"I can take it off when I get in my bag...", shooooot...; Having that fleecy extra layer on your arms is a great idea in that they might stick out of the bag during sleep.

That, and at some point- folks are going to be shook awake by 'reasons' and jumping to your feet in Observe/Assess for Fight/Flight Reaction mode leaves one in the near buff...

    I'm going to cuddle up to you...

Thanks. Now I'm going to have that damn bass riff stuck in my head all day.

What surprises me is that anyone who has ever been through basic training in the military, can stand to hear that melody again under any circumstances at all. They just pound it into you, as a mnemonic, during those long sessions about "survival cooking under field conditions" and "making use of local food resources". It's probably what put Milo Minderbinder on the shady path he followed... he went mad from having to listen to the same riff over and over and over...

I really don't know how Nancy Sinatra thought it was a good idea to lift the tune to
  • These boots were made for wokkin',
    and they'll make tasty stew.
    One of these days, these boots are gonna
    feed someone like you.

Fairly sure the school has its own access to the portals.
He had done a good job of covering his tracks, but that was to be expected. After all, one does not conspire to ruin a House and murder a queen and then just stand there waving and waiting patiently for retribution.

It was the school portal I was referring to, as being a possible point of failure. Who knows what severe winter-storm runoff and flooding might do to it :-( especially if it's down in a dark basement.

Now they all get into their sleeping bags and go to sleep, but in the middle of the night something ghostly happens and the kids all start running around. And then everybody gets all embarrassed, because they all had really skimpy pyjamas on under what they were wearing, and took off their outer layers when they got into their sleeping bags.
