[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:09:45 PM EDT] <Evie> Hi KK!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:09:49 PM EDT] <Bee> Hi KK
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:09:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:09:50 PM EDT] <bynw> hiyas KK
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:09:50 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Howdy KK!!!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:09:54 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hi KK
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:09:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> Been so long since I tweeted, I can't remember my password.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:10:00 PM EDT] <Shiral> HI KK
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:10:07 PM EDT] <KK> Hello, all. Fighting with my new phone and lost track of the time.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:10:08 PM EDT] <Bee> How was the Michaeline retreat?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:10:19 PM EDT] <KK> Very good.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:10:27 PM EDT] <Evie> I have a Twitter account I rarely bother reading unless there is some major news event happening and I want to see the emerging stories from wherever it is happening.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:10:33 PM EDT] <Shiral> I didn't even have time to bait the a author traps
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:10:47 PM EDT] <WidowSon> whats a Michaeline retreat like KK?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:10:50 PM EDT] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:11:27 PM EDT] <KK> I now have a Twitter account, but haven't had time to play with it yet. Especially not with the new phone.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:11:35 PM EDT] <Evie> I was just saying it's too bad we can't get the Michaelines to build us a real world Portal network so we can just all meet to chat in person. ;-)
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:11:40 PM EDT] <jemler> kk, did you hear they are making a movie of Downton Abbey?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:12:02 PM EDT] <Bee> besides the series?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:12:05 PM EDT] <KK> Yes, I was delighted to hear that, Jemler.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:12:06 PM EDT] <jemler> yes
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:12:07 PM EDT] <Derynifank> That would be cool Evie
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:12:21 PM EDT] <Evie> Gigi is here to knead biscuits on my tummy and prepare to use it as a sitting spot.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:12:33 PM EDT] <Derynifank> How is the apartment search going?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:12:44 PM EDT] * Bee skritches Gigi.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:12:50 PM EDT] <Evie> Is that question for me, DFK?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:12:52 PM EDT] <Shiral> THey're making a Downton Abbey MOVIE???? Happy Dance!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:13:06 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Yes Evie
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:13:10 PM EDT] <jemler> usa today mentioned it.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:14:09 PM EDT] <Evie> The good news is, my folks have an apartment reserved to move into in early October. The bad news is, they had to cut their visit short by a day to go back home, because Dad got word from his doctor that he has a 70% blockage in a carotid artery and needs to schedule surgery ASAP
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:14:23 PM EDT] <KK> It's a real world rligious order, WS. We pray together, hang out together, work rituals together. Labyrinth comes to mind. Its inspiration was the book MIchaelines, but translated into the real world, now more than 20 years ago.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:14:47 PM EDT] <Evie> So at least moving in early October rather than the beginning of September (as originally planned) will give him more recovery time before their move
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:14:48 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Thats cool KK
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:15:58 PM EDT] <KK> Good going, Evie.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:15:58 PM EDT] * bynw notes he wants to the annual retreat at least once ... but hasnt ever made it yet
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:16:02 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Happy to hear about the apartment Evie. Am sorry to hear about the need for surgery. HOPE all goes well for him
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:16:03 PM EDT] <Evie> Labyrinth as in using one for meditative practice? Because the David Bowie movie just came into my head, and I suddenly imagined blue-robed Deryni doing crystal ball juggling!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:16:25 PM EDT] <KK> Meditation, Evie. ;-)
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:16:49 PM EDT] <jemler> dance. magic. dance.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:16:49 PM EDT] <Evie> Drat, my illusions of Michaeline Jareth have been shattered. ;-)
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:16:56 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hope your dad's surgery goes well, Evie
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:17:19 PM EDT] <WidowSon> KK what book is that? is this related to your works or something else?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:17:23 PM EDT] <Evie> He's had this surgery before on the other side, and recovered quickly, so I'm hoping the same will be true this time around.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:17:48 PM EDT] <Evie> From the Deryni series, WidowSon
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:17:58 PM EDT] <Derynifank> We all hope so and will be praying for him.

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:17:59 PM EDT] <KK> The Michaelines in the books, WS.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:18:10 PM EDT] <bynw> hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:18:13 PM EDT] <Shiral> Crystal ball juggling could get messy without perfect eye hand coordination
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:18:19 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:18:24 PM EDT] <Evie> Thanks, DFK
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:18:27 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hi Everyone
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:18:40 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:18:53 PM EDT] <Evie> hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:19:05 PM EDT] <Evie> Having difficulty reading through a very solid cat
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:19:20 PM EDT] <Bee> I'm not seeing my own posts. Are they getting through?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:19:23 PM EDT] <Shiral> Cats are known for being opaque
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:19:26 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Wow......I didn't know that KK. How does one get involved or is it a closed group? sound s interesting
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:19:27 PM EDT] <Evie> We see them, Bee
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:19:29 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Can see how that could be a problem
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:19:31 PM EDT] <bynw> yes Bee we see you
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:19:36 PM EDT] <jemler> hi jerusha
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:19:42 PM EDT] <jemler> brb. dinner.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:19:42 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Sitting on the dock watching a family of ducks swim by
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:19:54 PM EDT] <Bee> good. I'm seeing me too now.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:20:06 PM EDT] <bynw> yay to seeing you
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:20:22 PM EDT] <Shiral> Invisibility can be disconcerting
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:20:32 PM EDT] <KK> Google Order of St. Michael, and you'll sift through several other entries and find us.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:20:34 PM EDT] <Bee> mallards? teal?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:20:41 PM EDT] <Jerusha> So transparent
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:20:56 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Loons
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:20:56 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Unless you are cloaking for a particular reason
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:21:21 PM EDT] <bynw> invisibility has its uses
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:21:45 PM EDT] <Shiral> Definitely, not that I've ever personally experienced that state
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:22:04 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Bet Wash would like to be invisible so Feyd couldn't find him
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:22:10 PM EDT] <Evie> I have been doing some research (just beginning some reading) about women in the Hospitaller order, where they apparently had a more active role than just being kept around for laundry or cooking, and was wondering if maybe the Gabrilites might have made room for female Healers, who could work with
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:22:10 PM EDT] <Evie> female patients without the awkwardness male Healers might have in certain situations?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:22:14 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Ahhhhh I see KK......its a real chivalric order.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:23:07 PM EDT] <KK> Not the chivalric order.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:23:19 PM EDT] <bynw> https://michaelines.org/ <--- is the site you want WidowSon
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:23:31 PM EDT] <KK> Not many female Healers, Evie. But I'd imagine the Gabrilites would find roomfor them.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:23:38 PM EDT] <Evie> Well, no, not in a fighting role, but in a more auxiliary role
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:24:12 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Thanks KK just found it as you typed! Cool!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:24:15 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Backing up the troops with their skills
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:24:22 PM EDT] <Evie> I know what my next con costume might be, then. :-D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:24:49 PM EDT] <KK> Gabrilites were strictly hosptrallers. No problem for women except that there wouldn't be many of them.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:25:26 PM EDT] <Evie> Not that I have any idea when I might get back to another con, but DH has another job interview on Tuesday (a second interview), so keeping fingers crossed he might eventually have a job with better pay and saner hours that would allow for weekend travel.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:25:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:25:48 PM EDT] <WidowSon> thanks bynw
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:25:53 PM EDT] <Bee> I'm thinking the lack of female Healers implies that the Healing gene is a recessive on the X chromosome
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:26:00 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Will keep my fingers for DH
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:26:04 PM EDT] <Shiral> Good luck to DH
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:26:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Sorry, I was out of window fiddling with the 300+ photos I took of the Kingdom-wide traveling fighter practice/kickoff for YMCA camp Medieval Week that I went to earlier today.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:26:14 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Good Luck @Evie
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:26:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Good luck to DH, Evie.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:26:28 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Fingers are crossed, Evie, and hi DR
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:26:34 PM EDT] <Shiral> Photos can be very distracting
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:27:09 PM EDT] <Evie> Or given the tendency for female Healers to be infertile, I'm wondering if maybe female Healers are also more likely to be miscarried than male Healers, so more males end up surviving long enough to be born?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:27:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, I wanted to put them all in the same Google Drive folder for sharing, because I took way more photos than I realized I had until my phone started fussing at me about storage space.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:27:14 PM EDT] <KK> Fingers crossed, Evie. And how is DS doing, now that he's an RN?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:27:32 PM EDT] <Evie> Doing fine so far.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:27:59 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hope he is enjoying it
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:28:12 PM EDT] <Evie> He seems to be
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:28:16 PM EDT] <KK> I'm noticing more and more male nurses in hospital settings. A good trend, I think.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:28:19 PM EDT] <Bee> That coould still be linked the the X chromosome, Evie
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:28:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The YMCA camp is about halfway between here (Jacksonville, FL) and Gainesville, so the baronies in each city use that site rather a lot for local events, so we have a vested interest in keeping good relations with the camp management.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:28:41 PM EDT] <Evie> And he's moved into a new house, which he shares with a housemate, his housemate's very hyperactive dog, and his cat
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:28:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Which fortunately we seem to be doing. And BTW, KK, the campsite has an archery field named for Baron Master Taly.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:29:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It was so named while he was still living, and he was there when it was dedicated.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:29:35 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hopefully cat and dog get along

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:30:26 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Oops
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:30:41 PM EDT] <bynw> because it's fruity? :)
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:30:42 PM EDT] <Evie> Speaking of SCA, btw, I might not be here next weekend, since we're having our Royal University event, which is 4 hours away, so I am not sure if I'll be home by chat time or not.

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:31:00 PM EDT] <KK> DR, that reminds me that I owe an e-mail to one of Master Taly's folk who has a Michaeline tabard that I gave him many years ago. It was forwarded from the website, and I need to find that. DOn't suppose you know who that might be?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:31:05 PM EDT] <Bee> rehi WS
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:31:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I think it may be the email to which Evie referred a moment ago.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:31:43 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Thanks Bee
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:31:46 PM EDT] <Evie> KK, that might have been the email I sent you, which was originally sent to the registration email address

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:32:01 PM EDT] <Evie> I can look in the archives after chat and forward it to you again.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:32:02 PM EDT] <Shiral> Welcome back WS and DFK

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:33:26 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Itís very quiet
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:33:28 PM EDT] <KK> I vaguely remember Master Taly, and him being a lovely gentleman. But it's been many, many years.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:33:29 PM EDT] <Evie> Someone hand DFK some duct tape
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:33:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Just re-sent it.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:34:22 PM EDT] <WidowSon> KK did you ever get my emails that I re-sent to ya? I just wanted make sure I didn't screw something up and send wrong.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:34:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> He was. He was definitely one of the foundations of Trimaris as a kingdom, and you should have SEEN the Trimaris FB group when the news of his passing was made public.

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:34:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Rehi Derynifank
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:34:55 PM EDT] * Evie hands DFK a roll of duct tape
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:35:05 PM EDT] * bynw pets the cat sitting on the computer tower next to him
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:35:18 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Rehi. Thanks for the duct tape Evie
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:35:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> He was tall and thin and at one point had curly auburn hair, but by the time I met him (~15 years ago), it was all white. He didn't mince words, but I like that in a person. :D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:35:21 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Duct tape will fix most everything.....at least temporarily
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:35:36 PM EDT] <jemler> ust ask macgyver.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:35:50 PM EDT] <Evie> Duct tape is the Force. It has a dark side, a light side, and it holds everything together.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:35:51 PM EDT] <KK> New phone, WS, and some traveling. And I'm not sure I can open the files; didn't try, honestly, because I didn't have time right then. But it was an odd format, as I recall. I can read Word just fine.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:35:55 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Think MA
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:36:07 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hello?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:36:23 PM EDT] <Evie> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:36:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Re duct tape: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dullhunk/7214525854
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:36:45 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hi again Jerusha
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:37:08 PM EDT] <KK> I like that, DR!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:37:13 PM EDT] <WidowSon> KK...I sent again in different format......just let me know if the new stuff won't open. No rush......Im still working on it. I think its pretty cool but.....thats just me.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:37:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I thought it might be of general amusement value.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:37:22 PM EDT] * bynw has seen clothing made out of duct tape
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:37:30 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL, DR
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:37:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I had to show it to my stepdad the first time I saw it because he was basically an engineer without an engineering degree for most of his career, and I knew he'd laugh.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:37:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> You can make some pretty impressive stuff out of duct tape.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:37:56 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Love that chart DR
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:38:06 PM EDT] <KK> My dad ws the same way, and he would've like it, too.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:38:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> One of these days, I'm going to enlist someone's help in making a duct tape dressmaker's dummy of myself.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:38:10 PM EDT] <WidowSon> AWESOME DR! LOL
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:38:35 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Great idea!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:38:42 PM EDT] <KK> I've heard of those, DR, and I think they're probably very useful, if they're done right.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:38:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's actually fairly easy, but it requires a second set of hands; it's sort of difficult to do by oneself.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:38:54 PM EDT] <bynw> just duct tape? or does it have some kind of frame?

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:39:06 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Hi Jerusha 2
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:39:06 PM EDT] <bynw> hello Jerusha and Jerusha2
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:39:13 PM EDT] <Bee> mallards? teal?Hi jerusha2
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:39:23 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> Loons
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:39:23 PM EDT] <Shiral> This chat room creates Evil Twins
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:39:37 PM EDT] <bynw> no the web interfaces do it
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:39:42 PM EDT] <Evie> rehi, Jerusha
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:39:45 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> I do my best to fit in
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:39:46 PM EDT] <KK> I think you put supports in it after it's made and carefully cut off. Gets built over a tee-shirt, as I recall, and that gets sacrificed in the process--but keeps you getting stuck all over with duct tape.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:40:02 PM EDT] <Derynifank> 2 Jerushas better than one
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:40:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> You put on whatever undergarments you need (depending on one's build; I'd need a bra for sure), then a t-shirt you don't mind losing, then have someone duct tape you into the t-shirt tightly enough that it will have to be cut off for you to get out of it, then you tape it back together, stuff it with something (newsprint or whatever), and you have a custom-fitted dressmaker's dummy of your own body.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:40:17 PM EDT] <Bee> keeps yoou or keeps you from?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:40:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Jerusha2
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:40:42 PM EDT] <bynw> that's cool DesertRose
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:40:49 PM EDT] <Evie> keeps you from, Bee
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:41:04 PM EDT] <bynw> DesertRose, kinda hard to do that by yourself
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:41:08 PM EDT] <KK> Keeps you from. Think about having the tape stuck to your skin. Yuck!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:41:13 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> Mibbit decided to ignore Jerusha

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:41:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Part of the reason I haven't bothered is that I'm fairly evenly proportioned so it's not as difficult to customize patterns to my body as it is for some folks.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:41:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The duct tape has to be applied as smoothly as possible too, so that REALLY makes it difficult to do without another person.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:41:55 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> And now part of me is gone
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:42:13 PM EDT] <Bee> the evil part, I hope

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:43:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys is sulking because I wouldn't let her in my lap after I ate supper earlier.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:43:40 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> So long as my head doesnít start spinning 360 we are OK
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:43:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Now she's up here wanting to be petted.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:44:03 PM EDT] * Bee pets Charys
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:44:43 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> Scritches for Carys
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:45:15 PM EDT] <KK> Gus has just returned to my lap. We had a thunderstorm pass through an hour or so ago, and he got wet aqnd came to sit on my lap afterward, somewhat soggy.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:45:20 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Pets to a Cary
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:45:25 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Carys
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:46:04 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> Nothing is more affectionate than a wet dog or cat
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:46:12 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Awwww Gus needed some attention.....
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:46:12 PM EDT] <Bee> Hi, sssoggy Gus.

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:47:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi sogGus.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:47:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Sorry, incapussitated. Carys gladly accepts all pets and scritches.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:47:45 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> Oh oh
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:47:58 PM EDT] <Bee> Melaantha sspent an hour or so surrounded by dogs. she had her yearly checkp
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:48:18 PM EDT] <KK> Other than the periodic rain, this is great cat weather, and he spends a lot of time outside on Mother's deck or curled up in a nest against one wall of her cottage.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:48:19 PM EDT] <Evie> I just got a refund check for $1.50 for being overcharged for my drivers' licence online renewal. Oooh, wealth! LOL!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:48:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I think my cat is defective. Her Give-A-Care seems irreparably broken or missing entirely.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:48:46 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:48:48 PM EDT] <KK> Wealth, indeed.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:48:55 PM EDT] <Bee> Don'tspen it all in one place. ;)
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:49:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That and four more dollars will buy you a latte. ;P
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:49:36 PM EDT] <Evie> Too bad I only had one license to renew!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:49:41 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> What are you rolling for, Bynw?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:49:59 PM EDT] <KK> It IS less expensive to renew on line. Maybe you clicked on the wrong button, and it charged you for the ful amount rather than the discount rate. Or someone at the other end messed up. Either is possible.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:50:02 PM EDT] <bynw> see PM on the forums
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:50:13 PM EDT] * Shiral gives Carys an ear Scritch and then gives one to Soggy Gus

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:50:46 PM EDT] <Evie> It was on the other end. DD got a letter too. Apparently everyone who did an online renewal during a certain date range got overcharged by $1.50.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:50:50 PM EDT] <bynw> and we lost DFK again
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:50:54 PM EDT] <KK> Fortunately, he isn't soggy anymore, which is just as well, since he'll undoubtedly sleep with me tonight as usual.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:51:21 PM EDT] <Shiral> Every time I lie down for an afternoon nap, I have furry company
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:51:25 PM EDT] <Evie> For a moment I lost track and thought you meant Scott. LOL!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:52:02 PM EDT] <Shiral> Well, why wouldn't Scott enjoy an ear scritch now and then? =o)
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:52:32 PM EDT] <KK> ;-) Scott sleeps with me, too. And he's rarely soggy. But you haven't lived until you've had a soggy cat come into bed in the middle of the night and burrow under the covers to get warm--and dry--against you!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:52:34 PM EDT] <Evie> No, I was picturing Scott going to KK's bed soggy. :-D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:52:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> He's been around cats for long enough, he'd probably lean into the scritch and purr at KK.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:52:59 PM EDT] <Shiral> I would think Scott knows where the towels are. =o)
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:53:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hopefully! :D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:53:12 PM EDT] <Evie> Let's hope!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:53:26 PM EDT] <Shiral> Except for drinking, Dmitri avoids water at all cost
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:53:45 PM EDT] <bynw> only one of my cats likes to go under the covers and only for a short period of time
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:53:46 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yet contradictorily, he's fascinated by my shower stall
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:53:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I think it's funny that I started typing "Mmrr?" when someone says something I don't quite get, after that sound cats make when you surprise them or they encounter something that puzzles them, and I am amazed at how many people know what I mean.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:54:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys mostly avoids water, but for whatever bizarre reason in her fuzzy little head, she likes to rest on the bathmat while I have a shower or bath, and she'll just stand there and let me drip on her while I'm drying off.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:54:44 PM EDT] <Evie> Well, aside from being able to tell by context, I'll bet you have a fair few friends who are also owned by cats.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:54:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Indeed I do. :D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:54:56 PM EDT] <Shiral> In truly cold weather, my cats will get under the covers, only to get right out, again. They like the idea, but not the reality
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:55:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys doesn't generally get under the covers, but she'll curl up into the crook of my knees in half a heartbeat.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:55:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> But we are also in Florida, where it seldom gets cooler than "chilly." :D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:55:54 PM EDT] <Evie> I have had to banish kittehs from my room at bedtime, because otherwise Luke is too hyper to sleep with, plus it's like sleeping with a hot water bottle, which is not good during Alabama summers!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:56:14 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> Nope
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:56:15 PM EDT] <Evie> And Gigi used to attack toes under the blankets, so that's disconcerting
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:56:15 PM EDT] <KK> Gus curls up in the crook of my right arm, hard against my side, and pretty much stays there all night.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:56:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, she mostly gets booted when I go to bed for the night, but I'll usually let her stay if I'm just having a nap.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:56:52 PM EDT] * bynw cant get rid of Andi off the bed. it's a loosing battle so why fight it
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:56:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> But she has a tendency to start knocking things off whatever horizontal surface she can find to wake me up after I've slept three or four hours, which is fine for a nap but doesn't cut it for overnight.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:57:08 PM EDT] <Evie> Gigi liked to sleep either there or across my knees, but since I'm a side sleeper and tend to turn over once or twice in the middle of the night, a cat lying on me is not conducive to that.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:57:16 PM EDT] <Shiral> I go to bed, and while the cats aren't necesarily there when I turn out the light, they're definitely there in the morning because they want breakfast
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:57:38 PM EDT] <Evie> And anyway, now that I have a CPAP machine, I don't want either of them getting it into their pointy little noggins to use the hose as a toy!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:57:55 PM EDT] <Bee> Melantha thinks my tv remote belongs on the floor. that's where sehe kocks it
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:57:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, when I had Cyrano and Christian and my then-boyfriend's cat, Blackfoot, they'd all sleep on me, and if I had to get up in the middle of the night, it was a challenge to get up with three cats on me.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:58:06 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> Not a good idea
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:58:11 PM EDT] <bynw> it's a snake and it's attacking mom! kill it ::pounce::
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:58:15 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:58:24 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:58:43 PM EDT] <Evie> "It's eating Mom's face! It must DIE!!!"
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:58:55 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> Ride the wild air hose!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:59:00 PM EDT] <KK> How's the CPAP working out, Evie?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:59:14 PM EDT] <Bee> Does the CPAP help with the apnea?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:59:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Layla The Holy Terror Of A Kitten has figured out at warp speed (seemingly) that I'm good for petting and playtime, and any time she notices me coming up my parents' walkway, she sprints for the door.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:59:25 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Which is adorable, honestly.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:59:26 PM EDT] <Evie> Now that I have a mask that isn't trying to turn me homicidal, it's working fine. :-D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [7:59:44 PM EDT] <Evie> And yes, Bee, it seems to be helping
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:00:12 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I had a bobcat come up to my glass door of my office. It looks outside. The glass is tinted so it couldn't see in.....cuteness personified! https://youtu.be/W9nTgnkmbkA
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:00:34 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Just a few days ago! :)
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:00:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The last time I was at the house, Layla was in the garage snoopervising whatever my stepdad was doing, and she saw me through the garage window and hauled it for the main part of the house.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:00:50 PM EDT] <Jerusha2> Thatís good, Evie
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:01:15 PM EDT] <Evie> Pretty kitty, WS!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:01:25 PM EDT] <WidowSon> :)

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:01:50 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Lots a wildlife at Rookery Bay Reserve!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:02:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Cute bobkitten!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:02:15 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Yup BEE! Rip your lips off if it had a chance! LOL
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:02:35 PM EDT] <KK> Wow, WS! He or she is beautiful! What do you suppose he was looking for? Or was he just curious? Does this sort of thing happen often?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:02:45 PM EDT] <WidowSon> not sure KK
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:03:15 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I think it heard us freaking out just inside and was interested
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:03:25 PM EDT] <Evie> Now if only you were Dhugal, you could go outside and establish animal rapport with it. :-D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:03:27 PM EDT] <KK> Are there many in the vicinity of your office? You guys must be doing something right, to provide habitat that they like.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:03:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The aforementioned former boyfriend's mom and stepdad worked for the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, and at one point when my then-boyfriend and his brother and stepbrother were kids, they (mom and stepdad) fostered an orphaned baby bobcat. She was named Feisty, and when she was old enough, she was released back into the wild, but apparently the name fit.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:03:43 PM EDT] <WidowSon> third Bobcat visit this summer so far!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:03:53 PM EDT] <KK> Wow.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:04:01 PM EDT] <KK> That is so cool!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:04:09 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Also, owls, hawks, rattlesnakes, wild boar....etc
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:04:38 PM EDT] <KK> He looks very healthy, and well fed.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:04:39 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Come visit sometime......Naples is beautiful!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:05:08 PM EDT] <Bee> Naples, Italy?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:05:16 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Florida!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:05:23 PM EDT] <Bee> ah
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:05:38 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Naples Italy would make nice trip though!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:05:42 PM EDT] <Evie> I used to live outside of Naples, Italy. The thought of rattlesnakes and bobcats being in that Naples gives me the giggles
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:05:57 PM EDT] <WidowSon> LOL @Evie
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:06:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Probably gives the people of Naples nightmares!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:06:15 PM EDT] <Evie> :-D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:06:34 PM EDT] <Evie> They're used to living under Vesuvius. Bobcats are less scary!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:06:35 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Sweet Dreams......NOT Nightmares! LOL
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:06:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:07:19 PM EDT] <Bee> I hear they've uncovered another part of Pmpei
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:07:24 PM EDT] <Evie> My school field trips were to places like the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. I have a very healthy respect for active volcanoes.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:07:25 PM EDT] <Shiral> Italian Bobcats? =o)
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:08:02 PM EDT] <Shiral> They're a good thing to respect, yes. Look at Kilauea
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:08:04 PM EDT] <Evie> They've done a lot more excavating there and in Herculaneum than they'd done in the mid-1970s when I was there.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:08:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I think I'd rather have Italian Ice or gelato. :D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:08:18 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Well.....gotta go ya'll. As usual its awesome hanging out with such wonderful people.....and most of all our matron KK!!!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:08:19 PM EDT] <Shiral> I think I would too, DR
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:08:20 PM EDT] <jemler> if you don't want nightmares, ask your neighbor Run Around Souix for a dreamcatcher.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:08:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, g'night WidowSon
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:08:26 PM EDT] <Shiral> Bye, WidowSon

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:09:39 PM EDT] <Evie> My neighborhood was 30 miles from the volcano, in the area where I think ancient Misenum was. They still got ash that far away, back during the eruption around 79 AD (I think that's the right year).

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:10:41 PM EDT] Quit Jerusha2 (Mibbit@4CA975.E72DF0.A50353.33F4DA) has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:10:50 PM EDT] <Evie> Seems to be a fair bit of that going around tonight
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:11:12 PM EDT] <Bee> Which Jerusssha will return?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:11:31 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Think these connections are bewitched
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:12:04 PM EDT] <Shiral> Or we need to do a better job of warding
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:12:09 PM EDT] <Evie> Yup. Or at least the browser-based clients are
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:12:38 PM EDT] <Bee> Are all the bootees ussing kiwi?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:13:04 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I was, noe using mibbit
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:13:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yes. My mother wants to shove a shoe where the sun don't shine on people who will build on the beachfront and then get upset when a hurricane destroys their house.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:13:51 PM EDT] <jemler> i use mirc.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:14:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Um, you built beachfront in Florida? What did you think would happen?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:14:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> No kidding
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:15:02 PM EDT] Join Jerusha (Mibbit@OWIRCN-d195a366.onlink.net) has joined this channel.

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:15:12 PM EDT] <Bee> rehi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:15:22 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Wb Jetushq
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:15:37 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Had to go inside. Little bugs attacking
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:16:06 PM EDT] <Bee> no-see-ums?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:16:11 PM EDT] <Evie> Oh drat, forgot to buy distilled water while I was out. Oh well, I still have some left.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:16:47 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Actually, that last post was done by Wash's monk in code
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:16:56 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:16:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:17:31 PM EDT] <Evie> That's my new name for Jerusha. Jetushq.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:17:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Titivillius still lives with us, though there aren't many scriptoria still around. He's become the patron demon of typos, since scribal errors are a little thin on the ground in the Information Age.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:17:48 PM EDT] <KK> But rising water is flooding areas that never flooded before, or only flooded from hurricanes. When I was down in SoFla taking care of my father's estate, I drove in areas that never used to flood when I was a kid growing up there. Now, if it's even just one of those super high tides, the streets in Coconut Grove and Miami Beach go underwater.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:17:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I am become Typo, the Destroyer of Communication.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:17:56 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I can see them. They arenít biting but are annoying
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:19:00 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Same hrr
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:19:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yes. The campsite I went to earlier today got a good drenching from a passing thunderstorm, and the rainwater wound up IN the pole barn (open but covered space) where the fighting was happening. That doesn't usually happen, but they've been fighting erosion at that site for quite some years now.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:19:21 PM EDT] <Bee> That's why they're called no-see-ums, Jerusha
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:19:31 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Jetushq bows to the god of typos
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:19:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> We had a shallow river through the pole barn.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:19:50 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Same here KK. They just rrdid the floid map snd it really changed, not for the better
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:20:02 PM EDT] <Bee> oops I misread Jerusha's post.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:20:25 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Thatís Ok, Bee
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:20:43 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Redid the flood map
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:20:43 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Not a god. A patron demon. Titivillius was the patron demon of scribal errors, back when making books required handwritten calligraphy and hand-painted illumination. :D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:21:19 PM EDT] <Jerusha> We all need a patron demon
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:21:33 PM EDT] <Derynifank> True
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:21:35 PM EDT] <Bee> PBS Newshour Weekend had a segment about something called a living shoreline. Build a barrier with netss of oyster shells, and let grassses take hold.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:21:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And I and my calligraphy partners-in-crime have decided that he still haunts us but he has branched out to become the patron demon of typos.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:22:34 PM EDT] <KK> We were well acquainted, back when I used to do scrolls for the SCA.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:23:08 PM EDT] <bynw> yes Titivillius has embraced technology to cause all sorts of typos and probably is the one behind "auto correct"
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:23:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Bee, that's something they've done in Charleston for a long time. There's a type of building material called tabby, that is basically concrete made with oyster shells rather than sand.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:23:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> One of my friends calls it "auto-corrupt."
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:24:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I usually just say "DYAC," for the site Damn You, Auto-Correct. :D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:24:08 PM EDT] <Derynifank> They are doing that here for flood control. Building Oyster reefs and restoring shorelines with native plants and grasses
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:24:49 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Mevtoo, DR
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:24:56 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Me too
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:24:58 PM EDT] <Bee> I wonder if it would wwork for Cape Cod. different shells, maaybe
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:25:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Probably.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:26:05 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I betbit would
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:26:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Seashells are mostly made of calcium, regardless of the type of critter they once held, so it ought to work with other types of shells.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:27:05 PM EDT] <Bee> clam shell
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:27:29 PM EDT] <KK> I hadn't heard of that, though I do know about tabby. Maintaining beaches has almost always involved dredging and then shooting the sand back onto the beaches. But that doesn't solve the erosion problem; just repairs it temporarily.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:27:43 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Alas, I must go. Nighters, Everyone!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:27:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, g'night, Jerusha
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:27:50 PM EDT] <bynw> night Jerusha

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:28:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, g'night, Derynifank

[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:29:20 PM EDT] <Evie> I hear thunder moving in
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:29:30 PM EDT] <KK> On a sidebar, I've recently discovered a cache of oyster shells on the side of our hill here behind the house. It looks like someone had an oyster feast and tossed the shells, 50-80 years ago. You see a lot of oyster plates in antique stores in the area, with the little indentations. Some of them are very pretty. But it indicates that, at one time, oysters were a staple, brought in from the coast.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:29:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's July and you're in Alabama. Are you surprised? :D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:29:44 PM EDT] <Shiral> You let a thunderstorm move in with you and things will get damp
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:29:49 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL, not really
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:30:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup. A lot of seafood was once a luxury.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:31:03 PM EDT] <KK> Anyway, it's probably time for me to head out, too. HOpefully, this next week will be a bit quieter than the last one, and I'll get some meaningful work done. Take care, all.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:31:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, g'night, KK, and thanks for coming to see us! Will you be here next week?
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:31:28 PM EDT] <Shiral> Night, KK, thanks for stopping in
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:31:32 PM EDT] <Bee> Thaanks for coming, KK. Goodbye and Good Week
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:31:36 PM EDT] <bynw> have a good night KK
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:31:37 PM EDT] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles. Yes, I'll be here.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:31:43 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, awesome! Have a good week!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:31:53 PM EDT] <Evie> Bye!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:31:55 PM EDT] <KK> Back to phone taming. :-)
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:32:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:32:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> At least it shouldn't bite you. :D
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:32:05 PM EDT] <jemler> nite kk
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:32:08 PM EDT] <Shiral> Crack that tiny whip!
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:32:09 PM EDT] <Evie> See you in two weeks, if not next week
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:32:18 PM EDT] <Evie> (Since I might still be on the way back home.)
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:32:21 PM EDT] <KK> Right-e-o.
[Sunday, July 15, 2018] [8:32:25 PM EDT] Quit KK has left this server (Quit: CGI:IRC).
"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.)
