KK Chat - Apr. 27, 2003

[17:29] <DeryniBot> KK is snatched from the clutches of the Regents by
Jesse and is then sent to Deryni Chat
[17:29] <jp> hi
[17:29] <the_Bee> is the purple the right shade for your hair?
[17:29] <Martine_L> Hi Katherine!
[17:29] <kirienne> my guild plays part of  nobility, but since moist
events are considered to be in England and we are an Irish Tuath, we
dress in non royal looking garb
[17:29] <RainTurtle> hi, KK :)
[17:29] <jp> KK
[17:29] <JastaElf> Hi KK!  Welcome!
[17:29] <Debbie-VB> Hi Katherine
[17:29] <Mistyck> hi KK
[17:29] <kirienne> Hi Katherine
[17:29] <Romain> hi KK !
[17:30] <the_Bee> Howdy KK
[17:30] <KK> Hello, troops!
[17:30] <Kelric> ahh.  KK has now arrived.
[17:30] <JastaElf> Mom's home!  Put away the beer!!  :-)
[17:30] <Wrengl> evening katherine
[17:30] <Kelric> now I can remention the cool find I had yesterday
[17:30] * Martine_L quickly stuffs the beer under the sofa
[17:30] <Romain> good evening !
[17:30] <jp> You just missed Elvis KK.
[17:30] <RainbowDragon> Greetings, Katherine!
[17:30] <the_Bee> Question" what was the Deryniverse's equivalent of
the Silk Route?
[17:30] <KK> Well, Romain!  Welcome!
[17:30] <Debbie-VB> what cool find Kelric
[17:30] <KK> I know, Elvis has left thebuilding!
[17:30] <Romain> here i am ! i told you I'd come.
[17:31] <Mistyck> he actually came a few days ago too :D
[17:31] <Romain> yesterday
[17:31] <Mistyck> yep, yesterday
[17:31] <Tieg> greetings KK :)
[17:31] <KK> Guys, I met Romain at the gaming convention in London
last weekend.  He's very sweet, a student at the Sorbonne.
[17:31] <RainTurtle> Very cool
[17:31] <Kelric> I snagged for a quarter a very good copy of the
Pan/Ballantine 1973 edition (GB/Australia/New Zealand) of Deryni
[17:31] <Romain> I'm blushing...
[17:31] <jp> Is Romain the blue hair from gencon UK?
[17:31] <Mistyck> lol, knew this would happen!
[17:31] <Kelric> Minor creases on the spine and a couple small divits
on teh top.
[17:31] <KK> Yes.
[17:31] <Romain> green hair
[17:32] <Mistyck> lol
[17:32] <jp> sorry
[17:32] <kirienne> wow Kwlric, that is quite a find
[17:32] <KK> It looked blue to me!
[17:32] <Romain> yes, but nevertheless...
[17:32] <JastaElf> It's mood hair, Katherine...  :-)
[17:32] <KK> Well, maybe a little of both.  Tarnished blue turns
[17:32] <Mistyck> KK:  is that what happened to Lewys ap Norfal?   
[17:32] <Romain> well, it kind of wore off, but it was green
[17:32] <Romain> at some point... lol
[17:32] <Debbie-VB> good on you Kelric.  I managed to find a
hard-cover of the Legacy ofLehr
[17:32] <KK> Is what what happened to Lewys?
[17:32] <kirienne> cool Debbie
[17:33] <Mistyck> hair turned green?
[17:33] <KK> Nope, more than that happened to him.
[17:33] <Mistyck> lol!
[17:33] <the_Bee> his hair turned green and the Green Tower camoflaged
[17:33] <Romain> lol
[17:33] <Martine_L> LOL!
[17:33] <Mistyck> how was your week KK? and how was the Con?
[17:33] <jp> he is the green tower!
[17:33] <Debbie-VB> will we ever find out what actually happened to
[17:33] <Kelric> now if I could just find an inexpensive copy of TBP
I'd be just peachy
[17:34] <KK> Dunno.  Probably not.
[17:34] <Debbie-VB> gonna keep us in suspenders eh katherine?
[17:34] <KK> YOu can't find Bastard Prince?
[17:34] <Romain> how was your last day of Gen Con ?
[17:34] <the_Bee> I need KJY, TBP, all Kelson Chronicles and KKB
[17:34] <KK> It was fine, other than the coughing fits.
[17:34] <Martine_L> It's sort of like the X-Files. Finding out is
never as interesting as wondering "what if".
[17:34] <KK> Yep, Martine.
[17:34] <Romain> i love the suspense
[17:35] * Debbie-VB winces @coughing fits
[17:35] <Romain> excruciating
[17:35] <Martine_L> Coughing fits? What happened?
[17:35] <KK> It's sure taking time to shift this whatever-it-is.  I'm
still not well, though I think it's finally starting to get better,
two different antibiotics later.
[17:35] <jp> It was like a scene from the OK coral, KK was Doc Holiday
[17:35] <KK> AND nasal spray, AND an inhaler.  Yuck!
[17:35] <JastaElf> Ouch, JP....
[17:36] <RainTurtle> KK: the Adsum Domine....would that be wanting to
be in 9-10th century northern European style, or does the music not
quite correspond,....or should it be earlier?
[17:36] <Mistyck> yikes, that doesn't sound like fun at all!
[17:36] <JastaElf> Ouch, KK!!  {{hugs}}
[17:36] <KK> Yep, that's me.
[17:36] <Martine_L> Oh, ick, Katheirne!
[17:36] <Martine_L> I guess that means no riding of draft horses yet,
huh? <g>
[17:36] <Tieg> not good ;(
[17:36] <Debbie-VB> sounds like an advanced case of con crud
[17:36] <kirienne> oh Kathrine, hope yuou get better soon (((KK)))
[17:36] <KK> Well, it's definitely polyphonic, but in minor key.
[17:36] <Romain> she was very taken at the convention
[17:36] <KK> If it's con crud, it's from Darkover-time.
[17:36] <Mistyck> yikes!
[17:37] <Romain> your coughing was polyphonic too.
[17:37] <KK> Yep.  Ever coughed so hard you thought you'd barf?
[17:37] <Debbie-VB> I promise i will come in good health this november
[17:37] <Mistyck> yep, that's not fun!
[17:37] <Romain> ewwww !
[17:37] <kirienne> ouch KK
[17:37] <Romain> i have
[17:37] <Debbie-VB> ouch!
[17:37] <Martine_L> I have, Katherine! Is your stomach still tender?
[17:38] <KK> I actually sampled the joys of National Health Service on
Sunday night; was having trouble breathing.  But Charing Cross
Hospital was very good, other than the two hour wait.
[17:38] <KK> And it was free.
[17:38] <RainTurtle> KK: I'll send you a setting of it in a few weeks;
if you like it, I'll do it in the proper calligraphy.  Fair enough?
[17:38] <Martine_L> Ouch! You really were feeling rather lousy!
[17:38] <Mistyck> 2 hours is fast in comparision to some US hospital
emergency rooms
[17:38] <RainTurtle> :(  Poor Katherine  ((((KK)))))
[17:38] <JastaElf> KK, they better have taken good care of you!!!
[17:38] <Romain> she was very sick
[17:38] <KK> Felt fine except for the hacking and wheezing.
[17:38] <jp> I once coughed so hard i thought someone i was with would
[17:39] <Wrengl> hi rainturtle, long time no see
[17:39] <Romain> EWWWWWWWW
[17:39] <KK> Yeah, well it was 2 AM on Easter Sunday night--but there
was only one doc on call.
[17:39] <RainTurtle> hi, Pat
[17:39] <Tieg> I do hope you feel better
[17:39] <Mistyck> yikes!
[17:39] <KK> LOL, JP
[17:39] <KK> It's getting better....
[17:39] <Mistyck> good!
[17:39] <KK> I think.
[17:39] <Romain> good for you, KK
[17:39] * Mistyck sends get well soon woodgies to KK
[17:40] <KK> At least I'm getting the good bugs replenished in my gut.
 Neglected to start the live yogurt at the same time I started the
[17:40] * the_Bee sends good health woodgies all around
[17:40] * kirienne sends prayers up for KK to get all the way better
[17:40] <KK> Anyway, my week.  Other than that.
[17:40] <Martine_L> LOL! Was there a week OTHER than that?
[17:40] <KK> I spent two days going over the ms. that Ann handed me at
the con, for the gaming bible.
[17:40] <JastaElf> :-)
[17:41] <jp> With all the talk of SARS i was a bit worried I'de get
back to Birmingham and be hospitalized
[17:41] <Mistyck> cool!
[17:41] <Debbie-VB> Sounds good Katherine
[17:41] <KK> I spent another day sorting out the bishops who were
active at that time, which is 907/8.
[17:41] <Romain> what news of that ?
[17:41] <KK> I spent another day sorting out a whole list of questions
for Melissa, for the gaming atlas.
[17:41] <Romain> that's quite a job
[17:41] <Kelos_al-Hazar> Birmingham, jp? UK, or AL? :-)
[17:41] <KK> I did a few pages of Jessie's ms.
[17:41] <jp> UK
[17:41] <Mistyck> cool, KK!
[17:41] <kirienne> wow katherine you have been verra busy
[17:42] <Tieg> sounds fun
[17:42] <KK> I went through chapters 2-6 of the DR polish.
[17:42] <Mistyck> wow!  you have been busy!
[17:42] <Romain> wow !
[17:42] <KK> Which brings me to a question.
[17:42] <Martine_L> Wow! Teach me to be so productive when I'm ill, O
Great One!
[17:42] <KK> How attached are you guys to Khadasa?
[17:42] <Debbie-VB> ask away katherine
[17:42] <Mistyck> not too much
[17:42] <JastaElf> as a cuss word?  Not awfully...  :-)
[17:42] <Romain> anything else, or you just want to schedule dicovring
a new vaccine for tomorrow ?
[17:42] <Martine_L> Very attached!
[17:42] <RainTurtle> As a curse-word?  I use it a lot..... *chuckles*
[17:42] <the_Bee> is it anything but a swear word?
[17:43] * jp KK uses only the finest book polish
[17:43] <Martine_L> Hard to make a good pious Deryni swear without
"Khadasa" <g>
[17:43] <the_Bee> is it worth changing?
[17:43] <kirienne> I do use it as a curse word at times, but would
change if you make changes :-)
[17:43] <Andy_Hock> I had khadasa for supper last night.
[17:43] <Mistyck> lol
[17:43] <KK> No, it's just a swear word--because, in those days, I
thought you had to come up with made-up words, and I was being careful
about being too overtly Christian int he beginning.
[17:43] <jp> lol
[17:43] <Romain> I never use it, but it sounds nice.
[17:44] * Kelos_al-Hazar hands KK a large mug of honey-sweetened Earl
Grey tea...
[17:44] <Romain> you could replace it by something christian
[17:44] <RainTurtle> *is curious*  What do you want to do to it?
[17:44] <kirienne> are you thinking of changing it Katherine?
[17:44] <Romain> if you wish.
[17:44] <jp> Maybe Khadasa was the name of a bad bishop from 907/8
[17:44] <Romain> lots of stuff to pick from.
[17:44] <KK> In later books, I've had characters swear by Dear God, or
Sweet Jesu, or the like--Jesu works well, I think, because it's
recognizable but not widely used today, ebing Latin.
[17:44] <Martine_L> ROTFL, JP!
[17:44] <Tika> hehehe JP
[17:44] <the_Bee> it's uniquely Deryni
[17:44] <Mistyck> yep, that's true
[17:45] <Romain> Khadasa is very Deryni
[17:45] <Tika> hi KK, sorry for the delay - Bynw and Mommers are on
their way over so I had some things to get done first ;)
[17:45] <Romain> why not making it someone's name
[17:45] <Tika> I always wondered about that word...
[17:45] <KK> I agree that it's uniquely Deryni, but without a context,
it's just sort of noise.
[17:45] <Wrengl> i think of khaddasa as deryni
[17:45] <Romain> indeed, someone old
[17:45] <Romain> maybe it is worth inventing a concept
[17:45] <Kelos_al-Hazar> Perhaps even a city now destroyed...
[17:46] <the_Bee> derived from "Dhassa"?
[17:46] <Mistyck> a bishop from the Integrrum
[17:46] <Romain> or an old deryni ruler, revered, or hated
[17:46] <jp> sort of like Roy Munsen from the film Kingpin
[17:46] <Martine_L> Or a word from a foreign language that has slipped
into the Gwynedd tongue
[17:46] <Mistyck> yep
[17:46] <KK> One thing I <am> doing is excising the feet and inches
and replacing them with hands and paces and the like, as I also have
done in the later books.  Other than miles.  I do still use miles,
though usually it's days' ride for distances.
[17:46] <Mistyck> maybe it's Caerrissan
[17:46] <Debbie-VB> or maybe a word that once came from Caerissea
[17:47] <Romain> perhaps
[17:47] <Debbie-VB> GMTA!
[17:47] <Tika> wow I thought the concept of "time-distance" was
uniquely Iowan :)
[17:47] <Mistyck> yep Debbie
[17:47] <Romain> this editing is an awful lot of work
[17:47] <KK> No, it's LA-ian, too.
[17:47] <Tika> hehehe
[17:47] <jp> will the hands paces and miles be used for the map?
[17:47] <Mistyck> heehee
[17:47] <Martine_L> Miles were a roman invention, so that's still a
valid measure of long distance. :-)
[17:47] <Tika> we never used "30 minutes away" in Atlanta... probably
because it doesn't ever apply, with traffic
[17:48] <the_Bee> 1000 paces
[17:48] <KK> I think they're using miles.  But my roads are elastic,
as I'm sure you've noticed. :-)
[17:48] <Martine_L> Same thing around here, Tika!
[17:48] <Kiri`> i wanna see mogan et bounced off one!
[17:48] <Martine_L> LOL! Rubber band roads! <g>
[17:48] <Tika> explains the "spring in the step" of the horses :)
[17:48] <jp> ha ha
[17:48] <kirienne> LOL Tika
[17:48] <Romain> I'll just be sulking because as usual, i don't get
neat conversions to my dear metric system...
[17:48] * Debbie-VB giggles
[17:48] <Martine_L> Maybe that's how Kelson got thrown from Dhugal's
spotted pony "the first half-dozen times you tried to ride her!" <bg>
[17:48] <the_Bee> moebius strip roads
[17:49] <Kelos_al-Hazar> KK: One thing that continually trips me up in
figuring distance traveled a-horse is 'what is the typical speed of
horse-travel, averaged for varying terrain?'
[17:49] <KK> Speaking of horses, Martine, Ann got me a cool new riding
helmet in London!  It's really lightweight and comfy.
[17:49] <Martine_L> Cool! Aren't the new ones fabulous?
[17:49] <Mistyck> ooh, neat!
[17:49] <Debbie-VB> Don't worry romain, I'm canadian and we're metric
[17:49] <Romain> boy, do you ALL ride horses ?
[17:49] <jp> no
[17:49] <Romain> thanks ! at last someone !
[17:49] * Mistyck doesn't ride
[17:49] <Martine_L> Katherine, I rode a young, green draft mare last
Thursday - and jumped her. I am DEFINITELY sending you some muscle
cream! <g>
[17:49] <Romain> there is a God
[17:49] <KK> About 20 miles a day doesn't push it too much; they can
go much farther, but not for as long.
[17:49] <the_Bee> I read smeplace that 20 miles is a fair day's ride.
not sure if that's horseback or wagon
[17:49] <Martine_L> I'm still a wee bit tender.
[17:49] <kirienne> no Romain, I do not ride a horse
[17:49] <JastaElf> Don't like horses, Romain?  :-)
[17:49] <jp> though i have been on a couple
[17:50] <Romain> I'm afraid of horses.
[17:50] <Kiri`> Katherine - what would wyneddians have carried on a
trip.. foodwise?
[17:50] <JastaElf> the US cavalry on patrol averaged 60 miles in a day
on horseback....
[17:50] <Romain> big things.
[17:50] <JastaElf> Ah, gotcha
[17:50] <Kelos_al-Hazar> That would be (assuming a league is 3 miles)
7 leagues a day, pushing for speed, then.
[17:50] <Martine_L> LOL! Romain, I was first on horseback when I was
two. Somehow they don't seem quite so big anymore! ;-)
[17:50] <Romain> smelly. nice, i suppose, but smelly and big,and
extremely strong.
[17:50] <KK> Yeah, and endurance horses can go over 100, I know--but
not for days and days.  Eventually they need to rest.
[17:50] <jp> horses are like spiders, more scared of you than you are
of them
[17:51] <JastaElf> I *love* the smell of horses...  :-)
[17:51] <Martine_L> Me too!
[17:51] <the_Bee> 20 miles pulling a wagon or carriage then?
[17:51] <KK> Journey-bread, cheese, sausages....
[17:51] <Martine_L> Romain, once you learn the basics of handling a
horse, the "big" and "strong" parts don't matter much anymore.
[17:51] <kirienne> me too Romain, ever since the one and only time I
rode one, I was just a child, and they gave me the most stubborn  un
co-operative horse in the bunch when cousin's a dni went riding
[17:51] <KK> Not as far, pulling a wagon or carriage--though again, if
you change horses....
[17:51] <Romain> well... I suppose. being in Paris, i'm pretty much
afraid of everything in the country.
[17:52] <Kiri`> Katherine - would the more well offhave carried
[17:52] * Martine_L resists the urge to put a country mouse under
Romain's chair
[17:52] * Debbie-VB only rode a horsie once
[17:52] <Romain> any stuff that might ooze on me, drool on me,etc...
[17:52] <Mistyck> lol Martine
[17:52] <Kiri`> and how far apart would have post-houses or inns been?
[17:52] <Kiri`> touhly
[17:52] <Kiri`> rouhly
[17:52] <Martine_L> Horses don't drool! <laugh>
[17:52] <Romain> lol
[17:52] * jp TOO far
[17:52] <Kiri`> quarter horses do!
[17:52] <KK> Sure, wine-skins--but water bottles of leather (harder)
would have been more useful--the then-equivalent of a canteen.
[17:52] <Kiri`> nods
[17:53] * Kelos_al-Hazar still remembers the first horse-ride he did
in 1988...fell off twice, and still rode back in... surprised the
trailboss no end. He'd never seen it before.
[17:53] <KK> Can't remember post-house distances.  And maybe someone
remembers how far apart Pony Express stations were....
[17:53] <Kiri`> was there some sort of transport service for travelers
 like a daily coach to Valoret or Rhemuth?
[17:53] <Romain> well, I'll have to go, unfortunately, but it was nice
meeting you all, and seeing you again KK !
[17:53] <Martine_L> Kelos, I've fallen off a horse so many times I
stopped counting!
[17:53] <Kiri`> nce meeting you romain =)
[17:53] <Mistyck> have a good nite Romain
[17:54] <JastaElf> Bye Romain, nice to "meet" you!
[17:54] <Debbie-VB> Nighters romain
[17:54] <kirienne> nice meeting you Romain, come back again
[17:54] <jp> see ya
[17:54] <Martine_L> Coaches didn't come until much later in history.
[17:54] <KK> Good to see you here, Romain.  How that you know where we
are, come again!
[17:54] <Kelos_al-Hazar> Be well, Romain...
[17:54] <the_Bee> goodnight romain
[17:54] <Romain> good night everyone, i'll be back again !
[17:54] <Martine_L> Bye, Romain! Nice meeting you!
[17:54] <Kiri`> richenda has a coach...
[17:54] * Romain Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[17:54] <Debbie-VB> in medieval times most people remained within some
20 miles of where they were born
[17:54] <Kelos_al-Hazar> But public stage-coaches probably didn't
appear until much later.
[17:54] <KK> He really is sweet.  He'll be a delightful addition to
our chatting.
[17:55] <Martine_L> Good!
[17:55] <Mistyck> yep
[17:55] <kirienne> :-)
[17:55] <KK> Public coaches would have been later.
[17:55] <DeryniBot> Bishop Denis Arilan escorts Bynw to DeryniChat.
[17:55] <Mistyck> wb Bynw
[17:55] <Martine_L> hi Bynw!
[17:55] <Kiri`> ok  thanks.. i thouht so.. but was curious
[17:55] <kirienne> hi bynw
[17:55] <jp> I'm sure you already know KK, but i looked up Arx Fidea
and it's "near valoret" according to DA
[17:55] <Bynw> hiyas all
[17:55] <RainTurtle> hi, Bynw
[17:55] <KK> Yep, but they're trying to figure out in what direction.
[17:56] <Bynw> Hiyas KK :-)
[17:56] <Kiri`> nw of the pond.   
[17:56] <KK> Hi, Bynw.
[17:56] * the_Bee Quit (User has been mind-ripped)
[17:56] <Mistyck> that clue may be in KJY
[17:56] * Martine_L takes a riding crop in each hand and thwacks Peer
[17:56] <Debbie-VB> ACK peer got the bee
[17:56] <KK> Oh, no, Bee's been peered!
[17:56] * kirienne throws another of Morgan's daggers at peer
[17:56] <Mistyck> when Rhysem sends for Javan
[17:56] <JastaElf> Peer's been over-active tonight....
[17:56] <Kiri`> peer stung bee back!
[17:56] <Mistyck> yikes, poor Bee
[17:56] * Debbie-VB pelts peer with a plateful of petrified peeps
[17:57] * Kelos_al-Hazar kicks Peer halfway across the room for
disrespecting his friends
[17:57] <Mistyck> KK: is Ann the one looking for that info?
[17:57] <Bynw> have a good time at GenCon UK?
[17:57] * jp paints over peer while doing DIY
[17:57] <Martine_L> LOL! Hey, jp, you wanna come paint over here? <g>
[17:58] <jp> You pay for the flight and put me up?
[17:58] <Martine_L> Depending on how much the flight would cost,
that's very very tempting!
[17:58] <KK> Yes, Mistyck.  Or Nancy Berman.
[17:58] * jp have brush, will travel
[17:59] <Martine_L> phone
[17:59] <RainbowDragon> radio
[17:59] <KK> Gencon was....interesting.
[17:59] <Mistyck> ok, I'll see if I can find it and email it to her
[17:59] <RainbowDragon> define interesting, please  :-)
[17:59] <Martine_L> JP, I'll give you fair warning. I live in a one
bedroom house. You'll get to choose between an air mattress or a down
sofa ;-)
[17:59] <Tieg> Darkover always seemed more interesting to me, but I
have't been to either one yet
[18:00] <Debbie-VB> why is your sofa depressed?

[18:07] <Mistyck> ooh!
[18:07] <KK> No, I didn't drool; I scarfed it up!
[18:07] <Mistyck> long day?
[18:07] <Martine_L> That is definitely my idea of heaven!

the kitchen torch... it ran out of butane.
