Day completely ruined. First, Fuhrer Bradley made a surprise appearance with news about State Alchemists being murdered in Central City. Has taken over my office. This might even ruin the entire week. No warning whatsoever. Difficult to resist the urge to scorch Hughes. Rather suspect he just wanted to see the look on my face. Very vexing to surrender office. Still hate Gran’s moustache.
Had to scrap lunch with M. in order to entertain visiting officers. Raincheck for next Tuesday.
This afternoon, Fullmetal challenged me to a battle assessment. So bourgeois. Cannot believe Fuhrer agreed. Preposterous! So humiliating that Fullmetal got the drop on me, will never hear the end of it. Could still have won had Fuhrer not intervened. Clean up was troublesome. Had to give Fullmetal information about Marco. Damn it all. Will have to keep my eye on them both.
Let Hughes buy drinks in compensation for the unpleasant surprise earlier. Briefly suspected that he had started the rumors about this "Scar" person himself so he could bring everyone East and bother me, but now convinced of Scar’s presence. Don’t like that Scar may be coming this way next. Will def. ruin my week. Returned to office to get my coat and found bullet holes in the wall. Must speak to Hawkeye regarding judicious use of firearms.
Oh, and the thing about the windows was a shout-out to the ever-lovable episode 37.
