Question the Bathroom

Have you ever stopped to really think about bathrooms? Like, really questioned the prevailing standards of how bathrooms are designed? I’m of the belief that not too many people have done that, because if they had, there’d probably be more options on the market.  I mean, almost every bathroom I’ve come across in this part …

Illusion of Order

I’m sure there’s a science to office design, but I can’t for the life of me figure it out. As someone who’s worked across seven different offices in as many years (yeah, I realise that doesn’t look good on my resume), I’m better positioned than most to have gained some insights into this. And yet, …

Drain Intervention

Kids can cause havoc in the home. They break things, they make surfaces sticky and they just general lead to either mess or damage or at the worst of times, both. We love them though and we will one day miss wiping hand prints from the table and mopping tomato sauce from the floor. I …

Just Light Entertainment

Finally, a second season of Escape to the Country! The first season was a smash hit, but some stuffy network executives raised a big furor about laws being broken, and television standards being breached, and something about the network “descending into barbarism” and whatnot. I, for one, fail to see anything unethical about a family …

Desk Manager

I know I’m not supposed to swear, but what the HECK. I actually had fun filling out this big old stupid questionnaire, because it actually seemed like I was going to get a result that aligned with my interests. Then we get them back and suddenly it looks like I’m locked into a life of …

Conveyancing Plus FUN

They finally announced the contestants for the next season of The Great Australian Trade-Off, which for me is a huge relief because I’m not sure I can stomach another episode of Your Kitchen Sucks. Sappy music cues and artificial drama make me want to be violently ill, and I only watch it to fill the …

Fast and Spurious

Oh golly, they’re making another Fast and the Spurious movie. I seriously, perhaps foolishly, thought they were done after number nine. And then there was the spinoff with the two characters: Hobson’s, Sure, in which the two characters who hate each other agree to go to a lovely cafe in Stratford-upon-Avon called Hobson’s and talk …

No Techniques Inside!

So, um…anyone know a really good place for repairing glass? All my hopes and dreams just came true, but I also really need some very immediate glass repair. Melbourne would be preferable, and if they can’t do it in half an hour, I’ll also take recommendations for DIY repair kits. If they…actually exist.   Okay, so …

Hot Bag Scoops?

This case is testing my mental skills! I been hinting this mystery girl all around Melbourne, always arriving too late, like I’m under some journalistic curse, ! I bust in on the scene and there’s a bunch of bad guys nursing cracked ribs and handcuffed to posts for the police to pick up. I guess …

The Automotive Thrill

I know it’s rather crass and beneath my station, but I’m terribly curious as to what it’s like to drive a car. I’ve had a driver ever since I was born, and I’ve been periodically firing them since I was old enough to understand that I had the power to do that. Sometimes they take …
