As I noted some weeks back, I've found much value in the meditative powers of building things with Lego. A couple of days ago I splurged and picked up the Palace Cinema set, mostly so that I can put it in the theatre room when it's complete. Tonight I managed to finish the first floor of this nearly 2,200 piece set. I'm quite charmed by the concession stand, which features a soda fountain, popcorn machine and various confections. The engineers who design these sets are geniuses.
