The League has Spoken: Holy Grails and White Whales

league of extraordinary bloggers logo This was another epic week for the League–I laughed, I cried, I read the posts again and again. This week’s topic asked what about your collecting holy grails and white whales, and the responses illustrate how a single little object can have a big impact on one’s life. I especially enjoyed reading about childhood adventures filled with excitement and loss, and I hope as a result of these posts, at least one of us League members will finally be able to track down his or her white whale…

This week’s responses were too much fun. Someone needs to hold me in check or else I might have this as a recurring topic EVERY week!

Around the League

Some other things that caught my eye on League member sites this week…

  • Mike at the Sexy Geek’s House of Swag has been adding to his collection of autographed memorabilia.
  • Reis has so many great toys, and I love these windup robots.
  • Ashley at Life with Fandom was sitting on the other side of the table at a recent toy show.
  • Listen to the latest Nerd Lunch podcast and hear the “Nerd Heritage” of fellow League members, Paxton and CT.
  • …and I found out what 500 board games looked like at a local consignment shop.


Remember, to stay a League member in good standing, you should add some links to your fellow League members in your post to help spread the love. I’ll post the new topic later today!

If you’re playing along at home and want to join the League, all you need is a love of pop culture and a blog. Come join the fun, and tell your friends!
