I wonder why Lamps Plus has a mailing list. I mean, how often do people really buy lamps?

Woman: Honey, I'm going to head down to the lamp store; I forgot to go last Saturday.
Man: Hey, pick me up a chandelier while you're there, would you? Thanks!
Woman: I'll be back by dinnertime. Want to go pick up a few more couches tonight when I get back?

I find it inexplicably awesome that you feel the need to assign names to that little exchange; and further, that they're the most generic names possible.

But now that you mention it, I do need to buy some more lamps...

Well, I recommend Lamps Plus as long as you don't mind that things will invariably end up broken and will need to be returned. Their customer service department is quite friendly; I got to know them really well.
