  Another spam bites the dust
Well, once again it's been a while since I've posted. I guess I'll never fulfill my dream of posting to this blog regularly. But when people try to spam my blog, I get notifications by email, and I squash 'em before they appear. But in order to do that, I have to log in to my blogger account. So I figured, while I'm squashing this latest piece of spam, I might as well post an update.

I haven't gone back to smoking cigarettes. Nor have I begun smoking pipes more often than is healthy (at least as far as I'm concerned). So that's one good thing. Unfortunately, however, the stem of my Aragorn pipe has begun to split. But before you take that as a warning not to purchase this pipe, you should know that I committed a big No-No when it comes to pipe-smoking: I smoked this sucker twice, sometimes three times in a row, without waiting for it to cool & dry... not just one or two times but several times a week! It's that good... the taste, I mean. I just couldn't help myself.

So now I've decided to retire the Aragorn pipe, hang it on my wall somewhere, and buy the Gandalf pipe, only this time I will take better care of it. If I do this and the stem splits anyway, rest assured I will let you know. But I doubt it will, or at least, not as quickly as the Aragorn pipe did. Let that be a lesson to you... if you're going to smoke these pipes regularly (or any pipe for that matter), best let them rest 72 hours (or at the very least, 24) after each smoke, as experienced pipe-smokers have recommended.

Of course, if you smoke daily like I do then you will need a shitload of pipes, but part of the fun is collecting different ones anyway.

Until next spam...

The rider was robed all in black, and black was his lofty helm; yet this was no Ringwraith but a living man. The Lieutenant of the Tower of Barad-dur he was, and his name is remembered in no tale; for he himself had forgotten it, and he said: 'I am the Mouth of Sauron.' J.R.R. Tolkien
