    The Guardian for this meeting was Sylectra. The comments are by Sylectra.

        Adelene Dawner: Hi Buddha, Eliza. ^.^
        Eliza Madrigal: Hi Adelene, buddha :)
        Eliza Madrigal: buddha's red tonight!

    Buddha Nirvana was wearing a glowing red light of some kind. It was actually very pretty, like looking into the sunset on the water. He was his own mood candle, sort of.

        Adelene Dawner: He's not rezzed yet, for me.
        Adelene Dawner: oh... yes he is... having highlight transparent on doesn't work with that glow, apparently.
        Eliza Madrigal: Ah, and you look lovely Adelene :)
        Adelene Dawner giggles. "Thank you."
        Adelene Dawner: Hi, Pila ^.^
        Eliza Madrigal: Pila, ello
        Pila Mulligan: greetings
        buddha Nirvana: hi pila:)
        Pila Mulligan: I hope everyone is well and happy
        Eliza Madrigal: Well and happy here
        Adelene Dawner: Not bad. Still a bit twitchy... had to deal with a horde of teenagers earlier, eurrrrrgh. ^.-
        Pila Mulligan: fun :)
        Eliza Madrigal: Oh fun.
        Pila Mulligan: sl or rl?
        Adelene Dawner: Part of a gig - fairly small part. I'll be ok.
        Adelene Dawner: SL.
        Pila Mulligan: :)
        buddha Nirvana: i bumped into some in rl, strange creatures
        Eliza Madrigal: Oh?
        Pila Mulligan: yes there was a flock gathered in front of the store I jst came from too
        Pila Mulligan: maybe they are planning something :0
        buddha Nirvana: same here pila
        Eliza Madrigal: :)
        buddha Nirvana: they were swarming the iles
        Pila Mulligan: worse, mine were all eating ice cream
        buddha Nirvana: must be the nectar
        Eliza Madrigal: The red looks great in sunset buddha
        buddha Nirvana: nice:)
        Pila Mulligan: an aura?
        Adelene Dawner: Buddha has a bright red shiny aura thing today - it's particle based, so you might not be able to see it.
        buddha Nirvana: ah yes, sorry pila
        Pila Mulligan: what does a shiny red aura signify? (if anything?)
        buddha Nirvana: not all that much to me, it looks nice, i think

    We were surprised to learn that there was little significance to Buddha's roseate glow.

        Pila Mulligan: :)
        buddha Nirvana: i never investigated auras that much
        Pila Mulligan: Susi often has a kind of cloud like aura
        buddha Nirvana: im sure they're there, though
        Eliza Madrigal: I know what colors conjure as far as feelings, but not sure what "official" folks might say :))
        Adelene Dawner hmms and grins a little, reminded of what she was telling Pila about synesthesia the other day.
        Pila Mulligan: is there an official, I wonder?
        buddha Nirvana: this one i have, red, it looks as if i'm out of a david lynch film. very surreal
        Pila Mulligan: I wonder if there was a large survey of color and associated feelings, etc, what red would signify

    (There have been many surveys, but Cailin Boyle’s book "Color Harmony for the Web” states that red signifies danger, excitement, fire, passion, blood, or fight or flight. However, it's worth noting that color is interpreted differently depending upon the culture in which it is perceived. More info: http://www.infovis.net/printMag.php?num=96&lang=2)

        Eliza Madrigal: :) No...no officials to me, but some have very definite charts :)
        Pila Mulligan: I believe red is a color of celebration in some asian cultures.
        Eliza Madrigal: Brides wear red
        Pila Mulligan: hi Sylectra
        Sylectra Darwin: hi! Sorry I am late.
        Eliza Madrigal: Sylectra, hi!
        Adelene Dawner: Hi Syl :)
        Sylectra Darwin: Windows updated itself and made Windows disappear.
        Pila Mulligan: :)
        Pila Mulligan: we're kind of just chatting without a topic
        Sylectra Darwin: that sounds organic
        Sylectra Darwin: Buddha, are you glowing?
        Pila Mulligan: Buddha's red glow was one of the non-topic chattings :)
        Pila Mulligan: also, the recent appearance of groups of teeangers in our lives
        Pila Mulligan: and things associated with colors :)
        Sylectra Darwin: Groups of teenagers? what was that about?
        Pila Mulligan: Ade had just come from a SL event with a group of teens
        Pila Mulligan: Buddha mentioned he had just encountered a group in rl
        Pila Mulligan: and I just came from a store where a dozen teenage girls were in a group eating ice cream
        Pila Mulligan: so there seems to be something in the stars
        Eliza Madrigal: :) Patterns

    We had a quorum of cooks and the conversation took shape in that direction.

        Pila Mulligan: here's an odd topic: favorite recipes -- any interest?
        Eliza Madrigal: Sure
        Pila Mulligan: I just made a creamy garlic sauce that is cool
        Pila Mulligan: take a clove of garlic and clean off the skins
        Sylectra Darwin: How about dumplings with tofu cream sauce?
        Pila Mulligan: sounds good Sylectra
        Pila Mulligan: put lime juice in the the garlic
        Pila Mulligan: fill about a third of the blender container with the lime juice
        Pila Mulligan: blend them until the garlic is mixed with the lime
        Pila Mulligan: then *slowly* add olive oil
        Pila Mulligan: with the blender at high speed
        Pila Mulligan: if you get the right mix, it is like a hollandaise sauce, very creamy
        Eliza Madrigal: Quite a lot of lime, but sounds terrific
        Eliza Madrigal: I'm surprised by that
        Sylectra Darwin: That sounds great, Pila!
        Pila Mulligan: otherwise it may be a little oily
        Pila Mulligan: it is yummy, use for making other sauces or anything
        Pila Mulligan: salad dressing ... :)
        Pila Mulligan: dip
        Pila Mulligan: how about the dumplings with tofu cream sauce Sylectra?
        Adelene Dawner: Hi, Nos. ^.^
        Sylectra Darwin: Hi Nossie, join us?
        Sylectra Darwin: Well, you buy the veggie dumplings and steam them or saute them.
        Sylectra Darwin: You get some silken tofu and blend in the blender with some tamari or soy sauce.
        Eliza Madrigal: MM Like these...simple :)
        Sylectra Darwin: there's a bus out there.
        Sylectra Darwin: behind you.

    Nostrum Forder had brought a bus with her and was setting a bus stop in place as well.

        Pila Mulligan: sounds delicious Sylectra
        Eliza Madrigal: We going somewhere?
        Pila Mulligan: silken tofu blends well with things
        Nostrum Forder: Bus is here.
        Pila Mulligan: :)
        Pila Mulligan: nice bus and bus stop
        Eliza Madrigal: Hmm
        Nostrum Forder: We all of us are on a journey.
        Nostrum Forder: and exact change is required.
        Pila Mulligan: is it the magic bus?
        Nostrum Forder: The trick is to not fall asleep and miss your stop.
        Pila Mulligan: :)
        Pila Mulligan: then you have to go around again?
        Eliza Madrigal: Won't it come back around again
        Pila Mulligan: if you miss it
        Sylectra Darwin: I once took a legendary trip with Nos across the ocean in SL.
        Eliza Madrigal: Hah
        Sylectra Darwin: In the bus.
        Pila Mulligan: wow, it swims

        Eliza Madrigal: Now we're talking
        Pila Mulligan: should we take a bus ride?
        Nostrum Forder: Probably not
        Nostrum Forder: it's a symbolic bus.
        Pila Mulligan: oops, the log cannot accompany the bus :)
        Sylectra Darwin: hehe
        Sylectra Darwin: perhaps after the meeting we can!
        Sylectra Darwin: Wish we could take the meeting in the bus.
        Nostrum Forder: no, the bus is deadly.
        Sylectra Darwin: The bus comes with intriguing sit poses.
        Nostrum Forder: What are we talking about?
        Eliza Madrigal: :) Recipes
        Sylectra Darwin: recipes.
        Sylectra Darwin: I just described steamed dumplings with tofu cream sauce. Nummy.
        Nostrum Forder: Have a bus of your own, Adelene.
        Adelene Dawner: ^.^ thanks
        Pila Mulligan: Sylectra, do you have a favorite brand of veggie dumplings?
        Sylectra Darwin: There's one with a panda on the bag.
        Sylectra Darwin: It's in the Wal-Mart neighborhood market.
        Pila Mulligan: ok, I have problems sometimes with packaged foods not being anywhere close to what I hoped for
        Pila Mulligan: I'll look for the panda
        buddha Nirvana: i have a strange preference for salad
        buddha Nirvana: in that i like to heat it up before i eat it
        Pila Mulligan: that is strange, buddha
        buddha Nirvana: yea..
        Eliza Madrigal: Hot lettuce?
        Pila Mulligan: even the lettuce?
        Pila Mulligan: does it wilt?
        buddha Nirvana: yea, i do enjoy a nuked carrot too
        Adelene Dawner: That sounds good, actually.
        Sylectra Darwin: wilted lettuce - dunno.
        buddha Nirvana: it is Ad, a choice of dressing, i like salad cream and pepper
        Sylectra Darwin: but I like wilted spinach salad.
        Eliza Madrigal: Oh, with spinach yes
        Pila Mulligan: yes, heated spinach for sure, but lettuce would lose its texture it seems
        buddha Nirvana: not so much, it stays intact..
        Pila Mulligan: cool
        buddha Nirvana: like a light cabbage
        Pila Mulligan: popcorn is fun on salad when you have no croutons
        buddha Nirvana: nice in the winter
        buddha Nirvana: a big bowl of heated salad
        Adelene Dawner pokes through her daily stuff, and blinks. "It's ash Wednesday, today."
        buddha Nirvana: tomato carrot, cucumber
        buddha Nirvana: big*
        Pila Mulligan: nice
        Pila Mulligan: is it really Ade?
        Adelene Dawner: Apparently.
        Pila Mulligan: seems early
        Eliza Madrigal: I cooked *perfect* asparagus a few weeks ago...had always had issues with it before..felt like a major success
        Adelene Dawner shrugs, points at http://getangrywithme.com/
        Pila Mulligan: it was the 25th
        Pila Mulligan: and not early :)
        Eliza Madrigal: Wed yesterday here :)
        buddha Nirvana: did you have some butter or marg with it Eliza, i think thats quite a nice thing
        Pila Mulligan: Ade is in one of the craters of the moon :)
        Adelene Dawner laughs. "Goes to show how oriented to relaity *I* am..."
        Adelene Dawner: *reality
        Pila Mulligan: there are in a later time zone
        Eliza Madrigal: hahha so this is what happens eh

        Eliza Madrigal: crater dumplings with garlic sauce
        Pila Mulligan: it sounds interesting
        Eliza Madrigal: :) I'm not
        buddha Nirvana: its an acquired thing pila, im sure you wont dislike it
        buddha Nirvana: acquired*
        Pila Mulligan: do you do it in a microwave or an oven?
        buddha Nirvana: yes, about 1 minute should be enough
        buddha Nirvana: 45 - 60 secs
        Pila Mulligan: well, i have some left over lettuce, and this would be just the experiment
        Pila Mulligan: in fact ... brb
        buddha Nirvana: try some tomatoes, they heat up very nicely
        Pila Mulligan: ok
        buddha Nirvana: and have a couple of slices of bread to accompany it
        Adelene Dawner: Hi, CorviCorvi ^.^
        buddha Nirvana: thats another thing, i sometimes put bread in with salad and cheese
        Eliza Madrigal: Corvuscorva, hello
        buddha Nirvana: and eat with a knife and fork
        Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi all!
        Sylectra Darwin: Corvi, hello.
        buddha Nirvana: Hi corvi
        Eliza Madrigal: Sounds filling, buddha...substantial
        Sylectra Darwin: Okay let's get serious here and talk about miso soup.
        buddha Nirvana: no, its quite light
        Eliza Madrigal: :)
        buddha Nirvana: an inbetween meal snack
        buddha Nirvana: divine!
        Eliza Madrigal: I've never cooked miso soup..tips>?
        Eliza Madrigal: I need to go sit for a while before bed. Thanks all :)

        buddha Nirvana: NIte eliza:)
        buddha Nirvana: oops
        Sylectra Darwin: Well, brown miso is better than the others for the soup.
        Pila Mulligan: hi Corvi
        Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi, Pila.
        Pila Mulligan: well, I didn't have tomatoes, so I used cukes and onin, and garlic sauce with a little pepper
        Pila Mulligan: the lettuce didn't wilt -- did 30 seconds
        Pila Mulligan: and now ... to taste it :)
        buddha Nirvana: :))
        Corvuscorva Nightfire grins.
        Pila Mulligan: buddha this is very interesting :)
        buddha Nirvana: yes, onion is great with pepper
        Sylectra Darwin: yum yum pila.
        buddha Nirvana: haha:)
        buddha Nirvana: i love it
        Pila Mulligan: reminds me a little of sauerkraut
        buddha Nirvana: not had it for a little while though
        Pila Mulligan: Corvi, buddha warms his salads
        buddha Nirvana: ea, i can see that
        Pila Mulligan: it is odd, but not bad
        Pila Mulligan: not as bad as you might think
        buddha Nirvana: peppers are nice with it too, chilli peppers
        buddha Nirvana: i often put some pickled salad on the top, nice contrast with the hot
        Sylectra Darwin: that sounds good too buddha.
        buddha Nirvana: and vinegar goes well with it
        buddha Nirvana: yes, its yum
        Corvuscorva Nightfire: whatcha doin, Nos?
        Corvuscorva Nightfire: waiting for the bus?
        Nostrum Forder: yeah

    Nos was sitting at her own bus stop.

        Nostrum Forder: change of scenery
        Corvuscorva Nightfire grins.

    Nos jumped in the bus and drove off.

        Sylectra Darwin: there goes the bus
        Corvuscorva Nightfire: i missed it.
        buddha Nirvana: cant hear it, very eco-friendly

    Having taken a short joy ride, she was back with the group.

        Nostrum Forder: Hmmm
        Nostrum Forder: we must all be mediatating.
        Sylectra Darwin: Corvi, nice pics of Nos' bus!
        Corvuscorva Nightfire: thanks.
        Corvuscorva Nightfire: thanks for the appearance of bus, Nos.
        Nostrum Forder: it runs on an ecclectic schedule
        Corvuscorva Nightfire nods.
        Corvuscorva Nightfire: such that i constantly miss it.
        Sylectra Darwin: Nos is in a cute mood, lightening ours too.

    Nos was throwing particles of color and light into the pavilion. Streaks and bouncing round balls played across the serene architecture of the pavilion.

        buddha Nirvana: ty corvi
        Sylectra Darwin: Do any of you have the log from the very beginning?
        Sylectra Darwin: I have it from 14 minutes in.
        Sylectra Darwin: pretty sparklers!
        Adelene Dawner: Why not just grab it from the logger?
        Sylectra Darwin: how do you do that?
        buddha Nirvana: pretty
        Adelene Dawner: click the little pyramid in the middle of the fountain and select 'claim' on the menu that pops up.
        Sylectra Darwin: cool!
        Sylectra Darwin: so does it go into my email?
        Adelene Dawner: Nope, you get a link to a web page.
        Sylectra Darwin: Nos, I especially love the bouncy color balls.
        Nostrum Forder: Hmm
        Sylectra Darwin: in an IM in SL or ?

    The group briefly disappeared under a blanket of pearlescent fog.

    Nostrum Forder: fog mode is pretty foggy.
        Adelene Dawner: in IM - after the session ends.
        Sylectra Darwin: okies, thank you.
        Adelene Dawner: ^.^
        Nostrum Forder: It's time for me to go home and take my socks off.
        Adelene Dawner: cya, Nos
        Corvuscorva Nightfire: bye, Nos.
        Pila Mulligan: bye Nos

        Corvuscorva Nightfire: bye, Ade.

        Nostrum Forder: Have a pleasant evening, all.
        Sylectra Darwin: see ya on the other side
        Adelene Dawner: (Three managed to delete half of my lair, so I'm remodeling. ^.^)
