    Agatha Macbeth: How long have you been coming to PaB now?
    iwandertoo Resident: 4-6 weeks (?)
    iwandertoo Resident: not sure
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, right
    Agatha Macbeth: Just wondered what brought you here?
    Agatha Macbeth: ie, how you found out about us :)
    iwandertoo Resident: i was wandering and met Stevenaia. we had a conversation for some time and she invited me to PaB.
    Agatha Macbeth: I see
    Agatha Macbeth: I found it completely by accident
    iwandertoo Resident: wandered upon it?
    Agatha Macbeth: Arrived at Hanja welcome centre and went in a random direction
    Agatha Macbeth: and ended up here! :p
    Agatha Macbeth: I didn't have a clue what everyone was doing

    (Often I still don't!)
    iwandertoo Resident: this is how i met Stevenaia...i came to Bieup and met her at her drafting table
    iwandertoo Resident: haha
    iwandertoo Resident: ::)
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Agatha Macbeth: And I often think
    Agatha Macbeth: if I had taken another direction
    Agatha Macbeth: I would never have arrived here in the first place!
    Wol Euler: evening all!
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello :)
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Agatha Macbeth wolhugs
    Agatha Macbeth: Sue and i were just discussing how we each found PaB Wol
    Wol Euler: ah :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Fael introduced you, I think?
    Wol Euler: yes
    Wol Euler: we met by chance in a skins shop and liked each other's avs so we started talking
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: That doesn't surprise me
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Agatha Macbeth: In fact, I remember reading your first session in the logs
    Wol Euler: really? wow
    Wol Euler: I'd have to go back and read them to find out when that was
    Agatha Macbeth: At the old pavilion
    Wol Euler nods.
    Agatha Macbeth: June 2008?
    Wol Euler: ah :)
    Agatha Macbeth: (I think)
    Agatha Macbeth: Sue came here the same way as me, just wandered in :p
    Wol Euler: well, forgive me but that isn't quite how I remember it ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: ??
    Wol Euler: as I recall, you hung about on the balconies for ages, listening in but somehow not coming down to talk to us
        --BELL--
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh yes...
    Wol Euler: I practically had to throw bricks at you to get you to come
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Agatha Macbeth: But I wanted to find out what was going on first
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Wol Euler: (sorry, didn't mean to kill the conversation)
    Agatha Macbeth: You didn't :p
    Agatha Macbeth: So what d'you think of Pab so far Sue?
    iwandertoo Resident: i like listening
    Agatha Macbeth grins
    Agatha Macbeth: Me too, tho I still often don't know what's going on!
    iwandertoo Resident: laughing...yes.
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: me three :)
    iwandertoo Resident: it feels benevolent here
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah well, one day perhaps...
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh it is!
    Wol Euler: definitely
    iwandertoo Resident: and listening to everyone's journey - their way...is helpful
    Agatha Macbeth: When we don't get griefers that is
    Agatha Macbeth: Plenty of journeys here...
    iwandertoo Resident: are there griefers?
    Wol Euler: yep
    Wol Euler: not many, but they exist
    iwandertoo Resident: i don't think i have experienced a griefer yet
    Agatha Macbeth: Yeah, Liz got one last week
    Agatha Macbeth: but they are few and far between (fortunately)
    Wol Euler: my impression is that there are far fewer than there were say 3 years ago
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe they moved on
    Wol Euler: perhaps griefing declines as it gets harder?
    Agatha Macbeth: Could be
    Wol Euler: 3 years ago you could crash a sim by getting 25 people to stand on it :)
    iwandertoo Resident: how has it become harder?
    Wol Euler: that's one way :) it no longer works
    Agatha Macbeth: Sometimes you still can :p
    Wol Euler: the software is getting more stable and robust
    Agatha Macbeth: Yeah, they'll probably close down just as LL perfect it! :D
    Wol Euler: heheh
    Wol Euler: nice outfit, btw
    Agatha Macbeth whispers: ty :)
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Agatha Macbeth didn't whisper
    Agatha Macbeth: Just tryin to remember where I got it
    Wol Euler: 's ok I already found the maker's profile
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh I remember...
    Agatha Macbeth: it's that place with the lesbian hangout next to it
    Wol Euler grins.
    Wol Euler: that narrows it down very little actually!
    Agatha Macbeth: Well, true
    Agatha Macbeth: I think Sabine somebody is the owner
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, the Harem, that's it
    Wol Euler: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: That's the club I think, not the shop :)
    Wol Euler: yep
    Wol Euler: the store is C&P :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Right
    Wol Euler: C&S sorry
    Agatha Macbeth: Not C & A
    Wol Euler: nope
    Wol Euler: though C&A are pretty good actually
    Agatha Macbeth: Mmmm
    Wol Euler bites her tongue to cut short a really dull conversation
    Agatha Macbeth thinks of the mindfullness of C & A

    Wol Euler: how do they pay for it?

    Zen Arado: it's becoming a monk really (or nun)
    Agatha Macbeth: A bit like the place in Kung Fu then?
    Zen Arado: can't remember Kung Fu

    Agatha Macbeth: I'm just a gal who can't say no
    Wol Euler: it was a trivial quesiton, on the lines of "is there more wine?"
    Zen Arado: yes was a good answer then
    Agatha Macbeth: Now THAT should be answered 'yes'
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Aphrodite Macbain: but a punch line nevertheless
    Agatha Macbeth: Some punch eh?
    Aphrodite Macbain: yeh or beer
    Agatha Macbeth: Ali would have been proud
    Aphrodite Macbain: baba

    Zen Arado: an ingcognito punch
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I push with no results so I have stopped
    Zen Arado: incognito hard to spell
    Alfred Kelberry: it's a form of a valentine, i guess :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Indigo?
    Zen Arado: don't know :)
    Wol Euler: you have to get the very tip of his nose, aph :)
    Wol Euler: the tiny brown bit
    Alfred Kelberry: *runs around*
    Aphrodite Macbain: yech
    Agatha Macbeth: That's his nose
    Zen Arado: evasive action
    Wol Euler: and you might need to zoom in on him to hear it, becuase the sound is generated from where he is at the time :)
    Alfred Kelberry: haha
    Alfred Kelberry: zen :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: stop boxy!
    Zen Arado: hard to hit a moving cute little nise
    Agatha Macbeth: Cor lumme squire e's dan a ranna

    Zen Arado: leting go of negative emotions
    Zen Arado: is a good practice
    Agatha Macbeth: It's a good trick if you can do it
    Zen Arado: just let them come and go without holding on to them
    Zen Arado: (thought for the day)
    Agatha Macbeth: They seem to hold on to *me*!
    Zen Arado: Ringu Tulku said that
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll phone him
    Zen Arado: and then the joyful ones have space to manifest
    Zen Arado: seems sensible?
    Agatha Macbeth: Sensible yet difficult maybe
    Zen Arado: yeh it's a practice
    Agatha Macbeth: Practice makes perfect

    Wol Euler: that's where we started :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Mmm
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, I'm very curious
    Eliza Madrigal: (and great picture Boxy)
    Zen Arado: very simple and direct
    Eliza Madrigal: was there a specific topic, Zen?
    Zen Arado: yes
    Zen Arado: 'The ground , path and fruition'
    Zen Arado: a text
    Zen Arado: I'll have to look it up
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, do
    Eliza Madrigal: "simple and direct" is high praise from a zen guy :))
    Zen Arado: but he answered a lot of general questions too
    Wol Euler excuses herself. I have some errands to run before logging off, and it's coming up to midnight.
    Wol Euler: goodnight all, take care
    Eliza Madrigal: Night Wol :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye Wol, be happy
    Zen Arado: nite Wol

    Eliza Madrigal: aw
    Agatha Macbeth: Please continue Zen
    Zen Arado: he has some teachings here :http://www.bodhicharya.org/ringu-tul...scribed-talks/
    Zen Arado: only think I find they really worship the teachers in Tibetan Buddhism
    Zen Arado: they all prostrate in front of him when he enters
    Eliza Madrigal: yes that bothers a lot of Westerners ...
    Zen Arado: yeh
    Zen Arado: it's my conditionng
    Eliza Madrigal: It bothers some people for a minister in a Christian church to be up on a stage...
    Zen Arado: yeh
    Zen Arado: or have music in a church
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Eliza Madrigal: or >gasp< a guitar
    Zen Arado: what?
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe
    Zen Arado: a guitar?
    Zen Arado: sacrilege
    Eliza Madrigal: just remembering back to days when people began to suggest maybe every song didn't need to be from the hymnal
    Zen Arado: they wouldn't let us in Boxy
    Zen Arado: yeh me too
    Zen Arado: and it all went happy clappy
    Eliza Madrigal: but the point about teacher worship is interesting
    Agatha Macbeth: Can't beat a happy clap
    Eliza Madrigal: you didn't feel awkward?
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe Agatha
    Zen Arado: well...I don't have to do prostratins
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Zen Arado: not from a wheelchgair
    Eliza Madrigal: loophole
    Zen Arado: might fall out :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: He does a 3-point turn instead :p
    Eliza Madrigal grins
    Zen Arado: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I was reading about karmic links..
    Zen Arado: maybe I should write about my visit
    Zen Arado: yes?
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Put it on your Guardian space in the wiki
    Eliza Madrigal: and I guess that the worship (though I really wouldn't call it that) is about that... that one's 'true teacher' comes and there is a refuge taken/acknowledgement, etc
    Eliza Madrigal: I'd love to read that Zen
    Zen Arado: it's a good practice...writing..
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes!
    Zen Arado: whether anyone reads it or not
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Eliza Madrigal: but it helps to write when you think there is a reader
    Zen Arado: yeh
    Agatha Macbeth: I find i'm reading the wiki far more lately
    Eliza Madrigal: a captivated audience
    Eliza Madrigal: you are?
    Agatha Macbeth: Mm
    Zen Arado: captive audience?
    Agatha Macbeth: Looking for the hidden bits
    Zen Arado: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: ah :))
    Eliza Madrigal: I like to see when people add things to their pages they like
    Zen Arado: yeh the interesting details
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, I wish people would use their contribution space more...
    Zen Arado: I'l do it tomorrow
    Zen Arado: start it anyway
    Eliza Madrigal: (sorry zen I was mixing the guru and sense of audience)
    Eliza Madrigal: will keep checking zen
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm actually addicted to 'recent changes'
    Agatha Macbeth: Is that still in?
    Zen Arado: better get some sleep then
    Eliza Madrigal nods... every morning I hit that button :)
    Zen Arado: before my big writing task ;)
    Agatha Macbeth: Funny, I thought Cal took it out to speed things up
    Eliza Madrigal: so if someone updates a hidden page, I catch it
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) Bye Zen, night
    Agatha Macbeth: Good :)
    Zen Arado: nite :)
