    Gaya was helping out Fael and comments are her. Just as I was getting to leave, Wol joins me.

    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Wol Euler rubs her eyes and mumbles "Morning, Gaya"
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles. amazing hair given you've just got up Wol
    Wol Euler: hehehehehe
    Wol Euler: one of the advantages of SL
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles. how are you?
    Wol Euler: sleepy. I was awake for a few hours late at night/early this morning.
    Wol Euler: logged in, met corvi and adelene, then slept again until just now.
    Wol Euler: how is your flu? are you better?
    Gaya Ethaniel: mm... a bit better ty but better stay indoors today... again T_T
    Wol Euler nods. Probably wise.
    Gaya Ethaniel: hope I can go out tomorrow
    Wol Euler: wait and see :)
    Wol Euler: (I sound like your mother sorry)
    Gaya Ethaniel: ^^ you are kind of my SL mommy
    Wol Euler smiles and goes all melty. Thank you!
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles

    About Solo's 11 Presentation.

    Gaya Ethaniel: I was reading Solo's page on wiki. have you seen it?
    Wol Euler: the 11 presentations?
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Gaya Ethaniel: that reminded me... yesterday I was upset about something that happened a while ago... while I was reading this, I realised that I'm not 'I' back then so why am I still upset?!
    Wol Euler: aaah :)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Gaya Ethaniel: I carry loads of baggages it seems
    Wol Euler: well, don't we all?
    Gaya Ethaniel nods...
    Wol Euler: we just try to lighten our loads as we go along...
    Gaya Ethaniel nods...
    Faenik: ah :)

    As usual my mind jumps onto another topic out of blue...

    Gaya Ethaniel: I finished a book and starting another one ^^ what are you reading atm?
    Wol Euler: A book I picked up in the train station, "Istanbul" by Orhan Pamuk.
    Wol Euler: It's a combined autobiography and history of the city: "I am Istanbul, it is me"
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles. sounds nice
    Faenik loves wells!
    Wol Euler: he writes very well (I'm reading it in German translation of course, not in Turkish), very clear and simple prose. Quite a delight. I have been chuckling over it often, planning to translate bits of it and post them here in the group.
    Gaya Ethaniel: oh that sounds great Wol. I personally prefer simple writing styles rather than very elaborate.
    Gaya Ethaniel: would you need permissions to translate/post?
    Wol Euler: no, I'm sure that it would count as "fair use" :-)
    Wol Euler: its not as though either I or PaB would get any money from the posting, and I wouldn't post more than a few paragraphs anyway. Every reviewer has the right to quote from the source.
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Wol Euler: besides which, if it inspires one of you to buy a copy, Pamuk and his publishers are ahead. What's not to like?
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles precisely
    Wol Euler smiles tiredly :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: btw Wol how is the writing competition going? have you submitted already? I remember Pema suggesting a children's story about SL
    Wol Euler: oh, it's not a competition as such, or rather the challenge is internal.
    Wol Euler: it's just to try to blog every day for a whole month, to get into the habit of posting more and more often.
    Wol Euler: I might still write that story though :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: oh yes please do
    Wol Euler: anyway, back to Solo and his Presentations.
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Wol Euler: I liked the style very much, reminded me of a favourite poem, "13 ways of looking at a blackbird" by Wallace Stevens
    Wol Euler: I posted a link to it as a comment on his page.
    Faenik loves wells!
    Wol Euler: 13 short fragments of blank verse, quite "poetic": images, feelings, associations rather than description.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah... sounds lovely. I also found Solo's page enjoyable to read
    Wol Euler: I am struggling with 3 though.

    Sorry Wol, I missed your comments on Presentation 3. An incoming Mig…

    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hey Mig
    XO2MIG Karu: ello
    Wol Euler: hello mig, what an appropriate av.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ^^
    XO2MIG Karu: ty
    Gaya Ethaniel: Mig your name and comments will be recorded onto our group web page. do you mind?
    Faenik: why not?
    Wol Euler: wow, you made it yourself? I am much impressed.
    Gaya Ethaniel: and here is a notecard about the group
    XO2MIG Karu: uh ok i stfu ^_^
    Wol Euler chuckles. Naah, everyone is welcome to speak as long as they don't mind being published.
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles. come on Mig
    XO2MIG Karu: ok but this av makes things little hard to move without crushing some one
    Wol Euler: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: ^^
    Wol Euler: there is no pain in SL, except perhaps emotional ...
    Faenik: ah :)
    Wol Euler: (well, take out the "perhaps")
    Gaya Ethaniel: sure
    XO2MIG Karu: lol true but i figure be rather annoying to have a big plane blocking whole screen
    Gaya Ethaniel points out the zoom out function ^^
    XO2MIG Karu: hehe
    Wol Euler: just to be totally clear, may we quote you?
    XO2MIG Karu: quotes has nothing to hide quote ^_^
    Wol Euler: ty
    Gaya Ethaniel: ^^
    Wol Euler: it would be interesting to see you use that av at the Blue Lotus :)
    XO2MIG Karu: never will
    Wol Euler laughs. But why not!? ;-)
    XO2MIG Karu: it's okasans sim and i respect her wishes about her okiya ^_^
    Wol Euler nods. yes, of course, I was being silly.
    Gaya Ethaniel: customers would prefer human AV geishas yes
    XO2MIG Karu: well sillyness is the best thing
    Wol Euler: we are often silly here.
    Gaya Ethaniel nods

    Mig shows off another AV with a spectacular bomb animation which is more attention grabbing than the siren in the old pavilion.

    XO2MIG Karu: hehe i have commen thing about bombing myself commenly

    Mig’s blown away into pieces… and we chatted a little longer before closing the session.
