Dear Santa,
About this creation


Dear Santa,

Feeling wholesome Christmas bliss,
Endeavoring to write my list.
Got my paper, got my pen,
Let me try this thing again.

Santa, you’re the coolest dude,
And I’m not meaning to be rude,
But last year’s gifts left me dejected –
The stuff I got wasn’t expected!





I got seven fuzzy sweaters,
And this thing that opens letters,
I received a fountain pen,
And a box of Just for Men,





Three self-help books from the mall,
Sample cheeses big and small,
A pocketknife and two canteens,
Some exotic coffee beans,





Hanes for Him with comfort edges,
Hedge trimmer to trim the hedges,
Solar flashlight, Miracle Ear,
Underwater scuba gear,





High-grain leather car seat covers,
Chicken Soup for Gerbil Lovers,
Stone-washed denim name-brand jeans,
A thousand gourmet jelly beans,





Thermal-shielded tupperware,
Carbon-bonded captain’s chair,
Electrum-alloy nose-hair clippers,
Plasteel clamps with no-slip grippers,





Two "Golf Magazine" subscriptions,
"Elvis: Live," the gold edition,
CDRs and DVDs,
HD LCD TVs,





Cowboy hats and brown suspenders,
Board games, blenders, rusty fenders –
What should I do with all this stuff?
It’s time I said, “Enough’s enough!”





Allow me to correct my error,
And avoid last year’s pure terror –
On my list, one thing will fit me:





Lego – it’s all you need to get me.


-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-

Disclaimer:

1) This creation is not meant to be completely factual. Please, family and friends, do not neglect the giving of shirts, pants, and other necessities for this poor teacher.
2) Lego is a nice gift too.

I dreamt up this crazy creation as a way to celebrate the joy of getting those little plastic bricks for Christmas. Even as a kid, the rule was, "If it rattles, it's a good present."

I should point out that every picture I used (on the CDs, for example) was taken from a Lego catalog.



Here's a view of my backyard. I tried to make my house true-to-life. I was planning to make a scene showing me failing to utilize a hedge-trimmer properly. Another idea was to have a scene with a shark chasing me (in my underwater scuba gear, of course!). But I scrapped the idea for doing extra scenes, and chose to just stick with the living room.



This is a lesson in the dangers of leaving your Lego out. My 3 year old daughter did some beautification work in the backyard in the middle of my project. She called it Santa's yard.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Quoting Thomas of Tortuga I love how the presents keep getting more and more extravagant! Nice job!
Thanks, Thomas. I was of course inspired by the king of escalating insanity, Weird Al Yankovic. Hard to believe it's been four years since I built and wrote this. Wow.

It looks like during the building of this you learned the difference between NAUGHTY and NICE! And it looks like N I C E won. So are all the friends of LEGO that view this marvelous exploration to the meaning of the holiday! All I could think about was there isn't a LEGO vacuum cleaner yet, how would the LEGO wife get rid of all the LEGO wrapping paper? Loved the detail of the SPONGE-BOB dvd! Your daughter is lucky to have such a playmate as you. You are helping to shape a better future with her and LEGO is the medium. Great poetry!

Quoting Commander Fox LOL!! When I get a gift and it rattles my first two thoughts are: 'I hope its LEGO!!', and 'I hope its not a jigsaw puzzle.'
No kidding! I was the same way. Wait, I still am!

Quoting Architect of Vonthako BTW, do you care if I use your "captain's chair" design? I'll give you credit and link back to this page, of course.
Sure! (As in "Sure, go ahead," not "Sure, I mind.")

He didn't get much then, this was brilliant the poem made it really interesting. The amount of detailed was also crammed in to the max, but how could Santa be so stupid "LEGO" of course.

"Chicken Soup for Gerbil Lovers..." HAHAHAHA When did kelso come into this? See, now THIS is why I did my OWN shopping this year. Last year, I got socks and a hoodie... Here, let me repeat that so it sinks in. Socks... and a hoodie. Not this year! But I did take the time to introduce my wife to the Lego store employees yesterday so hopefully that will give the ever so subtle hint that I intended... of course the employees went and ruined my extra cirriculars by commenting on my daughter's shyness with... and I quote... "Why is she so shy today? This place is like her second home!" Nice going ladies (employees), don't think I didn't hear about THAT comment for the rest of the day... Great build Wes! Here's to more sets and less socks! ~ Chris.

Exquisite creation here Mr. Pitter! The poem is quite excellent and the room design is great! Your list resembles my own: 1. Scotch, 2. Lego. Course, all I ever get is coal, not even real coal either. Cheers.
