My friend and I have an idea to create a message folder for Thomas Johansson, nothing as big as what we are doing for Pim Pim tho.

We both think it would be a great idea and really hope other Tojo fans want to help with it.

So whos thinks this would be a good idea and would like to put forward their messages and things for Thomas??

I'm sure he'd love it!! :wavey: :D

Hey it's Margaret here, thought I better show up on MTF (I managed to remember my password/username) =)

I don't think we'll get a Thomas T-shirt, probably just the messages in a folder. I think I'll get the PimPim shirt then add ToJo on it.

I'm going to buy the display folder tomorrow to put the messages in. (How many pockets did you get in your folder Kristen? What else should I add to my shopping list?)

Any other ideas welcome =)

I got the 24 pocket folder for Joachim.
Umm... the other thing you might want to look at is what kind of paper you want to use? Coloured / design on it... Can't really think of much else just now :)

Glad you remembered your log in details!

Hello again!

I was thinking maybe if we don't get enough fans a folder would look a bit empty. A plastic sleeve would probably look more full even if there were only a few messages then we could add posters, articles or pictures etc. I'm sure he would be touched!

It would be good if you guys can start sending me messages so it won't be a last minute thing and I could get it ready in December =)

Thanks guys,
Margaret

Hi (again!)

How can I put a picture /photo on my posts like yours? (like Kristen's Jurgen Melzer)
Sorry I'm just not that computer literate =)

Kristen

Just above where it says "Post Reply" on this page, click on User CP.
Then, on the left side you'll see the control panel where you can "Edit Avatar". Click that ;)
If you want to add one from your computer, scroll to the bottome of the screen. Just make sure it's no bigger than 140 by 140 pixels or 9.8 KB. :)

Hey Siobhan!

You can send the letter anyway you want. You know my e-mail address if you wanna e-mail it and I can tell you my home address via e-mail if you wanna send it via airmail =)

Aleksa's Laydee

Hey Siobhan,

When you said pm I thought you meant postmail? what IS pm? how do you open it? Thanks =)

jmgsdoubsprtnr
11-16-2004, 11:59 PM
PM= private message. you can read them by clicking where it says "welcome margaret_gn" and you can click on "Private messages" it's up near the top right of the page. you might have to scroll up to see it.

Aleksa's Laydee

Hey Siobhan,

Oh sorry for the confusion...a private message on here :)

Hey there jmgsdoubsprtnr =) want to write a message for ToJo? would be good if we get more!

By the way guys I've bought this blue pocket folder, and I was thinking of wrapping around it a yellow ribbon to make it look like the Swedish flag and then put all the messages in there. So when I give it to ToJo he can keep using the folder to put other fan messages in the future :)

jmgsdoubsprtnr
11-18-2004, 06:16 AM
that's a good idea (the ribbon thing). but i'm not sure about writing a message. it'd be nice, i know, but i haven't even gotten around to writing one for my favorite johansson (pim pim) so maybe, if i can think of something to say!! i'm a fairly lazy person (well, more than fairly). plus, i've never met tojo or even seen him in person. i know those are crappy reasons for not writing anything. so i'll think about it.

C'mon guys...at the moment I've got 4 people writing messages for Thomas...imagine this:

ToJo and PimPim chatting after a practice session.
PimPim: Geez I never thought I had this many fans before...this girl came to me with a folder full of letters and messages, over a hundred...I counted!
ToJo: Really? I thought tennis was dying...considering I won The Aus Open 3 years ago, I only got 4...I counted too!

It doesn't matter if it's just a very short message, or even just a sentence...just pm it to me (private message - now I know what that means :) ) or e-mail to margaret_gn@hotmail.com
Thanks pple!

Kristen
11-23-2004, 09:20 AM
:lol: Margaret!
Were you talking to Siobhan lately? Because we had the same convo last night :haha: saying that they'd get involved in a fight because they were jealous of pimpim, and them they'd all be injured except for Thomas E, because he wouldnt get any :sad: LOL!

Oh, by the way... I'm almost done with the ToJo letter!
I'm so proud! I thought I'd never get it done!

margaret_gn
11-23-2004, 09:31 AM
No I wasn't in a conversation with Siobhan actually, but I've been thinking about it LOL and since I thought the Swedes are pretty close, they WOULD eventually find out if PimPim got more than all of the others' added up together multiplied by 10 to the power of 3 and plus 1 =)

BTW Siobhan I've printed the letter and photo in colour, so all the smilies are yellow :) and also they don't fit in one page so I printed the photo and letter on 2 separate pages and paperclipped them. Would you rather I stapled them or any other way of attaching them together? (so ToJo kows they're from the same person)

Kristen
11-23-2004, 01:42 PM
lol, the letters option is available for all the Swedes (I wrote a small message on the yahoo group for Swedes, lol. bold, but small)... maybe we could all write a group letter for Thomas or something, and have everyone's name and country beneath it :) hehe

I might start a new thread, so I can focus on ToJo here :lol:

Hi guys,

I've got a photo of the folder that I've scanned into a cd, how can I put that in my post? Anyone knows? Thanks!

Kristen
12-13-2004, 07:54 AM
If it's saved on your computer, when you go to put up your next post here, click on 'manage attachments' and you can upload it straight from your computer. Sorry, that was really vague! I'm kind of rushing through threads I havent seen for days :eek:

margaret_gn
12-13-2004, 10:28 PM
it's not working :( everytime I clicked on update file(s) it says 'please wait' then after a while the screen just goes all white (blank), I've tried this so many times :confused: ...I'll try using it as my avatar for a while so everyone can see then, hope it's not too big!

margaret_gn
12-13-2004, 10:33 PM
aargh...it's too big!!!

Kristen
12-14-2004, 01:18 AM
If you want, you can email it to me and I'll do my best to fix it so it works?

Devotee
12-31-2004, 04:06 AM
Hey, Margaret :wavey: I Emailed you a Swede fan letter to your address
margaret_gn@hotmail.com
I want to verify that you did receive it.

margaret_gn
12-31-2004, 07:52 AM
Hi Devotee, I actually sent you an e-mail saying I did receiveyour letter and I have printed it out. I'll pass it onto Jonas since I'll see him in Melbourne. But somehow I received an e-mail from Hotmail saying the delivery was delayed but that I didn't need to resend it. So I don't know if you ended up receiving my e-mail. This also happened to 2 other e-mails I wrote 2 days ago...

wubenzhimu
04-17-2005, 10:50 AM
sorry,I mean what items shall I write in the letter?

Kristen
04-17-2005, 11:40 AM
If you get stuck on what to write, this is sort of how I wrote to Jonas last year.
INTRO
-Who you are
-What you do / Where you're from

THE PLAYER
-When/Where you first saw/heard about him?
-How did he get your attention? What made him stand out from the crowd?
-Stand out matches / head to heads etc.
-Have they influenced your opinions on tennis?

CONCLUDE
-Re-hash the above points, if you want to thank / congratulate them for something.
-Wish them all the best
-Sign off. Some people like to leave an email address.

:D

That's more or less what I have done for Gaston...A friend had offered to collect messages for him and will give them to him during next week, if all goes well! :D The hardest is to begin to write. Once you've started, it's hard to stop! ;)

Aleksa's Laydee
04-17-2005, 01:42 PM
god im gonna be giving out SO many letters :haha:

Melissa10
07-09-2005, 02:53 PM
I dont get it. The letter is exclusive for Swedes only? :sad:

Aleksa's Laydee
07-09-2005, 02:59 PM
Well we decided that at the Grand Slams, Wimbledon and Australian Open some fans would write letters to Thomas and then one of us from this forum would give them to him

Margaret gave him letters in the AO this year

None gave me a letter to give him at Wimbledon

Its not for Swedes only but as this is Thomas's forum...people here will write a letter for Thomas and it'l be given to him

Im sure other forums do similar for other players :)

Aleksa's Laydee
07-10-2005, 11:48 AM
:lol: shall we just do it on the 2 GS's one at the beg of the year and one in the middle of the year? Coz we wont have much to write to him otherwise will we? :scratch:

margaret_gn
07-11-2005, 06:34 AM
yeah that's a better idea... and noone here lives in the US anyway, while a lot of us can go to the aus open and french/wimbly :)

Aleksa's Laydee
07-14-2005, 11:41 AM
Didnt i tell you??

Oh well he was being moved along quickly by security guards but i managed to pop my head in between them and said 'Thomas this is for you' He looked at it then at me and said 'Oh Thank you' smiling looking shocked!


Then this girl spoke Swedish to him and he chat with her for about 1 min so i walked up to where he would be walking in and i saw him clutching the card :awww: i wont forget that moment!! :)

margaret_gn
07-14-2005, 12:08 PM
