I live in Scotland and collect Ouija boards and Lava Lamps.
Where I Live:
My First Lava Lamp was:
I was given a Lava lamp for Christmas when I was about 13. I used it most nights for a year when the bulb finally blew. I put It into storage. It was a cheap china knock off, but as I remember was a nice flow. 2 years ago I found a mini rocket lamp at a car boot sale for £2 I bought it. I was amazed once again. I started researching lava lamps, I had never even heard of Mathmos! I was hooked! My nephew wanted my little rocket lamp so I gave him it, and started heading for bigger and better lamps, 2 years later and I am the proud owner of many Mathmos lamps.
I have tried to explain to my friends how great they are, referring to them as "the perfect pet", but they just don't get it.
I have still never found my original lamp I had when I was 13... *sigh*
