Car-mic Retribution

While I don’t necessarily buy into the concept of karma, I can’t help but feel I’ve accumulated some bad debts in the vehicular department. I just can’t seem to get a break when it comes to owning a car, no matter how meticulously I take care of the details. It’s like I’m somehow destined to …

Barefoot and Fancy Free

The moment exams are over, I’m off. I can’t believe I’ve managed to get through thirteen years of school, and just two more essays stand between me and doing whatever I want 24/7, for the rest of my life. I can smell the exhilarating air of freedom already! The first thing I’m going to do …

Clickbait Trauma

I think that anything can be a viral hit. It’s a random process, lightning that you can’t trap in a bottle. It rains down and strikes one random video every now and then, and suddenly one grouchy cat is making millions. And then you go to Me-Straw, there’s a new video from Tabby Crawshaw, and …

Fragrant Bathtime

Summer is here, and that means I’m getting to urge to go for a dip in a flower bath. When you’re quite disgustingly rich, like I am, you do get these sorts of urges. Last year I just got a strange craving to fill up the pool with begonias and go for a swim. No …

Idea Vs Reality

Remember when you were a kid, and you dreamed of having a glossy private office in a skyscraper? You know: the giant mahogany desk, the extravagant decor, and the mid-century couch with marble-topped coffee table for guests. I don’t know who these guests in question were supposed to be, but presumably that were there to …

Over the drains

Either I am seriously missing something or my mum has completely lost it. I just do not get her sometimes. Last night was Bella’s birthday party, and my mum knows that Bella is my best friend, so she said I could stay late and catch a tram home. It’s not a big deal, I do …

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 …
