Miserable & Hot

But not smoking. I'm going to go back on Step 1 of the patch since I inadervently fell off the patch wagon. The falling off the patch has caused me to seriously consider buying a pack. So back to square one!

Shameful Confession

I did Step 1 of the patch for 4 weeks & quite enjoyed it. It really did help a lot, and I highly recommend it.

I kept forgetting to put on the patch for Step 2, so I just said "fuckit". It has been OK - I do have cravings but I'm really damn lazy - too lazy to go for a pack of smokes.

But really, stay on the program. Don't be a lazy-ass scatterbrain like me.

Gratuitous hottie:

Da Face is Back to Normal

Enough to be the Face of April Cornell?

I Look Like a Chipmunk

It's been less than 48 hours, so I'm not too concerned yet. But I hope I can get my photos done before May 30. I get the feeling that the Face of April Cornell will not look like a puffer fish.

First Mouth Operation Tomorrow

Please pray the sedation knocks me the fuck out.

First, Valium tonight before bed, then Halcion and some kind of antihistamine at the dentist's office.
Even if I hadn't quit smoking, I wouldn't be allowed to smoke for 5 days after. It's lucky I got a head start!

Standard Quit Smoking Joke

Where do I collect my $138?!?

or, Who stole my $138?!?!

You know, the money you saved? Ha. Funny. Anyways, I don't notice any extra weight in my wallet, but I should. If I bought cigs in DC, I woudl pay $7. Five and change in Virginia.

So, yeah, where's my money?!?!

Still Here

Nothing new. I keep forgetting to put my patch on.

Is It Broken for You Too?

I can't see my Quit Meter up there. Don't know why, and after a day of looking at CSS, HTML and learning about Template Variables, I can't be arsed to figure it out.

It's been 3 weeks, BTW.

Patch Dream Weirdness Continues Unabated

Or, Wherein I Snub Lindsay Lohan and Try to Seduce This Guy

I am loving these dreams, but last night's out-weirded them all.

I was a contestant on the Celebrity Apprentice (which did air last night, and which I did watch last night). The task was to host some big fancy celebrity charity event/concert. As the crowd filed in, I found myself sitting one seat away from Lindsay Lohan. She tried to say "hi" to me, but I ignored her until her need for attention from me was at a peak and I was forced to wave and say "hi" back.

A few minutes later the theater was empty because the celebs had just showed up for a quick photo op and left. Empty except for myself and Tom Green. Who I tried valiantly to seduce. I believe I told him "I need to get laid!". No dice.

But I still love him. And he is looking hot these days.

MMmmmm....Floor Cig

I was walking the dog past the construction zone in my neighborhood yesterday when I happened upon a completely whole smoke, obviously dropped (and slightly crushed) by one of the construction workers.

I did NOT pull a Homer Simpson.

Al Anon Makes Me Want to Smoke!

Well, not Al Anon, but certainly the lady that just started coming to the group who reeks of cigs. See, thing is, cigarette smoke never smelled bad to me, even before I started smoking at age 21. So I can smell this woman and know she's gonna light up and inhale deeply after the meeting. Gah! I spent the whole meeting last night being a mouthbreather.

That's Enough to Keep Me Off the Smokes

My dental bill is going to be outrageous. Like, over $5,000 outrageous.

Don't fucking smoke!

Coffee is Bad. I Love Coffee.

Appetite for Destruction

I suddenly remembered these horrible cigarillo things that the ex bought a long time ago that were living in that small cabinet above the stove. They were so bad we only smoked about a pack or two out of the 2 cartons he bought.

Here's what I did with them (wet, broken, cheap cigarillos anyone?)

To Be Honest...

I really can't believe I've even made it this far. I really can't.

I Haz Dreemz

Don't you love looking up my nose? I'll get the hang of it at some point.

Another Video Tonight

I had planned on talking to you as I was walking to Metro this a.m., but it's raining cats & dogs. Don't want to ruin my brand new camera!
