[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:17:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> It's in the low sixties now and actually a dry, sunny, non-windy day. Which feels very good
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:17:08 PM EST] Quit tom (62611b97@ABACE41B.D267D83D.63AD0D37.IP) has left this server (Quit: Client closed).
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:17:11 PM EST] Nick web51 is now known as KK.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:17:11 PM EST] <The_Bee> 42F here
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:17:17 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi KK!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:17:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> We've been bouncing between the 40s and the 60s
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:17:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi KK
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:18:02 PM EST] <The_Bee> Is your weather being sane or insane, KK?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:18:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I realized that my store of warm clothes is really pretty small for a sustained cold period
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:18:14 PM EST] <KK> Hello, all. Website was telling me it was unsafe to proceed, so had to email. Bynw.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:18:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hello, KK.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:18:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Hello KK.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:18:26 PM EST] <bynw> Hi KK
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:18:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Shiral I was thinking the same thing about my closet
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:18:50 PM EST] <The_Bee> The same thing happened to me, KK
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:18:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Your closet is possessed?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:18:57 PM EST] <KK> My weather is fine, but it's snowing In Oklahoma. Cameron got back just in time.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:18:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Welcome, KK!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:19:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I have a serious lack of warm pants
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:19:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> No DFK. It contains too few items for cold weather.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:19:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Glad Cameron reached home safely
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:19:31 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> You can wear tights under them for an extra warm later, Shiral
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:19:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I have been layering.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:19:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> @KK. How is the new car
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:19:52 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> You can wear tights under them for an extra warm layer, Shiral
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:20:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Ask me if I own tights? I do however have some silk camisoles and they have been a lifesaver
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:20:06 PM EST] <KK> How cold is it in the Bay area, Shiral?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:20:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> We just finished a week in the high 40
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:20:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> He made a very fast turn around trip
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:20:39 PM EST] <KK> It's 48 here.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:20:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Well, I figured you might be slightly more likely to own tights than longjohns
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:20:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Glad he made the trip safely
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:21:17 PM EST] <KK> New car is great! Exactly what I need!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:21:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> High 40's--low 50's KK. Ordinarily not a problem, but for mysterious reasons, the AC at work was on. We don't have control over the thermostat. So we were all bundled up in our jackets in our work areas.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:21:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Awesome KK
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:21:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> What color is it.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:21:38 PM EST] <The_Bee> Is it easy to get in and out of it?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:21:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hooray! Cameron did a good job
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:22:11 PM EST] <KK> Black 2021 Forester with black interior. I think I'm naming it Robin.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:22:30 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Not Batman?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:22:32 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> DD used to work in a restaurant where the temperature was controlled by corporate HQ in another state. She hated that, because sometimes the weather would do something unexpected and they couldn't change the thermostat.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:22:46 PM EST] <The_Bee> why not Raven or Blackbird?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:23:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yup. I always say the temperature at work is always perfect for whatever the weather was three days ago
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:23:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Should name the Korester Morgan
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:23:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Sounds nice, KK. Though I would hesitate to have a black car with a black interior in Alabama in summertime. That would be like driving a solar collector here.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:23:38 PM EST] <KK> He did indeed do a great job. And h now has the Outback, which will be much better for surveillance work.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:23:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> The City of Cupertino owns our building and they evidently like us refrigerated
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:23:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Should name the Forester car- Morgan
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:23:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Or it's perfect for another location
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:24:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Should name the black Forester "Alain the Hunter." 😉
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:24:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I like that idea, Evie!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:24:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> That is even beter
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:24:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Morgan would be perfect, for his sparkling phase
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:24:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Alaric was sparkling?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:24:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Sparkling? Black sequins? 😄
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:24:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:24:53 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Leggings will also do as an underlayer if your trousers are roomy enough.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:24:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Bling
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:25:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> He can really rock a sparkling black gown....
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:25:03 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> "He walks in beauty / Like the night...."
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:25:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Robin as in Sherwood Forester, KK?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:25:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Sparkling. The sparkle came later
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:25:33 PM EST] <The_Bee> "of cloudless climes and starryskies"
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:25:43 PM EST] <KK> The black on the car is sparkling, with little flecks of mica embedded in the paint.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:25:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> "And all that's best of dark and light /Meet in his aspect and his eyes"
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:25:55 PM EST] <The_Bee> Pretty1
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:25:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Robin of Sherwood was in Green. Morgan is in Black
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:26:16 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I was just trying to think why the name Robin.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:26:18 PM EST] <KK> Yep, Desert Rose.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:26:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> It's stupid AC which keeps changing darkling
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:26:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> He's only a forester at night, Laurna. Hence the black.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:26:31 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Damn you Autocorrect!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:26:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> AH HA
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:26:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Oh....I thought you meant Air Conditioning by AC!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:27:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> No, infamous auto correct
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:27:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> It's one of those suits that changes color according to one's temperature
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:27:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I've been teasing Carys about being such a baby that I should get her a baby sling; I found this one on FB Marketplace for $5 and snapped it up.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:27:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/479836521864888347/1206396090409287680/Carys_in_baby_carrier_closeup_1_Feb_2024.jpg?ex=65dbdae9&is=65c965e9&hm=cc87b8794aaadfe8c533f41aa6363b109add7f0307c495a2ed4e95821563c7fe&;
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:27:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Oh well....we all got an interesting mental image out if it!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:27:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Aww, does she like the sling?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:27:49 PM EST] <KK> Awww, sweet kitty!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:27:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I think Gigi would have loved one of those
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:28:03 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> How does she feel about it?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:29:02 PM EST] * CambersGhost [discord] <shiral_> snaps fingers and produces tea and heart shaped chocolates for Valentine's Day
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:29:27 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yum!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:29:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> /me adds chocolate covered strawberries
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:29:53 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> heart cookies are better than football shaped cookies.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:30:04 PM EST] <KK> Yes!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:30:32 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> You can put two football cookies together to sort of make a heart, but it's not the same
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:30:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> /DFK adds chocolate roses
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:30:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> She likes it. All snuggles are good snuggles in her book, and snuggles that don't have to be interrupted because I need to refill my tea are especially good.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:30:54 PM EST] <KK> But any shape cookie is better than no cookie.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:31:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> That sounds more like a pointy bra than a heart....
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:31:06 PM EST] * CambersGhost [discord] <azdesertrose> adds double Belgian chocolate ice cream.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:31:17 PM EST] * CambersGhost [discord] <shiral_> adds more shortbread hearts to the tea table
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:31:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Not if you angle the footballs the right way, Shiral.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:31:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> DR how do you do that? Doesn't work for me
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:32:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I don't have any football cookie cutters, so I'll take your word for it
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:32:41 PM EST] <The_Bee> Valentine's Day is also Ash Wednesday. If this weren't Leap Year, Easter would be on April Fool's Day again.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:33:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Shiral that image is not leaving me fast enough. need more tea
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:33:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> You type "/me [does the thing]" minus the quotation marks. The slash has to be the first character in the line. Also, sometimes it's goofy on mobile. I'm on my desktop.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:33:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> "He is risen...April Fool!" Yeah, I guess I'm grateful for Leap Year Day! 😄
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:33:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> That's kind of tough, if you're giving up chocolate for lent....then you have to wait until Easter for your Valentine's chocccies
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:33:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Chocolate does freeze well.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:33:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Must be the mobile. Oh well
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:34:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yes....but I am not good at waiting for anything that came in a heart shaped box!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:34:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> some one showed a milk bottle experations date that was February 30.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:34:32 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> If you are on Discord, try using one asterisk on either side of the phrase for italics, or two asterisks on each end of it for bold text.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:34:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> *Like this?*
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:34:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yes
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:35:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> **Or like this**
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:35:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Don't know how that shows up for people using IRC, but in Discord Shiral's text was italicized and mine was in bold font.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:35:52 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> / me *adds chocolate roses*
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:35:59 PM EST] <KK> Worked for me,
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:36:10 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Almost right, DFK, but don't put a space between the / and the word me
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:36:16 PM EST] <The_Bee> One astirisk is bold, 2 is italics for me
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:36:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> You're on IRC, KK; DFK is trying to do it from Discord on her phone.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:36:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> *Because I'm working on my mind speech skills*
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:36:32 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> To err is human; to really screw up requires a computer or several.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:36:33 PM EST] * CambersGhost [discord] <evie.delacourt> tries the Me command in Discord
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:37:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Where is that?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:37:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> *these aren't the droids you are looking for*
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:37:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> *He can go on his way.*
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:37:30 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I mean, I tried typing "/me" in Discord and it italicises the phrase but doesn't show the actual "/me" command.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:38:15 PM EST] <KK> It's supposed to change me to your name.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:38:35 PM EST] <The_Bee> Each site has its own peculiarities
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:38:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> In IRC it does, I think. On Discord you just get italics
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:38:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Oh well, enjoy the chocolate anyway
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:39:04 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I've never NOT enjoyed chocolate.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:39:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I have some double Belgian chocolate chunk Haagen Dazs in the freezer calling my name.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:39:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I love chocolate in any form, except semi sweet
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:39:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> i have BBQ beef ribs just ready to come out of the oven.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:40:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> That sounds really yummy
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:40:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I think I hear your chocolate all the way from California, DR
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:40:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I'll take chocolate about any way I can get it, but I prefer dark.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:40:27 PM EST] <The_Bee> I have chicken thighs that need to go int the oven.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:40:31 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Noisy stuff!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:40:32 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> The call of the Haagen Dazs is strong.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:40:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Dark and semi-sweet is my favorite. Milk chocolate is too sweet for my preference, though I will eat it if that's all that's available
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:41:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Reese's pb cups, in any form, any day, 365 days a year, for me.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:41:10 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hey Sarah!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:41:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hi Sarah!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:41:21 PM EST] <The_Bee> I read somewhere that adding expresso to chocolate improve the flavor.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:41:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I love Reese's PBCs too
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:41:30 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hey Sarah. I agree with you
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:41:32 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Those dark chocolate PB cups from Oglethorpe were The Bomb.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:41:44 PM EST] <KK> Dark or semisweet for me. Milk chocolate isn't worth the calories.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:41:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yes, every now and then, a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup is necessary to sustain life
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:41:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> DR, oh absolutely. I'm so glad I stopped in there.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:42:04 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Yup, a teeny bit of coffee deepens the chocolate flavor.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:42:08 PM EST] <KK> Tried the dark chocolate Reeses?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:42:08 PM EST] <The_Bee> Reese's #2 for me peppermint patty #1
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:42:29 PM EST] <The_Bee> or reeses with caramel?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:42:40 PM EST] <KK> Peppermint patty is at the top of my list, too.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:42:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Not yet. I'm one of those Apostate's who actually enjoys milk chocolate. And I'll vigorously defend my position, although I also like bittersweet chocolate.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:42:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I made homemade peppermint patties a couple of years ago. They were pretty easy, but my mom told me not to make them again, ha!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:43:04 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I think chocolate and peanut butter are the perfect couple
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:43:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I'm not really a fan of mint with chocolate, except occasionally in ice cream
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:43:15 PM EST] <KK> She didn't like them?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:43:16 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Too much temptation. After the nature of food, the homemade ones were way better than store-bought.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:43:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> She liked them too much!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:43:36 PM EST] <The_Bee> Most chocolate is acceptable to me
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:43:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Evie, them;s fightin' words! Mint and chocolate just....GO together!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:43:38 PM EST] <KK> Ah. Makes sense.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:43:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Bee: York peppermint Pattie's were my mothers favorite, and after she passed I had the immediate insatiable urge to get a big bag. I've been snacking on them in my travels, since I keep the bag in my van.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:44:20 PM EST] <KK> Don't they melt in the summer?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:44:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I will occasionally eat an Andes mint, but usually the mint overpowers the chocolate in most chocolate/mint candy combos
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:44:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> It's not summer yet!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:44:41 PM EST] <KK> True.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:44:43 PM EST] <The_Bee> Keep them in the refrigerator.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:44:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> And Sarah's mom just passed right after Christmas.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:45:03 PM EST] <The_Bee> '=(
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:45:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> For me York peppermint patties and Reese's peanut butter cups are tied for #1
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:45:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Andes mint candies will cause me to harm folks, I love them that much. Only second to pb cups
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:45:10 PM EST] <KK> No refrigerator in the van, I'd guess.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:45:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Note to self: stay out of Sarah's way if Andes mint candies are in the room.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:45:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Right, KK. they will be in a cool bag in my purse if there are any left by summer time.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:45:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I can resist Peppermint patties. I can't always say the same about peanut butter cups
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:46:04 PM EST] * CambersGhost [discord] <azdesertrose> begins plotting to acquire a small cooler for Sarah's van.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:46:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> LOL 😂
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:46:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Paint the cooler to look like a treasure chest
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:46:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:46:48 PM EST] * CambersGhost [discord] <shiral_> meekly hands over any andes chocolate mint candies to Sarah for safekeeping
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:46:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> I think I should be taking notes...
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:47:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Wrap each Andes chocolate in gold leaf
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:47:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> The shipping would be a pain, but my stepdad's Humira is shipped to the house in a little styrofoam cooler, and so my parents' house has an embarrassment of wealth in small styrofoam coolers.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:47:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Shouldn't cost much!😉
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:47:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Sounds like an excuse for me to visit instead.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:47:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Any old time. Just let me know to expect company. ❤️
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:48:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> It's not like your fam would deny my entry anyway, DR. Lol
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:48:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Frankly that is an open invite to all y'all.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:48:27 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Use a wire brush on the styrofoam to make it look like wood grain, and brown acrylic paint to make it look like wood. Treasure chest happening in 3...2...1....
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:48:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Nope, you've been adopted now. Resistance if futile. 🤣
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:48:41 PM EST] <KK> Omaha steaks come in a cooler. When I downsized, I gave the vast accumulation to the Mission, I think.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:48:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Nope, you've been adopted now. Resistance is futile. 🤣
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:48:58 PM EST] <The_Bee> Mission?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:49:16 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi Nezz
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:49:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hi all. Just got back from Superstars. Just barely walked in the door.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:49:29 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi Nezz
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:49:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hey DFK
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:49:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hi Nezz
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:49:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hey Bee and dr
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:49:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Welcome back, Nezz!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:50:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Ty 🙂
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:50:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> How was the trip?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:50:33 PM EST] <KK> There's a mission for the homeless. They take all kinds of things that might be useful to homeless folk: bedding, socks and underwear, towels, warm clothes....
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:50:51 PM EST] <KK> Hi, Nezz,
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:51:03 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Not bad. Beautiful and made the drive in 9 hours.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:51:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hi Nezz
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:51:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Oh, that's good!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:51:23 PM EST] <The_Bee> from where to where? Remind me
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:51:27 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hi KK and Shiral
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:51:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Backpacks, ready to eat meals, toiletries, etc... we have some folks in my area that also do this.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:51:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> That's an hour less than you expected, right?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:51:30 PM EST] <KK> Where was Superstars?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:51:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Colorado Springs. My home is about 30 miles south of Salt Lake City.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:52:20 PM EST] <KK> Ah.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:52:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> What did you do there?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:52:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Bunches of fabulous writers. Jim Butcher was my favorite.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:52:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> You were in DD's territory. I should have sent you to eat there, walk up to the counter, and ask her "Are you Evie's daughter?" She'd have freaked out. 😂
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:53:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Did you work on any of your stories?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:53:04 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> DFK, it was a writing seminar. Four days. I'm so wiped out.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:53:06 PM EST] <The_Bee> What does Jim Butcher write?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:53:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Urban fantasy
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:53:31 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I think that's what the genre is called
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:53:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I didn't have the opportunity to work on stories, but I've got some good brain food.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:53:58 PM EST] <The_Bee> Like DeLint?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:53:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Good for you
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:54:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Haven't read DeLint, so I can't answer that
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:54:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Brain food is always good
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:55:03 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Jim Butcher is best known for the Dresden Files, bout a wizard who works in Chicago. About as far from KK's type of story as you can get and still be in the fantasy genre.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:55:10 PM EST] <The_Bee> some urban fantasy
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:55:36 PM EST] <The_Bee> DeLINT, i MEAN
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:55:58 PM EST] <The_Bee> DARN CAPS
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:56:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> If you like urban fantasy, check out Seanan McGuire.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:57:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I'm covered in cats now
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:57:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Her October Daye series (real world San Francisco, except Faerie is real and overlaps with the real world) is hilarious. The title character is a part-fae, part-human private investigator.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:57:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I am also becatted.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:58:02 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hello, cats!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:58:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> They insist that n o one has fed them in 27 years
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:58:40 PM EST] <The_Bee> typical1

[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:59:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> There is also a good series by Adam Wright, and I just blanked out on the other dude's name that I like
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:59:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Brad Magnarella
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:59:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> She's half snoozing in the baby sling.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:59:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> She looks very comfortable
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:59:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> I'm jealous of y'all having indoor murrs.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:59:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Mine lives outside and I harass him every chance I get. He demands scritches and attention whenever a human is present now.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [7:59:47 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> She is.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:00:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Come visit Carys whenever. You know how she is.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:00:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Sarah came and visited me (to work a craft show down here) a couple of years ago, and basically no sooner did she sit down than Carys was in her lap.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:00:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Oh I'm well aware. Woke up with ten plus pounds of happy vibrating feline on my chest when I visited.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:01:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> 😄
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:01:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> According to Her Serene Feline Majesty here, no one comes in here for any reason other than to pet her, and no one sits down for any reason other than to give her a lap to sit in.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:01:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Cary's said, oh hey, a new human to claim, awesome.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:01:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Sounds familiar
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:02:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> The ten pounds of kitty, that is
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:02:07 PM EST] <The_Bee> It feels good to be incapussitated, doesn't it?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:02:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Every time I sit in my comfy TV chair, I have company
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:02:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> It does. Nothing is as soothing as having a lapful of purry kitty.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:02:54 PM EST] <KK> All very true.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:02:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> You are expected to share your comfort
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:03:11 PM EST] <The_Bee> always dmitri, shiral, or Does Tati take a turn?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:03:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Comfort shared is comfort multiplied. Just ask a cat.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:03:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Especially when they want to be WARM and comfortable.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:03:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Both, Bee. Although Tati never stays very long
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:04:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Best seat in the house is where the cat is.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:04:09 PM EST] <The_Bee> Tati needs her Me Time.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:04:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> 💯
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:04:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Tati is one of the best at head butts.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:04:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> *bonk* Get loved, silly. *bonk*
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:05:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> When she gives you a nudge, you FEEL it and then wonder where this little cat learned to push that strongly
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:05:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> The petite ones are the powerhouses.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:05:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Murray head butts do hard he has almost shoved me off my bed
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:06:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> She is, she feels kind of like a very small bull
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:06:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> My friend Chelsea has two cats, and the smaller is the one who'll bonk you half out of your chair until you pet her.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:06:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yup, trying to read in bed with her around is...difficult
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:07:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> My outside kitty, Itty Bitty Kitty, does his best shark impression and circles you until or unless he is done with your affection of a snack appears in his food dish. Sometimes, he enjoys pets WHILE snacking and it's hilarious to watch the kids try their best when he's as big as they are. I have a five and a four year old, for reference.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:07:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Buttercup (the aforementioned small cat) just celebrated six years with Chelsea. I went with her to the animal shelter the day she adopted her. Buttercup selected Chelsea and nothing would do for her (Buttercup) but that Chelsea take her home.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:07:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Luke would try to gnaw on the corner of my book, phone, Kindle tablet, or laptop screen. Didn't matter what I was attempting to read on at that particular moment, he was having none of it.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:08:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Sarah, I was just about to say I didn't know you, but I must because I know about Itty Bitty Kitty. Unless you're a different owner of an Itty Bitty Kitty.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:08:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Is Daphne aggressively affectionate, KK? 😄
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:08:53 PM EST] <The_Bee> "How dare you pay attention to anything that's not ME?"
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:09:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> HoundMistress has an Itty Billy Lily Kitty, I think.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:09:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> My Itty Bitty Kitty hasn't been mentioned in chat until now but huzzah for like minded folks.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:10:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Ah, so you *are* The owner of a different Itty Bitty Kitty. How delightful!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:11:07 PM EST] <bynw> 20 seconds left in the half. score is SF 10 KC 3
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:11:11 PM EST] <KK> Daphne can be very insistent. Head butts, cheek rubs, belly rubs. And like Chelsea, Daphne chose me. Put a paw up on my leg, looked up at me, jumped up onto my lap, and settled down to purr. I was hooked.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:11:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Awwwww
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:11:30 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> My children aptly named said feline when the Cat Distribution System dropped him in our yard during a thunderstorm almost two years ago. He was MUCH smaller and mostly feral then. Now he's a spoiled rotten prince, rightfully so.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:11:43 PM EST] <The_Bee> That's the best way to adopt a cat.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:12:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> That' more-or-less h ow I acquired Shelly, and thus her babies as well
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:12:48 PM EST] <KK> Yep. Some of our best ones just came through the cat flap and stayed.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:13:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Daphne could see you were the perfect human for her, KK
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:13:19 PM EST] <KK> Yep. They know.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:13:47 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> I've always said that animals know their people, their people just don't always know it yet.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:13:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> The late Pan kind of did the same thing the day he and I met--this fuzzy little black kitten climbed into my lap and started purring
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:14:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> How could I possibly say no after that?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:14:21 PM EST] <KK> True.

[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:17:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> My mom had a Maine coon mix that we had over 15 years. He started out as a bottle kitten from our old homestead before the Big Move, and came with us to our current farm as an outdoor heathen. He was amazing.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:17:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> WOW
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:18:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Maine Coons are great
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:18:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> They are very pretty kitties. but I have never meet one in the flesh.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:19:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> My Chava was either a Maine Coone or a Norwegian Forest cat.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:19:54 PM EST] <The_Bee> Sarah, have you read Miranda James's stories about Diesel the Maine Coon library cat?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:20:15 PM EST] <KK> Anne McCaffrey ha beautiful Maine Coons. I got one of her half-Coon kittens. Sadly, he got hit by a cat at under 4
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:20:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Rupurrt was lovely
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:20:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Miranda James series are fun
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:21:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Sarah, have you got that video of the cats with the car models handy?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:21:36 PM EST] <KK> He was Rupurrt of Blessed Memory, a medium hair silver tabby. I called him my pewter prince. He was gorgeous.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:21:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Bee, no I have not but I've read the murder mystery ones by Lilian Jackson Braun. The Cat Who... Series
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:21:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Sounds gorgeous. : )
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:22:16 PM EST] <The_Bee> The Cat Who series was great.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:22:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> I have a large collection of that series in my bookshelves at the moment lol
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:24:00 PM EST] <The_Bee> Try Miranda James, who also writes as Dean James. I think that's his real name
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:24:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Going to sign off. Watching Miss Scarlett and the Duke. Good Victorian mystery
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:24:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Night, DFK
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:24:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Enjoy
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:24:32 PM EST] <The_Bee> nighters, DFK. .I've watched some of them.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:24:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hope everyone has a good week. See you next Sunday
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:25:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Goodnight, DFK
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:26:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Good night
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:28:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> DFK leaves and everyone falls silent... 🙂
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:29:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Found it, finally: https://www.instagram.com/p/C2ayCqbonSL/
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:29:13 PM EST] <KK> I've just finished reading The Real Downton Abbey, written by the Countess of Carnarvon, who lives there now. Talks about what was happening in the house during the years covered by the TV seriesl. An earlier Earl of Carnaravon was the partner and bankroll of Howard Carter, who discovered King Tut's tomb. of .
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:29:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Oh, wow!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:29:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Cool!
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:29:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Oooooo
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:29:54 PM EST] <bynw> that's pretty neat
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:30:01 PM EST] <KK> Great read if you're into history.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:30:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> sounds like a DesertRose & Mom book club book.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:30:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I guess that explains the Earl of Grantham's interest in Egyptian Mythology on the TV show. All his dogs were named from Egyptian mythology
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:31:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> There was a tour of the Downton Abbey home on either YouTube or Netflix where they interviewed her also. It was a good show.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:32:42 PM EST] <KK> WW I certainly took its toll on the young men of Great Britain.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:32:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Sorry, DR, I was unsure of the reference. I send A Lot of cat videos. Lol
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:32:49 PM EST] <The_Bee> I prefer Masterpiece Mysteries. Lord Peter Wimsey was a favorite.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:33:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Plus, Mom duties. Had to run a bath for the Noodle Child.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:33:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> The Lord Peter WImsey books were good, though I only got partway through the series.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:33:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I can't remember if I couldn't find the other books in the library, or why I never finished it
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:34:05 PM EST] <The_Bee> Someone else continues the series after she died.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:34:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <sarah_thejellylady> Well... I know what I'm going to be doing next time I have some money... gonna get an Audible subscription
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:34:32 PM EST] <KK> Scott and I saw the stage play of Busman's Honeymoon in London. Starred Edward Petherbridge, who played Lord Peter in the books. Delightfu play.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:34:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Sounds fun
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:35:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I liked the TV Series with Edward Petherbridge as Lord Peter
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:35:04 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I couldn't remember where it was, FB or Instagram or what the heck.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:35:05 PM EST] <The_Bee> I drew a blank on Dorothy Sayers' name.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:35:12 PM EST] <KK> The continuations weren't a good.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:37:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I think I got stuck about midway through The Nine Tailors, because while I quite liked the previous books, all the bell ringing kinda lost me.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:37:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> And with Harriet Walter as Harriet Vane'
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:37:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> But IIRC, my library also ran out of the rest of the series around that time
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:38:09 PM EST] <KK> That's what got me interested in change ringing. Went up in several bell towers in Ireland.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:38:46 PM EST] <The_Bee> I'm not sure Dorothy L would have killed of fPeter's nephew so peter would become duke when his brother died.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:38:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I might like it better now. That was over half a lifetime ago when I was reading those books
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:39:18 PM EST] <KK> Definitely worth a try.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:39:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> And your library may have them on Libby or Hoopla.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:39:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I do love deciding I want to borrow a book, clicking, and there it is on my phone/tablet.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:40:03 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah, I was reading the series long before ebooks were a thing
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:40:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Do you have access to the university library as an employee, Evie?
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:40:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I do, though it's just inconvenient enough to get to that I don't usually use it
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:40:48 PM EST] <The_Bee> I feel more comfortable with hard copies
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:40:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I think I still technically have alumni access to the College of Charleston library.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:41:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> They moved the physical library since I graduated though.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:42:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> They got a big bequest from someone's estate and built a shiny new building. I haven't visited it yet, but from the pics it's gorgeous and I'd have been just as happy to live there as I was to live in the old library (joking, but as an English major, I spent a LOT of time in the stacks).
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:44:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I nearly spent the night in the university library once. Well, not really, but I was reading in one of the private study room and hadn't noticed they had closed the library and turned off all the lights except for the few they kept on so the police could tell if anyone was moving inside. When I finally realized the time, I quickly left the building (it was locked from the outsi <clipped messag

[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:45:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> They were like "Where did YOU come from?!"
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:45:59 PM EST] <The_Bee> I once got locked in a building where I was volunteering Someone had to rescue me.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:46:04 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> It had already been closed for something like half an hour when I emerged
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:46:10 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I got startled by a patron once. It wasn't scary, but somehow, we completely missed him before calling the all clear
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:47:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> There's a children's book about being locked in the library all night.
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:48:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I nearly got locked into my work once at a department store. I hadn't been feeling good so they sent me into the "sick room" (or whatever it was called) and I fell asleep and stayed asleep until around 9:30 or so. Not sure what woke me up, but I realized the building alarm was set but nothing to do about it, so I went and got my stuff and walked down into the employee exit. The s <clipped message>
[Sunday, February 11, 2024] [8:48:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> ecurity folks were looking concerned and were very startled when they saw me. I told them what happaned, showed them my work badge, and they let me go. Just as I was getting to my car, I saw the police arrive at the store.

"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.)
