Anyway, don't tell Malorie but my only reason for wanting a child is that I'll finaly have a good excuse to buy Lego toys!! ;)
We were discussing Lego at work today under the subject of, "toys you expected your friends to have when you went round their house". Lego was universially agreed as the one toy you could definitely expect to see.

We also found out a lot of us had this set, "Black Monarch's Castle":

I think my bro had the White Monarch castle.
I had the Robin Hood tree and the medieval inn.
So cool!

I'm sure we can cyberstalk her fairly easily, she isn't that well known.
Dude, I still plan on attending more cons. I don't want to be put on the SA guys' blacklist!
I'll get her to send it to me, one way or the other.

Well, just tell her you'll be there for the NY Con again next year. She can start packing her bag the very minute you let her know that. :D

I had the Robin Hood hideout with the hidden rock doorway and opening back thing too!

I saw on Facebook that you have a Star Wars X-Wing? I thought you didn't like Star Wars?
Looking up all this Lego shit, I feel pretty eger to get the Lego-Technic Off Roader thing. Looks awesome. Lego = awesome moving puzzles. The thing costs quite a bit though, but looking at general Lego prices, jeez, Lego can be pricey shit!

The Lego Millenium Falcon is SO fucking amazing, BTW. The biggest Lego piece there is and it does cost €500, but shit, it rocks. If I inherit way too much money one day, that'll be on my list!

Hell yes!!! It's huge.
Also, Stocky,when did you hear me say I don't like Star Wars? I'm not a fan of the prequels but I'll watch the original movies any time you want.

I think I've got you and Cam mixed up. Cam never said he doesn't like them though, he just hasn't seen them.

Who bought the Lego X-Wing for you?

Have you ever seen the Lego myth on youtube? Well, I hadn't and still haven't, but this is a clip from Mythbusters busting the plausibility of the myth.

Major Lego construction! Slightly dissapointing outcome though for two weeks work of construction...

Got back yesterday from a week holidays in Italy, Florence to be precise. Saw all kinds of pieces of art (paintings, statues...) from the Ninja Turtles.

Tomorrow, leaving early to drive all the way to the Atlantic ocean front and spend a week of camping there, doing nothing but laying on the beach.

Life is hard.

My winning charm, awesome smile, and ability to jump ques.


My comic guy in Montreal is having a convention this weekend. He invited me out with him after the con days, he is having dinner with the Allred, and probably the others as well. Hopefully including Cooke and Lou Ferrigno.
