2. Have a desk lamp with a curly lightbulb in it. Every so often desk lamp turns off. Well, bulb goes dark, let's say. Asked the ojisan at Weiner's Home Hardware, he said that's weird, must be fault in the lamp. Bought a new lamp. This, please note, was last December. My inexplicable reluctance to deal with such things means I only replaced the lamp last night, but replace it I did. Yay me. Lamp just turned itself off again. And now I wonder if it's the curly bulb, which is definitely warm when I thought these guys didn't heat.
