(20:57:58) The topic for #USSAtlantis is: The ground team has used the confusion to break into Bartanis's compound, while the flotilla and fighter squadron are certainly seeing why we need the defense grid taken offline ASAP.

(20:58:40) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(20:58:47) LtJGAlexisWright: lo
(20:59:15) LtJGAlexisWright: Happy New year :)
(20:59:53) VAdmBlackthorne: Happy New Year!
(21:00:24) LtJorvanTav [] entered the room.
(21:00:41) LtJorvanTav: Hiya
(21:00:43) LtJGAlexisWright: 'lo, Tav, Happy New Year
(21:01:19) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(21:03:25) LtCmdrBusard [] entered the room.
(21:03:32) ColDougMcKnight [] entered the room.
(21:03:48) LtJGAlexisWright: hihi Percy & McKnight
(21:03:49) VAdmBlackthorne: Evening you two
(21:04:00) ColDougMcKnight: Evening. And Happy New Year.
(21:04:07) VAdmBlackthorne: Back atcha!
(21:04:27) LtJGAlexisWright: What he said :)
(21:05:11) LtJorvanTav: This is Liz... I was making dinner, he didn't bother to log me in. =X
(21:05:28) VAdmBlackthorne: Fail
(21:05:36) VAdmBlackthorne: Everyone knows you log the highest rank in first. :v
(21:07:23) VAdmBlackthorne: Carre will not be with us tonight as it is her husband's birfday.
(21:07:45) LtJGAlexisWright: A likely story.
(21:08:07) VAdmBlackthorne: (Mike, IM)
(21:08:32) VAdmBlackthorne: So would y'all rather continue the plot or have a belated holiday party?
(21:09:12) LtJGAlexisWright: I'm all about some plot, personally, but count me as like half a vote
(21:09:12) LtJorvanTav: Happy new y ear, everyone. Good to finally have a night where I can join back in. Sorry about all the time I have been gone.
(21:09:27) CdrTKirr [] entered the room.
(21:09:42) LtJorvanTav: By the way, that is new year, not "Spanish and" ear
(21:10:11) CdrHarper [] entered the room.
(21:10:20) LtJGAlexisWright: But I wanted to have a happy ear :(
(21:10:37) LtJorvanTav: I hope your ears are happy. Just not Spanish and ears
(21:10:39) LtJGAlexisWright: feliz navidad y ojo?
(21:10:48) LtJGAlexisWright: wait, that's christmas
(21:10:48) LtJorvanTav: Oui'
(21:11:00) LtCmdrBusard: Hey guys.
(21:11:46) VAdmBlackthorne: So, sim as usual or belated party? Up to y'all. :)
(21:12:06) LtJorvanTav: I like plot. I am not around enough to get it anymore :(
(21:12:07) CdrTKirr: Hm... work or play... let me think...
(21:12:31) LtJorvanTav: Of course, if we have a party, my goal will be to get Kuari drunk
(21:12:36) LtKuari [] entered the room.
(21:12:47) LtKuari: O_O
(21:12:59) LtJGAlexisWright: I've been power-watching Star Trek series on Netflix to remember stuff and be better at Lexy
(21:13:00) CdrTKirr: :: turns around ::
(21:13:07) LtKuari: :: turns around ::
(21:13:09) LtKuari left the room.
(21:13:14) LtJGAlexisWright: lulz.
(21:13:30) CdrTKirr: Yay for Trek-a-thons
(21:14:26) VAdmBlackthorne: I've seen one person with an opinion.
(21:14:38) CdrTKirr: I think mine was quite clear!
(21:14:41) LtJGAlexisWright: I'm glad I'm doing it, I think I gave up on Voyager too early the first time around.
(21:14:44) LtJorvanTav: I guess Kuari is gone. That means a party is of no interest for me.
(21:14:52) LtCmdrBusard: Ugh, sorry. I just email from my boss that is making me seriously consider quitting my job. So...I'd go party, personally.
(21:15:04) LtJorvanTav: Change my vote.
(21:15:07) CdrTKirr: Oh no, I'm sorry. =/
(21:15:21) VAdmBlackthorne: :-/
(21:15:38) LtCmdrBusard: It's okay. He's just trying to turn my job into something I didn't sign up for.
(21:15:52) VAdmBlackthorne: Well, we've been out of it for a few weeks because of felicitas, so maybe we should have the party to get back into the swing of things.
(21:16:10) LtJGAlexisWright: I must reverse my opinion because I'm afraid of the wrath of Percy.
(21:16:25) LtJGAlexisWright: :: cowers dutifully ::
(21:16:30) ColDougMcKnight: I'd be fine with a party.
(21:17:41) VAdmBlackthorne: First thing's first - I posted a log at almost the last minute for December, so that gives us.... for the first time since 2008, and even that year was the only time since 2004....
(21:17:48) VAdmBlackthorne: A log every month for the whole year of 2011!
(21:17:58) LtCmdrBusard: Yay!
(21:17:59) ColDougMcKnight: Woo!
(21:18:02) LtJGAlexisWright: :: cheers ::
(21:18:41) VAdmBlackthorne: Congratulations and thank you to everyone who wrote, which is most of you!
(21:18:43) LtJorvanTav: That is quite cool. So let's go for two logs each month this year.
(21:18:48) LtJorvanTav: I will
(21:19:09) CdrTKirr: Congratulations on that achievement. ^_~
(21:19:25) VAdmBlackthorne: There were a few months last year with two at least, but it's always nice to have to pick among several for the LoTM award.
(21:19:56) CdrTKirr: Otherwise it's kinda pointless =X
(21:19:57) LtJorvanTav: Wha'd the average come out to per month?
(21:20:17) VAdmBlackthorne: I don't have those numbers, unfortunately. Probably can get it counting highlights and journals.
(21:20:45) CdrTKirr: Highlights are cool.
(21:21:02) VAdmBlackthorne: Yes, yes they are.
(21:21:19) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, for the party....
(21:21:29) CdrTKirr: No attenshun for party
(21:21:36) LtJorvanTav: Can you order Kuari to come back in the room?
(21:21:39) VAdmBlackthorne: Being that the plot's in an uninterruptible state, this will be completely out of timeline.
(21:22:08) LtJGAlexisWright: Sir, sensors are indicating a temporal anomaly in wherever the party is!
(21:22:09) CdrTKirr: Mm...
(21:22:22) LtKuari [] entered the room.
(21:22:41) CdrTKirr: Temporal anomaly, known as a leap year?
(21:23:03) VAdmBlackthorne: So we'll just say Mele Kalikimaka and have a nice warm holiday party in Lost Harbor!
(21:23:23) LtJGAlexisWright: Um. What's a Lost Harbor? >>;
(21:23:25) LtJorvanTav: Do we have a party theme?
(21:23:57) VAdmBlackthorne: Lost Harbor is the persistent 1930s Pacific Island simulation in the holodeck.
(21:24:07) ColDougMcKnight: never sat in on a Lost Harbor sim? Wow.
(21:24:11) LtJGAlexisWright: Right-o.
(21:24:16) VAdmBlackthorne: The theme is LUAU! And holidays.
(21:24:22) LtJorvanTav: I am about to have my Hawaiian cherry popped
(21:24:32) ColDougMcKnight: I don't know if you ever saw Tale Spin, but when I was contributing ideas on my end, one inspiration in my head was Cape Suzette.
(21:24:33) CdrTKirr: Hm.. did we create it right after her?
(21:24:36) LtJorvanTav: Oh, you meant Wright
(21:24:45) CdrTKirr: Maybe she's the reason we created it. I mean... err
(21:24:55) VAdmBlackthorne: Nah, LH dates to 2008
(21:24:58) LtJGAlexisWright: Possible, I am traumatizing
(21:25:03) VAdmBlackthorne: Believe it or not
(21:25:03) LtJorvanTav: Well then, Wright's gonna have... never mind
(21:25:13) CdrTKirr: At least someone can keep track of the dates...
(21:25:22) LtJGAlexisWright: I think I just missed it. All the parties I took part in were in the bar thing with the bartender dude guy.
(21:25:39) CdrTKirr: Uh.. Ten Forward? He visits Lost Harbour parties, too.
(21:25:42) ColDougMcKnight: I actually WAS surprised not long ago to look back at an old log and see it mentioned. But 4 years...impressive.
(21:25:50) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: LUAU!
(21:25:52) CdrTKirr: Err... Harbor, damn it. Too much British writing.
(21:26:09) VAdmBlackthorne: (speaking of the bartender, go read my log! :) )
(21:26:20) LtJGAlexisWright: <-- totally read it
(21:26:30) LtKuari: :: attempts to put on a grass skirt but shimmies out of it and tosses it away with her tail ::
(21:26:37) VAdmBlackthorne: (comments are appreciated. :)
(21:26:42) VAdmBlackthorne: OK then, here we go...
(21:26:44) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN LUAU
(21:26:46) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN LUAU
(21:26:50) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN LUAU
(21:27:10) LtKuari: ((<~Totally read it, too))
(21:27:19) LtKuari: ((But *I* commented.))
(21:27:27) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> :: quickly, but with the efficiency of a well-practiced hand, making all sorts of tropical drinks ::
(21:28:35) LtKuari: :: looks around expectantly for a coconut ::
(21:28:37) LtJorvanTav: :: walks over to the replicator :: One Hawaiian shirt, loud. Tropical flower and surf board print.
(21:29:20) LtJGAlexisWright: :: enters the party wearing something casual yet feminine, with a large red hibiscus flower tucked behind her left ear, carrying a large covered tray ::
(21:30:34) ColDougMcKnight: :: Stands in his quarters, stroking his beard contemplatively as he peers into his closet, considering his collection of Hawaiian shirts. :: Hmmm. Blue with fish and sailboats, or yellow and orange with waves and palm trees?
(21:30:49) LtCmdrBusard: :: Walks in with traditional Hawaiian apparel. That is to say, a flamboyantly floral bikini and a gauzy wrap around her lower half. And flip flops. She wasn't sure who invented them, but whoever did was a GENIUS.::
(21:31:06) LtJGAlexisWright: Oh! Thank you! :: leans down and allows the holodeck character to drape a colorful lei around her neck ::
(21:31:11) ColDougMcKnight: Hobbes> Meow.
(21:31:25) LtJorvanTav: :: checks the settings on the replicator :: +Computer+ Computer, I asked for a Hawaiian shirt, not a coconut shell bra.
(21:31:30) CdrTKirr: ((Until you get a flip flop stuck under the clutch of a manual transmission >_<))
(21:32:14) ColDougMcKnight: Good point. We just finished a fight. Might as well go as loud and cheery as possible. Orange and yellow it is.
(21:33:46) LtJGAlexisWright: :: makes her way to the bar, nodding at familiar faces, and sets the tray on the bar in front of Jack, uncovering it with a flourish :: Hot Chocolate Buttered Rum Balls! Try one!
(21:34:04) CdrTKirr: :: attempts to put work behind her as she enters the holodeck, wearing an emerald-green silky dress cut just above her knees in a diagonal frill, and accepts the lei with a silent nod of acceptance ::
(21:34:13) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> Ohhhh, thank you for bringing those, Alexis. :: pops one in his mouth :: Mm!
(21:34:46) VAdmBlackthorne: :: shortly behind T'Kirr in a Magnum PI Jungle Bird Hawaiian shirt and a straw hat, with board shorts ::
(21:35:01) CdrTKirr: ((So has Hawaiian radio playing))

(21:35:41) LtJGAlexisWright: :: nods to herself :: It's a Wright family tradition for the holidays. That recipe's been handed down for the last four hundred years! I managed to adapt it fairly well to a replicator during my years at the Academy.
(21:36:49) CdrTKirr: :: takes another look at Ian over her shoulder, offering him a raised eyebrow ::
(21:37:12) LtJorvanTav: :: After changing into this (, Tav leaves his quarters and makes his way to the Holodeck.
(21:37:17) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> Well done!
(21:37:24) VAdmBlackthorne: :: gets leid ::
(21:37:49) LtKuari: :: totally gets distracted by all the bright colors everyone's wearing ::
(21:38:25) ColDougMcKnight: :: As usual, adds a pair of light khakis and some sandals before making his way to the turbolift. He's striding into the holodeck a couple minutes later. He makes his way to the bar, of course, but he plans his approach such that he meets Percy on the way, stopping and giving a quick kiss to the top of her head. ::
(21:38:54) LtJGAlexisWright: I tweaked the recipe a little bit this year. Oh! :: sees people coming in the door and picks up her tray with a parting wink at Jack :: Commander, Admiral, would you care to try a Hot Chocolate Buttered Rum Ball? They're a Wright family holiday tradition! :: smiles her most winning smile ::
(21:39:06) ColDougMcKnight: I'll be having some of your special punch, Jack. And maybe give it just a shade more rum. Enough to bring out the flavor, you understand.
(21:39:07) LtKuari: :: notices McKnight enter and approaches, sitting nearby to watch the bar area ::
(21:39:12) LtJorvanTav: :: walks into the Holodeck and eyes this scene he's heard so much about. Noticing who all is there, he makes his way to the bar and waits for Jack ::
(21:39:50) CdrTKirr: :: notices Tav ::
(21:39:56) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> Sure thing. :: pours a bit more in behind the bar ::
(21:40:03) LtKuari: ((That was so me... )) ::notices Tav::
(21:40:27) VAdmBlackthorne: Hmm... :: selects a rum ball :::
(21:40:40) CdrTKirr: :: peers around Ian at the treats curiously ::
(21:40:46) LtJGAlexisWright: :: nods encouragingly ::
(21:41:25) VAdmBlackthorne: :: eats it :: Oh that's good.
(21:42:00) LtJGAlexisWright: :: grins broadly and un-subtly leans the tray toward T'kirr ::
(21:42:05) LtCmdrBusard: :: Smiles gently:: Hey, you. You look appropriately festive, as usual.
(21:42:10) LtKuari: :: walks up to Tav on all fours :: Your first time here, right Jorvan?
(21:42:18) CdrHarper: :: arrives in a floral sundress, gets leid, and heads up the bar ::
(21:42:31) LtJorvanTav: :: turns to Kuari and smiles :: Yes. It is beautiful.
(21:42:32) VAdmBlackthorne: :; watches T'Kirr ::
(21:42:36) CdrTKirr: :: can already smell the rum but tries one anyway, biting experimentally ::
(21:43:19) LtKuari: It's got sand, too! Look! :: rushes off at a sprint and starts kicking sand on the beach ::
(21:43:58) ColDougMcKnight: ::Grins as he makes it to the bar. :: You've got to BELIEVE the shirt to pull it off.
(21:44:09) ColDougMcKnight: Thanks, Jack.
(21:44:14) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> Enjoy. :: grins ::
(21:44:28) LtJGAlexisWright: :: notices the sniff :: They are *quite* potent, but one will certainly not impair you. Two, on the other hand...
(21:44:34) ColDougMcKnight: Usually do.
(21:44:39) CdrTKirr: :: perks a curious eyebrow and finishes the rum ball, looking to McKnight as he approaches ::
(21:45:03) LtJorvanTav: :: watches Kuari make her way out and around kick at the sand ::
(21:45:46) LtCmdrBusard: :: Follows along, taking a seat at the bar:: Did I hear something about rum balls?
(21:45:54) CdrHarper: I certainly did.
(21:45:54) LtJorvanTav: :: turns to the bar :: Hey, Jack... Could I get a Blue Hawaiian and a nice... This looks like a place to have a Sex on the Beach.
(21:45:55) LtJGAlexisWright: :: Offers to tray to McKnight as he approaches :: Hot Chocolate Buttered Rum Ball, Colonel? Wright family tradition!
(21:45:59) LtKuari: :: bellows happily and runs out further, splashing around flamboyantly in the surf ::
(21:46:01) ColDougMcKnight: ::Places the glass down for a moment, having taken his first sip and approving, to the surprise of nobody. :: Commander.
(21:46:22) ColDougMcKnight: :: Looks to Wright. :: Well, if it's a family honor thing...
(21:46:31) LtJGAlexisWright: :: includes Percy in her comment previously directed only at McKnight ::
(21:46:33) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya, Doug.
(21:47:17) LtJGAlexisWright: :: nods solemnly :: It certainly is, Colonel.
(21:47:19) ColDougMcKnight: :: Grabs one and pops it in his mouth. :: Not bad. Use any particular kind of rum?
(21:47:57) CdrHarper: :: eyes the rum balls ::
(21:48:07) ColDougMcKnight: :: Nods to Blackthorne. :: Sir.
(21:48:20) VAdmBlackthorne: :: serves up the two drinks to Tav ::
(21:48:24) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack ^
(21:48:39) LtJorvanTav: :: takes the drinks :: Thanks, Jack!
(21:49:04) LtCmdrBusard: :: Takes a rum ball and munches on it, savoring the taste:: Mmm...oh man, baked goods, chocolate, and alcohol. Is there anything better?
(21:49:12) LtJGAlexisWright: It's actually a blend of traditional Carribean-style rums... and a rich chocolate liqeur as one of the special ingredients. The chocolate mellows out some of the rum, which basically allows us to put in more rum and have them still taste good.
(21:49:35) LtJorvanTav: :: walks out toward the surf, sipping at the Blue Hawaiian :: Wow. I thought making a proper Blue Hawaiian was a lost art except in my family!
(21:50:12) CdrTKirr: :: puts a hand on the bar and requests a lemonade, light on the sugar ::
(21:50:29) LtJGAlexisWright: :: smiles at Percy's compliment ::
(21:50:32) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> Sure thing, T'Kirr. No more Andorian tea for you, eh?
(21:50:54) CdrTKirr: Maybe next time. Light on the lemon, too, please.
(21:51:19) CdrHarper: :: takes a rum ball and devours it :: Oh wow, where is Roxy when there is something like this around?
(21:51:34) LtJGAlexisWright: (( Lemonade light on the sugar & light on the lemon = ...water? ))
(21:52:03) LtKuari: :: notices Tav with a drink and stops splashing, walking out of the water on two legs so as not to get her hands sandy, and instead whips the water off her fur canine-style ::
(21:52:13) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> :: swiftly mixes up a light lemonade from the lemons he'd pre-juiced ::
(21:52:30) LtCmdrBusard: ::Smiles a little wider at Harper:: Probably sneaking into Wright's quarters right now to steal the recipe.
(21:52:47) CdrHarper: It would not surprise me.
(21:52:56) LtJGAlexisWright: :: snorts:: I wouldn't put it past her. She's sneaky.
(21:53:56) LtJGAlexisWright: Though she won't like what she gets if she tries to use the recipe.
(21:54:03) ColDougMcKnight: Well, I'd say family honor has been upheld. Thanks for sharing!
(21:54:24) ColDougMcKnight: Um...Jack, how about a glass of water? Not sure chocolate and fruit punch mix too great.
(21:54:48) LtJorvanTav: :: walks into the water up to his ankles. The water is the perfect temperature, matched only by the warm air. Tav looks to Kuari :: I could stay here a very long time.
(21:54:48) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> An easy one! :: slides him a glass of water :
(21:55:01) CdrHarper: Well, I was going to ask for a margarita, but now I want more rum. A pina colada please?
(21:55:35) LtKuari: :: cocks her head :: Here in Lost Harbor, or in the water?
(21:55:40) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> Coming right up.
(21:55:56) LtJorvanTav: Both. This is very a very nicely done program.
(21:56:37) LtJGAlexisWright: My roommate at the Academy tried to "borrow" my recipe for a party once and didn't pay attention to the precautions I'd taken to thwart would-be thieves... the addition of 2 cups of vinegar and 4 tablespoons of cayenne pepper does not make for good rum balls.
(21:57:10) LtCmdrBusard: Haha! Wow, you are a cruel woman.
(21:57:22) LtJGAlexisWright: :: grins slyly and preens ::
(21:57:51) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> :: serves up the pina colada :: Here you are, Kathryn.
(21:58:03) LtKuari: :: nods in agreement and goes a bit cross-eyed at his drink :: What's in the cup?
(21:58:09) CdrHarper: :: takes the drink, complete with umbrella :: Thank you, Jack.
(21:59:27) LtJorvanTav: :: acknowledges the question by lifting the cups slightly :: A couple of my favorite drinks from Earth's twentieth century. This one is called a "Sex on the Beach" and this one is called a "Blue Hawaiian". Care to try some?
(21:59:31) CdrTKirr: :: sips at her lemonade, listening to the conversation ::
(22:00:41) LtCmdrBusard: Oop,l think I just heard my favorite drink. Another Sex on the Beach over here, please!
(22:00:47) LtKuari: :: sniffs it as he moves the glass toward her, Kuari now tall enough that he doesn't have to lower it, and turns her head to snort :: No thanks.
(22:00:56) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> :: grins:: Coming right up....
(22:01:06) LtJGAlexisWright: :: looks over and finally spots Kuari and Tav out on the beach :: Oh! I wonder if Kuari will like these. I enhanced the chocolate flavor just for her. :: sets the tray down on the bar and puts a few rum balls on a napkin :: Enjoy them, everyone, but slowly... they'll sneak up on ya. :: smiles, waves, and scampers down toward Kuari ::
(22:01:19) LtJorvanTav: :: pulls the glasses back slightly :: Oh, really? They taste very good.
(22:01:36) LtJorvanTav: (Tav is over at the beach, the edge of the water. Percy has incredible hearing)
(22:02:18) LtKuari: Too strong. I'm not much for alcohol.
(22:02:23) VAdmBlackthorne: (he had to order the drink!)
(22:02:41) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> :: produces another Sex on the Beach :: Here you are, Persephone.
(22:03:11) LtJGAlexisWright: :: calls out to Tav and Kuari as she approaches, but her voice is lost to the waves, so she quickens her step to close the distance :: Yoo-hoo!
(22:03:37) LtKuari: :: perks her ears up at Wright ::
(22:03:47) LtJorvanTav: :: turns to see what has Kuari's attention ::
(22:03:57) LtCmdrBusard: (Heh, sorry. Yeah, I'd make the ordering argument, so just put "recently" instead of "just")
(22:03:58) LtKuari: :: decides not to glomp her, as she's carrying something, and people get angry when she does that ::
(22:04:03) LtCmdrBusard: Thanks, Jack.
(22:04:10) LtJorvanTav: Hello, Alexis.
(22:04:23) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> Of course. :: leans back a moment and surveys the bar ::
(22:04:51) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> :: spies Ian without a drink, and makes a pretty educated guess that he wants a Tom Collins ::
(22:05:18) LtJGAlexisWright: :: joins them, grinning, holding forth her napkin of rum balls :: Please have a Hot CHOCOLATE Buttered Rum Ball! Wright family tradition. :: emphasizes the word chocolate, with an obvious lean toward Kuari ::
(22:05:27) LtJorvanTav: :: takes another gulp and finishes the Blue Hawaiian, and throws the glass up onto the beach out of the way ::
(22:05:30) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> :: slides that to Ian :: There you go
(22:05:36) VAdmBlackthorne: Hey, thanks!
(22:05:45) LtKuari: ...Chocolate? :: cocks her head ::
(22:06:05) LtJorvanTav: :: turns back to Wright :: That sounds very good. I'll take one!
(22:06:18) CdrHarper: :: sneaks another rum ball ::
(22:06:38) LtJGAlexisWright: :: nods :: These are a traditional Earth dessert served during winter festivals. This recipe has been in my family for over 400 years.
(22:07:13) LtJGAlexisWright: But I enhanced the chocolate flavor just for you, Kuari! You'll try one, right?
(22:07:38) LtKuari: :: notices the balls that everyone's been eating, can smell the alcohol on them, but wavers :: I could... TRY one...
(22:08:16) LtJGAlexisWright: (( Question: How does one get Kuari tipsy? Answer: Alcohol + Chocolate. ))
(22:08:25) CdrHarper: That goes so well with the coconut.
(22:09:09) LtJGAlexisWright: Oh, please do! If you don't like it, you can spit it out, I'll understand. :: waits for Tav to take one, and then extends the napkin to Kuari ::
(22:09:54) LtKuari: :: nips at the napkin, pulling the entire thing into her mouth, then pulls out the napkin, sits and ponders the taste as her tongue works ::
(22:10:17) LtCmdrBusard: :: Watches the Wright/Kuari interaction from a distance, chuckling before she turns back to the bar and her fiance:: So, how goes the law enforcement on the ship? Any adventurous capers after criminal masterminds lately?
(22:10:34) CdrHarper: :: notes the sailor who usually pesters her at a table, glad he doesn't recognize her since she's not dressed as Amelia Earhart this time ::
(22:11:28) LtJorvanTav: (Just how many balls were left on the napkin? I had been planning to have another...)
(22:11:30) LtKuari: :: whips her head quickly from side to side, eyes big and staring at the sand behind the two people ::
(22:11:55) LtKuari: Chocolate's never tasted like that before.
(22:12:04) LtJGAlexisWright: :: blinks as Kuari eats all three balls that were on the napkin, but decides her body weight is probably sufficient to offset the quantity... probably. ::
(22:12:14) LtJorvanTav: :: backs up a bit to allow Kuari's reaction ::
(22:12:39) LtJGAlexisWright: :: eyes Kuari :: is it good chocolate or bad chocolate?
(22:12:45) LtKuari: Good. I think.
(22:13:05) LtKuari: I like Doctor Carre's chocolate better, but... good.
(22:13:28) VAdmBlackthorne: :: leans back and sips his drink ::
(22:13:37) LtJorvanTav: What kind of chocolate does she give you?
(22:13:39) LtJGAlexisWright: Well, this is a little different. :: smiles :: I'm glad you liked them!
(22:13:58) CdrTKirr: :: notices Ian's movement and leans back into him from the barstool next to him ::
(22:14:01) ColDougMcKnight: Oh, you're talking to me! Well...Ensign Reuben accused Jack of watering down his drambuie yesterday. We got a couple calls from folks who worries phasers were about to be drawn.
(22:14:07) LtKuari: I don't know. Good chocolate.
(22:14:19) ColDougMcKnight: ( worried )
(22:14:25) LtJorvanTav: Hmm... :: makes a mental note ::
(22:14:45) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> The kid doesn't know me very well.
(22:14:54) LtKuari: :: starts splashing around again, as if Tav and Wright aren't even there ::
(22:15:24) LtJorvanTav: :: turns to Wright :: That wasn't 151 rum, was it?
(22:16:05) ColDougMcKnight: Kids today. Seriouslu.
(22:16:15) LtJGAlexisWright: :: smiles cryptically :: Can't answer that, sorry. Ancient family secret.
(22:16:15) ColDougMcKnight: ( D'oh. Seriously.)
(22:17:04) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> Truly.
(22:17:16) LtKuari: :: falls into the water, her wings splayed out over the surface, then suddenly she pushes out into deeper water and dives, disappearing ::
(22:17:31) ColDougMcKnight: :: Knocks back a bit more of his punch, the water having adequately cleaned his palate. ::
(22:17:36) VAdmBlackthorne: :: takes another couple of rum balls, offers one to T'Kirr with an impish grin ::
(22:17:52) LtJorvanTav: :: looks back to Kuari, splashing extremely happily just outside splash's reach :: Well, if it is... this is gonna get really interesting. You know she's only 70 kilograms.
(22:18:17) LtCmdrBusard: Wow. Watering down his drambuie. That's practically a hanging offence, you know.
(22:18:24) LtJGAlexisWright: :: watches Kuari do this, then slides her gaze to Tav :: Uh. Did she just go under?
(22:18:24) CdrTKirr: :: hesitates, noticing the expression on his face when she looks up at him, then takes it and nibbles at it slowly ::
(22:18:43) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> Only a savage would do that, anyway.
(22:18:58) VAdmBlackthorne: :: munches on his own ::
(22:19:10) LtJorvanTav: :: looks back to Wright :: It would seem she did.
(22:19:23) LtJGAlexisWright: Really? Only 70 kg? I thought... huh. We could be in trouble, then. Do you know if she knows how to swim?
(22:19:25) ColDougMcKnight: Thank God we don't keep actual horses on this ship, or I'd have to make breaking up duels my full time job.
(22:19:40) LtJorvanTav: She seems to.
(22:20:24) VAdmBlackthorne: Oh, didn't you hear? The cavalry is based on deck thirty two.
(22:20:43) LtJGAlexisWright: Huh. :: watches the spot where Kuari went under, chewing on her lip ::
(22:20:55) LtJorvanTav: :: sips at his Sex on the Beach as he contemplates Wright's reaction ::
(22:21:16) ColDougMcKnight: :: Grins. :: I'm not getting my memos.
(22:21:40) LtJGAlexisWright: :: begins to consider jumping into the water after Kuari ::
(22:21:52) LtCmdrBusard: Oh man, does that mean we can call them whenever we need a dramatic exit?
(22:22:00) LtJorvanTav: She seems to have been down a long time...
(22:22:06) LtKuari: :: crashes out of the water some ways away, flinging water with her wings before diving and disappearing again ::
(22:22:29) VAdmBlackthorne: Right, then we can all ride off into the sunset.
(22:22:43) LtJorvanTav: :: watches Kuari, then turns back to Wright :: Well, she seems to be doing okay so far... I guess she has quite a lung capacity.
(22:22:50) LtJGAlexisWright: Speak of the devil. I can't tell if she's in distress, though.
(22:23:00) ColDougMcKnight: We keep that one on deck 32 as well?
(22:23:22) VAdmBlackthorne: No no, that's on 42.
(22:23:54) LtJorvanTav: Depending on what three balls did to her, she's probably chasing fish around down there.
(22:24:03) LtKuari: :: approaches suddenly and torpedo-like, displacing the water above in a furrow until she explodes out of the water with a roar ::
(22:24:34) LtJGAlexisWright: :: remembers that this is a holodeck and it is probably impossible to drown ::
(22:24:59) ColDougMcKnight: And here I thought a Sovereign only had 24 decks.
(22:25:05) LtJorvanTav: :: watches what appears to be wake approaching without a boat, and is still marginally surprised when a dragon is standing what would normally be uncomfortably close in front of him ::
(22:25:12) LtJGAlexisWright: Eeek! :: stumbles backward as wet roaring Kuari launches out of the water at a high rate of speed ::
(22:25:19) ColDougMcKnight: :: Looks to Percy. :: You been putting in some overtime lately and not telling me?
(22:25:24) CdrTKirr: :: closes her eyes and lies very still, the vibrations of Ian's speech lulling her ::
(22:25:38) LtCmdrBusard: Well, there's still only 24 VISIBLE decks. :: Grins with shifty eyes::
(22:25:52) VAdmBlackthorne: :: smirks :: Oh yeah, the last big refit added another 24 decks, but they're... inverted from the top set.
(22:25:56) LtKuari: Kuari the sea monster! Rawr.
(22:25:59) LtJorvanTav: Hmm... do you think fish got programmed into the water?
(22:26:04) LtKuari: :: drips ::
(22:26:33) CdrHarper: :: plays with the little umbrella in her dwindling drink ::
(22:26:36) LtJGAlexisWright: :: recovers her footing and composure :: I... don't know. Sea Monster Kuari, did you see any fish down there?
(22:27:42) LtKuari: No, it's dark down there. ((assuming this is a night scene))
(22:28:23) LtJorvanTav: So, uh, Kuari... How are you feeling?
(22:28:51) LtKuari: Good! :: eyes his drink, cross-eyed again :: You done with that?
(22:28:52) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Some extras light a bonfire on the beach.
(22:29:41) LtJorvanTav: :: looks into Kuari's glossy eyes :: Sure. I can always get another.
(22:29:47) LtKuari: :: turns her head at the fire being lit down the beach ::
(22:30:00) LtJorvanTav: :: moves the SotB toward Kuari ::
(22:30:06) LtJGAlexisWright: Er. Do you think that's a good idea, Tav?
(22:30:09) LtCmdrBusard: :: Finishes her first drink a little slower than usual, then turns to Jack:: Hey Jack! I have a horrible case of empty glass syndrome over here. I don't suppose you could cure that for me?
(22:30:18) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> Why, of course I can!
(22:30:24) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> What'll it be, more of the same?
(22:30:42) LtJorvanTav: :: harshly whispers to Wright :: I'm curious about something here...
(22:30:43) LtKuari: :: turns her attention back to Tav :: Good! :: grabs the drink with her mouth, tosses it to the side, bits his sleeve, and starts dragging him into the ocean ::
(22:31:00) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> The scent of roast pig wafts into the bar.
(22:31:37) LtJorvanTav: :: being dragged into the ocean pulls Wright with him: Woah!
(22:31:48) LtJGAlexisWright: Gack...:: watches helplessly as Tav is dragged into the water :: Er... :: calls out to him :: Do you need rescuing, or are you still curious about something here?
(22:32:37) CdrHarper: :: sniffs :: That reminds me of.... bacon!
(22:32:44) LtJGAlexisWright: Ach! :: half-baked rescue plans fly out the window as Tav grabs her by the waist of her sarong and drags her along ::
(22:33:05) LtJorvanTav: (( nice recovery... or loss of control... or...))
(22:33:11) LtKuari: :: keeps pulling in determination, one foot at a time ::
(22:33:58) LtJorvanTav: :: falls over and is more easily pulled along ::
(22:34:01) ColDougMcKnight: :: Strolling to the door to inspect the roast pig, the trio is sadly hard to miss. :: Nobody disengaged holodeck safeties, right?
(22:34:12) LtCmdrBusard: Eh, surprise me!
(22:34:28) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> Hmmm... :: gets to work on a SECRET DRINK ::
(22:35:01) LtJGAlexisWright: :: is no match for determined drunken Sea Monster Kuari :: Tav, leggome! :: sputters as a wave hits her in the face ::
(22:35:28) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> :: after a few minutes and a couple of minor explosions, he produces SECRET DRINK for Percy ::
(22:35:41) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> There you are. A frozen fruity masterpiece.
(22:35:52) LtKuari: :: now floating, waits for the people to grab on, watching them humorously ::
(22:36:24) LtJorvanTav: :: grabs Kuari and hangs on for dear life, not sure what is next ::
(22:36:34) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> An extra yells into the bar. "The food and bonfire's ready, c'mon out!"
(22:36:49) LtKuari: Climb on!
(22:36:49) LtJGAlexisWright: :: after a perplexed moment, tentatively follows suit ::
(22:37:03) ColDougMcKnight: :: Grins:: And what do you know? First in line!
(22:37:11) LtJorvanTav: Uh... okay. Are you sure you can hold me in water like this?
(22:37:28) ColDougMcKnight: :: Jogs on over to the pig, breaking out his knife as he approaches to personally cut off a choice bit of pork. ::
(22:37:29) LtKuari: :: takes in a deep breath and bobs a little higher in the water :: I weigh, like, nothing.
(22:37:52) VAdmBlackthorne: C'mon, I made sure they had something for you too. :: tugs at T'Kirr ::
(22:37:56) LtJorvanTav: Well, alright then. :: climbs aboard Kuari ::
(22:38:02) CdrTKirr: :: opens her eyes and suppresses a groan ::
(22:38:05) CdrHarper: ::: darts out to the pig :: Bacon?!
(22:38:29) CdrTKirr: :: quietly up to Ian :: I suppose you're interested in the meat?
(22:39:33) VAdmBlackthorne: Of course. But there's food for you too.
(22:40:27) LtCmdrBusard: :: Hesitantly takes a sip of the SUPER SECRET DRINK...and promptly practically melts:: Jack, you are a madman. And I love it.
(22:40:38) LtCmdrBusard: :: Proceeds to go to her happy place::
(22:40:48) CdrTKirr: :: wrinkles her nose slightly :: But it stinks.
(22:40:48) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> :: grins ::
(22:41:09) VAdmBlackthorne: My nose is different than yours.
(22:41:17) LtKuari: :: starts kicking, her wings beating awkwardly, but they're moving ::
(22:41:29) LtJGAlexisWright: :: clings next to Tav, waiting :: Er. Where are we going?
(22:41:46) LtKuari: I smell bacon.
(22:41:59) LtKuari: I don't eat bacon, but you eat bacon. Want bacon?
(22:42:20) LtJGAlexisWright: I could eat.
(22:42:43) LtJorvanTav: Wait... You dragged us... well, you dragged me, I guess I dragged Wright... But you dragged us into the water just to take us in?
(22:42:57) CdrTKirr: :: slides off the stool in defeat and takes his hand, enjoying the pleasant atmosphere too much to complain ::
(22:43:00) ColDougMcKnight: :: Grabs a plate and saws off a goodly chunk of pork, spearing some of it with the aforementioned knife in lieu of finding a fork, and sampling it. :: Yep, that's done!
(22:43:13) LtKuari: :: points with her nose down the beach :: It's over there!
(22:43:16) LtJGAlexisWright: :: shoots a warning glance at Tav, which is ignored ::
(22:43:26) VAdmBlackthorne: They have pineapples, you know.
(22:44:20) CdrTKirr: :: eyes sparkle subtly ::
(22:45:13) LtJorvanTav: :: looks back at Wright :: Well, what would you like? You said eat? Sure, Kuari. Take us in to shore.
(22:45:32) LtKuari: :: makes good time :: I was going to dunk you. But now there's food.
(22:45:35) CdrHarper: :: bacons some bacon off the bacon and then some ::
(22:45:38) CdrHarper: :: bacons ::
(22:45:51) VAdmBlackthorne: Mango and papaya, too.
(22:48:32) VAdmBlackthorne: :: arrives at the spread around the pig ::
(22:49:11) LtKuari: :: connects with the shore just out from the bonfire and starts powering her legs through the water until she's trotting up the beach as if there aren't two drenched people on her back ::
(22:49:51) CdrTKirr: :: appreciates the heat of the fire, turns her face into it and closes her eyes ::
(22:50:50) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns away from the pig, noticing her reaction, and puts an arm around as he admire the bonfire ::
(22:52:07) CdrTKirr: :: peers down at their feet in the sand and notices how the orange glow of the fire turns her green dress brown ::
(22:53:20) LtJorvanTav: :: upon reaching the bonfire and impressed with Kuari's strength, Tav hops off and onto the warm sand ::
(22:53:28) VAdmBlackthorne: (Two minutes!)
(22:53:29) LtKuari: :: comes to a stop as close as she can to the pig, noticing people moving out of her way, and waits ::
(22:53:44) ColDougMcKnight: :: Pondering as he chews. :: I wonder if the replicators could manage a maple flavored pig.
(22:54:35) LtJGAlexisWright: :: drops awkwardly from Kuari's back, looking a little green around the gills :: On second thought, maybe I'm not hungry...
(22:54:41) CdrHarper: This is not bad, though.
(22:54:59) LtJorvanTav: :: ponders the pig, then grabs utensils ::
(22:55:05) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE LUAU
(22:55:07) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE LUAU
(22:55:11) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE LUAU

(22:55:27) LtJorvanTav: :: pauses at 1:45 instead of 2:00 ::
(22:55:28) LtJGAlexisWright: :: || ::
(22:55:43) VAdmBlackthorne: HAPPY 2391 EVERYONE! :toot:
(22:56:34) ColDougMcKnight: Woo!
(22:56:44) LtKuari: :: shouts loudly ::
(22:57:16) LtCmdrBusard: :: toot!::
(22:57:28) ColDougMcKnight: Oh, dear. McKnight will be 45 before the year is out.
(22:57:36) LtJorvanTav: Just to be clear, I am only partially satisfied. It was not me who got Kuari drunk.
(22:57:56) CdrTKirr: When you get down about your age, just remember T'Kirr's older.
(22:57:59) VAdmBlackthorne: Ian'll be 49 this month.
(22:58:14) ColDougMcKnight: Yeah, but Vulcan years are like whale years.
(22:58:29) VAdmBlackthorne: We smugazoids live a bit longer anyway. :V
(22:59:14) CdrTKirr: Well, was trying to make you feel better, but if you're gonna be that way
(22:59:20) LtJorvanTav: Hey, I like being married to an older woman. Of course, the fact that she's hot and gets mistaken for an 18-year-old doesn't exactly hurt anything 8-)
(22:59:44) CdrTKirr: Hm, I just subtracted her birthdate from the current year and it makes her 84... don't think that's right
(22:59:56) CdrTKirr: HAY. I was talking about T'Kirr.
(23:00:15) LtJorvanTav: And I was talking about the lady who plays her.
(23:00:15) CdrTKirr: And I'm only one month older than you.
(23:00:39) LtJorvanTav: To the day, yes.
(23:00:53) LtCmdrBusard: lol
(23:00:54) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, next week, back into the thick of things!
(23:01:18) LtJorvanTav: I don't think there'll be anything holding me back from being there. No work that day.
(23:01:56) ColDougMcKnight: I THINK Wednesday will work next week.
(23:02:15) VAdmBlackthorne: I hope so, it's your things we're getting back into the thick of.
(23:02:37) LtCmdrBusard: Yeah, I'm pretty sure next week is fine,
(23:03:11) ColDougMcKnight: Okay, then! I'm off to go grab a late dinner! Until next time, folks!
(23:03:34) LtJorvanTav: Have a good night. See y'all next week. Wright, sorry about the seasickness.
(23:03:39) VAdmBlackthorne: Night everyone!
(23:03:50) CdrHarper left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(23:03:55) LtJGAlexisWright: It's all good. G'night! :D
