     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out LYRATILAN to 
see what's new.  MVP award for SHEZA BANSHEE?  GREAT UNKNOWN's proud of her after 
beating BLITZKRIEG and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  X. ROLPH 
TUPP got smashed by AMBITIOUS GUARD, and lost 11 points!  This Duelmaster is like 
something else!  GIGLIE stopped ERHLIE FAY dead in hers tracks!  Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  ERRATA was the most avoided team.  
Is a 169-179-9 record really that scary?  I don't know what GREAT UNKNOWN's been 
doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from ERRATA, that's fer 
sher.  Can BARHOPPERS' KEG STAND be more popular than me?  He was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All LYRATILAN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  LYRATILAN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

K Klonk -- Bad match up.  The GC must have it in for you. -- Suzie Banshee

Rolnando -- One hit and down you go.  Just the way I like them. -- Coral Eden

Iron Maiden -- Maybe you need a little more iron. -- Chavin de Huantar

Ekbard Ingorish -- I'm the low man on my team.  Mostly likely to go to the Dark
Arena.  My teammates all had easy fights this turn.  I get stuck with someone with a
little skill.  Now I'm 0 for 5 with fear on my face. -- Xocotl

Doberum Hannis -- Think of me.  You know I'd be with you if I could. -- Demsiado
Pesado

Ekbard Ingorish -- I wasn't screaming, I was singing.  Didn't you like my lullaby? --
Sheza Banshee

White Spider -- You again.  Doesn't this constant tuffet-duty get TO you sometimes?
Always "barking" up the wrong tuffet and getting smacked down for it.  Or in this
case, barking down the wrong hole, and getting smacked up for it?  Whatever.  Good
try, but not today. -- Erhlie Fay

Crown Royal -- (spitting and coughing)  Don't you have ANY blood in your veins?
Bleh!  That stuff is horrible.  It's enough to make anyone's eyes cross. -- X. Rolph
Tupp

Xocotl -- Great unknown, eh?  Well...inside that tin can, I guess you ARE.  Just
about ANYONE could be in there, if he or she wasn't too tall or, ah, in the case of a
"she," too, ah, you know.  Still, good try. -- Ekbard Ingorish
P.S.  My aim appears to be rotten.  Sorry about that, but I'm working on it.

Barthomas -- (rudely)  Well, excuse me!  I didn't know I needed a can opener and a
corkscrew for this!  Next time, I'll be better prepared. -- Trellin Xiss

Barthomas -- Ignore Trellin, she's just miffed because she lost.  She hates losing.
-- Jorja

Demsiado Pesado -- That name...there seems to me to be a flavor of...Noachian about
it.  Yes? -- Jorja

Demsiado Pesado -- Ignore her, I always do!  Good fight on your part, rotten on mine.
Care to console me over dinner? -- Doberum Hannis, ever hopeful

Padello, Toeless Peasant -- Ha!  Suffer. -- X. Rolph Tupp

Giglie -- I suppose you call that a significant win?  We have other words for it
amongst the standbys. -- Jeb Lewes, Veteran Mercenary

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
