Feeling Rough

Yesterday, I had some errands to run and while I was out, I thought it might be a nice idea to pick up a bottle of wine. My boys - the Evil Twin and Buddy - had plans for the evening, so I had the house to myself after I bathed Sissy and put her in bed. I enjoyed my wine...

I woke up this morning, naked, and having no clue how I ended up that way. Luckily, I was in bed with the Evil Twin. There is still about one glass of wine left in the bottle and it's making me queasy just thinking about it.

I used to be so much better (or would that be worse?) about drinking - an entire bottle of wine wouldn't have fazed me. But, I've really cut down in the last couple of months, so it hit me hard last night.

It's apparent that I need a new vice. One that doesn't come with a pounding headache the next day. So far, the best part of my day was when the Evil Twin went to Taco Bell. Taco Bell is the BEST hangover helper food ever! Why do you think they stay open half the night? For all the crazy drunks and stoners.

Speaking of that... the nail polish on one of my toes was chipping off and I just picked the rest off because I planned on re-painting them last night (before the Merlot started talking). The Evil Twin noticed and asked why I had one unpainted toenail. I told him that was my "coke toenail." That's only funny if you can remember the 80s.

Perhaps I can get around to that pedicure this evening - unless more wine shows up in the house. (hair of the dog, ya know?).


  1. I must be able to remember the 80's cause coke toenail was funny. When you said that I totally flashed to "Jekyll and Hyde together again" from the early 80's where when he changed to Hyde on pinky finger grew into a coke nail. I wonder if that movie would still be funny if I rented it today??

  2. Yeah, even through the ongoing nausea, the coke toenail is freaking hilarious. A girlfriend of one of Willem's frat brothers had a bone fide, well-usd coke (finger)nail all through college, in the mid-90s... but this was in way-upstate New York, we were always a few years past the trends.

  3. LMAO at coke toenail!

    Best hangover cure for me (and with my totally-sucking-at-drinking status I had many hangovers) was Alka-Seltzer Cold Plus (lemon flavored) in a 1/2 cup of ice cold water. I hate the taste of Alka-Seltzer, so I needed it to be about shot-sized to down it.

    That shit's magic.

    Hope you get to feeling better, hairy dog or not.

  4. I totally got "coke toenail" right away! We used to be those freaks in the taco bell. Munchies must be apeased by Yacko Hell.

  5. Taco bell is really only edible at 2 am.

  6. I have yet to find a positive use for Taco Hell.

    Unless you include 'Internal Cleanse'.

    My immediate reaction to the "coke toenail" was 'She needs to cut that nail NOW, before someone gets hurt!'

  7. I can relate, with the laughing part.

  8. Hope the "hair of the dog" helps (in moderation please!) I'm so glad everyone can remember the "coke" finer/toe nail thing...ahhhh, the memories. LOL

  9. Um, my only suggestion would be to awtich to bourbon. Almost NEVER get a hangover with that stuff. ;)

  10. Hangover Helper has me cracking up. That sounds like a product!
