Since Conrad didn't have work today, Muffin being the loyal Srees customer suggested that they go to Srees together for lunch today. Muffin got the typically large amount of food that Sree gives him, as he is one of the Srees regulars and brings other people in for Srees food. After getting their food, they went to the Philosophy lounge because it was an exceedingly warm day today, and it had air conditioning. Muffin contemplates the feasibility of air conditioned cities and resolves to move to one if one gets built. They have an interesting conversation about relationships in general, which leads to a discussion of fun activities to do. After some discussion, Muffin managed to convince Conrad to go to Mad Mex as per Wednesday night tradition to hang around with people, and get half price food and margaritas. Then plan for the night's festivities was set, but Muffin had work on campus to do. Conrad left, and Muffin continued working on the project that work had set him upon.

Unfortunately work for Muffin today did not have any events of note, so fastforward to when he returns to home. After a fairly respectable dinner, Muffin decides that he hasn't played Diablo II in a while, and decides to remedy this situation. An hour of play is all that he wound up getting before he remembered that he was getting a ride to Mad Mex, and thus dragged Kevin and Conrad to his place to wait for their ride(Katie).

Mad Mex was both fun and frustrating. On one hand it was fairly smoky, and thus left Muffin smelling like cigarette smoke. On the other hand, Muffin was in high spirits and managed to finish off not only the margaritas of his own, he got to finish off the ones for other people to make sure that theirs didn't go to waste. He managed to flirt with the bartender a bit before the group got seated for food. Unfortunately after people got seated, people's drunkeness got the better of them, and the insisted that Muffin was actually gay. Being firmly convinced that he would know whether he was gay or not, he objected to these accusations. The more that he fought against them, the more the group wanted to brand Muffin as being interested in men. So much that in fact some of the male members happened to start hitting on him, despite them claiming to be straight. These tactics obviously weren't working for Muffin, so after some thought(seeing as how his thought processes slow down after drinking) he decided to use the alternate tactic of changing the conversation to a discussion about the plans for 3rd Breakdown Productions, the film producing group that many of his friends in this area are part of. This manages to be successful, and they discussed potential ideas for shorts to do as a warmup and to see people's abilities in the area. As things were about to come to a close at Mad Mex, a group of trained ninjas came into Mad Mex demanding the return of their ancestral blade which happened to be used by the cook for their fajitas. Muffin decided that this wasn't any of his business and along with the rest of the group, snuck out of Mad Mex and headed home.

After the interesting incidents at Mad Mex, Muffin has decided to reevaluate his approach to deomonstrating his sexual preference. After some thought, he decided that the best way to establish this is to have a girlfriend. Thus Muffin decided to resolved to make an effort to do so. With some more contemplation, Muffin convinced himself that the Strawberry Margaritas are definitely the best, but perhaps it could just be the alcohol talking. This conclusion is something that Muffin decides to verify after a night's sleep when he doesn't have hidden biases.

stay tuned next time for "the chronicles of muffin!"

hee hee... trained ninjas and their ancestral fajita blades...

and muffin, strawberry margaritas are unfortunatly girlie drinks, and guys who drink girlie drinks always run the danger of being branded somewhat effemininte (yeah, I can't spell.). Not that you don't get branded that on your own though ;)

more people should write about other people. It sounds so much more exciting, like a radio show... lee, you could call it something like "little orphan muffin" and advertise for extra $$

Actually, I'm pretty happy being single this month and I prefer the yellow-flavored margaritas to the strawberry ones. Though it was my job last night to finish off all the margaritas everyone else didn't want...so I *did* have about 1/8 of a strawberry one. I was paranoid that while talking loudly, I would accidentally spit strawberry seeds.

well, did i ever say you were unhappy about being single? being single -does- have its benefits :) are the yellow margaritas the plain ones? those are good too.. .i miss mad mex- their taco salads, with ranch dressing, are delectable. As are their nachos.

Durn. I knew I forgot to go somewhere at carnival... (craves mad mex)... and it's half so the food, but the other half is all about the kick-ass company you go with :)

i's jealous...

_You_ didn't, _Lee_ did. :) ...Yellow are plain, I'm guessing they're "sour" flavored, and are tasty avec salt...I've never had one of their taco salads, though.

...And yeah, the company's great. I haven't been eating much lately, just having drinks, and chatting...

...Soooo...visit us? :)

"yellow" is lime juice flavored. all other flavors are diluted and mamby pamby. I will also note that frozen margaritas are more mamby than the on-the-rocks variety.

scale of frou-frou:
kiwi --> strawberry --> frozen plain --> on the rocks

your personal level of frou-frou-ness is related to this scale via the transitive property of frou-frou drink consumption. so you see, by consuming their gaye drinks you proved their hypothesis! maybe.

You need a manly drink: whiskey. Either neat or on the rocks, but neat is far more manly.

Well it's more fun to make up things about other people with a certain degree of truth. Besides, Muffin has no choice but to retaliate by writing amount me. There's only so much material that one can get for an entry without actually seeing someone in person. Oh well.
