The BIG 7-0! by SpamalotGirl on 31 August 2009 4:06am
all the pythons are entering their 70's-
john cleese being the first.

i don't know about you, but i think they're all ageing rather gracefully.

anyone feel the same?

SpamalotGirl: How does a Python 'age gracefully'...??

Does this prohibit throwing any more strops or hissy-fits? Does it mean you have to calm down and be an utterly boring person?

BTW: the use of BIG in thread titles is copyright :)

What does that mean??

I think she meant physically.
And if "not boring" means throwing strops at people (the only word I understood), I'm telling you: I just might be the most boring person on the planet... Damn.

And bIG is copyright, not BIG. :)

Yes, their outlook on life and activities are helping them age gracefully.

Amaia, "hissy-fit" is a slang term for a tantrum. :)
My grandparents all lived to push 100. The Pythons are merely in midlife, and will be so until 90.

I have to day Michael is looking excellent, I know he's a way off 70 but still...gorgeous!

All the women in my family live to be around 100, the men not so long. What's THAT tell you!?! Oh dear....
Re: The BIG 7-0! by mrsteabag on 1 September 2009 5:35pm
There's a lot of future 80 y.o. men who should watch it when we get up there?;)

Amaia: Thanks! Yes,I meant bIG,not BIG,which is simply capitals of big.

My other statement was somewhat twisted and wrong,because the opposite of throwing strops is to be calm,collected and sensible. On the other hand, a 'boring' person is anyone who has nothing interesting to say and is very negative in outlook. So I would not think you were at all a 'boring' person,and there is nothing wrong with being calm,collected and sensible,which is what you obviously are.

The slang term 'hissy-fits' is often used in connection with 'megastar' Elton John,because he excels in throwing them. :)
