Hot Hot Hot
Phew! The bloody air-conditioning at work has busted. So we had 100 staff and 100 computers on our floor in the 30+ heat! Yuck!  Irene and I had to go out and buy 100 icy-poles as some kind of token gesture.  They are sending someone to fix it tomorrow morning. They better bloody-well fix it this time! Laura cracked-it with Building Services and said if they don't fix it tomorrow morning she's going to complain to the CEO!  It's really too hard for people to have to work in those conditions.

Apart from being hot it was also busy and crazy today.  And the system which splits the calls between us and our rural call centre wasn't working properly for a few hours which meant ALL the calls were coming to us! Argh! Anyway I managed to get most of my work done and we did OK in the end. I was feeling pretty cranky and headachy by the end of the day though. It was such a relief to get in my car and put the air conditioning on. Ahhhhhhhhhhh.

Nothing much else worth mentioning today really. Still reading the Pythons autobiography. It's a good un. Watched a thing about Marie Antoinette on SBS last night. Couldn't sleep well over night it was too hot and muggy.  Anyway I'm just blabbing on now. Time to go.

Hey AC. Aww, I feel so sorry for you, having to work in those hot temperate conditions! It's terrible, I think someone should definately complain! But those iceblocks sounded like a nice treat though!

And daftbird, what are those photos that you are talking about? The ones of John Cleese, where did you see them? Pleeaasee tell me!!!


P.S. I was the 400th person to view your journal by the way AC!

Hey Alex - thanks for being the 400th!  I've also got 30 entries now. I think that means I have all the journal badges. Woo hoo! 
I think the pictures of John Cleese that daftbird was referring to are the ones in the Pythons Autobiography which I'm reading.
There are lovely pictures of all the Python boys as kiddies. Very cute indeed!
Yeah the icy-poles were nice but really not enough to counter the head. Irene paid for them but work re-imbursed her.

Yeah,that's right what AC said,alexandra-the pics are in the autobiography.Who would ever have suspected that john cleese would have ended up having such a goofy looking face??It makes you laugh just to look at him-but somehow it makes him attractive as well,does that even make sense?

Ohhh, ok!!! I thought the pictures were from an internet site or something. Well at least I know now! Also, do you know if bookstores are still selling that "Pythons Autobiography", or did you get it from a second-hand bookstore, AC?? Because I'd be interested in reading it.

alexandra-i'm pretty sure i got the book around last christmas or something like that-i mean the end of 2004-they might still be around though-or they could order one for you from the bookshop.i think i paid something like $50.00 to $55.00 for it from target because at the time it was the cheapest i could find.It is called "the pythons autobiography by the pythons".It's worth the money because it's a really big book,and is around 350 pages long.There are heaps of good pictures in there to enjoy-along with the one of baby john cleese-he looks so cute you wish he was your baby .

Oh ok! I'll probably try and find the book for a bit cheaper than $50 though.. Aww, I wanna see the cute baby pic of John Cleese!! My brother is a big fan of Monty Pythin too, so it would be good getting the book!

I just finished working in a bookstore 'round xmas, and believe you can only get the Python autobiography in paperback which doesn't have nearly as many photos (and is not nearly as expensive). The hardcover copies seemed to have finished their run about 10 months ago, so you may be able to find them in some bookstores that don't do much business (as it's quite a popular book). The only people who would be letting go of their hardcover copies would be people who got it as a present and thought "I don't like Monty Python that much" because it's pretty much the MP tomb. You could probably look on ebay, though wouldn't recommend getting it from overseas as it is rather heavy, meaning postage would cost a lot more than the book.

Yeah I still see the big hardback version in some book shops around the place. I think I've seen it for as low as $40.
But we have the paperback version. It still has pics but not so many and not so big.  It was only about $25.  The paperback version is fairly new so you should be able to find it in most bookshops. I even saw it in K-Mart the other day. The spine was all bent from people reading it in the store though.

i think i'm going mad-i think i have the year mixed up-it must have been the end of 2003-or am i dreaming??The time is going by too fast to keep up.Do you fellas know of a good book that has some of their sketches in it,that sort of thing?e.g i'd love to read a script of one of john and michael's "arguments" to amuse self by reading it in bed on a rainy night such as tonight.Do have any others to recommend ,AC?

Twas 2003 that it was released. Scary stuff.

The best book/books to get to read the scripts are the Complete Unexpurgated Scripts of Monty Python's Flying Circus. There are two separate books, or you can get the book with both volumes in it. Generally you can find them really cheap on ebay. I found my copy in a second-hand bookstore, and see them around quite often, so they're not hard to get hold of.

Trent has a book of Python sketches. Not sure what it's called though. It might be the one Mazzanda mentioned. Unfortunately we have packed all the books already so I can't check!
