Nordic Torture...

... well, today's the day... my brand new Iron Maiden piece of exercise equipment should be here around lunchtime... and then the fun will really begin.. I have to tell you, putting the beast together is not something I am looking forward to...

.... still, it will be interesting to attempt the construction, I suppose.... I'm always up for new challenges... but my brain is not a logical one, and the idea of following a complex diagram all afternoon seems completely absurd... see, I am prone to flights of fancy and it's not good... even as a child playing with my Lincoln Logs my buildings resembled abstract, Dali-esque cattle pens more than they did the quaint cabins on the box lid.... it'll be a miracle if the thing works once I'm finished... it has about 63 pulleys... yes, PULLEYS... the machine will probably end up resembling some sort of hideously malformed radioactive Go-Bot... but I'm still going to give it a shot...

... with any luck, though, the contraption will be finished by the evening and ready for clothing to be hung on it... I really, really need to get in shape, but somehow I think just putting the thing together will leave me worn out, sweaty, and out of breath.... the closest I come to having an engineering mind is being able to create a kickass spaghetti sauce with 101 ingredients.... but pulleys, people... can you imagine?... this is going to be a nightmare....

It's a nightmare clotheshanger, but damn... it's got FREEMOTION Technology! That'll be sweet...

Most of those contraptions are simple and can be put together by a five years old boy--providing of course that the lad has a degree and considerable experience as a mechanical engineer.

And, when all else fails pull out the directions and get a bigger hammer.

I don't envy you this task. Last time I had to put something together (that I was dreading) it was a swing set. I still have nightmares....

It's a big puzzle!!! I think it sounds like fun! And the bonus is, you don't need a heat transfer book. Really. It's a bonus. ;-)
