No Dome Homes

Truly weird how no one talks about the new underwater society anymore. Well, except for my Great Aunt Ruth, who has a massive gossip circle and seems convinced that we’ll all have our own little glass domes by Christmas. In fact, I’m pretty sure that’s what the whole family are getting for Christmas: vouchers for …

The Mirror Maiden

I’m calling it: Mirror Knight Equestria Pony Princess is going to be THE anime of 2019. I was all into Demon Spayer, which had a great deal of promise depicting a guy using his veterinarian mastery to make it so people’s pet demons didn’t run around the neighbourhood having little demon litters, but MKEPP is …

Career Change Time

You know, sometimes I dig a big old hole in which to sleep and I settle down to have a think. Technically I don’t really sleep, on account of me being a spooky skeleton. I don’t have the usual fatigue or melatonin or any of that, and I actually can’t even close my eyes because …

70s Mania

I’m starting to think that Marion might be just a little too obsessed with the 70s for her own good. Don’t get me wrong – I understand that it’s her ‘thing’, and I’m not trying to take that away from her. I’m perfectly happy for her to go retro til the cows come home in …

Our Traffic Empires

  I’ve always thought we’d be great as a family of traffic managers, mostly because we, as a family, are good at everything. That’s right…we’ve got the looks, we’ve got the touch, we’ve got the talent, and the Bakers always work together as a flawless team. One thing Melbourne needs more of is people who …

The Transfer Queen

Colleen is just the absolute, complete and total worst. One day she will ascend the slopes of Mount Unbearable, take her place on the Throne of No-Social-Skills, and be crowned the Worst Ever, Queen of All Living People Who Make You Want to Knock Their Teeth Out. If Colleen was in an office, she would …

Painfully Stylish

My sister has this thing of expecting me to always notice her latest pedicure. Don’t ask me why she thinks I’d be interested in this, or how I’m supposed to notice – they all look the same to me. Maybe the shade of nail polish is a tad more plum-hued than last week’s mauve, but …

This Old Thing?

“Oh, this old thing?” Nope, that’s not right. “Oh…this old thing?” Yeah, that’s much worse. Makes it sound like I pulled the bag out of a dusty loft and I don’t think much of it, whereas the vibe I’m going for is that I pulled the bag out of a dusty loft and I’m all …

Seals in Orthoheels

Ocean. It’s full of drama, I guess, but I clearly remember the very first time I ever watched Week of Our Lives. I was trying to feed the baby as a new mum, not doing a good job of it, and I was lucky enough to tune in during the legendary storyline in which Jacinta …

A Simpler Sim

I miss platform games. At some point the world of gaming decided that things would be better in 3D, so the platformer almost entirely died out and now we…have exactly the same amount of fun, except it looks nicer and you can move around in an extra dimension. I’ve always said that video game ‘Over-Botch’ …
