                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, Cornbread Stuffin!  I really like that stuff--the cornbread part, anyway.
Forget the bird.  I could eat it regularly.  And will.  There is nothing to fear in
cornbread stuffing.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ALJAFIR.  What was the name of that team 
who got 4-0-0 this turn for a total 41-32-2 you ask?  (Sure)  ZOMBIE SQUAD 2's their 
name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for CORNBREAD STUFFING?  ALMOST 
THANKSGIVING's proud of her after beating BELLONA CHIST and getting 27 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  BELLONA CHIST got smashed by CORNBREAD STUFFING, and lost 
13 points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh 
well, welcome REAPER.  Aren't ZOMBIE SQUAD 2 proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  Like, is YOU SCREAM popular, or 
what?  She was challenged the most in all of ALJAFIR!  She's got a 0-11-0, is that 
good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ALJAFIR ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

spear fodder in some third-rate Chaos Gate

Green Beans -- Cheese makes most things edible. -- Bellona Chist
