UNSURPRISING FORTUNE STATES THE OBVIOUS


It's a week away from Xmas and something fucked-up ALWAYS happens every year, so I'm sure this year will meet somebody interesting in the chain of events of whatever's in store for me this year.  Last year, as it was snowing on Xmas Eve, a back tire not only went flat but apparently had ran over something sharp before pulling into the Tom Thumb parking lot for some groceries.  Had to leave it there overnight until a tow truck could pick it up and bring it to Firestone the day after Xmas.  

The Xmas the year before, water pipes in the house burst and the carpet in the living room and one bedroom were drenched.  A jackhammer had to be brought in, the entire living room floor torn up to fix the water pipes below, and the carpet was ruined more than the original owner's had left it.  The floor was re-cemented over and the following Spring, got new carpet in those damaged rooms. 

I'm actually kinda hoping for a Black Christmas situation this year, something exciting like that.

31" INQUISITOR FIGURE: PIX + VIDEO [12/17/2014]

And Tion Medon had me thinking Utapau'an's had no backbone after their short Episode III appearance.

"I HEAR YOU JUST THE SAME AS IF YOU SHOUTED OUT MY NAME"

"YOUR MASTER WILL DIE. YOUR FRIENDS WILL DIE AND EVERYTHING YOU HOPED FOR WILL BE LOST."

Oh Inquisitor - if you're trying to elicit despair or provoke me in any way, your words have the exact opposite effect.  To a modern-day Eris like me, talking like that is like spoken-word pornography. 

Thanks for dropping in!

LEGO #3817: SBSP - FLYING DUTCHMAN'S SHIP

Once I got started, it didn't take long to finish this 2-piece set.  The only difference with the manual instructions is it's less simplified than the Geonosian Cannon from 2012 (usually each step shows you how many of each block or piece is required, ex. Y block X4, Z block X2). 

It's a plan for the backburner but someday I'd like to order individual specific colored blocks to design the characters from Q*Bert and other 8-bit video games.
