What’s a good thing for a hangover?

Drinking heavily the night before.

Well, here’s my most recent recipe:
1 Friday night
1 generous shot Benedictine over ice
1 boogie to local radio show hosts by boss and housemate
5 glasses red wine
Several pieces garlic damper
1 slice Tziki[sic – that’s how they spell it on the menu!] Pizza
1 shot Jägermeister
1 bottle lime flavoured beer (?!)
1 boogie to classics blaring from the local pub
1 pot unidentified alcoholic beverage bought by your mate (prob vodka/lemonade)
-1 Captain Selfish snack
Some water

Method (huh! there was no method to this madness!)
Take Friday night, preferably sapped of energy from the preceding week’s work. Add alcohol continuously (pausing for pizza) stirring occasionally with boogies from local radio, and pub classics. Return home, watch housemate cook and consume food. Note: do not consume food yourself, as this would undermine the spectacularity of your hangover. Drink token glasses of water, not too much, for same reason.

Cooking time: Allow to stew for 6hrs’ restless sleep, interspersed with several toilet breaks. Serve at 8am on the porcelain bus.

Hey that pizza is from DD, isn't it? I think I remember that misspelling (among several others on that menu). Yet another sign that nothing really changes in Katherine Town.

I will be so happy if, when I visit in a few months, there is still a waitress there who says, "No probLEMS" with the stress on the second syllable (possibly with the intention of sounding a little French?).

Too bad about the hangover...

the captain selfish snack may need to be renamed to a 'captain too drunk to think about anyone else tunnel vision snack'. a true captain selfish snack is a tasty treat created from uninhibited, free and conscious choice.
