  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
amessage for Michael (my idol) by abskii on 8 October 2004 11:30am
okay,I'm new here. But I have somthing to say.

A few months ago, I joked about being a bridesmaid to a work mate. When she later asked if I was serious, I baulked - the wedding was in Pakistan.
(consider the kind of things that have been in the news in the UK in recent months, and the misgivings of my mother)
Being sensible, I went to our trusty British Embassy website for advice, which said, basically,
''all travel to Pakistan is strongly discouraged for travellers of a visible western origin''
I changed my mind about going. Then I decided to see what I was going to miss out on, and did some more research. I found very encouraging information, and even happened upon a Michael P. interview in which he said ''Pakistan is about as dangerous as London''

I was swayed. I trusted my cool, handsome, and knowledgeable idol. My mind was again made up. I went, and had an amazing time, with so many stories and memories. I didn't regret it for a second. (I even kept a Palin-style diary)

So Michael, thank you for(inadvertantly) making me see sense.
You're a star. :)

(And if the October Ottakers MiltonKeynes book signing goes ahead, look out for me!)
