Dr. D.: I see.
Pamela: holy cow, I am taking apart a kleenex box to recycle, and it's held together with super glue

BobS: what is the word on your dad, Pam
Guy B.: Anyone heard from Neal on the convention dates? I'm going to apply for my passport this Sunday. The local post office is having a passport fair.
BobS: I will tell him that!!!
Mrs. D: you should have it by the convention :-)
Dr. D.: Good luck getting it
XP MacFaker: sure glad I did that last year. Our Passport offices now are a zoo
Guy B.: Said 8 tp 10 weeks. Should be enought time.
Dr. D.: OK Pam, do the dump on your Dad.
Pamela: well, as you can see, Rich and Erin went to see him last night and he was pleased to see them. The infection has been cleared up and now it remains to get the wounds on his legs
Pamela: completely healed, and his vertebra back in one piece, and get him on his feet.
XP MacFaker: sounds positive
Guy B.: That's great Pam.
Pamela: once Orthopaedics gets their act together, there is talk of moving him to a rehab hospital
Pamela: he now has a back brace which should help, but Mom says he finds it uncomfortable so I hope we can get it better fitted
moved to room Meeting Place
BobS: it may just be uncomfortable, a man from our church had one and he complained of the same thing
changed username to JudyS
Pamela: the brace is intended to immobilize his back so he can't bend, and to provide support when standing and walking
JudyS: AND I hated it too
JudyS: oh what the heck, didnt' have on
JudyS: one
JudyS: gonna kill this freeking computer if it doesn't start working correctly
Pamela: and of course, because he's been bed ridden for so long, it will take some time to get his muscles reconditioned
Dr. D.: Ctrl-Alt-Del?
XP MacFaker: Murder in Michigan!
JudyS: run over, spindle, mutilate, stomp on and otherwise kill it
Pamela: as I understand it, that's the point of the rehab hospital
BobS: he has been doing that DR D
Dr. D.: okay
Dr. D.: I guess Chairman Bill has decided not to support it anymore :-(
BobS: had to kill that becasue it was always running some darn task or something
JudyS: that may be true, but it is working now
Pamela: feed, annoy, pester, plague, worry, harass - those are the first few words on teh poster we were discussing last night, Rich

(S enjoys the flowers.)
BobS: why is that?
(Egbert the Vicious flings a sword in the direction of his programmer's head (NPC))
XP MacFaker: bad for Rich
BobS: afraid they will change the nurses records?
Dr. D.: Interference with equipment, purportedly.
BobS: yea right
Dr. D.: Probably too expensive a thing to be responsible for keeping track of, too easy to walk away.
Dr. D.: I can sympathize.
XP MacFaker: I'm not allowed to take my cell into the local ECU
Pamela: afraid the patients will do some research and realize they need real medical care : )

Pamela: time line unknown at this point, probably at least another four to six weeks
XP MacFaker: sounds tough
Dr. D.: Rin is now making loud noises.
Mrs. D: :-S
Dr. D.: Unbecoming for polite company.

BobS: thougth Frances was gonna get him a tv...........
Mrs. D: absurd!
Dr. D.: forget that
Dr. D.: Nothing on TV worth that
XP MacFaker: can't say as I blame him.
Pamela: yeah, that's just nuts
XP MacFaker: right
JudyS: that is awful, but it would make the day go by faster
Pamela: heck you could pay for his satellite and our cable for a month for that
XP MacFaker: When Mom was in the hospital here, it was $28 a week
Dr. D.: At UH in Cleveland, it is part of the basic room cost ...
XP MacFaker: quite a variance
Pamela: in truth, I doubt he'd watch it anyway, Judy
Dr. D.: Rin is now lecturing me on economics
XP MacFaker: probably not
Dr. D.: and politics
Pamela: except for CFL football games and car races, he doesn't watch TV
Mrs. D: and political structures
JudyS: not even the news or weather
BobS: he could learn to love soap opera's
BobS: and judge shows
Pamela: not anymore - they get their news from the papers and their weather from Environment Canada and NOAA websites
Dr. D.: Weather in the hospital is quite mild, periods of bright fluorescent lighting followed by dimness.
JudyS: I doubt that, Bob
BobS: and , and, and lots of stupid stuff

Dr. D.: Secret Storm
Dr. D.: Guiding Light

Dr. D.: Dark Shadows
BobS: YOU Doc have been watching, yes???????
Dr. D.: When I was a kid
XP MacFaker: sounds like you're an expert Dr. D

XP MacFaker: Like sands in the hour glass, these are the Days of our Lives
JudyS: so was my dads room, but that was there choice
Mrs. D: Another World was my it's gone
Pamela: got to the point where I dressed in layers, peeled off when I arrived and donned again when I left

Dr. D.: End justifieth not means
XP MacFaker: spoken in truth Dr D

Pamela: the Cornwells?
BobS: sure, just accept one and three others call
JudyS: yes
Pamela: ah, okay
XP MacFaker: I still quite firmly believe that WORK is a four letter word
Pamela: my biggest problem is, my authors don't write fast enough for me
Dr. D.: in academia we call it a "curriculum vitae"
Dr. D.: Fanfic then Pam
BobS: I agree Ron.....this part time job in the afternoons is KILLING me
Pamela: so is FOOD, Ron
moved to room Meeting Place
JudyS: don't get Bob started on that Ron
changed username to Scott
BobS: I am so tired at night, I need a nap
Scott: Hello.
BobS: HI Scott
Scott: Back from the dead, I am.
Pamela: Hi, Scott!
XP MacFaker: yes..... food is my downfall
JudyS: Hi, Scott
Guy B.: Scott, long timr no see.
BobS: longa timea noa seea.........
XP MacFaker: Hey Scott!
Guy B.: time that is.
Daniel Bienvenu: my curriculum vitae is up-to-date...
Pamela: well, it's what results from Work, Ron - that's the problem
BobS: how's things?
Guy B.: What have you been doing?
XP MacFaker: true
BobS: WORK........nasty four letter word
Dr. D.: Well, Pam was just talking about all things dead...
Scott: Working 2 jobs right now, plus have a new baby. Hard to get online Wednesday night.
Pamela: that and HOME : )
Dr. D.: congratulations Scott
JudyS: yes, and we need that, to keep me in the lifestyle I am used to
XP MacFaker: workplace politics, internal struggles for control, jealousy, envy, sloth,
BobS: TWO jobs?
Scott: My son was born on July 20th. He's about 8 months now.
Guy B.: Wow, no wonder.
BobS: got to slow a little maybe ........later
XP MacFaker: and a lot of CYA
Pamela: me too, Judy : ) - that and books
Guy B.: What's his name?
Scott: Aidyn
Pamela: although, everyone knows to get me Chapters gift certificates for Christmas and birthdays, and I'm a happy camper
XP MacFaker: What are ya up to these days Scott?
Scott: Aidyn / Aidan means "little fire" in Irish
Daniel Bienvenu: this saturday, I have a meeting with my friends video game collectors in Montreal.
Pamela: and is he living up to his name? : )
XP MacFaker: Isn't there a St. Aiden?
Pamela: sounds like fun, Daniel
Scott: Right now I'm editing a fantasy novel that I wrote and working for Northrop Grumman and Hyatt
JudyS: I go to the libary don't buy them wouldn't know what to do with them all when done with them
XP MacFaker: aircraft?
BobS: the hotel people?
Pamela: wallpaper the house with them, that's what we did : )
Dr. D.: lunar module
Pamela: shelves and shelves and shelves full of books
Daniel Bienvenu: I think I will talk about this year Adamcon to the Coleco programmers who will be there.
Dr. D.: that is Grumman to me :-)
JudyS: that is why I request them pick them up and bring them back
Scott: Yes, there's a St. Aidan of Lindisfarne, but my son isn't named after him
XP MacFaker: ohhhhhh Dr. D. REALLY!
Pamela: I go back and read them over and over again
JudyS: they have a great website
BobS: cool Daniel
Dr. D.: yes Ron
Scott: Wow, there's an AdamCon coming up. Where is it taking place?
JudyS: not me know the ending
XP MacFaker: Ottawa
Pamela: by the time I've gotten through all my Nora Roberts, I'm ready for a break and move on to fantasy or murder mysteries for a while
Dr. D.: Ron, some light reading for you in that vein:
Dr. D.:
Scott: Nora Roberts, yes, great role model for all writers
Pamela: then, someone writes something new and I start the process over again
Scott: I've read up on her processes, but not necessarily her novels
Pamela: she is my absolute favourite author, Scott - and I've got all the books she's ever written
Daniel Bienvenu: I bought a waffle iron a month ago. I'm using it sometimes and I like waffles.
XP MacFaker: got it Dr D
Dr. D.: Enjoy
Scott: Apparently she writes for 8-10 hours every day. No days off.
Scott: That's part of the reason she's able to produce as much as she does.
Scott: Of course, it doesn't hurt to have her talent.
XP MacFaker: pasted it into my Wordpad
Dr. D.: It's fascinating stuff if you like technical writing.
Pamela: very true. Sounds sort of off topic, but have you read the Da Vinci Code?
Scott: No, the subject matter of the Da Vinci Code doesn't interest me.
XP MacFaker: I enjoy having written
Scott: But I do own a copy
XP MacFaker: the rest is work and that's a 4 letter word
Pamela: well, it's not very well written
Daniel Bienvenu: before I forgot, I think my coleco friends who will be able to go to the adamcon will appreciate having a copy of the colecovision programming manual.
Dr. D.: You have yours, Daniel.
Pamela: that's the reason I asked. Nora has the ability to paint a picture with words - once you start her novels, you feel like you can picture everything she writes
Dr. D.: Distribute copies as much as you wish.
XP MacFaker: you mean a printed copy?
XP MacFaker: I believe I have one or two
Daniel Bienvenu: my copy is actually in Germany
Scott: The author claims the book is a work of fiction, then stands by his research claiming his is the absolute truth.
Pamela: Dan Brown lacks that ability, and it showed in the Da Vinci Code
Scott: Hmmm, interesting.
Scott: I've read a lot of Dean Koontz.
Daniel Bienvenu: I did a copy of my copy... but I give it to someone the time to copy it
Scott: I was surprised to learn that he's a very fast writer as well.
XP MacFaker: and you never saw it again
Dr. D.: ...and then never got it back?
Pamela: i've never been able to get into his books
JudyS: I have not read the Da Vinci Code
Daniel Bienvenu: well, I suppose to get it back saturday
Daniel Bienvenu: during the meeting
Dr. D.: I hope so...
Scott: If you read one of Koontz's books, it should be Hideaway.
Scott: It shows what he's capable of when given the time.
XP MacFaker: I will never read the Da Vinci Code, or at least not until my Daughter-in-law gives me back my copy
JudyS: doesn't interest me either, made a stir in church
Pamela: his books tend to lean toward horror, or psych thrillers though, right?
XP MacFaker: but I've seen the movie, so that pretty much killed it
XP MacFaker: I need to read more fiction.
BobS: hope you get it back Daniel, there are only som many and the copies gets worse as they get copied
XP MacFaker: When I get to it, I quite enjoy it
Scott: Yes, it's a mix of science fiction, horror, and psych thriller. Sometimes it works (Hideaway), othertimes it doesn't (Dragon Tears)
XP MacFaker: but at 230 words a minute, everything is very very long
BobS: Daniel, you can go online to Dr D's website and print it out..........
Pamela: I am more into fantasy, murder mysteries, and anything by Nora Roberts. It's for that reason that I'm not a big Stephen King fan, either
BobS: get anewly printed copy you would
Mrs. D: well folks I think I'm going to hit the hay soon
Pamela: my computer says it's only 10:00
Dr. D.: That's the ADAm manual, not the CV manual.
XP MacFaker: why? it's only 8pm
BobS: ah.........
BobS: well it should help , yes?????
JudyS: night Mrs D
Pamela: it hasn't caught up to the new DST yet
Mrs. D: everybodys a wise guy :-)
Scott: Stephen King is an interesting one. I read Bag of Bones which was OK, but could have been reduced 200 pages.
XP MacFaker: my Mac Book obviously doesn't know we're on daylight saving
Dr. D.: Sounds like a plan Ms. Rin.
XP MacFaker: it say 6:53 pm
Pamela: good night, Rin
Dr. D.: Nite all.
XP MacFaker: G'nite to the Drushel's
Mrs. D: y'all have a good nite and week!!
XP MacFaker: be well
