  2. Saturday after midnight, my wife's water broke. Sunday morning at 244 AM, she delivered a healthy baby girl. Monday evening, I had a wonderful delicious steak dinner made by the hospital to celebrate. So yeah, super eventful. Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

  3. The Shuttle is still under construction but with assistance from my wife we hung the ISS. The ISS is an already fiddly model so hanging it with fishing line and hooks (drilled into studs in the ceiling) was a bit of a challenge. Big props to my wife for making it happen. I love the illusion of it in low orbit in my home office. 🤓

  5. Alright, I’m beating a dead horse here.. I got my personal trifecta now. My first and only LEGO set as a kid, the LEGO set I always wanted as a kid, and the set I’ve been waiting years for as an adult. Yasss!

  7. A college student was selling her former roommate's stuff. I can't believe he told her to throw all his stuff away! Bought this for $100 with all figures. No box or manual though. Definitely worth it. Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

  8. Today, while looking for pizza, I stumbled upon a LEGO store in... Salt Lake City Airport I travel a lot in the summer but have never seen this. Anyone else? The employee said they opened in December 2020 and they are the first store in an airport. I haven’t done the research yet to confirm or deny. They had nothing exclusive but said they’re trying to bring a ski resort set out of retirement. The strangest thing was how many big sets they had. Coliseum, Disney Castle, Harley Davidson, Typewriter, etc. I always bring home something for the kids when I travel, and grabbing a LEGO set before I head home would be a cool option. But who would impulse buy a Coliseum? It seemed like they try to do a Disney move which is get the impulse buy then offer to ship it wherever you’re going. Anyway, thought I’d share a cool find.

  19. We have had a similar conversation with our daughter. It seems one of the main differences in Gen-X folks (like my wife and me) vs. Millinials (like our daughter) is that Gen-X is/was all about casting off labels (“Don’t label me!”), whereas Millinials seem to want to label everything, perhaps in an effort to figure out where they fit in in the world. Gen-X kids didn’t want to fit in. We wanted to be our own thing, unique to ourselves, at least that’s the stereotype. What actually happened a lot of the time was that we were “totally unique”… just like everyone else we liked to hang out with. 😂 It’s a fundamentally different way of thinking and a source of lots of misunderstanding on both sides of the generation line. People are funny. For what it’s worth, I’m completely with you on the whole “let’s just let toys and cartoons be toys and cartoons, not some political statement” thing. Not everything has to have some esoteric meaning. Some things should just be fun. Save the preaching and teaching for church and school. At least that’s how I feel about it. I am not necessarily “right” and folks who disagree are not necessarily “wrong”. (There is zero hate or intolerance in this post. I’m a musician and have lived in an extremely diverse world for most of my life. I just try to be myself and let others be themselves. Not that anybody asked.)

  20. Thanks. It's a combination of things, really. He took over supervision of my group at the start of the year. He has a reputation of being difficult to work for. A couple of people that were transferred under him in an reorg just up and walked away within a month of starting to work for him. My team and I have held out. But it's gotten increasingly difficult. The best way to describe the situation is like this - this is a man who tries his damnedest to show confidence when he has none. He trust know one, because he believes no one trusts him. He is a poor leader, because he leads poorly. It's a case of "if everyone else in the room is an asshole, maybe you need to look in a mirror." I was teleworking at home 5 days a week until a couple of months ago. And I truly believe he thinks I did nothing in that time. Despite me providing copious records as to what I do on a daily basis, I think he thinks I've done nothing because that's what HE would do given the opportunity. The last couple of weeks I've been told "I don't understand what you do" (despite numerous presentations to tell him what I do), "I don't see a reason for you to even be here." The icing on the cake was his refusal to release me from my current job, so I can transfer to my new job on time. He literally waited until the last possible moment, which meant I would have missed out on transferring agencies for two extra weeks. I had to involve a number of higher ups to nudge him in the correct direction. So, he's retaliating every way he can. Sorry for the rambling on, just very stressed and frustrated. My integrity has been called into question, and I hate that. It really gets under my skin. I just need to let it go, make it through the next 7 work days, and I can move on.

  32. not exactly LEGO, but close Sold a COBI Titanic NISB on Ebay for $270 shipped. Took a flyer on it on a Walmart clearance for $80...not bad for a 3 month hold I was planning it for personal collection, but faced the likelihood of actually building and storing it (it's huge)...my backlog is about 3 years post-mortem (assuming I live to 100) ...rumors of a LEGO version had me spooked and ofcourse the x3 buy-in made it a no brainer.

  36. worthless. been saying this since first announced. Lego doubled down on stupid after seeing how bad hidden side did. and that was WITH very cool HS sets. Apparently HR over in Billibund mixed up the pink slips and promotions for the HS group. Cant understand why they wont bring back castles but are willing to spend millions on this unasked for loser of a theme

  44. This happened with me over 10 years ago. Job was secure, but my responsibilities were going to be so greatly diminished (Was going to go from having the controller duties of a CPA firm, to being on a team doing collections). So many co-workers were stabbing each other in the back (just trying to survive), desperately trying to get a seat in the lifeboat (before the ship went down) - It was so painful to witness. This is when I quit, to become a full time LEGO man. Best decision ever.
