I actually posted in
the more rowdy atmosphere of the Bronze at large.
Sonnets of course -- a sort of ad for tea time.

I don't know what else
I can add to both of your insightful posts. Just this:
there is this myth going around on that us "independent
modern women" hate or despise men in some way ("Sex
& the City"-syndrom, much?). I am personally
surrounded with sweet, reliable, responsible and smart
males. And even if it's not PC to admit it, I often go
to them for support and advice. My girlfriends are a
different kind sanctuary, more familiar. But I guess I
need the diversity. Similarly (and to stay slightly
on-topic <smile>) being challenged by a man is so
much more interesting, less predictable because, well,
our "brains" do work differently. Learn, learn, learn...
Did I make my point yet? <smile>
all: I am having a BAD day, not made any easier by
yesterday's episode (prunehilda, I swear I won't talk
anymore about it!). I don't even know if I'll make Tea
Time today. (note to self: research the penalties for
murdering and/or torturing managing partner and make
usual cost/benefit analysis). <no
Currently, I'm trapped

In one of the lower
circles of hell -- not quite the lake of ice, but close
enough. Paying penance, no doubt, for various vices in
my life by being forced to read huge quantities of
drivel, flawed logic, and general bulls..t that's been
presented to me in hopes I'll think it smells like
roses. Can you tell I'm in a foul mood? Regardless, I
agree prunehilda -- I don't think all men suck -- and some are
quite nice. And while Marti N. may be determined to
shape the reality of some characters of the show -- have
you noticed how bronzers aren't quite willing to buy it?
I'm fascinated. The sideshow is captivating. (Course, I
have no time to 'watch' today, except for furtive little
peeks. On a brighter note, I stumbled across a quote
last night that set me smiling, much to the confusion of
my company. Talk about prophetic -- Forensic, I think

Not all men suck!
I happen to like men. Now, I know that
misanthropy is currently in vogue and I worry about the
coming backlash but I find that if I shut up long enough
I can learn alot from men. Their(mens) experience is
different than ours(womens) but it is still
I think you were right when you said Marti

current scholarship focuses on [Emily] Dickinson's
her choice of writing
over the logocentrism of speech, I am
going to argue that Dickinson also valued the
presence of voice in text,
exploring the relative powers of oral and
discourse. Indeed, I believe that
conflating the intimate qualities of
and the distance and silence
of writing was central to Dickinson's
literary project, a project that is realized
in her quentessentially
The rhetorical intent I
believe Dickinson's textual voice
-- engaing the reader in dialogue
-- permeates Dickinson's poems as much
her letters. The poems and the letters
share stylistic similarities, and
frequently mailed poems . . . as
. . . I will discuss how the
oral and textual traits of her letters
create a dialogic voice --
at once enigmatic, perpetual flux, and
in the person, the body, the concrete
moment in time.
Because of these combined
discourse qualities, I have found it useful in
section to compare Dickinson's voice with
our contemporary phenomenon
mail: speech-like in its immediacy, informality,
answerability, YET riddled with the open,
ephemeral qualities of

But last night on
television we heard on <I>BUFFY</I> .
"Men suck." . . . AND . . . " Lies
flying around like little monkeys" AND
Buffy asks: "What have you got for me that doesn't
AND we saw . . . for the very first time

then Buffy wouldn't have
been hurt enough for Spike
to almost rape her . . . so that Buffy could cry
whimper so pitifully for a moment or two before kicking
Spike so easily
across the room . . .
see at the end of the episode why if slayer foes ever
up a gun (oh yeah, like Darla
and her two pistols . . . and Spike
with a bloody
shotgun) . . . that all that kickboxing and pointy
wouldn't leave the kicker-poker walking
around very long.

late today. Sonnets are being coded into html at this

that only made
sense after he went to the movies and saw what he

Get over it. <g>) . . .

9 TEA LEAVES . . . VERSIFY A

in a pointless and stupid way . . .
except that it
implies that dreams can be prophetic.
WHO GETS THE 9 TEA LEAVES? Post
your movie synopsis during Tea Time
Thursday. ON FRIDAY . . . there will be a
