Well, I guess that's one way to quit smoking...

I like smoking. A lot.

But, unfortunately, I am broke. I will be broke until next Wednesday. Anyone want to Paypal me some dollars so I can buy some noodles?

At any rate, first thing to go: cigarettes.

I'm taking this opportunity to quit smoking. Again.

I guess that, even though I really like it, there are some good things associated with quitting smoking. I won't get bronchitis every winter. My lungs won't look like (or as much like) the smoker lungs from the Body Worlds exhibit.

But, whatever. I'm still pissed about it.

Oh, and as an extension of this post, one of the association directors that I work with in-house apparently thinks I have a bad attitude. Now, while I can be cynical, sarcastic, and shitty, I do not have a "bad attitude," and certainly if I did I would at least hide it while at work. I'm a little smarter than that.

Sorry that I don't hold you hand and suck up to you, or coddle you when you tell me a bad idea. That's just not who I am. If that in your book yields a bad attitude, I guess I have one.

At any rate, if she thinks I have a bad attitude now, I would not suggest that she spend any time with me in the next two weeks as I kick the smokes!

I smoked for 2 days when I was in 8th grade. Then I realized I could buy a joint with the same money and be stoned for a few hours...(it was 1972, doesn't that mean it was okay?)
So many years pass and I start passing time with a cig in my hand while working in the restaurant. Smoked steady for about a month, maybe two. This is two years ago. I bought a couple packs earlier this year, then realized this is a less than stellar choice. So far it's been since Friday, when I had one.
After reading your post, I want another...
Although I've only read your posts, I find it difficult to believe you can be cynical AND sarcastic! ;)
Good luck with the smoking thing.

Oh, yeah, I came across this today also-
since you asked for PayPal

Jen can be neither cynical nor sarcastic. She's sweet as pie.

And I'm a terrible liar. ;)

Har, har, har. You are all terribly funny. There I go, being sarcastic again.

"I am Jen's cancerous lung."
(This is a different post, so I feel comfortable in quoting Fight Club, or at least alluding to it.)

I really want a cigarette. Really, really, really.

Need another reason to quit? I was bored and work and flipping through People magazine, where I spotted a picture of Lindsay Lohan smoking Parliament Lights! Oh no! You can't smoke the same brand as her! :)

I can't believe you posted that picture. I hate you.

Well, it's day two of the smokeless Jen, and I'm doing okay.

But I did desperately ask a friend of mine that I saw if she had a cigarette (she was interviewing for a position at my company). I probably would have smoked it, too, but she quit smoking. Fucking quitters.

Ugh. I'm going to the bathroom so that I can weep silently for awhile.

"I am Jen's non-smoking husband. I know what Jen knows."

Why the embargo on Fight Club references? Did I miss something?

Ian, you missed this.
