getting Mum to Buy me some Bookcase's from Ikea. :)
now i just have to move some stuff around, and my display space for lego models is going to go up by about 70%.
(this has been on the back burner for over 1 year.)
it will be nice to have more room to display my models.
*actually my mum got me a microwave for xmas...
Popped to town and found the Great Lego Sets book for 70% off in WHSmiths. Then in JL they had the Batmobile for £45. Birthday money all gone now!
as a kid mum worked out that i was hiperactiv. it was trigger by some types of food.
(normal food with E numbers in it. the one's linked to artificial color and flavoring. that why you see stuff with "No artificial color and flavoring added" nowadays.) the point is when i had a hiperactiv episode i would be uncontrollable and i would not recall anything i did. (one time at school i was told a ran around the class room jumping from table to table, at the time there was only kid's in the room, one of my class m8, who had a hard punch, hit me hard, so i was told after, and i just got right back up and when back to what i was doing.) as i said i never remember this but when your class tells you all the same thing. i had to take it as i did that.
anyhow back on point. one of the thing that would trigger a hiperactiv episode was any item made from "a coco been" so Easter Egg's was a big no no for me.
so i never felt left out at Easter mum would buy me a gift, normally a toy, for Easter.
now, i dont know if i can have a hiperactiv episode anymore. but i still get Gift's for Easter (aka this year the bookcase's.)
am i 13?
i think a little part of anyone who likes Lego has a part of there self that is still a child.
so in my mind? maybe part of it. in Body? sadly no i am not. i am way to old in body for my liking.
Maybe I didn't miss much. I double checked the values and Vacation Batman is the only one significantly above MSRP. I'm busy enough with existing inventory. The only one I want myself is a couple Glam Metal Batman, which I haven't managed to find yet.
Maybe it will be harder to escape from than Arkham Asylum; the batfamily could use a bat-break. :)
With TLBM, as usual for movies, my cheap works at a library self is waiting for the DVD
We were allowed a look in the hallowed Lego-room and duly impressed (and trying not to be jealous).
My son and husband enjoyed themselves too and my son wanted to go back this morning.
Regrettably no more bricksetter-meeting today as we're driving back to Belgium but I've got some trading loot and one set my husband managed to pick up at half price in Sainsbury's to cheer me up.
It was really good to have finally met and thank you so much for the 'Belgian' beer and chocolates etc. Kids had a great time and good to see Jake the Dog helping your son get over his fear of four-legged friends. Impressive.
I'm a little more fearful of my next Bricksetter meet. Lord knows what I've let myself in for.
counting the minutes until Midnight, in the hope that EU get 2x VIP like the USA will.
firstly, that feeling when you change a set from "wanted" to "owned" - you check the box which turns the line green and then untick the orange one and everything is right with the world, at least until you see the other orange lines...b
secondly, when you cut your nails, realise that this will make that dissemble job so much harder and then start looking at BrickLink to find which sets you own have a separator in them.
right now is is only showing up on the Checkout. but it is there!
I often think a brick is missing but have another look around and find it in part of the model where it should not be or down the side of my armchair or even under my desk. :) Problem solved.
In 4000 sets I have never had a brick missing from a Lego set.
I called TLG and they are sending me 4 of them. First time I ever had to do that and they were great, I initially gave them the wrong part number and called them back and are sending me all 8 pieces anyways. So I scored!!! The little guy WINS!!! 16 cent bonus on my end;) Winning! Bigly!
Not totally sure about the box, it's much cheaper than the full plastic one but figs so seem to lean a bit (like the conquistador). Plus, you can't really see them from the sides.
Still, good for now and proud of them together.
I'm looking forward to a good day of building. :)
Sorting in progress. Pictures when I get round to building it.
Wife: "That's the book you want?"
Son: "Yes, look it comes with a LEGO fireman."
Wife: "Do you want the book because of the book? Or because of the LEGO fireman?"
Son: "Because of the LEGO fireman." (You gotta respect his honesty.)
Wife: "Buddy, Daddy has a whole army of LEGO firemen. Do you really need another one?"
Son: "You told me I could pick any book I wanted."
Son: "You said I could pick."
Wife: Mumbles incoherently.
That's my boy!
Still undecided about which model to build this week - #60119 or #60073...
I truly mean this when I say it, but I really respect all genders. My Mom taught me to never judge someone by their gender and color, and I think we all need that thought more than ever. Here's an interesting article I read about LEGO girl minifigures represented in sets:
My biggest complaint about the source material for the set is that Tina Fey wasn't in this movie. I like Lemon.
It's like they knew...
