KK Chat - Sept. 21, 2008
« on: September 22, 2008, 11:25:25 am »
[18:12] * KK has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[18:12] <&DeryniBot>  The smell from Wrengl's kitchen draws KK into the chat.
[18:12] <jemler> KK!
[18:13] <Sarah> Its KK!
[18:13] <Dov> Correct, DB.
[18:13] <Sarah> hi kk
[18:13] <@KK> Hello, guys!
[18:13] <Dov> Welcome Katherine!
[18:13] <@Bynw> hiyas KK
[18:13] <@KK> How's everyone been?
[18:13] <jemler> we're celebrating Sarah's diet!
[18:13] * @Bynw is great
[18:13] <@KK> Celebrating a diet?!
[18:13] <jemler> Talking about food!
[18:14] <Dov> Good, made it through Ike with minimal damage.
[18:14] <Sarah> lol
[18:14] <~RainbowDragon> Greetings, KK!
[18:14] <@KK> Ah, then you're tormenting the dieter.
[18:14] <+Shiral> Hello Katherine
[18:14] <Sarah> oh yes.
[18:14] <@KK> Ike was pretty ferocious.
[18:14] <+Shiral> Hello Katherine
[18:14] <Sarah> oh yes.
[18:14] <@KK> Ike was pretty ferocious.
[18:14] <Sarah> Cuz my diet doesnt start until tomorow
[18:14] <Sarah> Yeah.
06[18:14] * +Shiral produces sliced apples
[18:14] <+Elim> Diet my foot.
[18:14] <@KK> Hi, Shiral.
[18:14] <jemler> I figure we're making her sweat, with all the willpower she must be using to stop herself from going to the frig!
[18:14] <Sarah> lol
[18:15] <+Elim> Morning KK.
[18:15] <Sarah> Hey Shiral, can i have some of those?
06[18:15] * +Shiral passes Sarah the Apples
[18:15] <Sarah> oh and Jemler, there is nothing in my fridge to eat, 'cept my yogurt.
[18:15] <Sarah> Nummy, apples. /me stuffs a piece in her mouth.
[18:15] <+Shiral> How's life in  hopefully hurricane-less Virginia?
06[18:15] * jemler waves licorice under Sarah's nose
[18:16] <Sarah> ew.
[18:16] <jemler> :)
[18:16] <jemler> Chocolate chip cookies?
[18:16] <+Shiral> Jeez, if I ever go on a diet, I won't tell any of you guys?
[18:16] * Sarah wonders if she could swing some hot fudge sauce for her apples...
[18:16] <Sarah> lol
[18:16] * jemler ducks
[18:16] <+Elim> White rice fluffed and chilled, chopped apple, a sprinkle of lemon juice, coconut milk,  cinnamon, combine, and serve.
[18:16] <Sarah> EW. What is that supposed to be?
[18:17] <@KK> That sounds good, Elim.  (Gus is trying to eat my rings!)
[18:17] <Sarah> lol
[18:17] <~RainbowDragon> Poor hungry, Gus
[18:17] <+Shiral> Gus is on a Gold Diet?
[18:17] <Sarah> LOL
[18:17] <jemler> Sarah, I have some carrots here
[18:17] <@KK> It's the Diamond Standard!
[18:17] <+Elim> Actually I got the idea from my cousin who is half Vietnamese.
[18:17] <Sarah> Ew. im not a rabbit, Jemler.
[18:17] <jemler> Kitty Karats?
[18:18] <@KK> He's gonna chip a tooth, one of these days.
[18:18] <Sarah> lol
[18:18] <jemler> don't you have a rabbit?
[18:18] <Sarah> I do.
[18:18] <+Shiral> I hope it doesn't give him tummy stones
[18:18] <Dov> That sounds all right, Elim, definitely Asian.
[18:18] <Sarah> aw.
[18:18] <@KK> Re Ike. we only got some rain from the one before.
[18:18] <+Shiral> Good
[18:19] <Dov> BTW, Sarah, yogurt is good on baked potatoes instead of sour cream.
[18:19] <+Elim> She fixed black eyed peas and rice once, only it was dessert.
[18:19] <Sarah> Ew, Dov, why would i want to kill the flavor using that stuff on my tater?
[18:19] <~RainbowDragon> black eyed peas for dessert?
[18:19] <+Elim> It was actually really good, strangely.
[18:19] <Sarah> lol
[18:19] <Sarah> its good.
[18:19] <+Elim> RainbowDragon, had coconut milk.
[18:20] <+Elim> So it was sweet.
[18:20] <~RainbowDragon> oh, okay
[18:20] <jemler> How do you milk a coconut? Squeezing doesn't work to well.
[18:20] <Sarah> you break it over a rock. :D
[18:21] <jemler> You'd spill it.
[18:21] <+Elim> You poke it's eye out.
[18:21] <Sarah> well, if you didnt want to spill it, you'd go buy some
[18:21] * +Shiral thinks "not my idea of dessert"
[18:21] <Dov> I think coconut milk is the pulp grated very fine and mixed with the coconut water.
[18:21] <Sarah> in a carton or jug.
[18:21] <Sarah> me either shiral but black eyed peas over rice is good.
[18:21] <~RainbowDragon> That's what I was gonna say. My dad used to take a hammer and a sterilized screw driver and poke the coconut to get its milk.
[18:22] <+Shiral> I'll take your word for it
[18:22] <Sarah> lol
[18:22] * Temprus has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[18:22] <&DeryniBot> Hi there Temprus! Welcome to the chat.
[18:22] <jemler> Hi Temprus
[18:22] <Dov> Hi Temprus
[18:22] <Temprus> Greets
[18:22] <~RainbowDragon> Hi, Temprus, you're just in time for KK's visit.
[18:22] <Temprus> So I see
[18:22] <Sarah> Shiral, minus the coconut milk. :)
[18:22] <Sarah> hi temprus
[18:22] <~RainbowDragon> We're talking about coconuts and various other edibles
[18:23] <Temprus> howdy
[18:23] <Sarah> Mainly because they are maikng fun of me Cuz im going on a diet.
[18:23] <jemler> She says there is something about her tummy, but she won't show us with bynw here! :)
[18:24] <@KK> My dad used to slam the cocoanut on the pavement until the husk cracked, then used a screwdriver to pry off the husk--and poked a hole in the "eye" to get the milk out.  And then we'd crack upen the actual nut and eat the fresh cocoanut.  Much better than the dried stuff that's commercially available, which I don't like.
[18:24] * Dov hugs Sarah. Didn't mean to tease you, honest.
[18:24] <Sarah> lol
[18:24] <Sarah> i'm not worried.
[18:24] <Sarah> Diet time isn't until tomorow
[18:25] <Temprus> one should never tease a lady about her tummy
[18:25] <Sarah> lol
[18:25] <Sarah> thank you
06[18:25] * Sarah hugs Dov.
06[18:25] * Sarah then hugs Temprus.
[18:25] <Dov> Quite so Temprus.
[18:25] <jemler> suck up
[18:25] <jemler> :)
[18:25] <Sarah> LOL
[18:26] <jemler> KK i have a question for you re; ITKS
[18:26] <@KK> Yes?
[18:27] <jemler> You called Jessamy, Jessamy ferch Lewys. What does ferch mean?
[18:27] <@KK> Daughter.
[18:27] <~RainbowDragon> in french?
[18:28] <jemler> never heard of it before. Although I did find out how Jehana was related to Lewys ap Norfal.
[18:28] <@KK> Welsh.
[18:28] <~RainbowDragon> ahhh
[18:28] <@KK> It's like Nic in Scots or Irish gaelic.
[18:28] * Sarah whispers..."Ambush is going to be so mad at me..."
[18:29] <+Shiral> Nic?
[18:29] <@KK> Ferch
[18:29] * jemler whispers..."I won't tell"
[18:29] <Sarah> brb
[18:29] <Dov> Do you have a working title for the third volume of CM?
[18:29] <@KK> Not yet.
[18:30] <~RainbowDragon> How has writing been going?
[18:31] * the_Bee has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[18:31] <&DeryniBot> The smell from Wrengl's kitchen draws the_Bee into the chat.
[18:31] <~RainbowDragon> Hi Bee
[18:31] <Dov> Hi Bee.
[18:31] <the_Bee> hi Dov and RD
[18:32] <jemler> Hi Bee
[18:32] <@KK> Not well at all.  The days evaporate.  But I've worked hard this weekend to clear my desk for action starting tomorrow....
[18:32] <the_Bee> hi jemler
[18:32] <+Shiral> Hi Jemler
[18:32] <+Shiral> Hi Bee, I mean
[18:32] <+Shiral> Getting confused
[18:33] <the_Bee> that's ok
[18:33] <jemler> Did you forget I was here Shiral?
[18:33] <+Shiral> I must have
[18:33] <+Shiral> Strange, when you're memorable...
[18:33] <jemler> I was voted most likely to be forgotten in high school, not life!
[18:33] <the_Bee> heheheh
[18:34] <jemler> Seriously, the only way I stood out was by standing in!
[18:34] <the_Bee> in what?
[18:34] <Sarah> lol im back
[18:34] <jemler> usually the way of someone else!
[18:35] <Sarah> Sounds liek me
[18:35] <Sarah> liek*
[18:35] <Sarah> like****
[18:35] <the_Bee> rented fingers, sarah?
[18:35] <Sarah> lol
[18:36] <+Elim> Nope, she never returned them to the library.
[18:36] <jemler> Sarah, try switching hands when you type, or turn the keyboard upside down :)
[18:36] <Sarah> LOL
06[18:36] * +Shiral wants to see the relationship between Morgan and Brion.... but no pressure...
[18:36] <Sarah> first i have to find a library
[18:36] <Sarah> lol
02[18:36] * Ghostgames has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[18:36] <&DeryniBot> Gwynedd's Sheriff, Marnin, nods to Ghostgames and checks their weapons at the door.
[18:36] <the_Bee> hi Ann!
[18:36] <Ghostgames> Hi, all!
[18:36] <jemler> Hello Ghostgames
[18:36] <Temprus> Hi Ann, Bee
[18:37] <~RainbowDragon> I want to see how KK does his empowering
[18:37] <@KK> Hi, Ann.
[18:37] <@Bynw> Brion's, RD?
[18:37] <Temprus> In High School, I was Voted Most Often Missing From the Yearbook  ;D
[18:37] <Sarah> lol
[18:37] <jemler> isn't that covered in Swords against the Marluk?
[18:37] <Dov> So do I, RD. <<And we thought /Brion's/ power ritual was obscure...>>
[18:38] <~RainbowDragon> Yeah... I thought she said before that she was going to embellish it a bit. Will it still involve a ring?
[18:38] <Sarah> My yearbook picture this year sucks horribly
[18:38] <+Elim> Temprus, Interesting, I never appeared in a year book.
[18:38] <Temprus> I was in only one of the JR editions
[18:38] * deryni_guest6502 has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[18:38] <&DeryniBot> Gwynedd's Sheriff, Marnin, nods to deryni_guest6502 and checks their weapons at the door.
[18:38] <Temprus> somehow mine always got lost :D
[18:39] <jemler> My yearbook pictures all came out great. I wasn't in any of them!
[18:39] <Sarah> lol
[18:39] <Temprus> Since they were supposed to be made off our ID pics, I know they took them :D
[18:39] <jemler> hi guest
[18:39] * @Bynw wonders if there will ever be audio books of the Deryni
[18:40] <@KK> Swords Against the Marluk was the first shorter piece that I wrote, and it may not remain canon; too soon to tell.
[18:40] <+Shiral> Hi Bynw
[18:40] <+Shiral> Hi Ann
[18:40] * the_Bee is waiting for guest to reveal his/her secret identity.
[18:40] <+Elim> Bynw, I don't know, but I spent like an hour and a half orating Deryni Rising the other night.
[18:40] <@KK> Bynw, as I understand it, the books have most of them been done for the blind, so they must exist out there somewhere.
[18:40] <jemler> I haven't found it yet, stuill looking
[18:41] * Sarah settles in beside the_Bee...
[18:43] <jemler> and hush settles over the cyberscape....
[18:44] <Sarah> lol
[18:44] * Sarah tosses a waterballoon at jemler.
[18:44] <Sarah> :D
[18:44] <jemler> thanks for the bath, sarah!
[18:45] <Sarah> Um, deryni_guest6502, may i have the pleasure of your name?
[18:45] <Sarah> No problem, jemler.
[18:45] <Temprus> At least once a year, that is not too much to ask ;D
[18:45] <+Shiral> Well, she might have tossed a water MELON instead, Jemler. =o)
[18:45] <Sarah> lol
[18:46] <+Elim> Round here that would be a real threat.
[18:46] <jemler> don't give her ideas shiral. And Temprus, I already had my bath this year! :)
[18:46] <Sarah> I have a smaller sized on sitting on my porch right now.
06[18:46] * +Shiral sends her cat to wash Jemler
[18:46] <Sarah> lol
12[18:47] * deryni_guest6502 Quit
[18:47] <Temprus> Poor cat, that is inhumane!
[18:47] <jemler> I guess we'll never know his/her name.
[18:48] <Sarah> hmm. guess not
[18:48] <~RainbowDragon> I guess the guest was too shy, Sarah
[18:48] <jemler> Not really, my dog loves cats
[18:48] <the_Bee> I hope we didn't scare them away
[18:48] <Sarah> Me too.
[18:48] <+Shiral> Our GOH is quiet today, too
[18:48] <+Elim> There isn't enough spatula.
[18:48] <Sarah> GOH?
[18:48] <~RainbowDragon> guest of honor
[18:48] <+Elim> Guest of honor.
[18:49] <Sarah> oh
[18:49] <Dov> I'm going to attend to other stuff now. Thanks for coming by, Katherine. Blessings, all.
[18:49] * Sarah gives Elim a new shiny Spatula.
[18:49] <the_Bee> by dov
[18:49] <Sarah> toodles Dov.
[18:50] <~RainbowDragon> Bye Dov, Happy New Year
[18:50] <jemler> bye dov
[18:50] <Ghostgames> bye, dov!
[18:50] <@KK> Bye, Dov.
[18:50] <+Shiral> Bye, Dov
[18:50] <+Shiral> Happy Honeycake Baking
[18:50] * Dov Quit
[18:51] <the_Bee> any new word on DA zine?
[18:52] <~RainbowDragon> Any new word on a new zipper sister column?
[18:52] <@KK> You'd have to ask Julianne.  I've edited everything she's sent me; I think there may be one more piece.  But I know she's been worrying about the overage for the cancelled Derynicon.
[18:52] <+Shiral> All I've heard about DA is that Julianne's working on the next issue
[18:53] <@KK> BTW, we're a little over halfway to bailing her and Frank out from the deposits they won't get back from the hotel.
[18:54] <jemler> How much did they spend?
[18:54] <the_Bee> Are you collecting contributions for the bailout?
[18:54] <@KK> Sad that we weren't able to get our collective acts together, but those who can come for the weekend anyway will still have fun, I think.
[18:54] <the_Bee> anyone going in costume?
[18:55] <@KK> I think the total was around $2700--and yes, contributions are welcome.
[18:55] <+Shiral> Most appreciatively received
[18:55] <the_Bee> where do we send them? and how?  paypal?
[18:56] <+Shiral> I think there's information posted on the yahoo Deryni Con group
[18:56] <+Shiral> Don't think Julianne has Paypal
[18:56] <the_Bee> thanks, I'll check it out.
[18:56] <Ghostgames> Send to:
[18:56] <@KK> Checks are fine.
[18:56] <Ghostgames> Julianne Toomey-Kautz, (note from RD: Julianne's address has been deleted for privacy concerns. If you'd like to donate money to her, e-mail me at rainbowdragon (at) otherworlders (dot) org)
[18:57] <+Shiral> Oops, gotta go
[18:57] <Ghostgames> bye, Shiral!
[18:57] <+Shiral> One of those darn work days
[18:57] <@KK> Bye, Shiral.
[18:57] <jemler> night, shiral
[18:57] <Sarah> bye shiral
[18:57] <+Elim> Night Shiral
[18:57] * +Shiral waves farewell, steps onto her portal and disappears in a cloud of blue steam
[18:57] <the_Bee> nighters shiral
[18:57] <@KK> I think a lot of us are going to wear costume to the Renn Faire on Saturday.
[18:57] <Ghostgames> I'd rather have a work day today than an animal emergency room day like I had. :-(
[18:57] <+Shiral> DARN it! Transfer portal is still not working right! Stupid repair mages!
[18:57] <Ghostgames> I'm sorry I won't be able to come....
[18:57] <the_Bee> what happened?
[18:57] <Sarah> uh oh...
[18:58] <+Shiral> BYE
[18:58] <@KK> Argh!  What animal emergency this time, Ann?
[18:58] * +Shiral Quit
[18:58] <Ghostgames> Brandy and I had a good time at a training class this morning, and she slept in the car while I had lunch with my trainer friend who runs the class...
[18:58] <Ghostgames> but when we got home she tried to pick up a water bottle in the back of the car to carry it in for me and yelped.
[18:59] <the_Bee> ??
[18:59] <Sarah> uh oh!
[18:59] <Ghostgames> (it was an empty water bottle, that I'd put some treats in -- she hadn't finished teasing them out of the bottle while she was in the car but I thought it was because she'd had so many treats during class!)
[18:59] <the_Bee> and...?
[19:00] <Ghostgames> She seemed like she wasn't feeling all that well, so I thought maybe a tummy ache -- but then an hour later she got up from where she was lying down to follow Nico and Paul out to the back yard -- and yelped again. And again when Nico crowded her at the door.
[19:00] <Ghostgames> She was really upset, but I couldn't figure out /where/ she hurt.
[19:00] <Ghostgames> so off to the emergency center.
[19:01] <~RainbowDragon> What did they find out?
[19:01] <Ghostgames> turns out she (most likely) has a "retrobulbar abcess" behind her eye (it was a little droopy & weepy this morning, I figured some sort of eye infection and was going to take her to our regular vet tomorrow).
[19:01] <Sarah> oh noes!
[19:01] <the_Bee> ouch! poor baby!
[19:01] <Ghostgames> So she's undergoing anesthesia so they can go in orally and try to find it & lance it & clean it... pain meds & antibiotics but I should be able to pick her up about 10pm to bring her home.
[19:02] <Ghostgames> I'm sure she'd rather be home and in a bit of pain than in the hospital on the heavy-duty IV pain meds....
[19:02] <@KK> Good grief!
[19:02] * the_Bee sends get-well woodgies to Brandy
[19:02] <Ghostgames> One of those scary things that /should/ turn out fine....
[19:02] <@KK> Poor baby!
[19:02] <Ghostgames> It turns out that a hallmark of a retrobulbar abcess in a dog is... sharp pain when opening the jaw.
[19:03] <Ghostgames> They think I caught it early (her eye was fine last night)...
[19:03] <the_Bee> what causes it?
[19:04] <Ghostgames> Usually foreign matter that migrates behind the eye through the mouth (chewing on dry sticks, for example, which she sometimes does but I haven't seen her do recently)....
[19:04] <Ghostgames> Could also be caused by a systemic infection but they didn't see any signs of that in her bloodwork.
[19:05] <the_Bee> hope she'll make a full recovery
[19:08] <Ghostgames> she certainly should....
[19:08] <Ghostgames> I'll be calling for an update in a bit.
[19:09] <Ghostgames> Anyhow, I'm sorry I won't be able to be at "DeryniFest" and the Ren Faire....
[19:09] <jemler> well folks, i'm gonna take off for the evening. Nice to see you KK, thanks.
[19:09] <the_Bee> seeya jemler
[19:09] <~RainbowDragon> bye, jemler
[19:09] <Ghostgames> good night, jemler!
[19:09] <Sarah> bye jemler
[19:10] <jemler> nite sarah.
[19:10] <@KK> I'd better shove off, too.  Gotta throw something together for supper.
[19:10] <Temprus> cya, thanks for coming by
[19:10] <the_Bee> glad you came
[19:10] <jemler> not watermelon, that's for sarah!
[19:10] <~RainbowDragon> Thanks for stopping by, Katherine.
[19:10] <Ghostgames> bye, KK!
[19:11] <@KK> I hope to have more positive news next week.
[19:11] <Ghostgames> me, too. ;-)
[19:11] <jemler> good luck Ann
06[19:11] * @KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[19:11] <jemler> bye
12[19:11] * jemler Quit
12[19:11] * @KK Quit
