Doom Du Jour [4261]

Narngi:"Ghirbis, Sythyry? We need a moment of your morning."

Ghirbis:(singing)"A moment, a foment, a ramping romping roment!"

Me:"Of course!"

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."

Me:"Another...?"

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."

Me:"The what?"

Narngi:"I claim affan in Comprehension of Zi Ri."

Me:"Oh, dearie."

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."
