podlasianka1 (7:59:23 PM): I started with the stories
mahurin10 (7:59:35 PM): Hello Sobanme and tunnelmom
beatlegirls25 (7:59:45 PM): Hi Mary and Sobanme
mahurin10 (7:59:47 PM): Did you get some sleep?
tunnelmom (8:00:34 PM): The great hall is bigger than last year!  So many choices and I have just touched the surface
sobanme (8:00:45 PM): oh, me... sorry. Not enough, as you see.
tunnelbrat (8:00:46 PM): Everyone, don't forget to preface with the name of whom you are speaking to.  It helps those who are new to chat
mahurin10 (8:01:18 PM): Sorry I'm not too experience with chats
tunnelbrat (8:01:35 PM): mahurin.. no problem
mahurin10 (8:01:45 PM): I am hoping to get a microphone soon so I can talk.  I think that would be nice
tunnelmom (8:02:53 PM): So, where have you all been today?  The Library?  The Games?
mahurin10 (8:02:57 PM): I tried doing some of the other games, I have to say I am not very good at them,  but really enjoy doing them...especially the audio ones.  
tunnelbrat (8:03:01 PM): Mahurin... I brought mine home from school... Do you know if that "special program" allows recording... or just music files to be added?  I want to put a track of my students reading it.
mahurin10 (8:03:42 PM): Tunnelbrat...I think you can put recordings on it, so long as you have a line in to record it
sobanme (8:03:43 PM): I see the girl from Poland here? Hallo! What time is it over there?
tunnelbrat (8:04:08 PM): Tunnelmom: I could just spend all day refreshing the candles and reading  the messages there
podlasianka1 (8:04:19 PM): hello sobanme, it's after 3 a.m. here
mahurin10 (8:04:24 PM): Tunnelbrat...I would record it and maybe save it in a program then put it in the book.  I know the kids would love that.
tunnelmom (8:04:29 PM): So it's been a busy place!  That's good 
sobanme (8:04:32 PM): same as here in Italy, so
tunnelmom (8:04:37 PM): Of course it keeps you busy too
podlasianka1 (8:04:50 PM): how did you know I'm from Poland?
sobanme (8:05:06 PM): from your intro in the member list.
sobanme (8:05:24 PM): in what language did you watch B&B?
podlasianka1 (8:05:38 PM): in Polish
tunnelmom (8:05:39 PM): Sobanme has a memory like an elephant!
jecris27 (8:05:44 PM): :-)
beatlegirls25 (8:05:57 PM): Who else has done some captions?
podlasianka1 (8:05:58 PM): but it was so long time ago I hardly remember it
tunnelbrat (8:05:58 PM): Thank goodness someone has a good memory
mahurin10 (8:06:01 PM): Is there a place to record thoughts, ideas, impressions about WF other than the yahoo group.
mcwhorterstl (8:06:11 PM): sobanme & podlaskianka: you two are up at 3 am?
podlasianka1 (8:06:27 PM): yep
sobanme (8:06:32 PM): ach. you americans have those odd time zones...

mkateb50 (8:07:09 PM): hi everyone
beatlegirls25 (8:07:13 PM): kind of too bad it has to be so late for the overseas members

jecris27 (8:08:09 PM): we'll have one afternoon north america time tomorrow
jecris27 (8:08:13 PM): evening in europe
mahurin10 (8:08:22 PM): I was able to get off of work for a few hours so I could enjoy the chat...I am on call though, but it is much better to chat here than at work.  I'm not even sure if I could do it at work.
beatlegirls25 (8:08:26 PM): oh darn, will be out of town then
tunnelbrat (8:08:39 PM): there can be spontaneous chats at anytime... just get some ppl together in the same region :)
jecris27 (8:08:47 PM): yup
sobanme (8:08:49 PM): my impression, or there are maaaaany more candles this year -- only the first day?
mcwhorterstl (8:09:09 PM): soba: I was wondering if the map was carried over from last year's
mahurin10 (8:09:17 PM): Yes I noticed the candles are really growing
mahurin10 (8:09:31 PM): I think there are 81 in the yahoo group now
jecris27 (8:09:32 PM): i think you're right
havoc_cat (8:09:41 PM): The candles are all freshly lit
mcwhorterstl (8:09:50 PM): oh, cool!

mahurin10 (8:12:42 PM): Hi Claire
mkateb50 (8:12:44 PM): I saw that caption and it encouraged me to put one in too.  Claimed it came from Catherine.
tunnelmom (8:12:48 PM): Hi Claire
beatlegirls25 (8:12:53 PM): Hi claire
mahurin10 (8:13:06 PM): Mkate...good deal
podlasianka1 (8:13:07 PM): hi Claire
beatlegirls25 (8:13:09 PM): I put in captions for all of them, hope that was ok
mahurin10 (8:13:18 PM): Claire, hows the baby
cosi2cg (8:13:19 PM): hi, I was getting nervous
mkateb50 (8:13:20 PM): Hi Claire, it's cold here in Kansas. 
mahurin10 (8:13:28 PM): Beatle...the more the better
cosi2cg (8:13:44 PM): no one seemed to answer my calls
sobanme (8:14:03 PM): here is another one up at 3am, Ciao Claire.
cosi2cg (8:14:05 PM): the baby is fine... drinking again!
mahurin10 (8:14:22 PM): Claire did you find a copy of that pic that you were looking for?
cosi2cg (8:14:22 PM): the weather is quite warm here
tunnelmom (8:14:41 PM): Snowy here in Wisconsin.  Very pretty 
mahurin10 (8:15:02 PM): Does anyone know if CP will be able to join us this year. 
jecris27 (8:15:03 PM): no snow in minnesota! :-((
mkateb50 (8:15:06 PM): Everything here still has about an inch of ice on it.
jecris27 (8:15:18 PM): what's the point of winter without snow???
cosi2cg (8:15:19 PM): I could practically go out (during the day) in this central park t-shirt I'm wearing 
tunnelmom (8:15:27 PM): Sorry Jecris.  I will see what I can do for you. 
jecris27 (8:15:27 PM): wow
jecris27 (8:15:30 PM): lol
podlasianka1 (8:15:30 PM): no snow in Poland too :(
beatlegirls25 (8:15:31 PM): ?  I hate winter, especially ice and snow
mahurin10 (8:15:40 PM): I know last year she had problems and didn't get to do much
jecris27 (8:15:44 PM): i like snow. ice, no thank you.
cosi2cg (8:15:46 PM): no Deb, not in the 2 places you mentioned
sobanme (8:15:52 PM): I sent an eCard to CP. Are those eCards wonderful or what?
jecris27 (8:16:02 PM): fabulous!
mahurin10 (8:16:12 PM): It snowed here in south Louisiana on Christmas day
tunnelmom (8:16:16 PM): I sent some ecards also.  They are great!
mahurin10 (8:16:20 PM): Yes I love the ecards
beatlegirls25 (8:16:21 PM): Je, tell me what your idea of spiritual love is, I'm curious.
sobanme (8:16:28 PM): how many eCards have been sent, Jeff, do you know?
podlasianka1 (8:16:29 PM): I sent one to my friend
sobanme (8:16:45 PM): They are Jeff's idea and doing.
tunnelmom (8:17:06 PM): =D>
mahurin10 (8:17:21 PM): There are so many brilliant people here doing this project.  
mahurin10 (8:17:47 PM): I sent an ecard to both of my daughters. 
mkateb50 (8:18:12 PM): I second that Tunnelmom.
mahurin10 (8:18:15 PM): Of course they don't understand my "attraction" to BatB, but are supportive
tunnelbrat (8:18:29 PM): I am sending one out to my teachers ... they know my addiction
mahurin10 (8:18:40 PM): Can I make an announcement
mahurin10 (8:18:48 PM): OK If you insist
podlasianka1 (8:18:48 PM): mahurin, it's the same with my mom
tunnelmom (8:18:52 PM): I have one sister I share my addiction with.  
sobanme (8:19:18 PM): Ginny said that her husband does not understand B&B, but is being fascinated by the map with the candles. Keeps watching and updating it.
jecris27 (8:19:24 PM): i'm out of the closet re batb ;-)
beatlegirls25 (8:19:41 PM): ?
tunnelbrat (8:19:45 PM): I was never in the closet.. I started in the bathroom.
mahurin10 (8:19:49 PM): One of my Christmas gifts was that my daughter and her husband will present me with my first grandbaby in August....near my birthday.
jecris27 (8:19:54 PM): lol
havoc_cat (8:20:02 PM): around 74 ecards have sent.  A few of those might have been tests
mkateb50 (8:20:05 PM): Congrats grandma.
tunnelmom (8:20:09 PM): Congrats mahurin
tunnelbrat (8:20:15 PM): Yeah Mahurin
jecris27 (8:20:19 PM): congrats, deb!
sobanme (8:20:25 PM): another tunnel child. Almost.
tunnelmom (8:20:25 PM): That's a pretty good number Jeff
mahurin10 (8:20:30 PM): Thanks
sobanme (8:20:31 PM): 74??
sobanme (8:20:39 PM): wow.
tunnelbrat (8:20:52 PM): I love you ppl that collect stats. :)
beatlegirls25 (8:20:59 PM): Congrats Deb :)
sobanme (8:21:00 PM): and how many candles so far?
mahurin10 (8:21:05 PM): Will the ecards be available all through WF
sobanme (8:21:38 PM): podaslianka? is this your name or nick?
tunnelbrat (8:21:49 PM): Yes.. the ecards stay
podlasianka1 (8:22:00 PM): nick but not only
mahurin10 (8:22:03 PM): We might want to send some to people unable to attend that say something like "Wish you could have been here, maybe next year"  or something like that
cosi2cg (8:22:34 PM): I have only one regret concerning the e-cards (now that I've used them)... they don't show enough of Vincent !
havoc_cat (8:22:37 PM): 87 candles 
sobanme (8:22:41 PM): podlaetc, how did you get to know of Winterfest?
jecris27 (8:22:57 PM): lol
jecris27 (8:23:01 PM): agreed, claire
mahurin10 (8:23:09 PM): A project for next year...R rated ecards
jecris27 (8:23:11 PM): what happened to that more risque one?
podlasianka1 (8:23:29 PM): sobanme,I visit BATB websites regularely
tunnelmom (8:23:40 PM): Then you must visit the photomontage section and see Lynn W's submissions.  hehe
jecris27 (8:23:49 PM): hehe
mkateb50 (8:23:51 PM): JeCris that was some link in Catherine's section
mahurin10 (8:23:55 PM): OOOH, YEAHHH
tunnelbrat (8:24:08 PM): New ecards... another assignment for LynnW
cosi2cg (8:24:19 PM): no I'm serious because people who don't know the show well will recognize Vincent, not necessarily catch the meaning of a card with Linda Hamilton on it
mahurin10 (8:24:19 PM): And we begin again
tunnelmom (8:24:22 PM): LOL,  I am sure she would be obliging
tunnelbrat (8:24:44 PM): Sobi.. take notes
mkateb50 (8:24:47 PM): Wonder if we could make cards using some of the collages that were done this year
tunnelmom (8:24:50 PM): You might have a point Claire
sobanme (8:24:50 PM): mamma mia... 
sobanme (8:25:10 PM): collages?
mahurin10 (8:25:12 PM): sobi, I can see you holding your head now
cosi2cg (8:25:22 PM): sorry this occurred to me only yesterday
sobanme (8:25:35 PM): you have not yet seen what she really did...
sobanme (8:25:44 PM): what Lynn did, I mean.
sobanme (8:25:49 PM): be ready.
mahurin10 (8:25:53 PM): claire, good idea if we have the artists permission
mahurin10 (8:26:41 PM): I can see it now...an age declaration before you can open your ecard
jecris27 (8:27:29 PM): hehe
tunnelmom (8:27:33 PM): Warning.  Do not open if you suffer from high Blood pressure :D
sobanme (8:27:54 PM): B&B, the show of the romantic love... ha!
mahurin10 (8:28:02 PM): But seriously, we have some very talented artists and they do some really beautiful work.  
jecris27 (8:28:13 PM): nothing unromantic abou sex! come on now...
jecris27 (8:28:25 PM): of course, i suppose there could be....
sobanme (8:28:26 PM): So, what have you enjoyed more so far?
mkateb50 (8:28:50 PM): The candle messages
tunnelmom (8:29:03 PM): The map is always fabulous
tunnelmom (8:29:10 PM): and the messages
jecris27 (8:29:13 PM): the wintercandlemaker team :-)
podlasianka1 (8:29:16 PM): stories, I have never enough of them
sobanme (8:29:23 PM): You have seen that Rita Terrell was among the very first?
tunnelmom (8:29:33 PM): Yes!
tunnelbrat (8:29:37 PM): and PSNim added hers
sobanme (8:29:51 PM): PSnim? really? a candle?
tunnelbrat (8:29:57 PM): yep... 
tunnelbrat (8:30:02 PM): :)
sobanme (8:30:05 PM): oh, let me go and see...
jecris27 (8:30:10 PM): :-)
mkateb50 (8:30:11 PM): I agree Jecris...a great team
tunnelmom (8:30:16 PM): I am already on my way.  LOL
jecris27 (8:30:18 PM): it's been fun
mahurin10 (8:30:34 PM): I think I have enjoyed the art and the audio games the most so far,  but have only just now gotten into the fic
jecris27 (8:30:56 PM): i like the sound clips game
jecris27 (8:31:02 PM): and the last words one, but it's hard!
tunnelmom (8:31:26 PM): I like the games.  They're addicting!
jecris27 (8:31:37 PM): yeah, they are
mkateb50 (8:32:02 PM): Ahhhh, the fic...that will keep me up quite awhile tonight.
sobanme (8:32:08 PM): not with the PS nim name, Chan?
beatlegirls25 (8:32:20 PM): the messages are fabulous!  Everyone is terrific so far :)
jecris27 (8:32:33 PM): i saw PS Nim's name earlier
mkateb50 (8:32:52 PM): PS Nim was on one of the east coast states
cosi2cg (8:33:17 PM): I'm mesmerized by the candles, keep refreshing the text list, forget to play games 
jecris27 (8:33:19 PM): the candle messages seem to change order though, every time i look at them
tunnelbrat (8:33:31 PM): yes.. with the PSNIM name.... not her real name, lol... from NJ
cosi2cg (8:33:39 PM): yes I noticed the same thing J'E
beatlegirls25 (8:34:09 PM): one from Hellboy :d
beatlegirls25 (8:34:19 PM): and of course Father ;)
jecris27 (8:34:25 PM): there's a message in french! some invite her to dlt! lol
jecris27 (8:34:35 PM): oops - meant someone, not some
sobanme (8:35:19 PM): ach -- something wrong. I didn't see any PS nim, nor Hellboy.
sobanme (8:35:29 PM): and yes, I do hit refresh.
tunnelbrat (8:35:33 PM): Jeff... the candles seem to re-arrange themselves?  This time I see Nim's name next to yours
mkateb50 (8:35:55 PM): It's there.  I just saw it.
jecris27 (8:35:59 PM): try a search, sobi
jecris27 (8:36:05 PM): press ctrl-F and type in Nim
tunnelmom (8:36:12 PM): I found them both Sobanme
sobanme (8:36:17 PM): oh, yes, I've seen. Bear with me. 3.30AM here.
havoc_cat (8:36:35 PM): The candle messages are ordered by entry but the the first batch was only saving the date not the time so they may come out in different orders.
sobanme (8:37:10 PM): over 80 candles, and only the first day. 
cosi2cg (8:37:11 PM): the 2 French girls are already on DLT, sorry J'E
jecris27 (8:37:13 PM): suze is a doll! =D>
jecris27 (8:37:24 PM): she's sending 6 entries for talent show!

tunnelmom (8:45:14 PM): I first found CABB and tunnel tales.  I was in heaven!

mkateb50 (8:46:37 PM): and the paper, piles and piles of it
sobanme (8:46:45 PM): you have friend loving B&B in Poland?
tunnelmom (8:46:54 PM): I was afraid it would all disappear! 
cosi2cg (8:47:00 PM): I read non-stop (er between work hours) for a week and then subscribed to the y!groups
sobanme (8:47:01 PM): well, of course all recycled paper...
cosi2cg (8:47:16 PM): and continued reading.
tunnelbrat (8:47:18 PM): since i was before internet... I started pumping out art so I could get the zines... I could see I would be broke if I kept buying them
mahurin10 (8:47:33 PM): I know I still have that fear, that it will disappear, but save stuff to disc or CD now
podlasianka1 (8:47:37 PM): sobanme, you can say so, but she hardly remembers it
sobanme (8:47:58 PM): well, thank God for the internet, so?
podlasianka1 (8:48:06 PM): yep
jecris27 (8:48:09 PM): i'll drink to that!
cosi2cg (8:48:11 PM): ooh yes.
sobanme (8:48:14 PM): Isn't it great to find so many people as obsessed as yourself?
jecris27 (8:48:18 PM): speaking of which... where's Lynn?
tunnelbrat (8:48:27 PM): We gonna drink without lyn??
mahurin10 (8:48:42 PM): Yes b/c I would still be thinking I was the only one and I wouldn't have the wonderful friends that I have now either.
jecris27 (8:48:55 PM): agreed, deb
mahurin10 (8:49:09 PM): Let's all drink one (or two) for Lynn...
podlasianka1 (8:49:18 PM): does anybody knows any true Polish BATB fans?
mkateb50 (8:49:18 PM): It's comforting to know we're not alone in this obsession
sobanme (8:49:24 PM): If only my rl friends and family would know what I'm doing at 4am in the morning...
cosi2cg (8:49:33 PM): yes I think that's the main thing that made me stay
jecris27 (8:49:44 PM): you, Asia!
cosi2cg (8:50:09 PM): otherwise reason might have won. "what ? me in a fandom"? 
jecris27 (8:50:09 PM): what country is Sylvia Palumbiny in?
podlasianka1 (8:50:12 PM): only? :(
cosi2cg (8:50:13 PM): slovakia
tunnelbrat (8:50:16 PM): Asia, keep watching the candles.. maybe another will join in
mahurin10 (8:50:22 PM): When I went to San Francisco that was so nice.  To know that you were in a room full of people who understand and don't look at you like your're crazy.
sobanme (8:50:24 PM): I think I've seen another name. Or were it you? DId you sign Marina's guestbook?
podlasianka1 (8:50:40 PM): yes
sobanme (8:50:44 PM): ach.
cosi2cg (8:50:48 PM): like the girl (monika) who joined wfol2005 today
sobanme (8:50:55 PM): slovakia
sobanme (8:51:14 PM): Also Sylvia Palumbiny is from Sloviakia.
sobanme (8:51:35 PM): Je, how did you enjoy her art?
jecris27 (8:51:52 PM): beautiful!
almostretired03 (8:51:52 PM): Where is Monika from? Slovakia?
sobanme (8:52:00 PM): yes
sobanme (8:52:25 PM): I'm seeing a lot of non Americans this year. Many more than last year.
mahurin10 (8:52:33 PM): Do we have a count as to how many countries are represented?
almostretired03 (8:52:39 PM): Were there a lot of people in the chat earlier?
jecris27 (8:52:56 PM): nope, this is the most we've had gin

jecris27 (8:53:41 PM): I don't find Poland in the candle messages
mahurin10 (8:53:58 PM): Anabelle's videos are so good
cosi2cg (8:54:06 PM): oops I'll be away for a few minutes.
podlasianka1 (8:54:10 PM): you don't? it should be there
mahurin10 (8:54:17 PM): I want to try to do a video maybe for next year
almostretired03 (8:54:19 PM): I'm loving watching the candles spread across the map
havoc_cat (8:54:20 PM): Candles from 19 different countries
mcwhorterstl (8:54:21 PM): I haven't had a chance to get past the doors of the Great Hall
sobanme (8:54:28 PM): yaaa!

jecris27 (8:56:47 PM): didn't we have a powerpoint thing last year?
mahurin10 (8:56:49 PM): Anyway those were slideshows and I would like to be alble to do a video like Annabelle's or Gin's Vids
jecris27 (8:57:00 PM): with some kind of web extension, or some such?
mahurin10 (8:57:06 PM): je yes we did have one last year
tunnelbrat (8:57:11 PM):  Christine: When you get to the doors, the links are at the bottom ... they might be off your screen.
mahurin10 (8:57:36 PM): yes, I had to scroll down to see some things
mcwhorterstl (8:57:40 PM): tunnelbrat:  Oh, that's not the problem.  getting home & to the computer was the problem
tunnelbrat (8:57:49 PM): lol.. ok
jecris27 (8:57:52 PM): lol
havoc_cat (8:57:56 PM): Yes Powerpoint exports to the web.  The problem is syncing up the slides and music
mcwhorterstl (8:58:04 PM): working this weekend  :-(
jecris27 (8:58:20 PM): what does annik call her computer preventors? hyenas?
almostretired03 (8:58:30 PM): Aaaaaw
sobanme (8:58:44 PM): that's why we spread the festivities over two week ends 
mcwhorterstl (8:58:47 PM): dingoes?
sobanme (8:58:49 PM): as J'e suggested.
jecris27 (8:58:58 PM): lol
mahurin10 (8:59:00 PM): Poor Annik, she has had so many problems with her computer
jecris27 (8:59:07 PM): i know! major bummer
jecris27 (8:59:10 PM): bad timing
mcwhorterstl (8:59:30 PM): In the Buffyverse, we have dingoes
jecris27 (8:59:35 PM): lol
almostretired03 (8:59:41 PM): And I thought the hyenas were the kids trying to get to it
jecris27 (8:59:45 PM): they're australian, aren't they?
mcwhorterstl (8:59:51 PM): yes
jecris27 (8:59:53 PM): they are!
tunnelmom (9:00:23 PM): Enjoy the rest of the chat.  I have to run.  Be well all.
mcwhorterstl (9:00:31 PM): cu
jecris27 (9:00:33 PM): bye mary
almostretired03 (9:00:34 PM): Although there were moments when mine were young, dingoes would work.
jecris27 (9:00:39 PM): oh that was quick!
mkateb50 (9:00:40 PM): Night Mary
almostretired03 (9:00:51 PM): G'night Mary
podlasianka1 (9:01:07 PM): good night Mary
jecris27 (9:01:43 PM): do we want to post a transcript of this chat? (if we do, we need everyone to give permission.)
mahurin10 (9:02:01 PM): you have my permission
tunnelbrat (9:02:07 PM): and mine
podlasianka1 (9:02:09 PM): I agree
almostretired03 (9:02:11 PM): That's the chat archive?
mkateb50 (9:02:15 PM): Fine by me
havoc_cat (9:02:15 PM): Fine with me
mcwhorterstl (9:02:18 PM): For a moment, I couldn't remember why we called the computer gremlins dingoes, but now I do, but that's a different fandom.  Maybe we should blame computer mistakes & such on Arthur...
almostretired03 (9:02:20 PM): Me too
mcwhorterstl (9:02:25 PM): Ok by me
sobanme (9:02:28 PM): yes, of course
jecris27 (9:02:31 PM): ok
sobanme (9:03:03 PM): the computer gremlins have badly tried to sabotate Winterfest
tunnelbrat (9:03:06 PM): I think Arthur is a good bet
jecris27 (9:03:09 PM): lol
jecris27 (9:03:22 PM): yes, ginny, that's the chat archive
sobanme (9:03:28 PM): at one point, we were thinking that Paracelsus was behind all this.
mcwhorterstl (9:03:28 PM): they just were afraid they wouldn't be invited
almostretired03 (9:03:29 PM): I'm lookin' at Paracelsus
mcwhorterstl (9:03:52 PM): Ooh! Paracelsus!  Or his minions!
sobanme (9:04:03 PM): and perhaps he could still be.
podlasianka1 (9:04:19 PM): I don't like even this name
sobanme (9:04:24 PM): a cyber Paracelsus.
jecris27 (9:04:41 PM): lol
almostretired03 (9:04:49 PM): New virus?  Worm might be a better description.
sobanme (9:04:56 PM): here is Lynn!
jecris27 (9:05:01 PM): what's the reference to paracelsus? it's a literary one, isn't it?
mcwhorterstl (9:05:04 PM): podla: you don't like the name Paracelsus?  or minions?
jecris27 (9:05:32 PM): hi dear!

sobanme (9:14:29 PM): for the few non Wintercandlemakers here, Lynn and mkateb50 drew the maps, the magnified ones.
mahurin10 (9:14:52 PM): Great job
almostretired03 (9:15:00 PM): Well I guess you had a crash course in geography
mkateb50 (9:15:09 PM): Man countries have different names (and probably boundaries too) from when I took geography
jecris27 (9:15:12 PM): sounds like it was tedious work
jambolynn (9:15:13 PM): okay
mcwhorterstl (9:15:24 PM): They're beautiful

mcwhorterstl (9:18:40 PM): How's the sweetpea?
sobanme (9:18:45 PM): yes, so what?
jambolynn (9:18:48 PM): lol
jambolynn (9:19:00 PM): I actually say that too
sobanme (9:19:10 PM): back to the maps - Jeff, last year an Italian boy lit the candle from Sicily, and the candle was in Sicily.
jambolynn (9:19:13 PM): and I'm a bit partial to "porca vacca!"
sobanme (9:19:25 PM): This year the only Italian that signed is from Roma, and the candle is in Roma.
sobanme (9:19:34 PM): it is causal though, isn't it?
sobanme (9:19:38 PM): casual.
jecris27 (9:19:47 PM): no candle in bologna?
sobanme (9:20:03 PM): not yet. I like to be the last one.
sobanme (9:20:16 PM): So last that last year I almost forgot it.
jambolynn (9:20:17 PM): is that where spaghetti bolognese was born?
sobanme (9:20:34 PM): I lit my 2004 Winterfest candle in December.
jambolynn (9:20:48 PM): /:)
sobanme (9:20:48 PM): THERE IS NO THING LIKE SPAGHETTI BOLOGNESE!
jecris27 (9:20:56 PM): lol
jambolynn (9:20:58 PM): there isn't?
podlasianka1 (9:21:04 PM): no?
sobanme (9:21:09 PM): NO!
mcwhorterstl (9:21:12 PM): Soba: I'm cracking up, here!
jambolynn (9:21:14 PM): could have sworn I'd eaten it
sobanme (9:21:16 PM): spaghetti are NOT bolognese.
sobanme (9:21:27 PM): one thing is spaghetti,
jambolynn (9:21:33 PM): what's bolognese?
podlasianka1 (9:21:33 PM): but there is such name
sobanme (9:21:35 PM): one different thing is Bologna and bolognese.
sobanme (9:21:49 PM): oh, William, help me!
jambolynn (9:21:55 PM): lol
mcwhorterstl (9:21:55 PM): Give up, Soba.  
sobanme (9:22:11 PM): spaghetti is a common pasta here, very common
jecris27 (9:22:15 PM): lol
jambolynn (9:22:17 PM): Soba...is a type of noodle in Japan
jecris27 (9:22:21 PM): here too
sobanme (9:22:23 PM): but it is never dressed with a bolognese dressing.
mcwhorterstl (9:22:27 PM): Somehow, there are world traditions that trample all over other traditions
jambolynn (9:22:51 PM): what does bolognese dressing get used for?
jambolynn (9:22:55 PM): salads?
jambolynn (9:23:30 PM): what's the best spaghetti?
sobanme (9:23:33 PM): sorry, I used "dressing" because ata this time of the night I can't remember the English word for the thing that goes over the pasta to make it tasty.
cosi2cg (9:23:37 PM): it took me a moment to catch up with the messages. yes Christina, the little one is fine, with a good appetite :-)   and what did I miss... Hi Lynn, and could we please have another round of AYEs :)
jambolynn (9:23:45 PM): pasta sauce?
sobanme (9:24:00 PM): I don't know. we call it Ragù.
jecris27 (9:24:02 PM): lol
jambolynn (9:24:04 PM): ah
jecris27 (9:24:06 PM): aye1
sobanme (9:24:09 PM): aye2
cosi2cg (9:24:18 PM): aye! 
mcwhorterstl (9:24:19 PM): Ragu = sauc
almostretired03 (9:24:21 PM): aye3
jambolynn (9:24:22 PM): aye
podlasianka1 (9:24:24 PM): AYE
mcwhorterstl (9:24:27 PM): eye
mkateb50 (9:24:30 PM): aye
mkateb50 (9:24:51 PM): Somebody wake up Annette
mcwhorterstl (9:24:53 PM): and in America, sauce does NOT  = salsa
tunnelbrat (9:24:54 PM): I am working with Clare S. trying to get her through downloading YM... what are we AYE'ing?
jambolynn (9:24:54 PM): so, carbonara, would also be known as a ragu?
cosi2cg (9:24:58 PM): it's funny, it sounds like the French "ragout" (I'll spare you the circumflex accent) which is... stew.
beatlegirls25 (9:24:59 PM): on long distance
mkateb50 (9:25:15 PM): Sorry I forgot
mcwhorterstl (9:25:18 PM): actually, I think they have similar roots

almostretired03 (10:15:20 PM): Goodnight Jeff
tunnelbrat (10:15:31 PM): dancing water
tunnelbrat (10:15:45 PM): BRB= Be right back
jambolynn (10:15:53 PM): I must have missed it
mkateb50 (10:15:59 PM): Night Jeff, sleep well
almostretired03 (10:16:07 PM): Oh Br right back. Yep. It's time to sleep.
tunnelbrat (10:16:10 PM): it evidently breaks down alot.
jambolynn (10:16:30 PM): maybe it wasn't working at the time
jambolynn (10:16:37 PM): probably that was it
almostretired03 (10:16:38 PM): Sheesh. Not only can't I remember it. I can't even spell it.
tunnelbrat (10:16:44 PM): I am going to update the great hall with what I have.... I am sure Sobi will have a ton of thing i missed. :)
jecris27 (10:17:04 PM): lol
jecris27 (10:17:12 PM): no doubt. she's pretty thorough
tunnelbrat (10:17:24 PM): and I need her to be :)
jecris27 (10:17:32 PM): yes, it's good :-)
jambolynn (10:18:14 PM): Mary? are you awake?
jecris27 (10:18:21 PM): Shall we break up this party?
mkateb50 (10:18:21 PM): Sure
mkateb50 (10:18:32 PM): Sure I'm awake
jambolynn (10:18:33 PM): Mary!
jambolynn (10:18:35 PM): lol
tunnelbrat (10:18:40 PM):  at the convention where Koslow picked one of my pieces of art... i was flying so hi.. I drew a pic/cartoon of me flying and JoAnn Grant holding on to my string like a balloon.. she kept track of me at that one
jecris27 (10:18:44 PM): tunnelmom is gone, dear, if that's the mary you're looking for
jambolynn (10:18:48 PM): I was wondering who that id was! LOLO
jambolynn (10:19:07 PM): ah
jecris27 (10:19:15 PM): cool!
mkateb50 (10:19:17 PM): It's my secret identity
jambolynn (10:19:20 PM): lol
mkateb50 (10:19:59 PM): Did Koslow buy it?
tunnelbrat (10:20:18 PM): hell no.. i pulled it from the auction and GAVE it to the man
jecris27 (10:20:44 PM): :-)
jambolynn (10:20:48 PM): what was it?
mkateb50 (10:20:52 PM): Way to go
jambolynn (10:21:02 PM): sculpture? pic?
tunnelbrat (10:21:10 PM): We sent it to him... i heard about it after the fact
jambolynn (10:21:12 PM): or something else?
tunnelbrat (10:21:17 PM): from the artroom director
tunnelbrat (10:21:27 PM): I have a nice thank you from him.
tunnelbrat (10:21:32 PM): that was the worst time of my life
jecris27 (10:22:03 PM): why the worst?
jambolynn (10:22:05 PM): you are a woman of many talents, and master of them all!
tunnelbrat (10:22:20 PM): pic... pilot... where V was helping C jump the pipe in the tunnel "You can do it"
jambolynn (10:22:28 PM): ah
tunnelbrat (10:22:41 PM): worst.. because I was emotionally bombarded all weekend...sick as a dog
tunnelbrat (10:23:04 PM): that and the wild lights of the casino, the smoke and my blooming headache. :)
tunnelbrat (10:23:12 PM): and i wasn't drinking
jecris27 (10:23:37 PM): goodness. does sound intense
tunnelbrat (10:24:01 PM): PSNim bought one of my pieces in auction... Koslow liked my work... I had 5 pieces go to auction... this in a year after my first convention
tunnelbrat (10:24:29 PM): too much too fast... bowled me over.
jecris27 (10:24:35 PM): ahh
jecris27 (10:24:52 PM): what year? was the show still on?
tunnelbrat (10:25:11 PM): um.. no.. it was the third convention... Las Vegas
tunnelbrat (10:25:20 PM): um.... 92 maybe?
jecris27 (10:25:26 PM): ok
jecris27 (10:25:54 PM): the 3s unplesantness still pretty new then
almostretired03 (10:26:05 PM): Sounds successful, even if intense. 
jambolynn (10:26:18 PM): I can't stand smoke filled rooms
jecris27 (10:26:19 PM): yeah
tunnelbrat (10:26:24 PM): just the year before i was grabbing people and hanging on as they walked by... trying to find my group... yes.. the 3S was the big reason i leaped into fandom
jecris27 (10:26:51 PM): yeah, it needed fixing all right
tunnelbrat (10:26:59 PM): exactly
tunnelbrat (10:27:15 PM): actually 3S was a sort of blessing in a weird way
tunnelbrat (10:27:31 PM): do you think as many of us would be here if not for the need of resolution?
jecris27 (10:27:35 PM): nope
jecris27 (10:27:36 PM): i agree
almostretired03 (10:27:43 PM): We probably wouldn't all be her if we weren't still trying to fix it.
jambolynn (10:27:45 PM): I agree with that
jecris27 (10:27:50 PM): kinda of a painful blessing though!
tunnelbrat (10:27:58 PM): yes.. very painful
jambolynn (10:28:24 PM): it was awful
dilliedallie27 (10:28:39 PM): No matter how painful it was, it's you that helps us "younger" fans find the way.  :)
jecris27 (10:28:39 PM): yeah
tunnelbrat (10:28:56 PM): I have never had anything hit me so hard, so intently
tunnelbrat (10:29:15 PM): intensely?... shoot can't spell either
tunnelbrat (10:29:45 PM): still not a day goes by that isn't filled with the show
dilliedallie27 (10:30:03 PM): I know how that is.
jambolynn (10:30:07 PM): I don't knw why they couldn't have just given us a happy ending at the end of the 2nd season
almostretired03 (10:30:07 PM): I'm impressed that younger fans can still find it. I can't find it anywhere on TV anymore.
jecris27 (10:30:39 PM): i wish it would come on dvd
jambolynn (10:30:51 PM): but as you said about 3s...
dilliedallie27 (10:30:59 PM): I was a fan since I was 12.  I just bought my first computer a couple years ago, and BatB was the very first search I did. :)
dilliedallie27 (10:31:18 PM): That's how I happened to come across it.
almostretired03 (10:31:34 PM): I think they had convinced themselves they could change the show that much and not make so many people as hurt and angry as they did.
almostretired03 (10:32:01 PM): Somebody said the same thing earlier Angela
jecris27 (10:32:26 PM): well i think... $-)
jecris27 (10:32:37 PM): had their priorities messed up
jambolynn (10:32:39 PM): lol
almostretired03 (10:32:46 PM): Me, too.
tunnelbrat (10:32:55 PM): I see alot of ppl on diviant art saying "I loved that show"... when they were 10 or so
jecris27 (10:32:58 PM): they created something larger than themselves
jecris27 (10:33:06 PM): and then went and ruined it
tunnelbrat (10:33:07 PM): i sent a few invitations to some
tunnelbrat (10:33:55 PM): I'm sure they thought they were trying to save it.  I can't blame them... but it sure didn't work.
mkateb50 (10:33:55 PM): So what is it that keeps us here, gets into our blood and won't let go
dilliedallie27 (10:34:30 PM): I know with me, it's the acceptance.
jambolynn (10:34:37 PM): It's "special" Mary
tunnelbrat (10:34:38 PM): My theory is that it hit only the ones that needed it in some way... it "spoke" to only certain ones
mkateb50 (10:34:50 PM): YES
jecris27 (10:34:53 PM): it's the relationship between them.. against all odds, yadda yadda
almostretired03 (10:35:03 PM): That's it.
podlasianka1 (10:35:06 PM): it definitly "spoke" to me
jecris27 (10:35:10 PM): definitely
jecris27 (10:35:15 PM): deeply
podlasianka1 (10:35:39 PM): made to change sth in life
jecris27 (10:35:52 PM): yes
mkateb50 (10:36:05 PM): And look what we have now...friendships that we never could have imagined, that go far beyond the show.
jecris27 (10:36:17 PM): indeed
tunnelbrat (10:36:19 PM): the great hall is updated http://www.beautyandthebeast-tv.com/winterfest/greathall/
tunnelbrat (10:36:34 PM): I had never taken art seriously
mkateb50 (10:37:00 PM): Why?
tunnelbrat (10:37:14 PM): but i *had* to draw  (which i did in the bathroom... hence, no coming out of the closet.. unless it was the water closet....mmmm?)
jambolynn (10:37:22 PM): I'd never written saucy poetry before
jambolynn (10:37:24 PM): in fact
jambolynn (10:37:34 PM): I'd never written *anything* before
jecris27 (10:37:44 PM): i'd never really written before either
dilliedallie27 (10:37:57 PM): Same here, I'm still struggling with it, but it's coming along. :)
jecris27 (10:37:57 PM): apart from work things, of course
almostretired03 (10:37:58 PM): The tunnels even echoed that against all odds feeling. The third season killed the hope that came with the relationship. 
jecris27 (10:38:09 PM): yeah :-(
dilliedallie27 (10:38:11 PM): writing that is.  :)
almostretired03 (10:38:30 PM): I'd never written anything before, either. Had no idea I could.
tunnelbrat (10:38:32 PM): why not seriously?  Because it was just a thing i could do: bulletin boards, church banners... Yawn.  Nothing that I wanted to do
mkateb50 (10:39:03 PM): So, it gave you a safe place to explore your talents, your desires?
jecris27 (10:39:08 PM): an unvalued gift?
podlasianka1 (10:39:10 PM): I never before thought I fould find books so interesting as now
tunnelbrat (10:39:26 PM): an unvalued gift, big time
jecris27 (10:39:45 PM): and batb gave it value
tunnelbrat (10:40:00 PM): no.. it gave me pain
tunnelbrat (10:40:12 PM): THEN it gave me value
jecris27 (10:40:12 PM): damn
almostretired03 (10:40:30 PM): And more confidence?
tunnelbrat (10:40:30 PM): all my pictures at first were gloom
jecris27 (10:40:34 PM): well, good end result then
tunnelbrat (10:40:45 PM): yes.. it lead to the job i have no.. and a very different me
jecris27 (10:40:54 PM): fascinating
tunnelbrat (10:40:54 PM): one that scared my hubby for a while
jecris27 (10:41:02 PM): change can be hard
mkateb50 (10:41:07 PM): and scary
jecris27 (10:41:11 PM): yeah
tunnelbrat (10:41:11 PM): confident... might not need him any more
jecris27 (10:41:44 PM): the show that changes lives...
tunnelbrat (10:41:56 PM): I would NEVER have jumped on a plane alone to go to a place where I knew no one
mkateb50 (10:42:15 PM): I hear that
jecris27 (10:42:43 PM): been there, done that too. except i'd met people online before.
jambolynn (10:42:48 PM): I don't think I would have either
jecris27 (10:42:49 PM): still, kinda scary
tunnelbrat (10:43:08 PM): and I came back knowing i would go to every one as long as they were going on
mkateb50 (10:43:11 PM): I wanted to go to New York so much.  My first con.  Talked my sister into going with me.  And I was 50 year old.
jecris27 (10:43:28 PM): :-) sigh
tunnelbrat (10:44:00 PM): I fell in love with NYC
mkateb50 (10:44:08 PM): Me too.
almostretired03 (10:44:12 PM): If there's one in 2007 I expect to meet all your smiling faces there.
dilliedallie27 (10:44:18 PM): I was going to go to San. Fran. had everything ready to go (including the suitcase packed 2 months in advance. LOL), but it didn't work you.  
mkateb50 (10:44:21 PM): Definitely
mkateb50 (10:44:26 PM): We missed you so.
tunnelbrat (10:44:42 PM): hey... I ran back there as soon as i got bumped and had a free flight this summer
mkateb50 (10:44:53 PM): Hoped you would have been able to make Kansas City
mkateb50 (10:45:39 PM): My niece lives and works in New York.  I keep telling her --- someday
tunnelbrat (10:45:59 PM): I have learned  to make it sooner than someday
dilliedallie27 (10:46:02 PM): The only problem is, we fill out our vacation papers in Feb. for the next year.  Then we don't know until March/April if we get the weeks we wanted.  It's really hard to plan. 
tunnelbrat (10:46:51 PM): Thank goodness Aurea is there and I have a place to "land"
jambolynn (10:47:02 PM): he he
mkateb50 (10:47:02 PM): How is she doing?
tunnelbrat (10:47:34 PM): in pain... constantly
tunnelbrat (10:47:56 PM): falls alot
jecris27 (10:48:26 PM): oh no
tunnelbrat (10:48:27 PM): but she is a hoot... keeps right on going.
jecris27 (10:48:37 PM): full of fire, that one
tunnelbrat (10:48:43 PM): wraps up from head to toe in braces and off she goes
mkateb50 (10:48:54 PM): Tough as nails
tunnelbrat (10:48:56 PM): watch that walker in a crowd
tunnelbrat (10:49:36 PM): for sure
mkateb50 (10:50:08 PM): Is anyone planning on going on the Vermont Vacation this summer?
tunnelbrat (10:50:18 PM): I sure hope i am going
almostretired03 (10:50:28 PM): Is that B&B related?
mkateb50 (10:50:30 PM): Yes
mkateb50 (10:50:38 PM): Replaces the convention
tunnelbrat (10:50:40 PM): don't have a free ticket now (lol) and i am retiring, so money will be tight
jambolynn (10:50:46 PM): unfortunately, I'll be in  Scotland
mkateb50 (10:51:05 PM): Maybe we'll just keep on going across the water
jambolynn (10:51:18 PM): yes!
mkateb50 (10:51:36 PM): Wouldn't that be a hoot?  Touring Scotland with you!
jambolynn (10:51:41 PM): lol
tunnelbrat (10:51:56 PM): I would love it
jecris27 (10:52:06 PM): one day...
jambolynn (10:52:16 PM): yes
mkateb50 (10:52:31 PM): I'm thinking we meet in the midwest and take a bus back east.
almostretired03 (10:52:38 PM): I retired at 55. That and the year 2000 seemed like two nice round numbers calling to one another.  Congratulations. You're gonna love it!  :)
jambolynn (10:52:41 PM): hire a mini bus, and off we go...B&B ing(bed & breakfast)
mkateb50 (10:52:58 PM): Laughing all the way
jambolynn (10:53:03 PM): lol
tunnelbrat (10:53:43 PM): I had our tech admin come in Thursday... kept trying to get me to change my mind
mkateb50 (10:53:55 PM): How many days in a row can you call in sick, Angela?
jecris27 (10:53:59 PM): lol
jambolynn (10:54:16 PM): I hate to think what that school will do without you Chan
mkateb50 (10:54:26 PM): And they know it too.
dilliedallie27 (10:54:37 PM): we only get 9 days a year to call in.  Any more than that and I'm fired.  They're really strick about that.
tunnelbrat (10:54:49 PM): Je... could you move the link to the dealer's room up to the top?  Just a suggestion.  That's a long scroll to the bottom of the page.
jambolynn (10:54:54 PM): well you onlt need 4! lol
jecris27 (10:54:56 PM): sure
mkateb50 (10:55:10 PM): Well then stay well till July
dilliedallie27 (10:55:18 PM): That's very tempting.  
dilliedallie27 (10:55:53 PM): However, with the weather we've had these last few days. I'll be using them up before spring.  
dilliedallie27 (10:56:17 PM): 2 inches of ice, and 4 inches of snow to boot.  
dilliedallie27 (10:56:26 PM): YUCK.
mkateb50 (10:56:51 PM): Okay, then we'll stop by on our way through Indiana (right?) and you can be our very own BATB B&B.
tunnelbrat (10:56:58 PM): did you see the change to the great hall?  I moved Corinne's first day wallpaper to the front :)
dilliedallie27 (10:57:05 PM): There's alot of towns around here out of power.  Luckily we've only lost elec. for only 6 hours.
dilliedallie27 (10:57:25 PM): My house is small, and there's nothing here. LOL.
jecris27 (10:57:31 PM): yup. gorgeous!
almostretired03 (10:57:49 PM): I'm loving this, but you're about to see some strange stuff on the screen from  where I fall asleep face down on the keyboard. I'm gonna go and save you from that.
almostretired03 (10:58:00 PM): See you tomorrow.
tunnelbrat (10:58:02 PM): hey yeah... that snowstorm was supposed to get me out of school on Friday and it went too far south!  
jecris27 (10:58:31 PM): night Ginny
mkateb50 (10:58:32 PM): Night Ginny
dilliedallie27 (10:58:40 PM): We have tooo much. Power is out in a 50 mile radius.
jambolynn (10:58:43 PM): Oh that's fabulous!
tunnelbrat (10:58:43 PM): we know chat addicts by the brand on their foreheads
jecris27 (10:58:54 PM): lol
jambolynn (10:59:12 PM): rofl!
mkateb50 (10:59:30 PM): l;sdfkjdsjf;asldjf
jambolynn (10:59:35 PM): lol
mkateb50 (10:59:35 PM): That's the brand
jecris27 (10:59:40 PM): ;-)
dilliedallie27 (10:59:42 PM): There's some towns that have been told to prepare for a week without power. I feel for them.
dilliedallie27 (10:59:45 PM): LOL
tunnelbrat (10:59:49 PM): yep... i recognize it from my 5 years on irc
jambolynn (11:00:14 PM): Chat addicts? here?
mkateb50 (11:00:20 PM): We've had that kind of weather here with ice but little snow.  Nothing to cushion the fall.
tunnelbrat (11:00:22 PM): <---chat burnout victim
mkateb50 (11:00:37 PM): <--- Chat newbie
dilliedallie27 (11:00:40 PM): the snow came 3 days after the ice.
jambolynn (11:01:24 PM): <---every day chatter
jecris27 (11:01:35 PM): dealer page is updated
mkateb50 (11:01:36 PM): These are the times when I'm thankful that I'm not, nor am I married to, an electric company lineman.
jambolynn (11:01:36 PM): is chatter a word?
tunnelbrat (11:01:37 PM): beware... when you set sound  functions to tell you when ppl come into your chatroom in case you miss someone when you run to the bathroom... you have a problem
mkateb50 (11:02:11 PM): Chatter is a word....now
dilliedallie27 (11:02:18 PM): LOL
jambolynn (11:02:19 PM): he he
jecris27 (11:02:21 PM): hehe
mkateb50 (11:02:25 PM): You may be a chatter if....
jecris27 (11:02:40 PM): course it's a word, you just invented a new definition for it ;-)
tunnelbrat (11:02:45 PM): I used to have up to 7 windows open on the side as well as the main room.... now i can't concentrate on one
jambolynn (11:02:54 PM): lol
tunnelbrat (11:03:12 PM): i thin you are a chatterer
tunnelbrat (11:03:23 PM): i even think it
jambolynn (11:03:30 PM): that's it! lol
mkateb50 (11:03:43 PM): I was hoping that was a new way to loose weight
tunnelbrat (11:03:51 PM): don't i wish
mkateb50 (11:04:09 PM): Chatter  Chatter   Chatter   and the pounds just fall off
jambolynn (11:04:28 PM): I'd be invisible
mkateb50 (11:04:42 PM): It's too bad it keeps fingers busy instead of mouth.  I sat here and ate apple pie with ice cream earlier
mkateb50 (11:05:00 PM): But we'd still hear you
jecris27 (11:05:01 PM): lol
tunnelbrat (11:05:09 PM): I polished off a can of peanuts
mkateb50 (11:05:19 PM): Oh that sounds good
jambolynn (11:05:58 PM): I7m drinking gallons of water and moogi cha(japanese tea) 
tunnelbrat (11:06:10 PM): i wish i could remember the other change i was supposed to do.... or where i put my notes
tunnelbrat (11:06:23 PM): oh... i rememmber on
tunnelbrat (11:06:24 PM): one
jecris27 (11:06:29 PM): something about guest authors and artists maybe?
tunnelbrat (11:06:42 PM): yeah.. the first one
tunnelbrat (11:07:46 PM): sobi is going to like the way the great hall looks with that wallpaper :)
jecris27 (11:08:01 PM): yes, i think so!
jambolynn (11:08:02 PM): yes, I think she is
mkateb50 (11:08:08 PM): I like the wall paper at the Great Hall.  I've had it on my computer since she first sent it.  Everyone at work comments how great it is.
jecris27 (11:08:29 PM): and so crisp!
jecris27 (11:08:33 PM): such a treat!
tunnelbrat (11:08:38 PM): yes
tunnelbrat (11:08:52 PM): we have a treasure in that gal
jambolynn (11:08:58 PM): yes, it's very clear andfresh looking
mkateb50 (11:09:06 PM): Now wouldn't that make a great e-card to invite someone to Winterfest?
jecris27 (11:09:17 PM): oh yeah!
tunnelbrat (11:09:21 PM): yes
jecris27 (11:09:22 PM): and she just seems to crank em out too!
jecris27 (11:09:36 PM): i'm impressed
tunnelbrat (11:09:44 PM): perhaps we should ask if the unveiled ones can be used for that
jambolynn (11:10:16 PM): how's the candle map looking?
jecris27 (11:10:18 PM): lovely idea
jambolynn (11:10:23 PM): I need to go squint
tunnelbrat (11:10:39 PM): you need to what?
mkateb50 (11:10:43 PM): Is that Scottish for something?
jecris27 (11:10:44 PM): lol
jecris27 (11:10:51 PM): she's going to look at the candle map

ticklesivory (11:20:10 PM): And we appreciate that. 
jecris27 (11:20:12 PM): except.. we hear there may be some who would prefer all 3s questions, and no first and second season epis

ticklesivory (11:26:32 PM): How far ahead are conventions planned anyway?  Reminds me of the Olympics! 
jecris27 (11:26:52 PM): usually not this many at once, at least these last few years
jecris27 (11:27:13 PM): there's vermont this summer, but it's not an official "convention"
mkateb50 (11:27:18 PM): Usually 2 years, but there is talk of that one because it would be teh 20th anniversary
