I'm home! It was a nice journey back home, but as always long and tiring. Today I feel much better, although I woke up at 6 am for no reason whatsoever except that my brain hates me. Tati is still sleeping (like any sane person would be), so I thought I could kill the time before breakfast uploading pictures to my blog because why not?
Yesterday I had a bunch of packages from Amazon waiting for me, lots of wonderful stuff (the Fawlty Towers
boxset, Rise of the Guardians
bluray, Hawkeye My Life As A Weapon
), and this magnificent thing, that I ordered five days before Easter and that arrived here in two days straight from the USA, although I chose normal shipping. What the hell. You should have seen my face when I opened it. Anyway, lots of pictures under the cuts, prepare for the nerdy awesomeness. :D
It's the Marvel Phase One
boxset! I ordered it back in July, then they cancelled it because of some legal quarrel I didn't understand, then after months I cancelled my order, and the same afternoon they re-opened the orders, with a discount for those who had the old order. I cursed myself and forgot about it. Then last week I saw it was about to be released, at last, at the same price of the old boxset, so I thought "what the hell" (which is how I make most decisions) and pre-ordered it again. And apparently they shipped the new orders first, because some friends of mine in the USA, with the old order, are still waiting. Amazon, I shall never understand thee.( More pictures under the cut. )
I would like to point out that among other stuff I have the original plans for the first Iron Man suit, the one Tony built in a cave and that he had to split through various transparent sheets so the terrorists wouldn't know what he was building. And Steve's picture of Peggy, that he cut from a newspaper. Even Thor's hospital bracelet-thingie! You have no idea the level of squeeing Tati and I reached when we opened these folders. :D( ...and more! )
Tati with the glowing Tesseract. It comes with batteries and all, but for the life of me I couldn't turn it on. On the instructions it said to tap it firmly against my palm, but it's not a toy, it's a collectable! What if I broke it??? Then Tati tried, she tapped it with two fingers, and it came alive. I tried again, nothing. She took it back, and turned it on again. Thus, I declared her to be Loki in disguise, because what the double hell?!
Got to go now, I have to upload a bunch of stuff to Sherlock (and it also works with my tv, we used an HDMi cave I had forgotten in a drawer and watched the new, amazing, Adventure Time
episode on my tv, the future is now), make breakfast, scratch on Tati's door until she wakes up and feeds me, you know, the usual. :D
