The Worst Holiday

https://i0.wp.com/rayoonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/car.jpg?fit=852%2C480 Some of my minions think that I’ve been pretty stressed out lately. I’d never admit it to them, but it’s true. The initiative to ruin the lives of humans by making it so difficult to get their welfare payments that they’d prefer to just live on the street really took it out of me. …

Ventilate Wildly

I’m just about at my wits’ end with this laundry, which has the dimensions of a shoebox and is about as inviting as an old boot. You wouldn’t think a laundry could be this much of an issue, would you? After all, it’s just a laundry – it’s not like I’m hanging out there recreationally …

Lulabelle, I Think

Do they seriously have to premiere all the good shows at the same time? Like, what kind of diabolical studio executive decided that this would be a good idea? Ugh, terrible. You’ve got Week of Our Lives on one channel at 7:30, Lizard’s Lair is ALSO on at 7:30, and Echolocation, Echolocation, Echolocation, Echolocation is …

Deep House

House sitting: yep or nope? It’s a bit late for me to be asking, given that I’ve already signed up for a long-term gig, but it’s occurred to me that this might be just a tad more involved than it’s cracked up to be. I was thinking of it mainly in terms of free accommodation, …

Knife-ly Done

I’m so excited about my new knife block. I’ve just put in an order with a local artisanal blacksmith, who I’m told was apprenticed to master blade makers in Japan and Switzerland. The handles of his knives and the block itself are hand-crafted by the guy’s wife, an award-winning woodworker. It’s costing me a pretty …

Driving, Not Once

There was this report on Six Twee Minutes about a guy who was driving his car, he was texting on his phone, this made him spill his coffee, he drove right into a cow that had wandered out of an unlocked gate, and I have to say that I’m in agreement with the guest expert: …

The Old Mechanics

With the benefit of hindsight, I’m not entirely sure I had the nicest childhood. Not that I’m being a negative Nancy or anything…I count my blessings where they fall. My parents gave me a roof over my head (the roof of the cupboard under the stairs), they gave me a ton of different skills in …

Just Plain Anxious

Dooby-School used to be my favourite show. And what was not to love? A small-yet-brave and virtuous dog goes around staging mysteries so that owners of amusement parks can raise the funds to open their businesses again. I like a show with a good happy ending, which I guess is why I keep watching children’s …

Just Bow Rails

If they’re bringing back the show about hair, I want to have more of ‘Real Steel’. It only lasted a year, but it managed to annihilate my insomnia, and now that my insomnia is back…well, you get it. It was still a good show though. Basically, it was all about the bow rail industry, and …
