So I told myself it would be a good idea to put a bunch of play pit balls in my room just to liven things up a bit. Now realizing it would be a bad idea (since those balls would be plastic and close to my heater), I have chosen to now blog about it instead. What’s so great about a ball pit, besides the fact that it’s awesome? Well, it doesn’t make sense to a lot of people, and I’ve always thrived in environments where things don’t make a lot of sense to a lot of people.
I’m a nerd, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to you. A ball pit in my room would be a fantastic reference to xkcd, as well as a great way to freak “normal” people out. Of course the heater thing is an issue, but so is the door that I use to get into my room (something I actually already thought about, haha). So if I want to do this right, I’m going to have to buy some dividers of some sort to keep the balls from places they’re not supposed to be.
Of course I might do what the xkcd folks did and just make a pit instead of filling my entire room. I haven’t quite decided yet. Should I go for area? Or what about depth? And yes, I still need to make sure these things aren’t fire or sanitary hazards. It’ll take some planning, but it could be really cool so I’ll let you know if it ever happens.
In other news, I’m not working today on account of getting two cavities filled at the dentist. To be honest it’s really nice being able to remove myself from work and just enjoy life. I forgot what that felt like, to be honest. :( Really, I’m not good at taking vacation. I actually do miss work a bit, though not because of what I have to do during the day. I miss having the sheer amount of power a company has to do something. I’m only a person and it takes me too long to learn and iterate and reap the rewards of my labor. It would be really nice to design something super cool.
