    Calvino Rabeni: Ewan .. Hello!
    Ewan Bonham: Hello..
    Calvino Rabeni: It's a quiet night .. here in SL and RL too .. how about for you?

    Calvino Rabeni: Hello Korel !
    Korel Laloix: Heya
    Korel Laloix: Was stuck at the corner of the sims for a bit.
    Calvino Rabeni: Sounds awkward
    Korel Laloix: One of those strange SL oddities.
    Calvino Rabeni: has that kind of thing happened before?
    Korel Laloix: It happens all the tiem when you are on a slow connectin.
    Calvino Rabeni: Yeah, the number of oddities is I think really almost unlimited
    Korel Laloix: It just takes teh sim a while to figure out where you go, so it puts you at 0,0,0
    Calvino Rabeni: oh, is it like when avatar keeps on walking and walking?
    Ewan Bonham: Lol... that has happened to me..
    Calvino Rabeni: Maybe even walking off into the ocean somewhere :)
    Korel Laloix: You just have to wait it out.
    Calvino Rabeni: Suppose so
    Korel Laloix: I have not done that one in a while.
    Ewan Bonham: It happens to me about once per week..
    Korel Laloix: I am not walking around much these days in SL, so not a bit issue for me now i guess.
    Korel Laloix: I have a small colelction of sims and dont wander much anymore.
    Calvino Rabeni: I have the same habit .. and hope it doesn't spill over to RL ..
    Korel Laloix: I am the oposite in RL.. I amm all over the place.
    Korel Laloix: Need to cut down in fact.
    Korel Laloix: Horrid at overcommiting myself.
    Calvino Rabeni: too many miles per week?
    Korel Laloix: That as well... smiles
    Calvino Rabeni: :)
    Korel Laloix: I did trim my runnign rought by a block, so it is shorter now a little...
    Korel Laloix: I just needed to get my weight back up.
    Korel Laloix: So that helps
    Calvino Rabeni: Less miles, more bites
    Calvino Rabeni: just a little I think
    Korel Laloix: When I moved out from my grandma's place, I lost a few lbs.. which was bad.
    Korel Laloix: But getting things together again.
    Ewan Bonham: 's current display-name is "Ewan".
    Calvino Rabeni: I'm keeping an eye on my crashy computer - SL overheats it and it shuts down.. If I disappear for 10 mins without warning that's the reason
    Calvino Rabeni: WB Ewan
    Korel Laloix: Sounds likeyou need a cooling pad.
    Korel Laloix: A laptop?
    Calvino Rabeni: Grandma must have been a good cook
    Calvino Rabeni: yes a laptop
    Korel Laloix: That, and she really did not take no for an answer.
    Calvino Rabeni: oho
    Korel Laloix: And she cooked exactly what I liked.
    Calvino Rabeni: aha :)

    Korel Laloix: Getting used to living alone is proving to be rather hard in a lot of ways.
    Korel Laloix: Not just on the eating thing though.
    Ewan Bonham: korel... this is in rl?
    Korel Laloix: Yes.
    Korel Laloix: never lived in a house/apartment by myself before.
    Korel Laloix: Always had someone to share the space with to a dgree.
    Aphrodite Macbain: ah, the usual suspects
    Korel Laloix: There is a bit of a lonely to it.
    Korel Laloix: Heya.... smiles
    Ewan Bonham: hi luci and Aph..
    Aphrodite Macbain: hi
    Korel Laloix: Would really love to get a cat or two.
    Lucinda Lavender: Heya ...
    Aphrodite Macbain: They are good company Kori
    Korel Laloix: yes.. but not in the lease... frowns
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-( bummer
    Korel Laloix: Loved having "the cat" around at grandmas.
    Korel Laloix: Eventhough he considered me more his personal portable heating pad I think.
    Aphrodite Macbain: I go to sleep each night to the sound of contrapuntal purrs
    Korel Laloix: contrapuntal?
    Aphrodite Macbain: hmmm
    Aphrodite Macbain: how to explain that simply
    Lucinda Lavender: each coming in at certain times
    Aphrodite Macbain: they are not synchronous
    Lucinda Lavender: like us:)
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes!
    Korel Laloix: The cat would lay on my chest a night and i would wake up straining to breath... lol
    Korel Laloix: Oh OK.. smiles
    Korel Laloix: thanks.
    Aphrodite Macbain: mine sits beside me and stares at me and purrs till I wake up
    Korel Laloix: But the whole drool thing has to go though.
    Aphrodite Macbain: where is Cal?
    Aphrodite Macbain: did he crash?
    Lucinda Lavender: He seems to have disappeared
    Lucinda Lavender: probably
    Korel Laloix: Sl is way crashy today.
    Aphrodite Macbain: an overheated laptop
