Got a good chunk done yesterday. Discovered something that was originally a mistake, but turned out to be a blessing.

The difficulty in taking something that is "real" and having to modify it for the practical purposes of not only fitting into a limited space, but being able to withstand the traffic of thousands of people walking through it over the course of a weekend is not a small thing; combine that with the need for it to be assembled on-site with very limited tools and it's an interesting set of problems to deal with.
Since it's being constructed in my living room, it also has to be created in such a way that it can be taken out the front door. The good bit is that also forces it to be able to fit through doorways in the hotel, so that is a bonus.

Last night was the first of the gluing, primarily because I had a number of pieces cut out and I needed the space to continue building. With these pieces assembled, I can move then to the staging area (AKA dining room).

Tonight the fun continues. If you're interested in helping, I could use some people who can read paper plans, measure, and make straight cuts.

I expected to see you in a 'sploder yesterday.

I have a garage full of foam if you're still interested.

Hey I am working on a sign for the RakeHell party Room and need some foam board. I am thinking the blue or pink 3/4" insulating foam board. I need (2) 24" x 36" pieces if you have anything like that.

TIA!

Right now, it's promised to Rob and I don't know what he needs and what he doesn't. It would probably be easier to work it out with him directly.

I was at your house in the morning, called, rang the bell and all.

Yes, I'm still all foamy.

This was the same house in which the Prom Booth was made-- did I get the wrong house?

And could I come by tonight and pick it up?

Well, then it's clearly my bad.

Yes, same house.

I was home and though I was sick and in bed during those hours, I had believed that I was sentient enough to hear the bell, or the phone or something.

Many, many apologies. Your number is the same area code as mine and then too oh won?

Tonight will be fine. What time do you want?
