DUW: The CAP: (Part something or other) The Big Meeting
The BIG Meeting...
It was Chancellor Omarsnakes turn to chair the regular weekly Deb U Council Meeting.
He smiled benevolently at the women surrounding him and rapped the ceremonial gavel on a
polished wooden block. His CAs, all attired in their harem outfits, clustered around him
and sighed over the manly manner in which he called the meeting to order.
Chancellor Astraea called the roll and noted that LdyPegasus was absent. Calee looked a
little embarrassed as she shrugged and said, Sorry, I did try to find her but I
think she and the rest of her CAs have gone on an extended vacation.
Would you please read the minutes of last weeks meeting, Chancellor
Astraea? Chancellor Omar intoned importantly.
Theres not much to read, Asty replied with a shrug. We need more
money! Several ideas were suggested: 1. We raise tuition. 2. We auction off another date
with Hercules. 3. We raise tuition, again.
Thank you, Chancellor. Are their any additions or corrections to the minutes? If not
they will stand approved as read. Yes, Bt. Did you have an addition or correction?
Not exactly, Chancellor but when we come to new business we CAs believe weve
found a new and different source of funds which well might improve our cash flow
Indeed, how very industrious of all of you. Omar replied, while looking at his
CAs and wondering why his adoring slave girls had failed to mention this new source of
income to him. Moving along then, He continued, Is there any old
Yes, Nanaea? Incidentally, it is nice to see you out and about again. And Omar
favored the chancellor with a snaky grin and eyebrow wiggle.
Stow it, snaky, Nan shot back at him. Thats not gonna get you into
my vault. Which, by the way, is at an all time empty level. What are we going to do about
Aaaahem. Bt cleared her throat.
All right, so much for Robertus Rules! Omar threw his hands up in the
air signaling surrender. Women can be sooo difficult in a business situation,
I always thought that was RhodesRules. Kel giggled and punched Chancellor
Astraea in the arm.
So, theres no old business and no unfinished business so whats this new
business of yours, Bt? Omar said with a look of pure defeat on his face.
This. Bt said, as she placed the ornate scroll invitation on the council table
and with a flourish sent it spinning down the table to the chairmans seat.
Hmm, Omar said reading the invitation. Very interesting, Bt. What do you
know about these grants they are talking about.
Ive done a little research on it, chancellor, and the gist of it is that the
government, as well as several private organizations have all this money laying around
just waiting for someone to sign up and claim it. All they have to do is write a grant
request and say what they want the money for and it just comes pouring in.
Pouring? Nan said waking up a little from her Double-Chocolate-Cherry Chewie
Pouring! Bt emphasized. The institution of learning that writes the best
proposal is the one that gets the money. Its sort of like a contest. Thats
what this conference is all about. They guarantee that they can teach anyone to write a
winning proposal. Thats why we, the CAs, think you should send us to this
conference. Bt sat down then and waited for the discussion to start.
And it didnt take long for it to start............
Hmm, you did said this conference is in Lost Wages, didnt you, Bt? Hebea
questioned as she furrowed her brow and assumed an expression of deep thought.
That is correct, Chancellor. Bt replied, with an innocent look.
Aha! she thought, I knew I could count on Hebes to take the bait.
Im not sure it would be advisable, in that case, to send young inexperienced
girls to a place like that. Hebea said, almost choking on her descriptive words.
I really think it would be advisable for a chancellor to go, instead. Since Im
retired and have few duties, I would be the logical one to go.
Of course, Bt agreed and then hurried on with the next part, But since
this is a series of classes which are presented at the same time, several people will need
to attend. No one, not even a goddess, can be two places at once and we really need all
the information they offer in order to be sure we get as much money as possible.
Astraea had been uncharacteristically quite during the exchange between Hebea and Bt.
Shed been thinking over the information she learned from Antares earlier. Hades, who
was looking for grant money for re-education and rehabilitation, would be in Lost Wages at
this very same conference. It seemed that while Tartarus was full to over flowing with
malefactors, the Elysian Fields were getting over grown with weeds since there were so few
good people to send there. Hades reasoned that a little post mortem re-education might
even up the population in both places. Well, if Hades was going to the conference then
Asty intended to be there too! Casually she said, My assistants can handle
anything necessary for a few days so Ill just go along with Hebea. Between the two
of us we should be able to cover the classes. And have plenty of time leftover for
play. she added under her breath.
That would certainly be a help, Chancellor. Bt replied, But, I believe
the two of would have a difficult time covering all the classes even if you attended them
night and day. Youve both been working so hard lately you really deserve some time
off. Lost Wages is a lovely city with many cultural events going on. You should take
advantage of that while you are there.
Oh yes, and poor Omar needs to go too! He is so overworked and stressed .
Birdly chimed in as she massaged the chancellors shoulders.
Oh Bird is right! Alt Ladybug said as she ran a bare foot seductively up and
down Omars leg.
Cultural events? Omar questioned, as he regretfully brought himself back to
the business at hand rather than continuing to dwell on the ministrations of his faithful
Yes exhibits, modern art, musical performances, dance recitals that sort of thing,
Chancellor. Bt replied.
That could be an advantage to the school, having its chancellors up on all the
latest cultural trends, Omar said with a very serious face. I believe I should
also attend this conference. If we split the classes three ways, well all have free
time to attend the other events.
Oh no you dont, Snaky! Nan exploded. The gods only know when Peg
will be back and youre not going to take off and leave me here alone to deal with
all those noisy, blue students out there.
Chancellor Nanaea, Bt said with all the heat in her voice she could manage,
You cant leave US here to manage things without at least one chancellor on
campus. The students wouldnt stand for not having someone officially in
Thats easy, Asty replied while mentally packing her bags.
Well just draw up a document putting the CAs in charge while we are gone. If
anyone questions your authority just show it to them and threaten them with a week in
Sals Detox. Jackie will be glad to take care of writing the paper, Im
Of course, Chancellor. Jackie replied as neutrally as possible.
If there is no more business, I declare the meeting adjourned. Chancellor Omar
said and tapped the gavel on the table to make it official.
Each CA in the room did a fist pumping YES! Of course, it was all internal. Letting the
chancellors know, at this point in time, that they had been outsmarted could well prove to
The Plan was working perfectly.
