Pull in case of emergency

I am smoking a pipe that i made! i couldnt find a big drill bit to make the hole bigger so im stuck with a hole the size of my pinky. it smokes ok. im thinking of making a pipe as a present for my friends on christmas. i guess i have to start working on them. even though only 3 of my friends smoke a pipe i would make some for the rest as a shelf piece haha. its hard wanting to buy another pipe with no money.
this is the 2nd pipe i make. i dont know the wood. but it was hard to make the shape.
i had a topic to talk about today but i seemed to forgot it. damn! and i wanted to talk about something besides my rant about my views and problems.

Ive never smoked a cigar by myself. usually im with my friend that smokes cigars( i got him into pipe smoking). but i guess today is the day im going to. i am smoking a nestor miranda 1989 cigar. ive had it before and it was not that bad. ive been parring beers and cigars, and i have found that stone arrogant bastard ale goes good with a liga privada. if you cant afford it like me then i recomend going to a cigar shop and getting a house blend for way cheaper and almost taste the same. ive had the urge to smoke a cigar when i have been at home but never got around to do it. BUT when i thought about having a pipe the only problem was choosing what pipe and what tobacco.  but now that i have "manned up" and actually smoked a cigar while typing this. i think about what che guevara said "A smoke in times of rest is a great companion to the solitary soldier".
to me it means that even though your alone a cigar is always there to keep you company(im just dumbing it down) ive remember i started into smoking cigars then later i got into pipe smoking. but during that time (when i had a job) i would buy cigars, i found a place in brea that was a cigar lounge. everyone that i met that smoked a cigar said " its an expensive habit" haha which we would start laughing. but from time to time i still have cigar. now that i think about it(off note) i should of made myself a cup of coffee to go with this cigar and rant about smoke. haha. im already half way through the cigar and it is real good. my cousin taught me a trick when you get to the end of a cigar when it starts tasting bad. he taught me how not to make it taste bad. haha i dont know how else to put it. but its your lucky day if you dont know this already. its the patty secret formula! 
when your cigar gets sour. just blow into the cigar for a while. it causes the oils that have moved back to get pushed forward and get burned. it will cause the cigar to get rid of its bad taste. im pretty sure a lot of cigar smokers know this trick. but there you go, you now know the secret!

   I went to my first meeting of the gbmc( gentelmans bear and moustache coalition) it was awesome! i had fun at the bar with them. there were people with awesome looking moustaches and one guy with a long beard. when i first got there i didnt know what to do. so i headed straight for the bar. a guy next to me complimented on my moustache and went over to the group of people of the coalition. i got a guiness. and headed towards the group. when i stood next to them for about 2 seconds alone. then turned around and greeted me and showed me everyone in the group. at first i was nervous but everyone was cool. we laughed we cried(haha im kidding about the last part) we swapted stories and had a blast. after that i didnt want to go home so i headed over to the coffee shop that was till open at 1 a.m. i sat there reading articles on blogger till 3 a.m. then headed home and slept.
All my friends are going some where this weekend. so im going to be home all by myself. but then again i am always alone haha. but i decided that im not going to Tennessee but instead im making a road trip to San Francisco. i know nobody wants to go or even able to go. so i guess im going by myself. which is ok. im only going for 2-3 days to take some pictures and look around. i found a nice hotel next to chinatown and its a pretty kool neighborhood. the only thing that concerns me is getting mugged or anything like that. since looking at myself i look like a kid haha. but i do guess its ok to go. i dont know anyone that would want to go. im basicly paying for everything. what to do i mean me paying, its my parents paying since im not going to Tennessee. so i have to figure out how much everything is going to cost. i was supposed to go a while back but all the people that were going to go bailed on me, so i had to postpone my trip but now im going for sure
    i guess i did end up ranting about myself. but in a positive way! next time im going write down what i am going to talk about. i didnt come prepared with notes as some teachers like to say.
