Would you rather work by candlelight or regular lighting if you are at your desk at night? Foruming, watching a movie on the computer, catching up on email, drinking excessively, or whatever.

 

Lately with the abundance of candles I've been given for thanksgiving and now Christmas, I've found that I rather enjoy turning the lights off and using a couple of candles instead.

 

Does anyone else prefer this? Please feel free to post in this thread about all of your candle related experiences.

I used to.. been quite some time though but I enjoy the dim lighting as well. Not to mention, better on the utility bill :)

Only time we ever light candles is when there's a power failure, which doesn't happen that often. But even then, we usually use battery operated lanterns or touch lights or something.

I prefer regular lighting otherwise.

We sometimes burn citronella candles though, to keep mosquitoes out of the house. It works (most of the time). Too many mozzies over here :sui:

Candles in my house are only used when we're trying to get a bad smell out or if we're having a classy dinner-rare.

Valentine's Day seems about the only day I burn them any more though.

 

Get all warm and fuzzy with your partner, 2mins later it's over. Priceless.

I love candles, but I've always kind of had an obsession with lighting. I remember I wanted a dimmer for my room back when I was in elementary because I love being in control of a room's mood.

It's kinda cool to put them up in the ass and take it out one week later. Really, try it.

I don't necessarily care for candles in terms of candle light.

but I regularly burn incense for the scent.

I use candles to start fires, most of the candle is gone by the time the building is burnt down and nobody expects an arsonist with a candle.

Your posts have been getting progressively worse over the last few months, by worse I mean downright retarded and your avatar reflects that. Please stop, just be a normal member again.

Anyway, to answer the original question, personally, I don't like candles that much, I used to like them when camping but now I bring a car battery and have split the wires for a little halogen downlight I have, the steady light is far better, especially for reading which I do a lot of, light that flickers is just an annoying distraction that constantly reminds me of where I am.

I reported that guys comment but it is still here. I guess it is acceptable here to go into threads and tell people to stick things in their ass. Oh well.

Pretty much this.

I love candles! I love bath and body works! I love masking the smell of my stinky room and giving off the illusion that my room is clean and smells like a girly flowery fruity tutti room! <3 I don't use candle light to see though because I have a big pet peeve with not enough light. My mom cooks in the kitchen at night with no light and doesn't care that the light is almost dead and I've resorted to using a head flash light at times. Sad, but true.

You are obviously relatively new over here. A while back there began to come up threads like "Weirdest Things You've Put Your Dick In", "Weirdest Things You've Put Up Your Ass" or "Weirdest Things You've Put In Your Vagina".

http://gtaforums.com...ut-up-your-ass/
http://gtaforums.com...in-your-vagina/

Yeah, Gtaforums has been a classy place for a long while...

Now regarding to your question, I don't use candless too often since I don't live in a slum and we can afford the light bill, but I sometimes use them in special occasions.

RIch people use candles all the time and that doesnt mean they are poor and live in a slum.

They have enough money to rebuild their house after it catches fire and burns down.

I do enjoy using candles, but usually to burn things. Lit candle+lysol=jolly good fun. My carpet would disagree though, which is why I no longer keep candles around. It's best to keep me away from fire in general.

 With one of those grill lighters.

I like to use candles for light.  I have actually been, with candle light, and electrical light, all my life with being a Civil War reenacter for all that time.  My dad makes lanterns for some of the sutlers and he said he'll show me how to make one.  We also have a lot of bee's wax candles that smell like honey.

I'm using a candle right now that smells like spruce and it really is making this place smell like the holiday season.

I like this idea of candle-lit internet usage. Now I'm no longer sitting in my room with the glow of my computer screen. I'm sitting in my room with the glow of Blackberry Spice candle (and computer screen.)


Is that gay? Maybe that's gay. It was a Christmas present. Is Apple Cinnamon also gay?

I don't use candles at all. Maybe a few when there is a power outage, but that's rare. I prefer regular lighting when doing anything.

So you did start a fire. Or do you not know how candles work?

 

 

And meh, hardly ever use candles. Only when the power goes out, or around Christmas.
