Not an easy thing to find on Friday or Saturday as the most anticipated, frenetic and full-on event of the year finally arrives. But come Sunday all that partying takes its toll and you don't have to look far to see people exhibiting the following symptoms, which could easily be mistaken for the 's' word: immobility, slowness of movement, slurred speech and a reluctance to head off home.
