As long as they're trained not to run up my leg.

the French can fight? really? all the Frenchmen i've ever known have been such terribly delicate little things. they make the loveliest dresses, but are fairly useless in a brawl. and such lightweights in the pub!

good sir, you need to spend more time at the docks!

Agamemnon : Possibly, or the sacrifice of your daughter to appease the gods. Then there's the part where you kidnapped Cassandra, ill-fated beauty that she was. Take your pick.

wait, wait, wait.

do not make the mistake that I and the Agamemnon of myth are one and the same.

I have sacrificed nobody, nor kidnapped anybody.

Damn. The conversation could've gotten so interesting....but it's good that you haven't sacrificed or kidnapped anyone for your concubine.

This place is much improved, with all these ladies here making coffee. Wink  I'll have a cup.

Mice?  Wish I could help you.  I'm something of an exterminator, but as you know mice are not my specialty.  Here's some garlic if you think that might help.

French kickboxing?  I'll admit it's a surprise to hear those two words in the same breath, but then again, the Honest Realtors' Association I encountered was a surprise too!  Every year or so I make sure to send sympathy cards to both of its members.  Perhaps French kickboxers are in need of the same attention?

point of fact - i'm not a sir. granted, i may drink and swear and brawl with the best, but by all accounts i am very much a lady. you're more than welcome to test the theory, but best advised that there are consequences with any test.

In all reality, "steampunk" is anachronistic, innit? Otherwise it's just Victorian dress-up.

chain smokin', sleep needin', apparel designin', mohawk havin', tea drinkin', steady cursin', boy charmin', card readin' rabble-rouser and amusement park cleverly disguised as a woman

Judging by the hour, I'm a bit late, good thing I take my coffee black.

Good thing also I don't do decaf, even this late...my guess is...*roots around behind bar*...yep, such vile materials were removed during the last club-wide exorcism.

And yes, at least one of the two "Honest" Realtors I have met was in a place called Atlantis.  Though it wasn't an island...more a club sort of place...*ahem*...perhaps the less said about that the better.

My researches indicate that the Honest Realtor trait is a rare combination of exceedingly recessive genes, from a relatively recent mutation at that.  It is interesting to note that both of these specimens emerged from the Realtor factory during or not long after the age of widespread atomic weapons testing.  In both cases, they were shunned and driven from the Realtor community.  I am not at liberty to divulge their present location.  I believe they are practicing their foul art in as much secret as is possible given the nature of the work; some sort of religious cultism, open only to Realtors (and actually to only those two) causes them to believe they can change the manner in which it is practiced.  Such rare specimens need our support.

decaf?!?! good sir, i asked for profanity not sacrilege!

as to Atlantis, i may have been but it is all a bit of a blur. i remember skirts gathered and bustled for climbing onto tables and a lot of sweating, but that can be said about many of my memories - at least that's how the good ones begin. come to think of it, perhaps that was Eden, or Purgatory, or Gomorrah...? the years tend to run the names together, you know. perhaps tomorrow i can be persuaded to regale some of my adventures...

If any of them started that way and involved Realtors I'm not sure I want to hear about it...

Otherwise, do tell!  Grin

i make no promise of involvement of realtors. truth be known, i cannot say or certain whether you yourself may have been present for exploits. all i can say is this - if you weren't, you missed one hell of a good time  Wink

You mean...you don't...check...before...??!

In any event, I've actually pointed out a way one can usually tell a Realtor, if one has access to microwave, infrared, or X-ray imaging, or...if...

I think I'd better focus on my coffee, right now.  Shocked

oh golly lolly, i believe that boyhood daydreams have gotten the better of you...

a libertine, performer, and thrill-seeker i may be but i assure you i have standards! i do not make a habit of fraternising with realtors of any sort - honest or otherwise - but there may always be the attendee who does not make his...occupation...known beforehand, or at least not to one such as myself...

and with that, this lady is off in search of a warm bath and a cool bed. adieu.

*stumbling in sleepily from the Tea Room* *pours a bucket of water on helios* That should do it. I could really go with a stiff drink, whatever that qualifies as. *yawn*
