The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip regarding how "Tea Time" is played)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 01, 2002, 8:00 PM 2 of 30

There is no wrong way to play.
Are some ways better?


<smile>

He could be fun if only he could end
His insistence on perfection and bend



CORRECTION: "Is something wrong with how we play this hour?"

...


Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 01, 2002, 7:57 PM 5 of 30

So little mention of the daily ep?

Is something with how we play this hour?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip regarding uses of Tea Leaves)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 01, 2002, 7:54 PM 6 of 30

A Portal Pass can't be bought.
But Tea Leaves have use.



OOOPS
Posted by: JNW - May 01, 2002, 7:53 PM 7 of 30

Poor Impulse control
On my part, while playing games
But I'll recover



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to JNW regarding Xander and smoochies)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 01, 2002, 7:52 PM 8 of 30

The pilot script described him as more fair
than just a joke that walked but was no fun.



As for Oracle (HR)
Posted by: JNW - May 01, 2002, 7:50 PM 9 of 30

Poor impulse control
On my part, playing games
But I'll recover <g>



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle regarding his TWO new Tea Leaves Platinum)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 01, 2002, 7:48 PM 10 of 30

I thank you O. for rectifying that.
But are the Tea Leaves good for anything?

A PORTAL PASS perhaps. . . when I've enough?



Verschip (HR)
Posted by: JNW - May 01, 2002, 7:48 PM 11 of 30

Oh? Why I wonder?
Some sloppy scenes or his bad
behaviour lately?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to JNW)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 01, 2002, 7:45 PM 12 of 30

Was the name you wanted gone?
Or did you mess up? <g>



Mister Verschip says (BV to JNW regarding names and kissing)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 01, 2002, 7:43 PM 13 of 30

Too bad about the name you most desired.

As for the kissing . . . Xander's off my list
of kissing scenes I'd want to watch again.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip regarding his unfairly expropriated Tea Leaf)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 01, 2002, 7:40 PM 14 of 30

It wasn't right. No, not fair.
I say you have TWO.



Verschip (RC & BV)
Posted by: JNW - May 01, 2002, 7:39 PM 15 of 30

Not yet. I've squandered one too soon in chat
Too blushing, BUT not humble -- smile -- such that
I can't the name of Shahrazad claim now.

Kissing sweets are fun to watch regardless
of who is kissing who I think, don't you?



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 01, 2002, 7:38 PM 16 of 30

The last Tea Leaf you gave me was removed
from my sweet grasping hands in no time flat.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip and all)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 01, 2002, 7:35 PM 17 of 30

An "Entropy" reference.
One Tea Leaf for you.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle about Entropy)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 01, 2002, 7:32 PM 18 of 30

I thought the kissing scene was nicely done.
Yes, like "all guys" I like that kind of thing. <no expression>



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip . . . then to JNW)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 01, 2002, 7:29 PM 19 of 30

I suspect all your "smiling."
Too much smiling . . . hides.

Welcome J.N.W.
Sorry you can't stay for long.
Thank you for your verse.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to JNW)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 01, 2002, 7:27 PM 20 of 30

Dear J.N.W. . . . so glad you came.

But still . . .no new "brand name" identity? <smile>



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 01, 2002, 7:25 PM 21 of 30

I take all things into view.
All your past statements.



A quick dash to tea (HS)
Posted by: JNW - May 01, 2002, 7:24 PM 22 of 30

Occupational 'constraints'
Mean I must fly soon.

But I thought the song
Was lovely too. Pure sound and
melodies, please me.



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 01, 2002, 7:23 PM 23 of 30

The tear that streaked my cheek was not a lie.
Why must you treat me like a cyber-spy?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 01, 2002, 7:22 PM 24 of 30

You say that you have been moved.
You say many things.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle with no hint of irritation . . . that you could see)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 01, 2002, 7:20 PM 25 of 30

It's no trick that my soul is moved by sound
of bluegrass singers who've hit the big time. <smile>



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip . . . with an air of suspicion)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 01, 2002, 7:18 PM 26 of 30

Are you up to your old tricks?
Feigning human-ness.?



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle about last night's new Buffy episode "Entropy")
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 01, 2002, 7:16 PM 27 of 30

I liked the song that played there at the end.
That little bit by Krauss I think it was.



The Oracle says . . . (HS with some irritation . . . but even more authority)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 01, 2002, 7:15 PM 28 of 30

The Bronze is not working well.
Strange error pages.



Mister Verschip says (SQ to himself mainly but to anyone else around)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 01, 2002, 7:13 PM 29 of 30

It seems forensicpopouri's been bad. <g>
It waits all day to put his sonnets up.
If he should keep this up, this tardy lad
should get a spanking. But who'd do the whup. <ewg>
