''Bob'': "A fig! 'Tis in ourselves that we are thus or thus. Our bodies are our gardens, to the which our wills are gardeners."
DJTweeny: something like that, cease
EWeston: During a vacation to Connecticut, yes

DJTweeny: cool :)
Elayne: Wow, Cat. Good luck iwth that!
Cease: With some adventures not revealed in said blog.

DJTweeny: sounds like fun
Elayne: Really, *yawn*
EWeston: Eat or be Eaten varies that a bit. Pete was after a romantic interest, but sex was never implied

Cease: How about Power, El?

''Bob'': Shouldn't it be "anythynge thou wantest", tho?
Beet: that was good
EWeston: You is closer emotionally donno if it matters
