New lamps or new top end:

Recommended Posts

Ok, so the man is actually planning ahead for our anniversary and he's hinted that he's horded some extra $$$ for my enjoyment. Not expecting that at all. Wow. I kinda feel bad because I haven't planned anything!

The KDX could use some maintenance. Like a new top end and some other minor stuff. But I won't be riding until fall.

I've hated the lamps in our bedroom for the last, er, 10 years or so....and I found these: http://home-decor.hsn.com/tiffany-style-simulated-crystal-glass-charm-table-lamp_p-4080473_xp.aspx?webm_id=0&web_id=4080473&sf=hd&dept=hd0070&ocm=HD|hd0070&prev=hp!sf!dept&ccm=HD|hd0070

I like the "blue" ones. Although the "neutral" is pretty cool too.

Decisions, decisions!

I can't decide which statement is more alarming. I feel fairly sure neither will ever be uttered at the palatial llama estate.

I know. So sorry. We all wish we had your life velo. Some things just aren't FAIR!!! I do have access to beer though.

The truck also needs new wheel bearings. I was trying to not be terribly practical for a change.

or go to a thrift store and find some lamps and use the leftover money for a new topend

I ALREADY have nice (ugly) used lamps. Why would I want more?

I know I'll WISH I'd gotten the new top end later. But I see the lamps everyday and I've been wanting NICE lamps for a while.

We've already have three or four. I guess I could fashion an NICE shade for 'em. That way I can have a snazzy light for camping!

Ok, forgive me...I'm not the most home interiors person...I love Ikea and Target for their simplicity. What makes a lamp "nice" to you? Not sure if it means $XX.xx or just a look or a special feature you're looking for. I don't know what your room is like either. We went everywhere looking for lamps and other house things and guess where we ended up finding the lamps we loved and bought? Home Depot :)

Perhaps you could find some NICER used lamps and still be able to spring for your bike stuff.

My issue is, we've spent money on stuff I didn't really like but it filled a need (like light). I'm not spending MORE money on crap I don't want. I rather keep the ugly lamps I hate than blow money on another crap replacement. If I really wanted to go cheep, I could buy new shades for the lamps and spray paint the base, which isn't such a bad idea.

Sorry.

Home depot has nice stuff too. I really like Tiffany Style lamps. Blues and greens. It's hard to find cut glass lamps in simple forms that aren't, er, way too girly.

Maybe I should just go be practical again and get wheel bearings for the truck.

Nah, forget the top end, I'm thinking CRF150RB!:)

We'll see...

Noooow, we're talking!!! Oooohhh baby! We have to sell the other truck first and finish paying off the newer one.

It's sad 'cause I really really do LIKE my KDX.

So, Pete and I decided to get matching CRF150RBs for each side of the bed. Whenever we need light we can just start the bike. Then we can hang a Tiffany shade on the tail pipe.

Problem solved.

But I like green plastics. Hmmmmm.
