If you have not Elfed yourself yet this year you need to hop over to JibJab and do it! And if you don’t want to do yourself try it out with your pets heads or just elf your friends. It is loads of fun.
My normal collecting mania is Star Trek, but lately I have been sticking to just getting LEGO stuff instead. Then of course Hasbro came out with the Kre-o Star Trek line and I had to have it all!
Look at all this cool stuff! (Some of which Target has on clearance…I almost wish I had waited. But maybe now I can get doubles of everything.)
I am an admitted brickoholic.
This past month has been a whirlwind of LEGO buying and building. Started with the LEGO store’s annual VIP event. Which is an invitation only event that I have been going to for the past 3 years now (guess because I buy so much from them…if only there was a way to get credit for all the sets I buy from Toys R Us and Target too). In the past we were given a discount at the register, so this year I had planned on buying the two big sets I have wanted for the past year but never got. So as November neared an end I never got my invite from LEGO. I gave the store a call and I was on their list so they told me when it was and to come on in they would have my invitation there for me. YEAH!
Afterwards I hopped online and joined the online forums for both PennLUG and DelVaLUG. Maybe I will start going to meetings and get to hang out with other AFOLs and learn a few tricks on building. Right now my attention is geared more toward LEGO trains. I have been setting up my 9 volt track under our tree for years and I want to expand it.
I bought my first remote controlled (power functions) train this month too and set it up under the tree at work. So I will have to find a way to work out the battery operated trains into my new train world. But I don’t know if you can do good old fashioned steam locomotives or if it is just new-fangled trains that are big enough to house all the power functions gadgets.
Also got a pretty cool book: The LEGO Adventure Book, Vol. 2: Spaceships, Pirates, Dragons & More! Now I need to make me a TRAGON. That’s a train dragon.
But wait the LEGO purchasing madness does not stop there. LEGO.com had a great black friday sale so I scooped up a bunch a storage boxes, a 2014 calendar, and a few sets. They should be arriving soon.
Yesterday, Target.com had a sale on LEGO sets so I grabbed a few there too. Now to find room for all of them and time to build them all!
I have been soup nazi-ed by Mimoco. It started out because I asked for the difference from the sale price I paid on Friday for the advertised sale price on Monday, which was a thirteen dollar difference in the item I was getting. They refused to give me the price difference and quoting some little [...]
Luvocracy.com is a Pinterest-like shopping site that’s not all cracked up to be what it sells itself as. At first look at the site I cannot even figure out why anyone would shop there. The Pinterest-like layout is confusing and really only works if you aren’t really even shopping. So why not just stick with [...]
Elysium: Entertainment or Pure Propaganda? (via http://worldnewscurator.com) Hollywood is often accused of being part of a ‘liberal media elite’, using its considerable power to promote a liberal political agenda.
