[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:07:29 PM EDT] <Evie> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:07:29 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:07:30 PM EDT] <bynw> hi KK
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:07:31 PM EDT] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:07:34 PM EDT] <KK> Hello, troops.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:07:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> How has your week been?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:07:52 PM EDT] <Evie> It must be chat time. I have a cat on each arm of my chair.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:08:06 PM EDT] <Shiral> I read another Joke of a woman dressed as a witch and was asked about her cat, looking out a window, and whether the cat liked Halloween. The woman said "Yes, she loved trick or treating when she was a child."
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:08:09 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hi KK
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:08:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Evie, imminently becatted. :D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:08:15 PM EDT] <KK> I was just watching Booker disembowel an armadillo--stuffed, but it was still pretty intense.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:08:41 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hail and farewell to the late armadillo
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:09:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I love the meaning of the word "armadillo" in Spanish. Little armored thing. Excellent descriptor for the animal in question.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:10:21 PM EDT] <jemler> an amarillo armadillo.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:10:36 PM EDT] <Shiral> From Amarillo, Texas
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:10:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> A yellow armadillo?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:10:50 PM EDT] <KK> Yep, he went burrowing into his toy sack, pulled out the innocent armadillo, and proceeded to chew and tear it to bits. There are armadillo guts strewn all over the floor in the TV room.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:10:51 PM EDT] <jemler> yep.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:10:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Poor stuffed toy, LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:11:20 PM EDT] <Shiral> I wonder what the Armadillo said to Booker? =o)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:11:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> "Bite me"?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:11:47 PM EDT] <jemler> bite me.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:12:01 PM EDT] <jemler> dr! get out of my head!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:12:09 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:12:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:12:19 PM EDT] <Shiral> LOL, that's certainly what Booker seems to have heard
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:12:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Booker seems to have heard, "Chew me to bits!"
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:13:04 PM EDT] <KK> Well, I expect the deflated carcass will be around for a while, occasionally hauled out for a game of tug with Warner.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:13:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> "I'll teach YOU to talk like that!"

[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:13:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi TheDeryni
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:13:16 PM EDT] <jemler> hi td
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:13:17 PM EDT] <Evie> Hello, deer.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:13:27 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hi TD
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:13:31 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Hola!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:13:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Como estas?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:13:46 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Hi, my Deer.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:14:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (Sorry, not sure how to do the upside-down question mark that belongs at the beginning of a question in Spanish on IRC.)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:14:21 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Me either
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:15:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose>
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:15:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Did that come through?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:15:19 PM EDT] <KK> Seems like a fairly silly punctuation anyway. What if you don't decide until the end of the sentence that it's going to be a question?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:15:20 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Yes
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:15:22 PM EDT] <Evie> Yay
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:15:29 PM EDT] <TheDeryni>
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:15:40 PM EDT] <jemler> how?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:15:56 PM EDT] <Evie> It looks like a fish hook. Wave it at jemler.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:16:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I copy/pasted it from alt-codes dot net. :P
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:16:22 PM EDT] <jemler> sorry, Charlie. :)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:16:53 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> It's actually on my phones keyboard (SwiftKey)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:17:06 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Er, phone's
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:17:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I have SwiftKey on my phone, but I'm on my desktop right now.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:17:51 PM EDT] <Evie> Do you have an Android phone? And if so, which chat client do you use?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:17:52 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Ah
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:18:19 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> I use "Andchat"
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:18:29 PM EDT] <Shiral> Well, Spain has a long coast line, maybe they ARE trying to catch fish. =o)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:18:35 PM EDT] <Evie> OK. I use that also, on the rare occasions I ever chat via phone.

[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:18:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, I think the "not deciding until the end of the sentence that it's going to be a question" is more of a concern in spoken Spanish than written.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:18:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Rehi derynifank

[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:18:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Bee
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:00 PM EDT] <jemler> hi bee
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:08 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hello Bee
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:12 PM EDT] <Bee> Hii all !
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:24 PM EDT] <Evie> True, though one so rarely uses question marks of any orientation in spoken Spanish. Just tone variations. :-D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:25 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Hi Bee, DF
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> All that seafood for paella has to come from somewhere, re: Spain's coastline.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:29 PM EDT] * Shiral offers KK a slice of Angel Food Cake

[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:40 PM EDT] <derynifank> I seem to be cursed tonight. Trying my laptop
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:46 PM EDT] <bynw> hi again from last night TheDeryni
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:51 PM EDT] * Shiral gives TD a seat belt to stay in chat
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:54 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Hi
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:55 PM EDT] * bynw is off to check on laundry
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:19:56 PM EDT] <Evie> Hoping that works better for you, DFK
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:20:09 PM EDT] * DesertRose passes the plate of pavlova around chat.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:20:19 PM EDT] <derynifank> Tabllet just wold not connect
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:20:23 PM EDT] <Shiral> ooooo! Pavlova! Never had any
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:20:34 PM EDT] * Shiral helps herself to a slice
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:20:44 PM EDT] <derynifank> Hi all, hope this works
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:20:54 PM EDT] * TheDeryni makes papoosas for the room.

[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:21:16 PM EDT] <jemler> hi dennis
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:21:17 PM EDT] * Shiral then recovers manners and keeps the Pavlova circulating through the room
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:21:20 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hi Dennis
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:21:25 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Hi Dennis
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:21:25 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Mom was actually kind of annoyed at Mary Berry's recipe, because unlike the others Mom read, it called for stirring the whipped cream INTO the lemon curd, which made WAY more filling than the baked meringue would hold.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:21:28 PM EDT] * Evie waits to see if the pavlova dances before realizing it's the wrong sort of pavlova
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:21:29 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Dennis
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:21:43 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It was also almost too sweet.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:21:51 PM EDT] <Dennis> Hi all!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:21:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> If this Pavlova danced, there would be cream, curd and berries all over the chat room
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:22:00 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Lol, Evie
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:22:08 PM EDT] <Evie> hi Dennis
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:22:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> To say nothing of "bits of baked meringue." :D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:22:24 PM EDT] <Shiral> That too!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:22:31 PM EDT] <KK> What is in papoosas?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:23:06 PM EDT] <Evie> Usually a baby
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:23:07 PM EDT] <Bee> Babies?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:23:10 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:23:11 PM EDT] <bynw> hi Dennis
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:23:14 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Pork or chicken or beans,usually
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:23:17 PM EDT] <Shiral> They're a form of South/Central American sandwich, and you can fill them with different subtstances, I think
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:23:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Looks like a masa pastry filled with various (mostly savory) fillings.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:23:44 PM EDT] <KK> Sounds yummy.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:24:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> They might be akin to gorditas (the real thing, not the Taco Bell version).
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:24:08 PM EDT] <Evie> Sounds interesting. Will need to hunt down recipes.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:24:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Except that I think gorditas are closer to tacos than to a filled pastry.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:24:33 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Had some today for lunch. My best friend owns a guademalan cafe.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:24:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yum!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:24:41 PM EDT] <derynifank> Papoose, Indian word for baby?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:24:52 PM EDT] <Evie> Does Taco Bell serve anything that resembles genuine Mexican food? :-D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:25:00 PM EDT] <Shiral> I doubt it
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:25:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> When I googled, it looked like the most common spelling for the food is "pupusa."
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:25:09 PM EDT] <derynifank> Don't think so
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:25:12 PM EDT] <bynw> no taco bell is all texmex
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:25:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:25:32 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Pocket
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:25:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And not a great imitation of decent Tex-Mex, but it serves when one is hungry and broke and/or in a hurry. :D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:26:05 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> American doggies?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:27:05 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> I guess nobody got that one
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:27:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm not sure to what you were referring. ;)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:27:18 PM EDT] <Shiral> My mother used to make tacos from a recipe she learned from a friend's mother in her girlhood. This woman's name was Peggy Davis which is about as Anglo as you can think of, but her taco recipe was probably more authentic than Taco Bell's
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:27:20 PM EDT] <Evie> Gigi is giving me a look like "Why do you have your annoying arms in the way of my lap seat?"
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:27:27 PM EDT] <Evie> I got it, Deer. :-D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:27:32 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> "pupusa"
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:27:36 PM EDT] <Evie> Pup-USA, DR
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:27:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ah
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:27:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My brain didn't go there. :P
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:27:54 PM EDT] <KK> I spotted the American doggies earlier.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:27:56 PM EDT] <Shiral> I have flat pussycats, today
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:28:09 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Well, at least my deerest got it. Heh
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:28:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I hear tell it's a bit warm in Northern California.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:28:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I phoned my aunt (who lives near Sacramento) because her and my uncle'
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:28:30 PM EDT] <Evie> Maybe we share a brain, TD. Maybe I should get my brain decontaminated. :-D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:28:35 PM EDT] <Shiral> We've had a heat wave lately, but it's tapering off, where I am.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:28:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> uncle's wedding anniversary was last Sunday, and I wanted to know whether they were safe from the fires.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:28:45 PM EDT] <KK> I gathered that it was hot in Shiral-land.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:29:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Her voice was hoarse from the smoke in the air, which concerns me for both her and my uncle (he had a pacemaker implanted a few years ago).
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:29:02 PM EDT] <Shiral> It has been, although luckily I'm not personally near any major fires
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:29:09 PM EDT] <KK> Cool here, after another rain shower an hour or so ago.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:29:18 PM EDT] <Evie> Luke is steadily creeping across my chest as if he thinks I won't notice
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:29:20 PM EDT] <derynifank> I hope there wee no fires near them.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:29:22 PM EDT] <KK> Humid, though, and has been, for nearly a week.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:29:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It won't be cool here until October, probably.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:29:29 PM EDT] <Evie> Oh dear, DR, that doesn't sound good.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:29:35 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Too late, Evie
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:29:47 PM EDT] <Shiral> "Shiral land..... I wonder if I can get the name officially adopted? =o)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:29:50 PM EDT] <jemler> when it drops into thre 90's?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:29:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm going to call her again next week (her birthday is 17 August) and see how they're doing then.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:30:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Everybody in the world gets pregnant around the holidays. It is absolutely UNREAL how many people I know who have birthdays between late July and mid-September.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:30:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (And I have zero room to talk, as the Pod-Child's birthday is 8 Sept.) :D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:30:50 PM EDT] <derynifank> we're alternating between big storms and heat with high humidity
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:30:55 PM EDT] <Shiral> My SIL's birthday in September 25th
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:31:29 PM EDT] <Evie> DD's is September 19
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:31:40 PM EDT] <Shiral> My mother's birthday was yesterday
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:31:54 PM EDT] <bynw> well around the holidays people are inside and keeping warm thus babies can easily be made
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:31:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:31:55 PM EDT] <Shiral> And she has two good friends who share August 11 with her
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:31:57 PM EDT] <derynifank> hope she had a happy birthday
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:32:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's in the chat topic, Shiral. :D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:32:19 PM EDT] <Evie> Yes, people tend to frown on baby-making out in the public thoroughfare.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:32:21 PM EDT] <Shiral> We had a very nice party, mostly family but with two good family friends.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:32:23 PM EDT] <Bee> is a pupusa more like a pocket or a wrap?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:32:23 PM EDT] <Bee> we have clusters of March, September and December birthdays.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:32:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Pocket, I think, Bee.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:32:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My mom is also 11 August.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:33:08 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> It means pocket
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:33:12 PM EDT] <Dennis> Lots of March and August B-days in my extended family.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:33:19 PM EDT] <Shiral> My brother's birthday is March 30, and his son was born on April 7th, although there were a few intervening years between the events
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:33:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> We have a late-December to early-February cluster in my family.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:33:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And a huge cluster from July to September.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:33:49 PM EDT] <Evie> My grandmother's birthdays are coming up. She celebrated the 16th all her life, but then found out her birth certificate said it was the 20th. Or maybe the other way around. Either way, she was never sure which date was actually correct after that.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:34:15 PM EDT] <Shiral> I'm February, my sister is the end of May, my Step mother is in mid June, and my oldest brother and my dad were both November babies
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:34:22 PM EDT] <Evie> It was recorded back in the days of home births being the norm, and so it's likely she was actually born on the 16th, but it wasn't recorded until the 20th.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:34:36 PM EDT] <Bee> We even have one Christmas child.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:35:20 PM EDT] <Evie> I had two uncles born on Christmas Eve, although in different years. And my grandmother named them Jesus and Emmanuel. (Not all that unusual in the Philippines.)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:35:26 PM EDT] <derynifank> I have one Nov 30. She says that's too close to Christmas
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:35:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My stepdad's legal birthday is 15 May, but his mom always swore he'd been born a little before midnight on the 14th. Also a home birth.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:36:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I feel her pain, derynifank. Mine is 12 January. It can really suck having a birthday close to Christmas.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:36:16 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Me Feb, mom D-day, dad Nov, brother 1 hour after Xmas
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:36:17 PM EDT] <derynifank> Other DD is March 20, spring equinox
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:36:19 PM EDT] <Shiral> Split the difference and have a two day party. =o)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:36:31 PM EDT] <Evie> Mine is December 5. I used to hate getting "Birthday/Christmas" presents.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:36:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Although one of my friends from middle and high school was born on Christmas day.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:36:57 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Felt bad for Bro
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:37:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, my youngest brother is 26 Dec.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:37:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Sucks.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:37:14 PM EDT] <Shiral> Six weeks after Christmas for me
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:37:39 PM EDT] <Bee> I believe our Christmas-born niece gets a celebration of June 25.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:37:40 PM EDT] <derynifank> That's rough, no way you don't lose out in the present department
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:37:46 PM EDT] <Evie> When our kids were younger, we celebrated "unbirthdays" on the six-month date from their actual birthday.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:38:04 PM EDT] <derynifank> that sound cool.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:38:21 PM EDT] <Evie> Although we didn't really give unbirthday gifts, just had dinner out or some other similar treat.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:38:54 PM EDT] <Shiral> Sounds like a good solution for Christmas Babies who want their day to be the star and not have to compete with Christmas
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:38:55 PM EDT] <Evie> Since a year seems like forever when you're a little kid, so having something to celebrate every six months was more fun
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:39:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I tried to do that one year, because I wanted to have a beach party (which isn't really a great idea in January in the northern hemisphere), but we never did get the party scheduled, never mind held, so I went back to celebrating on my actual birthday, close to Christmas or not, the following year.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:40:01 PM EDT] <Evie> Yes. Or in the case of a fall and winter child, that meant they could do something fun like have an outdoor summer sleepover or whatnot.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:40:39 PM EDT] <KK> There was a wonderful Unbirthday song in one of the Disney movies. ALice in Wonderland, perhaps?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:40:41 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> My cousin was born 1970 but is only on his 12th/13th birthday
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:40:57 PM EDT] <Evie> Leap Year baby?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:41:13 PM EDT] <Bee> Was it Robert Louis Stevenson who gave his birthday to a child who'd been born on Christmas?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:41:29 PM EDT] <derynifank> For the winter child, we had a sleepover at a hotel with a pool.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:41:51 PM EDT] <Evie> DD had a friend in elementary school who had her 10th birthday the same week her dad had his "10th," since he was also a Leap Year birth.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:41:53 PM EDT] <Bee> "A very merry unbirthday to you.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:42:18 PM EDT] <derynifank> I think the unbirthday song was in Alice in Wonderland but not really sure
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:42:47 PM EDT] <Dennis> I *think* it was AiW, but it might have been the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:42:55 PM EDT] <KK> Let's all congratulate me with a present--I agree! A very merry unbirthday to me.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:43:03 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Yep. Leap year
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:43:03 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:43:09 PM EDT] <Dennis> Alice in Wonderland.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:43:13 PM EDT] <Bee> I think so too. The mad Hatter and the March Hare sang it.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:43:28 PM EDT] <derynifank> That sounds right
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:43:32 PM EDT] <KK> That's the wone.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:43:36 PM EDT] <KK> one
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:44:09 PM EDT] <Evie> "wone" sounds like a word that would fit into Jabberwocky
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:44:21 PM EDT] <Dennis> Um... my undying respect and affection for being a wonderful author and kind to your fans, KK? I know that and two bucks still won't get your on the DC Metro, but it's all I've got at the moement. :)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:44:35 PM EDT] <jemler> twas twillig
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:44:43 PM EDT] <Bee> brillig
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:44:49 PM EDT] <derynifank> Either it's getting readyto storm or it suddenly getting dark REALLY early
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:45:05 PM EDT] <KK> And the slithy toves did gyre and gimbel in the wabe....
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:45:09 PM EDT] <Dennis> The Slithy Toves is a great name for a band.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:45:10 PM EDT] <Evie> and the slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe. All mimsy were the borogoves, and the mome raths outgrabe.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:45:28 PM EDT] <Dennis> As is Mimsy and the Borogoves.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:45:28 PM EDT] <Bee> Allll mimsy were the borogroves,
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:45:30 PM EDT] <Shiral> Can you cast wards against Slithy toves?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:45:41 PM EDT] <KK> I should think so.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:45:54 PM EDT] <Evie> That's my new insult. "You slithy tove, you!"
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:45:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> Let them into the house and you'll never be rid of them
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:46:00 PM EDT] <KK> At least you can protect against the monsters under the bed.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:46:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:46:25 PM EDT] <Evie> I used to have monster repellant for the monsters under DS's and DD's beds.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:46:42 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Geico commercial.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:46:57 PM EDT] <Evie> It was actually a raspberry body spray that MIL gave me one Christmas. I didn't want to smell like a parfait, but it worked great as monster repellant.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:47:06 PM EDT] <Shiral> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:47:08 PM EDT] <KK> Incidentally, I have been loving the Calvin and Hobbes story that someone posted the link to, all week. What a sweet story.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:47:16 PM EDT] <derynifank> Will Geico insure you against monsters?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:47:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The Pod-Child didn't seem to be afraid of the monsters under the bed, possibly because my cousin who's about four years older than she is had a habit of pretending to be a monster to amuse the family littles who were younger than he.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:47:22 PM EDT] <Shiral> Good way to recycle, Evie
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:47:49 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Never saw that commercial DF?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:48:12 PM EDT] <Dennis> I saw a funny facebook meme about you can turn pretty much any noun into an insult by putting you in front of it and any word into a euphemism for drunkenness by added -ed.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:48:13 PM EDT] <Evie> The problem was, I ran out of that particular bottle and had to buy more, but couldn't find the same brand, so I had to settle for another raspberry-scented spray. But the kids could tell the difference, and they were convinced it didn't work as well.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:48:15 PM EDT] <Bee> I once scared my younger sister by hiding in her bedroom closet and creeping out.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:48:18 PM EDT] <derynifank> Don't think so
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:48:21 PM EDT] <KK> My sister and I worried about the belt-monsters in the closet, where the real belts hung on hooks on the back of the door.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:48:30 PM EDT] <Dennis> Ah, you slithy tove, you missed a time. We got absolutely borogoved, we did.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:48:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, Dennis
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:49:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> So Kiddo associated monsters with playing with her cousin. Not very scary, but probably better that way. :)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:49:25 PM EDT] <KK> Little plastic tongues sticking out under the bottom of the door. That door always had to be closed unti it clicked, for us to be safe.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:49:45 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:50:08 PM EDT] <Bee> I was once terrified by a patch of light on my bedroom closet that looked like a skeleton. I refused to sleep in the room for several nights.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:50:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> If you use "utterly" rather than "absolutely," the gerundive becomes a synonym for "puzzled."
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:50:36 PM EDT] <Evie> I went through a phase of changing clothes in my closet, because I had a poster of the Osmonds on my wall, and it looked like their eyes were following me no matter where I stood in my room.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:50:41 PM EDT] <Evie> It was disconcerting. :-D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:50:50 PM EDT] <Dennis> I am lost. I'm i'm utterly brilliged here, DR.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:51:01 PM EDT] <Evie> I didn't want to be responsible for corrupting an entire Mormon quintet. ;-)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:51:01 PM EDT] <derynifank> My youngest was afraid of monsters under her bed, Her solution was to get in someone else's bed
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:51:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> One of my online friends uses a tag on her posts about language that reads, "Go home, English. You're drunk."
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:51:14 PM EDT] <Bee> I used to be bothered by my dolls staring at me.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:52:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Three kid languages stacked on top of one another under a trenchcoat, pretending to be a real, grown-up language. ;)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:52:20 PM EDT] <KK> Gus has just joined me, sitting on my lap and licking my hand. Hard to type that way.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:52:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Gus!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:52:26 PM EDT] <Evie> Language mugger
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:52:37 PM EDT] <Shiral> Gus, you've incapussitated the Author
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:52:41 PM EDT] * Bee scritches Gus.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:52:44 PM EDT] <Dennis> All the faith he had had had had no effect on the outcome of his life. - Grammatically correct, because English.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:52:49 PM EDT] <Evie> It's harder to type when the cat insists on lying across both wrists. I am looking at you, Luke!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:52:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup. We don't borrow words from other languages. We chase them down dark alleys, beat them up, and rifle through their pockets for spare vocabulary. :D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:53:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Luke.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:53:07 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> When my brother and I were young we put our Halloween (monsters) costumes on hangers in the closet and insisted to my mom there were monsters in the closet. Scared the bejeezes out of her.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:53:22 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:53:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And she didn't kill you both? I admire her self-restraint.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:53:27 PM EDT] <Dennis> Missy is atop her perch feeling disgusted, because we had to put some ointment near her eye today.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:53:41 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> She tried, lol.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:53:43 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:54:14 PM EDT] <jemler> brb. dinner. spaghetti and meatballs.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:54:21 PM EDT] <Dennis> Does everyone else's cats have lots of nicknames? Because Missy has like 15, I think.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:54:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys is crashed out on the +3 Chair of Somnolence, which is why I'm not becatted.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:54:26 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> But my father laughed so hard. (He didn't fare well)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:54:48 PM EDT] <Evie> :-D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:54:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yes. Carys is "Fuzz-Butt," "Silly (Baby) Girl," "Little Miss Purr," and an assortment of others.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:54:53 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yup, cats have nicknames. Some of them are too silly to be repeated
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:55:03 PM EDT] <derynifank> I had a dog that had about 8 or so
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:55:16 PM EDT] <Dennis> My favorite Missy nickname is She Who Arises and Meows.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:55:17 PM EDT] <Shiral> Tati is "Tati Baby Bird" because she has a mew like a little bird chirp
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:55:21 PM EDT] <Evie> Lukie Bukie and Chubbybubble here
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:55:42 PM EDT] <Shiral> Dmitri is Mr. Mookums. I have NO idea where it came from other than my having blurted it out, one day
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:55:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Roxie was like Tati, with the little mew rather than an adult-cat meow.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:56:04 PM EDT] <Dennis> She's also the Empress, Miss, Catface Jones, and Plow Cat, among others.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:56:07 PM EDT] <Evie> Gigi does that
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:56:10 PM EDT] <Bee> Melantha is the mini-panther. or sometimes Silly-cat.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:56:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh yes, Carys is also sometimes "House-Tiger."
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:56:27 PM EDT] <Shiral> Tati also watches birds as if she's thinking "Wow! Flying snacks!"
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:56:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:56:47 PM EDT] Join Eyikl (Eyikl@OWIRCN-700764a1.ma.comcast.net) has joined this channel.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:56:59 PM EDT] <Bee> Hi eyiki
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:56:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Chessa, the long-haired calico cat who hangs out in my parents' neighborhood, can catch a bird in flight.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:57:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Eyikl
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:57:07 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hi Eyikl
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:57:08 PM EDT] <derynifank> Hi Eyiki
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:57:12 PM EDT] <Dennis> Wow. Nice.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:57:12 PM EDT] <Eyikl> hi everyone
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:57:25 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Hi, Eyikl
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:57:31 PM EDT] <Dennis> I'm friends with a married couple who call their oldest can Apocalypse Meow.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:57:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My mom watched Chessa crouch in the grass in my parents' backyard and then nab an unwary bird who flew too low.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:57:38 PM EDT] <Evie> Hi Eyikl
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:57:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> ROFL, Dennis!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:57:48 PM EDT] <Dennis> Hi, Eyiki!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:57:55 PM EDT] <derynifank> I haad a cat who could catch flies in flight. Really miss that cat
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:58:17 PM EDT] <Shiral> Isadora of loving memory was once sneaking up on some birds on the ground and I frightened them away. You should have SEEN the dirty look she gave me!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:59:06 PM EDT] <Eyikl> Did you frighten them on purpose?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:59:12 PM EDT] <Dennis> And I call one of my MiL's cats Gollum, because she has a thin line of while around her mouth that reminds me of the Rankin-Bass animated version of Gollum, and she appears infrequently, usually after dark.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:59:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Chessa technically belongs to the household whose property is catty-corner (ha) from my parents' lot, but the wife of that couple is too allergic to cats to let them come inside, but she feeds Chessa and Tig (Merlin's mom) and has put cat doors on her garage and her lawn building so they can get in out of rain or other bad weather.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:59:24 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yes. I didn't want her bringing me any "presents."
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [7:59:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Tig sticks close to home, but Chessa makes the rounds of the neighborhood because she knows that some of the neighbors (*cough*myparents*cough*) will feed her.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:00:12 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> My cat when I was a kid had the same name as I. "Jesus, Mary and Joseph!" I didn't know my real name until I was 8, I believe
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:00:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:00:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The Kiddo was talking about how her coworkers think she's Catholic because of what she says at work when she's exasperated.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:00:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> "Oh for the love of all that's holy!"
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:01:17 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Heh
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:01:46 PM EDT] <Dennis> Just from reading than, I'm 7 again. :)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:01:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> We're not, but my mom's brother's wife's family is, and my uncle converted a few years ago, prompting the congregation at their church to go, "What? He's not already Catholic!"
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:02:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> He'd been attending Mass (but not taking communion) for a couple of decades before he converted, LOL.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:02:41 PM EDT] <Bee> I "rescued" a bird from our cat, but it was too badly injured and it died. I still feel guilty about not putting it out of its suffering.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:04:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> But the Kiddo is just trying not to use ACTUAL cuss words at work. :)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:05:39 PM EDT] * DesertRose drops a pin.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:05:39 PM EDT] <Evie> My former roommate accidentally left-turned into the path of an oncoming 18-wheeler before realizing it, and she blurted out "Sheemaninners!" We had no idea where that one came from, but we used it from then on. :-D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:05:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:06:15 PM EDT] <Shiral> That would give you an adrenaline jolt, all right
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:06:23 PM EDT] <Evie> I was too busy white-knuckling the door handle, since that truck was coming at us on MY side of the car!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:06:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My brothers' mom used to say "hecky-darn" when she was annoyed but didn't want to swear around small children (read: me and her daughter when we were little, and then my niblings once they came along).
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:06:31 PM EDT] <KK> Sure would. Did he stop in time?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:06:39 PM EDT] <Evie> I'm still here. :-D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:06:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, that'd be a white-knuckle moment for sure!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:06:50 PM EDT] <Shiral> An inarguable point
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:07:14 PM EDT] <KK> An E-coupon attraction, as we used to say when Disneyland still had separate coupons for the various rides.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:07:36 PM EDT] <Evie> She had at least one accident per year the entire time I knew her. Riding in her car was great for building up my prayer life. ;-)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:07:41 PM EDT] <Bee> I've heard it's common in Texas to invent words like "dagnabbit!" or "tarnation!" as a substitute for swear-words.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:07:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:08:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Those words are fairly common across the South and Southwest, IME.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:08:16 PM EDT] <Evie> yes,I grew up hearing "dagnabbit"
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:08:25 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or "doggone it."
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:08:25 PM EDT] <derynifank> You were really brave tto keep riding with her
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:08:31 PM EDT] <Shiral> Reintarnation--When the cowboy you were in a previous life makes an appearance
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:08:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:08:41 PM EDT] <Bee> or consarn it
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:08:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I like that, Shiral.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:08:50 PM EDT] <Evie> I sometimes didn't have much choice. She knew Birmingham much better than I did, and those were the days long before GPS
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:09:10 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> My mother sounded like a Klingon on helium when she tried not to swear.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:09:14 PM EDT] <jemler> we have yosemite sam to thank for that.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:09:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> ROFL!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:09:34 PM EDT] <Shiral> LOL, interesting image, TD!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:09:36 PM EDT] <derynifank> I love the klingon on helium
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:09:57 PM EDT] <Shiral> I'm think "Worf sounding like Betty Boop."
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:10:00 PM EDT] <KK> So do I.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:10:04 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:10:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Slightly related, one of my guildmates in an online game I play said in guild chat that she was going to reboot her computer because it was "stuck on stupid."
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:10:30 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Wow, I even made myself laugh.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:10:47 PM EDT] <Bee> What does a Klingon on helium sound like?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:10:49 PM EDT] <derynifank> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:11:07 PM EDT] <Shiral> A swearing Klingon would be quite something to hear, even if you don't understand what they say
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:11:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> A low-pitched squeak, if that's possible? :D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:11:20 PM EDT] <Evie> It sounds like Deer-hart's mom, apparently
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:11:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I saw a post online about someone's dad having come into their room to yell at them in Klingon, and the person was wondering whether they should be more ashamed of whatever they'd done or that they understood the Riot Act in Klingon.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:12:00 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> My mom trying not swear = Klingon on helium. Don't know how to describe it
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:12:16 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL, DR
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:12:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Part of the Riot Act had included that the person was "a disgrace to the Empire," and one of the comments said that they should be most ashamed of being a disgrace to the Empire. :D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:13:20 PM EDT] <Evie> :-D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:13:56 PM EDT] <Evie> When I made my lightsaber, I included a warning label in Aurebesh (the Star Wars alphabet) on the hilt that said "This end towards user."
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:14:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Switching fandoms, "If you REALLY want to curse, try Troll." :D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:14:09 PM EDT] <Shiral> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:14:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:14:11 PM EDT] <Bee> LOL!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:15:13 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> "Stick with the pointy end. "
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:15:46 PM EDT] <Evie> Aurebesh has a one-to-one correspondence to our alphabet, so you can download the font and translate anything into Aurebesh by typing it in English.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:15:52 PM EDT] <derynifank> I don't think light sabers have a pointy end. just a really hot one
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:15:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Like that cover for a spare tire on some Jeep models that reads, "No Problem," but under that, in upside-down letters, it reads, "Problem."
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:16:11 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:16:18 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> It was a GOT reference actually.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:16:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> If the wheels are on top, you have a vehicular problem. :D

[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:17:03 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hi Jerusha

[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:17:04 PM EDT] <derynifank> jerusha
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:17:10 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hi Everyone. Sorry to be late
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:17:17 PM EDT] <Evie> I know His Brattiness wuvs me.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:17:24 PM EDT] <Bee> glad you came
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:17:31 PM EDT] * DesertRose smacks Jerusha with a wet spaghetti noodle for being late to chat. ;)
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:17:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Now where did I put the marinara and alfredo sauces? :D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:18:07 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Family din din and puppy play time
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:18:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh, well, then, all is forgiven.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:18:15 PM EDT] <DesertRose> :D
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:18:23 PM EDT] <Evie> Did you get my email, Jerusha?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:18:27 PM EDT] <jemler> Hey DR! get your own plate!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:18:31 PM EDT] * TheDeryni checks his watch and shakes his head at Jerusha
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:18:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:18:36 PM EDT] <Evie> I wasn't sure if the address I used was still current.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:18:37 PM EDT] <derynifank> Speaking of cat names (going back) you should read TS Eliot's poem on the naming of cats
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:19:18 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I have to check. Hopefully it arrived. Just did mounds of dishes.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:19:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I have read that poem, but it's been a while since I tackled T. S. Eliot. The cat poems are pretty straightforward, but some of his other stuff is . . . not.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:19:32 PM EDT] <Evie> Luke is also known as Turdblossom at times. Or Reversikitty, if he has a tummy upset.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:19:51 PM EDT] <Bee> There's a series of mystery novels in which the story is narrated by the private eye's dog.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:19:53 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Oops
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:20:33 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Colourful names
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:20:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> BRB, tea glass is empty and I need to finish making the new pitcher.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:20:57 PM EDT] <derynifank> There is a series of mysteries narrated by a family of cats and dogs
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:21:28 PM EDT] <Bee> Midnight Louis?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:22:46 PM EDT] <derynifank> And the author has a cat as a co-author named sneaky pie Brown. Great name for a detective.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:23:20 PM EDT] <Bee> Rita Mae Brown. I've reaad most of her books.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:24:02 PM EDT] <derynifank> Love the animal dialog
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:24:17 PM EDT] <Evie> I've finally taken my novel manuscript (original novel, not fanfic) out of storage and am in the process of line edits and rewrites.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:24:24 PM EDT] <jemler> wasn't she in 'Ghost'?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:24:42 PM EDT] <derynifank> Good for you Evie
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:24:55 PM EDT] <Jerusha> What is that one about, Evie?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:25:11 PM EDT] <Evie> Although I still have to rewrite the final chapter before I'm happy with it.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:25:39 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Totally understand that
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:25:49 PM EDT] <KK> Gotta run, guys. Scott is making hungry-husband noises in the kitchen.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:26:01 PM EDT] <Shiral> Bye, KK. HAve a good week
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:26:04 PM EDT] <KK> See you next week, same time as usual.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:26:04 PM EDT] <Bee> Do you have an agent or a publisher, Evie?
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:26:08 PM EDT] <jemler> nite kk
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:26:14 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Nighters KK
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:26:18 PM EDT] <derynifank> night KK
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:26:18 PM EDT] <TheDeryni> Bye KK!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:26:29 PM EDT] <Bee> byeKK. Have a good week, ditto to LBM
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:26:32 PM EDT] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:26:37 PM EDT] <Evie> It's the fantasy set in a quasi-Ancient-Mediterranean type region, with a protagonist who is sort of a priestess/forensic investigator whose job entails investigating deaths under mysterious or suspicious circumstances and bringing justice to the dead as required.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:26:43 PM EDT] <KK> Thanks, all. Nighters.
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:26:53 PM EDT] <Evie> Goodnight, KK!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:27:03 PM EDT] <derynifank> That sounds intriguing
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:27:04 PM EDT] <Jerusha> That sounds good!
[Sunday, August 12, 2018] [8:27:05 PM EDT] 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.)
