(And Happy Birthday, as well.)
hope you have/had a good day
Happy Birthday and congratulations on getting you wife to buy you something Lego related.
Mine still refuses after restarting my fascination with a lego set for Christmas 2 years ago.
Edit: that doesn't mean that I don't buy sets with any money she gives me for birthdays though. :)
My tongue can't repel flavor of that magnitude!
Mom is preparing for an Easter egg hunt. Me: "Snapping plastic things together? Ick!" ;)
btw my backlog looks like this
that stack was as tall as i am.
i decided to build the mini, and just got done with stage 1 (bags 1).
now it time to take a time out.
re the classic box's there part of my spare parts stock for mocking with.
5 of them have been opened and the purple bag's removed. as i needed parts from that bag for my last MOC. they still have the other bag's still in there. unopened as it just more easy to stock them like that. i have 8 in all and only 1 is 100% un opened with 5 part opened and 2 100% unpacked so if i need more of X part i just go to the unopened bags. but i placed them there as they do have unopened lego bags.
i should think about getting some sleep.
Its Easter Sunday, got a glass of red on the side, five bird roast in the oven and the Brick Bank on the table. My daughter and I just spent an hour sorting and laying tiles on the baseplate. There is something very satisfying about that first layer of a modular! Need to stop now as there is veg to peel.
I'm also playing with LEGO while waiting on Easter dinner. Finishing some MOCs and organizing BL inventory first so I can have those out of the way before I open more boxes.
there will always be new Lego to Buy.
new set's to build.
and new brick type's to cut your feet open on.
and yet we love it don't we?
Just came back from watching BvS and quite disappointed. Good concept but poor execution.
(In that, not a comparison between TFA and BvS, but weighing your expectations vs. what was on screen.)
While I was disappointed with BvS half way through the movie and the last 1/3 sealed it. They just had to cram in the big bad and convolute it all. Snyder screwed up bad just like JJ, but in a different way. The movie needed better writing and direction. Though I did like Wonder Woman and Affleck as Bruce Wayne. But Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor was annoying beyond heck.
Woah hold up. You didn't like TFA? Why? I mean TFA did everything I was hoping for as a star wars fan. In fact I wish JJ would dierect the rest of the star wars movies to come out.
I don't think they'll probably be enough interest to start a separate BvS thread. Frankly, the Turducken discussion is much more interesting.
Shout out to the "my cousin vinny" reference. What a great movie.
TFA was proper fan service, it was close in many ways to a new hope but it has laid the groundwork for some decent sequels.
i love bb8 for example......I even got him (dunno why I think he is male) tattooed on my arm on Saturday morning.
So because I'm crap at lying he found out that the Toy & Grocery Shop that I had told him was all I got during 2xVIP points was actually a lie.
And because karmas a bitch I've gotten tonsilitis for the 2nd time in a month - and I feel way too crappy to make any of the sets I bought.
I really should treat myself to even a small set to make myself feel better. Yes I should.
I feel so childish for buying LEGO sets instead of alcoholic beverages.
I used to love Kragling everything. God bless the Kragle. I did however promise my 8 year-old I would stop.
looks like i court a bug.
i hate being ill.
In the window they were advertising children's birthday cakes for sale with the help of some small Lego sets/minifigures and some My Little Ponies.
The next 20 minutes was spent trying to explain to the wife why I had inexplicably burst out laughing.
