My week of lighting

My loft is a giant hard-to-light cave. After three years, I'm finally getting around to solving this problem.

I just got three of these lamps for the loft. I love them! They're goofy and funky and twisted... just like me. Oh, and bright.

I've also been putting up the cable lights that I bought a long time ago, but never got around to putting up. I have twelve-foot ceilings in the loft, and the cable run is about 35' long. This means that I've spent lots of time going up and down the Scary Tall Ladder, drilling holes in drywall walls, stretching and restretching cable, putting fixtures together, just generally dealing with lots of annoyances. I'm approaching done, but one of the major tasks remaining is to mount the transformers, which requires my drilling several holes into a concrete wall. What fun! How bloody annoying!

After I spent half an hour drilling the first half inch of the first hole, I borrowed a hammer drill from some random person on Tribe. It's making it go a lot faster-- now a single hole only takes ten or fifteen minutes.

I'll post pictures when it's all done. If it ever is.

Oh, and I still have a freakin' cold. It's been a week and a half.
