As a former Lego enthusiast myself, I am left speechless at the idea that someone will get paid to play with Lego's all day --- no, I take that back, work with Lego's all day (notice the last job requirement posted). Growing up with an older brother who received Legos for Christmas, birthday, Easter, and everyday in between, I of course had to have my own Lego sets, so I collected the pink ones :) No surprise, huh?? Pastel pink, green, yellow with little bunches of flowers to decorate outside my Lego homes.

I'm halfway tempted to apply for this job...I mean how cool would it be to first of all have the title of "Lego Specialist", but secondly, I would make my business cards out of Legos :)
