If only he had heeded his own advice, I could have agreed with him. Eh?

I like this quote.

(I miss fellow people on this site. I got swine flu. Sick for week and the damn virus tricked vertigo. I am NOT a happy camper.) Enjoy your life!

Wodehouse's humorous quotation is an example of a type of paradox in which contradiction arises from self reference. For a list of such paradoxes see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Paradoxes

To Christine: "Get well soon!" Take revenge with a ham sandwich.

Ryebald as ever, H.

Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder.

Sorry Christine, we really do appreciate the gravity ( couldn't resist ) of your situation. Be well soon.

( A hangover AND vertigo would reeeeealy suck !)

From what I've gathered about Christine I think your punny comments would actually have cheered her up enormously, guys.

Christine:- damn bad luck. All the best - and tons of good thoughts to you.
