Now let’s be honest, there hasn’t really been much progress at all. The frenetic pace that comes as the end of the academic year looms into sight has rather scuppered my plans to resurrect ‘Bouncing Boy’ from ‘forgotten’ to ‘occasionally talked about’. The irony of this sad tale is that I chose this character because I thought that it would be simple and quick to do!
There has been some movement and I have collected, what I hope will be, the composite parts required to finish the job. Included in these are a selection of spherical objects to form the main body. The beads, my first choice, are clearly too small and the ping pong ball feels a little big, but I think that I am going to go with it anyway, if for no other reason than comedy value; my only concern with this choice is that I have a nagging thought that ping pong balls don’t react well to superglue? I will let you know!
To further compound the ignominy of my current project there has been some truly wonderful progress made by my fellow contributors, which has all been documented on the official site and I would encourage to stop wasting time reading this drivel and go and see what should be happening! Hopefully, once I have ticked off a few chores this morning, there might be a little more to show later in the week.
