. . . is about to get a lot bigger. I tried, but I hate those compact fluorescent light bulbs. I know they use a lot less energy, but I loathe the light they give off. I stupidly put one in the bathroom fixture and now suddenly I have to wear makeup because who knew my skin had a green sheen to it?
I heard a story on NPR a few weeks ago about the difference in the way that men and women process light. Apparently women are way more sensitive to the fug that is the CFL glow, but I couldn't recall the exact science so I tried looking it up. Instead, I found a Washington Post article wherein an "expert" claims women don't like the harsh light because "we are the nesters."
So true—I'm nothing if not a "nester." Give me a doily, a soothing cup of herbal tea and a cozy afghan and I'm set. Barf.
