[18:05] <jemler> hi kk
[18:05] <@Evie> hi KK
[18:05] <jemler> Merry Christmas!
[18:05] <@Evie> what jemler said!
[18:05] <KK> Hi, guys, such as you are.  Everyone must still be doing Christmas things, as I should be.
[18:05] <@Evie> that's what I figured too
[18:05] <KK> Evie, I like the new wall!
[18:06] <@Evie> Thanks!  I'm finally getting some time to catch up on projects
[18:06] <KK> You're visiting relatives, aren't you?
[18:06] <@Evie> I also found some cool mini stuff at an antiques mall yesterday, but not much of  it was medieval.  There were two tiny baskets I could use in medieval dios, though
[18:06] * Shiral (Mibbit@504018.A7BCBA.6044E5.E2E484) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:06] <@Evie> not relatives, just close friends
[18:06] <Shiral> Hi all
[18:06] <KK> Shiral!  Good to see you!
[18:06] <@Evie> hi Shiral
[18:07] <KK> Are you working?
[18:07] <Shiral> Hi KK! And hello Evie
[18:07] <Shiral> Yes
[18:07] <KK> Everybody ready for Christmas?
[18:07] <@Evie> almost
[18:07] <jemler> hi shiral
[18:07] <Shiral> But by good fortune, I'm off desk.  ANd I don't know WHERE I put my work ethic but it's nowhere to be found
[18:07] <Shiral> Hi Jemler
[18:07] <@Evie> I have to take the kids Christmas shopping, and pick up one or two more things
[18:07] <KK> I've got 4 presents to wrap, then I'm done.
[18:07] <Shiral> I'm more ready than I was at this time last week
[18:08] <KK> And we bought a new Christmas tree today--smaller than our old one, which had white lights.  This one is technicolor.
[18:08] <@Evie> I found some teeny ornaments for my 1:6 scale tree
[18:08] <KK> Much easier to set up and haul away to the attic when Christmas is past.
[18:08] <@Evie> but the tree is at home, so I won't get to decorate it with them until next year
[18:09] <Shiral> I bought a little table top tree yesterday, but had to put it outsdie.  Dmitri took one look at it and I could almost see the thought balloon over his head saying  "Cool toy!"
[18:09] <@Evie> LOL!
[18:09] <Shiral> outside, that is
[18:09] * DomMelchior (Mibbit@OWIRCN-6ca16e3e.irvnca.pacbell.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:09] <@Evie> yes, even on vacation I can't get away from feline interference in my projects.
[18:10] <DomMelchior> Hello and Merry Christmas all.
[18:10] <KK> Hi, Dom Melchior.  Is ROry ready for Christmas?
[18:10] <Shiral> I had the brilliant idea to make Christmas cards with my mini houses, but of course, I didn't have it until the middle of this month, so no sales on those, this year
[18:10] <Shiral> Hello Dom Melchior, Merry Christmas
[18:10] <DomMelchior> Yes indeed....any holiday that includes food is great with him!
[18:11] <KK> I got a big stuffed spider-thing for our guys, with a squeaker in each leg and several in the body.  I think they'll go wild--er.
[18:11] <@Evie> http://www.flickr.com/photos/9573389@N08/8301772460/  Resident cat taking a look at one of my antiques mall finds.
[18:11] <Shiral> That sounds like a gift with definite Dog-Appeal, KK
[18:11] <@Evie> LOL!  Spider tug-of-war?
[18:12] <KK> Afraid so.
[18:12] <DomMelchior> We keep Rory to bones.  He eviserates the stuffies in under 5 minutes
[18:12] <KK> But they enjoy it so much!  (I need to get fresh bo0nes tomorrow for our guys.)
[18:12] <Shiral> Okay, Evie, so which Little is going to be riding that motor cycle?  =o)
[18:12] <KK> Arilan and friend, it looks like.
[18:13] <@Evie> Watching Return of the King.  Drooling over scenes from Edoras.
[18:13] <@Evie> LOL!  The Harley is for my modern littles, although I suspect Alaric is going to want to give it a try as well. ;-)
[18:13] <KK> I'm watching Sound of Music.
[18:13] <Shiral> Denis Arilan has haunting feeling he was born in the wrong century
[18:13] <DomMelchior> The bones and his Kong ball are Rory's main toys....well, those and trying to attack my spleen.
[18:14] <Shiral> I'm watching the rain pour down. Don't know whether I should drive home or sail home.
[18:14] <Shiral> Dmitri has been having a great time with a wine cork on the kitchen floor
[18:14] <@Evie> The Anglo-Saxons could only dream of having a meadhall like this one in Edoras.  :D
[18:14] <KK> I'd heard you were having lots of rain.  My sister was getting ready to head over to her daughter's for the next couple of days.
[18:15] <jemler> is your car Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang? :)
[18:15] <Shiral> Actually, it's a champagne cork left over from Thanksgiving and he LOVES the way it rolls around
[18:15] <DomMelchior> Neither....wait for it to freeze and then take a sleigh.  It's the seasonal thing to do, S.
[18:15] <KK> Anybody seen The Hobbit yet?
[18:15] <@Evie> I have
[18:15] * Sarah is now known as Sarah_busy
[18:15] <Shiral> Alas, no, Jemler. Nor is it James Bond's submarine car
[18:15] <KK> How'd you like it?
[18:15] <Shiral> I want to see it, but haven't yet
[18:15] <DomMelchior> Yes
[18:16] * mib_oe2ng1 (Mibbit@OWIRCN-814d4dde.vt.comcast.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:16] <@Evie> I loved it.  It takes the liberties you'd expect of a Peter Jackson treatment of the original, but the feel of the movie is still faithful to the text, IMO
[18:16] <DomMelchior> Very nice.  The cinematography is gorgeous
[18:16] * Jerusha (Mibbit@A2BA3E.70F13F.066C85.D16E54) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:16] <Shiral> ALas, Dom, it's too warm for sleighs where I am! But that sounds like a great way to get around. Hello, Jerusha
[18:16] <mib_oe2ng1>  Bee Hi Jerusha
[18:16] <Jerusha> Hi Everyone!
[18:16] <KK> It's been padded, of course, to make 3 movies of it, but it looks good--or so I've heard.
[18:17] <@Evie> and at least the "liberties" seem mostly taken from appendices and/or the Silmarillion and other Tolkien backstory, as far as I could tell. Nothing seemed too implausible.
[18:17] <KK> Lots of good movies being released about now.  Les Mis, for another.
[18:17] <Shiral> I did kind of blink at that... the Hobbit is an itty-bitty book!
[18:17] <@Evie> I want to see that
[18:17] <mib_oe2ng1> 3 movies based on just one book?
[18:17] <Shiral> I could understand two, but 3???
[18:17] <mib_oe2ng1> fcvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv'.l;/////////c x888888888888888888888888888888888888888888p-0[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[
[18:17] <DomMelchior> Yes, it's expanded, but it is tastefully done.  I imagine JRR would be ok with it.
[18:18] * mib_oe2ng1 is now known as Bee
[18:18] <Jerusha> Cat typing?
[18:18] <KK> Bee--and Melantha!
[18:18] <jemler> hi bee. missed you last week.
[18:18] <Bee> yes.
[18:18] <Shiral> I have to see The Hobbit for curiousity's sake if no other. But my very picky sister liked the Hobbit.
[18:18] <@Evie> the film "Hobbit" is quite padded, but at least not obnoxiously so.  Then again, all of the adaptations have been so well done, I could forgive PJ his liberties, despite a few in LOTR being a little jarring.
[18:18] <Shiral> Now if somebody wanted to make three movies of the Camber books, I'd be perfectly happy with that! =o)
[18:18] <@Evie> hi, Bee
[18:19] <Bee> I'm at my sister's house in Vermont.  She has recly acquired a dog
[18:19] <Shiral> Hi Bee
[18:19] <Jerusha> Me too, Shiral!
[18:19] <Bee> recently
[18:19] <jemler> you mean like the elves showing up at helm's deep?
[18:19] <@Evie> yes, jemler
[18:19] <KK> So it was a dog helping you type rather than a dat?
[18:19] <DomMelchior> Hi Bee, Bee's sister, and Bee's sister's dog.
[18:19] * Shiral puts out a big pot of peppermint hot chocolate with lots of fluffy whipped cream and a big plate of shortbread
[18:20] <Jerusha> Pass the shortbread :)
[18:20] <@Evie> At least when PJ departs from the text, he does it in grand and glorious style, so it's hard for me to grumble too much. :D
[18:20] <DomMelchior> Mmmmm   Thanks Shiral
[18:20] <Shiral> Any time, DM
[18:20] <Shiral> True, Evie
[18:20] <jemler> i already laid out hot, fresh cinnamon rolls
[18:20] <Jerusha> Oh, yummy
[18:21] <Shiral> After missing so many chats, I have to ask....are Alaric and Brion in Bremagne, yet???
[18:21] <@Evie> though it leads to me laughing out loud in the theatre in scenes no one else laughs in, like when either Frodo or Sam says "We don't even belong here!" in the middle of Osgiliath, and I'm thinking, "Yeah, you're not supposed to appear in that scene at all!"  :D
[18:21] <KK> Not quite yet.
[18:21] <Jerusha> Are they packing for the trip, KK?
[18:22] * mib_g9j8kg (Mibbit@OWIRCN-814d4dde.vt.comcast.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:22] * Shiral wonders if they're going to swim there
[18:22] <KK> Yes, getting ready to go, having sent Xenia and her new husband off.
[18:22] <Shiral> ;)
[18:22] <Jerusha> Poor Xenia
[18:23] <Shiral> Even Princesses have overactive hormones...
[18:23] <Jerusha> Would they take one of Alaric's ships for the trip, KK?
[18:23] <KK> Especially if reinforced by unscrupulous suitors.
[18:24] <Shiral> And inattentive chaperones
[18:24] <KK> A ship has been sent for Xenia and co.  Brion's party takes one of his ships.
[18:24] <mib_g9j8kg> Is alaric old enough to haveof any sps
[18:25] <Shiral> Probably safer four Sigismund, or Brion would be severely tempted to tip his new BIL overboard when nobody else was looking
[18:25] <Jerusha> I would be happy to help
[18:25] <KK> We'll see what develops.  There might be young ladies at the Bremagni court who take a fancy to him.  Who knows?
[18:26] <Jerusha> Who would not take a fancy to Alaric Morgan?
[18:26] <mib_g9j8kg> Jehana
[18:26] <Shiral> Somehow, I doubt Alaric will be a Virgin for long
[18:26] <KK> There might be some bold enough to make a pass or two.
[18:26] <Shiral> True, Mib!
[18:27] <Jerusha> He's a bit young, isn't he yet?
[18:27] <KK> Nearly 12.
[18:27] * mib_g9j8kg is now known as the_Bee
[18:27] <Shiral> Young for 2012, NOT so young for 1103
[18:27] <the_Bee> Melscrewed up mconnection
[18:27] <KK> And he's the one who discovered Xenia in flagrante.
[18:29] <Jerusha> Not to young to understand the implications, but maybe a bit young to take an active part.  Even for 1103
[18:29] <@Evie> I can try to kick your ghost self, Bee, if you want to be able to change your nickname back
[18:29] <the_Bee> Yes, please and thanks
[18:29] * Bee was kicked by Evie (~IceChat77@OWIRCN-6c762ecf.bna.bellsouth.net) Reason (Evie)
[18:29] <Jerusha> Ouch!
[18:29] <@Evie> There you go
[18:29] * the_Bee is still here.
[18:30] <DomMelchior> Rough crowd
[18:30] <@Evie> to change back, you can do "/nick Bee" if you like.  I think that's the command.
[18:30] <@Evie> without the quote marks
[18:30] <the_Bee> My sister's nis large, shaggy and scared of cas
[18:31] <the_Bee> new dog.  Tbis keyboard keeps skipping letters
[18:31] <Jerusha> Bad keyboard
[18:32] <Shiral> I imagine that whoever was supposed to chaperone Xenia that night had an  unpleasant encounter with Queen Richeldis
[18:32] <Shiral> We don't use straws in our peppermint hot chocolate, Dom =o)
[18:32] <@Evie> I keep looking at LOTR sets and wondering if I can make something like that in 1:6 scale with foamboard and/or insulation foam. :D
[18:32] <Shiral> How is Xenia coping with her new married state?
[18:32] <@Evie> LOL! Yeah, I'd hate to be that chaperone, Shiral.
[18:33] <Shiral> And here I thought I was crazy for making itty bitty houses, Evie!
[18:33] <DomMelchior> Well my obnoxous dog is insisting that I drop everything and feed him, so I'm off.  Mainly I just wanted to drop in and wish everyone a very happy and blessed Yuletide.
[18:33] <Shiral> Talk about sleeping on the job!
[18:33] <Jerusha> I imagine the chaperone can't remember a thing, due to Sigismund
[18:33] <KK> I suppose she'll be doing ok.  Not much choice, really.
[18:33] <DomMelchior> Merry Christmas!
[18:33] <@Evie> nice seeing you, DM

[18:34] <Shiral> Making the best of a bad situation.  But I hope Count Sigismund is good to her, at least?  (ANd not bad looking??)
[18:34] <derynifanatic64> are we all ready for tuesday
[18:34] <KK> He's handsome enough.  And he'll want a Haldane heir ASAP.
[18:34] <Shiral> :PWhy? What's tuesday?
[18:34] <Shiral> OH right!
[18:35] <Jerusha> I hope she is treated will in her new home.
[18:35] * Bee (Mibbit@OWIRCN-814d4dde.vt.comcast.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:35] <Jerusha> Well
[18:35] <derynifanatic64> hi bee
[18:35] <Shiral> Hi Bee
[18:35] <@Evie> did you lose connection again, Bee?
[18:36] <KK> I'd better boogie.  Tree is still bare, and needs decorating.
[18:36] <KK> I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas.
[18:36] <Shiral> Aww ..... =o(
[18:36] <@Evie> you too
[18:37] <Jerusha> You too, KK, and all of your family
[18:37] <derynifanatic64> you too KK
[18:37] <Shiral> Merry Christmas, KK! And Family
[18:37] <@Evie> The littles have some mini ornaments if you need some. ;-)
[18:37] <derynifanatic64> and happy new year
[18:37] <Shiral> They'll need a tiny Yule Log, Evie
[18:37] <Jerusha> Do they have mini presents, too?
[18:37] <KK> I have plenty of ornaments; need to cull them, now that we have a smaller tree.  But we'll manage.
[18:37] <KK> To all a good night....
[18:37] <@Evie> Not yet, but I did get them a bunch of stuff recently, and have more on the way
[18:38] <Jerusha> Excellent!
[18:38] <Shiral> I  could only have a tree if I suspended it upside down from the ceiling
[18:38] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves good night, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[18:38] <Shiral> Night, KK! Happy Christmas
[18:38] <Jerusha> Night, KK!
[18:38] * the_Bee (Mibbit@OWIRCN-814d4dde.vt.comcast.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:38] <@Evie> LOL, shiral
[18:38] <Shiral> Life is tough with a vigorous young cat!
[18:38] <@Evie> gracious, Bee, I can't keep track with which one is the real you anymore!
[18:38] <Jerusha> No room for all because of all your lovely real estate, Shiral?
[18:39] <KK> Nighters.
[18:39] <the_Bee> I'm back--I think.
