Buffalo Chips

The night started off at the Buffalo Chips’ (UB’s all male vocal group) House. When we got there we were some of the first there (they had their dauschand in a hot dog costume…it was possibly one of the most adorable things I’ve ever seen) and so we’re walking around, having some beer when all of a sudden it’s like the entire Gay Contingent and their Fag Hag Supporters from the Linguistics Department show up which was really kind of funny because the party just got…well, Gay. We outnumbered folks there 2:1 for a while. My department’s Gay…very, very Gay…actually, our colors should probably just be rainbow.

Even when talking to Paauw this past week about research I’ll be doing in Buffalo on Queer Speak he was telling me about the leading researcher in Toronto and seemed sort of bewildered given how many Gay Men are in Linguistics that this hasn’t been something of major study (it’s only been studied recently within the past five years)

So me, Dana and Cat (who I went partying with) challenged them to a game of Flip Cup where I was the D.D. (Designated Drunk) for our D.D. (Designated Driver) during Flip Cup so Cat played and I drank for her (a fair arrangement if I do say so myself)…and it all worked out great. Cat is the reason why I had a costume, she managed to make greek letters out of duct tape…

See…University teaches you important skills.

Anyways, we then ran into Scott, a muscular (holy christ, his back was cut…I mean he had abs…but his back was solid) straight friend of Cats…we dragged him into the car with Dana, Cat and myself and headed down to club Diablo expecting to encounter a rocking party.

Club Diablo

Get to club Diablo and we couldn’t have been more disappointed, no DJ, barely any music playing…barely anyone drinking…actually, they were mostly just standing around looking bored and we were like screw this, if we’re paying cover we’re going to a dance club…so we went up to the bouncer, had him give us our cash back since he’s friends with Dana it wasn’t too much trouble (the only reason we went there in the first place was because we figured since he and Dana were friends we could get in without cover charge…we were wrong) so we made our way through Downtown Buffalo to Club Marcella

Club Marcella

The place was packed and kicking. We made our way to the dance floor and just did our thing when this kid (I think his name is Nate…he’s a gogo dancer on the pole at the front bar like every two weeks) who I knew from at least a year ago when he was dating his last boyfriend came up to me and started dancing and I was like “hey, I haven’t seen you since pride” and he’s like “yeah I broke up with my boyfriend” and I was like “that’s too bad” so we’re dancing and he spins around and I notice that “Top” is tattooed on his back and I give him this look and go “Since when” and he’s like “since always” so I told him “show me what you got” at which point I was shoved up against one of the mirror pillars, and we made out while I felt up has abs and…other organs…later that night we progressed to a corner of the club and did what boys do best.

LoN (my friend who does the lightning/assistant dj-ing, what have you) got them to play Love Dominates by Dynamix so that was cool.

The rest of the night was the usual amount of debauchery, dancing, grinding, making out with a few guys (some good…some guys absolutely awful – like hardcore suckage – but making out none the less). Later in the night, Scott (the straight guy we dragged along with us) loosened up and…’danced’ with me (apparently he asked Dana where I went because I called him a wuss earlier in the night and he wanted to prove to me that he could dance)…it was…interesting.

I also ran into some friends who I haven’t seen in a long time (brandinsbabe), Felipe, LoN, Pete. All in all a fun time was had…oh, about that research.

I’ve been in the process of making more positive eating changes in my life; and it’s paying off
