Russ: hi Kiri.
Russ: got anything more to throw?
Kiri: yeah, I've got my underwear.
Skip: what are you throwing?
Kiri: well I threw my skirt.....the
technician told me that I was a under-stuffed
Laura: did you throw something at him?
Kiri: ahhh her.
Kiri: yes, well actually I tripped over
her. She had her feet stuck out monitoring things
and I tripped over her feet so she called me an
under-staffed beanpole so I threw my skirt at her
which made Omal chuckle so I threw my T-shirt at
Skip: have you got anything left on
Kiri: yes, I'm in my underwear.
Russ: well at least you're behaving.
Kiri: hey, at least I don't have a
Russ: that's true.
Kiri: but as it just so happens I know
where the feather's stashed.
Russ: that's all right I know where the
rollerblades are stashed.
(Taken away from her after an incident
while wearing them.)
Kiri: I do too. They're not where you
think they are, they're not where Karra thinks
Russ: well they will be.
Skip: (everyone laughs.)
Kiri: she's got to have the key to open
up a little storage device I have.
(A fifth dimension space where it is
bigger on the inside than on the outside.)
only about yeah big. I've got about 40 cases of
wine in there, I've got eight bolts of fabric,
I've got three bolts of silk, I've got in
suspended storage I have 24 flowers (See glossary)
and the harvest was fantastic, very short but
Russ: excellent. So what's the 40 cases
of wine, small change?
Kiri: yes, small change. Talking of
flowers, I was selling them for five cases each.
Russ: that's all?
Kiri: that's per flower.
Russ: yeah I know, that's all?
Kiri: that's all?
Russ: that's all? They were
the pink ones. I thought they went for more than
that usually for a good harvest?
Kiri: for a good harvest you can pick up
probably for 24 cases, a dozen. That's depending
on.......but five cases for one.
Laura: have you no chocolate there?
Kiri: yes we have chocolate. Tia can't
eat it because it makes her batty and it's a
little sharp for me.
Russ: kids like it though.
Kiri: uh huh.
Russ: cool, so how's Alex
and Leonedies doing?
Kiri: they're doing good, real good.
Leonedies, his teaching programs are causing
problems for some of the other students in the
other crèches. They're a little too high-reaching
for them. And then there were a few that were
absolute disasters but hell, he's young.
Russ: that's true.
Kiri: he's only three. Alex has turned
into a full on prankster. Which is good but I
can't tell him that.
Russ: of course.
Kiri: it's better than he was. Alex for
your information, he's my eldest son, he
had a interesting dysfunction that he had
permanently blinding headaches. First of all he
thought that they were normal, everybody had
headaches because he didn't know any better. And
he would be.......you tell him to stay
put and he would stay put, you
tell him to do something, he was ultra, ultra
good. Very obedient, extremely obedient and that
was because of his headaches. Now
that we fixed his headache
problems.........(Sighs) I've got the headaches.
Skip: (laughs) knew that was coming.
Kiri: for example, bedroom doors being
Laura: that's not very nice.
Kiri: well, Tia's children decided that
they were going to make off with a couple of his
toys in fun. So whilst they were hiding his
favorite toy he went and nailed their door shut so
that they couldn't get into their room.
Laura: that's creative.
Kiri: very creative. I thought it was
very talented but I had to do the......"Alex, come
here, go and remove the nails and then come back
and explain why". That's my I'm upset tone and
trying to suppress a smile.
Laura: but not entirely.
Kiri: no, it's very hard. Better check
your recording device. Okay let's answer
questions, anybody got any questions, child
Skip: yeah, how do you build a warp
Kiri: if I could throw my bra at you from
here I would.
Skip:(laughs) I don't need it darling,
I'm not built that well. I had to tease you a
Kiri: I should have seen that one coming.
Okay I'm not talking to you anymore, Russ?
Russ: any viruses down here we
