Haven't smoked in a couple of weeks. Been puny. Lit one up tonight and it tasted like crap. Guess I need a little more time.

From the time I started smoking a pipe, I've kept an excel spreadsheet with detailed info about every pipe I own and every tobacco I've ever smoked. I update it during or after each bowl. I can look at it and see how many bowls I've smoked in any given pipe, when the last day was that it was smoked, how many days since the last bowl, etc. How many times I've smoked a given tobacco. Appx how much of a particular blend I've smoked total... all kinds of geeky stats. I'm weird like that.
I am not like you.

At all.

Not one bit.

I did this for a month to see my smoking habits. It was interesting.
I'm not criticizing. I want to be that guy, truly, but it just doesn't happen. I can't tell you how many times I've started diaries, databases, and spreadsheets, but I was born without the keep up with it gene.

I do not understand someone who will list a property for sale, agree to enter negotiations with a potential buyer, and then refuses to respond to either the potential buyer or the buyers realtor. It is still on the market and still listed by owner.

Oh well. On to plan B. B is for build.

I tried to order a part from a wholesale place and they asked for my dealer number. "8675309", I replied. They just chuckled, and said that dealer number doesn't exist.

My iPhone 7 was possessed. It would open apps and make calls and text without me touching it. I traded it for an iPhone X s Max.

ProTip: If you're using an off-brand charging cable, it sometimes can have interesting effects (including opening apps, making calls, etc.). I currently have one that disables the fingerprint sensor on my phone and would cause apps to open on my daughter's phone. I used to have one that would make calls while I was sleeping.

It usually did it when unplugged and just sitting on a table.

Today is the last day of my Fair gig.
Mrs Hov and I may go to the Fair this Saturday, just for fun.
