Dusty Moon

Everyone has just jumped to the frankly massive conclusion that we’re going to be needing oxygen on the moon. Oh, they go on and on about it like it’s the most important thing. Oxygen this, oxygen that, “oh, we need to breathe, blah, blah!” “Someone give me the plans for the bio-dome, we need to …

Dressing Down

There’s a lot of talk going around lately on the topic of working from home: the upsides, the drawbacks, and the mere curiosities. For me, there’s one thing that stands out, and that’s how all this affects one’s dress sense. It’s not just a matter of tracksuit pants on the bottom, smart casual shirt on …

Cars and Taxes

There’s a man in a black suit outside. He’s been standing there all day, occasionally peeking through the windows. He doesn’t flinch when I make eye contact with him. Doesn’t seem bothered by the loud music I’m playing. He knows I’m home, and yet he doesn’t knock on the door. It’s thirty-five degrees and yet …

The Long and Winding Road…

However, I can share some juicy details about all the success we’re having. Some clever person- I think it was Cathy- suggested that, since we’re crafting the perfect neighbourhood, we should also create a vastly new road system, one that fits the principles of our green…principles. That sounded good to everyone, so we made Cathy …

Hammock It Up

Of all the things in the world I could be reclining in at any given time, a hammock and a bathtub top my list of preferred options. So you can imagine how chuffed I was when I recently discovered that ‘hammock tubs’ are a thing.  Seriously, they are. They might not be a common sight, …

Get It Together

My brother Gareth needs to start taking better care of his health. He’s always got something awry, and invariably has an appoint at some specialist clinic or another. If it’s not a rare ear infection, it’s a newly acquired allergy, an unusual sprain or a toenail fungus. Some might say he’s unlucky, but personally I …

Auto Trifecta

Do firsts always come in threes? I recently experienced my first ever run-in between my car a stationary object. The lamp post got off just fine, and the car didn’t fare that badly either, although a chunk of paint got scraped off the back bumper. I was kind of horrified because I figured it would …

Drain Dance

My sister’s got this weird thing with her house at the moment. Actually, it’s more of a weird thing with her, in relation to the house. Basically, she’s begun to fancy herself as a ‘house whisper’ of sorts. She believes that she’s repaired a number of maintenance issues through the power of soothing vocal tones …

My Secret Automobile

But it gets me around, especially when I feel the call of inspiration and I must rush out to greet it. Like the other day when I felt a subtle whisper: go to the park, there’s some totally cool song vibes. There were some cool song vibes. But after that, I had to drive all …

Never Drive-In

It’s too late for me, because I went to one last night and it was a horrible experience, but take it from me that they aren’t worth the effort. I think I was inspired by a movie that I watched in my own home and thus rather enjoyed, Peddle Without a Clause, that movie about …
