Out of the blue, the weather changed on me. It was cloudy, yes, but I didn't expect this a mere hour ago.

So without an umbrella, and no lost-and-found box in this building to raid, it became apparent that I would be sleeping here, rather than making a 6-minute dash through the rain.

I will need a pillow. Yes...

I found these paper towels. They are quite dirty. I care not.

Stapler. Full clip.

Unroll some paper towels. You'll need about this much unless you want a disproportionately long pillow. Yes, that's good.


silly_lab_sleeping_04.jpg
Rip.

Fold roughly in half.

STAPLE STAPLE STAPLE STAPLE.

Staples in pillows suck. Therefore turn the stapled towel loop you have inside-out. This picture depicts the process half-way.

Completely inside out. Check out that edge. So smooth. I'm getting tired already!

Now kind of fold one of the open ends into itself.

Staples in pillows still suck. therefore you must staple it from the inside.

It was at this point that I realized the stapler was in the wrong mode. Rather than the prongs pointing inward upon stapling, they pointed outward and fell out easily. This made me mad that some baffoon switched the stapler on me.

Fixed.

I AM A ROBOT. BEEP BEEP (I am getting tired).

I don't remember what this picture is trying to show. But pay close attention anyway!

Now that 3 sides are closed, it's time to stuff your pillow.

Get a lot of paper towel stuffing.


silly_lab_sleeping_17.jpg
Stuff.


silly_lab_sleeping_18.jpg
Remember to staple it shut from the inside. Somehow.


silly_lab_sleeping_19.jpg
Bleh. Screw that.

Hooray, you're done! (An eerie reminder of airplane pillows)

It was at this point that I was informed via Instant Messaging(TM) that there's a couch upstairs.

Decorative pillow! Now I can't really justify creating the pillow. So I will have to do some redefining.

silly_lab_sleeping_25.jpg
You will need one of these.

silly_lab_sleeping_26.jpg
Justification complete.

Goodnight.
