Lego Mania...Or Why I Need a Hobby...A Husband...or a Hug

So....I might have gone a little crazy at the lego store at the Mall of America. I should say, we have a Lego store in Dallas. As a rule, I don't shop places out of town that we have in town if they have the same stuff. They have the same stuff in MN that we have in Dallas. As a rule, I try to avoid buying meaningless, silly things I'll only use once. As a rule, I never follow any rules I set up for myself. So....I bought this.

Doesn't every 31 year old need lego men ice cube trays? I thought so too.
I made ice.

You might could use these for a robot party, huh? (Have I justified this purchase yet?)

I turned all my dogs into cannibals.

The lego men screamed as my dogs nibbled.
I also do birthdays and barvmitzvahs.
I'd say I don't get out much, but I get out all the time. I'm just not quite right.
And then I decided to use these as little chocolate molds.

I made little baggies of these lego men for some lego-maniacs I know (who I previously made a lego cake for). I believe in bribing children to like me, I'm preparing for motherhood.
I could have really gone crazy playing with colors, and making features, but at this point I was ready to move on to my next toy, and the word crazy hit a little too close to home. Alternative Title to This Post-A product you will see at a garage sale at some point in the future.

Those are sooo cute! I know several "grown-up" men that never grew out of their Lego obsessions who would LOVE those! You could even add some food coloring to make them more Lego-ish. :)

These are so cute!!! Don't sell them, think how much fun they'll be next time you re-discover them :D

I went as a block of lego to a "block" party once if that makes you feel any better...!! You're never too old for lego I say!
