They still make generators??

Yep I was able to get a brand new generator for a 1930's coleman desk lamp. Weird eh? I also found out that a shade is about $50USD. Thats too bad but atleast I should be able to get it working. I think it will be pretty cool to get that lamp running. I'm still struggling with my model 200 lantern, it refuses to burn well. I shouldn't say it isn't burning well... it just isn't burning as good as I think it could. I'm going to take it apart and see if there is anything in the air tube and I'm also going to try a smaller mantle and see how that goes.

We had a work sponsored pool night tonight. That went pretty well, I'm surprised how many people showed up because there was only 2 days of notice. I managed to lose a bunch of games for $2 a game but we did win one of them so I made some money back. I couldn't play to save my life for most of the night. I think I need more practice. The odd thing was that by the end of the night I was doing pretty well. I don't get it.

Jordan from work is throwing a little halloween party. I don't think I'm going to dress up but the beer is outside cooling as we speak. I should be fun and its good to get to know people outside of work. Its been good working at massload, too bad the benefits aren't great, but hey, atleast its not retail!
