Sacred Office Space

Controversial opinion: office space can be sacred. I mean, that’s if we choose to make it so. More often than not, working environments are saturated with the merely functional in service to commerce, and I understand why that is. But the world is changing, we’ve well and truly left the twentieth century behind, and it’s …

Hairy Son

I know it’s a bit untoward to complain about your kids in a public forum like this… but what if the kid in question is a 28 year-old couch potato who refuses to wash his hair? I mean, if he was insisting on this from some sort of ethical or health-related standpoint, I’m sure I …

A Worthy Career

I certainly hate lightning mages, so very much. Always strutting around the castle grounds like they owned the place, just because what they did was flashier than the rest of us. I had a full-time gig ripening grapes in the royal vineyard, but did I get any credit? Not a single pat on the back, …

No Foot Problems!

I must admit, I got a little bit suspicious of the team leaders when they called a special meeting at 2pm on a Thursday and told us that diseases weren’t real; they were just people pretending, because they all want attention. Okay, first…it’s really hard to get off work at that time. I had to …

No Boat For Me

I don’t ask for much from life: just some a couple of good friends, a calling that makes me feel like I’m making a difference, and a very large boat that’s all mine. That’s basically nothing! All my friends have boats, and they like nothing better than to rub it in. “Come out boating with …

Michael Landry, 64, had long been an avid protester of blocked drains in Melbourne. But it would seem that fate was to have the last laugh, as Landry was woken up on early Sunday …

You’ll All Sea!

One day, they’ll all see. And when they all see, they’ll all…sea. Hah! Yeah, so, big deal, I tried to activate a crazy device that would not only melt all the polar ice caps at once, but also transform mankind into an aquatic species with gills and flippers. Personally, I don’t think that’s a huge …

Penguin Capers

You know that feeling when you’re trying to read a book and you keep reading the same sentence over and over again, because you’re tired or distracted? That’s what it’s been like for me, trying to watch Week of Our Lives in the living room. The sun streams in there late in the day, it …

Changing Human Dwellings

I find these ‘Human Classes’ terribly difficult sometimes. The teacher slaps our hands/tentacles/mandibles with the ruler if we mess up too many times. My homework for the week is to simulate the experience of getting a phone call, and then have a conversation with a  human partner about renovating the bathroom. And it has to …
