Pink Candies



Now that's really weird. Someone found my blarg by Googling Pink Smokers Lollies. These are the lollies (sweets or candy to the English... apparently a lolly is an ice-block in England. Although I have no idea what an American would call an ice-block... you'd probably call them a popsicle or something weird... bet an ice-block to you would sound like a type of crystal methamphetamine) ... what... what was I saying... oh yeah, These are the lollies I use to quite smoking. And in New Zealand they're actually called Pink Smokers. What's wrong with the name 'Musks' New Zealand? I wonder why anyone would name a sweet after anything to do with smoking? Maybe they're made from ex-smokers. Mmmm, ex-smokers are musky! Actually, that doesn't sound appetising at all. Although these do...



Cause they're just so damn cool. Although I used to get the Stallion brand, now they were a tough brand to pretend to smoke until they were kinda soggy and sticky and then eat. Yep, tough like a regular Marlboro pre-Teen...

Either way, still not smoking. All thanks to little pink... um, Smokers Lollies! Although I have noticed that... stones in shoes, people who sniff on the train, when your partner locks the front door but the back door is wide open while you're home so that to get back inside you have to walk all the way around the house, 'retro' t-shirts, voicemail messages of people hanging up after the beep, white people who think they're black, broken ATMs, slow walkers, slow walkers, slow walkers, did I mention slow walkers, dead batteries, dust, showing off clothing tags, mobile phone ringtones, having to search for the end of the cellotape with your fingernail, oh, and everything ever... IS REALLY FUCKING ANNOYING WHEN YOU DON'T SMOKE!!!!

Oh, I know it's annoying anyway but when you're a smoker none of those things (except for maybe slow walkers) make you fantasise about buying high powered weapons.


Take: 9

Oh you'll get over all that irritation. Then what will really annoy you is people smoking when you are trying to enjoy your meal & the smell of a smokers breath & their stinky smokey clothes & cigarette butts & dirty ashtrays & how smokers whine that they can't afford gas or food but can afford to spend 5.00 a pack for cigarettes,...& slow walkers. ;]

Actually L>t, THAT is exactly the problem. I've gave up for a period of two years and not for a single moment did I ever dislike the smell of cigarettes. Oh and it costs like $12 for a pack of cigs over here. You have to be well and truly wealthy to smoke in Australia. Oh well, I guess the taxes on cigarettes here (90% of the cost) pay for people with lung cancer. I get irritated by people who complain about taxes too... because they're usually slow walkers!

I tried to quit smoking when I lived in Australia. It didn't last long. I smoked enough while I lived there to last me three lifetimes. Viva la Winfield Blue!

P.S. I don't smoke anymore, but I am now craving a fag. Thanks a lot.

P.S.S. A "fag" means a cigarette in Aussie speak.

That P.S.S. was for American readers, not you.

Yo Brookster!

Good ol Winiblue! (all said as one word) Although if you were a real smoker it would have been Winired. Now that's an honest to goodness lungbuster.

I think it depends where you're from as to the fag tag. In Oxford Street a boy like me might be offered a whole nuther thing to smoke if I asked for a fag. I think my favourite name for cigs though is a 'Durry'.

Rich "Class!"


I love Australia!
