I'm not ahamed, the priest is pretty big, like 6'4" 270-280 lbs big.  :D

This has nothing to do with anything, but since it's the random thread-

You are from Norway, yes? Did you find it really confusing to go from the metric to English system? I thought of it because you said "lbs".

And most people here are American (atleast most of the ones I talked to), so when I direct something to them, I put it in the American system. :laugh:

That's not the English system, it's American. Over here they don't ever refer to people's weights in lbs, they use stones. Of course, I understand neither one despite having spent most of my life in the UK so I constantly have to work the figures back in kg.

Ta en kopp med mel og sleng det oppi bollen sammen med en miks.
Søte ting er best, men ikke sitronknoller, en dæsj med salt bare litt.
Bakingen er en kjempehit og en teskje med vanilje.
Gjør det med ett flir og tell til fir for vi gjør det jo med vilje.

They're okay. I generally find they're more symphonic ballady singles to be better than the bulk of their album material.
