Correction: Geeky escapism for a rainy day with a houseful of younglings because the weather has been an asshat this week in Ottawa and I’m losing my feckin’ mind at not being able to get outside with them.
So, while they were immersed in the newest Rainbow Loom creations (which, incidentally, included a Minecraft creeper!)…I pulled out a lil’ bitty bit’o’awesome from a Nerd Block package my husband received awhile back:
Ya, that’s right…a paper-box Star Wars play set.
Y’know, if only my old-school paper dolls where made this well…I wouldn’t have made them have an “accident” and disappear.
No tearing of paper when punching the images out…no glue, no tape and no scissors make my still-post-festing-head happy.
Like, “Happy.”, happy.
So, as the rain keeps sporadically (yet at the precise moment after a streak of sunshine makes you think you can escape your four-walled prison)…I get to choose to play the final duel, or the carbonite freezing chamber scenes.
Maybe I make them up.
Maybe a lil’ bit’o’awesome after a run-over by unexpected emotions this week was just what this girl needed. \m/
