The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip regarding NOW and THEN)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 19, 2002, 8:01 PM 3 of 27

And cool postmodern people
understand quite well . . .

. . . that all history
is there for all to survey.
And choose as we will.

TIME RUNS OUT



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 19, 2002, 7:58 PM 4 of 27

But we're all cool, postmodern people now
who, 'fore they'd speak iambic, milk a cow.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip regarding Elizabethan England)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 19, 2002, 7:55 PM 5 of 27

back then not only Shakespeare
wrote lots of sonnets.

It was all the rage.
The Slayer at that time, too.
AND Elizabeth.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle . . . blushing at his ignorance this time)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 19, 2002, 7:52 PM 6 of 27

Good lord, my brain is fried, forgot the Queen
of England when dear Shakespeare wrote his lines.



The Oracle says . . . (HS with eyebrows raised to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 19, 2002, 7:50 PM 7 of 27

Heard of Elizabethan?

Does that ring a bell?



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle with a puzzled look on his face)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 19, 2002, 7:48 PM 8 of 27

Elizabeth the ghost, you say. Who's that?


Mister Verschip says . . . (RC ignoring the Oracle for a moment to give his attention to S.L.)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 19, 2002, 7:46 PM 9 of 27

Your graciousness exceeds your cruelty. <smile>

I have respect for lawyers don't you see.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip in reply to "what's the LOUNGE got?)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 19, 2002, 7:44 PM 10 of 27

The ghost of Elizabeth.

Her spirit smiles down.



To Mr. V.
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 19, 2002, 7:42 PM 11 of 27

1) Dear Mr. Verschip,
Don't worry; I forgave you.
Or did I really?

2) Beware of SL!
The crazy female lawyer.
She bites and she sues

3) Thank JM's buns then;
Because they saved you today...
Perfect distraction!



Mister Verschip says (BV to The Oracle regarding the empty LOUNGE)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 19, 2002, 7:42 PM 12 of 27

The bloody Powers That Tea have made it worse.

They advertise a naked Spike. Good Lord!

And beer out there. What do you have in here?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip about S.L.'s quick exit)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 19, 2002, 7:38 PM 13 of 27

was nice to see a lawyer . . .

with their tongues tied down.
<smile>



Stake me now!
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 19, 2002, 7:35 PM 14 of 27

1) So I confirm it.
I never saw that classic.
Is it possible?

2) Run back to Terrace
Where I can hide and cry much.
And enjoy the view. <g>



Mister Verschip says (BV smiling quite differently at SL than the last time . . .blushing)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 19, 2002, 7:35 PM 15 of 27

I'm sorry Ms. S.L. about last time
my eyes were on vacation on the moon.

About the episode today . . . Some more?
Did you read F.P.'s sonnets for today?



The Oracle says . . . (HS smiling at SL as she enters versifying)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 19, 2002, 7:32 PM 16 of 27

The episode of the day ?

WHEN SPIKE COMES TO TOWN!!!!
<g>



Episode of the Day (HR).. or my poor brain... the sorriest excuse for not participating to TT today!
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 19, 2002, 7:29 PM 17 of 27

1) Sorry Tea Timers
I can't seem to remember
that one episode...

2) I'm not even sure
that I ever saw this one.
Don't be mad at me!

3) Trying to catch up
On the first seasons I missed
Is Hercules' task.

4) No FX, no tapes.
I have to patiently wait
for June DVDs.



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC with a smile to The Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 19, 2002, 7:29 PM 18 of 27

Don't humans fake responses all the time?

And can they fake responses made in rhyme? <g>



The Oracle says (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 19, 2002, 7:27 PM 19 of 27

Are you truly that bothered?

Or faking human?



Mister Verschip says (BV mostly to himself, still fuming about Marster's skinny dipping)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 19, 2002, 7:25 PM 20 of 27

The laws about pollution should be kept.
The water system will need more chlorine.



The Oracle says (HS to Verschip regarding Marster's buns)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 19, 2002, 7:23 PM 21 of 27

That's no concern of mine, sir.

I keep THE PORTAL.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to The Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 19, 2002, 7:21 PM 22 of 27

OK, I'll close my eyes. It hurts my taste.

Please tell me what's the deal with Marster's buns?
Who said he could prance round without his trunks?



The Oracle says (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 19, 2002, 7:18 PM 23 of 27

The programmer fell asleep
before testing it.

Please excuse the mess.
He will have no beer today.
On with the show, now. . .



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to The Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 19, 2002, 7:15 PM 24 of 27

'Twas mumbling to myself there Mr. O.

And, BLOODY HELL, who programmed html
must not have tested 'fore this scene began.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to nobody in particular)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 19, 2002, 7:12 PM 25 of 27

Again comes the noise.
I see nothing to process.

I wait for some verse.



Mister Verschip saunters in from the TERRACE and says to himself . . .
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 19, 2002, 7:10 PM 26 of 27

Bloody skinny dipping! Who does Marster's think he is?
A bloody sodding god or something?
