Thank you. Grrrr. I couldn't remember what they were called and decided they definitely didn't start with 'p'. Kingdom for a vacation! Or for willpower to go to bed earlier! I also decided postage couldn't be that cheap over there when it's so much more expensive over here.
Yer sorry everyone i'm back again i think i forgot to put my fan club name in it! but i put it on the inside envolope! Oh and all in all the whole thing cost me £4.00 to send to THE US OF A! but i dont mind!
Well what it is, is just a piece of paper which has German, English and french writing on it (More like a £5 even thought it aint a £5 Voucher, It just looks like a voucher you that you would get from like HMV or Boots) With this coupon You put it in the evnolope and when the other end gets it i surppose they use that to send you what u sent them back! It's very confusing!
Sal just wondering. I noticed you have three different registeries. Are you having difficulty signing in under your original one- "SaltheGal" ? Is it not accepting your password? Because others have had that problem.

The SOF (that's Scary and Obsessed Fan, mind you!) in me hopes that there is also a step where PB personally signs our fan club names on each and every photograph, but my hopes are ruined by realization that's he's far too busy for that and knowledge that there are machines that copy celebrities signatures these days... Ignorance is bliss...
Reminds me of the book I'm currently reading: The Autograph Man by Zadie Smith. It's about a guy who makes a living of selling autographs (and about his several personal issues). Whether autographs are real, forged or signed by a machine is a recurring source of worry for this guy.
And I have also been wondering about how personal the signature would become.

Tangent time - I have a first edition book with the author's name written (in ink) in the front. Anybody know how I find out if it's actually an autographed copy? Picked it up in a second-hand store several years ago. It pre-dates mechanized signatures.
I can give you another temp password to sign in your original account and then you can change it yourself. I changed it and e-mailed it to you. Let me know when you get it and acrivate it and I can delete the extraneous accounts.

I wonder how one sells one's personal issues and whether one can make good living off them. I've got a lot...
LOL I just read cg's last post on page 6 and realised that mistake when I looked at my post above it. No wonder you are asking. Before I went to this page of the thread I edited in the missing preposition. Of course I mean: It's about a guy who makes a living of selling autographs (and about his several personal issues). Sorry.

I understood it the first time (and I think Yuliya probably did and was just teasing). ;D I try to spell correctly and say what I mean, but I think Ace's board deletes letters and even whole words sometimes when it thinks no one is looking.
SparklingBlue, of course I understood. I thought for a moment whether I shoulve said it or not, but it was hard to resist; I thought you'd understand. It happens to everyone.
CG, it's not Ace's board. It's a feature hidden in every keyboard - as you type, keys switch under your fingers. Some profies manage to turn it off, but I still haven't found the way to do it and they keep their secrets to themselves. The sneakiest computers even keep those typos transparent to they typist for the first few passes, thus making proofreading useless.
