Can you tell I’m having fun?

I received an Abydos building set for Christmas.  It’s from Stargate: SG-1, a favorite sci-fi show.

(Merkin ordered it from ThinkGeek.)

A sister suggested I take before and after photos, and I thought y’all might like to see them.

Here are some before shots:

Abydos before construction

Even the stargate is in ruins!  How will SG-1 get home again?

And then, of course, there is a mighty battle:

So awesome.  I’m enjoying my new toys.  Merkin and BratzBasher find it rather hilarious.

Of course, I’ll have to make a couple of changes.  For one thing, Daniel has grey hair.  Not accurate.  We’ll have to paint it.  And add a gold tattoo to Teal’c’s forehead.  BB found a horn-shaped bit of plastic that we’re using as an artifact for Daniel (an archeologist) to play with, but I don’t have a close-up of that.

What did you get for Christmas?

    “Everything is blurry because it’s all happening so fast.”

    I’ll have to remember that line for my next photo blog!

    I got books and sweaters for Christmas. And socks. Lots of socks. And Santa gave me a nail file. I think he wants me to break out of here.

    Fantastic! And such a worthwhile gift, too, as it’s bring you joy while simultaneously exercising your phalangical dexterity!

    I got the Love Comes Softly boxed set. It’s OK, be jealous.
