KK> Nope.  Just the ofur now--and Oswald,of course.
[20:01] <@KK> four
[20:01] <the_Bee> I hope Jessicat's found a happy new home.
[20:03] <@KK> So do I.  Can't do anything about it, though, so just have to wish her well.
[20:04] <the_Bee> how are the others doing?
[20:05] <@KK> They're fine.  Everybody got zapped for fleas today, so they're not too happy with me--even though it was just drops at the back of the nexk.  It feels creepy as it trickles on their skin, I guess.
[20:06] <@KK> Anyway, I've gotta go put together sone supper for the Scott.  Hope to see you all next week.
[20:06] <jemler> After they go thru, they look at you and think "You're next!"
[20:06] <@DesertRose> We'll be here!
[20:06] <JastaElf> yup!
[20:06] <@KK> Take care, all.
[20:06] <the_Bee> Melantha got her shots updated.  The vet says she's fat.
[20:06] <jemler> nite kk
[20:06] <@DesertRose> You, too, KK.  Have a good week.
[20:06] <the_Bee> goodnight, KK
[20:06] * @KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[20:07] * @KK Quit (Quit: )
"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.)
