Day Tw- Eh, Three of BrickFair VA

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in BZPower, Real Life, LEGO Aug 01 2015 · 413 views

Hey, folks. I thought I would give another BrickFair update.

So as title suggests, Friday is technically third day of BrickFair VA. Although for me, it is technically the second day as well, we skipped Thursday as mention in previously entry.

For those wondering why, I promise my friend that we would take a day away from convention to check out local sights such as the Air & Space Museum and Thursday just seen like best day to do. Although I am sad that I miss out on seeing "How LEGO Impacts Our Lives" seminar on Thursday.

Hm... I guess I'll take a moment really quick to tell you all what exactly we did on Thursday. Basically we got to check out the Air & Space Museum (Which I must say it is really cool and personally I recommend seeing it, if you ever get the chance. I also got like 552 photos of that place on my computer. I'll probably share some of those pictures with you all later when I return home.) and I got to watch the Marvel film, Ant-Man (Which was also pretty cool... I should probably watch more Marvel films. This is like third Marvel film that I have seen so far.).

But anyway, back on to Friday's recall, the day started with me being a worry wart like usually (Which did nothing but make me more tense about stuff.). I ended up taking a couple of walks around the Holiday Inn as a result, which did help relieve some of those worries as weather today was just so calming compared to previous days that it did well, to get my mind off things.

Eventually we left the hotel to go to an IHOP for breakfast / lunch, which was nice (Although I still don't have much of appetite as I can't seem to finish any meal that I start during this trip. *shrugs*). After the meal, we decided to play some Mini-Golf since the weather was nice enough for it.

It was good idea (Especially since we were using it to kill some time as we wanted to check out the seminar on "The LEGO Design Process" later.), but unfortunately I ended up going down the hill for second hole too fast to go after my ball and well, I tripped scratched up my right arm pretty bad. So yeah, it kind of ruin the mood of the day and I was rather irritable throughout the rest of golf course as well, I was in pain and all. (For those wondering why we just didn't stop the game right there, I really didn't want to ruin the outing, so I decide to just keep trucking.)

That injury pretty much derailed the seminar plans as we felt that I should take easy after returning to hotel. We eventually up playing some local co-op stuff on our 3DSs, which was fun. Although after awhile, my friend shifted gears to a single player game, so I decided to go out for another walk to collect dinner.

And well, after eating, I decided that I was going to walk over to convention center since I was curious about what things looked like now. And man, there was a lot cool stuff on display. I ended up going around taking photos till my phone died. Once that happened, I just head back to hotel, so I could go charge it and come back later. It took awhile though, so I didn't get back to convention until an hour before World of Lights thing.

My friend decide to join me this time as he wanted to see what World of Lights was about, so we went over. Took some pictures of displays until lights were dimmed / turned off (Well, my friend was able to get pictures of some of the World of Light stuff since he had a better camera than I as I only got a phone camera and all.). I thought World of Lights was pretty cool and I walked around a few times till I felt that I saw them all.

After awhile, I decide to just sat down near my MOCs and have a break from walking. That's about it really. I mean we eventually head back to the hotel, so we could sleep and all.

Well, i guess I'll mention what BZPers that I talk to that day. For most part, it was just Aanchir & Lyichir (Who shown me there really cool poster of Generation 2 Gali that they won during the auction that day.) and AT (Who ask me how the trip was going, ect.). That was nice. There were other BZPers around and all, but I never buck up the courage to say anything to any of them.

And that was Friday basically. It was certainly an interesting day. That's for sure. XD

But anyway, its Saturday now, so hopefully I'll be around a bit more today. And well, if there are still tickets for BZP Party thing tonight, I guess I'll pay Black Six the fee today since AT convinced me to go and all yesterday.

Alright, that's enough rambling. I guess I'll see some of you folks later. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have great week.

Day 1 of BrickFair VA

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in BZPower, Real Life, LEGO Jul 30 2015 · 356 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in and let you know how day one of BrickFair went. Honestly I didn't do much really, outside of walk around the convention center a lot since I wasn't sure really what to do really after setting up my MOCs (Which I am not sure they are in the right place. I mean the map say its a BIONICLE table, but I have heard Pop Culture want the space, so I wouldn't be surprise if it got moved. *shrugs*). Oh, and fail a lot at Bingo.

It was nice though getting to see some BZPers in person. Mind you, it is not the first time for such people like Aanchir, Lyichir, Team Farm Animals, and Black Six. But well, I got meet people like Lady K, Vezok's Friend, TLH, Turakii, and TLH's & Turakii's kid (Adorable child, btw) for first time, which was cool. Although I was pretty deer in headlights around them. Sorry.

But overall, I would say it was good first day (It was pretty exhausting day too. XD). I mean I did vomit in a Burger King parking, but honestly that's par for the course considering it always happens when I do anything new really.

That's about it really. Uh, I guess I will see some of you folks again on Friday since I won't be in today as I am going to being checking out some sights and stuff today with my friend. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have great week.

BrickFair VA Tomorrow

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in BZPower, LEGO, Real Life Jul 28 2015 · 405 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in and give update since BrickFair VA tomorrow. Man, today was a whirlwind of day preparing for that (I am glad that I decided months ago to take off today from work. It was definitely was needed.). XD

But well, I managed to get all my luggage ready. I got some of our schedule a bit more nailed down (Admittedly I would like to have done that a bit sooner than today, but my friend was busy last weekend.), which I guess I will share here really quick:

Wednesday
- Leaving at 10 AM (Originally it was going to be 7 AM... But due to the check in time, we kind had to change that plan as we probably would gotten there at like 9:30 AM, which means we would have keep our luggage in hot car for quite a few hours as we can't check in till 3 PM. However according to phone conservation, the earliest check in without an additional charge is 1 PM.).
- Arrival Time in Virginia be around 12:50 PM (Assuming there is not too much traffic and stuff)
- Have a quick lunch, then head to hotel to check in (As mention before, it should be around 1 PM at that point)
- After checking in and carrying our stuff to the room, we will probably take a rest in hotel room for a bit
- Currently we shooting to head over to convention center around 3 PM and well, we should be there for most of day after that (We might step out for a quick dinner at some point)

Thursday
- The plan right now is to skip the convention day and check out some of local stuff like the Air & Space Museum, ect.

Friday
- I am not completely sure about, but I think we will be around later in the day for convention. *shrugs*

Saturday
- I should be around most of public hours (I might step out for like meal or something). I am not sure about after that as we were talking about idea of maybe checking out the laser tag event thing. Although my friend is not BZPower member, so I am not sure if he would be allow to come with (I mean we would both pay the fee to go and all.). *shrugs*

Sunday
- Again, I should be around for public hours and closing ceremonies stuff. That and I will be around to help with MOC tear down stuff obviously (Which I assume I give my MOCs off to Black Six after that as I am letting BZP take them to BrickFair NJ).

That's about it really. I look forward to meeting you awesome folks and getting to experience a little what like behind the table. Hopefully I won't be a total social failure there.

Uh, I guess I will see some of you folks later. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have great week.

5 Days...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in LEGO, Real Life, BZPower Jul 23 2015 · 412 views

Hey, folks. I thought pop back in today and let you all know how things are going this week. Mostly in terms of a BrickFair VA stuff as hey, the trip next week, so its time to run around like a headless chicken as I try make sure I have everything ready. XD

Before I start on that though, I thought I take a moment and wish BZPower a happy birthday since I hadn't done that yet.

Happy Birthday, BZPower!

As I mention in my previous entry, thank you for so many years of great memories and here's to many more.

Alright, with that done, let's back on to the topic of BrickFair VA. First up, I decided on what MOCs that I will be bringing with me. Originally I was going to ship them, but I kind decided last week that I would just bring them with me since it will save money on shipping cost. That and I kind got sidetracked working on my tenth year anniversary gift to BZPower.

So yeah, I am bring my MOCs with me, which is probably for the best since it would be kind weird going to a LEGO convention without any LEGO on you (It also avoids me having awkwardly ask Black Six if I could help with my MOCs. XD). Really I only issue that I have with my MOCs (Beside, the fact that they are not that good.) at the moment is I am struggling to think of names for them.

It mostly an issue because I need to fill out the forms for both BZPower and BrickFair VA website (Yes, I am aware I won't get MOC Cards since I miss the deadline, but you can still registered there. However I do need to at least do BZPower convention form as I plan on letting BZPower take them to next convention.).

Beside that MOC stuff, I believe I am mostly ready for the trip (Although I must admit I am kind of nervous already.). I am going to head to the bank tomorrow to get some cash for the trip and pay my rent obviously (Next month's bills are going to be fun to pay... XD). I also got my BIONILUG brick ready, so it finally have a use next week.

Schedule wise, we will be coming down on Wednesday. I am not sure when we will get there exactly, but I am guessing we will be in Virgina by noon or a little earlier (It depends on traffic really.). Although we won't be at convention center till after 3 PM since we can't check into hotel until 3 PM, according to website. So we are probably going to kill some time by checking out the Air and Space Museum nearby.

Based on my last conversation with my friend, we are probably skip out on Thursday to check out other things nearby and Friday, we will be around during the afternoon hours. As for Saturday and Sunday, we should be there for most of those days as far as I am aware.

That's the basic schedule for our trip. I am going to try nail it down some more this weekend with my friend, so if anything changes I let you folks know.

That's about it really. I can't think of anything else to mention, although I probably did forget something. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day. Talk to you later, BZPers.

P.S. - Check out my 10th anniversary gift, if you hadn't already.

Belated: Look like my vacation is…over

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games, Real Life Jul 08 2015 · 320 views

Hey, folks. It been awhile since I wrote an entry here, so I thought I pop in today and give you all an update.

As the title states though, I actually meant to post this sooner, but I kind of got sidetracked with other stuff on Sunday. That was mostly because I was reorganizing the basement as we got a new shelving unit on Saturday…

I would take some pictures to show you how it looks, but basement is still a bit of a mess as I didn’t have a whole lot time to look through some old junk, ect.

But anyway, I think I am getting a bit ahead of myself here. I mean that was the end of my vacation week, after all. Let’s rewind a bit.

First though, I think I’ll explain why I was off last week. So this week and last week are what my employer calls shutdown weeks, which are basically their recommended time to take your vacation time and they serve as maintenance weeks since they do a lot of cleaning in the shop during these weeks.

Most people at my work are entitled to at least two weeks vacation (You also don’t have to take your vacation time during shutdown weeks.). Although it varies depending on how long you have been there. For me personally, I am only entitled to two weeks vacation (And well, I won’t be getting three weeks until four years from now.).

Now usually I only take one week off (And it is usually the first shutdown week, which is the week of July 4th) as it means my second week check is basically a bonus check as I basically get paid twice for a single week, which it is kind of nice.

Of course, I am kind of breaking that tradition as I will be taking that second week to go down to BrickFair VA, so no bonus week paycheck this year. But well, hopefully BrickFair will be worth giving up that extra check.

Alright, that’s enough explaining. Let’s get back on topic, shall we? As you already know, I was off from work last week, so the question now is: What did I do during my week break?

Honestly not a whole lot really. I did managed to do at least some of my goals for the week such as renew my photo ID (It was going expired at the end of the month), get a hair cut, and confirmed my reservation at Holiday Inn (Although admittedly I kind have a nagging feeling that they create a new reservation rather than update the one that BrickFair VA website place… I am going to have see about calling them back this weekend.).

The only goals that I didn’t meet last week were my BZPower related ones really, which were getting my MOCs ready to ship, checking out Bionicle Generation 2 story, and working on a secret project.

Well, in the case of the secret project, I have confirmed that one of things involved with it can’t be done, so that’s stinks. I’ll just have to make due with what I have. Hopefully you folks will like it when you see it.

As for MOCs goal, I think I might need your folks’ advice on what to send. Here are some pictures of MOCs that I am considering sending. Although I should note that I will probably will make some changes to a few of MOCs as some of them still have WIP elements.

I am curious though to hear any of your thoughts on them. So if you have any thoughts, feel free to share them. Thanks in advance, if you do.

Beside that stuff, I managed to completed a couple of video games from my Steam library last week. Those games were Her Story & Batman: Arkham Asylum. I thought they both were pretty interesting, especially Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Like once I started playing it, I just couldn't stop. I spent a good amount of three days exploring the Asylum and trying to find everything I could in the game (I managed to get all Riddler trophies.).

So yeah, I rather liked the game and I look forward to checking out Batman: Arkham City at some point. Hopefully it will be just as fun as Arkham Asylum was (Although I imagine finding all Riddler trophies will be quite a task in it considering City looks more open world and stuff.).

Uh... That's about it for my vacation last week. Oh, wait... I didn't mention that I checked out my first gaming convention on June 27th. Really I would go on about that here, but I already ramble enough about it on my Tumblr, so I'll spare you the details as I doubt you will want to read the wall of text recap that I wrote there.

But yeah, I had a fun day at that convention with some friends (It is called, "Too Many Games" Con for those wondering.) and I got to see Jurassic World later (I ended up seeing it twice during my vacation since my sister wanted to see it too.). Personally I liked Jurassic World for what it was. I won't say it was a perfect film, but it certainly was entertaining and had its moments. *shrugs*

Alright, that's enough from me for today. I hope you all have a great day and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.

General Rambling: Splatoon & Thinking of Summer

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games, Real Life Jun 08 2015 · 306 views

Hey, folks. Its been awhile since I have done one of these entries, so I thought I pop in and let you know how things are going. Really there is not a whole lot to say. Things mostly been same old same here (Wake up, go to work, go home, use free time in some way, go to bed...Repeat).

So nothing exciting really (I mean I would talk about work stuff, but I imagine that would bored most of you greatly.).

Uh... I got Splatoon recently, for those that might be wondering (Although my status message here probably gave it away quite clearly.). Personally I am enjoying it.

Although I will admit in its current state, it is overpriced, especially if you added the Amiibo for it into the equation. So yeah, I can't blame some people for waiting to get it as it does feel like it could used some more content. Another game mode or two for online would been nice to have. Bosses in single play mode (Excluding Final Boss, whom I am currently struggling to beat.) could use some more difficult as well (Like third boss, I beat super quick. There was little challenge to that one at all.).

So yeah, its far from perfect. But I am enjoying it and there is promise of future free updates (Which they have already introduced a new map and some weapons), so I feel at least somewhat justified in my purchase of it. That and well, I guess it is my "vote with my wallet" that Nintendo trying new things is a good thing. *shrugs*

But anyway, I wouldn't say I am saying I am that good at Splatoon. I mean I am kind of afraid to try Ranked Mode since I became level 10, not too long ago. XD

I don't really have a weapon that I am particularly good at really. Although I like using N-Zap '85 and Splattershot Jr, so I guess you could say those.

Oh, and I have yet to use the Amiibo, so I can't really comment on those features.

I don't really know how with friends thing for Splatoon works exactly. But if you want to play Splatoon with me, feel free (My Nintendo ID is BZPJMJ64.). I am sure you will crush me. XD

***

In other news, I been discussing with my friend about BrickFair VA trip lately and well, trying nail down a bit of schedule for us since its good to be prepare and stuff. And well, I thought maybe I should ask you folks for some advice since a lot of you are veterans of this kind of thing and I am kind of noob with this traveling stuff. So yeah, I appreciate any advice.

I guess write some general questions for you folks to answer, if you want.

1) Is there any particular event at BrickFair VA that we should check out while we are there (Outside well, the MOCs and the people)?

2) Is there anything outside of the con that we should check out (Museums, ect)?

Alright, that's enough from me for today. I hope you all have a great day and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.

Update: No Jury Duty!

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Real Life May 06 2015 · 420 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in again and let you all know all how jury duty went since I mention it in the last entry.

I went in at 7:40 AM, which is early since its start at like 8:30 AM. And well, after finding my way around with signs, I went inside the right building and went thru the metal detector (First time I been through one of those. Put my book, keys, wallet, and phone in scan thingy.).

Once that was done, I follow signs again to Jury Assembly and I gave my notice paper to folks at the desk there. After that, I start to wait for other people to show up, so they could start (I was like second person to arrival there.). I am glad I brought a book as I would been bored. XD

Oh, and for those wondering what book I was reading, its "Sphere," by Michael Crichton. I actually had this book for awhile since I brought it after I enjoyed some of Michael Crichton's other literature works (Jurassic Park, The Lost World, and The Andromeda Strain).

But well, I never got around to read it until now. I mean it was either this book or Star Wars: Survivor's Quest; which I admit I am not that familiar with all Star Wars EU stuff (Not that it matters too much now due to these stories being non-canon by Disney.), so I thought that one might cause confusion for me.

But anyway, it was actually rather fitting that I start reading "Sphere" as apparently its about a three hundred year old alien spacecraft being discovered in Pacific Ocean. I say its fitting because I start about a month or so ago watching the X-Files, which has its share of extraterrestrial stories as well (By the way, I am currently on Season 6 of the X-Files. Although I still got to watch the movie that goes between it and season 5, so I am not exactly on season 6 just yet.).

Of course, I didn't get very far into that book before we start filling out some jury paperwork (Basically a questionnaire and donation form to donate your jury duty money to one of three special programs.). I think I was on like page 26 (Yeah, I know you and my sister would been like halfway through the book with time I had.). After we finished that, they gave us a bathroom break around 9:40 AM, I think.

And when we return (10:00 AM), they basically told us the case has been settle out of the court and sent us all home. So yeah, that was my first jury duty experience. I must admit I was kind of relief by that news. Not because I had a problem with performing my civic duty, but rather it was due my nerves finally calm down.

I don't know how describe it really, but new things like this always get me work up. I guess because I worried a lot about screwing up and well, interacting with new people in general. (Which is why I kind of glad I won't be going alone on that trip this summer. I am going to need a familiar face to at least try to help keep that in check.)

Oh, and they did count me being there as the jury duty being served, so I shouldn't be called until next year, I guess. Alright, that's about it really. I can't think of anything else talk about. I mean I hadn't really done any more work on spaceship MOCs (Did I mention those here or was that just on Twitter? I don't remember. XD), so nothing new to mention about them.

Hm...I guess I mention really quick that I ended up picking a "NEW" 3DS XL. I must admit I wasn't planning on getting one this soon, especially since I usually don't upgrade my systems (If you want proof of that, just ask me about my original DS. I kept that system until original 3DS came out.).

But well, since I would like play Xenoblade Chronicles 3D at some point in the future and Majora's Mask Edition of "New" 3DS XL came back in stock, I decided to get it early. I hadn't got around to using it yet, but it definitely seem like it faster than my old 3DS was. I am looking forward to trying it out with some games (Like Kid Icarus: Uprising as I am curious how it will play with second analog stick.).

Okay, I think that's enough from me for today. As always, I hope you have a good week and thank you for taking the time to read this. Oh, and thanks again to those that commented in the last entry, I appreciate it. Talk to you later, BZPers.

Jury Duty this week...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Real Life May 04 2015 · 510 views

So this Wednesday is going be the first time that I been summoned to be a juror before. I must admit I am kind of nervous about the idea of sitting in on a court case (Well, assuming they pick me for the case.).

But well, I guess the Ace Attorney games have prepared me for it.

*One of the Pursuit themes from Ace Attorney series starts playing*

… Okay, speaking seriously again, I hope I do a decent job at it, assuming they pick me. I mean I don’t really know what involve with it, outside of a lot of waiting and working with the other jurors involved (Again, assuming they pick me for the jury.) and well, losing a day’s pay at work (Which means no overtime this week...) since the court only paying me $9/Day to be there.

Oh and you have to go through some sort of interview process for them to see if you are right juror for the case. *shrugs*

So yeah, I would appreciate any advice that you veteran jurors might have. Hm…I guess I should maybe bring a book or something with me, so I have something to do during the waiting parts.

I would bring my 3DS, but I imagine that would probably be frown upon in the courts. That and well, you do have to go through a metal detector to enter the place, so I think it would be best not to carry a ton of electronic stuff as it means more stuff to keep track of. *shrugs*

Again, I would appreciate hearing any advice you folks might have.

With that said, I think that’s it for this entry. I am sorry that it was kind dull read. Thanks for taking the time to read it and I hope you all have a great week. Talk to you later, BZPers.

23 Years of Life and 5 Years of Employment

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, Random Apr 20 2015 · 397 views

Hey, folks. Its time for yearly tradition of telling you folks how my birthday went today.

Like last year, I don't have a lot to say. It mostly just a normal work day really, although I was very tired today (I probably should gone to bed earlier yesterday. XD). So it wasn't fun or exciting work day, especially considering I am doing quotes and that can very dull when you are doing them for like 8 hours straight (We also had an issue today as our supplier's website was having server issues.).

But anyway, that's probably boring stuff to mention to you folks. Hm... I guess I mention here what I got for my birthday as I got more gifts than I was expecting this year (I mean I was expecting nothing really. XD). So here's short list of what I got for my birthday:

- The entire Professor Layton series + Professor Layton VS Phoenix Wright*
- Grim Fandango Remastered* (on Steam)
- Knock-knock** (on Steam)
- Cake and Grilled Cheese***
- Cards***

*from a real life friend (Its same friend that helped me take those day visits to BrickFair VA. And as mention in previous entries, he also coming with me for this year's trip to BrickFair VA)

**from Voltex (Lucina)

***from family

So yeah, it was a bit surprising that I got that much and part of me doesn't feel like I deserve it really. *shrugs* I especially feel indebted to my friend for getting entire Professor Layton series as last I checked, they were kind of expensive. I definitely going to need to come up a way to pay him back for that.

Outside of that stuff and work, I would say I had a good birthday today. I mean I got eat Grilled Cheese (Which is one of my favorites) and I don't feel nearly as tired as I was earlier. So yeah, I would say I am happy with this day for most part.

That's all I really have to say about my birthday. As a side note, yesterday was my 5th anniversary of being employed. I don't really anything say about that, beside obviously that I am rather graceful to still have this job.

Alright, that's enough from me for today. I apologize if this was kind of a boring read. I hope you all have a great day and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.

General Rambling: Firefly, the X-Files, and WIP MOCs

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, LEGO, Random Mar 30 2015 · 378 views

Hey, folks. I thought I should pop in today and give another little update here. Although I’ll admit not a whole lot has happen since my last entry really.

Just been doing the usual stuff during my free time, which for this month (March) seems be mostly watching stuff on Netflix and well, using Twitter to share random thoughts that I have. XD

So yeah, this is probably going to end up being a very TV show related entry as well, I would like to share some of my non-spoiler thoughts on the shows that I been watching.

I guess I’ll start off with Firefly since I mention I was watching it in the previous entry here. I believe finished that show about two weeks ago, so everything should be still fresh in my mind hopefully.

To start off, I enjoyed the show, although I am definitely disappointed that it was cancelled before anything could come of it. It look like it would been interesting, if it had been given the chance.

That being said, I wasn't a huge fan of follow up movie, Serenity. Not so much because some characters that I like died in it (Which I won't mention more than that for spoiler reasons) as I understood from story perspective why their deaths were necessary.

It was more because the plot felt extremely rushed to me and as well, I think my expectations were a bit too high for it (I blame the great movie finale that Farscape had for that.).

Of course, I am not saying I hate the movie (Serenity) as I like getting to see the crew again and getting some closure with mysteries surrounding River. And the "villain" of the film was also pretty awesome. So yeah, the film has a bit of mixed opinions for me.

***

"I'm a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar."

***

Moving right along, since I finished Firefly, I kind out of the blue decide to check out the X-Files since I always rather curious about that show (By coincidence, it was on the day that Fox confirmed that they were bringing the X-Files back next year.).

And well, I like it. It kind like FRINGE, but with more of focus on extraterrestrials and government conspiracies. Not sure what else to say really since I don't want to bored you with personal theories about an old 90s show.

Oh, and I am currently on Season 2, Episode 14.

***

"The Truth Is Out There."

***

Alright, so the last topic for this entry is WIP MOCs since I got a couple or so in work since I decided build, while I watch the X-Files on Netflix. XD So yeah, here's some links to them:

WIP Figure 1

WIP Figure 2

WIP Spaceship

I am not sure at this point if I will be shipping all of these MOCs (when they are finished) on the convention circuit. I am thinking about it though, especially "new" spaceship one (Which I might sent along with its "sibling" from last year's circuit as I think they both look rather good together.) *shrugs*

Oh, and I am thinking of maybe trying buy some LEGO light bricks as I think it might be neat to have parts of the spaceship light up. I am not sure how well that will go (Especially considering last time I ordered something LEGO related, I never got it. *sigh*), but I am going to see about giving it a shot at least.

What are you folks' thoughts on them so far? Just curious is all. I know they are nowhere near as good as any of ones that are posted in BBC forum, so I am not expecting praise or anything on them. XD

Well, I think that’s enough rambling for this entry. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day. Talk to you later, BZPers.
