I had my first ever honest-to-goodness hangover today. Generally, I can drink as much as I like, and at worst, I’ll have a mild headache in the morning. However, after last night’s Pretentious Drinking at WeeM, I woke up in the middle of the night wired and sick feeling. After I finally got back to sleep, I woke up this morning feeling nauseous. I ended up throwing up at a very inconvenient time…in that I was busy at another end, if you know what I mean. I cleaned up the hotel room, and I discovered how I’m not chewing my food very well. But, at any rate, having a hangover sucks. I have chills and achy joints. I managed to eat at last when I landed in NJ this evening, but otherwise, I hadn’t eaten at all…it just never felt like it’d stay.
Oh, and yes, you did read that right…I flew while sick. Totally not pleasant…but at least I got upgraded to first class (status rocks), so I had plenty of room and quick access to a bathroom. I ended up sleeping through most of the flight.
Even though I’m not feeling so hot today, I had a really good time at WeeM. It’s gotten to where Scott & I spend more time helping make things happen than we do just enjoying the con. You’d think that’d be a bad thing, but it isn’t. I played *lots* of werewolf, with a great guy running it. Scott also MC’d the costume contest, with me helping a bit, and people loved our patter onstage, so that was cool.
