    The Guardian for this meeting was Riddle Sideways. The comments are by Riddle Sideways.

    Like when we play the world like the story of the 3 bears.  Not too much and not too little, but just right.

    We each have that comfort zone. We like it there. We try to stay there.
    However, my comfort zone is not the same as your warm and cozy spot.  Definately, not like that weirdo over there.  Nope, nobody seems to like it just like me.

    Riddle Sideways: Good Morning, Listening Master
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey riddle
    Riddle Sideways: good morning, Yaku

    Riddle Sideways: yes, those headaches are what I was just thinking about
    Riddle Sideways: once a year (this next weekend) I fast from coffee one day
    Riddle Sideways: by noon, Oy I have such a headache
    Riddle Sideways: by 3pm I am close to sick to stomach

    Yakuzza Lethecus: coffee, tea ? special kinds of tea ?
    sophia Placebo: both are
    sophia Placebo: both are served at the same time
    sophia Placebo: both can be taken at the same session
    Riddle Sideways: is Starbucks in Saudi Arabia?
    sophia Placebo: our cups are small, like doll houses cups , the coffee one is even smaller than the tea
    sophia Placebo: yes riddle
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Riddle Sideways: sorry, I thought maybe starbucks had not gone there
    Riddle Sideways: wonder where they are not
    Gaya Ethaniel: Afghanistan?
    Riddle Sideways: I like those little cups

    Gaya Ethaniel: wb Yakuzza :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah :)
    Riddle Sideways: TY, Gaya
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ty :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: yw :)
    Riddle Sideways: ok, think I might have had enough now
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    ..New subject.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: since everyone here already had a slot in play as being, what do you think about the silence sometimes, when everyone is there but there is no topic ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: is that supposed to be a good thing, or also percieved as terrible sometimes in ur eyes ?
    Gaya Ethaniel thinks ... normal ...?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yeah, but for example when i bring someone new into the group and it´s silence
    Riddle Sideways: yes, normal
    Gaya Ethaniel: I think I have gotten used to sit in silence with other people more and more over the years.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: obviously i try to explain that even before i introduce someone and explain that theme sessions are to be prefered or pema or stims session because it´s just more crowed
    Yakuzza Lethecus: crowded
    Riddle Sideways: like RL, you bring a new person to a great circle... that turns out to be not so great that time
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah I see ... it is true PaB silence isn't really typical in SL maybe.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: usually i am fine with the silence because i also leave the pc even alone when i am on pab
    Yakuzza Lethecus: *sometimes*
    Yakuzza Lethecus: or fall asleep or what ever :)
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles ...
    Riddle Sideways: very tempted to insert joke here
    Riddle Sideways: but, you are right
    Riddle Sideways: we can be rude and walk away, take phone call or fall asleep during these sessions
    Riddle Sideways: maybe you think we are paying attention
    Gaya Ethaniel: I think people pay attention most of the time?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s all logged on the chat and even when it was 2-3 minutes ago it is usually still fine
    Riddle Sideways: again, too little chat at chat session makes it not a chat session
    Riddle Sideways: too much and your thoughts get lost

    Gaya Ethaniel: @.@ reads again ... too little chat at chat session makes it not a chat session ...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: right, the perfect blalance, silence is not even a bad thing sure
    Yakuzza Lethecus: sometimes i just percieve it in a negative way
    Riddle Sideways: sorry, can't fix that sentence, Gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel nods ... sometimes I find chat difficult to follow because of large amount of information at speed.
    Riddle Sideways: maybe we should keep the timestamping on the dialog lines
    Gaya Ethaniel thinks Riddle talks like a Hobbit sometimes :)
    Riddle Sideways: observent reader could see 2-3 min go by
    sophia Placebo: :))
    Riddle Sideways: yes, grammar is what you see I need
    Riddle Sideways: Yoda

    Gaya Ethaniel: No :) I was reminded of Bilbo's saying ... "I like half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less then half as well as you deserve"
    Riddle Sideways: giggles
    Gaya Ethaniel: I wonder if people would pay attention to timestamp information though ... would you think so?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: sometimes
    Riddle Sideways: not sure, maybe
    Riddle Sideways: might be too much for some :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: phone brb
    Riddle Sideways: each person's feedback looop should tell them when _____ is too much or too little
    Riddle Sideways: so they can adjust
    Riddle Sideways: big trouble comes when somebody else tells you what yourlimits are
    Riddle Sideways: imagine if a government told you how much coffee you must drink
    Riddle Sideways: but no more then that
    Gaya Ethaniel quietly sits down again.
    Riddle Sideways: my current peeve is that the health dept has ditated that I should not hug and kiss
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but they can make it forbidden when it seems to become threatening the population
    Gaya Ethaniel: No hug or kiss? Why not?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: what ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you got the flu ?
    sophia Placebo: h1n1 i guess
    Riddle Sideways: some H1N1 thing
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ...
    Gaya Ethaniel: Funny ... people still peck on cheeks here no problem.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i keep thinking about the isssue how treatening h1n1 really is
    Riddle Sideways: too much regulation in case there is not enough regulation
    Yakuzza Lethecus: sometimes the thought comes to mind that h1n1 is a reason for not make financial cuttings in the pharma industrie during the crisis
    Riddle Sideways: please keep chatting, I will post log, but must go take people to airport
    Was really starting to see balences of too much and too little everywhere, when I got called to drive to the airport.
    As I comment this, I am packing my bags for a quick trip to NYC then back. So, not very good comments this time.
