I have a little thing for the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar.
I found out about it based on a recent hack suggesting an advent calendar as a potty training reward chart. I then mentioned my crazy impulse to possess it on the blog and on Twitter and was FORCED VIA RELENTLESS PARENTHACKER CYBERBULLYING to purchase one.
We opened Door #1 last night, and it's as awesome as I had hoped.
@homawoodrum describes herself as a geek, lawyer, wife, and mom. I would add "writer," as she has a lovely blog as well. I will also add "kindred spirit" because we've been trading funny tweets about Star Wars, LEGOs and other topics for quite some time now.
Last night, she passed along a pointer to the official holiday site for LEGO Star Wars. There are all sorts of fun and silly things happening there, but she pinged me specifically because of this:
For each e-greeting sent via the site, LEGO is donating a new LEGO set to Toys for Tots, up to a million sets.
These are funny little video spoofs of LEGO Star Wars characters in silly holiday scenarios (I've included an example below). Good for a chuckle, and GREAT for the potential of free LEGOs to kids who can't afford them.
So head on over! Send e-greetings to the Star Wars-, LEGO-, and humor-lovers in your circle. In my circle, that covers pretty much everyone.
