KK Chat - June 1, 2003

[16:45] *** KK has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[16:45] *** KK sets mode: +q KK
[16:45] <DeryniBot>  Hail and Well Met, KK 
[16:45] <Mistyck> hi KK
[16:46] <Shiral> Hello Katherine
[16:46] <Sedina> Hi, KK
[16:46] <kirienne> Hi Katherine
[16:46] <Laura> hey there KK 
[16:46] <Rae> KK
[16:46] <KK> Hello, all.  Sorry I'm late.  Mea culpa.  We have house guests.
[16:46] <Mistyck> how are the house guests KK?
[16:46] <Bynw> Katherine!
[16:46] <KK> They're fine.  We've been telling ghost stories in the great hall for the past two hours, after dinner.
[16:46] <Mistyck> cool!
[16:47] <kirienne> sounds like fun :-)
[16:47] <Shiral> Cool!
[16:47] <Mistyck> KK:  Nancy passed on the message, thanks for letting me take notes
[16:47] <Shiral> Spoooooky
[16:47] <Laura> any ghosts for house guests?
[16:47] <Bynw> did any of them show up??
[16:47] <KK> We ate enchiladas and ice cream with this nifty lemoncella liquor over it (and with strawberries).  Yum.
[16:47] <Mistyck> ooh, yummy!
[16:47] <Laura> mmmmmmm
[16:47] <kirienne> my, that does sound vera yummy
[16:47] <Shiral> Sounds good
[16:48] <KK> It was excellent.  Tomorrow they all go home, and new ones arrive on Wednesday.  Whew!
[16:48] <Mistyck> KK:  Meet Rae, she's a new chatter
[16:48] <Shiral> How was your week in other respects, Katherine
[16:48] <Samuel> Hello KK
[16:48] <Shiral> Good heavens, Katherine
[16:48] <KK> Hello, Rae.
[16:48] <kirienne> my, a busy household
[16:48] <KK> Farbster is a new name to me, too.
[16:48] <Rae> Hi Katherine
[16:48] <Mistyck> yes
[16:48] <Shiral> The Hotel Katherine
[16:49] <KK> Practically.  I have to strip all the beds and wash linens tomorrow, and then remake the beds by Wednesday.
[16:49] <Mistyck> yikes!
[16:49] <KK> Lucy doesn't come until Thursday.
[16:49] <Mistyck> here comes Nancy
[16:49] <Shiral> We'll all be right over to help!
[16:49] <Mistyck> yeppers :)
[16:49] <Shiral> Enlist the cats, too
[16:50] <Mistyck> and the dogs
[16:50] <KK> We did eat well, though.  One of our guests cooked on Friday.
[16:50] <Laura> and the resident ghosts.  They should have to earn their keep
[16:50] <Mistyck> they can help clean up the kitchen
[16:50] <KK> So it was my turn tonight.
[16:50] <Mistyck> ooh, neat KK
[16:50] <KK> We had chicken marsala that night.
[16:50] <Shiral> Hmmmmm,  I'll have to think up a good meal to cook for you and Scott when I come
[16:50] <Shiral> <G>
[16:50] <kirienne> yummmm
[16:51] <KK> And the lemoncella was courtesty of them as well.
[16:51] <Mistyck> yikes, Nancy must be having trouble
[16:51] <Mistyck> Shiral: why don't you take your Russian cookbook with you?
[16:51] <Shiral> What is lemoncella like?
[16:51] <Shiral> Ah, but by then, I'll be deep in Italian mode <G>
[16:51] <KK> It's a lemon liquor, served very, very cold, in tiny glasses--and it's scrummy!
[16:51] <kirienne> LOL
[16:51] <Mistyck> Italian is yummy too:)
[16:52] <Shiral> Oooooooo.....
[16:52] <Mistyck> ooh, sounds evil
[16:52] <kirienne> that liquor sounds delightful
[16:52] <Mistyck> deliciously evil that is ;)
[16:52] <Laura> I had it once when I was in Italy.  It was delicioso
[16:52] <KK> Our guests come from Palermo, in Sicily.  Two are Americans living there many years, and two are young Italians, just in their first year of university--and very fluent in English.  I've known the one for nearly 10 years.
[16:53] <Shiral> I think I may have seen it at Trader Joes...
[16:53] <KK> Comes in a long, tall-necked bottle.
[16:53] <Shiral> Hmmm, maybe not
[16:53] <farbster> i finally get to be here with KK! hooray!
[16:53] <Mistyck> yeah!
[16:54] <KK> Different sizes may come in different bottles.
[16:54] <farbster> Katherine - thanks for the letter...i'm getting it framed this week
[16:54] <Mistyck> hanging around has it's benefits, Farb :D
[16:54] <KK> Well, I'm honored.
[16:54] <Laura> I think I may still have my mini bottle that I had
[16:54] <farbster> i just dumped my daugher off on my wife and said, "gimme 5 min"
[16:54] <Shiral> Katherine's letters are WORTH framing <G>
[16:54] <Mistyck> cool, Farb :D
[16:54] <KK> I have a teeny-weeny bottle of Holy Hand Grenade that Scott got me as emergency rations for my office.  I'm not allowed to drink it.
[16:55] <Laura> lol
[16:55] <Bynw> and marriage certs with her signature too are good :0)
[16:55] <Mistyck> loo
[16:55] <Mistyck> oops, lol
[16:55] <Shiral> Good Heavens, I didn't know there WAS such a liqueur!

[16:58] <Sedina> as much as I hate to say this, I'm losing daylight and those flowers are still waiting to be planted.   
[16:58] <Shiral> Katherine, I heard from a fan of yours living in Paris
[16:58] <Laura> ooh, that sounds fun

[16:59] <KK> So Shiral will be in Russian.
[16:59] <Harvey> Wow.  Russian rights to the anthology?  That's great!
[16:59] <Mistyck> :)
[16:59] <Shiral> So will Katherine <G>
[16:59] <KK> Nighters, Sedina.
[16:59] *** Sedina has quit IRC (Quit: kilts...where are those kilts)
[16:59] <Olympia> Not only do we get Gencon in Indy this year but we ALSO get one in December here in Anaheim!
[16:59] <Shiral> And I don't know a word beyond Da and Nyet
[16:59] <farbster> wow - i took russian in high school...might have to try to pick those...
[16:59] <farbster> where would one get them?
[17:00] <Olympia> Sure you do, Shiral - borsht, Romanov, caviar...
[17:00] <Shiral> Well...yes
[17:00] <Olympia> piroskhi
[17:00] <Wrengl> blini
[17:00] <Shiral> But they require little translation <G>
[17:00] <Wrengl> to go with the caviar
[17:00] <KK> Good question.  I've got the first two, but they're in the process of buying them all.
[17:00] <Mistyck> and VODKA
[17:00] <farbster> pravda and most importantly, vodka
[17:00] <Olympia> oook vodka
[17:00] <Olympia> and slava
[17:00] <KK> We want to go to St. Petersburg and see the new Amber Room!
[17:00] <Mistyck> ooh, cool!
[17:00] <Wrengl> that looks spectacular!
[17:01] <Shiral> Anyhow, it was funny, Theodore asked me "Have you heard of Deryni Tales? I just picked up a copy last week!"
[17:01] <Mistyck> lol
[17:01] <KK> We may do a Danube cruise with that next year.
[17:01] <farbster> amber room? what's that? i was in SP when it was Leningrad
[17:01] <Shiral> I said yes, I'd heard of it
[17:01] <kirienne> LOL
[17:01] <Wrengl> lol shiral
[17:01] <KK> Tee-hee, Shiral!
[17:01] <Mistyck> ooh, Danube is wonderful..
[17:01] <Shiral> Then he opened it up and said  "Oh my God, are you this SAME person??"
[17:01] <Mistyck> lol
[17:01] <Wrengl> it is a recreation of a room lined with amber, farbster
[17:01] <KK> It disappeared during WW II, was lined completely in amber, one of the great wonders of the world.
[17:02] <KK> They've redone it from photographs.
[17:02] <Wrengl> the original was stolen by the nazis in WW2 and lost
[17:02] <Shiral> Wow, THAT would be some sight
[17:02] <Mistyck> but they've been working on it for years now
[17:02] <kirienne> that will be something to see
[17:02] <Mistyck> I think it's all completed now
[17:02] <Rae> They were working on it when I was there
[17:02] <Wrengl> 25 years in the making
[17:02] <farbster> just found it on google...it snowed when i was there...burr
[17:02] <Wrengl> yes it is mistyck
[17:02] <KK> And there was rumor a couple of weeks ago that someone might be on the trail of tracking down the original one, which was last seen being loaded on a train by the Nazis.
[17:02] <Shiral> A Danube cruise would be neat
[17:02] <farbster> did anyone see the show on russian history on cable last week?
[17:03] <Mistyck> ooh, that would be soo wonderful if they could find the original stuff
[17:03] <Wrengl> it would be neat if they found the original
[17:03] <Mistyck> gmta Pat
[17:03] <Mistyck> Katherine:  any neat ideas for CM2?
[17:04] <KK> I've also heard of rooms lined totally in malachite--which always makes me think of our Olympia, who at least <used> to be a malachite fan.
[17:04] <Olympia> ::urp:: no cruises
[17:04] <Mistyck> maybe a chapter on "Alaric meets the Honey Pot"?
[17:04] <Shiral> I kind of like Malachite myself
[17:04] *** Wrengl has quit IRC (User has been mind-ripped)
[17:04] *** Wrengl sets mode: +o Wrengl
[17:04] <DeryniBot>  Wrengl uses a Transfer Portal to join the chat in #Deryni_Destinations
[17:04] <Mistyck> yikes
[17:04] <Olympia> I love malachite! And amethyst and amber :)
[17:04] <KK> Haven't had a chance to work on it at all during the last week.
[17:04] <Mistyck> wb Pat
[17:04] <Rae> ward cubes made of amber and malachite
[17:04] <Wrengl> rehi all
[17:04] <Shiral> But a room with Malachite walls would be a little...dark
[17:04] <Mistyck> aah, ok
[17:04] <kirienne> poor Pat, bad peer, bad bad peer
[17:04] <farbster> malachite is green? That room is amazing...
[17:04] <Wrengl> yes it would be dark
[17:04] <KK> Well, one tends to put in lots of mirrors, too.
[17:04] <Shiral> Malachite is green
[17:04] <Shiral> But beautiful
[17:05] <farbster> st. pete has more canals than amsterdam...did anyone know that?
[17:05] <Shiral> Olympia, we must have been related in some past life, I like amethyst and amber, too
[17:05] * Mistyck didn't know that!
[17:05] <KK> The original amber room wasn't very big.  When it was then gifted to the Tsar, panels of mirror were inserted to make it larger--and also to better show off the fine workmanship.
[17:05] * kirienne didn't know that either
[17:05] <Wrengl> i am more of a sapphire and blue zircon fan
[17:05] <Shiral> St. Petersburg was called the Venice of the NOrth

[17:13] <Olympia> ::getting out the tissues::

[17:17] <KK> They can be desperately expensive.
[17:17] <Wrengl> those two would have to be special ordered
[17:17] <Shiral> Araxie probably has some ocean pearls
[17:17] <Shiral> =o)
[17:17] <Mistyck> these are made with Indian Gold which is 22k
[17:17] <Wrengl> besides we do not like South African diamonds
[17:17] <Shiral> AND Diamonds
[17:17] <Wrengl> only would want Australian ones
[17:18] <Olympia> Renata just did an amazing research article on pearls that will be printed in the Ars Caidis (our Kingdom's arts & sciences publication)
[17:18] <Olympia> NO SOUTH AFRICAN DIAMONDS
[17:18] <Wrengl> i am sure she does
[17:18] <Mistyck> how about Indian ones, Pat?
[17:18] <KK> Possibly.  They'd be the equivalent of Mediterranean pearls, I suppose--not that I've really heard of Mediterranean pearls, now that I think about it.
[17:18] <Olympia> Arkansas yes. So Africa  no.
[17:18] <Wrengl> Australia is good also Olympia for diamonds
[17:18] <Mistyck> did you folks know India has diamond mines too?
[17:18] <Shiral> She'd also have some jewels from the royal treasury, I'd imagine
[17:18] <KK> Oooh, Mistyck, that's right, Indian jewelry would be awesome!
[17:18] <Wrengl> I think Canada has some also
[17:18] <kirienne> I didn't know that
[17:19] <Wrengl> yes but you do not see that many Indian diamonds
[17:19] <Mistyck> and Ruby mines
[17:19] <Olympia> As long as no one is enslaved to procure my diamionds.
[17:19] <KK> Scott brought me a little 18K. gold band with enamel work from India a couple of years ago.
[17:19] <Olympia> ohhhhh Indian rubies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[17:19] <KK> And emeralds!
[17:19] <Mistyck> they are dark red
[17:19] <Wrengl> yes India has some nice rubies
[17:19] <kirienne> sounds verra pretty, nice dark red
[17:19] <Mistyck> not like the stuff you see in American stores...almost pink stuff
[17:20] <Wrengl> i believe sapphires also
[17:20] <KK> Mistyck, do you wear your pearls?
[17:20] <Mistyck> yep
[17:20] <Mistyck> yes, KK, every now and then
[17:20] <KK> Do you ever travel with them?  Like maybe to GenCon?
[17:20] <Mistyck> I can bring them with me, KK
[17:20] <KK> Cool!  Would love to see them!
[17:20] <Laura> I have a garnet necklace I bought in Spain that the sales lady said they get their jewels from India
[17:21] <Mistyck> I will be driving, so I'm not worried about them being in luggage, etc.
[17:21] <Wrengl> most of our gem beads come from India or China
[17:21] <Mistyck> yep, India has lots of precious stones that most people don't even think about
[17:21] <Laura> My jewelry always goes carry-on when I fly
[17:21] <Olympia> I LOVE Indian jewelry! In fact at coronation yesterday I wore my Indian outfit :)
[17:21] <Shiral> I leave most of my jewelry at home
[17:21] <Mistyck> cool, Nancy ;)
[17:21] <Wrengl> the faceted and cabachon stones come from all over
[17:21] <Shiral> And WEAR the best stuff on the plane
[17:21] <KK> Mistyck, did you hook up with that new fan who showed up a few weeks ago and was interested in maybe riding up with you?
[17:22] <Mistyck> No, Katherine, I haven't "seen" her here since.
[17:22] <KK> Oh, dear.  Has anyone else seen her?
[17:22] <Shiral> Haven't been around enough
[17:22] <Mistyck> maybe her parents said no....
[17:22] <Wrengl> i don't think so, what was her name, mistyck
[17:23] <Mistyck> she told me she was 23 but living with her parents
[17:23] <Shiral> Lady, wasn't it?
[17:23] <Mistyck> so I gave her my work email to assure her parents that I am "Legit"
[17:23] <Mistyck> yes, it was Lady
[17:23] <KK> Well, maybe money was a factor, then--even with having a ride.
[17:23] <Wrengl> i have not seen her around
[17:24] <Mistyck> my work email has a .mil addy...can't be any doubts about that
[17:24] <kirienne> neither have I
[17:24] <Mistyck> yeah, that's quite possible, KK
[17:24] <Shiral> Unfortunately, it often IS a factor
[17:24] <Olympia> alright my dear friends, I'm off to dinner.... hugs all around
[17:24] <Shiral> Night Olympia, Hugs
[17:24] <KK> Yes, we live in difficult financial times.
[17:25] <Mistyck> nite Nancy, enjoy dinner!
[17:25] <kirienne> nighters nancy and huggles
[17:25] <KK> Nighters, Olympia.  And hugs.  Write me about last weekend.
[17:25] <Wrengl> night nancy
[17:25] <Olympia> I will! I may even have some pictures :)
[17:25] <Olympia> Love to all!
[17:25] *** Olympia has quit IRC
[17:25] <KK> Does anyone have an update on Jasta?  I know her surgery is the 5th or 6th, isn't it?
[17:26] <Wrengl> i believe so
[17:26] <Shiral> fifty
[17:26] <Wrengl> have not seen her this week
[17:26] <Shiral> Fifth, rather
[17:26] <Mistyck> I am finally getting to enjoy my Jalapeno-Ham-Pepperoni Pizza...it only took almost an hour!
[17:26] <Shiral> She has been working hard
[17:26] <Andy_Hock> That sounds good, Mistyck.
[17:26] <Wrengl> trying to earn extra time for the surgery, i believe
[17:26] <Mistyck> it is wonderful...Pan Pizza ;)
[17:26] <Shiral> But the last I heard is that the surgery will be on the fifth
[17:26] <Mistyck> yeah, that's what she said
[17:27] <Shiral> She hasn't been online much at all
[17:27] <Wrengl> no she has not
[17:27] <KK> OK, that's Thursday.  Pray, everybody.  She's put up with this problem long enough.
[17:27] <Mistyck> yes!
[17:27] <kirienne> has not posted to the yahoo mirkwood group much either
[17:27] <Shiral> She certainly has
[17:27] <Wrengl> indeed she has
[17:27] <Shiral> And it's disrupted her life far too much
[17:27] <KK> Like, about a year now.
[17:27] <Mistyck> yep
[17:27] * kirienne has a direct hotline to God full of prayers for Jasta
[17:28] <Shiral> Yes
[17:28] <Wrengl> i am hoping she is totally well by CastleCon
[17:28] <Shiral> Burning the daily incense
[17:28] <KK> Yes!
[17:29] <Shiral> I hope she's totally well SOON and stays that way
[17:29] <Wrengl> indeed
[17:29] <kirienne> yes
[17:29] <Mistyck> Amen to that!
[17:29] <KK> Seriously, serious prayers would not go amiss here.
[17:30] <Shiral> And you stay healthy too, Katherine!
[17:30] <Mistyck> yes!
[17:30] <kirienne> I have requested prayers for her from members of my church's prayer chain
[17:30] <Mistyck> everyone needs to stay healthy
[17:30] <KK> I'm working on it.
[17:30] <Shiral> Yeah, it's been a strange and scary ailment for Jasta
[17:30] <KK> Hardly a month before I leave for the US.
[17:30] * Samuel is falling asleep at the keyboard. Good night all
[17:30] <Mistyck> nite Sam

[17:31] <Shiral> We'll look forward to having you here, KK
[17:32] <kirienne> :-)
[17:32] <Mistyck> I am still working on having you come to the Houston area, KK
[17:32] <KK> I think it's time for me to bail out, too.  It's 1:30 AM, and I've left Scott to clear away the dinner debris--which is only fair, since I cooked it, but I at least need to go downstairs and shout encouragement!
[17:32] <Andy_Hock> lol
[17:32] <Shiral> Good heavens!

[17:33] <KK> I hope to have more writing progress to report next week--but don't hold you breaths, since there are more guests Wednesday through about Monday.
[17:33] <Mistyck> we understand :)
[17:33] <KK> Fortunately, they're more Scott's guests than mine.
[17:33] <Wrengl> k
[17:33] <kirienne> LOL
[17:33] * Andy_Hock thinks KK ought to bring Scott to chat sometime so we can meet him.
[17:33] <Shiral> And take it easy if possible before the second wave of guests arrive <G>
[17:33] <Wrengl> yes indeed
[17:33] * kirienne agrees with andy
