    the lightbulb in my kitchen burned out and i changed it in 2 days. that's a record for me. i did everything in the kitchen by the refridgerator light, and a little night light for the 2 days before.

    i don't know what it is, but it takes me forver to change light bulbs unless it's absolutely necessary. i once ate a half a box of molded donuts that i didn't realize (cuz i couldn't see them) till i finally replaced the bulb.

    in my old place i had lots of lights so if a bulb went it could take me weeks, even months before i'd put a new bulb it.

    am i alone here??? how long's it take you to change a bulb, and feel free to post your "how many drummers does it take" jokes.

    It's bassists like you that give bassists a bad name. If I could swim, I'd come out there and kick your ass. ;)

    Ha, I think you might be alone on this one Joe. :D

    I like drummmers :(

    My guitarist friend told me this joke..

    "how many bassists does it take to change alightbulb? 1-4-1-4-1-4" thought it was hilarious. I thought it was stupid.

    That reminds me. I need to change the bulb in my desk lamp. (been meanin' to for a few weeks)
  6. Today i didn't change any light bulbs but i did re-wire my basement and install two new light fixtures and two new outlets on a new curcuit:D

    beat that.
  7. The apartment i have at college is kinda dark, no over head lights, so it gets dark when theres not enough lights. But most of the time im to lazy to walk over to a store and buy more light bulbs, so i wait untill either my room mate buys them or i get to annoyed about being in the dark.

    I know! I know!

    It takes 5 bass players to change a light bulb...one to change it, and 4 to beat up all the guitarists trying to hog the light...:p

    Can't you just get your keyboardist to do it with his left hand?

    I absolutely hate buying light bulbs. So I bought halogen lights for every light source in my house. They only run on 15 watts. Not to mention that they last for 5 to 7 years. Yes, they are more expensive, but I'll save money in the long run.

    So Joe, break down spend the money and buy the better lights for your place. And you won't have to eat any more penicillin donuts. Although they are festive around St.patricks day, they probably tasted like poop.

    I could change light bulbs much more quickly if I didn't have to rely on my better half to tell me where she hid the new ones ... er, put them away. ;)

    Don't you have the potential for penicilin in the mold?

    Could it be good for you? Could it be bad for you, but the penicilin is good, with the sum of no effect?

    People... gimme $40 and point me to a Dunkin Donuts: this cannot go unanswered.
