It is truly a testament to our age that I had the following thought today: "Thank God I have two or three social media accounts that I can whinge about study on. Otherwise I would totally start burning people out." What I'm realising this week is probably a confirmation of what I already knew - not being around people makes... Continue reading

I'm not sure if it's the hot-cold-hot-hot-cold spring air, or the heady scent of jasmine floating about the suburb, but I just can't seem to get a small collection of men out of my head. I'm used to having one or two cute men floating around my head in the background while I go about the daily grind. But right... Continue reading

When you're single and you meet someone of the appropriate age and gender there's a kind of dance you do. You smile, you flirt, you ask questions and listen patiently in a friendly, non-committal/unneedy sort of way. You let the conversation develop, sometimes helping it along. You laugh at the right jokes, you fire back witty (but not to witty)... Continue reading

This is one of a small collection of 'unpublished' blog posts I have half written this year. This one particularly amuses me because I recall writing it in a Alanis-inspired, wine fuelled, at-home dancing rampage. The original date on it was Tuesday (!!), 29 March 2011 11:22:16 pm, however I'm fairly certain that the bulk of it was written in... Continue reading

Overall, I'd say that the biggest, most intimidating item sitting on my 2011 New Years Resolution list is not getting out of credit debt, taking more risks in love or even getting a mortgage. No, it's safe to say that the biggest most intimidating resolution on this list is learning how to ride a bike. The psychological enormity of this... Continue reading

After signing a contract in April, getting a mortgage in May and being an landlord in June I am finally, finally getting ready to be an owner-occupier. My tennants moved out today and tomorrow I commence "The Big Move". And despite my anxiety about having decidedly less money to spend on clothes, cocktails and rockstar haircuts, I am ridiculously excited.... Continue reading

**I wasn't going to publish this, but since drafting it I've had to clean cat poo out of a kitchen sink, deal with a rat said cat slaughtered and presented to me, and slept in, missing a plane for the first time in my life. June. You're a total, utter troll.** Recently, while wallowing in an all encompasing pool of... Continue reading

I just stumbled upon the following words in the depths of my hard drive. The date stamp reads "1/10/2009 10:43pm" and the title "Typology of Love". It's pretty dated, but they were exactly the right words I needed to stumble into tonight. So I thought I best publish them unedited for posterity. -------------------------------------------------------------- Sometimes, it feels like the whole love... Continue reading

Have you ever been at a dinner party, or a team building day and for some reason, someone pipes up and asks you the question - "if you were an animal, what would you be?" This is not a question I've ever been able to answer. At least not properly. My response is usually something along the lines of "Well,... Continue reading

Every so often I feel like breaking up with The Universe. And I know this is a dangerous thing to say with a property contract due to settle on Friday, but this week is shaping up to be one of those weeks. When I talk about 'The Universe' I mean that cosmic force which seems to swim around our lives,... Continue reading

I think you're the first person I've met who preferred Tim. Most preferred Bill ;)

A number of weeks ago I plonked my somewhat boozed behind on a friends couch and we began to watch The Goodies. As we watched, I commented that as a child I'd always had a bit of a crush on Greame. You remember The Goodies, don't you? Let me refresh your memory ... (to this day, I am still rather... Continue reading

Lol. I know. It's a little bit scary when you write it all out in a list like that. But I don't think I'm alone in the busy stakes tho.

Lately I've been feeling a bit teary whenever I write down the date. April? How the flip can it be April?? And the second half of April??? Urrrgh. And I tell ya what, it's been a busy three and a half months. There's been three illicit liaisons (none of which were particularly satisfying); one (maybe two) romantic false starts; one...

I have always, always had a problem with pokies. I hate being around them. I have a physical reaction - they give me the heebie jeebies. So you can imagine after reading this comment and others from Tim Costello's article in The Age, I felt some what validated ... People... Continue reading

There are a few songs that have been floating around my life for a long time. And tonight as I reflect on the latest epic fail in my so called love life, I revist this one. I've been rocking to this song since it was released over a decade ago. A little bit sad? Yes. But it is still a... Continue reading

Three months ago I couldn't get someone to sell me Tupperware to save my life. Now? Well to say that I am currently swimming in a vast sea of Tupperware would be an understatement. I feel sheepish, overwhelmed, excited, baffled and yet somehow content. Basically, I feel like I've had an affair with Tupperware. Some time ago I wrote about... Continue reading

When you read a lot of blogs, frequent a lot of social media platforms, and are a total nerd, you're bound to develop the odd digital crush. I'd say I develop one at least once a year. It's strange to think that upon reading someones blog, their status updates or tweets you can start to get an inkling that they... Continue reading

A couple of years ago I read an article about a study that asked a number of people at what age they felt the happiest in their lives. The age when things had fallen into place and they were feeling contented. They averaged the responses and the golden age was 28. And while I know I shouldn't put too much... Continue reading

On a lighter note, heres something I wrote earlier in the week, pre-flood Have you ever been to a restaurant and eaten something so wonderful that every time you go back, you just can't bring yourself to order anything else? Well, I think I'm starting to get that way with travel. Except that instead of the seafood banquet with mud... Continue reading

And you just know how much I love shoveling things ;) And skiing for that matter.

It's pretty rare for a Brisbane resident to go on holiday and have their home town become more exciting than their destination. And yet, as I write this my office is probably filling with water, as are my favorite picnic spots, walks, shops and even my late night fast food distributor. I'm not a particularly anxious person, but from time... Continue reading

Today, boys and girls, I am going to share with you one of the most heinous crimes known to woman: the Root'n'run. It's not quite up there with murder and adultery, but it's way worse than coveting things and worshiping false idols. A Root'n'run is exactly what it sounds like. A gentleman calls upon a lady, takes very brief liberties... Continue reading
