ariel said...

damn. it made me cry.

Minka said...

ok, the second recording was lovely to listen,too... well done, weirsdo.

'male offspring of a dog of the female persuasion" was a brilliant ending'

Doug said...

Minka, very prompt, young lady.

Cheesemeister, thanks. I think the link is working now.

Ariel, her prophesying is perfected now.

Thanks, Minka. That's my kind of poetry.

once again, well done, Mrs. Weirsdo! what a fantastic and well-nuanced reading. *claps enthusiastically*

and once again, well done, Doug. this was a fantastic and well-directed episode. that Alice, choosing to follow her destiny, whether she thinks she intends to, or not. apparently, being an assassin is more difficult than one might imagine. (messy, too.) ; )

TLP said...

The Destinist destitutely deterged the desultory Oracle. And if you think that doesn't make sense, then you have some.

G said...

What a classical wonderful reading! Bravo Weirsdo, nicely done. And bravo to you too Doug for a wonderfully "executed" story. Could there be a twist in this ending? I guess we'll find out.

Nicely done you two.

Cheesemeister said...

Yes, that's better. Sounds like poor Alice is just a pawn of the Fates.

Cheesemeister said...

PANSI wants you to know that she doesn't care about these people and their silly problems, she has REAL problems. But she would like you to see this.

“Sonofabitch!” I LOVE that! xoxo

actonbell said...

Bravo, Weirsdo!
great story, Doug. Architects can go either way: hmm, maybe that explains organic architecture.

Quinten Tarantino said...

Best written episode yet.

Tom & Icy said...

Great job, Weirsdo!

Doug said...

Neva, my "direction" was understanding that Weirsdo owns Cassandra.

She definitely did, TLP.

Thanks, G. What's a twist?

Cheesie, A new aadventures of Pansi?!?!?! And just when I thought my heart had dried up.

Haha, Mireille. You conform to no stereotypes, that's true.

And interior design, probably, too, Actonbell.

Thanks Quentin and Icy.

weirsdo said...

Thanks to everyone, and especially Doug for another opportunity to explore my creepy inner prophetess.

PANSI!!!! said...

cooper said...

I will be back to this in the morning when I am more astute and can give it my full attention.

You should not complain about comments disappearing Dawg. I have had my trials here.

Nice job with the story and reading, once again.

"Her body slumped against Alice, soaking her tunic in blood."

Doug, you're scaring me!

goldennib said...

Lovely reading.

So, do I want to be an assassin or not?

pia said...

Wonderful reading. Doug I want to morph into you for the brilliant lines and sparkling comments

I'm having all kinds of Mac problems just when Apple couldn't care less about computers. I know this doesn't belong here but I really need to complain

Doug said...

Weirsdo, thank you. You make me sound bardish.

Pansi, the cocktails are on me.

We have our trials here below, Cooper.

Actonbell, you're taking your July luck to the slots?

Thanks, AP3. Rabbit Rabbit!

TLP, and also to you.

Sorry JD, it'll be funny again soon I hope.

Ne va, rabbit rabbit

Hey, Happy Canada Day, JJ!

Nessa, check with the family. I'm thinking so.

Thanks, Pia. Venting is always welcome here.

cooper said...

I'm sorry, it made me laugh.

weirsdo said...

Thanks AP3, Goldennib, and Pia.

Indeterminacy said...

No offense Doug, but that's the best reading I've heard in a long time, maybe ever. Mrs. Weirsdo should go into audio books.

A great story well read is a knock out punch.

Thanks, Indie.
