Salon Planning

Planning! 2014 with the Salonistas

Bookworm Hienrichs: Hello, Jed.
Jedburgh Dagger: Hello Book
Jedburgh Dagger: oh well, good meeting πŸ˜€
Bookworm Hienrichs chuckles.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Guten Abend, Damen.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Good day, Baron.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: My apologies, Fraulein Bookworm.
Zantabraxus: Greetings, Book.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Good day, Baronin.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: There were scheduling issues that kept me from proper promotion of today’s Salon.
Zantabraxus: Despite that, how might we make this go more easily for everybody?
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Frau Dagger, did you want to do another Salon this season? As I recall, you ran out of time before you ran out of material.
Jedburgh Dagger: It’s possible if you ask me nicely
Jedburgh Dagger: oops time to go be Admin
Bookworm Hienrichs: Good luck, Jed.
Bookworm Hienrichs smiles wryly.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Good day, Clockwinder.
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: Good afternoon
Zantabraxus: Greetings, Clockwinder
Zantabraxus: Greetings, Lucien, Beryl, Phrynne
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: Herr Baron, Frau Baronin – a pleasure to see you both.
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: Halaa, Phrynne and Beryl!
Beryl Strifeclaw: Hello
Bookworm Hienrichs: To answer your question, Baronin, I think the biggest issue is finding speaking volunteers. Topics there are in plenty, but coaxing people into talking about them… *chuckle*
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Good to see you all. Herr Clockwinder, would you have time for a presentation this year?
Mosseveno Tenk: i have december?
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: If you wish, you may indeed.
Beryl Strifeclaw: I don’t know if Mr. Peterson is still up for doing one?
Zantabraxus nods thoughtfully
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Your choice.
Phrynne: Guten Abend, Herr Baron, Your Majesty. Halaa, Lucien! Hello Ms. Strifeclaw and Ms. Hienrichs and Mr. Tenk
Mosseveno Tenk: i think they wanted to hear more of what boiler elf was going on about. he was just about to get to the monsters.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Welcome, Miss Phyrnne. And hello, Beryl.
Bookworm Hienrichs nods at Tenk.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Monsters are always popular.
Bookworm Hienrichs admits to being distracted by show jumping on TV…
Bookworm Hienrichs grins.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach chuckles
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Magistrate, would anyone from Mondrago like to present something appropriate to your island?
Zantabraxus: Please pardon my distraction; I am consulting with a possible volunteer.
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: We would love to participate.
Mosseveno Tenk: spill on aisle nine
Bookworm Hienrichs: Heh.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Welcome back, Beryl.
Bookworm Hienrichs: And hopefully, you saw that.
Bookworm Hienrichs grins.
Beryl Strifeclaw: Yes
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: So, I’ll cop to being slightly behind the curve… *when* is this presentation slated to occur?
Bookworm Hienrichs: It’s a planning session, so it’s started already.
Bookworm Hienrichs: More or less.
Bookworm Hienrichs grins.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Heh, he means for a Salon proper. You or your speaker would have a choice of months.
Stereo Nacht quietly salutes around, not drawing too much attention for being that late
Bookworm Hienrichs: Ahh.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Hello, Stereo, Tepic.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Barring December, of course. Hallo, Fraulein Stereo. We are all late today.
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: Halaa, Captain!
Beryl Strifeclaw: Hello
Tepic Harlequin: watcha all!
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: Good afternoon, Tepic!
Zantabraxus: Greetings, Tepic *smiles*
Zantabraxus: Greetings, Captain Stereo
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: One of the Urchins would be a good speaker on the history of petty crime in the city, ja?
Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
Zantabraxus: Wulfride Blitzen says she can do a presentation on Victorian inventors in January or February.
Beryl Strifeclaw: Tepic,
Stereo Nacht: Good day Madam. I see you stayed up late last night, and didn’t get to change out of your (great) evening outfit! πŸ˜‰
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach eyes Tepic
Beryl Strifeclaw coughs
Bookworm Hienrichs: Ahh, that would be interesting!
Zantabraxus grins at Stereo
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Excellent. Danke, my Baronin.
Tepic Harlequin: petty crime? i’ve stolen the City anyhow, it’s mine!
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Then you can speak well on the subject.
Beryl Strifeclaw hears ‘mine’ in the seaguls from finding nemo voice
Stereo Nacht: Crimes and punishment, perhaps? πŸ˜‰
Zantabraxus chuckles
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: Mondrago would love to present a piece on the influence of Oriental (Turkish) and Far Eastern ideas and design upon Western European culture
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Ah, that is Commodore Dagger’s purview, I suspect.
Tepic Harlequin: possibly, there’s lots missunderstood from then
Jimmy Branagh: ‘ello awl:)
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Sir Lucien, that would be excellent. A choice as to month?
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: Ha there, Jimmy!
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Hallo, Herr Jimmy.
Stereo Nacht: Good day Mr. Branagh.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Hoy, Jimmy!
Jimmy Branagh waves
Zantabraxus: Good day, Jimmy *smiles*
Bookworm Hienrichs: Well, well. Bruce Springsteen’s daughter Jessica won the show jumping competition I’ve been watching.
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: We would prefer October (coinciding with our birthday) or November, I think
Stereo Nacht: And good day Mr. Clockwinder!
Tepic Harlequin: so when are the talks needed for?
Stereo Nacht: Depends on which month you want to present, I believe…
Zantabraxus: The third Sunday of the month, at 2 pm.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: About 45 minutes of speaking, with or without displays – your choice – and then time for questions. A gift for the audience is always appreciated.
Mosseveno Tenk: right. how many we got so far?
Bookworm Hienrichs: If I’m following things correctly, December’s the month that’s definitely taken. We have one for October or November, and one for January or February.
Tepic Harlequin: fraid i’m a bit rl busy till after Christmas
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: After is fine.
Tepic Harlequin: could possibly do Feb?
Jimmy Branagh: I’ll thake April, if possible
Jimmy Branagh: take*
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: October would be good, as we can celebrate two anniversaries at once. Mondrago and the Salon itself.
Zantabraxus: Tepic, I think February is fine. Let me check.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: What topic for April, Herr Jimmy?
Jimmy Branagh: Ummmm
Jimmy Branagh: Errrrr
Jimmy Branagh: Hmmmmmm
Stereo Nacht: Yes! How do you intend to outdo yourself? πŸ˜‰
Bookworm Hienrichs laughs.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach grins
Tepic Harlequin: i got Crime an Punishment!
Jimmy Branagh: “FREAKS: A Study of Carnival Tent Culture in the late 19th Century”
Jimmy Branagh: πŸ™‚
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: October it is, then for MOndrago and The Influence of Oriental and Far Eastern Culture on Western Europe in the Ninteenth Century
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Oho.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: For those in the room who will be speaking, I should need for our posters and announcements a one-word title, and a notice-sized summary of your talk.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: The sooner the better.
Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: A one-word title?
Stereo Nacht: Heh. I could offer “Steampunk poetry writing”, but it would be quite short: find an idea, get a good rhyme help, bend your idea to the best rhyme… Errr… X-D (Not really. hard to speak of such things.)
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano thinks
Zantabraxus: All right. Wulfride says January is fine for her presentation. Tepic, you said you might wish for February?
Bookworm Hienrichs chuckles at Stereo.
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: I should be able to do something with that.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Danke for checking on that, Zanta.
Zantabraxus smiles at her husband
Tepic Harlequin: yes please!
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: I have November, March and May open, although I believe I have a speaker for November.
Mosseveno Tenk: Just ‘christmas’ for me. i’m easy. but not cheap.
Bookworm Hienrichs coughs.
Jimmy Branagh: hehe
Bookworm Hienrichs: Good day, Brother Lapis.
Zantabraxus: Splendid. Thank you Tepic.
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: I think we’ll be going with “Orentalism” as that’s the actual name of the cultural movement in Victorian England.
Bookworm Hienrichs: I could take March, I hope.
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: I’ll get an elevator pitch soon
Brother Lapis: I could take March.
Bookworm Hienrichs laughs.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Or I could take May.
Zantabraxus chuckles
Brother Lapis smiles at Bookworm.
Brother Lapis: But I will gladly step aside for the Lady.
Bookworm Hienrichs: What would be your topic, Brother Lapis?
Brother Lapis: Mnemonics.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Interesting!
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Intriguing.
Jimmy Branagh: Wow
Tepic Harlequin: don’t forget though…..
Zantabraxus looks interested
Stereo Nacht: Better not forget what you want to talk about! πŸ˜‰
Mosseveno Tenk watches Lapis shoot himself in the foot.
Jimmy Branagh: hehe Tep
Bookworm Hienrichs: I’d be a little hesitant taking May, though, as there’s the possibility of a vacation then. That’s very tenttaive, though.
Bookworm Hienrichs: *tentative.
Brother Lapis: I know I would not be able to take May.
Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach grins at Tepic
Bookworm Hienrichs: Well, put me down for May, for now, and I’ll be sure to let you know, Baron, if it won’t work out after all.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Danke.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: But what would you be doing, Fraulein?
Bookworm Hienrichs: It’s also predicated on my being able to find enough material on the subject. *grin*
Stereo Nacht: At worse, you could pass your notes to a replacement speaker?
Bookworm Hienrichs: Calling. The art of visiting one’s friends and neighbors.
Brother Lapis: Indeed a lost art!
Tepic Harlequin: oohhh!
Zantabraxus: Good choice.
Jimmy Branagh: Yeh it is
Stereo Nacht: Goodness! The proper dress alone would take up half the time!:-D
Beryl Strifeclaw: That’s got enough for 3 hours Book
Beryl Strifeclaw: I know, I sat through a class on it
Beryl Strifeclaw: =p
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: I’m quite a can of calling, myself.
Bookworm Hienrichs: I was always intruiged by the chapter in ‘Little Women’ when Amy and Jo go calling.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Very nice.
Bookworm Hienrichs looks at Beryl. “I may well call on you for assistance.”
Bookworm Hienrichs grins.
Beryl Strifeclaw: Think I still have my notes
Tepic Harlequin: time to head off….
Tepic Harlequin: night all!
Bookworm Hienrichs: Good night, Tepic!
Stereo Nacht: Good bye Mr. Harlequin!
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: So soon. Do let me know about your title, bitte.
Jimmy Branagh: Night Tepic!
Mosseveno Tenk: night tepic
Tepic Harlequin: sure Baron!
Beryl Strifeclaw: Night Tep
Bookworm Hienrichs: You said you have a possibility for November, Baron?
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: This took hardly any time at all to fill the calendar.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Indeed!
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Ja, the Duchess of Trikassi in Winterfell and I were discussing a Salon.
Zantabraxus: Duchess Liz? Wonderful.
Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: She is not available right at the moment to confirm, but I have left a message.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Admiral Beaumont had suggested it, and we can always use viewpoints from other lands.
Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: I am also trying to get someone from Antiquity here, discussing ships.
Stereo Nacht: Oh! That would be nice!
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: That does sound like it would be a grand thing
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Given how mad they are for sailing….
Bookworm Hienrichs chuckles.
Zantabraxus grins
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano: I am excited about this! I have been meaning to rub a few more elbows in the Steamlands and this sounds like the perfect venue.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Sehr gut.
Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
Jimmy Branagh: πŸ™‚
Zantabraxus smiles at Lucien
Bookworm Hienrichs smiles at Jed and Kimika.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Welcome back, Frau Commodore.
Jimmy Branagh waves to the Daggers
Zantabraxus: Oh dear. Trouble has arrived.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Frau Dagger, good to see you.
Kimika Yingt: Hello
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach chuckles
Zantabraxus is teasing
Bookworm Hienrichs: Sim crossing, Jed?
Stereo Nacht: Good day Commodore Dagger!
Bookworm Hienrichs grins.
Jedburgh Dagger: Come lagwalk with me
Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
Zantabraxus chuckles
Bookworm Hienrichs: You’re probably off the hook this year, Jed. If all goes well, all months have been spoken for.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach chuckles
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: She will leave us on tenterhooks.
Stereo Nacht: And without my help! X-D
Bookworm Hienrichs chuckles.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: I shall fill these in on the planning calendar and copy the speakers for whom I have aether-addresses.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: I may have to chase down a few.
Zantabraxus: Release the hounds.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Heh.
Brother Lapis: You could always extend the season for the Commodore.
Stereo Nacht hikes her skirt and readies herself for the run
Zantabraxus winks at Stereo
Jimmy Branagh: Or have a two-hour “special” Salon for her
Bookworm Hienrichs laughs.
Stereo Nacht: Ah, no, I am not on the target list.
Jimmy Branagh: On guns πŸ™‚
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: That is a possibility, if she is willing.
Jedburgh Dagger: You’re always on the list Stereo
Stereo Nacht drops her skirt and straighten her spine.
Stereo Nacht: On which list, Commodore? It’s nice to know who is chasing me, and what for! πŸ˜‰
Jedburgh Dagger: THE list.
Stereo Nacht: Ah. Of course. Well, I have been managing so far.
Zantabraxus: I like the idea of a 2 hour Salon just for Jed’s benefit.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Beware the List.
Jedburgh Dagger: Only because you’re not at the top
Stereo Nacht: And I make sure it stays so! πŸ˜‰
Jedburgh Dagger: Depends on what you want, and when
Mosseveno Tenk: i gotta list…
Stereo Nacht: And none of them’ll be missed?
Mosseveno Tenk leans to the right
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach groans politely
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: It is those mismatched boots, Herr Clockwinder.
Jedburgh Dagger: We tried to fix his ballast a few years ago for naught
Lucien Marenwolf-Brentano was looking away and likewise groans as he is enlightened
Mosseveno Tenk: only one of my boots needed replacing. waste not, want not.
Stereo Nacht: I assume it’s better when you have to stretch away on a ladder to wind up all those clocks…
Jedburgh Dagger: I thought you gave one to Kaylee
Zantabraxus feels much the same way about shoes
Jimmy Branagh: RL calling. Gotta run.
Jimmy Branagh: Bye awl!
Jimmy Branagh waves
Stereo Nacht: Good day Mr. Branagh!
Jedburgh Dagger: seeya Jim
Zantabraxus: Farewell, Jimmy. Thank you for coming.
Bookworm Hienrichs: Bye, Jimmy!
Kimika Yingt: Bye Jimmy
Jimmy Branagh: ‘ave a good evening awl:)
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Gute Nacht, Herr Jimmy.
Bookworm Hienrichs: I may as well go, too. I’m freezing up like mad.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: All right, I believe we have enough to be going on with. I thank you all for your efficient attendance.
Beryl Strifeclaw: Bye Book
Phrynne: and I am being called back to Oxbridge.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: This is a promising season.
Phrynne: good evening, everyone
Stereo Nacht: Good bye Ms. Hienrichs!
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Gute Nacht, Fraulein Phrynne.
Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Danke, Fraulein Bookworm.
Bookworm Hienrichs waves.
