Doom Du Jour 
Narngi:"Ghirbis, Sythyry? We need a moment of your morning."
Ghirbis:(singing)"A moment, a foment, a ramping romping roment!"
Narngi:"We think we need another roommate."
Me:"What? Did Agrimony leave?"
Ghirbis:"Agrimony has dread, and Agrimony has bled -- No surprise that Agrimony fled!"
Narngi:"No, though maybe he will over another transaffectionate roommate."
Narngi:"We need to have Enziet live with us."
Anoof:"Just for two months or so."
Me:"But weren't you two the main forces keeping Enziet out of your upcoming marriage?"
Anoof:"With your kind and still-appreciated assistance, yes."
Me:"So ... wouldn't that make you the people least suited for housing Enziet?"
Anoof:"Exactly! I told you zie'd understand instantly, Narngi."
Narngi:"I claim affan in Comprehension of Zi Ri."
Narngi:"Since we're going to marry Enziet, we need to be loyal with her. That usually takes a few weeks of close contact, like living together."
I may be spending too much time with Cani. This almost makes sense.
Ghirbis:"Ah, the legendary Cani Loyalty Instinct, subject of many a song and story! Mostly miserable ones, of course."
Me:"She'll be living in your room? Is there space?"
Anoof:"It will be tight. Maybe we could abduct the Gallery of a Thousand Shining Alarming Geometrical Solids to keep the clothes, and our desk? We'll pay extra rent."
Me:"We'll still have the Arena of Massacres and Spectacles of Blood for a parlor ... I don't think you should pay extra rent. You'll be paying in misery, I think."
Ghirbis:An unmemorable yet loudly-sung assent.
Me:"I suppose this calls for some kind of congratulations?"
Anoof:"The kind that come with considerable brandy, I hope. I expect a rather miserable term."
Me:"Well, yes. Maybe she can join the Vheshrame Academy Traff Students Association."
Anoof:"Can non-students join?"
Me:"Not with that name."
Ghirbis:"VASTA is not a good name in any case. It sounds like a place from which to observe a huge amount of noodles -- a vista of vast pasta."[Literally: "It sounds like a whistle placed in a public square to assist with defecation." Ghirbis is being crude.]
Me:"We'll think of another. Maybe we'll hold a contest."
Anoof:"Thank you, Ghirbis, Sythyry. We'll go ask Agrimony and Dustweed and Tethezai... and thanks in advance for being sweet to Enziet when she's here."
Ghirbis:"Oh, dearie-dee. We will have to do that, won't we?"
Anoof:"If you possibly can. It's very important to us."
Me:"Havune's being bossy and domineering, now that he's got affan?"
Narngi:"Not at all. This was my idea. We haven't checked with him yet, though he'll surely agree."
Me:"Do you actually want to marry Enziet, after you lost that choof?"
Anoof:[wagging her tail 'til the wind of it knocked buildings over in Daukrhame]"No. But I'm going to, and so I want to want to. And I'm going to work as hard to want to as it takes."
How humble is that?
How martyry is that?
How self-serving is that?
How reasonable is that?
How awkward is that?
Would you do the same in her situation?
Could you possibly get in her situation?
