Sweet Truck

I’m kind of jealous of Tony’s sweet work vehicle. I don’t know what the go is with his employers, but they must be doing pretty well for a small construction company, because they’ve given Tony a brand new dual-cab ute with a custom half canopy to drive. Evidently, they don’t know about his love of …

The Last Straw

Well, there’s Sandrine on leave again. We should’ve seen this coming, because she was actually doing a lot of the same things as last time. The only difference is that she was burning herself out by acting nice, and actually being helpful and productive, so it’s a shame that she worked so hard. She got …

A Shattered Evening

So sweeping, so dramatic, so glossy and glassy! I hear that numbers of glass balustrade installation Melbourne wide have gone up 23% since last week, when we had the season finale of Week of Our Lives and all of its delights. Oh my actual gracious, that WAS a finale, in the truest sense of the …

Savvy Granny

My grandma is pretty tech savvy for an 87 year-old. Not only does she own a full suite of interconnected devices, she also knows how to use them. She even managed to troubleshoot an issue with my tablet that had me stumped a few months back, and she’s forever recommending new podcasts. She loves them …

Fish in a Wig

What do you call a fish in a wig? That’s not even a joke; it’s a legitimate question. Why do I ask it? Because my housemate, bless his cotton socks, is an apprentice wig-maker, and just can’t get enough of completing these bizarre briefs sent to him by an acquaintance from the internet. The acquaintance …

The Bandit Returns

I remember the good old days, when I wrestled in the Melbourne pro-league under the stage name ‘Bandito Carlito’. The announcers always had a good time saying my name, and so did the fans. Ahh, they’d chant my name all the time, but especially when I climbed up onto the cage bars to perform my …

The Western Lands?

The West isn’t quite as nasty as I was told, but I still vastly prefer the eastern suburbs. We just do things RIGHT here, you know? here, the dumpling restaurants are plenty, the postage services are swift, and the shopping centres flow like rain. From my scant research, they have practically no shopping centres, I …

Trimming the Hedges

I wonder how much transferable skill there is from gardening to hairdressing? I know that sounds threatening, but I’m genuinely asking. I spent so many years trimming hedges that i reckon that if you took the shears out of my hand and gave me some much, much smaller shears, and set me loose on a …

Curls All Gone

I swear people used to have curlier hair back in the day. At some point, people just stopped having curly hair in such great numbers, and the emo was born. Or…was the coming of the first emo such a momentous event that it forever shocked a great many people’s hair into being straight? All these …

Cue the heating

I hadn’t done anything nice for myself in a very long time. I was trying to save up money for the wedding and had been limiting my spending.  My hair was looking limp and lifeless, my tan was basically non-existent and my eyebrows were out of control. I did not feel like an attractive girl, …
