omg so we just now found out about Steven Hawking's "Time Traveler Party?" where he had a reception for time travelers? but then he didn't announce it till after the fact, and then gloated that nobody showed up? 12:00 UT, June 28, 2009. we figured we'd give him a surprise by dropping in! tonight!!!

but... it turned out kelli had some date she just couldn't break, and morgan said she just wasn't "in the mood," and i couldn't even find abbey because her phone was dead. and when they couldn't make it then the rest of blue team said they were out, which made no chance of red or green showing up.

and then nobody wanted to do it on sunday night because that kind of thing does kinda wipe you out, which means school nights are pretty much out. and people already had stuff planned for next friday.

but we made a date for next saturday for sure!!! go.... time team!

i sooooo can't believe it but we missed our chance again to go to Steven Hawking's Time Traveler Party! i thought we were all set for saturday night, but when it came around kelli had totally forgotten about it and was already downtown at a movie, and morgan is still all sulky and won't do ANYTHING, and abbey now has lost her phone and nobody even knew where she was.

so i tried to recruit some of the boys but they're always hard to get excited about anything if it's not their own idea. i even told them they wouldn't have to wear the uniforms i made and they all looked at me like i was nuts, and frankly i just said it because i know they hate the uniforms and they're idiots anyway. why aren't there any cool boys in time team?

with blue team not showing up, i tried hooking up with red and green but they're pretty insular too, and have their own schedules and aren't really very spur of the moment. not like blue! gooooooo blue!!

i've put everybody down for next saturday - no excuses! we'll hit the shindig at 12:00 UT, June 28, 2009 and then come back and see how smug that Stephen Hawking is then. ha!

hey gals! welcome to psyhigh!!!! sooooooo glad to have new members!!!!

ok, so, i'm on time team? and if you haven't heard about it it's really fun, and you get to do time travel stuff and there's uniforms and meetings and everything. and i just wanted to, you know, like welcome you to school!!!

and, FYI - there's a time travel trailer overnight field trip coming up and they're super fun, and you get to sleep overnight, and it's just really a great time to get to meet new people and have a great time and stuff.

our teacher-leader is Lydia. Lydia Raivata. she's like the coolest teacher and has the time travel trailer parked down on the lower parking lot? it's parked there when she's not time traveling in it. anyway, she's going to announce a time travel field trip like really soon and i wanted you both, @Bel Miracle and @Hannah Lalonde (and anybody!) to know about it. so keep your eye on the Time Team Annals cuz i'm sure she's going to announce it like any day now.

you do need to have, like, psy-stability level III, and you have to have all your temporal inoculations, and not everybody gets those right away when they start school but they're free so if you don't have them get down to Caduceus Clinic like ASAP and get them and then you'll totally be set for the funnest time ever!!!!

it is going to be the greatest. hope to see you there!!!

thx ;)

hi gals! guess it's a good thing we didn't make it to @Lydia Raivata's Time Travel Trailer Field Trip! ;) i mean, usually they're a lot of fun but sometimes there's less fun ones. now most of green team is like, super old, and they're having a hard time fitting in. they're just totally uptight.

i really wanted to go but it turned out i'd promised Kelli we'd go to the Luminous Floating Glass exhibition and i really hate it when people break dates so i stayed but then Kelli had totally forgotten and went to a movie! so i tried getting a hold of Morgan and Abbey but then couldn't find my phone and by the time I did find it the show was over, so i just ended up staying home.

anyway, @Bel Miracle and @Hannah Lalonde, the Team is getting out the Time Cycles this weekend, and even if you haven't done any time travel they're totally easy and fun!!! we put streamers on the handles and hook playing cards up to the spokes with clothespins and you just ride them to next week and back. we have races!!!! it's really a perfect way to get to know Time Team!!!

so you two be sure to try 'em out - i really want to see you out there! and tell all your friends!!!

omg i can't believe it but now there are two morgans! this is so great!!!

there's my bestie @morgan belliwig, from time team, who's kinda sulky but totally my bff.

and now there's new girl @Morgan! i love morgans!!!

ok but maybe there's this thing. i haven't talked to new morgan at all and have only seen her across the cafeteria when somebody pointed her out but she looks EXACTLY LIKE MY MORGAN! except for the hair. and the clothes. and maybe she stands a little different. but from what i could tell she looked maybe too much like old morgan for me to be comfortable with.

worst case - when @morgan belliwig did that... thing... when she went back into herself in the past and changed time... did she do more "come backs"? like, is this another future morgan? or some other side-morgan that now is bleeding through because @morgan belliwig did that thing and now she wore out the walls of time like holes in a sponge?!!

i'm worried this is serious. but i don't want to tell @morgan belliwig in case i'm just freaking out, and i totally don't want to tell @Lydia Raivata or any teachers and get my morgan in trouble for anything... even if it's not her fault.

there's only one thing to do. time team - unite! i'm calling up abbey and kelli and whoever else i can get and we're getting in our time team uniforms and staking out this new @Morgan.

ok so the morgans are getting out of hand. kelli and abbey and i started out by observing @Morgan, new morgan, or morgan #1 as we call her. actually kelli thought we should call her morgan #2, since isn't @morgan belliwig morgan #1? but i argued that #1 meant "first copy" and that our morgan - @morgan belliwig - was the original morgan, and we shouldn't number our morgan in the same sequence as duplicate morgans. abbey, though, thought we should call new morgan "flo." so we really couldn't come to a decision and just kind of left it.

so we're casing out new morgan - @Morgan - using the official time team tradecraft for observing possible temporal anomalies, tag teaming it, and doing entire costume changes between switch offs (which let me tell you can get pretty hairy when all the stalls are full in the girls bathroom!) when suddenly we spot ANOTHER MORGAN! morgan #2! or morgan #3. but abbey calls her "clarice."

kelli broke off to trail this extra morgan, while abbey and i stayed on the first new morgan, but then abbey spotted A WHOLE OTHER MORGAN and called her "larry" and took off following her!

and you know what, when i started to look around the cafeteria there were MORGANS EVERYWHERE! it's like every third girl was a morgan! not perfectly identical morgans, but morgans none the less i tell you!

now, if all these extra morgans are really just regular morgans from other timelines, then really, none of them are "duplicate" morgans, but each their own original morgan. which means the whole number scheme is out the window! i suggested we just contact them and learn their names and call them that, but kelli pointed out that they were all named "morgan" so that wouldn't work. so for now it's just "blonde morgan" and "bangs morgan" and "low-voice morgan" and so on. it is working pretty well. i am creating a field guide where we can catalog them all, taking those cute mini-polaroids of each one and pasting them into my time team memory book with a short description of each.

but what is going on?!? if all their timelines are merging, then it's not like we can send them back anywhere, since each one is already in their own timeline, they're just all crossing here and now at psyhigh like it's grand central psychic station! and they all got out at the same time! does that mean they're all rushing to catch their next train?

i'm glad that time team exists so this isn't surprising or confusing to any of us.

you know, after getting to know a few of these morgans, i love morgans even more!

i still haven't gotten a chance to even interview @Morgan - morgan #1, or 2, or "flo" -because maybe we freaked her out and she's avoiding us. but i did totally make friends with african-american morgan, who kelli was calling "black morgan" and i didn't know if that was ok or not, but i got to talking to her and she's totally cool and we hung out all day and all night and now she's totally like in my squad.

anyway, she and i got together with @morgan belliwig and i had them compare life stories while i took notes. while it's clear they're both morgans from different time lines, they actually had really different lives. like, @morgan belliwig's parents got divorced last year, but this morgan's parents are still together. and @morgan belliwig is really into being serious and sulky sometimes, but this morgan totally makes jokes. @morgan belliwig likes dogs, guess who's more of a cat person? :)

it's amazing how two of the same person from different timelines can be so totally different! and i am soooo lucky to now have them both as friends! would i get along with all the new morgans just as well? i am totally going to find out.

ok so not all the morgans want to be my best friend. just like in life, i suppose.

there's a table of morgans at lunch that everybody's afraid to sit with, so i figured it was time for me to be an ambassador to Scary Morgan World. there was glass morgan and human-sized crab morgan and slime mold morgan and evil cheerleader morgan. and amy, the neanderthal cave-girl morgan.

it's like they had their own language at the table - a bunch of hisses and grunts - and wouldn't answer my very friendly small talk and i'm pretty sure they were making jokes about me because glass morgan screeched something out and evil cheerleader morgan and amy were totally busting a gut!

grrrrrrrr! why do some people just not want to make friends? making friends is like, the positive power that knits the world together! in time! we are time-spiders of love, weaving the future. @Lydia Raivata says that.

oh, so, @Silvia H., i think it could be that Multiversal Studies with Ms. Everett is known to be kind of the "classics" course on interdependent time modalities and multiversal dynamics. honeycomb is still viable, but getting increasingly outdated with new versions like ice cream sandwich, jellybean, tiramisu, and flan. in Time Team @Lydia Raivata teaches you to swap out OS's like you were wearing hats! i mean, each one's good for something, but they're tools to be chosen, not to be stuck in.

but no offense! i totally don't want to be a snobby jerk! there's just so much of the wonderful world out there! scary-morgans and all. ;)

the morgans have not stopped popping up! the school is deploying those mobile smart-dorm yurts all over campus so they have a place to stay. have you been in one? they are sooooo cool and i totally want to get transferred into one. i heard that if you tell the campus that you changed your name to morgan and you need a new school ID then you can start getting all the morgan benefits - like yurts! - so i'm totally looking into that next week.

i'd really like to thank all the morgans that have told their story - @Morgan, @Morgan Fairchild, @Morgan le Roq, @morgan hempshire, @Concrete Morgan, @Morgan the Horse Boy, and @Violet Morgan, who communicates through flashes of color from her eyes. The more that we hear about the lives of morgans, the better we can understand this multiversal nexus anomaly.

is it possible this kind of thing happens more often and we just don't realize it? are we coming together and meeting ourselves from different timelines all the time, but maybe in smaller numbers? I want to ask the jessicas - @Jessica Moon and @Jessica Brooklyn, and the hannahs - @Hannah Lalonde, @Hannah Shulman, and @Hannah Vantas, and the steves - @Steve Johnson and @Steve Vortex II, and see if they feel that this is part of their lives too. because it all seems just too much for coincidence.

ok so i am soooooo beat after the big dance last night!!! mostly because i didn't just go to the dance, i went to the dance in like seven different alternate realities until we got it right! so i am exhausted!!!

it was really cool of @Jessica Moon to make me her Noble Hornet, and it put me in a good position in the middle of things. but i also had abbey and kelli and of course a whole slew of morgans. but it was @Silvia H. who turned out to be really key, because of her familiarity with the Honeycomb Multiversal OS.

the first time around was the biggest disaster. the evil archduke bee Apiformez took possession of @Jessica Moon. then he started using her quill thing to sting everybody else and turn them into human-sized bee creatures! it was the first step in his scheme to take over the planet and make psyhigh his hive-capital! even though both @Silvia H. and I had been stung and had been transformed into human-sized bees, we were still able to use @Silvia H.'s power and navigate back to the honeycomb time-cell where Apiformez first tried to take over @Jessica Moon but this time I caught him in a jar just before he could sting her. whew!

the next time around i think everything was going ok till the cats in the audience got together and started showing off (as cats will do) and began trying to top each other with their catty spell casting powers (it's some cat thing that they keep pretty secret) and one of them (with particularly nasty rows and rows of sharp tiny teeth) had cast some kind of infinite-gravity portal spell and it began a chain reaction that was on its way to leaving quite a crater... so again, @Silvia H. and i went back in time through the Honeycomb Multiversal OS and kept the cats separated. as we were tossing the ring-leader cat back into the crowd i'm afraid it might have gotten underfoot and caused some stumbling with the attendees. My apologies @Scilph!

the other instances were more of the same... in one the dance hall was overrun by enormous cattle who took the whole place hostage and began making demands to trade for our release (sacks of money, a getaway car), but @Jackie Packerman helped us go back in time prevent that by making sure the gate was closed at the agricultural department. "your barn door is open, jackie!" ha! i was proud of that joke. but since @Silvia H. and i rewrote the timeline, i doubt @Jackie Packerman even remembers it.

and... whatever the other instances were. there was some kind of italian vampire dance invasion, where all these guys in capes and cologne started voguing in the middle of the dance floor, and we didn't want to be culturally insensitive but it was kind of messing up the Waggle Dance (which is a pretty delicate operation) so again, @Silvia H. and i went back in time and @Lazzeretto intercepted them at the door when they first arrived and got them to all go clubbing downtown. and then of course that whole timeline got erased so @Lazzeretto has no memory of that either.

near the end @Silvia H. and i were getting kinda picky - adjusting lights, volume levels. you can go back in time and remake history ENDLESSLY and you'll never make it perfect, so it's best just to try and avoid the worst turns and hope for the best with the rest. i think there's a Time Team proverb along those lines.

anyway, overall, super dance everybody!!!!
