Aldo's on rock breaking duty. Indefinitely.

I warned him.

*laughs*

What did he send?

Let's just say it involved another word for "cat."

Well. Nice to finally see you again.

He really needs to leave Juliet alone.

Nice to see you too.

Can I get you anything?

Not right now. Some wine later.

I was thinking we might have some wine later.

Why Ben, that's a great idea. After we get through all of this work, of course.

Date: 2010-10-16 05:22 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] benlinus.livejournal.com
Yes.

Not that we couldn't both run combat and weapons training blindfolded with our hands tied behind our back. But granted what (J) has made you anticipate, we should probably give this more consideration.

It is usually a good idea to take his aggravatingly vague hints into consideration.

Date: 2010-10-16 05:32 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] benlinus.livejournal.com
So these challenges he alluded to... that he didn't elaborate on. What do you suspect? Is it Widmore?

Date: 2010-10-16 05:38 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-ageless.livejournal.com
It could be, or it could be something completely different. Either way, we need to be vigilant.

My point is, are we readying our people for a downed balloon, or an armada?

*eyes wandering a little bit*

From: [identity profile] the-ageless.livejournal.com
I don't know, Ben. It's not like he's going to tell me anything exactly. I say we prepare as thought it's an armada and hope it's just a balloon.

Fine... First order, then, will be making sure every weapons depot is fully stocked... I should probably assign Bea to go guard the Flame while Mikhail's buried in programming language...

*making notes in his journal, but his eyes mostly staying on Richard*

I'll make the arrangements to have some additional arms brought over on the sub. *making notes* I'll get in touch with our usual suppliers and either I can pick them up on my next trip out or we can have Tom do it.

From: [identity profile] benlinus.livejournal.com
...I guess I can't really afford to join you for that next trip, given the circumstances...

Date: 2010-10-16 06:00 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-ageless.livejournal.com
It's probably best that you stay here.

Date: 2010-10-16 06:03 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] benlinus.livejournal.com
Well... we should make this one quick.. be as efficient as you can.

Date: 2010-10-16 06:06 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-ageless.livejournal.com
Like I said, I can make the arrangements, but you can send someone else out to pick them up. If you want me to stay here, that is.

Of course I---

...I should send you, though. I have other business I need you to attend to there...

Date: 2010-10-16 06:18 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-ageless.livejournal.com
All right then. I can go sometime in the next few days.

...what other business?

All in due time, Richard.

Here, these are Tom's lists of how he's divided everyone up into sections for training. I had him do so based on his own estimation of current skill level. Take a look. *passes*

*puts on his reading glasses*

I see Aldo made the list for suggested remedial training...

Date: 2010-10-16 06:53 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] benlinus.livejournal.com
Unsurprisingly. Though I was surprised to see Danny on the intermediate list. I suspect it relates to his anger management problem. ..Which will come into play once he realizes he's not in Colleen's group for a reason.

*eyes wandering again...*

Some of our people do definitely have some... issues. Ever think maybe we need another psych on board? I sometimes wonder if Harper isn't in over her head here.

Date: 2010-10-16 07:03 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] benlinus.livejournal.com
She hasn't really been at the top of her game lately. It's not a bad idea.

I'll talk to Danny ahead of time. Let him know that we've placed him in this group so that he can keep an eye on everyone there and report back to me. And that I expect him, of course, to be at the top of his class, since it's way beneath him.

Date: 2010-10-16 07:23 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-ageless.livejournal.com
I would expect nothing less from him.

Right, well, everything looks in order. We can begin these next week, along with my planning on taking out the sub for supplies and mystery missions late in the week.

I made sure all my immediate neighbors were scheduled at the Hydra for the next couple days.

I thought perhaps we could enjoy the wine on the back porch.


....Why, what were you thinking?

Date: 2010-10-16 07:43 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-ageless.livejournal.com
We can enjoy wine on the back porch anytime without emptying out the neighborhood, can't we?

Date: 2010-10-16 07:52 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-ageless.livejournal.com
So why did you clear everyone out?

Date: 2010-10-16 08:02 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] benlinus.livejournal.com
Well, what if the mood grabs you and you suddenly want to...

Date: 2010-10-16 08:04 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-ageless.livejournal.com
...bring you back inside?

Date: 2010-10-16 08:18 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] benlinus.livejournal.com
Well. It's good to know what's on your mind.

Date: 2010-10-16 08:19 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-ageless.livejournal.com
What would you say if I said I meant to bring you back inside for a rousing game of backgammon?

Date: 2010-10-16 08:24 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] benlinus.livejournal.com
I'd say you're a terrible liar.

Date: 2010-10-16 08:28 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] benlinus.livejournal.com
Well, you generally prefer simply withholding information rather than outright lying.

Date: 2010-10-16 08:31 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-ageless.livejournal.com
That's true. I leave that part of things to you.

...

Go let Tom know we approve his lists and he can begin coordinating.




....And bring back a corkscrew.
