Giant Sunlamp, day 1.

I pulled it out of the box, leaned it against the wall, and turned it on. Ohhhh yeeeeah. I wasn’t able to assemble the stand it comes with as the bag of Miscellaneous Fastening Hardware it should have come with is missing; I’ve emailed the company and hopefully that will get dealt with soon.

But in the meantime… I sat in the studio chair for a while, having breakfast and doing Internet and suchlike. I was about eight feet away from it. It felt nice. Not OMG RELIGIOUS CONVERSION nice but damn nice. And when I got up and went to take a shower, for the first time in months, “go back to bed” did not pop up as a suggestion for what goes on today’s to-do list, at all.

When I got out of the shower, my instincts said “oh hey looks like the sun is out, cool” until I looked again and realized all the shadows were cast from a point down by the floor.

Fuck. Yeah.

I used to work in just the sort of basement that shiny organizations traditionally stash their IT people in. After a serious bout of SAD in the summer, I installed a full spectrum light. The effect was subtle, but my cube felt a lot more 'real' than it had before. There was just something about the way the shadows fell that told me it was day.

All hail the artificial sun, the bringer of artificial light!

I bottled my apotheosis due to a paltry choice in the local mall. And I hate the choice online - the high end seems to want to pad things out with pseudoscience ionisation beams and tachyon polarity reversal modules, the low end is hard to trust. Mmmm. #zerothworldproblems #dissumerism

Today, perhaps.

All hail mobile Amazon, a long bus journey and the power of JFDI! Lamp on order.

Thanks for the impetus to finally sort this out.

I still try to go for a walk as often as I can make it, but some nights the hours will tick away, suddenly I realize it's 7pm and probably time to switch from full-spectrum to fluorescent again just to accommodate circadian rythms. Space aged technology!
