    Solobill was the guardian and the (limited as of now) comments are mine.  I had to leave about a third of the way in, and the rest of the session was primarily a welcoming session of newbies to SL...

    I arrived and Scathach ssoon joined me.

    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Solobill
    Solobill Laville: Hey, Scath
    Solobill Laville: How are you?
    Scathach Rhiadra: good, ty, and you?
    Solobill Laville: Oh, fine, time of year...work...:)
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Solobill Laville: You are a student, is that correct?
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, part-time, mature student
    Adams Rubble is Online
    Solobill Laville: hehe, me too, depends what "mature" means I guess...
    Scathach Rhiadra: :))
    Scathach Rhiadra: I'm actually studying the same course as Becka finesmith this year
    Solobill Laville: Very cool
    Solobill Laville: Did you meet there?
    Solobill Laville: Hiya, Adams
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, we live in different countries, would never have met otherwise
    Adams Rubble: Hello Scath and Bill :)
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello adams
    Solobill Laville: ah, so an online course?
    Scathach Rhiadra: online and distance
    Solobill Laville: This is very interesting!
    Solobill Laville: And she thought you may want to check this out?
    Scathach Rhiadra: which, PaB?
    Solobill Laville: Yes, or SL too I guess?
    Scathach Rhiadra: no, the university has an island in Sl, thats where I met Becka
    Solobill Laville: ah, ok
    Scathach Rhiadra: and I met Pema at a zen session
    Solobill Laville: very good
    Solobill Laville: Adams, what do ya have fer us today?? ;)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Solobill Laville: hehe
    Adams Rubble: I dominated the talk at the 7 am session. I am content to listen :)
    Solobill Laville: Well, if you just pick up where you left off
    Solobill Laville: it will be a smooth transition for our dear readers
    Solobill Laville: :)
    Adams Rubble: Actually I am where I was, except further along the timeline :)
    Adams Rubble: I have been dealing with an intrusive former self and received lots of advice this mrining
    Adams Rubble: morning
    Solobill Laville: ahhh
    Adams Rubble: I am in the process of just watching
    Adams Rubble: Corvi raised the question of "who" is talking about the former self
    Adams Rubble: I don't have an answer to that yet
    Adams Rubble: If I am not careful I may just keep typing and then you won't have a chance to talk :)
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Adams Rubble: Hi Wol :)
    Wol Euler: hello adams, scath, solo
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Wol:)
    Solobill Laville: Greetings, Wol
    Solobill Laville: !
    Wol Euler smiles and nods at Mr. Laville.
    Wol Euler: nice jacket, adams! very suitable for the weather
    Adams Rubble: it gets very cold at the zen retreat :)
    Solobill Laville just ran in from shovelling snow...
    Solobill Laville: Yes, isn't it amazing these SL micro-climates...
    Wol Euler sighs wistfully. Snow!
    Adams Rubble: We're getting rain and sleet now
    Solobill Laville: We got anout 10" in the last 12 hours
    Wol Euler: luxury!
    Adams Rubble: wow Bill. Rain and sleet doesn't sound so bad
    Solobill Laville: THen warmed it up and sent it Adams' way
    Adams Rubble: that's OK BIll :)
    Solobill Laville: The kids prefer the snow ;)
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Solobill Laville: Hard to make a sleet-man
    Scathach Rhiadra: we hardly ever get snow:(
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Adams Rubble: It is easy....
    Solobill Laville: [13:10] Adams Rubble: Corvi raised the question of "who" is talking about the former self
    [13:11] Adams Rubble: I don't have an answer to that yet
    Adams Rubble: just get someone to stand outside for an hour
    Solobill Laville pokes Adams
    Solobill Laville ...gently...
    Solobill Laville: :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Solobill Laville: maybe when you do, you'll have to ask "who" is that?
    Adams Rubble hopes not (no more selves, please!!)
    Solobill Laville: Well, sometimes I can get into a mind-set where I can
    Solobill Laville: sense that, with no getting all caught up in "things"
    Solobill Laville: You can stand aside from yourself, so to speak
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Solobill Laville: And then that question becomes really quite relevant!!
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Adams Rubble: Steve made an interesting point that it is no use going over what is past
    Adams Rubble: in response to my raising an issue of bringing former self up to date
    Adams Rubble: ...better to try to move on
    Wol Euler nods.
    Wol Euler: generally good advice I think!
    Solobill Laville: Hey, all, I may have to unfortunately leave early...Can someone carry on and send me the log???
    Wol Euler: what, and abandon Storm to his fate?
    Solobill Laville: I guess so.... :P
    Adams Rubble: Yes, one of us will be here to the end, Bill
    Solobill Laville: thx
    Wol Euler nods. sure.
    Solobill Laville: Hey, all, I may have to unfortunately leave early...Can someone carry on and send me the log???
    Wol Euler: what, and abandon Storm to his fate?
    Solobill Laville: I guess so.... :P
    Adams Rubble: Yes, one of us will be here to the end, Bill
    Solobill Laville: thx
    Wol Euler nods. sure.

    Here I quickly made my exit...sorry...

    Wol Euler: well, that was a fast exit.
    Adams Rubble didn't get the joke about Storm
    Adams Rubble: yes fast exit :)
    Wol Euler: um, isn't really one. At yesterday's 1pm session, Storm and ??? (quilty maybe) were having an involved discussion, which I suggested carrying over into today's session
    Wol Euler: but given that storm hasn't showed up either, it's a moot point.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: Unless we play them
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Wol Euler: to be honest, I'd have to look in my logs to see what the topic was, mind like a sieve at the moment.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Wol Euler: very much not In The Moment, alas
    Adams Rubble: we could just discuss cricket :)
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: hello cikker, welcome to second life
    Adams Rubble: Hello cikker
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hi Cikker
    cikker2009 Arriaga: hi wol
    cikker2009 Arriaga: hi everethyng
    Wol Euler chuckles. Greeting the whole universe is good.
    Adams Rubble: yes

    Wol Euler: don't take it personally, cikker, but I usually like to talk to people for ahwile first :)
    cikker2009 Arriaga: yes
    cikker2009 Arriaga: like
    Wol Euler: I'm European, we take friendship a little more seriously than the Americans :)

    Wol Euler: Is anyone else experiencing a kind of newbie fatigue?
    Adams Rubble: Americans can make good friends
    Adams Rubble: yes, me
    Wol Euler: true!
    Scathach Rhiadra: there seem to be many around here
    Adams Rubble: It is a real drag on Sunday mornings...one after another
    Wol Euler nods. There must be a way to deal with them that doesn't involve the group shutting down for ten minutes each time
    Scathach Rhiadra: newbies, not americans:)
    Wol Euler: heheheheheh
    Adams Rubble: thanks Scath
    Wol Euler: yes, scath, I should have been more speific.

    Adams Rubble: There is an awfully big mess to be cleaned up

    Wol Euler nods soberly.

    stevenaia Michinaga: it may have an impact on my Latka party tomarrow
    Adams Rubble: What s a Latka Party?
    stevenaia Michinaga: Latka's potatoe pancake, hannukka tradition
    Scathach Rhiadra: sounds tasty:)
    Adams Rubble: I hope the weather does not interfere
    stevenaia Michinaga: if you like oil and potatoe
    Adams Rubble: Hills and ice don;t mix too well
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    stevenaia Michinaga: I'm going to head over to the Kira cafe, get a good seat...(at the bar, perhaps)
