Good Morning Modellian, Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing Day (belatedly). So I think they have computers in Canada, eh? It’s not called the World Wide Web for nothing. Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers Mate, Drunk Auntie

Sugarplums and Whatnot

Well Diabetes Modellitus, That is really depressing. I’m sorry for suggesting a mediocre book. I hope you learned your lesson to never listen to me ever particularly when it comes to such things as literature and art and culture. Blame the left brain in me (I’m still on that–I know it’s been three weeks). But […]
