littletoki: Greetings from the rainy NW!

edited January 2012 in Introduce yourself
I used Brickset for over a year before realizing there were forums - and very active forums! Doh! I finally de-lurked to talk about plastic storage containers of all things so I thought I'd make it official and say hello!

I love this site and how helpful and supportive everyone is - a nice change of pace from some of the more intense and argumentative forums out there. Also, I feel sooo very normal here.

A bit about me. I'm a well.. *cough*..umm... 40 yr (when did that happen?!) female who grew up with Space LEGO (which I still adore). Unfortunately, teenage years and interest in boys began a decades long dark ages. Luckily, I came out of it just in time to grab some great Star Wars UCS. Little did I know what that would start. LOL.

    I smiled when you said you feel normal here. I reminded me of an incident at the Star Trek convention I went to last year. A girl in line was having trouble getting an autographed photo out of a plastic sleeve so I helped her. She was pleased when I got the photo out without damaging it at all and she gave me a high-five. I told her, "Wouldn't this be more appropriate?" and made the Vulcan greeting with my hand. She replied, "That's the dorkiest thing I've ever seen" to which I pointed to the room, people in costume as Borg, Ferengi, Klingons, a Gorn in a business suit, a red-shirted Stormtrooper and a pair of blonde Lt. Uhuras and said, "Have you looked around this room lately?" She laughed and said, "Good point."

    It's all good though when you share a common passion. :-)

    @prof1515. I'm so glad I was only JUST about to drink my coffee when I read about your Vulcan greeting. Disaster averted.

    That was honestly awesome.

    Aren't you going to get hit with a major snowstorm? That's some quality indoor LEGO time!

    @giraffefreckles. All 4 inches from Snow-maggedon 2012 has fallen and melted. Luckily, I'm further south than Seattle which is supposed to get the bulk of it.

    Melted? That was fast. Oh well on LEGO time. :)

    Good luck on your storage solutions. Lots of ideas, as you see!

    Welcome to the forum! I enjoyed looking through your blog the other day with the storage suggestions. I even bookmarked the Lego gingerbread house post for next year, my daughters love building gingerbread houses around Christmas.
  • littletokilittletoki Member Posts: 519
    @tk79. That gingerbread house is disgustingly cute. It's all Powerpig - he designed it and uploaded the how to guide. He made a bunch more Christmas ornaments as well - Santa's sleight, mini Death Star! Love them all.

    @littletoki Didn't catch that there was a whole line of ornaments too. That guy has some really cool stuff, very clever. Thanks for the heads up!

    I love PowerPig, his creations are just amazing. I guess it's time for me to introduce myself too.
