Biker Clogs

Important: Before we go anywhere, please drop me an email ASAP to let me know if you are or are not joining us for the trip to Thorpe Park on Sunday 19th October (see last week’s update for details).

This week we delved back into Simon’s infamous Lego box of delights.  The usual height, stability, length and strength challenges were livened up by a fantastic boat race challenge.  Take a look at the pictures – and be sure to look out for the annotations (no offence intended) and the Caption Competition picture.  My creativity is lacking a bit this week so I decided to let the anagram generator play with the words “Lego bricks” and see what it could come up with for the post title.  Here are my favourites:

Bilge Rocks
Gerbil Sock
Biker Clogs
Glob Sicker
Be Ricks Log
Be Sock Girl
Bi Clerks Go

And with that in mind, we need to check out the names of our newest members for decent anagram possibilities:

Yolanda Potter

Rotten Payload
Tadpole Notary
Detonator Play
A Rotated Pylon
A Droopy Talent
Adrenal Pot Toy
Panda Tyre Tool
Dopy Anal Torte
Altar Toed Pony
(and way too many others to choose from)

Nick Bosdet

Bidet Conks
Bodkin Sect
Knob Edicts
Not Bed Sick
(and some which I can’t re-publish)

Anyway, back to the Lego for a moment.  Perhaps our next Lego activity should be a challenge to build something as impressive as this Church.  That would get the creative juices flowing.  For further inspiration, check out the projects at this site.  And finally, take a look at possibly the least appropriate use for Lego!

This week we also enjoyed some Carrot Cake, sponsored by the extended Rew family and their inability to communicate and organise themselves (everyone took a cake to a family gathering, because no-one spoke to anyone else), and some Jelly Belly Beans brought along and generously shared by Yolanda.  Check out this link and if you’re one of the first 100 people to visit you could get a free Jelly Belly Sample Pack.  Or if you’re in too much need and can’t take the risk you can buy them here.

Chris led devotions and used this poem to encourage us to consider how important we are to God:

    I’ve just applied for my free sample of Jelly Belly beans – and promise to share them at Amicus when they arrive. Click the link above to get yours too.

    I’m sure we can come up with a Jelly Belly based Amicus activity…
