    So, I finally returned to my office today, and sitting in front of the door is a BIG box. As I shove it into my office while getting my jacket off, I see it has tribdog's return address on it. He got me a BIG box of Legos for Christmas!!! :biggrin: :approve: Now you all don't have to listen to me complain nobody buys me Legos anymore. :biggrin:

    Thanks tribdog!!! :!!) (This might even make me stop laughing about those fake fingernails you attached to yourself while I was away...hmm...nah...:rofl:)

    Call him? Now, when would either of us be offline long enough to get a phone call through? LOL! I'm quite certain this is the best place to thank him and know he'll see it. :biggrin:

    :rolleyes: Not content with 'math', you now want to make the plural of Lego 'Legos'? Give me strength, dear Lord, to get thru this...

    On a lighter note, you might want to see that we have a whole county made out of Lego(s) e.g. whole malls made of the stuff:

    Take the virtual tour. You'll probably need smelling salts though, if your reaction to a measly box is anything to go by. Here in England we are also proudly working on genetically engineered modular plastic folk. Nothing to do with Legoland, we're just short of bus drivers in London at present.

    What are you gonna make with your lego(s), legos, legoes, legose, leghose, legohs, leggoes, or what ever they are, :biggrin:, Moonbear? I suggest that you reconstruct the human genome.

    Just don't let Tribdog get anywhere near it!

    Boy, that tribdog sounds like such a sweetheart. I'll bet the dummy didn't remember to put the card inside the box though did he?

    Dude! I loved legos as a kid! I stopped playing with them when I was like 13 though because peolpe I knew though of them as "kiddy" toys. Man, I miss playing "lego wars" with my friends... We built medieval armies and death machines! Mwhahaha! Good times.

    Weird.

    You lot say 'legos', but you also say 'math'.
    We say 'lego', but 'maths'.

    Stand by for more shocking revelations...

    LOL! If you have just one lonely little block, you can call it a lego. And the brand is Lego, but if you have a whole box of them, they are legos. :biggrin: I've never understood why you say maths. Do you also go to Englishes and Histories classes? We should put together an English to English dictionary for those who get confused around here.

    Never let something as silly as growing up get in the way of playing with toys! Legos are something you never get too old to play with!

    Actually, if you have one individual block, you have a Lego brick, and if you have many, you have Lego bricks. Still not Legos. :biggrin:
    Incidentally, if you have a single lonely sheep, you have a sheep, but if you have a whole flock of them, you have.........? :P
    As for maths; Surely a contaction for mathematics? With proper apostrophe use, maths should probably be spelled math's (as a contractive, rather than a posessive).

    P.S. I love Lego. I had more of the little spacemen and space ships than I can count! Then all the sets got mixed up in one box, and it became impossible to make any of the original models as I couldn't find any of the bits.

    When did anyone have just one Lego block? That would be ridiculous!

    Nope, we definitely go to English lessons (and they're lessons, not classes). You mean to say you get taught English and not American? I'm shocked! A dictionary would be good though, as long as you guys are treated as the foreign lot!
