Unicorns and Welding

I just wish these unicorns would leave me alone, but they think I’m the coolest guy in the world. It all started when I saw an advertisement for a welding course at the local TAFE, which claimed that welding is the number one career that attracts women. It made the staggering promise that girls would …

Hard Wear Reading

I can’t believe I have my first live book signing and reading today. It’s going to be so exciting. I honestly never thought I’d get here, as a published author with a story to tell and sell. It always just seemed like a crazy dream I’d never be able to achieve. There’s just so much …

Air Con Broken Again

If you are reading this, it is too late. That phrase was far more dramatic before Drake used it as an album title. Still, if you really are reading this, then it actually is too late. I decided I would only leave this note if you didn’t make it back in time for the cooling …

Full Disclosure

Someone needs to come forward and explain what happened with the Buy Big scandal. As someone who was directly involved in its development, I feel a responsibility to be that person. I’m choosing to remain anonymous because I don’t feel that I was directly to blame for what happened, and I’d like to be able …

Flying Monkey Attack!

So I’ve been getting a lot of… constructive criticism after my last blog post, where I joked about flying monkeys attacking Melbourne. A few days later, what happens? That’s right. A flying monkey attack. But this is exactly what I meant about something being wrong with Melbourne! How a flying monkey attack happened right after …

Formal Ruff-air

That wedding planner, Ashleigh, is so rude to me. I understand that it’s Charlotte who’s getting married so she gets the most say in things, but I’m footing the bill, so shouldn’t I get to be heard as well? At the very least, I deserve the common courtesy of an explanation as to why Charlotte …

Super-Duper Man

Oh, what a battle that was! And the spoils, my goodness. This is why I went to the Superhero Training Academy (STA) in the first place! I’m loving my brand new car, courtesy of Dr Pistachio. This was one for the ages. It isn’t every day that you’re lucky enough to catch your arch-nemesis napping, …

Map Daddy

The ability to read maps is becoming something of a lost art. Personally, I have pretty limited skills in that area, but at least I have some idea of how it works, which is more than can be said for my niece and nephew. Aged 13 and 10, they’ve never actually witnessed anyone using a …

Grow Up Please

Why can’t the kids just get along? I mean, they’re approaching middle age, for crying out loud. Isn’t it time to put their differences aside and band together as a family? I understand that Bernice thinks Brett is full of… well, cow pats. And of course, Brett has always felt that Bernice got more attention …
