Making my bed...

lying in it and doing other things....

So, I haven't had a proper bed in a long time. I think it was probably my sophmore year in college when I gave up having a "bed" and just came up with different ways to deal with my mattress. For a long while bed = loft and that worked quite nicely in my dorm rooms. Once I got a house, making a loft seemed a bit... pointless (after all, I had an entire house), but actually buying a bed when I actually liked having my mattress/box spring on the floor seemed like a silly waste of $$.

FF a few years and I'v now moved to my current place and discovered that through a quirk of geometry, it was physically impossible to get a queen size box spring onto the 2nd floor. Hmmm... So I am now using a mattress on the floor. Given my tendancy to just dive into bed and to toss and turn a lot this is actually not a bad thing. Lately though, I've been having an urge to have a real bed again. Not some cheesy Wal-Mart thing, I mean a real solid, heavy, metal, bed. The kind of bed that costs $2,000+ and weighs as much as a small car. The kind of bed there is no way on Earth I could or would buy right now (if ever).

So sad.

but wait....

I have access to a welding rig (and assorted supplies). I know how to use said welding rig. Hmmmm.... This could be interesting.

Considering the fact that in the past 15 years or so I've maybe made my bed a dozen times, I find it highly amusing (in a silly sort of way) that I would seriously consider making my bed now and on this scale ;).

Last night I started drawing up plans for the headboard/footboard. I've also been pondering how to actually make the supporting parts of it. Ideally I'd like it to be comfy, but still very solid... I think I'm getting somewhere interesting with the overall design. Assuming I am happy with the results, I'll post them here at some point....

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
