    It helps to have an island that looks like that.
  2. What are you smoking right now?

    Durbar again, in the same pipe. The wife is away for the evening (funny how I last smoked a pipe, this same combination, exactly a week before I met her), and I felt like a bit of smoke. The first in a while. This is fantastic tobacco. I’m glad I have a couple tins, as it hasn’t been made in ages.
  3. What are you smoking right now?

    Oh, man: I am after anything that is funky and flavorful! The Galtaud sounds great. It's not actually stupidly expensive, or anything, I just have this thing about liquors that used to be cheap. It's why I don't buy Highland Park 12, anymore, because I used to be able to get it for $25 a bottle.
  4. What are you smoking right now?

    Oh man, Maison Surrenne! Too bad the price went up. I haven't had a cigar since late summer of 2017. I need to fix that.

    Yeah, that's the one, though I'd wear it on a bracelet. Less than 12mm thick. I don't mind the "gilt."
  6. Watches

    You know, I don't really like either. I do really like the new 39mm Black Bay by Tudor. I had been thinking about picking up the Rado 37mm vintage-styled Captain Cook. The Tudor is less than twice as much, and seems to be more than twice the watch, and looks at least as good.
  7. Post what you're watching

    It's a pretty enjoyable show. The story changes don't irritate me too much, given that it's been a LONG time since I read the books (when they were new).
  8. Post what you're watching

    Altered Carbon. It's better than I would have thought it would be, but I think they made some mistakes with the backstory changes.
  9. Happy Birthday EdWood!

    happy birthday!
  10. Happy birthday, Steve (swt61)!!!

    Happy birthday!
  11. And now what did you do TODAY?

    I've thought a lot, today. My wife is genderqueer (she is very open so I don't feel uncomfortable mentioning that) and much more plugged in to things than I am, me at the grand ol' age of 37. She told me the other day that she considers me to be part of the queer community. Some of my friends here, I don't really remember which beyond Shell and Steve, have known for years that I have been, and am, sexually attracted to men. Not every man. Some men. I think I've mentioned it on occasion. I've never acted on it, for a lot of reasons. I'm generally more attracted to women, and I just think that I wasn't part of the right generation to act on a bisexual tendency in a casual way. I don't know if my time has passed, or what. I know that Colie would support me exploring that aspect of my personality, but honestly I don't really feel that strong of an urge. I'm very happily married, and, even when accepted, I would consider that to be cheating, and I'm not real big on infidelity. It's still there, though. I think it has informed other parts of my life, parts that I have acted on in non-sexual ways. I'm not sure I feel comfortable claiming that I'm part of the queer community. I "pass." That's not even the right word. How can you "pass" when nobody even thinks that you aren't whatever you are "passing" for? I'm certainly a fellow traveler, but that's not the same thing. I really don't care what I'm called or considered. I don't really consider this a coming out. It would be a shitty one, if it were. I also know that this is in a public forum, so don't worry that I've put this in the wrong place. I just kinda feel like I should do something, just for myself. Talking openly feels like doing something for myself.
  12. Deals

    If anybody wants some Merino v-neck sweaters, these are a stupid deal. Baldo is well-known for their cashmere line (they describe themselves as offering excellent value at $400 MSRP on cashmere: I'm not sure they are wrong). I verified with Luigi Baldo that they are real (they wanted copious pictures). They feel as nice as my Zegna sweater (which is too small, but might work some day). Fit is a bit slimmer than Banana Republic merino, at least in XXL, which is perfect for me, as the BR merino is too loose on the v-necks (pretty good on the cardigans). The feel of the fabric is amazing.
  13. And now what did you do TODAY?

    That's looks familiar. I got the ankle and the midpoint of the tibia, too. I hope you heal well and fast!
  14. Watches

    I know, I was just joking. This is a day-to-day watch, so I want it to look dressy. I'd say that my Bulova Lunar Pilot watches are my real beaters. Anyway, my issue isn't that the watches will get scratched (I'm mister "Just wear the watch, things get scratched"), it's that a 50 year old Rolex or Omega costs a fucking fortune to service, and they aren't very shock resistant.
  15. Watches

    They sure were in the late 1960s.
