[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:09 PM EST] <jerusha> Hi KK
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:13 PM EST] <drakensis> good evening
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:13 PM EST] * revanne sniffs appreciatively
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:17 PM EST] <Shiral> Hello KK
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:17 PM EST] <Jemler> revanne, Beauty in in the eye of the bee-holder
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:19 PM EST] * bynw looks at his comfy desk chair and still cant sit in it because there is a kitty in it
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:20 PM EST] <Jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:20 PM EST] <revanne> Hi KK
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:22 PM EST] <bynw> Hi KK
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:23 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi KK
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:28 PM EST] <revanne> Urghhh
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:31 PM EST] <Evie> Hello
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:46 PM EST] <KK> Hello, all.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:52 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi KK! You and yours feeling better, I hope
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:09:59 PM EST] * Shiral picks up Bynw's cat virtually to show him cats ARE detachable from chairs
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:10:34 PM EST] <bynw> no no no. i just spoil my baby 12 year old bengal kitty and get another chair
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:10:49 PM EST] <jerusha> We know who is in charge
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:10:51 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:11:04 PM EST] <DesertRose> I have to evict Carys from my desk chair at least five times a day.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:11:18 PM EST] <Shiral> As the cleaner of litter boxes and the filler of bowls, I retain my right to sit where I WANT to sit. After all, I am also the provider of warm laps
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:11:25 PM EST] <bynw> i do evict her sometimes, but not everytime
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:11:26 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yup
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:11:35 PM EST] <Evie> I just lift Gigi and swiftly sit while putting her back down on my lap
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:11:59 PM EST] <KK> Scott is improving, and may be coming home toward the end of the week. We no sooner knocked down the peritoneal infection then he developed a big bleed form a stomach ulcer he didn't know he had. But now <that's> taken care of, and hopefully the liver will now settle down.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:12:11 PM EST] <Shiral> Placing a cat in my lap never works. They jump down immediately. But if I let them come to me, things work out better
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:12:11 PM EST] <Evie> Oh no!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:12:17 PM EST] <DesertRose> It also helps (my cause) that there isn't actually another chair to sit in at my desk. The recliner and the stationary armchair are too far away, and the "other" desk chair is in my bedroom with my sewing machine. So out, cat, out.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:12:21 PM EST] <Evie> At least that happened while he was still there
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:12:22 PM EST] <jerusha> Good grief, KK
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:12:27 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yikes, KK!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:12:27 PM EST] <Shiral> Poor Scott and poor you
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:12:27 PM EST] <revanne> Oh goodness what a couple of weeks, KK
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:12:35 PM EST] <DesertRose> Poor Scott and poor you indeed.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:12:38 PM EST] <The_Bee> Melantha will climb in my lap, but she doesn't like to be picked up and put in my lap.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:12:55 PM EST] <Evie> How is your cold, KK?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:12:56 PM EST] <bynw> poor scott, hope he is all the way recovered by his bday next month
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:13:23 PM EST] <KK> I, on the other hand, have caught another cold, just like the one I had right after Christmas, so have been coughing and hacking and snurfing. And Mother is not settling well at her new residence; feeling betrayed, and can't believe this is where she's going to spend the rest of her life.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:13:34 PM EST] <DesertRose> :( KK
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:13:36 PM EST] <bynw> yeah my kitty doesnt like to be put in a lap ... it must be on her terms only
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:13:42 PM EST] <Shiral> Hard times, KK
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:13:43 PM EST] <Evie> :-(
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:13:53 PM EST] <jerusha> That happens a lot, KK
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:14:15 PM EST] <bynw> virtual hugs for you KK {{{ }}} you need them still
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:14:35 PM EST] <Shiral> Very grateful my mother picked where she wanted to be and moved there of her own accord. But you did your best to keep her at home for as long as you could, KK
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:14:44 PM EST] <DesertRose> It's been a nasty season for respiratory crud.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:14:51 PM EST] <revanne> That is so hard for you KK. My Mother in Law felt the same and it was very hard. Sympathy and prayers.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:15:30 PM EST] <KK> I know. And she just doesn't remember the talks we had beforehand, about why finances dictated a big change. I hope she'll get over it.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:15:59 PM EST] <jerusha> It may just take her a little more time
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:16:02 PM EST] <The_Bee> My mom stayed with my sister till a few months before her death.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:16:04 PM EST] <Shiral> I hope so. And I hope she'll find some new friends there that improve her feelings about it.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:16:22 PM EST] <KK> And I'm still running on fumes from my A-Fib and asthma issues. That doesn't help.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:16:30 PM EST] <drakensis> my grandmother had to go into a home about six months ago, but at least it was her decision and she was quite happy there
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:16:30 PM EST] <DesertRose> No, I bet not. Rest and take care of you!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:16:39 PM EST] <revanne> Having spent a great deal of my life looking after either children or elderly parents and in-laws, give me small children any day.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:16:57 PM EST] <Jemler> ok, i'll move in.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:17:04 PM EST] <Shiral> In the circumstances, we're glad you're stopping in to talk to us, today
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:17:13 PM EST] <revanne> Yes much appreciated
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:17:21 PM EST] <Evie> Yes
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:17:24 PM EST] <KK> You guys are rays of sunshine in an otherwises dreary day!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:17:27 PM EST] <DesertRose> Right, revanne?! I'd rather deal with a toddler over one of my parents yelling at me over something I can't change/fix any day of the week.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:17:27 PM EST] <Shiral> Hopefully we can be entertaining!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:17:28 PM EST] <jerusha> Yes
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:17:52 PM EST] * Shiral sends Kelric over to KK with a plate of bread and honey...oops, wait..
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:18:05 PM EST] <revanne> Maybe not...
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:18:07 PM EST] * Shiral takes the honey OUT of Kelric's hands first.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:18:15 PM EST] <DesertRose> In amusing kitty news, I had Carys' fishing pole toy out last week for her evening play time, and she jumped for the toy, misjudged her landing, and dipped the end of her tail into her water fountain. I dearly wish I'd been taking video.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:18:15 PM EST] <jerusha> My "yes" was for KK visiting; I won't promise to be entertaining
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:18:28 PM EST] <revanne> Poor Carys.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:18:34 PM EST] <bynw> at least the temps have improved it's almost 50F today. and the other week it was -50F with windchill
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:18:54 PM EST] <Shiral> I had a long session with a favorite fishing pole toy with my cats, this morning.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:18:55 PM EST] <DesertRose> She wasn't too fussed, honestly. She was far more interested in catching that dastardly toy than in wet tail fur that'll dry in a bit anyway. ;)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:19:09 PM EST] <jerusha> Our warmer temperatures have brought freezing drizzle. Yuk.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:19:12 PM EST] <Evie> It's been gloriously warm outside this weekend. I got some spray sealing done on my projects.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:19:19 PM EST] <Shiral> Pretty amazing it can be 100 degrees warmer, but STILL chilly!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:19:47 PM EST] <The_Bee> I find it difficult to get melantha to play with her toys.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:19:51 PM EST] <KK> On a more positive note, we received a nibble this week from a guy interested in the film rights to the Adept series. Keep positve thoughts, but remember this is only the first step. Still, one can dream.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:19:55 PM EST] <revanne> Demercia has bought a new climbing tree for he new kitty - actually it's more like a forest. She couldn't work out how to put it togehter so my DS has helpfully brought it home for us to do. How we are supposed to transport it back beats me. It's ginormous.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:20:07 PM EST] <bynw> that would be cool KK
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:20:12 PM EST] <Shiral> That would be very cool! Hope the nibble turns into a bite
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:20:12 PM EST] <revanne> Ooh sounds good.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:20:13 PM EST] <Evie> Although I seem to have made more work for myself now, because a company that makes seamless articulated dolls (i.e., no visible joints) has come out with a 1:12 scale doll in a price I can actually afford, so I just ordered one.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:20:38 PM EST] <The_Bee> Shall we start our virtual casting call again?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:20:40 PM EST] <KK> Sounds interesting.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:20:44 PM EST] <Evie> But unfortunately I own nothing in proper dollhouse 1:12 scale, so that means i will need to make or collect enough stuff to make her a proper roombox.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:21:17 PM EST] <Evie> Film nibble sounds promising. Any news on Lammas Night, or did that get shelved?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:21:21 PM EST] <revanne> Could she just be a hobbit?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:21:49 PM EST] <KK> Lammas is shelved for now, as the guy has let the option expire.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:21:58 PM EST] <Evie> She would be literally half the height of all my other dolls, and their furniture would be way too big for her.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:22:04 PM EST] <Evie> not to mention clothing!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:22:11 PM EST] * DesertRose says with heavy sarcasm, "Oh, no, guess I'll have to re-read the Adept series. What. A. Shame." ;)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:22:12 PM EST] <Evie> Well, darn
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:22:24 PM EST] <jerusha> Gee
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:22:31 PM EST] <revanne> A very little hobbit who shopped at a human thrift store?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:22:32 PM EST] <bynw> how horrible :D
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:22:33 PM EST] <Evie> At least now all the books are out on ebook format, yes?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:22:36 PM EST] <Shiral> Oh dear, Poooooor DR!! =o)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:22:43 PM EST] <KK> Of course, the Lammas material <is> sort of part of the Adept continuum....
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:22:45 PM EST] <DesertRose> I think so, now that the last two are in ebook now.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:22:57 PM EST] <Shiral> A bit of overlap, yes
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:23:11 PM EST] <revanne> I love Lammas night - though the ending made me cry. But it was very fitting.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:23:33 PM EST] <DesertRose> Lammas Night is my favorite of KK's outside the Deryni series.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:23:51 PM EST] <DesertRose> And I hear you about crying at the end.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:24:06 PM EST] <DesertRose> At least I didn't throw the book the way I did Camber the Heretic when Rhys dies.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:24:21 PM EST] <jerusha> That was a hard death to take
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:24:31 PM EST] <revanne> I might have if I had been reading someone else's book
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:24:42 PM EST] <revanne> If I hadn't rather
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:24:52 PM EST] <DesertRose> It was. It was so random (and realistic) and abrupt, and I love Rhys and Healers in general.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:25:12 PM EST] <Evie> Oh! That reminds me. Someone named "Rhyschenda" posted to a Facebook group I follow, and I asked her if her name was meant to be a merged form of Rhys and Richenda, and it turned out I had guessed right.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:25:27 PM EST] <The_Bee> I once played Evaine in an on-line RPG.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:25:28 PM EST] <jerusha> I like that
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:25:29 PM EST] <DesertRose> Carys says Hello and purrs at everyone. She will gratefully accept any scritches and/or treats anyone would like to offer her.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:25:42 PM EST] <jerusha> Scritches for Carys
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:25:43 PM EST] <revanne> Hi Carys
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:25:50 PM EST] <KK> Hello, Carys.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:25:57 PM EST] <revanne> That's a seriously cool name.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:26:34 PM EST] * The_Bee gives Carys virtual scritches.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:26:44 PM EST] <revanne> I'm glad I hadn't read the Deryni series before my DDs were born or one of them would have been Richenda. Which would have really worked as DH is Richard.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:26:44 PM EST] <DesertRose> It is, but speaking as someone with a slightly uncommon given name (who in turn named the Pod-Child a fairly common name with an unusual spelling), please have pity on the poor person who will have to spell it for everyone their whole life. :D
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:27:11 PM EST] <jerusha> I must drop off and call my Dad. KK, hope you and Scott recover quickly
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:27:13 PM EST] <Evie> I just wasn't expecting to see it in a Harry Potter related page. It wouldn't have surprised me seeing it come up as a user name on our forum. :-D
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:27:18 PM EST] <revanne> But I suspect they would not have thanked me.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:27:21 PM EST] <DesertRose> G'night, jerusha.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:27:29 PM EST] <revanne> Goodnight Jerusha
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:27:31 PM EST] <bynw> night jerusha
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:27:36 PM EST] <Jemler> nite jerusha
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:27:38 PM EST] <KK> Thanks, Jerusha.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:27:47 PM EST] <Jemler> evie, Fantasy?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:27:54 PM EST] <The_Bee> nogiters, Jerusha
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:28:03 PM EST] <The_Bee> nighters too
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:28:10 PM EST] <DesertRose> No, it's unusual for a Harry Potter username, but there's a good bit of us here in the Castle who are also HP fans. :D
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:28:17 PM EST] <Evie> DR, Nora is apparently making a comeback. It was surprisingly high up on a list of the most popular current girls names. Up in the top 50, I think.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:28:54 PM EST] <The_Bee> My grand-niece Eleanor is called Nora.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:29:04 PM EST] <revanne> DD2 is Katherine but she always goes by Kate.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:29:06 PM EST] <DesertRose> It's not a name that ever entirely falls out of favor, but it's uncommon in my generaiton, anyway.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:29:35 PM EST] <DesertRose> I dated a guy whose mom was Nora, but in her case it was short for Leonora, although almost nobody called her by her full name.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:30:05 PM EST] <KK> A lot of syllables for a relatively short name.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:30:06 PM EST] <DesertRose> His dad used to joke that if his son married me, they'd both have wives named Nora.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:31:06 PM EST] <Shiral> Darn, missed Jerusha. But it was Dmitri's fault for distracting me
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:31:10 PM EST] <Evie> There's also Norah
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:31:13 PM EST] <DesertRose> Nora is my full first name, and I used to hate it (precisely BECAUSE it's not a common name in Gen X), but as I got older, more family members told me about the great-aunt in whose honor I was so named, and I wound up deciding it was cool to be named for her.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:31:14 PM EST] <The_Bee> My Grand-nievce is Eleanor Cady Kepler--for Eleanor Roosevelt, Clizabeth Cady Stanton, and Nora Charlesfrom the Thin Man movies.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:31:53 PM EST] <DesertRose> Evie, I get people thinking that's how my name is spelled. It probably doesn't help that my middle initial is H.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:32:15 PM EST] <Evie> No, that would be even more confusing
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:32:56 PM EST] Part KK (~49ab39c5@OWIRCN-1bdd9d77.org) has left this channel.

[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:33:34 PM EST] <The_Bee> Wb, KK.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:33:49 PM EST] <DesertRose> Although I have a funny story about my middle name. It sounds more like a surname than a given name, and thus a lot of people think that it's my maiden name. The most memorable instance of people thinking it was my maiden name was a medical office staffer who asked what my middle name had been before I got married.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:34:21 PM EST] <DesertRose> It was 1988. I was twelve. And for once, l'esprit du escalier was NOT with me, and I had the presence to pop off with, "Please check my date of birth."
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:34:32 PM EST] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:34:34 PM EST] <The_Bee> Now you've got me wondering what it is, DR.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:34:39 PM EST] <DesertRose> Rehi KK.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:34:53 PM EST] <KK> My screen has gone wonky, and I was trying to get back to the original. I can't ensmallen the screen, and my clock has disappeared. I think it's related to having overreached my A key, and then it went to an odd screen I'd never seen before.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:35:24 PM EST] <DesertRose> Check your PMs, Bee. :)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:36:15 PM EST] <KK> I'm going to log out, restart the computer, and sign on again, and see if that fixes it.

[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:38:17 PM EST] <Bee> Hi Demercia
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:38:28 PM EST] <Demercia> Hi. Finally made it to chat.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:38:29 PM EST] <Evie> Hi Demercia
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:38:37 PM EST] <KK> I only had the option of logging ogg, with control alt delete. And then I was partway started. Anyway, it worked.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:38:41 PM EST] <revanne> Hi Demercia
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:38:42 PM EST] <DesertRose> Oh, DerynifanK popped in earlier; she's at a Super Bowl party tonight (mostly for the party, not the sport), and she said to say hi.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:39:05 PM EST] <KK> I was watching Kitten Bowl earlier. Some cute kittens.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:39:22 PM EST] <Demercia> Glad to see my arrival hasnít booted Revanne out.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:39:24 PM EST] <Bee> Demercia, i hear you have a new cat.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:39:32 PM EST] <DesertRose> Demercia's nickname reminded me of DerynifanK's because of the IRC function wherein you can type the first few letters of someone's username and then hit the tab key to autocomplete the rest of the name.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:39:35 PM EST] <KK> New cat?!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:39:54 PM EST] <Demercia> yes, Theo, heís a rescue - partially sighted.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:40:05 PM EST] * DesertRose sits on her hands because it's Demercia's news, but KITTY!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:40:12 PM EST] <Bee> blind in one eye?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:40:39 PM EST] <Shiral> Kitten Bowl is one Bowl I'd be interested in =o)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:40:42 PM EST] <Demercia> Yes KK I had to have my lovely ginger put to sleep in October and there was a rescue waiting at the vets for a home
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:40:46 PM EST] <DesertRose> Puppy Bowl is cute too.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:41:05 PM EST] <Evie> Luke is here to purr at everyone and impede my typing
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:41:20 PM EST] <DesertRose> Carys would beg to differ (re: Puppy Bowl). ;)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:41:22 PM EST] <revanne> Hi Luke
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:41:25 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi Luke.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:41:29 PM EST] <revanne> LOL
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:41:31 PM EST] <Shiral> Dmitri is behind my monitor looking at me reproachfully over the top of the screen because he's hungry
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:41:38 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:42:10 PM EST] <Demercia> no Bee. The vet thinks his mother had something while pregnant that affects cats like German measles does women. Since he canít read an eye test we donít know how much he can see but seems to be only light and shade
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:42:15 PM EST] <Bee> I'd like Puppy Bowl better without the voice0over commentary. Let us enjoy the puppies' antics.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:42:17 PM EST] <KK> Lucky Theo!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:42:18 PM EST] <Shiral> Tatiana is more of an Act Cute, but get between her and her keyboard by any means necessary
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:42:38 PM EST] <Shiral> Theo is indeed lucky to have a loving new home!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:42:45 PM EST] <Demercia> how he survived lining rough for a bit we donít know.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:42:47 PM EST] <KK> Not because of his vision, but because he got a loving forever home!

[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:43:40 PM EST] <Shiral> I'm sure he finds a nice warm new home with people that feed him a big improvement
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:44:45 PM EST] <Demercia> heís Theo because a friend thought he was a Teddy,and Teddy is short for Theodore which means gift from God. Though when he got the chicken carcass out of the pan I wondered if he had really come from the other place

[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:45:38 PM EST] <revanne> I din't realise I'd been booted for a bit until no-one was saying anything.

[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:46:04 PM EST] <Evie> Shhh, everyone, let's all be quiet and see how long it takes revanne to notice! ;-)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:46:33 PM EST] <Demercia> no one can replace the lovely B who I had had for 17 years but he is his own personality and a house without a cat was just awful
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:46:35 PM EST] <Shiral> Ninja kitty!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:46:43 PM EST] <revanne> :-,
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:46:48 PM EST] * DesertRose pokes Evie with one of Carys' paw-nails.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:47:06 PM EST] <Evie> :-D
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:47:15 PM EST] <Shiral> Can a house without a cat truly be called a home, if the human resident is not allergic?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:47:42 PM EST] <revanne> According to our dog, most definitely.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:47:46 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:47:56 PM EST] <Demercia> did you hear of the soccer match here yesterday which was stopped for a few minutes because there was a pitch invasion. By a small black cat.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:48:03 PM EST] <Shiral> Well, of COURSE a dog would say something like that. =o)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:48:07 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:48:15 PM EST] <Demercia> absolutely not Shiral
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:48:20 PM EST] <DesertRose> Because a cat
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:48:41 PM EST] <DesertRose> Because a cat's presence is infinitely cuter than football (of either variety).
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:48:42 PM EST] <revanne> Why do you need a small furry thing when you have a large furry thing i.e. ME
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:48:53 PM EST] <Demercia> Theo took a very dim view of Revanneís dog when he came at Christmas
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:49:30 PM EST] <Bee> mELANTA IS DEFINITELY ANT-DOG.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:49:36 PM EST] <revanne> She was only trying to say hello and the little furry thing kept running away
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:49:38 PM EST] <Bee> oops caps lock
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:51:33 PM EST] <Demercia> Itís funny but he doesnít usually sleep on my bed but he does if I have a house guest. I wonder if he suspects them of smuggling a dog in?😀
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:52:45 PM EST] <Bee> He feels safer close to you.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:53:21 PM EST] <Shiral> Chilly nights at my house are two blanket cat nights
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:53:58 PM EST] <Demercia> 😀
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:54:26 PM EST] <Bee> Sshiral, are you safe from fires, floods and mudslides?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:55:06 PM EST] <Shiral> No fires right now, Bee. We're having winter storms. They are having some problems with mudslides in the areas where the worst fires were this year, though.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:55:21 PM EST] <Shiral> Where I am it's more wet and windy.

[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:58:00 PM EST] <Shiral> Dmitri is a wind instrument in a cat suit. The more I squeeze him, the louder he gets
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:58:09 PM EST] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:58:11 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:58:19 PM EST] <DesertRose> The cat-pipes?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:58:25 PM EST] <Shiral> Yup
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:58:35 PM EST] <Shiral> In the key of "Put me down NOW!"
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:58:39 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [5:58:46 PM EST] <Demercia> Lol
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:00:57 PM EST] <DesertRose> Carys is doing her "but I can see the bottom of my food bowl so you should put more food in it" dance.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:01:31 PM EST] <DesertRose> Never mind I put down her supper about an hour ago.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:02:02 PM EST] <Shiral> Yeah, the "Kitty Supper" intensity is turned on around here.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:02:05 PM EST] <DesertRose> So she's not getting more food until I go to bed. (I split her daily ration of kibble into four servings: breakfast, lunch, supper, and bedtime.)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:03:03 PM EST] <Bee> Melantha has two full food bowls, but she just wants treats.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:05:14 PM EST] <Bee> KK, you've gone quiet. Are you feeling tired?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:05:36 PM EST] <Evie> We all seem to have gone quiet
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:05:55 PM EST] <Evie> I was about to think maybe I got booted without realizing it, when I saw your question pop up
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:06:27 PM EST] <DesertRose> I'm incapussitated by a cat who thinks if she's sweet enough, maybe I'll put down more kitty food.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:06:45 PM EST] <Demercia> Perhaps our brains have all turned to be ice.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:06:51 PM EST] <DesertRose> She's very sweet and cuddly, but she is a fat kitty and does not need extra food.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:07:25 PM EST] <Shiral> BRB, I'm going to give in and feed my two pygmy lions
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:08:03 PM EST] <Demercia> I'm going to say goodnight, itís gone 11 here and the alarm goes off at 6.30. The alarm with 4 paws and whiskers that is, but I have to be up then anyway....
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:08:15 PM EST] <DesertRose> G'night, Demercia

[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:12:36 PM EST] <Shiral> Is there any other kind of alarm that doesn't have 4 paws and whiskers?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:13:00 PM EST] <KK> Well, if he's going to be an indoor kitty, and can at least see light and shadow, he should do quite well. Is there another cat in the house? And if not, have you considered a second one?

[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:15:16 PM EST] <KK> Yeah, Shiral, lately I've been feeling a little like Job, with so many things piling up.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:15:54 PM EST] <Bee> Take care of yourself, KK. We all love you.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:16:26 PM EST] <KK> Thank you. I love you, too.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:16:34 PM EST] <Shiral> And cold germs don't help. Scott's liver evidently needs a stern talk, too
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:17:43 PM EST] * Bee makes KK a bowl of virtual chicken soup.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:17:56 PM EST] <Shiral> Anywhere you can go around Staunton to get a relaxing massage, or some other thing that you find relaxing and pleasrurable?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:18:18 PM EST] <KK> I'll have to think about that.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:18:59 PM EST] * Shiral passes KK a bowl of virtual chocolate ice cream
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:19:00 PM EST] <DesertRose> If not around Staunton and Scott is still in the hospital in Richmond, there ought to be something there with which to treat yourself. :)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:19:19 PM EST] <Shiral> I agree. You NEED and deserve some pampering
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:20:25 PM EST] <KK> I might go for a facial from my neighbor. And I do need a pedi.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:20:28 PM EST] <Bee> You need a Gus-cat in your lap.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:20:40 PM EST] <KK> He'll sleep with me. :-)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:20:44 PM EST] <DesertRose> Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond is lovely, if you'd like a place to sit and look at pretty plants.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:20:49 PM EST] <Shiral> Facials sound like a good idea
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:21:25 PM EST] <Jemler> colonial williamsburg. have you ever been there?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:21:30 PM EST] <KK> That would mean I'd have to drive to Richmond, which I've avoided thus far. Friends drove, the 3 times I've been. HOpefully, one will step up to the plate when it's time to go spring him from the hospital;.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:21:58 PM EST] <DesertRose> Well, I was thinking if you were already in Richmond, like after visiting Scott, go take in the gardens.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:22:03 PM EST] <KK> Been to Williamsburg several times, but it isn't a place where one wants to go when one can't walk very far.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:22:17 PM EST] <Shiral> ALso, involves driving
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:22:21 PM EST] <KK> PLUS, THAT'S EVEN FARTHER THAN rICHMOND.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:22:33 PM EST] <KK> Whoops!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:22:38 PM EST] <Evie> :-D
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:22:52 PM EST] <Shiral> Darn sticky keys. =o)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:23:30 PM EST] <KK> Yeah, this keyboard has some odd quirks. I may go back to the old one.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:23:32 PM EST] <Shiral> Maybe wait until Scott's well enough to go home and is back on his feet.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:23:33 PM EST] <Jemler> Gladys Knight singing the Anthem.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:23:37 PM EST] <DesertRose> Or, when Scott is feeling better, the gardens have dog-friendly events if you want to take a pup with you.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:24:09 PM EST] <Shiral> I'd think a garden would be more pleasant in warmer weather, anyway
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:24:12 PM EST] <bynw> i hear that Jemler ... the game is on in the other room
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:24:32 PM EST] <Jemler> on my ipad.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:24:45 PM EST] <DesertRose> (I just figure that dog-wrangling probably needs both of you. My friends who live in Richmond take their rescue beagle to the dog events at the gardens, and even though he's nine years old, he can still lean on the leash hard enough to make them glad there is a 2:1 ratio of people to dog.)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:25:25 PM EST] <KK> Afraid that will be a while. He's worn out from being in bed for 2 weeks, loss of blood (2 units replenished), and 2 endo procedures, and having the colonoscopy prep--plus that procedure.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:25:52 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yeah, definitely. But maybe this summer or early in the fall, the weather will be nice and everyone will feel up to it.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:25:58 PM EST] <Bee> Yowtch! Poor Scott
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:26:16 PM EST] <Shiral> By the time he feels better, the weather will surely be warmer, though!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:26:21 PM EST] <bynw> poor scott is right on
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:26:33 PM EST] <Evie> :-(
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:26:59 PM EST] <DesertRose> That sounds like a lot of stress of the purely physical variety, poor Scott indeed.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:27:02 PM EST] <KK> Just not too warm, please.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:27:20 PM EST] <Shiral> No. Just a nice, balmy spring day. =o)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:27:23 PM EST] <Bee> lower 70s fahrenheit
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:27:26 PM EST] <KK> Yeah, there's a bit of stress going around. I'm sure I've been affected, too.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:27:34 PM EST] <DesertRose> Or a lovely cool fall day when the leaves are turning. :)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:27:36 PM EST] <Shiral> Not surprised, KK!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:27:42 PM EST] <KK> Yep, lower 70's would be great!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:27:52 PM EST] <Evie> It was almost that high here today
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:27:53 PM EST] <Shiral> You've been through a rough month, all told
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:27:59 PM EST] <DesertRose> Indeed.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:28:13 PM EST] <DesertRose> KK needs a bubble bath and someone to bring her breakfast in bed in the morning. :)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:28:17 PM EST] <Evie> We got to the very upper 60s, I think, after our "snow" forecast this past Tuesday that ended up being a lot of nothing.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:28:19 PM EST] <KK> Yep. I'm glad we got through the holidays before everything went south.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:28:32 PM EST] <Shiral> Sounds like you kind of need a resident Mary Poppins
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:28:57 PM EST] <KK> Yeah, we missed the last snow forecast, too. Supposed to be warmish for a couple of days now, then rain on Wednesday and who knows that after.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:29:12 PM EST] <Laurna> Just checking in. KK I am so sorry to read about Scot's not being well. I truly hope he is on the mend and quickly.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:29:29 PM EST] <Bee> Our forecast is for a couple of very mild days this week.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:29:40 PM EST] <KK> So far, so good, Laurna. He may be home later this week.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:29:53 PM EST] <Laurna> That will be the best news
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:30:08 PM EST] <KK> This is the longest we've ever been apart.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:30:11 PM EST] <Evie> Hopefully you'll be feeling back to normal yourself by then
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:30:12 PM EST] <Shiral> Hope he's feeling well enough to come home. As long as his being home won't add to your stress.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:30:15 PM EST] <Laurna> I heard how far away the hospital was and I worried about the drive to visit him.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:30:32 PM EST] <KK> Good friends have driven me, so far.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:30:41 PM EST] <DesertRose> I wonder if your medical insurance would cover someone to help out the first few days he's home.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:30:44 PM EST] <Laurna> That is good.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:31:20 PM EST] <Laurna> Driving in this weather and feeling unwell is not a good combination.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:31:31 PM EST] <KK> I doubt it. I'm thinking, though, that we will probably have to go back and forth to Richmond for checkups. Sigh.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:31:38 PM EST] <Laurna> I hope you feel better too. very soon.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:31:39 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yeah, not fun.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:31:42 PM EST] <Shiral> milder weather and Scott back home will definitely improve life. And of course, recuperating from your cold. If you bake a lemon at @ 350F, until it's soft and then mix in honey, it's weird, but good.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:32:07 PM EST] <DesertRose> Sounds like a hot toddy minus the booze. :)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:32:16 PM EST] <Bee> wwith or without peel?
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:32:24 PM EST] <Shiral> Well, no reason you can't pep it up. =o)
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:32:43 PM EST] <Shiral> Bake it with the peel, but break it open
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:32:51 PM EST] <KK> I've got some local equivalent of Lem-Sip, made by Alka-Selzer, which is nice and hot and soothing. Been doing them every night, along with Coricidin BP for the cough. It helps.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:33:13 PM EST] <Shiral> Glad you have some meds that bring relief
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:33:30 PM EST] <Jemler> and so it begins...
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:33:34 PM EST] <DesertRose> Well, and I reserve hot toddies for bedtime when I have the Crud, because I get sleepy if I drink alcohol these days. Hot tea with honey and lemon juice is where it's at during the day/when I need to be more or less functional.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:33:51 PM EST] <Laurna> The Game. Yeah I just sat my dad down in front of it.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:34:17 PM EST] <KK> Yes, and that I've been able to avoid the heavy-duty one with codeine. I have it in reserve, and it works, but I always try a lesser cough suppressant first.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:34:25 PM EST] <Shiral> If you can find them locally, there's a company called traditional medicinals that makes teas. Throat coat is very good with honey for sore throats, and breathe easy does help with congestion.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:34:32 PM EST] <DesertRose> Supposedly the Budweiser Clydesdales commercial this year is going to be good.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:34:38 PM EST] <bynw> scott has a month and 6 days to recover so he's not sick on his bday ...
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:34:50 PM EST] <Bee> Good!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:35:16 PM EST] <DesertRose> Shiral: I love Traditional Medicinals. They make a ginger tea that is just lovely to drink on its own and particularly nice if you're having any kind of stomach upset.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:35:21 PM EST] <KK> I'll be watching Victoria. The good commercials will be shown again, I'm sure.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:35:47 PM EST] <Laurna> Love your way of thinking, KK.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:35:50 PM EST] <Shiral> You could catch them on Youtube. I still enjoy the one about the cat-herding
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:35:58 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL, you and me both, Shiral!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:36:05 PM EST] <bynw> the commericals are already online
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:36:42 PM EST] <Shiral> Superbowl meh but cat herding is where it's at for me.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:36:47 PM EST] <DesertRose> :D
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:36:47 PM EST] <Bee> I may check to see how the game is goiang, but I don't plan to watch it all.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:36:54 PM EST] <KK> Oh, just so we're clear, the liver issues Scott has been having are not alcohol-related. He has NASH, which is non-alcoholoc cirrhosis or fatty liver.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:37:24 PM EST] <Shiral> Just hoping he'll soon feel better
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:37:26 PM EST] <DesertRose> I didn't figure he had alcohol-related liver damage. People who like the good stuff are not usually heavy drinkers.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:37:38 PM EST] <Jemler> i entered a pool. if the pats score ends with a 0, and rams 1, i win 1000.00
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:37:45 PM EST] <KK> Anyway, I think I'll sign off now and get something to eat. It's been another long day.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:37:46 PM EST] <DesertRose> The heavy drinkers go for the cheap crap.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:02 PM EST] <DesertRose> G'night, KK. Thanks for coming to see us, rest, I hope everyone feels better soon!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:03 PM EST] <Laurna> Actually, KK we see that alot in my job, not sure if it is genetic or just the bad stuff from our every day foods.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:03 PM EST] <Shiral> Rest up KK, and hope that cold makes itself scarce
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:06 PM EST] <Jemler> nite kk.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:09 PM EST] <Evie> Goodnight, KK!

[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:21 PM EST] <Bee> Good night, KK. Get plenty of rest.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:25 PM EST] <Laurna> Get well
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:25 PM EST] <KK> Next week, usual tiome.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:26 PM EST] <Shiral> Go to bed early and treat yourself well
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:33 PM EST] <DesertRose> G'night. Go rest!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:34 PM EST] <Laurna> Your Whole family
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:41 PM EST] <KK> I will, and thank you, all. You're the best!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:44 PM EST] <Shiral> Thanks for stopping in to see us!
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:50 PM EST] <DesertRose> Have Nurse Gus purr on you and act like a living hot water bottle.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:38:53 PM EST] <Bee> Thanks for coming and we'll see you next week.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:39:02 PM EST] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:39:14 PM EST] <Laurna> Portable Purrables heathing units, the best
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:39:25 PM EST] <Evie> Luke says goodnight too
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:39:30 PM EST] <Jemler> well, i'm off too. until next week.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:39:30 PM EST] <Laurna> Heating Units
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:39:35 PM EST] <Shiral> Someone should start a cat-rental called "Portable Purrables"
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:39:36 PM EST] <Evie> By cfawling all over me
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:39:37 PM EST] <DesertRose> G'night, Jemler.
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:39:41 PM EST] <Evie> crawling, even
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:39:44 PM EST] <Shiral> Night, Jemler
[Sunday, February 3, 2019] [6:39:44 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.)
