I wonder what your car is doing with an injun. Is he feersum? Very feersum? Lots
of fethers?

Krhmm. I've a couple alliterated name suggestions:

åsna - a Swedish donkey. The coloring fits. Does it have looong ears?
It might also be mulåsna - that's a Swedish mule.
känkkäränkkä - a Finnish word for somebody who complains all the time.
As it's from '85 it just might sputter and cough before starting, eh?
mörökölli - aah, nice sound to it. Trips right off your tongue.
What it is? It's something Finnish, but I can't describe it.
überholt - that's "passed", or "past", in German. Not like "it passed the test",
but like "the red BMW passed my sputtering mörökölli". Or like "it's heydays
were long past".

Anybody able to pronouce all of above without problems gets 10 points.

Good point. Maybe I should call it John Brown as in "John Brown had a little
..." But it would be "John Brown had a big injun" and would not lyric quite as
well.

It does not have a personality yet, but:

1. This morning my wife calls to me while I'm in the shower (not sh*tt*ng) "Is
there anything special I have to do to start this thing?" I said "Did you try
giving it some gas and turning the key?" She said "Yes." I said "Try it
again." It worked.

2. She calls me at work today and says "The driver side window is stuck down."


åsna is sounding good for a name due to its stubborn nature, but in English it
sounds like a sinus/wheezing problem.

You could call it *burrrrp* then.

I've given up burping ever since I moved in with my fiancee, but
yesterday, she burped first, and laughed mischievously, so, not to be
outdone, I let one rip. It wasn't very spectacular, since I've been out
of practice for a good year now, but still. She was not very amused. I
was, and I'm sure the neighbours appreciated it too.

I guess that means she probably won't play the fart game, either. What
a shame. Of course, you can still play if you have a dog to blame.

No fart games for us. I'm not that fond of 'em. Burps are lots more fun.

What the hell is it with women and bodily noises? Pah. Go ahead and belch
and fart and whatever. It's called being a human organism. There's a time
to be polite and all, but in the privacy of your own home you should be
allowed to be free of pain, and holding in gas can be damned painful.

Which is why I normally go to the toilet to fart. I don't even like my
own farts' smell, and I sure as hell don't like smelling other people's
colon gasses, thankyouverymuch, and that has nothing to do with modesty
or politeness. Just with smell.

Now, belching I don't mind.

Right, well, there's being nice too. But so many women just get so uptight
about natural noises. I know...I was uptight about all that once too.
Doesn't mean I'm a pig now, it just means that I'd never freak out if
someone belched.

Well, there's a difference between 'freaking out' and 'not being amused'
too. It's not as if my fiancee slapped me around or burst out crying
because I belched. She just made a sarcastics remark about men being
kids or something.

Okay, I went and looked at the boxes of the wossnames in the
closet. The boxes (boxen?) do, in fact, say LEGO. I don't
know if that means that the name 'Lego' is already plural,
or if one is supposed to say something like "Lego toys" to
indicate the plural. Maybe 'Lego bits?' 'Legeaux?'

Incidentally, the boxen of wossnames (1,500 in all) in the
closet don't belong to my kids. They were my Christmas gift
to my beloved. We spent most of the Christmas holiday
playing with them in the dining room. Guess our inner
children aren't all that 'inner,' huh?

Our family got our first computer when I was 11. It was an IBM PC Jr.
Well, Dad worked for IBM and all...

I probably first touched computers many years before that, though, at dad's
work. I remember being quite young...probably 6-8ish, and drawing a picture
of a snowman in ascii characters on an amber[1] screen and printing it out
on an enormous printer that was as loud as a bandsaw. It was one page, and
took about 10 minutes to print...and this was in IBM's own office. :)

I had my first formal computer education at age 12 when my parents sent me
on a one-week computer camp during the summer. I learned a bit more BASIC
than I'd already taught myself, and this horribly confusing thing called
Pascal, and a bit of circuitry that I was rather bad at compared to the
boys[3]. They were hooking up little lights to go back and forth like
KITT[2] while I was trying to figure out just how to make 'em blink. *sigh*

I so badly wanted to make it work...oh well. I still remember what and,
not, and or gates are, sort of.


[1] Back then I'd have called it orange.
[2] Knight Rider, eh?
[3] This could be because the instructor refused to speak to me, and I was
quite the little doormat back then and didn't complain or anything, and
neither of the other two girls who were at the camp had signed up for that
class. *sigh* <sarcasm> Sometimes I wish I had a winkie so I could be
smart too. </>

Well, the name seems to vary from place to place - in Oz and .uk (and


apparently Canada) it's Lego, but here in 'merka they seem to call it

Legos (presumably so they didn't get confused with Leggo brand food
thingies?).

So who knows, in Belgium, perhaps it is Lego's... after all we know that
they're weird over there...

Personally, I think it's just botched pluralization. Most merkins prolly


don't know the name is based on foreign words (legg got, IIRC? play well?),

because of course everything that's anything is Made in the USA and is in

English only. :P

Those would be Eggos. They're waffles. And the slogan is "leggo my eggo."

Possibly, but I have a feeling that they might have "Legos" written on the


boxes. However, I haven't got any Lego here, so I can't verify. Any of
you 'merkins care to confirm or deny?

No - I know about Eggo - Leggo makes italian sauces and things. Not sure
which multinational owns them.

Yeah, that's what I wrote first. It would be that expression in Dutch
too, it's just that I seemed to recall someone referring to it as
'Legos' or possibly Lego's, but I could be wrong.

The usage I've always, uh, used ("Allow myself to introduce.. myself.")
is "Lego" for the toy or a collection of bricks, and "a piece of Lego" for
an individual brick/compenant/piece. A lot of Merkins seem to say "a Lego"
for a piece of Lego and "Legos" for multiple pieces of Lego. Sort of like

I used Lego in university. For marks. And got an A, not to mention fame
and glory that probably still exists. Not kidding...I made a stop-motion
Lego commercial for TV class, and when I went back for graduation, some
first-year student who'd seen it was introduced to me and they were told I
was the one who'd made THE LEGO COMMERCIAL and she actually looked
star-struck. Rather eerie, actually...

Always a good thing! We have some Lego in storage... Kim's from her
