The official turning on the lights at home thread

Postby Call_of_the_Wendigo on Mon Sep 01, 2014 7:54 pm

Here's where we can record when we turn the lights on at home, so we can track the shortening of the days as the autumn and winter approach. :excited:


It's 7:53 and I have just switched the lights on at home. :dontpanic:

This has to be the best thread ever in the history of the Internet. Through it, we'll be able to gain a heightened perception of how our lives are draining away and how death grows nearer with every passing day. :excited:

No other forum presents a service to its users like this one does.

It's just another reason why the Hall of the Wendigo is winning while other forums are losing.

I don't know if I should participate in this thread, because my cyċene is very badly off for natural light, and I often have to put the lights on in there during the day even in the height of summer.

I think this is definitely one of the best threads ever. The lights are already on so I can't really oarticipate tonight.

I will do so tomorrow though.

Well it is spring around these parts! I predict I'll turn my lights on tonight around the 17:30 mark. Just in time for the Simpsons.

Oh I never did report when I turned the lights on. I'm sure you were all dying to know as well. Let me pay extra special attention this afternoon.

I don't know if the absolutist model is going to work for me. I mean, I put the light in the front room on at 5.30 when I was eating my tea, but that was just so I could read Private Eye better. I turned it off again when I finished eating, and didn't turn on any other lights until much later, about 8pm I think.
