I'm not what most people would call mechanically inclined. I got that from my father, who was never quite sure what end of a screwdriver to use. So, this was quite an accomplishment. Now I just need to get used to the shadows that the new light fixture throws around the room. It's very bright, which is good, but very directional, meaning that I'm looking at shadows of my head most of the time.
Anyway, think I'll put the Internet up for the night and go watch Law & Order: Criminal Intent with Mary.
