Thanks, Eric. I enjoyed your smoking essay. It makes me wonder how I would feel about smoking if it weren’t so deadly, stinky, and nausea inducing. I think I could possibly fall for a smoker, but it would have to be one with a more casual addiction (if that’s not an impossible anachronism) than Simion.

About Belgrade, it has been a uncharacteristically mild winter — or so I’ve been told by a number of incredibly sexy men. I never considered that it might be a Dacula thing that makes so many of them so irresistible, but interestingly enough, they all seem to respond quite enthusiastically to having their necks nibbled.
