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 …

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 …

Physio Magic

Ever since I broke my toe paddle-boarding last summer, I’ve been waiting for my foot to go back to normal. It’s not a massive issue – just enough of a niggling pain to keep me on my toes about it (or off them, as it were). Anyway, I finally went and saw a physio about …

The Future of Offices IS Robotic!

I think we all know that the future of office design is robots.

Our main goal at the moment is to integrate robots into office design and related spheres, so …

Local Businesses, Spreading the Word

It’s about time we got some advertising going. Sounds strange to say it, because you never see ads on trucks or whatever saying ‘Play Basketball Today!’.

Kitchen Stuff, Not So Bad

I’ve had a great time these last few nights reading book under the covers, much later than I usually would. There’s a bit of an art to making sure that all my brothers are asleep before I bust out the torch and start reading, but I think I’ve gotten it down. Ma noticed that I …

Smooth walking on gel

Since I’ve never really been sporty, I obviously haven’t had too much trouble with sports injuries. The most physical activity I get done in a day is walking my dogs, Digger and Andy. Admittedly, I take them for two decent walks every day, so that probably adds up. Anyway, I’ve somehow managed to strain a …

The gift made of aluminium

I have to give a gift to my study partner, because apparently society has devolved to the point where we must validate every interaction with a gift. Not that I’m complaining; I get a gift too. I gave David a list of appropriate and within-budget items that he can buy for me. I have but …

The Bathroom Kid

So I was babysitting this 8 year-old yesterday. Let’s call him Jeffrey. Seeing as we hadn’t met before, I decided to ask him some questions to try and find out about his interests or potential areas of common ground. We got to talking about what he wants to be when he grows up. He told …
