Well, that's an exclusive club you've got...

It's sad when you get story ideas from your children...

So my son built a leaf pile house or fort, then decided to cut up a piece of paper and write out an invitation to the < name redacted> Club. He gave one to his little sister, who duly showed up at his "doorstep", invitation in hand, only to be rejected... my son pointed out to her that the invitation had already expired. In fact, it had expired before he gave it to her...she would have to travel back in time to use it! His club, apparently, is only for time-travelers...

And then there was the time at the playground when he claimed to be stealing all the gravity (using a merry-go-round). What, was he going to hold it all for ransom?

Oh well. I suppose he's going to be a supervillain when he grows up. This is the boy who got a remote control Dalek for his birthday last year. They really need to make "Doctor Who" themed LEGO sets. I mean, he did all right building a LEGO TARDIS (rectangular blue box) but a rectangular Dalek just looks so wrong. Cybermen figures would be awesome, too. Although my younger daughter would probably remove all the limbs and then we'd be left with Cyber heads on a Spiderman torso or something. I'd love to see a "Doctor Who" LEGO computer game, too. Come on! If they have a "Batman" game, why can't they have a "Doctor Who" game?

After googling: I see people did put together some credible DW critters. Using Star Wars parts? Is that an R2D2 head on the Dalek? Still. They need to make a real DW LEGO set! And game!
