[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:05:31 PM EST] <bynw> hi KK
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:05:35 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Hi KK
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:05:46 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Hello, KK
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:05:46 PM EST] <KK> Hello, all!
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:06:09 PM EST] * bynw pokes the discord bot to see anyone else is over there to say hello
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:06:18 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi KK
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:06:21 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> We missed you last week but hope you had fun at the party
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:06:26 PM EST] <KK> Sorry I missed last week, but I was invited to a birthday party that turned out to have some of the best Mexican food I've had in ages.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:06:41 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Good food is always a good cause. =o)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:06:54 PM EST] <The_Bee> a friend's birthday?
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:07:02 PM EST] <bynw> my wife is making chili tonight. it smells yummy
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:07:07 PM EST] <KK> Granddaughter of a friend.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:07:33 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Can't beat chili on a cold night
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:07:40 PM EST] <The_Bee> how old is the birthday girl?
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:07:43 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> The birthday girl must like Mexican food, then. =o)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:07:51 PM EST] <KK> Friend is the one who's been helping with the mega-clearance project. Don't know if I could have survived this long without her.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:08:13 PM EST] <KK> Birthday girl is now 20, and about to finish nursing school.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:08:26 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> She must be a good friend to help you get moved. Always a major job.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:08:56 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Or even get you ready to move.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:08:57 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> A very good friend to help with mega clearance
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:09:17 PM EST] <The_Bee> Friends are to cherish.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:09:56 PM EST] <KK> It isn't the moving yet. It's the furniture clearance from my mom's stuff and the decluttering of my house, to get it ready to go on the market.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:10:13 PM EST] <KK> She's amazing.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:10:33 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Which is a necessary prelude to a move
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:10:46 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Never ceases to amaze me what we manage to accumulate
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:11:19 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> So much easier to amass it than to get rid of it
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:11:38 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Even old mail accumulates with terrifying speed.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:12:06 PM EST] <KK> Absolutely. We've delcuttered three bedrooms, and done about half the laundry room; will finish that tomorrow, with any luck. And I've found homes for more of Scott's stuff. His uniforms and hats are going to our local theatre group. They're thrilled.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:12:34 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Sounds like a great way to recycle his belongings. =o)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:12:37 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> It seems a shame that we kill so many trees to send stuff that te recipient promptly throws away without reading
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:13:02 PM EST] <KK> And of course, I continue to whittle away at all the paper files, many of them my mother's. Much to shred or go to the peper recycle at the landfill.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:13:03 PM EST] * bynw counts everyone in here as a friend
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:13:04 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> I'm sure Scott would be pleased that his uniforms were going to see new use.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:13:23 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> as we do you
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:13:27 PM EST] <KK> Absolutely.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:13:41 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> I would definitely hope we're all friends.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:13:51 PM EST] <The_Bee> Yep
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:13:52 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Absolutely
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:13:55 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> passes the valentine's Day Chocolates
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:14:39 PM EST] * The_Bee offers KK a mug of hot cocoa.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:15:04 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> I read an article today encouraging all of us to go through our attics or other strorage areas. Apparently lots of forgotten treasures to be found
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:15:28 PM EST] <The_Bee> I don't have an attic or basement.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:15:30 PM EST] <KK> And less for folks to go through after we're gone.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:15:45 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> I prefer keeping my treasures in easier reach
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:15:54 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> So Bee, where do you store stuff?
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:15:58 PM EST] <KK> But I'll bet you have closets, and closet shelves, and kitchen cupboards. ;-)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:16:36 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> A few. =o) I have a pantry in my kitchen. Dmitri is convinced it's the door into Narnia because he ALWAYS wants to go in there.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:17:11 PM EST] <The_Bee> in drawers, which are packed full. My new house-cleaner got them off the floor. Now I have to messthem up again to find what i want to wear.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:17:39 PM EST] <The_Bee> closets, too
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:17:44 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> And then there are all those storage units people rent because of no more room at home
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:17:51 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> I did a closet purge last summer. I think I probably need to do another one.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:18:31 PM EST] <KK> I took 11 garments of formal wear to a consignment shop a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully folks will fall in love with them and buy them. To nice to just give to Goodwill.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:18:33 PM EST] <bynw> did a big purge the last time we moved about 2-3 years ago
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:18:35 PM EST] <The_Bee> I need to purge, but to me a garment I haven't worn in a long time is like a new garment.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:19:00 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> My DH found some silver dollars in the bottom of his closet in an old coffee can. No way to treat them
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:19:10 PM EST] <bynw> too many many boxes and sacks to googwill. dozens of them
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:19:13 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> My rule is if it's been in there so long I forgot I owned it, it's time to pass it on.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:19:23 PM EST] <KK> Storage units. Boooooo. I refuse to go there. If it goes into a storage unit, it's out of sight out of mind--and costing, too boot.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:20:00 PM EST] <The_Bee> Yes. Give it away and let someone else worry about what to do with it.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:20:01 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Yup. Pide them from yourselfaying rent to h
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:20:20 PM EST] <KK> Purged my closet and dressing room drawers last year, and probably need to do it again.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:20:29 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Well, I had a storage unit for a sofa and chair my mother passed along to me when she moved out of her house. No room for them until I moved to my Condo. But it's nice not to have to pay the storage bill.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:20:29 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Oops, rented fingers really went berserk
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:20:56 PM EST] <KK> I've also passed specific items on to folk I know will be able to use them.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:21:34 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> It alwaood homeys feels good when you know they have gons to a g
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:21:34 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> And had a very temporary storage unit two years ago when I had some new lighting installed downstairs. I had to move everything out because the Popcorn ceilings had asbestos in them.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:21:57 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> gone to a good home
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:21:59 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> And since all the furniture was already gone, I had my downstairs rooms painted.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:22:07 PM EST] <The_Bee> Just out of curiosity, KK, what kinds of uniforms did Scott have?
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:22:49 PM EST] <KK> Army, historic British, some western reenactment stuff.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:23:01 PM EST] <KK> And hats. LOTS of hats.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:23:11 PM EST] <The_Bee> No wonder the theater group loved them!
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:23:33 PM EST] <KK> Oh, and a tail suit.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:24:02 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> I think my keyboard is possessed tonight. Skipping all over the place
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:24:09 PM EST] <KK> Yep, they'll find them useful.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:24:37 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Sounds like their men's costume supply has grown appreciably. =o)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:25:10 PM EST] <KK> Yes. Won't help on their next production, which is Legally Blonde, the Musical. But later on....
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:25:28 PM EST] * The_Bee summons an exorcist to fix DFK's computer.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:25:32 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Rrmmmm, not a lot of cowboys in Legally Blonde
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:25:52 PM EST] <KK> The movie was charming. Willl be interested to see how it translates.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:26:20 PM EST] <The_Bee> i seem to recall that Scott was also very interested in heraldary.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:26:49 PM EST] <KK> Oh, yes. Passed along the bulk of his heradry library to another heraldry buff down in Alabama.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:27:55 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Do you think Feyd is planting a beast in my computer as he did in Wash's mind?
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:28:18 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Then I really need that exorcist
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:28:20 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> sends Duncan over with some holy water and incense
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:28:31 PM EST] <KK> The guy came up for the memorial service, so we loaded up his car before he left to go back. Ditto, his kilts and accoutrements to a Clan MacMillan friend in Texas, who came up.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:28:32 PM EST] <The_Bee> I once tried to design a heraldic beast for Caeriesse.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:29:24 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> I remember having to look up what an "auroch" was after King Javan's year as I'd never heard the term
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:29:45 PM EST] <The_Bee> Remind me--what's an auroch?
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:29:57 PM EST] <KK> On another note, last night I watched Thor, and Captain America, which I'd managed to miss in theatres. Thor was kind of blah, but I liked captain America and its backstory.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:30:00 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Oh dear....I'd better look it up again.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:30:03 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Doesn't sound good
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:30:43 PM EST] <KK> Auroch is bovine, a large ox-type beast, if I recall correctly.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:31:03 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Well that fits. Murdoch was often on the verge of having a cow.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:31:05 PM EST] <The_Bee> I've watched many of the marvel movies.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:31:39 PM EST] <DR_supper> An aurochs is basically the antecedent of domestic oxen/cattle. It's a very large wild ox/cow.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:31:54 PM EST] <KK> I'm not really into the comic book mythology, but I figured I probably ought to watch those, and since they were showing back to back on Epix.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:32:13 PM EST] Nick You are now known as DesertRose.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:32:16 PM EST] <DesertRose> Back from supper.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:32:23 PM EST] <KK> Hello, Desert Rose!
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:32:30 PM EST] <The_Bee> I'm definitely into the comics.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:32:30 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Hi DR the nourished.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:32:39 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi KK! How are you? (I've been reading the chat so far.)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:32:40 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> WB DR. Hope you had a good supper
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:32:49 PM EST] <DesertRose> Delicious. Steak, baked potatoes, and salad.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:32:50 PM EST] <bynw> i'm surprised they were available on anything other than disney+
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:32:58 PM EST] <bynw> the house of mouse controls all things marvel
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:33:09 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Love me a baked potato
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:33:24 PM EST] <The_Bee> auroch steak? 8)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:33:30 PM EST] <DesertRose> I usually go for a baked sweet potato, but every now and again, I want a russet.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:34:14 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> I love both, but don't regularly eat them
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:34:37 PM EST] <KK> I had a steak last night, with noodles and squash, but I think it will be cereal tonight,or maybe a bowl of soup with melted cheese.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:34:42 PM EST] <The_Bee> Sweet potatoes are good, but not with marshmallows, IMHO.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:34:42 PM EST] <bynw> that sounds yummy DR
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:34:45 PM EST] <DesertRose> I don't either. I also don't eat salads much except here at my parents' house; living alone, the ingredients would spoil before I ate them all.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:35:18 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Yeah. Sometimes living and dining alone has drawbacks.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:35:38 PM EST] <The_Bee> I only eat potatos when they come with my meals on wheels.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:36:26 PM EST] <KK> Bee, did you know I help deliver Meals on Wheels? We have a gig Tuesday. I usually go about every 4-6 weeks, on their schedle.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:36:30 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Since you've had your supper, here are the virtual chocolates, DR.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:36:31 PM EST] <The_Bee> salads with fruit and feta cheese arebest.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:36:43 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yes. It has its pros and cons, like anything else in life.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:36:49 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yum! Thanks, Shiral!
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:37:21 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Works kind of like my magic tea pot--whatever you choose will be something you'll like
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:37:35 PM EST] <The_Bee> Good for you KK. My dad did that for a while.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:38:03 PM EST] <DesertRose> My actual Valentine's gift from my family was a set of measuring spoons. I've been looking for a 1/2 TBSP measuring spoon, and Mom found this set that starts at 1/16 tsp, then 1/8, 1/4, 1/3 (!). 1/2, 1 tsp, 1/2 Tbsp, and 1tbsp.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:38:17 PM EST] <KK> I started doing it shortly after we moved here. Figured it was also a good way to learn my way around my new town. And it has been.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:39:01 PM EST] <DesertRose> Cherry cordial with dark chocolate, I think. For Valentine's Day. Normally I'd just go for regular dark chocolate, but it's a holiday.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:39:04 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Good way to meet local people, too
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:39:14 PM EST] <The_Bee> Any good cookbooks, DR?
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:39:19 PM EST] <KK> A 1/2 tablespoon? Never saw one of those.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:39:31 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Measuring spoons sound really cool, every measure you could possibly want
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:39:35 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> I've never seen a 1/16th teaspoon, either
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:39:54 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> But darn you, DR....now I want a set like that too!
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:39:58 PM EST] <KK> That must be about a pinch.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:40:07 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> 1/8 was the smallest I had seen
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:40:10 PM EST] <KK> Only critical in some kinds of baking.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:40:30 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Such as wedding cakes for mice.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:41:07 PM EST] <The_Bee> When I cook, I tend to measure "by guess and by gorry."
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:41:10 PM EST] <DesertRose> A set of measuring spoons that got lost in the move fall/winter '17 had a 1/2 Tbsp measure, and it comes in handy when halving recipes, as I sometimes do because I just don't need eight servings of [whatever].
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:41:32 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> a pinch can vary wildly depending on who is doing the pinching
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:41:47 PM EST] <KK> This is true.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:42:25 PM EST] <KK> But eye-balling it from the size of a 1/8 t. is usually adequate.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:42:30 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> And what needs to be measured
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:42:52 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yup. A pinch from my big clunky hands is probably at least 1/8 tsp, but the Pod-Child's pinch is likely half that or less. (She got my grandmother's tiny delicate hands.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:42:54 PM EST] <DesertRose> )
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:43:20 PM EST] <bynw> anything with baking needs to be measured. baking is an exacting science where cooking is more of an art form
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:43:38 PM EST] <KK> I agreen, bynw.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:43:49 PM EST] <The_Bee> stew, on the other hand, is more flexible.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:43:59 PM EST] <KK> Indeed.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:44:33 PM EST] <DesertRose> Well, if you know enough about what ingredient has what effect, you can wing it, baking, but generally the people who know that much are either professional bakers or people who learned to bake that way.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:44:33 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Stew is more of a clean out the frig dish. Can get some really interesting combos
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:44:43 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> I whipped up some poundcakes for Valentine's Day so I could test out my new heart cakelet pan. And successfully halved a recipe for seven minute icing.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:45:09 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Yay for you
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:45:20 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> Hi Everyone!
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:45:25 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> But I was one of those people who was terrible at science.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:45:28 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:45:30 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:45:43 PM EST] <bynw> yum 7 minute icing :)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:45:55 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Yeah. It's good stuff, =o)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:45:57 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> Sorry to be late. Tried a new roast chicken recipe and it took forever to clean up the kitchen
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:46:06 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi Jerusha.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:46:10 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> although very sticky
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:46:12 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> Hi DR
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:46:20 PM EST] <bynw> hi jerusha
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:46:28 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> Hi Bynw
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:47:01 PM EST] <KK> I loved labs in my science courses, maybe partly because I was a decent cook.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:47:12 PM EST] <The_Bee> I have a young grand-nephew who's into baking cakes. I gave him a pair of animal-shaped cake pans for Christmas.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:47:23 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:47:38 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Cool. What animals?
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:47:46 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> Hi Bee
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:48:06 PM EST] <The_Bee> a dinosaur, and I forget the other. horse maaybe?
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:50:29 PM EST] <KK> How old is he, Bee?
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:51:25 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> I have seen 2 stories on TV about young boys who made money for charity by baking and selling cakes
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:51:45 PM EST] <The_Bee> seven. Grandpa Ted says when Emrys gets into something, he gets ALL in.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:52:11 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> Emrys is a lovely name
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:52:26 PM EST] <DesertRose> Indeed.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:52:28 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Is it Welsh?
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:52:36 PM EST] * DesertRose always loved Dom Emrys from the Gabrilites.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:52:37 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yes.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:52:56 PM EST] <The_Bee> I believe his mother got it from the King Arthur tales. Emrys was Merlin's real name.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:53:25 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> has funny image of Dom Emrys baking cakes....
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:53:41 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> In the shape of a dinosaur
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:53:54 PM EST] <bynw> lol
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:54:05 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Probably would think it was Nessie
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:54:15 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Why wouldn't the Gabrilites like a little treat, once in a while? =o)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:55:20 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> Little frosted dinosaurs
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:55:29 PM EST] <The_Bee> I read once that food was the only indulgence monks were allowed. Poverty was in, sex was out....
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:56:01 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> I don't imagine the Custodes had a very lavish board.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:56:09 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Unless you were the abbot.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:56:15 PM EST] <KK> Indulgences when they weren't fasting for some feast day or season.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:56:34 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> There were a lot of fast days
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:56:58 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> And probably not a lot of indulgences
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:57:08 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> More that feast days, I think
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:57:12 PM EST] <The_Bee> Maybe, but think how fat Friar Tuck was. :b
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:57:41 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> If you hang around with the Merry Men, you'd eat pretty darn well. =o)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:57:44 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Wonder how he managed that? Robin Hood must have fed him well
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:57:51 PM EST] <KK> True. I wonder whether he worked in the kitch when he wasn't hanging out with Robin Hood.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:58:12 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Or else his metabolism was slooooow.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:58:16 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> Perhaps supervising the kitchen and taking samples
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:58:42 PM EST] <KK> That sounds likely.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:58:43 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Probably liked his morning ale. ANd his noon Ale and his evening ale...
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:58:54 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> That tasting can really add up
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:59:23 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Life was rough, then. You might as well enjoy your meals.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:59:34 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> And your ale
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:59:39 PM EST] <KK> And be glad to get them!
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:59:49 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Definitely
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [7:59:52 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> I think he was really fond of his ale
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:01:18 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> Good for what ales you
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:01:25 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Ouch
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:02:28 PM EST] * DesertRose loads the trebuchet with guppies and launches it at Jerusha. :P
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:02:44 PM EST] <The_Bee> There's a wonderful book called "1066 and All That." One chapter talks about Friar Puck, who was so fat he could "put his girdle 'round the Earth."
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:02:56 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> Oh dear, I read that as groupies!
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:03:04 PM EST] <KK> Double-ouch. And on tat note, I think I'd best head off to get some supper. Busy day tomorow, with tacking the laundry room again. My sewing room is also in there, and I'm weeding through all the fabric and supplies that I'm not likely to get back to in this life.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:03:05 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> We haven't seen the Trebuchet for a while. =o)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:03:11 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOLOLOL, no.
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:03:26 PM EST] <Eris> <Shiral> Have a good week of clearing, KK
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:03:30 PM EST] <DesertRose> OKay, g'night, KK. Thanks for coming to see us. See you next week?
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:03:40 PM EST] <Eris> <Jerusha> Have a good week, KK
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:03:41 PM EST] <KK> Ah, the trebuchet!

[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:03:46 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Good Clearing, KK
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:03:46 PM EST] <DesertRose> ;)
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:03:56 PM EST] <Eris> <derynifank> Night KK

[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:04:26 PM EST] <DesertRose> Will do! And you too! G'night!
[Sunday, February 16, 2020] [8:04:26 PM EST] Quit KK has left this server (Quit: CGI:IRC (EOF)).
"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.)
