There are two light fixtures in our kitchen. One of the bulbs blew out today in one of them, and the other was already down to one working bulb, so I decided to put new, working bulbs in.

These fixtures have big white glass domes that cover the bulbs inside, and are held in place by a little metal nub that is screwed into place at the bottom of the dome.

So I changed the bulbs, and put the domes back into place, and yay, nice bright kitchen again. Then I walked mangofandango up to the Union for her final performance of the Vagina Monologues.

When I returned, one of the big glass domes had fallen and shattered on the kitchen table. There were about a thousand medium-sized pieces of glass and ten billion microscopic shards all over the entire kitchen.

I spent quite a while vacuuming. Aiee.

Now I need to pay for the replacement fixture, undoubtedly. All because it's damn near impossible to get the little metal nub to screw on securely. Grr arrgh.

That happened kinda in the apartment back in Jersey. Except we hadnt just changed it. New people moved in upstairs, and were VERY loud and bumpy and stuff. About a month after they moved in, I was getting ready for work, there was a HUGE bump from upstairs over the kitchen and the dome cover thing fell about 2 feet away from my cat, scaring the bejeesus out of her, and of course me.

Make sure you wear slippers for the next couple weeks in that room. I learned that no matter how long you spend with a vacuum, mop, broom, and swiffer, you will never be able to get every piece of glass, and apparently those little pieces of glass feed on human feet.
