Sea legs, confirmed

Get ready for some interesting news; I've got my wobbly legs! Indeed, the rumors are true. I experienced my first alcohol induced wobbles; at a great party by the way. Kudos for the dashing host who helped me get very tipsy and he didn't even take advantage of me.  I also want to thank everyone else who was supportive and also did not take advantage of me (even though they probably don't read my blogs, I'd like the Internetz to know they are pretty cool cats).  I think it was a great experience for a first-timer like me.  I didn't get overly drunk nor did I experience a hangover for the following morning.  I was obscenely hungry for the next 24 hours, but I'm not sure if that had anything to do with the previous night.  For those of you who care, I partook of these liquors: 151 rum, goldschlager, jagermiester, and vodka; these were in the form of various shots and mixed drinks.
After that whole deal I was set to my herculean task of doing all the work for Finals Week.  I finally got my TA job squared away in time to grade all the final essays for the World Prehistory class. Grade 37 papers by Monday 5pm; I can do that (just barely). Go to optional statistics exam on Tuesday? Sorry, no can do; I've got 10 pages of text to pull out of my ass for my Archaeology Methods course. Wednesday morning I have a Biological Anthropology exam, then I'm off to do some more writing before the Big One is due Thursday morning.  I have a strong suspicion that I won't actually be able to write all 10 pages, but I'm hoping that I can write it eloquently enough to scrape a C out of it.
I am home free by Friday! (I'm assuming I will be sleeping from 4pm Thursday until Friday noon-ish) I am looking forward to staying in bed for nearly 24 hours. I think I deserve it. Maybe I'll go all out and order pizza for dinner on Friday night.
