Cold crawl on a tuesday, was it? What day is this?

Postby Otis » Wed Mar 10, 11:18 am

I ask that because a pretty young lady in coffeeshop Nes asked us that yesterday, and I know I had trouble remembering exactly what day it really was. I wanted to babble out a response, but in a stoned stupor just looked stupid probably. So many beautiful women here, it's Tantalus torture, it really is. I know that feeling now. With all that dope and all those women I've even learned a little literature and mythology.

I'm still hurting from last Sunday's crawl, which lasted nearly 8 hours. I rested all Monday and was still groggy but made it for the call on Tuesday to smoke some more at coffeeshop at Nes. Met up with Theguest when Nes opened. It was nice and quiet, peaceful, with background music playing. I smoked a nice one of "Mother's Finest" and remain impressed and will test it some more. It really smelled and was very sticky, lovely weed. Theguest smoked Matanuska Myst, I think. He rolled me a joint which had good shape and function and passed the inspection test. Thanks, theguest. Nice to have volunteer rollers around.

Went from there to Greenhouse Centrum. Place was packed and I could not fit in, so we walked just around the corner and visited coffeeshop Exstacy and that might be mispelled. Nice vibes, lots of plants and windows, good coffee. Quite a few locals or Dutch at least coming in getting weed to go. There was a customer sitting at the bar that I swear was John Travolta. I didn't ask. Theguest smoked another full joint and I did a few bowls. He's a party man for sure.

Left from there to head to Old Church. I wanted to smile at Sabrina but she wasn't there. It was very cold out and I hurried to get warm. Brisk, eye-watering cold and windy too. Brrrrrr..... We went upstairs at Old Church and had the pleasure of about 7 "Fair Spanish Ladies" sitting upstairs also. I swore they were in their 20's but Theguest differs, thinks they are younger. Sure were wonderful ladies in any case, chatting away, smoking, making lots of cheerful noises which I could not understand. Theguest rolled me another joint of something, he had a joint of something, memory fades because the Spanish ladies had distracted me. We enjoyed the window view for a long time and could not decide if the downstairs bartender was gay or it was just some sort of fashion. Life is troubling at times and I yearn for answers.

Well gotta go, need to be back at Tweede Kamer in a few hours and have a journey to make to get there. Wish I didn't have to fight such cold weather. Wish I had the 7 fair Spanish Ladies with me. Wish I was 20 again too.

Otis, I'm dead sober, but I expect I'll be over it soon.

I just love it when there is talk of giant ghanja joints being rolled. Dam, I sure would have loved to seen that one Patrick is talking about... How much ghanja did you fellows have in that joint Patrick? Must have been a mighty smoker indeed.

Maybe Quentin Tarantino was filming a prelude to Pulp Fiction to when Vincent Vega was spending so much time in Amsterdam..

Ah, so you remember the song? "Farewell and adieu, to the fair Spanish ladies..." and I was thinking of that as they began packing their stuff up and kept looking over at us. We could have made that upstairs shake, rock, rattle and roll for sure! And all we did was smoke up the place. :-(

Otis, with spanish ladies on his mind again.

Nearly three years actually.
Time has really flown by, and I too ramble through pages, in my mind. The days gone by, and the laughs that were shared. Still hard to believe how fast time has went by.
