Mum Mods

I’m not sure if Cassandra really understands what she’s doing. It’s all well and good to work at bringing motherhood into the public sphere, and I unequivocally support that aspect of what she’s trying to do. What I’m not as sure about is the risk of creating a culture where new mothers are expected to …

Suddenly, Skill Gates

Okay, when we said they needed to patch the electrician class, we didn’t mean like that. At first it was super easy to become an electrician, but now it’s become stupendously difficult, and no one is picking the class anymore. If no one is picking the class, that means that there are fewer people to …

Surprise Plants

My friend Billy often comes over with random plants that he’s managed to cultivate in excess, and I proceed to make vague attempts at keeping them alive before accidentally killing them off. Billy then brings around more plants to replace them. Clearly, it’s a vicious cycle. The main problem is that Billy misguidedly believes me …

The Old Days

I remember back in the day, when calluses were a serious problem. that was when we walked to school in the snow, and we had to fend off ravenous wolves. Australia’s wolf population certainly has been curbed in recent years; I wonder what happened to all of them? Maybe the kangaroo population took care of …

Sage Conveyancing Advice

Sometimes it’s tough, having lived a full life and knowing basically everything. It gets worse when, to stave off retirement boredom, you take multiple computer courses and you become totally tech-savvy, keeping up with all the latest innovations. Every time my grandkids come around it’s always “Grandpa, my tablet browser keeps crashing!” or “Grandpa, the …

The Boating Queen

Oh come ON, Jess, you are the actual WORST! I can’t exactly say that she’s lying because the pics are all over Visage-Tome of her private cruise, but she’s acting like it’s her daddy’s private boat and it totally isn’t. She hasn’t said that it is, but it’s what she wants everyone to think, unless …

Cars: Number 1?

If I had to rank my vehicle preferences, number one would be helicopters. Obviously. They’re the most efficient way to travel, they can go in a straight line, you don’t have to sit through an in-flight safety video with air stewards telling you that you need to out your seat forward and some of them …

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. It’s like my brain automatically removes one thing out of everything I do and stores it to one side for…reasons. My Christmas jigsaw was a …

The Window Apprentice

My favourite cartoon has knocked it out of the park again, with a tacit depiction of an often-overlooked part of society. And by ‘tacit’, I do of course mean there’s a ton of magic and the main character is an ordinary guy surrounded by a bunch of illogically-attractive people, all vying for his attention, just …
