All I am going to say re: the tragic death of Mr Litvinenko is that I don't have anything to say that the Health Protection Agency isn't already telling you.

(Except oh there is Polonium-210 in my morgue get it out get it out, of course.)

Manner, as far as we've determined, is unexplained. That is not the same thing as murder, so please, ease up on the KGB for a bit, all right? And on the Metropolitan Police. Them too.

There can't be an autopsy yet, we can't be sure his body's safe to touch.

I haven't talked about this before because the press release couldn't be made -- and my friends at 93 Gloucester, my sympathies with you, as I think that Belgravia is stuck carrying this one through.

(And I'll admit it: I'm scared.)

Can I do anything, Ain?
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 04:39 pm (UTC)
Just be careful not to visit me at work, really? Not as a surprise, anyway.

I'm not sure if I can leave here yet. It might be a bad time for me to take a few days off. Or it might be a perfect time. I'm not sure yet.
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 04:40 pm (UTC)
If you can take a few days off, we can go on our trip. If you can't, it's nothing that can't be postponed. I'd rather go with you than on my own, anyway.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 04:48 pm (UTC)
I'm most certain I can, though I may be taking a few phone calls about authorization and whatnot, and I've still got to find someone to mind the cats, I would have asked Faolàn, but I'm loathe to ask him to do anything at all, at the moment.

... suppose I could bring them with me, but then we'd have to take my car.
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 04:50 pm (UTC)
Selim said he'd look after Freja while I was gone, so he might not mind Coxie and Larkspur for a few days. I can ask, if you'd like?

...is Mr. Kavanagh okay?
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 04:53 pm (UTC)
Um.

Well, he quit.

Talk of the force.

And there's something else, I think, but I don't actually know what, because it's not like Vaughn and Bertie to tell these things. I did have to pick pieces of windshield out of Vaughn and Warner's foreheads, that's all I know.

... and in regard to the cats, I think that'd be lovely.
Scott Laurence: Whut.justaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 04:54 pm (UTC)
...oh.

That's, um. Unusual, right?

Just a sec.

Okay, Selim says it's fine, he doesn't mind looking after them while we're gone.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 04:57 pm (UTC)
I wouldn't call it high on the scale of normalcy, no; both Carolyn and Vaughn are excellent drivers, and I can't for the life of me figure out the connection.

Thank him for me, if you would?

And I really wish I could see you, but I'm trapped in here all day, HPA's going to give their final word soon.
Scott Laurence: Whut.justaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 04:59 pm (UTC)
He looked kind of wrecked after everything.

Selim says it's no problem. I think he's adopting everyone.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:07 pm (UTC)
Considering so many of us didn't really have parents, it's worth his while.

We're kind of an annoying brood of kids, though.

He should ask half of Blackburn. The older half.
Scott Laurence: Whut.justaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:11 pm (UTC)
Ha. Most of us had enough trouble settling in the one foster home for more than six months at a time.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:16 pm (UTC)
I was generally very placid.

Quiet until someone else wasn't. And that's all I really remember. It'd be nice if I knew, I think.
Scott Laurence: Whut.justaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:19 pm (UTC)
I think Uncle Max still has some home video type things that we took when we were sixteen. I sent them to him when I got moved to the Jennings'. I can ask him to send them if you want.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:20 pm (UTC)
I'd ask a doctor, first, because I think there's something about amnesia and watching yourself on tape.

I just don't remember what it is.

Involves bleeding, though.
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:22 pm (UTC)
I'll talk to Will tonight, then, I guess. I'm supposed to have her drop in anyway.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:24 pm (UTC)
Everyone visits you, apparently! I feel like I'm missing out on a lot.

D'you know how Rheys is?
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:26 pm (UTC)
I think they just want to make sure I'm not going to kill myself, really.

Not good, I don't think. She misses Derek a lot. I mean, I do, too, but I'm not in love with him.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:28 pm (UTC)
I don't think you will.

And I'm starting to miss her stacks of subpoenas and her annoying demands, the fact that she's not hounding us is what made me worry about her.

I need to drop by to see Derek, though.
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:30 pm (UTC)
Selim's looking after her, at least.

Looking after a lot of us, really.

Drop by this evening, if you can?
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:32 pm (UTC)
I'll try to.

I'm not sure if I might end up sleeping here.

Guarding things from the media and all.
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:33 pm (UTC)
Try to look after yourself, Ain. I don't want to lose you any time soon.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:35 pm (UTC)
I don't plan on going anywhere.

Except home, with you, as soon as I can.
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:36 pm (UTC)
That sounds like a good plan.

I'll make you tea when you get here, and Selim left some stew that reheats well, if you're hungry.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:37 pm (UTC)
I probably will be. We've had the media in and out, so they've been asking us not to eat in the lab.

Apparently eating around fresh cadavers bothers some people.
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:39 pm (UTC)
...you know, I'm not so surprised at that, really.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:41 pm (UTC)
It surprises me every day, but I've acclimated to the smell of decomp so well I don't even notice it anymore.
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:42 pm (UTC)
I don't think I'd ever get used to it, really.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:44 pm (UTC)
Then I'm afraid we have no future, unless you really like the smell of lemons.
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:45 pm (UTC)
Or I could just not, y'know, come into your morgue.

(I don't mind lemons?)
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:47 pm (UTC)
The smell frequently comes out with us, after long days.

(Good, because lemon juice is the only way to get the smell of waxed human tissue out of one's hair, so it's either the decomp or the lemon.)
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:48 pm (UTC)
This is what showers are for!

And other things.






Oh god I really just said that.
Aingeal Duncan: consideringrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:49 pm (UTC)
I'm cracking up now, and Lauren and Fletcher keep staring at me.

"But she never laughs!"
Scott Laurence: Smilingjustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:50 pm (UTC)
...at least I made you laugh?

Selim is wondering why my face could double as a stop light.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:53 pm (UTC)
It's too bad you haven't a camera.

... We do, but there's nothing interesting to photograph, just a bunch of bored mortuary staff goofing off on the Internet.
Scott Laurence: Smilingjustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 05:55 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry you're bored.

(God. Is there a text version of foot-in-mouth?)
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 05:59 pm (UTC)
(I think possibly that?)

We have cases, always, but we're all busy waiting on Litvinenko. Everyone wants to know and everyone wants to catch it.

It's a paper day for a couple of us, and those two are even boreder.
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 06:00 pm (UTC)
...that would probably make more sense if I understood much about your work.

Sorry. I know bookstores, and that's about it.
Aingeal Duncanrighthereinside on November 25th, 2006 06:04 pm (UTC)
Um, a paper day is when you stay out of the lab and just do paperwork, really. It's like it sounds.

I hate them.
Scott Laurencejustaquietlife on November 25th, 2006 06:26 pm (UTC)
Ah, okay. Like a day when all I do is the books in a financial sense, not a literal one. Those do kind of suck.
