My Hair Hurts

I can't quote this exactly but it's in Plum Sykes' book 'Bergdorf Blondes', and goes to prove that we gain something from the trashiest books we read. She wakes up one morning with a hangover and proclaims 'My hair hurts, my nails hurt.' I often think of this the morning after a 'should have drunk more water/eaten/ just said no to that last drink or two' good night out.
This is how I feel this morning....
I think I'll just go back and lie down before cleaning the flat and baking Dad's birthday cake...


Post script: Here is the actual quote.

'Oooo-www!!! My head was hurting. My nails were agony. Even my hair was hurting.'


  1. 'My hair hurts' is what Charlotte says in Sex and the City after they get the ferry to statten island and she gets really drunk. I'm sure it's in Bergdorff Blondes too, but I always think of Charlotte when I'm that hung over!

  2. I too wasn't feeling entirely great this morning, not quite at hair hurting level but a slight ache perhaps. This is a lovely way of describing a really bad hangover. I shall try and work it into future hangovers! At least to have something to smile about. Hope you feel better soon and the cake worked well :)

  3. Ah thank you both. I had a look through Berrdorf Blondes and think that I may have merged SATC Charlotte and a Bergdorf Blonde to make that quote up oops. It's a great scene.


Ooh how lovely more stripes on the page...
Thank you for taking the time.
