Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by MissTrixiB on 15 February 2003 8:37pm
Welcome Anna J.....Finland sounds like my part of the world. It was -10 degrees yesterday with a -20 windchill (this is all farenheit). In the summer it will be 90 and humid (as wet as it can get without actually raining). I bet it's totally beautiful there though.
Welcome Tracy.....Hey! I know you! It's pretty obvious as to who I am on Pythonline! ;-)
Now, I'm actually leaving the house and it's NOT work related for a change! Have fun on the site!
(oh, and I really enjoyed Hemmingway Adventure, Tim. I hope you do too. I remember the strangest thing about when I finished it. I tend to read at night and I finished that book at 12:15 a.m. on the 40th anniversary of the death of Hemmingway. I was not aware of the date of his death until I actually finished the book. There was some strange MoJo going on that night).

Thanks, Trixi :)
I guess sweating and shivering with cold may be somehow educative... or something... But basically that cold weather is bearable as long as you've got a roof over your head and the water pipes don't freeze. *thinking positively today*
Best wishes to everyone. Keep your pants on till Wednesday...

First off I picked Gumby because of Micheal's Gumby Flower Arranging...who doesn't like the stuffing of the flowers in the vase! My real name is David, I live on the outskirts of Seattle Wash...about 1 1/2 hours south of BC. I have been a Michael (Python) fan for almost 20 years...going back to my days in high school when me and some freinds would watch Python, then stay up to watch the original SNL (back in 75-76.) My favorite travel show was the trainspotting tale. Although I really enjoyed Hemingway (partly because I got to meet Michael at a book signing...mostly because I thought it was great.) I can't wait to see Sahara. I have traveled....east coast, deep south (took a riverboat up the mighty mississippi to Memphis from New Orleans now that would be a great travelogue for Michael to do)! hint hint nudge nudge! Well... I must sign off now...I think that I have blathered on long enough......no wait I have more to say......NO don't take the keyboard away......NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

USA: I read Hemingway's Chair about 2 1/2 yrs. ago. It was cute wasn't it? A nice first novel by Michael. I hope he does another. He told me he was planning another but that it's on the back burner until these travel projects are behind him.

Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Officer 412-L on 17 February 2003 3:10am
Hey all! I'm new here and I thought what better place to put my first post than this super long and rather interesting thread....so I'll go back and answer all the questions from the original post while trying not to make this obscenely long:

1] Name: My real name is Kelly. The screen name I am using on this board is a reference to Michael's character in "Brazil" [which just so happens to be my favorite film].

2] How long have you been in admiration for Palin and how did it come about? I was introduced to Python when I was 8 or 9 and I was hooked. I have been insanely obsessed ever since [although it took me a while to REALLY understand it]. Palin and Gilliam were always my favorites of the group and I have followed them both incessantly since. I currently am in the process of putting up a massive Terry Gilliam fansite [which should be up in a few days]--and hopefully I can add I Palin tribute onto that [it only seems fitting to me].

3] How old are you? 21

4] Do you have the travel bug too? YES! Unfortunately I am a poor college student whose travels include things like 'a trip to the mailbox' or 'going to that exotic gas station down the street'. I am currently going to two different colleges studying web site design/electronic publishing and anthropology with a focus in archaeology. My dream is to be and Egyptologist.... so traveling to Egypt is my ultimate travel goal although Southeast Asia would be nice.

5] Where is your next trip planned for? Welllllll...good question. If Palin does indeed go to Chicago for a book signing, I'll most likely be making a trip there...that is if I can convince one of my friends to come along with me! [shouldn't be too difficult though!]

6] What city are you from? I am from Minneapolis, Minnesota USA. I'd describe it but I think MissTrixiB nailed it in the first post of this thread! heh. It's cool to see someone at this board that is from the same area! *waves*

7] Favorite Palin Travelogue? hmmmmm...I'm new to his Travelogues so I don't yet have a favorite...I haven't seen/read them all what I have, I have thoroughly enjoyed. Right now I am midway through Pole to Pole and Full Circle...

Alright I think I hit everything,,,i'm going to run now... take care all
Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by MissTrixiB on 17 February 2003 7:07am
Hey there Bruce.....Thanks & HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
I've read 'Hemmingways Chair' as well. I liked it too!
***kelly*** As soon as you mentioned the Terry G site, I just know you were from our frozen tundra here. 2 schools! You poor kiddo! Where are you studying web design? Good luck on everything! I'm sure I'll see you on the boards if not downtown (perhaps at Brit's or Kieren's having a 'Poorman's'). We'll have to start a caravan to Chicago come April and pick up Rusted on the way ;)
Welcome one and all! Enjoy!
Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Officer 412-L on 17 February 2003 7:42am
ahhhh so being a Gilliam fanatic gives away that I'm from Minnesota, huh? hmmm...interesting...heh. yes yes i shall be seeing you around the boards...or true, we could run smack into eachother someday downtown...although we'd never know it. I spend a lot of time wandering down there...I used to regularly go to the local shows at the Quest. But now I tend to spend more time in Uptown...

I'm studying web site design at Hennepin Technical College (bah, I HATE it) right now and I'm on leave from Hamline University (in St. Paul) I should be graduating this year but I just plain ran out of money so I'm auditing some classes here and there--it's a pain.

HA, a caravan of Palinites would be wicked!!! *imagines the insanities that would take place* my friend and I are going to be lugging along a video camera and a few other silly props because we are filming a documentary for our crazy little project called the Gilliam-Burton Project [website coming soon] it is all about out efforts to get either Terry Gilliam of Tim Burton to Minneapolis...insanity that will never work...we figured getting out of the state and promoting and getting it all on film would be a great idea [maybe...possibly]

Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Rusted on 17 February 2003 9:25am
Another college Palinite fan, and near me, too. :O) Hello Kelly!

I'm the one Trixi referred (picking me up along the way to go see Michael in Chicago??????? I'd love you to death, Trixi, as I don't know if I'm going to be able to get a ride and if he doesn't come clsoer to Chicago that means no Michael for Mary! *sniff*) to...I'm in Wisconsin!

I liked Hemingway's Chair as well. Although, feeling the way I do about Hemingway, I related more to the female character. ;O) (Shhh, don't tell Michael!)

Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Dianne on 17 February 2003 11:44am
Welcome to the new members who have joined us here at Palinís Travels. The more Palinites the merrier. At least I think so . . . how about if we go out somewhere in the middle of nowhere, the Sahara for example, and start up our own little town and call it, what else, but Palinite! We could be the new Timbuktu of the Sahara! Instead of slowly declining, we would be inclining? No, wrong word there. :-) We would be growing in popularity and once a year we could hold a festival and Michael would come because we named the town after him.

What a load of twaddle I write sometimes. :-)
Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Officer 412-L on 17 February 2003 7:42pm
Hey Mary!
So where about are you in Wisconson? Wicked! another fan so close! We should just get a van and pick up Palinites on the way to Chicago...fun times...heh. We'd all be even more loony than when we started...;)
