Okay, I had a nice, long post typed out during my lunch break at work, but I failed to save it before I hit the 'submit' button and it was lost, as I had evidently been logged out due to inactivity. That's pretty much the story of my life.
First, the name: Boss Maroni is a mob boss in Gotham City (played by Eric Roberts in The Dark Knight
). I'm a huge Batman fan and years ago, I managed the local comic book and gaming store. A group of friends/customers started calling me Boss Maroni, (Maroni is similar to my real last name). On various forums, I go by Lee (my real name), ZombLee (horror forums) and BossMaroni (anyone else play Combat Arms?).
I've been a LEGO fan since my first set in the mid-70's and a Star Wars fan since 1977.
I'm a few weeks shy of turning 41 and have a 7 year old son (known to my friends as 'the LeeSpawn') who lives across town with him mom. Though my Dark Age ended many years before he was born, his love of all things LEGO (and Star Wars) has really encouraged me to spend far more than I should on various LEGO sets.
I live in the Hoth-like environs of Wisconsin and hate temperatures about 70 degrees F. I'm a diehard fan of the Green Bay Packers. I'm a hopeless geek for Star Wars, comic books, LEGO, role-playing (the real
kind, with dice) and all things zombie-related. I work as a warranty claims administrator for a wood door manufacturer, which is a lot less fun than it sounds (and yes, I realize that it doesn't sound fun at all).
