(10:02:32 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Tripod *snicker*
(10:02:53 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I kinda sad I'm so easily amused.
(10:02:54 PM) TKirr [] entered the room.
(10:03:02 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: *its
(10:03:50 PM) Percy: Naw. It's better than being difficultly amused, like Marvin the Robot.
(10:04:06 PM) Percy: Hi T'Kirr!
(10:04:14 PM) gsong [] entered the room.
(10:04:24 PM) gsong is now known as RyanCarter
(10:05:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya glenn
(10:06:12 PM) Percy: Hoy thar Glenn.
(10:06:43 PM) TKirr: Heya Percy =)
(10:08:37 PM) LtThors: (afk)
(10:09:03 PM) RyanCarter: hey what's up
(10:11:42 PM) Percy: Not much. Andst thou?
(10:11:58 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (OMG Vista sucks!)
(10:12:49 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :(
(10:13:13 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: My desktop died so I bought this new laptop...we arent getting along well with each other. :(
(10:13:36 PM) TKirr: Oh sad. =(
(10:13:40 PM) Percy: Boo! It's true, Vista does have a few quirks that are unpleasant.
(10:13:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I'm getting a pre-release copy of Windows 7.
(10:14:05 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Before I go totally insane.
(10:14:23 PM) Percy: Windows 7?
(10:14:28 PM) Percy: Was ist das?
(10:14:33 PM) TKirr: :: TWEEEEEEEEEEET :: Attention!
(10:14:42 PM) Percy: Argh! ::AA::
(10:15:04 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (its the next version of windows, has 'xp mode' so my old games will run) :: aa ::
(10:15:38 PM) LtThors: ::AA::
(10:15:50 PM) RyanCarter: I'm running Windows 7 RC 1 on my pc at home.
(10:15:51 PM) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: Tonight, we approach the Omega test site on a near-full impulse coast, engines off. Our diversionary probe broadcasting our transponder signal has been launched, and to cut heat output, all decks but 1, 6, and 12-18 have been evacuated and had life support shut down. As to whether or not the diversion worked, we'll know when we arrive...
(10:15:54 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(10:16:22 PM) Percy: We've still got a little bit until we're actually THERE, right?
(10:16:44 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: We're refridgerating Percy/Kate?
(10:16:45 PM) RyanCarter: cool, we're done with the probe
(10:16:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Yes, a little bit.
(10:16:55 PM) Percy: Okay, cool.

(10:18:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Also, sickbay is on deck 15. It's still got power, if that's what you meant by the fridge question.)

(10:19:13 PM) CdrHarper: :: asleep in sickbay ::
(10:19:37 PM) TKirr: :: perches on the right seat, waiting and watching ::
(10:19:38 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Despite the impending potential crisis, McKnight is not on the bridge, nor will he be until called. As soon as the evacuation was reported as completed, he found a seat in sickbay, and has been perched by Percy's bio bed.::
(10:19:49 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::He's not actually smiling.::
(10:20:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: We can't risk full on scans without being detected. See what data you can gather passively.
(10:20:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: runs a scan on Kate checking for healing/problems on Kates insides ::
(10:21:04 PM) CdrHarper: ::: climbs out of a yellow submarine onto a dock jutting out into a sea of bacon ::
(10:21:22 PM) TKirr: :: nods, checking her display :: Already collecting what we can.
(10:21:24 PM) Chaka [] entered the room.
(10:21:42 PM) RyanCarter: ::back in engineering now that the messy job of jerry-rigging the probe is all done::
(10:21:55 PM) Percy: :: Percy's vitals had improved significantly since her innards were replaced, and it was becoming clear that it would not be long before she hopefully gained consciousness. On her side of things, her dreams were beginning to get less vivid. On others, her hands began to barely twitch occasionally.::
(10:22:12 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: notes on the chart that everything looks good and the scars are fading nicely ::
(10:22:19 PM) Percy: (*others')
(10:22:32 PM) RyanCarter: ::had to use a ton of duct tape and bobby pins to macguyver his way out of that one even with Justin, Puddington and the emo guy's help::
(10:23:00 PM) Puddington [] entered the room.
(10:23:18 PM) Chaka: ::And rather than drinking, the resident Andorian fighter pilot is seated in his craft's cockpit with an Ushaan-tor and w whet stone. There's no conceivable way he'll have cause to use the weapon, of course, but it's a nice and comforting metaphor for the payback he intends to collect all the same, just as soon as they arrive.::
(10:23:30 PM) CdrHarper: :: eyelids start to flutter ::
(10:23:37 PM) TKirr: :: glances sidelong at Blackthorne :: I can feel your anxiety from here.
(10:23:44 PM) Puddington: :: Was trying very hard not to accidentally make everyone die::
(10:23:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I was caught with my britches down once. It won't happen again.
(10:24:02 PM) Puddington: :: It was harder than it should have been. But there were so many pretty buttons tempting him to push them!::
(10:24:09 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: checks Percy's stats, notes they are improving and there are no problems yet, eyes McKnight :: Shes doing well, she should be waking up soon.
(10:24:26 PM) TKirr: :: responds only with an eyebrow ::
(10:24:55 PM) CdrHarper: :: opens her eyes ::: Mmmrfph.
(10:25:14 PM) TKirr: (( those are noisy eyelids ))
(10:25:41 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Nods without returning the doctor's stare:: I'm sure. I just hope it's before I get the big call. There's not one damn thing I've liked about this mission once. Being here when she comes around will be something.
(10:25:45 PM) LtThors: :: in security assessing what's left over of Atlantis's security forces ::
(10:25:57 PM) RyanCarter: ::back in engineering doing what he was doing before... which was something::
(10:26:01 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: Moves toward Kate :: Hello there.
(10:26:19 PM) CdrHarper: :: squints :: Good morning... I guess.
(10:26:51 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Welcome back to the land of the living.
(10:27:10 PM) CdrHarper: I feel a lot better than the last time I woke up.
(10:27:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: eyes darting from the screen, to the readouts, and back ::
(10:27:49 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: hands Kate a cup of ice chips :: You'll probably be wanting these, dont eat them too fast and just let them melt.
(10:28:03 PM) Percy: :: Slowly, Percy begins to come to. At first, it's just a fluttering of the eyes and a nervous twitch of the digits. Then, as she began to actually recognize her conscious state, her eyes opened with a squint and she groaned.:: Uuugh...
(10:28:16 PM) CdrHarper: :: takes the ice chips :: Thanks...
(10:28:37 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Let me know if you need anything else, you'll be staying with us for a bit.
(10:28:53 PM) CdrHarper: :: frowns :: How long?
(10:29:15 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Looks down at her, his gaze level:: Hey there.
(10:29:49 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Hard to tell, you need to function internally correctly before you can walk out. Cant have you coming back with problems.
(10:29:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: *(AFK a moment)
(10:30:43 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: You can have all the ice chips you want. :: moves over to check Percy's stats ::
(10:31:28 PM) Percy: :: Looks over, and upon seeing McKnight there, manages a very groggy smile. She coughs momentarily before replying.:: Hey there...
(10:31:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (back.)
(10:31:48 PM) CharitySuite [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(10:31:49 PM) Percy: (WB)
(10:31:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Hi Charity!)
(10:31:53 PM) Percy: (Hey Gem!)
(10:32:00 PM) TKirr: (( Welcome! ))
(10:32:03 PM) CharitySuite: :-) Sorry
(10:32:03 PM) CdrHarper: :: eats an ice chip ::
(10:32:57 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Welcome back to the living, hows the pain? :: fills Percy's ice cup ::
(10:33:03 PM) TKirr: :: squints at some readings, seeing if she can deduce importance out of anything the computer's limited reasoning may have missed ::
(10:33:07 PM) ColDougMcKnight: So, next time you see a disruptor bolt coming your way, I hope you won't go thinking you can take it?
(10:34:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: gets up and walks over to helm, taps on the console :: Ten minutes.
(10:34:44 PM) Percy: :: First, she responds to Carre:: Heh, funny you should say that, dreams I had....oh, pain, yeah, I could probably use something for that.
(10:34:48 PM) CharitySuite: :: sliiiiiiides into SickBay, wearing a sweater over her tunic:: Ah declare, Ah's 'bout ta freeze mah assets off! How's th' payshunt, Boss?
(10:35:08 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: adjusts a few settings, hands the ice cup to McKnight :: She'll be wanting something to drink, she can have these.
(10:35:45 PM) Percy: :: Then she turns to McKnight, slightly quirked eyebrow:: I'm awake less than thirty seconds and you're already scolding me? I musta screwed up royal, then.
(10:36:13 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: They're both awake now and doing well, Percy's going to need some pain meds before too long.
(10:36:31 PM) CdrHarper: I'm hungry.
(10:36:50 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: moves away to make chart notes and order the pain hypo ::
(10:37:03 PM) CharitySuite: Ev'rbody wawnts more o' them, some days.
(10:37:46 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Hands over the ice cup, provided Percy's strong enough to hold it.:: You DID have us pretty worried. But now, you're as safe as any of us. We got the shields back, and just in case those bastards DO grace us with their presence again, we've set up transport inhibitors outside.
(10:38:04 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: snags a lime-green jello from the replicator :: Have some nice jello, we'll see how that goes.
(10:38:05 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Of course, they'd probably notice the artillery piece we've set up around the bend first.
(10:38:26 PM) CdrHarper: Jello? Can't I have some bacon?
(10:38:46 PM) CharitySuite: Bacon Jell-O/
(10:38:48 PM) CharitySuite: ?
(10:38:57 PM) CdrHarper: You have some?!
(10:39:00 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yes, we have that...
(10:39:18 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: replicates some nasty tan jello :: Here ya go.
(10:39:42 PM) CharitySuite: (Okay, bacon is all kinds of awesome, but bcon Jell-O would have to be NASTY)
(10:39:49 PM) CdrHarper: Thanks. ::eats hungrily::
(10:39:53 PM) TKirr: I'm sorry, Admiral, I'm just not picking up anything of use... ::still staring at the readings ::
(10:40:00 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: ...I dont recommend the roast beef jello its just....wrong.
(10:40:25 PM) CharitySuite: ::looks on:: Wawnt a tuhmayter ta go with that? Mebbe some lettuce?
(10:40:45 PM) CdrHarper: Yes, anything but jello.
(10:40:52 PM) Percy: :: With some struggle, she manages to hold it long enough to rest the cup on her chest after taking a couple of ice chips. She then rather determinedly lowers her hand to rest over his, giving him a meaningful look.:: I'm sorry...that I couldn't help with that. But I'm glad we're better prepared.
(10:41:18 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Sorry, jello is all thats on your list for now, except pudding. Would you like some pudding?
(10:41:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Then we're going in blind.
(10:41:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hopefully our plan worked.
(10:41:59 PM) TKirr: :: eases in a deep breath, letting it out slowly ::
(10:42:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: relieves the Ensign at helm and takes over ::
(10:42:28 PM) EnsCosby [] entered the room.
(10:43:09 PM) TKirr: :: peers at the back of Blackthorne's head
(10:43:13 PM) TKirr: ::
(10:43:13 PM) CdrHarper: I guess.
(10:43:34 PM) TKirr: :: thinks to herself Blackthorne must really be anxiously bored ::
(10:43:35 PM) EnsCosby: :: pushs the sickbay snack hover-cart :: I'll keep her in Jello's Doctor, any and all flavors.
(10:43:38 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Five minutes.
(10:43:52 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Percy, I'm making a list in my head of people I might blame for any of this. It goes in order, and I'm sorry to say, you're edged out by any number of people. The Klingon who shot you, for instance. Who, in case you were wondering, didn't end up as well.
(10:44:36 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Besides, you DID help. A CO is responsible for the actions of those who serve under them, remember. And they did a bangup job.
(10:45:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: All hands to battlestations
(10:45:09 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: nods at the Ensign :: Alrighty, just make sure you keep track of how many she has.
(10:45:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: !
(10:45:56 PM) EnsCosby: Sure enough Doc, there's always room for Jellooooo!
(10:46:42 PM) CdrHarper: Hm, any chocolatE?
(10:47:05 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (AFK again)
(10:47:32 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Frowns as the battle stations order comes over the comm.:: And now, it looks as though I need to go do MY bangup job.
(10:47:40 PM) EnsCosby: I've got milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, layered chocolate.
(10:48:41 PM) Percy: :: Percy looked a little less sad at that, but that warmth faded as she heard the call to battlestations.:: I guess you do. ::Her grip on his hand briefly tightened though as she looked him in the eye.:: But I don't want to see you in here in any less than one piece, you hear me? :: There was a clear not of worry in her voice::
(10:48:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (back)
(10:49:02 PM) Percy: (* any more than)
(10:49:05 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (WB)
(10:49:09 PM) Percy: (WB)
(10:49:18 PM) CdrHarper: :: looks up worried :: Dark.
(10:49:28 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: Heads Percy's direction with a hypo :: Shes going to rest for a bit anyway, she'll be feeling better in an hour or two. :: hypo's Percy ::
(10:49:43 PM) TKirr: :: sits rather stiffly, standing metaphorically at the ready ::
(10:50:10 PM) Percy: (*note. Wow, I'm not doing well tonight :-P)
(10:50:12 PM) EnsCosby: :: hands over a cup of dark chocolate pudding and a spork ::
(10:50:12 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::He returns the squeeze as tightly as he thinks safe, even as he rises:: Trust me, I have no intention of dying for something this damn stupid. There's been too much of that already, on both sides. You stay here and mend, and I'll come back to see you. That's the deal.
(10:50:44 PM) CdrHarper: :: distractedly eats the pudding ::
(10:51:18 PM) Percy: :: Percy nodded as she began feeling much sleepier from the hypo, and watching him go, muttered to herself.:: That's the deal...
(10:51:49 PM) LtThors: :: orders troops to battle stations and heavily arms himself ::
(10:52:11 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::With that, he turns to Carre:: You watch her close, doc. You hear me?
(10:52:40 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: smiles :: I will.
(10:53:42 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::One last nod, and he makes for the bridge. And through the magic of timeskip, he shortly thereafter steps out onto the bridge.:: Hope the party didn't start without me.
(10:54:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: One minute to the test site.
(10:54:23 PM) CharitySuite: ::chuckles:: Like she's gonna escape?
(10:54:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: How are the shields and weapons looking?
(10:54:54 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: pulls the tipping ice chip cup out of Percy's hand and puts it on the nearby table, adjusts input/output again, grins at Charity :: Well, people worry.
(10:55:06 PM) Percy: :: Zzzzzz::
(10:55:13 PM) CdrHarper: :: finishes the pudding ::
(10:55:55 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: heads to her desk and pulls a small case from her drawer, returns to stand by Kates bed. :: You going to be awake for awhile?
(10:56:04 PM) CharitySuite: ::laughs:: Well, it's funny how we's all popular when people are busted, but they cain't get out fast enough!
(10:56:07 PM) CdrHarper: Yeah, I think so. I don't feel too bad, all things considered.
(10:56:11 PM) Puddington left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(10:56:25 PM) SidRyan [] entered the room.
(10:57:17 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: puts the case where Kate can reach it :: I'm sure you'll take good care of this, its an antique but I trust you with it.
(10:57:25 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Takes over his console.:: Weapons are functioning within standard parameters. Shields, once raised...67%. Looks like engineering managed to squeeze a little extra juice out of the navigational deflector after all.
(10:57:58 PM) CdrHarper: :: curiously opens the case to find a Nintendo QS! :: Ohhhhh neat.
(10:58:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Excellent.
(10:58:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Atlantis coasts into the test site.
(10:58:19 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: grins :: Yeah, every game ever made for it too.
(10:58:46 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Well, we're here. Permission to initiate a full power up and see what we can see.
(10:59:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Yeah, no point in stealth anymore, bring all systems online.
(10:59:24 PM) TKirr: :: looks from one to the other ::
(10:59:25 PM) CdrHarper: :: turns it on and quickly finds Tetris ::
(10:59:46 PM) CdrHarper: Thanks Rox.

(10:59:55 PM) SidRyan: :: Sid, now keenly aware of the fight most likely to break out soon, made certain that both of her militia phasers were on her, and walked into the hangar adjusting her earring as she noted Chaka's presence.:: Hey. You ready for today?
(10:59:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: T'Kirr, full sensor sweep.
(11:00:11 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I need to run down to our makeshift stations and check on things, I figure that will keep you occupied for a bit.
(11:00:19 PM) TKirr: :: makes it so ::
(11:00:39 PM) TKirr: Sensors active, full sweep.
(11:00:39 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Nods:: Shields and weapons up. Transport inhibitors active around all major stations they hit last time.
(11:01:09 PM) CharitySuite: ::has a moment where she looks at her hands, wondering if she has her buncha-great-grandmaw's 'magic voodoo touch' with the sick::
(11:01:55 PM) CdrHarper: :: swears elaborately in Bajoran, something about an L-block ::
(11:01:56 PM) CharitySuite: ::then chuckles and dismisses it as coincidence::
(11:02:16 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: notices the exodus :: Hey Charity, I'm heading to the holo suite station, you want to go check things at the cargo bay station?
(11:02:37 PM) CharitySuite: WIll do, Boss. Lemme grab some refills.
(11:02:43 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Looks up from his console:: Three Klingon ships closing, Admiral! Looks like a K'tinga, and two B'rel Class Birds of Prey. No Vor'cha anywhere in sight.
(11:02:51 PM) CharitySuite: ::gets the meds and such from the replicator::
(11:02:57 PM) RyanCarter: ::making sure things run smoothly in engineering::
(11:03:11 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: They took the bait then. I'll be starting with evasive pattern delta one, let's confused the birds of prey.
(11:03:16 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I'd like to close or clear out one of them if possible and need a count of free beds.
(11:03:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Destroy the birds as quickly as you can, then we'll deal with the K'tinga.
(11:03:58 PM) LtThors: ::checks, rechecks and then checks again, making sure everyone is ready to roll::
(11:04:45 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Nods:: Acknowledged.
(11:05:02 PM) TKirr: I'm picking up what appears to be a bunker. It looks like three freighters spaced evenly around it. There's one somewhat near us. ::looks over to Blackthorne ::
(11:05:21 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: heads down the hall to the holo-suite trauma center, mutters :: We should just give this place a name we use it so much.
(11:05:40 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Freighters? Scan them more closely, see what they're carrying. :: breaks into Delta-one, swooping around a bird of prey to give McKnight the best shots ::
(11:06:13 PM) TKirr: Yes, sir. :: targets the nearest freighter and scans ::
(11:06:54 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::He dutifully opens fire with phasers, knowing it's a waste of torpedoes while the much nimbler craft are doing evasives of their own. He scores a few hits, but it
(11:06:57 PM) EnsCosby: :: hovers by Kate again :: More jello? More ice chips? Or jello pop?
(11:07:07 PM) CdrHarper: There has to be something else.
(11:07:33 PM) CharitySuite: (Milkshakes!)
(11:07:39 PM) CdrHarper: (oooooo!)
(11:08:07 PM) TKirr: There don't appear to be any lifesigns aboard the nearest freighter, but its core seems to have been modified... reinforced.
(11:08:18 PM) ColDougMcKnight: 's not easy work. And meanwhile, the ship rocks under a volley of type 6 disrupters and Ion torpedoes from the K'tinga, eliciting a frown from McKnight.:: All due respect sir, our shields being what they are, this is a losing strategy.
(11:08:20 PM) EnsCosby: :: checks the notes :: Nope, nothing solid. Jello, pudding, ice cream, soda, tea, that sort of thing.
(11:08:21 PM) CharitySuite: ::appears in the Cargo Bay, where it's a little cooler than usual, but the patients are covered warmly::
(11:08:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I'm starting to agree. Coming about on the K'tinga, full quantum torpedo spread.
(11:09:05 PM) CdrHarper: How about a chocolate milkshake?
(11:09:16 PM) CdrHarper: And some ice cream.
(11:09:17 PM) CharitySuite: :: starts a round of temperature checks, and everyone hopes she keeps the two thermometer types separated::
(11:09:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> It's definitely noticable that Atlantis is in combat, semi-regular shaking from weapons impacts are felt.
(11:10:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Reinforced for what? Scan the bunker.
(11:10:24 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: Checks the personnel working on the patients, finds the charge nurse :: How are things here? Do you have a patient count for me?
(11:10:52 PM) EnsCosby: That I can do! :: replicates up a frosty chocolate shake ::

(12:02:06 AM) DrRoxanneCarre: No, no those are separate things.
(12:02:06 AM) Percy: I accidentally hit the up button and it repeated my last statement.
(12:02:15 AM) Percy: As I was GOING to say.
(12:02:15 AM) CharitySuite: No, but I di have a recipe for crustless pumpkin pie, believe it or not :-)
(12:02:16 AM) DrRoxanneCarre: No, no those are separate things.
(12:02:19 AM) Percy: O.O Cheese grits??
(12:02:46 AM) Percy: If she could have cheese grits, I'm sure she would be happy. Because they are AWESOME.
(12:02:49 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: yumyumyumyum
(12:03:08 AM) LtThors: Especially with a little crumbled bacon on the top.
(12:03:09 AM) CdrHarper: I'm not sure what these "grits" are but I want some, with bacon.
(12:03:12 AM) Percy: Every time I go and visit my sister in Virginia, I hit up a Waffle House just for them.
(12:03:17 AM) DrRoxanneCarre: If they are that good then, probably not...
(12:03:25 AM) Percy: Oh my god. I have never had them with bacon. But that sounds AWESOME.
(12:03:40 AM) LtThors: It is.
(12:03:59 AM) Percy: Then again, I'd never tasted grits until about a year ago.
(12:04:15 AM) LtThors: !!
(12:04:17 AM) TKirr: Pfft you know what grits are!
(12:04:25 AM) CdrHarper: (That was an IC remark!)
(12:04:29 AM) CharitySuite: I've never tasted grits that I like. /ducks
(12:04:37 AM) TKirr: Right.. 'cause we're totally IC atm
(12:04:56 AM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yeah uncooked cornmeal...yuk.
(12:04:59 AM) TKirr: Grits with butter taste like rice
(12:05:37 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Grits are awesome :)
(12:05:52 AM) RyanCarter: I don't think I've ever had grits
(12:05:53 AM) DrRoxanneCarre: Okay, heading out. See yous next week.

(12:06:16 AM) DrRoxanneCarre left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(12:07:58 AM) CdrHarper left the room.
(12:09:16 AM) CharitySuite: Yes, I think everyone should go to a Ren Fair in full costume at least once.
(12:09:23 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: What.
(12:09:23 AM) CharitySuite: WHoops. Wrong window
(12:09:29 AM) TKirr: o.O
(12:09:43 AM) CharitySuite: Heh.
(12:09:44 AM) LtThors: ??
(12:09:47 AM) CharitySuite: Well, they should.
(12:10:21 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: I don't get ren faires.
(12:10:52 AM) LtThors: Why not?
(12:11:10 AM) CharitySuite: Heck, you of all people should get Ren Faires.
(12:11:26 AM) RyanCarter: I want to go for the turkey leg
(12:11:28 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: First, they're not about the renaissance, they're about the medieval period. Secondly, why would you pretend to be in the medieval period when that time in history sucked for everyone that wasn't royalty?
(12:11:31 AM) RyanCarter: I had one at the Maker Faire
(12:11:37 AM) RyanCarter: it was awesome
(12:11:56 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Monty Python summed it up: "How do you know he's the king? He's the only one not covered in shit!"
(12:12:06 AM) RyanCarter: what about the sausage wench?
(12:12:08 AM) CharitySuite: Well, most people pretend they are royalty, or wenches.
(12:12:22 AM) CharitySuite: It's a lot of fun
(12:12:49 AM) TKirr: I want sausage. =/
(12:12:49 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: It was just a terrible time in history. :-/
(12:13:05 AM) Percy: Pfah.
(12:13:12 AM) RyanCarter: but turkey leg
(12:13:12 AM) Percy: Says YE, sirrah.
(12:13:16 AM) CharitySuite: You're not portraying the infested vermin. Well, unless you really want to.
(12:13:16 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Unless I can go spread the plague.
(12:13:25 AM) Percy: *Is a proud singing pub wench*
(12:13:25 AM) TKirr: I think what attracts people to the medieval is the struggle
(12:13:35 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Bring out yer dead!
(12:13:38 AM) Percy: You could PRETEND to spread the plague.
(12:13:44 AM) Percy: I mean, it would be funny.
(12:13:59 AM) RyanCarter: start a flash mob of plague carrying zombies
(12:14:06 AM) CharitySuite: Cool ... dropping fake body parts as you go!
(12:14:07 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: braaaaaaaaaaaiiiiinnsssss
(12:14:11 AM) Percy: That would be awesome!
(12:14:25 AM) Percy: Speaking of which, I'm reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies right now.
(12:14:28 AM) Percy: It is FANTASTIC
(12:14:36 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Then Bruce Cambell would show up with a shotgun and ruin us. :(
(12:14:52 AM) TKirr: I'm gonna be scary for Halloween >.>
(12:15:04 AM) Percy: Oh?
(12:15:10 AM) Percy: I think I'm gonna be Sid :-P
(12:15:21 AM) CharitySuite: I told Rachel that we had our family portrait done this year in Ren Faire garb.
(12:15:28 AM) Percy: I have the earring! And the ridges would not be hard if I can get some dental wax.
(12:15:35 AM) Percy: And spirit gum, of course.
(12:15:59 AM) RyanCarter: the new Walking Dead is out, the new trade that is.
(12:16:04 AM) TKirr: I plan to freak some people out at work, they won't notice until I take off my sunglasses and they see white-iris contacts and fangs
(12:16:08 AM) RyanCarter: I don't read the individual comics
(12:16:12 AM) Percy: Oh NOICE.
(12:16:23 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Oh speaking of Zombies, house of the dead: Overkill on the Wii is fun as hell.

(12:17:09 AM) TKirr: I don't have any consoles =/
(12:17:25 AM) RyanCarter: and today I guess they announced the slim ps3
(12:17:27 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Tonight on PAPA'S PALACE OF PAIN!
(12:17:31 AM) Percy: Huh. I wonder if my roommate has that, then. He is the owner of the Wii in the house.
(12:17:43 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Oh yeah, the cheap PS3 is still $300 lol
(12:17:47 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Sony's out of their minds
(12:17:47 AM) RyanCarter: but Typing of the Dead on zombie game ever
(12:17:52 AM) Percy: *sigh* Oh, Sony.
(12:18:10 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: If he doesn't have it, it's cheap
(12:18:10 AM) Percy: I dunno. I personally love Left 4 Dead.
(12:18:14 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: like $25 now
(12:18:29 AM) RyanCarter: typing of the dead is Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing with Zombies
(12:18:38 AM) Percy: Oh wow.
(12:18:42 AM) Percy: That's...interesting.
