Greetings from Texas

MegtheCatMegtheCat Houston, TXMember Posts: 500
Hello, my name is Meg and I'm a Lego fan, more precisely, an AFOL. I've been reading the forum for awhile now, and finally decided it's time to come out of the shadows so to speak.

I can't say that I really had a "dark ages" as much as my parents did an excellent job at keeping the very existence of Lego out of my consciousness for most of my childhood. My sister and I had maybe 2 smallish basic building sets and that's it. I've no idea whatever became of those bricks, much to my dismay.

My first adult purchase was #7194 Yoda which I found on clearance at Target years back. But my dark ages continued until The Lego Movie turned me on to collecting minifigures. One day last August, one of the sellers I was buying from recommended I would be better off buying sets. He was right - building is fun! 

In just over a year of buying sets I am already facing space issues (due to my being a bit of a pack rat), but finding Brickset has been a blessing because I can keep track of my collections much more easily. And also find more stuff I want;p!

    Welcome! I'm guessing you aren't an actual real cat! My childhood cat used to bat my fabuland figures around and whizz them under the sofa and then spend ages trying to get them out  again. Anyway welcome (oh I already said that).

    Welcome to the forums Meg! if you are into minifigs there are always trade threads and what not for adding to your collection.

    Thanks for the nice welcome!

    @bookmum - cat "lady" would possibly be more apt, though I only have 2 cats. One cat wants to eat the Lego and the other just wants to play with the pieces.

    Welcome @MegtheCat - I can sympathize with your space issues :-S

    Welcome! I'm sort of new myself. Hope your cat knows to eat only small, round pieces. ;-)

    @buildalot -  Worryingly he tried for the Lego baby I had in a Ziploc bag. But really the worst he's done is knock my quinjet off a not very stable display area. I may still be missing some pieces even after checking under the furniture.

    Wow. Just like his bigger brothers in the serengeti going for baby gazelles. Scary thought indeed. >_<
