I'm not a big drinker.  In fact... there are many people that I "hang" with that have never witnessed me consume alcohol.  My theory is that I'd rather eat the calories.  Also, I'm never quite sure how alcohol will affect my behavior so just to be safe... I usually avoid it.  But today... I didn't. A good friend had some good Vodka and cranberry juice in her hotel room at sub-sections and since we weren't driving anywhere, I decided to have some... It was really yummy.  We had a good time and blew off some stress from the season and the tournament.  I wasn't that intoxicated.  I remember EVERYTHING I did... (and everything everyone else did.)
