Today is numero uno for me and the blogosphere. The name ‘The Smoking Jacket’ comes from my days at university when my friends and I would each don a smoking jacket and puff on a finely crafted pipe while discussing the weeks obscence stories and gossip. The jacket was our superman cape. A way to be someone else momentarily. Call it dum b and call us clueless, but it was a damn good time. I tip my hat to my comrades and hope to preserve the essence of those times in this blog. Danke!
