I'm with spazpanda. Jeez. I can't imagine if I had to buy a gift every time one of my friends moved.

And registering? Tacky and presumptuous for sure. I can't imagine more than, say, 3 friends have asked them what they need for their new apartment. And while I would argue that they should answer "NOTHING, just your warmth," and get their own damn stuff... if they really want to they could give specific answers to those few people.

The other people -- who have not asked you what you want -- they don't want to be made to feel guilty by your out-of-place registry.


Tacky or Tasteful? Registering For a Housewarming | Apartment Therapy Los Angeles

Here's a question:
We have one ceiling fan in my house that looks a bit like this:
http://www.lightingsuperstore.com.au/files/products/concept_white_light.jpg
There are several others like it, but this one in particular, the light bulb burned out (one of those 5 year rings) and NOBODY can get the top off. It's just a screw off cover, but we've all failed miserably. It's so tight you feel like you're just going to pull the whole fan out of the ceiling. My landlord tried as well, as did her husband... no luck.

Anyone have this problem before? Any advice?

You can also make your own out of old t-shirts (or the copious free ones one comes across...). Cut off the sleeves, cut out the collar, and sew up the bottom. Voila! Shopping bag.
