    The Guardian for this meeting was Eliza Madrigal. The comments are by Eliza Madrigal.

    It should be noted that today is the last 'single digit date' (9-9-9) most of us will see, though I didn't think to bring that up in this simple session where Yakuzza, Arch, Solo (for a moment there), and I talked a little about our colds, the economy, mosquitos, age, and onigokko. :)  

    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Yakuzza
    Eliza Madrigal: I had to turn my camera around to see you :) Glad you typed :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i always use a free radar
    Eliza Madrigal: I have a radar, but it disconnects my AO
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ao ?
    Eliza Madrigal: animation override... so that I walk rather than kind of hop
    Eliza Madrigal: haha
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey arch
    Eliza Madrigal: Hello Arch
    Eliza Madrigal: Thanks, Ya :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i´ts a free radar arch
    Yakuzza Lethecus: something like that is usefull to see who is around
    Yakuzza Lethecus: or not in the field of view right now
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Useful if guardianing and facing one way, certainly
    Eliza Madrigal: So how are you both?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: still have a cold :(
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, me too!! What are you taking for it?
    Eliza Madrigal: For me it seems to come with the school year, and when I was working in the school I lived off of vitamin c packets
    Archmage Atlantis: Thanks Yak
    Eliza Madrigal: The best thing is napping though
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hmm, can´t find a world for ,,schleimlöser"
    Yakuzza Lethecus: otherwise i drink much and noise spray
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s just annoying
    Eliza Madrigal: losenges?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i don´t feel very sick exept my head is closed :P
    Eliza Madrigal: yes it is annoying :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I've been noticing how such a little thing, like not breathing clearly, affects the overall patience level with other things, too...
    Archmage Atlantis: I don't know if the cold sounds better than 30 - 40 mosquito bites or not
    Eliza Madrigal: we have so many factors which make up our experiences
    Eliza Madrigal: Wow Arch...that's a lot
    Archmage Atlantis: That was yesterday
    Yakuzza Lethecus: window open for too long while lights on ?
    Archmage Atlantis: No, I use a walker or a cane and I ventured out to prune a shrub without them
    Archmage Atlantis: Fell and was captive till the EMTs arrived
    Eliza Madrigal: Yikes, Arch, that's terrible!
    Archmage Atlantis: SW Fl right by the Everglades isn't a smart place to do that
    Eliza Madrigal: No it isn't... though I'm not sure there are conventient places to fall and be captive
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hello pedro
    Eliza Madrigal: but yes Florida mosquitoes are vicious
    Eliza Madrigal: Hello pedro :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Welcome to Play as Being. Have you ever been here before?
    Eliza Madrigal: We record our conversations. Do you mind being included?
    Archmage Atlantis: Yep, luckily I have Life Alert, never exepected to be thee "allen and I can't get up" commercial *laughs*
    Archmage Atlantis: Hiya Pedro
    Eliza Madrigal: Good to have safeties and backups in place :)
    pedro Shoteka: hey
    pedro Shoteka: archmage
    Archmage Atlantis: Yak, that is the Mouton, if I remember
    Yakuzza Lethecus: no
    Archmage Atlantis: A long time since I could afford that
    Yakuzza Lethecus: paul got the mouton 45
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i just have green tea :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Ah, how virtuous
    Archmage Atlantis: Dannke
    Archmage Atlantis: Danke
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bitte sehr
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but this one is already a bit colder then mine
    Yakuzza Lethecus: more appropriate for florida weather :)
    Eliza Madrigal: So considerate Ya :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: most of the people say yak by the way :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Actually I'm drinking iced orange pekoe now
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it doesn´t matter to me
    Archmage Atlantis: brb
    Eliza Madrigal: I know... Does it bother you?
    Eliza Madrigal: For me it is a little friendlier sounding... not sure why
    Yakuzza Lethecus: no, it don´t :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Where does the name Yakuzza come from?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, yak is an animal :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: oh, bad movies :)
    Eliza Madrigal grins
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i have that nickname for ages
    Yakuzza Lethecus: japanese mafia is called yakuza
    Eliza Madrigal: wow... that's an interesting bit of trivia
    Eliza Madrigal: Eliza comes from my middle name being 'Beth'... always felt I was missing the Eliza ... hah
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe
    Yakuzza Lethecus: the golden age of britain
    Yakuzza Lethecus: elizabeth
    Eliza Madrigal: Yes :)
    Archmage Atlantis: My goodness, the topic moved
    Eliza Madrigal: We're just chatting Arch, no deep topic :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Just some one serving court papers to a prior resident
    Archmage Atlantis: Wonderful economic times we live in
    Eliza Madrigal: Certainly shiftings going on
    Yakuzza Lethecus: the problem is that i have no clue if things were better at any time in the past
    Eliza Madrigal: :) they were better in some ways worse in others... I'd guess :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I try not to look at the paperwork too often... I think people who watch their investments every day must have a very difficult time
    Archmage Atlantis: The way I see it is yes "tihngs were better, in the US anyway, economically" ...but people they just don't change a lot
    Eliza Madrigal: Arch, but a lot of that was illusion... the prosperity
    Eliza Madrigal: In Florida especially... biggering biggering biggering...

    "Biggering" is an expression that comes from "The Lorax".  :)

    Archmage Atlantis: Oh, this has been coming since the banking system was deregulated and oversight of financial institutions was abandoned
    Archmage Atlantis: The lessons of the great depression were forgotten
    Archmage Atlantis: And the concept of fiscal responsibility was abandoned
    Eliza Madrigal: Well, my thing is... I'd like to see our communities become less wasteful...
    Eliza Madrigal: and less judgemental ... maybe so many having faced difficulties

    Yakuzza Lethecus: very interesting for me is for example the asset-liability mismatch in the states right now
    Archmage Atlantis: Even if the US became a totally green environment, the deforestation of the Amazon and the industrial of China are having bigger environmental effects
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and the dollar became so cheap
    Archmage Atlantis: The US was imitating Germany before the 2 World Wars
    Archmage Atlantis: Still are
    Eliza Madrigal: I like to stay closer to home than that... I'll fully admit that I tried to make the most of the housing market... bought a foreclosed house to fix up... saw the value rise exponentially... intending to sell...
    Eliza Madrigal: then circumstances delayed the sale and ... ack. :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hmm, take over the world as an idea to solve internal problems ? :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, that is the way the "free market" works
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe Yakuzza
    Eliza Madrigal: I don't regret doing it... was a fun adventure...
    Eliza Madrigal: didn't work out quite as I'd hoped but the house is nice and the kids are happy here so...
    Eliza Madrigal: who can complain :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Then you have the right attitude Eliza
    Archmage Atlantis: Right is a bad choice
    Archmage Atlantis: Implies judgement
    Archmage Atlantis: The word I mean
    Eliza Madrigal: yes... maybe...
    Archmage Atlantis: Healthy attitude perhaps is better
    Eliza Madrigal: I've actually enjoyed that people are talking more openly about financial things... comparing and helping one another
    Eliza Madrigal: which doesn't mean I don't want my job back!! :D
    Eliza Madrigal: haha
    Archmage Atlantis: I wouldn't expect a 3rd great awakening, but I do believe suffering has a purpose
    Eliza Madrigal: We can learn from everything... but it is our choice
    Archmage Atlantis: We'll be a better society, less greedy, more accepting
    Archmage Atlantis: hopefully
    Yakuzza Lethecus: by the way, how old are you arch ?
    Archmage Atlantis: 58
    Archmage Atlantis: Seen a few ups and downs
    Eliza Madrigal: You, Yakuzza?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: 27
    Yakuzza Lethecus: eliza, ur already obove the 40 ?
    Eliza Madrigal is newly 39
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, Eliza, fair is fair
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe
    Archmage Atlantis: Ah, good way to ask Yak
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hihi :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Someone told me I confused them very much....
    Eliza Madrigal: couldn't figure out my age
    Eliza Madrigal: Great compliment :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Now I can't play that way any longer
    Eliza Madrigal: hahhha
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i didn´t realize that paul is already 77
    Yakuzza Lethecus: he had is voice on when i first saw him around here
    Eliza Madrigal: Did he figure out his wine glass?
    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, pila gave him the bottle of wine this week or last week :)
    Eliza Madrigal: What's he celebrating?
    Archmage Atlantis: Looked like he had it figured out pretty well yesterday or the the day before
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, i dunno :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: arch do you wear that onigokko thingie ?
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Bill! :D
    Solobill Laville: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: If I would to guess the statistical curve, I would guess at at peak at 27 in SL, with another around late 30s
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey bill
    Archmage Atlantis: onigokko thingie?
    Solobill Laville: Hi Yak, Eliza, Arch (wasn't sure if you were keeping quiet or not) :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Just stepped on the silence to say Hi :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Good to see you. All well?
    Solobill Laville: It was worth it then! THanks!
    Solobill Laville: Yes, thanks
    Archmage Atlantis: I'll have to look at it later Yak, but I already love the Radar
    Yakuzza Lethecus: arch, when you wear it just type onigokko without anything in the chat
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ok
    Archmage Atlantis: Hi, SoloBill
    Eliza Madrigal: Most that I've met in SL are older...but I'm sure that has to do with where I tend to hang out :)
    Archmage Atlantis: What is the function of the onigokko?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: just type onigokko :)
    Solobill Laville: Ha! perhaps Eliza ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Ok, hope I'm still here after
    Archmage Atlantis: onigokko
    Solobill Laville: Onigokko is a litlle tail you wear that allows you to do a crazy fun dance
    Eliza Madrigal: hahaha
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you can stop that with ,,stop"
    Eliza Madrigal: good tea...
    Eliza Madrigal: stop
    Archmage Atlantis: stop
    Archmage Atlantis: Got it
    Yakuzza Lethecus: wol gave that to me when i became guardian :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) yes I saw you registered at the wiki Yakuzza... great
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s kinda tradition to wear it, at least i understood it in that way :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes... never know when you might need to
    Eliza Madrigal: onigokko
    Eliza Madrigal: stop
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Moon uses that sometimes......I just thought it was a mild form of physical loss of control
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah..interesting phrasing
    Archmage Atlantis: *smile*
    Archmage Atlantis: Grew up in a PC world
    Archmage Atlantis: Although it sorta has an animal farm quality to the wording too
    Archmage Atlantis: Being PC I mean
    Archmage Atlantis: Sometimes, now I'm home most of the time, SL is more real to me than RL
    Eliza Madrigal: Sl is pretty real... but sometimes you spend 10 minutes trying to get through a door and remember...
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah
    Eliza Madrigal: I have to leave on time today. My son is calling from school for me to pick up him early.. doesn't feel well.
    Eliza Madrigal: This cold in the house is no fun
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye for now guys :) Have lovely days and evenings
    Archmage Atlantis: Heck, I kept walking off a bridge yesterday....I can't even manage to walk in a straight like.......maybe I should look for an SL walker
    Solobill Laville: Oh, sorry to hear that
    Archmage Atlantis: Take care, feel better Eliza
    Solobill Laville: (re: Eliza's son)
    Solobill Laville: Bye Eliza
