Lego My Leg-O!


I hope y'all are having a fabulous week. My week's been pretty fair thus far. I saw an AMAZING production of "God of Carnage" over the weekend and I was a social creature and watched movies with a friend. YAY for doing things! I don't know about you guys, but the weather by me SUCKS... this is the second straight week of rain every day. In other words, when I'm not making a conscious effort to be a social creature I am in bed with Glenn the heatpack (yup, that sounds dirty).

Helen and Angel have had an eventful week thus far. They were groomed and got their summer puppy cuts. Helen will probably never forgive us. Angel thinks she looks thinner now, and uses that as an excuse to demand more treats. The piggies have also had an event week. They realized I periodically hide salad around their cage and someone switched their round food bowl to an oval food bowl. You'd think that wouldn't matter, but it confused the daylights outta them. The piggies also got peppers (one of the best foods for pigs, apart from lettuce) so they are all chubby and content.

Moving on, I saw this awesome video before and I need to share it with y'all...
SHE MADE A PROSTHETIC LEG OUTTA LEGOS! OH MY FREAKING GOD THAT'S AWESOME!!! On an unrelated note, I think her tattoos are awesome as well.

The video got me thinking... what would I do if I were in that situation? Oh if I ever lost my legs... *starts singing "Moonshadow" and wanders away from the computer* hmm... maybe I'd get a peg leg and dress like a pirate 24/7. OR maybe I'd find a bunch of "Lisa Frank" stickers all over my prosthetic. Needless to say, I'd make sure my new leg looked shnazzy. Maybe I'd pull a Frida Kahlo, putting jingle bells all over my fabulous leg. Hey... if ya got it... flaunt it.

Not gonna lie... I spent a good long while thinking what I'd do if I ever lost a leg. I did also think about what would happen if I lost an arm. The answer there was simple... go all "Walking Dead" and duct tape a big ass knife to it. Yup... just go full Merle.

And that ladies and gentlemen is how Crippie spent her night because I was really too uncomfortable to do much else!

So what about you guys? What would you do if you found yourselves in that situation? Do you have a prosthetic limb? Did you pimp it out?

Crippie's Tippie - SAVE YOUR LEGOS! They might come in very handy one day.

  1. OMG - That is awesome. Hey if you have to lost a limb, why not go all out. I have to give that girl all the credit in the world. Now me, I'd probably snivel and dry up!. She's an inspiration, and so are you. Maybe I'd better shop the garage sales again for legos! This week we'll be taking care of our daughter's gerbils - cutest little things - well also take care of their two cats. Happy 4th.

  2. If I lost my arm, which trust me I have asked my doctor to amputate it, I would make it like the walking dead but even more awesome and have my cellphone built into my forearm. I have a blog request. How does your crippledness affect your personality?
