I enjoyed this episode so much. Good when your sense of humour comes through like this, and nice mess in the history, too. An extra laughter at "“Dear mother, the marriage is to Shahryar so why should WE fight?”.

Oh and whoever was trying to commit suicide in the background, I hope they are better!

gwknkn - dawgs are keen on my skunk

Turning the dressing question into a foreign affairs question was so clever. I wouldn't like to be in the place of China...

Ariel, I'm glad you enjoyed the episode. Sometimes their funner to write when there's no real story. As to the background noise, I never listen to my own recordings but before I read, I had a can of spaghettios which I ate in two bowls so both dogs could clean a dish. The background sound I was aware of was Willie pushing his bowl around on my tile floor.

I would rather be China than Rome. Mrs. Shahrazade seems like someone who could do some damage.

I'm no diviner, but I think there might be an omen in Bossy and the hens that Shahryar should heed. . . .

I like Leili a lot, and can hardly wait to see how she'll teach the emperor to reconsider The Way, my thought just was, it's gonna be more than frightening to the more thousands years' empire to see those wedding costumes.

Your dogs sound like two perfect wives, wow!

Hobbes, isn't every bear a diviner?

Ariel, Leili's kind of the hero, isn't she? The dogs and I live in a convent dedicated to Our Lady of The Snack.
