On apologising to a lava lamp

The lava in my lamp is in a mood with me. It doesn't cheerily rise and fall any more – it merely sulks in a big pink hump in the bottom, and globbers from time to time, in the way only a grumpy lava lamp can. This might have been because I forgot to tell it to go to bed last night during my essay writing marathon. It sat up with me until 3.30am, and I don't think it's used to keeping such late hours. I am, as always, appropriately racked with guilt, and am trying to make amends, but it is proving difficult. How can I restore joy to a lava lamp? They work in mysterious ways. Hopefully, after a good sleep it will recover, though I have this feeling it may take a while.

Huh. I never have this problem with the fairy lights.

(It also worries me that I almost thought calling this entry What a Pa-lava was a good idea. I blame Jane.)

  1. You're only supposed to leave them on for a few hours at a time! It's probably exhausted, poor thing, and I think your method will work – give it a good rest and see how it feels in a while.

  4. I think I've spent too much time in the real world of late, where such a thing would have probably knocked my degree classification two notches down… or maybe up, who knows? And now I never will…
