First things first, to get the obvious out of the way – no, I do not miss Canada. To hell with your ice, salt, and general lack of common decency for human comfort levels.
I shan’t ever return (to live). Sorry, not sorry.
The UK being my playground means that I have been doing 100% of the paperwork. So far no issues have cropped up besides the UK’s interesting regulations with regards to how mortgages and business banking should look like, but in general, I am impressed by how much Elise & I have been able to accomplish in so little time.
To be fair, we have been planning this move for two years now so I should hope we knew what we were getting into!
The UK’s inexplicable war against the many benefits of cigars & pipe tobacco means that costs are prohibitive to the point that I can’t even. Literally.
Thus I am back to vaping. Old Blighty seems to have embraced this phenomon wholeheartedly, and vape stores are a dime a dozen. Within 5 minutes (walking) of me, I can acquire nicotinated juice from 5 different premises. Wonderful.
Even better than that, I can buy my gear from Amazon.co.uk and have it arrive the next day thanks to Prime, so I have been splurging on a bunch of mods & atomizers, which satisfies the giant nerd in me. As you can see below, I did try the 0.5 ohm nonsense, and I just don’t get it. Why do people like such low resistance coils? Super hot vapor, and a rough throat hit. Not impressed. I shall stick to my Protanks, Evods & RBAs.
The Kanger Box Mini is dope, though. Sexy as hell (more on that and other vaping stuff in another post).
And lastly, we did accomplish one thing very quickly….
…very quickly indeed.
