This morning I have woken to more chaos, but right now I don’t care. I have consumed a bacon sandwich and a large mug of black coffee. I have dripped seven fat drops of home made ejuice into my dripper (Igo-W) and enjoyed my morning vape – without guilt. As I was sitting there, with my calm neutral palette colours, and matte white wood I realised another distinct advantage to being a vaper. The one thing left stained fagsmoke beige is the wire of the centre light. These lovely calming colours will stay unstained. I will get round to sending a minion to clean it at some point.
Then the postman arrived, and the dog escaped, and 4 baby koi (not mine) are nowhere to be found from the new outdoor koi pond (also not mine) tank thing. New covering and screening is being designed and installed against herons, kingfishers, foxes and neighbourhood bully cats. All of the living room and bathroom furniture has been disrupted again. The painters have stuffed the front bedroom with all of the upstairs furniture bar my bed and wardrobe, and I have no idea how we can possibly get the carpet down in there if the fitters ever appear. The parrot is stressed, the front door is permanently open, the room thermostat has to be turned up to “tropical” to get the heating to come on at all and I’m cold. The dog is sulking. I also have not been able to get to the loo yet today and it’s now nearly half two.
I fired up the computer. The FDA deeming regs are just this side of horrific; under those regs the statement “Ecigs are a safer alternative to smoking tobacco” would become illegal in the US, although the statement itself is in my opinion true. This means that advertising them to the target audience of adult smokers becomes even more difficult; more accusations of targeting youth will appear, and the negative spiral continues. The creeping war against ecigs is so relentless that I looked at the list of articles that popped up in my first search of the day and I didn’t know where to start. My continuing self imposed mission to calmly state facts, where no facts exist is Sisyphean, and suddenly feels really lonely.
I opened my post. Someone had said thank you and given me a gift. A “thank you” for the campaigning for EFVI – and right now it feels like one of the nicest thank you gifts I ever got. So Liberty Flights, Matt, Abe and Lynsey, Thank you. You made my day.
