I’ve been suffering from an extreme case of blog procrastination. If this blog was a small child, well-meaning strangers would frown at its unsuitable footwear and thin arms.
But hooray! All the planets are aligned, the Interweb is working, and my hands are warm enough to type.
Quite a few people stumble here by searching for Lego. So to feed up my poor malnourished blog, here are some amusing Lego pictures. Does anyone ever get tired of cute Lego? Not me.
Grrrr. No idea what this Lego minifig is. Some poor man trapped in a crocodile suit?
We had a hard time trying to describe what ‘a hippy’ was to the kids.
Proof that I was in New York
I did make an ambitious claim several weeks ago that I would put up some pictures from my NY mini-break. Here they are:
The ancient Chinese culture and traditions on display in Chinatown.
The 9/11 memorial at sunset.
It’s a croissant cat!!
Central Park. It looks fake, doesn’t it? But it really was this pretty…
At The Met I found out that mid-18th century French porcelain could be terrifying.
So, the blog child-beast has been fed. And I can happily procrastinate away for another short while.
Here’s one I wrote earlier
Lego love for all the family. It really really hurts when I step on hard, sharp, pointy bits of Lego. I suffer through strange foot indentations because Lego is wonderful.
Too lazy for words. Greetings from New York. I’ve just popped over for a high-end mini-break with husband.

Greetings from New York. I’ve just popped over for a high-end mini-break with husband.
If I was a proper blogger, I would be photographing my food and posting pictures up with tasting notes. Or reviewing the toenail art of the woman lounging at the bar.
But the good camera is broken and we forgot to unlock our mobile phones, so we are without Wandering Web. We are officially free to just go about tourist-ing without sending out a real-life feed of NY delights.
Use the power of your mind to imagine that the following were posted over the last couple of days:
- The air is so dry, I think my eyeballs are shrinking.
- Seared octopus with Umbrian chickpeas, red onion, pickled currants. (Il Buco).
- Uptown is not necessarily uphill.
- Gold brocade skinny jeans. (Admired, but did not buy).
- Gorging ourselves on back-to-back episodes of The Newsroom.
- 9/11 Memorial was perfect. Black pools of textured water – corrugated, smooth and flowing.
- If I say “Can I eat that here, please?” he will look at me blankly and reply “To go?”
- Oooooh, my bunions are aching.
- $400 is too much for a toy baby standing reindeer. (ABC carpet and home).
This post was the blog equivalent of ‘freshening up’ a stale bread roll in a microwave. A more nutritionally-balanced post will appear when I’m back.
