Random Log: Still Drunken Matteo

Xanadu Weyr - Caverns

A massive cavern in it's own right, this one has been skillfully adapted for human habitation. The high ceilings have been painted a light, soft ivory, as are the walls where numerous tapestries hang to provide brilliant color and insulation from the stone. The floor has been left in its natural state, pale pink granite speckled through with glittering mica and dark flecks of basalt, leveled carefully but kept sufficiently rough to avoid slips./
The cavern itself is loosely divided into areas, each one set up to be suitable for some segment of the Weyr's population. The most frequently occupied area, however, is the one near the Kitchens where tables of varying sizes provide a place to sit down and eat or chat and a buffet of consumables is almost always kept stocked. Its plain that on most days, this area wouldn't accommodate anywhere near the full population of the Weyr and equally plain that on such occasions when a formal meal is laid out, tables are appropriated from all the other areas.
A big fireplace is set into the wall near the Kitchens as well, several comfortable chairs nearby providing haunts for elderly residents or riders who like a good view of all that happens. Rugs cover the floor in strategic spots, all of them abstract or geometric in design and most in the softly neutral colors of undyed wool.//

Exits lead off in all directions, a big archway the largest and that leading outside. Shallow stairs to the west lead to the offices and administration area while tunnels to the east lead to the infirmary, kitchen and resident's quarters. Southwards, a sloping tunnel leads down to the hot springs and southwest is a wide tunnel, carefully roped off to avoid accidents.

At a table near the enterance of the cavern sits the young darkhaired sailor. Before him are some rather intricate charts that look more like a connect the dots game than anything that would hold any information. At this late hour it is no wonder Matt looks so terrible. He's got the tarce of dark circles under his eyes and rather palid look to his normally honey hued skin. A mug of half finished klah sits at his right along with a small castle made from sugar cubes. Morse sugar cubes are strewn about on the table next to him in various patterns.

Kysli simply stalks into the caverns mumbling about something that has to do with hidework and all, and all that annoying wing duties. Stupid wingleader position. Grr. Ahem. Stalking right towards a table that… ooh, has a wine skin and such

Asiree enters the commons area looking somewhat ruffled. Her hair is messy and her eyes have that bleary 'just woke up' look to them. With a yawn and a stretch the newcomer to Xanadu looks around, realizes she found the place she was looking for, and then walks over to the buffet table slowly, looking over the selection. Hmmm.

Matteo glances up a short moment at the enterances of the two just as he had for every other person. Not looking for someone, but looking for any distraction. Seeing that niether would provide him with such he goes back to his charts and sugar cubes. He mutters to himself, placing a few more sugar cubes in 'positions'. "Rigel… and Sirius A… no… wait… not A… B… yeah?" Looks at the chart. "No I was right before. A"

Kysli glances around and ponders. There's a Matteo. Hrm… "Hey" is called out happily, a distraction from her own worries. Grabbing two glasses she wanders over there, wineskin in hand. Time to get drunk again!

Asiree is standing there in front of the buffett table still, looking at the table, or maybe spacing off. Or maybe she's going to just stand there and sleep because she hasn't fully woken up?

Matteo blinks a bit and looks up from teh sugar cubes to Kysli. At the change in her mood since he first saw her come in, he gives a tired smile. "Hey there…" His eyes glance over the glasses and wine skin in her hands and his lopsided grin widens. A drink would be good. Enough of this klah stuff.

Kysli flops down, just… flops. Into a chair of course… right near Matteo as well. "How've you been?" Grin, and glasses are set down. Pouring herself one she glances at the other. "Want some?" You see, she doesn't know, but brought an extra to save a trip

Asiree still hasn't decided on anything. Too many choices, or maybe she's just picky. Slowly she turns around and sees two people… drinking wine. Oooh. She ought to meet people here, and drinking wine is a good way to get to know people, no? The girl makes her way to the table and stops near the two. "Mind if I join you?" she asks, smiling and rubbing at an eye.

Matteo gives a small silent laugh, though worn with the amount of time he's been up. "Sure." He gathers the strewn sugar cubes into a pile right next to the tiny castle to make room and pushes the starcharts up a ways. "I've been… pretty good I guess. Lots of work. You?" He looks up at the young woman who entered the same time Kysli did. He looks to Kysli briefly before giving a smile and a shrug. "Pull up a chair."

There's plenty of wine to go around, yep… has Kysli already had some? Maybe, sure is acting odd already. The second glass is poured and then Asiree gets a wide grin. "Grab a glass too." Nod. Ponder. "Maybe another 'skin too…" Hrm.

"About the same." is said as she turns back to Matteo. "Way too much work."
Her smile broadens into a beam and Asiree nods her head. Quickly she scurries over to grab a glass, and a skin of wine. Lots of wine, mmmm. On her way back a chair is snagged and dragged over next to Matteo. A wink is given to Kysli as she sets her glass and the wineskin down. "Thank you. M'name's Asiree," she introduces as she sits down. Oooh. She gets to spend her evening drinking with two people, and at least one of them is quite… yummy. Heheheh.

Matteo takes the glass with a nodd to Kysli in thanks, swirls the wine once rather dramatically and takes a sip. Yes. Much better than klah. Another nod is given, this time to Asiree. "Matteo… or Matt, whichever." He takes another sip, setting the glass down rather gentily.

Kysli grins and holds up the wineskin, passing it over to Asiree so she can finish it off. "I'm Kysli." is said with a slight smile as she settles in to sip at her drink.

Asiree takes the wineskin and pours some of into her glass. One wine skin empty? Already? Well… heh. There's plenty more somewhere else, right? "Nice to meet you two," she says with a smile. Asi glances out of the corner of her eye at Matteo, then looks at Kysli again. Then she picks up her glass and takes a sip of the wine. Nummy yummy, like one of the two she's sitting with.

"Aye, nice to meet you too." Matt says rather off-handedly. He looks from his glass to the young woman. "Haven't seen you around much… Where do you work around here?" Maybe she's new. Maybe. Hm… He picks up his glass for another sip of wine, eyeing the empty wineskin quizzically. Already? wow… hm..

Maybe the wineskin wasn't full to begin with… you never know. But there's an oblivious Kysli sitting there drinking. Oblivious to what? Everything. She's sort of zoned out at the moment.

Asiree nods to Matteo. "Yeah, I'm new. Just got here about a sevenday ago." Ah, there's one wineskin down and … there's the other one that Asiree brought with her. And there's plenty more somewhere else. Asi sips at her wine some more.

Matteo blinks a bit but nods. "Ah… where from?" Definately one to hear about other places this sailor is. He takes another sip. Okay, it's more liek a swig, but bear with him. He passes a glance to the glass which is half empty. Lovely. Then to Kysli, briefly, half tempted to rod her just to see what it would do.

Kysli is just sitting there happily sipping away… lots of sips beams that the drink goes quickly. Yup. Lumdeedum. Nothing to say.

Asiree sips more at her wine. Good stuff it is. And if you drink enough of it, you get happy feelings. Yup. "Oh, I'm from Landing." How boring… sigh. Kysli is eyed. No fun having someone space out like that.

Matteo gives a nod. Landing. Okay, no not terribly interesting, but Matt sure as shells'll make it seem it. "Really? What's it like around there?" Any other place is always interesting if you're Matt. He looks over at Kysli again, downs teh half glass in one swig and prods her shoulder lightly. "'Ey… Spacey… You okay?"

Kysli gets prodded on the shoulder… yup, and moves slightly before blinking and peering at Matteo with a grin. "yeah… fine." Yup, time to drink some more, wine is almost gone though, whatever shall she do?

Get more wine? That's always a good solution to the problem of having a shortage of it. Asiree sips at her wine and … her class is nearly empty? Shame. "Well… it's pretty busy sometimes with all the crafters around." Shrug. It's her home and there's nothing terribly special about it?

Matteo nods to Asiree, now that Kysli's at least twitching. "Yeah? Always liked watching teh other crafters, ya know? Mmm, but SeaCraft's definatly for me. Kinda combines a few of teh others." His words seem a bit rambly, which is odd he's getting any effect so soon, Perhaps it's because of how long he's been awake. He looks at his glass then to the other wine skin. He gives Asiree another lopsided grin. "A bit more, if you please?"

More wine! Kysli's glass is head towards Asiree as well. "Me too?" No, she's not on the woozy side, she's perfectly fine. And stiffling a yawn, it has been a long day after all.

Asiree nods to the two, then pauses. "Shards, I'm late for something… was supposed to go help… her… with something." Asi does, however, pour them each some wine. "Nice meeting you. Sorry!" And then she dashes off. Whoops.

Matteo looks down at his wine, rather pleased. He waves to the fleeing figure. "Nice girl, that. Glad she came." Stretches a little and takes a sip.

Kysli is simply pleased in general. Ayup. There's a smile as she takes her glass back and happily sips away. "Mm-hmm"

Matteo takes a few more sips. "Glad, also, you brought this out here. I definatly needed it." The circles under his eyes are a bit less due to relaxing, but he still looks like he needs a lot of rest. He picks up a sugar cube thoughtfully and stacks it next to another on his castle.

Kysli snitches one of the sugar cubes, happily not one that's part of anything, and pops it in her mouth with a smile.

Matteo gives a chuckle as he takes another sip. "The many uses of sugar cubes." He mutters half to himself taking another sip. "Ah I should get back to these things." He waves his hand at the piles of charts rather messily stacked.
