Alcohol ≠ Depressant?

So it seems that whenever I drink a little, I get really hyper, instead of tired like most people. This tends to make me do late night surfing or coding sessions on my computer.

All I can figure is that my body kicks up the metabolism a notch to get the alcohol out, and as a side effect, I stay up late and get a similar sort of twitchiness that I have when I have too much caffeine.

Go figure.

  1. That, or your natural state involves staying up late and screwing around with your computer, so that’s what you do when your inhibitions are reduced. I find that I’m more likely to read novels in public when I’m drunk.

  2. When my inhibitions are reduced, I talk incessantly about Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, computers, or linguistics. Which are the topics I would talk about all the time if it were more socially acceptable ;o).
