Away From Light

  I’m not one for investment properties, in general. I own a few, but that’s just stock-standard for people with as much wealth as us. They’re not my main business; I leave that side of things to the Clancy family, and their rivals, and they all have a nice set of squabbles over who gets what. …

The Home Empire

Well, if all the hot property is under the sea, I suppose I’d better get on that. No use running a housing empire if you’re missing out on a huge chunk of real estate, and unlike when our family arrived in Melbourne over a hundred years ago, this is brand new property. Best get an …

No Longer Superior

Alright, what’s this about the office in Melbourne being the best-looking? We are supposed to be the most stylish office in the country. We’re the Sydney office, and that means that we’re the best by default. And get this: if you go to the back window of the filing room, stand on top of one …

Oxygen Pitch

When I was really young, my brother told me that an evil goat ate my soul on the day that I was born, rendering me unable to dance or appreciate fine art. That’s a dumb lie, but I was a dumb kid, so I believed them. I used to sit on the side of school …

After I lost all my friends because I spent so much time debating with them, I obviously needed a new forum, for debating. I can’t help getting into debates; it’s in my blood, and my soul. Sometimes I just take a contrary position, just so I can test my debating skills, which is probably a …

Everything is Blocky

  So basically, it looks like the future will be people building everything out of blocks. Sort of like Lego, but even more heavy duty and not as trademarked. I gave a presentation tonight at the Futurist Club about how homes of the future are going to be far more fluid than they are at …

Taking My Time

For example, knowing the best garages for vehicle inspections near Ringwood. This is my job, I take it very seriously, and obviously I’m going to get someone I trust to check out my car, make sure everything is working as it should, and that I’m getting the most out of it. Efficiency is one of …

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 …

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 …
