    A lean form materialized wearing boxing gloves and big sneakers and taking swipes at the air.

    Terribilis Nirvana: hello
    Sylectra Darwin: hello

    Nostrum Forder: Hi
    Sylectra Darwin: Hi Nos!
    Terribilis Nirvana: [19:20] The system is currently unable to process your request. The request timed out.
    Terribilis Nirvana: ?
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Nos
    Sylectra Darwin: We record our meetings to post on our wiki, do you mind if we record your chats?
    Nostrum Forder: aw
    doug Sosa: mosquitos this evening :)

    Terrabilis suddenly disappeared.

    stevenaia Michinaga: ok, who insulted the boxer
    Nostrum Forder: he died.
    Sylectra Darwin: hehe
    Nostrum Forder: They die so easy these days.
    Paradise Tennant: hiya pila gtsy :)
    Sylectra Darwin: I think he was having technical problems
    Sylectra Darwin: Pila!
    Nostrum Forder: Oh, I can assure you he's having technical problems.
    Sylectra Darwin: howdy
    Pila Mulligan: greetings -- sitting in the pool, nice :)
    Nostrum Forder: In fact, I guarantee it.
    doug Sosa: (hi)
    stevenaia Michinaga: hi Pila
    Paradise Tennant: well what shall we talk about
    Paradise Tennant: the retreat is very close ..
    Sylectra Darwin: why not talk about preparations for that, on a personal level?
    Pila Mulligan: I'm feeling like it is close even as a non-participant :)
    doug Sosa: i am really looking forward to it. I hope it is not ..
    Pila Mulligan: is not ....?
    doug Sosa: couldn't find the word (s)
    doug Sosa: Maybe start positive. I hope it is..
    Pila Mulligan: a concealed revivial?
    doug Sosa: serious, engaging.
    Paradise Tennant: an opening .. to a better understanding :)
    doug Sosa: no not a revival.

    Kiremimi put in a rare appearance (rare for Thursday nights, anyway).

    Pila Mulligan: hi Kiremimi
    Paradise Tennant: hello kiremimi :)
    Sylectra Darwin: Kiremimi, welcome
    doug Sosa: so elegant.
    Kiremimi Tigerpaw: thanks.
    Pila Mulligan: revivial was being ironic -- I can't picture Kira folks under an evangelical tent
    Nostrum Forder: I'm sorry to drop in and drop out so quick, but I have a prior invite for an event tonight, and I need to make an appearance.
    Sylectra Darwin: Anytime that you slow down and take the time to really savor something, you get a lot more out of it. That is what I think this retreat will be to a lot of the participants.
    Nostrum Forder waves.
    Pila Mulligan: bye Nostrum
    Paradise Tennant: good nite nostrum
    doug Sosa: wave
    Paradise Tennant: :)
    Kiremimi Tigerpaw: bye
    Sylectra Darwin: See you Nos
    Pila Mulligan: Paradise has described rl meetings of people from SL, and so has Wol, as being simply a get together of people already friends -- a brief moment of connecting avi and meat and then freindship as usual
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Paradise Tennant: pretty much feels a bit unusual not being a cartoon
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Pila Mulligan: can't fly
    Paradise Tennant: but on some levels you know each other as friends beyond the physical form
    stevenaia Michinaga: isn't that how we all know each other
    Kiremimi Tigerpaw: true
    Paradise Tennant: yes

    Pila was trying to sit in the fountain with us but was having trouble too.

    stevenaia Michinaga: you have to empty the fountain 1st beofre you can sit in it and fill it back up, Pila
    Pila Mulligan: I see -- thanks
    Sylectra Darwin: we're having a fun time sitting in the pool :)

    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Kiremimi Tigerpaw: my nice kimono will get wet
    Pila Mulligan: or cool tub perhaps
    Paradise Tennant: it is a beautiful kimono !
    Kiremimi Tigerpaw: thanks
    Sylectra Darwin: One of the fun parts of being in SL is that you can go in the water and breathe and not get your clothes wet.
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Sylectra Darwin: In fact, you have to BUY wet clothes if you want them wet ;)
    Kiremimi Tigerpaw: haha
    Paradise Tennant: well we were talking about how best to prepare for the retreat .. doug is going to go and is looking forward to it
    Paradise Tennant: geez they sell wet clothes ?
