[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:09:40 PM EST] <bynw> Hi KK
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:09:43 PM EST] <Evie> You're about to be left on the side of the road, kid! ;-)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:09:43 PM EST] <Laurna> Just a bit furthur dear
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:09:45 PM EST] <Evie> Hi KK!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:09:48 PM EST] <Laurna> Hello KK
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:09:59 PM EST] <bynw> i take it you didnt make it to the con formerly known as Darkover
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:10:08 PM EST] <KK> Hello, folks. I'm here after all.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:10:14 PM EST] <Evie> Howdy
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:10:26 PM EST] <KK> Nope, had to cancel at the last minute.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:10:40 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:10:49 PM EST] <Laurna> Hope your Thanksgiving went well. KK
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:10:52 PM EST] <KK> Hi, DR. How's it going?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:11:01 PM EST] <bynw> thats a bummer, it happens though
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:11:17 PM EST] <Jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:11:22 PM EST] <KK> Thanksgiving was great. They had Oysters Rockefeller for the first time, on the appetizer table.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:11:42 PM EST] <Laurna> Was that tasty?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:11:56 PM EST] <DesertRose> It's going. I had to go afk just before you came in because I heard something fall in another room. Nothing major, just Carys making a pest of herself.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:12:01 PM EST] <KK> Oh, yes. Hadn't had them in years, but they were as good as I remembered.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:12:22 PM EST] <Jemler> never ate oysters.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:12:37 PM EST] <Laurna> I have had claims but never tried oysters
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:12:39 PM EST] <DesertRose> I'm the Family Changeling who doesn't like seafood.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:13:09 PM EST] <Evie> I don't either, despite being half Filipina
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:13:32 PM EST] <KK> Jemler, they're served on the half-shell, with bacon and cream and spinach on top and place under the broiler to cook. Very yummy!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:13:34 PM EST] <DesertRose> I'm just the only person in my family who doesn't like to eat anything that ever swam as its primary means of movement.

[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:13:45 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi Bee
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:13:47 PM EST] <bynw> hi Bee
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:13:47 PM EST] <Jemler> hi bee
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:13:47 PM EST] <KK> Hi, Bee.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:13:49 PM EST] <Laurna> Yumm
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:13:57 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi everryone
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:14:10 PM EST] <KK> Oysters don't swim, so you'd be save. ;-)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:14:15 PM EST] <Jemler> never had oysters or lobster
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:14:19 PM EST] <bynw> i'm with you DesertRose, I'm not a fan of seafood but i dont live on a peninsula though :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:14:23 PM EST] <Jemler> or caviar
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:14:24 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL, well, no, but they live in the water.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:14:44 PM EST] <Evie> I'm the same way about any food of aquatic origin
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:14:55 PM EST] <DesertRose> I guess having been born in the desert left its mark on me. :P
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:14:58 PM EST] <Laurna> I love seafood
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:14:58 PM EST] <Jemler> love shrimp
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:15:02 PM EST] <KK> I want to know who first decided that lobsters (or shrimp) might be good to eat. Very hungry people, I'm sure.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:15:09 PM EST] <The_Bee> not me. I love me some fish.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:15:10 PM EST] <DesertRose> Probably.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:15:13 PM EST] <Evie> I was born in FL, so I don't even have that excuse
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:15:20 PM EST] <bynw> give me cow or tasty piggies or chickens or something but nothing that swims or is a giant sea based spider
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:15:46 PM EST] <KK> Yep, big bugs. But oysters Rockefeller are in a class by themselves.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:15:55 PM EST] <Laurna> lobster is wonderful.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:16:03 PM EST] <DesertRose> Heck, I'll even eat vegetarian meals. But no critters that lived in the water.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:16:25 PM EST] <KK> I grew up in South Florida, so there was always fresh seafood.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:16:48 PM EST] <DesertRose> I more or less grew up in Charleston, SC, so it's not like I didn't have access to fresh seafood. I just don't like it. :D
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:16:53 PM EST] <Laurna> Conk fritters was a favorite and abaloni
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:16:57 PM EST] <Jemler> you never had a filet of fish from mcds?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:17:02 PM EST] <The_Bee> scallops wrapped in bacon. YUM!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:17:03 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yuk, no!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:17:20 PM EST] <DesertRose> (to the McDonald's)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:17:24 PM EST] <Laurna> Reall scallops are fantastic
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:17:53 PM EST] <Laurna> Most imatation scallops are actually rays
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:17:54 PM EST] <bynw> if i'm going to be forced to eat seafood, i want it fresh, which really limits my options in Iowa
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:18:12 PM EST] <The_Bee> Salmon and bluefish are the reasons God made oceans and rivers.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:18:30 PM EST] <bynw> yuck salmon is nasty
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:18:30 PM EST] <DesertRose> Speaking of food and the Charleston area, my family and I are all in mourning because our favorite barbecue joint is closing; they're planning to continue catering, but they're closing the restaurant.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:18:38 PM EST] <Laurna> I lived on a boat for two years. if it was fresh, it was delicious.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:19:00 PM EST] <bynw> now i've had fresh lake perch before that wasnt bad but still i prefer corn eating cows
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:19:18 PM EST] <The_Bee> corn that eats cows?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:19:22 PM EST] <Evie> That's some fierce corn right there, eating those cows!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:19:25 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:19:34 PM EST] <Laurna> LOL
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:19:38 PM EST] <KK> lol
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:19:47 PM EST] <bynw> they might here
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:19:49 PM EST] <Jemler> they tore down a great place here. i grew up on Orlanda's Pizza. it went out of business years ago.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:19:53 PM EST] <DesertRose> Carys says "Hi" and purrs at the chat. Apparently since she didn't get any particular attention by knocking a lid off a bin, she's decided to sit on me.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:20:04 PM EST] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:20:14 PM EST] <Evie> I am in a cat-free zone tonight
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:20:31 PM EST] <Laurna> Where is luke an gigi
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:20:34 PM EST] <bynw> i'm not ... she is staring at me right now
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:20:36 PM EST] <Evie> At home
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:20:42 PM EST] <Laurna> ah
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:21:08 PM EST] <Jemler> My three favorite things are eating my family and not using commas.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:21:10 PM EST] <The_Bee> Melantha's around here ssomewhere.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:21:15 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:21:18 PM EST] <Laurna> hehe Bynw I just rolled VI, VI, VI on my new dice
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:21:32 PM EST] <Evie> Oh, I got my dice this week too!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:21:41 PM EST] <DesertRose> I like the one about JFK and Stalin (re commas).
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:21:58 PM EST] <The_Bee> ??
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:22:01 PM EST] <Jemler> i don't know that one.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:22:45 PM EST] <DesertRose> "We invited the [dancers] JFK and Stalin," for a value of dancers that implies pasties and pole dancing. I think it came from Eats Shoots and Leaves, because there's a weird little cartoon.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:23:26 PM EST] <bynw> yeah but those dont count for the game Laurna
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:23:45 PM EST] <Laurna> Shoot too bad. HEHE
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:24:02 PM EST] <Evie> What if we send you a video of us rolling the dice, Bynw?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:24:18 PM EST] <bynw> well as long as its live :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:24:23 PM EST] <Evie> :-D
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:24:33 PM EST] <Laurna> we can just roll a thousand times before sending the one we like.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:24:53 PM EST] <bynw> so google hangout, skype, i cant do facetime as i dont have an apple device
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:25:04 PM EST] <DesertRose> Discord has a video chat option. :P
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:25:46 PM EST] <bynw> tjat
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:26:11 PM EST] <bynw> er that's true discord does as well but again it would have to be live, and discord is limited to like 10 people though
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:27:10 PM EST] <DesertRose> Well, you the GM and what, five players?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:27:29 PM EST] <DesertRose> That's only six people, easy to do a group message with video chat. :P
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:27:50 PM EST] <bynw> just sayin' it has limitations when it comes to video chats. should check it out sometime
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:27:58 PM EST] <DesertRose> I'm just giving you grief. :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:29:20 PM EST] <Evie> Am I still connected, or did we just go quiet?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:29:39 PM EST] <DesertRose> You're still here.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:29:49 PM EST] <Evie> OK
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:29:50 PM EST] <bynw> there was a 2 minute or so silent part
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:30:42 PM EST] <Evie> My login screen suddenly came up, so I wasn't sure if I got disconnected when that happened
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:30:50 PM EST] <Laurna> A friend sent a picture of the bride, my sister, But I don't yet have a good picture of both of us.

[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:35:11 PM EST] <DesertRose> Did you celebrate Wolfenoot with the dogs, jerusha?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:35:39 PM EST] <jerusha> Was that her wedding dress, Laurna?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:35:50 PM EST] <jerusha> Wolfenoot?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:35:52 PM EST] <Evie> Lovely!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:35:59 PM EST] <Laurna> yes she was sewing in the sleeves friday night
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:36:11 PM EST] <jerusha> Beautiful!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:36:26 PM EST] <Laurna> She was beautiful
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:36:37 PM EST] <DesertRose> It's a holiday, dreamed up by a little kid in New Zealand, to be celebrated on 23 November, in honor of wolves, dogs, and people who are good to canines.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:36:43 PM EST] <The_Bee> What era is that dress from?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:36:53 PM EST] <DesertRose> Wow, Laurna!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:37:00 PM EST] <Laurna> The dress is 1869
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:37:02 PM EST] <jerusha> VictorianÉ
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:37:03 PM EST] <Laurna> ish

[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:37:46 PM EST] <jerusha> You had one as well, Laurna?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:37:47 PM EST] <Laurna> Shelly is the lady in red she is a friend
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:38:01 PM EST] <Laurna> Yes My dress was deep red.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:38:13 PM EST] <jerusha> Sounds delightful
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:38:20 PM EST] <DesertRose> Ooh, pretty! Hopefully someone got a good photo, Laurna.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:39:07 PM EST] <DesertRose> Even if said good photo hasn't made its way to you yet.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:39:19 PM EST] <Laurna> this isn't the best pic but here it is. https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/46651176_10217887811010935_2182919417409568768_n.jpg?_nc_cat=104&_nc_ht=scontent-lax3-1.xx&oh=f2c717b74293bca1214c3ed8786175df&oe=5C7A494A
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:39:44 PM EST] <DesertRose> Oh, wow!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:39:45 PM EST] <Evie> nice! That's DD's favorite color
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:39:51 PM EST] <DesertRose> Who's the gent in the kilt?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:40:15 PM EST] <Laurna> That would be Jaimey
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:40:16 PM EST] <jerusha> Wow - and groom in full formal kilt?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:40:23 PM EST] <DesertRose> Your new brother-in-law?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:40:29 PM EST] <Laurna> It was a scotish hand fasting
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:40:34 PM EST] <Laurna> Yes
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:40:35 PM EST] <DesertRose> Oh cool!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:40:40 PM EST] <jerusha> Awesome
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:41:16 PM EST] <KK> Very nice. I was going to ask about the gentlemen.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:41:19 PM EST] <jerusha> And you found someone to do the Victorian hairstyles.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:41:41 PM EST] <DesertRose> Holy cow, yes. That kind of hairstyling is intricate and not a lot of people still know how to do it.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:41:48 PM EST] <Jemler> the guy in the kilt reminds me of Bruce Mcgill (Rizzolli & Isles)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:42:03 PM EST] <Laurna> Yes The gal was great, trouble was the venue was suppose to open for us at 9am but they did not open until 10:30am.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:42:20 PM EST] <Laurna> That rushed the hair dresser and put us an hour behind
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:42:41 PM EST] <jerusha> Nothing ever goes as planned....
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:42:50 PM EST] <DesertRose> There's a YouTube channel run by a hairdresser who is also a history buff about how to do historical hairstyles. I believe her first name is Janet, but I can't remember her surname right now.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:43:18 PM EST] <The_Bee> Jemler, was Bruce McGill from the books or the tv show?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:43:27 PM EST] <Laurna> Tracy does all historical hair styles and is based in SanDiago.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:43:29 PM EST] <Jemler> tv show.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:43:34 PM EST] <DesertRose> (Spoiler alert: A lot of the hairstyles you see in historical paintings entail hairpieces.)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:43:43 PM EST] <Jemler> he was the actor.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:43:48 PM EST] <Laurna> aye they do
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:44:17 PM EST] <The_Bee> Ah. I've been watcching R&I in teruns, but I don't recaall McGill
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:44:39 PM EST] <DesertRose> Some of them you can do with someone's own hair, but a lot of the intricate braided things you see (think Italian Renaissance) involve not-the-lady's-own hair.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:44:43 PM EST] <Laurna> fine blond hair does not stay curled like that for very long.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:44:50 PM EST] <Jemler> he played Korsak.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:44:59 PM EST] <DesertRose> Fine hair doesn't generally hold a curl for long. :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:45:00 PM EST] <The_Bee> Oh yes!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:45:04 PM EST] <KK> And fine blomde hair is slithery, too.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:45:09 PM EST] <jerusha> I could lend you my Pig tail curls if you need them
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:45:24 PM EST] <jerusha> The bane of my existance
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:45:26 PM EST] <Laurna> The braid is my hair, curls are an added piece.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:46:00 PM EST] <DesertRose> jerusha, easily half the girls in my high school graduating class fried their hair in spiral perms to get those curls! :D
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:46:00 PM EST] <Jemler> DR - Janet Stephens?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:46:08 PM EST] <DesertRose> Probably, that sounds right, Jemler.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:46:11 PM EST] <The_Bee> Aren't you attached to them, Jerusha. Or aree they attached to you?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:46:31 PM EST] <jerusha> I love my straightening rod
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:46:40 PM EST] <Laurna> phone brb
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:46:55 PM EST] <DesertRose> Grass is always greener. I wish mine would either be straight or curly; this slightly-wavy nonsense is a bother.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:47:05 PM EST] <jerusha> Otherwise, my hair is the mane event
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:47:23 PM EST] <jerusha> I hear that, DR!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:47:32 PM EST] * DesertRose loads the trebuchet with a school of minnows and fires at jerusha.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:47:49 PM EST] * jerusha ducks
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:48:21 PM EST] * Jemler gets it
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:48:33 PM EST] <Evie> I discovered I still have lots of natural curl if my hair is shorter and layered, so I'm really enjoying having my curls back for the first time since childhood
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:48:46 PM EST] <jerusha> You cut your hair?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:49:06 PM EST] <Evie> It's around shoulder length at the moment, but it's grown out to that length.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:49:13 PM EST] <DesertRose> I like your do, Evie. And a lot of the time, the weight of long hair pulls the curl straighter.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:49:23 PM EST] <jerusha> That's a good length
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:49:36 PM EST] <Evie> It loses curl if I grow it much beyond that, although it will hold a curl if I roll it
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:49:42 PM EST] <The_Bee> I keep my hair short and no fuss.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:49:43 PM EST] <DesertRose> Mine is only a little wavy since it's to my waist or thereabouts; if it were short, it'd be wavier but still not actually curly.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:51:10 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL, Bee, mine is more fuss short than long. If it's short, I have to DO stuff with it; long, I can just braid it and call it good. :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:51:20 PM EST] <jerusha> So you had it shorter first, Evie?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:51:38 PM EST] <Evie> It was just a little longer than chin length when I first cut it
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:52:01 PM EST] <jerusha> Ah
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:52:35 PM EST] <jerusha> I can't wear my hair chin length - it just goes weird
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:52:51 PM EST] <Evie> I saw the pictures from DS's graduation and really didn't like how I looked in them, so I got my hair cut shortly after that, then lost about 15 pounds since then
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:53:05 PM EST] <jerusha> A total makeover!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:53:20 PM EST] <Evie> and hopefully counting, but i'm down a size and feel better
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:53:28 PM EST] <jerusha> All to the good
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:53:46 PM EST] <DesertRose> I can't really wear mine much shorter than shoulder length. It just looks weird and won't behave in any way I like.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:53:49 PM EST] <jerusha> It's how you feel about yourself that counts the most
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:53:52 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yup!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:54:09 PM EST] <bynw> i can do long or short
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:54:17 PM EST] <Evie> I have a desk job, so a lot of it is just being more intentional about walking more and watching my total calorie intake, though I'm not avoiding anything, just limiting certain things
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:54:40 PM EST] <jerusha> Restraint is better than abstinence
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:55:09 PM EST] <Evie> My idea of "restrait" is rather flexible this week, though. :-D
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:55:18 PM EST] <Evie> Restraint, even. LOL!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:55:21 PM EST] <jerusha> It is Thanksgiving!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:55:43 PM EST] <Evie> And my Mom cooked most of it, so i wave the white flag of surrender. :-D
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:56:11 PM EST] <jerusha> Sometimes, you have to give one for the team
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:56:21 PM EST] <Jemler> brb
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:56:59 PM EST] <The_Bee> My version of dieting is eating half a carton of ice cream while waiting for my supper to cook.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:57:02 PM EST] <Evie> Making the big sacrifice to save my family from those leftovers
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:57:10 PM EST] <jerusha> Yep
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:57:32 PM EST] <jerusha> So long as you save the other half for another day, Bee
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:58:33 PM EST] <KK> I moderated at the Thanksgiving buffet; managed not to gain anythin;g.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:58:46 PM EST] <DesertRose> Mom cooking is best cooking (unless your mother really can't cook).
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:59:12 PM EST] <Evie> My mom used to teach an international cooking class at the local junior college
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:59:16 PM EST] <jerusha> Moderation is good, provided you don't have to sacrifice
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:59:27 PM EST] <jerusha> Cool, Evie
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:59:36 PM EST] <Evie> Since that got to be easier than giving individual lessons to everyone who asked
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:59:41 PM EST] <DesertRose> Wow! I sort of figured she was good at cooking, but I didn't know she taught!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [7:59:54 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL, makes sense though.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:00:48 PM EST] <Evie> She started out teaching a few friends in her own kitchen, but then through word of mouth that got too popular, and then health code laws meant she couldn't do that without a license, so she managed a deal with the junior college to use their facilities
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:00:58 PM EST] <DesertRose> :D
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:01:08 PM EST] <jerusha> Excellent
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:01:10 PM EST] <Evie> as a community education course, not a credit course
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:01:24 PM EST] <Jemler> did you take her class, evie?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:01:34 PM EST] <DesertRose> I bet there were a lot of people who appreciated it, even if it didn't count towards any degree. :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:02:04 PM EST] <jerusha> Especially if you got to eat what you cooked in class!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:02:58 PM EST] <The_Bee> KK, I ate the other half yesterday. :(
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:03:01 PM EST] <Evie> Her original way of teaching it was that she would do a cooking demo and let people take notes of how that recipe was done, then they'd get an ingredients list, and for homework they would go home and cook it for their families.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:03:35 PM EST] <jerusha> That's my idea of homework!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:04:43 PM EST] <Evie> The husbands were usually wildly enthusiastic about their wives spending one evening a week at my Mom's house because they knew they'd get a really good meal later. :-D
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:04:48 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yummy homework. :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:05:27 PM EST] <DesertRose> And for once, "the dog [or the husband and/or the kids] ate my homework" won't make the teacher roll her eyes. :D
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:05:40 PM EST] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:05:46 PM EST] <KK> lol
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:05:51 PM EST] <jerusha> lol
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:06:15 PM EST] <Evie> Hopefully not ONLY the dog!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:06:26 PM EST] <jerusha> But a very happy dog!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:06:46 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hopefully not, especially since some staples of human cuisine are very bad for dogs (garlic and onions are a big no-no).
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:07:21 PM EST] <jerusha> I can sympathize - onions are a bit no-no for me
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:07:58 PM EST] <DesertRose> I can't eat raw onions any more (or at least not much; I can tolerate the little bit of onion that's in salsa).
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:08:03 PM EST] <DesertRose> Cooked ones are fine, though.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:08:19 PM EST] <Jemler> when we have chili, we always had a small dish of diced onions to put on top.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:08:40 PM EST] <jerusha> None for me, thanks, though a little bit in things like chicken noodle soup are OK
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:08:55 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yeah, I've seen people do that. Mom puts out a little bit of diced onion (and cilantro and lime wedges and sour cream) when she makes black bean soup.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:09:40 PM EST] <DesertRose> And sometimes, if she has it in the kitchen, a small dish of shredded Monterey Jack cheese.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:12:44 PM EST] <DesertRose> KK, how was jury duty?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:13:26 PM EST] <Jemler> it must have been a very trying experience. :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:13:55 PM EST] * DesertRose throws a manta ray at Jemler.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:14:14 PM EST] <Evie> Evie aims the mackerel launcher at Jemler and flings fish in his general direction
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:14:17 PM EST] <jerusha> I confess, I just got that
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:14:31 PM EST] <KK> We were dismissed before we even got there; case settled out of court. So I guess I wait for another call for a different jury.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:14:52 PM EST] <DesertRose> Ah, okay. Well, at least that means you didn't have to sit around the courthouse all day.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:15:05 PM EST] <KK> Not that day, anyway.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:15:45 PM EST] <DesertRose> The one time I've been summoned, I mostly sat around the courthouse with a book. I was in the pool for two trials (one criminal, one civil) but I wasn't selected as a juror for either.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:15:50 PM EST] <Jemler> i had jury duty in 96. i was excused because i knew the prosecuter.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:16:20 PM EST] <DesertRose> The poor Pod-Child has been summoned twice for county court and once for federal.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:16:27 PM EST] <DesertRose> Never actually had to serve yet, though.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:16:31 PM EST] <The_Bee> I've been ssummoned several times, but never eempaneled. Now I'm over 70, I don't need to serve.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:17:03 PM EST] <DesertRose> I wouldn't have minded serving, although I was slightly annoyed to be told that I needed to take the nail clippers off my key chain and put them in my car before I could ride the shuttle to the courthouse.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:17:15 PM EST] <The_Bee> We have a "one day or one trial" system here.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:17:21 PM EST] <DesertRose> What am I going to do to people with nail clippers? Am I the Mad Manicurist or something? :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:17:26 PM EST] <KK> I guess that would excuse me, too--though you'd think they know your age, and wouldn't bother calling you anyway. We shall see.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:18:01 PM EST] <The_Bee> Maybe different states have different laws.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:18:28 PM EST] <KK> I actually would like to serve. I think every citizen should serve at least once, to paraticipate in our justice system.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:18:47 PM EST] <The_Bee> I had to go online to find oout my age could be used as an excuse.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:19:15 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yup. My mom has been summoned but never empaneled. Apparently attorneys don't like civilian employees of the Department of Defense as jurors.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:19:19 PM EST] <KK> It may be there one is allowed to serve, but not required to.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:19:43 PM EST] <The_Bee> I was excused once because my brother worked in the penal system.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:19:45 PM EST] <KK> Yeah, that was my out all those years ago when I worked for LAPD.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:19:47 PM EST] <DesertRose> I'd like to serve too, but it seems to be rather luck of the draw whether you're even summoned.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:20:30 PM EST] <Jemler> the last time i was summoned, the dialysis clinic sent them a letter for medical reasons. i was excused.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:20:37 PM EST] <The_Bee> Ssomething to do with voter registration records, I think.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:20:39 PM EST] <Evie> I've served on a civil trial and a criminal one
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:20:42 PM EST] <KK> I'm sure that depeneds partly on the size of the potential jury pool.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:21:02 PM EST] <DesertRose> Probably.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:21:34 PM EST] <KK> At least I now know where to park and where to go.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:21:46 PM EST] <Evie> Two civil and one criminal, actually
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:22:05 PM EST] <KK> What kind of criminal?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:22:20 PM EST] <DesertRose> I'm not sure if Florida goes by voter registration or by driver's licenses. I know you can register to vote in the same office where you deal with your driver's license, and they'll update your voter registration if you change your address on your license.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:22:25 PM EST] <Evie> Manslaughter
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:22:35 PM EST] <KK> Oucch!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:22:40 PM EST] <jerusha> Ouch
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:22:48 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yikes!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:24:37 PM EST] <The_Bee> I don't have a driver's license. One time someone's cat was summoned to jury duty.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:24:54 PM EST] <DesertRose> Verdict: Meow. :)

[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:27:30 PM EST] <Derynifank> Hope everyone is well and you had a hood chat
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:27:44 PM EST] <Derynifank> Good
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:27:54 PM EST] <DesertRose> So far so good.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:28:14 PM EST] <DesertRose> And KK just stepped away but is still logged in, so we're still having a good chat. :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:28:14 PM EST] <bynw> yes it's been a good chat
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:28:14 PM EST] <The_Bee> IIRC, the cat's owner had trouble getting it excused because the list of valid excuses did not include not being human.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:28:29 PM EST] <DesertRose> Red tape at its finest, LOL, Bee.

[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:29:02 PM EST] <bynw> nope just got powered sugar dusting where i am
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:29:07 PM EST] <DesertRose> There was a cat who was mayor of a small settlement in Alaska.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:29:08 PM EST] <bynw> other places i hear got more
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:29:12 PM EST] <jerusha> It would have been interesting to show up with the cat
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:29:52 PM EST] <Derynifank> Cats always til
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:29:59 PM EST] <Derynifank> Rule
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:30:05 PM EST] <DesertRose> The settlement was actually too small to incorporate, so the cat was not an official mayor since the town wasn't officially a town.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:30:26 PM EST] <The_Bee> I think the owner tried "does not speak English."
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:30:48 PM EST] <Evie> I got excused one year because I was 8 months pregnant, so there was the chance I might go into labor while on duty
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:30:54 PM EST] <bynw> the owner can show up with the cat and be the official translator
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:31:07 PM EST] <KK> I'm back.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:31:18 PM EST] <bynw> wb :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:31:22 PM EST] <jerusha> I can see that as an excusal, Evie
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:31:31 PM EST] <Derynifank> Did the owner speak fluent cat?
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:31:32 PM EST] <The_Bee> I might have tried "is 12 years old."
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:31:38 PM EST] <DesertRose> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stubbs_(cat)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:32:47 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yeah, you'd think someone would need to be at least 18 years old to serve on a jury, and that's getting well into venerable as cat ages go. :)

[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:35:21 PM EST] <DesertRose> Problems one encounters when looking up a piece of Bach's music by catalog number: The name of the composition may be in German. :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:35:39 PM EST] <bynw> off to go get some food ...
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:35:53 PM EST] <Derynifank> Enjoy
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:36:18 PM EST] <jerusha> I should go as well. Have a good week, everyone!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:36:30 PM EST] <DesertRose> My Pandora station just started playing one of my favorites, the title in English of which is "Sleepers Awake," but Pandora is identifying it in German and by BWV number, so I googled the BWV number, trying to remember the English title. It took me a minute. :D
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:36:34 PM EST] <DesertRose> G'night, jerusha!
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:36:50 PM EST] <Derynifank> Nite Jerusha

[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:36:53 PM EST] <bynw> night jerusha, hope your package comes soon
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:37:07 PM EST] <jerusha> I'll let you know when it arrives
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:37:33 PM EST] <Laurna> sorry that took so long
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:37:37 PM EST] <The_Bee> bye jerusha
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:37:43 PM EST] <Laurna> Good night Jerusha
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:37:47 PM EST] <DesertRose> We're mostly still here, Laurna. :)
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:38:08 PM EST] <KK> It's about time for me to say goodnight, too. Should see you all again next week, at our earlier time.
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:38:28 PM EST] <Derynifank> Nite KK
[Sunday, November 25, 2018] [8:38:35 PM EST] <Laurna> Good Night KK have a great week

"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.)
