Here are some pictures I took while we were building it.
It took about a week+ to build and we working on it for hours every single day. We went to Home Depot so frequently for it that multiple people in the store began to remember us, constantly asking what we were back for this time.
It cost about $160 for all of the materials (not including the materials we already had at home at our disposal)
The front door opens as well as the bottom panel on the front door which is a cat door
The inside is lined with felt and has a shelf.
All of the side panels hook together to form a stable box, and then are able to be separated to allow the TARDIS to be stacked for easy transport. The roof also separates into two pieces.
So here is a photo for size comparison…I’m about 5’4”
I am SO building a TARDIS for my cats…
My Sister Paid Progressive Insurance to Defend Her Killer In Court
I’ve been sending out some impertinent tweets about Progressive Insurance lately, but I haven’t explained how they pissed me off. So I will do that here as succinctly as possible. There’s a general understanding that says, “insurance companies— oh they’re awful,” but since Progressive turned their shit hose on my late sister and my parents, I’ve learned some things that really surprised me.
I’ll try to cleave to the facts. On June 19, 2010, my sister was driving in Baltimore when her car was struck by another car and she was killed. The other driver had run a red light and hit my sister as she crossed the intersection on the green light.
This is appalling. Please read the entire thing (it’ll just take a minute) and tell your friends.
Let’s get enough attention focused on this to force Progressive Insurance to do the right thing for Matt and his family.
And if you’re shopping for auto insurance, don’t give your money to this morally bankrupt company.
Do not hesitate. Go to this link.
Then gaze at the book titles, and marvel.
(I don’t actually think I need to read any of them. It just makes me happy knowing they exist.)
Edited even later to add, and yes, I have three of these books.
My friend called me a fecal wizard as an insult the other day, but I thought it would be a really fantastic mutant power, and I haven’t been able to shut up about how cool it would be, and now he regrets ever saying the words “fecal wizard”, so I win.
That redacted panel is where you get to use your imagination about what happens. The black box is where all the fanfiction happens. (Oh, god, let there be fanfiction of this.)
this is amazing
