I received some presents from my officemates. Through gift-giving, I realized that these people who get stressed every now and then would really think about what to give their co-workers this season. These thoughts came running in my head because I really like the things they gave me for this Christmas. Not to sound materialistic but I felt they took their time looking for the stuff I’d want/use, I really find it cute. I mean, if you get stressed every now and then, you wouldn’t want to stress yourself with shopping. This is probably what “It’s the thought that counts” meant. Clearly, highly-creative people are the coolest.
My fascination with all things LEGO is inexplicable. What I do remember is asking an uncle of mine to buy me a LEGO when I was a kid and that was it. Now I fancy LEGO-inspired things, be it apparel, accessories, novelty items—anything that involves building blocks and minifigs (aka the LEGO people). My first purchase of a LEGO-like item is the iSound LEGO speaker, but up to now, I still haven’t found anything to add to it to make the phrase “collecting items” a reality.
This reminds me of a LEGO exhibit some months back, held at the Mega Atrium. There were plenty of minifigs all throughout the exhibit area!
