[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:41:09] Join KK has joined this channel (~kkurtz@OWIRCN-b7b1e86b.va.comcast.net).
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:41:14] <AnnieUK> well she's going to have to come to Novacon with me, so she'd best get used to the idea
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:41:15] <Evie> Hi KK
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:41:17] <the_Bee> hello KK!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:41:18] <BalanceTheEnergies> Hello KK
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:41:19] <AnnieUK> hello KK
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:41:19] <jemler> KK
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:41:28] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:41:30] <KK> Hi, All.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:41:58] <DesertRose> How's things?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:42:13] <KK> Not bad. Hanging in there.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:42:23] <Evie> I Googled the young actor you said might be a good pic to play Kelson, KK. I almost regret being so old that all I can offer that gorgeous boy is a platter of cookies and milk. ;-)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:42:36] <jemler> my bad. Leverage is on tnt herde in Ohio at 9PM
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:42:39] <the_Bee> who is he?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:42:43] <KK> Kinda easy on the eyes, isn't he?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:42:51] <AnnieUK> cute
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:42:55] <the_Bee> give us a link!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:43:00] <DesertRose> He's pretty yummy, if more for my daughter's generation than mine. :)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:43:00] <AnnieUK> my DD would love him (waaahhh)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:43:03] <Evie> hang on...let me find the name again. Something Huffman. Logan, I think
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:43:12] <KK> Played the FBI agent's teenaged son in the recent remake of V.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:43:17] <AnnieUK> anything to get her away from Twilight and Robert Pattinson
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:43:48] <KK> My screenwriter says the lad can act.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:43:59] <Evie> http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2943468/
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:44:01] <jemler> logan huffman?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:44:01] <DesertRose> http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/index.php?topic=2.90
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:44:14] <DesertRose> Scroll down, he's in one of the messages toward the bottom.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:44:24] <AnnieUK> I told her that Taylor Lautner was better looking than RPatz and got the "muuuuuummmm" reaction
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:44:42] <BalanceTheEnergies> That's important. Kelson changes a lot, and the studio must want another tentpole.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:44:47] <jemler> Logan Huffman is 29
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:44:56] <jemler> 21 rather
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:45:04] <Evie> I don't get the whole Robert Pattinson attraction, I must confess. Then again, i thought he looked better as Cedric in the HP movie.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:45:09] <DesertRose> Me too Evie.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:45:19] <KK> Well, he'd be playing 16 in the film. (They've bumped Kelson's age up a bit.)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:45:35] <Evie> 21 can usually get away with playing 16
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:45:41] <DesertRose> That's not too outrageous. It can be done, with proper makeup and hair and clothes.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:45:49] <KK> Yeah, he looked young in V.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:45:53] <the_Bee> can 21-yr-old play a convincing 14-yr-old?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:45:56] <AnnieUK> Oh that's whatshername from Lost in those pics with him
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:46:08] <Evie> most of the "teens" on TV shows are a few years older than the characters they play
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:46:25] <KK> Probably not, Bee, but they've chaned Kelson's age to 16.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:46:37] <the_Bee> something to do with CA's child labor laws maybe.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:46:38] <DesertRose> Yeah, and think about one of my favorite "teen" movies, Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The entire cast was old enough to smoke, if not drink when they filmed.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:46:42] <BalanceTheEnergies> Even camera angles help, the way they downplayedJackman's height in the X-Men.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:46:56] <KK> Kids change a lot in those transitional years--not that any of us remember from firsthand.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:47:10] <jemler> The girl Sloane was the youngest. she was 19
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:47:25] <AnnieUK> how old was michael j fox in BTTF?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:47:32] <DesertRose> Oh man, I saw this thing on Yahoo of the HP actors through the years. They were so LITTLE when they played in PS.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:47:35] <KK> Child labor is fine; they just have to have a certain number of hours of on-set schooling per day or week.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:47:42] <DesertRose> Yeah, he was in his early 20s then.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:47:43] <BalanceTheEnergies> Isn't that why the HP movies hae been filmed more or less continuously?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:47:49] <AnnieUK> yes,
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:48:00] <DesertRose> They've been trying not to let the actors age out of the characters, yes.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:48:02] <the_Bee> HP?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:48:06] <Evie> Yes. Can't have a long break between each or child actors grow too old
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:48:06] <DesertRose> Harry Potter.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:48:07] <KK> And they were pushing it toward the end.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:48:09] <AnnieUK> and why the Twilight pics have been done back to back too, because vampires don't age
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:48:11] <BalanceTheEnergies> Harry Potter
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:48:38] <the_Bee> oh yes. They did LOTR all at oone go for that reason.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:48:41] <jemler> Michael J Fox was 24 in BTTF
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:48:45] <AnnieUK> so if they wanted to continue the franchise they might be pushing it a bit
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:48:56] <AnnieUK> and he was playing what? 15? 16?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:49:02] <DesertRose> 16, I think.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:49:04] <AnnieUK> how old was Marty meant to be?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:49:07] <DesertRose> He looks young though.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:49:08] <Evie> Well, if you get Logan to play Kelson, KK, my daughter's guaranteed to become a fan. And I guess I'll start baking a lot of cookies.... ;-)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:49:15] <jemler> he had a drivers license, so at least 16
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:49:20] <AnnieUK> yup you'd have my daughter too
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:49:34] <AnnieUK> and no family conflict because Alaric is all mine
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:49:37] <DesertRose> Probably mine as well, as she's disgusted with the whole Twilight craze.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:49:40] <Evie> marty was meant to be around 16, I think
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:50:27] <Evie> My daughter refuses to jump on the Twilight bandwagon. Goes around muttering "Vampires don't sparkle!"
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:50:40] <AnnieUK> mine is gradually growing out of Twilight, but far from disgusted
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:50:43] <Evie> and thinks the storyline sounds creepy-stalkerish
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:50:51] <AnnieUK> I still can't see much of her wall for RPatx
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:50:53] <AnnieUK> z
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:50:55] <jojo> I hope this speculation means the shooting will start soon....?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:50:59] <DesertRose> My daughter said she tried to slog through the first book, but couldn't stand the creepy-stalkerish bit and thought the writing was abysmal.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:51:05] <jemler> with cameras or guns?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:51:13] <AnnieUK> well I keep telling her Edward is borderline abusive, but she's having none of it
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:51:16] <jojo> cameras!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:51:23] <jemler> LOL
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:51:38] <DesertRose> Of course, my daughter is a film/TV production major at the high school for the arts, so maybe her tastes are more mature than normal for her age.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:52:04] <AnnieUK> ah, how old, DR?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:52:05] <DesertRose> My DD said that if somebody told her he watched her while she slept, she'd be calling the cops on his behind.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:52:07] <DesertRose> 17
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:52:14] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:52:15] <DesertRose> 18 in September.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:52:29] <AnnieUK> mine's 13 in September so she's still into the whole Edward Cullen thing
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:52:34] <Evie> Well, yes, at that age hopefully it's more creepy than romantic. :-D
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:52:48] <AnnieUK> she still thinks he's romantic - deluded child
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:52:50] <DesertRose> Yeah, and there's a world of difference between a 13 year old girl and a 17 year old.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:52:57] <Bynw> hiyas KK
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:53:00] Mode Bynw gives channel operator privileges to KK.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:53:23] <DesertRose> September what, AnnieUK?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:53:29] <AnnieUK> 16th
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:53:31] <DesertRose> My DD is Sept 8.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:53:39] <Evie> My dd's b'day is Sept 19
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:53:48] <Evie> and she'll be 13 too
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:53:50] <AnnieUK> yours is turning 13 too, yes?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:53:50] <DesertRose> Wow, all of us got pregnant around Christmas, didn't we? :)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:53:54] <BalanceTheEnergies> This conversation makes me think of a beer advert: "There's a fine line between romance and stalking."
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:54:02] <AnnieUK> so just 3 days between them
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:54:03] <AnnieUK> cool
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:54:05] <DesertRose> And that's not true.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:54:13] <Evie> Yes, well, had to celebrate the holiday somehow, DR. ;-)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:54:19] <DesertRose> LOL, yeah. :)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:54:30] <jemler> At the risk of being kicked out of here, is DD her name or her description?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:54:36] <AnnieUK> well my sis is an infant teacher and she said to make sure any kid I had was oldest in the year
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:54:44] <BalanceTheEnergies> I know, but the advert gets played so often, the ubiquity lends it spurous credibility.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:54:46] <DesertRose> Dear Daughter, jemler.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:54:47] <AnnieUK> and our cut off is August 31
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:54:49] <Evie> I have a friend whose kids were born Jan 31 and Feb 2. I asked what she'd been celebrating 9 months earlier on both years. SHe said "Mother's Day"
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:54:56] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:55:00] <jemler> OK. I'm a guy.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:55:11] <DesertRose> KK, how's the book coming along?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:55:31] * AnnieUK shuts up for the important bits
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:56:51] <KK> It's going ok now. Brief interruption, as my mom had a minor stroke 10 days ago in SF, but she's doing well, is in rehab for 3-4 weeks. I'll probably have to fly out to SF when she's ready to come home, to help make important cecisions about what comes next.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:57:02] <DesertRose> Oh, geez. Yikes!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:57:06] <AnnieUK> ah no
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:57:09] <Evie> sorry to hear that. :-(
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:57:09] <AnnieUK> :(
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:57:14] <KK> Yikes, indeed.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:57:18] <the_Bee> Glad to know she's recovering.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:57:20] <BalanceTheEnergies> Sorry to hear that, KK. Hope recovery is speedy.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:57:49] <DesertRose> That had to be a scary experience.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:58:06] <KK> She's in good spirits, though, and her medical facility is said to be the best in the West. We shall see. She turned 85 on the 4th and had her stroke on the 7th. Luckily, my sister was there visiting when it happened, and they got her to the ER very quickly.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:58:21] <Evie> Oh, good!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:58:29] <Evie> Time is critical with a stroke
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:58:30] <DesertRose> About this time last year, my mom had to have a pacemaker put in and that was mega stressful for my family, so I can kind of sympathize.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:58:49] <DesertRose> Good thing your sister was there. Whew.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:59:08] <KK> Hopefully, this will be mostly a wakeup call--as in, do NOT stop taking your BP meds just because you had one bout of throwing up.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:59:18] <the_Bee> so your mom's a yankee doodle dandy, KK?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:59:21] <DesertRose> Seriously.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:59:23] <KK> Yep.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [19:59:53] <AnnieUK> my MIL had a stroke 18 months or so back - scary stuff
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:00:08] <KK> My sister, niece, and 2 nephews had taken her on a sailing ship out in the Bay that does a Sunday brunch. Sounds like it was super.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:00:22] <DesertRose> That does sound awesome.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:00:22] <Evie> sounds fun
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:01:07] <KK> Yep. Hopefully, there will be more of same. She's still talking about coming to us for Christmas again, though she will fly this time instead of taking the train.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:01:38] <KK> Plans to do Darkover, too.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:01:42] <DesertRose> Wow.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:02:14] <KK> Stubborn is her middle name--though perhaps determined is a better descriptor, in this case. :-)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:02:25] <Evie> :-)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:02:29] <DesertRose> LOL, good thing, that, sometimes. :)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:02:32] <jemler> Got sidetracked by the phoine. Sorry to hear about your Mom, KK. But glad she's doing better.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:03:08] <the_Bee> What's the saying--"I am determined, you are stubborn, she is pig-headed"?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:03:15] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:03:45] <KK> She was pig-headed about not resuming her meds, she is determined re the physio.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:03:47] <jojo> That will to endure certainly has helped my mom... who is 90 and the humorist of her "senior dorm".
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:03:57] <AnnieUK> yuh huh, that's me, my DD and my DH in that order
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:04:10] <jojo> But she is like an accountant in taking her meds.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:04:14] <jemler> with my family it was: "I'll never die, Heaven doesn't want me, and Hell's afraid I'll take over"
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:04:20] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:04:26] <DesertRose> That's my family, too, jemler.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:04:27] <DesertRose> BRB
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:04:48] <KK> She was already talking about assisted living. With luck, she can eke out another 6 mo. or so in her condo, with home help, and have time to make an informed decision about where she'd like to be assisted.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:05:52] <jojo> Do you have any unassisted Senior apts or condos available? My mom is really enjoying having a private apartment in The Terrace.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:06:09] <KK> On another note, Bynw, how was the wedding, and did you get to take a honeymoon?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:06:27] <BalanceTheEnergies> a graduated sort of place would be good, so she isn't uprooted from new friends later on.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:07:02] <KK> She was looking here in Staunton; I need to make more specific inquiries.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:07:49] <KK> She's leery about the summer heat here; I reminded her that we have air conditioning, even in Virginia! But what if the power fails, with the aging power grid? Grrr.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:07:50] <Evie> My very weird DH is telling the cats not to cluck (yes, you read that right) so they won't interrupt my KK chat time.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:08:08] <KK> They cluck?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:08:18] <the_Bee> their hunting call?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:08:38] <Evie> No. But DH and I do. We bonded over clucking the Theme from the movie "Exodus" in harmony
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:08:57] <the_Bee> Melantha did that when she was stalking a bug. k-k-k-k-
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:08:57] <AnnieUK> my cat is snoring beside me
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:09:21] <AnnieUK> but at least she's stopped sleeping on top of my copy of the codex now :)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:09:37] <Evie> Well, if you pick it up every 4 minutes, they stop sleeping
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:09:43] <KK> No cats in evidence here; just one big yellow dog.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:09:52] <Bynw> kk, the wedding was great and yes we got 3-4 days to spend on our honeymoon
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:09:56] <the_Bee> Melantha like peanut butter, I learned a couple weeks ago.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:10:08] <KK> Any pictures posted anywhere?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:10:15] <Evie> Mine can't sleep on my Codex; as much as I've had to open it lately, it lives in my lap practically

[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:10:34] <AnnieUK> hi Shiral
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:10:39] * Evie waves
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:10:41] <DesertRose> Hi Shiral
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:10:46] <KK> Hi, Shiral.

[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:11:19] <Shiral> I knew KK would come, it's my sunday to work. =o)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:11:21] <KK> Back to this clucking Exodus in harmony, Evie.... The mind boggles.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:11:28] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:11:44] <KK> I was away last weekend.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:11:46] <Evie> Yes, and before that, I was dating a man who honked like a goose
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:12:33] <Shiral> Have I missed any exciting news?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:12:34] <jemler> did you date a doctor who quacked?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:13:01] <Evie> No, but I'm going to start giving you 15 point penalties for roughing the readers with those puns, jemler. ;-)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:13:01] <KK> I'd say you'd been looking among zookeepers, but it sounds more like barnyard sounds.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:13:38] <jemler> this is where DR would sentence me to the Punitentiary.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:13:50] <Evie> I sometimes break out into clucking music when I'm bored at work. I had a former coworker call me out of the blue and say "I just asked my boss to cluck to me without thinking. She's looking at me strangely."
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:13:54] <the_Bee> OUCH!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:13:56] <DesertRose> Yes, jemler, straight to the punitentiary with you.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:13:57] * Shiral sentences Jemler to the Punitentiary
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:14:12] <Shiral> We feel Pun-itive
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:14:21] <jemler> and heeeere we go!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:14:26] <Evie> :-D
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:14:29] <BalanceTheEnergies> oh no, it's contagious.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:14:40] <Shiral> It's a pundemic
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:14:52] <jemler> pundemonium!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:15:00] <DesertRose> Unrepuntant, the lot of you. :)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:15:09] <Evie> I can't think of a pun, so I'll have to pun-t on this one.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:15:09] <Shiral> Look out for giant pundas
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:15:25] * AnnieUK groans and wonders why she came here this week
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:15:30] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:15:40] <DesertRose> KK's probably ready to shoot us or at least have the dog herd us back on topic. :)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:15:44] <the_Bee> Word Police--O-pun up!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:15:46] <Shiral> Kelric made you do it, Annie
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:15:47] <jemler> you have to work on your pun-ch lines!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:16:10] <Evie> btw, there won't be a new chapter of MoM up tonight, Annie, if I forgot to say. Too busy chatting to write it. ;-) (and other stuff too)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:16:24] <AnnieUK> no worries
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:16:48] <Evie> Ok, KK....In the Codex maps, Carthane is in two places. From the written description, I figure the one around Nyford area is right?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:16:52] <Evie> I hope?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:17:00] <Evie> (Since that's where it is now in my fanfic. :-D)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:17:24] <Evie> One map also has Carthane up near the Purple March, though, so I thought I'd check.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:17:26] <DesertRose> Still looking for a mod for the fanfic, speaking of fanfic.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:18:32] <Shiral> KK, how progresses the book?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:18:43] Part the_Bee has left this channel.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:19:03] <KK> The Purple March one is Right Out; don't know how it got put there--but then, Rob's maps in the Codex ware always a bit dicey.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:19:06] <jemler> something i said?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:19:24] <Evie> Maybe it migrated north for the summer?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:19:39] Join the_Bee has joined this channel (the_Bee@OWIRCN-5a2dccc8.ma.comcast.net).
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:19:40] <Shiral> Hitched a ride with the geese
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:19:44] <jemler> it is called a march
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:19:51] <DesertRose> WB Bee
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:19:57] <KK> Slowly, this past couple of weeks, Shiral. My mom had a stroke on the 7th, so I've been a bit distracted. She's doing fine, though; will spend 3-4 weeks in rehab.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:20:19] <Shiral> Ack, I'm sorry, KK! No wonder you've been busy!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:20:33] <Shiral> I hope she'll be okay?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:21:01] <AnnieUK> have you firmed up where it will end yet, KK? Taking the story up to Brion's empowerment or right up to the start of DR?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:21:26] <Bynw> Sorry to hear about your mom KK :(
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:21:37] <Shiral> LBM MUST recover!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:21:44] <AnnieUK> (I have a feeling I asked you that before - if so apologies. These late nights do for my concentration!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:21:46] <AnnieUK> )
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:21:51] <AnnieUK> (See?)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:21:51] <KK> I'm actually about to finish the second pass on Chapter 10, where Jared and Kenneth officially make Duncan and Alaric Cassan pages and take them up to Culdi, where they'll remain while Jared and Kenneth and the King go on progress into Meara--which is whre Kenneth dies, of course. And Alaric breaks his arm during that period.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:22:12] <AnnieUK> aw Kenneth :(
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:22:25] <jemler> does that mean we meet Bethane again?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:22:39] <KK> Will take it at least to the birth of Kelson, maybe farther.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:22:50] <KK> Probably not all the way to the beginning of DR.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:22:54] <jojo> cool!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:22:57] <Evie> Dagnabbit, Kenneth is one of the few men I adore who you haven't already stuck into a cassock! *muttering*
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:23:01] <DesertRose> YAYZ!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:23:08] <KK> Yes, we meed Bethane again--this time, seen through Alaric's POV.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:23:16] <BalanceTheEnergies> So we'll get the marital difficulties of Brion and jehana fleshed out?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:23:24] <Shiral> She doesn't stick him in a cassock, she puts him in a casket!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:23:36] <Shiral> Kenneth, that is'
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:23:40] <Evie> Yes, that's how all the KK men I fall for end up...cassocked or casketed
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:24:05] <DesertRose> Well, we all end up casketed in the end.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:24:11] <Evie> LOL. True.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:24:14] <AnnieUK> see, there are advantages to being totally predictable
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:24:31] <the_Bee> Do we meet Ryol while Brion is courting Jehana?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:24:38] <KK> Oh, and Kenneth brings Bronwyn to Culdi from Morganhall before he leaves with the king's party.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:24:54] <jemler> I saw somwething on tv once. "You can't outrun death. But you can make the bastard work for it!"
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:25:02] <DesertRose> jemler: watch it.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:25:17] <jemler> I didn't say it, i merely repeated it~!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:25:24] <DesertRose> Still. Behave.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:26:31] <jemler> Apologies to all those with sensitive ears.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:26:31] <AnnieUK> btw KK did you know Alaric is on Facebook?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:26:47] <KK> Nope.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:26:52] <Shiral> How modern of him
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:26:54] <AnnieUK> he is obviously very into social networking
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:27:12] <Shiral> With all he has to do, you'd think he'd stick to tweets. =o)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:27:22] <Evie> as are the Harry Potter characters, but they seem to like MySpace.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:27:32] <AnnieUK> and is friends with characters from Thomas Covenant and also the Wheel of Time
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:28:06] <BalanceTheEnergies> Oh, this is where I came in. It lead to the "to FB or not FB" conversation.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:28:12] <Evie> Maybe he got a Transfer Portal at Coroth, and so he's got more time for a Facebook, Shiral?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:28:38] <DesertRose> I didn't know for years that Robert Jordan lived in the same city where I used to live. Charleston, SC.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:28:39] <Evie> And for those other 10 kids Alkari wants to give him? ;-D
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:28:39] <Shiral> I didn't think Transfer portals worked temporally, Evie. Just locationally
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:28:50] <jemler> i think there has always been a Prital at Coroth. Probably in the Green Tower.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:28:53] <AnnieUK> well if the RSC can do Romeo and Juliet over Twitter I'm sure AM can be on Facebook
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:29:08] <Evie> Yes, but if you're not spending as many days travelling, you have more free time
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:29:30] <Shiral> I have a feeling Briony and Kelric could locate a portal and come running to their father with such important news. =o)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:29:37] <Evie> I think in some other tower, since wouldn't Alaric have found it by now if it's in the Green Tower?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:29:38] <DesertRose> I agree that there probably has always been a portal at Coroth; it's been a Deryni holding for an awfully long time not to have a portal.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:29:58] <KK> Bee, yes, we'll meet Ryol, and others of Jehana's relatives.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:30:09] <the_Bee> I wonder who was the last Deryni to know its location?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:30:11] <AnnieUK> do we find out what happened to Zoe
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:30:27] <Shiral> Brion's in for some interesting in-laws is he, KK? =o)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:30:40] <AnnieUK> since she and the other Morgan girls seem to disappear off the face of the planet
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:30:41] <KK> I'm sure there's one there; just have to think of a way to explain why the location apparently has been lost for so long.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:30:55] <AnnieUK> and I like Zoe :)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:31:01] <Evie> Lewys done blowed it up. Blowed it up real good.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:31:08] <AnnieUK> lol Evie
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:31:13] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:31:28] <KK> For them not to have surfaced in the later books, it's likely that something has happened to them, sad to say.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:31:38] <Evie> *points above*
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:31:41] <Evie> See? :-D
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:31:41] <Shiral> Better have the Transfer Portal Repair guys out for that one. =o)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:31:44] <AnnieUK> uh oh, bulk order of caskets
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:31:48] <the_Bee> Maybe Alyce's brother or someone died before he could pass on the location.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:04] <Shiral> Whoops, Gotta run, everyone
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:10] <DesertRose> See ya, Shiral.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:11] <the_Bee> bye shiral!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:13] <DesertRose> Take care.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:15] <Shiral> Gotta go help close up the library
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:25] <BalanceTheEnergies> Good night, Shiral.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:26] <Evie> uhoh.."something happened to them" refers to Zoe etc., or to portals?
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:31] <Evie> bye Shiral
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:32] <AnnieUK> night Shiral
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:37] <Shiral> Take care of what, DR?. =o)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:41] <jemler> night shiral
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:43] <DesertRose> You and kitteh. :)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:32:43] <KK> Nighters, Shiral.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:33:00] <Shiral> Nighters, KK, I hope LBM makes a good recovery!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:33:22] <KK> Zoe & co.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:33:31] * Shiral steps onto her portal, waves good night and disappears in a cloud of blue steam
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:33:34] <Shiral> BYE!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:33:34] <KK> I'll pass on your good wishes.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:33:38] <Evie> Oh lordy, I should know by now to wear black crepe when reading your books
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:33:51] <Shiral> Do!, Says the disembodied voice of Shiral.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:33:54] <Shiral> Bye
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:33:58] Quit Shiral has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:34:20] <AnnieUK> have a box of tissues ready, Evie
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:34:56] <DesertRose> Yup. Especially for the era right around and following the death of Cinhil. It seems like EVERYBODY dies then.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:35:00] <Evie> Of course Zoe must die; she's not eligible for the priesthood.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:35:07] <Evie> It's the Evie curse
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:35:19] <jemler> well, folks. i gotta get up early. so i'm taking off too. until next week
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:35:24] <DesertRose> Okay, night, jemler.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:35:27] <the_Bee> or she could marry a foreigner and more far away.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:35:35] <the_Bee> move
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:35:44] <KK> Of course, Zoe & co. merely need to have moved on by the beginning of DR, so that's a good bit of time. A lot can happen.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:35:47] <Evie> bye jemler
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:35:57] <BalanceTheEnergies> Sometimes reading those early trilogies is like watching 9/11 footage: you know it'll end badly, but you cannot look away.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:36:03] <jemler> KK, i hope your mom is ok.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:36:12] <KK> I need to check out too. Lots still to do this evening.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:36:24] <the_Bee> give our best to your mom.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:36:26] <Evie> Yes. It's a big kingdom. They moved. That's what I'm going with. If the answer is no, then lalalala can't hear you. ;-)
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:36:31] <DesertRose> Yeah. I *like* the early trilogies, because of the cool magic and Dom Queron.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:36:39] <DesertRose> But they are sad, without a doubt.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:36:39] <KK> That's one of the things I need to do: call her and check on progress. It's about hospital dinner time now.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:36:55] <Evie> Good time then
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:36:55] <the_Bee> nighters, KK
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:36:59] <DesertRose> Okay, be well, KK, and give my best wishes for a speedy recovery to your mom.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:37:01] <Evie> Good night!
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:37:09] <jemler> night all
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:37:10] <AnnieUK> night KK, thanks for dropping in
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:37:14] Quit jemler has left this server (Quit: ).
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:37:16] <BalanceTheEnergies> Good night KK. Best wishes to you and yours.
[Sunday 18 July 2010] [20:37:25] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.

"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
