Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by RichB on 3 February 2003 4:20am
I thought it was about time I formally introduced myself so here goes -

1) No mystery about my handle 'RichB' it's my name, Richard Beasley, no secret meaning for the B I'm afraid.

2) I was a little young for MPFC the first time but enjoyed it during the 80's repeats. I also enjoyed watching Ripping Yarns too. The Palin thing came with the advent of 80 Days, a classic piece of TV and still my favourite. I've collected all the videos since then and watched them countless times. I didn't become an avid collector until Hemingway Adventure when I got the book aswell as the video. I made it my goal then to basically collect all things Palin.

3) I'm a spritely 32.

4) This is the one thing I probably don't have in common with Michael, I'm not a dromomaniac. I have been to a number of places, Austria, Germany and France and thoroughly enjoyed them but I'm more of a tourist than a traveller. I have a great desire to travel the world but only to play as many different golf courses as I can I'm afraid and that will depend on the success of my fledgling property business.

5) My next trip will be to EuroDisney in Paris in May hopefully, with my wife and 6 year old daughter. Then Italy in September.

6) I've tried to blow my trumpet over this one in numerous other posts because I live in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, England. The reason for this is it's 10 minutes down the road from Michael's birthplace of Sheffield. It's a typical Northern town, as in the Four Yorkshiremen sketch from MPFC, although I must admit I've never had to clean the road with my tongue.

7) Going against almost everyone's favourite in Full Circle, my favourite travelogue always has and probably always will be Around the World in 80 Days. The time limit, the suspense, Michael's sense of wonderment and naivety on his first long journey, you can't fail to be swept along by it.

Well, I've made it painfully obvious that I've been illin' for the last week, but I'm all done with that now. Please forgive me if I miss anyone...
Welcome Una, Dreamchild, Quaylemonster, and 'thank you' for contributing your intro RichB (how strange....that would be my husbands name as well. The 'B' remains a mystery for us though).
Thank you for sharing your bit's and pieces (and for keeping some of them well hidden....there ARE young ones about).

Tim AKA Quaylemonster - welcome and can I ask in your post no 7 what havent you had the pleasure [email protected]@@
Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Piglet2 on 3 February 2003 7:10pm
Tim meant to tell you that the medical condition you were thinking of getting looked into is Palinitis and there is no known cure sorry - but dont worry we all have it!

Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Quaylemonster on 3 February 2003 8:17pm
Thank you, Lyn. It's good to know there are others out there who share my affliction. By the way, do our types have any colonies about? Or do those bloody lepers get to have all the fun? Anyway, I haven't had the pleasure of experiencing any of Palin's travelogues. This is a situation I plan to remedy in the near future. As for any confusion ensuing from my statement, I accept full responsibility and shall punish myself accordingly.

USA: Tim, just slap yourself with a fish and you will be redeemed.

Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Rusted on 4 February 2003 12:46am

Welcome Tim. :O) We Palinites have colonies of ex-lepers...or, well, at least colonies FOR an ex-leper...or, well, never mind. ;O)

Funny Rich mentioned the popular Palinite favorite of "Full Circle". I have yet to see it (although the book is sitting next to my bed), so I've always been curious as to why so many consider it their favorite. As for 80 Days, the excitement of the first-time experience definitely draws you in...I only wish I could see the last half of it! LOL!

Glad you're doing better, Trixi. As for myself, I went back to school today. :O\ My English (the first core class for English, joy) and Astronomy courses seem like they'll be fine, but I'm not so sure about Spanish. (Well, it's been two years!) We'll see what tomorrow's new classes have in store for me!

LOL, Patty, this is the one benefit that we would have had if we'd had the chat in a mIRC chat program - the option to trout slap someone, including yourself! (It's hilarious, really.)

Tim have you redeemed yourself yet!!!

Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Una Moonstar on 4 February 2003 8:49am
Wow, Mary!

Oshkosh? Really? I went to college there for two semesters (not that I have a degree yet, but I'm not dead yet, so there's still hope). Only a 45 minute drive from where *I* am. Is that cool or what?

As soon as I get a few hundred things settled I'm going to try to go back - hopefull for a double major of History and Sociology, with possibly a Theater minor. It'll take me a long time, especially if I do this half-time like I think I'll have to to keep my full-time job as a lawyer's secretary, but that's what I wanna do! I think that's why I like traveling so much - I get to see where all these really neat things happen.

Sorry it took me so long to respond - I just started to move into a new apartment as well as started rehearsing more times a week for a state community theater competition in Platteville in March, so time's been in short supply. But it's cool to know there's another fan so close! I don't feel so alone now! *grin*

Talk to everybody soon!

Love and Stuff,
Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Rusted on 4 February 2003 9:36am
Una, you're just getting cooler and cooler. ;O)

Very groovy that you went to college here for two semesters! If you come back within the next three years, I might still be there as well. (I don't know if I'm going to continue at UWO or not.)

Good major/minor choices, as well. I'm going for an English major, with either a History or a Theatre minor. I like them both so much it's hard to decide!
Great to see you involved in community theatre! I am as well - I'm not sure if you heard the name Rebel Alliance Theatre at all when you were in Oshkosh, but that's where I do most of my stuff. I've yet to get involved at UWO's theatre, but I've got a lot of time yet. ;O)

It is indeed good to know there's another Palin fan so close. Kind of like a security blanket. LOL.
