i've been stuck in a toy box

it's been awhile and i don't really have an excuse. not much has been going on, except for the awesomeness at the end of this entry. welcome back!

as a kid i had a small box of legos, just enough to build a house with half a roof. legos were a tad pricey and i spent most of my time glued to my game boy. there weren't nearly as many kits as there are today, i think pirate ship and robin hood were about it. my best friend had robin hoods castle, i played at her house a lot. i'm super jealous of kids today as the massive options for legos, but silently laughing b/c there's no way my mom can say no when i just have to have some. (ok, i laugh out loud)

if you read my first house guest entry, you know that i have a little thing for legos. if you haven't read it, go have a look b/c lego land is awesome! also, there's me with lego luke sykwalker --->

the last year has been all about the legos for me. first there was the to scale star wars x-wing in ny.

for my birthday last year my boss gave me the millenium falcon to keep me busy. it did, for about 5 hours.

this was followed by the afore mentioned trip to lego land and the purchase of the delorean.

as if that wasn't enough, on june 1st lego released the ecto-1 in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the epically awesome ghostbusters. i actually lined up prior to the store opening to get this, i didn't even do that for my iphones.
