    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, i didn't know that, guest
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and you have to be aware that everything around play as being is going to be logged and pasted online
    Rhiannon Dragoone: there's often a lot of lag here
    Yakuzza Lethecus: on the wiki, that´s why i gave you the notecard about play as being

    Rhiannon Dragoone: But you won't get stoned for working on Sundays
    Yakuzza Lethecus: with phoenix you have an option that you can doubleclick somewhere and and direclty tp to that location@ rhi
    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, ok, yeah, i think i mused about that yesterday
    Yono Imako: i dont see any of u im so laggy
    Rhiannon Dragoone: When i was looking for where display names were for guest
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, guest.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, i've come here and everyone was invisible
    Rhiannon Dragoone: but i'm seeing everyone perfectly now
    Yono Imako: i see on minimap only yet
    Yono Imako: no worries
    Yono Imako: its just avatars
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, we've surrounded you with base ball bats, Yono
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi Zen!
    Yakuzza Lethecus whispers silence for 90 seconds and try to meditate 9 seconds pls
    Yono Imako: yak wats the note card

    Zen Arado: Hi Rhi and everyone
    Bruce Mowbray: OK -- I just gave notecards to everyone except Yaku and Zen.

    Bruce Mowbray: ;-) Yayyyy for notecards in abundance!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: pls take a pillow yono
    Rhiannon Dragoone: lag guest
    Zen Arado: have to clear out my notecard inventory - another resolution
    Rhiannon Dragoone imagines Yono nude to get the impact of when she's stuck standing
    Rhiannon Dragoone decides she definitely *can't* see the problem
    Rhiannon Dragoone: lol
    Rhiannon Dragoone: guest, the great thing about PaB is that there is no pressure to say anything, and *anything* you say is accepted
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And that wasn't lag; i was just slow to respond to you. Sorry
    Rhiannon Dragoone: You see; you're already fittiing in by being accepting
    Rhiannon Dragoone: nitety, night, yono
    Rhiannon Dragoone: sleep tight
    Bruce Mowbray: Good night, Yono.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: good night yono
    Yono Imako: ok guys im off to sleep too
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Where did Zen run off to?
    Yono Imako: got headache
    Yono Imako: nite kitty
    Rhiannon Dragoone: nice seeing you, Yono
    Bruce Mowbray wonders whether Yono is Nav'i -- but sees no tail.
    Yono Imako: same
    Bruce Mowbray: Come back when you can, Yono.
    Yono Imako: will do
    Yono Imako: thanks bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: YW. ;-)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Rhia. I'm getting messages from a blue fish that wants to know you better.
    Bruce Mowbray: but he's shy.
    Bruce Mowbray: His name is Blub.
    Bruce Mowbray: Do fish upset you, Rhia?
    Bruce Mowbray: because Blub sure want to visit you.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Blub! Your pet, Bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Mick!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Blub may vist me, as long as you're with him
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi MIck!
    Mickorod Renard: Hi Guys
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey mick
    Mickorod Renard: just passing by
    Rhiannon Dragoone laughs
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Blub swam right through me
    Rhiannon Dragoone: ::giggles::
    Mickorod Renard: cant see anyone
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey alf
    Mickorod Renard: yay,,hi guest
    Rhiannon Dragoone: who's alf?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ah, now he´s in range
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Alfred? Is he here?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: or not
    Yakuzza Lethecus: 22,8 m
    Bruce Mowbray can't see Alfred yet.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeha, he's .88 out of chat range
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey alf
    Alfred Kelberry: meep-meep!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: here he is!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hey Boxy!
    Mickorod Renard: ALFIEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Boxy!
    Alfred Kelberry: what's one hell of a greeting :)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: He took a great picture of me the other day; it's now my profile picture
    Alfred Kelberry: so glad it was put in good use, rhia :)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi Brian!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, just remembeted, Brian was the guy who wanted me to leave the other day
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Brian.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: you're a good SL photographer, boxy
    Alfred Kelberry: thank you, rhia :)
    Alfred Kelberry: i also take rl pictures, as well :)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, crap; it must have been when i switched to Phoenix; it's gone back to the old picture; i'll have to re load it
    Mickorod Renard: yea, when u get an rl one of Rhi let me have one Alf
    Rhiannon Dragoone: boxy, you a rl photographer? Professionally, I mean
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I have a rl one in my profile, Mick; from my portfolio
    Alfred Kelberry: no, just a hobby
    Alfred Kelberry: mick, if rhia doesn't mind :)
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    Mickorod Renard: I may peek at your profile, although i dont usually, I feel like a peeping tom when I have in the past
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Mick, well, the first page is always a hook; rl, maybe a bit of a peeping for some people; i dunno
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I'm careful what i put there; my features (and, er, olther things) are obsccured in shadows in the pic
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And i joke about who ppl think I really am
    Rhiannon Dragoone: The latest rumor at PI is that i'm Saul Kripke
    Mickorod Renard: nice leg
    Rhiannon Dragoone: thanks
    Bruce Mowbray is running to get the last of the sausage and sauerkraut -- BRB.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: you don't think my foot is too big; my feet are my most embarassing feature, i think
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hb, bruce
    Rhiannon Dragoone: It's ironic how in sl, i have to wear shoes to get my feet just right.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: did brian leave?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, guest, you can customize the bums
    Rhiannon Dragoone: but finding prim feet to match; that's a chore
    Mickorod Renard: well, it looks ok to me, although as your foot is closer to the camera there is a risk it may have appeared disproportionate,,which it doesnt
    Rhiannon Dragoone: guest, yeah; you can customize your avi
    Bruce Mowbray is back with the sauerkraut and sausage. . .
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Mine is based on that rl picture
    Rhiannon Dragoone: share, bruce; share
    Rhiannon Dragoone: i haven't had breakfast you
    Rhiannon Dragoone: no, it was sculpted this way, along with the rest, except for the feet, guest
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And i'm hoping the new Phoenix will allow me to use make up & lipstick
    Bruce Mowbray hopes Rhia won't get hungry enough to have fish for breakfast.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: fish and chips
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, so i settled for shoes,, as it would take me hours to get my prim bare feet right after a throwback on viewer 2
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, you look good in the clothes you are wearing, guest
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, phoenix does too; i rezed first with my armani, afro hair and bax boots
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Fortunately, i just had to take them off
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeh, i was 2 tone; this hair and the long afro
    Mickorod Renard: guest, you look charming
    Mickorod Renard: is Yaku asleep?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: jep
    Mickorod Renard: brb
    Rhiannon Dragoone: bruce, are you naked with a tree for a head?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye
    Rhiannon Dragoone: cu guest!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Thanks for joing us
    Bruce Mowbray: Bye, guest!
    Bruce Mowbray: It's the sauerkraut -- It's cauing some weird transformations. . .
    Rhiannon Dragoone: There used to be a guy who'd come to my discussions as a tree
    Bruce Mowbray: causing*
    Rhiannon Dragoone: He would also wander through the PI Commons that way
    Bruce Mowbray: Did he also eat sauerkraut?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Reminded me of a Phillipino movie where tree monsters attacked ppl; onnly it was badly directed, so you could see the tennis shoes at the base of the tree
    Rhiannon Dragoone: don't know what he ate, bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: Being able to appear as a tree seems to bring me a bit closer to the direct experience of BEING a tree -- which has been a life-long dream of mine.
    Bruce Mowbray supposes that some folks want to be boxes. . . as others want to be trees.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: bruce, yes, it would; one of the nice things about sl
    Mickorod Renard: back
    Yakuzza Lethecus: wb mick
    Mickorod Renard: :) ty
    Bruce Mowbray: welcome back, Mick!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: wb Mick
    Mickorod Renard: has the visitor left?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, we could cut down trees to make more boxes
    Rhiannon Dragoone: now, no one tell him what we said about him behind his back
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Mick, which visitor?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Were you shy because guest was here?
    Mickorod Renard: the one that i cant say her name
    Bruce Mowbray: oh nooooo! Don't cut down trees. . . You can now make boxes out of recycled pop bottles.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi Zon!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey zon
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Zon!
    Mickorod Renard: I think its about time the world realized they shouldnt make anything out of plastic that could be made of something else
    Mickorod Renard: Hi Zon
    Bruce Mowbray: But if the plastic already exists -- and you can recycle it ----
    Mickorod Renard: yes, but the more it gets recycled the more chance it stands of getting mixed into the food chain
    Bruce Mowbray: actually, Boxy is the authority on such things - having experience with cardboard, and all. . .
    Bruce Mowbray: Good point about the food chain. . .
    Bruce Mowbray: My vulnerabilities are showing. . . . Fish for breakfast, possibly (if Rhia gets hungry enough) and wood for boxes. . .
    Mickorod Renard: it eventually gets chopped into such small bits it washes down river into the sea where the fish eat it and then we eat the fish etc
    Bruce Mowbray listens for more of the food chain -- "we eat the fish. . . " and who eats US?
    Bruce Mowbray: One way or another, it's got to come 'round to the trees again.
    Mickorod Renard: well,,tree's are ok
    Mickorod Renard: so far
    Bruce Mowbray recommends NOT listening to anything said by a drunk tree.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ok, i go to bed, good night everyone
    Bruce Mowbray: Good night, Yaku!
    Mickorod Renard: good night yaku
    Zon Kwan: me 2, bye all
    Mickorod Renard: sleep well
    Bruce Mowbray: stay away from the sauerkraut.
    Bruce Mowbray: Good night, Zon.
    Mickorod Renard: nite zon
    Mickorod Renard: Bruce,,what time is it where u are?
    Bruce Mowbray: Mmmm. . . It is now 5:06 p.m. which is 17:06 ---
    Mickorod Renard: I guess its afternoon for you guys
    Mickorod Renard: ahh yes
    Bruce Mowbray: and your time, Mick?
    Mickorod Renard: its 22;06
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    Mickorod Renard: for yaku it was 23;06
    Bruce Mowbray: OK -- So almost time for bed for you.
    Bruce Mowbray: That's too late for me to stay awake.
    Mickorod Renard: I guess so, although I stay up late
    Mickorod Renard: I thought you didnt sleep much Bruce?
    Mickorod Renard: I can say that my sleep patterns are returning to normal now
    Bruce Mowbray: I try to get in about 7-8 hours every night, actually.
    Mickorod Renard: after several years
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh -- well, that's good.
    Mickorod Renard: thats very good bruce
    Mickorod Renard: more than me
    Bruce Mowbray: yes, one of the advantages of retirement.
    Bruce Mowbray: although I am not able to take naps throughout the day -- impossible for me to sleep while the sun shines.
    Mickorod Renard: yes, i get up earlyish for work,,usually around 6;45
    Bruce Mowbray: used to do that every day.
    Mickorod Renard: I can nap on wednesday afternoons
    Bruce Mowbray: for about 40 years.
    Alfred Kelberry: 6:45 is tough
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I can nap anytime.
    Mickorod Renard: well,,its habit for me now
    Mickorod Renard: but I dont go to bed early either
    Bruce Mowbray: but -- didn't you say that your sleep patterns were "off" for a while?
    Alfred Kelberry: mick, collecting sleep debt during the week? :)
    Alfred Kelberry: you must be in a student mode :)
    Mickorod Renard: my sleep pattern was very poor,,i wouldnt get to sleep until 3 in the morning,,and couldnt saty in bed once awake
    Mickorod Renard: so I couldnt catch up either
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes, I had the exact same problem....
    Mickorod Renard: I would read and read until I dropped
    Bruce Mowbray: and the doctor finally put me on Lorazapam. . .
    Alfred Kelberry: sleep drug?
    Mickorod Renard: yea, i managed without, and seem to have sorted myself out now
    Bruce Mowbray: I'm definitely an insomniac. . . but the meds have helped tremendously.
    Mickorod Renard: sleep is so important to stay stable
    Bruce Mowbray: Yeah, Lorazapam is a mild benzodiazapine -- like Valium but not as strong.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Bruce, i know the cure for insomnia--get some sleep
    Mickorod Renard: he he he
    Bruce Mowbray dies from laughing....
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, it must be frustraiting, bruce. half asleep / half awake.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: great ani, Bruce
    Rhiannon Dragoone: enough champagne and you'll sleep,, all right
    Rhiannon Dragoone giggles at Bruce's remark
    Alfred Kelberry: i remember a movie with pachino
    Alfred Kelberry: i think it was called insomnia
    Alfred Kelberry: this is how i imagine it :)
    Alfred Kelberry: quite surreal
    Alfred Kelberry: but his case was probably more severe
    Rhiannon Dragoone: have to go, everyone;
    Rhiannon Dragoone: tc of bruce, don't let him tp drunk
    Mickorod Renard: I watched that inception again today,,,i am not so sure about it now
    Bruce Mowbray: Well, I suppose that every case is different. . . but I'd gone three nights without sleep - and my doctor was so concerned that he came to my home and medicated me right here.
    Alfred Kelberry: right: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0278504/
    Mickorod Renard: bye Rhi
    Mickorod Renard: take care
    Rhiannon Dragoone: bye Mick
    Alfred Kelberry: bye, rhia
    Bruce Mowbray: Bye Rhia!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: bye boxy
    Rhiannon Dragoone: bye Bruce
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Happy New Years again!
    Mickorod Renard: and u
    Rhiannon Dragoone waves and poofs
    Alfred Kelberry: bruce, wow! 3 nights
    Alfred Kelberry: that's heavy
    Bruce Mowbray: Fortunately, my doc was/is also a personal friend.
    Mickorod Renard: Yak is bak
    Bruce Mowbray: He realized that I was not capable of holding a thought for more than a few seconds. . . and came to help.
    Mickorod Renard: he he
    Bruce Mowbray: wb, Yaku.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: only with Pocket metaverse
    Mickorod Renard: yaku cant sleep
    Alfred Kelberry: actually, a funny thing. when i stay awake for a long time, i get a sort of floating feeling, which is rather nice :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Did our talking about insomnia keep you awake, Yaku?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i am below my pillow;)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: blanker
    Alfred Kelberry: wb, yaku :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: blanket
    Bruce Mowbray: either that, or your feet are on backwards, Yak.
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh THAT pillow. I thought you meant the cushion.
    Mickorod Renard: wow, i used to do that as a kid,,with a torch,,cos then I could carry on reading without my mum telling me to switch the light off and go to sleep
    Bruce Mowbray: yes, I remember it well.
    Mickorod Renard: i guess electricity was expensive in them days
    Mickorod Renard: I would read superman comics too
    Mickorod Renard: can you remember those adverts on the back page for xray vision glasses?
    Bruce Mowbray: Do you guys remember the "Classic Comic Books"
    Bruce Mowbray: OH yes, I remember the x-ray vision ads.
    Mickorod Renard: yes, too right
    Mickorod Renard: i always wanted some..for obvious reasons
    Bruce Mowbray: also the 90-pound weakling ads (which I relate to closely)
    Mickorod Renard: oh yes
    Alfred Kelberry: i liked tin-tin
    Mickorod Renard: also lots of other things,,i seem to recal jetex motors
    Bruce Mowbray: Don't remember that one.
    Mickorod Renard: i have a good collection of tin tin
    Mickorod Renard: but in french
    Bruce Mowbray: ?me doesn't remember tin tin. . . perhaps I'm suppressing that memory.
    Alfred Kelberry: tin-tin is the best adventure comics :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Mmmmm.
    Mickorod Renard: tin tin was more european bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh -- That would probably explain it.
    Mickorod Renard: herge's adventures of tin tin
    Bruce Mowbray: Well, guys, this has been good. but I need to finish writing a letter to a friend in prison now.
    Bruce Mowbray: May you all be well, sleep well, and have a Happy New Year.
    Mickorod Renard: I have a nice phto somewhere when i was reading tin tin in tibet whilst on a small rowing boat in the himalayers,,and there was an earthquake
    Mickorod Renard: bye bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: OH my!
    Mickorod Renard: take care
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i hate writing on a cellphone
    Bruce Mowbray waits to hear more of this story.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and a quake in Chile again
    Mickorod Renard: well, i was recovering from dysentry
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Night
    Mickorod Renard: nite yaku
    Bruce Mowbray: an earthquake -- Yes, a big quake in Chili this afternoon.
    Mickorod Renard: ouch
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh dear! So, all at once: dysentary, boat, earthquake, and Himalayas.
    Bruce Mowbray: How old were you?
    Mickorod Renard: I was in the anapurnas ,,in a place called pochara
    Mickorod Renard: maybe spelt better
    Bruce Mowbray: In Tibet. . . with your parents?
    Mickorod Renard: no, i must have been in my late twenties
    Bruce Mowbray: OK -- I thought because you were reading tin tin -- you were still a child -- but I was wrong.
    Mickorod Renard: and i had been taken to this posh island on a lake
    Mickorod Renard: he he
    Bruce Mowbray listens.
    Mickorod Renard: cos i was on my last legs
    Mickorod Renard: I had to be taken there hung over a bicycle, like a dead cowboy draped over a horse
    Bruce Mowbray: mercy.
    Mickorod Renard: I woke up several days later in the lap of luxury
    Bruce Mowbray: Did yuou think you'd died and gone to heaven?
    Mickorod Renard: and then spent a few days recovering
    Bruce Mowbray: oh -- not quite heaven, then.
    Mickorod Renard: it never occured to me at that time
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Mickorod Renard: although I recall thinking I was going to die
    Bruce Mowbray: WHAT a memory.
    Bruce Mowbray: Fortunate that you were among caring folks who knew what to do to help you.
    Mickorod Renard: but the earthquake i mistook for an express train
    Bruce Mowbray: wow.
    Mickorod Renard: but I should have realized that you dont get express trains in the mountains up there
    Bruce Mowbray: Amazing.
    Alfred Kelberry: wait, sorry. i missed that. what earthquake?
    Bruce Mowbray: So you were also a bit delerious.
    Mickorod Renard: being on a lake suppressed the quake feeling for me
    Bruce Mowbray: Mick had an earthquake in Tibet when he was in his 20's and had dystenary -- and . . .
    Mickorod Renard: I was on the lake in a boat when there was an earthquake
    Bruce Mowbray: was taken to a posh island for recovery (on a bike, thrown over like on a horse).
    Mickorod Renard: but i recall it cos i had been reading tin tin in tibet at the time
    Alfred Kelberry: oh my, tibet
    Alfred Kelberry: fancy
    Bruce Mowbray: tin tin in tibet -- (Has a nice ring to it.)
    Alfred Kelberry: hehe
    Mickorod Renard: it was afunky holiday
    Alfred Kelberry: in french?
    Bruce Mowbray: Wow.
    Mickorod Renard: that one was an english version
    Alfred Kelberry: what did you do in tibet?
    Mickorod Renard: well, i wasnt exactly in tibet, more nepal
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, nepal
    Alfred Kelberry: climbing mountains?
    Mickorod Renard: I did a variety of things
    Bruce Mowbray: He also drank the water. . . . (uh oh).
    Mickorod Renard: i should have gone climbing but the plane couldnt land on the glacier cos of bad weather
    Alfred Kelberry: that's a wonderful adventure, mick
    Mickorod Renard: which was fortunate as the ones before me all died
    Bruce Mowbray: Alas. That was a fascinating story, Mick. But now I really must get back to the letter to my friend in prison.
    Bruce Mowbray: May you both be well.
    Bruce Mowbray: Bye for now.
    Alfred Kelberry: i had a chance to go to nepal, but... well, it didn't work out
    Mickorod Renard: ok Brcie
    Mickorod Renard: nite nite
    Mickorod Renard: maybe another day Alf?
    Mickorod Renard: its never too late
    Alfred Kelberry: perhap
    Alfred Kelberry: s
    Alfred Kelberry: yea
    Mickorod Renard: I was thinking of doing the little trains that go into the indian mountains
    Alfred Kelberry: hope is what keeps us going
    Mickorod Renard: he he
    Mickorod Renard: little trains seems less energetic, which now suits me
    Alfred Kelberry: little trains?
    Mickorod Renard: yes, small steam trains,,on narrow guage track
    Mickorod Renard: laid by the british in india a 100 years ago
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, right
    Alfred Kelberry: is it safe? :)
    Mickorod Renard: i think so
    Mickorod Renard: they have the odd land slide
    Mickorod Renard: but its a lot less tiring than walking
    Alfred Kelberry: walking would be nice there, i imagine
    Mickorod Renard: I prefer to do things that are less organised
    Mickorod Renard: the walking is a nice adventure, but you have to be fit
    Alfred Kelberry: i did quite a bit of walking in the alps - it was a sheer joy :)
    Mickorod Renard: wow that sounds nice
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, very nice
    Mickorod Renard: I love the smells and sounds and so forth
    Mickorod Renard: and of course the views
    Alfred Kelberry: yes... i always get a soft smile when i remember that :)
    Mickorod Renard: was it a while ago?
    Alfred Kelberry: um, not really... 2 years
