So, there's me a lad who like a drinky
A few years back, i asked my lovely partner at the time to marry me and we invited around 100 odd folks to the engagement party. Jowdii, Ulofff Roggrok and many, many more EQ and non EQ alike folks in attendance.
Uloff if anyone doesn't know is this MASSIVE guy, 6ft 6'+
I am no slouch in my own right being 6ft 4' but he simply dwarfs me.
Sooooo... my wife to be asks me to do just one thing... that is don't get completely pissed BEFORE the speeches around 11pm and to make sure everyone had a drink. Dutifully i made sure all the ladies (and Jowdii) had their wines and other umbrella'ed creations and the lads all beers of varying sorts.
Comes 11, speeches over... i find Uloff standing next to me with 2 full bottles on wine in hand. I enquire, wtf man.. he just handed me one of the bottles and said
Suffice to say i was shitfaced by 11.05
Well fuck i just remember that at one point i bent over and she stuck some form of cylindrical object up my ass...ah, memories..
I remember a particularly driven individual from CF enthusiastically telling me their main goal was to remain the best guild in the timezone. There was plenty of mingling as I recall, so good odds that we did actually chat. I don't remember heights and accents though.
Oh god, the Sydney meet. Yes it was at 3 Monkeys at least for a while and moved to various other places. I remember some bastard kept buying rounds of black sambuca which hastened the decent into oblivion. That weekend got pretty messy! People passing out in someone elses hotel room, hiding shoes in the fridge, and other shenanigans. I recall going to see a movie the next day (Man on Fire if I recall) and then it was more booze that night. This was so long ago that smoking in pubs was allowed, and one of the strongest memories I had was having to go out and buy some new clothes on the second day because what i had stank of smoke so badly!
Not sure what tripped the nostalgia switch but was thinking about the old EQ days, maybe all this COVID-19 lockdown shit. How is everyone? I have been through a couple of rounds of progression servers, but got married about 4 years back and moved to Japan (wife is a local) so not much time for EQ these days :
