Officially Zen

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the concept of zen and how it can be applied in the workplace. It all started when I was helping my mate Brianna move house and we found an old book behind her long-stationary bookshelf, called Zen and the Art of Making a Living. It sets out various …

Date Divide

I’ve been dating this girl who’s pretty cool, although there’s a slight problem, which is that I don’t quite understand what she does for a living. According to her, she works as a buyer for a distributor of cutting-edge health devices. What does that even mean? It’s not that I don’t believe her, it’s just …

The Right Bag

Social media influencers, man. It sure is a weird world that we’re living in. Child-Free Bambino just uploaded a new music video – This Is Moldova- where he basically just walks through a set filled with replicas of Moldova’s famous landmarks, and now tourism in that country has gone up over 600% overnight. Overnight! What …

Worthy of the Road

So, the normal progression of things is to make your car worthy for the road – to make it roadworthy, as it were. They have roadworthy certificates in this place for that exact reason, to ensure that no cars are on the road but are anything less than worthy. I had assumed that this dimension …

Glass Repair Wizardry

Repairing glass is something that, seemingly, should be impossible. Glass is a precious snowflake of an object, and thus once its feelings are hurt (or it’s shattered into many pieces), that should be it. Sweep it up, triple-bag it so it doesn’t do anyone serious harm and get some new windows that aren’t smashed. And …

Moon Boxes

Well, now that we’re public, the discrimination has begun. If people suspect that our actions or purchases are for the good work of our glorious future lunar kingdom, they have begun a campaign of reluctance or outright refusal, seemingly to break our spirits. The other day I called in a landscaper to do some work …

The Door Store

Who knew there were so many types of doors? Not me, that’s for sure. If I had, I probably would have asked a friend to accompany me on my trip to the door store for moral support. As it stands, I’ve come home empty handed and thoroughly overwhelmed by the options. At least I’ve learned …

Windows On The Bus

It’s always interesting catching the bus at peak hour. ‘Interesting’ is one word for it, anyway. I can think of a few others that are just as descriptive – ‘trying’, ‘taxing’ and ‘boring’, for example. Nobody (myself included) wants to talk or even make eye contact, except a select few who invariably have some neurotic …

Thanks, Donna!

Probably the most inspiring musical lyrics I ever heard were from She Works Hard for the Money by Donna Summer, from her album with the same title. The lyric that really grabbed me was when Donna Summer sang “She works hard for the money…” Yeah, that’d be the main one, although when she followed up …
