Master of my universe

When I began building, I had delusions of becoming a master builder. I haven't given up the goal of mastering LEGO building; but I may have just found a shortcut. For just $39.99, you too can be a BrickMaster....or at least join the club.

The first edition of the BrickMaster magazine came with my welcome to the BrickMaster Club, along with the set you see: the LEGO Indiana Jones jeep. I put it together within minutes of discovering it in my mailbox. Apparently, I can delay gratification as well as any other adolescent who finds that a package is addressed to him.

So I still have a ways to go before I'm a master builder, but in the interim, I can celebrate my BrickMaster membership. And to paraphrase Dodgeball, a title won (via mail order catalogue) is a lot sweeter than a title earned.
