So I bought a set of lamps for my bedroom. I've had them for about a year and one day I noticed on lamp tilted to the side a bit. I figured one of the cats had just knocked it off balance because the damn brats are fixated on rubbing their damn faces on both lamps as often as they can. Anyhow, I went to right the lamp, but it wouldn't stay standing. It felt like the post was loose from the base and I assumed it just needed to be screwed back in. But when I tried that, nope. So I peeled back the felt that is on the lamp base bottom and inside was a round weight that the post of the lamp fit in, however, the center of it that held the post tight was broken in pieces, too many to glue back together. So now I have no idea how to fix the lamp. Ideas? Maybe I could get some washes that are wide enough and glue that to the weight inside the base?
Yeah. I was looking at it again today and even if I found something that fit the post and was wide enough to be able to be glued to the base weight I'd have to undo all the wiring to get it in place and is it really worth all that? Phooey. I'm so annoyed because it was the first time I had matching lamps. And the mismatched ones I have don't go together enough to be considered shabby chic like. They just don't plain ol' match.
Step 1. Unplug the lamp from the wall. Step 2. Remove the bulb if it's still good. If not, never mind. Step 3. Pick up the lamp. Step 4. Take the lamp to the trash can. Step 5. Throw the lamp into the trash can. Step 6. Get your money. Step 7. Get in your car. Step 8. Start your car. Step 9. Drive to wherever you go to buy lamps. Step 10. Buy a new lamp or set of lamps. Step 11. Put your new lamp or lamps in the car. Step 12. Get in the car and start it. Step 13. Drive home. Step 14. Take the lamp or lamps out of the car and bring them inside. Step 15. Set the lamp or lamps up where you want them. Step 16. Turn them on to see if they work. Step 17. Step 18. Profit!
There's nothing an agnostic can't do if he doesn't know whether he believes in anything or not.

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
