Hi, everyone! I'm just dropping a quick note on this brilliant system to introduce myself, since I have a moment to myself and I've found a computer to play around on. My name is Xi'an Coy Manh, and I'm your new librarian, starting as of now. I've been browsing these journals a bit, and I see you've all had a very eventful summer -- Cecilia was kind enough to explain some things to me (I think she was actually trying to shock me, but I'm pretty hard to shock ;).

Please call me Shan; being called Miss anything gives me hives. I understand things here have been a bit hectic lately, so I am sorry for arriving unexpectedly, but I wanted to see the state of the library before your classes started, and become aquainted with this lovely house so I don't get too lost when things get busy. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you; I'll probably be wandering around blissfully for the next few days, so feel free to say hi if you want to. (I'll also be taking book requests once I've figured out what we already have.)

You'll probably be seeing me around, and there are two other faces you'll likely turn up -- Leong and Nga are twins, nine, and looking for something to do after spending a few days in the van with me. (If they break anything, let me know.) They're good kids, although slightly rambunctious, and very friendly.

(Angelo, thank you so much for your help this afternoon. I don't know how I managed to accumulate that much stuff over the years, but you were much appreciated -- as was the rundown on the mansion. If I can make it up to you, let me know.)

Clothing, huh? I bet they'd love it. What are your rates? And thanks for the welcome -- I have a feeling I'll like it here. :)

Ooo, librarian. Welcome aboard, Shan. And I _thought_ I heard unfamiliar giggling at one point...good, I'm not going as insane as I thought I was.

Thanks! (They do like to spy on people -- sorry about that. They've been playing ninjas all week, which was . . . well, pretty funny, actually.)

I'll figure out some way to shock you eventually. Mark my words.

You didn't shock me with Asgard or the hell dimension. You can sure try, though.

Your timing

From: [identity profile] x-tarot.livejournal.com
Your timing was really very good too. We just moved to the renovated wing with new rooms.

I think that Shiro's little sister needs a roommate if your little sister wants one? Leyu might be in our suite, mine and Amanda's and Rahne's.

I noticed -- God, this place is beautiful. Everything I thought it was. :)

My little sister would be thrilled to be Leyu's roommate, if there's room for her. :) I'll send her down to meet you guys if you want?

Hello, Shan. I see a number of people have beaten me to welcoming you aboard, so just consider me part of the choir.

Once you get settled in, I may descend upon you with large amounts of book requests. I'm hoping to teach a class this fall that requires a number of titles that aren't in the library...

Date: 2004-08-26 09:05 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-karma.livejournal.com
Nice to meet you! (Electronically, anyway.) Thanks for the welcome -- I didn't expect the full welcome wagon, but I sure got it. :)

Oooh! That sounds like a library challenge. Give me names and authors and I will try my best to get it all to you before classes start.

Darnit, you take the opportunity for a nice relaxing afternoon horseback ride and completely miss a chance to help somebody move in. I need to get back in the habit of keeping tabs on the house. Sorry about that--looks like Angelo had you covered, though. :) I'm Jamie, and how about to make it up to you I point Artie and Miles in the twins' direction if they haven't found each other already? They're about the same age and it looks like they fit the same description.

No "Miss," huh? How about "Library Lady?" If the emphasis is on the "Lady?" :)

Date: 2004-08-26 09:07 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-karma.livejournal.com
The twins would be thrilled to meet new kids, and I would love for you to introduce them if you've got a chance. The same description? This could mean trouble, y'know.

Shan! Call me Shan! I'm not one of your teachers. ;)

Hello there! I'm Paige. Actually, if you're in the library right now, I'm the little bit of blonde hair peeking out from behind that stack of books.

I have a feeling we'll be seeing a bit of each other.

Nice to meet you, Paige. :) If you're a library person, I suspect we shall we seeing a bit of each other. (But I keep not-so-secret supplies of library-friendly food for regulars, so I bet we'll get along just fine.)

I really should pay attention to the staff updates. Welcome to Xavier's, Shan. The children should beware the cat; she's not that comfortable around the very short. Neither am I, for that matter, but I don't bite. (Not children, anyway.) Besides, I'm adjusting. Someone needs to compliment me on this but no one's gotten around to it.

There should be an unreasonably large book order on its way in to the library any time now. Don't worry about sorting it yourself, I'll come see that it's distributed. Regardless of appearances, I have actually been preparing for classes. All the lying about in the sun, galivanting around the city, and rock climbing are merely part of a ruse to lull the unwary.

I'll be seeing you when those books get in, if not sooner.

Date: 2004-08-27 10:23 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-karma.livejournal.com
Thank you very much! :) Hopefully the kids will have the good sense to stay away from your cat. I'll tell them to, but why would they listen to me when they could learn the same lesson painfully by themselves? (Is that her in the picture? If so, she's gorgeous.)

I'll be the first to extend my compliments on adjusting, then -- I know how hard it is to adjust to suddenly having smaller people underfoot.

I consider myself duly warned about the book order; I've been anticipating a rush before classes resume (how has this school gone for so long without a librarian?), so I shouldn't have a problem getting them in promptly.

I'm really really really really looking forward to meeting you. :)

Welcome to the Madhouse.

Doug Ramsey, mutant linguist, at your service. You name it, I can speak it. Also, I'm Jamie's roommate, so even if Artie and Miles tell you flat out that _I_ taught them a prank? It's all totally Jamie's fault. ;-)

A linguist! Does that mean I can chatter at you in three languages at once? Excellent.

I'm starting to see that I don't have to worry about my two causing more trouble -- it looks like they'll just be augmenting what's already there. (I think roommates get equal share of the blame, though. I'm sure I read that somewhere. ;)

I've also been known to teach the odd science subject. Welcome to Xaviers, Shan. You or the kids need anything medically-related, just let me or Hank or Moira know.

Sleep now. Sleep _good_.
