[18:13]* KK (~kkurtz@32F4F9.51CD80.9139F4.95062A) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:13]<@Elim> Morning KK
[18:13]<Bynw> hiyas KK
[18:13]<@Sarah> hello KK
[18:13]<@Mak> Hi, KK
[18:13]<@Shiral> Hi KK
[18:13]<Bynw> feeling any better since the retreat?
[18:13]<KK> Hey, guys.
[18:13]* Bynw gives channel operator status to KK
[18:13]* Elim hands KK a Didgeridoo.
[18:13]<@the_Bee> Hello KK!
[18:13]<@jojo> howdy KK

[18:13]<jemler> hi folks
[18:13]* Bynw gives channel operator status to jemler
[18:13]<@jemler> Hi KK
[18:13]<@the_Bee> hi jemler
[18:13]<@Shiral> Hi Jemler
[18:13]<@Sarah> jemler!!!!
[18:13]<@jemler> Shiral! WB!
[18:14]<KK> Yeah, still snurfing gunge out of my sinuses, despite having gone to the doctor on Monday.  Will go back tomorrow to check on whether there's something better I can be coing.
[18:14]* Sarah tackle-hugs jemler.
[18:14]<KK> doing.
[18:14]<@Mak> Hi jemler
[18:14]<@Sarah> KK: What are you currently doing?
[18:14]<@the_Bee> She's chatting with us.
[18:15]* Sarah chooses to ignore that statement.
[18:15]<@jemler> she's got the sniffles
[18:15]<@Shiral> Last week I was at work, and I got scheduled on desk most of the day
[18:15]<KK> Talking to you.  But I've been working on the book all week, and pretty much have the prologue chapter the way I want it now.  Brion is now a kight, and enjoying the tournament following the ceremony.
[18:15]<@the_Bee> did you pick something cruddy up at the retreat?
[18:16]* Sarah will be right back...
[18:16]<@Shiral> Hooray for book progress
[18:16]<@Shiral> =o)
[18:16]<@the_Bee> a kite?  IS he high-flying?
[18:16]<Bynw> Frank's pics of the retreat look cool. Wish i could have made it ... maybe next year
[18:16]<KK> No, I was sitting in the yard on Thursday, taling to my electrician while he fixed the pump on the fish pond, and the yard guy came and started mowing the grass.  I got a snoot full of pollen, that led to an allergy/asthma episode over the weekend.  Yuck!
[18:16]<@the_Bee> Ouch!
[18:16]<@Shiral> Ew. Not fun
[18:17]<@Sarah> Are you alright?
[18:17]<@Mak> I have an impossible to find leak in the liner of my pond.  It's getting to be more patch than liner!  lol
[18:17]<@jojo> sending virtual green tea and chicken soup
[18:18]<@Shiral>  /me sends Rhys with St. Neot's finest allergy meds
[18:18]<@Shiral> Hmm,
[18:18]* Shiral sends Rhys with St. Neot's finest allergy meds
[18:18]<@jemler> you must have typed a space begore the slash
[18:18]<KK> I'm mending; just have this stuff that I have to hack up periodically.  No infection; just crud.  I want it gone!
[18:18]<@Shiral> Not sure why it didn't work...
[18:19]<@Shiral> Yeah, not being able to breathe easily is miserable
[18:19]<@Sarah> KK: Are you coughing/
[18:19]<@Sarah> ?
[18:19]<@jemler> i know how that feels, KK
[18:19]<@Mak> Allergies are no fun at all
[18:20]* Chaoscat (Mibbit@OWIRCN-59a26429.client.mchsi.com) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:20]<@the_Bee> Hi Chaoscat
[18:20]<KK> Only occasionally.  Did a course of prednisone, and am using my inhaler (not the rescue one, which I needed over the weekend but didn't have, because I rarely have to use it), and also antihistamines.  It's partly just that it's that time of year.  Never used to be particilarly allergic.
[18:21]<@Mak> Hi, Chaoscat
[18:21]<Chaoscat> hello
[18:21]<Bynw> hi Chaoscat ...
[18:21]<@Shiral> Hi chaoscat
[18:21]<@Sarah> KK: Halls' has some new honey/herbal drops that are basically for coughs and such. they've got honey in the center.
[18:22]<@Shiral> I have to take allergy pills. And the over the counter stuff hardly even makes a dent
[18:22]<@jemler> hi chanscat
[18:22]* Bynw likes new people in the chat :)
[18:22]* Chaoscat has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
[18:22]<Bynw> and they run away :(
[18:22]<Sarah> lol Bynw ...lol
[18:22]<@Sarah> oh sry.. oops
[18:22]<@Shiral> We scared the chaos out of the cat
[18:23]<Bynw> i guess so
[18:23]<@Mak> I'm getting to that point, Shiral.  OTC stuff ain't doing the job
[18:23]<@Shiral> So any scary plots being hatched against Alaric, KK?
[18:23]<@Elim> Sarah, that stuff they call "honey" most certainly isn't.
[18:24]<@Elim> Then again I am a bit of a honey snob.
[18:24]<@Shiral> Well, those pills make my life a lot easier, Mak
[18:24]<@Sarah> well, it was an idea...
[18:24]<@Shiral> I don't go around sneezing constantly since I started taking Claritin
[18:24]* Sarah says she'll be back later...
[18:24]<Bynw> cya later Sarah
[18:24]* Sarah is now known as Sarah_bbl
[18:24]<@Mak> Something was in the air in CT the last couple days while we were there.  My eyes haven't recovered yet
[18:25]<@Elim> I blame TheDeryni.
[18:25]<KK> I was concentrating on Brion this week, mostly, and realized tonight that though I've included all the dukes or their representatives, I'd forgotten to give Nigel a part.  So I think I'll have him holding the Haldane sword for the ceremony.  Kenneth has the crown, Alaric carried the spurs, Ewan of Claibourne presented Brion, and Jared put the spurs on.  Richard and Brion's other uncle, his mother's brother, are the two presiding knights
[18:26]<Bynw> speaking of TheDeryni he just signed on
[18:26]* TheDeryni (~TD@Husband.Author.Wiseass) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:26]* ChanServ gives channel operator status to TheDeryni
[18:27]<@the_Bee> Hi TD!
[18:27]<@TheDeryni> Howdy all!
[18:27]<@Shiral> Hi TD
[18:27]* Sarah_bbl returns for a sec...
[18:27]<@Sarah_bbl> hi TheDeryni
[18:27]* Sarah_bbl hugs TheDeryni
[18:27]<@jemler> tinmes up, sarah
[18:27]<@Sarah_bbl> ok, toodles
[18:27]<@TheDeryni> :)
[18:27]<@jemler> hi td
[18:28]<@jemler> :)
[18:28]<Bynw> hiyas TD
[18:28]<@TheDeryni> 'ello, Sire.
[18:28]<@jojo> howdy back, TD
[18:28]<@Mak> Hi, TheDeryni
[18:28]* TheDeryni just keeps waving....
[18:29]<Mak> Bynw, cat naughties must be contagious!  I just had to fire a warning shot at one of mine!
[18:29]<@Elim> Warning shot?
[18:29]<Bynw> lol
[18:29]* TheDeryni ducks
[18:29]<@Mak> Pre-emptive scolding
[18:29]* jemler waves back at TheDeryni
[18:30]<@TheDeryni> Okay, question. Who here has a Kindle or Kindle 2?
[18:30]<@Shiral> I have a non-naughty cat doing her best to keep my laptop warm and furry
[18:30]<@Mak> So very nice of her, Shiral
[18:30]<@Shiral> KK, it takes a whole village to knight a king. =o)
[18:31]<@TheDeryni> Wait! Shiral's not working?
[18:32]<@Shiral> Not today, TD
[18:32]<@jemler> SHH! Her boss doesn't know! :)
[18:32]<@Mak> They let her out once in a while
[18:32]<@Shiral> Who do you think  gave me the day off, Jemler? =o)
[18:33]<@jemler> SHH! Her boss does know! :)
[18:33]<@TheDeryni> So, nobody's got a Kindle. Bummer.
[18:33]<KK> We like real books better.  :-)
[18:33]<@TheDeryni> I saw one today. Looks like real paper.....honest.
[18:33]<@Shiral> It's hard to feel really cozy curing up in bed with a Kindle. =o)
[18:34]<@Mak> I have been eyeing the one a friend has with envy.  Does that count??  lol
[18:34]<@TheDeryni> Yes, Mak. It does.
[18:34]<@Shiral> I'm going to let another generation or so go buy before I buy one
[18:34]<Bynw> ebooks and pdf reading are OK but nothing like holding a book in your hand
[18:34]<@jemler> Shiral, do you mean Kindle or Ken Doll? :)
[18:34]<KK> I've signed a deal with a branch of Amazon to do the audio recordings.  Maybe they'll give me one.
[18:34]<@the_Bee> Let the bugs get worked out first
[18:35]<@jojo> Any progress on DR audio?
[18:35]<@jemler> Can you get an electronic paper cut from an electronic book?
[18:35]<KK> They're doing the recordings.
[18:35]<@jojo> just eye strain.
[18:35]* Shiral smacks Jemler with a trout
[18:35]<@Dennis> I have a question.
[18:35]<@Shiral> A Ken doll reading a kindle!
[18:35]<@Dennis> I don't know if this has been asked before, but is the stuff in Codex II considered canon?
[18:35]* Shiral wants to hear those recordings...
[18:36]<@Dennis> I mean post-1128
[18:36]<KK> I talked to the narrator last months, and he sounds like a nice guy--fan, good voice. 
[18:36]<@TheDeryni> Well, your books...some..are on Kindle already KKI. I checked!
[18:36]<@TheDeryni> err, KK!
[18:36]<Bynw> me too Shiral
[18:36]<@Shiral> There's a KK2 coming? =o)
[18:36]<KK> It's mostly canon, at least as far as what I've written.  But I've already run into a glitch regarding Howicce and Llannedd that I'm having to work around.  Minor, at least.
[18:37]<@TheDeryni> Bee: The bugs are worked out. This is the 2nd generation.
[18:37]<@Shiral> Naughty Howicce..Naughty Llannedd
[18:37]<KK> Rob got carried away with a few things.
[18:37]<@Dennis> So Duke Ewan does die in 1129, unless you have a better idea? :)
[18:37]<KK> I think Illann does <not> abdicate quite as early as Rob has it.
[18:38]<@jemler> The one thing in the Codex I couldn't understand was, how could someone name every male in the family after himself? Sion Benet 35th for example?
[18:38]<KK> So far as I'm concerned, at the end of KKB, Ewan is still alive and kicking.
[18:38]<@Dennis> Cool.  Thanks!
[18:38]<@TheDeryni> George Forman did, Jemler.
[18:38]<@Elim> If they can make a Kindle that has the smell of 1977 Del Rey paperback scifi novel....
[18:38]<KK> Some families repeat the same names, generation after generation--though 35 generations is a bit much.
[18:39]<@Shiral> I think there is a reference in Codex II to Ewan's dying of a winter fever in 1129
[18:39]<Bynw> i personally dont know anyone more than the 4th
[18:39]<@jemler> I still don't understand it. I heard Benny Hill say that whose parents had no imagination? The parents of Efram Zimbalist Jr!
[18:39]<KK> That sounds about right. 
[18:39]<@Shiral> There's only one of me, unless I've been cloned without my knowledge
[18:40]<@jemler> There's only one of me too. Something that my family is VERY grateful for! :)
[18:40]<Bynw> lol
[18:40]<@TheDeryni> Something WE are grateful for, too.
[18:41]<@Shiral> It kind of reminds me of the Dr. Seuss story in which a woman names all of her 23 sons "Dave"
[18:41]<@jemler> :)
[18:41]* Samuel (~Samuel_@OWIRCN-0d3cdba3.pa.comcast.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:41]<@jemler> hi sam@
[18:41]<@the_Bee> Hi Sam!
[18:41]<Samuel> hello all
[18:41]<@jemler> SAm, sorry
[18:41]<Bynw> and i know sam wont want to be @godded so i wont
[18:41]<@Shiral> Most appropriately, the title is "Too Many Daves"
[18:41]<@Mak> Hi, Sam
[18:41]<@Shiral> Hi Sam
[18:41]<KK> How about Michael Jackson, and his sons?  No imagination.  But then, one must consider the source.
[18:41]<@TheDeryni> Hiyas, Sam.
[18:42]<@Shiral> THe kids have bigger problems than that!
[18:42]<KK> Hi, Sam.  Missed you last week.
[18:42]<@jojo> brb
[18:42]<@Dennis> Too much imagination can be just as bad as too little.  Jason Lee's son is Pilot Inspektor.
[18:42]<@Shiral> Then there's "Moon Unit Zappa"
[18:42]<Samuel> Thanks KK but, all was not lost.  I helped a friend move furnature into storage.
[18:42]<@jemler> I'll stick with John Michael.
[18:42]<@Shiral> WAY too much imagination
[18:43]<Bynw> thats not imagination thats just pure hate of ones kids
[18:43]<KK> BTW, gang, there's an excellent movie on Fox movies at 8PM,if you haven't seen it.  Phantom of the Paradise.  A rock & roll retelling of Picture of Dorian Grey.  <Very> good!
[18:43]<@Shiral> That too
[18:43]<@TheDeryni> Cool. Now I just need a TV.
[18:43]<KK> Oh, there are some amazing names out there, especially from celebreties.
[18:43]<@Shiral> Oh details, The Deryni
[18:43]<@Sarah_bbl> same here, TheDeryni
[18:44]<@TheDeryni> :)
[18:44]<@Sarah_bbl> ont he tv that is
[18:44]* Bynw wouldnt name his kids weird names
[18:44]<@Shiral> Use your Shiral cyrstal!
[18:44]<@Mak> Time for me to go.  I am being summoned to bartedning duties
[18:44]* TheDeryni raises an eyebrow, but says nothing
[18:44]<@Shiral> Bye, Mak! Nice to see you
[18:44]<@the_Bee> seya mak! glad you came
[18:44]<@TheDeryni> I just got off bartending, lol
[18:44]<KK> Then you'd best answer the summons.  :-)
[18:44]<@jojo> back.. Bye
[18:45]<@Mak> Night all!
[18:45]<@Dennis> Heh.  Have a good night!
[18:45]* Mak has quit (Quit: )
[18:45]<Bynw> good to have mak back sometimes
[18:45]<Bynw> need to get others back too
[18:45]* TheDeryni nods
[18:46]<@TheDeryni> Well, I'm starting my reread next week.
[18:46]<@jojo> started mine a month ago
[18:47]<@TheDeryni> Another KK reread. I love them.
[18:47]* Bynw is currently reading a murder mystery novel
[18:47]<@TheDeryni> Michael Connelly?
[18:47]<@Dennis> I just replaced my missing copy of Camber the Heretic.  Had to buy a used copy. Is Ace bringing them back into print too?
[18:47]<@Shiral> I seem to be reading Kushiel's Avatar lately
[18:47]<KK> I'm reading Honor Harrington, filling in the ones I'd missed.
[18:48]<@TheDeryni> Methinks I should read those.
[18:49]<KK> Finished Kushiel's Justice a few weeks ago, and am waiting for tne next one to come out in paperback.  Justice was excellent, one of the best in the second series.
[18:49]<@the_Bee> I'm reading a dorothy Cannell mystery.  someone is murdering all the charwomen in the village
[18:49]<@Shiral> That must be... messy
[18:49]<@Shiral> And now there's nobody around to clean up
[18:49]<@Dennis> Heh.
[18:49]<@jemler> I've beeb reading the History of Middle=earth
[18:49]<@the_Bee> still 2 survivors
[18:50]<@TheDeryni> I just read Brandon Sanderson's Elantris.
[18:50]<@Dennis> I just finished rereading the Lord of the Rings.
[18:50]<@Shiral> only 2 survivors in Middle Earth?
[18:50]<@jemler> i hope not!
[18:50]<@Shiral> ;o)
[18:50]<@Dennis> I was going to pick up the first Mistborn novel this week.
[18:50]<@the_Bee> no. charwomen in Chitterton Falls
[18:50]<Samuel> oh Mistborn is good.
[18:50]<@Shiral> I'm not quite ready for a Lord of the Rings Reread
[18:50]<@Shiral> I read them when the movies came out, but now I've got Elf Fatigue
[18:51]<Samuel> although I did, recently, find a flaw in the book.
[18:51]<@the_Bee> I seldom do rereads.  I just go through and look for my favorite parts
[18:51]<@jemler> I mark all my favorite parts with little pieces of paper
[18:52]<@Shiral> I open the book, and start reading whatever random page I get
[18:52]* Sarah_bbl is now known as Sarah
[18:52]<@Sarah> Ow.
[18:52]<KK> What flaw, Sam?
[18:52]<@TheDeryni> Got it because of a quote: "Elantris, Brandon Sanderson's excellent debut novel, is marked by vivid strongly drawn characters (including a memorable female character) and ingenious plot twists that will keep the reader turning pages. Don't miss it!
[18:52]<@jojo> I used to skip parts but now i don't
[18:52]* jemler is now known as Sarah_bbl
[18:52]<@TheDeryni> She says don't miss it, I don't.
[18:52]<@Sarah> grr jemler
[18:53]<@Sarah_bbl> lol

[18:54]<@TheDeryni> I haven't read Mistborn yet.
[18:54]<KK> Well, I wanta go watch Phantom of the Paradise, so I'd better sign off.  See you next week, guys.
[18:54]<@Sarah> jemler: im eating scalloped potatoes and im cramping cuz of that freak rain torrent earlier.
[18:55]* KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight,a nd disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[18:55]<@jemler> next weeek, KK. btw Kinga hasn't been on for 2 weeks.
