A few (very) quick
notes from the L.A. Book Festival which may be expanded
(1) Best words spoken all weekend were by
Maya Angelieu . . .
I'll try to extract some
from my notes later.
(2) A Hollywood producer
friend/enemy (smile) introduced me to
a friend of
hers . . . who was one of the producers of the
Vampire Slayer movie.
Sunday I wore a white suit with a spectacular flag shirt
tasteful than anything you can buy now
<smile>) . . . along with my
RLR red hair (and
being 6'3") I was quite spectacular . . . A woman
if she could take a picture of me.
Spoke with a couple of agents and a couple of major
presidents . . . on general
principles. Refused to talk to an agent who
compliimented a writer on his clothes (dressed
like n accountant. <geesh>
encounter with Peter Guber (not as powerful as he
but still "a force") . . .

attention fully to L.A. Book Festival for the next 48
A quick (but very
warm) welcome to JNW . . . I see the
quality barometer edging higher. Onward
and upward from Big Hair Friday.
I read over any notes left
here over the weekend as Sunday turns to
Santa Monica. <g>
May your weekend bring
you . . . pleasure . . . or interesting encounters . .

JNW - Apr 26, 2002, 5:37
Clever and friendly
indeed! My thanks for the warm welcome and words of
enjoyment. Seems like those of your "Conspiracy" are
just the type a curious, cautious creature like I might
need when venturing into charmed rooms with walls that
yield only after riddles are solved. I won't be able to
attend tea time today, but this weekend I'll read past
threads and the charactry of this evening's and perhaps
come better attired for Monday's repast. Did I say
cautious? Well, perhaps a little brazen too -- I have a
thought to contribute in relation to blank verse, sweet
lies we protect, Buffy, and tea-time too. And so, with a
sly wink: John Barth once wrote of the "insufferability
of fiction ... that language may be a compound code, and
that the discovery of an enormous complexity beneath a
simple surface may well be more dismaying than
delightful. Eg: the maze of termite-tunnels in your
joist, the intricate cancer in her perfect breast, the
psychopathology of everyday life, the Auschwitz in an
anthill casually DDT'd by a child, the rage of atoms in
a drop of ink -- in short, anything examined curiously
enough." Be well!
super secret "Search" feature of Tea Time
. . . The TTREF codes . . .
forensicpopouri - Apr 26, 2002, 5:26
<smile> . . . you SHOULD be able to find Tea
topics you miss using the Bronze SEARCH
For example: Try typing
to find the Tea Time
hour (portal) thread #31.
After it's posted today
at 7:00 PM Bronze Time, you should
be able to find
Friday's Tea Time (#32) by doing a search
To find today's CORKBOARD:
search for TTREF_32CB
To find today's TERRACE
(after 7PM) search for TTREF_32TR
The sonnets and other rhetorical verse haven't been
consistently, but I'll try to work out a good
scheme for that and
add the codes in the responses.
ALSO NOTE: I say should . . . be able
to use the SEARCH feature
BUT it may be a little
confusing because I have (in the past) posted
serveral html tests with the reference codes in them
BOTTOM LINE: This may be more
confusing than helpful (given past
<g>) . . . but ultimately everything should be
SEARCH . . . even if I have to create new
codes and add them as
responses to the correct
(And I thought I was supposed to be
preparing for the Book Festival.
Hiya FP and SNL

Thank you very much
for the 3 TLPs. You are both so gracious.
Unfortunately, I too will not be able to attend
TT today. <frown>
Hair? Damn it I've wasted
all of my brain energy on my lesson plans.
Of course I will check in later tonight to
see what I missed.
I hope both of you have
wonderful weekends. SNL in Las Vegas and FP at your book
festival. I'm envious, I'll be working in a mall.
<big frown> Very stifling for the imagination.

that ideas cannot be protected by copyright. Oh well...
Good luck with the "hair" theme! (too bad. I had much to
say about Cordelia's hair ... here is a topic: "is it
one of the signs of an upcoming apocalypse?" Discuss

It's confirmed: I will
not be visiting Tea Time today.
So humble request:
can you post the references to today's TT on Monday's CB
so that I can catch up on what I missed? (or so that I
can simply make sure that you do not defame or violate
anymore of he "C"'s legal rights! Don't think I'm not
paying attention! <tired Friday smile>)
this week-end will bring a lot of changes: you with your
"Lola look," me with my potential Las Vegas big hair...
