While Out On My "Rounds" Over The Weekend I Plucked This Big, Heavy, Fantastic Desk Lamp. It Didn't Have A Bulb In It And I Couldn't Test It...But It Was Worth Taking A Chance On. Status: It Works!
I had to run to the True Value hardware store late this evening to get an appropriate bulb for this beast. It came sans bulb from the thrift and I really had no idea what type it was supposed to have. Thanks True Value Sales Guy! They's so smart 'n stuff.
This thing weighs maybe 15...20 pounds. It has a ridiculous reach and it's like, industrial strength
steel. This must have come from a lab or something. It's not an average desk lamp. But that's what
makes it so dang cool.
There's no manufacturer label on it...or really anything other than the UL underwriters label. You'd
think there'd be at least a "what kinda bulb to buy" sticker or sumthin! Luckily the guy at the True
Value took one quick look at it and pulled the right bulb off the rack for me. He even pulled it out of
the package and popped it in to be sure. Good man.
So yeah, it totally works so this mad beast is getting tagged up and taken to Creve Coeur tomorrow.
I've actually got to stop by both Creve Coeur AND The Green Shag tomorrow so I'll be running
around all day. Just another day in the life!
