Menelvagor Valar: been quite a while, aye
Menelvagor Valar: checking LotRO for some people :-D
Menelvagor Valar: no one there unfortunately.
ArPharazonV: Aiya Phar!
ArPharazonV: Eonwe will be at work during today's meeting.
ArPharazonV: My own attendance is in question, as I'm not sure what time or for how long my guest will be here. He's Fangorn's oldest brother who hasn't been to our house in about 20 years, as we tend to meet up elsewhere. He's in town for a Cytology seminar and is dropping by our house afterwards this afternoon. Fangorn's 56th birthday is tomorrow, but we'll be on the road all day then so we're having it today.
ArPharazonV: Namarie,Varda
Menelvagor Valar: hmmm too bad.

AriehnV: aye u got a good memory Phara :-)
Menelvagor Valar: From LotRO?
karakedi25: yes
Menelvagor Valar: well, I guess I remembered that much ^^
karakedi25: good memory indeed
Menelvagor Valar: well, I noticed a news item you joined in LotRO months ago, prolly close to half a year ago.
karakedi25: actually only about a month or so
Menelvagor Valar: really?
Menelvagor Valar: wow, I've been more out of touch than I thought.
AriehnV: we missed you Menel :-)
FladrifV: you almost went treeish menel
Menelvagor Valar: haha.
Menelvagor Valar: My Druid has only once been a tree, and that was not a big success :P
FladrifV: nailed to the ground at once?
Menelvagor Valar: I prefer being a bear.
Menelvagor Valar: but even those tend to get sleepy at times :-D
ArPharazonV: hibernation?
Menelvagor Valar: yes :-)
ArPharazonV: well it's about time you woke up then, it's nearly summer!
Menelvagor Valar: And Indis, I just got LotRO on my gaming comp, and will be there a bit more in the coming time, so I hope we can meet up in there at one point?
Menelvagor Valar: actually, it's about time I got into hibernation again.
karakedi25: that would be good :-)
Menelvagor Valar: My home more resembles an oven already.
AriehnV: ah it was good to see u again Menel :-) hope u ll pop in again soon :-)_
Menelvagor Valar: I will... hopefully.
AriehnV: any idea where Eonwe and Varda are?
AriehnV has left the room.
karakedi25: none at all, and I can't stay too much longer
Menelvagor Valar: Eonwe is off at wp
Menelvagor Valar: work, and Varda is having a visitor over at her place.
FladrifV: ok so menel chairs today
ArPharazonV: yep
Menelvagor Valar: Ickles!
Menelvagor Valar: I've been so out of touch, I wouldn't have the slightest clue what is going on.
FladrifV: or shall we chair arphar :-)
FladrifV: (11:51:06 PM) AriehnV: aiya there closed wrong window but cant lead meeting am in HALLS of stone
ArPharazonV: ahh, halls of stone, good times..
ArPharazonV: anyway, as far as last week is concerned, I have no more idea about what's going on than Menel
ArPharazonV: so that's no excuse

ArPharazonV: 't is an outrage! something must be done!
ArPharazonV: *gets pitchfork*
Menelvagor Valar: *calms Pharzie down* Varda has a lot of work to do, both voluntary and involuntary (aka job), we can't blame her for every little mistake :-)
Menelvagor Valar: Anyways, any more web news?
ArPharazonV: hmm, I'll let her off the hook this time
Menelvagor Valar: Aww... come on Phar, she let you off pretty easy with your imprisonment in the Forgotten Caves.
ArPharazonV: hmhm, at least she didn't kill me....
Menelvagor Valar: Exactly the point.
Menelvagor Valar: But back to the matters at hand :-)

Menelvagor Valar: That she is.
ArPharazonV: imagine my surprise when I was killed and released at Ulduar and saw a wisp with a familiar name travelling not far ahead of me!
Menelvagor Valar: (I was zoomed out too far to notice any names) :-D
ArPharazonV: you were just not paying any attention, admit it!
