[18:02]* KK (~kkurtz@OWIRCN-a465b34d.va.comcast.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:02]<jemler> happy easter folks
[18:02]<jemler> K!
[18:02]<jemler> sorry kk!
[18:02]<the_Bee> Happy Easter, Jemler.  Hi KK!
[18:03]<jemler> KK, i don't know if it's like this with you, but my cable says that Kings has been moved to Saturdays.
[18:03]<Bynw> hi jemler, kk ... happy easter!
[18:03]* Bynw gives channel operator status to KK
[18:03]<KK> Agh, Guss biting my rings and drooling on me!  Happy Easter, gang!
[18:03]<the_Bee> Happy Easter, KK.
[18:03]<KK> Has it?  I hope it wasn't last night!
[18:04]<KK> My TV Guide is still listing it for tonight.
[18:04]<jemler> no, i found the next episode on saturday. you better check to be sure. my tv guide says it is on, but the cable box says no
[18:05]<KK> But I did notice that today's paper was NOT listing it for tonight.  I wonder what goes?
[18:05]<KK> I fear that moving it to Saturday will kill it.  Not that it's doing that well....
[18:06]<jemler> did anyone see Harpers Island on thursday
[18:06]<KK> Still, I'm a sucker for royal anything.
[18:06]<the_Bee> I saw harper's Island.  I was kind of annoyed that they haven't even found the first body yet.
[18:07]<jemler> it's kind of hard to find the first body, he got chewed up by the prop of the boat!
[18:07]<Bynw> Debbie-VB said to tell everyone Happy Easter, she couldn't stay
[18:08]<the_Bee> but they didn't even notice the shreds of flesh on the rudder.
[18:08]<KK> I saw the trailers, with the obvioiusly moving victim tied up to the prop and it starting to move, so the outcome was hardly in doubt, eh?
[18:09]<KK> Speaking of boats, isn't that great that they rescued that freighter captain off Somalia?  Good on the Navy!
[18:09]<Bynw> nothing on tv that i want to watch right now ... unless I was in the UK since I'm a fan of Doctor Who and Torchwood
[18:09]<jemler> i thought he got killed by the priates
[18:09]<Bynw> yes it is ....
[18:09]<the_Bee> R\True, but people's reacions to the murders is part of the story.  And I don't know how either victim 1 or 2 isconnected to the bride, the groom, or Abby.
[18:09]<Bynw> nope 3 pirates got killed
[18:10]<the_Bee> i pirate captured. 
[18:10]<KK> Yeah, and the one who survived was the one who'd surrendered.
[18:10]<jemler> did you hear the story of the 13 with the cell phone. she rand $5000 in charges texting in 1 month!
[18:10]* Temprus (~temprus@OWIRCN-bae6c7ca.lv.cox.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:10]<jemler> rang up, sorry
[18:10]<jemler> Temprus!
[18:10]<the_Bee> i read he was on the Navy ship negiciating when it all went down.
[18:10]<KK> That's a lot of texting. 
[18:11]<Temprus> Howdy all
[18:11]<KK> Yeah, but he'd already said he wasn't going back to the others.
[18:11]<Bynw> thats why you give a teenager a prepaid cell phone
[18:11]<the_Bee> hi Temprus
[18:11]<jemler> they said she received 20,000 text msgs in a month. her dad smashed her phone with a hammer and grounded her until the end of school!
[18:12]<jemler> i would have grounded her till graduation!
[18:12]<Temprus> should have had a phone with an unlimited plan :p
[18:12]<KK> Do you pay to receive texts as well as to send them?  (Goes to show how little I use texting.)
[18:12]<the_Bee> barn door locked, horse already gone
[18:12]<Temprus> for most places
[18:12]<jemler> i talk faster than i type, so i don't text!
[18:12]<Temprus> bee, if I had a teenage daughter with a cell, she would be on an unlimited tesxting plan :p
[18:13]<Temprus> heck, most family plans cover all phones on it for $20 or so unlimited for all phones
[18:13]<jemler> but only if she spells the words correctly, none of the gibberish!
[18:13]<the_Bee> I meant the 13-year-old
[18:13]<Bynw> kk, depends on the plan ... i use a prepaid cell phone so my texting both outgoing and incoming there is a charge, i could get unlimited texting but that would cost more and cant afford it just now
[18:14]* jlcsusara has quit (Quit: A day without sunshine is like .... night)
[18:14]<KK> We've got a lot of time, and it carries over--but neither of us texts much.
[18:14]<the_Bee> I have pay as you go.  Either I'm talking more than I realize, or the minutes expire too soon.
[18:15]<KK> I used to have a pre-pay in Ireland, that I'd top-up as needed.
[18:15]<jemler> KK, did you ever find thoe toasties or whatever they were?
[18:16]<KK> Here, we have both cells on the same account, and we don't have a land line except for the fax machine.  Even the internet connection is now on Comcast with the cable sub.
[18:16]<the_Bee> My landline is for Tivo only.
[18:16]<Bynw> my landline is Vonage
[18:16]<KK> Shreddies?  No, but we've found a very acceptable substitute in Kashi wheats, especially the cinnamon variety.
[18:17]<Temprus> What is a land line? ;D
[18:17]<jemler> out-dated
[18:17]<jemler> :)
[18:17]<the_Bee> old fashioned phone--the kind that plugs into the wall.
[18:19]<jemler> and a hush falls over the land...
[18:20]<the_Bee> any writing done, KK?
[18:22]<KK> A bit.
[18:23]<the_Bee> You said something last week about finding an old outline that was helpful.
[18:25]<KK> Yes.  And I got some unintentional inspiration this week from a local sadness.  One of our new tenants in our cottage passed away on Tuesday.
[18:26]<the_Bee> :( a friencd?
[18:26]<Bynw> thats not good :(
[18:26]<jemler> here too :(
[18:27]<KK> I'd only just met him, and was looking forward to getting to know him.  Sadly, he slipped and fell in the kitchen, broke his hip, and just didn't wake up from the anesthesia; lingered for a week, then passed peacedully.  But he was 86, and had had an incredible life.
[18:28]<jemler> the peaceful part is good
[18:29]<KK> Yes, his wife said he'd been winding down for about the past year and a half; still sharp as a tack mentally, but physically more and more frail.
[18:29]<jemler> how's she doing?
[18:33]<KK> Peaceful and serene.  She'd known it was just a matter of time.  She's only in early 60's, so it was hardly a surprise.  And at least he didn't linger.
[18:34]<Temprus> Sigh, I must away to my "Birthday Dinner" which they have been cooking for the last 2+ hours :D
[18:34]<Temprus> good night all
[18:34]* Temprus (~temprus@OWIRCN-bae6c7ca.lv.cox.net) has left #deryni_destinations
[18:34]<Bynw> cya Temprus, happy birthday
[18:34]<jemler> happy birthday temprus
[18:34]<the_Bee> Happy Birthday, Temprus
[18:34]<KK> Happy Birthday!
[18:34]<jemler> anybody know how old he is? my brother is 43 today.
[18:35]<Bynw> temp is younger than that ... not sure how old he is ...
[18:36]<jemler> according to my tv apprentice is on nexxt, not kings
[18:37]* jojo (Mibbit@C06FE3.84EB87.96384F.C2C7EB) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:37]<jemler> hi jojo
[18:38]<jojo> Happy Easter all!
[18:38]<Bynw> Happy Easter
[18:38]<the_Bee> Hi jojo.  Happy Easter
[18:39]<KK> Well, bummer!
[18:39]<KK> To apprentice, not to you, jojo!
[18:39]<jemler> lol
[18:39]<the_Bee> KIngs listed next Sat. at *pm
[18:39]<the_Bee> 8 pm
[18:40]<KK> Ah, well, at least it's not cancelled--yet.
[18:40]<jojo> I did have a bummer and had to reset my modem...thruderstorms earlier
[18:40]<the_Bee> we have Dateline NBC tonight, then Celeb Apprentice.
[18:40]<jojo> Little Dorrit later.
[18:40]<KK> PBS continues Litle Dorrit at 9 PM.  That's been pretty good, thus far.
[18:41]<the_Bee> Im skipping that. not in the mood for dickens.
[18:41]<the_Bee> They're sure to do a rerun eventually.
[18:42]<KK> It hasn't been too dark, thus far.
[18:43]<the_Bee> I have no idea what it's about, except a girl whose father is in debtors' prison.
[18:43]<jojo> and typical Dickens convoluted relationships and funny names.
[18:44]<the_Bee> There's a PBS special her about "Dickens's Secret Lover."
[18:45]<the_Bee> here, not her
[18:46]<jojo> Have to check my local listings.
[18:47]<the_Bee> I seems Dicken left his wife for an actress, then denied the affair to avoid scandal.
[18:47]<the_Bee> It seems
[18:48]<the_Bee> bloody rented fingers!
[18:49]<jojo> Did I miss any news from Gwynedd?
[18:50]<KK> Well, Kings or no, I've got to go and make dinner for my lads.  Cameron is home for the weekend, and I'm going to do a nice bread pudding before he heads off in the AM, back to Atlanta.  He's got another 3 weeks of his contract.
[18:50]<the_Bee> contract with whom?
[18:50]<KK> No news from Gwynedd.  Brion and Jared have ridden to a draw in the birthday tournament, and Alaric is about to get the prize for ring-tilting for his age-group.
[18:51]<KK> IT contract.
[18:51]<KK> Sorting out computer security.
[18:51]<Bynw> sounds like fun
[18:51]<Bynw> but then i'm a computer geek
[18:51]<jojo> Highly technical and useful to those of us in desktop support.
[18:51]<KK> He's enjoying the actual work, but doesn't like Atlanta particularly, and misses home.
[18:52]<Bynw> Atlanta is a nice city ... i have fond memories of it
[18:52]<jojo> That's the blessing of contract work..challenging then over..
[18:52]<KK> They've been putting in 14 hr. days, 7 days a week, for 3 weeks, and that's what he's going back to--and probably a trip to LA as well.
[18:52]<KK> At least it's work!
[18:52]<the_Bee> true.
[18:53]<Bynw> see the pm before you go KK :)
[18:53]<jojo> And all of the employeed say "AMEN"
[18:53]<KK> Amen, indeed!
[18:53]<Bynw> guess you just so it :)
[18:54]<KK> See you all next week.
[18:54]<Bynw> take care!
[18:54]<jojo> Have a good one!
[18:54]* KK steps onto her Portal, waves good-night, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[18:54]<the_Bee> nighters and good week, KK
[18:54]* KK has quit (Quit: )
