Meeting Michael... by germanladyinnorway on 22 March 2007 3:39pm
If you had the opportunity to meet Michael and ask him a question (besides asking for an autograph), what would that be?

Mine would be:
Is there a goal or a dream or sth you haven't archieved yet? And if yes, what would that be?

But I guess I will never have the chance to meet him (or a other member of the Pythons...)

I would ask him if I could drink wine from out of his dimples. Then Mrs. Palin would deck me. Or I'd faint before I could ask him anything. Either way I'd be unconscious.

hahaha canaveralgumby!!

I'd probably ask if he had any good advice on how to get into the film/television business for me.

I think I'd ask for a hug and then tell him I admired him and his work. Then I think I would ask him what kind of books he likes to read. :) Seems like a very intimate detail about someone so I'd like to know.

*laughs insanely at Cori's plan*

My thoughts exactly, Mary! I'd ask if he kept in touch with people he'd met while filming.

Why thank you, Heather. LOL.

Ooh, you mean like people he met in other countries? Good question!

The closest I ever got to a Python was Eric Idle. The year was 2000. The place NJPAC (New Jersey Performing Arts Center), Newark, New Jersey. Everyone in the orchestra was fair game to be pulled out of the audience and on stage. Someone briefed him well, for he was able to speak about local affairs.

Now to answer Lena's question. If I met Mr. Palin, I would ask him the following:

May I write his biography?
What would he like us, his fans to do in his name or carry on his legacy?

When I met him I mainly asked after his wife as she was pretty ill at the time...oh and he apologised to me for having to wait four hours to see him! Wot a NICE man :)

When I met him, I forgot nearly everything I really wanted to say. lol. But I did ask him if he minded when I wrapped my arm around his waist and he said, "No, not at all!" And then he joked when I was trying to find him and my friend in the viewfinder of a camera. I was so giddy, I had trouble. He said, "OH! I didn't realize we were THAT far away!" In actuality, it was only a matter of about 10 feet! (This was pre-digital camera, in 2000)
