A computer hangover
is the feeling you get when you've been on the computer
or watching a movie or playing video games
all day. Depending on the person, it can also occur after a few hours or even thirty minutes. Computer
hangovers almost never occur when accompanied by another person, either because of the desire to impress them or because you were engaged in another activity (e.g. talking
, thinking, or...) instead of just spacing. The effects of a computer hangover
can be achieved as well by spacing for a day, lying on the couch for five hours, but lets see you try that.
-- slight naseau (depending on the person)
-- dry taste in mouth
dislike of sunlight
-- sudden attraction to couch
-- loss of will to do anything other than just lie there
-- hunger or thirst (seeing as to you haven't probably left the couch for a few hours)
-- loss of memory for most of that day
-- empty sleepiness
-- a cool shower
-- a glass of cold water
-- more computer
(WARNING: temporary! Your computer hangover
will get worse afterwards.)
-- time, time time!
-- calling a friend to chat
-- reengaging your mind with something required like homework
(WARNING: no media should be involved, or your computer hangover
will not be helped at all!)
-- Going outside
for a quick run/walk
-- Washing your face
with a cold cloth
-- Changing your clothes
, brushing your hair, doing new makeup, "freshening up"
