Drink of the Week for Jun 6th, 2003: Firefly

What we had to say

A wise man once said, "Fool, it's hot I told you, damn! Were you born on the sun?" Maybe it wasn't that wise, and perhaps he said it in a movie, but it's still applicable nonetheless. It's like 2000 degrees out there. Maybe 3000. We were going to invite you over to our office to swim in our daiquiri-filled pool, but all the ice melted. Also, the humane society said that we weren't allowed to keep manatees in it anymore, even though the manatees were clearly enjoying themselves and protested the decision violently by actually waking up and moving around a bit.

If you haven't planned anything for this weekend, it's a good time to do it. Head to the beach. Go to the waterslides. Invite your friends over and have a lawn party (don't forget the tiki torches). It's too nice to sit inside and work in front of the computer like we do. In fact... we quit. See you at the beach.
