KK Chat -- 23 Sept 2012 Part 2
« on: September 23, 2012, 08:10:31 pm »
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:23:40 PM] <Evie> I have just the trim for it
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:23:55 PM] <DesertRose> Ah, okay.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:23:58 PM] <the_Bee> If it's an undergarment, I hope it's soft linen.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:24:14 PM] <Evie> It is, Bee. It's quite lovely.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:24:15 PM] <Shiral> Unless the wearer is feeling particularly penitent. =o)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:24:37 PM] <jemler> oh come on, live daqngerously! make your long woolen underwear out of steel weel! :)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:24:49 PM] <jemler> steel wool, sorry
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:25:01 PM] <DesertRose> It's this: http://www.fabrics-store.com/first.php?goto=big_fabric&menu=f&menu=f&fabric_id=103
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:25:04 PM] <Evie> It's a similar weight to the linen in my Camberian robes, I think, and that outfit is ridiculously comfortable to wear.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:25:22 PM] <Shiral> When are you going to start making miniature chain mail, Evie? =o) Alaric doesn't feel complete without it, after all!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:25:28 PM] <Evie> Ooh, I see we shop at the same place
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:25:32 PM] <DesertRose> Yes. :D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:25:47 PM] <DesertRose> Every SCA seamstress's favorite website. :D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:25:51 PM] <Evie> LOL! DD offered to make him some chain mail, since she's made chain mail jewelry before, but she's dropped the ball
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:26:21 PM] <Shiral> Seeing how tiny the rings would have to be, I don't blame her!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:26:37 PM] <Evie> We have the rings already. Just haven't worked on it yet
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:26:42 PM] <DesertRose> BRB
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:26:48 PM] <Evie> they're jewelry jump rings
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:27:13 PM] <Evie> Kelson has some silver knit fabric "chain mail". They may need to settle for that.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:27:43 PM] <Shiral> I don't imagine they get into many knife fights, so it's probably fine for Little Deryni
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:28:00 PM] <Evie> or if I can remember how to knit, I could try knitting some fine silver cord into armor, but I haven't tried knitting and purling since I was 10
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:28:04 PM] <Jerusha> I'm imagining "little" Richenda helping "little" Alaric off with his mail as she did in KKB
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:28:07 PM] <Evie> and never did learn how to cast off properly
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:28:28 PM] <Evie> LOL! I do have plans on making a four poster bed, Jerusha. We could still get that scene. :D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:28:34 PM] <Tieg> I'd love some chain mail, but I'd settle for some nice, different Deryni patches for jackets and luggage
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:28:49 PM] <Evie> that's why I want to go to Hobby Lobby and get some more of the nice scalloped wood trim
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:28:54 PM] <the_Bee> me neither, Evie. My mom tried to teach me how to knit, but she always did the casting off for me, so I never learned.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:28:54 PM] <Evie> I want it on the bed canopy
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:28:59 PM] <Shiral> Wow, now you're doing furniture. Next you know, I'll have to build a tiny Coroth Castle
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:29:14 PM] <Evie> You could embroider some, Tieg, or use fabric paints
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:29:15 PM] <Jerusha> Yes!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:29:30 PM] <Tieg> like the miniature Hogwarts Castle
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:29:31 PM] <Evie> I wouldn't complain about you building a Coroth Castle, Shiral. ;-)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:29:47 PM] <Shiral> You might not, But I might! =o)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:30:04 PM] <KK> A canopy bed would be cool.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:30:07 PM] <Jerusha> And the green tower
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:30:09 PM] <Shiral> It's hard enough to know how to store a small Hagios Iob!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:30:11 PM] <Evie> I've got the first pieces of a bench cut out, but DH has the wood glue and stain at his mom's house and hasn't brought it back home to me yet, so that project is on hold until I get my materials.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:30:22 PM] <Tieg> I don't have the skill for embroidery, but with a good pattern, we could make some fancy patches for not much money, if so inclined
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:30:51 PM] <Tieg> I'd love to see pictures when you're done Evie
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:31:03 PM] <Evie> In that case, you could try a Healer's Badge. That would be a simple design.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:31:07 PM] <the_Bee> Did Ann Dupuis (Ghostgames) actually make a scale-model Rhemuth Castle, or just draw the plans on paper?
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:31:16 PM] <Audrey> We were talking about cross stitch earlier, if somebody drew a good pattern
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:31:20 PM] <Shiral> Just made a floor plan, I think
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:31:24 PM] <cynicalmedic> I could try something on my silk screen machine
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:31:29 PM] <Evie> I can show you some photos of the pieces, Tieg, but they're not assembled yet, and I haven't cut out the legs yet.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:31:47 PM] <Evie> I love the blueprints of the castle and the city map
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:32:05 PM] <Tieg> If anyone ever gets serious about patches, I could get the name of the company that makes some for a Firefly fan-based prop group, fireflyprops.net
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:32:11 PM] <Evie> I've used both quite a bit. I have them stored in Scrivener now, along with the Kingdom map
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:32:18 PM] * bynw notes that everyone seems to be looking at the deryni action figures post on RC
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:32:58 PM] <Evie> http://www.flickr.com/photos/9573389@N08/7992813077/ There's the top of the bench partly assembled just to show what it will look like when it's glued together
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:33:03 PM] <Shiral> There's no floor plan for Coroth, so I really don't know the layout
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:33:34 PM] <Tieg> looks like a fun project Evie
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:33:40 PM] <Evie> I'm thinking of going with a dark brown wood stain and then gold paint on the scalloped edges. Was thinking of crimson and gold, but if it's more generic, it can be used in dioramas meant to represent Coroth, Duncan's study, etc.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:34:04 PM] <Tieg> I forgot about the Kingdom map, I wonder if they're still available
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:34:07 PM] <Evie> But I want more of that edging for the canopy of the bed as well.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:34:40 PM] <Evie> I got mine on eBay, Tieg. The poster map, that is
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:34:55 PM] <jemler> where do you get them?
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:35:11 PM] <Evie> Though I actually find the map from the RPG book more usable, since I've scanned it and can zoom in to see things in greater detail on my computer screen.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:35:28 PM] <Evie> eBay has the map sometimes. Also Amazon.com
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:35:37 PM] <KK> Ann is busy fighting cancer right now, so I don't know whether she's doing anything with the Deryni material. E-bay is probably a good place to start looking.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:35:41 PM] <Evie> or just do a Google search for "Eleven Kingdoms Map"
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:35:43 PM] <Jerusha> I got mine on eBay
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:35:48 PM] <Tieg> it's on Amazon for $18 shipped by Amazon
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:35:58 PM] <Shiral> It's kind of like "Instant Castle" KK can put the rooms wherever she needs them. =o)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:35:58 PM] <Shiral> I think so, try Amazon, Tieg
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:36:09 PM] <the_Bee> Yes, I've been following Ann a bit on Facebook.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:36:21 PM] <Shiral> http://www.amazon.com/The-Eleven-Kingdoms-Deryni-World/dp/1887154140/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1348446959&sr=8-1&keywords=Map+of+11+Kingdoms
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:36:25 PM] <Shiral> Ann has cancer?
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:36:43 PM] <the_Bee> Yes. She's been talking about it on Facebook.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:36:54 PM] <Shiral> I'm not on Facebook, which explains that
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:36:59 PM] <the_Bee> The last news I read was good.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:37:13 PM] <KK> I framed one of my copies and put it on the back of the door right beside my desk. Very useful, though I still have my original, drawn on posterboard, and use it just as much if not more..
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:37:21 PM] <Evie> Holy Moly...you can get it new for $18 or used for $124.09? What the flying Fragonard?! Is it gold plated? :D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:38:07 PM] <Evie> Because, mind, I love my map, but unless KK hand drew it herself, or better yet, wove it into a tapestry, I think $125 for a poster might be just a tad steep. :D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:38:07 PM] <Shiral> I'd go for "new" in that case
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:38:24 PM] <KK> I find that hard to believe--though I know that several hardback copies of the Codex have sole for well into the mid-hundreds. Some folk sell them to help fund tuition.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:38:35 PM] <DesertRose> When the heck does KK have time to weave tapestry, LOL?
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:38:50 PM] <KK> Not lately, that's for sure.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:39:21 PM] <Tieg> I bought one of those Codex off eBay a few years back. What can I say, I'm crazy for Deryni ;-)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:39:37 PM] <Evie> I just had a mental picture of the Mini-Deryni wearing blue jeans and t-shirts, sitting around a modern-day study in front of a computer, munching on pizza, with that map on the wall behind them. :D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:39:39 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12that's why we're here
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:40:09 PM] <KK> That would be me, without the pizza.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:40:19 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12PIZZA!!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:40:23 PM] <Shiral> I joked that I would be buried with my HC Codex
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:40:25 PM] <DesertRose> Aw, shucks, no pizza? :)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:40:38 PM] <Tieg> I never looked through the deluxe Codex books, but I'm proud it's sitting on my shelf next to the trade edition. I think of it as a holy relic
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:41:02 PM] <DesertRose> If I had a hardback Codex, it would be treated with great care, to be sure.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:41:10 PM] <DesertRose> Just like my lovely 50th anniversary edition of LOTR.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:41:26 PM] <jemler> someone sold a first edition codex on ebay for $3000.00!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:41:27 PM] <Evie> Hm. There's a Harley-Davidson Ken out there. I could find his outfit on eBay and dress Alaric up like in that dream I had. ;-)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:41:27 PM] <Tieg> I have one of those too, signed by illustrator Alan Lee
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:41:30 PM] <KK> I have a printout, one-sided, that's been hole-punched for a looseleaf cover. Sits on the shelf just ahove my desk, and is studded with post-it notes and flags.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:41:40 PM] <Tieg> Wow, did I get a good deal then
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:41:56 PM] <Shiral> Considering the prices the limited ed. sold for, I've never regretted buying a copy for a mere $50.00 =o)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:42:14 PM] <DesertRose> My trade paperback Codex is full of papers and things related to this 1366 fanfic. :)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:42:28 PM] <DesertRose> That will, by god, eventually get written. :D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:42:40 PM] <Evie> And I will be watching and waiting, DR. ;-)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:42:43 PM] <Jerusha> We look forward to it, DR!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:42:45 PM] <DesertRose> I know. :)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:42:54 PM] <Shiral> For a while, I had a "later era" Deryni fanfic kicking around in my head, but nothing has happened with it
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:42:58 PM] <cynicalmedic> My copy is right here, on my desk - under my notes for the Doe Network
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:43:08 PM] <DesertRose> Festil and I were on Skype last night fussing about the next Archbishop of Valoret.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:43:17 PM] <Evie> I had a 15th C. Haldane dream once, and jotted down some notes, but it didn't go anywhere
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:43:21 PM] <Shiral> Good guy or bad guy, DR?
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:43:25 PM] <DesertRose> Good guy.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:43:43 PM] <DesertRose> Politically savvy, moderate, very diplomatic.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:44:11 PM] <DesertRose> He has to be for certain story elements to work. :)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:44:12 PM] <Shiral> I thought King Kelson II might be a lout while a prince, but who proved to be a good king, once he was tested
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:44:50 PM] <Shiral> Write, woman, Write!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:44:51 PM] <DesertRose> I've got an Ifor Haldane III on the throne right now.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:45:18 PM] <cynicalmedic> I've given up on the one I was working on
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:45:18 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12:D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:45:27 PM] <Evie> I need to get back to one of the two stories I have half written. Sigh.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:45:41 PM] <DesertRose> I'm actually, between chatting, working on getting the story situated in Scrivener, and then I will actually write.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:46:20 PM] <Evie> My "scenes" keep growing into two or three scenes each.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:46:31 PM] <Jerusha> This is bad?
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:46:32 PM] <Evie> I figured I'd be done by now, but it's the story that keeps mutating and growing on me
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:46:56 PM] <the_Bee> "The Neverending Story"
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:47:20 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12:D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:47:37 PM] <Shiral> Characters keep wanting to be in control?
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:47:41 PM] <jemler> you mean "The everchanging story" don't you?
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:48:00 PM] <Evie> She's very talkative when she gets going. But at the moment I can't get her to talk at all.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:48:16 PM] <the_Bee> no, I think the movie and book I saw was Neverending.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:48:24 PM] <jemler> you got a woman to shut up!? call Ripley's!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:48:36 PM] <cynicalmedic> Jemler!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:48:41 PM] * jemler ducks
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:48:48 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12JEMLER!!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:48:49 PM] <Evie> Are you kidding, Shiral? My characters stay in control! They tell me what to write, what to sew for their plastic selves, what furnishings they want, etc. They're a bossy lot. :D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:48:51 PM] * the_Bee flails Jemler with a giant squid.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:48:53 PM] * Shiral swats Jemler with a squid
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:48:57 PM] <Shiral> LOL
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:48:57 PM] <Evie> Evie loads up a catapult to lob a basket of sardines at jemler's head
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:49:05 PM] <cynicalmedic> That calls for a trebuchet full of blue crabs!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:49:09 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12make it a kraken
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:49:10 PM] <Audrey> I think Jemler forgot how many women are in this chat
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:49:11 PM] <DesertRose> jemler!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:49:17 PM] <jemler> lol
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:49:27 PM] * DesertRose throws a frozen squid at jemler.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:49:29 PM] <Evie> I have a plastic kraken; will that work?
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:49:34 PM] <KK> Jemler, I think you're in trouble now!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:49:34 PM] <bynw> jemler: you are in a chat full of mostly ladies ... watch your tongue or you may loose it
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:49:38 PM] * Shiral picks up an octopus instead and smacks Jemler with it
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:49:52 PM] <cynicalmedic> I have a stuffed Cthulu - how about that?
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:49:53 PM] <DesertRose> bynw is a smart man. :D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:50:00 PM] * bynw has one of those too
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:50:20 PM] <KK> The stuffed Cthulu sounds formidable.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:50:23 PM] <jemler> i was good last week, i had to make up for it! :)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:50:26 PM] <bynw> my brother has a stuffed alien facehugger
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:50:38 PM] <KK> That's awesome!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:50:47 PM] <cynicalmedic> ThinkGeek is so much fun - although my sister was peeved when I bought my niece one of the guitar shirts
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:50:48 PM] <DesertRose> I've seen knitting and crochet patterns for Cthulhu.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:50:50 PM] <Evie> If by formidable you mean adorably cuddly, then yeah, stuffed Cthulhu is formidable. ;-)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:50:57 PM] <KK> Not that I'd want to have one.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:51:12 PM] <KK> Maybe a stuffed Cthulu.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:51:20 PM] <Shiral> Aw, KK there goes your birthday surprise!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:51:29 PM] <KK> But I'd be afraid it would eat my other stuffed critters when I wasn't looking.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:51:31 PM] <Evie> I love ThinkGeek
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:51:47 PM] <DesertRose> No, it would just EAT THEIR SOULS!!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:51:54 PM] <Evie> You want a stuffed Cthulhu with a Healer's badge, KK. Imagine the wrongness of that. :D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:52:05 PM] <DesertRose> Their bodies, eh, not so much. ;P
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:52:05 PM] <KK> Oh, great. Soulless critters!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:52:08 PM] <cynicalmedic> I also have a toy cold germ - it sneezes and coughs when you throw it
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:52:16 PM] <KK> Very wrong.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:52:19 PM] <Shiral> Zombie Critters!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:52:25 PM] <KK> That's cool, CM.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:52:41 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12:D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:52:44 PM] <DesertRose> My mother used to have a stuffed Y2K bug that made a shattering noise if you threw or dropped it.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:52:49 PM] <KK> I just have a Cam-Bear.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:53:13 PM] <KK> And a kilted tiger.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:53:16 PM] <DesertRose> It sat on her computer at work until she retired. I'm not sure what she did with it since she's retired.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:53:17 PM] <Evie> there are all sorts of stuffed germs out there. I saw some at DragonCon even'
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:53:30 PM] <bynw> Evie: that is so wrong
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:53:33 PM] <Shiral> A tiger in a kilt?
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:53:43 PM] <KK> Who could get close enough to look, at Dragoncon. It got really crowded in there!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:53:51 PM] <DesertRose> DD used to have a teddy bear in an Air Force uniform.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:54:06 PM] <KK> It's a doll-shaped tiger, and he wears a kilt very nicely.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:54:17 PM] <cynicalmedic> It sounds cute.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:54:22 PM] <Evie> Yeah, the dealer rooms are pretty crowded, especially in the lowest floor one. The two in the Exhibition Halls aren't much better, but at least the aisles are wider.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:54:34 PM] * Shiral is trying to wrap her head around theimage...
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:54:46 PM] <cynicalmedic> I'm not sure what to expect at Darkover
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:55:09 PM] <Shiral> Less than at Dragoncon, but they have nice things
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:55:18 PM] <KK> It's pretty tame. But some of the dealers have good stuff. It's all set up out in the lobby/atrium--lots of space.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:55:23 PM] <Evie> I forgot to take LEGO Duncan to the Exhibition Hall with the miniature buildings and castle towers this year. I meant to take more photos. They were selling a Norman church.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:55:43 PM] <KK> I don't think I ever got to that room.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:56:30 PM] <Evie> DragonCon has the dealer's room in the basement and the Exhibition Halls in the floor above, across the lobby area from each other. It was in one of those halls.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:56:42 PM] * jemler raises his head, and looks around cautiously
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:56:57 PM] * Shiral throws a goldfish, just as a warning shot
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:57:07 PM] <Evie> the difference, I think, is that dealers in the Dealer's room aren't necessarily the makers of the products they sell, but I think the vendors in the Exhibition Halls actually make their merchandise
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:57:43 PM] <Evie> so that's where you find the really good craftsmanship instead of the mass-produced stuff
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:58:25 PM] <Evie> Although there's a bit of cross-over. The people with the gaming dice are in the Exhibition Hall, for instance, even though I'm pretty sure they don't make those dice.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:58:43 PM] <cynicalmedic> I like handmade things - I bought a nice piece of jewelry at the Renaissance Festival yesterday
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [08:59:40 PM] <Evie> I love handmade jewelry, but have had to pretty much stop buying it unless I find a piece I really adore, because I've got so much already, I would need to weed through what I've got and get rid of some before I can justify getting more.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:00:18 PM] <cynicalmedic> Have you ever seen Rob Piland's pieces? He's the only one I buy from www.repiland.com
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:00:36 PM] <Tieg> That's what I'm missing, a good Deryni necklace
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:00:52 PM] <Shiral> I still have a bronze and garnet bracelet I bought at Westercon back in '98.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:00:53 PM] <Evie> Ooh, no, but I'll definitely give this website a look later!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:00:54 PM] <Tieg> Okay, someone get busy and make a necklace and patches! :-)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:00:57 PM] <Jerusha> The Furstana emeralds would do.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:00:59 PM] <Shiral> I just spotted it and HAD to have it
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:01:36 PM] <Shiral> They had really great well-made stuff at that booth, but sadly, Dragonspawn is no longer around
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:01:36 PM] <cynicalmedic> I just bought the Blackthorn tree of life, and the claddagh with the swans instead of hands
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:01:57 PM] <the_Bee> I bought a btterfly pin at Darkover, but I gave it to my sister-in-law for Christmas.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:02:00 PM] <Evie> My littles need jewelry
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:02:08 PM] <Tieg> badalijewelry.com makes top-quality items here in Utah. Among many many styles, they also have been the official producer of the One Ring
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:02:15 PM] <Tieg> And they're always at DragonCon too
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:02:15 PM] <Evie> I still have to make rings for Kelson and Alaric
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:02:30 PM] <Evie> and I think Denis's ring fell off somewhere
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:02:58 PM] <Evie> I should have glued his ring on when I had the chance. If I find it again, I will.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:03:08 PM] <Shiral> The other ladies must be coveting Araxie's earrings, Evie. =o)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:03:52 PM] <Evie> Yeah. I can't decide if I want to keep those or replace them with some not made from plastic. But to remove them, I'd have to cut them off from the inside, I think.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:03:53 PM] <jemler> i was just watching Shogun on tv, and I think Damien Thomas (Father Alvito) would have made a good Arilan (of course the n=movie is now 30 yo.)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:04:00 PM] <Evie> and I don't like removing heads if I don't have to
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:04:14 PM] <Tieg> Thanks for the link CM, nice jewelry
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:04:15 PM] <jemler> neither does kelson
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:04:16 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12i have Shogun on DVD
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:04:30 PM] <jemler> me too, but it was on, so...
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:04:37 PM] <Tieg> I saw it on TV back in the day
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:05:03 PM] <KK> Yike, I've gotta get back to work. Alaric is just getting a chewing out from Se for trying to use his powers in public, at Brion's behest, when he doesn't yet have the training or the poiwer for it.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:05:08 PM] <cynicalmedic> You're welcome, Tieg. I have been buying from him for years
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:05:10 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12japanese restaurants didn't do much business while it was on
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:05:15 PM] <DesertRose> Oh dear, poor Alaric.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:05:20 PM] <Evie> Ooh! I want to read that scene, KK! :D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:05:24 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, KK, see you later!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:05:35 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12nite KK

[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:05:39 PM] <Evie> so hurry up and finish so I can read the book! :D

[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:05:44 PM] <the_Bee> nighters, KK. thanks for coming and have a good week.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:05:45 PM] <cynicalmedic> Good night KK! Have a good week!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:05:55 PM] <KK> Good night, all.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:05:55 PM] <DesertRose> Have a great week, KK. Happy writing! :D
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:06:00 PM] <Evie> and I'm glad we'll be seeing Se again
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:06:08 PM] <Audrey> Good night!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:06:11 PM] <Evie> speaking of interesting men in cassocks
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:06:13 PM] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves good night, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:06:15 PM] <DesertRose> Night!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:06:16 PM] <Jerusha> Night KK!
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:06:17 PM] <Evie> *grumble*
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:06:19 PM] <Evie> :-)
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:06:24 PM] <Evie> Goodnight
[Sunday, September 23, 2012] [09:06:30 PM] 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.)
