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.
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.
"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.
Dude, you are THIS close, just THIS close to getting red tiles from me for Christmas. That was thee 2nd most funny MOC I have ever read! Excellent Excellent, and again I say EXCELLENT! And the punch line was the icing on the cake.
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.
