    druth Vlodovic: hi contre
    Catrinamonblue Resident: hello
    ContreCourant Resident: hello
    ContreCourant Resident: a quiet night
    Catrinamonblue Resident: yes :)
    ContreCourant Resident: peaceful
    ContreCourant Resident: It's nice just to sit after a busy day
    Catrinamonblue Resident: yes it is
    druth Vlodovic: what were you busy with?
    ContreCourant Resident: laundry, groceries, dish washing, nothing very exciting
    ContreCourant Resident: What have you been up to?
    Catrinamonblue Resident: nothing much
    ContreCourant Resident: I find that Fridays are catch up days
    ContreCourant Resident: I keep intending to go to the gym or do something creative but never seem to give myself the time
    ContreCourant Resident: Catrimamonblue - that's sounds almost Egyptian
    Catrinamonblue Resident: no :) just made up nonsense
    ContreCourant Resident: laughs very creative!!
    Catrinamonblue Resident: thank you :)
    druth Vlodovic: "counter current" isn't bad either :)
    Catrinamonblue Resident: :)
    druth Vlodovic: what are you countering?
    ContreCourant Resident: Thanks ;-)
    ContreCourant Resident: I feel that way a lot
    ContreCourant Resident: the way things are- going against the flow
    ContreCourant Resident: I often feel like an outside, an odd person out
    ContreCourant Resident: outsider
    druth Vlodovic: a good number of people do :-/
    ContreCourant Resident: SL allows me to feel OK with that
    Catrinamonblue Resident: I feel that way myself sometimes too
    ContreCourant Resident: do you?
    Catrinamonblue Resident: yes
    druth Vlodovic: I wonder what it is like inside, exactly
    ContreCourant Resident: do you feel less so in SL?
    ContreCourant Resident: me too druth!
    ContreCourant Resident: feeling "at home" I guess
    ContreCourant Resident: understood
    druth Vlodovic: I'm planning to go to an anime convention this weekend
    ContreCourant Resident: sorry - I sound a bit wimpy
    ContreCourant Resident: what is that?
    druth Vlodovic: and interesting exercise in "inside" versus "outside" really
    ContreCourant Resident: are they those Japanese cartoons?
    druth Vlodovic: anime is sort of the geek of cartoons in some ways
    ContreCourant Resident: why geek?
    druth Vlodovic: so in some ways it could be called a convention of outsiders made partially mainstream
    druth Vlodovic: titles like that are given by others, in this case it got adopted by people who were tired of having others define them
    ContreCourant Resident: they are in their own mainstream going with their current :)
    druth Vlodovic: exactly :)
    druth Vlodovic: they made their own current to follow wherever they decide to go
    Catrinamonblue Resident: :)
    ContreCourant Resident: are they any different from any other cartoons?
    druth Vlodovic: it'll be the first one I go to, so it ought to be an interesting experience
    ContreCourant Resident: do they tell different stories?
    druth Vlodovic: well, it covers a huge range, from children's shows to adult entertainment
    druth Vlodovic: "anime" is actually a particular style of art, but I'm not sure I could pick it out of a lineup
    druth Vlodovic: in this case it just means Japanese 'toons
    ContreCourant Resident: people have big eyes...?
    druth Vlodovic: that's chibi
    ContreCourant Resident: sounds like a food
    druth Vlodovic: manga, I think (don't quote me on this) is more realistic, and anime is slightly more cartoonish than manga
    ContreCourant Resident: sounds like a huge field
    Catrinamonblue Resident: confusing for me :)
    ContreCourant Resident: Catrina - do you know anything about it?
    druth Vlodovic: I should get my daughter to come online and correct all my misunderstandings :)
    Catrinamonblue Resident: LOL not really\
    ContreCourant Resident: ah - she is a fan?
    druth Vlodovic: she is the one who talked me into it
    ContreCourant Resident: ?
    ContreCourant Resident: are you two married?
    Catrinamonblue Resident: (sheppish grin) yes
    ContreCourant Resident: oh! interesting
    ContreCourant Resident: grins
    druth Vlodovic: I've corrupted her
    ContreCourant Resident: who? Catrina or your daughter?
    druth Vlodovic: it's my mission in life to make everyone a little more geeky :)
    Catrinamonblue Resident: me :) he brought me into the dRK SIDE :)
    Catrinamonblue Resident: opps silly caps lock
    ContreCourant Resident: hahahah
    druth Vlodovic: I told her we have cookies
    ContreCourant Resident: seemed appropriate
    Catrinamonblue Resident: Had to find out why he was on the computer all the time
    ContreCourant Resident: cookies? you sound like the wicked withch
    ContreCourant Resident: witch
