Dave!After spending most of my evening trying to find out why I couldn't post my entry yesterday, I finally figured out that something had broken with my blogging app. Once I trashed everything and started over, my blog was suddenly working again.

I then had the sad duty of posting the most tragic chapter of "A Very Lego Holiday Tale" yet... if you haven't read it, you may want to skip this entry and go there first. Take a box of tissues with you.

Since I already wasted away a couple hours fixing my blog today, I don't much feel like writing anything tonight. I thought that I had a solution when I dropped by Kazza's blog because she had a "Fifty Questions" meme, but then I realized I had already done it.

Oh well. Let's see what comes out of the Lego Advent Calendar today. I'm almost afraid to look...

CHAPTER 17: I'll Be Drunk for Christmas.
LEGO ADVENT CALENDAR TOY OF THE DAY: Keg of Italian Beer with Tap.
In a horrible turn of events, the evil Lego Buzz has killed Barky the Dog, faithful companion to our hero, Lego Dave...
"Barky! Barky, no!" wails Lego Dave, his heart breaking. "You can't die!"
"Dude, I'm sorry about your dog" says the construction worker sympathetically. "But that saw-weilding maniac is still in here somewhere... we've got to go."
"I don't care!" says Lego Dave, sobbing uncontrollably now. "Just leave me here."
"Can't do it buddy." Mr. Construction Worker replies solemnly. "You saved my life, now it's my turn to save yours."
Sticking his severed hand in his back pocket, the construction worker starts dragging Lego Dave towards the rear exit of the garage. Several nervous minutes later, they finally find their way to the back door. Leaning on each other for support, they continue onward to the hospital.
"This is my stop" says Mr. Construction Worker. "Will you be okay?"
"Not without Barky" replies Lego Dave, his voice laced with despair. "You take care."
Without another word, Lego Dave turns to leave, his head hanging in sadness. Lego Buzz is out there somewhere, but he doesn't care. Nothing matters anymore.
Stumbling along in a daze, Lego Dave finds his way to a seedy bar in a bad neighborhood at the edge of town. Wanting nothing more than to dull the pain of his loss, he orders a drink. Then another. Then another. But drinking one glass at a time just isn't enough. He makes his way to the storage room and finds a keg of fine Italian beer to drown his sorrows with...
Lego Holiday Seventeen
The next morning, Lego Dave awakes a broken man. His mind fuzzy, his life in ruins, he drags himself up from the floor and wanders the streets aimlessly. As his head starts to clear, a single thought starts forming in his brain. One all-consuming thought that burns like a wildfire. One thought...
"Revenge" Lego Dave mutters, almost a whisper. "I will avenge you Barky. I WILL AVENGE YOOOOOOUUU!!"
Will Lego Dave avenge his canine companion? Will he have his revenge?

    hehe, a lego keg?

  2. SHEVY says:

    Only a Coug would get off on the Italian Keg, well any KEG for that matter.

    I’m still feeling for Lego Dave losing his only tried and true friend. Poor, poor Lego Dave having to drown his sorrows in Italian Beer

    REVENGE is the only answer

  3. Anthony says:

    Barky did not die in vain. Revenge i say.

  4. Harold says:

    I keep waiting for a “Lego Tiny Tim” character to emerge from this great Lego Holiday epic…or have I just watched too many viewings of the “Srooge” on TV this season?

  5. jenny says:

    I know Lego Dave is upset, but I just don’t think that drinking himself into oblivion is the answer. Barky would have wanted him to do the right thing and focus on some major Lego a$$ kicking.

  6. Sigh, I knew it’d be Barky when you said it was sad….

    So what was today’s advent item supposed to be?

  7. sandra says:

    On the up-side, I haven’t done the 50 questions thing…so maybe you can feel good about helping someone else during the holiday season?

    And Barky…oh, Barky…

  8. kazza says:

    hrm I’ve already done it too.. *sigh*

  9. Jackie says:


    No one in Chicago calls that thing “Cloud Gate.” It’s called THE BEAN.

    Love the Lego stories.


  10. Kevin says:

    Ah alcohol. This is really starting to resemble the typical American holiday celebration.

  11. melina says:

    hi dave! is a lego keg a “legger”?

    you WILL have revenge! this is the best advent adventure evs. too..sorry i haven’t been here in a while…been lovin’ my jury duty life.

  12. Art says:

    Drink LD, DRINK! There’s no problem so big that it can’t be cured by drinking a leg.

  13. SJ says:

    What the hell kind of “toy” is this Advent calendar, anyway?

    Revenge is a dish best served cold.
