I’ve moved to a new, faster, server. So… things should load better. If, perchance, you tried to comment before… it should be fixed now. I had to reset the server paths to different folders and missed one. It should all be good now.
It finally happened. Unexpectedly, my nearly eight year old son questioned the existence of Santa Claus. That’s right… in September, long before Christmas, he came to the conclusion that SC might not be real.
We were very dramatic. “Are you sure you want to know? Once we tell you the answer, there’s no going back, you’ll know forever.” There was no going back. He asked again, promised he wouldn’t cry, said he wanted to know. So I told him (somewhat gleefully.)
I did forget to make Mica promise not to cry before delivering the bad news. She, of course, burst into tears. This made B break his no-crying promise and make another one to “never grow up and leave you.” He promised to stay forever.
Later, with the cat out of the bag he asked about the Easter Bunny, no not real either. He then wanted us to list all the holidays in order in case he forgot one. Mica didn’t want me to do that so he asked if I could repeat them backwards… and then, when that didn’t work either, randomly. I just told him that there aren’t any more holidays with fake present-givers. He was very interested in how much money we had spent on his gifts, trying to figure it out himself when we wouldn’t tell him. Somehow, the Tooth Fairy never came up, though he has lost two teeth in the last week. I’m expecting this conversation in the near future.
In excitement for the new Indy movie I’ve bumped Raiders of the Lost Ark to number one on the all time list. Raiders never gets old, never ages, never wears out its welcome. It has always been a spectacularly entertaining movie and I will always love it. (The rest of my list may change, but Raiders will always be in the top three.)
To say I am giddy as a schoolgirl about the upcoming Indy movie would be a tremendous understatement. I’m a gaggle of giddy schoolgirls, twittering every time I see a new poster. So keep that in mind as I gush rapturously over a couple of upcoming Lego Indiana Jones products.
Lucasarts, that crazy video game company owned by George Lucas (go figure) can make some really bad, lets make money quick, games (see most of the Star Wars video games.) They’ve also churned out some of the best games of all time (Sam ‘n Max Hit the Road, Day of the Tentacle, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis etc.) The Lego Star Wars games are fun, cute and easy; in what other game is dying actually kinda fun?
With a new Indiana Jones movie on May 22nd 2008 (early in the morning, I’m sure, like midnight...) Lucasarts is releasing… Lego Indiana Jones! Woot!
Also, some scans of the upcoming Indiana Jones Lego sets were released. WARNING: SPOILER ALERT! This may give away key plot points!
