invisible be@rbrick, invisible me

Now you see me,
now you don't!
Hear from me,
no, you won't.

Will fly away
to feed my mind,
A short adventure
I hope to find.

Away from home
and my laptop, too,
Might stop blogging
for a week or two!

I'll miss the sched
when blogs are awarded,
But I might get lucky
so I'll send a proxy.

Invisible man,
that's what I'll be
just for a while...
Hope you'll miss me. :-)

The Invisible Be@rbrick (above right) is based on the lead character of the 1933 movie, The Invisible Man. Adapted from H.G. Wells' 1897 science fiction novella, the film is about a scientist who theorizes that if a person's refractive index is changed to exactly that of air and his body does not absorb or reflect light, then he will not be visible. He successfully carries out this procedure on himself, but cannot become visible again, becoming mentally unstable as a result.*

The Be@rbrick is part of a 5-piece set called Universal Studios Monsters commissioned by Toys R Us, the international toy store chain. Others in the set are Dracula, Creature. Metaluna Mutant, and Wolf Man.
