I printed off the last
sonnets and you know I would help you get to England if
I could. But, there are those pesky mortgage payments
the bank insists I make every month and the kids need to
be fed on a regular basis so I won't be able to lend a
hand. I'm sure that a guardian angel will come through
in the end. Miracles happen everyday; you just have to
look for them.
It sounds like the finale was
everything anyone could hope for. Even Maya, who has
taken the new name "sunnycloud" I think, is impressed.
Can't hardly wait! Apparently, the grand master, Joss,
himself, posted on the linear last night. I'm tempted to
read it now but I'll wait for Saturday. Anticipation and

So that's it hu? Buffy
and Tea Time <smile> No spoilers here, but may I
say last night's finale was pure amazement. Wonderful,
Anyway, if I have not
said it enough, thank you FP for all your hard work and
for finding new ways to challenge us every day. Thank
you to VR, glow and prunehilda for... everything. Thank
you to yelnif for her company at TT.
I look forward
to today's last installment.
And VR, please thank
Portia for me; her help and words meant a lot to
OK I'm still under the spell of last night's
episodes so I'll stop now. I promise, my cynical,
desilusioned, greedy self will soon wake up. Still early
I know today's Tea Time is a momentous
occassion and I might miss it. :o(
glow - May 22, 2002, 11:16
I don't want to miss
it, but since I have to work today and I never ever seem
to leave on time I might <gasp> miss a part of or
all of tea time today. <frown>
I will do my
best to get home in time.
Hoping to see all of
you at Tea Time today.

VretilRaduriel - May 22, 2002, 10:59
It's lovely isn't it?
I always did like that prayer. Just a few thoughts to
add right now (maybe a few more later). Seeing as the C
thread is now open to all, Forensic, I hope you're
enjoying the read. I think you'll find that Kevlar Black
was already in use -- just in a different place with a
different name. And perhaps more valuable for it... As
for Kevlar Red -- I won't be posting there for one
simple reason -- no need to use a secret
My friend Portia tells me you say you
don't know Marshall B., but there's a story there the
last few days that speaks to strange occurrences and
stranger links. I'll explain more later, but suffice it
to say I'm now convinced more than ever you should read
his stories and get to know him. I'll tell you all what
I wrote to M.B. a few days ago. Dear Marsh -- Ever get
the feeling though the threads connecting the universe
may be stretched to ethereal thinness, they still hold
some surprising strength?
And though I don't want
to spoil BK's season finale -- I'll say this now -- the
sonnets posted, by all this last week, do seem a bit
prophetic, don't they. I guess we actually did use the
metaphors of Buffy in verse. Or maybe it's the other way
around. Buffy uses our metaphors in a different format.
Lots of surprises these last few
days. Thanks to everyone -- FP and the C -- for
providing the links.

OF SAINT FRANCIS

Where there is hatred

Where there is injury pardon.
Where there is doubt faith.
is despair hope.
Where there is darkness light.
And where there is sadness joy.

not so much seek to be
consoled as to console;
to be understood as to

it is in giving that we receive-
it is in
pardoning that we are pardoned.
And it's in
dying that we are born to eternal life.

about the dynamics of this "game" when she began to

She then retained my counsel.
At her request, I

for the prosecution in pending cases, I'll remind you
that disclosure of such information is required or you
stand in jeopardy of a mistrial.
I would also
like to inform you that your most recent post has the
appeareance of a veiled threat towards my client and may
be viewed as an attempt to strongarm a witness in the

witness tampering is frowned upon by virtually all
Pursuant to the matter of your post
demanding haikus, it is my client's understanding that
the "request" for haikus was made by one Hollywood
Holyman. Further, this gentleman does not affiliate
himself with "The Powers That Tea" and may even be

are inappropriate and could be considered
