    It will probably get worse as the day wears on. Take a nap. Take two or three naps. And get them drugs!

    My focus today is on Pop's Chocolate Cookie recipe. I think he lifted the recipe off a website somewhere. Anyway, I mixed it back on 9/25 and tried it on 10/9. It wasn't too bad. It was too cakey for me (sugar cookie) but at least it had some good flavors in it and worthy of tweaking. So I made two tweaks. Both cut the sugar cookie by at least half or more. Both also increased the milk chocolate by at least 50% or more One cut the double chocolate in half and the other cut the brown sugar by 75%. They've been steeping a month so they're more than ready for sampling. I just started Tweak #1 and it's already closer to what I was looking for. I'll keep pulling on this one for awhile then will switch to Tweak #2.

    I'm continuing to confirm that I'm not a big fan of flavors that are too cakey. They're not horrible or anything and I do like some level of cakey but there is a limit and I'm slowly discovering what that is.

    In case anyone is interested, I've been vaping this since June, and it's a solid clone of mothers milk I like it a lot. Not terribly complicated, but takes a month of steeping.
    - cheesecake (Graham crust) TFA - 5%
    - sweet strawberry CAP - 10%
    - vanilla custard v2 CAP - 2%
    - sweet cream CAP - 3%
    - bavarian cream LA - 3%

    I am calling the pharmacy at 10:01 I am acutely aware that if you only needed steroids, like, for pneumonia, that is what I would have gotten every time.

    Yeah, I already feel worse but unfortunately I have not napped since college. It's a thing. I have passed out, but just curled up for a nap on the sofa? Not so much.

    My older brother could fall asleep at will. : I hated him.. Especially on two day car trips where my parents would plough on and I would be the only one awake. I did hear some interesting discussions between my parents though (and arguments) so it wasn't all lose-lose. LOL.

    It sounds good but that sure is a lot of flavoring. Why so high on the strawberry?

    I got some organizing done this morning. I put away some 10ml flavors and put a bunch of 30’s into my extra stack on case. I’m procrastinating on putting away the RF flavors. I keep looking at my five boxes of mods and tanks and don’t know where to start. I’d like to group the same brands of stuff together and put pods/coils with the correct mods or tanks. It’s just overwhelming.

    It's my stash of accessories that's daunting me. Spare glasses, screws, insulators, squonk bottles, and whatnot. I got a huge delivery of doo-dads from FT more than a week ago and just haven't had the strength to deal with it. And then there's the drawer . . .

    I was hoping for a from scratch recipe.
    I was thinking maybe 7% VBG, 2% Banana Ripe, 1% Cinnamon Danish Swirl (for cinnamon and sweet) and 1% Jamaican Rum. Maybe...

    Yeah, but then you can go with someone who already did a from-scratch recipe that apparently many folks like.

    My past experiences with complex mixtures (Apple Pie, Banana Nut Bread, Chocolate Coconut Candy) were less than stellar. Mixing from scratch, I find the opportunity to adjust the mixture.

    I gave my Sugar Cookie away. Too cakey, too sweet. I could no doubt work mt way around the too cakey but not the too sweet.

    Interesting. For myself, I would lessen the strawberry and use Fresh Crean instead of Sweet.

    Maybe you should sell some stuff or whatever if you have that much of.
