El Presidente's Birthday

Yes. It was. El Presidente was 21 on the 29th of December. And, El Presidente's beautiful sister was also 18 on the 27th Jan, SO, we had a monumental session on Saturday (28th) at a bar in London. Fantastic would be an understatement, but all my pictures are in a shiny new gallery called 'Dan's 21st' so download them if you want. Also, you might be able to add your own. I'm also gonna set up a hotmail gallery where everyone can share them but I'll email you guys.

Thanks so much to everyone who came down, it was incredible and I hope you all enjoyed it.

New Year, New Appreciation

Happy New Year to everyone in TequilaSoc.

We'll be kicking off with a round of pub golf when the 'Absent Friends Memorial' Trophy is, once again, competed for. Results to follow.

Tequila Club Minutes 24/11/04


El Presidente: Dan
La Presidenta: Clare

Gemma, Katy, Lucas, Alex, and Matt
New Members: Rage (Rootes Dan) and Houston.

The SSG as always: Emma, Laura, Charlotte, Caroline and Elisa.

The Agenda

1.Alex’s stomach feeling a little wierd:
See minutes of the 10/11; EVERYONE knows the regenerative properties of tequila.

2.Caroline isn’t drinking:
She says because there aren’t enough shot glasses. Viewed with cynicism by some, but either way it must not happen again (shortage of shot glasses, not Caroline’s sobriety…)

3.The incredible salt creatures:
A strange phenomenon has befallen our club. Much like crop circles, strange shapes have been appearing in the salt piles totally at random. Generally, though, they’re pretty cool so we’ve taken some pics and you can see them in the gallery called (surprise, surprise) ‘Salt Sculptures’.

4.Gemma’s juicy limes:
Gemma is impressed with the succulence of the limes this week. Duly noted, Gems.

•New Skill: Balancing cutlery on your face; Clare wins for doing two spoons. (Photos available. Of her BALANCING spoons. Nothing else, you sleaze…).

Claim Game initiated.

Top Quote: (Rage) ‘I just couldn’t get it out…’

5.Visit from Union Sabs:
Cam and his mate Darren came in to tell us to stop being so bloody apathetic. Wouldn’t get pro-active and appreciate tequila though (how’s that for apathy?). Good lads, though, and I think they swung most of the non-voting members of the society round. Except Cam got cheeks and proposed that Dan was more of a social sec than a President, which, of course, re-ignited a whole load of club politics what with even more (unsuccessful) coup propositions.

6.Dolphins are fucking cool:
Somehow someone set Dan off on another nature tangent, this time about our favourite aquatic mammal, the dolphin. Dolphins are, according to Dan, the only aquatic mammal which has sex for fun. Furthermore, they are cereberally complex enough, some observers have argued, to exhibit rape behaviour and indirect communication. Remarkable. Interestingly, as Gemma highlighted, the only primate to engage in recreational sex is an ape in the Cambodian forest whose name escapes me.

Tequila Appreciation Society Minutes: 10/11/04

The As Yet Unnamed Tequila Appreciation Society
Minutes: 10/11/04


El Presidente: Dan
La Presidenta: Clare

Paddy, Caroline and Matt
New Members: Supriya and Alex.

The SSG as always: Katy, Emma, Laura and Charlotte.

The Agenda

1.Laura looking totally different but very gorgeous with straight hair:
Generally we’re all in agreement that this is true.

__Spillage 1: __Caroline (nice work). Note, no tequila appreciated.


2.Caroline has a sore throat:
Well, we think that she should have a drink because:
a)EVERYONE knows the regenerative properties of tequila, and;
b)Tequila will (due to the antiseptic properties of alcohol) kill all the nasty evil fucker bacteria residing in her oesophagus.


3.Leadership by example:
Matt has a headache so isn’t drinking. Clare has a headache but is. THAT’S why she’s La Presidenta.

New skill of the week: undoing a bra with teeth (Alex can, apparently).

Thumbmaster initiated:
Fall of, for lack of a better word, thumbmasterage: Supriya, Caroline.

4.We need a tequila table of top form:.
Since some members are consistently or occasionally on much better form than others we feel this should be acknowledged. But, we don’t have an ethos of superiority or compulsion so the structure of this table must be thought about in some depth…


•Top Quote; (Pads) ‘Oh, SHIT, that’s a cool phone – what is it? Oh, wait, I have that too…’

5.Paddy proposes a coup:
Thought about and discussed until Alex initiates ‘commander says’. Dan gets caned.

6.Fisting: viable if applied to your average ‘girl off the street’:
Controversial subject and actually quite repellent. But still worth thinking about…


7.Manta rays are fucking cool:
In the context of efficiency in motion when applied to flight, manta rays are a near perfect natural design and a remarkable product of evolutionary development. We are thinking about the application of natural wing design to machines of flight. Um…planes basically, although submarine propulsion is quite feasibly a field of interest. So the Humbolt squid is relevant here as well. In fact, all squid.

Tequila Appreciation Society Minutes: 03/11/04

The (still) As Yet Unnamed Tequila Appreciation Society: Minutes 03/11/04.

See photos for what happened afterwards…


El Presidente: DanLa Presidenta: Clare

New Members: Lucas, El Fonzerino and Gemma.

Other Members in attendance: Matt, Charlotte (tequila virgin), Laura, Tim, Chris and other Matt.

The SSG as always.

(Shot Count: 1)

The Agenda

1.The cleaners in AV3 are pissing Clare off by smoking (cigarettes, obviously):
Um…well we didn’t get really very far on this one since it’s not really club business but, since it does concern the welfare of one of our members, we feel something should be done. Not really sure what, but definitely something.


2.Really this turning out to be a very serious meeting ‘cos now we’re talking about religion, hmm…actually theology in general and doubt. Basically we’re not appreciating enough tequila…

3.SERIOUS ISSUE: Dan has paid for all the tequila appreciated so far so basically we need some more cash:
What we’re gonna do from now on, then, is to have a whip round and get contributions from each member not in the SSG for the evening, based on the ratio of tequila appreciators to bottles consumed.


4.Bohemian Rhapsody is a quality tune.
Generally everyone is thinks this is true.

•Laura: first near chokage in club history.

•Gemma, being an actual, qualified bargirl has a better knowledge of tequila than most of us so is very good to have around.


5.This club IS going places. To reflect this, therefore, we feel that some officialish positions are established. Proposed positions include:
•Equal Opportunities
•Research and Development
•Foreign Affairs
•Honorary ‘El Gringo’ (probably varying from week to week)
•Music Officer
•Resource and Distribution Manager
•First Aider (must be in the SSG)
•Cultural Liason (possibly a responsibility of foreign affairs?)
•Education Officer
•PR Officer

6.Agenda item for next week:
Five (cheers, Simon Cowell) are not actually that good.

7.We need a mission statement. Suggestions at the next meeting.

Arrogance initiated (here we go again…)

Lucas: arrogant bastard > Fonz > Gemma > Dan (lost)

In fact Dan seems to be involved in some sort of strange karmic rebound after being an arrogant bastard last week and destroying Chaz. Lost every round this week.

•Star Player of the week: Lucas (mucho arrogant).

New Photos Added

Well, it goes without saying that last night's Tequila Appreciation Society meeting was possibly the most successful in the history of our amazing club. So, I've added some quality pics to the Tequila Soc. Gallery and the Evening Classes one as well. I'll sort the minutes out sometime soon but first I've gotta go round to AV3 and try to find them in the fallout of lime juice, alcohol and general mess that resulted from last night's shenanigans.

Tequila Appreciation Society Hits Score!

Being that we all take tequila appreciation so seriously, we thought it only right to share our enthusiam and passion for our discipline with the rest of Warwick Uni's committed sportsmen and women. So Score! was attended, and SERIOUS amounts of top fun were had by all…

The As Yet Unnamed Tequila Appreciation Society Minutes: 27/10/04

*The As Yet Unnamed Tequila Appreciation Society *


El Presidente: Dan
La Presidenta: Clare

New Members: Caroline, Paddy and Joey (who’s a girl)

(Shot 1)

The Agenda

1.Dan’s misconduct in throwing a cork at Clare:
Early into this meeting Dan threw a cork from Chaz’s wine bottle at Clare. With pinpoint accuracy (could anything less be expected from El Presidente?) it struck her squarely between the eyes. A real cracker

…However, he was extremely sorry and felt very guilty because actually the lovely Clare had done nothing to provoke him.

(Shot 2) 2.Chopping Boards:
Generally the society is in agreement that we need a chopping board because the juice from the limes is getting everything messy.

•Top Quote: Chaz, looking at empty white wine bottle quizzically: “How much of this wine have I drunk by myself?”

(Shot 4) Game of arrogance initiated by Dan. Tequila excluded from available materials.

Fall of drinkage:
1. Dan (vodka, wine; guessed heads, drew tails)
2. Clare (vodka, lemonade; guessed tails, drew heads)
3. Pads (after, “ I’m gonna fuck Joey up properly

…” wine, vodka)

Round of Note:
Dan (wine, vodka, Tabasco – ¾ glass; guessed heads, drew heads – Arrogant Bastard)
Chaz (added lemonade; guessed heads, drew tails)
Honourably consumed without bundering. Until later, anyway. Then it was three times.

1. Pads (vodka, wine, chocolateyorange squeezy sauce; Chaz: “Hmm

…it looks like pooooo.” Guessed heads, drew heads.
2. Joey (added vodka to ½ glass; correct guess).
3.Dan (added wine to fill; guessed heads, drew tails).

Breakages: Clare – Caroline’s glass and two more which she threw in a bin.

1. Vote of no confidence called by Dan in Clare:
Passed by a vote of five to three. He didn’t really mean it, though. Reversed unanimously.

Decided to go to Score. Pics are available.

New Members Required

Follow-up to The As Yet Unnamed Tequila Appreciation Society: Minutes 20/10/04 from Evening Classes with Dan

Well, as anyone who's read the minutes from last week's Tequila Appreciation night will see, our first night was a storming success. We appreciated plenty of tequila (except the SSG, who were still awesome) and generally top fun was had by all. But the two presidents are generally in agreement that more tequila appreciation needs to be done by more people so we've decided that new members are a must. So if you wanna join, just find the contact me button and, um, contact me. Maybe La Presidenta will let you join, maybe she won't. She's got the deciding vote. Even though there's two of us. Wait, that doesn't quite make sense… Anyway if you're deemed worthy we'll all have lots of fun.

Appreciating tequila. Like getting drunk, but better…

(How's that for a saleline? Mmm…maybe it needs some work. That'll be item 1 on this week's agenda, then).

The As Yet Unnamed Tequila Appreciation Society: Minutes 20/10/04

* The As Yet Unnamed Tequila Appreciation Society * Consisting: El Presidente: Dan La Presidenta: Clare

Sober Support Group: Caroline, Katy and Emma (although she’s late but she did supply the tequila.)

Shot Count ( /member): 3

* The Agenda*

First Meeting: 20/10/04

(4) 1. The nice warm fuzzy feeling you get through the stomach if you drink enough tequila:

So, excluding contributions made by the SSG (since they are, for obvious reasons, sober), generally the two presidents are in agreement that this is a good thing. Fuzzy feelings being good, not the SSG being sober, just to make things clear.

• Side Issue (not strictly club business, but nonetheless important):

President Dan must make an excursion to Camden or East St or some such place to properly equip himself and his friends for Boogie Nightage / Halloween.

(5) 2. Emma and Katie’s lemons in a jar from Costcutter: (Now 6) The two presidents and the SSG are in total agreement that the preserved sliced lemons so far being used are inferior to their fresh cousins with regard to taste, succulence and general lemoniness. Also they don’t have enough juice.

3. The effects of tequila on the brain:

That it has become clear, over the course of this meeting, that President Dan possesses greater powers of motor control and co-ordination where the playing of guitar is concerned when inebriated with tequila as opposed to any other spirit.

(8, I think. For obvious reasons, accurate recall of the required information is quite impossible).
