67 days until spring. I have updated my Wing Warmers design to be lighter and warmer. Unfortunately, they still interfere with flying, but I don't think that can be avoided. 3.1, or "Ibiza" as I'm calling it, releases more quickly if you need to suddenly take off, though.

X-Mas Eve

For those of you sticking around the mansion this year, Harry just informed me that the Hideaway is throwing a Christmas bash on Christmas Eve. Should be mostly the regulars. I don't know what makes it especially Christmas-y... maybe he'll replace the swizzle sticks with candy canes or something. But regardless. he plans to kick it off about eight if anyone else is interested.

Pumpkins

I apparently showered with a pumpkin for five minutes before I noticed it. This holiday is getting weirder.

Anyhow, if you don't know what to do with the pumpkins infesting your leaving space, there's a big wooden crate in the grounds truck in the garage that you can dump them into. I got off the phone with Clara's Bakery in Salem Center and Xavier's is officially sponsoring providing dessert via pumpkin pies to the local shelters and soup kitchens in the area. I'll drive them over after work tomorrow, so you have until then.

We'll be starting Friday, so if you'd want to join us, last chance to sign up! We have six people so far.

I'm also looking if there is a chance for you to take to take the Certified First Responder exam, so let me know if you are interested in this.

Hi everyone,

Next week Ms. Ferguson and I will start teaching an advanced first aid course. It's not just for Gen X members, but for everyone at the mansion who is interested.

It wil cover many elements taught in the Emergency Medical Response course offered by the American Red Cross, along with some bits and pieces of the Combat Lifesaver program taught in the military. Dr. Grey will also be giving one or two evenings about mutant specific first aid.

If you want to take a look at the book we'll be using, take a look here.

Julian Keller has sustained a serious injury and will be in the medical lab for the time being. The medical staff will be occupied with his care for at least a few days. If you need something let us know, however, and we will try to get to you when we have a free moment.

I will give further updates as they're available.

Today

I don't know how to do this or what's necessary so bear with me. Some of the kids were kidnapped to another dimension, some more of the kids tried to go rescue them. Everyone who ended up over there is home now and...mostly alright.

Maya Lincoln-Lopez is unconscious in the med lab, not entirely certain what happened there but from what I've gathered she was possessed - or something like that. I'll give her a look over and Amanda can probably do a better job of that when she gets home. Hopefully being out of that world will help.

The kids we rescued who aren't ours have been dropped at a police station so they can be returned to their parents. Think we found the cause of all the recent kidnappings.

Any questions ask...someone preferably not me because my head is killing me and I can't think, but if someone wants to ask me you'd be better off waiting until tomorrow.

The telepaths, Hope, Meggan, and Topaz were just subjected to some bizarre astral activity. No need for a security alert, it looks like some kind of natural phenomena rather than an attack. We've already dealt with it. I've contacted the professor and he'll be returning from Washington early tomorrow for follow-up. If you work in the Medlab don't be surprised if you start seeing people show up with headaches.

All-

I'll be out of town this weekend attending a conference in Washington. I'll be reachable in case of emergency, and will return late Sunday.

Hello All-

Because of the increase in med lab staff, Amelia Voght has decided to relocate to Muir Island to work with Moira, where she feels her skills are more required. She'll still be readily available for help in the event of an emergency.

If you turn page 3 upside down and let your eyes go all blurry, a puzzle appears. At least, I think it's a puzzle. Maybe it's not supposed to be one, but it's interesting.

I also enjoyed the story about the fashion designer. I wonder if they've ever been into eVolution? I may have met them.

So, with all the Star Wars fever going on, for the education of those of us who haven't actually seen this epic yet, how about a marathon movie session this weekend? Start Friday night with the first three, continue Saturday night with the second three? If there's the set up for it - and hey, we live in a mansion and there's plenty of tech geeks, so there probably is - we could even do a projector screen somewhere large enough for all comers. That old ballroom, maybe? BYO blankets, pillows and movie snacks.

My dream

I just woke up from a weird dream. I think my subconscious has finally decided that I'm not a kid anymore. But being an adult is terrifying. Also, Lizard People.

I've recently returned from a trip to the old country with Ms. Amanda Sefton and I FOUND kids to bring back to the school! I guess this is what can happen when you go on a field trip as an adult. They are 15-year-olds Clea Lake, Bas Druid, and Stephen Strange. I feel very certain that their young fates are intertwined with ours. Also, Cata! She is Clea's companion and a sentient being, so please act accordingly.

Two of the teens are magic types and one can shift forms. Why does this sound like a riddle? Well, I just want to give them the chance to introduce themselves and their powers - they'll be arriving on Monday! I know you'll help them feel welcome here after Ms. A and I wore down their guard and convinced them to come.

To anyone who might have heard some strange noises from the laboratories just now, there is nothing to worry about. A few people accidentally caused a situation down there, but it is well in hand now and has been dealt with. There is no lasting damage to the mansion, I just ask that everyone stays away from the laboratories until the clean up operation has been completed.

So, in between the end of school and having to chase Topaz down in India, I've missed a couple of weeks. But now I've got my shite sorted, we're back! Tomorrow's lecture is on Magical Dimensions, including a section on internet memes that are actually real. We'll also have a Q&A on Asgard, seeing how we have three recent returnees (and a few less recent ones) who can talk all about the pros and cons of living in a magical realm.

Hey all! There's an arts and crafts fair this Sunday in District X. I don't have a stall, but I'm going. Anyone else want to go?

Cheers,

Megan

Thanks to all who came to the talk today - I hope you enjoyed our Guest Speaker, the lovely Ms. Tandy Bowen.

Anyone got any questions they wanted to ask? I know we ran over time and didn't have the chance to do our usual Q&A afterwards.

With the help of some of the teacherly types, I've gotten together a syllabus for my infamous "How not to meddle with the occult" class. This year, since there's a lot of new faces both with the Gen X program and just generally, we're throwing open the doors to anyone who is interested.

When: Thursdays, starting @6:00 p.m.
Where: The sunroom on the first floor, central wing.
Who: Amanda Sefton, with assistance from Topaz and Megan Gwynn.

Class 1: Introduction, or "Magic: It's not all Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings."

Class 2: Demons, or "Yes, demons are real. Here's how to avoid them."

Class 3: Magical Dimensions, including a section on internet memes that are actually real.

Class 4: Artifacts, or "Don't touch the glowy rock."

Class 5: Magical Rules and Ethics, or "Why we don't pester our magically-adept classmates to raise the dead."

As usual, Gen Xers are required to attend, but if anyone else is interested, say so in the comments. Depending on attendance, there's usually food afterwards. ;)
