You hear about people being guilty of “drunk dialing”. Making phone calls that are inadvisable when they are sober but in most cases – disastrous if they are drunk. I suppose in my younger days I might have done that once or twice. But I’m not a big drinker at this point in my life.
I had a frozen strawberry marguerite at dinner last night. It was fairly strong but then, I’m a lightweight when it comes to booze, so it might have contained enough to get a mouse inebriated for all I know. I could TASTE the alcohol. To me – that’s strong.
After getting home I felt sleepy so I lay down on the couch for maybe an hour and dozed. When I got up I had a headache. Okay, a baby hangover. Seriously. How sad is that?
There was an incident where I was caught “drunk emailing”. I had gotten some really bad news and was quite distraught, drank wine, didn’t eat, and then sat down to email somebody. Oh boy. The talk about that email! “…she didn’t even use spell check!” Yeah, that was me.
Now I have come up with a new one – shopping under the influence! Or something. A couple of months ago my doctor gave me some sleeping medication to see if I wasn’t getting a sound sleep at night. I took it every night for a month but then I starting getting headaches and felt sort of overall under the weather, so I stopped taking them every night. But I did keep them and have taken one here or there more on an “as needed” basis.
Last night having taken that nap I thought oh no, I’m going to be up till 3:00 or 4:00 am. I’ll take one of mother’s little helpers to get to sleep at a more reasonable time.
The last thing I remember is being on my computer while watching Jon and Kate plus 8. I know I saw the same episode more than once and they were answering viewer emails.
This morning (or should I say afternoon) when I got out of bed, fed the cats and made my tea, I sat down in front of my laptop to check my email. I had an automated order confirmation from Amazon. I’m not unfamiliar with seeing those, but this time I had no idea what it could be from!
Imagine my surprise –
"Multiple Blessings: Surviving to Thriving With Twins and Sextuplets"
Kate Gosselin; Hardcover; $13.59
And even better – apparently I pre-ordered – shipping date isn’t until December 2008!
And I have no memory of ordering it, what-so-ever. Hmm-m-m.
