feeling foggy

December 9, 2008

good thing i didn’t have one of these — alcohol-by-volume 10%!

yesterday’s celebration was super-fun, but oh my GOD belgian beer is dangerous. i had one — an on-tap belgian saison, the variety of which i cannot exactly recall (but it started with a ch, and it was not chimay). the alcohol-by-volume was 6.7%, which is higher than, say, budweiser, but actually lower than many of their offerings. and i feel like total trash this morning! maybe i’m just getting old (i’m 28, by the way . . . yes, josh is a cradle-robber), but yeesh.

and UGHGHGH.

i hate waking up not feeling good. after all, i’m definitely not a night person so it’s nice to at least be bright and with-it in the AM!

it was worth it, though. i think josh enjoyed the belgian celebration of All Things Good (ie, cheese, fries, beer, and meat). and i got to eat my favorite thing ever, their soft pretzel appetizer with biercheese and spicy mustard. MMM.

plans for today because my foggy brain needs an outline:
☑ grand rounds
☑ an orientation session i have to attend for an outreach program in the spring related to my community rotation
☑ back to duke for allergy clinic
☑ to the gym for cross-training and weights (upper only because of my race on saturday!)
☑ allergy reading!

there. looks pretty good, and quite manageable. and my coffee is kicking in, thankfully. i have no idea how some of my fellow residents are able to go out during the week on a fairly routine basis, but they have my respect and admiration. apparently, my body can handle the abuse of a 20-mile training run better than it does 1 belgian beer!
