Contributor page: Geneva D. – gid617

LOCATION: Chile, South America
NICHE: LEGO Ninjago

My real name is Geneva D. (that’s not all of it, of course) but I go by the name gid617 not just here, but also on other LEGO websites. I have been collecting LEGO ever since my siblings and I first got a LEGO bucket when I was six (I’m a TFOL now). We quickly divided up the minifigures, but for a while all the LEGO bricks were shared – until one day, when I had the brilliant idea to grab some and call out, “These are mine!”  And it worked!  :D

In case you want to know more, here are fifteen things about me (I know, it doesn’t compare to Admin’s 100):

  1. I have approximately 140 LEGO minifigures.
  2. My favorite LEGO theme is Ninjago, followed by minifigures.  Other than that, I just get random sets, mainly for the accessories – in fact, I have never bought a LEGO set worth more than $20!
  3. I have over 115 Ninjago cards, and I am trying to collect all of Kai’s – I have every single version (Normal, DX, Kendo, ZX, NRG) so far! :)
  4. I have lived in Chile, South America, for the past four years.
  5. I know English, Spanish, and am learning Koine Greek (aka. “Common Greek” – at least it was common a couple thousand years ago!)
  6. I have been to 5 countries – if you count just having been in the airport in Panama and Peru.
  7. I have read the Bible nine times.
  8. I am home-schooled.
  9. I am an orange-stripe in American Karate.
  10. I have about 1 cubic foot of LEGO (more like 1.09…).  Maybe it doesn’t sound like much – but compare it to the volume of an average 4×2 stud LEGO brick.
  11. I never stopped playing with LEGO for more than a few days.
  12. I have a LEGO ID: gid617 – and in case you were wondering, the 617 has no real meaning.
  13. I do 100 push-ups almost every day (not Sundays).
  14. I am the oldest of seven – so far…
  15. I didn’t just choose fifteen randomly - there is a reason - it’s my age! :cool:

And one more thing; in case you didn’t know, Geneva is a girl’s name – I’m a girl. If you would like to contact me, just ask Admin – or if you’d rather not, I’m on almost every day except Sundays, so hang around! ;)

IDK. I do already do posts for two websites, so I’ve got plenty of writing to do! ;)

Reply

Tobymacboy August 17, 2012 at 5:33 PM

Well when you get the time. You can even send in stuff that is already on other sites.

Reply

gid617 August 21, 2012 at 3:26 PM

Sure, just let me know ;)

How will I let you know?

Done! ;)

I got it ;)

Reply

gid617 September 4, 2012 at 9:29 AM

BTW Admin, are the comments now divided up into 50 a page or so? It seems like there are more pages on everything now. . . :D

Reply

admin September 4, 2012 at 12:11 PM

Yeah, the developer I’m working with said that was a better setting for page-load. I’m just following the boss. ;)

Reply

gid617 September 5, 2012 at 7:10 AM

Yeah, it does seem to load faster. The only unfortunate thing is that if you have the first page of comments in your favorites (or wherever) you have to hit next comment and wait for it to load like 5 times! :D

Reply

admin September 5, 2012 at 8:27 AM

Hm… yeah, there are plusses and minuses to everything. What you could do is instead of saving the comments page, just save the post itself, that way it will always load the latest page with the latest comments. ;)

Reply

gid617 September 7, 2012 at 7:24 AM

Yeah, I considered that. But my browser has a list of the most frequent pages, and for some reason it’s almost always the comments page and not the post! :D

Reply

admin September 7, 2012 at 9:08 AM

I think if you leave a comment your browser will save that page. But you can just delete the end of the address in the address bar and refresh the page – it will take you to the actual post page, with the freshest comments. ;)

So if you see something like this, delete the end part after the / starting from “comment-page…”

Until you only see this:
http://thebrickblogger.com/2012/09/2013-lego-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles/

Then hit refresh. :)

Hi,
Just wanted to let you know that all of the new LEGO Ninjago spinner sets & booster packs started showing up in stores in Nashville, TN last Tuesday.  I bought all 3 of the new spinners (9573 Slithraa, 9574 Lloyd ZX, & 9590 NRG Zane) at WalMart, & I also saw these sets at Toys R Us and Target.  The new booster packs (9556 Bytar & 9557 Lizaruu) are also available at these same retailers.  
I hope this info helps; my kids & I are big Ninjago fans, & I check your Ninjago site every day for news/updates!

gid617 August 27, 2012 at 9:13 AM

Thanks for the info! :D

gid are you still on MLN?

Reply

gid617 December 12, 2012 at 4:14 PM

I don’t really do anything, if that’s what you mean. In fact, I never did much, but I’ve pretty much compleatly stopped. It just takes up too much time that’s better spent, IMHO, in building. ;)
Oh, and sorry it took me so long to answer! I just check this every once in a great while… :P
