2011.04.03 13:00 - Toward the future ofPaB, beyond year three

    The Guardian for this meeting was Maxine Walden. The comments are by Maxine Walden.  

    This meeting was the final scheduled event in the weekend of celebrations of PaB's third anniversary.  And we thought it would be nice to think of the future of PaB during this session.  So, folks gathered just after the Art as Being spectacular meeting at the Art Dome.  About 20 avis showed up, all excited and bubbly and as you may gather we continued our excitement through the session, which to my view was the major theme.

    Bruce Mowbray: Hi again, Kamu -- or is it Camus?
    kamu2011 Resident: HI, Bruce, it´s just Kamu
    Bruce Mowbray: Just joshing with you. Is this your first time at the fountain?

    Eliza Madrigal: :))) I think we have a few just making their way over from the dome
    stevenaia Michinaga: we always wait for the future, don;t we?
    Alfred Kelberry: riddle :)

    Riddle Sideways: Howdeee Wol
    Wol Euler: ty
    Maxine Walden: Yes, we have spent so much lovely time appreciating the past three years...
    Maxine Walden: now we might want to give some time to wondering, dreaming, into the future
    Agatha Macbeth: Mmm
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, it'll be fun to read in 3 years! :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: a tiem capsule
    Agatha Macbeth: We can do the dreaming bit on tuesday max :p
    stevenaia Michinaga: *time
    Eliza Madrigal: ooooo, true... time capsule!! yes
    Alfred Kelberry: haha
    Maxine Walden: What thoughts, dreams, inspirations come to mind for the next three, or maybe more years in PaB and in our community?
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Ara :)
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, so be careful of what you say, it may just happen :)
    Agatha Macbeth: You haven't done that for a while...
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    arabella Ella: Hiya
    Riddle Sideways: do we get flying cars
    Maxine Walden: haha, Riddle
    oO0Oo Resident: lineage of freshness Maxine
    Alfred Kelberry: in sl they've been for years :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: that's so 60's riddle
    Riddle Sideways: that what I is
    Maxine Walden: Care to say more O, re lineage of freshness?
    Alfred Kelberry: i wonder if pema will change his hair in 3 years :)

    We all were hearing parrots and other jungle sounds which were both wonderful to hear, but also a bit distracting in our efforts to think about the future, but also to slow our minds down from all the stimulation we had been experiencing over the weekend.

    Agatha Macbeth: Sounds like I'm in a zoo
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah Agatha
    Aphrodite Macbain: I wonder whether we will get older
    Alfred Kelberry: tropics :)
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Agatha Macbeth: A tropical zoo then...
    Alfred Kelberry: aph, i hope not too older
    oO0Oo Resident: to remain open to all possibility... even after a long time in a form Maxine
    Maxine Walden: tropical, topical zoo perhaps
    Alfred Kelberry: wiser maybe
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm
    Agatha Macbeth: Typically tropical
    Agatha Macbeth waits for a guy in a loincloth to swing past
    Riddle Sideways: hope the time book will be finished
    Alfred Kelberry: sam, it's a good proposition
    Maxine Walden: I am having an intereesting association with the tropical sounds, as if reaching back to primordial life, in the verdant jungle of our pasts...
    Aphrodite Macbain looks at Ping and asks if she has anything to add
    Eden Haiku: @Maxine, my cat is taking a great interest in this session :)
    Maxine Walden: so maybe also what do we anticipate as we swing into the future; maybe the jungle comes with us to some degree
    Alfred Kelberry: is it possible to finish the time book?
    Maxine Walden: :), Eden
    Pema Pera: sure, Alf :-)
    Pema Pera: in a couple months
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, good :)
    Bleu Oleander: beginning the 4th year
    Alfred Kelberry: i thought maybe it's like a long journey book with no clear destination :)
    Maxine Walden: may be difficult to imagine our evolutions as they usually, evolutions, come quietly, often unanticipated
    Riddle Sideways: has clear as space
    Aphrodite Macbain: what if anything do we want to do differently?
    Bleu Oleander: (probably need to clean up the pavilion :) )
    stevenaia Michinaga: wonders what Pema thought 3 years later would bring when he started the group
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes - clear the decks for action
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi Pila
    Eden Haiku: Eliza was talking about slowing down... I like that.
    Agatha Macbeth: Aloha Pila

    Alfred mentions' Moon's grass, referring to a field of lovely green grass and flowers, signs of spring that Moon had created at a couple of our weekend spaces.

    Alfred Kelberry: i'd like moon's grass to be present on say friday's sessions :)
    Maxine Walden: (to bleu, step one of the future, to clean up the pavilion? :)) )
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Pila :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'd like Moon's grass in RL
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Pila ;)
    Bleu Oleander: yes, Maxine :))
    arabella Ella: hi Pila!
    Alfred Kelberry: aph, that too :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Pila!
    Maxine Walden: Yes, we did speak about slowing down this morning in goc didn't we?
    Agatha Macbeth: Just don't smoke it
    Alfred Kelberry: pila-san! :)
    Riddle Sideways: step 2 mess up pavillion more and often
    Eden Haiku: Aloha Pila :)
    Maxine Walden: hi, Pila
    Bleu Oleander makes note to contact cleaning crew :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: was that this morning...!?
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Aphrodite Macbain: he he riddle
    Eden Haiku: step 3 clean it up again :) Sisyphe rolling up his rock on top of the hill...
    Alfred Kelberry: aph, yes
    Maxine Walden: Aph, time warps doesn't it with so much going on.
    Bleu Oleander: haha Eden
    Aphrodite Macbain: seems like days
    Wol Euler nods.
    Bruce Mowbray: r for about nine months, but others here have been coming for three years.
    Eliza Madrigal: 'we have to believe sys is happy'
    Aphrodite Macbain: den- these are sounds from your garden
    Aphrodite Macbain: Eden
    Bruce Mowbray: We meet every six hours, around the clock and around the world -- and have done that for 3 years.
    Agatha Macbeth: Some garden
    Wol Euler nods to Eliza
    Eden Haiku: hehe
    Maxine Walden: ah, yes!
    Agatha Macbeth: Haven't heard a peacock for ages
    Aphrodite Macbain: stake that claim!
    Eden Haiku: That was a peacock?
    Riddle Sideways was not going to be a guardian because did not think would be around that long
    Maxine Walden: :))
    Agatha Macbeth: Yep
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Alfred Kelberry: pema, could you please say a few words about the future of pab?
    Riddle Sideways: now am thinking might be around much more
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Bleu Oleander: :)) Riddle
    Pema Pera: the future is open, boxy . . .
    Eden Haiku: listening to Pema on the spot
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: BTW the minutes of the working group meeting have been sent to everyone
    arabella Ella: apologies but gtg bye for now!
    Wol Euler: bye ara, take care
    Bleu Oleander: by Ara
    Sunshine Vayandar: byebyee Ara ;)
    Riddle Sideways listening to pema on the spot
    Pema Pera listening too
    oO0Oo Resident: "evolutions, come quietly, often unanticipated" "the future is open"
    Aphrodite Macbain: which spot?
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Maxine Walden: Maybe we need to let the sounds and events of the present settle a little before we can let our minds, hearts open to the future..
    Bruce Mowbray: Good timing, then, for the drop to begin in one minute.
    Alfred Kelberry: archy :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Arch :)
    Pema Pera: Steve asked what I had expected three years ago -- nothing, really, I just thought it would be fun to try and see . . . so here we are, unexpectedly :-)
    Maxine Walden: yes, Bruce, let's do so at the pause
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Arch
    Riddle Sideways: Hey Arch
    Eliza Madrigal: yes nice timing, thanks for pointing that out Bruce
    stevenaia Michinaga: are you saying "be quiet" Maxine?
    Aphrodite Macbain: It seems hard to even imagine my own future let alone PaB's
    Alfred Kelberry: pema, still trying and seeing :)
    Maxine Walden: not at all, Steve!
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: giggles
    Aphrodite Macbain: shshsh
    Aphrodite Macbain: (to the parrot)

    So in the pause, as we quieten down and the tropical sounds so a bit, a cloud of butterflies fills the pavilion space, to which several of us respond.

    Aphrodite Macbain: ohhhh
    Eden Haiku: Wow butterflies!
    Riddle Sideways: and I saw the bomber death planes turning into butterflies above our nation
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;))
    Aphrodite Macbain: thank you for the flutterbys

    And Eliza brings up once again the theme of slowing down, which she had brought up at the 8am goc meeting.

    Eliza Madrigal: I keep trying to think how to express what I didn't do a good job of this morning... re slowing down...
    oO0Oo Resident: nice thought riddle :)
    Maxine Walden: care to share more, Eliza?
    Riddle Sideways: "woodstock"
    Wol Euler listens curiously
    Bleu Oleander listens to Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: my sense of slowing down has to do with appreciating and making room, not reducing anything wonderful going on....
    Eliza Madrigal: *love* all the parties and comraderie and spontaneous chats in the village.... we are blooming ...
    Agatha Macbeth: We are stardust
    Sunshine Vayandar listens too
    Eliza Madrigal: so it was just something to sort of 'say' not necessarily 'implement'
    Aphrodite Macbain: what could you have done differently Eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) though having pauses in guardian sessions is a nice idea
    Eliza Madrigal: Nothing, Aph..
    Aphrodite Macbain: what about using a talking stick?
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, i have a tshirt that says "go slow" - i feel very positive when i wear it :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: go slowly...
    Eliza Madrigal: no :)) as I said...isn't something I can fully articulate or am suggesting as a thing to do :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) in SL Alf?
    Agatha Macbeth: Allez plus tard
    Bleu Oleander: the "slow PaB movement"
    Alfred Kelberry: everything looks a bit more... lively and colorful when i do slow down
    Eos Amaterasu: "enoughness in action"
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, rl
    Aphrodite Macbain: maybe we can type more slowly...
    Maxine Walden: We also wondered this morning whether just bringing to attention our need to 'slow down' at times, might be of value...to let us know that more space and time might be available
    Wol Euler: :=
    oO0Oo Resident: ;) Eos
    Alfred Kelberry: aph! i love this idea :)
    Bleu Oleander: like the slow food movement in some ways?
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-) It also helps with accuracy boxy!
    Pila Mulligan: it is rare in SL to see avis gathered together like this maintain a coherent thread of discussion, without numerous digressions and side threads -- but here it is
    Bleu Oleander: exactly Luci :)
    Alfred Kelberry: i find myself often in a rush to type out a thought
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes and I make many typos when I'm rushed
    oO0Oo Resident: slow food ~ appreciation
    Alfred Kelberry: pila :)

    And the thought of a 'slow PaB movement', sort of like the Slow Food movement comes to mind

    Eden Haiku: Love the slow PaB movement!
    Eliza Madrigal: yes really hope to be heard that way... sometimes I hope to make room for those hesitant to speak...or for someone to answer something... it is very hard (for me)
    Maxine Walden: :)
    oO0Oo Resident: having enough
    Eliza Madrigal: yes :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: enough said?
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, when it happens i drop my thought and let myself to listen :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes :)
    Archmage Atlantis: I have a question....perhaps one that mathmatics is ready to reveal to us who are less insightful........the question is "what is chaos" and how do I live a meaningful life in it
    Eden Haiku: Yes, don't worry Eliza, I think the bubbling energy will stay. BUt slowing down is something i do need as others too I suppose. Just to be more connected to the ground, to ourselves, to our hearts :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi Calvino
    Wol Euler: hello cal
    Pema Pera: I think we all need it, the slowing down

    Pema brings up slowing down in terms of the 9 second pauses

    Maxine Walden: hi, Cal
    Pema Pera: hence the 9 secs
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Cal
    oO0Oo Resident: Calvino! :)
    Wol Euler nods.
    Alfred Kelberry: archy, tough one
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi everyone :) Full house!
    Eden Haiku: Yes, the 9 seconds grounding system. I do forget it so many times ;(
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: chaos theory is a useful source for metaphor for living
    Agatha Macbeth: Sure is
    Aphrodite Macbain: out of chaos comes order
    Riddle Sideways: Arch, bring that question to Tues 7am
    Pila Mulligan: bye Luc
    Alfred Kelberry: eden, it sounds like you're grounded for 9 sec :)
    Maxine Walden: ah...
    Alfred Kelberry: *feels the slowness appearing*
    Riddle Sideways: apreciates
    Eden Haiku: Aggers is charming beautiful and cute, I completely agree!
    oO0Oo Resident: Aggers is delightful!
    Alfred Kelberry: *nods* :)
    Eliza Madrigal: she is!
    Wol Euler: :)
    Agatha Macbeth bows
    oO0Oo Resident arrows
    Archmage Atlantis: Creation of diamonds...forged in stars....we look in awh
    Maxine Walden: we are close to another pause...another opportunity ...
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Agatha Macbeth slaps 0 round the head
    oO0Oo Resident: lol
    Agatha Macbeth: :p
    Alfred Kelberry: moon's grass anyone?
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Agatha Macbeth puffs away
    kamu2011 Resident: What is this moon´s grass?
    Aphrodite Macbain: I must go and do some rl yoga
    Alfred Kelberry: moon is a person who created a beautiful meadow
    Eos Amaterasu: poof

    Bleu Oleander: need to go as well
    Wol Euler: a portable meadow :)

    Archmage Atlantis: A bit of galactic matter
    Archmage Atlantis: The sun
    Alfred Kelberry: pema, may i ask if you practiced the 90 sec break on your work meetings?
    Archmage Atlantis: And that I can conceirve of them
    Wol Euler: hello zon
    Archmage Atlantis: A bit of what am I
    Alfred Kelberry: zon :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi zon ;)
    Zon Kwan: hey all
    Pema Pera: under all circumstances, when I remember, Alf
    Maxine Walden: Feels to me that we are still a bit jazzed from the weekend...
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Zon
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Zon :)
    Eos Amaterasu: but privately, not in the group?
    Alfred Kelberry: pema, on your own or as a group you all stop and... being silent?
    Agatha Macbeth: Now we have Zon and Sun all we need is Zen
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Pema Pera: nono, by myself, and not outwardly :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: doug Sosa has experimented with using PaB pauses in his sustainability work
    Archmage Atlantis: All are with us Aggers
    kamu2011 Resident: Have to go, it´s been pleasure to meet you, and have small moment to slow down.
    Pema Pera: and not silently either
    Pila Mulligan: bye Kamu
    Eliza Madrigal: nice to meet you as well Kamu
    Maxine Walden: bye kamu
    Wol Euler: bye kamu, go slowly
    Bruce Mowbray: Bye, Kamu!
    Pema Pera: yes, doug had a nice way to express that
    Pila Mulligan: love the shirt :)
    oO0Oo Resident: bye Kamu :)
    Riddle Sideways: coworkers eventually get use to the gong every 15 minutes
    kamu2011 Resident: I will.
    Eos Amaterasu: really, Riddle?
    Riddle Sideways: well boss did not
    Pema Pera: second hand Pabbing
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Pema Pera: is that legal?
    Eos Amaterasu: if you get used to it you don't pay attention to it
    Eliza Madrigal: hmm
    Alfred Kelberry: eos, good point
    Eos Amaterasu: therefore, "lineage of freshness", as O said
    Riddle Sideways: hmmmmm, have not gotten that use to it
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Each path is individual......to hear what is outside the path one follows.....it is distracting
    oO0Oo Resident: love the boredom ;) and savour its deliciousness
    Alfred Kelberry: it what often happens in a relationship... people get used to and stop paying attention
    Eos Amaterasu: yes, find that fresh open spot in your own heart, Arch
    Archmage Atlantis: Nod
    Eliza Madrigal: :::breathes deeply:::::
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Bruce :)
    Pema Pera: it's interesting to do the 9 sec while talking with someone -- as doug pioneered
    Pema Pera: not stopping to talk
    Pema Pera: but stopping to be the subject
    Pema Pera: let the talking do the talking
    Pema Pera: and the listening do the listening
    Agatha Macbeth: Where is Doug these days?
    Alfred Kelberry: pema, did your interlocutor ever notice the 9 sec?
    Pema Pera: not that I know of
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: i think it'd show in the eyes
    Eos Amaterasu: being interrogated to extract the 9 seconds from him?
    Pema Pera: hehehe
    Wol Euler: I assumed it was during phone conversations, interesting.
    Alfred Kelberry: woly :)
    Pema Pera: cross eyed, watching my watch
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Pema Pera: during RL conversations as well
    Agatha Macbeth watches the watcher
    Alfred Kelberry: you can do a lot of 9 sec during a phone talk :)
    Eos Amaterasu: watches the spinning top
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Pema Pera: wobbling
    Pema Pera: wobbling
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: well, the future of pab looks bright to me
    Pila Mulligan: maybe it is a bit comparable to when you yawn -- you do it on your own and it is taken as okay by those around you
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Pema Pera: perhaps not by your boss?
    Alfred Kelberry: ha! pila, good comparison :)
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: maybe a yawn is the body's way of dropping
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, where is Doug, and ThreeDee, and
    Archmage Atlantis: Those who have gone before
    Pema Pera: there are so many ways of stopping . . . easiest to start outwardly, stopping what you do
    Pema Pera: but more interesting to then stop your self-involvement
    Maxine Walden: perhaps pursuing their own paths...
    Pema Pera: something you can do under all circumstances
    Eliza Madrigal: hmmm
    Pema Pera: dropping what is extra and unnecessary
    Pema Pera: most is
    Riddle Sideways: am sorry to say that 3 years from now we will be asking where some of us are
    Calvino Rabeni: filling with essentials
    Eliza Madrigal: :) nice that we'll miss us
    Wol Euler nods.
    Riddle Sideways: we will miss us
    Maxine Walden: re the dropping....maybe we can actively try to do this at the next pause :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Yeah, whatever happened to Second Life?
    Eos Amaterasu: I am not my camera
    Pema Pera: good question, Aggers!
    Storm Nordwind will not miss us - but glories in what we are now and whatever we will become
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww
    Wol Euler remembers the funeral scene from "Raising Ned Devine" and smiles
    Alfred Kelberry: in3 years sl will look much more realistic :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Who?
    oO0Oo Resident: that soundslike slow cooking to me Storm ;)
    Wol Euler: ah, a great film about a lottery fraud :)
    Wol Euler: ((oops))
    Agatha Macbeth: Shhhhhh
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Eos Amaterasu finds it amazing that there are people in different parts of the world all doing/not doing this here and now
    Riddle Sideways: ok, gotz to go. Thanks for the weekend, the last 3 years and good friends and Play and Being
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Riddle :) thanks
    Alfred Kelberry: *notices his tea got cold*
    Pila Mulligan: bye Riddle
    Storm Nordwind waves
    Alfred Kelberry: dropped all the heat
    Riddle Sideways: by by for now
    Eos Amaterasu: Bye Riddle!
    Sunshine Vayandar: byebyee Riddle
    Maxine Walden: bye Riddle
    Alfred Kelberry: riddle!
    Agatha Macbeth: C ya Rid, bee well :)
    Pema Pera: bye Riddle!
    Eliza Madrigal: :) @ doing/not doing... yes
    Wol Euler: bye riddle, take care
    Archmage Atlantis: tea is a camellian
    Maxine Walden: And maybe we are living out a bit of the future, which involves saying goodbye to aspects of our present and our past
    Agatha Macbeth: Could be
    Maxine Walden: to be open to change, for me, means being open to loss and the unknown new
    Bruce Mowbray: I also need to go now -- but not before thanking every single one of you for a life-enriching adventure.
    Pema Pera: without expectations, strictly speaking, no loss . . .
    Pila Mulligan: bye Bruce
    Pema Pera: bye Bruce, and thank you too!
    oO0Oo Resident: tea roars like a camel lion to Bruce!
    Eliza Madrigal: Thank you Bruce!!
    Wol Euler: bye bruce, thank you for the enrichment you brought too
    Agatha Macbeth: Be careful out there Bruce
    Maxine Walden: thanks, Bruce
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: bye Bruce, and thank _you_!
    Sunshine Vayandar: take care Bruce ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: unknown new...yes that has a fresh feeling Maxine... very green :))
    Calvino Rabeni: looking at what comes as a gift, the cosmic balance sheet stays balanced
    oO0Oo Resident thinks of Paradise Tennant
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Pema Pera: we can still be grateful, perhaps more grateful, if we drop expectations . . . .
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Agatha Macbeth: Paradise regained
    Alfred Kelberry: i've been to ikea today and they're rebuilding a whole section there. i felt a pleasant sense of renewal and excitement. just as i do now :)
    Calvino Rabeni: yes, things disappear, and re-emerge in other places
    Wol Euler laughs.
    Agatha Macbeth: Wow Alf
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Wol Euler: (but in a kind way, I like your enthusiasm and delight)
    Eos Amaterasu is concerned Ikea might clone boxy...
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Wol Euler: or tape him up and put him on a shelf
    Storm Nordwind happily watches the thick snow fall outside his window, but knows with no sadness it will be gome tomorrow
    Maxine Walden: :))
    Pema Pera: Alf the new Ikea logo
    Storm Nordwind: *gone
    Agatha Macbeth: *back
    Eos Amaterasu: Ikea's YouTube representative
    Maxine Walden: :))
    oO0Oo Resident: gone with the wind
    Agatha Macbeth: Pooh
    Alfred Kelberry: i think boxy could fit the corporate profile :)

    Alfred Kelberry: stormy, when do you remove the exhibits?
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: thank you everyone, so much, bye
    Wol Euler: it had fallen into a lake (small pond) and was lying across the surface, there was a bend in its trunk which meant that about a foot of it in the middle was under water
    Agatha Macbeth: Take care Liz
    Eos Amaterasu: bye ,E!
    Wol Euler: upwind of that the lake surface was choppy and rough
    oO0Oo Resident: Bye Eliza
    Wol Euler: downwind there was a long half ellipse of calm water
    Eos Amaterasu: Must also go, bye kind and lovely people!
    Agatha Macbeth waves to all
    Wol Euler: and at the part that was underwater, halfcircles of ripples radiated out into the calm
    Storm Nordwind: Stuff from here can go as soon as. Exhibits in the dome stay till the next exhibition
    oO0Oo Resident: that's you Eos! :)
    Alfred Kelberry: woly, is it a poem?
    Wol Euler: ok

    Calvino Rabeni heads for the kitchen while there are still people here to hear him say he heads for the kitchen
    Wol Euler: moi?
    Agatha Macbeth: There is nose escape
    Wol Euler: bye cal, bon appetit
    Alfred Kelberry: cal :)

    Agatha Macbeth sighs
    Alfred Kelberry: *pats aga's back*
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww, ty :)
    Wol Euler nods
    Agatha Macbeth parrot squawks
    Agatha Macbeth: Shush
    Alfred Kelberry: !
    Alfred Kelberry: oh!
    Agatha Macbeth: I just have to ask Alf - why are your eyes differnt colours?
    Alfred Kelberry: *digs in the inventory*
    Alfred Kelberry: um... for cuteness, i think
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, ok
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: David Bowie must be cute then
    Alfred Kelberry: ouch
    Agatha Macbeth: Jump pad?
    Alfred Kelberry: yep
    Agatha Macbeth: Egad
    Wol Euler: mad?
    Agatha Macbeth: Not bad
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: tada!
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, a bouncy castle
    Wol Euler: he's jumping out of range of the liustener :)
    Alfred Kelberry: oh, right :)
    Agatha Macbeth: You should be in the Olympics Alf
    Alfred Kelberry: poor thing gets confused :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh oh
    Wol Euler: and?
    Alfred Kelberry: ah!
    Alfred Kelberry: premissions
    Wol Euler: it isn't asking for permission
    Wol Euler: I'd grant them if it asked
    Agatha Macbeth: Is all this going in the log?
    Wol Euler: no
    Agatha Macbeth: Good job
    Wol Euler: object text doesn't get recorded
    Alfred Kelberry: it can't do push if it's not owned by land
    Agatha Macbeth: Max will be pleased
    Alfred Kelberry: well, push others that is

    I have a sense that a trampoline of sorts was brought out and the following 'jumps' from Wol are the log's record of such

    Wol Euler: for the record: [14:12] jump pad: peeew! [14:12] jump pad: peeew! [14:12] jump pad: peeew! [14:12] jump pad: peeew! [14:12] jump pad: peeew! [14:12] jump pad: peeew! [14:12] jump pad: peeew! [14:12] jump pad: peeew! [14:12] jump pad: peeew! [14:12] jump pad: peeew! [14:12] jump pad: peeew!
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Wol Euler: and so on ad infinitum
    Agatha Macbeth: Bouncy bouncy bouncy
    Alfred Kelberry: try it aga
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Do I smell?
    Alfred Kelberry: you girls are too heavy :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Well thanks!
    Wol Euler: what is supposed to trigger it?
    Alfred Kelberry: *giggles*
    Agatha Macbeth: Owwww my ears
    Alfred Kelberry: it's the group issue, woly
    Alfred Kelberry: same happened to stormy's pad
    Alfred Kelberry: it's his code in this one
    Wol Euler: but it worked for you, so that can't be the answer
    Agatha Macbeth: Storm had one?
    Agatha Macbeth: He's only little :)
    Alfred Kelberry: stormy's pad worked for him, but not for me
    Alfred Kelberry: he had to deed it
    Alfred Kelberry: then it worked
    Wol Euler: so it only bounces its owner?
    Agatha Macbeth: In-deed
    Agatha Macbeth: Is it transferrable?
    Alfred Kelberry: apparently
    Alfred Kelberry: not yet... wait
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, it is now
    Wol Euler: script is no-copy, no.-mod, no-trans
    Wol Euler: script is still no-copy, no.-mod, no-trans :)
    Alfred Kelberry: duh!
    Agatha Macbeth: It says I can take it
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, script is free
    Agatha Macbeth: Woopee
    Wol Euler: no
    Alfred Kelberry: :/
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, now?
    Wol Euler leans over and traces the kanji figure on Aggers' back with her fingertip
    Alfred Kelberry: it says "new content"
    Wol Euler: no
    Wol Euler: script is marked no copy no mod no trans
    Alfred Kelberry: right, only affects new content then
    Agatha Macbeth: Oooh (shiver)
    Wol Euler: and if I doubleclick it, it's black /empty
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, made a new one
    Agatha Macbeth the Avatar waves back

    The rest of the log refers occasionally to the logger, Max, as the conversation turns to chat among good friends.  And I have to smile as they continue to wave at me, aware that I am 'looking in' as poster of the log.  Many interesting entwinings among us PaBers.

    Wol Euler: actually if we are just playing about, we could save Maxine's fingers and stop the recorded
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes!
    Wol Euler: wb ara
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi Ara :)
    arabella Ella: Hey nice to see you are still here :)
