"a friendly kick in the ass if appropriate."

Hmm, can I order one of those?

Oh, wow. I would have assumed you can't have too much padding, since more would cut down on your echo and background noise more and more.

Ok, maybe I'll try taking a few of them out. My problem was that when I had less padding, I got a bit of an echo when I talked into it.

This may sound crazy, but here's what I've been considering for a more long-term solution: a shower is really a wonderful size for a recording booth. My idea was to buy some foamcore (four pieces) about 4 feet tall, by about 2 feet wide or so. Maybe another smaller one one as a lid, too. Glue some foam to them (just like in the video that was posted earlier). Then you could lean each one against the walls in a shower with the foam facing in, and just sit in the center. It's portable - I can store it when I'm not using it.

Am I stepping into the bounds of crazyness? In theory it could work - I can move my laptop down there when I record, and it's a nice solid space to work in.

Thoughts?

Not crazy at all. In fact, I've seen this done before...a shower turned into a vocal booth.
