Things you've found yourself saying while building

This sucks! What am I doing with my life.

“I’m sorry little one, but I need your parts.”

“Your time is up friend.” Rips off the head of a MOC before dismantling the rest.

“Which one of you is hiding the piece?”

“Don’t worry, I’m just borrowing it, you’ll get it back later.”
Later: “Wait, which one(s) did you come from again?”

“Now now, be cooperative. Don’t make me get out the knife.”–stubborn 2L axels and half axels.

“It can stand?! What did I do right?”

“I need to get rid of these spiders”
[To the spiders] “Hey get back here”

I hardly talk out loud but these are some thought processes that probably have been verbalized:
“I need to do another Bricklink order”
“I need to stop procrastinating and buy an extension cord so I can have a working radio down here.”
“Mah name is Jeff”

Y’all lucky y’all have basements :stuck_out_tongue: Down here, refers to a rotting 1970s tool shed that my Vintage Lego calls home…

Oh I just remembered I do yell/scream whenever I find a fake lego piece and then I proceed to throw it across the room, so that’s something I “say to myself.”

“Hm, that’ll be a good backstory.”
~10 minutes of building later~
“That should be a fun personality, no wait it makes no sense with the backstory.”
~10 more minutes of building later~
“Wait a minute, this looks a lot like something I saw on the subreddit earlier.”
~another increment of time later~
“Of course the piece I want to use is already being used by another moc.”
~Further time has passed~
“Must. Not. Use. Vahki. Head.”
~Some more time later~
Welp that wasn’t productive at all hey it’s night time."

After spending almost an hour on one segment.
“Okay, this looks awful and I’m going to have to restart the whole section”

Or after overlooking an older MOC.
“This is hideous. Why did I ever think this was good?”

There’s no point resisting. Embrace my beauty.

This happens to me all the time

“Must focus on one moc, must not get distracted by another idea.”

Not mocing but that’s how I am with gunpla; ideas just keep piling up whether it’s for the one I’m working on or something new.

“Why on Earth do I have so many of that piece.”

“Wait, I had how many copies of that set?”

“Well that looks good…Why does it look like something I’ve seen before?”
