SOLUTIONS

After spending the last couple of days frantically working on the box for the Box Show (it's done and turned in and I will post pictures after I see it hung and in the gallery) I can officially barely move.  Seriously, it's official now... not capable of movement.  There's even a sign and everything.  It's taped to my forehead and is says "NO MOVEMENT, PLEASE DO NOT MOVE".  I need to come up with a better system for doing crafts, because sitting at a table or on the floor, hunched over for hours at a time is not doing good for me.  Any suggestions?



A couple of days ago I did something that I often do, and I continue to amaze myself with.  I can problem solve just about anything.  So J ran out of gas, wait... in-fact, now that I'm thinking about it, J's been having a lot of car problems lately, the transmission hasn't been working correctly (at least we think it's the transmission) he got his car towed a few days ago, then he ran out of gas, then yesterday, he got in a fender bender while driving MY car...  (fortunately no big deal, though it did freak me out some)... ANYWAY, back to my story, J ran out of gas, right in front of my work, and promptly took my car to go get a gallon.  When he got back and tried to start filling however, he dropped the filler thing into the bottom of the gallon of gas, and sat there unable to fill his tank, considering going back to the gas station and buying another gallon.  I came up with a better solution, with a pen, a water bottle, and some tape.   


The Contraption...

I want someone to come up with a game show where the contestants have to solve a problem in a room full of office supplies, or a fabric store, or a basic kitchen, or something like that.  I would kick BUTT at that.

Ghetto... ghetto-licious. Oh God, I've been watching too much Project Runway. Still, props for coming up with such a workable solution in a pinch. And I'd TOTALLY go on your game show.
