It's super-green day  
Happy St Patrick's Day! I'm embracing Guinness and my love for boiled potatoes tonight. There may be Bushmills later.

I'm also writing my bsg_remix fic, which I hope reads better than I feel it does. Remix always makes me feel like I'm not doing justice to the original. bleh. Well, there's always editing to help make it better , as long as I finish in time.

Today it was mostly rainy, so kidlet stayed indoors and built the LEGO space shuttle he got for -+his birthday. It's the big one -- lego also makes a smaller version which we also have. This is the complex one with 1230 pieces. It's pretty frakking cool, I have to say -- there's a little satellite and arm that fits in the cargo bay, fuel tank, boosters, retractable landing gear, and fits two little astronaut minifigs in the cockpit.

cool, huh? He follows those picture directions so easily now with all that practice.

Nice! I've been considering getting that big Lego shuttle for myself, as an "I may be getting older, but I'm still a kid at heart" present to myself.

It's awesome (and I know my boyfriend wants this LEGO set, he loves LEGO even more than I do).
