    The Guardian for this meeting was Fefonz, originally, but since he could not come, Pema posted this log, after getting a pointer from Lia.  He took the title from what Wol said, a few lines below.

    Wol Euler: hello aph
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hiya Wol!
    Aphrodite Macbain: oops.
    Wol Euler: eh?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi Bruce!
    Aphrodite Macbain: (I sat in the fountain)
    Aphrodite Macbain: You look cuddly
    Aphrodite Macbain: Wol
    Wol Euler: ah, I see :) missed that
    Wol Euler: and thank you :)
    Wol Euler: I feel cuddly too :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    Wol Euler: I've grown fond of this afvorm
    Wol Euler: *avform
    Aphrodite Macbain: how has your avi life changed now that you're a feline
    Wol Euler: hello bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey Wol, Hey Aph!
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hey Blub
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Wol Euler: well ... it makes me feel quite happy, not that I didn't enjoy being human
    Wol Euler: I feel the smallness and cuddly warmth of this av's fur and shape, and I enjoy them
    Aphrodite Macbain: wonder whether you feel more vulnerable
    Aphrodite Macbain: /thinks that the place feels naked without the Christmas trees.
    Wol Euler: no, I wouldn't say that. Why?
    Wol Euler: (to vulnerability)
    Wol Euler: the trees were nice, they added a layer of protection and shielding to the playgoda
    Bruce Mowbray: and beautiful too.
    Aphrodite Macbain: to me,small soft fuzzy animals always seem vulnerable
    Aphrodite Macbain: like my cats
    Wol Euler: hmmmm, that's interesting :) I think so too, when I am RL-me looking at them; but it doesn't feel that way
    Wol Euler: I feel rather agile and capable in this form, easily able to evade the clumsy humans :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: hmmm maybe that feels that way to small fuzzy animals too
    Wol Euler: of course it helps that there are no predators here :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: my cats have nice sharp claws and can run faster than I can
    Wol Euler: mmhmm :)
    Wol Euler: one thing I have noticed is that other people, especially males, are strongly attracted to this avform sexually :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I enjoyed reading the log from yesterday morning. Looks like this might work
    Wol Euler: I get chatted up more often and more intensely than human-Wol did
    Aphrodite Macbain: interesting maybe I should try one on for size Wol
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: I'll slip you the LM
    Aphrodite Macbain: Do you find them under furries?
    Wol Euler: you can search, yes, but this one is free which is always a good place to start :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Thanks! I might use it for the next exhibition project
    Aphrodite Macbain: Underneath my human-ness I'm just a mammal
    Wol Euler grins.
    Aphrodite Macbain: oops Bruce
    Aphrodite Macbain: what are you; I can't see yet
    Aphrodite Macbain: a flying pig?
    Wol Euler: a bat!
    Bruce Mowbray: A bat is also a furry, you know.
    Aphrodite Macbain: wow. and cute- to some people
    Wol Euler: technically yes, I suppose :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: guaranteed to keep away mosquitos
    Wol Euler: a vampire bat, even!
    Bruce Mowbray: My mother used to chase them with a tennis racket.
    Aphrodite Macbain: hehe
    Aphrodite Macbain: where wre they? in the attic?
    Aphrodite Macbain wonders whether she has a tennis raquet in her inventory
    Bruce Mowbray: Sometimes they'd get inside the house - where we lived in Iowa.
    Bruce Mowbray: That would drive my mother crazxy.
    Bruce Mowbray: but then, many thiings seemed to drive her crazy. . . especially me.
    Wol Euler: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I experienced them at a summer cottage. I was always terrified they'd catch in my hair
    Bruce Mowbray: that's what my mom used to say too.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Juast as well she didn't chase you with a tr.
    Bruce Mowbray: So -- why not just puit on a hat?
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh she DID chanse me with just about everything she could lay a hand on.
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-) not when O was in bed... I put a pillow over my head
    Bruce Mowbray feels more vulnerable as a bat.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Too bad you couldn't fly
    Bruce Mowbray: also less sexually attractive.
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Aphrodite Macbain: not to bats!
    Wol Euler: I'm afraid that I have to confirm the latter :)
    Bruce Mowbray: brb.
    Bruce Mowbray: also I have a building question to ask the two of you.
    Aphrodite Macbain: fly safely
    Bruce Mowbray: brb.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Were you at the last SL retreat Wol?
    Wol Euler: no, I couldn't commit to the times, because of work
    Wol Euler: I do want to attend the next one
    Aphrodite Macbain: the Working Group was trying to come up with better times-perhaps wekends
    Aphrodite Macbain: or 4- 90-minute sessions over 4 days
    Alfred Kelberry: furry girl! :)
    Wol Euler: oh, it wasn't the hour-of-the-clock as such, I just didn't have the time available :)
    Wol Euler: boxy!
    Alfred Kelberry: *purrs*
    Alfred Kelberry: hello, aph and bruce :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hiya beautiful boxy!
    Alfred Kelberry: *giggles*
    Alfred Kelberry: *gets a cardboard blush*
    Aphrodite Macbain: what would work for U Wol?
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Alfred Kelberry: um, is bruce invisible?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Boxy - would you be interested in attending a SL retreeat?
    Wol Euler: well, anything between 1am and say ending at 3pm
    Alfred Kelberry: a think a latex dress would work well here :)
    Wol Euler: go for it
    Alfred Kelberry: :P
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, sorry (brb)
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, i'd like to, aph
    Alfred Kelberry: your horns look like a tiara, woly :)
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Aphrodite Macbain: are there better days/times for U?
    Aphrodite Macbain: boxy? Wol?
    Alfred Kelberry: um, me?
    Wol Euler: friday to sunday is best for me
    Wol Euler: but with a fair bit of warning I could probably make any day
    Alfred Kelberry: i'm with woly
    Aphrodite Macbain: Ok - and you Boxy?
    Alfred Kelberry: same :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: OK. I'll make a note
    Wol Euler: brb
    Bruce Mowbray: any day for me -- except Sunday afternoons.
    Aphrodite Macbain: What are you now Bruce?
    Alfred Kelberry: there's no set time for sl retreat?
    Bruce Mowbray: I am a tree bat -- or a bat tree.
    Aphrodite Macbain: loks like 2 palm trees
    Bruce Mowbray: maybe a bat-tery.
    Aphrodite Macbain: a battery?
    Alfred Kelberry: wb, bruce :)
    Bruce Mowbray: yeah.
    Aphrodite Macbain: snap
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: wow
    Aphrodite Macbain: wooo
    Alfred Kelberry: scary :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: wow nicely navigated. My hair was untouched
    Alfred Kelberry: bruce, you should open a store and sell this bat thing :)
    Alfred Kelberry: woly would buy one :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: who would buy it?
    Alfred Kelberry: :P
    Aphrodite Macbain: ah. wb Bruce
    Aphrodite Macbain: you lost Blub in the process
    Alfred Kelberry: there's been a fire on some factory in holland today
    Aphrodite Macbain: Wol- what or who is Catalope
    Bruce Mowbray: a fire?
    Alfred Kelberry: hope no one got hurt or affected by toxic waste
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh dear.
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, seen on cnn
    Aphrodite Macbain: I wonder if it was arson
    Alfred Kelberry: i doubt
    Alfred Kelberry: machinery goes wrong now and then
    Bruce Mowbray: It wasn't me. I've been at the farm all day.
    Aphrodite Macbain: we had a couple in Canada yesterday- arson was suspected
    Bruce Mowbray: Here at the farm all days yesterday. . .
    Aphrodite Macbain: That's what they all say Bruce. You're now in deep shadow
    Bruce Mowbray feeling strangly guilty -- what is that?
    Bruce Mowbray is overdosing on empathy it appear.
    Aphrodite Macbain: hmmm verrry interesting
    Bruce Mowbray: Boxy didn't do it either -- Boxes do NOT play with fire.
    Bruce Mowbray: Maybe the bat did it.
    Aphrodite Macbain: especially cardboard boxes
    Alfred Kelberry: who would "arson" anything in canada - the land of peaceful merry people? :)
    Alfred Kelberry: bruce, i do sometimes :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bruce did you fall in the tar sands?
    Aphrodite Macbain: peacefyuul? merry?
    Aphrodite Macbain: youi've been watching FOX tv
    Bruce Mowbray: Did I fall in the tar sands. . . .
    Aphrodite Macbain: your head is completely black to me
    Bruce Mowbray: we don't have any of those at the farm.
    Aphrodite Macbain: and yr lower torso
    Alfred Kelberry: aph, not true? :)
    Wol Euler: back, sorry
    Bruce Mowbray: well, that's left over from the bat skin.
    Bruce Mowbray: I look just fine to me.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hmmm. can you wash it off or do you have a bath at the farm?
    Alfred Kelberry: woly :)
    Alfred Kelberry: *touches woly's furry paw*
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi Bertram
    Wol Euler: hallo berti!
    Bertram Jacobus: hi folks ! :-)
    Alfred Kelberry: berty :)
    Wol Euler: there :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bruce has been transforming himself
    Alfred Kelberry: ouch, a friend in holland says the fire is not localized yet and gone to a nearby company building
    Bertram Jacobus: aph - you have a new skin ?! - it´s nice ! :-)
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza!
    Wol Euler: eliza!
    Wol Euler: snap
    Bertram Jacobus: hi eliza
    Alfred Kelberry: you've almost passed us by :)
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe
    Aphrodite Macbain: Do I?
    Alfred Kelberry: ran so fast :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Guys :) not sure why I keep running everywhere..
    Alfred Kelberry: no, eliza :)
    Bertram Jacobus: i´m a bit hindered - am on the laptop - not used to it ... :-)
    Alfred Kelberry: let's set berty free!
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Bert!
    Eliza Madrigal: Wol! :) .... must be a lag... snap comes after that right? hehe
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi Eliza
    Wol Euler: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Aph :)
    Bertram Jacobus smiles ...
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, eliza!
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Bruce!
    Eliza Madrigal zoomed to see what subversive message bruce has on his shirt only to find...
    Eliza Madrigal: sports, alas
    Wol Euler: :)
    Eliza Madrigal grins
    Aphrodite Macbain: depends on the sports
    Wol Euler: or the outer context
    Bruce Mowbray is celebrating Ohio State's victory in the Sugar Bowl last night.
    Wol Euler: perhaps sports are subversive of the gentle, peaceful, still and intellectual context of PaB :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Congrats Bruce and Ohioans everywhere :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: congratulations Ohio state
    Eliza Madrigal: ooooh, there we go
    Bruce Mowbray: GO BUCKS!
    Aphrodite Macbain: sports can be like playing
    Bruce Mowbray: No -- that's Canada that's still and peaceful, remember?
    Aphrodite Macbain: just a little more competitive
    Eliza Madrigal: no I in team, hahah
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Bertram Jacobus: hi mick

    Eliza Madrigal: *blonde
    Wol Euler: hmm, interesting
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes?
    Aphrodite Macbain: are you more sel;f confident?
    Eliza Madrigal: I wouldn't say that...
    Eliza Madrigal: not sure what it is or if I like it :)

    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Aph :)
    Wol Euler: bye aph
    Wol Euler: ooh, nice horns, I hadn't noticed
    Bruce Mowbray: Thanks, Wol.

    Wol Euler: O.O You're already booking the summer? wow.
    Eliza Madrigal: without giving details, I need to plan now
    Wol Euler: ok :)
    Alfred Kelberry: mystery :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: mystery is a glamorous word for baggage perhaps...
    Eliza Madrigal: hahaha
    Wol Euler: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Ok... I should never go blonde in RL... think I am seeing this
    Alfred Kelberry: i thought of mysterious eliza's eyes :)
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Eliza Madrigal: :) I was thinking that I like Wol's new av for that reason...
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, you can go leggy though like in that song :)
    Eliza Madrigal: blinking eyes...
    Wol Euler: ah :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Alf
    Alfred Kelberry: :P
    Alfred Kelberry: hi, krz
    Wol Euler: hello Krzy, welcome to Second Life :)
    Wol Euler: born today
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Krzysiek
    Alfred Kelberry: krz is 20 years old :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Mystery is a glamorous word for ... hmmm, blondes are considered glamorous, brunettes more mysterious ... if there's some logic in that its also pretty mysterious
    Calvino Rabeni: Nevermind :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) tired, Cal?
    Calvino Rabeni: hehe
    Wol Euler grins.
    Calvino Rabeni: Neural nets run wild
    Wol Euler: ***note to the goc, remove Kryzsiek from the log ***
    Alfred Kelberry: why? i think krz should stay
    Wol Euler: he didn't give permission
    Alfred Kelberry: it was a nice little visit
    Alfred Kelberry: um...
    Eliza Madrigal: :) no permission Alf
    Alfred Kelberry: ok
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Wol Euler: quoting or naming wihtout permission contravenes the TOS
    Alfred Kelberry: really?
    Wol Euler: yep
    Wol Euler: what, you thought we asked just out of a spirit of fun?
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, even the 'hi' he gave... though if it had been just us saying hi to his first name, I normally don't worry about that
    Alfred Kelberry: spirit of being fair people :)
    Eliza Madrigal: haha Wol, yes we have a 9 second practice and we like to ask everyone for permission
    Wol Euler: right :)
    Eliza Madrigal: those are our two things :)
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Wol Euler: perhaps we can apply them to RL too
    Wol Euler: walk down the bus asking people for permissoin :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, yes, I needed something else to do! good idea....
    Wol Euler: ha!
    Alfred Kelberry: well, asking to take a pic would be tiresome
    Alfred Kelberry: a quick snap in a desicive moment style would be much better
    Wol Euler: does anyone else keep seeing Boxy's antennae as hairs on the monitor and try to brush them off?
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) @ decisive moments... hm...
    Eliza Madrigal: no that's just you I think, Wol
    Alfred Kelberry: no, they wiggle nicely like metallic antennas
    Wol Euler: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: The Pause That Refreshes is coming up in less than 60 seconds
