Happy hour strikes again!
Another morning waking up with a hangover. I really am too old for this shit! Last night was a "getting to know you" happy hour thing at work. They hire out the top floor of a local pub and we get a buffet and free drinks. Now I didn't want to go due to the fact the pub in question is Edwards, and they do lousy beer. Free beer is only a benefit if you like the stuff. After a lot of convincing, and me being sure I'd drink soft drinks only, TD got me to come along to the happy hour.

Things went down hill from there. First, someone noticed they served Guinness, and I like Guinness, so suddenly there was a free beer I liked. So the soft drinks only thing went straight out the window. After 3 or 4 the happy hour ended and the general consensus was to move to the Spoon and Mars. The usual suspects, that's JT, TD, big Ada and myself swapped pubs at 6:30. The spoon had one of it's "run-out" nights ... so I ended up drinking a variety of drinks ending with Westerns "Blue Top" ... a medium dry cider. With hind-sight this was a very bad idea. I also meant to be home at about 9 ... so I was a tad surprised when the nice doormen started asking everyone to move to the doors and drink up out pints... it was 11 ... and the pub was closing.

I have a couple holes in my memory as to how I got home again, but I remember a conversation with my mum, and phoning Misty, and falling asleep with the phone still on my bed (I serious hope I hung up before I fell asleep) ... it was still there when I woke up this morning.

I met the usual suspects, minus big Ada, outside the cafe in BHS this morning for breakfast. After a "Big 8" my stomach has finally settled, but my head feels like it's stuffed full of cotton wool, and my mouth tastes like I've been licking out ashtrays. This confuses me some as I haven't smoked in about 8 years.

I think I should try and do some work now ....
