Kero asleep

Still Sick :P

More sleep, some meds, and a hot shower have perked me up a bit, but I'm still not really fit for human consumption. I'll try to work via remote connection today.

Jeeves Very Good

Another Bit of Literary Champagne

'And you can't get away from it that, fundamentally, Jeeves's idea is sound. In a striking costume like Mephistopheles, I might quite easily pull off something pretty impressive. Colour does make a difference. Look at newts. During the courting season the male newt is brilliantly coloured. It helps him a lot.'

'But you aren't a male newt.'

'I wish I were. Do you know how a male newt proposes, Bertie? He just stands in front of the female newt vibrating his tail and bending his body in semicircle. I could do that on my head. No, you wouldn't find me grousing if I were a male newt.'

'But if you were a male newt, Madeline Bassett wouldn't look at you. Not with the eye of love, I mean.'

'She would, if she were a female newt.'

'But she isn't a female newt.'

'No, but suppose she was.'

'Well, if she was, you wouldn't be in love with her.'

'Yes I would, if I were a male newt.'

A slight throbbing about the temples told me that this discussion had reached saturation point.
