BABAROP: Look Out, Baby!


The missus ordered a roll of butcher paper to cover our dining room table when it's school time for my daughters. It's 30 inches wide by 900 feet long. It's a BABAROP*

I'm not sure how many NaNoWriMo drafts that works out to be. Included in the photo above is a Hermes Baby, for scale. I'm genuinely scared for the Baby's future. A piano suspended overhead would be less menacing.

This might be just the thing for anyone with one of those super-long-carriaged accounting machines. How many lines per day would meet your quota? "I typed two and a half yards today."

More to the point: do you think I can convince her to order another?

* Big-Ass Big-Ass Roll Of Paper

That I have absolutely no rational use for such a thing, but I can totally understand the envy.

Got a pal with a band saw who could cut you a slice?

Mine is 340m long and 15cm wide.
(But Rob's idea is pretty good too ;))

In our teacher mailroom we have racks of this kind of paper. The rolls are heavy. Very heavy.

Holy $#^†!

It *is* quite heavy. We're using it to cover the dining room table when the girls are doing their schoolwork, and then when it gets too overcome with scribbles and doodles, we cut a fresh sheet and recycle the old.

They come in taller rolls, too.
