2009 hangover edition

Today I am suffering from an epic hangover unlike one I have ever experienced on New Year's Day.

This hangover is unusual because it was not caused by alcohol. Instead it was caused by excessive salt, sugar, caffeine, dehydration and staying awake until 8:45 a.m.

The hangover is also caused by disappointment. Disappointment over the fact that the over the hill chaperone doesn't get to play in the Halo Xbox gaming extravaganza whereby 21 people were playing the game in tournament fashion. Not because she wasn't invited, not because there weren't enough controllers and Xbox's to log on to play, but because when given the opportunity, she just couldn't figure out the controller.

As my son would say, "Epic fail! Mom"

This is Victor 'the intern' from Byrne. Sorry to hear about your run-in with the Xbox. I'm sure your one of the few mothers who would even give it a shot, so I think that is pretty cool.

I stumbled upon your site when doing some online presence monitoring for Byrne, since you referenced the company name a fews posts back. Hope you don't mind my snooping. feel free to read mine at .

So sorry about the hangover... doesn't seem fair if no champagne was involved!
