The last post was maybe subtitled “Now what the heck am I gonna do with these things”.
I continued on down the road I was thinking, added some more here and there, and put it all together, yes, including those partial seams I mentioned to get around the center block. But I didn’t follow through on the ‘measure twice cut once’ corollary: ‘do the math correctly’. Let’s review:
- Do I have a masters degree in a math-related field? yes.
- Do I own a calculator? yes
- Is it in a handy place next to my scissors? yes
- Can I do the math in my head or with a pencil? usually
- Did I do the math correctly with a pencil or calculator this time? NOPE
- Did I think of using the calculator and then change my mind? yup
Here is a picture of the finished top. It’s small. I like how it turned out, colorful and architectural. I made my math correction relatively easily. See if you can find it.
Do you see it now? I think it works with the whole modern architectural design concept thingy, don’t you?
Now a brief word about drinking coffee at the computer… a couple of weeks ago I was doing just that, started to choke and cough. I did the thing you see in sitcoms, I sprayed the coffee in fine droplets everywhere in front of me! Wallpaper, desk, computer and all other small electronics, files, books, glasses, you name it. I cleaned up quickly with a handy towel. But now, 2 weeks later, fine dust and the dreaded yellow pine pollen has stuck to my computer screen in the smeers I made with the towel. What do I clean this screen with???
And another thing, I shouldn’t be writing this while I am sleep-deprived! I’m sick of fixing my typos.
