[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:14:25 PM] <Evie> Really? Weird! I'll have to check the news. Maybe it was the southern edge of Birmingham.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:14:30 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12hi kk
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:14:33 PM] <Evie> hi, KK
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:14:48 PM] <Jerusha> Hi KK! The ice cream worked!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:14:53 PM] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:15:01 PM] <KK> Hi, guys, sorry I'm late. Computer woes, and my mIRC icon migrated. Had to search for it.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:15:03 PM] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:15:07 PM] <DesertRose> Oh fun, KK.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:15:13 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12bad computer
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:15:16 PM] Quit Rita has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:15:36 PM] Join Rita has joined this channel (Mibbit@OWIRCN-7c612fc6.cable.mindspring.com).
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:15:41 PM] <KK> Actually, bad Google. They "upgraded" things, and my great home page vanished. Can't get it back.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:15:42 PM] <DesertRose> Rehi, Rita.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:15:43 PM] * Rita gives a huge hug to KK!!!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:16:00 PM] <Rita> yes KK, it's really me!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:16:03 PM] <KK> Is that Rita in Texas?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:16:04 PM] <DesertRose> I hate that Google can't seem to leave well enough alone.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:16:06 PM] <Rita> yep
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:16:25 PM] <jemler> she's a paid psychick now!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:16:31 PM] <Rita> bet you got a bit bowled over eh?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:16:41 PM] <KK> Wow, really?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:16:44 PM] <Rita> yep
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:16:46 PM] <DesertRose> YouTube has been annoying me because you can't get video playlists to stay on shuffle any more.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:17:08 PM] <KK> And how's your son?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:17:12 PM] <Rita> I'm also in my final year of a bachelor's in Psychology now
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:17:22 PM] <Rita> great, here with me and skating again after an 8 year break
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:17:48 PM] <KK> I was going to ask if he still skates. How old is he now?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:17:52 PM] <Rita> 21
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:18:00 PM] <KK> Gad, not possible!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:18:08 PM] <bynw> hiyas KK
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:18:08 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12time does fly by
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:18:14 PM] <Rita> it's hard to imagine him not being a little kid anymore isn't it?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:18:19 PM] <Evie> Time is that thing that keeps happening while you're busy writing, KK. ;-)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:18:19 PM] <KK> And congrats on the degree.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:18:20 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Bynw
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:18:22 PM] <Rita> thanks
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:18:40 PM] <Rita> so how have you been, Katherine?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:18:50 PM] <KK> Good. Busy writing.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:18:55 PM] <Rita> awesome!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:19:09 PM] <Jerusha> How are our heroes this week, KK?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:19:19 PM] <jemler> you have bgeen keeping up with the books, haven't you, Rita?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:19:22 PM] <KK> Not that you'd know, as nothing new has come out since we moved back to the States. But th end is near!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:19:38 PM] <Rita> not really, got too busy the last few years...school mainly
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:19:40 PM] <jemler> Dec 21!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:19:48 PM] <Evie> LOL! I was about to say that, jemler. ;-)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:19:56 PM] <Rita> but now I'm getting right back into things...my life is coming a full circle
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:20:11 PM] <KK> Well, yes, it may all be in aid of nothing, if the world ends on the 21st.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:20:21 PM] <KK> I think I'll still keep writing, though.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:20:30 PM] <Jerusha> The world will not end before CM3!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:20:39 PM] <Rita> nah can't end on the 21st...my b'day is the 23rd...50th birthday at that!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:20:59 PM] <Jerusha> Happy birthday (in advance) Rita
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:21:02 PM] <KK> 50th? Yike.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:21:17 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12we'll find out on friday if the world will end
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:21:18 PM] <Evie> Happy early birthday, then! I just had mine a couple of weeks ago
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:21:23 PM] <Evie> my 50th as well
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:21:35 PM] <Evie> It better not end on Friday; that's when my vacation starts
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:21:35 PM] Topic You set the channel topic to "The Worlds of Katherine Kurtz: The Deryni, The Adept and Templar series and others. http://www.rhemuthcastle.com | http://www.deryni.net Happy birthday to Evie, Imladris, Unicorn636 (in memoriam), Rita, and the rest of the December birthday people!! :) Happy winter holidays, whatever you celebrate!!".
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:22:30 PM] <Evie> though at least I wouldn't have to worry about being late for work due to it being the end of the world
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:22:41 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, good excuse for not going to work. :P
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:22:44 PM] <KK> We're going to a party, but they're Scott's friends; I don't know them.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:22:57 PM] <Evie> an End of the World party?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:22:59 PM] <Jerusha> On the 21st, KK?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:23:12 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12friday is pay day for me
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:23:26 PM] <jemler> i won't have dialysis on saturday! Dec 22!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:23:27 PM] <DesertRose> I've got a birthday party to attend on the 22nd, so the world had better not end before I get to go to this party. :)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:23:31 PM] <Evie> That reminds me. I still have to figure out what to wear to our friends' New Years Eve party. It's a 1940s themed party
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:23:52 PM] <Evie> I think we're supposed to dress as if it's 1943
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:23:58 PM] <DesertRose> Evie, how long is your hair? I can point you at tutorials on how to do victory rolls with your hair, if it's at least shoulder length or so.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:23:59 PM] <KK> This is a birthday party, I believe.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:24:12 PM] <Evie> My hair is about mid-back now
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:24:14 PM] <KK> Her hair is long enough.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:24:16 PM] <DesertRose> Okay.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:24:45 PM] <Evie> I used to have hair "bananas" I could roll my hair up on, but haven't seen any of those in years. Though I could probably make one.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:24:50 PM] <bynw> mine is short :) hasnt been long in about 3 years
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:24:59 PM] <Evie> No Border braid now, bynw?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:25:18 PM] <bynw> nope cant do that with it right now
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:25:21 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12my hair is too short for border braids too
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:25:26 PM] <bynw> maybe i will grow it out again some day
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:25:47 PM] <Evie> I could re-root you with longer hair. You won't mind a long needle inserted repeatedly in your scalp, right?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:25:55 PM] <Evie> Just at the nape? ;-)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:26:06 PM] <bynw> ah i'll pass thanks
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:26:12 PM] <Evie> spoilsport
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:26:16 PM] <jemler> can you fir your head under a sewing machine, bynw?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:26:35 PM] <jemler> fit, sorry
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:26:37 PM] <Evie> that wouldn't work as well, jemler
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:26:40 PM] <DesertRose> Mine is too short for a lot of the stuff I used to do with it, but it's still long enough for me to do victory rolls.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:26:48 PM] <Evie> we'll just have to shave his head bald and glue on a wig
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:26:51 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:26:54 PM] <KK> These are all...creative suggestions. :)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:26:57 PM] <Evie> :D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:26:59 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12:D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:27:02 PM] <DesertRose> That, or pin in one of those fake braids. :D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:27:03 PM] <Jerusha> Just don't put his head on a stick
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:27:05 PM] <Evie> I'm all for the creative suggestions, KK
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:27:20 PM] <Evie> You're no fun, Jerusha. I was going to suggest that next
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:27:23 PM] <jemler> be careful to shave around my bald spot!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:27:49 PM] <Evie> Are you tonsured, jemler? That's a mindboggling thought. :D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:27:49 PM] <KK> Speaking of creative, how are the littles?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:28:00 PM] <DesertRose> YIKES, Evie. :P
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:28:09 PM] <bynw> i think he is only tonsured by age
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:28:10 PM] <Evie> The littles are currently in hiatus while I try to get things ready for our out of state vacation. Although I have a half completed stone wall for a diorama
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:28:28 PM] <Jerusha> When is your vacation, Evie?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:28:33 PM] <jemler> i'm only 9!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:28:38 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12where are we going
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:28:47 PM] <Evie> and I have the beginning of a photostory storyline for them, as well as one for my modern-day time traveler characters, who have turned out to have some psi powers of their own
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:29:01 PM] <Jerusha> Cool
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:29:10 PM] <Evie> This upcoming Friday is my last day of work until after the New Year
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:29:21 PM] <Evie> I return to work either the 2nd or 3rd
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:29:22 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, that reminds me, somebody else will have to catch chat on the 30th, because I will be out of town and I may not be able to get online at chat time.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:29:22 PM] <Jerusha> And you are travelling?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:29:24 PM] <Rita> KK: How's Scott doing these days? Is he writing too?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:29:57 PM] <KK> He's producing TV now--or trying to. Several projects in early stages.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:30:09 PM] <Rita> awesome!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:30:10 PM] <Evie> I'll be out of town the next two Sundays as well. We may have internet access, but since we plan on sightseeing during some of those days, I don't know for certain where I will be during chat times on the next two weekends.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:30:17 PM] <Evie> oh, cool, KK!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:30:25 PM] <DesertRose> bynw, are you going to be home on the 30th?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:31:12 PM] <Evie> Is there ANY hope Scott will write a book 3 of his Knights of the Blood series?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:31:50 PM] <Rita> now there's a question I'd like answered also!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:32:10 PM] <Evie> Because book 2 left me in the middle of a primal scream when I realized there wasn't another book in the series to finish the story off. :D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:32:28 PM] <KK> Dunno. There's some problem about who owns the rights, and he won't write more until it's sorted out.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:32:33 PM] <Rita> Evie: Bynw and I have been trying literally for YEARS to get Scott to write the 3rd one
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:32:51 PM] <Rita> argh...hate legal stuff like that!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:32:58 PM] Join Alkari has joined this channel (Mibbit@OWIRCN-273ffe79.internode.on.net).
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:33:03 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Alkari.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:33:06 PM] <Alkari> Hi everyone.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:33:09 PM] <jemler> let's tie him to an ant hill, cover him with honey, an ask him nicely!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:33:11 PM] <KK> Hello, Alkari.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:33:11 PM] <jemler> hi alkari
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:33:19 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Alkari! *waves*
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:33:25 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12hi alkari
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:33:29 PM] * Alkari waves back.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:33:41 PM] <Evie> If he is able to finish the series, he might want to go back and update the technology in books 1 and 2 to match the changes since the early 1990s. Otherwise it's going to be a bit of a giggle to move directly into book 3, unless it's backdated.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:33:44 PM] <Rita> hi Alkari
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:34:26 PM] <Evie> though reading about old-style car phones in 2012 made me a bit nostalgic, never mind I never actually owned one
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:34:30 PM] <Alkari> who is being tortured by Evie and jemler?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:34:45 PM] <DesertRose> Alkari: Scott
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:35:05 PM] <Evie> LOL! Hoping Scott will finish his series. He left it on a bit of a cliffhanger and never finished the next book
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:35:31 PM] <Rita> and me...but I'm sure he knows Bynw and I will torture and hound him about it any chance we get...lol
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:35:40 PM] <Evie> It was a bit like ...um....if George Lucas had ended the Star Wars series with The Empire Strikes Back. :D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:35:45 PM] <Alkari> lol
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:36:08 PM] <bynw> need to bug him at any darkovers about that
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:36:20 PM] <KK> You can try.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:36:21 PM] <DesertRose> KK, does Scott go with you to cons?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:36:42 PM] <jemler> DR, are you trying to find out when Scott is alone?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:36:57 PM] <KK> He goes to Darkover, occasionally others. Depends on who's paying.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:37:01 PM] <DesertRose> No. Just being nosy because it never registered on me that he would go with.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:37:08 PM] <DesertRose> Ah, I see. :)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:37:16 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12:D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:37:23 PM] <Evie> Tell him if he doesn't finish the series,we're going to stage a contest seeing who can write a fanfic photostory ending using action figures. ;-)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:37:36 PM] * DesertRose slaps jemler with a very large and colorful koi.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:37:56 PM] <Evie> Poor little koi
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:38:11 PM] <DesertRose> Indeed.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:38:14 PM] <bynw> i dont think of koi's as being "little"
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:38:29 PM] <Evie> I'm starting to wonder what all of these fish have done, to deserve such abrupt impacts with Jemler's thick skull
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:38:34 PM] <DesertRose> I wonder where the heck Bee is?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:38:48 PM] <Evie> I'm going to venture a guess. Bee is...not here.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:38:49 PM] <Rita> she hadn't been on FB today that I know of
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:39:04 PM] <jemler> she is very late
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:39:10 PM] <Rita> we usually play scrabble together on FB
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:39:15 PM] <Evie> holiday shopping, maybe?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:39:39 PM] <KK> Could be. I did a bit of that this weekend.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:39:44 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, I see her messing around on FB a good bit. It's just moderately unusual for her not to be here by now.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:40:11 PM] <Evie> Melantha might know, but she's not on the keyboard at the moment, judging from the lack of arcane strings of random type
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:40:18 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:40:21 PM] <KK> Well, maybe she's out doing something fun. I hope so!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:40:31 PM] <DesertRose> Maybe so. Tis the season to be busy as hell. :)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:40:37 PM] <Rita> yep yep
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:40:46 PM] <Alkari> I am doing Christmas cards - all of which to the USA will be 'belated'.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:40:59 PM] <KK> Gus is on my lap, and has been bugging me unmercifully for several days, to the point that I've almost had to throw him out of hte office, on occasion.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:00 PM] <Evie> Luke is curled up on the desk beside the keyboard, rather than on my wrists or stepping on the keys for once
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:02 PM] <Rita> I send e cards these days
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:10 PM] <Jerusha> My shopping is done, but the wrapping and shipping will now commence!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:12 PM] <DesertRose> I never got round to making my list of people to whom to send Christmas/Yule/whatever cards, so I didn't fool with them this year.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:13 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12unless you send the cards by overnight mail
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:14 PM] <Rita> hey Gus kitty!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:24 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Gus. :)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:35 PM] <Evie> My littles have a cat now. I haven't named him yet
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:35 PM] <KK> I did a bunch of wrapping Friday evening, and have to get the last boxes to the post office on Monday.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:41 PM] <Evie> He looks like a mini-Luke
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:49 PM] <Rita> oh, Katherine, I am now the proud "human" of 2 tuxedo twins
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:52 PM] <DesertRose> What does Luke think of his mini-me?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:52 PM] <Alkari> I have a bit more shopping to do, but only for immediate family. Going to PO later today as I can now drive short distances.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:41:56 PM] <Rita> purr purr and toodles...lol
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:42:04 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, Rita, do you remember AnnieUK?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:42:05 PM] <Evie> He likes him. He likes all of the littles
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:42:10 PM] <Rita> yes I do
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:42:30 PM] <DesertRose> She just adopted two little gray tabby kittens that she named Merry and Pippin. I told her she was borrowing trouble naming them that. :P
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:42:37 PM] <Rita> how cool!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:42:44 PM] <Rita> yep yep
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:42:51 PM] <Evie> http://www.flickr.com/photos/9573389@N08/8227539933/
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:42:56 PM] <DesertRose> She might have gone to bed by now, seeing as it's after midnight her time.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:43:02 PM] <Evie> That reminds me, DR; we went to see The Hobbit last night
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:43:08 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, excellent. What did you think?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:43:20 PM] <DesertRose> Stephani and her best friend and I went and saw it late Friday morning.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:43:37 PM] <Evie> I loved it. I'm wondering how they plan to make it into 3 movies instead of two, but it was nice to be back in Rivendell for a bit again
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:43:59 PM] <Jerusha> Cute mini-cat, Evie
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:44:06 PM] <DesertRose> I thought it was really good too, and I'm wondering the same thing, but I guess we'll see in a year or so. :)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:44:16 PM] <Evie> Thanks, Jerusha!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:44:33 PM] <KK> Will try to catch it next week, whle others are still shopping, maybe.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:44:46 PM] <bynw> rivendell is a good song too ... i like it when bands through out the years have made songs referencing middle earth ... Led Zepplin did a couple
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:44:47 PM] <Rita> good idea
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:44:48 PM] <Jerusha> My son saw it today, and liked it
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:44:51 PM] <DesertRose> It's definitely worth seeing on the big screen.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:44:59 PM] <KK> Evie, who is the guy packing heat with Luke and the little cat an tree?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:44:59 PM] <Evie> Like the book, it starts out a little slow, but then soon picks up the pace
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:45:14 PM] <Alkari> We get it on Boxing Day, along with lots of other good stuff
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:45:19 PM] <DesertRose> I wish we'd sat a little further back from the screen though. I have trouble with visual processing if things are too close.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:45:19 PM] <Evie> LOL! That's Mac. He's one of my time travelers
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:45:20 PM] <Rita> Battle of Evermore is one
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:45:33 PM] <Rita> Heart has a song too that's LTR related
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:45:36 PM] <Rita> LOTR
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:45:36 PM] <Evie> I'm working on a storyline for them that I'll be doing in a graphic novel format online, probably
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:45:45 PM] <Rita> Sylvan Song
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:45:45 PM] <DesertRose> Enya did one called Lothlorien years and years ago on the Shepherd Moons album.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:45:57 PM] <KK> Are they going on holiday with you?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:45:57 PM] <jemler> what about Misty Mountain Hop?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:00 PM] <Rita> Misty Mountian Hop
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:02 PM] <bynw> Rita: yes battle of evermore is one (and my fav zep song) and the other one is Misty Mountain Hop
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:04 PM] <Jerusha> I remember that song
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:17 PM] <bynw> and Rivendell is by my fav band of all time
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:18 PM] <jemler> bring it back!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:27 PM] <Rita> there's one more
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:31 PM] <Evie> Some of the littles will probably go with me. I have too many now to take them all, so probably just a few moderns and a few Deryni
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:33 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12Moon Over Minas Tirith
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:43 PM] <Evie> Duncan will probably come with me. ;-)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:46 PM] <Rita> yep...gollum, the evil one, crept up and slipped away with her
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:51 PM] <KK> Where are you going?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:56 PM] <Evie> Tennessee again
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:46:57 PM] <Jerusha> Will there be some photo ops, Evie?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:47:03 PM] <Evie> and possibly some sightseeing from there
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:47:22 PM] <KK> Especially if it should snow. Anybody heard whether there's any expected?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:47:25 PM] <Evie> we were talking about going on a short holiday trip, but haven't made definite plans yet
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:47:35 PM] <jemler> steampuink in chatanooga again?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:47:40 PM] <Evie> and possibly, Jerusha
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:47:54 PM] <Evie> No, we'll be north of Nashville, close to the KY border
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:48:02 PM] <Rita> Land between the Lakes?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:48:03 PM] <DesertRose> I have a playlist of holiday music playing, and the Hallelujah Chorus just startled ten years off my life. It's louder than most of my playlist.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:48:13 PM] <KK> Does it ever snow in Nashville?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:48:20 PM] <Evie> or that's where our best friends live anyway, but as I said, we've talked of taking a few days to sightsee elsewhere
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:48:28 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, I've got cousins up that-a-way, Evie. :)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:48:32 PM] <Evie> Oh yes, they get lots of wintry weather there
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:49:10 PM] <Evie> They're something like 4 hours north of us, and we get snow at least twice a year down here
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:49:12 PM] <Rita> LBL has great cabins for rent
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:49:32 PM] <KK> I was listening to the Pops on XM this afternoon, while driving around doing errands, and they played the Hallelujah Chorus. I like to sing along, but my voice is hot right now, from asthma inhaler.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:49:41 PM] <DesertRose> Snow? That is a four letter word to me. :)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:49:53 PM] <Alkari> LOL - me too!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:00 PM] <Rita> ugh KK, hope you feel better soon!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:01 PM] <DesertRose> I need to learn the alto line to the Hallelujah Chorus, because I can't hit the soprano line any more.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:04 PM] <Jerusha> It's normal for me - too normalQ!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:10 PM] <KK> I like snow! And my mom is praying for it.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:16 PM] <Alkari> And I am croaking like a bullfrog at present - my voice comes and goes
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:21 PM] <Evie> I like snow in small doses
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:29 PM] <Evie> which, fortunately, is all we get down here
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:30 PM] <jemler> we haven't had any yet. when we do, i'll send some your way DR!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:36 PM] <DesertRose> NO.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:42 PM] <Jerusha> KK, I could send you a bunch of it :)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:44 PM] <KK> We hadrly got any last winter, so I'm hoping for some this year.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:46 PM] <jemler> Steelers lost in overtime!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:46 PM] <Rita> lol
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:52 PM] <Rita> send some to me in Houston...haha
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:50:55 PM] * bynw can do without snow
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:51:07 PM] <Evie> I like snow if they close the roads for a day or two in the middle of a work week. ;-)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:51:07 PM] <Alkari> Always seems funny to hear "White Christmas" down here!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:51:14 PM] <DesertRose> Snow is cold and it makes a huge mess of the roads and just NO.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:51:18 PM] <bynw> snow in houston is like snow in atlanta ... shuts everything down while its there
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:51:24 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, I bet, Alkari.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:51:26 PM] <Rita> yep and fun
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:51:26 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12HOW BOUT THEM COWBOYS!!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:51:32 PM] <jemler> YES!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:51:36 PM] <Rita> how about dem TEXANS!!!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:51:38 PM] <Rita> lol
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:51:39 PM] <Jerusha> Snow up here is just another day in Paradise
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:51:50 PM] * Rita doesn't really like the cowgirls
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:52:00 PM] <Evie> and anyway, snow on the roads isn't so bad...it's ice that's bad
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:52:00 PM] <Jerusha> The Packers won!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:52:05 PM] <Evie> though they usually come together
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:52:07 PM] <DesertRose> On the exceedingly rare occasions that it snows in Florida, we act like Hell is freezing over.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:52:13 PM] <Rita> today they played the Colts though
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:52:16 PM] <bynw> boo packers
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:52:17 PM] * jemler will take them off your hands! :P
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:52:27 PM] <DesertRose> jemler, don't make me beat you!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:52:30 PM] <Jerusha> Bynw!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:52:44 PM] <Evie> I still regret passing by the "Welcome to Frostproof, Florida" sign with icicles hanging from it and not taking a photo
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:52:46 PM] <DesertRose> bynw, I thought you only cared about college football.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:53:13 PM] <DesertRose> Indeed, Evie. That would be almost as cute as the sign for Hell, Michigan with icicles all over it.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:53:18 PM] <Rita> has MAK been on lately?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:53:31 PM] <DesertRose> No, Rita, not for ages.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:53:36 PM] <jemler> MAK? Do i know that one?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:53:43 PM] <Rita> I'll bug her to death and make her come on
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:53:49 PM] <bynw> nope DesertRose i care about all football but i am not a packers fan. i am a vikings fan.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:53:50 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, okay.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:53:52 PM] <Rita> maybe in a couple weeks because her Dad just passed away
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:54:03 PM] <DesertRose> Oh, crap. I'm sorry to hear that.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:54:09 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12:(
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:54:13 PM] <Evie> and I have yet to meet my fellow Duncan fan, JastaElf (she says sadly)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:54:19 PM] <Rita> yeah...I'll pass on to her that everyone misses her
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:54:22 PM] <DesertRose> Let her know that we're thinking of her, would you, please Rita?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:54:30 PM] <Rita> I sure will
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:54:42 PM] <Rita> yeah, where HAS Sharon been?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:54:44 PM] <DesertRose> JastaElf is a lot of fun, if we could get her to get her typing fingers back in chat. :D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:54:52 PM] <DesertRose> I see her on Facebook semi-regularly.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:55:03 PM] <DesertRose> She posted a week or so ago about having deer mice in her house.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:55:09 PM] <Rita> lol
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:55:12 PM] <Evie> eep!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:55:16 PM] <DesertRose> She is not happy about that.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:55:19 PM] <jemler> well it is hunting season.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:55:21 PM] <Rita> I'll bet not
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:55:35 PM] <Evie> I'm sure the deer mice are happy to be snug and warm, though. ;-)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:55:36 PM] <DesertRose> Thank you, I'll pass on hantavirus.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:55:42 PM] <KK> What are deer mice? I asked, but got no rsponse.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:56:00 PM] <DesertRose> I'm not sure myself. Some kind of pestilential rodent.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:56:17 PM] <Evie> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peromyscus
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:56:22 PM] <Evie> Those are deer mice
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:56:55 PM] <Evie> They look adorable, though yeah, hantavirus is not so adorable
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:57:26 PM] <Alkari> Need a nice friendly carpet snake as 'control':D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:57:29 PM] <Jerusha> They invade each year under my kitchen sink
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:57:39 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12hantavirus--very bad
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:57:39 PM] <jemler> strange name for a virus. Hanta means 'Thank' in Quenya.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:57:41 PM] <KK> They look like something my cats would enjoy hunting.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:57:43 PM] <DesertRose> That, or a collection of particularly good hunting cats.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:58:05 PM] <Evie> Given a choice between cats or a snake in the house, I'll keep my cats, thanks
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:58:05 PM] <Jerusha> Whippets are horrible mousers
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:58:12 PM] <DesertRose> That's about the only wildlife my parents don't see around their house, mice and rats.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:58:24 PM] <KK> Jasta has been busy with Life, which is why she doesn't chat.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:58:38 PM] <DesertRose> Ah. Understandable, but we miss her.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:58:39 PM] <Rita> ahh, well tell her we all miss her
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:58:59 PM] <KK> I shall mention it, next time I talk to her.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:59:06 PM] <Evie> Silly Life. It needs to pause between 7 and 8 Eastern on Sundays. :-(
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:59:12 PM] <KK> True.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:59:33 PM] <Rita> I wish Shiral could've been here today
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:59:40 PM] <KK> Is she working?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:59:48 PM] <DesertRose> My parents have a fox that likes to visit their yard, and a fairly large hawk of some sort who hangs out in their neighborhood. Add in a couple of cats and the occasional snake, and there are NO rodents to be found.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:59:56 PM] <Evie> Tell her she can't leave me outnumbered by all of these Alaric fanbabes. Duncan needs more ladies in his corner. ;-)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [07:59:57 PM] <Rita> Bynw/DR, gotta defer that one to you two
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:00:19 PM] <DesertRose> I'm not sure. I'd guess so, because Shiral does generally show for chat if she's not at work and sometimes if she is.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:00:35 PM] <Rita> KK, I just got through a grueling semester so this is my first day back on chat in many many moons too
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:00:38 PM] Join Kelric has joined this channel (~IceChat9@OWIRCN-a16c8e76.il.comcast.net).
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:00:41 PM] <DesertRose> Hi Kelric.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:00:47 PM] <Rita> hey Kelric!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:00:50 PM] <Jerusha> A Bishop needs more ladies, Evie? :D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:00:51 PM] <Alkari> Dunca does NOT need more ladies, Evie! :p
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:00:52 PM] <Rita> this is Mistyck!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:00:53 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12hi kelric
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:05 PM] <KK> Of course, she could be shopping--or finishing houses for people's holiday gifts, now that she's selling her stuff.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:09 PM] <Evie> On second thought, you're both right. Duncan just needs me. :D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:12 PM] <DesertRose> That's true.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:15 PM] <jemler> hi kelric
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:22 PM] <Jerusha> Hi Kelric!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:27 PM] <Evie> hi Kel
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:30 PM] <Kelric> ahoy all.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:33 PM] <KK> Hi, Kelric.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:37 PM] * jemler shuts up
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:44 PM] <Evie> good idea, jemler
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:51 PM] <jemler> :)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:54 PM] <Jerusha> Jerusha puts her smelt away
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:01:55 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, I was about to type something to that general effect, Evie. :D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:02:09 PM] <Evie> Great minds think alike. And so do ours, DR.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:02:19 PM] <DesertRose> Tainted minds, more like. :D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:02:24 PM] <jemler> i do have ideas from time to time. some of them are even good! :)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:02:32 PM] <DesertRose> :P
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:02:38 PM] <Evie> Too bad you never share the good ones here. ;-)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:03:03 PM] <Evie> KK, have Brion and co made it into Bremagne yet?
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:03:14 PM] <jemler> depends on your definition of 'good' :)
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:03:33 PM] <DesertRose> BRB
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:04:12 PM] <KK> No, I redid part of that chapter. But they're about to go.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:04:54 PM] <Rita> I need to catch up on my Deryni reading...
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:05:10 PM] * Rita is ashamed to admit she hasn't done much book reading in the past few years :(
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:05:17 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12nooo
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:05:30 PM] <jemler> <gasp>
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:05:38 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12i'm reading a book on the history of Ellis Island
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:05:47 PM] <Evie> I've done more writing than reading in the past few years, but now I'm catching up on some reading
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:06:09 PM] <Kelric> I need to go and do a reread myself as well. Heck, I'm a bit behind when it comes to the childe morgan books...
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:06:14 PM] <Jerusha> Will there be more writing, Evie *looks hopeful*
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:06:15 PM] <Evie> mostly 'fluff', since I have to read in short spurts and can't concentrate on anything too involved
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:06:41 PM] <Jerusha> I'm reading a Time Travelers Guide to Medieval Englad
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:06:47 PM] <Jerusha> England
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:07:15 PM] <Evie> Probably, Jerusha. I've just been a bit overloaded, and writing Visionaries at such a fast pace burned me out a bit. But I have two Deryni stories in progress, plus my original photostory fic that will probably be written out fully first before I truncate it to mostly dialogue and some narrative captions.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:07:26 PM] <Evie> Oh, I love that book, Jerusha!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:07:35 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, back.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:07:51 PM] <Jerusha> I am enjoying it very much
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:07:54 PM] <Evie> I drew from it a little bit when writing some of the Deryni fanfic
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:08:09 PM] <Evie> or at least had some bits in the back of my mind as I wrote
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:08:33 PM] <Evie> things like how long it would take to cover certain distances, for instance, or what inns were like
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:09:12 PM] <Jerusha> Like you, I'm reading it in short spurts, but liking it a lot
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:09:23 PM] <Evie> Although I did the fanfic characters the favor of not making them sleep six to a bed in an inn with total strangers.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:09:30 PM] <KK> Well, I gotta go, gang. There's some chicken in the fridge that wants cooking; thawed a couple of days ago, so I <have> to do something with it tonight.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:09:45 PM] <Rita> thanks for stopping by Katherine
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:09:45 PM] <jemler> nite kk
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:09:47 PM] <Evie> Yeah, need to get that cooked sooner rather than later

[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:10:01 PM] <DesertRose> Okay, night night, KK.

[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:10:16 PM] <Rita> I'll be here
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:10:21 PM] <DesertRose> We'll be here, barring the end of the world!! :D
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:10:22 PM] <Rita> making it a point to be here from now on
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:10:26 PM] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:10:31 PM] <Evie> I hope Alaric enjoys Bremagne when he gets there
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:10:33 PM] <Jerusha> I should go, too. Must get back to wrapping for shipping
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:10:36 PM] <jemler> maybe we'll meet on the other side!
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:10:41 PM] <derynifanatic64> 12happy mayan end of the world day on friday
[Sunday, December 16, 2012] [08:10:44 PM] <KK> Ta for now.

"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.)
