Default Urgent ideas needed...

...on how to cure a hangover in this place.

I've got some clients to see later and don't want to turn up stinking of rum sweats. I also need to sit opposite my boss and look like i'm functioning at 100%.

In the UK it was simple, Maccy D's breakfast and lots of coffee...here, the heat is going to ruin me when I'm outside so any suggestions would be grand.

Also, good option for general hangover cures - I've never believed much in them but feel free to give me ideas, will try anything today.

- A very hungover Scamp.

Great shout. Going to do that now.

Annoying because I know better, but f**k it. I'm only young.

Greasy food - MacDonalds, KFC or Burger King - and copious amounts of full strength coke.

If possible, go and have a power nap in your car/toilets etc. This is the only way I can survive.

Get yourself a sofa bed or mattress for your office. I take power naps at work whenever the need arises.

I second that - the full 2 litres... maybe even mixed with fizzy water. Dehydration is the killer.

Already ploughing through a two litre bottle of masafi.

Feel like I'm in genuine need of an IV drip or something.

It's not even 10am.

I could do with one of them for my lunchtime snoozes. The current lying-across-two-chairs approach just isn't good enough....always end up witha stiff neck
