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.
