For shame17 December, 2010
Other people hide their unfinished projects in sheds, or make lists, or purchase Round Tuits. We have the Shelf of Shame.
The rule, according to Charlie, is simple: if you have acquired any materials or tools for a project but not finished it within a reasonable timeframe, that project goes on the Shelf of Shame.
I have a lot of stuff that falls into this category, including:
- a jar full of seaglass and some LEDs
- a half-translated rain detector
- some charcoal and some varnish
- a lot of red wool
- a collection of maps
- an unmodified t-shirt
There’s just one problem with the Shelf of Shame. We’ve not got around to building it yet, and so the whole thing is liable to collapse in on itself into a black hole of recursive hopelessness.
