    ^^ I should have thought - I just drove through High Wycombe at 1pm today with an empty car seat .. ooops!

    ^ Ah, no worries. I have a chauffeur anyway, eh @flump6523? :-P

    "Status: Swearing off Bricklinking projects"

    Last night started piecing together Cafe Corner using inventory pieces. 1 Hour later the project was scrapped altogether, as realization started to sink in about how painful and time-consuming it would be to go all the way to completion =( It just was not worth it based on the amount of effort and time alone, not even accounting for the cost in money either. Much better to drop the gauntlet and have 100% of the pieces accounted for, sorted and in perfect new condition. You end up with the real thing and not a substituted version, while saving many hours of your life in the process.

    ^ Yep. Having done it myself, I came to the same conclusion. Sometimes people just need to try it first to realise ;o)

    The _really_ smart people are the ones who're selling bricks at ridiculous prices to people who are trying to bricklink old modulars :)

    LEGO status: in one of my depression stages at the moment so very sad and moody
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 3,491
    Spent most of The Avengers movie thinking, "But that's nothing like the lego set?!".

    Picked up 4206 Recycling Truck @ WM last night as consolation for there being no S7; actually, I have been meaning to pick this up anyway.
  • littletokilittletoki Member Posts: 519
    I need to hire a Lego assistant. :\
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,270
    ^ How much you paying? =)
  • littletokilittletoki Member Posts: 519
    I pay in Minifigs and Lego. LOL

    Annoyed, £22 charge from LEGO on my credit card statement this month for an order which does not exist, phoned LEGO customer services who are are currently denying all knowledge of the charge.
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    Also annoyed. Just checked that I got repaid for a cancelled order in March - Lego hadn't refunded me..... :(
  • pantboypantboy EnglandMember Posts: 211
    ^ they did that to me once before too, when it was finally sorted customer services said they would add 100 VIP points to my account, they never turned up either.
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    Well there is an upside. Its £60 coming in that I assumed I'd already spent. More lego!

    Working on an Unofficial Guide to LEGO Fans project...which is bound to go over very, very badly with the LEGO community at large :D

    My lego status: annoyed my Lego pieces still haven't shown up! Arrr! I just want to build my mini Lego store already!
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    ^ its a nice little build and everyone that sees it comments on it. It'll be worth the wait.

    'Can someone please get me off eBay?'
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,270
    My last 3 BL orders finally made it here with the last parts I need to build my MOC church. Only took like 10 orders total after having missing parts from orders just get the $0.10 refunded and having to make another order to get them or making orders to find that they didn't have the one rarer part that was the reason I chose their store to begin with.
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    @graphite I TOTALLY understand that! I had the same thing happen with me completely a Dumbledore's Office I received most of in a lot sale, I STILL need the dark grey 8x16 base for the second level and the store I ordered it from emailed me that they didn't have it so they threw in 2 8x16 green bases. Green does not look good in Dumbledore's Office, lol. Now maybe Snape's room it would :)

    'Can someone please get me off eBay?'
    I feel the same about [email protected] today! does anyone else not feel good about ordering way too much today?? I feel just like Ive eaten all my easter eggs at once!

  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    ^Save some eggs for the second promo for May, mini-Hulk giveaway for $50 spending. Don't know if there will be any discounts or free shipping to go with it though.
  • aimlesspursuitsaimlesspursuits USMember Posts: 207

    Trying to convince my daughter that her girl scout project to make an insect home can be done in LEGO.
  • PlaugePlauge Member Posts: 39
    I guess I´m divorced in a couple of weeks when my wife figures out how much I have spent on Lego the last, um 4 weeks..
  • andyscouseandyscouse Western MAMember Posts: 365
    Back from the new Peabody store - $720 of stuffola for $410! Then a swift visit to Natick for a couple of grab bags and a PaB tub full of ---- windows & doors -- the very things I'm lacking! So - a good day!
  • starfire2starfire2 Phoenix AZMember Posts: 1,329
    Finally built my Bricklinked mini Lego store. Such a cute little baby.

    Looking forward to the LEGO show today...
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    Sated . . . 6 sets purchased in two days makes me content.
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    Sated . . . 6 sets purchased in two days makes me content.
    But ticked off that those purchases dictated I pass on the craigslist ad for Market Street at only $80.00. Guess it's true I can't have it all!

  • LegopantsLegopants GermanyMember Posts: 2,091
    Received my used Chamber of Secrets yesterday (eBay) - gonna see which parts are missing and then put in a BrickLink order.
    At least Fawkes and the MFs are all there :-)

    Ordered the VW Camper the other day (mainly to get the TC-14) - really looking forward to getting it. Should be a good build :-)

    Must stop Lego-ing, must start studying!

    /recites LEGO mantra:

    Sacrifice the present, for presents in the future

    Just gotta get through nursing school and endure this soup-5x/week-budget for another 18 months, and then hopefully I'll be able to buy all most of the LEGO that I want.
  • ErnstErnst Member Posts: 133
    Taking apart my Fantasy Era sets to make space for new sets.
  • Brewer51Brewer51 Member Posts: 248
    Thinking to myself; "is it wrong to think that, while I look at jobs for my year out, that the wage needs to be enough to allow me to buy the modulars?"
  • martynmartyn Reading, UKMember Posts: 148
    On the way home after a great day at the LEGO show. The mosaic looked awesome and it was only about half finished when we left.
  • ErnstErnst Member Posts: 133
