Guess who's returned from being dead ;-) by Tauriel on 31 March 2006 10:19am
 
Hi everyone, long time no see. :-P

I know I've been gone from this site for some weeks. I've been quite busy, because of school and other things. But I've been posting on Pythonland - I don't really know why I stopped posting here. Probably because I'm posting at three other forums as well, and it's pretty time-consuming to keep up with everything. :-D

Anyway. I'm doing fine. Last week I celebrated my 23rd birthday with my friends. It was a lovely little party, we had home-made pizza and fruit cake with whipped cream and fruit salad and wine and a lot of good tea and a shisha and two guitars and two flutes and we were singing and talking all night long. :-) Very lovely.

I have also send my letter to Michael, about three weeks ago and am now anxiously awaiting a reply. None has come yet, so I'm a bit disappointed, but I suppose he's busy at the moment, but I keep hoping that he'll find a moment to reply. :-) I included a little sort of a carricature of Michael in my letter and I had also painted him a small picture of Spis Castle (which is the largest castle in Central Europe and is near where I live in Slovakia; I have to note here that about half of the letter was my persuading him that he should come to do a travel series here and what beautiful places he should visit. LOL! :-D ). Anyway, both can be seen here:

I also discovered The Rutles a couple of days ago (I managed to download "All You Need Is Cash" through BitTorrent) and I absolutely fell in love with it and with the songs, and now I'm a huge fan, totally obsessed with it. :-D I'm hopeless, really.

Well, there it is, that's my account of what I've been doing when I wasn't posting here. If you have read all this, I apologise for those precious minutes of your time that you lost while doing so. :-P Heh.

You pictures are great. I meant to tell you that this morning. You can be a physicist and a painter. Glad you returned from the dead, but you are not
Romanian. Then, I might have to be nervous.<G>

Hellooooo!! Happy birthday for last week!

Thank you all! :-)

And guess what - I got a reply from Michael on Friday! :-D Well, the letter was only from his secretary, but there was a signed photo included and here's what is written in the letter:

* * *
Dear Maria,

Thank you for your very nice letter to Michael Palin and the lovely picture that you painted for him. Michael does appreciate the trouble people take to write him and always likes receiving interesting letters sent to him from all over the world, but he is sorry that his busy schedule means that he isn't able to write back individually to all of the people who write to him.

I have shown Michael your letter and he has taken the picture home with him and signed a photograph for you.

Wishing you all the best with your studies and future travel plans.

Best wishes,

Mimi Robinson

I'm so happy! :-)))

Lovely photo of Michael, Tauriel! You lucky girl! And he took your painting home with him!

Yes, that's what mattered the most for me! :-D
