    Qt Core: it was almost sunny, a little rain in the morning and 4 succesfully national poll ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, great
    Agatha Macbeth: Who won?
    Qt Core: polls, not elections, but still most would say the current government lost
    Agatha Macbeth: Who is the current government?
    Agatha Macbeth: Which party I mean?
    Qt Core: right wing parties, coalition lead by Silvio Berlusconi
    Archmage Atlantis: Polls vs Elections QT, foriegn to my thought patterns
    Agatha Macbeth: Is he *still* around?
    Agatha Macbeth: Don't think you will ever get rid of him
    Qt Core: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Referendum we have only the one in wich you agree or disagree about deleting all or part of a state law
    Agatha Macbeth: Good grief
    Qt Core: or the one confirming a change in the constitution
    Agatha Macbeth: 'Democracy in action'
    Archmage Atlantis: The constitution is not easily changed in my country
    Agatha Macbeth: Is there as much corruption in Italian politics still?
    Qt Core: not even there, two votes, by both chambers six months apart and then it may be put on referendum
    Qt Core: sometims the opposite question arise, agatha ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Agatha Macbeth: Politicians the world over are much the same I guess
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, Aggers
    Archmage Atlantis: Knowing that is how I know how the second amendment, the right to bear arms, came into our governing document......people are what people are.
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes Arch, I can believe that
    Agatha Macbeth: Dodge City
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, Dodge, and Wall Street, NYC
    Agatha Macbeth grins
    Agatha Macbeth: Makes me think of Marshall McCloud riding his horse in NY :)
    Qt Core: those where the questions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italian_referendum,_2011 (all got the required mimimum numbers of voters and all gave a yes (so drop the law) answer)
    Qt Core: lovely character, Agatha
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Squeaky voice
    Archmage Atlantis: A voice is a voice
    Qt Core: don't know, we dub everything around here
    Archmage Atlantis: Even if electronic
    Agatha Macbeth: Good grief QT, that looks complicated
    Archmage Atlantis: Life is complicated, love is simple
    Agatha Macbeth: Wish I could agree...
    Qt Core: a few years ago we had a session with 13 questions... that was complicate
    Archmage Atlantis: Never agree, always be
    Agatha Macbeth: :p
    Agatha Macbeth: Ok Arch, I'll try :)
    Archmage Atlantis: TY

    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Rhi
    Qt Core: Hi Rhi
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Hi, Qt!
    Agatha Macbeth: Glad you're here, it was getting quiet
    Agatha Macbeth: Dunno where everybody is
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, I can yodal, I guess, if it's too quiet
    Agatha Macbeth: In voice?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, it's Summer; they maby be working in their gardens
    Agatha Macbeth: :p
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Just joking
    Qt Core: europeans ma be resting after a stressful weekend ;-)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, right; it was a holiday weekend for them, wasn't i?
    Agatha Macbeth: Isn't every weekend stressful?
    Qt Core: i believe most hate for mondays come from lack of rest in the we
    Agatha Macbeth: Hm, maybe
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Hmmm, it's the difference in schedule, plus the belief you're supposed to hate your work.
    Agatha Macbeth: A lot of people do ;-)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, that fuels the belief
    Qt Core: even in school years people hated mondays ( i agreed only and only a little in my last high school year, we had a 9 lesson hours mondays (from 8:15 to sometimes pas 16)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: But more accidents happen on Mondays because of the switch in body time.
    Agatha Macbeth: Interesting - has that been proven statistically?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I believe so, but I also havaen't really questioned the statistics.
    Agatha Macbeth: Wow
    Rhiannon Dragoone: you know, look at the methodology to see if it's valid
    Agatha Macbeth: Hm, right
    Qt Core: (but then in the we there are the after party alchool induced car crashes)
    Agatha Macbeth: Don't they happen all the time tho?
    Agatha Macbeth: More on a weekend I guess
    Qt Core: many more in week ends when people drink more
    Agatha Macbeth: Yeah
    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, yeah, drinking and driving; being drowsy and driving.
    Agatha Macbeth: Drugged up and driving
    Qt Core: and even sleepy and driving
    Agatha Macbeth: Safer to stay in the house :-)
    Qt Core: yes, better to have no social life ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth agrees
    Agatha Macbeth: A computer is a good friend
    Qt Core: and has a mute button
    Agatha Macbeth: :D
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Qt, well now we can have sociall lives in our computers; like we're having now
    Agatha Macbeth: Yep
    Agatha Macbeth: And not risk getting run over...
    Qt Core: there are still many that don't think that the digital one isn't really a life
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, you can alwlays be pushed or orbited here.
    Agatha Macbeth: Only the ones who haven't tried it I suspect QT
    Qt Core: yeah, the same that maybe had a long distance phone love story ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: OMG
    Qt Core: or paper mail one
    Agatha Macbeth: Just think of the cost...
    Qt Core: or rock inscription or clay one
    Agatha Macbeth does a Jack Benny
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Jack Benny? Oh, the guy who made jokes about being cheap; always had a man named Rochester.
    Agatha Macbeth: Yep, that's the one
    Agatha Macbeth: and played the violin
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Yeah, I've watched re runs of his series, and some of the movies he's been in. Do you think he really didn't know how to put his shoes on the right way?
    Agatha Macbeth: To be honest, I don't know
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, why should you? That's like asking if W.C. Fields was really a drunk.
    Agatha Macbeth: But it's a good gimmick
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh I think he was IIRC
    Agatha Macbeth: Certainly wasn't teetotal
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, there's always Don Rickles; Pamala uses him as an analogy to dissociatives;; he played a game of being mean and nasty, but was apparently really nice--at least according to his wife.
    Agatha Macbeth: Hmm, don't remember him
    Agatha Macbeth: How's the philosophy group doing Rhi?
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Zen
    Zen Arado: Ho folks

    Zen Arado: Strom may have been working on it a long time
    Agatha Macbeth: I just didn't know if it had been there when it was where it was before
    Zen Arado: I think anyone can go look at it now
    Agatha Macbeth: Well we won't get any noobs disturbing us up there
    Zen Arado: I still have 20 paintings there
    Agatha Macbeth: And they are very good too :)
    Zen Arado: hope people go and see them

    Agatha Macbeth: Do you still have your gallery at Buyeo?
    Zen Arado: yep
    Agatha Macbeth: Right
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll take a look sometime
    Zen Arado: it's a good outlet fro creativity
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll bet
    Agatha Macbeth: wish I could paint
    Agatha Macbeth: or play the piano
    Zen Arado: you could do other things I'm sure
    Agatha Macbeth: Hmm...
    Zen Arado: write a little play
    Agatha Macbeth: I'm crap at most things: no patience
    Zen Arado: write a comedy sketch
    Agatha Macbeth: Well it's a thought I guess
    Zen Arado: a standup comedy routine
    Agatha Macbeth: Hm
    Zen Arado: wonder if that would work in SL ?
    Agatha Macbeth: I could stand there and say 'I don't HAVE to do this you know' :p
    Zen Arado: it's mostly voice after all
    Zen Arado: yeh :)
    Agatha Macbeth: You and Storm were really good
    Zen Arado: you're just saying that
    Zen Arado: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: No you were
    Agatha Macbeth: Highlight of the evening
    Zen Arado: it was a bit nerve wracking
    Agatha Macbeth: I can imagine
    Zen Arado: synchronising the sounds etc
    Agatha Macbeth: Eden's mic kept echoing for me: killed my ears
    Agatha Macbeth: I had to turn the volume down
    Zen Arado: yeh mic levels are a difficulty
    Agatha Macbeth: then when Stormy came on I couldn't hear him!
    Zen Arado: he has a quite voice
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes
    Zen Arado: quiet
    Agatha Macbeth: Sry I read that as 'quite a voice' :p
    Zen Arado: he wanted me to do my N.Irish accent
    Agatha Macbeth: rather
    Agatha Macbeth: You did!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: People do stand up comedy in SL
    Zen Arado: so I hammed it up a bit
    Agatha Macbeth: That would have been great
    Zen Arado: we use a lot more tones than the English I think
    Agatha Macbeth: Trouble is I couldn't seem to hear half the bells
    Zen Arado: like the Welsh too
    Agatha Macbeth: Iechyd da
    Zen Arado: they do Rhia?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Zen, yes, a couple of places; wish I could remember where.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Oh, a friend wants me to show her my SL house; I'll be back later.
