*Wol Euler was guardian for this session.*

Wol Euler: boxy

Alfred Kelberry: woly! :)

Alfred Kelberry: mmm, cute :)

Wol Euler: :)

Alfred Kelberry: partly grey though

Wol Euler: *rebakes*

Alfred Kelberry: how is woly this morning? rested, fed and sexy? :)

Alfred Kelberry: yay! it worked

Alfred Kelberry: see the belly button now

Wol Euler: two and a half out of three :)

Wol Euler grins.

Wol Euler: rest is a problem, jetlag.

Alfred Kelberry: yea, will take a week, i guess

Wol Euler: it usually does, going eastwards

Alfred Kelberry: so, nap time soon? :)

Wol Euler: hehehe

Alfred Kelberry: been alone this session?

Wol Euler: yep

Wol Euler: well, I was a quarter hour late

Wol Euler: slept past the alarm

Alfred Kelberry: :)

Alfred Kelberry: reminds me of someone in berlin :)

Wol Euler: heheh

Alfred Kelberry: jetlag syndrome

Alfred Kelberry: i'm off to a museum today

Wol Euler: yay

Wol Euler: which one?

Alfred Kelberry: not sure yet :)

Wol Euler: ah, so it's a general ambition

Alfred Kelberry: friends invited me

Wol Euler: not a specific plan

Wol Euler: oh I see :)

Alfred Kelberry: something artsy, i presume

Wol Euler grins.

Wol Euler: force yourself to have fun

Alfred Kelberry: no force, just joy and experience :)

Alfred Kelberry: there's also lunch scheduled which can compenate for any possible forceful events :)

Wol Euler: lunch is good

Alfred Kelberry: seen moneyball?

Wol Euler: sounds like a James Bond fanfic

Wol Euler: i.e. no

--BELL--

Alfred Kelberry: baseball, billy beane played by brad pitt

Alfred Kelberry: i want to see tintin

Wol Euler smiles.

Alfred Kelberry: really enjoyed the comics when i was a kid

Alfred Kelberry: adventures!

Wol Euler: yeah, me too; when I was in my twenties and thirties too

Wol Euler smiles.

Wol Euler: I collected them in French

Alfred Kelberry: fancy :)

Wol Euler: original :)

Alfred Kelberry: you have a special shelf dedicated to tintin? :)

Wol Euler: I don't have them here, alas; they are hopefully still in boxes in an attic in East London

Alfred Kelberry: oh, you still have a place there?

Wol Euler: no, a friend's attic

Alfred Kelberry: ah

Wol Euler: I left a lot of stuff there when I moved to Germany

Alfred Kelberry: a major dropping? :)

Wol Euler: mmhmm

Alfred Kelberry: do you miss any of the stuff you left behind?

Wol Euler: I was just thinking that :)

Alfred Kelberry: :)

Wol Euler: very little of it. A few specific things only

Alfred Kelberry: not bad :

Wol Euler: that#s probably true of most of what surrounds me right now too

Alfred Kelberry: i think holding an original book of tintin adventures in french would be nice though :)

Wol Euler: oh, I didn't mean that they were old; just that they were written in French and I likd that better than the english translations

Wol Euler: I do miss them.

Alfred Kelberry: bring them to germany! :)

Alfred Kelberry: and yes, agree on translation losing the spirit

Alfred Kelberry: can't say much about french though, but i think it's universal

Alfred Kelberry: movies translations are the worse, i think

Wol Euler: mmhmm, so much gets lost

Alfred Kelberry: i always opt for the original, even if i don't speak the language, with subtitles

Wol Euler: agreed!

Alfred Kelberry: then at least you can get the tone of voices, original sound

Alfred Kelberry: do they try to localize the jokes in german translations?

Wol Euler: depends; sometimes yes, and it's usually somewhat uncomfortable

Alfred Kelberry: yea :)

--BELL--

Alfred Kelberry: :)

Wol Euler: my first experience of German was watching the films of Wim Wenders and Werner Herzog with subtitles

Wol Euler: that gave me a flavour of the language before I began to learn it

Wol Euler: also Tarkovsky in Russian with subtitles

Wol Euler: (loved Tarkovsky)

Alfred Kelberry: neat

Alfred Kelberry: he's... different :)

Wol Euler smiles.

Wol Euler: what do Russians think of him? We see him as one of the great geniuses of storytelling

Alfred Kelberry: same thing :)

Wol Euler: good :)

Alfred Kelberry: quite a cult figure

Wol Euler: mmhmm

Wol Euler: "sacrifice"

Wol Euler remembers and shivers

*Pause.*

Alfred Kelberry: reading his wiki page :)

Wol Euler: I guessed it would be something like that

Alfred Kelberry: interesting, he wrote: when i was young, i got invovled in a bad company. had a very difficult moment. my mom helped me in an unsual way - she sent me with a geology expidition. i was a collector in taiga, siberia. basically, a mere worker. and these are the happiest memories of my life :)

Wol Euler smiles

Alfred Kelberry: 20s - a really special time

Wol Euler: yeah, in many ways.

Wol Euler: the golden age before the great crash

Alfred Kelberry: i wonder if it's possible to relive it say in the 40s?

Alfred Kelberry: hehe

Wol Euler: oh, do you mean 1920 or when one was 20 years old?

Alfred Kelberry: ah, no, years old :)

Wol Euler: heh

Alfred Kelberry: yet, your last comment still stands :)

Wol Euler: reliving? possibly, I guess, if you recreate the conditions

Wol Euler: you could move to a new city, take up a different job, get new friends

Wol Euler: which people typically do when they start university, or finish

Alfred Kelberry: hmm

Alfred Kelberry: yea

--BELL--

Alfred Kelberry: but you never feel that the 20s are so nice when you're actually 20 :)

Wol Euler: heh

Wol Euler: I think I did know that I was having a good time, a lucky and privileged time, when I was that age

Wol Euler: but it is easy to lose sight of what's around you

Wol Euler points to "awareness" and "appreciation" :)

Alfred Kelberry: i think you're lucky and privileged now too :)

Wol Euler: my point :) heheheheh

Alfred Kelberry: :)

Alfred Kelberry: i really look forward to the next meetup

Wol Euler: me too

Wol Euler: phone

Alfred Kelberry: btw, alps not too far from venice

Alfred Kelberry: say hi to an anonymous caller :)

Wol Euler: too late :)

Alfred Kelberry: eek

Wol Euler: alps are good, venice is good too

Alfred Kelberry: i mean, we could take a day trip up in the mountains

Wol Euler: aaaah

Wol Euler: that would mean a longer meetup then

Alfred Kelberry: yep

Wol Euler: because it is sacrilege to go to venice for a weekend and not spend the weekend there.

Alfred Kelberry: let's make it 4 days :)

Wol Euler: sounds good

Alfred Kelberry: i'll come for no less than a week anyway :)

Alfred Kelberry: no way you can escape :P

Wol Euler: so you'll organize that? great

Wol Euler: I have a marvellous place to stay there

Wol Euler: a woman who rents out apartments in a restored 16th century palazzo between Rialto and San Marco

Wol Euler: it's not cheap, but it is cheaper than a week in a hotel, because you can cook for yourselves there

--BELL--

Alfred Kelberry: ah, you're a venice regular :)

Alfred Kelberry: 2-3 people per room?

Wol Euler: not as regular as I'd like to be, haven't been in years

Wol Euler: 2 at most

Wol Euler: but some apts have 2 or 3 bedrooms

Alfred Kelberry: could use those :)

Wol Euler: no, there is a 3er too

Wol Euler: have to book pretty far in avdvance though, to be sure of getting everyone in

Wol Euler: so better start right now organizing for Spring

Alfred Kelberry: :/

Alfred Kelberry: i'm not sure about the dates yet

Alfred Kelberry: off season would be best though. less tourists and it's cheaper too :)

Wol Euler: definitely

Wol Euler: venice in summer is also too hot and sticky

Alfred Kelberry: iceland is good for summer

Wol Euler grins.

Wol Euler: I always wanted to go there!

Alfred Kelberry: wee!

Alfred Kelberry: :)

Alfred Kelberry: well, if the spring falls through, we can try iceland :)

Wol Euler: done

Alfred Kelberry: then stay there for a month waiting for some jeergblidjfj volcano to settle down :)

Wol Euler: heheheh

Wol Euler: true

--BELL--

Alfred Kelberry: :

Alfred Kelberry: woly girl :)

Wol Euler grins.

Alfred Kelberry: time to scoot

Wol Euler: me too

Wol Euler: nice to see you, boxy dear

Alfred Kelberry: nice catching you here

Alfred Kelberry: scoot well

Alfred Kelberry: wuff!

Wol Euler: heheh

Wol Euler: bye!
