X0 Aurora Hunter: ::Joey spun around in the officer's lounge and grabbed a spoon off of the counter. Quickly, she stirs the creamy sauce on the stove to keep it from boiling over::
X0 Aurora Hunter: ::She dances to the tune blasting through the stereo on the counter::
X0 Aurora Hunter: ::Still swinging her hips, she reaches over to peek inside the pot of boiling water, watching the tortellini boil::
Sacha RuKiah: ::Sach working down in medbay, catches another bottle of solution as it shuffles off the counter from the music reverberating off the hull::
Sacha RuKiah: ::Miguel, off duty, curiously pokes his head into the officers lounge and grins in amusement at the sight:: Joey?
Arina Frost: ::sits at a screen in medbay counting the last 5 minutes of her shift::
Sacha RuKiah: ::Sach glances at Arina as she fills the pipette:: Lt Frost?
Arina Frost: ::Tony, in his quarters feelinig the walls vibrate gets up and follows it to the source::
Arina Frost: ::looks up from the screen her neck muscle stiff from staying in the same potion:: Yes, Sacha?
Sacha RuKiah: Sach grins> why don't you just head off early?
Arina Frost: ::jumps up knocking a pencil holder over:: really? ::bends over and picks up the mess::
Sacha RuKiah: ::Ortiz grins as tony comes down the hallway:: hey Tony.
Sacha RuKiah: Sach nods> go ahead.
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JIM> ::slams his book shut, glancing at his watch:: OOh, almost time. ::he swings his legs off of the bed and stands up, stepping into the hall. Down the way, he can just barely hear the music, and he rolls his eyes::
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JOEY> ::pulls open a drawer and knocks it shut again with her hip, pausing momentarily to sing into her spoon:: Pour some sugar on meeeeee ::Head bangs to the Aerosmith::
X0 Aurora Hunter: ::walking down the hallway, she sees Jim and smiles:: Hey, Brody.
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JIM> ::smiles:: Commander. You're coming to dinner tonight, right?
X0 Aurora Hunter: ::nods: wouldn't miss it.
Arina Frost: thanks Sacha ::places the pencils back on the besk and walks out of medbay and starts running as soon as she hits the hall. she rounds a courner smacks into Tony and Miguel:: sorry about that ::pauses:: Aeresmith, a classic
Sacha RuKiah: Miguel: oof...yeah...definitely.
Sacha RuKiah: <Nick pokes his head around the door and sees Sach still working> What are you still doing here?
Arina Frost: TP: ::catches his balance and looks at Arina:: next time you might want to us the breaks
Sacha RuKiah: Sach turns and looks at him: antibody titres...<Nick folds his arms> your shift's over. <Sach> they need doing. <Nick> And the dinner Brody's making for you? <Sach> I wasn't sure if I should go...<Nick> Why not?
Sacha RuKiah: <Sach> I don't know them very well...<Nick, walking over and pulling her off the stool, putting down her pipette filler> that's the whole point of going.
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO>::begins pulling plates out of the cupboard, unsure of how many people will actually show up::
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JIM> ::nods at Aurora, who continues running her errands so she can make dinner on time::
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JIM> ::heads down the hallway towards the officer's mess, trying not to let the beat of the music effect his step...it wouldn't be right...::
Arina Frost: TP: LT. Brody, you joining the feast?
Arina Frost: BB: yes, father things are going well. <Nathan> the new captain, how's she treating my ship? <BB> just like i told you last time we talked, perfectly well. now, if you don't mind, joey is cooking a group of us dinner
Arina Frost: and i don't want to be late. <nathan>
Arina Frost: fine fine, just keep in touch.
Arina Frost: BB: ::cuts the transmition and leaves his quarters wondering where Lucas is.::
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JIM> ::smiles at Tony, the music putting him in a good mood:: Yes, I am. And you all better hurry up, or I'm going to get it all. ::grins and nods at Sach:: You're coming, right doc?
Sacha RuKiah: <Sach, moving uncertainly down the corridor, smiles shyly at Jim> I um....<glances around at them> ..I wouldn't miss it for all the Taq enzyme on seaQuest.
Sacha RuKiah: <Ortiz can't help but grin> [yes!]
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JIM> ::raises an eyebrow:: I take it that's a yes then. ::smiles:: Good, I'm glad you're coming and I know that Jo will be too. ::nods:: See you all there.
Sacha RuKiah: Sach: see you later.
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO> ::dances, setting the table as the music switches to "Walk this way"::
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO> ::pulls the tri-color pasta off of the burner and pours it into the strainer in the sink::
Sacha RuKiah: Sach excuses herself to go clean up, etc. Ortiz watches her leave quietly, little grin on his face>
Arina Frost: BB ::works his way through the halls started to see a rather large group of people standing around doing nothing:: Arina! ::he said a smile forming to his face from ear to ear:: my father was just asking about you.
Arina Frost: really? how is he doing? enjoying his second retirement?
Arina Frost: BB: yes he is, wishes i was home with him, and Brennan would like some help on the ranch ::turns towards the others:: Miguel it's good to see you.
Sacha RuKiah: Miguel grins> Hey good to see you too man.
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JIM>::steps in the doorway and covers his mouth with his hand to keep from laughing as Joey dances with the pasta before setting it down on the table::
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO> ::looks up and notices him. She glares and puts her hands on her hips in mock anger:: Well, are you going to stand there, or help me?
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JIM> Stand here.
Sacha RuKiah: Ortiz snickers behind him>
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO> ::throws a dishtowel at him:: Oh you. Get the glasses, finish setting the table.
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JIM> ::raises an eyebrow:: giving ME orders? ::grabs the towel, grinning:: Alright, but only because I'm hungry.
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JIM> ::pulls glasses out while Joey finishes the sauce and sets it in three bowls on the table::
X0 Aurora Hunter: ::a time goes off and Joey jumps:: <JIM> OOH! The breadsticks
Sacha RuKiah: Miguel arches his eyebrows> you've gone all out, Joey...
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO> ::laughs:: Yep!
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO> ::turns and looks at Miguel:: Hey Migs! Yep, come on in!

Arina Frost: TP: ::follows Miguel and smiles at Joey shyly:: got room for one more?
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO> ::smiles at Tony:: Room for you? Always.
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JIM> ::watches this exchange as he pulls the bread from the oven::
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO> ::to Miguel:: Nope! Just have a seat and bring your appetite!
Sacha RuKiah: Sacha returns, dressed in fresh clothes with her hair let out of its braid and taps at the door softly>
X0 Aurora Hunter: ::walks down the hallway, seeing Sacha::
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO> ::opens the door::
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO> Doctor! Great, you made it. Come in.

X0 Aurora Hunter: ::Arina and Bobby enter the room smelling the food::

Arina Frost: ::unzips her uniform and ties the arms around her waist:: i heard this is where the party was. ::untwists the bun her hair was held up in:: got food for two more?
Sacha RuKiah: Sach takes the seat offered with a small smile>
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO> Only for my Goonies, Arina. ::grins and pulls out a chair:: Hi, Commander Hunter. Here, everyone, have a seat. There are pitchers of water and soda on the table.

X0 Aurora Hunter: ::smiles and nods at everyone and sits down in a chair::
Arina Frost: ::Arina, Tony, and Bobby take seats at the table::

Arina Frost: BB:::takes the plate putting three sticks on his plate:: what? ::looks at arina who had a smile on her face:: i'm hungry
Arina Frost: Jo, you are in luck, you have a starving Bridger over here, and we all know how they eat

X0 Aurora Hunter: <JIM> ::spoons some tortellini onto his plate and passes the bowl to Aurora:: Ah, looks good. ::grins:: How did you manage real pasta? All we ever get is that freeze-dried crap.
X0 Aurora Hunter: <JO> ::evil grin:: Ooooh, let's just say I called in a favor and left it at that.
Sacha RuKiah: Ortiz> kidding me...real pasta. does anyone even remember what that actually tastes like?
X0 Aurora Hunter: ::laughs and takes the bowl:: I will, thank you. I should probably be concerned, but I'm much too excited and hungry.
X0 Aurora Hunter: ::serves herself and passes the bowl::
Arina Frost: ::Takes a bowl and spoons some food on her plate passing it over to Bobby who did the same thing::
