 We had dinner and drinks with some old friends we rarely see last night, which was great! I started out with a glass of wine, but then they broke out this bottle of whiskey and I said "Oh, I don't like whiskey. when I was sixteen, my Dad gave me a glass that had a swallow left in it and told me it was iced tea. Never touched the stuff since." And they said "Oh, but you haven't tried this whiskey." (The name of which escapes me now. Pendleton, or Pettibone, or something.) And then they proceeded to make me this drink that included whiskey, and pineapple juice, and maybe something else, I don't know. But it was delicious, and I had two...or maybe three by the end of the night. 

Unfortunately, Rhien does not drink like that very often, and perhaps shouldn't have had wine first, because now I've been up since 3:00am (after only three hours of sleep, to add insult to injury), feeling crappy. First, it was a headache and dizziness. Well, that is mostly gone, and now it is just nausea. I don't normally drink enough to get hungover, so this is all rather an unusual experience for me. Now I get to go to Easter breakfast in a couple of hours without my morning coffee (because I fear that will tip the scales on this whole nausea thing), when I don't even feel like breakfast at all, with only three hours of sleep.

Just UGH.

Oh, and to pass the time since 3:00 am, I've been finishing this YA book I was reading. It's a bestseller, very popular, and unusual enough I thought I'd give it a try. Well, I got to the end, and all I've got to say is, again: UGH. The main character is flat and boring, and the whole book is this unrelenting series of depressing things happening. There are very brief moments of happiness and light, but by 'brief', I mean a couple of short paragraphs, punctuated by more depressing things, leading up the the ending, which is - you guessed it - depressing! No real closure, no happiness or even a decent cliffhanger. Just every horrible thing that could possibly happen, around a character I don't care about, that doesn't appear to really care about anyone else - oh, until they're dying or dead.

Anyway, now I am feeling crappy AND depressed. :(

Aww, I'm sorry! When I'm badly hungover I can't eat for a few hours, I've noticed - until later on in the day. Not a good way to wake up. I hope you're feeling better soon!

Now I'm curious about what book that was...

Yes, I am finally feeling better enough to have my coffee! It took half the day, though.
