What a week! My muscles have atrophied and my eyes have grown sensitive to bright light but this Dragon-born is ready for his triumphant return to the real world.
Ok, I'll stop with the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim references (But seriously, go pick this game up right now!).
In order to get back into the swing of things, I've decided to take up yoga again. I participated in a class several years ago and really enjoyed it, so we'll see how that goes.
In other news, my fellow blogger Kate over at Retro Ranch Revamp, posted this fantastic retro-modern lamp yesterday. You can click the link to read more about it, but long-story-short, there's a small start-up, Caravan Pacific, that is collecting money over at Kickstarter so that they can begin production. They call it the Alberta, but I'm going to refer to it as the Lamp of +10 Coolness (OK, that's the last one. I promise.)

When I saw it, I couldn't believe my eyes. It looks almost exactly like the mid-century lamp that I've pursued for the last several months!

This is the only picture that I could scrounge up online, but these things pop up all the time on Craigslist in St. Louis. I'm just NEVER off of work early enough and they go practically as soon as they're posted.
In all honesty, I actually like the reproduction more, as the extra weight on the bottom makes it appear a bit more visually balanced. However, the repro goes for $275, which is way, way out of my price range.
Can anyone ID this lamp? I can't find anything, but they must have been fairly popular if they're popping up so frequently.
By the Nine Divines, I must have one! (Help! I can't stop myself)
