  • It’s the Chairwoman-about-to go-into-hospital weekend open thread!

    by Katy

    Yes, it’s true. After a really spectacularly long period of sitting in a chair waiting for treatment, the Chairwoman is finally to be admitted to hospital to start said treatment, which will hopefully mean that she comes out less of a Chairwoman and more of a generally-moving-around-Woman. It is not yet clear what sort of access she is likely to have to the interwebs, so please send her your best wishes in this thread. You can also put funny/interesting/non political stuff in here. Do not wreck it with serious stuff. For once, frankly, if I don’t like it I’ll delete it. Yes I will.

    The Chairwoman goes into hospital on Monday. Get commenting…

      I shall cross everything for the soon to be mobile woman.

      In the meantime let’s hear a round of applause for the clouds

    2. douglas clark — on 21st July, 2007 at 1:33 am  


      That is the best news I’ve heard today!

      Thank G-d somethings’ happening at last. It has been a ridiculously long wait.

      Send her my regards.

      Chairwoman as in Wheel Chair? I had no idea!!

    5. Sunny — on 21st July, 2007 at 2:24 am  

      Hope you get better soon Chairwoman!

      You know, I never really thought of you as a woman in a chair, more along the lines of a Chairwoman of a company (or a house?).

    6. Nodn — on 21st July, 2007 at 3:04 am  

      same here :)

    7. sahil — on 21st July, 2007 at 8:21 am

    8. El Cid — on 21st July, 2007 at 9:29 am  

      bonne chance

    9. Random Guy — on 21st July, 2007 at 9:30 am  

      Chairwoman, all the best and my thoughts and prayers will be with you.

    10. Jai — on 21st July, 2007 at 11:10 am  

      Chairwoman Auntie,

      All the very best for your impending stay in hospital, and I hope your treatment is as successful and hassle-free as possible. God bless.

    11. The Dude — on 21st July, 2007 at 11:57 am  

      Chicken soup, my dear……Plenty of hot chicken soup (with dumplings). Jah be with you.

      The Dude

      Mucha mierda

    13. sid — on 21st July, 2007 at 12:15 pm  

      You’ve always been more Chairwoman than ChairWoman.
      You’ll be back on your feet soon, insha’llah!

      gratuitous classic 80s sitcom theme tune

    14. Don — on 21st July, 2007 at 12:52 pm  

      All the best. Looking forward to your return.

    15. SajiniW — on 21st July, 2007 at 2:58 pm  

      Best wishes for a speedy recovery!


    16. Rumbold — on 21st July, 2007 at 2:59 pm  

      Good luck Chairwoman. And Katy.

    17. Anas — on 21st July, 2007 at 3:27 pm  

      All the best Chairwoman. Hope your treatment goes well and you can ditch the name and just call yourself Woman :) PP isn’t the same and won’t be the same without you.

    18. justforfun — on 21st July, 2007 at 4:19 pm  

      Best of health Chairwoman.

      Let us know what the food was like.

      As a bonus when recovering - try and snare yourself a consultant, or at least find a husband for your daughter.


    19. Katy — on 21st July, 2007 at 5:00 pm  

      My mother and I have already agreed that I have dibs on all consultants under 45.

    20. sabinaahmed — on 21st July, 2007 at 7:30 pm  


      Am nor clever nor technical enough to put clever links for you to see, but then you have all these lovely people to do that for you.All I can do is wish you all the best for your stay in the hospital.
      As we say may God go with you , or “Khuda Hafiz”.
      Take care.

    21. — on 21st July, 2007 at 10:43 pm  


      good luck, my prescription is an MP3 player with plenty of your own good music, credits for the phone/TV, lots of wet hand wipes for your visitors (MRSA is still an issue, sorry to appear negative but you can’t take too much care with it), oh and chemical ice packs, those soft (not from Boots) good quality ones for any aches, they better than taking tablets

      Cheers, MB :)

    22. Zak — on 22nd July, 2007 at 1:55 am  

      Good luck chairwoman

      p.s Transformers rocks!!!

    23. bikhair aka taqiyyah — on 22nd July, 2007 at 3:23 am  


      If I were you I would go for a D cup. In all seriousness, take care and make a swift recovery.

    24. sonia — on 22nd July, 2007 at 9:19 pm  

      thanks for posting this katy - all the best to Chairwoman and fingers crossed and i hope she’s out and about soon and that everything goes smoothly,



    25. Chairwoman — on 22nd July, 2007 at 9:23 pm  

      Thanks to everyone for their good wishes.

      I actually don’t know what to say, but I will miss you all quite dreadfully.

      5 to 8 weeks of NHS hospitality await me :-)

      5 to 8 weeks of NHS hospitality await me

      Best wishes.

    27. The Dude — on 22nd July, 2007 at 10:53 pm  

      Not if some good home brewed chicken soup has anything to do with it (Back a Yard special). I’ve finally made peace with your daughter and hand on my heart I hope I can make peace with you. So don’t go letting me down, girl. You get better now!

    28. Refresh — on 22nd July, 2007 at 11:11 pm

      I’m a bit gaga from the usual business

    32. sofia — on 24th July, 2007 at 9:58 am
