                             Notes from the arena champ.

Oh, Candy Cane, you little sweet thing, where did you go?  I knew I wanted to lick
you and take the title, but it would have been much more fun had you actually been
present!  But a throne it is, all the same, and I'll take it!  Took it, actually, as
I am now in possession of it.

There isn't a lot to speak of at the moment, just time to celebrate with the local
ladies.  And of such things, a gentleman does not speak.  He just acts!

So lets break out some smash and celebrate this title!

-- Baldassare, Duelmaster of Bonsur

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in BONSUR!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 3-0-0.  Keep it up, CHURCH LADIES!  MVP 
award for JUMPIN JEHOSAPHAT?  AMEN!'s proud of him after beating LITTLE VENUS and 
getting 20 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SISTER SINISTER's match with 
SALTILLA cost her a loss of 11 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most 
popular guy in all BONSUR.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) 
Like, CANDY CANE must be pretty gutsy!  She challenged the Duelmaster from SENTINELS. 
Does this gal have a death wish or what!  Was that a tear I saw in CANDY CANE's eye, 
as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't BALDASSARE fit to be tied!  Who was the 
wiseguy that said BONSUR's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Swinging Aardvark? 
Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  SENTINELS was the most avoided team.  Is a 354-234-20 record really 
that scary?  I don't know what CHURCH LADIES' been doing.  They certainly haven't 
been accepting many fights from SENTINELS, that's fer sher.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  PALMETTA PATTY bloodfeuded (is that a 
word?) BLUEBURN for revenge over some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really worth it?  
Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Days of Old -- You're not getting tired of poor old Chaotic Death are you?  Bring him
back!

Patty -- We just keep meeting like this!  And you are right about one thing, at
least, I do need a mug of smash!  Not to get rid of the Grim thing, that is just a
name to make me more popular (A waste of time while you're here anyway), but just
because the company is so beautiful!  Shall we dance again? -- Kronos

Queenie -- Hmmm... this isn't looking good.  Or more accurately, I don't look so good
at this point.  Now who can I defeat? -- Blago

Haymaker -- Maybe 5 more hits and you had me.  Maybe... -- Preacher's Wife

Blago -- Don't feel sorry for me.  We all know who wears the chain leggings in the
family. -- Preacher's Wife

Saltilla -- Glad to see you had time for me, however.  Did you enjoy my sermon,
child? -- Preacher

Kronos Grimholt -- You need to lighten up.  Sure, time flies, but while it's doing
that, people can have fun.  You need smash.  A lot of smash. -- Palmetta Patty

The Preacher -- Not a type I care to associate with. -- Saltilla
P.S.  Too busy with the hands.

Sister Sinister -- You definitely are!  As left handed as... um, as anybody.
Leftier! -- Little Venus
P.S.  But you should leave off practicing that sinister squint.  It isn't becoming,
and what if your face froze that way?

Jumpin Jehosaphat -- It made me dizzy watching you jump around.  That's why I fell
down. -- Deanna Delite

Blago the Axe -- Why does the Commission DO that?  You're six foot two and they call
you a dwarf?  What was it this time, did you need a shave when you walked in to sign
up? -- Queenie

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
