                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I was right.  The SPCA got after me for that poor dog.  They sent the
Venomous Concubine, and SHE had all sorts of HORRIBLE stuff she tried to push into my
mouth.  Ugh.  At least someone ELSE has to be Favorite this week.  That's one job off
my hands.

                                   Fenster Golly

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for JIMI APPENDIX, who pummelled 
ELVIRA FISH, to pocket 20 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, TEENIE 
WHOPPER was winsome, after beating DEBRA ELSITH and seeing her lose 12 points.  
FENSTER GOLLY successfully staved off a grab for the roses by GABOGOOL of STORMY'S 
TROOPERS I.  Does ALJAFIR have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who's the 
team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR 
stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
JIMI APPENDIX of BODY OF MUSIC sends ELVIRA FISH of MIDDLE WAY goes to the Weary 
Warrior's Retirement Home.  ALJAFIR has no place for weaklings!  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ALJAFIR is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ALJAFIR?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
