TEA LEAF ACCOUNTING
Posted by: goodtvguy - May 07, 2002, 8:13 PM 1 of 38

There was a Tea Leaf awarded today to Supernatural Lawyer
for her mention of "Collateral Damage." (Making her total 7).


TO SL: Mister Verschip said to say . . . well, it's not something that I
would say, so I won't. But I think you can take it as meaning "Yes"
with a whole lot of enthusiasm. (smile)

Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to SL as he pours more Tequila)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 07, 2002, 8:00 PM 4 of 38

A spy am I? Oh my! I'll play along.
Forget that thing that's sticking in my ear. <g>

The Oracle is listening "half way."
The other half I think we can slip by. <smile>



HR to V (with her brightest smile)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:58 PM 5 of 38

I'm not Catholic
So confessing I don't know...
Will you teach me, pleeease?



The Oracle says . . . (HS )
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 07, 2002, 7:57 PM 6 of 38

All vanity now . . . be gone.
Is the speaker pure?



typo warning (HR to all then to V)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:56 PM 7 of 38

should read: "Sources"; "claim."
See V. what you do to me?
More Tequila, please...



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the bloody Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 07, 2002, 7:54 PM 8 of 38

OK . . . I will confess my vanity.


HR to V.
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:54 PM 9 of 38

Of course I know dear
That you're a sort of spy, an...
Evil ... thing, I'm told?

My source also claim
That girls like that sometimes, right?
Who care what they say!



Mister Verschip whispers . . . (BV to SL)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 07, 2002, 7:48 PM 10 of 38

To hell with O. my dear, I must confess
the presence of your face inspires . . . more thought. <smile>



HR to Mr. V.
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:46 PM 11 of 38

I am not ready
To come clean yet and admit
To strange O my "sins."

Just like he plays games--
One day here, one not-- I can
have many faces. <g>



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to SL regarding who is leading whom! <g>)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 07, 2002, 7:40 PM 12 of 38

I know the Oracle a bit, I think.
I think the lady must must not be so coy. <smile>

(RC)
Admissions of her vices may impress
the Oracle. While sweet lies may do less.<g>



HR to V (hoping O is not listening)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:39 PM 13 of 38

VR has left my dear.
More liquor for us it seems.
You first please: straight up!



HR to O (welcome back!)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:37 PM 14 of 38

Waht do you say? Sins?
Pure and innocent I am,
Like a baby lamb.

V. is making me
Say those things I'm ashamed of...
Help me please, dear O.



I'll "Leave" a final thought, Oracle (SQ)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 07, 2002, 7:36 PM 15 of 38

A connoisseur of chaos might enjoy
This lounge where scenes of sea do shift and vex
And Oracle's evasions seem a ploy
To make us cry (and ask for more), "What's next?!"



Yum! I hate to drink (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 07, 2002, 7:33 PM 16 of 38

and run, but company's here
to talk, drink, and eat.

And they need something
Outside of the tea time lounge
So I must depart. <sigh>



The Oracle says . . . (HS)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 07, 2002, 7:31 PM 17 of 38

The portal passes no sin.
Which will you leave here?



HR to VR
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:30 PM 18 of 38

And of course liquored!
Tequila I will have too
If V follows us.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to delightful ladies ready to sip . . . )
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 07, 2002, 7:29 PM 19 of 38

Tequila shots for all I've set them up.

And beer for those who want to mix them up.

And for the really brave there's Aussie wine.



HR to V
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:28 PM 20 of 38

Females have changed, dear,
Since your days of.. whenever.
Last or first who cares?

Please know: As long as
The drinks are cold, the games fun
And the men blushing...



We need a drink for... (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 07, 2002, 7:26 PM 21 of 38

Verschip too! Liquored women
(pre or post), like men

To be liquored too.
We're gracious creatures, and it
levels the play field



HR to SL (with a BIG smile)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 07, 2002, 7:23 PM 22 of 38

Doubt you? Me? Never!
You are far too good with words.
Who could doubt lawyers?



HR to VR
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:23 PM 23 of 38

Love the topics here!
Drinks, men, sins,... Tell me VR:
What else do we need?



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to all the pre-liquored women present)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 07, 2002, 7:22 PM 24 of 38

Or did I get the order of two words
inverted, when the women should come first. <ewg>



Tequila for me please, Verschip... and (RC)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 07, 2002, 7:21 PM 25 of 38

Will Oracle give voice to clues today?
This portal here, what opens it? Do say!



HR to VR (with an innocent look on her innocent face)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:21 PM 26 of 38

What do you mean dear?
My choice of word is perfect!!
I'm shocked you doubt me.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to all "the ladies" present motioning toward the bar)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 07, 2002, 7:19 PM 27 of 38

It seems to be an open bar again.
I love my liquored women . . .like all men. <ewg>



SL a question: (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 07, 2002, 7:16 PM 28 of 38

Was the word hard a big hint?
How 'bout another?



HR to Mr. V.
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:15 PM 29 of 38

What, no drinks today?
Monday you were so skilled at
Pleasing the ladies. <g>



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to SL regarding sin . . .)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 07, 2002, 7:14 PM 30 of 38

Could it be rhetoric? Or is it men? <ewg>


Oh! Not true sweetheart! (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 07, 2002, 7:14 PM 31 of 38

You are our bad boy, our Spike
Complete with a chip

Without you, sure we'd
Rebel outright. We need all
your Testosterone!



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC this time and not RC labeled BV . . . to himself)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 07, 2002, 7:12 PM 32 of 38

I must not show my nervousness again.
I'll flash my teeth and give it a cool spin. <g>



HR to O or whoever
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:12 PM 33 of 38

Take note: correction.
Greed is not my favor'te sin.
Well, another is.

Can you guess which one? <g>
Maybe hard: after all I'm
Lawyer, French, female... <eg>



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to VR . . . with nervous delight)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 07, 2002, 7:10 PM 34 of 38

Good Lord . . . a quatrain coming in the door?
With you around they don't need me "no more." <nervous smile>



Hello to all! Allow me to introduce myself
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 07, 2002, 7:08 PM 35 of 38

I am the maker; little songs I make;
An artificer, words I shift and play.
I best perceive myself when words I take
From dear Forensic (what a GUY!), my way.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to SL as he wanders in off the TERRACE)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 07, 2002, 7:08 PM 36 of 38

The lovely lawyer back to earn more leaves. <smile>

What's happened to the food here? Monks-R-Us?



HR to O or whoever is here (because someone has to do it)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 07, 2002, 7:06 PM 37 of 38

Greed: my favor'te sin...
But democracy rules here.
Today I will play

And cite the movie:
It’s Collateral Damage...
For the “cause” only.
