You guys know Murphy's Law, right?
"If anything can go wrong, it will"
That pretty much sums up not only my life, but my whole family's.
except my name ain't Murphy, it's Mutter
My family calls it the "Mutter Curse"
It affects everyone in my family
It even affects friends too.
My wife says it rubs off on you.
Nothing ever works right & nevr comes easy for us.
Normally we just accept these things as part of "the curse" & just perservere
But recently, it's starting to get to me.
let me give you a little insight, some "examples" if you will
The past few weeks have been a real pain.
Every recent project or prop has had issues
over the last 2 weeks or so;
1. Boba Knees
Sculpting them was a hassle, had to do it at least 3 times. The molds didn't go right either and had to be redone. The darts still aren't ready either.
I mixed some material & it got all over a bench & the floor
I mailed one set over 2 weeks ago USPS Priority & they are lost somewhere.
I tried painting a set today to see how the paint held- i dropped it paint side down of course
that one is wrecked
2. Girth belt Dying.
The Cross-stitching wasn't the same material so it didn't dye well.It's a different color.
While dying them in the kitchen, I dropped the pan & dyed the grout on my countertop & Brand new floor red. It's pretty, but not what mrs.slave1pilot likes.
3. EPIII Clone helmet
Tried cutting out the T-visor from a face sheild, snapped it in half & made another.
I tried to CA that visor in by tacking it cause I couldn't find my glue gun.ended up with glue on the lens & made another
I blistered my fingers trying to hot glue that visor in & made another
Finally got that in
I got paint where it didn't belong when i removed the masking tape from the helmet.
Tried to touch it up & made it worse.
4. EPIII Clone armor
I couldn't get a decent pull on the ab pieces & had to have help.
I trimmed some parts wrong & had to fix those.
This project is way behind schedule
I know there is more, but it happens so much it just slips my mind
I have a jet pack to paint, knees to paint, a Sandtrooper and Clone armor to assemble,and a set of Shin tools to create from real parts.
Frankly, i'm scared to touch anything important.
I'm in a slump & it's bumming me out
Poor me poor me
anyone else have one of those days that turns into weeks or months or years?
