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 …

More Cup Space

You’d think with there being so many cars in the world, customization would be more of a big deal. Like, you can get custom anything else, but when it comes to a vehicle? Please pay us two-squillion dollars, and then we might be able to talk. All I really want is an extra cup holder …

The Future of Power

So, tonight at the Futurist Club was asked the important question of ‘will we still need electricity when the people from far beyond Alpha Centauri come to take over the world and forcefully convert it into a utopia?’ Personally, I’m still skeptical if there ARE going to be any invaders, but if it actually happens, …

Quiet Sleep, Finally

Lizard’s Lair knocks it out of the park again, with another sizzling episode. This time they had a special guest star, a top researcher at Lawrence Corp, so supposedly they only put forward the very best ideas. That’s the theory, but I think they actually suggested the most outlandish and had the guest star tear …

Colder, Even Colder!

So, we need to get some air conditioning. Shouldn’t be a problem, because the only time we’ll ever turn it on is for guests. I suppose I’ll call on some contacts, see if there’s a good company for air conditioning repair in Brighton. There’s still so much of the summer left, and there will be …

Notice Me

I even joined an office, because I heard they were mundane places with little physical activity, and thus are the perfect stage for phantasmagorical displays. They’ve been working on updating the office style since I started. Office designs, in Melbourne you say? Well, what happens when I redesign the entire office overnight, to make it …

Being a Landlubber

Alright, I don’t actually know what I’m doing. I bet I’m now one of those people, the ones that all the other, experienced seafaring folks look down upon, all because I’m here trying not to immediately steer right into the docks when I take off. Meanwhile, they’re basically lying back and steering the boat with …

Complexities of Moving

So, first you have to tell the ruling bodies that you’d like to move to a place. You then have to pay for the place, and it’s very expensive even in the currency of the land, and then you have to go through other things. We’ve been advised that we need to find a conveyancer …

The Man-Bag Cometh

Slouch bags are like the happy medium anyway, because they’re much bigger and they hold more than your average, petite handbag. I’m not saying I’m going to get a bright red leather bag and cover it in flowery stickers and fill it with mascara and used tissues. This is still going to be a bag, …
