KK Chat -- 10 Oct 2010
« on: October 10, 2010, 07:02:49 pm »

[19:02] --> KK has joined this channel (~kkurtz@OWIRCN-b7b1e86b.va.comcast.net).
[19:02] <jemler> KK!
[19:02] <Evie> yay!
[19:02] <DesertRose> Oh hi, KK!
[19:02] * Evie cheers
[19:02] <DesertRose> And of course, I have to go eat supper.
[19:02] *** You are now known as DR_supper.
[19:02] <jemler> eat fast
[19:03] <DR_supper> Yup
[19:03] <KK> Hi, gang.
[19:03] <Evie> Do we have new movie news, KK?
[19:03] * Evie sits on edge of chair waiting for news
[19:03] <KK> Not yet, but I did meet our screenwriter last Sunday--which is why I wasn't here.
[19:03] <jemler> Let her catch her breath first,
[19:04] * Evie passes the tray of scones and tea to KK while she catches her breath
[19:04] <KK> It's going out to a number of directors now, in hopes of firing the imaginationof one or more of them, so that we can get this show on the road.
[19:04] <jemler> i recommended Simon Baker for Morgan.
[19:04] <Sarah> back
[19:04] <Sarah> with orange tea and chocolate
[19:04] <Sarah> hi kk
[19:05] <KK> Hi0ho.
[19:05] <KK> I think Simon Baker is a bit too old--besides, an Aussie accent for Morgan?
[19:05] <Evie> Did you get to see the script in progress?
[19:05] <KK> I've seen al the versions along the way.
[19:05] <jemler> he uses an american accent in the mentalist
[19:06] <KK> With the occasional slip.
[19:06] <jemler> pobodies nerfect :)
[19:06] <Sarah> :)
[19:06] <KK> It's particularly jarring when he says, "Stay tuned for scenes from our next episode."
[19:07] <Evie> :-D
[19:07] <Evie> Though I wouldn't mind hearing Morgan say that for a Deryni miniseries covering all the books. ;-)
[19:07] <KK> I could put up with Aussie in that case.  :-)
[19:08] <Evie> Do you have anyone in mind you think would make a good Morgan or Duncan, or is the jury still out on that?
[19:09] <KK> Still out.  It will all depend on who's available when they finally start casting, and who the director wants.
[19:09] <jemler> is this movie going to be DR or the entire series?
[19:09] <KK> DR, for the first one.
[19:10] <Evie> and then once it's a blockbuster, they can make the next two.  ;-)
[19:11] <KK> BTW, while I'm thinking of it, two weeks from now I'll be at MileHighCon in Denver, so obviouolsy won't be here.
[19:11] <jemler> Plan ahead. It'll be a blockbuster if I have to buy the theatre!
[19:11] <Evie> and if Jason Isaacs is cast as Wencit, I will still resist the urge to root for the bad guys. :-D
[19:11] --> Shiral has joined this channel (Mibbit@504018.A7BCBA.B14B10.7ECE3F).
[19:11] <Evie> speaking of cons, did you get my email?
[19:11] <jemler> Shiral!
[19:11] <Shiral> Hi all
[19:11] <Evie> Hi Shiral!
[19:11] <KK> Yes, and forgot to respond.
[19:11] <Evie> LOL
[19:13] <Evie> Orig. was sent on 9/26, if you decide to go back and look for it
[19:13] <Evie> how is the writing going?
[19:13] <jemler> Can't get Wencit in Deryni Rising. He didn't show up until HD
[19:14] <Sarah> hey shiral!
[19:14] <Evie> Yes, jemler.  That's why DR needs to be a blockbuster, so we can get HD in film.  :-D
[19:14] <Shiral> Hi Sarah
[19:14] <KK> Writing is going fine.
[19:14] <Shiral> Movie news???
[19:14] <Shiral> As in, did I miss any?
[19:14] <KK> Nothing definite yet.  They're sending out the script to prospective directors.
[19:15] <Shiral> Boy, they really drag this out!
[19:15] <KK> They're contemplating spending a boatload of cash, so they have to go slowly.
[19:15] <Shiral> Well, Wencit DOES show up in the new prelude to Deryni Checkmate
[19:16] <jemler> he does?
[19:16] <Shiral> I suppose so.But good about the "boatload of cash."
[19:16] <Shiral> Yup, in the author's cut edition, Wencit shows up
[19:16] <Shiral> In the prologue. Brain fart,couldn't remember the right word so I said prelude which I knew wasn't quite right
[19:18] --> the_Bee has joined this channel (the_Bee@OWIRCN-ef960935.ma.comcast.net).
[19:18] <Evie> Someone opened a door, and now I have a lap full of cat again
[19:18] <Evie> Hi Bee
[19:18] <jemler> hi bee
[19:18] <the_Bee> HI eVIE AND JEMLER
[19:18] <the_Bee> which cat, Evie?
[19:19] <Evie> Luke
[19:19] <Evie> but Gigi is nearby
[19:19] <Evie> trying to decide if she  wants up here too
[19:19] <Sarah> hi bee
[19:19] <Shiral> Hi Bee
[19:19] <the_Bee> Is your lap big enough?
[19:19] <Evie> Annie lost her fur baby last night. :-(
[19:19] <jemler> what happened?
[19:19] <Evie> No, it's covered by a lap desk
[19:19] <the_Bee> :( What happened?
[19:20] <Shiral> Awww.:(
[19:20] <Evie> I think she said it was a blood clot that paralized her hindquarters
[19:20] <the_Bee> Did they have to put it down?
[19:20] <Evie> Yes, yesterday morning
[19:21] <Sarah> aw...
[19:21] <jemler> we had a dog that had something like that. she's be fine and then go onto convulsions.
[19:22] <Evie> Luke purrs in your general direction
[19:22] <jemler> Use the Force, Luke!
[19:22] <Evie> That's who he's named for.
[19:23] <jemler> only his name is Luke Laptaker
[19:23] <Evie> Because my Luke is a big whiny baby too
[19:23] <Sarah> aw
[19:24] <Shiral> If  Francesca is in my lap, Dmitri insists on getting up there, too
[19:24] <KK> Sad loss.  It's always sad when it happens, even if one was anticipating the inevitable.
[19:24] <Evie> "But Uncle Owen!  I wanted to go to Tosche Station to pick  up some 9 Lives!"
[19:24] <jemler> Nooo!! Meow Mix!
[19:25] <Kelric> meow meow meow meow
[19:25] <jemler> what have i done....
[19:25] <Evie> :-D
[19:25] <Kelric> meow meow meow meow
[19:25] <Kelric> meow meow meow meow\
[19:25] <Kelric> meow meow meow meow
[19:25] <Shiral> I got the Meow Mix jingle stuck in my head a few days ago, couldn't remember what it was, but it was a very annoying and persistent ear worm
[19:26] <Evie> This conversation has gone to the do--cats
[19:26] <Kelric> now I have that darn jingle in the head
[19:26] <Shiral> Do cats, is that anything like Doo-wop?
[19:26] <jemler> this chat channel in talking in cat now
[19:26] <Evie> It's a cat channel
[19:26] <Sarah> mrow/
[19:26] <Sarah> ?
[19:26] <Evie> So, what's happening in the novel now, KK?
[19:26] <jemler> see you next week, same cat time, same cat channel;
[19:27] <Shiral> Bye, Jemler
[19:27] <jemler> i'm not going anywhere. remember Batman
[19:27] <Sarah> bye jem
[19:27] <Shiral> Oh
[19:27] <Sarah> ?
[19:27] <jemler> not you Sarah, you're too young
[19:27] <Shiral> You had me fooled, and for that, you get a trout whap
[19:28] <the_Bee> 1960s tv show.
[19:28] *** You are now known as DesertRose.
[19:28] <DesertRose> Okay, back from supper.
[19:28] * Evie hands Shiral a trout to trout-whap jemler
[19:28] <jemler> Remember when Batman was over.    they said "Same bat time"?
[19:28] * Shiral tickles Jemler wtith the trough
[19:28] <KK> Brion & co. are pumping a border baron for info re Aude's death, and what Caitrin is up to.  This is just before we jump back to Culdi,where Alaric is in the process of breaking his arm.
[19:28] <Shiral> Trout, jeez, rented fingers!
[19:29] <Evie> Poor Alaric!
[19:29] <jemler> i only need to rent one finger. ;)
[19:29] <Shiral> I just had this silly mental image of Alaric thinking  "No that didn't work, gotta find a new way to break my arm.....Maybe, fall out of a tree or something.."
[19:30] <Evie> My grandmother, as a young girl, broke her arm by trying to fly. She had tied hay to her arms to make wings and she jumped out of a barn loft.
[19:30] <KK> LOL, that champter is written; just have to link to it, after I get Brion & co. off hunting for Caitrin in the wilds of Meara.
[19:31] <Shiral> Ah, good.
[19:31] <Evie> Alaric at least would have the good sense not to try to fly from the top of Coroth Castle. ;-)
[19:31] <Shiral> But soon it will be bye-bye Kenneth.... :(
[19:31] <Evie> Noooo!!!!
[19:32] * Sarah sips orange tea. Yurm.
[19:32] <jemler> one day my aunt was standing on her front porch holding a broom, and i asked if she was going somewhere!
[19:32] <DesertRose> jemler!
[19:32] <Sarah> lol
[19:32] <Evie> My dad used to do that when I'd walk by with a broom
[19:32] <the_Bee> How'd she respond?
[19:32] <Shiral> I imagine that Vera and  Jared earned a lot of gray hairs looking after Alaric
[19:32] <jemler> with a dirty look
[19:33] --> kirienne has joined this channel (Mibbit@OWIRCN-7a902e36.scrm01.sbcglobal.net).
[19:33] <Shiral> Doubt he was the kind of kid who didn't do things because they were dangerous
[19:33] <DesertRose> Hi kirienne.
[19:33] <the_Bee> hi kiriene
[19:33] <Shiral> Hi Kirienne
[19:33] <jemler> Kirienne! Long time
[19:33] <KK> Alaric gets distracted while trying to entice a squirrel to come closer on the branch of the tree where they're both perched.
[19:33] <kirienne> Hi Everyone :-)
[19:33] <Shiral> Ohoh!!
[19:33] <Evie> DH and DD are exchanging Dr Who trivia and have decided that DD has earned her gold geek card, but DH is on a platinum geek card with bling.
[19:33] <Shiral> So THAT's How it happened
[19:33] <Evie> Hi, kirienne!
[19:33] <DesertRose> LOL
[19:33] <kirienne> I haven't been home on Sundays for awhile
[19:35] <Evie> BTW, KK, when does Duncan discover he has healing powers?  I didn't see a mention in the first Deryni trilogy, but he's clearly discovered them by the second set.  Do you know?
[19:36] <jemler> he helped Morgan after the duel in DR
[19:36] <Evie> helped heal, or just lent energy?
[19:36] *** bynw is now known as bynw-taxi-for-teenager.
[19:37] <KK> I think he probably helps Alaric but isn't quite sure he did until later.
[19:37] <Evie> Ah
[19:37] <KK> Bynw, did you acquire a teenager with your new marriage?
[19:37] <jemler> i don't remember any healing except in HD, with the exception of Warin de Gray
[19:37] <DesertRose> I think he did.  I think he now has a 14-year-old (or so) stepson.
[19:39] <Shiral> Marriage special: This week one free teenager with each I do
[19:39] <DesertRose> LOL
[19:39] <kirienne> LOL
[19:39] <DesertRose> Nobody'd ever get married if that were the deal.
[19:40] <Evie> I spent last Sunday before chat spending a boatload on a new outfit so my DS would have something nice to wear to his school dance.  Only to have him skip it because he wasn't feeling well that day.  :-(
[19:40] <bynw-taxi-for-teenager> KK, yes I did acquire a 14 year old in the package
[19:40] <Shiral> True, but it's a way to make sure your intended is serious
[19:40] <Evie> LOL Shiral
[19:40] <Shiral> The free kittens thing wasn't working out so well
[19:41] <Evie> I got a two for one deal with my marriage.  Nice RL husband and handsome squire in shining armor.  One of the benefits  of the SCA. ;-)
[19:41] <DesertRose> LOL
[19:42] <Evie> I laugh out loud every time I read the scene with Richenda helping Alaric out of his mail so they can go to bed. 
[19:42] <bynw-taxi-for-teenager> and i still have my sweet baby leopards too .... they are so soft
[19:42] <KK> Ah, yes. 
[19:42] <kirienne> I love that scene
[19:42] <DesertRose> Kittehs are fun.
[19:42] <Shiral> So inconvenient to be in the throes of passion when wearing armor!
[19:42] <DesertRose> The furball my daughter brought home is growing but is very sweet and playful.
[19:42] <Evie> "Come let me peel the metal off you, dear."
[19:42] <Shiral> "Don't you be wearing your spurs to bed again! You'll rip the good sheets!"
[19:43] <DesertRose> LOL, yeah.
[19:43] <jemler> but having someone who can polish armor is good for the car too. he really knoes how to buff bumpers! :)
[19:43] <kirienne> LOL
[19:43] <DesertRose> That's the squire's job. :)
[19:44] <Shiral> Dmitri's favorite toy is a wine cork. Wine cork hockey at three am in the bathroom is a GREAT way to wake up mom!
[19:44] <Evie> LOL
[19:44] <Shiral> I often found he's "put it to bed"
[19:44] <Evie> Luke is back, trying to emulate the sleeping lion of Cassan
[19:45] <Shiral>  in one of my shoes by morning
[19:45] <DesertRose> Oh, I bet that's a fun discovery.
[19:45] <Evie> corks go in shoes, don't you know
[19:45] <Shiral> It's rather sweet, that way he can always remember where he put his toys, right? =o) Such a tidy little cat!
[19:45] <DesertRose> All kinds of things go in shoes according to cats.
[19:46] <Shiral> Actually, he's not so little anymore. He's about doubled in size since I brought him home
[19:46] <DesertRose> Shoelaces are for batting around and playing with, as are bodice lacings, at least according to PJ.
[19:46] <Shiral> If it dangles, it needs swatting according to Dmitri
[19:46] <Evie> Gigi has a plaintive little mew she makes whenever she's walking around with her fur "weasel".
[19:46] <DesertRose> Yeah, that's pretty much PJ's rule too.
[19:47] <Evie> If she had kittens, I'd think it's a call to dinner, but as the fur weasel looks like her missing tail, it comes across as plaintive begging to reattach it
[19:47] <Shiral> It's a plus when Mama suddenly roars "AIGH! STOP THAT YOU LITTLE FIEND!"
[19:47] <the_Bee> How'd she lose it?
[19:47] <Evie> She was born with a bobtail
[19:47] <the_Bee> ah.
[19:48] <Evie> Vet checked her when she was adopted, but apparently she was born that way
[19:49] <KK> Was Gigi born without tail, or was that a later loss?
[19:49] <KK> Would it have been bushy, if she'd had one?
[19:49] <jemler> maybe you should have called her Goldthwaite
[19:49] <the_Bee> ?
[19:49] <Kelric> wasn't here last week.  how goes the movie planning?
[19:49] <jemler> bobbed cat goldthwaite
[19:49] <DesertRose> How are your kitties, KK?
[19:50] <the_Bee> which book or movie, Jemler?
[19:50] <jemler> what do you mean bee?
[19:51] <KK> My kitties are fine.  Sasha is learning to sit up for treats.
[19:51] <the_Bee> is Goldthwaite from
[19:51] <DesertRose> LOL
[19:51] <kirienne> how cute KK
[19:51] <DesertRose> He's a very annoying (IMO) actor.
[19:51] <jemler> bobcat goldthwaite, the comdeian
[19:51] * jemler heads back to the punitentiary
[19:51] <Evie> She seems to have been born without it, KK.  She was a shelter adoption, but the vet checked her bobtail and said it didn't look like she'd had an accident. What's left looks  like it might have been slightly bushy, but it's  hard to say.
[19:51] <the_Bee> OH! Never seen him.  I thought you meant a cat in a story.
[19:51] <Sarah> ok guys, time for me to go and to find the icy-hot. toodles til later one
[19:51] <Sarah> on*
[19:52] <DesertRose> Later, Sarah.
[19:52] <KK> Is her fur sheek or bushy?
[19:52] <jemler> nite sarah
[19:52] <the_Bee> seeya Sarah.
[19:52] <Evie> Sleek
[19:52] <Sarah> later everyone
[19:52] <-- Sarah has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[19:52] <Evie> see you, Sarah
[19:52] <Shiral> Bye Sarah
[19:53] <Evie> http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/gallery/684_07_09_10_8_01_19.JPG
[19:53] <KK> I had a black short-haired cat when I was a kid, and he had to have his tail amputated.  When he'd bush what was left, it looked like he'd sat on a black powderpuff.
[19:53] <Evie> That's Gigi
[19:53] <DesertRose> Bottle brush tail. :)
[19:53] <DesertRose> Why does Gigi have a Christmas bow on her head?
[19:53] <jemler> kitty cotton tail
[19:54] <Evie> When she gets excited, her tail whirls like a helicopter blade
[19:54] <Evie> This was her first Christmas
[19:54] <DesertRose> Ah, okay.
[19:54] <Evie> she was adopted the Sunday before
[19:54] <DesertRose> I'm amazed she put up with it.  PJ probably would but she's an uncommonly tolerant cat.
[19:54] <Evie> Oh, both of mine are very tolerant. 
[19:55] <Evie> Gigi has put up with a fur stole and a doggie dress
[19:55] <DesertRose> PJ is part dog, we think.  She follows my daughter and my stepdad around.
[19:55] <Evie> and Luke used to walk around with a butler collar and bow tie
[19:55] <DesertRose> LOL
[19:56] <kirienne> I have a friend whose children, when they were very small, used to dress their cat up in baby clothes, and he put up with it, but would have a pouty look on his face
[19:56] <Evie> Gigi's dress was pink with zebra stripes and the word "Fierce" on the back. But she''s outgrown it now.
[19:56] <DesertRose> It's funny how expressive cat faces can be.
[19:56] <Shiral> Well folks, I have to kick off my glass slipper and depart
[19:56] <DesertRose> Okay, Shiral.  See you later.
[19:56] <Evie> Bye!
[19:56] <jemler> we'll find you again Cinderella
[19:56] <kirienne> are you at work Shrial?
[19:56] <the_Bee> see you later, Shiral
[19:56] <jemler> nite shiral
[19:57] * Shiral steps onto her portal, waves goodbye, and disappears in a cloud of   tabby fur
[19:57] <kirienne> night night Shiral
[19:57] <Shiral> Yes, Contraband chatting for today
[19:57] <Evie> http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/gallery/684_07_09_10_8_01_00.jpg\
[19:57] * Shiral climbs into her pumpkin coach and drives off
[19:57] <Evie> Drat, that didn't work. That was meant to be Luke
[19:57] <DesertRose> If he's orange, it worked for me.
[19:57] <Shiral> Good writing, KK, I may be back next week, but don't know if it will work out
[19:58] <jemler> take the \ off at the end
[19:58] <KK> I need to head also.  There are these steaks--or snakes, as we call them in my household--that need broiling, and there are two hungry men waiting less and less patiently.
[19:58] <Shiral> Toodle-oo and thinking good  Deryni movie thoughts
[19:58] <Shiral> Bye!
[19:58] <Evie> http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/gallery/684_07_09_10_8_01_00.jpg
[19:58] <-- Shiral has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[19:58] <jemler> nite kk
[19:58] <Evie> Broiled snakes, yum
[19:58] <jemler> bon appetit
[19:58] <DesertRose> Okay, night, KK.  Thanks for dropping in.
[19:58] <KK> Hopefully, will be back next week.
[19:58] <DesertRose> We'll be here. :)
[19:58] <kirienne> yum steaks :-) I would be impatient too, LOL
[19:58] <Evie> Good!
[19:58] <Evie> See you then
[19:58] <the_Bee> have a goodweek, KK
[19:58] <kirienne> night night KK

"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.)
