Kitchen Culture

Kitchens: such an archetypal space, embedded in the deepest of childhood memories and most vivid of adult encounters with caring for others and one’s self. Maybe that’s putting it in slightly pretentious terms, but it’s true. I don’t think it’s going too far to say that the kitchen is the heart of the home. I …

Smile and Wave

And now, I hold ultimate power over everything…I guess. I control the horizontal and the vertical. I know all, and I see all, except for the ‘know all’ part because I’m a week in and I do not have a clue what I’m doing. They just asked me to find a decent company in Melbourne …

Hurtful Window Thoughts

Anyway…it hurts, though. Like, I can’t even think straight. I was driving a client around today and she was saying something about frameless glass balustrades. I’m usually interested in that stuff, because glass is cool and renovations are fun, but I was trying to listen and my headache was just so bad. But it was …

Tomas Was Very Cross

In the last episode I watched with my kids, Tomas was carrying a shipment of hyperbaric chambers from a Melbourne company. Tomas asked his driver what hyperbaric therapy was, and the guy explained that oxygen chambers can be used for people with breathing and other health  problems. Tomas said that he had trouble breathing sometimes …

Easy Drama

The ‘great’ Australian Trade-Off? More like…the lame Australian Trade-Off, heh-heh. Nailed it. I will admit, here and nowhere else, that I’ve never seen a single episode. But I got hired for this review gig by blagging about it, so I guess I better scan a few other reviews so I can make it sound legit. …

Human Office Things

Hello, yes, I am human. The things I like are the water cooler talk and the watching of the Neat-Flicks and the ritual of courtships. Yep. Nailed it. And now, I need to get a job like the others. Back when I was just a simple computer I didn’t need a job…or rather, my job …

Topknots The Best

We have have no need of haircuts! Of course we do not need such things. For one thing, we all have unsurpassed skills with the blade, and thus the thought of someone else coming near our head with sharp objects, under the impression that they are helping… laughable. And then there’s the idea of letting …

The Ultimate Room

This shall be the ULTIMATE UTILITY ROOM. It shall be a room like no other, full of utility and wonder and grandness on a grand scale. It’ll also be the only room n the entire apartment, because I’m tearing down the walls to make it the ‘ULTIMATE UTILITY ROOM’ trademark pending. I see no reason …
