Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

hi all

i got my earthly belongings all the way from england to australia in a container, in one piece, including my green, and my opal fluidium mathmos lamps...

however, my mother, who was here to help us unpack, appears to have gotten over enthusiastic with the unpacking of the lava lamps, and threw away all of the packing paper surrounding them, including the white plastic top that sits on top of the opal fluidium bottle!
it had to be the opal one that got lost- ofcourse, rather than the easily replacable green top, but i wasn't going to make a fuss...my mum and i have history regarding these fluidium lamps, that goes back many years, from when she shook up my heated greem fluidium bottle when it was a week old "to see what happened". i hit the roof, and mum learnt her lesson, but i hope i have matured enough to not let a lava lamp part damage our relationship again...but it just had to be the bloody opal top she threw out for ***** sake!

anyway, if anyone has a redundant opal fluidium that they could sell me the top from, i would appreciate hearing form you!
my lamp is rather usless without it, as it looks like a girl with no hair, so i would like to find it another wig!

please reply here, if you have wind of where i could find one!

regards
katrina

yes, sod's law says if something is going to happen, it will happen to the least common one, not the dime a dozen piece! lo! aw well..whatever!!!

Opal Cap on sale Ebay Germany!!!

oooh! do you have a link???

thanks, i ended up finding it! unfortunately they say they only will post within germany, but i used google translate to write a message asking if they'd consider sending to the uk...

I recommend you 'save a search' on Ebay, as you'd probably have got one by now since 2009. A base and cap sold a month or so ago for £55, and it's very likely you might have to pay a bit to replace it (probably your mother should be happy to pay), and I've certainly seen a cap in the last 3 years on ebay too. good luck!

my mother has already had to pay for my green fluidium once before, so asking her to pay for this one wouldn't go down too well!!!
when they were both new, and i had them on, my mum, who was staying with us at the time, was inquisitive, and decided to see what would happen should she "shake it"!

unfortunately, it wasn't a good result and i flipped my lid when i came out and saw her and the lamp.mum can be very irritating, and that was the last strw..had it been any one else, they would have gotten away with it, but mum had to replace the botttle...unfortunately she was silly enough to then ask for the wrecked bottle as a "souvenir"!!! arghhhhhh!!!
