All seriousness I appreciate the nice comment there. I've mainly operated under the assumption that I'm near unnoticable on here, so thanks. Returning the favour I appreciate the long and dedicated threads you put in and also the effort into replying, it's good to have stuff like this for our little community and all, no wonder you've got the amount of thanks . Although answering your question, despite it's rhetoricalness (if that's a word) I doubt it'd make much difference. I think I'd still get teased a fair bit regardless what I do, which sucks but I've long since learnt to live with it.
However the cheeky and sneaky comments were from the rather dim-witted textiles teacher, who was under the impression I was a very sneaky and manipulative person, who was also self-absorbed and arrogant about myself and only cared about my own intersts. Although how she came to that conclusion is rather baffling; I keep my head down in textiles, do the work as best as I can and try and make a decent laugh of it with my friends.
