    Not really a Lego status, but it's the first time I've been on this forum in about a month. It's been really busy here at college and just life in general. I'm happy to be back. 
    Despite the chaotic nature of life, it's always good to set apart time for things that we enjoy. Hope to see more of you around the forum @Bricklover18  !

    Packing up my collection so we can put the house up for sale. So far, I've managed to get sealed sets boxed up and I've broken down some of the stuff I had on display. The real issue is what to do about the modulars (I have all of them up, minus BB and AS). Can't decide whether I want to break them down and rebuild them, or try to box them up as intact as possible. Anyone gone through this before and have some advice?

    There's also the issue of the brick I use to MOC. That portion of my collection is...substantial.

    I have moved intact modulars in apple boxes (the fruit, not the computer). They are very sturdy and fit in nicely with regard to width and height. Done this successfully both for taking stuff to shows and moving house.

    Almost finished with Gare de Lyon! Here's a sneak preview, from the construction process! Even after scaling it down, it's still huge! 2 baseplates and a little extra, and the entire thing is over 2 1/2 feet tall!

    Curious...how come some people post what they have built or bought here, others post it in the what are you building or what are you buying threads? Just curious...
    It can be treated as a status update, i.e. we have finished building this today or bought a new set today.

    Sometimes I post my latest build here and other times over at the "what are you building" thread depending on my mood :))

    You won't need grapefruit, being woken up by a Gungan is enough to keep anybody regular. ;)

    The good old Full English. Although you appear to have a tomato in there..? And toast instead of fried bread? At least you've got the correct sauce!

    BROWN! There is no other name for it, no other sauce like it. HP Sauce, Daddies Sauce, Tiger Sauce, Chop Sauce. There are others... I even imagine there are some over your way too. Absolutely delicious on sausages. You must understand - this is NOT BBQ sauce! Bleurgh!

    I stumbled across perhaps the best review on Brickset the other day. I was trying to figure out what a Kek Powerizer did to be worth $60 but instead found this wonderful set of observations by Cheetos100:

    Awesome!

    Written by Cheetos100 (Unspecified) in United States, 17 Jun 2009

    I LOVE it becuase it come with 20 fun games and interacts with Galidor Quest and it interacts with the Galidor TV show (it doesn't come on anymore). The Kek Powerizer is hte best!! Too bad mine broke. I remember when my Kek Powerizer broke down I started banging it in the chest (speaker) with a hard hammer. It worked a couple of times but after a couple of days it officially broke down. So i threw it out in the garbage. (It was getting old anyway). My Parents aren't really up to buying another Kek Powerizer. Oh well. Those things were So fun. Enjoy YOUR Kek Powerizer while you still have it. :)

    This review has been rated unhelpful.

    been in the middle of buildign Resistance X-Wing Fighter for weeks and Brick Bank for longer than that. sometimes BL business and non-LEGO stuff really cuts into my person LEGO time

    the Sainsbury's Big Breakfast reminds me of a Garbage Plate - your choice of 2 pieces of meat, 2 of baked beans/french fries/macaroni salad/homefries, slathered in hot sauce - my mouth is saying yes, my arteries are saying no. It's a Rochester specialty - @SumoLego, what do you think of them?

    @Briking you might be a LEGO-holic if...you cover your dining room table in models and use these to give the dimensions of the table. I'm guessing you mean 32x32 (10-inch, 25.4-cm) plates since modulars use these.

    @eanair I rather liked my first trip to a LEGO Store as well. wish I could go back, been a bit over a year, but it's way out of bike range. finding plenty of other ways to spend money on LEGO though. ;)

    @blogzilly once on a fan forum for a female musician, I addressed someone as she because of the avatar, but it was a male using a picture of the artist I hadn't recognized.

    @Legopassion Target has 'Chaos in Gotham City' for $6.81, and I got it better than that after various sales and discounts, but $8 isn't horrible if you want both the minifigure and the book

    @Legopants Did you manage to acquire any left over kiss kiss tuxedo batman polys during your visit?

    I see they have moved Lester, though something looks wrong with his face/expression, almost as if it were a new model, or maybe it's just the extreme close up? Wonder if Batman or a different model is now downstairs in Lester's corner.

    No Kiss Kiss Batman polys (I wasn't offered one anyway, and forgot to ask). Bought a London Bus set, got a passport and a calendar.
