Default Has this happened to anyone??

So I was brewing last night....and of course I was drinking my newly kegged double IPA for the first time. Everything was going great.....the mash went well, etc. About 30 minutes into the boil I realized....wow, I'm drunk. I must not have realized how fast I was drinking, and since it was from a keg I wasn't keeping track of how much I had consumed. Instead of cutting myself off (which would have been the smart thing to do), I decided to just keep enjoying my new beer. To make a long story short....I wake up this morning with a sticky kitchen floor, a dirty kitchen, two batches of beer in the primary fermenters (only one with the airlock in place....opps), and only one recorded OG (1.080), and a really pissed off wife. What the hell happened? When I went downstairs to check on things this morning, I opened up one of the fermenters and found (much to my surprise) the other half of the airlock (which I then put in place). I hope everything turns out o.k.....my wife mentioned to me that before I passed out, I mumbled something about ruining the beer. Wow, that was a rough night of brewing.

If you don't understand RDWHAHB, then you need to read C.P.'s TCJOHB.

Probably will turn out to be the best beers you've ever brewed. And no way you'll be able to repeat it.

LOL that's pretty funny. At least the beer was in the fermenter and you didn't fall in the boil kettle.

So far....one fermenter is bubbling away.....but the other is not. I hope that I pitched my yeast for that batch. Hmmmm....only time will tell. Maybe next time I won't drink so much. I'll probably call the porter (the one that I'm worried about) "Blackout Porter". It's only appropriate.
