I have a bastard behind the eyes. I have the shakes. I am fucked. I have Panadol. I have Coffee and if I don't take them, I'm going to die.
It is of course, all my own fault, hangovers are rarely other people's fault, despite the twittering hashtags #blamewotsisname which people use nowadays and I find mildly annoying.
In his book Man Walks Into a Pub, literary genius Pete Brown lists the different words for being pissed. Me in my less literary genius status am trying to think of various names for hangovers. Here are a few, if you have one you'd like to share, by all means do so.
'The gift that keeps on giving' - Neil Bowness
'The big wet dog' Boak and/or Bailey - WTF?
'DeadGhost' - Ghostie
'Rough as nuts'
'a pig shat in my head'
'killed a few braincells last night'
'monged' - one of my staff that will remain nameless and no, I don't care what they do in their spare time ;)
'Cholera' - apparently this is what Graeme Coates calls his.
'Beeriod' Thank you Nedley
'lotal trontal fobotamy' - Broadford Brewer - I can't even say that when I'm hangin'
'Like a cathedral' - One of Emmy's staff, lost in translation we think.
'Head like a bucket of wet sand' Raymond Chandler apparently via Boak and Bailey.
'Tom' because he causes so many of them - Chris Mair, which Tom?
'The Gremlin Boogie' PG Wodehouse via Boak and Bailey who seem to be getting well and truly into the spirit of this.
'The bad man' -Leigh
'Glynn' although Simon Johnson can't mean me, he added an extra N.
'Gazeboed' 'Cattled' 'it's Rabidbarflys fault' - Simon Bath thank you.
'we're fucked!' Chris 'Paladinofhelm Collins very good sir.
'Penmaenmwar' twitters CwrwLlyn
'La Quaglia' - Leo
What do you call yours?
