Why I Made A Short Post…

No! Bad! Stahp! Sometimes I get some rather bizarre mail and this one is particularly no different. Avicenna thinks his readers (well, the advertisers he “writes” about, are dogs.

It’s not all Doom and Gloom

I have been really depressed over the past few days due to my parents threatening me with “ostracisation” if I don’t leave Tiga, and two things got me out. The support of Tiga for me and realising that people are amazing and that I should spend just as much time with amazing people and with …
