Merry Christmas!

Well as much as I not really a Christmas person, I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays for you and your families.

I'll be back hopefully before New Years but if not I hope you all had a great 2011 and hope it gets even better in 2012!

I expect e-mails about any Strange Christmas antics the best one gets posted in the new year!

Bring on New Years 2012!

   Remember being a teenager and being able to drink anything in sight and hold your liquor without the repercussions of a hangover? I remember...ah the good old days. Now I can't drink a half a glass of wine without making sure I take 2 Advil and drink a giant glass of water before going to bed just to prevent the headache that would follow.

   I've heard that it's the sugar content or mixing your booze can cause it and if that's the case so much for the long Island Iced Tea's and Alabama Slammers ( Soooo Goood ).

   There are a few different hang over types that you can encounter. Why am I talking about the hangover today? Well one of my fave holidays is around the corner! New Years Eve! Out with the old, in with the new and all that jazz. So I looked around and found out what are the most common hangovers. I took special interest in #4 because that's the one I had after our work Christmas party last weekend.

The Delayed Hangover
This is one of the worst hangovers ever.  You drank your water the night before.  You wake up the next morning feeling right as rain.   You’re thinking this is gonna be a good day and you dodged a hangover.  Nope.  Wait until the afternoon.  It takes about 5-7 hrs but eventually it hits you like a freight train.

The Near Death Feeling Hangover
These are the ones where you literally feel like you might die.  You’re checking your pulse.  Your head hurts so bad that it simply doesn’t make sense.     

The Red Ass Hangover
This is the hangover that isn’t that horrible as far as its effects on your head and the way you feel.  But this is the hangover as a result of the wrong booze.  This is the one that makes your ass feel very painful and keeps you in the bathroom.   Probably one of the worst feelings ever.

The Still Drunk Hangover
You kind of like this hangover because you’re still drunk.  However, this is just a variation on the delayed hangover.   On this type of hangover you have kind of a double hangover because the real hangover is around the corner once you’re sober.

The Don’t Look Down Hangover
For some reason there are those hangovers where you really shouldn’t look down.  I call these dizzy hangovers.  They are the kind where if you move your head in the slightest direction you’ll get dizzy.  These are brutal.

I rank about 3 of the 5 here ( Delayed, Near Death and Still Drunk ) and personally never want to have issue #3...ever. I've had a Still Drunk that turned into a Delayed then over to a Near Death lasting about 2 days overall which is all still better in my mind than a #3.

Hmmm it's like a 3-way hangover!

Next we'll investigate weird hangover cures that should be fun.

You have got to be kidding me!

So I had another post I was working on full of laughter and drunken fun but that got put on the side due to finding out that the bus driver I have blogged about before is back on our route!!! That's insane! What else...we find out that he REQUESTED our route!! So I had to half rant.

WTF! Why? What for? What possible reason could he have for wanting us?? Oh because he can drive past the people with the greatest of ease? Be a jerk to every passenger and argue with them on a constant basis?

I have a lot of respect for the people that chauffeur our asses around on a day to day basis. They put up with a lot, especially noisy teenagers that are unruly and throw coffee at the bus causing the bus driver to have a breakdown then stop the bus and refuse to drive people any further. ( Another story, another time )

On Monday we get to our stop and it's pissing rain now usually the bus is pulled up and we can get on, well not with this guy driving. He makes us all wait in the rain while he sits about 20 feet away watching all of us get soaked while the other buses load up and drive away. By now myself and a few others have resorted to calling him colourful names. Mine was... douche-bag.

Tuesday. not him thank god.

Wed. Oh it was him nastiness and all. Every time I say "thank you" which I continue to say regardless and he says "ya" more like he wants to say " ya, whatever... get off my bus" because as he's said before it's not a taxi, which it kind of is if you think about it. We pay both to get us from point A to point B.

Thurs and Fri?? Not there 'Woo Hoo!' but in the light of the holiday season I've chosen not to let him get to me even though I can't wait for Christmas to be over.

 Music is my cure all along with writing. Once they're put together nothing can get to me.

Here's hoping a dozen Elves and a few Reindeer can slap him around a bit over the holidays and give him a tad more tolerance and decency for the New Year.

 If not...I don't think he'll want our bus route anymore.
