Post-Koninginnedag 2007


This was supposed to be the post where I wrote about my humorous activities on Koninginnedag (Queens Day). I even made the promise of a few photos to demonstrate the previously mentioned humorous activities. However, there are several very good reasons why I am unable to write about Koninginnedag this year and the humorous activities involved. Those reasons are as follows: Three Vodka and Cokes, several bottles of beer, one whiskey and some shots.

I had measured the Vodka and Cokes quite badly so they were probably equal to six Vodkas with a hint of Cola seasoning. The whisky I don’t remember drinking but apparently there were witnesses and the shots I can’t prove but I know what my friends are like. If you do the maths that list of alcohol equals about a five hour gap in my memory, some embarrassing stories and a very large hang over. This all took part on Koninginnenacht (Queens Night) at a friend’s house party which is why I was too ill and ouchy to do anything on Koninginnedag that involved more effort then breathing and laying down.

Past the first few hours I only know what I did due to eye witness reports and photographic evidence. If I wanted to uncover anymore of what happened that night I would need the help of a CSI team.

There are eye witness reports of my rather clumsy dancing and a photograph (which I wish did not exist) proves that I spent at least some time in the early hours of the morning walking around Amsterdam wearing a pink wig. This photographic evidence also shows me flicking my synthetic hair back in a very feminine way.

However, the biggest surprise came when I woke up the next morning. After the party a group of us had gone to The Absinth Bar (which I don’t remember). I woke up on Koninginnedag at 11am in the morning wearing a coat. It was not my coat. It was ‘a’ coat. I had no idea who it belonged to, nor did I remember acquiring it. Since the owner did not seem to be near by I could only guess that I had made a bit of a mistake some time during the night. Instead of picking up my own coat when we left the Absinth Bar I must have drunkenly picked up someone else’s. However, the coat mix-up was not the only mistake I had made. When I reached into the pockets looking for clues that might lead me to the identity of the previous wearer I found something that made the small mistake seem bigger. I had the person’s keys as well. I had either stopped some one from drunk driving or I had made their night very complicated. My hang over suddenly felt worse.

    Did you know its possible to take out Invader stu insurance now, its not for you but for everyone who might come into contact with you…..

  2. Tess says:

    I hope you woke up wearing some fancy mens coat [and not a womens] and perhaps one of those keys was a car key with a logo of a black stallion on a yellow shield, but I reckon you had too much of a hangover you wouldn’t be able to tell anyway… ;)

    I’m eager to see that photograph (which you wish did not exist) :9

    They have similar celebrations in Canada about commonwealth and all. I shall look in my lack of a schedule to check on drunken ness vs. hangover incidences after coke, vodka et al.

    That was on Monday, Koninginnedag. Terrible.

    Thakfully queens day does not happen in the winter so there is no ice to slip on. I’ll say no more.

  5. Ash says:

    But just think! Now you have a new coat! Yayyyyy.

  6. VallyP says:

    I hope the owner of those keys doesn’t read this blog Stu….could be reason for some serious poison pen messages…lol…you are going to have quite a rep soon young man (says she sternly, while trying to keep the snigger out of her voice).

    If you get this drunk in celebrating the queen’s about to be birthday, how bad is it going to be on your own??? ;-)

  7. JaG says:

    And I thought I had a wild Queensnight!

  8. Invader Stu says:

    Tenakalaz – That’s not a bad idea. I might have to set up an insurance company just to save people from me :p

    Tess – It was quite a nice black leather jacket but I’m too honest and took it back when I got my stuff. No way am I showing that photo here but ask extra nicely and I might email it to you.

    Dragon Lady – I knew someone would bring that up :p

    Ash – It was nice but I left it at the bar (when I got my stuff back last night) in case the guy still came back looking for it. I’m too honest.

    VallyP – Soon? Haven’t I got it yet? I’ve worked so hard at it. I’ll be taking it easy on the drink for a while now.

    JaG – You and JaB should come one one night with me, Tenakalaz and our friends one night. Between all of us who knows what would happen.

  9. Tess says:

    *lmao* how nice is extra nicely??? As in pretty pretty pretty please? …Please?

    *But we swore to serve the master of the Precious. We wants it. We needs it. Must SEE the precioussss.*

  10. Invader Stu says:

    Precious? Are you talking about me or the wig?

  11. Tess says:

    I think you should call yourself Avoiding Stu instead of Invader Stu :9 [Precious: you plus wig equals something you wish did not exist] You make me work hard for this don’t ya? ;)

  12. zed says:

    i’m so glad that i’m not the only person who does ridiculous things when drunk – and then never remembers them.

  13. Invader Stu says:

    Zed – It sounds like you have some stories to tell us :p

  14. ChickyBabe says:

    So you swapped coats and keys? Didn’t swap any women?!?! :P

  15. VallyP says:

    You lot should stop encouraging Stu in this drinking lark…how can he maintain his invasion activities if he can’t remember the last manoeuvre? ;-)

  16. Dragon lady says:

    Yes Stu I’d like a copy of the photo… for the family album, to go along with the one of you lying naked on the changing mat and the one of you in the mask you made at college.

  17. Invader Stu says:

    I’d like to point out that my mother (Dragon lady) is talking about a photo of me as a baby and not something that happened last week…. I swear.

    ChickyBabe – I need on to swap first

    VallyP – I can’t even remember dance manoeuvre and these sorts of events.

    he he he –
    as far as I remember you started groping people at one point…
    and your pupils were the size of cartwheels!

  19. Indy says:

    For my holiest butt, I don’t seem to remember what it was that I did last Monday… There must have been sumtn on my drink. Or maybe I should have written it down.
