    Pema Pera: would anybody like to suggest a topic for Saturday nite conversations?

    Aphrodite brought up an adventure topic:

    Aphrodite Macbain: Eliza and I and Bleu and Wol went to an amazing sim/instllation this afternoon. I was stuck there for almost 2 hours
    stevenaia Michinaga: stuck?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Don't know if it is a possible topic but it makes me realize how engaging SL is
    Pema Pera: oh please do tell us!
    Paradise Tennant: listens
    Aphrodite Macbain: fixed to my chair- Dungeons and Dragons on a higher level of techichal wizardry
    Aphrodite Macbain: dangerous stuff
    Pema Pera: do you have the slurl?
    Pema Pera: or the name?
    Aphrodite Macbain: the objecive was to get to the top of the mountain without being desroyed, kicked out, waylaid, bludgeoned etc
    Aphrodite Macbain: angry Gods: An Apocalyptric Vision
    Eos Amaterasu: they're doing the bludgeoning?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Angry Gods: An Apocalyptic Vision, UWA VIRTLANTIS (49, 65, 1) - Moderate
    Eos Amaterasu: like Angry Birds?
    Aphrodite Macbain: the devil is,. You enter thru a long tunnel, you are given wings and a halo and a set of instructions
    Aphrodite Macbain: and then it's up to you to figure out the way to the top
    Aphrodite Macbain: Eliza and Wol kept saving me
    Aphrodite Macbain: by TPing me out of the drop of doom etc
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: they are both guardian angels
    Aphrodite Macbain: indeed
    Aphrodite Macbain: Beign Aphrodite didn't help me in he least. I guess I am a lesser goddess
    Pema Pera: a drop of doom a drop of bliss . . .
    Aphrodite Macbain: Being
    Aphrodite Macbain: he he
    Eos Amaterasu: did you get to the top of the mountain?
    Aphrodite Macbain: no. But close
    iwandertoo Resident: "a drop of bliss..." samud could come up with a poem from this
    Aphrodite Macbain: befoe I was plunged into the fiery ocean off a cliff
    iwandertoo Resident: eek...
    Eos Amaterasu will not try this at home

    Aphrodite took up Susan's hint:

    Aphrodite Macbain: a drop of bliss - and what is this - but a gentle kiss
    iwandertoo Resident: :)
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: hope he's OK
    Aphrodite Macbain: or she
    Pema Pera: and yes, Susan, samud is getting really rapturous these days -- love those poetic messages!

    Aphrodite Macbain: ready for tomorrow Storm?
    Storm Nordwind: yes :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'm looking forwardto it
    Storm Nordwind: I hope it'll be of some benefit
    Aphrodite Macbain: rezzing - a new word in the English vocabulary
    Storm Nordwind: Of uncertain etymology
    Paradise Tennant: smiles and waves at storm
    Eos Amaterasu: resolving?
    Pema Pera: taking residence?
    Aphrodite Macbain: resolving,? achieving resolution?

    SanFroggy Resident: so how do I grab a pillow?

    stevenaia Michinaga: that is the pillow for the smaller set

    Paradise Tennant: the normal cushions are awkward for them :)
    Archmage Atlantis: ding
    Pema Pera: how are you enjoying SL so far, Froggy?
    SanFroggy Resident: I like it, but sometimes its too laggy :(
    Pema Pera nods
    SanFroggy Resident: it takes away some of the enjoyment.
    SanFroggy Resident: why I am facing the wrong direction?
    SanFroggy Resident: hop hop..
    Paradise Tennant: if you put your mouse over one of the cushions and right click it will give you a sit option :)

    Storm Nordwind: Many people get addicted to building. Beware Froggy! ;)
    Pema Pera: Storm also offers great tours, by balloon and other flying objects
    Pema Pera: from carpets to busses
    Archmage Atlantis: The venue is important.......the interaction gives it life
    Storm Nordwind: When it's not too laggy, it can be very immersive
    SanFroggy Resident: I have a large bubble transporter... if only I can get it to float :p
    Archmage Atlantis: Geek speak welcomed here
    Storm Nordwind: There are some things you can do to reduce lag - it's not too bad here
    Archmage Atlantis: ding
    SanFroggy Resident: dong
