And one more time, I
am drawning in the overwhelmingly mysterious wave of
insightful remarks around here. Could I be more clueless
about the author VR and FP were discussing?
And to demonstrate the relevancy of
some of my previous remarks on cultural differences, I
will dare to ask this: maybe, what was a sign of social
courtesy in old Japan may actually be "bragging"
in 21st Century Western societies (or, to put a marxist
twist on it <smile at my own silliness> an
"imperialistic tool to oppress the masses" --or
me?--...?). <smile> No sarcasm intended here.
Really. Thank you VR and FP for raising the bar.

For a minute I thought
you were going to come up with something like GD. Hmmmm,
I could probably live with that one too. I've been
called worse I'm sure.
About the quote thing. I
don't mind the quotes at all but it does seem like an
awful lot of work just to make a point. And it's way too
much work to make a point about a point. I like to think
of quotes as inspirational. If you can gain insight or
knowledge that is relevant to your own situation and
learn, then there is value. Most of what we talk about
is common sense, isn't it? Knowledge and wisdom are two

I've been reading
posts and discovering my name in reference to "blame."
But upon thought, I find myself not unwilling to accept
some share of this "blame." Some share <smile>. I
too have read that insightful book you mention Forensic
Poetry. Reviewing my posts, with said book in mind, I've
found interesting correlations and contradictions in
reference to my behavior. I wonder if this might have
something to do with an American gajin expat
repatriated? Some commentary on melding of cultures? Or
am I just bragging <g>? I never thought about that
book in terms of internet chat rooms, but now you've got

forensicpopouri - May 13, 2002, 3:43
Many years ago I
picked an insightful book off a library shelf . .
(the author's name nor the book will I
mention . . . for reasons that will
momentarily. <smile> But if you want a hint I will
something about a flower and a
weapon. <g> )
THE POINT of the
insightful passage which I will not reference (as I
not reference any passage in the future
<smile>) explained that
days . . . in old Japan it was considered bad
to quote something you'd read and tell
who had said it. BECAUSE those
who were well-read
would already know where the passage came from
. . AND to speak of the source of the quotation to
anyone who had not
read it . . . well, that would
simply be highlighting your knowledge in
unsocial way (i.e. bragging).
TO SAY . . . ideas were referenced without names
attached to them.
I now put on my kimono
. . . and ponder the void . . .
. . . and
a lunatic moderator on AOL who once began deleting
that contained quotes . . . because she had
no understanding of the
concept of fair
use. . . But then . . . neither does Hollywood.

are not VR's (or SL's) fault.

I've been wondering
all weekend why you were posting your design ideas here
instead of in the Project 1800 thread. I've also checked
over there quite often to see how things were
progressing. I've got my ways too.
I couldn't make
the special blend TT today and I was surprised to see
the extra sonnets yesterday. I thought you were taking
the weekend off. No rest for the wicked?
forensicpopouri - May 12, 2002, 6:21

off my computer (until midnight) . . . so that I can

VretilRaduriel - May 11, 2002, 5:07
I've always liked
Sundays for conversations in the afternoons. Such
Sundays always reside in my memories infused with an
afternoon slanting light and warmth just this side of
cool. Can't explain it -- I know many Sunday's are
dreary or cold, particularly in winter -- but they've
been melded in my mind with all the lazy ones spent with
friends prolonging weekend's end with talk. In other
words, Sundays appeal, though of course, this too is
just a thought on my part, just a rambling sort of
response by association <smile>. On other thoughts
(a different sort of association) -- how strange
yesterday's Tea Time appears to have been! Serendipitous
Occurences (what lovely words together -- just say them
out loud -- they're even fun in your mouth!) kept me
from reading the posts until a short while ago.
Commercials? Is the Oracle picking up wonky signals?
Have the Powers That Tea decided to subsidize? I'll
think about those products advertised. Perhaps they'll
make their way into my next sonnet. I'll do my "part."
<g> And last -- thanks again for more sonnets. I'm
not sure I've ever told you how much I enjoy them. They
are greatly appreciated -- on several levels.

The Gods are with me
today; the ACs are late...
So first, here is the
smile of the day for a truly inspiring sonnet:
As for Xander: well, I tend not to
take anti/pro decisions about the character on the show.
I am not--always<g>-- of the "judgy" kind. But of
course, I have had my share of wanting to kick him in
the "derriere" a few times, and not just lately.
I were to write a sonnet about him, I would go for
something around what Anya's remarks in Entropy. He
truly lives in a "little boy" world. His possessiveness
toward Buffy is also interesting, as well as his
recurrent hypocrisy (his fiance was a pretty creepy
demon too wasn't she? Why would redemption work for her,
but not for Spike?). And X made his share of mistakes of
course... All seasons have been full of his "oops"
moments (OMWF, anyone?). Another aspect of his
personality is very "GI Joe." He is always the one who
suggest to "kill first and then ask questions." His
world is very black and white, "demons bad/people good"
(again the "little boy" theme). How "American" of him
(<SL smiles as to what this remark will trigger
around here. So she'll say it--too late again?--:
sarcasm warning>). I'll stop here
VR: Could I have
that much influence on Mr. V? Hmmmmm.
As if I care . . .
forensicpopouri - May 10, 2002, 6:47

And one last thought
VretilRaduriel - May 10, 2002, 6:41
mysterious loss of name IS due to something magical
occuring. Perhaps he himself is becoming something new,
something full alchemized by the space of the lounge and
the terrace, and by the influence of one such as
Supernatural Lawyer. He has changed, I've noticed, and
I've heard love can do that to someone. And chips.
Forensic -- ask Spike -- he can tell us something I'm
sure. Of course, the real question is not where has the
name gone, but rather, what is he becoming? It's as open
a question as these new sonnets Forensic writes -- these
ones that deal with possibility rather than

While I might have
disagreed before now, as of late, I've found Xander to
be an irritating little git. One I'd just as soon send
packing, without warning him to not let the door smack
him on the a** on the way out. My vote may not count,
however, because I must, with great regret, report I
will be unable to attend tea-time today. "My heart
aches" and I long for the "warm beaker of South" your
company and Spike's Special Blend might provide, but
I'll check the boards later & do what I can to keep
