18:07 -!- KK [~kkurtz@OWIRCN-49430054.va.comcast.net] has joined #deryni_destinations
18:07 < derynifanatic64> hi kk
18:07 < the_Bee> HI KK
18:07 < jemler> hi kk
18:07 < imladris> Welcome KK
18:07 < Alkari> Hello KK
18:07 < jemler> hope you had a happy birthday!
18:07 < cynicalmedic> Hi KK
18:07 < imladris> Noelle is an [orange] green iguana.
18:07 < Alkari> Lots of yummy cake
18:08 < KK> Hello, folks.
18:08 < the_Bee> How was the new restaurant, KK?
18:08 < Alkari> There are absolutely NO calories in any food eaten on your birthday, you know
18:08 < KK> It was good.  Excellent creme brulee.
18:08 < derynifanatic64> birthdays are always calorie free
18:09 < the_Bee> What was your entree?
18:09 <~bynw> hiyas KK
18:09 < imladris> Is that like the halloween fun sizes have only one tenth the calories of a regular bar?
18:09 < imladris> loves creme brulee...
18:09 < KK> Mussels were yummy.  Porl chop was fattier than my tummy liked, but overall, it was good.  We''l go back, I'm sure.
18:09 < imladris> and Grand Marnier Souffle
18:09 < the_Bee> Is it one of a kind or part of a chain?
18:10 < KK> Nope. one of a kind.  Historic ouse now run as a B&B.
18:10 < KK> house
18:10 < jemler> so, how do you like turning 35?
18:10 < derynifanatic64> :D
18:10 < KK> Just fine.  : )
18:11 -!- Jerusha [Mibbit@OWIRCN-af1c4cc6.dsl.bell.ca] has joined #deryni_destinations
18:11 < imladris> And a stray "King" didn't find you like on your first one.
18:11 < the_Bee> Hi Jerusha
18:12 < cynicalmedic> Hi Jerusha
18:12 < imladris> greetings Jerusha
18:12 < jemler> hi jerusha
18:12 < Jerusha> Hi Everyone!
18:12 < derynifanatic64> hi jerusha
18:12 < KK> It was rainy that night, with a gully-washer starting right after we made it inside, so we got rain pounding on the windows.  But nothing like the time we were dining at a restaurant on D.C.  and the wind blew out a window up on the mezzanine!
18:12 < derynifanatic64> ouch
18:12 < the_Bee> Now That's weather!
18:12 < KK> Yep.
18:13 < KK> Fortunately, no one was hurt by the flying glass.
18:13 <~bynw> thats good
18:13 < derynifanatic64> whew
18:13 < jemler> are you missing Holyoke yet?
18:13 < the_Bee> Imladris: King?
18:13 < imladris> KK, you need to check out My dragons in fur kids... that we talked about last week. :)
18:13 < the_Bee> Yes, yhey're cuties.
18:13 < Jerusha> I love the picture with the teddy bear
18:13 < imladris> That is the Hurricane that greeted KK on her first BD.
18:14 < cynicalmedic> I will have to take a look, too
18:14 < KK> Scott sent me beautiful flowers, and sent flowers to my mom, too, with thanks for having me.  She said she cried for about half an hour.  It was very sweet for him to do.
18:14 < derynifanatic64> awww
18:14 < imladris> that was sweet.
18:14 < Jerusha> Lovely
18:14 < derynifanatic64> one reason why you married him
18:14 < cynicalmedic> How lovely
18:14 < KK> Nope, they didn't yet name hurricanes when I was born.
18:14 < KK> Yep. 
18:14 < imladris> check with NOAA.....
18:14 < Alkari> Scott is wonderful
18:14 < the_Bee> And they used only girls' names.
18:15 < imladris> was before the convention of girls names.
18:15 < Jerusha> I always thought that was appropriate
18:15 < KK> No, have always used male and female names, so far as I know.
18:15 < jemler> my cousin got married, and her husband shipped to iraq (gulf war 1), just before valentine's day. so i sent her flowers for valentines.
18:15 < imladris> not in the sixties.. was females.
18:15 <~bynw> scott is a great guy
18:15 < jemler> hi bynw
18:15 < cynicalmedic> That was nice, Jemler
18:15 < the_Bee> When I was young it was all girls' name.  I foget when the aded boys'
18:16 < imladris> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_King
18:16 < the_Bee> My first Hurricane was Carol-same as my mom.
18:17 < imladris> My first I remember was Cleo, but was alive for Donna.
18:18 < the_Bee> "KIng" was 1926.  KK's not THAT old.
18:18 < KK> LOL, I was alreay On Planet by the time King came along, inladris.,
18:18 < KK> King was 1950, according to what I just looked at.
18:18 < the_Bee> oh, right. 1950.
18:18 < derynifanatic64> oops
18:19 < imladris> oops.. yeah that is more than 35....
18:19 < imladris> ;-)
18:19 < cynicalmedic> Mine was Agnes, but I have been in several since then. I heard somewhere that the weather service was considering names for the mega snowstorms like we had 2 years ago
18:19 < the_Bee> Caron blew down our catalpa tree.   Dad propped ir up, the n/Edna blew it down the other way.
18:20 < the_Bee> Carol.
18:20 < derynifanatic64> orlando had 3 hurricanes in 2004
18:20 < imladris> they all crossed at lake wales....
18:21 < the_Bee> Was it Isaac that hit the Northeast?
18:21 < imladris> 2004 Florida got a new nickname.... The Blue Tarp State.
18:21 < cynicalmedic> yes
18:21 <~bynw> doesn't look like KK's had a name when she was born just the Cuba-Florida hurricane
18:21 < KK> I heard that about snowstorms too, CM.
18:21 < derynifanatic64> charlie blew through real fast; frances and jeanne took their sweet time going through
18:21 < cynicalmedic> I know what I would call them, but it isn't nice
18:22 < KK> But I do like snow.  Just not too much at once.
18:22 < Jerusha> We call snowstorms a variety of names, as we dig out...:)
18:22 < the_Bee> What year was Connie?  We were at the cottage in Vermont when that hit.
18:22 <~bynw> snow is overrated
18:22 < imladris> After Francis, my front yard was covered in shingles, but fortunately.... they were not mine.
18:22 < derynifanatic64> all not appropriate for polite society
18:23 < Jerusha> Exactly!
18:23 < cynicalmedic> A little snow is fine, but  30 plus inches is too much
18:23 < the_Bee> So, KK, what have Alaric and Bryon been up to?
18:23 < KK> That is a bit excessive.
18:23 < Jerusha> Normal, for us
18:24 < KK> Se has just paid Alaric a visit in secret, and has taught him about Ward Cubes.  He's also giving him instruction in Truth-Reacing.
18:24 < Alkari> Yay!
18:24 < the_Bee> We had an earthquake th othe day.  I didn't even notice.
18:25 < Alkari> I want to see a lot more of Se.  I hope he is not going to be one of those people whom you kill off, KK 
18:25 < KK> I heard there'd been one up your way, Bee.
18:25 < cynicalmedic> Ah, the mysterious Sir Se - I like that character, very much
18:25 < the_Bee> So Now Alaric can tell when people are lying.
18:25 < Jerusha> I know it won't be in CM3, KK, but might Se show up in secret for Alaric's knighting?
18:26 < KK> I can't have him teach Alaric too much.  After all, we know that he hasn't had that much formal training, by the time we first meet him in DR and following.
18:26 < the_Bee> He Had Vera and Se.
18:26 < jemler>  wonder where dr and evie are tonight.
18:26 < Alkari> And does Se know Azim?  or reather, vice versa?
18:26 < KK> Vera wasn't taught a lot, either.
18:27 < Jerusha> No, she would have been kept mostly in the dark about her heritage
18:27 < KK> Can't say.  If Azim is in the order right now, he's very junior, and Se has been around a while.
18:27 < Jerusha> So maybe Se was Azim's mentor?
18:27 < the_Bee> I invited Mistyk to join us.  We've been having a Marathon "Word with Friends" marathon. AKA SCRabble.
18:27 < Alkari> Interesting though in the context of KK's Bride, whether the two knew each other
18:28 < imladris> Bee, got to great scrabble words for you......
18:28 < jemler> i still think Sir Se is the man Kelson and Dhugal met on the beach.
18:28 < imladris> Okapi, and Quagga.
18:28 < imladris> er two
18:28 < the_Bee> I could use some .  I'm on a losing streak.
18:28 < jemler> quagga is an antelope
18:28 < imladris> zebra subspecies. extinct.
18:29 < derynifanatic64> quagga an extinct zebra
18:29 < imladris> Okapi only living relative of the Giraffe.
18:29 < KK> Texas Mistyk?
18:29 < the_Bee> I' ve come across some words I've never heard of.  I try a combo and it works.
18:29 < Alkari> and a quokka is a nice little Australian animal  :)
18:29 < jemler> try qi
18:29 -!- Irssi: #deryni_destinations: Total of 12 nicks [2 ops, 0 halfops, 1 voices, 9 normal]
18:30 < the_Bee> Qi is a favorie. also JO and Za
18:30 < Alkari> www.furry.org.au/kangaroos/misc/quokka.jpg
18:30 < Alkari> http://www.furry.org.au/kangaroos/misc/quokka.jpg
18:31 < Jerusha> Cute!
18:31 < KK> Bee, is our Texas Mistyk, from several years ago?
18:32 < the_Bee> Yes. AKA Rita Caywood.
18:32 <~bynw> KK i keep trying to get that Mistyk (Rita) to come back to chat ...
18:32 < jemler> big houston fan
18:32 < KK> Cool!  How's she doing?  Her son must be about grown by now.
18:32 < the_Bee> I invited her tonight.
18:32 < the_Bee> HHe's a teen now.
18:33 < KK> OK, just an older teen than he was, then.
18:33 < the_Bee> We've been playing online scrabble for over a month.
18:33 < KK> What's she doing?  I know she'd retired from the Air Force.
18:33 < the_Bee> She's going to college.  Master's degree, I think.  Psychology.
18:35 < KK> That's great.  Good on her!  Please tell her I said Hi.
18:35 < the_Bee> She's on FAcebook.
18:35  * bynw wishes that many of the old regulars would come back for a visit
18:36 < the_Bee> I wish we still had the !seen feature.
18:36 < imladris> I think I am only person on planet not to use face book.
18:36 < KK> Amen, Bynw.
18:36 <~bynw> imladris: no there are others too
18:36 < Jerusha> No, Imladris, you are not the only one!
18:36 < the_Bee> N o, Imladris, Shiral doesn't either.
18:36 < derynifanatic64> i dont use facebook, though i do have an account
18:36 < cynicalmedic> I resisted it for a long time, but my sister finally convinced me to try it/
18:37 <~bynw> i would get off of it myself if i didn't have a reconnection there to a lot of old friends
18:37 < the_Bee> Most of my FB friends are Deryni fans or relatives.
18:37 < cynicalmedic> I mostly use it to keep in touch with some old friends I don't see otherwise
18:37 < imladris> yeah, that is probabably what I will do.
18:37 < KK> Same here, but I'm scared of it.  So intrusive.
18:38 < Jerusha> I honestly don't have enough time for it
18:38 < imladris> too many people that I really DON'T want to be in contact with....
18:38 < the_Bee> I put very little personal info on Facebook. 
18:38 -!- Sarah_brb is now known as Sarah
18:38 < imladris> not the least of which are some former patients.
18:38 <~bynw> my wife stays off of it because its too connecting
18:38 <~bynw> hi Sarah
18:38 < cynicalmedic> I wipe all the tags on the pictures and things I post - and my friends list is rather restrictive
18:38 < the_Bee> My picture is my cat and her friend.
18:39 < the_Bee> WB SArah
18:39 < cynicalmedic> Hi Sarah
18:39 < Jerusha> Hi Sarah
18:39 < Sarah> hello again everyone
18:39 < KK> Hi, Sarah.
18:39 < the_Bee> How are the other kittens--the survivors?
18:40 < Sarah> How are you, KK?
18:40 < derynifanatic64> hi sarah
18:40 < KK> I'm good.  What kittens?
18:40 < Sarah> Everyone is good- its just getting dark so everybody is out crunching in the leaves.
18:40 < Sarah> I lost a kitten last night so the_Bee was asking about the billion others I have
18:41 < Sarah> hi derynifanatic64
18:41 < KK> Lost as in lost, or lost as in died?
18:41 < Sarah> died
18:41 < derynifanatic64> awww
18:41 < Jerusha> Bummer
18:41 < Sarah> Much.
18:41 < KK> How sad.  What happened?
18:42 < Sarah> Too cold, and I couldn't put any weight on her so the cold got to her.
18:42 < KK> Was she outside?
18:42 < Sarah> Was a rescue on me and my mother-in-law's part.
18:42 < KK> Ah.
18:42 < Jerusha> Where are you that it was cold, Sarah?
18:42 < Sarah> Yes, but they have a box with a thick blanket in it and they normally cuddle so yeah... things happen
18:43 < Sarah> I'm in Alabama, USA. And it was pretty darn cold last night for an animal with ZERO extra muscle or fat.
18:43 < jemler> based on my experience, a dialysis clinic!
18:43 < KK> It is starting to get pretty cold at night.
18:44 <~bynw> sorry to hear you lost a kitten Sarah :(
18:44 < the_Bee> Southern mountains can get really cold, I hear.
18:44 < Sarah> Indeed. My girl kitty, Honey, hasn't grown back in her tummy fuzz from getting altered, and thanks, bynw. kitty's in a beeter place.
18:45 < Sarah> the_Bee: INDEED.
18:45 < imladris> <wicked grin> well it did get down to the upper sixties last night.....
