I am back and more determined than ever to blog at a consistent rate. Casie is soon to be leaving on here clinical and I figure that I should blog up a storm while she is gone.
Luckily, I have a subject in mind for the grueling series of blogs before me.
As many faithful readers of our blog (aka: our friends) already know, a friend of ours is visiting this week. He has an interest in nerdy things, much like me. In a rather ambitious move, we have decided to make a giant, working, Nintendo controller coffee table for the living room.
Thats right, bask in the awesome-ness of that statement. I'll let it soak in.
Alright enough soaking.
My excitement is tempered by the feeling of looming disappointment though. "Why?!" you may shout in shock, awe, and inquiry (as indicated by the punctuation "?!"). Well there are 2 reasons that I may be disappointing. The first is that our current progress is as follows: we have decided on a scale (11:1 in case you were wondering) and after several hours of cumbersome measurements and re-measurements, we have decided to use the metric system for our project.
The second reason that I feel the looming threat of disappointment is this projects overall ambitiousness. It is quite the task to construct a 4 1/2 foot long coffee table, whether resembling a Nintendo controller or not.
In any event it should be entertaining to read along as we attempt to construct a giant, working, Nintendo controller coffee table. If it works, its pure brilliance may blind some of you when we post the pictures. If it doesn't work, you can all laugh at the near-audible shattering of my self-esteem and the life-crumbling effects of drastic failure as I am reduced to a shell of my former self. (more likely, if we don't succeed, it will sit, unfinished, in the corner of the living room where most of you will get to see it when/if you come to visit us)
