Javelin through windows

I know Javelin throwing isn’t the most common sport in the world. I didn’t care that it wasn’t popular, I was good at it and I enjoyed the sport. I was completely in love with my new found favourite activity and no one could tell me otherwise. My parents had tried to convince me to …

View to a Shill

Ugh, I hate it when I’m trying to shill one thing, and then I get a sudden calling to shill something else that’s the complete opposite. I was hosting a Heel Extension party, because I’m a consultant for Hellion Heels for Honeys. They do heel extensions (‘for the girl who needs to be taller for …

Drilling to Success

Drills, drills all day, every single day. They’re totally necessary, and I’m kept going by the heat of my inner flame, but wow, SO many drills. Madame Broom doesn’t let just anyone into her prestigious academy, you know. You have to possess incredible innate talent, and the ability to work so hard your arms and …

Gotta Get Tinted!

Personally I am ALL about buying things when people tell me to buy them. This is why, after driving past that billboard on the way to work all of once, I’m ready to buy that thing. I know I have to drive forty minutes to work and the billboard is right at the end, but …

Parental Presh

Buying property is a contentious subject these days, isn’t it? Back in the day, people bought a house and felt good about it, and it was chill. At least, I assume that was the case… I guess I wouldn’t really know Point is, nowadays, people look at you with suspicion if you profess to being …

Gardens of the Galaxy

When you think about, plants are from outer space. So are we, I guess, but let’s just focus on plants for a minute. Looking at them from this perspective really explains a lot. From their creeping tendrils to their overwhelming green-ness, plants bear an uncanny resemblance to the ‘little green men’ of our intergalactic imaginings.  …

The Fleet Departs

I, for one, feel safer around the docks now. The Fleet had been hanging around the Melbourne bay for weeks, which I guess they can do, legally, but it made everyone nervous. They do not like us, apparently because we live on the land and that makes us inferior. When I heard that some of …

Glazier By Day…

It’s about time this city got itself some mysterious vigilantes. For years I’ve been restricted to just reading comics and watching poor-quality superhero television to sate my urge, but now Melbourne has a real vigilante urban legend of its very own. Right on! Next step: find this person and become their sidekick. I just saw …

Hospitals = Health?

Sometimes I think hospitals seem like the worst possible place to receive healthcare services. There, I said it. To be clear, I don’t have too many ideas on how to make them better environments for healing, short of raising taxes. But that doesn’t mean I can’t offer a critique, misguided thought it may potentially be. …

Kitchen Metaphors

Samantha really doesn’t ever shut up about home decorating. When Amanda said that, I sort of dismissed it, but it’s actually true. I always thought she had more interest in the topic than your average Joe, but I hadn’t clocked the full extent of it. It’s virtually all she talks about, and she does so …
