LEGO and Atlantis -- a year too late

Today is the first time I've ever felt like I started the book project a year too late. And that's because I just found the press release which notes that LEGO and the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas have struck up a strategic partnership.

While it was outstanding to visit Denmark, Seattle, Chicago, Ohio and Michigan in pursuit of LEGO fans and creation, it would have been nice to visit the Bahamas in the name of book research. None of the locales I went to are likely to be mistaken for the Caribbean.

Once in the Bahamas, I could have done important work and finally discovered why I am unable to tan. For now, I will have to resort (yup, that's a pun) to purchasing Atlantis sets -- in order to make it through the harsh winter here in Kansas City. But there's a minifig with a sharkhead, so I've got that going for me, which is nice.

Regardless, I'm excited for the master builders that get to lead five-day fantasy camps in June. Getting paid to play with LEGO bricks while staying in the Bahamas is a job that I'm sure falls into the category of dream.
