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.
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.

The As Yet Unnamed Tequila Appreciation Society
El Presidente: Dan
La Presidenta: Clare
Paddy, Caroline and Matt
New Members: Supriya and Alex.
The SSG as always: Katy, Emma, Laura and Charlotte.
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).
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.

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)
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:
•Research and Development
•Honorary ‘El Gringo’ (probably varying from week to week)
•Resource and Distribution Manager
•First Aider (must be in the SSG)
•Cultural Liason (possibly a responsibility of foreign affairs?)
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).
