Quite Illuminating

A couple weeks back, I was looking for a good online site to buy a cool lamp for our dining room.

I found nothing, which was surprising. I am decently familiar with this whole Internet thing, having used the web back when Yahoo! was located at My first exposure to the limitless possibilities and unquestionable value of the Internet occurred in 1993 when I logged onto IRC to trash-talk a couple of Los Angeles Kings fans about the Leafs-Kings playoff series that year.

But I digress. The long-winded point I was trying to make is that because I have been using the medium for 10 years, I know how to find things on the web. Which made it annoying that I could not find a ecommerce site that sold cool lamps at reasonable prices.

That was until today, when I ran across, via a forgotten blogger to whom I am thankful.

Aside: I wanted to link to a recap of that 1993 series, but after a cursory search, I couldn't find one. Interesting, and not surprising, I guess.

Oh dear. Your excitement over these lights reminds me of that scene in 'Old School' where Frank-the-Tank can't take a hit off the keg 'cause he's got a big Saturday of Home Depot and Bed Bath & Beyond lined up. Sigh.
Life in the 'burbs.
