Amazing What You Can Do with Lego’s


When I was a kid, I had a friend that had tons of this new toy called Lego’s. Technically I was friends with his sister, yet he had these cool Lego’s I could play with so I hung out with him more often. I loved building stuff with them, even though I wasn’t really creative. The neat thing about Lego’s was how you could build the predetermined structures they provided with the Lego’s (what I tended to do) or they could be used to be creative and use your imagination to create anything you want.



Lego’s have grown into a multi-billion dollar business. Have you ever looked at how expensive some of these sets are? Just a set that builds a plane or car can cost at least $25 bucks. Heaven help you if you get asked to buy a kid one that has a special theme like Star Wars or Harry Potter. Some of these suckers can go $100 and higher.

Like I said, not only can you use these Lego’s for their original use, but since they are a bitch to separate, they can be extremely strong when stacked together so you can even fix things…


Through the years some of these folks have spent thousands of dollars on their Lego collection. Ton’s of little bricks that kill your foot if you have ever stepped on one. (you know what I mean).

So I thought I’d go find some cool things people have made. These are just what Google found pretty quickly, I can only imagine if I went to one of the many sites that are dedicated to this art form.


Here are some buildings people have done…






Can you imagine how much you have to keep looking at the original building to keep tweaking? Never mind keeping to scale.

Then we have the animals




There are tons of ones that people have done with people








and even Santa


And if you are thinking about getting some new shoes…




Ok, I’ll stop, but you have to admit, it’s kind of cool. I’m amazed at the talent it takes to do any of these. I wouldn’t even know how to begin any of these projects. Unless you gave me step by step instructions, I’d be lucky to pull off a box. I use to make some really good boxes.


Have any of you made any cool things out of Lego’s?

Little Game of This or That

So I got to thinking ( I know. scary stuff). What if I did something that anyone could steal and play on their blog as well. No awards to have to thank the world for first, no having to come up with 145 awesome bloggers you could check out. Just a quick fun game to get to know each other a wee bit better.

So I blatantly stole some questions off the internet (Google made me do it).  Thank you sodahead!

Oh, and being the smart ass I am, I had to put my own twist.  Oh you know you would have been disappointed if I hadn’t.

1. Math or English?  I speak English (barely) but I LOVE math!  Hated English in school, but would have done math all day if I could. 

2. Summer or Winter?  I HATE being cold. Give me summer anytime. However, you can keep this darn humidity. If I wanted to be a wet mess I’d jump in the shower or a pool. 

3. Morning or Night? Love the night. Mornings come too early. However, I never get to sleep in. Life is unfair. 

4. Full House or Family Matters? Two great shows from my youth. I’m sorry, the Olsen Twins were way over rated. Weren’t cute then, not cute now. Rich, but not cute. Then again, either was / is Urkle.  Hmm,  loved both, I’ll call it a draw. 

5. Tea or Coffee? Tea for sure. Coffee smells good but tastes terrible. I try it every 5 years and go ..”Yep, still no likey”

6. Harry Potter or Lord of The Rings? Harry wins! Lord of the Rings has a great story but is sooooooooooooo slow and boring. Harry and crew way more amazing and fun. 

7. Black or White? Hate white cars, love black cars, prefer to wear black over white any day. Black crayon is way better… I’m going with black. 

8. Dogs or Cats?  Love both but dogs win. More loyal and loving. Although, they should do a better job at not loosing their fur all over the house. 

9. McDonalds or Burger King? McDonalds. Can you say McRib and McLoving it?

10. Cake or Pie? Not a pie person, but not a big cake person but will take cake over pie any day. Especially ice cream cake!  😀

11. Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate! Vanilla is so plain. The word is even used to describe plain. 

12. Jocks or Nerds? For? Jeopardy, I’ll take the nerds. If it is Sport Jeopardy, I’ll take a jock for 200 please….

13. Cable or Internet?  No cable unless it is providing my internet. We have DirectTV   😀

14. MySpace or Facebook?  I like to have my space but have never had a MySpace. So Facebook baby. (but only in small doses) Besides, I like when folks tell me they like me. They really really like me. 

15. The Simpsons or Family Guy? Hands down Family Guy! Seth McFarland is hilarious…I laugh at the kids today that don’t even get half the 80s references he is making. 

16. Coke or Pepsi? By a landslide…COKE!!!  (excuse me while I take a sip)

17. Batman or Superman? Both are cool. I’ll go with the guy who can fly…Although, Batman does have some cool rides….

18. Fantasy or Reality? Reality. Reality in my life and Reality in my TV shows. 

19. Comedy or Horror? Hate horror flicks. Not a fan of blood and gore. But I’ll laugh my ass off any day. 

20. Pancake or Waffles? Neither. But if you forced me, I’d do pancakes first. But only if lots of syrup to help. 

21. Baked or Fried? Fried…I know, I know, grease is bad for you…. Now back away from my fries!

22. China or Japan?  Hmm, Japan by a hair. Not a fan of the earthquake stuff but waaaaaayyyy to many people in Chine for me. I need my space (just not MySpace). 

23. Hamburgers or Hotdogs? Hamburgers.  Mustard and onions please…. No really… I’m hungry…

24. Salt or Pepper?  Pepper….aaaachhooooo…. 

25. Peanut Butter or Jelly? Now that I’m done dancing (the song..get it??? oh never mind)… I like together only if it is grape jelly

26. Boxers or Briefs? for me or for you? 

27. Amazon or Ebay? Amazon has everything…kind of like Barbie, that bitch has everything too!

28. TV shows or Movies? TV…costs a lot less than the movie and popcorn now a days. Plus you can watch a movie on TV but not TV on a movie screen 

29. Pen or Pencil? PEN! I hate pencils. Even drove my math teachers nuts. We compromised on an erasable pen

30. Phone Call or In person? Neither. I hate the phone and really don’t want to see you. But if you plan to show up, a phone call first please.  (text preferred)

31. Shower or Bath? Yes, you should always take one or the other. Personally, I shower. 

32. Ketchup or Mustard? Depends of course. Mustard is made for meats and ketchup for fries, toast and scrambled eggs.   😀

33.Love or Money? How about if I love money? love doesn’t pay the bills and money can only buy you love for one night, maybe two

34. Movies or Reading? Hate reading remember, but love audiobooks. And I’ve learned that before seeing the movie, read the book since the movie will leave out the good stuff….yes you Harry Potter. If you only see the movies you miss half the good stuff

 35. Michael Jackson or Elvis? Never understood the craziness of Elvis maybe because he was before my time. But I love his music. I was around for Michael but didn’t understand that craziness either. Although he was great in his time. Then again, I have never idolized and went crazy for any singer. Not even the N’Sync and definitely not Justin Beiber.   😀

36. Gift Cards or Cash?   I’ll take either .. Just send too…….  1234 My Space… oh wait…

37. Paper or Plastic? Either is what I say. Although plastic handles seem to last longer.  The birds just need to learn to stop swallowing them. 

38. Santa Clause or Easter Bunny? The bunny is cuter but Santa has the better gifts!

39. Lucky Charms or Trix? Lucky Charms but only the marshmallow pieces. 

40. Mayo or Miracle Whip? Is it me or does Miracle Whip have a funny taste? Just saying….


Ok, I cut out 10 questions, I was going for 50 but I got tired. You will live. I promise. Don’t believe me????

BONUS QUESTION:   Live or Die   LIVE!!!!!!  way more fun


ok, I have to get things done. Hope you had some fun….


~~~till we laugh again~~~

To Comment or Not to Comment…That is the question

Most people think of March as Award season, but for me, it must be April. After all, we are just hitting the half way mark and I’m getting another shout out. However, this one might surprise some.
PouringMyArtOut has bestowed on me the Best Commenter Award.

Now, when one first reads the Title of the Award, you think “Wow, someone really enjoys what I have to say. They think I make the greatest comments!”

But nooooo. This Dodisharkicorn (??) is awarded to your top 5 commenters. Basically the top 5 people who make comments on your blog via your stats.

Then I got to thinking. How did I get such a wonderful award. God knows I hate talking. Then again, I hate reading and I hate writing yet here I am writing a blog, reading other’s blogs and apparently talking to them too. Oh no, another sign that I’m “maturing”.

STOP! the MADNESS!   I don’t want to grow up!

Then again, I’m pretty sure most of my comments are pretty smart ass in nature or going for a laugh. My Achilles heel. Always wanting a laugh. And with Mr Pouringmyartout it is easy to do this. He is a fellow smarty pants and let’s face it, a little off his rocker. Don’t believe me? Check him out.

But, being the good sport I am, I’m going to accept his award, accept the fact that I think he suckers me in by engaging in dialog with me trying to outwit me.  😀

So let’s just cut the sarcasm, and head into the homework (why must all these “awards” come with sooooo much homework?) Don’t they realize people wouldn’t panic if they got “nominated” if it didn’t involve so much work?

But I digress…. So here are the rules, which I cut and pasted so I hope he had them right… LOL

  • Accept Dodisharkicorn award and display it proudly in your widget sidebar.   (not going in the side bar, but I will paste on this page and award page)
  • Find your Top Five Commenters on your Stats page and present them with the award.  If they really comment that frequently, you shouldn’t need to tag them because they’ll see it anyway.  It’s just polite to link to their blog, though. (I know some folks who are quivering in fear right now)
  • Answer the following questions and pass them on to your Top Five Commenters. (who made up these questions? what are their qualifications?)

The Questions

  1. What is your third favorite color? The question assumes I like more than one. Hmm. Depending on my mood my top three are blue, black & orange (orange since I spent 22 years of my life looking at it everyday)
  2. Would you rather be:  a Jedi, a Pokemon Master or a Wizard/Witch?  Choose ONE. One of my nephew’s head would explode if he had to decide between Star Wars and Pokeman… Hmm, I’d do the whole Wizard/Witch route. Way more fun being in Harry Potter world
  3. Who is your favorite Doctor? Dr Pepper
  4. Can you whistle? Only if I’m not chewing Crackers….Don’t believe me, try it
  5. Would you name your child Sirius Albus? Nope, not even Laughing Dumbledore
  6. What is the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything? Laugh at your Everyday Life…. Doesn’t always make it better, but it helps you make it through it
  7. Do you own a lawnmower? Use too, but hard to mow dirt
  8. Do you think Legolas is a (very pretty) pansy? Is this that Elfy guy in Lord of the Rings??? I’m not that big of a nerd (although I did painstakingly listen to all the books and watch the films….why??………So I could say I did)
  9. What’s the trashiest thing you’ve read in the last year?  Should we cover it for Trashy Tuesday? Waste Management on the back of the truck I was following

Whew, ok, I survived part one of the homework.

Now for part two. Who do I torture?? Hmmm.  I’ve already picked on my top commenters in the past so I won’t torture them again. But I will torture I mean pass along the award to those 5 that commented last…..  😀

My #1 commenter good for a few barbs a week is Pouringmyartout who initially tortured me bestowed on my this fine award. But he has gotten too much press out of this whole thing already and we can’t have his head sweel anymore than it already is.   😀

Those I’m torturing (if you decide to take the challenge )– blame him… LOL…..

Since this is all in fun, and passing on links for you to check out…Up to you if you want to play. My feelings don’t get hurt. ALthough the Dodisharkicorn might haunt you in your sleep and personally, I wasn’t going to risk it.

Award season is closed for the rest of the month. If I get anymore, I’ll put them in the spare bedroom until I can unbox them. I love the shout outs. But the homework is killing me and my typing fingers hurt. So all the patting myself on the back must be put on hold. Need to rest my arm.

Tomorrow we will tackle…..Hmmm….. not sure yet. But tune in, I’m sure it will be good!
