If you attended any St. Patty’s Day Celebrations you might be a little slow this morning. Actually what I meant to say is that you’re probably hungover from last night’s party fest spent with idiots who pretend to be Irish, seemingly endless debauchery and tons of green beer. You didn’t plan to have a hangover. You only drank five beers, but you’re probably forgetting to include the dozen you drank before you got to the bar, and you wonder how you have a hangover. Obviously you didn’t have a plan and instead just joined with the rest of the crowd.
That was last night! Instead, let’s focus on today and how you’ll cure your hangover. The last thing you want to do is roll into church or your parents for lunch and be smelling like a Leprechaun took a wee little poo in your sneakers.
Hangovers are not fun at all, and green beer, which isn’t that natural, normally gives you the worst hangover. So, in spirit of St. Patty’s day and your green beer hangover, here are a few tips to help you with your hangover.
1. Skip church. It’s a family event and no one want’s to sit next to anyone hungover who has an attractive scent which can be smelled in first row.
2. When you first wake up, have a cold glass of water and do the washroom business.
3. Have something to eat. I’m certain you’re not in a position to cook breakfast, so throw that two day old pizza from your fridge into the toaster oven and get some much needed food into you.
4. Drink another glass of water, two preferably.
5. Go back to bed, because nothing cures a hangover better than sleep.
6. Wake up in around supper time feeling much better.
7. The End – Happy St. Patty’s Hangover Day 2012
And before I forget, and the real reason for today’s post, here are some of this week’s interesting reads from the world of personal finance.
Add Vodka – Daisy does it again with another fab post called Six Annoying Work Personalities We Could All Do Without. You’re telling me…sigh..I suppose a guy could only wish.
Sustainable Personal Finance – Mr. Smith writes another controversial post called; Nobody Cares What You Think. Even though I rarely tend to agree with Mr. Smith and his views, I have to say that he may be onto something here. I do share his point of view here, maybe not 100%, however he does make a solid point.
My Own Advisor – I really enjoyed Mark’s post earlier this week on why he disagrees with Larry Swedroe and what he wrote in a CBS News Moneywatch article that buying what you know is a bad investment strategy. Good argument and even Mr. Swdroe dropped by for a comment to defend his thinking.
Krant Cents – In the eight part of the series to help you reach your goal, KC writes; The 3 H’s of Success. Great success. :)
GMBMFB – I really enjoyed the post written by the one and only Krystal on talking about money with your partner. It made me think back to a conversation that I had with a friend recently about another friend who got married. It was actually a shotgun wedding, but he doesn’t know that his wife has $25K in student loan debt and another $5K in CC debt. She (his wife) on the other hand is trying to figure out a way to tell him. And the kicker is that they’ve only been married for 9 months.
Canadian Dream Free At 45 - I’m not sure about you, but I don’t like owing money to the government at the end of the year. That’s an additional lump sum or series of payments you have to take on. No thanks! Tim actually thinks differently and creatively explains that in his post called; I Like Owing at Tax Time.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend. For those of you with hangovers, lots of sleep and you’ll be golden again for Monday morning back to work rumble.
