                             Notes from the arena champ.

You're so impulsive, Heraclitus!  Rushing onto your fate and all that.  It seems so
unphilosophical, but what do I know?  They were right to keep you in the Infirmary
for a few days and just *force* you to slow down.  And I suppose they had to wait for
parts to replace that arm I damaged.  Other golems have mentioned that no matter what
part is needed, the Infirmary doesn't have it in stock.

Get well soon.

                                     Sweet Betsey

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in RIZTAB!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, HIGH JINKS had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by SWEET MAGIC!  Way to go SWEET MAGIC!  
MVP award for CARLOTTA?  SWEET MAGIC's proud of her after beating REPULSIVE ROGAN and 
getting 21 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  DEAPTH BOMB's match with PHILOLAUS 
cost him a loss of 13 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  SWEET BETSEY 
stopped HERACLITUS dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to 
his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Tiannary -- Picked your teeth with me, did you?  Well, okay, let's see to it that
doesn't happen again.  And none of your temptations, either. -- Marlow

Carlotta -- Never mind our B movie references.  We weren't really comparing you to an
off-shore island. -- Rogan

Democritus -- What is to be, we know not.  But I know I had it going on that time.
Feels good. -- Tiddles

Big Shrimp -- I just can't seem to get enough dipping sauce for a shrimp your size,
and without the sauce, you're just unmanageable. -- Tariliss
P.S.  In fact, you put me off seafood altogether.

Marlow -- Listen, you!  Do *not* put your arm around me without asking first or I
really *will* take it off at the elbow. -- Tiannary
P.S.  I won't ask you to shave, I know dwarves hate that, but wouldn't you at least
comb out your beard?  I could almost swear I saw a mouse in there.

Repulsive Rogan -- I kept trying to get away from you, but you were all over the
place.  Everywhere I turned, there was your repulsive face.  Gods!  Can you wonder
that your fights are short? -- Carlotta

Pythagoras -- Listen, I *studied* for this.  Angles, sides, hypopotenueses, the whole
three hundred sixty degrees, and it just did me no good at all.  I'm giving *up* on
geometry forever. -- Corianelle

Tiddles -- When they hit me, they're enemies. -- Carlotta

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
