Got Kafka settled into my brother's new apartment. Had some decent chats, finished God Delusion and FINALLY beat that one level in Patapon, moving to finish the game and see IT. Of course, IT wasn't anything compared to what I saw at Wimberly Glassworks:
They had leftovers from their annual "slightly irregular" sale. I got the big cylinder and the little horn as a bonus. Parents then got a (regular) $200 bowl and some earrings, so the lady at the checkout was authorized to give us a bonus irregular, and I picked out the smaller cylinder we all liked. Those stripes in the middle turn a dark blood red when you shine a light through them. We're going to fight over it.
The task I give you, dear readers, is to come up with some ideas for what I can do with the big cylinder. I'm thinking of making it a hanging ceiling light, or seeing if I can find a floor lamp that will curve around so it'll hang. The other end (not shown) is wide open. The big concern I have is that the thing's heavy: 6.4 pounds (~2.9 kg).
Height: 14 1/4 inches
Diameter: 6 inches.
Top hole diameter: 1 3/4 inches.
Interior diameter: 5 3/4 inches
