    I'm not exactly in an "office" building.... at work... but if I were I would probably be allowed to smoke there too... it is nice. I'm not going to lie.

    Surf the web, listen to music and play with my beard. For some reason I mess with my beard most when there is a pipe involved.

    The vast majority of the time I smoke my pipe I am working. I have a 'home office' which is separated from the house. So I can enjoy my pipe while researching, writing, reading, etc. It is a pretty great setup.

    I am extraordinarily jealous! I have a smoking room, but it is basically a Florida room and does not afford me the presence of my library or all my electronic accouterments. Occasionally I take my laptop with me to smoke, but it is really not a productive space.

    One thing I wish I could do with a pipe in my mouth is play guitar. I must clench right (otherwise the pipe hits the fingerboard), but I feel more comfortable for a "long clench" on the left. For another, I play "nice" guitars, ie, at the low end of pricey. I don't want hot ashes dropping on them and I have a tendency at some point to lose my presence of mind and breath through the stem, with ashes everywhere. I sometimes play a few notes with the pipe in my mouth, figuring out something rather than playing a piece, but in general I just have to set it down and relight it when I want a few puffs.

    I also like to sit at a public bar with a pipe in my mouth, drink beer and bullshit. sigh. Try that in NY and you'd be in jail before you knew it.

    When smoking a pipe, I usually read while listening to music and drinking coffee. Life's simple pleasure.

    Driving, for the most part.

    Also high on the list are watching my dogs (a border collie and a lab) play in the backyard, read, or....

    wander aimlessly in the yard, listening to the grass grow.

    I usually read on my kindle by the fire pit. In on-post housing we aren't allowed to smoke inside (not saying I haven't of course) so it's nice to have the fire pit to stay warm...ish on cold winter evenings.

    I'm from Newport News, Chris. (Actually, a few miles down the road in Hilton Village.) This is clearly a "big lie"! There ARE no cold winter evenings in Newport News! Chilly, at best. (Everything is relative. I'm still trying to acclimate to Rome, NY temps after 40 years. )

    I don't know, Jim...when we got home from Florida last night it was 29 degrees! I'd call that a little more than chilly! lol

    When not smoking it's done from inside the house, curtains twitching. When smoking it's from the porch and I'm able to give a more personal touch and make intense and uncomfortable eye contact.

    my lifelong dream is really to own a house with an elevated (maybe 5-6 steps up) porch on which I can put a rocking chair, a massive dog that barks at everyone, and a little radio (for jazz). Then said house needs to be across the street from an elementary school and I need to sit and rock all-day everyday and be that guy that everyone hates because he yells at everyone.

    I aim high I know.

    unfortunately I live on the third floor of a 13 story building, and will probably moving to the 30th floor in a year... alas.... a dream is still a dream
