Shopping trip

The one thing that I asked for as a prerequisite to my move into this basement half-sized cubicle was full-spectrum lighting so that my plant wouldn't die, and so I wouldn't be subject to the physiological problems that result from a lack of natural light.

After the move three weeks ago, I asked my supervisor the status of that request, and he said he'd forgotten to pass it along, and CC'd the building coordinator. The building coordinator had no idea what I was talking about, so I explained.

Yesterday I asked for an update, and after several back-and-forth e-mails helping him nail down what I wanted, he said maybe Gina or Cindy (our direct-support admin staff) could pick something up at Home Depot while making their next Staples run, or I could get an exempt certificate from them and get it myself. Why this couldn't happen three weeks ago escapes me.

This afternoon I have to head to the southwest anyway, so I think I'll make a trip to Home Depot. I haven't been there since it opened a few months ago. What else do I need?
