    The guardian on call for this session was Solobill. As he was delayed a little, Gaya covered him for a short while. Some comments are Gaya’s.

    When Gaya arrived, Wol was already at the pavilion, looking ever so cute in her new outfit. Adams soon joins us.

    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
     Wol Euler: hello gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hi Wol. How are you?
    Wol Euler: quite well, thanks. Hungry but not going to eat tonight.
    Wol Euler: and you?
    Gaya Ethaniel is covering Solobill for a short while
    Faenik: why not?
    Wol Euler: is that why Faenik's on your other shoulder?
    Wol Euler: (silly joke, sorry, couldn't resist)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles. Well... Faenik had to move because he gets buried when I'm using some poseballs
    Wol Euler: ah :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Cute outfit Wol
    Wol Euler: hello Adams
    You: _/!\_
    Adams Rubble: Hello Ladies :)
    Wol Euler: how are you today?
    Adams Rubble: I am very good, how about you? I like your outfit :)
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Wol Euler: thanks, it's brand new. I was unable to resist a bargain, despite my tag.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Adams Rubble: I know the feeling :)
    Wol Euler: hmm, just noticed Moon's "Play as being bell" in the east entry, is it new?
    Adams Rubble: I don;t think so
    Faenik: ah :)
    Wol Euler: I usually face the other direction, perhaps it has been ther a long time and I never noticed.

    Quilty joins us, towering over all of us in his ‘International talk like a pirate day’ t-shirt, completed with a pirate hat and a humungous sword.

    Adams Rubble: Hello Quilty :)
    Wol Euler: hello quilty
    Quilty Bookmite: Arrrr landlubbers
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Wol Euler: arrrrr, quilty lad!
    Wol Euler: avast ther
    Quilty Bookmite: It's not that big is it?
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Wol Euler: aah, the old jokes are hte best.
    Quilty Bookmite: The old jokes are the oldest.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Quilty Bookmite: Does anyone else have a problem with these cushions appearing as large balls?
    Wol Euler: regularly!
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Adams Rubble: They do that when they are not rezzed; they'll settle down
    Quilty Bookmite: I seem to be engulfed at the moment
    Wol Euler: it'll "snap" back to normal in about ten minutes.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Wol Euler: or, if the rest have rezzed and yours didn't, then stand up and sit again.
    Quilty Bookmite: Thanks
    Quilty Bookmite: Much better
    Wol Euler: yw
    Adams Rubble: So Quilty, you have found a way as a male to dress and be noticed :)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Wol Euler chuckles
    Quilty Bookmite: Yes, but only today. :-)
    Quilty Bookmite: In fact, everyone should be dressing like this today.
    Adams Rubble: Oh?
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Quilty Bookmite: Maybe without the belly hanging out though.
    Adams Rubble covers her eyes
    Quilty Bookmite: *gasp* Yu mean you don't know Adams?
    Adams Rubble: know what?
    Quilty Bookmite: It's international talk like a pirate day.
    Adams Rubble: arrrrrr
    Quilty Bookmite: Yarrrr. It be
    Quilty Bookmite: I'm not very good at it though. :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Wol Euler: http://www.piratemonkeycult.org/manifesto/pirate_keyboard.jpg
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles. ty Wol
    Wol Euler chuckles
    Quilty Bookmite: Waiting for my browser...
    Faenik: indeed?
    Quilty Bookmite: Very good. I should get one. :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Adams Rubble's computer reisting
    Wol Euler: maybe your computer doesn't like pirate jokes.
    Quilty Bookmite: browsers and SL don't mix.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles

     Quel joins us... mysteriously... Everyone is trying on the t-shirt and bantering between the pirates continues.

    Quilty Bookmite gave you International Talk Like A Pirate Day Tee-shirt.

    Quilty Bookmite: Adams is wearing her t-shirt already
    Quilty Bookmite: Must be lag.
    Wol Euler: oh, then my viewer is laggy. sorry.
    Wol Euler: somebody else had better take the photo then :-)
    Quilty Bookmite: Taken.
    Quel Karillion ponders where his "is this your first time here?" introduction speech is :P
    Wol Euler: heheheheh
    Wol Euler: ahem
    Wol Euler: so, quel, welcome to Play as Being.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Quilty Bookmite: Is this your first time here Quel? :-)

    Quel Karillion: Yes and no :P
    Adams Rubble: Ah, Quilty, I ain't fully ressed yet you son of a porpoise
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles

    Quilty Bookmite: Arrr. I be sorry Adams.
     Adams Rubble looks for the plank
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Quilty Bookmite: Any way to save an image from your inventory?
    Gaya Ethaniel: What do you mean yes and no Quel?
    Wol Euler: hmm, not sure.
    Quilty Bookmite: Are you in disguise Quel?

    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Quel Karillion: ah, men here, women there :P
    Quilty Bookmite: Shall I swap with Gaya?
    Gaya Ethaniel nudges Wol to enclose the men in
    Gaya Ethaniel: Trapped!
    Wol Euler: captured.
    Quilty Bookmite: :-)
    Quel Karillion: :)
    Quilty Bookmite: Struggle struggle
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Quilty Bookmite: Quel, are you keeping your identity secret?
    Quel Karillion thought it would be somewhat obvious
    Quilty Bookmite: Well, yes it is. :-)
    Quel Karillion grins.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Quilty Bookmite: So how does your new identity feel?
    Wol Euler: nice to meet you at last.
    Quel Karillion: Nothing special, actually :)
    Quilty Bookmite: Ah right. :-)
    Wol Euler: wait and see :-)
    Quel Karillion: yes, it takes some time :)

    Hey, all, Solo here, thanks for covering for me Gaya!  This the spot where I showed up... 

    Wol Euler: hello solo
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Solobill Laville: Hello!
    Quel Karillion: Hello Solo.
    Quilty Bookmite: Hi Solo. Must switch my radar on.
    Wol Euler: you hve a charming grin in the side view.

    I was briefly pulled away in RL again...sorry folks...

    Wol Euler: the excitement was too much for him.
    Gaya Ethaniel: (RL calls for him I believe)
    Quel Karillion: yes, so it seems.
    Quilty Bookmite: I gave him a t-shirt. That seemed to do it.
    Quilty Bookmite: WB.
    Solobill Laville: back
    Solobill Laville: ugh
    Wol Euler: lol
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Faenik: indeed?
    Solobill Laville: sorry... :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: np Solo
    Quilty Bookmite: NP. :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel: How are you Solo?
    Wol Euler: arrrr, no worries

    At this point I noticed that everyone was wearing their International Talk Like a Pirate Day t-shirts!

    Solobill Laville: ARRRRGGGGGGHHHHH!
    Gaya Ethaniel: aww...
    Solobill Laville: Mee maties!
    Quilty Bookmite: Avast ye
    Quilty Bookmite: I guess it's not a day for serious discussion. :-)
    Solobill Laville: Maybe we can talk seriously like pirates!
    Quel Karillion: apparently not.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles. She can't speak like a pirate though...
    Quilty Bookmite: What be the meaning of life landlubbers?
    Solobill Laville: Arr, 'tis no way to see, this duality!!!
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Solobill Laville: NIce to meet you, by the way, Quel
    Quel Karillion finds this quite amusing but also unable to participate somehow.
    Quel Karillion: Nice to meet you too, Solo.

    Wol gave us a link to the savage chickens website, very funny stuff if you haven't seen it.  To have the following make sense, I'll briefly describe the comic.  Three chickens are dressed as pirates.  The first one is saying, "Arr!", the second one is saying, "Yar!", and the third one is saying, "Har!".  The captions reads "Pirate linguists have long debated the Arr-Yar-Har question."

    Wol Euler: http://www.savagechickens.com/ <- a week of pirate cartoons
    Solobill Laville: I love savage chickens!
    Wol Euler grins
    Faenik: why not?
    Gaya Ethaniel: Funny... ty Wol <smile>
    Quilty Bookmite: Will see the cartoons in a minute or two.
    Solobill Laville: hehe
    Quilty Bookmite: I be stuck in the internet doldrums.
    Solobill Laville: I fall into the "Arr" camp, as noted earlier...
    Wol Euler: arrr, that be thte truth, avast ye.
    Gaya Ethaniel: What's the difference between Arr, Yar and Har?
    Solobill Laville: Philosophical paradigm, Gaya...
    Gaya Ethaniel: eh? philosophical? wow...
    Quilty Bookmite: :-)
    Wol Euler: different spellings of the same sound, basically.
    Quel Karillion: :)
    Solobill Laville: Oh, sure, The "Arrs" have long believed in a more humanistic approach
    Wol Euler: whereas the Hars tend to be Manicheans
    Solobill Laville: The "Yars" are modernists
    Gaya Ethaniel didn't know pirates are this deep
    Solobill Laville: And as for the "Hars", sheesh
    Quilty Bookmite: Penzance or Carribean? :-)
    Wol Euler: lol
    Solobill Laville: Pittsburgh
    Wol Euler: arrrr, that be the question, matey
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Solobill Laville: (baseball joke for you non-American Pirates)
    Solobill Laville: Actually, maybe only Quel would get that one (?)
    Wol Euler thought Pittsburgh was landlocked?
    Gaya Ethaniel fails to understand... knows a bit about cricket... not baseball I'm afraid
    Solobill Laville: Indeed
    Wol Euler: landpirates!
    Solobill Laville: Land Shark!
    Quel Karillion: umm... that one?
    Wol Euler: arrrrr. Scurvy dogs.
    Quilty Bookmite: Ah, What we call rounders. it;s be a girls game.
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Wol Euler: lol
    Gaya Ethaniel throws up her hands and declare she's Korean
    Solobill Laville smiles in confusion
    Gaya Ethaniel: Baseball - girl's game right Quilty?
    Quilty Bookmite: Sorry Gaya. :-)
    Quilty Bookmite: Yes. Rounders.
    Gaya Ethaniel: So me being Korean excempts from this debate between Amercians and English :P
    Quilty Bookmite: If you want, or you can pick a side at random.
    Solobill Laville: Yes, Gaya, but I'm so concused I didn't even know I was debating
    Wol Euler: the boys didn't play beccause their hand-eye coordination asn't good enough for the small ball. So they played soccer.
    Solobill Laville: must've lost...
    Gaya Ethaniel sits quietly on the fence on this
    Wol Euler: biiig ball, easy to see
    Solobill Laville: Ah, well played, Wol ;)
    Quilty Bookmite: Are there any americans here?
    Solobill Laville: Yup
    Gaya Ethaniel: Solo <= American
    Wol Euler: lol
    Quilty Bookmite: Glad to see my insult didn't go to waste. ;-)
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Gaya Ethaniel: Wow.. so English
    Wol Euler: aarrrrrr, it would have been in the log.
    Solobill Laville: Oh, yes, it didn't Quilty ;)
    Quilty Bookmite: Yarrrr. Plenty of yankee dogs to read it there.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Solo not a 'typical American' though
    Faenik: why not?
    Solobill Laville thinks ‘thank you Faenik...’
    Gaya Ethaniel pokes Faenik
    Quel Karillion grins at Faenik.
    Wol Euler chuckles. This log will make fine reading.
    Quel Karillion: Yes, very.
    Gaya Ethaniel hasn't laughed like this for a while
    Quilty Bookmite: Enlightening. :-)
    Quilty Bookmite: Nice ears BTW Gaya.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles. ty
    Quilty Bookmite: And nice eye patch Wol!
    Wol Euler: I have to ask, Solo: was that serious about being concussed? have you had an accident?
    Wol Euler: ty
    Quilty Bookmite: Concussed? I missed that.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Me too...
    Solobill Laville: uh, spell check...I may act concussed, but I meant to write confused...
    Solobill Laville smiles
    Wol Euler: lol
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ok <smile>
    Wol Euler thwaps you about the ears.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Solobill Laville wonders if concussed is actually a word
    Quilty Bookmite: Relieved. :-)
    Quilty Bookmite: Yes it is.
    Wol Euler: "suffering concussion" yes.
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Solobill Laville is looking it up
    Wol Euler: oh ye of little faith.
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Quilty Bookmite: Are you really Wol?
    Wol Euler points to solo and his dictionary.
    Solobill Laville: Arr, well I be jiggered...
    Solobill Laville: "It is not known whether the concussed brain is structurally damaged the way..."
    Gaya Ethaniel looks up 'jiggered'... interesting sounding word...
    Solobill Laville: Sorry, Wol...
    Wol Euler: lol
    Solobill Laville shrugs and smiles as only an American would
    Gaya Ethaniel: Ah... jiggered... confounded; damned: I'm jiggered if I know what 'concussed' means.
    Wol Euler: i.e. with a cirag to hand?
     Wol Euler: *cigar
    Wol Euler: buggered up my own joke :-(
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Gaya Ethaniel hesitates to look up 'buggered'... sounds weird
    Quilty Bookmite: Don't. :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel: wow rude... Wol
    Wol Euler frowns. Do you really live in England? It was the most commonly used semi-obscenity in my day.
    Gaya Ethaniel: 'Ts ok
    Wol Euler: arrrrr
    Quilty Bookmite: Too late. :-)
    Quilty Bookmite: It's a bit mild these days.
    Gaya Ethaniel pouts. Haven't heard it much before really somehow
    Wol Euler: "republican"
    Wol Euler: "SUV-driver"
    Wol Euler shivers
    Gaya Ethaniel: Mild... living in Hull or something Quilty?
    Quilty Bookmite: I mean the word buggered.
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Gaya Ethaniel: For that to be mild... you must live somewhere north <smile>
    Quilty Bookmite: Hull might be better, i live in the south. :-)
    Wol Euler: its use is rather rhetorical than biological :-)
    Quilty Bookmite: I'm from the north though.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah
    Gaya Ethaniel: Yes I can see it Wol <smile>
    Quilty Bookmite: Wol knows far too much. :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Wol Euler shrugs apologetically
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Gaya Ethaniel: Can't hide from Wol you know
    Quilty Bookmite: I'm sure M.I.7 are on the case.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles. Could be
    Wol Euler: my codename is "Leamas"
    Quilty Bookmite: I must be goin' Must catch the tide me hearties.
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Solobill Laville: Arr, be off with ye!
    Wol Euler: arrrrr, farewell Quilty lad
    Gaya Ethaniel: Thanks Quilty. Good night
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Quilty Bookmite: Ye scruvy dogs.
