I WOKE up Thursday feeling fresh and invigorated, with no post-scandal hangover. I was one of the 17.5 people in America who didn't watch the Monica Lewinsky interview, and I have none of that sour sensation that follows when you realize you have just wasted hours watching some dumb, over-hyped show. I am not going to read her book or listen to her tapes of sex advice to the lovelorn, or whatever her managers concoct for her next.I realize that my decision to boycott this allegedly momentous interview deprives me of an important currency of conversation: Monica chat.

St. Mary's got off to the start it was looking for by beating Roanoke for the second consecutive season. And the Seahawks - ranked 18th in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association preseason poll - will next clash with Dickinson on Saturday at 1 p.m. at St. Paul's School in Brooklandville for the second straight year. But unlike 2013, coach Chris Hasbrouck would prefer if St. Mary's avoided a repeat of the 19-5 drubbing the Red Devils delivered. To do that, Hasbrouck said the team has to refrain from enjoying Tuesday's 12-8 victory over the Maroons too much.

GERMANS ARE accepting unification as a duty, not a deliverance. Nowhere is a note of triumphalism to be heard.The (former) West Germans gloomily assess what all this is going to cost and what it will mean to their comfort and set ways. Germans in the East edgily resign themselves to insecurity, unemployment, professional reconversion, and the condescension -- sometimes hostility -- of fellow Germans in the West. Chancellor Helmut Kohl has acknowledged the split between those who think themselves ''givers'' in the West and those they consider ''takers'' in the East.

They are the three best friends that anyone could have. Sam Koch, Morgan Cox and Justin Tucker are pretty much inseparable. Whether they are taking on Joe Flacco and Michael Oher in a heated game of cornhole, hitting the Las Vegas strip in the offseason, or helping the Ravens win football games with clean snaps and clutch kicks, you rarely spot one member of "the Wolf Pack" without seeing the other two trailing a step behind. "We're all three kind of strung from the same bean and have a lot of fun out there," Koch said.

You don't hear much about mixologists these days, even wit superhits like TV's "Cheers" grinding the neighborhood spa idea into the national mentality.Today's bartenders are likely to be dressy young hunks whprobably know how to make sushi, play hardball, dance the lambada and do quite a few other things.It was different a half-century ago and more. Bartenders were courtly and portly, fatherly types. They always "sirred" the male patrons and never got familiar or chatty unless approached.

Too much alcoholic good cheer can leave an unjolly hangover as a painful reminder the next day.Hangovers -- headaches, nausea and stomach irritations -- result from an overindulgence of alcohol.Hangovers are caused by the undigested byproducts of alcohol, such as acetaldehyde and lactic acid, that build up in the bloodstream as the liver is digesting alcohol.But planning and moderation in drinking can help prevent a hangover.The liver digests alcohol at a slow, fixed rate that cannot be changed.

Maurice Kanbar has a million-dollar idea that he thinks could clear your head and solve the sales problems of an industry: hangover-free vodka.He says people who drink his Skyy Vodka aren't likely to get hangovers because he has removed most of the impurities that he thinks causes them. He used to get bad headaches when he drank, but not since he created Skyy, he says.But now Mr. Kanbar is getting headaches from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. It has launched an investigation of his hangover claims that could force him to scrap his advertising altogether.

Once again, I am presenting my list of New Year's Day hangover cures.I do not know why. I actually have no sympathy for people who drink to excess (unless they invite me along), but as a public service I will share my collection of actual expert cures with you:Dr. Philip Thorek, a surgeon with an interest in nutrition and drinking: "Boy, alcohol really knocks hell out of your liver. And the liver is a marvelous organ. But what do we do to it? We go out and kill off a fifth and turn into bibulous slobs."

YOU ARE a true Baltimorean if you remember a little box that used to run each New Year's Day on the front page of The Sun. "If not needed this morning, it may be clipped and saved for future contingencies," the box advised, and it went on to list the ingredients that "would sober a patient in 5 to 35 minutes." This is the recipe: Into a highball glass pour the juice of half a lemon or one orange. Add one-eighth of a teaspoon of salt, two teaspoons of brown sugar and enough ice water to make 8 ounces.

If Ravens' players and fans aren't familiar with the following facts, they certainly will be by the time the team begins its title defense on Sept. 5 against the Denver Broncos. It has been nine years since an NFL team repeated as a Super Bowl winner and eight years since a reigning champion even won a playoff game the following season. Since 1994, only two teams have brought home the Lombardi trophy in back-to-back years. Whether you believe in the “Super Bowl hangover” or think it's little more than an overused and media-generated storyline, there's no disputing the reality that it's extremely difficult to repeat in the NFL in the salary cap era. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and company will undoubtedly be asked about it many times and the organization has already taken steps to distance itself from the Super Bowl XLVII victory, claiming it's a new year.

You'll have to get through Monday night first, but there are some worthwhile restaurant options waiting on Tuesday morning. Slainte in Fells Point will start serving breakfast at 7 a.m., and the first of six English Premier League matches, West Bromwich Albion vs. Fulham, goes on at 7:30 a.m. It's a good reason to show off the kits you got for Christmas. Miss Shirley's restaurants in Keswick and the Inner Harbor are open from 7:30 a.m to 3:30 p.m. on New Year's Day, serving breakfast, brunch and lunch.

When you hear the slogan "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas," your imagination starts working overtime, and the raunchy Vegas bachelor party in "The Hangover" shrewdly tapped into those fantasies. It resulted in millions of movie-goers turning up at the box office a couple of years ago. That hit made "The Hangover Part II" as inevitable as, well, the aftermath from a night of hedonistic excess. Although there is nothing particularly novel about the new sequel, it successfully takes the comic formula that paid off in Vegas and geographically transfers it to another celebrated "sin city," Bangkok.

Baltimore's Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower is marking its first century this month as a commercially impractical but beloved curiosity named for a top-selling hangover cure. On Thursday night, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and others celebrated the centennial at the 1911 tower, the tallest downtown structure until 1923. Guests rode a 1911 Otis elevator to the historic chamber high above the corner of Lombard and Eutaw streets to observe the clockworks and elevator motors. "Like Baltimore, it's quirky," said artist Greg Otto, who has painted the tower numerous times and reproduced it on postcards.

Right up front, I must confess that I am part of the reason the Maryland Transportation Authority is considering a proposal to jack up tolls to dizzying heights. You see, I'm a parasite on the system. Have been for years. And if you, too, commute into downtown Baltimore from south of the city, you may be a freeloader, too. My daily commute from Howard County takes me up Interstate 95. I pay my way as far as Caton Avenue — in the form of gas taxes, vehicle registration fees, sales taxes and so on. But once I cross the city line, I enjoy a free ride all the way to the end of Interstate 395 at Conway Street.

Ever wonder why some poor sots fall off their bar stools after one drink while others imbibe into the evening? The answer, it turns out, may lie partly in the hangover gene. Addictions expert Ulrike Heberlein and fellow researchers reported this year in the journal Nature that they had discovered it in drunken fruit flies. Now they're working with experts in human genetics to see whether people have it, too. "Firstly we'd have to figure out whether ... people who have differences in their ability to develop tolerance have different versions of this gene," said Heberlein, whose University of California-San Francisco lab has studied loaded fruit flies for years.

Newly signed contracts for home purchases plummeted more than 30 percent in May compared with a year earlier in the Baltimore metro area, a worrisome first glimpse at how the housing market is faring without the support of an $8,000 federal tax credit for first-time buyers. Regional housing numbers released Thursday also pointed to other challenges for sellers: Average year-over-year sale prices fell nearly 3 percent, and the number of unsold homes on the market rose to an 18-month high.
