Because of the extreme cold weather warnings in New York and other places today and tomorrow, Red X is calling for help providing blankets, food and shelter for the homeless who are exposed. They are especially looking for those who have heat powers (for helping keep people warm while places are found for them) and for those who can stand the cold for a long time (for staying out and looking for people without getting frostbite themselves), but anyone is welcome who is wanting to help.

Let me know if you are interested and I will make the arrangements. Tonight especially is going to be very cold out there.

Fred has just received word that his uncle is very ill and he is leaving to take care of him. He is not sure when he will return, and he is sorry he could not say goodbye in person.

There is a tsunami bearing down on the mutant island of Avalon and since it is not supposed to be inhabited, there is no official response. Everyone who can, meet Clarice and I in the front foyer by 4:20 p.m. Be prepared for evacuation and for first aid response - we only have two and a half hours before the wave arrives.

(I actually remembered this time!)

Tonight's session will be starting after dinner in the rec room. We have a movie for afterwards - Dante's Peak, which Fred assures me is a masterpiece of what not to do in the disaster.

If you're curious about this Red X thing, do come along and ask questions!

Red X Event

It is the late notice, I know, but Red X has asked for volunteers to go into New York tonight and help the homeless to places that are warm. I would suggest that those who are temperature-proof would be the best options, so that we do not end up with frost-bitten volunteers as well!

I will be taking a group into New York around 4:00 p.m. As I am too short to drive the bus, I will need the volunteer to drive also!

This Friday (October the 25th) is the last Friday of the month and that means it is the Red X sign up and training night. We'll be meeting in the common room - I have a movie for you about the San Diego earthquake and the Red Cross response afterwards, to give people an idea of what it is like. If you look very closely, you might even see some people you recognise. :)

If you're interested, I would love to talk to you about it. Let me know and we can arrange time to talk about things, or just come along on Friday. The session starts at 7:00 p.m.

Even though it is the summer vacation, students are still living here and I wanted to let you know that I will no longer be the RA for you. Between school and the X-Men and the Red X program, as well as learning to manage the changes from Genosha, I do not have the time to devote to you as I should.

I have spoken to the Professor and your new RA will be Sharon - some of you know her better as Catseye. Be good to her. :)

And also, if you still want to talk to me about anything, I will always have time for you. Although for the time being, you might have to come find me in the woods, since I am trying not to break too many things getting used to my powers again.

It has been decided that we will be having the party for the end of summer and that it will be on September 3 at the mansion. Everyone who can see this is welcome to come. :)

Hey guys, the doctor who was overseeing Yvette's surgery just came out and told us she's out of surgery. Outlook is pretty good, she made it through surgery just fine and now she's resting in whatever room they have for someone after surgery.

Thank god.

We'll see where it goes from here and keep folks updated.

She's being wheeled into surgery now. Apparently a compatible kidney donor has been found, and the outlook is, from what I'm told, "as normal as can be expected for this type of surgery". I have no idea what that means.

I will do my best to keep everyone apprised of her condition.

Yvette Petrovic and I made it back okay, and we're both happy to be home. But just as a reminder our flight was about twelve hours long so please be gentle.

(Also, Marie, if you've got a minute I think Yvette's got something to give you from her mother.)

I'm in Pristina with Yvette Petrovic and no one's been kidnapped or drugged or anything so far, so we're doing pretty good. Yvette and her mother are both doing well, although her mother's determination to feed me anything and everything she can physically provide before I leave the country is honestly scaring me a little. The fact I probably just jinxed myself into a cult-abduction notwithstanding, Yvette and I will be leaving tomorrow -- we should be back at the school around 5pm.

. . . for my very late flight to pick up Yvette Petrovic. We'll be in around 4pm Monday afternoon, but otherwise I should have some email access if anyone really needs me. Take care, and if you can help it try not to blow up anything too expensive.

Hey…just thought I’d let everyone know that Yvette is home, safe and sound. It was quite the reunion and she and her mother both seemed quite happy to see one another again. If anyone wants the address to write to her and doesn’t already have it, just stop by my room, as Yvette wanted people to be able to stay in touch. Gotta run so David and I won’t miss our flight.

First of all, I should announce I've returned from my hiatus and resumed my position as official staff-counselor. (I figured maybe it was time to formalize that after I started making official announcements again. Sorry for any confusion that may have caused. We'll call last week a transitional period.)

Second of all, concerning Yvette Petrovic: as of this morning she has been released from the Medlab, and for the time being will be sharing a room with Laurie Collins. Thanks to the efforts of Forge and Clarice she's been provided some proper clothing, but please continue to use your discretion about direct physical contact. Yvette will also be getting a temporary journal account to acclimatize her to the culture a little while she's at the school. I'm sure many of you know how stressful being in a new and strange place can be, so please go slow and make her feel at home.

And if at all possible, maybe refrain from mentioning demon attacks or elder gods to her for at least the first two weeks.

As some of you know, there was a small incident earlier today concerning a patient that has been receiving treatment in the Medlab. Now that things have settled down, we can tell you a little more about her.

The patient's name is Yvette Petrovic, and she is from Kosovo. Last week she was recovered from a bad situation by members of the staff, and only this afternoon regained consciousness. She'll be staying with us for a little while until we get some things figured out. Over the next few days she may tentatively be allowed visitors, but the professor and I would ask that you not overwhelm her; she's been through a lot and she's still trying to get her bearings. If she accepts you as a visitor, please take it slow. She's a little shy, and English is not her first language. Avoiding casual physical contact would be a good rule of thumb, too. Her mutation presents a problem with touch, and it's much safer for everyone if this simply does not become an issue. We are working on that, however.

Thank you. We will keep you informed.
