(10:37:20 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I know a couple good chocolate shops... :: grins at the dragon :: A couple even sell in bulk!

(10:41:27 PM) LtKuari: :: looks up at nothing, noticing the changes in the ship, before returning her attention to Carre :: Well, I miss Gencodia. I haven't flown so much in a while, and I can tell I was out of shape.
(10:41:45 PM) CdrTKirr: :: glances sidelong at Blackthorne ::
(10:42:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: returns the glance with a half smile :: Transfer to external power once the umbilical is in place.

(10:59:27 PM) LtKuari: :: cocks her head ::
(10:59:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: No, like your jammies and comfy non-starfleet clothes.
(11:00:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: pats the chair arm lovingly and heads to the TL ::
(11:00:50 PM) LtKuari: :: stares at Carre blankly, her unmoving large eyes somewhat discomfiting ::

(11:01:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: once they're in the TL :: Have a chance to review Carre's brochure?
(11:02:55 PM) LtKuari: :: glances at the wall, her head still not moving :: Do I... need any?
(11:03:30 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Not really, we're all girls. If you wanna sleep au natural, its fine with me.

(11:04:07 PM) LtKuari: :: seems satisfied and starts moving :: Okay, I'm ready then!
(11:04:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Well, we'll find a nice place or two, I'm sure.

(11:07:45 PM) CdrHarper: :: shows up the TR with the night bag over her shoulder, dressed in jeans, sneakers, and some hippie-looking tunic that is probably Risan in origin ::
(11:08:05 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Well if this isn't evidence that I need more leave, I don't know what is.
(11:08:23 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Ready ladies?
(11:08:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: gives coordinates to transport guy ::
(11:09:02 PM) LtKuari: Ready!
(11:09:13 PM) CdrHarper: Yes. Translating lost languages is fun, but I have missed civilization.
(11:10:00 PM) CdrTKirr: :: spies the object of Ian's attention over her shoulder :: That would depend on one's perspective, I'm sure.
(11:10:06 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: is transported to her usual suite with the girls :: Ahhh...home sweet, away home.
(11:10:28 PM) CdrHarper: Did you bring the video games? :: grins ::
(11:10:48 PM) LtKuari: :: looks around with a couple shifts of her head :: Looks comfy!
(11:11:05 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Naw, I keep a stash here. They store them for me.
(11:11:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: It's hard to get away. :: starts shoving a few things into the bag ::
(11:11:56 PM) CdrTKirr: And you wish to more often. :: carefully folds a silky nightgown into her pack ::
(11:12:12 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I don't know that I do, to be honest.
(11:12:22 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Thanks, I have the room over here, Kate usually uses that room :: points :: that leaves either of the other two for you to choose. One has a big bed, the other two smaller ones, its whatever you're into.
(11:12:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Everything I want, is here.
(11:12:58 PM) CdrHarper: :: throws her bag into her room with an air of familiarity ::
(11:13:10 PM) CdrTKirr: :: brightens, giving Ian an affectionate glance ::
(11:13:17 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Oh and anything you want from room service just let me know or give 'em a call. They deliver. :: huge smile ::
(11:13:54 PM) LtKuari: What kinds of things? :: checks out the rooms ::
(11:14:10 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: calls the front desk to let them know she and her guests have arrived ::
(11:14:46 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: hands Kuari a menu :: If its not on there we can still probably get it.
(11:15:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Though, I admit, traveling with just the two of will be nice. No interruptions from work.
(11:15:38 PM) LtKuari: :: takes the menu and sits, studying it with crossed eyes, mumbling :: I'll take the big bed.
(11:15:40 PM) CdrHarper: :: has the menu memorized :: Try the bacon platter.
(11:15:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Oh that reminds me, Kuari how do you feel about water? Like, not like?
(11:16:28 PM) CdrTKirr: Agreed. :: saunters into the wash room with her pack ::
(11:16:47 PM) LtKuari: :: looks up from the menu :: Like!
(11:18:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: does likewise, throws his toiletries into the bag, and zips it shut ::
(11:18:19 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Well then.... :: pulls the dragon behind her, as much as possible :: ...this is something you're going to like.
(11:18:38 PM) LtKuari: :: goes with it, a curious expression on her face ::
(11:19:40 PM) CdrHarper: :: watches with an amused look ::
(11:19:45 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: opens the door to a double width lap pool with a 15 person hot tub situated at one end. With assorted greenery for sound dampening :: You'll love this room then.
(11:20:39 PM) LtKuari: :: sniffs as soon as the doors waft open and takes it all in :: Swimming!
(11:21:04 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Its not totally huge but it beats the tub.
(11:22:02 PM) CdrHarper: Sounds like a good idea!
(11:22:33 PM) LtKuari: :: looks up at Carre :: Now?
(11:22:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits down at the terminal on his desk and writes out a few orders ::
(11:22:43 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Hey, we could have dinner and a movie in here, Kate?
(11:22:55 PM) CdrHarper: In the pool?
(11:23:13 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: In out, whatever. Not like I have to clean it up.
(11:23:28 PM) CdrTKirr: :: finishes packing and stands thinking, checking through a mental list to make sure she's remembered everything ::
(11:23:33 PM) CdrHarper: I like it!
(11:24:01 PM) LtKuari: :: looks on, tail wiggling ::
(11:24:01 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Okay then, lets call room service and pick a movie.
(11:25:25 PM) CdrHarper: :: opens the catalog on the wall-screen and flips through it ::
(11:26:01 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Whatchu want to eat Kuari? I'm having the club platter, Kates having the bacon platter. I can order a couple of salads for ya. And of course the chocolate course follows directly after the main course.
(11:27:19 PM) CdrHarper: Can I get a side of bacon with that?
(11:27:27 PM) LtKuari: Salad sounds good. With lots of beans and nuts. I need protein.
(11:28:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I need to see the Colonel before we can depart.
(11:29:02 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods readily in acceptance ::
(11:29:12 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: starts typing in the room service order, bacon & club platter, 2 family style green salads, a fruit salad, veggie salad, the vegan salad, extra bacon, a large chocolate cake, cheesecake, gallon of ice cream and various soft drinks. ASAP ::
(11:29:34 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Well that should get us started...
(11:30:31 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Kuari, dont be shy if you want something more be sure to speak up. I dont want your tummy rumbles waking me up in the night.
(11:30:37 PM) CdrHarper: :: looks through the movies :: What is Assablanca? Never heard of that one.
(11:31:25 PM) LtKuari: :: crosses the room towards her bedroom :: I don't know movies very well.
(11:31:33 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: blushes slightly :: I think thats part of Johnnies collection. You might want to skip past that section.
(11:31:46 PM) CdrHarper: Wha...? OH. HAHAHA!
(11:32:23 PM) LtKuari: :: jumps from the doorway onto the bed and bounces several times for the heck of it ::
(11:32:59 PM) CdrHarper: :: Has no real sense of modesty to speak of, so she's in no way embarassed :: Hay, here's one called Dragonheart. It's old, but maybe Kuari would like it?
(11:33:53 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yeah its pretty good, the dragon looks pretty good. Wonder if she would find that dragon attractive.
(11:34:11 PM) LtKuari: :: peeks from around the door :: What dragon?
(11:34:32 PM) CdrHarper: :: looks at it :: I have no idea. :: points :: That one.
(11:34:54 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Get the Captain's Yacht ready and meet me there?
(11:35:04 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Oh the one in this old movie. :: flips a switch and one end of the pool lights up with the opening credits for the movie ::
(11:37:00 PM) CdrTKirr: Yes, *Admiral*. I'll get the door for you as well. :: failing poker face ::
(11:37:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: pauses the movie :: Someone let room service in, while I change into my suit.

(11:38:47 PM) CdrHarper: Yeah, me too. :: heads into her room ::
(11:39:37 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: pauses to catch the look on Kuari's face as they wheel in 4 laden carts, including several troughs of salad ::
(11:40:39 PM) LtKuari: (( Okay that's funny, been just sitting in EQ and some guy named Karui's hailing a NPC over and over ))
(11:40:57 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (( hahaha ))

(11:42:20 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: DeliveryGuy> Bob, at your service ma'am.
(11:43:19 PM) LtKuari: Thanks, Bob! I'd invite you to stay, but it's something called a 'girls thing' so I don't think you can. Have a good day, though!
(11:43:33 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: DeliveryGuy> If you could just let us know where you want this we'll get out of your way.
(11:43:51 PM) LtKuari: :: points to the pool :: That way, I think.
(11:44:38 PM) CdrHarper: :: emerges from her room in a green bikini and directs the food into the pool room :: Right this way, gentlemen!

(11:48:12 PM) CdrTKirr: I'm sure you wouldn't want to keep the Colonel waiting.
