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!

9:05:16 PM vadmblackthorne: Hell yeah.

9:05:21 PM vadmblackthorne: Well that was fun y'all. :)

9:05:28 PM vadmblackthorne: Thanks for being part of an awesome ten year.s

9:05:34 PM majdougmcknight: My pleasure.
