Oh my God!!! What a horror to clean that toilet after my visit there.... :oops: It was in the year 1986 when we celebrate the birthday at Dimitri's house. I remember that his mother stayed with me the whole night to watch my condition.... later I returned to say sorry and have :flowers: for the family.

That story from Ben is a different one.... I pucked the whole bedroom under and the next morning I was too :drunk: to stay at my feet..... and indeed, we missed our trip to Beja and those nice F-5's from Morocco.... sorry Ben :wink:

Cheers

If I remember correctly, the brothers H. started getting your drinks, but somehow "forgot" to tell you the amount of rum in each rum-cola grew with each glass they got you..... They also disappeared very quickly after we found you on the toilet!

Guess your memory is better than mine ?!? Who remembers things that exactly which happened about 20 years ago ???
(......it was even longer ago, I moved to Germany in ´86 and these kind of parties were where I still lived in A´foort)

What I still remember is that all of the guests (including himself) filled up Horror´s drinks that evening....
I already left the party way before the "accident" happened and heard about it days after the party.....
Whatever.....
After all these years, I have the guts to say: "SORRY HORROR !!"
...now we will wait for the other guests of that evening to do the same !

Horror redefined "coma-zuipen" that evening. I still remember the time when he brought yellow flowers to my mother. Nevertheless, correct, we were all guilty....

Thanks M. :wink: I only remember that I wake up in the morning and the mother of Chris and Dimitri stood with me the whole night! The worst part was that when I arrived home, I smell like a skunk and my shoes have to be thrown away because they were filled with..... brown juicy stuff :shock:

I returned next day with flowers and deeply :oops: .
Yes Sprakeloos.... that night I became a real man :))

Cheers to all....

this brings back memories about waking up at the house of horror ( :D ), lying in a bed on the attic not knowing were I was and a headache from hell.

But also good memories going to Lambiek drinking whiskey like water (pogues), southern comfort and god knows what. We were bad to the bone!

Sometimes I'am amazed that we ever reached home on the bycicle without accident :mrgreen:

Are you sure, Trueno a.k.a. Horror? I think the event described here took place before the night you and I went out in Lisbon with some FAP jockeys (1988?)... If my memory serves me right, your barfed all over the hotel (Braganca) and was too hung-over to go to Beja to see Tunesian F5s.. I still need those!!!!

Cheers to all....
