Hi everyone - room for one more new person?
This site is great, I've just been reading Michaels diaries from his travels and they have me in stiches laughing, he's such a good writer. It's about time that a site like this was made!
I've been a fan since I was 12 ( am 20 now) mainly of Monty Python but then of all the travel series and basically anything Michael has done. I too have seen the Missionary and would reccomend it to anyone.
If it helps me to get accepted I'd like to include that my shoe size is 5 1/2 - 6.( european size - from Ireland)but I always wear a 6 in a runner. I also worked in a shoe store over the summer and learned a lot about feet and shoe sizes - if anyone's interested to know!!!
Well anyway better go - there didn't seem this many young MP fans when I first started visiting sites - now there's loads -it's brill.

Layla,
welcome!
I need to see the Missionary.. did you see American Friends? It's very sweet.
How awesome that you know so much about shoe sizes. We have been waiting for you.
What is the American equivalent of a size 39 German shoe?
We have been dying to know!
Helen

Thanks Helen, I haven't actually seen American Friends - I do always be looking out for shows/films that I haven't seen yet so maybe I'll get to see it soon enough.
As for the shoe size - that's slightly tricky as we didn't deal with American sizes so much. I was there( California) last year though and I was a 7 1/2 so I thought that American shoes were 2 sizes ahead of UK sizes. But if you look at runners you'll find that there is only a difference of one between the 2 sizes. The only thing I know is that a 39 is a size 6 in UK size - if that's any help. In America it's either a 7 or an 8 then...

Size 6! that's it!
Thank you for detangling the web of mystery.

no problem! In a world where the norm is to be either superman or supergirl, I frequently change into Anti-Shoe-Distress girl. Be it a tight shoe you cannot remove, or a broken heel as you're about to enter a nightclub, or even a stressful situation where you cannot decipher the different complex international shoe sizes - you can be sure that Anti-Shoe-Distress girl will soon come to your aid and heroically make the world a foot friendly place again...
(By the way I'm not normally this m/sad - I swear!)

Bless your heart, Anti Shoe Distress Girl!!!
What do you do about the VERY warm boot that marinates your foot in your own sweat--- making your feet look like wrinkled prunes at the end of the day? Not to mention the socks I can wring out because they are so soggy?
this really sucks! Can you feel my distress?
 
Re: New Too by Layla on 20 November 2002 4:43pm
 
yes, I deal with cases like this daily - the only advice I have is work less, walk less and if you have to walk, then walk barefoot... watch out for glass though...!!
 
Re: New Too by Helen on 20 November 2002 4:57pm
 
excellent advice. I have been trying to work less for years-- now I have a reason.
Thank you!

Being a newbie here myself, I must welcome you Layla - or should I say...Anti-Shoe-Distress Girl? ;O)

There's been a bit of talk about Palinites meeting up/chatting and I must mention that it HAS worked before amongst other internet groups. I've been on a e-list for two years that has many little get togethers and a big gathering (with organized raffles, music, dinner, and camping) in California once a year. I'm also running the weekly chat for the group, which is great fun.

So getting something like a convention organized would probably take some time, but that doesn't mean it could never happen in the future.

The chat sounds like fun and should be easy enough!
