(Toi)let Down

This is classic Clara, blowing the office renovations budget on the bathrooms. Don’t get me wrong; I’m down with well-designed workplace amenities. But there’s only so far you can go with updating an office WC before you’re in the realm of pure self-indulgence, and I can’t help but feel that at least some of the …

Tinting, Then Peace?

Teacher seems rather cross, although unlike most such incidents, I think I know why this one is happening. She hates the idea of there being someone or something here in Melbourne who is acting non-human, but not attending Human Classes. She was quick to haul in the Atlantean fellow and the time traveller, but this …

Steel Is Coming!

Oh gosh, steel! I don’t know anything about it, but it sounds like it’s going to be the next big thing, which means I have to spread the word. I was watching a Me-Straw video and an advertisement popped up before it, stating that steel was going to change the world…more than it already has! …

I actually don’t have the slightest clue why people get so into movies. Look, I’m not emotional and I don’t get worked up over… well, anything, but especially not movies. And yet, DuMesque releases another flick and it’s party time for days. I guess he must’ve spun the wheel and decided to make a hammy …

Exciting Ocean Tales

I bought a plunger, and I was all ready to plunge the sink just like they do on the telly, but then I hit a snag: I don’t actually know how to use one. Here I was, all inspired by Escape to the Ocean, a spin-off from Escape to the Country. Instead of being chased …

Stranger In Town

The best thing about overland driving in Australia? That’s easy. By a long shot, it’s pulling up in an unfamiliar town, stepping out onto a new street – even if that’s just a servo, a takeaway joint and a diesel mechanic – and being the new guy in town. It never gets old. I particularly …
