A little help?

I just got off the phone with Clarice's mom. Apparently when you can't get your daughter on the phone right away, you call her best friend. I told her that we're okay here.

That's not the only call we've gotten. The phones are going mad. I know everyone's busy especially the team leaders but if I could get a teacher to help me that would be appreciated. Preferably someone who speaks whatever the woman who keeps calling speaks. She sounds upset.

Friday night

My husband informs me that I fail as a human being and general rouser of rabble. As you can expect, I greatly resent this charge. It's completely untrue and it's his fault anyway.

That being said, not that he's right, I'm commandeering the kitchen and rec room at midnight on Friday. Students, staff and hangers on are welcome to join me. We're having a late night ice cream party (Bobby's sending supplies, I haven't lost my mind) and then we're going to watch a movie.

[P.S. If you've been around long enough to remember these how these parties go, I expect you to show up. I have original Godzilla films. If I could get Kitty here, I would.]


When they say emergency all day meeting, turns out they mean it.

The Red Cross would like donations of your time, your money and your blood. The blood drive will be Thursday. Both donors and volunteers are needed.

Also needed are people to assist in the construction of aid package, people to help with organizational elements, and a host of other activities that I have lots of information about for anyone who is interested. Red X members, you should all be getting information in your email.

There's going to be a fundraiser in a couple weeks as well.

Red X Opportunity

Registered members of Red X will have already received information about this in an email but I thought I'd post it here as well.

Efforts in San Diego to do reconstruction after the earthquake have been on-going but things are going too slowly. So the Red Cross has sent out a call to its members asking for a donation of time and hard-work. Because Xavier's Spring Break is next week and we have such a stronghold of Red X members here, they'd asked us to come and help out.

I won't lie to you, it's going to be a lot of hard work. It's a chance to help people though and I think we can all get behind that.

Talk to any of the Red X members here for information on how to get involved.

To forestall any rumor or speculation...

As I told Tommy in my reply to his post, yes, the Cassidy who escaped from prison in Ireland is Sean's cousin and Terry's uncle. It would appear that Terry left Cassidy Keep with him today without letting her father know where she was going. Sean's gone after them.

I know that a number of you are going to worry no matter what I say, but please do keep in mind that this is the man who raised Terry for a number of years. There's no reason to believe she's in any danger, just that she may have made an unwise choice in terms of how to carry on a family reunion. If anyone needs to talk about this, let myself or Ororo know.


Cassidy - the BOTH of you - learn to settle your little family spats quieter, or barring that, with less destruction to the landscape.

I'll expect to see the both of you today to make repairs, or so help me I'll drag you kicking and screaming off to do it.

Theresa - this isn't like you. You're a good kid, but I'm not cutting you any slack here.

Sean - You should damn well know better.
