I feel prophetic now, I won't say why. <smile>

Get a Life? How Nice!
Is that the best you can do?
This chat's for minds that

Can handle verse and rules
Too difficult for you? Or
Will you try to play?



HR to glow
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 08, 2002, 7:59 PM 5 of 48

As VR said well
These Tea Leaves are yours to keep.
No sharing this time!



To all
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 08, 2002, 7:56 PM 6 of 48

I would love to stay
And with you play, this rhyme game
a bit more, but time

does fly, and so must
I. Like monkeys far from shore,
I have many chores

And no banana
pie, oh no banana pie,
but work, so I sigh.

Goodbye!



The Oracle says . . . (HS)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 08, 2002, 7:55 PM 7 of 48

Virtue rears its pretty head.
Who will cut it off?



What the F*ck are you dumbasses talking about

get a life


Ta ta for Yelnif (HS)
Posted by: glow - May 08, 2002, 7:55 PM 9 of 48

Another time we will chat.
Sweet dreams little bird.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to glow and VR regarding Tea Leaf votes)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:53 PM 10 of 48

Such courtesy speaks well for Tea Time's grace.
Democracy is uglier than this. <smile>



No, no -- no need Glow
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 08, 2002, 7:50 PM 11 of 48

Tea leaves to me are in a
Dispute anyway.



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to yelnif as she graciously leaves our presence)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:49 PM 12 of 48

Good night dear yelnif. Sorry Tea Time's late
in your part of the world. Appreciate . . .

. . . your being here at all. Perhaps sometime
in future years a GMT Tea Time.



SL and VR (HS)
Posted by: glow - May 08, 2002, 7:48 PM 13 of 48

You are both too too too kind
I'll share them with you.



Spike's special tea brew (HS...to Mr.Verschip)
Posted by: glow - May 08, 2002, 7:46 PM 14 of 48

Well I don't know, but I'll guess
Perhaps it's part blood.



....
Posted by: yelnif - May 08, 2002, 7:45 PM 15 of 48

Then I'll be singing
In my sleep. 'Tis bedtime for
school students, methinks.

Farewell, Love to stay,
alas, this bird's gotta fly.
Peace and Love. Yelnif.



HR to all (AND Mr. V who likes drama so much!)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 08, 2002, 7:44 PM 16 of 48

I am not the kind
Who'll spend a date half present.
No hard feelings, dear?

As for the vote, well,
I'll pick glow's proposition.
As a welcome back.



Mister Verschip says . . . (SQ + BV to ALL. . . regarding How Spike Makes Tea)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:43 PM 17 of 48

While you deliberate on who should win
the Tea Leaves for the missing line of verse . . .
I'd like to know who in this strange Tea den
knows what Spike's tea is made of. Something worse . . .


. . . than what we serve here in this Portal space.



My vote runs to Glow
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 08, 2002, 7:42 PM 18 of 48

Appointments to keep and plans
to make, and yet, she...

still finds time for verse
And good verse too, now mind you!
And so I vote Glow <smile>



I agree with V (HS and HR to SNL)
Posted by: glow - May 08, 2002, 7:41 PM 19 of 48

SL you make a fine point.
Yet was he angry...

when attacking B?
He had thoughts of love in mind
Of pleasure, not pain



I vote for VR (HS to all)
Posted by: glow - May 08, 2002, 7:37 PM 20 of 48

She was much more creative

Plus, she gave two choices.



CORRECTION: RC not BV
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:36 PM 21 of 48

. . .


A good point SL (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 08, 2002, 7:36 PM 22 of 48

What a mess they've all made of
themselves and each other



SL and VR (HS...to SNL and VR <smile>)
Posted by: glow - May 08, 2002, 7:36 PM 23 of 48

Where are my manners today?

Hi, glad to be here. <ecstatic smile>



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to all . . . except SL who cancels a date, then comes anyway)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:35 PM 24 of 48

Whose line of verse best fits the missing space
in sonnets for today? Who wins first place?



HR to all ( a thought out of the blue about EOTD--Purposedly ignoring Mr. V <g>)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 08, 2002, 7:31 PM 25 of 48

As for Seeing Red,
It left a bitter feeling.
Breaking point for all.

I think I know why
Spike's world is all upside down
Just a thought. Listen.

How human was he
To attempt rape and not bite.
Who would not feel lost?



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to yelnif regarding bursting into song (Listeni ng to his EARPIECE)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:31 PM 26 of 48

Dear yelnif, there is power in your voice.
Use it for good . . . the angels will rejoice.



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to glow . . . regarding Spike's Tea comment)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:28 PM 27 of 48

He said it in his crypt . . . Perhaps to Clem.
But mostly to himself. He speaks to him.



....
Posted by: yelnif - May 08, 2002, 7:25 PM 28 of 48

Hello there Verschip.
I'll try and contain myself
tonight. But I'm not

promising that I
won't burst into song again.
I may get "the urge".



Mister Verschp says . . . (RC with some disappointment . . . but not TOO much <smile>
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:24 PM 29 of 48

Farewell dear SL . . . till we meet again.

I must now give my heart a diff'rent spin. <g>



I think that I heard (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 08, 2002, 7:24 PM 30 of 48

Somewhere, that Powers That Tea
are on vacation.

Something about France.
I'm sure that is what I heard
And a ..."Good Riddance"?



Hiya sweet Yelnif! (HS and HR ...to all)
Posted by: glow - May 08, 2002, 7:23 PM 31 of 48

MV may I have another clue

To whom does he speak...

2) lines of tea or leaves?

Is it Dawn, Buffy or Clem?

Will you share with us?



HR to V (Note to self: did I only want him for his tasty drinks? Mmmm.)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 08, 2002, 7:22 PM 32 of 48

As for our "date" V
Can we postpone to next time?
Cause' I;m not all here.

Work and other things
Would distract me from your words.
I apologize.

But scuh sweet ladies
Are here today. I bet you
Won't miss me. Enjoy!



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to yelnif as she enters)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:21 PM 33 of 48

Our master songstress enters . . . yelnif dear
FP sends special word to welcome you.



Oi where's The Powers? (HR...to Mr.Verschip)
Posted by: glow - May 08, 2002, 7:20 PM 34 of 48

MV should I address you?

Connected are you?



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to glow regarding SPIKE & TEA)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:19 PM 35 of 48

I watched "Red" twice, dear glow, and yes he did. <smile>


.....
Posted by: yelnif - May 08, 2002, 7:19 PM 36 of 48

Greetings ev'ryone.
Well hello there Glow. Has "He"
made any sound yet?



Spike referred to tea? (HR....Oracle)
Posted by: glow - May 08, 2002, 7:17 PM 37 of 48

Re-watching EOTD

I found no such lines.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to glow . . . as he listens to an EARPIECE that no one can see <g>)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:16 PM 38 of 48

Dear glow . . . it's not a single syllable.
A shorter line than that slipped in the verse.



That's Okay Verschip (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 08, 2002, 7:15 PM 39 of 48

At this point, I've got my own.
(A very long day)



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to the lovely ladies present . . . with some embarrassment)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:13 PM 40 of 48

Such lovely verse I hear as I stroll in.

But due to Corp'rate policy . .. no gin.




Is this the short straw?
Posted by: glow - May 08, 2002, 7:13 PM 41 of 48

"There's several, so let's go one by one."

Can I just do a little tweaking? Make it this:

There's several, so let us go one by one.



Why thank you Verschip (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 08, 2002, 7:12 PM 42 of 48

Good to "read" you; you too Glow
Glad you played hooky!



Here is my humble offering as well (SQ to Oracle)
Posted by: glow - May 08, 2002, 7:11 PM 43 of 48

AND SO WE SAIL through bodies unperturbed.

I BUY TWO BEERS (my own of lesser kind).

WE FIND A BOOTH . . . where we won't be disturbed . . .

I take a swig and then I pick his mind.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to VR as he wanders in off the monkeyless Terrace)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - May 08, 2002, 7:10 PM 44 of 48

Ah yes, VR . . . the one with angel's name.

No, not THAT angel. Better one than that. <smile>



Forgo my lesson (HR...to all)
Posted by: glow - May 08, 2002, 7:10 PM 45 of 48

Instead played in the bronze threads

I'll pay piper later.



While it's quiet, I'll offer lines for FP's sonnet (RC -- Take your pick)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 08, 2002, 7:08 PM 46 of 48

By fans (though Spike won't mind sweet womankind)
And comfort's fine (the seats are velvet lined)



Hullo! I'm here, but (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 08, 2002, 7:06 PM 47 of 48

Afraid I won't stay too long.
Too much work to do!
