Aye sir, I recall. Even chatted with Ball-puncher Missy a little while ago. She says "Hi."

I still find it hilarious that someone thought Brian was the elder brother.

One of my favorite blackout stories is from a few years back. I go down to the bar downstairs, and one of the regular ladies comes up to me and says, "Thanks again for last night."
"What did I do last night?" I asked.
She proceeded to explain how just after bar close the previous evening I ran into her outside of the bar on my way home from a different bar. Some guy was hassling her, so I ran him off and sat with her until her ride showed up. "It kind of bothers me that you don't remember that."
I just shrugged and smiled, "Isn't even more awesome that I did that while I was blacked out."

Oh, and supposedly I helped saved Ruiner's life at MassCon when I was blacked out.

Never quite understood that one. I mean, for starters I have a quite different accent and look like Keith Richards on a bad day. So, wtf? Still, it was humorous at the time.

Nope. As far as I know, I was having a wonderful time on the Island...
I'm a permanent guest there.
The cabin sits shut-down, cold-frozen and empty, dead mice in the traps, waiting for me to drink alone there in the dark.

Apparently I offered to fight some blokes at a house party who were about to piss all over a friend of mine. He'd passed out in the garden under a climbing frame. I'm told I stood on top of the climbing frame brandishing a hose and calling everyone a cunt.

I also once woke up in a field. Still have no idea why.

I've fallen asleep in a few fields before, but I never seem to wake up in them. Some form of diwine[sic] intervention I reckon

I have just about zero memory of yesterday. Saw shane-o-matic, lost shane-o-matic, went to the pub. pretended to be Douglas Denholm and was apparently found in the close by friends of a neighbour. I woke up in my best jimjams, but with the curtains open. I also have copious bruising

Blacking out is one of the wierdest things I have experienced everytime it seems like I black out it seems like i wake up remembering laying down and sleeping thinking just got drunk then went to bed without anything eventful occurring. then when I inquire with the people around me about the reason I now have a limp they give me an extraordinarily embarrassing story about me some how dropping my underwear in the toilet and stumbling around for an hour or two.
