FINALLY! by Sophie-Louise on 2 January 2005 3:51pm
i can finally get on this site, haven't been able to for about a week! what has been going on???? i can see from the dates of other people's posts that nobody else has come on it either! i thought michael decided he didn't like his site anymore and maybe he thought his fans were a little TOO eccentric!! lol...

anyway, i hope everyone had a lovely christmas and new year. i spent new years eve in trafalgar square with thomas which was fun!

I had assumed from the start that it was just end of year site maintenance. Most webmasters of sites lock or turn off their sites over Christmas to New Years, to fix a few bugs while usual visitors are out getting drunk or unwrapping presents. But i've been checking everyday nevertheless. Yet i must admit that i had a niggling worry like you,that perhaps the site had packed up for good, at one stage after Jan 1st.

Anyway. With some Christmas money,i've been watching lots of young Michael recently. I bought myself the "Criterion Edition" DVD of Life of Brian from the U.S (been wanting to get it for a few years now). The edition of the DVD with the documentary while they were filming Life of Brian, and the voiceover commentary from all the pythons (Jones and Idle on track 1, and Cleese and Palin on track 2). And includes the deleted scenes, such as the "You're a disgrace to the profession" shepherd scene, and "Pilates Wife" abduction scene. Great disc. Funny insights such as how John Cleese says he was convinced the "Cruxificion?..good" scene would not make it into the final print of the movie.

On a serious note. I had been worried since Boxing day, because i have a girlfriend in Thailand who i was not sure was ok after the Tsunami hit. For a long time, i did'nt here anything from people i tried to contact there. Luckily she's alright,and the area she lives in was not affected. But the loss of life elsewhere in the world has been hideously tragic.

GF-- I am so glad she's alright....

I am also glad the site has been opened again!! Missed it and my fellow palinites...
Anyway, Happy New Year to all!
Gosh, Godfather, I am really happy your girlfriend is alright. I still can't quite believe what has happened...

I wasn't worried at all. Well, maybe just a little bit. OK I was really scared this board was gone forever!!!

yes, finally back on! Thought that when Michael said he was going to take the year off, that he was taking his website with him! Realized just how often I looked here for clever, funny comments ...welcome back and happy 2005....

"And in that time, there shall be rumours of websites going astray. And nobody will really know where lieth... those posts written by Helen who left them on the blathering on section just the night before.....about eight o'clock."

Re: FINALLY! by macauley on 3 January 2005 7:30am
