[18:24]* KK (~kkurtz@OWIRCN-b7b1e86b.va.comcast.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:24]<jemler> KK!
[18:24]<KK> Hey, guys.  Sorry I'm late.  I was stripping a chicken.
[18:24]<Shiral> Hi KK
[18:25]<Shiral> What was it wearing?
[18:25]<KK> slin and meat.
[18:25]<KK> Skin, too.
[18:25]<Shiral> Ah
[18:25]<KK> I've discovered the goodness of Costco roasted chickens.  Yum!
[18:26]<Shiral> They're very handy when it's hot and I don't feel like cooking anything
[18:26]<KK> Yep, and we get 2-3 meals out of one.  And Mr. Dog gets all the skin, for which he is appropriatelythankful.
[18:26]<jemler> Just remember the Colonel!
[18:26]<KK> Nah, don't like fried chicken.
[18:27]<jemler> the grilled isn't too bad.
[18:27]<KK> I haven't had a chance to try it yet.
[18:27]<Shiral> What a lucky doggie Oswald is!
[18:27]<KK> He is.
[18:27]<KK> We're thinking about getting him a puppy.
[18:27]<Shiral> Well if you think he could handle the responsibility....
[18:28]<KK> I think he'd be great at training a new puppy, teaching it how to be aa good dog.
[18:28]<KK> And it would be a friend for him in his declining years.  He misses Scrappy, and loves playing with other dogs.
[18:29]<Shiral> And when Oswald finally departs, you'll have the Junior Partner for company'
[18:29]<KK> Yep, and already trained.
[18:29]<KK> Realistically speaking, Mr O should have another 2-5 years, we think.
[18:30]<Shiral> Other than the Dog Days of August, how has your week been KK?
[18:31]<KK> Not bad at all.  Got some writing done, wrestled some icky paperwork into submission, went to a cool progressive dinner last night with one of the local car clubs.  (Yes, people really do still do progressive dinenrs--and it was a lot of fun.)
[18:31]<Shiral> Last time I went to one I was in College. 
[18:32]* Sarah (Mibbit@OWIRCN-cd947581.teleclipse.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:32]<Shiral> Hi Sarah
[18:32]<KK> I remember them about then.  It would be unheard of in Ireland, I think.  We never heard of it, in any case.
[18:32]<Sarah> wow...i forgot today was sunday
[18:32]<jemler> Hi
[18:32]<jemler> Hi Sarah
[18:32]<Sarah> OMG JEMLER! *tackles*
[18:32]<Sarah> Hi everyone
[18:32]<KK> Hi there.
[18:33]<Shiral> Congrats on tackling the icky paperwork, KK
[18:33]<jemler> OMG SARAH! *tickles*
[18:33]<Sarah> hey hey! *giggles*
[18:33]<KK> Slowly but surely.
[18:34]<Shiral> So has Se popped up again recently?
[18:34]<KK> Also got our tickets booked for Dragoncon, two weeks from now, over Labor Day weekend, in Atlanta.
[18:34]<Sarah> Awesome.
[18:34]* Shiral tickles Jemler and Tackles Sarah
[18:34]<Sarah> Ack!
[18:34]<Sarah> Hi Shiral
[18:34]<jemler> I can't tackle so I tickle! :)
[18:35]<Sarah> lol
[18:35]<Shiral> Take your nice cool summer clothes!
[18:35]<Sarah> Quick question: Any of you want a yellow cat or a striped cali?
[18:35]<jemler> And never laugh at live dragons!
[18:35]<Sarah> yellow cat will be MUCh younger though
[18:35]<Shiral> For thou art crunchy and good with ketchup
[18:35]<KK> Se made his appearance, and Alaric is mulling over what happened, and what it all means.  He and Duncan are on their way back to Culdi now, where Duke Andrew is dying.  But they're having an advanture; are getting to ride full-size horses rather than ponies, and are discoverint that riding all day, day in and day out,is much different from riding for a couple of hours at a time.  Can we say Sore Muscles?
[18:35]<jemler> Don't thet call those tigers?
[18:36]<Shiral> Well that's one way to keep lively kids under control...make 'em ache!
[18:36]<KK> We HAVE 3 yellow cats, and two calicos.
[18:36]<Sarah> oh.. well I was just asking. lol
[18:36]<Shiral> I doubt my girls would welcome a newcomer
[18:37]<Sarah> aw...
[18:37]<KK> They've also discovered that horses are much bigger inthe barrel than ponies, and stretch different sets of muscles.
[18:37]<Shiral> They don't always even get on with eachother
[18:37]<Sarah> So I remember.
[18:37]<jemler> Do you sent each one to their own kitty corner? ;)
[18:37]<KK> Mine would plotz if another cat joined the household.  Actually, they'd spray, which may be worse.
[18:37]<Shiral> Ew
[18:38]<Sarah> yeah..ew.
[18:38]<Shiral> No but I hardly have enough lap to go around as it is
[18:38]<KK> Thankfully, we seem to have resolved that issue.  Thank heaven for the little blue chill-pills that the vet has supplied.  They seem to have taken the edge off things.
[18:39]<Shiral> Mine fortunately don't spray, but they have little hiss and spit arguments
[18:39]<Sarah> But yeah, I have three yellow babies to find homes for as well as their mom. But im keeping the ONLY one that looks like her. :) Her Name is Archi.
[18:39]<Sarah> Shiral: sometimes those can be worse
[18:39]<Shiral>  I'll bet Alaric feels pretty proud for being able to ride a real grownup horse, though
[18:40]<KK> Oh, ours do too.  But today I had a major breakthrough with Penelope, Cameron's girl cat.  She's very distrustful of women, from when there was a female housemate in her kittenhood who abused the animals in the household.  I've been trying to get her to be my friend since October, when she arrived.
[18:40]<Shiral> Been too hot to chase each other around lately.  It's FLat Cat Season
[18:41]<KK> Today I took her an offering of peach yogurt--about a tablespoon in the bottom of the yogust pot--and she lapped it up, let me hold the pot while she did so, and didn't flee afterwards.  Major breakthrough.  I shall buy more peach yogurt, which I also like.
[18:41]<jojo> Peachy yum!
[18:41]<Shiral> Oo, so she's discovered Authors are much nicer?
[18:41]<Shiral> Poor thing having abuse in her past, though
[18:42]<jemler> And if you're very lucky KK, Penelope will share it with you! :)
[18:44]<KK> I share it with HER.  I eat all but the last bit, and she gets to lick out the pot.
[18:44]<Shiral> Nina nas claimed the footstool of my TV chair as HERS
[18:44]<jemler> Well, she does have more feet, right?
[18:45]<Shiral> This is true, but she gives me nasty looks if I want to put my feet up. =o)
[18:45]<Sarah> lol
[18:46]<Shiral> Giving a cat too much dairy   wouldn't be a good idea, any way. They can't digest it as well as we can
[18:46]<Samuel> Hello KK
[18:46]<jemler> when my sister was first learning to crochet, she made a small blanket. it looked like Arkansas. out dog, part terrier/dachshund claimed that for herself.
[18:46]<jemler> sorry, our dog
[18:46]<Sarah> aw..
[18:48]<KK> Re dairy, depends on the cat.  Gus and Nicky are passionate about milk, and have no problem with it.  Tillie drinks it sometimes, and has no problem.  The others don't seem to care about it, one way or another.
[18:48]<KK> Hi, Samuel.
[18:49]<Shiral> Izzy  used to stick her whole face in my milk glass in pursuit.  But alas, it didn't agree with her
[18:50]<Sarah> aw
[18:50]<Shiral> Pan didn't care at all
[18:50]<jemler> do you think they'd go for that soy milk stuff?
[18:50]<Sarah> ew
[18:50]* Bynw slips in quietly from his date
[18:50]<Sarah> Aha! hi Bynw
[18:51]<jemler> Sarah, shh. he was being quiet!
[18:51]<Bynw> hi'
[18:51]<Sarah> well techinally i was too
[18:51]* Bynw gives channel operator status to KK
[18:51]<jojo> Hi Bynw!
[18:51]<Sarah> sheesh..look at the typos.. *ahem* Technically**
[18:51]<KK> I've tried that catmilk that Purina does, but my cats don't like it.  And since I've never had a cat who can't deal with regular milk, I'm not worried about substitutes.  Why mess with what's natural?
[18:52]<Shiral> The "fake milk" did't go over well with mine.  I just don't give them any
[18:52]<jemler> have you tried goats milk?
[18:52]<Shiral> Hi Bynw
[18:52]<Sarah> yuck
[18:52]* BalanceTheEnergies (Mibbit@OWIRCN-8cd13031.pools.spcsdns.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:52]<Bynw> I dont give my little leopards milk
[18:53]<jemler> never do that, it'll wash out the spots! :)
[18:53]<Sarah> :)
[18:53]<jemler> hi balance

[18:54]<Shiral> Hi Balance
[18:54]<Sarah> jemler: PM
[18:54]<BalanceTheEnergies> DM is camping with her folks this weekend, so no game
[18:54]<BalanceTheEnergies> Have I missed much?
[18:55]<jemler> intense technical discussions on weather, gravity, and goats milk
[18:55]<jemler> :)
[18:55]<Shiral> And Roasted vs fried chicken
[18:55]<BalanceTheEnergies> Oh?
[18:55]<Sarah> LOL
[18:56]<jemler> forgot that one, my bad
[18:56]<Shiral> And whether Oswald should have a Jr. Partner to train
[18:56]<jojo> And a bit about Alaric & Duncan on a horsey adventure.
[18:57]<Shiral> And Deryni Archives the Zine V. 20 is now ready for ordering.
[18:57]<BalanceTheEnergies> That last sounds promising...
[18:57]<Shiral> http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/index.php?topic=412.0
[18:57]<BalanceTheEnergies> the nosrey adventure
[18:57]<jemler> i was looking that up and missed Osawld
[18:58]<Shiral> But alas, I am Contraband Chatting and must toddle off
[18:58]* Shiral waves, steps onto my portal and disappears in a cloud of blue steam
[18:58]<KK> Have a good rest of your shift.
[18:58]<jemler> well toddle back on whenever you can
[18:58]<Shiral> Thanks, just another hour to go
[18:58]<Shiral> Back next week

[18:58]<jemler> nite shiral
[18:59]<Shiral> BYE, all!
[18:59]* Shiral has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
[18:59]* Temprus (~temprus@ircop.otherworlders.org) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:59]<jemler> hi temprus
[18:59]<Temprus> Hello all
[18:59]<jojo> Hello Temprus..
[18:59]<KK> Hi, Temprus.
[18:59]<BalanceTheEnergies> hello temprus
[18:59]<Sarah> hey temprus
[19:01]<BalanceTheEnergies> Any word on the film?
[19:02]<KK> Screenwriter is working officially on the third draft now; I talked to him mid-week.  He things we're getting close, so keep your fingers crossed.
[19:03]<jemler> i'm double jointed, no problem! :)
[19:03]<BalanceTheEnergies> Sounds good.
[19:03]<jojo> any progress is great news!
[19:04]<BalanceTheEnergies> And the book?
[19:04]<KK> Moving along.
[19:05]<BalanceTheEnergies> Execellent
[19:05]<Sarah> jemler: PM
[19:06]<BalanceTheEnergies> Forgive me if I'm asking questions you've already answered, KK.
[19:07]<BalanceTheEnergies> I was reading in bed with Wimsey using my head for a pillow when I noticed the time...
[19:10]<KK> Alaric and Duncan are on their way back to Cuoldi with Llion and Tesselin, since Duke Andrew is dying.  Kenneth and Jared already left ahead of them.  The boys are riding full-size horses for the first time, and discovering new sets of riding muscles.
[19:11]<BalanceTheEnergies> Well, the muscles won't grow much unless they use them.
[19:11]<BalanceTheEnergies> How old would they be at this point?
[19:12]<KK> They've actually ridden horses before, but never for very long at a time.  I speak from experience when I tell you that a full day in the saddle, even if you're somewhat used to it, can leave you positively hobbling.  You may recall the scene in Camber of Culdi, when they're kidnapping Prince Cinhil, who's never been on a horse.
[19:13]<KK> They're about 7 1/2.
[19:15]<Sarah> Hey KK, heres something for you...
[19:15]<Sarah> http://icanhascheezburger.com/2009/08/22/funny-pictures-transport-acquired/
[19:16]<KK> Ah, yes, saw that one this afternoon.
[19:17]<Sarah> :)
[19:17]<Sarah> I figure dit fit the topic
[19:22]<jemler> ok folks. i need my beauty sleep. so I'll see you all next week. KK, enjoy DragonCon.
[19:22]<Sarah> toodles jemler
[19:22]<BalanceTheEnergies> g'night jemler
[19:23]<KK> Yep.  And I need to get to the kitchen and do something with that chicken I pulled earlier.  I hear the guys rattling things in the kitchen.
[19:23]<BalanceTheEnergies> DragonCon?
[19:23]<Samuel> KK check your Gmail account when you're done here.
[19:23]<Samuel> Good night all.  I'm out of here too.
[19:23]<jojo> Y'all have a good week!
[19:23]<BalanceTheEnergies> bye samuel
[19:23]<Sarah> night Sam

[19:24]* KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
