Merry Christmas (I'm British I'm allowed to say it)

Looks like we're going to end up with the Google logo covered in ribbon by the end of it.

The stick figures look like XKCD ones.

BTW, "Hello I'm back on the Internet and on Google Blogoscoped :) Did I miss you? :-P"

I think the proper question is: "Did you miss me?". My answer is "oui, bien sûr".

Oui Oui! J'aime tu!

I'm thinking about, what the story this year is, but I don't have any idea.

Because of the shoes and gloves and bended leg shapes they reminded me more of this little guy:

The big dude is called Daniel Düsentrieb here. Gyro Gearloose in English. His little stick robot is called Little Helper apparently.

Thank you guys
<<I think the proper question is: "Did you miss me?".>>
Each time I use this verb, each time I'm wondering what is the correct order of the pronouns. And each time I'm wrong ^^

Has the holiday logo always been linked to a doodle page before?

Tony Ruscoe [PersonRank 10]

Yes, Colin. Any logos that form a sequence always link to a page which gets updated as new logos are created. Just change the number to see the old ones.

James Xuan [PersonRank 10]

you were right about the bow avrohom

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

So the double " O " got a special treat, and so does the " E " .
I think the next letter to be treated will be the second " G ".

<<you were right about the bow avrohom>>

Thanks – here was the reason I guessed that it wasn't just gonna be ribbon –

They don't usually give a way the whole concept on the first day – it has to be more than that – so I figured prob. a bow (with other stuff)

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

Ribbon..
Somehow this word always reminds me of Seinfeld.. lol.. :P

<<it is!! it's a snow globe!>>

What are you smoking? (whatever it is – I want some.)

Are you addicted to snow globes? That white powdery substance?

No of course not – He's doing the same thing I did over here [Up] blogoscoped.com/forum/119102.h ... – post it before it comes out and pretend it's there – that's what happens when you think the logo looks like the green snow globe from this picture

James Xuan [PersonRank 10]

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

I think it was a let down mainly because the little people left!!! :(

James Xuan [PersonRank 10]
