I leave all my incandescent lamps on 24/7. Not only that, if the house
gets too warm in the winter or too cold in the summer, I just open the
windows instead of turning down the heat or the a/c. I have the
thermostat on the water heater set at 190. I take 30 minute hot showers.
I keep my car running around the clock, in case I feel the urge for a
quick drive. I throw away all food leftovers every day(I mean, is there
really any reason to eat reheated food? Gross!). I boil water for my tea
on the gas burner, and then microwave it for good measure. Nobody is
going to tell me how to live my life.
I would suggest, though, that you use any extra light bulbs you buy to
create an outdoor light show that you could keep on 24 hours a day,
because you may not be able to sell them:
