I'm here. Sort of.

I woke up this morning with a horrendous hangover. There was involuntary moaning involved and trying to decide if laying down or sitting up would make the room stop spinning. Melissa was in the same boat. We texted each other complaining about how awful we felt.

It all started with my work holiday party. I had some wine and was feeling good. We got to leave the office early so a couple of us decided to stop by Whiskeys for a few drinks. I got home around 6 and headed back out to meet up with Dave to celebrate him being done with finals. I switched from beer to gin and tonics. Bad idea. Dave had to catch the T back since he had to work in the morning. I met up with Melissa at the Tavern on my way home. I didn't have anything to drink at the Tavern. I walked in, found Melissa and we left to go back to her house for Chinese food. The food did not help. I woke up feeling like death. I took the day off so I could do some Christmas shopping and instead I laid in bed and watched American Horror Story and wished someone would bring me ginger ale.

I'm going out to dinner for my cousin Alexis' 25th birthday tonight and I'm going to be drinking non alcoholic beverages. I even painted my nails with my new glitter polish. At least I did something today.

  2. Well painting your nails can be productive. Every day people wake up and say they're never going to drink again (well you didn't go that far this time) and then spend the evening drinking. At least it sounds like you had a lot of fun.

  3. 1. I LOVE gin and tonics - totally my go to drinks if I'm not drinking the wine (another love).
    2. THINKING about that combination makes me nauseous. ICK. ESPECIALLY topping it off with chinese food.
