[14:06]    hautdesert:   HP is playing with her presence, I think.
[14:06] === heritagepartier has left
[14:06]    CKTC:   Hmmm. I think so.
[14:06]    Susan:   What are we going to chat about?
[14:06]    sevenall:   But she just went away :)

[14:06]    HeritagePartier:   Phew! Got here finally
[14:06]    sevenall:   Now you see HP, now you don't...
[14:06]    CKTC:   Either that or she's really indecisive.
[14:06]    CKTC:   Hullo hullo!
[14:06]    Susan:   Now you just set a while and rest a bit
[14:07]    Ansikalden:   :)
[14:07]    Susan:   I'm supposed to be working even as we chat. I'm not.
[14:07]    hautdesert:   You deserve a break. YOu've been workinghard all weekend, I think.
[14:07]    HeritagePartier:   I just needed to rove around the commands and figure out where I was. Susan, I hope you're good at double tasking. :)
[14:07]    Ansikalden:   this is more important, yes? ;)
[14:08]    CKTC:   Are you working from home or the office?
[14:08]    Susan:   This weekend, last weekend, the whole bloody week in bloody Scottsdale. Those resort conferences are no fun unless you play golf. I'm at home, CK.
[14:08]    CKTC:   I just posted a message at the chat thread so hopefully if there are any others lost out there, we can get them here eventually.
[14:08]    HeritagePartier:   cktc, I'm not indecisive, I'm overwhelmed by advanced knowledge. :)
[14:08]    Susan:   Poor lil lost lambs.
[14:08]    CKTC:   LOL.
[14:09]    Susan:   Yoo-hoo, sevenall, you're allegedly here but haven't heard from you.
[14:09]    hautdesert:   Overwhelmed by advanced knowledge--I like that!
[14:09]    HeritagePartier:   So do I! It was so enticing a concept that I parted with the cash to achieve it.
[14:09]    sevenall:   Susan: Oh, I'm here, just multi-tasking, like you.
[14:09]    hautdesert:   Golf is okay. You get fresh air. But I bet they expect you to play it well, don't they.
[14:09]    Susan:   I don't think I can really multi task. Maybe I'll try, though.
[14:10]    HeritagePartier:   Golf? Hey, we've had snow flurries here.
[14:10]    CKTC:   I can't stand golf. I've tried playing it a few times, but I was bored out of my mind.
[14:10]    sevenall:   Chat is all about multi-tasking :-) Now golf... it's unexpectedly difficult to play well.
[14:10]    CKTC:   I do like driving golf carts though. They're fun to race.
[14:10]    hautdesert:   Well, it's boring if you pay attention. If you just swing the club around a bit and have a beer or two, that' sfun.
[14:10]    Ansikalden:   Can't stand golf - childhood trauma
[14:10]    CKTC:   Childhood trauma?
[14:10]    sevenall:   Someone didn't yell fore?
[14:11]    HeritagePartier:   Oh, dear, ansi.
[14:11]    hautdesert:   Supposedly my grandmother was a big golfer and got a hole in one, once.
[14:11]    hautdesert:   I've only played twice, and still don't know how to play it.
[14:11]    CKTC:   Cool. My father got a hole in one once too. He was floating for a week, he was so happy.
[14:11]    sevenall:   I only know that when hole-in-one happens, you must buy everyone on the range champagne.
[14:11]    hautdesert:   Oh, I bet he was!
[14:11]    hautdesert:   Everyone???
[14:11]    CKTC:   I've only played a few times too. I have no intention of keeping with it.
[14:11]    CKTC:   Eep.
[14:11]    HeritagePartier:   That sounds like a specific course rule. Haven't heard of it.
[14:12]    sevenall:   Yep.There's a special insurance for when that happens.
[14:12]    HeritagePartier:   Champagne insurance? I wonder at the cost.
[14:12]    hautdesert:   I'm still wondering about ansi's childhood trauma...
[14:12]    Susan:   I went off an expanded on the Administrative Fee. And look at all I missed.
[14:12]    sevenall:   I wonder, period. And childhood trauma I want to hear more about.
[14:13]    sevenall:   Supposedly, the champagne is to be bought at the clubhouse and they know how to charge.
[14:13]    CKTC:   Yeah, me too. What happened, Ansi?
[14:13]    Susan:   Anybody's childhood trauma? Like never being able to serve the volleyball over the net?
[14:13]    Susan:   Is yours worse than that, Ansi?
[14:13]    CKTC:   Tactico is trying to get in, I think.
[14:14]    Ansikalden:   They made me smuggle a golf-club-set through custums!
[14:14]    Ansikalden:   Poor naive me!
[14:14]    Susan:   Goodness! Hidden in your body?
[14:14]    CKTC:   ROFL
[14:14]    Ansikalden:   I'd have Filed Intent - but I hadn't read Foreigner yet, then.
[14:14]    Susan:   It's always a mistake not to have read Foreigner yet.
[14:14]    Ansikalden:   I'll never get over it!
[14:15]    CKTC:   What did they do? Frisk you? Search you? Were you detained? Over golf clubs? Why?
[14:15]    Ansikalden:   I can't stand hearing about golf!
[14:15]    Susan:   We could change the subject.
[14:15]    CKTC:   Okay. We'll switch subjects then. Hmm.... what to talk about....
[14:16]    Susan:   The evolution of the central nervous system, which gets very nervous.
[14:16]    sevenall:   Susan: Must be.
[14:16]    sevenall:   Did you walk with your back very straight?
[14:16]    sevenall:   Volleyballs, Susan? :)
[14:16]    sevenall:   Okay, that was weird...
[14:16]    Susan:   Shame, shame, endless shame. The only kid who couldn't serve a volleyball.

[14:16]    CKTC:   Hello.
[14:16]    Ansikalden:   They just looked at me and fetched my parents - who were ignorant of the whole sheme (or I would never have spoken to them again). They had to bil me out, the... IGNOMINY!
[14:16]    Susan:   I was just wondering that myself. Can't be Sabina, can it?
[14:17]    CKTC:   If there are two of her, maybe.
[14:17]    CKTC:   Poor Ansi!
[14:17]    Susan:   We have a ringer.
[14:17]    CKTC:   What's a ringer?
[14:17]    Susan:   Poor Ansi.
[14:17]    Sabina:   Take a guess, lets see how long Jabberzilla is letting me stay
[14:17]    sevenall:   I don't want to talk about the evolution of the CNS...it's all I do at work. I say Evil Twin.
[14:17]    Susan:   A ringer is someone posing as a member of the group. Like a police spy, for example.
[14:17]    sevenall:   Oh, Sabina is going undercover!
[14:18]    CKTC:   Hello, Sabi, do we know you, or are you just lurking? :)
[14:18]    Ansikalden:   Sabi?
[14:18]    CKTC:   Oh!
[14:18]    Susan:   No, a strange person is pretending to be Sabina. For nefarious purposes.
[14:18]    Sabi:   Neither,
[14:18]    Sabina:   I´m Sabi, too
[14:18]    sevenall:   And for money.
[14:18]    CKTC:   Neither. Hmm! A mystery then.

[14:19]    damiriji:   Good morning. *yawn*
[14:19]    CKTC:   Sweet. Nine is good.
[14:19]    Susan:   But one of us is mysterious. Does the mysterious one count?
[14:19]    CKTC:   Well, Sabi, may I offer you some tea? It's a tradition with us.
[14:20]    CKTC:   Sure he/she? counts.
[14:20]    Susan:   Could be a dead animal. We do have roadkill members.
[14:20]    Sabi:   I am Sabina, just using two programs
[14:20]    CKTC:   Heh!
[14:20]    sevenall:   I'm time-lagged here, which is annoying.
[14:20]    Susan:   Split personality?
[14:20]    Ansikalden:   Sabina just made a group by herself...
[14:20] sevenall is now Away (away)
[14:20]    CKTC:   How much of a lag?

[14:22]    CKTC:   You shoulda seen the excitement!
[14:22]    sevenall:   CK: This is a good time, I think. I've got 2-30 seconds of delay.
[14:22]    CKTC:   Oh.
[14:23]    Sabina:   Close everything else Seven
[14:23]    Ansikalden:   Cruel...:(
[14:23]    HeritagePartier:   Golf and volleyball--exactly what one expects in a Shejidan chat. :)
[14:23]    CKTC:   Yeah, I figure Miri-ji's probably at the earliest zone, and the Europe folks are at the latest.
[14:23]    hautdesert:   You should call it "Blood Money." Or "Weregild" is good.
[14:23]    Susan:   I called it a Termination Fee, if you care. A real cop-out.

[14:24]    CKTC:   Hope Kymmee can get here. She's trying.
[14:24]    CKTC:   Haut, does Kymmee have an account with you or with Jabber?
[14:24]    damiriji:   LOL I always thought it meant 'Bathroom Room Break'
[14:24]    CKTC:   LOL!
[14:25]    Susan:   What's a spoiler screen? I don't know anything.
[14:25]    hautdesert:   Nothing. You didn't hear anything.
[14:25]    Susan:   Whimper.
[14:25]    Sabina:   Haut and HP are discussing Explorer
[14:26]    Susan:   I wouldn't eavesdrop on a private conversation.
[14:26]    CKTC:   Sabina, I figured as much. Those lucky bums.
[14:26]    Ansikalden:   How... very lucky they are...
[14:26]    CKTC:   Yes. Who here's jealous? *Raises hand.*
[14:26]    Sabina:   I didn´t they said so
[14:26]    CKTC:   Kymmee, Tactico, and Razz are trying to get in.
[14:26]    Susan:   No, they will wish they could talk about it on the board and they can't. They will not have anybody to talk to about it for a long time.
[14:26]    hautdesert:   Are they following instructions?
[14:26]    HeritagePartier:   Hey, I'm thinking of asking who has the longest wait to get a copy and sending out this one when I finish my second reading.
[14:27]    CKTC:   Ha! Well, if they suffer because of it, I'm afraid I'm not feeling very sympathetic.
[14:27]    Susan:   They deserve everything they get.
[14:27]    CKTC:   Oooh, that's very nice, HP.
[14:27]    CKTC:   Yeah!
[14:27]    HeritagePartier:   Start competing!
[14:27]    Ansikalden:   Hmmm...
[14:27]    hautdesert:   HP, I did that last year. NessO was the lucky person.

[14:28]    hautdesert:   Last year, I had an extra copy, so I asked who wanted my extra?
[14:28]    Susan:   Oh. And what did you extract in return?
[14:28]    hautdesert:   That's why one of my alters is the rarely-seen The Book Fairy.
[14:28]    Susan:   Cute.
[14:28]    hautdesert:   Just a feeling of righteousness.
[14:28]    Susan:   Elymosinary (sp?)
[14:28]    Ansikalden:   I'd give a tooth for a book...
[14:28]    CKTC:   I usually don't have a problem. People in my city don't read. Heh. So I've never had a problem with books being sold out.
[14:28]    hautdesert:   Which tooth, ansi?
[14:29]    HeritagePartier:   I suspect Ansi has the greatest distance to the right bookseller.
[14:29]    Susan:   Are you the tooth fairy or the book fairy?
[14:29]    hautdesert:   Just kidding!
[14:29]    Sabina:   I may get it somewhen between 15 and 18th of November
[14:29]    Ansikalden:   The crooked one...
[14:29]    hautdesert:   LOL!
[14:29]    CKTC:   I'd give a tooth too. Preferably not my own.
[14:29]    Ansikalden:   Thet's generous of you CK
[14:29]    CKTC:   I'm a generous person, what can I say.
[14:29]    HeritagePartier:   Hey, don't get on teeth! I'm losing fillings too often when going to the movies. My dentist loves it when I go to the movies.

[14:36]    TacticoStormwind:   Yeah I'm either Stormy or Tac...although I can't remember who calls me Stormy
[14:36]    TacticoStormwind:   And CK trust me, it's completely fine
[14:36]    sevenall:   MiniMuffin??? No way.
[14:36]    TacticoStormwind:   The only people who call me MiniMuffin is Kayla and her family, no one else
[14:36]    Susan:   If CK called Tac MiniMuffin, what would Tac call CK?
[14:36]    CKTC:   Speaking of pastries, excuse me a moment. I'm gonna get ma a cinnamon bagel.
[14:36]    CKTC:   Anything but "pussycat".
[14:36]    Susan:   He's nice to his mother.
[14:37]    Susan:   How about "Sweetypie"?

[14:38]    Susan:   Sabina, why are there two of you?
[14:39]    CKTC:   I don't know who Sabi is. Mystery guest of the day.
[14:39]    CKTC:   Q: What do you think CJC's gonna write after Explorer?
[14:39]    Susan:   Book.
[14:39]    sevenall:   The dark and sinister bodyguard in the background.
[14:39]    CKTC:   Good answer.
[14:39]    TacticoStormwind:   I should come in here with a clever name in 1337 speak
[14:39]    HeritagePartier:   Ah, we have security on hand.
[14:39]    BGrandrath:   the cyteen sequel
[14:39]    Ansikalden:   Oh, I'd never thought of that, Susan!
[14:40]    Susan:   Learn something new everyday.
[14:40]    sevenall:   Well, I sort of hope that her next book won't be the cyteen sequel or the fortress sequel either.
[14:40]    HeritagePartier:   I half remember something saying that the Cyteen sequel is number 2 on her to-do list.
[14:40]    CKTC:   I wonder what's number 1?
[14:40]    sevenall:   Wasn't it the hammerfall sequel?
[14:40]    Susan:   And I remember saying that number 1 is probably the second Hammerfall book, cursed be it.

[14:41]    sevenall:   I think I may have appreciated hammerfall too much...

[14:41]    HeritagePartier:   I'm glad someone enjoyed it.
[14:41]    CKTC:   I liked Hammerfall. Not her best, but I wasn't annoyed with it like some people were.
[14:42]    Susan:   I spit in its mother's milk.
[14:42]    CKTC:   Oh my!
[14:42]    HeritagePartier:   I think I may have read it just after the second Rhapsody book where people journey and journey and journey and never seem to get anywhere.
[14:42]    BGrandrath:   hammerfall was hard to read...I kept waiting for them to get oof planet on a ship
[14:42]    CKTC:   Maybe it's because I like desert stories.
[14:42]    Susan:   From For Whom the Bell Tolls - Spanish curse.
[14:42]    TacticoStormwind:   Are we talking about your Cherryh books?
[14:42]    CKTC:   Yup.
[14:42]    HeritagePartier:   One of Martha Wells' books is a desert story and I liked that one.
[14:42]    sevenall:   And Hemingway.
[14:42]    CKTC:   Any sci-fi books you like, Tac?
[14:42]    CKTC:   I never liked Hemingway's stories.
[14:43]    TacticoStormwind:   Should I leave....I know nothing of this Cherryh
[14:43]    Susan:   Why don't you try her?
[14:43]    sevenall:   The Dispossessed is a desert story, sort of. No, definitely stay, Tac!
[14:43]    CKTC:   No, you don't have to leave.
[14:43]    Sabi:   Quiek
[14:43]    CKTC:   Lawrence of Arabia is my favorite desert movie.
[14:43]    Susan:   You can say that again.
[14:43]    Susan:   Quiek, I mean.
[14:43]    TacticoStormwind:   The reason I don't read anything by her is because I just don't enjoy reading that much anymore
[14:43]    sevenall:   CK: I like Hemingway's way of writing stream of consciousness.
[14:44]    Sabi:   Quiek?
[14:44]    HeritagePartier:   Tac,I'm sorry you're not enjoying reading. It's the stuff of life to me.
[14:44] * Sabi has changed subject to: I am the might Quiek
[14:44]    CKTC:   That's too bad Tactico. Maybe you just haven't found any really good books that suck you into the story?
[14:44]    Susan:   Sabi said "Quiek."
[14:44]    BGrandrath:   i must just not like hemingways conscieousness
[14:44]    TacticoStormwind:   Perhaps
[14:44]    HeritagePartier:   BG, I'm with you!
[14:44]    sevenall:   It's funny you should say that, Tac, because lately I've found that I enjoy reading less than I have before. I don't know why.
[14:44]    CKTC:   LOL, me neither.
[14:45]    CKTC:   Ack, et tu, Sevenall?
[14:45]    Susan:   It's because Explorer isn't out yet.
[14:45]    CKTC:   How do you do the purple action text?
[14:45]    TacticoStormwind:   I was all into LotR but then I just lost interest at the end and I'm afraid to start The Two Towers
[14:45]    sevenall:   I'll talk any old books to death, though.
[14:45]    CKTC:   Oh, can't help you there. Loved the films. Half loved-half hated the LOTR books.
[14:45]    Susan:   Can't read em.
[14:45]    Ansikalden:   I enjoy reading more and more
[14:45]    CKTC:   I haven't read them in over 10 years, so I don't remember much from them.
[14:45]    HeritagePartier:   Unlike so many I know, it took me many tries to get through the Tolkien books. It was totally a mood thing.
[14:45]    CKTC:   Me too.
[14:46]    CKTC:   Read the human/elven bits in one sitting, and then the hobbit parts draaaaaaaaged.
[14:46]    Sabina:   Didn´t like LoTR, the Books, didn´t see the movie
[14:46]    CKTC:   Took me 8 months to read the Hobbit and LOTR.
[14:46]    sevenall:   TTT is slightly different from FotR, but if you liked the beginning of FotR, TTT gets less like it and there's almost nothing of it in RotK.
[14:46]    CKTC:   I LOVED the movie though. All the problems I had with the book were fixed by the movie.
[14:46] === Sabi has left
[14:46]    Susan:   Sabi sure gets around
[14:46] === sabina has left
[14:46]    TacticoStormwind:   Yeah the movie was kewl
[14:47]    CKTC:   LOL, yeah.
[14:47]    sevenall:   Personally, I was quite disappointed in the movie, wasn't a bad movie, but Jackson's vision was very different from mind.
[14:47]    HeritagePartier:   After the fifth try I finally got through the books in one summer. But that was longer ago than some of you have years. (Sorry, CK, but your 10 years set that off!)

[14:47]    damiriji:   I don't think I could read them again
[14:47]    Ansikalden:   Loved the genealogy in Silmarillion...
[14:47]    BGrandrath:   i first read LOTR 30 some years ago
[14:48]    sevenall:   Possibly it was because I felt that one big element of the books was the uncertainty of betrayal, the uncertainty of what should be done, the making of the wrong choices.
[14:48]    TacticoStormwind:   How do you get the action text up there?
[14:48]    HeritagePartier:   BG, I can top that by 5 years, not being competitive, though. :)
[14:48]    Sabina:   *giggles

[14:48]    TacticoStormwind:   ::sigh::
[14:48]    CKTC:   LOL, well, I don't think I could re-read LOTR either. Once was enough.
[14:48]    HeritagePartier:   I'm not sure what you refer to as action text, Tac
[14:48]    TacticoStormwind:   :sigh
[14:48]    TacticoStormwind:   I'll eventually get it!!!
[14:48]    CKTC:   the purple text.
[14:48]    Ansikalden:   Once was enough
[14:48]    CKTC:   I was wondering how to do that as well.
[14:49]    sevenall:   The action text? Slash, then write me does this or that.

[14:51]    BGrandrath:   marvel action stories
[14:51] * susan thinks much purpleness
[14:51]    Sabina:   So now a big question: Someone once (one of our Pities) made a picture of the awful Atageini vase, who?
[14:51] * TacticoStormwind hums Englands national anthem....why because he doesn't know America's
[14:51] * ansikalden will think of something soon
[14:52]    HeritagePartier:   Tac, I think you should hum "Oh, Canada" for a few, too.
[14:52]    CKTC:   Which Atigeini vase?
[14:52]    Sabina:   YOu know "the Vase", the one Ilisdi narrowly missed
[14:52]    HeritagePartier:   No doubt the one Uncle Tatiseigi's mother didn't like.
[14:52] * TacticoStormwind hums just the words "Oh Canada" because that is all he knows of the Canadian nation anthem
[14:52]    CKTC:   Where's the picture of it? I'm slow today.
[14:53]    HeritagePartier:   Glorious and free are in there somewhere.
[14:53]    CKTC:   Isn't it Thanksgiving Day in Canada?
[14:53]    Sabina:   Where is the Picture is the question
[14:53]    TacticoStormwind:   Yes it is
[14:53]    Susan:   Can anybody sing The Internationale?\
[14:53]    CKTC:   Nope.
[14:53]    TacticoStormwind:   I have some Canadian friends. It is either today or like really soon
[14:53]    HeritagePartier:   No, but I can do La Marseillaise in French.
[14:53]    sevenall:   Of course I can.
[14:53]    CKTC:   I can do a stirring rendition of How Much is that Doggy in the Window though.
[14:53]    Susan:   Good for you, 7all
[14:54] * ansikalden frowns in consternation
[14:54]    Susan:   I can do the Marseillaise too. What impure blood flows through our furrows!
[14:54]    sevenall:   Upp till kamp emot kvalen.
[14:54]    HeritagePartier:   Plenty, with the Guild behind us!
[14:54]    BGrandrath:   does Consternation have an anthem?
[14:54]    sevenall:   It should.
[14:54]    Ansikalden:   Very funny!
[14:54]    TacticoStormwind:   OH CANADA...OH CANADA!!! Something something somethine
[14:55]    HeritagePartier:   Hockey, hockey, rah, rah, rah?
[14:55]    TacticoStormwind:   something*
[14:55]    Susan:   In the abortive 1817 rising in Russia, the ignorant people thought the Constitution was the wife of the pretender Tsar
[14:55]    Susan:   (The leaders of the rising wanted a Constitution)
[14:55]    sevenall:   I've heard Sarah MacLachlan sing it but with her poor diction I couldn't make out more than OhCanada either.
[14:55]    hautdesert:   I'm always surprised when I hear Oh Canada, because in my imagination it's the tune of "Oh Christmas Tree." "Oh Canada, Oh Canada, how beautiful your branches..."
[14:55]    Susan:   Oh, Canada, glorious and free, something something to thee
[14:55]    hautdesert:   I'm back.
[14:56]    TacticoStormwind:   Welcome back haut
[14:56]    Susan:   How was it for you?
[14:56]    HeritagePartier:   Hello! Was it a lunch worthy of Bindanda?
[14:56]    sevenall:   Good lunch?
[14:56]    hautdesert:   Yummy! And spicy!
[14:56]    damiriji:   OUr home and native land
[14:56]    CKTC:   Spicy is good!
[14:56]    hautdesert:   Yep. Leftover chicken curry, but the kids and Mr. Haut had that. I had some saag and rice.
[14:56]    sevenall:   I've had to settle for a bagel. The husband refuses to feed me.
[14:56]    TacticoStormwind:   Does anyone in here have any clue what 1337 is?
[14:56]    Sabina:   Haut, did you draw the Atageini Vase?
[14:56]    CKTC:   Saag?

[15:07]    CKTC:   The more Sabinas the merrier, I always thought.
[15:07]    Susan:   Eventually maybe it will be an always cafe, with people dropping in and out.
[15:07] * ansikalden sings I'm here, here, here, here, here
[15:07]    TacticoStormwind:   Ok well 90% of the time I'll be free do some when the times are set
[15:07]    CKTC:   Hopefully.
[15:07]    sevenall:   Cafe is nice.
[15:07]    CKTC:   Especially considering the cafes in my town suck.
[15:07]    TacticoStormwind:   to come*
[15:08] * cktc sings "Ansi's here, she's here, she's here!"
[15:08]    Susan:   The conference doesn't have to be "turned on" or anything, people can just show up and put in the conference name and there it is, if there's anybody else there too
[15:08]    hautdesert:   This place isn't exactly a room that' sopen--it's just an address that the server creates whenever someone types it in. And anyone else who types it in joins you. So anyone who wants can "come here" any time they like.
[15:08]    hautdesert:   Stero!
[15:08]    CKTC:   Kewl.
[15:08]    Susan:   ?
[15:08]    CKTC:   !
[15:08]    hautdesert:   We both said more or less the same thing.
[15:09]    HeritagePartier:   Jinx! As we said in childhood.
[15:09]    CKTC:   I've heard of Jinx, not Stero though.
[15:09]    damiriji:   doesn't that mean they both can't talk until you release them?
[15:10]    sevenall:   Must vacuum. Must have food. See you in a few.
[15:10]    CKTC:   No, it means you owe them a coke. Heh!
[15:10]    creature feature:   that's what it always meant to me
[15:10] sevenall is now Away (away)
[15:10]    CKTC:   You're gonna put VACUUMING before us?
[15:10]    CKTC:   LOL
[15:10]    CKTC:   Wow.
[15:10] * ansikalden crying
[15:10] * cktc sits around saying "ho hum"
[15:10]    hautdesert:   Perhaps vacuuming is a colorful way of describing sevenall's eating habits...
[15:11]    CKTC:   ROFL
[15:11]    CKTC:   I just can't picture it.
[15:11]    TacticoStormwind:   1337 5p34/< 1$ +3/-/ 0wN j00
[15:11] * creaturefeature chuckles
[15:11]    creature feature:   my dog certainly vacuums when she eats.
[15:11]    CKTC:   I have to admit to vacuuming as well.
[15:11]    TacticoStormwind:   Haut, figure that one out!
[15:11]    CKTC:   Especially potato dishes.
[15:12]    TacticoStormwind:   It's one of the very few phrases I know in 1337
[15:12]    CKTC:   Anyone seen Red Dragon yet?
[15:12]    Ansikalden:   I have to admit some confusion...
[15:12]    damiriji:   no but read the book
[15:12]    damiriji:   i liked it
[15:12]    CKTC:   Cool. I'd never read it. I did see Manhunter though.
[15:12]    hautdesert:   'Leet speak....something own you
[15:12]    HeritagePartier:   What's confusing, Ansi?
[15:13]    damiriji:   i never knew about Manhunter until a few days ago
[15:13]    TacticoStormwind:   Leet speak is teh own you
[15:13]    CKTC:   I liked Red Dragon better than Manhunter.
[15:13]    CKTC:   Manhunter had less of a budget, unknown characters.
[15:13]    creature feature:   not sure i want to see a scary film like that!
[15:13]    hautdesert:   I read Red Dragon and liked it. Haven't seen the new movie, though, or Manhunter.
[15:13]    CKTC:   It was made my Michael Mann. I usually like his movies, but not that one. It was made a while ago.
[15:13]    damiriji:   i have to wait for video. :(
[15:14]    CKTC:   CF, it's not as scary as Silence of the Lambs.
[15:14]    CKTC:   Oh.
[15:14]    creature feature:   it's not? hmm...
[15:14]    CKTC:   Nope. But it's still pretty good. Better than Hannibal.
[15:14]    creature feature:   hannibal wasn't really scary anyway. just rather gross
[15:15]    CKTC:   True. It was more a love story than anything else.
[15:15] Sabi is now Available

[15:15]    Ansikalden:   THAT'S gross :p
[15:15]    hautdesert:   Hannibal was awful. I just saw it last week.
[15:15]    creature feature:   ewwwwwwww gross! love story!
[15:15]    damiriji:   if they hadn't changed the ending it would have been much better
[15:15]    CKTC:   Well, it is!
[15:15]    CKTC:   It sure as hell wasn't a horror movie.
[15:15]    creature feature:   i thought it was like two films; the first half was quite good, the second went rapidly downhill
[15:15]    CKTC:   I agree.
[15:15]    TacticoStormwind:   I'd agree. Hannible wasn't anywhere near that of Silence of the Lambs
[15:16]    damiriji:   that because they went Hollywood
[15:16]    CKTC:   Yeah. Well, Red Dragon gets the series back on track.
[15:16]    hautdesert:   The first film used gore sparingly to good effect. Hannibal was just gory.
[15:16]    Sabina:   CK check your Chat bar
[15:16]    CKTC:   My whuh?

[15:18]    damiriji:   lol you lost me
[15:18] * ansikalden has changed the subject to: Shejidan was here

[15:26]    hautdesert:   You need to subscribe to someone's presence to have them on your roster.
[15:26]    CKTC:   Tactico, it wasn't a question of ease.
[15:26]    Sabina:   I send CK one
[15:27]    hautdesert:   AIM won't work for some people.
[15:27]    Ansikalden:   Says, subscribtion denied...
[15:27]    CKTC:   Oh, that explains things, haut.
[15:27]    Sabina:   Sevenall turned my subscription down
[15:27]    hautdesert:   This seemed like it worked for the most people.
[15:27]    Susan:   I like this because we get to play at haut's house.
[15:27]    CKTC:   I didn't get it, Sabina.
[15:27]    hautdesert:   CK, do you have your settings to automatically turn down requiests?

[15:28]    hautdesert:   CK, look under preferences
[15:28]    CKTC:   I did?
[15:28]    CKTC:   Ack! It must have been Evil CK.
[15:28]    CKTC:   Really, I have no idea. I didn't get any requests.
[15:28]    hautdesert:   Then under "Roster" and "Subscriptions" make sure "deny requests from people not on my roster" isn't checked.

NOTE:  I somehow lost an hour's worth of text here.  I'm not sure how that happened.  Sabina was kind enough to e-mail me a large part of the missing chunk, but unfortunately, my e-mail program died on me, and I can't access it at the moment.  I will add it when I get Eudora working again.  Hopefully it'll be soon.  Thanks!  ---CK.
 
 
 

[16:35]    TacticoStormwind:   lol
[16:36]    Azral:   Haut - that is so true! When we all met in August it was very hard to use proper names!
[16:36]    CKTC:   Really? LOL.
[16:36]    Azral:   You bet!
[16:36]    CKTC:   So did you call each other by board or real names?
[16:36]    TacticoStormwind:   The only person I know off a board IRL is a guy named Tyrak of Desar or Tyrak Swa Renko (real name is Ross)
[16:36]    Susan:   I couldn't every imagine calling CK anything else. George? Irving? Come on. CK it is.
[16:36]    TacticoStormwind:   He is my best friend
[16:36]    CKTC:   Which felt more comfortable, Azral? I'm curious.
[16:36]    hautdesert:   I'm certain I would call you all by board names.
[16:36]    Azral:   But it was funny to hear CF ring Mule and say Hi its Creature Feature!
[16:37]    hautdesert:   LOL!
[16:37]    CKTC:   LOL.
[16:37]    Azral:   To be honest Nicks!
[16:37]    Ansikalden:   Wonderful!
[16:37]    hautdesert:   But he wouldn't have known her otherwise!
[16:37]    CKTC:   That is so cool! LOL.
[16:37]    Susan:   I do call CF by her real name sometimes, but she referred to it on the board and it's in her profile. And it's purtier.
[16:37]    CKTC:   I think of CF as "Cee Eff".
[16:37]    Ansikalden:   But can you pronounce Ansikalden? ;)
[16:37]    Azral:   We'd e mailed real names so hopefully !
[16:38]    CKTC:   Sure. I don't know if I do so correctly, but I have a mental sound of it.
[16:38]    CKTC:   Besides, Ansi, I think of you as Ansi.
[16:38]    Susan:   Me too.
[16:38]    Sabina:   Ansi, use the phonetics list I´m willing to put it up if you tell me the symbols
[16:38]    Ansikalden:   I like it 'cause you call me that!
[16:39] * TacticoStormwind has changed the subject to: I am teh David
[16:39]    Sabina:   I always thinl Ansikladen
[16:39]    Ansikalden:   Ansi, I mean'
[16:39]    hautdesert:   I can't decide if it's "Ahnsee" or "Ansee" (Short A like fan)
[16:39]    CKTC:   I, being an American, tend to pronounce it the same way as antsy.
[16:40]    TacticoStormwind:   I always pronounse it Ansee
[16:40]    CKTC:   LOL.
[16:40]    hautdesert:   I vaccilate between the two.
[16:40]    Ansikalden:   What!!!!
[16:40]    hautdesert:   Oh, I guess it's Ahnsee
[16:40]    CKTC:   Sorry! I don't think of it as a trait, though.
[16:40]    Susan:   I admit I pronounce it like Tac.
[16:40]    CKTC:   A as in Father, I guess.
[16:40]    Ansikalden:   It's AN-see!
[16:40]    CKTC:   A as if father or A as in cat?
[16:40]    Azral:   I was gonna say that!
[16:40]    hautdesert:   Yeah, but to us there are two possible sound sfor An
[16:40]    Ansikalden:   Not as in father, as in...
[16:41]    Susan:   Apple?
[16:41]    CKTC:   That's how I think of it.
[16:41]    Azral:   As in Ann-see?
[16:41]    CKTC:   Short A as in cat or apple.
[16:41]    Ansikalden:   I/me is thinking of an English word...
[16:41]    hautdesert:   That narrows it down.
[16:41]    Susan:   Is it bigger than a breadbox?
[16:41]    CKTC:   And I pronounce Azral as Azz-rul.
[16:42]    Ansikalden:   Wait, wait...
[16:42]    CKTC:   AZZ-rul.
[16:42]    Sabina:   http://www.betschke.com/salad/misc/phonetic.html
[16:42]    Azral:   Az-raal, CK!
[16:42]    CKTC:   Sorry!
[16:42]    Azral:   LOL!
[16:42]    CKTC:   Accent on first or second syllable?
[16:42]    TacticoStormwind:   Hey I prounounced it right!!!
[16:42]    Azral:   2nd!
[16:42]    CKTC:   Doh!
[16:42]    hautdesert:   woah! I was way off.
[16:42]    CKTC:   I've always accented the first.

[16:43]    TacticoStormwind:   That doesn't make since Azral
[16:43]    CKTC:   Woah.
[16:43]    TacticoStormwind:   I mean ansi*
[16:43]    CKTC:   UN-see?
[16:43] * ansikalden is frustrated
[16:43]    Azral:   This is getting confusing! LOL!
[16:43]    CKTC:   LOL.
[16:43]    TacticoStormwind:   Yes it is!!!
[16:44]    CKTC:   FYI, CKTC is NOT pronounced sskkktttttssss.
[16:44]    TacticoStormwind:   I have one of the easiest names to pronounce
[16:44]    Ansikalden:   Right! UN-see is close.
[16:44]    Sabina:   Ansi, I´ll put it up in Unicode, if you tell me the numbers
[16:44]    damiriji:   I have to go bye everyone and have a good day.
[16:44]    CKTC:   Cool. I actually like that pronunciation better.
[16:44]    Susan:   I suppose I'd better go do some actual work. Hate to leave. .. We should do this more often. Bye, folks.
[16:44]    TacticoStormwind:   Bye dami
[16:44]    CKTC:   Bye Miri-ji! Thanks for coming.

[16:45]    TacticoStormwind:   Where is that qoute from?
[16:45]    Azral:   What time is it for you guys btw?
[16:45]    Ansikalden:   As felicitous as a sertain tea-service
[16:45]    TacticoStormwind:   Oops!!
[16:45]    Ansikalden:   Certain I meant
[16:46]    TacticoStormwind:   Didn't mean it to be here
[16:46]    Sabina:   I have to go soon, too (Somebody else going to log the conversation?)
[16:46]    TacticoStormwind:   I thought I had my AIM IM clicked
[16:46]    Ansikalden:   Huh?
[16:46]    hautdesert:   Nursery rhyme, Tac. "Ten Little Indians" Don't think it's used much anymore.
[16:46] heritagepartier is now Available

[16:46]    TacticoStormwind:   I think I am going to go as well
[16:46]    CKTC:   I'll log it, for whatever time I was here.
[16:46]    CKTC:   Azral, it's 16:46 here.
[16:46]    TacticoStormwind:   Bye everyone!!! It was great getting to talk to you all in real time
[16:46]    Azral:   Thanks! Just lost it for a moment there!
[16:47]    CKTC:   You going, Tac? Okay, bye! Thanks for chatting.
[16:47]    Sabina:   Ok, but it doesn´r produce anything like orderly html
[16:47]    Azral:   Bye Tac
[16:47]    hautdesert:   Bye, Tac!
[16:47]    Ansikalden:   Bye, Tac
[16:47]    CKTC:   I'll edit it.
[16:47]    Sabina:   22:46
[16:47] * TacticoStormwind has changed the subject to: Tac is teh 1337!!!!!!!!! Mwhahahaha (had to do the b4 I left)
[16:47] === TacticoStormwind has left
[16:47]    Ansikalden:   Same as Sabina
[16:47]    HeritagePartier:   Hi, again. Supper's simmering and I have another moment.
[16:47]    CKTC:   Hi HP!
[16:47]    Sabina:   Have fun, CK ;)
[16:47] * ansikalden has changed the subject to: Tac got the last word on the subject!
[16:47]    HeritagePartier:   It looks like you've scared away several people.
[16:47]    Azral:   Hi HP! Thank goodness thats abbreviated!
[16:47]    CKTC:   LOL, yeah. It'll probably give me a headache.
[16:48]    CKTC:   Yes, we're dropping like flies, HP.
[16:48]    Ansikalden:   Make me clever, CK!
[16:48]    CKTC:   LOL, Ansi!
[16:48]    HeritagePartier:   I'm usually called HP on the boards by all of you, so I answer to it. :)
[16:48]    Sabina:   If you send it to me, I´ll convert it to proper html (But my e-mail has changed)
[16:48]    Azral:   My little fingters are not fast enough today!
[16:48]    CKTC:   No, don't worry, Sabina. I'll do it.
[16:49]    CKTC:   Has it?
[16:49]    hautdesert:   I finally went and did that typing test, and foun dI"ve gone from 45 wpm to 60! Woohoo!
[16:49]    CKTC:   Woohoo!
[16:49]    Azral:   Mybe I need some preactice!
[16:49]    Sabina:   I keep telling you for half a year, but now it becomes acute
[16:49]    CKTC:   The forums boosted my speed up quite a bit.
[16:49]    HeritagePartier:   Are you taking keyboarding, haut? I'm teaching three sections of it at the moment. :(
[16:49]    CKTC:   There's a site online that shows you your typing speed, HP.
[16:49]    hautdesert:   wow! I took typing in high school. On a typewriter.
[16:49] * ansikalden is a slow typer and proud of it
[16:50]    CKTC:   http://www.typingtest.com/
[16:50]    hautdesert:   One of the most useful things I ever learned.
[16:50]    Sabina:   So, nobody knows where I can find a picture of the Atageini vase?
[16:50]    CKTC:   My mom taught me how to type.
[16:50]    Azral:   AS long as noone expects to make sense of what I type - Im fast!
[16:50]    HeritagePartier:   Same here, as far as learning. Nowadays there's great software out there. I'll remember the URL and suggest it to a few of my most capable students.
[16:50]    hautdesert:   I didn't even know it existed, Sabina.
[16:50]    CKTC:   Sorry, Sabina. I'll keep an eye out for it though.
[16:50]    hautdesert:   Well, I do ninety, if you do't want to have to read it.
[16:51]    Sabina:   The link is somewhere in the pit
[16:51]    CKTC:   It doesn't teach, HP, it only measures your speed if you're curious.
[16:51]    HeritagePartier:   If I find it again, Sabina, I'll let you know. I keep thinking it was something I saw at the beginning of summer.
[16:51]    CKTC:   If I'm sloppy, I can do over 100, but I make mistakes that way.
[16:51]    HeritagePartier:   CK, I've got the lessons for all of them, but an additional speed test might amuse some of them.
[16:51]    Sabina:   Summer, Sztranger than Truth rings true
[16:51]    hautdesert:   My mom types with four fingers and her thumb--I learned watching her, and had to unlern it all in school.
[16:51]    HeritagePartier:   Sabina, I seem to remember it being a link to someone's personal web site.
[16:51]    CKTC:   One handed?
[16:52]    hautdesert:   No, index and second of each hand.
[16:52]    hautdesert:   With a thumb for the space bar.
[16:52]    Sabina:   Ansi denies responsiblity
[16:52]    hautdesert:   She's pretty fast, but she can't look away from the screen.
[16:52]    hautdesert:   Or her fingers.
[16:52]    CKTC:   Oh.
[16:53]    hautdesert:   I have been eternally grateful for the ability to touch-type--no lack of temp jobs that way.
[16:53]    CKTC:   I can't imagine posting any other way. I don't like to have to look at my hands.
[16:54]    CKTC:   Lull. :) Has it been 7 or 20 minutes?
[16:54] * ansikalden has time to check the dictionary
[16:54] * cktc wonders what Ansi will find.
[16:54]    Sabina:   Bye
[16:54]    Azral:   Since what?
[16:54]    CKTC:   Bye, Sabina! Thanks for coming.
[16:54]    hautdesert:   What I like is, when I started, I had to think of each letter, and with an unfamiliar word (like unfamiliar) i stil do, but with common words I just think them and there they are on the screen.
[16:54]    Azral:   Bye Sabina
[16:54]    CKTC:   Since the last Lull in the conversation, Azral.
[16:54]    Ansikalden:   While typing, I mean, that's how slow it goes.
[16:54]    hautdesert:   bye, sabina!
[16:55]    Azral:   Oh I see!
[16:55]    Ansikalden:   But I use ALL fingers
[16:55]    HeritagePartier:   Is everyone trying to make Sabina go away?
[16:55]    hautdesert:   I think Sabina said bye.
[16:55]    CKTC:   We were talking earlier, saying that every 7 or 20 minutes there's a lull. Haut had heard 20, I had heard 7.
[16:55] === sabina has left
[16:55]    HeritagePartier:   Ah, it's easy to stick around one more minute...and one more minute...
[16:55]    CKTC:   Sabina said bye. I don't want her to go away, but if she must, she must.
[16:55]    CKTC:   Heehee. Chat crack.
[16:56]    hautdesert:   CK, my brain processsed that the wrong way at first....
[16:56]    Ansikalden:   My back hurts
[16:56]    hautdesert:   And I had to really think hard.
[16:56]    CKTC:   It's like when you're a kid, and you have to go to bed early while the adults are still at the party.
[16:56]    CKTC:   LOL, haut!
[16:56]    hautdesert:   LOL!
[16:56]    HeritagePartier:   Poor Ansi. It's late there and you've been around since the earliest minutes of the chat that I know of.
[16:56]    CKTC:   If we get Ansi really tired, maybe she'll post some funny things.
[16:57] * ansikalden is greatful for HP's sympathy
[16:57]    CKTC:   What word did you find, Ansi?
[16:57]    Azral:   My head hurts, but that's just stress! LOL!
[16:57]    HeritagePartier:   Is that kind?
[16:57]    hautdesert:   No, but it's amusing!
[16:57]    Ansikalden:   What! I'm never funny!
[16:57]    hautdesert:   ROFL, Ansi!
[16:57]    CKTC:   Sure you are, Ansi! You're gently humorous.
[16:57] * ansikalden looks sideways at everyone present
[16:58]    HeritagePartier:   That's quite a trick, Ansi!
[16:58] * cktc grins back at Ansi.
[16:58]    Azral:   You beat me to it HP! I was gonna say that!
[16:58]    CKTC:   LOL
[16:58]    Ansikalden:   But NOT a funny trick, mind you!
[16:58]    CKTC:   Psychic moment.
[16:58]    Azral:   Yep!
[16:58]    HeritagePartier:   It depends upon the expression on your face.
[16:58]    CKTC:   Okay, okay. Always a very serious and reserved Ansi.
[16:58]    Azral:   Reserved for what?
[16:59]    CKTC:   Oh my.
[16:59] * ansikalden has a serene face
[16:59]    CKTC:   LOL. Serenity suits you.
[16:59] * cktc is anything but serene.
[16:59]    HeritagePartier:   Let's liven Ansi up! Hey, need a copy of Explorer?
[16:59]    Azral:   It's the way it falls in soft folds around Ansi's ankles
[16:59]    Ansikalden:   Reserved for serenity
[16:59]    CKTC:   LOL, Az.
[17:00]    CKTC:   Ack! HP, that's cruel.
[17:00]    CKTC:   :-P
[17:00]    hautdesert:   Or generous...
[17:00]    CKTC:   Or both.
[17:00]    HeritagePartier:   No, I'm wondering if Ansi should get the extra copy of Explorer I'll have.
[17:00] * ansikalden is speechless when HP mentions Explorer
[17:00]    Azral:   Hey all you fast typists could transcribe it for Ansi, here!
[17:00]    CKTC:   I can wait.....*grits teeth*... No really, no problem....
[17:00]    HeritagePartier:   Well, I believe you've said the arrival of new CJC books is very tardy in your neighborhood.
[17:00]    CKTC:   How many more days? ACK!
[17:00]    hautdesert:   I'm not that fast! It took me months to get through Foreigner.
[17:01]    hautdesert:   Check the countdown..
[17:01]    CKTC:   Typing it?
[17:01]    Azral:   We can wait! LOL!
[17:01]    hautdesert:   Yep. For the quote site.
[17:01]    HeritagePartier:   No, I thought I'd mail it.
[17:01] * ansikalden sings I live in a backwater kind of place
[17:01]    CKTC:   Woohoo, 23!
[17:01]    hautdesert:   I'm halfway through Invader, and haven't gotten back to it for awhile.
[17:02]    CKTC:   23 days until Explorer. 65 days until TTT. 260 days until I graduate from residency. Things are looking good!
[17:02]    HeritagePartier:   So--when I finish a re-reading of the advance copy I have, I'd be pleased to extend the courtesy of sending it in your general direction.
[17:02]    hautdesert:   Woohoo, CK!
[17:02]    HeritagePartier:   CK, you're watching the clock!
[17:02]    CKTC:   Heck, yeah!
[17:03]    Ansikalden:   HP, I'm... I'm...
[17:03]    HeritagePartier:   eager to read, yes?
[17:03]    hautdesert:   speechless, apparently.
[17:03]    CKTC:   Yeah. Wow.
[17:03]    Ansikalden:   What can I do?
[17:03]    HeritagePartier:   Well, I pity anyone who has to wait even longer than the rest of us to read the latest installment in The Exciting Adventures of Bren Cameron.
[17:03]    Ansikalden:   And say?
[17:04]    HeritagePartier:   Let me have your address and I'll see it wanders across the ocean.
[17:04]    CKTC:   Me too. Waiting until the release date is bad enough.
[17:04]    hautdesert:   Hmmm.
[17:04] * hautdesert ponders
[17:04]    CKTC:   I don't mind waiting though. November's gonna be a crazy month.
[17:05]    Ansikalden:   Ther's the thing about postage, too
[17:05] * cktc airs out the cobwebs in his brain.
[17:05] * ansikalden is thinking of angels
[17:05]    HeritagePartier:   It can't be that bad for postage.
[17:05] * cktc is thinking of food again.
[17:05]    hautdesert:   Overseas, it can be.
[17:05]    hautdesert:   Sometimes.
[17:05] * ansikalden thinks angles have names
[17:05]    hautdesert:   But worth it, I'd think.
[17:05]    HeritagePartier:   I had to send things to my brother when he was in Helsinki last year. It's not that bad.
[17:05]    hautdesert:   Yes, some are called "obtuse" and some "acute"
[17:05]    HeritagePartier:   Please, let me be acute!
[17:06] * cktc is growing suspicious since Azral hasn't uttered a peep.
[17:06]    HeritagePartier:   Azral is packing and ready to move further away.
[17:06]    Ansikalden:   Really?
[17:06]    HeritagePartier:   Certainly.
[17:06] * cktc wonders what Azral is up to.
[17:06]    CKTC:   Where to?
[17:06]    Azral:   Az is trying to think of something to say that someone else doesn't say first! LOL!
[17:06]    HeritagePartier:   Upper Mongolia, probably...
[17:06]    CKTC:   Sure you are.
[17:06]    Azral:   Psychic attack tonight!
[17:07]    CKTC:   LOL.
[17:07]    CKTC:   BRB.
[17:07]    HeritagePartier:   just a second...be right back
[17:07]    hautdesert:   Uh-oh! supper's burning!
[17:08]    Azral:   I was trying to work out how to get the bit in purple? Doh!
[17:08]    hautdesert:   make a slash and then type "me" with no space in between the slash and the me. Then space, and type the rest that you want.
[17:08]    Azral:   Thanks Haut!
[17:08]    hautdesert:   */me makes an example
[17:09]    hautdesert:   without the asterisk, of course.
[17:09]    hautdesert:   I had to ask, earlier, and these nice people showed me how.
[17:09] * ansikalden is contemplating greatfulness
[17:09] * Azral Like this?
[17:09]    Azral:   Aha!
[17:09] * hautdesert congratulates Azral
[17:09] * Azral thanks Haut
[17:09] * cktc is still wondering how to change the subject line...
[17:10] * ansikalden has changed the subject to: Poor CK!
[17:10]    hautdesert:   Lookup above. There should be a text box above the chat box labeled "subject"
[17:10] * Azral has changed the subject to: Like this?
[17:10]    hautdesert:   Right above where our conversation is appearing.
[17:10]    Ansikalden:   A page and arrow sign
[17:11]    CKTC:   Yeah.
[17:11]    CKTC:   I see that.
[17:11]    hautdesert:   type in that box.
[17:11]    CKTC:   Oh, I've been trying that.
[17:11]    hautdesert:   then click the page with the arrow.
[17:11]    CKTC:   Doh! Is THAT what that icon is for.
[17:11] * ansikalden has changed the subject to: Write the title and click it
[17:11]    hautdesert:   Yep.
[17:11] * cktc smacks heel of hand against forehead.
[17:11]    CKTC:   I've been hitting Enter.
[17:11]    Azral:   i did too at first!
[17:11]    HeritagePartier:   Oops! My brother just called--he's in town (when he's supposed to be in Norfolk, VA). I've got to go in a moment.
[17:12] * cktc has changed the subject to: The Idiocy of One CKTC, Dead Cat.
[17:12] * hautdesert applauds CK
[17:12]    Azral:   Yaaaay!
[17:12] * cktc does a happy dance.
[17:12]    HeritagePartier:   Ansi, if you'd add your address to the separate chat box, I'll record it and use it later in the week.
[17:12]    hautdesert:   that's an awfully long way to travel on short notice, HP.

[17:16]    creature feature:   i'm cheating really. i've used IRC before so this isn't really that different
[17:16]    hautdesert:   It's not intuitively obvious.
[17:16]    Azral:   Funny I said the same thing CF!
[17:16] * ansikalden has changed the subject to: HeritagePartier rules!
[17:16]    hautdesert:   I had to ask about the */me stuff.
[17:16]    CKTC:   Are there any other cool things to try?

[17:18]    Azral:   Is it raining there? It's not here yet!
[17:18]    CKTC:   What exactly is in porridge anyway? Is it oatmeal? Cornmeal?
[17:18] * ansikalden will go to feed the angry cat, back in a rush
[17:18]    hautdesert:   It's sunny here, but cool.
[17:18]    CKTC:   I take it I'm not the angry cat she's referring to?
[17:19]    CKTC:   It's sunny and cool here too. Perfect weather, actually.
[17:19]    creature feature:   it's rolled oats that you heat up with water (ugh) or milk (yum) to make a gooey substance.
[17:19]    hautdesert:   I think it's any kind of "meal" but I've usually heard it for oatmeal.
[17:19]    CKTC:   Blue skies, lazy clouds, temp in the 60's.
[17:19]    hautdesert:   You cook your porridge in milk?
[17:19]    CKTC:   Oh. So it's like a melted granola bar.
[17:19]    creature feature:   yup. i'm a heretic
[17:19]    Azral:   I take it we are talking instant here CF?
[17:19]    hautdesert:   I tried it that way, and didn't like it. But I like cream of wheat that way, not with water.
[17:19]    creature feature:   err..i suppose so. scott's porridge oats, straight out the packet
[17:19]    hautdesert:   Ah, instant!
[17:20]    CKTC:   I've never been much for breakfast goos.
[17:20]    Azral:   AS opposed to boiling i the pan porridge oats?
[17:20]    creature feature:   are you trying to tell me that there are people who, like, grind up their own oats or something?
[17:20]    CKTC:   Yeah, they grow it in their window sills.
[17:20]    creature feature:   no, i boil it up in the pan and it does bubbling lava impressions
[17:20]    hautdesert:   No, but you have to cook them, if you do't get instant ones.
[17:20]    CKTC:   No. they don't.
[17:20]    Azral:   So not instant - real!
[17:21]    creature feature:   aha!
[17:21]    hautdesert:   Some porridge you just pour boiling water over, and the rehydrate. Some you have to boil
[17:21]    hautdesert:   I like real best, though some of the instant flavors are kind of nice.
[17:21]    Azral:   Ach Aye!
[17:21]    creature feature:   rehydrated porridge? UGH!!! i'm glad we cleared up that important point of contention!
[17:21]    Azral:   Don't knock it when you've got 2 minutes for brekky!
[17:21]    hautdesert:   Actually, I make it in the microwave--oats & cold water, nuke it for 2 minutes.
[17:22]    creature feature:   okay, but i only have it in the evening
[17:22]    hautdesert:   That's quick oats, though, not "Old fashinoned" which takes longer.
[17:22]    Ansikalden:   Hah!, Not CK - Lizzie the ALIVE cat! And I had to pet her and say was so sorry, now eat and I'll play with you later and take you to your sister tomorrow so you can climb trees there.
[17:22]    hautdesert:   Mr haut had never had anything but instant oats, and tried to make some once, from my canister of real ones. He was disappointed.
[17:22]    Azral:   Old fashioned! Boiled up and simmered for ages with salt in it!
[17:23]    CKTC:   Lucky Lizzie! I'd love to eat and then climb trees.
[17:24]    Ansikalden:   I know, she lives a wonderful life...

[18:17]    CKTC:   It's 18:15 here.
[18:17]    CKTC:   Yeah, they are.
[18:17]    CKTC:   And it makes scheduling these chats difficult!
[18:17]    Ansikalden:   It's bedtime here... :)... really, it is...not that you'll believe me :p
[18:17]    CKTC:   No, I believe you.
[18:18]    CKTC:   It must be past midnight there.
[18:18]    creature feature:   yeh. it's not usually a problem here because ordinarly i stay up until about 1am
[18:18]    CKTC:   Me too. I usually stay up well past midnight.
[18:18]    Ansikalden:   I meant since I never go to bed...
[18:18]    CKTC:   You don't?
[18:18]    CKTC:   Woohoo! We're all nightowls.
[18:18]    Ansikalden:   I linger, you notice?
[18:18]    CKTC:   LOL, yup.

[18:19]    creature feature:   there's definitely two classes of people. one sort gets up early, always, and goes to bed early. the other sort always goes to bed and gets up late.
[18:19] * ansikalden is thinking awake thoughts
[18:19]    CKTC:   In an ideal world, I'd go to bed at 5AM and wake up at noon.
[18:19]    creature feature:   i always find that even if i have to get into a routine of getting up early, the minute i don't have to, i stay up late again :b
[18:19]    Ansikalden:   Lovely
[18:19]    CKTC:   Same here, CF!
[18:19]    Azral:   Late to bed early to rise!
[18:20]    creature feature:   hmm, i'm not that extreme. probably go to bed at 1-2 and get up at 11
[18:20]    Ansikalden:   I love sleeping in the morning!
[18:20]    creature feature:   me too :)
[18:20]    CKTC:   Me too. I love being able to stay in bed and not get up right away.
[18:20]    CKTC:   And I like staying up late at night because it's quiet. And the air smells nice.
[18:20]    Ansikalden:   To stay in bed and read a bit before rising for real
[18:20]    Azral:   I feel like the White Rabbit all the time! No time to lie in!
[18:21]    creature feature:   it's funny though, if i do have to get up really early, i always appreciate the dawn
[18:21]    CKTC:   That's how I am at night.
[18:21]    CKTC:   I'd rather appreciate the dawn before going to bed.
[18:21]    creature feature:   lol!
[18:22] * creaturefeature is listening to everyday by the cinematic orchestra, which is very good
[18:22]    CKTC:   I used to do that sometimes, go completely nocturnal for a week or two during medschool exams.
[18:22]    Ansikalden:   Owwww, I like the dawn in winter
[18:22]    Ansikalden:   8-9 a.m.
[18:22]    CKTC:   Winter is good!
[18:22]    CKTC:   what is the cinematic orchestra?
[18:22]    creature feature:   a sort of jazz group
[18:23]    CKTC:   Oh! I don't know much about jazz, but I like listening to it. Except for the really arty stuff with no melody.
[18:23]    creature feature:   i don't really like jazz, but i like their stuff
[18:23]    CKTC:   Oh.
[18:25] * ansikalden twirls in a circle looking for her friends
[18:25] * cktc gets dizzy watching Ansi.
[18:25] * Azral waves at Ansi
[18:26]    Ansikalden:   Oh, there you are!
[18:26] * cktc tries to climb curtains as well.
[18:26]    Ansikalden:   CK, where's your dignity?
[18:26]    Azral:   Bad Kitty! Have you no shame!
[18:26]    CKTC:   What dignity? ;)
[18:26]    Azral:   There we go again! LOL!
[18:26]    CKTC:   Nope.
[18:27] * ansikalden says "Be dignified"
[18:27] * cktc tries really hard, but it goes against his nature!
[18:27]    Ansikalden:   OK, just a thought... ;)
[18:28]    CKTC:   LOL
[18:28]    creature feature:   awwwwww right! I was just browsing through my Amazon recommendations, and in my DVD section they recommended the first season of Red Dwarf - they're finally releasing it on DVD! Woohoo!
[18:29]    CKTC:   Hmm! I've never seen that show.
[18:29]    Ansikalden:   Red Dwarf, wonderful!
[18:29]    Azral:   I was watching RD last night on Sky! Did you see any
[18:29]    CKTC:   They've shown it on cable here, but I can't remember what channel.
[18:29]    Azral:   Back to back eps
[18:30]    creature feature:   i don't have sky, sob. i've only seen bits and pieces of it on the BBC
[18:30]    Azral:   Oh CF! Poor You! Come and visit one time and we can watch loads of RD!
[18:31]    creature feature:   that is a good idea :)
[18:31]    Ansikalden:   I'm years behind, lightspeed still takes time :(
[18:31]    creature feature:   they're releasing season 1 on Nov 4. Remind me to stop spending money this month, or I won't be able to buy all the November stuff I want!
[18:31]    Azral:   LOL!
[18:32]    CKTC:   Like Explorer.
[18:33]    creature feature:   top of the list
[18:33]    CKTC:   Heh!
[18:33] * ansikalden whispers "Explorer!"
[18:33]    CKTC:   Too many good things to wait for this season. Woohoo!
[18:34]    Azral:   So ...um can't you just go and download the new version, like anyone else? :-p
[18:34]    Ansikalden:   It'll be dull after newyear
[18:34]    creature feature:   i hate it how everything good comes out in the winter. all the good films for example. it feels like having to starve all summer, then binge eat all winter!
[18:34]    CKTC:   No, 'cause then there's next year's batch of movies and books to wait for. Woohoo!
[18:34]    CKTC:   Well, blame the Oscars for that.
[18:34] * ansikalden suspects CK of liking to wait
[18:34]    CKTC:   I actually like the summer movies.
[18:34]    CKTC:   It's the time between Jan and April that sucks!
[18:35]    CKTC:   No good action movies. No good dramas.
[18:35] * cktc confirms ansi's suspicions.
[18:35]    creature feature:   i'm not usually keen on summer films
[18:35]    CKTC:   I like summer and winter films for completely different reasons. Both are good for me. The big action/sci-fi movies usually come out in summer.
[18:36]    Ansikalden:   But summer, oh lovely summer, go out into the nature not to the movies :p
[18:36]    creature feature:   yeh, i guess i'm not that keen on action films ftmp
[18:36]    CKTC:   But Jan-early April is usually a bad time since there are no good dramas or action movies.
[18:36]    CKTC:   Summer's too hot here! It's nice to cool off at the movies.
