My Most Favourite Thing In All The World

Last night, it was Swiss Beer

Today, it's definitely Dafalgan!

Should be Aspirin or Ibuprofen to avoid giving your liver a double whacking

Dafalgan is relatively safe. One only has to know that you can't go over 4g/day that means 8 tablets.

Re: My Most Favourite Thing In All The World

Aspirin can cause stomach irritation - not good if your stomach is a bit dodgy anyway.

Best thing is to remember to drink a load of water and eat something when getting home. Also, Redoxon concentrated Vit C and Zinc is very good to drink before bed. Especially remember to brush your teeth after a boozing session - makes a big difference in the morning!

Of course, if you can remember to do all that you probably weren't so drunk as to need to do it

It just makes you feel considerably less cruddy the next morning. One less irritation when you wake up.

The detergent in the toothpaste (the same stuff that makes orange juice taste yucky after brushing) deters whatever it is that normally crawls in your mouth and dies.

Popping a couple of paracetomol or aspirin with the water also helps.

Re: My Most Favourite Thing In All The World

Hangover cure: a very big breakfast with lot of fresh fruits.. I would recommend bagel /cream cheese /bacon and all the fat you can master...with decent coffee ...and afterwards a looong bath...

Before: I used to bring to a friend Chasers from US, pills to swallow before you start drinking.. generally said to help.. dont know if they are available here though, probably not..

I thought when I left Switzerland
I would start anew
Yet here I am, near two years on
With a case of Deja Vu

Re: My Most Favourite Thing In All The World

My hangover cure is loads of water, a 400mg Ibuprufen, a short sit and think in the small room and then a large breakfast - McDonald's Big Mac Large Menu is excellent and real Coke (not diet, you need the sugar)

Re: My Most Favourite Thing In All The World

Most favourite things....


Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,
brown paper packages tied up with strings,
these are a few of my favorite things.

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels,
door bells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles.
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings.
these are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in a white dresses with a blue satin sashes,
snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes,
silver white winters that melt into springs,
these are a few of my favorite things.

When the dog bites, when the bee stings,
when I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I don't feel so bad.

The little bump on the top of a 14-week-old puppy's head.



(Hope dogpa didn't drop her when she was a wee pup.)

Does this apply also if the dog isn't on a leash?
