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 …

Power Play

It’s funny seeing Billy trying to fit into the corporate world. On one hand, he’s a complete natural at it, with inbuilt assertiveness and a nose for when he’s being stitched up. On the other hand, he’s like a fish out of water when it comes to some of the more traditional (shall we say) …

The Prime Victory

OH. MY. VROOM-NESS. I feel like we’ve been here before, but Week of Our Lives seems to have so many episodes centered around cars that I find it hard to keep up with all of them. There are literally thousands of episodes now, so I can’t be expected to remember all those summaries! That’s what …

Alas, No Magic!

Alright, I finally give up on my quest! I’ve searched, I have searched, and I’ve double searched, but it seems like Melbourne doesn’t have a single magic shop. I told myself that this realm couldn’t possibly be devoid of the mystic arts, but three visits to novelty joke shops later and I’m starting to see …
