Dragon Rider

The other day I saw a sticker on someone’s car that said, “My other ride is a dragon”, which got me thinking about how lucky they must be. I didn’t even realise that dragons were real, let alone that you could own them like cars. I’m not really sure why they were driving at all. …

How Thyme Flies

Well, well, well…would you look at the thyme. It’s growing well this year, despite the heat we’ve had over the last few days. Gosh, growing plants without magic is easy. And there I was, travelling from village to village on my broomstick, casting spells of minor enhancement on people’s herb gardens for a small fee. …

The Car ‘Show’

Every year I show up the the automotive Christmas parade and forget to bring the popcorn. This year I need to set a reminder on my phone, or something, because they never actually sell popcorn there and that’s a massive wasted opportunity. First year was the one where Santa was missing, so they did the …

High Concept Interiors

There’s a lot of talk about trends in interior design. You know the type of headline: ‘20 Top Kitchen Design Trends for 2020’, ‘New Cabinet Colours Trending this Summer’ and the like. But what about concepts? I want to see a listing of the most fully realised and beautifully executed concept interiors. I’m picturing a …

Future is Now

It’s interesting how the ‘future’ – or rather, the present, which was formerly the future – doesn’t really look like we thought it would. Even as recently as twenty years ago, most people were still picturing the future as having a glossy, artificial and geometric aesthetic. Just look at the video clip for Oops!… I …

Bored Room

Why did I sign up to be on this board? Oh, that’s right… the money. Well, I’m starting to think that money isn’t everything. Money goes a long way, sure, but are fabulous riches really worth it if you have to spend so much time with these insufferable drivel mongers? I can barely remember what …

Dusty Drain Clogged

The plumbing in this RV is something I don’t even want to think about. Oscar and Reggie empty the tanks, and otherwise the pipes and sinks drain just fine. So when I went to wash up the breakfast dishes this morning, I had an unpleasant surprise when the drain refused to…well, drain. I suppose this …

Behold the Ghost Ship!

I should probably be careful around the sea. As a spooky skeleton, I don’t actually think I float like people do, because there’s nothing ‘inside’ me, if you get the science. No air, no gas; I’d just sink right to the bottom and find a new career spooking cuttlefish. And that sounds a bit boring. …

True Job Satisfaction

I am ALL about young people getting fulfilling jobs. Not that it’s not a noble cause to begin with, but I read an article written about millennials (that’s me!) where it said that we’re all obsessed with finding career fulfilment and enjoying every day of our jobs, instead of working hard to support a family …
