Bathroom Renovation Ramp-up
Bec and I have been talking about remodeling our bathroom since before I moved in last June. The sullen economy coupled with my desire to break from storyboarding has made this winter a perfect time to dig in and redo our commode. To put both of our minds at ease about the project, I want to plan and anticpate the numbers and choices as best I can before crowbar hits sheetrock. I found a 3D interior program to help visualize all the changes so there will be fewer surprises with regards to shapes and colors. Unfortunately though, learning this program involves a great deal of exploratory tinkering, and said tinkering really brings out my obsessive side, which is kind of a skinny Hulk with whom I don't enjoy mingling. My eyes going green and shirt tattering around my cerebral biceps while I tried to fabricate a tile texture for the model, Bec saw me freefalling down the rabbit hole and effectively grabbed me by the collar and lifted me back to the safety of our living room and leftover clam chowder, which turned out to be just as delicious as its first pass. After dinner it was easy to see that the texture I was breaking myself trying to make is hardly necessary, so we watched an episode of The Wire. It was possibly the best one I've seen.
