Lego my Valentine – Part 2


Well, dearest reader, if you read my post the other day you will know that my husband bought me a Lego Harry Potter set, that some crappy person had previously emptied the box out, stuffed with a K’nex set, and sold back to the store. It made me make a sad face!

Today the good husband returned to the store to exchange the now K’nex set with a proper Lego Hogwarts, only to discover that the store was all sold out!

Double sad face.

So he decided to look on Amazon for the Lego Hogwarts set. I probably would have settled for something else (The Burrow for instance, which will be mine some day, oh yes it will!) But dang-it I really wanted the Lego Neville Longbottom that came with the Hogwarts set that would have been mine, had the muggle who “bought” it before my husband didn’t completely suck!

Well, it turns out I should be thanking the redneck out there that thought it would be a sweet deal to trick Wal-Mart by swapping Legos with K’Nex.  Unbeknownst to us, the husband had a $50 credit on Amazon.

HUZZAH! A now $3 Lego Hogwarts is en route to me as we speak.


I mean, how great is Neville Longbottom? So great, right?

Neville Longbottom - the ultimate bad-ass!


They can't keep me from you Neville!

Lego my Valentine


My husband and I are children. If something is marketed for a 12-year-old, you can pretty much bet money we’ll be in line to buy it. So when things are made that combine childish elements, such as Legos… and Harry Potter… well that’s just a recipe for my happiness. I know this, my husband knows this, and now you know this!

Well, instead of things like roses, or fine jewelry, my husband set off for the store to get what would surely make me happier over all other things — a ginormous Lego Harry Potter set of Hogwarts! Score!

Well, you can imagine my excitement when I tore into the box, ready to get my hands on a tiny Lego version of Neville Longbottom..

I mean come on! There could be nothing better in this world than a miniature Neville Longbottom!

After fighting with the tape holding the box together, I eagerly threw my hand into the box to pull out all the tiny Lego bits (which were sure to scatter to the four corners of the room ready to embed themselves in my foot) .

Except, I found this instead:

"Hmm maybe they added a mini-game in this Lego set?" - me to myself.

I thought this was odd, random dice, red and blue bits, and other oddities.

Then I learned, there were no Legos in my box at all. I did get a freaking full box of K’Nex though… thank you very freaking much to whoever did this! Not cool, nay, not cool at all!

Maybe if I had paid attention in transfiguration class I'd know how to turn this into a Lego Hogwarts set!

I would like to use crucio on whoever took home a Lego Harry Potter set, unboxed it, stuffed random dice and a K’Nex set back in it, returned it to Wal-Mart and got their money back! How rude!

Oh well, at least I can go to bed knowing that Captain Jack Sparrow won’t let me down!
