Oy...

Nothing left to bitch about. Smoking ban has worked in my favor with respect to dining in restaurants. This is excellent. I would like to write a letter to the Mass Legislature and Governor Romney to say thank you for enacting a statewide ban on smoking :)

Caught up on loads of sleep last night. Went to bed at midnight and woke up at...0815! I was in a rush to get to work on time.

It will be raining, sleeting and snowing tomorrow.

Smoking is a disgusting habit. The chances of Texas following suit and banning it has about as much chance as frost in Hades but thankfully local ordinances are making it more and more difficult for the chimneys among us.

No worries mate,

Localities will follow suit and hopefully in our lifetimes we will see the end of public smoking. I wonder if places like Austin or San Antonio will ban it soon. Those places are really cool. Well Texas in general is a cool place, it just gets hot! Ashley's grandma lives in Waco part of her dads side of the family lives there.
