I thought alcohol was supposed to make you sleepy. I went to bed about 2 very well sloshed and woke at 4 and haven't managed to get back to sleep yet. Dammit.

I realized just now that this is the fourth time I have gotten very drunk and then couldn't sleep. At least the fourth time. But the other three times were at conventions, and I blamed it on that. Hmmmmm.

I've never quite understood that either... I would think that enough disappointed people would stop that saying from continuing in the central myth.

My understanding is that alcohol dehydrates the brain cells and thus disturbs the sleep cycle. I have faired better if I remember to drink 8 oz of water for every ounce of alcohol consumed. But then my bladder keeps me awake. At least the head does not hurt as much.

no headache. some stomach discomfort, but that's most of it, other than some general aches
