[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:05:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hi KK
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:05:26 PM EST] Nick web87 is now known as KK.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:05:31 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hi KK
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:05:32 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hiya KK
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:05:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Hello KK
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:05:40 PM EST] <KK> Hello, all.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:05:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> How was your week?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:06:02 PM EST] <The_Bee> I once read a book called When Knighthood was in Flower. It may have been about Eleanor. Hi KK!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:06:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Someday someone else will log in as "Web##" and we're all going to assume it's KK when it's not. 😉
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:06:27 PM EST] <chris> hi KK
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:06:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> LOL
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:06:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hello all
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:06:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Well, the reason I assumed it was KK was the time.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:06:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:06:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:06:52 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi KK
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:06:56 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi shiral
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:06:56 PM EST] <KK> Week was fine until yesterday, when I learned that a very close friend had passed away from lung cancer.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:07:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah, because there's no other plausible reason why someone else might log in here at this time. 😉
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:07:10 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Oh dear, I'm sorry
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:07:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Oh dear, sorry to hear that, KK!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:07:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Oh no.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:07:27 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Very sorry.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:07:32 PM EST] <The_Bee> Oh No! ;(
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:07:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> So sorry to hear that. : (
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:07:41 PM EST] <chris> sorry to hear that KK
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:07:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Sorry to hear of your loss KK
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:07:52 PM EST] <KK> Yeah, he was also one o Scott's closest friends. Very sad.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:08:31 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I hope the two of them are enjoying a pint together now
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:08:32 PM EST] <The_Bee> You'd known him for a long time?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:08:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Amen, absolutely.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:09:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> If he was a fellow Macallan fan, Scott's poured him a dram already, I'd wager.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:09:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Whatever they'd enjoy the most!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:09:22 PM EST] <KK> On the brighter side, Cameron found a Forester for me, right there in Norma, where he lives, and we completed the sale over the phone and via emails.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:09:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> And being at the Heavenly Pub, they can get the Angel's Share.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:09:50 PM EST] <The_Bee> Forester?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:09:53 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Excellent about the car, KK
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:09:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Um...what is a Forester, aside from a dude who manages forests? 😉
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:10:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> A Subaru type
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:10:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Somewhat different than Kelson would describe it, probably
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:10:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Four seats, hatchback.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:10:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Ah, OK. I was pretty sure Cameron wasn't helping you purchase someone to tend to your trees. 😉
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:10:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> On your vast, forested estate
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:10:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> "Now, your job will be preventing anyone from poaching Katherine's deer...."
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:11:13 PM EST] <The_Bee> Cameron lives with Norma? Does Anna know?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:11:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> "In addition to your wages, you will be allowed a rabbit for your pot once per fortnight."
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:11:31 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Sarah says hello. She's busy getting supper for herself and the little ones, but she said to say hi.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:11:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> They live in Norman, OK, IIRC.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:11:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Speaking of woodland intrigue... justice for Brion! 😢 just got to the beginning of the beginning.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:12:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yay, you're finally starting the Deryni series!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:12:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yes, poor Brion. We just get enough of him to become attatched!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:12:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I'll just stand here in my corner with my pompoms, cheering you on. 😄
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:12:53 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Do we like filk and folk music here? All this talk of real women who lead from the front in war and such reminded me of an early Heather Dale song.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:12:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Well, KK fixed that by writing it out of internal chronology. We get to see a good bit of him in the Childe Morgan trilogy.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:13:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> https://youtu.be/Kqie_rjYbak
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:13:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I won't speak for everyone, but I do.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:13:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I love filksongs. As long as whoever is singing them can actually carry a tune, at least.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:13:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Oh, Heather Dale can do more than that!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:13:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Great for transportation, does not maintain forests for the king
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:14:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I adore her "As I Am." (Basically Arthur's proposal to Guinevere. It's gorgeous. I'd give my left arm to sing half as well as Heather Dale.)
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:14:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> But he can safely travel THROUGH the woods in his Forester
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:14:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> [Heather Dale] Yes, very pretty voice
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:15:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> She's a good lyricist too. If I had a band of my own, my first order of business would be to do a male cover of Crashing Down. Mordred made some good points there.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:15:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I'll settle for singing a quarter as well, but keeping both arms.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:15:41 PM EST] Join web87 (47e9bbef@CCN-46100A5C.hsd1.ct.comcast.net) has joined this channel.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:15:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I'll stay away from losing an arm too.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:15:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> KK, did we lose you?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:16:17 PM EST] <web87> no, it's the bee. i lost my chat page.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:16:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Oops
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:16:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Rehi, Bee
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:16:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> To err is human; to REALLY screw up requires a computer.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:16:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> You can do the /nick [name] command
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:17:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Without the square brackets or the words in front of the command
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:17:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> The slash has to be the first character in the line.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:17:08 PM EST] <web87> I clicked on the pic link, and the chat page was gone.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:17:16 PM EST] Nick web87 is now known as Bee.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:17:23 PM EST] <KK> He will be driving it up to Staunton in about 10 days, where he'll exchange it for my present Outback. It'd about a 8/10 size Outback, which will be perfect for me. The current Outback is just that much bigger than the previous Outback; have always been uncertain of the location of the front corners.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:17:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> It wasn't in another tab of your browser?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:17:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Sweet! Well done, Cameron, on taking care of your mom!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:17:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> The great car exchange of 2024
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:18:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Dmitri sends his purrs, KK
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:19:25 PM EST] <Bee> Is the new Forester easier to get in and out of?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:19:25 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> BRB, tea glass has gone empty on me.

[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:19:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> wb Tom
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:19:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I know the feeling about the corners. "Doors and corners, [KK]. That's where they get you." -James S.A. Corey
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:19:43 PM EST] <Bee> Rehi Tom 59
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:19:45 PM EST] <tom59> Hi
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:19:52 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hi Tom59
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:20:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> It's nice when a car is reliable and maneuverable, but too many blindspots are simply too much sometimes.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:20:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Not the empty tea glass! Horrors!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:20:25 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Hi Tom
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:20:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Welcome back, Tom
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:20:37 PM EST] <KK> Yep. He's a first rate car guru. Found the present Outback for me in Dallas, about 1 1/2 years ago. In that case, he took the previous Outback back to Norman and sold it for me, to a neighbor.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:21:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Genuinely impressive car trading!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:21:32 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hi Tom!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:21:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> He learned that at Scott's knee, didn't he?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:21:52 PM EST] <KK> New new beast is a 2021. Has all kinds of new bells and whistles.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:21:52 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> IIRC, Scott liked his cars.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:22:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> DD's car's dashboard looks like it ought to control a space ship.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:23:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Which one? So many good options
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:23:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I'm like 'Do they make a model of this car for people born in the 1900s?' 😄
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:23:13 PM EST] <Bee> Maybe it does!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:23:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hope she doesn't accidentally end up in warp drive, Evie
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:24:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Ditto basically every family car but mine and my old one that lives at my parents' house to be the car to haul stuff we don't want to mess up the newer nicer cars hauling (hatchback, can throw the seats flat, and it's an '05 with upwards of 200,000 miles on it).
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:24:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> (Technically she was also born in the 1900s, she's just too young to remember them!)
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:24:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Mine has a fair number of bells and whistles, and likely my next car will be my mom's current car, which is pretty space-age.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:25:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Same here. I wish I could remember them, sometimes.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:25:18 PM EST] <Bee> I never got my driver's license. I flunked driver ed.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:25:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hoping to keep my Old Lady car going awhile longer. 2024 looks like a leanish year
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:26:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Hi Everyone! Understand about the Outback, KK. I found that if I elevate the seat high enough, I can see to drive.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:26:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi Jerusha. Are you still in Florid?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:26:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:26:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> My son just turned 29 last weekend. He might have vague memories of the tail end of the 1900s, but I'm not sure.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:26:16 PM EST] <KK> He did, indeed. When I received the news of Tim's passing, immediately pictured him and Scott siting in front of the fire in our old paneled library, with dogs sprawled at their feet, glasses of scotch in hand, both of them wearing black tie. I'm sure they've met up by now, and are having a splendid reuno
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:26:30 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Yep. Spent the afternoon at the Brevard Renaissance Faire
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:26:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Oh, fun!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:26:46 PM EST] <KK> reunion.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:26:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> That's a great mental image.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:26:50 PM EST] <chris> hi jerusha
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:26:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hi Jerusha.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:27:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Busily catching up, I'm sure! Still with beloved, departed dogs at their sides. Black ties optional
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:27:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> The two gentleman in their gentleman's clothes and library with glasses of a good gentleman's beverage.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:27:30 PM EST] <Bee> Do you think Oswald is with Scott?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:27:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> There wasn't as much mud this weekend, and Kansas City won. What more could you want?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:27:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> How was the fair?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:27:45 PM EST] <Bee> or did i recall the name wrong?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:28:07 PM EST] <KK> Yep, two of the three hounds are on their side of the Rainbow Bridge.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:28:10 PM EST] <chris> the ravens winning
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:28:10 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> It is very well done, DR. The joust was scripted, but very good
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:28:16 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Dogs at feet and cats purring in laps.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:28:17 PM EST] <KK> Lots of cats, too.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:28:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Oh, definitely. Including the Marmalade Bear, I'm sure
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:28:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Hope you didn't place any bets.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:29:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I never bet, I'd rather shop than lose money
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:29:27 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Likewise 😆
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:29:44 PM EST] <Bee> Chris, are you roooting for anyone now in footbal?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:29:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> At least with shopping, you receive something in hand for spending your money.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:29:47 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> If it's going to leave your pocket anyway, might as well be guaranteed to get something in exchange for it? 😄
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:30:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Ha, same mind in two bodies, Evie!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:30:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Since I can't win at any sort of gambling, shopping is a much better bet
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:30:25 PM EST] <chris> lions
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:30:27 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I once saw a stained glass pentangle for sale at a ren faire. Like the one described in Sr Gawain and The Green Kniight. I regret not buying that.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:30:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I was hoping the ravens would win because KC looks like it's trying tp become the Patriots. I lose interest when the same team wins all the time
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:30:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I did buy the souviner t-shirt. "Live, Laugh, Mud" very appropriate
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:30:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> My evil twin Martha REALLy likes to shop
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:30:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Our brain is going to get stretched, having to extend across the state border like that, DR.

[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:40:18 PM EST] <chris> Hi HH
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:40:19 PM EST] <Bee> Ok as far as I know
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:40:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> LOL, Evie, I've been in a friend's Facebook comments talking Southern figures of speech.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:40:43 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I'm good, thanks! 2 nd knee surgery scheduled for 3/13, tentatively. Otherwise OK.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:40:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Well, I swan! (OK, that one is well before my generation! 😄 )
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:41:04 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Hi, Chris
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:41:11 PM EST] <chris> and Bee yes the good guys are winning
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:41:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> First knee surgery went OK, HM?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:41:47 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Meant as a compliment, of course. It's good to be on the same side as a master of disguise. I'll cherish this sliver of paper.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:41:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Some of the ones that have shown up aren't appropriate for chat, but some of the ones that are have been hilarious. I contributed "don't know [someone] from Adam's house cat" and "as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs" along with one off-color one.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:42:02 PM EST] <Bee> I'm for the Lions. They've been waiting long enough.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:42:10 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Yes, thanks Jerusha. It's now my "good" knee.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:42:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> @KK how is your back doing?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:42:24 PM EST] <chris> i'm cheering the Lions too
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:42:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Oh dear, Bynw, We're on the same side!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:42:47 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Go, Lions!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:43:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Of course you're cheering the Lions! Kelson would want a word with you otherwise.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:43:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Trying to type around Dmitri doesn't work. Fortunately he knows "Dmitri MOVE!"
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:43:30 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I'm afraid to cheer for the Lions. Every time I cheer for a team they lose/
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:43:31 PM EST] <HoundMistress> That's right, he would!!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:43:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I'm waiting for the platter of Lion Burgers
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:43:45 PM EST] <chris> every now and again jerusha we cheer on the same team
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:44:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I'm deep in 49er Country....fortunately I'm not into Football.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:44:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> "Luke, MOVE!" was usually Luke's cue to crouch down lower as he was determinedly lying across both of my wrists while I tried to type.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:44:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Now that the Ravens are out, I don't know who to root for.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:44:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Dmitri also knows "Move I mean it NOW!"
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:44:27 PM EST] <Bee> Have you ever eaten a lion burger?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:44:36 PM EST] <KK> Back is getting better. Unoperated knee is getting worse. I think I'm aiming at September to get it done. Hound Mistress, when did you have yours done?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:44:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Oh, I'm certain Luke knew what that meant, he just didn't DO it! 😄
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:44:44 PM EST] <HoundMistress> IBLK is who knows where & Bubbie is chillin' on my walker. Don't know what she will do when I don't need it any more. Oh, here's IBLK>
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:44:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Is such a burger even legal?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:45:11 PM EST] <HoundMistress> KK, I had my right one done on 11/01
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:45:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> The second phrase always works, while the first one doesn't in Dmitri's case.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:45:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> It was in Balance of Power
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:45:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I'll keep praying for your comfort, KK.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:45:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> It's a reference to my modern-day Deryni story, Bee. There was a burger joint called Lion Burger with a heraldic lion on the logo.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:46:16 PM EST] <KK> Ah. Well I have to fly twice between now and September, so I need to put mine off. First knee ws 9/11
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:46:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> The characters took the Queen there on their way to somewhere else, because she spotted the sign and joked that since they were using her lion, she should have one of their burgers.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:46:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I had left over meatloaf for lunch, but now I want a Lion Burger darn you!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:47:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> With cheese, of course
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:47:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Has anyone ever tried gator?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:47:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Not so far
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:47:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Fortunately I don't have any surgeries planned, but anything short of an emergency would need to wait until after September too, since that's when DS is planning to get married.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:47:47 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I hear it tastes like chicken but have never tried it myself
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:48:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I think I've had it in something, Marc, but IIRC I wasn't a fan.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:48:07 PM EST] <chris> no but there is a place in town that serves it
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:48:15 PM EST] <Bee> Everything tastes like chicken.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:48:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> September is a good month
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:48:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> It really does taste like chicken, but sort of "off"
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:48:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> like someone is lying to you about being a chicken.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:48:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> If I'm remembering correctly, it tastes somewhere between chicken and fish, and since I loathe fish of any sort, that's not a way for any other meat to win me over.

[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:48:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Perhaps the flavor is more like dinosaur
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:48:53 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Perhaps!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:49:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Eww
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:49:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Since chickens are descendents of the dinos
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:49:12 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Whew! Catching up. Was away a minute
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:49:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> That could be, but having tasted so little dinosaur in my life, it's hard to compare
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:49:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> A number of restaurants here serve it, but the fishy notion turns me off.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:49:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I dislike fish and seafood.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:49:44 PM EST] <Bee> I had an uncle who would try any food. Once.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:49:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Well....honestly I've never known ANYBODY who knows what dinosaur tastes like! 😉
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:49:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> DH says that ever since he started keeping chickens, he has lost all respect for T-Rex's intelligence.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:49:59 PM EST] <chris> i'm with you on that DR
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:50:08 PM EST] <KK> Heh. Sometimes the yearning is not matched by the achieving. I had a hankering for a pizza on Friday, on my way home from physio. In addition to the price having gone way up since I last bought a pizza--nearly $15--it wasn't even that good.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:50:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Just like all mushrooms are edible ...once
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:50:22 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Bee, I had an uncle who would do that, too.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:50:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Bad pizza is a big disappointment
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:50:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Maybe if we simply ate more reptiles we would know what dinos tasted like, but I could never eat a turtle if I had a choice. They're too cool.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:51:00 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Take out food is getting less and less appealing
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:51:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> And bad mushrooms....are too risky
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:51:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> September is a good month as long as you don't live where hurricanes visit. When DD2 was engaged the first time she planned and outdoor wedding in Sept. I was sure we would get a hurricane That one didn't work out and when she married her husband, it was a gorgeous October day
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:51:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I solve that by not eating mushrooms. It's actually part of the same reason I don't eat fish/seafood; I dislike the texture.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:51:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I'm not a mushroom fan, though I do like mushroom gravy, so go figure
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:52:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I stick to the least adventurous forms of mushrooms
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:52:20 PM EST] <KK> Mushrooms: ym
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:52:26 PM EST] <KK> yum
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:52:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Autumn is the most beautiiful time of year, imo. But perhaps that's regional
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:52:35 PM EST] <Bee> I trust supermarket to sell only edible mushrooms. Am I wrong?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:52:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> mushrooms sauteed in brandy on top of a burger
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:52:43 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I love mushrooms simmered in wine and butter
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:52:52 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I love them with steak
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:52:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I don't like fish or seafood due to not liking the taste. Something about any aquatic life form tastes like licking the algae off an aquarium to me.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:53:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> And with chicken.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:53:07 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Me, too, Shiral
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:53:11 PM EST] <KK> Where are you, Marc?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:53:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I very much l ike nice FRESH fish
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:53:39 PM EST] <Bee> wen I'm shopping a passa place thatspecializing in mushrooms. Some day I'll stop there.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:53:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> If I'm going to saute something in brandy or wine and butter, it'll be something I like. Onions and peppers for a topping for something.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:53:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Licking algae off on an aquarium would put me off
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:53:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> there's more protein in land-based meat anyway. How do we think the men of KK's worlds became so strong? I doubt fish were involved.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:53:51 PM EST] <HoundMistress> KK, did you say if your back feels better?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:54:30 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I don't like the smell or taste of fish/seafood either, but I also dislike the texture. (People tell me that fresh fish/seafood isn't supposed to have a smell. It does, to me, and I don't like it.)
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:54:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I'll go with that theory, though the fishermen in Coroth Bay might beg to differ. 😉
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:54:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Well, Alaric does live in a coastal city. I'll bet some fish finds it's way onto his ducal table
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:54:45 PM EST] <Bee> I like mushrooms stuffed with sausage.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:54:46 PM EST] <KK> Sort of like kissing a smoker, being akin to licking an ashtray. Yuck!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:54:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Bee, yes!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:55:18 PM EST] <KK> Back is improving.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:55:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I'm back in Virginia, KK! On the road trip down, I listened to the little playlist I made based on the Templar series, and it felt like I had a great purpose for coming back, all of a sudden.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:55:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I don't much care for the smell of browning ground beef either, but once it's browned and seasoned for tacos or in spaghetti sauce or whatever, it tastes good so I'll forgive it the less appetizing interim stage smell.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:55:26 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Good to hear, KK
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:55:44 PM EST] <chris> i like cows, chickens, and piggy wiggies
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:55:57 PM EST] <KK> Marc, where in Virginia?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:56:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> piggy wiggies?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:56:24 PM EST] <Bee> with a ring on the end of their nose/
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:56:26 PM EST] <chris> pigs
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:56:30 PM EST] <Bee> ?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:56:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Picturing bynw with socks off, counting his piggy wiggies now
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:56:44 PM EST] <chris> pork chops pork loin bacon
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:56:53 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Ahh
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:56:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Lynchburg. I'm hoping to find a job within an hour of the city. Applying wherever I can. I still have a good feeling about the one I mentioned a month ago, it's just that the organization moves at a snail's pace. Can't be helped.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:57:09 PM EST] <Bee> RIBS.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:57:11 PM EST] <KK> Bee, good pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling...?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:57:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I would adjust for inflation
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:57:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> All of this food talk ... I need to open my recipe book.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:57:53 PM EST] <Bee> "YOUR RING? sAID THE PIGGY,' i WILL'
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:58:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Food can take over in this chat room...
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:58:18 PM EST] <chris> we have recipes on the forum
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:58:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> What job field were you applying for again, Marc? Not that I know of any openings in or near Lynchburg
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:58:21 PM EST] <tom59> I see that
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:58:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> But I've never met a barbecued pork rib that I couldn't love
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:58:31 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Food and cats
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:58:38 PM EST] <KK> Tee-hee, Bee! So they took it away and were married that day by the turkey who lives on the hil...
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:59:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Museums, think tanks, education, research, writing, if possible: archaeology. In that order, generally. History is my true love.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:59:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Ooh. How close are you to Colonial Williamsburg? That's on my bucket list to go visit.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:59:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Good luck! Hope futune smiles on you
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [7:59:57 PM EST] <KK> My brother-in-law is doing his PhD remotely there, from Los Angeles.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:00:08 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Good luck with the job hunting!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:00:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Cool!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:00:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> That's very remote. 😄
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:00:22 PM EST] <Bee> VERY GOOD LUCK
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:01:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I've been on a field trip or two to Williamsburg. You simply must go see it.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:01:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Thank you, all 🙂
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:01:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> While I prefer medieval to early Renaissance English history, that does limit the amount of relevant sites I can visit on this side of The Pond.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:02:11 PM EST] <KK> Absolutely. I went there with some CA friends, years ago, and we did a pavane in the ballroom of the governor's mansion. Great fun!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:02:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Have you been to the cloister in new york? I'm not sure of the dating of the building, but it's about as medieval as new york can get.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:02:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I've been to the Cloisters. Loved it!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:02:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> No, though I've had friends who have been and brought back souvenirs
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:02:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> The tapestries... Kelson needs one of those.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:02:51 PM EST] <KK> Also loved it, though I don't like NYC.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:02:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Me neither
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:03:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I have a pillow with a cover based on the Unicorn Tapestries in my livingroom
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:03:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> From the gift shop, presumably. Not saying they were burglars. 😉
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:03:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Oh definitely, from the gift shop.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:03:20 PM EST] <Bee> Were tapestries intended to keep out the chill?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:03:28 PM EST] * CambersGhost [discord] <shiral_> bats eyelashes..
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:03:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Partly that, partly for decoration
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:03:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I am mercenary enough that I can be paid to live in New York, but it seems a scarier prospect than living in Comyn's pagan fortress.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:03:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Both for insulation and decoration
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:03:56 PM EST] <KK> Ye, in addition to being decorative, and places for spies to listen in on conversations.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:04:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Marc, if you should find yourself with time on your hands in Richmond, check out Agecroft Hall. It's a 13th C manor house brought over in pieces by a wealthy family and reconstructed on the bank of the James River (not exactly as it was in York because certain elements of the house didn't travel super well).
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:04:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Not all of them were particularly elaborate
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:04:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> It's not that a new, well constructed castle is drafty so much as it is that stone tends to be a cold material in winter, so you want to insulate your walls to keep warmth in.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:04:27 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> The tapestry I remember from the cloister depicted a highly metaphorical hunting of a unicorn. Or was it a white stag?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:04:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> THe tapestries, I mean, not Agecroft Hall
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:04:36 PM EST] <Bee> whose spies? Yours, or the enemies'?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:04:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> It was a Unicorn
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:04:56 PM EST] <KK> Both, Bee.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:04:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> It's a pretty famous series
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:05:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I need to write that name down before I forget it again, DR. I want to see that place
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:05:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> The front page says 16th C, but parts of the house are older. https://www.agecrofthall.org/
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:06:16 PM EST] * Bee is trying to imagine our spies and the enemy's spies comparing notes.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:06:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> It's gorgeous, and the gardens are lovely, too.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:06:49 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Beautiful!!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:06:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I'm floored that the stained glass made it across the Water intact. Someone packed that stuff the **right** way.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:07:05 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I love historic buildings
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:07:20 PM EST] <KK> I have a bookend covered in a piece of unicorn crewel embroidery that I did years ago. I also did two of the gowns from the tapestry, for SCA. One was my coronation gown.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:07:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I wouldn't mind living in a house like that one bit
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:07:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Meanwhile here I sit wondering if I can build that in Sims 4. 😉
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:07:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I'd love it, at least if I had enough income for the upkeep
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:08:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> And taxes
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:08:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> and insurance
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:08:28 PM EST] <Bee> enough money to hire a full-time cleaning staff
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:08:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yikes, taxes, yes. 2023 was not a happy tax year for me.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:08:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> and Skilled handymen
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:08:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Taxes? Right, now I know who to root for in Football, without my Ravens: go Buccaneers!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:08:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Hi Laurna

[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:09:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> hello
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:09:18 PM EST] <Bee> The Lions have waited longest.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:09:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Hello, I have been lurking trying to catch up on all the commnets
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:09:20 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Hi, Laurna
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:09:20 PM EST] <chris> lions 24 49ers 7 ...... 7 seconds left in the first half
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:09:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Go Lions
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:09:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> The 49ers are getting shellacked....
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:09:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Oh dear, I thought the 49ers would do better
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:09:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> *Kelson smiles*
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:09:50 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Looking like Kelson would like the outcome of the game.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:09:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> LEt's hope the Lions can keep it up through the 2nd half
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:10:19 PM EST] <KK> 49ers have still got the second half to catch up.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:10:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> There is lots of time
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:10:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I will give them a little cheering to see if they and improve.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:10:42 PM EST] <HoundMistress> True but that's a lot of catching up
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:10:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> THeir coach better give them a big big peptalk, then!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:10:55 PM EST] <chris> go Lions! and it's halftime
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:11:06 PM EST] Quit tom59 (474841e9@CCN-250A0FC4.res.spectrum.com) has left this server (Ping timeout: 180 seconds).
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:11:10 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I will give them a little cheering to see if they can improve.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:11:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Morgan will root for the Lions, since they're not up against a team called the Gryphons
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:12:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> And of course Duncan is for the Lions too, being a McLain, though he is glad these Lions aren't sleeping on the job.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:12:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Need a team called the Grypons Oh wait Harry Potter is team captain. But that would be routing for the wrong universe for usins here.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:13:10 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I think Duncan's Lions were only pretending to be sleeping and would jump out at you suddenly at any time
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:13:12 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Yep, whole different universe
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:13:30 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I'm going to be very conflicted reading about this Alaric Morgan guy, I can already tell from chapter 1. Not his fault, but because I named a bad guy in something I'm writing "Al'aric" before knowing of him. 😕 he must be a powerful guy, if Kelson was told to call on him
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:13:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Duncan would give them a good prod if he needed them!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:13:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Beware of Sleeping Lions
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:14:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Kelson knew what he needed to do
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:14:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I think you'll like Alaric.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:14:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I'm not into football, but I'd sure watch a Quidditch match
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:14:32 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Alaric is my favorite!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:14:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Alaric is definitely cool
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:14:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> And his cousin Duncan
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:15:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I totally fell head over heals for Alaric Morgan from the moment he rode into Rhemuth City gates with Derry at his side.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:15:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Two VERY cool guys
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:15:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> *heart flips*
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:15:16 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Who owns my heart, but KK has a bad habit of taking all my literary heartthrobs and making them celibate priests, darn her! 😄
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:15:18 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Me, too Laurna
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:15:23 PM EST] <Bee> I'm into any Boston team, but I don't always want to watch them happen.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:15:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Did anyone else here watch The BBC's Merlin? The minute i saw The Shadowed One, I thought "Katie McGrath in a blonde wig". I wonder if the writers of that show had good books on hand. 🤔
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:15:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> If you read Childe Morgan and the King's Deryni you will be amazed that he turned outto be the honable and caring man that he did.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:16:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Merlin the Manx Menace of blessed (sometimes blasted) memory was named for that show.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:16:37 PM EST] <HoundMistress> The first trilogy and then The Childe Morgan trilogy are my favorites.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:16:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I know there is a show called Merlin on Netflix, but I haven't watched it yet and don't know if that's the same show you mean
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:16:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I did enjoy Merlin. The music was the best, though
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:16:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> And then when he stood in the sun light on the steps into the castle's great hall and brushed off the dust on his clothes not caring what all the residents of the castle thought of him, (that cinched it)
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:16:53 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> It must be the same.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:17:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> If you read Childe Morgan and the King's Deryni you will be amazed that Alaric turned out to be the honorable and caring man that he did.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:17:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Baby Merlin the Manx Menace and adult Merlin taking up a huge amount of space because he was a big boy.

[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:18:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> He was very cute. He was also a furry jerk sometimes. He adored my daughter (whose hand is visible holding him as a baby) and my stepdad, tolerated my mom, and hated everyone else guts.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:18:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> yes that must be it
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:18:30 PM EST] <KK> Handsome boy. Tuxedos are among the best.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:18:34 PM EST] <Bee> Merlin was originally Emrys of Merlin/Merwhydden. he got twisted into Merlin of Ambrose.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:18:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> He was very cute. He was also a furry jerk sometimes. He adored my daughter (whose hand is visible holding him as a baby) and my stepdad, tolerated my mom, and hated everyone else's guts.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:18:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Sounds like a couple of dogs I knew.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:18:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Marc has finally started reading the Deryni books, Laurna, but I think is just up to the Candor Rhea scene.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:19:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Literally just started toniight.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:19:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> The Manx Menace's proper name was Merlin Emrys [my parents' surname].
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:19:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> So is....there a connection between that and Dom Emrys of the Gabrilites, KK?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:19:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> There are still two tuxes at the cat farm (aka my parents' house).
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:19:51 PM EST] <KK> Give him time. ;-)
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:20:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> We all have to avoid giving Marc spoilers....

[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:20:37 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Nice pic!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:20:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> A bed full of cats
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:20:49 PM EST] <KK> Goodness me, that's a lot of bed cats!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:20:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Cat farm, only missing PJ.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:20:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Were they all reading the History magazine?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:21:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> They want to be well informed kittehs
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:21:16 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> You're too kind. I'll be staying away from the forum threads on the series until I'm ready. No need to fret for me, friend.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:21:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> We wouldn't want to spoil any surprises!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:21:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> KitKat is the brown tabby, Milo is the gray tabby, and I'm not sure which tux is Layla and which is Cali but at a guess the one on the blue blanket is Layla because that's Mom's blanket and she decided Mom is her human.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:22:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Once you've finished at least the Kelson era books, you can also explore the fanfic boards. (There are a few fanfics on there that are Camber or other eras, but most of them are Kelson era.)
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:22:21 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I also love the short story about how Derry met Alaric
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:22:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I like that one too.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:22:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> gotcha. 🙏
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:22:47 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> One of my faves, definitely
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:22:52 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Most definitely
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:22:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> That one's Katherine's, not fan fic, but it is very good.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:23:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Yes
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:23:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Can't Katherine be a fan of her own fic? 😉
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:23:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Now the one where Derry meets the mermaid? that's fanic... 😉
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:23:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Don't see why not!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:23:38 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I'll have to find it. The sweet lady who cleans my house, Lord bless her, rearranged by books.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:23:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I'm blanking on the name of it. I keep wanting to think of Trial, which is also in the Deryni Archives collection. The Knighting of Derry, maybe?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:23:42 PM EST] <KK> Certainly, Evie!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:23:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Yes DR
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:23:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Knighting of Derry, yes
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:24:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Sorry, brain got a little scrambled there, but evidently eventually landed on the right story name, haha!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:24:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hopefully you'll have a chance to take a look at the anthology stories soon, KK.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:24:24 PM EST] <chris> rearranged your books?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:24:46 PM EST] <KK> Soon, Evie!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:24:54 PM EST] <chris> i think that would be the 8th deadly sin
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:25:01 PM EST] * CambersGhost [discord] <shiral_> skips around happily!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:25:03 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Oh, yes, I want to hear about the anthology stories as soon as KK has time and energy to read them.

[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:25:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> One of my favorites is the story to the courtship and betrothal of Alaric and Richenda
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:25:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Lord, give me strength. Rearranged your books?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:25:22 PM EST] * CambersGhost [discord] <shiral_> puts out cake and tea
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:25:27 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Yes, Chris. I'm a messy person and they were in no particular order and now are in a different no particular order.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:25:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Is that the one by Alkari, DFK?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:25:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I think so
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:26:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I have two shelves dedicated to all the various Deryni works
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:26:30 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Yes
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:26:34 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I should do that Shiral.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:26:36 PM EST] <Bee> I once read a news story about a library aide who rearranged the books by the colors of their covers.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:26:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I have a cabinet for mine and Brother Cadfael
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:26:47 PM EST] <KK> AAAAAck!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:26:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Noooo! Heresy!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:27:11 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Oh, my! What a mess that would be!!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:27:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I love Brother Cadfael
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:27:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I was watching Good Omens last week, and one guy was rearranging the books alphabetically based on the first word in the book.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:27:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I'm always amused by people who try to help me with the identity of the book they're looking for by saying earnestly "Well, it's got a green cover and it's about this big..."
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:27:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> That makes my brain hurt, organizing books by cover color.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:27:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> "Excuse me, mam, but where would the orange books be?"
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:28:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I have two massive sets of bookshelves and one in my closet, in my family home. Arranged by genre (history goes thematically, fiction by author). The KKollection is stacked vertically for efficiency. The Deryni trilogy is with me here.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:28:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I know bookstores like to joke about the customers who come in and in all serious ask for books like "I'm trying to find this book, and I can't remember the title right now, but it has a blue cover...."
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:28:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yeah, that sounds familiar!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:28:23 PM EST] <Bee> Yes. I also like Hugh Berringar. I think he'd be Cadfael's match with a little more experience.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:28:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Especially given that if a book goes through several runs of publication, the exact same book can have different cover colors.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:28:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I also have to tell people "Fiction is shelved alphabetically by the author's LAST name..."
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:28:52 PM EST] <KK> That's what interior decorators would do--or put them with spines toward the wall, so that only the edges of the pages show. But they're uniform....
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:29:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Ow, Shiral.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:29:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> That also makes my brain hurt.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:29:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> On the ssubject, do we have a favorite book cover of all time? And one for KK's works?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:29:30 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> This sometimes comes as a GREAT shock, especially to High School Students
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:29:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> YES, I saw someone shelve books this way, and it made my brain hurt!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:29:44 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Covers? they have covers?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:29:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Seriously, who wants a roomful of uniform books?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:30:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> A theologian
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:30:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I've cropped the cover art for _The Harrowing of Gwynedd_ trying to isolate Evaine's picture because I used it for an avatar for a while and I was also trying to figure out her hairstyle, back when my hair was longer.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:30:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> People who think books' main function is AS decoration make my brain hurt!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:30:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Like, cropped the picture on the computer, not the actual book cover.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:30:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Red, blue, black, green. Take it or leave it. Or is that lawyers?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:31:16 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> In many cases, I've reread my hardcover Deryni books so often that the covers have disintegrated. So I made my own
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:31:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I won't lie, The Temple and The Stone is my phone's wallpaper. So maybe that's my answer, but I have so many more to learn about.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:31:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Or which wire to cut first...
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:31:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yes, a trilogy of covers in fact, but they are favorite bad covers (horrific, even), not good covers. There's a thread on them on the Forum, because someone who has never read the series did the German book covers for the Deryni Rising trilogy when they first came out over there, and...well, somehow the boy king Kelson turned into a brawny, bearded barbarian lugging a naked woma <clipped messag
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:31:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> n around, which is NOWHERE in the actual books! 😂
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:31:55 PM EST] <Bee> I once used Evaine's image when I played her in an RPG.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:31:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Oh dear...
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:32:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I have my hardcover 2nd edition Deryni Rising inside a green leather cover that KK sent me at one stage of her clearing her belongings.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:32:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> "Kelson! What is best in life?" 😆
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:32:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Kelson is most definitely NOT a Brawny Bearded Barbarian!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:32:49 PM EST] <KK> Nope.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:32:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> At the point of _Deryni Rising_, can he even grow a full beard yet?
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:32:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> He's only fourteen.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:33:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> And Araxie would take definite exception to being carried around naked
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:33:13 PM EST] <KK> The German covers were universally awful!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:33:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> He looked like a brunet Hagar the Horrible.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:33:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Oh man, you gave away the ending! Now Marc knows he's not going to be a bearded barabarian who carries around nekkid ladies
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:33:18 PM EST] <HoundMistress> He was hardly bearding when he became king!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:33:27 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I mean, some dark-haired boys can; I had a classmate in sixth grade (age 12-13 ish) who already had to shave.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:33:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I don't think he even has a beard in KKB

[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:33:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Shucky darn. Or not. 😄
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:34:06 PM EST] <Bee> Araxie liked her Haldane clean-shaven.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:34:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I don't think so either; it seems like he prefers to keep his facial hair clean-shaven and his scalp hair long enough to queue.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:34:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Kelson MIGHT grow a beard, but he'll NEVER be a barbarian
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:35:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Alkari, AnnieUK, and I were in fits of laughter here in the chatroom once because one of them meant to refer to "King Brion's nicely trimmed beard" and accidentally typed "King Brion's nicely trimmed bears."
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:35:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> 🤣
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:35:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> There's a job for that Forester.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:35:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> We wondered who the poor unfortunate sap was who got the role of the King's Bear Trimmer.
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:35:48 PM EST] <HoundMistress> LOL!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:35:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> The royal menagerie HAD to be kept tidy!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:35:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Go barber the bears!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:36:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I'll bet there weren't many volunteers!
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:36:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I'm going to check out now. Going to watch All Creatures Great and Small on PBS. Everyone have a good week and I assume we will have our zoom session nexr Sunday. Nighters all
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:36:52 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I saw the french version of Temple & Crown for sale on thriftbooks. The cover was pretty epic, and kinda felt like the artist must have read it first. The knight on the cover was kneeling, looking kinda crushed and forlorn, with his cape flying crazily in the wind. I saw it and thought "That darn French pope, eh, buddy?"
[Sunday, January 28, 2024] [8:36:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Night, DFK

"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."
