Kind of strange today because I have not been drinking alcohol during my work week, but I had about 8 beers last night.  Woke up with a bad hangover, and then about 3 hours later it felt like I had a fever.  Super cold -7 F last night so maybe I didn't suit up properly for exposure.

Anyway, the fever symptoms continued and I took 1 k mg vitamin C, 250 mcg vitamin D, and 2 asprin.  Now I'm drinking more beer and feel a whole lot better.

I don't know if I've ever had a sickness that lasted for such a short time.

I don't recall having fever symptoms with a hangover, so it's unusual for me.  YMMV.

Update. It seems to have failed, but it failed in an interesting way. It looks like it loses moisture from the edges in, which means that you can't just pour it over the mini muffin tray as it will pull the mixture up instead of expanding out.
