7:01:23 PM drunkngunbunny: Heya.
7:01:46 PM vadmblackthorne: Evenig!
7:01:50 PM drunkngunbunny: Sorry I didn't get the log in. I've been really busy lately. Any chance I could write in later and backdate it?
7:01:52 PM vadmblackthorne: Evening, too!
7:02:07 PM vadmblackthorne: Well, the plot isn't advancing tonight, we're partying. No need to backdate!
7:02:31 PM drunkngunbunny: Oh, yay!
7:03:01 PM drunkngunbunny: Get food? :-P
7:03:08 PM majdougmcknight: Yeah.
7:03:09 PM vadmblackthorne: Hi Mike
7:03:16 PM majdougmcknight: Hey.
7:06:23 PM majdougmcknight: So...
7:06:30 PM drunkngunbunny: Partay?
7:06:59 PM vadmblackthorne: Tonight we partay.
7:07:07 PM majdougmcknight: Ah, right.
7:07:21 PM cmdrshelev: we throw a "ship is half blowed up and we just had to retreat" party
7:07:47 PM vadmblackthorne: We're not half blowed up.
7:09:06 PM drunkngunbunny: We're only a QUARTER blowed up.
7:09:10 PM drunkngunbunny: :-)
7:09:22 PM vadmblackthorne: That's an important distinction.
7:09:31 PM cmdrshelev: oryry
7:11:54 PM drunkngunbunny: So...uh...yay? *streamers and all that?*
7:12:53 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay, let's get started. Tonight, Atlantis is in transit with the fleet, and we're in Ten Forward.
7:13:13 PM cmdrshelev: Shelev has not had any drink yet, which is also an important distinction
7:13:23 PM vadmblackthorne: Yet being the operative word.
7:14:02 PM vadmblackthorne: There's an informal party for the Tenth Anniversary of Atlantis's launch!
7:14:29 PM vadmblackthorne: So...
7:14:32 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN PARTY
7:14:36 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN PARTY
7:14:38 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN PARTY
7:15:31 PM vadmblackthorne: ::walks into Ten Forward, glad to have an evening of brevity ahead:: Jack, the usual!
7:15:41 PM majdougmcknight: ::Sits at the bar, experimentally flexing his arm with a frown. Sickbay was able to patch it up to their usual high standards, but he's still on painkillers for the next few days.::
7:15:46 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> Gin and tonic, right away Ian.
7:16:41 PM vadmblackthorne: ::walks over to McKnight:: How's the arm, Doug?
7:16:49 PM drunkngunbunny: ::Percy sits at a table with a bottle of vodka in front of her, drinking quietly::
7:17:30 PM cmdrshelev: ::Sits at the bar, examining a bright green shot of something that is emitting smoke.::
7:17:50 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> You sure about that drink, Commander?
7:18:00 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::slides a G&T to Ian::
7:18:16 PM majdougmcknight: My baseball swing would be all shot to hell, if I'd had a chance to use the holodeck anyway. But the doc anticipates a quick and full recovery. Bullet missed the artery, barely.
7:18:24 PM cmdrshelev: Will it eventually go out?
7:19:19 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> I'm not sure.
7:19:35 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> No one's ever let one sit that long.
7:20:04 PM vadmblackthorne: Glad to hear you'll be alright. ::smiles::
7:20:38 PM majdougmcknight: I'll be better as soon as we get even with those guys.
7:20:39 PM vadmblackthorne: (Hey T'Kirr)
7:20:41 PM lcdrtkirr: ((sorry, was out, just got home))
7:21:09 PM cmdrshelev: ::Blows on the drink and watches the smoke move around but not diminish.::
7:21:09 PM majdougmcknight: ::Nods to Jack:: Whiskey, at your convenience. But save the good stuff until we can see how well I'm equipped to appreciate it.
7:21:16 PM majdougmcknight: (Hey.)
7:21:26 PM drunkngunbunny: (Hoy)
7:21:41 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> Righto, Major. ::pours the drink::
7:21:42 PM cmdrshelev: :eng101: Science will dictate that this drink will eventually cease smoking.
7:22:41 PM drunkngunbunny: ::Looks at the people at the bar, then the PADD in front of her, briefly wondering if the ship's computer has the Beatles on it.::
7:23:53 PM vadmblackthorne: We'll get them, Major. Whoever they are.
7:25:12 PM lcdrtkirr: ::enters through swishing doors, scanning over the patrons before returning her eyes to the PADD in her hand and taking the few steps to the barside::
7:25:23 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> You gonna drink that, Commander, or you just gonna inhale?
7:26:22 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::automatically gets the teapot out for T'Kirr and sets it to steeping::
7:27:00 PM cmdrshelev: ::buzzed::
7:27:00 PM majdougmcknight: ::Nods slowly, as he accepts his drink with a nod and starts off a bit tentatively before simply downing the second half.:: Not quite the rotgut I was hoping for, but I suppose there is the celebration to consider.
7:27:58 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::refills the glass:: Naturally.
7:28:08 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks up at Jack, noticing he's already got her implied order on the way, and nods appreciatively::
7:28:14 PM vadmblackthorne: Ian> ::mingling amongst the gathered crew::
7:28:26 PM cmdrshelev: Where did the pink elephants go?
7:28:31 PM cmdrshelev: ::sniff::
7:28:44 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack>
7:28:56 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> Am I going to have to cut you off after only zero drinks?
7:29:14 PM cmdrshelev: NEW RECKORD
7:29:45 PM cmdrshelev: ::downs the shot before Jack could take it away and falls to the floor in a very good impersonation of dead.::
7:30:01 PM drunkngunbunny: ::She looks up from the bottle, to Shelev, and then back. Muttering something about "lightweights"::
7:30:06 PM majdougmcknight: ::Looks to Jack as Ian moves off.:: I hear long range recon has confirmed the Machen Bren have started fortifying the Xindi colony world, readying it as a jumping off point. I imagine if the Admiral's confirmed that with anyone,
7:30:09 PM majdougmcknight: he's told you.
7:30:15 PM cmdrshelev: ::Involuntarily burps smoke, assuring the gathered that he is not dead.::
7:30:21 PM lcdrtkirr: ::ear twitches at the decibel level of a certain familiar Andorian voice and looks over at its source out of the corner of her eye::
7:30:56 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::preparing T'Kirr's tea:: Oh yes, sad situation, that.
7:31:35 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::pours the tea and slides it over to her::
7:32:00 PM lcdrtkirr: Thank-you. ::picks up the tea and takes a sip::
7:32:17 PM vadmblackthorne: ::clears his throat:: Everyone!
7:32:25 PM lcdrtkirr: ::puts her tea down and looks over::
7:32:32 PM drunkngunbunny: ::Looks up:: Meh?
7:32:59 PM majdougmcknight: ::Looks up even as he starts on the second drink.::
7:33:07 PM vadmblackthorne: ::raises his drink::
7:33:25 PM vadmblackthorne: Ten years ago, Atlantis slid out of spacedock for the first time, and has done nothing but make history.
7:33:38 PM lcdrtkirr: ::listens intently::
7:34:02 PM majdougmcknight: ::Mutters almost inaudibly, albeit with a grin for the first time tonight.:: History and SOME grave robbery.
7:34:08 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::casually pours a glass of water on Shelev's face::
7:35:37 PM vadmblackthorne: My father was in the center seat, continuing a tradition of excellence he began on another ship called Atlantis before this one.
7:35:54 PM cmdrshelev: ::pfffffft:
7:36:25 PM cmdrshelev: ::drags himself onto a stool and rocks around in circles::
7:36:46 PM vadmblackthorne: And even though he's gone, that tradition is certainly not.
7:36:47 PM majdougmcknight: ("A toast for nepotism!")
7:37:12 PM lcdrtkirr: ((Bloodlines, and all that.))
7:37:44 PM vadmblackthorne: So, a toast to ten years of excellence, and to Atlantis herself, may she sail forever!
7:38:15 PM lcdrtkirr: ::raises her... tea::
7:38:30 PM drunkngunbunny: ::Raises her bottle, a smile on her face::
7:39:08 PM majdougmcknight: ::Smiles as he downs the second glass in its entirety before returning it to the counter.:: Okay, Jack. Before my taste buds die a screaming death, I'll try some of the Glenmorangie now. Got any of the 15 year old stuff left?
7:40:08 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> You know I keep a bottle back when I get it.
7:40:16 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::rummages around behind the bar::
7:40:26 PM vadmblackthorne: Ian> ::finishes his drink and heads back to the bar::
7:41:24 PM lcdrtkirr: ::PADD abandoned, watches Ian approaching from behind her mug::
7:41:38 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack, you still alive?
7:42:34 PM cmdrshelev: ::Out of nowhere:: I THOUGHT THIS WAS ZURIYEV SHIP
7:42:46 PM cmdrshelev: :v:
7:43:18 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::emerges with 15 year old whiskey in one hand and a bottle of gin in the other:
7:43:25 PM vadmblackthorne: Hey commander, I won it fair and square. They promoted him.
7:44:32 PM majdougmcknight: Yeah? And how does HE tell that story?
7:44:57 PM vadmblackthorne: He doesn't get to tell it, he isn't here. ::presents his glass to Jack::
7:45:47 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack>::fills Doug's glass and mixes Ian's drink::
7:45:59 PM cmdrshelev: TELL US ABOUT THE P»KER GAME
7:46:40 PM lcdrtkirr: ::observes the conversation, sipping tea::
7:46:59 PM majdougmcknight: Does he greet you with "Ian, you rotten scoundrel!"?
7:47:17 PM vadmblackthorne: Depends on what I've done to get in the news lately.
7:48:19 PM drunkngunbunny: ::And for no apparent reason, Percy giggles quietly for a moment, before looking around quickly around and then keeping her eyes glued to the PADD in front of her::
7:48:33 PM majdougmcknight: ::Happens to glance off to his right.:: Hey, Busard! Don't go thinking we let the new blood off easy on this ship! You get over here and start bantering! That's an order.
7:48:49 PM vadmblackthorne: Yeah, didn't you hear that witty banter is required to serve here?
7:48:49 PM majdougmcknight: ::Glances over to Ian.:: Quick, sir. Back me up, so I don't look stupid.
7:49:02 PM lcdrtkirr: ::raises an eyebrow::
7:49:21 PM drunkngunbunny: ::Looks up, for a moment with a horrified look on her face:: Er...uh...yes sir.
7:49:30 PM vadmblackthorne: Already on it, Doug.
7:49:40 PM drunkngunbunny: ::And proceeds to move hesitantly towards the bar::
7:50:40 PM vadmblackthorne: Hi, Lieutenant, welcome to the party.
7:51:09 PM drunkngunbunny: Thank you, sir. ::She sits at a barstool::
7:51:31 PM vadmblackthorne: Ten years ago, the Chief Engineer was certifiably insane.
7:51:47 PM drunkngunbunny: ::Quirks an eyebrow:: Uh...great?
7:52:00 PM vadmblackthorne: Large shoes to fill, you know.
7:52:23 PM drunkngunbunny: Large and very strangely-shaped, I imagine, sir, if that was the case.
7:52:45 PM vadmblackthorne: Well, he was technically human.
7:53:39 PM vadmblackthorne: Probably still is.
7:53:53 PM cmdrshelev: HELIVED?!
7:54:01 PM vadmblackthorne: I think so.
7:54:15 PM drunkngunbunny: ...What?
7:54:17 PM cmdrshelev: ... was I here 10 years ago?
7:54:29 PM vadmblackthorne: No.
7:54:31 PM cmdrshelev: :(
7:55:18 PM vadmblackthorne: Let's see. The XO back then, if I recall, was a German woman.
7:55:40 PM vadmblackthorne: This is all from stories Dad would tell. Kommander Kristiana Stecker.
7:55:42 PM majdougmcknight: Fantastic! Jack, get me a lager!
7:55:56 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::expertly pours a draft lager::
7:56:22 PM majdougmcknight: ::Drinks it, as he smugly thinks about World War 2.::
7:57:15 PM vadmblackthorne: We didn't have a Marine detachment, but the security chief was a bloke called Keane.
7:57:26 PM drunkngunbunny: ::Looks to Jack:: Er...Jack, is it? Can I maybe get a white russian when you have time?
7:57:28 PM vadmblackthorne: Fairly non-descript, if I remember.
7:57:47 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> Yes, I'm Jack Cahalan, nice you meet you. ::smiles and begins working on the drink::
7:58:19 PM drunkngunbunny: ::Gives him a small smile:: You too.
7:58:24 PM vadmblackthorne: His wife was the Chief of Science, T'Kirr.
7:58:38 PM vadmblackthorne: She wasn't very memorable either.
7:58:39 PM lcdrtkirr: ::perks up in confusion::
7:58:48 PM vadmblackthorne: Mary Jo Keane was her name, though.
7:59:05 PM majdougmcknight: ::Looks to Shelev, waiting for him to shout something about T'Kirr being married.::
7:59:23 PM vadmblackthorne: But, ::chuckles:: guess who was the CMO?
7:59:36 PM vadmblackthorne: ::drinks::
7:59:43 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::gives Busard her drink with a smile::
8:00:22 PM drunkngunbunny: Thanks. ::Sips at the drink::
8:00:29 PM cmdrshelev: ::Didn't hear about T'Kirr being married, as he is staring intently at the carpet.::
8:00:42 PM majdougmcknight: Keane's ne'er do well nephew?
8:00:47 PM vadmblackthorne: A Dr. Brooke Dolan. nee Zuriyev.
8:01:37 PM lcdrtkirr: ::stares off, remembering Dolan::
8:03:01 PM vadmblackthorne: She keeps asking about her sickbay when they have me to dinner.
8:03:06 PM vadmblackthorne: A perfect match.
8:03:32 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::pours a pitcher of water on Shelev::
8:04:03 PM lcdrtkirr: ((oh no she fainted))
8:05:21 PM vadmblackthorne: So, you two have been here a long time. ::looks to McKnight and T'Kirr:
8:05:28 PM vadmblackthorne: Longer than me.
8:05:37 PM vadmblackthorne: Share some memories. ::smiles::
8:05:54 PM lcdrtkirr: ::thinks back, put on the spot::
8:06:34 PM lcdrtkirr: ::lamely:: I used to own a lizard.
8:07:00 PM vadmblackthorne: Odd choice for a pet.
8:07:07 PM majdougmcknight: I once almost got gunned down in an alley by a lizard.
8:07:44 PM majdougmcknight: ...probably a bigger one than yours. Also, better armed.
8:07:59 PM lcdrtkirr: Yes, this was just a pet from Vulcan.
8:08:37 PM vadmblackthorne: Interesting choice for a memory to share.
8:08:43 PM drunkngunbunny: ::Picturing Godzilla at the moment, with a rifle. Proceeds to crack up just a little, then takes a larger sip from her drink::
8:09:23 PM lcdrtkirr: ::stares at her tea, pondering some more::
8:09:35 PM cmdrshelev: ::snores::
8:10:03 PM lcdrtkirr: We didn't used to have Marines, nor Mustangs.
8:10:57 PM vadmblackthorne: Indeed.
8:12:20 PM cmdrshelev: ::falls off the stool he was so precariously perched on.::
8:12:34 PM lcdrtkirr: ::jumps and looks over at the thud of a body::
8:12:44 PM majdougmcknight: Personally, I guess it's not the events I'll remember so much as some of the things I've SEEN.
8:12:52 PM vadmblackthorne: ::hauls Shelev up by the arm::
8:13:14 PM vadmblackthorne: C'mon, lightweight.
8:13:38 PM cmdrshelev: what
8:13:49 PM cmdrshelev: Where are we?
8:14:12 PM vadmblackthorne: The bar.
8:14:15 PM drunkngunbunny: In Wonderland.
8:14:34 PM majdougmcknight: First mission of this ship I was there for, helping the Mreins break their 500 year hibernation cycle, only to find they'd neglected to mention a bunch of their people wanted their beauty sleep...and were, once again, heavily armed.
8:14:47 PM cmdrshelev: ...
8:14:53 PM cmdrshelev: I should be drinking!
8:15:07 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> That's what got you into this mess.
8:15:14 PM cmdrshelev: What mess?
8:15:33 PM drunkngunbunny: ::Points to the puddle of water on the floor:: Probably that one.
8:15:51 PM majdougmcknight: I mean, I don't have any fond memories of those tanks that we had to fight off, but...
8:15:56 PM cmdrshelev: I didn't make that.
8:16:18 PM majdougmcknight: ::Points to T'Kirr:: Even you must have been impressed at their city, from an architectural standpoint.
8:16:55 PM lcdrtkirr: ::nods, remembering:: To make such a structure underground, being so intigrated with their technology, was impressive.
8:17:53 PM majdougmcknight: (They had some underground stuff? That must have been before I got involved.)
8:18:04 PM vadmblackthorne: I remember reading about them.
8:18:09 PM lcdrtkirr: ((I swear there was))
8:18:22 PM lcdrtkirr: ((Where all the hibernation pods were?))
8:18:47 PM majdougmcknight: (Yeah, definitely before I joined. Jason recruited me while you were in the middle of that plot.)
8:19:03 PM lcdrtkirr: ((I thought that part was at the end. =P))
8:19:40 PM majdougmcknight: Okay, fair enough. But I was a little more drawn to what was above the surface.
8:20:28 PM majdougmcknight: Gleaming marble towers, towering hundreds of feet into the air, with the lushest jungle you ever saw, stretching all around. And they built it to last! Now that's craftsmanship.
8:21:12 PM vadmblackthorne: So what else do you remember?
8:22:28 PM majdougmcknight: (God, what DO I remember? Next was the crystalline plot? Or was there one in between?)
8:23:14 PM lcdrtkirr: ((My memory sucks))
8:23:39 PM vadmblackthorne: T'Kirr, you never explained why you brought up the lizard.
8:24:09 PM lcdrtkirr: ::blinks:: It was a good pet.
8:24:24 PM vadmblackthorne: Must have been. ::chuckles::
8:24:38 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks at the floor:: The biomass ate it.
8:25:07 PM lcdrtkirr: I poured salt on it. ::looks at her empty cup, then pushes it towards Jack::
8:25:23 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::pours more tea from the pot::
8:25:32 PM lcdrtkirr: ::glances back over:: The biomass, not the lizard.
8:25:35 PM vadmblackthorne: Ah, on the Constitution.
8:25:43 PM drunkngunbunny: The what?
8:26:15 PM vadmblackthorne: When Atlantis was in spacedock for major refit.
8:26:24 PM vadmblackthorne: We tested a prototype ship, the USS Constituion.
8:26:28 PM vadmblackthorne: *Constitution.
8:26:50 PM majdougmcknight: Right, that was when I got bitched at for phasering down that old growth forest.
8:26:50 PM cmdrshelev: Was that the one that sank :v:
8:26:59 PM vadmblackthorne: Yes, she sank.
8:27:07 PM vadmblackthorne: I never thought I'd lose a starship by sinking.
8:27:09 PM cmdrshelev: You sank a starship :v:
8:27:17 PM cmdrshelev: Worst admiral ever :v:
8:27:33 PM vadmblackthorne: What was that, Ensign?
8:27:44 PM drunkngunbunny: ...How the hell did she SINK?
8:27:45 PM lcdrtkirr: ::perks both brows::
8:27:45 PM cmdrshelev: Worst captain ever :v:
8:28:00 PM vadmblackthorne: There was this giant biomass.
8:28:28 PM vadmblackthorne: And the Constitution sank in it.
8:28:47 PM lcdrtkirr: Along with my lizard.
8:29:08 PM drunkngunbunny: ...Great.
8:29:15 PM cmdrshelev: :cry:
8:29:24 PM vadmblackthorne: We were then stranded for a while.
8:29:40 PM majdougmcknight: He DID blow it up. That's gotta count for something.
8:29:53 PM drunkngunbunny: That sounds fun. It wasn't on a cliche desert island, was it?
8:30:23 PM majdougmcknight: Nah, we were surrounded by lots of old growth forest. Thus the phasering, and the bitching.
8:30:23 PM vadmblackthorne: I did indeed self destruct the ship in the middle of the biomass. Solved the problem.
8:31:33 PM lcdrtkirr: No more prototype.
8:31:36 PM vadmblackthorne: We had this scientist who fancied herself to be native American.
8:31:56 PM vadmblackthorne: They built another one.
8:32:17 PM cmdrshelev: Did that one sink too :v:
8:32:26 PM vadmblackthorne: I dout it.
8:32:30 PM majdougmcknight: She WAS Navajo. She just decided she was, like...born again Navajo.
8:32:42 PM cmdrshelev: ::Holds head::
8:32:49 PM drunkngunbunny: How does that work? ::Eyebrow quirk::
8:33:04 PM majdougmcknight: Remember that time she said we couldn't stop the wolf from getting past our pickets?
8:33:17 PM vadmblackthorne: The wolf that we then shot.
8:33:23 PM majdougmcknight: Repeatedly, yes.
8:33:24 PM vadmblackthorne: And ate.
8:33:25 PM drunkngunbunny: ::Snickers::
8:33:29 PM vadmblackthorne: She then said we angered the spirit!
8:33:36 PM vadmblackthorne: And the wolf's mate would kill us all!
8:33:41 PM vadmblackthorne: So we shot him and ate him too.
8:33:48 PM lcdrtkirr: ((omg how could I forget the wolf))
8:33:50 PM drunkngunbunny: Nicely done.
8:33:59 PM vadmblackthorne: Rather tasty, I must say.
8:34:05 PM majdougmcknight: (I dunno. You PLAYED the damn thing.)
8:34:13 PM lcdrtkirr: ((I know it lol, remember now thanks))
8:35:22 PM lcdrtkirr: ((That's the sim I invented Logan, he got injured by the wolf))
8:35:28 PM vadmblackthorne: ((Oh man.))
8:35:52 PM majdougmcknight: Honestly...it wasn't such a bad setup we had down there, all things considered. Once the trenches were all dug...honestly, I wouldn't mind building a summer home or something there one day.
8:36:03 PM majdougmcknight: Of course, there'd have to be baseball.
8:36:18 PM vadmblackthorne: Yeah, it really wasn't that bad. Peaceful.
8:36:36 PM majdougmcknight: Giant wolves and angry Indians notwithstanding.
8:36:57 PM majdougmcknight: Good fishing there.
8:37:24 PM lcdrtkirr: I hid from the rain.
8:37:51 PM vadmblackthorne: Remember that storm?
8:38:02 PM lcdrtkirr: ::nods vigorously::
8:38:10 PM majdougmcknight: How could I not? I was out in a poncho patrolling the site at the time.
8:39:34 PM lcdrtkirr: ::almost inaudibly:: Drake went crazy...
8:39:37 PM majdougmcknight: Truth be told, you guys were missing out. Once you realized you weren't going to get any wetter...it was really quite soothing.
8:39:51 PM vadmblackthorne: I came out there, remember.
8:39:56 PM lcdrtkirr: I stayed in a tent.
8:40:08 PM vadmblackthorne: Drake did go crazy.
8:40:32 PM drunkngunbunny: Who's Drake?
8:40:32 PM lcdrtkirr: ::eyes Busard:: Your predacessor.
8:40:37 PM majdougmcknight: And weren't you lucky you had me and my amazing people skills there to set things right!
8:40:58 PM drunkngunbunny: ...How many chief engineers have you had that went insane, now? Is it a trend I should look into?
8:41:32 PM lcdrtkirr: ::mumbles:: Warned you already... ::takes a gulp of tea::
8:42:08 PM majdougmcknight: Please, you people wanna talk crazy...you should have been on Cervantes.
8:42:56 PM majdougmcknight: "Hey guys, let's ALL beam down to the planet full od giant, armed lizard men! And then split into groups! Also, I will only begrudgingly allow anyone to carry a weapon."
8:43:07 PM vadmblackthorne: Oh god, that ship. I heard about it.
8:43:25 PM majdougmcknight: I'll thank you not to mention the part that EVERYONE'S heard.
8:43:55 PM vadmblackthorne: What, the amourovirus?
8:44:21 PM drunkngunbunny: The what-o-what?
8:44:26 PM majdougmcknight: ::Sighs:: Hey Jack, you're getting stingy with the whiskey.
8:44:28 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks down at her empty cup, brow furrowed::
8:45:34 PM lcdrtkirr: ::shoves her mug forward again::
8:45:37 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::running low on tea, fills it up::
8:45:45 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::then the whiskey, the vodka, and the gin::
8:45:58 PM vadmblackthorne: JAck> ::then the bourbon, scotch, and beer::
8:46:00 PM lcdrtkirr: What type of tea is this, again? ::takes another gulp, draining half of it::
8:46:16 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> Andorian Jazz.
8:46:33 PM lcdrtkirr: ::blinks:: Andorians have tea?
8:46:47 PM cmdrshelev: We do?
8:47:15 PM vadmblackthorne: Nice subject change. The Amourovirus!
8:47:22 PM lcdrtkirr: ::turns to Ian, squinting at him:: Andorians have tea?
8:47:48 PM vadmblackthorne: It might just be a name, T'Kirr. ::smiles:: You seem to be enjoying it.
8:48:05 PM lcdrtkirr: ::nods then drains the other half::
8:48:35 PM majdougmcknight: You know, tea's an interesting subject in itself really.
8:48:43 PM lcdrtkirr: I like tea.
8:48:57 PM majdougmcknight: Right, see? Riveting!
8:49:05 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::fills another glass for her::
8:49:15 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> ::Then puts on another pot::
8:50:04 PM drunkngunbunny: Only in the sense that trying to discuss it for long periods of time makes you want to rivet other people's mouths shut. Now, what's an Amourovirus?
8:50:26 PM vadmblackthorne: A virus that makes everyone amorous.
8:50:38 PM vadmblackthorne: It was in all the news about Cervantes.
8:50:46 PM drunkngunbunny: ...Oh man. Nevermind.
8:50:49 PM cmdrshelev: whores
8:51:05 PM vadmblackthorne: Andorians do have those.
8:51:20 PM lcdrtkirr: ::to self:: Amo... Amorphovirus...
8:51:58 PM majdougmcknight: ::Sighs:: It's...a long story. Kind of a science project gone wrong. Those lizard people...see, they were archeologists.
8:52:25 PM vadmblackthorne: Mmmhmm.
8:52:31 PM lcdrtkirr: I had a pet lizard, once. ::gulps more tea::
8:52:43 PM cmdrshelev: I think the vulcan is broken
8:52:53 PM drunkngunbunny: I think you're right.
8:52:56 PM lcdrtkirr: ::stands suddenly, taking in a deep breath::
8:52:57 PM majdougmcknight: Studying a long extinct feline race by means of a naturally occuring temporal distortion that literally let them travel back to the time when these cat people were still living. And it was discovered that their decline was related
8:53:20 PM vadmblackthorne: Are you alright, T'Kirr?
8:53:24 PM lcdrtkirr: ::almost falls, clutching Blackthorne's shoulder::
8:53:32 PM vadmblackthorne: ::catches her:: Okay, you're cut off.
8:53:34 PM lcdrtkirr: Not good tea.
8:53:56 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks up at Blackthorne, the corners of her mouth twitching::
8:54:03 PM majdougmcknight: to a drastic drop in the fertility rate. So, this well meaning ensign named Bell cooked up a little something that she figured would...oh, real subject change. Good. I mean, not good. I mean...is she okay?
8:54:17 PM lcdrtkirr: I still have another pot though... ::points limply towards said pot::
8:54:34 PM drunkngunbunny: ::Looks to Jack:: What the hell was in that tea?
8:54:47 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> It's just tea.
8:55:18 PM vadmblackthorne: I don't think you need anymore tea.
8:55:29 PM cmdrshelev: Check the expiration date.
8:55:50 PM lcdrtkirr: ::doesn't seem to make an effort to support herself::
8:56:01 PM lcdrtkirr: Bad tea.
8:56:12 PM vadmblackthorne: ::holding T'Kirr up:: Okay, party's over for you.
8:56:23 PM drunkngunbunny: ...Should we get someone from the medbay?
8:56:27 PM lcdrtkirr: But we haven't gotten to the pararchute yet...
8:57:12 PM lcdrtkirr: ::lays her head down on Ian's chest::
8:57:19 PM cmdrshelev: Give her some of the smoking stuff. :v:
8:57:26 PM vadmblackthorne: I'll just get her home. Back in a bit.
8:57:40 PM lcdrtkirr: Home is quiet.
8:57:43 PM lcdrtkirr: ::mumbles::
8:58:06 PM vadmblackthorne: ::slings T'Kirr's arm over his shoulder and heads out through the door, marveling at having totake a drunk VUlcan home::
8:58:12 PM lcdrtkirr: ::points over Ian's shoulder at Jack:: The tea's bad!
8:58:17 PM cmdrshelev: what
8:58:27 PM majdougmcknight: ::Looks to Jack once they're gone.:: Andorian Jazz, huh?
8:58:40 PM cmdrshelev: I didn't do it
8:59:01 PM drunkngunbunny: That's because you were passed out on the floor, I imagine. ::Eyes Jack::
8:59:03 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack> I've never served it to Vulcans. ::shrugs::
8:59:43 PM vadmblackthorne: PAUSE PARTY
8:59:45 PM vadmblackthorne: PAUSE PARTY
8:59:46 PM vadmblackthorne: PAUSE PARTY
8:59:48 PM majdougmcknight: ::Takes the pot and sniffs it inquisitively.:: Would one of the ingredients happen to include something we brought back from out last trip to Andoria?
8:59:53 PM lcdrtkirr: ::pauses::
8:59:55 PM cmdrshelev: FAIL
8:59:56 PM majdougmcknight: :: Er, paused.::
9:00:23 PM vadmblackthorne: Y'all wanna keep going?
9:00:25 PM lcdrtkirr: For the record, I'm laughing my ass off.
9:00:42 PM vadmblackthorne: I just figured it was geting late for the east coast crew.
9:00:52 PM drunkngunbunny: Why is it that key lime pie always tastes so bad, but key lime ice cream is delicious? It MAKES NO SENSE.
9:00:56 PM lcdrtkirr: I've got... 7hrs to be at work. >_O
9:00:59 PM cmdrshelev: pie
9:01:29 PM drunkngunbunny: Ew...work. I don't have that until Monday :-D
9:02:03 PM majdougmcknight: I work nights on Wednesdays. But yes, in the interest of T'Kirr getting some sleep, this is an okay place to stop.
9:02:09 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay, cool.
9:02:13 PM vadmblackthorne: Logs should be written this week!
9:02:18 PM majdougmcknight: Although if Jack wants to admit he spikes his tea, that's fine.
9:02:30 PM vadmblackthorne: Jack will admit nothing!
9:02:52 PM drunkngunbunny: Jack is a sneaky bastard. Also, I am highly amused that the barkeep would have the last name Calahan.
9:03:02 PM lcdrtkirr: Cahalan.
9:03:05 PM drunkngunbunny: Oops
9:03:06 PM lcdrtkirr: I made the same mistake.
9:03:10 PM drunkngunbunny: Nevermind. Not so funny.
9:03:18 PM vadmblackthorne: I wouldn't rip off Dirty Harry.
9:03:45 PM drunkngunbunny: Dirty Harry? I was thinking Calahan's Cross-Time Saloon. Oh well, that's an obscure reference anyway.
9:04:12 PM majdougmcknight: Dirty Harry kicked ass.
9:04:24 PM majdougmcknight: "I GOTS ta know!"
9:04:27 PM majdougmcknight: CLICK!
