A Bang and iMac is No More

by Evan on 2014/03/28

Well, actually a flash, a popping sounding and a burning smell.

I still have email and such if you want to get in touch (you can do it via the contact form on this blog too, if you prefer).

I may get some posts done (during this break I’ve been on I have been reading so it might be reviews).

Back soon – hopefully, Evan

December 22, 2013

One of the people I awarded in my last post (Marie at Coming Out of the Trees) has awarded me back.  These are the questions she asked me.   1. What was your last dream or nightmare about? The last one I only remember a fragment of.  It featured a librarian from a suburb I [...]

I’ve Been Given An Award . . .

December 7, 2013

. . . which is rather nice. What’s more it’s been given to me by two people, which is doubly nice. It has been given to me by Ruth (whose blog is about moving from dissociative identity disorder – which used to be called multiple personalities – to integration) and by Mulderfan (whose blog is [...]
