What Gives?


This is me this morning. We went to a wedding last night. You'd think I was wasted, but the truth is I had 2 weak cranberry and vodkas... weak on the vodka not cranberry. I was done with them before dinner and from then on had only coffee and water. The buzz was gone within the hour. But I developed a pounding headache and had to have 2 coffees (I didn't have to put caramel syrup, whipped cream and choc shavings on them but I did) but no relief. I was completely sober well before dancing. And yet I pretty much want to die right now. I'll admit I am a total light weight, and because I've been nursing or pregnant for the last 5.5 years (literally) I haven't exactly been working on building up my tolerance, but still! Usually when I'm hungover it is because I went to bed drunk, not had two light drinks proceeded through an entire evening of sobriety and drank water and still feel like shit. What gives? It must be related to what a bad ass I am ;)



On the positive side I had a great time and didn't completely blow my diet either. Well I did blow it.. but it could have been a lot worse... and it would have been had the drinks been any stronger! This was one of those weddings where no one dances but just sits at their tables awkwardly watching... well no one dances but my family. So for the first 30 min of dancing it was literally just my immediate family. For one song it was just my mom and I... there comes a moment when you realize no one else is getting up and everyone is watching you and you kind of want to kill yourself and your knees start to buckle, but you keep going hoping and praying that this is not a remixed long version of the song, since you are committed now and can't stop until it is over. My mom suggested that we might wake up and find ourselves on YouTube. But we, the extended Furiouses, got that party started... my mom even lit our table on fire much to our amusement. We had a great time and I am often reminded of how lucky I am to have such a fun family. Thanks for a good night.. you know who you are. And I big thanks to Mr. Furious who bore full parental responsibility through the wedding and will quite possibly need to today as well!

As the hostess/woman at the door said when we left, "You're husband is awesome!"

I believe earlier it was something along the lines of "You're Dad of the Year."

Don't worry, I won't let it go to my head.

I can see that!

Wow, you are a lightweight :). But that's a good thing. It doesn't take 3 or 4 long island iced teas to get you buzzed like it does my wife.

I love dancing at weddings. I used to be one of those awkward sit-in-my-chair types, but then I got older and stopped caring that I look like a typical white boy dancing.

Two regular strength drinks and I'm pretty much on the floor! Mr Furious can tell many a tale of my bizarre drunken behavior... lets just say it doesn't take much for me to start walking around with a garbage can on my head... or licking cars...lying down on sidewalks... I could go on and on...

Your family rocks! I can't tell you how many weddings I've attended and thought, "You know what would really kick out the jam? A table fire!"

I also enjoy encouraging wedding dancers by yelling, "Fame costs and right here is where you start paying - IN SWEAT!" a la debbie allen.

I'm sorry I missed the fire! I was in the hotel room with the kids.

Apparently camera straps and candles are a bad combination... I saw the melted aftermath.
