The Hangover, part 928

January 16, 2010

Ugh. Ow. My head… And to think that I didn’t even drink that much yesterday and actually remember the whole evening in its entirety! I even took sensible precautions, must have drank at least two pints of ice water! I also didn’t go on to party at Städäri with the rest of the guys, nor did I stay until the bar closed, choosing to amble home instead, listening to my Zen Mosaic MP3 player and singing along out of tune. But I still woke up to a slight hangover, a hangover that got much worse after I ate a little, which is how it works with me for some reason. Everybody always says that eating during hangover makes them feel better, but me it simply devastates. I think I might pick up something from McD’s after I pick up mum from the airport.

Silja Serenade, Promenade deck!

Silja Serenade, the lovely Promenade deck!

So yeah, about that cruise to Sweden that wonderful Mr. Simich paid for in honor of his own 28th birthday. To sum it up, fun was had, beer was drunk, and stomaches filled at the all you can eat buffet. Only half of us made it to Stockholm proper, and the ones that did make it were suffering from hangover. Although no, not all. One of us, Hacheslav, was still obscenely drunk and disorderly come morning, even making somewhat of a scene at the Asian buffet we ate at in Stockholm. He was even worse on the ferry, trying to seduce a group of 13 to 14 year old girls from a dancing troupe, then their slightly older minders, and only partly in jest. They were later begging us to drag him away! That was embarrassing, but sort of funny. He also later decided to air his little buddy, pulling his shlong out and shaking it at us at the disco. Luckily we were the only witnesses to that hideous sight. Anyway, shlong shaking aside, I guess the best thing about the trip was not dancing at the disco or drinking the first night away. For me it was chilling out at the covered swimming pool complex on the top deck on the second day, on our way back to Helsinki. Just kicking it back in a hot tub, drinking beer and chilling the fuck out with your mates, chatting amicably about this and that. Awesome and oh so relaxing. I wanted to have a massage as well, but then cheaped out and decided to spend the 25€ it would have cost on a good dinner instead. I didn’t drink much on the way back, having to go directly to work as soon as we got back, so went to bed early and managed to have myself a good night’s sleep, despite the thunderous snores emanating from the bunk of the birthday boy. Needless to say, I made it to work even before the time I promised to be there, loaded with about 3 Kg of tax-free candy, and fresh as a cucumber, much to the amazement of my co-workers.

And then back home...

And then back home...

What about the rest of the week… Hmm. Well, my work life has been undergoing some changes and transformation, and I think it might be all for the best, so far. The new boss has so far proved to be smart and effective, and I’m looking forward to seeing what he thinks of next. I did loose my office, the one I took over “illegally” in the first place, but gained a nice new work station with other techs. I am also going to be doing a lot more actual work, so no more blogging or shit like that during work hours. In related news, I’ll be loosing “my” Volvo next Monday, so might buy a car or, more probably, resort to public transport. Maybe bicycle in the summer? Will see. Also, decided to take an entrance exam for Interpreting and Translating Russian Language at the uni of Helsinki. Will see how that goes, and whether I will actually study actively if I do get in or decide to stay on the job instead. I’ve already bought the book, so I guess I’d better start reading it, then…

Ok, link time!
