No lights [Sep. 14th, 2001|01:24 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I wish this house had lights in it ... all the built-in house light fixtures don't work. Rather, they get no power... our house was built during a time when people were starting to think having a 120 volt switch on the wall was dangerous they have relays in the walls (which make really loud clicking noises) and low voltage switches. Problem is... most the relays are dead. The bathroom lights work... the kitchen works. One light in the dining room works.

We have a really nice light fixture above the stairs but it has no power.

So.... I trip & fall up and down it every night. It hurts. I'm stupid.

The Light Problem

Get thyself to Target.

You can get a six-pack of those touch lamps that use AA batteries for CHEAP!

I'm in a 100 year old (aprox) building, where the elevator fails every week or so, and the lighting blows - but thanks to the magic of touch lights - no more banging feet while I get up at night.

If you have problems finding them, I may be able to pick them up for you.

...so when he trips he hits the cord and the light turns off, mockingly saying, "Haha!"? Hmm...
