Take The Plunge

Everyone’s been giving Wilkins a hard time this week, and it’s easy enough to see why. It’s one thing to whimsically contemplate living in a tree, and quite another to wake up one day and decide you’re going to sell your 5-bed pad in St Kilda and move into the first unclaimed tree that crosses …

Hard Wear Listening

I just got back from a trip to the hardware store. It was a strange one, to say the least. I thought I’d just walk in to buy some electrical supplies and return home. Simple enough, right? Wrong. At this particular hardware shop, a young woman was reading from a novel. She also had several …

The Write Paint

Right now I’m trying to work out what colour most suits a writer. That’s right, I’m a writer. A professional one. I just thought you should know that so that you can have high expectations for this post. I’m a writer, so obviously, this writing is going to be pretty good. Anyway, since I am …

Feet = Chaos

There’s nothing like the topic of feet to divide any given room. I’m not clear on why, precisely, they’re so divisive.

Better still, casually remove your …

That was one crazy trip to the dentist, I’ll tell you that much. I can’t say I’ve ever heard of a dentist doing their job while driving, but apparently it’s a thing, and it’s totally legal. I wasn’t booked in for a ‘driving appointment’, as they’re called, but I got one anyway. When I got …

Old Rust Bucket

It’s my nineteenth birthday today! I can’t believe I’ve been an adult for a whole year now. I’m so excited. It’s 3am and I’ve given up on sleep. I’ll just write things for my blog. Let’s hope it’s a better birthday than last year. What a letdown my eighteenth was, honestly. That was a debacle. …

Love Thy Neighbour… Not

What is the general protocol to be followed when the guy over the road puts a golf ball through your kitchen window? Yes, I’m aware that this is an unorthodox state of affairs – that’s precisely why I’m asking. Maybe the answer is obvious – I just march over there and inform him that he …

Dreamhouse Scheme

I can’t believe Athena hasn’t cottoned on to this ploy yet. It’s not even that underhand, honestly. I’m basically trying to provoke her into making a stylistic decision about our home by putting forward more and more outlandish interior design concepts, hoping that she’ll finally put her foot down and state an opinion on the …
