    Somebody is clearly having a laugh. Just after I posted saying I needed to get building and got everything ready the bloody power went out! Not even going to try and build by candlelight

    had this happen to me 2 times.
    turn's out the main power line for the road was slowly dying.
    the power man who had been up the tall ass poll use a lot of tech words that i dont remember now, but it come down to one of the 3 power flows in the main line for the road (the one we was linked up to) had turn to mettle powder from trees rubbing on the line. and when the power drain from 1 house got to high any house who was past that point on the line would lost power. also when a tree pulled on the power line. that would brake the flow as well. well that's what i got out of all the techno babel the power Guy told me. what it come down to was "bad line" = "no power!"

    My phone ran out of battery just after i posted that! We were using the giant minifig torch/lamps and candles but colour distinction made it impossible. All good now thankfully

    With one Brit speaking to another Brit, what do you expect them to use? A word that's likely to be regarded as "foreign"?

    Anyway, just as "torch" has a particular sort of meaning over there, unless you're interested in history, "dungeon" is likely summon images of a different scenario over here - and possibly certain politicians (like 250 of them in one famous case)!

    Whilst living in Downing Street, the second most powerful politician in the country rents (innocently) his basement flat to Miss Whiplash, head of the Corrective Party (genuinely stood for Parliament), who uses it for what you might guess, and has 250 MPs as clients.

    You couldn't make it up - and that was only the tip of the iceberg.

    I am not into Nexo Knights. With that said, #70323 Jestro's Volcano Lair picked my interest when pictures came out earlier this year... until I saw it today built at the LEGO store. I guess I was expecting a more volcano-y look and that's not what I saw today. Too bad, I really want a Jestro minifigure and a Book of Monsters.
  • VenunderVenunder Nottingham, UK.Member Posts: 2,521

    My husband is starting his own business, together with a friend so I made him a little desk-thing to motivate him. See if you can guess what kind of business it is (the crown is to obscure the name, I was trying to find a better way to obscure it but can't seem to find anything good in Flickr and don't own Photoshop).



    @Adzbadboy Good luck with the job-application! We all know how passionate you are about Lego so if you need some referrals, give us a shout.

    ^ ^^ Or get #70316 Jestro's Evil Mobile, which comes with both, but no Bookkeeper. It is a lot cheaper though.

  • snowhitiesnowhitie BelgiumMember Posts: 2,936
    ;) some good suggestions and @SumoLego is close, but regrettably it's a bit more boring (and above board)

    Should thank my Brickset secret Santa @???? again for that board though, I would never have thought of buying that and it's already been used to celebrate 6 different occasions, so it's getting well used and a lot of fun.

    You mentioned a dungeon. They are tangentially related to dominatrix style fetishes. Or so I hear! That's it really. I need very little excuse for a tenuous joke... :-)

    Okay, were are getting farther away from the truth now but entertaining guesses ;)

    He's a chemist (and crystallographer hence the crystals) and is going to check out testing and legal requirements for new food products (I'm not a chemist so I don't understand more than that).

    The cup and croissant are just his sustenance.

    I suppose he's the kind of scientist that finds traces of peanut butter in dinosaur bones? ;)

    Status part one:
    Used the new [email protected] site with its £10 voucher combined with my VIP points to complete my Scooby Doo collection. #75904 should be winging its way to me as sson as its back in stock. I plan to build it on a 32x32 or 48x48 and add a spooky fence and garden to it, then the Mystery Machine can park outside with the plane flying overhead. The Mummy scene will be built in somewhere. Leaving the lighthouse on the edge of my Modular street in the harbour.

    Status part two:
    A few weeks ago a friend of ours said she'd won "some" minifigure in a competition from America....The SDCC exclusive Atom Man has just arrived, she's taunting me with opening it and giving it to her 6yr old LEGO mad son! I've asked to be able to "just look at it in the package once" before he tears it open and adds it to his collection!

    This "habit" or "addiction" of ours, eh?

    What other habit gives you a rush at the beginning with just small amounts, leaves you wanting, no needing more as time goes on and ends up with you buying huge volumes, spending hundreds a month.

    Er, nothing I can think of! Nope! No, siree!

    Tried to hide the box. Unfortunately as it's the Simpsons House, it's big and very yellow.
    Might need to try the other approach. It's my wife's birthday next week; maybe I already give her one of her presents?
  • chrisalddinchrisalddin UKMember Posts: 3,007
    i as head of "knowing about Toy's" for my house.
    i was ordered to get gift's for a boy who is 8? 9? around that age birthday this month.
    after speaking to his mum. found out he was after lego Age of Ultron set's,
    after looking on amazon i picked out #76038 and #76029 for him.


    i love to buy stuff. more so when it not my money i am spending. :p

    i hope he likes my picks. i was limited by what i could get him by amazon stock levels!

    If it is your wife's birthday present, just gift-wrap it and there's no longer a need to hide it, and the decision on whether or not to open it early becomes HER decision to make. 
  • stluxstlux LuxembourgMember Posts: 2,307
    That Simpsons House is very much for myself ;)
    My wife likes Lego and has some sets herself, but The Simpsons is not something she likes. Would be a very selfish present to give ;)
  • GeordiePaulGeordiePaul Glastonbury, CT, USAMember Posts: 599
    @stlux Giving your wife the Simpsons house is the same as Homer giving Marge a bowling ball for her birthday with the name 'Homer' on it, which is exactly what he did in an actual episode from the early days, if I recall correctly.

    @stlux use it as a decoy for the real present! wrap it and hide it not too well... of course, assuming the real present is very well hidden.

    Some people have this Birthdays overshadowed by holidays, like Christmas or Easter. @SprinkleOtter has the once in a lifetime experience of having his overshadowed  by some bloke walking miles in the poring rain. Good luck, @Legoboy

    Also, on a side note, I just found out I have more likes than posts...
