    Adelene was the guardian that night. She sent me, Pema, the chat log, which I put up. I also provided the title.

    Adelene Dawner: Here comes Threedee :)
    Adelene Dawner: Hullo, Love ^.^
    Claire Beltran: Hi, Threedee! ^-^/
    Threedee Shepherd: Hi, Love, Hello Claire,
    Threedee Shepherd: I have been over in the teen grid, building. Put up the train station and enlarged it to also be the land office
    Adelene Dawner nods.
    Claire Beltran: A teen grid?
    Threedee Shepherd: Yes
    Adelene Dawner: Claire and I were talking about social stuff and making friends, before we came over - maybe you'd be useful with some insights?
    Threedee Shepherd: There is a separate grid for folks 13-18
    Threedee Shepherd: Normally adults are not allowed, but we are because we are building a project there.
    Threedee Shepherd: Where did you get to on the making friends conversation?
    Adelene Dawner: Right to the point where I go 'don't ask me, I have no idea'. ^.^
    Adelene Dawner: Hullo, Gaya ^.^
    Threedee Shepherd: what are your ideas Claire?
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Claire Beltran: My ideas?
    Claire Beltran: I was talking with Adelen about how I'm frustrated taht I can't approach and mingle with any of my fellow students.
    Threedee Shepherd: What keeps you from approaching them?
    Threedee Shepherd: Any idea about that, Claire?
    Faenik: why not?
    Adelene Dawner pokes Claire. "Have we lost you?"
    Claire Beltran: Oh! Sorry.
    Adelene Dawner: :)
    Claire Beltran: It's because I'm afraid.
    Threedee Shepherd: afraid that or of what?
    Claire Beltran: I feel like very time I talk to another person, it's like a ob interview, and everything I say 'wrong' counts against me. I also fear that being too forward would cause people to be put off by me.
    Threedee Shepherd: When you "take a step back from yourself" and re-read what you just said, how would YOU respond to it?
    Threedee Shepherd: Is there a place where you and others in your class gather to eat, study or for coffee?
    Claire Beltran: Not that I know of... they all run off to other classes.
    Threedee Shepherd: Just before or after class, is there anyone you say hello to, or typically sit near.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ^^
    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Claire Beltran: I don't know. It's hard to keep track of who I talk to.
    Claire Beltran: There are one or who who hold my attention from time to time, but it's never really focused on one person, I think.
    Threedee Shepherd: MMhmm. Is there a club or group you could visit, perhaps related to music or singing?
    Claire Beltran: I'm not sure... part of it may be that due to a couple of things, I just feel too tired to try anything else when class is through and just go home.
    Threedee Shepherd: How many classes are you taking?
    Adelene Dawner: Hold up... do me a favor and describe 'tired', Claire?
    Faenik loves wells!
    Claire Beltran: I guess physically tired? Or it might be reluctance. I'm not entirely sure... I've been having sleeping problems.
    Adelene Dawner: Hullo, Roshan.
    Roshan Burner: HI
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Roshan Burner: WHT R UPPL DOING
    Adelene Dawner: We're having a meeting, about lif and reality and stuff. Care to join us?
    Adelene Dawner: *life and etc.

    Roshan Burner: sure
    Adelene Dawner: Hi Corvi ^.^
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Roshan Burner: who r these animals? they talk too?
    Adelene Dawner chuckles. "I'm the tawny lion. Yes, I talk."
    Threedee Shepherd: Some people use animals as their avatar, like I do .
    Corvuscorva Nightfire giggles..hi, Gaya...whatcha doin' up?
    Roshan Burner: how does it feel to be a lion
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi Claire!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi Ade, Three.
    Claire Beltran: HEllo, Corvu!
    Adelene Dawner: I do have to ask - we record these sessions on our wiki at http://playasbeing.wik.is/ - do you mind being included in our records?
    Threedee Shepherd: I feel like the usual concerns of human-ness are in the background, and I am more natural
    Roshan Burner: hi
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Adelene Dawner: You can right-click on any of the cushions and select 'sit' to sit down, Roshan.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire pets Ade's paws and smiles at Claire.
    Adelene Dawner: Please sit, Roshan - and do you mind being recorded for our log?
    Roshan Burner: coulf u explain that pls. i am new to this
    Faenik giggles. that tickles.
    Adelene Dawner: right-click on any cushion and select 'sit' in the menu that comes up, to sit on that cushion.
    Roshan Burner: now what?
    Adelene Dawner: Ok. The other question was - we record these meetings. Do you mind being recorded?
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Roshan Burner: r u going vocal or just typing
    Adelene Dawner: just typing.
    Roshan Burner: ok
    Adelene Dawner: Did you want to continue, Claire?

    Roshan Burner: no wonder why i am hungry. any restaurant around?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire shakes her head..none nearby.
    Roshan Burner: can some one tell me how i can travel to place with shops and restaurants
    Claire Beltran: Actually... I think it might be a good idea to pick up where we left off now.
    Faenik: indeed?
    Roshan Burner: ok
    Threedee Shepherd: Claire, instead of my (or others) poking, is there a question YOU would like to ask about making friends?
    Claire Beltran: Me?
    Threedee Shepherd: yes, you
    Corvuscorva Nightfire smiles and looks curious.
    Claire Beltran: Hmm...
    Claire Beltran: How best to do it? That would be a start.
    Threedee Shepherd: Well, people like to be helpful, when asked. Also, people like to talk about themselves when asked? those are ways to open a chat.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods and smiles at Claire...yes.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: and ummm...thanks for asking the other day.
    Faenik loves wells!
    Faenik: could be

    Adelene Dawner yawns.
    Adelene Dawner is falling asleep...
    Claire Beltran stretches out on Adelene's side. "Oh, you aren't the only one."
    Adelene Dawner: We should go, then.
    Claire Beltran: Go where?
    Adelene Dawner: Bed?
    (Adelene: it did continue for a while after that, but was all social chatting, nothing of substance.)
