My whereabouts this past weekend
In opening, I must apologize for the lack of updates to this missive over the past few days. I’m sure that you’ll all forgive me once I explain that The X-Men (myself included) have been in the Savage Land, battling against Brainchild and the Mutates - So much for my relaxing weekend. Brainchild has always, for want of a better term, *Creeped Me Out*. I'm glad that Ka-Zar, Shanna and the United Tribes were able to take them off our hands and into "custody". I personally did not appreciate running into Lupa again.
While such activities are undoubtedly necessary, and a responsibility of power, the labors of The X-Men do often prove inconvenient when one is undertaking scientific research. I often wish that there were two of me - but I'm then promptly reminded of a particularly unpleasant experience when such proved to be true. Clones, Evil Twins and Inter-dimensional Doppelgangers are a royal pain.
Speaking of such, I'll take this opportunity to welcome an Ex-X-Man to the on-line world. Madelyne Pryor, ex-wife of the X-Men's own fearless leader, Cyclops, and member during the team's Australian tenure, appears to be taking a leaf out of Mark Twain's book - Rumors of her death appear to be Greatly Exaggerated. Welcome, Maddie, and I hope there are no hard feelings !
Has anybody been watching the new series of Doctor Who? (I swear, the Institute's communications array can pick up anything !) I'm thoroughly enjoying it. The cliffhanger ending to Episode 4 has me on tenterhooks !
In important World News, Doctor Doom is claiming paternity for the impending child of Brittney Spears. I'm sure that this announcement will have an incredibly huge impact on the political situation in Eastern Europe.
Research calls - as does Will & Grace. I must admit that I'm a fan. The ensemble cast are brilliant !
