Hey, dear Oracle,
How come HE gets a Tea leaf?
Will I too get one?

What is this "Finnish" secret you have raised.

Does it have Buffy at its bloody core?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to glow)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 23, 2002, 7:51 PM 6 of 25

Do any TERRACE folks know
the "Finnish" secret?



I am just lurking...(HS to all)
Posted by: glow - Apr 23, 2002, 7:48 PM 7 of 25

Back and forth, from the Terrace...

To Tea Time...lurk, lurk. <smile>

A point for that reference.

A Tea Leaf for V.

Then let's go on and play as we should play. <smile>

What costume should I wear if I would pass
through yonder shimm'ring wall to who knows where?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschp)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 23, 2002, 7:38 PM 10 of 25

If you would do your job . . . then
I wouldn't have to.

I thought the rule was not to mention it
directly, but to subtlely refer
to elements within the story line
and make our metaphors from that ep's clay.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to any who are listening)

And you are stuttering, sir.
Watch those double posts.

Don't understand the new clues.

Dear Mr. "O" I think that you're the one
who is to blame for starting late this show.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to glow who also looks out of breath <smile>)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 23, 2002, 7:13 PM 22 of 25
