ITALO CALVINO, The Literature Machine JanieBelle August 11, 2007 at 6:18 pm That is a picture of Max, gone to the patent office. max August 11, 2007 at 6:35 pm I should have titled this “Waiting for AJ.” Anita Marie August 11, 2007 at 6:56 pm I would have called it ” Where the heck are the Diet Coke Cans? ” amm max August 11, 2007 at 7:29 pm Um, in the trash where empty diet coke cans belong? Anita Marie August 11, 2007 at 7:40 pm Ahem. :-) Kitty August 11, 2007 at 8:37 pm Oh you stop that right now, that is just wrong wrong wrong. Showoff. max August 11, 2007 at 10:29 pm Hey it is not about the desk the desk always looks like that. It is about the wall board. The wall board AJ has been mocking me for not hanging? The wall board is up. [speaking of mocking though i should go roust pooks i have tormented pooks with my desk before] raincoaster August 11, 2007 at 10:40 pm *looks around her desk and considers straightening it up and reloading the page, then gives it up as futile* nothings August 11, 2007 at 10:47 pm That doesn’t look like a very comfortable chair, but maybe I am misreading it. max August 11, 2007 at 11:03 pm It actually is not all that comfortable, I have broken one of these too they are not really designed for hard time use and it lost all its stripping and stopped being adjustable — I just have not found the right chair yet so I got the same chair again till I do. Solnushka August 12, 2007 at 12:00 am Are you sure that’s a big enough wall board…? Doesn’t look very big to me… I think you need a bigger one… aj August 12, 2007 at 1:58 am Holy Shit! It’s about damn time too, Adams. Where did you get the toggles? Where did you get the drill? Should I even ask? Probably not considering the instructions I gave last time we spoke… aj August 12, 2007 at 1:59 am Your desk is still too clean to be healthy by the way. californiablogging August 12, 2007 at 2:06 am I hurt myself when I clean that much. That wall board is way cuter than my cork board. Where does a wall board come from? Kitty August 12, 2007 at 3:27 am Aha. It’s all about where she got the toggles and the drill. Should have know. Spill, Max. Where’d you get the stuff? [still trying to figure out the WD40 post…] max August 12, 2007 at 4:26 am Well, I skipped toggles and just used really solid screws and screwed it in by hand. [You can do that stuff by hand it is just harder. Oog.] The really hard part is measuring to put up the bolts. They go through the glass and have to be in exactly the right place and I cannot hold that glass up one handed while making exact marks and holding a level but I had an epiphany and made a paper copy and used that to measure and put the bolts in and that worked. Jen, that wallboard is from Ikea, there is a huge story behind AJ having one in Australia and me seeing photos of it thinking it was cool and wanting one and her trying to order me one in the Stripes for Christmas and Ikea not mail ordering that item so me being driven from my home to go get one at Ikea and then it sitting for months while AJ steamed I had not put it up yet…. max August 12, 2007 at 4:26 am [by the way I am awake because someone in the building pulled the fire alarm at 4 am, oog] max August 12, 2007 at 4:38 am [by the by the way : look how cute the giraffes are] californiablogging August 12, 2007 at 6:22 am Max! You are so damn funny! Pingback: two giraffes « celluloid blonde aj August 12, 2007 at 4:11 pm Oh my. You screwed it in by hand. Diet Cokes and Chocolate are in order. max August 12, 2007 at 7:03 pm Yes I was totally pioneer Max, no power tools required. sulya August 12, 2007 at 11:02 pm Man, the most bizarre home task I’ve ever done by hand was whip cream with a hand whisk. Not nearly so tough or so practical as bolts into concrete. And I’m pretty sure I was drunk at the time and my motives not nearly so noble… I tip my hat to you, in a deep and hearfelt bow. And your desk makes me want to cry. max August 12, 2007 at 11:25 pm Oh that is not the concrete wall, that is the drywall wall. The gray walls are concrete. The white walls are drywall. You cannot do concrete without a drill and mounts for the screws. Kitty August 13, 2007 at 4:26 am Oh now you are in trouble. All this time I thought the wall was concrete. Good enough excuse for waiting to hang the board. But drywall? You need Hercules Hooks. No tools required. max August 13, 2007 at 4:41 am No you do not. This wallboard has studs that afix to the wall and extend from the wall to go through pre-drilled holes in the glass extending the glass half an inch away from the wall and if those studs do not exactly match the pre-drilled holes in the glass you are fucked. Drilling the wall was not an issue, holding a thirty five pound slab of glass stationary and level to mark the wall and then mounting the studs exactly right and then mounting the glass on its studs and then sealing the studs, that was the issue. It only took me a week to mount a picture that just hung off a concrete wall and that required drilling the fucking wall and putting in eye mounts and then putting in hooks and that was easy compared to this. Anyone else who has a great big man around to take care of this stuff or is a great big man versed in this stuff want to give me grief on this issue?
