School Building Painting

Finally! After months of appealing to the school board, they’ve permitted me to paint the outside of the building for the year five and six students. Currently, it is a really ugly beige in the best of places. Some parts of the building have the paint literally peeling off the walls. It’s not good. This …

Feet o’ Geese

Vera Lynn is such a fusspot. You’d never heard the likes of it! Just this morning, she told Constance and I that she’d sent back a delivery of geese because she didn’t think their feet would be good enough for her famous goose foot soup. The way she goes on about that soup, you’d think …

The Workhorse

It isn’t easy to live up to the codes of ancient knighthood in this day and age, particularly residing in Melbourne. I took an oath to do just that many years ago, and have been living by it ever since. There are limitations, certainly. For example, subsection 14 of article 503 says that all knights …

Cat-pocalypse

I’ve been seeing my neighbour’s cat getting around in the cold and feeling a bit sorry for it, despite the fact that I know it has a cat flap and is out in the elements by choice. Then, I noticed that it kept disappearing into and old esky on the back porch, and not coming …

Manifesting at 110%

I can’t deny that I’m a little bit excited. I’ve just been granted the go-ahead on project office reboot, and the budget is much higher than I’d anticipated. That means I’m at liberty to go to town in creating the work environment I’ve always dreamed of. Whoop! I mean, obviously I can’t tailor it to …

Clued In… Not

I’ve just been informed – by my hairdresser, no less – that my parents are looking to move to Tasmania. Thanks for letting me in on that little piece of info, mum and dad! I mean, sure, they’d expressed an interest in going there, but I thought they were talking about a holiday, not a …

I Not Do Technology

I’m probably the youngest baby boomer in the world, at the age of 21. I say that because I just do NOT get technology. Never have. I try, really hard, and I’m not trying to make myself into some ‘accidental’ social media star by being really klutzy, but it’s true. I send emails to the …

Windows to Windows

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, but windows are the windows what’s outside the windows, and I don’t hear anyone going on about that. Maybe people need to stop parroting what they find on the latest page of their desk calculator and think about their words a little more carefully. Sorry…I …

Salsa Ruins Everything

Do you know what I, personally, think would be better than a course to manage stress? It would be going right over there to the HR department, pushing their speakers off the desks, stomping on them, tearing out the wires with my teeth and pronouncing the most dire warnings on their family if they even …

Pro Gamer, Incoming

If I’m to become the greatest e-sports champion the world has ever known, I’m going to need the right set-up. That, as you will clearly understand, is the only reason I’m not a professional already. I don’t have a pro gaming mouse because Mum and Dad won’t let me have one, and they won’t let …
