    The Guardian for this lengthy meeting was Storm Nordwind. The comments are by Storm Nordwind. Things started slowly and quietly. I drew down the space to just eight cushions close around the lotus.

    The title of this session is a recurring lyric in Gerry Rafferty's song "The Ark" ("City to City" ~ 1978).

    Storm Nordwind relaxes in the quiet tranquility
    Storm Nordwind: Good day gentlefriend :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Hello to you also :)
    Storm Nordwind: Hello also to Koya!
    Archmage Atlantis: Small circle
    Archmage Atlantis: She watches
    Storm Nordwind: Yes - for some reason I thought maybe few would come today. That's been correct so far!
    Archmage Atlantis: there were many at the last time
    Storm Nordwind: I notice she is called Koya M. That presumably is to distinguish her from Koya L and Koya N?
    Archmage Atlantis: No, it is a nickname
    Archmage Atlantis: M is for Mariie
    Storm Nordwind: Ah! Please tell me more :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Ouch, Marie, she still has claws
    Archmage Atlantis: OK, let me find her note card, one moment
    --BELL--
    Archmage Atlantis: Koya M Koyaanisqatsi is a Hopi word which means "world out of balance...a state of life that calls for another way." Marie is of French origin. Variant of Mary (Latin) "star of the sea".
    Archmage Atlantis: She came to me long ago in life
    Storm Nordwind: Interesting! I must admit I know no Hopi at all.
    Archmage Atlantis: I know no Hopi, nor do I know french
    Storm Nordwind: French I know. A mandatory school class and the nearest nation speaking a non-English native language

    Archmage raises a topic perhaps on his mind since the previous day.

    Archmage Atlantis: Do you think we should build an ark, Storm.......that was the conclusion of a discussion I had lately
    Storm Nordwind: What kind of ark?
    Archmage Atlantis: Ark, is metaphorical
    Archmage Atlantis: To preserve what we have learned.........we live in a planetary aquarum
    Storm Nordwind: An ark is a respite from some kind of disaster perhaps? What would we need to preserve against?
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning Bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: Good morning, Storm and Arch.
    Archmage Atlantis: You see no disasters that may be in front of us?......I will try to enumerate my visions.......but only because I like the feet on your wisteria
    Bruce Mowbray: and Koya.
    Archmage Atlantis: Hi Bruce
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Archmage Atlantis: Been to the outhouse yes?
    Archmage Atlantis: Hiya Blub
    Bruce Mowbray wonders: "the outhouse?"
    Storm Nordwind recalls the outhouse in the secret garden conversation from a week or so ago :)
    Bruce Mowbray: oh yes -- the outhouse with the wide screen TV.
    Bruce Mowbray: I'd almost forgotten.
    Archmage Atlantis: Ah, sorry, must have mixed stories

    Archmage continues about the idea of an Ark.

    Storm Nordwind: So please continue with your visions, Arch, if you wish :)
    Archmage Atlantis: I will try
    Archmage Atlantis: A person came here, to this circle
    Archmage Atlantis: and suggested we should prepare for the Mayan prophesy
    Bruce Mowbray: Good morning, Aph.
    Storm Nordwind: Good day Aphrodite
    Bruce Mowbray: the end of the world in 2010?
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes
    Storm Nordwind: Please remind me of the prophecy too
    Bruce Mowbray: or was that 2012?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hello all
    Archmage Atlantis: My thought, that the end of all we are could come at any time
    Storm Nordwind: That is true. Life here is fragile
    Aphrodite Macbain: why are we talking about the end of the world
    --BELL--
    Storm Nordwind: Arch was talking about an idea for an "ark" of some sort, Aphrodite. I asked him if he would kindly elaborate :)
    Archmage Atlantis: meteor,, volcanic dark, oceans rising
    Archmage Atlantis: Yet we end daily
    Aphrodite Macbain: It would have to be a rather large arc considering it would have to house billions
    Archmage Atlantis: Yep
    Aphrodite Macbain: of people and animals
    Archmage Atlantis: True
    Archmage Atlantis: One only needs a breeding pair
    Storm Nordwind: And where would it sail to?
    Aphrodite Macbain: and who knows whther there would be enough trees to build it
    Archmage Atlantis: That lets me out as a gay man, open since the 60,s no genetic repro

    A justification for space exploration?

    Aphrodite Macbain: Stephen Hawking has just recently said that we will need to have set up outposts on space in the next century to address such a catastrophe
    Archmage Atlantis: Ah, yes, Mr. Hawking
    Aphrodite Macbain: If we survive that long as a species
    Storm Nordwind: That's probably true, Aphrodite. If we wish to address it at all ;)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Yes
    Aphrodite Macbain: it kind of justifies the expense of the space program
    Storm Nordwind: It only justifies it if long term species survival can also be justified
    Aphrodite Macbain: but who will get saved?
    Aphrodite Macbain: the rich?
    Storm Nordwind shrugs
    Archmage Atlantis: I think, my opinion only...........help me with this Blub, your ancestors did this.........that there is meaning in surviving
    Aphrodite Macbain: biological imperative?
    Bruce Mowbray: Blub ponders Arch's question....
    Storm Nordwind: What meaning Arch?
    Aphrodite Macbain: survive above all
    Archmage Atlantis: To learn to be moral
    Aphrodite Macbain: even plants are programmed that way
    Aphrodite Macbain: atavistic urges
    Storm Nordwind: In the end, in the long long distant future, we will not survive. The universe will not support life as we know it any longer. There will be nowhere to run to.

    Androcentrism?

    Bruce Mowbray: Blub suggests that humans figure out which species have assisted human survival the most. . .
    Archmage Atlantis: What was, and what is........that is where we start from
    Bruce Mowbray: then let shose species onto the ark - while humans stand aside altogether.
    Aphrodite Macbain: very androcentric isn
    Aphrodite Macbain: isn't it?
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Archmage Atlantis: Koya says, what is life?
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'm sure the cockroaches won't care. They'll continue and thrive
    Bruce Mowbray: nope -- the opposite of anthropocentric - - Humans remain behind on the planet while nobler species take the ark.
    Storm Nordwind laughs
    Archmage Atlantis: Not there....and seriously, are we not cockroaches
    Aphrodite Macbain laughs with Storm

    A short-lived visitation, quickly replaced.

    Sartre Placebo: hey everyone
    Storm Nordwind: Good afternoon Sartre
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Sartre.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi Sartre welcome
    Sartre Placebo: ah falsches profil
    Aphrodite Macbain: falsches=false?
    Storm Nordwind: Some German mutterings I believe ;)
    Aphrodite Macbain: where did he go anyway?
    Storm Nordwind: To make what was false become true? ;)
    Aphrodite Macbain: maybe he'll reapear in another form
    Storm Nordwind: To right wrongs?
    Archmage Atlantis: German mutterings are worth hearing..........they seem to be logic
    Aphrodite Macbain: aha here he comes in a true profile?
    Bruce Mowbray: Good afternoon, Yaku.
    Storm Nordwind: Good afternoon Yakuzza!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey guys
    Aphrodite Macbain: Morning!
    Archmage Atlantis: Hiya, Yaku

    An alternative Second Life viewer.

    Yakuzza Lethecus: yeah, just started emerald and hit enter
    Aphrodite Macbain: is Emerald bettr?
    Storm Nordwind: Was it ill? ;)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it depends, i would say yes
    Aphrodite Macbain: how?
    Archmage Atlantis: Smallcircletodayk Yaku
    Yakuzza Lethecus: oh, you have a great build in radar
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you can direct tp
    Yakuzza Lethecus: to ppl in the radar
    Yakuzza Lethecus: so you safe time flying
    Aphrodite Macbain: radar?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: to know who´s around
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh
    Yakuzza Lethecus: for example it´s really useful in bigger sims which take ages to rezz
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'll have to try it
    Storm Nordwind prefers to walk - or fly
    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://blog.modularsystems.sl/2010/0...-beta-release/
    Archmage Atlantis: If Pema is here, more come
    Archmage Atlantis: So that makes sense
    Storm Nordwind: You think so?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, i think so too
    Storm Nordwind: Long term, I haven't seen that
    Aphrodite Macbain: Yaku that was an adress for a modular systems blog
    Archmage Atlantis: They do not chose to reveal that......they are observers also
    --BELL--
    Yakuzza Lethecus: on that page was supposed to be the dl link
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i prefer the beta of emerald
    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://emerald.modularsystems.sl/
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i see the link didn´t work
    Aphrodite Macbain: That did it! Thanks
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you can also see which viewer is used by other ppl, you still have all ur windows like in viewer 1
    Storm Nordwind: You might try http://www.modularsystems.sl/wiki/ for info before downloading :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: where there any subjects today ?
    Aphrodite Macbain: back soon. Going to check out emerald CU soonn
    Storm Nordwind waves

    An ark of a different sort for a contemporary disaster.

    Storm Nordwind: Arch was talking about an ark ... and we got side-tracked a little
    Yakuzza Lethecus: an ark for pakistan ?
    Storm Nordwind: Oh!!
    Storm Nordwind: No not originally - but what a suggestion!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i like the bubbles blub makes
    Bruce Mowbray: Blub does his best..... thanks.
    Storm Nordwind: We are conditioned to see bubbles rise - even in the air. But why do they not fall instead? :)
    Archmage Atlantis: An ark for life, still, an ark for Pakistan would be a good choice :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Do you thing Hawking was serious about building an ark?
    Storm Nordwind: Perhaps the ark for Pakistan is the international so-called 'community' - or should be
    Bruce Mowbray: think.
    Archmage Atlantis: We live in an aquarium.....
    Archmage Atlantis: Ae we more, or only
    Yakuzza Lethecus: wb aph
    Storm Nordwind: In what way are we in an aquarium Arch?
    Bruce Mowbray: Perhaps we could get some practice with building a Pakistan ark -- then use those skills to build one for the whole planet.
    Storm Nordwind: Great point Bruce
    Yakuzza Lethecus: did you log on with emerald aph ?
    Bruce Mowbray: If we could perfect the technology for cloning, then it would not be necessary to take full-grown animals on the ark -- just DNA.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Yes, it's still rezzing
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ah, now it switched ur name into emerald green
    Aphrodite Macbain: brilliant comment Bruce
    Aphrodite Macbain: who would decide what gets cloned and what doesn't tho
    Bruce Mowbray thinks: That was an excellent translation from Aph's translator.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but are we really we wen we get cloned `?
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, if DNA bodies are what matter.........the asteroids can bring those
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-) sorry It seems to come on as a default
    Aphrodite Macbain: ?
    Bruce Mowbray: I was just trying to think of ways that we could get everything onto the ark.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Maybe we need many arks
    Bruce Mowbray: ahhhh!
    Archmage Atlantis: Define everything pls, Bruce
    Aphrodite Macbain: ch community builds their own
    Bruce Mowbray: Surely, out building arcs for Pakistan will give us much practice, then.
    Aphrodite Macbain: each
    Storm Nordwind: Should they be privatised arks or community ones - I can see some groups feeling strongly one way or the other!

    Memories of the Golgafrincham B-Ark bring thoughts of different kind of DNA (Douglas Noël Adams).

    Bruce Mowbray: Everything: Life, The Universe, and All That.
    Archmage Atlantis: 42, I think
    --BELL--
    Bruce Mowbray: http://www.fortytwoday.com/
    Archmage Atlantis: I can't do "omg" as that is not my belief.....stlll, omg
    Aphrodite Macbain: there
    Archmage Atlantis: Douglas Adams as a prophet.....how ironic and funny
    Storm Nordwind: He was always in demand as such
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it will be directly before or on the first day of the stuttgart reatreat when i remember pema´s post correctly
    Aphrodite Macbain: what was that?
    Aphrodite Macbain: his post I mean
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes, I think it's the same day as the first day of the retreat.
    Bruce Mowbray: The day that "42 Day" falls on.
    Storm Nordwind: 101010
    Archmage Atlantis: Magic, so easy in SL,so hard in FL
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Aphrodite Macbain: FL?
    Storm Nordwind: First Life
    Bruce Mowbray: Blub mutters: "So Long, So Long, So Long - and thanks for all the fish!"
    Aphrodite Macbain wonders how a fish can mutter
    Storm Nordwind: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
    Aphrodite Macbain: who said that storm?
    Bruce Mowbray: Asimov?
    Storm Nordwind: Clarke
    Bruce Mowbray: oh --yes... A.C. Clarke.
    Aphrodite Macbain: which Clark?
    Aphrodite Macbain: tx
    Archmage Atlantis: The same way a tiger cub can watch a fish without .......well best left unsaid
    Bruce Mowbray: Arthus C. Clark.
    Bruce Mowbray: Arthur
    Aphrodite Macbain: I like Arthus
    Bruce Mowbray: Blub is glad that Koya is well-behaved..
    Archmage Atlantis: Me too
    Storm Nordwind muses that he has never ejected a pet from the pavilion before ;)
    Archmage Atlantis: I'll ask her to leave

    Bruce's comment brings a rueful reflection.

    Bruce Mowbray: If one thinks of advanced medical technology as a sort of "ark," then we are already making decisions about who will get on and who will be left off.
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes, we need to define ark differently. SL is a form of ark
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but don´t forget to increase the retirement age considering higher lifeexpectation
    Bruce Mowbray: or even -- the availability of food and water. . . Those decisions are already being made.
    Bruce Mowbray: indeed, SL is a sort of ark.
    Aphrodite Macbain: althjo we need to be alive and connected to the web to ente it
    Storm Nordwind: Combine "advanced medical technology" with certain political systems and that may be true Bruce ;)

    Back to avatar radar and viewer problems.

    Aphrodite Macbain: I am receiving something called free Radar Hud
    Aphrodite Macbain: what on earth is that?
    Aphrodite Macbain: maybe it's not on earth
    Storm Nordwind: Someone is wearing a noisy scanner
    Storm Nordwind: I prefer mine - it's quiet :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: meaning?
    --BELL--
    Storm Nordwind: You can wear a scanner that will tell you who is in the same sim and within 96 metres. They are free. Emerald does it by default. If you choose to stop using Emerald, I can give you one for free
    Archmage Atlantis: Nothing is ever free
    Storm Nordwind: Kindness and courtesy cost nothing :)
    Archmage Atlantis: But, more important,did the unwelcome sound stop?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Oh I put it on. But there's still noise
    Yakuzza Lethecus: noise ?
    Bruce Mowbray: Viewer 2 shows avis that are nearby -- what's the advantage of your radar over that?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i never learned to use viewer 2 and i like to have my windows
    Aphrodite Macbain: from my seaker - a constant
    Storm Nordwind: The advantage is that with radar you don't need to use Viewer 2! ;)
    Aphrodite Macbain: speaker. It's abating
    Bruce Mowbray: I see. My preference for for V2, so I guess I'll stick with that - (no radar needed)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Nothing appearing on my bottom right
    Storm Nordwind: As a builder and maintainer of the PaB village, I need to stick with verson 1.
    Aphrodite Macbain: that came out funny sounding!
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Archmage Atlantis: How techie *g*
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hi bertram
    Bruce Mowbray chacks his own bottom right - just to be sure.
    Storm Nordwind: Hi there Bertram
    Yakuzza Lethecus: why do you use emerald bert ?
    Bertram Jacobus: hi everybody :-)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Bert.
    Aphrodite Macbain: I wish I could build it would be fun but I need $L
    Bertram Jacobus: why not yaku ?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi bert- another Emerald user!
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe yes i like it with the radar function and look at and all these features ...
    Storm Nordwind watches the sunrise bring a little extra light
    Archmage Atlantis: 3D was building on a free platform.....haven't heard from in a while
    Aphrodite Macbain: the technolgical trap. more features, less simplicity
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe yes good point aph
    --BELL--
    Aphrodite Macbain: and how come my torso is still grey?
    Storm Nordwind: Try ctrl-alt-r
    Bruce Mowbray: You can watch your bottom right and your torso at the same time, Aph?
    Bruce Mowbray: amazing powers.
    Aphrodite Macbain giggles
    Aphrodite Macbain: I press clt alt R and nothing happens
    Bruce Mowbray: ctrl-alt-r "re-bakes" your textures.
    Aphrodite Macbain: maybe I have to hold my mouth in a certain way
    Bruce Mowbray: or it's supposed to do that (!)
    Bertram Jacobus: may be bad connection aph ? i make the experience, sometimes my connections to sl are fine, then not so good again - no ideas why ... ;-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: am I supposed to see anything differet?
    Bruce Mowbray: torso, bottom right, and MOUTH ,too!!?
    Aphrodite Macbain: all body no mind!
    Aphrodite Macbain: well, Not all body. some of it is missing
    Bertram Jacobus: virtual jumping can help sometimes too. looks silly but can help sometimes ... ;-)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: I don´t know why but when you use emerald for the first time it happens often that something is wrong
    Bertram Jacobus: yep that shall load the clothing "new" / again ... hm
    Bertram Jacobus: or try to wear another top perhaps ?
    Bruce Mowbray: something to do with the cache, perhaps?
    Aphrodite Macbain: couldn't find the tools to make me move
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hmm I'll put another top on and se what happens
    Archmage Atlantis: Hmmm
    Bertram Jacobus: try to touch this - could also help ...
    Archmage Atlantis: That sounds so staight,
    Archmage Atlantis: Bert
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe - what - "undeform" ? :o)
    Archmage Atlantis: No,asking

    Assumptions of identity.

    Aphrodite Macbain: yay I've got my shirt back
    Aphrodite Macbain: oops no I haven't. I'm completely aked. Don't look!
    Aphrodite Macbain: naked
    Bruce Mowbray: You look clothed to me, Aph.
    Archmage Atlantis: You ask thatof a circle of straight males?
    Bruce Mowbray: Please do not assume that I am straight.
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, a gay male
    Storm Nordwind: or male?
    Archmage Atlantis: Oh sorry
    Bruce Mowbray: no problem, Arch.
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Bertram Jacobus: sry - somebody was at my door ...
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes my last bf was a women in
    Aphrodite Macbain: there they go again, those shifting identities
    Archmage Atlantis: sl
    Aphrodite Macbain: I just wish I could get my clothes back on. I am assuming I am surrounded by males

    Stereotypes and what they drink.

    Bruce Mowbray: I simple discourage folks from assuming that I'm a white, Protestant Christian, straight, berr-swigging dude.
    Bruce Mowbray: beer.
    Bruce Mowbray: who also likes to watch football.
    Aphrodite Macbain: well- maybe you drink long island tea
    Bruce Mowbray: when I can get it, yes, Aph.
    Storm Nordwind: hmm... don't know anyone like that personally Bruce!
    Archmage Atlantis: Yeah, even them guys can spell "beer"
    Aphrodite Macbain: yeh them guys
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-) --- I can spell Single Malt Scotch, though.
    Aphrodite Macbain: most important
    Storm Nordwind: och aye!
    Archmage Atlantis: chuckle
    Aphrodite Macbain: said like a true scot
    Bertram Jacobus: ah ! i now see you with a white t shirt aph ! :-)
    Archmage Atlantis: Yea, what is the brand
    Archmage Atlantis: ?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Yes. I thught it was going to be pink. But it's better than nothing
    Storm Nordwind: Brand of T shirt, or brand of whisky Arch?
    Aphrodite Macbain: brand of sm scotch?
    Bertram Jacobus: yeah - it´s a bit pink. but you also seem to wear any "light" or lightening device ... (?)
    Archmage Atlantis: Single malt
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes am I too shiny should I powder my nose?
    Bruce Mowbray: My scotch is Edrador -- the smallest distillery in Scotland -- near Pitlochry.
    Storm Nordwind: Mine is Lagavulin :)
    Bertram Jacobus: powdering one´s nose makes less shiny ? :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: how can you get some of tat in Ohio?
    Bruce Mowbray: You can't get it in Ohio -- have to go to Scotland for it.
    Aphrodite Macbain: that's the theory Bertram
    Storm Nordwind: You can get Lagavulin though - and most Islay malts
    Bertram Jacobus: hm okay - have no experience with such ...
    Aphrodite Macbain: long waits in between bottles
    Bruce Mowbray: yeppers.
    Aphrodite Macbain: guess you're a guy Bertram
    Bertram Jacobus: that´s right
    Archmage Atlantis: red nose? do ppl stillhave that?
    --BELL--
    Aphrodite Macbain: If they've drunk a few glasses of scotch
    Bruce Mowbray: One can buy Edradour Scotch on-line:
    Bruce Mowbray: http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/Vie...turer=Edradour
    Storm Nordwind: By the way, Aphrodite, you can reduce the skin shine by toning down your face-light - which is very bright!
    Archmage Atlantis: Reminds me of pepper....used to be a habananaro.... now it someting else\
    Bertram Jacobus: btw : very interesting symmetry here, even with the sitting positions (!) :-)
    Bertram Jacobus: or did i have to say : sitting poses (?) ... however ...
    Archmage Atlantis: I understand, but I would wish you espress itk
    Aphrodite Macbain: OK thanks!
    Archmage Atlantis: bert
    Bertram Jacobus: express ?
    Aphrodite Macbain: espresso?
    Bertram Jacobus: yes ! i thought about that too

    I place an espresso machine on one of the two vacant cushions.

    Bertram Jacobus: ty storm :o)
    Bertram Jacobus: i wear it but he doesn´t wear it :o)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: thx storm

    Aphrodite Macbain: ALL THIS SURPINGGOING ON!!
    Aphrodite Macbain: slurping
    Bertram Jacobus: whaow - one needs two hands for that ! :o)
    Storm Nordwind is now almost awake :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: haha I love your machine Storm!
    Bertram Jacobus: click the machina arch and then the cups which appear - and the you get two things which you must wear ...
    Bruce Mowbray: hello, kiki
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hi kiki
    Storm Nordwind: And don't forget to click on the cup!
    Bertram Jacobus: hi kiki ! *wave*
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Kiki. Come and have coffee!

    Kiki just passes through and doesn't take the remaining cushion.

    Bertram Jacobus: espresso ? :o)
    Archmage Atlantis: I think I am not
    Storm Nordwind indulges in a second cup
    Bertram Jacobus: you are not ? what arch ? able to drink the espresso ? ;-)
    Archmage Atlantis: The song "hallejeu" is playing
    Bertram Jacobus: don´t hear it, don´t know it (?) ...
    Bertram Jacobus: hear only slurping ... :-)
    Archmage Atlantis: Jeff Buckely
    Aphrodite Macbain: I seem to have the saucer but not the cup
    Aphrodite Macbain: no cups left

    Bruce Mowbray: You might wish to consider moving the cup into your fingers, Aph.
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh no! more fiddling
    Bruce Mowbray: otherwise I fear you'll spill it on your new blouse.

    Coffee finished, there's just time for cakes before departing.

    Archmage Atlantis: It is the noonday here''''''I have friends to care forl.....nice creaton
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hows that?

    Aphrodite Macbain: Well it's 9AM and I must get going
    Bruce Mowbray: Thanks for the fine expresso, Storm.

    Yakuzza Lethecus: is there a piece of cake to that espresso ?

    Storm Nordwind: I was hoping someone else would provide the cake! ;)
    Archmage Atlantis: Nite,, yawl

    What's on at the Kira Café later in the day.

    Aphrodite Macbain: Is any one going to Kira today?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: is the kiss session ?
    Storm Nordwind: I've been here for more than 2 hours, yes!
    Aphrodite Macbain: ways ofknowing
    Bertram Jacobus: i didn´t dont go yet to any related circles of pab ... hm ...
    Aphrodite Macbain: I've never been but they look interesting
