#23 - Ted
- Bad Eggs
I watched both of these two again
tonight, and have just wrapped up
significance/insignificance in one sonnet.
LINE: Two of those episodes that don't effect the story
(i.e., stand-alone, non-arc eps). Since
we're approaching 154 so fast,
I don't think I'll
waste anymore sonnets on those. (No Spike. Need

"instead" instead of "intend"
(but it is of no
consequence in any case).

becoming more oracular.

true. But interpretation's a bitch.

interest in figure skating . . .

Did I truly read the
Oracle aright when he proclaimed "There is no wrong way
to play" last night?
And another post
JNW - May 02, 2002, 10:19
<I truly must learn
how to vary my type as FP does. This is becoming
downright pedestrian.> prunehilda: Congratulations on
your tea leaf and my special thanks for your
conversation earlier today. Much greater clarity from
you and exposition from Supernatural Lawyer, than the
Oracle. You've both left me with some intriguing
thoughts that might just spark some gunpowder for me
JNW - May 02, 2002, 10:13
I read the posts about
"inspirational fumes" both here and in the lounge. Are
you sure there wasn't something in the tea as well --
perhaps a special variety of mushrooms? Even Verschip's
responses seem a bit off in spots. And that monkey
posting on the terrace! I'd like to know, how, if he
can't read, he can write. Or, is this a case of "get
enough monkeys on the terrace, ply them with pan
galactic gargle blasters, and put keyboards in front of
them, and -- voila you'll get a spoof of Hamlet in
pefect iambic pentameter. I not quite sure I trust that
monkey (though I'd trust him less if he wore pants). SL:
you did passing well considering the constraints
(excesses for some) in tea-time today! I'll think on
strange posts and let you know.

Lawyer, (hereafter referred to as the "Agent") hereby
declare that any and all Tea Leaf released today May 2,
2002 shall be immediately transfered to prunehilda
(hereafter referred to as the "Principal") . When
responding to the Oracle (hereafter referred to as "stop
smockin' the carpet"), the Agent was acting on behalf of
the Principal and denies having any proprietary interest
in said Tea Leaf.
Any and all dispute arising from
this document will be resolved through arbitration with
the Alameda County Association or, alternatively, a
drinking contest on the Terrace.

PUBLIC NOTICE (regarding the Portal
forensicpopouri - May 02, 2002, 8:35
When I made my
excursion Saturday to the site of the
materialization on Santa Monica Beach . . .
. . .
I did notice a strange smell wafting up through
when I was marking the letters.
on the Oracle's<b/> behavior today, I can only
that she/he/it is being influenced by whatever
that smell is.
HOWEVER . . . based on a complex
analysis of the Oracle's
textual output, it's TRUTH
coefficient has not been effected.
Hermeneutic difficulty will increase. But the
may get you a portal pass.

The Tea Time
record shows that prunehilda wrote an
sonnet . . . and then
In any case, since she was not at
Tea time . . . she cannot score a Tea Leaf
Infinite Improbability Drive
COMMENTARY: I notice the continuing
"strategy" of the C to be to
only send one
slayer into the arena at a time.
. . Supernatural lawyer "spoke" the answer
Tea Time . . . and therefore gains the Tea
Leaf to her tabulation.
HOWEVER (smile) . . .
precedent has been set that Tea Leaves may be
THEREFORE: If Supernatural
lawyer wishes to give today's Tea Leaf
prunehilda . . . that is her right to do
IF THAT IS THE CASE . . . then all that is
required is for SL to again publicly
state her intent
to transfer the Tea Leaf (to prunehilda) and it shall be

Ok, today's tea time
was more than confusing. Sorry if I did not represent
the "C" as I should have...
So did anybody get a Tea
Leaf? I am just exhausted and must...got back to
