Friends Are Nice

Their latest joke was telling me that squeezing onion and lemon juice into my car’s oil tank would clear out the system so that I wouldn’t have to keep getting the oil changed. Well, one frantic search to a garage in Bentleigh for car servicing later, and don’t I feel silly! I just…well, I started …

Peanut Power

Earlier today, I got talking to a guy on the train who was carrying a Scottish terrier in his backpack. Initially, I just wanted to know the basics. Who is this good boy? Is he the most good boy ever? What’s his name? Why is he in a backpack? This led to the guy explaining …

Suddenly, Hair Expert

 In an attempt to maybe control my unruly hair a little, I started following the posts on a hair forum. I’ve always been bad at hair stuff, so I figured that i wasn’t about to become WORSE. That was on a day when it was ultra-humid, which is always death for my hair. Just, like…stringy …

Pests for Christmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Obviously. Sprouts to peel, presents to wrap, and termites to chase out from their foul little hidey-holes. “What’s that?” I hear you say. Not your typical Christmas fare, but the spinning wheel landed on us to host this year and I’m going to fulfil my end of …

Feature Wall Zone

I’ve already established my reputation as the undisputed queen of personalisation. Everything I own is mine, and there shall be no quarrelling about that fact because is YOUR maths textbook covered in stickers and choice lines from my favourite shows? Yeah, no. I didn’t think so. The great upside of this is that no one …

Too Much Festivity

Doreen not only has the decorations up, but she’s also covered the place in Christmas wallpaper. Is this just a tradition she does every year or something? We all walked into the office on Monday and found the place decked out like Santa’s palace, and I just can’t fathom why the boss would make such …

That’s No Curse…

OH MICE! Termites and spiders and mice, oh my! Things in Realsville have taken a turn for the worse after the hidden treasure of the hospital basement was found and taken without the proper ceremony. Now it seems like an ancient curse has fallen upon the town, except not really. I don’t know Week of …

Green Energy Great

I’ve only been in Australia for a few weeks, but already I like a lot of the ways they do things. I like the idea of anyone being able to go to ANY cafe. Back in my home country, there’s a system for cafes and other public eateries so complicated that you can grow up …

Bigger Better Glassier

I’m proud to be part of something so prestigious, but I think we can take this club further. We all came together because we love cats, and when people are bound by a common passion, then they can channel that passion into something great! That line always goes down really well with my audience when …

Even More Boats??

Yep, boats. Golly, Week of Our Lives sure does have a lot of stories about boats. But I went on the forums and asked if anyone had noticed this, and we ended up having a really great discussion that put things into perspective. The sea is a fascinating place, filled with mystery and intrigue, and …
