I apologize if I gave anyone a headache, but in the circumstances, I felt an alert was appropriate.

I can sense that we'll need to practise our drills a lot more in the future. When you hear an alert, that is not the time to go running to the kitchen to find your sister, your boyfriend, your best friend or your stupid damned laptop. When you hear a shelter alert, you head towards the internal shelter areas. When you hear an evacuation alert, you head towards the external muster points. There are absolutely no exceptions.

Now, if anyone needs me, I shall be in the gymnasium showers, scrubbing this infernal charcoal off my veneer. Black is not my color.

I shall certainly need to go clothes shopping in New York this weekend. Let me know who else is coming, and I'll arrange transport and make appointments with the personal shoppers.

For what it's worth, Emma, I appreciate the warning greatly. It was a bit worrisome to see trees going up in smoke out there. I do hope you're alright - you seem to be having a hell of a pick-an-appropriate-measure-of-time.

I would like to join you for the clothes shopping, if I may. The vast majority of my things are in London, and somehow, I don't think father would be very keen on posting them to me, or my going to pick them up.

I am sorry.

I understand, Marie-Ange. But that is why we must practise our drills until it becomes routine.

It's like tornado drill back home--seems like a pain in the butt when you have to do it on a beautiful day when there isn't a cloud in the sky and you don't want to do anything except laze around, but then when the alarm goes off for real at 6:30 in the morning, and you wake up halfway to the shelter already, you think, hey, maybe they were on to something.

It's okay, Marie-Ange, I don't think anybody's mad. :)

I think I might need to be able to when half-asleep. It seems like that is my normal state lately.

I'm on.

But I'm not wearing anything like that.*points at icon*

Jacob, darling, you *couldn't* wear anything like that.

'S what I'm saying. Just making sure you know.

If anyone wasn't aware of your return by now, you've definitely remedied that problem. And as much as you're going to disagree, public outcry at the mistakes made this morning won't help either. Or at least, I don't think it will.

Emma, how much fun it'd be if you'd let me help in stockpiling your closets.

Black, hmmm? Really, it could work.

Outcry? Safety within the school is paramount, Elizabeth. If you wish to quibble over that, go tell it to the gatepost, you'll probably get a better reception.

And darling, if you go anywhere near my closets, I'll build a Sentinel myself and hunt you down.

I know this, Emma. And the gatepost doesn't give off the warm fuzzy feelings you give off, everyday.

If the rest of you continue to talk badly about my taste in clothing. I shall have to kill you. I'm going shopping with you, if not to help, then to amuse myself with everyone's ineptitiude to color-coordinate.

Ms Frost?

What exactly is a personal shopper? The dictionary isn't helping, and my book of American slang does not have it.

He's an effeminate little man named Carlos who goes and gets all the new season Shiseido and puts it on a rack while I sit in the private lounge and flick through the latest French Vogue with a green tea and a bowl of Kalamata olives. It really does make the whole experience a little more pleasant.

You have someone who shops for you?

No crowds? No horrible stinky people with children and sticky hands?

I can see why it would be much more pleasant.
