Staying awake

As I mentioned earlier, I'm sleepy. I'm REALLY sleepy. I'm sleepy enough that I am considering having some coffee, and I RARELY drink coffee and certainly not caffeinated. Except I've had a tummy ache since this morning, so coffee would be bad. So I am considering soda or a red bull, but again with the tummy pain. Luckily it's not "Tummy Action" as one of my co-workers calls gas and indigestion, it's just a general tummy ache.

Other then banging my head on the desk, or taking a walk (didn't work), does anyone have any tips to staying awake which will be gentle on my tummy?
Something which will preferable get me through a 4pm presentation/meeting and the drive home, and does not involve actually taking a nap.

Thanks!

Well, that commute home isn't going to help matters since it's like 95 degrees in our neck of the woods.

In an unrelated note...

I've never read a Harry Potter book, but I'm now thinking of going out and buying the final book -- just so I can see how the series ends.

Oh, I'm too late, and I didn't have any suggestions anyway. ;)

Get some sleep, woman!

I know this is late, but sugar usually works for me. How much or what kind depends on what your stomach is like. I used to go for candy bars, now I have fruit instead.

Sugar might work, but would probably drop you like a hot potato half way through that meeting. You've SEEN me in meetings, so you know I have no helpful suggestions for you. ;)
