She doesn't want to be here, but she is.

Who: Claire and OPEN
When: 10PM
Where: Circean Delight

With a glass of wine in one hand and the other crossed over her abdomen, Claire shifted her shoulders uncomfortably. Trust her sister to pick the strangest, most annoying costume ever, she had only one job and that was to pack her a respectable and Claire-esque costume. Instead she pulled out a dress in the Regency style, with long white gloves and simple white shoes. Of course, she didn't have to wear the thing or even go, considering she was merely staff but Claire was trying desperately to loosen up.

So far? No dice.

Standing near the bar she drained her glass and signalled for another. The only way Claire would ever loosen up, was with a considerable amount of alcohol and so she ordered her third glass. After her fourth she would move on to something a little harder but until then she'd stick with wine, of the white variety and sipped a little faster than usual.

Cast your dancing spell my way, I promise to go under it

Who: Delia and OPEN
Where: Circean Delight
When: 9:24 PM
What: Costume Ball

As a promise to herself (and because her father pretty much said she had to) Delia was currently dressed up and standing around Circean Delight, a drink clutched tightly in her hand. This must have been her third gin and tonic, because everything was beginning to feel lighter and she had the sudden urge to actually talk to someone. Delia was no wallflower by any means but since she didn't really want to be here, dressed as catwoman no less, it was surprising then that she was starting to feel social.

Definitely the drink, she thought as she downed it and made her way to the bar. The only way she was going to get through this night (and she had to stay the night, another order), was with copious amounts of alcohol, Delia just hoped she didn't run into Danny. "Gin and tonic, please." Placing the empty glass down, she waited for a fresh one and when it was placed in front of her, Delia was determined to sip this one.

Who: Winslow and Katie
When: Late afternoon
Where: Katie's room

Katie was not a happy cruiser.

Having spent the first few days medicated to oblivion, she'd finally decided to cut down on her crutch and sober up this day. She'd worked out, gone for a swim, hit the sauna, the salon... and returned to her room to find the air conditioning out.

Naturally, she'd called guest services and reduced the poor girl who answered to the point of near-tears. Maintenance was promised to be on the way, and Katie slammed the phone down to go open the balcony doors and let a little air in. It was not nearly enough.

She'd picked the wrong day to go sober.

Zorro and the Angel

Who: Iosef and Helena
Where: Circean Delight
When: 8:30pm

His brothers were right party poopers sometimes. Of course it wasn't like Iosef couldn't make his own way around the ship, or have his own fun, but he didn't understand why he had to be the only one of the brothers to actually want to have some fun. Well, except for Slav, of course, but Iosef didn't even know where he was at the moment. And no, it hadn't occurred to him to send his brother a text message. At least not yet. Nevertheless he could see he was the only Jones at the Circean Delight so far, although his parents might show up yet.

Right now, however, Iosef was much more interested in seeing Helena. He didn't know if she was coming, but she might; she looked like she wouldn't waste a chance to have some fun and make her father do so as well. It made Iosef smile to think about Helena's unofficial quest for ways to have her father lighten up.

His eyes were wide open and gazing at the entrance, beneath his mask that was part of his Zorro costume. This way when Helena showed up, he'd go to her right away.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

Who: Kass and Mary
When: 9:00 PM
Where: Circean Delight
Rated: F for Food, lovingly described.

The costume party should have begun seamlessly, at least for the kitchens of the Circean. When she had left at eight o'clock, a bit earlier than usual, everything had been set, prepared and entirely orderly. The hors d'oeuvres had all been perfectly chosen and time, with a strict schedule to ensure that the fare varied as the night went on, each one more delicious than the last. Ranging from obviously high end, top tier cuisine to elegant twists on more down to earth fare, Kass had been particularly proud of what she and the chefs beneath her had decided upon.

Her favorite had been the mini mozzarella and tomato skewers, each exquisitely done. A little piece of olive oil brushed white country bread, carefully toasted, a leaf of fresh basil, half a cherry tomato, a small round of good, fresh mozzarella and another piece of toast. They were beautiful, colorful, and delicious.

The man who was her second in command, her sous chef, preferred the mini baked potatoes with blue cheese. The tiny little potatoes had been dipped in high grade virgin olive oil and coated very lightly with coarse sea salt. Then after they were baked, they had been split partially open and topped with a blue cheese and sour cream mixture. Served hot, they were enough to make any love of food swoon where they stood.

Hellava Party

Who: Nayan and Brodie
Where: Circean Delight
When: about 8:30
What: Tight pants and whips

Raiders of the Lost Ark and face melting was one of the best scarring memories of my childhood. )



DATE: Wednesday, December 30, 2009.

WEATHER: Very grey and cloudy, with a cool breeze.

EVENTS: Tonight is the costume ball! It starts at 8 PM at Circean Delight. A small section of tables on the first floor of the restaurant have been removed to make room for a dance floor, and there’s a live orchestra playing on the stage from 8 to 10. After that come the after parties! All bars on ship are offering half off drinks to those in costume. There’s dancing at Sing the Rage and Ossa, and live acts in all rooms of Cult of Dionysus - a pianist playing the piano bar, a jazz band playing the jazz bar, and a lounge singer on the main stage. There is free day care in the family room on I Deck, where the kiddies are having a costume party of their own!

Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve!


(Beginning to feel like a fool with these placeholders, but one more for a possible scene or solo taking place after the last... placeholder. Yeah.)

(...and... placeholder for a scene in the... evening, I think it was. Early evening. I think.)

Who: Keyuri and Lei
When: 3:30 PM
Where: E Deck, Thalia's Diner

There weren't many Deaf passengers at all, just a handful of individuals, and the group was small enough that they could occupy one large table at the diner. The short meeting had just been to be sure everyone was settling in well, as well as a social coming together. There they were all able to sign rapidly back and forth without breaking for speech or lip reading, and it was a relief or relaxation to many, if not all. They weren't the quietest group, however, with laughter and a few other vocal noises punctuated the conversations.

By the time it was over, and the group mostly dispersed, Keyuri was smiling broadly and making plans for anytime that anyone needed her help, as well as making sure all knew about the costume party the next day. Whether or not they would go, it was up to them, but she was there to help facilitate passing information and announcements.
