Hang Over

Because This Is What Everyone Does When It Snows

You know, back in the day I used to be a real hero when it came to drinking, I remember years ago I used to go out on a Friday night after work, have ten pints, go home at 2am and get a few hours sleep. I’d be up for 10 in the morning and be back in town and back on it until early Sunday morning.

These days when I go out I’m dead for about three days afterwards. Last night I went to the dog track, didn’t win anything but I only spent about £5 on bets then we headed to the casino where I was up 24 quid mainly because I was copying whatever this Chinese guy was betting on. They know something we don’t I’m telling ya!

With my winnings we went out round Sheffield where I had 4 jagerbombs to start off with followed by some form of ginger beer and a whole load of other crap after that. Got in at 5am at a friends, another friend woke me up at 10 to tell me he wanted to go home and wouldn’t leave me alone until I agreed. I felt awful. My own fault I suppose. Trying to keep myself from being sick everywhere while on the motorway is definitely not a fun experience.

Totally worth it though as we got one of our friends to try and “reel” women in via an imaginary fishing rod. It’s amazing how much it actually works!

Then I was asked if I was out tonight aswell, the old me wouldn’t even need asking. The current me turned it down outright considering I was at work tomorrow morning and after the night I had last week followed by a day of work it was a good idea to give it a miss.

Not only that but it appears the weather forecast has been correct for once and now my cars absolutely buried in snow so I don’t even know if I’m going to make it to work tomorrow.

This of course has caused half of my Facebook friends to upload photos of how snowy it is in their area, like any of us need to know. It’s not like we haven’t seen snow before.

And instead of spending my day on WordPress like I normally do when I’m hung over my dad had to wipe everything off my laptop and reinstall everything. It seems the 5 hours work he did on it the other day was for nothing as it was still fucked. It wouldn’t boot up properly and after it finally did Firefox wouldn’t even start or any media players. But never mind it’s not like I had anything on here that I would have missed and any files I did need to save I managed to transfer to my main computer.

I’ll have to make sure I keep off the dodgy websites in the future!

  1. haha! It’s actually sort of on the warm side here! We’re having a tropical winter. Well, that’s a slight exaggeration, of course. Didn’t I just blog about how much I hate winter?? Very timely, huh?

    I think it’s a good sign when you can’t tolerate the party life any more. It means your not a crazy kid any more. Be kind to that body, Pete, You only get one and it has to last a good long time. (Sort of sound like your mother, huh?) haha!

    Hope you don’t have to go into work tomorrow!

    1. I even hate the music they play in the clubs, however I went into a place called o2 Academy and they just play rock music, GOOD music. Jamming to Nervana at 3am is awesome. Sometimes I wish I was still a crazy kid but I’m glad I’m not anymore lol.

      I will probably have to go into work tomorrow, I’m the only one that’s meant to be in 😦

  2. Drink, drink and more drink, what a great night was had i was only sick once, i remember those days myself.
    They catch up and you can’t drink as much, now i only have a drink going out sometimes.

    No snow in Belfast its great, but its bloody cold.

    If you want PC help email me 🙂

    1. Lmao! I was almost sick, I usually stop when I feel bloated now.

      Computers all good as new now thanks to the formatting but I shall bear it in mind for future reference! Cheers Harry 🙂

  3. England is completely different for drinking. It’s a way of life there. I was amazed about how much drinking occurred. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it was fun. But like Lisa said, I think there’s a time when you realize that there are other, cheaper things you could be doing! Haha sounds like you used to be a drinking legend though!

    1. I think it’s funny how American’s can’t drink til their like 21, I started hitting the bottle at 15 hah! I was a legend yeah, now I’m just a shell of my former self!

  4. That sounds like a decent night! Last night I went rollerskating for the first time ever and it was actually pretty awesome. Had a few beers (… or alcopops, anyway… I used the word ‘beers’ for the extra drama) and thought I was actually doing pretty well towards the end- getting a bit of wind in my hair and everything- when all of a sudden I just slipped and fell right on my arse. Now, instead of being all hard (which I totally am) and just standing up and carrying on, I must have sat there for about two minutes, feet splayed out with rollerskates on the end and a confounded look on my face.

    Eventually some 10 year old came and helped me up and I limped/skated to the side and hung on for a bit looking like a bit of a knob. The alcohol hadn’t numbed the pain at all! Today I can’t walk, I’m pretty sure I’ve destroyed the base of my spine. Totally worth it though. I want to go again next week!

    What was my point? Oh yeah. Good nights always involve some kind of horrible pain, be it vomit throat motorway pain, or achey bum pain.

    And you keep off those porn sites Pete! They infect your laptop with cyber herpes.

    1. Haha you never see adverts for drink-rollerskating, it can be just as deadly as drink driving! I know how the bum pain feels, I shattered my arse when I was in France last year! I wouldn’t even dare rollerskating or any other sport that involves speeding without the use of a vehicle, I definitely was NOT a skiier last year!

      I shall keep off the porn sites in future, I’ll have to just buy them from some dodgy guy on street corners from now on!

  5. I’ve gotten more computer viruses trying to find online WWE PPV streams then from porn. I don’t know if that makes me gay or not that I’m willing to take more risks to see John Cena win again than to see some poor 19 year old girl do some shameless things.

    I took a picture on my phone last time it snowed. Then I thought “Wait, who needs to see this?” We humans just love frozen shit.
