Lighting, All Over

You know, back in the early days of Wizard Wars – I’m talking when it was first released – throwing lightning was the cool thing to do. Lightning is surprisingly inefficient method of dealing damage, but the idiot prince character that was a popular avatar at the time squealed and clapped his hands whenever anyone …

Dangerous Shampoo, Seriously

Sometimes, you just have to go. And when your friend calls you up and says that they have tickets for the supposedly-sold out Honey Tiger concert, you HAVE to go. They weren’t front row, but close enough that I swear Honey Tiger made eye contact with me, like…twice. Maybe even MORE than twice, squee! So …

Skyfaring

Okay, let’s say that some sort of magnetic technology has been invented in the near future, and things can now float with ease. We have maglev trains, so I don’t think it’s too far-fetched. Suddenly, wow, look, even the anchor winch specialists in Melbourne are doing great, because now everyone wants to fly through the …

Kitchens Take Effort

But tonight on Lizard’s Lair, this guy purported to come up with something that just does NOT sound right: ‘Instant remodels’. Yeah, instant kitchen remodels are a thing now, or so we were led to believe. Spoiler alert: they’re not real. There was a big promo where they made it seem like the best idea …

Merry Eco-Christmas

I’m seriously hoping we don’t have a repeat of last year’s…’eco-Christmas’. This was during the period in which Sandra was clearly losing her marbles, but we were all too afraid to say anything, so we just let it sit. Don’t let it sit, kids…don’t make our mistakes. Anyway, Sandra announced that our Christmas gift to …

Making Auto Friends

If there’s one thing humans love, it’s cars. I knew that even before I started taking these classes, but I certainly didn’t know how to talk to them about it. Mostly I just hung around the office, smiling at times when I thought they said something positive, and then stopping because I’m convinced that one …

Amazonian Office

There’s nothing like being in an office! Okay, I realise that’s kind of a weird thing to say, so let me back up. I’ve just spent the past year and a half living out of a backpack, moving through a variety of accommodations across the South and Central Americas. I’ve lived in tree houses on …

Chat Room

Veronica just stuck her head over the partition again to tell me about her nephew’s latest exploits on the cricket pitch. How does she not realise that I have zero interest in that subject? I mean, I don’t mind hearing about that kind of thing from time to time, but she acts like I’m super …

The Car Trip

I don’t really go on business trips…ever. Having kids will do that to your ability to travel, especially if they’re really young. But I’d heard there was this really great market up in Bendigo, and I just casually mentioned to my manager that I wished I could go sometime. She said that she can look …

Home Office Hustle

What are your top three essential ingredients for a great workspace? I realise that ‘great workspace’ has a pretty buzzword-y feel to it, and you’d be forgiven if you were sitting there silently mocking me right now. I hope you’re not, though, because I am genuinely seeking help in this arena. I’m putting together a …
