TIME In L.A. (4-5 PM Pacific) 3/25 Monday's Topic: If you
could speak one HAIKU to Joss ...|
Welcome to Tea Time . . . Haiku
today, sonnetizing tomorrow<g> ... What
would you say to Joss...

could speak to Joss Whedon face to face . .
. . . BUT you would
only be allowed 17 SYLLABLES.
You have just entered a daily alternative
where everyone is tanned, beautiful,
in the Buffyverse. Yes, friends, once again . . .

about in Hollywood ... and, frequently find
in a situation where I can "cross paths
briefly" with a power player in

worth of words before security whisked you

as many sonnets
as Shakespeare (or Wordsworth?) <smile> ... or
until we take over
the Buffyverse <grin> ... or
the world really and truly comes to an end. <ewg>
