Lol, indeed, especially at my age!
It's hilarious how many people really give me the "what's wrong with you" look when they learn about my hobby, lol. Most ladies my age are knitting and sewing things for their grandchildren ... me, I'm dreaming of sweet builds to give them to play with!!


I don't talk about it much to other people. It's not that I'm embarrassed, it's just... I dunno, really. No one has actually poked fun of me. In fact, most have downright encouraged me. I just know what people might think. "Oh, look, there goes a nerd!" :9 But, as the old Tony Sava saying goes: "There are a lot of worse things I could be doing with my life. At least LEGO doesn't hurt anyone."

As a mom, and a grandmother ... those type of things almost always come up ... it's just the nature of the my age. I don't mind, I've grown to be amused. I guess that's where accepting who we are and allowing others to be who and how they are becomes complete, know what I mean.

You mean "live and let live?" Yeah, that's how I usually act... or want to. It generally works. :)

Mostly ;o)
but we've gotten waaaaay off topic

btw: I would say that you weren't in a dark age, more like a greyzone - a lapse of motivational direction :o)
I generally have several projects going at once, the variety keeps me from getting bored and helps me focus when I'm working on a specific thing ... so many ideas, so little time!

Personally, I try to toy around with my Lego a bit every day. I'll try to think of my own ideas, stuff I've dreamt about, the constant string of universes I create, and ideas from my social studies classes or D&D campaigns. A lot of the time though, I will build stuff from games. The key to building is finding something you think is cool, or having a neat idea and then making your own version of it, trying to pack in all the details you think it needs to look "right".

I think that the same thing is happening in my life Napo- there has been a lot of change and distractions, and little time left for Lego! :( I just think of something new I can build everyday, and then on weekends, I build some of these things. This way, I always have Lego on my mind!

It's not that I don't have time, per say, but just that there's so much stuff I enjoy doing. I play my PS3 waaayyyy too much...
