[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:23:03 PM EDT] <Jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:23:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The cookie cutters worked, Shiral.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:23:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No, my Pod-Child, Jemler
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:23:28 PM EDT] <KK> Hi, guys. I was just checking in when Evie messaged me. I'm here!

[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:23:51 PM EDT] <The_Bee> any news?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:23:56 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hello KK
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:23:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No, it came from a joke a friend of mine made about me and my ex-husband, that any child of ours must of course be a Hell-Begotten Pod-Child.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:24:00 PM EDT] * bynw is great, saw Solo last night
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:24:12 PM EDT] <Evie> We're seeing it tomorrow
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:24:15 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Was it good?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:24:15 PM EDT] <KK> Good, Bynw?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:24:36 PM EDT] <Derynifank> How was it bynw
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:24:52 PM EDT] <bynw> kk, its not bad. nothing major just a few fill in the gaps for Han's origin story if you are already familiar with it that is
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:24:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> "And there was much rejoicing throughout the land! YAY!"
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:25:14 PM EDT] <Jemler> how far into the past does the story take place?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:25:27 PM EDT] <Laurna> Definityly want to see that movie
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:25:35 PM EDT] <KK> I understand that this is where he meets Chewie.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:25:55 PM EDT] <bynw> it would fall sometime after Episode 3 Revenge of the Sith and before Rouge One
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:26:01 PM EDT] <Jemler> and chewie is about 190?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:26:16 PM EDT] <bynw> yeah in his 190s somewhere
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:26:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> BRB, tea has gone empty and that will not do.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:26:39 PM EDT] <Shiral> Rouge one is where everyone learns to use makeup?? =o)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:26:43 PM EDT] <Jerusha> So true, DR
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:26:52 PM EDT] <Jemler> wow! that would make him about 250 in the force awakens!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:26:54 PM EDT] <Jerusha> :)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:27:01 PM EDT] <Laurna> In the trailers, the actor for Han looks like a good young Solo. I hope he pulls it off.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:27:06 PM EDT] * Shiral refreshes the chat room tea table....with corgi cookies
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:27:07 PM EDT] <bynw> but the origin story of how we met chewie has been part of what is now called Legends, and used to be called the Expanded Universe
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:27:22 PM EDT] <bynw> he didnt do bad at all Laurna
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:27:27 PM EDT] <KK> Ah, corgi cookies!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:27:40 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Corgi Cookies? They bite back?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:27:51 PM EDT] <KK> I've heard good things about the film.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:28:02 PM EDT] <Laurna> COrgi Cookies Yumm
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:28:22 PM EDT] <bynw> its a good flick, i liked it.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:28:25 PM EDT] <Laurna> When has a Corgi ever been known to bit
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:28:31 PM EDT] <Evie> So, I imagine you got up early for the Royal Wedding, KK?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:28:52 PM EDT] <KK> Indeed. It was really good.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:29:01 PM EDT] <Jemler> i saw a trailer on youtube that said Episode 9 will be called "Echoes of the Jedi". not sure if it's legit.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:29:18 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yup, my cutters arrived this week. =o) Haven't had a chance to try them out, though. Furniture ALSO arrived home this week.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:29:37 PM EDT] <bynw> anything you see on youtube right now is probably just rumor and what people want it to be Jemler
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:29:41 PM EDT] <Laurna> Yah for Furniture to be returned home
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:29:44 PM EDT] <Shiral> Thought the bride looked beautiful, and I liked her dress
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:29:49 PM EDT] <Jerusha> You actually have corgi cookie cutters?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:29:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> I actually do
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:30:16 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I was not that thrilled with the dress.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:30:25 PM EDT] <Shiral> I was seduced into them by a certain author we know
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:30:25 PM EDT] <Jerusha> But she did look lovely
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:30:28 PM EDT] <Laurna> I wished her dress followed better. the train that is. or that someone had laid it out better
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:30:30 PM EDT] <bynw> it was sad that she didn't have any family there other than her mom. no one else to share the experience with from an American POV
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:30:38 PM EDT] <Laurna> They looked totally in love
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:30:44 PM EDT] <Shiral> They did!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:30:57 PM EDT] <Evie> I wasn't at first, but the dress grew on me. It's more her style than something ruffly or lacy would be.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:31:09 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I lived the black and white wedding photo afterwardsd
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:31:10 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I'm wwondering how Meghan will manage actually tryingto live as aa royal.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:31:15 PM EDT] <KK> I liked the dress. And I thought it was breath-taking as she walked up the first part of the aisle together, and the sunlight fell down on her.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:31:28 PM EDT] <Shiral> Perhaps a few pearl buttons wouldn't have been amiss. but she looked lovely in it
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:31:31 PM EDT] <Jemler> brbg. dinnrt.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:31:35 PM EDT] <KK> first part of the aisle alone.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:31:49 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Not unusual for a modern woman
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:32:00 PM EDT] <KK> Couldn't have seen the buttons under that exquisite veil.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:32:06 PM EDT] <Laurna> Her best friend from California was there. an actress who got her dress, a 1930's orange dress from Western costume. that is Hollybwoods big movie cloths wearhouse.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:32:08 PM EDT] <Shiral> Her life will be......different, certainly
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:32:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, I'm sure she's aware of that, though.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:32:39 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I was so glad she made it down the stairs safely after the ceremony
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:32:48 PM EDT] <KK> The little pages and bridesmaids were so cute, and performed impeccably.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:32:50 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I know I would have done a face-plant
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:32:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I can't imagine one would accept a prince's proposal of marriage without having at least something of a clue about the giant fishbowl that is life in the royal family.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:32:54 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Got up for the wedding and loved it all
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:33:27 PM EDT] <Shiral> I watched a tape-delayed streaming video on my iPad. Everyone looked about 2 inches tall
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:33:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I rather wonder if the Duchess of Cambridge had any conversations with the new Duchess of Sussex regarding life as a royal wife.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:33:58 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I'm sure she did
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:34:01 PM EDT] <Shiral> But thank goodness for my iPad, or I'd have missed all of it
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:34:12 PM EDT] <KK> I'm sure they discussed it well before, during the lead-up to the proposal, even.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:34:17 PM EDT] <bynw> well the Duchess of Cambridge'
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:34:18 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Meghan is not unused to the spotlight
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:34:34 PM EDT] <bynw> s life will be very different from Meghans.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:34:42 PM EDT] <Evie> My only local station broadcasting it was having some major interference in the signal, so I had it on but muted, and watched the same network's live stream on YouTube for the sound and a few different camera angles
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:34:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My mom DVR'd it but deleted it because the recording was kind of crap, so she was at last report trying to find a good copy to DVR so I can watch it at her house on the big HD TV in the living room.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:34:47 PM EDT] <bynw> the Duchess of Cambridge is a future Queen
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:34:54 PM EDT] <Laurna> At least an actress loves the spotlight
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:35:10 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Actually she seems to cope well so far. I think she does have a pretty good idea of what is involved . I also think that the royal family has learned from past events and seem much more supportive.,
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:35:25 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, yes, but the Duchess of Cambridge was also a relatively ordinary if well-off young lady before she met Prince William, so I would think she'd have some useful information and perspective to lend her new SIL.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:35:30 PM EDT] <Evie> If she has an internet capable TV, there are several full length videos of the wedding on YouTube
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:35:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> They do
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:35:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I threw a YouTube video up there for the Kiddo to watch the last time I did my laundry at the house.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:36:12 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I wonder how much coverage Princess Eugenie's wedding will have
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:36:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (I posted it to my Facebook, too, the sequence of dominoes meant to show a scale of astronomical time.)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:36:52 PM EDT] <Laurna> I looked it up. Princess Eugenie is supposed to get married At St Georges's Too. in October
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:37:28 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Remind me--how does Eugenie fit into the royal family?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:37:33 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Also, Prince Harry is tremendously protective and supportive,
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:37:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She's Prince Andrew's daughter
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:37:39 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Prince Andrew
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:37:42 PM EDT] <Jerusha> s daughter
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:37:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Prince Andrew is Prince Charles' younger brother
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:38:06 PM EDT] <KK> I'd think that at least BBC America would cover Eugenie's wedding, and maybe others as well.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:38:09 PM EDT] <The_Bee> That I recall. He marriedFergie.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:38:19 PM EDT] <Laurna> The best friend in the orange dress, said that once they were all in the the main cathedrall it was like a very intimate wedding cerimony. Only they could hear the crowd cheering outside and that made them all smile.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:38:22 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yep
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:38:37 PM EDT] <Jemler> i guess donald trump is the new worlds most eligible bachelor.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:38:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I liked Meghan's dress, but I tend to go for fairly simple fashions.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:39:01 PM EDT] <KK> The tiara ws exquisite.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:39:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I also liked Kate's gown. Hers reminded me of Grace Kelly's.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:39:03 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Only he's not a bachelor
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:39:14 PM EDT] <Jerusha> ??? Trump is married?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:39:20 PM EDT] <Jemler> that never stopped him before.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:39:24 PM EDT] <Laurna> Love Love her Tiara
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:39:25 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yes, it was! I loved that HM let her borrow it.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:39:28 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Love tiaras
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:39:41 PM EDT] <Derynifank> It was gorgeous
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:39:49 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Simple can be elegant in a dress.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:39:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yes.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:39:59 PM EDT] <KK> It suits her very well. I suspect it might become her go-to tiara, on sort of semi-permanent loan.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:40:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I went for simple and elegant with my senior prom dress. :)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:40:25 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Which I still have, although I'll likely never been thin enough to wear it again, to say nothing of having an occasion that would call for it!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:40:29 PM EDT] <Laurna> Actually they said she gets the sussix tiara but I have not seen a picture of it.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:40:32 PM EDT] <Jemler> i was in a body cast for my prom.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:40:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> *never be
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:40:50 PM EDT] <Shiral> I can't recall going to the prom
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:41:12 PM EDT] <Laurna> Missed Prom

[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:42:15 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hi Eyiki
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:42:26 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Never went to a prom
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:42:39 PM EDT] <KK> I went to two proms, at different schools. Two different dresses, both gifted from a girl at church. The first was was fairly ghastly, in retrospect. The second wasn't bad.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:43:06 PM EDT] <Evie> I decided to go to mine at the last minute, but I had the bridesmaid dress i wore to my cousin's wedding, so I wore that.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:43:06 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I went as a junior but don' tv remeber going as a senior because my boyfriend had graduated
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:43:08 PM EDT] <KK> I have pictures around here somewhere, I think.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:43:08 PM EDT] <Laurna> 1970's ghastly
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:43:33 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hard to do ghastly more convincingly than in the 1970's
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:43:43 PM EDT] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:43:43 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Social moth
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:43:50 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:43:53 PM EDT] <KK> Early 60's were pretty awful, too.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:43:56 PM EDT] <Jemler> i had spinal fusion surgery at the end of march. in 2 body cast until the following february. missed my entire senior year.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:44:09 PM EDT] <Shiral> I think I'm still a social caterpillar
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:44:12 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Ouch
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:44:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Eyikl
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:44:18 PM EDT] <KK> Wow, did you have to repeat the year?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:44:28 PM EDT] <Shiral> Would make it hard to go to prom, yes, Jemler
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:44:39 PM EDT] <Derynifank> You mean you didn'T love all that avocqdobgreen, gold and orange, not to mention the polyester
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:44:51 PM EDT] <Jemler> no. i had tutors, so i did graduate with the class.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:44:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> I look awful in all of those colors, so yes
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:44:58 PM EDT] <Jerusha> That's good
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:45:12 PM EDT] <Evie> KK, did you see the recent movie version of The Man from UNCLE? That did '60s style very nicely, though admittedly they avoided the worst aspects of 60s style
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:45:15 PM EDT] <Jemler> that was in 1981.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:45:17 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Avocado green
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:45:30 PM EDT] <Jemler> guacamole.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:45:30 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I had those appliances
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:45:41 PM EDT] <Jerusha> :)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:45:51 PM EDT] <Jemler> or is that Guacam ole!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:45:55 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Avocado should be eaten, not worn.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:45:55 PM EDT] <Shiral> I think that's why I've never liked actual avocadoes
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:46:14 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I never met an avocado I liked
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:46:28 PM EDT] <Shiral> Me neither
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:46:31 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Isn't guacamole made from avocados?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:46:34 PM EDT] <Shiral> YEs
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:46:36 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yep
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:46:39 PM EDT] <bynw> yes
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:46:39 PM EDT] <Derynifank> It is
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:46:41 PM EDT] <Shiral> I don't eat that, either
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:46:48 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I don't like it either
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:46:49 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Me either
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:46:51 PM EDT] <KK> I love avocados--to eat, not to wear their color.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:46:54 PM EDT] <Laurna> But Shiral your a Califorina girl?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:47:29 PM EDT] <Shiral> When it comes to Avocadoes, Laurna, I might as well be a Boston Brahmin.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:47:39 PM EDT] <Laurna> I am thinking or redoing my whole kitchen in country green Cabnets.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:47:48 PM EDT] <Laurna> LOL Shiral
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:47:57 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Then you prefer baked beans?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:48:03 PM EDT] <Shiral> The ocean, the oranges, the climate--I can get behind all that. But NOT avocadoes.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:48:05 PM EDT] <Laurna> My dad and my sister are the same way
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:48:09 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Country green and avocado green are not the same (I hope)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:48:16 PM EDT] <Shiral> Well.. maybe not, because I'm not a fan of baked beans, either
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:48:27 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Eew to baked beans
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:48:31 PM EDT] <Laurna> No not the same Jerusha
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:48:37 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Oh, good
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:48:44 PM EDT] <KK> How can you be a Californian and not like avocados, Shiral?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:48:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I like avocados and guacamole, but I will admit that they are not the most appetizing color.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:49:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> https://s6.postimg.cc/6ldlb9pwh/Senior_Prom_May_1993_me_only.png (There's my prom dress; be nice, it was 1993. :D )
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:49:10 PM EDT] <Shiral> I let my family eat my share of the guacamole, KK. =o)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:49:11 PM EDT] <Laurna> I love fresh Avacodoes just pealed. but the can not sit around for long
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:49:31 PM EDT] <Laurna> Very Nice DR
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:49:43 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Wow. DR
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:49:57 PM EDT] <KK> Pretty, DR. And the dress is also pretty. ;-)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:50:00 PM EDT] <Evie> Cute!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:50:14 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My mom liked avocados. She grew the seed as a house plant.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:50:29 PM EDT] <Derynifank> You look very sophisticated in it. I like it
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:50:44 PM EDT] * bynw is not a fan of avocados or anything made from them
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:50:47 PM EDT] <Shiral> I think my aversion has a lot to do with the squishy texture as well as the color
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:50:56 PM EDT] <KK> Laurna, is country green sort of like what also might be described as apple green?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:50:57 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I agree
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:50:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Thank you.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:51:02 PM EDT] <Laurna> i wnet to one freshman dance. but I had to make my own. Mom would not splurg on buying one
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:51:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That was one of the few times my hair looked remotely decent at that length; not coincidentally, it had been professionally styled. :)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:51:29 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Knowing how you sew, Laurna, it must have been lovely
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:51:29 PM EDT] <Laurna> Country green is just a tad more sea green than apple green
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:51:38 PM EDT] <Shiral> I love apples, and I love apple green. But the texture of apples is very different
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:51:47 PM EDT] <Shiral> Not to mention the taste
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:51:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The jacket I borrowed from my mom, because I got cold feet at the last minute about wearing a strapless dress. That lasted less than 30 minutes into the dancing. ;)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:52:03 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I hate mushy food
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:52:20 PM EDT] <Laurna> That was back when I was just learning to sew. Or why I was learning to sew
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:52:21 PM EDT] <KK> Both my inherited dresses were strapless, so I put skinny rhinestone straps on them. Wore a tiara with the second one.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:52:37 PM EDT] <Jerusha> cool
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:52:53 PM EDT] <KK> More like a verdigris, Laurna? (I like verdigris.)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:52:55 PM EDT] <Laurna> Love Tiaras
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:53:22 PM EDT] <Shiral> I made two blouses and a pair of culottes. I gave personal sewing after making the world's ugliest plaid blazer
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:53:38 PM EDT] <Shiral> Verdigris is a nice color
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:53:51 PM EDT] <Laurna> I think so. but not sure of the color. I was at homedepot yesterday to make an appt for kitchen measuring and designing. We shall see what comes of it.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:54:03 PM EDT] <Shiral> OOps, Gotta go. Guests are here
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:54:04 PM EDT] <Shiral> BYE!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:54:08 PM EDT] Quit Shiral (~49df776d@OWIRCN-1bdd9d77.org) has left this server (Quit: CGI:IRC).
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:54:11 PM EDT] <bynw> cya shiral
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:54:21 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Bye
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:54:23 PM EDT] <Laurna> Good belately bye bye Shiral
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:54:38 PM EDT] <The_Bee> verdigris, green-gray?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:55:05 PM EDT] <Evie> I'm still trying to decide what color to repaint the kitchen. I'm thinking maybe a pale yellow. I'm not usually a yellow fan, but I want something that will be light and airy, since the kitchen looks small and dark.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:55:19 PM EDT] <Evie> And that's even with wallpaper that has cream as the main background color
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:55:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My parents' kitchen is painted a very light yellow.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:55:47 PM EDT] <Laurna> My sister did a nice yellow straw colorin her kitchen and it looks great
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:55:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I thought my mom was high when she made that decision but it actually works very well. It looks airy and comfortable.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:55:55 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Do you like light green?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:55:57 PM EDT] <Evie> Verdigris is the color of green that you see on copper that has corroded, Bee
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:56:00 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I love palebyellow, it does make a dark room look lighter and bigger I think
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:56:03 PM EDT] <Evie> It's a sort of bluish-green
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:56:05 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Pale yellow can be very nice
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:56:39 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Sunshine is a good colour
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:56:49 PM EDT] <KK> Sort of, Bee. And Evie, I think yellow kitchens are splendid. My one in Ireland was yellow for many years, until we redid the cabinets and tile. Then we went with a warm terra-cotta.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:57:00 PM EDT] <Laurna> My family room is repainted in a bright sunny yellow. but when I took the color into the kitchen wall. I hated it. So that will likely be tilled in
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:57:19 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Here's a pic of the Pod-Child in her Rey/TFA cosplay from Halloween, but she's standing in the kitchen. [image link removed for privacy]
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:57:42 PM EDT] <Evie> If we can afford to repaint our cabinets (which won't be covered by insurance, but paint is cheap), that would help, since they are currently dark brown and look horrible.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:57:55 PM EDT] <Laurna> Hello Pod Child
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:58:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh yeah, yikes!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:58:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Mom's cabinets are white.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:58:29 PM EDT] <The_Bee> She looks ready for combat.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:58:39 PM EDT] <Jerusha> We had oak cabinets and repainted them white. The results were amazing
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:58:44 PM EDT] <Laurna> MY current cabnits are dark brown too and very 1980's and awfull
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:58:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, yeah, she's supposed to be Rey from the newer Star Wars movies (played by Daisy Ridley).
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:59:13 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Like the color, almost a creamy yellow , looks good with the natural wood floors
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [7:59:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That's actually (fairly high-end) laminate flooring, but that was the idea. Thanks, Derynifank!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:00:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Their house, having been built in the mid 1980's in Florida, doesn't have many windows so it doesn't get much natural light, which drives my mother batty, so she was trying to maximize the light she DOES get.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:00:37 PM EDT] <Evie> My cabinets are from at least the 80s, if not the mid-70s. I think they are original to the house, which was built around 1974.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:01:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Word to the wise: Take the cabinet doors OFF before painting, and let everything dry before reinstalling the doors onto the cabinets.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:01:15 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Paint can be a major improvement
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:01:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> ;)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:01:17 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I had a friend who solved that problem by installing 2 skylights which dud wonders
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:01:29 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Could she have a window installed? My cousin did that with his house.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:01:35 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Very true, DR
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:01:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That might work in the bedrooms, but the living room has a cathedral ceiling so they'd have to hire it out, and the kitchen is directly below the attic, so it'd be a bit difficult to put a skylight in there. :)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:01:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Dratted designers.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:02:05 PM EDT] <KK> If you're going to paint kitchen cabinets, success lies in the prep. You need to make sure they're totally clean and de-greased, at least lightly sanded, and then, if you can afford it, have someone come and spray-paint them for the best finish. Careful rolling will also work, if budget won't allow the spray-painting.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:02:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> There is a window in the kitchen, but it's a fairly small one, and because of the floor plan, it'd be difficult to add a window without completely tearing everything apart.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:02:37 PM EDT] <Jerusha> We did have someone do ours
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:02:41 PM EDT] <Derynifank> There are companies that specialize in skylights and I think they are less expensive than windows
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:03:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My stepdad would complain about the cost, but my mother would probably put her foot down and tell him he's not falling off the [bleep] roof the way he did that tree a few years back!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:03:06 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Except when it rains, skylights are noisy
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:03:17 PM EDT] <KK> How about enlarging the window that's already there?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:03:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That's true, and the "Sunshine State" gets a lot of rain, nickname notwithstanding.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:04:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's hard to explain, but basically, the kitchen window is as big as it can be without running into the wall of the garage.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:04:06 PM EDT] <Jerusha> And they can be very warm on a sunny day
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:04:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The architect on that house was smoking something that could not be purchased legally in the US in the 1980's. :)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:04:35 PM EDT] <KK> I rather like the patter of rain. We can hear it on the roof of our cat pantry, which used to be an outside porch, and has roof directly above it. As opposed to the true kitchen, which has bedrooms above it.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:04:47 PM EDT] <Jerusha> The skylight in my Dad's kitchen if brutal in the morning
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:04:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Cat pantry?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:04:51 PM EDT] <KK> Gotcha, DR.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:05:08 PM EDT] <Jemler> our dog is terrified of thunder.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:05:19 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I'M not sure but I think they extended the skylight through the attic and ceiling using some kind of tube
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:05:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I like the sound of rain, too, but when it's pouring fish hooks and hammer handles like it does sometimes in Florida in the summer, it can get to be a bit much. :)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:05:44 PM EDT] <The_Bee> KK, have you ever heard rain on a tin roof? More like artillery than pattering.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:06:35 PM EDT] <Evie> Rain on the skylight over my desk at work sounds about like that also
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:07:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> A house I rented in my uni years had that heavy plastic roofing over the back porch, and the sound of rain on that was nice to hear, unless it was just a deluge, in which case the cats all panicked and puffed up.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:07:21 PM EDT] <KK> We enclosed the outer porch, opened up the window to a door, to connect it to the kitchen, and put low cabinets and a narrow countertop along that front wall, The cats get fed on that counter, and there's a dog gate between the two rooms, so that the dogs ca't can't come in and menace the cats or eat their food. Cat box is also out there, tucked under that low counter, so that dogs can't go rooting for "treats." (I know: gross.)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:07:28 PM EDT] <Derynifank> My grandmothrr's house had a ton roof and it sometimes patterned and sometimes sounded like a machine gun
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:07:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Dogs do silly stuff sometimes, KK. And that sounds like a nice arrangement.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:07:59 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Tin roof
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:08:00 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Nice arrangement, KK
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:08:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> If my parents were planning to keep their house, I think it wouldn't take much of a nudge to get my stepdad to build a catio for PJ, Merlin, and the nameless kitten.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:08:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> But the house is on almost an acre, and the day is coming sooner rather than later when my stepdad isn't going to want or be able to mow that much lawn.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:08:39 PM EDT] <KK> They're also terrified of thunder, which we've had some of this afternoon. Booker is the more scared of the two, and tries to get under the knee hole of my desk.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:08:41 PM EDT] <Jerusha> New nameless kitten?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:09:03 PM EDT] <DesertRose> https://s6.postimg.cc/nlwhjr0b5/Kitten_found_at_Mayo_around_10_weeks.jpg
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:09:30 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Aw.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:09:49 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I would name her Demeter
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:09:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Kiddo found her at work, and we thought she was a boy so she got the tentative name Percival (to go with Merlin and Arthur the hamster who has taken over the habitat of the late Guinevere the hamster), but then the vet said the kitten is a girl, so back to the drawing board with naming.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:09:56 PM EDT] <Derynifank> So tiny, with those big kitten ears
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:09:59 PM EDT] <Eyikl> awww. :) Letfeti looked like that.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:10:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yes.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:10:12 PM EDT] <KK> Awwww. o cute.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:10:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She has gargantuan ears in proportion to the rest of her head.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:10:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And she is TEENY.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:10:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I got to meet her yesterday, and she is SO skinny (parasites and lack of food before the Kiddo brought her home; food is now available in abundance and parasites are being treated).
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:11:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> But she is very sweet. After a little skittishness, she let me pet her and promptly started purring like the world's tiniest motor and making biscuits in the air with her itty-bitty kitty feets.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:11:19 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Good care goes a long way for healing
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:11:20 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Maybe she'll grow into her ears.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:11:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I almost died of cute.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:11:41 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Adorable
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:11:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yes. The vet said that, that she was in good hands.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:12:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (My parents have used the same vet clinic for over two decades.)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:12:14 PM EDT] <Jerusha> We've done the same
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:12:15 PM EDT] <Laurna> Hello Namless kitty
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:13:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, if it ain't broke don't fix it (re: keeping the same veterinarian for ages).
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:13:23 PM EDT] <Jerusha> She could be Morgana
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:13:29 PM EDT] <KK> Sweet kitten!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:13:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That name is in contention, yes. :)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:14:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I suggested Circe because PJ's full name is Penelope Jane, but depending on whether one went with classical Greek or modern pronunciation, that could end up sounding like Capt. Kirk's surname or the name of a Lannister from Game of Thrones (which my stepdad watches).
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:14:57 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I like Circe with soft "cs"
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:14:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Shiral suggested Calypso earlier. I might mention that one; it could work. :)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:15:00 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Nimue or Vivian?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:15:11 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Nimue!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:15:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That sounds good!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:15:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'll have to suggest those!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:15:42 PM EDT] <KK> I like Nimue.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:17:56 PM EDT] <Jemler> how about Niamh.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:18:30 PM EDT] <Derynifank> How about Bestrice, Latin name meaning bringer of joy
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:18:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No one would spell or pronounce it correctly, but I guess the Kiddo is used to that since her legal first name is spelled in a slightly unusual fashion and her SCA name is Irish.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:18:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (re: Niamh)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:18:43 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Beatrice
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:19:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> People can generally pronounce the Kiddo's name correctly, but almost no one ever spells it right.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:19:48 PM EDT] <Jemler> sound out her name. let's see if i get it right.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:19:50 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Who would mispronounce "Kiddo" ? :D
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:19:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:19:59 PM EDT] <Laurna> https://www.pinterest.com/pin/457185799667179067/ these are my fish in my new fishpond. Goldilocks, Phantom and Bronze age.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:20:04 PM EDT] <bynw> i thought it was PodChild :)\
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:20:16 PM EDT] <Laurna> don't remember if I shared that already
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:20:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Pretty fishies!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:20:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She answers to that sometimes, bynw. ;)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:20:43 PM EDT] <Laurna> The are now parents, I counted 9 baby fish fry this morning
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:20:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Wow!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:21:08 PM EDT] <Eyikl> Those are pretty fish.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:21:12 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I hope this will not turn into a fish fry!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:21:21 PM EDT] <Laurna> nope
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:21:22 PM EDT] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:21:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's not the sound of my daughter's name that people screw up, Jemler; it's the fact that I spelled it a little differently on purpose.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:21:34 PM EDT] <Jemler> someone roe, roe, roed the boat?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:22:07 PM EDT] <bynw> hmmm link only takes me to a bunch of different pictures many of them have nothing to do with fish
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:22:14 PM EDT] * DesertRose would throw caviar at Jemler but why waste expensive food? So a sturgeon fillet (since a whole sturgeon would probably knock a person unconscious).
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:22:16 PM EDT] * Jerusha throws a mackeral at jemler
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:22:20 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Looks like you have a fish nursery
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:22:28 PM EDT] <KK> Those are beautiful fish! Are there babies in the photo?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:22:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> If you don't have a Pinterest account, bynw, photos on Pinterest are contrary about showing from a link.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:23:05 PM EDT] <Laurna> not in the photo that was the day before she layed all the eggs. the baies are 1/2 long now
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:23:21 PM EDT] <Jerusha> They grow fast
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:23:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Which is why "-pinterest" ends up in almost every Google Images search I ever do.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:23:39 PM EDT] * Jemler baits a hook
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:23:46 PM EDT] <KK> Ah. Hopefully, the adults won't eat all the babies.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:23:46 PM EDT] <Laurna> Sorry Bynw. didn't know where else to quickly post the picture
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:24:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And I used the wrong "filet." "Fillet" is a small crown/circlet. Oops.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:24:23 PM EDT] <Eyikl> Funny you say that DR, I don't have a Pinterest account and I've never had any trouble.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:24:25 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hmm, a fishy coronet
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:24:34 PM EDT] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:24:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Post Images is handy, Laurna. (just postimages dot org)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:24:48 PM EDT] <KK> About how many babies hatched?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:24:50 PM EDT] <Jerusha> fish and coronets smell in three days
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:25:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Don't say that at an SCA event!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:25:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Especially not a war (since those tend to last about a week unless it's Pennsic in which case it's a fortnight)!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:25:25 PM EDT] <Laurna> I think acoupple hundred hatched. very thankfull to still see about a dozen or more.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:25:39 PM EDT] <Laurna> Don't have room for any more than that
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:25:53 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I bow humbly to those in SCA

[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:26:16 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Do they have birth control for fish?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:26:25 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yep. Larger fish
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:26:29 PM EDT] <Laurna> Yep
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:26:49 PM EDT] <Laurna> adn frogs. but I don't have any frogs inmy new pond
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:27:22 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I get the same as Bynw. many pictures, not sure which is fish
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:27:31 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I do like hearing the peepers in the spring, though
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:28:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys says hi.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:28:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She just stretched out on my desk.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:28:15 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hi Carys
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:28:27 PM EDT] * Jerusha offers scritches
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:28:34 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi, Carys
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:28:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She purrs at Jerusha for petting her.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:28:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She likes to be petted.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:29:22 PM EDT] <KK> We only have Sasha at home right now, and the dogs. Gus and Nicholas boarded with the vet while we were in Canada, and I can't spring them until Tuesday because of the holiday.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:29:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm pretty sure she annoyed the life out of the pest control people, because they showed up the same day that management delivered the calendar informing me they'd be there that day, and I was at Mom's doing laundry so I wasn't there to get her out of the pest control people's way.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:30:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys doesn't like other animals, but humans are cool and she will be a nuisance until you pet her. :)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:30:17 PM EDT] <Jerusha> You were in Canada, KK?

[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:31:14 PM EDT] <Laurna> does that work
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:31:27 PM EDT] <KK> Yes. Drove up for a surprise 88th birthday party for a dear friend. He was surprised. :-)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:31:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Did for me, but let's let some other folks give it a test drive.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:31:37 PM EDT] <bynw> now that's a pic i can see
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:31:56 PM EDT] <KK> We left last Sunday and got back yesterday. In Toronto for 3 days.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:31:59 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Nice, KK. Hope it was a good trip
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:32:00 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Worked great. Beautiful fish
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:32:17 PM EDT] * bynw is glad that spammer didnt post its foul drivel to this chat
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:32:21 PM EDT] <Eyikl> Does the red fish have a name, Laurna?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:32:30 PM EDT] <The_Bee> very bright colors
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:32:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> One fish two fish red fish blue fish? :)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:32:35 PM EDT] <Laurna> Bronze age
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:32:43 PM EDT] <Jerusha> One ,fish, two fish, red fish....
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:32:56 PM EDT] <Laurna> Goldilocks is the big orange one and a lady fish
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:33:02 PM EDT] <Jerusha> :) DR
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:33:08 PM EDT] <KK> Wow, those look like big-ass fish! You don't have herons in your area, I hope.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:33:13 PM EDT] <Laurna> Phantom is the white one
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:33:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or like the band t-shirt that they ran afoul of copyright law on, "One fish two fish red fish blowfish"
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:33:30 PM EDT] <Laurna> Too big for a heron. they are 24 inches long
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:33:36 PM EDT] <Jerusha> WOW
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:33:45 PM EDT] <Jerusha> That's two feet!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:33:50 PM EDT] <Laurna> yep
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:33:51 PM EDT] <KK> I was going to ask how big. There are proper koi, then.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:33:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (Which was a Hootie and the Blowfish band t-shirt that they had to stop making once they got a national record deal because of the copyright on Dr. Seuss' estate.)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:34:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Depends on the bird.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:34:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> There were some herons or egrets or something that hung out by the site Trimaris used to use for kingdom events that were about four feet tall and would poke their beaks into your tent should you fail to secure the flap when you went to bed.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:35:08 PM EDT] * bynw has a couple of posts for "Ghosts in the Past" ready to go but cant post them until other things happen first
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:35:10 PM EDT] <Laurna> Funny birds.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:35:20 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Oh oh
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:35:20 PM EDT] <bynw> er "Ghosts of the Past"
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:35:22 PM EDT] <Laurna> AACK !
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:35:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> They weren't aggressive, but it can be a bit startling to see a massive bird beak when you don't have your glasses on much less have gotten any blood in your caffeine stream!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:35:36 PM EDT] * Jerusha hides under her desk
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:35:47 PM EDT] <Laurna> Run Run Run AWAY!
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:35:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Way to panic the players, bynw. :P
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:36:06 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Well, if things don't happen first...
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:36:07 PM EDT] <bynw> HAHAHAHAHAHA
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:36:10 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hope it's not more bad news😢
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:36:20 PM EDT] <Jerusha> It's always bad news
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:36:21 PM EDT] <Laurna> Fore shame Bynw
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:36:35 PM EDT] <Laurna> Always bad news I fear
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:36:39 PM EDT] <bynw> DesertRose, but I'm the GM, I'm supposed to panic them.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:36:44 PM EDT] <Jerusha> But we are devious, too
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:36:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:36:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or at least tick them off. :P
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:36:55 PM EDT] <Laurna> KK my poor character has been kidnapped
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:37:00 PM EDT] <Jerusha> And very, very stubborn
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:37:21 PM EDT] <Laurna> And I can do nothing. Nothing.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:37:41 PM EDT] <Jerusha> You will prevail
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:37:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> One of my favorite songs is playing on my Pandora station: "Southern Cross" by Crosby Stills and Nash.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:37:55 PM EDT] <Laurna> I can cry
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:38:01 PM EDT] <KK> Our pond was too deep for herons to wade in, so our fish were safe, at least from them. (Don't ask about husbands who put the hose into the pond to "top it up," and then go off and forget it's running. We had some very pretty fantails, anout 5-6 inches long, but just about every fish in the pond died because of the chlorine build up. In all fairmess, DH felt terrible about it. And the cats were not interested in the bodies.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:38:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oops.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:38:43 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Sounds like a bad dice roll
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:38:51 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Torenthi dic3e
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:38:52 PM EDT] <Laurna> I did that once too. KK. It happens. Now I never put the hose down if I am near the pond.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:38:56 PM EDT] <Jerusha> dice, that is
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:39:45 PM EDT] <KK> Now we have no fish, because our pond liner sprung a leak and we can't find it. We hope to reinstate with some other kind of water feature, not necessarily with fish. It was pretty while it lasted, though.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:40:05 PM EDT] <Derynifank> It gets really discouraging if the news is Always bad
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:40:08 PM EDT] <Jerusha> A pond would be nice, but ours would breed mosquitoes
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:40:24 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I don't need more mosquitoes
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:40:38 PM EDT] <Laurna> Need Mosquito fish in every pond solves that trouble
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:40:56 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I'll take a dozen, thanks
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:41:02 PM EDT] <KK> Interestingly, after the hose fiasco, we mostly restocked with so-called feeder fish, and got some pretty ones out of the batch. YOu never know what you're going to get with those, but they're cheap and not too finicky.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:41:04 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Fish, that is
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:41:05 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Water features are lovely except for the mosquitos which are already out in force
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:41:47 PM EDT] <KK> Fish should keep their numbers down, and the fish thrive.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:42:24 PM EDT] <Jerusha> We have battery powered mosquito rackets, citronella torches, thermo-nuclear devices
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:42:44 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Wow
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:42:52 PM EDT] <Laurna> Watching fish is very calming. especialy when trying to think of ways to escape from Bynw's plans
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:43:24 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I need fish, then
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:43:27 PM EDT] <The_Bee> but a fish won't sit in your lap.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:43:44 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Well, it will, but it won't last long
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:43:48 PM EDT] <Laurna> Ah but the dog sits in my lap as i watch the fish
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:43:54 PM EDT] <Derynifank> They don'the purr or snuggle either
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:44:04 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Only one dog? :)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:44:18 PM EDT] <Laurna> one at a time. The others stay at my feet
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:44:26 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Life is good
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:44:39 PM EDT] <Laurna> Life is very good
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:44:46 PM EDT] <Laurna> Well not Washburns
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:44:56 PM EDT] <Jerusha> We will prevail
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:45:06 PM EDT] <Jerusha> (take note, Bynw)
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:45:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Dogs snuggle.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:45:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> At least, the dogs of a lot of folks I know who have dogs are cuddly.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:45:28 PM EDT] * bynw notes to get Washburn some fish
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:45:47 PM EDT] <Laurna> LOL aack Please dont
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:45:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And there's a pic in the Fur Kids gallery on RC of my ex with his dog in his lap (never mind said dog was a 60-lb Lab mix who takes up all the lap and then some).
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:45:54 PM EDT] <Jerusha> So long as they are not drugged, that's ok
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:46:16 PM EDT] <Laurna> So long as he is not in the water with them
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:46:21 PM EDT] <KK> No, cats are far superior to fish as pets. I miss my Gus, but he'll be home on Tuesday. He had a hematoma on one ear, which is why he went to the vet. And when they said he needed srops in his ears twice a day for a week, I wasn't going to try to get our house-sitter to do that. So he was boarding. And because Nicholas is getting a little frail, and he was due for his senior cat blood work and the like, I put him in, too, so they could ke
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:46:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I hope Gus and Nicholas are well.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:46:56 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yes
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:47:14 PM EDT] <Laurna> Hope they all come home happy and healthy
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:47:26 PM EDT] <KK> I'm sure our vet would have called us if there was any problem.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:47:28 PM EDT] <The_Bee> no more girl cats, KK?
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:47:48 PM EDT] <KK> Not at this time. I'm the only girl in the house.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:47:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Fish can be trickier to care for than a lot of folks think, too.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:48:14 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Battery is getting low so need to say goodnight . Have a good week and good vibes to Wash, it would be so sad to lose him.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:48:17 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I can't even keep guppies alive
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:48:19 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Cats are pretty easy. Food, water, clean litter box, petting, windows for bird-watching.
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:48:19 PM EDT] <Laurna> Spoiled then I do hope
[Sunday, May 27, 2018] [8:48:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> G'night, Derynifank

Even if I read the important ones on my phone and delete what doesn't need to be saved, they're still there on my desktop machine. And my "international roaming" was not working properly. I could send and re ceive texts, and receive e-mails but not send. But no web access. And Scott couldn't get anything at all on his phone. It's a good thing we weren't gone any longer.

Could it possibly be in the abandoned  church in the Jewish part of Rhemuth that Denis found when he was looking for a Talmud scholar.
Have to say that I find it very discouraging that  everything seems to be tilted in Feyd's favor. Doesn'T seem that it will lead to a good outcome for Wash. Would really hate to lose him,

There is only one ArchMage and that is Camber.

I would say Camber was close but Orin was the one and only.

I would argue that Dom Emrys, Dom Queron, and Lady Evaine came pretty close as well, and Joram probably also.

Topic - Wards and Wards Major

I've been looking through the past posts that we have had in the game concerning Wards/Warding/Wards Major aka Ward Cubes. And I have found the following to be true and we should continue to use this pattern.

  • Creating Wards or Warding requires a Test
  • Activating Ward Cubes or dispelling Ward Cubes (by the owner of said set) does not require any Test
  • Using someone else's Ward Cubes would require a Test

This has been what we have been doing all along just wanted to make it Official.

Those were all honest losing rolls. I would have made the scene for after Feyd had left, if they had succeeded. Though it worked better with this timing, so that Duncan's attempt happened right after. Now we have to go find Poor Sextus. Any guesses where this portal is before I get the answer from Bynw and write it up?

Feyd seems to get a inordinate amount of successful rolls, no matter who is rolling for him.  Sigh.  Though we knew Washburn could not be rescued because Feyd already made the second jump.  (Drat.)

i am relieved that Darcy has no idea how to use a portal.  Or even what a portal is.

Ack! let us not do that. There would be no time for even a saved test from that. Unless a successful saved test bounced you back where you started. A failed saved test and you are dead, Instantly.

I still prefer the idea that a trapped portal has a set number assigned to it.  and everyone has to test themselves against that number.
Now because the person making the trap would have plenty of time to get it right. I would think they could choose the higher number from two separate rolls to assign to the trap. Maybe a Spell trained person rolls 2d6 but can get 2 rolls to pick the highest number, A ritual magic trait user 2d6 gets 3 rolls to pick the highest number, and a Spell master gets  3d6 with 2 rolls to pick the highest number.  and Archmage ( do we have that) gets 3d6 with 3rolls to pick the highest number.
The portal is assigned that number until the trap is disabled or the portal distroyed.

Example test for setting a trap
Ritual magic user rolls three times
12:00   Portaltrap   !roll 2d6
12:00   derynibot   5, 3 == 8
12:00   Portaltrap    !roll 2d6
12:00   derynibot   1, 1 == 2
12:07   Portaltrap   !roll 2d6
12:07   derynibot   4, 5 == 9

His highest score is 9. the portal trap is set at 9 and any one trying to detect that trap has to roll better than a 9.

Spell master setting a trap.
12:05   Portaltrap   !roll 3d6
12:05   derynibot   3, 4, 2 == 9
12:06   Portaltrap   !roll 3d6
12:06   derynibot   6, 1, 3 == 10
his highest number is a 10.  the portal trap is set at 10 and anyone trying to detect that trap must roll better than a 10.

The same number holds for deactivating the trap.

What do you think?

I dont think 2 rolls and taking the best one would be good. There are Traits that allow for Luck that way to re-roll some Traits. Just one roll is all you get to get your number. But yes a with a Spell Trained/Ritual Magic you get 2d6 and with Spell Master you get 3d6.

As for Archmage, no there isnt anything for that in this rule set of the Deryni.
