    ^I spy a hedgehog! (That's not my status, but is about as intelligent as most updates).

    "Stop thinking about Lego, Start thinking about work" would be mine.

    Ack! Has changed from "STOP SHOPPING FOR LEGO NO ROOM LEFT" to
    Same here. Or shall I say, "begins wondering how much pcs of Legos he's accumulated so far from his measly collection."

    BTW, Happy Birthday, Savage_Steel! :)

    Staring at my Super Heroes and thinking how awesome they are with the Modular buildings. I love Lego.

    Grateful to work for my Xmas vouchers that have paid for my 3061... but also frickin freezin waiting in TRU car park with my dad for a "special" train to pass through Peterborough... oh well, we've all got our hobbies, haven't we?
  • legoDadlegoDad Member Posts: 529
    Relaxing at 12:30am....putting in the final little gift into the stockings while my son sleeps. Finishing a Death Star and Millenium Falcon ornament (Chris McV designed) to complete the day. Peace to all!
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    Finished reorganising my Lego hoard - found a home for the avalanche of stuff that arrived in December, and pulled out the next 5 or 6 builds - cant wait to get started!
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,572
    I'm similar to Si: spent the afternoon sorting out some loose bricks and bagging/storing sets, now laying into the backlog of builds while watching movies :)
  • paradisiaparadisia UKMember Posts: 15
    Cleared my Christmas Toy shop display from my City street layout, and looking through the 2012 Lego catalogue considering which sets to buy next

    Finally - Friends, my 7-year-old's best day ever, again :)
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    Just finished building the Pharohs pyramid - better than expected but wouldnt have been worth full price. Back to building the joust - now THAT's more like it!
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,572
    Really chuffed with my first Superheroes set and that I'll be getting the Rise of the Sphinx for a very bargainous price, but now concerned that I'm looking at the PQ coin bank and thinking "if I get this I'll complete the theme" (which would be a personal first). So, clearly everyone on here has been a very bad influence on me!! I've never been a completionist before!
  • HobHob My Lego houseMember Posts: 223
    "really wants that box or random Lego (possible Star wars sets with instructions and minifigs) from his friends wife ASAP before she gives it to someone else"

    That's mine for today.
  • omgitsrenzoomgitsrenzo Member Posts: 46
    mine would be

    " the key to my friendship/heart - a warm smile , sense of humor , fantastic personality , smarts and most importantly loads of legos ;D
  • Bosstone100Bosstone100 USAMember Posts: 1,431
    @LostInTranslation - I say forget about the bank. It's not like it fits with the other sets. It just has the same markings, etc.

    To me, I have the complete theme.
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    Picked up new Star Wars sets from Meijer today.

    "You should see the LEGO collection I have... erm... in my head! It's massive! Now I just need to buy the stuff!"
  • stagusstagus Member Posts: 256
    Feeling inspiration for my display at the Lego, really I am.....but need to get more bricks for MOC's!
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    Wondering what Stagus will be showing at the Lego show :)
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,572
    Finished building Pet Shop yesterday, the last set of my backlog. Finished sorting out loose elements this morning (despite the distraction of the Aussie open final).
    Now need to finish procrastinating, and get on with moccing (after the tennis!)

    I would love to build my sets, but how does anyone find space to display these short of dedicating an entire room to it?
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    Just finished MoD of 2x Grand Emporiums. Well, the exterior is finished anyway, interior needs a few bits yet. Aiming to use up all the bits in the original sets.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,572
    Thought I might be able to get away with a snow day today, and do some building on my Willy Wonka chocolate factory MoC and work from home, but sadly the paths were clear enough for me to get to my bus...

    My remaining John Lewis vouchers are burning a hole in my pocket given all the discounted stuff at my local branch. T-6, bounty hunter ship, naboo starfighter set and battle packs. Do I go after work tonight? Not that I currently need any more sets at the moment. hmm
  • ktmoktmo Member Posts: 73
    Waiting for a snow day to build Olivia's House.
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844
    Has a table of dismembered minifigs, a new batch of decals and a bunch of orders to fill - but no snow day for me. The though of the limbless minifigs in pain is killing me!
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,572
    @Savage_steel: lol, you minifig butcher! Reminded me I need to check whether I have some body parts for you though :)
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844
    thanks @lostintranslation. and honestly it does feel wrong. When I got my first batches of used lego from ebay I couldn't understand why some kids had pulled all their figs apart - it just seems cruel. but sadly it's necessary for this!

    Must build the sets I dont want in order to sell them. But the reason I want to sell them is because I dont want to build them. Oh the pain! The suffering!
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,572
    @Si - I'll come over and build them for you. Will accept commission of 20% of sale price or Lego of equivalent value.
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    no really please do - Offer accepted - Especially the darn Ferris wheel!

    Wondering if LIT is still stuck in a snowdrift on the M25 :)
    Also a day of the imperials, a shuttle and a flagship turned up all at once.

    I didn't win the lottery again.
    Dreaming of how much Lego I'd buy if I _did_ win the lottery and then thinking it's probably best that I dont. Good job the odds are 14 million to one (apparently).
  • littletokilittletoki Member Posts: 519
    ^ Been there and done that. And added to list of LEGO items is an assistant - one who will do some of the sorting, organizing and buying.

    Can you imagine the job description for that?
  • richoricho Member Posts: 3,830
    on train back from working in central London today, reading the forum right now!

    am wondering if my Italian imperial shuttle is on it's way...
