Brief interim entry

Just wanted to write something in here. Been a while since I wrote anything, seem to spend most of my lj time either trawling through communities or commenting on other’s lives. Singapore is a strange place to be with the SARS virus. You really do get a sense of how anxious some people can be. […]

A most excellent illness

So, I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s – an autoimmune deficiency. That means that my body is slowly attacking it’s glands, starting with the thyroid gland.

Happy Christmas

So, it’s been a long long time since I’ve posted anything, let alone anything interesting. What’s been happening? Well, I’ve had an interesing exchange with foxmagic. He took offense at my letters to the Mormons and suggested that I wasn’t being fair and not listening to people. So, at his prompting, I posted to mormon […]
