Chandeliers

Look up. Do you see a chandelier? If yes, then you're either in a castle or the home of a very cool person. If not, then you are probably at home, in your distinctly non-castle home, with you distinctly non-cool light fixtures. Would it kill you to class up the joint. No, don't answer that, it was rhetorical. Seriously? Jesus. No wonder you don't have a chandelier.

Bill Lear of Lear Jets named his daughter, Shanda. Shanda Lear. What other weird names have you personally seen in the wild? I went to school with a Melody Music.

I've been looking to replace my HIDEOUS dining room chandelier that came with the house when we bought it. Have been looking for 16 years and haven't found one, until now. The Piedmont might be just what I'm looking for. Pretty pricey elsewhere, closer on Overstock.com, no reviews Now, to convince DH...

I just wanted to clarify that these are NOT indeed chandeliers, but hanging lights! Do you see any crystals? I think not!

I went to school with a girl named Candy Cane.

We also knew a boy with the name of Tanner Grey. I never thought about it until my husband remarked that his name sounded like his parents couldn't decide on a color. (Yeah, go back now and repeat his name out loud.)

I used to sell timeshare vacations when I was a very, very, very young sweet thang out in South Lake Tahoe and met a beautiful girl who worked the line as well [we were the only young girls and we worked with about 30 older distinguished gentlemen] (VERY senior seniors) and this beautiful girl was as FRESH as her way-too-awesome name....the one, the only...Miss Windy Parks. I don't know how we were so blessed in our youth, but we took our job seriously and we sold the shizzazz out of those timeshares. Nobody expected young girls to be so poised and capable or serious...we blind-sided everyone we came in contact with. BAM! One sale after the other. And when I say she was beautiful...she was beyond stellar...beyond ethereal.

I remember him! I actually called into his show and was on air around 2000. It was funny because he mispronounced my name and my ex heard me on that segment.

I dated... well, that's the politically correct term for it... a girl named Candy Barre when I was in college.

IF the bulbs lasted as long as they claim, they do not. About the same as an incandescent 95% of the time, sadly.

Got a wedding invite one time, the groom's name was Norbert Cranky Doodle Donkeyman. Sounds like someone that would kill their parents with an axe.

I once had a client who hyphenated her last name when she got married.

Maiden name was Seymour

Married name was Butts

Childish giggling always ensued.

A CFL with a GU24 base isn't any more efficiant than a CFL with an E26 base, but the one with the GU24 costs 4 to 5 times as much.
