The Palinites Charter and "Doing a Palin". by rick694uk on 4 December 2002 4:45am
 
Hi-

Having read of Patrick's adventure to meet Michael, I was trying to describe the qualities he displayed to achieve his goal in suitably "Palinistic" terms. But what exactly is a Palinist or Palinite? And what terms could be used to describe them? (Nice? Sorry MP, just kidding!) Friendly? Adventurous? Resolute? Intelligent? Humourous? Fun? Creative? What?

That got me thinking of people doing certain things that have entered the English language as verbs: to do a Delia, to do a Beckham, or whatever.

So, firstly, what would "Doing a Palin" be?

Secondly, and not unrelatedly, if we are going to take over the world, do you think we ought to have a Palinites Charter? Do we have any budding Thomas Jefferson's out there? Or a Moses?

Or should I just stop drinking filter coffee first thing in the morning? :)

Rick

"Doing a Palin"?

Well, considering Michael seems to enjoy going on all these long and interesting trips/adventures/voyages, I'd say...

Doing a Palin (doo-ing ah pay-lin) v.
-do a Palin, -did a Palin. 1) embarking on a great adventure, 2) doing something unique or outstanding, 3) accomplishing or attempting a deed of heroic proportions

How's that?

:O)

Mary!

"Like it! Like it! :-}}}}}}}

Brilliant!

"Go Girl!" :-}}}}}}}

Rick!

"Like it! Like it!" :-}}}}}}}}}}

Hmmmmm, a Palinites Charter. Great idea!!

We did have the sub-branch "Royal Society for the Protection of Michael Palin" (R.S.P.M.P), with the lesser known One Legged Gerbil of Tasmania as a possible mascot and "Of Michael We Protect" as the oath?
But it wasn't a charter as such, more of a potential tax break!!! :-}}}

Yesss.......... a charter........this needs careful consideration as we definately are going to take over the world you know.........really.....truly.........the seeds have been sown..........the net is widening...........the die has been cast..........the cookie's crumbled...........the spam has been canned and the marmite spread!

((Perhaps I should try filter coffee in the mornings!? :-} )

The Charter.....give me a day or two and I'll see what the old grey matter can dream up. It's a bit sluggish at present as I'm going through a major trauma...........Empty Nest Syndrome!!! My "baby" has turned 5 today and she is off to start school tommorrow.

"Sniff :-{{{{{{{{"

No more littlies around the house........

"Big Sob.:-{{{[[[[["

I honestly loved it and shall miss her terribly. Her big sister is 10 and has assured me she'll look after her tommorow, bless her.

So, sorry ,my mind in't quite on the job at the mo', will try to "buck up!"

Yours,with a decidedly soggy hankie...... :-{ but loving your inspirations :-}

AHHH! Ellen, that is soooo sweet!
NOOO! don't give up the spam,filter coffee has only half the desirered effects of spam in the morning.(need i say more?!)
This topic reminded me. Has anyone found out anymore about a get-together, etc? will there be one in england? where would it be in england? what DO you do at a convention? what month/date?
WOW! mind into overdrive. better chill with some marmite and sahara....mmmmm.....blisss...!

Ellen, I'm sure your little one will be okay with the ten year old looking out for her. My big brother did the same for me-- still does sometimes! Big Awwww and a hug from me...
For me, "Doing a Palin" would be ... looking side to side, lifting eyebrows, whilst smiling broadly.
And Mary, your definition is right on.
In Palin we trust,
Helen

Thankyou Mary, little-peep and Helen, for your kind comforting words and hugs :-}

You always cheer me up :-}, regular as clockwork, it's quite uncanny!!

Helen, perhaps discussions of latrines could be added to the list?????????
:-}

Mary, I definitely think your definitions are definitely definitive. Or in hip-hop terms, let's bust-a-palin.

LOL, Helen, love your version of "Doing a Palin"...I can see it now... ;O)

Dotti, do you really definitely think my definitions are definitely definitive?? (I just HAD to say it! LOL!) Where is the Palin you are embarking on, and when are you going?
