To get into the Christmas-spirit the company invited all of us
and our partners for a getogether at the Party Company's Eccentric
Club in Amsterdam.
OK, so this doesn't have much to do with the Christmas-spirit as such. Point is we enjoyed ourselves, got to meet some of the faces behind some of the new names and basically had a ball (did I already mention we enjoyed ourselves ? :)
From the Rotterdam' offices a bus took us to Amsterdam where
it was 'only a short walk' in the bloody cold to the Eccentric.
During the evening a couple of artists (some of whom were well known by some of us) performed what you could call a floor-show or variety-show.
You'll have to excuse me for not really remembering what the floor-show was all about. Between eating, talking to my colleague's and their partners and taking a couple of pictures for some of my colleague's who, even after consumption of quite some alcohol, were not bold enough to take them themselve(s), I had little time left to really focus on the story at hand. There was some dead guy involved, all the showgirls were into this one character and another guy was into one of the showgirls (and I'm only talking about the artists here, not the odd spectator that was 'into the showgirls' too :). That's about the size of it I think.
As always the evening passed way too quickly. So back into the
cold and to the bus it was. Well, for those of us heading back to
Rotterdam anyway, not sure what the other bunch did. Most
of us behaved very well on the way back :) Back at the office
some had planned ahead and brought sleepinggear to spend the
night there. Others just stayed 'for a while' and after a healthy
anti-hangover-snack (too late for some of us :) we killed the
time a bit by playing lan-games.
And yes, some of these can be so addictive that before you know it it's time to go to work again. Luckily we were already there :)
Anyway, below are the pictorials, with some comments from my
Some of the pictures were withheld to protect the innocent.
Unfortunately none of the pictures I'm in qualified as such, so be warned!
Hope they give a good impression of the fun we had.
