Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Lindill on 4 February 2003 12:43pm
So many introductions. Time to add another male. I will be brief.
My name is David Lindill (can't be bothered with making up names). I've been a Python and Palin (My favourite) Python) fan since it started. Yes, old enough to be the father of many of you, but I'm safe as I have no kids. I loved Python because my parents didn't understand it, couldn't see what was so funny. It is great to see how well the humour has lasted and how well it translates to other cultures(I guess so much is visual). So much of what drives Michael is about unusual people, places and things. So much to see, so much to learn, so many suprises. I am 46 and have had the travel bug since I was a student. My next trip will be to China (for work), then the US and later in the year back to the UK. I'm from Yorkshire, Bridlington to be precise. I have spent time in Sheffield and lived in Ipswich and Teddington. I know Teddington lock well. I have also lived in Japan and the USA, but home is now Melbourne, Australia. I have travelled in Europe, the Middle East (before the troubles) and through Asia but there are still so many places I have not visited. I have yet to visit Africa or South America. I love all Michael's work, alhough I have not yet seen the Hemmingway series. I think Round the World was the best as it was the original. Finally I am an accountant as well as a Yorshireman. Oh and I used to play cricket.

USA: Geesh. Don't tell me that, Lyn....! WHERE is Russell appearing in May? And front row seats! How did you manage that? (I have a very interesting story about how I obtained 4 third-row seats to see the Bealtles when they came to Baltimore in'64. But surely you didn't use that technique.)
Anyway, isn't Russell remarkable? I mean, his background doesn't fit what he might ordinarliy have accomplished in life. And his voice is so clear and touches every fiber of my being. Some of his songs bring tears to my eyes. By the way, did you see his appearance at Donald Trump's "Taj Mahal"? My God, he won me over after the first few notes. I hope he doesn't over-expose his talents or get steered in the wrong direction. He could easily ruin his career and his voice if he isn't managd correctly. Pray he makes the right decisions. My friend and I are waiting very impatiently for an appearance in the Washingtomn, D.C. area. So far, in the USA, he sticks to California and N.Y., mostly.


Anyway, where in May?

Lyn, you'll be glad to know that I had a friend drop a 16-ton weight on me yesterday and all was right again.

To interupt all of this swooning and heart thumping.....
Welcome David Lindill. Looks like you'll have many wonderful things to add to this site. Can't wait to 'hear' about more of your travels. I wouldn't think twice about *gasp* age. Humor seems to keep us all young, yet the knowledge that we gather as we travel gives us wisdom beyond our years. There is no old or young here. Just happy and well travelled.
Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Rusted on 5 February 2003 8:26am
Just to add to what Trixi said, David...I'm very impressed by your traveling! (I'm very impressed by several Palinite's traveling, actually!)
Sounds cool! Care to share any funny/interesting travel stories?

See, folks? Accountants can be very interesting! ;O) (Anyone else notice it seems to be a pretty common career here on the Palinboard? LOL.)

Seriously, David - welcome!

Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by MrsWiggum on 5 February 2003 9:15am
I'm about a month late in posting my introduction, and I've posted just a few times, but here goes:

1)Name: My name is Katie. My alias is MrsWiggum because I am a Ralph Wiggum fan (from The Simpsons).
2)How long have you had this admiration for Palin and how did it come about? I have admired him since I saw the Monty Python-a-thon on Comedy Central on New Years 1995. Is it sad I remember the exact day? :) I sort-of knew who he was from A Fish Called Wanda and stuff before that, but not too much til I started watching Monty Python, which I would RUN home from school to watch every day.
3)How old are you? 22
4)Do you have a travel bug too? Yes. I have traveled with my mom all my life. Nothing too exotic, really, but it's still fun.
5)Where is your next trip planned for?-Probably New York in the summer. Hopefully I can make it back to London in the near future. I only got a taste of it in 2001 on a band trip in college (stop laughing at me!)
6)What city, country are you from (and tell us a bit about it)? - I'm from Schaumburg, Illinois, USA. It's about 30 miles from Chicago. It's your average suburban city. About 75,000 people. Home of the largest shopping mall (without a roller coaster), Woodfield.
7)What's your favorite Palin travellogue? My favorite is still the first one I saw--Around the World in 80 Days. I honestly love EVERY one, but that's my favorite. It was such a cool concept to me. It's interesting and I can pick up new information from it, but at the same time, I am constantly amused. But that goes for all of them, I guess.

Ok, enough rambling from me. I hope I can post regularly here and get to know some of you. I'll try my best to get to the chat, if I can get away from work!

Welcome David and Katie - it never ceases to amaze me the age range of us all yet we seem to be on the same wavelength

David did you see Michael in OZ? what was it like from a male point of view - is that any different to the postings we get from us ladettes? any photos to show?

we can always hop over to the travel series chatterbox section there are some very interestng threads there too.

Welcome all new people - and tell us all about yourselves

Hi Katie, David and Tim :-}}

Really nice to met you and read all about you.

There's no shame in accountancy David, very honourable position to have. But just out of interest, had you ever been tempted to tame lions professionaly?? :-}
