Dr Trabeaux: ::hands D a hard hot cocoa::: obviously "WE" didn't throw this party

LCDRMatsumura: ::long black hair pulled back into a ponytail::
LCDRMatsumura: ::has even capped off the look with ballet-style black leather shoes::

LCDRMatsumura: Good evening, all. A good week so far, I trust?
CptQTolerre: ::laughs:: That sounds very fair.
Blackcentaur78: Thank goodness
CdrDwayneJohnson: :::He looked to Charlotte ... slight smile on his face as he dropped eyes for a moment and lifted them to rest on her. Genuine smile forming on his face as he was for once actually pretty damned polite and devoid of the usual

LCDRMatsumura: ::catches it, chuckles, shaking her head::
CdrDwayneJohnson: A little B&E can do wonders for the Christmas Spirit.
CptQTolerre: ::blinks at Dwayne, then Lottie, then looks down at her wassail, wondering if she's really that far gone::
LCDRMatsumura: I'll bet.
LCDRMatsumura: ::looks to the captain:: Something in your drink, Captain?
CptQTolerre: ::looks up:: No....I don't think so...
CdrDwayneJohnson: :::Looks over toward the Captain::: Or do you need something in the drink. :::Pats his tunic... clink of metal under palm.::: I never leave home without the magicks.
Blackcentaur78: ::stops dancing and picks up their drinks and finishes his as he hands Laura hers::
CptQTolerre: ::looks at Dwayne, considers:: Oh, sure why not?
LCDRMatsumura: *That* explains a lot...
CptQTolerre: ::holds out mug::
LCDRMatsumura: ::mutters, smirking::

CdrDwayneJohnson: What? :::Looks toward the others wondering what he said wrong.:::
LCDRMatsumura: ((I can't help it that my mother called me at 9:20. =P ))
LCDRMatsumura: I think *you've* been a bit too *social*.
Blackcentaur78: ::falls to his knees laughing so hard::
CptQTolerre: ::sips her drink, coughs slightly....will not say whether it's from the conversation or the spiking::
CdrDwayneJohnson: What ... I ... say? :::Looks to Charlotte::: Did I do it again?
LCDRMatsumura: You certainly did, Commander.
Cibernite: ::::Stares at the fire while listening to the music.::::
CptQTolerre: ::shakes head:: So Kal, when did you say you were going to start sensitivity training for this group?
CdrDwayneJohnson: :::Looks over toward the Captain... Kal... back to Charlotte::: I'm sorry. :::Smiles and shrugs::: It ain't easy being me, but I'm working on it.
