Although it takes varying amounts of alcohol to get me drunk depending on the night - it could be anything from one glass of vino, to a bottle, to a bottle and a half, to just fresh AIR occasionally - one frequent side effect of drink seems to be the memory loss. I quite often lose huge chunks of the night.

Which is what happened to me last night . . .

It wasn't a particularly LATE night. But it did pretty much commence at 4pm so as you can imagine I was a little inebriated fairly early on in the evening. I have no idea how much alcohol I had, at the time I didn't think it was much, but it must have been really now I look back. Like the time later on in the night where someone asked me if I wanted a drink and I remember saying (possibly slurring?) "Oh I couldn't have another glass of wine, I'll have a shot of Baileys instead". (I realise that didn't make much sense.) Then when I discovered they were out of Baileys (WTF???) I didn't do the sensible thing, realise I was too drunk and ask for water. Oh no!!! I ASKED FOR ANOTHER BLOODY GLASS OF WINE.

Apparently I got a taxi home with one of my colleagues. I don't remember the taxi journey. I wasn't actually sure HOW I'd got home cos I didn't remember. She also informs me she had to show me where the toilet was in the pub - although I'd been there earlier that night already and should have known the way - and then I didn't come out for ages, and she thought she was going to have to come looking for me. I sincerely hope I didn't fall asleep in the toilet again! One time doing that was enough, thanks very much!

I felt like shit today. I guess the side effect of not drinking for a while (even a week) means your body forgets how to cope with alcohol the day after. I was meant to be going to another leaving night tonight but frankly, the very idea of it exhausted me. I decided to just go home instead and have an alcohol free night. (Very unlike me, I know). I have tons of stuff to do anyway, not least work on a surprise for my former flatmate M, who I'm seeing tomorrow. (I can't tell you what, in case she happens to read my blog before she comes over!) So I need to get on with that now.

Anyways, in other news, the lovely Angela from Angelaboration presented me with an award, which I was very excited about - I always like awards and I always forget to mention them when I receive them, which is very unlike me!
1. Thank the person who was so thoughtful for giving you this award by linking their blog to this post. (Thanks Angela!!!)

  1. I fell asleep in the toilet a couple of times, I can even send u a cute pic of a barbie doing that :P
    Thanks for the award :D

  2. Lol, I'm glad I'm not the only one who can get drunk on air!

    Are you one of those people that causes long queues in the ladies because you're napping!? :p

    Guys - there you go, mystery of what takes us so long solved!

    Congrats on the award, have a great weekend :)

  3. Memory loss is one of my unwelcome drinking friends as well. I'd trade that for being sick (I never am) any day.

  4. Me?!?!?!

    Woohoo! Thank you very much!!!

  5. i can usually count on 1/2 of any drink i'm having to get me

  6. YAY thank you so much!

    But before I got to that part of the post I was going to comment that I forget tons of stuff, too, all the time when I'm drunk. Unfortunately for me it's not usually 100% gone--people will remind me and I'll get kind of horrified as I begin to remember and I'll have to beg people to stop telling me. Haha.

  7. Instance after instance, after nights of inebriation, I wonder how is it that, infallibly, I always manage to find my way home, find my apartment/hotel room. It's like, no matter how drunk I am, I never ever get lost. I like to think of it as one of my talents. haha

  8. I did fall asleep with my face in a kitty litter box once though. Yikes!

  9. drunken fun! Hope you got over your dreaded hangover fast!

    and well done with receiving another award! x

  10. I'm so behind on my blogs that I just saw this today but thank you SO much! This is totally sweet!

  11. Sorry, I must have missed this post! Thanks for the award love.
