Talking of the alphabet police, somebody missed 'Lego' which is a proper noun - and inadmissable (where were you Ricardo, Gail?):D

Planting petunias Roy:p


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

The Oxford Dictionary actually states that it is a Trademark (and uses a capital letter)!

Yes, personally I thought it was okay...common usage and all that! As for the trademark, well...just yesterday I was playing retrieving with my dog and when he wouldn't drop the stick I had to shout LEGO! So sue me!


Growing old disgracefully!

Reminds me of the discussion about aspirin that lost its trademark status in a number of countries. Not in Germany but then you have to write it with a capital "A". I think lego ( with lower case "l") is - although the situation is slightly different here - on its way to becoming a generic word for modular construction toys.
