Random stuff

Here's a random shot of Don in the snow. I took a pic of him in the freezer a while back, but I think I like this one more. The vegetation almost looks like it's to scale.

Here I am relaxing on the couch with Kirby the Wondermutt. One of these days, I need to dedicate a post to him. He's absolutely the best dog I've ever had.

Jell-O shot "watermelons". Chelsea made these when we went on vacation with some friends of ours. I'm not sure how she did it, but it must have involved magic.

Ah yes, Bob's trying to figure out how he's going to fit my new knife in his pocket. The joke's on him, he doesn't have pockets.

This weekend we're going on a little excursion, so I'm hoping to have lots of photos to share when we get home. Stay tuned..

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Day 23

The end is in sight! Just two more doors, and yet another advent calendar will be completed. I'm at the point now, I can no longer be disappointed in anything that Lego throws at us. I think the past few days have been the low point, so the only way we can go is up. Let's see if I'm right, shall we?

Wow, can I call it or what? Yesterday's prediction was spot on; it's an astromech snowman. I love how the details look a little washed out, like it's actually made out of snow. I'm not sure if you can tell, but those are two lumps of coal for its eyes, and two carrots for its...mouth? Plus, look at that little top hat! This one more than makes up for the last few models. It's almost as if Lego knew the crappy scaled shuttles were going to be a disappointment, and they knew we would need something to bring us out of our funk. Consider this droid to be the spirits to my inner Scrooge.

Oh no! Watch out little droid! It looks like not even you could bring back the holiday spirit in Bob the Zombie! 

Wait, those aren't zombie bites, those are zombie hugs. It's a Christmas miracle! Come back tomorrow when we finally open the last box, and finish up what has been a tumultuous 24 days.

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Day 22

I'm still here, I promise! I'm just recovering from being awake for 40 continuous hours. Nothing like being up for close to two days straight to make you realize that you're not young anymore. Anyhow, I managed to put together another advent calendar post for you all. I'm keeping my fingers crossed yet again. Maybe I'll know what it is.

Son of a...I had to look this one up as well. It's hard to tell, but this is supposed to be Darth Maul's ship, Scimitar. I'll give you a second to go look it up for yourself..Find it? Again, another ship whose proportions do not work well with the mini scale. Of course, this means that we have just two more kits left for this month, and thanks to the box, we already know one of them will be Darth Maul. Scouring the box for clues, I have a feeling one of the last two will be an astromech droid. I could be way off, though.

Darth Maul's ship gives the Imperial forces a 11-9 advantage over the Rebels. I'm not sure where Gonk's allegiance lies, and the last one is just a rack full of weapons, so no advantage there. Bob's been abused by both sides, so he'll likely just stand there and watch whatever happens. Will the spirit of the holidays overwhelm the urge to blow each other up? Stay tuned..

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Day 14

Two whole weeks. I've been going at this for two whole weeks now. I feel like I've actually achieved something, though perhaps I should save those feelings for when I actually finish it up. Yesterday's model was a bit odd, so I'm rather curious to see what today will bring.

Ah..a weapon rack. I feel like we got the same thing last year as well. Still, we needed some blasters for our Rebel and Imperial soldiers. As for the lightsaber, I guess I can trust the Gungan with that one. I just hope they're all able to get along once they're armed..

I'm not sure if Bob's being taken hostage, or if he's just trying to calm everyone down. Either way, I hope he's careful.. It looks like Gonk is getting in on the hostile holiday festivities too..

Gonk  gonk boom, baby.

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Day 12

So if you happened to see my post last night, just disregard it. Sometimes the stress of the season can be a bit too much, and we say rash things. This is pretty much my only hobby right now, and the thought of quitting it actually made me a bit sad. I'm here now, and ready to see what's behind door number 12.

Ah! I knew it. We finally have a Rebel soldier to go along with what must be a laser cannon from yesterday.

For a Lego figure, this guy has quite the luxurious mustache. He also looks rather perturbed that someone has stolen his laser cannon.

Looks like he got back his favorite weapon, and has a new prisoner as well. The tide is already turning..

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Day 10

Looks like I'm a little late posting today, sorry about that. Yesterday we got an Imperial Commander, so I have a good feeling about today..

Yep, just what I thought. Can't have a commander without something to command from. I'm really digging these mini-models. They might not have much in the way of detail, but that doesn't mean they're any less cool.

I think this makes four Imperial vehicles now. The Rebels were pretty much outmatched when I opened the Star Destroyer. Now things are just looking hopeless for them. We do still have two weeks left, so the tide of the battle may change before then.

Of course, with an ally like Bob on the Imperial side, the Rebels might not need anymore help..

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Day 9

We're just chugging right along now aren't we? It's hard to believe that there are just over two weeks left before Christmas. Before we know it, New Year's Eve will be knocking over the punch bowl. Until then, we have an Advent Calendar to get through. So let's open up flap number 9.

Oh boy, an Imperial Commander. These guys are almost always found near an AT-AT, and they always bring trouble. I don't doubt this guy is any different.

I didn't realize it at first, but this little guy has a neat little action figure. Here he has his perturbed face on. But, all it takes is one second and...

Now he has his "Let's go blow some Rebels up" face on. He kind of reminds me of the Terminator, with that expressionless face, and the large, black goggles. Now he just needs somebody to command.

Dead or not, we're going to whip you into shape!

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Day 8

I'm feeling a bit under the weather today, so this will probably be the only post until tomorrow morning. With that said, let's look behind flap number 8.

I do believe that is a Droid fighter, so named because it is a droid that is a star fighter. Now I have something for my Naboo fighter to go up against.

The more I look at it, the more I think it looks like the top half of some murderous hugging machine. All he would need is a set of legs, and the hugging can commence.

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Day 7

A whole week of posts, this is definitely some kind of record for me. Hopefully I can keep this up for another 17 days. So, let's see what I get to build today.

Yes, another ship that I recognize. This is the Naboo Starfighter, and it's actually a pretty cool spacecraft. Not X-Wing cool, but still not bad.

If I have one complaint about the mini-scale ships, it's that they tend to be a bit "twisty". Many of the mini ships tend to have a fuselage one block wide, so you have to straighten out the body every now and then. Otherwise, it's a neat model and one that I didn't already have.

Special effects ya'll.

Sadly, the Rebels don't seem to be zombie fans at all. That's okay though, Bob needed the exercise.

Stay tuned, because later today I'll be posting another Fun Food Friday. This time around, it's a good one.

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Day 5

Another day, another LEGO set. So far, 3/4 of the sets have been inspired by the Star Wars prequels, specifically The Phantom Menace. It seems odd they would stick with one movie, since the last Star Wars Advent covered the entire original trilogy. Maybe today will bring us something new. Let's find out.

And...I have no clue what this is supposed to be. I'm assuming it's a ship of some sort, but it also looks like it could be part of something else. Previous calendars have had certain models that were assembled over the course of two days, so maybe that's what we have here. Either way, I'm not the only one that's confused.

I know what this is,  this is an espresso machine. No, no wait. It's a snow cone maker. Is it a water heater?*
Looks like I'll have to do a little searching around to figure out this one. Until then, I think Bob's decided on what he thinks it is.

It's a choo choo!

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Day 4

Another day, another LEGO model. I'm thinking we're done with the Gungans now, so I'm kind of excited to see what's behind flap number 4.

Ooh..finally something really cool. To me, the Star Destroyer is just as iconic as the Death Star or the      AT-AT. It's one of the first ships we at the beginning of the original trilogy, and it just oozes menace. Let's see what the finished model looks like.

Not bad at all for the scale. I has the color and the shape, even if it doesn't have a lot of detail. I have to wonder though, where is Bob?

Ah..there he is. I guess he's still a little leary after being knocked out by a Gungan. Well, that's it for today, so until next time, play safe!

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Day 3

Today is day three of our 24 day adventure. Let's find out what's behind flap numero three.

Ooh..whatever it is seems pretty dangerous. Anything that can put out an eye must be fun right?

It seems to a Gungan snot launcher. They used these to great effectiveness against the droid army in The Phantom Mena...Actually they were pretty useless.

I'm not sure how well it works against zombies, but it looks like the little Gungan is about to find out.

Ouch..looks like he scored a direct hit. I guess that means he definitely isn't Jar Jar then. Jar Jar would have been zombie food for sure.

It looks like Bob may have underestimated the little Gungan. Well, it's probably best that we leave him alone. I imagine he'll have a headache for weeks after that hit. Until tomorrow, play safe.

Grocery shopping...

Bob is a stingy zombie, and rarely shares his food. That's fine really, I've never been fond of brains.

It would be nice if he at least offered though.
