Why Her?

Eurgh. Tracy is so infuriating! Every time the girls get together for a night on the town, the same thing happens. We all spend hours getting ourselves ready, obsessing over minute details like whether our nail tips are too matchy with each others’ earrings; meanwhile, Tracy rocks up at the last minute looking like she …

Dogs and Tools

I know that the season 2 finale of The Great Australian Trade-Off finished on something of a high, and it’s not like I HATE the specials, but…so many specials. Could they not dispense with all the special episodes and use that time to bring out the next season a little quicker?? Anyway, this week was …

The Last Move?

It will be a cold day in Darwin before I move house again. I’m serious: this is it. This is absolutely, 100% it.  I’ve done eight moves in seven years, and now that I’m (mostly) moved in, you’re not moving me from this spot for another five years at least. If I even consider moving …

That’s All, Folks

You know when a movie is just so amazingly huge that you walk out thinking that you have nothing to look forward to now? That’s how I feel now, having seen Revengers: Edamame. The credits rolled, there was an amazing mid-credits scene and an even MORE amazing post-credits scene. It’s not like they were going …

The Ultimate Mod

As much as those moon loonies scare me, they’re at least free thinkers. I mean, as much as you can be a free thinker when your thought patterns have been rigidly-controlled since the day you were born, and you’re incapable of independent thought. Okay, fine – maybe I chose my words poorly. I just mean …

The Stress Queen

Ugh, Dani is THE worst. I’m talking the worst of the worst. Mr Calvin asked this morning if anyone was looking forward to the sports carnival, and Dani had the gall to be excited about it, and I’m all like ugh, give it a rest, Dani. She goes around everywhere with this beaming smile like …

All Glass Everywhere

Ahh, glass. That great invention that lets you look through walls, which is a crazy achievement, if you really think about it. We had fewer windows in our home growing up than is usual, because Mother and Father really didn’t want the neighbours to know that I existed. I had no window in my cupboard, …

Seeing The Light

Since I was a kid, I’ve always held the view that houses should be entirely made of wood, and ideally resemble something in the realm of a rustic log cabin or a gingerbread house. Metal fittings have never appealed to me, nor has blocky, minimalist architecture. It’s only now beginning to dawn on me that …

Time To Binge

Finally! Neat-Flicks at last has listened to the cries of the masses, and they’re putting every single one of the 37 seasons of Doctor Poppins onto their streaming service. I guess I know what I’m doing with my weekend – never mind the fact that it’s only Monday. Oh well. I hear they’re reviving the …

Window Woes

Wow… these windows are really dirty. I feel like I’ve vaguely noticed this before, but not clocked the full extent of the situation. Now that I’ve seen it in all its glory, though, I can’t unsee it. Time for a chat with the management, I think. In the meantime, I’m going to assume they just …
