The Evil Lamp

Why couldn't I have gotten a magic lamp with a genie who'll grant me every wish?

Instead I got this.

Looks pretty cool eh?

Sleek and shiny.

And who am I to argue?
But the only problem is that it didn't come with a bulb and guess what? .. the store that I bought it from doesn't sell bulbs that the lamp uses!!


So I got a standard one. I mean, it can't do me any harm could it?
As long as it's 40watt, I'm sure it'll work.


The thing turned smoking within a minute and the fuse blew.

So I decided to take it out.
and the cowardly thing broke!
Well, the bulb broke but the base was still in there.

Me being rather stupid and frustrated stuck my hand in to remove it.
And I cut myself .___.
It wasn't really that bad.
It just pierced my skin into my flesh right under the fingernail of my index finger.
Okay, it did hurt a lot.

I tried getting rid of it by wearing a glove but it was jammed in real tight!! >=(
I was getting really frustrated and decided to borrow a plier from someone
But no one has a pair of pliers!! >=(

I just left it there so it just sat there on my table...
you know, it was almost as if it was laughing at me!!

^Look at it mocking me!! >=(

So I went and bought pliers and after almost half an hour of twisting and turning it finally came out!! YAY~~!!

But I still haven't found any store that sells the right bulb *sulk*

For those who are wondering where I got the comic of the genie from, check out this cute little site :)

Check out another one of her works. I'm pretty sure she just used 'Paint' or something equivalent but they look so good!!
