Stampede Burn Out

... And it's only Tuesday!
Stampede Kicked off July 7th with the parade.
...Then we started drinking. Lots and Lots of drinking!

And yesterday was the Bullshooters Breakfast at the Westin. Damn, lots of great food, but when we walked into the place the guy at the door yells "Free Shooters for the Ladies!" Is he serious? It's a breakfast! What a great way to start the day! LOL So, me and Ping (the new geologist, a small Asian woman) had a shooter. (I son't think Ping knew what it was!) And we all picked up our first mug of OJ (of course, spiked with Vodka!)
Gotta Love Stampede!

By 11:00am, I was feeling no pain! Drunk before noon? Pretty wild! I've NEVER been drunk before noon before. There's a first for everything!

Then at noon, they loaded all us drunks onto school busses and drove us to Booker's. (Which is on a normal day a seedy bar beside an even seedier hotel) but at Stampede time it becomes a beer tent for the corporates to enjoy beers on company time! (Again, gotta love Stampede!)
I grabbed a chicken burger as soon as we got there! I was drunk and needed food and water to help me recover! I think I had another 2 coolers after that... but then I HAD to stop! I was swimming in free drinks, and it's not like me to turn down free booze! ...But MAN, I am not as young as I used to be!

I left with Mike (a collegue) at 6:00pm. My feet were hurting so bad! All I wanted to do was LAY DOWN! I got home at 6:30... took off my boots, jumped in the shower and fell asleep at 7pm! I was done! I did wake up to the phone around 9:30, but I barely remember what we talked about, I just wanted to sleep! I was also extremely itchy all over my neck and chest last night (allergies?)... I think I will change my sheets tonight to see if that is the problem! You never know!

PS... no more drinking before noon!!!

Tonight it's off to the Rodeo to watch the Chuck Wagon Races! Yee Haw!

Sounds like fun, but I would never survive... The all day drinking even if you don't get slobbering drunk will KILL you. Been there, done that.
