[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:05:16 PM] <Mayacamas> Hi!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:05:18 PM] <cynicalmedic> Good evening, all
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:05:19 PM] <Annie> hi cynicalmedic and KK
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:05:21 PM] <Evie> Hi, KK! And we didn't even have to do the summoning ritual!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:05:45 PM] <jemler> although i did offer blackberry brandy! :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:05:52 PM] <Evie> and hi to cynicalmedic also
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:06:09 PM] <KK> Hi, gang.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:06:20 PM] <Evie> Oh, that reminds me, I need to go grab a glass of Fiann--um, Roscato. :-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:06:36 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:06:43 PM] <cynicalmedic> Sugar free tea, here
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:07:00 PM] <KK> Just had my tea.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:07:22 PM] <Evie> KK, I've found a red muscato wine I've fallen in love with, which tastes a lot like what I imagine the sweeter medieval wines would have tasted like, so I'm going with Roscato as being my personal "Fianna"
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:07:39 PM] <Annie> what I'm drinking just provoked 15 minutes of discussion, so I'll keep quiet ;)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:07:44 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:07:51 PM] <Evie> LOL, Annie
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:07:55 PM] <KK> Sounds interesting.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:08:03 PM] <Mayacamas> I always assumed Fianna wine was like a Porto
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:08:07 PM] <jemler> kk might know what we were talking about
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:08:31 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, seeing as KK lived in Ireland for all that time, I bet she knows what squash is.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:08:32 PM] <Evie> I'm sure KK has heard of squash. As in Orange and Lemon squash, that is, as opposed to the veggie
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:08:34 PM] <KK> Annie, what were you drinking?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:08:40 PM] <Annie> lemon squash!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:08:43 PM] <DesertRose> BRB
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:08:47 PM] <the_Bee> Massachusetts is finally allowing wine to be shipped from out of statre. I've acquired 3 bottle of red and three white.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:09:02 PM] <Annie> I think we decided there is no direct US equivalent
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:09:06 PM] Join Alkari has joined this channel (Mibbit@OWIRCN-3bd89b2c.internode.on.net).
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:09:11 PM] <Evie> Hi, Alkari
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:09:13 PM] <jemler> hi alkari
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:09:14 PM] <Annie> hi Alkari
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:09:16 PM] <the_Bee> g'day alkari
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:09:20 PM] <Alkari> HI there everyone.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:09:31 PM] <KK> To lemon squash?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:09:43 PM] * Alkari props eyes open
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:09:43 PM] <Evie> Or squashes in general, KK
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:09:54 PM] <Evie> as a liquid drink concentrate
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:10:03 PM] <Annie> yes, fruit squash doesn't seem to have crossed the Atlantic
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:10:09 PM] <the_Bee> not a vegetable
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:10:09 PM] <KK> Yeah, I don't think we have them in the US.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:10:23 PM] <Evie> except as imported beverages
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:10:52 PM] <the_Bee> Annie, your vegetable marrow is our summer squash, isn't it?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:11:01 PM] <KK> I have a Gus on my lap who is trying ot bite my fingers.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:11:20 PM] <jemler> check this out: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Robinsons-Lemon-Squash-Litre-Pack/dp/B0031Y9F4Y/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1343603467&sr=8-2
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:11:21 PM] <Evie> I'm amazed Luke and Gigi haven't come running yet
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:11:28 PM] <Annie> uh - don't know. I've never called marrow anything but marrow
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:11:30 PM] <Evie> They usually have an unerring instinct about chat time
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:11:42 PM] <the_Bee> Melantha is a vampire who bites my neck when she wants me to get up and feed her.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:11:46 PM] <KK> Isn't a marrow like a big zucchini?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:12:09 PM] <Annie> marrow is like a big fibrous courgette
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:12:21 PM] <Annie> which is zucchini, yes
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:12:25 PM] <KK> Which is a zucchini.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:12:26 PM] <Evie> which has another name here as well
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:12:39 PM] <jemler> we need someone who is bilingual in UK and US English!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:12:42 PM] <Annie> the insides are a lot more fibrous though, more like pumpkin
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:13:01 PM] <Alkari> What do you call the little ones - we get small round yellow ones that we call squash.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:13:01 PM] <Evie> I'm fairly bilingual, though Annie still manages to trip me up on occasion
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:13:18 PM] <the_Bee> I first learned about marrow from a cookbook that used British terminology.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:13:29 PM] <Annie> squash here would be the yellow or orange ones, like butternut squash
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:13:43 PM] <KK> I think the little round ones are related to yellow crook-neck squash, which I love.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:13:55 PM] <Evie> I imagine some...interesting...meals would result from substituting bone marrow for the vegetable sort. :-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:13:57 PM] <jemler> why dows that name make me wince? :)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:14:06 PM] <jemler> does, sorry
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:14:10 PM] <the_Bee> We have acorn, squash, which is sort of round.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:14:44 PM] <KK> And patty-pan, whihc looks like a little flying saucer.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:14:49 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:14:52 PM] <DesertRose> Back.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:15:00 PM] <Alkari> Never heard of that one KK!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:15:08 PM] <the_Bee> and Hubbard squash.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:15:11 PM] <jemler> used to grom them in Farmville!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:15:18 PM] <Annie> I remember reading about patty pans in a book when i was a kid and getting very confused
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:15:29 PM] <KK> You could stuff squashes of various varieties with the marrow from big marrow bones, I guess.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:15:34 PM] <cynicalmedic> They are good - my husband makes a stir fry dish with patty pan and mushrooms
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:15:42 PM] <Annie> as the tins you make little tarts or cakes in are called patty tins over here
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:15:44 PM] <KK> Oooo, that sounds good.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:15:46 PM] <Evie> I tried the medieval "wine braised c/o/n/e/y/ chicken" recipe again recently using the Roscato wine. Yum! Except it does turn the chicken a bit purple, which I don't find offputting, but others might.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:15:52 PM] <Annie> I was convinced they were eating baking trays!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:16:06 PM] <the_Bee> I made stuffed squash for a potluck supper once.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:16:29 PM] <Evie> LOL, Annie!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:16:29 PM] <the_Bee> I have chicken and sherry on my stove now.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:16:45 PM] <Annie> this is a marrow
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:16:46 PM] <Annie> http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?hl=en&sa=X&biw=882&bih=496&tbm=isch&prmd=imvnse&tbnid=bKh_w6l7w2l4eM:&imgrefurl=http://vipdictionary.com/marrow&docid=n5tqrVkmkiQ_NM&imgurl=http://vipdictionary.com/img/3523marrow.jpg&w=700&h=466&ei=V8QVUNC2MInb0QWDz4C4Dw&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=73&vpy=183&dur=1778&hovh=183&hovw=275&tx=139&ty=123&sig=104167351046943832636&page=1&tbnh
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:16:54 PM] <cynicalmedic> We are working on a permutation of Chicken Chesapeake as a casserole.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:02 PM] Join Kelric has joined this channel (~IceChat9@OWIRCN-a16c8e76.il.comcast.net).
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:05 PM] <DesertRose> My mom made sauteed zucchini and yellow crookneck squash as a side dish with roasted chicken and potatoes. Too yummy.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:11 PM] <the_Bee> hi kelric
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:16 PM] <Annie> hi Kelric

[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:21 PM] <cynicalmedic> hi Kelric
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:22 PM] <Alkari> Hi Kelric
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:25 PM] <KK> What's in Chicken Chesapeake?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:31 PM] <Mayacamas> maybe its because I am in the mountain time zone, but you guys are making me hungry
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:37 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:44 PM] <Evie> hi, Kel
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:48 PM] <cynicalmedic> Chicken stuffed with lump crabmeat and topped with bechamel
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:50 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Mayacamas.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:56 PM] <DesertRose> Hiyas Kelric.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:17:57 PM] Join Jerusha has joined this channel (Mibbit@OWIRCN-1224cef4.dsl.bell.ca).
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:01 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:02 PM] <Evie> hi, Jerusha
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:04 PM] <KK> Yum, cm!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:04 PM] <jemler> hi jerusha
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:12 PM] <the_Bee> Say hello to our newbie Mayacamas, KK.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:16 PM] <Annie> hi jerusha
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:23 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Everyone *waves*
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:24 PM] <the_Bee> and Hi Jerusha.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:24 PM] <KK> Mayacamas, you're another new name this week. Hi.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:28 PM] <cynicalmedic> hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:29 PM] <Mayacamas> Hello KK, its a pleasure!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:35 PM] <DesertRose> cynicalmedic isn't the noob any more. :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:42 PM] <Mayacamas> (KK can I say something embarassing?)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:42 PM] * Alkari waves at Jerusha
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:50 PM] <jemler> probably
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:18:51 PM] <KK> Of course, we're all family here.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:19:08 PM] <cynicalmedic> :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:19:17 PM] <Mayacamas> You wrote the first book I ever bought...and that was when your first book was published in 1978...
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:19:34 PM] <KK> Well, I'm honored. Have to ask how old you were.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:19:43 PM] <jemler> and you picked a winner the first time out!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:19:47 PM] <Mayacamas> I had to babysit three nasty little creatures for two weeks to earn the $$, I was 10 at the time.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:19:58 PM] <Evie> That's pretty cool. :-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:20:00 PM] <DesertRose> :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:20:04 PM] <KK> LOL, a good purchase with your loot!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:20:09 PM] <cynicalmedic> Combat pay!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:20:12 PM] <Mayacamas> I know!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:20:13 PM] <Jerusha> BRB - whippet wants outside
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:20:24 PM] <the_Bee> Were the nasy creatures human?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:20:30 PM] <Evie> Oof! Luke has come to join us. Can't...breathe.... :-D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:20:41 PM] <jemler> hi luke
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:21:11 PM] <jemler> gigi, here kitty, kitty, kitty!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:21:13 PM] <cynicalmedic> Books are still a big indulgence for me
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:21:30 PM] * Evie adjusts to a more sitting position so heavy kitteh won't stand directly on my lungs with his two-ton weight concentrated in his paws
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:21:59 PM] <the_Bee> Hi Luke
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:22:18 PM] <jemler> melantha! luke's here!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:22:22 PM] <Evie> I just downloaded The Adept to my Kindle, just for a change of pace from the Deryni world. Although I have to say that, even though I like Adam, the Deryni world is very much my first love.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:23:05 PM] <jemler> Deryni world = Duncam MacLean
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:23:10 PM] <Evie> Luke has settled into a comfortable position for both of us, allowing me to see the screen again without peering through fur at awkward angles
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:23:17 PM] <Evie> exactly, jemler. ;-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:23:32 PM] <Evie> Can't stray too far from The Beloved. :-D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:23:32 PM] <KK> Gus has just retreated to his basket above my desk--thank goodness!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:24:06 PM] <Evie> DH has put up new shelves in DD's room. Luke thinks the new "kitteh perches" are just for him.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:24:14 PM] <DesertRose> Of course they are, Evie.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:24:21 PM] <KK> That's very true, Evie. I've never had a cat who was so devoted to me.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:24:23 PM] <Evie> He likes to get on the highest one and just lurk
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:24:30 PM] <DesertRose> All the world's either cat food or cat toys.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:24:35 PM] <cynicalmedic> I finally found my copy of Lammas Night - it was buried under the set of Anne of Green Gables I am saving for my niece
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:25:01 PM] <Jerusha> Back. I think my female whippet does this out of jealousy
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:25:03 PM] <the_Bee> Melantha's sleeping in my bed.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:25:04 PM] <DesertRose> I had one when I was in college/uni who was very devoted to me. I still miss him. I had to leave him with my ex when we split up, and he got lost when my ex moved.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:25:08 PM] <Evie> Now that I have a Kindle, I might actually be able to find and read Lammas Night.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:25:37 PM] <DesertRose> His name was Cyrano, and maybe one of these days, I'll get the pics I have of him scanned so I can post him in the Fur Kids gallery.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:25:50 PM] <Jerusha> Please do!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:25:53 PM] <jemler> http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Deryni_Powers
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:26:05 PM] <cynicalmedic> What is it with animals and chat? I now have 55 lbs of yellow lab trying to see what I am doing.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:26:09 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:26:24 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:26:32 PM] <Annie> lol
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:26:33 PM] <Jerusha> Maybe it's a lab experiment
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:26:35 PM] <Mayacamas> My writing dog insists on licking the screen. My running dog is at my feet
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:26:36 PM] <jemler> he thought you said "Cat" and got hungry! :)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:27:00 PM] <DesertRose> The animals get jealous when it's chat time. :)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:27:04 PM] <cynicalmedic> He's too old to chase the cat - he's fourteen.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:27:28 PM] <Evie> I think I found this Deryni Powers page once, a few years ago, when I was trying to refresh my memories to write that first fanfic without access to my original books and before I got my hands on the RPG
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:27:35 PM] <jemler> people or dog years?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:27:36 PM] <DesertRose> Ah.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:27:37 PM] <KK> I also have a 14-year-old--half Basset and half Golden Retriever/Lab cross, name of Oswald.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:28:05 PM] <the_Bee> That's pretty old for such a large combo.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:28:12 PM] <cynicalmedic> This is Biscuit - he had the name when we adopted him. All of our dogs are rescues and misfits
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:28:28 PM] <jemler> Half basset, quarter G. Retriever, Quarter Lab. huh.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:28:36 PM] <DesertRose> Hey, at least you didn't name a black cat Midnight, like some people I could name *coughmyfathercough*
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:28:47 PM] <Evie> All my pets are too. Even the hermit crabs, when I used to have those, were rescues.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:28:48 PM] <cynicalmedic> Mine is Whisper
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:29:08 PM] <Jerusha> My son't is Asker
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:29:14 PM] <Jerusha> Son's
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:29:17 PM] <DesertRose> I tease my daughter that she should have named PJ (the family cat) Shadow, because she hides so well.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:29:18 PM] <jemler> moor cat from Shannara
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:29:30 PM] <KK> And then, there's Booker, who is half Basset and half Eltlebucher Mountain Dog, and Warner, who is all Basset.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:29:52 PM] <KK> Entlebucher
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:30:02 PM] * Evie 's right wrist is starting to go numb under Luke's hefty bulk
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:30:13 PM] * DesertRose goes off to google Entlebucher Mountain dog.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:30:36 PM] <KK> Booker's herding half is very strong. He herds the mail truck, so we have to keep them in until the mail has come.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:30:40 PM] <Mayacamas> I have Lily,the writing dog. She is Samoyed Aussie and Terrier. I found her on Petfinder, 6 states away and had to adopt her. She has been very good luck!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:30:58 PM] <KK> Entlebuchers are related to Bernese Mountain Dogs.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:31:13 PM] <KK> Smaller, and with short hair.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:31:14 PM] <cynicalmedic> My brother has a Berner named Random
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:31:15 PM] <DesertRose> They're cute. I went and skimmed the Wikipedia page about them.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:31:18 PM] <jemler> lloks like the dogs from The Omen
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:31:41 PM] <DesertRose> I'm not as familiar with dog breeds as I am with cats.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:31:54 PM] <Evie> I haven't been able to buy much for the Action Figure project lately, as it's school fees and supply buying time, but I did get some lovely patterns for fairly authentic medieval Barbie costumes, so I'm hoping to have a project or two to bring to DragonCon with me.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:32:01 PM] <the_Bee> There was a news item this morning: the woman whose 6-yr-old daughter was killed in the Aurora Co. massacre had a miscarriage while undergoing surgery for her own njuries. :(
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:32:02 PM] <DesertRose> Cool.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:32:09 PM] <DesertRose> Oh no, Bee.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:32:14 PM] <Evie> :-(
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:32:20 PM] <KK> How very sad.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:32:24 PM] <jemler> i can tell the differnce between a poodle and domerman, other than that....
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:32:27 PM] <DesertRose> The "cool" comment was to Evie's thing about DragonCon.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:32:30 PM] <cynicalmedic> :(
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:32:40 PM] <the_Bee> Yes, I assumed that.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:32:40 PM] <Evie> We figured as much, DR
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:33:12 PM] <Evie> KK, how are Morgan and Brion coming along this week?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:33:19 PM] <DesertRose> I just wanted to be super clear. It would be in supremely poor taste to say that, not to mention inconsiderate.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:33:36 PM] <Jerusha> We understand, DR.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:33:42 PM] <DesertRose> Thanks.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:33:55 PM] <the_Bee> Don't worry. We're used to cross-posting.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:33:58 PM] <DesertRose> True.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:34:09 PM] <Mayacamas> DR, I live in Denver, and people understand that there is profound sadness, and its important to move on with life, too.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:34:15 PM] <Jerusha> I wondered if the action figures had gone off on a summer hunt or something
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:34:25 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, yikes.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:34:43 PM] <DesertRose> Colorado has taken quite a hammering this year, between wildfires and Aurora.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:34:51 PM] <Evie> they've just gone on hiatus because I've had minimal money and free time this month, Jerusha
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:34:51 PM] <KK> Dreadful business in Aurora.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:35:01 PM] <DesertRose> Indeed, KK.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:35:08 PM] <KK> Evie, I'll try to bring you some more fabric scraps at Dragoncon.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:35:10 PM] <Mayacamas> Indeed.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:35:23 PM] <the_Bee> and there have been at least two stories of would-be copycats.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:35:28 PM] <Evie> Thank you, KK! Now if you can bring me more free time as well, I'll be set. ;-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:35:31 PM] <Jerusha> Oh no!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:35:32 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, crap. Evie, I haven't forgotten about the black linen. I may be able to send it middle of this week.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:35:40 PM] <cynicalmedic> One here in Maryland as a matter of fact
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:35:44 PM] <Evie> No rush, DR
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:35:59 PM] <DesertRose> I still have it in my sewing box. I just haven't got round to posting it.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:36:01 PM] <Evie> I read about the Maryland one
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:36:02 PM] <jemler> that gentle giant thing, cm?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:36:13 PM] <KK> I saw a story today, of a similar event thwarted because the perp was talking about it in his taxi--maybe on the phone? Surely not to the driver. Anyway, the driver reported the incident, and the perp was taken into custody.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:36:13 PM] <the_Bee> one in Maine. He wanted to settle a 12-yr grudge against his former boss.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:36:39 PM] <DesertRose> I actually have an envelope to send it in, too; I just need to get my tail to the post office and get it in the mail.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:36:46 PM] <cynicalmedic> Gentle giant?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:36:52 PM] * jemler lays out some Dolle's Salt Water Taffy
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:37:00 PM] <Evie> Bring the rest of you too when you go, DR, or they'll look at you very oddly. ;-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:37:04 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:37:12 PM] <cynicalmedic> ROFL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:38:01 PM] <cynicalmedic> Do you need fabric, Evie? I have access to a nice quilt shop that has lovely fat quarters
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:38:07 PM] <Jerusha> KK, how are Morgan and Brion this week? Making progress?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:38:24 PM] <Evie> I dreamed about Duncan last night. Nothing all that noteworthy--he was just visiting Cassan and going up some stairs to the solar. Not sure why I remembered that upon waking up, but I did.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:38:36 PM] <DesertRose> Dreams are odd thing.s
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:38:38 PM] <DesertRose> *things.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:38:49 PM] <Alkari> Maybe he wants you to redesign his castle?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:39:10 PM] <DesertRose> I got back in touch with an old friend because of having a dream that he'd been harmed in some fashion, and then shortly after we started emailing again, he got hit by a car. Spooky. He's recovering, BTW.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:39:15 PM] <jemler> maybe you are going to meet him in the solar
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:39:29 PM] <Jerusha> Gald he's OK, DR
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:39:42 PM] <the_Bee> Does he look like your Duncan-doll?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:39:52 PM] <DesertRose> Me too. I about had a heart attack when I heard through a mutual friend about the accident.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:39:59 PM] <Evie> Depends on the fabric, cm. I'm pretty well set for plain fabrics, but if there are any tiny prints that are proportional and also not modern looking, I do keep an eye out for those. Geometrics and such.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:40:13 PM] <KK> We're not seeing much of Duncan thse days. Alaric is on his way to Coroth with Brion.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:40:23 PM] <Evie> Sometimes quilting fabric has tinier prints than you are likely too find in other fabric meant for clothing
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:40:42 PM] <jemler> is maryse around?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:40:58 PM] <KK> Nope.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:41:00 PM] <Jerusha> Is Duncan in seminary yet?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:41:13 PM] <KK> We won't see any of that part of Duncan's story in this book.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:41:38 PM] <cynicalmedic> I'll ask at the shop - I buy trim for my projects there
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:41:39 PM] <KK> No. He's only 10.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:41:41 PM] <Alkari> I gues Alaric and Dunca don't see much of each other, anyway
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:41:42 PM] <Jerusha> Um, will we maybe see it later, sometime?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:41:50 PM] <the_Bee> My sisters and I are looking for a ring to replace the heirloom my brother lost. I don't suppose anyone in Florida has seen a ring in a pawnshop that has gold nuggets encased in a hard, clear substance.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:41:53 PM] <Evie> Does the Duncan in the dream look like my action figure Duncan? Yes and no. Sky blue eyes but darker brown hair. i see very clear features in my head for many of KK's characters, including Duncan, that don't translate well to any doll or artwork
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:41:59 PM] <Alkari> If Alaric is in Rhemuth and Duncan is in Cassan
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:42:07 PM] <KK> Probably not.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:42:23 PM] <Evie> No Duncan? OK, I'll need that black linen for a mourning costume, DR, if there's enough of it... ;-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:42:30 PM] <DesertRose> Nope, sorry, I haven't been in a pawnshop in ages, Bee.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:42:45 PM] <DesertRose> Mourning for the doll, not for a grown human, sorry. :)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:43:07 PM] <the_Bee> We think it fell out of his pocket when he was playing tennis.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:43:09 PM] <Evie> I'll create a doll-sized mini-me then
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:43:24 PM] <DesertRose> What the heck was he doing with an heirloom in his pocket playing tennis?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:43:41 PM] <jemler> mini-Evie?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:43:44 PM] <DesertRose> I have a few pieces of family jewelry, and I wouldn't DREAM of taking them with me to the YMCA to work out.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:43:55 PM] <the_Bee> He didn't want to wear it while playing.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:44:09 PM] <DesertRose> I wouldn't have taken it with me at all. I'd have left it home in its box.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:44:17 PM] <the_Bee> He wore it all the time.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:44:19 PM] <DesertRose> I don't even take my university ring with me to the gym.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:44:21 PM] <DesertRose> Oh.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:44:33 PM] <DesertRose> And I wear that ring rather a lot.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:44:53 PM] <Jerusha> Things get lost when you least expect it
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:44:56 PM] <DesertRose> True.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:45:03 PM] <jemler> Harvard? Yale? Princeton?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:45:15 PM] <DesertRose> Nope. Nothing that prestigious.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:45:17 PM] <the_Bee> I have no idea where in Florida he was. Sue, Dottie and I are serach Montpelier, Toronto, Boston and the internet/
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:45:23 PM] <DesertRose> College of Charleston, SC.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:45:40 PM] <jemler> Kent State University
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:45:43 PM] <Evie> I tend to keep my heirloom jewelry in my safety deposit box because I'm afraid of losing it or having it get stolen. Though I have some favorite costume jewelry rings that I never take off, along with my wedding ring
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:45:44 PM] <DesertRose> Oh dear.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:45:52 PM] <Mayacamas> I lost my engagement ring by accident, and it killed me.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:46:05 PM] <DesertRose> Oh yikes, Mayacamas.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:46:08 PM] <Jerusha> Yipe!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:46:10 PM] <Mayacamas> Oddly though, I found it about 3 months later in the garden
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:46:14 PM] <Alkari> :(
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:46:18 PM] <DesertRose> Well, all's well that ends well, then.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:46:21 PM] <Jerusha> Excellent
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:46:28 PM] <Evie> That's good.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:46:31 PM] <jemler> only if she got married
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:46:37 PM] <the_Bee> Da's parents bought it for ?dad in the 1920s. Mom wore it as an engagement ring because it was the Depression and Dad couldn't afford a diamond.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:47:15 PM] <DesertRose> I have a lovely pendant that is a miniature pearl ring that belonged to my grandmother. The ring itself would fit on a newborn's hand, it's that teensy, but it's really pretty.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:47:28 PM] <KK> Scott lost a family signet ring in Ireland, chucking wood on a pile. We never found it. And I lost a silver earring; fortunately, was able to find a jeweler who could make me a replacement.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:47:54 PM] <DesertRose> And apparently, there is a really nice diamond ring that belonged to my other grandmother that my aunt has now but was instructed to leave to me when she passes.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:47:56 PM] <Evie> I lost my high school class ring in a goat pen and didn't find it again for years. A guy with a metal detector came by asking if I knew of any good places he might try finding coins and the like, and I asked him to search the goat pen. He managed to find it.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:48:04 PM] <jemler> family signet? was it 2 K's back to back?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:48:05 PM] <DesertRose> A goat pen?!?!?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:48:31 PM] <Mayacamas> Wow, goat pen!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:48:34 PM] <KK> No, his family. Ie belonged to his grandfather, I think.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:48:38 PM] <the_Bee> not the kind of pen you write with, I assume.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:48:40 PM] * jemler starts humming 'Green Acres'
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:48:43 PM] <Mayacamas> Thats really lucky!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:48:56 PM] <Jerusha> That might have had something to do with The Rustic Prince?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:49:08 PM] <cynicalmedic> My sister lost her rings rather oddly. She is an equine vet tech, so I will spare you the details
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:49:10 PM] <Evie> LOL! No, Bee. A holding area for milking goats. I spent some of my late childhood years on a farm
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:49:25 PM] <jemler> thank you. cm
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:49:28 PM] <Evie> Yeah, it might have, Jerusha. ;-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:49:33 PM] <KK> Reminds me of the woman who lost her wedding ring, I think it was, while gardening; it showed up years later, with a carrot growing through it.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:49:45 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:49:49 PM] <Mayacamas> now thats a great story!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:49:51 PM] <Jerusha> Was it a karot diamond?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:49:53 PM] <the_Bee> 20-karat?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:49:57 PM] <Evie> And yes, I wanted to be a vet once, and assisted in a vet clinic as my first job, so I can imagine, cm. :-D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:50:30 PM] <DesertRose> Vet school is tough to get into because there aren't all that many of them.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:50:36 PM] <jemler> the closest i ever came to being a vet was when i disected a frog in biology
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:50:39 PM] <DesertRose> Or at least, it used to be that way.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:50:49 PM] <Jerusha> Very difficult, from what I understand
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:51:02 PM] <DesertRose> I have an aunt by marriage who is a veterinarian.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:51:03 PM] <KK> I tink it's still that way. Harder to get into than med school.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:51:13 PM] <the_Bee> There's a TV show this fall aboout a vet. I think it's a comedy.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:51:21 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, they can be really selective because there just aren't that many schools.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:51:30 PM] <Mayacamas> it is. my best friend is a vet, and it took her a while to get in
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:51:35 PM] <Evie> Yeah, I didn't have the math skills to get into vet school, but I decided in my sophomore year that I preferred English Lit instead
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:51:39 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:52:04 PM] <DesertRose> English majors, unite!! :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:52:17 PM] <Alkari> Yes. And if you are a large-animal vet, you have to be prepared to get out and go TO your patients at all hours of the day and night
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:52:31 PM] <DesertRose> Now if I could only dream up a way to get through transcription school. :)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:52:40 PM] <cynicalmedic> Can't just put the horse in a car and go
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:52:52 PM] <DesertRose> My aunt does some large animal work, and some exotic, too.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:52:59 PM] <Mayacamas> I gotta run-- time to feed the herd. Thank you all for the fun! Good night, and until next week!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:52:59 PM] <DesertRose> Never a dull moment.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:53:09 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, take care, Mayacamas. Thanks for joining us!! :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:53:11 PM] <Evie> I was looking at either small animal or mixed practice, given my size and my preference not to work with livestock that could trample me
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:53:13 PM] <Alkari> Night Mayacamas.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:53:14 PM] <KK> Nighters, Mayacamas.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:53:17 PM] <the_Bee> good night and come again.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:53:18 PM] <cynicalmedic> Good night
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:53:21 PM] <jemler> nite mayacamas
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:53:22 PM] <Evie> though I briefly toyed with the idea of being a vet for exotics
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:53:27 PM] <Jerusha> Night Mayacamas!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:53:27 PM] <Evie> Bye, Mayacama
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:53:34 PM] <Evie> with an s, even
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:54:10 PM] <cynicalmedic> We had a 911 run last night for a guy with a case of athlete's foot - at 2 am
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:54:21 PM] <DesertRose> Seriously?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:54:25 PM] Quit Mayacamas has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:54:27 PM] <Jerusha> Terminal athelete's foot?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:54:27 PM] <Alkari> You're joking?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:54:29 PM] <cynicalmedic> Seriously
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:54:29 PM] <Evie> LOL! At TWO? For ATHLETE'S FOOT?!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:54:32 PM] <KK> Must have been really sore tootsies.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:54:47 PM] <cynicalmedic> Yes, it was that kind of shift last night.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:54:49 PM] <Annie> night Mayacamas
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:54:57 PM] <KK> It isn't even a full moon.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:55:01 PM] <jemler> 911 for athletes foot! was it stuck somewhere seriously funny!?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:55:14 PM] <cynicalmedic> No, unfortunately
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:55:22 PM] <Jerusha> Perhaps it was supporting the Olympics
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:55:30 PM] <Alkari> That's the sort of patient your triage nurse should have sitting htrere for about 8 hours waiting for treatment :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:55:46 PM] <Evie> Speaking of the Olympics, I think the Queen may be my favorite Bond Girl now. :-D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:55:56 PM] <Alkari> Wasn't she great :)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:55:57 PM] <KK> Wasn't that great?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:56:04 PM] <jemler> then i better call 911. i'm having a bad hair day
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:56:06 PM] <DesertRose> cynicalmedic: I used to date a paramedic, and he could tell some tales, let me tell you, but 911 for athlete's foot is ridiculous.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:56:23 PM] <the_Bee> you mean the image of her coming down via parachute or balloon?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:56:30 PM] <cynicalmedic> I can tell some too - but most are - colorful
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:56:38 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, I can imagine.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:56:39 PM] <Evie> Well, that and the part that came before it, Bee
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:56:42 PM] <jemler> oooh! do tell!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:56:55 PM] <DesertRose> jemler likes colorful stories. :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:56:58 PM] <the_Bee> I only caught a brief glimpse on TV.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:57:13 PM] <Evie> it's on the Internet. there's a full version on Vimeo
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:57:19 PM] <Evie> hang on, let me find it...
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:57:25 PM] <Jerusha> I thought it was very well done
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:57:32 PM] <KK> Actually jumping, and in the chopper, were stunt doubles. But it was the Queen in her sitting room, and walking down the orrisor, and those were her corgis.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:57:48 PM] <KK> corridor
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:57:53 PM] <Evie> Not a valid vimeo URL[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:57:54 PM] <DesertRose> I didn't get a chance to watch the opening ceremony; I should probably go find it and watch it, but I really should do more of my practicum.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:01 PM] <Alkari> Apparently she was thrilled to be asked
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:15 PM] <Jerusha> Our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel saw the Corgis and charged at the TV. He's 14!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:22 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:23 PM] <KK> It was a good jewel in her Jubilee year.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:27 PM] <DesertRose> Indeed.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:27 PM] <Annie> I think I'm going to head for bed
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:32 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, nighters, Annie.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:33 PM] <Evie> Good night, Annie
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:38 PM] <Annie> night all :)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:39 PM] <KK> What practicum, DR?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:40 PM] <cynicalmedic> Night, Annie
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:46 PM] <the_Bee> Thanks, Evie. I'll watch when chat's over.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:47 PM] Quit Annie has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:47 PM] <Jerusha> Night Annie! Glad you could chat
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:47 PM] <Alkari> Night Annie
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:58:51 PM] <DesertRose> I'm in school for medical transcription/editing.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:59:06 PM] <KK> Ah.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:59:17 PM] <cynicalmedic> Ah, the brave souls that transcribe doctor speak into English
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:59:18 PM] <Jerusha> Do you have much more to do before graduating?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:59:24 PM] <the_Bee> Annie needs her sleep.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:59:28 PM] <KK> I have a friend who does that, in Vancouver.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:59:43 PM] Join Vespuccian has joined this channel (Vespuccian@3EB374.9B210B.741A34.767DA2).
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:59:43 PM] <DesertRose> It's not that difficult but the practicum is kind of tedious. I've already done about 75 practice transcriptions, but I have about 200 more in the Clinic Notes unit to go yet.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:59:48 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Vespuccian.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:59:52 PM] <Evie> Hello, Vespuccian
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [07:59:56 PM] <the_Bee> Hi Sespucian

[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:09 PM] <cynicalmedic> Hi Vespuccian
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:09 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Vespuccian
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:10 PM] <Vespuccian> Hello all.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:12 PM] <Vespuccian> Hi!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:14 PM] <Vespuccian> :-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:20 PM] * Alkari waves
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:23 PM] <KK> Hello, Vespuccian.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:26 PM] <DesertRose> Translating doctor-speak isn't really that difficult unless you get someone who mumbles or talks really fast.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:36 PM] <Evie> Fianna is on the side table and there's some other refreshments as well.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:43 PM] <Vespuccian> Salutations.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:44 PM] <DesertRose> I had to do one earlier today with a doctor who mumbled and had a heavy Australian accent.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:53 PM] <DesertRose> That one was pretty challenging.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:00:59 PM] <cynicalmedic> I am just grateful for EMR. I think I would go blind, otherwise
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:01:09 PM] <the_Bee> I thought it was doctors' handwriting that was supposed to be illegible.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:01:12 PM] <Jerusha> EMR?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:01:22 PM] <DesertRose> Electronic Medical Records.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:01:34 PM] <cynicalmedic> Electronic medical record - they type their notes and prescriptions
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:01:56 PM] <DesertRose> A lot of them do have horrid handwriting; the typing helps a lot, and the dictation helps unless they mumble or talk super fast.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:02:05 PM] <DesertRose> Some of them run through the vital signs particularly super fast.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:02:53 PM] <Evie> I remember a friend laughing about a correction she had to make in her notes in someone's medical record. Instead of "Patient was advised to use Robitussin," she'd quickly scrawled "Patient was advised to sue Robitussin."
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:02:56 PM] <Alkari> I am always amazed that anyone could ever read doctors'prescriptions when they were hand written
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:03:04 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Evie.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:03:13 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, I never envied pharmacists.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:03:34 PM] <DesertRose> One of my doctors has a lovely signature, at least, though, so not every doctor has horrid handwriting.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:03:58 PM] <cynicalmedic> I work with eleven cardiologists - two with nice handwriting, but the others..
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:04:22 PM] <the_Bee> KK, you still haven't answered Jerusha's question about Brion and Alaric's progress.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:04:34 PM] <jemler> their handwriting looks like an ekg?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:04:40 PM] <cynicalmedic> Worse
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:04:50 PM] <KK> The last time I saw my GP, they sent my prescription directly to the pharmacy, so that it was waiting for me by the time I could get there. Very cool.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:05:11 PM] <DesertRose> My GP does the same thing, KK. I don't have to get paper prescriptions from her any more.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:05:12 PM] <KK> I did, Bee. THey're on their way to Coroth.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:05:33 PM] <cynicalmedic> It saves a lot of time and phone calls.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:05:35 PM] <the_Bee> oops, sorry I'll have to go back and hunt.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:05:38 PM] <Jerusha> This is after Brion's betrothal to Jehanna?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:05:45 PM] <KK> No, before.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:05:59 PM] <Jerusha> Ahh
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:06:06 PM] <DesertRose> How old is Brion at this point, KK?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:06:39 PM] <KK> Early 20's. Alaric is 10.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:06:42 PM] <DesertRose> Okay.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:07:02 PM] <DesertRose> I keep forgetting, Brion is a good deal Alaric's senior. I'm used to thinking of them as agemates, when they really weren't.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:07:03 PM] <Evie> Has Brion grown his beard yet, or is that something he decides to try later in life?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:07:05 PM] <Jerusha> So does Brion go back to Bremagne for the betrothal?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:07:32 PM] <cynicalmedic> Why do I imagine a ten year old Alaric looking like the little boy that played Darth Vader in the tv commercials?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:08:01 PM] <Alkari> He'd probably be a Seriously Cute 10 y.o. with that blond hair
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:08:03 PM] <Evie> :-D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:08:05 PM] <jemler> that kid had heart surgery
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:08:15 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:08:36 PM] <jemler> i know, dr. you're not laughing at they surgery
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:08:36 PM] <Jerusha> Would he still be a page, at 10?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:08:38 PM] <DesertRose> (at alaric looking like the Darth Vader kid, not to the kid having heart surgery.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:08:52 PM] <KK> I think the trip to Coroth will be the setup for the betrothal. The old Hort of Orsaldies, so Brion and Alaric go across to witness the installation of the new Hort--and Duke Richard may well meet the Orsal's sister at that time, though they won't get together for several years.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:09:25 PM] <DesertRose> That's Araxie's parents, right?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:09:37 PM] <DesertRose> (duke Richard and the Orsal's sister)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:09:38 PM] <Alkari> Because Alaric is not yet 14 when they battle the Marluk, I htought?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:09:48 PM] <Jerusha> I think he
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:10:00 PM] <Jerusha> is just barely 14, then
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:10:02 PM] <Alkari> And it was only after this that Jehana discovered he was Deryni?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:10:32 PM] <Alkari> I thought he wasn't yet of legal age?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:10:36 PM] <DesertRose> I think it was fairly well known that Alaric is Deryni.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:10:59 PM] <Evie> Fairly well known in Gwynedd, but not necessarily in Bremagne
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:10:59 PM] <Jerusha> Except Jehanna didn't know
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:11:05 PM] <DesertRose> Well, there is that.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:11:07 PM] <DesertRose> :)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:11:10 PM] <KK> Re Jehana--her father may well be at the installation. And yes, Richard and the Orsal's sister are Araxie's eventual parents.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:11:11 PM] <Evie> especially if Jehana's been locked away in convent school
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:11:18 PM] <DesertRose> True.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:12:12 PM] <Alkari> I am surprised she didn't know immediately she married Brion, because I was under the impression she only took a set against Alaric when he helped Brion use magic?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:12:26 PM] <DesertRose> BRB
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:12:47 PM] <KK> She obvioiusly has to know, but it's that he and Brion use magic that sets her off.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:13:02 PM] <jemler> if brion had been a better plumber, maybe jehana wouldn't have been such a b----
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:13:09 PM] <Jerusha> Brion wouldn't have accessed the complete Haldane potential when he married Jehanna, I don't think
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:13:09 PM] * Evie smacks jemler with a mackerel so often, she's created a macro for it. *thwack!*
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:13:25 PM] <jemler> what'd i say?! :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:13:36 PM] <DesertRose> JEMLER!!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:13:36 PM] * Evie loads up a catapult with a basket of sardines and lays siege to jemler's head
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:13:55 PM] <jemler> WHAT!?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:14:10 PM] <Jerusha> Tsk, tsk
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:14:13 PM] <DesertRose> If you have to bleep it, you probably oughtn't say it in here, that's what.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:14:38 PM] <jemler> oh, ok. no more bleeps. :p
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:14:42 PM] <Evie> Plumbing? really? :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:14:43 PM] <DesertRose> :P
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:14:48 PM] <Jerusha> How long were Brion and Jehanna married before she concieved Kelson?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:15:08 PM] <KK> A year or two, as I recall.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:15:35 PM] <Evie> Not long after he dragged his wife home from her sulk, IIRC
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:15:46 PM] <Alkari> Yes.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:16:26 PM] <Alkari> Brion going to fetch her home would be an "interesting' scene :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:16:43 PM] <Jerusha> And did Alaric go along?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:16:44 PM] <KK> I think it will be a <very> interesting scene.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:16:47 PM] <Evie> "Stop this nonsense and get your impertinent little queenly butt home so I can reason with you about all of this from a horizontal position. And perhaps a few vertical ones as well."
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:16:55 PM] <Alkari> Oh good - we do get it, KK?!!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:17:01 PM] <jemler> Jerusha, probably not.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:17:03 PM] <Jerusha> EVIE!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:17:13 PM] * Evie whistles innocently :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:17:28 PM] <Alkari> You can come home quietly, or I can send the soldiers in
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:17:28 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, Evie. That's almost as bad as jemler's remark!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:17:33 PM] <KK> I think it may be even more emphatic than that.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:17:43 PM] <Alkari> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:17:46 PM] <jemler> ok, throw the fish. it's obvious i'vwe corrupted Evie.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:17:56 PM] * Evie searches her grimoire to see if there's a spell for turning jemler to a frog
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:18:02 PM] <Alkari> Yes, it's a shame that Brion didn't exert a little more 'discipline'over his wife.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:18:18 PM] <Jerusha> That can be a double edged sword
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:18:21 PM] <jemler> a little more 'little discipline'
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:18:30 PM] <Alkari> Or so a Henry VIII and get rid of her :0
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:18:33 PM] <Alkari> ;)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:19:02 PM] <Evie> talk about an altered universe version!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:20:04 PM] <DesertRose> I don't see Brion has Henry VIII though. :)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:20:12 PM] <Evie> So, will we get to see Emphatic Brion in writing? :-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:20:19 PM] <cynicalmedic> Me, either.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:20:37 PM] <Evie> Because I'm all for seeing Emphatic Haldanes. :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:20:39 PM] <Jerusha> I don't think Alaric could have coped if Brion had eight wives
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:20:45 PM] <Alkari> Be a great scene, KK :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:20:48 PM] <DesertRose> Six.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:20:57 PM] <KK> I hope so, Alkari.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:20:58 PM] <DesertRose> It would be a fun scene to see. :)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:21:07 PM] <Alkari> Well, only a couple of them survived, Jerusha
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:21:11 PM] <Evie> I'm not sure Brion could have coped with having six wives, if any of the others were like his first!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:21:23 PM] <Alkari> Divorced, beheded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:21:45 PM] <Jerusha> Then died in childbirth after her next husband
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:21:52 PM] <DesertRose> Well, divorced, beheaded, died in childbed, annulled, beheaded, survived him only to die in childbirth.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:22:18 PM] <Jerusha> Not a great track record - or advertisemant for royal marriages
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:22:19 PM] <DesertRose> I have Alison Weir's book about the six wives. It's fascinating reading if you're into history like I am.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:22:31 PM] <DesertRose> No, Katherine Parr didn't really want to marry him, but what can you do?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:22:46 PM] <cynicalmedic> I thought that was a good book, too.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:22:51 PM] <Alkari> Saying NO to Henry VIII was not really a good career option.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:22:54 PM] <Evie> Yeah, it's kind of hard to say, "Sorry, Your Maj, but I'm just not all that into you."
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:23:03 PM] <DesertRose> Can you blame her, though, after his track record? He'd just executed Katherine Howard for infidelity.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:23:10 PM] <KK> Did she die in childbirth? I'd forgotten what happened to her. I know she was in love with the man she arried after Henry.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:23:19 PM] <Jerusha> Some did refuse, though. He started to have trouble finding wives
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:23:21 PM] <Alkari> He had the right ideas about a difficult Church though :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:23:29 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, she died in childbed of a little girl, of whom the record is lost mostly.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:23:49 PM] <Evie> Can't imagine why they weren't lining up eagerly (she says, tongue firmly stuffed in cheek)
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:23:52 PM] <DesertRose> The little girl (whose name was Mary, IIRC) appears not to have survived to adulthood.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:24:11 PM] <KK> That's sad--but very common for those times.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:24:20 PM] <DesertRose> Puerperal fever was a real problem in those days.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:24:36 PM] <cynicalmedic> No anribiotics
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:24:40 PM] <the_Bee> Brion wasn't the dominating tyle and Jehanna wasn't submissive.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:24:43 PM] <Jerusha> Especially after a long labour
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:24:44 PM] <cynicalmedic> antibiotics
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:24:52 PM] <DesertRose> And not very clean conditions either.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:24:56 PM] <Evie> Might have been less of a problem if the tradition of sharing childbirthing sheets (unwashed) hadn't been so prevalent
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:25:07 PM] <Jerusha> Yuck
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:25:07 PM] <Evie> since they were ruined already
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:25:21 PM] <KK> Ewww! Surely they would have been washed.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:25:24 PM] <Evie> and therefore presumably best shared around rather than ruining fresh, clean ones
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:25:28 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, as much as I love medieval/early Renaissance history, I wouldn't have wanted to have lived then.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:25:36 PM] <Alkari> No
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:25:50 PM] <Evie> Depends on what sources you read, KK, though that tidbit has turned up in one or two i've read
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:25:57 PM] <jemler> where's a good place to order meade from?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:26:10 PM] <DesertRose> You would think they'd wash the things, even if they reused them for nothing other than childbirth.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:26:15 PM] <Evie> Not sure, jemler, since I just get my mead from friends who make it
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:26:22 PM] <cynicalmedic> Mount Hope Winery in Lancaster, Pa
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:26:40 PM] <Evie> You'd think, DR. but time of year might have also figured in.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:26:58 PM] <Evie> It's easier to do laundry in summer than winter, when hand washing and drying
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:27:34 PM] <DesertRose> True.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:27:42 PM] <KK> Even so, would any of you want to lie on sheets that hadn't been washed? Yuck! And childbirth is messy!
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:27:55 PM] <DesertRose> Indeed.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:27:55 PM] <Evie> Some people just washed smaller items like underclothing on a somewhat regular basis, and large linens only a few times a year
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:27:58 PM] <Jerusha> No, I can't imagine it.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:28:14 PM] <DesertRose> Well, it depends on which specific period you're talking about and your social class.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:28:30 PM] <Evie> I don't think they'd have used them during the birth itself, but afterwards. During the actual birth, most women would have used birthing stools
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:28:30 PM] <DesertRose> Elizabeth I had laundresses to wash her sheets and chemises.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:28:51 PM] <Evie> so there'd be bloodstaining from the lochia afterwards, but not necessarily from the birthing process
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:29:02 PM] <DesertRose> Even so. Yuk.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:29:10 PM] Part Vespuccian has left this channel.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:29:21 PM] <DesertRose> I think we grossed Vespuccian out.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:29:22 PM] <DesertRose> :P
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:29:28 PM] <Alkari> Yes, we tend to take modern washing and sanitation almost for granted
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:29:29 PM] <KK> Afraid so.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:29:40 PM] <Evie> boiling would have cleaned the germs, if not all the stains, but maybe some times of year the full laundering would be less practical?
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:29:40 PM] <jemler> thanks cynicalmedic, i'll check it out.
[Sunday, July 29, 2012] [08:30:01 PM] <DesertRose> Maybe.

"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.)
