A weekend break

We drove down to visit Alastria's parents today. It was kind of a pre visit for mom's birthday. At her grandma's house we went for a walk down through the field and stopped at all of the 4 or 5 ponds. Then we went back to her parent's house for a bit and went walking through the woods. They just had a pond dug. It's starting to fill nicely thanks to all the rain we've had the last few days. It was a nice break.

Anime Legos!

Ok, so maybe that batmobile was a little expensive but these I could justify. :D Besides one was for Alastria anyway. hehehe. They are really cool after you get them together. The have a light block that goes in the center and shines light down the plastic tube to their gun. Pretty neat looking. They are also very sturdy and well jointed. Nothing like the old lego robots I used to make. Nothing more embarrassing than loosing an arm or leg during a battle... ;) They come with lots of stickers that make them look really cool. In the above picture the white one has the stickers and the red one does not. Most of the stickers are actually in Japanese. Funny though that the "Dragon Wing" sticker is upsidedown on the box picture and on the instructions. lol The little lego guys actually have the wild anime hair. It's actually rubber as apposed to the hard plastic that most lego hair pieces are. Probably a saftey thing with all the points on it. :) Very cool legos!

New Batman Legos!

Ok, I really want the batmobile but it is $30.99. Legos have always been soo expensive. :) Maybe some later... It looks really cool though. :D

New classic G.I. Joe toys

Pretty cool. They are totally brand new toy designs of the classic characters and packaged in the same style packaging as the originals. Then even had the original Colbra H.I.S.S.! Pretty neat. It was actually the original toy with some nice paint instead of those old stickers. :D

My Broken Tablet

My tablet PC has been kinda flakey from the begins and it finally broke. :( The mother board finally bit the big one. Since we are a Gateway service center I ordered a replacement motherboard. The fun begins! I tried getting the board out without removing the display but no luck... Minus the screws in the display I had to remove all of them! And here is the rest of the guts and many many screws. Once I got it apart it was pretty quick to go back together. And the best part of all? It works!! So I'm back to working and WoWing. :)
