PlayAsBeing Wiki > Chat Logs > 2009 > 01 > 2009.01.05 13:00 - One of the Most Productive PaB Sessions

Steven was the guardian that afternoon. He asked me, Pema, to put up the chat log for him. I also provided the title.

Wol Euler: hello Stim, happy new year.

Stim Morane: Hi Wol, same to you!

Stim Morane: Is this a new avatar?

Wol Euler: yep :)

Stim Morane: how many have you tried so far?

Wol Euler: I got ticked off at a discussion befre christmas, someone was talking about fat avatars and wondering why anyone would not want to look beautiful. Well, I couldn't let that go by.

Stim Morane: I see.

Wol Euler: and this is only the second shape I've used in this av. My alt has different bodies, of course.

Stim Morane: Yes

Wol Euler: I find hte beautyism of SL and the narrow definition of acceptable beauty quite annoying. Boring, in fact.

Stim Morane: That's an interesting topic.

Stim Morane: I guess it all boils down to what people think SL is supposed to be about.

Wol Euler: mmhmm

Wol Euler smiles. So what is SL about, Stim?

Stim Morane: I'd be the last to know.

Wol Euler chuckles.

Moon Fargis: hi you two :)

Wol Euler: hello moon! frohes neues Jahr!

Stim Morane: Hi Moon!

Moon Fargis: danke dir auch!:)

Moon Fargis: as i cant stay long atleast i wanted to say hi :)

Stim Morane: Oh. Well, happy New Year to you!

Wol Euler: that's a bold new avatar, moon.

Moon Fargis: happynew year to you too stim :)

Moon Fargis: oh its uiet old to be true :)

Moon Fargis: i just use it rareley

Moon Fargis purrzzzzzzzzz

Stim Morane: you created this sound?

Wol Euler: hello kade

Kade Enderfield: hello

Moon Fargis: hi

Stim Morane: Hi Kade

Kade Enderfield: im new just looking around sorry to bother

Moon Fargis: stim: no then i would be longer and louder :)

Stim Morane: I see. Well, I felt suitably soothed by it.

Moon Fargis: ok need to move again see yyou ^^/

Moon Fargis purrzzzzzzzzz

Stim Morane: Bye, Moon!

Wol Euler: bye moon, take care

Stim Morane: How are your technical projects going, Wol?

Wol Euler: well, I just got back into SL for the fisrt time yesterday, couldn't get online at all during hte holiday.

Wol Euler: it appears taht nothing has been done on hte autologging, but Fael hasn't been online for me to confirm that.

Stim Morane: You simply weren't able to log on?

Wol Euler: yep, coudn't find a fast enough connection in rural Saskatchewan.

Stim Morane: Oh, right.

Wol Euler: and annoyingly, my cousin who last time didn't have internet at all, now has highspeed DSL, so I _would_ have been able to get into SL there, but I didn't take my laptop with me that day :(

Stim Morane: You must be very hardy, to cope with the winters there.

Wol Euler smiles. I hated it as a child, and if I lived there fulltime I might still hate it.

Stim Morane: :)

Wol Euler: it's different when you are there as a tourist.

Stim Morane: I see. I have several friends who went to the university there. Brrr!

Wol Euler grins and nods.

Wol Euler: but y'know, people survive. You triple-glaze windows and have extra-strong car heaters put in

Wol Euler: and if it gets below -40°C the schools close :-)

Stim Morane: :)

Wol Euler: how were your holidays?

Stim Morane: I was too busy to take any time off.

Wol Euler: ah!

Wol Euler: or maybe awww

Wol Euler: depends on how you feel about "busy" I guess.

Wol Euler: were you at least enjoying it?

Stim Morane: I guess so. My days are pretty much the same, or as close to the same as I can make them.

Wol Euler: hmmmmmm

Wol Euler: would you care to say more about that?

Stim Morane: I haven't really thought about it.

Stim Morane: Since I spend a lot of time on meditation practice, that and related activities occupy most of any day.

Wol Euler: it sounds a bit like you have made a monastic life outside the monastery

Stim Morane: not always, but to some extent, yes.

Stim Morane: And you?

Wol Euler: well, yes :)

Wol Euler: my days do tend to look alike as well. Being largely self-employed I can do what I want when I want. Mostly.

Stim Morane: Yes, there are always wild-card factors.

Wol Euler: I see the difference between days mostly in the form of which other people are available to me :)

Stim Morane: Yes.

Stim Morane: Same here.

Wol Euler: and of course in Germany, the stores all close for the weekend on Saturday afternoons

Wol Euler: Sunday is still distinctive here, not like in most of North America.

Stim Morane: Yes.

Wol Euler: I suspect that won't last long though, active churchgoers are a minority here.

Stim Morane: There may be other reasons why that tradition will be maintained.

Wol Euler: I hope so, having seen both ways I think this is better.

Stim Morane: I would agree

Wol Euler: We seem to be unable to jump clear of the hamster-wheel of our own accord, so a little outside nudge to do so is a good thing.

Stim Morane: :)

Wol Euler: btw and apropos, is it this afternoon that you are talking with Pema about the prehistory?

Stim Morane: I hope not. I think it's tomorrow.

Wol Euler: ah, ok. don't worry on my account, I am jetlaggy and unable to track dates and times

Stim Morane: I think it's 1pm SLT Tuesday.

Wol Euler: good :) I look forward to hearing that.

Stim Morane: If you attend, please tell me what to say.

Wol Euler: oh, and I managed to track down a copy of I Am That! it's being ordered, my sister will mail it to me

Wol Euler: hehehehh

Stim Morane: You think I'm kidding ...

Stim Morane: :)

Wol Euler laughs. actually yes, I did.

Wol Euler: I do think of you as a "resident expert"

Wol Euler: one of those who knows what he's talking about.

Stim Morane: I freely admit that I know nothing of what is really pertinent here.

Stim Morane: What I usually teach would be extremely difficult to unpack at all, here, using text chat.

Stim Morane: So I'm open to some help!

Wol Euler: well, I'll be glad to offer whatever crumbs of assistance I can offer.

Stim Morane: Great.

Wol Euler sighs. two "offer"s in one sentence.

Stim Morane: I'll ignore it this one time.

Wol Euler: my brain is starting to spoin

Wol Euler: -o

Stim Morane: This scintillating conversation is becoming too much for both of us, perhaps.

Wol Euler: I fear so. this will not go down in history as one of the most productive PaB sessions.

Stim Morane: Are you heavily jet-lagged?

Wol Euler: couldn't get to sleep last night until 6am this morning, if that counts.

Stim Morane: Good heavens, sorry to hear that!

Wol Euler: it's like having a couple of cows sitting on my shoulders, where the angel and devil are supposed to sit and whisper

Stim Morane: Yes. I know the feeling.

Stim Morane: Well ... I should go. Thanks very much for dropping in and keeping me company, Wol!

Wol Euler: ok, good to see you Stim. Take care, rest up, keep your brain fresh for tomorrow's encounter :)

Stim Morane: :)

Wol Euler: 'night, stim

Stim Morane: Bye, Wol!
