    This morning Riddle Sideways was the Guardian on call.  The comments will be by Riddle.

    [that seems generic enough :)].  

    PaB Listener Master: Recording has started!
    Riddle Sideways: good morning, recorder

    Adams Rubble joins the little box and I

    Adams Rubble: Hello Riddle :)
    Riddle Sideways: good moring
    Riddle Sideways: morning
    Riddle Sideways: sorry, had to run outside about some car stuff
    Adams Rubble: Aha. Welcome back :)
    Adams Rubble: Hello Adelene :)
    Riddle Sideways: morning, Adelene

    Adelene joins us in the winged lioness av that I had read about, but not seen.

    Adelene Dawner: 'morning, folks :)
    Riddle Sideways: I have read about your feathers
    Riddle Sideways: they look very nice
    Adams Rubble: feathers?
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^?
    Adams Rubble: Hello Pema :)
    Adelene Dawner is not sure quite what you're talking about, Riddle, but thanks. ^.^

    That is a line I get a lot. 
    Pema joins us.

    Riddle Sideways: morning, Pema
    Adelene Dawner: 'morning, Pem ^.^
    Pema Pera: Hello Adams, Adelene, Riddle!
    Adams Rubble: I can't stay too long today
    Riddle Sideways: ummm, excuse me, but what are the blue feather looking things down your lion body?
    Adelene Dawner: Ah, yes. ^.^
    Pema Pera: how nice!!!
    Riddle Sideways: sure look and act like feathers
    Adams Rubble: :)

    Adelene flies about the room to show off the great winged cat av.  Lands and moves onto Pema's lap.  Within seconds is purring in contentment.  This is a big cat with a loud purr.

    Riddle Sideways: now you are showing off :)
    Pema Pera: featherweight Adelene :)
    Adelene Dawner: mmhmm ^.^
    Riddle Sideways: ah, purring in Pema's lap
    Adelene Dawner likes laps. ^.^
    Adams Rubble: a puma for Pema
    Pema Pera likes cats
    Riddle Sideways: personally I have been having a bad cat morning
    Adelene Dawner: oh?
    Riddle Sideways: one (of my 3) woke me at 4am
    Riddle Sideways: and I had not gone to bed until 1.5
    Adelene Dawner: eee.
    Riddle Sideways: was playing music last night
    Riddle Sideways: the drummer has a new gong type object
    Riddle Sideways: when he ends a song hitting it
    Riddle Sideways: it throws me right into one of those 9-sec events
    Pema Pera: :)
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^

    The normal ending of a song is an edge moment.  Reflection on how much that song gave to us.  Anticipation of the next song to start.  A normal time to take a deep breath, settle and await the transition.
    Now add to the experience the sound of a gong.  A sound that for many months has keyed the moment when for a few seconds I should slice out of current state, experience/play/watch Being, jot down a comment and then reinstate the current stack.
    "There once was a note.   Listen." - who

    Corvuscorva enters, but doesn't sit down with us for a little while.

    Adelene Dawner: Corvi!
    Pema Pera: Hi Corvi!
    Adams Rubble: Hello Corvi :)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Corvi
    Adelene Dawner: You are *late*, Love. I've already found a lap. ;(
    Pema Pera: Cats can observe 9-sec (or longer) when they watch a bird or mouse
    Adelene Dawner: I was actually thinking about that ,a while ago - purring, particularly - cats don't just purr when they're happy, yanno. That's just the situation when most people are close enough to hear it.
    Riddle Sideways: my cats can BeCome the wood deck while waiting to catch a bird
    Adelene Dawner: I think it more accurately means 'I'm *present*'
    Pema Pera wondering what we are trying to catch . . . .
    Bell: *ding*
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Pema Pera: (or what Adelene may want to catch>)
    Adelene Dawner rumblechuckles.
    Pema Pera: (too bad sounds don't carry over into the chat log)
    Pema Pera: (this must be a confusing session to read! Adelene's flying didn't make it either into the text)
    Pema Pera: perhaps we need to make videos, machinemas, is that what they are called?
    Adelene Dawner shrugs. "I suppose I could add a chat comment to my purr button."
    Riddle Sideways: (some chat member should comment into the log)
    Pema Pera: (btw, I'll have to leave in 15 minutes or so; in between an SL meeting and an RL meeting)
    Riddle Sideways: ok, you usually are not here this time of day
    Adelene Dawner: And Admas is leaving early... guess that leaves your lap, Riddle. ^.-
    Riddle Sideways: so it is nice to have your virtual lap stop by
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Riddle Sideways: for a cat sitting
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Pema Pera: I'm trying to come in more regularly . . . have been very busy these last two months, starting up Kira, but now that is running quite well -- yesterday we had two events with ten to twenty avs each, and this morning we just had one with more than a dozen again
    Adams Rubble: Riddles cats will be jealous
    Pema Pera: I just gave a talk in the Kira Cafe, for the Japanese evening session
    Adelene Dawner: Wow, Pem. I'll have to start coming by more often. ^.^
    Riddle Sideways: wow, great attendence
    Pema Pera: yesterday we had "ask an astronomer" first, then "happy hour"
    Pema Pera: the HH is everyday at 2 pm SLT
    Pema Pera: tomorrow also German evening -- looking forward to talking with Wol :)
    Adams Rubble: yes, wow!
    Riddle Sideways: darn, for the next few weeks I go into an office
    Pema Pera: go into an office??
    Riddle Sideways: new contract/job
    Pema Pera: ah!
    Riddle Sideways: that I have to play politics before working out of home
    Riddle Sideways: question: so is the master recorder handling everything now?
    Riddle Sideways: is it posting?
    Adelene Dawner: Nope.
    Riddle Sideways: ok
    Adams Rubble: We each in our own way are recorders
    Riddle Sideways: exactly true
    Pema Pera: Riddle, if I may ask, how is the 9-sec changing over time; is it different now from say a few months ago?
    Riddle Sideways: yes,
    Pema Pera: wb Corvi!
    Riddle Sideways: over the months it has sort of settled down
    Riddle Sideways: my early notes have it all over the board in subject matter
    Riddle Sideways: now it is very regular and can be targeted
    Riddle Sideways: there are subjects like APAPB that can be repeated for a week (almost)
    Pema Pera: can you say a bit more about APAPB?
    Riddle Sideways: probably should have started/maintained a blog
    Pema Pera: blogs help, yes, compared to making scattered notes -- I keep an electronic kind of journal for this
    Riddle Sideways: the introduction and investigation of APAPB threw me at first
    Riddle Sideways: each word held such depth
    Riddle Sideways: yet had trouble relating to its neighbor
    Pema Pera: :-), yes I know the feeling -- took me quite a while too!
    Riddle Sideways: there was a point when I stopped trying to get ONE resolution
    Pema Pera: and for me, the words are still becoming friends more intimately, the words and what they stand for
    Riddle Sideways: and PLAYED with how many combinations
    Pema Pera: yes, that's a great way to let APAPB express itself
    Riddle Sideways: to seed that the next 15min gong I would see something of APAPB
    Riddle Sideways: a gong would go off
    Riddle Sideways: and one of the words in a new way would throw itself at me
    Riddle Sideways: to be attached by a word or the edge effect of 2 words
    Riddle Sideways: and to blend with that force
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: wow.
    Bell: *ding*
    Riddle Sideways: Appreciate
    Pema Pera: wow indeed!
    Dakini Rhode is Online
    Riddle Sideways: we study so much religion and science here
    Riddle Sideways: and I am about music and arts
    Riddle Sideways: that the gong can take my
    Riddle Sideways: off places
    Riddle Sideways: to attach, defend , blend, observe the note the breath, the thoughts, the word
    Riddle Sideways: words
    Riddle Sideways: for 9-sec
    Riddle Sideways: then back to making dinner
    Riddle Sideways: then back to software bugs
    Pema Pera: :)
    Pema Pera: Riddle, if you have some snippets of the kind of investigations that you just mentioned, or some that you are going to do from now on, I think it would be very inspiring for all of us if you could send some of them to us through the google playasbeing email group.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire really hopes he will blog
    Pema Pera: I had no idea you were working with APAPB so intensively
    Pema Pera: yes, me too, Corvi!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Riddle..I am...speechless with this...
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: it's beautiful, aweing.
    Riddle Sideways: my nottes are as scattered as my life
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: makes me think.
    Pema Pera: fall is a good time to scatter :)
    Riddle Sideways: my palm phone, shards of paper, text files, etc. have the notes
    Riddle Sideways: need to collect for analys
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: please?
    Adelene Dawner: I like scattered notes better, anyway. Increases your chances of randomly coming across something useful when you need it but don't realize you do. ^.^
    Riddle Sideways: but, the gattering is such fun
    Corvuscorva Nightfire laughs.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: just scatter them where I can read them!
    Riddle Sideways: yes, adelene
    Adelene Dawner: hehehe
    Adams Rubble: Thank you for sharing your experiences Riddle. It would be great to hear more. Bye everyone :)
    Adelene Dawner: cya, Adams.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: bye, AdamS!
    Pema Pera: bye Adams!
    Riddle Sideways: bye Adams

    Riddle Sideways: lately I have been less secretive about recording notes
    Pema Pera: Riddle, the scatter-gatterer :) -- the new stage after agriculture and industrialization!
    Pema Pera: *gatherer
    Riddle Sideways: many people have started convers about what I am writting
    Riddle Sideways: ooooo I like that "Scatter-Gatherer"
    Pema Pera: (the secreat annals of Riddle, what's your price?)
    Pema Pera: (black market??)
    Riddle Sideways: you'll need to find them
    Riddle Sideways: I have secret internet places
    Pema Pera: so now we need to gather too ??
    Adelene Dawner: oo, treasure hunt ^.^
    Riddle Sideways: brb
    Pema Pera: well, I have to leave now . . . great seeing y'all!
    Pema Pera: And thank you so much, Riddle!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: bye, Pema!
    Pema Pera: I'll slip away here, out from under the Puma . . . .
    Corvuscorva Nightfire laughs
    Adelene Dawner purrrs... bye, Pem.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: can't fool her
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: she'll know
    PaB Listener Master: Removing "Pema Pera" from list.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire gets pounced
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Corvuscorva Nightfire hugs Adelene and waits for Riddle.
    Riddle Sideways: back, bye pema
    Riddle Sideways: sorry, RL had to deal
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: np...
    Adelene Dawner hmms, purrs absentmindedly at the hug, and brings up last nights' art purchases on her other screen.
    Riddle Sideways: o what did you get?
    Adelene Dawner: ACEOs. mini artworks, mostly prints.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: whats an ACEO?
    Adelene Dawner: It's a miniature piece of art, the size of a baseball card - other than that, it can be anything ^.^
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: oh
    Riddle Sideways: ah, I have a friend that does that
    Riddle Sideways: I did not know that name
    Adelene Dawner: Mostly they're collages, drawings, or paintings, but some are more interesting things like sewn cloth, ceramic, leather... all kinds of stuff.
    Riddle Sideways: he goes to gaming conventions etc.
    Bell: *ding*
    Adelene Dawner: cool :)
    Adelene Dawner: I've decided to do some decorating - I'm in the mood - but I think I'm going to be movign soon, so I needed to do something portable...
    Corvuscorva Nightfire laughs..where I work..we have a machine called the ARTAMATic.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: where for 5 bucksyou buy something the size of a ciggy pack
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: used to be a ciggy machine.
    Adelene Dawner: I came up with the idea of hanging cloth pannels and attaching playing-card sleves to them, for ACEOs and my collection of bus passes.

    Corvuscorva Nightfire: oh!
    Adelene Dawner: That sounds neat, Corvi. What kinds of 'somethings' are usually in it?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: too cool!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: mmm
    Adelene Dawner will take pics when it's done ^.^
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: sometimes little prints
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: or collages
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: or...sculptures, jewelry
    Adelene Dawner: neat!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: different things
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: each artist makes what the y want to make.
    Riddle Sideways: what kind of place (do you work) that has such a machine
    Riddle Sideways: and clients for it
    Corvuscorva Nightfire laughs
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I'll tell you in Im
    Riddle Sideways: yes, I did not want to get personal
    Riddle Sideways: ok
    Corvuscorva Nightfire smiles..it's not personal..
    Adelene Dawner: Just not for the log.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: right
    Riddle Sideways: there is limited numbers of places an Artimatic vending machine would go over
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: yes...indeed.
    Adelene Dawner: ooo, this, so pretty... http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...ng_id=16676670
    Riddle Sideways: yes it is
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: tis.
    Adelene Dawner: I do keep to a pretty strict $5 limit, though, unles it's something truly spectacular.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire smiles.
    Adelene Dawner: There's still lots of choices below that benchmark :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: yep
    Riddle Sideways: could you make you own?
    Adelene Dawner: Perhaps. I'm not so good at drawing, but I could watercolor a background and collage it.
    Riddle Sideways: those magnetic word collections work nicely
    Adelene Dawner: mm.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: leaves, stuff found
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: sometimes my favorite things are not made.
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Riddle Sideways: gathered?
    Riddle Sideways: gather some of the scatter and put it up on the fridge
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: yes!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: gathered.
    Riddle Sideways: using the magnetic words
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: ooooo
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nice
    Riddle Sideways: I may do that
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: envisions.
    Riddle Sideways: we got a new refridge
    Riddle Sideways: and have yet to put the old magnets back up
    Riddle Sideways: very strange to have a big white wall in the kitchen
    Riddle Sideways: slowly magnets and report cards and shopping list are going back up
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: laughs
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: they cannot be long kept from their post
    Bell: *ding*
    Adelene Dawner: I'm going to have to dissapear shortly, as soon as Three gets on.
    Riddle Sideways: amazing how the chat subjects come out of the ... (being here)
    Riddle Sideways: about scatter
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Riddle Sideways: about gather
    Riddle Sideways: oh yes I need to go too
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods. to Ade
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: yes
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: ok all

    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: oof
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: you're hard to shift, Ade.
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Riddle Sideways: purrr....
    Corvuscorva Nightfire giggles at Riddle.
    Adelene Dawner sits on Corvi and purrs, not going anywhere yet!
    Riddle Sideways: sorry Carvi, you can't get up
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Corvuscorva Nightfire sits then, knowing they are right.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: it's hard enough to get out from under a little cat.
    Riddle Sideways: loud contented PURRRRRR....
    Corvuscorva Nightfire grins, happy.
    Riddle Sideways: Ade-lioness is twice your size
    Adelene Dawner: hehehe
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: yep
    Riddle Sideways: well folks, I need to go shower and start the day
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: awww
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: ok.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: enjoy your day riddle.
    Riddle Sideways: as always it has been great fun
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: thank you for the bits you shared
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: i think I might be able to use them for myself a little.
    Adelene Dawner: cya Riddle.
    Riddle Sideways: oops, I sunk
    Riddle Sideways: and am stuck
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: this floor has been trecherous lately.
