Gray Alien Hat

I'm bummed

I've been working on a surprise for the Potlatch hospitality suite for the last week, but it is looking like I won't be able to get it finished in time.

There are lots of reasons for this: I've been working extra hours at my day job and haven't had enough time in the evenings. I should have started it two weeks ago instead of one. And so on...

None of that is an excuse though. This is something that I've wanted to do since the last time Potlatch was in Seattle, and it really burns me up that I can't deliver. I even thought about trying to finish it at the con (I'm sure lots of people would be interested in the process), but what I am doing will create a small amount of fumes and smells and I know a lot of Potlatch members who have multiple allergies. Besides the fact screwing with it at the con will mean missing other things I would rather be doing.

So, I'm bummed...

It is really cool too! You should be bummed as well.
