Stuck In The Pashtun Lane

Physically and emotionally wiped. Several new posts and astrological readings are in the offing, but not today. Definitely next week. Today, filler. Sweet visual filler.

Reading Michael Palin's Python diaries, which my son gave me to celebrate the Birth of Christ (I know -- the irony is a bit much, but he's young). Plenty of ripe Python gossip and anecdotes. I rewatched some of the sketches Palin dissects, looking at them from a new angle. While cruising the Pythonsphere, I came across one of my favorite bits, presented here in three parts. Thing is, Palin doesn't appear in these clips. Yes, the irony's a tad obvious, but I'm old.
