[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:08:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hello... kk?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:09:03 PM EDT] Nick web58 is now known as KK.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:09:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> "The skies are not cloudy all day"? Central Texas says "hah". Wanted to at least see the sunspots. Hah. Eclipse? Hah. Feh, even.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:09:10 PM EDT] <bynw> Hi KK
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:09:11 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi KK!
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:09:18 PM EDT] <bynw> happy mom's day to you
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:09:26 PM EDT] <KK> Hi, all. Got caught p in a system update. BRB,
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:09:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> One of my friends lives right on the Chesapeake Bay and he went out on his upper deck at midnight to try to see them but it was raining so no luck
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:09:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Hello KK
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:09:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi KK HappyMother's Day
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:10:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Happy Mother's day to all
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:10:11 PM EDT] <bynw> However some of my friends did manage to get some good shots on Friday night
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:10:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Happy Mother's Day to those among us who have raised kids
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:10:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Evie got some good pics
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:11:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Evie and her DH flew North on friday and I believe they are still there.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:11:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi Shiral. Wonder what Kelric does for Richenda on Mother's Day. Oh wait, they didn't have it then. Darn
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:11:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> On US Mother's Day, let's remember that mother, Jehane Julienne Adelaide deBesançon ... O.K., let's not remember her much.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:11:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> On US Mother's Day, let's remember that mother, Jehane Julienne Adelaide de Besançon ... O.K., let's not remember her much.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:11:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hi Shiral, hey Laurna
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:12:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hey Laurna
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:12:21 PM EDT] <bynw> Hi Shiral, Laurna, TM
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:12:24 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Well, she did produce Kelson. But....I also think she can't have been the easist mother, no matter how much she loved him. And still does
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:12:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> She did tell Kelson once that she regretted giving birth to him, as I recall.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:13:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> That was harsh
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:13:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> And on his coronation day, too. But then also did her best to protect him from Charissa
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:13:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> True. She nearly died
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:13:51 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> She was a bit under the influence of insanity at that time. she got better
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:14:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Sloooooooooooooooooowly
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:14:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> lol
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:14:23 PM EDT] <KK> Yes, she did.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:14:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> She and Kelson were BOTH mourning for Brion, and I'll bet it wasn't the first fight they'd had since his death.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:14:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> She fought with Nigel too
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:14:41 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> It took a hot blind dude, but she got there
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:14:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> oh god it hurts to laugh that much
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:15:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Her real improvement began when she met Barrett. Shame that couldn't have happened sooner
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:15:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> ["a magic wand" ... better omit that]
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:16:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> hi all
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:16:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> ["a magic wand" ... better omit that joke]
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:16:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Howdy
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:16:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Her real improvement began when she met Barrett. Shame that couldn't have happened sooner. He could "see" with his mind if not with his eyes
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:16:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> hello Marc
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:16:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hi KK and everyone else who came in while I was afk
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:16:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi Marc
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:16:38 PM EDT] <KK> Sometimes it just takes the right man. One has to wonder what her marriage with Brion was like. Probably hot fights there, too,
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:16:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hiya Marc
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:16:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I was busy alarming Carys by setting up the Roomba.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:16:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> On US Mother's Day, let's remember that mother, Jehane Julienne Adelaïde de Besançon ... O.K., let's not remember her much.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:16:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> how are things? Great to see everyone
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:17:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL If you say it KK, then I believe it
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:17:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hot fights and hotter making up. 😉
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:17:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> are we talking about a certain mother of a certain king?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:17:24 PM EDT] <KK> And yet, she truly mournd him.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:17:25 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I always thought Brion gave in to her too much. After all he was the king.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:17:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Oh, and Happy Mothher's Day!
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:17:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Marc, we are
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:17:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Brion was in luuuuuuuuuurve, I guess?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:18:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I'm back. my internet connection sometimes cuts out on me at inopportune moments
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:19:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Well...Brion maybe loved too well than wisely
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:19:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> She was just 30 when Brion died, wasn't she?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:19:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hi March and all who came in
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:19:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I can't think that too many kings would have put up with her behavior, Henry VIII would have probably said behave or its off with your head.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:19:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Described as young and beautiful in Alaric's eyes, I recall
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:19:44 PM EDT] * CambersGhost [discord] <shiral_> snaps fingers and sets out strawberries, cream and scones
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:19:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Not sure Henry VIII is the best role model for a king and husband.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:19:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> *snarf*
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:20:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I kinda smelled a tension between them thaat went unspoken
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:20:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> DR, I think you're right
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:20:25 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> No but he wouldn't tolerate not getting his way
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:20:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> True
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:20:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> So lots of passion between Brion and Jehana, both good AND bad
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:20:38 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Who sent j\Jehana to be educated by that Deryni-hating nun/whoever?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:21:06 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Which is actually a serious problem in a king and husband. Any king (or ruler of whatever sort) has to know they can't have their own way all the time, and a spouse likewise.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:21:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> btw, thank you for your patience with my attempts at figuring out the roleplaying game. Graduation weekend is over and I am begining to breathe freely again. I took a shot at randomly rolling a character's stats and got basically the opposite of what I threw out there before.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:21:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Her parents I think. What could they have been thinking. They had to know she was Deryni
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:21:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Oh, that wouldn't stop some people, DFK
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:22:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Maybe her parents didn't realize how rabid the Deryni-hating was in that convent.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:22:08 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Congratulations on Graduation Marc
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:22:10 PM EDT] <The_Bee> They were Deryni.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:22:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Yay graduation!!
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:22:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Thank you, Laurna. 🙂
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:22:32 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Even if most of the feeling is "Holy crap, it's over!!"
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:22:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I hope Brion sent those nuns smartly back to Bremagne after Jehana came back to Rhemuth
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:22:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Or, "I did it, [expletive deleted] FINALLY!!" which is about what I said.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:22:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> That was more prevalent in high school lol. Now it's more "I'm gonna miss this crazy town"
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:23:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Congratulations on the graduation, Marc
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:23:24 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I remember graduating and then going into melt down the month after. Finally mom sent my sister and I to Hawaii for a week to reconnect with the world.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:23:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Congrats Marc.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:23:34 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> And a thousand contradicting voices telling me what to do next, all in my head. Figuratively.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:23:37 PM EDT] <KK> What's your degree in, Marc?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:23:51 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I remember feeling very relieved and ready to leave school
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:24:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> History, Masters in arts and sciences. Equivalent work experience in public history. Lots of work with research, writing, presenting, group work, etc.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:24:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> WOW Marc, nice
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:25:01 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I remember trying to get a job. then grad school.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:25:41 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Wow. What was that like?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:26:08 PM EDT] <KK> Wow, Bee. I didn't realize.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:26:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Thhat's impressive Marc. What about writing historical novels?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:26:14 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I could only get poor jobs after graduation so I worked two full time jobs for 4 years. then I went back to Ultrasound school after which I got a real job
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:26:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Hawaii is very fun
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:26:35 PM EDT] <KK> And Marc, what kind of work will you be seeking, or do you know?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:27:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Now that I am home, my Kult of Katherine Kurtz Kollection is a little Kloser to Komplete.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:27:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/479836521864888347/1239358359140958228/IMG_1794.JPG?ex=6642a1ea&is=6641506a&hm=794689a8771d590fbd86aa1e8a5b546abf4005cc95af9214912bacc042ff486f&;
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:27:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> 🎶 "What do you do with a BA in English?" 🎶 Well, in my case, edit papers and beta-read stories for my writer friends and every once in a blue moon, write something myself.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:27:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:27:59 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My parents were relieved when I finally got a job answering phones and typing letters for a catering company. that was good time.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:28:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> that's very impressive life experence, Laurna.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:29:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Marc That was 35 years ago. Now I am retired.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:29:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> 29 years in Ultrasound. and very much worth it.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:30:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> The Roomba has docked itself and Carys is still alarmed but in my lap seeking comfort rather than flipping her lid.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:30:34 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I recently got officially diagnosed as a high-functioning autistic. My life might have been different if that had happened when I was young. or not.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:30:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Well, I've been looking at museums, mostly, KK. Something in that realm would really scratch my itch, but I'm open-minded, and keeping at the hunt. My longterm dream is to write on the side if not fulltime, so this stint of unemployment has given me a little more time to work on my own projects, but there's never enough time for writing everything that we want to write, even then.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:30:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Is that something new that she has to get accustomed to?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:31:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Yup, just arrived today.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:32:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> She about jumped out of her fur when it started moving around the living room.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:32:07 PM EDT] <KK> Roombas have to be alarming for most cats, though I've heard of cats who ride them.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:32:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I wouldn't be surprised if Carys starts hitching a ride once she's used to it.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:32:33 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> It's hard to say for certain if it's for the best or not, in my opinion. If you let a label define you, it can be just as limiting as not having the right one.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:32:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I saw a picture of a cat riding on one on FB\Maybe you can convince her it's a neat toy
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:32:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> She really is a very chill cat.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:32:45 PM EDT] <KK> Very true, Marc.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:33:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Good observation Marc
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:33:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Thank you. 🙂
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:33:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Sometimes having a label gives you access to coping resources; sometimes it becomes a box people try to trap you inside.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:33:41 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> And perfect elaboration.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:34:10 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I need to learn if my prescriptions will change.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:35:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> What prescriptions and why will they change?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:35:14 PM EDT] <KK> If they've been working before the diagnosis, they probably will still work.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:35:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> A friend of mine said, of labels, "As I am sure any cat owner will be able to tell you, someone else putting you in a box is *entirely different* from getting into a box yourself."
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:35:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Definitely. The cat is happy to be in the box, but ONLY if it was their idea
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:35:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> @Bee What prescriptions and why will they change?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:36:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> lol
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:36:16 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I was co-valedictorian in high school.. Then i got kicked out of college after one semester.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:36:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Sometimes labels come with community; the "OMG other people experience this?!?!?" relief is real.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:37:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> But being boxed in sucks. Everyone thinking autism is Young Sheldon (which is typical of white autistic boys, and that leaves out a lot of autistic people, including adults) doesn't really serve any good purpose.

[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:39:14 PM EDT] <Bee> I just lost my window.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:39:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> (DesertRose: what happens if you you put Carys's favorite box on top of the Roomba? ... sorry, all this serious conversation and I get a silly tangent)
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:39:25 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> No idea.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:39:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I think if I put her bed on it she'd murder me in my sleep, but something else might do for fun.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:42:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> did ... I just kill the conversation?!
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:43:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> No sorry. I am building Dover Castle in the sims. I have been at it for three days. nearly done
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:43:18 PM EDT] <KK> I've ordered a mechanized ball for Daphne, that rolls around randomly and cats are supposed to go crazy for them. About the size of a golf ball. We shall see. It's allegedly on its way.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:43:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> let us know if she likes it
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:43:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> "I've been building Dover Castle" is a pretty unique contribution to the conversation
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:43:58 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:44:06 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Don't forget the SIMS part
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:44:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> "Just sitting over here casually building a castle.."
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:44:18 PM EDT] <Bee> bynw, can you delete The_Bee? I'm chatting as Bee.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:44:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Did it get privatized and sold off by the Tories?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:44:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:44:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> oh, Sims, never mind
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:44:41 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> When Laurna gets into SIMS we lose her\
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:45:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> In the Eleventh Kingom in the 21st century, will someone casually say "Oh I've been building Rhemuth Castle.."?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:45:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Put her into an empty pool and take away the ladder, and then I think she won't go anywhere?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:45:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> But she does builde beautiful castles
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:45:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> (so I gather from chatter)
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:45:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Evie was sharing some floor plans of Rhemuth and some how we got into Dover videos. and I was like "I can build that"
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:45:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Dfk, I get to keep her.. plus I get to d/l her gorgeous castles. 🙂

[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:46:29 PM EDT] <Bee> Thanks, bynw
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:47:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I have. Mini-Kaurna in my build and she's dating a Chris Hemsworth lookalike. 🙂
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:47:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I hope Daphne enjoys her new toy when it arrives, KK
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:47:16 PM EDT] <Bee> I can now be The Bee's evil twin.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:47:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I have. Mini-Laurna in my build and she's dating a Chris Hemsworth lookalike. 🙂
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:47:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> You have a goatee?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:48:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Does the mechanical ball have a tail or something? I think I've seen that type.

[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:48:58 PM EDT] <Bee> Melantha preferred twist ties to cat toys.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:49:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Cool. Looks Moorish

[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:50:43 PM EDT] <bynw> most cats prefer the box the thing came in vs the thing itself
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:50:48 PM EDT] <Bee> Impressive!
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:51:06 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Too bad I do not have a way to reproduce the tapastries.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:52:00 PM EDT] <Bee> Once she realized the new toy wouldn't hurt her, she ignored it.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:52:07 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Tapestries would be great
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:52:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> All you'd need is a tiny loom, Laurna...
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:52:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> And some tiny weavers
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:52:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL a tiny digital loom
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:52:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Fussy fussy!
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:52:56 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> shiral you are the one with the tiny mouse weavers and creators
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:53:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> And I stick to the exterior views
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:53:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL that is hard enough in your trade
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:53:30 PM EDT] <KK> Ball does not have a tail. It recharges via usb, comes in pink and blue; I ordered the blue. Her favorite toy so far is the plastic springs about the size of a hair curler.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:53:33 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I've had NO luck with teaching mice to weave, though
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:53:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:54:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Hi Everyone!
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:54:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Hello Jerusha
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:54:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> But I have done some virtual interiors which don't take up physical space
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:54:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> How were the norther lights
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:54:22 PM EDT] <bynw> hi jerusha
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:54:24 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:54:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Did you try bribing them with cheese?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:54:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:54:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:54:41 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Cloudy and rainy here. No northern lights to be seen
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:54:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Too bad
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:54:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Even Brie didn't make them want to learn to weave
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:55:06 PM EDT] <KK> I once did a bit of knitting on a pair pins with heavy thread. It was tedious, but it looked pretty good.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:55:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Everytime there is any kind of astronomical event, it is overcast here
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:55:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> You go from florida to cold rain. that must be a shock to the system
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:55:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> They might prefer one of the harder cheede
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:55:33 PM EDT] <Bee> Speaking of mice, I haven't heard any since I found three dead mice. not sure what killed them.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:55:41 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> They might prefer one of the harder cheeses
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:55:56 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Or gumdrops
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:56:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> No weaving no cheese. I'm hard core
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:56:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Mice like gumdrops
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:56:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Three dead mice, three dead mice, see how they...oh nevermind
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:56:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> But not two cats
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:56:37 PM EDT] <Bee> or peanut butter. Mice like peanut butter.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:57:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Everybody likes peanut butter
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:57:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Peanut butter is how we bait our traps
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:57:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> I've heard that mice don't actually like cheese. It's not exactly natural to them. I've heard that PB does work.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:57:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Actually, I detest peanut butter
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:57:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Did the mice go blind from reading in poor light?
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:58:04 PM EDT] <KK> And they didn't eat their carrots.
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:58:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> So much the better if you detest PB! No chance of you mistaking the mouse PB for your own. (I labelled my jars.)
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [7:58:56 PM EDT] <Bee> "Now those three mick really had good sight/But they didn't remember the trafffic light..."

[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [8:02:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I can just see Kelric falling for some Coroth Castle mice...
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [8:02:48 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> He'd put them in a nice cage and feed them honey. 🙂
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [8:03:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Happy castle mice
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [8:03:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Or else they'd end up where his mother really never wants to see them...
[Sunday, May 12, 2024] [8:04:33 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> scream of a kitchen girl opening a barrel and seeing the mice ... "But mouses were hungry! I could feel them!" Kelric says.

"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.)
