    The Guardian for this meeting was Yakuzza Lethecus. The comments are by Yakuzza Lethecus.

    Bleu Oleander: hi again :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi there :))
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone :)
    Eliza Madrigal: You have begun to rezz for me now, but still cloudy
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Yaku
    Bleu Oleander: wow Eliza .... very festive dress!
    Bleu Oleander: like a summer party :)
    Eliza Madrigal: thank you.... love this dress
    Bleu Oleander feels very dull in my tshirt and jeans haha
    Eliza Madrigal wishes she could see Bleu in tshirt in jeans (never dull) but remembers from this morning
    Bleu Oleander: haha
    Bleu Oleander: hi Wol
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Wol :)
    Wol Euler: hello bleu, eliza, yaku
    Yakuzza Lethecus: nabend wol
    Bleu Oleander: enjoyed your articles Wol and Eliza :)
    Eliza Madrigal: thanks, yes nice way to start the day
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Korel
    Wol Euler: good, I'm glad that you likedit
    Bleu Oleander: will read more carefully later :)
    Bleu Oleander: hi Korel
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey korel
    Korel Laloix: osiyo everyone
    Wol Euler: hello korel
    Eliza Madrigal: I really loved the angle finding a right word for 'too much of a good thing'
    Wol Euler: was that in "boredom"? don'T remember that
    Eliza Madrigal: no.... I probably phrased it badly but it was from the first article
    Bleu Oleander: was not remembering that either
    Wol Euler: huh
    Bleu Oleander: how was it used?
    Eliza Madrigal: by the time I read something then it gets through various stages of the day who knows.... let me see.... hehe
    Bleu Oleander: haha, me too
    Eliza Madrigal: ah, it was 'no word for something we like too much'
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Wol Euler: a surprising omissoin, or perhaps not
    Wol Euler: we may be the first generation and society that have needed it
    Bleu Oleander: you think?
    Korel Laloix: I dont know...
    Korel Laloix: Rain is good.
    Korel Laloix: too much rain is bad.
    Wol Euler: yeah, I cannot think that my grandmother would ever have had too much of anythin in her life
    Wol Euler: either of them actually
    Korel Laloix: Not to mention relatives visting... smiles
    Bleu Oleander: my grandparents did
    Bleu Oleander: smoking and drinking?
    Wol Euler: ah
    Wol Euler: my grandmohter couldn't afford that :)
    Bleu Oleander: money limits the passions :)
    Korel Laloix: smoking is cheap if you grow your own... smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: that's why people invent religion... to have a moral reason for what they can't do... hehe (kidding)
    Bleu Oleander: haha
    Wol Euler: ther may be some truth to that, eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: it may have a sliver
    Korel Laloix: Idioms are strange though.
    Korel Laloix: Regardless of their meaning.
    Wol Euler: example?
    Korel Laloix: Someone has to come up with them, then they have to gain a life of their own.
    Korel Laloix: Miss the boat.
    Eliza Madrigal nods. It is a refreshing thing about conversing internationally, to see those instances where you've used phrases/words sort of mindlessly
    Korel Laloix: Kick the bucket.
    Wol Euler nods.
    Korel Laloix: Cat got your toungue?
    Korel Laloix: etc... just odd.
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) yes what's with the cat?
    Bleu Oleander: dog got your tongue?
    Bleu Oleander: doesn't sound right
    Wol Euler: nope
    Korel Laloix: One of the harder things to really get a hold of in English.
    Bleu Oleander: bird got your tongue?
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh...
    Bleu Oleander: haha
    Eliza Madrigal: alligator?
    Bleu Oleander: ouch
    Eliza Madrigal: yes what were you doing sticking your tongue out at alligators brilliant? heheh
    Wol Euler: :)
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Eliza Madrigal thinks of Dan Rather
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Dash :)
    Wol Euler: o.O
    Wol Euler: hello dash
    Bleu Oleander: hi Dash
    Dash Earthboy: hey y'all
    Korel Laloix: Dan Rather?.. I know the name... but can't place him.
    Eliza Madrigal: such a strange way of conversing.... like idiom addiction
    Bleu Oleander: Dan Rather ... hehe ... haven't thought of him in a while
    Eliza Madrigal: He was a newscaster for a very long time
    Dash Earthboy: listens
    Eliza Madrigal: and would use the most peculiar phrases
    Bleu Oleander: after Walter Cronkite, right?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey dash
    Dash Earthboy: hey
    Eliza Madrigal: yes think so.... let me get an example...
    Eliza Madrigal: haha, there is a site
    Korel Laloix: OH looked him up.... lol.. that guy.
    Eliza Madrigal: Quotes from CBS Anchor Dan Rather on Election Night 2004 "Do you hear that knocking...President Bush's re-election is at the door." "This race is hotter than a Times Square Rolex." "His lead is as thin as turnip soup."
    Eliza Madrigal: "Ratherisms"
    Wol Euler chuckles.
    Bleu Oleander: haha, an American Original for sure :)
    Eliza Madrigal: "One's reminded of that old saying, 'Don't taunt the alligator until after you've crossed the creek.'"
    Korel Laloix: And a classic example for those that think the US media is biased.... I know who you are talking about now.
    Eliza Madrigal: heheheh
    Korel Laloix: Interesting bio though.
    Eliza Madrigal tries to imagine what an unbiased media would be
    Wol Euler: silent
    Eliza Madrigal: canvas
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Bleu Oleander: haha
    Dash Earthboy: can relate a little as I just scanned in a high school paper edition I wrote for
    Bleu Oleander: unbiased anyone for that matter :)
    Korel Laloix: There will always be bias for sure.
    Wol Euler: there has to be, really: there's just too much reality happening to not select
    Dash Earthboy: yep
    Wol Euler: and selection is of necessity biased: "this is interesting, that is important, those are neither"
    Wol Euler: a non-biased daily newspaper would have to be about 8.7 million pages long
    Eliza Madrigal: yes a forever running commentary
    Eliza Madrigal: it couldn't end, because then there would be first and last, which would be biased coverage
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    Wol Euler: right
    Dash Earthboy: one almost would need an internet to cover it?
    Wol Euler: heheh
    Wol Euler: at least one internet -- but we all know how unbiased those are!
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Eliza Madrigal hums ...so let's call the whole thing off...
    Eliza Madrigal: earlier today I happened upon a spontaneous conversation between two people from countries that don't get along (polite way of saying it) and was so refreshed by their way of dialog, each with strong feelings but meeting in between
    Dash Earthboy: the edition I scanned in had my movie review column and my pieces on the Vote 19 initiative to lower the voting age in Ohio and coverage of an Anti-Vietnam War rally I was participating in...i was such a dull high school student
    Wol Euler: you at least protested, dash :)
    Dash Earthboy: sorry Eliza :)
    Eliza Madrigal: oh, no... there was lag.... just seeing your lines now
    Dash Earthboy: you make a good point
    Wol Euler: say more, eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal: all I wanted to say was that it was one of those 'wow SL is amazing' moments
    Dash Earthboy: cool
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Eliza Madrigal: potentially, guess it always stays potential in some way. hats off to you Dash
    Dash Earthboy: my point was about even the high school paper not being unbiased
    Dash Earthboy: i helped bias it
    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe
    Dash Earthboy: and continued to do that in the college newspaper that came out 5 days per week
    Dash Earthboy: that was a nice job too
    Wol Euler nods.
    Dash Earthboy: oh and in this edition i scanned was one of my friend's columns...he used the penname Toad
    Dash Earthboy: it was a social commentary column
    Wol Euler: I bet that was interesting to read x years later :)
    Dash Earthboy: he got 2 PhDs and ended up homeless in NYC for awhile last decade
    Eliza Madrigal: wow
    Dash Earthboy: yes, and Toad appreciates my finding these memories for him
    Wol Euler raises an eyebrow.
    Eliza Madrigal: what is strange feeling, is to have one's own 'opinions' or influence from an earlier time, come back in a way that feels, hm, wrong, or at the very least, incomplete.... so humbling
    Dash Earthboy: for sure
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Dash Earthboy: i've tried to be consistent
    Dash Earthboy: i still think songs I wrote in my teens are valid decades later
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Bleu Oleander tries to think of someting consistent in her life ....
    Eliza Madrigal looks too...
    Eliza Madrigal: well I still like Paul McCartney, heheh
    Dash Earthboy: for instance, my song from age 14 about Mr. Leary, a bribable city policeman w/a family...so many deputies around here can relate to that one
    Bleu Oleander: just listening to Paul the other day
    Bleu Oleander: singing with Brian Wilson :)
    Dash Earthboy: Paul has always written great songs! even if only silly songs :)
    Wol Euler: true
    Eliza Madrigal: :))))
    Wol Euler whispers "but I preferred Lennon"
    Eliza Madrigal: well the first song I remember loving on the radio was his very worst
    Bleu Oleander: me too Wol
    Dash Earthboy: Lennon is one of my role models
    Dash Earthboy: but he's kinda down the list from others i've mentioned
    Bleu Oleander: worst day in NYC when I lived there
    Eliza Madrigal: I love love Lennon as well, but Paul had me from childhood :)
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Wol Euler: when he was shot, bleu?
    Eliza Madrigal: :( Bleu
    Dash Earthboy: i still sing "Imagine" using an autoharp for accompaniment
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Wol Euler nods. That was the first and perhaps last time I actually heard a newscaster cry
    Dash Earthboy: wow...my mother cheered
    Bleu Oleander: pre-911 of course
    Wol Euler: O.O
    Dash Earthboy: yep
    Dash Earthboy: i've mentioned how hyper-religious my mom was..she never forgave the "more known than Jesus" quote
    Eliza Madrigal: Lennon is difficult for a child.... aside from Imagine. Difficult obviously for a lot of grown ups too
    Dash Earthboy: a comment about recognition
    Wol Euler nods.
    Dash Earthboy: Momma, you had me...but I never had you...
    Dash Earthboy: Lennon could coin a phrase
    Eliza Madrigal: I can imagine, how 'the way things are going, their gonna crucify me' sounded to some, and of course many heard Imagine as communist
    Dash Earthboy: yah
    Yakuzza Lethecus: onigokko
    Dash Earthboy: and yet "getting crucified by the media" (or movie critics) has become a standard phrase
    Wol Euler: ha! I knew something was missing
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Bleu Oleander: yay! it's friday!!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well i was wondering when i was supposed to do it :)
    Eliza Madrigal: haha, notes Bleu cheering for Onigokko
    Bleu Oleander: haha
    Eliza Madrigal: times they are a changing
    Bleu Oleander: still don't like the music
    Dash Earthboy: onigokko
    Yakuzza Lethecus: there is a record to break from bleu´s session :)
    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    Yakuzza Lethecus: stop
    Wol Euler: stop
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but not today :)
    Wol Euler: stop!
    Wol Euler giggles.
    Eliza Madrigal: a moving soundtrack for onigokko would be great
    Bleu Oleander: hahaha
    Bleu Oleander: poetic
    Eliza Madrigal: you're on your way Yaku
    Eliza Madrigal: art as being onigokko, everyone write a new song
    Dash Earthboy: komme gib mir deine hand
    Bleu Oleander: there ya go
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Dash Earthboy: but i like the Lone Ranger theme for onigokko!
    Dash Earthboy: Wagner rocks!
    Dash Earthboy: it is Wagner right?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: then there is a different animation needed
    Bleu Oleander feels like I can go now :)
    Eliza Madrigal: sorry to be so serious today... but earlier discussion brings me to consider some things.... am still musing :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe Bleu
    Wol Euler: rossini actually, says google
    Bleu Oleander: sorry Eliza
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ride of the walkyr´s isn´t quit fitting while running like zombies :)
    Dash Earthboy: dang
    Bleu Oleander: like what?
    Eliza Madrigal: no no that was fun
    Yakuzza Lethecus: valkyries
    Dash Earthboy: i've had one of those days too Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: well, last year I heard someone use an argument I made...
    Eliza Madrigal: to hurt the feelings of another person....
    Bleu Oleander: oh no
    Wol Euler: o.O
    Dash Earthboy: listens
    Eliza Madrigal: and I sat there rather mortified.... that they'd missed the point but I realized so had I in my conveyance :(
    Dash Earthboy: ouch
    Wol Euler gives your hand a squeeze
    Bleu Oleander: happens
    Eliza Madrigal: and it felt like, hm, like if one had hit a bicyclist with a car... out of nowhere, or .. something
    Eliza Madrigal: like there is just so much we can't see
    Dash Earthboy: remembers the old saw "it isn't what you said, it's how you said it" that hurts
    Eliza Madrigal: hmm, yes strange feeling, anyway thanks.... not sure why it hits me so hard today
    Wol Euler nods.
    Dash Earthboy: signs
    Eliza Madrigal: strangely, thinking of nuclear weapons... maybe due to the conversation I mentioned happening upon
    Dash Earthboy: more Eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal: no, just how wonderful when people can converse in openness
    Dash Earthboy: yah...but then again...
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Dash Earthboy: part of my pain today was from open expressions of bigotry and racism
    Ewan Bonham: Hi Folks
    Dash Earthboy: hey Ewan
    Bleu Oleander: hi Ewan
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey ewan
    Ewan Bonham: ㋡
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Ewan :)
    Wol Euler: hello ewan
    Eliza Madrigal: onigokko
    Eliza Madrigal: stop
    Wol Euler: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Bleu Oleander: could be the shortest on record?
    Dash Earthboy: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: there ya go
    Wol Euler: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: halfigokko
    Bleu Oleander: so a record after all today :)
    Wol Euler cheers!
    Bleu Oleander: *•.¸('*•.¸ ♥ ¸.•*´)¸.•*
    Bleu Oleander: woo hoo
    Bleu Oleander: ¸.•*(¸.•*´ ♥ `*•.¸)`*•.¸
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Woooohuuuuu
    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    Dash Earthboy: thinks of the alure of "quickies"
    Dash Earthboy: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: like 9 seconds?
    Eliza Madrigal: heheheh
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Dash Earthboy: :)
    Dash Earthboy: thanx Yaku
    Eliza Madrigal: ty Ya
    Bleu Oleander: :))
    Wol Euler: ty
    Dash Earthboy: by the time I got back from my outing this morning I felt the need to jump in this fountain just to get clean again
    Bleu Oleander: Woooohuuuuu
    Bleu Oleander: hehe
    Wol Euler: had a bad day, dash?
    Eliza Madrigal: nice to have a place to refresh
    Dash Earthboy: one of those "open conversation" situations
    Dash Earthboy: i went to check on why the guy who bought my guitar didn't follow up with a call as he had promised Tuesday
    Eliza Madrigal: hm, doesn't sound like it :(
    Dash Earthboy: he'd promised to call by yesterday afternoon
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Bleu :) feels like we've spent the whole day together (time, voice, then here) hehe
    Bleu Oleander: have to check in to RL .... bye all .... don't forget the special event on Sunday!
    Dash Earthboy: found he'd got the guitar checked out and validated as a good deal by a neighboring barber
    Wol Euler: hehehehhe
    Wol Euler: bye bleu, take care
    Dash Earthboy: sounds good Bleu
    Wol Euler: "barber"?
    Dash Earthboy: have a good one
    Eliza Madrigal laughs
    Eliza Madrigal: sorry, listening Dash
    Dash Earthboy: yes a barber who had closed the shop and recently reopened after about a year
    Wol Euler: nice to have a musically knowledgeable barber.
    Wol Euler: wb korel
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: wb Korel
    Korel Laloix: Heya...
    Eliza Madrigal: is he the mayor too?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: wb korel
    Dash Earthboy: anyhow the purchaser didn't have any employment news he'd promised AND he didn't want guitar lessons from me after all
    Korel Laloix: Is my neck gone again in your views?
    Eliza Madrigal: oh :( sorry to hear that Dash
    Wol Euler: yes
    Dash Earthboy: i went over to the barber's to thank him for the validation
    Eliza Madrigal: yes you are sans neck, Korel
    Dash Earthboy: he didn't remember me from 2008 when he'd given me a CD he'd made
    Korel Laloix: Rebaked.
    Dash Earthboy: he plays guitar
    Wol Euler: fixed
    Korel Laloix: wado
    Dash Earthboy: hope y'all can follow this
    Wol Euler: following :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, listening
    Dash Earthboy: so I walk in the shop and thank the guy and he asks me what I'm doing (work wise)
    Dash Earthboy: and when I explain I've been looking and the purchaser had promised help
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Zen :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey zen
    Zen Arado: Hi Folks :)
    Dash Earthboy: the barber launches into that i can't find a job because i'm white
    Dash Earthboy: hi zen
    Wol Euler: O.O
    Wol Euler: hello zen
    Dash Earthboy: from there the barber and his customer launch into all kinds of racial crap
    Dash Earthboy: and throw it at Obama
    Eliza Madrigal nods, happens
    Dash Earthboy: slurs and lies all voiced in their "open" opinion sharing
    Eliza Madrigal: :(
    Yakuzza Lethecus: good night everyone
    Dash Earthboy: by the time I left, I felt i needed to jump in this fountain and get clean
    Zen Arado: nite Yaku
    Dash Earthboy: g'nite Yaku...thanx again
    Eliza Madrigal: Nte Ya :)
    Wol Euler: bye yaku
    Dash Earthboy: i wrote in my journal that i felt i was "drowning in the ignorance surrounding me"
    Eliza Madrigal: that is quite different dash, from what I heard of the two conversing today who were gracious to one another, strong views in this case didn't mean mindless
    Dash Earthboy: yes
    Dash Earthboy: i miss that kind of environment
    Zen Arado: I was reading how tribalism...dislike of thr neighbiuring tribe...had evolutionary advantages for us
    Wol Euler nods.
    Zen Arado: whereas altruism in one's own tribe is beneficial
    Dash Earthboy: listens
    Ewan Bonham: Yes, in the midst of it all, I still seek peace of mind..
    Ewan Bonham: Which often means detachment where I can..
    Dash Earthboy: yes Ewan
    Wol Euler: hello nano
    nanomilano Resident: hi all
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Nano
    Dash Earthboy: hey nano
    Ewan Bonham: Hi Nano
    Zen Arado: that suspicion of other races is still there in us
    Zen Arado: Hi Nano
    Dash Earthboy: i didn't hear suspicion in what they said, i heard hatred
    Zen Arado: it can be roused
    Dash Earthboy: and they mocked me too
    Eliza Madrigal: we had an interesting discussion in time session re this... digging deeply enough into self or other, one arrives back around
    nanomilano Resident: oh
    Zen Arado: yeh but whewn the suspicion is stirred up by a good speaker for instance
    Dash Earthboy: listens
    nanomilano Resident: srry have to go again
    nanomilano Resident: bye all
    Dash Earthboy: bye nano
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe we reach a level of sophistication that allows to see through propaganda, knowing it is everywhere?
    Korel Laloix: Well, Obama is overtly sexist and racist... but talking politics in this time seems to be difficult to stay civil.
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Nano
    Korel Laloix: ciao
    Korel Laloix: It just seems to bring out the worst in some people when the subject is brought up.
    Eliza Madrigal: I don't think any subject has that power on its own
    Korel Laloix: Lots of atched baggage for sure.
    Korel Laloix: People are worried and scared.... and raw nerves are easy to irritate.
    Ewan Bonham: Any message does require a giver and a receiver..:)
    Eliza Madrigal: if we had any idea how little we know about anything, it might be impossible to have any opinions whatsoever, hehe
    Dash Earthboy: i see problems when opinion is stated as fact
    Zen Arado: what can we do about racist people?
    Zen Arado: try to persuade them otherwise?
    Zen Arado: very difficult
    Zen Arado: in my experience
    Dash Earthboy: closed minds are difficult to modify
    Wol Euler nods.
    Korel Laloix: Yes, but open minds are easy to misslead.
    Dash Earthboy: i consider myself fairly open and aware
    Korel Laloix: I think there has to be abalance.
    Eliza Madrigal: seems an affliction.... what does one do when someone has a disease?
    Zen Arado: are we all totally free from racism?
    Korel Laloix: People see things differently though, one of the things I love about SL the most is hearing different ways of seeing things.
    Dash Earthboy: and misleading can be the result of a closed mind (already infected) perpetuating the disease
    Zen Arado: I'm not
    Dash Earthboy: i don't think race is any more important than hair color or eye color
    Dash Earthboy: i'm simply part of the human race
    Zen Arado: oh yes but I found some in myself in practice
    Korel Laloix: It should not be more important, but it is.
    Dash Earthboy: i don't confuse race with culture
    Korel Laloix: Just like gender and orientation.
    Korel Laloix: Confuse?
    Zen Arado: yeh maybe it is the culture practices that I find hard to take
    Eliza Madrigal: silence may hold the key :) if anyone could get quiet for long enough things would get clear pretty fast
    Wol Euler: sorry, I'm going to have to slip off to bed, I'm dozing off in my chair tonight
    Wol Euler: goodngiht all, take care
    Korel Laloix: My race is tied with my culture.
    Korel Laloix: Ciao.
    Zen Arado: bye Wol
    Dash Earthboy: nite Wol!
    Zen Arado: sleep well
    Eliza Madrigal: Night Wol :)
    Dash Earthboy: wow time has flown here :(
    Eliza Madrigal: yes have been on too long today....
    Zen Arado: me too
    Zen Arado: SL addiction
    Dash Earthboy: the national weather service about 3 hours ago extended the Code Orange alert through the night
    Eliza Madrigal: first day of summer officially with the kids but they are all busy
    Dash Earthboy: usually it ends at 6 PM
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Still, I should feed them I think, heheh
    Dash Earthboy: but they extended it all the way to 6 PM tomorrow
    Ewan Bonham: It was good seing you again...
    Dash Earthboy: be well Eliza
    Zen Arado: bye Eliza
    Ewan Bonham: Thanks all for the conversation!
    Eliza Madrigal: Very nice to see you Ewan, and Bye Zen, Dash, Korel, be very well and happy
    Zen Arado: bye Ewan
    Dash Earthboy: Bye Eliza
    Zen Arado: you too
    Korel Laloix: Caio all.
    Dash Earthboy: are we breaking up?
    Ewan Bonham: And you, Eliza and all..:)
    Dash Earthboy: bye Ewan
    Dash Earthboy: s'alright
    Korel Laloix: I am at work so in and out.
    Korel Laloix: ANd in three IMs... smiles
    Dash Earthboy: wow, way to multitask Korel !!
    Korel Laloix: I do try.... smiles
    Zen Arado: I wonder about these IMs
    Korel Laloix: WHich ones?
    Zen Arado: means you only give people part attention
    Zen Arado: not reallt fair
    Dash Earthboy: Zen, is there really such a thing as FULL attention?
    Korel Laloix: That is very true.
    Zen Arado: what do you think?
    Zen Arado: I guess not
    Korel Laloix: I don't like doing it, but I hate to be rude and just cut a chat off.
    Dash Earthboy: i have never seen full attention
    Zen Arado: but maybe we should try
    Zen Arado: I know...Sl seems to make us do it
    Zen Arado: and it seems rude to put busy as well
    Dash Earthboy: hard to know when practices become exercises in futility sometimes
    Korel Laloix: Balance is the key.
    Dash Earthboy: i'm not much into Don Quixote quests
    Korel Laloix: And if you can find it, please lt me know... smiles
    Korel Laloix: I was suposed to hav read that... it is on my list though...
    Dash Earthboy: sometimes balance is hard to see
    Zen Arado: I miss things even in local chat only :)
    Dash Earthboy: Korel, just watch Man of La Mancha...i think that's the one
    Dash Earthboy: takes less time than reading the book
    Zen Arado: tilting at windmills
    Zen Arado: that's all I remember
    Dash Earthboy: yah good word picture huh?
    Korel Laloix: That a movie then?
    Dash Earthboy: yah Korel
    Dash Earthboy: maybe listed in IMDB
    Dash Earthboy: it's at my local library
    Korel Laloix: Will look for it.
    Zen Arado: it's all of 10 C here Dash
    Dash Earthboy: sounds wonderful Zen!
    Korel Laloix: I find it hard to get interested in European writings.
    Dash Earthboy: only 35C here :(
    Zen Arado: it reached 14 C today
    Zen Arado: phew :)
