    stevenaia Michinaga: hi Storm
    Storm Nordwind: Hi!
    stevenaia Michinaga: how is the re-construction going?
    stevenaia Michinaga: you have been very busy
    Storm Nordwind: It's all finished
    Storm Nordwind: Everything is rebuilt, moved or deleted
    stevenaia Michinaga: congratulations
    Storm Nordwind: And all land has been sold
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Storm Nordwind: We're now saving $2400 a year
    stevenaia Michinaga: lindens or real money


    Storm Nordwind: That would be L$624,000 a year! :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I see
    stevenaia Michinaga: what has become of all the images from the first (and second) Play as art projects? will they end up on the wiki?
    Storm Nordwind: That's a good point. I don't know. It's up to Bleu. On the other hand, only a small proportion of the exhibitors gave me their textures, so they'd have to add them themselves to a wiki
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods, it's an interesting aspect of the group
    stevenaia Michinaga: art expression
    Storm Nordwind: yes. we've just started the new exhibition
    Storm Nordwind: three exhibits already
    stevenaia Michinaga: I read
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have not visited the "photo booth" yet
    Storm Nordwind: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have an idea but not a clue how to make a skin to my liking to execute the idea
    stevenaia Michinaga: Bleu possesses such skills
    Storm Nordwind: Well perhaps you have already started. Or you can buy one and modify it perhaps?
    Storm Nordwind: By the way, what is the correct and appropriate short form of "stevenaia" under the circumstances of your current appearance?
    stevenaia Michinaga: steve will always work
    Storm Nordwind: Great :) I'm so lazy - that appeals to me!
    stevenaia Michinaga: it's all the same under the avatar's skin
    Storm Nordwind: Perhaps there's a paradox and you would dress up rather than dropping?
    stevenaia Michinaga: there is no motive to change anything other than outward appearance, what's dropped is inside
    Storm Nordwind nods
    stevenaia Michinaga: people seem to react differently to the "package"
    Storm Nordwind: Of course!
    stevenaia Michinaga: like frosting on a cake, everyone likes it
    Storm Nordwind: I always found it an interesting social experiment
    Storm Nordwind: And often a lot of fun!
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods, initially in SL I was a woman chosen purposefully when I got here
    stevenaia Michinaga: each transformation after that to a man and back was through forces other then my own
    Storm Nordwind: Oh!
    stevenaia Michinaga: the first change to the blond hunk was actually influenced by the person who introduced me to Pema, she is no longer on SL
    Storm Nordwind nods
    stevenaia Michinaga: then the change back was my viewer Ruthed me, and I was happy to be back so I fixed her up, went shopping and here I am
    Storm Nordwind: Haha! It's intriguing that many men try being and stay as women in SL, or at least have a permanent female avatar in their 'armory'. But I've met few RL women who have changed in a lasting way to SL men.


    stevenaia Michinaga: My initial choice was that I didn't want to be identified with the many ill manored men who populate SL, so the persona of a male lesbian fit me easily and can be very disarming to both men and woman, even my spouse seem to think it an appropriate incarnation of me
    Storm Nordwind: Yes I can understand all of that, and greatly sympathize!
    Storm Nordwind: This avatar never had another form other than this one, but it was the last of a long line of female or TG avatars
    Storm Nordwind: by different names
    stevenaia Michinaga: awww, I would have never known
    stevenaia Michinaga: most interesting
    stevenaia Michinaga: Wol asked me how I liked the change, and I had to explain this was a change back :)
    Storm Nordwind: yes!
    stevenaia Michinaga: I think woman are too smart to need to be male... grins
    Storm Nordwind: I agree. And why would you want your camera to follow a much less attractive firm anyway? ;-)
    Storm Nordwind: *form
    stevenaia Michinaga: very true
    stevenaia Michinaga: someone recently told me I reminded them of Meg Ryan, who is one of my RL favorite actresses
    stevenaia Michinaga: someone in SL
    Storm Nordwind: I can see a slight resemblance yes
    Storm Nordwind: Just lay off the sound effects. OK? ;)
    stevenaia Michinaga: can't say that ever happened here to me before
    stevenaia Michinaga: sound affects? Meg has sound effects?
    Storm Nordwind: Er.. yes.. she has quite famous sound effects in one movie
    stevenaia Michinaga: awww, right, got it
    stevenaia Michinaga: pre-tom hanks
    stevenaia Michinaga: Billy Crystal
    Storm Nordwind: oh I wouldn't know - I'm no film buff
    stevenaia Michinaga: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4776794684162861091#
    Storm Nordwind: Are you happy with people knowing your RL gender, or is there a deliberate act of personation with strangers?

    I misread the question and answered incorrectly, I never hide my RL gender and my profile is an attempt to allow anyone who cares to, to look and see my RL gender. Or they can ask.

    stevenaia Michinaga: I am very happy w/ RL
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have been accepted as one of the "Girls" so even my RL avatar can be disarming as well
    Storm Nordwind: accepted by whom?
    stevenaia Michinaga: all my spouse GF's
    Storm Nordwind: Ah I see!
    stevenaia Michinaga: seems sleep overs are just not the same w/o me
    Storm Nordwind nods
    Storm Nordwind: What liberating times we live in, I'm pleased to say
    stevenaia Michinaga: Smiles, times of comfort


    Storm Nordwind: Well I shall bid you good evening. I do hope you get an exhibit together - I would enjoy seeing it and thinking about it
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, hope to put something together
    stevenaia Michinaga: thanks for joining me
    Storm Nordwind: My great pleasure :)
