    Well, I saw one issue; then the other issue; then... Yeah, it just sorta' rolled me over and flat ;-)

    THen, of course, beer in hand - I decided to try 'fixing' the door-fit on my PWM/sxk-boxer squonk...

    This resulted in breaking one of the contacts. *sigh* Found a suitable hack for that, and - wow.. hot.. Pot isn't responding...

    OK, got it all apart again - goddamnit: broke the 'm' (middle) lead off the board to pot.. Soon as I finish this beer and the AC draws off some excess moisture in the air (OK, I'm hot and tired), I'll go patch THAT lead as well.

    Umm yeah. I've been trying on and buying some "shapewear"... and I've reached the conclusion that I just NEED TO LOSE SOME DAMN WEIGHT! So, salad for dinner tonight. :D

    Today I dry-burned, fixed any hot spots, tightened grub screws, and rewicked all my rebuildables. I did this weather the needed it or not. Only one I did not do was my very loved [email protected] coiled and wicked it himself about two weeks ago and I fear goofing with perfection as it vapes flawlessly.

    A while back someone had Corn Bread Puddin' on sale but all they had was 6mg and 0mg.
    I bought a bunch and bought equal amounts of each. I mixed them so I ended up with 3mg in all bottles. :)

    I had to replace the coil in my Achilles today. It was tasting awful, so I pulled the wick and dry-burned it... and it really didn't help, so I figured that coil was just toast. Now I'm in the phase of gradually increasing the wattage from 9.2, to break in the fresh coil and wick, but it already tastes tons better -- and thx to @UncleRJ for the tip about dripping some juice on the coil first, before wicking, to speed the break-in time -- that works really well, almost completely erasing that "cotton" taste.

    I gotta start making salads, sigh. I went on a nut butter craze since I went off meat, but it’s pretty fattening. I was just sticking the spoon in and going at it, though. So peanut butter juice or something like that might help, but I still need to up my protein.

    That’s a great idea! It’s amazing how quickly I got used to lower mg nic, and when I went back to 6 or higher, it felt like a lot!

    Sheesh, I have to get empty bottles, and flavors, and nic base... I never knew juice would cost more than hardware. :grumble:

    Most of this afternoon and evening, I spent trying to find a replacement drip tip for my Falcon tank.

    Would anyone know where to get one? The ones I found were bad colors or not the right shape. I don’t want to buy a new tank so that I can cannibalize the drip tip!

    I switched the tip from the Falcon tank onto my Nunchaku, and it’s perfect! But now the Falcon looks horrible. But I use the Nunchakus everyday, so I’m not switching. Sigh.

    I LERVE peanut butter, but I have to be really careful with it, it's so fatty; too much and I get the "gallbladder attack" pain from the damn gallstones. So mostly I just don't buy it, easier to not be tempted that way. I love salad, always have, but normally I go nuts with what my husband calls a "bucket o'salad".. the one tonight was a little bigger than a regular "dinner salad", but not huge, and I only put 2 chicken tenders in it (cut into 4 pieces each), plus my usual "shredded parmesan" and a little Lite Ranch dressing. And I strictly avoided the damn apple fritters that monster brought home, damn him. :D And I'll be downsizing breakfast too, from 3 pieces of bacon to 2, and a smaller bowl of cereal; at least blueberries are a "superfood" so I can justify eating those, yummy as they are. :D

    This post-menopause metabolism is the PITS. I used to lose 5-10 lbs just by skipping a meal! Had to eat like a longshoreman just to be shaped somewhat like a girl! Now it's all belly and "love handles" and "muffin tops".. sigh. At least I finally have a bustline. ;)

    I'm thinking I need to get back to the chain vaping I did when I first switched from smoking.

    Today I went through my stuff again trying to find a different mod for my daughter to take to work. She had my little Tesla Punk single battery mod with her last night and apparently all the people that vape loved the thing and were asking her all sorts of questions that of course she could not answer LOL

    Problem is you can't get those anymore and she is not the most careful gal. That or someone is gonna snag it. I need to find something else. I found a little evic I still had and it has a pink case so maybe she will be okay taking that. I'm letting her use my siren v2 (it's the only mtl tank I have that I don't care if it gets hosed or lost ) I mean I have that shitty kfun clone but I aint even gonna try to have her use that as it sucks!

    But the good thing is she has graduated from the pod system to a tank and mod setup.............baby steps............Now I just need to get her doing DL and we would be set as I have a shit ton of DL tanks that she could take and it would be no great loss if they went poof. :)

    That salad sounds great. I had a jar of almond butter in the house that was supposed to be creamy with a bit of maple sugar. Turned out to be crunchy. So I did not go mental with it!
    I’m chain vaping, but I put weight on in places I never did before. Like needing a new bra. Not thrilled at all. It’s weird, right? Lol

    I love blueberries too. They are superfood! I’ve never had apple fritters, yet.
    Nice talking to you, Andria. :wave: :cheers:

    I bought a Horizon Falcon Beak tank/mod from VaporDna for $30 on sale. It’s an internal 3000mah, so I hope I love it. Looks nice, in any event.

    That’s about it, except for a lot of vaping!

    Placed a small BCF order for Flv Sweet Coconut, VTA Orange Marmalade and Golden Syrup, FA Black Tea, WF Almond Cookie, and MB Glamour Chocolate. Not many flavors, but lots of good opportunities there.

    ETA: AND two hours later I get an e-mail and the BCF order is shipped! Awesome!

    I browsed Om’s juice sale, even though I don’t really need any. I may be tempted to buy since it’s cheap.

    I only saw one drip tip there for a Tugboat RDA. I get juice from them when they have something I'm interested in during their Happy Hour specials. I signed up and get emails telling me what's on sale during their Happy Hour each day. Regarding the something else......I'll post a pic when it arrives on Monday...:teehee:

    Got an email just now from Fast Tech, my replacement bubble glass order says it shipped. Don't know if the order was complete or if they shipped what they had. Patience is indeed needed when ordering from them.

    Did nothing vape related that I planned this week. Hard to go through all my vape stuff when my wife is asleep as she works third shift. I'm such a slacker

    Sounds more to me like you are a nice guy who is considerate of his wife when she needs to sleep.

    My husband has been taking really good care of me lately. I notice and appreciate, and I'm sure your wife does, too.

    I thought you meant the place that sells DTs in the UK. Happy Hour sales sound fun! But suddenly I’ve got to pay attention to the PG in my juice.

    I was thinking the same thing when I read that. The guys that think they’re inconsiderate usually aren’t.

    Patience or forgetfulness. If you just forget you ever ordered anything from them, then in 2-3 months you'll have a pleasant surprise. :D

    That's kinda what I figured after reading about them here. I really didn't have a choice as I couldn't find the bubble glass in stock here in the US. Looking forward to the order arriving as the stock glass is simply too small, have to reload juice far too often for my liking. Now the question that remains to be answered is if I ordered the correct replacement glass, it said it was for the Serpent Elevate, but did not say the SMM part which is what I have. Hope I'm lucky!!! :giggle:

    That's exactly when I'll order from FT -- when I can't find the product(s) I want anywhere else for any price. And I'm grateful for FT, even if I AM terribly impatient; I love the acrylic Ming driptips because of their mouth-feel (hate metal and glass tips!), extremely narrow aperture (great for tight draw!), and vast amount of colors... and I've acquired some nice ones from FT. But damn it's hard to wait that long!

    Swapped back to the Gorge, inclusive of cleaning up the CV mod the Trinity RDA was on. I think the Gorge & it are having a battle for favorite again. Vaped some. Charged a couple batteries.

    Had one try to arc and vent on me. I know why too, matter of the re-wrap slipping off and the battery contacting the inner tube of the CV. I got the battery out safely though.

    Saw it arcing as I was putting it into the CV. Goober me not expecting re-wrap to eventually need re-wrapped itself. Kind of at loggerheads now, re-wrap and use that battery, or not.

    I likely will not as I'm sure how the arcing effected it, aside from it got hot a bit until I got it out. Can buy other batteries. Can not buy another me in the case of a battery exploding, or venting all over me.

    "Oh c'mon you chicken!" *chuckles* "Nope, no thank you."

    Finally gave in and gave up my Telsa punk mod to my daughter. But, she bought me this. I have the brass one already. I like that it takes a 21700. I plan on painting that ARMOR logo black. That and I made of 60ml each of Kings Custard, Lemon Tart, Moon Sugar, Rocket Man and Strawberry Cheesecake. I still need to make some more Boozy Nanners :)

    Tonight I did something I have never done. I got so pissed off at a mod that kept saying shorted, I threw it across the room. Hell, I have never even done that with anything before. Maybe I need a pill........ LOL I'm kidding. There's nothing wrong with the atty, plus it was doing it with several different tanks/attys I tried on it. Stupid thing.

    So.............apparently tossing it across the room paid off ( so far anyway ) It's been working without any issues this morning. I guess I un-did
    whatever it was that USPS did.

    That sounds like how I "fixed" my failing (old!) CRT monitor by slapping the hell out of it. Apparently the electron guns were gunked with cigarette tar from blowing smoke at it constantly, and knocking the shit out of it knocked some of the tar off so the guns could fire again. :D

    But about a year later, I hear this "pop-pop-pop" coming from the "office" bedroom... run in there to see smoke coming out of the monitor and got that bastard unplugged PDQ!
