Unboxing Arcade Block & Valentine’s Marathon! :)

Can you believe January 2015 is over? I’m actually pretty happy because this month has been dragging on forever.

Maybe its because its so busy at work or its because I’m really sick right now but regardless, its over with and we’re moving onto February in a few hours (or maybe you’ve already stepped into February).

For the last month or so, I’ve been obsessing over gaming videos on YouTube.  Its actually one of the reasons why the whole posting, watching movies and reviewing movies has been really slow.  I just needed a little break, I guess.  But, if you don’t watch gaming videos, well, there are a few of them which are absolutely hilarious to watch. Now, I’m totally tapping into my nerdy side. I’ll probably do a post on that eventually.

Which leads us to our first line of business.  Mostly because I landed on one of these unboxing videos a while back, I discussed it with my boyfriend and we decided to order the Arcade Block on a 3 month subscription just to see how it is.  You know, if we like what we get and all that.  Everyone seems to post unboxing videos so we sat together and did one.  My boyfriend doesn’t like me to film his face much and I’m ridiculously sick so its more of a shaky camera sweeping through what we got in the box.

Please excuse the nasal voice and clearing my throat, I was trying really hard to not cough.  Once I start, I won’t stop for a while…

Here’s the video:

I was going to edit this video but I just don’t have the brain power to do it right now.  Hopefully you’ll find it mildly entertaining because seriously, we totally loved what we got.

If you can’t see the video, here’s a picture of all the goodies in it:

Oh, and the boyfriend was wrong in the video (not 6 or 7 pieces), that certified Mega Bloks Halo thing had a whole lot of pieces and here’s what it looks like:

Honestly, I’m pretty excited about getting February’s Arcade Block now 🙂

Moving on… February being here tomorrow means Valentine’s marathon from February 1st to 14th.  Last year, I focused on Nicholas Sparks movies.  This year, I’m pretty much winging it.  I do have a general list written up and I’ll be hoping to post at least one review per day.  It’ll be mostly romantic comedies and maybe romance dramas.  I’ve been really neglecting those sorts of movies so I’m pretty happy about it. Especially since my brain on meds can only handle that.

I’m going to leave it at this now.  It sounds like the logical thing to do to relax a little with a rom-com and hopefully let my body rest and maybe feel better tomorrow.  This bug is pretty intense.

Review going up tomorrow, my friends! 🙂 Remember to drop by again.

What do you think about the Arcade Block and/or the unboxing video? What movies do you watch during Valentine’s?

  1. I understand what you mean, but January for me has been great! Two movies I recommend for you are: Safe Haven (2013), and Somewhere in Time (1980). Actually Somewhere in Time is a cult classic, but it is romantic. You should check both of them out. 🙂


      • I’ll give you some hints. It starts with Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour. Jeannot Szwarc directed it. It is based on a novel called Somewhere in Time, before it was called A Bid in Time. Richard Matheson wrote the novel, which became a movie in 1980.
