[18:06]* KK (~kkurtz@OWIRCN-a465b34d.va.comcast.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:06]<the_Bee> Hello KK!
[18:06]<jemler> KK!
[18:06]<KK> Hi, guys!
[18:06]<Samuel> HI KK!
[18:06]<jemler> KK, did you remember Kings last night?
[18:06]<jlcsusara> hi
[18:06]<KK> I did.  It still isn't really finding its stride, alas.
[18:07]<Bynw> weeee its KK
[18:07]* Bynw huggles KK
[18:07]<the_Bee> what's it lacking?
[18:07]<jemler> I've also been watching Harper's Island on Thursday nights. 5 people dead in two epsiodes!
[18:07]<Bynw> the_Bee, to answer your question ... not yet other than i'm just on an emotional high
[18:08]<KK> It's lacking crowns and tiaras, for one thing!
[18:08]<the_Bee> Well, they have only 13 weeks to kill 24 people.  there had to be more than one an episode.
[18:09]<the_Bee> It's supposed to be a modern-day kingdom, isn't it?
[18:09]<the_Bee> it sounds more like Dallas or that ilk
[18:10]<KK> Yes, but our real modern-day royals still wear tiaras (the women), and the sovereign wears the crown to open parliament.  Of course, Kings seems to be more of an absolute monarchy, but still...  The queen and the princess should have worn tiaras for the ballet episode.
[18:12]<the_Bee> I haven't seen it.  I'm less likely to watch a show if I missed the pilot.  BTw, I just got The Legacy of lehr from my public library.
[18:12]<KK> Ah, glad they have it!
[18:13]<Bynw> thats a good story
[18:13]<the_Bee> Right now I'm in the middle of Elizabeth Bear.
[18:13]<KK> One of these days, in my copious spare time, I'd like to do a sequel.

[18:13]<Bynw> cools

[18:13]<KK> Shiral!
[18:13]<Shiral> Ho all

[18:14]* Bynw gives channel operator status to jemler jlcsusara KK Samuel Shiral the_Bee
[18:14]<@the_Bee> I hope you have fun doing it :)
[18:14]* Bynw gives channel operator status to Elim
[18:14]<@Shiral> O wow, Power!
[18:14]<@the_Bee> y!  We're all @deities tonight
[18:14]<@the_Bee> 1
[18:14]<@Shiral> So what important news have I missed?
[18:14]<KK> We've all got @'s!
[18:14]<@jemler> hi shiral
[18:15]<@Shiral> Well you know, if everybody's somebody, then nobody's anybody. =o)
[18:15]<@the_Bee> Hi shiral.  Sarah has news.
[18:15]* Samuel removes channel operator status from Samuel
[18:15]<Bynw> i've been having a supermegafantastic last 2-3 weeks
[18:15]<KK> Hadn't started on the news yet.
[18:15]<Shiral> Oh cheer up, Bynw. =o)
[18:15]<KK> What news does Sarah have?
[18:15]<Samuel> don't want to be a channel op.  I like being a peon
[18:15]<Bynw> Samuel doesn't want to have @god powers
[18:16]<@the_Bee> Wait til she's back.
[18:16]<KK> So, take 'em away!
[18:16]<Samuel> I already took them away from me.
[18:16]<@Shiral> Anyone presently HERE have news?
[18:16]<@jemler> I'N JOHN ALMIGHTY! LOL
[18:16]<Samuel> there's some certain power you get when you'r the only private amoung a host of gennerals.
[18:17]<KK> Bynw, what supermegafantastic things have been happening for you?  Me, I've just found a nemesis for Alaric, by name of Cornelius..
[18:17]<@the_Bee> I got my tax return done, and I'm supposed to get a stimulus check.
[18:17]* Temprus (~temprus@ircop.otherworlders.org) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:17]<KK> I don't get a stimulus check, but I didn't owe any taxes.
[18:17]<@jemler> So that stimulated you to do your taxes?
[18:17]<@Shiral> Is Cornelius near Alaric's age, or an Adult?
[18:17]<@jemler> hi temprus
[18:18]<@the_Bee> hi temprus
[18:18]* Shiral doesn't even want to think about taxes
[18:18]<KK> He's a couple of years older, and his uncle is--wait for it!--Bishop de Nore!
[18:18]<@Shiral> Hi Temprus
[18:18]<@jemler> agh!
[18:18]<@the_Bee> o boy.
[18:18]<@Shiral> Uh oh, I hear trouble in the wings. =o)
[18:18]<Bynw> ssweeeeet
[18:19]* jlcsusara has quit (Quit: Why is the alphabet in that order?   Is it because of that song?)
[18:19]<@Shiral> Sounds like a MacInnis clan in spirit. =o)
[18:19]<Samuel> trouble in the wings, trouble in the hallway, trouble in the court, trouble in the stable.......  and just about everywhere else
[18:19]<KK> His mother is a sister of Oliver and the late Sepp.
[18:19]<@Shiral> Too many deNore's and they're all nasty!
[18:19]<@jemler> if my parents had named me Cornelius, I'd ask Uncle Bishop to excommunicate them!
[18:19]<Temprus> Hello all
[18:19]<@jemler> i keep picturing Roddy McDowell
[18:20]<Samuel> hahahaha!!!!!  "Hey!!!!  Corney!  Come here!"
[18:20]<@Shiral> So what nature of trouble will Cornelius be making for Alaric?
[18:20]<Bynw> lol me too jemler
[18:20]<@Elim> I see nothing wrong with that name.
[18:20]<KK> Back then, it was a perfectly good name.  (But it <is> subject to change, if it turns out not to work well.  But it's at least a working name for him.
[18:21]<@Shiral> Well Nicholas Murdoch was orginally named Bevis, until Julianne asked me if there was going to be a "Butthead" anywhere in my story.
[18:21]<Bynw> KK just high on emotion
[18:22]<@the_Bee> Is he a religious fanatic, or just a bully using alaric's Deryniness as an excuse?
[18:22]<@jemler> Spiler Alert!
[18:23]<@jemler> sorry - Spoiler Alert!
[18:23]<@Shiral> You got to look out for those spilers unless of course you meant "Spider  Alert"
[18:23]<@the_Bee> bile me in ile. ;)
[18:23]<KK> He's nasty and he's been privileged all his life.  And there's a green monster constantly sitting on his shoulder, called jealousy.
[18:24]<@Shiral> Oh dear. Shades of Conall
[18:24]<@jemler> You mean pre-shades of Conall
[18:25]<@Shiral> Whatever!
[18:25]<@jemler> i'm just being picky! :)
[18:25]<Temprus> Bevis should have a friend called Capt Nates
[18:25]<@the_Bee> ?
[18:26]<@Shiral> Well, Bevis became Nicholas instead
[18:26]<KK> Right now, it's just that Alaric is a much better rider than he is, even though Alaric is not quite eight.
[18:26]<Temprus> Capt is Latin for Head, Nates is Latin for Buttocks
[18:26]<@the_Bee> <snicker>
[18:27]<@jemler> Techtonese! Remember the Newcomers!
[18:27]<@Shiral> Oh well, everyone has a caboose
[18:27]<Temprus> Tue but not everyone is a caboose
[18:27]<@Shiral> So Alaric is already ensconsed in Page hood?
[18:28]<Temprus> true even :D
[18:28]<@the_Bee> and most heople have a head.
[18:28]<@Shiral> Even Heople People
[18:28]<@jemler> So do most people!
[18:28]<KK> Not officially.  He's doing his initial page's training at the court of Cassan and Kierney--though that will change,once his father dies.
[18:29]<@the_Bee> Who's the pages' tutor in Rhemuth now?  Ewan MacEwan?  I'd think Nigel would be a bit young.
[18:29]<@Shiral> I would think Nigel is a page himself
[18:29]<@jemler> Considering that Brion just came of age
[18:29]<@Shiral> Or maybe a squire
[18:30]<@jemler> Is a junior squire called a squirt?
[18:30]<@the_Bee> At 14, Brion should be a squire at most.
[18:30]<@Shiral> Brion is a King, and he's ten years older than Alaric
[18:31]<KK> Brion is 18 when the book begins, and has just been knighted that morning, by his two uncles, Duke Richard and the King of Howicce and Llannedd, who is his mother's brother.
[18:31]<KK> Duke Richard is in charge of training.
[18:32]<@the_Bee> Remind me:  how long did Brion have to wait between his coronation and his emposerment by Alaric?
[18:32]<KK> A while.  After he's married.
[18:33]<@the_Bee> That makes me woder how he kept the Marluk at bay all that time.
[18:33]<@Shiral> The Marluk had to take Villain Lessons
[18:34]<KK> There's politicking going on in Torenth, too.  Remember, there was a change of heir in the lst book.
[18:34]<@the_Bee> ah.
[18:35]<@Shiral> And Cha rissa would still be a child, wouldn't she?
[18:35]<@Shiral> Charissa, rather
[18:36]<KK> Yes.
[18:36]<@Shiral> Soo.... do we get more Wencit in this book?  She asks hopefully
[18:37]<KK> Well, one would <have> to have more Wencit in this book, eh?  ;-)
[18:37]<@Shiral> ooooooo!
[18:38]<@Shiral> And naturally, lots more Brion. =o)
[18:38]<KK> Oh, yes.
[18:38]* Shiral is not really impatient, at alll.....
[18:38]<@jemler> as she bounces up and down excitedly in her seat!
[18:39]<@Shiral> Who, Moi?
[18:39]<@jemler> yes youi!
[18:39]<@the_Bee> Are you hoping to finish this one in time for Christmas? or even Darkovwe?
[18:41]* jemler sets out caramel cremes for everybody
[18:41]<KK> It must be finished by the end of summer (or thereabouts), but I doubt it will be out until next spring.
[18:41]<@the_Bee> in time for DR's 40th anniversary?
[18:42]<@Shiral> Oh  Jemler, It's just a dainty little hop!
[18:42]<@jemler> Bee, I hope you mean Deryni Rising and not DesertRose!
[18:42]<@the_Bee> LOL yes
[18:42]<@jemler> just checking
[18:43]<@Shiral> Where's Rainbow Dragon, these days?
[18:43]<@the_Bee> Since Sarah hasn't come back, I guess I can tell YOu:  she's engaged.
[18:43]<@Shiral> Wow!
[18:44]<KK> Good Lord!  To the guy who was coming in for her prom?
[18:44]<@the_Bee> Hr prom date made it to the dance.
[18:44]<@jemler> yes
[18:44]<KK> How old is she?
[18:44]<@the_Bee> junior prom.
[18:45]<Bynw> sarah is 17 (iirc)
[18:45]<@jemler> Apparently, too young for me to goose!
[18:45]<@the_Bee> or too old.
[18:45]<Bynw> RD is just out of it for now ... i keep calling him and telling him to come back to chat
[18:46]<@Shiral> Wow... I suspect there's going to be a wee bit of a wait for the wedding...
[18:46]<KK> Wow.  That's kinda young to marry. A long engagement, I trust?
[18:46]<@the_Bee> DesertRose has been gone a while too.
[18:46]<Bynw> KK i think so yeah they are waiting a few years
[18:46]<KK> Is she planning on going to collage?
[18:47]<@Shiral> I know I didn't feel ready for marriage at 17.... still don't, in fact
[18:47]<@jemler> So has Mystick, and JastaElf, and natlog...
[18:47]<Bynw> yes she is ... i think after collage for the wedding
[18:47]<@Shiral> College as in higher education, or Collage as in paper and glue?
[18:47]<KK> Ah.  Well, a lot can happen in that long.  And if it's the right match, it will only get better as time passes.
[18:48]<KK> And she's where and he's where?  Long distance romances are tough.
[18:48]<Temprus> depends on how well made the collage is
[18:48]<@jemler> I graduated from an institution of higher learning, and no was was surprised to hear I'd been in an institution!
[18:49]<@the_Bee> they probably wondered why they let you out, Jemler. ;)
[18:49]<@Shiral> All very true
[18:49]<Bynw> sarah is in AL and her BF is in CA but i think he's moving as she says "soon"
[18:49]<@jemler> :)
[18:49]<KK> He's moving to AL?
[18:49]<@Shiral> The cost of living in AL has GOT to be lower than in CA
[18:49]<@jemler> For he came to Alabama with a banjo on his knee!
[18:49]<Bynw> thats what she said
[18:49]<@the_Bee> How old is he?
[18:49]<Bynw> 21 i think
[18:50]* Bynw is full of info
[18:50]<KK> Yes, it's got to be cheaper.  Has he finished college?
[18:50]<Bynw> no clue on that one KK
[18:50]<@Shiral> I hope he doesn't try to rush Sarah into the marriage before she's ready
[18:51]* Sarah (~Almeta@D82662.974088.222DBB.15CB81) has joined #deryni_destinations

[18:53]<@Temprus> Hi Sarah, long time no see
[18:53]<@Sarah> hiya
[18:54]<@Shiral> She hath Spilled the Beans =o)
[18:54]<@the_Bee> You missed all the unwanted unsolicited advice.
[18:54]<@Sarah> lol
[18:54]<@Shiral> "Now don't you kids rush into anything!"
[18:54]<@Sarah> lol!
[18:56]<@the_Bee> Is your fiance in college?
[18:56]<@Temprus> "If you elope, don't do it in Las Vegas, it is not as cheap as they say!"
[18:57]<@Shiral> And alas, on that note, I must kick off a glass slipper and go; this is contraband chatting at my end.
[18:57]* Sarah hugs Bynw, Elim, jemler, KK, Shiral, Temprus, the_Bee, and Samuel
[18:57]<@Sarah> toodles Shiral

[18:57]* Shiral hugs Sarah back, then steps onto her portal and disappears in a cloud of blue steam
[18:57]<Bynw> dont be a stranger Shiral , this place has people in it every night
[18:57]<@Shiral> BYE! Don't have TOO much fun after I leave. =o)

[18:59]<KK> So, congrats, Sarah!  Tell us about him.  :-)  (All your virtual cousins and aunts want to know all the news!)
[18:59]<@Sarah> lol
[18:59]<@Sarah> well, hang on and ill photobucket a pic and give a link for visual purposes. ^_^
[19:01]<KK> We know that he made it in for the prom.
[19:01]<@Temprus> brb
[19:01]<KK> (And what are you doing living in AL?  Somehow I had the impression that you were a California gal.)
[19:02]<@jemler> She's a Sweet Home Alabama Girl!
[19:04]* duck (Mibbit@OWIRCN-f54332ce.bigpond.net.au) has joined #deryni_destinations
[19:04]<Bynw> hiyas duck!
[19:04]* Bynw gives channel operator status to duck
[19:04]<@the_Bee> Duck!!! hello1
[19:04]<KK> Hiyas, Duck!
[19:04]<@jemler> duck!
[19:04]<@duck> hello people and kk
[19:05]<@jemler> How's it goin Duck?
[19:06]<Bynw> how is monday morning working out so far duck? since you are already in tomorrow
[19:06]<@duck> hmm yes mondays - there;s a song about monday mornings
[19:07]<@jemler> Ah yes, Susanna Hoffs!
[19:07]<@duck> two songs then
[19:07]<Bynw> KK, you arent going to be available for the chat next week right due to the OSM retreat (i cant make it this year, maybe next)
[19:08]<@the_Bee> Have you had your first winter snow yet?
[19:08]<@duck> how fares kk?
[19:09]<KK> KK fares fine, but must go and fix supper.  But first, how's the new job?
[19:10]<KK> And yes, I won't be here next week--somewhere intransit back from PA.
[19:10]<@Sarah> note: hes emailing me a pic so it will take a minute.
[19:11]<KK> We have spring here in VA--everything bursting into bloom.  Deer ate my tulips, but redbud is budding, cherry trees are in bloom, dogwoods are getting ready....
[19:11]<Bynw> cherry trees? yummy
[19:11]<KK> Daffodils are done.
[19:11]* Sarah gasps! NOt The tulips! I love tulips.
[19:11]<KK> Flowering; I'm not sure they get cheries.
[19:11]<Bynw> fresh cherries off of a tree
[19:11]<KK> Deer love tulips, too.  But they only ate one side of the yard.  I've still got a few.
[19:12]<@Sarah> yay!
[19:12]<KK> Very bold deer in this part of the world.
[19:12]<@jemler> Sarah, what is your boyfriends name?
[19:12]<@the_Bee> Are they protected? or just reckless?
[19:12]<Bynw> the come into my uncles garden and he lives on the edge of town
[19:12]<@Sarah> Zack, and its fiance
[19:13]<Bynw> so he just keeps a crossbow handy
[19:13]<@duck> well if you or scott wander into your garden and say to yourselves "oh deer, deery me!" then the deer will visit
[19:13]<@jemler> Duck, have you ever seen a movie called The Good Witch?
[19:13]<KK> They're too protected, and need culling.  The City keeps talking about it, but nothing so far.  Sad, because they're very beautiful.  But there's just too many, and they eat things and cause collisions with cars....
[19:14]<@the_Bee> Wildlife manage requires common sense.
[19:14]<KK> A deer can really mess up a car.
[19:14]<@duck> or perhaps the deer want a better role in the deeryni books other than not being found at the start of DR
[19:14]<@the_Bee> management
[19:14]<@jemler> Put up a sign thatr says "No Deer Allowed. Violators will be shot on sight"
[19:14]<KK> I've seen the Good Witch.  Catherine Bell, as I recall.  And there have been two, now.
[19:15]<Bynw> deer here in des moines get too think sometimes in town and the city does offer bow hunting permits
[19:15]<@jemler> She tells the little girl "I will not dream of bunnies" and that's all she dreams of.
[19:15]<KK> They're talking about culling, and then donating the meat to help feed those in need--which is a good thing.
[19:15]<@the_Bee> Doesthe Good Witch have any Oz connection?
[19:15]<KK> No.
[19:15]<@jemler> Only through the munchkins
[19:16]<@the_Bee> kidding?
[19:16]<KK> Dreaming of bunnies stops the little girl's nightmares about scary things.
[19:16]<@jemler> And her name in Cassandra, not Glinda
[19:16]<@the_Bee> ah
[19:16]<KK> It was cute.  But I miss Catherine Bell in JAG.
[19:16]<@jemler> but when the bunnies drive her crazy, Cassie tells her "I will not dream of puppies"
[19:17]<@the_Bee> the tv show?
[19:17]<KK> JAG?  Yes.
[19:17]<KK> Very good series.
[19:17]<KK> We have a JAG school in Charlottesville, at UVA.
[19:18]<@the_Bee> I saw the first episode.  The dialog in the climax was drowned out by jet planes, so I never heard who was the killer or what his connection to the victim was.
[19:18]<@the_Bee> Can anyone enlighten me?
[19:19]<KK> It was an excellent series, and taught a lot about what JAG officers do--though I expect their lives aren't really quite as exciting as on the show.
[19:19]<@Sarah> http://s12.photobucket.com/albums/a249/pinkpnther91/?action=view&current=Prom2.jpg here you go
[19:20]<@the_Bee> OOOOH! a moustache!
[19:21]<KK> Wow, elegant gentleman.
[19:22]<KK> And what does he do?
[19:22]<@Sarah> thank you. I didnt even know he was going to wear the tux
[19:22]<@Sarah> he doent do anything at the moment, part time work in a post office where he lives.
[19:22]<KK> Well, of course.  A gentleman always has to wear a tux to the prom.
[19:22]<KK> Is he in school?
[19:23]<@Sarah> yeah but it was such short notice that i didnt think he would be able to get one.
[19:23]<@Sarah> no
[19:23]<@Sarah> hes 21
[19:23]<@the_Bee> no college?
[19:23]<KK> Actually, I was thinking college.
[19:23]<@Sarah> i dont know if is going to do college later on or not. its up to him.
[19:24]<KK> Hmmm.  Okay. 
[19:24]<KK> Anyway, I gotta go feed my sweetie.
[19:24]<@Sarah> okies
[19:24]<@Temprus> Be well
[19:24]<@jemler> nite kk
[19:24]<@the_Bee> you mean Oswald?
[19:24]<Bynw> ok have a good week and have fun at the retreat
[19:24]* KK steps onto her Portal, waves good night,a nd disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[19:24]<@duck> cheers kk
[19:24]<KK> Nighters, all.
