Plantagenet: <bows> james: <bows> in return. i was given the impression you'd not be amongst us this evening Pamela: my we're feeling courtly tonite, good doctor Plantagenet: Indeed, milady.

Plantagenet: Yea, milady Rin? james: lol. literature has never been my strong suit Wit'ch: i don't understand the name Plantagenet: If your suit be strong, perhaps it wants washing. Plantagenet: Richard Plantagenet was the name of either one of the English kings, or a plotter to be an English king. Plantagenet: Since my name is also Richard... james: i'm woefully ignorant Wit'ch: ok Plantagenet: a feeble jest. Pamela: nay, not so feeble my lord Wit'ch: *shrug* Plantagenet: I also used 'Plantagenet' as a character name in an online MUD that I used to frequent lo these many years ago. rich-c: if I recall, both Richards were Plantagenets Plantagenet: That's what I'm thinking, Richard. Pamela: but only those who are longstanding of the court may be aware Wit'ch: ahhh yes....those festivals Wit'ch: ok rich-c: just watch out if any Tudors join the group - they have ambitions Plantagenet: If it would please ye better, I can revert to a more usual moniker.

Pamela: oh, look who's awake james: / x jbgv , Wit'ch: :-) Dr.D.: Not sure SCA would agree with me. james: certainly not me Pamela: g'morning Case rich-c: hello, Case james: he says something along those lines back, pam :) james: nnhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhn Pamela: and why not, good doctor? Dr.D.: My friends who went SCA (and stayed SCA, I will qualify that) went off the deep end of mediaevalism. rich-c: two bubbles and a drool? ;-) james: ,mmm n james: not quite that bad :P Dr.D.: The past looks too good to them, so they never come out of it. james: b b6b Dr.D.: I understand the sentiment...am tempted by it...could see myself perhaps getting stuck there, too... Pamela: you don't have to be an authenticity maven to enjoy the occasional event Rich rich-c: by the way, Rich, have you seen the latest Christmas toy? George: my mind is going Dr.D.: I can feel it, Dave. Dr.D.: Daisy...daisy... Dr.D.: No, what's the latest Xmas toy? George: HUH?

Dr.D.: Only if they don't make n jillion of them. Dr.D.: Oops, typo... Dr.D.: "bumpkin" is better than "pumpkin", nice addition, Pam. rich-c: over that time period, even a jillion gets cut back real far
moved to room Meeting Place james: my brother got me one of those useless kung fu hamsters a couple years. my response was "great. where do i keep this piece of crap" George: SQUIRT, SQUIRT, SQUIRT, james: i know, sounds callous considering it was a gift

Dr.D.: I had it with his nonsense tonight. Pamela: you beat me to it Rich Dr.D.: He can play with his Foley bag off-line. Dr.D.: I know he's had a rough time, but goodness sakes, if he can't be nice here, he ought stay away. Pamela: Hey Rin, I found those two pictures Dr.D.: Grrr. rich-c: thought you had to have administrator rights to bounce someone
Ooops changed username to Rin Dr.D.: No, I think it's simple vote. Rin: cool Dr.D.: Same as bouncing a Ghost. Pamela: I think we should scan them and send them to Rich, what do you think? Dr.D.: Not sure how long (if any length) the ban lasts. Dr.D.: What are these? Rin: sure....i was hot then Dr.D.: Oooh, cheesecake shots of Rin and Pam?!?!? Pamela: I found her biker babe photos Pamela: just Rin, Rich Dr.D.: Cheesecake is cheesecake... james: lol rich-c: where will you get them scanned, Pam? Dr.D.: Just so she doesn't have a Harley tattoo across her back. Rin: no none of these Pamela: Oh, I was thinking of making a short visit to you Dad Rin: but 4 others Dr.D.: 4 tattoos? rich-c: OK, I am beginning to learn a few things about photo editing now Rin: yup Dr.D.: Heheh, then you can give Rin a Harley tattoo, Richard :-) Pamela: nowhere to put it in the pictures Rich Dr.D.: With Photoshop, all things are possible. rich-c: right - I actually have a carton of Harley-Davidson cigarettes, so I can pick up the logo Dr.D.: Body in wrong pose, get another body and paste it in :-) james: i'm afraid i have to cut things short this morning. case and i woke up late (glad he slept in since i didn't sleep till 2) and i'm running behind Pamela: should I ask why you have a carton of Harley smokes Dad? Dr.D.: A colleague updated his webpage photo of his lab group by pasting in a new student in the back of the old photo. james: lol Dr.D.: It was easier than getting the whole gang together for another photo shoot. rich-c: take it easy, james, then, and see you Pamela: James you're perpetually running behind Pamela: hugs to you all and a hi to Miyuki Dr.D.: Dare I ask what your tattoos are, Rin? Are they "decent"? james: i did that to my boss. we'd scanned a picture of this group from this town from about 70 years ago and i took his photo, greyscaled it rich-c: and Pam - it's very old - Harley had second thoughts and pulled the licence agreement Rin: they are all decent james: and added him in. i said "see, there you are. you *are* old" Dr.D.: Lots of women on campus seem to have something in the small of their backs. Rin: I have a red maple leaf on my back btw my shoulder blades Pamela: talk about collectors items, Dad! Dr.D.: Lots of bare midriffs and hip-hugger jeans in style now, so you can't help but see them. rich-c: I suspect that as a curiosity they have quite some collector value - they're far too old to smoke, of course james: dr. d won't tell us where he's seen the other tatoos Rin: I have half of a ying yang symbol on my lower left side (back)......the white side that says "bubbles" Dr.D.: Ankle tattoos are common among the CWRU women, also. Rin: I have a treble clef on my left ankle james: he heh heh. anyway, will see you all next week. bye! Dr.D.: Bye James. rich-c: c u james Pamela: night James Rin: and a compass on the left side of my upper abdomen james: *poof*
james left chat session Dr.D.: Any special significance to these (other than the obvious maple leaf)? Rin: yes rich-c: geez, all I can muster is a couple of surgical scars Dr.D.: Guy tattoos that I see on campus are stock "guy" things: girlfriend name, Marine Corps insignia, etc. Pamela: and about to add another : ) Dr.D.: I have an inadvertent tattoo in my left palm: Pamela: inadvertent? rich-c: from reaching for something too hot? Dr.D.: About 1985 I reached for a notebook on a computer desk. Dr.D.: There was a pencil sticking out of it. Dr.D.: My palm hit the pencil, and jammed the notebook up against the IBM PC XT on the table. Pamela: OUCH! Dr.D.: The pencil point went in and left a graphite scar. Rin: i have one of them too Dr.D.: It's still there, though fainter now. Pamela: me too - dates back to grade school rich-c: teachy you not to sharpen your pencils to so fine a point! Dr.D.: That's the poorman's self-tattoo method, too. Pamela: I'll pass thanks - I'm not into pain Dr.D.: I see lots of "lower class" women who have tattooed their forearms like that, with a boyfriend's name, or some gang insignia. Dr.D.: Maybe half the black checkout girls at the local supermarket. Dr.D.: Cultural thing. rich-c: tattooing is a temporary fad that will soon fade away, leaving only a large number of regrets Dr.D.: Me, tattoos and piercings, earrings etc. are icky. Rin: *shrug* Dr.D.: If adults choose to do it, okay I guess. Dr.D.: I don't like seeing it done to little kids and babies. Pamela: pierced ears was as far as I got Rin: i had my belly button done...but i got rid of it Dr.D.: Christina got her ears pierced when she was 13 I think. Dr.D.: None of the other girls shows any interest in it. Dr.D.: Joan has unpierced ears. Dr.D.: YMMV. Pamela: tattoos have never been my favourite form of decoration for guys but then they are seldom as tasteful as the ones girls choose Rin: i've got 4 in one ear and three in the other rich-c: Frances has never had her ears pierced either, thoough she's an earring fanatic Pamela: Mom made me wait till I was 14 to get mine done Dr.D.: I think a guy with a tasteful carnation on his forarm would get pummelled. Rin: lol Dr.D.: There were 3 guys in the fraternity a few years ago who got the Theta Chi crest on their left shoulder blades. Dr.D.: There's a famous photo floating around of the three of them standing in a queue, left shoulders out. Pamela: see, now that's okay to me Rin: my best friend has the other half of the ying yang tattoo Rin: but her side is black and says "bitch"
