I wrote this as stress relief. A very heated argument was occurring in my
"Pagan Realm e-group" , and I got tired of arguing and correcting people about
what I really said and didn't say... Any way, this helped me to get my sense of
humor back..

Oh, and by the way..
THIS IS A JOKE
PEOPLE!


Blessings!

HPS>>
Before we start our initiation ritual, I have an announcement.
Fluffy
Moon Ferret has totally burned out her hard drive and
probably won't be able
to get back on line for at least two weeks
EAST>> Darn! She was
going to teach us how to make cyber corn
dollies next week
:-(

business?

HPS>>Good, now do you have the
cord?
INITIATE>> Yes, I have an orange one I got on sale at the
fabric
store today, is that ok?
HP>>It will have to do. OK,
now, tie your hands behind your
back, then bring the cord up around your
neck...
INITIATE>>Ummm.... I can't do that by
myself..
HPS>>Do you have anyone there to help
you?
INITIATE>>Only my mom, but she would kill me if she
knew
what I was doing in here
HP>>OK, forget the cord. Do you
have the blindfold?
INITIATE>>Yes, I do
HPS>>OK,
put the blindfold on and don't peek while we cast the
circle. Give us about
four minutes

now, how will
I know when you are ready for me?
HP>>Do you
have an alarm clock?

Yes, but it's in my
room
HP>>
Can you go get it?

I'd have to put my clothes on-- my mom is
in the next
room

240

to hold your sword in the
same way

sword..

that the servers are down
HPS>>OK, you can
get them later. Now imagine that I am pushing
you from behind into the
circle
INITIATE>>from behind?
HPS>>Yes, kinda
like you are tilted, I am holding on to the cord.
Oh wait.. no cord.. ok,
just pretend I am pushing you into the
circle
INITIATE>>Ok
HPS>>Now we are going to go
around the circle three times.
INITIATE>>OK

~~(1
minute pause)~~

HPS>>
Now we're stopping in front of the altar
and I am holding
the
scourge

INITIATE>>
OK
HP>>You must
kneel at the altar while the High Priestess
scourges
you
INITIATE>>Do you want me to imagine that I am
kneeling in
front of the altar or do you really want me to kneel in front of
my
computer?
HP>>Can you kneel and still see the
screen?
HPS>>If he kneels he must also put his head down on the
floor
HP>>Well, I guess he can't kneel
then
HPS>>Yes, he can, I have an idea. Initiate--kneel and put
your head
to the floor and imagine that I am scourging
you
INITIATE>>OK
HPS>>I am now scourging
you

~~(2 minute pause)~~

HPS>>
Initiate you must now
scourge me twice as many times

that you are scourging the High Priestess
WEST>>I need to go--
the baby woke up and needs to be fed
HP>>Can you feed him at the
computer?

can you cut
me a door?

crying

The initiate has to scourge me. I am going to kneel
down
here now, and imagine that he is plying the
scourge
INITIATE>>Ok, I am imagining that I am scourging the
High Priestess

~~( 2 minute pause)~~

INITIATE>>
I am
done
HP>>Priestess?

~~(1 minute
pause)~~

HPS>>
I need to go right now
HP>>Why?
We are not finished here
HPS>>I banged my head on the desk when
I got up-- hard-- I am
bleeding all over my computer. I need to go to the ER
for stitches

**HPS has left the chatroom**

HP>>
OK,
we'll make this a healing circle instead
INITIATE>>I have to go
too, my mom is in the hallway screaming
and wants to know what I am
doing

**INITIATE has left the chatroom**
