i do not wear a pocket protector.

 
total geek alert. 
 
you are looking at pictures of a christmas present.  it's legos.  it's lord of the rings.  its a perfect union.  and it doesn't belong to a child.  well, at least not one of my children.  that's because it belongs to me.  a 36-year old man.  i opened it up at Christmas and rejoiced.  and it didn't take long until i had opened up and started playing with my toys.  in fact i've already put it all together twice, and had it configured in a variety of ways. 
 
i told you i was a geek. 
 
in other news, i do NOT wear a pocket protector. 
 
 but i am totally in touch with my inner nerd.  and that nerd tells me to hold on just a little bit longer because Gandalf is coming with the morning light.  there is always hope. 
 
 
uh-oh!  orcs are breaching the wall!
 
 
oh no!  the urak hai is about to blast the wall open!
 
 
legolas takes care of business with his bow.

I feel so much better now. I actually said out loud, to Vinny, at one point this past year, "Do you think I could get legos for Christmas?"- he looked at me funny. I don't think he took me seriously.

I love legos!
