Because this is
becoming addictive and I have far too much to do today,
and far too many vices as it is... First to Glow, who if
she teaches with even a smidge of the personality in her
posts must be well loved by all her students: I'm truly
ususally a lurker -- the one who sits in the back of the
room sipping coffee (horrors! sometimes tea too though)
and listens rather than speaks. So, credit goes to you,
SNL, Verschip, and Yelnif as well as Forensic Popouri. I
never would have spoken had you all not made the tea
room seem like such a clean, well-lighted place full of
delightful people! Next: Um, hmm, actually, "he" is a
she -- I mean me -- I'm a she. Sorry to have misled.
It's those damn initials. I've got to think of a name
soon and after my wonky commentary yesterday, I'm not
quite sure what, since I so clearly pointed out names
have ulterior meanings to me. Nice. Been here two days
and already got myself into a fix. Oh well, no b*lls, no
properly working bongos, and a name I wish were writ in
water, but I'll think of something

DO YOU REALIZE that it has been so
long since a new Buffy episode,
that my FIRST BRONZE
SONNET was about the last new Buffy "Normal Again."?
. . . Good Lord!!!
Since theres a pile
of New York Times I haven't got caught up reading . .
and I need to continue to ponder the poetic
qualities of SNL for her sonnet <smile> . . .
Here's what we'll do.
THE BUFFY EPISODE OF THE
DAY FOR TUESDAY is "Normal Again"
. . . and I'm going
toRe-Run <smile> my BRONZE SONNET #1 . .
which will help get us ready for the brand new
episode TUESDAY night.
UPN will be wrapping up
the rest of Season 6 in May. And I'll write the
of the 154 sonnets I had planned to write for this
by the time the end of the season rolls
I'll submit this now before I hit 1800

tonight, I again profoundly thank your for your

What I can say about
today's Tea Time is that I'm so very pleased that
we...excuse me...you (because you deserve all the
credit, I've just latched onto a good thing
<grin>) have found a new fan in JNW. He sure does
raise the intellectual bar. I'm feeling slightly
intellectually inadequate (hello I need a thesaurus, but
for now let's blame it on the lack of O2) after reading
his and your posts. I'm like the little sister crying,
"Hey! Can I play too?!"
All right, it's lil' sis'
beddy bye time now. Again, I regret to inform you that
I'll be absent from Tea Time for the rest of the week
and part of next week. I'm aiming for a Tea Time fix
sometime next Wednesday.
Wow, this is a long
response. But before I bid you adieu, I want to
congratulate SNL for getting her fourth TLP!
Congratulations SNL and I hope you feel better soon. And
a hello to JNW, so glad you came back for another

Forensic Popouri, I
just read your review of the book festival and I'm sorry
to say that most of the names you dropped flew over my
head. The only one I was familiar with was Maya Angelou
(sp?). Sorry. <sheepish smile> However, I found
your experience intriguing nonetheless, especially the
After reading your
self-description I have this juxtapositional imagery of
you in my head. Before I had you pegged as a stuffed
shirt kind of guy. Perhaps I saw you this way because
you're such a stickler for the verse rules (says glow
the verse rules enforcer). Now you share with us your
fashion sense. RLR red hair, a white suit and to top it
off 6'3", who could have missed you? You must have had
your picture taken. Now I don't know how to
compartmentalize you. Oh yes I do, I'll just plop you
down in the eccentric slot. <broad
How I envy you. I'd love to dye my hair
bubble gum pink, or deep purple or blue, but I don't
think it'd go over well in the classroom. My students
have to endure enough change as immigrants in a new
country, they don't need to adjust to my whim for
rainbow coloured hair.
As I babble here, sans
fish <grin>, you might have noticed that I've not
commented on today's Tea Time and sonnet. Well that's
because my brain was deprived of oxygen today. While I
waited to Air Care my car in the hot sun, I inhaled
exhaust fumes for over an hour. Not good for the
cogitative system, nor my complexion.
JNW - Apr 29, 2002, 9:25
Damn you're good! I'll
have to think a bit about your last post. Preliminary
instincts, though, tell me names hold multiple
significances. Even in stories -- they work as currency
and placeholders for ideas. Think Hamlet -- just saying
his name brings certain ideas to mind (as well as
Olivier, yikes, as a student). Sure, they identify the
players, but who the players actually are is also
defined by names authors pick. Even us. Forensic poetry
says something -- private to you, public to us. (I'm
still guessing at private motives -- must read more
threads!) This means authors also define themselves by
how they name their characters, at least major players
in stories, even if the rest can go hang. And now this
instinct has spun completely awry and I'm completely
teased out of thought. Think I'll go get some cotton
candy for the brain in form of TV. I'll think more and
try again tomorrow. Have a good night!

Dear FP, dear friends

Good news: my hair is
just fine and my impecable (smile)sense of style was
unharmed by my week-end in Sin City.
The Gods must have got mad at me for surrendering to the
"dark side"; they infected me with a "nasty" cold. Oh
well... live and learn!
Thanks FP for your
"report" from the book fair. Sounds like you made the
right connections (smile). Hope to hear more about it.
See you later at TT (unless the sneezing and
caughing gets in the way!). <caugh, caugh, sneeze,
