Continue our tour of MIT. Meet Rick, who apparently suffers from foot-in-mouth disease. He recognizes me and Elli. Jack arrives. Next year, his sophomore, he will be lacrosse team captain. Sweet.
Jack studying engineering, but has not narrowed it down. Rick is going for traffic engineering.
Jack takes his friend away and we go off to lunch.
Record lacrosse games. Use cameras on hover platforms. YouTube page for MIT stuff.
Rechargeable battery – longer life and time between charges
Material to hold energy plus EM generator for perpetual recharge.
Once the tour is over, the others leave and Adrian and I go on a date. Since Justin has no idea he was touring the campus with me, he decides to go all out. Limo with dozen roses and sparkling cider. Dinner on the river. Very nice romantic date. I give him a ride on my Ducati to his car.
Microfiber membranes made of organic crystal and layered into a multilayer latticework that would store energy like lithium cobalt oxide. Cyrillo’s battery would be self-charging using his perpetual-motion EM generator miniaturized.
Flexible battery made out of same material but with fewer but larger layers.
How does my hyperintelligence work?
Why don’t I remember the process I developed afterward?
How can I create a material that does not yet exist?
Can I create the membranes
Quick note – Feb 14 fund-raising fashion show with Swarovski.
Try and fail to create a graphite tube. Ooh! It’s a pencil lead!
Alexander Summers – physics
Lorna Dane – chemistry
Forge – engineering
Project must include why when dealing with powers.
Create a material that has been shaped into something using her powers. Why is it so difficult?
Monitor brain activity? Energy output? Success and failure.
Confocal laser-scanning programmable array microscope with a dual-spinning microlens theta disk
Scan into picoscale
Assemble the cameras on hover platforms for MIT lacrosse tryouts
Elli programs the chips to track using certain parameters
Adrian will be at lacrosse tryouts and he will be attending MIT
His father will be there to escort him on a tour

Lacrosse tryouts at MIT
Stay the night before at MIT
Make arrangements for Rachel to fly out first class for the game. Friday evening to Sunday late afternoon. Car meet at airport to take her to hotel.
Kitty is coming with us
Stay at The Eliot Suite Hotel (<http: />)
Go to the field and set up the cameras. Icarus has override control with certain parameters and a full view of the field.
Coach comes to give the pre-game pep talk. Wow. This guy’s a piece of work. He has a prick attitude about who should and should not be there.
1. Passing the ball (agility test)
2. Scoring a goal
3. Against defenders
4. Organizing team
And here comes the challenge of Kimyee’s right to be there. Morons.
Justin is there and is ogling Elli.
Creepy a-hole is actually quite good. He hopes Kimyee makes the team, wink wink. Ew.
Kimyee gets a text from Madeline. Pick of her in ’68 as lacrosse champion. Kick some ass!
She shoots! She scores! Meanwhile, a-hole screws up epically. He bounces the ball off the goalie’s stick. Denied! He’s out. Better luck next year.
Round 3. Against defenders. She scores again!
The a-hole coach gives a pep talk to his guys that boils down to “She’s a girl. I can’t believe she beat you. She’s a girl. What the hell happened. She’s a girl.” He calls in Jack.
Round 4. With a team. First to score gets a bonus.
A guy on Kimyee’s team puts together a fantastic defense (Yasif). (red FEAT 100%)
The game gets exciting and Kimyee scores.
The coach definitely selects the guy with the plan. Jack leaps to her defense when the coach starts descending into dick mode. He threatens to leave the team if she’s not selected. Well in that case…
And then the “I can’t believe I lost to a girl” whining begins. WTF is it with these people?
Yasif has seen Cyrillo somewhere before. BATTLEBOTS!!!!!
I suggest we grab Mr. Hammer and pull him out on the tour before he embarrasses himself too much. Adrian and I go off with him.
Icarus plays We Are the Champions for Kimyee. They go get the ‘best burgers in Boston’. Text to me and Adrian. We try to ditch Justin. SUCCESS!!!!! He apparently has a Congressional Hearing. It has to do with his inability to deliver on a defense contract. They’ve been changing the parameters and he cannot complete the job with inaccurate information. Or Adrian chained to a rock.
Yasif – agricultural bioengineering. He is from a very small town in Nebraska.
We talk about Monsanto suing farmers for using their genetically altered seeds resulting from the natural process of pollination.
I send Mom a text with the information.
Fruit basket to Madeline.
The rest of the weekend passes. The couples take some time to date and the rest hang and have fun.
Back to school and time to WORK!!!!!
March 17, 2012 – US Olympic Fencing Trials, Madison Square Garden
Kimyee vs. Courtney Hurly – Kimyee makes it!
Kimberly Cross vs. Kimyee – Win goes to Kimyee!
Kimyee vs. Nicole Ross – Kimyee wins and will be going to the Olympics
Kimyee vs. Sata Jacobson – Kimyee!
Alaryssa gives Kimyee a sabre from Sir Alfred Hutton, a great fencing master
The next three weeks pass…
April 6, 2012
Something is missing. ???? As usual, I check to make sure my parents are okay. I call Dad, Mom, and John Castle – no answer. None on the Guardian line either.
The feeling is Mom’s mental presence being absent. Oh. My. God. I go off the chain freaking out.
I get the others and we run to speak with Prof. X.
We have to find the Guardians ourselves while he takes the X-Men to New York, which is under attack.
I have a bad feeling about this.
