(10:03:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hi again
(10:03:18 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Hey. Again.
(10:03:33 PM) ColDougMcKnight: So, how long do you want to wait?
(10:03:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: 15-20?
(10:03:52 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Fair enough.
(10:05:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Have you noticed the new Site Archives feature?
(10:05:43 PM) DrRoxanneCarre [] entered the room.
(10:06:00 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Hellos!
(10:06:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya Doc
(10:06:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I was just asking the colonel here if he's noticed the new Site Archives feature, so I'll ask you the same!
(10:06:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: What you want me to read?
(10:07:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Just the fact that it's all easily accessible and full text searchable now.
(10:07:30 PM) ColDougMcKnight: In answer to your question, I had not noticed this.
(10:07:38 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Dig it! I'm a bit proud. :)
(10:08:31 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Wow, impressive. "Alarm clock" did, in fact, lead me right to my very first Atlantis log.
(10:08:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ::: goes to search that ::
(10:10:05 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I see why that's a memorable line!
(10:10:19 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Yeah, stuck with me somehow.
(10:10:53 PM) ColDougMcKnight: You know, in that I am very grateful for Cervantes. I can look back on an old Atlantis log and see places where I'd probably choose to write it differently now.
(10:11:07 PM) ColDougMcKnight: But some of my earliest Cervantes stuff just made me cringe later on.
(10:11:30 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I still have the very first log I wrote for any sim ever, somewhere. It was awful.
(10:11:38 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: >.>
(10:11:43 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: <.<
(10:11:57 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: *cough*
(10:12:18 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Although that plot was fun...right up until Rachel decided to torture the shit out of my character, then go all Picard on the computer that did it.
(10:12:26 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Hahaha!
(10:12:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Ugh, that ship.
(10:13:25 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I still miss some of the guys I wrote with then. Like Cory. I wonder how he's doing occasionally.
(10:15:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: All I know is that he and Megs split up, but Gem still talks to him I think.
(10:16:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Text from Liz, she'll be 15 minutes or so
(10:16:27 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Okay.
(10:16:40 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I have time to hunt down my nasal spray then.
(10:16:54 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Huge storm coming in, just ask my head.
(10:18:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: My ex-BIL threw an ice cube at my butt (how he missed THAT, I'll never figure out) and hit my nose. Ever since, my head can tell the weather.
(10:19:03 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Right.
(10:20:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: That's...pretty shitty aim, I must admit.
(10:22:28 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yeah, he was calling himself a hunting guide. I mentioned he had bad aim
(10:26:34 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Perhaps he could help with the mindset!

(10:28:00 PM) CdrHarper [] entered the room.
(10:31:28 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I really AM liking this text search feature. I'm remembering that I was actually proud of some of these logs it's leading me to.
(10:31:41 PM) CdrHarper: I'm glad!
(10:32:05 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: It'll certainly help with finding the obscure things you have a tiny bit of memory of.
(10:33:01 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I have a tiny memory.

(10:39:48 PM) CdrTKirr: Hey guys. Haven't started yet?
(10:40:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hi! Nope.
(10:40:53 PM) CdrTKirr: I'm thirty in like... an hour and 20
(10:41:01 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: We started reminicing (sp)
(10:41:11 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Oh no fair, you said it was today.
(10:41:11 PM) CdrTKirr: Ah, well at least you weren't bored.
(10:41:23 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I remember 30...mostly.
(10:41:25 PM) CdrTKirr: Pfft well it's TONIGHT, doesn't that count
(10:41:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Before or after midnight, hmmm?
(10:41:45 PM) CdrTKirr: 12:03 or something...
(10:42:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Oh, you couldn't just show up right on the hour, nooooo.
(10:42:05 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Grats on the big 30...I liked my 30s.
(10:42:10 PM) CdrTKirr: Or I think 12:01.. and my bro was 12:05
(10:42:27 PM) CdrTKirr: Heh, thanks. Maybe I'll finally grow up.
(10:42:35 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Naw
(10:42:43 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I'm over 50 and still havent grown up.
(10:42:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Didn't work for me :(
(10:43:04 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yes, say it now....
(10:43:10 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: "Carre is old!"
(10:43:28 PM) CdrTKirr: Remember who you're talking to...
(10:43:37 PM) CdrTKirr: We've known you for a while now. =P
(10:43:46 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Oh right, you knew that.
(10:43:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: lol
(10:43:53 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Oh yes.
(10:43:58 PM) CdrTKirr: Ugh I'm so stuffed... I had something called Captain Jack's Buried Treasure.
(10:44:11 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Better give it back to him.
(10:44:20 PM) CdrTKirr: He wouldn't want it. =X
(10:44:39 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: So not touching that...
(10:44:56 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I wouldn't either!
(10:45:42 PM) CdrTKirr: lol
(10:46:00 PM) CdrTKirr: But no, it was like... an ice cream cake with fudge, Oreo, etc
(10:46:06 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Ohhhhhhh.
(10:46:34 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Geez, I had salad for dinner and had to fight through the chocolate cake to get the salad dressing.
(10:46:54 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I was pretty proud of myself.
(10:47:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I had three steaks.
(10:47:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Well, strip steaks.
(10:48:07 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: So you ate nekkid steaks?
(10:48:24 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Of course, they wouldn't be really edible with clothes on.
(10:48:38 PM) CdrTKirr: Stringy.
(10:48:50 PM) CdrTKirr: Tough on the outside.
(10:49:09 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I like my dressed with some 'shrooms.
(10:49:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: No fungus allowed.
(10:49:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: *drool*
(10:50:38 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I gave up chocolate for Lent.
(10:50:49 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: /sympathy
(10:50:59 PM) CdrTKirr: Lol we were just talking about that at dinner.
(10:52:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, let's get going.
(10:52:30 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Short sim tonight, but still a sim :)
(10:52:37 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Sure.

(10:55:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: If you have any questions about that, then I fear for you.
(10:56:20 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Shore
(10:57:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Well, we'll figure out the particulars as we go.
(10:57:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM

(11:05:06 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I'll go, that way at least I'll stop grazing.
(11:06:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Let's assume it's the next day)
(11:06:57 PM) LtKuari: :: lies sprawled on the floor on her side, dog-style and oblivious ::
(11:07:13 PM) CdrHarper: What do you think, Kuari?
(11:09:08 PM) LtKuari: :: perks an ear at her name, but otherwise remains motionless ::
(11:09:18 PM) LtKuari: :: grunts noncommitally ::
(11:09:44 PM) CdrHarper: Maybe she drank enough last night.
(11:09:58 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I hear they have a chocolate drink called a ski lift, I dont think shes tried one of those yet.
(11:10:14 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: grins at the hung over dragon ::
(11:10:33 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: McKnight is currently having the most fun anyone typically does while standing in a line. Because it's a ticket line! For admission to Vinland Station's newest attraction: An old style movie hall.
(11:10:50 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (And when I say old style, I mean like this: )
(11:11:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Comfier seats, though.)
(11:11:20 PM) CdrTKirr: (JFK? Wait...)
(11:12:37 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Lets go, we can be vegetables later.
(11:12:54 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: ((Man that is an awesome theater, dual arm rests!!!)
(11:13:05 PM) CdrHarper: :: hesitantly reaches down to poke the dragon in the side ::
(11:13:29 PM) CdrHarper: :: wary from being killed by dragons 534,249,342,690 times in her MMO ::

(11:15:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: In between popping Junior Mints in his mouth. :: Whatever, long as it's not a football movie. I hate sports movies.
(11:15:12 PM) CdrHarper: :: ... runs into her room to freshen up a bit ::
(11:15:43 PM) LtKuari: :: turns her head questioningly to Carre ::
(11:15:45 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: C'mon dragon, lets go see the sights, even if its just the inside of another bar.
(11:15:48 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Random line goer > Dude, you're supposed to save those for the movie.
(11:16:03 PM) LtKuari: :: rolls onto her feet and stretches, this time cat-style ::
(11:16:07 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Yeah, well your face is supposed those for the movie.
(11:16:12 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Ferengi Ticket Scalper> Front row! Get your front row, right here!
(11:16:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: RLG>, that's the exact opposite of the point I'm trying to make.
(11:16:53 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: is glad the suite is uncommonly large ::
(11:16:59 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Oh, good point then. Here's another one. I can kill you with my thumb.
(11:17:12 PM) ColDougMcKnight: RLG> I thought it's supposed to be the pinky.
(11:17:22 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Please tell me who you are so I can go ahead and hate you a lot.
(11:18:27 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Hurry up Kate, lock the door on your way out, meet us at the elevator since the dragon is actually mobile now.
(11:18:51 PM) CdrHarper: :: pops back out :: I am ready!

(11:19:09 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: heads toward the elevator (or whatever its called in hotels) ::
(11:19:45 PM) CdrHarper: :: follows along :: That pool is amazing.
(11:20:31 PM) LtKuari: I haven't done that much swimming in a long time.
(11:20:32 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yeah, it is. Looks like we'll have to call in a couple of massage therapists for Kuari though.
(11:21:41 PM) CdrHarper: Ohhhh, now that is an idea.
(11:21:49 PM) CdrHarper: :: as they enter the TL :: Promenade.
(11:22:06 PM) LtKuari: A what therapist?
(11:22:47 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: They rub all your muscles, helps them relax. Sometimes they even walk on them to get them to loosen up.
(11:23:09 PM) ColDougMcKnight: RLG> Um...Lieutenant Polk, Ronkonkoma. And you?
(11:23:25 PM) LtKuari: :: brightens :: Ooh I know what you're talking about! It didn't translate.
(11:24:05 PM) LtKuari: I am loosening though... I've just not been moving for, um, hours.
(11:24:20 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Knew he should have worn some variation on his uniform. But how often does he get a chance to walk around in jeans and a (Admittedly basic Starfleet blue) t-shirt? ::
(11:24:55 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Haw, Colonel McKnight, Atlantis.
(11:25:08 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Polk> Oh! Sorry, sir, I just-

(11:27:51 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Looks like something new, lets walk by and see what it is.

(11:28:36 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: "Absent-mindedly" allows his voice to rise a little higher :: Also, I'm pretty sure movie theaters don't have assigned seating.

(11:31:40 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: watches the disgusting Ferengi, notes where he came from :: Hey, there's McKnight, we can ask him what it is, and why he's standing in line.

(11:32:49 PM) CdrHarper: :: gestures at the grand entrance :: What is all of this?
(11:33:19 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: And why are you standing in line?
(11:34:35 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Grins :: Because they don't let you in without a ticket. I'm assuming they have movies on Risa, right?
(11:35:19 PM) CdrHarper: :: looks confused ::: Movies? Well yes we have movies, of course, but this - all of this! - is just to show a movie?!
(11:36:44 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: notices a random guy in line gaping at her friend, and glares at him ::
(11:37:16 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Oh, not just a movie. The movie experience. It's a bona fide theater. And I mean a theater like they had when movies were like as not in sepia tone, and had a B feature. Real old school stuff. You can find places like this back home, but to find out out here...hell of a thing.
(11:37:48 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I even hear they employ a couple techs to jazz up Federation news service reports in the style of an old news reel!
(11:38:13 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (one out here)
(11:38:30 PM) CdrHarper: Wow, how about that.
(11:39:19 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Ladies, we gonna watch a movie or shop and drink?
(11:39:44 PM) ColDougMcKnight: You should check it out, if not today, then at least before we leave the station. You have to get here early if you care about having your pick of seats...but the place is also pretty darn big.
(11:39:45 PM) CdrHarper: :: shrugs :: What do you two want to do?
(11:40:10 PM) CdrHarper: Well that Ferengi was selling front row seats, yes?
(11:40:37 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: laughs :: Whatever he was selling it wasnt what he said it was.
(11:40:47 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Tries to hold back a laugh :: I guess he did say that.
(11:41:11 PM) CdrHarper: Well, of course, never trust a Ferengi.
(11:41:21 PM) LtKuari: I want to stay!
(11:41:42 PM) LtKuari: :: undulates tail ::
(11:41:44 PM) CdrHarper: That is fine with me, Roxy?
(11:42:03 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Sure, but you're in charge of getting the dragon up when its over.
(11:42:08 PM) CdrHarper: (Ending at 15 til, btw)
(11:42:10 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Grins:: Then grab a place at the back, and get whatever appendage you use for print scanning ready.
