Conventional Cooling Tips

Folks, I’m about to blow your minds with my wisdom. And that wisdom is: exaporative cooling through damp clothing. I know. Lap it up. Take a moment to collect your synapses from where they lie on the floor. And when you’re done, I’ll actually provide some context so you know what I’m  talking about. This …

A Roadworthy Union

I used to think I was the only person I knew who’d memorised the entire Roadworthy Certificate Regulation Handbook – every single edition since the RWC was invented. I even have several notebooks full of detailed descriptions of every single change made in each of the editions, and my private thoughts on whether the changes …

Hail, Go Away

Hail is the worst. In fact, on my official list of weather conditions that are the worst, hail just went right up to number one. Wind used to be at number one, but at least wind mostly doesn’t try to kill you. Hail usually comes in really hot weather, so you run outside because you …

Congrats to Jeff

Things were right back to basics for the finale of The Great Australian Trade-Off, and I can see why. This season has been a bit of a weird one in terms of ratings, reception, all of that. And it’s all down to the weird, non-tradie things they’ve made people do. So we get to the …

My Frosted Dwelling

What’s the point of being fabulously wealthy if you can’t do silly, avant-garde things with your money? I’ll freely admit that I’m rather bored, and this fills my time. You see what happens when you inherit billions of dollars, you’re making more every day, you’ve got a huge house and a private cruise ship and …

Solar in the City

It really is strange what people will go to see at the theatre nowadays. Now, I’m all for representation in movies and all, but if I was part of the specific demographic seen in ‘Crazy Rich Locals’, I’m not sure how I’d feel. All those rich locals, who are also crazy, spending money on elaborate …

Modern but New

What’s something really modern, but it also might have existed in ancient times? Like, in ancient Rome, where they had vending machines and steam power, maybe. I really need to come up with something for my essay that I didn’t know I was getting. All of a sudden our professor has decided that empires have …

Decor Daydreams

You know when your house feels too clean? Okay, maybe you don’t. The few people I’ve expressed this to didn’t seem to relate to my problem at all. I guess I mean ‘clean’ in a stylistic sense, rather than a literal state of not being dirty. Basically, my pad is not grunge enough for my …

Carrie’s Boat Guy

Carrie just needs to NOT. Like, she just needs to not even, because at this moment like I can’t even, and if I can’t even, then Carrie needs to…like, I don’t even know. Everyone knows that Carrie’s parents are super not rich, like, not poor, but not rich. They drive her to school in a …

Ho-Hum Hair

School goes back in a few weeks, and I cannot be rocking up with the same hairstyle I had last year. Mum’s being so annoying about it, though – I swear she thinks she’s the only person in the world who understands fashion. She thinks she’s so cutting edge because she rejects trends, but it …
