A Very "Blocky" Beginning Part 1


To start my first blog I'd like to talk about the age old phrase of "have you ever had one of those days", in LEGO version! *clears throat* Have you ever had one of those days where you feel like the weight of the world is pushing down on you, like you're being stomped down into the ground? This LEGO figure sure is! Poor little guy!


Have you ever had one of those days where your boss is just ripping you to shreds? No matter how hard you try, you just can't seem to get away from him? I don't know what's going on in this picture, but it sure is a good metaphor.




Have you ever had one of those days where you feel like your surrounded by complete idiots? Where you feel like you're so mad you could rip your hair off of your head! Yeah, I think that this guy maybe feeling that. Of course, that's just my thought

Gosh, what a fab banner and avatar! Someone exceptionally clever created that one!!!

I love your first posting. I feel like that poor lego guy in the first picture sometimes!! :) I think my hubby's the guy pulling out his hair in the last pic - but don't tell him I said that!!!

Josh said...

Hooray! I have comments! Thank you so much Catherine! Of course, I'm wondering who I got that banner and avatar from. It was given to me anonymously. Anyway, I can't believe you relate to my pics! Thanks for posting!

Hello my handsome friend! Very nice post...I love it! I have had every single one of those days and, though I may not like them, they definitely made me stronger. Too bad we can't all be Legos! ;-D

Josh said...

Thank you Laura, you're too kind. I knew you'd relate to my rip your hair out one. I've always wanted to be a LEGO too (but not for the same reasons).

Angie Kelly Designs said...

Sakura said...

Josh said...

You're both too kind. Angie: I know, it is a good metaphor! Your words are so kind. *sob* Sakura: Thank You! I did all of the modeling. Unfortunately, I'm not a very good photographer and most of the pictures (which I deleted) were blurry. Both: Ya, my Mom really does make good banners!

Rocki said...

Josh said...

Thanks Rocki! I can't believe so many people are looking at my blog. Hooray! And you know what, everyone is agreeing with the boss thing! As for the banner, even I don't know who I got it from. Do You?!
