Finer Things
Back in the day I used to smoke a lot of cigars. A couple a week when I was living in a single in the dorms. I approached the hobby like a good geek and avidly read and participated in the USENET (anybody remember USENET?) group alt.smokers.cigars, had an account at an internet cigar shop, keep a 50qt igloo cooler-cum-humidor under my bed, and kept a journal of notes on different smokes. For one reason or another I stopped smoking stogies regularly towards the end of 1999, in fact the last entry into the aforementioned journal was from Thanksgiving of that year.

I've had a few cigars in the intervening 4 years, but tonight I had an excellent cigar that both scratched the itch to smoke that I was having and made me want to go pick up some more cigars for the coming spring months. It was an Macanudo "Hampton Court" that was given to me by Greg when he was visiting last week. I intend of trying to find a good tobacconist in Hollywood this week to pick up a few more cigars. Anybody know of a good one?
