    Qt Core: (i briefly wondered if it would help letting that 15 yo av reading all those emails when we (have to) push him/her away
    Agatha Macbeth: Well, fortunately s/he won't be reading them :p
    Agatha Macbeth: But it is an unfortunate situation
    Agatha Macbeth: (Hi Mick, Ara)

    Agatha Macbeth: Does Maltese have different forms for 'you' like tu and vous in French?

    arabella Ella: lei
    Agatha Macbeth: Right
    arabella Ella: int or inti is you first person singular or plural
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, right
    Mickorod Renard: what about feminine and masculin?
    arabella Ella: another easy one?
    arabella Ella: you does not have M or F but the verb does
    arabella Ella: another easy one is 'mela' pron mella or similar to italian for apple
    arabella Ella: it could be at the start of a sentence just a filler like 'well then'
    arabella Ella: or it could mean therefore
    Agatha Macbeth: Right
    Agatha Macbeth: Hiya Eos

    Wol Euler: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Well Fahrt means journey in German doesn't it?
    arabella Ella: yes
    Eos Amaterasu: that's okay, there's an entire Wagner Opera that bears a similar designation
    arabella Ella: and i like their number six
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh yes!
    Wol Euler: wahlfahrt is a pilgrimage
    Agatha Macbeth: Same as in Latin

    Agatha Macbeth: Indeed

    Ok, come back again
    arabella Ella: oh they have just opened the renovated shrine in assisi
    arabella Ella: saw it on the news a few days ago
    Mickorod Renard: wow
    Agatha Macbeth: Great
    Eos Amaterasu is feeling bad about not going, but happy for Mick and Gen and the others
    arabella Ella: apparently it was closed for some years for renovations
    arabella Ella: oh arent you going Eos?
    Agatha Macbeth: From what I heard, I get the impression Malta was most peoples' favourite retreat yet
    Wol Euler: halifax was very nice
    Wol Euler: excellent food
    Wol Euler: (sorry to be so prosaic)
    arabella Ella: thank you that is a lovely complement and it will be rather difficult to have a repeat
    Agatha Macbeth pushes Wol
    arabella Ella: no worries Wol less pressure on me
    arabella Ella: and i dont like pressure
    Agatha Macbeth: No reason why not!
    Eos Amaterasu: Malta was great - each retreat has its special je ne sais qua
    arabella Ella: yes no doubt
    Agatha Macbeth nods. I can imagine
    arabella Ella: would be lovely to have one in glastonbury some day during some vacation
    arabella Ella: maybe during festival?
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, I know it well :))
    Agatha Macbeth: And the mud
    arabella Ella: LOL
    Mickorod Renard: if we could find each other amongst the crowds and mud
    Agatha Macbeth smiles at the thought
    arabella Ella would love to get to know the mud too :)
    Agatha Macbeth: You and Mick could wrestle in it!
    arabella Ella: why me and mick?
    Agatha Macbeth: Erm...
    Mickorod Renard: oooooo
    arabella Ella: he would be too strong for me
    arabella Ella: find someone my size pls
    Agatha Macbeth: Nah, he's a pussycat
    Mickorod Renard: and knackered
    arabella Ella: LOL
    Agatha Macbeth polishes Mick's head
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    arabella Ella: i have heard so much about the mud
    arabella Ella: really makes me keen to get to know and meet it personally
    Agatha Macbeth: That and hippies are what Glas. is best known for
    Wol Euler: people come from all around hte world to wallow in it.
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes
    arabella Ella: yes lots of friends of mine go regularly
    Agatha Macbeth: Not that the locals seem very impressed by it all
    Agatha Macbeth: They usually hide in their houses
    arabella Ella: maybe you could organise a retreat there some day Aggers?
    Agatha Macbeth: Organisation isn't my strong point, sadly
    arabella Ella: owwwwww
    arabella Ella: Mick would surely help you
    Agatha Macbeth: I can't even organise myself!
    arabella Ella: :)
    Mickorod Renard: I am the worst
    arabella Ella: nice way of getting out of it
    Agatha Macbeth: Perhaps Gaya could help
    Mickorod Renard: remember, we are british
    Agatha Macbeth: How can we forget :(
    arabella Ella: three PaBers in UK
    arabella Ella: no retreat there yet
    Agatha Macbeth: Gaya is adopted :p
    Mickorod Renard: whats that saying Ags,,something about a culender
    Eos Amaterasu: btw, retreat schedule thru 2012 is at http://wiki.playasbeing.org/Retreats
    Agatha Macbeth: I have one of those in the kitchen I think
    Agatha Macbeth: Thx Eos
    Eos Amaterasu: Ireland coming up.....
    Agatha Macbeth: Bejasus
    Eos Amaterasu: Zen will organize it (not Aggers!)
    Agatha Macbeth: Which part of Ireland?
    arabella Ella: good thing too
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes
    Eos Amaterasu: Ireland: http://www.drumalis.co.uk/
    Agatha Macbeth: I hear the burkah is now officially banned in France
    iwandertoo Resident: best to everyone. waves.
    Agatha Macbeth: Thx eos
    arabella Ella: yes some girls were arrested today it is sad i think
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye for now Sue
    Wol Euler: bye susan
    arabella Ella: bye Susan
    Agatha Macbeth: It's ridiculous
    Mickorod Renard: bye iwandertoo
    Wol Euler: agreed
    Qt Core: not really banned, a big fine or some "remedial lesson" in civilization and 30000 euro fine to the one that imposed it to you (if any)
    arabella Ella: i think ppl should be free to wear what they wish
    Wol Euler: and my religion is the state's business because ... ?
    Agatha Macbeth: I still don't see the reason, do they think it will deter fundamentalism or something?
    Agatha Macbeth: Because it will have the opposite effect
    Mickorod Renard: I think so
    Wol Euler: it's just a sign of panic, aggers, the politicians are sucking up to the racist right
    Qt Core: thinking abot the (mostly) old woman in itraly wearing black shawl on their heads...
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh (sigh)
    arabella Ella: their excuse is that they cannot identify ppl like that
    arabella Ella: but it is an excuse
    Agatha Macbeth smiles @ Qt
    Mickorod Renard: I think they feel the threat of a Muslim takover more so,,its historical I think
    Agatha Macbeth: It's crazy
    Wol Euler: O.O
    Agatha Macbeth: Crazy in the 21st century certainly
    arabella Ella: oh and anyone arrested with a burka in france must then attend lessons to become more 'french'
    Wol Euler: crazy in a country where around 92% of the populatoin is nominally christian too :)
    Agatha Macbeth: That's just plain racist Ara...
    Qt Core: next thing we'll see for italian citizenship, italian language esamination and prosciutto eating contest
    Agatha Macbeth: Hehe
    arabella Ella: it is stimulus and response Skinner type conditioning
    arabella Ella: i like that Qt how can i join?
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Agatha Macbeth: Er, who is Skinner?
    Mickorod Renard: I am english and was expected to attend french culture lessons
    Agatha Macbeth: (Excuse my ignorance)
    Wol Euler: B.F. Skinner, behavoural scientist/psychologist
    Agatha Macbeth: Thx, I'll wiki him
    Mickorod Renard: I thoought he was a comeadien
    Wol Euler: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B._F._Skinner
    arabella Ella: Skinner is the guy who got dogs to salivate and pigeons to do tricks with a reward or was it Pavlov?
    Agatha Macbeth: That's Frank Skinner
    Mickorod Renard: Frank?
    Agatha Macbeth sighs
    Agatha Macbeth: Think that was Pavlov Ara
    arabella Ella: B.F.
    Agatha Macbeth: Certainly the dogs
    arabella Ella: Skinner is similar to Pavlov with his methods and ideas
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, ok
    Mickorod Renard: does he have any cats?
    Agatha Macbeth: God knows what he makes them do if he has
    Eos Amaterasu excuses himself - must make supper....
    arabella Ella: bye Eos!
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye for now E
    Eos Amaterasu: thanks and bye!
    Wol Euler: bye eos, take care
    arabella Ella: lovely to c u
    Mickorod Renard: bye Eos
    Mickorod Renard: take care
    Mickorod Renard: Eos,,you can tp
    Mickorod Renard: its easier
    Agatha Macbeth: Is Eos in Italy already?
    arabella Ella: he said he isnt going to assisi
    Wol Euler: he's not going
    Mickorod Renard: looked like he was walking back to canada
    Agatha Macbeth: Well it seems a little early for supper in Nova Scotia
    arabella Ella: tea?
    Wol Euler: five hours back, 7pm
    Agatha Macbeth: Perhaps they call it different names
    Agatha Macbeth: To me supper is something you have after 10pm
    arabella Ella: gtg too
    arabella Ella: bye for now lovely to see you all
    Wol Euler: bye ara, take care
    Qt Core: bye ara
    Agatha Macbeth: Sahha Ara, take care
    Mickorod Renard: yea, supper for me is something before bed
    Agatha Macbeth: Right
    Mickorod Renard: bye Area
    Mickorod Renard: Ara*
    arabella Ella: grazzi u sahha
    Agatha Macbeth: Area?
    Mickorod Renard: ciao
    Agatha Macbeth: First name Disaster?
    Mickorod Renard: he he he
    Mickorod Renard: shh,,that was my real name
    Wol Euler: or Clearthe
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, I didn't see Electra leave, did she crash?
    Agatha Macbeth groans
    Wol Euler: what?
    Mickorod Renard: I must leave now,,I have things to sort out
    Wol Euler: bye mick, sort well
    Wol Euler: bubble sort is fastest for small sample sizes
    Mickorod Renard: thanks for the fun chat
    Agatha Macbeth: BFN Mick enjoy yer sort
    Qt Core: bye Mick
    Mickorod Renard: byeeeeeee
    Mickorod Renard: ooo
    Agatha Macbeth: Ooo?
    Wol Euler: somebody must have been tickling his feet
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, now who'd do that?
    Wol Euler: nobody I know, surely.
    Agatha Macbeth: Exactly
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Druth
    Wol Euler: hello druth
    Agatha Macbeth: I have that dress in my inventory somewhere
    druth Vlodovic: hi guys
    Agatha Macbeth: How are you Druth?
    druth Vlodovic: :? are we that strapped for topics?
    druth Vlodovic: lol, "it's warm but raining"
    Agatha Macbeth: Everybody left just before you arrived :(
    druth Vlodovic: when I saw people lingering I figured that everyone was either afk or in the middle of a hot topic :)
    Wol Euler: prosciutto-eating contests
    Agatha Macbeth: No, I was just querying something in IM, sorry
    Agatha Macbeth: That too
    Qt Core: :-)
    druth Vlodovic: proscuitto?
    Wol Euler: qt can explain :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Italian nom-nom
    Qt Core: qt can eat
    Agatha Macbeth: I prefer lasagne myself
    Wol Euler: [14:05] arabella Ella: oh and anyone arrested with a burka in france must then attend lessons to become more 'french' [14:05] Wol Euler: crazy in a country where around 92% of the populatoin is nominally christian too :) [14:05] Aggers (agatha.macbeth): That's just plain racist Ara... [14:05] Qt Core: next thing we'll see for otalian citizenship, italian language esamination and prosciutto eating contest
    Agatha Macbeth remembers it well
    Qt Core: it take a lot of time to make lasagne from scratch, ok, even months for prosciutto starting from the pig, but usually you don't go all the way, just to the nearest shop
    Wol Euler: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: That is certainly where I would go :p
    druth Vlodovic: ok, I may just have to read the log, why are proscuitto's non-christian?
    Agatha Macbeth: Er...
    Qt Core: the opposite, druth
    Wol Euler chuckles.
    Agatha Macbeth: Now I'm lost
    Wol Euler: that was a sample form the midle of a long and complicated conversation
    Wol Euler: context would help
    Agatha Macbeth: Sure would
    Qt Core: i suggested it as a hard test to non christian for entering/ getting a permit or citizenship in italy
    Qt Core: in a weird satirical way, that is
