    The Guardian for this meeting was Agatha Macbeth. The strange questions are by Agatha Macbeth.


    Wol Euler blows a speck of dust from your forehead. Anybody home?
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi Wol :)
    Wol Euler: hello aggers
    Agatha Macbeth: Just getting a glass of red
    Wol Euler: nice outfit!
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, let me show you the hat
    Wol Euler: please do :)
    Wester Kiranov: hi
    Wol Euler: hello wester
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello
    Agatha Macbeth: Only 150L from Bare Rose
    Agatha Macbeth: Couldn't resist it :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Nice hair btw
    Wol Euler: ty :)
    Wol Euler: only 180L from Mr Freud
    Wol Euler: couldn't resist :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, not Mr Jung then?
    Wol Euler: oh, wait, perhaps that is who I meant
    Wol Euler: wanted to get the joke out before it went stale
    Agatha Macbeth: *GIGGLES* :)
    Agatha Macbeth thwops you
    Agatha Macbeth: How are you Wester?
    Wol Euler: "Mr. Sigmund" so I was close
    Agatha Macbeth: (sry, forgot you'd arrived)
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah yes, Mr S
    Agatha Macbeth: Very good place
    Wester Kiranov: I'm fine. Thought I'd check out a slot with some other avs around, occassionally
    Agatha Macbeth: Mm, yes, we don't often see you at this time
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Wester Kiranov: lately i haven't been to any other sessions but my own
    Wester Kiranov: and they are pretty quiet as well
    Agatha Macbeth: Guess we all need a break occasionally
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, do you have a 1AM slot?
    Wester Kiranov: yes, monday 1 am
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Agatha Macbeth: We were discussing ways to try and get the 1AMs better organised in the WG
    Wol Euler: ah
    Agatha Macbeth: Didn't seem to come up with much tho, sadly
    Agatha Macbeth: Other than perhaps use some kind of rotation system
    Wester Kiranov: a rotation system? how?
    Agatha Macbeth: I think they meant try moving the guardians around so more people got the 1AMs
    Wol Euler raises an eyebrow.
    Agatha Macbeth: Lia is going to do another survey of who does what soon
    Wol Euler: I like my 1am's
    Wol Euler: hello storm
    Storm Nordwind: Hi all :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Well exactly, you are doing three atm
    Wester Kiranov: hi storm
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Storm
    Agatha Macbeth: Which is hardly fair
    Agatha Macbeth: Or seems so
    Storm Nordwind notices the girls are looking glamorous, and he may need to change :)
    Wol Euler: well, I could give up one or more of them, but 1am is the time that works best for me
    Agatha Macbeth: Bring back your female Av Storm :)
    Agatha Macbeth: I'd love to meet her
    Wester Kiranov: it's a good time if you're an European
    Storm Nordwind: Which one?
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes Wol, it's a perennial problem it seems
    Agatha Macbeth: Just one of those things that never seems to have a solution whichever way it falls
    Wol Euler: on the other hand, the reason I took them is that there wasn't anyone else around who was able or willing ...
    Wol Euler: maybe that's changed.
    Agatha Macbeth: It all came from an email Arch sent to the group
    Wol Euler: I remember
    Agatha Macbeth: Wondering if the 1AMs were a good idea
    Storm Nordwind nods
    Agatha Macbeth: But what's the alternative?
    Wol Euler: I took that rather personally, I'm sorry to say, we had a bit of a discusson about it before I left for NY
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, I didn't know about that :(

    Wol Euler: nah, no worries, I doubt that any permanent harm was done on either side
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Wol Euler: but I found myself being really attached to that idea, and more forceful and less open than I should
    Agatha Macbeth: Sera Qt :)
    Qt Core: Hi all, 'sera Agatha
    Wester Kiranov: hi qt
    Wol Euler: hello qt
    Storm Nordwind smiles at Qt
    Agatha Macbeth: Is it me, or do you look different?
    Qt Core: me ?
    Storm Nordwind: Looks different to me too
    Agatha Macbeth: You seem.....er.......shorter :p
    Storm Nordwind: Semi-ruthed
    Qt Core: strange, last change in my outfit was glasses, but only in rl ;-)
    Wol Euler: looks ok to me :)
    Agatha Macbeth ponders 'semi' ruthed
    Wester Kiranov: (taking a better look)
    Qt Core: oh, i played with the appareance a couple weeks ago, but just a couple % here and there, maybe i even not saved them :-)
    Storm Nordwind sees Qt as a female avatar with a male skin - which is very odd
    Agatha Macbeth: Different, certainly
    Qt Core: interesting hat, Agatha, btw it toke a lot to change from a sphere
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, it did that for me too :P
    Agatha Macbeth: Wide brim
    Agatha Macbeth: Doubles as an umbrella ;-)
    Wol Euler: :)
    Storm Nordwind: And pigeon protector
    Agatha Macbeth: That too
    Qt Core: great when the sun shine too much, even if in black it may become hot
    Agatha Macbeth: Doesn't wearing black make you hotter?
    Agatha Macbeth: Cos white reflects
    Qt Core: was there a topic before the pause ?
    Agatha Macbeth: We were just rabbiting on about the 1AM slots
    Agatha Macbeth: Talking shop
    Agatha Macbeth: You can suggest one if you like QT :)
    Qt Core: i always loved them, at least the two in the weekend when i can attend them
    Wol Euler: ever wanted to be a guardian?
    Wol Euler: erm, to take a session I mean?
    Agatha Macbeth: There ya go, getting more popular by the minute
    Qt Core: wanted yes, but as the situation at home is always quite volatile can't assure my presence so better not to
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Better safe than sorry
    Qt Core: something like that :-)
    Qt Core: some days ago i realized i never went to the 7pm session... ok, it is at 4am in my tz but still with my awful sleeping patterns as of lately i my try it sometime
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Wol Euler: go for it
    Wol Euler: I attended one or two when I was in NY
    Agatha Macbeth: I have been to a couple
    Qt Core: too easy doing that changing your tz, Wol ;-)
    Wol Euler chuckles.
    Wester Kiranov: i've never been to 7 pms either
    Agatha Macbeth: I've only been there on a weekend, when I was already in SL and thought 'what the hell'
    Wol Euler: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Lucky we don't have many here from Australia and NZ
    Qt Core: but then we lack they perspective on things
    Agatha Macbeth: Hmm
    Agatha Macbeth: I always wanted to see the Southern Cross :)
    Wol Euler: on the boat, then.
    Agatha Macbeth: Boat?
    Wol Euler: to the south
    Wol Euler: I assumed you wouldn't walk
    Wester Kiranov: swim?
    Wol Euler: ah, I see. *get on the boat
    Agatha Macbeth: Does anyone travel by boat these days?
    Agatha Macbeth: Except on cruises
    Storm Nordwind: and ferries
    Agatha Macbeth: Mm
    Qt Core: :-) two cruises in past five years
    Wol Euler: nice :) where did you go?
    Agatha Macbeth: I think I'd quite enjoy that
    Qt Core: and maybe another next year in northern new seland
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, you can take a picture for me then :p
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Wester Kiranov: :)
    Qt Core: i'll try
    Agatha Macbeth: Grazi :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Has the jet lag worn off yet Wol?
    Wol Euler: hard to say :)
    Wol Euler: on experience I'd say that it cannot possibly have done
    Agatha Macbeth: Of course, you're ill anyway :(
    Wol Euler: but there is often a kind of phony-not-lagged early on when you think it's over or not going to happen
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Wol Euler: then hits you even harder a day later
    Qt Core: hi Arch
    Wester Kiranov: hi again arch
    Agatha Macbeth: Sorry Wester, it seems you have come to an unusually quiet session :p
    Wol Euler: hello arch
    Storm Nordwind: Greetings Arch :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Arch (again)
    Archmage Atlantis: yikes, finally
    Agatha Macbeth: Nice wings :)
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, we could sing a Giblert and Sullivan operetta
    Storm Nordwind is reminded of Dogma for some reason
    Agatha Macbeth loves Giblert and Sullivan
    Agatha Macbeth: :p
    Archmage Atlantis: Dogma of the church? or Dogma the movie?
    Storm Nordwind: The movie
    Archmage Atlantis: Right
    Storm Nordwind is never reminded of the church
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Wester Kiranov: :D
    Archmage Atlantis: I spent lots of hours searching in relgious writings for answers, after science did not provide any
    Agatha Macbeth: With most people, it's the other way round
    Wol Euler: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: It was useful.......I learned that we don't get answers
    Agatha Macbeth: Or only wrong ones :p
    Storm Nordwind: Sometimes we learn that the questions are illusory
    Archmage Atlantis: yes to both of you, Aggers, Storm
    Archmage Atlantis: The only lession that never felt false was to love each other, the planet, this universe and all in it, and what we find to exist
    Agatha Macbeth: Hear hear
    Wester Kiranov: I think it is very true. the practical application can be difficult, though
    Archmage Atlantis: That and color co-ordination, of course
    Wester Kiranov: :P
    Archmage Atlantis: I often wonder if we could "see" in the higher ranges of color.....or the lower ones....would our art change
    Agatha Macbeth: Jackson Pollock's wouldn't
    Archmage Atlantis: Good point
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: *grins" at Aggers
    Wester Kiranov: the way it looked would certainly change. But I do not think anything essetial to art would
    Storm Nordwind: Turn the question round... is the art of color blind people different?
    Wol Euler: many colourblind people don't know that they are...
    Agatha Macbeth: Good question Storm, wouldn't know
    Wester Kiranov: oliver sacks had this great story about a painter who became colorblind after an accident
    Archmage Atlantis: And how many of you know we have blind people here in sl
    Wol Euler: actually I met one! that was quite a surprise
    Wester Kiranov: totally colorblind, he could not remember or imagine colors anymore
    Wol Euler: wow
    Archmage Atlantis: They see through an interface unlike the one I do
    Agatha Macbeth: Good heavens
    Wester Kiranov: and it did change his art, after a a very difficult transition period
    Agatha Macbeth: Right Wester...interesting
    Wester Kiranov: it is actually quite lovely to read
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Archmage Atlantis: For an even more amazing look at who we are.....there is the movie The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
    Agatha Macbeth: Don't know it Arch, sorry
    Wol Euler: hello eliza
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes you do Agger, at least now you do
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Liz :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Hello Eliza
    Wester Kiranov: hi eliza
    Qt Core: Hi Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Everyone, nice to see you :) Welcome back from retreat Wester
    Wol Euler: oh!
    Wol Euler: were you in Assisi?
    Wester Kiranov: yes, I was
    Wester Kiranov: it was wonderful
    Wol Euler: great
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Wol Euler: will there be a theme session about it, as on previousretreats?
    Wester Kiranov: I don't know
    Archmage Atlantis: Did you meet St. Francis
    Agatha Macbeth: That would be good
    Wester Kiranov: There were only five people on the retreat, and one of them doen't like SL
    Agatha Macbeth: Oops
    Wol Euler: huh
    Wol Euler: who was that?
    Wester Kiranov: St'Francis felt quite real
    Wester Kiranov: and I had a good conversation with some olive trees as well ;-P
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: did they give you recipe suggestions?
    Agatha Macbeth smiles twice
    Eliza Madrigal: Pema said the food was amazing
    Wester Kiranov: The food was very goo, yes
    Wester Kiranov: * good
    Agatha Macbeth: Goo?
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Agatha Macbeth: Thought you meant porridge
    Archmage Atlantis: Loves olive oil
    Agatha Macbeth: So does Popeye
    Archmage Atlantis: not much of it grown in FL
    Eliza Madrigal: :) I just made that here
    Eliza Madrigal: porridge, that is. Hah
    Archmage Atlantis: well not any, actually
    Wester Kiranov: hi again boxy
    Agatha Macbeth: Is this a box I see before me?
    Eliza Madrigal: and the weather was pleasant?
    Eliza Madrigal: it looked like a really wonderfully open spot from the pictures
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    Alfred Kelberry: hi :)
    Agatha Macbeth pats Boxy
    Qt Core: Hi Alfred
    Alfred Kelberry: furry woly girl :)
    Wester Kiranov: the weather was very good as well. And the landscape. and the people. and the converstions.
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Wester Kiranov: *conversations
    Archmage Atlantis: Boxy ???.....I don't think it is Aggers doing the touching.......sit
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Wester Kiranov: not conversions :P
    Alfred Kelberry: *purrs*
    Eliza Madrigal: hahaha
    Eliza Madrigal: What, no conversions?
    Agatha Macbeth: Didn't play rugby then?
    Alfred Kelberry: intimate?
    Eliza Madrigal laughs so hard
    Wester Kiranov: well, I did consider joining one of those monasteries for a moment
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Wester Kiranov: they have very GOOD ones there, you know
    Eliza Madrigal: Oooooh
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, monasteries with good food and wine
    Wester Kiranov: too bad I'm not a Christian
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) Yes Arch
    Agatha Macbeth: Who needs restaurants?
    Eliza Madrigal giggles.... yes
    Archmage Atlantis: Aggers, appears you have a pet
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Eliza Madrigal: but there is something wonderful about the 'idea' of monastery life
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll take him for a walk later
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, it is the separation from life as we know it
    Eliza Madrigal: so devoted to practice that one forgets the difference between contemplation and everything else maybe


    Poof! goes the Boxy....
    Agatha Macbeth: Did Alf crash?
    Archmage Atlantis: When a monastic life is lived as a gift of peace to others, I accept it as valid..........when it is only an escape, there is more to be learned........and I doubt that Alf crashed
    Wol Euler: relogging, cache clearing again
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww
    Wol Euler: (he is)
    Eliza Madrigal: but I guess monastery type all day practice is part of what pausing continually is about
    Qt Core: they do it the opposite way, pausing to take care of mundane things
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: I think I would have liked it when a large part was the hand copying of important boods
    Archmage Atlantis: *books
    Agatha Macbeth: b Alf
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    Agatha Macbeth: w+w
    Agatha Macbeth: ?
    Agatha Macbeth: Whatever
    Eliza Madrigal: guess eventually it all blends... like susan (I wandertoo) said about the bells... that eventually one might not need them :)
    Alfred Kelberry: woly?
    Qt Core: but then there is a great spectrum of monastic life from pure contaplmatice with no more contact with the world to more open and involved in daily life outside the monastry walls
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, here you are :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Why does a psychic need a doorbell? :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Good question, Aggers
    Storm Nordwind: Easy to answer
    Agatha Macbeth: :p
    Eliza Madrigal nods @ Wester
    Agatha Macbeth listens
    Eliza Madrigal listens
    Eliza Madrigal: :D
    Agatha Macbeth: snap
    Eliza Madrigal: nspa
    Storm Nordwind: You have eyes but can you see everything?
    Agatha Macbeth: No
    Storm Nordwind: Are they always looking in the right direction?
    Agatha Macbeth: No
    Storm Nordwind: Are they always open
    Agatha Macbeth: No
    Storm Nordwind: Same with being psychic
    Agatha Macbeth: I see
    Agatha Macbeth: (no pun intended)
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Agatha Macbeth: Thank you Storm :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, for those who claim to be psychic....open, directed, and all seeing
    Eliza Madrigal: well maybe the issue is that we think we know what it means to be 'psychic', etc.. like there is one way...
    Qt Core: time to go
    Eliza Madrigal: like for degrees of monastery life too :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Bye Qt
    Qt Core: bye all and have fun!
    Eliza Madrigal: ah bye Qt, nice to see you
    Agatha Macbeth: Ciao Qt
    Wester Kiranov: bye qt
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes agree, Eliza
    Wol Euler: bye qt, take care
    Archmage Atlantis: we think we are more than we are
    Agatha Macbeth watches Qt moonwalk
    Eliza Madrigal: or less or just different, hehe
    Agatha Macbeth blows in Wol's ear
    Archmage Atlantis: To claim I know I am less, or to claim I know I am different......to me that is claiming to be or know more than others
    Wol Euler: sorry
    Agatha Macbeth: :p
    Eliza Madrigal: hm, don't you, about some things?
    Storm Nordwind catches the gust through the other ear
    Agatha Macbeth: (!)
    Alfred Kelberry: hi
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Boxy :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Boxy
    Alfred Kelberry: guys, does my av look ok?
    Archmage Atlantis: dang robodog
    Eliza Madrigal: Are you having SL issues? I've had to redo every time I sign on
    Agatha Macbeth: Where are you?
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh
    Eliza Madrigal: Hm, you are not quite 'right', but let me rebake
    Agatha Macbeth: You have re-boxed

    Alfred Kelberry: but it's fine for me
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, people see different shape on my av
    Wol Euler: I see your black skin showing through the boxes
    Storm Nordwind: me too
    Alfred Kelberry: :(
    Eliza Madrigal: yes I see that
    Storm Nordwind: underlying av too big
    Alfred Kelberry: weird
    Wol Euler: are you wearing *all* of that outfit? even the bodycrusher AO?
    Alfred Kelberry: why not for me
    Alfred Kelberry: yep
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, wipe the cache and reinstall
    Agatha Macbeth: Which viewer are you using Alf?
    Alfred Kelberry: v2
    Eliza Madrigal: we're all psychic
    Storm Nordwind: I knew you were going to say that
    Agatha Macbeth: I keep having to rebake when I rez I've noticed
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe
    Agatha Macbeth: but I'm using phoenix
    Eliza Madrigal: you too? Hm...
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes
    Eliza Madrigal: and what about chat lag?
    Storm Nordwind: Your ARC is 6389 Agatha - so no wonder!
    Agatha Macbeth: No, none of that TG
    Agatha Macbeth: Eh?
    Archmage Atlantis: Rebirth from ashes
    Eliza Madrigal: the only time I have no chat lag is when I type about chat lag itself
    Storm Nordwind: avatar rendering cost
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh

    They don't call me the phantom sim-slower for nothing!
    Agatha Macbeth smiles @ Arch
    Agatha Macbeth: Got to go now peeps, I haz da log
    Wol Euler: aww
    Wol Euler: bye agatha, take care
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Agatha, thanks
    Storm Nordwind: Bye bye
    Agatha Macbeth: Take care <3
    Wester Kiranov: i'm leaving too see you guys around
    Wol Euler: bye wester, take care
    Eliza Madrigal: Nice hearing a bit about the retreat, and saying Hello, Wester!
    Storm Nordwind will head off to the coast
    Eliza Madrigal: I should go too... am cooking today. I blame the pizza session...
    Storm Nordwind: hehe!
    Storm Nordwind: yum
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Wol Euler: heheh
