(21:03:15) EnsignJohnTChance [Mibbit@50.10.ypw.ptg] entered the room.
(21:03:24) DoctorTav [firstname.lastname@example.org] entered the room.
(21:03:30) DoctorTav: Good evening!
(21:03:31) CdrTKirr: Hello.
(21:03:50) EnsignJohnTChance: Hi all! Good to be here!
(21:05:46) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya folks
(21:06:10) EnsignJohnTChance: Hey
(21:08:16) EnsignJohnTChance: So who out there had a really good week.
(21:08:26) EnsignJohnTChance: Come on...raise your hands!
(21:09:29) CdrTKirr: Heh
(21:09:32) CdrHarper [Mibbit@woaq-62-719-65-691.rcmdva.fios.verizon.net] entered the room.
(21:09:35) VAdmBlackthorne: Meh
(21:09:38) CdrTKirr: Good week, yeah. =)
(21:10:18) EnsignJohnTChance: Nobody else?
(21:10:51) CdrTKirr: They're prolly afkish
(21:12:16) LtLedaHarper: Meh.
(21:12:28) LtLedaHarper: I worked a lot and I'm absolutely bleary today despite lots of nice naps.
(21:12:45) LtLedaHarper: Trying to figure out how NOT to cook dinner. Taking suggestions!
(21:13:11) EnsignJohnTChance: Call Dominoes
(21:13:27) LtLedaHarper: eeww
(21:13:37) DoctorTav: Gotta be
(21:13:37) DoctorTav: Gotta be
(21:13:38) DoctorTav: Domino's
(21:13:39) LtLedaHarper: I will substitute 'local acceptable pizza joint' for that.
(21:13:42) DoctorTav: Buffalo wings!
(21:13:50) LtLedaHarper: I don't care for wings, oddly.
(21:13:59) EnsignJohnTChance: Okay...how about Fang Foo's Chinese take out.
(21:14:10) CdrTKirr: I'm not for wings, either.
(21:14:10) VAdmBlackthorne: Wings are too much work for too little inferior meat.
(21:14:15) EnsignJohnTChance: I hear they put a whole cat in every carton
(21:14:44) LtLedaHarper: I am kinda eyeballing spicy shrimp of some kind.
(21:16:17) EnsignJohnTChance: Then you call Fang Foo, you so smart!
(21:17:03) LtLedaHarper: Soooooomething like that, yes.
(21:17:59) EnsignJohnTChance: He tell you...you want spicy shrimp and no cat? You gotta be kitten!
(21:18:32) CdrTKirr: *rolls eyes*
(21:19:47) VAdmBlackthorne: Apologies for the delay folks, trying to figure out how to proceed.
(21:19:50) EnsignJohnTChance: Seriously, Fang Foo's spicy shrimp really is a CATastrophy!
(21:20:01) LtLedaHarper: Chance, you're hurting me. I mean real pain here.
(21:20:05) VAdmBlackthorne: ::groan::
(21:20:36) DoctorTav: Watch it, or I'm gonna break out the Helen Keller jokes that the guy in the power chair told me last week.
(21:21:39) EnsignJohnTChance: Like how she burned her fingers reading the instructions on a waffle iron...those Hellen Keller jokes? As she would say, I feel ya, Tav!
(21:24:18) LtLedaHarper: You're just making me want to go have a nice normal cheeseburger instead, you know.
(21:26:32) EnsignJohnTChance: Well then you gotta call Aunt Lulu's RoadKill Burgers over on Fifth...you know the one with the motto "You run it down, we'll grind it up!"
(21:26:57) LtLedaHarper: But then I'd have to schlep out to Red Robin and get stuffed on fries. Fries are evil. EVIL I TELL YOU.
(21:29:16) VAdmBlackthorne: OK, we're just going to have to call it tonight, unfortunately. We're missing the people to continue shoreleave properly AND we lack the other necessary people to launch and test our new engines.
(21:30:28) VAdmBlackthorne: Frustrating, but it happens. We'll try again next week. Summer doldrums are always hard.
(21:31:06) DoctorTav: We can log
(21:31:46) VAdmBlackthorne: Yes, please do that.
(21:33:07) LtLedaHarper: At least we're here.
(21:33:16) LtLedaHarper: Okay, we will write stuff. YAY STUFF.
(21:33:24) EnsignJohnTChance: Yeah, that's something at least
(21:33:52) VAdmBlackthorne: And I appreciate it. Things will improve as summer wanes.
(21:34:27) DoctorTav: I look forward to getting Atlantis out of space dock and back on the road
(21:34:32) EnsignJohnTChance: It rains too much in the summer around here anyway.
(21:35:05) LtLedaHarper: I'm not worried. I'm glad people are showing up.
(21:35:21) CdrTKirr: That's the spirit. =)
(21:35:40) VAdmBlackthorne: The refit will just end up being more extensive than we thought was necessary. The old girl has been in space for 15 years.
(21:35:42) LtLedaHarper: And the leave stories have been fun as hell.
(21:35:54) DoctorTav: Mah mama always tuld me, never trust a smilin' Vulcan.
(21:35:56) VAdmBlackthorne: I've really enjoyed those too and that's why I didn't want to just cut them off.
(21:36:06) CdrTKirr: =|
(21:37:19) DoctorTav: And now, in your mind, you've seen a Rucara sitting on top of a hyperbaric chamber. Where else in the world would you be directed toimagine that?
(21:37:26) DoctorTav: *to imagine
(21:39:30) VAdmBlackthorne: Overall it's been a good July so far. Lots of logs and last week was kickin'.
(21:40:22) CdrTKirr: Yeah, been great leave
(21:40:29) CdrTKirr: And an exciting new ship to try out
(21:40:36) CdrTKirr: Imagine what slipstream drive can do
(21:40:46) VAdmBlackthorne: The entire galaxy opens up to us. :)
(21:41:25) EnsUrist: OH GOD WHAT HORRIBLE THINGS ARE IN SPACE :cthulhu:
(21:41:32) EnsignJohnTChance: Is it as good as Improbability Drive?
(21:41:45) DoctorTav: Up until you go plaid
(21:41:57) DoctorTav: WANT! http://www.teefury.com/?ref=e892b075a8300dd5ee9549fa68a644c4
(21:44:09) VAdmBlackthorne: That gives me an idea for a plot!
(21:44:37) DoctorTav: Glad I could help :)
(21:45:01) EnsignJohnTChance: So does a cemetary salesman!
(21:45:37) EnsignJohnTChance: Even if his demeanor is somewhat...grave
(21:46:33) LtLedaHarper: I wondered if y'all were going to see that wonderful, silly thing.
(21:51:29) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, here's hoping for next week! Take care, everybody
(21:51:43) DoctorTav: Good night everyone but T'Kirr
(21:51:58) EnsignJohnTChance: See you, gang.
