LET'S THINK THIS THROUGH
... when Buffy had found out
DoubleMeat's a lie -- a scam of sorts,
veggie fraud -- she did not rush to
the news to all, nor tell it to the

blackmail them, of course.

No big-bucks pay-off, though she
had the force.
BUT YES, to be
rehired where she'd been
A petty blackmail to go
back to work.
Join in the fraud, for
"chump change" she'd keep quiet.

come to buy'it.
Would she have kept
an Enron lie as well?

WHY I POST IN SHAKESPEAREAN SONNETS
TEA TIME INVITATION: <smile> 7-8 PM

Thanks, P.J. ... I'm
still working on the science of Tea Time
Please correct me if I'm
wrong, but it appears that "BRONZE TIME" is
Time in the U.S.
Now, why on earth Bronze time
should be on New York City time,
when Sunnydale ...
me ... Spike (seen him in the supermarket) ...
the Pacific time zone is beyond me <smile> ...
but, to keep it straight:
Tea Time in L.A.
4-5 PM Out here in
5-6 PM in the
6-7 PM in the Big
7-8 PM in the Big
Apple ... and on the Bronze clock.
12-1 AM in
As for Daylight Savings time ... for one
week it appears London
will be ahead of U.S. on
Daylight Savings time shift ... so,
that "L.A. Tea Time" will be 11:00 PM-12 Midnight
a week ... before U.S. shifts forward, too.
I'll have to see what the Bronze clock does when the
U.S. shift comes. <smile>
In any case
... I'll be posting the "Tea Time in L.A." thread
at 7 PM Bronze time, today.

Why not simply post a
proper invitation to tea?
Stating time, place,
dress code if neccessary?
That's how I handle my
SORRY ABOUT TIME CONFUSION <smile>
this thread is NOT Tea Time, but a reference
forensicpopouri - Mar 24, 2002, 5:00
I'm still working out
a good strategy to handle Tea Time.
... is not Tea Time .... but a
link to link to when Tea Time comes around.
try to post something earlier in the day for that
Tea Time ... and I label
date</I> Tea Time)
Normally I try
to do that by Noon Pacific ... but not
"TEA TIME in L.A." thread gets
posted/started at Tea Time. <smile>
Pacific, 00:00 GMT (until the time change
Thanks for "early" response to
today's sonnet ... that's always
fine to do. (Gives
me some feedback before Tea Times starts).
yada yada... <smile> as I said, I'm still working
to do this in a "sane"
keep missing tea time FP

But I had a decent
excuse for Saturday. BtVs airs at 5pm on Saturdays on an
independent station in my neck of the woods which is 4pm
your time.Sooooo, did you solve your problem with
Daylight Savings Time. Here is the answer if you didn't.
The clocks actually move forward by one hour (Spring
forward, fall back). 12 midnight will become 1am in
London England while LA time will stay constant(ie.
4pm).This will be the case for one week. After the week
LA time will move ahead by one hour and everything will
be OK. Sorry, but I kind of hone in problems and have to
seek an answer. I confess I have Bachelor of Science
degree with a minor in economics. I'm trying to
reconcile my left brain with my right brain. Thats why
the poetry etc. I'm interested in the poetry of science
and the science of poetry.

Earl grey with milk
and no sugar please..
Buffy never tries to fight
the corruption of the world, in the sense of organised
corporate evil. Even she hasn't got the power to do
They've brought that into Angel + I think
it's given it a really dark, almost hopeless feel. Don't
go there - it's the inner demons matter most
Buffy's in a sad, confused place at the
moment...a fallen hero?
Oh, u have too many
timezones....and wots the enron bit?

I had never really
thought much about this...BUT you are sooo right! It is
not her character to be involved with selling a lie to
the public...that must be how desperate she is for cash!
Anyway...just peeked in and thought I'd tell you good
point! Hmmm wonder if they will adress her job at
Doublemeat soon...she can't stay there..it's sooo not
