Pinned It/Did It – Lego Table

You know you got it bad for Pinterest.  Or wait, maybe that’s me.  While I don’t wile away hours, I do enjoy my daily pinning time.  And by enjoy I mean crave like a drug.  A multifaceted drug that holds all of the badass shit that life has to offer.  And more.  Not to oversell it, but I’m fairly certain the cure for cancer AND Jimmy Hoffa’s body are stashed somewhere in those never-ending pages.

So Pinterest = crack, meth and dope all rolled up into one tastefully decorated, delicious looking recipe for a balls out internet experience.  Pinning rules, it’s awesome and super dope.  But actually doing something you pinned is the ultimate high.  It’s like, YES, I am a golden god.  I came, I pinned, I brought forth with my own two hands something that before had merely existed in picture form.  I AM CREATOR.

Show me what you’ve pinned. In fact, show ALL of us. Link up at My Own Beeswax.


 So I saw this incredibly awesome Lego table and put a pin in it.

I went to Ikea and acquired a Lack side table for 10 bucks.  On Amazon I purchased a Lego Duplo building plate for 15 bucks.  You can also purchase four Lego building plates for older kids and for more coverage on the table.  If you do this be sure to use a Lego brick to space the plates properly or it could result in super sad panda.  I took a couple of Glue Dots I had lying around the house and glued it.  And then I stuck a bow on it and put it under the tree.

Result = totally fucking awesome(albeit small) Lego table for $25 bucks.  Which is played with every day.  I am a golden pinning god, yo.

Dose Of Happy – Keep It Alive

Over at Band Back Together we’re feeling like we want to junk punch the next person who asks us if we have a case of the Mondays.  So instead of doing the time in the resulting anger management program, we decided to take Monday back.  So we’re linking up our Dose of Happy posts and bringing the awesome back to Mondays.  You can play too.  Now get  your happy on.

Mid-February is right about the time when we Portlanders need a gentle reminder of the good fucking reason for settling down in this place what with all the gloom and doom and excess of gray and rainies.  I’ll probably just watch this on repeat until the sun gets his ass back to town.

Who Shot Mr. Burns?: Part 1

Superdude begets wealth.  Everyman, shunned, shocks a town with one word and greed lays it to waste.  Motives abound.  Blocking the sun for profit leads to bleeding on a sundial.  Or does it?
