    Tarmel Udimo was guardian this morning. The comments are hers. This session was the first to usher in the second year of PaB. While modest in celebration, it was a very heartfelt hour, with a larger number of AV's showing up than usual. Several of us 'dressed' for the occasion. We also seemed to spend a long time saying hello. It felt like we needed to touch base with everyone that showed up.

    Adelene Dawner: Hi Tarmel, Pema :)
    Pema Pera: HI Tarmel!
    Susi Alcott: hi Pema
    Pema Pera: Hi Adelene, Susi!
    Susi Alcott: Hello Tarmel
    Tarmel Udimo: hi susi, pema, ade
    Tarmel Udimo: thought i would dress for the occasion, Pab's first birthday:-)
    Susi Alcott: ah
    Pema Pera: hehehe, looking fiery and feisty!
    Tarmel Udimo: yes fiery and feisty... a bit like Kate in Taming of the Shrew
    Pema Pera: :)
    Pema Pera: Hi Wol !
    Tarmel Udimo: and Ade has dressed too:-)
    Adelene Dawner: :)
    Tarmel Udimo: just realised it matches Pema's hair:-)
    Tarmel Udimo: hey Wol
    Wol Euler: good morning everyone! Happy birthday PaB!
    Pema Pera: wow, everybody getting so dressed up!
    Susi Alcott: good morning Wol :)
    Wol Euler is in the office and so may have to disappear randomly

    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Wol Euler smiles. It's been a great time, thank you so much for starting it, Pema
    Pema Pera: Tarmel, I bet you don't get such a crowd here on Wednesday early mornings very often :)
    Tarmel Udimo: nooooooooo
    Pema Pera: Thank you all for coming to make it possible, Wol!
    Pema Pera: Hi Stargate!
    Tarmel Udimo: hi Stargate
    Stargate Tone: Happy birth day PaB
    Wol Euler: hello Star
    Stargate Tone: Hello Gaya, Adelene, Tarmel, Pema, Wol, Susi
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hi there

    Stargate Tone: smiles *
    Stargate Tone: Hello Fael :)*
    Fael Illyar: Hi Everyone :)
    Tarmel Udimo: hey Fael
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Fael
    Susi Alcott: Hi Fael
    Wol Euler: morning fael!

    Pema then talked about the early days of PaB. It must have felt really poignant for him, acknowledging that his creation had survived for a whole year...


    Adelene Dawner wonders if Pema might have heard us singing to him in his sleep, four hours ago. :)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Pema Pera: ah, I wasn't asleep yet, four hours ago, but now that you mention it . . . . :-)
    Adelene Dawner: hehehe ^.^
    Tarmel Udimo: its 4;00am pema for you I think
    Pema Pera: yes, indeed!
    Pema Pera: and, haha, a year ago I was wiser and didn't get up at 4 am . . . :)
    Tarmel Udimo: grins
    Pema Pera: in April we only had 7 am, 1 pm, 7 pm
    Pema Pera: We started the 1 am in early May
    Tarmel Udimo: hummm
    Fael Illyar: do you remember the date?
    Pema Pera: but I'm really glad we did, so that we can now reach all time zones
    Pema Pera: May 6 I believe it was
    Tarmel Udimo: 1:00am's hard for most people but not today:-)
    Pema Pera: I feel touched seeing you all out here!
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Wol Euler smiles and gives your hand a squeeze
    Pema Pera: and seeing all that has happened over the whole year . . . .
    Pema Pera smiles back
    Fael Illyar: rather massive for 1am meeting today :)
    Pema Pera: yes
    Tarmel Udimo: ****Howlllzzzzzzzz****
    Pema Pera: hahaha !!!
    Play as Being 15 minute bell: Please observe 90 seconds of silence.
    Play as Being 15 minute bell: Thank you.
    Pema Pera: I really had no idea what t expect, when I started it all a year ago . . . or whether anything would happen at all, really
    Pema Pera: I just came to the original tea hut, told a few friends that I'd be there three times a day, and just waited to see what would happen
    Pema Pera: I was curious to try out that new idea of the 9 sec every 15 minutes myself, and beyond that, the more the merrier
    Wol Euler: we can consider that a testimonial to your powers of inspiratio, then :)
    Pema Pera: thank you, Wol -- and certainly also to the environment of SL and the wonderful people in it, such as all of you!
    Pema Pera: Nothing comparable happened in the year before, when I was trying a similar experiment in Qwaq
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Your enthusiam is something that keeps the group together partly I think.
    Wol Euler: heh
    Tarmel Udimo: hummm and wisdom
    Pema Pera bows and blushes
    Wol Euler: (to pema)
    Fael Illyar: Yes, Pema is important part of greeping the group together :)
    Pema Pera: groping to keep together :-)
    Squee: In the middle of a world that has always been a bit mad, the cat walks with confidence.
    Pema Pera: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.

    I then attached Moon's beautiful garden for all of us to enjoy.

    Pema Pera: A moonless garden!
    Fael Illyar: seems so :)
    Tarmel Udimo: yes where is Moooooooooooon?
    Pema Pera: yesterday Moon already set off quite some fireworks
    Fael Illyar: ah, the grass in named Tarmel :)
    Fael Illyar: *is
    Adelene Dawner: He's at work now. :)
    Tarmel Udimo: a present from moon?
    Tarmel Udimo: ahhh
    Gaya Ethaniel: How lovely... thank you Moon :)
    Pema Pera: ah, Tarmel, how nice!
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Tarmel Udimo: celebrations
    Tarmel Udimo: its raining where i am
    Tarmel Udimo: a downpour
    Tarmel Udimo: I have the door to my balcony open
    Tarmel Udimo: beautiful
    Tarmel Udimo: rain for thegarden
    Pema Pera: no wonder your garden sprouted here so quickly :)
    Tarmel Udimo: yes:-)

    We then went back to what everyone was doing and the beginings of PaB

    Fael Illyar: There's a bar in SL that I've agreed to do some bartendering at that opens first time next friday at 22:00 JST
    Pema Pera: where is that, Fael?
    Fael Illyar: Amemura sim
    Tarmel Udimo: JST?
    Fael Illyar: Japan Standard Time
    Tarmel Udimo: ahhh
    Pema Pera: 6 am SLT
    Wol Euler: ty, I was aobut to ask :)
    Wol Euler: sounds cool, fael.
    Stargate Tone gave you PaB 1.3.2009 1 hour meeting.
    Fael Illyar: It's Wild West themed :)
    Wol Euler: "have translator, will travel"
    Fael Illyar: I'm there to handle English speaking guests :)
    Pema Pera: and Finnish speaking?
    Fael Illyar: if any pop up :)
    Wol Euler: ty, star! we look positively mediaeval in that shot
    Tarmel Udimo: thanks Star, will post with Log
    Pema Pera: yes, thank you Stargate!
    GreenTea(Matcha): Mmmhh... enjoy the best green tea Tarmel Udimo
    Wol Euler: like chaucer's pilgrims in motley
    Fael Illyar gave you +++"Wild West Village"+++ Amemur, Amemura (115, 229, 21).
    Pema Pera: thank you, Fael
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles. You are becoming a serious SLer Tarmel.
    Stargate Tone: _/!\_
    Pema Pera: motley we are . . . .
    Wol Euler: but united in a quest, as they were
    Pema Pera: definitely!
    Wol Euler: and good friends and companions, as they were
    Pema Pera: so also a crew . ..
    Tarmel Udimo: yes can't seem to transfer though to you all the tea - its moon's i think

    Play as Being 15 minute bell: Please observe 90 seconds of silence.
    Pema Pera: wow, did it rain more ?
    Fael Illyar: new sim even :)
    Fael Illyar: I also have a branch shop set up there :)
    Pema Pera: oh, wow!
    Play as Being 15 minute bell: Thank you.
    Fael Illyar: Gaya, it's next friday
    Tarmel Udimo: sounds great fael
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ok :)
    Pema Pera: (sorry, forgot about the bell, must be gettin sleepy :)
    Tarmel Udimo: accidentally pressed TP
    Fael Illyar: although ... it's friday in Japan
    Tarmel Udimo: went for a fly in
    Fael Illyar wonders if that means saturday here
    Pema Pera: no, Friday here
    Pema Pera: 6 am on Friday still
    Fael Illyar: ok :)
    Tarmel Udimo: how do people feel about stopping for 90 secs - is it a distraction?
    Fael Illyar: so the time difference with SL is +16 :)
    Pema Pera: no, Tarmel, I like it, and in many sessions I have heard very positive comments about it
    Pema Pera: during the few days it has been here
    Gaya Ethaniel likes it :)
    Susi Alcott is Offline
    Pema Pera: so thank you for your original suggestion that led to it, Tarmel!
    Pema Pera: and that then led Storm to implement it
    Tarmel Udimo: ty and ty to Storm, but I have been concerned that one can lose energy because of it
    Pema Pera: or gain :-)
    Wol Euler: yes, I am waiting to see how that works out. It certainly slows the discussion, but htat might not be a bad thing (thinks of Sam)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Pauses in fact do the opposite for me - energising I mean.
    You decline 'Irie Vibes' Main Dancehall from A group member named Annc Idziak.
    Tarmel Udimo: ok
    Fael Illyar: It depends on how you do the pauses :)
    Pema Pera: in general, using text instead of voice has a similar effect already, continuously . . .
    Fael Illyar: what you drop and what you don't.
    Pema Pera: . . . which was a conscious choice right at the start
    Pema Pera: after using voice only for a year in Qwaq
    Pema Pera: I found it far more peaceful
    Tarmel Udimo: hummm
    Pema Pera: plus it left a trace
    Pema Pera: and it gives more people an opportunity to jump in
    Stargate Tone is Offline
    Pema Pera: without having to wait your turn, which may never come with more than three people talking
    Tarmel Udimo: true
    Pema Pera: also forces you to speak in more succinct way
    Susi Alcott is Online
    Tarmel Udimo: now if only we could have an inbuilt spell checker:-)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Susi Alcott: sry; pc probs
    Wol Euler: naaah, htat would spoil all the fun
    Tarmel Udimo: wb susi
    Susi Alcott: ty
    Pema Pera: yes, would leave the typo inspired discussions out
    Tarmel Udimo: grins
    Fael Illyar: those are sometimes nice as well :)
    Tarmel Udimo: nods
    Tarmel Udimo: good luck on Friday fael, it may be a tad early for me or late depends on whether I've been out and about:-)
    Pema Pera: 6 am SLT is 8 am for you, Tarmel?
    Tarmel Udimo: no
    Pema Pera: sorry, I mean:
    Pema Pera: 10 pm JST is midnight for you?
    Pema Pera: you're two hours ahead of Japan?
    Tarmel Udimo: ohh okay
    Pema Pera: so 18 hours ahead of SL time?
    Tarmel Udimo: 7:00am used to be 2;00am
    Tarmel Udimo: so now its 1:00am I think
    Pema Pera: what time is it now for you?
    Tarmel Udimo: 7:44pm wednesday
    Pema Pera: ah, yes, 18 hours ahead
    Tarmel Udimo: ty

    Play as Being 15 minute bell: Please observe 90 seconds of silence.
    Play as Being 15 minute bell: Thank you.
    Pema Pera: well, I think I'll try to get a bit more sleep.
    Pema Pera: It's really wonderful to celebrate here with you all !
    Tarmel Udimo: is this your last week long session?
    Pema Pera: But I have three more celebrations coming up, so I'd better be rested a bit beforehand :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel: I'm afraid I have to get going... I and a sister will demonstrate a type of tea ceremony then there will be a dance at 9 am SLT. A repeat will be at 7 pm SLT.
    Wol Euler: 'night pema, see you in five hours :)
    Pema Pera: this is session 25 for me, Tarmel, three more to go :)
