Survival of the Daddest

Family holidays are supposed to be a huge source of stress, right? Please tell me they are. If that’s not the case, then I’m clearly doing something wrong, and I simply can’t afford for that to be the case. I mean, when you’re racking up hundreds of dollars a day on kid-friendly B&Bs, cafe meals …

Dispute’s Heating Up

Day five: the war over the office climate control system rages on. Edith has wrested the remote from Dan and is smugly nursing it in her cubicle, making sure everyone knows about her special trump card, which is her arthritis. This would be a very real concern and one that I’m sure everyone would be …

Mystery Bundles

My mum is always buying those glossy home decor magazines, and I can never help flipping through them, despite my reservations. I’ve got to say, the way the homes are styled in them, you’d think they were inhabited by some kind of rarely seen, ground-dwelling bird – a kiwi, perhaps. For starters, they often feature …

Try Being Real

Dawn’s such a drama queen. She puts on this whole thing of being a sunbeam of love and light, while underhandedly clawing her way up the corporate ladder – albeit that of the spiritual self-help world. Then she’ll turn around and be freaking out about how much pressure she’s under and how bad it is …

Power, or Powerless?

As per usual, it was a confusing and misguided episode of Her-Bla, one that didn’t seem to know what message it wanted to convey. Back in season one, the messages may have been terrible, but at least they stuck to their guns, even if they were flying in the face of logic and common sense. …

Manifesting at 110%

My powers of manifestation are through the roof of late, if I do say so myself. Like, perhaps even to a fault. It’s starting to get a bit spooky, frankly, ever since that brand new Macbook turned up in hard rubbish. On the plus side, my home office is looking sharp, not to mention perfectly …

My Sunless Life

What we have here is a pickle. You see, I like to think that one day I’ll live in a house with many windows. This is mainly because right now, my place is the total opposite. I’m sharing a house with other students, and because I’m a cheapskate I went for the ‘interior room’. See, …

Kitchen Design, Sure

Saving is at the top, which is fair. Buying a home, already done. Now it’s telling me that Melbourne companies for kitchen renovation are some of the best in the world and I should be jumping on that trend. Somehow that ranks above ‘Caribbean holiday’, but I’ve been rich for like a week, so what …

Just Ask Me

Was kinda hoping all the air conditioning repair team in Sydney would get involved, and there would be a sort of cooling revolution. A revolution…with cooling. maybe we’d get better cooling in our office, because while it is currently fine, it doesn’t DO anything. People refuse to switch it on, so we have the opposite …
