    @William_Townsley what are those massive CMF-bags? Is that promotional? I've never seen that.

    @SumoLego yes, you are obligated to build the city now, no two ways about it...

    @snowhitie There retail bags that shops hang up. I once transported 3 of them on a train for 4hrs. Not fun. They've been made for every CMF Line except the DFB Football figures

    Bought another 60 drawer parts cabinet, and another Sterilite bin to keep built Lego dust-free.

    I need to stop. My Lego collection has quadrupled in the last year (I started with about 40). I am out of room.

    Thinking about getting one of those Akro-Mills 64 drawer cabinets as my current bins are full. Sadly, I only have space for one, so rethinking my "LEGO closet" organization to fit another one.

    Nothing will happen anytime soon as I'll be in Orlando the first week of October for a company conference and the last week of October in Houston visiting my parents; also thinking about going to Portland in November to visit a friend.

    On the bright side, re-layout the "spare" room today to make room for a bookcase to display LEGO :-) ...need to order the bookcase though.

    I had to throw away my collection of Shop at Home catalogues from 1998 today. Sad times, but in honesty I don't even remember the last time I looked at them.
    I recycled my old catalogs, boxes and instruction manuals long ago. The boxes in particular were just taking up space and getting beat up.
    Got to enjoy a relaxing hour or so feeling for a couple S16 minifigs at the local LEGO store. Also, they had a bunch of leftover Nexo Knight minifigs they were giving away with the calendar coupon. So you get that and Lavaria for free! Not bad.
    A couple days ago, I was searching S16 packs for 2 hours at Target. Got 4 Babysitter, 7 Penguin Boy and 5 Banana Guy, and there's stuff to go back for.

    -

    Yesterday evening, I finally built #31044 Park Animals after getting it from [email protected] 2+ months ago. I bought it for the dog, but decided to build the ducks as well. I put those with the frog and lilypad from #30115 Jungle Boat, maybe I'll display them with my beach stuff if I ever get that back out.

    I had a very fun weekend...I went to the LEGO Store in San Antonio and bought mini figures (the ones you 'design' yourself). However, the highlight was yesterday. I was able to build #10232 Palace Cinema (thanks to @TheMaker37 for making it possible!), and I must admit, it kicked my butt, but I truly enjoyed it. Here's one photo (sorry for the quality) but I'll take more as I add something else to the set it...

    I already have it- it came in a job lot. My first thought was "Easy $50!" then I took a closer look at it, and now I can't part with it.

    Amazon just informed me that my Dr. Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum and Iron Skull Sub Attack will be dispatching much sooner than expected and I should have them within a week! I MUST have the discipline to put them away, because I collected the King's Mech yesterday and have opened it already...

    ^ Both good models @catwrangler - The Iron Skull Sub Attack has an economy of purpose and the simple lines and effective colouring are very elegant IMO, and the underwater Iron Man looks amazing. The Sanctum is just lovely to build and look at - so many little things that make it really interesting. And it has a cross-dimensional beastie writhing and squirming as it comes out of the wall. You don't see many of those these days!

    I'm sure this post will help you to not open them... ;-P

    I am a fool. I dithered over buying the cargo train from asda at a ridiculously good price until it went out of stock. 

    We really don't have room for trains and neither do I have the money at the moment  but I am strangely attracted to them for some reason

    Most of my LEGO spending lately has been CMF S16 at Target. The dog figurine and Babysitter set for display, and I went ahead with Rogue army building. It's not bad in quantity for a fig and accessories; I had looked at regular Castle archer minifigs.

    Currently having a large extension built on my house to incorporate a couple of Lego rooms. You can check progress on my youtube channel at youtube.com/brickarena

    Really need to start thinking about my room layout and start planning a city. Have been stockpiling sets all year so will be having a MAMMOTH building session when the room is complete. Latest set I bought is #60052 which will allow me to start laying rail track when possible.

    Set #79109 arrived in the mail and because of comments in the reviews about the bank not really being a building, more a facade I made my first Bricklink order to rectify that.
    Now the planning of my little western themed town begins.

    I missed out on the Amazon deal on Dr Strange. Probably pick it up for Christmas and try and add another floor to my modular MOC. Ground is a cafe, first is the Big Bang Theory lounge. I reckon it would look good on the top floor!

    i could spend over £3000 on lego today, if i had it to spand to start with.
    as it is. i just looking at all the killer deal's poping up today and saying, "if only."

    right now i am posting from the Royal Surrey County Hospital.
    on a laptop with no spell check. (google for the win.)
    geting a nice dose of Iron intravenously. as my body dont absorb the dam stuff when i eat food with iron in it.
    i HATE NEEDLES.
    i really hate Needles!
    i really, really hate Needles!
    i really, really, really hate Needles!
    and yet i hate my body a hell of a lot more for not absorbing Iron from food so i could avoid the Dam Ass Needles to start with.
    ah well the hard part is out of the way now the IV line is in. and now i just have to wait for it to finish.

    my lego update is:-
    that i have confirmed that i dont have room in my house to have a lego train layout setup, and ready to run at any time. (i dont even have the room for 16x turning track to make a loop like the one in the 2016 winter train set.)
    if i wish to see my nice lego trains run around my track i have to set it up on the floor. in eveyones way.
    (when i do this i am not playing with the train set. no no no, just the only place to show it off. not playing. i am 100% not playing with lego trains when it is on the floor.)
    it dose give me flash back to my toy train set i had when i was a kid. i had a lot of track for that train set. to go all around the ground floor of my house. lol.

    There are ways! One is to have a shelf all round a room above the height of the door frame - not necessarily very convenient, but it's a permanent loop or two. Other people have setups that are ceiling mounted and which can be lowered, in one piece, on pulleys. It's an old problem (for other types of train), and therefore has plenty of solutions.

    [As for needles, there are ways that they can make things a lot easier for you (how do you think you give an injection to a screaming, needle-phobic five year old?). Paediatric nurses simply have to use them; most adult nurses forget to consider them an option - but they are still there.]

    Like a lot of people spending quite a bit of time on Amazon.co.uk today. Really wish they still did free shipping to Belgium. Trying to get as many things in one order so the shipping costs are low but balancing it with when the deal might have gone is risky business. Can't complain too much though, cause with the inflated RRP in Belgium, some of the stuff that's only about 34% off for UK prices is almost half price compared to ours, so happy happy.

    I was thinking of sending some stuff to my mother-in-law, but with all the trading and buying I've been doing lately, I think she will start to panic if I let it all come to her place ;) Wouldn't arrive before the weekend anyway.

    Good luck @chrisalddin I'm not scared of much, but hate needles as well.

    I remember Leisureworld (cue everyone who grew up in reach of Belfast going, "Ahhhhhhhhhhh..."), our biggest local toyshop in my pre-TRU childhood, having a train set that travelled around a lot of the store like that!

    Re: needles, if you were thinking of local anaesthetic cream, the issue isn't that they've forgotten it's an option, but that it's not stocked in adult hospitals/departments. I used to struggle a lot with blood tests when I made the transition from a children's to an adult hospital, and this was a bone of contention, as a nurse would have to run over to the children's hospital on the same site to pick some up... ah, memories. :S

    @chrisalddin Sorry to hear about the iron infusions; it's not much fun to anticipate stuff like that when you find needles difficult. Hope Brickset's been some distraction for you, anyway! 

    As for my own Lego status, I finished building the King's Mech! I've eked it out over the last three evenings while watching ghost stories on YouTube; it was very cosy...

    There's various things, but that's one option. And it IS forgotten. I know an RNC who works in A&E. The nature of things means there are quiet spots and the obvious thing to do is help out "on the other side" (although, illogically, not as a nurse). "For kids, we..." is often met by blank looks, and then amazement when it works - but it is still there to be used.

    A fifth of the population have needle phobia. They think it's "not normal". They don't ask. They don't get. As a result, few know how to work round it anyway.

    No, I can't ask. I've just seen them, on a web cam, get off a plane a long way away.

    I would assume, in general, people are afraid of cold, hard needles that poke through the skin. 

    I had my fair share of it in the army back then while attending the Combat Casualty Course, and also that one time I donated blood. 

    And that will be all for me.

    But not enough for it to kill them. Some people will avoid all medical treatment just in case it turns out to involve needles - and die without whatever treatment would have been used, even if it doesn't involve needles. It can also kill directly because it can cause a fatal loss of blood pressure - something most other phobias don't manage.

    If one person realises it's more than "just being silly" and that there are things that can be done, then it's been a good day.

    As a kid (8-9 years old), when I got the flu, there was this nasty orange syrup the doctor will prescribe for a week. I hated the thing, couldn't even smell it. One time the doctor said that the alternative was one single injection in my arm... I picked the needle every single time (used to get the flu twice a year). Go figure!
