Matthew Edwards Mine is the stuffing and cornbread.

Cel What are you doing?

Ens Alexi Michelle (I'd watch out with that Seamus, you've no idea where those hands have been!)

Chef JC Gibbs ::buzzer goes off in the kitchen chef hurries back in to the kitchen::

Matthew Edwards And lasagna. ::finishes his plate and smiled::

Capt_DevonCummings Watching the crew. It's good to see them relaxing for a change.

Seamus MacDoughall Seamus-- goes with her to get some of the casserole

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::she smiled:: I love cranberry sauce with my cornbread.

Cel They are a long way from home. They must miss it. That is why they need you to lead them.

Ens Alexi Michelle ::Hurries back to sit with Boothby:: Did you miss me?

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::she fills her plate with small portions of what was out there::

Boothby Yes.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall (so?)

Ens Alexi Michelle ::smiles at Boothby:: So, have you learned anything new and exciting?

Capt_Devon Only problem is.....if we can't find a shortcut back to Earth, none of us will be alive to see it again.

Matthew Edwards ::walks with Karlie as they sit at a table with the crew::

Boothby I've been learning everything about the ship that I can access. I hope to be a help to the captain and the crew.

Sivain watches the others as he eats

Cel Maybe find a planet and settle down.

Ens Alexi Michelle You already are. Make no mistake about that.

Boothby There is a saying the Earthers have....pulling your weight. I wish to do that.

Ens_AshleyCorwin Mark?

Lt_MarkBradley Yes?

Sgt Major Calder (w) You think people look at us as a 'couple'?

Ens_AshleyCorwin Want to leave and go back to my quarters?

Lt_MarkBradley ::Looks at her.:: Yes.

Matthew Edwards ::saves a seat for Karlie next to him::

Keera (w) I doubt it.

Ens Alexi Michelle ::smiles as she watches Gibbs rush back and forth from the kitchen:: Boothby, I have no doubt that you will.

ACTION: Bradley and Corwin get up and leave the mess together.

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::she sat down next to Matthew;: this is some party here. Not like home for me...

Sgt Major Calder (w) I would not be surprised if people are pairing off, given our situation

Boothby I can act as a conduit for the captain, accessing ship's systems faster than the ship's computer can.

Keera (w) well, it's natural.

Capt_DevonCummings ::Watches Corwin and Bradley leave together.::

Matthew Edwards It sure is.

Capt_DevonCummings ::Stands.:: May I have your attention for a moment.

Seamus MacDoughall -- as Alexi is talking to Boothby, Seamus what's a handful of Hershey Kisses beside her plate

Ens Alexi Michelle And you can provide an unbiased account of events or suggestions. That will be vital for us all.

Chef JC Gibbs ::comes out of the kitchen empty handed just to turn around and go back in as another buzzer sounds::

Ens Alexi Michelle ::looks up to give Cummings her undivided attention::

Matthew Edwards ::looks at the Captain::

Capt_DevonCummings I want to thank those responsible for this party tonight. Thanks to the people who did the decorations and of course, the chef, for the food.

Ens Gaavr :: Moves over to Keera and Calder :: Greetings

Capt_DevonCummings It's been a rough couple of months since we arrived here.

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::she smiled at the captain::

Matthew Edwards ::nods as he spoke::

Keera Greetings, Gaavr ::smiled::

Capt_DevonCummings The road home will be hard, and probably dangerous.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Seamus and Sivain-- look to the Captain

Ens Alexi Michelle ::nods in agreement with the Captain::

Capt_DevonCummingsB But I will not rest until we have exhausted every opportunity to get home.

Chef JC Gibbs YOUR WELCOME ::he yelled form the kitchen then a string of curses as he forgot the hot pad when removing a pie from the oven::

Capt_DevonCummings You are, by far, the best crew in the fleet. Ordinary people would have given up by now. But not you.

Ens Gaavr (w) I hear you two are... a pair.

Capt_DevonCummings But enough talking....enjoy your food. Merry Christmas.

Capt_DevonCummings ::Sits back down.::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall -- Nollag Cridheil

Chef JC Gibbs Yep all good, like a dumb ass I am got in a hurry and grabbed the pie without hot mitts

Ens Alexi Michelle Would you like some help?

Chef JC Gibbs No no I’m good.

Ens Alexi Michelle At least until you take care of your hands? Because I'm not leaving until I know you are really okay.

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::looked to Matthew:: where's your girl?

ACTION: Cel and Cummings make it back to his quarters.

Chef JC Gibbs Hands are fine it was hot and I was able to get the pie out of them before it burnt ::showing his hands::

Matthew Edwards We are not a couple no more

Capt_DevonCummings I have to get to the bridge. I'll be back soon.

Cel I will miss you. I think I need to find something to do if I am to stay on the ship. Can you think of anything?

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::took another bite of food:: Awe, I'm sorry to hear that. ::she said in a sad tone:: I wish I could help make amends.

Sivain -- all right I was wanting to make sure

Capt_DevonCummings Let me think about it, okay? ::Gives her a kiss then heads to to the TL.::

Ens Alexi Michelle ::crosses her arms and raises an eyebrow:: Somehow I am not convinced. I think you could use a hand in here so you can take a minute to breathe

Keera ::nudged Calder:: Ready to go, before we 'are' noticed?

Sivain -- nods his head in agreement

Sgt Major Calder Yeah, we should exit.

ACTION: The next shift starts to enter the messhall.

Keera ::nodded and followed Calder out of the messhall::

Chef JC Gibbs ::smiles:: I'm ok that was the last thing in the oven everything is cooked and as soon as it cools the last thing to serve.

Ens Alexi Michelle ::grabs an apron and ties it on:: I am here to help.. so.. boss... what next?

Capt_DevonCummings ::Gets to the bridge and relieves the deck officer.::

Matthew Edwards Well, you being here is great.

Sgt Major Calder :: In the corridor :: Don't know about you, but being around too many people tenses me up.
