Do you know how disconcerting it is to go to sleep when it's dark out, and then wake up and realise it's still dark out? Jet lag: Fun for the whole family. Speaking of disconcerting, there's nothing quite like finding pictures of yourself that are nearly four years old when you least expect it.

American television, my old friend, how I've missed you! And Mexican food. And marshmallows.

...What day is it, anyway? And why is there no bakery in this neighbourhood?

Our neighborhood? Ask Doug or Mark. They know all of the places that have food. The only bakery I know is by the office.

And yet you people still live here? Tragic. Truly tragic.

I am certain that there are bakeries within walking distance, I just do not know where any are because if I am going to go shopping at a bakery, I am going to go to the one I know.

I know a place.

It's like my other mutant power. ;-)

Thank god. I was beginning to think I was living amongst the savages.

With Emma as our boss? We're terribly fashionable and cultured.

Well, except for Jubes.

Ah, point taken.

Hmmm...Maybe I could convince her to convert one of the downstairs apartments into a bakery...

I am sorry, which one of us was wearing a shirt for "Mars Madness" today?

I had a sport coat on. I was working my "hacker chic".

I will not be the subject of your mockery.

If you buy horrible 'indie' glasses, I am going to hide them.

What is it I am supposed to say when you say that? "I believe you shall?" Am I getting that right?

Hey now! I'm perfectly fashionable. I just have my own style, that's all.

May I ask after the identity of the pastry-deprived newcomer?

Jake Gavin. One of the few former guidance counselors who lived to tell the tale.

...And you might be?

Jean-Paul Beaubier. Current teacher and another former guidance counselor.

Why do you require a bakery near at hand?

From: [identity profile] x-courier.livejournal.com
Clearly we need to go out to get drunk and exchange war stories at some point.

And to answer your question: Because I don't have my own pastry chef?

And you do have mobility issues, I am guessing.

From: [identity profile] x-courier.livejournal.com
It's not that--I mean, that's part of the problem at the moment, yes. But it really comes down to a deep and abiding belief in the soul-healing powers of pastry.

Plus, I'm hungry.

What do you teach? And what unlucky soul have they shanghaied into becoming guidance counselor these days?

Date: 2009-03-21 01:43 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-cynosure.livejournal.com
I will keep this in mind.

Haller works that aspect with the kids, I think. I'm teaching flight and literature this time around -- getting back into the swing of things.

More people I'll have to buy drinks for. Noted.

What period of literature, or are you doing a general survey? And has anyone put together an International Studies class yet?

Date: 2009-03-21 02:03 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-cynosure.livejournal.com
We're analyzing and dissecting the works of the Brothers Grimm this term. The students seem to be enjoying it.

And no, there is no such course that I am aware of.

Date: 2009-03-21 02:10 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-courier.livejournal.com
Originals, I presume?

And I continue to be amazed by that. I always thought International Studies was a perfect fit for Xavier's.

The unsanitized versions, complete with hacked limbs, cannibalism and literally putting the fear of God into youngsters? Most certainly.

It fits the place, perhaps, but not necessarily any of the available staff.

From: [identity profile] x-courier.livejournal.com
Excellent.

I suppose you're right. I probably shouldn't complain too much or they'll try to make me do it.

You should be safe there. If you are staying here at the Brownstone, you will not be asked to teach anything.

Except perhaps How To Be A Bad Influence. I think Wanda's got a doctorate in it.

From: [identity profile] x-courier.livejournal.com
Would you believe she learned it all from me?

Me either. But it does explain why we make such fabulous roommates.

Actually, Nate used to teach International Studies, back when I was a student there. I think Elpis tends to take up his time mostly tho', now.

Probably cause you're in the wrong parts of the neighborhood.

Date: 2009-03-21 02:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-courier.livejournal.com
Ahhh, indeed. Do you think Emma would let us move?

Date: 2009-03-21 03:04 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-icarus.livejournal.com
Hell if I know. You in the brownstone?

Date: 2009-03-21 03:09 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-courier.livejournal.com
I am. At least the playoffs are on--college, at least. I may starve to death, but I'll still have basketball.

...Ooh, I wonder if there's any cake left.

Can't help you there. Unless you like bachalor's type cooking, but then you gotta make a trip cause Im in the mansion.

Pie's much better, prolly healthier too, I reckon.

Date: 2009-03-21 03:12 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-courier.livejournal.com
Pie! Wanda, why is there no pie?

Date: 2009-03-21 03:13 pm (UTC)

Who are you and why havn't we met?

Date: 2009-03-21 03:32 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-courier.livejournal.com
Jake Gavin. I used to work at Xavier's a frighteningly long time ago. And i've only just gotten back into town--haven't had the chance to run up to the mansion yet, although I have the feeling Amanda might haul me up there soon.

Who might you be, if you don't mind my asking?

Date: 2009-03-21 03:35 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-icarus.livejournal.com
Jay Guthrie. I reckon you might know my sister and brother, Sam and Paige, but I dunno of you do or not. They never mentioned you before.

Mandy's a good girl. Havn't seen her in awhile though. If you're around, you should stop in. ... Maybe.

Amanda appreciates the compliment, and will be coming back to the mansion in a bit, once her eyes have settled down enough to feel okay about driving. Apparently Amanda is allergic to pepper gas and phosphorous grenade glare.

Only Jubilee gets away with 'Mandy' and that's 'cause I call her Tinkerbell back. Watch it, Boy Blue, or I'll have to find something suitable for you. ;)

Well, that and the fact that if you kill me, you have nobody else to use as a meat shield.

Date: 2009-03-22 04:17 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-icarus.livejournal.com
Well I just got away with it, didn't I?

Date: 2009-03-22 04:42 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-courier.livejournal.com
Paige I know--she gave me a plant, once. I don't know that Sam and I ever managed to meet.

...Maybe? Should I make sure to have pie if I come?

Date: 2009-03-22 01:41 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-icarus.livejournal.com
Plant is probablydead now. I've gotta go to the greenhouse and fix mine. I reckon its dying.

Apple pie is a must though if you have another, I'm willing to try.

Date: 2009-03-22 02:30 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-courier.livejournal.com
Yeah, unless someone rescued Daphne from my room after I left. Plants don't handle international travel well, so I left her here.

If I come to the mansion, I'll make sure to have pie, preferably apple.

Date: 2009-03-22 04:17 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-icarus.livejournal.com
Well I reckon I'll see ya when you do. I gotta nose for pie.

Jake, good to hear from you! To save your wallet, cause it's starting to look like you will need it, I'm buying the drinks when we get together.

Date: 2009-03-22 04:50 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-courier.livejournal.com
Doctor! It would be unseemly and ungentlemanly of me to turn down your offer. Simply name the place and time, and I shall be there.

If you can get over to the West Village, Magnolia has the best cupcakes in the city. (http://www.magnoliacupcakes.com/) In my very humble opinion.


Welcome back, Jake!

And also, they deliver.

You, sir, may just be my savior. How can I ever repay you?
