KK Chat -- 24 July 2011
« on: July 24, 2011, 07:32:22 pm »
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:07] Join KK has joined this channel.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:08] <jemler> no, it's Japanese for Big Girl (More She, get it!)_
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:09] <DesertRose> So he's done growing.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:10] <jemler> hi KK
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:12] <Shiral> Hello KK
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:12] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:16] <KK> Hello, folks.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:20] <BalanceTheEnergies> Hello KK
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:23] <Shiral> I'm not at all sure he IS, DR. =o)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:28] <DesertRose> Oh jeez.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:45] <DesertRose> KK, we were talking about cats, Shiral's Dmitri, specifically.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:48] <Shiral> He's already for more food
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:02:52] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:03:00] <bynw> hiyas KK
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:03:06] <Shiral> next sunday will be his first anniversary as my cat
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:03:09] <jemler> Well, cats have 9 lives to feed!~
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:03:14] <KK> Hasn't Dmitri grown yet?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:03:24] <KK> How old is he?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:03:25] <Shiral> Oh yes. He's huge, as a matter of fact
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:03:39] <Shiral> Just over a year old, as I got him when he was about 10 weeks old
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:03:48] <hygilac> back--Hi KK
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:03:50] <DesertRose> How are your fur kids, KK?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:03:53] <KK> Sounds like eating all the time, like my Sasha.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:04:04] <Shiral> Oh yeah
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:04:25] <Shiral> He even tried a bite of peach. He didn't like it, but he tried it
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:04:28] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:04:33] <KK> They're great. We had a big thunderstorm today, though, and Oswald HATES thunderstorms. He was under my desk, hiddled up against my leg, and shivering and panting....
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:04:40] <DesertRose> Tessa, that kittiot, would probably eat peaches.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:04:43] <Shiral> Poor Oswald
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:04:47] <DesertRose> Oh, poor Oswald.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:05:08] <KK> I was afraid he was going to have a heart attack. Does Not Like THunder.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:05:13] <Shiral> Both cats have been all over me like a pair of cheap suits ever since I got home from France
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:05:23] <KK> They missed you.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:05:29] <hygilac> My two head under a bed
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:05:43] <KK> Mine can't fit under the bed--but they try.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:05:54] <DesertRose> I wonder if you could get a tranquilizer from the vet for Oswald for thunderstorms.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:05:57] <jemler> maybe you should have brought that french cat, Pepe Le Pew, home.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:06:01] <Shiral> Yes, I did pick up that vibe. They were about 3/5ths "Hooray you're back!" and 2/5ths "Where have you BEEN??"
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:06:06] <KK> Cameron's Penelope was under his bed.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:06:15] <hygilac> I have an antique iron bed--lots of room to hide!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:06:29] <Shiral> And a built in lightning rod, too!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:06:35] <jemler> iron bed in a thunderstorm?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:06:54] <hygilac> they don't KOW it's iron!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:07:03] <KK> Oh, yeah. This storm seemed to be sitting over our house for nearly half an hour. BIG lightning and thunder.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:07:05] <hygilac> it's a bed they can both get under
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:07:46] <hygilac> how have you been KK?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:07:54] <KK> Power flickered twice, so I shut down the co9mputer and unplugged the power strip. Even with a surge suppressor, I wasn't going to risk it. Not when I'd just found the Lost Chapter.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:08:03] <DesertRose> Oh fun.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:08:06] <Shiral> Lost chapter???
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:08:15] * Shiral pricks up little ears
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:08:27] <hygilac> anything like the Lost Ark?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:08:30] <jemler> try being on an air mattress when the power goes out
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:08:32] <KK> It wasn't lost, just tacked onto the back end of a chapter that I didn't remember it being part of.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:08:47] <DesertRose> Just wasn't where you were looking for it to be?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:08:50] <Shiral> Ah, but always good to relocate large chunks of novel text
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:08:51] <BalanceTheEnergies> so only mislaid then
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:08:53] <KK> Does your mattress depend on power to stay inflated?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:08:57] <jemler> yes
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:09:07] <hygilac> I know that feeling--I have lost a lot of class notes that way
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:09:08] <Shiral> Definitely don't want your mother-board banjaxed in that case
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:09:12] <jemler> when it goes out it stays oiut until reset
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:09:43] <KK> Since it was about 20 pp, yes. and no printout to fall back on. It wasn't that far along yet. It's the one where Kenneth is going to die in the next one.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:09:50] <Shiral> I came home to a dead car battery
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:09:51] <DesertRose> :(
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:09:59] <Shiral> Wanted to turn right around and go back
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:10:13] <DesertRose> That sucks, Shiral.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:10:24] <hygilac> not fun
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:10:25] <DesertRose> I just had to deal with a dying car battery here recently myself.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:10:26] <Shiral> Well it did, but thank goodness for Triple A
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:10:32] <KK> Was it totally dead, or was it jumpable?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:10:39] <hygilac> my car has not yet caught up with me
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:10:39] <jemler> good thing your car had pedals!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:10:46] <Shiral> Deader than Kenneth!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:10:55] <Shiral> And Rhys and Brion and etc etc
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:10:55] <hygilac> It is still in Cincinnati
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:11:00] <KK> As in, had to get a new one?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:11:03] <Shiral> Yup
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:11:15] <KK> Did that earlier this year myself.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:11:28] <Shiral> Then I got home to my apartment and had no power, so had to go through a few PG&E phone trees to get a techie sent out
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:11:31] <KK> hygilac, why is your car in Cincinnati?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:11:53] <hygilac> I had one that died while the car was buried in snow after a blizzard
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:12:12] <KK> Not this time, I trust. Fried, maybe.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:12:53] <hygilac> I have moved to Ohio, KK. My niece and her husband drove it to their house but have not yet made it to Wooster--between Columbus and Cleveland
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:13:11] <KK> Ah. YOu've retired, haven't you?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:13:38] <hygilac> I have indeed.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:13:48] <KK> Enjoying it, I hope?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:14:02] <hygilac> still unpacking
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:14:07] <hygilac> but yes
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:14:24] <DesertRose> KK, Evie left me with a bunch of questions for you.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:14:31] <KK> My half-sister lives in Cincinnati.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:14:40] <KK> Fire away, DR.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:14:46] <jemler> where does the other half live?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:14:47] <DesertRose> [18:47] <Evie> From what I recall off the top of my head, the Servants of Saint Camber started off as a religious order after Camber's death, but they were eventually forced to "go underground" and hide in isolation, creating their hidden village of St. Kyriell's.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:15:00] <DesertRose> [18:47] <Evie> I am guessing that at this point, they dispensed with the vow of celibacy in order for the small community of refugees to survive.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:15:12] <DesertRose> [18:48] <Evie> Is that the case, or were there originally two circles of Servants--a religious order that was celibate and died out after the first generation, and an associated group of laity who were associated with them but were not bound by holy vows?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:15:24] <DesertRose> 18:48] <Evie> Or were they a non-celibate (though presumably chaste) community from the start, despite being similar to other religious orders in every other sense? I am assuming they allow marriage, since they haven't died out yet in 200 years of isolation!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:15:33] <DesertRose> That's the most complicated one. :D
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:15:39] <KK> They were always a lay order with occasional clergy members, so there was no vow of celibacy.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:15:45] <DesertRose> Okay.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:16:00] <jemler> i was going to say the answer was 42
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:16:07] <Shiral> Self-perpetuating Camberians
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:16:27] <DesertRose> [18:49] <Evie> Would the Servants of St. Camber accept new members into their Order once they are out of hiding and established at the Schola? How does one properly address the Servants...as "Brother" and "Sister"?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:16:42] <DesertRose> [18:49] <Evie> Would the teachers at the new Schola go by "Dom" (or "Domine/Domina"), or "Magister/Magistra"? Or would there be some more appropriate form of address?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:16:46] <KK> Yes, and yes.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:17:32] <hygilac> that last one is multiple choice, not general
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:17:34] <KK> Probably the 3rd option, maybe 2nd. Haven't decided yet.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:18:17] <DesertRose> [18:49] <Evie> Might some of the Servants have inherited Healing Powers, and if so, have they managed to maintain the old traditions well enough to keep the Healing training alive, even if it's been reduced to a Master/apprentice sort of teaching?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:18:51] <KK> Probably not, since Camber was not a Healer.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:19:12] <DesertRose> [18:50] <Evie> No wife or children are mentioned for Saer de Traherne as of 1130 in the codex. Surely he'd have married by now in order to secure his Earldom? Or is he still looking, or not in a hurry to wed, like Derry?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:19:33] <hygilac> weren't he healing talents always sort of a master/apprentice situation? the talent surfaced but then training ensued
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:19:33] <KK> That training still exists in Torenth, though.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:19:35] <BalanceTheEnergies> Or Morgan?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:19:38] <jemler> but Queron was, and he was the founder of the order.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:19:46] <KK> But he was celibate.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:20:07] <jemler> but he could teach
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:20:08] <Shiral> On a slightly different tack, would Healer Students at St Neot's have had some formal sort of examination at the end of their studies with the Gabrilites to demonstrate their readiness "go professional" so to speak?"
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:20:12] <KK> Saer probably has a wife and family that we just haven't seen.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:20:43] <KK> Probably, though it might be more of an ongoing assessment.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:20:49] <DesertRose> And the last one from Evie...[18:52] <Evie> OH! One more....the Codex mentions that the Servants wear cinctures of "blue and red knotted cords." Is there a particular pattern or way that these cords are knotted (I.e., is it cording lore?), or can I just take two cords sold as priest's cinctures online and knot them together for my costume?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:21:31] <Shiral> Deryni Macrame, maybe?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:21:34] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:22:08] <jemler> since some of the Servants were Human, cording lore would be lost on them, wouldn't it?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:22:18] <KK> It was probably cording lore, given that Queron, a Gabrilite, had an oddly braided braid. Maybe a simple macrame-sort of braiding for a costume?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:22:56] <DesertRose> She's working on making herself a set of SSC robes, so that's why that question.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:23:09] <DesertRose> She asks interesting questions.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:23:15] <KK> OTOH, could put 2 cinctures together and just do the 3 Franciscan knots, treating the 2 as 1 strand.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:23:17] <jemler> Dhugals braid was the same as Querons
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:23:31] <KK> No.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:23:41] <KK> Sometimes a braid is just a braid.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:24:06] <DesertRose> Queron's was special, because he had to go to special lengths to destroy it when he had to cut it to save his own life.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:24:09] <hygilac> Wasn't Queron's a 4 strand braid?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:24:17] <KK> Yes.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:24:19] <DesertRose> I believe so, which is a pain to do.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:24:47] <jemler> Queron called his braid a g'dhula, just Jilian in St. Kyriells called Dhugals braid.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:24:48] <KK> And there would have been spells woven into it. Nost just your comon garden variety 4-strand braid.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:25:17] <hygilac> hair would be one of the best conductors for scrying
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:25:19] <KK> The knowledge of the spells could have been lost by then.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:25:20] <BalanceTheEnergies> Speaking of Dhugal, he had a golden aura at his accolade (when Duncan turned on his silver one), but his handfire is silver later in the same book. Did he choose the gold to contrast with his father and out himself? And can Deryni choose their colours?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:25:29] <Shiral> Just as well Hubert wasn't wise to Deryni spells being woven into Gabrilite braids
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:25:42] <KK> Oh, yeah.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:25:54] <KK> They can choose colors if they want.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:26:26] <Shiral> He'd have had the entire Gabrilite order shaved as bald as eggs
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:26:33] <KK> Aura and handfire are not necessarily the same color, unless they choose so.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:26:56] <KK> Yep. If he'd known.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:26:57] <hygilac> He did worse--he had them slaughtered
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:27:00] <jemler> instead, Hubert had them exterminated
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:27:04] <BalanceTheEnergies> I wondered about that. Kelson's is always red, and Morgans is often green.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:27:20] <Shiral> Well yes he did. Which achieved the same end
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:27:24] Quit derynifanatic64 has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:27:34] <DesertRose> Damn Mibbit.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:27:55] <DesertRose> KK, thanks for answering all those questions.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:27:56] <Shiral> And Arilan's is usually violet
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:27:57] <jemler> KK did you read the article in the last Time about fanfiction?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:28:00] <KK> Mibbit's getting as bad as Peer.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:28:07] <DesertRose> Seriously.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:28:08] <KK> No.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:28:25] <Shiral> Wonder what color Aura Araxie will chose...
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:28:50] <hygilac> pink with golden sparkles?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:28:57] <KK> I Think Not.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:29:06] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:29:10] <hygilac> heh--just kidding
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:29:14] <Shiral> Only if she wants to look like a firework!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:29:55] <jemler> http://www.time.com/time/arts/article/0,8599,2081784-1,00.html
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:30:05] <Shiral> Distracting, if one is in the middle of High Ritual Magic
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:30:26] <jemler> maybe hers will be Day-Glo Pink! :)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:30:45] <Shiral> Surely she has better taste than THAT!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:31:11] <KK> She's a Haldane, so it might be red.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:31:13] <jemler> The lkink above it for Times article on fanfiction
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:31:16] <DesertRose> I used to have a purse that was Day-Glo pink. In the 80s.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:31:24] <KK> I'll read it, Jemler. Thanks.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:31:48] <hygilac> me too, jemler--thanks
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:32:55] <jemler> i didn't write it, i just read it!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:33:00] <Shiral> Saw Moissac Abbey in France, KK. I kept expecting Camber and Joram or at least a Michaeline or two to round the next corner. Alas, they didn't.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:33:20] <Shiral> Highly atmospheric surroundings. =o)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:33:22] <KK> Sounds neat, Shiral.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:33:36] <hygilac> I have a link for you too, KK
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:33:37] <jemler> You didn't even see an Anviler or a Knight Templar?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:33:41] <hygilac> http://www.amazon.com/True-Adventures-Snow-White-Overrated/dp/1456840738/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1311550381&sr=8-1
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:34:05] <Shiral> Alas, no, Jemler. But visiting the Cite in Carcassone was very, very neat
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:34:33] <DesertRose> I'm jealous that you got to go to France, Shiral, but I'm glad you had a good time. :D
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:34:54] <BalanceTheEnergies> KK the tropers at tvtropes.org are working on an index of Science Fiction and Fantasy Creators. It's an index of separate creator pages on that site, and you on't have one there (though there's a Deryni page). Would you have any objections to having one made for you so you can join that index?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:34:59] <hygilac> I kept expecting Duncan to emerge from the church inside the walls at Hohensalzburg, too
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:35:02] <Shiral> It was fantastic, DR. And it felt like the whole trip lasted about 48 hours
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:35:06] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:35:24] <KK> No objection.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:35:57] <BalanceTheEnergies> Cool! I hope the rest of you can help. I don't know enough about the other series, and i have to find another job ASAP.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:36:00] <KK> Ain't foreign travel great?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:36:09] <Shiral> It is! =o)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:36:15] <BalanceTheEnergies> Yes, i miss it.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:36:36] <Shiral> Although sadly, like all vacations, it had to end
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:36:40] <DesertRose> Yup.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:36:54] <Shiral> But I worked both my cameras HARD
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:36:59] <DesertRose> Awesome.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:37:15] <KK> Are you posting the pictures somewhere accessible to the rest of us?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:37:30] <DesertRose> Post a link in Off Topic, Shiral. :)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:37:31] <hygilac> I expect great drawings to be forthcoming!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:37:39] <Shiral> I still have to sort through them and do some deleting of less successful pics. but then I'll post them and then put the link on Rhemuth Castle
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:38:05] <KK> Let me know when you do. While I'm finishing the book, I haven't time to go to the site.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:38:24] <Shiral> Been trying to write about my trip, but thoughts are resisting organization. It's like having a head full of Caffienated Squirrels
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:38:43] <DesertRose> Aside the Lost Chapter, how's the book coming along, KK?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:38:44] <Shiral> I'll send you the link when I get them posted, KK
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:38:47] <BalanceTheEnergies> LOL
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:38:58] <DesertRose> LOL at the caffeinated squirrels.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:39:11] <Shiral> Obviously I gave them too much Cafe Au Laid
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:39:20] <Shiral> I mean LAIT, obviously
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:39:25] <DesertRose> BRB, need more tea.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:39:29] <Shiral> I don't want you all to think I'm a pervert, here
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:39:38] <jemler> and where is THAT place?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:39:48] <hygilac> your jet lag is catching up with your fingers
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:40:17] <Shiral> Or else I'm just using the excuse as Long as possible, so that people will give my lousy typing a pass
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:41:05] <hygilac> hey, they accept my lousy typing. or if not, I just ignore them
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:41:09] <jemler> Cafe Au Laid, and the corner of Easy Street and Bordello Avenue?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:41:32] * Shiral swats Jemler with a Croissant
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:41:35] <BalanceTheEnergies> <groan>
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:41:49] <jemler> What, no butter?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:42:00] <hygilac> please, children--mom is in the room
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:42:27] <Shiral> You ever see Croissants made, Jemler? The dough has so much butter in it, that adding more is positively decadent
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:42:48] * Shiral spit shines her halo
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:42:57] <Shiral> Who me, misbehave???
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:43:01] <jemler> and if you don't more it's in-decadent (or is that indecent?)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:43:08] <hygilac> they served us chocolate butter for breakfast and dinner in Hershey
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:43:32] <DesertRose> Chocolate butter?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:43:42] <Shiral> The hard part now is getting back into a more austere mode of eating
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:43:44] <BalanceTheEnergies> might be nice witha raspberry jam
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:43:49] <KK> Sounds decadent, indeed. Dark or milk?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:43:51] <hygilac> a lot like Nutella, but more chocolate
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:44:00] <hygilac> dark
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:44:11] <KK> Yum! Nutella is good, too.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:44:19] <Shiral> Oh man,you HAD to mention Nutella! I can't keep it in my house or I'll eat it with a spoon.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:44:28] <jemler> can you make bread that tastes like graham crackers?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:44:34] <hygilac> yes, one of my favorite discoveries in Germany years ago
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:44:47] <KK> Why not just eat graham crackers?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:44:56] <Shiral> Chocolate and hazelnuts---a marriage made in heaven
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:45:06] <KK> Smen.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:45:08] <BalanceTheEnergies> I second that Shiral.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:45:10] <DesertRose> Goes together like cinnamon and apples.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:45:11] <KK> Amen, too.

[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:45:22] <hygilac> hi evie!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:45:24] <Shiral> Hi Evie
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:45:27] <DesertRose> I already pinged KK with your questions. :D
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:45:28] <KK> Hi, Evie.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:45:32] <BalanceTheEnergies> Hello again Evie.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:45:41] <Evie> Hi. Reading on phone
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:45:52] <jemler> Peanut Butter and Company in New York makes a Chocolate Peanut Butter. You can buy it online. buy that, marshmallow cream and graham bread and makea s'more sandwich!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:45:53] <Shiral> Eating with one hand and typing with the other, Evie? =o)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:46:20] <Evie> Shiral: sort of
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:46:47] <Shiral> There was one very fancy restaurant where we ate that gave us a dessert that was small samplings of about eight different desserts. It was an example of how one might be killed by kindness

[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:47:07] <Evie> Sitting on covered patio avoiding rain
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:47:17] <Shiral> It was tough, but I did my best to honor them
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:47:28] <Shiral> Just don't feed your phone mashed potatoes
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:47:28] <KK> One must do one's best.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:47:51] <BalanceTheEnergies> 'Tis only polite.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:48:01] <DesertRose> Ooh, mashed potatoes. I haven't had that in a while.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:48:09] <Shiral> Oh yes. Fortunately, no one thing was very large, but it arrived after about a 5 course dinner. We waddled out, groaning
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:48:11] <Evie> Poor Shiral, forced to eat desserts
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:48:21] <DesertRose> LOL, yeah.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:48:21] <KK> Yes, it would be churlish not to eat what's offered in such a place.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:48:27] <Shiral> Oh, I'm scarred for life, Evie. =o)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:49:21] <Evie> I'll endure the pain for you next time, Shiral
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:49:42] <Shiral> Thanks, I appreciate the gesture Evie. =o)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:49:53] <KK> What are true friends for?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:49:54] <hygilac> Everyone in Hershey kept bombarding us with various forms of chocolate decadence
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:50:02] <Shiral> I felt as if I'd attended Court in Rhemuth on a major feast day
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:50:11] <KK> Or Hogwarts.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:50:18] <DesertRose> The one place in the world where you could get sick of chocolate, eh, hygilac?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:50:19] <Shiral> That too!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:50:43] <DesertRose> Or maybe Beauxbatons?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:50:51] <DesertRose> Since Shiral was in France?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:51:08] <Shiral> Yes, I'd say it was like being at Beauxbatons. Fortunately without Fleur De La Couer
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:51:13] <hygilac> I don't know if I could EVER get sick OF chocolate--though it's definitely a place one could get sick FROM it!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:51:20] <DesertRose> She didn't turn out to be so bad, in the end.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:51:28] <Shiral> Vraiment, non
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:51:29] <Evie> I got my linen in for my veil and wimple
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:51:47] <jemler> Chocolate. One of the Five Food Groups.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:51:55] <Shiral> Mental Health food
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:52:04] <KK> Great, Evie.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:52:13] <hygilac> emotional health food, certainly
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:52:18] <Evie> Shiral, are you posting France pics?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:52:22] <Shiral> Maybe Cinhil would have been a more cheerful man if he could have had a bite of chocolate now and then
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:52:34] <KK> Maybe.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:52:34] <jemler> Don't squeeze the Charmin in yoyu Wimple. (See who gets it)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:52:50] <hygilac> <groan>
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:52:53] <Shiral> I WILL be Evie. But I haven't done so yet
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:53:09] <Shiral> Lots of pictures needing lots of organization
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:53:09] <jemler> you got it, hygilac?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:53:15] <Evie> Ordering gray linen for robes and hood on payday
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:53:35] * Evie hits jemler
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:53:53] <hygilac> yes, emler, I got it
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:54:08] <DesertRose> BRB again.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:54:16] <jemler> Evie got it too, and gave it to me! :)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:54:20] <Shiral> I'm pleased with most of them, but there are a few duds in the lot. I don't know how it happened but I took some crazy shots of this black and white tiled floor in the Chateau of Chenonceau
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:54:26] <hygilac> but the groan was more for the fact I have to go be virtuous and walk off a bit of the chocolate
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:54:48] <Evie> Seeing double rainbow
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:54:56] * Shiral is fighting off the urge to go galloping off in search of Nutella
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:55:27] <hygilac> I hope to see you all again next week
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:55:27] <bynw> really never cared for nutella myself
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:55:45] <Shiral> Well I knew you were weird, Bynw!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:55:46] <hygilac> take care--and have some chocolate!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:55:48] <Shiral> =o)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:56:03] <KK> Nutella on fresh croissants. Nice.

[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:57:34] <Shiral> So KK, is Kenneth dead?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:57:59] <KK> Not yet, but I've refound the means whereby to make him so.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:58:22] <KK> By next week, he'll be gone.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:58:33] <jemler> i couldn't believe it when i came in tonight.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:58:34] * bynw would like to see at least 1 good character in the deryni universe die of ... old age
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:58:38] <Shiral> Poor Kenneth. ANd poor Alaric and Bronwyn
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:58:45] <Evie> Noooooooo!!!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:58:45] <KK> Some of them do.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:58:59] <Shiral> Vivienne did
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:59:12] <KK> Duke Andrew did.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:59:28] <Shiral> King Donal did... after a fashion
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:59:36] <KK> Yep.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [19:59:57] <KK> The Earl of Carthane did, just today.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:00:25] <Shiral> Hmmmm, but was he a Good Earl, or a Bad Earl?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:00:43] <jemler> KK, a question about the next Codex.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:00:58] <KK> An ok earl. We didn't see him long enough to get to know him. Sons will be a different story.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:01:03] <KK> Yes, Jemler.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:01:55] <KK> Earls, we see them long enough to know them.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:02:03] <jemler> You said the next one might be an e-book. Can you place a waiver in it to allow cor corrections?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:02:18] <Evie> If Gwynedd needs a source of perpetual energy, just exhume Vivienne, rebury her at the School, and tell her they train half breeds there.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:02:22] <jemler> for corrections
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:02:40] <KK> Don't know. Probably not, but I'm only guessing.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:02:55] <Evie> She'll spin in her grave do centuries
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:03:09] <Shiral> And parade a few of Kelson and Araxie's children around in her sight if she looks like she's slowing down at all
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:03:11] <Evie> *for
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:03:19] <jemler> I have a program that converts from one format to another. it would allow me to correct mispellings, and other errata
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:03:37] <Evie> Lol
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:03:46] <Shiral> KK, would a prince of Bremagne be considered a Dauphin, or an Infante?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:03:47] <KK> Dunno. That's Rob's department.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:04:09] <jemler> the misspellings and other errata? :) ok
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:04:11] <KK> Dauphin, though I'm not sure they'd use that title.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:04:24] <Shiral> Ah, good
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:04:27] <Shiral> Thank you
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:04:29] <KK> Rob is pretty meticulous, Jemler.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:04:40] <Shiral> (I just like the title Dauphin.)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:04:54] <KK> Not sure where that came from. Anyone know?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:05:20] <Shiral> I don't either, but I could try to track it down
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:05:45] <BalanceTheEnergies> a dolphin in heraldry, mispronounced.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:06:01] <KK> But why a dolphin? That is the question.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:06:35] <Shiral> Instead of a stork, they thought Dolphins delivered royal babies?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:06:41] <Shiral> Okay probably not....
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:06:50] <KK> Probably.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:07:02] <KK> Somebody google it.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:07:45] <Shiral> Looking in My Dictionary.com
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:07:51] <Evie> Codex says Pelagog is on the western coast of Cassan. Assuming it's not in the sea, that means it's part of Cassan and. The duke is the earl'soverlord...yes?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:07:59] <BalanceTheEnergies> Guy VIII, Count of Vienne, had a dolphin on his coat of arms and had been nicknamed le Dauphin. The title of Dauphin de Viennois descended in his family the LeVieux Princes of Ivetot until 1349, when Humbert II sold his seigneurie, called the Dauphiné, to King Philippe VI on condition that the heir of France assumed the title of le Dauphin. The wife of the Dauphin was known as la Dauphine.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:08:08] <Evie> Or am I misreading?

[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:08:28] <jemler> Middle English dolphin, from Anglo-French dolphyn, from Old French dalfin, title of lords of the Dauphiné, from Dalfin, a surname
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:08:28] <jemler> First Known Use: 15th century
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:08:46] <Shiral> After 1830, the title was discontinued
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:09:13] <jemler> probably because thay ran out of KIngs in France
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:09:28] <Shiral> Well no, they had Louis Phillippe
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:09:41] <KK> Interesting.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:09:44] <Shiral> After 1848, he was deposed

[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:10:33] <BalanceTheEnergies> Well, two, since there's quartering.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:10:34] <Shiral> but the title is more of a renaissance than a medieval thing unless you want to take historical licence

[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:16:20] <jemler> heh heh
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:16:24] <duck> hi kk how fares
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:16:37] Join Evie_ has joined this channel (~IceChat77@61024F.FD378A.5CEAB8.21C73C).
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:16:38] <duck> ice cream? did someone say icecream
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:16:43] <KK> Good. And you?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:17:00] Quit Evie has left this server (Quit: Bye).
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:17:03] <Shiral> we did. How about a scoop of Gabrilite Delight?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:17:10] <Evie_> back home now
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:17:16] <duck> been a fair bit busy with that dreaded work stuff
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:17:20] <jemler> rehi evie
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:17:52] <DesertRose> Oh, that reminds me, Alkari had a work meeting, which is why she's not here.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:18:41] <KK> What are you doing now, Duck?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:18:49] <duck> shiral is the gabrilite delight soothing and healing and braided in four parts?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:18:59] <Shiral> Of course!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:19:15] <Shiral> Although braiding ice cream is the neatest trick of the week....
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:19:18] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:19:37] <Evie_> do you have to freeze it extra hard first?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:19:43] <jemler> just get DQ soft serve
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:19:54] <Shiral> Yes, although that poses its own problems
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:19:58] <DesertRose> You guys are making me want ice cream for real.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:20:22] <Shiral> A very logical response to living in Florida in July I'd say, DR
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:20:23] <jemler> with chocolate sauce, or butterscotch?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:20:26] <DesertRose> True.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:20:35] <DesertRose> Chocolate sauce. I'm not a huge butterscotch fan.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:20:55] <DesertRose> I don't dislike it, but given the choice, I'll take chocolate.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:20:57] <jemler> butter pecan, or cookies 'n cream?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:21:02] <DesertRose> Cookies and cream.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:21:05] <duck> i've gone back to my old type of work of consultancy although much more freelance - gives me spare time to make wine, beer, and other stuff
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:21:07] <Evie_> You need to try real butterscotch then. First you find someone Scotch....
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:21:12] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:21:13] <Evie_> Oh, wait, that's not the recipe
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:21:25] <DesertRose> ROFL
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:21:43] <KK> Still rescuing critters from trenches?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:21:51] <Shiral> Why am I having a vision of buttered kilts...
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:22:05] <KK> I have no idea!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:22:13] <KK> Sounds messy.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:22:24] <Shiral> Slippery for certain
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:22:34] <duck> no that type of work has long gone
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:22:39] <DesertRose> Why would you want to butter wool?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:22:44] <Evie_> If you're buttering the kilts, Shiral, we need to talk privately. The kilt should be gone by that point.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:22:49] <duck> shiral has a vision of making better kilts
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:23:07] <Shiral> but Evie, everything's better with butter!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:23:09] <DesertRose> Oh my, Evie.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:23:23] <Shiral> Although I agree with you in principal
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:23:39] <Shiral> Glad you're not having to wrestle Tai-Pans anymore, Donald
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:23:43] <jemler> do Scottish women wear kilts? And if they do, do thay slit them up the side?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:23:44] <KK> Kilts better not buttered.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:23:56] <KK> No and no, Jemler.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:23:58] <Evie_> there are kilt skirts, jemler, and no
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:24:08] <Evie_> and kilt skirts aren't true kilts
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:24:10] <Shiral> True, it leads to terrible grease stains
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:24:38] <Evie_> women have a different waist to hip ratio, so true kilt-style pleating doesn't look right on women
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:24:43] <KK> Of course wool is greasy to begin with, and they work very hard to get the grease out!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:24:59] <jemler> well, if they don't wear kilts, there's nothing to slit of the side, is there!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:25:03] <DesertRose> Yeah, the lanolin.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:25:14] <Shiral> But lanolin on toast is less appealing than buttered toast
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:25:20] <KK> True.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:25:33] <jemler> why do they call it lanolin? shouldn't it be lambolin?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:25:43] <KK> Probably.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:25:46] <Evie_> I have a friend who majored in microbiology, and they used sheep's blood for some cultures. They had to go out and catch their own sheep to collect the blood. He said he had very soft hands after a term or two of that. And he learned to hate sheep. :D
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:26:12] <KK> Sheep are pretty dumb.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:26:25] <Shiral> No sense of conversation
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:26:46] <DesertRose> I almost forgot to time the rising of my pizza dough.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:26:47] <duck> sheep are really crafty buggers though
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:26:51] <DesertRose> Making pizza for supper tonight.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:26:52] <Evie_> Sheep would get lost in a hamster wheel, except...well...they don't fit inside them. ;-)
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:27:11] <Shiral> That would be one heck of a hamster, Evei
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:27:13] <Shiral> Evie
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:27:14] <KK> Only BIG hamster wheels.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:27:24] <Evie_> You're making Jass-bait, DR?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:27:28] <DesertRose> Can't find their way out of a wet paper bag, eh?
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:27:29] <DesertRose> Yup.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:27:41] <Shiral> Not even when facing the open end
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:27:45] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:28:40] <KK> It's been fun, guys, but I've gotta run.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:28:48] <jemler> nite kk
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:28:50] <Evie_> nice seeing you again.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:28:53] <DesertRose> Okay, KK. Thanks for dropping in.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:28:55] <Shiral> Night, KK. Thanks for stopping by. HOpe you have a good writing week
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:28:59] <Evie_> especially since I didn't think I'd make it back in time
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:28:59] <KK> See you next week.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:01] <jemler> bee never showed
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:04] <BalanceTheEnergies> Good night KK and thanks!
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:10] <KK> I was wondering where Bee is.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:11] <DesertRose> Bee's mom died.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:17] <KK> Oh, sad.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:18] <jemler> she must still be at her sisters
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:20] <Shiral> poor bee
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:20] <DesertRose> So she might be doing family stuff.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:26] <Evie_> earlier this week I think, KK
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:29] <Shiral> very likely doing family stuff
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:36] <jemler> tweo weeks ago tomorrow
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:42] <KK> Probably,
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:29:54] <jemler> she told us last week
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:30:00] <KK> Well, gotta go in any case. Next week.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:30:04] <Evie_> Bye, KK
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:30:07] <DesertRose> Okay, see you, KK.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:30:07] <jemler> nite
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:30:09] <Shiral> Niht, KK
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:30:15] * Evie_ wave
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:30:17] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight,a nd disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:30:27] <KK> Nighters, all.
[Sunday 24 July 2011] [20:30:31] Quit KK has left this server (Quit: ).
"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.)
