[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:56:41 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:56:42 PM EST] <Jemler> hikk
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:56:58 PM EST] <KK> Hello, all.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:57:14 PM EST] <DesertRose> Evie is afk, I think for food.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:57:21 PM EST] <Derynifank> Hi KK, is it snowing up your way?

[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:58:29 PM EST] <Derynifank> Hi BTE
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:58:29 PM EST] * DesertRose directs everyone to the tea table, where there is gateau breton and various teas, hot or iced.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:58:29 PM EST] <Jemler> BTE!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:58:30 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi BalanceTheEnergies
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:58:44 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> Hello all.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:58:55 PM EST] <Derynifank> Lovely tea table, DR. Yum
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:59:05 PM EST] <KK> Has been snowing for past 24 hrs or so, letting up last few hours. We've gotten about 6-7 inches, I think.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:59:22 PM EST] <DesertRose> Jasta mentioned that they've gotten about nine, more towards DC.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [6:59:58 PM EST] <Derynifank> Didn't quite get this far south and east, just LOTS of rain
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:00:26 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yuk, it's probably just warm enough in the Hampton Roads area to avoid snow/sleet, but you get that icky cold rain.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:00:38 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> 5ish inches here
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:00:43 PM EST] <DesertRose> A good day to stay inside and read a book or chat or something. ;)
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:00:44 PM EST] <Derynifank> Sad but true
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:01:18 PM EST] <judyward> Re-hi, all
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:01:22 PM EST] <DesertRose> Rehi judyward
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:01:28 PM EST] <Derynifank> Hi Judy
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:01:31 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> Hello judy
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:01:53 PM EST] <Jemler> i've been re-reading the riftwar saga.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:02:26 PM EST] <KK> This was a soft snowfall, gentle and atmospheric. Tomorrow will still be a challenge, because of ice. Last time we had a big snowfall, in December, I couldn't get to my mailbox for about 4 days because of the ice underfoot. Mail ain't worth slipping and falling and maybe breaking somethin;g.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:02:38 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yeah, no.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:02:47 PM EST] <Derynifank> I'm not familiar with that. Have been rereading some Brother Cadfael. Love those
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:02:49 PM EST] <bynw> hi all
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:02:51 PM EST] <DesertRose> If there's anything in the mailbox that urgent, the sender can phone you.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:02:54 PM EST] <KK> But I want to hear about the dead squirrel under Evie's pillow.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:03:00 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:03:11 PM EST] <Derynifank> Hi Bynw
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:03:31 PM EST] <Evie> Back now
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:03:33 PM EST] <Evie> Hi KK!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:03:41 PM EST] <Derynifank> A dead squirrel? Under her pillow? Yikes!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:03:43 PM EST] <Evie> LOL! So you saw that, huh?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:04:02 PM EST] <KK> There she is! Do tell about the dead squirrel. Ewwww!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:04:04 PM EST] <DesertRose> SCA event sites can cause some fairly weird human-wildlife interactions.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:04:10 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> I have a reading assignment: My humanist group is discussing The Swerve by Stephen Greenblatt, and I'm supposed to lead the first discussion next week.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:04:30 PM EST] <KK> Facebook never lies. Well, almost never.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:04:31 PM EST] <Evie> I was at a church retreat at our denomination's campground. We had rented a lodge to stay in overnight. My room wasn't inside the main building, but opened up off the front porch.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:04:43 PM EST] <DesertRose> Oh, I thought y'all were at an event.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:04:47 PM EST] <Evie> Nice lodge, with rooms a bit like a hotel room, only more rustic
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:05:20 PM EST] <Derynifank> But what about the deceased squirrel?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:05:26 PM EST] Join Shiral (uid327538@OWIRCN-c7444ab5.irccloud.com) has joined this channel.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:05:26 PM EST] <Evie> Anyway, the beds (two double-beds) were nicely made hotel-room style, each with a comforter, sleeping pillows, and decorative throw pillows on top of those.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:05:33 PM EST] <Jemler> hi shiral
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:05:36 PM EST] <Derynifank> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:05:39 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi Shiral.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:05:39 PM EST] <Shiral> Hello All
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:05:44 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> Hello Shiral
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:06:04 PM EST] <Shiral> Hi Jemler
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:06:18 PM EST] <DesertRose> Shiral, there's gateau on the tea table. :D
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:06:24 PM EST] <Evie> So I didn't notice anything amiss for most of the night until I went to get ready for bed. When I took the decorative pillows off the bed, underneath them, curled up and looking sound asleep at the intersection of all four pillows, was a dead squirrel.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:06:26 PM EST] <Derynifank> And the squirrel was?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:06:38 PM EST] <Shiral> Num, num! Thanks DR! And happy birthday once again
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:06:48 PM EST] <DesertRose> Thank you. And yikes, Evie!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:06:59 PM EST] <DesertRose> Although your DH's way of joking about it was pretty darn funny.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:07:08 PM EST] <Derynifank> Happy birthday DR in case I missed
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:07:13 PM EST] <DesertRose> Thank you, Derynifank
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:07:18 PM EST] <Shiral> GAH! Dead squirrels in bed is not my idea of fun.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:07:25 PM EST] <Evie> Now, we had wondered earlier in the evening about some odd debris on the bathroom floor, which looked almost like the "popcorn" off a popcorn covered ceiling (except the ceiling was smooth). We figured maybe it had fallen out of the bathroom vent, which was built into the light fixture.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:07:31 PM EST] <Shiral> Happy Birthday to you too, DerynifanK
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:07:59 PM EST] <judyward> Hi, Shiral
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:08:06 PM EST] <Shiral> Hi Judyward
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:08:21 PM EST] <Derynifank> DRs birthday. Thank you but Mine isn't til August. Could have an unbirthday
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:08:25 PM EST] <Evie> So myworking theory is that poor Fluffy fell through the vent from some attic space, was unable to get back out of the room the way it got in, managed to squeeze under the bathroom door in its effort to escape, couldn't find food or water, and ended up dying in the closest thing to a comfortable
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:08:25 PM EST] <Evie> nest it could find. :-(
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:08:27 PM EST] <DesertRose> I think you may be thinking of derynifanatic64, whose birthday was Wednesday.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:08:38 PM EST] <Evie> (I felt sorry for the poor thing, honestly!)
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:08:38 PM EST] <Shiral> Oops. Yes
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:08:51 PM EST] <Derynifank> Awww
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:09:05 PM EST] <judyward> Evie, that vent was saying "Vacuum me!"
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:09:32 PM EST] <Derynifank> Since squirrels are often suicidal in traffic was probably a much easier way to go
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:09:46 PM EST] <Evie> But at the time, dead rodent was not really my ideal choice for a bed partner, so I went back into the main lodge, where my priest, our youth pastor, and a few others were still playing cards. I said "Um, y'all, there's a dead squirrel on my bed..."
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:10:10 PM EST] <Derynifank> Bet that got their attention.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:10:12 PM EST] <judyward> Was it a squirrel?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:10:18 PM EST] <Evie> My priest, not fully processing this strange statement at first, replied distractedly, "OK, I'll check it out once we finish playing this hand."
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:10:21 PM EST] <DesertRose> And DH saw his opportunity to post the video for "The Mississippi Squirrel Revival." :P
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:10:29 PM EST] <Shiral> It's a bit too much mortality maybe
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:10:36 PM EST] <Jemler> ray stevens!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:10:52 PM EST] * Shiral snaps fingers and produces a tray full of cream puffs
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:10:54 PM EST] <Evie> Me: "OK." Waits patiently. A few seconds later, the comment hits his brain. He looks back at me. "Did you say there is a dead squirrel ON YOUR BED?"
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:10:55 PM EST] <judyward> Love that song!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:11:02 PM EST] <Evie> Me: "Yup!"
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:11:21 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL, I'd love to see video of your priest's face when he said that, if only someone had been taking video.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:11:27 PM EST] <Evie> Him: "Um...Yeah. Well, I guess the gentlemanly thing to do might be to go help you with that, huh?" :-D
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:11:31 PM EST] <DesertRose> ROFL
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:11:37 PM EST] <Evie> "Yeah, that would be nice."
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:11:54 PM EST] <judyward> The day the squirrel went berserk in the first self-righteous church...
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:12:00 PM EST] <Shiral> Squirrels entertain my cats. They sit by my patio sliding door and watch The Squirrel Channel on my back patio
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:12:07 PM EST] <Shiral> LOL
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:12:17 PM EST] <Jemler> in that sleepy little town of pasgagoolah
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:12:23 PM EST] <DesertRose> Carys gets the Waterfowl Channel, since our windows overlook a creek and a couple of retention ponds.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:12:40 PM EST] <Evie> So they did some rummaging around, found the linen closet, managed to find a clean fitted and flat sheet in it, and we removed all of the dirty linens, took the squirrel away for burial in trash can, flipped the mattress over (to bury the smelly spot), and remade the bed.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:12:41 PM EST] <judyward> You got it, Jemler
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:12:58 PM EST] <Jemler> sister bertha better than you
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:13:31 PM EST] <Evie> Fortunately the room had been very cold before we arrived there, and the squirrel was not too badly decomposed, so there wasn't a bad smell in the room, just on the part of the bedclothes in direct contact with Deceased Fluffy.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:13:48 PM EST] <Derynifank> Well my cat once brought in a live mouse, let it go and sat back to watch the fun
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:14:12 PM EST] <Evie> Once we flipped the mattress, remade the bed, and I borrowed a pillow from my roommate's bed, all was well. Except for poor Fluffy.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:14:21 PM EST] <Derynifank> At least you didn't have to chase it
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:14:25 PM EST] <DesertRose> All's well that ends . . . sort of well.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:14:29 PM EST] <Evie> Pascagoula. It's a real place. LOL!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:14:32 PM EST] <Shiral> I have a feeling Fluffy was rather past caribng
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:14:37 PM EST] <Shiral> CARING. darn fingers
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:14:51 PM EST] <Evie> Yeah, he was all dead and stuff
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:15:12 PM EST] <Shiral> And thank goodness, it didn't happen in hot weather
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:15:15 PM EST] <judyward> Yes, it is, Evie!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:15:20 PM EST] <KK> I can't decide whether that's better worst than the time I got into my bed at a church camp, felt a sharp sting on the side of my knee, brushed it and put my knee back down on what turned out to be a black widow spider. I think I must have set a new world record for getting out of a top bunk quickly. And we had to turn out the bedclothes to find and kill said spider. I was not amused. a
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:15:29 PM EST] Join Bee (Mibbit@7F791F.1DE43C.7A71FB.9F745D) has joined this channel.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:15:37 PM EST] <Jemler> hi bee
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:15:43 PM EST] <Evie> Our Youth pastor wanted to have a proper send-off for the critter, but it was cold outside, so they ended up just dumping it in the bin. :-D
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:15:50 PM EST] <KK> Hi, Bee.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:15:52 PM EST] <judyward> Hi, Bee
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:15:55 PM EST] <Evie> Ow, KK!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:15:57 PM EST] <Bee> Hi Jemler and all
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:15:58 PM EST] <Shiral> I think that would put me off camping for a long time, KK
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:16:04 PM EST] <Derynifank> Did you have to go to the emergency room. Thought they were poison
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:16:08 PM EST] <Shiral> Hi KK
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:16:11 PM EST] <judyward> Did you get an infection from the bite
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:16:17 PM EST] <Derynifank> Hi Bee
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:16:19 PM EST] <Evie> Yeah, I'd prefer the dead squirrel. At least it was non-venomous.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:16:43 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi Bee.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:16:43 PM EST] <Bee> what happend, KK? ssomeone bit you?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:16:48 PM EST] <Jemler> while burying the squirrel "in the name of the Father, the Son, and into the he goes."
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:16:50 PM EST] <bynw> i think the dead tree rat is better than the live black widow any day
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:17:02 PM EST] <Shiral> I do too!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:17:07 PM EST] <Evie> Black widow spider, Bee
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:17:23 PM EST] <Bee> Ouch!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:17:33 PM EST] <Shiral> All's well that ends well there, since clearly you did not die, KK
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:17:43 PM EST] <KK> I think so. They washed the bite and gave me an antihistamine. No icky after effects, thank goodness, but it did sting and itch for a bit.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:17:55 PM EST] <Jemler> unless you're a ghost writer?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:18:06 PM EST] <Derynifank> Did you have any ill effects from the bite?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:18:07 PM EST] <Bee> I assume it wasn't letha, unless KK is chatting from the afterlife.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:18:12 PM EST] <judyward> I bet it did sting & itch! Lucky it didn't get infected!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:18:20 PM EST] * DesertRose loads the catapult with an octopus and launches it at Jemler.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:18:29 PM EST] <Shiral> When I've met KK at Cons, she appears to be very much alive. =o)
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:19:00 PM EST] <judyward> Cons...one of these days I'll make it to one.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:19:03 PM EST] <DesertRose> BRB
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:19:17 PM EST] <Evie> Anyway, the squirrel was actually not the worst part of the weekend. That was my battery giving up the ghost completely when I was heading back home. Though fortunately that happened in a Walmart parking lot, so I was able to get it jump started and could drive half a mile to the nearest auto parts
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:19:17 PM EST] <Evie> store in the chain DH is still technically working for (only he just works the occasional weekend now as an on-call employee if they need a substitute), so i was able to get a new battery using his employee discount.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:19:57 PM EST] <Derynifank> Glad there was a silver lining there
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:19:58 PM EST] <KK> That was fortunate.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:20:11 PM EST] <Evie> The battery was more expensive than I'd really budgeted for this weekend. The squirrel, on the other hand, was free. :-D
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:20:21 PM EST] <Shiral> Very discouraging when the battery goes "click click"
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:20:26 PM EST] <bynw> i was gonna say why go to an auto parts store when you are at a walmart ... it's got everything just probably not the discount
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:20:35 PM EST] <Derynifank> KK did your DH ever find his cell phone?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:20:43 PM EST] <Evie> Because why pay full price when you can pay half price for one?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:20:44 PM EST] <Shiral> DOes it count if the Squirrel wasn't something you'd planned on? =o)
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:20:58 PM EST] <bynw> Evie, yeah it makes sense after the DH part
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:21:29 PM EST] <Derynifank> I think it disappeared in the last snowstorm
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:21:45 PM EST] <Evie> Well, the squirrel at least made an amusing topic of conversation the next day, and I discovered the other ladies of the vestry are a lot easier to freak out than I am, apparently. LOL!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:22:16 PM EST] <KK> Yes he did. It had slipped into the crack between the center console and the edge of the seat in his car, and he was able to spot it the next morning when there was light.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:22:29 PM EST] <Derynifank> Yay
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:22:32 PM EST] <bynw> yay for Scott
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:22:45 PM EST] <Bee> someone fill me in please on the incident of the squirrel?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:22:47 PM EST] <KK> Amen!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:22:48 PM EST] <Evie> Yay for DH finding his phone! I've lost mine there also before. It's hard to see it down there
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:22:57 PM EST] <Shiral> It just thought it was playing hide and seek. =o)
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:23:07 PM EST] <KK> Yeah, in the dark, plus it's black.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:23:23 PM EST] <bynw> bee, its really long ... you will proably have to read the log after the chat to get the full picture of it
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:23:25 PM EST] <Jemler> bee, i have the log. it will be saced at rc.com
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:23:33 PM EST] <KK> Bee, Evie found a dead squirrel under the pillows on her bed at a church retreat.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:23:35 PM EST] <Shiral> Not a great combination when you're trying to locate it at night
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:23:47 PM EST] <Bee> ok thanks. I can wait.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:24:00 PM EST] <Evie> Short version, Bee: I was in a campground cabin, and there was a dead squirrel under my pillows. Long version: Scroll up to read the last several minutes of chat (or check the transcript later). :-D
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:24:13 PM EST] <KK> No. And of course, I wasn't trying to call it while he was out there looking, so it didn't ring.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:24:40 PM EST] <Shiral> Glad it didn't get eaten by snow plows though
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:24:48 PM EST] <Derynifank> Bee you need to read the whole thing to really appreciate it
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:24:52 PM EST] <Bee> I had trouble logging in to chat. My new computer is slow and has trouble opening pages.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:24:57 PM EST] <bynw> Bee wasn't logged in during that story so she wouldnt be able to scroll up on IRC
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:25:13 PM EST] <Evie> I always have someone try to call my phone when it's lost, since often I find it by hearing the ring.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:25:36 PM EST] <Evie> Ah, OK
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:25:42 PM EST] <Derynifank> That's a good idea unless the battery dies
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:25:48 PM EST] <bynw> Evie, that doesnt always work. since my phone is always on silent so its not going to ring
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:25:52 PM EST] <Evie> Or if the ringer is on mute
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:25:53 PM EST] <KK> That's true, Shiral. I'd forgotten that we'd just had a big snow. But this time, we both parked our cars in our garages before the snow got properly started. The snow plow must've come through around 0830, but we didn't hear a thing.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:25:56 PM EST] <Shiral> I lost my previous iPhone in an Uber driver's car.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:26:10 PM EST] <KK> Oh, no!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:26:11 PM EST] <Evie> I usually have mine on vibrate, though, so I can hear the rattling even if it doesn't ring
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:26:45 PM EST] <KK> Yeah, we both ring and vibrate. More change of being alerted to a call, especially if there's background noise.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:26:51 PM EST] <Shiral> Fortunately, I have the Find my Phone app and was able to call him. He returned it the next day.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:27:06 PM EST] <Derynifank> That's good
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:27:12 PM EST] <Bee> good news
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:27:45 PM EST] <Shiral> Alas....AFTER I'd bought a new one. But the old one was getting old and slow and cranky.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:28:20 PM EST] <KK> So, that was the Universe telling you it was time for a new one.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:28:25 PM EST] <Derynifank> Phones do like to play hide and seek. And I have been known to leave mine in the car overnight. Didn't have that problem whenthey had to be connected to a line
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:28:55 PM EST] <bynw> mine is my alarm clock so it cant be left places
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:28:56 PM EST] <Shiral> I lost my previous iPod by sending it through the washing machine by mistake. That was a DEAD iPod.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:29:03 PM EST] <DesertRose> Oops
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:29:14 PM EST] <Derynifank> But it was clean
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:29:18 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> Mine too bynw
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:29:26 PM EST] <Shiral> Really oops! It was very clean. But entirely non-functional.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:30:20 PM EST] <Shiral> And I really rely on my iPod for sanity
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:30:21 PM EST] <DesertRose> If it were something larger than an iPod, it could have become a paperweight and a monument to the principle of "Check all pockets before throwing laundry in the washer." :D
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:30:58 PM EST] <Derynifank> Since the advent of cell phones have you noticed it's impossible to find a pay phone. Tough for those who can't afford cees
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:31:21 PM EST] <Shiral> My mom lost an iPhone in a toilet. (Fortunately only with clean water in the bowl) There was no reviving that baby, either.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:32:04 PM EST] <Derynifank> Phones lead a ery adventurous life
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:32:07 PM EST] <Shiral> And where is Superman supposed to change?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:32:11 PM EST] <Jemler> bobbing for apples.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:32:33 PM EST] <Bee> How can clark Kent become Superman now that phone booths are no more?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:32:39 PM EST] <Jemler> in a rotating door, like in the movie.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:32:43 PM EST] <KK> Good question.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:32:45 PM EST] <Evie> While at the retreat, I made this wardrobe for my Young Minerva McGonagall figure: https://flic.kr/p/2cMN2iT
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:33:20 PM EST] <DesertRose> The men's loo? (For Clark Kent's costume change)
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:33:32 PM EST] <Derynifank> Love it, really chic!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:33:33 PM EST] <judyward> What a cute outfit!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:33:41 PM EST] <Bee> Impressive, Evie. What era is she from?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:33:53 PM EST] <DesertRose> I keep picturing Dame Maggie Smith in her early career in that outfit!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:33:56 PM EST] <Evie> I've had several friends at church say they want a human-sized version of that cloche hat
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:34:06 PM EST] <Shiral> She was very chic in her non-Hogwart's teaching robes
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:34:11 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> Yes DF, and the fact alters the challenges for storytelling. If one needs a character to be out of touch, one has to drain the power or get it wet instead of scrambling for pocket change.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:34:11 PM EST] <Evie> 1920s. Fantastic Beasts films era.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:34:24 PM EST] <Derynifank> Cloche hats were all the rage in the roaring twenties
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:34:49 PM EST] <Shiral> Haven't seen the Fantastic Beasts movie, yet
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:34:49 PM EST] <DesertRose> I love fashion hats.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:35:05 PM EST] <DesertRose> Sadly my noggin plus my hair means that almost no women's fashion hats actually fit my head. :(
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:35:19 PM EST] <Evie> I got the pattern from that one off an Instructables tutorial for a person-sized version.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:35:34 PM EST] <Evie> And there is a link in the page for how to alter the sizing
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:35:44 PM EST] Quit KK (~49ab39c5@OWIRCN-1bdd9d77.org) has left this server (Quit: CGI:IRC (EOF)).
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:35:46 PM EST] <Shiral> Hats for women with tiny braincases. I need a bigger hat too
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:35:50 PM EST] <Derynifank> Some people look great in hats and others don't. Unfortunately I'm one of the don'ts
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:35:56 PM EST] <Jemler> nite kk?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:35:58 PM EST] <DesertRose> But actual hats, like a cloche or a Jackie Kennedy pillbox or those pretty-but-huge wide brimmed numbers from the early 1900's.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:36:01 PM EST] <Evie> It's basically cut and sewn from high quality felt (the original, that is).

[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:36:15 PM EST] <Bee> rehi KK

[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:36:24 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> Rehi KK
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:36:28 PM EST] <DesertRose> Fascinators just look silly for the most part.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:36:31 PM EST] <Shiral> Poof! Here she is. Were you testing the Transfer portal, KK?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:36:37 PM EST] <Derynifank> wb KK
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:36:38 PM EST] <KK> Wow, typing along and must've reached too far to the left--kicked myself right out of chat.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:36:49 PM EST] <DesertRose> I look good in hats, when I can find them to fit my ridiculous skull.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:36:49 PM EST] <Evie> Oops!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:37:23 PM EST] <Evie> With this pattern, the poster said that you can stretch it larger by wetting it and fitting it to one's head while it is still damp.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:37:33 PM EST] <DesertRose> I had a pretty wide-brimmed straw hat in my adolescent years. My grandmother gave me a hat pin for it (which I still have), and I wore it to several weddings.

[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:08 PM EST] <Derynifank> But from doll to people size wouod be quite a stretch
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:11 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> Hello Jerusha
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:15 PM EST] <Derynifank> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:20 PM EST] <jerusha> Hi BtE
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:22 PM EST] <Evie> The tutorial was made for people
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:32 PM EST] <Shiral> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:38 PM EST] <Bee> I once had a lovely pink hat. what's that filmy material hatmakers use?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:40 PM EST] <jerusha> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:44 PM EST] <Evie> I just made a mini version of it
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:46 PM EST] <judyward> Hi, Jerusha
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:49 PM EST] <Derynifank> Tulle I think
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:50 PM EST] <Shiral> Tulle, maybe?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:51 PM EST] <DesertRose> Tulle? For the veil?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:54 PM EST] <jerusha> Hi Judyward
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:38:59 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:39:06 PM EST] <DesertRose> Three of us all guessing the same fabric type.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:39:12 PM EST] <Evie> hi Jerusha
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:39:16 PM EST] <jerusha> Sorry to be late: family dinner and puppy playtime
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:39:21 PM EST] <Bee> TULLE OR CHIFFON. NO VEIL, BUT A WIDE BRIM.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:39:24 PM EST] <Shiral> We're the Tulle Triplets, then
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:39:25 PM EST] <DesertRose> Food and puppies are awesome.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:39:40 PM EST] <KK> I know the stuff you mean, ind of like fine straw but with bigger holes. There's a special name for it.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:39:43 PM EST] <Bee> OOPS didin't mean to shout
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:39:45 PM EST] <Derynifank> Puppy playtime sounds great
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:39:46 PM EST] <DesertRose> Chiffon is so lightweight I'm not sure it'd hold up to making a hat.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:39:50 PM EST] <jerusha> Yes, although since I cooked the food, maybe not so much
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:40:04 PM EST] <Evie> Buckram?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:40:09 PM EST] <Shiral> Raffia, maybe
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:40:10 PM EST] <DesertRose> Buckram is stiff, though.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:40:16 PM EST] <DesertRose> Raffia might be it.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:40:20 PM EST] <Shiral> Tati sends everyone her purrs
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:40:24 PM EST] <Bee> There may have been a wire frame.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:40:30 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi Tatiana (and Dmitri, wherever he is).
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:40:31 PM EST] * jerusha offers a scritch
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:40:39 PM EST] <Evie> Yeah, I was thinking about what adds stiffness to the hat beneath whatever decorative fabric it's made from.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:40:41 PM EST] <DesertRose> Carys has been periodically coming to demand lap time and petting.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:40:41 PM EST] <Derynifank> I thought the tulle was more decoration than substance
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:40:44 PM EST] <Shiral> He's in my bedroom having a digestive nap
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:41:07 PM EST] <DesertRose> Tulle would be at least a LITTLE more structured than chiffon.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:41:18 PM EST] * bynw gives all the kitties happy scritches and for those that like them, belly rubs
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:41:30 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> Wimsey is napping on my right arm. Makes me a slower typist
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:41:34 PM EST] <DesertRose> That's buckram, Evie, the thing that helps the hat keep its shape.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:41:51 PM EST] <Evie> Yep. As I said above. :-)
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:41:56 PM EST] <DesertRose> Carys got a new water fountain for my birthday.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:42:02 PM EST] * Jemler tosses catnip into the chatroom
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:42:11 PM EST] <Shiral> Dmitri must have heard me typing about him. He's here too, now
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:42:16 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL, hi Dmitri.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:42:20 PM EST] <jerusha> Hi Dmitri
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:42:24 PM EST] <Evie> It's your birthday, but SHE gets the presents? That's a sweet deal for her!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:42:30 PM EST] <Bee> Hi, all kitties
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:42:36 PM EST] <Shiral> Very sensitive hearing you know. =o)
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:42:43 PM EST] * bynw shines a laser pen light about the channel to see how many cats will chase it
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:42:45 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL, well, it saves me the money of buying a new fountain, and it saves me the labor of washing water bowls as well as food bowls.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:42:50 PM EST] <Evie> Luke and Gigi are having Kitty Crazy Time over a squeaky cat toy.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:43:05 PM EST] <KK> What I'm thinking of isn't as stiff as buckram. But it can be dampened and molded to shape.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:43:16 PM EST] <DesertRose> And my mom gave me the choice of the new fountain for Fuzzbutt or a necklace I'd asked for because the previous chian on which I had the relevant pendant broke during the move last year.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:43:16 PM EST] * jerusha tries to ignore the laser pen light
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:43:46 PM EST] <Bee> The material was sheer, whatever it was.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:43:48 PM EST] <DesertRose> And I opted for the kitty fountain because it's more urgent than a chain for a pendant I don't wear that often, though it has sentimental value to me because it belonged to my grandmother (Mom's mother).
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:43:49 PM EST] <Evie> Ooh! I want to make a new magic wand around a laser pointer to drive Gigi crazy and give her a distraction from trying to steal my wand.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:43:57 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:44:01 PM EST] <KK> It's milliner's something, I think.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:44:42 PM EST] <bynw> all cats must chase the red bug from the laser pen
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:45:13 PM EST] <DesertRose> I guess I need to get a new laser pointer. The one I have seems to have a dead light bulb or something; changing the battery doesn't fix the problem.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:45:29 PM EST] <Evie> I want to build a new magic wand similar to this one, but with a laser pointer at the core of it so Gigi stops trying to steal this one. https://flic.kr/p/RF3Edb
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:45:50 PM EST] <Bee> Melantha's getting ooo old to chase things. Shewaits for me to bring it within her reach, then she pounces.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:45:59 PM EST] <DesertRose> But the one I have has five or six interchangeable tips so it can shine a plain dot, a bug, or several other things I can't remember at the moment.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:45:59 PM EST] <Shiral> https://www.pinterest.com/pin/100134791694265667/ Get a load of THIS hat
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:46:04 PM EST] <jerusha> Cool wand, Evie
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:46:28 PM EST] <Derynifank> that sounds really cool
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:46:34 PM EST] <Shiral> I had a laser pointer for the cats, but I think it went bye bye during my move
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:46:35 PM EST] <jerusha> Scary hat
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:46:42 PM EST] <Evie> Thanks! It's mostly paper, with some papier mache added for stiffness, chopsticks inside it for added rigidity, paint, and hot glue.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:47:07 PM EST] <DesertRose> What in the entire heck is that hat supposed to be?!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:47:15 PM EST] <Evie> Medusa hat. :-D
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:47:45 PM EST] <jerusha> Yep
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:47:50 PM EST] <KK> That's the material I was thinking of! What's it called?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:47:54 PM EST] <Derynifank> wow, how do you get your head through the door
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:48:08 PM EST] <DesertRose> Fuzzy photo, but here's the fountain: https://www.instagram.com/p/BslLQ5snZGi/
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:48:49 PM EST] <Evie> I have a serious case of Want for this hat: https://throwthemanualinasupernovawordpresscom.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/unhliqp5_400x400.jpg
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:49:22 PM EST] <jerusha> That is a cool hat. Part Robin Hood, part Femme fatalle
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:49:24 PM EST] <KK> That's a cool hat.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:49:29 PM EST] <Derynifank> looks like a mata hari hat
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:49:29 PM EST] <DesertRose> That is a very cool hat.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:49:44 PM EST] <Evie> Does Carys like the fountain?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:49:46 PM EST] <Goatmistress> That is nice.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:49:54 PM EST] <Shiral> DR, I know....Not terribly useful AS a hat
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:50:06 PM EST] <KK> I like Catys' fountain.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:50:16 PM EST] <Evie> [hat] Yeah, that character is in 1920s Paris, so that's meant to be a haute couture witch's hat.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:50:18 PM EST] <jerusha> Somehow I can see the Medusa hat stuck on top of Carys's fountaing
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:50:27 PM EST] <DesertRose> While we're on silly hats: https://postimg.cc/WqtQvWRJ
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:50:28 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> Quite striking hat.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:50:59 PM EST] <Shiral> Okay, yes, that's a silly hat. =o)
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:51:16 PM EST] <DesertRose> She does. I took it out of the box, washed all the parts, installed the filter, filled it with clean water, and stuck it on her Disney Princesses place mat where her old (leaky) fountain used to live, at which point she sniffed it for about two seconds and then started to drink.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:51:16 PM EST] <Derynifank> are you trying to be a dinosaur
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:51:21 PM EST] <Shiral> However the 1920's Witch hat is very chich
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:51:25 PM EST] <Shiral> CHIC.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:51:52 PM EST] <DesertRose> It's a stupid hat I bought on St. Patrick's Day of either 1997 or 1998, the first and so far only time in my life I've gotten drunk enough to be hung over the next day, if that explains anything. :D
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:52:14 PM EST] <Derynifank> LOL
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:52:21 PM EST] <Shiral> I've never been much of a hat person, myself
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:52:45 PM EST] <jerusha> I like hats, but they are usually too big
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:52:53 PM EST] <Shiral> They make my head all sweaty and itchy
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:53:02 PM EST] <DesertRose> I was actually jealous of my mom and grandmother for having lived when you (socially) had to wear a hat.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:53:10 PM EST] <jerusha> I end up balancing them off my nose
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:53:15 PM EST] * bynw doesnt do hats
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:53:30 PM EST] <Bee> My bike helmet is mor comfortable witha hat under it. fuzzy in winter, baseball cap in summer
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:53:31 PM EST] <DesertRose> The straw hat I had in my teen years didn't make my head sweat, because it was natural straw of a sufficiently loose weave to allow for airflow.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:53:33 PM EST] <bynw> i dont even like ball caps
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:53:39 PM EST] <Evie> I love hats, but rarely wear them
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:53:53 PM EST] <DesertRose> I have the opposite problem, jerusha; I can hardly find a women's fashion hat large enough for my head.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:54:04 PM EST] <Shiral> I wear a ball cap more to shade my eyes than cover my head
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:54:10 PM EST] <jerusha> In winter, I wear a toque. It's too cold not to.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:54:28 PM EST] <Derynifank> there are some very handsome hats for men. I have an 11 yr old grandson who is addicted to fedors and has a collection
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:54:41 PM EST] <Derynifank> fedoras
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:55:06 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> I don't mind a driving cap or a baseball cap. Mater had skin cancer on her forehead years ago and used to remind me to wear a hat and sunscreen/
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:55:26 PM EST] <jerusha> Good point, BtE
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:55:35 PM EST] <Shiral> If i lived in a cold climate, I'm sure I'd feel differently about hats
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:55:51 PM EST] * jerusha nods sagely
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:55:56 PM EST] <Bee> "They throw their fedoras wherever the floor is/ Mexicans dance on their hats."
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:56:09 PM EST] <Evie> I wear knit caps during cold weather
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:56:15 PM EST] <bynw> i live in iowa and its 24.7 degrees out right now and i dont like hats
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:56:16 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> Yeah, I have a knit hat for winter too.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:56:34 PM EST] <Derynifank> Haha. where did you find that?
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:56:42 PM EST] <KK> I like the way hats look, but I hate hat hair, so I rARELY WEAR THEM, EVEN IN WINTER.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:57:01 PM EST] <jerusha> I refuse to freeze for fashion
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:57:10 PM EST] <Evie> Like this set that I made recently: https://www.flickr.com/gp/9573389@N08/866n0c
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:57:21 PM EST] <KK> There's that reaching too far left again. Didn't mean to hit the caps lock. But I guess it's better than kicking myself out of chat.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:57:26 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> I have a Panama hat for special occasions.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:57:50 PM EST] <jerusha> Very nice, Evie
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:57:51 PM EST] <Bee> Old parody song (by Allan Sherman?)
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:57:58 PM EST] <Evie> Thank you!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:58:06 PM EST] <Shiral> I bought a hat in Hawaii to keep the sun off my face once. But it stayed behind in the airport once I realized what a nuisance it would be to get it back home other than wearing it clear back across the Pacific
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:58:32 PM EST] <Derynifank> love that set Evie
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:58:40 PM EST] <Evie> Or put it in the overhead area
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:58:47 PM EST] <KK> It could've lived in the overhead bin for the flight.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:59:01 PM EST] <Evie> Thank you, Derynifank. I wanted a Ravenclaw hat/scarf set in the book colors rather than the movie colors.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [7:59:31 PM EST] <Shiral> It was a cheapo thing I bought in Waikiki. So...I wasn't exactly distraught to leave it behind. I hope it served someone else who needed it more
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:00:06 PM EST] <Shiral> Overhead bins are where hats go to be crushed in my experience, given how crammed they usually are
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:00:26 PM EST] <jerusha> I was thinking the same, Shiral
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:00:57 PM EST] <Evie> When I went to the beach a few years ago, I found a lost sun hat in the parking lot (it looked like it blew off someone's head and ended up landing on our car), and no one in the hotel claimed it, so it became mine for the rest of our vacation.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:01:02 PM EST] <Evie> I still have it.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:02:10 PM EST] <jerusha> There's nothing wrong with finding a home for a stray hat
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:02:11 PM EST] <judyward> I'm going to flake out early tonight. I think I'm coming down with a cold. Everyone have a great week!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:02:23 PM EST] <Jemler> nite judy
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:02:28 PM EST] <Shiral> night, Judy
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:02:30 PM EST] <bynw> night judy
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:02:34 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> Good night Judy
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:02:35 PM EST] <jerusha> Hope you avoid the cold, Judyward. Have a good week
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:02:36 PM EST] <Shiral> Stay well
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:02:48 PM EST] <judyward> 'night & thanks!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:02:55 PM EST] <Derynifank> hope you beat the cold judy, have a good week
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:02:58 PM EST] <DesertRose> G'night, judyward!

[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:03:16 PM EST] <Bee> I hope you feel better soon, Judy
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:03:29 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> His Grace just woke up.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:03:33 PM EST] <Shiral> There's been a horrid cold that has been circling the Library since before New Year's. I've been working to avoid it
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:04:05 PM EST] <jerusha> Colds are to be avoided whenever possible
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:04:08 PM EST] <KK> Cameron passed on his cold at Chr5istmas. Both Scott and I got it. Big cough with it, too. We're just now really over it.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:04:11 PM EST] <DesertRose> It's been an icky year for respiratory crud.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:04:19 PM EST] <Evie> Luke is here to say hello
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:04:23 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi Luke.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:04:26 PM EST] <jerusha> Hi Luke
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:04:28 PM EST] <Bee> HI luke
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:04:36 PM EST] <Shiral> Hi Luke
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:04:39 PM EST] <Derynifank> A wicked cold made the rounds here over christmas and refused to go away
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:04:46 PM EST] <jerusha> Glad you and Scott are better, KK
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:05:01 PM EST] <Evie> He's between me and the keyboard now, and Gigi is purring behind my head on the back of my chair
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:05:07 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL, kittehs.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:05:11 PM EST] <Shiral> Dmitri has just jumped down off the desk and walked away stiffly. I dared to hold him in a way he doesn't like
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:05:18 PM EST] <jerusha> You are surrounded
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:05:20 PM EST] <DesertRose> Oh noes!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:05:22 PM EST] <BalanceTheEnergies> yeah, I had friends who stayed home sick over the holidays
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:05:24 PM EST] <Evie> That is, she is on the back of my chair, not my head
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:05:28 PM EST] <Derynifank> scritches for the kitties
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:05:29 PM EST] <DesertRose> BRB
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:05:45 PM EST] <Shiral> Respiratory Crud has had a GREAT year. The people who get it have not
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:06:11 PM EST] <KK> I have Gus on my lap again, where he's been for most of the day. TOo cold to go outside.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:06:29 PM EST] <Shiral> Sensible cat to find the nearest warm lap
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:06:33 PM EST] <Derynifank> Smart cat
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:06:44 PM EST] <jerusha> Warm cat
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:06:55 PM EST] <Bee> we're still waiting for our first inch of snow here.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:07:18 PM EST] <jerusha> I could send you an extra two feet
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:07:20 PM EST] <KK> Yep. But on that note, I think I have to disturb him and go see about supper. See you guys next week.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:07:29 PM EST] <Evie> See you!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:07:36 PM EST] <jerusha> Nighters, KK. Thanks for coming

[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:07:46 PM EST] <Goatmistress> Take care
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:07:46 PM EST] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:07:48 PM EST] <bynw> night KK, thanks for coming
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:08:06 PM EST] <KK> No problem. You all take care and stay healthy!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:08:07 PM EST] <DesertRose> G'night, KK, thanks for coming. Have a good week!
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:08:09 PM EST] <Evie> And it's about time for me to forage for food. Not dead squirrel. ;-)
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:08:12 PM EST] <Bee> you too
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:08:28 PM EST] <jerusha> Eek at dead squirrel, Evie
[Sunday, January 13, 2019] [8:08:29 PM EST] Quit KK has left this server (Quit: CGI:IRC (EOF)).
"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.)
