The literary ref'rences you played
induced a dancing jig with complex steps
my weekend drug consumption <g> has delayed
into a stumble that no taste accepts.

<smile>

POOF



The Oracle says (HS to JNW . . . regarding "names")
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 29, 2002, 8:15 PM 3 of 23

Let's focus on the essense
of your use of names.

My thoughts diverge here.
In Hollywood names
are a currency.

In philosophy
they are idea placeholders.
In stories, players.

Vership, how very nice!
Sure, the lines were worth the wait
I smiled, laughed out loud.

I wish I could stay
Responsibilities call
But thanks for the fun!



Mister Verschip says . . . BV to JNW regarding "complexity"
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 29, 2002, 8:09 PM 5 of 23

Dear J. . . .do not refrain from higher things.
But bridge it down to cats . . . as up to kings. <smile>



The Oracle says . . . (HS to all . . . about EXTENDING TEA TIME because of late start)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 29, 2002, 8:06 PM 6 of 23

Late starting 20 minutes.
We shall continue.

Twenty after 8:00
will be today's closing time.
(This won't be standard).

Triangulation of three works of art
should be within my brains capacity.

Three thousand books live on my shelves disturbed
by all my constant ruffling of each page.

But Tea Time is a special horror show.
And sometimes I can't see where the wind Blows.



Verschip (BV -- and to all)
Posted by: JNW - Apr 29, 2002, 8:00 PM 8 of 23

Oh oops! That's little fun on days like these.
Now banish high art and play at less work.
It was a quirky thought. Nothing much more.



The Oracle says . . .(HS to JNW)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 29, 2002, 7:55 PM 9 of 23

Add a bridge for Hornblower.
Giles in the crows nest.

Dear J. . . . you've stretched the calibre in here
beyond the normal bore so much . . . I pause
to add more powder to my thinking cap. <g>



Oracle

Perhaps it's accent
My emphasis runs oddly
It's true, I'll try more. <smile>

I'm sorry that I jumped the gun so soon.
We're all on topic now. (I'm such a goon.) <g>



Verschip
Posted by: JNW - Apr 29, 2002, 7:44 PM 13 of 23

I'm waiting; the topic has been deployed
Any comments? Thoughts? Wisdom unalloyed?



The Oracle says (HS to JNW bitching about iambic pentameter .
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 29, 2002, 7:44 PM 14 of 23

I hate to be a stickler
when your thoughts are fine.

But your iambic
bongo drums need some tuning.
I'm the Oracle! <smile>

About this sodding Book Fair . . . Buffy's where?
Oh I know there's a Buffy "name" in there . . .

. . . amidst the CORKBOARD notes that FP left.
But yammering at Tea Time is a theft . . .

... of what the stupid Portal represents.
Must ev'ry day I drop; some sodding hints?



Okay, on to Dark Ages now -- a thought

Hamlet says to Horatio a line
Quote: There are more things in heaven and earth
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

Horatio, faithful friend through excess
Madness, vengeance. Horatio who hears
"The rest is silence" and stills not his fears
Horatio, of course, also appears
As Hornblower Forrester's fans hold dear
What should we make of this? A joke? A game?
An inside allusion playing with names?



To FP
Posted by: JNW - Apr 29, 2002, 7:35 PM 17 of 23

And now I'm "speaking"
At the same time as you. Still
even work can be fun.

Think of Giles. Even he
Likes swordplay from time to time
And loves to talk names.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to JNW regarding Monday)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 29, 2002, 7:34 PM 18 of 23

My last word on this. <smile>
Follow-up on the Book fest
was exhausting too.

Keeping power balls
bouncing at the right angles
can be quite tricky.


BOOKFAIR BITCHING STOPS HERE <ewg>



HS in general :)
Posted by: JNW - Apr 29, 2002, 7:30 PM 19 of 23

Quiet day today
Some Mondays can be tiring
I hope yours was not



The Oracle says (HS to JNW regarding Book Fair)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 29, 2002, 7:29 PM 20 of 23

Unfortunately all FUN
gets stripped out by "work."

Always being "on" . . .
Having to keep all names straight.
Keep research in head.



The Oracle says . . . (HS smiling at typos below in WELCOME)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 29, 2002, 7:26 PM 21 of 23

Today's the 29th day
of the month. Monday.

Crazy Monday goofs.
May be more before too long. <smile>

Hi to all of you.
