Kryptonite

It's become pretty apparent recently that Jagermeister is my own personal Kryptonite (robs me of super powers, results in near-death experiences, etc). A couple times recently, I've ended up with blackguards buying me late-night shots of the stuff, and it always has the same effect -- I'm not really functional until at least 2 pm the next day. No Jagermeister, mild hangovers -- yes Jagermeister, pray for death the next day.

I'm closing off four days away from work now. After this, it's two weeks until Colorado -- then three (I think) weeks 'til five days off, and then a month until the trip to London.

This seems to be a pretty good adaptive mechanism. Break up the vacation so that I'm off a day or two every month or so. Unfortunately, after the August trip, I only have one week off through the end of the year. The wheels will presumably come off then.

Honestly, I had my own experience with mixing Jager and Red Bull. After I got home and parked my car, I threw up on the ground, then woke up at dawn, still sitting behind the wheel.

I just got sort of sympathy-queasy there.... whew. One more way not to consume Jager.

to that end of only having a week left off after august... it makes you wonder how the average person deals with just two weeks off a year. i'd kill myself...
