Apolo Anton LEGO

I know I need to go cold turkey, after sitting down to free build the other night while watching the Olympics and finding myself trying to put together a curling vignette. That is not a good sign.

It's funny how what you're doing in life tends to leak into what you build. In part, I think that comes from starting to see the LEGO bricks hidden in real life shapes -- kind of like the guessing game in a Highlights magazine or Tom Hanks in The Da Vinci Code. It's why I now stare at most things with a quizzical expression on my face -- my head cocked to the side in a similar manner to my dog when she is confused.

Although this is a nice time to go back and check out the amazing recreation of the 2008 Olympic village from Beijing, China. The Water Cube and 4,500+ minifigs are mind-boggling. I figure if I start now, I can be done with my version of the games in London by 2012.
