    Agatha Macbeth: Plenty of wings on today then?
    Fael Illyar: wings?
    Fael Illyar: ah, yes :)
    Fael Illyar: although the smaller ones are purel decorative :P
    Agatha Macbeth: Those things on your back ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth grins
    Agatha Macbeth: Makes for a nice effect
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Fael Illyar: so, what's up today?
    Agatha Macbeth: Not a lot, so far
    Fael Illyar: I just returned from shop a while ago.
    Fael Illyar: eating a package of microwave chop suey.
    Agatha Macbeth: Your shop?
    Fael Illyar: no RL shop
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Fael Illyar: buying foodstuff
    Agatha Macbeth: What's the weather like there?
    Fael Illyar: was windy, wet, snowy when I left
    Fael Illyar: but now it's only windy and wet
    Agatha Macbeth: Quite nice here at the moment
    Agatha Macbeth: I saw my first crocus this week :)
    Fael Illyar: oh, crocus?
    Fael Illyar googles.
    Agatha Macbeth: The flower
    Agatha Macbeth: It means spring is coming :)
    Fael Illyar: ah, nice looking flower :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, they're lovely
    Agatha Macbeth: I like the orange ones best
    Fael Illyar: no pictures of orange ones on wikipedia...
    Agatha Macbeth: Mwah! No fair
    Fael Illyar: mayhaps this one? http://www.crocusbank.org/Crocus%20%...Bowles%27,.jpg
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, that's more like it :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Beautiful
    Fael Illyar: meep! :)
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Agatha Macbeth: Meep Meep ;P :p:P :p :P
    Yakuzza Lethecus: do you have a road runner avatar ?
    Fael Illyar: nope :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Meep Meep ;P :p:P :p :P
    Agatha Macbeth: I forgot you can do it via the KB
    Fael Illyar: I don't use the gesture much though... I usually don't mean it to sound quite like that :)
    Agatha Macbeth: I thought that was how it's supposed to sound?
    Fael Illyar: I didn't start meeping because of road runner :P
    Fael Illyar: I only realized it's road runner's sound when Moon made that gesture.
    Fael Illyar: well, the written form anyway
    Agatha Macbeth: Why did you do it then?
    Agatha Macbeth: At first
    Fael Illyar: I tend to use non-verbal, although, oral communication some in RL :)
    Fael Illyar: so, it's one form of that.
    Agatha Macbeth: Sounds but not words?
    Fael Illyar: yes
    Fael Illyar: impossible to convey with letters the exact sounds, really :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Fael Illyar: I'm kind of surprised people are able to read me pretty well with meep though :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Onomatopea?
    Agatha Macbeth: Is that how it's spelt?......
    Fael Illyar: Onomatopoeia
    Fael Illyar: Greek word apparently :)
    Agatha Macbeth: onomatopoeia
    Agatha Macbeth: Should be
    Fael Illyar: oink oink :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Yep :)
    Fael Illyar: color matches anyway :)
    Agatha Macbeth: It's often difficult to approximate sounds with letters :(
    Fael Illyar: yep :)
    Fael Illyar: letters are quite limited in that
    Fael Illyar: best would be if you learned to "hear" through seeing a printed waveform :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes. It makes printed communication somewhat limited in that respect
    Yakuzza Lethecus: so we should all learn the ipa alphabet ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Fael Illyar: ipa?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: international phonetic alphabet
    Fael Illyar: no should but maybe it would be interesting :)
    Agatha Macbeth: The same limitations would apply tho, Yaku
    Yakuzza Lethecus: sure but it describes sounds better then our common languages
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh yes, I agree
    Agatha Macbeth: It gives you the idea of how the sound should be in a different language
    Fael Illyar: yep, better but still limited :)
    Agatha Macbeth: There is no real way to convey many sounds on the printed page, unfortunately
    Fael Illyar: sometimes people get fed up with me using non-verbal sounds and say something about it :)
    Fael Illyar: usually something like "you know words, use them"
    Agatha Macbeth: What sort of sounds do you use?
    Fael Illyar: I wonder how to describe it... I guess one of the most common could be approximated as mmm
    Fael Illyar: with different changes in tone and pitch depending on what I want to express
    Agatha Macbeth: When agreeing with someone?
    Agatha Macbeth: Chinese dialects use tone a lot....
    Fael Illyar: Yes, agreeing and disagreeing are common ways to use that
    Agatha Macbeth: And as a question: mmm?
    Fael Illyar: yep
    Agatha Macbeth: Don't seem to be many people coming at this time just lately
    Agatha Macbeth: I guess it's a little early for most people in the States and Canada
    Fael Illyar: It used to be pretty popular time :)
    Fael Illyar: but seems the enthusiasm for waking up early for this meeting has faded
    Fael Illyar: later afternoon/early evening for me
    Agatha Macbeth: Me too
