    As long as it's not Sarah Palin, that's cool.

  2. Jocelyn says:

    Imagine what I could see out my back door if it were Sarah Palin: Alaska!

  3. Pearl says:

    And I know YOU so it's like me and Michael Palin are buddies now…

    OK, so that puts me at 3 degrees from Michael and 4 from all the other cast members. *swoon*

    … you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.

    But you can walk the St. Bernard.

    To continue this line of connectedness: I know you (virtually, but still) and I saw Michael Palin once in the Crystal Room at Tavern on the Green in Central Park, NYC. I think those double lines of separation make us all third cousins or something. Or at least unable to marry each other. Not that I would want to marry Michael Palin. Or you, although I might consider a wild weekend.

    Thanks to you and the Google, I now know what triturate means.

    Really! That's amazing.
    That last house looks so hobbit like that I want to hug it.

    What a wonderful adventure! This looks so cool, I would love to stay there. Could you book me a room when Mike (I think I can safely call him that, since we are so close now that you are only 2 lines away) will be there as well? Clean linens and fresh coffee in bed would also be nice. The St. Bernard also could bring some alcohol if s/he so desires.

    What an amazing countryside – and did you know Michael Palin is a writer of books? Or at least one. I read it a couple years ago. Hemingway's Chair, I think it was called.

    Michael Palin. Inn-sit, You?! (cue rim shot) How very cool. How very beautiful. How very lucky!
    How very educational–am heading now toward dictionary to verify meaning of "triturate"…

    Take care of St. Bernard, fluff a few pillows, provide some breakfast, you can't even claim to be repressed… (cue hook) Enjoy!

    That? Is amazingly cool and you all totally deserve a little time with some modern luxuries.

  11. monica says:

    wow – how cool is that!! sleeping until past 4.30 am! Makes one consider to pop down , ring on that intercom and demand newly fluffed breakfast.. and insinuate one is a Michael Palin type of person, and if you don't treat us the way we want we might write books about it… LOL!!!

  12. geewits says:

    I think this is so cool. First that one couple offered you a place and then wanted to charge you out the aspirin. Then this other couple makes a genuine offer that is fun and you are all having a good time and enjoying life. Yay for the German couple! That other couple can suck aspirin.

    If I had a little more money I'd be booking a stay at your Fairy Chimney Inn right this minute…because, wow, that is seriously cool!

  14. unmitigated me says:

    I have the books of all of Michael Palin's BBC travels! And for Christmas, Jim got me the DVD box set of all the BBC videos of same. Love me some Michal Palin! If you get a chance, I highly recommend the books, just so you can see the beautiful photos by Basil Pao.

    That's it, I am coming to visit you the second I win the lottery.

  16. Pam says:

    "…the owners wanted to go to Germany to visit family and we were, um, in the area, looking bored". I am obviously in the wrong areas looking bored.I have to work on this!

    Well crap. I read this post and thought I had left a comment. But seems I just creeped you and snuck off.

    You have a remarkable talent for approaching your topics from the most obtuse angles. Half the time I don't have a clue where you're going to go and am then amazed at how you got there.

    'And Now For Something Completely Different'was probably the third movie I ever saw in a theatre. I was 12. I went with my pregnant sister-in-law (22) and the most memorable moment was when she hissed at me to put my hand on her bump 'cause my nephew Mark was kicking.

    Well. I just did some fact-checking and apparently this is untrue. I did have a SIL who was preggers and we did go to a movie together and I was agog in an eeww sort of way to feel an unborn baby kicking my SIL's navel, but the film apparently wasn't anything to do with Monty Python since this would have been in 1969.

    And you think YOU get sidetracked??

    so like maybe if you get bored you could re-enact the french taunting and add a turkish twist to it?
