                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in RODEKI!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, COLOR ME SUAVE, but 
ELEMENTS OF ZEN was just too good to be stopped.  What was the name of that team who 
got 5-0-0 this turn for a total 36-32-4 you ask?  (Sure)  BEASTIAL LEGION's their 
name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for JADE TIGER?  ELEMENTS OF ZEN's proud 
of her after beating WINKY DINK and getting 24 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  WINKY DINK got smashed by JADE TIGER, and lost 18 points!  Don't you think 
the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think DELAWARE RUN should let ROCKSOCK be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a 
real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Moist Towelette -- I was going to give you the cold shoulder and the faint curl of
the lip, but there were these barbecued ribs, and my fingers were such a mess, and
there you WERE, so.... -- Rita Pye
P.S.  Thanks.  I'm going to devote my retirement to making better and messier
barbecue.

Delaware Run -- (snicker)  I like to watch other people running hard.  Keep it up. --
Rackaboy
P.S.  I, on the contrary, am not going to run ANYWHERE.

Quick Dead Hammer -- Not quick enough, not dead enough.  Argh.  Much too hammer
enough. -- Rocksock

Killer Kabuki -- Maybe so, but if you keep using that lead-based white face paint,
you're going to be a Killed Kabuik. -- Christellina

Jade Tiger -- It is true that jade is a tough stone, but any stone can be broken. --
Celie Shatterstone

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
