ten levels of greatness

My newish friend J is pretty awesome, and he has a blog. Ellen just alerted me to this archived gem: Expert's Guide to the Ten Levels of Hangover. If I had a hangover right now, I'd be cursing him for making my head hurt from laughing so hard. An excerpt:
LEVEL 1
Really not a "hangover" at all. You were drinking last night (probably just a few beers) and this morning you are thirsty and a little groggy. While you would prefer to avoid, say, bright sunlight and loud construction sites, you're really just one slice of toast and a glass of ginger ale away from feeling 100%. Even mentioning a hangover right now makes you a sixteen year-old girl. From Connecticut.

Keep up the good work, J.

So true. The morning after a comorbidity of beer and sangria last fall, I went to work with a level 8... I only rolled in because I had two double labs and my Bio II kids had brought in food samples for their cultural nutrition projects....which they all insisted I try. Luckily, I live 5 minutes from school so I was able to teeter home after 7th period and upchuck the various baklava, tacos, and pad thai I had been forced to consume in the comfort of my own domicile, rather that in the presence of my nosy, catty colleagues, who I'm sure would have eagerly gone to my supervisor to tell her about my "drinking problem." The next day I took a sick day because I was still hungover.
My house now has a "No Beirut on School Nights" law in effect until June 20th.

Awww... I'm touched. Soon I hope to be reduced from the single letter "J" to a pictogram... or perhaps a hand gesture.

What about level 11?
Level 11 - Gina is incapable of updating her blog.

no, that would have to be like a level 16. or just off the charts entirely.
