So Yeah ...

So yeah ... I had a great story I wanted to share with you that I heard on NPR this morning, but I'm not feeling well and now I can't remember what it was so ... eff it.

Problem is I'm not feeling well this morning (I just said that, didn't I?). Don't worry, I'm not sick, I'm just hung over. We got some good news recently so we went out to celebrate last night, and I had a few too many beers. I wasn't like wasted or anything but the problem is that I work at 6AM, which means I get up at 5AM, and five hours of sleep when you go to bed tipsy is really no sleep at all. Your liver's working overtime and you don't get any rest.

So now I have a headache ... and I can't even remember the awesome NPR story I wanted to share with you guys.

Shame on me.

Have a great weekend though!

This reminds me of that Jimmy Buffett song, "My Head Hurts, My Feet Stink, and I Don't Love Jesus." (With back-up from no less than The Oak Ridge Boys.)

He also wrote "Grapefruit, Juicy-fruit," which was supposed to be a hangover cure "to wash away the night."

Jen Daiker said...

I'm with Candyland, who doesn't love a celebration... partying with you sounds fun, lets just make it on a friday night!

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

Have another drink. It will make you feel better.

Happy Friday!

Awww (was it something about Juan being fired?)
Oh yeah we can party like we're 21, but recover like we're way older ;--)

Liver working overtime. I like that. *grins* OJ for your bloodstream and peanuts for your headache. (Peanuts are a natural blood thinner.)

Rest this weekend, man.

You're forgiven. Great news trumps all, even if you land a major hangover. ;)

Shannon said...

Sorry to hear about the hangover. I miss the day days of being able to drink all night, get 4 hours of sleep, and wake up feeling great. Drink lots 'o water!

Hannah Kincade said...

haha! :D have some coffee and a greasy meal, you'll be golden in no time!

LTM said...

You just started your weekend early. Not a problem in my eyes! That's why they call it Thirsty Thursday

I don't know what the good news is, but congratulations anyway!

Ted Cross said...

I am still trying to figure out why humans 'celebrate' by making themselves miserable!

Lisa_Gibson said...

Awww, it's rough isn't it. Remember those times when you used to party all night, come home shower and leave for work. yeah, doesn't work that way anymore, eh? Hang in there. Eat some eggs with cheese, you'll be right as rain soon. :)

I'm sorry. But I had to laugh at you, because I have been there. Only worse and 1 hour sleep and trying to get through airport security without barfing on the security guard. I don't drink hardly ever, so when I do it is BAD.

Hope you can remember your good story, cause now we are all really curious I'm sure!

Feel better!

Hangovers blow.

Holly Ruggiero said...

And the funny thing? You admit it!

Matthew Rush said...

Yep. I do. No shame in my game.

I did this last week, too much home-brew in a Colorado brew-pub.

I was all alone, watching the Texas Rangers (I'm from Dallas) lose to the Yankees in the bottom of the 8th, reading Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land and drinking homemade black-n-tans.

Oh, man, I'm still sick, and that was a week ago.

Funny how acting like a college kid after you're out of college doesn't work so great no more, eh.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Glad I reined in my celebrations Tuesday night, as I get up damned early, too.

Melissa Gill said...

So are ya leaving us hanging on the good news? And anyway it's Friday, hangovers on Friday don't really count.

Melissa said...

I'm sure the good news was worth it. See? It's Saturday now,and you feel better, right?

Simon C. Larter said...

Word. Been there, bro.

At least by the time you read this, you'll be recovered from *Friday's* hangover too. :)

Tracy said...

That's why you shouldn't drink beer.

You should do shots of hard liquor instead. Trust me, by the end of the evening you pass out-dead to the world- and that five hours of sleep is much better. There's still the throbbing headache though.

Ishta Mercurio said...

Hope you feel better soon! I don't have any hangover cures that I've tried that i can say work firsthand, but I've heard a good old-fashioned fry-up will do the trick.

Have a great weekend!

Jemi Fraser said...

Congrats on your good news & I hope you feel better soon! :)

FYI Don't celebrate with beer. Commiserate with beer. Watch football with beer. Give beer away to trick or treating parents, but do not celebrate with it. Celebrate with vodka. Heavy glass to clink, ice to rattle, russian verse to shout. And next day, bloody mary to drink.

PS Congratulations on whatever.

Ahh, the struggles of the early morning employee.

At least when you remember the story, you will have another blog post ready.

Sorry about the mini hangover, Matt.
