Tomb Raider Geek Out...

The past week has left me so exhausted. Moving to college each year was cake compared to what I am going through in order to prepare for this move to Virginia. But oh well I have made time to post a little blog tonight before the 3 hour long haul tomorrow. I wanted to share what I consider to be the best addition to my new apartment. But first a little exposition. ; )

Most people know that I am a huge fan of Angelina Jolie as well as the Tomb Raider video game series. But they might not know that I am also an avid collector. Collector of what you might ask? My true geek nature is about to be revealed. I started collecting stamps in the 5th grade and stuck with it through out high school. I haven't been able to keep up with it much since then.

I started collecting Angelina memorabilia in the 7th grade and have never stopped. I have pretty much every major magazine that has ever featured an Angelina cover (all in plastic sleeves of course). I have a promotional garter from Original Sin. I also have all the Tomb Raider action figures (never opened of course).

I am also a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer collector (I have the limited edition board game that I have only played a total of 5 times on special occasions in order to keep it in mint condition). This is only the tip of the Buffy iceberg. So you get the picture that I am a die hard collector? Below is a picture of what I consider to be the pride and joy of my Angelina collection. I look forward to displaying it prominently in my new apartment.

How many people can say they have a larger then life cardboard cutout of Angelina Jolie in their living room? And did I mention that I have two of them? One is for general public display and I have the other one carefully preserved. Hi I am Leslie, and I am a geek.

Hey Leslie! Saw that you are a fan of the Tomb Raider video games as well, and wanted to share a good guide with you ( http://www.gamesradar.com/wii/tomb-raider-anniversary/faq/g-200705151030926069/c-251266 ). I've used it for the Anniversary game a couple times when I got stuck. Hope this can be of use.

Take care!

Melissa,

Thank you for the link to the game guide. Out of curiosity how did you find my blog? Have you played the new Tomb Raider: Underworld? It is on my Amazon.com wish list and I was curious to know another gamer’s thoughts on it. Take care and I hope to hear from you again soon.
