Hi Jeremy,

I thought you would like to know that [-----] was very pleased with her lamp. It would, in fact, be no exaggeration to say that she was overjoyed. She described it as the best Christmas present that she had had this year, and seemed genuinely astonished that it had somehow been unwanted by two different people. She's now wondering if she can get another one, so she can have one on either side of her bed... So, thanks very much for that. You've made someone's day.

Later, Alex.

You are clearly the person to know in a certain kind of emergency. Actually, I have two hideous lights I don't know what to do with.
*hopeful*

Well, here's one:
Wall Light with Range of Filters
The other is, I suppose, kind of sweet, it's a revolving disco ball about the size of a large grapefruit. The dust it's gathering under my bed is a TRAGEDY. *attempts ABBA impersonation*

Re: oh yeah?
The disco ball sounds fab. Want to swap for... um... a shiny picture frame and a crocheted purse?

Re: oh yeah?
Are you another Oxford person? I'm probably visiting cleanskies in a couple of weeks. We could do the exchange then?

Naw, I'm a Londoner. Maybe she wouldn't mind if I posted it to her...

That's NOT a very nice wall-light. But you do seem to have a taker already for the disco ball, woo-hoo! *attamepts bad Michael Jackson impersonation*

It's horrible.
My EL threatened me with eviction if I put it up anywhere she had to see it. Still, your ugly lamp mojo has already helped me!

Re: uhm ...
you are now a one-woman freecycle list, aren't you?

(just waiting for the 'wanted laptop, must be modern' comments to follow...)

Re: uhm ...
Oh, yes, I'm on my local freecycle list and am constantly amazed at the things people ask for. That said, I've found it very useful, having recently got rid of a surplus microwave and set of bathroom scales and gained a manual lawnmower.
