Bad Lamp Luck
March 14th, 2002 - 5:07 a.m.I'm Currently Avoiding:
Just now, at about 5:17 am (the time up above is a bit slow...well, that and the time on my alarm clock is a bit fast), my light gave away. What I mean by that is that the lamp that provides the main source of light for my room (usually the *only* source of light for my room actually), suddenly gave a bright blue flash and then went dark entirely. I think it was a rather spectacular way for the bulb to burn out...but I don't appreciate it in the least. I really don't. I hope that the only problem with the lamp is the damn bulb. I'd really hate to have to buy a second lamp this year after I already replaced the first one. Damn things. I just don't seem to be having any luck with lamps this year. I guess if I get desperate I could take the two lamps from the other room that I never use and light the room that way, but I really don't like those lamps. I guess things will work out by themselves eventually.
lambent (adj. LAM-bunt)
1 : playing lightly on or over a surface : flickering
2 : softly bright or radiant
3 : marked by lightness or brilliance especially of expression
Fire is frequently associated with lapping or licking imagery: flames are often described as tongues that lick. Lambent is a part of this tradition, coming from lambens, the present participle of the Latin verb lambere, meaning to lick. In its earliest uses, lambent meant playing lightly over a surface, gliding over, or flickering. These uses were usually applied to flames or light, and eventually the term came to mean radiant or light and brilliant.
There are just some songs you can listen to over and over and over and over again...and then you get sick of them and never want to hear them again.
