A Chip off the ole Atomic Disintegrator

You may recall that Gapetto is a HUGE COLLECTOR OF JUNK

I just try to deal with it.

his birthday I organized the project room - it took me about 
24 hours I would say. I even had Gapetto teach me what some 
of the stuff was so that I could organize it properly ie:

'What the heck is this?'

'You really want to keep this?'

'Go get me a fishing tackle box and more storage boxes STAT!'

Oh, and I guess I ordered him around a little bit too. But 
he was totally grateful and said it was the best Birthday gifty 
he'd ever gotten.

So his friend tells him about this Ray Gun Contest. Whoever 
makes the best Ray Gun gets a nifty 1:1 scaled Atomic Disintegrator 
Pistol! (Huh?) 

I mean who wouldn’t enter that contest?

Did I mention that Gapetto has a Vast Ray Gun Collection? 
Some were even purchased with out his darling wife's knowledge. 

So the chance to acquire a replica 1:1 scaled Atomic Disintegrator 
Pistol AND make not just one (no, that wouldn’t due atall) but 
two ray guns had him salivating all over the place.

He spent A LOT of time working on them – probably more 
time working on them than I spent cleaning the project room. 

The project room formerly know as CLEAN...

He finished the night of the 4th. They were due early on the 5th.

Then he had his very own Mini-Me model for him - The Bunny Rabbit.

This is the Momentum Particle Ray Gun that did not win. 
Not even with that cute little boy modeling. 

Ah, but the one that DID win - the other one Gapetto made
[The Tesla Directed Energy Weapon] - now that one is extra fancy...

Now I want you to take a look at this child...

A serious chip off the old block - remember Halloween?

As for what I think of all of this - check out the contest page. 
You may just see a comment from one Merrily Down The Stream...

Those are so freaking fabulous! Oh, if I could live your life with such creativity. I especially love your young mail model. Can he marry one of my girls?

And here I was thinking: "Wow. Russ has such a youthful quality about him"...


cheers for the linkage, and yes, I thought the pic of the MomentumParticleBeam-pose was nigh-cute too :)

Looks like your hubby is a very creative guy. Most creative folks are disorganized. But, they know where everything is in that heap of disorganization. Congrats to him on he win.
