How does she do it?

I have several different remedies for hangovers...these vary between the severity and cause.

Remedy 1: Emergen-C. This is usually useful if I did eat appropriately the day before and was not sloshing it away on an empty stomach.

Remedy 2: Tylenol-Sinus. This is more of a time-sensitive remedy, i.e. I don't have the time to sit at home and nurse my hangover.

Remedy 3: Plain yogurt/Kefir. This is usually indicated if I feel that my stomach will react strongly to real food, causing the whole afternoon to be based on my location vis-à-vis restroom facilities. Yes I know I'm a girl. Yes it happens. The world goes on.

Remedy 4: Not getting out of bed. Ever. Now, while this isn't really a remedy, it should be noted that often the hangover is strong enough to necessitate total horizontal positioning. If I could levitate to the sink to get water, that'd be awesome, but I can't, so roomie could you get me some? Roomie? Roomie?

Remedy 5: Fried Pork Dumplings from the Chinese Place. Usually accompanied by Cold Sesame Noodles to make the $6 minimum for delivery.

Remedy 6: Finally, for the extreme deadly hangover, an Everything Pizza. This is bound to upset the delicate digestive tract, but sometimes only the salty succulent richness of all four food groups will do. Plus it keeps well in the fridge for the next day's hangover.

Ubiquitous Remedy: Coffee, light and sweet. Always good (even for those "I didn't drink last night, why the hell do I feel hungover" days).

Now almost all of these rememdies are generally combined in some way or another...I haven't run the calculations on the possible permutations and needless to say I won't be pinned down.
