Battleship in a Bottle

I call this: random — Posted by KP @ 3:45 am

This has nothing to do with anything, but I just have to share what I spent my evening doing:

I had been looking for some kind of hands-on project for a while, even considered the idea of building something geeky in a bottle, and had given up. Then today, while looking at all the stuff on my shelves and categorizing the things I don’t need, my eyes rested on the less organized part of my shrine to the ’80s (yes, I have one, and yes, it includes a Voltron), where I realized I owned a Battleship set. I didn’t even remember buying it (it’s not the one from my childhood — thanks, mom!). Suddenly what needed to go in the bottle became clear.

And thus, I put on seven episodes of West Wing, and this came out the other end.

Really, I am doing a reading in 2 weeks, and I have two jobs in April. In the meantime, I am literally whittling.
