(LJ is being really slow and weird!  Here's the second try at this post...)

I picked up my roombox(es) yesterday!  They were custom built to my specifications, yay.  It's one unit with two rooms, one above for the captain's cabin, and one below for the surgeon's dispensary/sick bay.  The back panel for the captain's cabin isn't attached, so I can adapt it and add windows later (when I figure out how exactly I want to do that.)

I haven't even started doing anything to them.  I think I'm going to stain the outside, so it will look like an apothecary chest, and put a brass handle on top for carrying.  But I'm so excited and ADD about it that I'm paralyzed with the inability to start!!!

Here are pictures.  The Plexi covering-film hasn't been peeled off yet.  I'll wait till after painting and all.




Any time I put something on the floor, the cats get curious.  This one is Gianni.




Nemo investigates.  "Can I get in there?"




The poppets also investigate.  I never planned for this to be a space for them to live in, but who knows?  They are about the right size, after all, especially when fixed to their little stands.  I just wanted to see how the room would look with someone "life sized" in it.  I think it looks duly claustrophobic. :D

You only have to put a shoe on the floor for a cat to become interested. *g*

It's the poppets using their influence on you! They've been planning this all along so they can have homes, I tell you.

I know! It's Stephen's wig magic, I'm sure of it! His wig has supernatural powers!!!

My cat Gianni has two favorite things to do with new objects - sit on them if they're flat, or knock them over if they're tall. If I drop a piece of mail on the floor, he'll sit on it. Likewise, anything that's NOT on the floor belongs there, so he'll knock it off whatever table or furniture it's sitting on.

*ahem*

Phoebe just tends to sit on it or in it. If it's flat or tall, she'll sit on it (even if it means jumping), or in it if it's a box. She recently tried to wriggle into the 6"x8"x10" cardboard box we keep the computer wires in, until she got stuck halfway and decided to give up.

My apologies; I don't know what I'm on tonight. Just sick and very tired, perhaps.

You must be drinking what snakey and I had last night. Or maybe silly obnoxicity is going around. It is quite contagious, after all.

Just the right size for the poppets. It's certainly as [livejournal.com profile] latin_cat says, you are under their influence, and they had planned this all along.

For some reason I imagined them smaller. O_o Although if the poppets are to live in there, it only makes sense they should be that size.

*imagines the poppets running around your appartment at night, whispering stuff in your ears*

Smaller!!! Most people imagined them bigger. They're only 5 inches tall - 6 when attached to their stands.

I think they really must do that, run around at night whispering. O_O

Or did you mean the roomboxes? Well, they're pretty small already, but they're made to be standard 1 inch = 1 foot dollhouse scale (for a small room.)

I have been coming out with terrible Aubreyesque puns over at [livejournal.com profile] anything_aos. And now the Gilly isn't speaking to me. I hope she's just gone to bed, and isn't ignoring me.

I don't mean to be obnoxious, and I really do think your roomboxes are going to be AWESOME!

And I've NEVER had so many comments in one post in my LJ. I did set out to spam Tootsie's, but it's not so much fun on your own...

I had an Aubreyesque pun about the slush, if there was just fat "lyeing" around.

(I don't really think you're being obnoxious. :D )

(LJ is though! erg.)

Puns are fun. Even if Stephen doesn't seem to agree...

(Thanks. :D)

Can't wait to see your progress . . . assuming the cats don't decide to move in.

At least your cats aren't scared of new things. Mine is scared of everything and the dog things everything is for him. E V E R Y T H I N G.
The roomboxes look great! Good Luck!

Well Nemo (the one with his head in the box) is sometimes a bit nervous, but Gianni always assumes that everything is for him to sit on or play with.

Thanks! :D

Gianni appears to have some serious questions about this.

I'm sure he has questions. I doubt they're serious, though. He's rarely serious.
