(21:33:18) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::adjusts his party hat to a rather jaunty angle::
(21:34:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: approaches the game table wearing a filmy robe, feeling fairly loose following a lengthy massage and perhaps a bit tipsy ::
(21:34:38) CO_Capt_Harper: :: emerges from the hot tub with a margarita in hand, clad in a cute floral bikini, and towels off a bit before putting on a big smile and beckoning people to the game table ::
(21:34:38) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::glances up from his seat as Wright approaches, offering her a smile:: CSO: What do you think, Commander? Too jaunty?
(21:35:49) CO_Capt_Harper: :: takes her seat at the head of the table and shuffles the deck ::
(21:36:06) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: having made the most of his day and become more familiar with more individuals of the crew, somewhat carelessly seats himself at the game table with a drink and an expectant smile on his face ::
(21:36:21) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Not at all, Commander, I think it quite suits you! :: grins at him as she takes a seat next to Kate and sips her margarita ::
(21:36:35) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: approaches the game table and sits. There's not really much of an expression on his face because Wolfe is Wolfe. However, at the beckoning of Kuari, he is wearing a loud Hawaiian shirt and shorts. ::
(21:36:47) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::nods matter of factly - of course it suits him. He takes another sip of his warp core breach::
(21:36:57) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: oh, and flip flops. Which he hates. ::
(21:37:20) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: has a cup of tea for obvious reasons and is wearing a dress she'd replicated yesterday just for the occasion. Wonders what sort of game this will be ::
(21:37:27) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Swims to the edge of the pool with great haste with his webbed hands. Climbs out and dries himself off with his towel as he approaches the game table with the others to play a silly Terran style game. ::
(21:38:26) CO_Capt_Harper: Thank you for coming, everyone! I hope you all like this game. No hurt feelings allowed; it is all in good fun.
(21:39:25) CO_Capt_Harper: :: deals the cards ::
(21:40:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: unties her robe, revealing a black and white striped tankini - nice to spend a day in the pool without getting sunburnt!
(21:40:59) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: picks up his cards and looks at them. He looks up at Harper, and back to his cards. ::
(21:41:57) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::raises an eyebrow at his cards, then smirks and puts one down::
(21:42:05) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: sees Wolfe's reaction and warily picks up her cards. Well then. ::
(21:42:20) CO_Capt_Harper: :: looks to the XO to see what he will pick ::
(21:43:05) CO_Capt_Harper: :: nods :: That is indeed a pity!
(21:43:18) CO_Capt_Harper: Hmmm, T'Lira's secret power....
(21:43:19) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Rushes up to the table, clad in athletic shorts and shirt, clutching a hover board under his arm. :: Hey, guys! Got room for one more?
(21:43:22) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: snorts and passes the card :: Well that one was obvious.
(21:43:27) CO_Capt_Harper: CEO: Sure thing, sit down!
(21:43:53) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: blushes at some of her cards ::
(21:44:18) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Grins and props his board up against a nearby empty chair before taking a place at the table and getting himself some cards. ::
(21:45:19) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks at his black card and sets it out for everyone else to play ::
(21:45:40) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::wonders who the name belongs to, put plays the card anyway::
(21:45:45) CO_Capt_Harper: :: snickers as the white cards come up ::
(21:45:59) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: frowns, wondering what half of his cards are referring to ::
(21:46:04) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: muses over the white cards. :: Does anyone have any arguments?
(21:46:20) CO_Capt_Harper: Who is William Shatner, anyway?
(21:46:47) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: CO: Isn't he the new maintenance technician assigned to Deck 6? ::glances between Kate and Quinn::
(21:46:48) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: looks at Harper like she's stupid :: He's that famous writer?
(21:46:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: laughs hysterically at the choice ::
(21:46:59) CO_Capt_Harper: CMO: Ohhhhhhh.....
(21:47:39) CEO_LtQuinn: CMO: You're thinking of Crewman Shatani, sir.
(21:47:51) CO_Capt_Harper: :: is not sure what Randen would pick for this one, does not know him that well ::
(21:47:52) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::snaps his fingers:: CEO: Ah, thats it!
(21:48:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: What exactly is sideboob?
(21:49:12) SCI_Lt_TLira: CSO: I have no idea. It does not sound... attractive
(21:50:28) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::wonders briefly if he's had too much to drink, then snrks and plays his cards::
(21:50:32) CO_Capt_Harper: :: shrugs, then looks to the Chief ::
(21:51:26) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks around, bored. ::
(21:52:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: has never licked anything to claim them as her own, but is definitely getting some ideas from these cards ::
(21:52:07) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: snorts and puts his white card down ::
(21:52:12) CO_Capt_Harper: :: wonders what emo is ::
(21:52:33) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: looks around at everyone as they decide and reaches for his drink ::
(21:52:33) CO_Capt_Harper: :: looks quizzically at the black card ::
(21:52:36) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: is mildly concerned by these cards and is partly guessing as to what would be appropriate at this point ::
(21:53:11) CO_Capt_Harper: Major Wolfe, obviously!
(21:53:15) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks around angrily to figure out who said it was him ::
(21:53:20) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::chuckles, glancing at wolfe:: CO: I can agree with that.
(21:53:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: again laughing uproariously :: CTO: It wasn't me!
(21:53:39) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: nods, thinking T'Lira's card was definitely better than his ::
(21:53:51) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: is saying nothing as to whose card that was ::
(21:54:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: doesn't know who this is, but it sounds like something to e worshipped. All praise Funky Bunches!
(21:54:35) CO_Capt_Harper: :: blinks four times at the white cards ::
(21:54:39) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::stares at the white cards, most of them making zero sense:: All: Hmm.
(21:54:41) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ::
(21:54:55) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: sees a card that looks odd, but doesn't actually want to ask what it is because it seems to be some strange human thing ::
(21:54:57) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: All: That second one is really a medical issue.
(21:55:16) CO_Capt_Harper: :: sly grin :: CMO: Is it?
(21:55:29) CSO_LCdr_Wright: All: I get to pick! Make it good!
(21:55:44) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: picks a card with Wright in mind. ::
(21:55:45) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::grins right back:: CO: I think that Shatner fellow came in with it once.
(21:55:48) CO_Capt_Harper: :: slides her card into the pile, knowing she's going to win this one ::
(21:56:22) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at the cards in confusion ::
(21:56:32) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: would be fine with Lunchables. It's food. That's all that counts. ::
(21:56:34) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Just pick mine!
(21:56:36) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: eyes Wright and wonders if he wasted his card ::
(21:56:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: blushes ::
(21:56:50) CO_Capt_Harper: :: facepalms ::
(21:56:54) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: wonders what sort of being created these cards ::
(21:56:55) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: grins and his jaw drops :: Oh, yeah!
(21:57:02) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Which one was yours!
(21:57:11) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Not fully understanding the game and submitting random cards. ::
(21:57:28) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::slides his card into the pile:: All: This is a serious problem.
(21:57:39) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Which one!?
(21:58:04) CO_Capt_Harper: :: grins at Lexy :: CSO: I will tell you later.
(21:58:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: The seatbelts thing? I agree.
(21:58:29) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Coughs uncomfortably. :: It's on the list.
(21:58:33) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: nods. :: Who is Mr. Bond?
(21:58:34) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: scratches his head :: Self: I think I know what that is.
(21:58:37) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::nods:: CSO: Blunt impact injuries were up 16 percent last year.
(21:58:58) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CTO: I have no idea, but the other thing sounds familiar from when I was a kid.
(21:59:19) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: :: rubs her head :: I know, believe me!
(21:59:33) CO_Capt_Harper: :: wonders what the hell T'Lira's gonna pick here ::
(21:59:34) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: pushes his next white card forward with a grimace, thinking it good to finally get rid of that card ::
(21:59:36) CEO_LtQuinn: ...Pandas.
(21:59:48) CO_Capt_Harper: :: cheers! ::
(21:59:55) CSO_LCdr_Wright: All: My cards are all terrible.
(21:59:55) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: All: Boring party!
(21:59:57) CO_Capt_Harper: Even Vulcans like chocolate!
(21:59:59) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: has decided to professional 'wing it' for now, as a friend once termed it. Looks around :: I am mildly concerned by these cards.
(22:00:36) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: sees the command on the card and is glad he is the czar. ::
(22:01:24) CO_Capt_Harper: :: narrows her eyebrows, trying to make a haiku, and takes a drink ::
(22:01:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Three cards isn't enough to make a haiku.
(22:01:29) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: isn't familiar with Earth forms of poetry, so this may likely not be the scheme the card is looking for. ::
(22:01:41) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: CSO: None of my cards have the right amounts of syllables.
(22:01:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Same.
(22:01:58) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks around :: You are all terrible at haiku.
(22:02:12) SCI_Lt_TLira: CTO: What is a haiku?
(22:02:18) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: CTO: Why don't you show us how it's done, Major? ::grins::
(22:02:46) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: is honestly surprised she won ::
(22:02:49) CO_Capt_Harper: CTO: How was that even a haiku?
(22:03:01) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: All: I only know who one of these people are ::slips his card into the deck::
(22:03:31) CEO_LtQuinn: SCI: It's a three part poem. 5 syllables, then 7, then 5 again.
(22:03:49) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Haiku is a Japanese poetry style marked by each line having a certain number of syllables. The first, five. The second, seven; and the third, five. Like so.
(22:03:49) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Ahem.
(22:03:50) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Haiku is really strange.
(22:03:51) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Doesn't need even make sense.
(22:03:52) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Refrigerator.
(22:04:13) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::thinks for a moment:: CTO: You're terrible at haiku.
(22:04:16) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: groans and shakes his head at the winning card ::
(22:04:23) SCI_Lt_TLira: CO: How would a gassy antelope aid people after a natural disaster?
(22:04:24) CO_Capt_Harper: :: laughs at that one, no idea what that meant ::
(22:04:38) CO_Capt_Harper: :: shrugs at TLira :: Who is Sean Penn anyway?
(22:04:57) SCI_Lt_TLira: CO: A fair point.
(22:05:11) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: nods to Kymar :: Aye. But I still did better than any of you.
(22:05:23) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: All: What system is Warcraft in? I don't recognise that world.
(22:05:40) CO_Capt_Harper: That would be a horrible movie!
(22:05:49) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::whoops:: CO: I'd watch it!
(22:06:22) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: figures there's going to be a lot of eyebrow raising during this game, so doesn't bother to curtail it. ::
(22:06:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: thought a Klingon passing a kidney stone was hilarious ::
(22:06:35) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Blanches at some of his cards, and decides to try being a bit literal this round. ::
(22:06:43) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::blinks:: All: You should all be ashamed of yourselves.
(22:07:00) CO_Capt_Harper: :: is in no way ashamed of herself! ::
(22:07:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Muahaha, I pick again!
(22:07:21) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::bursts out laughing as he plays this next card::
(22:07:34) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: bites his lips, squints at Wright, then plays a card, hoping for the best ::
(22:07:38) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: wonders what this card will see in terms of reactions ::
(22:07:40) CSO_LCdr_Wright: No question.
(22:07:46) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: sighs ::
(22:07:49) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::beams:: CSO: It's a good time for everyone.
(22:07:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: winks at Kymar ::
(22:07:55) CO_Capt_Harper: :: laughs :: I can buy that one.
(22:08:00) SCI_Lt_TLira: CMO: That is your opinion on the matter.
(22:08:17) CEO_LtQuinn: :: And now, decides to just grit his teeth, stifle the laughter, and get rid of this one. ::
(22:08:25) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: SCI: You've just been desensitized, Lieutenant.
(22:08:29) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: grins, liking this turn to choose ::
(22:08:49) SCI_Lt_TLira: CMO: Considering how often I visit recently, I would say so. :: picks a card at random and plays it ::
(22:08:59) XO_Cdr_Vallero: All: ....What?
(22:09:11) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: isn't sure what electroejaculation is, and doesn't want to. ::
(22:09:29) CO_Capt_Harper: :: looks at the XO and shrugs ::
(22:09:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: All: Some of these are grammatically incorrect, and we can't have that.
(22:09:40) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: Grammar is important.
(22:09:48) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: Indeed, a no-Vulcan scenario may prove unfortunate.
(22:09:55) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: All: Who is Batman?
(22:10:00) TAC_2LT_Randen: Wow, I actually won one!
(22:10:05) CO_Capt_Harper: CMO: No idea.
(22:10:21) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: CO: I'm going to assume he likes this, because everyone does ::plays his card::
(22:10:26) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Grins :: CMO: Something of a folk hero back on Earth.
(22:10:28) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: shakes his head :: Self: These cards...
(22:10:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: I think he's a 20th century Terran hero of some kind, my history is not great.
(22:11:12) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: These cards do not appear to be enjoyable things...
(22:11:23) CO_Capt_Harper: :: laughs as she slides the card center ::
(22:11:36) XO_Cdr_Vallero: SCI: Sometimes, it's the opposite that wins.
(22:11:37) CEO_LtQuinn: CMO: Have you heard of Robin Hood? Or Sir Lancelot, maybe? He was...sort of like that.
(22:11:55) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: CEO: Ah! Yes, I think I've heard someone mention Robin Hood before.
(22:12:03) TAC_2LT_Randen: All: Twice in a row? That's unheard of... for me anyways.
(22:12:20) SCI_Lt_TLira: CO: Indeed, your mastery of profanity could likely fill the alloted time for such a performance.
(22:12:29) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Arches his eyebrow in Harper's direction. :: CO: So, uh...who wrote these, anyway?
(22:12:41) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: Profanity, huh?
(22:12:43) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: SCI/CO: We'd have to put up heat shields for the front row.
(22:12:44) CO_Capt_Harper: CEO: It was not me!
(22:12:59) SCI_Lt_TLira: CMO: Likely so.
(22:13:03) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: In many languages.
(22:13:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: I'd go to Kate's profanity musical.
(22:13:17) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: I'm learning all kinds of things about this crew.
(22:13:35) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: wonders what exactly the card she just played even means ::
(22:13:45) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: That is the point, Commander. :: smiles ::
(22:13:51) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: snickers at his cards and plays one ::
(22:14:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: thinks she can extrapolate what the card means, maybe? ::
(22:14:05) CEO_LtQuinn: XO: Let's just thank our lucky stars that nobody in the Diplomatic Corps knows about this.
(22:14:06) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::grins widely, having won again:: All: I'll end on a high note, this'll be my last hand - there's someone special I'm hoping to catch before the party ends.
(22:14:12) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Watches as he judges this round. ::
(22:14:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Oh? And who might that be?
(22:14:43) XO_Cdr_Vallero: All: Aww...that's just...well, sad.
(22:14:46) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Pumps his fist:: Ha! Catching up!
(22:15:14) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: hopes that her cards don't win so that no one can link such things to her ::
(22:15:23) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: puts out some awful cards just to get rid of them ::
(22:15:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Why... Why would you stuff Kuari?
(22:15:51) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: straightens his back and looks around :: All: Where is that dragon?
(22:15:54) CEO_LtQuinn: ...
(22:15:54) CO_Capt_Harper: This Putin fellow sounds awful!
(22:16:02) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: CO: Awful indeed!
(22:16:08) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: These are cause for great concern.
(22:16:33) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: fists the air :: Self: Oh yeah.
(22:16:40) CO_Capt_Harper: :: plays the black card and laughs ::
(22:16:54) CO_Capt_Harper: :: sips her drink as the cards come in ::
(22:17:25) CO_Capt_Harper: :: blinks :
(22:17:37) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: has played a perfectly sensible card... this time ::
(22:17:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: going with an old earth stereotype ::
(22:17:53) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: CSO: And to answer your question, Commander L'esh who joined us for an Astrophyics study she's running for the Vulcan Science Council. Long ears, short ear, angry glare...:sighs happily::
(22:17:57) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: raises his eyebrow at the white cards before them ::
(22:18:11) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: <hair>
(22:18:37) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Interesting!
(22:19:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Why not Raktajino!
(22:19:14) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::grins, glancing at Randen:: TAC: Sounds like you need to go back on a tactical course.
(22:19:16) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Grins. He doesn't know his chances of winning with it, but he's actually a little proud of this one. Under the circumstances, that's saying something. ::
(22:19:21) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Heh.. okay, why can't I sleep at night, folks?
(22:19:37) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: nods his head at Kymar :: CMO: That actually works.
(22:19:41) CEO_LtQuinn: Sigh. Oh, what the hell.
(22:19:47) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: snorts and puts his card down. ::
(22:19:48) CO_Capt_Harper: CMO: She sounds nice. :: doesn't have a card for this one ::
(22:19:52) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: plays a card she totally doesn't understand, but it might work for this case, as it looks uncomfortable ::
(22:19:53) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at the cards with apprehension ::
(22:20:16) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks around the table, nervous to make the selection she has in mind ::
(22:20:18) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::plays his last card and pushes away from the table:: CO: I hope not. I like conversation with a little fire. ::flashes a grin::
(22:20:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: blushes furiously ::
(22:20:36) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::blinks, seeing his name pop up - then bursts out laughing::

(22:20:40) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: shrugs ::
(22:20:50) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: All: I can't win! Who played that!?
(22:20:56) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: the eyebrow lifts rather high upon seeing the winning card ::
(22:21:33) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: throws a random card on the pile and hides under the table ::
(22:21:45) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::sees the flushed face:: CSO: Commander Wright! Interesting...::beams widely, laughing::
(22:22:04) CO_Capt_Harper: :: peeks under the table :: Come back out!
(22:22:24) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::makes a short bow:: All: Have a good evening, my friends. Perhaps I'll rejoin you later. ::chuckles and grins, glancing under the table before making his way out::
(22:22:32) CO_Capt_Harper: CMO: Enjoy the party, doctor!
(22:22:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: comes out, giggling madly, can't make eye contact with anyone ::
(22:23:21) CO_Capt_Harper: :: plays a card she has no idea about in response to one she has no idea about ::

(22:23:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: plays a card that she has no idea is incredibly incorrect ::
(22:24:07) CO_Capt_Harper: Whoever he is, that makes sense.
(22:24:14) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: It would be logical that a being would prefer themselves over... over the rest of that.
(22:24:42) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: picks something that sounds science-y ::
(22:25:06) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: plays a card that likely accurately reflects what goes on in a science lab ::
(22:25:17) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Pumps a fist in the air and then claps as he wins another round. ::
(22:25:18) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: considers his cards :: Hmm. Don't WANT to know anything about THAT one...
(22:25:34) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Yay!
(22:26:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: picks two people she's never heard of ::
(22:26:43) TAC_2LT_Randen: All: I am the Card Czar! Muahahaha.
(22:27:19) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: drinks, her face slowly returning to normal color ::
(22:28:26) CO_Capt_Harper: What is Nickelback and why would my Sharks be subjected to it?!
(22:28:48) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Do Bajorans have folds? :: looks around for Kymar ::
(22:28:51) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: knows music :: CO: You do not want to know.
(22:28:53) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: studiously avoids the captain's eye. She has no idea what this Nickleback is, but it must be bad ::
(22:29:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: is extremely embarassed that she won, considers hiding under the table again ::
(22:29:48) CO_Capt_Harper: :: declares Lexy the winner of this round! ::
(22:29:54) CEO_LtQuinn: I think at this point, I'm just going to have to make peace with the wrongness of it all!
(22:30:03) CEO_LtQuinn: CSO: As will you, Commander!
(22:30:22) CSO_LCdr_Wright: I will what?
(22:30:25) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: These cards are highly illogical. I do not wish to know who could have created such a game.
(22:31:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: watches as Kate gathers the cards :: CO: Take out some of those confusing ones, please?
(22:32:15) CO_Capt_Harper: :: prunes a few ::
(22:33:18) TAC_2LT_Randen: SCI: But they are funny. At least the ones you can understand.
(22:33:27) CO_Capt_Harper: :: deals ::
(22:33:39) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow :: TAC: Depends on who is viewing the cards.
(22:34:03) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: selects a mildly amusing card ::
(22:34:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: The the Q? Poor grammar!
(22:35:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: drinks and prepares to select a winning card ::
(22:35:24) CO_Capt_Harper: Thankfully I have never met the pest.
(22:35:34) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: grimaces and wishes he could take his card back ::
(22:36:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: raises her glass to the XO ::
(22:36:13) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: lets out a breath of relief as his card wins, afraid his card would be in bad taste, but that wasn't his intention ::
(22:36:19) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: I believe General Order 15 seems to have been ignored often.
(22:36:25) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: nods appreciatively to Wright ::
(22:36:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: didn't take it n a bad way ::
(22:36:51) CO_Capt_Harper: SCI: Colonel McKnight rarely let Admiral Blackthorne get away with it.
(22:36:57) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: thinks her card will resonate with T'Lira ::
(22:37:06) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: nods significantly to T'Lira :: SCI: Indeed it has.
(22:37:06) CO_Capt_Harper: :: cheers! ::
(22:37:12) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Whaaaat! :: was wrong ::
(22:37:14) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: One of these cards is not like the others.
(22:37:18) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks up :: I think someone is bucking for a promotion.
(22:38:09) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: smirks :: that would be quite the disaster.
(22:38:24) TAC_2LT_Randen: CO: Why is there a lack of seat belts on the Bridge?
(22:38:35) CO_Capt_Harper: TAC: Tradition.
(22:39:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: TAC: Incredible lack of foresight.
(22:39:12) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI: What's an Obamacare?
(22:39:37) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: You want seatbelts? If you can deal with having a couple of us in your way during the duty shift, I can get you seatbelts.
(22:39:43) SCI_Lt_TLira: CSO: I do not know. I merely wished to be rid of that particular card.
(22:40:08) CO_Capt_Harper: CEO: Really? I had figured that after a couple hundred years of these starships without them, they simply were not possible.
(22:40:29) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: thinks Quinn will laugh at her cards ::
(22:40:40) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Um...actually, they're already on YOUR chair.
(22:40:54) CO_Capt_Harper: CEO: I have never noticed.
(22:41:23) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: was wrong ::
(22:41:53) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Well, they're not visible. But take a look at your arm panel next time. Red key, lower left corner.
(22:42:12) CO_Capt_Harper: CEO: Remarkable!
(22:42:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: waves down a server for another drink ::
(22:42:33) CO_Capt_Harper: :: notes that her glass is empty and does likewise ::
(22:42:59) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Yeah, that was a standard upgrade...years before I became chief. Not sure why it wasn't made standard bridge-wide. But I can fix that.
(22:43:09) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: her tea is cold, but manageable. She wouldn't admit it, but this game was rather amusing ::
(22:43:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: wonders if Quinn is going to play ::
(22:43:37) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Apparently not. ::
(22:43:38) CO_Capt_Harper: :: stares at those cards ::
(22:43:58) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: really hopes she doesn't win ::
(22:44:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: relief ::
(22:44:10) CO_Capt_Harper: I shall have to make a note of that for the next away team.
(22:44:22) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: I would prefer to leave the hamster unharmed.
(22:44:24) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: sage nods his appreciation ::
(22:44:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: feels pretty confident about her choice, grinning ::
(22:44:56) CO_Capt_Harper: :: gets her fresh drink as the cards roll in ::
(22:45:15) CO_Capt_Harper: Obviously!
(22:45:23) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: Small, eh?
(22:45:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: cheers! :: CO: Though I'm a fan of large doses.
(22:45:26) SCI_Lt_TLira: Explosive decompression is healthy for you if you avoid it altogether.
(22:45:46) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Let's see those cards, folks!
(22:45:47) CO_Capt_Harper: :: grins at Lexy :: I hope so!
(22:46:01) CEO_LtQuinn: SCI: No dose is small!
(22:46:33) SCI_Lt_TLira: CEO: Hence why I recommend avoiding it entirely. One can expect a much longer lifespan that way.
(22:47:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: shrugs ::
(22:48:12) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sticks with the theme ::
(22:48:22) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: What is a 'wazoo'?
(22:48:33) CO_Capt_Harper: Is it like a triffoo?
(22:48:39) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI: I think it's this instrument that makes a buzzy noise.
(22:48:54) SCI_Lt_TLira: CSO: Then why would one owe payments in such a fashion?
(22:49:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: plays the best cards, doesn't see how they could not win ::
(22:49:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI: Musical instruments could be very expensive before replicators.
(22:49:51) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: this his choice of cards makes the most sense ::
(22:50:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Wolfe: My cards are the scientifically accurate choice.
(22:50:17) CO_Capt_Harper: Do not pick T'Lira's card! She is about to win!
(22:50:54) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: does not know fashion and wonders if a 0.7 waist to hip ratio is a good or bad thing ::
(22:50:57) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow ::
(22:51:24) XO_Cdr_Vallero: All: Yes....
(22:51:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Noooo!
(22:51:37) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: I do see a correlation between myself and my ears. A logical choice.
(22:51:47) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: It is... sad that it did not win
(22:52:09) CO_Capt_Harper: SCI: The correlation is higher than 0.5.
(22:52:15) XO_Cdr_Vallero: SCI: I admit...there were some other good ones in there. I thought I'd lose to Harper again, though.
(22:52:22) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: grins in Harper's direction ::
(22:52:28) CO_Capt_Harper: :: laughs ::
(22:52:40) XO_Cdr_Vallero: All: Wow...he picked that one fast.
(22:52:42) CSO_LCdr_Wright: I thought you and your ears would certainly win. Some people are just not logical.
(22:52:59) CO_Capt_Harper: :: has a feeling on this card ::
(22:53:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: has nothing that works for this one and throws a card ::
(22:53:04) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Grins widely, showing some teeth. :: Of course! We Federation types are all about embracing other cultures!
(22:53:11) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: hopes nobody recognizes her... 'hero worship' play for what it is ::
(22:53:53) CEO_LtQuinn: So...who's Quark? Sounds Ferengi?
(22:54:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: shrugs ::
(22:54:12) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Or scientific.
(22:54:15) CO_Capt_Harper: YES!
(22:54:22) CO_Capt_Harper: :: knew the engineer would pick that! ::
(22:54:28) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: Nice one.
(22:54:43) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Smirks :: CO: Yeah, that was a subtle play you made there, Captain.
(22:55:04) CO_Capt_Harper: CEO: Well, he was a miracle worker.
(22:55:33) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: doesn't really like any of her cards ::
(22:55:44) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: That he was, Captain. That he was.
(22:55:51) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: can make no correlation between her cards and the black card, but plays them anyway ::
(22:56:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: blinks :: What's disintegrating my clothing?
(22:56:29) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: LSD, whatever that is.
(22:56:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Apparently it has many grooves?
(22:56:59) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: shrugs and plays the cards ::
(22:56:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: cheers when she wins a hand ::
(22:57:32) CO_Capt_Harper: :: drinks and licks salt off the glass's rim while the cards come in ::
(22:57:48) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: plays a truthful card with bad grammar and hopes for the best ::
(22:59:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: observes the rim-licking, remembers her card choice from earlier, is quiet ::
(22:59:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: cheers again! ::
(22:59:15) CO_Capt_Harper: Obviously, again!
(22:59:22) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CSO: Way to call it.
(22:59:51) CO_Capt_Harper: :: slides her card in with a grin, knowing she's got this one ::
(22:59:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: I don't know who Tim Allen is, but choose well. :: absently licks the rim of her own glass and drinks ::
(23:00:41) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: waits for Wolfe ::
(23:00:57) XO_Cdr_Vallero: All: Hey...what?
(23:01:18) XO_Cdr_Vallero: All: I'm not that scary, I promise. Mostly. Usually.
(23:01:18) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: almost picks Vallero :: Oh, no, wait. This one.
(23:01:25) CO_Capt_Harper: :: cheers ::
(23:01:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: doubles over with laughter
(23:01:48) SCI_Lt_TLira: CSO: I do not see how rumballs could be remotely scary.
(23:01:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ::
(23:02:10) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CSO: I must know what these are.
(23:02:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: doubts she will win, but couldn't help herself ::
(23:02:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: You'll have to wait until Christmas!
(23:02:56) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CSO: Oh, but why? Can you be bribed?
(23:03:17) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: interrupts :: XO: I can.
(23:03:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: Wright family tradition! They only come out correctly at christmas.
(23:03:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nudges Kate, points at her card and giggles ::
(23:03:58) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: This is indeed a difficult decision.
(23:04:07) CO_Capt_Harper: :: snickers, then cheers! ::
(23:04:15) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: That one was too perfect.
(23:04:18) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Ahhhh! That was the better choice.
(23:04:26) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Thank you, thank you.
(23:05:00) SCI_Lt_TLira: All: What is this... 'Buzzfeed'?
(23:05:23) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI: Context would indicate some kind of publication.
(23:05:25) CO_Capt_Harper: SCI: It is galaxy-wide junk.
(23:05:32) CEO_LtQuinn: CSI: Well, it's clearly some sort of subspace...feed.
(23:05:43) XO_Cdr_Vallero: All: Well...this one's...interesting.
(23:05:49) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: blinks :: I believe Doctor Kymar would be offended by the choice of cards.
(23:06:06) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks around the table, for the first time nervous with this crew, but he doesn't show it except for a bead of sweat ::
(23:06:12) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Naw, he'd laugh. Pick mine! You can tell mine because it's the best.
(23:06:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Awwwwww~!
(23:06:19) CO_Capt_Harper: T'Lira wins!
(23:06:29) CO_Capt_Harper: And that WAS a good one.
(23:07:06) TAC_2LT_Randen: SCI: Congrats.
(23:07:16) CSO_LCdr_Wright: And the winner of the night is... The Science Department! :: raises her glass to T'Lira ::
(23:07:18) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: claps for T'Lira, conceding ::
(23:07:35) CO_Capt_Harper: :: claps for Science! ::
(23:07:46) CO_Capt_Harper: :: picks up her drink and stands with it, the other hand on her hip :: I hope you have all enjoyed your day of pampering at the resort! You have certainly earned it!
(23:08:03) CEO_LtQuinn: CSO: Ouch. Nobody told me I was representing all of engineering.
(23:08:19) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: stands, stretching his legs :: CO: Thank you. It's not over yet.
(23:08:30) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Stands up and grabs his hoverboard. :: But I'm sure the dishonor will dissapate as I crest the waves.
(23:08:32) CO_Capt_Harper: :: raises her glass ::
(23:08:37) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CEO: Well, since I won the first round and T'Lira won the second, I'd say that's a sweep, right? :: grins ::
(23:08:48) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: cannot fault Wright's logic ::
(23:09:00) CO_Capt_Harper: To Atlantis on her birthday, our home! And to her crew... our family. Happy 19th!
(23:09:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Hear, hear!
(23:09:20) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: raises his drink ::
(23:09:22) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: lifts her mug of tea in response ::
(23:09:44) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: raises his glass :: All: To my new adventures with the crew of Atlantis.
(23:09:48) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Lifts his drink. :: Here here!
(23:10:04) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Yes, welcome! :: drinks to that ::
(23:10:22) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Chugs down his drink. ::
(23:10:53) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: Welcome! :: stands next to Kate and drinks ::
(23:11:25) CO_Capt_Harper: All: Now that the game is done, the hot tub sounds just about right. Enjoy the rest of the evening!
(23:11:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: May I join you, Captain?
(23:12:04) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Of course. :: grins ::
