A while back I went to the LEGO headquarters in Enfield, CT. While I was there I went to the employee store with our host. I was able to purchase some different sets including the two Thor Ragnarok themed sets in their Marvel Super Heroes line. I’ve been wanting to build these sets for a while and I finally got a chance to do so in the past couple of days. Because I am headed to L.A. for the #ThorRagnarok Event I figured that I would also livestream my build and talk about the movie in the hopes that there would be people who would be interested in asking me questions about the movie or have questions to ask the cast. I do not know, at this time who I will be interviewing while I am there but it will be a couple of people, I hope. I put both of my livestreams on Facebook and then uploaded them to YouTube. You can find them in various places but I will also embed them here. Look for them below.

Today was a nice day with Andrew. I took him to school and then went to the gym. From there I went back to shcool and played some Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild until it was time to go in to read to Andrew’s Class.
I read the class two books. The first was Different is Awesome by Ryan Haack and illustrated by my friend Wes Molebash. The kids liked that very much. The second book was Nanette’s Baguette by Mo Willems. The kids loved that story and they laughed like crazy. That book is a great one for laughter. Andrew said it was his favorite book.
We went to lunch at Bliss Bros. Dairy because I had a craving for clamcakes and chowder. Andrew was s so much fun at lunch. We are starting to have better conversations and he’s such a joy to take to a meal. He was funny and sweet. He impressed the waitress, too, with his speaking. She said to me that he spoke so well and then she asked him how old he was. He held up his hand. I looked at him and said, “She just said that you spoke well and then when she asked you a question you just help up your hand.” He pointed to his mouth. His mouth had been full and so he was actually being polite. Well, I’m glad he had the presence of mind to be polite in that moment.
We went to the playground right after that. Andrew played on his favorite things like the zipline and the swings. He took a couple of falls but got right back up to try it once again.
In my video I talk about the new Marvel Superheroes LEGO set that Brian and I built for an episode of Built from Bricks. The Hulk vs Hulk set is a great one. It is really fun to play with, too. You will see when the episode is released.
