Oh God ! There'll Be Nothing Of Him Left !!!!!! by ellenpc on 24 October 2002 12:40am
 
As the news of the book signings continue, I'm getting more and more nervous that by the time Mr P gets to NZ in the New Year there'll be nothing left of his right arm, vocal chords or his general stamina!

So can I appeal to all you fans still to meet him "Please be gentle with him, he's an endangered species, sincere celebs are thin on the ground!!"

Michael, please take care of yourself......:-) though you do deserve all of this attention.

anxious fan in NZ

Ellen,
I was also thinking of his general health and well being throughout this grueling book tour.
I second the sentiment expressed-- Michael, remember to drink lots of hot tea to soothe the throat, (Ricola cherry lozenges are nice, too), get plenty of sleep and good food. We will promise to be good to you. We treasure you.
Are you able to operate a clutch wearing wing tips?
Be well, and sushi is actually quite easy to digest. Miso soup is full of much needed protein... but I digress.

(also a 91/2 - 10 shoe, but most certainly a size 10 boot.)

hmmm well since he has circumnavigated the globe and visited various Poles and crossed the Sahara desert and etc etc then I think he will survive a book signing tour! lol he was losing his voice though when I met him.

Helen, Isn't it illegal to operate a clutch wearing wing tips????????

It all sounds a bit fishy to me ....oops, no thats the sushi ( I know, I know, major groan!) It's the anxiety, see what it does to me!

Perhaps now is as good a time as any to create the RSPMP ( Royal Society for the Protection of Michael Palin). He could be up there with the Panda, the Sumatran Tiger, the Arizona Otter and the little known One Legged Gerbil of Tasmania.

Oh No!!! Its started already...... How much of his voice had gone hendo? Was he down to a gruff grumble or more of a squiffy squeek?

God this is like torture, quick where's my brown paper bag I need to breathe slowly and calmly....... iiiinnn - ooouuuttt, iiinnn - ooouuuttt, iiinnn - ooouuuttt

Ellen,
RSPMP---Sign me up! I promise not to even think of getting into my car with wing tips. You caught me!
I love pandas! They like sushi.

We met the lovely man himself in Dundee (on Monday) - and he did sound a bit hoarse! Be assured though, that he had a cup of something soothing by his side...........Bless.

Aww dunnfran, you should`ve taken the poor bloke some medicinal scotch, I`m sure you`ve got plenty up there!

Roy and I need Our Hero restored to full health for next Thursday`s London talk, yippee.

Oh, Ellen, we`d both like to join the RSPMP please!

Louise

Helen, Louise (and Roy) you're in! :-}

'Palin Protectors Unite!!'

( that would look good on a banner, especially when hoisted aloft in the book signing queue; though we could run the risk of scaring the poor guy witless.He deciding to protect himself and legging it!!)

Perhaps a secret handshake to get the ball rolling.
The first secret handshake across cyberspace????????

Or a list of "Palin protecting" oaths that we could swear to ( a bit like when you join the Brownies)

Or perhaps I need more sleep and some anti-anxiety medication.....:-0

Yours all a tremble
Ellen

Fanatstic, then!
Let's get him a cuppa hot Earl Grey, stat. Then he can sit in the comfy chair until lunch time, with a cup of coffee at 11.
