With my son everything is superheroes. Batman, Green Lantern, JLA, The Avengers, X-Men, I can go on and on.. But my little girl right be Christmas time she asked me if there were any girl heroes? Told her yes there are many of them! Then she answered back with a question.. Where?!
That’s when my hunting spree for superhero girl action figures. It took sometime, but I managed to find a bunch of them. Catwoman, Dove, She Hulk, Black Widow, Spirder-woman, Supergirl, God at least 5 different X-Men figures.
To help her along, I also got her a few comics to show her this Superhero World.
So I started teaching my little hobbits Alhambra. Now keep in mind Lilly is 5 years of age and Jackson is only 3. For their first time they did REAL WELL. Lilly figured it out rather quickly, Jax took a few turns to put it all together.
But in the end it was Jackson winning with a 142 points with the second longest wall of 18. Both me and Lilly tied with 141 points, Lilly had the shortest wall with 9 and mine came in at 20. It was nice to have a REAL tabletop night with them. Something that wasn’t Clue or Sorry…. Monopoly jr………..
For those who don’t know. In Alhambra, players are acquiring buildings to be placed within their Alhambra complex.
On a player’s turn, a player may take money from the open money market, purchase a building from the building market, or engage in construction and re-construction projects with buildings that have been placed in the player’s reserve. The game rewards efficiency, as when a player purchases a building from the market for the exact amount of money, the player may take another turn.
Players with the most buildings in each of the six building types score in each of the scoring phases, and points are awarded for players’ longest external “wall” section within their complex. The game ends when the building market can no longer be replenished from the building tile supply, and there is a final scoring, whereupon the player with the highest score wins.
I miss the city…. Always be a city kid, miss the life and being creative. I miss the crazy people you run into. Or telling a pop culture joke and having someone get it. I’ve had my fill of redneck country bumkins….. I need to change things up and fast, I feel like I’m starting to drown. No matter how hard I kick and swim, I can’t seem to make back on top to where I was at.
It seems that nothing as gone right from day one. Broken promises, stabbed in the back, broken heart, lost love ones, losing friendships, fail relationships… Being BROKE, living from pay check to pay check. I haven’t done ANY FORM OF ART in over 3 years. My biggest fear is never changing, never coming out of this slump that I was put into.
I’m tired… I never felt this way before.. I’m always tired now a days. Don’t want to leave, don’t want to see anyone. The idea of being social makes me twitch and second guess myself. Forget dating haha!! God, now there is some second guessing going on there. I think this past year with everything that as happen to me. Has really messed things up more than I thought it did…. I know I need to change, my problem is I don’t know where to start.
So I was going through some old stuff & things and found this little gem.
Sweet! I had forgotten that I pick this up a few years back. Mister Frederick Charles “Freddy” Krueger. This is number 1 of 30,000 made, the plastic wrap was all messed up. So I had to take it out and place it into a new one. But when I took Freddy out I felt a button on him chest! No way he talks?!?! Flipped him over and find the voice box with a on and off switch. Is funny.. When got this figure, I thought it was just a basic doll of Freddy. No where on the package says that he talks. He says 3 things. 1) that classic Freddy laugh 2) “Come to Freddy.” 3) “Ever play skin the cat?” Hearing Robert Englund voice made me feel like a little kid again lol. Growing up had odd hero’s haha, in am 80’s child need I say more?
