Pet Food for Thought

Waiting rooms are so boring. At the age of 35, you’d think I’d have learned by now to bring my own reading material when I go to the clinic, but no. So this afternoon I found myself, once again, sifting through the selection of old volumes of Financiers Weekly and TV Stuff, desperately seeking something …

Present is Fine

You know the best way to see the future? Just…look at a baby. Preferably one you care about. Seriously, it’s flipping weird and terrifying. Once you get over how cute they are, you start thinking about what they’re going to be like as they grow up, and then how the world will be, and of …

In Roman Times

Aqueducts are really nice and all, but I think I’d prefer the plumbing system in 2018 Melbourne. The museum just received enough ancient Roman artefacts for an entire exhibit, and I had the pleasure of designing the display. I love history and all, but one of my favourite things about it is that it IS …

Quantifying Power

You know what would be cool? If popularity could be measured, and harnessed for the good of all. You know those positive emotions brought forth when you hear someone spit some fire lyrics, or when they pull off the perfect dab, or when they throw some spicy shade at your ex. You know, that sort …

Sun Electricity

I tried generating my own electricity for one week. This was part of a very interesting challenge set by my guru, who was trying to teach us all a lesson about relying on modern technology, and why it’s not always bad. Still, they did it in such a sneaky way. First we made a big …

Aluminium Okay

Get it together, Angela. You technically haven’t done anything wrong. Well, you have, but it’s not your fault. Not totally your fault. Sort of your fault, and sort of the fault of thousands of years of cultural norms. I haven’t extensively researched the local culture, and thus I was totally unaware that aluminium is offensive …

Lunar Tire Repairs

So…I’ve been looking up pictures of moon rovers, and I don’t think my ability to change tires is going to be very helpful. All this time I’ve used this as the one solid reason that I should be part of the colonisation team. My tire repair skills are immense. They are vital to the mission. …

What a Wonderful Country

The meat in this country…oh, the meat is truly wonderful. Not that Romanian meat is anything so terrible, but it’s not known as a place to get a juicy steak, or a delicious lamb burger, or even just some nice sausages. So close to Germany, and the sausage quality is just average. Actually, if I’m …

Virtual Hair Tycoon Here

People are really serious about their avatars in the video game, ‘Over-Botch’. It makes my in game job all the more important. I’m just a general stylist, but that way people can come to me for all sorts of things- hair, clothing, different facial features, etc.- so I don’t think I’ll be running out of …

Lay Off the Office

I can’t really recommend having a beard. Stubble is fine, and hyper-stubble can be okay (that’s like when people don’t actually have a beard, but it’s not quite stubble either). But a full beard? Not so good. That’s my life experience, and I’m recommending what’s good for me. What’s good for me, however, might not …
