                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  BLOOD SUCKERS had cause to celebrate, after 
MOSQUITO got 19 points by beating GIDGET IMER.  A certain someone should cut down on 
the drinking and practice more, after losing 13 points to MOSQUITO.  (Discrete 
enough, GIDGET IMER?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
IRVINA KORL, of THE MIDDLE WAY 5, who despite a 12-12-0 couldn't overcome KALTOS' 
Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging 
dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in BLOOD 
SUCKERS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a pup 
with its tail between its legs, CASSEY'S CREW scurried away from BLOOD SUCKERS.  Oh, 
the shame!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid KALTOS farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Kelly -- Do you do office work?  Typing, filing, that sort of thing.  We could use
someone to get our files under control. -- Irvina Korl, not a secretary

Ashley -- Quite a pretty little thing, aren't you?  *I* won't ask you to do the
filing.  You can just sit there and be decorative. -- Pendru Rost

Mother-in-Law -- Really, I think you ought to cook this family meal yourself.  I
couldn't possibly do it as well. -- Lulia Nim

Mosquito -- Getting too cold for you now, I hope? -- Leora Noeval

And an Embezzling Scribe who has no idea how to hide is defalcations. -- Gidget Imer
P.S.  Of course I know words like "defalcation."  We blondes have to keep our eye on
the money, even when we're blonde by request.
