9:57:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hey hey.

9:59:54 PM EnsRyanCarter: yo what's up

10:00:36 PM Jusstin Case: Heigh-ho, everyone.

10:00:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya Rob

10:01:23 PM Jusstin Case: ...

10:01:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: That's Busard. :V

10:01:46 PM Jusstin Case: I thought perhaps 'twas the Grimby.

10:01:49 PM DrunknGunbunny: Hi! Sorry, on another RP as well tonight, so I'll have to use this one.

10:02:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: She's cheating on us!

10:02:05 PM EnsRyanCarter: nope, I'm Grimby

10:02:06 PM DrunknGunbunny: Yup. It's hot.

10:02:07 PM EnsRyanCarter: Albino Grimby

10:02:08 PM DrunknGunbunny: Anyway.

10:02:22 PM DrunknGunbunny: Mike says he'll be in shortly. He's just making some coffee.

10:02:28 PM Jusstin Case: Woot.

10:02:37 PM Jusstin Case: Now, where did I put that Grimby-slayer?

10:02:57 PM EnsRyanCarter: you haven't seen the mega albino grimby

10:03:25 PM Jusstin Case: ... There's a "mega" version?

10:04:01 PM Jusstin Case: ::grins:: Charity!

10:04:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Heya Miss Suite!

10:04:14 PM EnsRyanCarter: http://www.flickr.com/photos/43258383@N00/3172277867/

10:04:22 PM Charity Suite: ::brilliant smile::  Justin!

10:04:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: We have two sizes... wee... and FRIGGIN HUGE!

10:04:46 PM Charity Suite: OMGZORZ

10:04:49 PM Jusstin Case: AAAAAGH!

10:04:56 PM DrunknGunbunny: Wait, what the crap?

10:05:05 PM DrunknGunbunny: Who is this Grimby?

10:05:18 PM EnsRyanCarter: small and MEGA sized

10:05:27 PM Jusstin Case: It's a looong story.

10:05:32 PM Charity Suite: Run for your lives!!!!!

10:05:41 PM Jusstin Case: Too late; we're doomed!

10:05:42 PM EnsRyanCarter: and there are two other small ones unleashed to the world as well.

10:05:50 PM EnsRyanCarter: making a total of 5

10:06:00 PM Charity Suite: It's breeding like ...

10:06:06 PM Charity Suite: (m) I can't say it

10:06:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Chickens.

10:06:24 PM Jusstin Case: Kabicken?

10:06:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Turducken?

10:06:34 PM DrunknGunbunny: DAMNIT JASON

10:06:39 PM EnsRyanCarter: Chicken Kabicken

10:06:41 PM DrunknGunbunny: :-(

10:06:48 PM Jusstin Case: Hehehe.

10:06:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: WHAT.

10:07:05 PM Charity Suite: How in the hell is it reproducing?  It's not like there's some female Terrible Monsta Rabbit out there that he can boff.

10:07:06 PM DrunknGunbunny: I was literally typing that out when you entered it.

10:07:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: No one beats me to the Turducken.

10:07:44 PM EnsRyanCarter: It's a mystery the world will never know.

10:07:49 PM Jusstin Case: Nor will it want to.

10:07:58 PM EnsRyanCarter: except where there was one, there is now five.

10:08:35 PM Charity Suite: That's awesome, though.  Your friend gets MAJOR props for the reproduction quality.  ::big smile::

10:08:49 PM EnsRyanCarter: she's really good at making stuffed animals

10:09:17 PM Jusstin Case: Oh, yeah.

10:09:45 PM Charity Suite: I couldn't do nearly as well.  Tell her that I am insanely impressed!

10:09:54 PM EnsRyanCarter: I'll tell her.

10:10:00 PM EnsRyanCarter: :)

10:10:37 PM Charity Suite: But, unfortunately, we now have to kill her for inflicting this upon the unsuspecting world.

10:10:45 PM EnsRyanCarter: hahahaha

10:10:48 PM Jusstin Case: Nothing personal, of course.

10:10:52 PM Charity Suite: Oh, no.

10:10:53 PM EnsRyanCarter: of course.

10:11:14 PM DrunknGunbunny: I AM SO CONFUSE

10:11:14 PM Jusstin Case: I'm sure she'll understand.

10:11:18 PM DrunknGunbunny: *CONFUSED

10:11:22 PM EnsRyanCarter: I'm sure she will.

10:11:28 PM EnsRyanCarter: although I think I'll leave that part out.

10:11:34 PM Jusstin Case: It's all right, gunbunny.

10:11:38 PM DrunknGunbunny: o.O

10:11:44 PM Jusstin Case: An extremely inside joke.

10:11:48 PM Charity Suite: ::turns to Gun::  Hiya!  I'm Charity.  Most people here know me as Gem.  ::grin::

10:11:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: There's a disturbing amount of rabbitry in here.

10:11:59 PM DrunknGunbunny: Hi! I'm Rachel. You totally already know me! :-P

10:12:07 PM Jusstin Case: ::giggle::

10:12:09 PM DrunknGunbunny: Sorry, I'm just using a different SN tonight.

10:12:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: That's Busard in the wrong outfit. :V

10:12:21 PM Charity Suite: What??  Another awesomely cool screen name???

10:12:25 PM DrunknGunbunny: :-D It's a cowgirl outfit!

10:12:46 PM Charity Suite: ::snickers::  I think I've seen her picture on Glenn's website. 

10:12:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Alrighty then!

10:12:57 PM DrunknGunbunny: Ah whuh?

10:12:59 PM EnsRyanCarter: Gem as a cowgirl?

10:13:07 PM EnsRyanCarter: I think I've seen that too.

10:13:09 PM Charity Suite: No, not Gem as a cowgirl.

10:13:10 PM EnsRyanCarter: on a website...

10:13:18 PM EnsRyanCarter: I distinctly remember Gem as a cowgirl.

10:13:26 PM Charity Suite: Actually, as far as I know, there isn't one of those.  ::glare::

10:13:30 PM EnsRyanCarter: as about as distinctly as I can remember things these days

10:13:39 PM Charity Suite: Pirate, yes.  Cowgirl, no.

10:13:43 PM EnsRyanCarter: which isn't very distinct.

10:13:45 PM DrunknGunbunny: Yarr!

10:13:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: YARRRRRRRRR

10:13:48 PM DrunknGunbunny: HAH!

10:13:49 PM EnsRyanCarter: don't make me look!

10:13:50 PM MisterBoxingBear: Oh, right.  We're talking about Gem dolls?  I remember those death glares.

10:13:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Beaten. :(

10:13:53 PM Jusstin Case: I think I recently came across all of those images when going through files for backing up.

10:13:57 PM EnsRyanCarter: Gem dolls...

10:13:58 PM EnsRyanCarter: yes.

10:14:21 PM Charity Suite: Oh, gods ... can't those just die a horrible death?

10:14:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Colonel, if you will?

10:14:49 PM EnsRyanCarter: Gem was hawt...

10:14:50 PM EnsRyanCarter: er...

10:14:51 PM MisterBoxingBear: Wuh?

10:14:53 PM EnsRyanCarter: still is hawt

10:15:02 PM EnsRyanCarter: you know what I mean.

10:15:04 PM Charity Suite: ::smacks Glenn into next Wednesday::

10:15:08 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::winces::

10:15:15 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::time traveling::

10:15:19 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::So goddamned confused::

10:15:24 PM MisterBoxingBear: Ah, yes.  Time for a power trip.

10:15:43 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Brandishes whistle::  TWEEEEEEEET!

10:15:48 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::attn::

10:15:50 PM MisterBoxingBear: ATTENTION ON DECK!

10:15:52 PM Charity Suite: ::AA::

10:16:02 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::AA, but LAZILY::

10:16:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Enthusiastically done, thank you.

10:16:39 PM Jusstin Case: :AA::

10:17:33 PM MisterBoxingBear: I can keep at it, if you like.

10:17:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Tonight, after hauling ass away from Orban II for most of a day, the Atlantis and Hemingway have settled down for repairs and relaxation.

10:17:43 PM MisterBoxingBear: We're missing a few AAs.

10:17:57 PM Charity Suite: ::kicks Jusstin::

10:18:07 PM Charity Suite: (w) Whoops, sorry

10:18:09 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Kicks a baby::

10:18:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Captain Gerard and his crew ::eyes Carre, then McKnight:: have been invited over to a party on Lost Harbor!

10:18:17 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Hush you! Alanon.

10:18:38 PM Jusstin Case: (w) I love you, too ....

10:18:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: For those that are new to our party pad, Lost Harbor is a persistent holodeck sim set on a 1930's Pacific island.

10:19:09 PM DrunknGunbunny: Yay!

10:19:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: There's a bar ran by our Ten Forward Manager, Jack, and a Harbor, if you can find it... and a lighthouse, and a Mexican restaurant... and pie.

10:19:47 PM MisterBoxingBear: (If you can't find the harbor, you're in some trouble.  The bar is in it.)

10:19:49 PM DrRoxanneCarre: ...dont forget the baseball museum!

10:19:55 PM Jusstin Case: If only Amelia had that stuff at her disposal. :-\

10:20:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Forgive me if I forgot one of the establishments, but the festivities begin in Jack's Place! Dress appropriately!

10:20:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Questions? Comments? Snide remarks?

10:21:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Not even a snide remark, awesome.

10:21:01 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Yay tequila!

10:21:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:21:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:21:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:21:37 PM Jusstin Case: ::reading his "Beginner's Guide to the Atlantis"::

10:21:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack Cahalan> ::wiping down the bar in anticipation of the party, checking the supplies of all the necessary booze::

10:22:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::double checks the bottle of top shelf London gin labeled "Blackthorne"::

10:22:55 PM Jusstin Case: ::wandering the ship, looking for directions to the holodeck::

10:23:07 PM Jusstin Case: Now I know it's around here somewhere ...

10:23:14 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::McKnight was right front and center, leafing through the music selection on the juke box, but this time, no period uniform.  Just a Hawaiian shirt and some white slacks.  He's had quite enough of playing soldier for one day.::

10:23:52 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::walking down the hallway, crew members are dressed in hawaiian shirts:: Did I miss something?

10:24:02 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::heading to engineering::

10:24:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::double checking his newly pigment infused hair::

10:24:15 PM Charity Suite: ::buttons her Hawaiian shirt, then ties the tails in a knot, then checks her aft to see if the khaki shorts are too short::

10:24:25 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Persephone Busard (just to be pretentious and use her full name for once) entered the holodeck in her floral dress and curled up hair, and though she still had remnants of a limp from the legshot she'd gotten earlier, she had a mind to dance tonight::

10:24:27 PM DrRoxanneCarre: (*snickers*)

10:24:50 PM Jusstin Case: Aha!  Here we are!

10:24:59 PM Jusstin Case: ::Jusstin opens a door ...

10:25:02 PM Jusstin Case: ... into a broom closet::

10:25:09 PM Jusstin Case: Hm.

10:25:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Scruffy> Get outta ma closet, mmmm.

10:25:19 PM Charity Suite: ::ties the straps of her wedge sandals in a bow and heads for a party::

10:25:21 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::stops short of the turbolift...really curious where some of these people are going and follows along behind them::

10:25:32 PM Jusstin Case: ::steps back and says to Scruffy:: Who are you?!

10:25:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Scruffy>  Scruffy's the janitor, mmmm.

10:26:08 PM DrunknGunbunny: Cubit> ::-Dons party shoes made from paper clips!::

10:26:09 PM Jusstin Case: I've never seen you around before...

10:26:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Scruffy> Nobody pays attention to Scruffy as long as their john's clean. :(

10:26:39 PM Jusstin Case: ... Ah.

10:26:41 PM Charity Suite: (you forgot the 'mmm'

10:26:44 PM Charity Suite: )

10:26:45 PM Jusstin Case: Well ...

10:26:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Scruffy> Mmmmm....

10:26:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ( :p )

10:27:00 PM Jusstin Case: Could you direct me to ... Pearl Harbor?

10:27:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Scruffy> S'in Hawaier, mmm.

10:27:30 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: wanders toward the holodeck, all spiffed out in a lovely dress and some comfy wedgies :: Hello Scruffy, is Case here giving you a bad time? Come along Case...

10:27:43 PM Charity Suite: ::gets to the holodeck, checks her lipstick in the doorframe, and pops into the room::

10:27:53 PM Jusstin Case: Ah!

10:27:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Scruffy> Scruffy thanks ya, ma'am.

10:28:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::nods in satisfaction at the permanent color change (fix) and heads out the door::

10:28:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::wakes up with a start after sleeping off the crash from when her stims wore off::

10:28:34 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::sees a group of people entering the holodeck and follows them in::

10:28:43 PM Charity Suite: ::knows Blackthorne's gonna need a week to get the 'styling mousse' to release from his hair, giggles::

10:28:45 PM Jusstin Case: ::follows Dr. Carre to the holodeck::

10:29:30 PM Jusstin Case: ::enters and looks around::

10:29:41 PM Jusstin Case: Ah, Charity!

10:29:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Oh god the party.

10:30:33 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Walks up to Jack's bar:: Heya Jack! Ready for a party?

10:30:43 PM Charity Suite: ::hears her name and turns swiftly on her wedge sandals, in a maneuver that few ladies who aren't from the South can master::  Jusstin!

10:30:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::shows up in the holodeck , Hawaiian shirt and all::

10:30:57 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: heads directly for the bar :: Evening Jack! A nice tumbler of your sippin tequila if you will.

10:31:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> Always, can I get you?

10:31:08 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::enters the holodeck and is surrounded by sun and surf::

10:31:19 PM Jusstin Case: I was hoping to find you here.  Err, that is, I'm glad you made it.

10:31:20 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::pulls a nice bottle of pure agave out and pours for the Doc::

10:31:34 PM Charity Suite: ::sees Carter over Jusstin's shoulder as she hugs Jusstin::

10:31:52 PM Charity Suite: Ah'm so glad y'all showed up!  Who's th' new arrival?

10:31:57 PM Jusstin Case: ::turns::

10:32:02 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Looks around at the selection:: Hmm...I think a Strawberry Daquiri would hit the spot, if you wouldn't mind.

10:32:04 PM Jusstin Case: Oh, that must be the new guy.

10:32:05 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::catches Charity's eye::

10:32:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::sees Suite, Case, and Carter:: Welcome to Lost Harbor. And Atlantis, if I've yet to say that.

10:32:18 PM Jusstin Case: Um ... Brian ... something?

10:32:23 PM Jusstin Case: Brian Carpenter?

10:32:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::turns and starts pouring magic into the blender::

10:32:46 PM Charity Suite: ::hears Blackthorne and turns::  Evenin', Suh.  ::grins::  Nice hair.

10:32:50 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::to Justin:: Ryan, Ryan Carter.

10:32:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::smirks:: Better than it was, for sure.

10:33:05 PM EnsRyanCarter: It's great to be on board, sir. ::to Ian::

10:33:06 PM Jusstin Case: Pleased to meet you, Ryan. ::smiles::

10:33:20 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::looking at his uniform:: I don't seem to be dressed for this.

10:33:42 PM Charity Suite: ::manages to keep a respectful smile on her face::  Ah see that y'all liked the ... tall style.  Y'all make it look good, Suh.

10:33:44 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::somehow can already feel sand in his shoes::

10:33:47 PM Jusstin Case: ::is also in uniform::

10:33:48 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: chokes back a giggle :: I dont know, they do say blondes have more fun...

10:33:50 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::virtual sand, how does that work?::

10:33:54 PM Jusstin Case: Don't worry, Ryan.  I didn't get the memo, either.

10:34:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> A moment. ::heads off to his docked seaplane, opens the door, and rummage in the back seat::

10:34:39 PM Charity Suite: ::leans to the side and winks at her boss::

10:34:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::pours out the blender into a tall glass:: There you are!

10:34:59 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Selecting a nice Calypso number, he gives the breast pocket a reassuring pat, since it contains his comm badge.  He's left instructions that no one is to see the prisoner without him present...not that doing so would be easy anyway, since the brig was currently sealed off by a security field, the access code to which he had shared with no one.::

10:35:07 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::emerges with a straw hat to go with his hawaiian::

10:35:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::covers the hair::

10:35:40 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Grins at the sight of her drink:: Thanks! ::Wanders over to the larger group o' officers, drink in hand::

10:35:46 PM Jusstin Case: (m to Ryan) He looks like a scarecrow.

10:36:37 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: tips her glass in Suite's direction and grins ::

10:36:38 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::glances at Ian:: You should go over and tell him that.

10:36:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::emerges from her bathroom, still feeling almost hung over, but is at least clean::

10:36:54 PM Jusstin Case: I think I'll wait 'til I've got tenure.

10:36:55 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::says that to Justin::

10:36:56 PM Jusstin Case: ::notices Busard approach, drink in hand:: Hmm, that looks like a good idea!  Anybody else want something to drink?

10:37:00 PM EnsRyanCarter: Good idea.

10:37:05 PM Charity Suite: ::grins, seeing a frothy drink::  Oooo ... where do Ah gets me one o' them?

10:37:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::points into the bar:: Right thataway!

10:37:32 PM EnsRyanCarter: I'll take a drink.

10:37:38 PM Jusstin Case: What's your pleasure?

10:38:38 PM Charity Suite: Ah'm Charity, an Ah'll be gettin' a drink.  How's 'bout a ... ::looks around::  Pina Coladah?

10:38:50 PM EnsRyanCarter: How about just a root beer to start with. I still need to get my bearings around here.

10:39:32 PM Jusstin Case: One root beer, and a pina coladah. ::smiles::

10:39:35 PM Charity Suite: ::looks at the lady in the pretty dress::  An' who're you?

10:39:37 PM Jusstin Case: Anyone else?

10:40:24 PM Charity Suite: ::whispers to Ryan::  Th' guy with th' frothy hair is th' Admiral.  ::grins::

10:40:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::is totally in a hat now::

10:40:45 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Smiles:: I'm Persephone Busard. I believe we met briefly when you first got here? ::Offers a hand to shake:: Nice to meet you formally, though.

10:40:50 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::whispers back:: The guy with the scarecrow hat?

10:40:50 PM DrunknGunbunny: Or...informally, rather.

10:40:55 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Just then, Gerard enters the bar, dressed in sandals and a dark green golf shirt.  He didn't currently have anything specifically appropriate to the occasion in his dresser, but he figured this was close enough.::  Quite the setup here, Blackthorne.  Most of my boys haven't made it off the beach yet.  Apparently, there's a small luau a ways down the coast.

10:41:11 PM Jusstin Case: ::approaches the bar:: Hello, there!

10:41:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> I think they're roasting a pig.

10:41:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> You must be Jusstin Case. ::smiles:: What's your poison?

10:41:38 PM Charity Suite: Oh, right!  Ah didn't recognize you outta yer uniform!

10:42:07 PM Jusstin Case: ::blinks:: Impressive! ... How did you know?

10:42:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> Bartenders hear everything.

10:42:27 PM DrunknGunbunny: Heh, it IS a bit of a wardrobe change, I suppose.

10:42:49 PM Jusstin Case: ... Wow.

10:43:02 PM Jusstin Case: Well, could I please get a julep for myself, and a root beer and a pina colada for my friends?

10:43:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::arrives in a rush, having worked some kind of minor miracle to go from hangover to bright floral dress and presentability::

10:43:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Am I late?!

10:43:23 PM EnsRyanCarter: Oh hey, Commander Busard, your the Chief Engineer right? ::feels kinda stupid:: I should know that, but I don't think I've met you yet, oddly.

10:43:38 PM Charity Suite: AH don't know 'bout you, but Ah'm glad th' licht in here don't show off how pasty white we-all are.  ::chuckles::

10:43:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::starts mixing the drinks:: Make sure anyone I've yet to meet comes to say hi, I get to know everyone aboard eventually.

10:43:45 PM Charity Suite: (light)

10:44:06 PM MisterBoxingBear: Gerard> ::Grins::  So, I take it the drinks are on you?  We can call that a good start on the Galaxy Class favor you owe me for this.

10:44:06 PM Jusstin Case: Will do!

10:44:07 PM EnsRyanCarter: My first week kinda started with a lot of smoke and dust. ::recalling the battle::

10:44:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> I really can't thank you enough, but booze is always a good start. ::smirks::

10:44:54 PM DrunknGunbunny: I don't believe you have! I suppose you're Carter, right? I just saw the transfer report earlier this morning.

10:44:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jacks> ::gives him the drinks and a tray:: There you are, enjoy!

10:45:00 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: sniffs the air :: Mmmm...that pig they're roasting must be close to done, smells a lot like bacon. :: tries not to drool ::

10:45:05 PM Jusstin Case: Much obliged!

10:45:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::perks:: Did someone say bacon!?

10:45:19 PM Jusstin Case: ::returns to the group::

10:45:24 PM MisterBoxingBear: (Dammit Carre, what did you do?)

10:45:31 PM Jusstin Case: One pina colada for the lovely assistant medical officer. ::winks::

10:45:49 PM Charity Suite: Oooo!  Thank ya soooo much!

10:45:53 PM Jusstin Case: One root beer for the dashing assistant engineer.

10:46:00 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Well, yes...I actually said "smells like bacon", they're roasting a pig for later.

10:46:12 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::extends hand:: Yup, I'm Carter.

10:46:24 PM Jusstin Case: And one julep for the ridiculously handsome science officer.

10:46:27 PM Jusstin Case: ... That's me.

10:46:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> I haven't had real bacon since my shore leave on Earth...

10:46:53 PM Jusstin Case: Hmm.

10:46:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::heads on into the bar:: Jack! The usual!

10:46:57 PM Jusstin Case: Well, we're alive.

10:47:03 PM Charity Suite: ::takes a big sip::

10:47:03 PM Jusstin Case: Against all odds, I should think.

10:47:15 PM Jusstin Case: That's worthy of a toast, isn't it?

10:47:19 PM Charity Suite: Mmmmmm ... that's a goooood breakfast!

10:47:29 PM Charity Suite: Eeep. 

10:47:37 PM Charity Suite: Er, yes, a toast!

10:47:46 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: glances at Ian's hat :: Nice accessory you have there. :: laughs ::

10:47:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> I think it's the best food you have on Earth.... ::eyes the smoke coming from down the beach::

10:47:56 PM Jusstin Case: ::raises his glass:: A toast!

10:47:59 PM Charity Suite: ::turns her glass so the umbrella hides the fact that the glass is already half empty::

10:48:15 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Shakes the hand:: Well, I look forward to working with you. And I hope you're enjoying Lost Harbor.

10:48:16 PM Jusstin Case: To ... um ... to not being dead!

10:48:24 PM Charity Suite: ::laughs::

10:48:25 PM EnsRyanCarter: Lost Harbor?

10:48:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::Takes the Tom Collins that Jack so deftly mixed and turns to the Doc:: I seem to have a report to write...

10:48:49 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::has no idea he's standing in Lost Harbor::

10:49:07 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: smiles :: ...you could just append it to mine, with

10:49:08 PM Charity Suite: To surviving all manner o' dangerous thangs ... (w) Includin' a bad hair job ...

10:49:20 PM DrRoxanneCarre: ...with pictures included.

10:49:21 PM Jusstin Case: ::chuckles::

10:49:27 PM Jusstin Case: What about you, Ryan?

10:49:34 PM DrunknGunbunny: I'll drink to that! ::chuckles as she sips on her drink, then turns to Carter:: Lost Harbor is the name of the hologram. A little something Colonel McKnight and I came up with. ::noting McKnight's presence:: Speaking of which...I'll be right back.

10:49:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::leaves the toasting folks since she has no drink and heads into the bar::

10:50:07 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Approaches the bar::  Jack, how about a rum and coke?  I think we'll be needing another toast.

10:50:14 PM Charity Suite: ::grins at Ryan::  Where were you afore this?  ::another big sip::

10:50:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::turns to Gerard:: This is Jack, our bartender.

10:50:33 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::has drink in hand:: Ah, this is Lost Harbor. What about me, Ryan?

10:50:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::mixing the Colonel's rum and coke and smiles at Gerard:: Captain, your legend precedes you.

10:50:55 PM Jusstin Case: What should we toast to?

10:51:15 PM Charity Suite: (I swear, I will never get all of the characters straight on this ship)

10:51:45 PM EnsRyanCarter: How about a toast to how well the Atlantis held up in combat.

10:51:52 PM Jusstin Case: Here, here.

10:51:57 PM Jusstin Case: ::slurps::

10:52:01 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::raises his glass and takes a drink::

10:52:14 PM Charity Suite: Indeed.  ::another big ol' sipp::

10:52:20 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::to Charity:: To answer your question...

10:52:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Hey Doc, what was that we were drinking before in here?

10:52:44 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Hmm...margaritas I think last time.

10:52:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Yes, I'll have one of those!

10:53:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::slides the rum and coke to McKnight and pours more magic into the blender::

10:53:16 PM EnsRyanCarter: I just finished at the Academy, pretty much. And did some time on the Davenport during my junior year. I'm not really sure if this is my first or second post.

10:53:34 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::sips to the toast as she approaches McKnight:: Hm...well, I WAS going to make a snappy comment about wallflowers, but then you moved.

10:53:43 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::shrugs and takes a sip from his drink::

10:54:07 PM Charity Suite: ::gazes into her now-empty glass::  Depends on if'n ya left th' Davenport in more'n one piece, Ah imagine.

10:54:10 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Jack, Harper here is looking for a margarita on-the-rocks

10:54:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::pours from the blender into a salted glass:: They weren't frozen last time, but I thought you'd like to try it this way.

10:54:31 PM MisterBoxingBear: Gerard> Oh?  I hope it leaves out that time I tried the orange stuff at that bar on Casperia Prime.  How about a scotch, straight up?  I'm behind on the toasts.

10:54:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::slides the frozen magic over to Harper::

10:54:54 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::grins:: I wasn't onboard as engineering. I was a liaison from the Daystrom Institute.

10:55:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::impressed:: High quality order, coming right up.

10:55:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::gets a top shelf single malt down, and prepares it neat::

10:55:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::slurps on the margarita:: Oooooo...

10:55:44 PM EnsRyanCarter: I was there mainly to work with the AI scouts and make sure they didn't...rebel or, you know, become sentient. ::grins::

10:56:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::hands Gerard the scotch:: There you are, enjoy.

10:56:02 PM Jusstin Case: Good plan!  Hope that all worked out well.

10:56:37 PM Charity Suite: ::chuckles::  An god-ferbid th' AI get's a life ... or several!

10:56:49 PM Jusstin Case: ::groans::

10:56:57 PM Charity Suite: (Oh, ouch, please remove the apostrophe)

10:57:39 PM DrRoxanneCarre: (performs an apostrophe-ectomy)

10:57:42 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Half smiles at Percy::  Well, give it a few minutes.  I've got one thing that needs saying, and then maybe the comment will apply the next time you think of it. 

10:57:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::thinks about a cigar, but decides against it::

10:58:11 PM EnsRyanCarter: It happened once, from what I was told.

10:58:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> I'd offer you a cigar, Ron, but given the events of late, I doubt you'd accept. ::smirks::

10:58:29 PM Charity Suite: Eeep.  Fer real?

10:58:32 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Raising his voice::  Alright then, ladies and gentlemen. One more toast

10:58:54 PM Jusstin Case: ::looks over at the colonel::

10:58:58 PM Charity Suite: ::listens and grabs an apple martini off of a passing cabana boy's serving tray::

10:58:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::looks at the marine::

10:59:18 PM Charity Suite: ::dropping off her empty colada glass::

10:59:19 PM EnsRyanCarter: For real. ::takes an apple martini::

10:59:21 PM Jusstin Case: ::more bourbon for the science officer::

10:59:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::watches McKnight::

10:59:28 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Raises her glass::

10:59:30 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: opens her small, yet tasteful purse and pulls out a small box, hands it to Ian :: I thought you might be interested in these. I had them shipped in on the last supply ship.

11:00:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::takes the box and holds it at his side, waiting for the toast::

11:00:34 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Raises the glass in his hand::  I hope you'll forgive me for bringing down the mood a moment, but this needs to be said.  As we all know, the mission behind us was a resounding success.  Our man is well and truly secure, the Admiral's on the mend, and all things considered, it was worth the trip.

11:00:56 PM Jusstin Case: ::nodding along::

11:01:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::Raises his glass in appreciation::

11:01:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::raises the margarita, hidden behind the fishbowl::

11:01:49 PM MisterBoxingBear: But as always, there's a cost.  Not all of us left that place.  So, if you would, let's take a moment.  To the victorious dead.

11:01:58 PM Charity Suite: ::raises the martini glass::

11:02:12 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::raises his glass::

11:02:28 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: lifts her glass in honor ::

11:02:39 PM Jusstin Case: ::nods and holds up his tumbler::

11:03:08 PM Charity Suite: To their brave memories:: 

11:03:17 PM Charity Suite: ::big ol' sip::

11:03:21 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Takes a good gulp of his::  Alright.  Now let's pay our respects by honoring what we can imagine would have been their wishes.  And get back to the merry making!

11:03:30 PM Jusstin Case: Indeed!

11:03:36 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::takes a drink from his glass::

11:03:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> If I may add.

11:03:56 PM Jusstin Case: Wh--

11:04:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::after a nice swig of his drink::

11:04:14 PM Jusstin Case: ::stops short when Adm. Scarecr-- err ... Blackthorne begins::

11:04:19 PM Charity Suite: ::feels the beginnings of a nice buzz starting, turns as Admiral Big Hair starts to talk::

11:04:27 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Lowers his glass an inch or so, and looks on curiously::

11:05:01 PM EnsRyanCarter: :listens::

11:05:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> I wouldn't be standing here if not for all of you, but more importantly, a threat to the integrity of our leadership will soon be neutralized with what you all have achieved on this mission. My thanks to all of you, so drink to yourselves on a job well done!

11:06:18 PM Jusstin Case: ::takes yet another sip::

11:06:21 PM Charity Suite: Ah'll drink ta that! 

11:06:26 PM Charity Suite: ::giggles::

11:06:28 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: Takes a nice healthy swallow ::

11:06:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::slurrrrrrps::

11:06:31 PM Jusstin Case: ::begins to feel a bit ... animated::

11:06:33 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::drinks to that::

11:06:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::polishes off the Collins and finds that Jack has another ready::

11:06:57 PM Charity Suite: ::in a lower voice::  And ta doin' a real number on th' Admiral's hair ...  ::sip::

11:07:47 PM Jusstin Case: ::blinks hard::

11:08:10 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::drinks to all of it. As a result of this, she no longer has a drink.:: Hey Jack, I think it's time for daquiri number two. Unless people keep making speeches, in which case I'll switch to water.

11:08:32 PM Jusstin Case: What about you Charity?  Where did the Great Bird of the Galaxy direct you before you signed on Atlantis?

11:08:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> No more speeches, make with the drinking and dancing already!

11:08:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::whirrs the magic blender::

11:09:09 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Nods approvingly as he drinks on.:: 

11:09:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::heads over to the jukebox and selects a completely inappropriate for the setting Irish jig::

11:09:57 PM Jusstin Case: ::momentarily interrupted by Ian's ... unique taste in music::

11:09:59 PM Charity Suite: Oh, uh ... ::sip::  Here an' there ... but Ah'm not supposed ta talk 'bout it until th' liti .. liittl ... lita ... th' hearing is ovah.

11:10:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::pours Percy another daquiri and starts on another margarita::

11:10:14 PM MisterBoxingBear: ACTION> A sudden commotion can be heard outside, swiftly rising in volume as a procession makes its way down the dock.  Then, Shane Sellers enters, leading the way with one end of the spit in hand.

11:10:15 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Quirks an eyebrow as she takes her daquiri:: I..er...don't know how to dance to that one.

11:10:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> BACON!

11:10:27 PM Jusstin Case: ::does a double-take:: Hearing?

11:10:31 PM EnsRyanCarter: Hearing?

11:10:46 PM Charity Suite: Oh lookit th' flamin' pig!

11:10:46 PM EnsRyanCarter: Alright, well now you gotta tell us.

11:11:01 PM Charity Suite: Pig> Put me out!

11:11:02 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::looks over at the spit::

11:11:21 PM MisterBoxingBear: Sellers> I hope we don't have any of those pork hating religious types in the house!  Even if it does mean more for me!

11:11:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> That looked pretty cool for a second. ::as the pig goes out::

11:11:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::pours from the magic blender into Harper's glass and somehow manages to reapply salt to the rim::

11:12:11 PM Charity Suite: ::inhales appreciatively::  Ah shore do love me a good pig roast.

11:12:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::eyeing the pig with religious intensity::

11:12:24 PM EnsRyanCarter: I am hungry.

11:12:34 PM Jusstin Case: ::decides it best not to pry into the lawsuit thing::

11:12:37 PM Jusstin Case: Indeed!

11:12:40 PM Charity Suite: ::laughs::  Why do Ah think you're always hungry?

11:12:47 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Looks at Harper::: I...I can't be CERTAIN, but I think Harper MIGHT want some.

11:12:49 PM Jusstin Case: Where do we get in line for servings?

11:13:16 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: enjoys the jig as she follows the conversation ::

11:13:25 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::grins...trying to find something to say, shrugs:: I'm getting some pig while it's still kinda on fire

11:13:36 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::heads down towards the spit::

11:13:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::queues up some appropriate jazz and swing instead of the Irish jig, noting the lukewarm reaction::

11:13:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::takes a big drink:: That... that is remarkable.

11:14:11 PM Jusstin Case: ::follows Ryan, not wanting to miss out::

11:14:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> About time, Mr. Sellers. Jack, get this man the beer I owe him!

11:14:21 PM Jusstin Case: Charity, shall I bring some back for you?

11:15:11 PM Charity Suite: ::tags along, taking hold of Jusstin's arm::  Oh, no, Ah'll come along an' pick me out some ribs.

11:15:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::starts pulling Sellers a good malty porter to go with the pig::

11:15:18 PM DrunknGunbunny: (Jack> ::pees in a beer bottle and hands it to him:: :-P)

11:15:23 PM DrunknGunbunny: (DAMNIT)

11:15:27 PM Charity Suite: (Ewww!)

11:15:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Nice try!)

11:15:32 PM Jusstin Case: (Gross!)

11:15:43 PM EnsRyanCarter: (well played)

11:15:58 PM DrunknGunbunny: (Well, at least SOMEONE appreciates my terrible sense of humor)

11:16:01 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::standing in line for some ribs::

11:16:14 PM MisterBoxingBear: Sellers>::Puts the spit down on a stand, and backs away for dear life rather than get in Harper's way::  Hell, as long as you're at it, pour two!  I'm thirsty, and I'm sure I saved someone else's ass out there at some point.

11:16:17 PM Charity Suite: (Glenn also likes fart jokes, just so you know)

11:16:27 PM EnsRyanCarter: (sounds like engineering is gonna be fun)

11:16:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::pulls a second pint:: Coming right up!

11:16:44 PM Jusstin Case: (Stay away from science.  I prefer not to drink urine if I can avoid it.)

11:16:53 PM DrunknGunbunny: (Hells yeah its going to be fun)

11:17:06 PM EnsRyanCarter: (we should also include science...)

11:17:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::heads back over the bar and opens the box Carre gave him:: Oh just what the doctor ordered, fresh cubans.

11:18:17 PM MisterBoxingBear: Sellers> ::Takes the first pint the moment it's ready, and tears into it with gusto, draining the glass in a couple of quick pulls::  Hey, that's no synth!

11:18:24 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Not exactly what I ordered, but at least I know these are clean.

11:18:43 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Notes the jazz now playing, which she CAN dance to, and turns to McKnight:: So...do I have to make a wallflower joke or will you dance with me?

11:18:50 PM Charity Suite: Mmmm, them ribs look mighty tasty.  Oh, an' they gots a bog ol' fruit salad, and cornonnacobs!

11:18:57 PM Jusstin Case: ::getting impatient as Random Crewmen 57-65 slowly get their pork servings::

11:19:10 PM Jusstin Case: ... Cornonnacobs?

11:19:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> Considering I had to start my collection over, it's well appreciated. Thanks.

11:19:26 PM Charity Suite: *big  (Charity's a little drunk, don't mind her spelling)

11:19:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> Not at my bar it ain't.

11:20:03 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::gets some ribs and takes a cournecob::

11:20:12 PM Jusstin Case: [Hehehe!]

11:20:15 PM Charity Suite: (Ha!)

11:20:22 PM DrRoxanneCarre: If you're looking for something in particular let me know, I'm sure we have them.

11:20:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::devouring a plate of barbeque and bacon::

11:20:32 PM EnsRyanCarter: (hehehe)

11:21:33 PM Charity Suite: ::gets her plate and finds a table covered with a checkered cloth and a hurricane lamp in the center::  You guys wawna sit here?

11:21:48 PM Jusstin Case: Sure!

11:22:00 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::eating courne:: Sure

11:22:05 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::sits down::

11:22:19 PM Charity Suite: ::brought along LOTS of napkins::

11:22:21 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Looks down at Percy's leg::  I dunno, Busard.  Sure the doc and her icy stethoscope would approve?

11:22:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> I would really enjoy some Monte Cristo number ones....

11:22:45 PM Jusstin Case: ::plops down::

11:22:49 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::finishes the plate and licks her lips:: DAMN.

11:22:58 PM Jusstin Case: ::now on julep No. 3, may not be getting up again soon::

11:23:38 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::munchmunchmunch::

11:23:38 PM Charity Suite: ::wipewipe::  Good stuff!

11:23:41 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Johnnie likes those, I'll pick up a few next time I see him. If I can get him to part with them. :: grins :: Hes rather partial to them.

11:23:51 PM Jusstin Case: ::nom nom nom nom nom::

11:23:54 PM Jusstin Case: ::ding!::

11:23:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> I do have some quality liquor to trade.

11:23:59 PM Jusstin Case: ::nom nom nom nom nom::

11:24:05 PM Charity Suite: (Hahahaaa)

11:24:24 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::glancing out at the beach::

11:24:28 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Well thats a whole other story, he can be pursuaded.

11:24:34 PM Jusstin Case: [Now, if only people remembered what typewriters were, that joke'd be much more hilarious::

11:24:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::wipes her mouth with a convenient moist towelette, and finds Sellers:: That was some damn good barbeque.

11:25:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> I thought as much, let me know. Care to dance?

11:25:15 PM Charity Suite: (Oh, crap ... I have to fake knowledge of what barbeque is!)

11:25:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Now you may be a damn yankee, but you're not fooling me there!)

11:25:55 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Busard quirked her eyebrow with a smirk:: Would I ask if she did?

11:25:59 PM Jusstin Case: [What's Charity's preference?  North Carolina?]

11:26:09 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Sure, I think I can still cut a rug.

11:26:13 PM Charity Suite: (Uhhh ...)

11:26:40 PM Jusstin Case: ::turns to Charity:: So, Charity, being from the South, I imagine you know a thing our two about good barbecue.

11:26:52 PM Charity Suite: (You. Are. A. Poop.)

11:27:04 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Grins as he takes Busard's hand in his own, snaking his other arm around the small of her back::  What the hell.  I AM armed.

11:27:07 PM Jusstin Case: [Yes.]

11:27:18 PM Jusstin Case: How does this stuff measure up?

11:27:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::leads Carre out to the dancefloor:: How's the old man been during all of this?

11:27:55 PM Charity Suite: ::busy chewing, smiles apologetically to Case::

11:28:04 PM Jusstin Case: [Nice dodge. :-P]

11:28:23 PM Jusstin Case: ::notices Ryan eyeing the beach::

11:28:31 PM EnsRyanCarter: She's keeping her southern cooking secrets to herself it seems.

11:28:44 PM Jusstin Case: Charity, you're a doctor.  Is it true that you have to wait 30 minutes after eating before swimming?

11:29:15 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Grins:: Well, good to know SOMEONE is. ::Rests her other hand on his shoulder aaand...dances!::

11:29:21 PM Charity Suite: ::swallows and starts the massive clean-up wiping::  Naw, it's just a ol' wife's tale.

11:29:38 PM Jusstin Case: ::looks at Ryan and looks at Charity and grins::

11:29:38 PM MisterBoxingBear: Sellers>::Sinking his teeth into some pork cooked well enough to just barely still be nice and chewy.  He eats almost as fast as Jvar, but he at least washes it down with beer every few bites.::

11:29:39 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::finished another rib, just a pile of bones on his plate::

11:29:39 PM Jusstin Case: Race you!

11:29:47 PM DrRoxanneCarre: The same as always, listens to what I've gotten myself into and lets me find my way out. He was rather startled by the side-effects of the first cure we tried. :: glances at Ians head and grins ::

11:29:54 PM Jusstin Case: ::dashes off in the direction of the shore!::

11:30:03 PM Charity Suite: Hey!  No fair!

11:30:08 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> I'll shave it all off it I have to.

11:30:16 PM Charity Suite: Ah'm wearin high heels!

11:30:26 PM Charity Suite: ::to Ryan::  He gets dunked fer this.

11:30:31 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::thinks he knows what will cause him to throw up, jumps up and runs for the beach:: So what! I'm still in uniform!

11:30:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (*if I have to)

11:31:44 PM Charity Suite: ::stomps her foot and glares after the two of them::  Boys ... grrr

11:31:47 PM DrRoxanneCarre: It was never as bad as you thought it was, and it DID lead to getting you all fixed up. Now if I could have only managed to get you to sing some of those old songs...

11:32:03 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::stops:: You need someone to carry you?

11:32:04 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::And since I just now saw the Harper post, Sellers grins as he wipes his mouth with an only slightly used napkin::  And that was some darn fine flying.  I regret I was too busy to see more of it, but seeing as how I'm still alive, I'll call that a good tradeoff.

11:32:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> Which songs?

11:32:08 PM Charity Suite: No!

11:32:09 PM Jusstin Case: ::emerges from a conveniently placed changing tent and dives off a pier::

11:32:19 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::runs back:: I can carry ya!

11:32:25 PM Charity Suite: No, no!

11:32:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Likewise, I'd heard about you from the Admiral in advance, but it was good to see first hand.

11:32:38 PM Charity Suite: Don't you dare ... ::backs up::

11:32:54 PM Jusstin Case: [You could always impale him with one of your shoes!]

11:33:03 PM DrunknGunbunny: (And then you could roast 'im!)

11:33:22 PM Charity Suite: (They're wedges, not stilettos.  You don't wear stilettos to the beach, silly boy  :-P  )

11:33:28 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::glances at her then the beach::

11:33:29 PM DrRoxanneCarre: White Wedding, Hot in the City, or my personal pick for you, Rebel Yell.

11:33:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> I have no idea what you're talking about. ::dances anyway::

11:34:29 PM EnsRyanCarter: You know what...

11:34:33 PM Charity Suite: ::manages to get her shoes off::  What?

11:34:36 PM Jusstin Case: ::hasn't quite noticed he's alone in the water yet:

11:34:49 PM Jusstin Case: ::gurgle, gurgle::

11:34:52 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I'll send you some holograms of them.

11:34:57 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::grabs her shoes:: Those are some really fancy shoes? ::heading towards the beach with them::

11:35:04 PM Charity Suite: Hey!!!

11:35:14 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::runs for the water::

11:35:15 PM Charity Suite: Come back here with them shoes!

11:35:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> Something tells me I won't like them.

11:35:42 PM Charity Suite: ::gives chase, like an idiot::

11:35:56 PM Jusstin Case: [Give me what?]

11:35:57 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Grins::  Nicer to watch when we're not shooting at each other, isn't it?

11:36:17 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::jumps off the pier into the water, with shoes in hand::

11:36:36 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: grins :: No, probably not but you can dance to them!

11:36:37 PM MisterBoxingBear: ^Sellers> ::Finishes his beer, and gestures Jack for round three.:: 

11:36:41 PM Charity Suite: Ohhh, you are in suuuuuuch deep doo-doo!

11:37:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::pulls another pint for Sellers and magic blenders a margarita for Harper::

11:37:08 PM Jusstin Case: Glad you finally decided to join in!

11:37:21 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::dog paddles out into the ocean and waves a shoe at her:: I bet these are pretty nice shoes.

11:37:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> We'll see about that. ::grins::

11:38:11 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::knows that he's gonna be in a lot of trouble with her later::

11:38:19 PM Charity Suite: ::thanks to superior plot productions, she's wearing a swimsuit under her party clothes, and drops her shorts and Hawaiian shirt on the pier and dives into the water::

11:38:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::eyes the margarita warily, the first two having been heavy on the tequila::

11:38:39 PM Jusstin Case: [Maybe after all the pina coladas she won't remember!]

11:38:49 PM Charity Suite: (Hey, I had *one*!)

11:38:54 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::swims out into the water looking for Case:: Justin!

11:39:19 PM Jusstin Case: [Isn't that enough? :-D]

11:39:25 PM DrunknGunbunny: ::Looks over at the water as they dance:: Well, SOMEONE'S having fun.

11:39:28 PM Jusstin Case: You ... stole her shoes?

11:40:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> Good call.

11:40:48 PM Charity Suite: ::dives and grabs Jusstin and Ryan by the ankle and pulls them both under::

11:40:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::walks up to Harper and Sellers:: I heard there was some fantastic flying out there.

11:41:26 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::floating in the water waiting for Charity to catch up, gets pulled under, but in his surprise tosses the shoe behind him::

11:41:28 PM Jusstin Case: Aagh!

11:41:38 PM Jusstin Case: ::drops the shoe!:

11:41:46 PM MisterBoxingBear: Sellers> ::Looks up, and demonstrated the depth of his appreciation for false modesty.::  You heard right.  Sorry you had to sleep through it.

11:42:10 PM Charity Suite: ::surfaces well away from them::  Okay, hand over th' shoes, an Ah'll let y'all live.

11:42:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> I would have loved to have been out there, but those days are over for me.

11:42:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> I didn't put a scratch on your bird, I promise.

11:42:25 PM Jusstin Case: ::coughs:: Well ...

11:42:30 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::surfaces, looks at his hands and shrugs::

11:42:43 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::stupid grin on his face::

11:42:45 PM MisterBoxingBear: Seller> ::Slaps Harper on the back::  Well, I'd say you can rest easy.  Turns out this girl can savage a hell of a lot more than bacon!

11:42:47 PM Charity Suite: Oh no you di'n't ...

11:43:08 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::grins like an idiot::

11:43:20 PM Jusstin Case: Well, you're the one who pulled us under!

11:43:23 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: meanders through the buffet and returns to her place at the bar with a nicely packed plate ::

11:43:40 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::points:: I think I see a seagull carrying one away

11:44:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> Yeah, I'd say that if I can't be CAG, I picked the best replacement. ::raises his Collins that Jack filled up:: To our birds!

11:44:14 PM EnsRyanCarter: Well Charity if you want... you can have my boots.

11:44:27 PM Jusstin Case: ::starts diving arouund, looking for the one shoe::

11:44:30 PM EnsRyanCarter: They're not stylish, but they are shoes!

11:44:33 PM Charity Suite: ::closes her eyes and sighs::

11:45:02 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::notices one of the shoes behind Charity and tries to swim around her::

11:45:17 PM Charity Suite: ::pushes Ryan's head under water as he swims by::

11:45:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::sighs, grabs the new margarita, and toasts:: Here here!

11:45:43 PM EnsRyanCarter: I have a pair of Timber-- ::glug glug::

11:45:44 PM Jusstin Case: ::pulls up the other, which is now covered in mud and kelp::

11:45:48 PM Jusstin Case: Found one!

11:46:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Big Bertha the Fish> ::eats the other one::

11:46:12 PM Charity Suite: ::looks at Jusstin's find::  Oh, jus' lovely ...

11:46:23 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::surfaces a bit away from her but before he can grab the other shoe it disappears from the surface:: Uh oh.

11:46:37 PM Charity Suite: (Big Bertha the Fish?  That's the best you could come up with?  :-P )

11:46:39 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::sees a shadow disappear back into the water's deep::

11:46:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (That's the fish from Mario 3 that swallows you whole!)

11:47:22 PM Jusstin Case: [Those things were annoying!]

11:47:25 PM EnsRyanCarter: (I remember that...damn fish...always trying to kill you)

11:47:56 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::laughs:: I think that fish just ate your shoe!

11:48:01 PM Charity Suite: ::sees Kirby the Shark go after Big Bertha::

11:48:16 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::grabs his nose and dives under water::

11:48:30 PM Jusstin Case: Maybe we could use the other one as bait?

11:48:59 PM Charity Suite: We could use *you* as bait!  ::pushes Jusstin under the water again::

11:49:05 PM Jusstin Case: ::laughs::

11:49:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> By the way, since you um... lost the Serenity, Boudica's yours now, Commander.

11:49:13 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::sees some squid moving in a diagonal pattern and then gently float downward, away from him again, and some boxes with question marks on them, surfaces::

11:49:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Thank you sir!!

11:49:23 PM EnsRyanCarter: That is the oddest coral reef I ever saw.

11:49:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Awesome!)

11:49:57 PM Jusstin Case: [Did you see any spinning sets of fireballs?  Or is this not one of the advanced-level coral reefs?]

11:50:01 PM Charity Suite: Kirby the Shark> HiIIii!

11:50:18 PM Jusstin Case: Yi!

11:50:26 PM EnsRyanCarter: (YI)

11:50:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (oh god YI)

11:51:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Matt Hooper and Quint> ::sail by on the Orca after Kirby::

11:51:14 PM EnsRyanCarter: [spinning fireballs in water, what were you on Mr. Miyamoto?]

11:51:20 PM EnsRyanCarter: [cause I need some of that...]

11:51:30 PM Jusstin Case: [That game did not science!]

11:51:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> I promise not to break her!

11:51:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> You'd better not break my fighter.

11:51:51 PM EnsRyanCarter: (that game did not science?)

11:51:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::eyes him:: MY fighter.

11:52:01 PM Jusstin Case: Come back with Charity's shoe, you fearsome fish!

11:52:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (It's a game about hallucinogenic mushrooms, what do you want?!)

11:52:20 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::dives under water again and swims downwards::

11:52:25 PM Jusstin Case: [Good point.]

11:52:28 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::looking for the fish::

11:52:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> I'm going to have to tell Zuriyev about that. ::chuckles::

11:52:37 PM Jusstin Case: ::grabs something:: Got it!

11:52:50 PM EnsRyanCarter: (mmm... mushrooms)

11:52:56 PM Charity Suite: ::curious as to how Jusstin can talk underwater::

11:53:17 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::swims down to an old rusted green metal pipe where a reef is growing over::

11:53:23 PM Jusstin Case: [He's not actually under water, just on the surrface.]

11:53:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Quint> Shoe goes in the fish, fish goes in the water, our shark's in the water....

11:53:52 PM Jusstin Case: ::pulls up Ryan's leg::

11:54:22 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::glances around, but is yanked up::

11:54:31 PM Jusstin Case: Oh.  Sorry, Ryan.

11:54:31 PM Charity Suite: ::sees Nana and Popo paddle by on a random ice floe::

11:54:32 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::surfaces, coughing::

11:54:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (ICE CLIMBERS!)

11:54:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (in the south pacific?!)

11:54:58 PM Jusstin Case: [Tropical ice climbers.]

11:54:58 PM EnsRyanCarter: (global warming)

11:56:10 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: pauses with bbq grimed fingers ::

11:56:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Sorry that went so late, but parties are fun! :)

11:56:22 PM DrunknGunbunny: They are!

11:56:49 PM EnsRyanCarter: and now you know what Lost Habor's ocean life is like... it's like a Nintendo Ocean

11:56:52 PM Jusstin Case: I heart parties.

11:57:00 PM Jusstin Case: And Nintendo.

11:57:10 PM VAdm Blackthorne: See, I didn't know that, but now I do. :)

11:57:46 PM EnsRyanCarter: and I got to steal Charity's shoes.

11:57:52 PM Jusstin Case: And I helped!

11:57:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: And survived it, apparently.

11:57:57 PM Charity Suite: You so owe me a pair of shoes.

11:58:01 PM Charity Suite: Both of you.

11:58:06 PM Jusstin Case: Aw, shucks.

11:58:13 PM EnsRyanCarter: thankfully I won't have to go through the physical.

11:58:17 PM EnsRyanCarter: phew.

11:58:21 PM Charity Suite: That's what *you* think.

11:58:28 PM Jusstin Case: Creepy.

11:58:43 PM EnsRyanCarter: we can just skip that part.

11:58:49 PM DrunknGunbunny: Dun dun duuun!

11:58:53 PM EnsRyanCarter: cause I know it's one of those tropes for new members

11:58:56 PM EnsRyanCarter: but you know..

11:59:03 PM EnsRyanCarter: traditions are meant to be broken

11:59:14 PM Charity Suite: What in the heck is a 'trope'?

11:59:29 PM Charity Suite: You're not even ... literate.

11:59:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Next week, I'm not sure exactly what we'll be getting ourselves into yet, but I'm sure it will be awesome, right?

11:59:35 PM Jusstin Case: What in the heck is corninnacob?

11:59:55 PM Jusstin Case: Right1

11:59:59 PM Charity Suite: It was a cornonnacob, thankyouverymuch.

12:00:12 AM EnsRyanCarter: cournennacob

12:00:16 AM Jusstin Case: That sounds like the name of a dumb Star Wars villain.

12:00:21 AM DrRoxanneCarre: :: makes a mental note to stock up on hangover cure hypos ::

12:00:22 AM Jusstin Case: Cornonna Cob.

12:00:36 AM VAdm Blackthorne: Congrats again to Charity for winning December's Log of the Month!

12:01:37 AM DrunknGunbunny: Alas, I must depart and take your security officer with you. He has to drive me home.

12:01:53 AM VAdm Blackthorne: Who better to drive home with than a security officer?

12:02:04 AM Jusstin Case: And I must attempt to get *some* rest before work tomorrow. :-\

12:02:08 AM Charity Suite: It's midnight, and I shall do my turning-into-a-pumpkin routine.
