KK Chat - April 13, 2003

[16:48] <DeryniBot> The King's Seneschal - KK - arrives in DeryniChat
[16:48] <Mistyck> hi KK
[16:48] <the_Bee> and hello all cats and dogs
[16:49] <Shiral>  Hello Katherine
[16:49] <Ghostgames> Well, that answers that question. :-)
[16:49] <kirienne> hi Katherine
[16:49] <RainbowDragon> Greetings, Katherine!
[16:49] <KK> Hello, all.
[16:49] <RainbowDragon> Hi, Jasta
[16:49] <the_Bee> hi to you too, Katherine
[16:49] <Mistyck> how was your week, Katherine?
[16:49] <VirtualBabe> Light traffic today, maybe some are still in church. Today's a long service.
[16:49] <JastaElf> Hi KK!
[16:49] <Shiral> Hi Jasta, Ann, Mistyck Kirienne <RD Bee, and VB and Pat
[16:49] <VirtualBabe> Hi Katherine
[16:49] <KK> Er--interesting.
[16:49] <RainbowDragon> Hi, Shiral
[16:49] <the_Bee> dare we ask? 
[16:49] <Mistyck> Hmmm...
[16:49] <JastaElf> Interesting... good?  Or interesting.... bad?
[16:50] <KK> Well, I spent most of two days doing my tax figures. Yuck!
[16:50] <Shiral> Or just life?
[16:50] <Mistyck> oh, yuck!
[16:50] <Shiral> Definitely yuck
[16:50] <kirienne> that is never fun
[16:50] <VirtualBabe> Yuck!X2
[16:50] <KK> I didn't get around to riding, because I couldn't find my helmet--and I had other things to do.
[16:50] <Shiral> Death and Taxes, can't ever get away
[16:50] <the_Bee> at least I din't have to pay anything
[16:50] <kirienne> that's good Bee
[16:51] <DeryniBot> Father Joram MacRorie welcomes Barticus
[16:51] <VirtualBabe> How are taxes in Ireland?
[16:51] <Shiral> Hello Bart
[16:51] <kirienne> Hi Bart
[16:51] <KK> But Jessie will be happy to hear that I started working on the Annales.
[16:51] <Barticus> howdy all
[16:51] <KK> They were US taxes.
[16:51] <Shiral> =o)
[16:51] <JastaElf> Hi bart!
[16:51] <the_Bee> hiya bart
[16:51] <kirienne> yippie
[16:51] <KK> Hi, Bart.
[16:51] <RainbowDragon> KK: was the standard attire for all the King's Rangers the ciphered leather doublet and thigh-high boots that signified his office, plus a cockade of egret feathers jutting from the crown of his green leather hunt cap
[16:51] * Barticus waves to all an d KK
[16:51] <VirtualBabe> EWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!
[16:52] <KK> That was probably the ideal, but uniforms as such were just starting to catch on, I expect.
[16:52] <RainbowDragon> Okay
[16:52] <JastaElf> Don't like the uniform, VB?  Or that was in ref. to taxes?  :-)
[16:52] <Shiral> Or taxes on uniforms?
[16:52] <VirtualBabe> Katherine having to pay US taxes when she lives in ireland :-(
[16:53] <Mistyck> also, KK, was there a monogram/device on the doublet?
[16:53] <the_Bee> remember Derry got caught by the Torenthi because he had the wrong color buskins
[16:53] <JastaElf> Understood, VB.,  But I bet it's pro-rated.  :-)
[16:53] <KK> The week wasn't all yuck, though.  Wednesday we finally made it to the Russian restaurant, and it was only ok--and then we found the car clamped when we came out.
[16:53] <RainbowDragon> How did one become a member of the Rangers?   
[16:53] <Barticus> dumb question KK are you still an American citizen?
[16:53] <KK> Yes, Bart.
[16:53] <JastaElf> Oh, Poor KK!!
[16:53] <Shiral> Clamped?
[16:53] <JastaElf> booted
[16:54] <KK> Yep.
[16:54] <Mistyck> yikes!
[16:54] <KK> E80 later....
[16:54] <kirienne> ouch
[16:54] <Mistyck> yep
[16:54] <VirtualBabe> that sucks totally katherine
[16:54] <Ghostgames> So how does this not qualify as "yuck"?
[16:54] <JastaElf> OMG...
[16:55] <Shiral> Clamped as in, somebody had done a hit and run?
[16:55] <kirienne> why would they do that to your car KK?
[16:55] <KK> And it was a ch*cken-sh*t ticket, after 10 PM on a weeknight, with the wheels overlapping a double yellow line about a foot.
[16:55] <Shiral> ah,
[16:55] <Shiral> okay
[16:55] <JastaElf> Oh jeez....
[16:55] <VirtualBabe> some cop trying to make his quota
[16:55] <JastaElf> revenue enhancement squad....  :-(
[16:55] <Shiral> I  was unfamiliar with the term
[16:55] <Mistyck> jeez
[16:55] <KK> Immobilization boot, so you can't move it until the clamp is taken off.
[16:56] <Shiral> Definitely a pain
[16:56] <KK> Private clamping company.
[16:56] <JastaElf> How do you get the boot off THAT late at night??
[16:56] <kirienne> I think the traffic cop was in a verra nasty mood, he must be related to Loris
[16:56] <KK> We weren't blocking anything--and at 10 PM....
[16:56] <Mistyck> yep...a mean cop
[16:56] <kirienne> or the traffic company is owned by Loris
[16:56] <VirtualBabe> You need to get the person with the key to unlock it
[16:57] <the_Bee> and you have to pay
[16:57] <JastaElf> Oy...
[16:57] <KK> You call them and they come--the same guys who clamped it.  And we'd seen the van go past the restaurant as we were finishing our dessert.  Obviously they'd just come from clamping us.  :-(
[16:57] * Barticus hasn't seen the boot since his Big easy days
[16:57] <the_Bee> I thought clamping was reserved for multiple offenses
[16:57] <JastaElf> Where is Paddy the Gargoyle when you need him??
[16:57] <Mistyck> yep
[16:57] <KK> Not here.  It's a private company retained by the city.
[16:57] <VirtualBabe> I agree
[16:57] <Shiral> Paddy  doesn't do clamps, I guess
[16:58] <KK> Yep, Paddy obviously was elsewhere.  Or maybe it was because we were in the Honda instead of the Bentley.
[16:58] <Shiral> Or else, it just wasn't the right time of the month
[16:58] <JastaElf> Oh rats.  :-)
[16:58] <Shiral> Dang
[16:58] <Barticus> he probably could remove the clamp though
[16:58] <Shiral> Paddy could probably take the car door off <G>
[16:59] <KK> Oh, he could.  Anyway, we called the number and paid the fine by credit card, then went to the Westbury and had a hot chocolate.
[16:59] * Shiral Quit (User has been mind-ripped)
[16:59] <JastaElf> LOL!  Or have a "chat" with the booting person....
[16:59] <KK> Ack, somebody swat Peer!
[16:59] <JastaElf> Oh dear, a mind-ripping!!
[16:59] * the_Bee stings peer up the wazoo
[16:59] * Mistyck handcuffs Peer and hauls him off to jail
[16:59] * Shiral has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[16:59] <DeryniBot> Shiral - the Duke of Corwyn's official observer - arrives in Deryni Chat
[16:59] <Mistyck> wb
[16:59] <DeryniBot> King Kelson greets GM-Bynw with a bow
[16:59] * kirienne throws one of Morgan's daggers at peer
[16:59] <VirtualBabe> Or maybe one of Sir Adam's huntsmen who had Telekinetic abilities
[16:59] * Barticus calls up a snowstorm to go after peer
[16:59] <the_Bee> wb shiral
[16:59] <Mistyck> Hi Bynw

[17:00] <the_Bee> you mised us ganging up on peer
[17:00] <kirienne> I threw a dagger at peer for you
[17:00] <KK> Ah, a much better place to be.
[17:00] <Mistyck> I got mobilized too, but I don't think I'll be heading out anytime soon
[17:00] <Shiral> Thanks Kirienne
[17:01] <kirienne> YW

[17:01] <Shiral> Hello Barb mc

[17:01] <DeryniBot> Revan baptizes Kelos_al-Hazar in the stream to purge them of the ‘Deryni Taint'
[17:02] <Kelos_al-Hazar> Greetings to each and every one of you. :)
[17:02] <Mistyck> hi Kelos
[17:02] <Shiral> So other than clamps and taxes, did you get any writing done, KK?
[17:02] <Barticus> howdy kelos
[17:02] <kirienne> hi Kelos
[17:02] <KK> No, I started going over the Annales.
[17:02] <Mistyck> cool

[17:02] <JastaElf> for a change....
[17:02] <kirienne> yea!!!! Jasta
[17:02] <KK> Oh, and I shipped back the copy-edited manuscript on Monday.
[17:02] * JastaElf is dying to see the Annales!!!
[17:02] <Shiral> Well, that's time well spent
[17:02] <JastaElf> Oooo!!
[17:02] * Barticus needs to get some writing done
[17:02] <the_Bee> remind me: what are the Annales?
[17:03] <Mistyck> the codex for KKB
[17:03] <KK> The Annales Nuptiarum Kelsonus.  KKB.
[17:03] <Shiral> Cool, KK
[17:03] <Barticus> awesome, KK
[17:03] <KK> Kelsonis?  Kelsoni?  All my Latin endings have gone out of my head tonight.
[17:03] <the_Bee> your translating KKB into LATIN??
[17:03] <Mistyck> I know that will make Jessie verra happy
[17:03] <Mistyck> lol, Bee
[17:03] <KK> It's Jessie's project, and she's done a great job.
[17:03] * Barticus loves the cover for 'In the Kings Service
[17:04] <Shiral> I loved that cover too
[17:04] <Mistyck> yes, KK that is an awesome cover
[17:04] <KK> Just the title, Bee.
[17:04] * VirtualBabe has not yet seen the cover for ItKS
[17:04] <KK> Look on the website, Babe.
[17:04] <Shiral> Yes, Kenneth Morgan is slobber worthy
[17:04] <Mistyck> it's on the website VB
[17:04] <Barticus> oh gimme break Shiral
[17:04] <KK> Slobber-worthy--a good term!
[17:04] <JastaElf> :-)
[17:04] <Barticus> Alyce looks sort of hot
[17:04] * Mistyck joins Shiral in her assessment of Kenneth
[17:04] * VirtualBabe makes plans to go see the website as soon as the chat's over
[17:04] <KK> Alyce is a delight for male eyes, too, Bart.
[17:05] <kirienne> yep, Kenneth Morgan is verra handsome
[17:05] <Mistyck> very well done cover
[17:05] * RainbowDragon is partial to that dragon pitcher :-)
[17:05] <Shiral> Oh yes, she is
[17:05] <Shiral> <G>
[17:05] <Barticus> I suppose I could shape change with Kenneth
[17:05] <Mistyck> lol, bart
[17:05] <KK> I got a proof about a month before the book was done, so I was able to prop it on my editing desk and use it for inspiration. 
[17:05] <Shiral> Give it a try, Bart
[17:05] <JastaElf> NICE inspiration....
[17:05] <KK> BRB
[17:05] <Mistyck> that's really cool, KK
[17:06] <DeryniBot> Liam King of Torenth welcomes Kiri` to the Deryni Chatroom
[17:06] <Andy_Hock> Hi, Kiri`.
[17:06] <Mistyck> hi Kiri
[17:06] <kirienne> hi Kiri
[17:06] * Kiri` wafts in
[17:06] <JastaElf> Hi Kiri
[17:06] <RainbowDragon> Hi, Kiri
[17:06] <Kiri`> helo 
[17:06] <Barticus> howdy Kiri
[17:06] <Kiri`> Jasta! hug*
[17:06] <Shiral> Hi Kiri,
[17:06] <Kiri`> hi Katherine! =)
[17:06] <DeryniBot> Following a trumpet flourish the Supreme of Howicce, Martine_L, enters chat
[17:06] <Mistyck> hi Martine
[17:06] <Shiral> Hi Martine!
[17:06] <Martine_L> Hi all! Huggles!
[17:06] <kirienne> hi Martine
[17:06] <JastaElf> Hi Martine
[17:06] <Martine_L> Jasta!!!
[17:06] * Martine_L tackles Jasta in a giant huggle
[17:07] <Martine_L> Long time no see!
[17:07] <Barticus> to bad Duncan McLain won't make a appearance in this book
[17:07] <JastaElf> Hi babe!
[17:07] * JastaElf looks up expectantly and asks, "did someone mention Duncan McLain?"
[17:07] <Mistyck> lol, Jasta
[17:07] <Mistyck> although Nigel will be in the book :)
[17:07] <Martine_L> But Nigel Haldane will ;-)
[17:07] <Barticus> thats why I did Jasta
[17:07] <JastaElf> He'd still be the merest little wee baby...
[17:07] * JastaElf looks up expectantly and asks, "did someone mention Nigel Haldane?"
[17:07] <Barticus> hadn't heard you say that in while
[17:07] <JastaElf> :-)
[17:07] <the_Bee> I've been thinking...one interpretation of "Morgan" is "seaborn." a good name for a family descended from Caeriessan nobility.  Of course, it would also work for a sailors bastard <EG> or a sailor
[17:07] <JastaElf> Me and my aliases....
[17:07] <Barticus> a mere glimmer in his daddies eye
[17:07] <JastaElf> yup
[17:07] * Shiral whispers Nigel.....
[17:08] <Martine_L> Hi, Katherine. How are you?
[17:08] * JastaElf looks up expectantly and asks, "did someone mention Moat Monsters?"
[17:08] <JastaElf> :-)
[17:08] <Mistyck> she'll be right back
[17:08] <Martine_L> And... how was your horse riding?
[17:08] <RainbowDragon> KK: on the Ranger's jackets... what was the emblem?
[17:08] <Martine_L> Ok
[17:08] <JastaElf> She's AFK at the moment, folks...
[17:08] * Martine_L gets out her shrimp supply for the moat monster
[17:08] <Kiri`> akf?
[17:08] * JastaElf says moat monsters LOVE shrimp!
[17:08] * the_Bee holds her hands behind her back. "which hand, Stoirm?"
[17:08] <Kiri`> er afk
[17:08] <JastaElf> Away From Keyboard
[17:08] <Martine_L> Moat Monster better come eat the shrimp before Arwen does!
[17:08] <JastaElf> LOL!
[17:08] <Kiri`> i know.. wondering why?
[17:08] <Mistyck> kitties maybe
[17:09] <VirtualBabe> AKF= Away keyboard From
[17:09] <Mistyck> lol, VB
[17:09] <Kelric> lol
[17:09] * Martine_L sees Stoirm watch Arwen, who thinks Stoirm should take the right hand. Stoirm disagrees and goes left instead.
[17:09] <JastaElf> LOL!
[17:09] <JastaElf> Thrandy's gonna be a year old on May 7.
[17:09] <KK> Who is Storim?
[17:09] * Martine_L tosses a shrimp at the Moat Monster, then a shrimp at Arwen, then at the Moat Monster....
[17:09] <Mistyck> or KFA...if you translate it into Gujarati or Hindi
[17:09] * the_Bee hands stoirm a kumquat and arwen a banana
[17:09] <Martine_L> Stoirm is my dream horse, Katherine. And hello!
[17:09] <DeryniBot> Mak walks into chat modeling a new Custodes habit
[17:10] <KK> Ah.
[17:10] <Andy_Hock> Hi, Mak.
[17:10] <Shiral> Hello Mak
[17:10] <Mak> Hello, All!
[17:10] <the_Bee> hi mak
[17:10] <VirtualBabe> Hi maK
[17:10] <Barticus> howdy MAK
[17:10] <kirienne> cool Jasta, is he going to have a birthday party fit for a king?
[17:10] <KK> We've got some new greetings tonight, I realize.
[17:10] <JastaElf> A CUSTODES habit, Mak????  :-)
[17:10] <Kiri`> hi mak!
[17:10] <Shiral> Yikes
[17:10] <JastaElf> Yes, kirienne, a true kingly party.
[17:10] <Mak> Not me- those things make me itch!
[17:10] * Kiri` redressed Mak in a better outfit.
[17:10] <JastaElf> He's a BIG kitten for all of a year...
[17:10] * Martine_L approves Mak's fashion makeover
[17:10] <Mak> Thank you, Kiri
[17:10] <kirienne> hi Mak
[17:10] <Mistyck> hi Mak
[17:10] <RainbowDragon>  KK: on the Ranger's jackets... what was the emblem?
[17:10] * JastaElf hands Mak a Michaeline habit. No itch, no discomfort....
[17:11] <KK> Would have been a royal cipher of the king's initial and a crown, I expect.
[17:11] <Mak> Muuuuuch better, Jasta!
[17:11] <JastaElf> :-)
[17:11] <Mistyck> cool, KK
[17:11] <JastaElf> KK, are Alyce and Vera identical twins?
[17:11] <KK> Martine, I didn't get to ride this week; can't find my helmet.  And I had to do taxes, among other things.
[17:11] <KK> No, they're not.
[17:12] <the_Bee> If they were, it would be hard to keep Vera's identity a secret
[17:12] <Martine_L> :-(, Katherine. And ugh on the taxes! I just finished mine
[17:12] * Martine_L hums "I owe... I owe...."
[17:12] <JastaElf> What's Vera look like then?
[17:12] * kirienne hums along with Martine
[17:12] <Wrengl> taxes are no fun
[17:12] <KK> Her hair is darker--sort of dark honey.  They're different-enough looking that no one remarks.
[17:12] * Kelos_al-Hazar mutters that despite his best efforts, his Dad still had to pay the Gov't... :(
[17:13] <Wrengl> can ruin a perfectly wonderful day!
[17:13] * Shiral rubs her little hands in anticipation <G>
[17:13] <Mistyck> silly Chance, he covered himself in a blanket and is laying down on my couch!
[17:13] <JastaElf> Vera sounds pretty....  :-)
[17:13] <kirienne> LOL
[17:13] <JastaElf> Of course, she's Duncan's Mom....
[17:13] <JastaElf> :-)
[17:13] <KK> She is.  So is Marie.
[17:13] <RainbowDragon> How did one become a Ranger? A royal draft? 
[17:13] <Kiri`> sounds chilly
[17:14] <Mistyck> it isn't, Kiri, it's a warm day here...he's just verra silly
[17:14] <KK> Royal recruitment, more likely.
[17:14] * the_Bee greets wrengs and hands Thumper and Grommet steak bones
[17:14] <Shiral> Marie has the same coloring as vera or Alyce?
[17:14] <VirtualBabe> Sounds like what you get when the king leaves a window open
[17:14] <Shiral> LOL VB
[17:14] <Wrengl> they thank you bee
[17:14] <Martine_L> LOL!
[17:14] <Wrengl> grommet is fainting from hunger
[17:14] <Wrengl> i have not yet given her her dinner
[17:14] * GM-Bynw is now known as Bynw 
[17:14] <KK> Alyce is the fairest, then Marie, then Vera, who's actually got sort of light brown hair.
[17:14] <Shiral> Cool
[17:14] <kirienne> LOL Pat
[17:14] * Tika is on IRC
[17:15] * Shiral is devoured with curiousity to see ITKS, but is otherwise sane
[17:15] <VirtualBabe> Alyce is a BABE!
[17:15] <Wrengl> lol debbie
[17:15] <Mak> Yeha, right, Shiral.... :)
[17:15] <Shiral>  Most of the time, Mak
[17:15] <KK> Yep.  Speaking of babes, have you guys seen Legally Blonde?  Very cute film.
[17:15] <Martine_L> At least she pretends to be
[17:15] <Mak> You're about as sane as I am....
[17:15] <Martine_L> Not yet, Katherine
[17:15] <Mistyck> not yet
[17:16] <Barticus> Its a pretty funny movie KK
[17:16] <Mak> I haven't either
[17:16] <VirtualBabe> I've seen it.  Cute movie
[17:16] <KK> Well, watch for it and go see it when you can.  It's worth it.
[17:16] <kirienne> no I haven't seen it. It is on my list of things to rent if I ever decide to rent any movies
[17:16] <Barticus> my sister in law enjoyed it, and she's lawyer
[17:16] <RainbowDragon> Did the Rangers answer only to the king or also to the local Lord?
[17:16] <Martine_L> That might be the next rental :-) 
[17:16] <KK> Rangers answer to the local lord, and indirectly to the king.
[17:16] <DeryniBot> Temprus stumbles in from The Jack Dog Tavern after spending the last copper
[17:16] * Kiri` watches the chat as she eats lunch
[17:16] <Mistyck> wb Temp

[17:17] <Mistyck> KK:  it was Temprus' birthday yesterday
[17:17] * JastaElf holds out her glass to Bee....
[17:17] <Shiral> Happy birthday plus one, Temprus
[17:17] <VirtualBabe> Happy birthday Temprus
[17:17] <Barticus> hey Bynw was in your area last weekend
[17:17] <KK> Ah.  And it's Martine's today?
[17:17] <Martine_L> Yup!

[17:19] <Kiri`> gigles
[17:20] * Barticus does his best hOmer Simpson Imrpession
[17:20] <Martine_L> I'm not quite sure yet, Jasta. I'm still counting things being dropped/broken in the kitchen to guage size, Jasta ;-)
[17:20] <KK> Now, Jasta, that sounds more like <your> house, with the big ham.  ;-)
[17:20] * Ghostgames Quit (User has been mind-ripped)
[17:20] * Kelos_al-Hazar picks Peer up and slams him down on the ground in an atomic drop

[17:20] * Shiral takes Peer hanggliding
[17:20] * Mistyck doses peer with Merasha and then hauls him off to jail
[17:20] * kirienne throws another of Morgan's daggers at peer
[17:20] * VirtualBabe plets peer with a plateful of petrified peeps

[17:21] <Ghostgames> So, Martine, how's he like riding so far?

[17:21] <Kiri`> later kalric!  re ann!
[17:21] <Bynw> hiyas Ann
[17:22] <KK> I've <got> to find my helmet!
[17:22] <Martine_L> Thanks, Pat :-)
[17:22] <Kelos_al-Hazar> Hope you have a good night, Kelric.
[17:22] <Martine_L> Yes you do, Katherine!
[17:22] <kirienne> nighters Kelric
[17:22] <Martine_L> Either that or we'll have to send a new one to Holybrooke.
[17:22] <Shiral> Bye, Kelric
[17:22] * VirtualBabe swa some purple peeps the other day. for some reason she was reminded of that song from the 50's
[17:22] <Wrengl> night kelric
[17:22] <the_Bee> seeya kelric
[17:22] <Shiral> Katherine must find her helment
[17:23] <Shiral> helmet, too
[17:23] <KK> We've got one around here somewhere.  I do NOT want to have to buy a new one.
[17:23] * kirienne sends helmet finding woodgies to KK
[17:23] <Shiral> Got to keep all those stories straight in your head!
[17:23] <Shiral> <G>
[17:23] <Wrengl> indeed shiral
[17:23] <Ghostgames> A lot of stables have loaners on hand for folks who don't have their own....
[17:23] <KK> I have a Matilda in my lap tonight.
[17:23] <DeryniBot> Jebediah of Alcara cuts a doorway in the protective ward to allow RainTurtle to enter DeryniChat
[17:23] <Mistyck> hi Matilda
[17:23] <Shiral> Hello Rain
[17:23] <Andy_Hock> Hi, Rain.
[17:23] <Mistyck> hi Rain
[17:23] <Wrengl> hi rainturtle
[17:23] <Mak> Hi Rain
[17:23] <kirienne> aaaawwwww :-)
[17:23] * JastaElf pats Thrandy the Kitten King in her lap...
[17:23] <RainTurtle> good evening, all
[17:23] <Wrengl> long time no see
[17:23] <KK> But I'm not riding at a commercial stable.
[17:24] <JastaElf> Hi RT!
[17:24] * VirtualBabe offers matilda a petting
[17:24] <the_Bee> does the helmet kep plot ideas from leaking out?
[17:24] <RainbowDragon> Hi, RainTurtle - long time no see
[17:24] <kirienne> hi to Matilda an dThrandy king
[17:24] <RainTurtle> *waves*
[17:24] <kirienne> hi RT
[17:24] <Martine_L> Once John actually finds permanent reliable employment, I think I'm going to take a partial-plunge and lease a horse.
[17:24] <VirtualBabe> Hi turtle
[17:24] <Barticus> howdy rain
[17:24] <Shiral> Hello to Matilda and Thranduil
[17:24] * Wrengl hands matilda's mom a catnip sockfish for later
[17:24] <KK> Well, it's supposed to keep your brain from leaking out if you get dumped....
[17:24] <Martine_L> Hi RT!
[17:24] <Temprus> hi rt
[17:24] <RainTurtle> hi
[17:24] <Ghostgames> Ah. Riding at Annie's?
[17:24] <Shiral> Well, we wouldn't want Cinhil showing up in Deryni Rising thinking he belongs there, KK <G>
[17:25] <Martine_L> LOL!
[17:25] <KK> One of Annie's neighbors, who has a draft horse mare as a spare, and can ride during the week.
[17:25] <Mistyck> lol, Shiral
[17:25] * VirtualBabe giggles
[17:25] <Martine_L> Cinhil could make an amusing Rhemuth castle ghost!
[17:25] <Shiral> I doubt Morgan would  put up with much from Cinhil!
[17:25] <Wrengl> indeed he would martine
[17:25] <Ghostgames> I can vouch for that (no brains leaking out if you land on your head with a riding helmet -- the ones they have nowadays, at least).
[17:25] <JastaElf> Making modern helmets look medieval for horse games is an interesting exercise....  :-)
[17:25] <Kiri`> I think he'd be quite dour.. unles he's haunting the chapel altar.. 
[17:25] <Mistyck> but they don't do anything for the arms, shoulders or ribs
[17:25] <Martine_L> My helmet is nearly twenty years old now. I love it, but I'm thinking for safety I should probably get a newer one.
[17:25] <Ghostgames> Oh, Katherine, your legs are going to be /sore/! Zephyr's really wide (for an arabian) but nothing compared to a draft!
[17:26] <KK> I know.  I don't know how heavy a draft she is; haven't seen her yet.
[17:26] <Martine_L> My legs were killing me the first two times I rode Merlin the half draft! <G> I'm going to have to send you some Icy Hot cream and a heating pad.
[17:26] <Ghostgames> Martine: yes, you definitely should. The hi-tech ones are much safer -- and if you get the right fit they're much lighter and more comfortable!
[17:26] * Kelos_al-Hazar suspects KK would be better off riding such a wide beastie sidesaddle.... :)
[17:27] <barbmc> Cinhil would haunt the little chapel where he conferred power on his sons
[17:27] <JastaElf> I rode a Shire last weekend....
[17:27] <Shiral> I rode an elephant once at an amusement park
[17:27] <JastaElf> LOL!
[17:27] <Wrengl> did you, jasta
[17:27] <KK> I'd love to learn to ride side saddle.  I know someone in Canada who rides side.
[17:27] <barbmc> It's probably closed off or at least locked
[17:27] <Wrengl> shires are so pretty to look at
[17:27] <JastaElf> yup, farm where Jas lives breeds Shires.
[17:27] <Shiral> Then poor Duncan would have to put up with Cinhil's ghost
[17:27] * VirtualBabe sends Katherine some virtual tiger baLM FOR WHEN SHE ACTUALLY MANAGES TO FINALLY RIDE
[17:27] <JastaElf> They had two babies at the end of March.  One colt, one filly.  SO cute!
[17:27] <Martine_L> You're right, Ann. My helmet is left over from my hunt club days - very formal, black velvet, etc.
[17:27] <Shiral> Awww.....
[17:27] <Wrengl> i bet
[17:27] <Mistyck> I thought that chapel was in Valoret
[17:27] <VirtualBabe> grumble grumble mumble mumble caps lock
[17:27] <Martine_L> Awwww.... jasta, I'd love to see that!
[17:28] <KK> I don't think it will happen this week.  I have to fly to London at 0-dark-hundred to meet Ann for GenCon UK.
[17:28] <JastaElf> I'll put pix up on my website
[17:28] <Wrengl> we used to love going to bill's around now because we could see all the equine babies
[17:28] <Shiral> Shire foals must be cute <G>
[17:28] <JastaElf> WAY cute.  :-)
[17:28] <Shiral> Way BIG, too
[17:28] <kirienne> bet they are really cute Jasta
[17:28] <JastaElf> Curly, flippy little tails....  :-)
[17:28] <Mistyck> that's right...GenCon UK is this week
[17:28] <JastaElf> LONG legs...
[17:28] <Martine_L> Awwwwwwwww....
[17:28] <Mistyck> hope you both have a good time
[17:28] <Ghostgames> I get to fly out at 6pm -- and arrive at 6am (Thursday morning). Figure I'll hole up in my hotel room for the day, trying to get some work done and /not/ falling asleep or I'll never adjust to the new timezone.
[17:28] * Martine_L melts in an oozing pile of overwhelming cuteness factor
[17:28] <Mistyck> and I think JP is going to try to be there
[17:28] <Shiral> Well...April showers may bring May Rides, KK
[17:29] <Shiral> <G>
[17:29] <JastaElf> Jasper's Mama had a colt too.  by a palomino.  WAY too cute to be real.  :-)
[17:29] <barbmc> Could make a good story - Kelson's 9 or 10 year old son finding a key to let him into that suite
[17:29] <Ghostgames> I expect to. I'll do my best to help Katherine have a good time, too. :-)
[17:29] <Shiral> Which suite, Barb?
[17:29] <Wrengl> bet he is jasta
[17:29] <Shiral> We're counting on you, Ann
[17:29] <Wrengl> and how is jasper?
[17:29] <barbmc> Cinhil's with the little chapel
[17:29] <Wrengl> did you see him?
[17:29] <Shiral> Ah
[17:29] <Shiral> But is that in Rhemuth, or Valoret?
[17:29] <KK> Are you aware that the Heathrow Express will be shut down for maintenance for the weekend?  Fortunately, the Tube will be running.
[17:29] <JastaElf> Yup!  He's doing very well, except he's started breaking down fences and trotting next door to visit the neighbors. ;-)
[17:29] <barbmc> rhemuth
[17:29] <Barticus> Valoret
[17:30] <Wrengl> naughty jasper
[17:30] <RainTurtle> My neighbour
[17:30] <Martine_L> Ack! Jasper! Bad boy!
[17:30] <Wrengl> he needs schooling me thinks
[17:30] <JastaElf> :-) yup
[17:30] <Mistyck> the chapel was in Valoret
[17:30] <VirtualBabe> Jasper Bad horsie
[17:30] <Martine_L> Why should he break the fences when he can just *jump* them? <g>
[17:30] <JastaElf> Grass is always greener in the next subdivision...
[17:30] <kirienne> he just wants to visit neighbors
[17:30] <Mistyck> cuz they didn't move to Rhemuth until after Cinhil's death
[17:30] <RainTurtle> oops...My neighbour's pony used to jump the fence and eat the lawn at the church
[17:30] <JastaElf> He took the Shire gelding Tristan and one other horse with him too.  ;-)
[17:30] <Ghostgames> I'll have so much luggage (bringing stock to sell -- miscommunications with  my new fulfillment center meant none was shipped in time) I'll be splurging for a taxi from Heathrow to the Olympia. I should be able to take the tube back on Tuesday, though (much less luggage).
[17:30] <Wrengl> naughty naughty jasper
[17:30] <barbmc> I thought they moved the capitol back to rhemuth earliest
[17:31] <Martine_L> So he's leading a little horsie gang, huh?
[17:31] <Barticus> well all need to get going , y'all have great and safe week
[17:31] <barbmc> I'll have to re-read
[17:31] <JastaElf> Neighbors were not exactly amused, tho one guy was.  :-)
[17:31] <JastaElf> Yes, Jasper the hoodlum.  ;-)
[17:31] <Mistyck> lol
[17:31] <kirienne> bye bart
[17:31] <Martine_L> Bye, Bart!
[17:31] <VirtualBabe> Nighters Bazrt, and happy easter
[17:31] * Barticus waves all as he steps onto his crop circle and is gone
[17:31] <JastaElf> Bye Bart!
[17:31] <Mistyck> nite Bart
[17:31] <Mak> Bye Bart
[17:31] <RainTurtle> be well
[17:31] * Barticus Quit (Quit: Leaving)

[17:31] * Ghostgames has left IRC
[17:31] <Mistyck> yikes
[17:31] <JastaElf> Eeep!
[17:31] <RainbowDragon> Ack!
[17:31] <Shiral> Poor Ann
[17:31] <Martine_L> Not again!
[17:31] <Mistyck> Peer sure has it in for Ann tonight
[17:31] * Kelos_al-Hazar smacks Peer upside the head with the flat of his broadsword
[17:32] * Mistyck handcuffs Peer and hauls him off to jail
[17:32] <barbmc> Peer seems to have it oout for ann
[17:32] <VirtualBabe> Peer's got it in for ann this week
[17:32] <KK> Ann, there apparently are special vans that will take you to specific hotels for about L15 each way--much cheaper than a taxi. Sounds like a British version of SuperShuttle.  Check the baa.co.uk website.
[17:32] * Kiri` grabs the broadsword and skeewers Peer with it.
[17:32] <JastaElf> Peer just wants her to get some rest before her flight, that's all.  :-)
[17:32] * the_Bee leads her hive to sting peer
[17:32] * kirienne throws another of Morgan's at peer, and realizes she has to ask nicely so Alaric will give her more daggers
[17:32] <DeryniBot> Revan baptizes Ghostgames in the stream to purge them of the 'Deryni Taint'
[17:32] <Mistyck> wb Ann
[17:32] <Shiral> WB, Ann
[17:32] <RainTurtle> wb
[17:33] <Ghostgames> hmmm....
[17:33] <kirienne> wb ann
[17:33] <the_Bee> baa.co? sounds like a website for sheep
[17:33] <Mak> WB Ann
[17:33] <Martine_L> wb, Ann!
[17:33] <JastaElf> Peer wants you to go to bed and rest before the flight, Ann....  :-)
[17:33] <RainbowDragon> lol
[17:33] <Shiral> LOL Bee
[17:33] <KK> Ann, there's a van service, similar to SuperShuttle, that will take you to a specific hotel for about L15.  Check the baa.co.uk website.
[17:33] <Shiral> I was thinking that, too
[17:33] <Ghostgames> Anyhow, Katherine, what's the Heathrow Express? a shuttlebus (similar to Logan Express)?
[17:33] * Martine_L hands Ann one of her riding crops so Ann can fend off peer
[17:33] <Martine_L> A train service, Ann.
[17:33] * JastaElf gets homesick at mention of the Logan Express.... :-(
[17:33] <KK> Heathrow Express is a train.  Different from the Underground.
[17:33] <Martine_L> I took it when I went to London. Very nice :-)
[17:33] <Ghostgames> Ah.
[17:34] <Ghostgames> I'll look for the van service. The Hilton Olympia's FAQ page mentions taxi service starting at L27.
[17:34] * RainbowDragon thinks riding a train sounds fun!
[17:34] <KK> I'll send you the site info that the GenCon folk sent me.
[17:34] * kirienne has never ridden on a train but would like to someday
[17:35] <Mistyck> UK Rail is fun to ride
[17:35] <JastaElf> RD I ride a train to work everyday.  It gets old rather quickly--and I'm from a railroad family!  :-)
[17:35] <KK> And if you book a round trip, I think it's about L26 or L27.
[17:35] <VirtualBabe> Katherine, I've just finished re-reading the Adept series, and was wondering, what parts are yours and what parts are Debbie harris's?
[17:35] <Martine_L> Good question, VB!
[17:35] <Bynw> KK does the verbs and Debbie does the nouns
[17:35] * Bynw giggles
[17:35] <Shiral> LOL
[17:35] <JastaElf> LOL!!
[17:35] <Martine_L> ROTFL!!!!
[17:35] <Mistyck> lol
[17:35] <VirtualBabe> LOL
[17:35] <the_Bee> You said Debbie is the art expert?
[17:36] <Shiral> IT's very intense teamwork <G>
[17:36] <JastaElf> Bynw=brat...  :-) Which is why we love him...
[17:36] <KK> She prosed it from my very detailed outline, and then I polished and rewrote.
[17:36] <Mak> ROTFL, Bynw
[17:36] <KK> Yes, she's the art expert and musician.
[17:36] <barbmc> must go supper is ready
[17:36] <Mistyck> cool, KK
[17:36] * barbmc Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[17:36] <Mistyck> nite Barb
[17:36] <JastaElf> Night barb!
[17:36] <JastaElf> Oops, she's fast....
[17:36] <Shiral> Oops
[17:36] <Shiral> Missed Barb
[17:37] <VirtualBabe> Thanks Katherine
[17:37] <JastaElf> BRB, must get liquid.  :-)
[17:37] <Mistyck> Katherine:  will the Director's Cut have minor changes only or will some of the changes be pretty major?   
[17:38] <KK> So far, minor.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  I'm not going to mess majorly with a book that's been pretty much in continuous print for aver 30 years.
[17:38] <RainTurtle> be well
[17:38] <Mistyck> cool!
[17:39] <Shiral> Very wise
[17:39] * the_Bee is looking forward to the revised Deryni Genetics 101
[17:39] <Martine_L> Me too!
[17:39] <kirienne> it is hard to believe it's been that long KK
[17:39] <KK> Which reminds me, Kiri, that I'll be looking for the DC scan in a few months.
[17:39] <VirtualBabe> And I'm hoping they will be in continous print for another thirty yrs, along with all the other Deryni books returning
[17:40] <Mistyck> yep
[17:40] <Mistyck> me too, Debbie
[17:40] <kirienne> and another 30 after the 30 Debbie wishes
[17:40] <Kiri`> Katherine - it shold be on it's way to you before the month is out =)
[17:40] <KK> Tell me about how long!   
[17:40] <Mak> My youngest daughter (18) has started reading my Deryni books....
[17:40] <Mistyck> I think that's so awesome....
[17:40] <Ghostgames> I was curious, the other day, how many languages (and which ones) Deryni novels have been translated into. Neither of the Deryni FAQs seem to mention that.
[17:40] <the_Bee> aha! a new recruit! :o)
[17:40] <Mak> Indeed, Bee :)
[17:40] <RainbowDragon> Good question, Ghostgames!
[17:41] <Mistyck> yep in more ways than one, Bee, she's also going into the military :)
[17:41] <the_Bee> which branch?
[17:41] <Mak> Good catch, Mistyck- I missed it!
[17:41] <Mak> Army
[17:41] <KK> Ah, I have that information on my super-annotated bibliography.  They're all in French, German, Spanish, Italian, about to be all in Russian. a few in Japanese, Swedish.
[17:42] <JastaElf> Two young friends of mine at church just started reading the Deryni books too.
[17:42] <Mistyck> that is so totally cool
[17:42] <JastaElf> They're devouring them.  :-)
[17:42] <Martine_L> I'd love to get my hands on Spanish and Swedish copies.
[17:42] * JastaElf wants the German ones
[17:42] <Kiri`> Portugese?
[17:42] <Shiral> Cool, both languages and the new recruits <G>
[17:42] <KK> I'll see what I can scare up for you when you're here in August.
[17:42] <kirienne> cool, it's nice to have new readers read them, maybe someday they'll join us here
[17:42] <Kelric> back
[17:42] <JastaElf> I hope so!
[17:42] <Mistyck> yep
[17:42] <Martine_L> Cool! Thanks, Katherine!
[17:42] <Ghostgames> I have one of the older Camber von Culdi books I picked up at Essen Spiel last October. Couldn't find any of the others, though.
[17:42] <Mak> And I didn't even give them to her- she came and asked if she could borrow one...
[17:42] <VirtualBabe> I recently reccommended them to a woman I was shatting to who's reading the wheel of time right now
[17:43] <VirtualBabe> chatting with
[17:43] <the_Bee> you shat on her? that wasn't verra nice
[17:43] <KK> I'm reading the second King's Blade book--good, but not as good as the first one, The Gilded Chain.
[17:43] <JastaElf> LOL!
[17:43] <kirienne> LOL Bee
[17:43] <Mak> Hmmm- Kryss is going to end up (most likely) in Germany- I'll have to tell her to look for the books...
[17:43] <JastaElf> Oh, yes please....  :-)
[17:44] <Mak> Will do, Jasta!
[17:44] <JastaElf> Thank you thank you thank you!!  :-)
[17:44] * JastaElf wants SO badly to go to Deutschland....
[17:44] <Mak> You're welcome*3
[17:44] <KK> I'm told that the German translation is not that great.
[17:44] <RainbowDragon> KK: once the Director's Cut books are in circulation, will the old ones be too, or will they replace the originals totally?
[17:44] <Mak> You could go visit Kryss.... :)
[17:44] <JastaElf> That's OK, I still want 'em.  :-)
[17:45] <KK> And I <know> that Germany is not that great, Jasta.  Now, Austria....
[17:45] <JastaElf> Oooh, good idea....  :-)
[17:45] <Mistyck> good question RD
[17:45] <JastaElf> LOL!  But I have *ties* to Germany....
[17:45] <the_Bee> comment re last week's chat.  CH gives Jerusha Thuryn's dates ast 918-1001--83  years.  HG leaves off the death date, but still has an arrow indicating descendants
[17:45] <Martine_L> Oooo! I'd love to go to Salzburg
[17:45] <KK> They'll replace the original, except where old copies exist.
[17:45] <Shiral>  BRB
[17:45] <Mak> I figure that's a great excuse for a trip- poor kid, away from home, Mommy needs to go.....
[17:45] <JastaElf> :-)
[17:45] <Martine_L> Ski in the Austrian alps.....
[17:45] <KK> She has descendants.
[17:45] * JastaElf is SO not a skier... :-)
[17:46] <VirtualBabe> I think that will depend on Ace and the sales of the Childe cycle and the Director's cut
[17:46] <Mistyck> good idea, Mak
[17:46] <the_Bee> Good. I thought you said last week she died too young. wrong Jerusha?
[17:46] <Martine_L> Jasta, you can sit in the lodge and drink hot buttered rum ;-)
[17:46] <JastaElf> :-) With someone cute, I hope!
[17:46] <Martine_L> Take in the mountain scenery
[17:46] <Mistyck> or pepermint schnapps
[17:46] <KK> I got a royalty check for KKB this week.  :-)  Thank you, guys!

[17:47] <kirienne> take both Nigel and Thranduill with you Jasta
[17:47] <the_Bee> checks are nice when they're made out to you and not from you
[17:47] <JastaElf> LOL!  Yeah BAYBEE!!!
