                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This should be my last turn until the Spring Mail-In.  Probably a good thing,
because that Darth Vadar guy is weirding me out with his heavy breathing thing.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JURINE needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, STAR WARS, 
but SHEWISH BUFFET was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for SYBO?  TREXTRAS' 
proud of her after beating FIFINE GILLY and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  FIFINE GILLY got smashed by SYBO, and lost 12 points!  This Duelmaster 
is like something else!  GRAHAM CRACKER stopped DARTH VADAR dead in his tracks!  Is 
the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All JURINE ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
