Dorothy Parker is unwell


Jeffrey Bernard was inclined to be unwell, the real Dorothy Parker was also inclined to be unwell, and now the ersatz Dorothy Parker has decided to be unwell.

She will be stepping outside the tent for a while. It could be a couple of weeks before she returns. It is not serious but it is irritating and vexatious. In the interim, irritating and vexatious Angry Anglicans, Pellists, Myrmidon Murdochians and such like will have to take care of themselves.

To the occasional readers who drop by, be good, be bad, be wicked, but whatever, enjoy.

Dorothy will return in due course.

    I will miss your daily blog - an intelligent and witty commentary on the loon ridden world in which we live.

    Regards,

    1. You've earned a respite, DP. But, be warned, having those piles clipped does remove an ever-present source of irritation and may have an adverse effect on the output. Still, if you were to hang onto them, you'd finish up looking like Nick Minchin or Roop.
