Hey, I'm Indian, we always look for smart, sneaky options, you'll just have to accompany me to India to see how I pull it off. :P
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Sapphire: I've wanted to be a nun, is that a profession at all?

Reminded me of Blackadder goes forth:

Baldrick: You know, the funny thing is, my father was a nun.

Edmund: [firmly] No he wasn't.

Baldrick: He was so, sir. I know, 'cos whenever he was up in court, and the judge used to say "occupation", he'd say "nun".

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I am a part time portrait photographer - it was always at the back of my mind that I should do what I am passionate about. I love it there are not many jobs where people smile at you all the time. And to top it off I love the reaction I get from people when I give them the prints, "Wow!" is a fantastic response, I once had a mum cry because she was so happy with the photograph of her baby - the feel good factor does not get any better than that. :)

Lol Baron, now that's not what I meant by nun. There's an Indian version of it - 'Sanyasin'. Some are genuine, some do whatever they please in the name of religion.

SMS, let Mother Theresa rest in peace, will never take her name in vain, she was simply amazing. If you've ever been to one of her homes for the poor and debilitated in India, you'd be overwhelmed with emotion.

My s/o, an over the top catholic, has been threatening to do that for years. Especially after the first 10 years and finally realizing that there was no way in :oops!: that I would ever convert. Once a pagan always a pagan! :mrgreen:

i'm familiar with son/of but it didn't make sense in your sentence.
