                             Notes from the arena champ.

     At least I beat this standby.  It still seems an unreasonable way to have and to
hold the title, but there it is, no one else wants it!  What could I do?  The Veteran
Mercenary wouldn't have been allowed to be Duel2Dude, even if he'd won.  And I didn't
want a repeat of LAST time's debacle.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CALEAM games.  UN-SEAMSTRESS caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested VISITING ORC and was awarded 9 
points in recognition.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, BUT 
BOUNCER is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  Heed 
this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city 
shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city CALEAM.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in CALEAM as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

Noble Assassin?  I've said it before (probably) and am sure to say it again in 
similar circumstance:  It is to laugh!  I may be Rirorni, but I'm not chaotic enough
to consider assassination a noble occupation.  Sue me. -- Korbel

Delicious -- Amazing, you aren't a Hairy one.  What a pleasure to make your
acquaintance, my dear. -- Un-Seamstress
P.S.  You shouldn't wear silk stockings into the arena.  It's true, they LOOK good,
but they always snag, and after that, even with the most CAREFUL repair, they just
don't look the same.
P.P.S.  And if a young man gets close enough to tell the difference, he WON'T CARE.

On Her Back -- I do so envy you that LONG beautiful hair!  Nobody lets ME wear it
that way.  "No, Clemmie," they say, "you CANNOT wear your hair long, it will be too
much of a nuisance.  It will require too much care.  You can't do it!"  And then they
come after me with the scissors. -- Clemmie

My Gf Sheds -- I don't know why you complain.  If she sheds heavily enough, you can
gather it up and sell it to the wig-makers.  After all, why not?  It isn't like she's
USING it anymore. -- Golden One

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
