The webmaster did let it slip that on the 19th of Feb Michael Palin himself -the real thing - would be on the chat talking to us live - so make a note of it and put reminders everywhere for that date - no time as yet just watch this space OK?

Hey everyone, I hope those of you who tested out the chat program had a fantastic time! I really wanted to join you, but unfortunately it began at 4.30am (EST) here in Australia, and I really didn't have the energy to stagger out of bed at that hour of the morning! I'll definitely try to make it to one of the future chats though!

Michelle :)

rats! Well, I'll try to be there on the 19th. I'm afraid that my typing skills, well, suck! I'll just have to observe (if I can be there....time has NOT been on my side for these chats).

*hits head on desk* i HAVE to be there on the 19
Re: Missed it (again!!!!!!!!!!) by MissFruitcake on 12 February 2003 8:24am
Will the 19th chat be at the same time or thereabouts?
I'm the same as Michelle - I slept through it :)
Re: Missed it (again!!!!!!!!!!) by Rusted on 12 February 2003 5:51pm
I REALLY hope it's the same time or several hours later! (See my other post on why I missed the chat...) I would just be devasted if I missed Michael, especially if I don't know if I'll get to go to one of his booksignings!

If it's at 5:30GMT again I can make it, but not if it's an hour earlier or an hour later...classes get in the way. Having it a few hours later would make it easier on me AND the Australians/NZers. But no whining from me. :O)

Of course, it'd be even better if it was on the weekend, instead, as there are several high school/college students on here who may have classes at that time during the week. Ah well. Wednesday it is.

I agree with Mary; it would be a lot easier for me (a college student) if the chat was on a weekend. I'm in class at 5:30 pm GMT every day of the week. But it's a big lecture, maybe I can sneak out early... I couldn't make the first chat, I refuse to miss this one as well!
