At morning meeting we noticed and were introduced to new homesteaders (Sarah and Elizabeth), one new commissioner (Jordan) and a few peeps. We also briefly spoke about currency. Homesteaders were given all day to consider what might work well for money.
Will introduced us to Tom, not Thom. Saul says, "Uh oh, he has a mohawk, he might be one of those punk rockers!" Tom has four cows and two pigs, it is unclear whether he keeps them as companions or meat. Perhaps both. Tom is right handed and his favorite food is bacon... so he probably, might be raising the pigs for meat. There is only one "O" in Tom's name, although everyone has trouble pronouncing it. "I'm new to this world, I don't have any hobbies yet."
After morning meeting the homesteaders split into three groups and got a good, solid look at the trading post materials and the supplies down at the sheep shed. It is important to keep in mind what is available when designing your peep's home. The remaining minutes of our morning were spent designing houses and creating blueprints. After lunch and a nice swim we got right back to it. Some homesteaders have moved onto cardboard models!
Corvee and town meeting (again!): The agenda today was to choose a type of currency, have two more peep introductions and ???
We met Sarah's peep, Victoria, first. Victoria is 21 years old and has a golden retriever as a pet. Her dog eats dog food. Victoria is from London and enjoys sewing in her spare time. She also enjoys horseback riding.
Announcements at meeting:
- Jacques has lost one of his boots
- Tarzan has lost his leaf!
squirrels, acorns, fingers & toes, Rolph's friends, tiny green clay, beads, paper with symbols, sunflower seeds, actual pizzas, tiny pies, leaves (or Tarzan's underpants), three leaf clovers, banana peels, lily pads, blades of grass, leeches & bass, Tarzan, wheel chairs, frogs
We narrowed the list considerably when we realized how not unique many of these items are, and how easy it would be to counterfeit. We narrowed the discussion to tiny pies, three leaf clovers, and paper with symbols. Paper with symbols won with a majority vote. This discussion was tabled and we moved on to one last peep intro, which I did not manage to get a picture of. If you look up at Sarah's picture and envision a peep with dark hair and dressed very differently you can almost imagine what Elizabeth and her peep look like. Elizabeth introduced us to Hermione. Hermione is 12 years old and has a pet owl. Her favorite color is blue, she is from London and has no siblings.
