Who am I you ask? Christine Morgan, the Lovely Lady of the Stick. (And that is stick as in stogie or cigar and absolutely not referring to Jenna Jameson’s costars main “prop”.) Yes, I have a passion for cigars which began over 6 years ago with the encouragement and assistance from a dear friend, whom I dragged into a local shop in Maryland to help me select my very first cigars. (Frank, I blame you for creating this cigar monster!) Since then, I have moved to rural Oklahoma, where my greatest passion has the same effect on my neighbors as a stun gun would.
But alas, small town living has not tied me down and I have found many opportunities to “fly the coop” and attend cigar events all over the country. It all began with the help of CigaRobbie and the CigaRobbie Radio program. My weekly segment on the radio program helped me realize just how much I desired to be a larger part of the cigar industry, both as a knowledgeable and passionate consumer and an ambassador for our smoking rights. Since beginning the show, I have also started both YouTube and Ustream channels to chronicle my experiments and adventures. My cigar related travels have included and most certainly are not limited to: IPCPR 2010 New Orleans, Smoke in the Gables 2010, Texas Cigar Fest 2011 and IPCPR 2011 Las Vegas.
IWhen I am not smoking cigars, talking about cigars or talking about smoking cigars, I enjoy travel(while smoking cigars), small gatherings with friends(while smoking cigars), reading(about cigars) and telling pirate jokes like: Why did the pirate wear camouflage underpants??? To hide his booty!!
My future plans as the Lovely Lady of the Stick include continuing to shake up the industry with my hybrids and experiments as well as expanding my site, Ustream and YouTube and becoming a reliable source of information for both cigar novice and aficionado.
