Bendigo’s Tourism Boost

Spoiler alert. I never would’ve suspected that Jamilla was in on the plot to rob Kaylene of her father’s inheritance by posing as a penguin saleswoman, or that she was put up to the task by Ulysses, who secretly wanted to simply get down into the treasure vault of Kaylene’s ancestors to steal the Mask …

Where Lost Things Go

There’s always one piece left over. ALWAYS. You think you’re done, I always think I’m done, but I’ve forgotten something, every single time. It’s become a cliche at this point.

The best part of reality TV is that you learn something about the world around you. It might not be a documentary, strictly speaking, but it truly does teach life lessons. Like how in the latest episode of Lizard Lair I learned that a toaster than can sing one of seventy fun showtunes and act …

Educational Wallpaper

Elsa has been hassling me again about wanting to make over her room. I’ve had my reservations about it because she’s so prone to changing her mind, and I don’t want to shell out a bunch of cash for something she’s not going to want to live with in six months. But she’s been going …

Hair Monster

Aargh! There’s hair everywhere! I’ve just moved in with my girlfriend and her dog, and it’s taking a bit of adjusting to. The Labrador hair I was ready for, but the human hair in the plughole has been a… surprise. It’s partly because I’ve always had very short hair, but I’m starting to suspect that …
