Good to know the whole "underage drinking" argument hasn't changed since I was at the school. *wry* Guys? Next time you're out on the town, you might want to keep your hangovers to personal email. Can't be illegal in front of the impressionable kiddies, mind.

Some of us happen to be legal now, you know. As for the underage folks, I take no responsibility. I bought no one anything that they were not of legal age to consume.

Oh, I agree. Personally, I'm as neutral as the Swiss on the whole topic. I don't care about underage drinking because hey, I'm not underage.

That fact that you are biologically older then I am still makes my head hurt.

You are still older, even if I count the Asgard time, which I cannot add onto my legal age.

See, if you had an Asgardian passport that legally accounts for two years in an alternate temporal framework, then yeah, maybe.

But don't worry, you'll always still be "the older woman" to me.

Marie-Ange would like to point out that Marie-Ange kept bottles of wine in her room at the school under Mr. Marko's nose. I still believe he knew they were there. He had to have known.

At least this time the discussion is from one of the teenagers, and not from overzealous staff members?

(That said, Doug, really, you should know better then to let Mark mix you drinks.)

He once gave me a lecture on drinking under 18. We made a deal. I wouldn't and he wouldn't have me thrown out of X-training.

I thought that was acceptable.

Hey, I was good and kept my hangover to personal email until Mark decided to share it with all and sundry. :P

I do not envy Mr. Summers. He has to deal with this topic at least once a year, and having been the cause of one such memorable discussion, probably isn't too excited about having it brought up again.

True. Um, perhaps I should send him an addendum to the email I sent him.

Mark is not underage, though. Whatever else happened, whatever decisions were made by underage parties to drink, that was their decision. I do not have much of a fascination with drinking. The legal drinking age in Attilan is sixteen, and I did drink at that age. However, I did so only where it was allowed and have never purchased or consumed alcohol in a country where I had not yet reached the legal age to drink.

My personal opinion is that discussions of consuming alcoholic beverages, whether the people in question are of the proper drinking age or not, is a topic best discussed in private or on a communication system that cannot be read by the students attending Xavier's. Post-it notes aside, some topics are simply not appropriate to be posted and discussed on a journal that can be read by everyone on the shared journal system.

Maybe it's time to take a step up from post-its with Mark. Like indelible marker written backwards so that he can read it in the mirror every time he looks at himself.

Any other good (and humorously embarrassing for Mark) suggestions are welcome.

Is it even fair to be talking about him so openly on a forum that he can't read?

. . . Oh, who am I kidding?

Not a bad idea, since we all have a terrible tendency to ignore the laws that we don't like. Honestly, is it really that amazing the local PD hates us?

Since when are they so impressionable? If they are so easily swayed by mention of misdeeds then I'm pretty sure their backbones are flexible enough to be swayed by plenty of other convenient scapegoats like music, movies, and pop culture at large.

Sure, points to Laurie for sticking to her opinion, but I think given that the journals are just that we should be allowed to say what we want without a mother hen response from someone just because they disagree.

Really, it's not our fault Doug can't pace himself.

And see this is why I bring up things like Clarice being evil or mandatory court ordered warnings on my journal, not mentions of my underage drinking as part of a mandatory outing (it's Forge's fault, not mine!).

I guess she'll grow out of it, but I'm sort of amazed she can be that idealistic in general. I mean, how sheltered do you have to be to not realize there's far more fucked up shit going on in the world and that underaged drinking rates pretty low? Maybe that's a bit fucked up for me to say, but me and my gloom cloud just ain't understanding her.

Hey now, it got you out of the house. I bear no responsibility for any trouble that people got into after that point.

Laurie is the epitome of sheltered. She's had a hard few months. With her being on the team, I dunno how that's going to work for her. It's not a game. And things aren't all hugs and puppies and flowers like she wants them to be. Either she's going to have to accept that and grow the hell up, or we might have problems.

Not all of us was hung over, or drinking.
