(from FemiNutsy)

04. Xena: "Thank you, o vulture, for bringing me this great dark mystery from the future -- Death Metal. How may I ever repay you for granting these great teachings?"

(from Eric Rountree)

Xena: But I'm getting jiggy! You're no fun anymore. Vulture: SKWAK!

(from Nell)

12. Xena (to the vulture): Look, I may be about to die soon, but I usually come back to life pretty soon afterwards, so I wouldn't bother hanging around.

Biography

Joxer-impaired Spice Marian Pappaceno
Writer
Marian Pappaceno, now a New Yorker after meeting her love on-line in 1992, was raised in the glitter of Las Vegas, which probably contributed to her sideways sense of humor. Always the tough gal, she was happy to play the role of the bad guy with the neighborhood kids, usually as a thief or alien-come-to-conquer-earth. An artist at heart, she draws constantly when not at her job in nuclear medicine. She shares her home with several animals, including a german shepherd who knows how to work the ice machine.
