I've pretty much given up on the notion that I'll find any type of love or compainionship in this cold, barren world, so I need to find something to fill that black void. I'm not at a good point in my life to get a pet right now, so getting a dog's not an option (currently). The usual standby of "buying a ton of new CDs and DVDs" won't work since I'm trying to limit my spending, in anticipation for the move. Maybe a hobby. But what?
It hit me at the grocery store when I was stuck in line right next to the tobacco counter: smoking! Cigarettes aren't my thing (although I am vehemently anti-smoking ban). I dig the occasional cigar, but would like to try something new. One of my favorite professors in college smoked a pipe and his office always smelled great. I was very happy in college. A pipe! It makes total sense.
Now I just need to figure out how to take the plunge. And to control my snickering when I read the phrase "packing my pipe." In addition to the myriad of health benefits, I think it would be a nice accessory for my new brown corduroy blazer, which makes me look like an associate English or history professor.
Or maybe I'll just buy a ton of new CDs and DVDs.
hey, a quote i recognize! although, to be fair, i think you used this one already.
my father smoked a (tobacco) pipe for awhile. not because he was academic, mind you. i think he wanted to be Sherlock Holmes. the leather Fonzie jacket didn't help much, though.
Fonzie was way cool.
I'm glad someone got the quote - probably one of my faves from Anchorman (but I don't think I've used it before).
I used that quote once over on the 'web...
So is this an ABD jacket?
Ok, boy, enough with the self-pity crap. I'm going to try to hypnotize you over the internet. Stare directly at my picture and repeat after me...
I will moooooove to Saaaaaaaaipaaaaaaan...
I will marry some Fillipinaaaaaaaa hottieeeeeeee.....
I will be haaaaaaaapyyyyyy.....
I'm telling you. They're everywhere here.
Oh, yeah, and the pipe thing is a great idea. We had a club back at Norwich called pipes and stripes (you had to be a smoker with rank to be in it).
Babe, you and I are just going through a phase. D Money and I had a great talk yesterday about the whole Dry Spell concept. You really should move to Censor Nasty. I had a cig yesterday after a pretty trying day myself. Nothing like supporting KY's #1 legal cash crop. Oh, and did you spell it "compainionship" intentionally? How appropriate.
spydrz - "ABD jacket"?
george - But I'm at my best when I throw pity parties. In fact, tonight will most likely consist of copious amounts of scotch and Gerald Collier's I Had To Laugh Like Hell (twangy depressing music at its best).
Saipan - it ain't gonna happen.
KtG - The word "spell" has connotations of a relatively short period of time. If you only knew how long my "spell" was, you'd laugh. Or pity me.
"Compainionship" - That was completely a subconscious slip. But I'm not going to correct it.
I wanna be on you.
Forgot to add: LET'S MAKE A BABY!
