Sundays with Katherine
June 25th 2006
* KK joins and is greeted by everyone
~KK~ Hi, guys.
~RainbowDragon~ How have you been, Katherine?
~KK~ Sorry I wasn't here last week. We went for "drinks" at friends' house, and stayed for dinner, and stayed to chat after.... Got home around 2 AM!
~RainbowDragon~ chats with good friends is time well spent though
~the_Bee~ "home" still Holybrooke?
~KK~ Been ok. Have just finished reviewing the copy edited manuscript of Childe Morgan.
~RainbowDragon~ How is the new computer doing, KK?
~KK~ Yep, still here. Wednesday is the big day. New computer is fine.
~Wrengl~ moving day already!?
~KK~ No, auction day. Lots of interest.
~RainbowDragon~ thats a good thing
* slobbit joins and is greeted by everyone
~Wrengl~ what are you auctioning? I missed your last visit here, not feeling well
~KK~ The house.
~slobbit~ hi folks, RainbowDragon & the_Bee and kk
~KK~ Pat, feeling better now?
~Wrengl~ so you decided to auction it?
~Wrengl~ actually not really
~KK~ Yep, that was the decision from the beginning.
~Wrengl~ i have not rebounded from the last chemo session as i had been
~Wrengl~ little energy although heat and humidity could contribute to that
~the_Bee~ hope you get a good price, esp. after all the work
you put into it
~Wrengl~ but I will be well this week and next
~KK~ I understand there's record heat in most of the US this weekend.
~Wrengl~ i am volunteering for the visit of the Godspeed to New York
~KK~ The Godspeed?
~Wrengl~ it is a reproduction of one of the ships that brought the first colonists to Jamestown
~Wrengl~ a sailing reproduction
~KK~ Double cool!
~Wrengl~ it goes to boston after new york
~KK~ I love tall ships.
~Wrengl~ it will be at south street seaport
~the_Bee~ a tall ship came to Boston recently. I didn't get to see it, though
~Wrengl~ it is amazingly small, as I recall from the original reproduction, to have carried that many people
~KK~ What are you volunteering to do, Pat?
~the_Bee~ sterage was very crowded, I bet
~Wrengl~ will find out tomorrow at orientation they have docent and guide positions and office work
~Mistyck~ ahh cool
~jemler~ You're a surprise volunteer?
~KK~ Ah. That sounds great.
~Wrengl~ since i was a history major and have archaeology training anything is possible
~Wrengl~ they will tell us all tomorrow at orientation what our assignments will be
~KK~ Let us know when you find out.
~jemler~ I hope you feel up to it, whatever it is.
~KK~ Hi, Bynw.
~Wrengl~ kathi is making me a mob cap (one of those colonial days ladies hats) to wear since i have to wear a hat
* Dov Quit (Connection reset by peer)
* Bynw was helping Tika make dinner
~Wrengl~ will do orientation is tomorrow evening
~KK~ Ah. I just got here about 5 min. ago.
~slobbit~ sounds like fun, Wrengl
~Wrengl~ it should be
* the_Bee stings peer up the wazoo "bad peer" bring dov back!
~Wrengl~ very casual dress - shorts, comfortable shoes, and the tee shirt they will be giving us at orientation
~jemler~ at least you didn't slap it with a fish! :)
~Wrengl~ and they have a dining tent and will provide us with water
~the_Bee~ thanks for reminding me , jemler
* the_Bee slaps DeryniBot around a bit with a large trout
* Dov re-joins and is welcomed back by everyone
~KK~ Ah. peer must be propitiatable by food! Either that, or he was fleeing the fish! I, too, had forgotten that fish were the preferred weapon for dealing with Peer.
~jemler~ she slapped me with that trout last week. It's a good thing I like fish!
~Wrengl~ or my indiana jones bullwhip
~jemler~ ooh , leather!
~RainbowDragon~ Bee's stings are quite formidable as well!
~the_Bee~ people were falling asleep. I had to wake them up somehow.
~jemler~ by slapping me sllier
~KK~ Sounds good to me.
~kelric~ mmm. food. I should make dinner
~Mistyck~ Katherine: When is the tentative release date for Childe Morgan?
~KK~ Early December.
~Mistyck~ neat! In time for Christmas ;)
~kelric~ woot. an early christmas present
~the_Bee~ It will be on my Christmas wishlist
~KK~ Yep. It might even be available at Darkover.
~Mistyck~ and hopefully available at Darkover...
~kelric~ darkover. with luck and not many term papers I might actually be able to make it to darkover this year
~jemler~ Mistyck is mind-seeing!
~Bynw~ darkover would be good
~KK~ Speaking of release dates, I do believe that the paperback of the latest Harry Potter comes out early in July. :-)
~Mistyck~ Katherine we are hoping that Kelric and RD can be there with all of us this year
~KK~ That would be great.
~Wrengl~ yes it would
~Wrengl~ and the pub is doing thanksgiving for any early arrivals who want to come and chip in for the dinner
~Mistyck~ yep yep Ryan and I will be there we'll be bringing food too
~Wrengl~ but the hostesses are shopping on wednesday this year when the store still has food
~kelric~ if I come I'll chip in
~Mistyck~ it's always a fun time at the Pub
~Wrengl~ i will post on the ng because we will need a number before we leave
~KK~ That sounds like a distinct possibility.
* natlog joins and is greeted by everyone
~natlog~ hi all
~Wrengl~ well last year tika, bynw, and ambush joined us and it was less expensive and better than most of the restaurants
~Mistyck~ Pat, we'll have to plan the menu in October
~Mistyck~ and I found another place that will sell me bulk samosas
~Wrengl~ we have decided to do a spiral cut ham for the pub again this year
~Mistyck~ so I will be bringing about 50 of those too oh good!
~Wrengl~ it worked better than any of the other things we've tried
~the_Bee~ you're making me hungry!
~Wrengl~ oh good mistyck, they were good
~Mistyck~ yes and I was reluctant to get some that weren't quite as good as the ones I'd brought
~Wrengl~ tee hee
~Mistyck~ but an Indian restaurant near work told me they'll make them for me and be ready to pick up the day prior to my leaving
~Mistyck~ they just want 3 days notice
~Mistyck~ and I think 50 is a good number...last time Martine took a few back with her
~the_Bee~ speaking of food: Dov, is kosher salt slaughtered according to prescribed rituals?
~Dov~ kosher salt is coarse salt, used to draw blood out of meat as part f the kosher process
~the_Bee~ ah. I'm reading a mystery that began with someone preparing gravlax salmon with kosher salt and sugar
~Dov~ lax (or lox) is somehow related to a persian word for "pink" also connected to a kind of dye known as "lake" and "shellac"
~the_Bee~ The novel is set in Texas
~Dov~ oops, you pushed my "vocabulary" button :-D
~RainbowDragon~ but quite interesting, Dov
~Mistyck~ very interesting
~the_Bee~ one of a series featuring Ruby the Rabbi's Wife (widow)
~Mistyck~ we're a quiet bunch today
~Dov~ fighting with an ornery printer
~RainbowDragon~ KK are you still with us?
~the_Bee~ We don't want to pester KK till she's done relocating
~KK~ I'm still here. But I'm fading fast.
~Mistyck~ got all your extra stuff packed?
~KK~ You must be joking.
~Dov~ how are the various quadrupeds?
~Mistyck~ yes I was I hate moving
~KK~ And what would constitute "extra stuff"?
~KK~ All the four-foots are fine.
~Mistyck~ all the stuff in the attic/closets/etc that we never use but have to somehow keep around
~RainbowDragon~ the non-auctionable stuff
~KK~ I've weeded out a great deal of that "stuff" in the past two years.
~Mistyck~ good for you!
~KK~ And we'll be selling a lot of the furniture rather than put it into storage.
~RainbowDragon~ that should simplify the packing tremendously
~Mistyck~ oh good!
~KK~ No, because books still need to be put into boxes. Furniture just goes into trucks.
~RainbowDragon~ how soon before the big move?
~KK~ Don't know.
~RainbowDragon~ ah, okay
~KK~ Possibly as soon as 4 weeks.
~the_Bee~ last time I moved I had to leave most of my stuff behind to keep the health department off my back
~Mistyck~ closing on the new place contingent on the closing of Hollybrooke?
~KK~ No, it's more complicated than that.
~Mistyck~ ahh ok
~KK~ As soon as I have the new (interim) address, I'll let you know.
~Dov~ think i'm going to sign out now. blessings and good health all around.
~the_Bee~ shalom dov
~Mistyck~ take care and be well Dov. Have a great evening
~KK~ Blessings to you as well. And I'm away as well.
*** Everyone bids Katherine farewell, goodnight and a happy week
~KK~ Will try to make it next week.
* Dov (Quit: Dov steps onto the Transfer Portal and vanishes )
~RainbowDragon~ Thanks for stopping by
~KK~ I have to get back on the repolish of High Deryni this week, now that Childe is back with the typesetters.
~RainbowDragon~ good news!
~KK~ All of you, take care. and Pat--feel better!
~Mistyck~ have a great night Katherine
* KK steps onto her Portal, waves good night, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles. (Quit )
