Slight dilemma…

I must (scandalously) admit that I haven’t actually properly started re-editing Tacita yet. (I need to be in the right mood, and I’ve been away on holiday, etc etc etc; material for a different post that I won’t be writing.) What I have been doing, though, is thinking about Tacita, and when I think of something that […]

My most popular post of all time…?!

This is so weird. My most popular post EVER– viewed more times than the homepage– is ‘Fun Things to Do in The Sims 3‘. It is pretty much the most viewed post per day, and definitely the most viewed post per week, month, quarter, year, and of all time. Over 1600 views! I made that […]

Solving humankind’s problems?!

When I was a kid, I drifted along very blissfully, unaware of and indifferent to the world around me. I did not care about the news– in fact I loathed it– and I had no interest in contemplating anything more than my next snack. I didn’t know just how privileged a life I led. I […]
