Lightbulb Update

I'm sitting in my room trying to get homework done, and my eyes are aching because I'm working under minimal light.

Frustrated, I removed everything from the top of my tall dresser (which is surprisingly sturdy), and discovered that I could almost reach...something taller just needs to be under or on top of the dresser. However, we have no chairs in our house, or anything the dresser could sit under or on top of. In addition, I am terrified of heights. Natty has offered to climb whatever structure we create out of furniture, but she's only about 5 feet tall.




  1. I know some tall people.

  2. Natty's boyfriend has declared the dresser unstable. I think this is a light person's job.

    Get a big thick ass elastic band and a hockey stick. Double wrap the elastic band around the bulb and the stick, you can reach up and screw it in. then just pull on the stick and the band and stick will come free leaving you with a lightbulb. It work in my head. Try it out. Dayn

  5. Hmmm...that actually might work except I don't know a hockey stick and how would I get the old bulbs unscrewed?

    the old bulb would stick to the rubber band on the top - usually those things aren't screwed in too tightly.

    however if you're just an inch or two short, i could try. i am both taller than you and not afraid of dying.

    just get a thick coat and get the vacuum close by. Then smash the lightbulb with the stick and wedge the butt end in the lightbulb casing and unscrew it. The hockey stick will insulate the electricity, as long as it's a wooden one, and not one of those new fangled carbon one. It ain't pretty, but it'll work.
