I was wondering if using applescript I can change the output of my name in adium in a sequence, rather than randomly.

This is what I have so far.

on substitute()


set theStart to some item of {"When you wish upon a star...", "Richard's changing status", "My Weeping guitar", "My new home planet : Spiciam", "Richard the sane", "Hello World", "Sing-a-Song"}

set theGreeting to {"Yeah... and I'm sad!", "But at the same time I'm really happy that something can make me feel that sad...", "It's like... it makes me feel alive, y'know? It makes me feel human.", "The only way I could feel this sad now, is if I felt somethin' really good before, so I have to take the bad with the good.", "So I guess what I'm feelin' is, like a beautiful sadness... I guess that sounds stupid..."}

set result to "+" & theStart & "-" & theGreeting & "+" as string
return result

delay 5

end repeat

end substitute
It just stays on "Yeah... and I'm sad!" at the moment...

I really would like some help on this because than I can use this for lyrics too.
