Just had to share my exciting new find—the MICRO-MINI compact fluorescent light bulb!

Tell me. Am I the last to know about these smaller sized, eco-friendly wonders?


I've been complaining incessantly to anyone who will listen (sorry, Mom) about the HUGENESS of compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs). "They stick out the top of my bedside lampshades! I can't even fit one inside my lamp with the Tiffany-inspired shade! We can put a man on the moon, but we can't make a right-sized CFL?!!!"

Well, turns out, if you actually look for something you want, you might just find it.

Ahhhhh. Now I can sleep tonight.
