TEA TIME (4-5PM PST / 00:00 GMT) .... the half-a** Saturday edition

TODAY'S SING-ALONG LINK: Nude -Platoon Drill Sargeant's Review of Season 6 [PG-13]
           http://www.buffy.com/bronze_posts.jsp?tid=48604

It's tea time in Santa Monica,
    and, "bloody hell," it's Saturday, so no serious conversation alllowed! <smile>


TODAY'S TOPIC: After you sing the above post out loud and embarrass yourself,
we must decide what to do about the Daylight Savings Time change.

Gile's clock jumps back an hour a week from now
... but California's jumps back the week after that ... and this is
just so terribly confusing. <smile>

Normally when we have Tea Time here in L.A., it is Midnight in London,
(00:00 GMT)
... "Good Lord!" my head is starting to hurt.

In any case, this is Saturday and I'm not paying much attention to
anything, but anyway I'll be hanging loosely around here until 5:00 PST/01:00GMT)

Whatever spell has brought me to this insanity of daily Tea Time ...

... it is apparently still in effect.


For the moment, it apparently will continue. Same time. Same channel.

POOF



ummm...I don't understand a thing you just said...I just input my reply and press submit

I'm not very knowledgeable about computers...

Well, my friend, our hour is up (glances about mournfully.) (cyberhug)

Until next time..."'tis twenty year 'til then..."

(mounts the gangplank--beautiful perfumed purple sails are released, filling the air with jasmine. I wave good-bye from the prow.)



as the Tea Time turns <smile> PG:

Many thanks for lifting my poetic knowledge (poets you mentioned).

The poetry/rhetoric discussion .... ah, many words to say there
and a topic to which I/we shall return, I'm sure.

   Very glad you brought that up to.

As always, bless your heart for painting the scene. I truly am delighted when you arrive.



(technical aside) How fast are your page reloads here in the threads?
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 23, 2002, 7:56 PM 4 of 22

I'm using a Mac Laptop and don't have a broadband connection right now,
and it seems it takes forever and ever to get this page reloaded?



My favourite line by Tagore...
Posted by: Pleasant Guest - Mar 23, 2002, 7:53 PM 5 of 22

"I seem to have loved you in life after life, in age after age, for ever..."

I love the Eastern concept of life being a circle, unending instead of point A to point B...Dear, dear, it's nearly time to go isn't it?

(clap hands for servants to begin collecting remnants of tea.)



but rhetoric is a form of poetry, dear...

Wasn't it Vitellus who said, "My desire to please you, Caesar, is very slight, although I greatly care to know if you are black or white?"

William BLACK ... Good Lord!

SHOUTS

WILLIAM bloody BLAKE

black magic is surely afoot



Tagore: "A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it."

My goodness ... I've been reading Tagore for, how long now ...

... two minutes. <grin>


My poetic scholarship is very slim .. being a rhetorician after all. <smile>

Only a few fragments of actual "serious" verse hang in my brain.

WILLIAM BLACK:

       "Both read the Bible day and night,

       but you read black, where I read white."

Something like that. <smile>

They really are no good once they've cooled (scones) I don't know how coffee shops are able to sell them.

I do still have some moldering pieces in my lower file cabinet, they're pretty old (high-school efforts.)

I doubt they'd appeal here. But I read a great deal. I love Keats, Rossetti, and I'm awfully fond of Rabindranath Tagore, the Bengali poet from the turn of the last century. Do you know him?



And after that ... we're going to have Pleasant_Guest read some of her poetry
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 23, 2002, 7:34 PM 10 of 22

I'm sure that somewhere she has a masterpiece stashed away ...

Nude Platoon must not be our highest art, this afternoon. (Midnight.)



mumbles to self again ...

Talking in mixed tenses? "Do" for "Did"!

This really must be a spell.

Who cast it? Hmmmm



Oh dear, where are my manners? I nearly forgot...

Lays out a pound box of Godiva truffles (half vanilla in dark chocolate, the other classic milk chocolate)

Personally I think the true chocolate aficionado loves darkest best, but...what do I know?

I'm afraid I'm little better than a sensualist storyteller, not a poet (though I used to try.)



Hail Duckwheat! <smile> We're going to sing Duckwheat:The Musical later
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 23, 2002, 7:29 PM 13 of 22

Do you see your song the other night? lol


Hey can this thread reach 500 posts tonight hmmmmmm lol

Seem's I've started typing "their" everytime I mean "there."

Must be a spell.



regarding: time and time changes
Posted by: Pleasant Guest - Mar 23, 2002, 7:23 PM 16 of 22

I'm afraid I'm the worst possible person to discuss that with, I pay very little attention to time in general and math is not my strong suit...

I'm late to work regularly and when my Boss scolds me, I smile and remind him that it really IS 7:30 AM "somewhere in the world, so how can I really be late?"

(grin, sips black cherry sparkling water.)



(aside to PG) Magnificent entrances, and fine storied details ...

Creole mustard ... my, my. <salivating smile>

Their is such poetry in you ... no matter how much you protest.


TECH NOTE: I've got a terribly slow dial-up at the moment
(much worse than it ought to be) ... excuse my slow responses.



Sorry to barge in...
Posted by: jkirch13 - Mar 23, 2002, 7:20 PM 18 of 22

Just wanted to say...PLEASANT ...I read your email and just left you a response! Can't wait to hook up with ya on this topic!

Again...sorry for the intrusion! (slaps hand in being naughty!)



a small practical matter about the Daylight Savings Time fiaso approaching <smile>
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 23, 2002, 7:17 PM 19 of 22

Unless I have miscalculated ...

... Tea Time in L.A. (Pacific Standard Time) is currently
8 hours earlier than London time (Greenwich Mean Time).

Which means it has just turned Midnight where Giles' is.

00:00 GMT

I think. <smile>

But that's about to change.



nodding delightedly...that's all you learn in the south
Posted by: Pleasant Guest - Mar 23, 2002, 7:15 PM 20 of 22

to be a good hostess and an excellent guest.

Do you like creole mustard with your chicken?

(sends beautiful slave girl attendant back to the barge for extra condiments and fresh flowers.)



PG, you are by far the most skillful hostess in the world ...
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 23, 2002, 7:13 PM 21 of 22

sotto voce: must never let her see how impressed I am with her skill with painting the scene ... ego might get out of hand

Pleasant_Guest, how nice to see you.



Okay, I'm all set! (floating in on a cedar barge trimmed in gold and silver-covered oars)
Posted by: Pleasant Guest - Mar 23, 2002, 7:09 PM 22 of 22

(begins arranging dishes of warm grilled herbed chicken breasts, cucumber salad, scones with homemade blackberry jam, and chocolate bread with fresh almond flavoured whipped cream)

Looks pretty huh?

Settling on my corner of the tablecloth, "So, what was your other rhyme about? Buffy's going daft from excessive smuttiness? We should all be so lucky."
