    We have a new thread what? Except can we change the name to TSR Christian Soc, rather than THE christian soc. Just doesn't feel the same....

    EDIT: and now I'm gonna have to change my sig. Bah.

    P.S on the illness front. It's tonsillitis. Didn't get Abx as GP thought it sounded more viral and he thought it was only mild. As it happens I'm getting worse. (it keeps coming in bouts, like I feel awful then ok then awful. Right now I'm really feverish... and my tonsils are looking worse. ffffffffffffffffffffffff

    WHY? I was ill over christmas last year but this is worse.

    I don't know why I put that, corrected anyway :yep:

    Oh no. Well hope you are alright. :console: I'll be praying.

    Don't know if it is true or not, but I heard you can eat lots of ice cream after tonsillitis. So that could be an upside :ninja:

    The post you quoted me in has gone! But yes, I understood completely what you mean. Bex (I think it was her?!) once posted a "letter from God" and that verse was quoted in there, in a slightly different form. It could have knocked me over. It was so relevant to my life! :eek:

    Edit: and my quote is at the top! :love:

    Beautiful new thread :love:

    Was just wondering, would it be possible to put the shape of the quotes into a cross...or would that not work? If not, it looks like a Christmas tree which is epic anyway :yep:

    Its exactly what I was going for actually, but then I realised that I needed to post the new thread before someone became tired of waiting/ unknowingly made a new thread whilst I was gathering relevant quotes.

    I can do it now though :bigsmile:

    Though I also like the Christmas tree look, fitting for the time of year :cute:

    YAY!

    Btw, I don't know what you mean about it not being surprising that I'm second on the old thread. I don't post in there much coz I'm so studious and doing uni work, don't you know? :yep: :confused: :eyeball: :ninja: :yep:

    Oh, and GEG: you bargain like a true Scot. You can have the 99%.

    Not surprising about me and Willow, he works 9-5...in other words TSRs 9-5.

    It's always a good day when you contribute over 10% of the posts of a thread! Esp when I only started posting on that thread after 2367 posts had already passed

    OK guys, VERY important prayer request:

    My ex-tutor Alex (one of my mother figures too!) is pregnant and is due to give birth to a baby girl on Christmas Day! Please can we all keep her, her husband and the baby in our prayers this week for a safe and relatively pain-free delivery (the nutcase wants a natural birth :lolwut: ). Who knows: this could be the Second Coming :ninja:

    It is surprising about Willow, he joined way after a lot of the the guys who posted did. Then again, in the last few months he's been as active as you. If anything, at times, its just him and you nattering away

    I'm impressed. Or worried for you work. Not sure which... :unsure:

    I never got that stereotype. I quite like kids. I even work with kids. But then again, I'm perfectly open to the possibility that I'm odd.

    Though, I don't want a kid now, if thats what you meant by men running away :ninja:
