yes, last saturday joe won the worst lamp ever in a silent auction. we were at a fundraiser for the aids alliance in bartow county, which joe helped organize, and we found several things we wanted to bid on in the silent auction. i won a great package: bath salts, a candle, a spa gift certificate and a gift certificate to a restaurant. joe isn’t allowed to have his lamp out when anyone’s over. he bid on, and won, a jeff gordon touch lamp. awful doesn’t even do this lamp justice. i’ve never seen anything like it. once he takes a picture of it i’ll post it on here. it’s a touch lamp with jeff gordon’s picture on all the glass panes. everyone who saw his name on the bid sheet kept coming up to us and asking, “you don’t really want that, do you?” i’m still rolling my eyes about it.
