    Wol Euler: good morning
    Agatha Macbeth: Mornin sexy :)
    Wol Euler: look who's talking.
    Agatha Macbeth: Hehe
    Wol Euler: at least I'm fully dressed (in my own viewer)
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes!
    Agatha Macbeth: And looking very nice too
    Wol Euler: and now you are too. Ah well :)
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Wol Euler: new outfit?
    Agatha Macbeth: No, had it ages
    Wol Euler: huh
    Agatha Macbeth: It was one of the ones I bought when Ora trei closed down
    Wol Euler: ah.
    Wol Euler: nice stripes.
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Not too much like a deckchair one hopes
    Wol Euler: ha!
    Wol Euler: people might sit on you
    Agatha Macbeth: Depends on the person :p
    Wol Euler: mmhmm :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Ara seems to do it often :)
    Wol Euler: she likes you.
    Agatha Macbeth: I like her too
    Agatha Macbeth: Feisty and sweet
    Agatha Macbeth: Well I'm in the middle of trying to finish a bowl of cornflakes at the moment
    Wol Euler: I am making tea, didn't have time for cereal
    Wol Euler: I hope to live long enough to see this Daylight Savings Time nonsense scrapped.
    Agatha Macbeth haz coffee
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes
    Agatha Macbeth: True
    Agatha Macbeth: So it's just after 9 with you?
    Wol Euler: yes
    Agatha Macbeth: 8.13 here
    Wol Euler: or if not scrapped, at least the Brits and the Yanks could wake up and join the rest of hte world.
    Wol Euler: the only thing stupider than DST is having two different starting dates for it.
    Agatha Macbeth: And Europe too
    Agatha Macbeth: Absolutely
    Agatha Macbeth: That was Bush's doing i believe
    Wol Euler: not surprised
    Wol Euler: probably somebody told him that this would make the top 0.1% of the American population even richer, so of course he did it
    Agatha Macbeth: Ha
    Agatha Macbeth: Mr popular
    Agatha Macbeth: (Sry, still quite dark here)
    Agatha Macbeth: Sleep well?
    Agatha Macbeth pokes you
    Agatha Macbeth: (She's in the kitchen I'll bet)
    Wol Euler: sorry, I was indeed in the kitchen
    Wol Euler: I slept very well, thanks
    Agatha Macbeth: Now, how did I guess?
    Wol Euler: as I lay in bed thihs monring, I was on the point of saying "ah, and I have anohter hour to sleep!" -- when I remembered the Yanks and their ridiculous inability to do sensible things.
    Agatha Macbeth: :(
    Wol Euler: really.
    Wol Euler: hello alf
    Agatha Macbeth: Whose session is this normally?
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi Alf
    Wol Euler: nobody's. It is one of the now many open ones
    Wol Euler: IIRC
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Agatha Macbeth: It used to be Moon's, right?
    Alfred Kelberry: oi
    Agatha Macbeth: Wotcha doin' Boxyboy?
    Alfred Kelberry: observing
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah

    Wol Euler: good
    Wol Euler: you'll tell us if you see someting interesting?
    Alfred Kelberry: woly in starbucks? :)
    Wol Euler: at home
    Agatha Macbeth: Not that it's easy to see much with all these trees
    Wol Euler: because of the timechange.
    Wol Euler: and the damned yanks
    Wol Euler grumbles
    Agatha Macbeth ponders 'no time'
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, yes... time change
    Agatha Macbeth: So we can sleep when it's light and come home when it's dark
    Agatha Macbeth: Very logical
    Wol Euler: which we do anyway, at least here in the northern half of the northern hemisphere
    Wol Euler: I think it's a crock, myself.
    Agatha Macbeth thinks about that
    Wol Euler: sure, in winter here sunrise is at 9am and sunset at 4pm
    Wol Euler: whta damned use does DST do there?
    Agatha Macbeth: Not a lot
    Wol Euler: aaaaaaanyway.
    Wol Euler: at least we still have Agatha's birthday champagne, which through the miracle of SL hasn't even gone flat.
    Agatha Macbeth: It's Aphrodite's actually ;P
    Wol Euler: but your present
    Wol Euler: cheeers!
    Agatha Macbeth: Coincidentally we have the same b-day
    Wol Euler: oh! Oh, I see, it really is hers.
    Wol Euler: heheh
    Wol Euler: what a coincidence.
    Agatha Macbeth: Same initials too
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh dear
    Agatha Macbeth: For the record, Wol poofed
    Wol Euler: and is back
    Agatha Macbeth: Seems to be happening a lot in Bieup lately
    Wol Euler: mmm?
    Agatha Macbeth: Crashy crashy

    Freud Jungsten: How is everyone today?
    Agatha Macbeth: Yawning, just woke up

    Agatha Macbeth: According to Storm's email
    Freud Jungsten: Can't wait till next week.
    Freud Jungsten: Elections will be over.... so sick of it.

    Agatha Macbeth: Dry here for a change
    Freud Jungsten: Been perfrect running weather here in Oklahoma recently.
    Agatha Macbeth: They should have the Olympics there
    Freud Jungsten: What a funny thought reaaly.
    Freud Jungsten: Reminds me of that commedians routine about the olymbic in atlanta or wherever they were.
    Agatha Macbeth: Don't know that one
    Freud Jungsten: Found his name.... jeff foxwothy
    Agatha Macbeth: Can't say I know him I'm afraid

    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, that sounds more familiar
    Wol Euler: ah, yes
    Freud Jungsten: looked up on Youtube... soe funny stuff.
    Freud Jungsten: I almost qualify as a redneck, so I can appreciate it..... smiles
    Agatha Macbeth: Qt is the YouTube king :)
    Freud Jungsten: Love youtube..... can waste hours on it.
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Agatha Macbeth: I only tend to look at it if I'm after something specific
    Wol Euler: just as well :)
    Freud Jungsten: Makes a good study break.
    Qt Core: love youtube, have wasted hours on it ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: It is very useful tho :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Or can be
    Freud Jungsten: I love to find the rantings of unstable people......lol
    Freud Jungsten: I am actually in a couple of youtube vids.... is sort funny to see yourself.
    Wol Euler: huh
    Agatha Macbeth: TV celebrity
    Freud Jungsten: Not quite.
    Agatha Macbeth: (TV = television that is) :p
    Freud Jungsten: lol
    Wol Euler: what else would it mean?
    Agatha Macbeth ponders
    Freud Jungsten: Sounds like a disease.
    Freud Jungsten: When you have Tuberculosis and Herpies at the same time?
    Agatha Macbeth: No, that's Vitas gerulaitis
    Agatha Macbeth: Sounds nasty
    Freud Jungsten: Never had one though.... intend to keep it that way.
    Agatha Macbeth: Don't blame you
    Freud Jungsten: One of the added benifits of not being straight.... grins
    Agatha Macbeth: I think everybody's still half asleep
    Wol Euler nods and yawns :)
    Freud Jungsten: lol
    Wol Euler: the lag is definitely on *this* side of the internet cable today.
    Freud Jungsten: The sim is realtehr laggy for me as well.
    Agatha Macbeth: Still using that dongle?
    Wol Euler: um, I meant myself :)
    Wol Euler: *I* am laggy today
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh
    Qt Core: not really sleepy but reluctant to start the day
    Agatha Macbeth: the 0100 slot is kind of in the middle of nowhere for everybody
    Freud Jungsten: We could pick a nice an contriversial topic to hit to wake everyone up.
    Qt Core: i like it on saturdays and sundays, especially now that is at 9am here, a slower way to awake
    Freud Jungsten: I like to run frist thing in the morning.
    Agatha Macbeth: 'Slower' is the word Qt ;-)
    Qt Core: waiting after my eyes get able to focus i like to read, on paper or on a monitor first things in the morning (weekend mornung, that is)
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Freud Jungsten: Actually trying to remmber tha tlast time I read a newpaper.
    Qt Core: sometimes a walk would be good to, but no running for me ;-)
    Wol Euler: only when I'm on holiday, freud :)
    Freud Jungsten: I run way too much.... my addiction.
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, I'll definitely be out for a walk in a while
    Qt Core: you are lucky, it is one of the healthier addictions
    Freud Jungsten: Want to come running wiht me?... I tend to do 10 or so a day on the weekends.
    Wol Euler: good god :)
    Freud Jungsten: Well, that and coffee.
    Qt Core: i'm too fat to run can only walk on a brisk pace
    Freud Jungsten: And chocolate.
    Freud Jungsten: And shoes.
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Freud Jungsten: My doc wants me to cut down how much I run.
    Freud Jungsten: So trimming it a little.... difficult.
    Qt Core: if you run as you like the mind status you got while running you can try meditation or yoga
    Qt Core: and exchange times from running to that
    Freud Jungsten: Interesting idea... I will check that out.
    Freud Jungsten: My endorphin rush does not really hit until about mile 6..... so that is when I really start enjoying it.
    Qt Core: i would be hit by a stroke way before that ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Or a car :p
    Qt Core: noo, being fat has its good sides, im quite visible ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Hee
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Agatha Macbeth: Paint yourelf yellow
    Qt Core: :)
    Freud Jungsten: Yellow is such an 80s color.
    Qt Core: time to (sigh) really start the day
    Freud Jungsten: Oh well.
    Freud Jungsten: Enjoy.
    Wol Euler: take care, qt.
    Agatha Macbeth: Have fun Qt
    Qt Core: bye all and have fun!
    Agatha Macbeth: Ciao
    Agatha Macbeth: Working today Wol?
    Wol Euler: yes, later on
    Wol Euler: noonish probably, have to talk to the boss about that
    Wol Euler: alf is torturing the autologger :) making it rez and destroy listeners for him
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe we should throw him in the fountain
    Wol Euler: hello darren
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello darren
    Darren Islar: still here :)
    Freud Jungsten: osiyo
    Darren Islar: hi everyone
    Agatha Macbeth feels around. Yes.
    Darren Islar: it's confusing those timechanges
    Wol Euler: yeah
    Wol Euler: especially when some don't change.
    Agatha Macbeth: Mm, we know :)
    Darren Islar: right
    Darren Islar: one in particular:)
    Agatha Macbeth: What happens in Canada then?
    Wol Euler: changes at the same time as the Americans, I'm sure
    Agatha Macbeth: I see
    Agatha Macbeth: Would be logical I guess
    Darren Islar: okay 2 then :)
    Agatha Macbeth: But Arizona and Hawaii don't change anyway
    Wol Euler cheers for them
    Darren Islar: ah right yes, there seems to be differences in states
    Wol Euler: islands of commonsense
    Darren Islar: between states
    Wol Euler: Saskatchewan doesn't either, now that I think of it
    Wol Euler: and strangely enough, the world does not end.
    Darren Islar: hehehe
    Agatha Macbeth: Well, yeah
    Darren Islar: not yet that is :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Another 2 years :p
    Wol Euler: :-PPPPP
    Wol Euler: spare me the Atzec crap
    Agatha Macbeth: Mayan
    Agatha Macbeth: Is that Aztec?
    Wol Euler: mayan :-P
    Agatha Macbeth: BWAHAHAH
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: no, but seriously. They didn't believe that the world would end in 2012. They thought in fact that it would never end.
    Wol Euler: they believed that time ran (runs) in cycles
    Wol Euler: many different cycles, overlapping
    Agatha Macbeth: It's just that their calendar finishes then
    Wol Euler: they thought that at the point in time when a cycle stops and restarts, that there might be moments of great change
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Wol Euler: and in 2012, by coincidence, *many* cycles stop and restart.
    Wol Euler: so many moments of very great change.
    Agatha Macbeth: Well, change for the better I can handle
    Wol Euler shuts up about the damned Mayans already.
    Freud Jungsten: Those things sorta empower you to interpret them as you want.
    Agatha Macbeth: Aztecs
    Wol Euler laughs.
    Agatha Macbeth: If I don't get some fresh air soon, I'm gonna go face down on the keyboard
    Wol Euler: bye aggers, enjoy the day.
    Agatha Macbeth: Take care all, enjoy Sunday
    Freud Jungsten: Ciao.
    Wol Euler: you too
    Freud Jungsten: They all left us.... oh well.
    Wol Euler: yeah
    Wol Euler: do you have anything to add, Freud? :)
    Wol Euler: if not, we could both try to get a little more sleep :)
    Freud Jungsten: Was going to ask some more overseas folks what their view of our upcoming election was.
    Freud Jungsten: But never found the chance.
    Wol Euler: hmmmm
    Freud Jungsten: So bed time it isw.
    Wol Euler: anohter time, yes.
    Wol Euler: goodnight, freud, sleep well.
    Freud Jungsten: OK.... ciao then.
