HR to Verchip (grateful for this ray of culture in an obscure Tea Time)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 02, 2002, 8:00 PM 2 of 25

I knew the pithy
Smoke "stuff" to perform her job...
But the "gas" is news.



The Oracle says . . . (HR to the Pacific itself)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 02, 2002, 7:59 PM 3 of 25

Oh beautiful waves
leading to infinity.

I keep this PORTAL.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to SL regarding gas at Delphi)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 02, 2002, 7:54 PM 4 of 25

They recently discovered underneath
the temple . . . fissures that seep special gas.

A natural occurence all these years.

And yes it is a gas that gets you high.



The Oracle says . . . (HR . . . taking all info into consideration but directing it nowhere)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 02, 2002, 7:51 PM 5 of 25

Hughes has discipline.
But she does not have "that thing."
What is that thing called?

It's a signature
. . . only Slutskaya has it.
It's her special thing.



HR to Veschip (smiling)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 02, 2002, 7:50 PM 6 of 25

I don't remember
Seeing a gas pipe when I
Visited Delphi...



HR to O (to answer your question about sweet sixteen)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 02, 2002, 7:47 PM 7 of 25

It was Sarah Hugues.
What is this with those questions?
Testing my "knowledge?"



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to SL regarding the Oracle's strange behavior)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 02, 2002, 7:46 PM 8 of 25

The Oracle at Delphi would sniff gas
beneath the temple 'fore she spoke her mind.



HR to O (even more confused... does this have to do with the EOTD?)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 02, 2002, 7:42 PM 9 of 25

The only female
to "triple lutz-triple loop..."
I don't know what else.



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to SL regarding FP)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 02, 2002, 7:41 PM 10 of 25

Like Angel, sometimes lawyers turn him on.
Pretend intend of king, that he's a pawn.

(smile)



The Oracle says . . . (HR to no one in particular)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 02, 2002, 7:39 PM 11 of 25

That lucky sixteen
who stole Irena's medal . . .
what's her silly name?



HR to Veschip (smiling)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 02, 2002, 7:36 PM 12 of 25

I will let FP
Fantasize about weddings.
I am no "Muriel"!



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to SL regarding sonnet #4 today)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 02, 2002, 7:31 PM 13 of 25

I am a bit confused . . . will you be wed?
forensicpopouri was spouting "law."

(smile)



The Oracle says . . . (HR probably to SL . . . but who knows, today <g>)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 02, 2002, 7:29 PM 14 of 25

ALL skaters can jump.

But they can't do what SHE can.

Something of her own.



The Oracle says . . . (HR to SL regarding the SHIMMERING WALL)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 02, 2002, 7:25 PM 15 of 25

I see the Ocean
through that SHIMMERING wall there.
In sync with the waves.



HR to O (SL looking slightly confused... Remembering SMG on skates... still confused)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 02, 2002, 7:24 PM 16 of 25

She is world champion
And can jump like no other.
Other than that... What?



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to himself and all . .. except the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 02, 2002, 7:21 PM 17 of 25

I'd like a Portal pass, but O. is nuts.
He has been sipping something strange today.



The Oracle says . . . (HR to SL regarding "silver medalist")
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 02, 2002, 7:19 PM 18 of 25

Slutskaya is gold.

She is the best. For one thing.

Can you guess that thing?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to SL regarding Tea Leaf)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 02, 2002, 7:16 PM 19 of 25

prunehilda would win
if she were here now.
<smile>



HR to O (for making my head hurt even more)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 02, 2002, 7:16 PM 20 of 25

What is this haiku
On a silver medalist?
Relevant? How so?

And dear Oracle
What is this wall that shimmers?
Hey, YOU said to "ask"!

I am very bold...
For such a normal person <smile>...
No offense I hope.



HR to O about today's "riddle" (with much help from the "C")
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 02, 2002, 7:13 PM 21 of 25

The answer is it...
The Nutri-Matic Drinks
Synthesizer. Well?

I mean, it DID serve
a drink that was “unlike tea.”
Am I even right?

If not, I’ll just say:
“Don’t Panic” and hitchhike far.
In humiliation.

Or else: “Infinite
Improbability Drive”
As prunehilda suggest?

(Is so please give her
the tea leaf that she deserves.
Must go. Head hurts. Much)



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip regarding monkey & skating)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 02, 2002, 7:12 PM 22 of 25

There was monkey doodle-ing
out on the Terrace.

As for the skater . . .
I will let you ponder her
and figure skating.



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to the Oracle as he wanders in off the Terrace)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 02, 2002, 7:10 PM 23 of 25

I saw the anti-monkey sign outside.
And now with Russians you're preoccupied?



The Oracle says . . . (HR apparently off-topic . . . but maybe not)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 02, 2002, 7:07 PM 24 of 25

Only one skater . . .
sweet Irina Slutskaya
will I ever" love."
