Hey guys! things are good in my neck of the world Thanks for asking Lawrence :D
My favourite method is a book I have read a thousand times already; LOTR I read a couple of pages and then the eyes give up a ghost and then off to sleepy land I go.
Hi everyone. It's about 11:40 here in AZ. I thought I'd have a smoke before bed. Smoking MccLelland Captain Cool tonight. I tried a different packing method, since I was having a little trouble keeping bowl lit. I did the first two steps of the three step method, then on the last step I packed quite a large wad into the bowl, lit it and had a 30 minute smoke while only relighting once. Progress.
That's great Sean, I'm glad to hear it.
In a similar vein to Seanz' recommendation... I like to play a Sherlock Holmes Mystery audio book from Librivox.org on my cell phone's MP3 player turned down and put it under my pillow. Some of my favorites are The Musgrave Ritual, Silver Blaze, and The Priory School. If I choose something like The Hound of the Baskervilles, I'll have to listen every night for a week because I'll only make it a chapter or two at the most before I'm out like a light.
Well, now I feel like part of an exclusive club. I'm working a late night content deployment to spare my east coast team mates. Of course, an important server isn't working and I'm killing time while waiting for it to come back. I do wish I was able to smoke a pipe while all of this is going on. At least I get to sleep in tomorrow - after this, I'm on holidays until the 24th!
Going to a country wedding then a camping trip; there will be plenty of pipes smoked to be sure!
