...for me to say goodbye. Yes, it's sad, but I must away into the night. I shall miss you all. Well, some of you. Well, maybe one or two of you. If I could remember your names. Yes, you. Over there. I shall miss you. But probably not you in the corner.

Oh, OK. I'm not going anywhere. But after my first 4,500 posts, I thought it might a good idea to say thanks to everyone here who has given me advice, read my stuff, let me make off-colour jokes, not told me off when I've called Tony Blair a twat or taken the piss out of the Da Vinci Code and generally helped my writing improve to a level where, while I'm not published in print, I'm hopefully closer to it than ever before.

So, thanks. I will raise a pint to you all later. :Hail:

Here's to my next four, five, six thousand posts.

:D Yeah, I just realised I not only managed to type the wrong figure, I did it twice. That's what you get for failing GSCE Maths.

Start a thread about outlines and argue with everyone who posts in the the thread. That should get you to 5000 posts by, say, 9:30 am.

I've called Tony Blair a twat

You've called him worse than that. Luckily most people seem to agree with the assessment.

Now get your camera out - I want footage of you eating a hat.

I'm hoping a nice mod will correct my title. Can't believe I managed to type it wrong twice. What a Tony Blair.

And whose hat am I eating first?

Not anymore. I've said "fuck" so many times in my various published works, it has been determined that the Curse Quota(tm) of the publishing industry has been exceeded. No one will be allowed to swear in a book again until 2019. If the book I just finished gets published, shove that date to 2038.

Sorry, folks. My bad.

Given this is a writers' forum, there should be no shortage of floppy hats. I say *rolls random dice of Hat Doom* Robaieieiaaau's. I bet he's got a big floppy one that tastes of cinnamon ^^

Dear Sir/Madam,

The posting of Birthday wishes in a non-birthday related thread is strictly prohibited.
I believe Silver King has been quite clear on this issue.
