18:07 -!- KK [~kkurtz@OWIRCN-49430054.va.comcast.net] has joined #deryni_destinations
18:07 < Alkari> Late January and February can get very hot and humid in Sydney
18:07 < the_Bee> Hi KK
18:07 < Pol> Hi KK,
18:07 < jemler> hi kk
18:07 < Shiral> Hello KK
18:07 < Alkari> Welcome KK
18:07 <~bynw> and i get cold rain with a little bit of sleet today ... you guys get the nice weather
18:07 <~bynw> hiyas KK
18:07 < Pol> I was just about to wonder aloud if you were busy writing today
18:08 < KK> I was, but I'm here now.  Hello, all.
18:08 < the_Bee> any news, KK?
18:08 <~bynw> Evie says "Hi" ... she is entertaining out of town guests and can't make it tonight
18:08 < jemler> evie says hi, kk
18:08 < KK> Ah, hope she's having fun.
18:08 < Pol> KK, hope your writing was going better than mine. I gave up and went for a bike ride to clear my head.
18:09 < Pol> Oh, who keeps up the "namesake" page? My friend said it's okay to add her son Kelson to the list
18:09 < KK> Mine's going ok.  But I did take off a couple of hours yesterday to take my mom to the local Books-a-Million, where she bought me 4!
18:09 < Alkari> LOL.   I recommend renovation painting!
18:09 -!- Jerusha [Mibbit@OWIRCN-e0b391d0.dsl.bell.ca] has joined #deryni_destinations
18:10 < jemler> 4 books for a million!
18:10 < the_Bee> hi Jerusha
18:10 < jemler> hi jerusha
18:10 < Shiral> Hi Jerusha
18:10 < Jerusha> Hi Everyone!
18:10 < Alkari> Right now I need more books in my place like I need a hole in the head
18:10 < Alkari> Hi Jerusha
18:10 < KK> Well, I got the new Namaah's Kiss for $3.00, and another book for 2.97.
18:10 <~bynw> hi Jerusha
18:10 < Shiral> So Are Alaric and Brion doing well, KK?
18:10 < Alkari> Oh, you read Jacqueline Carey books?
18:10 < Pol> I still go to bookstores (new and used) for the smell and feel, but my buying has all been e-based. I can carry more with me.
18:11 < Alkari> They are great fun - I got them all out of the library
18:11 < KK> Brion is anguishing over how his sister was seduced at 12th Night 1103.
18:11 < Shiral> That'll ruin your holidays, yup
18:11 < the_Bee> I'm a big fan of public libraries, except for KK books and Christmas gifts.
18:11 < Jerusha> Which sister was that, KK?  Xenia?
18:11 < KK> Yep.
18:12 <~bynw> Pol: See the PM i just sent you
18:12 < Alkari> Poor Xenia
18:12 < Pol> k
18:12 < KK> It has just occurred to Alaric that, if her seducer was Deryni, maybe he controlled her--which technically makes it rape.
18:12 < Alkari> Yes Bee - there are certain books you 'need' to own.
18:12 < Jerusha> I'm surprised Brion let him live (Xenia's seducer)
18:13 < Shiral> Not nice to do to a Haldane Princess
18:13 < Alkari> Does he?  Let the seducer live?
18:13 < the_Bee> or anyone else
18:13 < Shiral> Definitely, Bee
18:13 < Pol> Ooh, sounds like good reading
18:14 < KK> He's in a diplomatic delegation, so he's got immunity.  But he's already offered to marry her.  And Alaric isn't yet skilled enough to take on an adult Deryni with training.
18:14 < Jerusha> So he is Deryni?
18:14 < Alkari> 'Offered to marry her'- how nice   :(
18:14 < Shiral> Those pesky diplomatic passports!
18:14 < Alkari> Call in James Bond
18:15 < the_Bee> Did the guy love Xenia?
18:15 < Jerusha> Murdered, not spared :D
18:15 < Shiral> No martinis in the 12th century
18:15 < Alkari> Or Aston Martins
18:16 < KK> I think he probably wants to get her pregnant as quickly as possible, so that they'll have a potential Haldane heir in their hands.
18:16 < Shiral> And really, if you were worried about your sister's virtue, WOULD you call James Bond? =o) He's not exactly a monk
18:16 < Pol> lol
18:16 < Pol> good point
18:16 <~bynw> diplomatic immunity didn't help that Russian guy on Magnum PI at the end of the series :)
18:16 < Jerusha> Didn't Xenia die in chilbirth, according to the Codex?
18:17 < Shiral> So Brion ends up with a brother in law he wouldn't mind seeing dead?
18:17 < jemler> St. James Bond - He loved even his enemies, several times over!
18:18 < Alkari> Isn't Xenia the one you said thought that Alaric was rather nice?
18:18 < the_Bee> Xenia's not in my edition of the Codex. 
18:18 < Jerusha> I may be confused - it happens sometimes :)
18:18 < jemler> but the putz wouldn't give the time of day to Miss Moneypenny!
18:18 -!- derynifanatic64 [Mibbit@F8E647.C077AC.70929C.F62AA2] has joined #deryni_destinations
18:18 < jemler> hi df
18:18 < Shiral> I don't think she has an entry to herself
18:18 < derynifanatic64> hi all
18:18 < Jerusha> Hi DF
18:18 < Shiral> But you'd probably find her in Donal's entry
18:19 < KK> It's Silke who sort of likes Alaric.
18:19 < Shiral> Hi DF
18:19 < Jerusha> Then I wonder where I read that???
18:19 < the_Bee> Does Codex include anything later than KKB?
18:19 < the_Bee> Hi DF
18:19 < jemler> the names of Kelson kids are in there
18:19 < Shiral> And Silke ends up a Nun, as I recall....
18:19 < Jerusha> Yes
18:19 < Pol> They are?
18:19 < KK> Yes, but maybe this episode is at least partially responsible for her decision.
18:19 < the_Bee> Rob sort of invented Kelson's kids' names, didn't he?
18:19 < Pol> (re; Kelson's kids)
18:19 < Alkari> Codex has it under the entry for Donal Haldane
18:20 < Pol> Man, I have to buy the Code
18:20 < Pol> x
18:20 < Pol> ugh
18:20 < Alkari> Where it lists Donal's children
18:20 < KK> Silke and Xenia are Brion's sisters, not Kelson's.
18:20 < Jerusha> That could be it
18:20  * bynw is a proud owner of both copies of the Codex
18:20 < Alkari> Yes, I just checked it.
18:20 < Shiral> Keslon rather misses out on having Aunts
18:20 < Pol> yeah
18:21 < Alkari> Well, Silke is still alive, isn't she?
18:21 < Pol> but…didn't Jehana have siblings?
18:21 < Shiral> Kelson, that is. Sometimes my fingers do odd things
18:21 < jemler> at least 1 brother
18:21 < derynifanatic64> her brother is king of bremagne
18:21 < KK> Yes, Jehana has 2 sisters.
18:21 < Shiral> Yes, but she's off being Conventua;
18:21 < Shiral> Conventual. BAD rented finger day
18:21 < jemler> does Ryol know he is Deryni?
18:21 < Alkari> Silke sounded an interesting person, according to Codex
18:21 < Shiral> They're alive... but not really fixtures in his life
18:22 < Pol> he had Meraude
18:22 < KK> Brion is about to go off to Bremagne to meet the princesses, having received portraits of them as a 12th Night gift from King Meyric.
18:22 < Pol> she's an awesome aunt
18:22 < Alkari> Do we get to meet her too in CM3, KK?
18:22 < Jerusha> Did Jehana get on well with her sisters?
18:22 < Shiral> King Meyric is good at dropping expensive hints, I'd say!
18:22 < Shiral> True, she is Pol
18:22 < Pol> ooh, KK, you're teasing us
18:23 < KK> He cornered Brion at Letald's investiture and practically threw the girls at him.
18:23 < derynifanatic64> :D
18:23 < KK> With 3 daughters needing husbands, some fathers get desperate.
18:23 <~bynw> a good king would
18:23 < Shiral> Ah, the curse of being young, eligible and male
18:23 < Jerusha> I wouldn't know :D
18:24 < Pol> lol
18:24 < Pol> me neither
18:24 < derynifanatic64> i'm middle age, eligible, and male
18:24 < Shiral> "Marry at least one of them and I'll throw in the other two for free..."
18:24 < Alkari> lol
18:24 <~bynw> LOL Shiral
18:24 < Jerusha> Wow!
18:24  * bynw is middle age, not eligible and male
18:25 < Shiral> Yes, but do you have a palace and a title, DF? =o)
18:25 < Jerusha> But you have a really cute niece, DF64
18:25 < derynifanatic64> world's greatest uncle!!
18:25 < Alkari> We will worry when you start sending portraits of her around to eligible young men, DF
18:25 < derynifanatic64> officially--UNCLE MARK!!
18:26 < Alkari> with his phone full of niece pics ...
18:26 < Pol> I'm envious that you've all (mostly) met
18:26 < Jerusha> I'm sure she's not the least bit spoiled
18:26 < the_Bee> not all met in person
18:27 < Alkari> where did you get that idea Jerusha?!
18:27 < derynifanatic64> she'll be 3 in 2 months
18:27 < Jerusha> It came to me out of nowhere
18:27 < jemler> my niece had a son 3 months ago
18:27 < Pol> Our niece had a little girl 8 months ago. She's now at that fun, "bendy" stage
18:28 < Jerusha> KK, where is Jehana in the pecking order of the sisters?
18:28 < jemler> she's the most peckish! :)
18:28 < Pol> KK…general book question
18:28  * jemler ducks
18:29 < Pol> are all your books available as E's?
18:29 < Pol> e-books?
18:29 < Pol> sorry, slang
18:29 < derynifanatic64> LOL
18:29 < KK> She's the oldest.
18:29 < KK> Most of them are, I think.
18:30 < Pol> cool, thx
18:31 < Alkari> I think I will have to weaken eventually and get an e-book reader.
18:31 < Jerusha> They are very convenient
18:31 < Alkari> But I still like to curl up in bed with a read, live paper book!
18:31 < Pol> ack! but not Lammas Night
18:31 < Alkari> I mean, curling up with an e-book just isn't the same ...
18:31 < Pol> sigh
18:31 < derynifanatic64> my books are mostly US history
18:32 < Shiral> So Jehana's top of the Pecking Order, if she's a pecking sort of sister
18:32 < derynifanatic64> US civil war mainly
18:32 < Alkari> Of course Jehana is a pecking sister.
18:32 < Jerusha> Did Jehana's sister have the same type of slanted upbringing?
18:32 < Jerusha> sisters
18:33 < Jerusha> I'm collecting medieval history, DF
18:33  * Shiral thinks there should have been an Order of the Holy Pecking Sisters.... the nuns would have worn hen's combs as part of their habit.
18:33 < derynifanatic64> i have a collection of DVD's on ancient civilizations
18:33 < Jerusha> They made sure you got their point
18:34 < Jerusha> Wasn't the devil also known as "Old Scratch"?
18:35 < the_Bee> Yep
18:35 < Shiral> Crowing at dawn would have been a good way to annoy sinners
18:35 < Jerusha> And everybody else :)
18:35 < Jerusha> Can you imagine the hymns?
18:36 < Shiral> Old Nick wouldn't have minded doing that. =o)
18:36 < Shiral> Happy belated birthday Katherine BTW. And to Jerusha also
18:37 < Jerusha> Thanks, Shiral
18:38 < derynifanatic64> Cowboys 38--Eagles 23!!
18:38 < the_Bee> final score?
18:39 < derynifanatic64> yes
18:40 < the_Bee> I take it you're a Cowboys fan.
18:40 < derynifanatic64> forever
18:41 < Pol> Packers rule, Cowboys droooool
18:41 < Pol> :)
18:41 < Jerusha> Go Green Bay!!

18:41 < the_Bee> Go Pats and Celtics
18:41 < Pol> Uh oh, we scared Sarah away
18:42 < the_Bee> I root for the home team, whatever the event.
18:42 < Jerusha> Nothing wrong with that, Bee
18:42 -!- Sarah [Mibbit@971820.95A8FF.BEC195.0F4240] has joined #deryni_destinations
18:43 < derynifanatic64> wb sarah
18:43 < the_Bee> My nephew is a Boston fan, even though he grew up in Toronto.
18:43 < Shiral> Rehi Sarah
18:43 < the_Bee> rehi Sarah
18:43 < Jerusha> Rehi Sarah
18:43 < Sarah> Browser made a fubar when I tried to print something...
18:43 < Alkari> wb Sarah
18:43 < Sarah> rehi everyone
18:43 < derynifanatic64> bad browser
18:44 < Sarah> Thank you, Alkari, and derynifanatic64
18:47 < Shiral> We/'ve all gone mighty quiet
18:47  * the_Bee drops a pin.
18:48 < derynifanatic64> it's almost time for once upon a time
18:48 < the_Bee> 10 minutes
18:48 < Alkari> I was just wondering how I could ever catch up on that show
18:48 < Jerusha> Do you have it there?
18:48 < Alkari> Not sure what season we are in, out here in Oz
18:48 < derynifanatic64>  2
18:48 < Alkari> Oh yes, but not necessarily at the same time as USA.
18:49 < the_Bee> We're in Season 2 in the USA
18:49 < Alkari> HBO has recently done a deal so we get some of their really good shows within 24 hours of them airing in USA
18:49 < the_Bee> Are episodes available on-line?
18:49 < Alkari> So I won't be ten days behind on Game of Thrones in Season 3
18:49 < Alkari> Yes, but we cannot easily download from USA TV sources.
18:50 < Alkari> An e-guru can work it via a proxy site, but all the mega-media mogul arrangements prevent it.  GRRRR
18:50 < Alkari>  I fail to see why the TV execs cannot understand "global marketplace".
18:51 < Jerusha> That would make too much sense
18:51 < derynifanatic64> Season one is out on DVD for regions 1,2,4
18:51 < Alkari> I wouldn't even mind paying a small fee to download from UK, where they have to pay a TV licence for their 'free' TV
18:52 < Alkari> But no, we can't even do that.
18:52 < Alkari> Region 4 is us.
18:52 < derynifanatic64> region 4 came out 10-17-12
18:52 < Alkari> I believe that in France, it is illegal to sell a DVD player with a restricted region coding
18:52 < the_Bee> good for France
18:52 < KK> Can't even watch out of area DVDs on a computer.  They've got the markets locked down.
18:52 < Alkari> Exactly
18:53 < KK> Well, I've gotta go.  I want to get dinner going before Once Upon a TIme starts.  See you guys next week.
18:53 < Alkari> I am sorry, but I am all for uinternet piracy until they ALLOW us to get things, even if we have to pay a small fee for them.
18:53 < the_Bee> thanks for coming, KK. Have a good week.
18:53 < Alkari> Bye KK - thanks for dropping in and happy writing
18:53 < KK> No piracy p[lease.  not fair to the creators of the content--like me!
18:53 < Pol> amen!
18:53 < Alkari> No, I am happy to PAY
18:54 < Alkari> I just want to be able to get it
18:54 < derynifanatic64> :(piracy
18:54 < Shiral> Bye, KK
18:54 < KK> Nighters, all.
18:54 < derynifanatic64> nite KK
18:54 < Alkari> Night
18:54 < Jerusha> Night KK, have a good writing week
