Talking about birthdays, Stroustrup is turning 69 today. Any design pattern suggestion for this special day?Splendid isolation!
Here in NL, even if your are 24 with gf you are expected to stay at her parents' place 24,25 December. Junior went nuts. No drum kit there.
It's like birthday party on vallium.
Dutch people always sit in a circle at birthday parties. The circle keeps getting bigger, until you can only speak to the person on either side of you. No one knows why. It is one of life's great mysteries.
The order of things is as follows:
15:00-16:00 – coffee + one slice of cake
16:30 – cheese, sausage + sundry snacks are placed on the table (DO NOT TOUCH THESE UNTIL EVERYONE HAS A DRINK IN THEIR HAND AND HAS DRUNK A TOAST TO THE HOST, KLOOTZAK!)
17:00 – a beverage is served.
