I get it now. Thanks!
It's all about choices, right?
And consequences.

The Oracle says . . . (HS to yelnif . . . as Tea Time ends)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 30, 2002, 8:00 PM 3 of 27

One minute from now it starts.
Until then just noise.


<smile>



The Oracle says . .. (HS to SL regarding Hollywood & Reality)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 30, 2002, 7:58 PM 4 of 27

Not the reality sold.
But the one that's lived.

Hollywood writers.
Their families think they're nuts
until a big check. <smile>

To play the game here
you must REFUSE nomal life.
Chose to be "crazy."



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to the Oracle and the "C" if lurking . . . and apparently off topic)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 30, 2002, 7:55 PM 5 of 27

The Buffy movie guy that FP met
is one the TV people would forget.

The movie was a joke in most folks eyes,
and even Joss was quick to criticize. . .

. . . the vision that he wanted wasn't there.



....

Well across the seas
Over here we have two days
until "Entropy".

The Bronzers' manner
is insane tonight; I hope
it's worth all the hype



HR to O (I warned you! Still can't get my iambics right... All my apologies)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 30, 2002, 7:52 PM 7 of 27

So, "reality"?
In Hollywood isn't it
ever-changing, O?

Light illusion sells;
Harsh reality does not.
All is Lucid dreams.

And in Lalaland
Be careful not to forget
What's real and what's lie.


( Note: pills getting in the way of complex thought process...)



The Oracle says . . . (HS sotto voce to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 30, 2002, 7:50 PM 8 of 27

We're understaffed you well know.
A host is needed.



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 30, 2002, 7:45 PM 9 of 27

I glanced outside and saw the Terrace bare.
Without a naked Spike . . . no one will care.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to yelnif . . . about those getting ready for Buffy at 8:00 PM)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 30, 2002, 7:42 PM 10 of 27

Only the Big Apple folks
and Eastern time zone.

Out here in L.A.
we are three hours away
from new episode.



The Oracle says (blushing at his own error) "Will process it though."

...


The Oracle says . . . (HS to SL with a smile)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 30, 2002, 7:39 PM 12 of 27

DETECT iambic ERRORS.
Will process it thought. <g>

Consider the lens
of a Hollywood writer.
What's reality?



...

Mister O, I think
They're all buying chips and
reserving couch seats



EOTD (poor attempt at BV... excuse me in advance... the pills have fogged my brain)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 30, 2002, 7:35 PM 14 of 27

Insanity. Scary for a heroe.
Is what we see what is or illusion?
Are we sure the choices we make are real?
Isn't it safer to think we're crazy?

After a much shocking experience
We close our minds to the outside, numb.
We walk around in an armor of fear
Until we wake up to reality.

This reality is hard and painful.
Want to run and hide to a childhood world.
But we all grow up and accept the truth:
This is the world we face ... and proudly chose.



Mister Verschip says . . . (SQ to the Oracle)

It seems forensicpopouri had praise
for going down the nut house plot line path.
It's all been done before in diff'rent ways
but for a lot of fans . . . it raised their wrath. <smile>



The Oracle says . . . (HS to no one in particular)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 30, 2002, 7:25 PM 16 of 27

Such an empty room today.
Buffy's not on yet. <smile>



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to the Oracle regarding FP's sonnet "Beyond Normal Again")
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 30, 2002, 7:23 PM 17 of 27

That's back when he was only writing one
lone sonnet ev'ry day. That can be fun.

I heard him groaning once he upped the pace
and turned his versifying into race . . .



The Oracle says . . . (HS to all present . . . seen or lurking about)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 30, 2002, 7:17 PM 18 of 27

Did you read FP's sonnet.
The first Bronzed sonnet?



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to Oracle with a smirk)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 30, 2002, 7:15 PM 19 of 27

The last one that you gave me "did not keep."
Your henchman stole it back. Left me to weep. <g>



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip . . . while smiling at yelnif)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 30, 2002, 7:12 PM 20 of 27

yelnif beat you to the draw.
yelnif gets a Leaf.

(NOTE: Tea Leaf Platinum)

Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 30, 2002, 7:10 PM 21 of 27

I see you've used the word insanity
a ref'rence to the episode, today?



...
Posted by: yelnif - Apr 30, 2002, 7:10 PM 22 of 27

Yes, an episode
that deals with *insanity*...
How appropriate...



The Oracle says . . . (HS to all)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 30, 2002, 7:08 PM 23 of 27

Don't forget that today's ep
is "Normal Again."



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to yelnif and all)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 30, 2002, 7:06 PM 24 of 27

I saw a stupid post and passed it by.
In any case I know that it's a lie.



The Oracle smiles . . . (HS to yelnif)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 30, 2002, 7:04 PM 25 of 27

Yes, I saw that "pleasant" post.
Some insanity. <smile>

Posted by: yelnif - Apr 30, 2002, 7:02 PM 26 of 27

I'm glad to see a
friendly face. Some one's got it
in for me big time!
