Saint Patrick's Day Derailment

[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus has connected.
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Hi Xanadu. :)
[Xanadu Weyr] Kiena waves!
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah: Hi!
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: Heyhi!
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: And a Happy Saint Patty's day to ye all. *shares corned beef and cabbage*
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea also… orange cake. To keep everyone happy.
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Go Irish!
[Xanadu Weyr] Ka'el belatedly snugs Cyrus. :)
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: …and my brain's gone and derailed itself. This time, in Latin! XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: I want to hear it! >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Ka'el: Pig Latin?
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: Well. It's in Latin because I don't know Gaelic? (I don't know Latin either, except for a few phrases, but… that's why the rails were so short. >.>)
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Tried to learn gaelic. Never had a language foil me before…but I never could pronouce it right.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Yes, well. I'll take the Latin because… I can understand a lot of it. Gaelic? Not at all. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Also - *covers Cyrus' ears* - derailments fascinate me. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Dic nobis Soriana.
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: Well, really, it comes down to the fact that it's a holiday with Saint in the name. A Catholic Saint. Being celebrated in Lent. By eating meat. XD And then my brain went on a ramble that ended '…misirere nobis.' Because, well. It does that. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea also caaackles at the corned beef package, which says it's gluten-free (noooo, REALLY?! It's meat, of course it's gluten-free!). 5 minute prep, it instructs: Open package, put in water. That… takes all of 5 seconds. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: Package-opening: now in sloooooo-mooooo! XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: I can imagine an rp centered around opening the package of corned beef.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea grins at Soriana. And don't forget the getting drunk on Irish whiskey and stout (I promise I'm skipping that). XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: I also pass on that.
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: Oh yes. And thus, my brain derailed, because I made the mistake of actually thinking about things like I expected them to make sense or something. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: There may be sense to it. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: …you mean, taking feasts as dispensations for fast restrictions as often as possible? XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: There is a long history of feasts being excepted from fasts. In fact if the feast has the rank of Solemnity it is forbbiden to fast.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: No… I mean… it's not taking the feasts while others do. So misirere nobis: accomplished. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: The sense eludes me. So either way I'm brainless? ;)
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus is also confused now. :)
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: It's Lent.
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus nods, "Yep. It is. : )
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: There are a few other liturgical feasts that often fall during Lent that also release people from their fast. St. Patricks day actually isn't even a solemnity universally. Though it is in a number of places.
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana fluffs and afks for a bit. Because idling, it's what's for dinner. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus grins, "Have a good dinner Sori."
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea meant that if everyone around us is not eating the meat, then giving it up is too easy. (maybe I derailed, I dunno). XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Ohhhhhhs. :)
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus camps out outside your weyr, "Let me in."
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah: Not by the hairs on my chinny chin chin.
[Xanadu Weyr] Kiena laughs.
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Don't worry Mur'dah. I'm trying to get into your mom's weyr…there is good food there.
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah: Just don't…eat her…
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea yips!
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: I just want the corned beef and cabbage.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea shares with the general Weyr populace: Brown-sugar-mustard glazed corned beef, crispy oven-roasted potatoes, honey glazed carrots, caramelized onions and smoky-bacon oven-roasted cabbage. None of that soggy, tasteless, boiled stuff here. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Kiena drools. YUM!
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus bangs on the door, "Let us in…"
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea serves it up in the chow hall. Get in line, Cyrus. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: This is why I have requested transfer 2 times. ;)
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus furiously writes another letter to the healer hall about conditions in Xanadu.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea snickers. Cyrus, you should write them as a vig and post the log. Or email it to me and I'l post it. Because it would be amusingly interesting. :D
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: …I wonder how many letters they've gotten about you. Like… total. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Top of the list: The Weyrwoman does not allow me to dine in the privacy of her weyr. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: 123.
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah dusts off his hands. "124."
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea laughs!!!
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus is totally being punished by being assigned here.
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Either that or you all are…have you ticked off anyone at the healer hall lately?
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: If Masterhealer Fraille were still alive, I would say… she's gloatingly pleased with your placement, Cyrus. For both your benefit and ours.
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Oh dear…
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah: You could go down to Kera's basement and ask Fraille what she thinks.
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus should totally hide out at Kera's place and kidnap her to keep her from bad influences.
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: …pretty sure kidnapping counts as bad influencing. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Its in the healer manuel. You have to be kidnapped at least one time….its the rules.
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: …y'know I think maybe I should skip the rest of those healer appointments. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Especially the delivery! >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: …can I? *hope!*
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Though wouldn't THAT make an interesting TP: OMG!!!! Soriana-baby has been KIDNAPPED by a crazie healer! XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: Ka'el would hunt them down. Probably with an axe. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Nope. You have to come to all of them.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea can imagine.
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: I don't belieeeeeve you. I'll go hide. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah has a spare room.
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus will steal the baby and frame Mur'dah.
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah chokes.
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah: omg.
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah: Right. Mur'dah secretly is obsessing over Soriana, so steals her baby to have a piece of her. And…keeps living in Xanadu, in his own place, with a nanny to care for the baby, because he's an idiot.
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: Okay, so Cyrus, you can get one of your own. Step one, find a woman who can stand you… ;)
[Xanadu Weyr] Kiena dies.
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: There are none.
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus doesn't really want a baby anyway. He just wants to run an experiment on the weyr. Mur'dah seems like a good candidate.
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah: Mur'dah enjoys experimentation
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: …hey I mean what the two of you want to… uh… experiment with is up to you… >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea hears nothing. *covers ears* Lalalalala….
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus just shakes his head at Sori, "I don't know if we can give your a stamp of approval to be a mother."
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: I think I need that stout after all. >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: You're a bit late to go denying it /now/. I mean, even Sori's given in to reality! XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Does Pern have a DSS I can call?
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: …you could try telling the headwoman that a kid needs fostering? XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce unquiets her knot.
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce could… dress it all pretty and Jethaniel could teach it science. Yes. I see the benefits of this. Also - we. are. going. to. DIE! *hyperventilates*
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce goes back into hiding.
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: …we… probably… won't die. >.> Uh. Yet.
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah peers
[Xanadu Weyr] Kiena peers as well.
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce: I think the baby's father would kill us? >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Yes. We are going to die.
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce hiiiiides. ;P
[Xanadu Weyr] Darsce quiets her knot.
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: Nah. Just Cyrus. XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus is not going out alone.
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah: But Mur'dah could be its foster uncle. Surely Ka'el would love that.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: What's that make me?
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah: Grandma. ;)
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: I'd rather be it's fairy godmother. Because granting whims and spoiling.
[Xanadu Weyr] Soriana: …does 'spoiling' include 'babysitting'? Because I will accept as many fairy godmothers as possible, if so.
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea: Sure, why not? XD
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus is going to write a book about Xanadu that will be a best seller all over Pern and I will retire from Mindhealing and live in the tropics.
[Xanadu Weyr] Jethaniel: I know a nice place on the beach?
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus grins and is so going to steal a baby and blame Mur'dah. It will make an excellent chapter in the book.
[Xanadu Weyr] Mur'dah: >.>
[Xanadu Weyr] Thea will read it. And offer a Best Seller critique.
[Xanadu Weyr] Cyrus: Thank you!
