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 …

Skip The Horror

A relaxing drive in the countryside: what could possibly go wrong? You certainly won’t end up thoroughly lost, before winding up broken down on the side of the road with no phone reception or navigation signal to speak of. And this definitely won’t be taking place in an isolated hamlet with a slight whiff of …

Respect the Prophet

I would totally kill it if I was transported back to the Medieval era. For one thing, I did an elective on the Middle Ages, so I’d freak them out with my unearthly knowledge. Would probably get myself a cushy job as the castle soothsayer, saying all this cool stuff like “the Magna Carta, it’s …

Anyone for Cardigans?

Cardigans. Cardigans are the key. I don’t see what everyone is getting so worked up about. There’s such a sharp divide that I feel genuinely worried that people are going to start throwing things. Next time Kathy touches the air con controls, there’s going to be a bombardment of staplers, mark my words. And here’s …

Unblock Drains Without Chemicals

Baking soda and vinegar often don’t mix. Originally thought of as a cheap alternative cleaning method, it fell out of popularity as chemical household cleaners become the mainstream answer to keeping things sparkling. However, for drain unblocking, the results can be shockingly efficient. Not only does the combo eliminate a large number of drain problems, it does …

Air Con is Confusing…

I had this amazing idea to stay cool at the beach, and turns out it didn’t work. We have this air con unit in our house, the one I’m renting with my friend Chad, and his friend Chad, and it works pretty well. Like, it cools the air, like some sort of…air…conditioner. It conditions the …

Office For None

Yep, Sandra saw the office renovations happening over there, and it’s made things even MORE miserable for us. Hoorah! We’d been having a fairly decent time of things while Sandra was locked in her office working on a secret project, especially since her secretary Helena basically runs the place in her stead, all the time, …

Such Grand Thoughts

Today, I genuinely missed my train stop. This has been coming for a while, but the question of the day in the local newspaper to stimulate one’s thoughts have just gotten so wonderful and immersive that I was just thinking too hard. We got to Capital Station, and then the train started going back, and …

The Handbag Protector

Finally, someone has an idea on Lizard’s Lair that I can get on board with. I like the cringe, because it’s what I eat for breakfast every morning, but it’s nice to see someone have a good idea, finally. This girl came one with what looked like an ordinary red leather bag, which was odd …

Oversharing On Feet

My colleague, Mandy, won’t shut up about bunions. I get it, Mandy! Maybe if you didn’t wear those ridiculous heels all the time… sigh. I’ve tried that move before and it just eggs her on, if anything. She’s obsessed with high heels, which means she got a broader than average knowledge of common foot problems, …
