Just another family get-together...

Cool puzzle of the day:
Romeo and Juliet lived happily in the old manor house. They kept to themselves and had no enemies as far as anyone knew. One day, a hysterical maid ran to tell the butler that she had found them both dead on the living room floor. The butler went with the maid to the living room, and there, as the maid had said, the bodies of the two were lying motionles on the floor. There was no sign of violence, and the bodies were unmarked. There was no evidenc of forced entry, and nothing untoward except for some broken glass on the floor. The butler ruled out suicide, as they weren't the type. Poison was also out of the question as he had prepared and served the food himself. On examination of the bodies, he could find no evidence as to the cause of death, but he did notice that the carpet on which they wer lying on was wet.
How did they die, and who killed them?

Seeing that it's Thanksgiving and all that, I think I'll jump on the bandwagon and mention some things I'm thankful for.
My Fiends. Each and every single one of you.You guys have no idea how much you mean to me. Couldn't live without you, at least not without committing homicide.
My roomates. You guys tolerate me at my worst moments, and that's saying something.
All of my wonderful Ficcies, beta-readers and readees. Tolerating my insane obsession for star Wars may qualify as cruel and unusual punishment, but you do it anyways.
My family. Not that I like you all that much, but you have convinced ne beyond all doubt to never, ever, ever have children.

Quote of the day: "After I die, I shall return to earth as the doorkeeper of a bordello and I won't let a one of you in." Arturo Toscanini to his orchestra after a rehearsal.

Saw Harry Potter today with Mom. We were supposed to go to the earlier show, but it sold out while we were in line. So we got tickets for the next show an hour later and wandered over to Esoteric for a while. The movie was awesome. I was surprised at how dark it was for a children's movie. But the book is that way too. The music was wonderful. I do so love John Williams. The film was a lot more adult than I had thought. At the end, Harry goes off to fight the bad guy, and he's actually bleeding. In the next scene, he's still in bandages. Unusual for such realitly for a children's film. Very good, and there was a LOTR preview in the beginning. Another movie I want to see, if only for the chance to see Patrick Stewart with hair. Lots of it. Gota go wash dishes now, see you later.

Answer:

The butler concluded that the maid was responsible for the deaths fo Romeo and Juliet. There was no one else in the house and the bowl couldn't have fallen over by itself. The maid was immediately for being so areless and for lyong about the accidental death of the two goldfish. They were both beloed family pets.

You know, Patrick Stuart doesn't play Gandalf in the LOTR movie... I thought that too. But you know who that is? The guy who played Magnito in the X-Men movie! ;)
