KK Chat -- 2 December 2018 Part 2
« on: December 02, 2018, 06:01:22 PM »
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:41:24 PM EST] <Evie> And the small ale and small beer had even less of an alcohol content. Basically just enough to kill off the bacteria in the water
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:41:38 PM EST] <Evie> Between that and boiling it during the brewing process
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:41:44 PM EST] <DesertRose> Probably not even 3.2, which is weak beer by modern standards. :)
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:41:47 PM EST] <Shiral> Between itchy clothes, no baths, bad plumbing and the plague...who WOULDN'T drink???
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:42:09 PM EST] <Laurna> They say the Renaissance started because of Hot tea and Coffee.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:42:19 PM EST] <DesertRose> Caffeine! :D
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:42:24 PM EST] <Shiral> People were finally in a better mood!
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:42:35 PM EST] <Laurna> Better for the mind than small beer
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:42:35 PM EST] <Evie> Well, to be fair, unless you wore rough woolens next to your skin, it might not be that itchy. Linen can turn quite soft on repeated washings.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:43:04 PM EST] <Evie> and they cleaned themselves daily, they just didn't have full immersion baths daily.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:43:10 PM EST] <KK> brb
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:43:18 PM EST] <DesertRose> There's a funny cartoon that some university student drew of a made-up Greco-Roman god of last-minute studying and general fudging; his attending nymphs are Caffeina and Thesaurae.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:43:18 PM EST] <The_Bee> fleas living in your woolens...
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:43:34 PM EST] <Shiral> Of course, if you were Thomas Moore, you wore a hair shirt under your clothes, which would be enough to drive ANYBODY crazy
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:43:45 PM EST] <DesertRose> The god's name is BS-icus, to keep it PG-13. :)
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:44:02 PM EST] <Evie> Well, yeah, hair shirts were definitely not designed for comfort
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:44:15 PM EST] <DesertRose> They weren't supposed to be. It was supposed to be a penance.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:44:28 PM EST] <Shiral> And there were people in that age who took penitence to extreme lengths
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:44:59 PM EST] <DesertRose> But speaking as someone who has acted an entire fool upon finding a tangled bit of her own shed hair in her clothes (it felt like a spider or bug), I cannot imagine wearing an entire shirt made of human hair.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:45:22 PM EST] <DesertRose> My hooded cape is enough. :P
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:45:26 PM EST] <Laurna> yuck
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:45:34 PM EST] <Evie> Label on my cider says it's Naturally Gluten-Free. Hm. You don't say? *eyeroll*
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:45:50 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL, well, most beer isn't, but there really isn't a reason there'd be gluten in cider. :P
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:46:04 PM EST] <Evie> Exactly!
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:46:18 PM EST] <Shiral> Haha, got a candid shot of Dmitri's rear hanging out of the new bed with his front half inside
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:46:27 PM EST] <DesertRose> File under N, for No [Kidding], Sherlock.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:46:28 PM EST] <Evie> Unless maybe one makes a habit of sticking wheat into one's apples before mashing and fermenting them!
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:46:29 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL, Shiral!
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:46:58 PM EST] <Shiral> I sprinkled some 'nip in there to arouse his interest. Appears to have worked.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:47:02 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:47:11 PM EST] <bynwII> i love those gluten-free labels on things that dont contain wheat products like meat
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:47:27 PM EST] <Shiral> I know. Aren't we all reassured to know these things?
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:47:36 PM EST] <KK> I'm back. I think they used horsehair for shirts. Much scratchier than human hair would be, or just about any other hair.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:47:37 PM EST] <DesertRose> Carys loves catnip, but she mostly ignored the cat bed I bought right before I adopted her, even though it had a little pocket on the underside full of catnip. She slept in it about twice.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:47:45 PM EST] <The_Bee> or "caffeine-free" ginger ale.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:47:54 PM EST] <KK> Shiral, pls post pic of Dmitri and his new bed!
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:48:03 PM EST] <Shiral> I shall when possible, KK
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:48:03 PM EST] <Evie> Although the signage I took a photo of this weekend was over a display of Barbies that (hopefully erroneously!) proudly proclaimed their sale price as $175!
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:48:12 PM EST] <DesertRose> My mom and I cleaned up the bed and I donated it to the humane society. Let some shelter kitty get some use out of it. :)
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:48:16 PM EST] <Evie> (For dolls that usually retail closer to $8.)
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:48:22 PM EST] <DesertRose> Wow.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:48:32 PM EST] <Shiral> He immediately pulled out and gave me an indignant look after he heard the camera click
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:01 PM EST] <Evie> My guess is that they ran out of the $175 item and restocked the shelf with Barbies, but forgot to take down the sign
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:05 PM EST] <KK> I can imagine the indignant look.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:13 PM EST] Join MerchantDeryni (MerchantDer@OWIRCN-9b6751fa.dsl.bell.ca) has joined this channel.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:20 PM EST] <bynwII> hi MerchantDeryni
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:20 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi MD
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:21 PM EST] <DesertRose> Dmitri is a gentlecat of great dignity. :D
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:23 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi MerchantDeryni
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:25 PM EST] <KK> Hi, MD.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:27 PM EST] <Laurna> Hello MD
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:31 PM EST] <Shiral> I bought Tati a little bed when she was still a new addition. She outgrew it. Which doesn't stop Dmitri from trying to sit in it, too.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:32 PM EST] <Evie> Hi MD
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:35 PM EST] <Jemler> hi md
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:36 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:36 PM EST] <Shiral> Hi MD
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:56 PM EST] <MerchantDeryni> Hello all: Happy December
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:49:57 PM EST] <Shiral> Dmitri would like you to think that, DR. He can also be pretty goofy
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:50:08 PM EST] <DesertRose> Carys would probably still fit in the now-donated cat bed, because it was fairly large, but she'd rather sleep on me.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:50:11 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:50:46 PM EST] <DesertRose> Or in my desk chair, two seconds after I stand up. :P
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:51:03 PM EST] <DesertRose> He contains multitudes, Shiral. :)
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:51:37 PM EST] <DesertRose> I'm mostly not a big fan of Whitman, but I do like that line.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:51:49 PM EST] <Shiral> Dmitri will sit in my lap when I'm in my comfy TV chair. Then if I get up for any reason, he's always curled up there when I come back. The only way to get him to move is to just lower myself--he moves fast when he realizes I mean it.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:51:59 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:52:24 PM EST] <The_Bee> I've done that with Melantha.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:52:42 PM EST] <Evie> I do the same thing, only Luke will occasionally have to feel my weight start to descend on his furry body before he'll squirm out from under my descending form.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:52:50 PM EST] <Shiral> Sorry all, must go. Family will be arriving soon for games and pizza.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:52:57 PM EST] <Evie> Sounds fun
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:53:16 PM EST] * Shiral waves farewell, steps onto her portal and disappears in a cloud of blue steam and catnip
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:53:18 PM EST] <KK> Have a greata evening, Shiral.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:53:23 PM EST] <Laurna> good night Shiral
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:53:28 PM EST] <Jemler> nite shiral
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:53:29 PM EST] <Shiral> BYE!Thanks all, until next week
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:54:02 PM EST] <Laurna> pizza would be good
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:54:03 PM EST] <The_Bee> byeShiral
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:54:05 PM EST] <bynwII> night Shiral
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:54:34 PM EST] <Evie> I'll need to go soon also and try to get some housework done, since weekends are my few days I have both time and energy at the same time to do it, and I usually spend at least one weekend day with my folks, so my house is a right mess
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:55:04 PM EST] <DesertRose> G'night, Shiral!
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:55:31 PM EST] <bynwII> night to you as well Evie
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:55:46 PM EST] <DesertRose> I don't do the slow-sit because sometimes (unpredictably) my knees will nope out, and I don't want to fall, full stop, but I particularly don't want to fall on Carys.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:55:46 PM EST] <Laurna> I will try to clean up my house next week before I decorate for christmas
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:55:47 PM EST] <Evie> In theory I have a couch under this folded laundry
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:56:10 PM EST] <Laurna> lol hah the laudny folded is good
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:56:37 PM EST] <KK> I think it's time for me to boogie, too. See you all next week. And happy Christmas prepping to all!
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:56:49 PM EST] <Evie> Laundry folded is good. But it's also been sitting there since last weekend, so I will need to rewash what's on top because I'm certain it's covered with cat hair by now.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:56:50 PM EST] <Laurna> Good night Evie
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:56:54 PM EST] <Laurna> Good night KK
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:56:57 PM EST] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:57:00 PM EST] <bynwII> have a good night kk
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:57:07 PM EST] <Evie> Goodnight, KK!
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:57:10 PM EST] <The_Bee> Nighters, KK and Evie
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:57:14 PM EST] <KK> Nighters, all.
[Sunday, December 2, 2018] [6:57:17 PM EST] 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.)
