Went out to a book launch last night and enjoyed myself far too much at the party. Getting in at 1-10am on a school night is not a good idea especially when bedtime is normally before 10-00pm. I haven’t got a sicky/nasty hangover I just feel really tired.
Bizarrely this seems to have had a positive effect on my productivity. In know that in order to make the day go quickly I need to keep busy. Because I am a bit ropey I am having to really concentrate on what I am doing and so I am thinking about it more than I normally would. The net result is that I am getting a lot done which is always good on a Friday afternoon.
A little light bulb appeared above my head when I put this all together, maybe I should work with a hangover more often. I could test it out. I am working tomorrow morning, its a training session on complaints handling. If I go and get sloshed tonight then maybe I will really concentrate on the training and absorb all of the useful information like a big red eyed, twitchy, slightly smelly sponge. Me and my hangover a room full of barristers, powerpoint presentations, role playing exercises and enthusiatic trainers telling us all about how to handle complaints and learn from them.
I think the fact that I am actually considering it as a genuine possibility has just disproved my theory. Oh well early night with the Kindle and a glass of bed squash it is.
