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!
In case you want to know more, here are fifteen things about me (I know, it doesn’t compare to Admin’s 100):
- I have approximately 160 LEGO minifigures.
- My favorite LEGO theme is Ninjago, followed by Mixels. Other than that, I generally get random sets, often for the unique accessories and bricks!
- I collect Kai (Ninja of Fire) minifigures – so far I’ve got all the different versions!
- I have lived in Chile, South America, for the past six years.
- I know English, Spanish, and am learning Koine Greek (aka. “Common Greek” – at least it was common a couple thousand years ago!)
- to check them out in my flickr gallery!
- I didn’t
- I have been to 5 countries – if you count just having been in the airport in Panama and Peru.
- I have read the Bible over ten times.
- I was home-schooled all the way through high-school.
- I play the flute, piano, and a touch of violin (you know; squeak, squeak, squawk, squawk).
- I have about 1 cubic foot of LEGO (more like 1.2…). Maybe it doesn’t sound like much – but compare it to the volume of an average 4×2 stud LEGO brick.
- I never stopped playing with LEGO for more than a few days.
- I’ve been to 29 of the 50 States.
- I do 100 push-ups routinely.
- I am the oldest of eight siblings – so far…
- I’ve been to LEGOLAND Florida!
- I love building LEGO MOCs (My Own Creations), and you’re welcome just choose 17 randomly – there is a reason – it’s my age!
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 pop in frequently, so hang around!

Nice to have you, Geneva! Always love your posts! 😀
Cool, you can speak 3 languages!
Well, I can’t exactly speak greek yet – besides that Koine Greek is a dead language, so I can’t really have a normal conversation! 😉
LOL! That’s funny! I guess you could talk to old Greek statues. Maybe they would talk back. 🙄
BTW, I do know that some people do speak dead languages, like Latin, Sanskrit and others. Some folks are really into this stuff.
He He. . I don’t think they would talk amd I’m not sure I’ll ever get that close anyways! The thing about it being a dead language ia that there are no words for a lot of modern things! 😉 I suppose I could learn how to say hello (though I don’t know how yet! 😉 )
That’s a good point about not having the right words; but I’m sure you can get around it; like computer = box with light-up pictures, little buttons on a tray that you can press and a small statue of a mouse you move around… 🙄
He He. . . it would make for a somewhat complicated conversation! But after all, anybody who sepeaks that kind of Greek would probably know another language. . . although not nexicarialy Englilsh or Spanish so I guess it might come in handy someday! 😉
I speak some Latin 😀
Wow! 😉 The nice thing about latin is it’s simmilar in many ways to Spanish – so I can often read it (although I can’t speak it 😉 )!
Wow! I’m homeschooled and a Christian too!
same here. There are a lot of us. we should conquer the world…. 🙂 😉
🙄 nice. what would be the new rules? you must have lego in your house and at least look at the brick blogger everyday for updates?
If those were the only rules I don’t think people would mind. . . 😉
hmm. thats probably true 🙄
Cool. Its good to see lts of people know good languages. I know English, Spanish, French, Hindi, Tamil, and Sanskrit. I am from India!!
Jay, you could probably easily pick up Portugese as well as you already speak Spanish and French! 😉
Which language do you use for thinking? 🙄
Wow! That’s a lot of languages. And I’m sure you could learn portugues easy – I can actually understand a good bit myself, and I just know spanish! 😉
It is!!! Too bad I only know one!!! 😆
( My family is trying to learn French though.)
I was homeschooled too, and the oldest of five. 😉
I’m the oldest of two!!! 😆
Hmmm. . . I was the oldest of five too 😆 😉
Wow!! All of your posts are about Ninjago!!! 😯 You must like it A LOT!!!
I do 😉 😉 😆 I don’t htink I’ve bought anything but it and minifigures since it came out!
No seris Minifigs???
it and minifigs – I mean minifigs from the series, of course! 😉
I’ve got about 150-200 minifigures- I’ve never really counted them! Most of them are LEGO City minifigs, because I am OBSESSED with the City theme!
Hmm. . . I like lego city too, but not as much as Ninjago 😉 I’m not sure what theme I have most minifigures from – probably the minifigure series 😉
Are you christian? If youve read the bible there’s a reason right? If you are, are you catholic, baptist, protestant…
I’m a protestant presbyterian 😉 😉
BTW, Admin, could you update that part? I’ve read the bible 9 times now 😉
Sorry, I meant tht I’ve read it 8 times 😉 😉 Not to nine yet!
All right, updated! 😀
ive never heard of that. if you dont mind, can you tell me a teensy bit about protestant presbytarian?
Presbyterian refers to the form of church govenment – governed by a presbytery composed of elders (the pastor is also considered an elder). Protestant is a christian (as opposed to the roman catholics who also consider themselves christians) – but you probably knew that. Presbyterians are differnet from baptists in that they baptize infants, and believe that the moral law (ten comandments) are still applicable, not just the ones reiterated in the New Testament. Okay, that’s about all I’ll go into the subject. Hope that gives you some idea of what a presbyterian is! 😉 Oh, and you can of course be a liberal presbyterian or a biblical presbyterian (I’m a biblical presbyteran). All those differences can get kind of complicated 😉
baptist dont baptise enfants. you only get baptised when you decided you want to follow God. It’s sort of a sign that you want to follow Him and you tell the world. I know that cause I’m baptist. 😀 and proud of it
I know they don’t baptize infants (that’s kind of where they got the name 😉 ). In a presbyterian church you make a profession of faith and that’s the sign that you want to follow God. And of course, only the infant’s of church members are baptized. If you haven’t been baptized yet, then you will be when you make a profession of faith. 😉
thanks for the info
I’m thinking about learning Elvish….. 🙂
LOL that would be cool! i wrote a paragrah in elvish once it had something to do with going hunting and getting drunk 😆
You are awesome! I am home schooled have 7 sisters and brothers. My favorite theme is Ninjago (Other than Lego Lord of the Rings) I am trying to collect all of zane.
Thanks! 😉 That’s one more sibling than me! 😉 I like zane too; I actually am pretty close to having all of him, the one I’m missing is DX 🙁 I’m only missing ZX for Cole, and I’m planning on getting it as soon as I have $40 cash – yeah, that might be a while! 😉
My friend is absolutly NUTS for Zane. We’re like fighting over who’s better, Cole or Zane 🙄 I say yes, they both have good points and bad points, Zane did this and Cole did that. But noooooo it’s Zane that’s better no matter what! Yes, Zane’s cool but chill, give Zane a break. 😀
do you have NRG Zane?
No, but I’m going to get it as soon as it’s avalible 😉 Zane is cool. I actually think I like him better than cole 😉 (but not better than Kai 😀 )
you like Kai? man, i was totally cringing in episode 10. Kai was so obsessed it was hilarious.
Yeah, it was hilarous, but I still like him best 😉 Zane. . . well, he was really cool in Rise of the snakes – but IMHO not in the first movie – plus, he’s a robot! As far as Jay is concerned, he’s awesome except that I don’t like Nya so much. Cole is just a little too plain, if you ask me. 😉
yeah. Well, still robots, technically i don’t think it’s ever really possible to make the robot think for himself. my laptop right now isn’t doing anything except what I tell it to do. Still, Zane was my favortie character cause he was weird and I liked it! 😀 Cole’s my favorite now
Yeah. I don’t think it would be possible to create something like Zane 😀 Cole’s my brother’s favorite too 😉
Zane is AWESOME! I was drifting torawds Cole today, ( I just became a Ninjago fan about yesterday or today), but after I saw episode 7 a round 6 hours ago I vote Zane!
well i think cole’s cute 😀
Yea, He’s probably my second favorite.
I think He’s my sister’s favorite Ninja. I think Her least favorite Ninjago character is Pythor.
( My sister is aubseywaubsey, she has the same gravatar as my old posts, due to a mess up, so if you see a post with a pic of a pink round thing, check the name of the author.
Yeah, I agree that Zane is awesome. Really I’ve almost changed my favorite ninja several times (never been that close to Cole though – I think it’s because I don’t like black as much 😉 ). But I always go back to Kai – maybe more because I’m determined to stick to my original favorite 😉 My least favorite character – Hmmm. . . actually, it’s probably Nya. Not that I don’t like her, just not as much as everyone else 😀
You can’t not like one of the Ninjas.
Maybe not 😉 But Nya isn’t one of the Ninjas, is she? 🙂 But anyway, I just don’t like her as much.
me neither. its not that she’s… bad or i dont like her personality. shes just not as interesting as the others in my opinion.
I know chinese and a little russian :))
well actually im finishing a class in russian so i know a decent amount
However much you kneo you’re bound to know more than me! 😉 😀
i like star wars than ninjago than castle! and how old are u? im 12 😀 😀 😎 😎 🙂 🙂
Umm. . . I said I was 15 at the bottom. 😆 I actually don’t like SW that much, but I love Ninjago and I also enjoy castle! 😉
my fav ninja is jay!
hey i go to a prespitearian church to! (i dont know how to spell it) 😳
We have a lot in common…
1. I’m home schooled
2. I love Ninjago
4. I like writing!
3. I trying to read the bible a least once! (Even though thats not very in common…)
Oh, and you said you like Nerf Gun battles :-)! Do you like water gun battles?
Yeah 😉 But not in the middle of winter! 😆 Somehow my water guns always break 🙁
How long have you been writing for TBB?
Lets see. . . I do about one a week, although not always. So probably almost three months 😉
I like nerf battles to! I’m homeschooled to and I love it
Yah! I love it!
i am homeschooled and a Christian too! lego ninjago rocks!!!!!!!!!!!
on the top of youre page, is that a drawing of you or a picture?
I think it’s a picture!
Lets see. . .
This is what i said, I think:
Yes, it’s a picture. Needless to say I don’t really look like that – Admin Photoshopped it 😉
Admin, for some reason I can only see the brick blogger as it was several days ago. . . 😕
Do you mean some of the comments are missing?
Guys our server just crashed around noon today. TBB was reverted back to the 22nd. 🙁
Oh. . . 🙁 At least now I know I wasn’t just dreaming the last few days. . . 😉
In fact you were! The last few days were a dream only! TBB is proof for it! 🙄
BTW, I made some progress and reposted the article from the 23rd. Now I have to start working on the other ones. What a nightmare! 😥
Oh, and any of you had any really important comment, (like stories and stuff) I could recover them as I do have them saved in my email. 😉
No really important comments over here. . . I had been at 100 before though. . . 😉
You will be back there soon enough! 😉
LOL 😉 Especially if we keep this up 😆
BTW, did you get my really long reply to you’re long comment?? Or did that get erased before you saw it?
no i saw it!
Good. . . 😉
no i saw it 😉
BTW, did anybody else notice that zane said Nindroids couldn’t dream? What was the thing he did in episode 5? Maybe it qualified as a vision?? 😕
This is a very good point, and someone brought it up the other day. I can’t remember who it was, and I think it was one of those comments that disappeared. 🙁
It seems like it was my brother 😉
You guys are the undisputed experts on Ninjago! 🙄
He-He. . . Well, it was actually my mom’s observation. . . 😉
Could you get one of the article by the 27th (tomorrow) that would be wonderful!
27th?? Hmm. . . I thought you wanted it by the 28th. Don’t worry, I’ve already writen it, just need to get a couple pics. Is tomorrow moring OK? 😕 😉
Wonderful! I was just wondering if you could get it to me early!
Actually, it doesn’t take me that long to write an article. . . it’s more a matter of getting around to it! 😉
You should start commenting on Ninja of Ninjago (NON) to encourage others to start commenting also! (Your first article was a big hit!)
Ok, I’ll try 😉
Great! Thanks Geneva
Hey Geneva! Just letting you know that there are several comments on you page at NON so you may want to check them out! Plus you might want to subscribe to the posts and the comments on some posts! 😉 Thanks 😀
OK, I’ll check them out. . . 😉

Hey could u send in some posts to my website? 5000bricks.shutterfly.com
No geneva. U already post on mine 🙂
IDK. I do already do posts for two websites, so I’ve got plenty of writing to do! 😉
Well when you get the time. You can even send in stuff that is already on other sites.
Sure, just let me know 😉
How will I let you know?
Lets see. . . have admin send me your email adress, or she can send you mine.
KK Admin , just send mine to her please!
I got it 😉
BTW Admin, are the comments now divided up into 50 a page or so? It seems like there are more pages on everything now. . . 😀
Yeah, the developer I’m working with said that was a better setting for page-load. I’m just following the boss. 😉
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! 😀
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. 😉
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! 😀
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:
Then hit refresh. 🙂
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!
Thanks for the info! 😀
gid are you still on MLN?
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… 😛
Gid617,you have Lego ID on Lego.com? So do I! Its Masterj9067! ( I named it that because my name is Jordan 😉 )
Yeah, I’m gid617 (because my initials are… GMD…hmm)! 😉
Admin, just FYI, it seems like you have two of the same posts in the link section… 😉
Sorry about that. Just fixed it! 😉
Gid are you homeschooled? Cause i was looking on flicker and I saw your picture on the Homeschooled LEGO Builders
Yes, I’m homeschooled! In fact I post most of my MOCs in that group.
Hi gid617! I’m Meneldur and new to TBB. Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you as well! I’ve been reading your comments!
Yup! I’ve got a ton of them! 😉
Is that pic of you built out of Lego pieces, a mosaic?
No, Admin edited the original picture I sent her… I’m not good at building mosaics!
perchance are you a Christian? not trying to start a religious descussion, just curious =P, and whats this about Homeschooled LEGO builders? 0.0
Yes I am a Christian! 🙂
There are a lot of Homeschooled LEGO builders it seems!
psssstttt, its cuz we have so much extra time on our hands =P
😆 😀 (I prefer to think we’re more creative. 😛 )
I’ll build to that!
Eres de Chile? o viviste/vives ahí? 😛 yo soy de México 😛
I saw a fantastic job you did on turning the lego medieval blacksmith into an Inn, but I can’t find any instructions or the right video. Do these still exist? Also does it require many additional parts?
