@BEllona and Jmody,
And what am I to make of my most trusted, most heavily armored warriors discussing publicly such treasonous acts? You dare to hold the very life of your Queen in such little regard, when it is that very life that you are sworn to protect with your own?
YOUR Queen who loves you so much as to make you her own family? Thou wouldst openly discuss who might kill her with the most accurate speed and weaponry?
Et tu Brute, Bellona?
You begin with offering to give your life to defend your Queen. But while your Queen is absent for even a moment, are you are so easily swayed by the masses? When it is those masses that it is your job to control? And, Bellona, you are in NO way small. Was it not YOU who was the first to recognize the quote by the poet "Dylan Thomas"? And you can hold your own with the best of them IF it is decided that you will be allowed to keep your head. It is time to practice those newly polished sucking up skills. But, the Queen is inclined to believe that you were unduly influenced by outside factors. And that your heart remains pure.
Et tu, Jmody?
I have heaped praise upon your head. Might it just have well have been coals? Bellona has pledged her life for her Queen and proven herself in battle on numerous occasions. Methinks that she was unduly influenced by......... do I dare even whisper the word?
And what proof can you offer your Queen that she might again rest her head upon a pillow with the peaceful slumber of one who has the protection of the worlds finest warrior? What assurance that your Queen may emerge from her secret abode with no treasonous acts being contemplated upon her? And, Knight of Dreams, I shutter to utter "Let them eat cake" ( It is YOUR mission, Knight Jmody, to explain this one, both "Et tu, Brute" AND "Let them eat cake" Who said each, what they mean, and why. Complete with dates) Then you will have proven your courage to your Queen and will be forgiven this indiscretion. And the laurel wreath shall rest upon your fair brow once more.
(And don't fret anyone. I have ideas about some fun things we can also do for entertainment along with these royal history lessons I happen to be into right now.)
Also, sorry I haven't been cranking out much work lately. I've been a little sidetracked with RL. Mostly with my own health issues. Doctor and dental appoitments. And going through a difficult time with my heath situation. As some of you may know . I hope to start doing better, we'll just have to stick around and see what happens. Which reminds me. Around Halloween, I left a message on my answering machine that said just that,
"Hello, Please leave a message and we'll see what happens...." then I'd pick up the phone and say BOO......
