No More than 5 Years — Guaranteed!

Mae's Days

How many Maes does it take to change a lightbulb? Just one, and not only does the bulb get changed, a blog post comes out of it.

When changing a lightbulb today, I noticed the following written on the package:
Lasts up to 5 Years

Guaranteed to last up to 5 years. But not more than that! In fact, if it doesn’t blow within 5 years, they’ll replace it with one that did, no charge!

For the curious, the bulb in question is a Philips Marathon fluorescent bulb for standard light sockets. The light it makes is fairly good, especially considering it’s only 15W. But we’ll see how long it lasts… 😉

Kate Beckinsale on why she’d rather eat vag than sushi


I read a post by this title on another site, cele|bitchy (yeah, the name is what attracted me). The author there seems to strongly disagree with the statement.
Personally, I’m on Kate’s side. And yes, I’ve tried sushi. First time I liked it. Every time I’ve had it since then, I’ve liked it less and less. Now, well, there’s an awful lot of things I’d rather eat.
It’s not the “slimy” fish or whatever that turns me off. It’s the seaweed wrapper which has a lot more in common with electrical tape than anything else.
Kate adds, “At least a vagina would be warm.” I’d have to agree on that one too. Plus, in addition to being warm, it’s sweet tasting, and tends to return the favour. Can’t say that about sushi. Only complaint I have is a mouthful of hair is a real turn-off.
