Tafuri deathdate ?
Tafuri is "dying" for an invitation to any of the 2005 events of the Horace Trumbauer Architecture Fan Club Convention, but John the Baptist Piranesi continually insists that Otto and Maria not invite him.
"Then again, if you do invite that cobweb-head, I could trick him into one of my prisons."
"Why don't you just design a new sarcophagus for him?"
"Ha! As usual Maria, you're brilliant!"
"You can say that again. Oh, and by the way, are you coming to our next dinner party? Isma'il (Raji al-Faruqi) and Lois (Lamya al-Faruqi) are a 'for sure' and Lois is bringing some of her famous saffron rice."
"You're funny too Otto. You know I never miss an opportunity to dine with the last Palestinian Governor of Galilee. Besides, I'm bringing Melania the Older and the Younger--they gave it all up for Galilee too."
"Good. You'll be enjoying saffron rice, and Tafuri will be eating his heart out.]
Julian, James and John are busy, busy, busy. Ben's given his blessing, but "Jock Strap" Gréber thinks it a bit rash and itchy for them not to be playing with him too. "It is after all my original design that they are interpolating!"
"Is it true that Ottositions and Ottober magazines are secretly being worked on?"
