I have finally been able to visit the sisters at the Embassy of the Feminine Empire of Aristasia. I had met them when some of the 'pettes' had been visiting Roma, during the big anniversary festivals and the opening of Transtiberum, although I had heard of Aristasia beforehand, and had spoken briefly to... their style of address is 'Miss Sushuri Madonna', title then given name then family name, unlike the Romans I am around so often.

Several of the sisters are having problems with their aetheric engines, so I volunteered to take some pictures before I had to let Klaus reacquire our spirit (grumble):

Our Princess seems to be well-taken with our sisters from distant lands; one of my other Themiscyran sisters was even attending the party in a reincarnate form! Such a pleasant surprise! Unfortunately, I did not get a picture of her in her party clothes.

I made a suggestion to Miss Cecile, one of the elder-sisters in this realm, I believe; since we are of like minds, and Princess Diana and Kara/Karrie both have fallen in with the White Roses most happily, we might consider sharing the expense of a hestia - what the Aristasians call, most sensibly, a homeland of their own. Our own. We could split an island stylistically, but not geographically, and have plenty of room for all of us... and make it financially easier to become a reality in this Second Life. I must send a messenger to Diana with the thought.

If only 17 adelphe could manage... what, L$26,500 each...? Yes, it's a lot, but it's a goal to set....

I have a need to find a source of "togas" by Friday, if you can advise me it would be a good thing. Why my sisters of the JLU decided that a "toga party" for Christmas was a good thing remains a Mystery, even to me.

The Princess has advised me that she is having connection trouble, so if the aether seems murky whilst attempting communication, that may be why.

I tend to earn my Linden$ the old fashioned way, I buy them... if you wind up short of sisters to share the land expenses, I would be happy to throw my fortunes in with you.

Togas are easy! There's some free ones in the Customs House in Roma - it's a telehub, so you can't miss it; and in the market area, there's a shop called 'B Roman' which has a whole selection of rather nicer clothes. Once you leave the Customs House and climb the ramp, turn right to walk along the dock. Just before the archways into Suburba, turn left - there's two floors of shops in a building with an atrium. B Roman is on the right, ground floor, towards the back.

I got my peplos from another merchant somewhere else entirely, I'd have to go looking for her (him?) again. One of my shorter outfits isn't available at all any more, which is a shame; the other is from a mainland-type merchant, who was selling it as a costume.

Oh, I forgot to address the other part! I was hoping we could each and all throw in together, both native and adopted Themiscyrans. It's nothing that will happen soon, though, unless great luck strikes one of us.

I wish there was some way we could deposit our money into a safe place so we could collect it gradually and not have to worry about any one of us dealing with temptation. L$26,500 at once is a big number; L$2,650 a month is much more workable for most, I imagine.

I would need to recover my finances, but the total is not an entirely unattainable one. *hides the Steelhead donations with some creative bookkeeping*
